Item 1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

As previously disclosed on January 6, 2017, Transgenomic, Inc. (the “Company”) previously entered into a series of Unsecured Convertible Promissory Notes with seven accredited investors (the “Investors”) in the principal amount of $925,000 (the “Notes”). Pursuant to the terms of the Notes, interest accrues at a rate of 6% per year and is due and payable by the Company on December 31, 2016 (the “Maturity Date”). The Company also issued, to its placement agent for the Notes, a convertible promissory note, upon the same terms and conditions as the Notes, in an aggregate principal amount equal to 5% of the proceeds received by the Company, or $46,250 (the “Agent Note”). The Notes are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at the option of the Investors and as of December 31, 2016 $400,000 of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes, and accrued interest thereon, has been converted into an aggregate of 281,023 shares of the Company’s common stock. On the Maturity Date, the then outstanding aggregate amount owed on the Notes and Agent Note of $638,016 ($571,250 in principal amount and $66,766 of accrued interest) became due. Pursuant to the terms of the Notes, the Company’s failure to pay any principal or interest within 10 days of the date such payment is due will constitute an event of default (the “Prospective Event of Default”).

 

On January 10, 2017, the Investors executed a waiver of the Prospective Event of Default, pursuant to which, the Investors agreed to waive the Prospective Event of Default on the condition that the Company and the Investors enter into definitive documentation evidencing the terms for an extended Maturity Date of the Notes and the Agent Note on or before January 16, 2017 (the “Waiver Deadline”).

 

On January 13, 2017, all but one Investor exercised their conversion rights relating to their respective Notes, including the Agent Note, and agreed to convert an aggregate amount of $499,359 of principal and interest due under the Notes and Agent Note into 416,133 shares of the Company’s common stock. The Waiver Deadline has been extended with respect to the remaining Investor who has not exercised conversion rights so that the parties can continue to discuss a resolution of the Prospective Event of Default relating to such Investor’s Note with an outstanding amount due of $139,876 as of January 13, 2017 ($125,000 in principal amount and $14,876 of accrued interest).

 

The foregoing description is qualified by reference to the full text of the January 10, 2017 waiver letter, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Form 8-K.
