Under the terms of the Note, the Note will not bear interest and the principal amount of the Note will not accrete. The Note will mature on February 14, 2025; however, the Company, at its sole discretion, may elect to extend the date of maturity by an additional year until February 14, 2026 and may further elect to extend the date of maturity by another additional year until February 14, 2027, each time by providing the holder with 90 days’ notice. The Note is convertible, in whole or in part at the option of the holder at any time prior to the Company’s repayment of the principal amount of the Note in full, into the Company’s ordinary shares at an initial conversion price of $10.30 per share, subject to certain customary anti-dilution adjustments. The conversion price will decrease by $1 per share (as adjusted commensurate with any anti-dilution adjustments to the Conversion Rate prior to such time) for each year the maturity is extended. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the financing for general corporate purposes.
Lynrock Lake has not requested a board seat, and its conversion of the Note is subject to an initial ownership limitation of 19.99% of the Company’s ordinary shares outstanding immediately after any such conversion, which may be decreased upon notice or increased to 24.99% upon 61 days’ notice from Lynrock Lake.
