This Agreement shall commence immediately upon the official retail storefront opening to the public, which shall occur after receipt of all local and state required permits and licensing including occupancy readiness as determined by the City of Palm Springs and will terminate on the date the last Monthly Revenue Share payment is paid to GSRX, unless otherwise terminated as provided herein (the “Term”).
The Company shall notify GSRX within five (5) calendar days of the official retail storefront opening to the public. The parties expressly agree that email notification from Company addressed to Tom Gingerich at ***@*** or Troy Nihart at ***@*** constitutes adequate notification under this notification requirement.
Section 4. Payments of Monthly Revenue Share Amount; Late Payments
Commencing with the calendar day on the opening of the retail storefront and each subsequent month to include a full sixty (60) calendar months of revenues, GSRX shall be entitled to receive a payment from the Company for each calendar month in an amount equal to the Monthly Revenue Share Amount and an unaudited statement of Monthly Net Revenues applicable to the payment being made prepared by the Company; provided that, if during the Term the Company ceases operations and is not generating revenue for any reason whatsoever for a period of 30 consecutive calendar days (the “Carve-Out Period”), the Carve-Out Period will not constitute and count as a calendar month for the purpose of GSRX’s right to receive the Monthly Revenue Share Amount for the sixty (60) calendar months contemplated herein. All payments of the Monthly Revenue Share Amount shall be paid by wire (to an account as directed by GSRX), money order or cash, at the discretion of the Company. Company shall provide an accompanying attachment of the revenues or sales as reported to the State of California’s official track-and-trace system) within fifteen (15) calendar days after the last day of each the calendar month.
All payments to GSRX pursuant to this Agreement shall be reduced by any cash refunds paid and sales discounts (or properly accrued as payable under the Company’s financial reporting policies) with respect to amounts previously reported to GSRX as monthly gross revenue and should such cash refunds paid or sales discounts not be fully processed and discoverable in one particular month, those discounts may be rolled over into the calculation of the next month’s Monthly Revenue Share Amount; provided that, any cash refunds paid and sales discounts must be reflected in the State of California’s official track-and-trace system for any reduction in payment to GSRX.
To the extent that any payment of the Monthly Revenue Share Amount is not paid within the required fifteen (15) calendar days after the last day of each the calendar month, and the delay is not reasonably excused, the Company may be assessed a late payment charge at an annual rate equal to five percent (5%) based on the number of days elapsed out of a 365 day calendar year. A delay shall be excused, but the obligation will not be terminated, under this paragraph if the delay is due to events outside of the reasonable control of the Company, including without limitation an act of God, an act of force majeure, or local, state or federal shut down mandate. This late payment charge shall be cumulative and assessed once per quarter against the unpaid amounts due to GSRX from the Company from the due date until the date of payment thereof and shall accrue and be added to any balance of unpaid amounts subject to late payment.
