March 2020 10% Note Purchase Agreement and Promissory Note

On March 18, 2020, the Company entered into a note purchase agreement with Iliad Research and Trading, L.P. ("Iliad"), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to the holder an unsecured promissory note (the “March 2020 10% Note”) in an aggregate initial principal amount of $6,465,000, which is payable on or before the date that is 12 months from the issuance date. The initial principal amount includes an original issue discount of $1,450,000 and $15,000 that the Company agreed to pay to the holder to cover the holder’s legal fees, accounting costs, due diligence, monitoring and other transaction costs.

In exchange for the March 2020 10% Note, the holder paid an aggregate purchase price of $5,000,000. Interest on the March 2020 10% Note accrues at a rate of 10% per annum and is payable on the maturity date or otherwise in accordance with the March 2020 10% Note. The Company may pay all or any portion of the amount owed earlier than it is due; provided, that in the event the Company elects to prepay all or any portion of the outstanding balance, it shall pay to the holder 115% of the portion of the outstanding balance the Company elects to prepay.

Beginning on the date that is 6 months from the issuance date and at the intervals indicated below until the March 2020 10% Note is paid in full, the holder shall have the right to redeem up to an aggregate of 1/3 of the initial principal balance of the March 2020 10% Note each month by providing written notice delivered to the Company; provided, however, that if the holder does not exercise any monthly redemption amount in its corresponding month then such monthly redemption amount shall be available for the holder to redeem in any future month in addition to such future month’s monthly redemption amount.

Upon receipt of any monthly redemption notice, the Company shall pay the applicable monthly redemption amount in cash to the holder within five business days of the Company’s receipt of such Monthly Redemption Notice. The March 2020 10% Note includes customary event of default provisions, subject to certain cure periods, and provides for a default interest rate of 22%. Upon the occurrence of an event of default (except a default due to the occurrence of bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings, the holder may, by written notice, declare all unpaid principal, plus all accrued interest and other amounts due under the March 2020 10% Note to be immediately due and payable. Upon the occurrence of a bankruptcy-related event of default, without notice, all unpaid principal, plus all accrued interest and other amounts due under the March 2020 10% Note will become immediately due and payable at the mandatory default amount. On September 17, 2020, the Company amended the one time monitoring fee applicable in the event the note was outstanding on the date that was 6 months from the issuance date, from (10%) to 5% which was added to the March 2020 10% Note balance. On March 17, 2021, the Company extended the maturity date of the March 2020 10% Note from March 18, 2021 to March 18, 2022.

On February 11, 2021, the Company entered into an exchange agreement with Iliad, pursuant to which the Company and Iliad agreed to: (i) partition a new promissory note in the form of the March 2020 10% Note equal to $1.5 million and then cause the outstanding balance of the March 2020 10% Note to be reduced by $1.5 million; and (ii) exchange the partitioned note for the delivery of 893,921 shares of the Company’s Common Stock, at an effective price per share equal to $1.678. The Company analyzed the exchange of the principal under the March 2020 10% Note as an extinguishment and compared the net carrying value of the debt being extinguished to the reacquisition price (shares of common stock being issued) and recorded approximately a $30,000 loss on the exchange of debt for equity as a separate item in the other income/expense section of the condensed consolidated statements of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2021.
