In addition, the Company has classified the assets and liabilities of the discontinued divisions as current and noncurrent assets and liabilities held for sale in the consolidated balance sheets for all periods presented.

In connection with the asset purchase agreement, we entered into separation and release agreements with all of the officers and employees of our Strategos division pursuant to which they agreed to forgo approximately $1.4 million in bonuses we owed them (and which bonuses had previously been accrued as an expense in our financial statements) in exchange for $150,000. Finally, as part of the transaction, we also entered into a technology license agreement with Strategos, Inc., a newly formed company that will carry on the business formerly conducted by our Strategos division, pursuant to which we agreed to license Strategos, Inc. certain technology and intellectual property rights relating to our Strategos division, including the use of the name “Strategos,” for royalty payments equal to 12.5% of the professional fee revenue earned by Strategos, Inc. in excess of $10 million during the period from October 2, 2012 to December 31, 2015.
