IGH Note Receivable


On October 31, 2018, in connection with an option to purchase transaction (see note 4), the Company loaned $5,000,000 pursuant to the IGH Note to IGH. On November 6, 2018, IGH converted to a for-profit corporation. The IGH Note bore interest at the rate of 6% per annum. On March 1, 2020 (the “Initial Payment Date”), all accrued interest was added to the outstanding principal due thereunder and such amount was payable in eight equal quarterly installments, commencing on the Initial Payment Date, together with interest accruing after the Initial Payment Date. The IGH Note was to mature and all outstanding principal, accrued interest and any other amounts due thereunder, was due and payable in full on the third anniversary of the IGH Note. The IGH Note was issued in connection with a loan agreement and security agreement between the Company and IGH, and the IGH Option Agreement between the Company and IGH, among others, in both cases dated as of October 31, 2018, and the other IGH Loan Documents, and was secured by the collateral described in the IGH Loan Documents and by such other collateral as may in the future have been granted to the Company to secure the IGH Note.


By letter dated February 26, 2020, the Company informed IGH that as a result of its breaches of the IGH Option, which remained uncured, an event of default had occurred under the IGH Note. The Company advised IGH that it was electing to cause the IGH Note to bear interest at the default rate of 15% per annum effective February 26, 2020 and to accelerate all amounts due under the Note. This dispute, including whether IGH breached the IGH Option and whether CLS was entitled to collect default interest, was in litigation. During the twelve months ended May 31, 2021, the Company impaired the remaining amounts due under the IGH Note in the amount of $2,498,706, which included $2,497,884 in principal and $822 in accrued interest.


On June 14, 2021, the parties to the IGH lawsuit entered into a confidential settlement agreement to resolve the action and the IGH Settlement Note. Pursuant to the IGH Settlement Note, IGH paid the Company $3,000,000, $500,000 of which was paid on or before June 21, 2021. A second payment of $500,000 was paid on or before July 12, 2021. The remaining $2,000,000 and accrued interest was paid in 12 equal monthly installments beginning on August 12, 2021, pursuant to the terms of the promissory note. During the year ended May 31, 2022, the Company received $2,740,820 under the IGH Settlement Note, which included $2,666,670 in principal and $74,150 in accrued interest. During the three months ended August 31, 2022, the Company received $348,165 under the IGH Settlement Note, which included $333,333 in principal and $14,832 in accrued interest. As of August 31, 2022, the IGH Settlement Note had been repaid in full. The Company records amounts paid under the IGH Settlement Note as gains when payments are received.
