SECURITIES PURCHASE AGREEMENT
This SECURITIES PURCHASE AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”), dated as of January 27, 2021, is entered into by and between HOME BISTRO, INC., INC., a Nevada corporation, (the “Company”), and VISTA CAPITAL INVESTMENTS, LLC (the “Buyer”).
A. The Company and the Buyer are executing and delivering this Agreement in reliance upon the exemption from securities registration afforded by the rules and regulations as promulgated by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”).
B. Upon the terms and conditions stated in this Agreement, the Buyer desires to purchase and the Company desires to issue and sell, upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement (i) a Promissory Note of the Company, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A, in the original principal amount of $330,000.00 (together with any note(s) issued in replacement thereof or as a dividend thereon or otherwise with respect thereto in accordance with the terms thereof, the “Note”), (ii) one hundred fifty thousand (150,000) restricted common shares in the Company (“Commitment Shares”) to be delivered to Holder, via overnight courier, within 5 business days following the Closing Date, and (iii) a five-year share purchase warrant entitling the Buyer to acquire 150,000 common shares of the Company (“Common Stock”), in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C (the “Warrant”).
NOW THEREFORE, the Company and the Buyer hereby agree as follows:
1. Purchase and Sale. On the Closing Date (as defined below), the Company shall issue and sell to the Buyer and the Buyer agrees to purchase from the Company (i) the Note in the original principal amount of $330,000, (ii) the Commitment Shares, and (iii) the Warrant to purchase 150,000 shares of Common Stock.
1.1 Form of Payment. On the Closing Date, (i) the Buyer shall pay the purchase price of $300,000 (the “Purchase Price”) for the Securities to be issued and sold to it at the Closing (as defined below) by wire transfer of immediately available funds to a company account designated by the Company, in accordance with the Company’s written wiring instructions, against delivery of the Securities, and (ii) the Company shall deliver such duly executed Securities on behalf of the Company, to the Buyer, against delivery of such Purchase Price. Upon the funding of additional monies under the Note, the Company shall issue to the Buyer the Commitment Shares. .
1.2 Closing Date. The date and time of the issuance and sale of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement (the “Closing Date”) shall be on or about January 27, 2021, or such other mutually agreed upon time. The closing of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (the “Closing”) shall occur on the Closing Date at such location as may be agreed to by the parties.
1.3 Commitment Share True-Up. If, during the period beginning on the six-month anniversary of the date of the Closing Date and ending on the later of (iii) the Maturity Date, or (iv) the date on which the Note is fully satisfied and cancelled (the “True-Up Period”), the then lowest traded price (as reported by Quotestream ™, a service of Quotemedia, Inc.) of the Company’s common stock (the “Common Stock”) for any Trading Day within the True-Up Period (the “Subsequent Share Price”), as reported on the Company’s Principal Market, is less than the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the Closing Date, then the Company shall, within three (3) trading days of Holder’s provision of written notice in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B (the “True-Up Notice”), issue and deliver to the Holder an additional number of duly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock equal to (X) the quotient of the Commitment Value (as defined below) divided by the Subsequent Share Price, multiplied by 1.5, less (Y) the Commitment Shares. The “Commitment Value” shall mean the product of the Commitment Shares multiplied by the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the Closing Date. Any additional shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to Section 1.d are referred to herein as “True-up Shares.” The True-up Shares, if required to be issued pursuant to this Note, shall be issued as provided in this Note, provided, however, that in no event shall the Holder be entitled to receive shares of common stock in excess of the amount that would result in beneficial ownership by the Holder and its affiliates of 4.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock at that time. For purposes of the proviso to the immediately preceding sentence, beneficial ownership shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and Regulations 13D-G thereunder. The Company shall at all times reserve shares of its Common Stock for Holder in an amount equal to 300% multiplied by (X) the quotient of the Commitment Value divided by the lowest traded price of the Common Stock during the five Trading Days immediately preceding the respective date of calculation, multiplied by 1.5, less (Y) the Original Shares.
2. Buyer’s Representations and Warranties. The Buyer represents and warrants to the Company as of the Closing Date that:

1. “NEITHER THE ISSUANCE AND SALE OF THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE NOR THE SECURITIES INTO WHICH THESE SECURITIES ARE [CONVERTIBLE/EXERCISABLE] HAVE BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS. THE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE, SOLD, TRANSFERRED OR ASSIGNED (I) IN THE ABSENCE OF (A) AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FOR THE SECURITIES UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR (B) AN OPINION OF COUNSEL (WHICH COUNSEL SHALL BE SELECTED BY THE HOLDER), IN A GENERALLY ACCEPTABLE FORM, THAT REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER SAID ACT OR (II) UNLESS SOLD PURSUANT TO RULE 144, RULE 144A, REGULATION S, OR OTHER APPLICABLE EXEMPTION UNDER SAID ACT. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THE SECURITIES MAY BE PLEDGED IN CONNECTION WITH A BONA FIDE MARGIN ACCOUNT OR OTHER LOAN OR FINANCING ARRANGEMENT SECURED BY THE SECURITIES.”

The Company shall be responsible for the fees of its transfer agent and all DTC fees associated with any such issuance. The Buyer agrees to sell all Securities, including those represented by a certificate(s) from which the legend has been removed, in compliance with applicable prospectus delivery requirements, if any. In the event that the Company does not accept the opinion of counsel provided by the Buyer with respect to the transfer of Securities pursuant to an exemption from registration, such as Rule 144, Rule 144A, Regulation S, or other applicable exemption at the Deadline (as defined in the Note), it will be considered an Event of Default pursuant to Section 3.2 of the Note.
