Item 1.03. Bankruptcy or Receivership
As previously disclosed, on October 28, 2019, four creditors of Legacy Education Alliance International Ltd. (“Legacy UK”), one of the Company’s UK subsidiaries, obtained an order from the High Court of Justice, Business and Property Courts of England and Wales (the “English Court”) with respect to the business and affairs of Legacy UK. Pursuant to the previously disclosed Administration Order of November 15, 2019, from the English Court, the two individuals appointed as administrators engaged a third-party to market Legacy UK’s business and assets for sale to one or more third parties. The Company has been informed that a sale has occurred but other than the name of the purchaser, Mayflower Alliance Ltd., has not been provided any details of the transaction. U.K. counsel has advised the Company that further details, including the sale price, assets sold, the status of claims and liabilities, and other information regarding the transaction may not be forthcoming for several months. Accordingly, management is unable to evaluate the operational and financial impact and ramifications of the transaction on the Company at this time. The Company is considering its alternatives for future operations in the United Kingdom and is continuing to conduct business outside the United States through its other foreign subsidiaries in Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, and South Africa.
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.
