On December 22, 2020, CNS Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

In addition, the Company granted the Underwriter a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 750,000 Shares and/or 375,000 Warrants to cover over-allotments, if any.
Each Share sold in the Offering was sold together with a Warrant to purchase 0.5 shares of Common Stock as a fixed combination. The Shares and accompanying Warrants were sold at a price to the public of $2.00, less underwriting discounts and commissions. The Warrants are exercisable immediately, will expire on December 28, 2025 and have an exercise price of $2.20 per share, subject to anti-dilution and other adjustments for certain stock splits, stock dividends, or recapitalizations.
