In 2010, Arcadia Biosciences, Inc. (the “Company”) formed Limagrain Cereal Seeds LLC (“Limagrain Cereal”), a joint venture company with their strategic partner and collaborator in wheat, Vilmorin & Cie, a French corporation (“Limagrain”), focused on the development and commercialization of improved wheat seed in North America.

A U.S. wholly owned subsidiary of Limagrain (“VUSA”) owned a 65% interest and the Company owned a 35% interest in the joint venture. After several years of productive development activities, both the Company and Limagrain remain committed to a partnership to develop and commercialize wheat-based products but have determined that the current joint venture arrangement is not the best structure through which to carry out their future collaboration. The parties are working diligently to determine the optimal forward construct.

In order to provide for a new construct, the Company, Limagrain and VUSA entered into an exchange agreement pursuant to which the Company transferred to VUSA the Company’s entire membership interest in Limagrain Cereal and VUSA transferred to the Company 1,843,888 shares of the Company’s common stock held by VUSA, effective as of March 31, 2017. The Company cancelled and retired these shares upon receipt.
