Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement
 
On December 14, 2009, SpongeTech Delivery Systems, Inc. (“SpongeTech”) entered into a Settlement Agreement and Release (the “Settlement Agreement”) with Sponge Tech, Inc. (“STI”), Spongeables LLC (“Spongeables”) and Michael Popovsky, an officer of STI and Spongeables (collectively, the “Defendants’).  A copy of the Settlement Agreement and all Exhibits thereto is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report.

By way of background, on October 4, 2009, SpongeTech commenced an action in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against Spongeables and subsequently amended the complaint to add the other Defendants (the “Lawsuit”). The complaint alleged, among other things, trade infringement, unfair competition, false description, injury to business reputation, and defamation.  The Defendants have denied any wrongdoing.

Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, the parties agreed to a dismissal of the Lawsuit with prejudice within five business days after execution of the Settlement Agreement, and SpongeTech released the Defendants, and the Defendants released SpongeTech, from any claims, demands and causes of action, whether in law or equity, that arise out of or relate to the claims in the Lawsuit or either were asserted or could have been asserted in the Lawsuit.

Further, Mr. Popovsky agreed to provide a clarification letter (“Clarification Letter”), which is attached to the Settlement Agreement as Exhibit B, with respect to an article in the New York Post dated September 22, 2009, and to send the Clarification Letter to the New York Post.

In addition, the Defendants agreed, among other things, to not use the mark SPONGETECH in connection with the sale of any product or service for sponges infused with soap and/or active ingredients, or any mark that is similar to, would cause dilution of, injury to or confusion with, SpongeTech’s marks or business reputation.  SpongeTech agreed to not use the mark SPONGEABLES or any of the Spongeable Marks in connection with the sale of any product or service for sponges embedded with cleaner, soap, shampoo, wax, degreaser and/or active product ingredients, or any mark that is similar to, would cause dilution of, injury to or confusion with, Spongeables’ marks or business reputation.

The foregoing summary of the agreements and transactions described in above is qualified in its entirety by reference to the definitive transaction document, a copy of which is attached as an exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
