Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

On July 22, 2014, Biolase, Inc. (the "Company") completed its previously announced private placement of unregistered shares of its common stock, par value $0.001 per share ("Common Stock"), pursuant to the terms of a Securities Purchase Agreement, dated July 18, 2014 (the "Purchase Agreement"), by and among the Company, the Jack W. Schuler Living Trust, Birchview Fund, LLC, Oracle Institutional Partners, L.P., Oracle Ten Fund Master, L.P., Oracle Partners, L.P. and certain directors and executive officers of the Company (collectively, the "Investors"). At the closing of the private placement, the Company sold an aggregate of 6,250,000 shares of Common Stock (the "Shares") to the Investors in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement. The Shares were sold at a price of $1.92 per Share, being the closing price per share of Common Stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market on July 18, 2014, for an aggregate purchase price of $12,000,000. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the private placement to repay all outstanding indebtedness under the Loan and Security Agreement, dated May 24, 2012, between the Company and Comerica Bank, as amended, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.

The Shares were issued and sold in reliance upon exemptions from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), afforded by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and rules promulgated thereunder and corresponding provisions of state securities laws. Each of the Investors is either a "qualified institutional buyer" as defined in Rule 144A(a) under the Securities Act or an "accredited investor" as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act.

The Purchase Agreement contains customary terms regarding, among other things, representations and warranties and indemnification. Additionally, under the Purchase Agreement, the Company grants certain registration rights to the Investors. The Company is obligated to use commercially reasonable efforts to file a registration statement on Form S-3 on or before August 21, 2014 to register the resale of the Shares and to effect the registration no later than 90 days after the filing date. With certain exceptions, the Company is obligated to keep the registration statement effective until all Shares are sold, up to a maximum of two years. The Company will be responsible for all of its fees and expenses incurred in connection with registering the Shares.

The foregoing summary does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

Northland Securities, Inc. ("Northland") served as exclusive placement agent in connection with the private placement. As compensation for its services, the Company paid Northland $250,000 in cash, and the Company will reimburse Northland for its reasonable out-of-pocket expenses not to exceed $25,000.

On July 21, 2014, the Company issued a press release announcing the private placement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
