NOTE 1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Nature of Operations

 

Reliability, Inc. is a leading provider of employer of record and temporary media and information technology (“IT”) staffing services that operates, along with its wholly owned subsidiary, The Maslow Media Group, Inc (“MMG”), (collectively, “Reliability” or the “Company”), primarily within the United States of America in four industry segments: Employer of Record (“EOR”), Recruiting and Staffing, Direct Placements, and Video and Multimedia Production which provides script to screen media talent. Our Staffing segment provides skilled field talent on a nationwide basis for Media, IT and finance and accounting client partner projects. Video Production involves assembling and providing crews for special projects that can last anywhere from a week to 6 months.

 

Reliability was incorporated under the laws of the State of Texas in 1953, but the then principal business of the Company started in 1971 was closed down in 2007. The Company completed a reverse merger with MMG (the “Merger”) on October 29, 2019.

 

Company Background

 

Linda Maslow founded Maslow Group initially in 1988 and incorporated the firm under the name the Maslow Media Group Inc., in March 1992.

 

On November 9, 2016, Linda Maslow sold the business to Vivos Holdings, LLC (“Vivos Holdings”) owned by Dr. Naveen Doki (“Dr. Doki”) and Silvija Valleru (“Ms. Valleru”).

 

In 2018, Vivos Holdings and several other Vivos companies, (“Vivos Group”) engaged an investment banker who approached management of Reliability to discuss a potential reverse merger transaction. The other investors who collaborated on a share swap of MMG for other Vivos companies were Shirisha Janumpally (“Mrs. Janumpally”), wife of Dr. Doki, and Kalyan Pathuri (“Mr. Pathuri”), husband of Silvija Valleru.

 

These individuals, included but were not limited to Dr. Doki, Mrs. Janumpally, Mr. Pathuri, and Mrs. Valleru, Igly Trust, and Judos Trust also have common ownership combinations in a number of other entities [Vivos Holdings, LLC, Vivos Real Estate Holdings, LLC (“VREH”), Vivos Holdings, Inc., Vivos Group, Vivos Acquisitions, LLC, and Federal Systems, LLC], (collectively referred to herein as “Vivos Group”).

 

The reverse merger was consummated on October 29, 2019. As a result of the Merger, the Vivos Group (Vivos Holdings LLC, officially) acquired approximately 84% of the issued and outstanding shares of Reliability which were distributed by Vivos Holdings, LLC.

 

On October 29, 2019, MMG became a wholly owned subsidiary of Reliability by merging R-M Merger Sub, Inc., a Virginia corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Reliability, with and into Maslow, with MMG being the surviving corporation.

 

The Company ceased to be a “shell” company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (the “Exchange Act”) by virtue of its ownership of MMG following the Merger. The acquisition of MMG also resulted in a “change in control” of Reliability.

Upon purchasing MMG and thereafter, Vivos Holdings, LLC and their affiliates (collectively the “Vivos Group”) began borrowing monies from MMG starting with $1,400 in 2016 and by the end of 2019 the balance had reached $3,418 which included a $3,000 guarantee from Dr. Naveen Doki. (See Note 8 for more details).

NOTE 6. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

There are a number of debts and confessions of judgement (“COJ”) related to the Vivos Group that included Maslow as a co-signer or guarantor at some stage in the Vivos Group debt process from November 2016 through October 29, 2019, when Vivos Holdings LLC owned Maslow. All known debts disclosed to Maslow management and Reliability prior to the Merger were addressed by various safeguards such as the Liquidation Agreement, and the Naveen Doki personal guarantee described in Item 1. However, there were certain non-disclosures by Vivos Holdings, LLC that are included below which are completely covered in Note 8 and Item 3 Legal Proceedings.

 

In December 2019, the Company’s executive management learned that prior to the Merger, in January 2018, one of the Company’s related parties, on behalf of Maslow, executed a guarantee of obligations of Vivos Real Estate Holdings, LLC (“VREH”), under a mortgage loan for the purchase of the property at 22 Baltimore Rd., Rockville, Maryland. Maslow leased this space on market terms. This obligation had not been included in Maslow’s consolidated financial statements and was not separately disclosed prior to the Merger.

