Historical Overview of the Company


Past Nutraceutical Company


The Company was founded as DJH International, Inc. on October 28, 1996. It changed its name to eFoodSafety.com, Inc. following the October 16, 2000 acquisition of Global Procurement Systems, Inc. The Company acquired Ozone Safe Food, Inc. for common stock on October 29, 2003. The Company's business plan was to provide methods and products to ensure safety of marketed fruits and vegetables worldwide. On February 4, 2004, the Company registered shares of common stock with the SEC. It began publicly trading on the OTC Bulletin Board under the trading symbol EFSF.


With unrealized demand for the Company’s produce sterilization methods and software tracking products, the Company changed its business plan and acquired Knock-Out Technologies, Ltd. and MedElite, Inc. in May 2004 and August 2005, respectively. Knock-Out Technologies, Ltd. was a developer of natural products using organic, non-toxic, food grade material. MedElite, Inc. was the exclusive distributor of Talsyn-CI Scar Cream in the United States, a topical scar- reducing cream. The Company's strategy was to market nutraceutical products. The Company sold its Ozone Safe Food, Inc. operations in August 2005. In November 2006, the Company formed Cinnergen, Inc. to manufacture and market a non-prescription liquid nutritional supplement designed to promote healthy glucose metabolism and purEffect, Inc. to manufacture and market purEffect - a four-step non-prescription acne treatment. On March 10, 2006, the Company licensed the marketing rights for purEffect to Charlston Kentrist 41 Direct, Inc. (“CK41”). In July 2007, the Company formed, I-Boost to market products to support the immune system. In March 2008, Cinnechol, Inc. was formed to promote cardiovascular health. In February 2009, the Company sold the rights to the purEffect product to CK41 for an equity position in CK41 and future royalty compensation. In March 2009, Freedom2 Holdings, Inc. was acquired to manufacture and market products including Infinitink®, a tattoo ink designed to be easily removed.


On January 20, 2009, the Company changed its name to Nuvilex, Inc. Its trading symbol on the OTC Bulletin Board® was also changed to NVLX.


Current Biotechnology Company


On May 26, 2011, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (“SG Austria APA”) with SG Austria Private Limited (“SG Austria”) to purchase 100% of the assets and liabilities of SG Austria. As a result, Austrianova Singapore Private Limited ("Austrianova Singapore") and Bio Blue Bird AG ("Bio Blue Bird"), wholly-owned subsidiaries of SG Austria, were to become wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company on the condition that the Company pay SG Austria $2.5 million and 100,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock and for the Company to receive 100,000 shares of Austrianova Singapore’s common stock and nine Bio Blue Bird bearer shares.


Through two addenda to the SG Austria APA, the closing dates were extended. In June 2013, the Company and SG Austria entered into a Third Addendum to the SG Austria APA (“Third Addendum”). Under the terms of the Third Addendum, the transaction contemplated by the SG Austria APA changed substantially. The Third Addendum resulted in the Company acquiring 100% of the equity interests in Bio Blue Bird and receiving a 14.5% equity interest in SG Austria. In addition, the Company received nine bearer shares of Bio Blue Bird. Under the Third Addendum, the Company paid: (i) $500,000 to retire all outstanding debt of Bio Blue Bird; and (ii) $1.0 million to SG Austria. The Company also paid SG Austria $1,572,193. The Third Addendum returned the original 100,000,000 shares of common stock to the Company treasury and the 100,000 Austrianova Singapore shares to SG Austria.


The acquisition of Bio Blue Bird provided the Company with exclusive, worldwide licenses to use a proprietary cellulose-based live cell encapsulation technology for the development of treatments for all forms of cancer using certain types of cells. The licenses are pursuant to patents licensed from Bavarian Nordic A/S and GSF-Forschungszentrum fur Umwelt u. Gesundeit GmbH. These licenses enable the Company to carry out the research and development of cancer treatments that are based upon the live cell encapsulation technology known as “Cell-in-a-Box ®.”


In July 2013, the Company also acquired from Austrianova Singapore the exclusive, worldwide license to use the cellulose-based live cell encapsulation technology for the development of a treatment for diabetes and the use of Austrianova Singapore’s “Cell-in-a-Box ®” trademark for this technology (“Diabetes Licensing Agreement”). The Company made its first $1,000,000 payment to secure the Diabetes Licensing Agreement on October 30, 2013. The second and final payment of $1,000,000 was made on February 25, 2014.
