The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes are presented in accordance with the requirements for Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and do not contain certain information included in our annual Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes presented in accordance with the requirements of Annual Reports on Form 10-K.

 

The interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiaries, and entities in which the Company owns or controls fifty percent or more of the voting shares or interest in such entity, and has the right to control. The results of entities disposed of are included in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements up to the date of the disposal and, where appropriate, these operations have been reflected as discontinued operations. All inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation and, in the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation have been included in the interim results reported.

 

The preparation of the interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses for the reporting periods. Despite our intention to establish accurate estimates and use reasonable assumptions, actual results may differ from our estimates.

 

The December 31, 2019 Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet data were derived from the audited Consolidated Financial Statements, but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. This Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with our Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, as filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 3, 2020.

 

The operating results of our legacy business segments, Consumer Storage and Accessories and Tiered Storage and Security Solutions (the “Legacy Businesses”) and the Nexsan Business, are presented in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations as discontinued operations for all periods presented. Our continuing operations in each period presented represents our “Asset Management Business,” as well as corporate expenses and activities not directly attributable to our Legacy Businesses or the Nexsan Business. Assets and liabilities directly associated with our Legacy Businesses and Nexsan Business and that are not part of our ongoing operations are included in other assets and other investments. See Note 4 - Discontinued Operations for further information.

 

Note 2 — New Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company considers the applicability and impact of all Accounting Standards Updates (“ASUs”) issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”). ASUs not listed below were assessed and determined to be not applicable to the Company’s consolidated results of operations and financial condition.

 

Adoption of New Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-13, Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement, which eliminates, amends, and adds disclosure requirements for fair value measurements. The amended and new disclosure requirements primarily relate to Level 3 fair value measurements. For the Company, the ASU was effective as of January 1, 2020. The removal and amendment of certain disclosures may be early adopted with retrospective application while the new disclosure requirements are to be applied prospectively. As this ASU relates only to disclosures, there was no impact to the Company’s consolidated results of operations and financial condition.

Note 3 — Income (loss) per Common Share

 

Basic income per common share is calculated using the weighted average number of shares outstanding for the period. Unvested restricted stock and treasury shares are excluded from the calculation of weighted average number of common shares outstanding in all cases. Once restricted stock vests, it is included in our common shares outstanding.

 

Diluted income per common share is computed on the basis of the weighted average shares outstanding plus the dilutive effect of our stock-based compensation plans, using the “treasury stock” method. Since the exercise price of our stock options is greater than the average market price of the Company’s common stock for the period, we did not include dilutive common equivalent shares for these instruments in the computation of diluted net income per share because the effect would have been anti-dilutive.

 

The following table sets forth the computation of weighted average basic and diluted income per share:

 

   Three Months Ended   Nine Months Ended 
   September 30,   September 30, 
(In millions, except for per share amounts)  2020   2019   2020   2019

Note 4 — Discontinued Operations

 

The operating results for the Legacy Businesses and the Nexsan Business are presented in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations as discontinued operations for all periods presented, reflecting revenues and expenses that are directly attributable to these businesses that were eliminated from our ongoing operations.

 

The key components of the results of discontinued operations were as follows:

 

   Three Months Ended   Nine Months Ended 
   September 30,   September 30, 
(In millions)  2020   2019   2020   2019 
Net revenue  $   $   $   $0.1 
Cost of goods sold               0.1 
Gross profit                
Selling, general and administrative               0.3 
Restructuring and other       0.2         
Other income               (0.6)
Income (loss) from discontinued operations, before income taxes       (0.2)       0.3 
Income on sale of discontinued businesses, before income taxes               9.6 
Income tax benefit               0.9 
Income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of income taxes  $   $(0.2)   $   $10.8 

 

Net income from discontinued operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 decreased by $0.5 million and $10.8 million, respectively, compared to the same periods last year due to the sale of the Imation Subsidiaries.

 

Note 5 — Supplemental Balance Sheet Information

 

Additional supplemental balance sheet information is provided as follows:

 

Other current assets of $1.5 million as of September 30, 2020 include restricted cash of $1.2 million and a $0.3 million minimum tax refund.

