Item 1.01

Entry into Material Definitive Agreement

On September 22, 2023 (the “Effective Date”), Capstone Green Energy Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Sixth Amendment (the “Sixth Amendment”) to the Amended and Restated Note Purchase Agreement dated October 1, 2020 (the “A&R Note Purchase Agreement”) among the Company, certain subsidiaries of the Company, Goldman Sachs Specialty Lending Group, L.P. (as successor in interest to Goldman Sachs Specialty Lending Holdings, Inc.), as collateral agent (the “Collateral Agent”), and the purchaser party thereto (the “Purchaser”). Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the A&R Note Purchase Agreement, as amended by the Sixth Amendment.

Pursuant to the Sixth Amendment, the Company issued and the Purchaser purchased for $3,000,000 in cash additional senior secured notes on the Effective Date (the “Additional Notes”). The Additional Notes bear interest at the SOFR Rate plus 8.75% per annum, payable-in-kind on the last day of each interest period of one-, two-, three- or six-months (but, in the case of a six-month interest period, every three-months). The entire principal amount of the Additional Notes is due and payable on September 1, 2024 (the “Maturity Date”). The Additional Notes do not amortize and the entire principal balance is due in a single payment on the Maturity Date.

The Company’s obligations under the A&R Note Purchase Agreement are unconditionally guaranteed by certain of the Company’s subsidiaries and secured by a lien on substantially all of the present and future property and assets of the Company and such subsidiaries, in each case, subject to customary exceptions and exclusions.

The Additional Notes issued on the Effective Date and the related guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act, and have been offered and sold in reliance on the exemption from the registration provided by Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act. The Additional Notes and the related guarantees may not be offered or sold in the United States without registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.

The Company plans to use the proceeds of the Additional Notes to fund its ongoing operations. The Company is continuing to work with the Collateral Agent and the Purchaser toward a definitive near-term resolution of its financing issues that will strengthen its balance sheet and that will benefit the Company’s stakeholders, including its vendors and other creditors and its stockholders. Such resolution remains subject to a number of factors, including negotiation of definitive documentation, and no assurance can be given that these efforts will conclude successfully.

The foregoing description of the Sixth Amendment does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Sixth Amendment, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.

Item 2.03

Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant

The information set forth below under Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.  

Item 4.02

Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review

On September 19, 2023, the Audit Committee (the “Audit Committee”) of the Board of Directors of the Company, in consultation with the Company’s management, determined that, as a result of apparent errors primarily related to revenue recognition associated with bill and hold transactions  that were identified in the course a review by the Audit Committee of certain financial reporting related and other matters, the Company’s previously issued consolidated financial statements as of each and for each of the following fiscal periods are materially incorrect, require restatement and should no longer be relied upon:

The first three fiscal quarters of the fiscal year ended March 31, 2023 and the comparable periods of the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022;
The fiscal year ended March 31, 2022; and
The fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 (the “Subject Periods”).

The Company currently intends to file the restated financial statements with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) as soon as practicable after the Audit Committee’s ongoing review is complete, the restated financial statements are complete and have been audited or reviewed by Marcum LLP (“Marcum”), the Company’s independent registered accounting firm, and the required periodic reports are finalized.

“Bill and hold” sales generally are sales meeting specified criteria under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) to recognize revenue at the time title to goods is transferred to the customer, even though the seller does not ship the goods to the customer until a later time. In typical sales transactions other than those accounted for as bill and hold, title to goods is transferred to the customer at the point of shipment or delivery. As a result of a review concerning the Subject Periods, conducted with the assistance of independent advisors, the Audit Committee identified numerous instances where bill and hold transactions did not appear to meet the requirements for revenue recognition under GAAP. As a result, the Audit Committee has concluded that, in most such cases, revenue should not have been recognized until a later time when the products were subsequently shipped to the customer. As a result, the revenue and the related cost of goods sold reported by the Company for each of the Subject Periods does not accurately reflect the revenue earned in such periods.

The restatement of the financial statements has not been completed, and the full impact of the errors on the Company’s previously filed financial statements has not yet been determined.

Due to the impact of the above matters on the presentation of the Company’s financial statements in its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2023, in its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 and in its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2023, the Company has not timely filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2023 or its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2023 with the SEC, and may not timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2023. The Company’s ongoing negotiations with the Collateral Agent and the Purchaser also contributed to the delays in filing its Annual Report and Quarterly Report.

