The Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, (the “Annual Report”) included the Company’s conclusion that, factors evaluated by the Company, including historical losses and negative cash flows from operations, government and industry-imposed travel restrictions in the aviation and maritime industries the Company services, ability to maintain and meet debt covenants in future periods, and the Company’s ability to satisfy existing debt obligations and paydown past due accounts payable over the next year, raised substantial doubt as to the Company’ ability to continue as a going concern for a period within 12 months following May 15, 2020. In the Annual Report, the Company’s independent auditors also included a “going concern” explanatory paragraph in their report as of and for the year ended December 31, 2019. As a result, the Company was required to seek covenant amendments from its lenders as well as temporary deferral of principal and interest payments. Please refer to Note 2.
