NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

August 31, 2020

(Unaudited)

 

1. Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of TSR, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”). All significant inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The condensed balance sheet as of May 31, 2020, which has been derived from audited financial statements, and the unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America applying to interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and normally included in the Company’s annual financial statements have been condensed or omitted. These condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of and for the three months ended August 31, 2020 are unaudited; however, in the opinion of management, such statements include all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company for the periods presented. The results of operations for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that might be expected for future interim periods or for the full year ending May 31, 2021. These condensed consolidated interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended May 31, 2020.

 

2. Net Loss Per Common Share

 

Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders of TSR, Inc. by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. The Company had no stock options or other potentially dilutive securities outstanding during any of the periods presented.

 

3. Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers short-term highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents were comprised of the following as of August 31, 2020 and May 31, 2020:

 

    August 31,     May 31,  
    2020     2020  
             
Cash in banks   $ 10,749,923     $ 9,677,848  
Money market funds     52,439       52,174  
    $ 10,802,362     $ 9,730,022  

 

4. Marketable Securities

 

The Company has characterized its investments in marketable securities, based on the priority of the inputs used to value the investments, into a three-level fair value hierarchy. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1), and lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3). If the inputs used to measure the investments fall within different levels of the hierarchy, the categorization is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement of the instrument.

 

Investments recorded in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets are categorized based on the inputs to valuation techniques as follows:

 

Level 1- These are investments where values are based on unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets in an active market the Company has the ability to access.

 

Page 5

 

 

TSR, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

August 31, 2020

(Unaudited)

 

Level 2- These are investments where values are based on quoted market prices that are not active or model derived valuations in which all significant inputs are observable in active markets.

 

Level 3- These are investments where values are derived from techniques in which one or more significant inputs are unobservable.

 

The following are the major categories of assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of August 31, 2020 and May 31, 2020 using quoted prices in active markets for identical assets (Level 1), significant other observable inputs (Level 2) and significant unobservable inputs (Level 3):

 

August 31, 2020   Level 1     Level 2     Level 3     Total  
Equity Securities   $ 40,760     $        -     $      -     $ 40,760  
    $ 40,760     $ -     $ -     $ 40,760  

 

May 31, 2020   Level 1     Level 2     Level 3     Total  
Equity Securities     50,344              -            -     $ 50,344  
    $ 50,344     $ -     $ -     $ 50,344  

 

The Company’s equity securities are classified as trading securities, which are carried at fair value, as determined by quoted market prices, which is a Level 1 input, as established by the fair value hierarchy. The related unrealized gains and losses are included in earnings. The Company’s marketable securities at August 31, 2020 and May 31, 2020 are summarized as follows:

 

          Gross     Gross        
        Unrealized     Unrealized        
  Amortized     Holding     Holding     Recorded  
August 31, 2020   Cost     Gains     Losses     Value  
Current                        
Equity Securities   $ 16,866     $ 23,894     $           -     $ 40,760
    $ 16,866     $ 23,894     $ -     $ 40,760  

 

          Gross     Gross        
          Unrealized     Unrealized        
    Amortized     Holding     Holding     Recorded  
May 31, 2020   Cost     Gains     Losses     Value  
Current                        
Equity Securities   $ 16,866     $ 33,478     $            -     $ 50,344  
    $ 16,866     $ 33,478     $ -     $ 50,344  

 

The Company’s investments in marketable securities consist primarily of investments in equity securities. Market values were determined for each individual security in the investment portfolio. When evaluating the investments for other-than-temporary impairment, the Company reviews factors such as length of time and extent to which fair value has been below cost basis, the financial condition of the issuer, and the Company’s ability and intent to hold the investment for a period of time, which may be sufficient for anticipated recovery in market values.

5. Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

ASC Topic 825, Financial Instruments, requires disclosure of the fair value of certain financial instruments. For cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts and other payables, accrued liabilities, and advances from customers, the amounts presented in the condensed consolidated financial statements approximate fair value because of the short-term maturities of these instruments. The reported amounts of the revolving line of credit and the loan payable approximate fair value given management’s evaluation of the instruments’ current rates compared to market rates of interest and other factors.

 

6. Equity

 

Rights Plan / Preferred Stock

 

On August 29, 2018, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a dividend of one preferred share purchase right (a “Right”) for each share of Common Stock of the Company outstanding on August 29, 2018 (the “Record Date”) to the stockholders of record on that date. In connection with the distribution of the Rights, the Company entered into a Rights Agreement (the “Rights Agreement”), dated as of August 29, 2018, between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as Rights Agent. Each Right entitles the registered holder to purchase from the Company one one-hundredth of a share of Class A Preferred Stock, Series One, par value $0.01 per share (“Preferred Stock”), of the Company at a price of $24.78 per one one-hundredth of a share of Preferred Stock represented by a Right (the “Purchase Price”), subject to adjustment.

 

On August 30, 2019, the Company entered into a settlement and release agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) with Zeff Capital, L.P., Zeff Holding Company, LLC, Daniel Zeff, QAR Industries, Inc., Robert Fitzgerald, Fintech Consulting LLC and Tajuddin Haslani (collectively, the “Investor Parties”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to, among other things, amend and restate the Rights Agreement to provide that a “Distribution Date” (as defined below) shall not occur as a result of any request by any of the Investor Parties calling for a special meeting pursuant to Article II, Section 5 of the Amended and Restated By-Laws of the Company in accordance with the terms of the Settlement Agreement. (See Note 8, “Other Matters.”)

 

Distribution Date; Exercisability; Expiration

 

Initially, the Rights will be attached to all certificates for shares of Common Stock and no separate certificates evidencing the Rights (“Rights Certificates”) will be issued. Until the Distribution Date (as defined below), the Rights will be transferred with and only with shares of Common Stock. As long as the Rights are attached to the shares of Common Stock, the Company will issue one Right with each new share of Common Stock so that all such shares of Common Stock will have Rights attached.

