Item 8.01 Other Events

 

On May 5, 2022, NextPlay Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing the completion of the acquisition of certain assets from Fighter Base Publishing, Inc. (“FBP”) and Token IQ, Inc. (“TIQ”), both of which entities are owned and controlled by Mark Vange, the Company’s Chief Technology Officer. As previously disclosed in those Current Reports on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on August 23, 2021 and August 25, 2021, the Company entered into Intellectual Property Purchase Agreements with FBP and TIQ on August 19, 2021, pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue shares of its common stock (as more specifically set forth below) to FBP and TIQ as consideration for the purchase of certain assets from such companies (the “Acquisitions”). Closing of both Acquisitions was contingent upon approval of the Company’s stockholders, which was obtained at the Special Meeting of Stockholders of the Company held on January 28, 2022, and certain other closing conditions.

 

The Acquisitions both closed on May 2, 2022, and pursuant to the terms of the respective Intellectual Property Purchase Agreements with FBP and TIQ, the Company issued FBP and TIQ 1,666,6667 and 1,250,000 shares of Company common stock, respectively.

 

A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Additional information regarding the Acquisitions, including the terms of the Intellectual Property Purchase Agreements with FBP and TIQ, is included in those Current Reports on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Commission on August 23, 2021 and August 25, 2021 and the Definitive Schedule 14A Proxy Statement filed by the Company with the Commission on January 3, 2022.
