NOTE 5 - RELATED PARTY DEBT AGREEMENTS
As of December 31, 2022 and June 30, 2022, the Company had no related party debt balance outstanding. Below are the activities for the Company’s related party debt agreements that existed during the periods ended December 31, 2022 and 2021 covered by the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
Subordinated Line of Credit Facility
On May 11, 2022, the Company entered into a Credit Facility Agreement (the “Subordinated LOC”) with Cleveland Capital, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Cleveland”), Herndon Plant Oakley, Ltd., (“HPO”), and other lenders (together with Cleveland and HPO, the “Lenders”). The Subordinated LOC provides the Company with a short-term line of credit not less than $3,000,000 and not more than $5,000,000, the proceeds of which shall be used by the Company for working capital purposes. In connection with the Subordinated LOC, the Company issued a separate subordinated unsecured promissory note in favor of each respective Lender (each promissory note, a “Note”) for each Lender’s commitment amount (each such commitment amount, a “Commitment Amount”). As of December 31, 2022, the Lenders committed to an aggregate commitment of $4,000,000.
Pursuant to the terms of the Subordinated LOC, each Lender severally agrees to make loans (each such loan, an “Advance”) up to such Lender’s Commitment Amount to the Company from time to time, until December 31, 2022 (the “Due Date”). The Company may, from time to time, prior to the Due Date, draw down, repay, and re-borrow on the Note, by giving notice to the Lenders of the amount to be requested to be drawn down.
Each Note bears an interest rate of 15.0% per annum on each Advance from and after the date of disbursement of such Advance and is payable on (i) the Due Date in cash or shares of common stock of the Company (the “Common Stock”) at the sole election of the Company, unless such Due Date extended pursuant to the Note, or (ii) on occurrence of an event of Default (as defined in the Note). The Due Date may be extended (i) at the sole election of the Company for one (1) additional year period from the Due Date upon the payment of a commitment fee equal to two percent (2%) of the Commitment Amount to the Lender within thirty (30) days prior to the original Due Date, or (ii) by the Lender in writing. In addition, each Lender signed a Subordination Agreement by and between the Lenders and SVB dated as of May 11, 2022 (the “Subordination Agreement”) for the purposes of subordinating the right to payment under the Note to SVB’s indebtedness by the Company now outstanding or hereinafter incurred. On December 15, 2022, the Board of Directors of the Company elected to extend the Due Date to December 31, 2023 and the Company paid the Lenders an extension fee in the aggregate amount of $80,000.
The Subordinated LOC includes customary representations, warranties and covenants by the Company and the Lenders. The Company has also agreed to pay the legal fees of Cleveland’s counsel in an amount up to $10,000. In addition, each Note also provides that, upon the occurrence of a Default, at the option of the Lender, the entire outstanding principal balance, all accrued but unpaid interest and/or Late Charges (as defined in the Note) at once will become due and payable upon written notice to the Company by the Lender.
In connection with entry into the Subordinated LOC, the Company paid to each Lender a one-time committee fee in cash equal to 3.5% of such Lender’s Commitment Amount. In addition, in consideration of the Lenders’ commitment to provide the Advances to the Company, the Company issued the Lenders five-year warrants to purchase an aggregate of 128,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $2.53 per share that are, subject to certain ownership limitations, exercisable immediately (the “Warrants”) (the number of warrants issued to each Lender is equal to the product of (i) 160,000 shares of common stock multiplied by (ii) the ratio represented by each Lender’s Commitment Amount divided by the $5,000,000).
Pursuant to a selling agreement, dated as of May 11, 2022, the Company retained HPO as its placement agent in connection with the Subordinated LOC. As compensation for services rendered in conjunction with the Subordinated LOC, the Company paid HPO a finder fee equal to 3% of the Commitment Amount from each such Lender placed by HPO in cash.
The entire disclosure for related party transactions. Examples of related party transactions include transactions between (a) a parent company and its subsidiary; (b) subsidiaries of a common parent; (c) and entity and its principal owners; and (d) affiliates.
