Trakopolis Announces Expiry of Amendment Agreement with Lender and Potential Covenant Non-Compliance
CALGARY, Alberta, Oct. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trakopolis IoT Corp. (TSXV: TRAK) (“Trakopolis” or the “Company“) today announces that, further to its press release dated August 2, 2019 (the “Prior Release“), the amending agreement (the “Amending Agreement“) entered into between the Company and its lender, ESW Holdings, Inc. (the “Lender“) has expired, rendering the amendments set forth in the Amending Agreement ineffective.
As a result of the expiry of the Amending Agreement, the Company believes that it is in non-compliance with two of the covenants in its amended and restated loan agreement with the Lender dated November 27, 2018, as amended on March 15, 2019 (the “Loan Agreement“) relating to liquidity and the annual value of customer contracts. Failure to comply with the covenants in the Loan Agreement would result in an event of default pursuant to the Loan Agreement which could result in an acceleration of repayment of the indebtedness advanced thereunder which could impede Trakopolis’ ability to operate as a going concern and may require Trakopolis to seek creditor protection. As noted in the Prior Release, Trakopolis has undertaken a strategic process which involves the identification of capital market alternatives available to it including financing transactions and potential strategic combinations. The strategic review is ongoing and is being conducted by a Special Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company with the assistance of external legal and financial advisors. Trakopolis does not intend to comment further regarding the strategic review process unless a specific transaction or other alternative is approved by the Board of Directors of the Company.About TrakopolisTrakopolis is a Software as a Service (SaaS) company with proprietary, cloud-based solutions for real-time tracking, data analysis and management of corporate assets such as equipment, devices, vehicles and workers.
