INTRUSION Closes Unsecured Notes Financing
PLANO, Texas, March 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — INTRUSION Inc. (NASDAQ: INTZ), a leader in cyberattack prevention solutions, today announced that on March 10, 2022, the Company (i) sold an 7.0% unsecured note under a securities purchase agreement with Streeterville Capital, LLC in the aggregate principal amount of $5,350,000 in exchange for $5,000,000 less certain reimbursed expenses (“Note 1”) and (ii) received an option to sell another 7.0% unsecured note on substantially similar terms (“Note 2” and, together with “Note 1”, the “Notes”). The option to sell Note 2 is subject to, among other things, the Company obtaining shareholder approval under Nasdaq rules within 180 days for the issuance of shares of its common stock upon potential redemptions of the Notes in amounts that exceed 19.99% of the outstanding common stock. The Company expects the net proceeds from the issuance of Note 1 to be approximately $4.7 million and intends to use the proceeds from such issuance for general corporate purposes.
The Notes have an interest rate of 7.0% per annum, which may be increased in certain circumstances. The maturity date of each Note is 18 months from the issuance date of such Note. Beginning six months after the issuance date of the applicable Note, the holder has the right to redeem up to $500,000 of the outstanding balance of such Note per month. Payments may be made by the Company, generally at the Company’s option, (a) in cash, (b) by paying the redemption amount in the form of shares of its common stock with the number of redemption shares being equal to the portion of the applicable redemption amount divided by the Redemption Conversion Price or (c) a combination of cash and shares of its common stock. The “Redemption Conversion Price” will equal 85% multiplied by the average of the two lowest daily volume-weighted average prices per share of the common stock during the 15 trading days immediately preceding the date that the holder delivers notice electing to redeem a portion of the Note. The Company’s right to satisfy the redemption amount in common stock is subject to certain limitations. Additional details regarding the purchase and the terms of the Notes may be found in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
