Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On December 14, 2020, Ammo, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Debt Conversion Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Forest Street, LLC, an Arizona limited liability company (“Forest Street”), wholly owned by Fred Wagenhals, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. Pursuant to a previously disclosed September 23, 2020 promissory note (the “Note”), the Company had owed the principal sum of Three Million Five Hundred Thousand & 00/100 Dollars ($3,500,000.00) to Forest Street with such principal accruing interest at 12% per annum. The Note has a maturity date of September 23, 2022 (“Maturity Date”).
Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company and Forest Street agreed to convert Two Million One Hundred Thousand & 00/100 Dollars ($2,100,000.00) of the Note’s principal into one million (1,000,000) shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Share Issuance”). The Share Issuance occurred on December 15, 2020. As a result of the Agreement, the principal of the Note is now One Million Four Hundred Thousand & 00/100 Dollars ($1,400,000.00) and the Maturity Date remains the same.
The foregoing description of the Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
The disclosures set forth in Item 1.01 are incorporated into this Item 3.02 by reference.
The Share Issuance was not registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), but qualified for exemption under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act. The securities were exempt from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act because the issuance of such securities by the Company did not involve a “public offering,” as defined in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act, due to the insubstantial number of persons involved in the transaction, size of the offering, manner of the offering and number of securities offered. The Company did not undertake an offering in which it sold a high number of securities to a high number of investors. In addition, Forest Street had the necessary investment intent as required by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act since Forest Street agreed to, and received, the securities bearing a legend stating that such securities are restricted pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act. This restriction ensures that these securities would not be immediately redistributed into the market and therefore not be part of a “public offering.” Based on an analysis of the above factors, the Company has met the requirements to qualify for exemption under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.
Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
Effective December 17, 2020, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company appointed Jessica M. Lockett as a member of the Board. The Board determined that Ms. Lockett qualifies as independent under the director independence standards set forth in the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and applicable NASDAQ listing standards.
There is no arrangement or understanding between Ms. Lockett and any other persons pursuant to which Ms. Lockett was selected as a director, and there are no related party transactions involving Ms. Lockett that are reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K. Ms. Lockett will receive a director fee of $4,000 per month.
Ms. Lockett was appointed to serve as Chair of the Board’s Audit Committee. The Board determined Ms. Lockett qualifies as a “financially sophisticated audit committee member” as defined in the NASDAQ listing standards. In connection with Ms. Lockett’s appointment, Robert J. Goodmanson resigned from his position on the Audit Committee to enable him to take on a role with regard to the Company’s operations. Mr. Goodmanson remains a member of the Board.
Below is a description of Ms. Lockett’s professional work experience.

FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the undersigned, ENLIGHT GROUP II, a Delaware limited liability company whose principal address is 7681 East Gray Road, Scottsdale, Arizona (“EGII”), and AMMO, INC., a Delaware corporation whose principal address is 7681 East Gray Road, Scottsdale, Arizona 85260 (“AMMO”) (EGII and AMMO are individually and together referred to herein as “Borrower”, as the context shall permit or allow), hereby promises to pay to the order of Forest Street, LLC, an Arizona limited liability company, whose principal address is 7681 E. Gray Road, Scottsdale, Arizona 85260 (“Lender”), the principal sum of Three Million Five Hundred & 00/100 Dollars ($3,500,000.00), plus interest thereon as set forth below, on or prior to the Maturity Date (as defined in Section 1) to the account of Lender for operational deployment consistent with the Use of Proceeds, in accordance with the terms and definitions set forth below.
1. Definitions. As used in this Promissory Note (“Note”), the following terms shall have the following meanings:
“Bankruptcy Default” means any Event of Default described in Sections 7.1(d), 7.1(e) or 7.1(f).
“Business Day” means any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or other day on which banks in Scottsdale, Arizona are required to close.
“Closing Date” shall mean September 23, 2020.
“Default” means any act, event, condition or omission which, with the giving of notice or lapse of time, would constitute an Event of Default if uncured or unremedied.
“Dollars” means the lawful currency of the United States.
“Event of Default” means the occurrence of any of the events described in Section 6.1 of this Note.
“Governmental Authority” means any foreign, federal, state, municipal or other government, or any department, commission, board, bureau, agency, public authority or instrumentality thereof or any court or arbitrator.
“Use of Proceeds” means expenditure of loan proceeds as capital expenditures by Borrower to acquire machinery, equipment and other assets necessary to enhance production capacity and meet current and forecasted order fulfillment needs.
“Loan” means the extension of credit made by Lender to Borrower evidenced by this Note.
“Maturity Date” means September 23, 2022, or such earlier date on which the obligations under this Note become due and payable pursuant to the terms hereof.
“Payment Date” means the 23rd day of each month of each fiscal year of Borrower; provided that if the 23rd day of a month is not a Business Day, the payment due on such date shall be due on the immediately preceding Business Day.
“Person” means any natural person, corporation, limited liability company, joint venture, limited liability partnership, partnership, association, trust or other entity or any Governmental Authority.
“Related Documents” means this Note, any General Business Security Agreement thereafter executed, all as amended, restated, replaced, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time.
2. Interest Rate; Default Rate; Late Fee.
2.1 Interest Rate. The interest rate to be applied to the unpaid principal balance of the Loan will be a per annum rate equal to 12.0 percent per annum. Interest on this Note is computed on an Actual 360 basis; that is, by applying the ratio of the interest rate over a year of 360 days, multiplied by the outstanding principal balance, multiplied by the actual number of days the principal balance is outstanding. All interest payable under this Note is computed using this method.
