On February 20, 2004, Antares Pharma, Inc. (the Company) completed the second and final closing of a private placement of its common stock and warrants to several investors. In this second closing, the Company sold an additional 5,089,950 shares of its common stock, par value $.01 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of $5,089,950. The Company also issued to the investors five-year warrants (the Warrants) to purchase an aggregate of 1,696,647 shares of the Companys common stock at an exercise price of $1.25 per share. In the two closings, the Company sold an aggregate of 14,639,950 shares of common stock, issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 4,879,980 shares of common stock and received total aggregate proceeds of $14,639,950.
