Item 1.01 Entry into Material Definitive Agreement
On July 1, 2019, Chanticleer Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Chanticleer” or the “company”) entered into a dealer-manager agreement (the “DM Agreement”) with Chardan Capital Markets, LLC and The Oak Ridge Financial Services Group Inc. (the “Co-DMs”) relating to the distribution of rights to purchase up to $16 million of shares of the company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Rights Offering”). In connection with the rights offering, Chanticleer agreed to pay to the Co-DMs a cash fee equal to7% of the gross proceeds of the Rights Offering (excluding proceeds from the reduction of debt obligations) and to reimburse the Co-DMs for their expenses up to $75,000. Chanticleer further agreed to indemnify the Co-DMs and their respective affiliates against certain liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Co-DMs participation in this rights offering was subject to customary conditions contained in the DM Agreement. The offering was made pursuant to the Company’s effective registration statement on Form S-1 (Registration Statement No. 333-230857) previously filed with and declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and accompanying prospectus and prospectus supplements filed with the SEC.
The Co-DMs and their affiliates may provide to us from time to time in the future in the ordinary course of their business certain financial advisory, investment banking and other services for which they will be entitled to receive fees. Our exclusive engagement with the Co-DMs expires October 5, 2019.
Pursuant to the Rights Offering, the holders of Chanticleer’s 6% Secured Subordinate Convertible Notes (“Notes”) agreed, on June 28, 2019, to satisfy payment of the holders’ basic and over-subscriptions for 3,000,000 shares of common stock through payoff of the principal amount of $3,000,000 of the Notes. An additional holder of a note dated January 27, 2017 in the amount of $75,000 also participated to full satisfaction of his note, in the same manner.
Item 8.01 Other Information
