(to Prospectus dated August 14, 2020)
Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Up to $200,000,000
This Amendment No. 1 to Prospectus, or this amendment, amends our sales agreement prospectus dated August 14, 2020, or the sales agreement prospectus and together with this amendment, the prospectus. This amendment should be read in conjunction with the sales agreement prospectus, which is to be delivered with this amendment. This amendment amends only those sections of the sales agreement prospectus listed in this amendment; all other sections of the sales agreement prospectus remain as is.
We previously entered into a Capital on Demand™ Sales Agreement, or the original sales agreement, with JonesTrading Institutional Services LLC, or JonesTrading, dated August 7, 2020, relating to the sale of shares of our common stock, par value $0.001 per share, having an aggregate offering price of up to $200,000,000 from time to time through or to JonesTrading, acting as agent or principal. On June 28, 2022, we amended and restated the original sales agreement, or the sales agreement, to add B. Riley Securities, Inc., or B. Riley Securities, with JonesTrading, or the agents, to act as agents or principals thereunder. To date, we have sold $76,193,552 of shares of common stock pursuant to the sales agreement prospectus. As a result, $123,806,448 remain available to be sold pursuant to this prospectus.
Sales of our common stock, if any, under this prospectus, as amended, will be made by any method permitted that is deemed an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act. The agents will act as our sales agents using commercially reasonable efforts consistent with their normal trading and sales practices. There is no arrangement for funds to be received in any escrow, trust or similar arrangement.
The agents will be entitled to compensation at a commission rate of 3.0% of the gross sales price per share sold under the sales agreement. See “Plan of Distribution” beginning on page 4 for additional information regarding the compensation to be paid to the agents. In connection with the sale of the shares of common stock on our behalf, each agent will be deemed to be an “underwriter” within the meaning of the Securities Act, and the compensation of each agent will be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts. We have also agreed to provide indemnification and contribution to the agent with respect to certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act.
Investing in our securities involves a high degree of risk. These risks are discussed under “Risk Factors” beginning on page 2 of this amendment, on page 4 of the sales agreement prospectus and in the documents incorporated by reference into this prospectus.
Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or passed upon the adequacy or accuracy of this amendment or the accompanying sales agreement prospectus. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

|Incorporation of Certain Information by Reference||6|
An investment in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. Before deciding whether to invest in our common stock, you should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described below, together with the information under the heading “Risk Factors” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, all of which are incorporated herein by reference, as updated or superseded by the risks and uncertainties described under similar headings in the other documents that are filed after the date hereof and incorporated by reference into this prospectus, as amended, together with all of the other information contained or incorporated by reference in this prospectus, as amended. The risks and uncertainties we have described are not the only ones we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also affect our operations. Past financial performance may not be a reliable indicator of future performance, and historical trends should not be used to anticipate results or trends in future periods. If any of these risks actually occurs, our business, business prospects, financial condition or results of operations could be seriously harmed. This could cause the trading price of our common stock to decline, resulting in a loss of all or part of your investment. Please also read carefully the section below entitled “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.”
Additional Risks Related to this Offering
The actual number of shares we will issue under the sales agreement, at any one time or in total, is uncertain.
Subject to certain limitations in the sales agreement and compliance with applicable law, we have the discretion to deliver placement notices to either of the agents at any time throughout the term of the sales agreement. The number of shares that are sold by an agent after delivering a placement notice will fluctuate based on the market price of the common stock during the sales period and limits we set with said agent. Because the price per share of each share sold will fluctuate based on the market price of our common stock during the sales period, it is not possible at this stage to predict the number of shares that will be ultimately issued.
We may issue and sell shares of common stock having aggregate sales proceeds of up to $200,000,000 from time to time, before deducting sales agent commissions and expenses. The amount of proceeds from this offering will depend upon the number of shares of our 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 agents.
We currently intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of securities offered by this prospectus, as amended, for general corporate purposes, including the advancement of our drug candidates in clinical trials, regulatory submissions, potential commercial activity, preclinical research and development, capital expenditures, and to meet working capital needs.
