EXPLANATORY NOTE

As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Trans World Entertainment Corporation (the “Company”) on May 8, 2020, the Company delayed the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic and in reliance on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s order under Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and certain rules thereunder (Release No. 34-88465). The Company’s key employees were affected by travel and work restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, the Company’s operations are primarily located in New York and Washington and both states imposed statewide lockdowns to address the COVID-19 pandemic. As a consequence, the Company’s accounting personnel, who are working remotely, have only limited access to the Company’s financial records. In addition, the COVID-19 outbreak has made collection of data slower and more difficult. The voluntary and mandatory measures implemented by the Company to reduce the spread of the virus have limited access to many of the areas where the Company operates, including its corporate offices and facilities, resulting in limited support from staff. These restrictions impacted the Company’s ability to complete its internal quarterly review, including an evaluation of the various impacts of COVID-19 on the Company’s financial statements and to prepare and complete the Form 10-Q in a timely manner.

TRANS WORLD ENTERTAINMENT CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO INTERIM CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)
May 2, 2020 and May 4, 2019

Note 1. Nature of Operations

Trans World Entertainment Corporation, which, together with its consolidated subsidiaries, is referred to herein as “the Company”, “we”, “us” and “our”, was incorporated in New York in 1972. We own 100% of the outstanding common stock of etailz, Inc (“etailz”), through which our principal operations are conducted. etailz provides a platform of software and services to empower brands to grow their online distribution channels on digital marketplaces such as Amazon, Walmart, eBay, among others. The Company helps brands achieve their online retail goals through its innovative and proprietary technology, tailored strategies, and mutually beneficial partnerships.

etailz is positioning itself to be a brand’s ultimate online growth partner and is guided by seven core
principles:

Partner Obsession
Results
Insights Driven
Ownership
Simplicity
Diversity and Teamwork
Innovation
 

Previously, the Company also operated fye, a chain of retail entertainment stores and e-commerce sites, www.fye.com and www.secondspin.com.  On February 20, 2020, the Company consummated the sale of substantially all of the assets and certain of the liabilities relating to fye to a subsidiary of 2428391 Ontario Inc. o/a Sunrise Records (“Sunrise Records”) pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement (as amended, the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) dated January 23, 2020, by and among the Company, Record Town, Inc., Record Town USA LLC, Record Town Utah LLC, Trans World FL LLC, Trans World New York, LLC, 2428392 Inc., and Sunrise Records. (the “FYE Transaction”).

Liquidity and Cash Flows:

The Company’s primary sources of liquidity are its borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility, available cash and cash equivalents, and to a lesser extent, cash generated from operations. Our cash requirements relate primarily to working capital needed to operate and grow our business, including funding operating expenses and the purchase of inventory. Our ability to achieve profitability and meet future liquidity needs and capital requirements will depend upon numerous factors, including the timing and amount of our  net revenue; the timing and amount of our operating expenses; the timing and costs of working capital needs; succesful implementation of our strategy and planned activities; and our ability to overcome the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
The Company incurred a loss from continued operations of $5.4 million and $4.3 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 and May 4, 2019, respectively. The increase in the loss from operations was primarily attributable to severance expenses of $1.6 million incurred during the quarter. In addition, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $114.4 million at May 2, 2020 and net cash used in operating activities for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 was $ 6.5 million. Net cash used in operating activities for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2019 was 6.2 million.
 
As disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed June 15, 2020, The Company experienced negative cash flows from operations during fiscal 2019 and 2018 and we expect to incur net losses in 2020.

9

The ability of the Company to meet its liabilities and to continue as a going concern is dependent on improved profitability, the continued implementation of the strategic initiative to reposition etailz as a platform of software and services, the availability of future funding, implementation of one or more corporate initiatives to reduce costs at the parent company level (which could include a voluntary delisting from NASDAQ and deregistering of our Common Stock in order to substantially eliminate the costs associated with being a public company), satisfying all unassumed liabilities of the fye segment and other strategic alternatives, including selling all or part of the remaining business or assets of the Company, and overcoming the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

There can be no assurance that we will be successful in further implementing our business strategy or that the strategy, including the completed initiatives, will be successful in sustaining acceptable levels of sales growth and profitability. In addition, the proceeds from the PPP Loan are subject to audit and there is a risk of repayment. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 were prepared on the basis of a going concern which contemplates that the Company will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business. The ability of the Company to meet its liabilities and to continue as a going concern is dependent on continued improved profitability and the other factors set forth in the preceding paragraph. For the next 12 months, management believes that the Company’s existing liquidity will be adequate to fund its working capital needs. Management anticipates any cash requirements due to a shortfall in cash from operations will be funded by the Company’s revolving credit facility, as discussed in note 9 in the interim condensed consolidated financial statements.

At May 2, 2020, we had cash and cash equivalents of $7.1 million, net working capital of $10.4 million, and outstanding borrowings of $4.5 million on our revolving credit facility, as further discussed below.

In January 2017, the Company amended and restated its revolving credit facility (“Credit Facility”).  As of February 1, 2020, the Company had borrowings of $13.1 million under the Credit Facility and as of February 2, 2019 the Company did not have any borrowings under the Credit Facility.  Peak borrowings under the Credit Facility during fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2018 were $35.9 million and $35.7 million, respectively.  As of February 1, 2020 and February 2, 2019, the Company had no outstanding letters of credit. The Company had $12 million and $41 million available for borrowing under the Credit Facility as of February 1, 2020 and February 2, 2019, respectively.

