Litigation and Claims


As previously disclosed, on March 23, 2022, the Company settled the Sands Brothers Venture Capital II, LLC lawsuit. Under the terms of the agreement and release, neither the plaintiff nor the Company have admitted or conceded to any wrongdoing and the matter was settled in its entirety for a one-time payment to the plaintiff of approximately $1,175, of which the Company’s portion was $975, with insurance paying the balance. This payment was due and paid by April 8, 2022, and recorded in selling, general, and administrative expenses as a pre-tax charge in the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements during the three-month period ended March 31, 2022.


The Company and its subsidiaries are involved in various other litigation that arises in the ordinary course of business. There are no other pending significant legal proceedings to which the Company is a party for which management believes the ultimate outcome would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position.
