ASSET PURCHASE AGREEMENT
This ASSET PURCHASE AGREEMENT (as amended, restated, modified or supplemented from time to time, this “Agreement”) is executed this 14th day of July, 2021, but to be effective July 1, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), by and among Sanara MedTech Inc., a Texas corporation (“Purchaser”) and Rochal Industries, LLC, a Texas limited liability company (“Seller”). Purchaser and Seller are each referred to herein as a “Party,” and collectively as, the “Parties.”
WHEREAS, Seller is in the business of creating, developing and commercializing technology innovations in natural and synthetic polymers, antimicrobials, and biological systems (the “Business”); and
WHEREAS, Seller desires to assign, sell, transfer, convey and deliver to Purchaser the Purchased Assets, and Purchaser desires to purchase from Seller the Purchased Assets, in each case, as of the Effective Date and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises, covenants and agreements set forth in this Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereby agree as follows:
PURCHASE AND SALE OF THE PURCHASED ASSETS
1.1. Purchase and Sale. Seller hereby assigns, sells, transfers, conveys, and delivers to Purchaser the Purchased Assets, TO HAVE AND TO HOLD, unto Purchaser, its successors, and assigns forever. For purposes of this Agreement, “Purchased Assets” means all of the assets of Seller, including the Intellectual Property, the 510(k) FDA Clearances described on Schedule 1.1 attached hereto, furniture and equipment, supplies, goodwill, rights and claims of Seller wherever situated and of whatever kind and nature, real or personal, tangible or intangible, whether or not reflected on the books and records of Seller, other than Excluded Assets.
1.2. Excluded Assets. Nothing contained in this Agreement will be deemed to assign, sell, transfer or convey to Purchaser any assets of Seller that are set forth on Schedule 1.2 attached hereto (the “Excluded Assets”) and Seller will retain all right, title and interest to, in and under the Excluded Assets.
1.3. Assumed Liabilities. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, Purchaser shall assume and agree to pay, perform, and discharge only the liabilities in respect of the Purchased Assets that are set forth on Schedule 1.3, and only to the extent that such liabilities thereunder: (a) are required to be performed after the Effective Date; and (b) do not relate to any failure to perform, improper performance, warranty or other breach, default, or violation by Seller on or prior to the Effective Date (collectively, the “Assumed Liabilities”), and no other liabilities.
1.4. Excluded Liabilities. Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, Purchaser does not assume or succeed to, and will not be liable for, be subject to, or be obligated for, and the Purchased Assets will not be subject to, any liabilities of Seller (including any liabilities arising under environmental law) and/or related to the Purchased Assets that are not Assumed Liabilities (the “Excluded Liabilities”). It is understood by both parties that Purchaser assumes no debts owed by Seller or the Business and will not be liable for, subject to, or obligated for, any such debt. Seller hereby acknowledges that it is responsible for all Seller obligations incurred prior to the Effective Date including, but not limited to, accrued expenses, accrued wages and any related obligations (other than the Assumed Liabilities), Taxes, notes payable, loans, including any amounts due pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program.
1.5. Purchase Closing; Deliveries.
(a) The closing (the “Purchase Closing”) of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (the “Transactions”) shall take place simultaneously with the execution and delivery of this Agreement by electronic means. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all proceedings to be taken and all documents to be executed (including, without limitation, the Transaction Documents) and delivered by the Parties will be deemed to have been taken and executed simultaneously with this Agreement and no proceedings will be deemed to have been taken nor documents executed or delivered until all have been taken, executed and delivered.
