On December 17, 2012, pursuant to the Note Purchase Agreement dated August 24, 2012 (the “Purchase Agreement”), among Axion International Holdings, Inc.

In consideration for the issuance of the Notes and the Warrants, the Investors paid the Company cash in the aggregate amount of $499,667.00. The issuance and sale of the Notes and the Warrants was effected pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, which is more fully described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August 27, 2012.
The Notes and the Warrants were offered and sold to the Investors in a private placement transaction made in reliance upon exemptions from registration pursuant to Section 4(2) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder. The Investors are accredited investors as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.
The Notes, including all outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest, are due and payable on the earlier of December 17, 2017 or upon the occurrence of an Event of Default (as defined in the Notes). The Company may prepay the Notes, in whole or in part, upon 60 calendar days prior written notice to the holders thereof. Interest accrues on the Notes at a rate of 8.0% per annum, payable during the first three years that the Notes are outstanding in shares of Common Stock, valued at the weighted average price of a share of Common Stock for the twenty consecutive trading days prior to the interest payment date, pursuant to the terms of the Notes. During the fourth and fifth years that the Notes are outstanding, interest that accrues under the Notes shall be payable in cash.
The Warrants are exercisable at an exercise price of $0.60 per share of Common Stock, subject to adjustment as provided for by the terms thereof, for a period commencing on the date of issuance and ending on the earlier to occur of the date that is (i) three years after the date upon which the weighted average price of a share of Common Stock for the 90 consecutive trading days prior to such date is at least $2.00 per share, and (ii) five years after the date on which the Note to which the applicable Warrant is related has been repaid in full.
