8. FACTORING LIABILITY
During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company entered into a purchase and sale agreement with Prestige Capital Finance, LLC (“Prestige”). Under the agreement, Prestige buys all of the Company’s right, title, and interest in specific accounts receivable. Prestige has full recourse against the Company for advances if payments are not received for any reason. All credit risk is borne by the Company and not by Prestige. Prestige pays a down payment to the Company of 80% of the face value of the specified receivables. The maximum outstanding balance of the advance is $2,000,000. Prestige’s final purchase price of the accounts receivable is at a discount which is deducted from the face value of each account upon collection. The discount fee is based upon the number of days the account receivable is outstanding from the date of the down payment. The discount fee ranges from 1.95% if the receivable is paid within 30 days to 5.85% if paid within 90 days, plus an additional 1.5% for each 10-day period thereafter until the account is paid in full.
The outstanding balance is secured by an interest in virtually all assets of the Company, with a first security interest in accounts receivable. The agreement remains in effect through January10, 2023 and will be automatically renewed for successive periods of one year each unless either party terminates the agreement in writing at least 60 days prior to the expiration of the initial term or any renewal term. Prestige may cancel the agreement at any time upon 60 days’ notice.
The Company accounts for this agreement as a financing arrangement, with the down payments recorded as debt and repayment made when the applicable receivable is collected. As of March 31, 2022, there was an outstanding balance of $1,960,604 and accrued interest of $56,883.
