Oberland Facility
On June 30, 2020, the Company entered into a seven-year financing agreement with Oberland Capital (the “Oberland Facility”) and obtained the first tranche of $35,000 at closing. The Oberland Facility provides for a total of $75,000 through two additional tranches that can be drawn by December 31, 2021 and requires interest-only payments for the duration of the term.  A second tranche of $15,000 may be drawn at the Company’s option upon achieving two consecutive quarters with revenue of at least $20,000. Such second tranche may also be put to the Company at any time by Oberland Capital. A third tranche of $25,000 may be drawn at the Company’s option upon achieving two consecutive quarters with revenue of $28,000.  The financing costs for this facility are approximately $642 and were recorded as a contra liability to the debt facility. As of March 31, 2021, the Company has paid all of the financing costs.
The Oberland Facility requires quarterly interest payments for seven years. Interest is calculated as 7.5% plus the greater of LIBOR or 2.0% (9.5% as of March 31, 2021). Each tranche of the Oberland Facility, if and when issued, will have a term of seven years from the date of issuance (with the first tranche issued on June 30, 2020 maturing on June 30, 2027).  In connection with the Oberland Facility, the Company entered into a revenue participation agreement with Oberland Capital, which provides that, among other things, an additional quarterly royalty payment as a percentage of the Company’s net revenues, up to $70 million in any given fiscal year, subject to certain limitations set forth therein, during the period commencing on the later of (i) April 1, 2021 and (ii) the date of funding of a tranche of the loan, and ending on the date upon which all amounts owed under the Oberland Facility have been paid in full (the “Revenue Participation Agreement”).  Payments will commence on September 30, 2021.  This royalty structure results in approximately 1.0% per year of additional interest payments on the outstanding loan amount.  On March 31, 2021, the Company paid the quarterly debt interest of $831 to Oberland Capital for this facility.  The Company capitalized approximately $520 of the interest towards the costs to construct and retrofit its Axogen Processing Center in Vandalia, OH (See Note 13 - Commitments and Contingencies). The capitalized interest is recorded as part of property and equipment in the condensed consolidated balance sheet.
Additionally, Oberland Capital had the right to purchase up to $3,500 worth of the Company's common stock from the Company in one transaction at any time after closing of the Oberland Facility until the later of (i) the date all amounts due under the Oberland Facility are repaid and (ii) June 30, 2027 (the “Oberland Option”). The purchase price of the common stock will be calculated based on the 45-day moving average of the closing stock price on the day prior to the purchase. On December 10, 2020, Oberland Capital exercised in full its option under the Option Agreement. The exercise price was determined to be $14.13, resulting in gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $3,500 and the issuance of 247,699 shares to TPC Investments II LP, a wholly owned subsidiary of Oberland Capital. In conjunction with the issuance, Oberland Capital received
certain protective rights (including protection from down-round stock issuances) for a period of one year subsequent to the issuance.
The amounts outstanding under the Oberland Facility may be accelerated upon certain events, including: (a) required mandatory prepayments upon an asset sale; (b) in the event the Company is subject to (i) any litigation brought by a Governmental Authority (as defined in the Oberland Facility) including intervention after litigation is commenced by a Person (as defined in the Oberland Facility ), or (ii) any final administrative action by a Governmental Authority, in each case arising out of or in connection with any of the Company’s registry studies, payments made to doctors or training activities with respect to healthcare professionals (excluding certain final administrative action that have been fully and finally resolved by the parties pursuant to a settlement agreement) or (c) upon the occurrence of an event of default (either automatically or at the option of Oberland Capital depending on the nature of the event). In addition, the Company has the right to prepay any amounts outstanding under the Oberland Facility. Upon maturity or upon such earlier repayment of the Oberland Facility, the Company will repay the principal balance and provide a make-whole payment calculated to generate an internal rate of return to Oberland Capital of at least 11.5%, less the total of all quarterly interest and royalty payments previously paid to Oberland Capital.
Upon the occurrence of an event of default, the interest rate incurred on amounts outstanding under the Oberland Facility will be increased by 4%. The Oberland Facility includes a financial covenant requiring the Company to achieve revenue targets of $8,750 for the third and four quarters of 2020, $17,500 for the first and second quarter of 2021 and $20,000 for each quarter thereafter. In the event of a failure to meet such covenant the Company may avoid a default by electing to be subject to a liquidity covenant and meeting all of the obligations required by such covenant. Specifically, the liquidity covenant provides that the Company must maintain on deposit in a cash collateral account an amount not less than 1.1 times the aggregate outstanding principal balance of all outstanding loan amounts. The borrowings under the Oberland Facility are secured by substantially all of the assets of the Company. As of March 31, 2021, the Company was in compliance with all covenants.
Accounting Considerations
The Company assessed the accounting impact of the Oberland Facility and the related agreements entered into with Oberland Capital. The Company concluded that the Oberland Facility and the Revenue Participation Agreement should be assessed on a combined unit of account basis (with the Revenue Participation Agreement being considered as an embedded feature with the Oberland Facility), and that the Oberland Option should be considered as a separate freestanding instrument for analysis purposes.
In relation to the Oberland Facility and Revenue Participation Agreement, the Company assessed the identified embedded features to determine if they would require separate accounting. In performing this assessment, the Company concluded the following embedded features met the definition of a derivative and would not be considered clearly and closely related to the debt instrument, requiring separate accounting as bifurcated derivatives:
Mandatory prepayments upon an asset sale or litigation involving the government, including the make-whole payment (put rights)
Optional or automatic prepayment upon an event of default (put rights)
Payments under the Revenue Participation Agreement (contingent interest feature)
Additional interest upon events of default (contingent interest feature)
The Company considered these separable embedded features on a combined basis as a single derivative feature. The Company estimated the fair value of these features as $2,387 as of the date of issuance of the Oberland Facility and recorded this value as a deduction to the carrying value of the Oberland Facility.
Other credit facilities
The Company maintains restricted cash of $6,333 and $6,842 at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. In both years, the balance includes $6,000, which represents collateral for an irrevocable standby letter of credit. In March 2021, the Company entered in an agreement which required an additional irrevocable standby letter of credit in the amount of $250. The remaining activity in the account relates to the Heights Union Escrow Account (see Note 13 - Commitments and Contingencies).
