Item 8.01 Other Events
On September 24, 2018, the Company notified Maxim Group LLC of its intent to file a duly executed Demand for Arbitration for breach of contract with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”). Maxim Group received the Company’s Notice and without first filing a required notification to the Company, it filed a Statement of Claim with FINRA alleging breach of contract and the Company’s failure to remove the restrictive legend from a stock certificate in the amount of 500,000 shares.
On October 1, 2018, the Company filed an Answer and Statement of Counterclaim with FINRA. In this filing, the Company asserted an affirmative defense of Maxim Group’s failure to serve the Company with a written demand for arbitration. The Company also asserted a second affirmative defense that Maxim Group did not have clean hands and was entitled to no relief due to Maxim Group’s breach of contract. The Company counterclaimed stated that it filed a demand for arbitration between the parties and alleged Maxim Group’s failure to perform the required services under its Financial Advisory Agreement of July 9, 2015, as amended on January 10, 2018. The Company is seeking the return of the 4,000,000 shares of common stock it previously paid to Maxim Group and damages in the amount determined at the hearing.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
