Senior Debt



On October 28, 2015, the Company, through its main operating entity Jus-Com, Inc. entered into an $8 million dollar senior credit facility. The facility has a two year term, and calls for interest payments in the amount of 12%, paid quarterly in arrears. Additionally, there is a “payment in kind” (PIK) provision which calls for a 4% per annum increase in the principal balance monthly. The facility is a senior credit facility, and is secured by principally all assets of the Company. The uses of the senior facility are to retire the existing senior debt and related accrued interest through a tender offer, retire the factoring line of credit, pay certain senior loan closing costs, settle certain pending litigation, and provide working capital to the Company. A “blocked” bank deposit account, controlled by the lender, was also initially established in the amount of $3,000,000 to be held for future advances. (See restricted cash, note 3). The Company is prohibited from an early payoff of the facility until October 28, 2017. There are several affirmative and negative covenants the Company must comply with, such as minimum bank account balances, minimum EDITDA thresholds, capital expenditures, leverage ratio, and debt service coverage ratio. As a condition of the facility, the Company issued 163,441 shares of its Series D preferred stock and 391,903 shares of its Series F preferred stock to the lender. As a result of a market valuation performed on this transaction by a qualified third party valuation firm, an original issue discount of $437,380 was determined, which will be amortized on a straight line method, which approximates the interest rate method, over a twenty four month period to interest expense. During the period ended December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, $249,018 and $72,877 was included in amortization of debt discount, respectively, and $236,914 remained unamortized as of December 31, 2016. On April 5, 2016, the Company entered into an amendment agreement to its existing credit facility with Lateral, amending the original credit agreement signed October 28, 2015. The agreement amends select provisions of the original credit agreement, including equity raises and changes to certain financial and operational covenants. On September 30, 2016, the Company entered into a second amendment agreement to its existing credit facility, maturing October 28, 2017, amending the original credit agreement signed October 28, 2015. The agreement was amended solely to consolidate a series of short term bridge loans granted to the company from time to time during the second and third quarter of 2016 into a $2.5 million loan, which matures on April 30, 2017. The second amendment also amended the covenants related to consolidated EBITDA consolidated leverage, consolidated debt service, SG&A expenses, and compensation expense. On April 20, 2017, in conjunction with the acquisition of Benchmark Builders Inc, Lateral amended its existing credit facility to provide for approximately $10.1 million towards the cash purchase price, combining this new advance with the existing debt, extending the maturity date of the combined facility to March 31, 2019.
