Item 1.01 Entry into Material Definitive Agreement


The disclosure set forth in Item 2.03 is incorporated herein by reference.


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


Effective December 5, 2014, Reed’s Inc. (the “Company”) renewed and extended its Loan and Security Agreement with PMC Financial Services Group, LLC, (PMC) originally dated November 9, 2011 (as amended, the “Amended Agreement”). The Amended Agreement extends and amends the Revolving Loan and Term Loan and adds a new Capital Expansion Loan (the “Capex Loan”).


The loans have been extended to December 5, 2016 and are subject to a 1% prepayment penalty for prepayment prior to the first anniversary of the effective date. As of the effective date of the Amended Agreement, all three loans have an effective interest rate of 9%.


The Revolving Loan’s maximum revolver amount has been increased to $6,000,000 and the borrowing is based on 85% of Accounts Receivable and 60% of eligible inventory and is secured by substantially all of the Company’s assets. The interest rate on the Revolving Loan is the prime rate plus .35%. The previous interest rate was the prime rate plus 3.75%. The amended monthly management fee is .45% of the average monthly loan balance; the previous fee was .5% of the average monthly loan balance. Therefore, the effective interest rate was lowered from 13% to 9%. The over advance of $500,000 on the revolving line of credit calculation was removed.


The Term Loan’s outstanding principal balance will be increased to $1,500,000 and the annual interest rate has been revised to prime plus 5.75% (currently 9%). The outstanding principal loan balance at the time of the amendment was $496,572 and the previous interest rate was the prime rate plus 11.6% but not less than 14.85%.


The new Capex Loan will finance up to $3,000,000 in new asset purchases for modernization and improvement of the beverage bottling equipment in Los Angeles plant. The Company will pay a 1.5% fee on new asset purchases and the annual interest rate is equal to the prime rate plus 5.75%.


The new loan and security agreement documents were signed December 10, 2014.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
