1. DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS

 

KBL Merger Corp. IV (the “Company”) is a blank check company organized under the laws of the State of Delaware on September 7, 2016. The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (“Business Combination”). Although the Company is not limited to a particular industry or geographic region for purposes of consummating a Business Combination, the Company is focusing on the healthcare and related wellness industry. The Company is an emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with early stage and emerging growth companies. 

 

The Company has one subsidiary, KBL Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company incorporated in Delaware on July 3, 2019 (“Merger Sub”) for the purpose of effecting the proposed acquisition of 180 Life Science Corp (see below). As of March 31, 2020, the Merger Sub had no activity.

 

At March 31, 2020, the Company had not yet commenced operations. All activity through March 31, 2020 relates to the Company’s formation, its initial public offering (“Initial Public Offering”), which is described below, identifying a target company for a Business Combination, and the proposed acquisition of 180 Life Sciences Corp. (formerly known as CannBioRx Life Sciences Corp.), a Delaware corporation (“180”) (see Note 6). The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after completion of its initial Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company generates non-operating income in the form of interest income from the proceeds held in trust derived from the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement (defined below).

 

The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on June 1, 2017. On June 7, 2017, the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 10,000,000 units at $10.00 per unit (“Units” and, with respect to the shares of the Company’s common stock included in the Units offered, the “Public Shares”), generating gross proceeds of $100,000,000, which is described in Note 3. 

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the private placement (“Private Placement”) of 450,000 units (“Private Units” and, with respect to the shares of the Company’s common stock included in the Private Units offered, the “Private Shares”) at a price of $10.00 per Private Unit in a private placement to the Company’s sponsor, KBL IV Sponsor LLC (the “Sponsor”), and the underwriters, generating gross proceeds of $4,500,000, which is described in Note 3. 

 

On June 23, 2017, in connection with the underwriters’ election to fully exercise their over-allotment option, the Company consummated the sale of an additional 1,500,000 Units at $10.00 per Unit and the sale of an additional 52,500 Private Units at $10.00 per Private Unit, generating total gross proceeds of $15,525,000. Following the closing, an additional $15,150,000 of net proceeds ($10.10 per Unit) was placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”), resulting in $116,150,000 ($10.10 per Unit) held in the Trust Account. 

 

Transaction costs amounted to $7,345,436, consisting of $2,875,000 of underwriting fees, $4,025,000 of deferred underwriting fees (see Note 6) and $445,436 of Initial Public Offering costs. 

 

Pursuant to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation, the Company initially had until December 7, 2018 (the “Initial Date”) to consummate a Business Combination, or March 7, 2019 if the Company had executed a letter of intent, agreement in principle or definitive agreement for a Business Combination by the Initial Date but had not completed a Business Combination by such date. Effective November 16, 2018, the Company entered into several non-binding letters of intent with various entities for a potential Business Combination. As a result, the Company extended the time by which it must consummate a Business Combination until March 7, 2019.

 

On March 5, 2019, the Company’s stockholders approved to extend the period of time for which the Company is required to consummate a Business Combination until June 7, 2019 (or September 9, 2019 if the Company has executed a definitive agreement for a Business Combination by June 7, 2019) or such earlier date (the “First Extension Amendment”, and such later date, the “First Extension Combination Period”) as determined by the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”). The number of shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Extension Amendment was 5,128,523. The Company paid cash in the aggregate amount of $52,829,304, or approximately $10.30 per share, to redeeming stockholders. As a result of the payment on the shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Extension Amendment, cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account decreased to $65,633,068. In addition, on March 8, 2019, an aggregate of $573,433 was loaned to the Company and deposited into the Trust Account, which amount is equal to $0.09 for each of the 6,371,477 Public Shares that were not redeemed (the “Initial Loan”). The Initial Loan was paid from funds loaned to the Company by the Sponsor in the aggregate amount of $573,433.

On June 5, 2019, the Company’s stockholders approved to further extend the period of time for which the Company is required to consummate a Business Combination from June 7, 2019 to September 9, 2019 (or December 9, 2019 if the Company has executed a definitive agreement for a Business Combination by September 9, 2019) or such earlier date as determined by the Board (the “Second Extension Amendment”). On July 25, 2019 the Company entered into a Business Combination Agreement thereby extending the period of time for which the Company is required to consummate a Business Combination to December 9, 2019. The number of shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Second Extension Amendment was 1,580,762. The Company paid cash in the aggregate amount of $16,476,233, or approximately $10.42 per share, to redeeming stockholders. As a result of the payment on the shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Second Extension Amendment, cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account decreased to $49,993,473.

 

On December 6, 2019, the Company’s stockholders approved to further extend the period of time for which the Company is required to consummate a Business Combination from September 9, 2019 (or December 9, 2019 if the Company has executed a definitive agreement for a Business Combination by September 9, 2019) to April 9, 2020 or such earlier date as determined by the Board (the “Third Extension Amendment”). The number of shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Third Extension Amendment was 3,676,448. The Company paid cash in the aggregate amount of $39,121,812, or approximately $10.64 per share, to redeeming stockholders. As a result of the payment on the shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Third Extension Amendment, cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account decreased to $11,857,136 at December 6, 2019.

 

 The Sponsor or its designees has agreed to loan the Company $0.0225 for each Public Share that is not redeemed for each calendar month commencing on June 7, 2019, and on the 7th day of each subsequent month, or portion thereof, that is needed by the Company to complete a Business Combination from June 7, 2019 until April 9, 2020 (the “Additional Loans” and, collectively with the Initial Loan, the “Loans”). The Loans will not bear interest and will be repayable by the Company to the Sponsor or its designees upon consummation of a Business Combination. The Sponsor or its designees will have the sole discretion whether to continue extending Additional Loans for additional calendar months until April 9, 2020 and if the Sponsor determines not to continue extending Additional Loans for additional calendar months, its obligation to extend Additional Loans following such determination will terminate. Through March 31, 2020, an aggregate of $713,604 was deposited into the Trust Account, of which $66,857 was deposited during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

On April 8, 2020, the Company’s stockholders approved to further extend the period of time for which the Company is required to consummate a Business Combination (the “Fourth Extension Amendment”) from April 9, 2020 to July 9, 2020 or such earlier date as determined by the Board (the “Combination Period”). The number of shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Fourth Extension Amendment was 67,665. The Company paid cash in the aggregate amount of $728,884, or approximately $10.77 per share, to redeeming stockholders. As a result of the payment on the shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Fourth Extension Amendment, cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account decreased to $11,273,945 at April 9, 2020.

 

Trust Account

 

Following the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement, an amount of $116,150,000 ($10.10 per Unit) from the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the Private Units was placed in the Trust Account and invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), with a maturity of 180 days or less or in any open-ended investment company that holds itself out as a money market fund selected by the Company meeting the conditions of Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act, as determined by the Company. 

 

The Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation provides that, other than the withdrawal of interest to pay income taxes, if any, none of the funds held in the Trust Account will be released until the earlier of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination or (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account, as described below. 

 

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of its Initial Public Offering and Private Units, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete a Business Combination successfully. The Company must complete one or more initial Business Combinations having an aggregate fair market value of at least 80% of the assets held in the Trust Account (excluding the deferred underwriting commissions and taxes payable on income earned on the Trust Account) at the time of the agreement to enter into the initial Business Combination. However, the Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the outstanding voting securities of the target or otherwise acquires a controlling interest in the target sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act.

