Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

On December 31, 2019, the Reporting Person and the Company entered into the Purchase Agreement, pursuant to which the Reporting Person was issued (i) the Convertible Note, and (ii) the Warrant. The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, covenants, and conditions, including indemnification. The purchase price for the Convertible Note was funded from the working capital of the Reporting Person.

After the execution of the Purchase Agreement, on December 31, 2019, pursuant to the terms of the Convertible Note, the Reporting Person delivered a notice of conversion to the Company, thereby electing to convert all unpaid principal and accrued and unpaid interest under the Convertible Note into 1,757,478 shares of Common Stock constituting twenty-five percent (25%) of the issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company as of December 31, 2019 (not taking into account the Warrant). The Convertible Note is attached as Exhibit 10.2, and any description thereof is qualified in its entirety by reference thereto.

The Warrant entitles the Reporting Person to purchase from the Company, in the aggregate, an amount of duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock equal to twenty-five percent (25%) of total outstanding shares of the Company on a fully-diluted basis (taking into account any warrants, options, debt convertible into shares or other rights underlying shares of the Company) as of December 31, 2019. The Warrant’s exercise period commenced on December 31, 2019 and ends on the earlier of (a) thirty (30) days following the date on which the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation has been filed with and accepted by the Secretary of State of the State of Florida or (b) upon a Change of Control (as defined in the Warrant).

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

The Reporting Person acquired the Shares because it believes the Shares are undervalued and represent an attractive investment opportunity. The Reporting Person intends to have discussions with the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) and management regarding the ways in which the Company can take steps to increase shareholder value, including discussions relating to the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a)-(j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D, and specifically including, without limitation: (i) the acquisition by the Reporting Person (whether alone or in conjunction with other parties) of additional shares, which could ultimately amount to a control stake in the Company; (ii) engaging in an extraordinary corporate transaction with the Company or any of its subsidiaries (such as a merger or reorganization); (iii) acquiring a material amount of assets of the Company or any of its subsidiaries; (iv) a change in the present Board or management of the Company, including proposals to change the number or term of directors or to fill any existing vacancies on the Board; (v) changes in the Company’s current Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws or other documents which may impede the acquisition of control of the Company by any person; and/or (vi) causing the Shares to be uplisted to the NASDAQ Capital Market. The Reporting Person may seek to influence such actions through customary means including presenting its views for consideration to the Company, shareholders and other interested parties, privately or publicly, and, if necessary, through the exercise of its shareholder rights, including the right to propose new directors for the Company’s Board. The Reporting Person expects to have discussions with the Company’s management and Board, shareholders and other interested parties relating to such matters. The Reporting Person may also take other steps to increase shareholder value, including, without limitation, discussing with the Board and management the Company’s financial position and strategic direction, actions taken by the Company’s Board and management, general economic and industry conditions.
