Lease Commitments


We lease our office facility under an operating lease that expires in June 2024. Rent expense associated with this lease was approximately $32,000 and $96,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively.


Legal Proceedings


A legal proceeding has been initiated by a former employee alleging wrongful termination, retaliation, infliction of emotional distress, negligent supervision, hiring and retention and slander. An independent investigation into this individual’s allegations of whistleblower retaliation, while still an employee, was conducted utilizing an outside investigator and concluded that such allegations were not substantiated. We intend to vigorously defend the lawsuit (which we have compelled into arbitration); however, in light of our cash position, there can be no assurance that the defense and/or settlement of this matter will not have a material adverse impact on our business.
