ITEM 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On March 16, 2022, Troika Media Group, Inc. (“we,” “our,” “us,” or the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional investors (the “Purchasers”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell, in a private offering (the “Private Placement”), an aggregate of $50,000,000 of securities, consisting of shares of Series E convertible preferred stock of the Company, par value $.01 per share (the “Series E Preferred Stock”) and warrants (100% coverage) to purchase shares of Common Stock (collectively, the Series E Preferred Stock and Warrants are referred to as the “Securities”). Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company has agreed to sell 500,000 shares of its Series E Preferred Stock and Warrants to purchase up to 33,333,333 shares of the Company’s Common Stock. Each share of the Series E Preferred Stock will have a stated value of $100 per share and will be convertible after the closing date into shares of Common Stock at a conversion price of $1.50 per share, subject to adjustment. The Warrants will be exercisable immediately upon the date of issuance and have an exercise price of $2.00 per share, subject to adjustment. The Warrants will expire five years from the date of issuance.

 

The Purchase Agreement contained customary representations and warranties and agreements of the Company and the Purchasers and customary indemnification rights and obligations of the parties. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to certain restrictions on the issuance and sale of its shares of Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) during the 120-day period following the final Conversion Price Adjustment (as defined) following the effective date of a Registration Statement.

 

A holder (together with its affiliates) will not be able to convert any portion of the Series E Preferred Stock and/or exercise any portion of the Warrants to the extent that the holder would own more than 4.99% (or, at the holder’s option upon issuance, 9.99%) of the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock immediately after exercise. However, upon prior notice from the holder to the Company, a holder with a 4.99% ownership blocker may increase or decrease the amount of ownership of outstanding shares of Common Stock after converting the Series E Preferred Stock and/or exercising the holder’s Warrant up to 9.99% of the number of the Company’s shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the exercise, as such percentage ownership is determined in accordance with the terms of the Securities, provided that any increase shall not be effective until 61 days following notice to us. Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause a Registration Statement providing for the resale by holders of shares of its Securities and shares issuable upon the conversion of the Series E Preferred Stock and exercise of the Warrants, to be filed within ten (10) business days (the “Filing Date”) of the Closing Date (as defined) and shall use its best efforts to cause the Registration Statement to be declared effective no later than forty-five (45) days following the Filing Date or, in the case of a full review by the SEC, the 90th day following the Filing Date.

 

The Private Placement is expected to close on or about March 21, 2022. The Company will receive gross proceeds of $50,000,000 in connection with the Private Placement before deducting placement agent fees and other related offering expenses. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the private placement primarily for its previously announced acquisition of Converge Direct LLC, as well as for working capital purposes.

 

Pursuant to a letter agreement dated October 27, 2021 (the “Engagement Letter”), the Company engaged EF Hutton, division of Benchmark Investments, LLC (the “Placement Agent”) as exclusive Placement Agent in connection with the Private Placement. The Company agreed to pay to the Placement Agent a cash fee of eight (8%) percent and accountable and non‑accountable expenses.

The information contained above under “Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement” of this Report on Form 8-K in relation to the shares of Series E Preferred Stock and Warrants is incorporated herein by reference.

The Securities will be issued in reliance on the exemptions from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) under the Securities Act and Regulation D promulgated thereunder. As described above under Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, the Company will file a Registration Statement concerning the Securities within ten (10) business days of the Closing Date.
