In addition, in connection with the litigation with FFS, OLB has also made a claim against Clear Fork Bank (the "Bank"), the payment processing bank for the Acquired Merchant Portfolio, for damages the Company suffered as a result of it having to cease processing transactions for the merchants underlying the Acquired Merchant Portfolio.