The Company will provide holders of the outstanding Public Shares (“public stockholders”) with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a stockholder meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek stockholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion. The public stockholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account (initially $10.10 per share, plus any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company for tax obligations). The per-share amount to be distributed to public stockholders who redeem their Public Shares will not be reduced by the deferred underwriting commissions the Company will pay to the underwriters (as discussed in Note 6). The Company will proceed with a Business Combination if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 upon consummation of such Business Combination and, if the Company seeks stockholder approval, a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination.  

 

If a stockholder vote is not required by law and the Company does not decide to hold a stockholder vote for business or other legal reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its amended and restated certificate of incorporation, conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If, however, stockholder approval of the transactions is required by law, or the Company decides to obtain stockholder approval for business or legal reasons, the Company will offer to redeem shares in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules and not pursuant to the tender offer rules. Additionally, each public stockholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction. If the Company seeks stockholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the initial stockholder (as defined below), officers and directors have agreed to vote their Founder Shares (as defined in Note 4), Private Shares, and any Public Shares purchased during or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of a Business Combination. In addition, the initial stockholder, officers and directors have agreed to waive their redemption rights with respect to their Founder Shares, Private Shares and Public Shares in connection with the completion of a Business Combination.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation provides that a public stockholder, together with any affiliate of such stockholder or any other person with whom such stockholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined under Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), will be restricted from redeeming its shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 15% or more of the Public Shares.

 

The Sponsor (the “initial stockholder”), officers and directors agreed not to propose an amendment to the Company’s amended and restated article of incorporation that would affect the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of its Public Shares if the Company does not complete a Business Combination, unless the Company provides the public stockholders with the opportunity to redeem their shares of the Company’s common stock in conjunction with any such amendment.

 

If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination by the Combination Period, the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest (which interest shall be net of taxes payable and less up to $50,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish public stockholders’ rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any), subject to applicable law, and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholders and the Board, dissolve and liquidate, subject in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii) to the Company’s obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law. There are no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the Company’s Rights, Warrants, Private Placement Warrants (as defined in Note 3) and the rights underlying the Private Units, which will expire worthless if the Company fails to complete its Business Combination within the Combination Period.

 

In connection with the redemption of 100% of the Company’s outstanding Public Shares for a portion of the funds held in the Trust Account, each holder will receive a full pro rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account, plus any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company for taxes payable and up to $50,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses.

The initial stockholder, officers, directors and underwriters agreed to waive their liquidation rights with respect to the Founder Shares and Private Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. However, if they should acquire Public Shares in or after the Initial Public Offering, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such Public Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. The underwriters agreed to waive their rights to their deferred underwriting commission (see Note 6) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the other funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Company’s Public Shares. In the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the residual assets remaining available for distribution (including Trust Account assets) will be only $10.19 per share initially held in the Trust Account. In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor agreed to be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a vendor for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has discussed entering into a transaction agreement, reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account. This liability will not apply with respect to any claims by a third party who executed a waiver of any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to any monies held in the Trust Account or to any claims under the Company’s indemnity of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Moreover, in the event that an executed waiver is deemed to be unenforceable against a third party, the Sponsor will not be responsible to the extent of any liability for such third-party claims. The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers (except for the Company’s independent registered public accountants), prospective target businesses or other entities with which the Company does business, execute agreements with the Company waiving any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to monies held in the Trust Account.

 

Going Concern and Liquidity

 

As of March 31, 2020, the Company had a cash balance of approximately $283,000, which excludes interest income of approximately $408,000 from the Company’s investments in the Trust Account which is available to the Company for tax obligations. Through March 31, 2020, the Company has withdrawn approximately $1,156,000 of interest income from the Trust Account to pay its income and franchise taxes, of which no amounts were withdrawn during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

On March 15, 2019, the Company issued the Sponsor a promissory note (the “March Promissory Note”), pursuant to which all outstanding advances were converted into loans under the March Promissory Note. The March Promissory Note is unsecured, non-interest bearing and due on the earlier of (i) the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) the liquidation of the Company. Up to $1,000,000 of the loans under the March Promissory Note may be converted, at the Sponsor’s discretion, into units of the post-Business Combination entity at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units would be identical to the Private Units (see Note 4). As of March 31, 2020, there was $371,178 outstanding under the March Promissory Note. (see Note 4).

 

In connection with a non-binding term sheet (the “Term Sheet”) for a Business Combination transaction with 180 entered into on April 10, 2019, Tyche Capital LLC (“Tyche), a stockholder of 180, paid the Sponsor $650,000 to purchase such obligations owed to the Sponsor (the “Tyche Note”) under the March Promissory Note (see Note 6). In December 2019, the Tyche Note was transferred to 180. As of March 31, 2020, there was no outstanding balance owed under the Tyche Note.

 

On April 15, 2019, the Company received $400,000 in loans from the 180 Parties to fund the Operating Expenses (see Note 6). Through December 31, 2019, the Company received additional loans in the aggregate amount of $649,825 from the 180 Parties to fund Operating Expenses and Extension Expenses (see Note 6). As of March 31, 2020, there was $1,699,825 due to 180, inclusive of the $650,000 transferred to 180 from Tyche.

 

Through December 31, 2019, the Company received an aggregate of $1,209,512 in advances from the Sponsor to fund working capital needs. An aggregate of $314,509 of such advances were converted into loans during the year ended December 31, 2019 (see Note 4). As of March 31, 2020, there was $795,003 of advances outstanding.

 

If the Company is unable to raise additional capital, it may be required to take additional measures to conserve liquidity, which could include, but not necessarily be limited to, suspending the pursuit of a Business Combination. The Company cannot provide any assurance that new financing will be available to it on commercially acceptable terms, if at all.

In addition, in connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with Financial Accounting Standard Board’s Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-15, “Disclosures of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern,” management has determined that the liquidity condition and mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The liquidity condition and date for mandatory liquidation and dissolution raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern through July 9, 2020 (approved extension date), the scheduled liquidation date of the Company if it does not complete a Business Combination prior to such date. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recovery of the recorded assets or the classification of the liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information or footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes necessary for a comprehensive presentation of financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of a normal recurring nature, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results and cash flows for the periods presented.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 as filed with the SEC on April 7, 2020, which contains the audited financial statements and notes thereto. The financial information as of December 31, 2019 is derived from the audited financial statements presented in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. The interim results for the three months ended March 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020 or for any future interim periods.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Emerging growth company

 

The Company is an “emerging growth company” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and stockholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.

 

Further, Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that a company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to non-emerging growth companies but any such election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of the Company’s consolidated financial statements with another public company which is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company which has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods.

  

Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the consolidated financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future confirming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from our estimates.

 

Cash and marketable securities held in Trust Account

 

At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, assets held in the Trust Account were comprised of $11,979,999 and $11,877,654, respectively, in money market funds which are invested in U.S. Treasury Securities.

 

Common stock subject to possible redemption

 

The Company accounts for its common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Common stock subject to mandatory redemption are classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that feature redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. The Company’s common stock features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, 12,489 and 33,618 shares of common stock subject to possible redemption at March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, are presented as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity section of the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.

