Item 9. Other Events.


On March 5, 2021, Hightimes Holding Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Hightimes”), and its newly formed subsidiary DHS Acquisition Corp. (“DHS”) entered into a conditional share purchase agreement (the “Share Purchase Agreement”) to acquire 100% of the capital stock of Desert’s Finest, a California corporation (“Desert’s Finest”), from its shareholders. Desert’s Finest owns and operates a cannabis dispensary in Desert Hot Springs, California. Under the terms of the Share Purchase Agreement, Hightimes agreed to pay the selling shareholders the sum of $6,200,000 of which (i) $25,000 was paid on signing the Share Purchase Agreement, (ii) $825,000 is payable in cash at closing and (iii) the balance of $5,350,000 will be evidenced by $5,350,000 in 8% convertible notes (the “Notes”), which Notes will be issuable to the selling shareholders at closing and will be due 30 months from the closing date. Interest under the Notes will be payable monthly commencing six months after the closing.


Upon issuance, the Notes will be convertible at the option of the holder into Hightimes Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Common Stock”), and will also be subject to mandatory conversion into Class A Common Stock under the following conditions: (i) 25% of the outstanding balance of the Notes are subject to mandatory conversion upon the latest to occur of the following conditions, provided that all conditions must be satisfied at the time of conversion: (a) Class A Common Stock trading in excess of $500,000 of daily trading volume for 15 consecutive trading days, (b) 60 days after completion of the Hightimes Regulation A+ public offering and commencement of trading on the OTCQX Market or other “Qualified Securities Market” (as defined in the Share Purchase Agreement), and (c) September 4, 2021 (the “Initial Mandatory Conversion Date”); and (ii) Following the Initial Mandatory Conversion Date, additional 25% tranches of the outstanding balance of the Notes will be subject to mandatory conversion, every 45 days (each a “Subsequent Mandatory Conversion Date”), provided that the Class A Common Stock trades in excess of $500,000 of daily trading volume for 15 consecutive days immediately prior to each such Subsequent Mandatory Conversion Date. The Notes will be secured by a pledge to the selling shareholders of the shares of common stock of Desert’s Finest.


Closing of the acquisition is subject to certain regulatory approvals of the California Bureau of Cannabis Control and the City of Hot Springs consenting to the change of ownership of Desert’s Finest as well as the final approval of ExWorks Capital Fund I, L.P., our senior secured lender.