2.2 Default Rate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the unpaid principal balance of the Loan and any accrued and unpaid interest shall bear interest at an annual rate (the “Default Rate”) equal to the rate otherwise in effect under Section 2.1 plus 3.0 percentage points, payable upon demand. On and after the Maturity Date, the unpaid principal balance of the Loan and all accrued interest thereon shall bear interest at the Default Rate, payable upon demand.
2.3 Late Fee. If a payment is not made on or before the 15th day after its due date, Borrower will be charged 5.00% of the unpaid portion of the regularly scheduled payment.
2.4 Maximum Rate of Interest. Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to require Borrower to pay or be liable for the payment of interest upon the Loan in excess of the maximum legal rate of interest (if there be any maximum) allowable under the laws of the State of Arizona. If for any reason interest in excess of the amount as limited in the foregoing sentence shall have been paid hereunder, whether by reason of acceleration of this Note, payment of any penalty or premium, or otherwise, then and in that event, any such excess interest shall constitute and be treated as a payment of principal hereunder and shall operate to reduce the principal balance of the Loan by the amount of such excess, or if in excess of the then outstanding principal balance of the Loan, such excess shall be refunded.
3.1 Interest Only. Borrower shall pay Lender all accrued interest (only) on a monthly basis, commencing on October 23, 2020 and each thirty (30) days thereafter (“Payment Date”), provided, that any remaining outstanding principal balance of the Loan, together with all unpaid accrued interest thereon, shall be repaid in full on the Maturity Date.
3.2 Application of Payments. Unless otherwise agreed or required by applicable law, payments will be applied first to any accrued unpaid interest; then to principal then to any unpaid collection costs; and then to any late charges. Borrower will pay Lender at Lender’s address shown above or at such other place as Lender may designate in writing.
3.3 Early Payment. Borrower may pay all or a portion of the amount owed earlier than it is due. Early payments will not, unless agreed to by Lender in writing, relieve the Borrower of its obligation to continue to make payments on this Note. Rather, early payments will reduce the principal balance due and may result in Borrower making fewer payments. Borrower agrees not to send Lender payments marked “paid in full”, “without recourse”, or similar language. If Borrower sends such a payment, Lender may accept it without communications concerning disputed amounts, including any check or other payment instrument that indicates that the payment constitutes “payment in full” of the amount owed or that is tendered with other conditions or limitations or as full satisfaction of a disputed amount must be mailed or delivered to: Forest Street, LLC, 7681 E. Gray Road, Scottsdale, Arizona 85260.
4. Prepayment. Borrower may prepay the Loan together with any accrued and unpaid interest thereon at any time in whole or in part without premium or penalty.
5. Quarterly Monitoring Fee. One percent (1%) of the principal amount and then accrued interest paid quarterly during the Term of this Agreement.
6. Representations and Warranties. To induce Lender to make the Loan, Borrower represents and warrants to Lender that:
6.1 Organization; Subsidiaries; Corporate Power. Borrower is a corporation or limited liability company, as applicable, duly organized and validly existing under the laws of the State of Delaware.
6.2 Authorization and Binding Effect. The execution and delivery by Borrower of the Related Documents, and the performance by Borrower of its obligations thereunder: (a) are within its power as a limited liability company and/or corporation, as applicable, (b) have been duly authorized by proper action on the part of the governing body of Borrower, (c) are not in violation of any Requirement of Law, the organizational or charter documents of Borrower or the terms of any agreement, restriction or undertaking to which Borrower is a party or by which Borrower is bound, and (d) do not require the approval or consent of the holders of the equity interests of Borrower, any Governmental Authority or any other Person, other than those obtained and in full force and effect. The Related Documents, when executed and delivered, will constitute the valid and binding obligations of Borrower enforceable in accordance with their terms, except as limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or similar laws of general application affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights and except to the extent that general principles of equity might affect the specific enforcement of such Related Documents.
6.3 Accuracy of Information. All information, certificates or statements given to Lender pursuant to this Note shall be true and complete when given.
7. Events of Default, Acceleration and Remedies.
7.1 Events of Default. The occurrence of any of the following shall constitute an Event of Default under this Note:
(a) Borrower fails to pay all or any portion of any amount due hereunder when the same becomes due and payable, whether at a stated payment date or by acceleration, and such failure continues for ten days following Borrower’s receipt of Lender’s written notice of such failure; or

8.3 Successors and Assigns. This Note shall be binding upon Borrower and upon Borrower’s successors and assigns, and shall inure to the benefit of Lender and its successors and assigns; provided that Borrower’s rights under this Note are not assignable without the prior written consent of Lender.
8.4 Severability. In the event that any provision of this Note is deemed to be invalid by reason of the operation of any law or by reason of the interpretation placed thereon by any Governmental Authority, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining terms and provisions of this Note shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby, all of which shall remain in full force and effect, and the affected term or provision shall be modified to the minimum extent permitted by law so as to achieve most fully the intention of this Note.
8.5 Time of the Essence. Time for the performance of the obligations under this Note is of the essence.
8.6 Expenses. Borrower agrees to pay on demand (i) all out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Lender in connection with the administration, amendment or enforcement of this Note and the other Related Documents including the reasonable fees and expenses of Lender’s counsel, (ii) any taxes (including any interest and penalties relating thereto) payable by Lender on or with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Note (Borrower hereby agreeing to indemnify Lender with respect thereto) and (iii) all out-of-pocket expenses, including the reasonable fees and expenses of Lender’s counsel, incurred by Lender in connection with any litigation, proceeding or dispute in any way related to Lender’s relationship with Borrower, whether arising hereunder or otherwise.
