Do we need to issue a 1099 to an investor who exercised penny warrants?

Oddly - I can't seem to get a definitive answer from our accountant on this!

We issued penny warrants for common stock to an investor in connection with a loan they provided. The investor exercised the warrants at $0.01 per share, while the 409(A) valuation valued the common stock at $0.13 per share. Do I need to issue the investor a 1099-ord for the # shares X (0.13-.01)? I am finding conflicting information on the internet. Seems like it would be a common situation. Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
