As previously disclosed by us, in April 2013, it was determined that Gary Rabin, our then-Chief Executive Officer, failed to report 27 transactions in which Mr. Rabin sold shares of our common stock that took place between February 7, 2011 and January 10, 2013. Mr. Rabin filed a Form 4 under Section 16 of the Exchange Act on April 15, 2013 reporting the previously unreported sale transactions and correcting the total number of shares of our common stock that Mr. Rabin owned as of the date of filing of the Form 4. Our board of directors initiated an investigation into this matter upon becoming aware of it. We were advised by the SEC that it was investigating this matter, and we received and responded to requests for additional information from the SEC relating to such transactions and our procedures regarding Section 16 filings. We cooperated with the SEC's investigation and supplied information to the SEC in response to its information requests. We have discussed a reasonable resolution of the matter with the SEC on behalf of us, and we believe this matter is nearly resolved, although there can be no assurance that the matter will be resolved until such time as a resolution is completed. The Company has recorded an accrual of $375,000 as of December 31, 2013, related to the investigation. We entered a separation agreement with Mr. Rabin, as previously disclosed in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on January 22, 2014. In connection with this investigation, Mr. Rabin received a Wells notice from the SEC in January 2014, which indicates that the SEC may bring a civil action against Mr. Rabin, and gave Mr. Rabin an opportunity to provide the SEC with information as to why such action should not be brought.
