Agrify Announces Transfer of its Existing Credit Facility and Expected New Equity Investment

30 October 2023

TROY, Mich., Oct. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Agrify Corporation (Nasdaq: AGFY) (“Agrify” or the “Company”), a leading provider of innovative cultivation and extraction solutions for the cannabis industry, today announced that CP Acquisition LLC (the “New Lender”) and its existing institutional lender (the “Existing Lender”), have signed a definitive agreement pursuant to which the New Lender purchased all of the outstanding convertible and senior secured notes of Agrify held by the Existing Lender and plans to participate in a future equity raise to inject new capital in the Company. Raymond Chang, the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, is one of the principals of the New Lender.

“In 2023, we made tremendous efforts to reduce our operating loss and cash burn and have also worked to settle trade payables and reduce and restructure our liabilities,” said Mr. Chang. “We are also seeing really encouraging yield and performance results using our proprietary vertical farming units from our newly turned-on customer facilities and, with these successful model facilities, are continuing to gain interest and have signed up several new cultivation facilities to use our equipment. On the extraction side of the business, our comprehensive solution offerings and new products continue to gain interest both domestically and internationally. We believe that with this significant reduction in debt as well as with the extended maturity of the outstanding debt and the potential for future injections of capital, Agrify will be positioned to rebound and reestablish itself as the preeminent solution provider for the cannabis industry.”

Key Transaction Terms

  • Immediately prior to the Note Purchase closing, the Existing Lender converted $3.0 million in principal amount outstanding under the Senior Secured Note due 2025 issued by Agrify to the Existing Lender on August 19, 2022 (the “August 2022 Senior Secured Note”), plus $1.1 million accrued interest, to warrants to purchase 2,809,669 shares of Agrify common stock (“Common Stock”) at a conversion rate equal to the Minimum Price pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rules, along with the exchange of the right to receive 375,629 shares held in abeyance under a prior exchange agreement for the same number of warrants. The warrants have an exercise price of $0.001 per share.
  • Subject to shareholder approval, the number of shares underlying the warrants issued to the Existing Lender shall be proportionally increased in the event that Mr. Chang or any of his affiliates acquire securities from Agrify through purchase or conversion or modify the conversion price of any securities held by them.
  • The New Lender has purchased all remaining outstanding convertible notes and senior secured notes held by the Existing Lender (the “Note Purchase”), with an aggregate principal amount of approximately $8.84 million outstanding under the convertible note originally issued to the Existing Lender in March 2023 (the “March 2023 Convertible Note”) and an aggregate principal amount of approximately $6.67 million outstanding under the August 2022 Senior Secured Note.
  • At a future date after the Note Purchase closing, subject to shareholder approval, the New Lender plans to (a) convert the remaining balance of the March 2023 Convertible Note to Common Stock and to amend the applicable conversion price and (b) purchase, for cash or convertible debt, no less than $3.0 million of Common Stock.
  • At a future date after the Note Purchase closing, subject to shareholder approval, the New Lender and Agrify intend to amend and restate the senior secured note originally issued in August 2022 to grant the New Lender the right to convert that senior secured note, in whole or in part, to Common Stock.
  • The New Lender agreed to waive any events of default under the acquired notes until December 31, 2023 and to enter into an agreement with Agrify to extend the maturity date of the acquired notes until December 31, 2025.
