Item 8.01 Other Events.


As previously disclosed, effective October 13, 2015, Global Digital Solutions, Inc., (“GDSI”) a New Jersey corporation entered into a Share Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “SPSA”) dated October 8, 2015 with Joao Alberto Bolzan and Jose Carlos Bolzan, both Brazilian residents (collectively, the “Sellers”) and Grupo Rontan Electro Metalurgica, S.A., a limited liability company duly organized and existing under the laws of Federative Republic of Brazil (“Rontan”), pursuant to which the Sellers agreed to sell 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Rontan (the “Rontan Securities”) to GDSI on the closing date. As disclosed under the SPSA, the closing was subject to specific conditions to closing, which were waivable by GDSI.


GDSI believes that it has satisfied or otherwise waived the conditions to closing and on April 1, 2016 advised the Sellers of its intention to close the SPSA and demanded delivery of the Rontan Securities. The Sellers, however, have notified GDSI that they intend to terminate the SPSA. GDSI believes that the Sellers have no right to terminate the SPSA and that notice of termination by the Sellers was not permitted under the terms of the SPSA. GDSI has engaged U.S. and Brazilian counsel to enforce GDSI’s rights and remedies under the SPSA and applicable law, including, but not limited to injunctive relief, specific performance and damages and repayment of expenses associate with the enforcement of the provisions of the SPSA.


A copy of the SPSA is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1. The description of certain terms of the SPSA set forth herein does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the provisions of the SPSA.
