On April 21, 2023, Arcturus Therapeutics, Inc. (“Borrower”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Arcturus Therapeutics Holdings Inc.

Borrowings under the Credit Agreement will bear interest at a rate of 1.00% above either the Daily Simple SOFR or Term SOFR (as such terms are defined in the Note), with “SOFR” being the rate per annum equal to the secured overnight financing rate as administered by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. All Loans shall bear interest during an Event of Default (as defined in the Credit Agreement) at a rate equal to 2.00% above the interest rate applicable immediately prior to the occurrence of the Event of Default (as defined in the Credit Agreement).


The term of the Credit Agreement is two years, with an option for one-year renewals subject to Wells Fargo approval and Arcturus furnishing to Wells Fargo a non-refundable commitment fee equal to 0.25% of the Loan amount for each such renewal. There is no penalty for terminating the Credit Agreement. There is no penalty for terminating the facility prior to the maturity date of the Note. As collateral, Borrower has agreed to pledge $55 million in cash to be held at Arcturus’ securities accounts with Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, an affiliate of Wells Fargo, pursuant to a security agreement.


The foregoing descriptions of the Credit Agreement, Note, and security agreement are not complete descriptions of all terms and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Credit Agreement, Note and security agreement, respectively, that will be filed as exhibits to a subsequent filing on a periodic report.