On February 20, 2020, in conjunction with the FYE Transaction, the Company fully satisfied its obligations under the Credit Facility through proceeds received from the sale of the fye business and borrowings under the New Credit Facility, as further discussed below, and the Credit Facility is no longer available to the Company.

New Credit Facility
On February 20, 2020, etailz Inc. entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with Encina Business Credit, LLC (“Encina”) as administrative agent, under which the lenders party thereto committed to provide up to $25 million in loans under a three-year, secured revolving credit facility (the “ New Credit Facility”).  Concurrent with the FYE Transaction, the Company borrowed $3.3 million under the New Credit Facility in order to satisfy the remaining obligations of the Company under the aforementioned Credit Facility.

The commitments by the lenders under the New Credit Facility are subject to borrowing base and availability restrictions. Up to $5.0 million of the New Credit Facility may be used for the making of swing line loans.

10

As of May 2, 2020, borrowings under the Credit Facility were $4.5 million. The Company had $5.0 million available for borrowing as of May 2, 2020. As of May 2, 2020, unamortized debt issuance costs of $1.1 million are included in “Other assets” on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet.

Subordinated Debt Agreement
On March 30, 2020, the Company and etailz (the “Loan Parties”) entered into Amendment No. 1 to the Loan Agreement (the “Amendment”). Pursuant to the Amendment, among other things, (i) the Company was added as “Parent” under the Amended Loan Agreement, (ii) the Company granted a first priority security interest in substantially all of the assets of the Company, including inventory, accounts receivable, cash and cash equivalents and certain other collateral, and (iii) the Loan Agreement was amended to (a) permit the incurrence of certain subordinated indebtedness under the Subordinated Loan Agreement (as defined below) and (b) limit the Company’s ability to incur additional indebtedness, create liens, make investments, make restricted payments or specified payments and merge or acquire assets.

On March 30, 2020, the Loan Parties entered into a Subordinated Loan and Security Agreement (the “Subordinated Loan Agreement”) with the lenders party thereto from time to time (the “Lenders”) and TWEC Loan Collateral Agent, LLC (“Collateral Agent”), as collateral agent for the Lenders, pursuant to which the Lenders made a $5.2 million secured term loan (the “Subordinated Loan”) to etailz with a scheduled maturity date of May 22, 2023. As of May 2, 2020, unamortized debt issuance costs of $0.2 million are included in “Long Term Debt” on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet.

Directors Jonathan Marcus, Thomas Simpson, and Michael Reickert are the chief executive officer of Alimco Re Ltd. (“Alimco”), the managing member of Kick-Start III, LLC and Kick-Start IV, LLC (“Kick-Start”), and a trustee of the Robert J. Higgins TWMC Trust (the “Trust”), an affiliate of RJHDC, LLC (“RJHDC” and together with Alimco and Kick-Start, “Related Party Entities”), respectively.  The Related Party Entities are parties to the Subordinated Loan Agreement.

Paycheck Protection Program
On April 17, 2020, etailz received loan proceeds of $2.0 million (the “PPP Loan”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”). The PPP Loan, which was in the form of a promissory note (the “Note”), dated April 10, 2020, between etailz and First Interstate Bank, as the lender, matures on April 17, 2022, bears interest at a fixed rate of 1% per annum, and is payable in monthly installments of $112,975.55 commencing on November 10, 2020. While under the terms of the PPP, some or all of the PPP Loan amount may be forgiven if the PPP Loan proceeds are used for qualifying expenses as described in the CARES Act and the Note, such as payroll costs, benefits, rent, and utilities, there is no assurance that the Company will be successful in qualifying for and receiving forgiveness on the PPP Loan amount.

In addition to the aforementioned current sources of existing working capital, the Company may explore certain other strategic alternatives that may become available to the Company, as well continuing our efforts to generate additional sales and increase margins.  However, at this time the Company has no commitments to obtain any additional funds, and there can be no assurance such funds will be available on acceptable terms or at all, should we require such additional funds.  If the Company is unable to improve its operations, it may be required to obtain additional funding, and the Company’s financial condition and results of operations may be materially adversely affected.

11

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 were prepared on the basis of a going concern which contemplates that the Company will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business. The ability of the Company to meet its liabilities and to continue as a going concern is dependent on improved profitability, the performance improvement plan implemented for the etailz segment and the availability of future funding. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.
 
Furthermore, broad market and industry factors may seriously harm the market price of our Common Stock, regardless of our operating performance, and may adversly impact our ability to raise additional funds, should we require such additional funds. Similarly, if our Common Stock is delisted from the NASDAQ Capital Market, it may also limit our ability to raise additional funds.

FYE Transaction
On February 20, 2020, the Company consummated the sale of substantially all of the assets and certain of the liabilities relating to fye to a subsidiary of Sunrise Records pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement dated January 23, 2020, by and among the Company, Record Town, Inc., Record Town USA LLC, Record Town Utah LLC, Trans World FL LLC, Trans World New York, LLC, 2428392 Inc., and Sunrise Records.
 
The fye business is reported as discontinued operations in our Consolidated Statements of Income, and the related assets and liabilities have been presented as held-for-sale in the Consolidated Balance Sheets, through their dates of disposal. These changes have been applied to all periods presented. Unless otherwise noted, discussion within these notes to the consolidated financial statements relates to continuing operations. Refer to Note 3 for additional information on discontinued operations.

