Horizon and Molteni Loans

In March 2018, we entered into an Amended and Restated Venture Loan and Security Agreement (the "Loan Agreement") with Horizon Credit II LLC ("Horizon") and Molteni pursuant to which Horizon assigned approximately $2.4 million of the $4.0 million outstanding principal balance of its loan to us to Molteni and Molteni was appointed as the collateral agent and assumed majority and administrative control of the loan. Under the Loan Agreement, Molteni had the right to convert its portion of the debt into shares of our common stock at a conversion price of $7.20 per share and was required to effect this conversion of debt to equity upon completion of an equity financing meeting specified criteria. In connection with the Loan Agreement, we issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 6,667 shares of our common stock with an exercise price per share of $7.20 to Horizon.

In September 2019, we entered into an amendment to the Loan Agreement pursuant to which the interest-only payment and forbearance periods were extended by one year to December 31, 2020 and the maturity date was extended by one year to June 1, 2022. In connection with the amendment to the Loan Agreement, the final payments to the lenders were increased by an aggregate of approximately $0.3 million (exclusive of a restructuring fee payable to Horizon) and the conversion provisions related to Molteni's portion of the loan amount were revised to eliminate the mandatory conversion feature, to reduce the conversion price to $0.225 and to cap the number of shares issuable upon conversion to 3,422,777, with any balance repayable in cash.

In accordance with ASC 470, the amendment to the loan from Molteni is accounted for under debt extinguishment accounting, which required us to extinguish the carrying amount of the loan prior to the amendment and reacquire the loan after the amendment. As a result, during the three months ended September 30, 2019, we recorded approximately $0.3 million gain on debt extinguishment related to the write-off of the balance of the accreted final payment of the loan. The modification to the loan from Horizon did not constitute debt extinguishment and, therefore, did not have any impact to our condensed financial statements.

Repayment of the loans is on an interest-only basis, followed by monthly payments of principal and accrued interest for the balance of the 46-month term. The loans bear interest at a floating coupon rate of one-month LIBOR (floor of 1.10%) plus 8.40%. A final payment equal to 5.0% of each loan tranche will be due on the scheduled maturity date for such loan. In addition, if we repay all or a portion of the loan prior to the applicable maturity date, we will pay Horizon and Molteni prepayment penalty fees.

Debt discount associated with the Horizon and Molteni Loans was approximately $0.3 million as of both September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

In October 2020, we settled all of our outstanding debt obligations, to Horizon and Molteni. See Note 8 "Subsequent Events."

Molteni Convertible Loan

In connection with the amendment to the Molteni Purchase Agreement (see Note 4), in June 2019, the Molteni Convertible Loan, together with unpaid accrued interest, was converted in full into 448,287 shares of our common stock at $1.50 per share upon the receipt of EMA approval of Sixmo. As a result, we recorded approximately $0.1 million loss on debt extinguishment.

Paycheck Protection Program Loan

On April 20, 2020, we received an approximately $0.7 million loan (“PPP Loan”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program of the CARES Act. The PPP Loan matures in April 2022 with an annual interest rate of 1.0%. The PPP Loan originally had a six month deferral of payments period which was extended to sixteen months during the third quarter of 2020 and may be prepaid at any time without penalty.  All other terms remained the same. Forgiveness of the loan, when requested, is not automatic and is only available for principal that is used for the limited purposes that expressly qualify for forgiveness under SBA requirements. The proceeds of the PPP Loan are to be used to retain workers and maintain payroll and make mortgage interest, lease and utility payments.


Approximately $0.1 million of the PPP loan is included in current portion of long-term debt and approximately $0.6 million is included in long-term debt on our condensed balance sheet at September 30, 2020.
