Operating Leases

On October 16, 2013, we entered into a 1 year sub-lease agreement with our current landlord for our current office space starting January 1, 2014 and terminating December 31, 2014. The monthly rent payment was approximately $32,000 plus additional charges. On January 1, 2015 entered into a new sub-lease for our current office space for 38 months, with a monthly rent payment of approximately $32,000 per month plus additional charges.

Total rent expense was approximately $0.1 million and $0.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.


Our former Chief Financial Officer, filed a complaint against the Company and Seth Grae, President and Chief Executive Officer, 16 with the Circuit Court of Fairfax County, Virginia (the “Fairfax County Complaint”), and a separate complaint against the Company with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (the “OSHA Complaint”) on March 9, 2015.

The Fairfax County Complaint contained two claims for damages. The first claim alleged that the Company and Mr. Grae made defamatory statements regarding the former Chief Financial Officer. The claim demands at least $1,000,000 in compensatory damages; costs, including reasonable fees for attorneys; and punitive damages of $1,000,000. The second claim alleges that the Company breached the former Chief Financial Officer’s employment contract by not paying the former Chief Financial Officer $15,507 for paid time off, and demands additional compensatory damages of at least $15,507.

The OSHA Complaint alleges that the Company unlawfully retaliated against the former Chief Financial Officer for challenging allegedly improper actions of the Company by making allegedly defamatory statements and terminating him from his employment with the Company. The former Chief Financial Officer’s demand for damages is for back pay, front pay, and special damages. The complaint did not specify the amount of damages sought.

The Company believes that all of the claims by the former Chief Financial Officer are without merit and intends to vigorously defend itself.
