(c)Each EVI Employee Plan has been administered and operated in compliance with its terms and with all applicable Law, including the applicable provisions of ERISA and the Code, and, there is no existing circumstance that is reasonably expected to cause any failure of such compliance.

Neither EVI nor any of its Subsidiaries has received notice of, and there are no pending investigations by any Governmental Authority with respect to, any EVI Employee Plans. 

(e)Neither EVI, nor any of its Subsidiaries, nor any of their employees or agents has, with respect to any EVI Employee Plan, engaged in or been a party to any non-exempt “prohibited transaction,” as such term is defined in Section 4975 of the Code or Section 406 of ERISA (93 P.L. 406), which could reasonably be expected to result in the imposition of a penalty assessed pursuant to Section 502(i) of ERISA (29 U.S.C. § 1132(i)) or a tax imposed by Section 4975 of the Code. Neither EVI, nor any of its Subsidiaries nor any of their employees nor any trustee, administrator or other fiduciary of such Employee Plan (or any related trust) or any agent of any of the foregoing has engaged in any transaction or acted in a manner that could, or has failed to act so as to, subject EVI, any of its Subsidiaries or any such employees or any such trustee, administrator or other fiduciary to any Liability for breach of fiduciary duty under ERISA or any other applicable Law. 

(f)With respect to each EVI Employee Plan that is an employee welfare benefit plan, whether or not subject to ERISA, there are no understandings, agreements or undertakings, written or oral, that would prevent any such plan (including any such plan covering retirees or other former employees) from being amended or terminated without Liability to EVI or any of its Subsidiaries at or at any time after the Closing. No EVI Employee Plan provides benefits after termination of employment except where the cost thereof is borne entirely by the former employee (or his or her eligible dependents or beneficiaries) or as required by Section 4980B(f) of the Code or any similar state statute or foreign Law. EVI and its Subsidiaries have complied in all respects with the applicable requirements of Section 4980B of the Code and any similar state statute or foreign Law with respect to each EVI Employee Plan that is a “group health plan” (as defined in Section 5000(b)(1) of the Code or any similar state statute or foreign Law). 

(g)Each EVI Employee Plan that is subject to Section 409A of the Code has been operated and administered in compliance with Section 409A of the Code.

Each of EVI, MTI and Parent shall furnish all non-privileged information concerning such Party as may be reasonably requested by any other Party in connection with the preparation, filing and distribution of the Form S-4 and the Proxy Statement/Prospectus. No filing of the Form S-4 will be made by Parent, and no filing of the Proxy Statement/Prospectus will be made by EVI or MTI, in each case, without providing each other Party with a reasonable opportunity to review and comment thereon.

(ii) Parent undertakes that none of the information supplied or to be supplied by or on behalf of it specifically for inclusion or incorporation by reference in the Form S-4 will: (A) at the time the Form S-4 is filed with the SEC, at the time of any amendment or supplement thereto or at the time it (or any post-effective amendment or supplement) becomes effective under the Securities Act, contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading; and (B) at the time it is first mailed to EVI’s and MTI’s stockholders or at the time of the EVI Stockholders Meeting and the time of the MTI Stockholders meeting contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they are made, not misleading.

(iii) Each of EVI and MTI undertakes that none of the information supplied or to be supplied by or on behalf of it specifically for inclusion or incorporation by reference


88


in the Form S-4 will: (A) at the time the Form S-4 is filed with the SEC, at the time of any amendment or supplement thereto or at the time it (or any post-effective amendment or supplement) becomes effective under the Securities Act, contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading; and (B) at the time it is first mailed to its stockholders or at the time of the EVI Stockholders Meeting and the time of the MTI Stockholders Meeting contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they are made, not misleading.

(iv) If at any time prior to the EVI Effective Time or MTI Effective Time, any information should be discovered by Parent, MTI or EVI that should be set forth in an amendment or supplement to the Form S-4 or the Proxy Statement/Prospectus, so that any of such documents would not contain any misstatement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, the Party that discovers such information shall promptly notify the other Parties and each of the Parties shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause an appropriate amendment or supplement describing such information to be promptly filed with the SEC and, to the extent required under applicable Law, disseminated to the stockholders of EVI and MTI; provided, however, that the delivery of such notice and the filing of any such amendment or supplement shall not affect or be deemed to modify any representation or warranty made by any party hereunder or otherwise affect the remedies available hereunder to any party.

