Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Private Placement of Preferred Stock and a Note
On December 16, 2020, Medicine Man Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Amendment to Securities Purchase Agreement with Dye Capital Cann Holdings II, LLC (the “Investor”) to change the number of shares of the Company’s Series A preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Preferred Stock”) the Investor would purchase under the Securities Purchase Agreement, dated November 16, 2020 (as amended, the “SPA”), between the Company and the Investor from 12,400 to up to 13,000 in one or more closings, among other changes. The Company also executed a letter agreement with the Investor providing the rights described below (the “Letter Agreement”).
The Company issued and sold to the Investor 7,700 shares of Preferred Stock on the same date, 1,450 shares of Preferred Stock on December 18, 2020, and 1300 shares of Preferred Stock on December 22, 2020. The purchase price was $1,000 per share of Preferred Stock, for aggregate gross proceeds of $10,450,000 and aggregate net proceeds of approximately $ 8,205,500 after deducting placement agent fees and estimated offering expenses.
In addition, on December 16, 2020, the Company entered into a Secured Convertible Note Purchase Agreement (the “NPA”) with Dye Capital & Company, LLC (“Dye Capital”) and issued and sold to Dye Capital a Convertible Note and Security Agreement in the principal amount of $5,000,000 (the “Note”).
Also on December 16, 2020, the Company entered into a Consent, Waiver and Amendment with Dye Capital Cann Holdings, LLC (“Dye Cann I”), in order to waive certain participation rights in the offerings and amend the Securities Purchase Agreement between the Company and Dye Cann I, dated June 5, 2019, as amended (the “Dye Cann I SPA”), as described below (the “Waiver”).
The Benchmark Company, LLC, SDDco-Brokerage LLC, and DelMorgan Group, LLC, each acted as placement agent in connection with the transactions described above, and will each receive $31,500.00 as the Company’s placement agents.
Justin Dye, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and the largest beneficial owner of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), controls the Investor, Dye Capital and Dye Cann I and has sole voting and dispositive power over the securities held by the Investor, Dye Capital and Dye Cann I. Mr. Dye, our Chief Operating Offering, Nirup Krishnamurthy, and one of our directors, Jeffrey Garwood, are part owners of the Investor and Dye Cann I. Mr. Krishnamurthy and Mr. Garwood do not beneficially own any of the securities held by the Investor or Dye Cann I. The Company’s Board of Directors formed a special committee consisting of one independent director to review, evaluate, negotiate, approve and recommend to the full Board of Directors (if deemed appropriate), the issuance of shares of Preferred Stock in the transactions described under Item 1.01 and Item 2.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K. In addition, the special committee obtained an opinion delivered by a financial advisory firm to the special committee, which concluded that, based upon and subject to the procedures followed, limitations on the review undertaken and assumptions made and qualifications and other matters contained in opinion, the consideration to be received for the issuance of the Preferred Stock was fair to the Company from a financial point of view.
Terms of the Preferred Stock
On December 16, 2020 and effective as of such date, the Company filed a Certificate of Designation of Series A Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Certificate of Designation”) with the Nevada Secretary of State to create and authorize up to 60,000 shares of Preferred Stock pursuant to authority granted to the Company’s Board of Directors under the Company’s articles of incorporation. The table below summarizes the principal terms of the Preferred Stock.
|Dividend||Holders of Preferred Stock are entitled to receive cumulative dividends at the rate of 8% per annum on the “Preference Amount,” which initially is equal to the $1,000 per-share purchase price and subject to increase, payable annually on each anniversary of the date of the first issuance of any shares of Preferred Stock to holders of record on each such payment date, by having such dividends automatically accrete as of each dividend payment date to, and increase, the outstanding Preference Amount.|
In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Company, holders of Preferred Stock are entitled to be paid out of the Company’s assets available for distributions to its stockholders, before any payment shall be made to the holders of any junior securities, such as the Common Stock, an amount in cash equal to the Preference Amount (plus the pro rata portion of the next dividend, if any), for each share of Preferred Stock.
