Although Lender believes that its loan process provides expedited turnaround time and its underwriting process provides greater likelihood of approval of your loan, this loan may be a higher cost loan than loans that may be available through other lenders. You should fully consider all costs and fees associated with this loan and compare your available alternatives to this loan. You are encouraged to engage appropriate advisors to the extent you believe necessary to evaluate the terms of this loan.

4. LOAN FOR SPECIFIC PURPOSES ONLY. The proceeds of the requested Loan may solely be used for the specific purposes as set forth in the Use of Proceeds Certification contained in Section 49 below, and not for any other purposes.  In addition, the Loan will not be used for personal, family or household purposes. Borrower understands that Borrower's agreement not to use the Loan proceeds for personal, family or household purposes means that certain important duties imposed upon entities making loans for consumer/personal purposes, and certain important rights conferred upon consumers, pursuant to federal or state law will not apply to the Loan or the Agreement. Borrower also understands that Lender will be unable to confirm whether the use of the Loan conforms to this section. Borrower agrees that a breach by Borrower of the provisions of this section will not affect Lender's right to (i) enforce Borrower's promise to pay for all amounts owed under this Agreement, regardless of the purpose for which the Loan is in fact obtained or (ii) use any remedy legally available to Lender, even if that remedy would not have been available had the Loan been made for consumer purposes.

 

5. DISBURSEMENT OF LOAN PROCEEDS AND MAINTENANCE OF BORROWER'S BANK ACCOUNT. If Borrower applied and was approved for a Loan, Borrowers Loan will be disbursed upon approval as provided in the accompanying Authorization Agreement for Direct Deposit (ACH Credit) and Direct Payments (ACH Debits). Borrower agrees to maintain Direct Payments (ACH Debits) in its operating account which is the account that was reviewed in conjunction with underwriting and approval of this Loan (including keeping such account open until the Total Repayment Amount had been completely repaid).

 

6. PROMISE TO PAY. Borrower agrees to pay Lender the Total Repayment Amount shown in the accompanying Business Loan and Security Agreement Supplement in accordance with the Payment Schedule shown in the accompanying Business Loan and Security Agreement Supplement.

7. ALTERNATIVE PAYMENT METHODS. If Borrower knows that for any reason Lender will be unable to process a payment under Lender's Automatic Payment Plan, then Borrower must either restore sufficient funds such that the missed payment can be collected as provided in the accompanying Authorization Agreement for Direct Deposit (ACH Credit) and Direct Payments (ACH Debits), or promptly mail or deliver a check to Lender in the amount of the missed payment or, if offered, make the missed payment by any pay-by-phone or on-line service that Lender may make available from time to time. All alternative payments must be made in good funds by check, money order, wire transfer, automatic transfer from an account at an institution offering such service, or other instrument in U.S. Dollars. Borrower understands and agrees that payments made at any other address than as specified by Lender may result in a delay in processing and/or crediting. If Borrower makes an alternative payment on Borrowers Loan by mail or by any pay-by-phone or on-line service that Lender makes available while Borrower is enrolled in the Automatic Payment Plan, Lender may treat such payment as an additional payment and continue to process Borrowers scheduled Automatic Payment Plan payments or may reduce any scheduled Automatic Payment Plan payment by the amount of any such additional payment received.

 

8. APPLICATION OF PAYMENTS. Subject to applicable law, Lender reserves the right to allocate and apply payments received on Borrowers Loan between principal, interest and fees in any manner Lender chooses in Lender's sole discretion it being understood and agreed that any fees and interest will generally be paid during the earlier portion of the term.

 

9. POSTDATED CHECKS, RESTRICTED ENDORSEMENT CHECKS AND OTHER DISPUTED OR QUALIFIED PAYMENTS. Lender can accept late, postdated or partial payments without losing any of Lenders rights under this Agreement (a postdated check is a check dated later than the day it was actually presented for payment). Lender is under no obligation to hold a postdated check and Lender reserves the right to process every item presented as if dated the same date received by Lender or Lenders check processor unless Borrower gives Lender adequate notice and a reasonable opportunity to act on it. Except where such notice and opportunity is given, Borrower may not hold Lender liable for depositing any postdated check.   Borrower agrees not to send Lender partial payments marked "paid in full," "without recourse," or similar language. If Borrower sends such a payment, Lender may accept it without losing any of Lender's rights under this Agreement.  All notices and written communications concerning postdated checks, restricted endorsement checks (including any check or other payment instrument that indicates that the payment constitutes "payment in full" of the amount owed or that is tendered with other conditions or limitations or as full satisfaction of a disputed amount) or any other disputed, nonconforming or qualified payments, must be emailed to our Servicer, Altbanq Lending LLC at Uw@altbanq.com, Attn: Director of Operations.

