Debt and Other Obligations

 

Convertible Notes Payable

 

On April 1, 2021, the Company, entered into a Secured Convertible Note Purchase Agreement (the “April 2021 Note Purchase Agreement”) with five (5) investors (the “Holders”). Pursuant to the terms of the April 2021 Note Purchase Agreement, the Company sold promissory notes in the aggregate principal amount of $2,575,000 maturing on June 30, 2022 with an annual interest rate of 8%. The Notes are convertible into shares of Common Stock at a discount of 20% to the price paid for such New Securities in the next round of financing that meets the definition of Qualified Financing as defined in the April 2021 Note Purchase Agreement. The Notes are secured by the assets of the Company under a security agreement with the Holders. The lead investor of the April 2021 Note Purchase Agreement, FWHC Bridge, LLC, advanced $1,500,000 of the total amount to the Company. FWHC Bridge, LLC is an affiliated entity of FWHC, LLC, which is a principal stockholder and related party of the Company. An additional affiliate of FWHC, LLC provided an additional $25,000 as part of the April 2021 Note Purchase Agreement.

 

On October 14, 2021, the Company entered into the Second Closing Bring Down Agreement (the “October 2021 Note Purchase Agreement”) whereby the five (5) investors who had entered into the April 2021 Note Purchase Agreement purchased new notes in the Company in the aggregate principal amount of $750,000. The Notes are due and payable on June 17, 2022 and bear interest at an annual rate of 8%. The Notes are convertible into shares of Common Stock at a discount of 20% to the price paid for such New Securities in the next financing that meets the definition of a Qualified Financing as defined in the Note Purchase Agreement. The Notes are secured by all of the assets of the Company under a security agreement with the Holders. The lead investor of the October 2021 Note Purchase Agreement, FWHC Bridge, LLC, advanced $437,000 of the total amount to the Company. FWHC Bridge, LLC is an affiliated entity of FWHC, LLC, which is a principal stockholder and related party of the Company. An additional affiliate of FWHC, LLC provided an additional $7,000 as part of the October 2021 Note Purchase Agreement. Management is currently working with the noteholders on the extension of the maturity of the outstanding notes.

 

On February 22, 2022, the Company entered into a Debt Conversion Agreement (the “Amendment Agreement”) which i) provided for an additional round of convertible debt financing (“Tranche 2 Notes”) of up to $500,000 and ii) amended the conversion price on the convertible notes issued April 1, 2021 and October 8, 2021 (Tranche 1 Notes”) from 80% of the price paid in a Qualified Financing (proceeds of at least $15 million), to the lesser of (x) $0.002 and (y) the price paid in a Qualified Financing (proceeds of at least $10 million). The Amendment Agreement also provides the following Milestone Payments:

 

  1) $1,000,000 after filing a premarket notification pursuant to Section 510(k) of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, of its intent to market its PRP cellular therapy
  2) Following the closing of a Qualified financing, 25% of all proceeds raised in excess of $10 million (not to exceed $1 million)

 

The Milestone Payments are not to exceed $2 million, and the Amendment Agreement also specifies that a Qualified Financing will not occur prior to the closing of the acquisition of Jantibody, LLC.

 

The Company evaluated the Amendment Agreement under ASC 470-50, “Debt - Modification and Extinguishment”, and concluded that probability of having to pay a Milestone payment was minimal and the change in the fair value of the conversion feature was not material. Since the Amendment did not cause a material change in cash flows, extinguishment accounting was not applicable.

 

On April 29, 2022, the Company entered into an Amended and Restated Note Conversion Agreement (the “Note Conversion Agreement”) with certain holders of its Tranche 1 Notes (i) providing for a conversion price equal to the lesser of (x) $0.002 per share (pre-split) and (y) the price per share paid by the investors in a Qualified Financing for such New Securities purchased for cash and not through conversion of Notes (as such terms are defined in the Note Conversion Agreement), in each case subject to appropriate adjustment in the event of any stock dividend, stock split, combination or other similar recapitalization, (ii) automatic conversion upon the occurrence of a Qualified Financing, and (iii) amendment of the maturity date from March 31, 2022 to June 17, 2022 (the “New Notes”). Upon the effectiveness of the Company’s 1,000-1 reverse split, the conversion price adjusted to the lesser of (a) the price in the Qualified Financing or (b) $2.00 per share. The New Notes also provided the investors with Royalty Payments equal to 15% of all net sales generated by the Company with respect to the sale of products or services associated with the 510(k) Notification related to the Company’s autologous cellular therapy (PRP-PBMC) to treat chronic lung disorder. The Royalty Payments are in lieu of the Milestone payments but are perpetual and there is no limit to the aggregate amount of Royalty Payments that may be paid.

