OXIS INTERNATIONAL, INC.


60,000,000 Class A Units consisting of Common Stock and Warrants,
6,000,000 Class B Units consisting of Series J Convertible Preferred Stock and Warrants,
60,000,000 shares of Common Stock underlying the Series J Convertible Preferred Stock,
60,000,000 shares of Common Stock underlying the warrants in the Class A Units,
60,000,000 shares of Common Stock underlying the warrants in the Class B Units,
9,600,000 Placement Agent Warrants, and
9,600,000 shares of Common Stock underlying the Placement Agent Warrants
 

We are offering 60,000,000 Class A Units (consisting of one share of our common stock and a Series A warrant to purchase one share of our common stock at an exercise price equal to the public offering price of the Class A Units ("Series A warrant")). The shares of common stock and Series A warrants part of a Class A Unit are immediately separable and will be issued separately in this offering.
We are also offering to those purchasers, if any, whose purchase of Class A Units in this offering would otherwise result in the purchaser, together with its affiliates and certain related parties, beneficially owning more than 4.99% of our outstanding common stock immediately following the consummation of this offering, the opportunity, in lieu of purchasing Class A Units, to purchase Class B Units. Each Class B Unit will consist of one share of our Series J Convertible Preferred Stock, or the Series J Preferred, convertible into ten shares of our common stock at the public offering price of the Class A Units times ten, together with the equivalent number of Series A warrants as would have been issued to such purchaser if they had purchased Class A Units based on the public offering price. The Series J Preferred do not generally have any voting rights but are convertible into shares of common stock. The shares of Series J Preferred and Series A warrants are immediately separable and will be issued separately in this offering.
We are also offering the shares of common stock that are issuable from time to time upon conversion of the Series J Preferred and upon exercise of the Series A warrants being offered by this prospectus.
Assuming we sell all 60,000,000 Class A Units (and no Class B Units) being offered in this offering and a public offering price of $0.20, the reported closing price of our common stock on August 18, 2016, we would issue in this offering an aggregate of 60,000,000 shares of our common stock and Series A warrants to purchase 60,000,000 shares of our common stock.
Our common stock is listed on the OTCQB under the symbol OXIS. Our common stock is also quoted on several European based exchanges including Berlin (OXI.BE), Frankfurt (OXI.DE), the Euronext (OXI.NX) and Paris, (OXI.PA). The last reported sale price of our common stock on OTCQB on August 18, 2016 was $0.20 per share. There is no established public trading market for the Series A warrants or Series J Preferred, and we do not expect a market to develop. In addition, the warrants and Series J Preferred are not and will not be listed for trading on any national securities exchange.
 

Investing in our common stock involves risks, which are described in the "Risk Factors" section beginning on page 9 of this prospectus.
 
Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or determined if this prospectus is truthful or complete. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

RISK FACTORS
 
This offering involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described below in addition to the other information contained in this prospectus before deciding whether to invest in shares of our common stock. If any of the following risks actually occur, our business, financial condition or operating results could be harmed. In that case, the trading price of our common stock could decline and you may lose part or all of your investment. In the opinion of management, the risks discussed below represent the material risks known to the company. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business operations and adversely affect the market price of our common stock.

Risks Related to Our Business
 
We have a history of operating losses; we expect to continue to incur losses and we may never be profitable.
 
As of September 30, 2016, we had an accumulated deficit of $121,820,000. We do not expect to generate any product sales or royalty revenues for at least four years. We expect to incur significant additional operating losses in the future as we expand research and development and clinical trial efforts.
 
Our ability to achieve long-term profitability is dependent upon obtaining regulatory approvals for our products and successfully commercializing our products alone or with third parties. However, our operations may not be profitable even if any of our products under development are successfully developed and produced and thereafter commercialized.
 
Even if we succeed in commercializing one or more of our product candidates, we expect to continue to incur substantial research and development and other expenditures to develop and market additional product candidates. The size of our future net losses will depend, in part, on the rate of future growth of our expenses and our ability to generate revenue. Our prior losses and expected future losses have had and will continue to have an adverse effect on our stockholders' equity and working capital.
 
We will have to hire additional executive officers and employees to operate our business. If we are unable to hire qualified personnel, we may not be able to implement our business plan and if we are unable to do so, the value of our common stock could be reduced.
 
We currently have only two full-time employees. The loss of the services of any of our key product or business development employees could delay our product development programs and our research and development efforts. We do not maintain key person life insurance on any of our officers, employees or consultants. In order to develop our business in accordance with our business plan, we will have to hire additional qualified personnel, including in the areas of manufacturing, clinical trials management, regulatory affairs, and business development. We will need to raise sufficient funds to hire the necessary employees and have commenced our search for additional key employees. However, competition for qualified employees among companies in the biotechnology and biopharmaceutical industry is intense, and no assurance can be given that we will be able attract, hire, retain and motivate the highly skilled employees that we need. If we are unable to hire new skilled personnel, including management, our ability to properly develop our products and to implement our business plan will be adversely affected, which will result in a reduction in the value of our shares of common stock.
 
Our intellectual property may be compromised.
 
Part of the value of the Company going forward is vested in the intellectual property that the Company is acquiring the rights to at the present time. There may have been many persons involved in the development of the intellectual property, some of which the Company is not successful in obtaining the rights from. It is possible that in the future, claimants to the property rights may come forward that the Company is not aware of at the present time. It is also possible that the Company may not be successful in protecting its property rights. In either event, it is possible that the Company could lose the value of its intellectual property and if so the business prospects of the Company may suffer.
 
The fact that we have generated operating losses in the past raises doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.
 
The Company has a history of generating operating losses. We have in the past covered any shortfall in operating capital from sales of equity and debt securities, but there can be no assurance that we will continue to be able to do so. The unpredictable economy in the United States and the volatile public equity markets may make it more difficult for us to raise capital as and when we need it, and it is difficult for us to assess the impact this might have on our operations or liquidity. If we cannot raise the funds that we require to continue our business operations, there is a substantial risk that our business will fail.

8

We are subject to extensive regulation, which can be costly, time consuming and can subject us to unanticipated delays; even if we obtain regulatory approval for some of our products, those products may still face regulatory difficulties.
 
All of our potential products, processing and manufacturing activities, are subject to comprehensive regulation by the FDA in the United States and by comparable authorities in other countries. The process of obtaining FDA and other required regulatory approvals, including foreign approvals, is expensive and often takes many years and can vary substantially based upon the type, complexity and novelty of the products involved. In addition, regulatory agencies may lack experience with our technologies and products, which may lengthen the regulatory review process, increase our development costs and delay or prevent their commercialization.
 
 
If we violate regulatory requirements at any stage, whether before or after marketing approval is obtained, we may be fined, forced to remove a product from the market and experience other adverse consequences including delay, which could materially harm our financial results. Additionally, we may not be able to obtain the labeling claims necessary or desirable for the promotion of our products. We may also be required to undertake post-marketing trials. In addition, if we or others identify side effects after any of our adoptive therapies are on the market, or if manufacturing problems occur, regulatory approval may be withdrawn and reformulations, additional clinical trials, changes in labeling of our products, and additional marketing applications may be required.
 
It may take longer to complete our clinical trials than we project, or we may not be able to complete them at all.
 
For budgeting and planning purposes, we have projected the date for the commencement, continuation and completion of our various clinical trials. However, a number of factors, including scheduling conflicts with participating clinicians and clinical institutions, and difficulties in identifying and enrolling patients who meet trial eligibility criteria, may cause significant delays. We may not commence or complete clinical trials involving any of our products as projected or may not conduct them successfully.
 
We expect to rely on medical institutions, academic institutions or clinical research organizations to conduct, supervise or monitor some or all aspects of clinical trials involving our products. We will have less control over the timing and other aspects of these clinical trials than if we conducted them entirely on our own. If we fail to commence or complete, or experience delays in, any of our planned clinical trials, our stock price and our ability to conduct our business as currently planned could be harmed.

We are exposed to the risk of liability claims, for which we may not have adequate insurance.
 
Since we participate in the pharmaceutical industry, we may be subject to liability claims by employees, customers, end users and third parties. We do not currently have product liability insurance. We intend to have proper insurance in place; however, there can be no assurance that any liability insurance we purchase will be adequate to cover claims asserted against us or that we will be able to maintain such insurance in the future. We intend to adopt prudent risk management programs to reduce these risks and potential liabilities; however, we have not taken any steps to create these programs and have no estimate as to the cost or time required to do so and there can be no assurance that such programs, if and when adopted, will fully protect us. We may not be able to put risk management programs in place, or obtain insurance, if we are unable to retain the necessary expertise and/or are unsuccessful in raising necessary capital in the future. Adverse rulings in any legal matters, proceedings and other matters could have a material adverse effect on our business.

Pre-clinical and clinical trials are conducted during the development of potential products and other treatments to determine their safety and efficacy for use by humans. Notwithstanding these efforts, when our treatments are introduced into the marketplace, unanticipated side effects may become evident. Manufacturing, marketing, selling and testing our product candidates under development or to be acquired or licensed, entails a risk of product liability claims. We could be subject to product liability claims in the event that our product candidates, processes, or products under development fail to perform as intended. Even unsuccessful claims could result in the expenditure of funds in litigation and the diversion of management time and resources, and could damage our reputation and impair the marketability of our product candidates and processes. While we plan to maintain liability insurance for product liability claims, we may not be able to obtain or maintain such insurance at a commercially reasonable cost. If a successful claim were made against us, and we don't have insurance or the amount of insurance was inadequate to cover the costs of defending against or paying such a claim or the damages payable by us, we would experience a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

Risks Related to Our Securities
 
Our common shares are penny stock. Trading of our common shares may be restricted by the SEC's penny stock regulations and the FINRA's sales practice requirements, which may limit a shareholder's ability to buy and sell our common shares.
 
Our common shares are deemed to be penny stock. The Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted Rule 15g-9 which generally defines "penny stock" to be any equity security that has a market price (as defined) less than $5.00 per share subject to certain exceptions. Our securities are covered by the penny stock rules, which impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and "accredited investors". The term "accredited investor" refers generally to institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with a net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouse. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document in a form prepared by the SEC which provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer's account. The bid and offer quotations, and the broker-dealer and salesperson compensation information, must be given to the customer orally or in writing prior to effecting the transaction and must be given to the customer in writing before or with the customer's confirmation. In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from these rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for the common shares that are subject to these penny stock rules. Consequently, these penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to trade our securities. We believe that the penny stock rules discourage investor interest in, and limit the marketability of, our common shares.
 
In addition to the "penny stock" rules promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority has adopted rules that require that in recommending an investment to a customer, a broker-dealer must have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer. Prior to recommending speculative low priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer's financial status, tax status, investment objectives and other information. Under interpretations of these rules, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority believes that there is a high probability that speculative low-priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority requirements make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend that their customers buy our common shares, which may limit your ability to buy and sell our shares.
 
