Securities Purchase Agreements
Effective January 16, 2019, Digerati Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into securities purchase agreements (the “SPAs”) with four different investors (each an “Investor”, and together the “Investors”) pursuant to which each Investor purchased a 10% unsecured convertible promissory note (each a “Note”, and together the “Notes”) from the Company.
The terms and conditions of each of the Notes are substantially the same, with the following exceptions: three of the Notes (Notes I to III) are in the aggregate principal amount of $140,000 each, with a maturity date of October 16, 2019, and the remaining Notes (“Note IV & V”) are in the aggregate principal amount of $57,750 each, with a maturity date of January 24, 2020 and February 22, 2020, respectively. All principal amounts and the interest thereon are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Common Stock”) at the option of each Investor, after six (6) months from the dates of the Notes. All closings occurred following the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
The Company used the proceeds from Notes I to III only for the repayment of that certain senior convertible promissory note in the original principle amount of $305,555.56 issued by the Company on May 30, 2018 to Firstfire Global Opportunities Fund, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Firstfire Note”) (“Firstfire”). The Company intends to use the proceeds from Notes IV & V for general working capital purposes.
The purchase price of $140,000 of each of Notes I to III was paid in cash on January 16, 2019. After payment of transaction-related expenses of $51,000, net proceeds to the Company from Notes I to III totaled $369,000. The purchase price of $57,750 of each of Notes IV & V was paid in cash on January 24, 2019, and February 22, 2019, respectively. After payment of transaction-related expenses of $15,500, net proceeds to the Company from Note IV & V totaled $100,000.
Each Note shall bear interest at a rate of ten percent (10%) per annum (the “Interest Rate”), which interest shall be paid by the Company to each Investor in shares of Common Stock at any time an Investor sends a notice of conversion to the Company. Each Investor is entitled to, at its option, convert all or any amount of the principal amount and any accrued but unpaid interest of the Note into shares of the Company’s Common Stock, at any time, at a conversion price for each share of Common Stock equal to (i) the lowest trading price of the Common Stock (as defined in the Note) as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Marketplace exchange upon which the Company’s shares are traded during the twenty (20) consecutive Trading Day period immediately preceding the issuance date of each Note; or (ii) 60% multiplied by the lowest traded price of the Common Stock during the twenty (20) consecutive Trading Day period immediately preceding the Trading Day that the Company receives a notice of conversion (the “Variable Conversion Price”). The Variable Conversion Price may further be adjusted in connection with the terms of the Notes.
Each of the Notes may be prepaid until 180 days from the issuance date with the following penalties: (i) if a Note is prepaid within ninety (90) days of the issuance date, then the prepayment premium shall be 125% of the outstanding principal amount plus any accrued and unpaid interest; (ii) if a Note is prepaid during the period beginning on the date which is ninety-one (91) days following the issuance date, and ending on the date which is one hundred eighty (180) days following the issuance date, then the prepayment premium shall be 130% of the outstanding principal amount plus any accrued and unpaid interest. Such prepayment redemptions must be closed and funded within three days of giving notice of prepayment or the right to prepay shall be forfeited.
The Company shall at all times reserve a minimum of six (6) times the number of its authorized and unissued common stock (the “Reserved Amounts”), free from preemptive rights, to provide for the issuance of Common Stock upon the full conversion of the each of the Notes. Upon full conversion of each Note, any shares remaining in such reserve shall be cancelled. The Company will, from time to time, increases the Reserved Amount in accordance with the Company’s obligations under each of the Notes.
Pursuant to the terms of the SPAs, for so long as any of the Investors owns any shares of Common Stock issued upon conversion of a Note (the “Conversion Shares”), the Company covenants to secure and maintain the listing of such shares of Common Stock. The Company is also subject to certain customary negative covenants under the Notes and the SPAs, including but not limited to the requirement to maintain its corporate existence and assets, subject to certain exceptions, and not to make any offers or sales of any security under circumstances that would require registration of or stockholder approval for the Notes or the Conversion Shares.
Any shares to be issued pursuant to any conversion of the Notes shall be issued pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirement of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) provided in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.
The Notes are long-term debt obligations that are material to the Company. The Notes contain certain representations, warranties, covenants and events of default including if the Company is delinquent in its periodic report filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and increases in the amount of the principal and interest rates under the Notes in the event of such defaults. In the event of default, at the option of the Investors and in the Investors’ sole discretion, the Investors may consider the Notes immediately due and payable.
