Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On December 8, 2018, we issued a convertible promissory note to one of our directors in the principal amount of $1,500,000, of which $1,300,000 was due upon the signing of such note and $200,000 was due within 30 days of the signing of such note. The note carries an interest rate of 24% per annum. The note matures on June 8, 2019, if we decide to redeem the note prior to maturity we must pay a redemption premium of 10%.
Within thirty days of an equity investment of over $3.5 million (a Qualifying Equity Investment), the note holder may convert all or any portion of the note and accrued interest into shares of our common stock. The conversion price to be used is that equal to 80% of the pre-money valuation per share in such Qualifying Equity Investment, provided that the overall valuation of our Company may not exceed $9,000,000 on a post-money but pre-conversion basis.
The note holder may convert all or any portion of the note and accrued interest into shares of our common stock if there is no Qualifying Equity Investment using a conversion price based on a pre-conversion valuation of our Company of $9,000,000.
Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement
On December 12, 2018, we redeemed several outstanding convertible debentures for an aggregate payment of $927,189. These convertible debentures consisted of (i) a convertible debenture issued on January 25, 2017 in the original principal amount of $300,000, (ii) a convertible debenture issued on March 2, 2017 in the original principal amount of $150,000, (iii) a convertible debenture issued on May 3, 2017 in the original principal amount of $150,000, (iv) a convertible debenture issued on November 20, 2017 in the original principal amount of $150,000, (v) a convertible debenture issued on February 14, 2018 in the original principal amount of $150,000 and (vi) a convertible debenture issued on June 5, 2018 in the original principal amount of $300,000.