Clearing Brokers may Decline to Deposit the Shares in the Subscriber's Account.
 
Clearing brokers may decline to deposit into Subscriber's account a stock certificate for a security that (1) is a penny stock or (2) has stale or incomplete filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In addition to these conditions and limitations, the clearing broker may subject The Company's securities to additional review before accepting such securities for deposit. This review process may (1) take up to two weeks or longer, and (2) may include research into the Company or Subscriber. The characteristics that may trigger additional review include (1) low price of the security or securities under review; (2) large number of shares being deposited with clearing broker into Subscriber's account; (3) the securities in question are non-exchange traded; (4) the stock certificates are recently issued; (5) recent merger activity of the underlying company; and/or (6) change of name of the underlying company issuing these stock certificates. Finally, all of the aforementioned conditions, limitations, and characteristics triggering review may apply to Subscriber's Deposit/Withdrawal At Custodian (DWAC) requests, Automated Customer Account Transfer Account Service (ACATS) requests, and Depository Trust Company (DTC) receipts for deposit requests.
 
We may be unable to attract and retain qualified, experienced, highly skilled personnel, which could adversely affect the implementation of our business plan.
 
Our success depends to a significant degree upon our ability to attract, retain and motivate skilled and qualified personnel. As we become a more mature company in the future, we may find recruiting and retention efforts more challenging. If we do not succeed in attracting, hiring and integrating excellent personnel, or retaining and motivating existing personnel, we may be unable to grow effectively. The loss of any key employee, including members of our senior management team, and our inability to attract highly skilled personnel with sufficient experience in our industries could harm our business.
 
10

Our common stock is quoted on the OTCQB which may have an unfavorable impact on our stock price and liquidity.
 
Our common stock is quoted on the OTCQB, which is a significantly more limited trading market than the New York Stock Exchange or The NASDAQ Stock Market. The quotation of the Company's shares on the OTCQB may result in a less liquid market available for existing and potential stockholders to trade shares of our common stock, could depress the trading price of our common stock and could have a long-term adverse impact on our ability to raise capital in the future.
 
There is limited liquidity on the OTCQB which may result in stock price volatility and inaccurate quote information.
 
When fewer shares of a security are being traded on the OTCQB, volatility of prices may increase and price movement may outpace the ability to deliver accurate quote information. Due to lower trading volumes in shares of our common stock, there may be a lower likelihood of one's orders for shares of our common stock being executed, and current prices may differ significantly from the price one was quoted at the time of one's order entry.
 
Our common stock is thinly traded, so you may be unable to sell at or near asking prices or at all if you need to sell your shares to raise money or otherwise desire to liquidate your shares.
 
Currently, the Company's common stock is quoted in the OTCQB and future trading volume may be limited by the fact that many major institutional investment funds, including mutual funds, as well as individual investors follow a policy of not investing in OTCQB stocks and certain major brokerage firms restrict their brokers from recommending OTCQB stocks because they are considered speculative, volatile and thinly traded. The OTCQB market is an inter-dealer market much less regulated than the major exchanges and our common stock is subject to abuses, volatility and shorting. Thus, there is currently no broadly followed and established trading market for the Company's common stock. An established trading market may never develop or be maintained. Active trading markets generally result in lower price volatility and more efficient execution of buy and sell orders. Absence of an active trading market reduces the liquidity of the shares traded there.
 
Our common stock is subject to price volatility unrelated to our operations.
 
The market price of our common stock could fluctuate substantially due to a variety of factors, including market perception of our ability to achieve our planned growth, quarterly operating results of other companies in the same industry, trading volume in our common stock, changes in general conditions in the economy and the financial markets or other developments affecting the Company's competitors or the Company itself. In addition, the OTCBB is subject to extreme price and volume fluctuations in general. This volatility has had a significant effect on the market price of securities issued by many companies for reasons unrelated to their operating performance and could have the same effect on our common stock.
 
The Company has certain notes which could be converted into common stock, the exercise of which and the conversion of which may dilute the value of shares held by Company shareholders.
 
The Company has warrants outstanding that if exercised would lead to the issuance of 4,677,106 shares of common stock of the company. There are also certain notes on which the Company is not obligated but which are the subject of litigation in which the Company is involved that parties adverse to the Company have asked the Court to order a conversion of such notes into common shares of the Company. In the event the warrants or any of them are exercised, or if the court orders the described notes to be converted, the stock of the existing stockholders will be diluted.

If you are not an institutional investor, you may purchase securities in this offering only if you reside within the states in which we will apply to have the securities registered or are exempt from registration, and, if required, meet any requisite suitability standards.
 
Because our common stock is quoted on the OTCQB Marketplace and not listed on a national securities exchange, this offering must be registered, or be exempt from registration, in any state in which the securities are to be offered or sold. We will apply to register the securities, or will seek to obtain an exemption from registration, only in certain states. If you are not an "institutional investor," you must be a resident of these jurisdictions to purchase our securities in the offering. The definition of an "institutional investor" varies from state to state, but generally includes financial institutions, broker-dealers, banks, insurance companies and other qualified entities. If you are not an institutional investor, you may purchase securities in this offering only if you reside in the jurisdictions where there is an effective registration or an available exemption, and, if required, meet any requisite suitability standards.

USE OF PROCEEDS

Unless we state otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, we intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of securities described in this prospectus for the further development of our products and for general corporate purposes, which may include, among other things, reducing indebtedness, acquiring other businesses (although we currently have no agreement to acquire any business), and making capital expenditures, as well as for working capital.


DETERMINATION OF OFFERING PRICE

The offering price of the units has been arbitrarily determined and bears no relationship to any objective criterion of value. The price does not bear any relationship to our assets, book value, historical earnings or net worth. No valuation or appraisal has been prepared for our business. Our common stock is listed and traded on the OTCQB under the symbol "OXIS." The closing price of our common stock on August 18, 2016 was $0.20 per share.


DILUTION

Our net tangible book value of our common stock as of September 30, 2016 was approximately negative $17,206,000 ($(17,206,000)), or approximately $(0.569) per share of common stock. "Net tangible book value" is total assets minus the sum of liabilities and intangible assets. "Net tangible book value per share" is net tangible book value divided by the total number of shares outstanding.

Assuming that we issue 60,000,000 Units at an assumed offering price of $0.20 per Unit, the closing price of our common stock on the OTCQB on August 18, 2016, and after deducting placement agents fees and estimated offering expenses payable by us, our adjusted net tangible book value after giving effect to this offering as of September 30, 2016 would have been approximately$(6,241,026) or $(0.069) per share of our common stock. This calculation excludes the proceeds, if any, from the exercise of warrants issued in this offering. This amount represents an immediate dilution in net tangible book value of $0.269 per share to new investors purchasing units in this offering and an immediate increase in net tangible book value of $0.500 per share to our existing shareholders.

Because there is no minimum offering amount required as a condition to the closing of this offering, the dilution per share to new investors may be more than that indicated above in the event that the actual number of shares sold, if any, is less than the maximum number of shares of our common stock we are offering. If any shares of common stock are issued upon exercise of outstanding options or warrants, including the warrants issued in this offering, you may experience further dilution.


BUSINESS

Overview
 
OXIS International, Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary Oxis Biotech, Inc, is an immuno-oncology company with a robust technology platform consisting of bispecific and trispecific scFv constructs, full-length antibodies, proprietary drug payloads, proprietary antibody-drug linkers, dual-drug payload antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs), bispecific targeted ADCs, and NK cell and T-cell antibody directed cell-mediated cytotoxic (ADDCs) agents.

OXS-1550

OXS-1550 is a bispecific scFv recombinant fusion protein-drug conjugate composed of the variable regions of the heavy and light chains of anti-CD19 and anti-CD22 antibodies and a modified form of diphtheria toxin as its cytotoxic drug payload. CD19 is a membrane glycoprotein present on the surface of all stages of B-lymphocyte development, and is also expressed on most B-cell mature lymphoma cells and leukemia cells. CD22 is a glycoprotein expressed on B-lineage lymphoid precursors, including precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and often is co-expressed with CD19 on mature B-cell malignancies such as lymphoma.

12

OXS-1550 targets cancer cells expressing the CD19 receptor or CD22 receptor or both receptors. When OXS-1550 binds to cancer cells, the cancer cells internalize OXS-1550, and are killed due to the action of drug's cytotoxic diphtheria toxin payload. OXS-1550 has demonstrated success in a Phase 1 human clinical trial in patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell lymphoma or leukemia.

Oxis began enrolling patients in a Phase 1/Phase 2 trial of OXS-1550 during the second quarter of 2016. The FDA-approved clinical trial is being conducted at the University of Minnesota's Masonic Cancer Center. There are currently 32 patients who have participated in the clinical trial. The six new patients bring to 32 the number of patients who have participated in the clinical trial. All the new patients are given an approved increased dosage of OXS-1550.


 p62/SQSTM1 (Sequestosome-1) Inhibitor Drug Development Program
 
In humans, the p62/SQSTM1 protein is encoded by the SQSTM1 gene. The p62/SQSTM1 protein is a multifunctional protein involved in autophagy, cell signaling, tumorigenesis, and plays an important role at the crossroad between autophagy and cancer. Cell-cell interactions between multiple myeloma cells and bone marrow stromal cells activate signaling pathways that result in enhanced multiple myeloma cell growth, osteoclast formation, and inhibition of osteoblast differentiation.
 
Multiple myeloma remains an incurable malignancy with systematic morbidity and a median survival of 3-5 years. Multiple myeloma is characterized by aberrant proliferation of terminally differentiated plasma cells and impairment in apoptosis capacity. Due to the interactions between myeloma cells and cells of the bone marrow microenvironment, the osteolytic bone disease associated with myeloma is inextricably linked with tumor progression. High incidence of bone metastasis in multiple myeloma patients is frequently associated with severe bone pain and pathological bone fracture. Activated osteoclast levels and suppressed osteoblast levels are thought to play a role in multiple myeloma associated osteolytic bone disease.
 
While a diverse spectrum of novel agents has shown therapeutic potential for the treatment of multiple myeloma including bortezomib, lenalidomide and arsenic trioxide, high relapse rates and drug resistance continue to plague these therapies. Thus, novel targets and new therapeutics for the treatment of multiple myeloma are of critical importance for improved patient outcomes.
 
It has been demonstrated that the ZZ domain of the p62/SQSTM1 protein is responsible for increased multiple myeloma cell growth and associated osteoclast mediated bone disease. Dr. Xiang-Qun Xie and colleagues at ID4 Pharma LLC have developed novel chemical compounds (e.g., OXS-4235) which inhibit osteoclastic bone destruction in multiple myeloma. Oxis Biotech has exclusively licensed rights to OXS-4135 and other compounds for the treatment of multiple myeloma and associated osteolytic bone disease.
 
Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Drug Development Program OXS-2175
 
OXS-2175 is a small molecule therapeutic candidate which has shown promise in early-stage preclinical in vitro and in vivo models of triple-negative breast cancer. Oxis Biotech is investigating OXS-2175 formulated as an infusible therapy, and as part of an ADC infusible therapy for the treatment of triple-negative breast cancer.
 
Therapeutic Antibody-Drug Conjugates Drug Development Program
 
Antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) are a new class of highly potent biopharmaceutical drugs designed as a targeted therapy for the treatment of cancer. By combining the unique targeting capabilities of monoclonal antibodies with the cancer-killing ability of cytotoxic drugs, antibody-drug conjugates allow sensitive discrimination between healthy and diseased tissue.

Markets

B-cell lymphoma
B-cell lymphoma is a type of cancer that forms in B cells (a type of immune system cell). B-cell lymphomas may be either indolent (slow-growing) or aggressive (fast-growing). Most B-cell lymphomas are non-Hodgkin lymphomas. There are many different types of B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas. These include Burkitt lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, and mantle cell lymphoma.  It is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma among adults, with an annual incidence of 7–8 cases per 100,000 people per year.

Triple-Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC)
According to the American Cancer Society there were approximately 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer last year in the USA and 40,290 deaths from breast cancer during the same period. Women represent 99% of all breast cancer patients. Breast cancer is treated by various combinations of surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy. TNBC is a type of breast cancer characterized by breast cancer cells that do not express estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, or large amounts of HER2/neu protein. Approximately 10% - 20% percent of invasive breast cancers are diagnosed as triple-negative breast cancers. TNBC is more likely to affect younger people, African Americans or Hispanics, and those with a BRCA1 gene mutation. TNBC is insensitive to many of the most effective therapies available for the treatment of breast cancer including the HER2-directed therapy Herceptin® (trastuzumab), and endocrine therapies such as tamoxifen or the aromatase inhibitors. The relapse and survival rates of TNBC patients are shorter than for patients with other types of breast cancer.

Multiple Myeloma
Multiple myeloma is a type of cancer that forms in white blood cells, and affects about 26,850 people annually in the USA causing about 11,240 deaths per year. Multiple myeloma causes cancer cells to accumulate in the bone marrow, where they crowd out healthy blood cells. Multiple myeloma is also characterized by destructive lytic bone lesions (rounded, punched-out areas of bone), diffuse osteoporosis, bone pain, and the production of abnormal proteins which accumulate in the urine. Anemia is also present in most multiple myeloma patients at the time of diagnosis and during follow-up. Anemia in multiple myeloma is multifactorial, and is secondary to bone marrow replacement by malignant plasma cells, chronic inflammation, relative erythropoietin deficiency, and vitamin deficiency. Plasma cell leukemia, a condition in which plasma cells comprise greater than 20% of peripheral leukocytes, is typically a terminal stage of multiple myeloma and is associated with short survival.

Manufacturing
We do not currently own or operate manufacturing facilities for the production of clinical or commercial quantities of any of our product candidates. We rely on a small number of third-party manufacturers to produce our compounds, and expect to continue to do so to meet the preclinical and clinical requirements of our potential product candidates as well as for all of our commercial needs. We do not have long-term agreements with any of these third parties. We require in our manufacturing and processing agreements that all third-party contract manufacturers and processors produce active pharmaceutical ingredients, or API, and finished products in accordance with the FDA's current Good Manufacturing Practices, or cGMP, and all other applicable laws and regulations. We maintain confidentiality agreements with potential and existing manufacturers in order to protect our proprietary rights related to our drug candidates.

MultiCell Immunotherapeutics, Inc. (MCIT) License Agreement. Oxis licensed exclusive rights to three antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) that MCIT will prepare for further evaluation by Oxis as prospective therapeutics for the treatment of triple-negative breast cancer, and multiple myeloma and associated osteolytic bone disease. Under the terms of the agreement, MCIT will develop three ADC product candidates which contain Oxis' lead drug candidates OXS-2175 and OXS-4235. Oxis paid MCIT a license fee of $500,000 and will reimburse MCIT up to $1.125 million for its development costs to make the three ADCs exclusively licensed to Oxis. Assuming all clinical development milestones are achieved and manufacturing rights to the three ADCs purchased, Oxis will pay MCIT an additional sum of $22.75 million and pay a royalty of 3% of net yearly worldwide sales upon marketing approval of the ADCs.

MCIT's ADC platform technology is based on unique multivalent, cleavable linkers that allow drugs tethered to the antibody to be released intracellularly or extracellularly upon binding of the antibody to the target cell. Additionally, the MCIT's ADC technology platform allows multiple drugs to be attached per targeting antibody, and to release the drugs in their original form without modification of the drug.

Research and Development
 
Expenditures for research and development activities related to continuing operations were $1,000,000 and $-0- for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, we incurred $725,000 and $475,000 of research and development expenses.
 
Our currently projected expenditures for 2017 include approximately $4-$5 million for research and development. The actual cost of our programs could differ significantly from our current projections if we change our planned development process. In the event that actual costs of our clinical program, or any of our other ongoing research activities, are significantly higher than our current estimates, we may be required to significantly modify our planned level of operations.
 
There is a risk that any drug discovery and development program may not produce revenue because of the risks inherent in drug discovery and development. The successful development of any product candidate is highly uncertain. It is difficult to reasonably estimate or know the nature, timing and costs of the efforts necessary to complete the development of, or the period in which material net cash inflows are expected to commence from any product candidate, due to the numerous risks and uncertainties associated with developing drugs. Any failure to complete any stage of the development of products in a timely manner could have a material adverse effect on our operations, financial position and liquidity.

Competition
The biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries are subject to rapid technological change. Competition from domestic and foreign biotechnology companies, large pharmaceutical companies and other institutions is intense and expected to increase. A number of companies are pursuing the development of pharmaceuticals in our targeted areas. According to the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Research Association, at the end of 2015 there were 168 drugs in development for the treatment of breast cancer, and there were 135 drugs in development for the treatment of lymphomas (blood cell cancers including multiple myeloma).

Government Regulation
United States

Our research and development activities and the future manufacturing and marketing of any products we develop are subject to significant regulation by numerous government authorities in the United States and other countries. In the United States, the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and the Public Health Service Act govern the testing, manufacture, safety, efficacy, labeling, storage, record keeping, approval, advertising and promotion, and distribution of our drug candidates and any products we may develop. In addition, this regulatory framework is subject to changes that may adversely affect approval, delay an application or require additional expenditures.

The steps required before a pharmaceutical compound may be marketed in the United States include: preclinical laboratory and animal testing; submission of an IND to the FDA, which must become effective before clinical trials may commence; conducting adequate and well-controlled clinical trials to establish the safety and efficacy of the drug; submission of a New Drug Application, or NDA, or Biologics License Application, or BLA, to the FDA; satisfactory completion of an FDA pre-approval inspection of the manufacturing facilities to assess compliance with cGMP; and FDA approval of the NDA or BLA prior to any commercial sale or shipment of the drug. In addition to obtaining FDA approval for each product, each drug-manufacturing establishment used must be registered with the FDA and be operated in conformity with cGMP. Drug product manufacturing facilities may also be subject to state and local regulatory requirements.

Preclinical testing includes laboratory evaluation of product chemistry and animal studies to assess the safety and efficacy of the product and its formulation. The results of preclinical testing are submitted to the FDA as part of an IND, and, unless the FDA objects, the IND becomes effective 30 days following its receipt by the FDA.

Clinical trials involve administration of the study drug to healthy volunteers and to patients diagnosed with the condition for which the study drug is being tested under the supervision of qualified clinical investigators. Clinical trials are conducted in accordance with protocols that detail the objectives of the study, the parameters to be used to monitor safety and the efficacy criteria to be evaluated. Each protocol is submitted to the FDA as part of the IND. Each clinical trial is conducted under the auspices of an independent Institutional Review Board, or IRB, in the United States, or Ethics Committee, or EC, outside the United States, for each trial site. The IRB or EC considers, among other matters, ethical factors and the safety of human clinical trial subjects.

Clinical trials are typically conducted in three sequential phases, but the phases may overlap or be repeated. In Phase 1 clinical trials, the drug is initially introduced into healthy human subjects or patients and is tested for adverse effects, dosage tolerance, pharmacokinetics, and clinical pharmacology. Phase 2 clinical trials involve the testing of a limited patient population in order to characterize the actions of the drug in targeted indications, in order to determine drug tolerance and optimal dosage and to identify possible adverse side effects and safety risks. When a compound appears to be effective at a specific dosage and have an acceptable safety profile in Phase 2 clinical trials, Phase 3 clinical trials are undertaken to further evaluate and confirm clinical efficacy and safety within an expanded patient population at multiple clinical trial sites. The FDA reviews the clinical plans and monitors the results of the trials and may discontinue the trials at any time if significant safety issues arise. Similarly, an IRB or EC may suspend or terminate a trial at a study site that is not being conducted in accordance with the IRB or EC's requirements or that has been associated with unexpected serious harm to subjects.

The results of preclinical testing and clinical trials are submitted to the FDA for marketing approval in the form of an NDA or BLA. The submission of an NDA or BLA also requires the payment of user fees, but a waiver of the fees may be obtained under specified circumstances. The testing and approval process is likely to require substantial time, effort and resources and there can be no assurance that any approval will be granted on a timely basis, if at all, or that conditions of any approval, such as warnings, contraindications, or scope of indications will not materially impact the potential market acceptance and profitability of the drug product. Data obtained from clinical trials are not always conclusive, and the FDA may interpret data differently than we interpret the same data. The FDA may refer the application to an advisory committee for review, evaluation and recommendation as to whether the application should be approved and under what conditions. The FDA is not bound by the recommendations of an advisory committee, but it generally follows such recommendations. The approval process is affected by a number of factors, including the severity of the disease, the availability of alternative treatments and the risks and benefits of the product demonstrated in clinical trials.

17

Additional preclinical testing or clinical trials may be requested during the FDA review period and may delay any marketing approval. After FDA approval for the initial indications, further clinical trials may be necessary to gain approval for the use of the product for additional indications. In addition, after approval, certain types of changes to the approved product, such as manufacturing changes, are subject to further FDA review and approval. The FDA mandates that adverse effects be reported to the FDA, and the regulatory agency may also require post-marketing testing to continue monitoring for expected and unexpected adverse effects, which can involve significant expense. Adverse effects observed during the commercial use of a drug product or which arise in the course of post-marketing studies can result in the need for labeling revisions, including additional warnings and contraindications; and if the findings significantly alter the risk/benefit assessment, the potential withdrawal of the drug from the market.

Among the conditions for FDA approval is the requirement that the prospective manufacturer's quality control and manufacturing procedures conform to the FDA's cGMP requirements. Domestic manufacturing facilities are subject to biannual FDA inspections and foreign manufacturing facilities are subject to periodic inspections by the FDA or foreign regulatory authorities. If the FDA finds that a company is not operating in compliance with cGMPs, the continued availability of the product can be interrupted until compliance is achieved; and if the deficiencies are not corrected within a reasonable time frame, the drug could be withdrawn from the market. In addition, the FDA strictly regulates labeling, advertising and promotion of drugs. Failure to conform to requirements relating to licensing, manufacturing and promoting drug products can result in informal or formal sanctions, including warning letters, injunctions, seizures, civil and criminal penalties, adverse publicity and withdrawal of approval.

