The Company maintains another mortgage with Bank of New England for the 2016 purchase of a 45,070 square foot building in Wilmington, Delaware which was developed into a cannabis seed-to-sale facility and is currently leased to the Company’s cannabis-licensed client in the state. The mortgage matures in 2031 with monthly principal and interest payments at a rate of 5.25% through September 2021, and thereafter the rate adjusting every five years to the then prime rate plus 1.5% with a floor of 5.25%.

On May 5th of each year, this mortgage is due to be repaid unless it is renewed for another year at a rate determined at the discretion of DSB’s executive committee. The Company has been notified by DSB that the mortgage will be renewed in May 2019. At March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the principal balance on this mortgage was approximately $845,000 and $850,000, respectively, of which approximately $23,000 was current at the end of both periods.
In March 2019, the Company raised $6 million from the issuance of a secured promissory note maturing in December 2019 and bearing interest at the rate of 13% per annum, with interest payable monthly. The Company may elect to prepay the note in whole or part without penalty upon three business days’ notice and with payment of all interest through the maturity date.
