Item 1.01    Entry into Material Definitive Agreement.
On December 19, 2013, Arrhythmia Research Technology, Inc. (the “Company”) sold an aggregate of $500,000 in Subordinated Promissory Notes (the “Notes”). The Notes bear interest on the unpaid principal at a simple annual interest rate equal to 10% per annum from the date of issuance until the second anniversary thereof and, following the second anniversary, bear interest at a simple annual interest rate of 12% per annum and until the interest and principal thereunder is repaid. Interest only shall be payable in cash on a quarterly basis. The Notes mature on December 19, 2016 and are prepayable by the Company at any time following the first anniversary thereof without penalty. Each investor entered into a Subordination Agreement providing that the indebtedness pursuant to the Notes shall be subordinated to all indebtedness of the Company pursuant to its March 2013 multi-year credit facility with a Massachusetts based bank.
For every $50,000 in principal amount of Note, each investor received a Warrant to purchase 10,000 shares of common stock (collectively, the “Warrants”). The Warrants are exercisable during the period commencing six months after issuance and for three years from issuance, at an exercise price equal to $3.51 per share, namely, the closing market price of the Company’s common stock on the day prior to the closing date of the offering. The Warrants contain standard provisions relating to antidilution adjustments for stock splits and recapitalizations. The Warrants also provide that the Investors shall have standard piggy-back registration rights on one occasion in the event the Company files a registration statement (other than a registration statement on Form S-4 or S-8) to register the shares of common stock subject to standard limitations in the discretion of any underwriter.
Net proceeds from the offering will be used for working capital.
The foregoing descriptions of the Notes, Subordination Agreement and Warrants are qualified in their entirety by the forms of the Note, Subordination Agreement and Warrant which are attached as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3, respectively.
