Legal Proceedings — On April 4, 2017, Randolph Pain Relief and Wellness Center (“RPRWC”) filed an arbitration demand with the American Arbitration Association (the “Arbitration”) seeking to arbitrate claims against CareCloud, Inc. (“CareCloud”) and MTBC Acquisition Corp. (“MAC”). The claims relate solely to services provided by Millennium Practice Management Associates, Inc. (“MPMA”), a subsidiary of MediGain, LLC, pursuant to a billing services agreement that contains an arbitration provision. CareCloud and MAC jointly moved in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division, Somerset County (the “Chancery Court”) to enjoin the Arbitration on the grounds that neither were a party to the billing services agreement. On May 30, 2018, the Chancery Court denied that motion and CareCloud and MAC appealed. The Chancery Court ordered the Arbitration stayed pending the appeal.


On April 23, 2019, the Appellate Division reversed the Chancery Court’s ruling that CareCloud is required to participate in the Arbitration and remanded the case for further proceedings before the Chancery Court on that issue. The Appellate Division upheld the Chancery Court’s ruling that MAC was required to participate in the Arbitration. The parties completed discovery in the remanded matter, and both CareCloud and RPRWC filed cross-motions for summary judgement in their favor. On February 6, 2020, the Chancery Court denied RPRWC’s motion for summary judgment and granted CareCloud’s motion for summary judgment, holding that CareCloud cannot be compelled to participate in the Arbitration. RPRWC has informed CareCloud that it does not intend to appeal the Chancery Court’s ruling and that it intends to move forward solely against MAC in the Arbitration. On March 25, 2020, the Chancery Court lifted the stay of arbitration relative to RPRWC and MAC.


Due to conflicting information provided by RPRWC, it is unclear what the extent of the claimed damages are in this matter which at this time appear to be entirely speculative. According to its arbitration demand, RPRWC seeks compensatory damages of $6.6 million, plus costs, for MPMA’s alleged breach of the billing services agreement. On June 12, 2020, in response to a directive from the arbitrator, RPRWC disclosed a statement of damages to MAC in which it increased its alleged damages from $6.6 million and costs to $20 million and costs. On July 24, 2020, RPRWC disclosed a declaration to MAC, in which RPRWC estimates its damages to be approximately $11 million plus costs. MAC intends to vigorously defend against RPRWC’s claims. If RPRWC is successful in the Arbitration, CareCloud and MAC anticipate the award would be substantially less than the amount claimed.
