Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On April 19, 2019, the Company’s nutraceutical division, which produces and distributes cannabinoid-based lifestyle and wellness products, entered into a private-label manufacturing and supply agreement for the purchase of its proprietary cannabidiol (CBD)-based chewing gum with a leading direct-to-consumer distributor for worldwide distribution.

 

The purchase order describes an ongoing relationship, with an initial one year term, between AXIM and the distributor and allows for exclusivity to specified sales channels if the distributor meets specified minimum order requirements. The initial order alone represents 1.5 million pieces of AXIM’s gum product. With its recently acquired patents for oral compositions containing cannabinoids and topical cream, along with its patent on chewing gum containing cannabinoids including CBD, this order represents a large sales momentum shift as AXIM aims to expand the Company’s nutraceutical division and create revenue for the company.

 

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

 

On April 23, 2019, the Company announced that its nutraceutical division entered into a purchase order agreement for the purchase of 50,000 boxes (1.5 million individual pieces) of its proprietary cannabidiol (CBD)-based chewing gum with a leading direct-to-consumer company for distribution throughout the United States.