(b) On the date hereof, (i) Purchaser and Seller shall duly execute and deliver to the applicable Party (A) a bill of sale, assignment and assumption agreement, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Parties (the “Bill of Sale, Assignment and Assumption Agreement”), and (B) in respect of any Purchased Intellectual Property, an assignment agreement respecting the assignment of such Purchased Intellectual Property, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Parties (the “IP Assignment Agreement”), collectively, the (“Transaction Documents”), and (ii) Seller shall deliver to Purchaser (A) evidence satisfactory to Purchaser of the release of any Liens (other than Permitted Liens) on the Purchased Assets, and (B) an affidavit of non-foreign status of Seller that complies with the Treasury Regulations under IRS Code Section 1445. On the Purchase Closing date, Purchaser shall deliver or cause to be delivered to Seller a certificate or, if the Shares are uncertificated, a notice of issuance, representing the Shares being issued to Seller.
1.6. Consideration. Upon execution of this Agreement, Purchaser shall pay Seller an aggregate amount equal to $1,000,000, of which (a) $500,000 will be paid in cash reduced by the amount of the Employee Reserve of $15,045.83 and increased by the amount of the security deposit of $11,146.10 held by Network EPA, LLC as the landlord of the Office Lease for a net cash payment of $496,100.27, and (b) $500,000 will be paid in shares of Purchaser’s common stock (the “Shares”). Such aggregate amount contemplated by this Section 1.6, together with the Assumed Liabilities, hereinafter referred to as the “Purchase Price.” The number of Shares shall be determined by dividing $500,000 by the average closing sale price of Purchaser’s common stock for the twenty (20) trading days immediately preceding the Purchase Closing.
1.7. Post-Closing Adjustments. As soon as practicable after the Effective Date, and in any event within sixty (60) days after the Effective Date, Purchaser and Seller shall prepare and deliver to the other Party, in accordance with this Agreement and United States generally accepted accounting principles, a statement setting forth each adjustment that was not finally determined as of the Effective Date ("Post-Closing Adjustments"). The Parties undertake to agree with respect to the amounts of such Post-Closing Adjustments no later than seventy-five (75) days after the Effective Date. Seller shall pay to Purchaser, or vice versa, as the case may be, within ten (10) business days after the date the Parties agree to the amount of such Post-Closing Adjustments.
1.8. Products Currently Under Development (“PCUD”). Following the Effective Date, Purchaser shall use commercially reasonable efforts to perform the Minimum Development Efforts in respect of each PCUD. If Purchaser performs the Minimum Development Efforts in respect of each PCUD, Purchaser shall be entitled to an intellectual property license from Seller in respect of such PCUD. Seller and Purchaser will negotiate the license agreement evidencing such license in good faith and in a form and substance mutually acceptable to the Parties, the terms of which will be based on the term sheet template of the existing license agreements between Purchaser and Seller and based on the material terms set forth on Schedule 1.8, including, without limitation, with respect to cash and/or stock (at Purchaser’s discretion) payments, minimum annual royalties and capped target net profit royalties (herein, the “License Agreement”). To the extent Purchaser does not incur the Minimum Development Efforts with respect to a PCUD or delivers written notice to Seller of its intention to not incur the Minimum Development Efforts in respect of such PCUD, Purchaser will grant Seller, subject to terms and conditions mutually acceptable to the Parties, the rights to the Intellectual Property reasonably necessary to monetize such PCUD. If Seller elects to monetize such PCUD, Seller shall pay to Purchaser an amount equal to 50% of all related proceeds received by Seller in respect of such PCUD. For purposes of this Section 1.8, “Minimum Development Efforts” means, with respect to any PCUD in respect of a calendar year beginning January 1, 2022, development efforts by Purchaser in an amount involving no less than $20,000 in expenditures and 40 work hours. For the avoidance of doubt, until Purchaser fails to incur the Minimum Development Efforts with respect to a PCUD, Seller shall not be entitled to monetize the PCUD. Furthermore, and not withstanding anything contrary contained herein, in the event Purchaser has not filed an application for clearance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration by December 31, 2026 (if such clearance is required), then in such event, at any time thereafter, Seller shall have the option to elect by sending written notice in advance to Purchaser that Seller elects to monetize such PCUD (the “PCUD Notice”). In the event Seller sends the PCUD Notice to Purchaser as permitted herein, each Party shall be entitled to receive 50% of all proceeds that are received in connection with monetization of such PCUD after all reasonable third party out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred from the date of the PCUD Notice and thereafter are paid.
