NOTE 4 - CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE
In January 2019, the Company commenced an offering of up to $500,000 pursuant to which the Company will issue convertible notes to investors. On January 18, 2019 and February 5, 2019, the Company issued two such convertible notes payable to two investors for $100,000 and $130,000, respectively. The notes bear interest at a fixed rate of 10% per annum, computed based on a 360-day year and mature on the earlier of one year from the date of issuance or the consummation of an equity or equity-linked round of financing of the Company in excess of $1,000,000 (“Qualified Financing”) or other event pursuant to which conversion shares are to be issued pursuant to the terms of the note.
The notes are convertible into common stock of the Company following events on the following terms: with no action on the part of the note holder upon the consummation of a qualified financing, the debt will be converted to new round stock based on the product of the outstanding principal and accrued interest multiplied by 1.35 , then divided by the accrual per share price of the new round common stock. If a change of control occurs or if the Company completes a firmly underwritten public offering of its common stock prior to the qualified financing the notes would, at the election of the holders of a majority of the outstanding principal of the notes, be either payable on demand as of the closing of such change of control or Initial Public Offering (‘IPO”) or convertible into shares of common stock immediately prior to such change of control transaction or IPO transaction at a price per share equal to the lesser of the per share value of the common stock as determined by the Company’s Board of Directors or the per share consideration to be received by the holders of the common stock in such change of control or IPO transaction. Based on the terms of the conversion, the holders may receive a discount, and the notes are considered to have a contingent beneficial conversion feature. If conversion of the debt occurs, the Company will recognize an expense related to the intrinsic value. The Company recorded $4,216 of accrued interest and has a total outstanding principal balance of $230,000 as of March 31, 2019.
In the event that the Company consummates a financing prior to the Maturity Date, other than a Qualified Financing, and the economic terms thereof are more favorable to the investors in such financing than the terms of the Note, the Note shall automatically be amended to reflect such more favorable economic terms.
The Company recorded a total debt discount of $18,400 related to the above convertible notes. Amortization of the debt discount is recorded as interest expense and a total of $3,117 was amortized during the three months ended March 31, 2019.
