Convertible Notes Payable

 

On January 23, 2020, Edison Nation, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a $1,100,000 loan agreement the (“Loan Agreement”) with Greentree Financial Group, Inc. (the “Investor”), pursuant to which the Investor purchased a 10% Convertible Promissory Note (the “Note”) from the Company, and the Company issued to the Investor a three year warrant (the “Warrant”) to purchase 550,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”). The Note is convertible at any time at a price of $2.00 per share, subject to certain adjustments to the conversion price set forth in the Note. The Note reiterates the registration rights set forth in the Loan Agreement and the Warrant. There is no prepayment penalty on the Note. If the Note is not prepaid by the 90th day after the effective date of the Registration Statement, the Investor is required to convert the entire amount of principal and interest outstanding on the Note at that time, at a price of $2.00 per share, unless an event of default (as such events are described in the Note) under the Note has occurred, in which case the Note would be mandatorily converted at a price equal to 50% of the lowest trading price of the Common Stock for the last 10 trading days immediately prior to, but not including, the date that the Note mandatorily converts. In the event that the average of the 15 lowest closing prices for the Company’s common stock on NASDAQ or other primary trading market for the Company’s common stock (the average of such lowest closing prices being herein referred to, the “True-up Price”) during the period beginning on the effective date of the Registration Statement and ending on the 90th day after the effective date of the Registration Statement (the “Subsequent Pricing Period”) is less than $2.00 per share, then the Company will issue the Lender additional shares of the Company’s common stock (the “True-up Shares”) within three days. No value has been assigned to the True-up Shares due to the contingency of an effective Registration Statement. The warrant has an exercise price of $2.00 per share, subject to certain adjustments to the exercise price set forth in the Warrant. The Warrant, as amended, expires on January 23, 2023. If the closing price per share of the Common Stock reported on the day immediately preceding an exercise of the Warrant is greater than $2.00 per share, the Warrant may be exercised cashlessly, based on a cashless exercise formula. The Warrant reiterates the registration rights set forth in the Loan Agreement and the Note. The Warrant also contains a repurchase provision, which at any time after the Registration Statement is effective and the Common Stock has traded at a price over $3.00 share for 20 consecutive days, gives the Company a 30-day option to repurchase any unexercised portion of the Warrant at a price of $1.00 per share. The $1,100,000 of proceeds from the Note will be used for general working capital purposes and for the repayment of debt. On January 24, 2020, the Company used $588,366 of the proceeds from the Note to pay off in full the 12% Convertible Promissory Note held by Labrys Fund, LP. Upon execution of the Loan Agreement, the Company issued to the Investor 100,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Origination Shares”) as an origination fee, plus an additional 60,000 shares of Common Stock as consideration for advisory services. Pursuant to the Loan Agreement, the Company agreed to issue and sell to the Investor the Note, in the principal amount of $1,100,000.

 

On January 29, 2020, the Company and Greentree Financial Group, Inc. (the “Investor”), entered into an Amendment Agreement, amending the January 22, 2020 Loan Agreement, the Note, and the Warrant to: (i) correct the effective date set forth in the Loan Agreement, Note and Warrant to January 23, 2020 and the due date to October 23, 2020, (ii) clarify the terms of the registration right provision in the Loan Agreement such that the Company was required to register a total of 1,500,000 shares of Common Stock, which such amount of shares is the sum of 550,000 shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Note, 550,000 Warrant Shares, the 100,000 Origination Shares, and 300,000 shares of Common Stock to account for changes to the conversion and/or exercise price under the Note and Warrant, and (iii) to ensure that the total number of shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the Loan Agreement, the Note, and/or the Warrant, each as amended, does not exceed 17.99% of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Stock as of January 23, 2020. The Company is subject to a $35,000 penalty on a monthly basis if a registration statement is not effective after 105 days from January 23, 2020. The Company recognized a beneficial conversion option of $586,785 related to the 550,000 shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Note, a debt discount of $296,891 based on the relative fair value related to the 550,000 Warrant Shares, a debt discount of $201,324 based on the relative fair value related to the 160,000 Origination and Advisory Shares.

32E Financing

 

On December 4, 2019, the Company agreed to issue and sell to 32 Entertainment LLC (“32E”) a 10% Senior Secured Note (the “32E Note”), in the principal amount of $250,000. The maturity date of the 32E Note is December 4, 2020. In addition, the Company issued to 32E 10,000 shares of common stock as an inducement to 32E to purchase the 32E Note. The $250,000 of proceeds from the 32E Note was used for general working capital needs of the Company and the repayment of debt related to Horberg Enterprises.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the 32E Note, on December 4, 2019, the Company also issued 32E a Common Stock Purchase Warrant (the “32E Warrant”) to purchase 50,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $1.50 per share. The 32E Warrant expires on December 4, 2024. The 32E Warrant contains price protection provisions, as well as a provision allowing 32E to purchase the number of shares that 32E could have acquired if it held the number of shares of common stock acquirable upon complete exercise of the 32E Warrant, in the event that the Company grants, issues or sells common stock, common stock equivalents, rights to purchase common stock, warrants, securities or other property pro rate to holders of any class of the Company’s securities. If there is no effective registration statement registering the resale of the shares of common stock underlying the 32E Warrant, then the 32E Warrant may be exercised, based on a cashless exercise formula. The 32E Warrant also contains a conversion limitation provision, which prohibits 32E from exercising the 32E Warrant in an amount that would result in the beneficial ownership of greater than 4.9% of the total issued and outstanding shares of common stock, provided that (i) such exercise limitation may be waived by 32E with 61 days prior notice, and (ii) 32E cannot waive the exercise limitation if conversion of the 32E Warrant would result in 32E having beneficial ownership of greater than 9.9% of the total issued and outstanding shares of common stock.

 

In connection with the sale of the 32E Note, also on December 4, 2019, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement whereby the Company agreed to register the 10,000 shares of common stock issued to 32E as an inducement on a registration statement on Form S-1 with the SEC. The Company was required to have such registration statement declared effective by the SEC within 90 calendar days (or 180 calendar days in the event of a “full review” by the SEC) following the earlier of 30 days from December 4, 2019 or the filing date of the registration statement on Form S-1, which such registration statement has not been filed or timely declared effective. If the registration statement is not filed or declared effective within the timeframe set forth in the registration rights agreement, the Company was supposed to be obligated to pay to 32E a monthly amount equal to 1% of the total subscription amount paid by 32E until such failure is cured. The Company has not made any such payment 32E. The registration rights agreement also contains mutual indemnifications by the Company and each investor, which the Company believes are customary for transactions of this type.

 

On May 19, 2020, the Company entered into an Amendment (the “Amendment”) to the 32E Note. Under the terms of the Amendment, the Company issued to 32E an Amended Subordinate Secured Note (the “Replacement Note”) in the principal amount of $200,000 that accrues interest at 16% annually and matures on May 21, 2021. On May 28, 2020, the Company paid $50,000 toward the principal plus interest in the amount of $6,250 for a total of $56,250. 32E shall also receive 40,000 restricted stock units and surrender the warrant issued to it in the December 4, 2019 financing transaction. The Company accounted for the Amendment as a modification.
