Item 1.01.
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
On January 29, 2014, Remark Media, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a Senior Secured Convertible Term Note in the original principal amount of $3,500,000 (the “January 2014 Note”) to Digipac, LLC (“Digipac”) in exchange for $3,500,000 in cash.  The January 2014 Note bears interest at a rate of 6.67% per annum for the first year and 8.67% per annum thereafter, with interest payable quarterly and all unpaid principal and any accrued but unpaid interest due and payable on the second anniversary of its issuance.  The Company may prepay all or a portion of the January 2014 Note at any time upon at least 15 days’ prior written notice to Digipac.  The Company’s issuance of the January 2014 Note was authorized and approved by the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), as well as by the full Board.
 
At the time of the issuance of the January 2014 Note, Digipac held 3,556,672 shares of the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”) and approximately an additional 675,925 shares of the Common Stock were issuable upon the conversion of the unpaid principal and accrued but unpaid interest under a Senior Secured Convertible Term Note of the Company dated November 13, 2013 in the original principal amount of $2,500,000 held by Digipac.  Kai-Shing Tao, the Company’s Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, is the manager and a member of Digipac, and as a result has the power to vote and dispose of the securities held by Digipac.  Douglas Osrow, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, also is a member of Digipac.
 
At any time, Digipac may elect to convert all or any portion of the outstanding principal amount and accrued but unpaid interest under the January 2014 Note into shares of Common Stock at a conversion price of $5.03 per share (the “Conversion Price”).  The Company also may elect to convert all or any portion of the outstanding principal amount and accrued but unpaid interest under the January 2014 Note into Common Stock at the Conversion Price if the volume weighted average price of the Common Stock is equal to at least 150% of the Conversion Price for at least 30 of the 40 trading days immediately prior to the date of the Company’s election.  The January 2014 Note also provides that the Company and Digipac will negotiate and enter into a registration rights agreement providing Digipac with demand and piggyback registration rights with respect to the shares of Common Stock underlying the January 2014 Note.
 
The foregoing description of the January 2014 Note is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the January 2014 Note, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 4.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
 
On January 29, 2014, in connection with the issuance of the January 2014 Note, the Company and Digipac entered into Amendment Number Three to Security Agreement (the “Third Amendment”).  The Third Amendment amends that certain Security Agreement dated as of November 23, 2012 by and between the Company and Digipac (the “Security Agreement”) to include the Company’s obligations under the January 2014 Note as obligations secured by the Security Agreement.  The Security Agreement provides that the Company’s obligations are secured by all assets of the Company other than the shares of common stock of Sharecare, Inc. owned by the Company.
 
 
 

 
 
The foregoing description of the Third Amendment is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Third Amendment, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

Senior Secured Convertible Term Note
 
$ 3,500,000  
January 29, 2014

FOR VALUE RECEIVED, REMARK MEDIA, INC., a Delaware corporation (“Borrower”), hereby promises to pay to the order of DIGIPAC, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Lender”), the principal sum of Three and One Half Million Dollars ($3,500,000) (the “Principal Amount”), in lawful money of the United States of America and in immediately available funds.
 
1.           Maturity.  The unpaid Principal Amount plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon shall be due and payable on the second anniversary of the date of this Note (the “Maturity Date”), unless converted prior thereto pursuant to Section 4, which Maturity Date may be extended only pursuant to a writing signed by Borrower and Lender.
 
2.           Interest.  Borrower further promises to pay interest on the unpaid Principal Amount of this Note at a rate per annum equal to six and 67/100 percent (6.67%) for the first year of this Note.  For the period commencing January 25, 2015 and thereafter Borrower further promises to pay interest on the unpaid Principal Amount of this Note at a rate per annum equal to eight and 67/100 percent (8.67%).  Interest will be computed on the basis of a 365 or 366-day year, as applicable, and the actual number of days elapsed.  Interest shall be payable quarterly in arrears to Lender on the last day of each quarter commencing on the first such date to occur after the execution of this Note.
 
3.           Prepayment.  Borrower may prepay this Note, in full or in part, at any time prior to the Maturity Date if, and only if, Borrower provides Lender at least fifteen (15) days’ prior written notice of such prepayment.
 
4.           Conversion of the Note.
 
 
4.1
Subject to and upon compliance with the terms and provisions of this Note, at any time Lender or Borrower (subject to the requirements of Section 4.3) shall have the right to convert the unpaid Principal Amount of, and interest due under, this Note into shares of common stock of Borrower as set forth below.
 
