    We have evaluated events through the date of the filing of this report and, except as described below, have determined that no material subsequent events occurred that would require disclosure in the unaudited consolidated financial statements for the period ended September 30, 2023 or in the financial notes thereto.
Related Party Loans
On October 9, 2023, we entered into an agreement with each of John N. Hatsopoulos, a director and principal shareholder of registrant, and Earl R. Lewis, III, a director of registrant, pursuant to which Mr. Hatsopoulos agreed to provide financing to us of up to $1 million, and Mr. Lewis agreed to provide financing to us of $500,000, and potentially, an additional $500,000 at his discretion. We have the right to determine the amount of the loans at the time of a draw down, subject to the conditions in our agreements with each of Mr. Hatsopoulos and Mr. Lewis discussed below. The loans and terms of the loan agreements were unanimously approved by our board of directors.
The loans bear interest on the outstanding principal at the Internal Revenue Service’s Applicable Federal Rate to be determined at the time we issue a promissory note in connection with a loan drawdown. The principal amount and accrued interest of each loan is repayable one year from the date of issuance of the applicable promissory note. A note may be prepaid by us at any time. The principal amount of each loan and accrued interest is subject to mandatory prepayment in the event of a change of control of the registrant. The promissory notes are subject to customary events of default and are transferable provided the conditions to transfer set forth in the promissory notes are satisfied by the noteholder. The proceeds of the loans are expected to be used for general working capital purposes.
On October 10, 2023, we issued a promissory note and borrowed $500,000 from Mr. Hatsopoulos. The loan bears interest at 5.12% per annum.

Proposed Reverse Stock Split

On October 9, 2023, our board of directors authorized us to seek shareholder approval at a special meeting of our shareholders of an amendment to our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (“certificate of incorporation”) that would enable us to effect a combination of our outstanding shares of common stock into a lesser number of shares, or a reverse stock split. We intend to seek stockholder approval for three alternative amendments to our certificate of incorporation and to effect the reverse stock split at the alternative ratios of 1 for 4, 1 for 5, or 1 for 6. The determination of the ratio, implementation, and timing of any reverse stock split will be subject to further approval by our board of directors following receipt of shareholder approval at a special meeting of our shareholders.
