In connection with the formation of Corbus Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. in December 2013, certain affiliates of Aegis Capital Corp. (the “Placement Agent”) and certain other parties not affiliated with us or the Placement Agent subscribed for an aggregate of 6,000,000 shares of common stock for which they paid an aggregate of $120,000 ($0.02 per share), including David Hochman, one of our directors who purchased 450,000 shares and whose family trust purchased 90,000 shares of common stock.


Following the Initial Closing of the 2014 Private Placement, which took place on April 11, 2014, the Placement Agent had a right to appoint one member of the Company’s board of directors for a two-year term (the “Aegis Nominee”). David Hochman was appointed as the Aegis Nominee.


On March 21, 2014, the Company entered into a consulting agreement with Orchestra Medical Ventures, LLC (“Orchestra”), of which David Hochman is Managing Partner. The agreement provided that Orchestra would render a variety of consulting and advisory services relating principally to identifying and evaluating strategic relationships, licensing opportunities, and business strategies. Orchestra was compensated at the rate of $5,000 per month for twelve months, payable quarterly in advance. During the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company paid Orchestra $15,000. The consulting agreement expired on April 11, 2015 and the Company is not obligated to make future payments.


As of June 30, 2015, one of the members of the Company’s scientific advisory board was considered an affiliate of the Company as he owned more than 10% of the Company’s common stock at that date. This individual’s ownership of the Company’s common stock was less than 10% as of June 30, 2016.
