The company believes Palisades was in possession of information material to the transaction that was not disclosed at the time.

ThreeD subsequently commenced legal action on March 10, 2020, against Collin Kettell, Palisades and New Found claiming rescission of the transaction or, in the alternative, damages of $16 million or the value of the shares.
