NOTE 13 - ROYALTY OBLIGATIONS, NET
In March 2019, the Company entered into two Subscription and Royalty Agreements (the “Subscription and Royalty Agreements”). One was with Louis and Carolyn Lucido CRT LLC, managed by Mr. Lucido, a member of the Company’s Board of Directors and the other one was with the J and R Galligan Revocable Trust, managed by Mr. Galligan, a holder of between 10% and 15% of the Company’s shares of common stock and a member of the Company’s Board of Directors. Pursuant to the Subscription and Royalty Agreements: (i) Each party would purchase shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), in the aggregate amount of $3,000,000 at a purchase price of $15.00 per share (the “Purchase Price”), for a total of 200,000 shares of Common Stock; and (ii) the Company shall pay each (a) a total of $37.50 from the gross revenue derived from each of its weight loss treatments sold in the United States starting on the first (1st) day that the first unit of the treatment is sold (the “Initial Sales Date”) and ending on the third (3rd) anniversary of the Initial Sales Date; and (b) a total of $25.00 from the gross revenue derived from each of its weight loss treatments sold in the United States starting on the day following the third (3rd) anniversary of the Initial Sales Date and ending on the fifteenth (15th) anniversary of the Initial Sales Date (the “Royalty”).
The Company accounted for this transaction as debt in accordance with ASC 470-10-25 and derived a debt discount, which is amortized using the straight line method over the expected life of the arrangement, which is 15 years. The Company has no obligation to repay the then outstanding balance if during the expected life of 15 years the treatment is discontinued. In order to record the discount of the liability, the Company fair valued the royalty and the difference between fair value of the royalty obligation and the gross projected future payments was $7,171,200 and was recorded as non-cash interest expense over the life of the liability and offset to additional paid in capital at inception.
During the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company amortized $477,436 and $477,436, respectively, as interest expense.
