(2) Pursuant to the “Share and warrant purchase agreement” described below, warrants to buy 7,000 common shares were exercised in June 2017.
Share and warrant purchase agreement
As previously reported, the Company on February 8, 2017 entered into a Share and Warrant Purchase Agreement pursuant to which it sold for $5 million an aggregate of 5 million of its common shares, par value $0.004 per share and warrants to purchase 25 million of its common shares at a price of $1.60 per share to a number of investors in a private placement. These securities were issued in transactions exempt from registration under the Securities Act. On February 9, 2017, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement with those purchasers providing them with certain rights relating to registration under the Securities Act of the Shares and the common shares underlying the Warrants.
In connection with the closing of the February 2017 private placement, the Company also entered into two loan amendment agreements with existing lenders.
One loan amendment agreement was entered into by the Company with Firment Trading Limited (“Firment”), an affiliate of the Company’s chairman, and the lender of the Firment Credit Facility, which then had an outstanding principal amount of $18,524. Firment released an amount equal to $16,885 (but left an amount equal to $1,639 outstanding, which continued to accrue interest under the Firment Credit Facility as though it were principal) of the Firment Credit Facility and the Company issued to Firment Shipping Inc., an affiliate of Firment, 16,885,000 common shares and a warrant to purchase 6,230,580 common shares at a price of $1.60 per share. Subsequent to the closing of the February 2017 private placement, Globus repaid the outstanding amount on the Firment Credit Facility in its entirety. The Firment Credit Facility expired on April 12, 2017.
The other loan amendment agreement was entered into by the Company with Silaner Investments Limited (“Silaner”), an affiliate of the Company’s chairman, and the lender of the Silaner Credit Facility. Silaner released an amount equal to the outstanding principal of $3,115 (but left an amount equal to $74 outstanding, which continued to accrue interest under the Silaner Credit Facility as though it were principal) of the Silaner Credit Facility and the Company issued to Firment Shipping Inc., an affiliate of Silaner, 3,115,000 common shares and a warrant to purchase 1,149,437 common shares at a price of $1.60 per share. Subsequent to the closing of the February 2017 private placement, Globus repaid the outstanding amount on the Silaner Credit Facility in its entirety. The Silaner Credit Facility remains available to the Company until January 12, 2018.
Each of the above mentioned warrants are exercisable for 24 months after their respective issuance. Under the terms of the warrants, all warrant holders (other than Firment Shipping Inc., which has no such restriction in its warrants) may not exercise their warrants to the extent such exercise would cause such warrant holder, together with its affiliates and attribution parties, to beneficially own a number of common shares which would exceed 4.99% (which may be increased, but not to exceed 9.99%) of the Company’s then outstanding common shares immediately following such exercise, excluding for purposes of such determination common shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants which have not been exercised. This provision does not limit a warrant holder from acquiring up to 4.99% of the Company’s common shares, selling all of their common shares, and re-acquiring up to 4.99% of the Company’s common shares.
