Executive Employment Agreements – Bill Williams and Gerald Easterling
On April 1, 2015, the Company entered into employment agreements with each of Bill G. Williams, as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, and Gerald Easterling as the Company’s President, effective as of April 1, 2015 (the “Employment Agreements”).
The Employment Agreements are each terminable at will and each provide for a base annual salary of $96,000. In addition, the Employment Agreements each provide that the employee is entitled, at the sole and absolute discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors, to receive performance bonuses. Each employee will also be entitled to certain benefits including health insurance and monthly allowances for cell phone and automobile expenses.
Each Employment Agreement provides that in the event employee is terminated without cause or resigns for good reason (each as defined in their Employment Agreements), the employee will receive, as severance the employee’s base salary for a period of 60 months following the date of termination. In the event of a change of control of the Company, the employee may elect to terminate the Employment Agreement within 30 days thereafter and upon such termination would receive a lump sum payment equal to 500% of the employee’s base salary.
Each Employment Agreement contains certain restrictive covenants relating to non-competition, non-solicitation of customers and non-solicitation of employees for a period of one year following termination of the employee’s Employment Agreement.
On August 15, 2019, the late Mr. Bill Williams resigned from his position as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, effective August 31, 2019. The separation agreement calls for the continued payment of salary, at $8,000 semi-monthly, until his accrued compensation in the amount of approximately $217,000 is paid off, as well as his monthly rent, medical and automobile payments to continue to be paid and deducted against the accrued compensation and debt. After the accrued compensation is fully paid, the payments shall be $10,000 per month against the remaining debt balance, which is $223,000 as of date of settlement, until such balance is paid in full.
Vista Capital Investments, LLC
On April 30, 2019, a complaint was filed against the Company in the U.S. District Court in Dallas, Texas alleging that the Company breached a provision in a common stock purchase warrant (the “Vista Warrant”) issued by the Company to Vista Capital Investments, LLC (“Vista”). Vista alleged that the Company failed to issue certain shares of the Company’s Common Stock as was required under the terms of the Warrant. Vista sought money damages in the approximate amount of $7,000,000, as well as costs and reimbursement of expenses.
On April 9, 2020, the Company, Vista and David Clark (“Clark’), a principal of Vista, (the “Parties”) entered into a Settlement Agreement and Release (the “Settlement Agreement”) whereby the Company shall (i) pay to Vista the sum of $75,000, which the Company wired on April 10, 2020, and (ii) issue to Vista 17,500,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock (the “Settlement Shares”). For a period of time equal to 90-days from the date of the settlement, or July 8, 2020, the Company shall have the right, but not the obligation, to purchase back from Vista 8,750,000 of the Settlement Shares at a price equal to the greater of (i) the volume weighted-average trading price of the Company’s common shares over the five preceding trading days prior to the date of the delivery of the Company’s written notice of such repurchase or (ii) $0.02 per share. The Vista warrants outstanding were also cancelled as part of the Settlement Agreement. The $75,000, as well as the fair market value of the 17,500,000 common shares, which is $560,000 based on the market value of the Company’s common stock on the settlement date of $0.32, has been accrued in Accrued expenses on the accompanying Balance Sheet and recognized as Loss on Warrant settlement on the accompanying Statement of Operations, as of March 31, 2020.
