On February 11, 2019, (the “Perceptive Closing Date”), the Company and all of its subsidiaries entered into a Credit Agreement and Guaranty (the “Perceptive Credit Agreement”) with Perceptive Credit Holdings II, LP, as the lender and administrative agent (“Perceptive”). The Perceptive Credit Agreement provides for a senior secured term loan facility in a principal amount of up to $72.5 million (the “Perceptive Credit Facility”), comprised of (i) a term loan made on the Perceptive Closing Date in the principal amount of $45.0 million, as evidenced by the Company’s issuance of a promissory note (the “Perceptive Tranche I Note”) in favor of Perceptive on the Perceptive Closing Date (the “Perceptive Tranche I Loan”), and (ii) an additional term loan in the principal amount of up to $27.5 million, but no less than $10.0 million (the “Perceptive Tranche II Loan” and, together with the Perceptive Tranche I Loan, the “Initial Perceptive Loans”), which Perceptive Tranche II Loan was made on in full on May 3, 2019 (see Note 14). The Perceptive Credit Facility has a maturity date of March 1, 2022 (the “Maturity Date”), subject to acceleration pursuant to the Perceptive Credit Agreement, including upon an Event of Default (as defined in the Perceptive Credit Agreement).

 

On the Perceptive Closing Date, the Company used $30.0 million of the Perceptive Tranche I Loan to terminate and pay in full all of the outstanding obligations under its previously existing credit agreement with Marathon Healthcare Finance Fund, L.P. (“Marathon”) (the “Marathon Credit Facility”). The Company also (i) used $2.8 million of the Perceptive Tranche I Loan to pay a deferred facility fee to Marathon, (ii) used $6.5 million of the Perceptive Tranche I Loan to pay a prepayment penalty to Marathon, (iii) used $0.7 million of the Perceptive Tranche I Loan to pay outstanding accrued interest to Marathon, and (iv) used proceeds of the Perceptive Tranche I Loan to pay certain fees and expenses incurred in connection with the Perceptive Credit Facility of approximately $1.5 million. In addition, Marathon released $4.0 million of cash that was held in a debt service reserve account per the terms of the Marathon Credit Facility, which was reflected as restricted cash in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2018, to the Company.

 

As a result of the Company’s entering into the Perceptive Credit Agreement and terminating the Marathon Credit Facility, the Company recognized a loss on the extinguishment of debt in the amount of approximately $10.0 million, comprised of the $6.5 million prepayment penalty and the write-off of unamortized debt discount related to the Marathon Credit Facility in the amount of $3.5 million.

 

Borrowings under the Perceptive Credit Agreement bear interest at a rate per annum equal to 7.5% plus the greater of (i) one-month LIBOR and (ii) 3.5%; provided, however, that upon, and during the continuance of, an Event of Default, the interest rate will automatically increase by an additional 400 basis points. On the last day of each month during the term of the Perceptive Credit Facility, the Company will pay accrued interest to Perceptive. The rate of interest in effect as of the Perceptive Closing Date and at March 31, 2019 was 11.0%.

 

On the Maturity Date, the Company will pay Perceptive the entire outstanding principal amount underlying the Perceptive Loans and any accrued and unpaid interest thereon. Prior to the Maturity Date, there will be no scheduled principal payments on the Perceptive Loans. The Company may prepay outstanding principal on the Perceptive Loans at any time and from time to time upon three business days’ prior written notice, subject to the payment to Perceptive of, (A) any accrued but unpaid interest on the prepaid principal amount plus (B) a redemption premium amount equal to (i) 5.0% of the prepaid principal amount, if prepaid on or prior to the first anniversary of the Perceptive Closing Date, (ii) 4.0% of the prepaid principal amount, if prepaid after the first anniversary of the Perceptive Closing Date and on or prior to the second anniversary of the Perceptive Closing Date, or (iii) 3.0% of the prepaid principal amount, if prepaid after the second anniversary of the Perceptive Closing Date and on or prior to the third anniversary of the Perceptive Closing Date.

 

All of the Company’s obligations under the Perceptive Credit Agreement are secured by a first-priority lien and security interest in substantially all of the Company’s tangible and intangible assets, including intellectual property and all of the equity interests in the Company’s subsidiaries. The Perceptive Credit Agreement contains certain representations and warranties, affirmative covenants, negative covenants and conditions that are customarily required for similar financings. The negative covenants restrict or limit the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries to, among other things and subject to certain exceptions contained in the Perceptive Credit Agreement, incur new indebtedness; create liens on assets; engage in certain fundamental corporate changes, such as mergers or acquisitions, or changes to the Company’s or subsidiaries’ business activities; make certain Investments or Restricted Payments (each as defined in the Perceptive Credit Agreement); change its fiscal year; pay dividends; repay other certain indebtedness; engage in certain affiliate transactions; or enter into, amend or terminate any other agreements that has the impact of restricting the Company’s ability to make loan repayments under the Perceptive Credit Agreement. In addition, the Company must (i) at all times prior to the Maturity Date maintain a minimum cash balance of $3.0 million; and (ii) as of the last day of each fiscal quarter commencing with the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2019, receive revenue for the trailing 12-month period in amounts set forth in the Perceptive Credit Agreement, which range from $7.0 million for the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2019 to $55.0 million for the fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2021.

 

As consideration for the Perceptive Credit Agreement, the Company issued to Perceptive, on the Perceptive Closing Date, a warrant to purchase 1,360,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Perceptive Warrant”). The Perceptive Warrant has an exercise price equal to $3.28 per share, which is equal to the trailing 10-day VWAP of the Company’s common stock on the business day immediately prior to the Perceptive Closing Date multiplied by 1.15. The Perceptive Warrant was valued by the Company at $2.7 million as of the Perceptive Closing Date and has an expiration date of February 11, 2029. Perceptive represented to the Company, among other things, that it was an “accredited investor” (as such term is defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act) and the Company issued the Perceptive Warrant in reliance upon an exemption from registration contained in Section 4(2) under the Securities Act. The Perceptive Warrant and the shares of common stock issuable thereunder may not be offered, sold, pledged or otherwise transferred in the U.S. absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements under the Securities Act.

 

As a result of the fees paid to Perceptive and the value of the Perceptive Warrant, the Company recognized a discount on the Perceptive Initial Note in the amount of $4.3 million.  The Company records debt discount as a reduction to the face amount of the debt, and the debt discount is amortized as interest expense over the life of the debt using the interest method. Based on the fair value of the Perceptive Warrant and the aggregate amount of fees and expenses associated with obtaining the Perceptive Credit Facility, the effective interest rate on the Perceptive Initial Note as of the Perceptive Closing Date was approximately 14.7%.
