Item 8.01 Other Events

 

Non-Binding Letter of Intent

 

On June 28, 2020, the company entered into a Non-binding Letter of Intent for a Contribution Exchange Agreement with Steep Hill, Inc. In the proposed transaction, Steep Hill will provide certain laboratory assets and cash to C3 Labs in exchange for minority ownership interest of C3 Labs. C3 Labs will assume from Steep Hill certain liabilities, including the leased property at 2448 Sixth St. Berkeley, CA. The exchange agreement excludes transfer of Steep Hill’s licensing business and intellectual property. The transaction is subject to the conditions set forth in a proposed Agreement.

 

On July 1, 2020 we learned that Steep Hill’s former CEO, J Michaele Keller, had made this potential transaction public via press release. This breach of confidentiality was aided by his attorneys, Pryor Cashman LLP. EVIO regards this as a serious breach and is reviewing any potential implications on the proposed transaction and possible causes of action against Pryor Cashman.
