D. One of the then shareholders of the Company, John M. Vuksich (“Vuksich”) appealed five orders entered by the Bankruptcy Court in Bankruptcy Case, four of which were appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The Supreme Court denied Vuksich’s petition for rehearing on November 28, 2016;
E. On September 25, 2013, the Bankruptcy Court entered its order granting GG’s First and Final Application for Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses for the Period September 13, 2012 Through July 31, 2013 (the “Final Fee Order”).

F. Pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 1129(a)(9)(A), the Plan required payment of the Final Fee Order to GG on the effective date of the Plan. However, in an effort to assist the Company in its reorganization efforts, GG entered into a letter agreement with the Company on July 29, 2013 (“Letter Agreement”) permitting the Company to make periodic payments to GG for the Final Fee Order. The Company subsequently defaulted under the terms of the Letter Agreement; having only made nominal payments to GG to date. GG continued to render services to the Company after the effective date of the Plan, particularly in connection with the Vuksich appeals;
G. The Company and GG subsequently executed an Agreement On Treatment of Administrative Claim of Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger LLP (the “GG Fee Agreement”).

The balance of the GG fees are due in full on or before December 31, 2019. Additional Payments were to have been paid to GG from the proceeds of other financings (as defined in the GG Fee Agreement) of the Company. Interest accrued on the outstanding amount at the rate of 6% per annum. The GG Fee Agreement provided an event of default would occur if the payments required were not paid, in which event all payments would be accelerated, and that GG had the right to convert the Company’s Bankruptcy Case to a chapter 7 or seek other relief from the Bankruptcy Court for the enforcement of the GG Fee Agreement;
H. Concurrent with the execution of the GG Fee Agreement, the Company executed a Common Stock Warrant (“Warrant”) in the form agreed to among the parties, entitling GG to apply up to $150,000.00 of the fees owed to it to the purchase of shares of common stock of the Company, as set forth in the Warrant. GG subsequently elected to exercise $4,360 for the issuance of 33,539 shares of the Company’s common stock;
I. On or about February 3, 2017 the Bankruptcy Court entered a final decree closing the Bankruptcy Case (the “Final Decree Order”) but specifically providing that “Notwithstanding the foregoing the bankruptcy case may be reopened on motion as set forth in the Greenberg Glusker Fee Agreement and/or the Mentor Fee Agreement, and this court retains jurisdiction for those purposes and as otherwise provided by law or as contemplated by the prior orders and proceedings of this court. account of the Company’s failure to comply with the Plan.”
J. Other than a payment of $18,898 paid on May 1, 2018 and a payment of $25,000 paid on June 13, 2019, the Company has not paid to GG the amount due pursuant to the GG Fee Agreement and is in default thereof and as of July 1, 2019, IGNG owed GG $1,245,380 (the “GG Fee Balance”) together with interest accruing at the rate of six percent (6%) per annum, or $204.72 per day from an after July 1, 2019;

At the time of the execution of the agreement, IGNG had approximately eighty-five million (85,000,000) outstanding shares of common stock. And as a result of the closing IGNG will issue to Grapefruit’s shareholders approximately three hundred sixty-two million two hundred forty thousand (362,240,000) IGNG common shares.

The shares of IGNG common stock trade on the domestic U.S. OTCQB over-the- counter stock market under the ticker symbol “IGNG”;
L. On May 31, 2019 IGNG executed a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”) with Auctus Fund LLC (“Auctus”), pursuant to which IGNG will sell $4,000,000 of convertible notes (the “Note(s)”) and issue $6,200,000 of callable warrants (the “Warrants”) to Auctus.

The Make-Whole Eligibility Notice shall set forth (A) the number of Make-Whole Shares to be issued to GG in accordance with Paragraph 5.3 below, (B) the Make-Whole Consideration (as defined below) and (C) the aggregate Make- Whole Consideration received by GG with respect to the GG Fee Balance, to date. On the Trading Day immediately following the receipt of the Make-Whole Eligibility Notice, the Company shall deliver a written notice (hereinafter the “Make-Whole Additional Shares Notice”) to GG setting forth the number of Make-Whole Shares to be delivered on the related Make-Whole Shares Delivery Date (as defined below) (together with reasonable calculations with respect thereto). The Company shall issue such Make-Whole Shares to GG on the third (3rd) Trading Day after the delivery of the Make-Whole Additional Shares Notice (hereinafter the “Make-Whole Shares Delivery Date”). On the Make-Whole Shares Delivery Date, the Company shall (i) (A) provided that the Transfer Agent is participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, credit such aggregate number of Make-Whole Shares to which GG shall be then entitled to GG’s or its designee’s balance account with DTC through its Deposit/Withdrawal at Custodian (“DWAC”) system, or (B) if the Transfer Agent is not participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, issue and deliver on the applicable Make-Whole Shares Delivery Date, to the address set forth in the register maintained by the Company for such purpose pursuant to this Agreement or to such address as specified by GG in writing to the Company at least two (2) Business Days prior to the applicable Make-Whole Shares Delivery Date, a certificate, registered in the name of GG or its designee, for the number of Make-Whole Shares to which GG shall be entitled. The Company shall not issue any fraction of a share of Common Stock upon any issuance of Make-Whole Shares on any Make-Whole Shares Delivery Date. If such issuance would result in the issuance of a fraction of a share of Common Stock, the Company shall round such fraction of a share of Common Stock up to the nearest whole share.
5.3 Calculation of Number of Make-Whole Shares. With respect to each Make-Whole Shares Delivery Date, the number of Make-Whole Shares issuable to GG shall equal the quotient of the GG Fee Balance then outstanding immediately prior to delivery of the Make-Whole Additional Share Notice (hereinafter the “Make-Whole Consideration”), divided by $.164 (subject to adjustment for stock splits, reverse stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations and similar events).
5.4 Limitations on Issuances of Make-Whole Shares. Notwithstanding anything in this Paragraphs 5 to the contrary, if as of any given date the Net Proceeds received by GG from the sale of Unrestricted Securities exceeds the GG Fee Balance, no additional Make-Whole Shares shall be issuable hereunder.
6. LEAK OUT AGREEMENT. Beginning on the date on which GG has received the Settlement Shares and ending 52 weeks thereafter, and with respect to any Make Whole Shares beginning on the date on which GG has received the Make Whole Shares and ending 52 weeks thereafter, GG shall limit its sales of the Settlement Shares, or any Make Whole Shares, as applicable, such that it will not sell more than the greater of 15% of the previous week’s IGNG trading volume or one hundred fifty thousand (150,000) Settlement Shares or Make Whole Shares (subject to adjustment for stock splits, reverse stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations and similar events) in any given week. GG shall provide trading records upon request from IGNG.
7. CONTINGENCY. If, for whatever reason, the Parties are unable within ninety days of the date of filing of the 3(a)(10) action with the Settlement Court to obtain an Issuance Order from the Settlement Court, the Company shall be obligated to provide GG with an alternative method for providing for the removal of restrictions on the Restricted Share Certificates (the “Alternative Method”) either, at GG’s election, by (a) filing, within 30 days thereafter, a registration statement with the SEC to register all Restricted Securities held by GG, or (b) promptly providing and/or facilitating an exemption for the resale of such securities under Rule 144, 17 CFR § 230.144.

IGNG, the issuer of the securities, and GG, the proposed parties to whom the securities are to be issued, agree that the value of the Cash Payments, the Warrant Shares, the Settlement Shares and the Make Whole Shares, utilized to satisfy the GG Fee Balance is fair and reasonable.
