Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On February 10, 2021, Remark Holdings, Inc. (“Remark”, “we”, “us” or “our”) entered into a senior secured promissory note (the “Note”) with certain of our subsidiaries as guarantors (the “Guarantors”) and Jefferson Remark Funding LLC (the “Lender”), pursuant to which the Lender extended credit to us consisting of a one-year term loan in the principal amount of $5.0 million. The Note bears interest at 15% per annum, which shall be payable on the last business day of each calendar quarter commencing on March 31, 2021. The entire principal balance, as well as any unpaid accrued interest thereon, is due and payable in full on February 10, 2022. To secure the payment and performance of the obligations under the Note, we, together with the Guarantors, have granted to the Lender a first-priority lien on, and security interest in, all assets of Remark and the Guarantors, subject to certain customary exceptions. The Note contains representations, warranties, events of default, indemnifications and other provisions customary for financings of this type. The occurrence of any event of default under the Note may result in the principal amount outstanding and unpaid interest thereon becoming immediately due and payable.
The foregoing description of the Note does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety to the full text of the Note, which will be filed as an exhibit to our next periodic report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and is incorporated herein by reference.
