|Re:||Letter Agreement Regarding Proposed Business Combination of Global Tech Industries Group, Inc. and Bronx Family Eye Care, Inc.|
Dear Mr. Bitsenko:
Global Tech Industries Group, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“GTII”), is pleased to inform the management of Bronx Family Eye Care, Inc. a New York corporation, (“BFE”), of its agreement set forth herein (the “Agreement”) to engage in a business combination with BFE pursuant to which BFE will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of GTII, and the shareholders of BFE (the “BFE Shareholders”) will acquire 2,650,000 shares of newly issued common stock of GTII (the “GTII Common Stock”), subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein. This letter agreement between GTII, BFE and the BFE Shareholders evidences the terms and conditions of the contemplated transactions (the “Transaction”).
The completion of a two-year audit of BFE, inclusive of the starting balance sheet as of January 1, 2021 (the “Audited Financial Statements”), by an auditor that is subject to the public corporation accounting oversight board (“PCAOB”), acceptable to GTII shall be a condition precedent to GTII’s obligation (but not to BFE’s obligation) to Close the Transaction, waivable by GTII in its sole and absolute discretion. As such, this Agreement is legally binding on the parties and will be in full force and effect as of the date on which it is executed by duly authorized representatives of both GTII and BFE.
This Agreement is intended to be a definitive binding agreement between GTII, BFE and the BFE Shareholders. Prior to the closing of the Transaction (“Closing”), which the parties intend to accomplish within thirty (30) days of the date by which all parties to this Agreement execute this Agreement. GTII may amend its Articles of Incorporation to increase its authorized common stock and its authorized preferred stock, in each case to such other number of shares as is determined by GTII in its sole discretion. GTII may in its sole discretion seek, but is not obligated, to raise capital (the “Offering”) for (a) BFE’s and GTII’s business, (b) to reimburse BFE and GTII for their Transaction costs, and (c) to pay the costs to be incurred to audit BFE’s financial statements for fiscal years 2019 and 2020, as determined by mutual agreement of GTII, the BFE Shareholders and BFE before the Offering. GTII, BFE and the BFE Shareholders agree to cooperate in the preparation of the private offering materials for the above-described Offering if it occurs. All parties to this Agreement acknowledge and agree that there is no guarantee as to whether GTII will be able to raise any capital in the Offering. If the Offering is conducted before the Vesting Date (as hereinafter defined) and by BFE rather than by GTII, then all investors in the Offering will be given the right at a later date to exchange their shares of the subsidiary for newly issued shares of GTII common stock at a discount to market price, determined by agreement of GTII and the BFE Shareholders, or in the absence of such agreement, by GTII in good faith.
1. The Transaction. BFE and Nikolay Bitsenko, Michael Andreyev, and Igor Kirzhner, the shareholders and 100% owners of BFE (the “BFE Shareholders”), hereby agree with GTII that at the Closing of the Transaction, the BFE Shareholders will convey and transfer to GTII, free and clear of all liens, encumbrances or claims, good title to all of the shares of the issued and outstanding capital stock of BFE owned by the BFE Shareholders, which is, and at the Closing will be, 100% of the total issued and outstanding shares of BFE capital stock (collectively, the “BFE Shares”). In consideration for the BFE Shares, GTII will at the Closing covenant to issue to the BFE Shareholders, on a date (the “Vesting Date”) within one hundred and eighty (180) days after the date of the Closing, the GTII Common Stock, free and clear of any liens, encumbrances or claims other than the standard Rule 144 restrictive transfer provisions. The GTII Common Stock will bear the following legend:
“THIS SECURITY HAS NOT BEEN REGISTERED OR QUALIFIED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933 (THE “ACT”) OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD UNLESS REGISTERED AND QUALIFIED PURSUANT TO THE APPLICABLE PROVISIONS OF FEDERAL AND STATE SECURITIES LAWS OR UNLESS AN EXEMPTION FROM SUCH REGISTRATION OR QUALIFICATION APPLIES. THEREFORE, NO SALE OR TRANSFER OF THIS SECURITY SHALL BE MADE, NO ATTEMPTED SALE OR TRANSFER SHALL BE VALID, AND THE ISSUER SHALL NOT BE REQUIRED TO GIVE ANY EFFECT TO ANY SUCH TRANSACTION UNLESS (A) SUCH TRANSACTION HAS BEEN DULY REGISTERED UNDER THE ACT AND QUALIFIED OR APPROVED UNDER APPROPRIATE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, OR (B) THE ISSUER HAS FIRST RECEIVED AN OPINION OF COUNSEL REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO IT THAT SUCH REGISTRATION, QUALIFICATION OR APPROVAL IS NOT REQUIRED.”