   

Income taxes

 

The Company complies with the accounting and reporting requirements of ASC Topic 740 “Income Taxes,” which requires an asset and liability approach to financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are computed for differences between the consolidated financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities that will result in future taxable or deductible amounts, based on enacted tax laws and rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had a deferred tax asset of approximately $457,000 and $407,000, respectively, which had a full valuation allowance recorded against it of approximately $457,000 and $407,000, respectively.

 

The Company’s currently taxable income primarily consists of interest income on the Trust Account. The Company’s general and administrative costs are generally considered start-up costs and are not currently deductible. During the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company recorded income tax expense of approximately $5,000 and $96,000, respectively, primarily related to interest income earned on the Trust Account. The Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 was approximately 3% and 29%, respectively, which differs from the expected income tax rate due to the start-up costs (discussed above) which are not currently deductible.

 

ASC Topic 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the consolidated financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The Company’s management determined that Delaware is the Company’s major tax jurisdiction. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, there were no unrecognized tax benefits and no amounts accrued for interest and penalties. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position.

 

The Company may be subject to potential examination by federal or state taxing authorities in the areas of income taxes. These potential examinations may include questioning the timing and amount of deductions, the nexus of income among various tax jurisdictions and compliance with federal and state tax laws. The Company’s management does not expect that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits will materially change over the next twelve months.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2020

(unaudited)

 

In assessing the realization of the deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion of all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which temporary differences representing net future deductible amounts become deductible. Management considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. After consideration of all of the information available, management believes that significant uncertainty exists with respect to future realization of the deferred tax assets and has therefore established a full valuation allowance.

 

Net (loss) income per common share

 

Net (loss) income per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Shares of common stock subject to possible redemption at March 31, 2020 and 2019 have been excluded from the calculation of basic (loss) income per share for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 since such shares, if redeemed, only participate in their pro rata share of the Trust Account earnings. The Company has not considered the effect of (1) warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement to purchase 6,001,250 shares of common stock and (2) rights sold in the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement that convert into 1,200,250 shares of common stock, in the calculation of diluted income per share, since the exercise of the warrants and the conversion of the rights into shares of common stock is contingent upon the occurrence of future events and the inclusion of such warrants and rights would be anti-dilutive under the treasury stock method.

 

Concentration of credit risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk consist of a cash account in a financial institution which, at times may exceed the Federal depository insurance coverage of $250,000. At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had not experienced losses on this account and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such account.

 

Fair value of financial instruments

 

The fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” approximates the carrying amounts represented in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets, primarily due to their short-term nature.

 

Recently issued accounting standards

 

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

3. INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING AND PRIVATE PLACEMENT

 

Initial Public Offering

 

Pursuant to the Initial Public Offering, the Company sold 11,500,000 Units at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit, inclusive of 1,500,000 Units sold to the underwriters on June 23, 2017 upon the underwriters’ election to fully exercise their over-allotment option, generating gross proceeds of $115,000,000. Each Unit consists of one share of the Company’s common stock, one right to receive one-tenth of one share of the Company’s common stock upon the consummation of a Business Combination (“Right”), and one redeemable warrant to purchase one-half of one share of the Company’s common stock (“Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one-half of one share of common stock at an exercise price of $5.75 per half share ($11.50 per whole share), subject to adjustment. No fractional shares will be issued upon exercise of the warrants. The Warrants will become exercisable on the later of (i) 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination and (ii) 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering, and will expire five years after the completion of the initial Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.

 

11

 

 

KBL MERGER CORP. IV

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2020

(unaudited)

 

The Company may redeem the Warrants, in whole and not in part, at a price of $0.01 per Warrant upon 30 days’ notice (“30-day redemption period”), only in the event that the last sale price of the common stock equals or exceeds $18.00 per share for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which notice of redemption is given, provided there is an effective registration statement with respect to the shares of common stock underlying such Warrants and a current prospectus relating to those shares of common stock is available throughout the 30-day redemption period. If the Company calls the Warrants for redemption as described above, the Company’s management will have the option to require all holders that wish to exercise Warrants to do so on a “cashless basis.” In determining whether to require all holders to exercise their warrants on a “cashless basis,” the management will consider, among other factors, the Company’s cash position, the number of Warrants that are outstanding and the dilutive effect on the Company’s stockholders of issuing the maximum number of shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants.

 

Each holder of a Right will receive one-tenth (1/10) of one share of common stock upon consummation of a Business Combination. No fractional shares will be issued upon exchange of the Rights. No additional consideration will be required to be paid by a holder of Rights in order to receive its additional shares upon consummation of a Business Combination as the consideration related thereto has been included in the Unit purchase price paid for by investors in the Initial Public Offering. If the Company enters into a definitive agreement for a Business Combination in which the Company will not be the surviving entity, each holder of a right will be required to affirmatively convert its rights in order to receive the 1/10 share of common stock underlying each right (without paying any additional consideration).

 

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the Warrants and Rights, which will expire worthless if the Company fails to complete its Business Combination within the Combination Period.

 

Private Placement

 

Concurrently with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Sponsor and the underwriters purchased an aggregate of 450,000 Private Units at $10.00 per Private Unit, generating gross proceeds of $4,500,000 in a Private Placement. In addition, on June 23, 2017, the Company consummated the sale of an additional 52,500 Placement Units at a price of $10.00 per Unit, which were purchased by the Sponsor and underwriters, generating gross proceeds of $525,000. Of these, 377,500 Private Units were purchased by the Sponsor and 125,000 Private Units were purchased by the underwriters. The proceeds from the Private Units were added to the net proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. The Private Units (including their component securities) will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination and the warrants included in the Private Units (the “Private Placement Warrants”) will be non-redeemable so long as they are held by the Sponsor, the underwriters or their permitted transferees. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the Sponsor, the underwriters or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the warrants included in the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering. In addition, for as long as the Private Placement Warrants are held by the underwriters or its designees or affiliates, they may not be exercised after five years from the effective date of the registration statement related to the Initial Public Offering. Otherwise, the Private Placement Warrants have terms and provisions that are identical to those of the warrants being sold as part of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and have no net cash settlement provisions.

 

If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the proceeds of the Private Placement will be part of the liquidating distribution to the public stockholders and the Private Units and their component securities issued to the Sponsor will expire worthless.

4. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

Founder Shares

 

In September 2016, the Company issued 2,875,000 shares of the Company’s common stock to the Sponsor (the “Founder Shares”) in exchange for a capital contribution of $25,000. The 2,875,000 Founder Shares included an aggregate of up to 375,000 shares subject to forfeiture by the Sponsor to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment option was not exercised in full or in part. As a result of the underwriters’ election to exercise their over-allotment option in full on June 23, 2017, 375,000 Founder Shares were no longer subject to forfeiture.

 

In conjunction with their investment in the Private Units, the underwriters or their designees also purchased membership interests in the Sponsor, through which the underwriters or their designees collectively have a pecuniary interest in 230,000 Founder Shares, pursuant to a separate private placement that closed simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement. The Sponsor beneficially owns the Founder Shares allocated to the underwriters or their designees and retains sole voting and dispositive power over such securities until the closing of a Business Combination, at which time the Sponsor will distribute the Founder Shares to the underwriters or their designees for no additional consideration. Upon receipt of the Founder Shares, the underwriters or their designees will no longer retain their ownership interests in the Sponsor.

