|Bridge Financing, Notes Payable, and Accrued Interest||
Prior to June 2013, we issued 10% Senior Secured Convertible Bridge Notes Payable (Bridge Notes or new Bridge Notes) to various accredited investors, and then extended the due dates on the majority of the Bridge Notes several times. In June 2013, the outstanding principal of the Bridge Notes totaling $4,984,720 was converted into 4,153,934 shares of our common stock at $1.20 per share within the terms of the agreement; therefore, we did not recognize a gain or loss on this transaction. We no longer have any outstanding Bridge Notes.
The Bridge Notes contained variable maturity dates and additional share issuance obligations and we recorded discounts to the Bridge Notes for the VMCO and ASID. The discounts were amortized to interest expense over the term of the Bridge Notes using the effective interest method. We determined that the VMCO and the ASID represented embedded derivative features, and these were recorded as derivative liabilities. See Note 4.
We capitalized costs associated with the issuance of the Bridge Notes, and amortized these costs to interest expense over the term of the related Bridge Notes using the effective interest method.
The following table summarizes information relative to the outstanding Bridge Notes at December 31, 2014 and 2013:
Cherry Family Trust Note
This note was issued on March 1, 2007, for the principal amount of $20,000, interest accrues at the rate of 9% compounded annually, with a maturity date of December 31, 2008. Accrued interest was $0 and $16,943 as of December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Although this note is currently past due, the Company is legally prohibited from paying it due to a court order dated December 7, 2007 related to a summary judgment in favor of the Company stemming from litigation between the Company and Mr. Cherry. Accordingly, we have extinguished the note payable and related accrued interest in the amounts of $20,000 and $16,943, respectively, during 2014 and recorded a gain on debt extinguishment of $36,943.
Digimark, LLC Notes
As partial consideration for the acquisition of Boomtext in 2011, we issued an unsecured subordinated promissory note in the principal amount of $194,658. The promissory note did not bear interest, was payable in installments (varying in amount) from August 2011 through October 2012, and was subordinated to our obligations under the Bridge Notes discussed above.
We recorded the promissory note at the present value of the payments over the subsequent periods which amounted to $182,460. We amortized the discount using the effective interest method.
As of December 31, 2012, the outstanding balance on the note payable was $100,000, which was paid in June 2013.