Nikolay Bitsenko will have the primary authority and responsibility to manage BFE and its business while BFE is owned by GTII. Mr. Bitsenko covenants and warrants to use his best efforts to achieve minimum gross sales of no less than the gross sales realized in calendar year 2020. For a period of two (2) calendar years after the Closing, the BFE Shareholders will be entitled to receive pro-rata performance-based bonusses for increase in gross sales, in the form of GTII common stock. The amount of GTII common shares to be issued as a bonus will be determined, in good faith, by GTII, not to exceed 1,000,000 shares.
GTII covenants not to take any action that would change the officers or directors of BFE without the prior written consent of BFE’s Chief Executive Officer. BFE and the BFE Shareholders agree that they will not offer for sale any GTII stock issued to them until the expiration of 12 months subsequent to the issuance date. Nothing herein shall be considered a bar to the participation of any BFE officer, director, or BFE Shareholder from participating as a seller in a public offering. If GTII determines to conduct an offering of its securities under the exemption from registration available pursuant to Regulation A+ of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, to raise capital, BFE and the BFE Shareholders agree to fully cooperate with GTII to enable it to make such an offering successful.
BFE represents and warrants that all of its current shareholders are “accredited investors” as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and that neither BFE nor any Shareholders, officer, director, employee or other affiliate of BFE is a “bad actor” as defined in Rule 506(d) of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. BFE covenants to use its best efforts to cause its shareholders to approve and participate in the Transaction or otherwise the Transaction will be cancelled.
After the execution of this Agreement and until Closing, the public reporting costs and Transaction costs of GTII and BFE will be borne as follows: 100% by GTII (except that BFE will be 100% responsible for auditing costs associated with the Audited Financial Statements). After the Closing, such costs shall be borne 100% by GTII.
2. Board of Directors and Executive Officers. On the Closing, Nikolay Bitsenko will be appointed as one of the three (3) new directors and the Chief Executive Officer of a GTII subsidiary (the “BFE Sub”), as well as assuming and confirming his positions with BFE as provided in this Section 2. Furthermore, at Closing, GTII, as the parent company and 100% owner of BFE, will cause the BFE Sub to appoint: (i) Nikolay Bitsenko as the director, Chief Executive Officer, and President of the Board of Directors of the BFE Sub; (ii) two directors to be nominated by GTII.
The parties agree to cause BFE to enter into an employment agreement with Nikolay Bitsenko and Michael Andreyev at the Closing that is reasonably acceptable to the parties to this Agreement. Failure to negotiate in good faith, or the failure to enter into said employment agreement, shall be grounds for terminating this Agreement. Mr. Bitsenko and Mr. Andreyev covenant to perform, for the BFE Sub, those substantially similar obligations and responsibilities as performed by them for BFE prior to closing, with substantially similar compensation from the BFE Sub as received from BFE prior to closing. Mr. Bitsenko and Mr. Andreyev agree not to open and operate any new other business, unless expressly agreed upon in writing by GTII or appearing in any employment agreement between BFE and Messrs. Bitsenko and Andreyev, while employed by the BFE Sub. Messrs. Bitsenko and Andreyev represents and warrants that BFE constitutes 100% of the business conducted by BFE.