 

The Sponsor has agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Founder Shares (except to certain permitted transferees) until the earlier to occur of (i) one year after the completion of a Business Combination, and (ii) the date following the completion of a Business Combination on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange or other similar transaction which results in all of the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of the Company’s common stock for cash, securities or other property the (“Lock-Up Period”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the last sale price of the Company’s common stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after its initial Business Combination, then the lock-up will terminate.

 

Related Party Advances

 

As of December 31, 2019, the Sponsor advanced an aggregate of $1,209,512 to fund working capital purposes and Business Combination expenses, of which $840,482 was advanced during the year ended December 31, 2019. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company repaid an aggregate amount of $100,000 of such advances and an aggregate amount of $314,509 was converted into loans under the March Promissory Note described below. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, advances of $795,003 were outstanding.

 

Administrative Service Fee

 

The Company agreed, commencing on the effective date of the Initial Public Offering through the earlier of the Company’s consummation of a Business Combination and its liquidation, to pay the Sponsor a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space, utilities and secretarial and administrative support. For the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company incurred $30,000 of administrative service fees. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, an aggregate of $286,000 is payable. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, $286,000 of the amounts due for such fees are included as loans under the March Promissory Note described below and included in the convertible promissory note related party in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Convertible Promissory Note

 

On March 15, 2019, the Company issued the Sponsor the March Promissory Note, pursuant to which outstanding advances in the aggregate amount of $314,509 were converted into loans under the March Promissory Note and including the $573,433 Initial Loan from the Sponsor. The March Promissory Note is unsecured, non-interest bearing and due on the earlier of (i) the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) the liquidation of the Company. Up to $1,000,000 of the loans under the March Promissory Note may be converted, at the Sponsor’s discretion, into units of the post-Business Combination entity at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units would be identical to the Private Units. Through March 31, 2020, the Sponsor advanced the Company $371,696 under the Expense Reimbursement Agreement (as defined in Note 5), of which $33,877 was advanced during the three months ended March 31, 2020. Through March 31, 2020, the Company repaid $238,460 of the March Promissory Note, of which $29,045 was repaid during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

In connection with the Term Sheet entered into on April 10, 2019, Tyche paid the Sponsor $650,000 to purchase such obligations owed to the Sponsor under the March Promissory Note (see Note 6). In December 2019, the Tyche Note was transferred to 180.

 

As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, there was $371,178 and $366,346, respectively, outstanding under the March Promissory Note and no amounts outstanding under the Tyche Note.

 

Related Party Loans

 

In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1,000,000 of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into units of the post-Business Combination entity at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units would be identical to the Private Units. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had $371,178 and $366,346, respectively, outstanding under the March Promissory Note.

 

5. EXPENSE REIMBURSEMENT AGREEMENT

 

On March 15, 2019, the Company entered into an expense reimbursement agreement (the “Expense Reimbursement Agreement”) with the Sponsor and KBL Healthcare Management, LLC (“KBL Management”), an affiliate of the Sponsor and its Chief Executive Officer, in recognition of the compensation expense incurred by KBL Management for services provided by one of their employees on behalf of the Sponsor to the Company. The Expense Reimbursement Agreement is effective January 1, 2019 until the earlier of (i) the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) the Company’s liquidation. Under the Expense Reimbursement Agreement, the Company will reimburse the Sponsor for the compensation expense incurred by KBL Management for its employee in the amount of $180,000 per year plus health insurance costs of $1,139 per month. At the Company’s election, the Company may pay amounts due pursuant to a non-interest bearing, unsecured promissory note. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, amounts due under the Expense Reimbursement Agreement totaled $371,696 and $337,819, respectively, and has been included in the March Promissory Note (see Note 4).

 

6. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

Management is currently evaluating the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the industry and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have a negative effect on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations and/or search for a target company, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of these condensed consolidated financial statements. The condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Registration Rights

 

The holders of the Founder Shares and Private Units and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (and any shares of the Company’s common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Private Units and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement signed on the effective date of the Initial Public Offering. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the consummation of a Business Combination. However, the registration rights agreement provides that the Company will not permit any registration statement filed under the Securities Act to become effective until termination of the applicable Lock-Up Period. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

 

Underwriting Agreement

 

The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 1,500,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments at the Initial Public Offering price, less the underwriting discounts and commissions. On June 23, 2017, the underwriters elected to exercise their over-allotment option to purchase 1,500,000 Units at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit.

 

In connection with the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the over-allotment option, the underwriters were paid a cash underwriting discount of $2,875,000. In addition, the underwriters deferred their fee of up to $4,025,000 until the completion of the initial Business Combination (the “Deferred Fee”). The Deferred Fee will be paid in cash upon the closing of a Business Combination from the amounts held in the Trust Account, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

 

Concurrently with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the underwriters purchased an aggregate of 125,000 Private Units at $10.00 per Private Unit.

 

In conjunction with their investment in the Private Units, the underwriters or their designees also purchased membership interests in the Sponsor, through which the underwriters or their designees collectively have a pecuniary interest in 230,000 Founder Shares, pursuant to a separate private placement that closed simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement.

 

Business Combination

 

On April 10, 2019, the Company entered into a non-binding term sheet (the “Term Sheet”) for a Business Combination transaction (the “Transaction”) with 180. In connection with the Term Sheet, 180, Katexco Pharmaceuticals Corp., a British Columbia corporation (“Katexco”), CannBioRx Pharmaceuticals Corp., a British Columbia corporation (“CBR Pharma”), 180 Therapeutics L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“180 LP” and together with Katexco and CBR Pharma, the “180 Subsidiaries” and, together with 180, the “180 Parties”) agreed to loan $400,000 to the Company to be used to fund the Company’s operating expenses, deal transaction expenses and any financing expenses for the Transaction (the “Operating Expenses”), and up to an additional $300,000 to be used by the Company in connection with any future extensions of the deadline for the Company to consummate a Business Combination (the “Extension Expenses”).

 

The loans are interest-free and can be pre-paid at any time without penalty, but are required to be paid back (subject to a customary waiver against the Company’s Trust Account) upon the earlier of (i) the closing of the Transaction, (ii) the consummation by the Company of a transaction with a third party constituting the Company’s initial Business Combination, or (iii) the liquidation of the Company if it does not consummate an initial Business Combination prior to its deadline to do so (a “Liquidation”). Promptly after signing the Term Sheet, the Company received the loan of $400,000 to fund the Operating Expenses.

 

In connection with the Term Sheet, Tyche Capital LLC (the “Tyche”) paid $650,000 to the Sponsor to purchase $650,000 of the obligations owed to the Sponsor under the March Promissory Note (the “Tyche Note”), but Tyche waived any rights under the assigned portion of the March Promissory Note to convert the obligations under the assigned portion of the March Promissory Note into units of the post-Business Combination entity. Pursuant to the Term Sheet, Tyche also agreed to provide equity financing for the Transaction to ensure that the Company has sufficient cash at the closing of the Transaction to meet its $5,000,001 net tangible assets test. In December 2019, the $650,000 Tyche Note was transferred to 180.

