Item 1.01Entry Into A Material Agreement.


The information set forth in Item 2.03 is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.


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


On July 6, 2020, an investor (the “Lender”) subscribed for a convertible promissory note (the “Note”) and loaned to Bionik Laboratories Corp. (the “Company”) $199,994 (the “Loan”), pursuant to the Company’s convertible note offering for up to $7,000,000 (formerly $3,000,000 or up to $7,000,000 if oversubscribed) gross proceeds (the “Offering”).


The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Loan for the Company’s working capital and general corporate purposes.


The Note bears interest at a fixed rate of 1% per month, computed based on a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months and will be payable, along with the principal amount, on March 31, 2021 (the “Maturity Date”).


The Note will be convertible into equity of the Company upon the following events on the following terms:


·On the Maturity Date, the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest under the Note will be converted into shares of common stock at a conversion price of $9.50 (the “Conversion Price”).


·Upon a change of control transaction prior to the Maturity Date, the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest under the Note would, at the election of the holders of a majority of the outstanding principal of the loans under the Offering, be either (i) payable upon demand as of the closing of such change of control transaction or (ii) convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock immediately prior to such change of control transaction at a price per share equal to the lesser of (x) the Conversion Price, or (y) the per share consideration to be received by the holders of the common stock in such change of control transaction.


The Note contains customary events of default, which, if uncured, entitles the Lender to accelerate the due date of the unpaid principal amount of, and all accrued and unpaid interest on, the Note.


Under certain circumstances, in the event the Note converts into common stock and the Company raises capital through the sale of common stock for cash during the period ending on the three year anniversary of the conversion date of the Note, and the price per share thereof (the “Offering Price”) minus 20% is less than the Conversion Price, then in such event the Company shall issue to the Lender additional shares of common stock equal to the number of conversion shares the Lender would have received upon conversion if the conversion price was a price equal to a 20% discount to the Offering Price, less the number of shares actually issued on or as of the Maturity Date.


To secure the prompt payment and performance to the Lender of the obligations under the Note, the Company granted to the Lender a continuing security interest in and to, and lien on, all of its collateral.


The foregoing is a brief description of the subscription of the Note and the terms of the Note, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of Subscription Agreement and the form of the Note, which are included as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 9, 2020 and which is incorporated herein by reference.
