Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
First Amendment to Merger Agreement
As previously reported, on October 30, 2019, Terra Tech Corp., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), TT Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), OneQor Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“OneQor”), Matthew Morgan, an individual, Larry Martin, an individual, and Larry Martin, solely in his capacity as the Shareholder Representative, entered into the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) pursuant to which, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein, Merger Sub will merge with and into OneQor (the “Merger”), with OneQor continuing as the surviving company.
On December 2, 2019, the parties entered into Amendment No. 1 (the “Amendment”) to the Merger Agreement. The Amendment, among other things, extends the time period by which either the Company or OneQor may terminate the Merger Agreement if the Merger has not been consummated from December 2, 2019 to January 2, 2020. The parties to the Merger Agreement now expect the Merger to close in early January 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.
Except as modified by the Amendment, the terms of the Merger Agreement in the form attached as Exhibit 10.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 4, 2019 are unchanged.
A copy of the Amendment is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1, and this description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the Amendment.
This communication contains forward-looking statements (including within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended) concerning Terra Tech, OneQor, the proposed transaction and other matters. These statements may discuss goals, intentions and expectations as to future plans, trends, events, results of operations or financial condition, or otherwise, based on current beliefs of the management of Terra Tech, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, management. Forward-looking statements generally include statements that are predictive in nature and depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, and include words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “would,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “likely,” “believe,” “estimate,” “project,” “intend,” and other similar expressions. Statements that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on current beliefs and assumptions that are subject to risks and uncertainties and are not guarantees of future performance. Actual results could differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement as a result of various factors, including, without limitation: the risk that the conditions to the closing of the transaction are not satisfied; uncertainties as to the timing of the consummation of the transaction and the ability of each of Terra Tech and OneQor to consummate the transaction; competitive responses to the transaction; unexpected costs, charges or expenses resulting from the transaction; potential adverse reactions or changes to business relationships resulting from the announcement or completion of the transaction; and legislative, regulatory, political and economic developments. The foregoing review of important factors that could cause actual events to differ from expectations should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with statements that are included herein and elsewhere, including the risk factors included in Terra Tech’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the SEC. Terra Tech can give no assurance that the conditions to the transaction will be satisfied. Except as required by applicable law, Terra Tech undertakes no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statement, or to make any other forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