 

The Rights will separate and begin trading separately from the Common Stock, and Rights Certificates will be issued to evidence the Rights, on the earlier to occur of (a) the Close of Business (as such term is defined in the Rights Agreement) on the tenth day following a public announcement, or the public disclosure of facts indicating, that a Person (as such term is defined in the Rights Agreement), group of affiliated or associated Persons or any other Person with whom such Person is Acting in Concert (as defined below) has acquired Beneficial Ownership (as defined below) of 5% or more of the outstanding Common Stock (an “Acquiring Person”) (or, in the event an exchange is effected in accordance with Section 27 of the Rights Agreement and the Board of Directors determines that a later date is advisable, then such later date) or (b) the Close of Business on the tenth Business Day (as such term is defined in the Rights Agreement) (or such later date as may be determined by action of the Board of Directors prior to such time as any Person becomes an Acquiring Person) following the commencement of a tender offer or exchange offer the consummation of which would result in the Beneficial Ownership by a Person or group of 5% or more of the outstanding Common Stock (the earlier of such dates, the “Distribution Date”). As soon as practicable after the Distribution Date, unless the Rights are recorded in book-entry or other uncertificated form, the Company will prepare and cause the Right Certificates to be sent to each record holder of Common Stock as of the Close of Business on the Distribution Date.

An “Acquiring Person” will not include (i) the Company, (ii) any Subsidiary (as such term is defined in the Rights Agreement) of the Company, (iii) any employee benefit plan or employee stock plan of the Company or any Subsidiary of the Company, or any trust or other entity organized, appointed, established or holding Common Stock for or pursuant to the terms of any such plan, or (iv) any Person who or which, at the time of the first public announcement of the Rights Agreement, is a Beneficial Owner of 5% or more of the Common Shares then outstanding (a “Grandfathered Stockholder”). However, if a Grandfathered Stockholder becomes, after such time, the Beneficial Owner of any additional shares of Common Stock (regardless of whether, thereafter or as a result thereof, there is an increase, decrease or no change in the percentage of shares of Common Stock then outstanding beneficially owned by such Grandfathered Stockholder) then such Grandfathered Stockholder shall be deemed to be an Acquiring Person unless, upon such acquisition of Beneficial Ownership of additional shares of Common Stock, such Person is not the Beneficial Owner of 5% or more of the Common Stock then outstanding. In addition, upon the first decrease of a Grandfathered Stockholder’s Beneficial Ownership below 5%, such Grandfathered Stockholder will cease to be a Grandfathered Stockholder. In the event that after the time of the first public announcement of the Rights Agreement, any agreement, arrangement or understanding pursuant to which any Grandfathered Stockholder is deemed to be the Beneficial Owner of Common Stock expires, terminates or no longer confers any benefit to or imposes any obligation on the Grandfathered Stockholder, any direct or indirect replacement, extension or substitution of such agreement, arrangement or understanding with respect to the same or different shares of Common Stock that confers Beneficial Ownership of Common Stock shall be considered the acquisition of Beneficial Ownership of additional shares of Common Stock by the Grandfathered Stockholder and render such Grandfathered Stockholder an Acquiring Person for purposes of the Rights Agreement unless, upon such acquisition of Beneficial Ownership of additional shares of Common Stock, such Person is not the Beneficial Owner of 5% or more of the Common Stock then outstanding.

 

The Rights are not exercisable until the Distribution Date. The Rights will expire on the Close of Business on August 29, 2021 (the “Expiration Date”).

 

Redemption

 

At any time prior to the Close of Business on the earlier of (a) the tenth day following the Stock Acquisition Date or (b) the Expiration Date, the Board of Directors may redeem the Rights in whole, but not in part, at a price of $0.01 per Right (the “Redemption Price”). The “Stock Acquisition Date” is the first date on which there is a public announcement by the Company or an Acquiring Person that an Acquiring Person has become such, or such earlier date as a majority of the Board of Directors becomes aware of the existence of an Acquiring Person. The redemption of the Rights may be made effective at such time, on such basis and with such conditions as the Board of Directors in its sole discretion may establish. Immediately upon the action of the Board of Directors ordering the redemption of the Rights, the right to exercise the Rights will terminate and the only right of the holders of Rights will be to receive the Redemption Price.

 

Preferred Stock Rights

 

The Preferred Stock will not be redeemable. Each share of Preferred Stock will be entitled to receive, when, as and if declared by the Board of Directors, (a) cash dividends in an amount per share (rounded to the nearest cent) equal to 100 times the aggregate per share amount of all cash dividends declared or paid on the Common Stock and (b) a preferential quarterly cash dividend (the “Preferential Dividends”) in an amount equal to $50.00 per share of Preferred Stock less the per share amount of all cash dividends declared on the Preferred Stock pursuant to clause (a) of this sentence. Each share of Preferred Stock will entitle the holder thereof to 100 votes per share, voting together with the holders of the Common Stock as a single class, except as otherwise provided in the Certificate of Designations of Class A Preferred Stock Series One filed by the Company with the Delaware Secretary of State or the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, or Amended and Restated By-laws, as amended. In the event of any consolidation, merger, combination or other transaction in which the shares of Common Stock are exchanged for or changed into other stock or securities, cash and/or any other property, then in any such case each outstanding share of Preferred Stock shall at the same time be similarly exchanged for or changed into the aggregate amount of stock, securities, cash and/or other property (payable in like kind), as the case may be, for which or into which each share of Common Stock is changed or exchanged, multiplied by 100. Upon any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, (a) no distribution shall be made to the holders of shares of stock ranking junior to the Preferred Stock unless the holders of the Preferred Stock shall have received the greater of (i) $100 per share of Preferred Stock plus an amount equal to accrued and unpaid dividends and distributions thereon or (ii) an amount equal to 100 times the aggregate amount to be distributed per share to holders of the Common Stock, and (b) no distribution shall be made to the holders of stock ranking on a parity upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up with the Preferred Stock unless simultaneously therewith distributions are made ratably to the holders of the Preferred Stock and all other shares of such parity stock in proportion to the total amounts to which the holders of shares of Preferred Stock are entitled under clause (a)(i) of this sentence and to which the holders of such parity shares are entitled, in each case upon such liquidation, dissolution or winding up.

The foregoing rights are protected by customary anti-dilution provisions.

 

The foregoing description of the rights of the Preferred Stock does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Certificate of Designations of Class A Preferred Stock Series One.

 

Rights of Holders

Until a Right is exercised, the holder thereof, as such, will have no rights as a stockholder of the Company, including, without limitation, the right to vote or to receive dividends.

 

Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, the Company amended and restated the Rights Agreement on September 3, 2019 to confirm that a Distribution Date (as defined in the Amended and Restated Rights Agreement) shall not occur as a result of any request by any of the Investor Parties for a special meeting of the Company’s stockholders.

 

7. Other Matters

 

From time to time, the Company is party to various lawsuits, some involving material amounts. Management is not aware of any lawsuits that would have a material adverse impact on the consolidated financial position of the Company except for the litigation disclosed below.

