Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

As previously disclosed by Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. (the “Company”), on December 30, 2017, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with ApplianceSmart, Inc., then a subsidiary of the Company (“ApplianceSmart”), and ApplianceSmart Holdings LLC (the “Purchaser”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Live Ventures Incorporated (“Live”). Pursuant to the Agreement, Purchaser purchased from the Company all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of ApplianceSmart in exchange for $6,500,000 (the “Purchase Price”). Purchaser was required to deliver the Purchase Price, and a portion of the Purchase Price was delivered, to the Seller prior to March 31, 2018. Between March 31, 2018 and April 24, 2018, the Purchaser and the Company negotiated in good faith the method of payment of the remaining outstanding balance of the Purchase Price.

 

As previously disclosed by the Company, on April 25, 2018, the Purchaser delivered to the Company that certain Promissory Note (the “ApplianceSmart Note”) in the original principal amount of $3,919,494 (the “Original Principal Amount”), as such amount may be adjusted per the terms of the ApplianceSmart Note. The ApplianceSmart Note was effective as of April 1, 2018 and matures on April 1, 2021 (the “Maturity Date”). The ApplianceSmart Note bears interest at 5% per annum and provided for the payment of interest monthly in arrears. Ten percent of the outstanding principal amount was required to be repaid annually on a quarterly basis, with the accrued and unpaid principal due on the Maturity Date. ApplianceSmart agreed to guaranty repayment of the ApplianceSmart Note. The remaining $2,580,506 of the Purchase Price was paid in cash by Purchaser to the Company. The Purchaser may reborrow funds, and pay interest on such re-borrowings, from the Company up to the Original Principal Amount. As of December 26, 2018, there was $3,821,507 outstanding on the ApplianceSmart Note.

 

On December 26, 2018, the Purchaser and the Company amended and restated the ApplianceSmart Note (the “Amended and Restated ApplianceSmart Note”) to, among other things, grant the Company a security interest in the assets of the Purchaser, ApplianceSmart and ApplianceSmart Contracting Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Purchaser (“ApplianceSmart Contracting”), in accordance with the terms of separate security agreements entered into between the Company and each of the Purchaser and ApplianceSmart, respectively, on December 26, 2018 and ApplianceSmart Contracting on December 28, 2018 (collectively, the “Security Agreements”) in exchange for the Company agreeing to modify the payment terms to provide that principal and interest under the Amended and Restated ApplianceSmart Note will accrue and be due and payable in full on the Maturity Date. The Amended and Restated ApplianceSmart Note and the Security Agreements were approved by a special committee of the Company’s Board of Directors composed entirely of an independent and disinterested director.

 

As previously disclosed, Jon Isaac, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Live, is the CEO, Manager and sole member of Isaac Capital Group, LLC, which, as of September 11, 2018, was the beneficial owner 14.8% of the outstanding capital stock of the Company. Jon Isaac is also the son of Tony Isaac, the Chief Executive Officer of the Company and former Chief Executive Officer of ApplianceSmart.
