Convertible Debenture Financing
Ideanomics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a convertible debenture (the “Note”), dated February 8, 2021 with YA II PN, Ltd. (the “Investor”) with a principal amount of $80,000,000 (the “Principal”). The Note has a fixed conversion price of $4.95 (the “Conversion Price). The Conversion Price is not subject to adjustment except for subdivisions or combinations of common stock. The Principal and the interest payable under the Note will mature on August 8, 2021 (the “Maturity Date), unless earlier converted or redeemed by the Company. At any time before the Maturity Date, the Investor may convert the Note at their option into shares of Company common stock at a fixed conversion price of $4.95. The Company has the right, but not the obligation, to redeem (“Optional Redemption”) a portion or all amounts outstanding under this Note prior to the Maturity Date at a cash redemption price equal to the Principal to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any; provided that the Company provides Investor with at least 15 business days’ prior written notice of its desire to exercise an Optional Redemption and the volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock over the 10 Business Days’ immediately prior to such redemption notice is less than the Conversion Price. The Investor may convert all or any part of the Note after receiving a redemption notice, in which case the redemption amount shall be reduced by the amount so converted. No public market currently exists for the Note, and the Company does not intend to apply to list the Note on any securities exchange or for quotation on any inter-dealer quotation system. The Note contains customary events of default, indemnification obligations of the Company and other obligations and rights of the parties.
The Note was offered pursuant to the Company’s effective registration statement on Form S-3ASR (Registration Statement No. 333-252230) previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and a prospectus supplement thereunder (the “Registration Statement”).
