Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.


On June 4, 2024, Genelux Corporation (the “Company”) made available the corporate presentation attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 (the “Corporate Presentation”). Information from the Corporate Presentation may also be used by the management of the Company in future meetings regarding the Company. For important information about forward-looking statements in the Corporate Presentation, see the slide titled “Forward-Looking Statements” in Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto.


The information contained or incorporated in this Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing to this Current Report on Form 8-K.


Item 8.01 Other Events.


On June 3, 2024, the Underwriters (as defined below) exercised in part their option to purchase (i) an additional 625,000 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) and (ii) accompanying warrants to purchase 625,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Warrants”), with an exercise price of $5.25 per share, at a combined offering price of $4.00 per share and accompanying Warrant, pursuant to an underwriting agreement dated as of May 23, 2024 (the “Underwriting Agreement”) by and between the Company and Guggenheim Securities, LLC, as representative of the several underwriters named therein (the “Underwriters”, and such exercise, the “Overallotment Exercise”).


The net proceeds to the Company from the Overallotment Exercise were approximately $2.35 million, after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company. All of the Shares and the Warrants were sold by the Company.


The securities described above were offered and issued pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-276847) and the related prospectus and prospectus supplement.


Each Warrant has an initial exercise price per share of $5.25, subject to certain adjustments as provided in the Warrant. The Warrants may be exercised at any time until exercised in full. A holder (together with its affiliates and other attribution parties) may not exercise any portion of a Warrant to the extent that immediately prior to or after giving effect to such exercise the holder would own more than 9.99% of the Company’s outstanding Common Stock immediately after exercise, which percentage may be changed at the holder’s election to a lower or higher percentage not in excess of 19.99% (if exceeding such percentage would result in a change of control under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(b) or any successor rule) upon 61 days’ notice to the Company subject to the terms of the Warrants.


The foregoing description of the terms of the Warrants does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Warrant, which is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 24, 2024, and which is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the opinion of Cooley LLP relating to the legality of the issuance and sale of the securities in the Overallotment Exercise is filed as Exhibit 5.1 hereto.

Ladies and Gentlemen:


We have acted as counsel to Genelux Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the sale by the Company of (i) 625,000 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 (“Common Stock”), and (ii) warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase up to 625,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Warrant Shares”), pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration Statement No. 333-276847) (the “Registration Statement), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), the base prospectus included in the Registration Statement (the “Base Prospectus”), and the prospectus supplement relating to the Shares, the Warrants and the Warrant Shares filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act (together with the Base Prospectus, the “Prospectus”).


In connection with this opinion, we have examined and relied upon (a) the Registration Statement and the Prospectus, (b) the form of Warrant filed as an exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K with the Commission on May 24, 2024, (c) the Company’s certificate of incorporation and bylaws, each as currently in effect, and (d) such other documents, records, opinions, certificates, memoranda and instruments as in our judgment are necessary or appropriate to enable us to render the opinion expressed below. We have assumed the genuineness of all signatures, the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals, the conformity to originals of all documents submitted to us as copies, the accuracy, completeness and authenticity of certificates of public officials and the due authorization, execution and delivery of all documents by all persons other than the Company where authorization, execution and delivery are prerequisites to the effectiveness thereof. As to certain factual matters, we have relied upon a certificate of an officer of the Company and have not independently verified such matters.


With regard to our opinion as to the Warrants and the Warrant Shares, we express no opinion to the extent that future issuances of securities of the Company, antidilution adjustments to outstanding securities of the Company or other matters cause the Warrants to be exercisable for more shares of Common Stock than the number available for issuance by the Company. Further, we have assumed the exercise price of the Warrants will not be adjusted to an amount below the par value per share of the Common Stock.


Our opinion is expressed only with respect to the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and, as to the Warrants constituting binding obligations of the Company, the laws of the State of New York. We express no opinion to the extent that any other laws are applicable to the subject matter hereof and express no opinion and provide no assurance as to compliance with any federal or state securities law, rule or regulation.

With regard to our opinion concerning the Warrants constituting binding obligations of the Company:


(i) Our opinion is subject to, and may be limited by, (a) applicable bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium, fraudulent conveyance, debtor and creditor, and similar laws which relate to or affect creditors’ rights generally, and (b) general principles of equity (including, without limitation, concepts of materiality, reasonableness, good faith and fair dealing) regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law;


(ii) Our opinion is subject to the qualification that (a) the enforceability of provisions for indemnification or limitations on liability may be limited by applicable law and by public policy considerations, and (b) the availability of specific performance, an injunction or other equitable remedies is subject to the discretion of the court before which the request is brought;


(iii) We express no opinion with respect to any provision of the Warrants that: (a) relates to the subject matter jurisdiction of any federal court of the United States of America or any federal appellate court to adjudicate any controversy related to the Warrants; (b) specifies provisions may be waived in writing, to the extent that an oral agreement or implied agreement by trade practice or course of conduct has been created that modifies such provision; (c) contains a waiver of an inconvenient forum; (d) provides for liquidated damages, default interest, late charges, monetary penalties, prepayment or make-whole payments or other economic remedies; (e) relates to advance waivers of claims, defenses, rights granted by law, or notice, opportunity for hearing, evidentiary requirements, statutes of limitations, trial by jury, service of process or procedural rights; (f) restricts non-written modifications and waivers; (g) provides for the payment of legal and other professional fees where such payment is contrary to law or public policy; (h) relates to exclusivity, election or accumulation of rights or remedies; or (i) provides that provisions of the Warrants are severable to the extent an essential part of the agreed exchange is determined to be invalid and unenforceable; and


(iv) We express no opinion as to whether a state court outside of the State of New York or a federal court of the United States would give effect to the choice of New York law or jurisdiction provided for in the Warrants.


On the basis of the foregoing, in reliance thereon and subject to the qualifications set forth herein, we are of the opinion that (i) the Shares, when sold and issued against payment therefor in accordance with the Registration Statement and the Prospectus, will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, (ii) the Warrants, when duly executed and delivered by the Company against payment therefor as described in the Registration Statement and the Prospectus, will be binding obligations of the Company, and (iii) the Warrant Shares, when issued and paid for in accordance with the terms of the Warrants, will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.


This opinion is limited to the matters expressly set forth in this letter, and no opinion should be implied, or may be inferred, beyond the matters expressly stated. This opinion speaks only as to law and facts in effect or existing as of the date hereof and we undertake no obligation or responsibility to update or supplement this letter to reflect any facts or circumstances that may hereafter come to our attention or any changes in law that may hereafter occur.


We consent to the reference to our firm under the heading “Legal Matters” in the Prospectus and to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed with the Commission for incorporation by reference in the Registration Statement. In giving such consents, we do not thereby admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act or the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder.
