NOTE 17. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
5% Unsecured Subordinated Notes due May 28, 2017
As part of the consideration payable to the stockholders of a formerly acquired entity, the Company issued 5% Unsecured Subordinated Notes due May 28, 2017 (the “Merger Consideration Subordinated Notes”) to members of the Board of Directors and five former employees. Given the below market interest rate for comparably secured notes and the relative illiquidity of the Merger Consideration Subordinated Notes, we discounted the notes at the date of acquisition. We were accreting the discount on the Merger Consideration Subordinated Notes to interest expense using the effective interest method over the term of the Merger Consideration Subordinated Notes. In February 2017, the Board of Directors approved the repayment of the Merger Consideration Subordinated Notes. On February 13, 2017, the entire principal amount and all accrued interest were paid in full. The note discount of $814 was expensed and recognized as interest expense during the year ended December 31, 2017.
Upon the Company’s acquisition of Sierra, on August 21, 2017, the Company paid a fee in the amount of $1,000 to Kanders & Company, Inc. (“Kanders & Company”), which is included in transaction costs, in consideration of the significant support received by the Company from Kanders & Company in sourcing, structuring, performing due diligence and negotiating the acquisition. Mr. Warren B. Kanders, the Company’s Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors and a member of its Board of Directors, is the sole stockholder of Kanders & Company.
The entire disclosure for related party transactions. Examples of related party transactions include transactions between (a) a parent company and its subsidiary; (b) subsidiaries of a common parent; (c) and entity and its principal owners; and (d) affiliates.
