Item 1.01        Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 23, 2018, LM Funding America, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into amendments and restatements of the following investment agreements that it originally entered into on April 2, 2019 with a New York-based family office (“Investor”):  (i) the Securities Purchase Agreement, dated April 2, 2018, between the Company and Investor (the “SPA”), (ii) the Senior Convertible Promissory Note in the original principal amount of $500,000 executed by the Company in favor of Investor (the “Note”), (iii) a Warrant to Purchase Common Stock, dated April 2, 2018, issued by the Company to Investor (the “Warrant”), (iv) a Registration Rights Agreement, dated April 2, 2018, between the Company and Investor (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), and (v) a Common Stock Purchase Agreement, dated April 2, 2018, between the Company and Investor (“Purchase Agreement”).  The foregoing agreements are described in the Company’s Form 8-K/A filed on May 21, 2018.  

The following is a summary of the material amendments made to the foregoing agreements:


The Note was amended to remove the conversion provisions therein, and the SPA was amended to reflect that the Note is no longer convertible by the Investor.


The Purchase Agreement was amended to provide that the $200,000 commitment fee thereunder (the “Commitment Fee”) will be payable in cash instead of shares, and it will be due on the earlier of October 2, 2018 or the date of the first sale of shares by the Company under the Purchase Agreement.


The Registration Rights Agreement was amended to remove the shares underlying the Warrant as registrable securities thereunder and to reflect that no shares will be issuable pursuant to the Note or Commitment Fee, and the filing deadline and effectiveness deadline for the registration statement thereunder was changed to August 13 and September 13, respectively.    


As a result of foregoing amendment to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Warrant was amended to provide for the right of the Investor to exercise the Warrant on a cashless basis at all times.

The foregoing is a summary description of the amendments to the SPA, Note, Warrant, Purchase Agreement, and Registration Rights Agreement and, by its nature, is incomplete. Such summary is qualified in its entirety by the full text of such agreements (as amended and restated), copies of which are filed herewith and are incorporated herein by reference.


This Current Report on Form 8-K contains “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including statements related to the potential future sale of shares of the Company’s common stock and price for such sales under the Purchase Agreement. The words “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “project,” “potential,” “continue,” “ongoing” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. While the Company believes its plans, intentions and expectations reflected in those forward-looking statements are reasonable, these plans, intentions or expectations may not be achieved.
