Item 8.01  Other Events.

On July 27, 2020, Basanite, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing that it had entered into an Exclusive Supplier Agreement (the “Supplier Agreement”) on July 23, 2020 with MEP® Consulting Engineers, Inc. (“MEP®”), a construction engineering firm based in Miami, Florida.

Under the terms of the five-year Supplier Agreement, MEP® will exclusively utilize the Company to manufacture and supply basalt fiber reinforced polymer (“BFRP”) rebar products, including the Company’s BasaFlex™ and other proprietary products for a total contract value of $50,000,000 (the “Contract Value”).  MEP® is permitted to order and the Company is permitted to supply products that exceed the Contract Value during the term of the Supplier Agreement.  There is no guaranteed Contract Value.  

Under the terms of the Supplier Agreement, the Company will also exclusively manufacture Hurricane Bar®, a MEP®-designed BFRP rebar product, designed and engineered specifically for structural applications.  Additionally, the Company and MEP® will work together to design, develop and certify advanced, solutions based BFRP products for the construction industry during the term of the Supplier Agreement.

The Supplier Agreement contains a number of representation, warranties and covenants from the Company which, if the Company were to breach in a material respect and be unable to cure, might allow MEP® to terminate the Supplier Agreement for cause.  

The Company and MEP® are currently negotiating an agreement whereby MEP® would receive up to 5,000,000 shares of the Company common stock, par value $0.001, for meeting certain thresholds under the Supplier Agreement.  The final terms of this agreement will be disclosed on a Current Report on Form 8-K once and if consummated.  


The foregoing description of the Supplier Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Supplier Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is incorporated herein by reference.


The information set forth in the press release attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 is hereby furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), nor shall the information in such press release filed an exhibit herewith be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act.
