Private Placement of Senior Convertible Notes and Warrants

On July 8, 2020, Blue Hat Interactive Entertainment Technology (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”) with two accredited institutional investors (each a “Holder” and collectively the “Holders”) to sell senior secured convertible notes (the “Convertible Notes”) of the Company in a private placement (the “Private Placement”) to the Holders, in the aggregate principal amount of $3,262,000, together with the issuance of warrants (the “Warrants” and, together with the Convertible Notes, the “Securities”) to acquire up to 784,000 ordinary shares of the Company (the “Ordinary Shares”) for an aggregate cash purchase price of $2,800,000 (reflecting an original issue discount of $462,000).

FT Global Capital, Inc. is acting as the sole placement agent (the “Placement Agent”) in the Private Placement. The Placement Agent will receive a placement agent fee representing 8.0% of the gross cash proceeds at the closing. Upon closing of the sale of the Convertible Notes and the Warrants (the “Closing”), the Company is expected to receive gross cash proceeds of $2.8 million. The Company will receive approximately $2.4 million in net proceeds at Closing, after deducting placement agent fees payable to the Placement Agent and certain other transaction expenses, including expenses of counsel in connection with the transaction.

The following descriptions of the SPA, Convertible Notes, Warrants, Shareholder Pledge Agreement, Registration Rights Agreement and Voting Agreement are not complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such agreements, the forms of which are attached as Exhibit 99.1 through 99.6 to this Form 6-K.

This report on Form 6-K does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to purchase the Convertible Notes or the Warrants.

Convertible Notes

 

The Convertible Notes mature on October 30, 2021 (subject to extension in certain circumstances, including bankruptcy and outstanding events of default). The following is a brief description of the terms of the Convertible Notes:

 

Interest

 

The Convertible Notes do not bear interest except upon the occurrence of an Event of Default (as described below and as defined in the Convertible Notes), in which event the applicable rate will be 15.00% per annum.

 

Amortization

 

Starting on October 15, 2020, then on October 30, 2020 and then on the last trading day of the month for each month thereafter, and on the maturity date (each, an “Installment Date”), unless deferred or accelerated as described below, the Company is required to make monthly amortization payments equal to 1/12th of the initial principal and interest of the Convertible Notes payable (the “Installment Amount”), which, subject to the satisfaction of certain equity conditions set forth in the Convertible Note, shall be satisfied in Ordinary Shares (each, an “Installment Conversion”) at a conversion price equal to the lower of (i) the conversion price then in effect and (ii) the greater of (x) $0.264 (the “Floor Price”) and (y) the lower of (A) 85% of the volume weighted average price in the trading day immediately preceding the applicable Installment Date and (B) 85% of the average of the volume weighted average price of the three trading days with the lowest volume weighted average price during the 20 trading days prior to and including the trading day immediately prior to the applicable Installment Date or, at the Company’s option, may be satisfied in cash at a redemption price equal to 105% of such Installment Amount (each, an “Installment Redemption”). Shares to be issued with respect to any such installment will be predelivered on the second (2nd) trading day after the applicable Installment Notice Date (as defined in the Convertible Note) with a true-up on the applicable Installment Date.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Holder may, at its sole option, elect to defer any Installment Amount until a subsequent Installment Date selected by the Holder and may also elect to accelerate the conversion of future Installment Amounts to the current Installment Date, so long as such accelerated amount does not exceed four times any applicable Installment Amount.

Conversion; Alternate Conversion upon Event of Default

 

The Convertible Notes are convertible at any time or times after the issuance date in whole or in part, at the option of the Holders thereof, into Ordinary Shares at a conversion price of $1.25 per share (the “Conversion Price”). The Conversion Price is subject to full ratchet antidilution protection upon any subsequent transaction at a price lower than the conversion price then in effect and standard adjustments in the event of share split, share dividend, share combination, recapitalization or other similar transaction, as further provided in the Convertible Notes.

 

If an Event of Default has occurred under the Convertible Notes, the Holders may elect to alternatively convert their Convertible Notes (including the 15% premium that would otherwise be payable in a cash acceleration thereof) at an alternate conversion price equal to the lower of (i) the conversion price then in effect and (ii) the greater of (x) the Floor Price and (y) the lower of (A) 80% of the volume weighted average price as of the trading day immediately preceding the delivery or the deemed delivery of the applicable conversion notice, (B) 80% of the volume weighted average price as of the trading day of the delivery or deemed delivery of the applicable conversion notice, and (C) 80% of the average of the lowest volume weighted average price of the three trading days with the lowest volume weighted average price during the 20 trading days prior to and including the trading day immediately preceding the delivery or deemed delivery of the applicable conversion notice.

