Note 6 - Commitments and Contingencies




The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant worldwide uncertainty, volatility and economic disruption. The extent to which COVID-19 will adversely impact the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations is dependent upon numerous factors, many of which are highly uncertain, rapidly changing and uncontrollable. These factors include, but are not limited to: (i) the duration and scope of the pandemic; (ii) governmental, business and individual actions that have been and continue to be taken in response to the pandemic, including travel restrictions, quarantines, social distancing, work-from-home and shelter-in-place orders and shut-downs; (iii) the impact on U.S. and global economies and the timing and rate of economic recovery; (iv) potential adverse effects on the financial markets and access to capital; (v) potential goodwill or other impairment charges; (vi) increased cybersecurity risks as a result of pervasive remote working conditions; and (vii) the Company’s ability to effectively carry out its operations due to any adverse impacts on the health and safety of its employees and their families.


Under NYS Executive Order 202.6, “Essential Business,” DSC is an “Essential Business” based on the following in the Executive order number 2: Essential infrastructure including telecommunications and data centers; and, number 12: Vendors that provide essential services or products, including logistics and technology support. Further, as a result of the pandemic, all employees, including the Company’s specialized technical staff, are working remotely or in a virtual environment. DSC always maintains the ability for team members to work virtually and the Company is on a hybrid schedule with team members. The significant increase in remote working, particularly for an extended period of time, could exacerbate certain risks to the Company’s business, including an increased risk of cybersecurity events and improper dissemination of personal or confidential information, though the Company does not believe these circumstances have, or will, materially adversely impact its internal controls or financial reporting systems. If the COVID-19 pandemic should worsen, the Company may experience disruptions to our business including, but not limited to: equipment, its workforce, or to its business relationships with other third parties. The extent to which COVID-19 impacts the Company’s operations or those of its third-party partners will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the duration of the outbreak, new information that may emerge concerning the severity of COVID-19 and the actions to contain COVID-19 or treat its impact, among others. Any such disruptions or losses we incur could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial results and our ability to conduct business as expected.
