Attn:  Mr. Kirk Ferguson


Gentlemen:


Fresh Medical Laboratories, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), proposes to sell to qualified investors in a private placement an aggregate of a maximum of 3,500,000 shares and a minimum of 333,333 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Shares”), at a price of $1.50 per Share ($5,250,000 maximum and $500,000 minimum).


The offering of Shares (the “Offering”) shall be on a “best efforts”, “all or none” basis for the first 333,333 shares and a best efforts basis thereafter.  The Shares are further described in the Confidential Private Offering Memorandum dated on or about December 28, 2015 (the “Memorandum”) prepared for use in connection with the Offering. The business to be conducted by the Company and the Offering are each more fully described in the Memorandum. Certain terms not otherwise defined in this Placement Agent Agreement (the “Agreement”) shall have the same meanings as given to them in the Memorandum.  The term Memorandum includes all appendices and exhibits attached thereto, as well as any supplements, or amendments to the Memorandum.


The Shares are to be offered in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.  By its confirmation and execution of this Agreement, ACAP Financial, Inc., (the “Placement Agent”) agrees to act in the capacity of the exclusive placement agent and to exercise its commercially reasonable best efforts to place the Shares in a non-public offering in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.  It is understood and agreed that the Shares are to be offered and sold in accordance with exemptions from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”) and in accordance with exemptions from registration or qualification under the securities laws of all applicable states (“Blue Sky Laws”), in each case only to persons who are “accredited investors”, as that term is defined in Rule 501 under the 1933 Act.


The Placement Agent will be the “exclusive” placement agent with respect to the Offering described herein during the term of this Agreement, provided that such exclusivity shall not prohibit offers and sales by management of the Company in separate offerings.

Engagement of Placement Agent


2.1

Engagement.  The Company hereby grants to the Placement Agent the right to solicit subscriptions for Shares, and the Placement Agent hereby agrees to use its commercially reasonable best efforts to obtain such Subscriptions from suitable and accredited investors (as described in the Memorandum).  The engagement of the Placement Agent hereunder is an exclusive engagement, provided that such exclusivity shall not prohibit offers and sales by management of the Company in separate offerings.

2.2

Placement Agent's Fees.  As compensation for the services performed by the Placement Agent in connection with the Offering, the Company will pay the Placement Agent a cash commission of ten percent (10%) of the issuance price of all Shares sold by the Company in the Offering.  In addition to such cash compensation, the Company shall issue the Placement Agent one (1) share of the Company’s Common Stock for each ten Shares sold in the Offering, which shares shall be issued in a private placement and shall be subject to standard restrictions on transfer and restrictive legends.   No cash commission will be paid and no compensation shares will be issued unless the Offering is closed.


2.3

Separate Compensation re Debenture Conversions.  For services rendered by Placement Agent in connection with the conversion of the Convertible Debentures into shares of common stock, the Company shall issue the Placement Agent warrants to acquire up to a maximum of 2,463,460 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.65 per share (the “Placement Agent Warrants”) on the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 2.3. The term of the Placement Agent Warrants shall be for a period of thirty-six (36) months from the date of issuance, and the Placement Agent Warrants shall otherwise be in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A.  The Placement Agent will receive a Placement Agent Warrant related to one share of Common Stock for each $.81 of the principal amount of the outstanding 8% Convertible Debentures (the “Convertible Debentures”) converted into Common Stock of the Company, provided that (a) Placement Agent Warrants will be issued only once per calendar quarter on or with respect to conversions of the Convertible Debentures occurring during such calendar quarter; (b) the Placement Agent Warrants shall not relate in the aggregate to any more than 2,463,460 shares; and (c) the Placement Agent Warrants will not relate to fractional shares, and the number of share subject thereto shall be rounded down if below .5 and otherwise be rounded up.

2.4

Expenses of Placement Agent.  The Company shall reimburse the Placement Agent for its out-of-pocket expenses in connection with the Offering, provided, that such expenses shall not exceed $10,000 in the aggregate without the prior written consent of the Company.

The Company shall indemnify and hold harmless the Placement Agent and each person, if any, who controls the Placement Agent against any and all losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which they or any of them may become subject as result of any act by any person offering or selling the Shares who are not agents of, or otherwise engaged by, the Placement Agent.


The Company will not, however, be responsible for an indemnification obligation hereunder to the extent that the losses for which indemnification is sought hereunder resulted solely from actions taken or omitted to be taken by the person seeking indemnification hereunder (or its affiliates) due to such person (or affiliate)’s bad faith or willful misconduct.

5.2

Indemnification by the Placement Agent.  The Placement Agent agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and each person, if any, who controls the Company against any and all losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which they or any of them may become subject under the 1933 Act, the 1934 act and applicable Blue Sky Laws or any other statute or common law or otherwise, and to reimburse the Company and each such controlling person, if any, for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by it or them in connection with defending any actions, insofar as such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or actions solely arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in the Memorandum, or the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such statement or alleged statement or omission or alleged omission was made in reliance upon and in conformity with information furnished herein or in writing to the Company by the Placement Agent for use in connection with the Memorandum.  The indemnity agreement contained in this Section 5.2 will be in addition to any liability the Placement Agent may otherwise have.


The Placement Agent shall indemnify and hold harmless the Company and each person, if any, who controls the Company against any and all losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which they or any of them may become subject solely as result of any bad faith or willful misconduct by the Placement Agent in connection with the Offering.


5.3

Notice to Indemnifying Party.  Promptly after the receipt by an indemnified party under this Section 5 of notice of the commencement of any action for which indemnification may be sought by the indemnified party hereunder, such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against any indemnifying party under this section, notify the indemnifying party in writing of the commencement thereof.  The omission so to notify the indemnifying party will not relieve it from any liability that it may otherwise have to any indemnified party, except to the extent such omission materially prejudices the ability of the indemnifying party to defend against such action.  Upon notice of the commencement of an action against an indemnified party, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate in and assume the defense of such action, at the indemnifying party’s own expense, with counsel chosen by such indemnifying party and reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party.  No indemnifying party hereunder will be liable for the payment of any amount in settlement of any claim or action without the consent of such indemnifying party, which shall not be unreasonably withheld.


5.4

Contribution.  If the indemnification provided for in this Section 5 is, for any reason other than as specified herein, held by a court to be unavailable, and the Company or the Placement Agent has been required to pay damages as a result of a determination by a court that the Memorandum contains an untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, then the Company will contribute to the damages paid by the Placement Agent or its controlling persons, and the Placement Agent will contribute to the damages paid by the Company, but in each case only to the extent that such damages arise out of or are based upon such untrue statement or omission, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Company, on the one hand, and the Placement Agent, on the other hand, in connection with the statement or omission which resulted in such damages as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.  The relative benefits received by the Company and the Placement Agent will be deemed to be in the same proportion as the total net proceeds from the sale of the Shares (before deducting expenses) received by the Company bear to the total commissions received by the Placement Agent.  The relative fault will be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue statement of a material fact or the omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the Company or the Placement Agent and the parties' relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such untrue statements or omissions. For purposes of this section, the term “damages” will include any legal expenses reasonably incurred by the Company or the Placement Agent in connection with investigating or defending any action or claim which is the subject of the contribution provisions of this section.  No person adjudged guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation, bad faith or willful misconduct will be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation, bad faith or willful misconduct.
