BDC Term Loan
On January 8, 2016, Livelenz (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company,) entered into an amendment of their original loan agreement dated August 26, 2011 with the Business Development Bank of Canada (“BDC”). Under this agreement the loan will mature, and the commitments will terminate on December 15, 2018. The company recorded $1,529 of debt issuance costs as part of the acquisition of Livelenz. During the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, the company recorded $841 of amortization expense.

Under this agreement the note will mature, repayments began on June 1, 2016, and the commitments will terminate on May 1, 2021.
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, 2016, the Company borrowed $1,000,000, under this facility.
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 $32,287 as of December 31, 2016 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, 2016, the company recorded $12,108 of amortization expense. As of December 31, 2016, the company has $20,179 of debt issuance costs remaining.