1.9. New Products. For the three-year period after the Effective Date, Seller shall be entitled to receive consideration for any new product relating to the Business that is directly and primarily based on an invention conceived and reduced to practice by a member or members of Seller’s science team (“New Products”). In the event of the development of a New Product during the three-year period after the Effective Date, the Parties shall execute a License Agreement evidencing same. For such New Products, terms of such License Agreement shall include amounts equal to 25% of the licensing fees and royalties typically realized.
1.10. Withholding. Purchaser and any agent of Purchaser shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from amounts otherwise payable to Seller pursuant to this Agreement such amounts as are required by applicable Tax law to be deducted and withheld with respect to the making of such payment under the IRS Code, or any provision of state, local or foreign Tax law. To the extent that amounts are so withheld, such withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to Seller in respect of which such deduction and withholding was made.
1.11. Grants. Attached hereto is Schedule 1.11, includes all existing Research Grant Contracts awarded to Seller as well as pending Research Grant Contracts that have been awarded but have yet to be executed (collectively the “Existing Grants”). All additional Research Grant Contracts applied for by Purchaser or any affiliate of Purchaser after the Effective Date with any funder shall be referred to herein as a “Future Grant”. Existing Grants and Future Grants may be referred to herein collectively as the “Grants” or singularly the “Grant”.
1.12. Grant Proceeds.
For the three-year period after the Effective Date, Seller shall be entitled to receive consideration in an amount in cash equal to any Grant proceeds actually received by either Purchaser or Seller. If Seller receives Grant proceeds, Seller shall promptly forward to Purchaser an amount in cash equal to the amount of such Grant proceeds received by Seller, less any amounts Seller pays to vendors for Grant related goods and services.
Seller will invoice Purchaser on a monthly basis for an amount in cash equal to twenty five percent (25%) of the Grant proceeds actually received by Seller from the applicable Grant funder during the three-year period after the Effective Date. Purchaser shall pay any such invoices from Seller for an amount in cash equal to funds actually received by Seller from the applicable funder within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. Seller will continue to administer Grant accounting on behalf of Purchaser for those Grants received in the name of Seller and provide an accounting thereof to Purchaser.
Purchaser will pay Seller an amount in cash equal to (i) twenty five percent (25%) of any Existing Grant proceeds actually received directly by Purchaser from the applicable funder during the three-year period after the Effective Date, (ii) twenty five percent (25%) of any Future Grant proceeds actually received directly by Purchaser from the applicable funder during the three-year period after the Effective Date, less any consulting fees paid to Ann Beal Salamone related to the preparation of such Future Grant applications, within thirty (30) days of receipt together with providing an accounting thereof. Such amounts will be paid to Seller within thirty (30) days of the month-end in which the Grant funding was received by Purchaser.

Seller shall provide a true, correct and complete schedule including Employees’ exempt or non-exempt status, employment status (whether active or on leave of absence), compensation (whether annual salary, hourly rate or piece rate, as applicable, and amount paid or, if no set amount, range paid), bonuses or commissions, benefits, and accrued but unused vacation, sick or other paid leave and the rate at which such vacation, sick or other paid leave is accrued as of the Effective Date. All Employees are employees at-will, and no former employee has any right to recall or reemployment. No Employees are represented by any labor organization, union, or a party to any labor, collective bargaining, or similar agreement. There is no and has been no organizing activity involving Seller pending or threatened by any labor organization or Employee. Each independent contractor of Seller, if any, has been properly characterized as such and is not likely to be characterized by any governmental authority or agency as an employee or as having been in an employee-like relationship with Seller.

