Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.


The Patent License Agreement (the “Agreement”) dated February 25, 2021, between SINTX Technologies, Inc. (the “Company” or “SINTX”) and O2 Design, Inc. (“O2 Design”) terminated effective November 3, 2021. On August 5, 2021, SINTX delivered a Notice of Default to O2 Design for failure to perform material covenants, conditions and undertakings required under the Agreement. The Agreement provided for a ninety (90) day period to cure the default. The ninety (90) cure period expired November 3, 2021, and the default has not been cured. Accordingly, the Agreement terminated in accordance with its terms.


Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company had granted O2 Design an exclusive world-wide license under certain of the Company’s patents to make, use, and sell face masks and mask filters incorporating the Company’s proprietary silicon nitride materials for the purpose of enhancing the anti-viral properties of the face masks and mask filters, in partial consideration of an upfront fee by O2 Design, royalties on the sale of face masks and mask filters incorporating silicon nitride materials and potential performance-based milestone payments. The Agreement also provided that the Company would be the exclusive supplier of silicon nitride to O2 Design. All rights granted to O2 Design have reverted back to the Company. There were no early termination penalties associated with the termination.
