Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

 

As disclosed in the registrant’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 11, 2022 (the “March 11 Current Report”), on March 8, 2022, the registrant, Good Hemp, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a Plan and Agreement of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Petro X Solutions, Inc., a Wyoming corporation (“PXS”), pursuant to which a wholly-owned subsidiary (the “Merger Sub”) of the Company would merge (the “PXS Merger”) with and into PXS, with PXS becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company as a result of the Merger.

 

On May 11, 2022, the parties closed the Merger Agreement and (i) filed Articles of Merger merging the Merger Sub with and into PXS; (ii) each share of PXS was converted into the right to receive shares of Company common stock on a 10-for-1 basis, with PXS’s outstanding 10,000,000 shares of common stock pre-merger converted into the right to receive 100,000,000 shares of Company common stock in the merger; (iii) the Company issued 20,000,000 shares of common stock to PXS’s pre-merger shareholders, with an additional 80,000,000 shares issuable to the pre-merger shareholders of PXS in the future; and (iv) PXS became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

The description of the common stock issuances to PXS’s pre-merger shareholders set forth in Item 2.01 above is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02. The issuances of common stock were made in reliance on an exemption from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Rule 506(b) of Regulation D promulgated thereunder, as there was no general solicitation, the issuances did not involve a public offering, and there were only fifteen PXS pre-merger shareholders, each of whom were accredited or financially sophisticated.

 

Item 5.01. Changes in Control of Registrant.

 

The description of the common stock issuances to PXS’s pre-merger shareholders set forth in Item 2.01 above is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.01. These issuances constituted a change of control as William Alessi, Chris Chumas, and Spire Holdings, LLC, who owned over 50% of the Company’s common stock prior to the PXS Merger, no longer control the Company after effecting the issuances described above. No person(s) control a majority of the Company’s voting securities after effecting those issuances.

 

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