Item 1.01

Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.


The information provided under Item 3.02 regarding the unregistered sale of equity securities is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 3.02

Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.


On May 31, 2018, BIO-key International, Inc. (the “Company”, “we” or “us”) received a conversion notice from Wong Kwok Fong to convert 23,508 shares of the Company’s Series A-1 Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series A-1 Preferred”). Each share of Series A-1 Preferred has an original issue price of $100.00 and is convertible into shares of Company common stock (“Common Stock”) at a conversion price of $3.60 per share. The forgoing conversion resulted in the issuance of 653,000 shares of Common Stock. As a result of the forgoing conversion, there are no longer any issued and outstanding shares of Series A-1 Preferred.


On May 31, 2018, we entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Wong Kwok Fong to purchase 7,073 shares of Common Stock in consideration of the conversion of an accrued dividend payable on the Series A-1 Preferred in the amount of $25,463 resulting in a per share purchase price of $3.60. The terms of the Purchase Agreement provided for us to waive the standstill provision (the “Standstill Provision”) included in the securities purchase agreements dated October 29, 2015 and November 11, 2015 by and between the Company and Wong Kwok in order to permit him to purchase the forgoing shares. The Standstill Provision remains in full force and effect and prevents Wong Kwok Fong, either alone or together with any other person, from acquiring additional shares of the Common Stock or any of the Company’s assets, soliciting proxies, or seeking further representation on the Company’s board of directors. Wong Kwok Fong, is the Company’s Managing Director of Hong Kong Operations, a director of the Company, and a principal stockholder of the Company and, therefore, has an interest in the transactions described herein.


The foregoing shares were issued in a private placement transaction pursuant to an exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, without general solicitation or advertising of any kind and without payment of placement agent or brokerage fees to any person.
