On April2, 2018, the Company acquired all of the outstanding capital stock of CM2.COM, Inc., a Washington corporation doing business as “Erado” (“Erado”), to the terms of a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) entered into by and among Craig Brauff, Julie Lomax Brauff, Shari Wood-Richardson, as Trustee of the Alexandra Brauff Gift Trust U/A 12/21/12, Shari Wood-Richardson, as Trustee of the Courtney Brauff Gift Trust U/A 12/21/12, and Julie A.

Erado is engaged in the business of providing unified archiving, supervision, security and messaging solutions to regulated industries. Erado achieved 2017 revenues of approximately $3million dollars, which was an increase of more than 20% from 2016.
At the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement, the Company paid to the Selling Shareholders of Erado an aggregate of $15,000,000 in cash (the “Closing Consideration”), subject to certain adjustments and a holdback of $2,250,000 for the satisfaction of certain indemnification claims by the Company, if any, during the two-year period following the closing of the Acquisition. An amount equal to $1,125,000 of the holdback amount, less any amounts paid or otherwise subject to a claim for indemnification, will be released to the Selling Shareholders upon the one year anniversary of the closing of the Acquisition, and the balance of the holdback amount, if any, will be distributed to the Selling Shareholders following the two year anniversary of the closing of the Acquisition. The Closing Consideration is subject to a customary working capital adjustment.
The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and covenants of the Company and the Selling Shareholders. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement were made only for purposes of the Purchase Agreement and, as of the specified dates set forth therein, were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Purchase Agreement, may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to the Purchase Agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts, and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors. Investors should not rely on the representations, warranties or covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or conditions of the Company, Erado or the Selling Shareholders or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Purchase Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures.
A copy of the Purchase Agreement is attached as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Purchase Agreement.
