NOTE 13: COMMITTED EQUITY FACILITY AGREEMENT/REGISTRATION RIGHTS AGREEMENT

 

On June 12, 2012, Ace Marketing& Promotions, Inc. (the “Company”) finalized a committed equity facility (the “Equity Facility”) with TCA Global Credit Master Fund, LP, a Cayman Islands limited partnership (“TCA”), whereby the parties entered into as of May 31, 2012 (i) a committed equity facility agreement (the “Equity Agreement”) and (ii) a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”).

 

Committed Equity Facility Agreement

 

On June 12, 2012, the Company finalized an Equity Agreement with TCA. Pursuant to the terms of the Equity Agreement, for a period of twenty-four months commencing on the effective date of the Registration Statement (as defined herein), TCA shall commit to purchase up to $2,000,000 of the Company’s common stock (the “Shares”), pursuant to Advances (as defined below), covering the Registrable Securities (as defined below). The purchase price of the Shares under the Equity Agreement is equal to ninety-five percent (95%) of the lowest daily volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock during the five (5) consecutive trading days after the Company delivers to TCA an Advance notice in writing requiring TCA to advance funds (an “Advance”) to the Company, subject to the terms of the Equity Agreement.

 

The “Registrable Securities” include (i) the Shares; and (ii) any securities issued or issuable with respect to the Shares by way of exchange, stock dividend or stock split or in connection with a combination of shares, recapitalization, merger, consolidation or other reorganization or otherwise.

 

As further consideration for TCA entering into and structuring the Equity Facility, the Company shall pay to TCA a fee by issuing to TCA that number of shares of the Company’s common stock that equal a dollar amount of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) (the “Facility Fee Shares”). In the event the value of the Facility Fee Shares issued to TCA does not equal $100,000 after a ninth month evaluation date, the Equity Agreement provides for an adjustment provision allowing for necessary action to adjust the number of shares issued. In June 2012, the Company issued 196,078 shares of common stock as the initial Facility Fee Shares. In March 2013, TCA notified the Company that the facility fee of $100,000 needed to be paid in additional shares or cash. In this respect, the 196,078 shares of Common Stock previously advance by the Company to TCA toward the facility fee were sold by TCA and it realized net proceeds of approximately $48,000. In March 2013, the Company elected to pay the remaining facility fee in cash.

 

Registration Rights Agreement

 

On June 12, 2012, the Company finalized the Registration Rights Agreement with TCA. Pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company is obligated to file a registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC’) to cover the Registrable Securities. The Company must use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Registration Statement to be declared effective by the SEC. The Registration Statement on Form S-1 was filed by the Company with the SEC in March 2013 and was declared effective by the SEC in April 2013.

 

Termination of Committed Equity Facility Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement

 

In March 2014, the Company and TCA agreed to terminate the Committed Equity Facility Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement with no further obligations to each other. A total of 8,000 shares were sold pursuant to the Facility Agreement. On April 22, 2014, the Company removed from registration the unsold 4,992,000 shares of Common Stock.
