The Company shall issue a total of 3,750,000 restricted shares of common stock of the Company (the “Shares”) at a price of $0.80 per share as the payment for the above mentioned consultant fee to the Consultant. The parties agree that no shares will be issued until the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) and NASDAQ approve the issuance of the Shares. The Company agrees to issue the Shares in the name of the Consultant within 10 days after approval from the Board and NASDAQ, among which 1,500,000 shares should be released to the Consultant immediately upon issuance, 1,125,000 shares will be held by the Company and released to the Consultant on January 25, 2021 if this Agreement has not been terminated and there has been no breach of Agreement by the Consultant at such time, and the last 1,125,000 shares will be held by the Company and released to the Consultant on January 25,2022 if this Agreement has not been terminated and there has been no breach of the Agreement by the Consultant at such time. If the second and/or third release of the shares mentioned above does not occur, such shares shall be returned to the Company as treasury shares. If NASDAQ does not approve the issuance of the Shares, the parties agree to negotiate other payment methods and, if no agreement can be reached by the parties, this Agreement shall be terminated immediately. The shares contemplated in the Agreement will be issued pursuant to the exemption from registration provided by Regulation S promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
