H. MJHI has loaned PPK $620,000 against a Convertible Note (the “Note”), which Note is incorporated herein by Reference.
BASED, upon the foregoing premises, which are incorporated herein by this reference, and for and in consideration of the mutual promises and covenants hereinafter set forth, and other good and valuable consideration the receipt and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, it is agreed as follows:
PURCHASE AND SALE
|1.1.||Purchase and Sale of Common Stock. MJHI agrees to purchase from PPK shares of PPK Common Stock, par value $0.01 (“PPK Stock”), equivalent to a 10% interest in PPK (10% of the issued and outstanding common stock of PPK as at the date of purchase/transfer), for a purchase price of one million dollars ($1,000,000) (the “Purchase Price”). A cap table for PPK reflecting ownership of PPK on the Closing Date is attached hereto as Exhibit A. This initial purchase places an aggregate value of $10,000,000 on PPK as of the Closing Date. The purchase price is payable as follows:|
|1.1.1.||Six hundred twenty thousand dollars ($620,000) by conversion of the Note on the the Closing Date.|
|1.1.2.||Three hundred eighty thousand dollars ($380,000) payable in the form of MJHI common stock at a price of $0.25 per share or 1,520,000 shares of MJHI common stock in the aggregate.|
|1.1.3.||Except as otherwise set forth herein, all of the Initial Shares shall be subject to the Lock-up/Leak-out Agreement according to the terms set out in Paragraph 1.5 of this Agreement.|
|1.2.||MJHI Option to Increase Ownership. At any time from the Closing Date through March 31, 2023, MJHI will have the option to increase its ownership of PPK, up to 100%, through purchase of additional PPK shares on the same terms as set forth in Paragraph 1.01, above. If PPK is not able to provide to MJHI by July 30, 2022, the audited financial statements that would be required for a filing with the United States Securities & Exchange Commission to reflect an increase in ownership of PPK to a percentage greater than 50%, the Option Period shall be extended to a date six months after the date such audited financial statements become available. SHAREHOLDERS acknowledge that:|
|1.2.1.||Until such time as PPK has obtained audited financial statements for at least a twelve-month period, MJHI will not increase its ownership above 49%. The ownership percentage may also be limited by applicable Oklahoma law respecting percentage of ownership by a foreign person or corporation for purposes of complying with Oklahoma cannabis licensing regulations. The parties agree to work together to ensure that MJHI’s objectives and investment plan do not interfere or create regulatory issues relating to the cannabis license.|
|1.2.2.||Acquisition of additional ownership of PPK may be done in a series of transactions over time. There is no date on which a specific additional purchase will occur, and it is up to the discretion of MJHI and PPK to determine additional purchase amounts and timing during the option period which expires on March 31, 2023, or such later date if extended as provided in Paragraph 1.2. Such additional amounts may be done through direct investment by MJHI into PPK, or through purchase of shares from SHAREHOLDERS, at the option of PPK and SHAREHODLERS.|
|1.2.3.||In the event that MJHI is not able to move forward with the purchase of a controlling interest in PPK by March 31, 2023, MJHI may elect, at MJHI’s sole discretion, to unwind the investment in PPK. The unwind agreement will be on terms negotiated at the time MJHI makes the election.|
|1.2.4.||The consideration for additional ownership of PPK will be paid 62% in cash, and 38% in MJHI common stock at a price of $0.25 per share, unless first agree to a different split between cash and MJHI common stock.|
|1.3.||Earn-out. SHAREHOLDERS will be entitled to earn-out compensation based upon the value of PPK on March 31, 2023. Value of PPK for this purpose will be three (3) times earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for the 12 months ended March 31, 2023. The value of PPK as calculated by this formula will result in a pro forma adjustment in the purchase price for aggregate the percentages of the Company acquired in Paragraphs 1.01 and 1.02 of this Agreement as of March 31, 2023, and additional cash and MJHI stock will be paid to PPK to bring the total consideration paid the value of the percentage interest in PPK actually acquired. For example, if the valuation of PPK calculated on March 31, 2023 is $15,000,000, and on that date, MJHI owned 51% of PPK, the total consideration due, including amounts previously paid at the original valuation, would be $7,650,000. The original valuation payments would have already totaled $5,100,000 so an additional earnout payment of $2,550,000 would be due. Any Earnout payment due will be paid 62% in cash and 38% in MJHI common stock where the MJHI common stock is priced at $0.25 per share. If the earnout valuation falls below $10,000,000 on the earnout valuation date, the interest of MJHI as a percentage of total ownership will be adjusted pro rata so that the percentage equals the aggregate consideration paid by MJHI divided by the recalculated value. If this recalculation would have the effect of increasing MJHI ownership to 100%, no further adjustment will be made and no claw back of consideration paid by MJHI will be due from PPK.|
|1.4.||Employment of Founders and key personnel. The Parties desire that Clinton Pyatt (“Founder”), Joe Witeck, Jeff Zella, Kim Pyatt and Dana Zella (the “Key Employees”) continue to manage and operate PPK in collaboration with MJHI after closing. The parties agree that PPK and the Founder and Key Employees will enter into three-year employment agreements with PPK in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B (the “Employment Agreements”). The employment agreements will include restrictive covenants setting forth Ralph Clinton Pyatt III’s agreements not to compete and not to solicit customers. In the event the employment agreements are not completed on the Closing Date, the parties agree to complete the employment agreements within 30 days of the Closing Date.|
|1.5.||Lock-up/Leak-out Agreement. All MJHI Stock issued to the SHAREHOLDERS pursuant to this Agreement will be restricted stock and subject to a lock-up/leak-out agreement in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B (the “Lock-up/Leak-out Agreement”). Specifically, the Lock-up/Leak-out Agreement includes the following terms:|
|1.5.1.||A total term of thirty-six (36) months;|
|1.5.2.||No sales within the first six (6) months;|

