Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets

As previously reported on a Current Report on Form 8-K that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 7, 2020, on December 31, 2019Canfield Medical Supply, Inc., a Colorado corporation (the "Company"), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") with SBG Acquisition Inc. ("Merger Sub"), a Nevada Corporation wholly-owned by the Company, and Splash Beverage Group, Inc. a Nevada corporation ("Splash") pursuant to which Merger Sub shall be merged with and into Splash (the "Merger") with Splash as the surviving company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

The closing of the Merger took place on March 31, 2020 (the "Closing") and on March 31, 2020, the Company filed Articles of Conversion/Exchange Merger with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada pertaining to the merger of Merger Sub into Splash, with Splash as the surviving entity wholly owned by the Company, and the Merger became effective on that date.

Splash, a corporation incorporated under the laws of Nevada, specializes in manufacturing, distribution, selling and marketing of various beverages across multiple channels, operating in both the non-alcoholic and alcoholic segments, leveraging efficiencies and diluting risk.

In connection with the Merger, Splash entered into Lock-Up Agreements with officers, directors, employees, consultants and beneficial owners of more than 10% of the outstanding shares of Splash prior to the Merger (the "Lock-Up Holder"). Pursuant to the Lock-Up Agreements, the Lock-Up Holder agreed that for a period of 180 days ("Lock-Up Period") from the Merger the Lock-Up Holder will not offer, pledge, sell or otherwise transfer or dispose of any shares of the common stock of the Company that the Lock-Up Holder receives in connection with the Merger( the "Lock-Up Securities"). Upon termination of the Lock-up Period the Lock-Up Holder may release from the sale restrictions in the Lock-Up agreements contained up to twenty-five percent (25%) of the Lock-up Securities during ninety (90) days after expiration of Lock Up Period and (ii) release from the sale restrictions contained in the Lock-Up Agreement all remaining Lock-up Securities six months after the Lock Up Period (collectively these six months are, the "Leak-Out Period").

The Lock-up Securities may be released from the sale restrictions contained in the Lock-Up Agreement at any time following the Lock-up Period (the "Early L/U Release") when both (a) the volume of Canfield shares traded are at least 50,000 shares of common stock per day (the "Volume Condition") and (b) the closing price per share determined on a volume weighted average price basis equals not less than 300% of deemed value per share (the "Price Condition") for 20 consecutive trading days (the "Trading Term Condition") have been met. The "deemed value per share" shall equal the aggregate Canfield enterprise value post-Merger divided by the total number of shares outstanding but in any event shall be not less than $1.00 per share (before giving effect to a proposed reverse stock split discussed below).

The Lock-Up Agreements apply to approximately 4,734,334 shares of the common stock of the Company.

In connection with the Merger, Splash entered into Promissory Note Conversion Agreements with approximately eighteen (18) holders who held approximately $7,748,720 in principal and interest amount of debt. Pursuant to the Promissory Note Conversion Agreements, the holders agreed to convert the outstanding amount including principal and interest of the promissory notes held by them and receive common stock of Splash at a conversion rate of $1.00 per share. As a result of the conversions, 10,560,900 shares of the common stock of Splash (the "Note Conversion Shares") were issued in exchange for the Outstanding Promissory Notes. Pursuant to the Promissory Note Conversion Agreements, the holders were given piggyback rights with respect to the Note Conversion Shares, which would require that the Note Conversion Shares are included on a registration statement that the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission seeking to register other shares. Under the Promissory Note Conversion Agreement, if the Company shall fail to raise $9,000,000 of additional capital no later than six months from the date of the Merger, then the holder may seek to rescind the Promissory Note Conversion Agreement, return the Note Conversion Shares and receive a replacement promissory note from the Company. A form of the replacement promissory notes is attached to the Current Report on Form 8-K as exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.

In connection with the Merger, Splash entered into Preferred Stock Conversion Agreements with the three (3) holders of 1,000,000 shares of its Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and thirty-eight (38) holders of 3,913,418 shares of its Series B Convertible Preferred Stock. Pursuant to the conversion agreements the holders agreed to convert their Preferred Stock into 13,930,413 shares (the "Preferred Stock Conversion Shares") of the common stock of Splash. Pursuant to the Preferred Stock Conversion Agreements, the holders were given piggyback rights with respect to the Preferred Stock Conversion Shares, which would require that the Preferred Stock Conversion Shares are included on a registration statement that the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission seeking to register other shares. Under the Preferred Stock Conversion Agreement, if the Company shall fail to raise $9,000,000 of additional capital no later than six months from the date of the Merger, then the holder may seek to rescind the Preferred Stock Conversion Agreement, return . . .

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities

As described in Section 2.01, the Company became obligated to issue an aggregate of 67,720,853 shares of common stock in connection with the Merger as well became obligated to issue warrants to purchase 19,067,337 shares of the Company's common stock, which are included of the 85% fully diluted amount discussed above. The shares issued in connection with the Merger will be issued pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended since among other things the transactions did not involve a public offering.

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

On April 6, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing the completion of the Merger. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.



Item 8.01 Risk Factors


The Company is subject to all the same risks that all companies in its business, and all companies in the economy, are exposed to. These include risks relating to economic downturns, political and economic events and technological developments (such as hacking and the ability to prevent hacking). Additionally, early-stage companies are inherently more risky than more developed companies.

The risk factors summarized below are not the only risks we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial may also materially adversely affect our business, reputation, financial condition and/or operating results.

