Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
As reported in the Company's 10-QSB for the quarter ended March 31, 2007, which was filed on May 15, 2007, the Company had reached agreements with the bridge lender and the demand note lender to repay the entire principal and accrued interest on these debts. The principal of the bridge loan of $1,515,000 plus accrued interest of approximately $166,000, along with principal of the demand loan of $150,000 plus accrued interest of approximately $7,000, was repaid by the Company on May 23, 2007 from unrestricted cash. In addition, for the various term extensions granted by the bridge lender, the Company issued approximately 56,000 shares of common stock, which represents 10% of the principal and interest repaid, divided by the five-day average share price prior to repayment of the debt.
In order for the repayment of bridge and demand loans to comply with the terms of the covenants of the bondholders of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority bonds, the bridge lender has obtained a letter of credit in favor of the Company for $1,825,000. This letter of credit is due to expire on April 7, 2008, and allows for a one-time draw down during the thirty days prior to expiration. The letter of credit is supported by assets of the bridge lender, and the Company has reimbursed to the bridge lender the letter of credit fee of $27,375. In the event that the Company utilizes the funds available under the letter of credit, we are required to issue additional shares of common stock equal to 60% of the amount utilized, calculated by dividing 60% of the amount used by the then-current share price. In addition the Company is required to repay principal and interest, stated at 12%. If the total standby letter of credit was used, the total shares issued under this calculation would be approximately 337,000, if the stock was then trading at the current market price. The Company has no way to determine how many shares would actually be issued at the share price in the future, nor the amount that might be drawn on the letter of credit. The Company has received the approval from the bondholder of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority Bonds to enter into this agreement.
