Schedule of Notes Payable
Notes Payable – Third Parties
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 September 19, 2017, the Company entered into a new agreement with TCA, which extended the repayment schedule through December 31, 2017. In May 2020, the SEC appointed a Receiver to close down the TCA Global Credit Master Fund, L.P. The amount recorded by the Company as being owed to TCA as of December 31, 2020 was based on TCA’s application of prior payments made by the Company. The Company and the Receiver entered into a settlement agreement dated effective as of September 30, 2021, under which the Company agreed to pay $500,000 as full and final settlement of principal and accrued interest, of which $250,000 was paid during 2021 and the remaining $250,000 is due in five consecutive monthly installments of $50,000 payable on or before the fifth day of each month. As a result of the settlement, in the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company recorded a gain from legal settlement, resulting from the adjustments of principal and accrued interest, of $2.2 million.
The Company did not make the second annual principal payment under the Tegal Notes that was 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 at that time 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 14). On April 23, 2018, the holders of the Tegal Notes received a judgment against the Company. As of December 31, 2021, the Company has paid $50,055 of the principal amount of these notes.
On September 27, 2019, the Company issued a promissory note payable to Anthony O’Killough in the principal amount of $1.9 million and received proceeds of $1.5 million, which was net of a $0.3 million original issue discount and $0.1 million of financing fees. The first principal payment of $1.0 million was due on November 8, 2019 and the remaining $0.9 million was due on December 26, 2019. These payments were not made. In February 2020, Mr. O’Killough sued the Company and Mr. Diamantis, as guarantor, in New York State Supreme Court for the County of New York, for approximately $2.2 million for non-payment of the promissory note. In May 2020, the Company, Mr. Diamantis, as guarantor, and Mr. O’Killough entered into a Stipulation providing for a payment of a total of $2.2 million (which included accrued “penalty” interest as of that date) in installments through November 1, 2020. As of December 31, 2021, $450,000 had been paid in cash and $2.3 million ($1.5 million of principal and $0.8 million of accrued penalty interest), remained past due. On January 18, 2022, Mr. Diamantis paid $750,000 and the remaining balance is due 120 days thereafter. Mr. O’Killough agreed to forebear from any further enforcement action until then. The Company is obligated to repay Mr. Diamantis the $750,000 payment as well as any further payments that may be made by him. See below under the heading Note Payable – Related Party and Notes 14 and 18 for additional discussions of the Stipulation and the forbearance agreement.
As of April 20, 2020 and through May 1, 2020, the Company and its subsidiaries received PPP loan proceeds in the form of promissory notes (the “PPP Notes”) in the aggregate amount of approximately $2.4 million. The PPP Notes and accrued interest are forgivable as long as the borrower uses the loan proceeds for eligible purposes, including payroll, benefits, rent and utilities, and maintains its payroll levels. The amount of loan forgiveness will be reduced if the borrower terminates employees or reduces salaries. No collateral or guarantees were provided in connection with the PPP Notes. The unforgiven portion of the PPP Notes is payable over two years at an interest rate of 1.0% per annum, with a deferral of payments for the first sixteen months. Beginning sixteen months from the dates of issuance, the Company is required (if not forgiven) to make monthly payments of principal and interest to the lenders. As of December 31, 2021, $2.0 million of the principal balance of the PPP Notes was forgiven. In January 2022, an additional $0.3 million of principal balance was forgiven.
On January 29, 2020, the Company entered into the Ponte Note in the principal amount of $1.2 million, the proceeds of which were used to satisfy in full the amounts due under accounts receivable sales agreements entered into during 2019. Pursuant to the Ponte Note, weekly installment payments ranging from $22,500 to $34,000 were due on or before February 5, 2020 through on or before October 21, 2020, the maturity date. The Ponte Note, which was issued with an original issue discount in the amount of approximately $0.1 million, was non-interest bearing and subject to a late-payment fee of 10%. The Company did not make certain installment payments due under the note and accordingly it recorded a $9,850 late payment penalty and incurred certain legal fees in connection with the payment default. On May 5, 2021, the Company entered into a settlement agreement with the holder under which the Company agreed to pay $125,000 in full satisfaction of the note, which has been paid in full.
On August 10, 2021, the Company entered into two notes payable with Western Healthcare, LLC in the aggregate principal amount of $2.4 million. The notes were issued under the terms of a settlement agreement related to a professional medical staffing services agreement that the Company had previously entered into for medical staffing services. The notes bear interest at a rate of 18% per annum and are due no later than August 30, 2022. The Company paid $0.2 million to the note holders upon issuance of the notes. Monthly installments aggregating $0.2 million are due beginning August 31, 2021. As of December 31, 2021, $0.2 million of principal and $0.1 million of interest has been paid. The Company has not made all of the monthly installments due under the notes.
On each of February 25, 2021, April 9, 2021, April 16, 2021 and April 22, 2021, the Company entered into agreements with certain institutional investors for warrant prepayment promissory notes with an aggregate principal amount of $1.1 million. The Company received proceeds of $1.0 million from the investors and, accordingly, it recorded a total of $0.1 million in original issue discount of which was fully amortized during 2021. The investors could at their option apply all or any portion of the principal amount outstanding to the exercise of any common stock warrants of the Company. The notes were unsecured and they matured 12 months from the date of issuance. The notes did not bear interest but an interest rate of 18% was to be applied to the outstanding principal commencing five days after any event of default that resulted in their acceleration. On November 7, 2021, the principal balance of $1.1 million was exchanged for shares of the Company’s Series P Preferred Stock as more fully discussed in Note 12.
