On June 30, 2022, Propanc Biopharma, Inc. (the "Company") reported that entered into a securities purchase agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with 1800 DIAGONAL LENDING LLC ("Diagonal"), pursuant to which Diagonal purchased a convertible promissory note (the "Note") from the Company in the aggregate principal amount of $105,000, such principal and the interest thereon convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at the option of Diagonal (Filing, 8-K, Propanc, JUN 30, 2022, View Source [SID1234616538]). The transaction contemplated by the Purchase Agreement is expected to close on or about July 8, 2022. The Company intends to use the net proceeds ($101,250) from the Note for general working capital purposes.
The maturity date of the Note is June 30, 2023 (the "Maturity Date"). The Note shall bear interest at a rate of 8% per annum, which interest may be paid by the Company to Diagonal in shares of common stock, but shall not be payable until the Note becomes payable, whether at the Maturity Date or upon acceleration or by prepayment, as described below. Diagonal has the option to convert all or any amount of the principal face amount of the Note, beginning on the date which is one hundred eighty (180) days following the date of this Note and ending on the later of: (i) the Maturity Date and (ii) the date of payment of the Default Amount (as defined below), each in respect of the remaining outstanding amount of this Note, to convert all or any part of the outstanding and unpaid amount of this Note into common stock at the then-applicable conversion price. The conversion price for the Note shall be equal to the Variable Conversion Price (as defined herein) (subject to equitable adjustments for stock splits, stock dividends or rights offerings by the Company relating to the Company’s securities or the securities of any subsidiary of the Company, combinations, recapitalization, reclassifications, extraordinary distributions and similar events). The "Variable Conversion Price" shall mean 65% multiplied by the Market Price (as defined herein) (representing a discount rate of 35%). "Market Price" means the average of the lowest three (3) Trading Prices (as defined below) for the common stock during the ten (10) Trading Day period ending on the latest complete Trading Day (as defined below) prior to the conversion date. "Trading Price" means, for any security as of any date, the closing bid price on the OTCQB, OTCQX, Pink Sheets electronic quotation system or applicable trading market (the "OTC") as reported by a reliable reporting service designated by Diagonal (i.e. Bloomberg) or, if the OTC is not the principal trading market for such security, the closing bid price of such security on the principal securities exchange or trading market where such security is listed or traded or, if no closing bid price of such security is available in any of the foregoing manners, the average of the closing bid prices of any market makers for such security that are listed in the "pink sheets". "Trading Day" shall mean any day on which the common stock is tradable for any period on the OTC, or on the principal securities exchange or other securities market on which the common stock is then being traded. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Diagonal shall be restricted from effecting a conversion if such conversion, along with other shares of the Company’s common stock beneficially owned by Diagonal and its affiliates, exceeds 4.99% of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock.
The Note may be prepaid until 180 days from the issuance date. If the Note is prepaid within 60 days of the issuance date, then the prepayment premium shall be 110% of the face amount plus any accrued interest, if prepaid after 60 days from the issuance date, but less than 91 days from the issuance date, then the prepayment premium shall be 115% of the face amount plus any accrued interest, if prepaid after 90 days from the issuance date, but less than 121 days from the issuance date, then the prepayment premium shall be 120% of the face amount plus any accrued interest, if prepaid after 120 days from the issuance date, but less than 151 days from the issuance date, then the prepayment premium shall be 125% of the face amount plus any accrued interest, and if prepaid after 150 days from the issuance date, but less than 181 days from the issuance date, then the prepayment premium shall be 129% of the face amount plus any accrued interest. So long as the Note is outstanding, the Company covenants not to, without prior written consent from Diagonal, sell, lease or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its assets outside the ordinary course of business which would render the Company a "shell company" as such term is defined in Rule 144.
Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company paid Diagonal’s legal fees and due diligence expenses in the aggregate amount of $3,750.
Other than as described above, the Note contains certain events of default, including failure to timely issue shares upon receipt of a notice of conversion, as well as certain customary events of default, including, among others, breach of covenants, representations or warranties, insolvency, bankruptcy, liquidation and failure by the Company to pay the principal and interest due under the Note. Additional events of default shall include, among others: (i) failure to reserve at least five times the number of shares issuable upon full conversion of the Note; (ii) bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or liquidation proceedings or other proceedings, voluntary or involuntary, for relief under any bankruptcy law or any law for the relief of debtors shall be instituted by or against the Company or any subsidiary of the Company; provided, that in the event such event is triggered without the Company’s consent, the Company shall have sixty (60) days after such event is triggered to discharge such event, (iii) the Company’s failure to maintain the listing of the common stock on at least one of the OTC markets (which specifically includes the quotation platforms maintained by the OTC Markets Group) or an equivalent replacement exchange, the Nasdaq National Market, the Nasdaq Small Cap Market, the New York Stock Exchange, or the American Stock Exchange, (iv) The restatement of any financial statements filed by the Company with the SEC at any time after 180 days after the issuance date for any date or period until this note is no longer outstanding, if the result of such restatement would, by comparison to the un-restated financial statement, have reasonably constituted a material adverse effect on the rights of Diagonal with respect to this note or the Purchase Agreement, and (v) the Company’s failure to comply with its reporting requirements of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"), and/or the Company ceases to be subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act.
In the event that the Company fails to deliver to Diagonal shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of principal or interest under the Note within three business days of a notice of conversion by Diagonal, the Company shall incur a penalty of $1,000 per day, provided, however, that such fee shall not be due if the failure to deliver the shares is a result of a third party such as the transfer agent.
Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of certain events of default, the Note will become immediately due and payable and the Company will pay Diagonal in full satisfaction of its obligations in the Note an amount equal to 150% of an amount equal to the then outstanding principal amount of the Note plus any interest accrued upon such event of default or prior events of default (the "Default Amount").
The Note was issued, and any shares to be issued pursuant to any conversion of the Note shall be issued in a private placement in reliance upon an exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and/or Regulation D promulgated thereunder.
