Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

As previously disclosed, in June 2016, Coretec Industries LLC, the wholly-owned subsidiary of The Coretec Group Inc. (the “Company”), signed an exclusive licensing agreement (the “Exclusive Licensing Agreement”) with the NDSU Research Foundation (“NDSU/RF”), pursuant to which the Company had sponsored North Dakota State University to provide research and to license certain technologies from August 14, 2015 to June 30, 2017. The Company was to provide compensation to NDSU/RF and NDSU/RF was to provide certain deliverables to the Corporation. However, a dispute arose between the Corporation and NDSU/RF regarding compensation and deliverables (the “Dispute”).

 

On June 29, 2018, the Company and Coretec Industries LLC (collectively, the “Coretec”) entered into a settlement agreement and general release (the “Settlement Agreement”) with NDSU/RF to resolve the Dispute, pursuant to which Coretec and NDSU/RF shall fully and forever release each other from the Exclusive Licensing Agreement and mutually release each other of all claims in connection therewith.

 

The foregoing description of the Settlement Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Settlement Agreement dated June 29, 2018, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report and incorporated by reference herein.
