In another matter, the company released a statement in early January regarding a dispute with a Chinese supplier in 2020 over the production of N95 masks, announcing that the Shanghai International Economic Trade Arbitration Commission had ruled in its favor in the case.
According to iFabric, its Intelligent Fabric division contracted in May 2020 for the supply of a million N95 masks. The contract was partially fulfilled, then the supplier defaulted on the remainder of the contract citing supply constraints. iFabric “terminated the contract for breach in July 2020 and demanded repayment of its remaining deposit of U.S. $2,905,000 together with liquidated damages.” It stated that it is “pleased to announce that it has now received a favorable ruling by the arbitrator which, includes the obligation of the supplier to: return the outstanding deposit of U.S. $2,905,000 as of the date that the contract was terminated; pay liquidated damages, including legal costs, in an amount of U.S. $146,942; pay interest at the rate of 12% per annum calculated from the date of payment of the deposit,” and reimburse the full cost of the arbitration hearing, amounting to Chinese RMB 445,902, which iFabric paid prior to the hearing. — NM
