Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Unregistered Sale of Equity
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On February 26, 2013, BIO-key International, Inc. (OTCBB: BKYI) (the "Company") entered into a number of agreements with affiliates of InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDCC) ("InterDigital") relating to a research and development collaboration arrangement (the "R&D Collaboration"). In connection with this arrangement, affiliates of InterDigital have invested an aggregate of $900,000 in return for newly issued shares of the Company's common stock (the "InterDigital Equity Investment") and the Company's issuance of a senior secured promissory note that will mature December 31, 2015 (the "InterDigital Note").
The InterDigital Equity Investment was made pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement dated February 26, 2013 by and between the Company and DRNC (the "InterDigital SPA"). Pursuant to the InterDigital SPA, the Company issued 4,026,935 shares of its common stock at a purchase price $0.10 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of $402,693.50. DRNC has anti-dilution rights under the InterDigital SPA that would require the Company to issue additional shares to DRNC on a full-ratchet basis if the Company, within the nine months following February 26, 2013, sells or issues any common stock or common stock equivalents (other than sales or issuances to directors, officers, employees or independent contractors in the ordinary course of business for compensation purposes and stock splits and stock dividends payable in respect of the Company's common stock) having a purchase, exercise or conversion price per share less than $0.10.
The InterDigital Note was issued pursuant to a Note Purchase Agreement dated February 26, 2013 by and between the Company and DRNC (the "InterDigital NPA"). Pursuant to the InterDigital NPA, the InterDigital Note was issued in a principal amount of $497,306.50 and bears interest at a rate of 7% per annum, with a default rate of 9% per annum while a nonpayment default is continuing. The InterDigital Note is secured by a security interest in all of the tangible and intangible assets of the Company, and is subject to acceleration upon an event of default. Under the InterDigital NPA, the Company agreed to comply with certain financial covenants, including a leverage ratio covenant and an annual limit on capital expenditures other than in the ordinary course of business. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the InterDigital Note were used to repay the Colatosti Note (as defined in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Commission on April 16, 2012) in full, with the remaining proceeds to be used for other general corporate purposes.
Concurrently with the closing of the InterDigital transactions described above, the Company closed an equity financing with a number of private investors (the "Private Investor Investment") pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement dated February 26, 2013 by and between the Company and such private investors (the "Private Investor SPA"). Pursuant to the Private Investor SPA, the Company issued 5,000,000 shares of its common stock at a purchase price $0.10 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of $500,000.
