In connection with the formation of Corbus Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. in December 2013, certain affiliates of Aegis Capital Corp. (“Aegis” or the “Placement Agent”) and certain other parties not affiliated with the Company 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 of common stock 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 has a right to appoint one member of our board of directors for a two-year term (the “Aegis Nominee”). David Hochman was appointed as the Aegis Nominee.

On June 21, 2014, we entered into a consulting agreement with Orchestra Medical Ventures, LLC (“Orchestra”), of which David Hochman is Managing Partner. The agreement provided that Orchestra rendered 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. The consulting agreement expired on April 11, 2015 and the Company is not obligated to make future payments.

The Company entered into a non-exclusive financial advisory agreement with Aegis under which the Company agreed to pay Aegis $200,000 upon the execution of the agreement, which commenced on June 1, 2015 and expires on November 30, 2015.
