Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On April 20, 2020, One Stop Systems, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with an institutional investor, providing for the issuance of the Company’s Senior Secured Convertible Promissory Notes (the “Notes”) with a principal face amount of up to $6,000,000.   The Notes are, subject to certain conditions, convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), at an initial conversion price per share of $2.50 (the “Conversion Shares”, collectively with the Notes, the “Securities”). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Notes will be issued with a 10% original issue discount.

 

At the initial closing of this offering, we will issue $3,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of notes to certain institutional investors. We can consummate additional closings of up to $3,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of notes with such additional investors, subject to the prior satisfaction of certain closing conditions. The investor is purchasing the Securities for an aggregate purchase price of $2,700,000 at the initial closing.

 

The Notes bear no interest rate (except upon event of default) and, unless earlier converted or redeemed, will mature on the date that is the twenty-three (23) month anniversary of the last day of the month in which the closing with respect to the applicable Note occurs.

 

The Notes are convertible at any time, in whole or in part, at the option of the investors, into shares of common stock at the initial conversion price of $2.50 per share. The conversion price is subject to adjustment for issuances of securities below the conversion price then in effect and for stock splits, combinations or similar events. If immediately following the close of business on the six month anniversary of the issuance date of each Note, the conversion price then in effect exceeds 135% of the volume weighted average price (VWAP) (the “Market Price”), the initial conversion price under any such Note will be automatically lowered to the Market Price.

 

Commencing 3 months from the issuance date of such Note,  and on the first trading day of the month for each month thereafter, and on the maturity date (each such date is referred to herein as an “Installment Date”), unless deferred or accelerated , the Company will make monthly amortization payments equal to 1/22nd of the initial principal, any accrued and unpaid interest and late charges and any deferred or accelerated amount, of such Note (referred to herein as the “Installment Amount”), which may be satisfied in cash at a redemption price equal to 105% of such installment amount  (110% of such installment amount on Notes issued at additional closings).

 

Subject to the satisfaction of certain equity conditions set forth in the Notes, Installment Amounts may be satisfied in shares of our common stock, with such installment conversion at a conversion price equal to the lower of (i) the conversion price then in effect and (ii) the greater of (x) the floor price of $1.00 (20% of the Nasdaq market price at date of Purchase Agreement) and (y) the lower of (I) 82.5% the volume weighted average price of our common stock on the trading day immediately before the applicable installment date and (II) 82.5% of the lowest volume weighted average price in the 20 days prior to the installment date. Shares of our common stock to be issued with respect to any such installment will be predelivered on the 2nd trading day after the applicable installment notice date (as defined in the Notes) with a true-up on the applicable Installment Date. The market value of any Installment Amount below the floor price will be cash settled on the applicable Installment Date.  

 

 

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Notes and the Conversion Shares will be issued to the investors in a registered direct offering (the “Registered Offering”) and registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to a prospectus supplement to the Company’s currently effective registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-231513), which was initially filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 15, 2019, and was declared effective on June 19, 2019 (the “Shelf Registration Statement”). The Company expects to file the prospectus supplement for the Registered Offering on or about April 21, 2020.

 

The Company expects the offering to close on or about April 22, 2020, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions in the Purchase Agreement. The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements of the Company and the investors and customary indemnification rights and obligations of the parties thereto.

 

In connection with the Purchase Agreement, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries entered into a security agreement, dated as of April 20, 2020, with the investor (the “Security Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company and its subsidiaries granted to the investor a first prior senior security interest in, among other items, the Company and its subsidiaries’ accounts, chattel paper, documents, equipment, general intangibles, instruments and inventory, and all proceeds, as set forth in the Security Agreement. In addition, the Company, certain existing senior secured lenders (the “Existing Noteholders”) and the investor entered into an intercreditor agreement (the “Intercreditor Agreement”) to establish their respective rights and priorities in the Company’s collateral,

including, but not limited to the allocation of proceeds upon a distribution or liquidation to the Existing Noteholders and the investor on a pari passu pro rata basis.

 

Roth Capital Partners served as exclusive placement agent on this transaction.

 

The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement, the Notes, the Security Agreement, and the Intercreditor Agreement,  are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such Purchase Agreement, Notes, Security Agreement, and Intercreditor Agreement, the forms of which are attached as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, 10.3 and 4.1, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Form 8-K”), and which are incorporated herein in their entirety by reference.

Exhibit 5.1 is incorporated herein by reference and into the Shelf Registration Statement.

 

This Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements that express the Company’s intentions, beliefs, expectations, strategies, predictions or any other statements related to the Company’s future activities, or future events or conditions.
