Item 8.01.  Other Events.

 

On October 7, 2020, Live Ventures Incorporated (the “Company”) received a “Wells Notice” from the Staff of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) relating to the Company’s previously-disclosed SEC investigation.  A Wells Notice is neither a formal charge of wrongdoing nor a final determination that the recipient has violated any law. The Wells Notice informed the Company that the SEC Staff has made a preliminary determination to recommend that the SEC file an enforcement action against the Company that would allege certain violations of the federal securities laws. The Company maintains that its actions were appropriate, has engaged Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP to defend itself, and intends to vigorously defend against any and all allegations brought forth.
