Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On September 27, 2013, September 30, October 2, and October 3, 2013, Cryoport, Inc. (the “Registrant”) entered into definitive agreements for the conversion of certain outstanding unsecured convertible promissory notes (“Notes”) held by certain institutional and accredited investors (the “Investors”) pursuant to the offer letter from the Registrant and Letters of Tender and Exchange submitted by the Investors (the “Exchange Documents”).


Pursuant to the Exchange Documents, the Investors converted an aggregate of $4,127,202 of outstanding principal and interest under the Notes into 20,636,011 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.20 per Unit, with each Unit consisting of (i) one share of common stock of the Registrant (“Common Stock”) and (ii) one warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.37 per share. The warrants are exercisable beginning on March 31, 2014 and have a term of five years from date of issuance. The aggregate amount converted includes $101,945 and $202,740 of outstanding principal and interest under Notes respectively held by Richard G. Rathmann, a director, and GBR Investments, LLC, in which Mr. Rathmann is the manager.


Emergent Financial Group, Inc. served as the Registrant’s placement agent in connection with the original placement of the unsecured convertible promissory notes and earned a commission of 9% of the original principal balance of such notes, or $338,382 at the time of the original issuance of such notes and was issued a warrant to purchase 1,911,259 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.20 per share upon the conversion of such notes. Emergent Financial Group, Inc. did not receive any compensation with respect to the Notes issued to Richard G. Rathmann or GBR Investments, LLC or the conversion of such Notes.


The foregoing summary of the terms and conditions of the Exchange Documents and the warrants does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of each of the aforementioned documents which will be filed as exhibits with the Registrant’s Form 10-Q filing for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2013.


In addition, two directors, Stephen Wasserman and Richard G. Rathmann, elected to convert $20,000 and $24,556, respectively, of outstanding board of director fees owed to them by the Registrant into 100,000 and 122,778 Units, respectively, at the same exchange rate and on the same terms as provided to the Investors.
