On August 6, 2015, Legacy Airspan issued Golden Wayford Limited a $10.0 million subordinated Convertible Promissory Note (the “Golden Wayford Note”) pursuant to a Subordinated Convertible Note Purchase Agreement. The Golden Wayford Note was amended and restated on November 28, 2017, to reduce the interest rate thereon and to reflect the application of the payment of $1.0 million of principal on such note. The Golden Wayford Note had an original maturity date of February 16, 2016, which through subsequent amendments was extended to June 30, 2020. The conversion rights related to this agreement expired on its maturity date, June 30, 2020, and on this date the loan was reclassified from Subordinated Convertible Debt to Subordinated Debt.


The principal and accrued interest under the Golden Wayford Note would have been automatically converted into common shares at the time of the next equity financing and consummated prior to, on or after the maturity date (June 30, 2020). Such conversion right expired in accordance with its term. Interest accrues at 5.0% per annum and is payable quarterly, however, because such payment is prohibited by the terms of the subordination, interest is (in accordance with the terms of the related promissory note) paid in kind.


The Golden Wayford Note is subordinate to the obligations under the Fortress Credit Agreement (see Note 11). A limited waiver under the Fortress Credit Agreement waives each actual and prospective default and event of default existing under the Fortress Credit Agreement directly as a result of the non-payment of the Golden Wayford Note.


The Company had subordinated debt outstanding of $9.0 million, plus $1.6 million and $1.1 million of accrued interest as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.