 

Due to changes in key provisions of the Tranche 1 Notes, the Company analyzed the before and after cash flows between the (i) fair value of the New Notes and (ii) reacquisition price of the Tranche 1 Notes prior to the (A) change in the maturity date from March 31, 2022 to June 17, 2022, (B) change in the conversion price to the lesser of (x) $2.00 and (y) the price paid in a Qualified Financing, and (C) the fair value of the potential Royalty Payments, to determine whether these changes resulted in a modification or extinguishment of the Tranche 1 Notes.

The Company used a discounted cash flow method with Monte Carlo Simulation to value the Royalty Payments. Future Royalty Payments were estimated based on management’s best estimate of future cash flows under various scenarios which were discounted to present value using a risk-adjusted rate of 65%.

 

Based on the before and after cash flows of each note, the change was considered significantly different. Consequently, the New Notes were accounted for as a debt extinguishment of the Tranche 1 Notes and a new debt issuance of the New Notes. The Company recorded a $2.1 million loss upon extinguishment of debt in the three months ended June 30, 2022, which was comprised of the following:

         
Carrying value of Tranche 1 Notes   $ 3,580,738  
Less: Fair value of New Notes     (4,079,838 )
Less: Fair value of Royalty Payments     (1,697,000 )
Loss on Extinguishment   $ (2,196,100 )

 

The Note Conversion Agreement also provided for the consummation of a Tranche 2 Financing (the “Tranche 2 Notes”) subject to (i) the aggregate principal amount of indebtedness represented by the Tranche 2 Notes being capped at $500,000 and (ii) Tranche 2 Notes’ being an unsecured obligation of the Company and expressly subordinate in all respects to all indebtedness of the Company under the Notes and including language in which the holders of such Tranche 2 Notes acknowledge, confirm and agree to the foregoing subordination terms. Pursuant to the terms of the Note Conversion Agreement, the Investors have agreed not to sell any capital stock of the Company for a period of 12 months following the Qualified Financing.

 

On June 9, 2022, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement for a total of $272,500 with two accredited investors. The notes issued are convertible into common stock at a 35% discount to the lowest trading price in the 20-day period prior to conversion. The notes bear interest at 10% and are due one year from issuance. For the first six months, the Company has the right to prepay the notes at a premium of between 25% and 35% depending on when it is repaid.

 

The Company also issued a promissory note for $100,000 to another accredited investor. This note bears interest at 15% (no matter when repaid) and converts at a discount of 25% of the price of a public offering or a 25% discount to the VWAP of the five (5) days prior to conversion.

 

The embedded features in the Tranche 2 Notes were analyzed under ASC 815 to determine if they required bifurcation as derivative instruments. To be a derivative, one of the criteria is that the embedded component must be net-settleable. While the Company’s Common Stock was traded on an exchange at the time of the transaction, the underlying shares are not readily convertible into cash since there is insufficient daily trading volume for the holders to convert the Tranche 2 Notes into Common Stock without significantly affecting the share price. Accordingly, the embedded derivatives, including the embedded conversion feature, did not meet the definition of a derivative, and therefore, did not require bifurcation from the host instrument. Certain default put provisions, including a default put and default interest, were not considered to be clearly and closely related to the host instrument but the Company concluded that the value of these provisions was de minimus at inception. The Company will reconsider the value of these provisions each reporting period to determine if the value becomes material to the financial statements.

 

The Company chose to early adopt effective January 1, 2021, ASU 2020-06, Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contract in Entity’s Own Equity. Thus, the April 2021 and October 2021 Note Purchase Agreements did not require consideration of a beneficial conversion feature and were accounted for solely as debt on the balance sheets.