Foreign

We are also subject to numerous and varying foreign regulatory requirements governing the design and conduct of clinical trials and marketing approval for pharmaceutical products to be marketed outside of the United States. The approval process varies among countries and regions and can involve additional testing; and the time required to obtain approval may differ from that required to obtain FDA approval.

The steps to obtain approval to market a pharmaceutical compound in the European Union include: preclinical laboratory and animal testing; conducting adequate and well-controlled clinical trials to establish safety and efficacy; submission of a Marketing Authorization Application, or MAA; and the issuance of a product marketing license by the European Commission prior to any commercial sale or shipment of drug. In addition to obtaining a product marketing license for each product, each drug manufacturing establishment must be registered with the European Medicines Agency, or EMA, must operate in conformity with European good manufacturing practice and must pass inspections by the European health authorities.

Upon receiving the MAA, the Committee for Human Medicinal Products, or CHMP, a division of the EMA, will review the MAA and may respond with a list of questions or objections. Answers to questions posed by the CHMP may require additional tests to be conducted. Responses to the list of questions or objections must be provided to and deemed sufficient by the CHMP within a defined time frame. Ultimately, a representative from each of the European Member States will vote whether to approve the MAA.

Foreign regulatory approval processes include all of the risks associated with obtaining FDA approval, and approval by the FDA does not ensure approval by the health authorities of any other country.

Employees
As of September 30, 2016, we had two employees, the chief executive officer and chief financial officer of the company.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Overview
Until the end of 2008, we were engaged in the business of developing and selling clinical and research assay products and out-licensing certain therapeutic compounds addressing conditions and diseases associated with oxidative stress. During 2008, we lost our majority-owned subsidiary, BioCheck, Inc., which was engaged in the production of enzyme immunoassay diagnostic kits for clinical laboratories, and in December 2008 we sold substantially all of the assets of our research assay product line to Percipio Biosciences, Inc. Commencing in 2009, our focus shifted from the clinical and research assay business to developing and marketing nutraceutical products in the field of oxidative stress reduction, with a focus on products that include EGT™ as a component. We conducted limited operations, and had limited revenues from these products in 2013 and in 2014. In July 2014, we began pursuing the acquisition of novel therapeutics from various educational and research institutions.
As shown in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the Company has incurred an accumulated deficit of $121,820,000 through September 30, 2016. On a consolidated basis, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $154,000 at September 30, 2016. Because our lack of funds, we will have to raise additional capital in order to fund our selling, general and administrative, and research and development expenses. There are no assurances that we will be able to raise the funds necessary to maintain our operations or to implement our business plan. The consolidated financial statements included in this Annual Report do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event we cannot continue our operations.
Recent Developments
License Agreements
Pursuant to a patent license agreement with the ID4, dated December 31, 2015, we received a non-exclusive, worldwide license to certain intellectual property, including intellectual property related to treating a p62-mediated disease (e.g., multiple myeloma).
On March 10, 2015, Oxis licensed exclusive rights to three antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) that MCIT will prepare for further evaluation by Oxis as prospective therapeutics for the treatment of triple-negative breast cancer, and multiple myeloma and associated osteolytic bone disease. Under the terms of the agreement, MCIT will develop three ADC product candidates which contain Oxis' lead drug candidates OXS-2175 and OXS-4235.
In September 2015, Oxis executed an exclusive worldwide license agreement with Daniel A. Vallera, Ph.D. and his associate (jointly "Dr. Vallera"), to further develop and commercialize DT2219ARL (OXS-1550), a novel therapy for the treatment of various human cancers. Under the terms of the agreement, OXIS receives exclusive rights to conduct research and to develop, make, use, sell, and import DT2219ARL worldwide for the treatment of any disease, state or condition in humans. OXIS shall own all permits, licenses, authorizations, registrations and regulatory approvals required or granted by any governmental authority anywhere in the world that is responsible for the regulation of products such as DT2219ARL, including without limitation the Food and Drug Administration in the United States and the European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products in the European Union. Under the agreement, Dr. Vallera will receive an upfront license fee, royalty fees, and certain milestone payments.
In July 2016, Oxis executed an exclusive worldwide license agreement with the Regents of the University of Minnesota, to further develop and commercialize cancer therapies using Trispecific Killer Engager (TriKE) technology developed by researchers at the university to target NK cells to cancer. Under the terms of the agreement, OXIS receives exclusive rights to conduct research and to develop, make, use, sell, and import TriKe technology worldwide for the treatment of any disease, state or condition in humans. OXIS shall own all permits, licenses, authorizations, registrations and regulatory approvals required or granted by any governmental authority anywhere in the world that is responsible for the regulation of products such as the TriKe technology, including without limitation the Food and Drug Administration in the United States and the European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products in the European Union.

Restructuring Agreements

Effective January 8, 2016, Company entered into agreements to effect the restructuring (the "Restructuring") of certain unregistered debt and equity securities of the Company that will result in an issuance of up to 28,389,193 shares of common stock of the Company (the "Common Stock"). In connection with the Restructuring, the Company entered into a note conversion agreement (the "Conversion Agreement"), a warrant exercise agreement (the "Exercise Agreement") and a preferred stock exchange agreement (the "Exchange Agreement" and, collectively with the Conversion Agreement and the Exercise Agreement, the "Restructuring Agreements"), pursuant to which the Company and certain of the Company's creditors and investors have agreed that (i) certain outstanding debt of the Company (collectively, the "Debt") will be converted into shares of Common Stock; (ii) certain outstanding warrants to purchase shares of capital stock of the Company (collectively, the "Warrants") will be exercised on a cashless basis for shares of Common Stock; and (iii) certain outstanding shares of Series H Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company (the "Series H Preferred Stock") and Series I Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company (the "Series I Preferred Stock" and together with the Series H Preferred Stock, the "Preferred Stock") will be exchanged for shares of Common Stock. The Conversion Agreement, Exercise Agreement and Exchange Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby are described in further detail below.

Under the Conversion Agreement, certain creditors of the Company holding an aggregate of approximately $15,056,000 (including accrued interest and penalties) of outstanding Debt agreed to convert all such outstanding Debt into shares of Common Stock at a conversion price of $1.25 per share upon successful completion by the Company of a $6 million financing. However, since the financing did not occur by March 15, 2016, the Conversion Agreement was terminated.
 
 In addition, under the Exercise Agreement, certain investors together holding warrants to purchase 12,269,240 shares of capital stock of the Company exchanged such warrants and received one share of Common Stock in exchange for each share of capital stock of the Company underlying the warrants.

Finally, under the Exchange Agreement, certain investors together holding 25,000 shares of Series H Preferred Stock and 1,666,667 shares of Series I Preferred Stock have agreed to convert all such shares of Preferred Stock into an aggregate of 4,075,000 shares of Common Stock upon successful completion by the Company of a $6 million financing.
The Restructuring Agreements terminated the warrants and any anti-dilution protection thereunder. In addition, all creditor and investor parties to the Restructuring Agreements provided a waiver of any and all past defaults and breaches under the Warrants and Preferred Stock, in consideration of the shares issued pursuant to the Restructuring Agreements.

Results of Operations

Comparison of the Three Months Ended June 30, 2016 and 2015

License revenue

During the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, we received $-0- and $20,000 of licensing revenue related to a Vitamin D producing line of sun care and skin care products under a license from ESLLC.

Research and Development Expenses

The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses is primarily attributable to an increase in professional fees, license fees investor relations and stock compensation.

Change in value of warrant and derivative liabilities

During the three months ended September 30, 2016, we recorded a gain as a result of a decrease in the fair market value of outstanding warrants and beneficial conversion features of $436,000, compared to a gain of $809,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2015. This reduction is a result of a decrease in the fair market value of outstanding debt and equity securities accounted for as derivative liabilities and the conversion of warrants to common stock.
 
Interest Expense

Interest expense was $1,536,000 and $1,724,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 respectively. The increase is primarily due to an increase in the non-cash amortization of the debt issuance costs associated with the convertible debentures and demand notes payable and expenses related the issuance of additional shares

 Interest Expense

Interest expense was $4,781,000 and $10,012,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 respectively. The decrease is primarily due to a decrease in the non-cash amortization of the debt issuance costs associated with the convertible debentures and demand notes payable, non-cash interest related to the beneficial conversion feature of new debt and expenses related the issuance of additional shares

Critical Accounting Policies
We consider the following accounting policies to be critical given they involve estimates and judgments made by management and are important for our investors' understanding of our operating results and financial condition.
Basis of Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements contained in this report include the accounts of OXIS International, Inc. and its subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.
Revenue Recognition
Product Revenue
The Company manufactures, or has manufactured on a contract basis, fine chemicals and nutraceutical products, which are its primary products to be sold to customers. Revenue from the sale of its products, including shipping fees, will be recognized when title to the products is transferred to the customer which usually occurs upon shipment or delivery, depending upon the terms of the sales order and when collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue from sales to distributors of its products will be recognized, net of allowances, upon delivery of product to the distributors. According to the terms of individual distributor contracts, a distributor may return product up to a maximum amount and under certain conditions contained in its contract. Allowances are calculated based upon historical data, current economic conditions and the underlying contractual terms.
 
24

Long-Lived Assets
Our long-lived assets include property, plant and equipment, capitalized costs of filing patent applications and goodwill and other assets. We evaluate our long-lived assets for impairment in accordance with SFAS No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets" whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable. Estimates of future cash flows and timing of events for evaluating long-lived assets for impairment are based upon management's judgment. If any of our intangible or long-lived assets are considered to be impaired, the amount of impairment to be recognized is the excess of the carrying amount of the assets over its fair value.
Applicable long-lived assets are amortized or depreciated over the shorter of their estimated useful lives, the estimated period that the assets will generate revenue, or the statutory or contractual term in the case of patents. Estimates of useful lives and periods of expected revenue generation are reviewed periodically for appropriateness and are based upon management's judgment. Goodwill and other assets are not amortized.
Certain Expenses and Liabilities
On an ongoing basis, management evaluates its estimates related to certain expenses and accrued liabilities. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ materially from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
Derivative Financial Instruments
During the normal course of business, from time to time, we issue warrants as part of a debt or equity financing. We do not enter into any derivative contracts for speculative purposes. We recognize all derivatives as assets or liabilities measured at fair value with changes in fair value of derivatives reflected as current period income or loss unless the derivatives qualify for hedge accounting and are accounted for as such. During the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, we issued warrants to purchase 3,475,111 and 376,000 shares of common stock, respectively, in connection with equity transactions. In accordance with ASC Topic 815-40, "Derivatives and Hedging — Contracts in Entity's Own Stock" ("ASC 815-40"), the value of these warrants is required to be recorded as a liability, as the holders have an option to put the warrants back to us in certain events, as defined.

