As part of the terms and conditions of the Option and Collaboration Agreement ( “Agreement”) entered into on December 19, 2013, by and between ZIVO Bioscience, Inc. and a global animal health company (Collaborator), the Registrant is required to conduct a field study, with appropriate controls, to determine if the Registrant’s bioactive compounds exhibit efficacy in addressing bovine mastitis, a common condition afflicting dairy cows that results in milk production losses, as well as analytics to isolate and characterize such bioactive compounds to the satisfaction of the collaborator.

If the terms and conditions of the Agreement are met and subsequent interactions with the Collaborator result in an approved study design and pathogen selection, the Collaborator can, after the field study is completed and 90-day investigation of test results has taken place, commence to evaluate and negotiate a potential option payment to the Registrant to continue licensing deliberations or to further investigate and research the bioactive compounds.

On or about September 6, 2017, the Registrant received final study design approval from Collaborator and officially commenced work on the field study contemplated by the Agreement, also notifying its research partner, Dairy Experts LLC, of same.

On September 11, 2017, the Registrant released a Press Release dated September 11, 2017, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1.
