Investment Banking, M&A and Corporate Advisory Agreement
On January 17, 2017 the Company entered into a one year agreement with an Investment Banking, Merger and Acquisition (M&A) and Corporate Advisory firm ("Firm"). Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, if the Company did not terminate the engagement prior to April 18, 2017, it was required to issue 1,875,000 shares of its common stock. As of April 18, 2017, the Company had not terminated the agreement and therefore became obligated to issue the aforementioned shares. The Company recorded the expense in Professional Fees and Consulting Expenses in the amount of $131,250 on its Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. In addition to the contract fee, the Company could potentially be required to be obligated to pay an 8% M&A transaction fee (as defined in the Agreement) payable in shares of the Companys common stock (reduced by the value of the previously issued shares).
