NOTE 11. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Concentration of risk. We are exposed to risks associated with clients who represent a significant portion of total revenues. For the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively, we had the following client revenue concentration:
Legal proceedings. In the ordinary course of conducting our business, we are, from time to time, involved in various legal proceedings, administrative proceedings, regulatory government investigations and other matters, including those in which we are a plaintiff or defendant, that are complex in nature and have outcomes that are difficult to predict. An unexpected adverse judgment in any pending litigation could cause a material impact on our business operations, intellectual property, results of operations or financial position. Unless otherwise expressly stated, we believe costs associated with litigation will not have a material impact on our financial position or liquidity but may be material to the results of operations in any given period.
On May 6, 2019, we redeemed all 23,271,667 shares of our common stock held by Triangulum Partners, LLC (“Triangulum”), an entity controlled by Robert B. Saucier, Galaxy Gaming's founder, and, prior to the redemption, the holder of a majority of our outstanding common stock. The redemption of Triangulum’s shares was given effect pursuant to our Articles of Incorporation (the “Articles”), which expressly provide that if certain events occur in relation to a stockholder that is required to undergo a gaming suitability review or similar investigative process, we have the option to purchase all or any part of such stockholder’s shares at a price per share that is equal to the average closing share price over the thirty calendar days preceding the purchase. The average closing share price over the thirty calendar days preceding the redemption was $1.68 per share.
As consideration for the redemption, we issued a promissory note payable to Triangulum in the face amount of $39,096,401 (the “Triangulum Promissory Note”). The Triangulum Promissory Note has no mandatory amortization, matures on May 5, 2029, and bears interest at a rate of 2% per annum, with accrued interest payable annually in arrears. It is unsecured and is subordinated to our existing and future indebtedness in accordance with its terms. We may prepay principal and any accrued interest in full or in part at any time.
In relation to the redemption of the Triangulum shares, on May 6, 2019, we filed a lawsuit against Triangulum and Robert Saucier seeking (i) a declaratory judgment that we acted lawfully and in full compliance with the Articles when we redeemed the Triangulum shares and (ii) certain remedies for breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract by Triangulum and its Managing Member, Mr. Saucier (the “Triangulum Lawsuit”). The suit alleges that the redemption and the other relief sought by us are appropriate and in accordance with our Articles of Incorporation. (Galaxy Gaming, Inc. v. Triangulum Partners, LLC, Robert B. Saucier, et al, Clark County, Nevada district court (Case No. A-19-794293-B)). The defendants to that lawsuit responded to the complaint, and Triangulum filed counterclaims based on a theory of wrongful redemption by us. The defendants also filed a Motion for Preliminary Injunction seeking the redeemed shares be held in a constructive trust. On July 11, 2019, the Court denied the Defendants’ Motion for Preliminary Injunction and all related relief. Thereafter, Triangulum filed amended counterclaims. We moved to dismiss the counterclaims on a number of legal grounds and will respond as and when appropriate.
On May 31, 2019 and June 6, 2019 respectively, Derek Webb and Hannah O’Donnell together filed a complaint and a related Motion for Order Granting Request to Compel an Annual Meeting, or in the Alternative for a Writ of Mandamus and Injunctive Relief (the “Motion”). The Motion sought the Court to compel us to hold an Annual Shareholder’s Meeting in 2019 and also sought related relief: that we not issue shares or redeem any shares or amend its Bylaws in any manner that could affect the obligation to hold the meeting or elect directors at the meeting. Webb and O’Donnell later withdrew their request that we not redeem any shares prior to the annual meeting. On June 6, 2019, we notified the public of the holding of an Annual Meeting to take place on August 28, 2019 for shareholders of record of July 17, 2019. During a hearing held on July 11, 2019, the Court denied Webb and O’Donnell’s Motion and all related relief.