On July 25, 2019, the Company entered into a Business Combination Agreement (the “Business Combination Agreement”) with 180, the 180 Subsidiaries, Merger Sub, and Lawrence Pemble, in his capacity as representative of the stockholders of 180 and the stockholders of the 180 Subsidiaries (the “Stockholder Representative”), pursuant to which, among other matters, and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Business Combination Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into 180, with 180 continuing as the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary at the closing (the “Closing”). 

  

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Business Combination Agreement, at the Closing, (a) each outstanding share of 180 common stock will be converted into the right to receive a number of shares of the Company’s common stock (the “KBL Common Stock”) equal to the exchange ratio described below; (b) each outstanding share of 180 preferred stock will be converted into the right to receive a number of shares of the Company’s preferred stock on a one-for-one basis; and (c) each outstanding exchangeable share of 180 or any of the 180 Subsidiaries, as the case may be, will be converted into the right to receive a number of exchangeable shares equal to the exchange ratio described below. Each exchangeable share will be an exchangeable share in a Canadian subsidiary of the Company that will be exchangeable for KBL Common Stock.

 

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Business Combination Agreement, at the Closing, the Company will acquire 100% of the outstanding equity and equity equivalents of 180 (including options, warrants or other securities that have the right to acquire or convert into equity securities of the Company) in exchange for shares of KBL Common Stock (the “Transaction Shares”) valued at $175 million, subject to adjustment. Each Transaction Share will have a value equal to $10.00. The $175 million of consideration will be reduced by the amount of any liabilities of 180 in excess of $5 million at the Closing.

 

The 180 Business Combination will be consummated subject to the deliverables and provisions as further described in the Business Combination Agreement, as an exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on July 26, 2019 and in the Registration Statement on Form S-4 filed by us with the SEC on November 12, 2019 and amended on February 10, 2020.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company received additional loans in the aggregate amount of $1,049,825 from the 180 Parties to fund Operating Expenses and Extension Expenses. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, a total of $1,699,825 is due under the loans from the 180 Parties.

  

Founder Shares Escrow  

 

In connection with the Business Combination Agreement, the Sponsor deposited in escrow with a third-party escrow agent 1,406,250 of its Founder Shares that it acquired prior to the Company’s Initial Public Offering (the “Escrowed Shares”). The Escrowed Shares will be transferred to Tyche, less any portion used for financing for the Transaction, upon the earlier of (i) the closing of the Transaction or (ii) a Liquidation; provided, that if the Company consummates its initial Business Combination with a third party other than 180 or its affiliates, upon the consummation of such Business Combination, in addition to paying the loans described above, the Sponsor will transfer to Tyche a number of Escrowed Shares equal in value to three times the amount of the loans, with each Escrowed Share valued at the price paid to each public stockholder that redeems its shares in connection with such initial Business Combination.

 

Additional information on the Business Combination is available in the Company’s Form S-4 filed by us with the SEC on November 12, 2019 and amended on February 10, 2020.

 

7. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

Preferred Stock — The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 preferred shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, there are no preferred shares issued or outstanding.

8. TRUST ACCOUNT AND FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS 

 

The Trust Account can be invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in the Investment Company Act, having a maturity of 180 days or less or in any open-ended investment company that holds itself out as a money market fund selected by the Company meeting the conditions of Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act.

 

The Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation provide that, other than the withdrawal of interest to pay income taxes and up to $50,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses if any, none of the funds held in the Trust Account will be released until the earlier of: (i) the completion of the Business Combination; (ii) the redemption of Public Shares properly tendered in connection with a stockholder vote to amend the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of the Public Shares if the Company does not complete the Business Combination within the Combination Period or (iii) the redemption of 100% of the Public Shares if the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period.

 

The Company classifies its U. S. Treasury and equivalent securities as held-to-maturity in accordance with ASC 320 “Investments - Debt and Equity Securities.” Held-to-maturity securities are those securities which the Company has the ability and intent to hold until maturity. Held-to-maturity treasury securities are recorded at amortized cost on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets and adjusted for the amortization or accretion of premiums or discounts.

 

The following table presents information about the Company’s assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis at March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value:

 

Description  Level  March 31,
2020
   December 31,
2019
 
Assets:           
Marketable securities held in Trust Account – U.S. Treasury Securities Money Market Fund  1  $11,979,999   $11,877,654 

 

The Company follows the guidance in ASC 820 for its financial assets and liabilities that are re-measured at fair value at each reporting period, and non-financial assets and liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value at least annually. 

 

The fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities reflects management’s estimate of amounts that the Company would have received in connection with the sale of the assets or paid in connection with the transfer of the liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In connection with measuring the fair value of its assets and liabilities, the Company seeks to maximize the use of observable inputs (market data obtained from independent sources) and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs (internal assumptions about how market participants would price assets and liabilities). The following fair value hierarchy is used to classify assets and liabilities based on the observable inputs and unobservable inputs used in order to value the assets and liabilities:

 

  Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. An active market for an asset or liability is a market in which transactions for the asset or liability occur with sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis.
     
  Level 2: Observable inputs other than Level 1 inputs. Examples of Level 2 inputs include quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities and quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.
     
  Level 3: Unobservable inputs based on our assessment of the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

 

At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 there were no transfers in or out between the levels in the fair value hierarchy.

 

9. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

The Company evaluates subsequent events and transactions that occur after the balance sheet date up to the date that the financial statements were issued. Other than as described below, the Company did not identify any subsequent events that would have required adjustment or disclosure in the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

On April 8, 2020, the Company’s stockholders approved to further extend the period of time for which the Company is required to consummate a Business Combination from April 9, 2020 to July 9, 2020 or such earlier date as determined by the Board (the “Fourth Extension Amendment”). The number of shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Fourth Extension Amendment was 67,665. The Company paid cash in the aggregate amount of $728,884, or approximately $10.77 per share, to redeeming stockholders. As a result of the payment on the shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Fourth Extension Amendment, cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account decreased to $11,273,945 at April 9, 2020.

Recent Developments

 

On February 20, 2019, we filed a definitive proxy statement with the SEC soliciting the approval of our stockholders for, among other things, a proposal to extend the period of time for which we are required to consummate a Business Combination from March 7, 2019 to June 7, 2019 (or September 9, 2019 if the Company has executed a definitive agreement for a Business Combination by June 7, 2019) or such earlier date as determined by our board of directors. 

 

On March 5, 2019, our stockholders approved to extend the period of time for which we are required to consummate a Business Combination until June 7, 2019 (or September 9, 2019 if we have executed a definitive agreement for a Business Combination by June 7, 2019) or such earlier date as determined by our board of directors (the “First Extension Amendment”, and such later date, the “First Extension Combination Period”). The number of shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the First Extension Amendment was 5,128,523. We paid cash in the aggregate amount of $52,829,304, or approximately $10.30 per share, to redeeming stockholders. As a result of the payment on the shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the First Extension Amendment, cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account decreased to $65,633,068. In addition, on March 8, 2019, an aggregate of $573,433 was loaned to us and deposited into the Trust Account, which amount is equal to $0.09 for each of the 6,371,477 Public Shares that were not redeemed. Such amount was paid from funds loaned to us by the Sponsor.

