There are no legal proceedings pending or threatened against us, and we are unaware of any governmental authority initiating a proceeding against us, except as follow:
During 2017, a Complaint was filed with the United States District Court, Southern District of New York by Steven Safran as Plaintiff against the Company and Douglas Beplate, its CEO, as Defendant. This court case was transferred to the United States District Court in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mr. Safran is seeking damages and monies allegedly owed pursuant to an employment agreement and allegedly unpaid loans of $245,824 provided to Defendants. The Company has denied Plaintiff’s allegations and intends to vigorously defend said lawsuit. The parties have held various depositions and the Company has a motion to dismiss which is pending with the court. No accrual has been recorded related to this litigation.
In July 2015, the Company entered into a consulting agreement retaining the services of Maxim Group LLC. An amended agreement was executed in January 2018. A total of 4 million shares of common stock were issued to Maxim in exchange for its obligation to perform certain advisory and other services. In the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company notified Maxim of its intent to file for arbitration pursuant to the consulting agreement. Maxim, without providing a similar notice to the Company, immediately filed a complaint with FINRA seeking release of a restrictive legend from a Company stock certificate in the amount of 500,000 shares. The Company filed an affirmative defense that the required notice of arbitration was not provided to the Company prior to filing. The Company also filed a counterclaim for breach of contract seeking restitution of the original 4 million shares issued to Maxim and the Company filed several counterclaims alleging material misrepresentations by Maxim to various entities. The Company intends to vigorously defend Maxim’s complaint and to obtain relief pursuant to its counterclaims. Currently, the Company and Maxim have a scheduled arbitration with FINRA which will be held in September 2019.
Philip Forman, who served in positions as Chairman, a director, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Advisor at various time between 2011 and October 2015, has filed a lawsuit against the Company and our Chief Executive Officer, Douglas Beplate, in the United States District Court of the District of Nevada.. The claimant is claiming, among other things, that: the June 25, 2015 Amendment to his November 10, 2014 Employment Agreement with the Company, which terminated the Employment Agreement on October 1, 2015, is not valid because of lack of consideration; that a July 22, 2015 Stock Purchase Agreement pursuant to which the claimant sold Company shares issued to him under the Amendment to a third a party is unenforceable (despite the fact that all payment for the shares under the Stock Purchase Agreement was made); that the plaintiff’s 2014 Employment Agreement is enforceable and that he is entitled to cash and stock compensation under that Employment Agreement (without giving regard to the Amendment); that if the Amendment is enforceable, he is entitled to the shares issued under the Amendment (without mention that those shares were sold to a third party under the Stock Purchase Agreement described above); and that the Company and Mr. Beplate defrauded the plaintiff relating to the foregoing. The plaintiff is seeking declaratory judgment regarding the parties’ relative rights under the Employment Agreement, the Amendment and the Stock Purchase Agreement; money damages of no less than $2,795,000; and punitive damages of $8,280,000. The Company believes that it has meritorious defenses to the matters claimed as well as counterclaims against the claimant. We plan to vigorously respond to the claims and pursue our remedies. We cannot predict the outcome with certainty.
In the Southern District of New York, FSR Inc commenced a lawsuit in 2018 against Korsair Holdings A.G. seeking among other claims for relief, rescission of the transfer of 3,050,000 shares of United Health Products that FSR sold to Korsair in 2011. Third-Party Plaintiff, JEC Consulting Associates, LLC as Liquidator of LeadDog Capital L.P., Intervenor (“Intervenor”) in the above matter, filed a third-party complaint against United Health Products, and Douglas K. Beplate (“Beplate”) alleging among other things that the Company and Mr. Beplate refused to have the Rule 144 restrictive legend removed from the Korsair certificate held by JEC, and concomitantly fraudulently deprive JEC as Liquidator of LeadDog of the ability to sell the Shares in the open market, knowingly, intentionally and directly causing economic harm to LeadDog Capital L.P. Intervenor as Third Party Plaintiff further alleges that the Company and Mr. Beplate as Third-Party Defendants are not only monetarily liable to Third-Party Plaintiff for compensatory damages of $2,500,000but should be made to pay exemplary damages in an amount determined by the Court, but not less than an equal amount - $2,500,000. Third-Party Plaintiff demands judgment for the above referenced amounts and for the Court to also declare that the 3,050,000 shares are free trading; that Third-Party Plaintiff’s rights to 2.5 million of the Shares are superior to the claims of Plaintiff FSR; that Plaintiff FSR has no claim to 2.5 million of the 3,050,000 Shares reflected by the Korsair certificate; that the Company and Mr. Beplate are to instruct its current transfer agent to remove the restrictive legend on the Korsair certificate for the Shares; and an order directing the Company and Mr. Beplate to instruct the Company’s transfer agent to exchange the Korsair certificate for new free-trading, unrestricted certificates. As of the filing date of this Form 10-Q, the Company and Mr. Beplate have not been served with the summons and complaint, but upon service will vigorously defend this lawsuit. Further, the Company believes that it had legal right to decline to instruct the transfer agent to remove the restrictive legend from the Korsair Shares where the ownership of the aforementioned shares have been in dispute and the Korsair shares have not been submitted for transfer to its transfer agent in proper form under the uniform commercial code.
