During the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019, the Company generated approximately $55.7 million of gross proceeds from the sale of its securities as follows:
(i) $20,465,203 from the sale of 4,340,456 common shares in an “at-the-market” offerings,
(ii) $23,663,000 from the sale of its 7.125% unsecured, unsubordinated notes due June 30, 2024 (the “Notes”),
(iii) $ 82,035 from the exercise of 16,407 warrants, and
(iv) $11,500,000 from the sale of 2,300,000 common shares from an equity offering
In total, approximately $31.5 million of the net proceeds from these offerings were used primarily to pay-off the Webster Facility on an ongoing basis until fully paid on June 25, 2019, with the balance used as working capital and for general corporate purposes.
The Notes were sold in an underwritten public offering. The Notes were issued in denomination of $25.00 each and are listed on the NYSE American and trade under the symbol “SCCB”. Interest on the Notes commenced accruing on June 25, 2019. The accrued interest is payable quarterly in cash, in arrears, on March 30, June 30, September 30 and December 30, commencing September 30, 2019. The Notes mature and the entire principal amount is due June 30, 2024. So long as the Notes are outstanding, the Company is prohibited from making distributions in excess of 90% of its taxable income, incurring any additional indebtedness or purchasing any shares of its capital stock unless it has an “Asset Coverage Ratio” of at least 150% after giving effect to the payment of such dividend, the incurrence of such indebtedness or the application of the net proceeds, as the case may be. The Company may redeem the Notes, in whole or in part, without premium or penalty, at any time after June 25, 2021 upon at least 30 days prior written notice to the holders of the Notes. The redemption price will be equal to the outstanding principal amount of the Notes redeemed plus the accrued but unpaid interest thereon up to, but not including, the date of redemption. The Notes are reflected on the Company’s September 30, 2019 balance sheet net of deferred financing costs in the amount of approximately $1.2 million.
