PART II

 

INFORMATION REQUIRED IN THE REGISTRATION STATEMENT

 

Item 3. INCORPORATION OF CERTAIN DOCUMENTS BY REFERENCE

 

Incorporated hereby by reference and made a part hereof is the Registrant’s Registration Statement on Form 8-A (File no. 000-52956) filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and which became effective on December 6, 2007, registering the Registrant’s Common Stock under Section 12(g) of the Exchange Act, and all documents subsequently filed by the Registrant pursuant to Sections 13(a), 13(c), 14, or 15(d) of the Exchange Act prior to the filing of a post-effective amendment which indicates that all securities offered have been sold or which deregisters all securities then remaining unsold, shall be deemed to be incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement and to be a part hereof from the date of filing such documents.

 

Item 4. DESCRIPTION OF SECURITIES

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 5. INTEREST OF NAMED EXPERTS AND COUNSEL

 

The legality of the securities being registered by this Registration Statement is being passed upon by Morse & Morse PLLC, 1400 Old Country Road, Suite 302, Westbury, NY 11590, counsel to the Registrant.

 

Item 6. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS

 

Our company is incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada, which laws provide for indemnification of officers and directors under certain circumstances. Our Bylaws provide for the indemnification of our directors to the fullest extent permitted under the general corporation law of the State of Nevada from time to time against all expenses, liability and loss (including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines and amounts paid or to be paid in settlement) reasonably incurred or suffered in connection with acting as directors of our company.

 

Our articles of incorporation provide that no Director or Officer of the corporation shall be personally liable to the corporation or any of its stockholders for damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a Director or Officer involving any act or omission of any such Director or Officer; provided, however, that: the foregoing provision shall not eliminate or limit the liability of a Director or Officer (i) for acts or omissions which involve intentional misconduct, fraud or a knowing violation of the law, or (ii) the payment of dividends in violation of Section 78.300 of the Nevada Revised Statutes. Any repeal or modification of this Article by the Stockholders of the corporation shall be prospective only, and shall not adversely affect any limitations on the personal liability of a Director or Officer of the corporation for acts or omissions prior to such repeal or modification.

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of our company under Nevada law or otherwise, we have been advised the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission is that such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than payment by us for expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of our company in successful defense of any action, suit, or proceeding) is asserted by a director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, we will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction, the question of whether such indemnification by it is against public policy in the Securities Act of 1933 and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

A. To Update Annually

 

The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that it will (other than as provided in the proviso to item 512(a) of Regulation S-K) (1) file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement (i) to include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act, (ii) reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement, and (iii) include any additional or changed material information on the plan of distribution; (2) for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, treat each post-effective amendment as a new registration statement of the securities offered, and the offering of such securities at the time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof; and (3) file a post-effective amendment to remove from registration any of the securities that remain unsold at the end of the offering.

 

     
 

 

B. Incorporation of Subsequent Securities

Exchange Act of 1934 Documents by Reference

 

The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

C. Indemnification of Officers and Directors

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

Re: Registration Statement on Form S-8 of Quantum Materials Corp.

 

Gentlemen:

 

You have requested our opinion as counsel for Quantum Materials Corp., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the Registration Statement on Form S-8 (the “Registration Statement”) filed by the Registrant with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Act’) with respect to shares (the “Shares”) of Common Stock, par value $.001 per share, of the Registrant which may be issued pursuant to the direct issuance of shares or exercise of options granted or to be granted under the Registrant’s 2015 Employee Benefit and Consulting Services Corporation Plan covering up to 15,000,000 shares (the “2015 Plan”).

 

We have examined such corporate records and other documents and have made such examination of law as we have deemed relevant in connection with this opinion.

 

Based upon the foregoing, we advise you that in our opinion each authorized but unissued Share issued by the Registrant in accordance with the terms of the 2015 Plan, upon the direct issuance of shares and/or exercise of options properly granted (or to be granted) under the 2015 Plan, is duly authorized, and, when (a) the applicable provisions of such “blue sky” and securities laws as may be applicable have been complied with and (b) each such Share has been delivered in accordance with the terms of the 2015 Plan, assuming no change in the applicable law or pertinent facts, each such Share will be legally issued, fully paid, and non-assessable.

 

We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement, and we further consent to the use of our name therein under the caption “Interests of Named Experts and Counsel,” in Part II of the Registration Statement. In giving this consent, we do not thereby admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Act or the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder.

 

  Very truly yours,
   
  MORSE & MORSE PLLC
   
  /s/ Steven Morse, Managing Member
