Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) is set to receive $110 million in funding this year.
The company expects to operate business over the next 12 months upon the receipts of this funding.
MULN stock rose more than 5% on Monday.
The bullish news has investors excited to see shares rise again from this year’s low.
Mullen has agreed to issue Series D preferred stock and warrants to Esousa Holdings, Acuitas Capital, Davis-Rice Pty Limited and Ault Lending.
The warrants will “equal 110% of the shares of Series D Preferred Stock purchased,” while the Series D preferred stock can be converted into common stock.
In exchange, Mullen will receive the remaining commitment amount of $90 million, which will be paid out in two equal tranches on April 17 and May 15.
Mullen Automotive has also agreed to not enact a reverse stock split during the five days prior to each date.
Mullen to Receive an Additional $20 Million
The company’s Form 8-K also revealed that Mullen has entered into three promissory notes worth $20 million on April 3.
The notes have an annual interest rate of 15% and will increase to 20% if the interest is not paid on time.
In addition, the notes “enumerate events of default, which include, but are not limited to, failure to pay principal and interest, breach of a covenant included in the Securities Purchase Agreement, bankruptcy and delisting of the Company’s common stock.”
In March, the company noted that it expected to receive $110 million in funding by June 1.
When the company announced it would be delivering EVs to Randy Marion Automotive, it also disclosed that it had cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents of $87.4 million as of Feb. 28.
With the cash balance and expected funding, Mullen believes that it will be able to operate its business plan over the next 12 months.