 

On October 16, 2018, the Company was served with a complaint filed on October 11, 2018 in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Queens County, by Susan Paskowitz, a stockholder of the Company, against the Company; Joseph F. Hughes and Winifred M. Hughes; former directors Christopher Hughes, Raymond A. Roel, Brian J. Mangan, Regina Dowd, James J. Hill, William Kelly, and Eric Stein; as well as stockholders Zeff Capital, L.P., QAR Industries, Inc. and Fintech Consulting LLC (the “Stockholder Litigation”). The complaint purports to be a class action lawsuit asserting claims on behalf of all minority stockholders of the Company. Ms. Paskowitz alleges the following: the sale by Joseph F. Hughes and Winifred M. Hughes of an aggregate of 819,491 shares of the Company’s common stock (“controlling interest”) to Zeff Capital, L.P., QAR Industries, Inc. and Fintech Consulting LLC was in breach of Joseph F. Hughes’ and Winifred M. Hughes’ fiduciary duties and to the detriment of the Company’s minority stockholders; the former members of the Board of Directors of the Company named in the complaint breached their fiduciary duties by failing to immediately adopt a rights plan that would have prevented Joseph F. Hughes and Winifred M. Hughes from selling their shares and preserved a higher premium for all stockholders; Zeff, QAR, and Fintech are “partners” and constitute a “group.” Ms. Paskowitz also asserts that Zeff Capital, L.P., QAR Industries, Inc. and Fintech Consulting LLC aided and abetted Joseph F. Hughes’ and Winifred M. Hughes’ conduct, and ultimately sought to buy out the remaining shares of the Company at an unfair price.

 

On June 14, 2019, Ms. Paskowitz filed an amended complaint in the Stockholder Litigation in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Queens County against the members of the Board of Directors and Zeff Capital, L.P., QAR Industries, Inc. and Fintech Consulting LLC, which asserts substantially similar allegations to those contained in the October 11, 2018 complaint, but omits Regina Dowd, Joseph F. Hughes and Winifred M. Hughes as defendants. In addition to the former members of the Board of Directors named in the original complaint, the amended complaint names former directors Ira Cohen, Joseph Pennacchio, and William Kelly as defendants. The amended complaint also asserts a derivative claim purportedly on behalf of the Company against the named former members of the Board of Directors. The amended complaint seeks declaratory judgment and unspecified monetary damages. The complaint requests: (1) a declaration from the court that the former members of the Board of Directors named in the complaint breached their fiduciary duties by failing to timely adopt a stockholder rights plan, which resulted in the loss of the ability to auction the Company off to the highest bidder without interference from Zeff Capital, L.P., QAR Industries, Inc. and Fintech Consulting LLC; (2) damages derivatively on behalf of the Company for unspecified harm caused by the former Directors’ alleged breaches of fiduciary duties; (3) damages and equitable relief derivatively on behalf of the Company for the former Directors’ alleged failure to adopt proper corporate governance practices; and (4) damages and injunctive relief against Zeff Capital, L.P., QAR Industries, Inc. and Fintech Consulting LLC based on their knowing dissemination of false or misleading public statements concerning their status as a group. The complaint has not assigned any monetary values to alleged damages.

On July 15, 2019, the Company filed an answer to the amended complaint in the Stockholder Litigation and cross-claims against Zeff Capital, L.P., QAR Industries, Inc. and Fintech Consulting LLC for breaches of their fiduciary duties, aiding and abetting breaches of fiduciary duties, and indemnification and contribution based on their misappropriation of material nonpublic information and their failure to disclose complete and accurate information in SEC filings concerning their group actions to attempt a creeping takeover of the Company, which was thereafter amended on July 26, 2019.

 

In addition, on December 21, 2018, the Company filed a complaint in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York, against Zeff Capital, L.P., Zeff Holding Company, LLC, Daniel Zeff, QAR Industries, Inc., Robert Fitzgerald, Fintech Consulting LLC, and Tajuddin Haslani for violations of the disclosure and anti-fraud requirements of the federal securities laws under Sections 13(d) and 14(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”), and the related rules and regulations promulgated by the SEC, for failing to disclose to the Company and its stockholders their formation of a group and the group’s intention to seize control of the Company (the “SDNY Action”). The complaint requests that the court, among other things, declare that the defendants have solicited proxies without filing timely, accurate and complete reports on Schedule 13D and Schedule 14A in violation of Sections 13(d) and 14(a) of the Exchange Act, direct the defendants to file with the SEC complete and accurate disclosures, enjoin the defendants from voting any of their shares prior to such time as complete and accurate disclosures have been filed, and enjoin the defendants from further violations of the Exchange Act with respect to the securities of the Company.

 

On January 7, 2019, Ms. Paskowitz filed a related action against Zeff Capital, L.P., Zeff Holding Company, LLC, Daniel Zeff, QAR Industries, Inc., Robert Fitzgerald, Fintech Consulting LLC, and Tajuddin Haslani in the Southern District of New York, which asserts claims against them for breach of fiduciary duty and under federal securities laws similar to those asserted in the Company’s action. Although the Company is not a party to Ms. Paskowitz’s action, the court has determined to treat the Company’s and Ms. Paskowitz’s respective actions as related.

 

On August 7, 2019, following the Company’s initial rescheduling of the 2018 Annual Meeting for September 13, 2019 and the filing of Preliminary Proxy Statements by the Company and Zeff Capital, L.P., Zeff Capital, L.P. filed a complaint in the Delaware Court of Chancery against the Company seeking an order requiring the Company to hold its next annual meeting of stockholders on or around September 13, 2019, and obligating the Company to elect Class I and Class III directors at that annual meeting. 

 

On August 13, 2019, the Company filed a motion for preliminary injunction in the SDNY Action in advance of the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting originally scheduled for September 13, 2019, and requested leave to file a motion for expedited discovery. The Court denied the Company’s motion for preliminary injunction but ordered Zeff to “make clear that the second set of directors” described by Zeff in its preliminary proxy statement “is contingent upon the resolution of a proceeding in Delaware Chancery Court.”

On August, 30, 2019, the Company entered into the Settlement Agreement with the Investor Parties with respect to the proxy contest pertaining to the election of directors at the 2018 Annual Meeting, which was held on October 22, 2019. Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, the parties agreed to forever settle and resolve any and all disputes between the parties, including without limitation disputes arising out of or relating to the following litigations:

 

(i) The complaint relating to alleged breaches of fiduciary duties filed on November 1, 2018 by Fintech Consulting LLC against the Company in the Delaware Court of Chancery, which was previously dismissed voluntarily;

 

(ii) The complaint for declaratory and injunctive relief for violations of the federal securities laws filed on December 21, 2018 by the Company against the Investor Parties in the United States District Court in the Southern District of New York;

 

(iii) Cross-claims relating to alleged breaches of fiduciary duties and for indemnification and contribution filed on July 26, 2019 by the Company against the Investor Parties in New York Supreme Court, Queens County; and

 

(iv) The complaint to compel annual meeting of stockholders filed on August 7, 2019 by Zeff Capital, L.P. against the Company in the Delaware Court of Chancery.

