Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions (see General Instruction A.2. below):
On November 9, 2012, Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with Asher Enterprises, Inc. ("Asher"), for the sale of an 8% convertible note in the principal amount of $32,500 (the "Note"). The financing closed on November 21, 2012.
The Note bears interest at the rate of 8% per annum. All interest and principal must be repaid on August 13, 2013. The Note is convertible into common stock, at Asher’s option, at a 42% discount to the average of the three lowest closing bid prices of the common stock during the 10 trading day period prior to conversion. In the event the Company prepays the Note in full, the Company is required to pay off all principal, interest and any other amounts owing multiplied by (i) 120% if prepaid during the period commencing on the closing date through 30 days thereafter, (ii) 125% if prepaid 31 days following the closing through 60 days following the closing and (iii) 130% if prepaid 61 days following the closing through 90 days following the closing and (iv) 135% if prepaid 91 days following the closing through 120 days following the closing and (v) 140% if prepaid 121 days following the closing through 150 days following the closing and (vi) 150% if prepaid 151 days following the closing through 180 days following the closing. After the expiration of 180 days following the date of the Note, the Company has no right of prepayment.
Asher has agreed to restrict its ability to convert the Note and receive shares of common stock such that the number of shares of common stock held by them in the aggregate and their affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 4.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The total net proceeds the Company received from this Offering was $32,500, less attorneys fees. As of the date of the Note, the Company is obligated on the Note issued to Asher in connection with the offering. The Note is a debt obligation arising other than in the ordinary course of business, which constitutes a direct financial obligation of the Company.
The Company claims an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act") for the private placement of these securities pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Act and/or Regulation D promulgated there under since, among other things, the transaction did not involve a public offering, Asher is an accredited investor, Asher had access to information about the Company and their investment, Asher took the securities for investment and not resale, and the Company took appropriate measures to restrict the transfer of the securities.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
