NOTE 6. SENIOR SECURED NOTES - RELATED PARTY
 
On October 11, 2013, the Company issued a Consolidated, Amended and Restated Promissory Note to Niobe in the principal amount of $9,219,366 (the “Consolidated Note”).  The face amount of the Consolidated Note reflects the $9.0 million aggregate principal amount of outstanding secured notes then held by Niobe (the “Secured Notes”) plus interest accrued at 3% per annum on each note from its respective date of issuance.  The terms of the Consolidated Note were identical to the Secured Notes except that: (a) the maturity date was changed to September 1, 2015, which was after the latest maturity date of any of the Secured Notes; and (b) it provided for partial mandatory repayment in the event that the Company received aggregate gross proceeds in excess of $7.5 million from a single or multiple “Liquidity Events” in an amount equal to twenty-five (25%) percent of such gross proceeds (the “Mandatory Prepayment Amount”).  A “Liquidity Event” means (a) the sale of any of the Company’s equity, or equity-linked, securities, and (b) the receipt of proceeds, directly or indirectly related to a development and/or commercialization relationship entered into with an unaffiliated third party. In the Secured Notes, the entire principal amount of each note was due, at Niobe’s election, upon the consummation of an equity financing of $7.5 million or greater.  Consistent with the terms of the Secured Notes and related security agreements entered into, the Company’s obligations under the Consolidated Note are secured by a first priority perfected security interest in all of the Company’s assets pursuant to a Consolidated, Amended and Restated Security Agreement dated October 11, 2013.
 
On November 4, 2014, the Company entered into a new Credit Facility Agreement (the “2014 Credit Facility Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company may borrow up to an additional $5.0 Million from Niobe, in the form of secured loans, at any time prior to December 31, 2015 (the “2014 Credit Facility”). Each loan made to the Company by Niobe under the 2014 Credit Facility Agreement has been represented by a senior secured promissory note bearing interest at a rate of 3% per annum which matures on September 1, 2016 (each an “Original Note”). The obligations of the Company pursuant to each Original Note have been secured by a first priority perfected security interest in all of the assets of the Company pursuant to the Second Consolidated, Amended and Restated Security Agreement between the Company and Niobe, entered into at the same time as the 2014 Credit Facility Agreement (the “Security Agreement”).
 
In addition, on November 4, 2014, the Company entered into a Note Modification Agreement (the “Note Modification Agreement”) with Niobe pursuant to which the Consolidated Note was further amended to increase the threshold amount requiring a Mandatory Prepayment from $7.5 Million to more than $10 Million. As a result, partial prepayment will now be triggered in the event of a Liquidity Event in which the Company receives gross proceeds in excess of $10 million. All other terms and provisions of the Consolidated Note remained unchanged and in full force and effect.
 
On December 1, 2015, the 2014 Credit Facility was amended to increase the funds available for loans to the Company to $7.5 million and to extend the expiration date of such credit facility to December 31, 2016 pursuant to which the Company and Niobe entered into and an Amended and Restated 2014 Credit Facility Agreement (the “Amended and Restated Agreement”). Each loan under the Amended and Restated Agreement has been and will be represented by a senior secured promissory note bearing interest at a rate of 3% per annum which matures on September 1, 2017 (each a “New Note”). In addition, the Security Agreement was also amended and restated to secure the Company’s obligations under all the Original Notes and all the New Notes.
 
On June 30, 2016, the 2014 Credit Facility was again amended to increase the funds available for loans to the Company to $9.0 million (the “Second Amended and Restated Agreement”). Each loan under the Second Amended and Restated Agreement has been represented by a New Note. In addition, the Security Agreement was also amended and restated to secure the Company’s obligations under all the notes issued and outstanding under the 2014 Credit Facility as of June 30, 2016 and all the New Notes issued pursuant to the Second Amended and Restated Agreement.
 
On August 31, 2016, the Company and Niobe agreed to extend the maturity date of the Consolidated Note and the maturity dates of all thirteen outstanding Original Notes with an aggregate principal amount of $5,030,000, from September 1, 2016 to September 1, 2017. All other terms and provisions of the Consolidated Note and Original Notes remained unchanged and in full force and effect.
 
On October 31, 2016, the 2014 Credit Facility was amended to increase the funds available for loans to the Company to $11.25 million and to extend the expiration date of such facility to June 15, 2017 (the “Third Amended and Restated Agreement”). Each loan under the Third Amended and Restated Agreement will be represented by a senior secured promissory note bearing interest at a rate of 3% per annum which matures on March 31, 2018 (each a “2018 Note”). The Security Agreement was also amended and restated to secure the Company’s obligations under all the notes issued under the 2014 Credit Facility as of October 31, 2016 and all the 2018 Notes. In addition, the Company and Niobe also agreed to extend to March 31, 2018, the maturity dates of the Consolidated Note and all the notes issued and outstanding under the 2014 Credit Facility as of October 31, 2016.
 
As of May 31, 2017, the outstanding principal balance under the 2014 Credit Facility totaled $11,080,000. During the year ended May 31, 2017, the Company borrowed an aggregate of $3,980,000.
 
On June 1, 2017, the 2014 Credit Facility was amended to increase the funds available for loans to the Company to $13.05 million and to extend the expiration date of such facility to March 31, 2018 (the “Fourth Amended and Restated Agreement”). Each loan under the Fourth Amended and Restated Agreement will be represented by a 2018 Note. The Security Agreement was also amended and restated to also secure the Company’s obligations under all 2018 Notes issued pursuant to the Fourth Amended and Restated Agreement.
 
On June 15, 2017, July 10, 2017 and August 10, 2017, the Company borrowed $290,000, $290,000 and $290,000, respectively, under the 2014 Credit Facility pursuant to the Fourth Amended and Restated Agreement and issued Niobe a new 2018 Note for each borrowing in the same principal amount of each loan.
 
On August 22, 2017, the Company and Niobe agreed to extend the maturity date of all outstanding notes issued to Niobe from the current maturity date of March 31, 2018 to a new maturity date of September 1, 2018.  All other terms and provisions of such notes remained unchanged and in full force and effect.
 
As of August 31, 2017, the outstanding principal balance under the 2014 Credit Facility totaled $11,950,000. During the three months ended August 31, 2017, the Company borrowed an aggregate of $870,000; $290,000 on June 15, 2017, $290,000 on July 10, 2017, and $290,000 on August 10, 2017. Payment of the principal and accrued interest on all outstanding notes issued under the 2014 Credit Facility will, at Niobe’s election, automatically become immediately due and payable if the Company undertakes certain Fundamental Transactions or upon an Event of Default, both as defined in such notes. The Company’s obligations under all such notes are secured by the Security Agreement, as amended.
