On June 17, 2020, Emerald Bioscience, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), effected a fifth drawdown in the amount of $300,000 (the “Drawdown”) pursuant to that certain Multi-Draw Credit Agreement dated October 5, 2018, as amended by that certain Amended and Restated Multi-Draw Credit Agreement dated April 29, 2020 (collectively, the “Credit Agreement”), by and between the Company and Emerald Health Sciences Inc.

The Credit Agreement provides for a revolving credit facility to the Company of up to $20,000,000, and is unsecured. As of June 17, 2020, the Company has drawn down a total principal amount of $6,150,000 from the credit facility. Pursuant to the terms of the Credit Agreement, the loan bears interest at 7% per annum and matures on October 5, 2022, unless earlier converted into shares of the Company’s common stock.


In accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement, EHS has elected that the Drawdown will not be convertible into shares of Company’s common stock and gave notice to the Company that no warrant will be issued in connection with the Drawdown at this time.
