Note 10 - Warrant redemption liability


The Plan of Reorganization provides the right for the Company to call, and the Company or its designee to redeem warrants that are not exercised timely, as specified in the Plan, by transferring a $0.10 redemption fee per warrant to the former holders. Certain individuals desiring to become a Company designee to redeem warrants have deposited redemption fees with the Company that, when warrants are redeemed, will be forwarded to the former warrant holders at their last known address 30 days after the last warrant of a class is exercised, or earlier at the discretion of the Company. The Company has arranged for a service to process the redemption fees in offset to an equal amount of liability. In prior years the Series A and Series C redemption fees have been distributed through DTCC into holder’s brokerage accounts or directly to the holders and are no longer outstanding. Once the Series B and D warrants have been fully redeemed the fees for each of these warrant series will likewise be distributed. The President and CEO, Chet Billingsley has agreed to assume personal liability for paying the redemption fees and therefore warrant redemption fees received are retained by the Company for operating costs. Should Mr. Billingsley be incapacitated or otherwise become unable to pay the warrant redemption fees, the Company will remit the warrant liability to former holders from amounts due him which are sufficient to cover the redemption fee at December 31, 2016 and 2015.