Impact of COVID-19

To date, as a direct result of COVID-19, most of our employees are working remotely. The full extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will directly or indirectly impact our business, results of operations and financial condition, including expenses, reserves and allowances, and employee-related amounts, will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain, including as a result of new information that may emerge concerning COVID-19 and the actions taken to contain or treat it, as well as the economic impact on local, regional, national and international customers and markets, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted at this time. Management is actively monitoring this situation and the possible effects on its financial condition, liquidity, operations, industry, and workforce. Given the daily evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak and the response to curb its spread, currently we are not able to estimate the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak to our results of operations, financial condition, or liquidity.

In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, we activated our business continuity program, led by our Executive Team in conjunction with Human Resources, to help us manage the situation. In mid-March, we transitioned our corporate office staff to work 100% remotely. This process was aided through the implementation of a flexible work from home policy rolled out to the organization in fiscal 2019, having a companywide communication platform for instant messaging and video conferencing, and cloud-based critical business applications. However, while our business is not dependent on physical office locations nor travel, having a 100% remote workforce does present increased operational risk. Our leadership team believes we have the necessary controls in place to mitigate these impacts and allow the team to continue to operate effectively remotely as long as required by State guidelines.

12

While e-commerce has largely benefited from the closure of brick-and-mortar locations as consumer spending has been pushed online to marketplaces such as Amazon and Walmart, the industry nor our organization has been immune to the impact to our supply chains. For instance, in March, Amazon reduced replenishment in their fulfillment centers to essential items which limited a significant percentage of  SKUs carried by etailz and a number of etailz’ partners shut their warehouses or suffered limited processing capacity due to COVID-19. While Amazon has since lifted restrictions and the leadership team executed contingency plans to mitigate the adverse impact from these restrictions, this highlights the fluid nature of COVID-19 across supply chains.

Additionally, since the beginning of the pandemic, tens of millions of Americans have lost their jobs, significantly increasing the risk of near-term economic contraction in the United States that may affect e-commerce sales. The risk of a second wave or increased numbers of positive COVID-19 cases also presents further risk to supply chains. Leadership is actively monitoring the situation and potential impacts on its financial condition, liquidity, operations and workforce but the full extent of the impact is still highly uncertain.

Note 2. Basis of Presentation

The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements consist of Trans World Entertainment Corporation, Record Town, Inc. (“Record Town”), Record Town’s subsidiaries and etailz, Inc., all of which are wholly owned.  All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

The interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The information furnished in these unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements reflects all normal, recurring adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for the fair presentation of such financial statements. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. 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 financial statements, and the reported amounts of net revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted pursuant to rules and regulations applicable to interim financial statements.

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations as of and for the year ended February 1, 2020 contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed June 15, 2020.  The results of operations for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the entire fiscal year ending February 3, 2021.

The Company’s significant accounting policies are the same as those described in Note 1 to the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 1, 2020.

Note 3. Discontinued Operations

On February 20, 2020, the Company consummated the sale of substantially all of the assets and certain of the liabilities relating to fye to a subsidiary of Sunrise Records pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement dated January 23, 2020, by and among the Company, Record Town, Inc., Record Town USA LLC, Record Town Utah LLC, Trans World FL LLC, Trans World New York, LLC, 2428392 Inc., and Sunrise Records.

The results for fye were previously reported in the fye segment. Certain corporate overhead costs and segment costs previously allocated to fye for segment reporting purposes did not qualify for classification within discontinued operations and have been reallocated to continuing operations.

Note 5. Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

Compensation – Retirement Benefits
In March 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-07, “Compensation - Retirement Benefits (Topic 715): Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Cost,” which is intended to improve the presentation of net periodic pension cost and net periodic post-retirement benefit cost in an entity’s financial statements by requiring the service cost component be disaggregated from other components of net benefit costs and presented in the same line item or items as other compensation costs for the employees. Additionally, only the service cost component of net benefit cost is eligible for capitalization when applicable. ASU 2017-07 was effective for the Company’s fiscal year beginning February 3, 2019.  This standard did not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Compensation – Stock Compensation
In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-09, “Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting,” which provided clarity as to what changes to the terms or conditions of share-based payment awards require an entity to apply modification accounting in Topic 718. ASU 2017-09 was effective for the Company for interim and annual periods in fiscal year beginning February 3, 2019.  This standard did not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Recently Adopted and Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments,” which introduced an expected credit loss model for the impairment of financial assets measured at amortized cost. The model replaces the probable, incurred loss model for those assets and instead, broadens the information an entity must consider in developing its expected credit loss estimate for assets measured at amortized cost. This standard will be effective for smaller reporting companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, however early adoption is permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on the consolidated financial statements.

16

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-14, “Compensation—Retirement Benefits—Defined Benefit Plans—General (Subtopic 715-20): Disclosure Framework— Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans”, which removes certain disclosures that are no longer cost beneficial and also includes additional disclosures to improve the overall usefulness of the disclosure requirements to financial statement users. This standard will be effective for public entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, however early adoption is permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on the consolidated financial statements.

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, “Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes” (Topic 740), which simplifies the accounting for income taxes by eliminating certain exceptions to the guidance in ASC 740 related to the approach for intraperiod tax allocation, the methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period and the recognition of deferred tax liabilities for outside basis differences. The standard also simplifies aspects of the enacted changes in tax laws or rates. This standard will be effective for public entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020, however early adoption is permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on the consolidated financial statements.