All proceeds from any unauthorized disposition of the Collateral shall be held in trust for Lender, shall not be co-mingled with any other funds and shall immediately be delivered to Lender.

16. REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE. Borrower agrees to keep and maintain, and to cause others to keep and maintain, the Collateral in good order, repair and condition at all times while this Agreement remains in effect.

When performing an examination, Lender may photograph the interior and exterior of any Borrower place of business, including any signage, and may photograph any individual who has signed the Agreement ("Signatory") unless the Signatory previously has notified Lender that he or she does not authorize Lender to photograph the Signatory. Lender may obtain testimonials from any Signatory, including testimonials on why Borrower needed the Loan and how the Loan has helped Borrower. Any photograph and testimonial will become and remain the sole property of Lender. Borrower and each Signatory grant Lender the irrevocable and permanent right to display and share any photograph and testimonial in all forms and media, including composite and modified representations, for all purposes, including but not limited to any trade or commercial purpose, with any Lender employees and agents and with the general public. Lender may, but is not required to, use the name of any Borrower and Signatory as a credit in connection with any photograph and testimonial. Borrower and each Signatory waive the right to inspect or approve versions of any photograph or testimonial or the written copy or other media that may be used in connection with same.

D. Assemble Collateral: Lender may require Borrower and/or Guarantor to deliver to Lender all or any portion of the Collateral and any and all certificates of title and other documents relating to the Collateral. Lender may require Borrower and/or Guarantor to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Lender at a place to be designated by Lender. Lender also shall have full power to enter, provided Lender does so without a breach of the peace or a trespass, upon the property of Borrower and/or Guarantor to take possession of and remove the Collateral. If the Collateral contains other goods not covered by this Agreement at the time of repossession, Borrower and Guarantor agree that Lender may take such other goods, provided that Lender makes reasonable efforts to return them to Borrower and Guarantor after repossession.

 

E. Sell the Collateral: Lender shall have full power to sell, lease, transfer, or otherwise deal with the Collateral or proceeds thereof in Lender's own name or that of Borrower and/or Guarantor. Lender may sell the Collateral at public auction or private sale. Unless the Collateral threatens to decline speedily in value or is of a type customarily sold on a recognized market, Lender will give Borrower, Guarantor and other persons as required by law, reasonable notice of the time and place of any public sale, or the time after which any private sale or any other disposition of the Collateral is to be made. However, no notice need be provided to any person who, after an Event of Default occurs, enters into and authenticates an agreement waiving that person's right to notification of sale. The requirements of reasonable notice shall be met if such notice is given at least 10 days before the time of the sale or disposition. All expenses relating to the disposition of the Collateral, including without limitation the expenses of retaking, holding, insuring, preparing for sale and selling the Collateral, shall become a part of the Obligations secured by this Agreement. To the extent permitted by applicable law, all such expenses will become a part of the Obligations and, at Lenders option, will: (i) be payable on demand; (ii) be added to the balance of the Loan and be apportioned among and be payable with any installment payments to become due during either (a) the term of any applicable insurance policy or (b) the remaining term of the Loan; or (iii) be treated as a balloon payment that will be due and payable at the Loan's maturity.

 

F. Appoint Receiver: Lender shall have the right to have a receiver appointed to take possession of all or any part of the Collateral, with the power to protect and preserve the Collateral, to operate the Collateral preceding foreclosure or sale, and to collect the rents from the Collateral and apply the proceeds, over and above the cost of the receivership, against the Obligations. The receiver may serve without bond if permitted by law. Lender's right to the appointment of a receiver shall exist whether or not the apparent value of the Collateral exceeds the Obligations by a substantial amount. Employment by Lender shall not disqualify a person from serving as a receiver.

