As part of the MPX Acquisition, the Company acquired a related party receivable of $0.7 million due from a company owned by a former director and officer of the Company, Elizabeth Stavola. The related party receivable was converted into a loan facility of up to $10.0 million, which accrues interest at the rate of 16.0%, compounded annually. Interest is due upon maturity of the loan on December 31, 2021. The balance of such facility was $4.6 million as of December 31, 2021 (December 31, 2020

The related party balances are presented in the other long-term assets line on the consolidated balance sheets. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company exercised its right to convert the principal balance of the loan and accrued interest into a 99% equity interest in MPX NJ, which conversion is subject to certain regulatory approvals. On January 7, 2022, the CRC approved the Company’s acquisition of the equity interests in MPX NJ

As part of Ford’s termination agreement, the total loan facility was offset by compensation owed to Ford of $0.5 million during the first quarter of 2021. As of December 31, 2021, the outstanding balance of the facility including accrued interest was $Nil (December 31, 2020

bearing and was due on March 31, 2020. In February 2020, the Board formed a Special Committee to conduct an investigation related to the loan.

On April 27, 2020, the Board accepted Ford’s resignation as a director and officer of the Company and its subsidiaries.
