Item 1.03. Bankruptcy or Receivership
Legacy Education Alliance, Inc. (the “Company”), previously disclosed in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, on October 28, 2019, that an Application for Administration was filed in the High Court of Justice, Business and Property Courts of England and Wales (the “English Court”). The four creditors of Legacy Education Alliance International Ltd. (“Legacy UK”), one of the Company’s UK subsidiaries, sought an Administration Order with respect to the business and affairs of Legacy UK and the appointment of an administrator, among other things. On November 15, 2019, the creditors obtained an Administration Order from the English Court. Under the terms of the Administration Order, two individuals have been appointed as administrators of Legacy UK and will manage Legacy UK and operate its affairs, business and property under the jurisdiction of the English Court.
The administrators have engaged a third-party to market Legacy UK’s business and assets for sale to one or more third parties. The deadline for potential purchasers to submit their bids to third-party is 17:00 (GMT) on Friday, November 22, 2019. As we reported in our Form 10-Q, the Company reported consolidated net income of $1.3 million as of September 30, 2019. The activities of Legacy UK contributed a $1 million loss during that period. Because there are a number of intercompany relationships between the Company and Legacy UK, the economic effect of the disposition of Legacy UK is unknown at this time, as is the timing and other conditions and effects of the administrative process. When there is an agreement for the disposition of Legacy UK’s business or assets, the Company will provide another update.
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.