The Holders of the Convertible Notes will not have the right to convert any portion of the Convertible Notes, to the extent that, after giving effect to such conversion, such Holder (together with certain related parties) would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the Ordinary Shares outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion, as to be elected by such Holder on or prior to the Closing Date (as defined in the SPA). A Holder may from time to time increase this limit to 9.99%, as to be elected by such Holder on or prior to the Closing Date, provided that any such increase will not be effective until the 61st day after delivery of a notice to the Company of such increase.

Events of Default

 

The Convertible Notes includes certain customary Events of Default, including, among other things, the breach of the financial covenant described in “—Covenants” below, the termination of either Xiaodong Chen, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, by the Company for any reason, and if Jolie Kahn ceases to be the Company’s financial advisory.

 

In connection with an Event of Default, the holders of the Convertible Notes may require the Company to redeem any or all of the Convertible Notes. The redemption price will equal the greater of (i) the product of (A) the Conversion Amount to be redeemed multiplied by (B) 115% and (ii) the product of (X) the Conversion Rate with respect to the Conversion Amount in effect at such time as the Holder delivers an Event of Default Redemption Notice multiplied by (Y) the product of (1) 115% multiplied by (2) the greatest Closing Sale Price of the Ordinary Shares on any trading day during the period commencing on the date immediately preceding such Event of Default and ending on the date the Company makes the entire payment required, as determined in accordance with the Convertible Notes.

 

Upon the occurrence of a Bankruptcy Event of Default (as defined in the Convertible Notes), the Convertible Notes would automatically become immediately due and payable in cash in an amount equal to all outstanding principal, interest, and late charges multiplied by a redemption premium of 115%.

 

Change of Control

 

In connection with a Change of Control (as defined in the Convertible Notes), the Holders of the Convertible Notes may require the Company to redeem all or any portion of the Convertible Notes. The redemption price per share will equal the greatest of (i) 115% of the outstanding principal of the Convertible Notes to be redeemed, and accrued and unpaid interest and unpaid late charges thereon, (ii) 115% of the market value of the Ordinary Shares underlying the Convertible Notes, as determined in accordance with the Convertible Notes, and (iii) 115% of the aggregate cash consideration that would have been payable in respect of the Ordinary Shares underlying the Convertible Notes, as determined in accordance with the Convertible Notes.

 

Fundamental Transactions

At any time after the earlier of the date a Holder becomes aware of any placement by the Company of equity or equity-linked securities or the date of consummation of such a placement, subject to certain limited exceptions, the Holder will have the right to have the Company redeem a portion of the Holder’s Convertible Note not in excess of 35% of the gross proceeds from such placement at a redemption price of 115% of the portion of the Convertible Note subject to redemption. If the Holder is participating in any such placement, the Holder may apply the redemption amount against the purchase price of the securities in such placement.

Covenants

Warrants

 

The Warrants are immediately exercisable upon their issuance, and expire on the fourth anniversary of the issuance date of the Warrants. The following is a brief description of the terms of the Warrants:

 

Exercise Price

 

The Warrants will initially be exercisable at an exercise price of $1.25 per share, subject to adjustment as provided in “—Adjustments” below. The Warrants can be exercised on a cashless basis if there is no effective registration statement registering, or no current prospectus available for, the resale of the ordinary shares underlying the Warrants.

 

The Warrants require “buy-in” payments to be made by the Company for failure to deliver any ordinary shares issuable upon exercise.

 

Adjustments

 

The exercise price is subject to full ratchet antidilution protection upon any subsequent transaction at a price lower than the exercise price then in effect and standard adjustments in the event of any stock split, stock dividend, stock combination, recapitalization or other similar transaction. Upon any adjustment to the exercise price, the number of ordinary shares that may be purchased upon exercise of the Warrants will be increased or decreased proportionately, so that after such adjustment the aggregate exercise price payable for the adjusted number of ordinary shares issuable upon warrant exercise will be the same as the aggregate exercise price in effect immediately prior to such adjustment. If the Company issues, sells or enters into any agreement to issue or sell, any variable rate securities, the selling shareholders have the additional right to substitute the variable price (or formula) of such securities for the exercise price.

 

Exercise Limitation

 

The Holders of the Warrants will not have the right to convert any portion of the Warrants to the extent that, after giving effect to such conversion, such Holder (together with certain related parties) would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the Ordinary Shares outstanding immediately after giving effect to such exercise, as to be elected by such Holder on or prior to the Closing Date.
