Re: Letter of Intent


Dear Etgar:


We are pleased to present this Binding Letter of Intent (the “LOI”) that describes the mutual understanding and intent of Weyland Tech, Inc. (“Weyland”), a Delaware corporation, or its wholly owned subsidiary (collectively hereinafter referred to as “Buyer”), to purchase all of the assets of Fixel AI Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Seller” or “Company”) in a transaction to be structured as an asset or stock purchase, provided, that the optimal acquisition structure will be evaluated by Buyer after information regarding the Company's legal structure, tax position and additional materials have been evaluated during due diligence (the “Acquisition”). The parties anticipate that the Acquisition would be pursuant to a formal purchase agreement to be entered into between Buyer and Seller, or its stockholders as applicable (the “Agreement”), which shall include customary representations, warranties, covenants and other provisions to be negotiated, together with other terms consistent with those set forth below. On the date that this LOI is executed by all of the parties (the “Effective Date”), the terms hereof shall be binding on all of the parties, subject to the completion of due diligence by the Buyer.


1.Purchase Price. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, upon the close of the Acquisition (the “Closing”) Buyer will purchase all of the assets of Seller in exchange for the following (the “Purchase Price”):
 Total consideration of $4,500,000 to be allocated as follows;


(a)A promissory note (the “Promissory Note”) payable to Seller in the amount of $1,575,000, accruing interest at 6% per annum, with the principal and accrued and unpaid interest thereon being due on the earlier of 18 months from the closing or a financing event that results in gross proceeds to Buyer of no less than $7,000,000 (the “Event”).


(b)The issuance at Closing of a number of shares of common stock of Buyer, equal to $2,925,000 worth of the common stock of Buyer priced on the 20 trading day volume weighted average price (“VWAP”) immediately prior to the Closing.


2.Working Capital. The parties shall mutually agree upon requisite working capital to remain in the Company as of the closing of the Acquisition, and include appropriate working capital adjustments to the purchase price based thereon.

3.Indemnification. No external escrow account will be required as part of this acquisition. Instead, any Buyer indemnification claims may be offset against any payments owed by Buyer to Seller under the Promissory Note.
 The “Basket” shall be set at $50,000. This represents the minimum cumulative losses that must be suffered by Buyer before Buyer can recover damages under the indemnification provisions. Seller is responsible for all damages once damages reach the threshold basket amount (e.g., assuming a $50,000 Basket, if cumulative claims are $45,000 the Seller pays $0. If the cumulative claims are $55,000 then the Seller pays $55,000).


4.Non-Competition Agreement. Concurrent with the execution of a purchase agreement, Mr. Etgar Shpivak, and certain other key executives to be identified, shall execute and deliver to the Buyer a comprehensive two (2) year Non-Competition agreement in a form to be provided by Buyer. The Non-Competition Agreement is intended to protect the goodwill of the business being acquired and to restrict Mr. Etgar Shpivak and such other executives from pursuing competitive endeavors in competitive markets to the Company and is not intended to preclude them from pursuing interests which don’t compete with the business or its future well-being. A mutually agreed upon portion of the Purchase Price shall be allocated to the Non-Competition Agreements as of Closing.


5.Closing Conditions. The Agreement will provide for certain closing conditions to the acquisition, including but not limited to:


satisfactory completion of due diligence investigations and legal review of Company;
corporate approval by both parties of the acquisition as required;
the company being free of debt or other debt instruments;
satisfactory review by Buyer of Seller’s financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2019; as well as the period ended June 30, 2020, and
other customary closing conditions, including, but not limited to, (a) all material consents and approvals of third parties being obtained for the acquisition of Company, (b) there not having been filed any litigation or government proceedings seeking to enjoin the acquisition, (c) no material adverse change to the business or assets of either party and (d) all necessary government filings having been made.


The Closing of the transaction contemplated hereby is intended to take place within thirty (30) days of signing this LOI. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties hereto acknowledge that the terms herein are intended to create legally binding obligations between the parties, subject to due diligence review by the Buyer.


6.Employment of Key Executives; Equity Compensation:


Employment Agreements. In connection with the closing, Buyer and key executives of Seller shall enter into a three-year Employment Agreement with Buyer, pursuant to which they shall serve in their respective operating roles (TBD) of Buyer and its subsidiaries (the “Employment Agreements”). Prior to the occurrence of the Event, as described previously, the salaries shall be kept at their current levels. Following the occurrence of the Event, the compensation for the key executives shall be as set forth in Exhibit A.


Equity Compensation. In connection with the closing, each of Etgar Shpivak and the other 2 founders shall receive a grant of 25,000 options to purchase common stock of the Buyer at $5.00 per share, which shall have a cashless exercise feature.

8.Conduct of Business Prior to Closing.
