On February 2, 2018, BioHiTech Global, Inc. (the “Registrant”) and several of the Registrant’s wholly-owned subsidiaries entered into and consummated a Note Purchase and Security Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Michaelson Capital Special Finance Fund II, L.P. (“MCSFF”) to issue a senior secured term promissory note in the principal amount of Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) (the “Note”). The Note is not convertible and accrues interest at the rate of 10.25% per annum. The Note is to be repaid in eight, equal, quarterly installments of Six Hundred Twenty Five Thousand Dollars ($625,000) commencing on March 15, 2021 and ending February 2, 2023 (the “Maturity Date”). Additionally, the Note is secured by a general security interest in all of the Registrant’s assets as well all of the assets of the Registrant’s subsidiaries. Further, the Registrant’s Chief Executive Officer, Frank E. Celli (“Celli”), guaranteed a portion of the Registrant’s obligations to MCSFF. In connection with the issuance of the Note, the Registrant issued MCSFF 320,000 shares of the Registrant’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share. The Purchase Agreement contains customary provisions, including representations, warranties, indemnities and “piggyback” registration rights, and closed upon the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
On February 2, 2018, in connection with and as a condition precedent to the closing of the Note, the Registrant entered into a Securities Exchange and Note Purchase Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with Celli, whereby Celli exchanged $4,500,000 in a note receivable and $544,0000 in advances made to the Registrant for $4,000,000 of the Registrant’s Series C Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 (the Series C Preferred Stock”) and a junior promissory note (the “Junior Note”). The Junior Note, which is subordinated to the MCSFF Note, is not convertible, accrues interest at the rate of 10.25% per annum and matures on February 2, 2024. The Series C Preferred Stock has a stated value of $10.00 per share and is convertible, at the holder’s option, into the Registrant’s common stock, par $0.0001, at a conversion price of $4.75 per share. The Series C Preferred Stock is non-redeemable, has voting rights together with the common stock, par $0.0001, at the rate of 4 votes to 1 and accrues dividends at 10.25% of the stated value outstanding. In connection with this transaction, the Registrant also issued Celli warrants to purchase 421,053 shares of Common Stock, exercisable at $5.50 per share which expire in five (5) years.
On February 6, 2018, the Registrant issued a press release announcing the transaction with MCSFF. A copy of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
