Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
The Peck Company Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into an Exchange and Subscription Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) dated April 22, 2020 with GreenSeed Investors, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“GSI”), and Solar Project Partners, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“SPP”). A copy of the Exchange Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.4 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, the Company subscribed for 500,000 Units of Class B Preferred Membership units of GSI in exchange for 200,000 shares of the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Shares”). In addition, the Company subscribed for and purchased 100,000 Units of SPP in exchange for the issuance by the Company of a Warrant to acquire 275,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock at an exercise price of $15.00 per share. A copy of the Certificate of Designation with respect to the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock and the form of Warrant are attached hereto as Exhibits 3.1 (e) and 4.9, respectively.
The Exchange Agreement provides that as long as the dividend payment on the Preferred Shares in each calendar quarter is equal to the aggregate distribution with respect to the GSI Units, such payments and distributions shall be offset and neither GSI nor the Company need to make any cash payments to the other.
The Company granted to GSI the right to repurchase up to 400,000 (in tranches of 50,000) of the Units at a valuation of $4,000,000.
The Company granted to GSI registration rights with respect to the Preferred Shares, the Warrant, and the Common Stock underlying the Warrant.
The foregoing is a summary of the Exchange Agreement and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Exchange Agreement.
Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
Peck Electric Co., a Vermont corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Borrower”), entered into a Business Loan Agreement dated January 13, 2020 (the “Loan Agreement”) with NBT Bank, National Association (the “Lender;). The Loan Agreement replaced the Business Loan Agreement between the Borrower and the Lender dated September 17, 2019 in the amount of $3,000,000 as well as the Business Loan Agreement dated August 13, 2019 between the Lender and Borrower in the amount of $2,000,000. The outstanding amounts under each of the prior loan agreements were paid in full with proceeds from the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement provides a credit facility not to exceed $6,000,000 and is payable upon demand of the Lender. In connection with the Loan Agreement, the Borrower executed and delivered a Promissory Note (the “Note”) dated January 13, 2020 in the aggregate amount of $6,000,000. Any amount due under the Note are payable upon demand of the Lender. If no demand is made, the Borrower is obligated to make monthly payments of accrued interest. Pursuant to the Loan Agreement, Jeffrey Peck, President of the Company, executed and delivered a Commercial Guaranty dated January 13, 2020 of the obligations of the Borrower under the Note and the Loan Agreement.
Peck Electric Co., a Vermont corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Borrower”), applied for and received a loan (the “PPP Loan”) from NBT Bank, N.A. (the “Lender”) in the principal amount of $1,487,624 pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”), which was enacted March 27, 2020.
The Loan is evidenced by a promissory note (the “PPP Note”), dated April 24, 2020, issued by the Borrower to the Lender. The PPP Note matures on April 24, 2022 and bears interest at a rate of 1.00% per annum, payable monthly commencing on November 24, 2020, following an initial deferral period as specified under the PPP. The PPP Note may be prepaid by the Borrower at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties. Proceeds from the PPP Loan will be available to the Borrower to fund designated expenses, including certain payroll costs, group health care benefits and other permitted expenses, in accordance with the PPP. Under the terms of the PPP, up to the entire amount of principal and accrued interest may be forgiven to the extent PPP Loan proceeds are used for qualifying expenses as described in the CARES Act and applicable implementing guidance issued by the U.S. Small Business Administration under the PPP. The Company intends that the Borrower will use the entire PPP Loan amount for designated qualifying expenses and to apply for forgiveness of the PPP Loan in accordance with the terms of the PPP. No assurance can be given that the Borrower will obtain forgiveness of the PPP Loan in whole or in part.
With respect to any portion of the PPP Loan that is not forgiven, the PPP Loan will be subject to customary provisions for a loan of this type, including customary events of default relating to, among other things, payment defaults, breaches of the provisions of the PPP Note and cross-defaults on any other loan with the Lender or other creditors.
As of April 27, 2020, and including the proceeds of the above-referenced PPP Loan, the Company will have approximately $61,323 cash on hand, $3,854,137 of outstanding indebtedness under the Loan Agreement described above and $1,487,624 of outstanding indebtedness under the PPP Loan. As of April 27, 2020, the Borrower has unused credit availability under the Loan Agreement of $2,145,863.
