SUPPLEMENT TO THE PROXY STATEMENT FOR THE
SPECIAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS
TO BE HELD ON SEPTEMBER 29, 2017
This proxy statement supplement (the “Supplement”), dated September 25, 2017, supplements the definitive proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) filed by Marathon Patent Group, Inc. (“Marathon” or the “Company”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 8, 2017, and made available to Marathon’s shareholders in connection with the solicitation of proxies by the Board of Directors of Marathon (the “Board”) for the Special Meeting of Shareholders to be held on September 29, 2017 and any adjournment or postponement thereof (the “Special Meeting”).
This Supplement is being filed with the SEC and is being made available to shareholders on or about September 25, 2017. Only shareholders of record as of the close of business on September 7, 2017, are entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the Special Meeting.
Except as described in this Supplement, the information provided in the Proxy Statement continues to apply. To the extent that information in this Supplement differs from or updates information contained in the Proxy Statement, the information in this Supplement is more current. The Proxy Statement contains important additional information. This Supplement should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement.
Supplemental Information Concerning Proposal 1 “Approval of the First Amendment to Amended and Restated Revenue Sharing And Securities Purchase Agreement and Restructuring Agreement, and the Contribution of Certain of the Company’s Intellectual Property to a Newly Created Special Purpose Entity as Described in the First Amendment and Restructuring Agreement”.
In connection with the First Amendment and Restructuring Agreement the following changes will be in effect:
|1.||The form of assignment of intellectual property from the Company to the SPE may include a patent assignment or conveyance of one of the Company’s owned or controlled subsidiary or joint venture entities to the SPE, as determined by the Company and DBD, or a combination thereof. While, this represents a change from the description of the mechanics of the transfer of the Designated IP in the Proxy Statement, the Company believes that such change will have no material effect on the Company.|
|2.||The Company will retain a residual interest in the Designated IP (the “Marathon Residual”) equal to a percentage of Monetization Revenues. There can be no assurance that the Marathon Residual will have any value or if it has any value, when any revenue can be expected to be realized therefrom which will depend on a number of factors such as the extent of recoveries achieved, if any, and timing of such efforts by the SPE over which Marathon shall have no control. In addition, the Company has agreed to pay up to 15% of Monetization Revenue to the owner of Designated IP to be contributed to the SPE. As a result, the Marathon Residual will be 30% as opposed to the 45% stated in the Proxy Statement.|
