 Page 1 of 4 
 

 

Whereas Vegalab Delaware has never conducted any commercial business - it was only formed to hold the aforementioned Registrations and Trademarks;

 

Whereas Selakovic has requested from Vegalab S.A. the assignable exclusive marketing and sales rights in the Western Hemisphere to the whole line of Vegalab Products as it currently exists with the understanding that the line of products may be added to, deleted or modified from time to time;

 

Whereas the Vegalab Products are manufactured in Korea using trade secret formulations and patented manufacturing equipment by the aforementioned Ecowin, Inc., a Korean corporation;

 

Whereas Vegalab S.A. and Ecowin, Inc. acknowledge Mr. Selakovic's prowess in generating sales of the Vegalab Products; and, understand that, based on this Agreement, Selakovic and any potential assignee of Selakovic intend to change their position and invest significant time and money to develop the market in the Western Hemisphere for the Vegalab Products in the hope of reaping very high monetary rewards;

 

Now, therefore, it is agreed, by and in consideration of $10.00 and other valuable consideration the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged to be sufficient, as follows:

 

1.Vegalab S.A. does hereby grant to Selakovic the exclusive right to the Western Hemisphere territory to receive, store, reconstitute, ship, market, distribute, and sell Vegalab Products anywhere in the Western Hemisphere.

 

2.It is anticipated and agreed that Selakovic may assign this Agreement to any entity Selakovic deems in his sole discretion to be in the best interest of promoting and selling the Vegalab Products in the Western Hemisphere; and, Selakovic or his assignee may again reassign same if Selakovic or assignee determines in his, her or its sole discretion that a subsequent reassignment of all or a part of the rights granted hereby is in the best interest of all of the parties hereto . Any assignee of Selakovic shall have all the same rights Selakovic has under the terms of this Agreement.

3.Vegalab S.A., in order to facilitate the orderly distribution and sale of the Vegalab Products in the Western Hemisphere does, simultaneous with the execution of this Agreement, hereby agree to transfer 100% of the membership shares in Vegalab Delaware to Selakovic or his designee forthwith as part of the consideration for this Agreement.

 

4.Selakovic and any assignee of Selakovic agree to continue on with the registration of Vegalab Products in the United States and other countries in the Western Hemisphere and agree to keep the Registrations and Trademarks already in place current, all as Selakovic and any assignee of Selakovic deem economically viable in their sole and reasonable discretion.

 

5.Ecowin, Inc., by its signature hereto, acknowledges that HPC Acquisitions, Inc., a Nevada corporation, is a worthy assignee.1

 

6.Ecowin, Inc., by its signatures hereto, acknowledges that Selakovic and his assignee(s) shall be entitled to pay the “favored nation” price for Vegalab Products for so long as this Agreement is in good standing on 30 day terms, 2% in 10 days, unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
