PROPOSAL I

PLAN OF EXCHANGE TO ACQUIRE GEL-DEL

 

On April 10, 2015 our Board of Directors and majority shareholders, believing it to be in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders, approved a Plan of Exchange with Gel-Del whereby through a stock exchange PetVivo will acquire all outstanding capital stock of Gel-Del in exchange for 4,150,000 shares of common stock of PetVivo. After this stock exchange is completed, Gel-Del will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of PetVivo, and PetVivo will then have 11,850,314 shares of common stock outstanding. This Plan of Exchange will become effective upon its filing with the Secretary of State of Nevada.

 

Gel-Del is a biomaterial and medical device development and manufacturing company with its offices and production facilities in St. Paul, Minnesota, and was founded in 1999 by its Chief Executive Officer, Dr. David B. Masters. Dr. Masters developed Gel-Del’s innovative proprietary biomaterials which simulate a body’s cellular tissue and thus can be readily and effectively utilized to manufacture implantable therapeutic medical devices. The chief advantage of Gel-Del’s biomaterials is their enhanced biocompatibility with living tissues throughout the body. Through this stock exchange, PetVivo will have acquired all Gel-Del’s technology and related patents and other intellectual property (IP) and production techniques, as well as Gel-Del’s modern and secure biomedical product manufacturing facilities in St. Paul, Minnesota.

 

This acquisition of Gel-Del by the Company was made pursuant to a Stock Exchange Agreement dated November 21, 2015, which contained certain conditions to be performed by both parties prior to the completion of this stock exchange business combination. As of April 10, 2015, all conditions were satisfied or waived by both parties. The shareholders of Gel-Del approved this Stock Exchange Agreement at a Gel-Del shareholder meeting duly held on March 25, 2015.

 

Reason For Stock Exchange

 

PetVivo was founded in 2013 by its current management, John Lai and John Dolan, and is based in suburban Minneapolis, Minnesota. PetVivo is a biomedical device company which has been primarily engaged in the business of adapting human biomedical technology for products to be introduced for commercial sale in the veterinary market to treat pets and other animals suffering from arthritis and other painful afflictions. PetVivo’s initial product, now being commercialized, is a medical device featuring injections of patented gel-like biomaterials into the afflicted body parts of pets or other animals suffering from osteoarthritis. The technology and manufacturing capability of this product was developed by Gel-Del and licensed to PetVivo for use to treat dogs and other animals, but not for treatment of human afflictions. While working together relating to this license agreement, PetVivo and Gel-Del determined to combine the two companies through a stock exchange merger for the purpose of creating one combined entity utilizing Gel-Del technology to produce, market and sell medical products based on Gel-Del technology for both animals and humans. After lengthy negotiations during 2014, PetVivo and Gel-Del entered into a definitive agreement for this merger.

PROPOSAL II

RATIFYING APPOINTMENT OF NEW DIRECTORS

 

On April 10, 2015, our Board of Directors appointed two new directors, Dr. David B. Masters and Randall A. Meyer, to serve until our next regular meeting of shareholders or until their successors are elected and shall qualify. Also on April 10, 2015, our majority shareholders, believing it to be in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders, adopted a resolution to ratify the appointment of these two new directors as of the effectiveness of the Plan of Exchange between PetVivo and Gel-Del.

 

David B. Masters, Ph.D. has been the Chief Executive Officer of Gel-Del since its founding by him in 1999. Dr. Masters is an entrepreneur, inventor, biochemist and biomaterials expert having reputable credentials from Rutgers, Harvard, University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic. He has over 30 years extensive experience in biomaterials development, manufacturing and commercialization with more than twenty-five issued or pending patents.

 

Randall A. Meyer has been the Chief Operating Officer of Gel-Del for the past seven years. Mr. Meyer has over 25 years leadership experience in medical device development and commercialization with an emphasis on applying his extensive management expertise as a CEO, COO and Board Director to promote the successful growth of early stage medical technology companies.

 

The Company currently does not compensate its directors for providing services as a member of our Board of Directors. In the event the Company adopts any future compensation or other benefit plan for directors, Messrs. Masters and Meyer will benefit on the same basis as all other directors.

  

VOTING AND OTHER SHAREHOLDER RIGHTS

 

Holders of our common stock are entitled to one vote for each share held of record on all matters to be voted on by the shareholders. Accordingly, the holders of in excess of 50% of the aggregate number of shares of common stock outstanding will be able to elect all of the directors of the Company and to approve or disapprove any other matter submitted to a vote of all shareholders. The holders of our common stock are entitled to receive ratably such dividends, if any, as may be declared by the Board of Directors out of funds legally available. Holders of our common stock have no cumulative voting rights. Holders of our common stock have no preemptive rights to purchase the Company's common stock or rights or interests therein such as options and warrants. There are no conversion rights or redemption or sinking fund provisions with respect to our common stock.