An occurrence of an uncontrollable event such as the COVID-19 pandemic may negatively affect our operations and our ability to raise capital.

The occurrence of an uncontrollable event such as the COVID-19 pandemic may negatively affect our operations. A pandemic typically results in social distancing, travel bans and quarantine, and this may limit access to our facilities, customers, management, support staff and professional advisors. This event may also limit our ability to raise capital which as noted above could trigger certain rescission rights which could result in the Company's incurring additional debt and preferred holders who may take preference over other common holders. These factors, in turn, may not only impact our operations, financial condition and demand for our products but our overall ability to react timely to mitigate the impact of this event. Also, it may hamper our efforts to comply with our filing obligations with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Demand for our products may be adversely affected by changes in consumer preferences or any inability on our part to innovate, market or distribute our products effectively, and any significant reduction in demand could adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations..

Our beverage portfolio is comprised of a number of unique brands with reputations and consumer imagery that have been built over time. Our investments in marketing as well as our strong commitment to product quality are intended to have a favorable impact on brand image and consumer preferences. Unfavorable publicity, or allegations of quality issues, even if false or unfounded, could tarnish our reputation and brand image and may cause consumers to choose other products. In addition, if we do not adequately anticipate and react to changing demographics, consumer and economic trends, health concerns and product preferences, our financial results could be adversely affected.



Competition.


The beverage industry is extremely competitive. Our products compete with a broad range of beverage products, most of which are manufactured and distributed by companies with substantially greater financial, marketing and distribution resources. In order to generate future revenues and profits, we must continue to sell products that appeal to our customers and consumers. Discounting and other actions by our competitors may make it more difficult to sustain revenues and profits.

Volatility in the price or availability of the inputs we depend on, including raw materials, packaging, energy and labor, could adversely impact our financial results.

Our financial results could be adversely impacted by changes in the cost or availability of raw materials and packaging. Continued growth would require us to hire, retain and develop a highly skilled workforce and talented management team. Any unplanned turnover or our failure to develop an adequate succession plan for current positions could erode our competitiveness. In addition, our financial results could be adversely affected by increased costs due to increased competition for employees, higher employee turnover or increased employee benefit costs.




Governmental regulation.



Our business and properties are subject to various federal, state and local laws and regulations, including those governing the production, packaging, quality, labeling and distribution of beverage products. In addition, various governmental agencies have enacted or are considering additional taxes on soft drinks and other sweetened beverages. Changes in existing laws or regulations could require material expenses and negatively affect our financial results through lower sales or higher costs.

Dependence on key personnel.

Our performance significantly depends upon the continued contributions of our executive officers and key employees, both individually and as a group, and our ability to retain and motivate them. Our officers and key personnel have many years of experience with us and in our industry and it may be difficult to replace them. If we lose key personnel or are unable to recruit qualified personnel, our operations and ability to manage our business may be adversely affected.

Because our officers and directors serve as officers and directors of other companies engaged in the beverage industry, a potential conflict of interest could negatively impact our ability to run our business.

Some of our directors and officers work for other companies in the beverage industry. Due to time demands placed on our directors and officers, and due to the competitive nature of the beverage industry, the potential exists for conflicts of interest to occur from time to time that could adversely affect our ability to conduct our business. The officers and directors' employment and affiliations with other entities limits the amount of time they can dedicate to us as a director or officer and cannot be certain that a conflict of interest will not arise in the future. To date, there have not been any conflicts of interest between any of our directors or officers and the Company.

If our products become adulterated, misbranded or mislabeled, we might need to recall those items and we may experience product liability claims if consumers are injured or become sick.

Product recalls or safety concerns could adversely impact our market share and financial results. We may be required to recall certain of our products should they be mislabeled, contaminated or damaged. We also may become involved in lawsuits and legal proceedings if it is alleged that the consumption of any of our products causes injury or illness. A product recall or an adverse result in any such litigation could have an adverse effect on our operating and financial results. We may also lose customer confidence for our entire brand portfolio.

Our distribution network relies on relationships with our distributors, and such reliance could affect our ability to efficiently and profitably distribute and market products, maintain existing markets and expand business into other geographic markets.

Our business relies upon distribution relationships for the sale and distribution of our products. There can be no assurance that we will be able to mitigate the risks related to all or any of these factors in any of the current or prospective geographic areas of distribution. To the extent that any of these factors have an adverse effect on the relationships with consultants, companies or retailers in a particular geographic area and, thus, limit our ability to maintain and expand the sales market, revenues and financial results may be adversely impacted. There also is no assurance that we will be able to maintain distribution relationships or establish and maintain successful relationships in new geographic distribution areas. There is the possibility that we will have to incur significant expenses to attract and maintain relationships in one or more geographic distribution areas in order to profitably expand geographic markets. The occurrence of any of these factors could result in a significant decrease in sales volume of our branded products and the products which we distribute for others and harm our business and financial results.

We will need significant additional capital, which we may be unable to obtain.

Our current liquidity position raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. If we are unable to raise additional capital and/or obtain financing sufficient to meet current and future obligations, we may not be able to continue as a going concern. Additionally, if the Company shall fail to raise $9,000,000 of additional capital no later than six months from the date of the Merger, then the holder may seek to rescind the Promissory Note Conversion Agreement, return the Note Conversion Shares and receive a replacement promissory note from the Company and the parties to the Preferred Stock Note Conversion Agreements may seek to rescind the Preferred Stock Conversion Agreement, return the Preferred Stock Conversion Shares and receive replacement shares of preferred stock from the Company. There can be no . . .
