|8% CONVERTIBLE NOTES||
Beginning March 11, 2015 and through March 13, 2015, the Company entered into a series of substantially similar subscription agreements (each a “Subscription Agreement”) with each of Anson Investments Master Fund, Ltd., Equitec Specialists, LLC and Capital Ventures International (collectively, the “Note Investors”) pursuant to which the Company issued unsecured 8% Convertible Notes (the “Notes”, and such transaction, the “Notes Offering”) to the Note Investors in the aggregate principal amount of $750,000. On the closing of the Notes Offering on March 13, 2015 (the “Closing Date”), each Note Investor was issued a Note in the principal amount of $250,000. The Company did not engage any underwriter or placement agent in connection with the Notes Offering.
The Notes become due and payable on March 13, 2016 (the “Stated Maturity Date”) and may not be prepaid. The Notes bear interest on the unpaid principal balance at a rate equal to eight percent (8.0%) (computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed in a 360-day year) per annum until either (a) converted into shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.001 par value per share (“Common Stock”) or (b) the outstanding principal and accrued interest on the Notes is paid in full by the Company. Interest on the Notes becomes due and payable upon their conversion or the Stated Maturity Date and may become due and payable upon the occurrence of an event of default under the Notes. The Notes contain customary events of default, which include, among other things, (i) the Company’s failure to pay other indebtedness of $100,000 or more within the specified cure period for such breach; (iii) the acceleration of the stated maturity of such indebtedness; (iii) the insolvency of the Company; and (iv) the receipt of final, non-appealable judgments in the aggregate amount of $100,000 or more.
On September 8, 2015, we, along with the current holders of the Convertible Notes, entered into a series of substantially similar subordination agreements with the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (“MLSC” and such agreements, the “Subordination Agreements”), pursuant to which the holders of the Convertible Notes agreed to subordinate their right to payment under the Convertible Notes to MLSC’s right to receive payments under the MLSC Loan Agreement. Under the terms of the Subordination Agreements, the indebtedness accrued under the Convertible Notes may not be repaid unless and until all indebtedness and fees owed to MLSC under the MLSC Loan Agreement are repaid in full, but the right to convert the Convertible Notes into shares of Common Stock is expressly allowed.
At any time prior to the Stated Maturity Date, the holders of the Notes have the right to convert some or all of such Notes into the number of shares of Common Stock determined by dividing (a) the aggregate sum of the (i) principal amount of the Note to be converted, and (ii) amount of any accrued but unpaid interest with respect to such portion of the Note to be converted; and (b) the conversion price then in effect (the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion, the “Conversion Shares”). The initial conversion price is $0.20 per share, and it may be (A) reduced to any amount and for any period of time deemed appropriate by the Board of Directors of the Company, or (B) reduced or increased proportionately as a result of stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations, reorganizations, and similar transactions. A holder shall not have the right to convert any portion of a Note, if after giving effect to such conversion, the holder, together with its affiliates collectively, would beneficially own more than 4.99% or 9.99% (at the holder’s discretion) of the shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion.
The issuance and sale of the Notes and Conversion Shares (collectively, the “Securities”) has not been, and will not upon issuance be, registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and the Securities may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration under or exemption from the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws. The Securities were issued and sold in reliance upon an exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.
During the year ended September 30, 2016, $605,000 in principal outstanding under the Notes and $39,900 of accrued interest were converted into 3,224,494 shares of the Company’s Common Stock. During the year ended September 30, 2015, $145,000 of notes and $6,173 of interest were converted into 755,865 shares of the Company’s Common Stock. As of September 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015, principal amounts outstanding under the Notes amounted to $0 and $605,000, respectively.
The Company accounted for the conversion feature embedded within the Notes in accordance with ASC 815-10, Derivatives and Hedging. Because the options to convert into Common Stock are not indexed to the Company’s stock and are not classified within stockholders’ equity, the options to convert are recorded as liabilities at fair value. They are marked to fair value each reporting period through the consolidated statement of operations.
On the Closing Date, the derivative liability was recorded at fair value of $354,988 with the remaining proceeds of $395,012 allocated to the Notes. The allocation of funds to the derivative liability resulted in a discount on the Notes, which was accreted to interest expense over the life of the loan. For the year ended September 30, 2016, $131,252 of the loan discount has been accreted to interest expense. For the year ended September 30, 2015, $223,7835 of the loan discount has been accreted to interest expense and $145,000 of the principal was converted into 725,000 shares of common stock. As of September 30, 2016 and 2015 the accreted balance of the outstanding Notes was $0 and $473,747.
As a result of the conversion of notes we recorded other income of $142,964 for the year ended September 30, 2016 and due to the change in the estimated fair value of the derivative liability we recorded other income of $192,128 for the year ended September 30, 2016. As a result of a change in the estimated fair value of the derivative liability we recorded other expense of $67,395 and a gain on the conversion of notes of $87,291 for the year ended September 30, 2015.
