Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.  

 

Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc. (“Registrant”) executed a Sublease Termination Agreement on October 16, 2020, pursuant to which Registrant’s subleases with Royal Asset Management, LLC (“RAM”) and Venture Product Consulting, LLC (“VPC”), respectively, over the Elizabeth Street facility located in Denver were terminated (the “Agreement”). As part of this Agreement, RAM executed and delivered to Registrant a promissory note, in the principal amount of $1,418,480, representing deferred rent due. Conjunctively, VPC executed and delivered to Registrant its promissory note in the principal amount of $64,344, also representing past due rent. In addition, RAM agreed to pay to Registrant an aggregate $543,916 in 46 monthly payments as scheduled in the terminated sublease (“Future Rent Payments”), provided, however, that no monthly rent payment will be due Registrant in any month that RAM’s gross revenue and taxes are less than $725,000 derived from its Alameda Street retail marijuana operations, located in Denver.

 

This promissory note debt and the Future Rent Payments become due and payable upon the earlier date of (i) the consummation of a merger between Registrant and RAM; (ii) one business day following receipt by Registrant of a notice from RAM/VPC that they are terminating merger discussions, or (iii) 18 months following the date of the Agreement if Registrant sends written notice to RAM/VPC that it is terminating all merger discussions (the “Maturity Date”).

 

Readers are cautioned not to rely upon the foregoing summary but to read the full Agreement and exhibits attached to this current report.

 

Registrant released a news report on October 21, 2020, announcing the Agreement, a copy of which is attached to this current report on Form 8-K.
