Update on Notices of Default under Heartland Bank Credit Facility
In our Current Report on Form 8-K dated July 9, 2015 (and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 15, 2015), we reported the notice of default received with respect to each of our Credit Agreement and our Account Purchase Agreement dated August 2014 with Heartland Bank, as administrative agent (Agent) for the other lenders under each of the Credit Agreement and Account Purchase Agreement (the Lenders). As of the date of this Report, the Agent has not declared the $9.2 million outstanding term loan balance under the Credit Agreement or the $2.1 million outstanding balance under the Account Purchase Agreement to be immediately due and payable, nor has the Agent exercised any rights or remedies under the Uniform Commercial Code. However, as stated in our Current Report dated July 9, 2015, the Agent contends that, as a result of the alleged default, the Agents obligation to advance funds, if any, under the Purchase Agreement, is suspended and no additional funds have been advanced under the Purchase Agreement since the notice of default was received. In addition, on July 21, 2015, we received notice that the Agent applied the $1.09 million previously held in reserve under the Account Purchase Agreement towards our repurchase of receivables previously purchased by Heartland under the Account Purchase Agreement, thereby leaving the aforementioned $2.1 million outstanding balance under the Account Purchase Agreement as of the date of this Report
The consequences of the notices of default continue to have material negative effects on our ability to operate and manage the affairs of the company, including our inability to pay our employees causing a severe reduction in personnel. As of the date of this Report, we only have eight employees, including our Chief Executive Officer and the President of our AES Water Solutions subsidiary. In addition, we have started returning vehicles under our lease with Enterprise and equipment under lease pursuant to our Master Lease Agreements with each of BCL Equipment Leasing LLC (see below) and Nations Fund I. As a result, our operations for our Water Transfer Division are currently extremely limited, and we have suspended operations for our Power and Safety divisions. We are continuing discussions with Heartland Bank and other parties for a resolution of these matters, including restructuring, and to secure working capital to enable us to re-engage additional operations as soon as reasonably possible.
Default under Mater Lease with BCL Equipment Leasing LLC
On July 24, 2015, we received a notice of default under our Master Lease Agreement with BCL Equipment Leasing LLC. Under such notice of default, BCL demanded return of all equipment under such lease (which equipment return was already in process) and payment of liquidated damages under such lease. Liquidated damages includes any tax benefits associated with lessors ownership of the equipment plus the present value of all remaining rental payments due under the lease, using a discount rate of 2% plus the fair market value of the property at time of default with a minimum of 20% capitalized value. The remaining rental payments due under the lease approximate $1.8 million (before applying the 2% discount).
