In connection with the foregoing, the Company acknowledges and agrees that: it will retain the ultimate responsibility for developing and maintaining any relationships which may arise from the introductions provided by the Consultant from the introduction.|
Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by the parties, the Consultant shall not expend more than a total of two hundred (200) hours (the “Performance Threshold Amount”) on providing the Services during the term of this Agreement. The Consultant shall: (i) be solely responsible for maintaining a record of all hours expended providing the Services hereunder (the aggregate number of hours expended by the Consultant performing the Services at any time shall be referred to herein as the “Service Hours”); and (ii) provide reasonable notice to the Company if and when the Service Hours approach the Performance Threshold Amount.
The Company shall initially be required to make payments in US Dollars as follows:
Upon execution of this agreement, the company will pay an initial cash payment equal to USD $35,000 (Thirty Five Thousand Dollars).
Additionally, on June 23, 2017 USD $35,000 and the balance owed equal to $152,000 will be payable on or before July 23, 2017 for a total amount paid for Cost Retainer and Compensation equal to $222,000.
The initial Cost Retainer will be One Hundred and Eighty Five Thousand dollars ($185,000) and thereafter the Company may, in its sole discretion, transfer to the Consultant (via a bank account designated by the Consultant) an amount of up to $500,000) (such transferred amount being referred to herein as the “Cost Retainer”) for the primary purpose of providing the Consultant with the funds necessary to pay Vendors and perform certain Services. Except as provided in Article 8, the Consultant shall only be permitted to direct funds pursuant to Appendix “A” from the Cost Retainer or otherwise with electronic consent from the Company.
The Company agrees to pay the Consultant the following amounts as compensation (collectively, the “Compensation”) for the provision of the Services:
|(a)||Cash in the aggregate amount of Thirty Seven Thousand Dollars ($37,000) (the “Initial Contract Amount”) payable to the Consultant (payment being referred to herein as an “Installment Payment”). In the event that this Agreement is terminated for any reason (including, but not limited to, termination by the Company for any violation or alleged violation of this Agreement by the Consultant), the Company agrees to pay to the Consultant, within three (3) business days of such termination, one lump sum payment in the amount which is equal to the Contract Amount less the aggregate of all Installment Payments made by the Company to the Consultant up to the date of such termination. The Company further acknowledges and agrees that: (i) in order to provide the Services effectively, the Consultant must incur significant upfront costs and expenses; and (ii) the Contract Amount is intended to, among other things, reimburse the Consultant for such upfront costs and expenses notwithstanding the fact that the Contract Amount is payable to the Consultant over the term of this Agreement.

Any remaining balance due under the Cost Retainer and Cash Compensation shall immediately be due and owing and there shall be no right of setoff of any kind with the Investment Shares.
The Securities have been, or will be, duly and validly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and non assessable and on the date of issuance of the Shares upon payment therefore, and if registered pursuant to the Securities Act and resold pursuant to an effective registration statement will be free trading and unrestricted, free and clear of all liens.
The Company has filed all reports required to be filed by it under the Exchange Act, including pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) thereof, for the twelve months preceding the date hereof (or such shorter period as the Company was required by law to file such reports) (the foregoing materials, as finally amended being collectively referred to herein as the “SEC Reports”) on a timely basis or has timely filed a valid extension of such time of filing and has filed any such SEC Reports prior to the expiration of any such extension. As of their respective dates, the SEC Reports, as amended, complied in all material respects with the requirements of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission promulgated thereunder, and none of the SEC Reports, when filed, contained any untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, except to the extent that such SEC Reports may have been subsequently amended or supplemented to correct such misstatement or omission or to correct information relating to the Company’s internal controls. The SEC Reports (including any amendments thereto or Reports filed after the date hereof) and their exhibits are incorporated by reference herein.
The Company and the Consultant agree that the Securities may only be disposed of in compliance with state and federal securities laws. In connection with any transfer of the Securities other than pursuant to an effective registration statement, to the Company, to an affiliate of a Consultant or in connection with a pledge the Company may require the transferor thereof to provide to the Company with an opinion of counsel selected by the transferor, the form and substance of which opinion shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Company, to the effect that such transfer does not require registration of such transferred Shares under the Securities Act. As a condition of transfer, any such transferee shall agree in writing to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.
Certificates evidencing the Shares will contain substantially the following legend, until such time as such securities are sold pursuant to an exemption from the Securities Act registration requirements:
THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION OR THE SECURITIES COMMISSION OF ANY STATE IN RELIANCE UPON AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT’), AND, ACCORDINGLY, MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM, OR IN A TRANSACTION NOT SUBJECT TO, THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS AS EVIDENCED BY A LEGAL OPINION OF COUNSEL TO THE TRANSFEROR TO SUCH EFFECT, THE SUBSTANCE OF WHICH SHALL BE REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE TO THE COMPANY.