 

No party admitted any liability by entering into the Settlement Agreement. The Settlement Agreement did not resolve the Stockholder Litigation filed by Susan Paskowitz against the Company, Joseph F. Hughes, Winifred M. Hughes and certain former directors of the Company in the Supreme Court of the State of New York on October 11, 2018.

 

Concurrently with the Settlement Agreement, the parties entered into a share repurchase agreement (the “Repurchase Agreement”) which provided for the purchase by the Company and Christopher Hughes, the Company’s former President and Chief Executive Officer, of the shares of the Company’s Common Stock held by the Investor Parties (the “Repurchase”). The Settlement Agreement also contemplated that, if the Repurchase was completed, the Company would make a settlement payment to the Investor Parties at the closing of the Repurchase in an amount of approximately $1,500,000 (the “Settlement Payment”). However, the Repurchase and Settlement Payment were not completed by the deadline of December 30, 2019.

 

Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, (1) the Company agreed to adopt an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated By-Laws, dated April 9, 2015 (the “By-Laws Amendment”), providing that stockholders of the Company owning at least forty percent (40%) of the issued and outstanding Common Stock may request a special meeting of stockholders; (2) the Investor Parties agreed not to take any action to call or otherwise cause a special meeting of stockholders to occur prior to December 30, 2019 (unless the Company had failed to hold the 2018 Annual Meeting); (3) the Company agreed to amend and restate the Company’s Rights Agreement, dated August 29, 2018 (the “Amended Rights Agreement”), to confirm that a Distribution Date (as defined in the Amended Rights Agreement) shall not occur as a result of any request by any of the Investor Parties for a special meeting; (4) the Company agreed that prior to the earlier of (A) the completion of the Repurchase and the payment of the Settlement Payment and (B) January 1, 2020, the Board of Directors shall not consist of more than seven (7) directors.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the two nominees for director made by Zeff Capital, L.P. were elected as directors at the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting held on October 22, 2019. Please see the Company’s current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on October 21, 2019 for more information about the background of the election of directors at the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Settlement Agreement, inasmuch as the Repurchase was not completed and the Settlement Payment was not made by December 30, 2019, the members of the Board of Directors (other than the two directors who were nominated by Zeff Capital, L.P. and elected as directors at the 2018 Annual Meeting) resigned from the Board effective 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on December 30, 2019. Immediately thereafter, the two remaining directors appointed Robert Fitzgerald to the Board of Directors. Please see the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on December 31, 2019 for more information about the background and the appointment of Robert Fitzgerald.

The foregoing is not a complete description of the terms of the Settlement Agreement and the Share Repurchase Agreement. For a further description of the terms of the Settlement Agreement and the Share Repurchase Agreement, including copies of the Settlement Agreement and Share Repurchase Agreement, please see the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the SEC on September 3, 2019.

 

On October 21, 2019, the Company entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (the “MOU”) with Susan Paskowitz providing for the settlement of the Stockholder Litigation filed by Ms. Paskowitz on October 11, 2018. The MOU provides for the settlement of the claims by Ms. Paskowitz that (1) the former members of the Board named in the original complaint allegedly breached their fiduciary duties by failing to immediately adopt a rights plan that would have prevented the sale by Joseph F. Hughes and Winifred M. Hughes of an aggregate of 819,491 shares of the Company’s common stock to the Investor Parties; (2) the former members of the Board named in the amended complaint allegedly breached their fiduciary duties and failed to adopt proper corporate governance practices; and (3) the Investor Parties acted as “partners” and constituted a “group” in their purchase of shares from Joseph F. Hughes and Winifred M. Hughes and knowingly disseminated false or misleading public statements concerning their status as a group.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the MOU, the Company will (1) implement certain corporate governance reforms described in the MOU within 30 days of a final order and judgment entered by the court, and keep these corporate governance reforms in place for 5 years from the time of the final order and judgment; and (2) acknowledge that the plaintiff, Ms. Paskowitz, and her counsel provided a substantial benefit to the Company and its stockholders through the prosecution of the Stockholder Litigation and other related actions filed by Ms. Paskowitz described above.

 

On December 16, 2019, the Company entered into a Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement (the “Stipulation”) with Susan Paskowitz in the Stockholder Litigation. The Stipulation retains the terms and conditions of settlement of the Stockholder Litigation contained in the MOU described in the preceding paragraph, with the addition that the Company will pay to plaintiff’s counsel an award of attorneys’ fees and reimbursement of expenses in the amount of $260,000 (collectively, the “Stockholder Litigation Settlement”). The Stockholder Litigation Settlement is intended to fully, finally, and forever compromise, settle, release, resolve, and dismiss with prejudice the Stockholder Litigation and all claims asserted therein directly against all present and former defendants and derivatively against them on behalf of the Company. The Stockholder Litigation Settlement does not contain any admission of liability, wrongdoing or responsibility by any of the parties, and provides for mutual releases by all parties. Each stockholder of the Company is a member of the plaintiff class unless such stockholder opts out of the class. The Company expects that the full amount of the $260,000 settlement payment will be covered by insurance proceeds. The Stipulation remains subject to approval by the court. The Stipulation is independent of the Settlement Agreement and Share Repurchase Agreement that the Company had entered into with the Investor Parties.

 

On December 24, 2019, Ms. Paskowitz moved for preliminary approval of the Stipulation. On May 21, 2020, the Court entered an order preliminarily approving the Stipulation. The parties have agreed on a proposed scheduling order for final approval of the Stipulation and a proposed mailing notice of the stipulation to TSR stockholders, which are both currently pending Court approval. If approved, the Court will set a settlement hearing for final approval of the Stipulation. Although the Company believes that the Stipulation represents a fair and reasonable compromise of the matters in dispute in the Stockholder Litigation, there can be no assurance that the court will approve the Stipulation as proposed, or at all.

