Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


Effective July 10, 2019, Canbiola, Inc. (the “Company” or “CANB”) entered into an Employee Services Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Johnny J. Mack PhD (“Mack”), pursuant to which Mack agreed to serve as the Company’s interim Chief Operating Officer (“Interim COO”). In consideration for Mack’s services, Mack will (i) receive a base salary of $7,500 per month, subject to increase after each yearly anniversary of the Agreement (the “Base Salary”), (ii) be eligible to receive annual cash or stock bonuses, as determined by the Company’s compensation committee, (iii) be entitled to vacation time and paid days for illness in accordance with the Company’s Employee Handbook policies, and (iv) receive a one-time issuance of 3,500,000 common shares of the Company. The Company also agreed to hold harmless and indemnify Mack as authorized or permitted by law and the Company’s governing documents, as the same may be amended from time to time, except for acts constituting negligence or willful misconduct by Mack.


The Agreement has an initial term of 90 days and shall renew for additional 90-day terms upon mutual consent of the parties (each, a “Term”), unless otherwise terminated with 30 days prior written notice. If the Agreement is terminated by the Company without “Cause,” or by Employee for “Good Reason,” then: (i) the Company shall continue to pay Mack the Base Salary through the longer of the end of the Term over the course of the then remaining Term in accordance with the Company’s payroll and payment practices plus an amount equal to the premiums charged by the Company to maintain COBRA benefits continuation coverage for Mack and his eligible dependents to the extent such coverage is then in place. A termination of the Agreement by reason of a merger or acquisition is considered the same as a termination by the Company without Cause or by Employee for Good Reason.


Upon termination of Mack’s employment prior to the expiration of the Term by reason of Mack’s death, the Company shall pay Mack’s designated beneficiary or beneficiaries, within 30 days of his death, in a lump sum in cash equal to (i) three months of Mack’s Base Salary and pro-rated incentive bonus, if any, from the date of Mack’s death, and (ii) any accrued obligations or benefits owed the Mack for that same period of time. If, as a result of Mack’s incapacity due to physical or mental illness (“Disability”), Mack is absent from the full-time performance of his duties with the Company for a period of three consecutive months and, within 30 days after written notice is provided to Mack by the Company, Mack’s employment under the Agreement may be terminated by the Company for Disability and Mack or his designee will be paid in the same manner as in termination by his death.


The Agreement otherwise contains standard terms and conditions. The foregoing discussion is for summary purposes only and is qualified in its entirety by the actual terms of the Agreement, which is included herewith as an Exhibit.


Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.


See Item 1.01 for discussion regarding Mack’s appointment as Interim COO pursuant to the Agreement. Additionally, on July 10, 2019, the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) appointed Mack as a director of the Company to fill a vacancy on the Board. Mack also serves on the Company’s Corporate Advisory Board.
