Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On October 6, 2017, our legal counsel received a letter of resignation from the legal counsel of Steven Nickolas notifying the resignation of Mr. Nickolas from our board of directors effective immediately. The letter stated that recent management decisions have made it clear to Mr. Nickolas that our company and its management will continue to operate the company’s business as they see fit and ignore Mr. Nickolas’s constructive feedback and input. A copy of Mr. Nickolas’s letter is attached to this current report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 17.1.

We believe that Mr. Nickolas resigned because our board of directors decided not to nominate him for re-election at the next annual meeting of our stockholders.

Our management disagrees with Mr. Nickolas’ contentions. Pursuant to Item 5.02(a)(3) of Form 8-K, this current report on Form 8-K has been provided to Mr. Nickolas. We intend to file any letter provided by Mr. Nickolas in relation thereto by amendment to this current report on Form 8-K within two business days after we receive it.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
