ZAG-S&W, a joint venture between Sullivan & Worcester and Zysman, Aharoni & Gayer, acted as legal advisor to Roth Capital Partners in two matters: Roth Capital’s underwriting of the offering 8 million shares of Class A common stock of LightPath Technologies, Inc. and Roth Capital’s sale of Top Image Systems Ltd.’s convertible notes. On behalf of Aegis Capital Corp., ZAG-S&W represented the financial services company in its role as underwriter of a Rennova Health, Inc. preferred stock offering; in an offering of ordinary shares and warrants of Rosetta Genomics; and in a registered direct offering of American depositary shares on behalf of Medigus, Ltd.

On December 21, it was announced that ZAG-S&W worked with Roth Capital on two matters. First, in the LightPath Technologies (NASDAQ: LPTH) deal, ZAG-S&W represented Roth Capital as sole book-running manager in underwriting an estimated $9.7 million public offering of LightPath Technologies Class A common stock at a price of $1.21 per share, including a fully exercised over-allotment option. The ZAG-S&W team on the deal was Oded Har-Even and Robert V. Condon III.

Earlier in the month, the ZAG-S&W team advised Roth Capital in the sale of $5 million of convertible notes of Top Image Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ: TISA), an innovator of intelligent content processing solutions, to Hale Capital Partners LP.

Har-Even and Condon represented Aegis Capital in its role as underwriter in a $12.4 million offering of convertible preferred stock for Rennova Health (NASDAQ: RNVA), which closed on December 20.

And in November 2016, ZAG-S&W represented Aegis Capital as underwriter in a $4.5 million offering of ordinary shares and warrants by molecular diagnostics company Rosetta Genomics (NASDAQ: ROSG). The team also advised Medigus Ltd. (NASDAQ: MDGS, TASE: MDGS), a medical device company developing minimally invasive endosurgical tools and a leader in direct visualization technology, in a $763,000 registered direct offering of American depositary shares (ADS). The ZAG-S&W team on the Rosetta deal was Oded Har-Even, Robert V. Condon III and Ron Ben-Bassat. On the Medigus offering, the team included Oded Har-Even, Robert V. Condon III, Hila Nahum and Shy Baranov.