Investors are cautioned, however, that expenditures may vary substantially from these uses. Investors will be relying on the judgment of our management, who will have broad discretion regarding the application of the proceeds of this offering. The amounts and timing of our actual expenditures will depend upon numerous factors, including the amount of cash generated by our operations, the amount of competition and other operational factors. We may find it necessary or advisable to use portions of the proceeds from this offering for other purposes.
From time to time, we evaluate these and other factors and we anticipate continuing to make such evaluations to determine if the existing allocation of resources, including the proceeds of this offering, is being optimized. Circumstances that may give rise to a change in the use of proceeds include:
|●||a change in development plan or strategy;|
|●||the addition of new products or applications;|
|●||delays or difficulties with our clinical trials;|
|●||negative results from our clinical trials;|
|●||difficulty obtaining U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval; and|
|●||the availability of other sources of cash including additional offerings, if any.|
Pending other uses, we intend to invest the proceeds to us in investment-grade, interest-bearing securities such as money market funds, certificates of deposit, or direct or guaranteed obligations of the U.S. government, or hold as cash. We cannot predict whether the proceeds invested will yield a favorable, or any, return.
On June 28, 2022, we entered into an Amended and Restated Capital on Demand™ Sales Agreement, or the sales agreement, with JonesTrading and B. Riley Securities, pursuant to which we may, from time to time, offer and sell shares of our common stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $200,000,000. Sales of our common stock, if any, under this prospectus, as amended, may be made in sales deemed to be “at the market offerings” as defined in Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act. To date, we have sold $76,193,552 of shares of common stock pursuant to the sales agreement prospectus. As a result, $123,806,448 remain available to be sold pursuant to this prospectus.
Each time we wish to issue and sell common stock, we will notify either agent of the number of shares to be issued, the dates on which such sales are anticipated to be made, any minimum price below which sales may not be made and other sales parameters as we deem appropriate. Once we have so instructed an agent, unless that agent declines to accept the terms of the notice, each agent has agreed, subject to the terms and conditions of the sales agreement, to use its commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices to sell such shares up to the amount specified on such terms. We may instruct an agent not to sell shares of common stock if the sales cannot be effected at or above the price designated by us in any such instruction. We or either agent may suspend the offering of shares of common stock being made through the applicable agent under the sales agreement upon proper notice to the other party.
We will pay each agent commissions for its services in acting as agent in the sale of our common stock. Each agent will be entitled to compensation at a commission rate equal to 3.0% of the aggregate gross sales price of the shares sold by that agent. Because there is no minimum offering amount required as a condition to close this offering, the actual total public offering amount, commissions and proceeds to us, if any, are not determinable at this time. We have also agreed to reimburse the agents for certain specified expenses, including the fees and disbursements of their legal counsel in an aggregate amount not to exceed $75,000. We estimate that the total expenses for this offering, excluding compensation and reimbursements payable to the agents under the terms of the sales agreement, will be approximately $275,000.
Settlement for sales of common stock will occur on the second business day following the date on which any sales are made or such earlier day as is industry practice for regular-way trading, or on some other date that is agreed upon by us and the applicable agent in connection with a particular transaction, in return for payment of the net proceeds to us. There is no arrangement for funds to be received in an escrow, trust or similar arrangement.
In connection with the sale of the common stock on our behalf, each agent will be deemed to be an “underwriter” within the meaning of the Securities Act and the compensation of each agent will be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts. We have agreed to provide indemnification and contribution to the agents against certain civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act.
The offering of shares of common stock pursuant to the sales agreement will terminate upon the earliest of (i) the sale of all shares of common stock subject to the sales agreement and (ii) the termination of the sales agreement according to its terms by either agent or us, with respect to the applicable agent.
Our common stock is listed on the NYSE American and trades under the symbol “ATNM.” The transfer agent of our common stock is Action Stock Transfer Corporation.
JonesTrading, B. Riley Securities and/or their respective affiliates have in the past and may in the future provide various investment banking and other financial services for us for which services they may in the future receive customary fees.
The validity of the securities offered by this prospectus, as amended, will be passed upon by Haynes and Boone, LLP, New York, New York. Duane Morris LLP, New York, New York, is counsel for JonesTrading and B. Riley Securities in connection with this offering.