Nikolay Bitsenko and Michael Andreyev acknowledge that the rights, duties, and consideration contemplated herein are personal to them, and they may not assign and/or sublicense this agreement, or the rights or obligations thereunder, to any other party without the written consent of GTII. Unless otherwise agreed in writing between GTII and Mr. Bitsenko or Mr. Andreyev, in the event that during the first 12 months after the Closing, Messrs. Bitsenko and Andreyev cease to perform their managerial services for BFE and/or GTII in accordance with their duties to those companies as provided in their employment agreements with BFE and this Agreement, or their employment agreements with BFE are terminated by either Mr. Bitsenko or Mr. Andreyev without GTII’s consent and without cause (i.e., GTII has not materially breached the Agreement and failed to cure it), then BFE and the BFE Shareholders shall be deemed to have breached this Agreement, and GTII will have the right, exercisable in its sole and absolute discretion, to (i) terminate and rescind the Agreement, (ii) recover all of its capital stock issued to the BFE Shareholders under the Agreement, (iii) return the BFE Shares to the BFE Shareholder, and (iv) assert claims against BFE and the BFE Shareholders for damages and other remedies at law or in equity. The BFE Shareholders will thereafter, and promptly, return all shares of the GTII Common Stock issued to them under this Agreement, properly endorsed for transfer to GTII or to a designee of GTII, upon a demand by GTII for such return in the event of a breach of this Agreement.
3. Timing. Upon execution of this Agreement by all parties, BFE will provide GTII with all information and make available all BFE personnel and stockholders required by GTII to complete its due diligence of BFE, its management and its shareholders, and the completion of the Audited Financial Statements. BFE hereby represents and warrants that it has completed its due diligence of GTII and is satisfied with the same. Upon satisfactory completion by GTII of its due diligence of BFE, GTII and BFE and the BFE Shareholders will then proceed to Closing, subject to the rights, obligations, and provisions of the second paragraph of the introduction portion of this Agreement relating to the Audited Financial Statements.

The Closing of the Transaction is subject to the following conditions in addition to those otherwise described in this Agreement: (i) prior to or at the Closing, GTII will have no debts or other liabilities, except as contemplated by Paragraph 5 of this Agreement or those incurred in the ordinary course of business of GTII and reported in its financial statements; (ii) all governmental, regulatory, and third party consents and approvals necessary or desirable to facilitate consummation of the Transaction will have been obtained, (iii) GTII’s satisfaction, which satisfaction GTII must confirm in writing prior to the Closing, with a full and complete due diligence investigation of all available information regarding BFE including financial, business and legal affairs; (iv) execution of consents by the holders of 100% of the outstanding shares of BFE to the Transaction; (v) transfer of ownership to GTII of 100% of the outstanding shares of BFE, free and clear of any liens, claims and encumbrances; (vi) receipt by each party to this Agreement of a written representation from the other party hereto that no material adverse change has occurred to the representing party between the date of execution of this Agreement and the Closing of the Transaction; and (vii) approval of the Transaction by the Boards of Directors of BFE and GTII, respectively. Neither GTII nor BFE is aware of any outstanding agreement by which either of them is bound which confers on any party the right to prevent the Closing of the Transaction. If the Closing of the Transaction does not occur by April 30, 2021 (subject to the right of the parties to this Agreement to extend this date by mutual written agreement), through no fault of any party to this Agreement, then any party hereto may terminate this Agreement by written notice to the other parties for any reason or no reason. A party who is at fault for delaying the Closing shall have no right to terminate the Agreement. A failure by BFE to deliver the Audited Financial Statements to GTII by April 15, 2021 shall be deemed to be the fault of BFE.
5. Debts of GTII. GTII represents and warrants that it will have no debts outside the ordinary course of its business at the Closing other than up to approximately $2 million (as reflected on its current financial statements) that GTII has not yet settled or converted to equity (collectively, “Unsettled Debt”). The settlement of these debts may involve a temporary extension of their maturity dates. The risk of claims for the remaining Unsettled Debt and any other liability of GTII arising prior to the Closing (collectively, “Other Pre-Closing Debt”), will be borne by GTII. GTII will negotiate settlements or otherwise effect cancellations of such debts in good faith.

All copies of such Information in written, graphic or other tangible form must be returned to the disclosing party immediately upon written request if the Transaction is not consummated. Unless such Information was previously known to receiving party free of any obligation to keep it confidential or has been or is subsequently made public by the disclosing party or a third party, it must be kept confidential by the receiving party, will be used only in performing due diligence and other actions for the Transaction, and may not be used for other purposes except upon such terms as may be agreed upon between BFE and GTII in writing.
