Item 1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

The information set forth in Item 2.03 and 5.02 is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.

 

Item 2.03Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

 

On November 29, 2021, EBET, Inc. (the “Company”) and the subsidiaries of the Company (the “Guarantors”) entered a credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with CP BF Lending, LLC (the “Lender”), pursuant to which the Lender agreed to make a single loan to the Company in the original amount of $30,000,000 (the “Loan”). The Loan required the Company to maintain certain minimum liquidity and other financial and other covenants. As previously disclosed, the Company has received multiple waivers from the Lender in the past with respect to such covenants with the final waiver expiring on June 30, 2023.

 

On June 30, 2023, the Company, the subsidiaries of the Company and the Lender entered into a forbearance agreement (the “Forbearance Agreement”). Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement, the Company acknowledged, among other items, that, as June 30, 2023, it was in default under the Credit Agreement, the Lender had the right to accelerate the Loan, and the Lender had the right to impose the default rate of interest under the Credit Agreement. Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement, the Lender agreed to forbear from exercising its rights and remedies against the Company and the Guarantors under the Credit Documents until the earlier of September 15, 2023, which may be extended by the Lender, or until a termination event occurs pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement. A termination event under the Forbearance Agreement consists of the filing of a bankruptcy proceeding by the Company or any Guarantor, the occurrence of a new event of default under the Credit Agreement, or the failure by the Company or any Guarantor to perform any material requirement, covenant, or obligation under the Forbearance Agreement. During the forbearance period, the Lender agreed, among other items, not to accelerate the Loan, initiate any bankruptcy filings, or apply any default rates of interest. As partial consideration for the Lender agreeing to enter into the Forbearance Agreement, the Company paid a forbearance fee equal to 50 basis points of the outstanding principal amount of the Loan (or $130,425.16), which amount was added to the principal balance of the loan. In addition, on June 30, 2023, the Company made a prepayment of the Loan in the amount of $2.0 million, which in turn reduced the minimum cash balance requirement under the Credit Agreement to $0. Upon the execution of the Forbearance Agreement and after the receipt of the forbearance fee and loan repayment, the principal amount of the Loan is $26,215,457.61.

 

In connection with the Forbearance Agreement, the Lender agreed to provide the Company with a revolving line of credit in the amount of $2.0 million (the “Revolving Note”), with any advances under the Revolving Note to be made in the sole discretion of the Lender. The Revolving Note will have a maturity date of November 29, 2024 and carry an interest rate of 15.0% per annum, provided that upon an occurrence of default the interest rate will increase to the default rate under the Loan. The Revolving Note shall be an Obligation as defined in the Credit Agreement and as such shall be secured by the collateral in which the Company and the Guarantors have granted liens and security interests to the Lender in connection with the Loan. All discretionary advances shall terminate automatically and all outstanding principal together with accrued but unpaid interest and fees shall become immediately due and payable, without notice to or action by any party, on the earlier of the termination date of the Forbearance Agreement, or the maturity date of the Revolving Note, unless otherwise extended by the Lender.

 

Item 3.02.Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

Reference is made to the disclosure set forth under Item 2.03 above, which disclosure is incorporated herein by reference.

 

The issuance of the Revolving Note was exempt from registration pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and/or Rule 506(b) of Regulation D promulgated thereunder, as transactions not involving a public offering.

Item 5.02Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

During June 2023, the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), the recently formed Strategic Alternatives Committee of the Board (see Item 8.01 below), and the Board reviewed and considered, and discussed with the Company’s executive officers, a plan to retain the Company’s executives through the conclusion of the Company’s strategic process by providing these officers with appropriate financial incentives to do so. In that regard, the Board and the Committees considered advice provided by the Company’s compensation consultant, Frederick W. Cook & Co., Inc. (“FW Cook”) and used FW Cook’s recommendations as part of their decision-making process in arriving at what the Board and the Committees regard as appropriate to achieve the Company’s retention goals. On June 30, 2023, the Compensation Committee and the Strategic Alternatives Committee reviewed and approved an executive retention plan, the Strategic Alternatives Committee recommended that the full Board approve it, and the Board did so.

