Operating Lease Obligations
The Company leases office facilities and equipment under non-cancelable operating leases expiring in various years through 2026.
Following is a summary of future minimum payments under initial terms of leases as of:
These amounts do not reflect future escalations for real estate taxes and building operating expenses. Rental expense for continuing operations amounted to $804, $629 and $250, for the years ended March 31, 2016, 2015, and 2014, respectively.
As of March 31, 2016, the Company was obligated for payments under various employment contracts with initial terms greater than one year at March 31, 2016. Annual payments relating to these commitments at March 31, 2016 are as follows:
The Company is not obligated for payments beyond fiscal 2017.
The Company may be involved in various claims, suits, assessments, investigations, and legal proceedings that arise from time to time in the ordinary course of its business, including those identified below. The Company accrues a liability when it is both probable that a liability has been incurred, and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. The Company reviews these accruals at least quarterly, and adjusts them to reflect ongoing negotiations, settlements, rulings, advice of legal counsel, and other relevant information. To the extent new information is obtained and the Company's views on the probable outcomes of claims, suits, assessments, investigations, or legal proceedings change, changes in the Company's accrued liabilities would be recorded in the period in which such determination is made. For some matters, the amount of liability is not probable or the amount cannot be reasonably estimated, and therefore, accruals have not been made. The following is a discussion of the Company's significant legal matters and other proceedings.
Coral Tell Ltd. Matter
On May 30, 2013, a class action suit in the amount of NIS 19,200 or $5,300 was filed in the Tel-Aviv Jaffa District Court against Coral Tell Ltd., an Israeli company that owns and operates a website offering advertisements. Coral Tell Ltd. is currently being sued in a class action lawsuit regarding phone call overages, and has served a third-party notice against Logia and two additional companies for our alleged involvement in facilitating the overages. The suit relates to a service offered by the Coral Tell website, enabling advertisers to display a virtual cellular number in the advertisement instead of their real cellular number. The plaintiff claims that calls were charged for the connection time between two segments of the call, instead of the second segment alone; that the caller was charged even if the advertiser did not answer the call (as the charge began upon initiation of the first segment); and that the caller was charged for text messages sent to the advertiser, although the service did not support delivery of text messages. We have no contractual relationship with this company. We believe the lawsuit is without merit and a finding of liability on our part remote. After conferring with advisors and counsel, management believes that the ultimate liability, if any, in aggregate will not be material to the financial position or results or operations of the Company for any future period.
The Company does not believe there is a probable and estimable claim. Accordingly, the Company has not accrued any liability.
Settlement of Potential Claim
The Company had a disagreement with an investor of the Company regarding their respective rights and obligations to each other regarding certain investments. Although no claims have been made as of March 31, 2015, each of the parties recognizes that the disagreements they have had could, in the future, lead to claims being made and believe it is in their respective best interests to avoid such claims by entering into an agreement whereby the Company has offered to settle the matter in exchange for a certain number of shares of common stock of the Company. A settlement was finalized on July 30, 2015, which resulted in the issuance of 117,000 shares. The Company initially accrued $381 for the settlement of this liability during Q4 fiscal 2015. During Q2 fiscal 2016, the Company settled this liability by issuing the 117,000 with a fair market value of approximately $283, resulting in a net reduction in expense related to the partial reversal of the liability during Q2 fiscal 2016 in the amount of $98.
