Note 17 - Commitments and Contingencies




Certain conditions may exist as of the date the condensed consolidated financial statements are issued which may result in a loss to the Company, but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. The Company assesses such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company, or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or unasserted claims, as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought therein.


If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, then the estimated liability would be accrued in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potentially material loss contingency is not probable, but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability and an estimate of the range of possible losses, if determinable and material, would be disclosed. 


Loss contingencies considered remote are generally not disclosed, unless they involve guarantees, in which case the guarantees would be disclosed. There can be no assurance that such matters will not materially and adversely affect the Company’s business, financial position, and results of operations or cash flows. 


On January 22, 2018, Deque Systems, Inc. filed a motion for entry of default judgment (the “Motion”) against SGS in the Circuit Court of Fairfax County, Virginia. The Motion alleged that SGS failed to respond to a complaint served on November 22, 2017. The Motion requested a default judgment in the amount of $336,000. On August 10, 2018, the parties agreed to a settlement payment schedule. In connection with the Spin-off, Sysorex agreed to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Company from and against any damages in connection with Sysorex liabilities, including this matter.


On April 6, 2018, AVT Technology Solutions, LLC, filed a complaint in the United States District Court Middle District of Florida Tamp Division against Inpixon and Sysorex, formerly Inpixon USA, alleging breach of contract, breach of corporate guaranty and unjust enrichment in connection with non-payment for goods received and requesting a judgment in an amount of not less than $9,152,698.71. On August 15, 2018, the parties entered into a settlement agreement pursuant to which Sysorex agreed to a settlement payment schedule in connection with this matter. Pursuant to the terms of the settlement agreement, the Company is not liable for any payments to be made by Sysorex or any damages that may arise under such agreement.


On March 19, 2018, Inpixon was notified by a consultant for advisory services (the “Consultant”) that it believes the Company is required to pay a minimum project fee in an amount equal to $1 million less certain amounts previously paid as a result of the Company’s completion of certain financing transactions. On April 18, 2018, the Consultant filed a demand for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association. The Company is contesting such demand and a hearing has been scheduled for December 4-6, 2018.


Compliance with Nasdaq Continued Listing Requirement


On May 19, 2017, the Company received written notice from the Listing Qualifications Staff of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that it no longer complied with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) due to our failure to maintain a minimum of $2,500,000 in stockholders’ equity or to demonstrate compliance with any alternative to such requirement. On October 24, 2017, the Company received notification from Nasdaq that the Company had not regained compliance with the Minimum Stockholders’ Equity Requirement. The Company appealed the Staff Delisting Determination and requested a hearing that was held on December 7, 2017. As a result, the suspension and delisting was stayed pending the issuance of a written decision by the Nasdaq Hearings Panel. By decision dated December 14, 2017, the Panel granted the Company’s request for a further extension, through April 23, 2018, to evidence compliance with the $2,500,000 stockholders’ equity requirement. Following the closing of a public offering on April 24, 2018, on May 2, 2018, the Company received a letter from Nasdaq notifying the Company that it had regained compliance with the $2.5 million minimum stockholders’ equity requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1).


On May 17, 2018, a letter from the Listing Qualifications Staff of Nasdaq indicating that, based upon the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock for the last 30 consecutive business days beginning on April 5, 2018 and ending on May 16, 2018, the Company no longer meets the requirement to maintain a minimum bid price of $1 per share, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).


In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided a period of 180 calendar days, or until November 13, 2018, in which to regain compliance. In order to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement, the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock must be at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, but generally no more than twenty consecutive business days during this 180-day period. As of the date of this Form 10-Q, the closing bid price of the common stock has not been equal to or greater than $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days. As a result, the Company does not expect to be able to regain compliance within this 180-day period; however, the Company will be eligible to seek an additional compliance period of 180 calendar days if it meets the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and provide written notice to Nasdaq of the Company’s intent to cure the deficiency during this second compliance period, by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. However, if it appears to the Nasdaq Staff that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if we are otherwise not eligible, Nasdaq will provide notice to the Company that the common stock will be subject to delisting.


On October 31, 2018, the Company received stockholder approval for a reverse stock split at its 2018 annual meeting of stockholders and implemented a 1-for-40 reverse stock split effective as of November 2, 2018, which it believes will cause the Company to comply with the minimum bid price requirement.
