NOTE 12 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

The following is a description of the transactions we have engaged in with our directors, director nominees and officers and beneficial owners of more than five percent of our voting securities and their affiliates:

 

On August 1, 2015, we entered into a consulting agreement with Muscle Longevity LLC, a company that has the same owner as Ultra Pro Sports, LLC, a then greater than 5% beneficial owner of our common stock. Under the terms of the agreement, Muscle Longevity LLC then agreed to provide introductions and referrals to new distribution channels for our products including, but not limited to, health and wellness centers and sports nutrition companies and to conduct industry research and advise us regarding distributors, markets, and sales opportunities for the Company’s products. As compensation for the services, Muscle Longevity LLC was paid a consulting fee of $16 per month. The agreement was terminated in October 2016.

 

On December 17, 2015, concurrent with the execution of the Purchase Agreement with RENS Technology Inc., the Company issued an unsecured promissory note in the principal amount of $575 (the “Note”) to Gan Ren, a related party of RENS Agriculture and the son of Ren Ren, one of our directors. The Note accrued interest at a rate of 8% per annum and matured (the “Maturity Date”) on December 17, 2016. On the Maturity Date, the Note and accrued interest of $46 were automatically converted into 225,864 shares of Common Stock at $2.75 per share.

 

On December 17, 2015, we entered into the Purchase Agreement with Rens Technology Inc. (the “Purchaser”), an entity which is controlled by Ren Ren, who is currently a director of the Company and its largest stockholder. For additional information refer to Note 1 – Strategic Investment Transaction. The Board agreed to issue Mr. Ren 18,182 shares of the Company’s common stock upon completion of the first tranche of the Financing for his services to the Company as a member of the Board. (See Note 13 - Legal Proceedings)

 

In January 2017, the Company entered into a sales agreement with RENS Agriculture for $116. As a result of the ongoing litigation, the Company recorded bad debt expense of $59 related to the receivable due from RENS Agriculture.
