Securities Purchase Agreement and Convertible Promissory Note

On September 26, 2016 Trident Brands, Inc. (“we”, “us”, “our” the “Company”) entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Agreement”) with LPF (MCTECH) Investment Corp. (“LPF”), to which, in consideration of proceeds of $4,100,000, we issued a secured convertible promissory note in the amount of $4,100,000. We originally disclosed the Agreement in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed October 4, 2016.

to the Agreement, LPF also agreed to make, from time to time after January 1, 2017, additional investments at the Company’s request of up to $5,900,000 ($10,000,000 in the aggregate). The Agreement was subsequently assigned to Fengate Trident LP (“Fengate”). As at May 16, 2018, the Company had received an aggregate of $10,000,000 from the issuance of convertible promissory notes to the Agreement.

On November 30, 2018 the Company and Fengate entered into an Securities Purchase Amendment Agreement to which the Company has agreed to issue to Fengate an additional convertible promissory (the “2018 Convertible Note”) of up to $10,000,000, subject to certain terms and conditions. Each portion of the principal amount advanced to the 2018 Convertible Note will bear interest at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum and will be payable monthly in arrears to Fengate. Outstanding principal and interest will continue to be secured by the general security agreement dated September 26, 2016, which forms a part of the Agreement. The holder of the note may also elect from time to time to convert all or a portion of the outstanding principal and interest into common shares of the Company at a 25% discount to the average closing price of the common shares during the 10 trading days immediately prior to the applicable conversion date. The 2018 Convertible Note will mature on November 30, 2019, provided that Fengate may unilaterally postpone the maturity date to May 31, 2020.

Funding and issuance of the 2018 Convertible Note will be subject to the following material terms and conditions:

On November 30, 2018, Fengate will fund, and the Company will issue, the first tranche of the 2018 Convertible Note in the amount of $3,400,780;

On February 28, 2019, Fengate will fund and the Company will issue a second tranche of the 2018 Convertible Note in the amount of $2,804,187 provided that: (i) the Company’s revenues for the first quarter of 2019 are not less than US$855,432, as evidenced by the Company’s financial statements prepared for the first quarter of 2019 in accordance with GAAP and the Company’s historical accounting practices; and (ii) the Company has implemented all or substantially all of the recommendations for performance improvements to the Company made by any independent third party consultancy engaged by the Company for such purpose (a “Consultant”) to the Purchaser’s reasonable satisfaction; and

The remainder of the principal amount of the 2018 Convertible Note (being US$3,795,033) will be funded and issued, at the election of the Fengate, in one or more tranches from time to time during the term of the Agreement within 30 days following written request from the Company, with such request providing details of the use of funds and investment case to the reasonable satisfaction of Fengate.

We issued the $3,400,780 tranche of the 2018 Convertible Note to (1) non-US person (as that term is defined in Regulation S of the Securities Act of 1933), in an offshore transaction relying on Regulation S of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the secured convertible note for general working capital purposes including, without limitation, product development, inventory, and selling expenses.
