The information set forth in Item 2.03 is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.
|Item 2.03||Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant|
On January 22, 2019, existing investors (the “Lenders”) of Bionik Laboratories Corp. (the “Company”) subscribed for convertible promissory notes (the “Notes”) and loaned to the Company an aggregate of $1,500,000 (the “Loans”). The Loans represent an additional tranche borrowed pursuant to an up to $5,000,000 convertible note offering (the “Offering”), for total borrowed principal through January 22, 2019 of approximately $4,650,000. An aggregate of $750,000 of the Loans was loaned by an affiliate of Remi Gaston-Dreyfus, a director of the Company.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Loans, after fees and other expenses, for the Company’s working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Notes bear 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 the earlier of (the “Maturity Date”): (a) March 28, 2019 and (b) the consummation of an equity or equity-linked round of financing of the Company in whatever form or type that raises in one or more tranches aggregate gross proceeds of no less than US$2,000,000 (“Qualified Financing”).
The Notes will be convertible into equity of the Company upon the following events on the following terms:
|·||On the Maturity Date without any action on the part of the Lenders, the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest under the Notes will be converted into shares of common stock based upon (A) a twenty percent (20%) discount to the price per share of common stock in the Qualified Financing in the event of a Maturity Date referred to in clause (b) of the definition thereof and provided that such Qualified Financing is consummated on or prior to March 27, 2019 or (B) in all other cases, a twenty percent (20%) discount to the lesser of (y) the volume weighted average price (“VWAP”) average of the last 30 calendar days ending on the closing of the Offering (or, in the event of multiple closings, the VWAP average of the last 30 calendar days ending on each closing of the Offering), or (z) the VWAP average of the last 30 calendar days ending on the Maturity Date in the event of a Maturity Date referred to in clause (a) of the definition thereof.|
|·||Upon a change of control transaction prior to the Maturity Date, the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest under the Notes 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 common stock immediately prior to such change of control transaction at a price per share equal to the lesser of (x) the VWAP average of the last 30 days before the date of consummation of the change of control, or (y) the per share consideration to be received by the holders of the common stock in such change of control transaction.|
The Notes contain customary events of default, which, if uncured, entitle the Lenders to accelerate the due date of the unpaid principal amount of, and all accrued and unpaid interest on, the Notes.
The foregoing is a brief description of the subscription of the Notes and the terms of the Notes and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of Subscription Agreement and the form of the Note, the forms of 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 October 12, 2018, each of which are incorporated herein by reference.
|Item 3.02||Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.|