 

Property and equipment consists of quantitative trading software purchased from GEH Capital, LLC (“GEH”). The asset is depreciated on a straight-line basis over a useful life of three years. Net property and equipment of $1.6 million as of September 30, 2020 consists of the purchased cost of $1.7 million less accumulated depreciation of $0.1 million. The residual values, useful life and depreciation method are reviewed at each financial year end to ensure that the amount, method and period of depreciation are consistent with previous estimates and the expected pattern of consumption of the future economic benefits embodied in the items of property and equipment. See Note 14 – Related Party Transactions for more information the software purchase.

 

An item of property, plant and equipment is derecognised upon disposal or when no future economic benefits are expected from its use or disposal. The difference between the net disposal proceeds, if any and the net carrying amount is recognised in income statement.

 

Total assets of as of September 30, 2020 include a $12.8 million investment in Arrive LLC (“Arrive”). Historically, we accounted for such investments under the cost method of accounting. The adoption of ASU No. 2016-01 in the first quarter of 2018 effectively eliminated the cost method of accounting, and the carrying value of this investment is written down, or impaired, to fair value when a decline in value is considered to be other-than-temporary. Our strategic investment in equity securities does not have a readily determinable fair value; therefore, the new guidance was adopted prospectively. As of September 30, 2020, there were no indicators of impairment for this investment. The Company will assess the investment for potential impairment, quarterly.

 

Other assets of $1.0 million as of September 30, 2020 include a $0.3 million minimum tax refund.

Note 6 — Debt

 

Debt and notes payable consists of the following:

 

   September 30,   December 31, 
   2020   2019 
   (In millions) 
Pension liability  $   $13.5 
Stock purchase agreement notes payable (see Note 14 – Related Party Transactions)   17.6    17.6 
Orix notes payable       13.0 
ESW note payable   11.0     
Deferred financing costs   (0.2)    (2.7)
Bank loan   0.4     
Other related parties notes payable   0.2     
Other liabilities   0.1    0.2 
Total long term debt   29.1    41.6 

 

Stock purchase agreement notes payable bear interest at a 5% annual rate and mature on December 12, 2022. The interest under the notes is payable in arrears on the first day of each calendar quarter, or, at the Company’s option, in shares of common stock of the Company at a price reflecting market value. Interest of $508,000 due under the agreement is offset due to the termination of a Credit Facility Letter Agreement with Clinton Special Opportunities Fund LLC (“CSO”). See Note 14 – Related Party Transactions for more information.

 

The Company had multiple notes payable with Orix. Notes payable of $16 million issued in March 2020 bear interest at a 5.0% annual rate and mature on September 18, 2021.

 

On July 21, 2020, pursuant to a loan prepayment and security termination agreement, the Company prepaid the $16 million notes payable issued to Orix in March 2020, together with accrued interest of $171,112. The prior Orix notes payable of $13 million, which bear interest at a 7.5% annual rate, were assigned from Adara Enterprises Corp. to Adara Asset Management LLC, which, also on July 21, 2020, was sold to GEH Sport LLC, a related party, and, in effect, no longer an obligation of the Company.

 

Also on July 21, 2020, the Company borrowed $11 million from ESW Holdings, LLC (“ESW”), the proceeds of which were applied, among other things, to finance the transactions referred to in the preceding paragraph and the Company’s purchase of Orix’s shares of Adara Enterprises Corp. (“AEC”), as described below. The loan is due January 20, 2021, with $1,100,000 interest. Also, AEC granted to ESW a security interest in all of AEC’s assets pursuant to a Loan and Security Agreement (the “LSA”), which, in addition to customary representations and warranties and covenants, prohibits AEC from entering into any agreement without ESW’s consent, or, subject to exceptions, incur or prepay any indebtedness, incur any liens, or make distributions on or payments with respect to its shares, and requires AEC to maintain at least $500,000 in cash or cash equivalents in controlled accounts. ESW may accelerate the loan upon a payment default; covenant default, in some cases after notice; a material adverse change in AEC’s business, assets, financial condition, ability to repay the loan, or in the perfection, value, or priority of ESW’s security interests in AEC’s assets; attachment of a material part of AEC’s assets; AEC’s or the Company’s insolvency; AEC’s default in its obligations under other agreements totaling $100,000 or more; AEC’s incurring judgments or settlements totaling $100,000 or more; or a change in AEC’s ownership; or if any material representation by AEC under the LSA is untrue. The LSA provides that, in event of AEC’s default other than for a material representation, AEC and ESW will act in good faith to effect a reorganization of AEC in bankruptcy, pursuant to which ESW acquires from the Company all equity in AEC and certain of its assets, for $8,500,000, and AEC’s cash, shares of its subsidiaries, including Sport-BLX, Inc., and a right to use AEC software and intellectual property within the sports industry are distributed to the Company. In connection with the LSA, pursuant to a Limited Recourse Stock Pledge Agreement, the Company pledged to ESW all of the Company’s AEC stock and 30% of the outstanding stock of SportBLX, and, pursuant to a Subscription Agreement, ESW purchased 100 shares of AEC’s Series A Preferred Stock for a total purchase price of $25,000. Upon any liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of AEC, each holder of Series A Preferred Stock is entitled to a liquidation preference of $1,500 per share and no more. Holders of Series A Preferred Stock vote together with holders of common stock on all matters, and each share of Series A Preferred Stock entitles the holder to one vote.

