Risk is inherent with every business, and we believe that how well a business manages risk can ultimately determine its success. We face a number of risks more fully described in our annual and quarterly filings with the SEC, including risks relating to dependence on clients and suppliers, competition, cybersecurity and data breaches, product development, credit and liquidity, acquisitions and foreign expansion and other business risks. Management is responsible for the day-to-day management of risks we face, while our Board of Directors, as a whole and through its committees, has responsibility for the oversight of risk management. In its risk oversight role, our Board of Directors has the responsibility to satisfy itself that the risk management processes designed and implemented by management are adequate and functioning as designed. The Board of Directors, together with its committees,
provides company-wide oversight of our management and handling of risk. The Technology and Cybersecurity committee has primary responsibility for information technology and cyber risks and efforts taken by the Company to mitigate such risks. At meetings of the Board of Directors and its committees, directors receive regular updates from management regarding risk management. Outside of formal meetings, the Board, its committees and individual Board members have regular access to the executive officers of the Company and are often consulted by management in respect of Company operations.

The amounts reported in this column represent the grant date fair value for these Awards as calculated in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification Topic 718. The assumptions made in calculating the grant date fair value amounts for the Awards issued in the year ended December 31, 2020 are summarized in Note 8 to the Company’s consolidated financial statements included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. At the maximum Awards shares, these values for Mr. Willoughby would be: 2020: $3,079,292; 2019: $0; for Mr. Madden would be: 2020: $1,506,707; 2019: $0; and for Mr. Butler would be: 2020: $2,334,011. The values for the Awards shares included in this column that were subsequently forfeited were as follows: for Mr. Willoughby: 2020: $18,080; 2019: $0; and for Mr. Madden: 2020: $8,315; 2019: $0. The amounts in this column do not necessarily correspond to the actual economic value that may be realized by the Named Executive Officers from the Awards. No such Awards were issued for the year ended December 31, 2019, as there were not enough shares left in the Company’s 2018 Stock and Incentive Plan. The Company issued awards in 2020 to compensate for shares not awarded in 2019.
(4)Represents performance-based cash awards earned under the Plan. No performance-based cash awards were granted in 2019. Mr. Butler was the only Named Executive Officer with performance-based cash awards granted in 2020.
(5)Represents amounts paid in respect of life insurance premiums, automobile allowance and expenses for the personal use of automobile, Company paid healthcare premiums and, for certain individuals, club dues and memberships.
(6)Mr. Butler first became a Named Executive Officer for the 2020 fiscal year and, accordingly, no compensation information with respect to Mr. Butler for 2019 is included.
Salary and Other Benefits
We provide our Named Executive Officers and other employees with a base salary as a component of compensation for services rendered during the year. Additionally, they are provided a variable compensation package that is comprised of short and long term incentive pay. Short-term incentives can be comprised of cash, service-based stock awards, performance-based stock awards or market-based stock awards. Executive officers are eligible to participate in our 401(k) plan and other benefit programs.
2020 Say-on Pay Vote
At our last four annual meetings, a non-binding, advisory resolution approving the compensation paid to our named executive officers, as disclosed in our proxy statement or on Form 10-K/A for each such annual meeting, was approved by more than a majority of our stockholders. In designing an executive compensation program for 2020, the Compensation Committee considered the support previously received by the Company’s stockholders for its historical compensation practices and has used consistent methodologies and practices for making 2020 compensation decisions.
OUTSTANDING EQUITY AWARDS AT 2020 FISCAL YEAR END
The following table sets forth the number of unexercised options and equity incentive plan awards for each Named Executive Officer outstanding as of December 31, 2020.

