Lonesome Oak Acquisition

On November 1, 2019, Marquis entered into a purchase agreement, as amended (as amended, the “LOTC Purchase Agreement”), to acquire the outstanding capital stock of Lonesome Oak Trading Co., Inc. (“Lonesome Oak”).  Pursuant to the LOTC Purchase Agreement, Marquis will acquire from the sole shareholder of Lonesome Oak (the “LOTC Shareholder”) all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Lonesome Oak for $2,000. In addition, following the closing of the transaction, Lonesome Oak will be leasing back from the LOTC Shareholder certain properties owned by affiliates of the LOTC Shareholder that will be used in Lonesome Oak’s operations. Marquis will hold back $1,450 of the purchase price (the “Holdback Amount”) to satisfy claims for indemnity arising out of breaches of certain representations, warranties, and covenants, and certain other enumerated items, if any. In connection with the closing of the transaction, the LOTC Shareholder will enter into an employment agreement with a five-year term and will serve as Lonesome Oak’s Executive Vice President pursuant to the terms thereof. The parties expect that the transaction will close within the Company’s second fiscal quarter, subject to customary closing conditions.  The LOTC Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, and covenants. Subject to certain exceptions, the LOTC Shareholder has agreed to indemnify Marquis for breaches of certain representations, warranties, and covenants, and certain other enumerated items, if any. Indemnification by the LOTC Shareholder for breaches of certain representations and warranties is generally limited to the Holdback Amount. The LOTC Purchase Agreement contains a three-year non-competition covenant and non-solicitation covenant that apply to the LOTC Shareholder. The transaction closed on January 31, 2020. 


In March 2020, there was a global outbreak of COVID-19 (CoronaVirus) that has resulted in changes in global supply of certain products.  The pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on the U.S. economy as federal, state, and local governments react to this public health crisis, which has created significant uncertainties. These uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the potential adverse effect of the pandemic on the economy, our supply chain partners, our employees and customers, customer sentiment in general, and traffic within shopping centers, and, where applicable, malls, containing our stores.  As the pandemic continues to grow, consumer fear about becoming ill with the virus and recommendations and/or mandates from federal, state, and local authorities to avoid large gatherings of people or self-quarantine are continuing to increase, which has already affected, and may continue to affect, traffic to our stores. As of March 31, 2020, Vintage Stock has closed all of its retail locations in response to the crisis. Vintage expects to reopen its retail locations as soon as possible while maintaining compliance with government mandates. We are unable to predict when stores will reopen or if additional periods of store closures will be needed or mandated. Continued impacts of the pandemic could materially adversely affect our near-term and long-term revenues, earnings, liquidity, and cash flows, and may require significant actions in response, including but not limited to, employee furloughs, reduced store hours, store closings, expense reductions or discounting of pricing of our products, all in an effort to mitigate such impacts. The extent of the impact of the pandemic on our business and financial results will depend largely on future developments, including the duration of the spread of the outbreak within the U.S., the impact on capital and financial markets and the related impact on consumer confidence and spending, all of which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted. This situation is changing rapidly, and additional impacts may arise that we are not aware of currently.

On March 3, 2020, the Company executed a guaranty agreement to Crossroads to induce Crossroads to continue to extend financial accommodations and consent to use of cash collateral to ApplianceSmart.  The amount of the guaranty is $1,200.  The guaranty terminates at such time as ApplianceSmart has paid in full all amounts owed by it to Crossroads.  The Company expects the guaranty to continue in effect until August 2021.

During February 2020, Marquis entered into equipment loan #7 with BofA. Equipment loan #7 is $5,000, secured by equipment. The equipment loan #7 is due February 2027, payable in 83 monthly payments of $58 beginning March 24, 2020, with the final payment of $809, bearing interest at 3.2% per annum.

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, ApplianceSmart closed two additional retail locations.  As of March 31, 2020, ApplianceSmart has one operating retail location in Columbus, Ohio.    

Related party note  

During April 2020, the Company entered into an unsecured revolving line of credit promissory note whereby the ICF agreed to provide the Company with a $1,000 revolving credit facility (the “Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility”). The Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility bears interest at 10.0% per annum and provides for the payment of interest monthly in arrears and matures April 2023.
