Secured Credit Facility
On April 27, 2018, the Company’s subsidiaries, Iterum Therapeutics International Limited, Iterum Therapeutics US Holding Limited and Iterum Therapeutics US Limited (the Borrowers), entered into a loan and security agreement (Loan and Security Agreement) with SVB pursuant to which SVB agreed to lend the Borrowers up to $30,000 in two term loans. $15,000 of the secured credit facility was funded on closing. A second draw of up to $15,000 was available to the Company through October 31, 2019, upon satisfaction of either of the following: (i) the achievement by the Company of both non-inferiority and superiority primary endpoints from its Phase 3 uncomplicated urinary tract infection (uUTI) trial, as well as reporting satisfactory safety data from the trial, or (ii) the achievement of non-inferiority primary endpoints from both its Phase 3 uUTI and complicated urinary tract infection (cUTI) trials, as well as reporting satisfactory safety data from the trials. A non-utilization fee of 1.50% of the aggregate undrawn principal amount was to apply if the Company satisfied the above conditions but chose not to draw down the second term loan. The Company did not satisfy the conditions for the second draw above before the deadline of October 31, 2019.
Required monthly amortization payments for the initial $15,000 draw commenced on November 1, 2019 and total principal repayments of $3,103 were made during the six months ended June 30, 2021. Interest accrues at a floating per annum rate equal to the greater of (i) 8.31%; or (ii) 3.89% above the Wall Street Journal prime rate, and is payable monthly in arrears. All outstanding principal, plus a 4.20% final interest payment, will be due and payable on the earliest to occur of March 1, 2022 (the maturity date), the acceleration of the term loan or the prepayment of the term loan. The final payment fee of $630, which represents 4.2% of the funded loan, is accreted using the effective interest method over the life of the loan as interest expense. Voluntary prepayments are permitted at any time, subject to a prepayment fee of 4.00% in the first year, 3.00% in the second year, and 2.00% thereafter.
In connection with the initial $15,000 draw, the Company issued SVB and Life Sciences Fund II LLC (LSF) warrants to purchase an aggregate of 19,890 Series B convertible preferred shares (which converted into warrants to purchase 19,890 ordinary shares upon the Company’s initial public offering (IPO)) at an exercise price of $18.85 per share. If the second term loan had been drawn down, each of SVB and LSF would have been automatically entitled to purchase additional ordinary shares in an aggregate amount equal to 2.50% of the second term loan divided by the applicable exercise price.
The loan proceeds were allocated based on the relative fair values of the debt instrument and the warrant instrument. The fair value of the warrants and the closing costs were recorded as debt discounts and are being amortized using the effective interest rate method over the term of the loan. The effective annual interest rate of the outstanding debt is approximately 12.51% as of June 30, 2021. The Company recognized $164 and $374 of interest expense related to the loan agreement during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively, including $42 and $102 related to the accretion of the debt discounts and deferred financing costs during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively and $366 and $776 of interest expense related to the loan agreement during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, including $113 and $229 related to the accretion of the debt discounts and deferred financing costs during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively.
In connection with the Private Placement, Iterum Bermuda was joined as a party to the Loan and Security Agreement as a borrower and the Loan and Security Agreement was amended on January 16, 2020 to, among other things, modify the definition of subordinated debt to include the RLNs and Exchangeable Notes.
2025 Exchangeable Notes
On January 21, 2020, the Company completed a Private Placement pursuant to which its wholly owned subsidiary, Iterum Bermuda issued and sold $51.6 million aggregate principal amount of 6.500% Exchangeable Notes and $0.1 million aggregate principal amount of RLNs, to a group of accredited investors. On September 8, 2020, the Company completed a Rights Offering pursuant to which Iterum Bermuda issued and sold $0.2 million aggregate principal amount of 6.500% Exchangeable Notes and $0.02 million aggregate principal amount of RLNs, to existing shareholders. The Securities were sold in Units with each Unit consisting of an Exchangeable Note in the original principal amount $1,000 and 50 RLNs. The Units were sold at a price of $1,000 per Unit.
