The Company accounted for the amendment as a modification of debt and as a result, extended the amortization of the deferred financing fees of the original note over the remaining term of the amended agreement. In addition, the Company recorded additional deferred financing fees as a result of the issuance of shares of common stock with a per share value of $ in conjunction with the amendment.
On July 22, 2022, as required by the March 9, 2022 amendment to the July 2021 Note, the Company made a cash payment of $33,115,000, comprised of $33,000,000 of principal repayment and $115,000 of interest, to the note holder.
On August 18, 2022, as a result of the Company being in default on its existing senior secured convertible note, the Company was required to purchase a portion of the outstanding Note. The Company purchased $55,000,000 of the principal amount of the note for $65,000,000 in cash. The Company was permitted to release $70,000,000 of its restricted cash with $65,000,000 for the repurchase of the debt and $5,000,000 to unrestricted cash. The Company assessed the transaction and concluded the transaction was an in substance extinguishment. Accordingly, the Company treated the additional $10,000,000 cash paid as a premium to extinguish the $55,000,000 of principal and recorded it within Loss on extinguishment. As the transaction is being accounted for as an extinguishment, the Company recorded a $27,235,055 non-cash loss on extinguishment related to the full extinguishment of unamortized deferred financing fees. As a result of the Company’s purchase of a portion of the outstanding Note, the Company is no longer in default.