On May 5, 2020, the Company received funds under a loan (the “Bank Loan”) from Signature Bank (the “Lender”) in the aggregate amount of $374,065, pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under Division A, Title I of the CARES Act, which was enacted March 27, 2020. The Bank Loan, which was in the form of a note, dated April 30, 2020, issued to the Lender, matures on April 30, 2022 and bears interest at a rate of 1.00% per annum, payable monthly commencing on November 30, 2020. The note may be prepaid by the Company at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties. Under the terms of the PPP, certain amounts of the Bank Loan may be forgiven as long as the Company uses the proceeds for eligible purposes, including payroll, benefits, rent and utilities. The Company intends to use the entire Bank Loan amount for qualifying expenses.

 

Other related parties notes payable of $0.2 million is comprised of Demand Notes 4 and 5 described below.

 

On June 30, 2020, SportBLX issued an unsecured demand note to Clinton Special Opportunities Fund LLC (“CSO”), a related party, in the aggregate principal amount of $150,000 (the Demand Note-4”). The Demand Note-4 bears interest at an 8% annual rate and matures upon the earlier to occur of (a) demand by CSO, or (b) July 1, 2021. As of September 30, 2020 SportBLX borrowed $150,000 under the Demand Note-4.

 

On June 30, 2020, SportBLX issued an unsecured demand note to Mr. De Perio, a related party, in the aggregate principal amount of $40,000 (the Demand Note-5”). The Demand Note-5 bears interest at an 8% annual rate and matures upon the earlier to occur of (a) demand by Mr. De Perio, or (b) July 1, 2021. As of September 30, 2020 SportBLX borrowed $40,000 under the Demand Note-5.

 

On June 30, 2020, SportBLX issued an unsecured demand note to Sport-BLX Securities, Inc. (“Securities”), a related party, in the aggregate principal amount of $213,793 (the Demand Note-6”). The Demand Note-6 bears interest at an 8% annual rate and matures upon the earlier to occur of (a) demand by Securities, or (b) July 1, 2021. As of September 30, 2020 SportBLX borrowed $213,793 under the Demand Note-6, which was offset by amounts owed to SportBLX.

 

Scheduled maturities of the Company’s long-term debt, as they exist as of September 30, 2020, in each of the next five fiscal years and thereafter are as follows:

 

Fiscal years ending in  (in millions) 
2020  $  
2021   11.2 
2022   17.9 
2023    
2024    
2025 and thereafter    
Total   29.1 

 

Note 7 — Restructuring and Other Expense

 

Restructuring expenses generally include severance and related charges, lease termination costs and other costs related to restructuring programs. Employee-related severance charges are largely based upon distributed employment policies and substantive severance plans. Generally, these charges are reflected in the period in which the Board approves the associated actions, the actions are probable, and the amounts are estimable, which may occur prior to the communication to the affected employee(s). This estimate considers all information available as of the date the financial statements are issued.

 

Restructuring and other expense was $0.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020. Restructuring and other expense was $0.0 million and $0.1 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.

 

Note 8 — Stock-Based Compensation

 

We have stock-based compensation awards consisting of stock options under the 2011 Incentive Plan, which is described in detail in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. As of September 30, 2020, there are no remaining shares available for grant under the 2011 Incentive Plan. No further shares were available for grant under any other stock incentive plan. The Company did not have any stock-based compensation expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019.

