Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On August 20, 2021, NewAge, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”), dated as of August 20, 2021, by and among the Company, Morinda Holdings, Inc. (“Morinda Holdings”), Morinda, Inc. (“Morinda”), Tropical Resources, Inc. (“Tropical” and together with the Company, Morinda Holdings and Morinda, the “Sellers”) and TCI Co., Ltd. (“TCI”). Morinda Holdings, Morinda and Tropical are direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company.


Pursuant to the Agreement, the Sellers are (i) selling certain manufacturing equipment (the “Purchased Equipment”) used by Tropical located at the Sellers’ leased facility in American Fork, Utah (the “Facility”) to TCI for $3.5 million (the “Purchase Price”) and a share of the revenue going forward for five years, (ii) transferring the Facility lease to TCI, and (iii) engaging TCI to manufacture products currently manufactured by Tropical at the Facility. The closing is expected to occur on or about October 1, 2021 (the “Closing Date”). Half of the Purchase Price for the Purchased Equipment will be paid by TCI within 10 business days of the Closing Date and the other half of the Purchase Price will be paid by TCI within three business days after completion of a Transition Services Agreement, to be entered into by the Sellers and TCI. The Sellers are entitled to semi-annual royalty payments from TCI equal to three percent (3%) of net sales revenue, which is the net amount of purchase orders received by TCI from Seller entities after the Closing Date and ending on the fifth anniversary of the Closing Date.


Prior to the Closing Date, the Sellers shall use best efforts to transfer the business relationships of its existing clients to TCI. After the Closing Date, TCI agrees to manufacture the Sellers’ products that have been manufactured at the Facility and the parties agree to cooperate in good faith and use commercially reasonable efforts to reduce the costs of the Sellers’ products manufactured by TCI.


Under the Agreement, the Sellers have agreed to (a) a customary non-competition provision preventing the Sellers from engaging in the manufacture of beverages in the United States for two years commencing on the Closing Date (the “Restricted Period”), and (b) a customary non-solicitation provision preventing the Sellers from soliciting TCI employees during the Restricted Period. The Agreement also contains customary representations, warranties, covenants and indemnities by the parties and customary termination provisions.
