In September 2012, the Company initiated litigation against a former client (the Defendant) for failure to pay the Companys invoices for services rendered under its Master License and Services Agreement. The complaint was filed in Superior Court of California, San Diego County. The litigation seeks to recover $67,795 in services and interest penalties. As of March 31, 2013, negotiations to settle the litigation with the Defendant have ceased, and the Company is seeking to obtain a judgment against the Defendant.
Operating Lease and Lease Exit Obligation
The Company has a lease agreement for 6,730 square feet, as amended, for its office facilities in Chandler Arizona through December 2015. Monthly rental payments, excluding common area maintenance charges, are $11,557 in 2013, $11,958 in 2014 and $12,357 in 2015.

The Company had a lease agreement for its office facilities in San Diego, California through September 2012. Upon signing a lease agreement for the facility in Chandler, the Company determined it no longer needed the San Diego facility. The property was vacated in November 2011 and returned to the owner. As of March 31, 2013, the Company has a Lease Exit Obligation which consists of unpaid rent totaling $36,615 for the period December 2011 through September 2012. The Company expects no further charges in relation to this lease exit obligation, aside from actual common area maintenance charges reconciled against the estimate.
Rent expense for both the San Diego, California, and Chandler, Arizona facilities (including related common area maintenance charges and lease abandonment charges) was $42,795 and $49,289, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012.

The acquired assets will include, but not be limited to, all application software, URLs, websites, trademarks, brands, customers and customer lists.

The original Letter of Intent was to expire January 15, 2013. In January 2013, an amendment was executed to the Letter of Intent to acquire the assets of Sequence, LLC, extending the expiration date to March 15, 2013. As of March 31, 2013, the Letter of Intent has expired, but the parties to the Letter of Intent are moving forward with the acquisition transaction.
In March 2013, the Company paid $195,630 of the required $300,000 cash payment to the Seller, and recorded this payment as an acquisition deposit in current assets. The Company completed the acquisition transaction in May 2013, see Note 12.
