Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On May 29, 2020 (the “Closing Date”), NexGel, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) whereby the Company purchased all of the outstanding equity securities of Sport Defense LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Sports Defense”), from the members of Sport Defense (the “Sellers”). Subsequent to the Closing Date, Sport Defense is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.


Sport Defense is a marketing and distribution company that leverages the unique benefits of ultra-gentle, high-water content hydrogels, manufactured by the Company, to build brands that treat various ailments of the skin caused by athletic training, such as blisters, turf burns, scrapes and skin irritations.


Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the purchase price paid to the Sellers was an aggregate of $375,000 (the “Purchase Price”) which was paid by the Company through the issuance of an aggregate of 9,375,00 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 (the “Shares”), which equates to a per share purchase price of $0.04. The Shares are “restricted securities” as such term is defined by Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Shares were allocated to the Sellers as set forth on Exhibit A to the Purchase Agreement.


Adam Levy, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, and Nachum Stein, a member of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), were each members of Sport Defense and part of the Sellers. Mr. Levy received 1,546,875 of the Shares and Mr. Stein received 3,187,500 of the Shares. Due to the potential conflict of interest that existed because of Messrs. Levy and Stein’s partial ownership of Sport Defense, the Board obtained an independent investment bank to prepare a valuation report with respect to Sport Defense. This valuation report supported the Purchase Price. Also, Mr. Stein recused himself from the vote of the Board regarding the approval to purchase Sport Defense.


The Purchase Agreement and the Sport Defense acquisition are not subject to approval by the shareholders of the Company. The Purchase Agreement contained minimal representations and warranties regarding Sport Defense and certain limited representations and warranties regarding the Company the Sellers.


This summary of certain terms of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Purchase Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is hereby incorporated into this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Form 8-K”) by reference.

Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws.


On May 26, 2020, the Company filed an amendment to the certificate of incorporation to increase the number of the Company’s authorized shares of common stock from 100,000,000 shares of common stock to 3,000,000,000 shares of common stock.
