Note 1 - The Business
Red Cat Holdings ("Red Cat" or the "Company") was originally incorporated in February 1984. Since April 2016, the Company's primary business has been to provide products, services and solutions to the drone industry which it presently does through its four wholly owned subsidiaries. Teal Drones is a leader in commercial and government Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) technology. Fat Shark Holdings is a provider of First Person View (FPV) video goggles. Rotor Riot sells FPV drones and equipment, primarily to the consumer marketplace. Skypersonic provides software and hardware solutions that enable drones to complete inspection services in locations where GPS (global positioning systems) are not available, yet still record and transmit data even while being operated from thousands of miles away.
Corporate developments since January 1, 2020 include:
In January 2020, the Company consummated a Merger Agreement under which Rotor Riot Acquisition Corp, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, merged with and into Rotor Riot, with Rotor Riot continuing as the surviving entity and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Under the Merger Agreement, each member of Rotor Riot received its pro rata portion of the total number of shares of the Company's common stock issued based on (A)(i) $3,700,000 minus (ii) $915,563 (which included certain debt and other obligations of Rotor Riot and its Chief Executive Officer that the Company agreed to assume (the "Assumed Obligations") divided by (B) the volume weighted average price ("VWAP") of the Company's common stock for the twenty trading days prior to the closing of the Merger. Based on a share issuance value of $and a VWAP of $1.25445, the Company issued an aggregate of shares of common stock to the members of Rotor Riot.
Following the closing, the Company's management controlled the operating decisions of the combined company. Accordingly, we accounted for the transaction as an acquisition of Rotor Riot by the Company. Based on purchase price accounting, we recognized the assets and liabilities of Rotor Riot at fair value with the excess of the purchase price over the net assets acquired recognized as goodwill. The table below reflects the acquisition date values of the purchase consideration, assets acquired, and liabilities assumed. The shares issued were valued at $(shares issued times $0.82 per share which equaled the closing price of the Company's common stock on the date that the merger agreement was consummated). A summary of the purchase price and its related allocation is as follows:
The final purchase price allocation was determined by an independent valuation services firm. Customer Relationships with a value of $39,000 are being amortized over 7 years. The carrying value of Brand Name is not being amortized but will be reviewed quarterly and formally evaluated at the end of each fiscal year.
In November 2020, the Company closed a share purchase agreement ("Share Purchase Agreement") with the sole shareholder of Fat Shark Holdings ("Fat Shark"), to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Fat Shark and its subsidiaries. The transaction was valued at $8,354,076 based on (i) the issuance of shares of common stock with a value of $6,351,076 on the date of closing (ii) a senior secured promissory note in the original principal amount of $1,753,000, and (iii) a cash payment of $250,000. The Share Purchase Agreement includes indemnification provisions, a two year non-compete agreement, and registration rights for the shares issued in the transaction. A summary of the purchase price and its related allocation is as follows:
The final purchase price allocation was determined by an independent valuation services firm. Intangible assets included proprietary technology and non-compete agreement which are being amortized over 5 and 3 years, respectively. The carrying value of Brand Name is not being amortized but will be reviewed quarterly and formally evaluated at the end of each fiscal year.
In February 2021, the Company entered into Share Purchase and Liquidity Event Agreements (the "Skypersonic Agreements") with the founder and majority shareholder of Skypersonic, Inc., ("Skypersonic") and the holders of common stock and equity based agreements representing 97.46% of Skypersonic (the "Sellers"), pursuant to which, subject to the satisfaction of certain closing conditions, the Company would acquire all of the issued and outstanding share capital of Skypersonic for an aggregate of $75,000 to fund operating costs of Skypersonic. This amount was capitalized as part of the purchase price. The transaction closed on May 7, 2021 and was paid through the issuance of shares of common stock which had a fair market value of $3,291,356. Fifty (50%) percent of the Share Consideration (the "Escrow Shares") was deposited in an escrow account as security for indemnification obligations and any purchase price adjustments due to working capital deficiencies and any other claims or expenses. Under the Skypersonic Agreements, closing date working capital deficits in excess of $ resulted in a reduction of the Share Consideration on a dollar of dollar basis. In October 2021, the Company and Skypersonic agreed to a reduction in the purchase price of $601,622 which resulted in the cancellation of shares held in escrow. A revised summary of the purchase price and its related allocation is as follows:in shares (the "Share Consideration") of the Company's common stock, based upon the VWAP of the Company's common stock at closing of the transaction (the "Skypersonic Transaction").

The foregoing amounts reflect our current estimates of fair value as of the May 7, 2021 acquisition date. The Company has engaged an independent valuation services firm to complete a formal evaluation of the acquisition. The Company expects to recognize fair values associated with the customer relationships acquired, as well as the Skypersonic brand name. When the valuation project is completed, the Company may make adjustments to the opening balance sheet. The determination of the fair values of the acquired assets and liabilities assumed (and the related determination of estimated lives of depreciable tangible and intangible assets) requires significant judgment.
On August 31, 2021, the Company closed the acquisition of Teal Drones Inc., (“Teal”) pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger by and among, the Company Teal Acquisition I Corp., (“Acquisition”) and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and Teal, (the “Merger Agreement” or “Merger”).
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, we acquired all of the issued and outstanding share capital of Teal in exchange for $14,000,000 of our common stock (“Common Stock”) at the Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) of our Common Stock for the 20 trading days ended August 31, 2021 of $2.908 per share, reduced by the amount of Teal debt assumed consisting of approximately $1.67 million payable to DA4, and approximately $1,457,000 in working capital deficit, for a net closing date payment of $10,872,753. At closing, we issued 3,738,911 shares of Common Stock (the “Stock Consideration”) with a fair market value of $10,431,562. Fifteen (15%) of the Share Consideration (the “Escrow Shares”) was deposited in an escrow account for a period of eighteen (18) months as security for indemnification obligations, any purchase price adjustments due to working capital deficiencies and any other claims or expenses. In December 2021, the Company and Teal agreed to a reduction in the purchase price of $438,058 which resulted in the cancellation of 150,639 shares held in escrow. The fair market value of the cancelled shares was $420,283. The Stock Consideration may be increased if Teal attains certain revenue levels in the twenty four (24) month period following the closing. The additional consideration begins at $4 million if sales total at least $18 million and ends at $16 million if sales total $36 million.
A revised summary of the purchase price and its related allocation is set forth below.
The foregoing amounts reflect our current estimates of fair value as of the August 31, 2021 acquisition date. The Company has engaged an independent valuation services firm to complete a formal evaluation of the acquisition. The Company expects to recognize fair values associated with the customer relationships acquired, as well as the Teal brand name but has not yet accumulated sufficient information to assign such values. When the valuation project is completed, the Company may make adjustments to the opening balance. The determination of the fair values of the acquired assets and liabilities assumed (and the related determination of estimated lives of depreciable tangible and intangible assets) requires significant judgment.
On August 31, 2021, Teal entered into an Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement with Decathlon Alpha IV, L.P. (“DA4”) (the “Loan Agreement”) in the amount of $1,670,294 (the “Loan”), representing the outstanding principal amount previously due and owing by Teal to DA4.
