Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

See Item 2.01.
Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
On June 3, 2019, Super League Gaming, Inc. (the “Company”) and SLG Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Framerate, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Framerate”), pursuant to which Framerate merged with and into Merger Sub, with Merger Sub continuing as the surviving corporation (the “Acquisition”). The Acquisition was consummated on June 6, 2019 when the certificate of merger of Merger Sub and Framerate was filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the “Effective Date”). As consideration for the Acquisition, the Company ratably paid and/or issued to the former shareholders of Framerate an aggregate of $1.5 million in cash and $1.0 million worth of shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”), at a price per share of $7.4395 (the “Closing Shares”), which price is equal to the volume weighted average price of the Company’s Common Stock over the five trading days preceding the date of the Merger Agreement, as reported on the Nasdaq Capital Market. In connection with the Acquisition, Marco Mereu, the former Chief Executive Officer of Framerate, joined the Company and will act as the Company’s Senior Vice President, Content Marketing and Distribution.
In addition to the issuance of the Closing Shares, the Merger Agreement provides for the issuance of up to an additional $980,000 worth of shares of the Company’s Common Stock at the same price per share as the Closing Shares (the “Earn-Out Shares”) in the event Framerate achieves certain performance-based milestones during the two-year period following the closing of the Acquisition, or June 6, 2021. One-half of the Earn-Out Shares will be issuable on the one-year anniversary of the Effective Date, and the remaining one-half will be issuable on the second anniversary of the Effective Date.
The Closing shares issued in connection with the Acquisition were issued in reliance upon the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder. 
The Acquisition was approved by the board of directors of each of the Company and Framerate, and was approved by the stockholders of Framerate.
The Merger Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants of the Company, Framerate and Merger Sub that are customary for a transaction of this nature, including among others, covenants by Framerate regarding the conduct of its business between the execution of the Merger Agreement the Effective Date, public disclosures and other matters.
The Merger Agreement also contains customary indemnification provisions whereby the stockholders of Framerate will indemnify the Company for certain losses arising out of inaccuracies in, or breaches of, the representations, warranties and covenants of Framerate, pre-closing taxes of Framerate, and certain other matters, subject to certain caps and thresholds.
The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Merger Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein. The Merger Agreement has been attached to provide investors with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about the Company, Framerate or Merger Sub. In particular, the assertions embodied in the representations and warranties contained in the Merger Agreement are qualified by information in a confidential disclosure letter provided by Framerate to the Company in connection with the signing of the Merger Agreement. This confidential disclosure letter contains information that modifies, qualifies and creates exceptions to the representations and warranties and certain covenants set forth in the Merger Agreement. Moreover, certain representations and warranties in the Merger Agreement were used for the purposes of allocating risk between the Company and Framerate rather than establishing matters of fact. Accordingly, the representations and warranties in the Merger Agreement should not be relied on as characterization of the actual state of facts about the Company, Framerate or Merger Sub.
