The Loan Amendment amends the Original Loan Agreement by, among other things, (i) decreasing the interest rate on all borrowings to 8.5%, of which 2.0% is paid in-kind and capitalized to the principal amount of the outstanding term loan on a monthly basis until December 2022; after which interest accrues at an annual rate of 8.5%; (ii) extending the interest-only period to December 2022 and the maturity date to November 19, 2024; (iii) revising the prepayment terms to (x) restrict prepayments for the initial year following the date of the Loan Amendment and (y) setting the prepayment premium at 3% of the principal amount of any term loans prepaid prior to November 19, 2020, with such prepayment premium decreasing by 1% during each subsequent twelve-month period after November 19, 2020; and (iv) replacing the interest-only milestones with a financial covenant requiring that the Company achieve a specified level of revenue, as measured quarterly on a rolling twelve-month basis, and commencing with the quarter ending December 31, 2019, subject to exceptions based on achievement of performance milestones and the ability to cure any default thereof with the issuance of equity securities or subordinated indebtedness.
