Note 16. Pending Acquisition
On March 8, 2017, Aspen entered into a letter of intent to acquire a regionally accredited for profit university for $9 million. The letter of intent is non-binding in material respects except for a no shop and certain other aspects. It is subject to a number of contingencies including execution of a Merger Agreement within 60 days and there is an important financial contingency that must be met by the end of calendar 2017. In furtherance of this possible acquisition, the Company lent $900,000 to the target with the loan guaranteed by its principal owner. The Company also entered into a Marketing Consulting Agreement with this university. If the Merger Agreement is not entered into within 60 days or the parties otherwise terminate the proposed merger, the $900,000 and 8% per annum interest is immediately due. Otherwise it is a credit towards the $2.5 million cash due at closing. The Company drew the $900,000 from the third party line of credit. (See Note 10, and Note 17 for definitive agreement.)
