Item 2.04Triggering Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement.


As previously reported in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by DPW Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”), on July 2, 2019, pursuant to an Exchange Agreement of even date therewith, the Company issued to Bellridge Capital L.P. (“Bellridge”), a Convertible Promissory Note in the principal amount of $783,031.14 (the “Convertible Note”) with a maturity date of December 31, 2019 (the “Maturity Date”).


The Company received a notice of default (the “Notice”) from Bellridge on January 21, 2020 informing it that the Convertible Note was in default because the Company had not repaid the principal, interest, late charges, or other amounts when and as due thereunder. In addition, the Notice states that the Company failed to file a registration statement on Form S-3 for shares of common stock underlying the Convertible Note and obtain authorization thereof by the NYSE American by the agreed upon dates.


The Company notes that, as previously reported in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on September 26, 2019, the Company entered into a second exchange agreement with Bellridge, pursuant to which, in exchange for the Convertible Note, the Company sold to Bellridge a new convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $815,218.02 with the same Maturity Date.


Prior to receipt of the Notice from Bellridge, the Company was attempting to reach a negotiated settlement with Bellridge, and remains in discussions with Bellridge to do so. Notwithstanding receipt of the Notice, the Company hopes to continue to work with Bellridge to settle its obligations under the Convertible Note. The Company intends to vigorously defend its position should a mutually amicable resolution prove unattainable.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
