Upon the Closing Date, Anthony Bruzzese M.D. shall be Purchaser’s designated director. In the event that Anthony Bruzzese M.D. ceases to be a director, the Company and the undersigned directors agree to support and vote in favor of the replacement director designated by Purchaser.|
|9.||The Company will issue a press release in substantially the form set forth in Ex. B. For a period of eighteen months from the closing date, the Company, its directors and the Purchaser agree not to make any oral or written statements that defame, disparage or in any way criticize the business reputation, practice or conduct of the Company, the Purchaser, their employees, directors and officers.|
|10.||Upon the Closing Date, the Purchaser agrees to forgo and waive any rights to any unvested options in any employment, consulting or director’s agreements.|
|11.||The Company agrees to effectuate any future exercise of options and to promptly provide to the Purchaser the shares of the Company’s stock pursuant to the option exercise (subject to any securities laws). The vested options and the exercise terms are set forth in Ex. C.|
|12.||The Purchaser agrees to abide by all securities laws in the sale or transfer of his shares of the Company’s stock. Except for any transactions pursuant to Section 13 below, Purchaser further agrees that he will not, directly or indirectly, during a period of one year from the Closing Date, (i) offer, sell, contract to sell, grant or sell any option, right or warrant for the purchase of, pledge, hypothecate, assign, lend or otherwise transfer or dispose (collectively, a “Sale”) of any of the shares an amount greater than 250,000 shares in any 30 day period (the “Volume Restriction”); (ii) enter into any swap or any other arrangement or transaction that transfers to another, in whole or in part, any of the economic characteristics of ownership of his shares, whether any such swap or transaction is to be settled by delivery of such shares, in cash or otherwise in excess of the Volume Restriction; or (iii) engage in any short selling of the Shares. Notwithstanding the above restrictions, the Purchaser may transfer options or shares to any individual or entity so long as that individual or entity agrees in writing to comply with the Volume Restriction.

|13.||If the Company shall determine to register for its own account or the account of others under the Securities Act of 1933 any of its equity securities, the Company shall include in such registration statement all of the Shares and options owned by Purchaser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any registration shall be in whole or in part an underwritten offering, the number of registrable securities to be included in such an underwriting may be reduced (pro rata among the Purchaser and the holders of the other registrable securities contemplated being included in such registrations based on the number of registrable securities requested to be registered by each of them) if and to the extent that the managing underwriter shall be of the good faith opinion (expressed in writing) that such inclusion would reduce the number of registrable securities to be offered by the Company or otherwise adversely affect such offering. Nothing herein shall be construed so as to require the Company, in connection with any proposed offering, to engage the services of an underwriter, as, for example, if the Company shall file a registration statement under Rule 415 of the Securities Act without the services or engagement of any underwriter. This “piggy-back” registration right shall not apply to an offering of equity securities registered on Form S-4 or S-8 (or their then equivalent forms) relating to securities to be issued solely in connection with an acquisition of any entity or business or securities issuable in connection with a stock option or other employee benefit plan.|
|14.||The Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Purchaser from any and all losses, liabilities, obligations, claims, contingencies, damages, costs and expenses, including all judgments, fines, amounts paid in settlements, court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of investigation that the Purchaser may suffer or incur as a result of or relating to or arising out of his actions or inactions as a director or officer of the Company.|

ImmuDyne Announces Management Changes & Sale of Legacy Manufacturing Business
New York, N.Y., January 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ImmuDyne, Inc. (OTCQB:IMMD) (“Immudyne” or the “Company”), a leader in the development and online marketing of OTC health and wellness products addressing large unmet needs, today announces the sale of its Yeast Beta Glucan manufacturing business, the resignation of Mark McLaughlin as President & CEO, and the appointment of Justin Schreiber as the Company’s President & CEO.
Sale of Yeast Beta Glucan Manufacturing Business
As Immudyne has successfully pivoted to direct-to-consumer marketing over the last two years, and this has become the Company’s primary source of revenue, the Company believes it to be in the best interest of shareholders to divest of non-core assets, such as our legacy beta glucan manufacturing business. Immudyne entered into a definitive sale agreement with a third party that will acquire 100% of the assets and liabilities of this business unit. Immudyne will receive net cash proceeds of approximately $850,000 from this transaction.
“The majority of Immudyne’s revenue growth over the past 24 months has come from our online direct to consumer marketing business,” stated Justin Schreiber, Immudyne’s incoming President & CEO. “This business is now profitable and growing with a robust pipeline of products that will be launching in 2018. Our decision to monetize our non-core manufacturing business will drastically shrink our overall corporate burn rate, increase profitability, and provide Immudyne with non-dilutive cash that we believe can be used to scale our business.”
Resignation of Mark McLaughlin as President, CEO & Director
In conjunction, Mark McLaughlin has resigned from his role as President & CEO of Immudyne and from the Company’s board of directors. Mr. McLaughlin was one of several individuals that agreed to purchase the manufacturing business from Immudyne, and he will continue to operate the business as a private company. The new private company will continue to supply yeast beta glucan to the Company on favorable terms.
“It’s been my pleasure to serve as President & CEO of Immudyne for the past 5 years,” stated Mark McLaughlin. “Immudyne’s direction has changed considerably since the acquisition of our online marketing division over 2 years ago, and I agree with the board of directors’ decision to divest of our legacy manufacturing business and refocus the company’s resources on what has become our core business. I look forward to following the success of the Company.”
Concurrent with his resignation, Mr. McLaughlin has agreed to sell 2,800,000 shares of Immudyne common stock to a third-party affiliated with Justin Schreiber and Stefan Galluppi, Immudyne’s CEO and CTO.
Appointment of Justin Schreiber as President & CEO of Immudyne, Inc.
Justin Schreiber has been appointed Immudyne’s President & Chief Executive Officer. He is also a member of Immudyne’s board of directors. Mr. Schreiber and his partner Stefan Galluppi founded and provided the bulk of the financing for Immudyne’s direct to consumer marketing business. Mr. Schreiber is the founder of JLS Ventures, LLC, a San Juan based venture investment and advisory firm that specializes in emerging growth publicly traded healthcare and technology companies. He has a deep background in small cap markets, private equity, trading, and online marketing. Mr. Galluppi is an entrepreneur with an accomplished track record in technology and direct response marketing.
“I am very excited about Immudyne’s growth prospects in the coming years,” stated Mr. Schreiber. We’ve invested heavily over the past 2 years to build what I believe is one of the best online marketing teams in the world. We intend to aggressively grow revenue, launch a variety of new products, and uplist the company to a national stock exchange in 2018.”
Immudyne plans to provide additional updates on new products and sales traction later in the first quarter.
