(SLR), which was originally entered into on March 2, 2020 and subsequently amended on April 20, 2020 and December 2, 2020. This amendment includes changes to the Company’s ability to extend the interest-only period, reduction of certain revenue covenants and the elimination of the last tranche of term loan available to the Company.
The Company has the option, subject to certain conditions, to extend the interest only period on the original Term Loan A from 24 months to 36 months, which, if such conditions are met, would allow the commencement of payments of amortization of the principal of the loan starting on March 1, 2023.

As part of the December 2, 2020 amendment, the Company was authorized to borrow, at its option, up to $15.0 million in three separate tranches of $5.0 million (Term Loans B, C and D). The three tranches were available through June 20, 2021, December 20, 2021, and June 20, 2022, respectively, based on the achievement of year-over-year net product revenue targets for each tranche. The Company had previously elected not to draw any of the Term B or Term C tranches and, as part of this amendment, the Company agreed not to draw the Term D tranche.
