Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On December 15, 2021, Logiq, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into various agreements (discussed in further detail below) with Lovarra, a Nevada corporation (“Lovarra”) and public reporting subsidiary of the Company, pursuant to which the Company has agreed to transfer its AppLogiq business to Lovarra on or before December 31, 2021, subject to customary conditions and approvals and completion of requisite financial statement audits (the “Separation”). Lovarra is a fully reporting U.S. public company, which is approximately 78.5% owned by the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary GoLogiq LLC (“GoLogiq”). In connection with the Separation, the Company intends to distribute, on a pro rata basis, 100% of the Company’s ownership interests in Lovarra to the Company’s shareholders of record as of December 30, 2021 (the “Record Date”) (the “Distribution,” and collectively with the “Separation,” the “Spin Off”), which Distribution of said shares is expected to occur on or about June 30, 2022 (the “Distribution Date”).

 

A summary of the material terms of those agreements entered into by and between the Company and Lovarra on December 15, 2021 in connection with the Spin Off is set forth below.

 

Master Distribution Agreement and Separation Agreement

 

The Company and Lovarra entered into a Master Distribution Agreement and Separation Agreement, which set forth the terms of the Separation and the subsequent Distribution. Pursuant to these agreements, the Company will assign, transfer, convey and deliver (or cause one or more of its subsidiaries to do so) its AppLogiq business and all of the AppLogiq assets to Lovarra in exchange for the assumption by Lovarra of the liabilities of AppLogiq and the issuance of shares of Lovarra to the Company which Lova shares will then be distributed to shareholders as of the Record Date as provided in the Distribution as part of the Spin Off.

 

The Shares of Lovarra will be distributed on the Distribution Date pursuant to a stock dividend to Company shareholders of record as of the Record Date in a dividend ratio of one Lovarra share for each one share of the Company held on the Record Date (the “Dividend Ratio”).

 

The Company will retain its DataLogiq business, as well as certain other excluded assets, as specified in the Separation and Master Distribution Agreements. As a result of the Spin Off, following the Distribution Date, Lovarra will be owned by the stockholders of the Company and will cease to be a subsidiary of the Company and the Company and Lovarra will operate as two separate public companies with the Company operating the DataLogiq business and Lovarra operating the AppLogiq business.

 

The Separation and Master Distribution Agreements do not include representations and warranties regarding any assets or liabilities transferred or assumed, any consents or approvals that may be required in connection with these transfers or assumptions, the value or freedom from any lien or other security interest of any assets transferred, the absence of any defenses relating to any claim of either party or the legal sufficiency of any conveyance documents. Except as expressly set forth in the separation and distribution agreement, all assets will be transferred on an “as is,” “where is” basis.

 

The Separation and Master Distribution Agreements govern each of the parties’ rights and obligations regarding the Spin Off. Prior to consummation of the Distribution, Lovarra shall deliver all of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock held by the Company to a distribution agent. On the Distribution Date, Lovarra will instruct the distribution agent to electronically deliver such shares of its common stock to the Company’s shareholders as of the Record Date based on the Dividend Ratio. As noted above, the Company currently expects that the Distribution will be consummated on or before the end of June 2022, subject to satisfaction of certain conditions and receipt of regulatory approvals.

Pursuant to the Separation Agreement and Master Distribution Agreements, each of the parties agreed to release the other and its affiliates, successors and assigns, and all persons that prior to the Spin Off have been the other’s shareholders, directors, officers, members, agents and employees, and their respective heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns, from any claims against any of them that arise out of or relate to events, circumstances or actions occurring or failing to occur or any conditions existing at or prior to the time of the distribution. These releases are subject to exceptions set forth in the respective separation and distribution agreements. In addition, each of the parties agreed to indemnify the other and each of the other’s past and present directors, officers and employees, and each of their successors and assigns, against certain liabilities incurred in connection with the Spin Off and the parties’ respective businesses. The amount of either parties’ indemnification obligations will be reduced by any insurance proceeds the party being indemnified receives.

 

Tax Sharing Agreement

 

In addition, the Company and Lovarra entered into a Tax Sharing Agreement, which agreement governs each of the parties’ respective rights, responsibilities and obligations with respect to taxes for any tax period ending on or before the Distribution Date, as well as tax periods beginning before and ending after the Distribution Date. Generally, (i) the Company will be liable for all pre-distribution U.S. federal income taxes, foreign income taxes and non-income taxes attributable to (x) the Company’s DataLogiq business and (y) at least one asset or activity that is part of the Company’s DataLogiq business and at least one asset or activity that is part of the AppLogiq business; and (ii) Lovarra will be liable for all pre-distribution U.S. federal income taxes, foreign income taxes and non-income taxes attributable solely to the AppLogiq business.

 

Transition Services Agreement

 

Last, the Company and Lovarra also entered into a Transition Services Agreement, pursuant to which the Company and Lovarra will provide and/or make available various administrative services and assets (each, a “Service,” and collectively, the “Services”) to each other during the transition period commencing on the closing of the Separation and ending on the earlier of (i) the date that one of the parties terminates the provision of any given Service pursuant to the agreement and (ii) the date agreed upon by the parties with respect to such Service, which is expected to be an approximately 13 month period. Services to be provided by the Company to Lovarra include, amongst other things, certain services related to finance, taxation, legal/compliance, SEC compliance, regulatory, risk, human resources, payroll, public relations, marketing and advertising, facilities and information technology. Services to be provided by Lovarra to the Company include, amongst other things, certain services related to finance, taxation, legal/compliance, SEC compliance, regulatory, risk and public relations. The full allocation of Services between the parties is set forth on Schedule 1 of the Transition Services Agreement.

 

In consideration for such services, the Company and Lovarra will each pay fees to the other for the services provided, and those fees will generally be in amounts intended to allow the party providing services to recover all of its direct and indirect costs incurred in providing those services.

 

The personnel performing services under the transition services agreement will be employees and/or independent contractors of the party providing the service and will not be under the direction or control of the party to whom the service is being provided. The transition services agreement also contains customary mutual indemnification provisions.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the Master Distribution Agreement, Separation Agreement, Transition Services Agreement and Tax Sharing Agreement do not purport to be complete, and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the complete text of the Master Distribution Agreement, Separation Agreement, Transition Services Agreement and Tax Sharing Agreement, copies of which are attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Current Report”) as Exhibits 2.1, 2.2, 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, and are incorporated by reference herein.
