Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

Effective April 8, 2020, Calvin Lim resigned as a member of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Purebase Corporation (the “Company”). His resignation was not the result of any dispute or disagreement with the Company or the Board on any matter relating to the operations, policies or practices of the Company.

 

Effective April 8, 2020, Mr. Jeffrey Joseph Guzy was appointed to serve on the Board, filling the vacancy created by Mr. Lim’s resignation. Mr. Guzy shall serve on the Board and shall hold office until the next election of directors by shareholders and until his successor is elected and qualified or until his earlier resignation or removal.

 

Mr. Guzy was appointed as the chairman of the Audit Committee and the Compensation Committee.

 

Mr. Guzy, age 68, was selected as a director for his general business management experience and experience serving on the board of directors of public companies, along with his leadership skills and entrepreneurial spirit, will aid the Company to succeed going forward.

 

The Company entered into a Director Agreement with Mr. Guzy effective as of April 8, 2020 (the “Agreement”) for a term of twelve months or until his removal or resignation. Pursuant to the Agreement, Mr. Guzy shall receive $1,000 per month, which shall accrue as debt until the Company has its first cash flow positive month. At that time, the Company shall make arrangements to pay the accrued monthly fee. If the term is completed or he has been removed or resigned, then the amount owed shall be converted to shares of common stock at the lower of $0.15 per share or the 20-day VWAP from the last date Mr. Guzy was on the board.

 

Mr. Guzy was also granted 250,000 stock options with an exercise price of $0.10 per share. The options are exercisable for five years. The Agreement also contains customary confidentiality and non-compete provisions.

 

Other than as described above, there are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Guzy and any other person pursuant to which he was appointed as a director of the Company. In addition, there are no family relationships between Mr. Guzy and any of the Company’s other officers or directors. Further, there are no transactions since the beginning of our last fiscal year, or any currently proposed transaction, in which the Company is a participant, the amount involved exceeds $120,000, and in which Mr. Guzy had, or will have, a direct or indirect material interest, other than as described above.

 

The foregoing description of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.14 and incorporated herein in its entirety by reference.

 

 
 

 

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

On April 8, 2020, the Company issued a press release with respect to the appointment of Mr. Guzy to the Board. A copy of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and incorporated herein by reference.

 

The information in this Item 7.01 of this Report, including Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any of the Company’s filings under the Securities Act, or the Exchange Act, whether made before or after the date hereof, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference to this Report in such filing.
