Capital Structure-related Events

On April 12, 2021, we received notice that our PPP Loan has been forgiven. We expect that $1.8 million, representing principal and interest earned on the balance in escrow, and net of associated fees, will be released to us from escrow during the quarter ending June 30, 2021.

On April 29, 2021, we entered into a credit facility with Truist Bank that includes a $20.0 million variable interest rate asset-backed lending arrangement and a $1.0 million capital expenditure line with customary terms and conditions.  These arrangements mature on April 29, 2026.

On May 14, 2021, we notified holders of the Public Warrants of our intent to redeem them on June 16, 2021.

Litigation-related Event

On May 14, 2021, a class action complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York by Darryl Keith Rosencrants, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated against Danimer Scientific, Inc., Stephen E. Croskrey, John A. Dowdy, III, John P. Amboian, Richard J. Hendrix, Christy Basco, Philip Gregory Calhoun, Gregory Hunt, Isao Noda, and Stuart W. Pratt (collectively, “Defendants”).

The alleged class consists of all persons and entities other than Defendants that purchased or otherwise acquired Danimer securities between December 30, 2020 and March 19, 2021 (the “Class Period”).  Plaintiff is seeking to recover damages caused by Defendants’ alleged violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

The complaint is premised upon various allegations that throughout the Class Period, Defendants allegedly made materially false and misleading statements regarding, among other things, Danimer’s business, operations, and compliance policies.

Plaintiff seeks the following remedies: (i) determining that the lawsuit may be maintained as a class action under Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, (ii) certifying Plaintiff as the class representative, (iii) requiring Defendants to pay damages allegedly sustained by Plaintiff and the class by reason of the aforesaid acts alleged in the complaint, and (iv) awarding Plaintiff and the other members of the class pre-judgment and post-judgment interest, as well as their reasonable attorneys’ fees, expert fees and other costs.

We are unable to estimate the amount or range of loss, if any, and therefore have not established a loss provision.

The complaint repeats certain allegations, which are already in the public domain.  Defendants deny the allegations contained in the complaint, believe this lawsuit is without any merit and intend to defend it vigorously.