 

In connection with the approval of the First Extension Amendment, the Sponsor or its designees had previously agreed to loan us $0.03 for each Public Share that was not redeemed for each calendar month commencing on June 7, 2019, and on the 7th day of each subsequent month, or portion thereof, that was needed by us to complete a Business Combination from June 7, 2019 until the First Extension Combination Period. The Sponsor or its designees had the sole discretion whether to continue extending loans for additional calendar months until the First Extension Combination Period and if the Sponsor determined not to continue extending loans for additional calendar months, its obligation to make additional loans following such determination would terminate.

 

On March 15, 2019, we issued the Sponsor the March Promissory Note, pursuant to which all outstanding advances were converted into loans under the March Promissory Note. The March Promissory Note is unsecured, non-interest bearing and due on the earlier of (i) the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) our liquidation. Up to $1,000,000 of the loans under the March Promissory Note may be converted, at the Sponsor’s discretion, into units of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units would be identical to the units issued in the private placement concurrently with the Initial Public Offering the Private Units. As of March 31, 2020, there was $371,178 outstanding under the March Promissory Note.

On March 15, 2019, we entered into an expense reimbursement agreement (the “Expense Reimbursement Agreement”) with the Sponsor and KBL Healthcare Management, LLC (“KBL Management”), an affiliate of the Sponsor and our Chief Executive Officer, in recognition of the compensation expense incurred by KBL Management for services provided by one of their employees on behalf of the Sponsor to us. The Expense Reimbursement Agreement is effective January 1, 2019 until the earlier of (i) the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) our liquidation. Under the Expense Reimbursement Agreement, we will reimburse the Sponsor for the compensation expense incurred by KBL Management for its employee in the amount of $180,000 per year plus health insurance costs of $1,139 per month. At our election, we may pay amounts due pursuant to a non-interest bearing, unsecured promissory note. As of March 31, 2020, amounts due under the Expense Reimbursement Agreement totaled $371,696 and has been included in the March Promissory Note discussed above. 

 

On April 10, 2019, we entered into the Term Sheet with 180, the 180 Subsidiaries, and Tyche, pursuant to which we would acquire 100% of the outstanding equity and equity equivalents of 180 (including options, warrants or other securities that have the right to acquire or convert into equity securities of 180) in exchange for shares of our common stock valued at $175 million, subject to adjustment. Due to Canadian tax considerations, it was contemplated that 180 would not be acquiring the shares of the Canadian shareholders in Katexco and CBR Pharma. Those shareholders will continue to hold Exchangeable Shares in each of CannBioRex Purchaseco ULC and Katexco Purchaseco ULC, Canadian subsidiaries of 180, which are exchangeable for common stock of 180 and ultimately, upon the Closing, become exchangeable for shares of our common stock. The Term Sheet was intended to express only a mutual indication of interest in the Business Combination and did not represent a legally binding commitment or obligation on the part of the parties. We announced the entry into the Term Sheet on April 16, 2019 but did not identify 180.

 

In connection with the Term Sheet, the 180 Parties agreed to loan us $400,000 to be used to fund our operating expenses and agreed to loan us up to an additional $300,000 to be used for extension expenses. The loans are interest-free loans and can be pre-paid at any time without penalty, but are required to be paid back (subject to a customary waiver against the Trust Account) upon the earlier of (i) the Closing, (ii) the consummation by us of a transaction with a third party constituting our initial Business Combination, or (iii) our liquidation if we do not consummate an initial Business Combination prior to our deadline to do so. Promptly after signing the Term Sheet, we received the loan of $400,000 to fund the operating expenses.

 

In connection with the Term Sheet, Tyche paid $650,000 to the Sponsor, to purchase $650,000 of the obligations owed to the Sponsor under the March Promissory Note (the “Sponsor Note”), but Tyche waived any rights under the assigned portion of the Sponsor Note to convert the obligations under the assigned portion of the Sponsor Note into units of the post Business Combination entity. In the Term Sheet, Tyche also agreed to provide equity financing for the Business Combination to ensure that we have sufficient cash at the Closing to meet our $5,000,001 net tangible assets test.

 

On May 20, 2019, we filed a definitive proxy statement with the SEC soliciting the approval of our stockholders for, among other things, a proposal to extend the period of time for which we are required to consummate a Business Combination from June 7, 2019 (or September 9, 2019 if we have executed a definitive agreement for a Business Combination by June 7, 2019) to September 9, 2019 (or December 9, 2019 if the Company has executed a definitive agreement for a Business Combination by September 9, 2019) or such earlier date as determined by our board of directors.

 

On June 5, 2019, our stockholders approved to further extend the period of time for which we were required to consummate a Business Combination from June 7, 2019 to September 9, 2019 (or December 9, 2019 if we had executed a definitive agreement for a Business Combination by September 9, 2019) or such earlier date as determined by our board of directors (the “Second Extension Amendment”, and such later date, the “Second Combination Period”). The number of shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Second Extension Amendment was 1,580,762. We paid cash in the aggregate amount of $16,476,233, or approximately $10.42 per share, to redeeming stockholders. As a result of the payment on the shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Second Extension Amendment, cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account decreased to $49,933,473.  

 

In connection with the approval of the Second Extension Amendment, the Sponsor or its designees agreed to loan us $0.0225 for each Public Share that was not redeemed for each calendar month commencing on June 7, 2019, and on the 7th day of each subsequent month, or portion thereof, that was needed by us to complete a Business Combination from June 7, 2019 until the Second Combination Period. Given the longer period of time needed to potentially complete a Business Combination, such agreement to pay $0.0225 for each Public Share that was not redeemed for each calendar month commencing on June 7, 2019 replaced and superseded the previous agreement to loan us $0.03 for each Public Share that was not redeemed for each calendar month commencing on June 7, 2019. The Sponsor or its designees had the sole discretion whether to continue extending loans for additional calendar months until the Second Combination Period and if the Sponsor determined not to continue extending loans for additional calendar months, its obligation to make additional loans following such determination would terminate.

On July 25, 2019, we, KBL Merger Sub, the 180 Parties and the Stockholder Representative entered into the Business Combination Agreement pursuant to which KBL Merger Sub will merge with and into 180 with 180 surviving the merger and continuing as our wholly-owned subsidiary, and in consideration thereof, the stockholders of 180 shall, at the option of the holder, receive shares of our common stock and the existing Exchangeable Shares will be adjusted in accordance with the terms of CannBioRex Purchaseco ULC or Katexco Purchaseco ULC, as applicable, governing the Exchangeable Shares such that they will be multiplied by the Exchange Ratio (as defined in the Business Combination Agreement) and become exchangeable into shares of our common stock.

 

In connection with the entry into Business Combination Agreement, the Sponsor deposited in escrow with a third-party escrow agent the Escrowed Shares. The Escrowed Shares will be transferred to Tyche upon the earlier of (i) the Closing or (ii) a liquidation; provided, that if we consummate our initial Business Combination with a third party other than 180 or its affiliates, upon the consummation of such Business Combination, in addition to paying certain loans, the Sponsor will transfer to Tyche a number of Escrowed Shares equal in value to three times the amount of the loans, with each Escrowed Share valued at the price paid to each public stockholder that redeems its shares in connection with such initial Business Combination.