 
(a)
At any time on or prior to the Maturity Date (or after the Maturity Date if Borrower has failed to timely repay the unpaid Principal Amount plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon on the terms of this Note), Lender shall have the option, upon Lender’s written notice to Borrower, (or Borrower shall have the option, upon Borrower’s written notice to Lender) to elect to convert the outstanding and unpaid Principal Amount or any portion thereof, plus, at Lender’s election (or at Borrower’s election if the Borrower elected to convert), any accrued and unpaid interest thereon (collectively, the “Conversion Amount”), into fully paid and non-assessable shares of the common stock (“Common Stock”) of Borrower at the Common Stock Conversion Price (as defined in Section 4.1(c)) (the “Common Stock Conversion”).  To the extent that the entire amount due under the Note is not converted into Common Stock, the Borrower will deliver a new note with similar terms and conditions as this Note which will reflect the remaining amounts owed to Lender under this Note.
 
 
 

 
 
 
(b)
The number of shares of Common Stock to be issued upon conversion of this Note pursuant to this Section 4.1 shall be determined by dividing (i) the Conversion Amount by (ii) the Common Stock Conversion Price.  Borrower shall issue and deliver to Lender certificates or cause book entries to be made by its transfer agent evidencing such Common Stock within five (5) business days after the Common Stock Conversion.
 
 
(c)
The “Common Stock Conversion Price” shall be equal to $5.03.
 
 
(d)
Borrower will reserve from its authorized and unissued Common Stock a sufficient number of shares to provide for the issuance of Common Stock upon the full conversion of this Note.
 
 
(e)
The number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of Lender’s and Borrower’s conversion rights contained in this Section 4.1 shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the happening of certain events, as follows:
 
(i)           Splits and Subdivisions.  If Borrower should at any time or from time to time prior to any conversion in accordance with this Section 4.1 (the “Conversion Date”), if any, fix a record date for the effectuation of a split or subdivision of the outstanding shares of Common Stock or the determination of the holders of Common Stock entitled to receive a dividend or other distribution payable in additional shares of Common Stock or other securities or rights convertible into, or entitling the holder thereof to receive directly or indirectly, additional shares of Common Stock (hereinafter referred to as “Common Stock Equivalents”) without payment of any consideration by such holder for the additional shares of Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents, then, as of such record date (or the date of such distribution, split or subdivision if no record date is fixed), the Common Stock Conversion Price shall be proportionately decreased and the number of shares of Common Stock which this Note is convertible into pursuant to this Section 4.1 shall be appropriately increased in proportion to such increase of outstanding shares.
 
 
2

 
 
(ii)           Combination of Shares.  If prior to the Conversion Date, if any, the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding at any time after the date hereof is decreased by a combination of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, the Common Stock Conversion Price shall be proportionately increased and the number of shares of Common Stock which this Note is convertible into pursuant to this Section 4.1 shall be appropriately decreased in proportion to such decrease in outstanding shares.
 
(iii)           Merger or Consolidation.  If at any time or from time to time prior to the Conversion Date, if any, there shall be a capital reorganization of Borrower’s equity securities (other than a subdivision, combination, reclassification or exchange of shares provided for elsewhere in this Section 4.1(e)) or a merger or consolidation of Borrower with or into another corporation, then as a part of such reorganization, merger or consolidation, provision shall be made so that Lender shall thereafter exclusively be entitled to receive upon the conversion of this Note in accordance with this Section 4.1, the number of shares of stock or other securities or other property (including, if applicable, cash) (or any combination thereof) to which a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock (or of any shares of stock or other securities or other property (including, if applicable, cash) (or any combination thereof) which may be) issuable upon the conversion of this Note pursuant to this Section 4.1 would have received if this Note had been converted into Common Stock in accordance with this Section 4.1 immediately prior to such reorganization, merger or consolidation.
 
(iv)           Reclassification, Conversion or Reorganization.  If the Common Stock (or any shares of stock or other securities which may be) issuable upon the conversion of this Note in accordance with this Section 4.1 shall be changed into the same or different number of shares of any class or classes of stock, whether by capital reorganization, conversion, reclassification or otherwise (other than a subdivision or combination of shares or stock dividend provided for in clauses (i) or (ii) of this Section 4.1(e) above, or a reorganization, merger or consolidation provided for in clause (iii) of this Section 4.1(e) above), then and in each such event Lender shall exclusively be entitled to receive upon the conversion of this Note pursuant to this Section 4.1 the kind and amount of shares of stock or other securities or other property (including, if applicable, cash) (or any combination thereof) upon such reorganization, conversion, reclassification or other change, to which a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock (or of any shares of stock or other securities or other property (including, if applicable, cash) (or any combination thereof) which may be) issuable upon the conversion of this Note pursuant to this Section 4.1 would have received if this Note had been converted into Common Stock pursuant to this Section 4.1 immediately prior to such reorganization, conversion, reclassification or other change, all subject to further adjustment as provided herein.
 
