Item 2.04Triggering Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement.


On October 10, 2018 and November 29, 2018, respectively, DPW Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) issued two unsecured Promissory Notes (the “October Note” and the “November Note” and collectively, the “Notes”) to Cavalry Fund I LP (“Cavalry”).


We received a notice of default (the “Notice”) from Cavalry on December 21, 2018 contending that the October Note was in default because (i) the Company had not repaid the October Note by December 8, 2018 and (ii) of certain other events of default related to the November Note. Cavalry stated in the Notice that it will commence litigation against the Company unless it has been paid the sum of $888,150 plus interest by December 31, 2018.


Prior to receipt of the Notice from Cavalry, the Company was attempting to reach a negotiated settlement with Cavalry. Notwithstanding receipt of the Notice, the Company hopes to continue to work with Cavalry to settle its obligations under the Cavalry Note. The Company intends to vigorously defend its position should a mutually amicable resolution prove unattainable.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
