Item 8.01 Other Events.

As previously disclosed in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2022 (the “Quarterly Report”), on July 19, 2022, People’s California, LLC (“People’s California”), the sellers of People’s First Choice, LLC (“People’s First Choice”), filed an action against the Company in the Superior Court for the State of California, styled People's California, LLC v. Unrivaled Brands, Inc. The complaint named the defendants as the Company and alleged breach of contract and breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing stemming from the Company’s alleged breach of certain agreements with People’s California in connection with the acquisition of People’s First Choice. On September 20, 2022, the Company filed a cross-complaint against People’s California, Frank Kavanaugh, Jay Yadon, and Bernard Steimman for fraud, negligent misrepresentation, and breach of contract related to the sale of People’s First Choice and other assets to the Company in November 2021.

Also as previously disclosed in the Company’s Quarterly Report, on August 1, 2022, People’s California filed an action against certain current and former officers and directors of the Company in the Superior Court for the State of California, styled People’s California, LLC v. Nicholas Kovacevich, et al. The complaint named the defendants derivatively on behalf of the Company and listing the Company as a nominal defendant alleging claims for breach of fiduciary duty, abuse of control, self-dealing, corporate waste, and unjust enrichment based on a series of corporate transactions and management decisions.

On March 6, 2023, the Company entered into a binding term sheet to resolve pending litigation matters with People’s California. Upon execution of the binding term sheet, the parties agreed to inform the court of the settlement and request a stay of all pending litigation, including the derivative action against former management. The settlement remains subject to final documentation; the terms will be disclosed to the extent required by law.

Certain information in this Current Report on Form 8-K is forward-looking, including our projections as to the timing of final court approval of the settlement, the amount and timing of the charge relating to the proposed settlement and the timing of payments under the proposed settlement. Forward-looking information is based on management's estimates, assumptions and projections, and is subject to significant uncertainties and other factors, many of which are beyond the Company's control. Important risk factors could cause actual future results and other future events to differ materially from those currently estimated by management, including, but not limited to: obtaining court approval of the proposed settlement, the amount and timing of the proposed settlement, and whether the proposed settlement is appealed.
