Our Business

 

Overview

 

Assure is a best-in-class provider of outsourced Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (“IONM”) and an emerging provider of remote neurology services. The Company delivers a turnkey suite of clinical and operational services to support surgeons and medical facilities during invasive procedures. IONM has been well established as a standard of care and risk mitigation tool for various surgical verticals such as neurosurgery, spine, cardiovascular, orthopedic, ear, nose, and throat (“ENT”), and other surgical procures that place the nervous system at risk. Accredited by The Joint Commission, Assure’s mission is to provide exceptional surgical care and help make invasive surgeries safer. Our strategy focuses on utilizing best of class personnel and partners to deliver outcomes that are beneficial to all stakeholders including patients, surgeons, hospitals, insurers, and shareholders.

 

During each procedure, Assure provides two types of services, the Technical Component and Professional Component of IONM. Our in-house Interoperative Neurophysiologists (“INP”) provide Technical Component IONM services from the operating room throughout the procedure, while the telehealth-oriented supervising practitioners provide a level of redundancy and risk mitigation in support of the onsite INPs and surgical team. In addition, Assure offers a comprehensive suite of IONM services, including scheduling the INP and supervising practitioner, real time monitoring, patient advocacy and subsequent billing and collecting for services provided.

 

 

 

Historically, the foundation of Assure’s business has been providing the Technical Component of IONM via our INP staff. We employ highly trained INPs, which provide a direct point of contact in the operating room during the surgeries to relay critical information to the surgical team. In our one-to-one model, Assure pairs a surgeon with a team of INPs to promote a level of familiarity, comfort and efficiency between the surgeon and the INP. Each INP has the ability to handle approximately 200 cases annually. Our INPs monitor the surgical procedure using state of the art, commercially available, diagnostic medical equipment. Assure INP’s are certified by a third-party accreditation agency. The success of our service depends upon the timely and successful interpretation of the data signals by our INPs and thereafter to quickly determine if there is a deficiency and the surgical intervention required to positively impact the patient and surgery. Employing this model, Assure has rapidly expanded its operational footprint from a home base in Colorado and increased its number of managed cases from approximately 1,600 in 2017 to approximately 17,400 in 2021.

Beginning in the second quarter of 2021, Assure began executing on its long-term vertical integration plan by expanding into remote neurology services. As a result, Assure began delivering remote neurology services in support of the surgical team and INPs rather than exclusively relying on third- party supervising practitioners as it had previously. Assure is transitioning the Professional Component of its IONM service offering. We currently have supervising practitioners employed and working with surgical teams and our INPs from remote locations. They are utilizing equipment and training to monitor electroencephalographic (“EEG”) and electromyography (“EMG”) and a number of complex modalities during surgical procedures to pre-emptively notify the underlying surgeon of any nerve related issues that are identified.

 

Remote neurology services is a one-to-many model, and as a result, has a different financial profile than the Technical Component. Supervising practitioners provide remote neurology services from an off-site location and maintain the ability to manage multiple cases simultaneously. As a result, each supervising practitioner has the ability to handle 2,500 or more cases annually. Patient volume for Assure supervising practitioners are plentiful as they are simply consuming the managed cases created by our INPs performing the Technical Component of IONM. In 2021, Assure performed 17,436 total managed cases including managing approximately 2,100 remote neurology cases. The number of remote neurology managed cases is expected to expand significantly as our supervising practitioners’ ramp-up and more are added to the team.

 

Bringing the Professional Component of IONM in-house generates a number of positives for Assure. First, we will be able to oversee quality of service for providing remote neurology services. This commitment to quality supports our efforts to sign new in-network agreements with insurance payors and facility-wide agreements with hospitals. Second, by bringing the remote neurology function in-house, we are able to significantly reduce cost of delivery, allowing the Company to improve our profitability on every case we perform. Our objective is to cut the cost of delivery for remote neurology services by 50% going forward. Additional scale will serve as a catalyst for margin expansion in the future. Third, for most of the cases we perform, remote neurology services represent the creation of a new revenue stream. Fourth, providing remote neurology services for IONM creates opportunities in adjacent markets where similar remote neurology services are utilized. The shift to providing remote neurology ourselves was straightforward. We had already built the platform and maintained the patient volume. Insourcing this process is simply a matter of replacing contractors with Assure supervising practitioners to service this volume. The result will be higher margins, a new revenue stream and turning cash over more quickly.

