INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS FORM 6-K REPORT

 

As previously reported by Borqs Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”), BORQS Hong Kong Limited (“BORQS HK”) an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into a loan agreement (the “Original Loan Agreement”) with Partners For Growth V, L.P. (“PFG5”), effective April 30, 2018, for a term loan in the maximum amount of $3 million at an interest rate of 8.0% per annum with a maturity date of April 30, 2021 (the “Original Loan”). As also previously reported on a Current Report on Form 8-K of the Company, on December 17, 2018, the Company, BORQS International Holding Corp. (“BORQS International”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and BORQS HK entered into a Waiver and Modification No. 1 to Loan and Security Agreement with PFG5 to amend the Original Loan Agreement (the “Amended Loan Agreement”) to include a convertible term loan pursuant to which BORQS HK issued a senior secured convertible note to PFG5 (the “Note”) in the principal amount of $1 million, at an interest rate of 12% per annum with a maturity date of December 17, 2023 (the “Convertible Loan”, together with the Original Loan, the “Prior PFG5 Loans”). The Note is convertible into ordinary shares of the Company at the option of PFG5 at a conversion price of $4.79, for a total of 208,768 ordinary shares (subject to certain customary adjustments). On December 17, 2018, PFG5 funded the Note, minus a $15,000 commitment fee.

 

On March 8, 2019 (the “Closing Date”), BORQS HK, BORQS Technologies (HK) Limited, an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“BORQS Tech HK”, together with BORQS HK, the “Borrower”), the Company and BORQS International as guarantors of the Borrower entered into an Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement with PFG5 (the “Restated Loan Agreement”) to amend and restate the Amended Loan Agreement in its entirety to also provide the Borrower with a new revolving line of credit facility (the “RLOC”, together with the Prior PFG5 Loans, the “Current PFG5 Loans”). Proceeds drawn from the RLOC will be used by the Company: (i) to pay off all outstanding loan amounts owed by the Company and its subsidiaries to SPD Silicon Valley Bank Co., Ltd, a PRC banking institution (“SSVB”), and (ii) for working capital purposes. PFG5’s rights under the Restated Loan Agreement are pari passu with the rights of Partners For Growth IV, L.P. (“PFG4”), a related party of PFG5, under that certain Loan and Security Agreement, dated August 26, 2016, by and between BORQS HK and PFG4, as amended, which remains in full force and effect according to its terms.

 

Subject to advance limits set forth under the Restated Loan Agreement, a total credit line of $12.5 million is potentially available under the RLOC to the Borrower as follows: (i) $9,500,000 may be drawn upon request at any time on or after the Closing Date (“Tranche 1”) and (ii) so long as there is no uncured default at the time of drawdown and if the Company has received at least $10 million in cash proceeds from the sale of its equity securities to investors, then an additional $3,000,000 may be drawn (“Tranche 2”). Any outstanding amounts under the RLOC will accrue interest at a rate of 11% per annum with a maturity date of March 8, 2021 (the “Maturity Date”). The Borrower shall pay interest only on principal outstanding on the RLOC until the Maturity Date, on which date the entire unpaid principal balance on the RLOC plus any and all accrued and unpaid interest shall be repaid. The Borrower may repay and reborrow principal under the RLOC, and any termination of the RLOC by repayment shall be without prepayment or termination fee or penalty of any kind. The commitment fees payable to PFG5 for Tranche 1 and Tranche 2 are $142,500 and $45,000, respectively, with a back-end fees of up to a maximum of $1,900,000 for Tranche 1 and $600,000 for Tranche 2, in each case due and payable on the Maturity Date. On the Closing Date, in connection with the execution of the Restated Loan Agreement, the Company drew down on $9,500,000 of Tranche 1 credit available under the Restated Loan Agreement, of which $809,703 was drawn down by the Company for working capital purposes and $8,690,297 was paid by PFGV on behalf of the Company to SSVB in full satisfaction of all amounts due to SSVB, subject to the post-closing satisfaction of certain PRC regulatory approvals.

 

The loan obligations under the Restated Loan Agreement are guaranteed by the Company and BORQS International (each, a “Guarantor”, together with the Borrowers, the “Obligors”). On the Closing Date, each Obligor executed a deed of guarantee and indemnity agreement in favor of PFG5 (collectively, the “Guarantees”) to guarantee the payment and performance, and remedy of any default on demand, of each Obligor’s obligations under the Restated Loan Agreement. The Current PFG5 Loans under the Restated Loan Agreement are secured by all right, title and interest of the Obligors in and to all the tangible and intangible assets of each Obligor, including each Obligor’s share capital and equity interests in its subsidiaries, bank accounts and receivables and the Intellectual Property (as defined in the Restated Loan Agreement) of the Company’s subsidiaries, all of which are pledged as collateral to secure the payment and performance of the Obligors’ obligations under the Restated Loan Agreement. The Obligors have executed such security instruments, including pledges, debentures, mortgages, and share charges, to reflect the “all assets” security granted to PFG5 under the Restate Loan Agreement (collectively, the “Security Instruments”).

 

The Restated Loan Agreement includes customary representations and warranties and affirmative covenants, negative covenants and financial covenants, including the covenants to meet or exceed (i) quarterly revenues (as required to be classified as such under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) of $32,500,000 and (ii) a three month trailing EBITDA target of $2,000,000, with compliance for each covenant determined as of the last day of each calendar quarter for revenues and each calendar month for EBITDA (as defined in the Restated Loan Agreement).

Additionally, unless permitted under the Restated Loan Agreement or with the prior written consent of PFG5, the Obligors are prohibited from (i) acquiring any assets, except in the ordinary course of business, (ii) making any new investments other than certain permitted investments, (iii) transferring any part of its business or property except as permitted under the Restated Loan Agreement, (iv) guaranteeing or otherwise becoming liable with respect to the obligations of another party or entity, (v) making any loans of any money or other assets, other than certain permitted investments (vi) incurring any indebtedness, other than certain permitted indebtedness and (vii) certain other actions as described in greater detail in the Restated Loan Agreement.

 

An event of default under the Restated Loan Agreement includes, among other things, (i) any non-payment of monetary obligations when due, (ii) materially untrue or misleading representations, warranties, covenants, statements, reports or certificates made or delivered to PFG5 by the Obligors, (iii) failure by Borrower to comply with the financial covenants set forth in the Restated Loan Agreement and described above, (iv) breach by any Obligor of any of the covenants set forth in Section 4.6 of the Restated Loan Agreement, (v) a default or breach under the Restated Loan Agreement or any other related agreement that remains continuing after the applicable cure period, (vi) a bankruptcy of an Obligor or other assignment for the benefit of creditors, (vii) the occurrence of a change of control of any Obligor, and (viii) the occurrence of a “Material Adverse Change” as defined in the Restated Loan Agreement. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an event of default under the Restated Loan Agreement, and at any time thereafter, PFG5 may, among other things, without notice or demand, accelerate all outstanding amounts to become immediately due and payable. In addition, the interest rate on each Current PFG5 Loan would become the default rate which is defined in the Restated Loan Agreement to be the lesser of (i) the applicable interest rate set forth in the schedules to the Restated Loan Agreement, plus 6.0% per annum, and (ii) the maximum interest rate allowed to be charged to a commercial borrower under applicable usury laws.

 

The summary descriptions of the Restated Loan Agreement, Guarantees and Security Instruments do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the complete text of such agreements, copies of which and copies of other ancillary agreements relating to the transactions contemplated by the Restated Loan Agreement are filed as Exhibits 10.1 through 10.18 to this report and are incorporated herein by reference.