Stock Options

 

The following table summarizes our stock option activity:

 

   Stock Options   Weighted Average Exercise Price 
Outstanding December 31, 2019   1,360   $106.00 
Outstanding September 30, 2020   1,360   $106.00 
Exercisable as of September 30, 2020   775   $106.00 

 

As of September 30, 2020, options to purchase 1,360 shares are outstanding and 775 shares are exercisable, and the aggregate intrinsic value of all outstanding stock options was $0.0 million. No options were granted or exercised during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.

 

As of September 30, 2020, unrecognized compensation expense related to outstanding stock options was immaterial.

 

Note 9 — Retirement Plans

 

GlassBridge and the U.S. Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (the “PBGC”) entered into an agreement on May 13, 2019 to terminate the Imation Cash Balance Pension Plan (the “Plan”) based on the PBGC’s findings that (i) the Plan did not meet the minimum funding standard required under Section 412 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended; (ii) the Plan would be unable to pay benefits when due and (iii) the Plan should be terminated in order to protect the interests of the Plan participants. GlassBridge and all other members of the Company’s controlled group (within the meaning of 29 U.S.C. §1301(a)(14)) (collectively, and including the Company, the “Controlled Group Members”)) were jointly and severally liable to the PBGC for all liabilities under Title IV of ERISA in connection with the Plan’s termination, including unfunded benefit liabilities, due and unpaid Plan contributions, premiums, and interest on each of the foregoing (the “Pension Liabilities”), as a result of which a lien in favor of the Plan, on all property of each Controlled Group Member, arose and was perfected by PBGC (the “Lien”). On October 1, 2019, the Company entered into a settlement agreement (“Settlement Agreement”) with the PBGC. Pursuant to the terms of the Settlement Agreement, GlassBridge paid $3,000,000 in cash to PBGC on October 3, 2019 (the “Settlement Payment”). Per the terms of the Settlement Agreement and following the Settlement Payment on October 3, 2019, the PBGC released all Controlled Group Members from the Lien, as of January 6, 2020.

 

Note 10 — Income Taxes

 

For interim income tax reporting, we are required to estimate our annual effective tax rate and apply it to year-to-date pre-tax income (loss) excluding unusual or infrequently occurring discrete items. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, we recorded income tax from continuing operations of $0.0 million on a loss of $3.5 million. For the three months ended September 30, 2019, we recorded income tax from continuing operations of $0.0 million on a loss of $0.5 million. The effective income tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2020 differs from the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% primarily due to a valuation allowance on various deferred tax assets.

 

The Company received income tax refunds of approximately $1.1 million and $0.6 million related to the Tax Reform Act’s elimination of corporate alternative minimum tax and the ability to receive refunds of AMT credit carryovers in July 2019 and July 2020, respectively. The Company expects to receive additional income tax refunds of $0.3 million in 2021 and $0.3 million in 2022.

 

We file income tax returns in multiple jurisdictions that are subject to review by various U.S and state taxing authorities. Our U.S. federal income tax returns for 2016 through 2019, and certain state returns from 2014 to present, are open to examination.

Note 11 — Shareholders’ Equity

 

Treasury Stock

 

On November 14, 2016, our Board authorized a share repurchase program under which we may repurchase up to 2,500 shares of common stock. Under the share repurchase program, we may repurchase shares from time to time using a variety of methods, which may include open market transactions and privately negotiated transactions.

 

The Company did not purchase any shares during the three months ended September 30, 2020. Since the inception of the November 14, 2016 authorization, we have repurchased 780 shares of common stock for $0.3 million, and, as of September 30, 2020, we had remaining authorization to repurchase 1,720 additional shares. The treasury stock held as of September 30, 2020 was acquired at an average price of $8,496.47 per share.

 

Following is a summary of treasury share activity:

Note 12 — Segment Information

 

The Legacy Businesses and Nexsan Business are presented in our Consolidated Statements of Operations as discontinued operations and are not included in segment results for all periods presented. See Note 4 - Discontinued Operations for further information about these divestitures.

 

14

 

As of September 30, 2020, the asset management business and sports technology platform are our reportable segments.

 

We evaluate segment performance based on revenue and operating loss. The operating loss reported in our segments excludes corporate and other unallocated amounts. Although such amounts are excluded from the business segment results, they are included in reported consolidated results. The corporate and unallocated operating loss includes costs that are not allocated to the business segments in management’s evaluation of segment performance, such as litigation settlement expense, corporate expense and other expenses.

