("APC") to amend the note purchase agreement dated May 30, 2016, as amended August 31, 2016, November 8, 2016 and August 30, 2017 (the "NPA"), by: (i) removing AGMC and ACEI as parties to the NPA and thereby releasing the Company from any obligations of liabilities under the NPA, (ii) extending the maturity date for any issued notes under the NPA to December 31, 2019 and (iii) AGMF and APC agreeing to maintain the credit facility open and, subject to the conditions set forth in the NPA as amended by the Amending Agreement, purchase from the Company additional notes (the "Additional Notes") up to an aggregate of $1,000,000.00 in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in the NPA (with the security documents contemplated by the NPA being replaced with security agreements acceptable to the parties at the time AGMF and APC purchase Additional Notes).
The Additional Notes, if issued, will be due and payable on December 31, 2019, and will bear an interest rate of 10% per annum calculated and payable monthly. At the option of AGMF and APC, the Additional Notes will be convertible into common shares of the Company at a conversion price of $0.45 per share, subject to adjustment as provided in the NPA. If, at any time following four months after the issue date of any Additional Note, the closing price per common share of the Company is at least $0.75 per share for at least 30 consecutive days with a daily volume of more than 400,000 common shares of the Company, the Company may force the conversion of one half of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Additional Notes.
After the first anniversary of the issuance of the Additional Notes, the Company, at its option, may prepay, without notice or penalty, the principal amount of all of the outstanding Additional Notes in full or in part, together with any accrued and unpaid interest.
Prior to entering into the Amending Agreement, the Company repaid $475,000 out of $485,000 owed to ACEI, AGMC, AGMF and APC pursuant to the NPA and all notes issued to them under the NPA.
As consideration for extending the maturity date and maintaining the credit facility open under the Amending Agreement, the Company issued 562,500 common share purchase warrants of the Company to AGMF and 187,500 common share purchase warrants of the Company to APC, each of which common share purchase warrants is exercisable into one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.25 per share until June 29, 2020.
