In the event the Debentures have not been converted or redeemed within five years from the date of issue, the Debenture holder may call the Debenture by providing the Company with twelve months’ written notice, after which, the total Principal and accrued Interest will be due and payable by the Company in cash on the date that is 12 months from the Notice Date.
The Debentures are also subject to Interest adjustments if Katipult fails to maintain a cash balance equal to its 12 month burn rate whereby the Interest will increase by 0.5% for each month of inadequate cash balance subject to an interest rate cap of 12%.
