NOTE 11 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Legal

 

From time to time the Company is subject to various legal claims and proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business.  In the opinion of management, after consultation with legal counsel, the ultimate disposition of any such matters as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, will not have a materially adverse effect on the consolidated financial position or results of operations of the Company.

Guarantees and Indemnities

 

The Company has made certain indemnities, under which it may be required to make payments to an indemnified party, in relation to certain transactions.  The Company indemnifies its directors, officers, employees and agents to the maximum extent permitted under the laws of the State of Delaware.  In connection with its facility lease, the Company has indemnified its lessor for certain claims arising from the use of the facilities.  Also, in connection with its Credit Agreement (Note 8), the Company has agreed to indemnify its lender and others related to the use of the proceeds and other matters.  The duration of the indemnities varies, and in many cases is indefinite.  These indemnities do not provide for any limitation of the maximum potential future payments the Company could be obligated to make.  Historically, the Company has not been obligated to make any payments for these obligations and no liabilities have been recorded for these indemnities in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

Leases

 

The Company leases its offices, manufacturing, and warehouse facility in San Diego County under a non-cancelable operating lease. Our corporate headquarters are in a leased space comprising approximately 24,032 square feet in Escondido, California under a lease that was renewed in August 2018 and expires in August 2024.  The Company also leases a 3,208 square foot facility in Salt Lake City, Utah that houses our Ion software development team. The Company is the lessee of a leased space comprising approximately 12,000 square feet located in Irvine, California with the lease expiring in September 2021.  Bressner Technology GmbH, which was acquired in October 2018, leases space comprising 8,073 square feet which lease expires in December 2019.
