On March 17, 2017, the Company entered into a Notes Purchase Agreement with G FarmaLabs Limited (G Farma), a Nevada corporation. Under the Agreement the Company purchased two secured promissory notes from G Farma in an aggregate principal amount of $500,000, both of which bore interest at 7.42% per annum, with monthly payments beginning on April 15, 2017, and maturity on April 15, 2022. The two G Farma notes, as amended by subsequent addenda, are secured by all property, real and personal, tangible or intangible of G Farma and are guaranteed by GF Brands, Inc. and two majority shareholders of G Farma. Effective as of March 4, 2019, the Company and G Farma had executed eight addenda subsequent to the original agreement. Addendum II through Addendum VIII increased the aggregate principal face amount of the working capital note to $990,000 and increased the monthly payments on the working capital note to $10,239 per month beginning March 15, 2019. G Farma has not made scheduled payments on the notes receivable since February 19, 2019.
On September 6, 2018, as a result of an Equity Purchase and Issuance Agreement, certain entities were obligated to deliver to Mentor equity interests equal to 3.75% of G Farma and its affiliates (G Farma Equity Entities) in exchange for Mentor relinquishing its contingent equity rights under the Rights Agreement, increasing the working capital loan by $79,000, and leasing $171,000 of additional equipment to G Farma through Partner I. At December 31, 2018, Mentor had estimated the fair value of the 3.75% equity interest in the G Farma Equity Entities Mentor was supposed to receive, based on then licensed operations of the G Farma Equity Entities, at $41,600. On March 4, 2019, Addendum VIII increased the working capital note by $31,000 and the Company obtained from G Farma an obligation to issue an additional 0.093% interest in the G Farma Equity Entities, resulting in a total 3.843% equity interest in the G Farma Equity Entities and included the addition of Goya Ventures, LLC as a party to the Equity Purchase and Issuance Agreement. However, due to the uncertain financial position of the G Farma Entities, following the closure of its Corporate office and impoundment of certain Mentor assets leased to G Farma, described in Notes 1 and 10, the Company fully impaired its equity interests in G Farma Equity Entities and recorded a loss on investments of $41,600 in the quarter ended March 31, 2019.
In addition, on March 17, 2017, the Company entered into a Consulting Agreement with G Farma whereby the Company was to receive a monthly consulting fee in arrears of $1,400 per month. This monthly consulting fee was increased proportionately with Addendum II and Addenda IV through VIII, resulting in a required fee of $2,828, effective March 15, 2019; however consulting fees have not been remitted by G Farma since February 19, 2019 and recognition of consulting fee revenue was suspended, effective April 1, 2019. Consulting fee revenue was $0 and $0 for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Consulting fee revenue was $0 and $8,310 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
As described in Note 1, on February 22, 2019, the City of Corona Building Department closed access to G Farmas corporate location and posted a notice preventing entry to the facility; the Company was not informed by G Farma of this incident until March 14, 2019. The notice cited unpermitted modifications to electrical, mechanical and plumbing, including all undetermined building modifications, as the reason for closure. On April 24, 2019, the Company was notified that certain G Farma assets at the corporate location, including equipment leased to G Farma by Mentor Partner I valued at approximately $427,804, were impounded by the Corona Police. This event significantly impacted G Farmas financial position and its ability to make future payments under the notes purchase agreements and the finance leases receivable, described in Note 9, due the Company. In March 2020, we discovered that an additional component valued at $36,594 was missing from the equipment we recovered but we are uncertain whether this was taken by the Corona Police.
G Farma has not made scheduled payments on the notes receivable or the G Farma finance lease receivable, described in Note 9, since February 19, 2019. All arrangements with G Farma, were placed on non-accrual basis effective April 1, 2019. Accrual of interest on notes receivable and finance leases, as well as consulting revenue, was suspended April 1, 2019.