Inflation
We believe that inflation has not had a material adverse impact on our business or operating results during the periods presented.
Off-balance Sheet Arrangements
We have no off-balance sheet arrangements as of September 30, 2016.

DESCRIPTION OF OUR CAPITAL STOCK

General

As of the date of this Prospectus, our authorized capital stock consists of 150,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, and 15,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share. As of November 10, 2016, there were 30,241,305 shares of our common stock outstanding, and 1,787,897 shares of our preferred stock outstanding.

Common Stock

Holders of our common stock are entitled to one vote for each share of common stock held of record for the election of directors and on all matters submitted to a vote of stockholders. Holders of our common stock are entitled to receive dividends ratably, if any, as may be declared by our board of directors out of legally available funds, subject to any preferential dividend rights of any preferred stock then outstanding. In the event of our dissolution, liquidation or winding up, holders of our common stock are entitled to share ratably in our net assets legally available after the payment of all of our debts and other liabilities, subject to the liquidation preferences of any preferred stock then outstanding. Holders of our common stock have no preemptive, subscription, redemption or conversion rights. The rights, preferences and privileges of holders of common stock are subject to, and may be adversely affected by, the rights of the holders of shares of any series of preferred stock that we may designate and issue in the future. All outstanding shares of our common stock are fully paid and nonassessable. Except as described below in "Anti-Takeover Effects of Delaware Law Provisions of Our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation and Our Amended and Restated By-Laws," a majority vote of common stockholders is generally required to take action under our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated by-laws.

Preferred Stock

Our board of directors is authorized, without action by the stockholders, to designate and issue up to 15,000,000 shares of preferred stock in one or more series. In the past the board has designated series lettered A through I and issued shares in those series. As of the date of this prospectus, only preferred shares in the series designated C, H, and I have shares issued and outstanding. In connection with this Offering, the board has recently designated series J which is being offered in the Offering as part of the B Units. Our board of directors can fix or alter the rights, preferences and privileges of the shares of each series and any of its qualifications, limitations or restrictions, including dividend rights, conversion rights, voting rights, terms of redemption, liquidation preferences and the number of shares constituting a class or series. The issuance of preferred stock could, under certain circumstances, result in one or more of the following adverse effects:
 
 
 
decreasing the market price of our common stock;
 
 
 
restricting dividends on our common stock;
 
 
 
diluting the voting power of our common stock;
 
 
 
impairing the liquidation rights of our common stock; or
 
 
 
delaying or preventing a change in control of us without further action by our stockholders.

Our board of directors will make any determination to issue such shares based on its judgment as to our best interests and the best interests of our stockholders. We have no current plans to issue any shares of preferred stock.

30

Series C

The 96,230 shares of Series C preferred stock are convertible into 111 shares of the Company's common stock at the option of the holders at any time. The conversion ratio is based on the average closing bid price of the common stock for the fifteen consecutive trading days ending on the date immediately preceding the date notice of conversion is given, but cannot be less than .20 or more than .2889 common shares for each Series C preferred share. The conversion ratio may be adjusted under certain circumstances such as stock splits or stock dividends. The Company has the right to automatically convert the Series C preferred stock into common stock if the Company lists its shares of common stock on the Nasdaq National Market and the average closing bid price of the Company's common stock on the Nasdaq National Market for 15 consecutive trading days exceeds $3,000.00. Each share of Series C preferred stock is entitled to the number of votes equal to .26 divided by the average closing bid price of the Company's common stock during the fifteen consecutive trading days immediately prior to the date such shares of Series C preferred stock were purchased. In the event of liquidation, the holders of the Series C preferred stock shall participate on an equal basis with the holders of the common stock (as if the Series C preferred stock had converted into common stock) in any distribution of any of the assets or surplus funds of the Company. The holders of Series C preferred stock are entitled to noncumulative dividends if and when declared by the Company's board of directors. No dividends to Series C preferred stockholders were issued or unpaid through June 30, 2016.

Series H

Effective February 10, 2010, the Company issued 25,000 shares of its new Series H Convertible Preferred Stock (the "Series H Preferred") in exchange for the 25,000 shares of Series G Stock

The Certificate of Designation of the Series H Preferred is based on, and substantially similar to the form and substance of the Certificate of Designation of the Series G Preferred. Some of the corrections, changes and differences between the Certificate of Designation of the Series G Preferred and the Certificate of Designation of the Series H Preferred include the following:

 
·
As previously disclosed, the holder of the Series H Preferred is entitled to vote with the common stock, and is entitled to a number of votes equal to (i) the number of shares of common stock it can convert into (without any restrictions or limitations on such conversion), (ii) multiplied by 100.
 
·
The holder of the Series H Preferred cannot convert such preferred stock into shares of common stock if the holder and its affiliates after such conversion would own more than 9.9% of the Company's then issued and outstanding shares of common stock.
 
·
The Series G Preferred contained a limitation that the holder of the Series G Preferred could not convert such preferred shares into more than 19.999% of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock without the approval of the stockholders if the rules of the principal market on which the common stock is traded would prohibit such a conversion. Since the rules of the Company's principal market did not require such a limitation, that provision has been deleted.


31

Series I

The holder of the Series I Preferred Stock is entitled to receive, out of funds legally available, dividends in cash at the annual rate of 8.0% of the Preference Amount ($0.15), when, as, and if declared by the Board. No dividends or other distributions shall be made with respect to any shares of junior stock until dividends in the same amount per share on the Series I Preferred Stock shall have been declared and paid or set apart during that fiscal year. Dividends on the Series I Preferred Stock are not cumulative and no right accrues to the Series I Preferred Stock by reason of the fact that the Company may fail to declare or pay dividends on the Series I Preferred Stock in the amount of the Dividend Rate per share or in any amount in any previous fiscal year of the Company, whether or not the earnings of the Company in that previous fiscal year were sufficient to pay such dividends in whole or in part.

Each share of Series I Preferred Stock entitles the holder thereof to such number of votes per share as shall equal the number of shares of Common Stock (rounded to the nearest whole number) into which such share of Series I Preferred Stock is then convertible.

Upon any liquidation of the Company, subject to the rights of any series of Preferred Stock that may from time to time come into existence, before any distribution or payment shall be made to the holders of any Junior Stock, the holders of the shares of Series I Preferred Stock then outstanding are entitled to receive and be paid out of the assets of the Company legally available for distribution to its stockholders liquidating distributions in cash or property at its fair market value as determined by the Board in the amount of $0.15 per share (as adjusted for any stock dividends, combinations or splits with respect to such shares).

Shares of Series I Preferred Stock may, at the option of the holder thereof, be converted at any time or from time to time into fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock. The number of shares of Common Stock which a holder of shares of Series I Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receive upon conversion of such shares shall be the product obtained by multiplying the Conversion Rate by the number of shares of Series I Preferred Stock being converted. Initially, the Series I Preferred Stock is convertible into 6,667 shares of common stock.

In the event that the per-share Market Price of the Common Stock over a period of 20 consecutive trading days is equal to at least 130% of the initial conversion price (130% of $0.15), all outstanding shares of Series I Preferred Stock shall be converted automatically into the number of shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Series I Preferred Stock are then convertible without any further action by the holders of such shares and whether or not the certificates representing such shares of Series I Preferred Stock are surrendered to the Company or its transfer agent.

As of the date of this prospectus, there are 1,666,667 shares of Series I Preferred Stock issued and outstanding.

As of September 30, 2016, Oxis has warrants issued and outstanding for the purchase of 3,721,768 shares of its common stock.

Warrants to Purchase Common Stock

The material terms of the Series A warrants to be issued are summarized below. This summary does not purport to be complete in all respects. This description is subject to and qualified entirely by the terms of the form of warrant filed as an exhibit to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part.

The Series A warrants to be issued with each Unit will have an exercise price of $ per share (equal to the public offering price of the Class A Units) and will be exercisable from their date of issuance and at any time up to the date that is five years after their original date of issuance.
 
The Series A warrants may not be exercised by the holder to the extent that the holder, together with its affiliates, would beneficially own, after such exercise more than 4.99% of the shares of common stock then outstanding (subject to the right of the holder to increase or decrease such beneficial ownership limitation upon notice to us, provided that such limitation cannot exceed 9.99%) and provided that any increase in the beneficial ownership limitation shall not be effective until 61 days after such notice is delivered.

The warrants are exercisable for cash or, solely in the absence of an effective registration statement or prospectus, by cashless exercise.

Prior to the exercise of any warrants to purchase common stock, holders of the warrants will not have any of the rights of holders of the common stock purchasable upon exercise, including voting rights, however, the holders of the warrants will have certain rights to participate in distributions or dividends paid on our common stock to the extent set forth in the warrants.
In addition, the warrants provide that if, at any time while such warrants are outstanding, we (1) consolidate or merge with or into another corporation, (2) sell all or substantially all of our assets or (3) are subject to or complete a tender or exchange offer pursuant to which holders of our common stock are permitted to tender or exchange their shares for other securities, cash or property and has been accepted by the holders of 50% or more of the outstanding Common Stock, (4) effect any reclassification, reorganization or recapitalization of our common stock or any compulsory share exchange pursuant to which our common stock is converted into or exchanged for other securities, cash or property, or (5) engage in one or more transactions with another party that results in that party acquiring more than 50% of our outstanding shares of common stock (each, a "Fundamental Transaction"), then the holder of such warrants shall have the right thereafter to receive, upon exercise of the warrant, the same amount and kind of securities, cash or property as it would have been entitled to receive upon the occurrence of such Fundamental Transaction if it had been, immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction, the holder of the number of warrant shares then issuable upon exercise of the warrant, and any additional consideration payable as part of the Fundamental Transaction. Any successor to us or surviving entity shall assume the obligations under the warrant.
The provisions of the Series A warrants may be amended if we obtain the written consent of holders representing not less than a majority of shares of our common stock then exercisable under the Series A warrants collectively (in which case such amendments shall be binding on all holders of the warrants). However, the number of shares of our common stock exercisable, the exercise price or the exercise period may not be amended without the written consent of the holder of each such warrant.

1. The Company and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
OXIS International, Inc. (collectively, “OXIS” or the “Company”) is engaged in discovering, developing and commercializing novel therapeutics from our proprietary product platform in a broad range of disease areas. Currently, OXIS develops innovative drugs focused on the treatment of cancer. OXIS' lead drug candidate, OXS-2175, is a small molecule therapeutic candidate targeting the treatment of triple-negative breast cancer. In in vitro and in vivo models of TNBC, OXS-2175 demonstrated the ability to inhibit metastasis. OXIS' lead drug candidate, OXS-4235, also a small molecule therapeutic candidate, targets the treatment of multiple myeloma and associated osteolytic lesions. In in vitro and in vivo models of multiple myeloma, OXS-4235 demonstrated the ability to kill multiple myeloma cells, and decrease osteolytic lesions in bone. OXIS' lead drug candidate, OXS-1550, is a bispecific scFv recombinant fusion protein-drug conjugate composed of the variable regions of the heavy and light chains of anti-CD19 and anti-CD22 antibodies and a modified form of diphtheria toxin as its cytotoxic drug payload. OXS-1550 has demonstrated success in early human clinical trials in patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell lymphoma or leukemia.
 
