Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On November 12, 2013, Capstead Mortgage Corporation (the Company) entered into a Sales Agreement (the Agreement) with Meyers Associates, LP (doing business as Brinson Patrick, a division of Meyers Associates, L.P.) (the Sales Manager) in connection with the issuance and sale of shares of the Companys common stock, par value $0.01 per share, and Series E preferred stock, par value $0.10 per share (Series E Preferred Stock), from time to time through the Sales Manager. The Sales Manager is not required to arrange for the purchase or sale of any specific number of shares or dollar amount of such securities.
The Company has agreed to provide indemnification and contribution to the Sales Manager against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. All sales made pursuant to the Agreement will be reported in the Companys Securities Exchange Act of 1934 reports.
Subject to direction from the Company as to the amount and timing of sales, sales pursuant to the Agreement may be effected on a daily basis. The compensation to the Sales Manager for sales of securities under the Agreement, including both common stock and Series E Preferred Stock, shall be at the following commission rates:
|||3.0% of the gross sales price per share (sales proceeds) for the first $8 million of aggregate sales proceeds raised in each sales period;|
|||2.5% of sales proceeds for the next $4 million of aggregate sales proceeds raised in each sales period;|
|||2.0% of sales proceeds for the next $88 million of aggregate sales proceeds raised in each sales period; and|
|||1.0% of sales proceeds for any additional aggregate sales proceeds raised in each sales period.|
Notwithstanding the commission structure described above, the Company and the Sales Manager can mutually agree in writing to modify the commission rates, but such modified rates cannot exceed the rates described above at each applicable level. For purposes of determining the appropriate commission rates, the initial sales period began on March 10, 2008 and will end on December 31, 2014, and each subsequent sales period shall be for a two year period, commencing on January 1 and ending on December 31 of the following calendar year. The remaining proceeds, after further deduction for any transaction fees imposed by any governmental or self-regulatory organization in respect to such sale, shall constitute the net proceeds to the Company for such shares of stock. The commission rate is currently set at a maximum of 1.0% of sales proceeds.
The offering of the Companys common stock and Series E Preferred Stock pursuant to the Agreement will terminate upon the termination of the Agreement. The Agreement may be terminated by the Company or by the Sales Manager upon written notice and in certain other circumstances specified therein.
The foregoing summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
