Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

 

On June 4, 2020, Prime EFS LLC (“Prime EFS”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Transportation and Logistics Systems, Inc. (the “Company”), agreed with two related creditors (the “Creditors”) to one payment plan (the “Payment Plan”) to settle, without interest, a total outstanding balance of $2,038,556.06 (the “Outstanding Balance”) owed by Prime EFS to the Creditors. Pursuant to the Payment Plan, Prime EFS made a payment of $75,000.00 to the Creditors on or before June 5, 2020 and must make a second payment of $75,000.00 to the Creditors on or before June 12, 2020. Thereafter, beginning on June 19, 2020, Prime EFS will make weekly payments of $15,000.00 to the Creditors each Friday for 125 weeks ending with a final payment of $13,556.06 on November 18, 2022 at which time the Outstanding Balance will be paid in full. Prime EFS is permitted to prepay the Outstanding Balance at any time without penalty.

 

In the event that Prime EFS fails to make a scheduled payment or otherwise defaults on its obligations, the remaining Outstanding Balance shall be due in full within five business days of receipt by Prime EFS of a notice of default from the Creditors. If Prime EFS does not pay the remaining Outstanding Balance within five business days of receipt of a notice of default, the Creditors shall be entitled to 9% per annum simple interest on the remaining Outstanding Balance from the date of default and to recover attorneys’ fees and costs for enforcement.

 

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

Pursuant to Section 4.9 of a Securities Purchase Agreement, dated as of August 30, 2019, by and among the Company and the investors named therein (the “Investors”), the Company is required to keep reserved for issuance to the Investors three times the number of shares of common stock issuable to the Investors upon conversion or exercise, as applicable, of convertible notes and warrants held by the Investors (the “Reserve Requirement”). If the Company fails to meet the Reserve Requirement within 45 days after written notice from an Investor, the Company must, inter alia, sell to the Lead Investor (as defined in the Securities Purchase Agreement) for $100 a series of preferred stock which holds voting power equal to 51% of the number of votes eligible to vote at any special or annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders (with the power to take action by written consent in lieu of a stockholders meeting) for the sole purpose of amending the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation to increase the number of shares of common stock that the Company is authorized to issue, which such preferred stock shall be automatically cancelled upon the effectiveness of the resulting increase in the Company’s authorized stock. By letter agreement dated, June 4, 2020, the Lead Investor assigned this contract right to John Mercadante, the Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

 

The Company was unable to comply with the Reserve Requirement within 45 days after written notice from an Investor. Accordingly, on June 5, 2020, the Company sold to John Mercadante, for $100.00, 1 share of Series C Preferred Stock which has voting power equal to 51% of the number of votes eligible to vote at any special or annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders (with the power to take action by written consent in lieu of a stockholders meeting) for the sole purpose of amending the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation to increase the number of shares of common stock that the Company is authorized to issue. Upon the effectiveness of the amendment, the Series C Preferred Stock will be automatically cancelled. The Series C Preferred Stock is not entitled to vote on any other matter, is not entitled to dividends, is not convertible into any other security of the Company and is not entitled to any distributions upon liquidation of the Company. The Series C Preferred Stock was issued and sold pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

 

Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

 

On June 4, 2020, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board of Directors”) created a Series C issue of preferred stock (the “Series C Preferred Stock”) pursuant to the authority vested in the Board of Directors by the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation to issue up to 10,000,0000 shares of preferred stock, $0.001 par value per share, of which 8,300,000 are unissued and undesignated. The Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation explicitly authorize the Board of Directors to issue any or all of such shares of preferred stock in one (1) or more classes or series and to fix the designations, powers, preferences and rights, the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, including dividend rights, dividend rates, conversion rights, voting rights, terms of redemption, redemption prices, liquidation preferences and the number of shares constituting any class or series, without further vote or action by the stockholders.

 

 

 

 

The Board of Directors designated one share of preferred stock as Series C Preferred Stock. The Series C Preferred Stock votes together with the common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) as one class. Solely with respect to a proposal to amend the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation to increase the number of shares of Common Stock that the Company is authorized to issue (an “Authorized Share Increase Proposal”), the Series C Preferred Stock has voting power equal to 51% of the number of votes eligible to vote at any special or annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders (with the power to take action by written consent in lieu of a stockholders meeting). The Series C Preferred Stock does not have the right to vote and/or consent on any matter other than an Authorized Share Increase Proposal. Upon the effectiveness of an Authorized Share Increase Proposal, the Series C Preferred Stock will be automatically cancelled. The Series C Preferred Stock is not entitled to vote on any other matter, is not entitled to dividends and is not entitled to any distributions upon liquidation of the Company.

 

The Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series C Preferred Stock (the “Series C COD”) was filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada on June 4, 2020.

 

A copy of the Series C COD of the Company is attached as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The above description is qualified by reference to the complete text of the Series C COD.
