Samsung Settlement


As previously reported on its Current Report on Form 8-K filed on December 6, 2018, the Company was in arbitration pending before the International Chamber of Commerce with Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (“ Samsung ”) to resolve a dispute regarding royalties payable to the Company under a software license agreement the Company had with Samsung. After arbitration hearings held in May 2018, on November 27, 2018, the International Chamber of Commerce notified the Company of its decision and issuance of an arbitration award (the “ Award ”), which the Company received on November 29, 2018. Pursuant to the Award, the Company has the obligation to pay Samsung an aggregate of $2,546,401 plus an interest of 9% per annum starting May 16, 2018 until full payment is paid. Samsung was also awarded its attorney’s fees and expenses in the aggregate amount of approximately $1.73 million.


On April 26, 2019, the Company and certain subsidiaries of the Company entered into a settlement agreement (the “ Settlement Agreement ”) with Samsung, pursuant to which the Company and Samsung agreed to release and discharge the other party and affiliates thereof from all actions and claims, including, but not limited to, claims and demands that were or could have been raised in connection with the Award. In exchange for such mutual release, the Company agreed to pay Samsung $4,279,945 (the “ Settlement Amount ”) and accrued interest from March 31, 2019 on the outstanding Settlement Amount at a rate of 9% per annum (the “ Settlement Payment ”). The Settlement Payment will be made over a period of 24 months beginning on March 31, 2019 (the “ Payment Term ”) with a monthly installment of $178,331.04 plus interest.
