NOTE 4: CONVERTIBLE PROMISSORY NOTE

 

On June 12, 2012, the Company closed on a security agreement (the “Security Agreement”) with TCA related to a $350,000 convertible promissory note issued by the Company in favor of TCA (the “Convertible Note”). The maturity date of the Convertible Note was December 2013, and the Convertible Note bears interest at a rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum. The Convertible Note was convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price equal to ninety-five percent (95%) of the average of the lowest daily volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock during the five (5) trading days immediately prior to the date of conversion. The Convertible Note may be prepaid in whole or in part at the Company’s option without penalty. The Security Agreement granted to TCA a continuing, first priority security interest in all of the Company’s assets, wheresoever located and whether now existing or hereafter arising or acquired. The Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Mobiquity Networks, Inc., also entered into a similar Security Agreement and Guaranty Agreement. On December 12, 2013, TCA sold its entire interest in the Company’s $350,000 secured promissory note to Thomas Arnost, a director of the Company, at face value. Mr. Arnost entered into an amendment to the note to extend the maturity date of the note to June 12, 2014, subject to his right to declare the note due and payable at any time in his sole discretion. Also, the interest rate was raised from 12% per annum to 15% per annum with interest payable monthly and the conversion price of the shares issuable upon conversion of the note was fixed at $.30 per share. The due date of the note was further extended to December 12, 2014 and is convertible at the sole discretion of the noteholder. The noteholder immediately converted $28,000 into 93,334 shares of common stock in December 2013. The principal balance on the note is $322,000 as of June 30, 2014.

 

The Company evaluated the terms of the new note in accordance with ASC Topic No. 815 - 40, Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Stock. The Company determined that the conversion feature did not meet the definition of a liability and therefore did not bifurcate the conversion feature and account for it as a separate derivative liability. The Company evaluated the conversion feature for a beneficial conversion feature. The effective conversion price was compared to the market price on the date of the note and was deemed to be less than the market value of underlying common stock at the inception of the note. Therefore, the Company recognized a beneficial conversion feature in the amount of $116,667. The beneficial conversion feature was recorded as an increase in additional paid-in capital and recognized interest expense in the year ended December 31, 2013.