(1)Awards consist of Performance Share Awards (“Performance Shares”) and Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs” and collectively “the Awards”) at the maximum Awards shares under the Plan. The RSUs are subject to three-year vesting and the Performance Shares are subject to three-year vesting and certain additional criteria, depending upon Award grant, including continued employment, the comparative performance (on an annual and cumulative basis) of the Company’s common stock on Nasdaq as compared to the Russell Micro Cap Index and/or achievement of certain Company or business unit performance goals.
(2)Market value is computed by multiplying the number of Performance Share Awards by $6.73, which was the closing price per share of the Company’s common stock on December 31, 2020, on Nasdaq.
EMPLOYMENT, CHANGE OF CONTROL AND TERMINATION ARRANGEMENTS FOR EXECUTIVES
The Company and each of Mr. Willoughby and Mr. Madden have entered into Change in Control Severance Agreements, as amended. Under these agreements, and in consideration of certain commitments of the officer to continue employment, upon the occurrence of a change in control, all unvested options held by the officer immediately vest and become exercisable. During the two year period following a change in control (whenever occurring), as defined in the applicable agreement, if the employment of the officer is terminated (other than for cause, death, disability or retirement), or if there is a material adverse change in the officer’s responsibilities, compensation or benefits to which the officer does not consent, then, in each case, the officer is entitled to receive from the Company (1) all salary and bonus amounts accrued through the date of termination, (2) a severance payment equal to twice the officer’s salary and bonus amount (which is defined as the greater of (i) the highest annual incentive bonus earned by the executive during the last three completed fiscal years or (ii) the executive’s then target bonus, if any) and (3) continuation for two years of all employee benefits (unless otherwise provided by a subsequent employer). If applicable, the officer is also entitled to receive an additional payment to compensate the officer for any additional excise tax liability arising by reason of the receipt of such severance or bonus payment. A change in control has the meaning provided in Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended (the “Code”) and the regulations thereunder. The agreement terminates upon the voluntary resignation or termination of employment by the officer.
In addition, upon a change in control, certain unvested Performance Shares and all Restricted Stock Units issued to the Named Executive Officers immediately vest and each recipient is entitled to receive an additional payment to compensate the officer for any additional excise tax liability arising by reason of the receipt of such shares.
The Company and each of Mr. Willoughby and Mr. Madden have also entered into Executive Severance Agreements. Under these agreements, and in consideration for, among other things, the agreement by the executive to be bound by a restrictive covenant, in the event of the termination of the employment of the executive other than for cause (including termination following a reduction in the executive’s base salary unless such reduction is part of, and proportionate with, a general reduction in officer compensation), the executive is entitled to a severance payment, based on the executive’s years of service, up to a maximum of twice the executive’s salary and the bonus, if any, that the executive would have received for such fiscal year (based upon the executive’s targeted bonus amount and the Company’s actual results for such fiscal year), payable in monthly installments over a period not to exceed two years (based on the executive’s years of service). In addition, in the event of termination without cause, the executive is entitled during the severance period to a continuation of benefits and to the accelerated vesting of all options then held by the executive, and the executive is considered a continuing employee of the Company for all purposes for which the executive’s status as an employee of the Company would entitle the executive to some benefit, including the vesting of Performance Shares and Restricted Stock Units. The severance payment and benefits are reduced by any compensation or benefits received by the executive from any subsequent employer.
Effective as of December 31, 2008, the Company and Mr. Willoughby and Mr. Madden entered into an amendment to the existing Executive Severance Agreements and Change in Control Severance Agreements between the Company and such persons. The primary purpose of such amendment was to modify such agreements so that they conform to Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code. In addition, the amendment to the Executive Severance Agreement modified the calculation of the severance amount thereunder so that it is based on the highest annual rate of base salary during the 12-month period immediately prior to the qualifying termination.
For purposes of providing quantitative disclosure of the foregoing, assuming that a qualifying triggering event occurred as of December 31, 2020 and assuming the 2018 Stock and Incentive Plan had enough shares to issue Awards in 2019 in a consistent manner as the prior year grants: (i) Mr. Willoughby would have been entitled to receive aggregate cash payments of approximately $1,060,000 (payable over 24 months), other benefits with an estimated value of approximately $65,000, and up to 581,155 shares of the Company’s stock valued at $3,911,173 based on the $6.73 closing price of the Company’s stock on December 31, 2020, (and, in the event of a change in control, an additional amount of up to 32,298 shares of the Company’s stock valued at $217,366 based on the $6.73 closing price of the Company’s stock on December 31, 2020, plus, if applicable, an additional payment to cover any excise tax liability) and (ii) Mr. Madden would have been entitled to receive aggregate cash payments of approximately $764,000 (payable over 24 months), other benefits with an estimated value of approximately $65,000, and up to 290,979 shares of the Company’s stock valued at $1,958,289 based on the $6.73 closing price of the Company’s stock on December 31, 2020 (and, in the event of a change in control, an additional amount of up to 14,846 shares of the Company’s stock valued at $99,914 based on the $6.73 closing price of the Company’s stock on December 31, 2020, plus, if applicable, an additional payment to cover any excise tax liability).
The Company and Mr. Butler entered into an agreement under which, and in consideration for, among other things, the agreement by Mr. Butler to be bound by a restrictive covenant, in the event of the termination of his employment other than for cause (including termination following a reduction in his base salary unless such reduction is part of, and proportionate with, a general reduction in officer compensation), he is entitled to a severance benefit of twelve months of continuation of base salary, Restricted Stock Units and Performance Shares an stock option vesting and employee benefits for the six month period following termination. In addition, upon a change in control or sale of the LiveArea business unit, certain unvested Performance Shares and all unvested
Restricted Stock Units held by Mr. Butler immediately vest and all unvested stock options held by Mr. Butler immediately vest and become exercisable..
For purposes of providing quantitative disclosure of the foregoing, assuming that a qualifying triggering event occurred as of December 31, 2020: Mr. Butler would have been entitled to receive aggregate cash payments of approximately $450,000 (payable over twelve months) and other benefits with an estimated value of approximately $10,000, and continued vesting of 50,000 stock options valued at $86,500 based on the $6.73 closing price of the Company's stock on December 31, 2020 (and, in the event of a change in control or sale of the LiveArea business unit, an additional amount of up to 125,000 shares of the Company’s stock valued at $841,250 and additional accelerated vesting of 100,000 stock options valued at $173,000 based on the $6.73 closing price of the Company’s stock on December 31, 2020).

