Up to $22,100,000 of Common Stock
This prospectus supplement (this “Prospectus Supplement”) updates and amends certain information contained in the prospectus supplement dated February 11, 2020, as supplemented by the prospectus supplement dated March 17, 2020 (collectively, the “Original Supplements”), to the prospectus dated February 7, 2020 (the “Base Prospectus” and, together with the Original Supplements, the “Original Prospectus”), relating to the offer and sale of shares of our common stock, par value $0.01 per share, having an aggregate offering price of up to $15.7 million from time to time through H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC, or Wainwright, as sales agent, in “at-the-market” offerings (as defined in Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended) pursuant to the at-the-market common stock sales agreement (the “Sales Agreement”), dated February 11, 2020, that we entered into with Wainwright.
This Prospectus Supplement should be read in conjunction with the Original Prospectus, and is qualified by reference to the Original Prospectus, except to the extent that the information presented herein supersedes the information contained in the Original Prospectus. This Prospectus Supplement is not complete without, and may only be delivered or used in connection with, the Original Prospectus, including any amendments or supplements thereto.
Our common stock is listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “OPGN.” On September 3, 2020, the last reported sale price of our common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market was $2.15 per share.
The aggregate market value of our outstanding common stock held by non-affiliates pursuant to General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3 was approximately $66,557,266, which was calculated based on 19,799,349 shares of common stock outstanding as of August 24, 2020, of which 19,749,931 shares were held by non-affiliates, and a price per share of $3.37, which was the closing sale price of our common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market on August 7, 2020. During the 12 calendar months prior to and including the date of this Prospectus Supplement, we have sold $15,698,528 of securities pursuant to General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3.
We are filing this Prospectus Supplement to update and amend the Original Prospectus to update the dollar amount of shares we may sell under General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3. We may currently offer and sell shares of our common stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $6,401,472 from time to time under General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3. If our public float increases such that we may offer and sell more than $6,401,472 under General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3, we will file another prospectus supplement prior to making sales in excess of such amount.
Investing in our securities involves a high degree of risk. See “Risk Factors” beginning on page S-4 of this prospectus supplement, and under the same heading in the accompanying prospectus.
Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of this prospectus supplement or the accompanying prospectus. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

Investing in our securities involves a high degree of risk. You should consider carefully the risks and uncertainties incorporated by reference herein, together with all of the other information in, or incorporated by reference in, this prospectus, including the Original Prospectus, and our financial statements and related notes incorporated by reference herein, before making an investment decision. If any of these risks occur, our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects could be materially and adversely affected. In that event, the trading price of our common stock could decline and you could lose part or all of your investment.
USE OF PROCEEDS
We may issue and sell shares of our common stock having aggregate sales proceeds of up to $6.4 million from time to time. The amount of proceeds from this offering will depend upon the number of shares of common stock sold and the market price at which they are sold. There can be no assurance that we will be able to sell any shares under or fully utilize the Sales Agreement with the Sales Agent.
The primary programs and activities to which we intend to devote the net proceeds of offerings under this prospectus are:
|·||support research and development and regulatory activities in support of our anticipated FDA 510(k) submissions for the Acuitas AMR Gene Panel test and the Acuitas Lighthouse Software;|
|·||commercialize our products, with a focus on the Unyvero platform and diagnostic tests, and the Acuitas AMR Gene Panel tests;|
|·||support further development and commercialization of the Ares Genetics database and Acuitas Lighthouse Software;|
|·||fund directed efforts to the customers and collaborators relating to our products and services;|
|·||invest in manufacturing and operations infrastructure to support sales of products; and|
|·||the balance, if any, for general corporate purposes.|
This expected use of net proceeds from this offering represents our intentions based upon our current plans and business conditions, which could change in the future as our plans and business conditions evolve. Our management will have broad discretion in the application of the net proceeds from this offering and could use them for purposes other than those contemplated at the time of this offering. Our stockholders may not agree with the manner in which our management chooses to allocate and spend the net proceeds. Moreover, our management may use the net proceeds for corporate purposes that may not result in our being profitable or increase our market value.
Our net tangible book value as of June 30, 2020 was approximately $(4.5) million, or $(0.25) per share. Net tangible book value per share is determined by dividing our total tangible assets, less total liabilities, by the number of shares of our common stock outstanding as of June 30, 2020. Dilution with respect to net tangible book value per share represents the difference between the amount per share paid by purchasers in this offering and the net tangible book value per share of our common stock immediately after this offering.
