Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities
On January 17, 2013, the Registrant accepted a conversion notice from JMJ Financial, ("JMJ", or “the Lender”) to partially satisfy a $550,000 Promissory Note ("the Note") dated July 11, 2012 with JMJ. The Principal Sum due to the Lender shall be prorated based on the consideration actually paid by the Lender, plus an approximate 10% Original Issue Discount ("OID") that is prorated based on the consideration actually paid by the Lender as well as any other interest or fees, such that the Registrant is only required to repay the amount funded and the Registrant is not required to repay any unfunded portion of the Note. As of the date prior to the conversion notice, the principal due was $115,000 plus the OID ($11,500) and accrued interest ($5,500).
The Note has a maturity date of twelve (12) months from the Effective Date. If the Note is repaid within ninety (90) days of the Effective Date, the interest rate shall be zero percent (0%). Should the Note still be outstanding after 90 days, a one-time 5% interest rate will be applied. In addition, the Lender has the right, at any time 90 days after the Effective Date, at its election, to convert all or part of the outstanding and unpaid Principal Sum and accrued interest (and any other fees) into shares of fully paid and non-assessable shares of common stock of the Registrant. The Conversion Price is the lesser of $0.10 or 70% of the average of the two lowest closing prices in the 25 trading days previous to the conversion.
In accordance with the terms of the Note and receipt of the required conversion notice from JMJ, the Note was partially converted into 500,000 restricted shares of common stock of the Company to satisfy $14,000 of the principal and interest. The remaining amount outstanding on the Note, including accrued interest and the aforementioned OID, is $118,000. The shares issued were valued at $0.028 per share, which was equal to 70% of the average of the two lowest closing prices of our common stock in the 25 trading days immediately preceding the conversion date.
JMJ is an “accredited investor” as defined under Rule 501 of Regulation D. The Company believes that this transaction is exempt from registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
The above described executed Note is attached hereto and incorporated by reference as Exhibits 10.1.
Item 8.01 Other Events
On January 29, 2013, the Registrant completed a cash Installment Payment of $37,666.67 plus $4,611.09 accrued interest in accordance with a $100,000 Convertible Promissory Note ("the Note") to Tonaquint, Inc, ("Tonaquint", or “the Lender”) dated August 2, 2012. The Note carries a $10,000 original issue discount (the “OID”), as well as $3,000 in transaction fees, such that the initial Principal Sum due is $113,000. The interest rate on the Note is 8% per annum. The Note has a maturity date of nine (9) months from the Effective Date, and has a fixed conversion price of $0.06. The Note is self-amortizing, such that it may be repaid in cash in three (3) monthly installments of $37,666.67 plus accrued interest beginning 180 days from the Effective Date. In lieu of cash payments, the Company may elect to convert the note to shares at 70% of the arithmetic average of the three (3) lowest VWAPs of the shares of Common Stock during the ten (10) consecutive Trading Day period immediately preceding the date of such conversion. No conversion can occur prior to 180 days from the Effective Date. In connection with this transaction, a commission was paid to Carter Terry & Company, a registered broker-dealer, consisting of $10,000 in cash and 85,000 restricted Rule 144 shares of common stock.
By exercising its right to repay the Note in cash, the Registrant has declined conversion of the Note such that no shares of stock will be issued. Upon payment in cash of the next two monthly installment payments, the Note is expected to be retired and extinguished in its entirety.
The above described executed Note is attached hereto and incorporated by reference as Exhibits 10.2.
