Commitments and Contingencies Disclosure [Abstract]  





The Company is currently in a dispute with a former employee of its predecessor bBooth, Inc. who has interposed a breach of contract claim in which he alleges that in 2015 he was entitled to approximately $300 in unpaid bonus compensation. This former employee filed his complaint in the Superior Court of California for the County of Los Angeles on November 20, 2019, styled Meyerson v. Verb Technology Company, Inc., et al. (Case No. 19STCV41816). The Company disputed the former employee’s claims and interposed several affirmative defenses, including that the claims are contradicted by documentary evidence, barred by the applicable statute of limitations, and barred by a written, executed release. On February 9, 2021, the former employee’s counsel filed a motion for summary judgment, or in the alternative, summary adjudication against the Company. On October 13, 2021, the California court issued an order (i) denying the former employee’s motion for summary judgment on his claims against the Company, but (ii) granting the former employee’s motion to dismiss the Company’s affirmative defenses, which ruling the Company contends was in error. Under the rules, the Company is precluded from appealing the dismissal of its affirmative defenses until after a trial. On August 29, 2023, after a bench trial at which the Company was precluded from introducing evidence of its affirmative defenses, the court found in favor of Plaintiff Meyerson; and judgment was entered in Meyerson’s favor in the amount of $584 which included interest. Meyerson’s counsel thereafter submitted an untimely request for attorney’s fees and costs which the Company has opposed. As of this date, that motion has yet to be decided. After the trial, the Company filed a timely appeal from the judgment (Meyerson v. Verb Technology Company, Inc. (2023 2nd Appellate District) Case No.: B334777, seeking among other things, that the trial court’s finding be vacated and that the Company’s affirmative defenses be reinstated. As of this date, the appeal has yet to be heard. The Company has accrued the liability at March 31, 2024 and believes the accrual is adequate pending the outcome of the appeal process.


The Company knows of no material proceedings in which any of its directors, officers, or affiliates, or any registered or beneficial stockholder is a party adverse to the Company or any of its subsidiaries or has a material interest adverse to the Company or any of its subsidiaries.


The Company believes it has adequately reserved for all litigation within its financial statements.
