Item 1.01. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On December 11, 2018, Energy Focus Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a three-year, secured, revolving line of credit (the “Credit Facility”) of up to $5 million with Austin Financial Services (the “Lender”). The total loan amount available to the Company under the line from time to time is based on the amount of the Company’s (i) qualified accounts receivable, which is equal to 85% of its net amount of eligible receivables, plus (ii) available inventory, which is the lesser of 50% of the net realizable value of eligible inventory, or $500,000. The Credit Facility has a minimum borrowing requirement of $1 million.
The line is secured by a lien on the Company’s assets. Interest on advances under the line is due monthly at the “Prime Rate,” as published by the Wall Street Journal from time to time, plus a margin of 2%. Overdrafts are subject to a 3% fee. In addition, an annual facility fee of 1% is due at the beginning of each of the three years and a 0.50% collateral management fee on the average outstanding loan balance payable monthly. The Company paid the Lender the first year’s fee when the Credit Facility was signed.
The repayment of outstanding advances and interest under this Credit Facility may be accelerated upon an event of default including, but not limited to, failure to make timely payments or breach of any terms set forth in the Credit Facility. The Credit Facility has no financial covenants, but is subject to customary affirmative and negative operating covenants and defaults restricting indebtedness, liens, corporate transactions, dividends, and affiliate transactions, among others. The Company or the Lender has the ability to terminate the Credit Facility with a 90-day notice.
There are liquidated damages if the Credit Facility is terminated prior to December 11, 2021, as follows: 3% in the first year, 2% in the second year, and 1% in the third year.
On December 11, 2018, the Registrant issued a press release announcing the Credit Facility, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference.
