Sovereign Lithium, Inc. (formerly Great American Energy, Inc.) (“Great American”, “Southern Bella”, the “Company” or the “Registrant”) was incorporated in Delaware on February 22, 2007.
Uptone Pictures, Inc. (“Uptone”) was incorporated in North Carolina on March 27, 2006. Uptone is an entertainment company, which specializes in the creation, production and distribution of content.
On December 17, 2010 (the “Closing”), Southern Bella, Inc., closed a reverse take-over transaction by which it acquired Uptone. Pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) between the Registrant and Uptone, Viola J. Heitz, shareholder of Southern Bella, and Wendi Davis, sole shareholder of Uptone, the Registrant acquired 100% of Uptone’s issued and outstanding common stock.
On May 13, 2011, Southern Bella entered into a Subsidiary Put Option Agreement (the “Put Option Agreement”) with Wendi and Michael Davis (the “Purchasers”). As of May 13, 2011, the Purchasers were members of Southern Bella’s Board of Directors (the “Board”). On such date, the Purchasers were the beneficial holders of 8,166,667 pre-reverse split shares of Southern Bella’s common stock, par value $0.000001 per share, or 94% of Southern Bella’s issued and outstanding common stock (the “Davis Shares”). Subsequently, the Davis Shares were sold to Geoff Evett pursuant to the terms of a stock purchase agreement further described below. Under the terms of the Put Option Agreement, Southern Bella acquired a put option (the “Put Option”) obligating the Purchasers to purchase Southern Bella’s holdings of 100 shares of common stock of Uptone, such shares constituting all of the issued and outstanding shares of Uptone (the “Uptone Shares”) for a total price of $100. Under the terms of the Put Option, Southern Bella is required to obtain Board and stockholder approval prior exercising the Put Option. The Put Option will expire on May 13, 2014 (the “Option Termination Date”), unless it is terminated earlier under the terms of the Put Option Agreement.
Pursuant to the terms of the Put Option Agreement, the Purchasers agreed to indemnify Southern Bella for any costs, expenses, liabilities or claims incurred by Uptone before, by and through and after the option period (the period from May 13, 2011 to the Option Termination Date or earlier termination as provided in the Put Option Agreement).
Southern Bella entered into the Put Option Agreement in connection with a stock purchase agreement that the Purchasers separately entered into with Geoff Evett on May 13, 2011 (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”), which closed on May 16, 2011 (the “SPA Closing”). On the SPA Closing, the Purchasers sold 100% of the Davis Shares to Mr. Evett for an aggregate cash payment of $220,000. On the SPA Closing, the Purchasers, who were previously Southern Bella’s officers, resigned from such positions and Mr. Evett was appointed as President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Secretary. On the Closing, the Purchasers submitted resignation letters from their positions as directors which were effective 10 days after the filing and mailing to Southern Bella’s stockholders of an Information Statement pursuant to Section 14(f) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 14f-1 promulgated thereunder. Mr. Evett became Southern Bella’s sole director on May 27, 2011.
On June 29, 2011, Southern Bella approved the Certificate of Amendment to change its name to Great American Energy, Inc. (“Great American”). The name change was effective as of August 26, 2011.
On August 30, 2011, the Company effected a 79-for-1 stock-on-stock dividend for all of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock on the record date of August 29, 2011 (the “Dividend”).
