Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On October 5, 2015, Evoke Pharma, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Second Amendment to the Loan and Security Agreement with Square 1 Bank dated May 28, 2014 (the “Second Amendment”), extending the interest-only payment terms an additional twelve months.   All other terms and provisions of the credit facility remain unchanged.


The Second Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Second Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.



Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.


As a result of cash management and At-The-Market equity placements under its At Market Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with MLV & Co. LLC, the Company had $10.7 million in cash as of September 30, 2015, an increase of $0.8 million from June 30, 2015.  This amount is unaudited and preliminary and is subject to completion of financial closing procedures. As a result, this amount may differ from the amount that will be reflected in the Company’s financial statements as of and for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.


The information in this Item 2.02 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.



Item 8.01 Other Events.


The Company estimates that its cash as of September 30, 2015 should be sufficient to fund its operations through October 2016. For the nine months ending September 30, 2015, the Company has sold 932,237 shares of common stock at a weighted average price per share of $4.93 pursuant to the Sales Agreement and received proceeds of approximately $4.5 million, net of commissions and fees.
