          In September 2012, we issued and sold a promissory note in the principal amount of $250,000 to White Rock Capital Partners, L.P., or White Rock, a beneficial owner of more than 5% of our capital stock. The promissory note carried interest at an annual rate of 5% and had a stated maturity of September 25, 2013, which was extended to September 25, 2014. In August 2014, we repaid the loan in full, including approximately $24,000 of accrued interest, with a portion of the net proceeds from our Class C preferred stock financing.

White Rock, NRM, JDH Investment, West Summit and Mr. Carbona provided no additional consideration in connection with the exchange. We estimate that, as of date of the exchange agreement, the fair value of the Class B-1 preferred shares issued in the exchange was $2.47 per share, compared to an estimated $1.51 per share of the common shares surrendered in the exchange.

We also received an option to acquire the worldwide commercial rights to products developed pursuant to the agreement. If we had exercised the option under the agreement, we would have paid Intrexon a technology access fee equal to the greater of 15 percent of the fair market value of our fully-diluted capital stock and $6.8 million, which fee could have been paid in either cash or stock. On December 1, 2013, the agreement was terminated, and the option terminated unexercised, without payment of any consideration to Intrexon.
