Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On September 25, 2018, Zosano Pharma Corporation (the Company) entered into a Master Lease Agreement (including related schedules, the
Lease Agreement) with Trinity Capital Fund III, L.P. (the Lessor).
Under the Lease Agreement, Lessor has agreed to provide the
Company with access to an equipment lease line of credit in an aggregate principal amount of up to $14 million (the Commitment). The first advance, of a principal amount of $5 million, was funded on September 25, 2018,
with monthly rent payments based on a monthly rate factor of 0.0320 for a term of thirty-six months. Additional advances, of a principal amount of up to $9 million, can be drawn down at the
Companys option at any time until March 30, 2020, or the earlier expiration pursuant to the terms of the Lease Agreement, with monthly rent payments based on a monthly rate factor of 0.0320, with upward adjustments indexed to the prime
rate, customarily defined, for a term of thirty-six months.
At the end of the drawdown period, the Company has
agreed to pay Lessor a non-utilization fee equal to 3% of the unused portion of the Commitment.
The Company has
the option, at the end of each lease term, to (a) extend the lease term for an additional three months, with the option to purchase the equipment at 4% of equipment cost following the end of such extended term, (b) purchase the equipment
at 12% of equipment cost or (c) return the equipment to Lessor and pay a restocking fee of 6% of equipment cost.
The restocking fee of 6% of
equipment cost shall apply if the lease term is cancelled or terminated prior to the end of the lease term.
Under the terms of the Lease Agreement, at
closing, the Company agreed to enter into a Security Agreement granting Lessor first priority liens and security interests in substantially all of the Companys assets as collateral for the obligations thereunder. Upon delivery and acceptance
of the equipment, Lessors security interest extends solely to the equipment and related assets.
The Lease Agreement also contains representations
and warranties by the Company and indemnification provisions in favor of Lessor and customary covenants (including limitations on other liens, but no financial covenants), and events of default (including payment defaults, breaches of covenants
following any applicable cure period, a material adverse change, and events relating to bankruptcy or insolvency).
In addition, pursuant to the Agreement,
the Company issued the Lessor a warrant (the Warrant) to purchase an aggregate of 75,000 shares of the Companys common stock, $0.0001 par value per share, at an exercise price of $3.5928 per share. The Warrant is immediately
exercisable upon issuance, and excluding certain mergers or acquisitions, expires on the seven-year anniversary of the date of issuance.