Seller has paid as of the date hereof all salaries, wages, bonuses, incentives, overtime, etc. owed to its Employees and former employees and any amounts due and owing to any independent contractor or former independent contractor of Seller. All current assessments under applicable workers compensation legislation that relate to Seller have been paid or accrued, and Seller has not been subject to any specialty, penalty or other assessment under such legislation which has not been paid.
2.9. Purchase Entirely for Own Account. This Agreement is made with Seller in reliance upon the Seller’s representation to Purchaser, which by Seller’s execution of this Agreement, Seller hereby confirms, that the Shares to be acquired by Seller will be acquired for investment for Seller’s own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to any resale or distribution of any part thereof in violation of any applicable law, and that Seller has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same in violation of any applicable law. By executing this Agreement, Seller further represents that Seller does not presently have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any Person to sell, transfer or grant participations to such Person or to any third Person, with respect to any of the Shares in violation of any applicable law. Seller has not been formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the Shares.
2.10. Disclosure of Information. Seller has had an opportunity to discuss Purchaser’s business, management, financial affairs and the terms and conditions of the offering of the Shares with Purchaser’s management and has had an opportunity to review Purchaser’s facilities. The foregoing, however, does not limit or modify the representations and warranties of Purchaser in Article III of this Agreement or the right of Seller to rely thereon. Seller understands that the Shares have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act which depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of Seller’s representations as expressed herein.
2.11. Investment Intent. Seller understands that the Shares are “restricted securities” under applicable U.S. federal and state securities laws and that, pursuant to these laws, Seller must hold the Shares indefinitely unless they are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and qualified by state authorities, or an exemption from such registration and qualification requirements is available. Seller acknowledges that Purchaser has no obligation to register or qualify the Shares for resale. Seller further acknowledges that if an exemption from registration or qualification is available, it may be conditioned on various requirements including, but not limited to, the time and manner of sale, the holding period for the Shares, and on requirements relating to Purchaser which are outside of Seller’s control, and which Purchaser is under no obligation and may not be able to satisfy. Either alone or together with its representatives, Seller has sufficient knowledge, sophistication and experience in business and financial matters so as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such investment in the Shares and is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Shares and, at the present time, is able to afford a complete loss of such investment.
2.12. No General Solicitation. Neither Seller, nor any of its officers, managers, employees, agents, equity holders or partners has either directly or indirectly, including, through a broker or finder (a) engaged in any general solicitation, or (b) published any advertisement in connection with the offer and sale of the Shares.
2.13. Accredited Investor. Seller is an accredited investor as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.
2.14. Legends. Seller understands that the Shares and any securities issued in respect of or exchange for the Shares, may be notated with any legend required by the securities laws of any state to the extent such laws are applicable to the Shares represented by the certificate, instrument, or book entry so legended and the following legend:
“THE SHARES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AND HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT AND NOT WITH A VIEW TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THE SALE OR DISTRIBUTION THEREOF. NO SUCH TRANSFER MAY BE EFFECTED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATED THERETO OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN A FORM SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933.”
2.15. Bad Actors. Neither Seller nor any of its managers, executive officers, general partners or managing members is subject to any of the “bad actor” disqualifications described in Rule 506(d)(1)(i) to (viii) under the Securities Act (“Disqualification Events”), except for Disqualification Events covered by Rule 506(d)(2) under the Securities Act.

4.1. Further Assurances. From time to time following the Effective Date, each of the Parties shall, and shall cause their respective affiliates to, execute, acknowledge and deliver such additional documents, instruments, further conveyances, notices, releases, assumptions, acquittances, assurances and such other instruments, and shall take such further actions, as may be reasonably necessary or appropriate to carry out the provisions of this Agreement and the Transaction Documents and give effect to the Transactions.
