INFORMATION TO BE INCLUDED IN THE REPORT
Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On December 10, 2018, Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc. (the “Company”) loaned $350,000 to Black Ridge Acquisition Corp. ("BRAC"), an affiliate of the Company, and was issued a convertible promissory note to evidence such loan (the "Note"). The loan is unsecured, non-interest bearing and is payable at the consummation by BRAC of a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, or other similar business combination, with one or more businesses or entities (a “Business Combination”). Upon consummation of a Business Combination, the principal balance of the note may be converted, at the Company's option, to units at a price of $10.00 per unit. The terms of the units will be identical to the units issued by BRAC in its initial public offering, except the warrants included in such units will be non-redeemable and may be exercised on a cashless basis, in each case so long as they continue to be held by the Company or its permitted transferees. If the Company converts the entire principal balance of the convertible promissory note, it would receive 35,000 units. If a Business Combination is not consummated, the note will not be repaid by BRAC and all amounts owed thereunder by BRAC will be forgiven except to the extent that BRAC has funds available to it outside of its trust account established in connection with the initial public offering.
This summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms of the Note which will be filed as exhibits to the Company's Form 10-K for the period in which the Note was issued.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
