Pursuant to the Original Loan Agreement, the Original Borrowers are entitled to borrow from SVB up to $3 million, based on net eligible accounts receivable after an 80% advance rate and subject to limits based on the Borrowers eligible accounts as determined by SVB (the Original Revolving Loan). Interest on extensions of credit under the Original Revolving Loan is equal to the prime rate of SVB, which is currently 3.25% per annum, plus 1.50% per annum (the Original Applicable Rate). Pursuant to the Original Loan Agreement, SVB also made available to the Original Borrowers a term loan (the Term Loan) in an amount up to $400,000, subject to the satisfaction of terms and conditions of the Original Loan Agreement. The Term Loan was repayable in eighteen equal monthly installments and interest was fixed at a rate per annum equal to 9.00%. The Original Borrowers have previously repaid the Term Loan.