(v) EVI, MTI and Parent shall each use their reasonable best efforts to cause the Form S-4 and the Proxy Statement/Prospectus to comply as to form in all material respects with the provisions of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act (A) at the times the Form S-4 is filed with the SEC and at the time the Form S-4 becomes effective, (B) at the times the Proxy Statement/Prospectus is mailed to EVI’s and MTI’s stockholders, and (C) at the time of the EVI Stockholders Meeting and the MTI Stockholders Meeting, and shall promptly notify each other upon the receipt of any comments, whether oral or written, from the SEC or the staff of the SEC on, or any request from the SEC or the staff of the SEC for amendments or supplements to, the Proxy Statement/Prospectus or the Form S-4, and shall provide each other with copies of all correspondence (and a summary of all substantive oral communications) with the SEC or the staff of the SEC with respect to the S-4 or the Proxy Statement/Prospectus. Each of EVI, MTI and Parent shall use its reasonable best efforts to respond as promptly as reasonably practicable to any comments of the SEC or the staff of the SEC with respect to the Proxy Statement/Prospectus or the Form S-4. Each Party shall cooperate and provide the other Parties with a reasonable opportunity to review and comment on any substantive correspondence (including responses to SEC comments) or amendments or supplements to the Proxy Statement/Prospectus or the Form S-4 prior to filing with the SEC, and shall provide to the other Parties a copy of all such filings made with the SEC.


89


(vi) Except for the purpose of disclosing any Adverse Recommendation Change, no amendment or supplement to the Proxy Statement/Prospectus or the Form S-4, nor any response to any comments or inquiry from the SEC with respect to such filings, will be made by EVI, MTI or Parent without the approval of the other Parties, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned (it being understood that it shall be unreasonable to withhold consent with respect to any amendment or supplement to the Proxy Statement/Prospectus or Form S-4 to the extent such amendment or supplement is required to be included therein so that the Proxy Statement/Prospectus or Form S-4 will not contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they are made, not misleading as may be required by Rule 10b-5 or Rule 14a-9 under the Exchange Act or Section 11 or Section 12 of the Securities Act).

(vii) Parent shall also use its reasonable best efforts to take any action (other than qualifying to do business in any jurisdiction in which it is not now so qualified or filing a general consent to service of process) reasonably required to be taken under any applicable state securities or “blue sky” laws in connection with the issuance of shares of Parent Common Stock in the Mergers, and each of MTI and EVI shall furnish all information concerning it as Parent may reasonably request in connection with any such action.

(viii) Each of Parent, MTI, and EVI, as applicable, will advise the other promptly after it receives oral or written notice of the time when the Form S-4 has become effective or any amendment or supplement thereto has been filed, the issuance of any stop order, or the suspension of the qualification of the Parent Common Stock issuable in connection with the Mergers for offering or sale in any jurisdiction.

(b) Stockholders Meetings. Each of MTI and EVI shall, as reasonably promptly as practicable after the later of the date on which the Form S-4 is declared effective under the Securities Act and the date on which the SEC confirms that it has no further comments on the Proxy Statement/Prospectus (such later date, the “SEC Clearance Date”), duly call, give notice of, convene and hold its stockholders meeting for the purpose of seeking the EVI Stockholder Approval and the MTI Stockholder Approval, respectively. Without the prior written consent of Parent, the foregoing shall be the only matter (other than procedure matters) which EVI and MTI shall propose to be acted on by the holders of Company Capital Stock at the stockholders meetings. In connection with the foregoing, each of MTI and EVI shall (x) file the definitive Proxy Statement/Prospectus with the SEC and cause the definitive Proxy Statement/Prospectus to be mailed to its stockholders as of the record date established for its stockholders meeting as promptly as practicable (and in any event within five (5) Business Days) after the SEC Clearance Date; and (y) subject to Section 7.7, solicit stockholder approval of the applicable Merger. Each of EVI and MTI shall, through its board of directors, (i) recommend to its stockholders that they give stockholder approval of the applicable Merger (the “Recommendation”), (ii) include such recommendation in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus, in each case, except to the extent that the applicable board of directors shall have made an Adverse Recommendation Change as permitted by Section 7.2(b), and (iii) solicit and use its reasonable best efforts to obtain the EVI Stockholder Approval or the MTI Stockholder Approval, as applicable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if on a date preceding the date on which or the date on which its stockholders meeting