 

Following the approval of the executive retention plan by the Committees and the Board and in accordance with the executive retention plan, on June 30, 2023, the Company agreed to enter into a Retention Letter Agreement (each, a “Retention Letter”), with each of Aaron Speech, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, and Matthew Lourie, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer.

 

Pursuant to the Retention Letters,

 

(a)Mr. Speach will be entitled to receive a cash retention bonus of $175,000 payable 20% upon execution of the Retention Letter, 40% after three months, and the remainder after six months, and

 

(b)Mr. Lourie will be entitled to an increase in his base salary to $320,000 and to receive a cash retention bonus of $240,000 payable 20% upon execution of the Retention Letter, 30% after three months, 30% after six months, and the remainder after nine months.

 

Any unpaid retention bonus will be paid earlier if the Company completes a strategic transaction (a “Transaction”), or if the executive is terminated without “cause”.

 

In addition, pursuant to the Retention Letters, each of Mr. Speach and Mr. Lourie will be eligible to receive a cash transaction bonus equal to 0.95% of the gross proceeds of any Transaction, provided that the net proceeds from the Transaction are at least $26.0 million; and further provided that the executive may receive an additional 0.25% of the gross proceeds if the net proceeds from the Transaction are not less than the amount that would result in (a) the Company repaying its outstanding debt and all trade creditors, and (b) the Series A preferred holders and common shareholders receiving consideration of not less than the value of their equity holdings as of June 30, 2023 (the “Deal Threshold”).

 

If Mr. Speach and Mr. Lourie are terminated without “cause” prior to June 30, 2024, the Company agreed to pay a cash severance payment of:

 

(a)with respect to Mr. Speach, the greater of 1.0 times Mr. Speach’s base salary or the severance payable pursuant to Mr. Speach’s current employment agreement; and

 

(b)with respect to Mr. Lourie, 0.5 times Mr. Lourie’s base salary.

Item 8.01Other Events.

 

In addition to the amounts payable to Messrs. Speach and Lourie set forth above, the Company also agreed on June 30, 2023 to pay additional retention bonuses under the executive retention plan to two consultants and advisors of up to $310,000, in the aggregate, and additional cash transaction bonuses equal to 1.9% of the gross proceeds of any Transaction, provided that the net proceeds from the Transaction are at least $26.0 million; and provided further that an additional 0.50% of the gross proceeds will be payable if the net proceeds from the Transaction are not less than the Deal Threshold.

 

On June 7, 2023, the Board created a Strategic Alternatives Committee to review and evaluate potential strategic alternatives in its sole discretion and exercise related powers that are typical of such committees. The directors who are members of the Strategic Alternatives Committee are Christopher Downs (the Chairman), Dennis Neilander and Michael Nicklas. On June 30, 2023, the Compensation Committee and the Strategic Alternatives Committee reviewed and approved the payment of compensation to members of the Strategic Alternatives Committee in addition to the Company’s standard compensation arrangements for non-employee directors, the Strategic Alternatives Committee recommended that the full Board approve it, and the Board did so. Under this plan, the Chairman of the committee will receive a monthly retainer of $15,000 and the other two members of the committee will receive a monthly retainer of $12,000. These fee arrangements will be reevaluated if the committee remains in place after six months.

 

On June 28, 2023, based on the approval of the Strategic Alternatives Committee, that committee’s favorable recommendation to the Board, and the Board’s subsequent approval, the Company hired Houlihan Lokey Capital, Inc. (“Houlihan”) as the Company’s exclusive financial advisor to provide financial advisory and investment banking services in connection with one or more of a sale, recapitalization, restructuring or any other financial transactions involving the Company. The continued engagement of Houlihan is required by the Lender during the term of the Forbearance Agreement described in Item 2.03 above.