Recent accounting pronouncements pending adoption not discussed above are either not applicable or are not expected to have a material impact on our consolidated financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

Note 6. Intangible Assets

The determination of the fair value of intangible assets acquired in a business acquisition, including the Company’s acquisition of etailz in 2016, is subject to many estimates and assumptions. Our identifiable intangible assets that resulted from our acquisition of etailz consist of vendor relationships, technology and tradenames. We review amortizable intangible asset groups for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the related carrying amounts may not be recoverable.

During fiscal 2019, the Company fully impaired its vendor relationships and the Company recognized an impairment loss of $0.8 million.

During fiscal 2018, the Company concluded, based on continued operating losses for the etailz segment driven by lower than expected operating results culminating in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 that a triggering event had occurred, and an evaluation of intangible assets for impairment was required.  Intangible assets related to technology and vendor relationships were written down to their estimated fair value at the end of fiscal 2018 resulting in the recognition of asset impairment charges of $16.4 million.

Note 9. Debt

Credit Facility
In January 2017, the Company amended and restated its revolving credit facility (“Credit Facility”).  The Credit Facility provided for commitments of $50 million subject to increase up to $75 million during the months of October to December of each year, as needed.

On February 20, 2020, in conjunction with the FYE Transaction, the Company fully satisfied its obligations under the Credit Facility through proceeds received from the sale of the fye business and borrowings under the new etailz credit facility, as further discussed below, accordingly the Credit Facility is no longer available to the Company.

As of May 4, 2019, borrowings under the Credit Facility were $3.1 million.

New Credit Facility
On February 20, 2020, etailz Inc. entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with Encina Business Credit, LLC (“Encina”), as administrative agent, under which the lenders party thereto committed to provide up to $25 million in loans under a three-year, secured revolving credit facility (the “ New Credit Facility”).  Concurrent with the sale of the fye business, the Company borrowed $3.3 million under the New Credit Facility to satisfy the remaining obligations of the Company under the aforementioned Credit Facility.

The commitments by the lenders under the New Credit Facility are subject to borrowing base and availability restrictions. Up to $5.0 million of the New Credit Facility may be used for the making of swing line loans.

Interest under the New Credit Facility accrues, subject to certain terms and conditions under the Loan Agreement, at a LIBOR Rate or Base Rate, plus, in each case, an Applicable Margin, which is determined by reference to the level of Availability as defined in the Loan Agreement, with the Applicable Margin for LIBOR Rate loans ranging from 4.00% to 4.50% and the Applicable Margin for Base Rate loans ranging from 3.00% to 3.50%.

The New Credit Facility is secured by a first priority security interest in substantially all of the assets of etailz, including inventory, accounts receivable, cash and cash equivalents and certain other collateral of the borrowers and guarantors under the New Credit Facility (collectively, the “Credit Facility Parties”) and by a first priority pledge by the Company of its equity interests in etailz.  The Company will provide a limited guarantee of etailz’s obligations under the New Credit Facility.

19

Among other things, the Loan Agreement limits etailz’s ability to incur additional indebtedness, create liens, make investments, make restricted payments or specified payments and merge or acquire assets.  The Loan Agreement also requires etailz to comply with a financial maintenance covenant.

The Loan Agreement contains customary events of default, including, but not limited to, payment defaults, breaches of representations and warranties, covenant defaults, cross-defaults to other obligations, customary ERISA defaults, certain events of bankruptcy and insolvency, judgment defaults, the invalidity of liens on collateral, change in control, cessation of business or the liquidation of material assets of the Credit Facility Parties taken as a whole, the occurrence of an uninsured loss to a material portion of collateral and failure of the obligations under the New Credit Facility to constitute senior indebtedness under any applicable subordination or intercreditor agreements.

On March 30, 2020, the Company and etailz (the “Loan Parties”) entered into Amendment No. 1 to the Loan Agreement (the “Amendment”). Pursuant to the Amendment, among other things, (i) the Company was added as “Parent” under the Amended Loan Agreement, (ii) the Company granted a first priority security interest in substantially all of the assets of the Company, including inventory, accounts receivable, cash and cash equivalents and certain other collateral, and (iii) the Loan Agreement was amended to (a) permit the incurrence of certain subordinated indebtedness under the Subordinated Loan Agreement (as defined below) and (b) limit the Company’s ability to incur additional indebtedness, create liens, make investments, make restricted payments or specified payments and merge or acquire assets.

As of May 2, 2020, borrowings under the New Credit Facility were $4.5 million. The Company had $5.0 million available for borrowing as of May 2, 2020. As of May 2, 2020, unamortized debt issuance costs of $1.1 million related to the New Credit Facility are included in Other assets on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet.

The Company records short term borrowings at cost, in which the carrying value approximates fair value due to its short-term maturity.

Subordinated Loan Agreement
On March 30, 2020, the Loan Parties entered into a Subordinated Loan and Security Agreement (the “Subordinated Loan Agreement”) with the lenders party thereto from time to time (the “Lenders”) and TWEC Loan Collateral Agent, LLC (“Collateral Agent”), as collateral agent for the Lenders, pursuant to which the Lenders made a $5.2 million secured term loan (the “Subordinated Loan”) to etailz with a scheduled maturity date of May 22, 2023.

Interest on the Subordinated Loan accrues, subject to certain terms and conditions under the Subordinated Loan Agreement, at the rate of twelve percent (12.0%) per annum, compounded on the last day of each calendar quarter by becoming a part of the principal amount of the Subordinated Loan.

