Note 4 - Acquisition of AirPatrol Corporation
On December 20, 2013, the Company entered into an Agreement of Plan and Merger (the “AirPatrol Agreement”) to acquire 100% of the capital stock of AirPatrol, a provider of mobile cyber-security and location-based services solutions, for a purchase price equal to (a) $10.0 million in cash, subject to certain adjustments, allocated to and among certain creditors, payees and holders of AirPatrol’s issued and outstanding capital stock and (b) 2 million shares (after giving effect to a reverse stock split) of the Company common stock, of which it was agreed that 800,000 shares would be held in escrow for one year, as security to satisfy any indemnity claims that may be owed by the former AirPatrol stockholders to the Company (the “AirPatrol Merger Consideration”). The AirPatrol Merger Consideration also included an earn-out, half of the value of which was to be in stock and the other half in cash (unless otherwise agreed or required pursuant to the AirPatrol Merger Agreement) payable to the former stockholders of AirPatrol in 2015 in accordance with the following formula: if for the five quarter period ending March 31, 2015, AirPatrol Net Income meets or exceeds $3.5 million, the Company agreed to pay to the former AirPatrol stockholders an earn-out payment equal to two times AirPatrol Net Income, provided that the total earn-out payment could not exceed $10.0 million.
The merger was consummated on April 18, 2014 with an effective date of acquisition of April 16, 2014, and as a result the Company became the holder of 100% of the outstanding capital stock of AirPatrol. At the closing, the Company (i) paid or initiated actions to pay a total of $8.5 million to various former stockholders, former note holders, former directors, professional service firms and continuing officers, (ii) issued a total of 1,042,809 shares of its common stock to former stockholders, directors, and continuing officers of AirPatrol, and to the investment banking firm of AGC Partners, LLC, and (iii) issued 800,000 shares of its common stock into a holdback escrow. A working capital adjustment applied at closing reduced cash consideration by approximately $486,000 and reduced stock merger consideration by 157,192 shares.
The total recorded purchase price for the transaction was $19.7 million which consisted of $9.5 million cash paid and $10.2 million for the value of stock. The Company evaluated the fair value of the contingent earn out liability and deemed it more likely than not that nothing would be owed. The Company is in current negotiations with the shareholder representative of AirPatrol regarding the 800,000 shares in the holdback escrow. 478,099 of the holdback shares have been authorized to be released to the AirPatrol security holders, 7,500 shares have been released to the Company for cancellation and the distribution of the remaining 314,401 shares is still under discussion.