 

On November 29, 2021, the Company issued 37,700 shares of its Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Stock”) for a purchase price of $1,000.00 per share. Pursuant to the terms of the Preferred Stock, on April 28, 2023, the conversion price of the Preferred Stock was reduced from $28.00 per share to $0.71 per share. To date, the Company has received conversion notices with respect to 5,333 shares of Preferred Stock, resulting in the issuance of 9,028,538 shares of common stock, and 32,367 shares of Preferred Stock remain outstanding that are convertible into 56,081,982 shares of common stock. As of June 30, 2023, the Company has 34,218,213 shares of common stock outstanding.

k. In each of the following definitions and sections, the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to insert the phrase “and the Revolving Loan” or “or the Revolving Loan” as the context so requires, after the word “Loan” in each place where such word appears therein: definition of “Aspire Business Interest Expense;” “Aspire Excess Cash Flow;” “Borrowing;” “Excluded Taxes;” “Maturity Date;” “Obligations;” Section 2.3(a); Section 2.3(b); Section 2.6; Section 2.7(a); Section 5.1(f); Section 7.3(a); Section 7.4; Section 8.1(a); Section 8.2(a); Section 8.2(b); Section 8.2(d); Section 9.3(c); Section 9.4(b); Section 9.4(c); Section 9.12; Section 9.13; and Section 9.16.

 

10. Other Amendments.

 

a. The 2/14 Email as amended is further amended to delete the date “June 30, 2023” and to substitute the date “August 31, 2023” in place thereof.

 

b. The 2/13 Email as amended is further amended to i) delete the date “June 30, 2023” and to substitute the date “August 31, 2023]” in place thereof, and ii) delete the date “July 3” and to substitute the date “September 1, 2023” in place thereof.

 

11. Covenants.

 

a. The Lender hereby defers the requirement of Section 5.1(e) of the Credit Agreement and of the 2/13 Email as amended with respect to the Borrower’s obligation to deliver the Aspire Excess Cash Flow Certificate which deferral shall be in effect only for the Forbearance Period. This is a limited deferral for the Forbearance Period only and shall not be construed as a deferral of future compliance with Section 5.1(e) of the Credit Agreement.

 

b. Cash Flow Forecasts.

 

(i) Commencing on the Effective Date, and continuing on each Tuesday thereafter up through and including Tuesday October 3, 2023], the Borrower and its Subsidiaries shall deliver to the Lender a consolidated rolling thirteen-week cash flow forecast together with a detailed, weekly cash budget setting forth the Borrower's projected weekly cash revenue and weekly cash expenses. Such forecast and budget shall provide worst case, best case and most likely case scenarios and shall provide detailed information of cash received and expenses anticipated to be paid in each scenario (the “Cash Forecast File”). For each week, the Borrower shall recommend for the approval of the Lender the budget the Borrower wishes to implement. Lender reserves to right to reject the Borrower’s recommended budget. Notwithstanding the budget approved, the Borrower shall have the option to expend up to an additional FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS and 00/100 CENTS (US$50,000.00) per week in its discretion for unanticipated expenses (for purposes herein the term “unanticipated expenses” shall not include fees auto-debited or auto-charged to the Borrower at any time by JP Morgan Chase Bank and ADP Inc. payroll services) which the Borrower in its good faith assessment deems reasonable to pay. Such additional payments shall be immediately reported to the Lender.

 

(ii) The covenants in this Section 11(b) are expressly intended to survive the occurrence of the Termination Date and the expiration of the Forbearance Period unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the Borrower and the Lender.

 

c. The Credit Parties shall at all times maintain the engagement of Houlihan Lokey (the “Advisor”), at their own expense to assist the Credit Parties with, among other things, the potential sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries or a sale of the equity of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries (the “HL Engagement”). Such engagement shall continue to be on terms acceptable to the Lender. The Credit Parties shall not amend or modify the terms of the engagement without the consent of the Lender.

 

d. Upon the request of Lender, the Credit Parties shall engage and maintain such engagement, at their own expense, with a chief restructuring officer or similar advisor (“CRO”) within [10] business days after receipt of Lender’s request to assist the Credit Parties with financial restructuring and/or operational activities of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries. Such engagement shall be on terms acceptable to the Lender. The Credit Parties shall provide the Lender with a reasonable amount of time to review and comment on any such engagement letter prior to execution, which engagement letter shall include, among other things and not by way of limitation, authorization for the CRO to speak directly to the Lender without a Credit Party representative present, requirements for the CRO to provide the Lender with all material information prepared in the course of the CRO’s engagement immediately upon such information becoming available, requirements that the CRO participate in weekly status calls with Credit Parties’ management (including the Advisor retained by the Credit Parties, if applicable) and the Lender, and requirements that the CRO update the Lender on any other matters reasonably requested by the Lender with any such updates also to be provided to the Credit Parties by the CRO. The engagement letter of an CRO shall include a requirement that such Person be approved by and shall report directly to the Board of Directors or equivalent governing body of each Credit Party.

