(IGNG) (collectively “Grapefruit” or the “Company”) which has been licensed by the State of California to both manufacture and distribute cannabis products in California since January 2018 is announcing today that on August 22, 2019 it executed a formal Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with a privately held manufacturer (the “Patent Holder”) of a novel patented and trademarked delivery system comprised of highly engineered microscopic particles that topically deliver a therapeutic payload to the user over an extended period of time. This system is the “patchless patch”. Grapefruit and the Patent Holder have agreed to negotiate expeditiously and in good faith to enter into a more formal license agreement as soon as possible. The MOU, however, states that until a formal license agreement is reached, the MOU is binding on the parties. The proposed license shall be exclusive for an initial term of 2.5 years and the territory initially covered is the States of California and Illinois. Grapefruit paid the Patent holder $5,000.00 and issued it 100,000 shares of IGNG common stock on execution of the MOU. When the parties reach a formal license agreement Grapefruit shall pay the Patent Holder $50,000.00 in two installments of $25,000.00 each and shall issue 1,000,000 shares of IGNG common stock to the Patent Holder. Grapefruit will have 8 months from the actual technology transfer to commercialize the first ‘patchless patches” and shall pay a decreasing royalty of between 4 and 7% of revenues to the Patent Holder depending on the level of revenue achieved.