Collectively, support from Assure’s high quality Technical and Professional IONM services results in decreased hospital and surgeon liability, abbreviated patient stays, fewer readmissions, reduced hospital costs, enhanced overall patient satisfaction and the efficient achievement of better clinical outcomes.

 

 

 

Over the past two years Assure has built a platform to support our future growth and development. The attributes of our platform detailed in the graphic above include: maintaining exceptional clinical operations, automating our revenue cycle management function and collecting cash faster, boosting managed care through the signing of in-network agreements with insurance payors, minimizing operational bottlenecks, particularly around onboarding and credentialing, instituting an ongoing training and development program for clinical staff to ensure we maintain industry-leading skills and performance, and successful execution on an M&A strategy in a highly fragmented market that has led to three accretive transactions over the past two years. This platform was built with the intent of having these key functional areas support IONM in our key surgical verticals including: spine, neurosurgery, vascular, ENT and orthopedic. As we transition to becoming a provider of remote neurology services, we believe our expertise in IONM will assist us in entering adjacent markets in which Assure supervising practitioners can also provide patient services. We expect to begin providing services in new verticals including EEG, epilepsy, sleep study and stroke by leveraging key competencies we have built over the past two years.

 

In 2021, Assure provided IONM services for approximately 258 surgeons in 150 hospitals and surgery centers (which we refer to as “Procedure Facilities”) located in: Colorado, Texas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Michigan, South Carolina, Arizona, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada and Utah. Our continued organic geographic expansion initiatives, including facility-wide outsourcing agreements with medical facilities and hospital networks, potential for selective acquisitions, and the extension of our platform into remote neurology services, is expected to generate substantial growth opportunities going forward.

 

Clinical leadership, surgeon support and patient care are Assure’s cornerstones. We make substantial ongoing investments in our training and development of clinical staff and have created a fellowship program to rigorously train new INPs to cost-effectively join the Assure team. In addition, we have partnered with the internationally renowned Texas Back Institute on clinical research relating to IONM safety and efficacy. Isador Lieberman, M.D., the president and director of the scoliosis and spine tumor program at the Texas Back Institute, is a member of Assure’s Medical Advisory Committee.

 

Our Strategy

 

Our strategy is to build a telehealth remote neurology services company with exceptional capabilities in IONM and numerous adjacent markets

 

We have a history of providing industry-leading IONM services with an emphasis on clinical excellence and patient well-being, and we are in the midst of a significant transformation to position ourselves for growth. With our focus on execution and providing a high level of patient care, we are transforming from being a provider of the Technical Component of IONM utilizing a one-to-one model of INPs in the operating room to a business that also provides the Professional Component of IONM via off-site remote neurology services in a far more scalable one-to-many model. The next step in our development will be expanding into adjacent remote neurology markets while utilizing the same platform and employees. This will extend our reach and redefine our position in the industry. We are thoughtfully deploying capital and focusing our investment in high potential growth initiatives including: organically expanding into new states, growing our remote neurology platform, signing new IONM outsourcing agreements with hospitals and medical facilities, as well as opportunistic M&A. In addition, we are investing to make our revenue cycle management function more automated, improving the velocity of our cash collections. The data and analytics-driven Company we are building will play a bigger role in the success of our key stakeholder groups: surgeons, hospitals, insurance companies and patients, and in turn deliver attractive returns to our stockholders.

Our Responsibilities

 

Assure offers a turnkey full suite of IONM services including scheduling of the INP and supervising practitioner, real time monitoring and subsequent billing for services provided.