At any time on or after January 21, 2021, subject to specified limitations, the Exchangeable Notes are exchangeable for the Company’s ordinary shares, cash or a combination of ordinary shares and cash, at the Company’s election, at an exchange rate of 1,286.1845 shares per $1,000 principal and interest on the Exchangeable Notes (equivalent to an exchange price of approximately $0.7775 per ordinary share) as of November 2, 2020, which exchange rate was adjusted from an initial exchange rate of 1,000 shares per $1,000 principal and interest on the Exchangeable Notes (equivalent to an initial exchange price of $1.00 per ordinary share) and is subject to further adjustment pursuant to the terms of the Exchangeable Notes Indenture. Any accrued and unpaid interest being exchanged will be calculated to include all interest accrued on the Exchangeable Notes being exchanged to, but excluding, the exchange settlement date. Beginning on January 21, 2021 to June 30, 2021, certain noteholders of $39.2 million aggregate principal amount of Exchangeable Notes have exchanged their notes for an aggregate of 53,888,331 of the Company’s ordinary shares, which included accrued and unpaid interest relating to such notes. The aggregate principal amount of Exchangeable Notes outstanding as of June 30, 2021 was $12.6 million.
In addition, the Exchangeable Notes will become due and payable by the Company upon the occurrence of a Fundamental Change as defined in the Exchangeable Notes Indenture. The Company will be required to pay the holder of the Exchangeable Notes the greater of three times the outstanding principal amount of such Exchangeable Note and the consideration that would be received by the holder of such Exchangeable Note in connection with such Fundamental Change if the holder had exchanged its note for ordinary shares immediately prior to the consummation of such Fundamental Change, plus any accrued and unpaid interest.
The Company evaluates its debt and equity issuances to determine if those contracts, or embedded components of those contracts, qualify as derivatives under ASC 815-15, Derivatives and Hedging, requiring separate recognition in the Company’s financial statements. The Company evaluated the accounting for the issuance of the Exchangeable Notes and concluded that the embedded exchange option and change of control feature are considered a Derivative liability under ASC 815-15 requiring bifurcation, from the Exchangeable Notes, as it does not qualify for the scope exceptions for contracts in an entity’s own equity given the terms of the Exchangeable Notes. The exchange option and change of control feature are accounted for as a Derivative liability, under ASC 815-15, and are required to be separated and recorded as a single liability, which is revalued each reporting period with the resulting change in fair value reflected in other income / (expense), net, in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.
The fair value of the Derivative liability related to the Private Placement on January 21, 2020 was $27,038, and the fair value of the Derivative liability related to the Rights Offering was $82, both of which were recorded as a reduction to the book value of the host debt contract. This debt discount is being amortized to interest expense over the term of the debt using the effective interest method. Transaction costs amounting to $2,815 were allocated to the exchange option. These costs are reflected in financing transaction costs in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss in the year ended December 31, 2020. Transaction costs amounting to $2,814 were allocated to the debt host and capitalized in the host debt book value.
In circumstances where the embedded exchange option in a convertible instrument is required to be bifurcated, and there are other embedded derivative instruments in the convertible instrument that are required to be bifurcated, the derivative instruments are accounted for as a single, compound derivative instrument. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is reassessed at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not settlement of the derivative instrument is expected within twelve months of the balance sheet date.
The Company determined that all other features of the Exchangeable Notes were clearly and closely associated with a debt host and did not require bifurcation as a Derivative liability. The initial value of the Exchangeable Notes on inception, net of transaction costs, was $9,891.
The Company recognized $232 and $668 of interest expense related to the Exchangeable Notes during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively and $827 and $1,479 of interest expense related to the Exchangeable Notes during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. The Company recognized $603 and $1,711 related to the amortization of the debt discounts and deferred financing costs during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively, and $2,013 and $3,602 related to the amortization of the debt discounts and deferred financing costs during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. These amounts are recorded in interest expense, net in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and June 30, 2020. The balance of the Exchangeable Notes as of June 30, 2021 is as follows:
Payment Protection Program
On April 3, 2020, the SBA launched the Program following the signing of the CARES Act on March 27, 2020. On April 30, 2020, the Borrower entered into the PPP loan with the Lender under the Program, pursuant to the Company receiving a PPP loan of $744 with a fixed 1% annual interest rate and a maturity of two years. Under the terms of the agreement, there shall be no payments due by the Company until after the Deferral Period. Following the Deferral Period, equal monthly repayments of principal and interest will be due to fully amortize the principal amount outstanding on the PPP loan by the maturity date. The SBA forgave $340 of the loan in November 2020. Monthly amortization payments on the remaining loan balance of $404 began in December 2020 and total principal repayments of $154 were made during the six months ended June 30, 2021.
