Preferred Unit Redemption 16 $10.8 million Distribution to Non-Controlling Interests in a Subsidiary In February 2019, a subsidiary of the Company, Priority Hospitality Technology (“PHOT”), received a contribution of substantially all of the operating assets of eTab, LLC (“eTab”) and CUMULUS POS, LLC (“Cumulus”) under asset contribution agreements. PHOT is a part of the Company’s Integrated Partners reportable segment. These contributed assets were composed substantially of technology-related assets. No cash consideration was paid to the contributors of the eTab or Cumulus assets on the date of the transactions. As consideration for these contributed assets, the contributors were issued redeemable non- controlling preferred equity interests (“NCIs”) in PHOT. Under these redeemable NCIs, the contributors were eligible to receive up to $4.5 million of profits earned by PHOT, plus a preferred yield (6.0% per annum) on any undistributed preferred equity interest (“Total Preferred Equity Interest”). In November 2020, the Company agreed with the contributors to an exchange of shares of common stock of the Company and/or cash for the remaining undistributed Total Preferred Equity Interest. This established an agreed valuation as of November 12, 2020 for the Company’s common stock to be exchanged at the prior 20-day volume weighted average price of $2.78. The agreement was contingent upon lender approval. The binding agreements for the exchange, therefore, were not entered into until the lender approval was received. Subsequent to receipt of lender approval in April 2021, the Company completed the exchange of 1,428,358 shares of common stock and $814,219 of cash for the Total Preferred Equity Interests. Between the time of the November 2020 agreement and the date of exchange, the Company’s common stock price appreciated to $7.75 per share; therefore, the Company’s financial statements for the three- months ended June 30, 2021 reflect this exchange as a distribution to non-controlling interests at the common stock value of $7.75 reduced by a 10% liquidity discount of $0.775 due to Rule 144 trading restrictions. The total distribution amounted to $10.8 million, comprised of $10.0 million of common stock and $0.8 million of cash.
