|Item 2.04||Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement.|
On July 26, 2017, SITO Mobile, Ltd., (the “Company”) received a purported notice (the “Notice”) of default and acceleration of obligations under that certain Revenue Sharing and Note Purchase Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), dated October 3, 2014 (and as amended March 1, 2016), by and among the Company, SITO Mobile Solutions, Inc., our wholly-owned subsidiary, SITO Mobile R&D IP, LLC, our wholly-owned subsidiary, Fortress Credit Co. LLC, and CF DB EZ LLC. As of June 30, 2017, there was approximately $4.5 million aggregate principal amount outstanding under the Loan Agreement. In addition, the Loan Agreement provides that the Revenue Purchaser (as defined in the Loan Agreement) is entitled to a revenue stream deriving from the Company’s patents, of up to (i) $5,000,000, if paid in full prior to March 31, 2018 and (ii) $7,500,000 thereafter, which could also be subject to acceleration following the occurrence of a bona fide Event of Default.
The purported notice of default alleges, without merit, that the Company had undergone a Change of Control under the terms of the Loan Agreement and has breached its obligations to provide timely information with respect to the Company’s intellectual property to the holders of notes under the Loan Agreement, in addition to other alleged minor technical and curable defaults. In fact, no Change of Control within the meaning of the Loan Agreement has occurred and the Company is in the process of providing fulsome and timely disclosure to the holders of the Notes in response to a request received four business days prior to the purported notice of default.
The Company believes that it has fully complied with all of the covenants under the Loan Agreement, and it believes each of the claims that an Event of Default has occurred are without merit and has provided notice of the same to the holder as attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1. Nevertheless, in accordance with Instruction No. 3 to this Item, the Company is filing a Current Report on Form 8-K in respect of the Notice.
