Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
On May 18, 2017, Ecosciences, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “ Company ”), issued Joel Falitz, the Chief Executive Officer, President and Chairman of the Board of the Company, an aggregate of 4 million (4,000,000) shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “ Series C Preferred Stock ”), pursuant to that certain Debt Conversion Agreement, dated May 18, 2017 (the “ Debt Conversion Agreement ”), between Mr. Falitz and the Company, in exchange for Mr. Falitz’s forgiveness of $4,000 of indebtedness owed him by the Company. The securities were issued pursuant to the registration exemption under Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “ Securities Act ”).
On May 19, 2017, the Company issued Mr. Falitz an aggregate of 48 million (48,000,000) shares of Common Stock pursuant to Mr. Falitz’s Notice of Conversion, dated May 19, 2017, pursuant to which Mr. Falitz converted 4 million (4,000,000) shares of Series C Preferred Stock into 48 million (48,000,000) shares of Common Stock. According to the Certificate of Designation for the Company’s Series C Preferred Stock, as amended, filed with the Secretary of State of Nevada on April 20, 2015, each share of Series C Preferred Stock is convertible upon the election the holder thereof, into 12 shares of Common Stock of the Company; provided, however, in connection with any conversion hereunder, each holder of Series C Preferred Stock may not convert any part of the Series C Preferred Stock if such conversion would cause such holder or any of its assignees to beneficially own more than 4.99% of the Common Stock of the Company. The 4.99% conversion limitation was waived by the Company and Mr. Falitz. The securities were issued pursuant to the registration exemption under Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act.
A copy of the Debt Conversion is attached to this Current Report as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On May 19, 2017 (the “ Effective Date ”), a 1-to-10,000 reverse stock split of the issued and outstanding common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “ Common Stock ”), of the Company became effective in the marketplace (the “ Reverse Stock Split ”).
On May 4, 2017, the Company had filed a certificate of amendment (the “ Amendment ”) to its Articles of Incorporation, as amended (the “ Articles of Incorporation ”) with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada in order to effectuate the Reverse Stock Split of the issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock. As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every ten thousand (10,000) shares of the Company’s pre-Reverse Stock Split Common Stock was combined and reclassified into one (1) share of the Company’s Common Stock. The Amendment provided that no fractional shares of Common Stock will be issued to the holders of record of Common Stock prior to the Reverse Split. Instead, all fractional shares will be rounded up to the next whole number of shares.
The Company notified Financial Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“ FINRA ”) of these Reverse Stock Split, as required by Rule 10b-17 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1935, as amended. FINRA approved of the Reverse Stock Split on May 18, 2017.
On the Effective Date, the Company's trading symbol was changed to “ECEZD” for a period of 20 business days, after which the Company’s trading symbol will revert back to the original symbol of “ECEZ.” In connection with the Reverse Stock Split, the Company's CUSIP number was changed to 279219 208. The Company’s transfer agent, VStock Transfer, LLC, is acting as exchange agent for the Reverse Stock Split.
As previously disclosed in the Company’s Information Statement on Schedule 14C filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 13, 2017, the Company’s Board of Directors and the holder of 200,000 outstanding shares of Series B Non-Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company, representing approximately 80% of all votes entitled to be voted at any annual or special meeting of stockholders of the Company or action by written consent, approved of the Reverse Stock Split by written consent in lieu of a meeting pursuant to the Nevada Revised Statutes and the By-laws of the Company on April 13, 2017.
A copy of the Amendment is attached to this Current Report as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.

|THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “ACT”), OR ANY STATE SECURITIES LAWS, AND NEITHER SUCH SECURITIES NOR ANY INTEREST THEREIN MAY BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED, ASSIGNED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED UNLESS (1) A REGISTRATION STATEMENT WITH RESPECT THERETO IS EFFECTIVE UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, OR (2) AN EXEMPTION FROM SUCH REGISTRATION EXISTS AND THE COMPANY RECEIVES AN OPINION OF COUNSEL TO THE HOLDER OF SUCH SECURITIES, WHICH COUNSEL AND OPINION ARE SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY, THAT SUCH SECURITIES MAY BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED, ASSIGNED OR TRANSFERRED IN THE MANNER CONTEMPLATED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS.|
|5.||Debt-holder’s Representations . The Debt-holder acknowledges that the Company is issuing the Conversion Shares to Debt-holder in reliance upon the following representations made by Debt-holder:|
|(a)||Debt-holder is acquiring the Conversion Shares for investment for its own account and not with the view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution thereof. Debt-holder understands and acknowledges that the Conversion Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, which depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and other representations of Debt-holder as expressed herein. Debt-holder further represents that it does not have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any person to sell, transfer or grant participation to any third person with respect to any of the Conversion Shares.|
|(b)||Debt-holder (i) has had, and continues to have, access to detailed information with respect to the business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects of the Company; (ii) has received or has been provided access to all material information concerning an investment in the Company; and (iii) has been given the opportunity to obtain any additional information or documents from, and to ask questions and receive answers of, the officers, directors and representatives of the Company to the extent necessary to evaluate the merits and risks related to an investment in the Company represented by the Conversion Shares.|
As a result of Debt-holder’s study of the aforementioned information and Debt-holder’s prior overall experience in financial matters, and Debt-holder’s familiarity with the nature of businesses such as the Company, Debt-holder is properly able to evaluate the capital structure of the Company, the business of the Company, and the risks inherent therein.
Debt-holder’s investment in the Company pursuant to this Agreement is consistent, in both nature and amount, with Debt-holder’s overall investment program and financial condition.
|(e)||Debt-holder’s financial condition is such that Debt-holder can afford to bear the economic risk of holding the Conversion Shares, and to suffer a complete loss of Debt-holder’s investment in the Company represented by the Conversion Shares.|
|(f)||All action on the part of Debt-holder, and its officers, directors and partners, if applicable, necessary for the authorization, execution and delivery of this Agreement and the performance of all obligations of Debt-holder hereunder and thereunder has been taken, and this Agreement, assuming due execution by the parties hereto, constitutes valid and legally binding obligations of Debt-holder, enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to: (i) judicial principles limiting the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief, and other equitable remedies and (ii) bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws now or hereafter in effect generally relating to or affecting creditors’ rights.|
|(g)||Debt-holder realizes that because of the inherently speculative nature of businesses of the kind conducted and contemplated by the Company, the Company’s financial results may be expected to fluctuate from month to month and from period to period and will, generally, involve a high degree of financial and market risk that could result in substantial or, at times, even total losses for investors in securities of the Company.|
|(a)||THIS AGREEMENT IS MADE UNDER, AND SHALL BE CONSTRUED AND ENFORCED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEVADA APPLICABLE TO AGREEMENTS MADE AND TO BE PERFORMED SOLELY THEREIN, WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICTS OF LAW. In any action between or among any of the Parties arising out of this Agreement, (i) each of the Parties irrevocably and unconditionally consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts having jurisdiction over Nevada; (ii) if any such action is commenced in a state court, then, subject to applicable law, no party shall object to the removal of such action to any federal court having jurisdiction over Nevada; (iii) each of the parties irrevocably waives the right to trial by jury; and (iv) each of the parties irrevocably consents to service of process by first class certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepared, to the address at which such party is to receive notice in accordance with this Agreement.|
|(b)||All notices, requests, demands, claims, and other communications hereunder shall be in writing. Any notice, request, demand, claim or other communication hereunder shall be deemed duly delivered four business days after it is sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, or one business day after it is sent for next business day delivery via a reputable nationwide overnight courier service, in each case to the intended recipient as set forth below:|
