Commitments and Contingencies



Legal Matters


The Company is involved in litigation and arbitrations from time to time in the ordinary course of business. The Company does not believe that the outcome of any such pending or threatened litigation will have a material adverse effect on its financial condition or results of operations. However, as is inherent in legal proceedings, there is a risk that an unpredictable decision adverse to the company could be reached. The Company records legal costs associated with loss contingencies as incurred. Settlements are accrued when, and if, they become probable and estimable.


Consulting Agreements


On or about January 11, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement with Maxim Group LLC (“Maxim”) to provide general financial advisory and investment banking services to the Company. Pursuant to the terms of this agreement, Maxim will receive a monthly cash fee of $7,500 for the duration of the agreement, which may be terminated by either party at any time after nine months, or upon 30 days prior written notice to the other party. In connection with the agreement, the Company issued 350,000 shares of restricted common stock valued at $2.50 per share to Maxim (see Note 12 – Stockholders’ Equity), which vest 11.1% upon execution of the agreement, and 11.1% monthly thereafter. An additional 100,000 shares of restricted stock will be issued to Maxim upon the uplisting of the Company’s common stock to a national exchange.


The Company entered into an Investor Relations Consulting Agreement effective April 8, 2016 (the “IR Agreement”) with MZHCI LLC (“MZHCI”) to provide consulting services with respect to financial markets and exchanges, competitors, business acquisitions and other related matters in exchange for consideration of $6,500 of cash per month plus five-year warrants for the purchase of up to 150,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $2.50 per share, of which warrants for the purchase of 75,000 share of common stock were granted on April 18, 2016 (see Note 12 – Stockholders’ Equity – Warrants) and warrants for the purchase of additional 75,000 shares of common stock were granted on October 18, 2016. (See Note 14 – Subsequent Events).