In 1965, the corporate predecessor of OXIS, Diagnostic Data, Inc. was incorporated in the State of California. Diagnostic Data changed its incorporation to the State of Delaware in 1972; and changed its name to DDI Pharmaceuticals, Inc. in 1985. In 1994, DDI Pharmaceuticals merged with International BioClinical, Inc. and Bioxytech S.A. and changed its name to OXIS International, Inc.
 
Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“U.S. GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and disclosures required by U.S. GAAP for complete consolidated financial statements have been condensed or omitted herein. The interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial information presented herein reflects all normal adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. The Company is responsible for the unaudited interim consolidated financial statements included in this report. The results of operations of any interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year.
 
Going Concern
 
As shown in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the Company has incurred an accumulated deficit of $121,820,000 through September 30, 2016. On a consolidated basis, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $154,000 at September 30, 2016. The Company's plan is to raise additional capital until such time that the Company generates sufficient revenues to cover its cash flow needs and/or it achieves profitability. However, the Company cannot assure that it will accomplish this task and there are many factors that may prevent the Company from reaching its goal of profitability.
 
The current rate of cash usage raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern, absent any sources of significant cash flows. In an effort to mitigate this near-term concern the Company intends to seek additional equity or debt financing to obtain sufficient funds to sustain operations. However, the Company cannot provide assurance that it will successfully obtain equity or debt or other financing, if any, sufficient to finance its goals or that the Company will generate future product related revenues. The Company’s financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event that the Company cannot continue in existence.

Basis of Consolidation and Comprehensive Income
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of OXIS International, Inc. and its subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. The Company's financial statements are prepared using the accrual method of accounting.
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents.
 
Concentrations of Credit Risk
 
The Company's cash and cash equivalents, marketable securities and accounts receivable are monitored for exposure to concentrations of credit risk. The Company maintains substantially all of its cash balances in a limited number of financial institutions. The balances are each insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to $250,000. The Company does not have balances in excess of this limit at September 30, 2016.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable, inventory, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair value because of the short-term nature of these instruments. The fair value of debt is based upon current interest rates for debt instruments with comparable maturities and characteristics and approximates the carrying amount.
 
Stock Based Compensation to Other than Employees
 
The Company accounts for equity instruments issued in exchange for the receipt of goods or services from other than employees in accordance with ASC 718. Costs are measured at the estimated fair market value of the consideration received or the estimated fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably determinable. The value of equity instruments issued for consideration other than employee services is determined on the earlier of a performance commitment or completion of performance by the provider of goods or services. In the case of equity instruments issued to consultants, the fair value of the equity instrument is recognized over the term of the consulting agreement.
 
Impairment of Long Lived Assets
 
The Company's long-lived assets currently consist of capitalized patents. The Company evaluates its long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable. If any of the Company's long-lived assets are considered to be impaired, the amount of impairment to be recognized is equal to the excess of the carrying amount of the assets over the fair value of the assets.
 
Income Taxes
 
The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability approach, whereby deferred income tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax effects, based on current enacted tax laws, of temporary differences between financial and tax reporting for current and prior periods. Deferred tax assets are reduced, if necessary, by a valuation allowance if the corresponding future tax benefits may not be realized.

Net Income (Loss) per Share
 
Basic net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net loss for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net loss for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, plus the potential dilutive effect of common shares issuable upon exercise or conversion of outstanding stock options and warrants during the period. The weighted average number of potentially dilutive common shares excluded from the calculation of net income (loss) per share totaled in 38,410,084 and 2,039,480 as of September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
 
Patents
 
Acquired patents are capitalized at their acquisition cost or fair value. The legal costs, patent registration fees and models and drawings required for filing patent applications are capitalized if they relate to commercially viable technologies. Commercially viable technologies are those technologies that are projected to generate future positive cash flows in the near term. Legal costs associated with patent applications that are not determined to be commercially viable are expensed as incurred. All research and development costs incurred in developing the patentable idea are expensed as incurred. Legal fees from the costs incurred in successful defense to the extent of an evident increase in the value of the patents are capitalized.
 
 
Capitalized cost for pending patents are amortized on a straight-line basis over the remaining twenty year legal life of each patent after the costs have been incurred. Once each patent is issued, capitalized costs are amortized on a straight-line basis over the shorter of the patent's remaining statutory life, estimated economic life or ten years.
 
Fixed Assets
 
Fixed assets are stated at cost. Depreciation is computed on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which are 3 to 10 years for machinery and equipment and the shorter of the lease term or estimated economic life for leasehold improvements.
 
Fair Value
 
The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for receivables and current liabilities each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of fair value because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest. The three levels are defined as follows:
 
Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets. The Company’s Level 1 assets include cash equivalents, primarily institutional money market funds, whose carrying value represents fair value because of their short-term maturities of the investments held by these funds.
 
Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument. The Company’s Level 2 liabilities consist of liabilities arising from the issuance of convertible securities and in accordance with ASC 815-40: a warrant liability for detachable warrants, as well as an accrued derivative liability for the beneficial conversion feature. These liabilities are remeasured each reporting period. Fair value is determined using the Black-Scholes valuation model based on observable market inputs, such as share price data and a discount rate consistent with that of a government-issued security of a similar maturity.
 
Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

Research and development costs are expensed as incurred and reported as research and development expense. Research and development costs totaling $725,000 and $475,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
License Revenue
 
License arrangements may consist of non-refundable upfront license fees, exclusive licensed rights to patented or patent pending technology, and various performance or sales milestones and future product royalty payments. Some of these arrangements are multiple element arrangements.
 
Non-refundable, up-front fees that are not contingent on any future performance by us, and require no consequential continuing involvement on our part, are recognized as revenue when the license term commences and the licensed data, technology and/or compound is delivered. We defer recognition of non-refundable upfront fees if we have continuing performance obligations without which the technology, right, product or service conveyed in conjunction with the non-refundable fee has no utility to the licensee that is separate and independent of our performance under the other elements of the arrangement. In addition, if we have continuing involvement through research and development services that are required because our know-how and expertise related to the technology is proprietary to us, or can only be performed by us, then such up-front fees are deferred and recognized over the period of continuing involvement.
 
Payments related to substantive, performance-based milestones in a research and development arrangement are recognized as revenue upon the achievement of the milestones as specified in the underlying agreements when they represent the culmination of the earnings process.
 
Use of Estimates
 
The financial statements and notes are representations of the Company's management, which is responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements. The preparation of financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities revenues and expenses and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

2. Debt
 
Convertible debentures
 
On October 25, 2006, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (“2006 Purchase Agreement”) with four accredited investors (the “2006 Purchasers”). In conjunction with the signing of the 2006 Purchase Agreement, the Company issued secured convertible debentures (“2006 Debentures”) and Series A, B, C, D, and E common stock warrants (“2006 Warrants”) to the 2006 Purchasers, and the parties also entered into a security agreement (the “2006 Security Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company agreed to grant the 2006 Purchasers, pari passu, a security interest in substantially all of the Company’s assets.
 
Pursuant to the terms of the 2006 Purchase Agreement, the Company issued the 2006 Debentures in an aggregate principal amount of $1,694,250 to the 2006 Purchasers. The 2006 Debentures are subject to an original issue discount of 20.318% resulting in proceeds to the Company of $1,350,000 from the transaction. The 2006 Debentures were due on October 25, 2008. The 2006 Debentures are convertible, at the option of the 2006 Purchasers, at any time prior to payment in full, into shares of common stock of the Company. As a result of the full ratchet anti-dilution provision the current conversion price is $2.50 per share (the “2006 Conversion Price”). Beginning on the first of the month beginning February 1, 2007, the Company was required to amortize the 2006 Debentures in equal installments on a monthly basis resulting in a complete repayment by the maturity date (the “Monthly Redemption Amounts”). The Monthly Redemption Amounts could have been paid in cash or in shares, subject to certain restrictions. If the Company chose to make any Monthly Redemption Amount payment in shares of common stock, the price per share would have been the lesser of the Conversion Price then in effect and 85% of the weighted average price for the 10-trading days prior to the due date of the Monthly Redemption Amount. The Company did not make any of the required monthly redemption payments.
 
Pursuant to the provisions of the 2006 Debentures, such non-payment was an event of default and penalty interest has accrued on the unpaid redemption balance at an interest rate equal to the lower of 18% per annum and the maximum rate permitted by applicable law. In addition, each of the 2006 Purchasers has the right to accelerate the cash repayment of at least 130% of the outstanding principal amount of the 2006 Debenture (plus accrued but unpaid liquidated damages and interest) and to sell substantially all of the Company’s assets pursuant to the provisions of the 2006 Security Agreement to satisfy any such unpaid balance. On June 6, 2008, the Company received notification from Bristol Investment Fund, Ltd (“Bristol”), that the collateral held under the 2006 Security Agreement would be sold to the highest qualified bidder on Thursday, June 19, 2008. On June 19, 2008, the Company received a Notice of Disposition of Collateral from Bristol in which Bristol notified the Company that Bristol, acting as the agent for itself and the three other 2006 Purchasers, purchased certain assets held as collateral under the 2006 Security Agreement. Bristol purchased 111,025 shares of common stock of BioCheck, Inc., the Company’s majority owned subsidiary, on a credit bid of $50,000, and Bristol also purchased 1,000 shares of the capital stock of OXIS Therapeutics, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of OXIS, for a credit bid of $10,000. In December 2005, OXIS purchased the 111,025 shares of common stock of BioCheck, Inc. for $3,060,000. After crediting the aggregate amount of $60,000 to the aggregate amount due under the 2006 Debentures, plus fees and charges due through June 19, 2008, Bristol notified the Company that the Company remains obligated to the 2006 Purchasers in a deficiency in an aggregate amount of $2,688,000 as of June 19, 2008. As a result of the disposition of the collateral, the Company recorded a net loss aggregating $2,978,000.
 
Under the 2006 Purchase Agreement, the 2006 Purchasers also have a right of first refusal to participate in up to 100% of any future financing undertaken by the Company until the 2006 Debentures are no longer outstanding. In addition, the Company is also prohibited from effecting any subsequent financing involving a variable rate transaction until such time as no 2006 Purchaser holds any of the 2006 Debentures. Furthermore, so long as any 2006 Purchaser holds any of the securities issued under the 2006 Purchase Agreement, if the Company issues or sells any common stock or instruments convertible into common stock which a 2006 Purchaser reasonably believes is on terms more favorable to such investors than the terms pursuant to the 2006 Debentures or 2006 Warrants, the Company is obligated to permit such 2006 Purchaser the benefits of such better terms.

