Note 14 – Related-Party Transactions

Beginning in November 2003, the Company leased its corporate headquarters and primary warehouse from Nia Chloe, LLC (“Nia Chloe”), a member of which, Sol Khazani, is one of our board of directors. Lease payments and expenses associated with this related party arrangement totaled $374,000, $374,000 and $389,000 for fiscal year 2012, 2011 and 2010, respectively. The Company has evaluated its relationship with Nia Chloe with regard to ASC 810 Consolidation (“ASC 810”). The Company has determined that Nia Chloe does not meet the criteria for consolidation under ASC 810 and therefore this entity is not consolidated in the Company’s financial statements.

The Company has entered into indemnification agreements with the Company’s directors and executive officers. These agreements require the Company to indemnify these individuals to the fullest extent permitted under law against liabilities that may arise by reason of their service to the Company, and to advance expenses incurred as a result of any proceeding against them as to which they could be indemnified. The Company also intends to enter into indemnification agreements with the Company’s future directors and executive officers.