 

Prior to a patient’s procedure, Assure will coordinate with the surgeon’s office to obtain the necessary information and documentation to provide IONM services, such as the patients’ insurance information, patients’ demographic information and office/clinic notes. We provide educational materials to the surgeons office for inclusion in each surgical patient’s pre-operative packets to educate and provide comfort to the patient about IONM services. Prior to the surgery, an Assure patient advocate connects with the patient to explain our role during the surgery, the benefits of IONM and billing issues that may affect the patient. Assure’s INP will arrive at the hospital with an IONM unit and disposable supplies and electrodes. The INP meets with the patient to explain their role during the surgery, discuss the patients’ pertinent past medical history, explain the risks and benefits associated with IONM and have the patient sign consenting forms for IONM to be utilized on their procedure.

 

All IONM procedures include both technical services (performed by INPs) and professional services (performed by supervising practitioners). During the surgery, the INP will continuously monitor the functional integrity of the peripheral or central nervous system by recording, troubleshooting, documenting and communicating activity arising from the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, somatosensory or motor nerve systems using the IONM unit provided by Assure and communicating results in real-time to the surgeon. The INP and surgeon are supported by an off-site supervising practitioner providing remote neurology oversight services. The supervising practitioner also monitors the functional integrity of the peripheral or central nervous system throughout the procedure communicating in real-time with the surgeon and INP throughout the process. In some cases (and increasingly), remote neurology services are performed directly by Assure’s supervising practitioners. In other instances, these services are provided by and through subsidiaries, which owns interest in entities that either directly perform the Professional Component through third party contracted neurologists or oversight reading physicians.

 

Assure Interoperative Neurophysiologists

 

Assure currently employs specialized IONM INPs that are board certified CNIM or board eligible CNIM by ABRET. ABRET seeks to encourage, establish and maintain standards of clinical EEG, Evoked Potential Technology, and Neurophysiologic Intraoperative and long-term monitoring, by offering credentialing exams to evaluate the skills and knowledge of technologists, and by supporting lab accreditation.

 

Assure has developed an Intraoperative Neurophysiologist Fellowship program. This Fellowship program trains new INPs from start to board certification, allowing for consistently high caliber well trained professional INPs for placement into emerging and growing markets. Training and developing our own talent pool allow for more flexible scalability.

 

Assure Supervising Practitioners

 

Assure currently employ supervising practitioners performing remote neurology services. These physicians are highly trained and are specialized in providing off-site tele neurology services. Multiple Assure supervising practitioners have already received the training necessary to provide remote neurology services in targeted expansion markets including EEG.

Commercial Insurance

 

Following the procedure, assuming the patient has health care insurance under a commercial health care policy, we will invoice the insurance company directly for IONM services. The invoice provided to the insurance company will detail each modality monitored by the INP for the neural protection of the patient during the procedure. After we have submitted the claim to the private insurance company, our patient advocate will contact the patient to further explain the details on the explanation of benefits insurance form and to ensure the patient was satisfied with the level of service provided by us.

 

Facility Billing

 

In the event a patient is uninsured or has insurance coverage under a government health care policy (Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare or Veterans Administration) the facility where the procedure took place will be billed for the IONM services for the patient, as agreed to in each facility service contract.

 

Hospital Agreements

 

Assure Neuromonitoring must enter into a contracted services agreement with each procedure facility it provides IONM services prior to initiating IONM services. The purpose of these agreements is to ensure that Assure provides its services in accordance with all regulatory and accreditation standards, including those requirements imposed by The Joint Commission, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and all applicable federal, state and local laws.

 

Pursuant to these agreements, Assure Neuromonitoring has agreed to provide IONM services and shall ensure the real-time interpretation of such monitoring to patients.

