7. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
The Company is a party to a variety of agreements in the ordinary course of business under which it may be obligated to indemnify third parties with respect to certain matters. These obligations include, but are not limited to, contracts entered into with physicians where the Company agrees, under certain circumstances, to indemnify a third party, against losses arising from matters including but not limited to medical malpractice and other liability. The impact of any such future claims, if made, on future financial results is not subject to reasonable estimation because considerable uncertainty exists as to final outcome of these potential claims.
As permitted under Nevada law, the Company has agreements whereby it indemnifies its officers and directors for certain events or occurrences while the officer or director is, or was, serving at the Company’s request in such capacity. The maximum potential amount of future payments the Company could be required to make under these indemnification agreements is unlimited; however, the Company believes, given the absence of any such payments in the Company’s history, and the estimated low probability of such payments in the future, that the estimated fair value of these indemnification agreements is immaterial. In addition, the Company has directors’ and officers’ liability insurance coverage that is intended to reduce its financial exposure and may enable the Company to recover any payments, should they occur.
Performance share compensation
As part of a reverse takeover transaction (“RTO”) during 2016, the Company entered into a one-time stock grant agreement with two executives (Messrs. Preston Parsons and Matthew Willer (former Chief Financial Officer) which defines a bonus share threshold as follows: should the Company meet or exceed a 2017 fiscal year EBITDA threshold of Cdn$7,500, the Company would issue 6,000,000 common shares of the surviving issuer at the trailing 30-day average closing price. The performance share grant was structured as part of the RTO transaction to provide additional equity to management conditioned upon performance achievements. As the Company achieved the EBITDA threshold for the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company has recorded a liability of approximately $16 million for the value of the shares to be issued while the agreements are modified and the cash collected threshold is achieved, which the Company deems probable. During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company settled 5,000,000 performance shares resulting from the issuance of 5,000,000 common shares. During the first quarter of 2021, the Company settled an additional 219,838 performance shares. As of March 31, 2021, 780,162 performance shares have not been settled.