 

 On November 19, 2019, we filed a definitive proxy statement with the SEC soliciting the approval of our stockholders for, among other things, a proposal to extend the period of time for which we are required to consummate a Business Combination from September 9, 2019 (or December 9, 2019 if we have executed a definitive agreement for a Business Combination by September 9, 2019) until April 9, 2020 or such earlier date as determined by our board of directors.

 

On November 12, 2019, we filed with the SEC a Registration Statement on Form S-4, including a preliminary proxy statement/prospectus, soliciting the approval of our stockholders for, among other things, a proposal to approve and adopt the Business Combination Agreement.

 

On December 6, 2019, our stockholders approved to extend the period of time for which we are required to consummate a Business Combination until April 9, 2020 or such earlier date as determined by our board of directors (the “Third Extension Amendment”, and, together with the First Extension Amendment and the Second Extension Amendment, the “Extension Amendments”, and such later date, the “Third Combination Period”). The number of shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Third Extension Amendment was 3,676,448. We paid cash in the aggregate amount of $39,121,812, or approximately $10.64 per share, to redeeming stockholders. As a result of the payment on the shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Third Extension Amendment, cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account decreased to $11,857,136. As of March 31, 2020, an aggregate of $713,604 was deposited into the Trust Account.

 

In connection with the approval of the Third Extension Amendment, the Sponsor or its designees agreed to loan us $0.02 for each Public Share that was not redeemed for each calendar month commencing on December 9, 2019, and on the 9th day of each subsequent month, or portion thereof, that is needed by us to complete an initial Business Combination from December 9, 2019 until the Third Combination Period. Given the longer period of time needed to potentially complete a Business Combination, such agreement to pay $0.02 for each Public Share that was not redeemed for each calendar month commencing on December 9, 2019 replaced and superseded the previous agreement to loan us $0.0225 for each Public Share that was not redeemed for each calendar month commencing on December 9, 2019. The Sponsor or its designees had the sole discretion whether to continue extending loans for additional calendar months until the Third Combination Period and if the Sponsor determined not to continue extending loans for additional calendar months, its obligation to make the additional loans following such determination would terminate. 

 

On January 13, 2020, 180 filed an amendment to its certificate of incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State to change its name from “CannBioRx Life Sciences Corp.” to “180 Life Sciences Corp.”

 

On January 29, 2020, the Business Combination Agreement was amended to extend the termination date to April 9, 2020.

 

On February 10, 2020, we filed with the SEC an amendment to the Registration Statement on Form S-4, including a preliminary proxy statement/prospectus originally filed with the SEC by us on November 12, 2019, soliciting the approval of our stockholders for, among other things, a proposal to approve and adopt the Business Combination Agreement.

 

On April 8, 2020, our stockholders approved to further extend the period of time for which we are required to consummate a Business Combination until July 9, 2020 or such earlier date as determined by the Board (the “Fourth Extension Amendment”). The number of shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Fourth Extension Amendment was 67,665. We paid cash in the aggregate amount of $728,884, or approximately $10.77 per share, to redeeming stockholders. As a result of the payment on the shares of common stock presented for redemption in connection with the Fourth Extension Amendment, cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account decreased to $11,273,945 at April 9, 2020.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, we received additional loans in the aggregate amount of $1,699,825 from the 180 Parties to be used by us to fund our operating expenses, deal transaction expenses and any financing expenses for the Transaction (the “Operating Expenses”) and any future extensions of the deadline for us to consummate a Business Combination (the “Extension Expenses”). As of March 31, 2020, a total of $1,699,825 is due under the loans from the 180 Parties.

Overview

 

We are a blank check company incorporated on September 7, 2016 in Delaware and formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar Business Combination with one or more businesses. We intend to effectuate our initial Business Combination using cash from the proceeds of our Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement, our securities, debt or a combination of cash, securities and debt.

 

The issuance of additional shares of common stock or preferred stock:

 

  may significantly dilute the equity interest of our investors;
     
  may subordinate the rights of holders of common stock if we issue preferred shares with rights senior to those afforded to our common stock;
     
  could cause a change in control if a substantial number of our shares of common stock are issued, which may affect, among other things, our ability to use our net operating loss carry forwards, if any, and could result in the resignation or removal of our present officers and directors;
     
  may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change of control of us by diluting the stock ownership or voting rights of a person seeking to obtain control of us; and
     
  may adversely affect prevailing market prices for our securities.

 

Similarly, if we issue debt securities, it could result in:

 

  default and foreclosure on our assets if our operating revenues after our Business Combination are insufficient to pay our debt obligations;
     
  acceleration of our obligations to repay the indebtedness even if we have made all principal and interest payments when due if we breach certain covenants that require the maintenance of certain financial ratios or reserves without a waiver or renegotiation of that covenant;
     
  our immediate payment of all principal and accrued interest, if any, if the debt security is payable on demand;
     
  our inability to obtain additional financing if the debt security contains covenants restricting our ability to obtain additional financing while such security is outstanding;
     
  our inability to pay dividends on our common stock;
     
  using a substantial portion of our cash flow to pay principal and interest on our debt, which will reduce the funds available for dividends on our common stock if declared, expenses, capital expenditures, acquisitions and other general corporate purposes;
     
  limitations on our flexibility in planning for and reacting to changes in our business and in the industry in which we operate;
     
  increased vulnerability to adverse changes in general economic, industry and competitive conditions and adverse changes in government regulation; and
     
  limitations on our ability to borrow additional amounts for expenses, capital expenditures, acquisitions, debt service requirements, execution of our strategy and other purposes and other disadvantages compared to our competitors who have less debt.

 

We are incurring significant costs in the pursuit of our acquisition plans. We cannot assure you that our plans to raise capital or to complete a Business Combination will be successful.

Results of Operations

 

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities from September 7, 2016 (date of inception) through March 31, 2020 were organizational activities, those necessary to prepare for the Initial Public Offering, which was consummated on June 7, 2017, and identifying a target company for a Business Combination. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after the completion of our initial Business Combination. We generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account and are incurring expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020, we had a net loss of $217,411, which consists of operating costs of $247,592 and a provision for income taxes of $5,307, offset by interest income on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $35,488.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, we had net income of $231,595, which consists of interest income on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $592,314, offset by operating costs of $264,904, and a provision for income taxes of $95,815.

   

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The completion of the Initial Public Offering and simultaneous Private Placement, inclusive of the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option in full, generated gross proceeds to us of $120,025,000. Related transaction costs amounted to $7,345,436, consisting of $2,875,000 of underwriting fees, $750,000 of deferred underwriting commissions payable (which are held in the Trust Account) and $445,436 of Initial Public Offering costs.

 

Following the Initial Public Offering and the exercise of the over-allotment option, a total of $116,150,000 was placed in the Trust Account and we had $798,469 of cash held outside of the Trust Account, after payment of all costs related to the Initial Public Offering and the exercise of the over-allotment option.