 

On March 3, 2022, Maslow received a notice of default, acceleration, and demand for payment-in-full from FVCBank due to incurable events of default on behalf of Borrower, VREH. Per the default notice, “As of March 2, 2022, the total indebtedness due and owing under the Loan (the ‘‘Debt’’) is $1,743 consisting of an unpaid principal balance in the amount of $1,703 accrued and unpaid interest in the amount of $7, deferred payments in the amount of $20 and late fees in the amount of $12 plus prepayment penalties and attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses,” less setoff fees of $16. Maslow may have grounds to contest it being a guarantor on the loan.

 

On July 12, 2022, MMG was advised that a foreclosure sale of the 22 Baltimore Road property was scheduled to take place on August 4, 2022, at Montgomery County Circuit Court in Rockville, Maryland. It was subsequently cancelled after VREH filed for bankruptcy on August 2, 2022.

 

On August 2, 2022, VREH filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the District Court of Maryland.

 

Maslow filed a Motion to Vacate Confessed Judgment entered against it by FVC Bank in the Circuit Court for Fairfax County.

 

On November 17, 2022, FVC Bank and VREH entered into a Stipulation and Consent Order through the bankruptcy court that provides VREH to pay back taxes and interest, hire a new property manager and make repairs to the building, and work on a plan to refinance or sell the building. This automatic stay to the bankruptcy proceeding provides VREH until April 15th, 2023, to either refinance or sell the building to prevent FVC Bank from foreclosing on the property and commencing action to sell the property.

(amounts in thousands, except per share data)

 

In April 2023, VREH and FVC Bank negotiated through the bankruptcy court a revised Stipulation and Consent Order. VREH has so far met the requirements of the new order which included paying down the liability owed to FVC Bank by $350,000. VREH is working towards obtaining a commitment letter from a lender so that one of their affiliated entities can purchase the building by June 1st, 2023. The Company continues to dispute its placement as a guarantor on the mortgage associated with FVC Bank and is working to mitigate any liability associated with VREH’s default on the mortgage.

 

In September 2022, MMG learned that Vivos IT, LLC filed a lawsuit against Second Wind Consultants (“SWC”) in May 2019 included MMG as a plaintiff. The lawsuit included claims of fraud in inducement and unjust enrichment against SWC. The five parties suing SWC, included Vivos LLC, The Maslow Media Group, Suresh Venkat Doki, Naveen Doki and Silvija Valleru. The lawsuit related to a debt restructuring services agreement secured by Suresh Doki, Naveen Doki and Silvija Valleru to assist the following then owned Vivos entities: Maslow Media Group, Inc., Health Care Resources Network, Inc., Mettler & Michael, Inc., 360 IT Professionals, Inc. and US IT Solutions, Inc. SWC countersued all plaintiffs on September 30th, 2019, seeking to collect the balance of $402,500 not paid by the Vivos Group. These suits were not disclosed to Maslow management or to Reliability before the Merger closed on October 29, 2019. MMG is weighing its legal options at this time. The Company filed a motion in January 2023 to include all original parties to the SWC Agreement. The court has not yet issued its ruling on the motion filed.

 

At the present time, the Company is uncertain as to whether any of the above items will have a material impact on their consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE 7. EQUITY

 

The Company’s authorized capital stock consists of 300,000,000 shares of common stock, with no par value. All authorized shares of Company Common Stock are issued and outstanding.

 

NOTE 8. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

Stock Purchase Agreement

 

On November 9, 2016, Vivos Holdings, LLC, the former owner of MMG, acquired 100% of MMG through a stock acquisition exchange for a purchase price of $1,750, of which: (i) $1,400 was paid at settlement with proceeds from MMG and (ii) a promissory note to pay the remaining $350 (“Vivos/MMG Purchase Agreement”). The promissory note was to be paid in twenty-four equal installments, including interest at 4.5%, in the amount of approximately $15, commencing six months after closing, with the last payment on March 1, 2019. These payments were paid by MMG on behalf of the Vivos Debtors. The Vivos Debtors subsequently entered into a promissory note receivable with MMG, described below, for the full stock purchase price. No payment has ever been made against this note and between 2018 to present, there has been $2,503 in additional borrowings.

