TAURIGA SCIENCES, INC. (OTCMKTS:TAUG) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On September 13, 2019, Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB stock symbol: TAUG, the “Company”) entered into a one year 8% $100,000 Convertible Note with Odyssey Funding, LLC (“Investor”) to the terms of a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Odyssey Note”). The Odyssey Note has a maturity date of September 13, 2020 and carried a $5,000 original issue discount (such that $95,000 was funded to the Company at closing). The Investor is entitled, at its option, at any time after cash payment, to convert all or any amount of the principal face amount of the Odyssey Note then outstanding into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price for each share of common stock equal to 64% of the lowest daily volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the common stock as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets exchange, which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the common stock may be traded in the future, for the fifteen (15) prior trading days including the day upon which a notice of conversion is received by the Company or its transfer agent. Such conversion shall be effectuated by the Company delivering the shares of common stock to the Investor within 3 business days of receipt by the Company of the notice of conversion. Accrued but unpaid interest shall be subject to conversion. To the extent the conversion price of the Company’s common stock closes below the par value per share, the Company will take all steps necessary to solicit the consent of the stockholders to reduce the par value to the lowest value possible under law. The Company agrees to honor all conversions submitted pending this increase. In the event the Company experiences a DTC “Chill” on its shares, the conversion price shall be decreased to 54% instead of 64% while that “Chill” is in effect. In no event shall the Investor be allowed to effect a conversion if such conversion, along with all other shares of Company Common Stock beneficially owned by the Investor and its affiliates would exceed 4.99% of the outstanding shares of the Common Stock of the Company (which may be increased up to 9.9% upon 60 days’ prior written notice by the Investor. During the first 180 calendar days that the Odyssey Note is in effect, the Company may redeem the Odyssey Note by paying to the Investor an amount as follows: (i) if the redemption is within the first 60 days of the issuance date, then for an amount equal to 125% of the unpaid principal amount of this Note along with any interest that has accrued during that period, (ii) if the redemption is after the 61st day, but by the 120th day of the issuance date, then for an amount equal to 135% of the unpaid principal amount of this Note along with any accrued interest, and (iii) if the redemption is after the 120th day, but less than the 180th day of the issuance date, then for an amount equal to 140% of the unpaid principal amount of this Note along with any accrued interest. The Company may not redeem the Odyssey Note after the 180th day from entering into it. Upon an event of default, among other default provisions set forth in the Odyssey Note, (i) interest shall accrue at a default interest rate of 24% per annum or, if such rate is usurious or not permitted by current law, then at the highest rate of interest permitted by law. (ii) if the Company shall fail to deliver to the Investor the shares of common stock without restrictive legend (when permissible in accordance with applicable law) within three (3) business days of its receipt of a notice of conversion, then the Company shall pay a penalty of $250 per day the shares are not issued beginning on the 4th day after the conversion notice was delivered to the Company (which shall be increased to $500 per day beginning on the 10th day); (iii) if the Company’s stock ceases to be listed on an exchange, its stock is suspended from trading for more than 10 consecutive trading days or the Company ceases to file its reports with the SEC under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, then the outstanding principal due under the Odyssey Note shall increase by 50%; or (iv) if the Odyssey Note is not paid at maturity, the outstanding principal due under this Note shall increase by 10%.
In connection with the Odyssey Note, the Company issued irrevocable transfer agent instructions reserving 22,727,000 shares (the “Share Reserve”) of its Common Stock for conversions under this Note. The Investor shall have the right to periodically request that the number of reserved shares be increased so that the number of reserved shares at least equals four hundred percent of the number of shares of Company common stock issuable upon conversion of the Note so long as there are sufficient authorized and unissued shares of the Company not otherwise reserved available to do so. Upon full conversion or repayment of this Odyssey Note, any shares remaining in the Share Reserve shall be cancelled.