(8)Mr. Nagakura is eligible to participate in the Company’s compensation programs for non-employee Directors; however as a representative of TCI Mr. Nagakura is not permitted to receive remuneration for serving as a director of the Company. Accordingly, Mr. Nagakura received no compensation as a Director during 2020.
(9)Mr. Beatson received $7,500 in additional compensation for the value of certain options that expired.
For 2020, each non-employee Director received a quarterly retainer (“Retainer”) equal to $30,000. Each quarterly Retainer is effected through the issuance of Deferred Stock Units (each, a “DSU”) under the Plan. Each DSU represents the right to receive a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Retainer divided by the closing price of the Common Stock immediately preceding the DSU grant date. Shares are not issuable under the DSU until the Director no longer serves on the Board. In addition, the Chairman of the Board and the chairpersons of the Audit, Compensation and Technology and Cybersecurity committees are entitled to receive an annual cash payment of $7,500.
Directors who are also employees of the Company or any of its subsidiaries receive no remuneration for serving as directors or Committee members.

Options, stock awards and deferred stock units held by other stockholders, however, are disregarded in the calculation of beneficial ownership. Therefore, the denominator used in calculating beneficial ownership among our stockholders may differ.

Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence
The Board of Directors evaluate the independence of each director in accordance with applicable laws and regulations and the Nasdaq Listing Rules. The Board of Directors consider all relevant facts and circumstances in making an independence determination, including among other things, making an affirmative determination that the director has no material relationship with the Company directly or as an officer, stockholder, or partner of an entity that has a material relationship with the Company. The Board of Directors has determined that, other than Mr. Willoughby, each director, and each member of each committee of the Board of Directors, is independent within the meaning of applicable SEC rules and Nasdaq Listing Rules. The independent directors are able to and generally meet in executive session without the Company’s management at each regularly scheduled Board meeting.
Relationships with Related Persons
We have entered into, and intend to enter into, separate indemnification agreements with our directors and certain qualifying officers, in addition to the indemnification provided for in our Amended and Restated Bylaws. These agreements, among other things, require us to indemnify our directors and officers for certain expenses, including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines and settlement amounts incurred by a director or officer or any other company to which the director or officer provides services at our request. We believe that these bylaw provisions and indemnification agreements are necessary to attract and retain qualified persons as directors and officers.
Purchase Agreement with transcosmos, inc.
In 2013 we entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with transcosmos inc., a Japanese business processing outsourcing company (“TCI”), pursuant to which the Company sold shares of the Company’s common stock to TCI in a private placement transaction. TCI is currently the Company’s largest shareholder. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to nominate a representative of TCI to the Company’s board of directors, or a replacement designated by TCI, so long as TCI owns 10% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock. Mr. Nagakura currently serves as the director designated by TCI. The Purchase Agreement also provides TCI with certain preemptive rights and subjects TCI to certain share transfer restrictions and standstill provisions.
We entered into various employment related agreements and compensatory arrangements with our executive officers and directors that provide for compensatory and certain severance and change of control benefits. For a description of these see sections above in Item 11 – Executive Compensation tilted “Employment, Change of Control and Termination Arrangements for Executives” and “Director Compensation.”

Policy on Audit Committee Pre-Approval of Audit and Permissible Non Audit Services of Independent Registered Public Accountants
The Audit Committee pre-approves all audit and permissible non-audit services provided by the Company’s independent auditors. These services may include audit services, audit related services, tax and other services. Pre-approval is generally provided for up to one year, and any pre-approval is detailed as to the particular service or category of services and is generally subject to a specific budget. The independent auditors and management are required to periodically report to the Audit Committee regarding the extent of services provided by the independent auditors in accordance with this pre-approval and the fees for the services performed to date. The Audit Committee may also pre-approve particular services on a case by case basis.
