Commitments and Contingencies
The Company utilizes letters of credit to back certain payment obligations relating to its facility operating leases. The Company had approximately $3.0 million in standby letters of credit as of June 30, 2014, $2.0 million of which was drawn against the Revolving Credit Facility.
The Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") is investigating the methods by which Network Solutions has marketed its domain name and web hosting services to customers.  The Company is cooperating with the FTC investigation.  The Company has responded to an FTC Civil Investigative Demand and is responding to additional FTC information requests. The FTC investigation could conclude with a variety of outcomes, including the closing of the inquiry with no action, an order regarding our marketing practices, or a payment to the government or to customers.

In addition, from time to time, the Company and its subsidiaries receive inquiries from foreign, federal, state and local regulatory authorities or are named as defendants in various legal actions that are incidental to our business and arise out of or are related to claims made in connection with our marketing practices, customer and vendor contracts and employment related disputes. We believe that the resolution of these investigations, inquiries or legal actions will not have a material adverse effect on our financial position, marketing practices or results of operations. There were no material legal matters that were probable or estimable at June 30, 2014.
