Bridge Loan and Proposed Stock Transactions

On December 28, 2017, Nemus Bioscience, Inc. (“Nemus”) entered into a Secured Promissory Note and Security Agreement for a convertible loan (the “Bridge Loan”) with Emerald Health Sciences Inc. (“Emerald”). The Bridge Loan provides for aggregate gross proceeds to Nemus of up to $900,000 and is secured by all of Nemus’ assets. Nemus received proceeds of $500,000 on December 28, 2017 and the Bridge Loan provides for the funding of the remaining $400,000 on January 16, 2018, subject to the conditions described below. Unless earlier converted into Nemus common stock (“Common Stock”), the Bridge Loan bears interest at 12% per annum and matures on June 30, 2018. The initial conversion price is $0.10 per share of Common Stock. Nemus intends to use the net proceeds for general corporate purposes, including, without limitation, to pay down certain existing obligations as specified under the Secured Promissory Note and other working capital items.

The foregoing description of the Secured Promissory Note and the Security Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the Secured Promissory Note attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and the Security Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2, each of which is incorporated herein by reference.

On December 28, 2017, in connection with the Bridge Loan, Nemus executed a binding term sheet with Emerald that contemplates certain stock purchase agreements under which Emerald would acquire the outstanding preferred stock of Nemus held by certain holders of Nemus’ preferred stock (“Certain Preferred Stockholders”) and Emerald would commit to purchase or facilitate the purchase from Nemus of not less than $2,500,000 of Common Stock at $0.10 per share, plus warrants exercisable at $0.10 per share of Common Stock. Upon the closing of such a proposed private placement, the term sheet contemplates that any amounts outstanding under the Bridge Loan would automatically convert to Common Stock at a conversion price of $0.10, and together with the closing of the preferred stock acquisition, Emerald would own a majority of the equity interest in Nemus. Simultaneously with such closings, the current members of the Board of Directors of Nemus (the “Board”) would agree to appoint Emerald nominees to the Board and all of the current members of the Board except for Dr. Brian Murphy would subsequently tender their resignation. The closing of the proposed private placement is conditioned on the conversion of all remaining preferred stock of Nemus and satisfactory completion of scientific and operational due diligence. If Nemus does not receive all of the conversion notices or if Emerald does not purchase all the preferred stock of the Certain Preferred Stockholders by January 15, 2018, does not close the private placement by February 28, 2018 or elects not to proceed with the private placement in its discretion, Emerald has no obligation to make available any amounts then remaining unfunded under the Bridge Loan.

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The information set forth under Item 1.01 above is hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 2.03.

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On December 29, 2017, Nemus issued a press release announcing the Bridge Loan and the proposed stock transactions. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1. The information in this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any of Nemus’ filings under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, whether made before or after the date hereof and regardless of any general incorporation language in such filings, except to the extent expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
