Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On June 19, 2015, Arrhythmia Research Technology, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Micron Products, Inc. (collectively the “Company”) entered into a Fourth Amendment to Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) and a Second Amendment to Commercial Revolving Line of Credit Promissory Note with UniBank for Savings, pursuant to which the termination dates under the Company’s multi-year credit facility originally entered into on March 29, 2013 with the bank and the related promissory note were extended to June 30, 2017.
In addition, the Company entered into a Commercial Equipment Line of Credit Promissory Note with UniBank for Savings, pursuant to which it secured a new equipment line of credit for up to $1.0 million under the multi-year credit facility.
Advances on the equipment line shall not exceed 80% of the invoice amount of the equipment being purchased. The term of the equipment line of credit is six years, maturing on June 26, 2021, inclusive of a maximum one year draw period. Repayment shall consist of monthly interest only payments as to each advance commencing on the date of the loan through the earlier of: (i) one year from the date of the loan or (ii) the date upon which the equipment line of credit is fully advanced (the “Conversion Date”). On the Conversion Date, the equipment line shall convert to a five-year term loan with principal and interest payments due and payable monthly in an amount sufficient to pay the loan in full based upon an amortization schedule commensurate with the remaining term of the loan. During the interest only period, the interest rate shall be floating at the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus 0.25%. Commencing on the Conversion Date, the interest rate will be automatically adjusted to a per annum rate equal to the greater of: (i) the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston Five Year Rate as of the Conversion Date plus 3.00% or (ii) 4.25%, which interest rate shall be fixed until maturity.
The Commercial Equipment Line of Credit Promissory Note is subject to the terms and conditions outlined in the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement contains covenants related to various matters including certain financial covenants, prohibitions on further borrowings and security interests, merger or consolidation, acquisitions, guarantees, sales of assets other than in the normal course of business, leasing, and payment of dividends. The bank has a security interest in all operating assets of the Company.