 

As of March 31, 2023, and December 31, 2022, the receivable totaled $5,327 and $5,251, respectively. This is not inclusive of the additional amounts awarded in the arbitration.

 

Notes Receivable

 

The Company has notes receivable from Vivos Holdings, LLC and VREH, a member of Vivos Group, both related party affiliates due to their ownership percentage in the Company. Per Code of Virginia the legal rate of interest shall be implied when there is an obligation to pay interest and no express contract to pay interest at a specified rate. However, it was determined in 2021 that the two notes had clauses capping the default interest at 4.5% and 5.5% respectively. The rate adjustment for the allowed periods was made using the eligible agreement rates.

The note was secured by 30,000,000 shares of Company Common Stock, was due and payable upon a default by Vivos. In addition, both Naveen Doki and Silvija Valleru personally guaranteed the repayment of the note by the Vivos Group. Naveen Doki and Silvija Valleru were beneficial owners of Vivos and are also 5% or greater beneficial owners of Company Common Stock, which is qualified by the Merger Arbitration complaint. As of March 31, 2023, the total outstanding balance was $869, which includes 2023 interest of $12.

 

Debt Settlement Agreements

This discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our unaudited consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these unaudited consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses based on historical experience and various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

Management’s Discussion included in the Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022, includes discussion of various factors and items related to the Company’s results of operations and liquidity. There have been no other significant changes in most of the factors discussed in the Form 10-K and many of the items discussed in the Form 10-K are relevant to 2023 operations; thus, the reader of this report should read Management’s Discussion included in Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Revenues

 

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2023, were $5,199 which was $584 or 10.1% less than for the same period in 2022 with revenue at $5,783. The EOR segment had the greatest negative impact, falling $500 to $2,273 from $4,773 in year over year quarterly revenue. One reason for the dip was that a year ago one client had a creative project that employed a significant number of freelance workers we provided. It was a project carried over from 2021 that ended in January 2022. Another reason was one client converted 7 of our employees from our payroll to theirs.

 

Recruiting and Staffing revenues dipped by $158 from $923 in the period ending March 31, 2022, to $765 comparatively in 2023, while Direct Hire revenues were off the first quarter pace set in 2022 by $9 landing on $30 versus $39 a year ago.

 

Video Production grew, however, delivering $131 in the first quarter 2023 versus $48 in the first quarter ending March 31, 2022, which was a $83 or 173% increase. It was the highest quarterly revenue total for Video Production since the quarter ending December 31, 2021, which this business segment then garnered $263 in revenue.

 

Cost of Revenue / Gross Profit

 

Gross profit for the three-month period ending March 31, 2023, was $711 representing 13.7% of revenues, which was $19 lower than the $730 in gross profit MMG earned in 2022’s first quarter when the gross margin was at 12.6%.

 

The catalyst for the 110-basis point quarter over quarter jump was EOR, as first quarter margins increased from 10.4% in 2022 to 11.9% in 2023. Otherwise, comparatively, first quarter 2023 to 2022: Direct Hire margins were at 77.1% as opposed to 89.6%, as recruiting resources were required for a longer term than a year ago; IT Staffing was 22.6% vs. 19.4% in 2022; Media Staffing at 19.7% vs. 22.9%; and Video Production at 18.7% vs. a negative margin due to a cost overrun a year ago.

 

EOR margins tend to be lower at the beginning of the year as variable costs such as federal and state unemployment taxes reset at the beginning of the year. EOR margins tend to increase throughout the year as these variable costs are exhausted throughout the year. In 2022 and early 2023 several EOR contracts were extended resulting in a slight improvement in margins and our customer mix continues to be more weighted to clients that have more favorable pricing terms than those that previously dominated sales.

 

General and Administrative (“G&A”)

 

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2023, were $933 compared to $1,305 in the same period in 2022, representing a $372 or 29% decrease. $309 of the $378 was a result in the reduction in arbitration related costs. Commercial legal dropped $21 as well. Employee salaries and benefits were comparatively down $135 as 2022 bonus accrual was $104 higher than approved for payment, loaded salaries (including benefits and taxes) were down $18 and commissions down $13 compared to a year ago. A savings of $17 was derived from our business insurance package as a new less costly D&O insurance policy with greater benefits was put into place. Conversely contract service cost increased by $50, Staff events by $26, staff development by $13 and recruiting software by $12.

