Mercurity Fintech Holding Inc. Issues an Unsecured Convertible Promissory Note in the Amount of $9 Million
New York, Feb. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mercurity Fintech Holding Inc. (the “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our company,” or “MFH”) (Nasdaq: MFH), a digital fintech group powered by blockchain technology, announced that it has entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (“SPA”) with a non-U.S. investor (the “Purchaser”). Pursuant to the SPA dated January 31, 2023, the Company issued the Purchaser an Unsecured Convertible Promissory Note (the “Note”) with a face value of $9 million (the “Proceeds”) upon receiving the Proceeds from the Purchaser on February 2, 2023.
After deducting fees and expenses of attorneys, accountants, consultants, and financial advisors, the Company intends to use net proceeds from the Note to provide funding for developing Web3 and blockchain infrastructure, expanding its consulting services, as well as pursuing a cryptocurrency license from the New York State Department of Financial Services (“BitLicense”). However, the Company cannot provide any assurance on successfully obtaining the “BitLicense” for the foreseeable future or at all.
The Note shall bear non-compounding interest at a rate per annum equal to 5% from the date of issuance until repayment of the Note unless the Purchaser elects to convert the Note into ordinary shares. If the Purchaser does not elect to convert the Note, then the outstanding principal amount and all accrued but unpaid interest on the Note shall be due and payable upon the one-year anniversary of the Issuance Date of the Note (the “Maturity Date”). The Purchaser has the right to convert the outstanding balance under the Note into the Company’s ordinary shares (the “Conversion Shares”) at a per share price equal to $0.00172 (the “Conversion Share Price,” equivalent to $0.62 per ADR) according to the terms and conditions of the Note. In addition, upon conversion of the Note, the Purchaser shall receive 100% warrant coverage equal to the number of Conversion Shares with the exercise price at the Conversion Share Price.
Furthermore, the SPA and the Note contain customary covenants and events of default, including instances in which the Note shall accelerate and the entire principal amount of all accrued but unpaid interest on this Note shall become due and payable.
This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful before the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
The offer and sale of the Note have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
