Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On April 7, 2023, Digital Brands Group, Inc. (the “Company”) and various purchasers (the “Investors”) executed a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”) whereby the Investors purchased from the Company 20% Original Issue Discount (the “OID”) promissory notes (the “Notes”) in the aggregate principal amount of $2,208,750 (with an aggregate subscription amount of $1,800,000).


The Form of Note


The Notes are due and payable on September 30, 2023 (the “Maturity Date”). The Company will also have the option to prepay the Notes with no penalties at any time prior to the Maturity Date. If the Company or any subsidiary of the Company completes a debt or equity financing of less than $7,500,000, the Company is required to repay 50% of the remaining balance of the Notes. Following such 50% repayment, the Company must also use any proceeds from any subsequent debt or equity financing to repay the Notes. Upon the closing of any debt or equity financing of $7,500,000 or greater, the Company is required to repay 100% of the Notes with no penalties.


If the Notes are not repaid in full by the Maturity Date or if any other event of default occurs, (1) the face value of the Notes will be automatically increased to 120%; (2) the Notes will begin generating an annual interest rate of 20%, which will be paid in cash monthly until the default is cured; and (3) if such default continues for 14 or more calendar days, at the Investors’ discretion, the Notes shall become convertible at the option of the Investors into shares of the Company’s Common Stock (“Conversion Shares”) at a conversion price (the “Conversion Price”) equal to the Nasdaq closing price of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), on the Nasdaq Capital Market (as reflected on Nasdaq.com) on the date of the note conversion (the “Default Conversion Election”).


If the Investors elect such Default Conversion Election, (1) the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to submit to its stockholders as soon as practicable in order to obtain as soon as practicable stockholder approval for the Company to issue the number of Conversion Shares necessary to complete such conversion (inclusive of the OID) at the Conversion Price in accordance with Nasdaq Rule 5635(a)(1) and/or 5635(d) (as applicable, the “20% Rule”), Delaware corporate law and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended; (2) if such stockholder approval is obtained, such conversion shall be effected within one business day of such approval at the Conversion Price; (3) to the extent that, prior to obtaining such stockholder approval, the Company may then issue Conversion Shares at the Conversion Price without violating the 20% Rule (the “Maximum Amount”), the Company shall issue to the Investor the Maximum Amount of Conversion Shares at the Conversion Price; and (4) if such stockholder approval is not obtained within 14 calendar days of the conversion date, then the Company shall cause (i) all members of its management team to pledge their shares of common stock to the Investor to secure the repayment of amounts due under the Note, and (ii) the Chief Executive Officer to personally guarantee the repayment of all amounts due thereunder.


Copies of the SPA and the form of Note are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing descriptions of the SPA and the Notes do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the applicable exhibit.


Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.


Item 1.01 is incorporated by reference herein. As described in Item 1.01, under the terms of the SPA, the Company issued to the Investors the Notes– which issuances are exempt from registration pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