 

17
 

 

We expect increases in payroll as certain roles have been contracted and sales and sales support had headcount changes in mid-March.

 

Interest Expense

 

The Company incurred $44 in interest charges for financing (factoring) its invoices in the first quarter 2023 compared with $29 in the same period a year ago, as the prime interest rate soared from 3.5% at the end of the first quarter 2022 to 8% by end of the first quarter 2023. Our interest rate is 2 points greater than prime, meaning comparatively our costs went from approximately 5.5% to 10%.

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

Other Income in the first quarter was under $1 compared with $3 in the first quarter 2022.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

Our working capital requirements are driven predominantly by EOR field talent payments, G&A salaries, public company costs, interest associated with factoring, and client accounts receivable receipts. Since receipts from client payments are on average 70 days behind payments to field talent, working capital requirements can be periodically challenged. We have a Factoring Facility with Gulf, whereas Gulf advances 93% of our eligible receivables at an advance rate of 15 basis points, an interest rate of prime plus 2%., and our prime floor rate at 4%. Our Days Outstanding (DSO) for the trailing 12 months ending March 31, 2023, is at 66 comparable to 61 DSO for the trailing twelve months ending March 31, 2022.

 

This is because 53% of our revenue is from clients that over the past 3 years began demanding 90-day terms. Delays in receipt of purchase orders also has had an adverse impact on DSO. Alternatively, we have had an increase over the past 12 months in client advances which now average approximately $260 a month vs. $60 prior in 2022.

 

When looking at A/R aging in relation to payments to due date, as of March 31, 2023, 74.9% of our $3,224 in total trade A/R was current and 91.4% was < 31 days aged, compared to 68.5% and 88.2% a year ago, respectively. Our > 60 days aged invoices represent $48 or 1.5% of our total A/R.

 

Our Federal and state tax liability is $5 compared to $688 a year ago, and $6 as of December 31, 2022.

 

Our primary sources of liquidity are cash generated from operations via accounts receivable and borrowings under our Factoring Facility with Gulf enabling access to the 7% unfactored portion. Because certain large clients have changed their payment practices announcing 60- and 90-day terms amounting to a unilateral extension to contractual terms by 30-60 days, we can be adversely impacted since Gulf does not provide credit if an account obligor pays more than 120 days after the invoice date.

 

Our primary uses of cash are for payments to field talent, corporate and staff employees, related payroll liabilities, operating expenses, public company costs, including but not limited to, general and professional liability and directors and officer’s liability insurance premiums, legal fees, filing fees, auditor and accounting fees, stock transfer services, and board compensation; followed by cash factoring and other borrowing interest; cash taxes; and debt payments.

 

Since we are an EOR with the majority of contracted talent paid as W-2 employees who are paid known amounts, but on inconsistent schedules; our cash inflows do not typically align with these required payments, resulting in temporary cash challenges, which is why we employ factoring.

Vivos Debtors as of March 31, 2023, had notes receivable totaling $5,327 including default on a $3,000 promissory note and on a $750 tax obligation in December 2019.

 

It was also anticipated that following the Merger, the Company would both access the capital markets by selling additional shares of Company Common Stock and use shares of Company Common Stock as currency to acquire other business revenues. However, all 300 million authorized shares of Company Common Stock were issued in connection with the Merger. No shares are expected to become available to the Company until the legal dispute with the Vivos Debtors and Vivos Group is resolved. At that point, the Company can decide whether to amend the Company’s Certificate of Formation to increase the number of authorized shares of Company Common Stock or approve a reverse-split of the outstanding shares of Company Common Stock to provide additional shares for these purposes. No assurance can be given as to when this might take place.

 

Over the past three years MMG received eligible forgiven PPP Loan totaling $5,216, ERC cash of $3,501 out of eligible $4,676, which has bolstered working capital enabling us to invest in software, build A/R reserves, and hire needed resources for operations. On April 29, 2023, we received a check from the IRS for $1,203 to pay for our second quarter 2021’s eligible ERC 941X submission.

