NOTE 11 – REDEEMABLE NONCONTROLLING INTEREST
On July 9, 2023, Ondas Networks Inc. entered into an Agreement with a third party to purchase Redeemable Preferred Stock in Ondas Networks and the issuance of warrants to purchase 10,200,000 shares of Ondas Holdings.
The Preferred Stock accrues dividends at the rate per annum of eight percent (8%) of the original issue price, of $34.955 per share (the “Original Issue Price”). Such dividends are payable in cash or additional shares of Preferred Stock, with such valuation based on the Original Issue Price. Each share of Preferred Stock is convertible, at the option of the holder thereof, at any time and from time to time, and without the payment of additional consideration by the holder thereof, into such number of fully paid and non-assessable shares of Networks Common Stock (as defined below) as is determined by dividing the Original Issue Price by the conversion price in effect at the time of conversion, which initially is set at $34.955. In lieu of any fractional shares to which the holder would otherwise be entitled, the number of shares of Networks Common Stock to be issued upon conversion of the Preferred Stock shall be rounded to the nearest whole share. The Preferred Stock can be redeemed at the request of the Holder at any time after the fifth anniversary for the greater of two times the initial investment plus accrued dividends or the amount that would be due if the Preferred Stock was converted into Common Stock as described above.
On July 21, 2023, Ondas Networks entered into a certain Amendment to Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Networks Amendment,” together with the Original Networks Agreement, the “Networks Agreement”). Pursuant to the Networks Amendment, in exchange for an initial sale of shares of preferred stock of Ondas Networks, $0.00001 par value per share (the “Networks Preferred Stock”), the Initial Purchaser acquired the following (the “Initial Networks Closing”), for gross proceeds to Ondas Networks of $11,508,517: (i) 329,238 shares of Networks Preferred Stock, at a purchase price of $34.955 per share (the “Per Share Price”), convertible into shares of Common Stock of Ondas Networks, $0.00001 par value per share (the “Networks Common Stock”) and (ii) warrants to purchase 7,825,792 shares of the Company Common Stock, at an exercise price of $0.89 per share, exercisable commencing ninety days following the date of issuance through the fifth anniversary of the date of issuance (the “Initial Warrants”). Also, pursuant to the Networks Amendment, the Initial Purchaser agreed to purchase, and Ondas Networks agreed to sell and issue to the Initial Purchaser, an additional 99,885 shares of Networks Preferred Stock, at the Per Share Price (the “Second Initial Purchaser Closing”) and warrants to purchase 2,374,208 shares of Company Common Stock, at an exercise price of $0.89 per share, exercisable commencing ninety days following the date of issuance through the fifth anniversary of the date of issuance (the “Second Initial Purchaser Warrants”), within thirty days of the Initial Networks Closing.
Ondas Networks will use the proceeds from the sale of the Networks Preferred Stock for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including fees related to the transactions contemplated by the Networks Agreement. No portion of the proceeds will be distributed to the Company.
Also on July 21, 2023, Ondas Networks completed the Initial Closing. In connection with the Initial Networks Closing, the Company issued the Initial Warrants. Also, in connection with the Initial Closing, the parties entered into an indemnification agreement, investors’ rights agreement, right of first refusal agreement, and voting agreement. Forms of each of these agreements are attached to Exhibit 10.1 to Form 8-K filed on July 28, 2023.
On August 11, 2023, Ondas Networks completed the Second Initial Purchaser Closing. In connection with the Second Initial Purchaser Closing, the Company issued Second Initial Purchaser Warrants. Following the Second Initial Purchaser Closing, the Initial Purchaser has invested an aggregate of $15.0 million and owns a minority interest of approximately 28% of Ondas Networks.
The Company assessed the Preferred Stock in accordance with ASC 480 and determined that it should be recorded as temporary equity and not as a liability. The initial valuation was assigned to the Preferred stock and the warrants issued in connection with this transaction based on relative fair values, with the initial valuation of the noncontrolling interest being $10,406,949. It is being accreted using the effective interest rate method over the five-year period to achieve the redemption value of $30,000,000 plus accrued dividends.
