The Company’s General Counsel’s employment agreement contains a 12 month severance payment in the instance of a termination without cause, as defined therein.


The QSAM License Agreement requires multiple milestone-based payments including: $60,000 and other expense reimbursements within 60 days of signing, which have been paid, up to $150,000 as the Technology advances through multiple stages of clinical trials, and $1.5 million upon commercialization. IGL will also receive equity in the form of a warrant in QSAM equal to 5% of the company to be issued within 60 days of signing, which has not yet been issued. Upon commercialization, IGL will receive an on-going royalty equal to 4.5% of Net Sales, as defined in the License Agreement, and up to 50% of any Sublicense Consideration received by QSAM, as defined in the License Agreement. QSAM will also pay for ongoing patent filing and maintenance fees, and has certain requirements to defend the patents against infringement claims. As of December 31, 2020, the Company has paid $60,000 under the QSAM License Agreement representing the full upfront license fee, as well $60,000 in expense reimbursements required under that agreement.
