On August 6, 2015, Legacy Airspan issued Golden Wayford Limited a $10.0 million subordinated Convertible Note Promissory Note (the “Golden Wayford Note”) pursuant to the subordinated Convertible Purchase Agreement dated such date. 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.


On December 30, 2020, Pacific Western Bank (“PWB”) and Ally Bank (“Ally”) assigned their interests in a loan facility under the Second Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement with Legacy Airspan (the “PWB Facility”) to certain new lenders pursuant to an assignment agreement (the “Assignment Agreement”) and PWB entered into a resignation and assignment agreement (the “Agent Resignation Agreement”) pursuant to which PWB resigned in its capacity as agent under all of the transaction documents and DBFIP ANI LLC (“Fortress”) became the successor agent (as defined in the Agent Resignation Agreement), replacing PWB in such capacity under the PWB Facility.


The Golden Wayford Note was subordinate to the PWB Facility and, after giving effect to the Assignment Agreement, the Resignation Agreement and a Reaffirmation and Omnibus Amendment, is now subordinate to the obligations under Legacy Airspan’s Assignment Agreement, Resignation and Assignment Agreement and Credit Agreement (the “Fortress Credit Agreement”) with DBFIP ANI LLC (“Fortress”) (see Note 8). 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 $1.4 million and $1.1 million of accrued interest as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.