 

Overall, these programs bolstered our working capital and enabled us to bring back employees and continue to serve our clients.

 

As of March 31, 2023, our working capital was $8,457, compared to $8,815 at the end of March 2022. This includes the $1,174 in ERC principal and additional interest received on April 28, 2023. Our adjusted working capital at the end of March 2023, excluding the notes receivable related to the Vivos Debtors totals $3,130 compared to 3,776 a year earlier.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 4. Risk Controls and Procedures

 

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. The Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer evaluated the effectiveness of the disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, the President and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report were effective such that the information required to be disclosed in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure. A controls system cannot provide absolute assurance, however, that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting. There were no changes in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting, known to the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

On or about February 25, 2020, the Company, as plaintiff, filed a complaint with the Circuit Court of Montgomery County, Maryland against Vivos Holdings, LLC, Vivos Real Estate Holdings, LLC and Dr. Doki, to enforce Maslow’s rights under certain promissory notes and a personal guarantee made by the defendants.

 

On August 9, 2021, Reliability filed an additional claim in the Debt Collection Suit and Vivos Default Counterclaim in the Circuit Court of Montgomery County, Maryland against Doki, Valleru, Pathuri, Janumpally, Igly, and Judos, that the Respondents breached the Merger Agreement in a number of significant respects and committed fraud in connection with the Merger.

 

On September 7, 2021, the Company entered in Arbitration and Tolling Agreements with alleged shareholder Naveen Doki, M.D., and his affiliates and all other persons who were parties to the pending litigation previously reported in the Texas, New York and Maryland courts and before the American Arbitration Association. The Agreements call for the stay or dismissal of the pending litigation, with the parties agreeing to resolve their disputes before a single arbitrator in Maryland. The parties also agreed to maintain the status quo in corporate governance and related matters pending a final non-appealable judgment confirming any award in arbitration. The parties also signed a Tolling Agreement to toll the statute of limitations following the dismissal of a pending litigation.

 

On August 2, 2022, VREH filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection in the District Court of Maryland. This action prevented the Arbitrator from providing any ruling relating to Note II in the arbitration case at the time of his award.

 

On August 24, 2022, the Company filed a motion to stay the VREH Bankruptcy filing to allow the Arbitrator to rule on the claims against VREH. The motion to lift the stay was granted by the court on September 16, 2022, after the initial award by the Arbitrator.

 

On August 31, 2022, the Arbitrator issued an award (the “Award”) with the Company with MMG prevailing on their claims. The Company and MMG were awarded the following:

 

  an award in favor of MMG against Vivos under Note I (as defined in the Award) in the amount of $3,458, with interest thereon from June 30, 2022, at the rate of 4.5% per year;
  no award as to Note II (as defined in the Award) until and at such time as the automatic stay imposed by the United States Bankruptcy Court as a result of the filing of a petition in bankruptcy by VREH is lifted or the bankruptcy proceeding is terminated;
  an award in favor of MMG against Vivos under Note III (as defined in the Award) in the amount of $800, with interest thereon from June 30, 2022, at the rate of 2.5% per year, plus collection costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred in the effort to collect Note III;
  an award in favor of MMG against Naveen under the Personal Guaranty (as defined in the Award) in the amount of $2,309, plus interest thereon at the rate of 6% per year from the date of the Award;
  an award in favor of the Company against Naveen, Valleru, Janumpally, individually and as Trustee of Judos Trust, and Pathuri, as Trustee of Igly Trust, jointly and severally, for contract damages of $1,000, to be satisfied by the transfer of their shares of the Company common stock to the Company equal in value to $1,000, valued as of the date of the Award, in accordance with the provisions of Section 9.06(d) of the Merger Agreement;
  an award in favor of the Company against Naveen, Valleru, Janumpally, individually and as Trustee of Judos Trust, and Pathuri, as Trustee of Igly Trust, jointly and severally, for fraud damages in the amount of $4,327, plus interest thereon at the rate of 6% per year from the date of the Award, together with any out-of-pocket fees and expenses, including attorneys’ and accountants’ fees;
  an award appointing a rehabilitative receiver for the Company under the deadlock situation provisions of Section 11.404(a)(1)(B) of the Texas Business Organizations Code, the primary function of which is to collect the contract and fraud damages, including costs, expenses and fees provided in the Award, due to the Company, with matters regarding such receivership to be set forth in a supplemental award; and
  declaratory relief in favor of the Company and its officers and directors.

