The Company has capitalized an additional $12,883 in legal fees associated with the purchases of the Edyza Common Stock. The Company measures this investment at cost, less any impairment changes resulting from observable price changes in orderly transactions for an identical or similar investment of the same issuer.




On January 24, 2020, the Company entered into a Membership Interest Redemption Agreement (the “Redemption Agreement”) with Total Grow Holdings LLC (d/b/a Total Grow Control, LLC) (“TGH”), whereby the Company agreed to sell the Company’s 24.4% membership interests in TGH back to TGH for total consideration of $370,000. As a result of TGH’s failure to perform its obligations under the Redemption Agreement, the Company initiated a lawsuit against TGH seeking damages (the “Lawsuit”), and subsequently fully impaired the remaining investment in TGH in June 2020.


On September 24, 2020, the Company and TGH entered into a Settlement Agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”), pursuant to which the parties agreed to settle all claims brought in the Lawsuit. Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, TGH agreed to pay the Company a total of $61,919 in six equal installments. TGH’s first payment was due by October 4, 2020. TGH also agreed to reimburse the Company for up to $25,000 of its attorney’s fees related to the Lawsuit and the Settlement Agreement. In consideration of the foregoing and subject to TGH satisfying its payment obligations, the Company agreed to release any and all claims related to the Lawsuit. The Settlement Agreement also provides for a mutual release between the parties.


On September 24, 2020, in connection with the Settlement Agreement, the Company also entered into an agreement (the “Pullar Agreement”) by and between the Company and George R. Pullar, a former director of the Company and the Company’s former chief financial officer and the current chief financial officer of TGH. Pursuant to the Pullar Agreement, in exchange for Mr. Pullar relinquishing all right, title and interest in and to 166,667 shares of the Company’s common stock, the Company agreed to (i) execute the Settlement Agreement, (ii) transfer, sell and assign to Mr. Pullar the Company’s 24.4% membership interest in TGH pursuant to the Settlement Agreement and (iii) issue Mr. Pullar a fully vested warrant, to purchase 66,667 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $6.00 per share which expires five years from the date of issuance. The Pullar Agreement also provides for a mutual release between the Company and Mr. Pullar.
