On November 5, 2020, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with certain purchasers pursuant to which the Company issued Convertible Notes in an aggregate principal amount of $250,000 (the “November 2020 Notes”).

The terms of the July 2020 Notes are generally the same as the Company’s other Convertible Notes, except that the November 2020 Notes will be subject to mandatory conversion in the event of the completion of a future financing in the amount of at least $15 million at a conversion price equal to the lesser of (i) the conversion price in effect for the November 2020 Notes on the date of completion of such financing or (ii) 75% of the lowest per share price at which common stock may be issued in connection with any conversion rights associated with the financing, in each case, subject to the beneficial ownership limitations described above. See Note 2, Debt under the caption “Convertible Notes/Debentures” for additional information regarding the terms of the Company’s Convertible Notes.

The conversion price is also subject to adjustment due to certain events, including stock dividends, stock splits and in connection with the issuance by the Company of common stock or common stock equivalents at an effective price per share lower than the conversion rate then in effect. The Theorem Settlement Notes mature on January 31, 2021, and bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum, subject to increase to 18% per annum upon and during the occurrence of an event of default. Interest is payable in cash or, at the holder’s option, in shares of common stock based on the conversion price then in effect. The Company may not prepay the Theorem Settlement Notes without the prior written consent of the applicable Claimant.
The Theorem Settlement Notes contain a number of other affirmative and negative covenants and events of default (including events of default related to certain change of control and other fundamental change transactions). Following an event of default, the Theorem Settlement Notes will become immediately due and payable in cash at a mandatory default amount equal to 130% of the outstanding principal amount of the Theorem Settlement Notes plus all other amounts, costs and expenses due in respect of the Theorem Settlement Notes.
