Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On January 9, 2013 Vertical Computer Systems, Inc.’s (the “Company”) subsidiary, Now Solutions, Inc. (“Now Solutions”), secured financing in the aggregate amount of $1,759,150, which amount was utilized to pay off existing indebtedness of the Company and its subsidiaries to Tara Financial Services, Inc. (“Tara Financial”) and Robert Farias (“Farias”), an employee of the Company.
The Company and several of its subsidiaries entered into a loan agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), dated as of January 9, 2013 with Lakeshore Investment, LLC (“Lakeshore”) under which Now Solutions issued a secured ten (10) year promissory note (the “Note”) bearing interest at 11% per annum to Lakeshore in the amount of $1,759,150 payable in equal monthly installments of $24,232 until January 31, 2022. The Note contains provisions requiring additional principal reductions in the event sales by Now Solutions exceed certain financial thresholds.
Pursuant to the Loan Agreement, the Company agreed to make principal payments toward the Note of $90,000 by January 31, 2013, which is secured by 10% of the Company’s ownership interest in Priority Time Systems, Inc. (“Priority Time”) and $600,000 by February 28, 2013, which is secured by 20% of the Company’s ownership interest in Now Solutions. The Loan Agreement also contains provisions requiring certain additional principal prepayments toward the Note by the Company from any litigation or settlement proceeds regarding its SiteFlash technology less any attorney fees and direct Costs (“Net Claim Proceeds”).
The Notes are secured by the assets of the Company’s subsidiaries, Now Solutions, Priority Time, SnAPPnet, Inc. (“SnAPPnet”) and the Company’s SiteFlash technology and are cross-collateralized. Upon the aggregate principal payment of $290,000 toward the Note, the Company has the option to have Lakeshore release either the Priority Time collateral or the SiteFlash collateral. Upon payment of the aggregate principal $590,000 toward the Note, Lakeshore shall release either the Priority Time collateral or the SiteFlash collateral (whichever is remaining). Upon payment of the aggregate principal $890,000 toward the Note, Lakeshore shall release the SnAPPnet collateral and upon full payment of the Note, Lakeshore shall release the Now Solutions collateral.
As additional consideration for the loan, the Company granted a 5% interest in net claim proceeds (less any attorney’s fees and direct costs) from any litigation or settlement proceeds related to the SiteFlash technology to Lakeshore. In addition, until the Note is paid in full, Now Solutions agreed to pay a Lakeshore royalty of 5% of its annual gross revenues in excess of $5 million dollars up to a maximum of $1,759,150.
