5. NOTES PAYABLE TO SIGNIFICANT STOCKHOLDERS
As of February 13, 2012, all Notes and accrued interest and Preferred Stock have been converted into common stock or repaid in full.
Prior to February 13, 2012, the Company has issued senior secured convertible promissory notes (the Notes) to significant stockholders pursuant to the terms of Note Purchase Agreements. The outstanding principal and interest under the notes are due and payable upon the earliest to occur of: (i) March 31, 2012 (as amended); (ii) the date on which the Company consummates a preferred stock financing in which the gross proceeds to the Company total at least $10,000,000 (Qualified Financing as defined in the Notes); and (iii) the occurrence of an Event of Default (as defined in the Notes), the first of these three events to occur referred to as the Maturity Date. Interest accrues on the outstanding principal at the stated rate and is payable on the Maturity Date.
If all or any of the principal and accrued interest thereon remains outstanding prior to the date of a Qualified Financing, those amounts shall automatically convert into shares of the Companys preferred stock at the lower of (a) the price per share paid by investors in the Qualified Financing or (b) the stated Conversion Price.
Any principal and accrued interest thereon that remains outstanding will convert into preferred shares at the stated conversion price if immediately prior to the Maturity Date, a Qualified Financing has not occurred and the Company does not have sufficient cash on hand to repay the outstanding balance in full. The Series A-1 and A-2 Preferred Stock shall have the same rights and privileges as the Companys Series A Preferred Stock and shall be senior to the Series A Preferred Stock in liquidation preference.
If the principal amounts due under these notes are repaid on the Maturity Date, the payees have the option to convert all of the accrued interest into shares of Series A Preferred Stock determined by dividing the interest by the Conversion Price.
In the Event of a Default, the interest rate stated on the notes shall be increased by three percent (3%) per annum. The Notes are collateralized by all of the assets of the Company.