Of the 2006 Warrants issued by the Company to the 2006 Purchasers, only the Series A Warrants remain outstanding. The Series A Warrants, which now expire in July 2019, permit the holders to purchase 9,681 shares of common stock at an original exercise price of $87.50 per share. Such exercise price is adjustable pursuant to a full ratchet anti-dilution provision and upon the occurrence of a stock split or a related event.
 
During 2009, Bristol converted $177,900 of the principal amount of 2006 Debentures for 71,160 shares of the Company’s common stock. During 2010, Bristol converted an additional $401,000 of the principal amount of 2006 Debentures for 160,400 shares of the Company’s common stock. During 2011, an additional $605,000 of the principal amount of 2006 Debentures was converted into 242,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. During 2012, an additional $369,625 of the principal amount of 2006 Debentures was converted into 350,619 shares of the Company’s common stock.
 
The 2006 Debentures do not meet the definition of a “conventional convertible debt instrument” since they are not convertible into a fixed number of shares. The Monthly Redemption Amounts can be paid with common stock at a conversion price that is a percentage of the market price; therefore the number of shares that could be required to be delivered upon “net-share settlement” is essentially indeterminate. Therefore, the 2006 Debentures are considered “non-conventional,” which means that the conversion feature must be bifurcated from the debt and shown as a separate derivative liability. This beneficial conversion liability has been calculated to be $690,000 on October 25, 2006. In addition, since the 2006 Debentures are convertible into an indeterminate number of shares of common stock, it is assumed that the Company could never have enough authorized and unissued shares to settle the conversion of the 2006 Warrants issues in this transaction into common stock. Therefore, the 2006 Warrants have a fair value of $2,334,000 at October 25, 2006. The value of the 2006 Warrant was calculated using the Black-Scholes model using the following assumptions: Discount rate of 4.5%, volatility of 158% and expected term of 1 to 6 years. The fair value of the beneficial conversion feature and the 2006 Warrant liability will be adjusted to fair value on each balance sheet date with the change being shown as a component of net loss. The fair value of the beneficial conversion feature and the 2006 Warrants at the inception of the 2006 Debentures were $690,000 and $2,334,000, respectively. The first $1,350,000 of these discounts was amortized over the term of the 2006 Debenture and the excess of $1,674,000 was shown as financing costs in statement of operations.
 
The Company and Bristol entered into a Forbearance Agreement on December 3, 2015, pursuant to which Bristol agreed to refrain and forbear from exercising certain rights and remedies with respect the 2006 Debentures for three months. In exchange for the Forbearance Agreement, the Company issued an allonge in the amount of $250,000 increasing the principal amount if the 2006 Debentures.
 
On October 1, 2009, the Company entered into a financing arrangement with several accredited investors (the “2009 Investors”), pursuant to which it sold various securities in consideration of a maximum aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000 (the “2009 Financing”). In connection with the 2009 Financing, the Company issued the following securities to the 2009 Investors:
 
0% Convertible Debentures in the principal amount of $2,000,000 due 24 months from the date of issuance (the “ 2009 Debentures”), convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a per share conversion price equal to $12.50 per share;
 
Series A warrant to purchase such number of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to 50% of the principal amount invested by each 2009 Investor (the “2009 Class A Warrants” ) resulting in the issuance of Class A Warrants to purchase 80,000 shares of common stock of the Company.
 
Series B warrant to purchase such number of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to 50% of the principal amount invested by each 2009 Investor (the “2009 Class B Warrants”) resulting in the issuance of Class B Warrants to purchase 80,000 shares of common stock of the Company.
 
The Class A Warrants and Class B Warrants (collectively, the “ 2009 Warrants”) are exercisable for up to five years from the date of issue at a per share exercise price equal to $15.625 and $18.75 for the Class A Warrants and the Class B Warrants, respectively, on a cash or cashless basis.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
To The Board of Directors and Stockholders of
Oxis International, Inc.
 
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Oxis International, Inc. (the "Company") and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2015 and 2014 and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in stockholders' deficit and cash flows for the two years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.
 
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Oxis International, Inc. and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2015 and 2014 and the consolidated results of their operations and their consolidated cash flows for the two years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company has incurred significant recurring losses. The realization of a major portion of its assets is dependent upon its ability to meet its future financing needs and the success of its future operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from this uncertainty.

1. The Company and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

OXIS International, Inc. (collectively, "OXIS" or the "Company") is engaged in discovering, developing and commercializing novel therapeutics from our proprietary product platform in a broad range of disease areas. Currently, OXIS develops innovative drugs focused on the treatment of cancer. OXIS' lead drug candidate, OXS-2175, is a small molecule therapeutic candidate targeting the treatment of triple-negative breast cancer. In in vitro and in vivo models of TNBC, OXS-2175 demonstrated the ability to inhibit metastasis. OXIS' lead drug candidate, OXS-4235, also a small molecule therapeutic candidate, targets the treatment of multiple myeloma and associated osteolytic lesions. In in vitro and in vivo models of multiple myeloma, OXS-4235 demonstrated the ability to kill multiple myeloma cells, and decrease osteolytic lesions in bone. OXIS' lead drug candidate, OXS-1550, is a bispecific scFv recombinant fusion protein-drug conjugate composed of the variable regions of the heavy and light chains of anti-CD19 and anti-CD22 antibodies and a modified form of diphtheria toxin as its cytotoxic drug payload. OXS-1550 has demonstrated success in early human clinical trials in patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell lymphoma or leukemia.

In 1965, the corporate predecessor of OXIS, Diagnostic Data, Inc. was incorporated in the State of California. Diagnostic Data changed its incorporation to the State of Delaware in 1972; and changed its name to DDI Pharmaceuticals, Inc. in 1985. In 1994, DDI Pharmaceuticals merged with International BioClinical, Inc. and Bioxytech S.A. and changed its name to OXIS International, Inc.

Going Concern

As shown in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the Company has incurred an accumulated deficit of $145,636,000 through December 31, 2015. On a consolidated basis, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $47,000 at December 31, 2015. The Company's plan is to raise additional capital until such time that the Company generates sufficient revenues to cover its cash flow needs and/or it achieves profitability. However, the Company cannot assure that it will accomplish this task and there are many factors that may prevent the Company from reaching its goal of profitability.

The current rate of cash usage raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern, absent any sources of significant cash flows. In an effort to mitigate this near-term concern the Company intends to seek additional equity or debt financing to obtain sufficient funds to sustain operations. The Company plans to increase revenues by introducing new nutraceutical products primarily based on its ergothioneine assets. However, the Company cannot provide assurance that it will successfully obtain equity or debt or other financing, if any, sufficient to finance its goals or that the Company will generate future product related revenues. The Company's financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event that the Company cannot continue in existence.

Accounts receivable

The Company carries its accounts receivable at cost less an allowance for doubtful accounts. On a periodic basis, the Company evaluates its accounts receivable and establishes an allowance for doubtful accounts, based on a history of past write-offs and collections and current credit conditions.

Advertising and promotional fees

Advertising expenses consist primarily of costs incurred in the design, development, and printing of Company literature and marketing materials. The Company expenses all advertising expenditures as incurred. There were no advertising expenses for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Basis of Consolidation and Comprehensive Income

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of OXIS International, Inc. and its subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. The Company's financial statements are prepared using the accrual method of accounting.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Concentrations of Credit Risk

The Company's cash and cash equivalents, marketable securities and accounts receivable are monitored for exposure to concentrations of credit risk. The Company maintains substantially all of its cash balances in a limited number of financial institutions. The balances are each insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to $250,000. The Company does not have balances in excess of this limit at December 31, 2015

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable, inventory, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair value because of the short-term nature of these instruments. The fair value of debt is based upon current interest rates for debt instruments with comparable maturities and characteristics and approximates the carrying amount.

Stock Based Compensation to Employees

The Company accounts for its stock-based compensation for employees in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 718. The Company recognizes in the statement of operations the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity-based compensation issued to employees and non-employees over the related vesting period.

The Company granted stock options to purchase 52,000 and 321,941 shares of the Company's common stock to employees and directors during the year ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The fair values of employee stock options are estimated for the calculation of the pro forma adjustments at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted-average assumptions during 2015: expected volatility of 90%; average risk-free interest rate of 1.50% initial expected life of 5 years; no expected dividend yield; and amortized over the vesting period of typically one to four years. The Company reported an expense for share-based compensation for its employees and directors of $311,000 and $162,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Impairment of Long Lived Assets

The Company's long-lived assets currently consist of capitalized patents The Company evaluates its long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable. If any of the Company's long-lived assets are considered to be impaired, the amount of impairment to be recognized is equal to the excess of the carrying amount of the assets over the fair value of the assets.

Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability approach, whereby deferred income tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax effects, based on current enacted tax laws, of temporary differences between financial and tax reporting for current and prior periods. Deferred tax assets are reduced, if necessary, by a valuation allowance if the corresponding future tax benefits may not be realized.

Net Income (Loss) per Share

Basic net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net loss for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net loss for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, plus the potential dilutive effect of common shares issuable upon exercise or conversion of outstanding stock options and warrants during the period. The weighted average number of potentially dilutive common shares excluded from the calculation of net income (loss) per share totaled in 12,525,721 in 2015 and 3,092,737 in 2014.

Patents

Acquired patents are capitalized at their acquisition cost or fair value. The legal costs, patent registration fees and models and drawings required for filing patent applications are capitalized if they relate to commercially viable technologies. Commercially viable technologies are those technologies that are projected to generate future positive cash flows in the near term. Legal costs associated with patent applications that are not determined to be commercially viable are expensed as incurred. All research and development costs incurred in developing the patentable idea are expensed as incurred. Legal fees from the costs incurred in successful defense to the extent of an evident increase in the value of the patents are capitalized.


Capitalized cost for pending patents are amortized on a straight-line basis over the remaining twenty year legal life of each patent after the costs have been incurred. Once each patent is issued, capitalized costs are amortized on a straight-line basis over the shorter of the patent's remaining statutory life, estimated economic life or ten years.

Fixed Assets

Fixed assets is stated at cost. Depreciation is computed on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which are 3 to 10 years for machinery and equipment and the shorter of the lease term or estimated economic life for leasehold improvements.

Fair Value

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for receivables and current liabilities each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of fair value because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest. The three levels are defined as follows:

· Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets. The Company's Level 1 assets include cash equivalents, primarily institutional money market funds, whose carrying value represents fair value because of their short-term maturities of the investments held by these funds.

· Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument. The Company's Level 2 liabilities consist of liabilities arising from the issuance of convertible securities and in accordance with ASC 815-40: a warrant liability for detachable warrants, as well as an accrued derivative liability for the beneficial conversion feature. These liabilities are remeasured each reporting period. Fair value is determined using the Black-Scholes valuation model based on observable market inputs, such as share price data and a discount rate consistent with that of a government-issued security of a similar maturity.

· Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

The following table represents the Company's assets and liabilities by level measured at fair value on a recurring basis at December 31, 2015.

Research and Development

Research and development costs are expensed as incurred and reported as research and development expense. Research and development costs totaling $900,000 and $-0- for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Revenue Recognition

Product Revenue

The Company manufactures, or has manufactured on a contract basis, fine chemicals and nutraceutical products, which are its primary products to be sold to customers. Revenue from the sale of its products, including shipping fees, will be recognized when title to the products is transferred to the customer which usually occurs upon shipment or delivery, depending upon the terms of the sales order and when collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue from sales to distributors of its products will be recognized, net of allowances, upon delivery of product to the distributors. According to the terms of individual distributor contracts, a distributor may return product up to a maximum amount and under certain conditions contained in its contract. Allowances are calculated based upon historical data, current economic conditions and the underlying contractual terms.

License Revenue

License arrangements may consist of non-refundable upfront license fees, exclusive licensed rights to patented or patent pending technology, and various performance or sales milestones and future product royalty payments. Some of these arrangements are multiple element arrangements.

Non-refundable, up-front fees that are not contingent on any future performance by us, and require no consequential continuing involvement on our part, are recognized as revenue when the license term commences and the licensed data, technology and/or compound is delivered. We defer recognition of non-refundable upfront fees if we have continuing performance obligations without which the technology, right, product or service conveyed in conjunction with the non-refundable fee has no utility to the licensee that is separate and independent of our performance under the other elements of the arrangement. In addition, if we have continuing involvement through research and development services that are required because our know-how and expertise related to the technology is proprietary to us, or can only be performed by us, then such up-front fees are deferred and recognized over the period of continuing involvement.

Payments related to substantive, performance-based milestones in a research and development arrangement are recognized as revenue upon the achievement of the milestones as specified in the underlying agreements when they represent the culmination of the earnings process.

Use of Estimates

The financial statements and notes are representations of the Company's management, which is responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements. The preparation of financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities revenues and expenses and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Periodically, the Company reviews its patent portfolio and has determined that certain patent applications no longer possessed commercial viability or were abandoned since they were inconsistent with the Company's business development strategy.


3. Debt

Convertible debentures

On October 25, 2006, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement ("2006 Purchase Agreement") with four accredited investors (the "2006 Purchasers"). In conjunction with the signing of the 2006 Purchase Agreement, the Company issued secured convertible debentures ("2006 Debentures") and Series A, B, C, D, and E common stock warrants ("2006 Warrants") to the 2006 Purchasers, and the parties also entered into a security agreement (the "2006 Security Agreement") pursuant to which the Company agreed to grant the 2006 Purchasers, pari passu, a security interest in substantially all of the Company's assets.

Pursuant to the terms of the 2006 Purchase Agreement, the Company issued the 2006 Debentures in an aggregate principal amount of $1,694,250 to the 2006 Purchasers. The 2006 Debentures are subject to an original issue discount of 20.318% resulting in proceeds to the Company of $1,350,000 from the transaction. The 2006 Debentures were due on October 25, 2008. The 2006 Debentures are convertible, at the option of the 2006 Purchasers, at any time prior to payment in full, into shares of common stock of the Company. As a result of the full ratchet anti-dilution provision the current conversion price is $2.50 per share (the "2006 Conversion Price"). Beginning on the first of the month beginning February 1, 2007, the Company was required to amortize the 2006 Debentures in equal installments on a monthly basis resulting in a complete repayment by the maturity date (the "Monthly Redemption Amounts"). The Monthly Redemption Amounts could have been paid in cash or in shares, subject to certain restrictions. If the Company chose to make any Monthly Redemption Amount payment in shares of common stock, the price per share would have been the lesser of the Conversion Price then in effect and 85% of the weighted average price for the 10-trading days prior to the due date of the Monthly Redemption Amount. The Company did not make any of the required monthly redemption payments.

Pursuant to the provisions of the 2006 Debentures, such non-payment was an event of default and penalty interest has accrued on the unpaid redemption balance at an interest rate equal to the lower of 18% per annum and the maximum rate permitted by applicable law. In addition, each of the 2006 Purchasers has the right to accelerate the cash repayment of at least 130% of the outstanding principal amount of the 2006 Debenture (plus accrued but unpaid liquidated damages and interest) and to sell substantially all of the Company's assets pursuant to the provisions of the 2006 Security Agreement to satisfy any such unpaid balance. On June 6, 2008, the Company received notification from Bristol Investment Fund, Ltd ("Bristol"), that the collateral held under the 2006 Security Agreement would be sold to the highest qualified bidder on Thursday, June 19, 2008. On June 19, 2008, the Company received a Notice of Disposition of Collateral from Bristol in which Bristol notified the Company that Bristol, acting as the agent for itself and the three other 2006 Purchasers, purchased certain assets held as collateral under the 2006 Security Agreement. Bristol purchased 111,025 shares of common stock of BioCheck, Inc., the Company's majority owned subsidiary, on a credit bid of $50,000, and Bristol also purchased 1,000 shares of the capital stock of OXIS Therapeutics, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of OXIS, for a credit bid of $10,000. In December 2005, OXIS purchased the 111,025 shares of common stock of BioCheck, Inc. for $3,060,000. After crediting the aggregate amount of $60,000 to the aggregate amount due under the 2006 Debentures, plus fees and charges due through June 19, 2008, Bristol notified the Company that the Company remains obligated to the 2006 Purchasers in a deficiency in an aggregate amount of $2,688,000 as of June 19, 2008. As a result of the disposition of the collateral, the Company recorded a net loss aggregating $2,978,000.

Under the 2006 Purchase Agreement, the 2006 Purchasers also have a right of first refusal to participate in up to 100% of any future financing undertaken by the Company until the 2006 Debentures are no longer outstanding. In addition, the Company is also prohibited from effecting any subsequent financing involving a variable rate transaction until such time as no 2006 Purchaser holds any of the 2006 Debentures. Furthermore, so long as any 2006 Purchaser holds any of the securities issued under the 2006 Purchase Agreement, if the Company issues or sells any common stock or instruments convertible into common stock which a 2006 Purchaser reasonably believes is on terms more favorable to such investors than the terms pursuant to the 2006 Debentures or 2006 Warrants, the Company is obligated to permit such 2006 Purchaser the benefits of such better terms.

Of the 2006 Warrants issued by the Company to the 2006 Purchasers, only the Series A Warrants remain outstanding. The Series A Warrants, which now expire in July 2019, permit the holders to purchase 9,681 shares of common stock at an original exercise price of $87.50 per share. Such exercise price is adjustable pursuant to a full ratchet anti-dilution provision and upon the occurrence of a stock split or a related event.

During 2009, Bristol converted $177,900 of the principal amount of 2006 Debentures for 71,160 shares of the Company's common stock. During 2010, Bristol converted an additional $401,000 of the principal amount of 2006 Debentures for 160,400 shares of the Company's common stock. During 2011, an additional $605,000 of the principal amount of 2006 Debentures was converted into 242,000 shares of the Company's common stock. During 2012, an additional $369,625 of the principal amount of 2006 Debentures was converted into 350,619 shares of the Company's common stock.

The 2006 Debentures do not meet the definition of a "conventional convertible debt instrument" since they are not convertible into a fixed number of shares. The Monthly Redemption Amounts can be paid with common stock at a conversion price that is a percentage of the market price; therefore the number of shares that could be required to be delivered upon "net-share settlement" is essentially indeterminate. Therefore, the 2006 Debentures are considered "non-conventional," which means that the conversion feature must be bifurcated from the debt and shown as a separate derivative liability. This beneficial conversion liability has been calculated to be $690,000 on October 25, 2006. In addition, since the 2006 Debentures are convertible into an indeterminate number of shares of common stock, it is assumed that the Company could never have enough authorized and unissued shares to settle the conversion of the 2006 Warrants issues in this transaction into common stock. Therefore, the 2006 Warrants have a fair value of $2,334,000 at October 25, 2006. The value of the 2006 Warrant was calculated using the Black-Scholes model using the following assumptions: Discount rate of 4.5%, volatility of 158% and expected term of 1 to 6 years. The fair value of the beneficial conversion feature and the 2006 Warrant liability will be adjusted to fair value on each balance sheet date with the change being shown as a component of net loss. The fair value of the beneficial conversion feature and the 2006 Warrants at the inception of the 2006 Debentures were $690,000 and $2,334,000, respectively. The first $1,350,000 of these discounts was amortized over the term of the 2006 Debenture and the excess of $1,674,000 was been shown as financing costs in statement of operations.

The Company and Bristol entered into a Forbearance Agreement on December 3, 2015, pursuant to which Bristol agreed to refrain and forbear from exercising certain rights and remedies with respect the 2006 Debentures for three months. In exchange for the Forbearance Agreement, the Company issued an allonge in the amount of $250,000 increasing the principal amount if the 2006 Debentures.

On October 1, 2009, the Company entered into a financing arrangement with several accredited investors (the "2009 Investors"), pursuant to which it sold various securities in consideration of a maximum aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000 (the "2009 Financing"). In connection with the 2009 Financing, the Company issued the following securities to the 2009 Investors:

· 0% Convertible Debentures in the principal amount of $2,000,000 due 24 months from the date of issuance (the " 2009 Debentures"), convertible into shares of the Company's common stock at a per share conversion price equal to $12.50 per share;
· Series A warrant to purchase such number of shares of the Company's common stock equal to 50% of the principal amount invested by each 2009 Investor (the "2009 Class A Warrants" ) resulting in the issuance of Class A Warrants to purchase 80,000 shares of common stock of the Company.
· Series B warrant to purchase such number of shares of the Company's common stock equal to 50% of the principal amount invested by each 2009 Investor (the "2009 Class B Warrants") resulting in the issuance of Class B Warrants to purchase 80,000 shares of common stock of the Company.

The Class A Warrants and Class B Warrants (collectively, the " 2009 Warrants") are exercisable for up to five years from the date of issue at a per share exercise price equal to $15.625 and $18.75 for the Class A Warrants and the Class B Warrants, respectively, on a cash or cashless basis. The 2009 Debentures and the 2009 Warrants are collectively referred to herein as the "2009 Securities".

In connection with the sale of the 2009 Securities by the Company, the Company and Bristol entered a Standstill and Forbearance Agreement, pursuant to which Bristol agreed to refrain and forbear from exercising certain rights and remedies with respect to (i) the 2006 Debentures and (ii) certain demand notes (the "Bridge Notes") issued by the Company on October 8, 2008, March 19, 2009, April 7, 2009, April 28, 2009, May 21, 2009 and June 25, 2009 and discussed under the caption "Demand Notes" below. In connection with the sale of the 2009 Securities by the Company, the Company and Bristol have also entered into a waiver agreement (the "Waiver Agreement") pursuant to which Bristol waived certain rights with respect to the 2006 Debentures and Bridge Notes.
