Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Morgenesis LLC Senior Secured Convertible Loan Agreement

 

On August 15, 2022, Morgenesis LLC (“Morgenesis”), a newly formed subsidiary of Orgenesis Inc. (“Orgenesis”) holding substantially all the assets of Orgenesis’ point of care services business for treating patients (“POCare Services”), entered into a senior secured convertible loan agreement (the “Agreement”) with MM OS Holdings, L.P., an affiliate with Metalmark Capital Partners (the “Lender”), pursuant to which the Lender agreed to loan Morgenesis $10,000,000 (the “Loan”) at an interest rate of 8.0% paid-in-kind interest per annum (the “PIK Interest”), which shall be capitalized, compounded and added to the unpaid outstanding principal balance of the Loan on the applicable quarterly interest payment date and which, along with the principal (the “Principal Amount,” and, together with the PIK Interest (but excluding any portion of the Loan that has been converted into equity as described below), the “Outstanding Amount”), is scheduled to mature on March 29, 2023 (the “Maturity Date”). If not previously converted, the Outstanding Amount shall be repaid in cash on the Maturity Date. The Loan will be secured by a blanket lien on substantially all of the assets of Morgenesis and its domestic subsidiaries, as well as certain assets of Orgenesis (in each case, subject to customary exceptions), and shall be guaranteed by Orgenesis and all current and future domestic subsidiaries of Morgenesis.

 

In connection with such Loan, at the Lender’s option or upon the occurrence of certain contingencies within the Lender’s control, the Outstanding Amount shall be convertible, in whole or in part, into equity of Morgenesis at any time based on certain criteria, subject to the terms and conditions described in the Agreement. Additionally, at any time until an initial public offering of Morgenesis or a specified change of control (as described in the Agreement) of Morgenesis, the Lender shall have the option to invest up to an additional $10,000,000 in the equity of Morgenesis upon the terms and conditions described in the Agreement.

 

At the Lender’s sole option, Morgenesis, must prepay all or a portion of the Loan in an amount specified by the Lender following any equity or debt financing by Morgenesis pursuant to which gross proceeds to Morgenesis exceed $10,000,000. The Loan will otherwise not be pre-payable or callable.

 

Morgenesis and certain of its affiliates are subject to a number of affirmative and restrictive covenants pursuant to the Agreement, including but not limited to: covenants regarding information rights; prompt notice of material events; incurrence of indebtedness or liens; related party transactions; distributions or other restricted payments; sales, leases or exchanges of a material part of their respective assets; investments or other acquisitions; and pledges of equity and assets of any non-guarantor subsidiary.

 

The Agreement contains certain specified events of default, the occurrence of which would entitle the Lender to immediately demand repayment of all outstanding principal and accrued interest on the Loan. Such events of default include, among others, failure to make payments under the Loan when due; breaches of covenants and representations and warranties contained in the Agreement; the failure of Morgenesis to be able to pay debts as they come due; the commencement of bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings against Morgenesis; a material judgment levied against Morgenesis; a default by Morgenesis under other material indebtedness and a material adverse effect on Morgenesis.

 

Morgenesis intends to use the Loan proceeds to support expansion of its POCare Services business (including developing additional POCare Centers and OMPUL capital expenditures) and to make certain payments and advances to Orgenesis as described in the Agreement.

 

The foregoing summary of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the Agreement attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, which is incorporated herein by reference.

Interest payments will be payable quarterly in arrears on the last Business Day of each quarter (each such last Business Day, an “Interest Payment Date”) and shall be paid “in kind”, capitalized, compounded and added to the principal balance of the Loan on each Interest Payment Date and thereafter bear interest as principal as provided herein.

 

(ii) Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default any relevant amounts shall bear interest, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Requirements of Law, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to in the case of principal of or interest on the Loan, 2.00% per annum plus the rate otherwise applicable to the Loan as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section 3 or in the case of any other amount, 2.00% per annum plus the rate applicable to the Loan.

 

(iii) All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).

