Amendment to CRG Agreement
On August 7, 2019, Dynavax entered into a second amendment (the “Second Amendment”) to its term loan agreement with CRG Servicing LLC (“CRG”) dated as of February 20, 2018 (the “Loan Agreement”). The Second Amendment amends the annual revenue thresholds for sales of

The Second Amendment also revises that certain Fee Letter, dated as of February 20, 2018, by and between Dynavax and CRG (the “Fee Letter”), increasing the backend facility fee payable by Dynavax under the Loan Agreement (i) upon partial prepayment and (ii) at maturity or any other date the loans under the Loan Agreement become due and payable, in each case, from 3% to 4% of the aggregate principal amounts of the loans prepaid on such date, or in the event of repayment of the Loans, the maximum amount of the loans advanced or deemed advanced under the Loan Agreement (reduced by the amount of the foregoing prepayment, if any). The Second Amendment’s effectiveness is conditioned upon, among other things, receipt by Dynavax of at least $40 million in gross proceeds from an equity investment within six weeks of the execution date of the Second Amendment.
