Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

On October 28, 2022, HotPlay (Thailand) Company Limited (“HotPlay”), a wholly owned subsidiary of NextPlay Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a loan agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with Tree Roots Entertainment Group Company Limited (“Tree Roots”), pursuant to which Tree Roots agreed to loan HotPlay THB 15,500,000 (approximately USD $400,000) (the “Bridge Loan”). The Bridge Loan incurs interest at a rate of 15% per annum and is due and payable in full on November 11, 2022 (the “Maturity Date”). Additionally, as partial consideration for the Bridge Loan, the Company agreed to repay convertible notes previously entered into with Tree Roots, in the aggregate amount of TBH 10,598,356 (approximately USD $280,000), on the Maturity Date.

 

The Bridge Loan is secured by 2,266,082 shares (the “Guarantee Shares”) of Company common stock beneficially owned by Nithinan Boonyawattanapisut, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. In the event that HotPlay is unable to repay the Bridge Loan in full on the Maturity Date, Ms. Boonyawattanapisut may elect to repay the Bridge Loan through the transfer of the Guarantee Shares to Tree Roots, in which case the Loan Agreement will be assigned to Ms. Boonyawattanapisut or her designee and she or her designee will be entitled to all rights provided to Tree Roots under the Loan Agreement. In the event that Ms. Boonyawattanapisut transfers any Guarantee Shares to Tree Roots, the Company shall be obligated to issue Ms. Boonyawattanapisut the same number of shares of common stock as replacement shares (“Replacement Shares”). If the Replacement Shares are not issued six months from the date of the Loan Agreement, then the interest rate on the Bridge Loan shall increase to 17% per annum.

 

Tree Roots is a significant shareholder of the Company; as a result, the Bridge Loan constitutes a related party transaction. The Bridge Loan was considered and approved in advance by the Company’s board of directors and audit committee.

 

The foregoing description of the Loan Agreement does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of such Loan Agreement, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s next periodic report.

 

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

 

The information set forth in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K regarding the Bridge Loan is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
