Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On November 21, 2023, Novo Integrated Sciences, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement ("Ophir Agreement") between the Company and Blake Alsbrook, solely in his capacity as Court-appointed successor receiver (the “Successor Receiver”) in Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation v. C. Robert Coe II, et al., United States District Court for the Central District of California (the “Court”) Case No. 2:19-cv-04299 VAP (JPRx) (the “Action”). Pursuant to the terms of the Ophir Agreement, the Company agreed to purchase, and the Successor Receiver agreed to sell to the Company, the Ophir Collection (as hereinafter defined), subject to the contingencies outlined in the Ophir Agreement, including Court approval. The Ophir Agreement was effective upon execution by both parties; however, the Ophir Agreement is subject to approval by the Court. If the Court does not approve the Ophir Agreement, the Ophir Agreement will be void pursuant to its terms.

 

Pursuant to the Court’s July 2, 2019 order in the Action, as modified by the Court’s February 25, 2022 order in the Action, the Successor Receiver has possession of and right to sell a certain collection of 43 gemstones, 42 of which are certified by the Gemological Institute of America, known as the “Ophir Collection”. Together, the Court’s July 2, 2019 order appointing the original receiver, the Court’s December 3, 2019, order appointing the Successor Receiver, and the Court’s February 25, 2022, order are referred to collectively as the “Receivership Orders.” The Receivership Orders authorized the Successor Receiver to take sole custody, possession, and control of the Ophir Collection and to sell, assign, transfer, convey and deliver title and rights in and to the Ophir Collection subject to the approval of the Court to protect the interests of certain identified creditors.

 

Within two business days following the Company’s execution of the Ophir Agreement, the Company was required to, and did, deposit $25,000 (the “Deposit”) with the Successor Receiver,  which deposit will be refunded to the Company if the Successor Receiver is unable to obtain the Court’s approval of the Ophir Agreement.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Ophir Agreement, the Company agreed to pay $60,000,000 to the Successor Receiver to purchase the Ophir Collection as follows:

 

  (i) The Company has the right, at all times after November 21, 2023, to conduct a full and unfettered inspection of the Ophir Collection. While the Company has the right to inspect the Ophir Collection prior to closing, the Company’s inspection will not be a contingency to closing and the inability of the Company to inspect (or the Company’s decision not to inspect) the Ophir Collection prior to closing will not delay or prevent closing.
     
  (ii) After the Successor Receiver obtains Court approval of the Ophir Agreement, the Company will cause $59,975,000 (representing the $60,000,000 purchase price, less the Deposit) to be paid to the Successor Receiver, on or before December 19, 2023.
     
  (iii) Within one business day thereafter, the Successor Receiver will assign, transfer, convey and deliver free and clear title and interest in and to, and possession of, the Ophir Collection to the Company.

 

The Ophir Agreement contains certain covenants, representations and warranties customary for an agreement of this type, and the parties agreed to provide indemnification against certain liabilities.

 

 

 

The foregoing summary of the Ophir Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Ophir Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

8. Release. Except for the Seller Representation and Warranties in Section 4, Buyer hereby releases and forever discharges Receiver, each Creditor and their respective members, managers, directors, officers, shareholders, employees, predecessors, affiliates, former and present, successors, and assigns (collectively, the “Seller Parties”) from any and all claims, demands, proceedings, causes of action, orders, obligations, contracts, agreements, debts and liabilities whatsoever, whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, both at law and in equity on account of, arising out of or in connection with (a) the condition, value, suitability of the Ophir Collection or any gem thereof, in so long as the condition, value and suitability were not altered from the date of the Buyer Inspection to the date of Closing (b) Buyer’s purchase of the Ophir Collection (“Seller Released Claims”); provided, however, that the foregoing release shall not include and shall not operate to release any obligations of the Seller arising under this Agreement. Buyer understands it may later discover claims or facts that may be different from, or in addition to, those that Buyer now knows or believes to exist regarding the subject matter of the release contained in this Section 7, and which, if known at the time of signing this Agreement, may have materially affected Buyer’s decision to enter into it and grant the release contained in this Section 7, such information must not be known by the Seller, Creditor or any related party to either at the time of this Agreement. Buyer intends to fully, finally, and forever settle and release all Seller Released Claims that now exist, may exist, or previously existed, as set out in the release contained herein, whether known or unknown, foreseen, or unforeseen, or suspected or unsuspected, and the release given herein is and will remain in effect as a complete release, notwithstanding the discovery or existence of such additional or different facts with the exception of any facts known to the Seller, Creditors or related parties but not disclosed to the Buyer. Buyer hereby waives any right or claim that might arise as a result of such mutually unknown different or additional claims or facts. Without limiting the foregoing, with respect to those matters that are the subject of the releases given herein, Buyer expressly waives and relinquishes any and all rights, benefits, and protections afforded by any state or federal statute or common law principle limiting the scope of a general release or limiting the release of claims which the releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor, including California Civil Code Section 1542, and does so understanding and acknowledging the significance of such specific waiver of Section 1542 and any other such applicable statute or common law principle. Section 1542 states as follows:

 

“A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.”

 

Thus, notwithstanding the provisions of Section 1542 or any other such applicable statute or common law principle, and for the purposes of implementing a full and complete release and discharge of the Seller Parties with respect to those matters that are the subject of this release, Buyer expressly acknowledges that this release is intended to include in its effect claims that Buyer, Seller, Creditors and related parties do not know or suspect to exist in their favor at the time of execution of this Agreement.

 

9. Indemnification. The Parties shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the other Party from and against, and shall pay and reimburse the other Party for, any and all losses incurred or sustained by, or imposed upon, the other Party based upon, resulting from, arising out of or relating to (a) any inaccuracy in or breach of any representation or warranty set forth in this Agreement, (b) any breach of any covenant, agreement or obligation to be performed pursuant to this Agreement, and (c) any violation of law applicable to either Party’s performance of this Agreement.

 

10. No Liability. Buyer shall purchase the Ophir Collection free of any liens and encumbrances.

 

11. Taxes. Each Party is solely responsible for its or his tax obligations to any taxing authority to which the Parties are subject. No Party has relied on any information or representations of another Party concerning any tax liability arising out of this Agreement.

 

12. Notice. Any notice provided or required under this Agreement shall be made via email and U.S. Mail to the applicable address set forth below and shall be deemed to have been given when emailed (with confirmation of receipt) if sent before 5:00 p.m. on a business day (otherwise the next business day):

This Agreement may be executed by electronic means (including, without limitation, electronic signature, or portable document format (.pdf)), each of which shall be deemed an original instrument.

 

22. Captions and Headings. Captions and paragraph headings used in this Agreement are for convenience and shall not be used to govern, construe, or interpret this Agreement.
