Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

  

On November 18, 2019, Freedom Leaf Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with MCP Wellness II LP, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Investor”), pursuant to which the Investor agreed to purchase (the “Securities Purchase”) for an aggregate purchase price of $5,000,000 (the “Purchase Price”): (i) a convertible promissory note (the “Convertible Note”) in the original principal amount of $5,000,000; and (ii) a three-year warrant to acquire 15,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock exercisable at a purchase price of $0.09 per share (the “Warrant”; the Convertible Note and the Warrant, collectively, the “New Securities”).

 

The Purchase Price is payable $1,901,800 in cash and $3,098,200 via the cancellation of the following promissory notes, each of which was assigned to the Investor by the applicable holder thereof immediately prior to the closing of the Securities Purchase: (i) Promissory Note dated as of April 15, 2019 issued by the Company’s subsidiary, ECS Labs, LLC, in favor of Merida Capital Partners II LP (“MCP II”) for a principal sum of $200,000; (ii) Promissory Note dated as of May 21, 2019, issued by the Company in favor of MCP II for a principal sum of $183,750; (iii) Promissory Note dated as of June 18, 2019, issued by the Company in favor of Merida Capital Partners III LP (“MCP III”) for a principal sum of $630,000; (iv) Promissory Note dated as of July 24, 2019, issued by the Company in favor of MCP III for a principal sum of $200,000; (v) Promissory Note dated as of August 20, 2019, issued by the Company in favor of MCP III for a principal sum of $400,000; (vi) Promissory Note dated as of September 13, 2019, issued by the Company in favor of MCP III for a principal sum of $500,000; and (viii) Promissory Note dated as of October 15, 2019, issued by the Company in favor of MCP III for a principal sum of $900,000. The Convertible Note is convertible at the holder’s election into shares of the Company’s common stock at $0.20 per share, accrues interest at 8% per annum with interest payable by increasing the principal amount of the note by the accrued interest amounts, and matures on November 18, 2022.

 

The Convertible Note and Warrant each contain anti-dilution provisions providing for the adjustment of the applicable conversion or exercise price upon the issuance of Company securities at an effective price per share less than the applicable conversion or exercise price, as well as standard beneficial ownership limitation provisions prohibiting conversion or exercise if such conversion or exercise would result in the holder beneficially owning more than 4.9% of the Company’s common stock, unless such percentage is increased or decreased up to a maximum of 9.9% in the holder’s sole discretion, provided that any increase in the beneficial ownership limitation will not be effective until 61 days following notice to the Company. The Securities Purchase Agreement contains various affirmative covenants that require the Company to, among other things, timely file all reports with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”); provide the Investor with copies of the Company’s Commission reports and press releases; reimburse the Investor for legal fees and expenses associated with the transaction; reserve shares of common stock for issuance upon conversion of the Convertible Note and exercise of the Warrant; and maintain the Company’s DTC eligibility.

 

On November 18, 2019, the Company entered into a Strategic Consulting Agreement (the “Consulting Agreement”) with Merida Advisor, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Consultant”) and an affiliate of the Investor, MCP II and MCP III, pursuant to which the Consultant would render strategic advice relating to business development and potential corporate transactions and would receive (i) $5,000 per month beginning January 1, 2020, (ii) 6,250,000 shares of Company common stock immediately for the benefit of MCP II and MCP III, and (iii) 6,250,000 shares of Company common stock on the six-month anniversary of the Consulting Agreement for the benefit of MCP II and MCP III (all 12,500,000 shares collectively the “Consulting Shares”). The Consulting Agreement has an initial term through December 31, 2020, and thereafter either party can terminate the Consulting Agreement at any time for any reason or no reason.
