Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Securities Purchase Agreement

On February 5, 2014, Terra Tech Corp., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Dominion Capital LLC (the “Purchaser”).  On February 6, 2014, after the satisfaction of certain closing conditions, the Company offered and sold (the “Offering”) to the Purchaser for aggregate proceeds of $800,000 (i) a 5% Original Issue Discount Senior Secured Promissory Note (the “Note”) for a principal amount of of $842,105, and (ii) a warrant (the “Warrant”), with a term of 4 years, to purchase 1,369,277 shares of common stock, exercisable at any time by the holder of the warrant at a purchase price of equal to 90% of the-20 day VWAP of Company common stock prior to February 5th, 2014, which price the Company estimates to be approximately $0.30753 per share.  The Note issued to Purchaser on February 6, 2014, is due August 5, 2015.

Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Purchaser shall purchase up to $6,550,000 in subscription amount of the Notes, which corresponds to an aggregate of up to $6,894,737 in principal amount of the Notes.  The Purchase Agreement further provides that prospective Note purchases will occur in 11 tranches, the second tranche will be for $800,000 and each additional tranche will be for $550,000.  Beginning August 5, 2014, and continuing on each of the following 11 successive months thereafter, the Company is obligated to pay 1/12th of the face amount of the Notes and accrued interest.  So long as the Company is not in default under any Note, each tranche will be closed on every 30th day following the previous closing date. The Company has agreed to (i) reimburse Purchaser a due diligence fee of $50,000, which shall be paid in increments of $10,000 at the closing of each tranche, until the $50,000 is paid in full, and (ii) $20,000 for Purchaser’s legal fees in connection with the Offering.

The Notes Issuable under the Purchase Agreement

Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, each Note accrues interest at a rate of 12% per annum and is due 18 months after issunace.  All principal and interest due and owing under each Note is convertible into shares of common stock of the Company, at any time at the election of the holder thereof, at a conversion price equal to 90% of the 20-day VWAP of company common stock prior to February 5, 2014, which price the Company estimates to be approximately $0.30753 per share.

The Company may prepay any portion of the principal amount of the Notes and any accrued and unpaid interest by paying 125% of the sum of the then outstanding principal amount of the Notes.

If on the 180th day following February 7, 2014, the closing bid price for the Company’s common stock is below $0.30 per share, the conversion price will automatically adjust to 70% of the lowest VWAP in the 15 Trading Days prior to the 180th  following February 7, 2014.

If the Company is in default under the terms of any Note, the holder of a Note may elect to convert the amount outstanding on such Note into shares of common stock, at the holder’s election, at a conversion price of $0.30 per share or at 60% of the lowest VWAP during the 30-trading-day period immediately prior to the applicable conversion date.  Additionally, all overdue accrued and unpaid interest under the Notes shall entail a late fee at an interest rate equal to the lesser of 18% per annum or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law which shall accrue daily from the date such interest is due under the Notes through and including the date of actual payment in full.

The Warrants under the Purchase Agreement

Registration Rights Agreement

In connection with the Offering, the Company also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, dated February 5, 2014, with the Purchasers (the “Registration Rights Agreement”).  Under the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company is obligated to register all shares of common stock underlying the Notes and the Warrant for resale in a registration statement to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission not later than April 15, 2014.  The Company will enter into similar registration rights agreements with successive purchasers of the Notes.

Security Agreement

In connection with the Offering, the Company, GrowOp Technology, Ltd., a Nevada corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“GrowOp Technology”), and Edible Garden Corp., a Nevada corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Edible Garden”), entered into a Security Agreement, dated February 5, 2014, with the Purchaser (the “Security Agreement”). Under the Security Agreement, the Company, GrowOp Technology and Edible Garden Corp., granted security interests in all of their respective assets, rights, interests and after-acquired assets and properties as collateral for repayment of the principal and interest owed under the debentures.  Additionally, under the Security Agreement all the shares of common stock the Company holds of GrowOp Technology and Edible Garden Corp. are pledged as collateral for repayment of the principal and interest owed under the Notes. The Company will enter into similar security agreements with successive purchasers of the Notes.
