SWK TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
Due January 1, 2026
Issuance Date: January 1, 2022
Initial Principal Amount: $835,000 (subject
to downward adjustment)
This Promissory Note (this “Note”) is issued by SWK TECHNLOGIES, INC. (the “Company”), to DYNAMIC TECH SERVICES, INC. (the “Holder”), pursuant to exemptions from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
Section 1.01 Principal and Interest. For value received, on or before January 1, 2026 (the “Maturity Date”), the Company hereby promises to pay to the order of the Holder in lawful money of the United States of America and in immediately available funds the principal sum of Eight Hundred and Thirty-Five Thousand United States Dollars ($835,000), together with interest on the unpaid principal of this Note at the rate of three and one-quarter percent (3.25%) per annum (computed on the basis of a 365-day year and the actual days elapsed) from the date of this Note until paid, subject to adjustment as provided herein.
Section 1.02 Adjustment to Principal. This Note is being executed in connection with that certain Asset Purchase Agreement dated the date hereof by and between the Company, as Buyer, and the Holder, as Seller (the “APA”). Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings set forth in the APA. The Company has purchased certain customer lists, agreements, contracts, and other Purchased Assets in connection with the APA. As set forth in Sections 2.05(b)(i) and 2.05(b)(ii) of the APA, the principal amount of this Note will be subject to a downward adjustment in the event the Company loses any subscription renewal revenue during the one-year period immediately following January 1, 2022 (the “Closing Date”) from any Customers of Holder immediately prior to the Closing Date. Any downward adjustment will be determined by calculating the percentage of loss of Acumatica subscription renewals during the one-year period immediately following the Closing Date from Customers. In the event that subscription renewal revenue received by the Company from Seller Customers during the one-year period immediately following the Closing Date is less than 95% of the subscription renewal revenue received by Seller from Seller Customers during the one-year period immediately preceding the Closing Date (as reflected in Section 2.05(b)(ii) of the Disclosure Schedules), the principal amount of this Note will be reduced. As an example, if the annual subscription renewals of Seller Customers received by Seller during the one-year period preceding the Closing Date was $1,000,000 and the annual subscription renewals of Seller Customers received by the Company during the one-year period following the Closing Date was $900,000, this will represent a 10% loss of the renewal revenue conveyed to The Company. The reciprocal of this percentage loss, which would be 90%, would then be multiplied by the outstanding principal amount of this Note of $835,000, and the new outstanding principal amount of this Note would be $751,500, which is the amount which will be due and owing and paid in accordance with the terms of this Note. The measuring period for any downward adjustment shall be as of the one-year anniversary of the Closing Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, under no circumstances shall the principal amount of this Note be reduced by reason of such downward adjustment by more than $150,000 (i.e., to a principal amount below $685,000).
Section 1.03 Principal and Interest Payments. The principal and interest payable on this Note shall be paid in installments commencing with an initial payment on January 1, 2023, which shall reflect an annual payment, and quarterly payments thereafter on each of April 1, 2023, July 1, 2023, October 1, 2023, January 1, 2024, April 1, 2024, July 1, 2024, October 1, 2024, January 1, 2025, April 1, 2025, July 1, 2025, October 1, 2025 and January 1, 2026. By way of example, if the adjusted principal amount of this Note were to be $720,000, the January 1, 2023 payment of principal and interest would be an aggregate of $203,400 consisting of $180,000 in principal (25% of $720,000) and $23,400 in interest (0.0325 multiplied by $720,000), the April 1, 2023 payment of principal and interest would be an aggregate of $49,387.50 consisting of $45,000 in principal (25% of $180,000) and $4,387.50 in interest (0.0325 multiplied by $540,00 (the remaining principal balance at the time of this calculation) and divided by 4), and the July 1, 2023 payment of principal and interest would be an aggregate of $49,021,88 consisting of $45,000 in principal (25% of $180,000) and $4,021.88 in interest (0.0325 multiplied by $495,00 (the remaining principal balance at the time of this calculation) and divided by 4).The succeeding payments of principal and interest would each consist of a $45,000 principal payment with the interest payment amount being determined consistent with the foregoing.
Section 1.04 Events of Default. Each of the following events, individually or in any combination thereof, shall constitute an “Event of Default”:
any payment of principal and/or interest under this Note shall not be paid within five (5) Business Days of the date that such payment was due;
a court shall enter a decree or order for relief in respect of the Company in an involuntary case under any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law now or hereafter in effect, or appointing a receiver, liquidator, assignee, custodian, trustee, sequestrator (or similar official) of the Company for any substantial part of the property of the Company or ordering the winding up or liquidation of the affairs of the Company, and such decree or order shall remain unstayed and in effect for a period of 60 consecutive days; and
the Company shall commence a voluntary case under any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law now or hereafter in effect, or consent to the entry of an order for relief in an involuntary case under any such law, or consent to the appointment or taking possession by a receiver, liquidator, assignee, custodian, trustee, sequestrator (or similar official) of the Company or for any substantial part of the property of the Company, or the Company shall make any general assignment for the benefit of creditors;
failure by the Company for ten (10) days after notice to it to comply with any of its other agreements in the Note.
If an Event of Default shall occur, the unpaid principal and accrued interest hereunder shall become immediately due and payable without any declaration or other act on the part of the Holder. Additionally, immediately upon the occurrence of any Event of Default the Holder, without any notice to the Borrower, which notice is hereby expressly waived by the Borrower, may proceed to protect, enforce, exercise and pursue any and all rights and remedies available to the Holder under this Note and any and all rights and remedies available to the Holder at law and/or in equity.
