Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On July 2, 2014, Real Goods Solar, Inc., a Colorado corporation (the "Company"),
entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the "Securities Purchase
Agreement") with unaffiliated investors identified therein (each, an "Investor"
and collectively, the "Investors"), relating to a private placement by the
Company of units consisting of an aggregate of 2,919,351 shares of the Company's
Class A common stock ("Common Stock") and Common Stock Purchase Warrants
("Warrants") to purchase up to 1,313,708 shares of Common Stock, at a purchase
price of $2.40 per unit, or approximately $7.0 million in the aggregate. Each
unit consists of one share of Common Stock and a warrant to purchase 0.45 shares
of Common Stock at an exercise price of $3.19 per share underlying the Warrants.
Eight of the Investors are affiliated with the lead placement agent the Company
retained for the Private Placement (as defined below). The transactions
contemplated by the Securities Purchase Agreement (collectively, the "Private
Placement"), including the issuance of the Common Stock and the Warrants, are
not a "public offering" as defined in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of
1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and meet the requirements to qualify
for exemption under Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act. The
closing of the Private Placement is subject to customary closing conditions and
the Company and each Investor has a right to terminate the Securities Purchase
Agreement if the closing has not occurred within 5 business days after execution
of the Securities Purchase Agreement. There can be no assurance that the Company
will successfully close the Private Placement.
Roth Capital Partners, LLC served as lead placement agent and Maxim Group LLC
served as co-placement agent in connection with the Private Placement.
Upon closing of the Private Placement, the Company will issue the Warrants. The
Warrants will be exercisable, in whole or in part, at an initial exercise price
per share of $3.19 and may be exercised in a cashless exercise. The exercise
price and number of shares of Common Stock issuable under the Warrants are
subject to anti-dilutive adjustments upon the occurrence of certain events, such
as stock splits. The Warrants may be exercised upon the election of the holder
at any time beginning six months after issuance and for a period of five years
thereafter. The Company may not issue any shares of Common Stock upon exercise
of the Warrants if the issuance would exceed the aggregate number of shares of
Common Stock the Company may issue in the Private Placement under applicable
NASDAQ rules unless the Company first obtains shareholder approval to such
issuance. The Warrants contain provisions concerning the assumption of the
Warrants in connection with a Fundamental Transaction (as defined in the
Warrant), and mandatory and voluntary redemption of the Warrants under certain
Upon closing of the Private Placement, the Company will enter into a
Registration Rights Agreement (the "Registration Rights Agreement") with the
Investors, which sets forth the rights of the Investors to have their shares of
Common Stock purchased in the Private Placement and shares of Common Stock
issuable upon exercise of the Warrants registered with the Securities and
Exchange Commission (the "SEC") for public resale under the Securities Act.
Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company is required to file a
registration statement with the SEC (the "Registration Statement") within 35
days after the closing of the Private Placement, registering the total number of
shares of Common Stock purchased in the Private Placement and the shares of
Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants. The Company will be
required to have the Registration Statement declared effective within 90 days
after the date of the closing of the Private Placement. The Company will also be
required to maintain the effectiveness of the Registration Statement until the

Registration Statement or (ii) the date on which all of the registrable
securities covered by the Registration Rights Agreement have been sold or
transferred in a manner that they may be resold without subsequent registration
under the Securities Act.
The Registration Rights Agreement further provides that in the event that
(i) the Company has not filed the Registration Statement or a final prospectus
within the prescribed time period, (ii) the SEC has not declared effective the
Registration Statement within the prescribed time period, (iii) the Registration
Statement ceases to be effective and available to the investors under certain
circumstances, and (iv) the Company fails to timely file all reports required to
be filed by the Company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended,
other than Current Reports on Form 8-K, the Company shall pay to the holders of
registrable securities, on the occurrence of each such event and on each monthly
anniversary thereof until the applicable event is cured, an amount in cash equal
to 1.0% of the aggregate purchase price paid by such Investor multiplied by the
percentage of such Investor's registrable securities that are not covered by the
Registration Statement, up to a maximum of 10.0% of such aggregate purchase
