Item 1.01.     Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


On October 13, 2015, Bridgeline Digital, Inc. entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with accredited investors pursuant to which Bridgeline Digital may sell up to an aggregate of 680,884 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, (the “Common Stock”) at a purchase price of $1.00 per share. Bridgeline Digital expects to sell a total of 680,000 shares of Common Stock, and the gross proceeds to Bridgeline Digital at the closing of this private placement are expected to be $680,000.


The shares of Common Stock issued in the transaction are restricted securities and may be sold only pursuant to Rule 144 or in another transaction exempt from the registration requirements under the Securities Act of 1933. Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, Bridgeline Digital has agreed to provide piggyback registration rights with respect to the shares of Common Stock purchased in the transaction in the event Bridgeline Digital files a registration statement, with certain limited exceptions.


A copy of the Purchase Agreement will be included as an exhibit to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2015. The foregoing description of the exhibit does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such document, which is incorporated by reference.

See the disclosure set forth in Item 1.01 above, which is incorporated herein by reference.


The securities offered, issued and sold pursuant to the private placement were issued without registration and are subject to restrictions under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the securities laws of certain states, in reliance on the private offering exemptions contained in Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933 and on Regulation D promulgated thereunder, and in reliance on similar exemptions under applicable state laws as a transaction not involving a public offering.