|1.5.5.||Each seller is limited to sell no more than 2,500 shares of MJHI Stock on any single trading day. In the event average daily volume of trading on the OTCQB Market (or another market is applicable) increases to more than 25,000 shares, this limitation will be increased to 10% of the average daily trading volume. Average daily trading volume for this purpose will be determined over the immediate preceding 15 trading days.|

|1.7.||MJHI’s Due Diligence.

In the event that answers to questions regarding the due diligence information submitted by MJHI have not been provided within the Due Diligence Period, the Due Diligence Period will be extended to a date not later than seven days after such answers are provided.|
In the event that MJHI fails to provide SHAREHOLDERS with written notification of PPK and/or SHAREHOLDERS’s acceptance of due diligence (the “Notice of Acceptance”) within the Due Diligence Period, including any extensions of the Due Diligence Period in accordance with this Paragraph 1.7, then this Agreement will terminate.

PUT OPTION, ADDITIONAL FUNDING, AND CASH DISBURSEMENTS
|2.1.||Put Option. In order to protect PPK and/or SHAREHOLDERS against a drop in the price of MJHI common stock below the price set for this acquisition, MJHI grants PPK and/or SHAREHOLDERS the option to put the stock received in the acquisition back to MJHI at $0.25 per share in accordance with the following conditions.|
|2.1.1.||No shares may be put back to MJHI until such shares have been held for at least six months.|
|2.1.2.||The number of shares put to MJHI shall not exceed 5% of the total shares held by the seller executing the put option in any calendar quarter.|
|2.1.3.||Upon exercise of the put option, MJHI will pay the seller exercising the put option $0.25 per share in cash for the number of shares included in the put option, up to the maximum number of shares set out in Section 2.01(2), above.|
|2.1.4.||In the event MJHI is unable to pay the cash required by seller’s exercise of the put option, MJHI’s interest in PPK will be reduced by the number of shares for which the payment is not met and the shares will be retired. For example, PPK is receiving 1,520,000 shares of MJHI common stock as partial consideration for the initial acquisition of a 10% interest in PPK. The shares represent 38% of the purchase price or 3.8% of the total interest acquired. If the SHAREHOLDERS put 76,000 of these shares of MJHI common stock back to MJHI under this put option and MJHI is unable to pay $19,000 to the SHAREHOLDERS, the ownership interest of MJHI would be reduced by 76,000/1,520,000 times 3.8% or 0.19%.|
|2.1.5.||The shares that are put back to MJHI will be cancelled on the books of MJHI.|
|2.2.||Additional Funding. In the event the operating business of PPK requires additional funds to continue growth, and either MJHI or SHAREHOLDERS are willing to advance those funds to PPK, such advances will be on the terms negotiated at the time of the advances. The money that is being loaned to PPK will cause a Note to be signed by PPK for the amount being loaned. It is the intention of the parties that advances of this nature be funded pro rata between MJHI and SHAREHOLDERS based on their respective percentages of ownership of PPK at the time of the advances, but non-pro rata advances may be made at the discretion of the parties. Any such advances made by MJHI and/or SHAREHOLDERS will be repaid the party or parties that made the advances, before payment of dividends or other distributions of cash flow to MJHI or SHAREHOLDERS.|
|2.3.||Disbursements. So long as SHAREHOLDERS have a continuing direct ownership interest in PPK, MJHI, SHAREHOLDERS, and PPK agree that quarterly distributions of free cash flow will be made to MJHI and SHAREHOLDERS totaling 75% of such free cash flow. For this purpose, free cash flow will be considered to be EBITDA (determined in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in effect at the time in the United States – USGAAP) reduced by payments of debt principal and by repayments of any advances made by MJHI and/or PPK and SHAREHOLDERS in accordance with Paragraph 2.02 of this Agreement. The parties may collectively agree to retain free cash flow in PPK for operating and growth capital. All disbursements pursuant to this Paragraph will be made pro rata based on the respective ownership percentage of PPK.|