 

Inasmuch as the Company did not complete the Repurchase and make the Settlement Payment prior to the December 30, 2019 deadline, the members of the Board of Directors (other than the two directors who were elected as directors at the 2018 Annual Meeting) resigned from the Board effective at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on December 30, 2019. Immediately thereafter, the two remaining directors, Bradley M. Tirpak and H. Timothy Eriksen, appointed Robert Fitzgerald as a new director. Each of Messrs. Tirpak, Eriksen and Fitzgerald qualifies as an “independent director” under the NASDAQ Stock Market Rules. These three individuals were also appointed to the Audit Committee, Nominating Committee, Compensation Committee and Special Committee. The Board appointed Mr. Tirpak as Chairman of the Board to succeed Christopher Hughes. Mr. Hughes continued to serve as the Chief Executive Officer, President and Treasurer of the Company until January 17, 2020. Additionally, the Board appointed Mr. Eriksen as Lead Independent Director, Chairman of the Audit Committee and Chairman of the Nominating Committee. The Board also appointed Mr. Fitzgerald as the Chairman of the Compensation Committee and Chairman of the Special Committee.

8. Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

Effective June 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASU No. 2016-02, Leases, which sets out the principle for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases for both parties to a contract (i.e., lessees and lessors). The new standard requires lessees to classify leases as either finance or operating leases and record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term of greater than 12 months regardless of their classification. An accounting policy election may be made to account for leases with a term of 12 months or less similar to existing guidance for operating leases today. ASU No. 2016-02 supersedes the existing guidance on accounting for leases. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements, which allows for an optional transition method for the adoption of Topic 842. The two permitted transition methods are now the modified retrospective approach, which applies the new lease requirements at the beginning of the earliest period presented, and the optional transition method, which applies the new lease requirements through a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. ASU 2016-02 is effective for our fiscal year ending May 31, 2020 and the interim periods within that year. The Company adopted this standard in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 using the optional transition method. The Company also elected the practical expedients that allow us to carry forward the historical lease classification. The Company has established an inventory of existing leases and implemented a new process of evaluating the classification of each lease. The financial impact of the adoption of the new standard at June 1, 2019 increased total assets and total liabilities by approximately $690,000. The financial impact of the adoption primarily relates to the capitalization of right-of-use assets and recognition of lease liabilities related to operating leases.

 

9. Leases

 

The Company leases the space for its three offices. Under ASC 842, at contract inception we determine whether the contract is or contains a lease and whether the lease should be classified as an operating or finance lease. Operating leases are in right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities in our consolidated condensed balance sheets.

 

The Company’s leases for its three offices are classified as operating leases.

 

The lease agreements expire on December 31, 2020, February 28, 2021 and August 31, 2022, respectively, and do not include any renewal options.

 

In addition to the monthly base amounts in the lease agreements, the Company is required to pay real estate taxes and operating expenses during the lease terms.

 

For the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company’s operating lease expense for these leases was $115,422 and $96,958, respectively.

Less imputed interest     22,753  
Present value of operating lease payments   $ 326,647  

 

The following table sets forth the right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities as of August 31, 2020:

 

Assets      
Right-of-use assets   $ 322,371  
Liabilities        
Current operating lease liabilities   $ 170,915  
Long-term operating lease liabilities     155,732  
Total operating lease liabilities   $ 326,647  

 

The weighted average remaining lease term for the Company’s operating leases is 1.6 years.

 

10. Line of Credit

 

On November 27, 2019, TSR closed on a revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) pursuant to a Loan and Security Agreement with Access Capital, Inc. (the “Lender”) that initially provided up to $7,000,000 in funding to TSR and its direct and indirect subsidiaries, TSR Consulting Services, Inc., Logixtech Solutions, LLC and Eurologix, S.A.R.L., each of which, together with TSR, is a borrower under the Credit Facility. Each of the borrowers has provided a security interest to the Lender in all of their respective assets to secure amounts borrowed under the Credit Facility.

 

TSR expects to utilize the Credit Facility for working capital and general corporate purposes. TSR had also expected to utilize the Credit Facility to complete the Repurchase and make the Settlement Payment; however, TSR did not complete the Repurchase and make the Settlement Payment prior to the December 30, 2019 deadline established in the Credit Facility for such use.

 

Because TSR did not complete the Repurchase and make the Settlement Payment prior to the December 30, 2019 deadline, the maximum amount that may now be advanced under the Credit Facility at any time shall not exceed $2,000,000.

 

Advances under the Credit Facility accrue interest at a rate per annum equal to (x) the “base rate” or “prime rate” announced by Citibank, N.A. from time to time, which shall be increased or decreased, as the case may be, in an amount equal to each increase or decrease in such “base rate” or “prime rate,” plus (y) 1.75%. The prime rate as of August 31, 2020 was 3.25%, indicating an interest rate of 5.0% on the line of credit. The initial term of the Credit Facility is 5 years, which shall automatically renew for successive 5-year periods unless either TSR or the Lender gives written notice to the other of termination at least 60 days prior to the expiration date of the then-current term.

TSR is obliged to satisfy certain financial covenants and minimum borrowing requirements under the Credit Facility, and to pay certain fees, including prepayment fees, and provide certain financial information to the Lender.

 

As of August 31, 2020, the net borrowings outstanding against this line of credit facility were $63,981. The amount the Company has borrowed fluctuates and, at times in the prior fiscal year, it has utilized the maximum amount of $2,000,000 available under the facility to fund its payroll and other obligations.

 

11. Termination of Former CEO

 

The Company terminated Christopher Hughes, the former Chief Executive Officer of the Company (“Hughes”), effective February 29, 2020 for “Cause” as defined in Section 6(a) of his Amended and Restated Employment Agreement dated August 9, 2018 (the “Employment Agreement”) and on March 2, 2020, the Company received a letter from Mr. Hughes, providing notice of his intent to resign for “Good Reason” as defined in Section 7(c) of the Employment Agreement pursuant to which he claimed to be entitled to the “Enhanced Severance Amount” under the Employment Agreement. Hughes filed a complaint against the Company in the Supreme Court of the State of New York in March 2020 alleging two causes of action: (1) breach of his employment contract; and (2) breach of duty of good faith and fair dealing. Plaintiff Hughes alleges that he was terminated without cause or in the alternative, that he resigned for good reason and therefore, pursuant to the Amended and Restated Employment Agreement, dated August 9, 2018, between the Company and Plaintiff. Plaintiff Hughes seeks contractual severance pay in the amount of $1,000,000 and reasonable costs and attorney’s fees. The Company denies Plaintiff’s allegations in their entirety and has filed counterclaims against Plaintiff for (1) declaratory relief; (2) breach of confidence/non-compete agreement; (3) declaratory and injunctive relief – confidence/non-compete; (4) tortious interference with current and prospective contractual and economic relations; (5) breach of fiduciary duty; (6) misappropriation of trade secrets; (7) declaratory and injunctive relief – unfair competition; and (8) conversion. 

