Bank loan

AIA has an unsecured four-year loan of $15.9 million from UniCredit Bank AG, Munich, Germany. The loan is subject to initial repayment of $0.7 million and thereafter regular half-yearly repayments of $2.2 million, no prepayment penalties and variable interest based on the six-month Euribor plus 2.35%. In order to avoid any exposure to the risk from rising interest rates associated with variable interest obligations, a portion of the variable interest payments was converted into fixed interest obligations by means of interest rate swaps over the term of the loan.

Under the terms of the loan agreement, mandatory special loan payments are agreed under certain conditions. The provision regarding mandatory special loan payments resulted in a mandatory special loan payment of $1.4 million on June 30, 2013. As a result, the repayment period and thus the loan will now end six months earlier than originally envisioned. These special loan payments result in a reclassification of the amount of the special loan payments to the current portion of the loan.

As of June 30, 2013, the principle and accrued interest outstanding on the bank loan was $5.2 million.

Subordinated bank loan

The Company's controlled subsidiary, AIA holds a note payable of $2.6 million for mezzanine financing obtained through a financing program of Capital Efficiency Group AG, Zug, Switzerland.

As of June 30, 2013, the principle and accrued interest outstanding on the note was $2.6 million.

Annuity loan

AIA is a party to a loan agreement for $1.1 million with HVB Investitionsbank GmbH, Munich, to finance investments in hardware for the technical services of The Lab.Aero, one of its subsidiaries. As of June 30, 2013, the remaining balance of the loan agreement was $0.1 million.