 

Each INP is required to be approved and decreed privileges to practice IONM by each of the contracted facilities. All INP who are performing onsite monitoring must be certified or board eligible from one of the following organizations (i) American Board of Neurophysiologic Monitoring; (ii) American Board of Electrodiagnostic Technologists; or (iii) ABRET.

 

Payment for services, revenue mix and seasonality

 

Over half of Assure’s patients commonly have commercial health insurance coverage (“Commercial Payor”) and we are compensated via their health insurance plan. Assure’s commercial insurance patients represent the significant majority of our revenue and profit margin. We produce separate bills for the Technical Component and the Professional Component of the IONM services we perform. The remainder of our patients, who do not have commercial insurance coverage, compensate us via hospital agreements. Regardless of type of payment and whether the patient has commercial insurance coverage, Assure provides the same high level of service and quality of care.

 

The majority of our commercial payors are billed out-of-network and we negotiate payment for each claim. The remainder of commercial payors utilize a contracted rate. The majority of contracted rates are via indirect agreements with third-party organizations or related entities of the commercial payor with a smaller portion in direct agreements with contracted rates.

 

We bill, collect and keep 100% of the revenue associated with the Technical Component of the services we provide. For the Professional Component, when the supervising practitioner is an Assure employee or where we 100% own the entity managing the procedure the Company bills, collects and keeps 100% of the revenue. In instances in which the Professional Component are provided via Managed Service Agreements (“MSAs”) with surgeons or through agreements with Professional Entities (“PEs”), we engage in a revenue share based on percent of revenue and net income.

 

In addition, the surgical segment of the health care industry tends to be impacted by seasonality due to the nature of most benefit plans resetting on a calendar year basis. As patients utilize and reduce their remaining deductible throughout the year, we typically see an increase in volume throughout the year with the biggest impact coming in the fourth quarter. Historically, our annual revenues are overweighted in the fourth quarter.

Seasonality impacts our revenue mix for similar reasons. As patients with commercial insurance utilize and reduce their remaining deductible throughout the year, we typically see an increase in volume with the biggest impact coming in the fourth quarter. Historically, our revenue mix is relatively overweighted to patients with commercial insurance in the second half of the year and to patients with government insurance in the first half of the year.

 

Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic

 

Our business and results of operations have been, and continues to be, adversely affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic and related events and we expect its impact to continue. Although a significant portion of our anticipated revenue for 2022 is derived from fixed-fee and minimum-guarantee arrangements, primarily from large, well-capitalized customers which we believe somewhat mitigates the risks to our business, our per-unit and variable-fee based revenue will continue to be susceptible to the volatility, supply chain disruptions, microchip shortages and potential market downturns induced by the COVID-19 pandemic. See “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” for a more detailed discussion of the impact of COVID-19 on our operations

If any of the following risks occur, our business, financial condition or results of operations could be materially and adversely affected.

 

Business Related Risks

 

·Our business and operations are subject to risks and uncertainty surrounding the future spread of COVID-19 and related variants as well as the potential impact that these may have on our future operations.

 

·We have incurred operating losses in some of our historical periods and we could incur additional losses until we successfully integrate acquired practices, improve collections for managed cases and reduce operating expenses.

 

·We may need to raise additional funds to finance our operations and our expansion and growth plans; we may not be able to do so when necessary, and/or the terms of any financings may not be advantageous to us.

 

·Our business is not highly diversified and approximately 75% of our case volume is currently concentrated in Colorado and Texas where we are susceptible to local and regional fluctuations in demand for our service, downturns in the economy, adverse weather conditions, changes in local or state regulations, and other localized market changes.

 

·We are expanding our offering beyond our legacy provision of the Technical Component of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (“IONM”) to provide the Professional Component by delivering remote neurology services provided as part of IONM. We face significant competition from other health care providers for patients, physicians, nurses and technical staff. Some of our competitors are larger and have longstanding and well-established relationships with physicians and third-party payors in the community.

