Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On January 3, 2020, Canbiola, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “FirstFire Agreement”) with FirstFire Global Opportunities Fund, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“FirstFire”). Pursuant to the terms of the FirstFire Agreement, FirstFire purchased a Convertible Promissory Note in the aggregate principal amount of $550,000.00 (the “Note”) from the Company in consideration for $500,000.00 from First Fire.


The Note has an interest rate of 12% per annum and matures six (6) months after its issuance date. The Note is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”) at any time at the lower of (i) $0.02 per share or (ii) 80% of closing price of the Common Stock on the date of conversion per share (“Conversion Date Price”). Furthermore, at any time after the Company is in default under the Note, the conversion price will be adjusted to the lower of (i) Conversion Date Price (ii) $0.005m or (iii) 75% of the lowest closing price of the Common Stock during the 20 consecutive trading day period immediately prior to the date of conversion per share. The conversion price and shares to be issued will be adjusted following certain events such as merger or reorganization of the Company, dividend, dilutive issuances and stock splits.


The Note may be prepaid; provided, the Company pays all accrued interest and fees and an amount equal to 110% of outstanding principal.


The Note and FirstFire Agreement include a number of anti-dilution protections for FirstFire, including but not limited to, limitations on future variable rate transactions, prohibitions of certain types issuances of securities, reduction of the conversion price and amendment to terms of Note if the Company issues certain securities on better terms than those contained in the Note and adjustment to the number of shares to be received upon the happening of certain events. In addition, upon an event of default under the Note, FirstFire will be entitled to a reduced conversion price, default interest in the maximum permitted by law, and to accelerate the Note with principal to be paid equal to 105% of the outstanding principal.


In connection with funding of the Note, the Company agreed to issue (i) 6,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock as a commitment fee (the “Commitment Shares”) and (ii) 29,852,143 shares of the Company’s common stock to be returned to the Company’s treasury only if the Company repays the Note within 180 days following the issuance date of the Note (the “Returnable Shares”). In addition, the Company is required to reserve shares sufficient to convert the Note and has executed an irrevocable letter agreement with its transfer agent providing for the reservation of shares and issuance to FirstFire. The Company is subject to penalties for failure to timely deliver shares to FirstFire following a conversion request.


The Note is secured by a security agreement encumbering all assets of the Company and ranks senior to all other debt, subject to a carve out for certain future debt that may be incurred by the Company.


The Note and FirstFire Agreement contain other covenants and restrictions common with this type of debt transaction.


The transactions contemplated by the FirstFire Agreement closed on January 6, 2020.
