Nasdaq delisting


On February 16, 2021, the Company received a delisting determination letter (the “Letter”) from the Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) stating that the Staff has determined to delist the Company’s common stock from Nasdaq due to the Company’s failure to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Capital Market’s minimum $2,500,000 stockholders’ equity requirement for continued listing as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b) (the “Rule”) and the Company’s failure to timely execute its plan to regain compliance under the Rule.


Nasdaq commenced with delisting the Company’s common stock from the Nasdaq Capital Market and, suspended trading in the Company’s common stock effective at the open of business on February 25, 2021.


On February 24, 2021, the Company was approved to have its common stock quoted on the OTCQX® Best Market tier of the OTC Markets Group Inc. (the “OTCQX”), an electronic quotation service operated by OTC Markets Group Inc. The trading of the Company’s common stock commenced on OTCQX at the open of business on February 25, 2021 under the trading symbol IDXG.


Secured Promissory Notes


On January 7, 2021, the Company entered into promissory notes with Ampersand, in the amount of $3 million, and 1315 Capital, in the amount of $2 million, respectively (together, the “Notes”) and a related security agreement (the “Security Agreement”).


Ampersand holds 28,000 shares of the Company’s Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, which are convertible from time to time into an aggregate of 4,666,666 shares of our Common Stock, and 1315 Capital holds 19,000 shares of the Company Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, which are convertible from time to time into an aggregate of 3,166,668 shares of our Common Stock. On an as-converted basis, such shares would represent approximately 39.3% and 26.7% of our fully-diluted shares of Common Stock, respectively. In addition, pursuant to the terms of the Series B Convertible Preferred Stock certificate of designation and an amended and restated investor rights agreement among the Company and Ampersand and 1315 Capital, they each have the right to (1) approve certain of our actions, including our borrowing of money and (2) designate two directors to our Board of Directors. As a result, the Company considers the Notes and Security Agreement to be a related party transaction.


The rate of interest on the Notes is equal to eight percent (8.0%) per annum and their maturity date is the earlier of (a) June 30, 2021 and (b) the date on which all amounts become due upon the occurrence of any event of default as defined in the Notes. No interest payments are due on the Notes until their maturity date. All payments on the Notes are pari passu.


In connection with the Security Agreement, the Notes are secured by a first priority lien and security interest on substantially all of the assets of the Company. Additionally, if a change of control of the Company occurs (as defined in the Notes) the Company is required to make a prepayment of the Notes in an amount equal to the unpaid principal amount, all accrued and unpaid interest, and all other amounts payable under the Notes out of the net cash proceeds received by the Company from the consummation of the transactions related to such change of control. The Company may prepay the Notes in whole or in part at any time or from time to time without penalty or premium by paying the principal amount to be prepaid together with accrued interest thereon to the date of prepayment. No prepaid amount may be re-borrowed.


The Notes contain certain negative covenants which prevent the Company from issuing any debt securities pursuant to which the Company issues shares, warrants or any other convertible security in the same transaction or a series of related transactions, except that Company may incur or enter into any capitalized and operating leases in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice, or borrowed money or funded debt in an amount not to exceed $4.5 million (the “Debt Threshold”) that is subordinated to the Notes on terms acceptable to Ampersand and 1315 Capital; provided, that if the aggregate consolidated revenue recognized by the Company as reported on Form 10-K as filed with the SEC for any fiscal year ending after January 10, 2020 exceeds $45 million dollars, the Debt Threshold for the following fiscal year shall increase to an amount equal to: (x) ten percent (10%); multiplied by (y) the consolidated revenue as reported by the Company on Form 10-K as filed with the SEC for the previous fiscal year.

On January 5, 2021, the Company terminated the SVB Loan Agreement, see Note 19, Revolver, in accordance with the terms of the agreement. In connection with the termination, SVB waived its right to any termination fees and released its security interest in the assets of the Company.