90


is scheduled, MTI or EVI reasonably believes that it will not have enough shares of its capital stock represented (either in person or by proxy) to constitute a quorum necessary to conduct the business of such stockholders meeting, it may postpone or adjourn, or make one or more successive postponements or adjournments of, such stockholders meeting for the purpose of obtaining sufficient proxies or constituting a quorum. In addition, each of EVI and MTI may postpone or adjourn its stockholders meeting (i) with the consent of Parent, (ii) to allow reasonable additional time for the filing or mailing of any supplemental or amended disclosure that it has determined in good faith, after consultation with outside legal counsel, is necessary under applicable Law and to be disseminated and reviewed by its stockholders prior to its stockholders meeting, and (iii) solicit and use its reasonable best efforts to obtain the EVI Stockholder Approval or the MTI Stockholder Approval, as applicable. Once each of EVI and MTI have established the record date for the EVI Stockholders Meeting and MTI Stockholders Meeting, respectively, each of EVI and MTI shall not change such record date or establish a different record date without the prior written consent of Parent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), unless required to do so by applicable Law. In the event that the date of the applicable stockholders meeting as originally called is for any reason adjourned or postponed or otherwise delayed, each of EVI and MTI agrees that unless Parent shall have otherwise approved in writing, it shall use reasonable best efforts to implement such adjournment or  postponement or other delay in such a way that it does not establish a new record date for its stockholders meeting, as so adjourned, postponed or delayed, except as required by applicable Law.  Each of EVI and MTI shall, upon the reasonable request of Parent, provide the aggregate vote tally of the proxies received with respect to its stockholder approval. MTI shall, as promptly as reasonably practicable (and in no event later than the tenth (10th) Business Day following the date of this Agreement) conduct a “broker search” as contemplated by and in accordance with Rule 14a-13 promulgated under the Exchange Act with respect to the MTI Stockholders Meeting (based on a record date that is twenty (20) Business Days following the date on which such broker search is commenced). If at any time the current record date for the MTI Stockholders Meeting is not reasonably likely to satisfy the requirements of MTI Organizational Documents and applicable Law, MTI shall, in consultation with Parent, set a new record date and shall continue to comply with the “broker search” requirements of Rule 14a-13 promulgated under the Exchange Act with respect to any such new record date.

Section 7.16.Exchange Listing. Prior to the earlier of the MTI Effective Time and the EVI Effective Time, the Parties shall take all actions and do all things reasonably necessary to cause the shares of Parent Common Stock to be approved for listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, subject to official notice of issuance.

Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated by this Agreement be consummated as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible.

Title: Emotional Intelligence Ventures and Mycotopia enter a Definitive Agreement on $382M merger transaction

Subhead: Entities on track to merge under PSLY.com and list on NASDAQ Stock Exchange

May 19, 2022 from Miami, Florida and Maui, Hawaii: Ei.Ventures Inc. (“Ei”) today announced an update on the previously announced merger with Mycotopia (OTC: TPIA)

MERGER UPDATE

Ei has executed a definitive agreement with Mycotopia bringing the two entities together under PSLY.com as the companies move forward with their plan of uplisting to the NASDAQ stock exchange.

PSLY.com will be the parent entity owning all the assets of Ei and Mycotopia.

As previously reported, Ei shareholders will receive shares in PSLY.com based upon a valuation of $360 Million (subject to adjustment as set forth in the merger agreement) at the close of transaction. Mycotopia shareholders will receive shares in PSLY.com based upon a valuation of more than $23 million at the close of the transaction.

The companies anticipate closing the transaction on or about July 30, 2022.

MERGER SYNERGIES

Upon the closing of the transaction, PSLY.com will have a market value of approximately $383 million.

As Ei founder and CEO David Nikzad explains: “Of all the companies out there, we were most excited by Mycotopia. The areas where they specialize and have been working complement the Ei mission and business plan perfectly. They are helping us bring our products from the land back to the land. A journey my cofounder Jason Hobson and I began over 20 years ago. In Hawaii, we call this “going back to aina.”

Since psilocybin is legal in Jamaica and the Netherlands, Ei will be able to leverage Mycotopia’s presence in both countries as a launching pad for its psilocybin consumer and medicinal product lines. This includes Odyssey Elixir, Psilly patches, and the Mana nutraceuticals line as well as any products developed in the future. Mycotopia will be able to leverage Ei’s proprietary formulations, as well as the benefits from the recent strategic investments in Odyssey Wellness LLC Elixir and Avicanna (OTC: AVCNF).

Mycotopia founder and CEO Ben Kaplan stated: “The combination of Ei and Mycotopia is a perfect combination of synergies. We are in markets where psilocybin is already legal. And Ei has been at the forefront of psychedelic thought, formulation, and implementation since the early days. Combining forces makes sense for the shareholders of both companies, as well as the millions of people that could potentially benefit from our combined product pipeline.”

PSLY.com will continue to expand in physical markets as well as in the digital realm – building on Ei’s recent purchase of hundreds of acres in the Metaverse. Combining the physical and


digital will help Ei achieve its founding mission statement: to help over one billion people with natural, non-synthetic remedies derived from nature – not a lab.  

Ei and Mycotopia will continue to update shareholders and the market on the path to a NASDAQ listing, as well as other material updates as PSLY.com launches into the market.

Aloha on behalf of the Board,

David Nikzad

Founder and CEO, Ei.Ventures Inc.