 

Net revenue, operating loss from continuing operations and assets by segment were as follows:

Note 13 — Litigation, Commitments and Contingencies

 

The Company may be a party, as either a sole or joint defendant or plaintiff, in various lawsuits, claims and other legal matters that arise in the ordinary course of conducting business (including litigation relating to our Legacy Businesses and discontinued operations). All such matters involve uncertainty and accordingly, outcomes that cannot be predicted with assurance. As of November 16, 2020, we are unable to estimate with certainty the ultimate aggregate amount of monetary liability or financial impact that we may incur with respect to these matters. It is reasonably possible that the ultimate resolution of these matters, individually or in the aggregate, could materially affect our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

 

15

 

Indemnification Obligations

 

In the normal course of business, we periodically enter into agreements that incorporate general indemnification language. Performance under these indemnities would generally be triggered by a breach of terms of the contract or by a supportable third-party claim. There have historically been no material losses related to such indemnifications. As of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, estimated liability amounts associated with such indemnifications were not material.

 

Environmental Matters

 

Our Legacy Business operations and indemnification obligations resulting from our spinoff from 3M subject us to liabilities arising from a wide range of federal, state and local environmental laws. For example, from time to time we have received correspondence from 3M notifying us that we may have a duty to defend and indemnify 3M with respect to certain environmental claims such as remediation costs. Environmental remediation costs are accrued when a probable liability has been determined and the amount of such liability has been reasonably estimated. These accruals are reviewed periodically as remediation and investigatory activities proceed and are adjusted accordingly. We did not have any environmental accruals as of September 30, 2020. Compliance with environmental regulations has not had a material adverse effect on our financial results.

 

Note 14 — Related Party Transactions

 

On January 1, 2019, the Company and Clinton Group Inc. (“Clinton”) entered into a management service agreement (the “Management Service Agreement”), pursuant to which Clinton agreed to provide certain services to the Company.

 

Prior to being appointed our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, respectively, Daniel A. Strauss served as our Chief Executive Officer, and Francis Ruchalski served as our Chief Financial Officer, pursuant to the terms of the Amended and Restated Services Agreement we entered into with Clinton on March 31, 2019 (the “Amended Services Agreement”) Clinton also made available other employees of Clinton as necessary to manage certain business functions as deemed necessary in the sole discretion of Clinton to provide other management services.

As consideration for the Securities Subscription, SportBLX received a one-time upfront subscription fee of $150,000 and will receive a monthly subscription fee of $100,000 during the first year of the contract. The fee increases to $137,500, monthly, for the remaining year of the initial term.

The agreement also provides fees of $75,000 for each new tradable asset listed by the customer on the Platform. The Securities Subscription is effective for a two year term and automatically renews for consecutive one-year renewal terms unless either party provides notice to the other party of its intention not to renew prior to the end of the initial or renewal term. Either party may terminate the agreement for convenience upon 30 days’ notice to the other party.

On May 13, 2019, GlassBridge and the U.S. Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (the “PBGC”) entered into an agreement to terminate the Imation Cash Balance Pension Plan based on the PBGC’s findings that (i) the Plan did not meet the minimum funding standard required under Section 412 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended; (ii) the Plan would be unable to pay benefits when due; and (iii) the Plan should be terminated to protect the interests of the Plan participants. GlassBridge and all other members of the Company’s controlled group were liable to the PBGC for all obligations under ERISA in connection with the Plan’s termination. On October 1, 2019, the Company entered into a settlement agreement (“Settlement Agreement”) with the PBGC. Pursuant to the terms of the Settlement Agreement, GlassBridge paid $3,000,000 in cash to PBGC on October 3, 2019 (the “Settlement Payment”). Per the terms of the Settlement Agreement and following the Settlement Payment on October 3, 2019, the PBGC released all Controlled Group Members as of January 6, 2020.

 

On August 20, 2019, the Company effected a 1:200 reverse common stock split.

