NOTE 5 COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Placement Agency Agreement
On January 6, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement with an investment banker to provide general financial advisory and investment banking services. Services included, but not limited to in the agreement are to provide a valuation analysis of the Company, assist management and advise the Company with respect to its strategic planning process and business plans including an analysis of markets, positioning, financial models, organizational structure, potential strategic alliances, capital requirements, potential national listing and working closely with the Companys management team to develop a set of long and short-term goals with special focus on enhancing corporate and shareholder value. The Agreement is for an initial term of six months. The Company shall pay a non-refundable fee accruing at the rate of $10,000 per month, for the term of the agreement. These advisory fee payments will be accrued and deferred for payment until the earlier of 1) closing of a financing described in the agreement, 2) a closing of interim funding at which point fifty percent (50%) of the outstanding monthly advisory fee will be payable on the last day of the month following closing of the interim financing or 3) the termination of the agreement. The Company issued to the investment banker 26,058 vested shares of the Companys common stock as of the execution date of this agreement. In addition, the Company issued warrants for the purchase of 8,629 shares of the Companys common stock. The warrants shall have a five-year term and an exercise price of $10.50.
On January 27, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement with a consultant to provide advisory services for an initial period of six months. The consultant will assist the Company with its objective of evaluating financing and other strategic options in connection with operational expansion and respond to any opportunities that arise in regard to strategic partnerships/acquisition/joint ventures or other business relationships that may advance revenue growth and enterprise value. Upon a qualified financing of at least $1,500,000 through a party introduced by the consultant, the Company agreed to issue up to $90,000 in equity or cash at the same rate and terms as the basis of the financing. In consideration for development services thirty days from the execution of this agreement, 572 shares of restricted common stock of the Company will be granted to the consultant or assigns and be issued within fifteen days of the grant. Also, 858 additional shares shall be granted to the consultant or assigns on completion of any transactions with a potential participant. In consideration for advisory services, the non-refundable sum of $5,000 was payable upon execution of the agreement with a further $5,000 to be deferred and paid upon the completion of any transaction with a potential participant. On May 5, 2016, the Company cancelled the agreement due to lack of performance with the consultant who was to provide advisory services for an initial period of six months. The Company paid an initial amount of $2,500 and no further compensation will be paid. No shares of common stock were issued in connection with this agreement.
On May 13, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement with a consultant in the business of providing services for management consulting, business advisory, shareholder information and public relations for a period of three months. During the Term of this Agreement, the Company will pay to the Consultant the sum of $3,000 per month. The Company may accrue monthly fees without payment to the consultant until the company closes a qualified financing other than the first months retainer. Upon signing, the Company issued to the Consultant 3,572 shares of the Companys restricted common stock for a total purchase price of $100 and recorded $27,400 as a prepaid asset to be amortized over the three-month term. The Company amortized $27,400 to expense as of December 31, 2016. As of August 14, 2016, the agreement had expired and was not renewed in writing by the parties as called for in the agreement. The Company continues to work with the Principal on certain potential funding arrangements that were started (but not consummated) during the period in which the contract was in effect.
On September 1, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement with a registered investment broker, for the purposes of securing interim and long-term funding for the Company. During the ninety-day term of this agreement, the Company was to pay the broker $50,000, certain travel expenses, plus 7% cash fee of the aggregate principle amount raised on a qualified financing. The Company has paid an initial amount of $6,500 to the broker and the broker sent materials to qualified investors. The Company has cancelled the agreement effective December 27, 2016 and the initial fee of $6,500 was refunded to the Company on February 1, 2017 less a $250 fee.
On August 10, 2015, the Company entered into an agreement with FacilityTeam of Ontario, Canada to settle a dispute that had arisen concerning payments for software development services. The Company strongly believed that FacilityTeam did not deliver the products promised and felt that we would prevail in arbitration called for by the contract between the parties. Ultimately, the Company opted to settle the matter for the cost of the litigation which was estimated be at least $60,000; rather than spend further resources on defending the claim and pursuing the counterclaim against FacilityTeam. The Company agreed to pay to FacilityTeam $2,500 per month starting October 1, 2015 for 24 months and taking a charge in the third quarter of 2015 for the settlement amount of $60,000. On December 12, 2016, the Company was notified that it was in breach of settlement with a previous vendor, FacilityTeam based in in Ontario, Canada alleging failure to make payments against that settlement. On December 28, 2016, the Company subsequently agreed to a modified payment schedule as part of a post judgement settlement for the amounts still outstanding. The final payment was made on March 7, 2017.
On May 12, 2016, in Broward County, Florida, the holder of two convertible notes entered into in March and June 2015 in the amount of $50,000 and $46,975 respectively sued the company alleging that the Company was in default for not making scheduled principal and interest payment and failing to convert a portion of the notes into the Companys common stock. As previously reported, on May 23, 2016, we filed a lawsuit in Broward County, Florida against, Greentree Financial Group, Inc., the holder of $96,975 aggregate principal amount of our convertible notes. The suit alleges, amongst other things, that the officers and directors of Greentree that entered into the notes, failed to disclose legal facts with respect to their personal conduct in the past, which, had the Company known, would have made it unlikely that such transaction would have been consummated.
The Company owes the principal and interest due under the notes and sought to pay principal and interest of the note which first came due, but its offer was rejected. On January 23, 2017, the Company executed a settlement agreement with Greentree Financial Group resolving a pending lawsuit concerning these two convertible notes. The settlement called for payment of $150,000 within 45 days of execution thereof and resolves all outstanding obligations related to the Notes. The payment was made on March 7, 2017.
Delinquent Payroll Taxes Payable
As reported previously, the Company has a delinquent payroll tax payable at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016 in the amount of $655,755 and $400,076, respectively. The delinquent portion is included in the payroll taxes payable balance of $703,532 and $444,476, respectively, as shown on the Companys consolidated balance sheet. The IRS has accepted the Companys offer of a monthly installment agreement in the amount of $25,000 commencing March 28, 2016. The monthly installment payments made as of March 31, 2017 totals $250,000.
