Note 5 – Notes Payable
On December 30, 2016, in connection with the TBL acquisition (see Note 1), Foothills entered into a promissory note in the amount of $6,000,000 with Total Belief Limited. This note matures on June 30, 2018, and recites that it accrues no interest during its term. Foothills recorded $342,804 imputed interest as debt discount. This amount of $342,804 was determined using the present value method based on the following assumptions: (i) adjusted interest rate 4% (ii) expected life of 1.5 years. During the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2017, we amortized $57,134 and $171,402 debt discount into interest expense. The Company has reduced the value of its oil and gas properties in the proportion of the debt discount allocated to the note.
Effective January 5, 2017, Foothills borrowed $1,000,000 from Full Wealth Investment Hong Kong Limited, a limited liability company organized under the laws of Hong Kong. The Company executed a promissory note, titled as a Debenture, with the lender dated as of December 30, 2016, with proceeds being received by the Company on January 5, 2017. This loan is unsecured, bears interest at 9% per year and is due and payable in 120 days from the receipt of funds. If any amount payable is not paid when due, any such overdue amount shall bear interest at the default rate of 11% from the date of such non-payment until such amount is paid in full. The Company used net proceeds of this loan to satisfy certain obligations under a Purchase and Sale Agreement with Total Belief Limited, dated December 30, 2016, for general working capital and to support certain target drilling activities. On May 18, 2017, Full Wealth Investment Hong Kong Limited sold this note to Gold Class Limited, with accrued interest increased from 9% to 13.5% per annum for the life of the debenture. On June 1, 2017, Full Wealth Investment Hong Kong Limited acquired this note from Gold Class with a 60-day term and 10% interest per annum for the life of the debenture. On August 14, 2017, we repaid $1,000,000 in principal and $20,000 in accrued interest, and recorded remaining accrued interest in amount of $30,000 as gain on debt forgiveness.
Effective August 9, 2017, Foothills borrowed $1,050,000 from Profit Well Limited, a Hong Kong limited liability company. The Company executed a Bridge Note with an annual percentage interest rate of 13.5% and a maturity date of September 8, 2017. Proceeds of this Bridge Note were received by the Company on August 10, 2017, and were primarily used to repay Full Wealth for the debenture dated June 1, 2017. On November 3, 2017, Profit Well Limited agreed to defer repayment of this note to a later date, which is as yet undetermined, and acknowledged that the Company is not in default regarding this Debenture. Profit Well Limited also reaffirmed its belief that the Company will either extend or repay the obligation to their satisfaction. As partial consideration for the deferment, the Company agreed to issue Profit Well Limited 100,000 shares of its restricted common stock.
On September 29, 2017, the Company, issued to an unaffiliated investor a promissory note and three tranches of warrants for an aggregate consideration of $250,000. The note recites that it accrues no interest if paid when due, and is due and payable on January 2, 2018. If principal is not paid on or before maturity, interest will accrue at the rate of 15% per year until paid. The warrants have the following terms:
The aggregate relative fair value of three tranches warrants was determined to be $105,000 on September 29, 2017, using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model based on the following assumptions: (i) volatility rate of 94%, (ii) discount rate of 0%, (iii) zero expected dividend yield, and (iv) expected life of 2-3 years. $2,536 imputed interest was recorded as debt discount. $2,536 was determined using the present value method based on the following assumptions: (i) adjusted interest rate 4% (ii) expected life of 0.26 year. The aggregate value of the warrants and imputed interest of $107,536 was considered as debt discount upon issuance and will be amortized as interest over the term of the note or in full upon the conversion of the note. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company amortized $1,132 of such discount to interest expense, and the unamortized discount as of September 30, 2017 was $106,404. At September 30, 2017, $250,000 of principal was outstanding under the Note.
Each tranche of warrants is subject to down round adjustment provisions if the Company during the term of that tranche issues additional securities for consideration per share, after giving effect to fees, commission and expenses, that is less, or which on conversion or exercise of the underlying security is less, than $0.665 per share (as adjusted for any change resulting from forward or reverse splits, stock dividends and similar events).
To satisfy most favored nation provisions in previously entered securities purchase agreements that are triggered by the transaction described above, Company will issue 136,015 shares of common stock and warrants to purchase 136,015 shares of common stock, in the aggregate, to certain investors who purchased units from the Company, at a $1.00 per unit, with each unit consisting of one share and one warrant. See the Company’s Current Report on the Form 8-K filed with the SEC on June 5, 2017. Of this amount, 100,752 shares and warrants to purchase 100,752 shares of common stock will be issued to Wilshire Energy Partners LLC, an entity controlled by Kevin J. Sylla. The exercise price of these investor warrants was adjusted to $0.665 per share. We measured the value of the effect of the down round feature as the difference between the fair value of the financial instrument at an original exercise price of $1.50 and an adjusted exercise price of $0.665 and, as a result, $59,801 was recorded as down round feature as a dividend under retained earnings under ASC 260-10-30-1. Foothills determined the amount of $59,801 using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model based on the following assumptions: (i) volatility rate of 94%, (ii) discount rate of 0%, (iii) zero expected dividend yield, and (iv) expected life of 3 years.