 

·Our founder and director, Preston Parsons, is our single largest shareholder and beneficially owns approximately 4.3 million shares or 33% of our issued and outstanding shares of common stock. Mr. Parsons has the ability to influence the outcome of matters submitted to our shareholders for approval.

 

·Our development will depend on the efforts of key management, key personnel and our relationships with medical partners in the surgical industry, and the loss of any of these people and partnerships, particularly to competitors, could have a material adverse effect on our business.

 

11

 

 

·We depend on payments from third-party payors, including private insurers, managed care organizations and hospitals, which may cause fluctuations in our revenue and delays and uncertainties in the reimbursement rate and the timing of reimbursement.

 

·State and Federal surprise billing legislation could lead to lower reimbursement rates.

 

·Value-based purchasing initiatives of both governmental and private payors tying financial incentives to quality and efficiency of care will increasingly affect the results of operations of hospitals and other health care facilities where we operate and may negatively impact our revenues.

 

·Public scrutiny of the intraoperative neuromonitoring industry in general could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.

 

·Accounting adjustments due to changes in circumstances or estimates may require us to write-off accounts receivables or write-down intangible assets, such as goodwill, may have a material impact on our financial reporting and results of operations.

 

·Our business strategy has been to grow through expansion. Our efforts to execute our acquisition strategy may be affected by our ability to identify suitable candidates and negotiate and close acquisition transactions on acceptable terms.

 

·Our success, in large part, is dependent upon referrals to our physicians from other physicians, systems, health plans and others in the communities in which we operate, and upon our medical staff’s ability to maintain good relations with these referral sources.

 

·We may be involved in lawsuits, claims, audits and investigations, including those arising out of services provided, personal injury claims, professional liability claims, billing and marketing practices, employment disputes and contractual claims.

 

·We are subject to rising costs, including malpractice insurance premiums or claims may adversely affect our business.

 

·We are reliant on Software-as-a-Service (Saas) technologies from third parties, which could adversely affect our business.

 

·Our business depends on network and mobile infrastructure developed and maintained by third-party providers. Any significant interruptions in service could result in limited capacity, processing delays and loss of customers.

 

·Cybersecurity incidents could disrupt business operations, result in the loss of critical and confidential information, and adversely impact our reputation and results of operations.

 

·We rely on 3rd party software-as-a-service vendors for certain operational and administrative functions.

 

·There is currently a shortage of certified, interoperative neurophysiologists in the United States.

 

Health Care Industry Regulatory Risks

 

·The health care industry is heavily regulated, and we are required to comply with extensive and complex laws and regulations at the federal, state and local government levels. These regulations include:

 

oAnti-Kickback Statute, a provision of the Social Security Act of 1972

 

oStark Law, 42 U.S.C. 1395nn, also known as the physician self-referral law

 

12

 

 

oHealth Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996

 

oAffordable Care Act

 

oHealth Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010

 

oHealth Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”)

 

·If we fail to comply with applicable laws and regulations, we could suffer penalties or be required to make significant changes to our operations.

 

·As a health care provider, we are subject to professional liability claims both directly via our neurophysiologic (“INP”) staff and indirectly through the malpractice of our reading partners and surgical partners.

 

·Political and regulatory changes, including insurance options, billing restrictions, patient rights and reimbursement regulation, may have a negative impact on the health care industry and our business.

 

Risk Related to our Debenture

 

·Restrictive covenants in our loan agreements with Centurion Financial Trust may restrict our ability to pursue our business strategies.

 

·Our obligations to Centurion Financial Trust are secured by a security interest in substantially all of our assets, if we default on those obligations, the lender could foreclose on our assets.

 

Risk Related to our Stock

 

·We qualify as an “emerging growth company” under the JOBS Act. As a result, we are permitted to, and intend to, rely on exemptions from certain disclosure requirements.

 

·Broad market and industry factors may affect the price of our common shares, regardless of our actual operating performance.

 

·Our common stock is listed in the U.S. on the NASDAQ Capital Markets.

