As previously reported, on May 16, 2019, Cuentas Inc. (the “Company” or “Cuentas”) entered into a term sheet with CIMA Telecom, Inc., a Florida corporation doing business as “CIMA Group” (“CIMA”) (the “Term Sheet”) outlining its License for the technology platforms (the “Platforms”) owned by two of CIMA’s wholly owned subsidiaries, Knetik, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Knetik”), and Auris, LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“Auris”), respectively. Collectively, the Platforms would provide the back-end software for the Cuentas General Purpose Card and compatibility via application programming interfaces, or APIs, with third party software and the mobile apps. Under the Term Sheet, CIMA will grant the Company a world-wide, perpetual, non-sublicensable license (the “License”) to utilize the Platforms and intellectual properties included in the Platforms for the Financial Technology (“FINTECH”) worldwide vertical markets. The License to be granted shall be exclusive for use within the FINTECH space, which for purposes of the License shall be defined as “connecting banking and prepaid card usage.”

 

On December 31, 2019, the Company entered into a series of integrated transactions to license the Platforms from CIMA, through CIMA’s wholly owned subsidiaries Knetik, and Auris (the “Transaction Closing”) pursuant to that certain Platform License Agreement, dated December 31, 2019 by and among (i) the Company, (ii) CIMA, (iii) Knetik and (iv) Auris (the “License Agreement”) and the various other agreements listed below.

 

Note and Warrant Purchase Agreement

 

Contemporaneously with the Transaction Closing, the Company entered into a Note and Warrant Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) by and between the Company and CIMA, pursuant to which the Company made and sold to (i) CIMA a 3% convertible promissory note (the “Convertible Promissory Note”) in the principal amount of $9,000,000 and (ii) (a) CIMA a warrant (the “CIMA Warrant”) , to purchase from the Company an aggregate of duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable shares (the “Shares”) of common stock of the Company, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), equal to twenty-five percent (25%) of shares of Common Stock upon the conversion of the Series B preferred stock. The Purchase Agreement contained customary representations, warranties, covenants, and conditions, including indemnification. As a condition to closing, the Company has agreed to take all necessary steps to amend and restate its Articles of Incorporation (the “A&R Articles”) and to amend and restate its Bylaws (the “A&R Bylaws”) and properly file and effect such A&R Articles and A&R Bylaws with the Secretary of State of the State of Florida and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, each as necessary, no later than June 30, 2020.
