Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.


On October 29, 2018, Achaogen, Inc. (the “Company”) borrowed $25.0 million (the “Term B Loan”) under its existing Loan and Security Agreement with Silicon Valley Bank dated as of February 26, 2018 (the “Loan Agreement”).  As previously disclosed, the Company borrowed $25.0 million under the Loan Agreement on the date of the Loan Agreement (the “Term A Loan,” and together with the Term B Loan, the “Term Loans”).  The Term B Loan has a maturity of four years and bears interest through maturity at a floating per annum rate equal to the greater of (a) 1.00% above the prime rate and (b) 5.50%. No borrowings remain available to the Company under the Loan Agreement.


The Company is permitted to make interest-only payments on the Term B Loan for the first twenty-four (24) months following the borrowing date after which the Company will be required to repay the Term B Loan in 24 consecutive equal monthly installments of principal. The Company is obligated to pay a fee equal to 6.00% of the Term Loans upon the earliest to occur of the maturity date, the prepayment or repayment of the Term B Loan or the termination of the Loan Agreement. The Company may voluntarily prepay all, but not less than all, of the outstanding Term Loans. The Loan Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants.


The Company is required to have cash on deposit at Silicon Valley Bank equal to the greater of (a) $48.0 million and (b) the “Monthly Cash Burn,” which is defined as the difference of (1)(i) net loss plus (ii) unfinanced capital expenditures minus (2)(i) depreciation and amortization expenses, (ii) non-cash stock compensation expense and (iii) other non-cash expenses as approved by Silicon Valley Bank. If at any time the Company’s aggregate balances at Silicon Valley Bank are less than the foregoing, the Company is required to deposit at Silicon Valley Bank cash collateral in an amount equal to the outstanding Term A Loan. The Term Loans are secured by substantially all of the Company’s assets, except for its intellectual property which is subject to a negative pledge and certain other customary exclusions.
