Item 1.01. Entry Into A Material Definitive Agreement

 

See Item 2.01.

 

Item  2.01 – Acquisition Or Disposition Of Assets.

 

On March 3, 2017, the Company entered into an asset sale and lease agreement (sale/leaseback transaction, the “Asset Sale and Lease Agreement”) with General American Capital Partners (“GACP”), whereby the Company sold certain lab, medical and other equipment relating to the cell banking business for $400,000 and leased back the sold equipment over a three year term.  In addition, the Company also entered into an asset purchase agreement of intellectual property with GACP whereby the Company agreed to sell all of the Company’s worldwide rights, title or interest in certain intellectual and other property (as defined) associated with the cell banking business and   the Company entered into a  customer purchase agreement with GACP, whereby the Company agreed to sell, the first 5,000 customers of the cell banking business[ after the effective date of the Asset Sale and Lease Agreement with rights to purchase additional customers.

 

On May 9, 2018, the U.S. Department of Justice filed an injunctive action, specifically United States of America v. U.S. Stem Clinic, LLC, U.S. Stem Cell, Inc., Kristin C. Comella, and Theodore Gradel. On June 3, 2019, the Court entered an order granting Summary Judgment for the government. The Court further ordered that the defendants (including the Company) ‘not sell, provide or otherwise engage in any SVF therapy or any other activities to be regulated by the FDA as explained in the Court’s Order on the Parties’ Motions for Summary Judgment.” (the “Court Order”).

 

As a consequence of the Court Order, the Company resolved to divest itself of certain equipment and other assets (the “Equipment Assets”) used in connection with the Company’s human tissue banking business, but consistent however with the requirements of the Court Order, and to adjust the business plan and operations to accommodate this potential divesture. To facilitate the above, the Company entered into the following agreements, which are not yet effective, as discussed below:

 

 

Termination and Release Agreement by and between GACP, the Company, and Michael Tomas and Kristin Comella dated September 24, 2019 (terminating the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Agreement between U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. and GACP Stem Cell Bank LLC., dated March 3, 2017).

 

Letter Agreement on Stem Cell Processing and Storage by and between the Company and American Cell Technology, LLC, dated September 24, 2019.

 

The foregoing agreements are qualified in their entirety by reference to such documents, which are attached as Exhibits hereto.

 

The FDA must be provided with fifteen days’ prior notice of the contemplated transactions, pursuant to the Court Order. Such notice has been sent.

 

Along with diversifying the portfolio of products distributed by the Company, including equipment and biologics, it is the intention of the Company to both continue to adhere to the Court Order as well as re -establish its good standing with the Agency (FDA). These points are not mutually exclusive nor negotiable and we believe that there are still  business and patient goodness opportunities while still abiding by all legal requirements  As a result, the Company shall be continuing with the development of  US Stem Cell Training, Inc. , an operating division of our company, that  is a content developer of regenerative medicine/cell therapy informational and training materials for physicians and patients and complies with both requirements--as well as Vet biologics, an operating division of our company, that  is a veterinary regenerative medicine company committed to providing veterinarians with the ability to deliver the highest quality regenerative medicine therapies to dogs, cats and horses. In addition, our company is transitioning the current clinics to a more diversified regenerative medicine platform, while complying with recent court rulings. While not providing legal advice,  the company may also engage in managing third-party clinics to ensure they too abide by recent regulatory requirements
