GREENBROOK TMS RAISES US$1.9 MILLION IN DEBT FINANCING
TORONTO, Oct. 3, 2023
TORONTO, Oct. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ - Greenbrook TMS Inc. (NASDAQ: GBNH) ("Greenbrook" or the "Company") today announced that it has received an aggregate of US$1.9 million in unsecured subordinated debt financing from certain new investors (the "Investors") through the issuance and sale by the Company to the Investors of US$1.9 million aggregate principal amount of unsecured subordinated convertible promissory notes (the "Subordinated Convertible Notes").
The Subordinated Convertible Notes issued to the Investors are identical to the US$6.25 million aggregate principal amount of Subordinated Convertible Notes issued to, among others, Greybrook Health Inc. and certain affiliates of Madryn Fund Administration, LLC ("Madryn"). Accordingly, there is currently US$8.2 million aggregate principal amount of Subordinated Convertible Notes issued and outstanding.
The Subordinated Convertible Notes bear interest at a rate consistent with the Company's credit facility with Madryn (the "Madryn Credit Facility") and mature on March 31, 2028, or earlier in the event of a change of control, acceleration of other indebtedness or six months following repayment or refinancing of all loans under the Madryn Credit Facility (the "Madryn Loans"). The Subordinated Convertible Notes are subordinated to the Madryn Loans and to the obligations of the Company under the secured promissory note and guaranty agreement with Neuronetics, Inc.
The Subordinated Convertible Notes are convertible into common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") at any time at the election of holders of the Subordinated Convertible Notes, or on a mandatory basis by all noteholders at the request of Madryn, at a conversion price (the "Conversion Price") equal to the lesser of (a) 85% of the closing price per Common Share on Nasdaq or any other market as of the closing date for such Subordinated Convertible Notes (as adjusted from time to time in accordance with the note purchase agreement, the "Reference Conversion Price"), with the Reference Conversion Price in effect as of October 2, 2023 being (i) US$0.2202 for all noteholders who invested on and before September 25, 2023 and (ii) US$0.2210 for all noteholders who invested after September 25, 2023, and (b)(i) 85% of the 30-day volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares prior to conversion, or (ii) if the Common Shares are not listed on any of Nasdaq or another trading market at the time of conversion, a per share price based equal to 85% of the fair market value per Common Share as of such date (for such purposes, determined in good faith by the Company's board of directors, acting reasonably); provided, that, in any event, the Conversion Price shall not be lower than US$0.078. The Conversion Price is also subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments.
The proceeds of the Subordinated Convertible Notes are expected to be used by the Company for general corporate and working capital purposes. The Company is also currently considering additional near-term financing options to address its future liquidity needs.
In addition, the Company entered into an amendment to the Madryn Credit Facility to defer the September 30, 2023 interest payment due date and extend the period during which the Company's minimum liquidity covenant is reduced from US$3,000,000 to US$300,000 to October 15, 2023.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of any of the Subordinated Convertible Notes or the Common Shares issuable upon conversion thereof (collectively, the "Securities") in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
