|Goodwill and Business Acquisition [Abstract]|
|GOODWILL AND BUSINESS ACQUISITION||
NOTE 5 – GOODWILL AND BUSINESS ACQUISITION
We account for acquisitions in accordance with FASB ASC 805, “Business Combinations” (“ASC 805”), and goodwill in accordance with ASC 350, “Intangibles — Goodwill and Other” (“ASC 350”). The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair value of net assets acquired in a business combination is recorded as goodwill. On May 17, 2021, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “AR Agreement”) with Drone Merger Sub I Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub I”), Drone Merger Sub II Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of the Company “Merger Sub II”), American Robotics, and Reese Mozer, solely in his capacity as the representative of American Robotics’ Stockholders (as defined in the AR Agreement).
On August 5, 2021 (the “Closing Date”), the Company’s stockholders approved the issuance of shares of the Company’s common stock, including shares of common stock underlying Warrants (as defined below), in connection with the acquisition of American Robotics.
On the Closing Date, American Robotics merged with and into Merger Sub I (“Merger I”), with American Robotics continuing as the surviving entity, and American Robotics then subsequently and immediately merged with and into Merger Sub II (“Merger II” and, together with Merger I, the “Mergers”), with Merger Sub II continuing as the surviving entity and as a direct wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Simultaneously with Merger II, Merger Sub II was renamed American Robotics, Inc.
Pursuant to the AR Agreement, American Robotics stockholders and certain service providers received (i) cash consideration in an amount equal to $7,500,000, less certain indebtedness, transaction expenses and other expense amounts as described in the AR Agreement; (ii) 6,750,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (inclusive of 26 fractional shares paid in cash as set forth in the AR Agreement); (iii) warrants exercisable for 1,875,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Warrants”) (inclusive of 24 fractional shares paid in cash and the equivalent of Warrants for 309,320 shares representing the value of options exercisable for 211,038 shares issued under the Company’s incentive stock plan and reducing the aggregate amount of Warrants as set forth in the AR Agreement); and (iv) the cash release from the PPP Loan Escrow Amount (as defined in the AR Agreement). Each of the Warrants entitle the holder to purchase a number of shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $7.89. Each of the Warrants shall be exercisable in three equal annual instalments commencing on the one-year anniversary of the Closing Date and shall have a term of ten years. 59,544 of the stock options were issued fully vested to employees who did not exercise their American Robotics options prior to the Closing Date and had no ongoing service requirements and therefore they were included in the purchase consideration. The remaining 151,494 stock options issued vest over four years and are contingent on ongoing employment by the employee and are recorded as compensation expense over the service period.
Also on the Closing Date, the Company entered into employment agreements and issued 1,375,000 restricted stock units (“RSUs”) under the Company’s incentive stock plan to key members of American Robotics’ management. These RSUs vest in equal installments on the next three anniversaries of the Closing Date and vesting is contingent on the individuals remaining employed by the Company. These RSUs are not included in purchase consideration and are expensed ratably over the service period. They were valued at the closing market price on the Closing Date. The compensation expense recognized in the three- and six- month periods ended June 30, 2022 in respect of these restricted stock units was $889,016 and $1,761,750, respectively, and as of June 30, 2022 the unrecognized compensation expense was $7,483,365.
Lock-Up and Registration Rights Agreement
On May 17, 2021, the Company entered into a lock-up and registration rights agreement, by and among the Company and the directors and officers of American Robotics (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement (i) the Company agreed to file a resale registration statement for the Registrable Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) no later than 90 days following the closing of the Mergers, and to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause it to become effective as promptly as practicable following such filing, (ii) the directors and officers and other American Robotics stockholders who sign a joinder to such agreement were granted certain piggyback registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the closing of the Mergers, and (iii) the directors and officers of American Robotics agreed, subject to certain customary exceptions, not to sell, transfer or dispose of an aggregate of 2,583,826 shares of Company common stock for a period of 180 days from the closing of the Mergers. In connection with the Mergers, the stockholders of American Robotics entered into a Joinder to Lock-Up and Registration Rights Agreement.
The following table summarizes the consideration paid for American Robotics and the final allocation of the purchase consideration to the estimated fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the acquisition date.
