THE FOREGOING GENERAL DISCUSSION IS QUALIFIED BY THE MORE DETAILED ITEM DESCRIPTIONS AND THE REFERENCED EXHIBIT DOCUMENTS BELOW.
Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Convertible Note issued to Tangiers Global, LLC
The Company has closed a financing on May 24, 2018, (the “Effective Date”) in which it issued a 12% Fixed Convertible Promissory Note dated May 22, 2018 (the “Note”) in the original principal amount of $105,000 due November 22, 2018 to Tangiers Global, LLC (sometimes referred to as “Tangiers” or the “Holder”). The amount of $5,000 was retained by the Holder through an original issue discount for due diligence and legal bills related to this transaction, and the Company received net proceeds of $100,000. In the Event of Default under this Note, the outstanding principal amount of the Note shall become, at the Holder’s election, immediately due and payable. The principal will increase by 35% of the outstanding principal amount of the Note. In addition to the “guaranteed” interest referenced above, in event of occurrence of an Event of Default, additional interest would accrue from the date of the Event of Default at the rate equal to the lower of 22% per annum or the highest rate permitted by law.
The Note provides for customary events of default such as failing to timely make payments under the Note when due, unsatisfied judgments against the Company, failure to issue conversion shares in a timely manner, “chilled status” imposed by The Depository Trust Corporation or a trading suspension issued by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, failure of the Company to comply with the periodic reporting requirements of the Exchange Act, including xbrl filings, or otherwise, so that the Company’s common stock ceases to remain eligible for sales made in reliance on Rule !44 under the Securities Act.
The Note is convertible at any time at a conversion price equal to 55% of the lowest trading price of the Company’s common stock during the 15 consecutive Trading Days prior to the date on which Holder elects to convert all or part of the Note.
This Note may be prepaid by the Company in accordance with the following schedule:
|Days Since Effective Date||Prepayment Amount|
|Under 90||115% of Principal Amount|
|91 to 120||120% of Principal Amount|
|121 to 180||125% of Principal Amount|
The Company agreed that it will not enter into a convertible debt financing transaction with any party other than the Holder for a period of 20 Trading Days following the Effective Date. The Company agreed that this was a material term of this Note and any breach of this provision will result in a default under the Note.
The Company also agreed to provisions of the Note granting the Holder “piggyback” registration rights for new registration statements filed by the Company, rights of refusal with respect to certain types of financings, as well as a “most favored nation” type of provision with regard to future convertible debt financings by the Company.
The foregoing description of the Convertible Note DOES not purport to be complete and IS qualified in ITS entirety by reference to the FORM OF SUCH PROMISSORY NOTE filed as AN Exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K IS are incorporated herein by reference. DEFINED TERMS USED IN THE DESCRIPTION of the Note IN THIS CURRENT REPORT SHALL HAVE THE MEANING PROVIDED IN THE NOTE, UNLESS SPECIFICALLY DEFINED ABOVE IN THIS REPORT.
