On May 10, 2012, the Executive Chairman and Principal Executive Officer, Mr. Shane McMahon, made a loan to the Company in the amount of $3,000,000. In consideration for the loan, the Company issued a convertible note to Mr. McMahon in the aggregate principal amount of $3,000,000 (the “Note”) at a 4% interest rate computed on the basis of a 365 day year. Upon issuance, the conversion price of the Note was equal to the price per share paid for securities by investors in the most recent financing (as of the date of conversion) of equity or equity-linked securities of the Company.

As such, we recognized a beneficial conversion feature of approximately $2,126,000 in 2014 which was reflected as interest expense and additional paid-in capital since the note was payable upon demand.
Effective December 30, 2014, the Company and Mr. McMahon entered into Amendment No. 5 pursuant to which the maturity date of the Note was extended to December 31, 2016.
