Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On December 4, 2017, CLS Holdings USA, Inc. (the “Company,” “CLS” or “we”) and Alternative Solutions, LLC (“Alternative Solutions”) entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Acquisition Agreement”) for CLS to acquire (the “Oasis Acquisition”) the outstanding equity interests in three subsidiaries of Alternative Solutions (collectively, the “Oasis LLCs”). Pursuant to the Acquisition Agreement, CLS paid a non-refundable deposit of $250,000 upon signing, which was to be followed by an additional payment of $1,800,000 within 45 days (75 days if an extension fee of $200,000 is paid by CLS) for an initial 10% of each of the Oasis LLCs.
On January 16, 2018, CLS and Alternative Solutions entered into a First Amendment to the Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “First Amendment”) and extended the date upon which the $1,800,000 is to be paid to January 29, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. PST.
On January 25, 2018, CLS and Alternative Solutions entered into a Second Amendment to the Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Second Amendment”) and further extended the date upon which the $1,800,000 is to be paid to February 5, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. PST.
At that time, we will apply for state regulatory approval to own an interest in the Oasis LLCs. The 10% membership interest cannot be issued to us until we receive such approval. If we do not receive such regulatory approvals within ninety (90) days, we may terminate the Acquisition Agreement and receive the return of our $1,800,000 deposit. Within ninety (90) days after we make the additional payment of $1,800,000, we must make the payments to acquire the remaining 90% of the Oasis LLCs, which are equal to cash in the amount of $6,200,000, a $4.0 million promissory note due in December 2018 (the “Oasis Note”), and $6,000,000 in shares (the “Purchase Price Shares”) of our common stock (collectively, the “Closing Consideration”). At that time, we must apply for state regulatory approval to own the additional 90% in membership interests in the Oasis LLCs. Upon receipt of such approval, we will close on the purchase of the membership interests pursuant to the Acquisition Agreement.
The number of Purchase Price Shares shall equal $6,000,000 divided by the lower of $1.00 or the conversion price to receive one share of our common stock in our next equity offering that commences in 2018, multiplied by 80%. The Oasis Note will be secured by a first priority security interest over the assets of each of the Oasis LLCs and Alternative Solutions, including our 10% equity interest in the Oasis LLCs, and CLS shall deliver to Alternative Solutions a confession of judgment that will become effective in the event of any event of default under the Oasis Note.
Oasis currently owes certain amounts to a consultant known as 4Front Advisors, LLC. If we make any payments to this company post-closing, generally speaking, we will be entitled to deduct the present value of such payments from the principal amount due under the Oasis Note.
Assuming we close on the Acquisition Agreement, in May 2019, Alternative Solutions will be entitled to a $1,000,000 payment from us if the existing dispensary operated by an Oasis LLC has maintained an average revenue of $20,000 per day during the 2018 calendar year.
The sale, assignment, transfer, pledge or other disposition of any interest in the Oasis LLCs or Alternative Solutions is ineffective unless approved in advance by the state of Nevada and any municipality in which the Oasis LLC’s operation is licensed.
