Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions and Director Independence.

Related Party Transactions

The Audit Committee is responsible for reviewing and approving all transactions between the Company and any related party pursuant to the Audit Committee's charter. Except as described below, the Company was not a participant in any transaction since the beginning of the 2022 fiscal year in which any related person had a direct or indirect material interest and in which the amount involved exceeded the lesser of $120,000 or 1% of the average of the Company's total assets at the end of each of the Company's two prior fiscal years, and no such transactions are currently proposed.

On January 5, 2021, the members of the Board of Directors of TSR other than Robert Fitzgerald approved providing a waiver to QAR Industries, Inc. for its contemplated acquisition of shares owned by Fintech Consulting LLC under the Company's prior Amended and Restated Rights Agreement so that a distribution date would not occur as a result of the acquisition. QAR Industries, Inc. and Fintech Consulting LLC were both principal stockholders of the Company, each owning more than 5% of the Company's outstanding common stock prior to the consummation of the acquisition. Robert Fitzgerald is the President and majority shareholder of QAR Industries, Inc. The other directors of the Company are not affiliated with QAR Industries, Inc.

On February 3, 2021, the acquisition was completed and QAR Industries, Inc. purchased 348,414 shares of TSR common stock from Fintech Consulting LLC at a price of $7.25 per share. At the same time, Bradley M. Tirpak, Chairman of TSR, purchased 27,586 shares of TSR common stock from Fintech Consulting LLC at a price of $7.25 per share.

On December 1, 2021, Fintech Consulting LLC filed a complaint against the Company in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, related to the foregoing transaction. The named Defendants in the complaint are the Company, QAR Industries, Inc., Robert E. Fitzgerald, a director and a shareholder of QAR Industries, Inc., and Bradley Tirpak. The complaint purports to assert claims against the Defendants under state law and Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act in connection with a Share Purchase Agreement, dated January 31, 2021, by and between the Plaintiff, as the seller of shares of TSR's common stock, and QAR Industries, Inc. and Mr. Tirpak, as the purchasers of such shares (the "SPA"). The plaintiff seeks (i) judgment declaring the transactions represented by the SPA null and avoid and returning the shares; (ii) judgment cancelling the SPA and returning the shares in exchange for return of the purchase price; (iii) judgement unwinding the transaction; (iv) compensatory damages; (v) punitive damages; (vi) pre-judgment interest; (vii) costs of suit including attorneys' fees; and (viii) such other relief as the Court may find appropriate. See the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on December 21, 2021 for more information. The Company believes the action described above to be without merit and intends to vigorously defend its interests. However, the Company may incur significant additional legal expenses as it pursues a vigorous defense against this action

On April 1, 2020, the Company entered into a binding term sheet ("Term Sheet") with Zeff Capital, L.P. ("Zeff") pursuant to which it agreed to pay Zeff an amount of $900,000 over a period of three years in cash or cash and stock in settlement of expenses incurred by Zeff during its solicitations in 2018 and 2019 in connection with the annual meetings of the Company, the costs incurred in connection with the litigation initiated by and against the Company as well as negotiation, execution and enforcement of the Settlement and Release Agreement. In exchange for certain mutual releases, the Term Sheet calls for a cash payment of $300,000 on June 30, 2021, a second cash payment of $300,000 on June 30, 2022 and a third payment of $300,000 also on June 30, 2022, which can be paid in cash or common stock at the Company's option. There is no interest due on these payments. The $300,000 payment due on June 30, 2021 was paid by the due date. The agreement also has protections to defer such payment dates so that the debt covenants with the Company's lender are not breached. On August 13, 2020, the Company, Zeff, Zeff Holding Company, LLC and Daniel Zeff entered into a settlement agreement to reflect these terms. Any installment payment which is deferred as permitted above will accrue interest at the prime rate plus 3.75%, and Zeff shall thereby have the option to convert such deferred amounts (plus accrued interest if any) into shares of the Company's stock. The Company accrued $818,000, the estimated present value of these payments using an effective interest rate of 5%, in the quarter ended February 29, 2020, as the events relating to the expense occurred prior to such date. The two cash payments of $300,000 each were made by June 30, 2022 in full satisfaction of the settlement.
