On January 31, 2022, Oncotelic Therapeutics, Inc. (the "Company") reported that entered into an Unsecured Convertible Note Purchase Agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with Golden Mountain Partners, LLC (the ("Holder"), pursuant to which the Company issued a convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $0.5 million (the "Note"), which Note is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share ("Common Stock") (Filing, 8-K, Mateon Therapeutics, JAN 31, 2022, View Source [SID1234607613]). The Note and Purchase Agreement are both part of a series of a cumulative funding of upto $1.5 million in three equal monthly instalments. The Note was entered into as continuation of the relationship between the Company and the Holder.
The Purchase Agreements and the Notes contain identical terms to the securities purchase agreements (and promissory notes issued thereunder), to Golden Mountain Partners, LLC on October 25, 2021. The Prior Issuances were previously reported on our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on October 28, 2021.
The Note carries an interest rate of 2% per annum and matures on the earlier of (a) the one-year anniversary of the date of the Agreement, or (b) the acceleration of the maturity of the Note by Holder upon occurrence of an Event of Default (as defined below). The Note contains a voluntary conversion mechanism whereby the Holder may convert the outstanding principal and accrued interest under the terms of the Note into shares of Common Stock (the "Conversion Shares"), at the consolidated closing bid price of the Company’s Common Stock on the applicable OTC Market as of the date the Company receives a Notice of Conversion (as defined in the Note) from Holder. Prepayment of the Note may be made at any time by payment of the outstanding principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest. The Note contains customary events of default (each an "Event of Default"). If an Event of Default occurs, at the Holder’s election, the outstanding principal amount of the Note, plus accrued but unpaid interest, will become immediately due and payable in cash. The Purchase Agreement requires the Company to use of the proceeds received under the Note to support payroll.
The issuance of the Note is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended ("Securities Act"), in reliance on the exemptions provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act as provided in Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder. The shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Note have not been registered under the Securities Act or any other applicable securities laws, and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.
The foregoing descriptions of the Purchase Agreement and the Note are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such agreements, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, and each of which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference.
