SVB Working Capital Line of Credit Facility
In March 2016, we entered into a Working Capital Line of Credit Facility (the “Facility”) with Silicon Valley Bank (“SVB”) to provide up to $2 million to finance our general working capital needs. The Facility is funded based on cash on deposit balances and advances against our accounts receivable based on customer invoicing. Interest on Facility borrowings is calculated at rates between the prime rate minus 1.75% and prime rate plus 3.75% based on the borrowing base formula used at the time of borrowing. The Facility contains standard events of default, including payment defaults, breaches of representations, breaches of affirmative or negative covenants, and bankruptcy. During the twelve months ended December 31, 2017, the Company borrowed $1,000,000 under this Facility. As of March 31, 2018, this Facility was paid off and closed.
Under the terms of the Facility, the Company is obligated to pay a commitment fee on the available unused amount of the Facility commitments equal to 0.5% per annum.
The Company capitalized debt issuance costs of $47,287 as of December 31, 2017 related to the Facility, which are being amortized on a straight-line basis to interest expense over the two-year term of the Facility. During the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, the company recorded $27,393 of amortization expense. As of December 31, 2018, the company has $0 of debt issuance costs remaining.
Bridge Loan Promissory Note
On April 19, 2018, the Company entered into a bridge financing agreement (“Promissory Note”) for up to $1,000,000. The Promissory Note carries an interest rate of 2% per thirty days and a facility fee of 1% of the maximum loan amount. Under this agreement the note automatically renews every thirty days until paid in full. As of September 30, 2018, this Promissory Note has been paid off and closed.
On November 14, 2018, we entered into a Loan and Security Agreement with Wintrust Bank. The Loan and Security Agreement provides for a single-term loan to us in the original principal amount of $1,000,000. Interest accrues on the unpaid principal amount at the rate of prime plus 1.5%. The loan is a three-year loan and is interest-only payable for the first six months of the loan. Commencing on May 1, 2019, we will commence monthly payments of principal in the amount of $33,333.33 in addition to the monthly payment of accrued interest. The loan is secured by all of our assets other than our intellectual property. We used the proceeds of the loan to re-finance a loan in the principal amount of $1,000,000 we assumed as part of the acquisition of the Belly assets.
Related Party Notes
During February 2018, we conducted a private placement of Unsecured Promissory Notes (individually, a “Note” and collectively, the “Notes”) in the aggregate principal amount of $1,080,000 to certain investors, officers and directors of the Company. Each Note bears interest on the unpaid balance at the rate of fifteen percent (15%) per annum and the principal and accrued interest is due and payable no later than December 1, 2018. We may prepay any of the Notes without notice, subject to a two percent (2%) pre-payment penalty. The Note offer was conducted by our management and there were no commissions paid by us in connection with the solicitation. As of December 31, 2018, we have repaid $1,000,000 and have $80,000 as a remaining balance of these notes.
