NOTE 10 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Notes payable, related parties
Related parties accrued interest due to certain related parties as of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 are as follows:
We believe the stated interest rates on the related party notes payable represent reasonable market rates based on the note payable arrangements we have executed with third parties.
In March 2012, the Company entered into an Irrevocable License & Royalty Agreement with PWS that grants PWS an irrevocable world-wide license to the IP in exchange for a 5% royalty on all revenues from PWS and its affiliates. The term shall commence as of the date of this Agreement and shall continue for a period not to exceed the life of the patent or patents filed by the Company. PWS may sub license the IP and any revenue derived from sub licensing shall be included in the calculation of Gross Revenue for purposes of determining royalty payments due the Company. Royalty payments are due 30 days after the end of each calendar quarter. PWS generated licensing revenues of approximately $94,200 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and $205,000 for the year ended December 31, 2016, as such, royalties of approximately $21,900 and $17,200 were due at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.
In August 2014, the Company entered into a second Exchange and Acquisition Agreement (“New Technologies Agreement”) with Black Stone for the acquisition of additional intellectual property (“IP”) from Black Stone in exchange for 1,000,000 shares of common stock valued at $1,050,000. In 2015 the Company and Black Stone executed a rescission agreement of the New Technologies Agreement noted above that was effective December 31, 2014. The shares issued by the Company in accordance with the agreement were returned and all acquired IP returned to Black Stone.
In September 2014, the Company entered into an Equity Purchase Agreement (“Equity Agreement”) with a third party (“Seller”) whereby the Company issued 1,200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, valued at $1,212,000, in exchange for 22.5 membership interest units, representing 15% ownership interest in Sterall, LLC, a Delaware corporation. In March 2015, the Company and the Seller entered into a revised agreement whereby the 1,200,000 shares issued by the Company would be held by the Seller until the completion of an independent third-party valuation. Based on the fair market value of the Purchased Units from the valuation obtained by the Company, an amount of Consideration Shares will be returned to the Company to the extent that the fair market value of the Consideration Shares issued (see below) are greater than the fair market value of the Purchased Units. In no event shall the Company be obligated to issue additional shares as consideration for the Purchased Units. For purposes of this amendment, the fair market value of each Consideration Share will be $0.83333. In the event the parties are unwilling to accept the fair market value of the Purchased Units, as determined by the independent valuation specialist, on or before the Closing Date this Agreement, the transaction covered by this Agreement (the “Contemplated Transaction”) may be rescinded by either Party in writing.
In December 2014, PWS, Sterall, Inc and Sterall LLC entered into a Successor-In-Interest Agreement. The Successor-In-Interest Agreement states that Sterall Inc and Sterall LLC are in the process of consolidating their business under Sterall LLC and all agreements between PWS and Sterall Inc shall be binding in all regards Sterall LLC.
In October 2014, PWS and Medical Waste Services, LLC (“MWS”) formed a contractual joint venture to exploit the PWS medical waste destruction technology. In 2015, MWS licensed and installed a CoronaLux unit at an MWS facility, and subsequently received a limited permit to operate. Operations to date have included the destruction of medical waste. For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and the year ended December 31, 2016, PWS has recorded $13,100 and $15,700 in income which represents their 50% interest in the net income of the joint venture, respectively. In addition, for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and the year ended December 31, 2016, PWS billed the joint venture approximately $36,600 and $68,000 in costs incurred on behalf of the joint venture, respectively.
Due to the ability of the Company to rescind the shares issued at the commencement of the transaction the shares were considered contingently issuable shares and as such the 1,200,000 shares not considered issued and outstanding at December 31, 2015. The 15% ownership interest in Sterall was considered contingently held until the conclusion of this transaction.
As of December 31, 2015, an independent appraisal was not performed and the Amended Equity Agreement expired by its terms. The 1,200,000 shares subject to the original Equity Agreement and the Amended Equity Agreement became unrestricted in 2016 and are now considered issued and outstanding. The shares were valued at $720,000 and have been recorded as a long term other asset pending resolution of claims by the parties involved related to the Sterall licensing agreement from September 2013, Sterall equipment deposits of $330,000 from 2014 and the equity purchase agreement noted above. As of December 31, 2016, a settlement has not been reached by the parties however, they continue to negotiate an agreement and an impairment of the long term asset in the amount of $720,000 was recorded by the Company.
