On April 27, 2020, Elite Legacy Education, Inc., a subsidiary of the Company, entered into a Promissory Note in favor of Pacific Premier Bank, the lender, through the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) established pursuant to the CARES Act. The unsecured loan (the “PPP Loan”) proceeds were in the amount of $1,899,832, matures on April 24, 2022, bears interest at a fixed rate of 1% per annum, and is payable in 17 equal monthly payments of interest only and a final payment of the full principal plus interest for one month. Under the terms of the CARES Act, PPP Loan recipients can apply for and be granted forgiveness for all or a portion of loans granted under the PPP. Such forgiveness will be determined, subject to limitations, based on the use of loan proceeds for payroll costs and mortgage interest, rent or utility costs and the maintenance of employee and compensation levels. The Company used a significant portion of the PPP Loan proceeds for qualifying expenses, but no assurance is provided that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the PPP Loan in whole or in part.

On March 8, 2021, the Company issued a $375 thousand Senior Secured Convertible Debenture (“Debenture”) to Legacy Tech Partners, LLC (“LTP”), a related party. The Debenture accrues interest at a rate of 10% and is due on the earlier of the occurrence of certain liquidity events with respect to the Company and March 8, 2022. The Debenture may be converted at any time after the issue date into shares of the Company’s Common Stock (the “Conversion Shares”) at a price equal to $0.05 per share. Together with each Conversion Share a warrant will be issued with a strike price of $0.05 per share and an expiration date of March 8, 2026 (the “Warrants”). LTP has an obligation to lend the Company an additional $625 thousand under the same terms prior to March 31, 2022, and an option to fund an additional $4 million under the same terms prior to March 8, 2024. LTP also has the option to extend the maturity date of each loan it makes to the Company, including the initial loan of $375 thousand for a term not to exceed four years from the original maturity date of that loan. Net proceeds were $314 thousand after legal fees of $61 thousand, which are included in our consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The Debenture is secured by a lien on all the Company’s assets. The Company’s U.S. subsidiaries entered into Guaranties on March 9, 2021 in favor of LTP under which such subsidiaries guaranteed the Company’s obligations under the Debenture and granted LTP a lien on all assets of such subsidiaries. The use of proceeds from the Debenture will be to extinguish liabilities of the Company and to fund the development of the Education Technology (EdTech) business. The Warrants will not be listed for trading on any national securities exchange. The Warrants and the shares issuable upon conversion of the Debenture are not being registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The aggregate number of shares issuable upon conversion of the Debenture and upon the exercise of the Warrants may not exceed 19.9% of the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares upon conversion of the Debenture and the exercise of the Warrants. On May 4, 2021 LTP exercised its conversion rights with respect to $330 thousand of the outstanding principal at the Conversion Price resulting in the issuance of 6.6 million shares of Common Stock to LTP. In addition, an equal number of warrants will be issued within 10 trading days of the conversion exercised date. The cash receipt date, March 10, 2021, was used for the market value of stock on measurement date, at $0.155 per common share, resulting in the recognition of debt discount and additional paid-in capital of $375 thousand, respectively, within the consolidated balance sheet for the three-months ended March 31, 2021, which is the lesser-of (1) debenture amount or (2) market value of the exercised option. The Company evaluated the convertible debenture under ASC 470-20 and recognized a debt discount of $375,000 related to the beneficial conversion feature during the three months ended March 31, 2021, with a corresponding credit to additional paid-in capital. The debt discount is being accreted to interest expense over the term of the note.
