LINE OF CREDIT GRID PROMISSORY NOTE
New York, New York
As of August 21, 2017 $500,000.00
1)FOR VALUE RECEIVED, on the Maturity Date, Function(x) Inc., a Delaware corporation, formerly known as Viggle Inc. (the “Borrower”), at its offices at 902 Broadway, 11th Floor, New York, New York 10010, promises to pay to the order of Reaz Islam (the “Lender”) at its offices, or at such other place as the Lender may designate in writing, the aggregate principal sum of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000) or, if less, the unpaid amount of all draws, plus accrued and unpaid interest due with respect to all outstanding draws, made by the Lender hereunder. This Line of Credit Grid Promissory Note shall be referred to herein as the “Grid Note” or this “Note”).
2) Maturity Date. The “Maturity Date” shall be the earlier to occur of (i) February 28, 2019 or (ii) upon a Change of Control Transaction, whichever comes first. For purposes hereof, a “Change of Control Transaction” means (i) a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Borrower or (ii) the issuance by the Borrower of Common Stock (as defined below) that results in any “person” or “group” (as these terms are used for purposes of Sections 13(d) and 14(d) of the 1934 Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder) becoming the “beneficial owner” (as defined in Rule 13d-3 promulgated under the 1934 Act) of a majority of the aggregate ordinary voting power represented by issued and outstanding Common Stock (other than as a result of, or in connection with, any merger, acquisition, consolidation or other business combination in which the Borrower is the surviving entity following the consummation thereof), excluding, with respect to each of (i) and (ii), transactions with affiliates of the Borrower. For purposes hereof, “Common Stock” means (i) the Borrower’s shares of common stock, $0.001 par value per share, and (ii) any capital stock into which such common stock shall have been changed or any share capital resulting from a reclassification of such common stock.
3) Interest. (a) Borrower will pay interest on the unpaid principal amount of all draws from time to time outstanding from the date of each draw until each such draw has been paid in full. Interest shall accrue at the simple interest rate equal to twelve percent (12%) per annum, simple, with respect to each draw.
(b) Borrower will pay interest, calculated at the rate set forth above, upon the Maturity Date or such earlier date upon which any draw is repaid. In addition, Borrower will pay a default rate equal to two percent (2%) per annum in excess of the rate set forth herein if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing. Notwithstanding the foregoing however, in no event shall interest exceed the maximum legal rate permitted by law. All payments, including insufficient payments, shall be credited, regardless of their designation by Borrower, first to outstanding late charges, then to interest and the remainder, if any, to principal.
4) Requests for Loans; Disbursement of Proceeds.
Borrower may borrow, and Lender agrees to fund draws hereunder, upon notice of a proposed borrowing, and the requested amount thereof, to the Lender not later than 12:00 Noon (New York time) five (5) days prior to the date on which the proposed borrowing is requested to be made, subject to the satisfaction of all conditions precedent to such draw, including the delivery to the Lender of a funding memorandum substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (a “Funding Memorandum”); provided, that, the aggregate principal amount of all draws outstanding at any one time shall not exceed $500,000. Lender shall not be obligated to fund draws more than once per month. Each notice of borrowing shall be delivered by hand or facsimile transmission. Each such notice shall be irrevocable by and binding on Borrower. Unless otherwise directed in writing by Borrower, the Lender shall promptly disburse the proceeds of such draw made hereunder by crediting the amount thereof as instructed in the applicable Funding Memorandum.
5) Payments and Prepayments; Use of Grid.
(b) The Lender is hereby authorized by Borrower to enter and record on the schedule attached hereto (i) the loan number, (ii) the date of each draw made under this Grid Note, (iii) the dollar amount of the draw, (iv) the applicable interest rate, (v) interest due on Maturity Date, (vi) each payment and prepayment of any draw thereon, and (vii) date of payment, without any further authorization on the part of Borrower or any endorser or guarantor of this Grid Note; provided, however, that the Lender shall promptly deliver to the Borrower a copy of this Grid Note following the entry of each draw hereunder. The entry of a draw on said schedule shall be prima facie and presumptive evidence of the entered draw and its conditions, absent manifest error. The Lender’s failure to make an entry, however, shall not limit or otherwise affect the obligations of Borrower or any endorser or guarantor of this Grid Note.
(c) Borrower may make prepayments in whole or in part hereunder at any time, provided accrued, but unpaid interest, is paid through the prepayment date.
(d) If any payment of principal or interest becomes due on a day on which the Lender is closed, such payment shall be made not later than the next succeeding Business Day (a “Business Day” shall be considered to be Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm local time, excluding weekends and public holidays) and such extension shall be included in computing interest in connection with such payment. All payments by Borrower on account of principal, interest or fees hereunder shall be made in lawful money of the United States of America, in immediately available funds.
6) Use of Proceeds. The proceeds of each draw hereunder shall be used for general corporate and working capital purposes of Borrower. Borrower may use the proceeds to repay existing indebtedness of the Borrower, including indebtedness to Lender or any of its affiliates. Borrower will not, directly or indirectly, use any proceeds of draws hereunder for the purpose of purchasing or carrying any margin stock within the meaning of Regulation X of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or to extend credit to any person for the purpose of purchasing or carrying any such margin stock, or for any purpose which violates, or is inconsistent with, Regulation X of such Board of Governors.
7) Event of Default. It is expressly agreed that the whole of the indebtedness evidenced by this Grid Note shall immediately become due and payable, at the option of the Lender, on the happening of any default or event constituting an event of default hereunder (each an “Event of Default”). An Event of Default shall occur on: (i) the non-payment of any of the amounts due hereunder within five (5) Business Days after the date such payment is due and payable; (ii) dissolution or liquidation, as applicable, of the Borrower; (iii) any petition in bankruptcy being filed by or against the Borrower or any proceedings in bankruptcy, or under any Acts of Congress relating to the relief of debtors, being commenced for the relief or readjustment of any indebtedness of the Borrower either through reorganization, composition, extension or otherwise; provided, however, that Borrower shall have a sixty (60) day grace period to obtain the dismissal or discharge of involuntary proceedings filed against it, it being understood that during such sixty (60) day grace period, the Lender shall not be obligated to make draws hereunder and the Lender may seek adequate protection in any bankruptcy proceeding; (iv) the making by the Borrower of an assignment for the benefit of creditors, calling a meeting of creditors for the purpose of effecting a composition or readjustment of its debts, or filing a petition seeking to take advance of any other law providing for the relief of debtors; (v) any seizure, vesting or intervention by or under authority of a government, by which the management of the Borrower, is displaced or its authority in the conduct of its business is curtailed; (vi) the appointment of any receiver of any material property of the Borrower; (vii) if any warranty, representation, statement, report or certificate made now or hereafter by Borrower to Lender pursuant hereto is untrue or incorrect in any material respect at the time made or delivered; (viii) the Borrower shall contest, dispute or challenge in any manner, whether in a judicial proceeding or otherwise, the validity or enforceability of any material provision set forth herein or any transaction contemplated in this Grid Note; or (ix) if there shall be a material adverse change in the business plan or prospects of Borrower in the reasonable opinion of Lender.
