Proposed Terms of Transaction
This term sheet (“Term Sheet”) sets forth certain material terms for the contribution of Lenders and Immune Therapeutics Inc (“IMUN”) (collectively, the “Transaction”).
Subject to the foregoing, the parties propose to negotiate in good faith to agree upon the terms of any required agreements for the Transaction that will provide for and/or incorporate the following:
|Proposed Transaction||Lenders will loan the Company a minimum of $700,000 and up to $1,500,000.00 (the “Loan”) in exchange for non-convertible promissory notes (each a “New Note” and collectively as, the “New Notes”) in favor of each Lender in the amount loaned by each Lender. The New Notes will bear simple interest at the rate of 5% per annum and mature twelve (12) months from the dates of their respective issuances. The Company, with Lender approval, will have the option to extend such maturity for an additional six (6) months. Each Lender will have the option to draw down and apply the balance of its New Note, or a portion thereof, to exercise the existing warrants held by the Lender (“Existing Warrants”) according to the terms of the Existing Warrants. As a condition to the Lenders making the Loan contemplated hereby (“Closing”), the Company will agree to attempt to resolve certain debt on its books in accordance with this term sheet. As a condition to the Company settling such debt, Forte Biotechnology Intl Corp. (“Forte”) and Cytocom, Inc. (“CYTO” or “Cytocom”) must complete the assumption of certain obligations, as herein detailed and previously agreed between the Company and Forte and CYTO, respectively.|
|Lenders||The Lenders and the amount of the Loan to be paid by each Lender are listed on Exhibit A hereto. Each Lender will execute a lock up agreement with the Company for a period of twelve (12) months. The Lenders will also file Forms 3, 4 and 5 and Schedules 13D with the SEC, as appropriate, indicating that they are acting as a group and collectively hold more than 10% of the Company’s securities and should be considered the company’s affiliates.|
|Existing Promissory Notes||The Company will offer certain existing note holders, as listed on Exhibit B hereto, (each an “Existing Note Holder,” and collectively as, the “Existing Note Holders”) the right to amend their notes (each an “Existing Promissory Note,” and collectively as, the “Existing Promissory Notes”) to (i) extend the maturity of each Existing Promissory Note to twelve (12) months from Closing, with the Company’s ability to extend such maturity on any given Existing Promissory Note an additional six (6) months with the approval of the applicable Existing Note Holder, (ii) provide for 5% interest per annum, and (iii) allow for the conversion of the principal and accrued interest of the Existing Promissory Notes at a rate of $0.05 per common share once the Company’s intended 1,000 to 1 reverse stock split is approved by FINRA (the “Reverse Split”), which conversion shall be automatic upon FINRA’s approval of the Reverse Split. In addition, upon approval of the Reverse Split by FINRA, all unexercised warrants held by Existing Note Holders will be automatically exercised either through a cash payment or by crediting the principal balance and/or accrued interest on their Existing Promissory Notes. The Existing Note Holders will agree to a six (6) month lock up of their conversion shares, excepting certain private transfers.|
|Former Employees||The Company will offer former employees who hold deferred compensation on the books of the Company the opportunity to settle a portion of the amounts owed them for common shares of the Company, as detailed in Exhibit C.

|FINRA||The Company will diligently pursue approval of the Reverse Split by FINRA.|
|Taxes||Each person and the Company will be responsible for reporting and paying their tax obligations resulting from the transactions contemplated hereby.

Immune Therapeutics announces financing and debt restructuring plan.
Orlando, Florida June 2, 2021, Immune Therapeutics Inc. (OTC-PINK: IMUND) (the “Company”) announced today that the Company has received and signed a non-binding term sheet to enter into an agreement that would provide working capital and wipe out a significant portion of its long-standing Debt.
The Company received the term sheet from existing Immune Shareholders to provide the funds necessary to complete the restructuring of Immune. According to the agreement, the investors will lend a minimum of $700,000 and a maximum of $1,500,000 to the Company in exchange for non-convertible promissory notes bearing interest at 5%.
In connection with the transactions above, to the extent a noteholder holds any warrants to purchase shares of common stock of Borrower (“Warrants”), Lender shall have the right to apply all or any portion of the Debt under this Note toward exercising such Warrants, upon the terms and subject to the conditions provided in the Warrants. Upon converting the warrants, the lenders have a one-year lock-up agreement with leak-out provisions.
In addition, the Company is negotiating with former employees, current management, directors, and other accounts payable and hopes to settle shortly. Closing the transactions contemplated by the Letter of Intent is subject to several conditions being satisfied, including completing due diligence.,
Earlier this year, the Company successfully restructured its toxic convertible promissory Note in default since May of 2018 issued by Iliad Research & Trading, L.P., for $425,000.00 on October 20, 2017. The Note carried 22% percent interest default interest and was convertible into common shares of Immune stock at a 60% discount to market.
The Note was purchased by Global Reverb Corp and a shareholder in November of 2020. The parties agreed to restructure the balance of $697,000 (reflecting the total principal, interest, and penalties) associated with the instrument. Under the terms of the restructuring, the lenders canceled the existing Iliad Note. Two new notes were issued; one to Global Reverb and one to the shareholder. The notes are for one year with a one-year extension bearing 5% interest. There is no conversion feature on the restructured balance.
The agreement provides for filing a 14A Proxy within 30 days of closing the agreement and funding. The 14A will provide for a new slate of five (5) Directors and corporate Officers, appoint Turner & Stone LLP as auditors of the Company to hold office until the conclusion of the next general meeting at which accounts are laid before the Company, and conduct any other business properly brought before the Annual Meeting. The lenders will appoint two (2) advisors to the Board until the shareholders meeting during the transaction.
“The restructuring of the notes and funding is a significant achievement for the Company, and we are thankful that our existing lenders agreed that a restructuring would benefit the Company and its growth initiatives. The restructuring improved our balance sheet and was one of the critical next steps in our strategic plan as we are continually working and uplifting. We believe that the amendment of these notes and additional funding is a key accomplishment and that our current market cap does not accurately reflect the value of the Company and the emerging opportunity in biotech,” stated Kevin Phelps, Company CEO.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors of Immune - many of whom are investing alongside you - thank you for your investment and continued shareholder support. We look forward to sharing our progress with you in the coming weeks,” Mr. Phelps concluded.
