Item 1.01                       Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
Effective as of May 4, 2016, GrowLife, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into agreements with TCA Global Credit Master Fund, LP (“Lender”) whereby the parties restructured existing debt instruments. Descriptions of the agreements are below.
 
First Amendment to Amended and Restated Securities Purchase Agreement
 
Effective as of May 4, 2016, the Company, its subsidiaries and Lender entered into a First Amendment to Amended and Restated Securities Purchase Agreement whereby the parties agreed to amend the terms of their existing purchase agreement in exchange for forbearance on existing defaults by the Company.
 
Previously, the Company, its subsidiaries and Lender had entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement dated as of April 30, 2015, but made effective as of July 9, 2015, a Supplemental Securities Purchase Agreement effective as of August 6, 2015, and an Amended and Restated Securities Purchase Agreement dated as of October 27, 2015 (collectively, the “Purchase Agreement”) whereby the Company agreed to sell and Lender agreed to purchase an aggregate of $1,050,000 in original face amount of Senior, Secured, Convertible Redeemable Debentures.
 
Due to the Company being in default on its repayment obligations under the Purchase Agreement and related documents, the parties agreed to restructure the Purchase Agreement whereby Lender agreed to forbear from enforcement of the Company defaults and to restructure a payment schedule for repayment of Lender under the Purchase Agreement.
 
Specifically, the First Amendment to Amended and Restated Securities Purchase Agreement made the following material modifications to the existing Purchase Agreement:
 
The existing Debentures were modified as described in more detail below.
Payments on the Debentures shall be made by (1) certain debt purchase agreement(s) to be entered into by Lender, (2) under the parties S-1 transaction with Chicago Venture Partners, LP, or (3) by the Company directly.
Maturity Date extended to April 28, 2018.
Lender agreed that it shall not enforce and shall forbear from pursuing enforcement of any existing defaults by the Company unless and until a future Company default occurs.
 
The description of the First Amendment to Amended and Restated Securities Purchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the agreement, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibits 10.1.
 
Second Replacement Debentures A and B
 
In connection with the First Amendment to Amended and Restated Securities Purchase Agreement, the parties also agreed upon amended terms related to their outstanding Debentures.
 
Effective as of May 4, 2016, the Company issued Second Replacement Debenture A in the principal amount of $150,000 and Second Replacement Debenture B in the principal amount of $2,681,209.82 (collectively, the “Second Replacement Debentures”).
 
Per the First Amendment to Amended and Restated Securities Purchase Agreement, the Second Replacement Debentures were combined, and apportioned into two separate replacement debentures. The Second Replacement Debentures were intended to act in substitution for and to supersede the Debentures in their entirety. It was the intent of the Company and Lender that while the Second Replacement Debentures replace and supersede the Debentures, in their entirety, they were not in payment or satisfaction of the Debentures, but rather were the substitute of one evidence of debt for another without any intent to extinguish the old.
 
 
 
 
The Second Replacement Debentures contemplate Lender entering into debt purchase agreement(s) with third parties whereby Lender may, at its election, sever, split, divide or apportion the Second Replacement Debentures to accomplish the repayment of the balanced owed to Lender by Company.
 
The Second Replacement Debenture are convertible at 85% of the lowest daily volume weighted average price (“VWAP”) of the Company’s common stock during the five (5) business days immediately prior to a conversion date.
 
In connection with the above agreements, the parties acknowledged and agreed that certain advisory fees previously paid to Lender as provided in the Purchase Agreement in the amount of $1,500,000 have been added and included within the principal balance of the Second Replacement Debentures. The conversion price discount on the Second Replacement Debentures will not apply to the amount of advisory fees added to the Second Replacement Debentures. Lender is also surrendering its Series B Preferred Stock in exchange for the $1,500,000 balance evidenced by said preferred stock being added to the Second Replacement Debenture.
 
The description of the Second Replacement Debentures are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the agreements, copies of which are attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibits 10.2, and 10.3, respectively.
