Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K contains only a brief description of the material terms of and does not purport to be a complete description of the rights and obligations of the parties to the MIPA, the ECS and CSLS SPA, the Guaranty, the Guarantor Fee Agreement, the January SPAs, the January Notes, the February SPAs, and the February Notes, and such descriptions are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the MIPA, the ECS and CSLS SPA, the Guaranty, the Guarantor Fee Agreement, the January SPAs, the January Notes, the February SPAs, and the February Notes, which will be filed as exhibits to the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarter ending March 31, 2020.

 

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

 

The applicable information set forth in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K with regard to the Line of Credit Agreement, the LOC Note, the January Notes, and the February Notes is incorporated by reference in this Item 2.03.

 

Item 3.02Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

The applicable information set forth in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference in this Item 3.02. The ECS Prepaid Purchase Share Issuance, the Ongoing MIPA Share Issuance, the ECS and CLS Purchase Share Issuance, the Ongoing ECS and CSLS Share Issuance, the ECS and CLS Purchase Share Issuance, the Ongoing Share Issuance, the January Notes, the January Share Issuance, the February Notes, the February Share Issuance, the possible issuances of True-Up Amounts pursuant to the January Notes and the February Notes, and the possible shares issuable pursuant to the possible conversion of the January and February Notes were not registered under the Securities Act, but qualified for exemption under Section 4(a)(2) and/or Regulation D of the Securities Act. The securities were exempt from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act because the issuance of such securities by the Company did not involve a “public offering,” as defined in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act, due to the insubstantial number of persons involved in the transactions, size of the offerings, manner of the offerings and number of securities offered. The Company did not undertake offerings in which it sold a high number of securities to a high number of investors. In addition, the investors had the necessary investment intent as required by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act since the investors agreed to, and received, the securities bearing a legend stating that such securities are restricted pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act. This restriction ensures that these securities would not be immediately redistributed into the market and therefore not be part of a “public offering.” Based on an analysis of the above factors, the Company has met the requirements to qualify for exemption under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

The applicable information set forth in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K with regard to the Line of Credit Agreement, the LOC Note, and the Guarantor Fee Agreement is incorporated by reference in this Item 5.02.
