Partial Equity Conversion of a Loan from Comstock Growth Fund, L.C. to Comstock Holding Companies, Inc.
On October 17, 2014, Comstock Holding Companies, Inc. (the Company) entered into a promissory note with Comstock Growth Fund, L.C. (CGF), which was amended and restated on December 18, 2014, whereby CGF made a loan to the Company with a maximum amount available for borrowing of up to $25 million with an original three-year term with an interest rate of ten percent (10%) (the A&R CGF Note). The A&R CGF Note was amended on April 16, 2018 to extend the term for up to two years (the Second A&R CGF Note). The outstanding principal balance of the Second A&R CGF Note is $13,101,750.
On May 22, 2018, the Company and members of CGF entered into the Second Amended and Restated Operating Agreement and an amendment to the same (as amended, the Second OA), to modify certain terms and provisions governing CGF, including the creation of Class A members and Class B members. Pursuant to the Second OA, Comstock Development Services, LC (CDS), an entity wholly-owned by Christopher Clemente, the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, elected to (i) receive 300,024 shares of the Companys Class A Common Stock, in lieu of receiving annual interest payments due under the Second A&R CGF Note (ii) convert its capital account balance in CGF to a preferred equity position as a Class B member, (ii) reduce the principal balance of the Second A&R CGF Note by $8,100,000 to $5,001,750.00, and (iv) grant Class A members a priority cash distribution of payments received by CGF from the Company
Concurrent with the entry into the Second OA, the Company amended and restated the Second A&R CGF Note (the Third A&R CGF Note) to reduce the principal balance of the note to $5,001,750.00, as described above, with payments of interest only at an interest rate of ten percent (10%), consistent with its original terms. The Company was also granted an option to extend the maturity date of the Third A&R CGF Note to April 16, 2020 upon payment by the Company to CGF of an extension fee equal to one half of one percent of the then outstanding balance of the Third A&R CGF Note.
On May 23, 2018, the Company entered into a Membership Interest Exchange and Subscription Agreement with CDS and CGF (the Share Exchange Agreement) pursuant to which CDS exchanged 98.765% of the newly created Class B membership interests in CGF, valued at $8,000,000 (the CGF Class B Interest) for 1,600,000 shares of the Companys Series C Non-Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share and a stated value of $5.00 per share (the Series C Preferred Stock). The CGF Class B Interest acquired by the Company as part of the Share Exchange Agreement was retired as part of the transaction.