 

20
 

 

Section 11.404(a)(1)(B) of the Texas Business Organizations Code provides for the appointment of a rehabilitative receiver when “the governing persons of the entity are deadlocked in the management of the entity’s affairs, the owners or members of the entity are unable to break the deadlock, and irreparable injury to the entity is being suffered or is threatened because of the deadlock.” With respect to the receivership, the owners or holders of all of the shares of common stock of the Company received as a result of the conversion of 1,600 shares of common stock of MMG owed by Naveen and Valleru under the Merger Agreement shall not be entitled to vote any of those shares at any annual or special meeting of the shareholders of the Company during the period of the receivership. Upon the completion of the receiver’s primary function of collecting damages due to the Company, the receivership shall terminate and the restrictions on the rights of the shareholders of the Company imposed by the Award shall be lifted.

 

The parties to the Arbitration filed their requests related to the Supplemental Award and the assignment of a Receiver to the Arbitrator on November 23, 2022. The Company does not have a definitive date by which it will receive the supplemental award identified in the Arbitration Award dated August 31, 2022, but hopes it will be received before the end of the second quarter 2023.

 

The following legal proceedings where Vivos Group borrowings impacting MMG:

 

On August 2, 2022, VREH filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland. The Automatic stay imposed by bankruptcy law prevented the Arbitrator from providing any ruling relating to Note II in the arbitration case at the time of his award.

 

On August 24, 2022, the Company filed a motion to modify the automatic stay in the VREH Bankruptcy case filing to allow the Arbitrator to rule on the Company’s claims against VREH. The Court granted the motion to modify the stay on September 16, 2022, after the initial award by the Arbitrator. The parties submitted material for clarification of the Award on March 7, 2023, and March 20, 2023, which included proposed language for an award to be entered against VREH, in light of the bankruptcy court order lifting the stay.

 

In September 2022 MMG learned that Vivos IT, LLC lawsuit against Second Wind Consultants (“SWC”) in May 2019 included MMG as a plaintiff. The lawsuit brought claims of Fraud in the inducement, unjust enrichment and other monetary claims against SWC. The 5 parties suing SWC, included Vivos IT, LLC, Maslow Media Group, Suresh Venkat Doki, Naveen Doki and Silvija Valleru The lawsuit related to a debt restructuring services agreement secured by Suresh Doki, Naveen Doki and Silvija Valleru to assist the following then owned Vivos entities: Maslow Media Group, Inc., Health Care Resources Network, Inc., Mettler & Michael, Inc., 360 IT Professionals, Inc. and US IT Solutions, Inc., SWC countersued all plaintiffs on September 30th, 2019 seeking to collect the balance of $403 not paid by the Vivos Group. This was not disclosed to Maslow Management or to Reliability before the Merger closed on October 29, 2019.

 

Maslow has retained Counsel and has filed a motion to include all original parties to the SWC agreement, as two of the original parties were not in the original filings (HCRN & Media Solutions). Counsel for SWC requested an extension to the deadline to respond to this motion but has failed to respond before the extension deadline received. The motion is currently being considered by the court.

The risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K are not the only risks facing the Company. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and/or operating results.

 

21
 

 

We are currently engaged in substantial and complex litigation and arbitration with the Vivos Group, the outcome of which could materially harm our business and financial results.

 

As more fully described in Note 6 (Commitments and Contingencies) of the Notes to Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements, we are currently engaged in litigation and arbitration with the Vivos Group. The arbitration was brought by the Company to enforce its rights under the Merger Agreement.

 

The litigation and arbitration are substantial and complex, and they have caused and could continue to cause us to incur significant costs, as well as distract our management over an extended period.
