Dear [Recipients Name],

I regret to inform you that our meeting regarding your sports clothing line has been canceled. I have accepted another company's offer to an exclusive distributorship. This agreement is only for up to two seasons. If you are interested to see me before that, then please call nest March and schedule another meeting. I wish you a bright future.
