Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On March 25, 2015, ERBA Diagnostics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into that certain Business Loan Agreement (the “New Loan Agreement”) and that certain Promissory Note (the “New Note”) with Citibank, N.A. (“Citibank”), which provides for a secured, revolving credit facility of up to $3,500,000 (the “New Line of Credit”). The New Line of Credit has replaced the secured, revolving credit facility of up to $2,000,000, which the Company had entered into with Citibank on March 1, 2013 (the “Old Line of Credit”) and which is no longer outstanding.

 

Amounts outstanding under the New Line of Credit (a) will accrue interest at an annual rate equal to the 30-day LIBOR plus 1.75% and (b) will become due and payable on February 29, 2016, subject to acceleration upon the occurrence of certain specified events of default that the Company believes are customary for transactions of this type. Pursuant to the New Loan Agreement, the Company will be subject to certain specified positive and negative covenants (including, without limitation, the requirements to maintain a specified capital base and a specified leverage ratio) that the Company believes are customary for transactions of this type.

 

Amounts outstanding under the New Line of Credit will be secured by all of the assets of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries located in the United States – Diamedix Corporation (“Diamedix”), ImmunoVision, Inc. (“ImmunoVision”), Drew Scientific, Inc. (“Drew Scientific”), and JAS Diagnostics, Inc. (“JAS”). The security interests were granted pursuant to that certain Commercial Security Agreement (the “New Security Agreement”), dated as of March 25, 2015, made by JAS in favor of Citibank, and pursuant to those certain Commercial Security Agreements (the “Old Security Agreements”), dated as of March 1, 2013, made by each of the Company, Diamedix, ImmunoVision and Drew Scientific in favor of Citibank in connection with the Old Line of Credit.

 

Amounts outstanding under the New Line of Credit will also be secured by the Company’s pledge of up to sixty-six percent (66%) of the total combined voting power of all classes of capital stock and other equity interests entitled to vote of Delta Biologicals, S.r.L. (“Delta”), the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary located in Italy. The pledge was granted pursuant to that certain Commercial Pledge Agreement (the “New Pledge Agreement”), dated as of March 25, 2015, made by the Company in favor of Citibank.

 

In addition, each of Diamedix, ImmunoVision, Drew Scientific and JAS has guaranteed the repayment of amounts drawn on the New Line of Credit pursuant to Commercial Guaranty Agreements (the “New Guaranties”). Further, Transasia Bio-Medicals Limited, the indirect parent company of the Company, has also guaranteed the repayment of amounts drawn on the New Line of Credit.

Such descriptions are qualified in their entirety by reference to copies of the New Loan Agreement (attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1), the New Note (the form of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2), the New Security Agreement (the form of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.3), the New Pledge Agreement (the form of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.4), the New Guaranties (the form of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.5) and the Old Security Agreements (the form of which was previously filed), as applicable, each of which is incorporated by reference herein.
