Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Agreements with New Member of Board of Advisors

 

On April 7, 2021, the Registrant entered into an agreement with Pranav Nawani, PhD, pursuant to which he joins Messrs. Andrew Spencer and David E. Burnett on the Registrant’s Board of Advisors. A copy of such agreement is filed as exhibit 10.01 to this current report. The material terms of such agreements pertaining to compensation are identical to those of Messrs. Spencer and Burnett as disclosed in the current report on Form 8-K filed by the Registrant with the Commission on December 1, 2020.

 

Dr. Nawani has previously worked with Messrs. Spencer and Burnett, two other members of Puget’s Board of Advisors, in development of particulate nanotechnology for use in augmenting electrical generation and information storage capacity for different media, including solar panels, an area of interest for Puget as it expands its operations.

 

Dr. Pranav Nawani has joined its Board of Advisors. Dr. Nawani, age 47, is a Research Scientist at Washington State University’s Institute for Shock Physics, Applied Sciences Laboratory.

 

Dr. Nawani has a long trajectory investigating issues related to nanomaterials and polymer nanocomposite materials research and his research lies at the confluence of polymer chemistry, polymer physics, applied chemistry, material science, and biomaterials. Dr. Nawani’s research interests are focused on developing advanced materials and polymer nanocomposites for applications in paints, coatings, aerospace, automotive, energy, biomedical device, and the commodity polymer industry. He graduated from Stony Brook University with a PhD in Chemistry. Prior to receiving his PhD, he earned a Bachelor’s degree (Honors) in Chemistry and a Master of Science in Physical Chemistry degree from Delhi University in Delhi, India. He also obtained an MBA in Marketing from the Somaiya Institute of Management Science & Research in India and a Master of Science degree in Chemistry from Stony Brook University. Dr. Nawani has more than seventeen years of diverse academic and industrial experience, five years of which were prior to the beginning of his research career as a Ph.D. candidate. Prior to his Ph.D., he worked in the areas of production, advertising, marketing, and product development. He also has more than 12 years of multi-disciplinary research experience involving synthesizing, formulating, functionalizing, modifying and investigating interfacial interaction, structure, morphology and properties of various polymers, filler materials, biopolymers, and polymer nanocomposites materials. Dr. Nawani has developed materials and advanced nanocomposites for various commercial applications, has published in various international journals and has been awarded a patent in development of biodegradable hydraulic fluid and has filed several provisional patent applications for development of various materials and coatings. Prior to joining the Applied Sciences Laboratory, Dr. Nawani was a technical director at Nano Science Engineering Corporation (nanoSEC) in Michigan where, as head of research and development, he developed various novel technologies in materials and polymer composites.