The Subordinated Loan is secured by a second priority security interest in substantially all of the assets of the Loan Parties, including inventory, accounts receivable, cash and cash equivalents and certain other collateral of the borrowers and guarantors under the Subordinated Loan Agreement (collectively, the “Second Lien Credit Facility Parties”).  The Company will provide a limited guarantee of etailz’s obligations under the Subordinated Loan.
 
20

Among other things, the Subordinated Loan Agreement limits the Loan Parties’ ability to incur additional indebtedness, create liens, make investments, make restricted payments or specified payments and merge or acquire assets.
 
The Subordinated Loan Agreement contains customary events of default, including, but not limited to, payment defaults, breaches of representations and warranties, covenant defaults, cross-defaults to other obligations, customary ERISA defaults, certain events of bankruptcy and insolvency, judgment defaults, the invalidity of liens on collateral, change in control, cessation of business or the liquidation of material assets of the Second Lien Credit Facility Parties taken as a whole and the occurrence of an uninsured loss to a material portion of collateral.
 
In conjunction with the Subordinated Debt Agreement, the Company issued warrants to purchase up to 244,532 shares of Common Stock to the Related Party Entities (127,208 shares for Alimco, 23,401 shares for Kick-Start, and 93,923 shares for RJHDC), subject to adjustment in accordance with the terms of the Warrants, at an exercise price of $0.01 per share. The value of the warrants of $0.8 million was allocated against the principal proceeds of the Subordinated Debt Agreement.
 
Paycheck Protection Program
 
On April 17, 2020, etailz received loan proceeds of $2.0 million (the “PPP Loan”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”). The PPP Loan, which was in the form of a promissory note (the “Note”), dated April 10, 2020, between etailz and First Interstate Bank, as the lender, matures on April 17, 2022, bears interest at a fixed rate of 1% per annum, and is payable in monthly installments of $112,976 commencing on November 10, 2020. While under the terms of the PPP, some or all of the PPP Loan amount may be forgiven if the PPP Loan proceeds are used for qualifying expenses as described in the CARES Act and the Note, such as payroll costs, benefits, rent, and utilities, there is no assurance that the Company will be successful in qualifying for and receiving forgiveness on the PPP Loan amount.
 
Note 10. Stock Based Compensation

The Company has outstanding awards under three employee stock award plans, the 2005 Long Term Incentive and Share Award Plan, the Amended and Restated 2005 Long Term Incentive and Share Award Plan (the “Old Plans”); and the 2005 Long Term Incentive and Share Award Plan (as amended and restated April 5, 2017 (the “New Plan”).  Collectively, these plans are referred to herein as the Stock Award Plans.  Additionally, the Company had a stock award plan for non-employee directors (the “1990 Plan”).  The Company no longer issues stock options under the Old Plans or the 1990 Plan.

The FYE Transaction in February 2020 constituted a change of control and vesting on all unvested options was accelerated. As a result, unrecognized compensation expense of $0.2 million was recognized in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

Equity awards authorized for issuance under the New Plan total 250,000.  As of May 2, 2020, of the awards authorized for issuance under the Stock Award Plans, 130,696 options were granted and are outstanding, 129,196 of which were vested and exercisable.  Shares available for future grants of options and other share-based awards under the New Plan at May 2, 2020 were 205,608 million.

Other Share Awards include deferred shares granted to Directors and restricted share units granted to executive officers.

As of May 2, 2020, the intrinsic value of stock awards outstanding was $4,700 and the intrinsic value of stock awards exercisable was $3,800.

Note 11. Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss

Accumulated other comprehensive loss that the Company reports in the interim condensed consolidated balance sheets represents net loss, adjusted for the difference between the  accrued pension liability and accrued benefit cost, net of taxes, associated with the Company’s defined benefit plan.   Comprehensive loss consists of net loss and the amortization of pension gains associated with Company’s defined benefit plan for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 and May 4, 2019.

Note 12. Defined Benefit Plan

The Company maintains a non-qualified Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan (“SERP”) for certain executive officers of the Company.  The SERP provides eligible executives defined pension benefits that supplement benefits under other retirement arrangements.  During the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020, the Company did not make any cash contributions to the SERP and presently expects to pay approximately $1.2 million in benefits relating to the SERP during fiscal 2020.

The measurement date for the SERP is the fiscal year end, using actuarial techniques which reflect estimates for mortality, turnover and expected retirement. In addition, management makes assumptions concerning future salary increases. Discount rates are generally established as of the measurement date using theoretical bond models that select high-grade corporate bonds with maturities or coupons that correlate to the expected payouts of the applicable liabilities.
 
The following represents the components of the net periodic pension cost related to the Company’s SERP for the respective periods:

Note 13. Basic and Diluted Loss Per Share

Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing net loss by the weighted average common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted loss per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock (net of any assumed repurchases) that then shared in the earnings of the Company, if any.  It is computed by dividing net loss by the sum of the weighted average shares outstanding and additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the dilutive potential common shares had been issued for the Company’s common stock awards from the Company’s Stock Award Plans.

For the thirteen-week periods ended May 2, 2020 and May 4, 2019, the impact of all outstanding stock awards was not considered because the Company reported net losses in both periods and such impact would be anti-dilutive.  Accordingly, basic and diluted loss per share was the same.  Total anti-dilutive stock awards for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 and May 4, 2019 were approximately 0.1 million shares and 0.2 million shares, respectively.