 

12. Legal Settlement with Investor

 

On April 1, 2020, the Company entered into a binding term sheet (“Term Sheet”) with Zeff Capital, L.P. (“Zeff”) pursuant to which it agreed to pay Zeff an amount of $900,000 over a period of three years in cash or cash and stock in settlement of expenses incurred by Zeff during its solicitations in 2018 and 2019 in connection with the annual meetings of the Company, the costs incurred in connection with the litigation initiated by and against the Company as well as negotiation, execution and enforcement of the Settlement and Release Agreement, dated as of August 30, 2019, by and between the Company, Zeff and certain other parties. (See Note 8.) In exchange for certain releases, the Term Sheet calls for a cash payment of $300,000 on June 30, 2021, a second cash payment of $300,000 on June 30, 2022 and a third payment of $300,00 also on June 30, 2022, which can be paid in cash or common stock at the Company’s option. There is no interest due on these payments. The agreement also has protections to defer such payment dates so that the debt covenants with the Company’s lender are not breached. On August 13, 2020, the Company, Zeff, Zeff Holding Company, LLC and Daniel Zeff entered into a settlement agreement to reflect these terms. Any installment payment which is deferred as permitted above will accrue interest at the prime rate plus 3.75%, and Zeff shall thereby have the option to convert such deferred amounts (plus accrued interest if any) into shares of the Company’s stock. The Company accrued $818,000, the estimated present value of these payments using an effective interest rate of 5%, in the quarter ended February 29, 2020, as the events relating to the expense occurred prior to such date.

 

13. COVID-19

 

The COVID-19 outbreak in the United States has caused business disruption through mandated and voluntary closing of various businesses. While the disruption is currently expected to be temporary, there is considerable uncertainty around the duration of the closings. Therefore, the Company expects this matter to negatively impact its operating results in future periods. However, the full financial impact and duration cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.

(Unaudited)

 

14. Payroll Protection Program Loan

 

On April 15, 2020, the Company received loan proceeds of $6,659,220 under the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP Loan”). The Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) was established under the recent congressionally-approved Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) and is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”). The PPP Loan to the Company is being made through JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., a national banking association (the “Lender”).

 

The original term of the PPP Loan was two years. The term has been extended to five years by the SBA. The annual interest rate on the PPP Loan is 0.98%. Payments of principal and interest on the loan will be deferred for the first six months of the term of the loan. The promissory note evidencing the PPP Loan contains customary events of default relating to, among other things, payment defaults, breach of representations and warranties, or provisions of the promissory note. The occurrence of an event of default may trigger the immediate repayment of all amounts outstanding, collection of all amounts owing from the Company, and/or filing suit and obtaining a judgment against the Company.

 

Under the terms of the CARES Act, PPP Loan recipients may apply for and be granted forgiveness for all or a portion of loans granted under the PPP. Such forgiveness will be determined, subject to limitations, based on the use of loan proceeds for payroll costs and mortgage interest, rent or utility costs and the maintenance of employee and compensation levels. While the Company believes that it has acted in compliance with the program and plans to seek forgiveness of the PPP Loan, no assurance can be provided that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the PPP Loan in whole or in part.

 

15. Subsequent Event- Geneva Consulting Group Acquisition

 

On September 1, 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of all of the outstanding stock of Geneva Consulting Group, Inc., a New York corporation (“Geneva”) and provider of temporary and permanent information technology personnel based in Port Washington, New York. The stock of Geneva was purchased from the three shareholders of Geneva (the “Sellers”), none of which had, or will have following the acquisition, a material relationship with the Company or its affiliates.

 

The purchase price for the shares of Geneva is comprised of the following: (i) $1.45 million in cash paid to Sellers at the closing of the acquisition, (ii) an amount, up to $0.75 million, that is equal to the amount of Geneva’s loan under the PPP that is forgiven by the SBA, (iii) an amount, up to $0.30 million which may be paid as an earnout payment in part in February 2021 and in part in August 2021 (the “Earnout Payments”) and (iv) bonus payments payable in $10,000 increments. Any such Earnout Payments and bonus payments will be determined based upon the achievement of certain criteria relating to the number the Company’s contractors working full-time at Company clients on such dates.

 

The Company has incurred approximately $300,000 in legal fees, business broker fees, valuation services, accounting fees and other expenses to complete the Geneva acquisition, of which $122,000 of these expenses were recorded in the quarter ended August 31, 2020.

Revenue

 

Revenue consists primarily of revenue from computer programming consulting services. Revenue for the quarter ended August 31, 2020 decreased approximately $433,000 or 2.9% from fiscal 2019. Revenue for the current quarter decreased due to lower overall average number of consultants on billing with customers which decreased from 375 for the quarter ended August 31, 2019 to 336 for the quarter ended August 31, 2020, while the average number of computer programming consultants also decreased from 329 for the quarter ended August 31, 2019 to 272 in the quarter ended August 31, 2020. The 336 consultants on billing for the current period include an equivalent 64 administrative (non-IT) workers that the Company placed at the customers’ requests as compared with the prior year which included an equivalent 46 administrative (non-IT) workers.

 

We have experienced and continue to experience terminated assignments and a decrease in demand for new assignments due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to the lower average number of consultants and negatively impacted the Company’s revenues. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has created operational challenges. The start of certain new assignments has been and continue to be delayed due to delays in obtaining necessary clearances, as many of the agencies required to be contacted in obtaining the information needed for background checks have been fully or partially closed. As of August 31, 2020, the Company had used 100% of the PPP loan funds to fund its payroll and other allowable expenses. The use of these funds allowed the Company to avoid certain salary reductions, furloughs and layoffs of employees during the covered period.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales for the quarter ended August 31, 2020 decreased approximately $488,000 or 3.9% to $12,183,000 from $12,671,000 in the prior year period. The decrease in cost of sales resulted primarily from a decrease in consultants placed with customers and from a decrease in the average rates paid to consultants on billing. Cost of sales as a percentage of revenue decreased from 84.8% in the quarter ended August 31, 2019 to 83.9% in the quarter ended August 31, 2020. The percentage decrease in cost of sales for the current quarter as compared to the prior year quarter (3.9% decrease) was higher than the percentage decrease in revenue for the current quarter as compared to the prior year quarter (2.9% decrease), causing an increase in gross margins.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses consist primarily of expenses relating to account executives, technical recruiters, facilities costs, management and corporate overhead. These expenses decreased approximately $919,000 or 28.8% from $3,190,000 in the quarter ended August 31, 2019 to $2,271,000 in the quarter ended August 31, 2020. The decrease in these expenses primarily resulted from a decrease of $726,000 in amounts paid for legal services from the prior year related to shareholder litigation and increased costs surrounding our annual meeting, as well as a reduction of approximately $64,000 in compensation expenses for the former CEO who was terminated on February 29, 2020 (net of additional amounts paid to the new CEO during the period). Selling, general and administrative expenses, as a percentage of revenue, decreased from 21.3% in the quarter ended August 31, 2019 to 15.7% in the quarter ended August 31, 2020.