4.2. Tax Matters.
(a) Each Party is responsible for paying their own federal, state, local or foreign net income Taxes resulting from consummation of the Transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The Purchase Price, the Assumed Liabilities, and other amounts treated as consideration for U.S. federal income Tax purposes will be allocated among the Purchased Assets as determined in a manner mutually agreeable to Purchaser and Seller not later than 90 days following the Effective Date. All Tax Returns filed by Purchaser and Seller will be prepared consistently with such allocation.
(b) All real property taxes, personal property taxes, or ad valorem obligations and similar recurring taxes and fees on the Purchased Assets for taxable periods beginning before, and ending after, the Effective Date, shall be prorated between Purchaser and Seller as of the Effective Date. Seller shall be responsible for all such Taxes and fees on the Purchased Assets accruing during any period up to and including the Effective Date.

(c) Purchaser and the Seller shall furnish or cause to be furnished to each other, as promptly as practicable, such information and assistance relating to the Purchased Assets and the Assumed Liabilities as is reasonably necessary for the preparation and filing of any Tax Return, claim for refund or other filings relating to Tax matters, for the preparation for any Tax audit, for the preparation for any Tax protest, for the prosecution or defense of any suit or other proceeding relating to Tax matters.
(d) At Purchaser’s request, Seller shall notify all of the Tax authorities for the jurisdictions so requested by Purchaser of the Transactions contemplated by this Agreement in the form and manner required by such Tax authorities, if the failure to make such notifications or receive any available tax clearance certificate (“Tax Clearance Certificate”) could reasonably be expected to subject Purchaser to liability for any Taxes of Seller. If, in respect to any application for Tax Clearance Certificates made pursuant to this Section 4.2(d), any Tax authority asserts that Seller is liable for any Tax, Seller shall, subject to any bona fide good faith dispute, promptly pay any and all such amounts and shall have provided evidence to Purchaser that such liabilities have been paid in full or otherwise satisfied.

Subject to the limitations set forth in Article V (which is incorporated herein by reference), Purchaser shall indemnify Seller for any Losses that Seller incurs with respect thereto to the extent such Losses are not caused by, result from, or arise from, any actions or omissions by Seller, and Seller shall indemnify Purchaser for any Losses that Purchaser incurs with respect thereto to the extent such Losses are caused by, result from, or arise from, any actions or omissions by Seller, including any infringement by Seller’s Trademark of the trademark rights of any third party.

(b) Confidentiality. From and after the Effective Date, except as required by law, each Party (each a “Receiving Party” as applicable) shall keep confidential and shall not disclose, use or divulge on and after the Effective Date any confidential, proprietary, non-public or secret information (“Confidential Information”) the Receiving Party may obtain from the other Party (each a “Disclosing Party” as applicable) pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise, unless such information is known, or until such information becomes known, to the public (other than as a result of a disclosure by the Receiving Party in breach of this Section 4.5(b)); provided, that the Receiving Party may disclose such information to: (i) its attorneys, accountants, consultants and other professionals to the extent necessary to obtain their services in connection with the Purchased Assets or the Excluded Assets, as applicable, and who are advised of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information; or (ii) to a governmental authority compelling production.

(c) Indemnification by Purchaser. Subject to the limitations and other terms and conditions of this Article V, Purchaser shall, and hereby agrees to, indemnify and hold harmless Seller and Seller’s principals, members, officers, managers, employees and affiliates (collectively, the “Seller Indemnified Parties” and together with the Purchaser Indemnified Parties, herein an “Indemnified Party”) from and after the Effective Date against and with respect to any Losses incurred or sustained by Seller following the Effective Date based on, relating to, resulting from or in connection with: (i) any breach of any representations or warranties of Purchaser contained in Article III; (ii) any breach or default in the performance of any covenants and agreements to be performed by Purchaser hereunder; and (iii) any Assumed Liabilities.