The following represents basic and diluted loss per share for continuing operations, loss from discontinued operations and net loss for the respective periods:

Note 14. Income Taxes

In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.  The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent on the generation of future taxable income. Management considers the scheduled reversal of taxable temporary differences, projected future taxable income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment.  Based on available objective evidence, management concluded that a full valuation allowance should continue to be recorded against the Company’s deferred tax assets. Management will continue to assess the need for and amount of the valuation allowance against the deferred tax assets by giving consideration to all available evidence to the Company’s ability to generate future taxable income in its conclusion of the need for a full valuation allowance.  Any reversal of the Company’s valuation allowance will favorably impact its results of operations in the period of reversal.  The Company is currently unable to determine whether or when that reversal might occur, but it will continue to assess the realizability of its deferred tax assets and will adjust the valuation allowance if it is more likely than not that all or a portion of the deferred tax assets will become realizable in the future.  The Company has significant net operating loss carry forwards and other tax attributes that are available to offset projected taxable income and current taxes payable, if any, for the year ending February 1, 2020.  The deferred tax impact resulting from the utilization of the net operating loss carry forwards and other tax attributes will be offset by a reduction in the valuation allowance. As of February 1, 2020, the Company had a net operating loss carry forward of $288.1 million for federal income tax purposes and approximately $280.2 million for state income tax purposes that expire at various times through 2039 and are subject to certain limitations and statutory expiration periods.  The Company has not changed its overall conclusion with respect to the need for a valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets, which remain fully reserved.

Note 15. Commitments and Contingencies

Legal Proceedings

The Company is subject to legal proceedings and claims that have arisen in the ordinary course of its business and have not been finally adjudicated.  Although there can be no assurance as to the ultimate disposition of these matters, it is management’s opinion, based upon the information available at this time, that the expected outcome of these matters, individually and in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on the results of operations and financial condition of the Company. As a result, the liability for the cases listed below is remote.

Loyalty Memberships and Magazine Subscriptions Class Action
On November 14, 2018, three consumers filed a punitive class action complaint against the Company and Synapse Group, Inc. in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, Boston Division (Case No.1:18-cv-12377-DPW) concerning enrollment in the Company’s Backstage Pass VIP loyalty program and associated magazine subscriptions.  The complaint alleged, among other things, that the Company’s “negative option marketing” misled consumers into enrolling for membership and subscriptions without obtaining the consumers’ consent.  The complaint sought to represent a nationwide class of “all persons in the United States” who were enrolled in and/or charged for Backstage Pass VIP memberships and/or magazine subscriptions, and to obtain statutory and actual damages on their behalf.

24

On April 11, 2019, the plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed their lawsuit.  On May 8, 2019, two of the plaintiffs from the dismissed lawsuit filed a similar punitive class action in Massachusetts state court (Civ. Act. No. 197CV00331, Mass. Super. Ct. Hampden Cty.), based on the same allegations, but this time seeking to represent only a class of “FYE customers in Massachusetts” who were charged for VIP Backstage Pass Memberships and/or magazine subscriptions.  The Company believes it has meritorious defenses to the plaintiffs’ claims and, if the new case is not dismissed in full, the Company intends to vigorously defend the action.
 
Store Manager Class Actions
There are two pending class actions.  The first, Spack v. Trans World Entertainment Corp. was originally filed in the District of New Jersey, April 2017 (the “Spack Action”).  The Spack Action alleges that the Company misclassified Store Managers (“SMs”) as exempt nationwide.  It also alleges that Trans World improperly calculated overtime for Senior Assistant Managers (“SAMs”) nationwide, and that both SMs and SAMs worked “off-the-clock.”  It also alleges violations of New Jersey and Pennsylvania State Law with respect to calculating overtime for SAMs.  The second, Roper v. Trans World Entertainment Corp., was filed in the Northern District of New York, May 2017 (the “Roper Action”).  The Roper Action also asserts a nationwide misclassification claim on behalf of SMs.  Both actions were consolidated into the Northern District of New York, with the Spack Action being the lead case.

The Company has reached a preliminary settlement with the plaintiffs for both store manager class.  The Company reserved $425,000 for the settlement as of February 2, 2020.
 
Contingent Value Rights
 
On March 30, 2020, the Company entered into the Contingent Value Rights Agreement (the “CVR Agreement”), pursuant to which the Related Party Entities received contingent value rights (“CVRs”) representing the contractual right to receive cash payments from the Company in an amount equal, in the aggregate, to 19.9% of the proceeds (10.35% for Alimco, 1.90% for Kick-Start, and 7.64% for RJHDC) received by the Company in respect of certain intercompany indebtedness owing to it by etailz and/or its equity interest in etailz. The Company does not anticipate these contingencies being met in Fiscal 2020.

Previously, the Company also operated fye, a chain of retail entertainment stores and e-commerce sites, www.fye.com and www.secondspin.com.  On February 20, 2020, the Company consummated the sale of substantially all of the assets and certain of the liabilities relating to fye to a subsidiary of 2428391 Ontario Inc. o/a Sunrise Records (“Sunrise Records”) pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement (as amended, the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) dated January 23, 2020, by and among the Company, Record Town, Inc., Record Town USA LLC, Record Town Utah LLC, Trans World FL LLC, Trans World New York, LLC, 2428392 Inc., and Sunrise Records. (the “FYE Transaction”).

The Company’s results have been, and will continue to be, contingent upon management’s ability to understand industry trends and to manage the business in response to those trends and general economic trends. Management monitors several key performance indicators to evaluate its performance, including:

Net Revenue:  The Company measures total year over year sales growth. The Company measures its sales performance through several key performance indicators including number of partners and active product listings and sales per listing.

