5. CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES 
January Debentures
On January 23, 2017, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (“January SPA”) for the sale of a convertible debenture (“January debenture”) with an original principal amount of $262,500, for consideration of $250,000, with a prorated five percent original issue discount (“OID”). The debenture has a onetime interest charge of twelve percent applied on the issuance date and due on the maturity date, which is two years from the date of each payment of consideration. The January SPA included a warrant to purchase 350,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. The warrants have a five year term and vest such that the buyer shall receive 1.4 warrants for every dollar funded to the Company under the January debenture. The Company received $50,000 at closing, with additional consideration to be paid at the holder’s option. Upon the closing the buyer was granted a warrant to purchase 70,000 shares of the Company’s common stock.
The January debentures are convertible at an original conversion price of $0.35, subject to adjustment if the Company’s common stock trades at a price lower than $0.60 per share during the fortyfive day period immediately preceding August 15, 2017, in which case the conversion price is reset to sixty percent of the lowest trade occurring during the twentyfive days prior to the conversion date. Additionally, the conversion price, as well as other terms including interest rates, original issue discounts, warrant coverage, adjusts if any future financings have more favorable terms. The January debenture also has piggyback registration rights.
The conversion feature of the January debenture meets the definition of a derivative and due to the adjustment to the conversion price to occur upon subsequent sales of securities at a price lower than the original conversion price, requires bifurcation and is accounted for as a derivative liability. The derivative was initially recognized at an estimated fair value of $85,000 and created a discount on the January debentures that will be amortized over the life of the debentures using the effective interest rate method. The fair value of the embedded derivative is measured and recognized at fair value each subsequent reporting period and the changes in fair value are recognized in the Consolidated Statement of Operations as a change in fair value of derivative liability.
The Company estimated the fair value of the conversion feature derivatives embedded in the convertible debentures based on weighted probabilities of assumptions used in the Black Scholes pricing model. The key valuation assumptions used consist, in part, of the price of the Company’s common stock of $0.46 at issuance date; a risk free interest rate of 1.16% and expected volatility of the Company’s common stock, of 384.75%, and the various estimated reset exercise prices weighted by probability. This resulted in the calculated fair value of the debt discount being greater than the face amount of the debt, and the excess amount of $35,000 was immediately expensed as Financing costs. As the discount was in excess of the face amount of the debenture, the effective interest rate is not determinable, and as such, all of the discount was immediately expensed.
The derivative was remeasured as of March 31, 2017, resulting in an estimated fair value of $74,000, for a decrease in fair value of $11,000. The key valuation assumptions used consist, in part, of the price of the Company’s common stock of $0.40; a risk free interest rate of 1.16% and expected volatility of the Company’s common stock, of 388.06%, and the various estimated reset exercise prices weighted by probability.
The warrants have an original exercise price of $0.60, which adjusts for any future dilutive issuances. As a result of the dilutive issuance adjustment provision, the warrants have been classified out of equity as a warrant liability. The Company estimated the fair value of the warrant liability using the Black Scholes pricing model. The key valuation assumptions used consist, in part, of the price of the Company’s common stock of $0.46 at issuance date; a risk free interest rate of 1.88% and expected volatility of the Company’s common stock, of 309.96%, resulting in a fair value of $32,000. As noted above, the calculated fair value of the discount is greater than the face amount of the debt, and therefore, the excess amount of $32,000 was immediately expensed as Financing costs. The warrant liability was remeasured as of March 31, 2017, resulting in an estimated fair value of $28,000, for a decrease in fair value of $4,000. The key valuation assumptions used consists, in part, of the price of the Company’s common stock of $0.40; a risk free interest rate of 1.88% and expected volatility of the Company’s common stock, of 292.42%.
March Debentures
On March 28, 2017, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (“SPA”) for the purchase of up to $400,000 in convertible debentures (“March debentures”), due 3 years from issuance. The SPA consists of three separate convertible debentures, the first purchase which occurred at the signing closing date on March 28, 2017, for $100,000 with a purchase price of $90,000 (an OID of $10,000). The second closing is to occur by mutual agreement of the buyer and Company, at any time sixty to ninety days following the signing closing date, for $150,0000 with a purchase price of $135,000 (an OID of $15,000). The third closing is to occur sixty to ninety days after the second closing for $150,000 with a purchase price of $135,000 (an OID of $15,000). The SPA also includes a commitment fee to include 100,000 restricted shares of common stock of the Company upon the signing closing date. The commitment shares fair value was calculated as $34,000, based on the market value of the common shares at the closing date of $0.34, and was recognized as a debt discount. The conversion price is fixed at $0.30 for the first 180 days. After 180 days, or in the event of a default, the conversion price becomes the lower of $0.30 or 60% (or 55% based on certain conditions) of the lowest closing bid price for the past 20 days.
The conversion feature of the March debenture meets the definition of a derivative as it would not be classified as equity were it a standalone instrument, and therefore requires bifurcation and is accounted for as a derivative liability. The derivative was initially recognized at an estimated fair value of $170,000 and created a discount on the March debentures that will be amortized over the life of the debentures using the effective interest rate method. The fair value of the embedded derivative is measured and recognized at fair value each subsequent reporting period and the changes in fair value are recognized in the Consolidated Statement of Operations as Change in fair value of derivative liability.
The Company estimated the fair value of the conversion feature derivatives embedded in the convertible debentures based on weighted probabilities of assumptions used in the Black Scholes pricing model. The key valuation assumptions used consist, in part, of the price of the Company’s common stock of $0.40 at issuance date; a risk free interest rate of 1.56% and expected volatility of the Company’s common stock, of 333.75%, and the various estimated reset exercise prices weighted by probability. This resulted in the calculated fair value of the debt discount being greater than the face amount of the debt, and the excess amount of $104,000, including the commitment fees, was immediately expensed as financing costs.
The debenture is also redeemable at the option of the Company, at amounts ranging from 105% to 140% of the principal and accrued interest balance, based on the redemption date’s passage of time ranging from 90 days to 180 days from the date of issuance of each debenture.
