Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.


On June 8, 2023, the Company and certain of its affiliates executed a forbearance agreement with our senior secured lender, St. Cloud Capital Partners III SBIC, LP (“St. Cloud,” and such agreement the “Forbearance Agreement”) whereby St. Cloud has agreed to forbear from exercising any rights and remedies under its senior secured debt facilities or under applicable law with respect to any existing defaults thereunder or any failure to comply with certain financial covenants for a specified period of time.  The Forbearance Agreement is effective for 60 days provided the Company continues to comply with its terms.


The Forbearance Agreement provides the Company time to continue ongoing discussions with potential capital providers and to explore potential other options for funding our short-term and long-term capital needs.  These efforts may result in potential debt or equity financing and/or assets sales to fund our obligations. 


In exchange for St. Cloud’s agreement to forbear from exercising any of its rights or remedies, the Company has agreed to pay to St. Cloud a forbearance fee in the amount of $500,000 and to pay all reasonable fees and expenses incurred by St. Cloud, including fees for counsel, in each case upon the closing of a transaction that would result in the obligations of the Company to St. Cloud being satisfied in full on or prior to the Forbearance Termination Date. or otherwise upon termination of the Forbearance Agreement.  Additionally, by entering into the Forbearance Agreement, the Company has released St. Cloud and certain of its related parties from all claims and causes of action the Company may have against St. Cloud prior to the effective date of the Forbearance Agreement.


The Forbearance Agreement includes certain milestones the Company must satisfy, and it further provides that in the event the Company is unable to satisfy its obligations to St. Cloud during the forbearance period, the Company will cooperate with St. Cloud in the exercise of St. Cloud’s rights and remedies.


The full text of the Forbearance Agreement is set forth in Exhibit 99.1 which is incorporated herein by reference.