(v)           Notice of Adjustments and Record Dates.  Borrower shall promptly notify Lender in writing of each adjustment or readjustment of the Common Stock Conversion Price hereunder and the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of this Note pursuant to this Section 4.1.  Such notice shall state the adjustment or readjustment and show in reasonable detail the facts on which that adjustment or readjustment is based.  In the event of any taking by Borrower of a record of the holders of Common Stock for the purpose of determining the holders thereof who are entitled to receive any dividend or other distribution, Borrower shall notify Lender in writing of such record date at least twenty (20) days prior to the date specified therein.
 
 
3

 
 
(vi)           No Impairment.  Borrower shall not avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed hereunder by Borrower, but shall at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all the provisions of this Note.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Borrower (i) shall reserve and keep available a number of its authorized shares of Common Stock, free from all preemptive rights, which shall be sufficient to permit the conversion of this Note in accordance with this Section 4.1 and (ii) shall take all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order that all shares of Common Stock as may be issued pursuant to the conversion of this Note in accordance with this Section 4.1 shall, upon issuance, be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.
 
 
4.2
Method of Conversion.  This Note may be converted by Lender or Borrower only as described in this Section 4.  Lender agrees to deliver the original of this Note (or an affidavit to the effect that this Note has been lost, stolen or destroyed and an agreement acceptable to Borrower whereby Lender agrees to indemnify Borrower from any loss incurred by it in connection with this Note) upon the Common Stock Conversion for cancellation.  Furthermore, Lender hereby agrees to execute and deliver to Borrower all transaction documents reasonably requested by Borrower in connection with the Common Stock Conversion, including a subscription agreement and other ancillary agreements (if requested), with customary representations and warranties and transfer restrictions.
 
 
4.3
Additional Requirement for Conversion by Borrower.  The Borrower may not elect to have this Note converted into Common Stock pursuant to Section 4.1 of this Note unless the VWAP (as hereinafter defined) for the Borrower’s Common Stock is at least 150% of the Common Stock Conversion Price for at least 30 out of the 40 trading days immediately prior to the date that the Borrower elects to convert. For the purposes of this Note, VWAP means, for any date, the daily volume weighted average price of the Company’s Common Stock for such date (or the nearest preceding date on which the Common Stock actually traded) on the Nasdaq-CM, or such other trading market on which the Common Stock is then listed or quoted, as reported by NASDAQ VWAP.

6.6
Restricted Securities.  Lender understands that the securities are characterized as “restricted securities” under the U.S. federal securities laws inasmuch as they are being acquired from the Borrower in a transaction not involving a public offering and that under such laws and applicable regulations such securities may be resold without registration under the 1933 Act only in certain limited circumstances.
 
 
6.7

Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default described in Sections 7.3, 7.4 or 7.5 (any such Event of Default, an “Insolvency Event”) (i) all amounts payable by Borrower pursuant to this Note shall become immediately due and payable, without presentment, demand, notice, protest or other requirements of any kind (all of which are hereby expressly waived by Borrower) and (ii) Lender shall be entitled to exercise any and all remedies available to Lender at law or in equity.
 
 
8

 
 
 
8.2
Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default other than an Insolvency Event, (i) Lender may, by written notice to Borrower, declare all amounts payable by Borrower pursuant to this Note to be due and payable, and all such amounts shall immediately become due and payable and (ii) Lender shall be entitled to exercise any and all remedies available to Lender at law or in equity.  Written notice pursuant to this clause (b) shall be sufficient if it is addressed to Borrower and states that such an Event of Default has occurred and Lender is providing notice that all amounts due and payable pursuant to this Note are immediately due and payable in accordance with this clause (b).
 
9.           Default Interest.  Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an “Event of Default,” interest shall accrue on the unpaid Principal Amount at the rate of interest specified in Section 2 PLUS three percent (3%) per annum, or such lower maximum amount of interest permitted to be charged under applicable law.
