Earlier this year, the Company successfully restructured its toxic convertible promissory Note in default since May of 2018 issued by Iliad Research & Trading, L.P., for $425,000.00 on October 20, 2017. The Note carried 22% percent inteest default interest and was convertible into common shares of Immune stock at a 60% discount to market.
The Note was purchased by Global Reverb Corp and a shareholder in November of 2020. The parties agreed to restructure the balance of $697,000 (reflecting the total principal, interest, and penalties) associated with the instrument. Under the terms of the restructuring, the lenders canceled the existing Iliad Note. Two new notes were issued; one to Global Reverb and one to the shareholder. The notes are for one year with a one-year extension bearing 5% interest. There is no conversion feature on the restructured balance.
The agreement provides for filing a 14A Proxy within 30 days of closing the agreement and funding. The 14A will provide for a new slate of 5 Directors and Officers. To appoint Turner & Stone LLP as auditors of the Company to hold office until the conclusion of the next general meeting at which accounts are laid before the Company. To conduct any other business properly brought before the Annual Meeting. The lenders will appoint two advisors to the Board until the shareholders during the transaction.
“The restructuring of the notes and funding is a significant achievement for the Company, and we are thankful that our existing lenders agreed that a restructuring would benefit the Company and its growth initiatives. The restructuring improved our balance sheet and was one of the critical next steps in our strategic plan as we are continually working and uplifting. We believe that the amendment of these notes and additional funding is a key accomplishment and that our current market cap does not accurately reflect the value of the Company and the emerging opportunity in biotech," stated Kevin Phelps, Company CEO.
On behalf of the Board of directors of Immune- many of whom are investing alongside you - thank you for your investment and continued shareholder support. We look forward to sharing our progress with you in the coming weeks.