f. Senior Management of the Borrower shall participate in a telephonic meeting with the Lender at least once per calendar week at a time and date mutually agreed upon by the Borrower and the Lender, during which call the Borrower shall, among other things, update the Lender on all activities and progress toward execution one or more transactions contemplated by the HL Engagement.

 

12. Transfer of Assets. Each Credit Party agrees that it shall not, without the prior written consent of Lender, transfer an asset of any kind to any Person, including to an Affiliate.

 

13. Convera Payments. The Lender agrees to the Borrower’s continued use of Western Union or Convera Payment Solutions only for payment of non-U.S. vendors provided the amounts and the timing of such payments shall be substantially consistent with past practices and shall not create a breach of covenants regarding the amount of the Required Aspire Minimum Balance then in effect. Borrower agrees that the amount of funds to be transferred to Western Union or Convera Payment Solutions shall be reflected as an expense line item in the financial reporting provided to the Lender under Section 11(b) of this Agreement for the reporting period immediately prior to such anticipated transfer. To the extent necessary, at the Borrower’s option, a portion of transfers made pursuant to this Section 13 may be deemed to be an “unanticipated expense” for purposes of Section 11(b). The Lender reserves the right to withdraw this limited waiver upon reasonable written notice to the Borrower of no less than 14 days prior notice.

 

14. Reaffirmation of Loan Balance. The Borrower confirms that, as of the date hereof, upon giving effect to this Agreement and after having made the payment required in Section 7(c) and capitalizing the forbearance fee required in Section 7(b), it is indebted to the Lender in respect of the Loan in the principal amount of TWENTY-SIX MILLION TWO HUNDRED FIFTEEN THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED FIFTY-SEVEN DOLLARS and 61/100 CENTS(US$26,215,457.61), together with interest accrued and unpaid thereon (including PIK interest), together with all fees, costs, expenses and other charges due and owing by the Borrower under the Credit Documents and that all such amounts are unconditionally owing by the Borrower to the Lender, without offset, defense or counterclaim of any kind, nature or description whatsoever.

 

15. Credit Documents. This Agreement, together with the Revolving Note, the 2/13 Email and the 2/14 Email each constitute a “Credit Document” as defined in the Credit Agreement, as the same may be amended from time to time. All references in the Credit Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof” or words of like import referring to the Credit Agreement, and each reference in the other Credit Documents to the Credit Agreement, “thereunder”, “thereof” or words of like import referring to the Credit Agreement shall be deemed to refer to the Credit Agreement as modified by this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, any default by the Borrower or any Guarantor under the terms of this Agreement shall constitute an Event of Default under the Credit Agreement.

 

16. Governing Law, Jurisdiction, Counterparts, Jury Trial Waiver Confidentiality. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the law of New York without reference to its conflicts of law principles (other than Section 5-1401 of the New York General Obligations Law). The provisions of Sections 9.7, 9.8, 9.9 and 9.16 of the Credit Agreement are hereby incorporated by reference as if fully set forth herein and shall apply mutatis mutandis.

 

