(i) Various of the Acquired Assets, at the discretion of the Buyer, will also require a specific Assignment and Bill of Sale to convey assets to allow the recording of the conveyance at the federal, state, county, parish, and/or city level as listed on Schedule 1.1(i).
1.2. Assumption of Liabilities. The Buyer shall assume and become responsible for, those liabilities and obligations of the Sellers associated with the assigned contracts listed on Schedule 1.1(d) and such other liabilities identified on Exhibit B including exhibits thereto (the “Assumed Liabilities). The Buyer shall not assume or become responsible for, any other liabilities or obligations (whether known or unknown, whether absolute or contingent, whether liquidated or unliquidated, whether due or to become due, and whether claims with respect thereto are asserted before or after the date hereof) of the Sellers or related to the Acquired Assets.
1.3. Purchase Price. The price to be paid by the Buyer for the Acquired Assets (which the Parties agree have a fair market value of $3,500,000), shall be (A) $1,500,000 in cash consideration, to be paid directly to either the Seller or the Owner at the Owner’s discretion, less the outstanding principal and interest of any and all advances made from the Parent to the Sellers prior to the Effective Date directly or indirectly related to the Senior Secured Promissory Note executed between the Seller and White River Holdings Corp (the “Parent’s Subsidiary”) on June 18, 2020, and (B) $2,000,000 in restricted common stock of the Parent with the number of shares ___________1 as calculated by the closing share price on the date of the Agreement to be issued to the Parent’s transfer agent in the name of the Seller or the Owner, at the Owner’s discretion. The “Gross Purchase Price” is calculated as the fair market value of the gross cost of the Acquired Assets on the Effective Date. The “Net Purchase Price” is calculated as the fair market value of the gross cost of the Acquired Assets on the Effective Date less the outstanding principal and interest of any and all advances made from the Parent to the Sellers prior to the Effective Date directly or indirectly related to the Senior Secured Promissory Note executed between the Seller and Parent’s Subsidiary on June 18, 2020. The “Cash Due at Closing” is the calculation of the cash consideration of $1,500,000 less the outstanding principal and interest of any and all advances made from the Parent to the Sellers prior to the Effective Date directly or indirectly related to the Senior Secured Promissory Note executed between the Seller and Parent’s Subsidiary on June 18, 2020. See Schedule 1.4(a) for the calculation of and values associated with the Gross Purchase Price, Net Purchase Price, and Cash Due at Closing.
|1||For example, if the closing share price of the Parent, OTC: ZEST, is $2.00 on the date of the Effective Date of the Agreement, then the Buyer would issue $2,000,000 / $2.00, or 1,000,000 shares of common stock of the Parent to the Buyer or Owner at closing. |