(v) Under no circumstances will the rate of interest chargeable under the Loan for any period, together with all other amounts that are treated as interest on the Loan under New York law (the “Applicable Charges”) be in excess of the maximum amount permitted by applicable New York law (the “Maximum Rate”). If for any period, the interest rate chargeable under the Loan, together with all Applicable Charges, shall exceed the Maximum Rate, the rate of interest payable in respect of the Loan, together with all Applicable Charges payable in respect thereof, shall be limited to the Maximum Rate and, to the extent lawful, the interest and Applicable Charges that would have been payable in respect of the Loan but were not payable as a result of the operation of this Section 3 shall be cumulated and the interest and Applicable Charges payable to the Lender in respect of other periods shall be increased (but not above the Maximum Rate therefor) until such cumulated amount, together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Effective Rate to the date of repayment, shall have been received by the Lender.

Other than as expressly set forth in this Section 3(b), the Loan may not be prepaid by Borrower (or any other Person) without the express written consent of Lender (in its sole and absolute discretion).

The Borrower hereby agrees that in the event the Lender does take possession of the Collateral as provided herein, the obligation of the Borrower to pay such Loan payments due or to become due under this Agreement shall survive such repossession;

 

(iv) without further notice or demand or legal process, enter upon any premises of the Loan Parties and take possession of the Collateral, all records and items relating to the Collateral and, at the Lender’s request, the Loan Parties will assemble the Collateral and such records and deliver them to the Lender; and

In order to entitle the Lender to exercise any remedy reserved to it in this Section, it shall not be necessary to give notice other than such notice as may be required in this Section.

 

(d) In addition to the above remedies, if the Loan Parties commit a breach, or threatens to commit a breach of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, the Lender shall have the right and remedy, without posting bond or other security, to have the provisions of this Agreement specifically enforced by any court having equity jurisdiction, it being acknowledged and agreed that any such breach or threatened breach will cause irreparable injury to the Lender and that money damages will not provide an adequate remedy therefor.

(b) In the event of any damage, destruction, taking or condemnation, the proceeds from any insurance or condemnation award shall (unless Lender shall otherwise expressly agree in writing) be deposited with the Lender and applied to the payment of any amounts due on the Loan unless the Lender shall agree to apply the proceeds to the repair, reconstruction, replacement or relocation of the Collateral (or shall otherwise expressly waive its rights to such proceeds in writing).

For purposes hereof, the term “Qualified Financing” shall mean a sale or issuance (or series of related sales or issuances) of Capital Stock or instruments convertible into or exchangeable for Capital Stock of Borrower with gross proceeds of not less than $10,000,000.

 

(b) Conversion Price. The conversion price for any Conversion shall be determined as set forth below:

 

(i) If Borrower consummates a Qualified Financing prior to November 1, 2022, the Converted Amount shall be convertible at the option of Lender into the most senior Capital Stock issued in such Qualified Financing, at the valuation implied in such Qualified Financing.

 

38
 

 

(ii) If a Qualified Financing is not consummated prior to November 1, 2022, the Converted Amount shall be convertible at the option of Lender at any time after such date into common Capital Stock of Borrower at a 25% premium to the fair market value of Borrower as of the Closing Date, as determined by a nationally recognized independent accounting firm in the United States selected by Lender (the “FMV Common Shares”). Such fair market value shall be calculated based on a “sum of the parts” valuation using the closing share price of the publicly traded shares of Holdings (NASD: ORGS) as of the Closing Date; provided that, in the event that a Capital Stock financing involving a sale or issuance to one or more Persons that are not an Affiliate of Borrower is consummated after November 1, 2022 but prior to the one-year anniversary of the Closing Date, and the equity sold or issued in such Capital Stock financing is on terms (including at a valuation), or contains terms (including economic terms), more favorable to the holder of such Capital Stock than the FMV Common Shares, the terms of the FMV Common Shares, or number of FMV Common Shares issued to Lender (or its designee), shall be amended (and/or increased) at the request of Lender (or its designee or successor or assign) to include such more favorable terms and/or to effectuate such increase (this proviso, the “FMV Common Shares Terms MFN”). This FMV Common Shares Terms MFN shall survive termination of this Agreement and/or repayment in full and/or Conversion of the Loans and other Obligations hereunder.

 

(iii) If after the Closing Date Lender or any of its Affiliates consummates an actual investment in the Capital Stock of Borrower as part of a Qualified Financing consisting of the issuance of Capital Stock, Borrower may upon consummation of such Qualified Financing that includes such actual equity investment by Lender or its Affiliates in such Capital Stock convert the outstanding principal amount of the Loan (and all accrued interest thereon (including capitalized interest)) into the same Capital Stock of Borrower that is the subject of Lender’s (or its Affiliate’s) then-investment at the valuation implied in such Qualified Financing.