 

As of March 31, 2020, we had cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $11,979,999. Interest income earned on the balance in the Trust Account, amounting to approximately $408,000 as of March 31, 2020, may be available to us to pay taxes. Through March 31, 2020, we have withdrawn approximately $1,156,000 of interest income from the Trust Account to pay our income and franchise taxes, of which no amounts were withdrawn during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

As of March 31, 2020, we had cash of $283,394 held outside the Trust Account, which is available for use by us to finance the costs associated with identifying a target business, negotiating a Business Combination, due diligence procedures and other general corporate uses. In addition, as of March 31, 2020, we had accounts payable and accrued expenses of $347,173.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020, cash used in operating activities amounted to $201,217. Net loss of $217,411 was affected by interest earned on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $35,488 and changes in our operating assets and liabilities, which provided cash of $51,682.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, cash used in operating activities amounted to $307,148. Net income of $231,595 was offset by interest earned on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $592,314 and changes in our operating assets and liabilities, which provided cash of $53,571.

  

On March 15, 2019, we entered into the Expense Reimbursement Agreement with our Sponsor and KBL Management in recognition of the compensation expense incurred by KBL Management for services provided by one of their employees on behalf of the Sponsor to us. The Expense Reimbursement Agreement is effective January 1, 2019 until the earlier of (i) the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) our liquidation. Under the Expense Reimbursement Agreement, we will reimburse the Sponsor for the compensation expense incurred by KBL Management for its employee in the amount of $180,000 per year plus health insurance costs of $1,139 per month. At our election, we may pay amounts due pursuant to a non-interest bearing, unsecured promissory note. As of March 31, 2020, amounts due under the Expense Reimbursement Agreement totaled $371,178 and has been included in the March Promissory Note discussed below.

 

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the Trust Account (which interest shall be net of taxes payable and excluding deferred underwriting commissions) to complete our initial Business Combination. We may withdraw interest to pay taxes and up to $50,000 for liquidation expenses, if any. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our initial Business Combination, the remaining proceeds held in the Trust Account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.

 

22

 

 

We have until July 9, 2020 to complete an initial Business Combination. If we are unable to complete a Business Combination by July 9, 2020, since we have executed a definitive agreement for a Business Combination by July 9, 2020, we will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest (which interest shall be net of taxes payable and less up to $50,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish public stockholders’ rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any), subject to applicable law, and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholders and our board of directors, dissolve and liquidate, subject in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii) to our obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law. We intend to seek stockholder approval for an extension of the time period for us to complete the Business Combination.

 

Going Concern and Liquidity

 

As of March 31, 2020, we had a cash balance of approximately $283,000, which excludes interest income of approximately $408,000 our investments in the Trust Account which is available to us for tax obligations. Through March 31, 2020, we have withdrawn approximately $1,156,000 of interest income from the Trust Account to pay our income and franchise taxes, of which no amounts were withdrawn during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Until the consummation of a Business Combination, we will be using funds held outside of the Trust Account for paying existing accounts payable, identifying and evaluating prospective acquisition candidates, performing business due diligence on prospective target businesses, traveling to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses, reviewing corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, selecting the target business to acquire and structuring, negotiating and consummating a Business Combination.

 

If our estimates of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating a Business Combination are less than the actual amount necessary to do so, we may have insufficient funds available to operate its business prior to a Business Combination. Moreover, we may need to obtain additional financing either to complete a Business Combination or because it becomes obligated to redeem a significant number of its Public Shares upon completion of a Business Combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such Business Combination.

 

On March 15, 2019, we issued the Sponsor the March Promissory Note, pursuant to which all outstanding advances were converted into loans under the March Promissory Note. The March Promissory Note is unsecured, non-interest bearing and due on the earlier of (i) the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) our liquidation. Up to $1,000,000 of the loans under the March Promissory Note may be converted, at the Sponsor’s discretion, into units of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units would be identical to the Private Units. As of March 31, 2020, there was $371,178 outstanding under the March Promissory Note.

 

In connection with the Term Sheet, Tyche paid $650,000 to the Sponsor, to purchase $650,000 of the obligations owed to the Sponsor under the March Promissory Note (the “Tyche Note”), but Tyche waived any rights under the assigned portion of the March Promissory Note to convert the obligations under the assigned portion of the March Promissory Note into units of the post- Business Combination entity. In the Term Sheet, Tyche also agreed to provide equity financing for the Transaction to ensure that we have sufficient cash at the closing of the Transaction to meet our $5,000,001 net tangible assets test. In December 2019, the $650,000 Tyche Note was transferred to 180.

  

On April 15, 2019, we received $400,000 in loans from the 180 Parties to fund our Operating Expenses. During the year ended December 31, 2019, we received additional loans in the aggregate amount of $649,825 from the 180 Parties to fund Operating Expenses and Extension Expenses. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, a total of $1,699,825 is due under the loans from the 180 Parties.

  

As of December 31, 2019, we received advances amounting to $1,209,512 from the Sponsor to fund working capital purposes and Business Combination expenses. During the year ended December 31, 2019, we repaid an aggregate amount of $100,000 of such advances and an aggregate amount of $314,509 was converted into loans under the March Promissory Note. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, advances of $795,003 were outstanding.

 

In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to (other than as described above), loan us funds as may be required. If we complete a Business Combination, we would repay such loaned amounts. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, we may use a portion of the working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay any such loaned amounts but no proceeds from the Trust Account would be used for such repayment. Up to $1,000,000 of such loans may be convertible into units of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units would be identical to the Private Units.

 

23

 

 

If we are unable to raise additional capital, we may be required to take additional measures to conserve liquidity, which could include, but not necessarily be limited to, suspending the pursuit of a potential transaction. We cannot provide any assurance that new financing will be available to us on commercially acceptable terms, if at all.

 

In addition, in connection with our assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with Financial Accounting Standard Board’s Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-15, “Disclosures of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern,” management has determined that the liquidity condition and mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution raises substantial doubt about the our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The liquidity condition and date for mandatory liquidation raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern through July 9, 2020, the scheduled liquidation date.

 

Off-balance sheet financing arrangements

 

We have no obligations, assets or liabilities which would be considered off-balance sheet arrangements. We do not participate in transactions that create relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, often referred to as variable interest entities, which would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements. We have not entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements, established any special purpose entities, guaranteed any debt or commitments of other entities, or purchased any non-financial assets.

  

Contractual obligations

 

We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations or long-term liabilities, other than an agreement to pay the Sponsor a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space, utilities and administrative support provided to us. We began incurring these fees on June 7, 2017 and will continue to incur these fees monthly until the earlier of the completion of our initial Business Combination or our liquidation.

 

We have an agreement to pay the underwriters a deferred fee of up to $4,025,000 until the completion of the initial Business Combination (the “Deferred Fee”). The Deferred Fee will be paid in cash upon the closing of a Business Combination from the amounts held in the Trust Account, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. We have identified the following critical accounting policy:

 

Common stock subject to possible redemption

 

We account for our common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Common stock subject to mandatory redemption are classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that feature redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within our control) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. Our common stock features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of our control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, 12,489 and 33,618 shares of common stock subject to possible redemption at March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, are presented as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity section of our condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

Recent accounting pronouncements

  

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our condensed consolidated financial statements.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

The net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Units held in the Trust Account are invested in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of 180 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations. Due to the short-term nature of these investments, we believe there will be no associated material exposure to interest rate risk.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As required by Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2020. Based upon her evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) were effective.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

During the most recently completed fiscal quarter, there has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
