Item 1.01.     Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On December 15, 2022, BlackSky Technology Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into an Open Market Sale Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with Jefferies LLC (the “Sales Agent”), pursuant to which the Company may offer and sell from time to time through the Sales Agent the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), having an aggregate offering price of up to $75,000,000 (the "Shares").
Upon delivery of a placement notice to the Sales Agent and subject to the terms and conditions of the Sales Agreement, the sales, if any, of the Shares may be made in negotiated transactions or transactions that are deemed to be “at the market offerings” as defined in Rule 415(a)(4) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), including without limitation sales made directly on the New York Stock Exchange. Under the Sales Agreement, the Sales Agent will use commercially reasonable efforts to sell the Shares from time to time consistent with its normal trading and sales practices, based upon instructions from the Company (including any price, time or size limits or other customary parameters or conditions the Company may impose). The Company is not obligated to sell any Shares under the Sales Agreement.
Any sales of the Shares will be made pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-267889) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on October 14, 2022, as amended on December 13, 2022, and declared effective on December 15, 2022. The Company filed a prospectus supplement, dated December 15, 2022, with the SEC in connection with the offer and sale of the Shares.
The Company or Sales Agent may suspend or terminate the Sales Agreement upon written notice to the other party in accordance with the terms of the Sales Agreement.
The Sales Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, and indemnification rights and obligations of the parties. The Sales Agreement provides that the Sales Agent will be entitled to compensation for their services equal to 3.0% of the gross proceeds of all shares sold through the Sales Agent under the Sales Agreement. Under the terms of the Sales Agreement, the Company has agreed to indemnify the Sales Agent against certain specified types of liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, to contribute to payments the Sales Agent may be required to make in respect of these liabilities, and to reimburse the Sales Agent for certain expenses.
The above summary of the Sales Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Sales Agreement, a copy which is attached as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference. The legal opinion of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Professional Corporation relating to the shares of Common Stock being offered pursuant to the Sales Agreement is filed as Exhibit 5.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of any offer to buy the securities discussed herein, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
