Administration, description   The administrators engaged a third-party to market Legacy UK's business and assets for sale to one or more third parties. On November 26, 2019, Legacy UK's assets and deferred revenues sold for £300 thousand (British pounds) to Mayflower Alliance LTD. We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of Legacy UK. The Administrator has asserted claims against two of our other UK subsidiaries, LEAI Property Development UK Ltd. and LEAI Property Investment UK Ltd., in an aggregate amount totaling £622,166. We are currently negotiating a resolution of these claims, but there can be no assurances that an agreement will be reached or what the impact that any such agreement will have on our financial performance. Further details regarding the resolution of other claims and liabilities may not be known for several months. Because there are a number of intercompany relationships between the Company and Legacy UK, the financial impact of any future claims in relation to the administration and disposition of Legacy UK, outside of those included in the discontinued operations of Legacy UK (see Note 4 "Discontinued Operations"), is unknown to us at this time, as is the timing and other conditions and effects of the administrative process.      
Winding-Up Petition, description A Winding-Up Petition, CR-2020-001958, was filed in the High Court of Justice, Business and Property Courts of England and Wales (the "Court") against one of our UK subsidiaries, Elite Legacy Education UK Ltd. ("ELE UK"), by one its creditors ("Petitioner") pursuant to which the Petitioner was claiming a debt of £461,459.70 plus late payment interest and statutory compensation was due and owing. The Petitioner sought an order from the Court to wind up the affairs of ELE UK under the UK Insolvency Act of 1986. ELE UK has disputed the claim of the Petitioner and on June 11, 2020, ELE UK obtained a court order vacating the hearing on the Petition originally set for June 24, 2020. On July 24, 2020, the Court entered an order finding that there was a genuine dispute on substantial grounds with respect to £392,761.70 of the Petitioner's claim, and that only £68,698 plus late payment interest and statutory compensation was due and owing. The Court further restrained the Petitioner from advertising its Winding-Up Petition until August 14, 2020 and, provided, ELEUK pays the Petitioner the sums awarded under the Court's order, plus late payment interest and statutory compensation on or before August 14, 2020, the Petitioner's Winding-Up Petition would be dismissed.