 

(c) Qualified Financing. Borrower shall promptly notify Lender that a Qualified Financing is anticipated to occur (and in any event, shall provide such written notice on or before the date that is 45 days prior to the consummation of such Qualified Financing).

 

(d) Conversion Procedure. Before Lender shall be entitled to convert the Loan into Capital Stock as set forth under this Section, it shall give written notice (a “Conversion Notice”) to Borrower of the election to convert the same pursuant to this Section, and shall state therein the amount of the unpaid principal amount of (and accrued interest on) the Loan to be converted and the name or names in which the certificate or certificates for shares of equity (or other instruments) are to be issued. Borrower shall, as soon as practicable thereafter (and in no event greater than ten (10) calendar days following the date of such Conversion Notice (unless otherwise expressly agreed by Lender in its sole discretion)), issue and deliver to Lender a certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Capital Stock (or other instruments) to which Lender shall be entitled upon such Conversion (bearing such legends as are required by this Agreement and applicable state and federal securities laws in the opinion of counsel to Borrower), together with any other securities and property to which Lender is entitled upon such Conversion under the terms of this Loans, including payment of any cash amounts payable as described in Section 11(e). Each Conversion shall be deemed to have been made immediately prior to the close of business on the date of the Conversion Notice, and upon such Conversion, Lender shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder of such equity as of such date.

 

(e) Fractional Shares, Interest, Effect of Conversion. No fractional shares shall be issued upon any Conversion of the Loan (or any portion thereof). In lieu of Borrower issuing any fractional shares to Lender upon any Conversion of the Loan (or any portion thereof), Borrower shall pay to Lender an amount equal to the product obtained by multiplying the conversion price by the fraction of a share not issued pursuant to the previous sentence. In addition, Borrower shall pay to Lender any interest accrued on the amount converted (unless such interest is to be converted, as set forth in the other provisions of this Section 11) and on the amount to be paid to Borrower pursuant to the previous sentence. Upon Conversion of this Loan in full and the payment of the amounts specified in this Section, Borrower shall be forever released from all its obligations and liabilities under this Loan.

 

39
 

 

(f) Investor Rights Agreement. In the event of any Conversion pursuant to this Section 11, Lender (or its successor or assign) shall continue to have the same governance and consent rights that it held as Lender pursuant to this Agreement, which shall be set forth in an investor rights (or similar) agreement, including an amended and restated limited liability company agreement, to be entered into between Lender and Borrower (which shall be consistent with Exhibit C and shall otherwise be negotiated by Lender and Borrower in good faith and entered into in connection with such Conversion). Lender shall also be entitled to customary minority protections including tag along rights, preemptive and anti-dilution rights, and information rights pursuant to such agreement, in addition to, in connection with a conversion made in connection with a Qualified Financing, any other customary rights and protections pursuant to any shareholders or similar agreement entered into in connection with such Qualified Financing.

 

(g) Specific Performance. Each of the parties hereto expressly agrees that Lender would be irreparably damaged if this Section 11 is not specifically enforced. Upon a breach, default or a threatened breach of the terms or provisions of this Agreement (or any other Loan Document) by Holdings, Borrower or any other Loan Party, Lender shall, in addition to all other remedies, be entitled to a decree for specific performance, without the necessity of proof of actual charges or the posting of a bond or other security. Holdings and Borrower (or behalf of themselves and their applicable Subsidiaries) each hereby waive, and agree that they will not raise, any defense to any action for specific performance of such party’s obligations under this Section 11 in accordance with the terms hereof based upon any obligation of Lender to mitigate damages or upon Lender having an adequate remedy at law. As applicable in order for Lender to give effect thereto, Lender’s rights under this Section 11 shall survive termination of the Loan Agreement.

 

(h) For the avoidance of doubt, (a) prior to any Conversion, all Obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall remain outstanding in accordance with the terms hereof and thereof and (b) from and after any Conversion, all Obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents that are not Converted shall remain outstanding in accordance with the terms hereof and thereof.