In connection with a Change of Control Transaction (as defined in the Certificate of Designation), either the Company or holders of Preferred Stock holding no less than a majority of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Preferred Stock may elect to treat such Change of Control Transaction as a liquidation and to receive the cash or the value of the property, rights or securities paid or distributed to holders of Preferred Stock in such Change of Control Transaction. Generally, a Change of Control Transaction means the occurrence of any of: (i) the acquisition by a person or group through a purchase, merger or other acquisition transaction or series or related transactions, in which such transaction or transactions are with the Company or approved by Company’s Board of Directors, entitling that person or group to exercise more than a majority of the total voting power of all shares of the Company entitled to vote generally in the election of directors (including all securities such person has the right to acquire), (ii) a merger or consolidation involving the Company and, after giving effect to such transaction, the Company’s stockholders immediately before such transaction own less than a majority of the Company’s aggregate voting power the successor entity of such transaction immediately after such transaction, (iii) a sale, lease or transfer of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets and the Company’s stockholders immediately before such transaction own less than a majority of the aggregate voting power of the acquiring entity immediately after such transaction, or (iv) the Common Stock ceases to be listed on a Trading Market (as defined in the Certificate of Designation).
|Conversion Price and Conversion Rights of the Holders||Each share of Preferred Stock will be convertible at the option of the holder thereof (i) for 90 days after the occurrence of a Listing Event (as defined in the Certificate of Designation), (ii) on the date of the consummation of a Change of Control Transaction if requested within 14 days after delivery to holders of a notice of an anticipated Change of Control Transaction, (iii) for 10 days after the receipt by the holders of a notice of forced redemption by the Company, and (iv) at any time after the first anniversary of the date of the first issuance of any shares of Preferred Stock, in each case, into that number of shares of Common Stock determined by dividing the Preference Amount (plus the pro rata portion of the next dividend, if any) of such share of Preferred Stock by $1.20. Generally, a Listing Event involves the listing of the Common Stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market, the Nasdaq Global Market, the Nasdaq Global Select Market or the New York Stock Exchange followed within 90 days thereafter by a public offering of Common Stock that generates gross proceeds to the Company of no less than $100,000,000.|
|Contingent Conversion Rights of the Company||The Company may force conversion of the Preferred Stock (i) within 90 days after the occurrence of a Listing Event, and (ii) on the date of the consummation of a Change of Control Transaction if requested within 14 days after delivery to holders of a notice of an anticipated Change of Control Transaction, other than a Change of Control Transaction as a result of the Common Stock ceasing to be listed on any Trading Market.|
Each share of Preferred Stock will be redeemable at the option of the holder thereof (i) for 90 days after the occurrence of a Listing Event, (ii) at any time after the fifth anniversary of the date of the first issuance of any shares of Preferred Stock, (iii) on the date of the consummation of a Change of Control Transaction if requested within 14 days after delivery to holders of a notice of an anticipated Change of Control Transaction, or (iv) for five days after the receipt by the holder of a notice of forced conversion by the Company. In each case, a holder of Preferred Stock may elect to have the Company redeem all or any portion of the shares of Preferred Stock held for a redemption price per share equal to the Preference Amount (plus the pro rata portion of the next dividend, if any). The Company has a right to defer such redemption one or more times until no later than the one year anniversary of the redemption date originally requested by the holder, provided that the dividends rate would be increased from 8% to 10% per annum during the first six months of such deferral period and 15% thereafter, if applicable.
In addition, the Company may redeem all or any portion of the Preferred Stock within 90 days after the occurrence of a Listing Event.
|Ranking||With respect to conversion rights, redemption payments and rights upon the Company’s liquidation, dissolution or winding-up or a Change of Control Transaction, the Preferred Stock will rank junior to the Company’s indebtedness and any securities the Company issues in the future the terms of which expressly make such securities senior to the Preferred Stock, on a parity with any securities the Company issues in the future the terms of which expressly make such securities on a parity with any or all of the Preferred Stock, but senior to the Common Stock and any securities the Company issues in the future that are not expressly made on a parity or senior to the Preferred Stock.|
|Anti-Dilution||The Preference Amount and the conversion price are subject to customary adjustments for stock combinations, stock subdivisions, reclassification and similar events but not for subsequent issuances of Company securities.|
|Voting Rights||Each holder of Preferred Stock will be entitled to cast the number of votes equal to the number of whole shares of Common Stock into which the shares of Preferred Stock held would convert into as of the record date for determining stockholders entitled to vote on any matter presented to the Company’s stockholders for their action or consideration at any meeting (or by written consent in lieu of meeting) voting together with the holder of Common Stock as a single class as if such shares of Preferred Stock were convertible as of such date.|
A copy of the Certificate of Designation is attached here to as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

The December 16, 2020 date reflects the first closing restrictions tied to a date certain. December 18, 2020 and December 22, 2020 apply to the subsequent closings.|
|·||Registration Rights: The Company granted the Investor certain demand and piggyback registration rights with respect to the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock.|
|·||Equity Incentive Plan Limitation: For as long as the Investor holds any shares of Preferred Stock, the Company may not have issued and outstanding awards under any equity incentive plan for the issuance of shares of Common Stock representing more than 12% of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock (calculated on an as-converted, fully-diluted basis, excluding warrants) in the aggregate.|
The SPA also contains customary representations, warranties, covenants, including indemnifications, and closing conditions.
