The business combination agreements with the aforementioned entities are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such documents attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1 through 10.11, respectively, and incorporated herein by reference.

 

The material terms of each acquisition are as follows:

 

Education Angels. Education Angels delivers home educators and childcare for 0-5 year old’s with creative thinking and play modules.

 

The Share Purchase Agreement was signed on October 22, 2020 between Genius Group and the owners of Education Angels, David Raymond Hitchins and Angela Stead, for the purchase of 100% of the shares in Education Angels.

 

The purchase price was calculated as 2x the annual revenue in 2019 or 2020 (whichever is higher) of Education Angels, with a minimum purchase price of NZ$3 million (approximately US$2 million).

 

The payment was 100% in shares of Genius Group.

 

The share purchase included all rights, title, interest and benefits appertaining to the company, including all contracts, intellectual property, goodwill and ongoing operations, all assets and liabilities on the balance sheet as at the date of the acquisition, less any director’s loans or shareholder’s loans.

 

The sellers agreed not to sell any shares in Genius Group for at least 6 months from closing in the case of David Hitchins and 12 months in the case of Angie Stead.

 

Both parties have provided various representations, warranties and indemnifications as part of the agreement.

 

An extending letter was signed on September 30, 2021 to extend the terms of the agreement to December 31, 2021.

 

An extending letter was signed on December 17, 2021 to extend the terms of the agreement to March 31, 2022.

Property Investors Network. PIN is a UK-based property networking organization.

 

The Share Purchase Agreement was signed on November 30, 2020, between Genius Group and the owner of PIN, Simon Zutshi on behalf of Property Mastermind International Pte Ltd (MPL), for the purchase of 100% of the shares in Property Investors Network Ltd and Mastermind Principles Ltd.

 

The purchase price was calculated as 1x the annual revenue in 2019 or 2020 (whichever was higher) of the two companies in the agreement.

 

The payment was 10% in cash and 90% in Genius Group ordinary shares, with the shares paid on closing and the cash paid within 7 days of closing.

The parties agreed to clear all director’s loans and shareholder’s loans from the balance sheets of the two companies first by Genius Group paying £1.5 million (US$2.0 million) to MPL on behalf of the seller in order to pay off part of the outstanding loans, and second by the seller repaying any remaining unpaid loans within three years of the closing date.

The Company is also in the process of trying to close two additional acquisitions: University of Antelope Valley and E-Square.

 

University of Antelope Valley. UAV is a California-based, WASC accredited, U.S. university issuing degrees on campus and on-line. Per the terms of the agreement, Genius Group has already paid UAV US$7 million in cash and 1 million Genius Group ordinary shares (valued at US$6 million) as closing consideration. The terms of this acquisition were amended on April 18, 2022 to reflect that (i) the transaction will not close until the full cash amount of US$24 million is paid by Genius Group to UAV and (ii) the Genius Group ordinary shares issued are subject to a lock-up.

 

E-Square. E-Square is a full campus with primary, secondary and college education for students in entrepreneurship. The terms of the acquisition were amended on April 19, 2022 to reflect that the closing is conditioned upon the approval of the South African Reserve Bank.
