Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Agreement

 

On November 21, 2023, Yoshiharu Global Co. (the “Company”) entered into an asset purchase agreement (the “Asset Agreement”) with Mr. Jiyuck Hwang, a restaurant operator (“Seller”) to acquire certain Las Vegas restaurant assets held by Jjanga LLC, HJH LLC and Ramen Aku LLC for an aggregate $3.6 million. Pursuant to the Asset Agreement, the Company will purchase all or substantially all of the assets of the following three restaurant entities owned by the Seller: Jjanga, HJH and Aku. The Company has agreed to pay the Seller $1,800,000 in cash, a promissory note in the principal amount of $600,000 (the “Promissory Note”) and a convertible note having a principal amount of $1,200,000 which shall be convertible into the Company’s Class A common stock in accordance with the terms therein (the “Convertible Note”). Additionally, the Company has entered into an employment agreement with the Seller whereby the Seller will serve as the Managing Director of each restaurant upon consummation of the Agreement (the “Employment Agreement”). The Asset Agreement also contains customary representations, warranties, indemnification provisions and closing conditions including the required audit of target assets in accordance with applicable Securities & Exchange Commission regulations.

 

The principal sum of the Promissory Note shall be repaid by the Company to the Seller in two equal installments due November 30, 2024 and November 30, 2025. Each annual installment shall be in the amount of $300,000. The Promissory Note specifies that payments shall be made without the addition of interest. If the Company fails to make any payments as required, the Promissory Note states that the entire balance shall become immediately due and payable.

 

The Convertible Note states that the principal sum shall accrue interest at a rate of 0.5% per annum and specifies that the maturity date is one year from the closing date. The terms of the Convertible Note provide that upon the maturity date, the Seller has the right to convert any outstanding and unpaid portion of the Convertible Note into the Class A Common stock of the Company. If the Seller chooses to exercise this right, the conversion price will be 150% of the average of the highest and lowest prices of the Company’s stock during the five business days immediately after the closing date of the Asset Agreement (the “Conversion Price Formula”). If the closing stock price on the conversion date is lower than the price produced via the Conversion Price Formula, the Seller shall have the option to choose the cash receipt of any outstanding and unpaid portion of the Convertible Note or convert any outstanding and unpaid portion of the Convertible Note into the Company’s stock using the same Conversion Price Formula. If the stock price on the conversion date is higher than the price produced by the Conversion Price Formula, the Seller shall convert any outstanding and unpaid portion of the Convertible Note into the Company’s stock. Upon choosing to convert, the Seller must provide written notice to the Company indicating the portion of the Convertible Note to be converted.

 

The Employment Agreement sets out Mr. Hwang’s position, duties, compensation, employment term and termination rights. Mr. Hwang will serve as Managing Director of Yoshiharu LV which will manage the new Las Vegas restaurants. He will be paid an annual base salary of $180,000 with a performance bonus schedule based on how much money in excess of the target EBITDA Yoshiharu LV achieves. Under this performance incentive program, Mr. Hwang is eligible for Restricted Stock Units worth up to $100,0000. The Employment Agreement specifies that he will be employed for an initial term of 3 years, beginning immediately after the closing date of the Asset Agreement, subject to extension or early termination. The termination clause of the Employment Agreement provides that either party may terminate employment with or without cause upon 60 days written notice to the other party. If Mr. Hwang’s employment is terminated with or without cause, he is not entitled to receive a severance package.

 

The summaries provided herein of the Asset Agreement, Promissory Note, Convertible Note and the Employment Agreement are qualified in their entirety by reference to the whole of each instrument, which are filed as Exhibits to this Current Report.