 

·The issuance of shares of common stock upon exercise of outstanding warrants could result in substantial dilution to our stockholders, which may have a negative effect on the price of our common stock.

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

This prospectus relates to the sale or other disposition of shares of our common stock by the selling stockholders listed under “Selling Stockholders” section below, and their transferees. We will not receive any proceeds from any sale of the shares by the selling stockholders. We may receive proceeds upon the exercise of warrants for 3,271,542 shares registered for resale hereunder, which we will use for working capital purposes and general corporate expenses.

 

DETERMINATION OF OFFERING PRICE

 

The selling stockholders will offer common stock at the prevailing market prices or privately negotiated price as they may determine from time to time.

 

The offering price of our common stock to be sold by the selling stockholders does not necessarily bear any relationship to our book value, assets, past operating results, financial condition or any other established criteria of value. The facts considered in determining the offering price were our financial condition and prospects, our limited operating history and the general condition of the securities market.

 

In addition, there is no assurance that our common stock will trade at market prices in excess of the offering price as prices for common stock in any public market will be determined in the marketplace and may be influenced by many factors, including the depth and liquidity.

 

DIVIDEND POLICY

 

We do not intend to pay dividends for the foreseeable future. In addition, our ability to pay dividends is restricted by agreements governing Assure’s and its subsidiaries’ debt, including the Company’s senior secured convertible notes. See “Risk Factors” above.

 

MARKET FOR COMMON SHARES

 

Our shares of common stock trade on the NASDAQ under the symbol “IONM”. On May 2, 2022, the last reported sale price of the common stock on the NASDAQ was $3.79 per share.

Except as indicated in the footnotes to the following table, each selling stockholder named in the table has sole voting and investment power with respect to the shares set forth opposite such stockholder’s name. The percentage of ownership of each selling stockholder in the following table is based upon 12,919,666 shares of common stock outstanding as of May 2, 2022.

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

 

Authorized Capital Stock

 

Our authorized capital stock consists of 180,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share. As of May 2, 2021 there were 12,919,666 shares of our common stock outstanding.

 

Common Stock

 

We are authorized to issue up to a total of 180,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share. Holders of our common stock are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters submitted to a vote of our stockholders. Holders of our common stock have no cumulative voting rights. Further, holders of our common stock have no preemptive or conversion rights or other subscription rights. Upon our liquidation, dissolution or winding-up, holders of our common stock are entitled to share in all assets remaining after payment of all liabilities and the liquidation preferences of any of our outstanding shares of preferred stock. Holders of our common stock are entitled to receive dividends, if any, as may be declared from time to time by our Board out of our assets which are legally available. Such dividends, if any, are payable in cash, in property or in shares of capital stock.

 

The holders of shares of our common stock entitled to cast at least a majority of the total votes entitled to be cast by the holders of all of our outstanding capital stock, present in person or by proxy, are necessary to constitute a quorum at any meeting. If a quorum is present, an action by stockholders entitled to vote on a matter is approved if the number of votes cast in favor of the action exceeds the number of votes cast in opposition to the action. The vote of a majority of our stock held by shareholders present in person or represented by proxy and entitled to vote at the Meeting will be sufficient to elect Directors or to approve a proposal.

 

Anti-Takeover Provisions of Nevada State Law

 

Certain anti-takeover provisions of Nevada law could have the effect of delaying or preventing a third party from acquiring us, even if the acquisition arguably could benefit our stockholders.

