Note 12: Production Loan Facility


On August 8, 2016, Llama Productions LLC (“Llama”) closed a $5,275,000 multiple draw-down, secured, non-recourse, non-revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) with Bank Leumi USA (the “Lender”) to produce its animated series Llama Llama, (the “Series”) which is configured as fifteen half-hour episodes comprised of thirty 11-minute programs that were delivered to Netflix in fall 2017. As a condition of the loan agreement with Bank Leumi, the Company deposited $1,000,000 into a cash account to be used solely to produce the Series.


On September 28, 2018, Llama entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan and Security Agreement”) with the Lender, pursuant to which the Lender agreed to make a secured loan in an aggregate amount not to exceed $4,231,989 to Llama (the “Loan”). The proceeds of the Loan were used to pay the majority of the expenses of producing, completing and delivering two 22-minute episodes and nineteen 11- minute episodes of the second season of the animated series Llama Llama to be initially exhibited on Netflix. To secure payment of the Loan, Llama has granted to the Lender a continuing security interest in and against, generally, all of its tangible and intangible assets, which includes all seasons of the Llama Llama animated series.


Under the Loan and Security Agreement, Llama could request revolving loan advances under (a) the Prime Rate Loan facility and (b) the LIBOR Loan facility, each as further described in the Loan and Security Agreement. The Maturity Date of the Prime Rate Loan facility and LIBOR Loan facility was June 30, 2021.


In addition, on September 28, 2018, Llama and the Lender entered into Amendment No. 2 to the Loan and Security Agreement, effective as of August 27, 2018, by and between Llama and the Lender (the “Amendment”). Pursuant to the Amendment, the original Loan and Security Agreement, dated as of August 8, 2016 and amended as of November 7, 2017 (the “Original Loan and Security Agreement”), was amended to (i) reduce the loan commitment thereunder to $1,768,010, and (ii) include the Llama Llama season two obligations under the Loan and Security Agreement as obligations under the Original Loan and Security Agreement.


As of December 31, 2020, the Company had gross outstanding borrowings under the facility of $1,099,713. The outstanding balance of $274,365 was repaid on July 14, 2021.