After giving effect to the assumed sale of 2,976,744 shares of our common stock in this offering at an assumed offering price of $2.15 per share, based on the last reported sale price of our common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market on September 2, 2020, and after deducting estimated offering commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us, our as adjusted net tangible book value as of June 30, 2020 would have been approximately $1.7 million or $0.08 per share. This represents an immediate increase in net tangible book value of $0.33 per share to existing stockholders and immediate dilution of $2.07 per share to purchasers purchasing our securities in this offering at the offering price. The following table illustrates this dilution on a per share basis:
|Assumed offering price per share of common stock||$||2.15|
|Net tangible book value per share of as June 30, 2020||$||(0.25||)|
|Increase in net tangible book value per share attributable to this offering||$||0.33|
|As adjusted net tangible book value per share as of June 30, 2020, after giving effect to this offering||$||0.08|
|Dilution per share to investors in this offering||$||2.07|
The above table assumes for illustrative purposes that an aggregate of 2,976,744 shares of our common stock are sold during the term of the Sales Agreement with Wainwright at a price of $2.15 per share, the last reported sale price of our common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market on September 3, 2020, for aggregate gross proceeds of $6.4 million. The shares subject to the Sales Agreement with Wainwright are being sold from time to time at various prices. A $1.00 increase in the assumed offering price of $2.15 per share of common stock, assuming all of our common stock in the aggregate amount of $6.4 million during the term of the Sales Agreement with Wainwright is sold at that price, would increase our as adjusted net tangible book value after this offering by $0.004 per share, and the dilution per share to investors purchasing shares in this offering would be approximately $3.07 per share, after deducting commissions and estimated aggregate offering expenses payable by us. Similarly, a $1.00 decrease in the assumed offering price of $2.15 per share of common stock, assuming all of our common stock in the aggregate amount of $6.4 million during the term of the Sales Agreement with Wainwright is sold at that price, would decrease our as adjusted net tangible book value after this offering by $(0.01) per share, and the dilution per share to investors purchasing securities in this offering would be $1.08 per share, after deducting commissions and estimated aggregate offering expenses payable by us. This information is supplied for illustrative purposes only and may differ based on the actual offering price and the actual number of shares offered.
The number of shares of common stock to be outstanding immediately after this offering is based on 17,693,932 shares of our common stock outstanding as of June 30, 2020, and excludes:
|·||143,288 shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of outstanding options granted as of June 30, 2020, under our equity incentive plans at a weighted average exercise price of $70.97 per share;|
|·||1,033,386 shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of outstanding warrants issued as of June 30, 2020, at a weighted average exercise price of $29.82 per share;|
|·||8,151 shares of common stock issuable upon vesting of outstanding restricted stock units granted as of June 30, 2020;|
|·||230,711 shares of common stock available for future issuance under our equity incentive plans as of June 30, 2020;|
|·||1,523,663 shares of common stock issued in an “at the market” equity offering under the Prospectus Supplements and Base Prospectus since June 30, 2020;|
|·||270,000 shares of common stock issued upon the exercise of common warrants issued since June 30, 2020;|
|·||750 shares of common stock issued upon the vesting of restricted stock units since June 30, 2020; and|
|·||311,003 shares of common stock issued upon the conversion of Convertible Notes since June 30, 2020;|
The number of outstanding options, restricted stock units and shares of common stock available for future issuances under our equity incentive plans does not reflect:
|·||the grant of stock options to purchase an aggregate of 1,300,000 shares of our common stock to our executive officers and non-employee members of our board of directors, which such grant was approved outside of our existing equity incentive plans and remains subject to stockholder approval; and|
|·||the expiration of stock options to purchase 226 shares of our common stock since June 30, 2020.|
To the extent that options or warrants outstanding as of June 30, 2020 have been or may be exercised or other shares issued, investors purchasing our common stock in this offering may experience further dilution. In addition, we may choose to raise additional capital due to market conditions or strategic considerations even if we believe we have sufficient funds for our current or future operating plans. To the extent that additional capital is raised through the sale of equity or convertible debt securities, the issuance of these securities could result in further dilution to our stockholders.
