On March 25, 2019 we increased the size of our Board of Directors to five persons and appointed Martina Navratilova to the vacant director position created thereby. In connection with such appointment, we agreed to issue 1,000,000 shares of our restricted common stock to Martina Navratilova. We also agreed to pay her an annual fee of $25,000 for serving as a director is payable in stock. We also granted Ms. Navratilova the right to participate in the commission program we intend to establish with respect to direct (20% commissions) and indirect (10% commissions) sales related to our LGBT Loyalty Sponsorship Programs, the terms of which will be set forth in a separate agreement between us and Ms. Navratilova.
Martina Navratilova, age 62, is a former professional tennis player deemed by many to be the most successful female tennis player of the U.S. Open era. Over a career spanning four decades, Ms.Navratilova won 59 Grand Slam titles, including a record 9 Wimbledon singles championships, 167 singles and 177 doubles championships. Over the course of her tennis career, Ms. Navratilova was distinguished as the Women’s Tennis Association’s (“WTA”) “Tour Player of the Year” seven times, named the Associated Press’s “Female Athlete of the Year” and declared one of the “Top Forty Athletes of All-Time” by Sports Illustrated. After being inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame, she continued to take part in WTA events as well as the 2004 Olympics Games. As she approached her 50th birthday in 2006, she decided to leave the tour circuit behind after her final Grand Slam, a mixed-doubles championship with Bob Bryan at the U.S. Open making her the oldest player to ever win a Grand Slam title. Ms.Navratilova provides commentary to the Tennis Channel’s audience during its coverage of the Grand Slams. She is an ambassador for the WTA and is a regular commentator for the British Broadcasting Corporation and Tennis Channel at Wimbledon. Ms. Navratilova also works for BT Sport and appears regularly on their tennis commentary. She spends as much time as she can with her family in Miami, and often finds herself traveling the world, speaking at events, playing in numerous exhibition matches, and tirelessly promoting all of the issues that are close to her heart. As one of the first openly gay sports figures, she has spent much of her career overcoming prejudices and stereotypes, giving up millions of dollars in endorsements and sponsorships as a result of her insistence on living a life of integrity and honesty. Since coming out in 1981, she has been an inspiring and vocal advocate for equal rights and a strong supporter of many charities benefiting the LGBT community. She has received numerous awards from many of the most influential organizations within the LGBT community. We believe Ms. Navratilova is qualified to serve on our Board of Directors based upon her industry and professional background.
