Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On or about November 17, 2020, the company entered into a Settlement Agreement and Mutual General Release with MC CRE Investments, LLC.; pertaining to the lease for real property at 72-895 Fred Waring Drive, Palm Desert, CA 92260. The Settlement Agreement and Stipulation of Judgement settles the complaint filed by MC CRE with the Riverside County Superior Court; Case Number PSC2000978 of which the Request for Dismissal has been filed and accepted with the Court.


The agreement stipulates a full and settlement of all matters between the Parties, Defendants, jointly and severally, will pay Plaintiff the total sum of sum of Two Hundred and Twenty-Eight Thousand Dollars ($228,000.00) (“Settlement Sum”). The Settlement Sum may be satisfied in full by Defendants making payment of the following sums totaling $148,337.75 as set forth herein; first down payment of $2,500, remaining down payment of $21,837.75 paid by January 1, 2021, and 35 equal payments of $3,500 commencing February 1, 2021, and a 35th payment of $1,500.


Should the Company fail to pay the sums set forth above, or any portion thereof when due, said failure shall constitute a default Defendants’ obligations hereunder (“Default”). In the event of such Default, Plaintiff shall give Defendants notice via email “Notice of Default”. After notice is given, Defendants shall have five (5) calendar days within which to cure the Default by delivering to Plaintiff the outstanding payment due as of the date of the Notice of Default. Acceptance of a late payment shall not constitute a waiver nor in any way prejudice Plaintiff’s right to receive and demand timely payments thereafter. Should Defendants fail to cure the default with five (5) calendar days of the date of Plaintiff’s Notice of Default, Plaintiff may enter judgment against Defendants, jointly and severally, in the total amount of Two Hundred and Twenty-Eight Thousand Dollars ($228,000) less credit for any payments made, pursuant to the terms of the Stipulation for Entry of Judgment.


Item 8.01 Other Events


On November 19, 2020, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission “OLCC” accepted a Stipulated Settlement Agreement in regards to accusations of administrative and procedural violations at Smith Scientific Industries, d/b/a EVIO Labs Medford. The decision to surrender follows an ongoing investigation by the OLCC for inadequate tracking of test sample waste. The company has until January 31, 2021, to transfer the license or suspend operations at this location. Prior to this date, all customer accounts will be transferred to the company’s locations in Tigard, Oregon, and service will be uninterrupted. Hemp and CBD testing will also continue without interruption. While we are displeased with the decision of the OLCC, with the ongoing COVID crisis, unstable political climate, dispersing of this lab location, will continue to allow EVIO to continue its focus on profitable Cannabis, CBD and Hemp Testing.
