Item 1.01.
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Amended and Restated Subscription Agreement

On January 6, 2019, Better Choice Company Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into the First Amendment to the Subscription Agreement (the “Amended Agreement”), an amended and restated subordinated convertible note (the “Amended Notes”) and the First Amendment to the Registration Rights Agreement (the “Amended Registration Rights Agreement”) with two accredited investors (the “Purchasers”) who participated in the private placement consummated on November 11, 2019. Pursuant to Section 7(c) of the Subordinated Convertible Promissory Note (the “Notes”) issued on November 11, 2019, the Purchasers have the right to amend and restate the Note and related documents to incorporate the preferable terms of any convertible promissory notes issued after November 11, 2019 so long as the Note is outstanding. As disclosed in the Company’s 8-K issued on December 26, 2019, the Company issued convertible subordinated notes to HH-Halo LP, a Delaware limited partnership, Thriving Paws, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and Werner von Pein (collectively, the “Sellers”). The Amended Agreement was entered into in order to incorporate only the preferable terms of the convertible subordinates notes issued to the Sellers and all other terms and provisions of the Note shall remain in full force and effect.

Amended Terms of the Notes

Pursuant to the Amended Notes, the interest shall be payable by increasing the aggregate principal amount of the Notes (such increase being referred to therein as “PIK Interest”). As amended, for so long as any Event of Default (as defined in the Note) exists, interest shall accrue on the Note principal at the default interest rate of 12.0% per annum, and such accrued interest shall be immediately due and payable. As amended, the provisions of the Note that provided for an additional number of shares of Common Stock to the Investor if the IPO (as defined in the Note) had not been completed by June 30, 2020 have been removed.

Amended Terms of the Registration Rights Agreement

The provisions of the Registration Rights Agreement remain in effect except that the Filing Deadline (as defined therein) has been amended to March 31, 2020.

The foregoing descriptions of the Amended Agreement, the Amended Notes and the Amended Registration Rights Agreement do not purport to be complete, and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Amended Agreement, Amended Notes and Amended Registration Rights Agreement, filed as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2 and 10.1 respectively and incorporated herein by reference.
