Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On September 8, 2021, Whipshots LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company (“Whipshots”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Starco Brands, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into an Intellectual Property Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) effective August 24, 2021, with Penguins Fly, LLC, a Pennsylvania limited liability company (“Seller”).  The Agreement provides that Seller will sell to Buyer the trademarks “Whipshotz” and “Whipshots”, accompanying domain and social media handles of the same nomenclature, and certain intellectual property, documents, digital assets, customer data and other transferable rights under non-disclosure, non-compete, non-solicitation and confidentiality contracts benefiting the purchased intellectual property and documents (collectively, the “Acquired Assets”). The purchase price (“Purchase Price Payment”) for the Acquired Assets will be payable to Seller, over the course of seven years, based on a sliding scale percentage of gross revenues actually received by Buyer solely from Buyer’s sale of Whipshots/Whipshotz Products. The Purchase Price Payment shall be subject to a minimum amount in each contract year and a maximum aggregate amount.
The foregoing summary of the terms of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement, a copy of which (in redacted form subject to a confidential treatment request submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”)) is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Report and is incorporated herein by reference. Capitalized terms used in this Item 1.01 but not otherwise defined shall have the meaning given to such terms in the Agreement.
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Current Report on Form 8-K and Exhibit 10.1 hereto contains certain statements that are, or may be deemed to be, “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). All statements included in this Report, other than statements that relate solely to historical fact, are “forward-looking statements.” Such statements include, but are not limited to, any statement that may predict, forecast, indicate or imply future results, performance, achievements or events, or any statement that may relate to strategies, plans or objectives for, or potential results of, future operations, financial results, financial condition, business prospects, growth strategy or liquidity, and are based upon management’s current plans and beliefs or current estimates of future results or trends. Forward-looking statements can generally be identified by phrases such as “believes,” “expects,” “potential,” “continues,” “may,” “should,” “seeks,” “predicts,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “projects,” “estimates,” “plans,” “could,” “designed,” “should be” and other similar expressions that denote expectations of future or conditional events rather than statements of fact.
These forward-looking statements are subject to assumptions, risks and uncertainties that may change at any time, and readers are therefore cautioned that actual results could differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as expressly required by law. All forward-looking statements in this document are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement.
