Following the occurrence of an event of default under the IDB Note, the Bank may: (i) declare the entire outstanding principal balance of the IDB Note, together with all accrued interest and other sums due under the IDB Note, to be immediately due and payable; (ii) exercise its right of setoff against any money, funds, credits or other property of any nature in possession of, under control or custody of, or on deposit with the Bank; (iii) terminate the commitments of the Bank; and (iv) liquidate the money market account to reduce the Company’s obligations to the Bank.
Hercules Debt Agreement
In August 2012, the Company entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company issued a $ 15 million note (the “Hercules Note”) and received net proceeds of $ 14.7 million. The loan bore interest at a rate per annum equal to the greater of (i) 9.25% or (ii) 9.25% plus the sum of the prevailing prime rate minus 3.25%. The loan was to mature on March 1, 2016. The loan required interest-only payments for the initial 12 months and thereafter requires repayment of the principal balance with interest in 30 monthly installments. The Company had the option to extend the interest-only period for an additional six months, contingent upon the Company’s achievement of certain clinical development milestones. In connection with the Loan Agreement, the Company granted first priority liens and the loan was collateralized by substantially all of the Company’s assets (exclusive of intellectual property). The Loan Agreement also contains representations and warranties by the Company and Hercules and indemnification provisions in favor of Hercules and customary covenants (including limitations on other indebtedness, liens, acquisitions, investments and dividends, but no financial covenants), and events of default (including payment defaults, breaches of covenants following any applicable cure period, a material impairment in the perfection or priority of Hercules’ security interest or in the collateral, and events relating to bankruptcy or insolvency). Pursuant to the Loan Agreement, Hercules had the right to participate, in an amount of up to $2,000,000, in subsequent private placements of our equity securities at the same terms and conditions, including price, as purchases by other investors. In connection with the Loan Agreement, the Company issued to Hercules a fully-vested, seven-year warrant (the “Warrant”) to purchase 73,009 shares of its Common Stock at an exercise price of $5.65 per share and granted to Hercules certain “piggyback” registration rights with respect to the shares of Common Stock underlying the Warrant.
The fair value of the Warrant was calculated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following assumptions: volatility of 87.2%, an expected term equal to the contractual seven-year life of the Warrant, a risk-free interest rate of 1.1% and no dividend yield. The Company recorded the fair value of the Warrant of approximately $323,000 as equity and as a discount to the carrying value of the loan. Also, upon full repayment or maturity of the loan, Hercules is due a payment of 2.65% of the loan, or $398,000, which is recorded as a discount to the loan and as a long-term liability. Additionally, the Company incurred fees related to the Loan Agreement and reimbursed Hercules for costs incurred by them related to the loan aggregating $218,000 and which is reflected as a discount to the carrying value of the loan. The Company will amortize these loan discounts totaling $939,000 to interest expense over the term of the loan using the effective interest rate method, which approximates 12.3%. For the years ended December 31, 2014, 2013 and 2012, interest expense related to the Hercules loan was $845,000, $1,767,000 and $609,000, respectively, including $435,000, $381,000 and $123,000 related to accretion of the debt discount, respectively. At December 31, 2013, the current portion of the Hercules Note was $6,203,000 and noncurrent portion was $7,017,000 which was net of the debt discount of $434,000 was recorded on the Consolidated Balance Sheet.
On February 13, 2014, the Company repaid the Hercules Note in full. Early Payment of the Hercules Note was $14.0 million, consisting of principal of $13.2 million, end of term charge of $ 0.4 million, a prepayment fee of $0.3 million and interest of $0.1 million.
Interest expense for the years ended December 31, 2014, 2013 and 2012 was $1.3 million, $1.9 million and $670,000, respectively. During the years ended December 31, 2014, 2013 and 2012, interest expense related to the Hercules Note was $845,000, $1.7 million and $609,000, respectively, including $435,000, $381,000 and $123,000 related to accretion of the debt discount, and $43,000, $20,000, and $6,600 related to the amortization of financing costs, respectively. For the year ended December 31, 2014, interest expense incurred on the IDB Note was $292,000, and $4,000 related to amortization of financing costs.
