Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

On February 26, 2021, Future FinTech Group Inc. (the “Company”) and Future Supply Chain Co., Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company and a company incorporated under the laws of China (“Buyer”) entered into a Share Exchange Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Sichuan Longma Electronic Technology Co. Ltd., a company incorporated under the laws of China (“Seller”) and Sichuan Ticode Supply Chain Management Co., Ltd., a company incorporated under the laws of China (the “Ticode”).

 

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company, through the Buyer will acquire 60% of the equity interest of Ticode from the Seller in exchange for 7,789,882 shares of common stock of the Company (the “Company Shares”). The Seller also agrees: (i) if Ticode does not achieve an Earning Before Interest and Taxes (the “EBIT”) for at least RMB 50 million (approximately $7.69 million) for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 as evidenced by the financial statements of Ticode audited by the auditor of the Company, the Seller shall transfer an additional 5% of the equity interest of Ticode to Buyer at no cost within 30 days of the date of the 2021 audit report; and (ii) if Ticode does not achieve an EBIT for at least RMB 57.5 million (approximately $8.85 million) for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 as evidenced by the financial statements of Ticode audited by the auditor of the Company, the Seller shall further transfer an additional 5% of the equity interest of Ticode to Buyer at no cost within 30 days of the date of the 2022 audit report. The transaction contemplated in the Agreement will close upon the satisfaction of certain closing conditions, including the Company to complete and effect the increase of its authorized shares of common stock to 300 million shares with the State of Florida and the Seller to enter into a Noncompetition and Non-solicitation Agreement in a form satisfactory to Company and Buyer which restricts the Seller and its affiliates from resigning from the Board or as an officer of Ticode and prohibits Seller and its affiliates from competing with Ticode for a term of five (5) years from the closing date. The parties also agree that the Board of Directors of Ticode will be composed of 5 directors. After the closing, Buyer and Seller will appoint designees to the Board of Directors of Ticode in proportion to their ownership in Ticode. The Seller further agrees that it shall not sell, transfer, dispose, pledge or contract to sell any of its remaining equity interest in Ticode without written consent by the Company for a period of 5 years from the closing date. After that, the Company has a right of first refusal to acquire any additional equity interest of Ticode from the Seller.

 

The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Agreement were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Agreement. In addition, such representations, warranties and covenants (i) are intended as a way of allocating the risk between the parties to the Agreement and not as statements of fact, and (ii) may apply standards of materiality in a way that is different from what may be viewed as material by shareholders of, or other investors in the Company. Accordingly, the Agreement is filed with this report only to provide investors with information regarding the terms of the transactions, and not to provide investors with any other factual information regarding the Company. Shareholders should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the Company. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the respective date of the Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures.

 

The foregoing description of the Share Exchange Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Share Exchange Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
