Note 19. Subsequent Events
On April 13, 2023, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with an accredited investor (the “Holder”) and issued a Senior Secured Convertible Promissory Note in principal amount of $3,500,000 (the “Note”), in a private placement (the “Offering”). The Company paid a placement agent fee in the amount of $175,000 in connection with the Offering. The cash proceeds disbursed to the Company from the issuance of the Note were $3,300,000, after deducting the placement agent fee and purchaser expenses.
The Company shall pay interest to the Holder quarterly in cash on the principal amount of this Note at a rate which fluctuates every calendar month, and is equal to (i) the monthly average Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) plus (ii) 5%, per annum (which interest rate may be increased as provided by the Purchase Agreement); provided, however, that in no event will the rate of interest for any month be less than 8% per annum. Interest shall be due and payable on the last calendar day of each quarter and on the maturity date, April 12, 2025 (the “Fixed Interest Payment Date”); provided, however, notwithstanding anything to the contrary provided in the Purchase Agreement or the Note, interest accrued but not yet paid will be due and payable upon any conversion, prepayment, and/or acceleration whether as a result of an Event of Default, as defined, or otherwise with respect to the principal amount being so converted, prepaid and/or accelerated.
In connection with the Offering, the Company also entered into a Security Agreement pursuant to which the Note is secured by all the Company’s existing and future assets.
All or any portion of the principal amount of the Note, plus accrued and unpaid interest and any late charges thereon, is convertible at any time, in whole or in part, at the Investor’s option, into shares of the Company’s common stock at an initial fixed conversion price of $6.00 per share, subject to certain customary adjustments. The Note imposes penalties on the Company for any failure to timely deliver any shares of the Company’s common stock issuable upon conversion. The Note may not be converted by the Investor into shares of common stock if such conversion would result in the Investor and its affiliates owning an aggregate of in excess of 4.99% of the then-outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock, provided that upon 61 days’ notice, such ownership limitation may be adjusted by the Investor, but in any case, to no greater than 9.99%.
