Windtree Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:WINT) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive AgreementItem 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Effective as of December 5, 2018 (the “Effective Date”), Windtree Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Loan Agreement (“Loan Agreement”) with LPH II Investments Ltd., a Cayman Islands company organized and existing under the laws of Cayman Islands (“LPH II”), and an affiliate of Lee’s Pharmaceutical Holdings Limited. Under the Loan Agreement, LPH II agreed to lend the Company $600,000 (the “Loan”) to support the Company’s operations while the Company seeks to complete a strategic transaction (as defined in the Loan Agreement, the “Strategic Transaction”). The Loan, which was funded in a single installment by wire transfer on December 5, 2018, will accrue interest at a rate of 6% per annum and will mature upon the earlier of (i) the closing date for the Strategic Transaction on terms defined in the Loan Agreement, or (ii) March 31, 2019. If the Company is unable to complete the Strategic Transaction for any reason, based on the Company’s resources currently available to it, it likely will have insufficient resources to repay the Loan and may be forced to curtail some or all of its activities, and, ultimately, may be compelled to cease operations.
The Company agreed to secure its obligations with respect to the Loan under a previously-executed Security Agreement between the Company and LPH Investments Ltd (“LPH”) dated March 1, 2018 (the “Security Agreement”), to which the Company granted to LPH a security interest in substantially all of the Company’s assets. Effective as of December 5, 2018, LPH assigned to LPH II all of its right, title, benefit and interest in the Company’s indebtedness to LPH totaling an aggregate $5,560,000, as evidenced by various Loan Agreements, and the Security Agreement.
