As previously reported, the Company recently completed a restatement of prior financial statements and is now focusing on completing its financial statements for 2020 and the first two quarters of 2021.  It is not currently reporting its regular financial results until this process has been completed.  For this reason, the press release includes only certain limited financial results, primarily relating to sales and cash, for three months ended June 30, 2021.

The information furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 of this report and the exhibits attached hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as amended (the “Exchange Act”, or otherwise subject to liabilities under that section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing of the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), whether made before or after the date hereof, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

Item 8.01.  Other Events

The Press Release also announced that the Company has entered into a settlement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).  This settlement resolves a previously-announced investigation related to accounting issues that resulted in the Company’s announcement on October 21, 2019 that its financial results reported in its annual report on Form 10-K for the year 2018 and its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 should not be relied upon.  The Company restated those financial statements in its Annual Report on 10-K for the year 2019, filed with the SEC on June 22, 2021.  Under the terms of the settlement, in addition to other non-monetary settlement terms, (1) the Company has agreed to pay a civil monetary penalty of $200,000, and (2) Shannon Greene, the Company’s former Chief Financial Officer and Chief Executive Officer, has agreed to pay a civil monetary penalty of $25,000.  In accepting the Company’s settlement offer, the SEC took into account remedial actions the Company took promptly after learning of the issues detailed in the SEC’s order. A copy of the Press Release is attached as Exhibit 99.1.
