Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On October 19, 2020, Immunic, Inc. (the “Company”) and Immunic AG, its wholly-owned subsidiary, entered into a Finance Contract (the “Loan Agreement”) with the European Investment Bank (“EIB”), pursuant to which EIB agreed to provide Immunic AG with a term loan in an aggregate amount of up to €24.5 million to support the development of Immunic’s lead asset, IMU-838, in moderate coronavirus disease 2019 (“COVID-19”), to be made available to be drawn in three tranches, with the second and third tranches subject to the completion of certain pre-defined milestones. The Company has the right to defer payment of principal and interest on the first and second tranches until five years after the respective borrowing dates, at which point such tranches must be repaid in full. The third tranche is repayable in annual installments commencing one year after its respective borrowing date and must be repaid in full no later than five years after such date. Any outstanding borrowings under the Loan Agreement will accrue interest as provided in the Loan Agreement.
From January 1, 2021 until December 31, 2030, the Company and Immunic AG are also obligated to pay EIB a very low single digit percentage of their revenue, as set forth in the Loan Agreement, subject to certain conditions and limitations tied to the total amount drawn under the Loan Agreement and subject to a cap of €8.6 million if only the first tranche is drawn and subject to a cap of €30 million if the full loan amount is drawn. The Loan Agreement also includes certain prepayment penalties that may be triggered by certain prepayments prior to the maturity date.
The Company will guarantee Immunic AG’s obligations to EIB pursuant to a Guarantee Agreement to be executed by the Company, Immunic AG and EIB (the “Guarantee Agreement”, and together with the Loan Agreement, the “Agreements”).
The foregoing description of the Agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreements, which are filed as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The Agreements have been included to provide investors and stockholders with information regarding their terms. The descriptions are not intended to provide any other factual information about the Company or the other parties thereto. The Agreements contain representations and warranties the parties thereto made to, and solely for the benefit of, the other parties thereto. Accordingly, investors and stockholders should not rely on the representations and warranties as characterizations of the actual state of facts, since information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Agreements, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures.
