Re: Letter of Intent

Dear Patrick:

We have been discussing with you the proposed acquisition of the operating business of ClariCare, Inc., an Indiana state corporation (the “Company”) and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Seller”) by HIT Acquisition One, LLC, a newly formed entity owned solely by True Nature Holding, Inc., (the “Buyer” or “TNTY”), through a mutually acceptable transaction. This letter sets fort h the understanding in principle of Buyer and Seller, and the persons signing this letter as shareholders (collectively, the “Shareholders”) with respect to the material terms of such proposed acquisition and certain other related matters. All parties acknowledge that this is a non-binding letter of intent (“LOI”), and that much work and due diligence remains before a closing can be scheduled. Any closing will be based on a comprehensive definitive document set.

Proposed Transaction:

a)     Buyer proposes to acquire 100% of the business assets, or at Buyer’s option, 100% of the outstanding ownership interests, including but not limited to inventory, accounts receivable, cash, all existing formulations, intellectual property, licenses (to the extent that they are transferable), customer accounts and lists, real estate leases, store furniture, fixtures and equipment, certain operational contracts as determined by Buyer, Seller’s telephone numbers and other general intangible assets used in connection with its business, for a purchase price that would generally follow this formula:

b)     For outside investors who are current shareholders and/or debt holders of the Company, A) an aggregate amount of approximately $2,865,000 cash payment, or other amount as determined by a mutually acceptable audit of the real and actual cash investments as of the date hereof, and is intended as a 1:1 return of capital; and B) the issuance of one million (1,000,000) shares of TNTY restricted common stock (RSUs or other to be determined) to be shared among investors based on pro-rata ownership calculations, as determined by the Board of Directors of the Seller.

c)     In addition to the business purchase consideration, Patrick Malloy, shall be employed in an executive management position contemplating salary, and performance bonuses. Mr. Malloy will also receive shares of TNTY common stock (RSUs or other instrument to be determined) and a signing bonus, in a form and in an amount consistent with all other executives of similar stature. Mr. Malloy’s agreement will be duly executed under a definitive Employment Agreement in connection with this LOI.

d)     The Company and Mr. Malloy may enter into similar arrangements for other entities, or investments in the health care arena, in which Mr. Malloy may have an ownership position, or

intellectual properties, at a later date, but in any case all similar transactions shall be completed not later than the date of closing for this transaction, and all negotiations shall be at “arm's length”, and with supporting valuation computations. All parties agree that any intellectual properties developed subsequent to closing, and while under the employment of the Company, that are in the healthcare arena, shall be the property of the Company, unless otherwise agreed to in writing and approved by the Board of Directors of the Company.

e)     In addition to total consideration above and subject to review of all operating plans and pro-forma financial models, the Company will coordinate financing of up to $2,500,000 in operating cash in a form acceptable to its Board, to be made available over the 24-month period following closing. The expected need based on existing models could be an amount equal to twelve (12) months operating budget, estimated at $1,400,000. The Board shall work in good faith to ensure that such financing can be utilized upon closing.

f)     Buyer will assume only those current liabilities (excluding short-term indebtedness and accrued interest and dividends), set forth on the Company’s balance sheet as of the date of closing and incurred in the ordinary course of business. Buyer will not assume any unusual current liabilities such as unpaid annual bonuses, amounts owed to the current shareholders in any form, accrued but unpaid income taxes, accrued but unpaid legal or other professional fees, or trade payables which are not current. Buyer commits to paying trade payables as soon as possible on a reasonable timeframe.

g)     The proposed Purchase Price represents a total enterprise value and therefore assumes all indebtedness (including notes owed to shareholders) incurred by the Company is repaid by the Seller upon the closing of the transaction. In addition, Buyer will not assume any guarantees of indebtedness, nor any interest, penalties, and premium accrued on indebtedness as of the closing. Accordingly, the Company will be transferred to Buyer free and clear of all liens, charges, encumbrances, and other interests of third parties.

Other Terms and Conditions.

Additional terms and conditions of the proposed transaction include the following:

a)     Except as provided in Section 5 hereof, the obligations of the Buyer and Seller are contingent upon the negotiation, execution and delivery of a definitive agreement, satisfactory to the Buyer and Seller (the “Definitive Acquisition Agreement”). The Definitive Acquisition Agreement shall be prepared by Buyer’s counsel and shall contain provisions for, among other things, representations and warranties satisfactory to the Buyer relating to the Buyer, the financial condition and results of operations of the Seller and the assets and liabilities of the Seller. Seller will deliver to Buyer copies of the financial statements for the Seller for the past two fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2017, as well as any interim financial statements for the period concluding the last day of the month in which the transaction is deemed to be closed, including an officer’s certificate as to their accuracy. We will reserve certain amounts of the consideration subject to final valuation by our auditors in accordance with U.S. GAAP and PCAOB standards.

b)     The proposed transaction is contingent on the following: approval of the shareholders and principals of the Seller, approval of the Board of Directors of the Company, conclusion of due diligence by the Buyer, and approval of any regulatory bodies with whom the Seller has reporting, or licensing, financing as required in a form acceptable to all parties, and other requirements.
