This Termination and Release Agreement (“Agreement”) is entered into as of this 30th day of November, 2020, by and between AB International Group Corp., a Nevada corporation (the “AB International”) and Crown Bridge Partners, LLC, a New York limited liability company (“Crown Bridge”).
WHEREAS, on or about January 8, 2020, AB International executed a Warrant to Purchase Common Stock of AB International Group Corp. in favor of Crown Bridge (the “January 8, 2020 Warrant”), pursuant to which AB International issued a warrant to purchase 4,860 shares of AB International at a strike price of $12.50 per share;
WHEREAS, on or about July 23, 2020, AB International executed a Warrant to Purchase Common Stock of AB International Group Corp. in favor of Crown Bridge (the “July 23, 2020 Warrant”), pursuant to which AB International issued a warrant to purchase 4,860 shares of AB International at a strike price of $12.50 per share;
WHEREAS, the January 8, 2020 Warrant and the July 23, 2020 Warrant are collectively referred to herein as the “Warrants” in this Agreement;
WHEREAS, the parties now desire to terminate and release each other and otherwise settle, compromise, dispose of, and release with finality, all claims, demands and causes of action, arising out of the Warrants;
NOW, THEREFORE, in exchange for $75,000 and other valuable consideration included in this Agreement, the adequacy of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:
|1.||Termination. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, as of the date hereof, the Parties hereby terminate the Warrants and any and all rights, obligations or duties created thereunder.|
|2.||Consideration. AB International agrees to pay to Crown Bridge the sum of US$75,000 (the “Cash Consideration”) on or before December 2, 2020 (the “Deadline”), to terminate the Warrants. If AB International fails to pay the Cash Consideration to Crown Bridge on or before the Deadline, then this Agreement shall automatically be null and void and of no further force or effect.|
|3.||Coordination. The parties agree to take whatever measures are necessary return to their respective positions as if the Warrants were never executed.|
|4.||Mutual Release. Except for the obligations set forth in this Agreement, each party hereby releases, remises, acquits and forever discharges any other party to this Agreement and their related or controlled entities, and all of their directors, officers, members, managers, partners, employees, servants, attorneys, assigns, heirs, successors, agents and representatives, past and present, and the respective successors, executors,|
administrators and any legal and personal representatives of each of the foregoing, and each of them, from any and all claims, demands, actions, causes of action, debts, liabilities, rights, contracts, obligations, duties, damages, costs, expenses or losses, of every kind and nature whatsoever, and by whomever asserted, whether at this time known or suspected, or unknown or unsuspected, anticipated or unanticipated, direct or indirect, fixed or contingent, or which may presently exist or which may hereafter arise or become known, in law or in equity, in the nature of an administrative proceeding or otherwise, for or by reason of any event, transaction, matter or cause whatsoever, with respect to, in connection with or arising out of the Warrants. For the avoidance of doubt, the aforementioned release shall not include the release of the amounts owed under the promissory note issued by AB International to Crown Bridge on January 8, 2020, in the original principal amount of $121,500.00.
It is understood by the parties that the facts with respect to which the foregoing release is given may hereafter turn out to be other than or different from the facts now known to a party or the parties or believed by a party or the parties to be true, and each party therefore expressly assumes the risk of the facts turning out to be so different and agrees that the foregoing release shall be in all respects effective and not subject to termination or rescission by any such difference in facts.

|8.||Cooperation. Each of the parties hereby agree to perform any and all acts and to execute and deliver any and all documents reasonably necessary to carry out the intent and the provisions of this Agreement.|
