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 Diamantes, 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 (the “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 (ii) 40%. In connection with the extension, the counterparty received a fee of $1,000,000. To date, the Company has not recovered any payments against the accounts receivable. As of December 31, 2017, the Company has accrued $2.3 million for the counterparty’s required investment return, which is reflected in accrued expenses in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet, and $7.3 million was due to the counterparty on December 31, 2017. Subsequent to December 31, 2017, the Company entered into a second amendment to the terms of this agreement as more fully discussed in Note 20. The Company does not have the financial resources to repay this obligation.
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 consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2017. In addition, TCA entered into an intercreditor agreement with the purchasers of the convertible debentures (see Note 8) 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 to December 31, 2017. The Company is past due on its payments.
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 and accrued interest aggregating to $0.4 million. On December 7, 2016, the Company received a breach of contract complaint with a request for entry of a default judgment (see Note 15). To date, the Company has yet to repay this amount.
On September 15, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement with two investors whereby the Company sold to the investors convertible notes in the aggregate principal amount of $0.4 million (the “September 2016 Notes”) that were convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $112.50 per share. In conjunction with the sale of the September 2016 Notes, the Company issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 4,444 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $180.00 per share. Based on the allocation of the net proceeds from the September 2016 Notes to the fair value of the warrants, and the resulting beneficial conversion features, the Company recognized a discount for the entire face value of the September 2016 Notes, which was accreted through the notes’ maturity date of March 15, 2017. On March 13, 2017, the September 2016 Notes, along with the accompanying warrants, were exchanged for 26,667 shares of the Company’s common stock.
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 has 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 2,223 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $1,125.00 per share, 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 February 2, 2018. As of April 1, 2018, the balance outstanding on the note was $168,500.
During the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company repaid $110,000 that was outstanding to a former principal stockholder, and borrowed an additional $75,000 from this same stockholder, which has been repaid as of December 31, 2017. In addition, the Company borrowed $4.6 million from Mr. Diamantis, a director of the Company, of which $3.6 million was repaid (see Note 8).