26

Cost of Sales and Gross Profit:  Gross profit is calculated based on the cost of product in relation to its retail selling value. Changes in gross profit are impacted primarily by net sales levels, mix of products sold, obsolescence, distribution costs and Amazon commissions and fulfillment fees.

Selling, General and Administrative (“SG&A”) Expenses:  Included in SG&A expenses are payroll and related costs, occupancy charges, general operating and overhead expenses and depreciation charges.

Balance Sheet and Ratios:  The Company views cash and working capital (current assets less current liabilities) as relevant indicators of its financial position.  See Liquidity and Cash Flows section for further discussion of these items.

Net Revenue. Net revenue was $31.6 million for the three months ending May 2, 2020 a 10.1% decrease from the comparable prior year period. The reduction in net revenue was primarily attributable to vendor rationalization conducted at end of 2018 which resulted in a 36% reduction in unique listings on the Fulfilled By Amazon US marketplace (“FBA”) to an average of 9,800 in the thirteen weeks ending May 2, 2020. Rationalization and remediation activities included terminating unprofitable vendors and improving vendor relationships through negotiations focused on improvements to gross margins and supply chain efficiencies. The decline in net revenue due to the decline in listing count was partially offset by increased revenue generated per listing and improved average sales price.

The primary source of revenue is the Retail as a Service (“RaaS”) model, which represented 99.5% of net revenue in the three months ending May 2, 2020. As part of the Company’s diversification strategic initiative, net revenue from non-Amazon US marketplaces increased to 4.4% of net revenue from 3.8% of net revenue in the comparable period from the prior year. The increase was attributable to Amazon International, Walmart and Other Marketplaces.  The following table sets forth net revenue by marketplace as a percentage of total net revenue:

SG&A expenses increased $1.5 million or 21.7%.   The increase in SG&A expenses was due to a $1.7 million in increase in corporate SG&A expenses. Corporate SG&A expenses for the thirteen-weeks ended May 2, 2020 primarily consisted of severance expenses ($1.6 million), labor and related expenses ($0.8 million) professional fees ($1.0 million) an adjustment in the cash surrender value of insurance ($0.3 million)

etailz SG&A expenses declined $0.2 million for the thirteen-weeks ended May 2, 2020 as compared to the comparable prior year period.

Consolidated depreciation and amortization expense for the thirteen-weeks ended May 2, 2020 was $0.5 million as compared to $0.4 million for the comparable prior year period.

Interest Expense.   Interest expense was $0.2 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 compared to $0.1 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019.  The increase in interest expense was due to increased short and long-term borrowings.  See Note 9 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for further detail on the Company’s debt.

Loss From Discontinued Operations.  For the thirteen-weeks ended May 4, 2019, the Company recognized a loss from continuing operations of $3.8 million related to the fye transaction. See Note 3 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information on the loss from discontinued operations.
 
28

Income Tax Expense.   Based on available objective evidence, management concluded that a full valuation allowance should be recorded against the Company’s deferred tax assets   As a result, there were insignificant tax expense amounts recorded during the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 and May 4, 2019.
 
Net Loss. The net loss for the thirteen-weeks ended May 2, 2020 was $5.4 million as compared to $7.8 million for the comparable prior year period.
 
LIQUIDITY

Liquidity and Cash Flows:
 
The Company’s primary sources of liquidity are its borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility, available cash and cash equivalents, and to a lesser extent, cash generated from operations. Our cash requirements relate primarily to working capital needed to operate and grow our business, including funding operating expenses and the purchase of inventory. Our ability to achieve profitability and meet future liquidity needs and capital requirements will depend upon numerous factors, including the timing and amount of our  Net revenue; the timing and amount of our operating expenses; the timing and costs of working capital needs; succesful implementation of our strategy and planned activities; and our ability to overcome the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
The Company incurred a loss from continued operations of $5.4 million and $4.3 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 and May 4, 2019, respectively. The increase in the loss from operations was primarily attributable to severance expenses of $1.6 million incurred during the quarter. In addition, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $114.4 million at May 2, 2020 and net cash used in operating activities for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 was $ 6.5 million. Net cash used in operating activities for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2019 was 6.2 million.
 
As disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed June 15, 2020, The Company experienced negative cash flows from operations during fiscal 2019 and 2018 and we expect to incur net losses in 2020.

The ability of the Company to meet its liabilities and to continue as a going concern is dependent on improved profitability, the continued implementation of the strategic initiative to reposition etailz as a platform of software and services, the availability of future funding, implementation of one or more corporate initiatives to reduce costs at the parent company level (which could include a voluntary delisting from NASDAQ and deregistering of our Common Stock in order to substantially eliminate the costs associated with being a public company), satisfying all unassumed liabilities of the fye segment and other strategic alternatives, including selling all or part of the remaining business or assets of the Company, and overcoming the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

There can be no assurance that we will be successful in further implementing our business strategy or that the strategy, including the completed initiatives, will be successful in sustaining acceptable levels of sales growth and profitability. In addition, the proceeds from the PPP Loan are subject to audit and there is a risk of repayment. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

 The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020 were prepared on the basis of a going concern which contemplates that the Company will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business. The ability of the Company to meet its liabilities and to continue as a going concern is dependent on continued improved profitability and the other factors set forth in the preceding paragraph. For the next 12 months, management believes that the Company’s existing liquidity will be adequate to fund its working capital needs. Management anticipates any cash requirements due to a shortfall in cash from operations will be funded by the Company’s revolving credit facility, as discussed in note 9 in the interim condensed consolidated financial statements.

