Item 14. Indemnification of Directors and Officers

 

Under the provisions of the certificate of incorporation and by-laws of the registrant, as amended, as of the date of this Registration Statement, each person who is or was a director, officer or employee of registrant shall be indemnified by the registrant to the full extent permitted or authorized by the Business Corporation Law of the State of New York, provided that no such indemnification shall be made if a judgment or other final adjudication adverse to such person establishes that his or her acts were committed in bad faith or were the result of active and deliberate dishonesty and were material to the cause of action so adjudicated, or that he or she personally gained in fact a financial profit or other advantage to which he or she was not legally entitled, and provided further that no such indemnification shall be required with respect to any settlement or other non-adjudicated disposition of any threatened or pending action or proceeding unless the Company has given its prior consent to such settlement or other disposition.

 

Under such law, to the extent that such person is successful on the merits of defense of a suit or proceeding brought against such person by reason of the fact that such person is a director or officer of the registrant, such person shall be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) reasonably incurred in connection with such action. If unsuccessful in defense of a third-party civil suit or a criminal suit is settled, such a person shall be indemnified under such law against both (a) expenses (including attorneys’ fees) and (b) judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement if such person acted in good faith and in a manner such person reasonably believed to be in, or not opposed to, the best interests of the registrant, and with respect to any criminal action, had no reasonable cause to believe such person’s conduct was unlawful. If unsuccessful in defense of a suit brought by or in the right of the registrant, or if such suit is settled, such a person shall be indemnified under such law only against expenses (including attorney’s fees) incurred in the defense or settlement of such suit if such person acted in good faith and in a manner such person reasonably believed to be in, or not opposed to, the best interests of the registrant.

The shares of common stock were issued and sold in reliance upon the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

On December 17, 2018, the Company sold 20,408 shares of its common stock to an accredited investor, at a price of $29.40 per share. The shares of common stock were issued and sold in reliance upon the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

 

February 18, 2019

 

On February 18, 2019, the Company entered into a Convertible Promissory Note with LiquidValue Development Pte Ltd in the principal sum of $500,000, of which up to $500,000 could be paid by the conversion of such amount into the Company’s common stock, par value $0.02 per share, up to a maximum of 14,881 shares of common stock (the “Maximum Conversion Amount”), at a conversion price of $33.60 per share. Effective on March 25, 2019, LiquidValue Development Pte Ltd exercised its conversion option and converted the Maximum Conversion Amount under the Note. The shares of common stock were issued in reliance upon the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

 

March 2019

 

In March 2019, the Company issued 130,435 shares of the Company’s common stock in conjunction with the signing of a Master Distributor Agreement with Advanced Cyber Security Corp. (“ACS”) to for the Company to distribute ACS’s EndpointLockV™ cyber security software exclusively in thirteen countries in Asia and Australia, and non-exclusively, in the U.S. and Middle East. The shares of common stock were issued in reliance upon the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

 

November 1, 2019

 

On November 1, 2019, the Company entered into and closed on a subscription agreement (the “Subscription Agreement”) with Mr. Heng Fai Ambrose Chan, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company. Pursuant to the Subscription Agreement, Mr. Chan purchased 200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a purchase price of $9.11 per share, resulting in gross proceeds to the Company of $1,822,200, before deductions for placement agent fees and other expenses (the “Offering”).

 

Aegis Capital Corp. (the “Placement Agent”) acted as the exclusive placement agent for the Offering. In connection with the Offering, the Placement Agent received commissions of 8.0% of the total proceeds raised in the Offering, a non-accountable expense allowance equal to 1.0% of the total proceeds raised in the Officering, and a reimbursement of $35,000 of accountable expenses.

 

The common stock sold in the Offering described above were not registered under the Securities Act, or the securities laws of any state, and were offered and sold in reliance on the exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) and Rule 506(b) of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act, since, among other things, the transactions did not involve a public offering and the securities were acquired for investment purposes only and not with a view to or for sale in connection with any distribution thereof.

There is no cash or other consideration paid by the holder converting the shares and, accordingly, there is no cash or other consideration received by the Company.

Item 17. Undertakings

 

(a) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to section 13(a) or section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
   
(b) Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
   
(c) The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that:

 

  (1) For purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, the information omitted from the form of prospectus filed as part of this registration statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in a form of prospectus filed by the Registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or 497(h) under the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of this registration statement as of the time it was declared effective.
     
  (2) For the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each post-effective amendment that contains a form of prospectus shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
