|Item 1.01||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement|
On November 16, 2021, Retractable Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) and Thomas J. Shaw, the Company’s CEO and President, entered into the Third Amendment to Technology License Agreement (the “Amendment”). The Technology License Agreement (the “Agreement”), originally dated June 23, 1995, grants to the Company the exclusive license to manufacture, market, sell, and distribute certain products, improvements, and patents. The Amendment expands the scope of the Agreement and provides additional protection to the parties in the event of a Hostile Takeover, as defined by the Amendment. Under the Amendment, under certain conditions, Mr. Shaw is granted the unilateral right to terminate the Agreement or cancel or convert a license under the Agreement from exclusive to nonexclusive following a Hostile Takeover. While there is no known immediate threat of a Hostile Takeover, the Company has strengthened its balance sheets in recent periods. The Amendment expresses the alignment of the Company and Mr. Shaw in fostering the Company’s strategy of promoting future growth in sales of the licensed products which are beneficial to public health and safety needs in the event of any future acquisition. Additionally, the Amendment may serve to increase the Company’s options in negotiating any future business combination.
A copy of the Amendment is attached as Exhibit 10 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The foregoing description of the Technology License Agreement is a summary and does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Technology License Agreement, as amended.
