Any such forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, financial guidance, are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements include all statements that do not directly or exclusively relate to historical facts. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “intend,” “plan,” “goal,” “seek,” “strategy,” “future,” “likely,” “believes,” “estimates,” “projects,” “forecasts,” “predicts,” “potential,” or the negative of those terms, and similar expressions and comparable terminology. These include, but are not limited to, statements relating to future events or our future financial and operating results, plans, objectives, expectations and intentions. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these expectations may not be achieved. Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they represent our intentions, plans, expectations, assumptions and beliefs about future events and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors outside of our control that could cause our actual results, performance or achievement to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In addition to the risks described above, these risks and uncertainties include: our ability to successfully execute our business strategies, including integration of acquisitions and the future acquisition of other businesses to grow our Company; customers’ cancellation on short notice of master service agreements from which we derive a significant portion of our revenue or our failure to renew such master service agreements on favorable terms or at all; our ability to attract and retain key personnel and skilled labor to meet the requirements of our labor-intensive business or labor difficulties which could have an effect on our ability to bid for and successfully complete contracts; the ultimate geographic spread, duration and severity of the coronavirus outbreak and the effectiveness of actions taken, or actions that may be taken, by governmental authorities to contain the outbreak or ameliorate its effects; our failure to compete effectively in our highly competitive industry could reduce the number of new contracts awarded to us or adversely affect our market share and harm our financial performance; our ability to adopt and master new technologies and adjust certain fixed costs and expenses to adapt to our industry’s and customers’ evolving demands; our history of losses, deficiency in working capital and a stockholders’ deficit and our ability to achieve sustained profitability; material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting and our ability to maintain effective controls over financial reporting in the future; our substantial indebtedness could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations and our ability to meet our payment obligations; the impact of new or changed laws, regulations or other industry standards that could adversely affect our ability to conduct our business; and changes in general market, economic, social and political conditions in the United States and global economies or financial markets, including those resulting from natural or man-made disasters.

 

These forward-looking statements represent our estimates and assumptions only as of the date of this report and, except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise after the date of this report. Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements and should consider various factors, including the risks described, among other places, in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, as well as any amendments thereto, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

 
 

 

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

Issuance of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock

 

On August 30, 2019, Transportation and Logistics Systems, Inc. (the “Company”) issued and sold to investors convertible promissory notes (the “Notes”), and warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase shares of our common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with the accredited investors (together with their respective heirs, successors and assigns, the “Investors”). These Notes and Warrants include down-round provisions under which the Note conversion price and Warrant exercise price were reduced, on a full-ratchet basis, to a fraction of a penny due to Company defaults on the Notes and other convertible debt securities.

 

As previously disclosed by the Company on the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on July 21, 2020, the Company entered into an Exchange Agreement with one of the Investors to exchange outstanding Notes and Warrants for Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series D”). In connection with this exchange the Company and the Investor also entered into a Leak-Out Agreement whereby the Investor agreed to limit sale volume for a period of time. In compliance with the Purchase Agreement, the Company offered to exchange the Notes and Warrants held by the other Investors for Series D on substantially similar terms and conditions pursuant to one or more Exchange Agreements in substantially the form of the initial Exchange Agreement (“Exchange Agreements”) and one or more Leak-Out Agreements in substantially the form of the initial Leak-Out Agreement (“Leak-Out Agreements”).

 

On July 22, 2020, the Company entered an Exchange Agreement (the “Puritan Exchange Agreement”) with another Investor, Puritan Partners LLC (“Puritan”) to exchange outstanding Notes and Warrants for Series D. Pursuant to the Puritan Exchange Agreement, Puritan exchanged Notes with an aggregate remaining principal amount outstanding of $265,843.79 and Warrants to purchase 194,445,417 shares of Common Stock for 221,269 shares of Series D (the “Exchange”).

 

In connection with the Exchange, the Company and Puritan entered into a Leak-Out Agreement, dated as of July 22, 2020 (the “Puritan Leak-Out Agreement”), whereby Puritan agreed that, until the earliest to occur of (a) 120 days from July 22, 2020, (b) the Common Stock trading at an average reported volume of at least 100,000,001 shares for three consecutive trading days, (c) the price per share of the Common Stock exceeding $0.10 in a transaction, (d) the time of release (whether by termination of an applicable leak-out agreement or otherwise), in whole or in part, of any leak-out agreement with any other holder of securities, or (e) any breach by the Company of any term of the Puritan Leak-Out Agreement that is not cured within five trading days following delivery of written notice of such breach by Puritan to the Company, neither Puritan, nor any of its Affiliates (as defined in the Puritan Leak-Out Agreement), collectively, shall sell, on any trading day, more than 10% of the Common Stock sold on such trading day.

 

A copy of the form of Exchange Agreement is attached as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The above description is qualified by reference to the complete text of the form of Exchange Agreement. A copy of the form of Leak-Out Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The above description is qualified by reference to the complete text of the form of Leak-Out Agreement.

 

In connection with the Exchange, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) created the Series D pursuant to the authority vested in the Board 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. The Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation explicitly authorize the Board 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.

 

 
 

 

On July 20, 2020, the Board filed the Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series D Preferred Stock (the “Series D COD”) with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada designating 1,250,000 shares of preferred stock as Series D. The Series D does not have the right to vote. The Series D has a stated value of $6.00 per share (the “Stated Value”). Subject only to the liquidation rights of the holders of Series B Preferred Stock that is currently issued and outstanding, upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the business of the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary, the Series D is entitled to receive an amount per share equal to the Stated Value and then receive a pro-rata portion of the remaining assets available for distribution to the holders of Common Stock on an as-converted to Common Stock basis. Until July 20, 2021, the holders of Series D have the right to participate, pro rata, in each subsequent financing in an amount up to 25% of the total proceeds of such financing on the same terms, conditions and price otherwise available in such subsequent financing.

Subject to a beneficial ownership limitation and customary adjustments for stock dividends and stock splits, each share of Series D is convertible into 1,000 shares of Common Stock. A holder of Series D may not convert any shares of Series D into Common Stock if the holder (together with the holder’s affiliates and any persons acting as a group together with the holder or any of the holder’s affiliates) would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the conversion, as such percentage ownership is determined in accordance with the terms of the Series D COD. However, upon notice from the holder to the Company, the holder may decrease or increase the beneficial ownership limitation, which may not exceed 9.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the exercise, as such percentage ownership is determined in accordance with the terms of the Series D COD, provided that any such increase or decrease in the beneficial ownership limitation will not take effect until 61 days following notice to the Company.

Approval of at least a majority of the outstanding Series D is required to: (a) amend or repeal any provision of, or add any provision to, the Company’s Articles of Incorporation or bylaws, or file any Certificate of Designation (however such document is named) or articles of amendment to create any class or any series of preferred stock, if such action would adversely alter or change in any respect the preferences, rights, privileges or powers, or restrictions provided for the benefit, of the Series D, regardless of whether any such action shall be by means of amendment to the Articles of Incorporation or bylaws or by merger, consolidation or otherwise or filing any Certificate of Designation, it being understood that the creation of a new security having rights, preferences or privileges senior to or on parity with the Series D in a future financing will not constitute an amendment, addition, alteration, filing, waiver or repeal for these purposes; (b) increase or decrease (other than by conversion) the authorized number of Series D; (c) issue any Series D, other than to the Investors; or (d) without limiting any provision hereunder, whether or not prohibited by the terms of the Series D, circumvent a right of the Series D.

The description of the Series D and the Series D COD are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such waiver, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1.
