Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On January 25, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), Vinco Ventures Inc. (the “Company”) consummated the closing of a private placement offering (the “Offering”) whereby pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) entered into by the Company on January 21, 2021 with one accredited investor (the “Investor”), the Company issued a Senior Convertible Note for the purchase price of $12,000,000 (the “Note”) and a five (5) year warrant (the “Warrant”) to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”).
The Note carries an interest rate of 6% per annum and matures on the 12-month anniversary of the Issuance Date (as defined in the Note). The Note contains a voluntary conversion mechanism whereby the Noteholder may convert at any time after the Issuance Date, in whole or in part, the outstanding balance of the Note into shares of the Common Stock at a conversion price of $2.00 per share (the “Conversion Shares”). The Note shall be a senior obligation of the Company and its subsidiaries. The Note contains customary events of default (each an “Event of Default”). If an Event of Default occurs, interest under the Note will accrue at a rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum and the outstanding principal amount of the Note, plus accrued but unpaid interest, liquidated damages and other amounts owing with respect to the Note will become, at the Note holder’s election, immediately due and payable in cash. Upon completion of a Change of Control (as defined in the Note), the Note’s holder may require the Company to purchase any outstanding portion of the Note in cash at a price in accordance with the terms of the Note.
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Investor received a Warrant in an amount equal to 250% of the shares of Common Stock initially issuable to each Investor pursuant to the Investor’s Note. The Warrant contains an exercise price of $2.00 per share. In connection with the closing of the Offering, the Warrant was issued to purchase an aggregate of 15,000,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Warrant Shares”).
The Company also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement with the Investor (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). The Registration Rights Agreement provides that the Company shall (i) file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) a Registration Statement by 30 days following the Closing Date to register the Conversion Shares and Warrant Shares (the “Registration Statement”); and (ii) use all commercially reasonable efforts to have the Registration Statement declared effective by the Commission within 60 days following the Closing Date or at the earliest possible date, or 75 days following the Closing Date if the Registration Statement receives comments from the Commission.
Palladium Capital Group, LLC (the “Placement Agent”) acted as placement agent for the Offering. The Placement Agent received cash compensation of $1,080,000 (8% of the gross proceeds to the Company plus an additional 1% of the gross proceeds to the Company for non-accountable expenses). The Placement Agent also received a Warrant in an amount equal to 8% of the shares of Common Stock initially issuable to each Investor pursuant to the Investor’s Note.
The foregoing provides only brief descriptions of the material terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Note, the Warrant and the Registration Rights Agreement and does not purport to be a complete description of the rights and obligations of the parties thereunder, and such descriptions are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the forms of the Purchase Agreement, the Note, the Warrant and the Registration Rights Agreement filed as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and are incorporated herein by reference.
Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of the Registrant.
The applicable information set forth in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference in this Item 2.03.
Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
Item 1.01 is hereby incorporated by reference.
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 Note, Warrant, Conversion Shares, and Warrant Shares 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 transaction, size of the offering, manner of the offering and number of securities offered. The Company did not undertake an offering 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.
