On November 1, 2018, the Company and CPT Investments, LLC., an affiliate of CPT (the "Noteholder") entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement for up to $2 million pursuant to which the Company issued and sold a $1,000,000 principal amount 10% senior unsecured subordinated convertible promissory note ("the Subordinated Promissory Note") to the Noteholder which we are using for working capital.
The Subordinated Promissory Note, which bears interest at the rate of 10% per annum, and the principal and accrued interest is due on November 1, 2021. The maturity date of the Subordinated Promissory Note is subject to acceleration in the event (i) the Closing (as that term is defined in the Merger Agreement) occur pursuant to the Merger Agreement, in which event the maturity date is accelerated to the fifth day after the Closing Date (as that term is defined in the Merger Agreement) and (ii) immediately upon an Event of Default (as that term is defined in the Subordinated Promissory Note). The Company has the right to prepay the amounts due under the Subordinated Promissory Note at any time, upon 15 days prior written notice to the Noteholder, subject to the term of the note and Noteholder consent. The Company’s obligations under the Subordinated Promissory Note are unsecured and subordinate to its obligations to Western Alliance Bank, the Company’s secured lender.
In the event Merger Agreement is terminated, and providing that the shares issuable upon the possible conversion of the Subordinated Promissory Note have been approved for listing on the NYSE American, the Noteholder may, upon 15 days written notice to the Company, elect to convert all or any portion of the principal and accrued and unpaid interest due under the Subordinated Promissory Note into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.44 per share, or $0.35 per share if the Merger Agreement is terminated for any reason other than in connection with a Superior Proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement). The conversion prices are subject to proportional adjustment in the event of stock split or adjustments. The Subordinated Promissory Note also contains a provision limiting the Company’s ability to issue any shares of our common stock upon any voluntary conversion by the Noteholder which, when aggregated with all shares of its common stock issued pursuant to a conversion of the Subordinated Promissory Note, would exceed 19.99% of our issued and outstanding shares of common stock immediately preceding the issuance of the note without first obtaining stockholder approval in accordance with the rules of the NYSE American.
On November 1, 2018 the Company also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with the Noteholder covering the shares of its common stock which may be issued upon a conversion of the Subordinated Promissory Note.