17. Effect on Credit Documents. The Credit Agreement and each of the other Credit Documents shall be and remain in full force and effect in accordance with their respective terms and are hereby ratified and confirmed in all respects. The execution, delivery, and performance of this Agreement shall not operate, except as expressly set forth herein, as a modification or waiver of any right, power, or remedy of the Lender under the Credit Agreement, or any other Credit Document. The amendments contained in this Agreement are limited to the specifics hereof, shall not apply with respect to any facts or occurrences other than those on which the same are based, shall not excuse future non-compliance by the Borrower or any Guarantor with respect to any Credit Document to which it is a party, and shall not operate as a waiver or forbearance to any further or other matter under the Credit Documents. Each Credit Party hereby ratifies and reaffirms (i) the validity, legality and enforceability of the Credit Documents; (ii) that its reaffirmation of the Credit Documents is a material inducement to the Lender to enter into this Agreement; and (iii) that its obligations under the Credit Documents shall remain in full force and effect until all the Obligations have been paid in full. Guarantors expressly agree that the Guaranty of each extends to all Obligations under the Credit Documents, including Obligations under the Revolving Note. The Borrower and each Credit Party represents and warrants that the representations and warranties contained in this Agreement, Credit Agreement and in the other Credit Documents are true and correct in all material respects (except that such materiality qualifier shall not be applicable to any representations and warranties that already are qualified or modified by materiality in the text thereof), except to the extent such representations and warranties specifically relate to an earlier date, in which case such representations and warranties were true and correct on and as of such earlier date.

The Lender may assign all or a portion of all of its rights and obligations under this Agreement.

 

19. No Amendment. Any amendment, or waiver of, or any consent given under, any provision of this Agreement shall be in writing and, in the case of any amendment, signed by the parties or their permitted successors and assigns.

 

20. Entire Agreement.

The Borrower and each Guarantor agree to cooperate with, and shall cause their Subsidiaries and their advisors to cooperate with, any financial advisors or appraisers that may from time to time be retained by or on behalf of the Lender, including, without limitation, providing reasonable access (upon reasonable advance notice) to their premises, personnel and books and records.

23. Reimbursement of Costs and Expenses. Each Credit Party agrees to pay all costs, fees and expenses of the Lender (including attorneys' fees), expended or incurred by the Lender in connection with the negotiation, preparation, administration and enforcement of this Agreement, the Credit Documents, the Obligations, any of the Collateral and all fees, costs and expenses incurred in connection with any bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding (including, without limitation, any adversary proceeding, contested matter or motion brought by the Lender or any other Person). Without in any way limiting the foregoing, each Credit Party hereby reaffirms its agreement under the applicable Credit Documents to pay or reimburse the Lender for certain costs and expenses incurred by the Lender.

US$2,000,000.00 dated as of June 30, 2023

 

FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the undersigned, EBET, Inc. f/k/a ESPORTS TECHNOLOGIES, INC., a Nevada corporation, as borrower under the Credit Agreement referenced below (the “Borrower”), promises to pay, on the earlier of the Termination Date (as defined in the Forbearance Agreement defined below) or the Maturity Date to the order of CP BF LENDING, LLC (hereinafter, together with its successors in title and assigns, called the “Lender”), the principal sum of TWO MILLION DOLLARS (US$2,000,000.00) (the “Revolving Loan Cap”), in immediately available funds or, if less, the aggregate unpaid principal amount of the Revolving Loan made by the Lender to the Borrower pursuant to the Credit Agreement to which reference is hereinafter made and to pay interest, in like money, on the unpaid principal amount owing hereunder from time to time from the date hereof until payment in full of such principal amount as provided in this Revolving Note (this “Revolving Note”) and in the Credit Agreement. Unless otherwise defined herein, all capitalized terms used herein which are defined in the Credit Agreement, the Forbearance Agreement or the Credit Documents (as defined in the Credit Agreement and amended from time to time) shall have the same meanings herein as therein.

 

1.       Credit Agreement. This Revolving Note is made and delivered by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.3(c) of the Credit Agreement, dated as of November 29, 2021, by and among the Borrower, the Guarantors party thereto and the Lender (as amended, restated, supplemented and otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”) and the Forbearance Agreement, dated as of June 30, 2023, by and among the Borrower, the Guarantors party thereto and the Lender (as amended, restated, supplemented and otherwise modified from time to time, the “Forbearance Agreement”) and is entitled to the benefits and is subject to the provisions of the Credit Agreement and the Forbearance Agreement.