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

Other income (expense) for the quarter ended August 31, 2020 resulted primarily from interest expense of approximately $52,000 and a mark to market loss of approximately $10,000 on the Company’s marketable equity securities. Other income for the quarter ended August 31, 2019 resulted primarily from interest and dividend income of $5,000 and a mark to market gain of approximately $3,000 on the Company’s marketable equity securities.

 

Income Tax Benefit

 

The income tax benefit included in the Company’s results of operations for the quarters ended August 31, 2020 and 2019 reflects the Company’s estimated effective tax rate for the years ending May 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. These rates resulted in a benefit of 250.0% for the quarter ended August 31, 2020 and a benefit of 27.3% for the quarter ended August 31, 2019. The effective rate for the current is not meaningful due to the small amount of the pre-tax loss.

Net Loss Attributable to TSR, Inc.

 

Net loss attributable to TSR, Inc. was approximately $3,000 in the quarter ended August 31, 2020 compared to a loss of $663,000 in the quarter ended August 31, 2019. The decrease in net loss was primarily attributable to a decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses due to the decreased legal fees described above.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company’s cash was sufficient to enable it to meet its liquidity requirements during the quarter ended August 31, 2020. The Company expects that its cash and cash equivalents and the Company’s line of credit pursuant to a Loan and Security Agreement with Access Capital, Inc. will be sufficient to provide the Company with adequate resources to meet its liquidity requirements for the 12 month period following the issuance of these financial statements. Utilizing its accounts receivable as collateral, the Company has secured the line of credit to increase its liquidity as necessary. As of August 31, 2020, the net borrowings outstanding against this line of credit facility were approximately $64,000. The amount the Company has borrowed fluctuates and, at times, it has utilized the maximum amount of $2,000,000 available under this facility in the prior fiscal year to fund its payroll and other obligations. Additionally, in April 2020, the Company secured a SBA Paycheck Protection Program Loan (“PPP Loan”) in the amount of $6,659,000. At the time of application, the Company determined that the loan was necessary in order to secure the Company’s ability to meet its obligations in the face of potential disruptions in it business operations and the potential inability of its customers to pay their accounts when due. As of August 31, 2020, the Company had used 100% of the PPP loan funds to fund its payroll and for other allowable expenses under the PPP loan. The use of these funds allowed the Company to avoid certain salary reductions, furloughs and layoffs of employees during the period. While there is no guarantee that the Company will receive forgiveness for any outstanding amounts under the PPP Loan, it believes that it has acted in compliance with the terms of the program and plans to seek forgiveness of the PPP Loan.

 

At August 31, 2020, the Company had working capital (total current assets in excess of total current liabilities) of approximately $11,972,000 including cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities of $10,843,000 as compared to working capital of $12,239,000 including cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities of $9,780,000 at May 31, 2020.

 

Net cash flow of approximately $1,517,000 was provided by operations during the quarter ended August 31, 2020 as compared to $1,129,000 of net cash flow used in operations in the prior year period. The cash provided operations for the three months ended August 31, 2020 primarily resulted from an increase in accounts payable and other payables and accrued expenses of $1,034,000 and a decrease in accounts receivable of $459,000. The cash used in operations for the three months ended August 31, 2019 primarily resulted from the consolidated net loss of $659,000, an increase in deferred taxes of $269,000, primarily from net operating loss carryforwards, and a decrease in accounts payable and other payables and accrued expenses of $353,000.

 

Net cash used in investing activities of approximately $8,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2020 primarily resulted from purchases of fixed assets. Net cash provided by investing activities of $247,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2019 primarily resulted from the proceeds of a matured certificate of deposit not being reinvested.

 

Net cash used in financing activities of approximately $437,000 during the quarter ended August 31, 2020 resulted from net payments on the Company’s line of credit with Access Capital. There was no net cash provided by or used in financing activities during the quarter ended August 31, 2019.

 

The Company’s capital resource commitments at August 31, 2020 consisted of lease obligations on its branch and corporate facilities and an accrued legal settlement payable. The net present value of its future lease and settlement payments were approximately $327,000 and $838,000, respectively, as of August 31, 2020. The Company intends to finance these commitments primarily from the Company’s available cash and line of credit.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to investors.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

Effective June 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASU No. 2016-02, Leases, which sets out the principle for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases for both parties to a contract (i.e., lessees and lessors). The new standard requires lessees to classify leases as either finance or operating leases and record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term of greater than 12 months regardless of their classification. An accounting policy election may be made to account for leases with a term of 12 months or less similar to existing guidance for operating leases today. ASU No. 2016-02 supersedes the existing guidance on accounting for leases. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements, which allows for an optional transition method for the adoption of Topic 842. The two permitted transition methods are now the modified retrospective approach, which applies the new lease requirements at the beginning of the earliest period presented, and the optional transition method, which applies the new lease requirements through a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. ASU 2016-02 is effective for our fiscal year ending May 31, 2020 and the interim periods within that year. The Company adopted this standard in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 using the optional transition method. The Company also elected the practical expedients that allow us to carry forward the historical lease classification. The Company has established an inventory of existing leases and implemented a new process of evaluating the classification of each lease. The financial impact of the adoption of the new standard at June 1, 2019 increased total assets and total liabilities by approximately $690,000. The financial impact of the adoption primarily relates to the capitalization of right-of-use assets and recognition of lease liabilities related to operating leases.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The Securities and Exchange Commission defines “critical accounting policies” as those that require the application of management’s most difficult subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain and may change in subsequent periods.

 

The Company’s significant accounting policies are described in Note 1 to the Company’s consolidated financial statements, contained in its May 31, 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company believes that those accounting policies require the application of management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments. There have been no changes in the Company’s significant accounting policies as of August 31, 2020.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures. The Company conducted an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the principal executive officer and principal accounting officer, of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act of 1934). Based on this evaluation, the principal executive officer and principal accounting officer concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective.

