Item 8.01 Other Events.












In
its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019
(“2019 Form 10-K”), Liberated Syndication Inc. (the
“Company”) disclosed that it had a profit-sharing plan
(the “Plan”) for the benefit of the employees of the
Company, in which “profit sharing contributions” were
made at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors
(the “Board”). The Company has since determined that
such Plan involved a practice operated by the Company’s
management, in which contributions were made to the 401(k) plans of
certain Company employees without prior Board approval. For the
years ended December 31, 2020, 2019 and 2018, the Company made
contributions to the Plan of $121,566, $111,431 and $100,000,
respectively.









For
the years ended December 31, 2020, 2019 and 2018, (i) Mr.
Christopher Spencer, the Company’s former Chief Executive
Officer, received contributions made by the Plan to his 401(k) plan
of $21,000, $24,750 and $19,513, respectively; and (ii) Mr. John
Busshaus, the Company’s former Chief Financial Officer,
received contributions made by the Plan to his 401(k) plan of $0,
$24,750 and $19,513, respectively. Ms. Laurie Sims, the
Company’s current President and Chief Operating Officer,
received contributions made by the Plan to her 401(k) plan
including a payment of $21,000 for the year ended December 31,
2020. The amounts for Mr. Spencer and Mr. Busshaus were
inadvertently omitted from the executive compensation reported for
Mr. Spencer and Mr. Busshaus in the Company’s proxy statement
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 15,
2020 as well as in the 2019 Form 10-K and the Annual Report on Form
10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. Ms. Sims was not a named
executive officer (as defined in Item 402 of Regulation S-K) of the
Company for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018. Going
forward, the Company intends to adopt a written version of the Plan
and obtain Board approval for any future awards made under the
Plan.
