On March 29, 2022, one of the investors in Stryve’s January 2022 private offering sent the Company a letter alleging that the Company has breached “the representations and warranties the Company” made to investors in the definitive agreement. Although Stryve intends to vigorously defend itself against these allegations, Stryve cannot at this time predict whether any litigation will be filed, predict the likely outcome of any future litigation, reasonably determine either the probability of a material adverse result or any estimated range of potential exposure, or reasonably determine how this matter or any future matters might impact our business, our financial condition, or our results of operations, although such impact, including the costs of defense, as well as any judgments or indemnification obligations, among other things, could be materially adverse to us.


The Company has received a letter from a person purporting to be counsel to certain investors in Stryve LLC and the Seller, which letter alleges claims against the Company, Stryve LLC, and the Seller concerning the distribution of Stryve’s equity by the Seller in connection with the Business Combination Agreement by which Stryve acquired Stryve LLC. The Company believes that such allegations are without merit and intends to defend against any claims that may be filed on account of such allegations. The Company is not able at this time to quantify its exposure for any possible damages arising out of any such claims that may arise from these allegations.


The Company may be a party to routine claims brought against it in the ordinary course of business. After consulting with legal counsel, the Company does not believe that the outcome of any such pending or threatened litigation will have a material adverse effect on its financial condition or results of operations. However, as is inherent in legal proceedings, there is a risk that an unpredictable decision adverse to the Company could be reached. The Company records legal costs associated with loss contingencies as incurred. Settlements are accrued when, and if, they become probable and estimable.


Registration Rights Agreements


The Company is a party to various registration rights agreements with certain stockholders where it may be required to register securities for such stockholders in certain circumstances.
