On May 3, 2019, ADMA Biologics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company), announced that it drew down the full $27.5 million term loan (the Second Tranche) from its existing credit facility with Perceptive Credit Holdings II, LP, as the Companys lender and administrative agent (the Lender). Additionally, on May 3, 2019 (the Amendment Date), in connection with the Companys draw-down of the Second Tranche, the Company announced that it entered into an amendment (the Amendment) to that certain Credit Agreement and Guaranty (the Credit Agreement), dated as of February 11, 2019 (the Agreement Date), with ADMA Plasma Biologics, Inc. (ADMA Plasma Biologics), ADMA Bio Centers Georgia Inc. (ADMA Bio Centers), ADMA BioManufacturing, LLC (ADMA BioManufacturing and together with ADMA Plasma Biologics and ADMA Bio Centers, the Subsidiary Guarantors) and the Lender.

The Amendment provides for an additional term loan in the principal amount of up to $12.5 million (the Third Tranche), to be drawn-down at the Companys sole option and on the same terms as the existing term loans described in the Credit Agreement, which Third Tranche is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including, but not limited to, the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations approval of the Prior Approval Supplement submission for BIVIGAM (Intravenous Immune Globulin [Human], 10%) drug substance and no Material Adverse Changes (as defined therein) having occurred since December 31, 2018; provided, that the Third Tranche may not be drawn-down later than March 31, 2020. The Credit Agreement, together with the Amendment, now provides for a senior secured term loan facility with an aggregate principal amount of up to $85.0 million (collectively, the Credit Facility), comprised of (i) an initial term loan made on the Agreement Date with an outstanding principal amount of $45.0 million, (ii) the Second Tranche made on the Amendment Date with an outstanding principal amount of $27.5 million, as evidenced by the Companys issuance of a promissory note (the Note) in favor of the Lender on the Amendment Date, and (iii) the Third Tranche with an available principal amount of up to $12.5 million. The Credit Facility has a maturity date of March 1, 2022, subject to acceleration to the Credit Agreement, including upon an Event of Default (as defined in the Credit Agreement). Prior to maturity, there will be no scheduled principal payments on the outstanding term loans made under the Credit Facility.

A copy of the press release announcing the Companys draw-down of the Second Tranche and entry into the Amendment is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.

Fees and Expenses

On the Amendment Date, the Company used certain proceeds of the Second Tranche to pay certain fees and expenses incurred in connection with the Amendment.

Interest Rate

As previously disclosed at the time of entry into the Credit Agreement, borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at a rate per annum equal to 7.5% (the Applicable Margin) 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 Applicable Margin shall automatically increase by an additional 400 basis points. On the last day of each month during the term of the Credit Facility, the Company will pay accrued interest to the Lender.


As consideration for the Amendment, the Company has issued, on the Amendment Date, a Warrant to Purchase Stock to the Lender (the Warrant). The Warrant has an exercise price equal to $4.64, which is equal to the trailing 10-day volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the Companys common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the Common Stock), on the business day immediately prior to the Amendment Date. The Warrant is exercisable for 250,000 shares of Common Stock and has an expiration date of May 3, 2029. The Lender 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 of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act)), and the Company issued the Warrant in reliance upon an exemption from registration contained in Section 4(2) under the Securities Act. The Warrant and the shares of Common Stock issuable thereunder may not be offered, sold, pledged or otherwise transferred in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements under the Securities Act.
