Engagement of CMN Funding for Bridge Financing
On September 5, 2018 ProGreen engaged CMN Funding (the “Lender”) under the terms of their August 31, 2018 Letter of Interest for a three-year $5,500,000 financing (the “Loan”) secured by a first mortgage lien on our Cielo Mar property in Baja California, Mexico. The engagement does not constitute a commitment from either party to execute a definitive financing agreement. The Company has paid the Lender’s $3,500 Acceptance Fee, of which $2,500 is fully refundable should the Lender be unable or unwilling to deliver the anticipated funding within 60 days. Should this engagement result in a definitive financing agreement, the Lender’s origination fee of 1.75% of all senior debt and 2.50% of any preferred equity is payable upon closing.
The Loan term is specified as three years, and the interest rate on the Loan as between 9% and 11%.
