Notes Payable – Third Parties
On March 31, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement to pledge certain of its accounts receivable as collateral against a prepaid forward purchase contract, whereby the Company received consideration in the amount of $5.0 million. The receivables had an estimated collectable value of $8.7 million, which had been adjusted down to approximately $1.5 million on the Company’s balance sheet as of December 31, 2016 and $0 as of December 31, 2017. In exchange for the consideration received, the counterparty received the right to: (i) a 20% per annum investment return from the Company on the consideration, with a minimum repayment term of six months and minimum return of $0.5 million, (ii) all payments recovered from the accounts receivable up to $5.25 million, if paid in full within six months, or $5.5 million, if not paid in full within six months, and (iii) 20% of all payments of the accounts receivable in excess of amounts received in (i) and (ii). On March 31, 2017, to the extent that the counterparty had not been paid $6.0 million, the Company was required to pay the difference.
Christopher Diamantis, a director of the Company, guaranteed the Company’s obligation. On March 24, 2017, the Company, the counterparty and Mr. Diamantis, as guarantor, entered into an amendment to extend the Company’s obligation to March 31, 2018. Also, what the counterparty is to receive was amended to equal (a) the $5,000,000 purchase price plus a 20% per annum investment return thereon, plus (b) $500,000, plus (c) the product of (i) the proceeds received from the accounts receivable, minus the amount set forth in clauses (a) and (b), multiplied by 40%. In connection with this extension, the counterparty received a fee of $1,000,000. On April 2, 2018, the Company, the counterparty and Mr. Diamantis, as guarantor, entered into a second amendment to extend further the Company’s obligation to May 30, 2018. In connection with this further extension, the counterparty received a fee of $100,000. To date, the Company has not recovered any payments against the accounts receivable and the full balance is now payable. The counterparty has instituted an arbitration proceeding under the agreement with regard to the outstanding balance. As of November 14, 2018, the Company has not made a payment under this agreement and the full balance is now payable. The Company does not have the financial resources to satisfy this amount.
The Company did not make the required monthly principal and interest payments due under the TCA Debenture for the period from October 2016 through March 2017. On February 2, 2017, the Company made a payment to TCA in the amount of $0.4 million, which was applied to accrued and unpaid interest and fees, including default interest, as of the date of payment. On March 21, 2017, the Company made a payment to TCA in the amount of $0.75 million, of which approximately $0.1 million was applied to accrued and unpaid interest and fees in accordance with the terms of the TCA Debenture. Also on March 21, 2017, the Company entered into a letter agreement with TCA, which (i) waived any payment defaults through March 21, 2017; (ii) provided for the $0.75 million payment discussed above; (iii) set forth a revised repayment schedule whereby the remaining principal plus interest aggregating to approximately $2.6 million was to be repaid in various monthly installments from April of 2017 through September of 2017; and (iv) provided for payment of an additional service fee in the amount of $150,000, which was due on June 27, 2017, the day after the effective date of the registration statement filed by the Company; which amount is reflected in accrued expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2017. In addition, TCA entered into an inter-creditor agreement with the purchasers of the convertible debentures (see Note 9) which sets forth rights, preferences and priorities with respect to the security interests in the Company’s assets. On September 19, 2017, the Company entered into a new agreement with TCA, which extended the repayment schedule through December 31, 2017. The principal balance as of September 30, 2018, was reduced from $1.6 million to $1.4 million, with interest accrued of approximately $145,000. The remaining debt to TCA remains outstanding and TCA has made a demand for payment. The parties are currently working to amend the TCA Debenture to extend the maturity although there can be no assurance that the parties will agree to any such extension.
The Company did not make the principal payments under the Tegal Notes that were due on July 12, 2016. On November 3, 2016, the Company received a default notice from the holders of the Tegal Notes demanding immediate repayment of the outstanding principal of $341,612 and accrued interest of $43,000. On December 7, 2016, the Company received a breach of contract complaint with a request for the entry of a default judgment (see Note 15). On April 23, 2018, the holders of the Tegal Notes received a judgment against the Company. To date, the Company has yet to repay this amount.
Notes Payable – Related Parties
On February 3, 2015, the Company borrowed $3.0 million from Alcimede LLC (“Alcimede”). Seamus Lagan, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, is the sole manager of Alcimede. The note had an interest rate of 6% and was originally due on February 2, 2016. Alcimede later agreed to extend the maturity date of the loan to August 2, 2017. On June 29, 2015, Alcimede exercised options granted in October 2012 to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock, and the loan outstanding was reduced in satisfaction of the aggregate exercise price of $2.5 million. In August of 2016, $0.3 million was repaid by the Company through the issuance of shares of common stock. In March of 2017, the Company and Mr. Lagan agreed that a payment made to Alcimede in the amount of $50,000 would be deducted from the outstanding balance of the note. On August 2, 2017, the Company and Alcimede agreed to further extend the maturity date of the loan to August 2, 2018. On July 23, 2018, the Company issued preferred stock to Alcimede and part of the consideration was full settlement of this loan as more fully discussed in Note 20.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company borrowed $3.1 million from Christopher Diamantis and repaid $2.6 million. The loan payable balance including interest was $0.5 million on September 30, 2018.