 

Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. There was no change in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the Company’s most recently reported completed fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

Part II. Other Information

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

Legal Settlement with Investor

 

During the quarter ending February 29, 2020, the Company negotiated a settlement with the Company’s largest stockholder to reimburse it for legal expenses of $900,000 (net present value of $818,000), by entering into a binding term sheet on April 1, 2020. The parties entered into a final agreement reflecting these terms on August 13, 2020. (See Note 12 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements elsewhere in this report.)

 

Christopher Hughes v. TSR, Inc., Docket No. 651753-2020 (NY Supr. Ct, New York County)

 

Christopher Hughes, the former Chief Executive Officer of the Company (“Plaintiff”), filed a complaint against the Company in the Supreme Court of the State of New York in March 2020 alleging two causes of action: (1) breach of his employment contract; and (2) breach of duty of good faith and fair dealing. Plaintiff alleges that he was terminated without cause or in the alternative that he resigned for reason and therefore, pursuant to the Amended and Restated Employment Agreement, dated August 9, 2018, between the Company and Plaintiff, Plaintiff seeks contractual severance pay in the amount of $1,000,000 and reasonable costs and attorney’s fees. The Company denies Plaintiff’s allegations in their entirety and has filed counterclaims against Plaintiff for (1) declaratory relief; (2) breach of confidence/non-compete agreement; (3) declaratory and injunctive relief – confidence/non-compete; (4) tortious interference with current and prospective contractual and economic relations; (5) breach of fiduciary duty; (6) misappropriation of trade secrets; (7) declaratory and injunctive relief – unfair competition; and (8) conversion.

 

At this time, it is not possible to predict the outcome of this litigation matter or its effect on the Company and the Company’s consolidated financial position.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

We operate in a rapidly changing environment that involves a number of risks that could materially affect our business, financial condition or future results, some of which are beyond our control. In addition to the other information set forth in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the risk factors included below, you should carefully consider the factors in Part I, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2020, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

The Company is currently subject to ongoing litigation with its former CEO which, like other future lawsuits or investigations, could divert our resources or result in substantial liabilities.

 

The Company is currently subject to a litigation involving the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer, as discussed in the “Legal Proceedings” section. In connection with this litigation, the Company may enter into a settlement of claims for significant monetary damages. The Company may also be subject to a judgement for significant monetary damages. Defending against the current litigation may be time-consuming, expensive and cause diversion of management’s attention.

 

We may be additionally in the future subject to legal or administrative proceedings and litigation which may be costly to defend and could materially harm our business, financial conditions and operations. With respect to any litigation, the Company’s insurance may not reimburse it or may not be sufficient to reimburse it for the self-insured retention that the Company is required to satisfy before any insurance applies to a claim, unreimbursed legal fees or an adverse result in any litigation may adversely impact the Company’s business, operating results or financial condition.

TSR, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

 

Our business, financial condition and results of operations have been negatively impacted by global health epidemics, including the recent COVID-19 outbreak.

 

Outbreaks of epidemic, pandemic, or contagious diseases such as COVID-19 have and may continue to have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition, and results of operations. The spread of COVID-19 across the world has resulted in the World Health Organization declaring the outbreak of COVID-19 as a global pandemic. As the extent and duration of the COVID-19 outbreak is still unknown, international stock markets have experienced volatility reflecting the uncertainty associated with the slow-down in the global economy and the resulting governmental responses to the pandemic. If COVID-19 continues to progress in ways that disrupt our customers’ demand for computer programing services or staffing needs or otherwise continues to disrupt our operations, such disruptions may continue to negatively affect, and may in the future materially affect, our operating results. The majority of our workforce and customer base is located in New Jersey and New York and typically works on-site at client locations. However, on March 20, 2020 New York Governor Cuomo signed the New York State on PAUSE executive order, which includes a new directive that all non-essential businesses statewide close in-office personnel functions effective March 22 to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and we determined that the Company is a non-essential business. In response to these public health directives and orders, we have implemented and maintained work-from-home policies for certain employees. The effects of continued executive orders, stay at home orders and our work-from-home policies may negatively impact productivity, disrupt our business and impact our ability to service our clients and our clients need for our services, the magnitude of which will depend, in part, on the length and severity of the restrictions and other limitations on our ability to conduct our business in the ordinary course. Similar, and perhaps more severe, disruptions in our operations could negatively impact, and may materially negatively impact, our business, operating results and financial condition. Quarantines, shelter-in-place and similar government orders, or the perception that such orders, shutdowns or other restrictions on the conduct of business operations could resume or continue to occur, related to COVID-19 or other infectious diseases could impact us and the business operations of our vendors and customers. Additionally, if the spread of COVID-19 limits our ability to make workers available either because they are ill or due to work-from-home orders, this likely would negatively affect, and may materially negatively affect, our operating results, cash flow and business.

 

The full financial impact of the pandemic cannot be reasonably estimated at this time. The extent to which COVID-19 impacts our results will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and the actions taken globally to contain the COVID-19 pandemic or treat its impact, among others. Existing insurance coverage may not provide protection for all costs that may arise from all such possible events. We continue to assess our business operations and system supports and the impact COVID-19 may have on our results and financial condition, but there can be no assurance that this analysis will enable us to avoid part or all of any impact from the spread of COVID-19 or its consequences, including downturns in business sentiment generally or in our sector in particular. 

 

We recently completed the acquisition of Geneva Consulting Group, Inc. (“Geneva”) and may conduct additional acquisitions in the future. Due to the risks and uncertainties related to the acquisition of new businesses, any such acquisitions do not guarantee that we will be able to attain or maintain profitability.

 

On September 1, 2020, we completed the acquisition of all of the outstanding stock of Geneva, a provider of temporary and permanent information technology personnel based in Port Washington, New York, which we believe will help diversify our business and expand the scope of our services. As part of a potential growth strategy, we may attempt to acquire or merge with certain businesses. Whether we realize the potential benefits from any such transactions, including the acquisition of Geneva, will depend in part upon the integration of the acquired businesses, the performance of the acquired assets and services, and the personnel hired in connection therewith. Accordingly, our results of operations could be adversely impacted by transaction-related costs, amortization of intangible assets, and charges for impairment of long-term assets. While we believe that we have established appropriate and adequate procedures and processes to mitigate these risks, there can be no assurance that any potential transaction will be successful.