 

2.       Terms of this Revolving Note Generally.

 

2.1. Revolving Note. This Revolving Note is a revolving note and in accordance with, and subject to, the provisions hereof, the Credit Agreement and the Forbearance Agreement, the Borrower may, at its option, borrow, pay, prepay and reborrow hereunder at any time prior to the Maturity Date or such earlier date as the obligations of the Borrower to the Lender under this Revolving Note and any other agreements between the Lender and the Borrower related to this Revolving Note shall become due and payable; provided, however, that in no event shall the principal balance outstanding hereunder exceed the face amount of this Revolving Note. This Revolving Note shall continue in full force and effect until all obligations and liabilities evidenced by this Revolving Note are indefeasibly paid in full and this Revolving Note is terminated, even if, from time to time, there are no amounts outstanding in respect of this Revolving Note. Nothing contained in this Revolving Note or otherwise is intended, nor shall constitute, an obligation or a commitment of the Lender to make any loan or advance; any requested loan or advance shall remain subject to the Lender’s sole and absolute discretion to fund such loan or advance.

 

3.       Payments.

 

3.1. Manner of Payments. All payments of principal and interest shall be payable pursuant to Section 2.9 of the Credit Agreement.

 

3.2. Payment of Interest. Interest on all amounts outstanding shall be payable in arrears (i) monthly on the tenth day of each month commencing the month following the date of this Revolving Note, and continuing thereafter on the same day of each succeeding month until the principal balance shall be paid in full, (ii) on the date of any repayment or prepayment, (iii) on the Maturity Date, and (iv) on the date payment is due after acceleration by the Lender.

3.3. Application of Payments. Any payments received by the Lender on account of this Revolving Note shall be applied in accordance with Section 2.9(c) and 2.11(a) of the Credit Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any payments received by the Lender after the occurrence of an Event of Default (including Specified Events of Default as defined in the Forbearance Agreement) or a Termination Event under the Credit Documents shall be applied in such manner and order as the Lender may determine in its sole discretion.

 

4.       Interest. Interest under this Note shall be as follows:

Commencing on the date of this Revolving Note, interest shall accrue on the aggregate principal balance outstanding from time to time under this Revolving Note and shall bear interest equal, each day, to a rate per annum equal to fifteen (15.0%) percent.

4.2. Maximum Rate of Interest. If pursuant to the terms of this Revolving Note, the Borrower is at any time obligated to pay interest on the principal balance at a rate in excess of the maximum interest rate permitted by applicable law for any loan or advance evidenced by this Revolving Note, the applicable interest rate shall be immediately reduced to such maximum rate and all previous payments in excess of the maximum rate shall be deemed to have been payments in reduction of principal and not on account of the interest due hereunder.

 

4.3. Default Rate. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Termination Event or after the Maturity Date, the principal amount outstanding under this Revolving Note, and to the extent permitted by applicable law, any past due interest payments under this Revolving Note or any fees or other amounts owed hereunder, in each case, shall thereafter bear interest (including, without limitation, interest, as provided in this Revolving Note, accruing after the filing of a petition initiating any insolvency proceedings, whether or not such interest accrues or is recoverable against the Borrower after the filing of such petition for purposes of the Bankruptcy Code or is an allowed claim in such proceeding) payable in cash on demand at the Default Rate. The Default Rate shall also apply from acceleration until this Revolving Note or any judgment thereon is paid in full.

 

5.       Discretionary Advances. All advances requested to be made under this Revolving Note are considered and made in the Lender’s sole and absolute discretion. The Lender is under no obligation to make discretionary loan advances. The proceeds of discretionary advances shall be used by the Borrower solely for the general working capital purposes of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries. No portion of the proceeds of the discretionary advances shall be used by the Borrower or any Subsidiary of the Borrower in any manner that may violate any Regulation or might cause the advance or the application of such discretionary advance proceeds to violate Regulation T, Regulation U or Regulation X of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or any other regulation thereof or to violate the Exchange Act, in each case as in effect on the date of the discretionary advance and such use of proceeds. The Borrower will not, directly or indirectly, use the proceeds of any discretionary advance, or lend, contribute or otherwise make available such proceeds to any Subsidiary, joint venture partner or other Person, (i) to fund any activities or business of or with any Person, or in any country or territory, that, at the time of such funding, is the subject of Sanctions, or (ii) in any other manner that would result in a violation of Sanctions by any Person.

The Funding Notice must be delivered to the Lender on a Business Day which is at least two (2) Business Days prior to the proposed Funding Date set forth in the Funding Notice.