Furthermore, broad market and industry factors may seriously harm the market price of our Common Stock, regardless of our operating performance, and may adversely impact our ability to raise additional funds, should we require such additional funds. Similarly, if our Common Stock is delisted from the NASDAQ Capital Market, it may also limit our ability to raise additional funds.

Cash used in operations was $6.5 million primarily due to net loss of $5.4 million, a $1.9 million reduction of accounts payable, a $5.0 million decrease in accrued expenses partially offset by a $1.5 million decrease in accounts receivable, a $0.7 million decrease in inventory and a $2.2 million decrease in prepaid expenses and other current assets.

Cash used by financing activities was $1.1 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2020.  The primary use of cash was the payoff of the Credit Facility.  The payoff the Credit Facility was partially offset by borrowings under the New Credit Facility of $4.5 million, the Subordinated Loan Agreement of $5.2 million and borrowings from the Payroll Protection Program of $2.0 million. Cash used in financing activities was $3.1 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, which was comprised entirely of proceeds from short term borrowings.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires that management apply accounting policies and make estimates and assumptions that affect results of operations and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities in the financial statements.  Management continually evaluates its estimates and judgments including those related to merchandise inventory and return costs and income taxes.  Management bases its estimates and judgments on historical experience and other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.  Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in the Form 10-K as of and for the year ended February 1, 2020 includes a summary of the critical accounting policies and methods used by the Company in the preparation of its interim condensed consolidated financial statements.  There have been no material changes or modifications to the policies since February 1, 2020.

PART I – FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Item 3  Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

The Company does not hold any financial instruments that expose it to significant market risk and does not engage in hedging activities.  To the extent the Company borrows under its revolving credit facility, the Company is subject to risk resulting from interest rate fluctuations since interest on the Company’s borrowings under its credit facility can be variable.  If interest rates on the Company’s revolving credit facility were to increase by 25 basis points, and to the extent borrowings were outstanding, for every $1,000,000 outstanding on the facility, interest expense would be increased by $2,500 per year.  For a discussion of the Company’s accounting policies for financial instruments and further disclosures relating to financial instruments, see “Nature of Operations and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form
10-K as of and for the year ended February 1, 2020.

Item 4 Controls and Procedures

 (a)    Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures.    The Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, after evaluating the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) as of May 2, 2020, have concluded that as of such date the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective and designed to ensure that (i) information required to be disclosed by the issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms and (ii) information required to be disclosed by an issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the issuer’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 (b)    Changes in internal controls.    The sale of the fye business was significant to the Company and was consummated on February 20, 2020. The Company intends to take a period of time to incorporate the impact of the transaction into its evaluation of internal control over financial reporting. In connection with the foregoing evaluation by the Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, other than as noted above, there have been no changes in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter covered by this quarterly report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting.

PART II OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1 – Legal Proceedings
The Company is subject to legal proceedings and claims that have arisen in the ordinary course of its business and have not been finally adjudicated.  Although there can be no assurance as to the ultimate disposition of these matters, it is management’s opinion, based upon the information available at this time, that the expected outcome of these matters, individually and in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on the results of operations and financial condition of the Company. As a result, the liability for the cases listed below is remote.

Loyalty Memberships and Magazine Subscriptions Class Action
On November 14, 2018, three consumers filed a punitive class action complaint against the Company and Synapse Group, Inc. in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, Boston Division (Case No.1:18-cv-12377-DPW) concerning enrollment in the Company’s Backstage Pass VIP loyalty program and associated magazine subscriptions.  The complaint alleged, among other things, that the Company’s “negative option marketing” misled consumers into enrolling for membership and subscriptions without obtaining the consumers’ consent.  The complaint sought to represent a nationwide class of “all persons in the United States” who were enrolled in and/or charged for Backstage Pass VIP memberships and/or magazine subscriptions, and to obtain statutory and actual damages on their behalf.

On April 11, 2019, the plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed their lawsuit.  On May 8, 2019, two of the plaintiffs from the dismissed lawsuit filed a similar punitive class action in Massachusetts state court (Civ. Act. No. 197CV00331, Mass. Super. Ct. Hampden Cty.), based on the same allegations, but this time seeking to represent only a class of “FYE customers in Massachusetts” who were charged for VIP Backstage Pass Memberships and/or magazine subscriptions.  The Company believes it has meritorious defenses to the plaintiffs’ claims and, if the new case is not dismissed in full, the Company intends to vigorously defend the action.
 
Store Manager Class Actions
There are two pending class actions.  The first, Spack v. Trans World Entertainment Corp. was originally filed in the District of New Jersey, April 2017 (the “Spack Action”).  The Spack Action alleges that the Company misclassified Store Managers (“SMs”) as exempt nationwide.  It also alleges that Trans World improperly calculated overtime for Senior Assistant Managers (“SAMs”) nationwide, and that both SMs and SAMs worked “off-the-clock.”  It also alleges violations of New Jersey and Pennsylvania State Law with respect to calculating overtime for SAMs.  The second, Roper v. Trans World Entertainment Corp., was filed in the Northern District of New York, May 2017 (the “Roper Action”).  The Roper Action also asserts a nationwide misclassification claim on behalf of SMs.  Both actions were consolidated into the Northern District of New York, with the Spack Action being the lead case.

The Company has reached a preliminary settlement with the plaintiffs for both store manager class.  The Company reserved $425,000 for the settlement as of February 2, 2020.