 

Nevada’s “combinations with interested stockholders” statutes, Nevada Revised Statues (“NRS”) 78.411 through 78.444, inclusive, prohibit specified types of business “combinations” between certain Nevada corporations and any person deemed to be an “interested stockholder” for two years after such person first becomes an “interested stockholder” unless the corporation’s board of directors approves the combination, or the transaction by which such person becomes an “interested stockholder”, in advance, or unless the combination is approved by the board of directors and sixty percent of the corporation’s voting power not beneficially owned by the interested stockholder, its affiliates and associates. Further, in the absence of prior approval certain restrictions may apply even after such two-year period. However, these statutes do not apply to any combination of a corporation and an interested stockholder after the expiration of four years after the person first became an interested stockholder. For purposes of these statutes, an “interested stockholder” is any person who is (1) the beneficial owner, directly or indirectly, of ten percent or more of the voting power of the outstanding voting shares of the corporation, or (2) an affiliate or associate of the corporation and at any time within the two previous years was the beneficial owner, directly or indirectly, of ten percent or more of the voting power of the then outstanding shares of the corporation. The definition of the term “combination” is sufficiently broad to cover most significant transactions between a corporation and an “interested stockholder.” These statutes generally apply to Nevada corporations with 200 or more stockholders of record. However, a Nevada corporation may elect in its articles of incorporation not to be governed by these particular laws, but if such election is not made in the corporation’s original articles of incorporation, the amendment (1) must be approved by the affirmative vote of the holders of stock representing a majority of the outstanding voting power of the corporation not beneficially owned by interested stockholders or their affiliates and associates, and (2) is not effective until 18 months after the vote approving the amendment and does not apply to any combination with a person who first became an interested stockholder on or before the effective date of the amendment. We have made such an election in our original articles of incorporation.

Nevada’s “acquisition of controlling interest” statutes, NRS 78.378 through 78.379, inclusive, contain provisions governing the acquisition of a controlling interest in certain Nevada corporations. These “control share” laws provide generally that any person that acquires a “controlling interest” in certain Nevada corporations may be denied voting rights, unless a majority of the disinterested stockholders of the corporation elects to restore such voting rights. Absent such provision in our bylaws, these laws would apply to us as of a particular date if we were to have 200 or more stockholders of record (at least 100 of whom have addresses in Nevada appearing on our stock ledger at all times during the 90 days immediately preceding that date) and do business in the State of Nevada directly or through an affiliated corporation, unless our articles of incorporation or bylaws in effect on the tenth day after the acquisition of a controlling interest provide otherwise. These laws provide that a person acquires a “controlling interest” whenever a person acquires shares of a subject corporation that, but for the application of these provisions of the NRS, would enable that person to exercise (1) one fifth or more, but less than one third, (2) one third or more, but less than a majority or (3) a majority or more, of all of the voting power of the corporation in the election of directors. Once an acquirer crosses one of these thresholds, shares which it acquired in the transaction taking it over the threshold and within the 90 days immediately preceding the date when the acquiring person acquired or offered to acquire a controlling interest become “control shares” to which the voting restrictions described above apply.

 

Nevada law also provides that directors may resist a change or potential change in control if the directors determine that the change is opposed to, or not in the best interests of, the corporation. The existence of the foregoing provisions and other potential anti-takeover measures could limit the price that investors might be willing to pay in the future for shares of our common stock. They could also deter potential acquirers of our Company, thereby reducing the likelihood that you could receive a premium for your common stock in an acquisition.

 

Anti-Takeover Effects of Our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws

 

The following provisions of our articles of incorporation and bylaws could have the effect of delaying or discouraging another party from acquiring control of us and could encourage persons seeking to acquire control of us to first negotiate with our board of directors:

 

  no cumulative voting in the election of directors, which limits the ability of minority stockholders to elect director candidates;

 

  the right of our board of directors to elect a director to fill a vacancy created by the expansion of the board of directors or the resignation, death or removal of a director, with our stockholders only allowed to fill such a vacancy if not filled by the board;

 

  the ability of our board of directors to alter our bylaws without obtaining shareholder approval; and

 

  the requirement that a special meeting of stockholders may be called only by either (i) the directors; (ii) the chairman of the board; or (iii) the chief executive officer.