 

On October 1, 2019, the Company sold to Orix PTP Holdings, LLC (“Orix”), for $17,562,700, 20.1% of the outstanding stock of Adara, until then a Company wholly owned subsidiary, together with two promissory notes of Adara Enterprises, Inc. to the Company in total principal amount of $13,000,000. In July 2020, an Adara wholly owned subsidiary assumed the obligations under the notes, and the subsidiary was sold to George E. Hall for $1.00, after the subsidiary had distributed to Adara all of the subsidiary’s assets, except for its general partnership interest in The Sports & Entertainment Fund, L.P., which holds a $17.8 million investment, and the related commodities pool operator registration and $1,790,000 in cash. Also, the Company repurchased the Adara shares from Orix and prepaid a $16 million note that it issued to Orix in March 2020 (the proceeds of which were invested in The Sports & Entertainment Fund, L.P.), together with $171,000 in interest. As a result of an in-kind distribution from Adara, the Company became the direct owner of GlassBridge Arrive Investor, LLC, which is the investment arm of Roc Nation, as well as of 50.1% of the outstanding shares of Sport-BLX, Inc., and preferred interests in the European levies claims. The Company financed the foregoing transactions, in part, from proceeds of an $11,000,00 loan to Adara from ESW Holdings, LLC (“ESW”), which is due January 20, 2021, with $1,100,000 interest. Adara granted to ESW a security interest in all of Adara’s assets pursuant to the loan agreement, which, in addition to customary representations and warranties and covenants, prohibits Adara from entering into any agreement without ESW’s consent, or, subject to exceptions, incur or prepay any indebtedness, incur any liens, or make distributions on or payments with respect to its shares, and requires Adara to maintain at least $500,000 in cash or cash equivalents in controlled accounts. ESW may accelerate the loan upon a payment default; covenant default, in some cases after notice; a material adverse change in Adara’s business, assets, financial condition, ability to repay the loan, or in the perfection, value, or priority of ESW’s security interests in Adara’s assets; attachment of a material part of Adara’s assets; Adara’s or the Company’s insolvency; Adara’s default in its obligations under other agreements totaling $100,000 or more; Adara’s incurring judgments or settlements totaling $100,000 or more; or a change in Adara’s ownership; or if any material representation by Adara under the loan agreement is untrue. The loan agreement provides that, in event of Adara’s default other than for a material representation, Adara and ESW will act in good faith to effect a reorganization of Adara in bankruptcy, pursuant to which ESW acquires from the Company all equity in Adara and certain of its assets, for $8,500,000, and Adara’s cash, shares of its subsidiaries, and a right to use Adara software and intellectual property within the sports industry are distributed to the Company. In connection with the loan agreement, the Company pledged to ESW all of the Company’s Adara stock and 30% of the outstanding stock of Sport-BLX, Inc., and, ESW purchased 100 shares of Adara’s Series A Preferred Stock for a total purchase price of $25,000. Upon any liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of Adara, each holder of Series A Preferred Stock is entitled to a liquidation preference of $1,500 per share and no more.

 

On December 12, 2019, the Company purchased from Joseph A. De Perio (“Mr. De Perio”) 17,076 shares of SportBLX common stock in exchange for $606,198 in cash and a $5,455,782 principal amount promissory note bearing interest at a 5% annual rate, due December 12, 2022. On the same date, the Company purchased from Mr. Hall, 37,924 shares of SportBLX common stock in exchange for $1,346,302 in cash and a $12,116,718 principal amount promissory note bearing 5% interest, due December 12, 2022. Interest under the notes is payable in arrears on the first day of each calendar quarter in cash, or, at the Company’s option, in shares of common stock of the Company at a price reflecting market value.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Based on an evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) as of September 30, 2020, the end of the period covered by this report, the Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Strauss, and the Chief Financial Officer, Francis Ruchalski, have concluded that the disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f). Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of September 30, 2020 based on the guidelines established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO 2013). Our internal control over financial reporting includes policies and procedures that provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external reporting purposes in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. During the quarter ended September 30, 2020, management concluded there was no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

See Note 13 - Litigation, Commitments and Contingencies in our Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1 herein for further information regarding our legal proceedings.

 

The Company is subject to various lawsuits, claims and other legal matters that arise in the ordinary course of conducting business (including litigation relating to our Legacy Businesses and discontinued operations). All such matters involve uncertainty and, accordingly, outcomes that cannot be predicted with assurance. As of September 30, 2020, we are unable to estimate with certainty the ultimate aggregate amount of monetary liability or financial impact that we may incur with respect to these matters. It is reasonably possible that the ultimate resolution of these matters, individually or in the aggregate, could materially affect our financial condition, results of the operations and cash flows. Similarly, the Company is the plaintiff in a number of matters in the United States and elsewhere where the potential outcomes could be materially beneficial to the Company. These outcomes are also uncertain.
