Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

 

Item 4 is hereby amended to add the following:

 

On May 23, 2022, Mr. Eriksen, CCP, and ECM (collectively, the “Eriksen Group”) entered into a Standstill Agreement (the “Standstill Agreement”) with Nocopi Technologies, Inc. (“Nocopi”) related to the Eriksen Group’s nomination of Mr. Eriksen as a director of Nocopi and submission of a stockholder proposal related to the declassification of Nocopi’s board of directors (the “Board”), and related proxy statement and associated intention to solicit proxies (the “Eriksen Proxy Solicitation”). Under the Standstill Agreement, the Eriksen Group agreed to certain standstill provisions and to withdraw the Eriksen Proxy Solicitation, and Nocopi agreed to reimburse the Eriksen Group for some of the costs associated with the Eriksen Proxy Solicitation. The following is a summary of the terms of the Standstill Agreement, which does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Standstill Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 4 hereto.

 

 

 

Under the terms of the Standstill Agreement, the Eriksen Group has agreed to certain standstill restrictions for five years (the “Covered Period”), including restrictions on the Eriksen Group (i) soliciting or granting proxies to vote shares of Nocopi’s common stock, (ii) initiating stockholder proposals for consideration at any meeting of Nocopi’s stockholders, (iii) nominating directors for election to the Board, (iv) seeking the removal of any member of the Board and (v) submitting proposals for or offers of certain Extraordinary Transactions (as defined in the Standstill Agreement) involving Nocopi. In addition, to the extent the Eriksen Group owns any shares of Nocopi’s common stock during the Covered Period, the Eriksen Group has agreed to vote (or grant a proxy to vote) all of its shares of Nocopi’s common stock in favor of (A) the election of directors in accordance with the recommendation of the Board, (B) any stockholder proposals or advisory resolutions in accordance with the recommendation of the Board, and (C) the ratification of the appointment of Nocopi’s auditors.

 

Additionally, pursuant to the Standstill Agreement, the Eriksen Group agreed not to enter into any transaction or arrangement that would result in the members of the Eriksen Group and the Eriksen Affiliates (as defined in the Standstill Agreement), collectively, owning, controlling or otherwise having any beneficial or other ownership interest in more than five percent (5%) in the aggregate of the outstanding shares of Nocopi at such time without Nocopi’s express prior written approval. Nocopi has agreed to pay the Eriksen Group $75,000 for reimbursement of certain costs associated with the Eriksen Proxy Solicitation.

 

In addition, in connection with the Standstill Agreement, on May 23, 2022 the Eriksen Group entered into a Share Purchase Term Sheet with Michael S. Liebowitz and MSL 18 Holdings LLC (together, the “MSL 18 Holdings Group”), whereby the MSL18 Holdings Group agreed to purchase all shares of Nocopi beneficially owned by the Eriksen Group for $0.165 per share.