 

G. Collect Revenues. Apply Accounts: Lender, either itself or through a receiver, may collect the payments, rents, income, and revenues from the Collateral. Lender may at any time in Lender's discretion transfer any Collateral into Lender's own name or that of Lenders nominee and receive the payments, rents, income and revenues therefrom and hold the same as security for the Obligations or apply it to payment of the Obligations in such order of preference as Lender may determine. Insofar as the Collateral consists of accounts, general intangibles, insurance policies, instruments, chattel paper, choses in action, or similar property, Lender may demand, collect, receipt for, settle, compromise, adjust, sue for, foreclose or realize on the Collateral as Lender may determine, whether or not any amount included within the Obligations is then due. For these purposes, Lender may, on behalf of and in the name of Borrower and/or Guarantor, receive, open and dispose of mail addressed to Borrower; change any address to which mail and payments are to be sent; and endorse notes, checks, drafts, money orders, documents of title, instruments and items pertaining to payment, shipment or storage of any Collateral. To facilitate collections, Lender may notify account debtors and obligors on any Collateral to make payments directly to Lender.

 

H. Obtain Deficiency: If Lender chooses to sell any or all of the Collateral, Lender may obtain a judgment against Borrower and/or Guarantor for any deficiency remaining on the Obligations due to Lender after application of all amounts received from the exercise of the rights provided in this Agreement. Borrower and/or Guarantor shall be liable for a deficiency even if the transaction described in this subsection is a sale of accounts or chattel paper.

 

I. Other Rights and Remedies: Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default or breach of any term of this Agreement, lender shall have all the rights and remedies of a secured creditor under the provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code, as may be amended from time to time. In addition, Lender shall have and may exercise any or all other rights and remedies it may have available at law, in equity or otherwise.

 

J. Election of Remedies: Except as may be prohibited by applicable law, all of Lender's rights and remedies, whether evidenced by this Agreement, any related documents, or by any other writing, shall be cumulative and may be exercised singularly or concurrently. Election by Lender to pursue any remedy shall not exclude pursuit of any other remedy, and an election to make expenditures or to take action to perform an obligation of Borrower under the Agreement, after Borrowers failure to perform, shall not affect Lenders right to declare a default and exercise its remedies.

 

K. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default or if the Borrower fails to make any payment when due, the Outstanding Balance shall accrue interest at 24% (twenty four percent) per annum (“Default Interest Rate”) until the entire Outstanding Balance, all accrued unpaid Default Interest), Fees and other charges are paid to the Lender.

NEW HAVEN, CT, (May 6th, 2024) - Specialty cancer diagnostics company Precipio, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRPO), announces it has secured a short-term loan facility of $500K to deal with any delays in cash collections due to the recent cybersecurity attack on Change Healthcare, a healthcare billing company used by a significant part of the healthcare market.

 

Many healthcare businesses, including Precipio’s Diagnostic Services division, rely on Change Healthcare (CH) to submit bills and collect cash from various payors and insurance companies for the services they provide. CH experienced a widely publicized cybersecurity attack in early 2024 that impacted the daily flow of cash receipts to the company and, as discussed at the shareholders' call on April 1, 2024, has impacted its cash reserves.

 

As mentioned on the call, payments from customers of Precipio’s Products division are not processed through CH and were not impacted by the cybersecurity event. Additionally, no cybersecurity attack affected Precipio’s own IT infrastructure.

 

Under the terms of the facility, the company will draw down the first $250K immediately; and can access an additional $250K in a future time, at its discretion. The company can repay any amount of the loan at any time without prepayment penalties; and it will only pay interest on amounts actually borrowed.

 

“We are addressing a short-term operational situation with the appropriate financing tool to remedy the problem, and ensure the company maintains adequate operating liquidity”, said Ilan Danieli, Precipio’s CEO. “We believe this is a short-term situation rather than a material change to the business, and therefore we felt that a loan facility that the company can access and pay back at its discretion is a suitable vehicle. We are committed to the continued path towards profitability, and believe this is a temporary bump in that road”.
