Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


On December 15, 2021, BitNile Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a note purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Esousa Holdings, LLC (“Esousa”), pursuant to which the Company issued a Demand Secured Promissory Note (the “Note”) in the principal face amount of $7,500,000, with an interest rate of 10%. The outstanding principal face amount, plus any accrued and unpaid interest, is due on the 10th day after written demand is made by Esousa, or as otherwise provided in accordance with the terms set forth therein.


The Note contains standard and customary events of default (an “Event of Default”) including, but not limited to, failure to make payments when due under the Note, failure to comply with certain covenants contained in the Note, or bankruptcy or insolvency of the Company. After the occurrence of any Event of Default that results in the eventual acceleration of the Note, interest payable on the outstanding principal of the Note shall bear interest at eighteen percent (18%) per annum or such lower maximum rate permitted under applicable law.


The Note is secured by all of the assets of the Company existing as of the issuance date of the Note (the “Secured Assets”), but the Secured Assets will not consist of any assets acquired thereafter. Upon an Event of Default, the Company will use its best efforts to asset Esousa to perfect their security interests in the Secured Assets. In addition, Milton C. Ault, III, the Company’s Executive Chairman, and Ault & Company, Inc., an entity controlled by Mr. Ault, provided guarantees for the repayment of the Note.