As part of the consideration of the above-described matters, the Company has and will continue to assess the underlying internal control deficiencies that allowed these issues to go undetected and will provide its conclusion regarding control deficiencies and remedial measures in the filings referenced in this Item 4.02.

The Audit Committee has discussed the matters described in this Item 4.02 with Marcum.

every jurisdiction where its assets are located and wherever necessary to carry out its business and operations, except in jurisdictions where the failure to be so qualified or in good standing has not had, and could not be reasonably expected to have, a Material Adverse Effect; and

2.The execution, delivery and performance of this Sixth Amendment has been duly authorized by all necessary action on the part of each Note Party that is a party hereto.

D. OTHER AGREEMENTS

1.Continuing Effectiveness of Note Documents.  As amended hereby, all terms of the Note Purchase Agreement and the other Note Documents shall be and remain in full force and effect and shall constitute the legal, valid, binding and enforceable obligations of the Note Parties party thereto.  To the extent any terms and conditions in any of the other Note Documents shall contradict or be in conflict with any terms or conditions of the Note Purchase Agreement, after giving effect to this Sixth Amendment, such terms and conditions are hereby deemed modified and amended accordingly to reflect the terms and conditions of the Note Purchase Agreement as modified and amended hereby. Upon the effectiveness of this Sixth Amendment such terms and conditions are hereby deemed modified and amended accordingly to reflect the terms and conditions of the Note Purchase Agreement as modified and amended hereby.

2.Reaffirmation of Guaranty.  Each Guarantor consents to the execution and delivery by the Note Parties of this Amendment and the consummation of the transactions described herein, and ratifies and confirms the terms of the Guaranty to which such Guarantor is a party with respect to the indebtedness now or hereafter outstanding under the Note Purchase Agreement as amended hereby and all promissory notes issued thereunder. Each Guarantor acknowledges that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or in any other document evidencing any indebtedness of the Note Parties to the Purchasers or any other obligation of the Note Parties, or any actions now or hereafter taken by the Purchasers with respect to any obligation of the Note Parties, the Guaranty to which such Guarantor is a party (i) is and shall continue to be a primary obligation of such Guarantor, (ii) is and shall continue to be an absolute, unconditional, continuing and irrevocable guaranty of payment, and (iii) is and shall continue to be in full force and effect in accordance with its terms.  Nothing contained herein to the contrary shall release, discharge, modify, change or affect the original liability of any Guarantor under the Guaranty to which such Guarantor is a party.    

3.Acknowledgment of Perfection of Security Interest. Each Note Party hereby acknowledges that, as of the date hereof, the security interests and liens granted to Collateral Agent and the Purchasers under the Note Purchase Agreement and the other Note Documents are in full force and effect, are properly perfected and are enforceable in accordance with the terms of the Note Purchase Agreement and the other Note Documents.

4.Reservation of Rights. The parties agree that this Sixth Amendment does not constitute a waiver of any right, power, privilege, claim or remedy that the Purchaser would be entitled to exercise as a result of any and all events that may have occurred or that, with the passage of time and/or the giving of notice would constitute an Event of Default under the Note Documents and other defaults that may have occurred under one or more of the Note Documents or may occur from time to time after the date hereof. Accordingly, the Company is hereby notified that:


(a)The Purchaser reserves the right to enforce and avail itself of any and all rights, powers, privileges, claims and remedies provided in the Note Purchase Agreement and the other Note Documents against the Company and any and all other obligors thereunder and the Collateral, including all rights and remedies available at law or in equity (individually and collectively, as the context may require, “Enforcement of Rights”).
(b)The Purchaser will continue to actively monitor the situation and evaluate its options and expects the Company’s continued full cooperation in connection therewith.
(c)All of the rights, powers, privileges, claims and remedies of the Purchaser under the Note Documents and applicable law are hereby expressly reserved and neither any delay or omission by the Purchaser in the exercise of any Enforcement of Rights shall impair any such right, power, privilege, claim or remedy, or shall be construed to be a waiver thereof or any acquiescence therein. The Note Purchase Agreement and the other Note Documents shall continue to be, and shall remain, in full force and effect in accordance with their respective terms. There is no continuing agreement to forbear, or assurance of any forbearance, by the Purchaser and failure of the Purchaser to undertake any Enforcement of Rights at this time shall not constitute a course of dealing. For the avoidance of doubt, this Sixth Amendment does not constitute the exercise of any Enforcement of Rights, nor does it constitute a waiver or forbearance of any right of the Purchaser to, at any time, commence and undertake any Enforcement of Rights, which such rights are hereby expressly reserved by the Purchaser.
(d)The Company is further advised that no oral communication or course of dealing from or on behalf of the Purchaser by any party shall constitute any agreement, commitment, or evidence of any assurance or intention of the Purchaser with respect to the subject matter hereof. Any agreement, commitment, assurance, forbearance or intention of the Purchaser shall be effective only if in writing and duly executed by the Purchaser, as the case may be.
(e)Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Purchaser is under no obligation to honor any request for further waivers of any provision of the Note Purchase Agreement and this Sixth Amendment shall not be deemed to establish a course of conduct so as to justify an expectation by the Company that the Purchaser will agree to any such waivers and the Company shall comply strictly with all of the terms and conditions of the Note Documents from and after the date hereof.

