The information set forth in Item 2.03 is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.
|Item 2.03||Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant|
On November 27, 2017, an existing investor (the “Lender”) of Bionik Laboratories Corp. (the “Company”) subscribed for a convertible promissory note (the “Note”) in substantially the form attached as Exhibit 10.2 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 20, 2017 (the “Previous 8-K”), and loaned to the Company $600,000 (the “Loan”). The Loan represents an additional tranche borrowed to an up to $3,000,000 convertible note and warrant offering (increased from $2,000,000) (the “Aggregate Loan”), of which an aggregate of $2,200,000 had been advanced prior to the tranche, for total borrowed principal through November 27, 2017 of approximately $2,800,000. The Lender is an affiliate of Remi Gaston Dreyfus, a director of the Company.
On November 27, 2017, the Lender loaned an additional $200,000 to the Company (the “Additional Loan”), unrelated to the Aggregate Loan, on terms yet to be determined. The Company intends to file a Current Report on Form 8-K to disclose the terms of the Additional Loan once such terms are agreed upon by the Lender and the Company.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Loan and the Additional Loan for the Company’s working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Note bears interest at a fixed rate of 3% per month, beginning on the Issue Date (as defined in the Note). Interest will be computed based on a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months and will be payable, along with the principal amount, on the earlier of: (a) March 31, 2018 and (b) the consummation of a Qualified Financing (as defined below)(the “Maturity Date”).
The Note will be convertible into equity of the Company upon the following events on the following terms:
|·||Upon the consummation of the next equity or equity-linked round of financing of the Company in whatever form or type that raises in one or more tranches aggregate gross proceeds of US$7,000,000 or more, less the aggregate amount raised by the Company from the Aggregate Loan and certain convertible promissory notes, as amended, in an aggregate principal amount of $2,000,000 issued by the Company to certain investors in December 2016 – March 2017 (the “Qualified Financing”), without any action on the part of the holder of the Note, the (i) outstanding principal, (ii) accrued and unpaid interest under the Note and (iii) the Premium (as defined in the Note) will be converted into New Round Stock (as defined in the Note) based upon the lesser of (A) the lowest issuance (or conversion) price of (or into) New Round Stock in case there is more than one tranche of New Round Stock or (B) $0.25.|
|·||Upon a Change of Control transaction (as defined in the Note) prior to a Qualified Financing, the (a) outstanding principal, (b) accrued and unpaid interest under the Note and (c) the Premium would, at the election of the holder of a majority of the outstanding principal of the notes issues with respect to the Aggregate Loan, be either (i) payable upon demand as of the closing of such Change of Control transaction or (ii) convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock immediately prior to such Change of Control transaction at a price per share equal to the lesser of (A) the VWAP (as defined in the Note), or (B) the per share consideration to be received by the holders of the Company’s common stock in such Change of Control transaction.|
In the event the Company is unsuccessful in consummating a Qualified Financing by March 31, 2018, the Company shall promptly grant to the holder of the Note a security interest on all of the Company’s assets and shall file a UCC-1 Financing Statement to perfect such security interest, and shall execute and deliver such other documents, agreements and instruments that such holder reasonably requires to so grant and perfect the security interest in the Company’s assets; provided, however, that such security interest shall be subject to an intercreditor agreement or other similar agreement, in customary form, if and to the extent the Company enters into one or more secured loans with third party lenders from the Issue Date through the Maturity Date, providing for pari passu rights among the holder of the Note and such other third parties.
The Note contains customary events of default, which, if uncured, entitle the holder of the Note to accelerate the due date of the unpaid principal amount of, and all accrued and unpaid interest on, its Note.
In addition, the Lender was granted common stock purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) exercisable for five years to purchase a number of shares of common stock of the Company equal to 20% of the aggregate principal amount of the notes evidencing the Lender’s Aggregate Loan divided by the Exercise Price (as defined below), at an exercise price per share based on the lesser of (a) the lowest issuance (or conversion) price of New Round Stock (as defined in the Warrants) in case there is more than one tranche of New Round Stock in a Qualified Financing (as defined in the Warrants), or (b) the average VWAP (as defined in the Warrants) for the 60 Trading Days immediately prior to January 30, 2018, or (c) $0.25, in all cases subject to adjustment as provided in the Warrants (the “Exercise Price”).
The foregoing is a brief description of the terms of the subscription of the Note and the Warrants and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of Subscription Agreement, a copy of which is included as Exhibit 10.1 to the Previous 8-K, the form of Note, a copy of which is included as Exhibit 10.2 to the Previous 8-K and the form of Warrant, a copy of which is included as Exhibit 10.3 to the Previous 8-K, all of which are incorporated herein by reference.
|Item 3.02||Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.|
