5.Accrued Indemnification Obligation

 

In January 2014, the Company issued 2,334,391 shares of restricted common stock to a member of its Board of Directors (Dr. Brian Kaspar, see Note 6), a related party, pursuant to a consulting agreement for scientific advisory services to be performed by the director on behalf of the Company. In connection with the restricted stock purchase agreement, the Company agreed to indemnify Dr. Kaspar for any taxes, interest, fines, penalties or other costs and expenses that Dr. Kaspar may incur in the future should the Internal Revenue Service succeed in a tax determination that the stock price paid by Dr. Kaspar (which was par value) was lower than the fair market value of the stock on the date of grant. The indemnification term is in effect for six years after the due date of the tax return for the year in which the stock was issued.  In January 2016, the Company entered into an employment agreement with Dr. Kaspar. 

 

In connection with the preparation of the Company's audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company determined that the per share fair value of the Company's common stock on January 28, 2014, the grant date, was $1.51.  

 

As a result, the Company issued Dr. Kaspar an amended Form 1099 for the 2014 tax year reflecting an aggregate fair value of the restricted stock grant of $3.5 million. Due to the indemnity obligation contained in Dr. Kaspar’s restricted stock purchase agreement, the Company was required to reimburse Dr. Kaspar for the taxes he paid following the amendment of Dr. Kaspar’s 2014 personal income tax return. As a result, the Company has concluded that payment of such indemnity is probable as of December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2017.
