Exhibit 10.9




This Amendment Agreement (this Amendment) is made and entered into with intended effectiveness as of October 14, 2020, by and among Tivic Health Systems Inc., a California corporation (the Company), and the parties who are signatories hereto (the Investors).




A.The Company and certain investors (including the Investors) have entered into a Note Purchase Agreement dated as of June 17, 2020 (the “Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company issued Notes (as such term is defined in the Purchase Agreement) to certain investors.


B.Section 6.5 of the Purchase Agreement provides that the Purchase Agreement may be amended with the written consent of the Company and holders of Notes representing more than 50% of the aggregate principal amount of all Notes (the “Requisite Holders”). The undersigned Investors constitute the Requisite Holders.


C.The Company and the undersigned Investors desire to amend the Purchase Agreement so as to, among other things, increase the aggregate principal amount of Notes that can be issued under the Purchase Agreement.




NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the mutual covenants and conditions set forth below, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties to this Amendment hereby agree as follows:


1.                  Amendment of Aggregate Note Amount.


(a)               Section 1.1 of the Purchase Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety and shall read as follows:


“1.1               Issuance of Notes. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, at each Closing (as defined below), the Company shall issue and sell to each Investor participating in such Closing, an unsecured convertible promissory note (each such note, a “Note” and collectively, the “Notes”) in the principal amount set forth opposite each such Investor’s name on Exhibit A attached hereto (the “Principal Amount”), against payment by such Investor to the Company of the Principal Amount. The Company may issue and sell Notes with an aggregate Principal Amount of up to $2,000,000 under this Agreement. The Notes shall each be in substantially the form of Exhibit B attached hereto, except as may otherwise be agreed upon by the Company and an Investor.”


(b)              Section 2.2 of the Purchase Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety and shall read as follows:


“2.2               Subsequent Closings. Subsequent to the Initial Closing, until such time as the aggregate Principal Amount evidenced by all of the Notes equals a total of $2,000,000, the Company may sell additional Notes to such persons or entities as determined by the Company (each such closing, a “Subsequent Closing” and, together with the Initial Closing, each a “Closing”). For purposes of this Agreement, and all other agreements contemplated hereby, any additional purchaser so acquiring Notes shall be deemed to be an “Investor” for purposes of this Agreement, and any Notes so acquired by such additional purchaser shall be deemed to be “Notes” for all purposes hereunder. Exhibit A shall be revised by the Company, without the consent of any other person or entity, to reflect the sale of Notes at all Subsequent Closings. The closing of the purchase and sale of such additional Notes hereunder shall take place on such date as is mutually agreeable to the Company and Investors that are identified on Exhibit A as purchasing Notes representing a majority of the aggregate Principal Amounts of all Notes to be issued at such Subsequent Closing (or at such other time and place as is mutually agreed upon by the Company and such parties)).”





2.                  Miscellaneous.

(b)              Except as specifically amended by this Amendment, the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