5.2. Limitations to Indemnification. The indemnification rights and obligations provided for in Section 5.1 are subject to the following limitations:
(a) Notwithstanding the provisions of this Article V, neither Seller nor Purchaser shall have any indemnification obligations for Losses unless the aggregate amount of all such Losses equals or exceeds $10,000 (the “Deductible”); provided, that at the time the Deductible has been met, the Indemnitor shall be responsible solely for the amount of such Losses in excess of the Deductible. In no event shall the aggregate amount of indemnifiable Losses to be paid by Seller or Purchaser under this Article V exceed $150,000 (the “General Cap”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article V, (i) neither the Deductible nor the General Cap shall be applicable with respect to any indemnification obligation arising out of any fraudulent, intentional or willful breach or any breach of any Fundamental Representations, and (ii) in no event shall the aggregate amount of indemnifiable Losses to be paid by Seller or Purchaser under this Article V in respect of any indemnification obligation arising out of any fraudulent, intentional or willful breach or any breach of any Fundamental Representations exceed an amount equal to $500,000.
(b) The right to indemnification or any other remedy based on representations, warranties, covenants and agreements in this Agreement, or in any Transaction Document shall not be affected by any investigation conducted at any time, or any knowledge acquired (or capable of being acquired) at any time, whether before or after the execution and delivery of this Agreement or the Effective Date, by such party or its affiliates or representatives with respect to the accuracy or inaccuracy of, or compliance with, any such representation, warranty, covenant or agreement. The waiver of any condition based on the accuracy of any representation or warranty, or on the performance of or compliance with any covenant or agreement, will not affect the right to indemnification or any other remedy based on such representations, warranties, covenants, and agreements.
(c) The amount of any Losses subject to indemnification hereunder or of any claim therefor shall be calculated net of any insurance proceeds (net of direct collection or recovery costs and expenses) actually received by the Seller Indemnified Parties or the Purchaser Indemnified Parties, as applicable, on account of such Losses, pursuant to insurance policies in effect immediately prior to the Purchase Closing. If the Seller Indemnified Parties or the Purchaser Indemnified Parties actually receive insurance proceeds as described above, and such proceeds were not included in the computation of Losses and/or Losses have been paid prior to the receipt of such proceeds, the Seller Indemnified Parties or the Purchaser Indemnified Parties, as applicable, shall refund the Purchaser or Seller, as applicable, the amount of such insurance proceeds that constitutes a duplicate recovery, up to the amount received in connection with such indemnification claim (net of direct collection or recovery costs and expenses). In connection with any Losses arising under this Agreement, Purchaser Indemnified Parties and Seller Indemnified Parties, as applicable, shall utilize commercially reasonable efforts to pursue collection of any such insurance, if applicable, in order to mitigate against any such Losses (provided, however, that no Indemnified Party shall be required to notify the provider(s) or payor(s) of, or seek recovery for such Losses under, any such insurance policies prior to seeking and obtaining recovery for such Losses pursuant to, and subject to, this Article V).
(d) If an Indemnified Party recovers any such amounts in respect of Losses from any third party responsible for such Losses pursuant to any indemnity, contribution or similar arrangements in effect immediately prior to the Purchase Closing, at any time after the Indemnifying Party has paid all or a portion of such Losses to the Indemnified Party pursuant to the provisions of this Article V, the Indemnified Party shall promptly reimburse the indemnifying Party for any indemnification payment made by the indemnifying Party with respect to such Losses that constitutes a duplicate recovery, up to the amount received by the Indemnified Party from the indemnifying Party in connection with such indemnification claim (net of direct collection or recovery expenses).
(e) Following the Purchase Closing, the sole and exclusive remedy for the breach of any representation or warranty of this Agreement shall be the indemnification provisions set forth in this Article V; provided, however, that nothing herein will limit or otherwise affect any (a) indemnified Party’s rights hereunder or ability to make, pursue, enforce or prosecute any claims based on fraud or intentional misrepresentation, or (b) any Party’s rights to specific performance, injunctive or other equitable relief to enforce its rights under this Agreement or otherwise in connection with the Transactions contemplated hereby.
