On April 30, 2018, the Reporting Person purchased 500 shares of Series A Preferred Stock. The Reporting Person acquired the Securities to which this Schedule 13D relates for investment purposes in the ordinary course of business.

 

On December 10, 2020, One World Cannabis Ltd. (“OWC-Israel”), an Israeli subsidiary of the Issuer, filed a petition under the Insolvency and Rehabilitation Law, 2018 in the Israeli Haifa District Court. On December 13, 2020, Pursuant to Section 5(g) of the Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock of OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp., the Reporting Person waived the 4.99% limitation on beneficial ownership provided for therein. The notice was effective on February 16, 2021, sixty-one calendar days after the date of such notice.

The Reporting Person currently holds no shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock. The Reporting person currently holds 366 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, which would be convertible into 821,367,190,479 shares of Common Stock, representing 99.9% of the voting control of the Issuer.

 

Due to the bankruptcy filing of OWC-Israel, the Issuer’s failure to file its public reports, and other actions by the Issuer as reported in its recent Current Reports on Form 8-K, the Reporting Person believes that the board of directors of the Issuer has failed to maximize stockholder value. The Reporting Person intends to vote to remove and replace the board of directors of the Issuer with competent professional directors. Thereafter, the Reporting Person intends to resume its status as a passive investor.

 

The Reporting Person may consider, explore and/or develop plans and/or make proposals (whether preliminary or firm) with respect to, among other things, potential changes in, the Issuer's operations, management, organizational documents, the composition of the board of directors of the Issuer, ownership, capital or corporate structure, dividend policy, and strategy and plans of the Issuer, as well as a potential strategic review or sale process involving the Issuer or certain of the Issuer's businesses or assets, including transactions in which the Reporting Persons may seek to participate and potentially engage in. The Reporting Person may communicate with the Issuer's management and board about a broad range of operational and strategic matters (including the matters set forth above) and to communicate with other shareholders or third parties, including potential acquirers, service providers and financing sources regarding the foregoing. The Reporting Person may exchange information with any such persons pursuant to appropriate confidentiality or similar agreements which may include customary standstill provisions. They may also take steps to explore and prepare for various plans and actions, and propose transactions, before forming an intention to engage in such plans or actions or proceed with such transactions.

 

The Reporting Person intends to review its investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis and depending upon various factors, including without limitation, the Issuer's financial position and strategic direction, the outcome of any discussions referenced above, overall market conditions, other available investment opportunities, and the availability of securities of the Issuer at prices that would make the purchase or sale of such securities desirable, the Reporting Persons may endeavor (i) to increase or decrease their position in the Issuer through, among other things, the purchase or sale of Common Stock and/or other equity, debt, derivative securities or other instruments that are convertible into Common Stock, or are based upon or relate to the value of the Common Stock or the Issuer (collectively, the "Securities") on the open market or in private transactions, including through a trading plan created under Rule 10b5-1(c) or otherwise, on such terms and at such times as the Reporting Persons may deem advisable and/or (ii) to enter into transactions that increase or hedge its economic exposure to the Common Stock or other Securities without affecting their beneficial ownership of the shares of Common Stock or other Securities. In addition, the Reporting Persons may, at any time and from time to time, (i) review or reconsider its position and/or change its purpose and/or formulate plans or proposals with respect thereto and (ii) propose or consider one or more of the actions described in subparagraphs (a) - (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.

(a)       See rows (11) and (13) of the cover pages to this Schedule 13D for the aggregate number of and percentages of the shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Reporting Person.

ITEM 6.         CONTRACTS, ARRANGEMENTS, UNDERSTANDINGS OR RELATIONSHIPS WITH RESPECT TO SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER

 

On April 30, 2018, the Reporting Person entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with the Issuer. Under the terms and conditions of the Agreement, the Issuer sold and the Purchaser bought, (i) 500 shares of the Issuer’s new series of preferred stock designated as Series A Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Shares”), which were originally convertible into 37,500,000 shares of the Issuer’s common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (“Common Stock”), pursuant to the Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock of OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. (“Certificate of Designations”), and (ii) Warrants (the “Warrants”) representing the right to acquire 12,500,000 shares of Common Stock (each of which were subject to adjustment in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the Certificate of Designations and the Warrants) for an aggregate purchase price of $5,000,000.00.

 

The Certificate of Designations provides that the Issuer shall not affect the conversion of any of the Preferred Shares to the extent that after giving effect to such conversion, the Reporting Person and all other attribution parties would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion, which provision may be waived by written notice to the Issuer, which notice shall be effective sixty-one (61) calendar days after the date of such notice.

 

Holders of Preferred Stock and Common Stock vote on all matters requiring a vote of the shareholders of the Issuer as a single class, on an as converted basis, subject to the maximum percentage limitation if applicable.

 

The Certificate of Designations provides that the Triggering Event Conversion Price means an amount equal to 75% of the average of the three lowest closing prices of the Common Stock during the relevant measurement period, minus $0.01 per share, which conversion price is currently equal to the Common Stock’s $0.00001 par value per share.

 

The terms of each the Preferred Stock and Warrants provide for anti-dilution protection for issuances of shares of Common Stock at a price per share less than a price equal to the conversion price or exercise price, as applicable and, that in the event of a “fundamental transaction” (as described in the Warrants), the Reporting Person will have the right to receive the value of the Warrant as determined in accordance with the Black Scholes option pricing model.

 

In connection with the Agreement, the Issuer and Reporting Person entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), pursuant to which the Issuer agreed to, among other things, use its commercially reasonable best efforts to prepare and file with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission a registration statement covering the shares of Common Stock underlying the Preferred Stock and the Warrants.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the Agreement, the Warrants and the Registration Rights Agreement are only summaries, do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Agreement, Registration Rights Agreement and Warrants. The Form of Certificate of Designation, Warrant, Registration Rights Agreement and form of the Agreement are attached hereto as Exhibits 3.1, 4.1, 4.2 and 10.1 and are incorporated by reference herein.

 

On June 29, 2020, the Reporting Person made a secured non-convertible loan of $100,000.00 to OWC-Israel, which was guaranteed by the Issuer and secured by all assets of the Issuer. On August 20, 2020, the Reporting Person loaned an additional $100,000.00 on the same terms. Both loans are in default.

 

Except as described above in this Item 6, there are no contracts, arrangements, understandings or relationship among the Reporting Persons or between the Reporting Persons and any other person with respect to the Securities of the Issuer.
