SECTION 1 - REGISTRANT’S BUSINESS AND OPERATIONS

 

ITEM 1.01 - ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT

 

On August 1, 2023, we issued a Promissory Note to an accredited investor in the principal amount of $265,000. We received $250,000 from the note after applying the original issue discount of $15,000 in the transaction. On August 9, 2023, we issued another Promissory Note to an accredited investor in the principal amount of $55,000. We received $50,000 from the note after applying the original issue discount of $5,000 in the transaction.

 

The maturity date for repayment of the principal on the above notes is three months from issuance. There is no penalty or premium for prepayments, but if we are in default, the interest rate is 18% per annum.

 

All principal on the notes is convertible at the investors’ option into our common stock in the next funding round which, if it occurs, is expected to be priced at approximately $.08 per share issued in a preferred stock with a 4% coupon with warrant coverage.

 

We were required to issue a total of 762,500 shares of our common stock in connection with the notes as commitment shares.

 

The issuance of the commitment shares and securities that may be issuable upon any conversion of the notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and therefore may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. For these issuances, the Company relied on the exemption from federal registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Act and/or Rule 506 promulgated thereunder, based on our belief that the offer and sale of such securities did not involve a public offering.

 

The foregoing description of the notes, and the transactions contemplated thereby does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the notes, which are included in this Current Report as Exhibits 4.1 and 4.2 and are incorporated herein by reference.

Exhibit 4.1

 

THIS PROMISSORY NOTE HAS NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR ANY STATE SECURITIES LAWS AND THIS NOTE, THE SECURITIES AND ANY INTEREST THEREIN MAY NOT BE OFFERED, SOLD, TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED OR OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER SUCH ACT OR SUCH LAWS OR AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER SUCH ACT AND SUCH LAWS, WHICH, IN THE OPINION OF COUNSEL FOR THE LENDER, WHICH COUNSEL AND OPINION ARE REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO COUNSEL FOR THIS COMPANY, IS AVAILABLE.

 

PROMISSORY NOTE

 

Principal Amount: $250,000

Original Interest Discount: $15,000

Total Note: $265,000

Effective Date: August 1, 2023

 

FOR VALUE RECEIVED, Resonate Blends, Inc., located at 26565 Agoura Road, Suite 200, Calabasas, CA 91302, (hereinafter referred to as “Borrower”), promises to pay to the order of ___________________________________(hereinafter referred to as “Lender”), the principal sum of $250,000, in lawful money of the United States of America, with interest thereon to be computed on the unpaid principal balance from time to time outstanding at the Applicable Interest Rate (hereinafter defined) (all duties and obligations of Borrower pursuant to this Note are hereinafter referred to as “Debt”).

 

1. PAYMENT OPTIONS

 

Borrower shall make payments due under this Promissory Note (“Note”) to Lender at the above captioned address, or such other address as Lender shall designate in writing. Payments will be applied first to accrued interest, then unpaid fees, and then principal. All principal and accrued interest shall be due and payable no later than the date three (3) months from the date of this Note (the “Maturity Date”). All amounts due under this Note shall be payable without setoff, counterclaim or any other deduction whatsoever. The Borrower can payoff this Note early with no prepayment penalties applied.

 

This Note has a personal guarantee for the full principal amount to Resonate Blends, Inc. by Darshan Vyas, Principal of Pegasus. Resonate Blends, Inc. in return will guarantee the Lender.

 

If the Lender would rather convert this Note into KOAN common stock in lieu of a complete payoff:

 

 

1 of 4

 
  

Initials _____

 

 

Conversion into Next Funding Round: The Lender can also choose to receive its payment in common stock of the Borrower. The Note will convert into common stock into the next funding round expected to be priced at $.08 per share issued in a Series Preferred (“Pref”) with a 4% coupon payable until the Pref is converted into common stock. A 2-year cash Warrant with 50% coverage priced at $.25 is also available as part of this conversion. If the note is converted into the proposed financing at $.08, this would equal 3,312,500 shares prior to any interest accrued from the Pref. If the financing terms are less than $.08, the Lender would also receive the lower price on the note conversion.

 

2. ORIGINAL INTEREST DISCOUNT (“OID”) & COMMITMENT SHARES

 

The Lender shall receive an OID of $15,000 immediately at the signing of this Note. The new Note amount will have a $265,000 payoff or the Lender can convert the $265,000 note into the next financing round as outlined in Section 1 of this note.

 

Commitment Shares: Lender shall receive 650,000 Commitment Shares issued at the signing of this Note for the $250,000 loan.

 

3. PREPAYMENT

 

This Note may be prepaid in whole at any time prior to the Maturity Date of this Note with all accrued interest due at the time of prepayment.

 

4. DEFAULT AND ACCELERATION

 

A breach under this Note shall constitute an “Event of Default.” So long as an Event of Default exists, Lender may, at its option, without notice or demand to Borrower, declare the Debt immediately due and payable. All remedies hereunder and at law or in equity shall be cumulative. In the event that it should become necessary to employ counsel to collect the Debt or to protect or foreclose the security for the Debt or to defend against any claims asserted by Borrower under this Note, Borrower also agrees to pay to Lender all costs of collection or defense incurred by Lender, including reasonable attorneys’ fees for the services of counsel whether or not suit be brought. During the occurrence of an Event of Default, Borrower shall pay interest on the entire unpaid principal sum at the rate equal to 18% per annum.

 

5. SAVINGS CLAUSE

 

This Note is subject to the express condition that at no time shall Borrower be obligated or required to pay interest on the principal balance due hereunder at a rate which could subject Lender to either civil or criminal liability as a result of being in excess of the maximum interest rate which Borrower is permitted by applicable law to contract or agree to pay. If by the terms of this Note, Borrower is at any time required or obligated to pay interest on the principal balance due hereunder at a rate in excess of such maximum rate, the Applicable Interest Rate or the Default Rate, as the case may be, shall be deemed to be immediately reduced to such maximum rate and all previous payments in excess of the maximum rate shall be deemed to have been payments in reduction of principal and not on account of the interest due hereunder. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to Lender for the use, forbearance, or detention of the Debt, shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated, and spread throughout the full stated term of this Note until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest on account of the Debt does not exceed the maximum lawful rate of interest from time to time in effect and applicable to the Debt for so long as the Debt is outstanding. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, it is not the intention of Lender to accelerate the maturity of any interest that has not accrued at the time of such acceleration or to collect unearned interest at the time of such acceleration.

7. NOTICES

 

Any notice or communication required or permitted hereunder shall be made in writing and given by facsimile, certified mail, hand delivery or overnight mail to the address provided herein, unless an alternative address is provided in writing.