 

Forum Selection and Jurisdiction

 

Our bylaws provides that unless we consent in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the applicable court of competent jurisdiction shall be the state and federal courts located in Denver, Colorado (the “Colorado Court”),which Colorado Court shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, be the sole and exclusive forum for actions or other proceedings relating to:

 

  (i) a derivative action;

 

24

 

 

  (ii) an application for an oppression remedy, including an application for leave to commence such a proceeding;

 

  (iii) an action asserting a claim of breach of the duty of care owed by us; any director, officer or other employee or any shareholder;

 

  (iv) an action asserting a claim of breach of fiduciary duty owed by any director, officer or other employee or any shareholder;

 

  (v) an action or other proceeding asserting a claim or seeking a remedy pursuant to any provision of the Nevada Revised Statute or our articles or bylaws; and

 

  (vi) an action or other proceeding asserting a claim against us or any director or officer or other employee of the Corporation regarding a matter of the regulation of our business and affairs.

 

The choice of forum provision may limit a shareholder’s ability to bring a claim in a judicial forum that it finds favorable for disputes, which may discourage such lawsuits. We interpret the forum selection clauses in our bylaws to be limited to specified actions and not to apply to actions arising under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act. Section 27 of the Exchange Act provides that, United States federal courts shall have jurisdiction over all suits and any action brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Exchange Act or the rules and regulations thereunder and Section 22 of the Securities Act provides that, United States federal and state courts shall have concurrent jurisdiction over all suits brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the U.S. Securities Act or the rules and regulations thereunder.

 

Transfer Agent and Registrar

 

The transfer agent and registrar for our common stock is Computershare Trust Company of Canada.

 

Indemnification of Directors and Officers

 

The NRS empower us to indemnify our directors and officers against expenses relating to certain actions, suits or proceedings as provided for therein. In order for such indemnification to be available, the applicable director or officer must not have acted in a manner that constituted a breach of his or her fiduciary duties and involved intentional misconduct, fraud or a knowing violation of law, or must have acted in good faith and reasonably believed that his or her conduct was in, or not opposed to, our best interests. In the event of a criminal action, the applicable director or officer must not have had reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful.

 

Pursuant to our articles, we may indemnify each of our present and future directors, officers, employees or agents who becomes a party or is threatened to be made a party to any suit or proceeding, whether pending, completed or merely threatened, and whether said suit or proceeding is civil, criminal, administrative, investigative, or otherwise, except an action by or in the right of the Company, by reason of the fact that he is or was a director, officer, employee, or agent of the Company, or is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, employee, or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, or other enterprise, against expenses, including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines, and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with the action, suit, proceeding or settlement, provided such person acted in good faith and in a manner which he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interest of the Company, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his conduct was unlawful.

 

The expenses of directors, officers, employees or agents of the Company incurred in defending a civil or criminal action, suit, or proceeding may be paid by the Company as they are incurred and in advance of the final disposition of the action, suit, or proceeding, if and only if the director, officer, employee or agent undertakes to repay said expenses to the Company if it is ultimately determined by a court of competent jurisdiction, after exhaustion of all appeals therefrom, that he is not entitled to be indemnified by the corporation.

 

25

 

 

No indemnification shall be applied, and any advancement of expenses to or on behalf of any director, officer, employee or agent must be returned to the Company, if a final adjudication establishes that the person’s acts or omissions involved a breach of any fiduciary duties, where applicable, intentional misconduct, fraud or a knowing violation of the law which was material to the cause of action.

 

The NRS further provides that a corporation may purchase and maintain insurance or make other financial arrangements on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise for any liability asserted against him and liability and expenses incurred by him in his capacity as a director, officer, employee or agent, or arising out of his status as such, whether or not the corporation has the authority to indemnify him against such liability and expenses. We have secured a directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policy. We expect that we will continue to maintain such a policy.

 

Disclosure of Commission Position on Indemnification for Securities Act Liabilities

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities under the Securities Act may be permitted to officers, directors or persons controlling the Company pursuant to the foregoing provisions, the Company has been informed that is it is the opinion of the SEC that such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in such Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable.
