Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On January 20, 2021, Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement, (the “Purchase Agreement”) with eighteen accredited investors (the “Purchasers”). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to sell to the Purchasers a total of (i) $2,236,500 in the aggregate principal amount of 12.5% Original Issue Discount Senior Subordinated Secured Convertible Debentures (the “Debentures”), and (ii) 1,397,813 common stock purchase warrants (the “Warrants”), which represents 100% warrant coverage. Joseph Gunnar & Co. LLC (“Gunner”) acted as placement agent for the offering of the Debentures. The Company received a total of $1,988,000 in gross proceeds from the offering, taking into account the 12.5% original issue discount, before deducting offering expenses and commissions, including Gunner’s commission of $191,270 (10% of the gross proceeds minus $7,500 paid to Gunner’s counsel) and additional fees related to the offering of the Debentures of approximately $50,500. The Company also agreed to issue to Gunner, as additional compensation, 279,563 common stock purchase warrants exercisable at $2.00 per share (the “PA Warrants”).
The Debentures mature on January 20, 2022, subject to a six-month extension at the Company’s option. The Debentures bear interest at 8% per annum payable quarterly, subject to an increase in case of an event of default as provided for therein. The Debentures are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Common Stock”) at any time following the date of issuance at the Purchasers’ option at a conversion price of $1.60 per share, subject to certain adjustments. The Debentures are subject to mandatory conversion in the event the Company closes an equity offering of at least $5,000,000 resulting in the listing of the Common Stock on a national securities exchange. The Debentures rank senior to all existing and future indebtedness of the Company and its subsidiaries, except for approximately $95,000 of outstanding senior indebtedness. In addition the Debentures rank pari-passu with, and amounts owing thereunder shall be paid concurrently with, payments owing pursuant to and in connection with that certain offering by the Company of 12.5% Original Issue Discount Senior Subordinated Secured Convertible Debentures due May 28, 2021 consummated in May and June 2020 in the aggregate principal amount of $2,953,125. The Company may prepay the Debentures at any time at a premium as provided for therein.
The Warrants are exercisable for three years from January 20, 2021 at an exercise price of $2.00 per share, subject to certain adjustments.
The Company’s obligations under the Purchase Agreement and the Debentures are secured by a first priority lien on all of the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries pursuant to a Security Agreement, dated January 20, 2021 (the “Security Agreement”) by and among the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiaries, and the Purchasers, subject to certain existing senior liens. The Company’s obligations under the Debentures are guaranteed by the Company’s subsidiaries.
The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company, including, among other things and subject to certain exceptions, covenants that restrict the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries, without the prior written consent of the Debenture holders, to incur additional indebtedness, including further advances under a certain preexisting secured loan, and repay outstanding indebtedness, create or permit liens on assets, repurchase stock, pay dividends or enter into transactions with affiliates. The Debentures contain customary events of default, including, but not limited to, failure to observe covenants under the Debentures, defaults on other specified indebtedness, loss of admission to trading on OTCQB or another applicable trading market, and occurrence of certain change of control events. Upon the occurrence of an event of default, an amount equal to 130% of the principal, accrued but unpaid interest, and other amounts owing under each Debenture will immediately come due and payable at the election of each Purchaser, and all amounts due under the Debentures will bear interest at an increased rate.
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Purchasers have certain participation rights in future equity offerings by the Company or any of its subsidiaries after the closing, subject to customary exceptions. The Debentures and the Warrants also contain certain price protection provisions providing for adjustment of the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Debentures and/or exercise of the Warrants and the conversion or exercise price in case of future dilutive offerings.
This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Debentures or the Warrants, nor shall there be any sale of the Debentures or the Warrants in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