 

Section 12. Lender Optional Investment. At any time prior to the earlier of a Borrower IPO or a second to occur (after the Closing Date) “change or control” (or equivalent term) (to be defined in the Borrower LLC Agreement amendment, and subject to the terms thereof), Lender shall have the option on one or more occasions to invest up to an aggregate additional amount of $10,000,000 (the “Lender Optional Investment”) in the common Capital Stock of Borrower. If a Qualified Financing is completed prior to the November 1, 2022, the Lender Optional Investment shall be to purchase common Capital Stock at the valuation implied in such Qualified Financing, otherwise the Lender Optional Investment shall be to purchase FMV Common Shares (subject to the FMV Common Shares Terms MFN). This right shall survive termination of this Agreement and/or repayment in full and/or Conversion of the Loans and other Obligations hereunder.

 

40
 

 

Section 13. Waivers; Indemnity. Borrower waives presentment and demand for payment, notice of dishonor, protest and notice of protest of this Agreement, and shall pay all reasonable costs of collection when incurred, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses arising out of Lender’s relationship with the Borrower (provided that in no event shall Borrower be required to pay any fees and expenses of Lender incurred on or prior to the Closing Date in excess of $350,000). Borrower covenants and agrees that neither the Lender, its members,agents, servants, officers or employees shall be liable for: (1) any loss, damage or injury to, or death of, any person occurring at or about or resulting from any defect in the Collateral; (2) any damage or injury to the persons or property of the Borrower, or its officers, agents, servants or employees, or any other person who may be about the Borrower’s premises, caused by any act of negligence of any person (other than the Lender or its members, officers, agents, servants or employees); or (3) any costs, expenses or damages incurred as a result of any lawsuit commenced because of action taken in good faith by the Lender in connection with the Collateral and/or any IP Rights. The Borrower shall indemnify, protect, defend and hold Lender and its respective members, agents, servants, officers and employees (each an “Indemnified Party”), harmless from and against any and all such losses, damages, injuries, costs or expenses and (except for claims, demands, suits, actions or other proceedings brought against an Indemnified Party resulting from willful or wanton misconduct of such Indemnified Party) from and against any and all claims, demands, suits, actions or other proceedings whatsoever, brought by any person or entity whatsoever (except the Borrower), and arising or purportedly arising from this Agreement, any Loan Document or any transaction contemplated in any such documents. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall any party hereto be responsible for payment of any other party’s fees and expenses incurred in connection with the Transactions if the Closing Date does not occur.

 

Section 14. Publicity. Borrower hereby grants Lender the right to use Borrowers name and logo in public communications announcing or reporting the transaction and on Lenders website listing Lender’s transactions.

 

Section 15. Notices. All notices, requests, demands, consents, instructions or other communications required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing and faxed, mailed or delivered to each party at the respective addresses of the parties as set forth below, or at such other address or facsimile number as Borrower shall have furnished to Lender in writing.

This term sheet (this “Term Sheet”) outlines the material provisions of the Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement (the “LLC Agreement”) of Morgenesis LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Company”), in connection with that certain Senior Secured Convertible Loan (the “Convertible Loan”) in the amount of $10 million, provided by one or more funds affiliated with Metalmark Capital Partners who are not competitors of the Company (“Metalmark” or the “Investors”) to the Company. Upon conversion of the Convertible Loan into equity of the Company, the existing limited liability company agreement of the Company shall be amended and restated to reflect the terms set forth in this Term Sheet.

 

The terms below do not constitute or imply a commitment to provide the described financing and remain subject to due diligence, and negotiation and execution of final documentation.

Board Committees:   Metalmark will have representation on each committee of the Board so long as it has the right to appoint any director.

Preemptive Rights:   Metalmark will have preemptive rights to participate in future issuances of equity securities by the Company or any of its subsidiaries on a pro rata basis (with customary over-subscription rights), subject to customary exceptions to be agreed.
     
Restriction on Transfers:   Following the first year, Metalmark may transfer its equity interests in the Company to a third party (who is not a competitor of the Company), provided that within three years after closing, Orgenesis has a right of first refusal (the “Orgenesis Right of First Refusal”). Orgenesis may transfer share capital of the Company only with the approval of the Board (with the Metalmark director’s approval) and also subject to a right of first refusal initially to the benefit of the Company and thereafter to Metalmark and any other equityholder who may become a party to the LLC Agreement.

Registration Rights:   Metalmark and Orgenesis are provided with demand and piggyback registration rights to register the shares of the Company in the event the Company becomes publicly traded, subject to customary provisions.
