Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On March 27, 2023, Harrow Health, Inc. and certain of its affiliates (together, the “Company”) entered into a Credit and Guaranty Agreement (the “Oaktree Loan”) with Oaktree Fund Administration, LLC, as administrative agent for the lenders (together, “Oaktree”), providing for a loan to the Company with a principal amount of up to $100,000,000. Upon entering into the Oaktree Loan, the Company drew a principal amount of $65,000,000 from the Oaktree Loan and used the net proceeds to repay all amounts owed by the Company pursuant to the Loan and Security Agreement the Company previously entered into with B. Riley Commercial Capital, LLC on December 14, 2022 (the “B. Riley Loan”). No remaining amounts are due under the B. Riley Loan, and no exit or prepayment fees were paid as a result of the payoff of the B. Riley Loan. The additional principal loan amount of up to $35,000,000 available under the Oaktree Loan (the “Tranche B”) will be made available to the Company upon the commercialization of Triesence®.
The Oaktree Loan is secured by nearly all of the assets, including intellectual property, of the Company and its material subsidiaries. The Oaktree Loan has a maturity date of January 19, 2026 and carries an interest rate equal to the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) plus 6.5% per annum. From proceeds, the Company paid fees, expenses and an original issue discount charge equal to $3,100,000 as part of the closing of the Oaktree Loan. The Oaktree Loan requires interest-only payments through its term (there is no amortization of the principal amount or excess cash flow sweeps during the term of the Oaktree Loan).
The Oaktree Loan contains customary covenants, including financial covenants related to minimum cash balance and minimum revenues. For the year ended December 31, 2024, if the Company’s Total Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Oaktree Loan) is greater than or equal to five times, but less than seven times, the Company will be required to issue to Oaktree warrants to purchase 375,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, and if the Total Leverage Ratio is greater than or equal to seven times, the Company will be required to issue to Oaktree warrants to purchase an additional 375,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (equaling 750,000 shares in aggregate). If the Total Leverage Ratio for the year ended December 31, 2024 is less than five times, no warrants will be issued to Oaktree. Based on current projections, the Company does not expect to issue any warrants related to the Oaktree Loan.
The foregoing description of the Oaktree Loan does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Oaktree Loan, which the Company expects to file as an exhibit to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2023.