5.Effect of Agreement.  Except as set forth expressly herein, all terms of the Note Purchase Agreement, as amended hereby, and the other Note Documents shall be and remain in full force and effect and shall constitute the legal, valid, binding and enforceable obligations of the Note Parties to the Purchasers and Collateral Agent.  The execution, delivery and effectiveness of this Sixth Amendment shall not operate as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of the Purchasers under the Note Purchase Agreement, nor constitute a waiver of any provision of the Note Purchase Agreement, in each case, except as expressly provided herein. This Sixth Amendment shall constitute a Note Document for all purposes of the Note Purchase Agreement.

6.Governing Law. This Sixth Amendment shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the internal laws of the State of New York and all applicable federal laws of the United States of America.

7.No Novation.This Sixth Amendment is not intended by the parties to be, and shall not be construed to be, a novation of the Note Purchase Agreement and the other Note Documents


or an accord and satisfaction in regard thereto.

8.Costs and Expenses.  The Note Parties agrees to pay on demand all costs and expenses of Purchaser and Collateral Agent in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of this Amendment, including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and out-of-pocket expenses of outside counsel for Purchaser and Collateral Agent with respect thereto.

9.Counterparts.  This Sixth Amendment may be executed by one or more of the parties hereto in any number of separate counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which, taken together, shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument.  Delivery of an executed counterpart of this Sixth Amendment by facsimile transmission, electronic transmission (including delivery of an executed counterpart in .pdf format) shall be as effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart hereof.

10.Binding Nature.  This Sixth Amendment shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto, their respective successors, successors-in-titles, and assigns.  No third party beneficiaries are intended in connection with this Sixth Amendment.

11.Entire Understanding.  This Sixth Amendment sets forth the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the matters set forth herein, and shall supersede any prior negotia­tions or agreements, whether written or oral, with respect thereto.

12.Release.  (a) Each Note Party hereby releases, acquits, and forever discharges Collateral Agent and each of the Purchasers, and each and every past and present subsidiary, affiliate, stockholder, officer, director, agent, servant, employee, representative, and attorney of Collateral Agent and the Purchasers (each a “Releasee”), from any and all claims, causes of action, suits, debts, liens, obligations, liabilities, demands, losses, costs and expenses (including attorneys' fees) of any kind, character, or nature whatsoever, known or unknown, fixed or contingent, which such Note Party may have or claim to have now or which may hereafter arise out of or connected with any act of commission or omission of Releasee existing or occurring on or prior to the date of this Sixth Amendment or any instrument executed on or prior to the date of this Sixth Amendment including, without limitation, any claims, liabilities or obligations arising with respect to the Note Purchase Agreement or the other of the Note Documents.  The provisions of this paragraph shall be binding upon each Note Party and shall inure to the benefit of Releasees, and their respective heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns, and the other released parties set forth herein.  No Note Party is aware of any claim or offset against, or defense or counterclaim to, any Note Party’s obligations or liabilities under the Note Purchase Agreement or any other Note Document.  The provisions of this Section shall survive payment in full of the Obligations, full performance of the terms of this Sixth Amendment and the Note Documents, and/or Collateral Agent’s or each Purchaser’s actions to exercise any remedy available under the Note Documents or otherwise.  Each Note Party warrants and represents that such Note Party is the sole and lawful owner of all right, title and interest in and to all of the claims released hereby and each Note Party has not heretofore voluntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, assigned or transferred or purported to assign or transfer to any person any such claim or any portion thereof.
