NOTE 7 — ACQUISITION AND DISPOSITION
On May 23, 2017, the Company closed the Merger with Gold King. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement and as consideration for the acquisition of Gold King, on the closing date, 2,446,433 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, were issued to holders of Gold King’s common stock, Series A Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock and certain incoming officers. In addition, 45,000.18 shares of the Company’s newly designated Series C Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, convertible into an aggregate of 4,500,180 shares of the Company’s common stock were issued to Copper King, 45,500.18 shares of Series C Preferred Stock were issued to Copper King upon closing, 4,500.01 shares of Series C Preferred Stock were to be held in escrow pursuant to the terms of an escrow agreement and 4,523,589 shares of the Company’s common stock and warrants to purchase up to 452,359 shares of the Company’s common stock were issued to the holders of Gold King’s Series C Preferred Stock. Additionally, 231,458 of the Company’s stock options were issued to the holders of Gold King’s outstanding stock options issued in connection with the closing of the acquisition of the Keystone Project.
As a result of the Merger, for financial statement reporting purposes, the business combination between the Company and Gold King was treated as a reverse acquisition and recapitalization with Gold King deemed the accounting acquirer and the Company deemed the accounting acquiree under the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Section 805-10-55. At the time of the Merger, both the Company and Gold King had their own separate operating segments. Accordingly, the assets and liabilities and the historical operations that were reflected in the consolidated financial statements after the Merger were those of Gold King and were recorded at the historical cost basis of the Company. The acquisition process utilized the capital structure of the Company and the assets and liabilities of Gold King which were recorded at historical cost.
The Company’s assets and liabilities were recorded at their fair values as of the date of the Merger and the results of operations of the Company are consolidated with results of operations of Gold King starting on the date of the Merger. The Company was deemed to have issued 1,204,667 shares of common stock which represents the outstanding common stock of the Company prior to the closing of the Merger. The Company accounted for the value under ASC 805-50-30-2 “Business Combinations” whereby if the consideration is not in the form of cash, the measurement is based on either the cost which shall be measured based on the fair value of the consideration given or the fair value of the assets (or net assets) acquired, whichever is more clearly evident and thus more reliably measurable. The Company deemed that the fair value of the consideration given was $4.70 per share based on the quoted trading price on the date of the Merger amounting to $5,661,935 which was more clearly evident and more reliable measurement basis. The estimated fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed were provisional and based on the information that was available as of the acquisition date to estimate the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The Company believes that information provides a reasonable basis for estimating the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed.
As a result of the reverse merger, the total purchase consideration exceeded the net assets acquired. The Company recorded $6,094,760 of goodwill at the time of the merger. None of the goodwill recognized was expected to be deductible for income tax purposes. The following table summarizes the consideration paid and the amounts of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed recognized at the acquisition date:
The net purchase price paid by the Company was allocated to assets acquired and liabilities assumed on the records of the Company as follows:
During the year ended April 30, 2018, the Company recorded an impairment loss of $6,094,760 as the Company determined that the carrying value of the goodwill was not recoverable. The Company has determined that if the business combination would have occurred on the first day of the reporting period there would not have been a material change to the continuing operations of the financial statements presented.
In June 2017, subsequent to the Merger, the Company decided to discontinue its memory product business. The Company sold the Dataram Memory business on October 13, 2017 for a purchase price of $900,000. The Company focused its activities on its gold and precious metal exploration business after the sale. During the year ended April 30, 2018, the Company received net proceeds from the sale of Dataram Memory business of $326,404 after payment of fees related to the sale such as legal and commission expenses and other liabilities assumed.
During the year ended April 30, 2018, the Company recognized a gain on extinguishment of liabilities of $248,684 which was included in the loss from discontinued operations as the Company settled the distribution payable to the former Dataram Memory shareholders at an amount less than the liability originally recorded at the time of acquisition. Additionally, during the year ended April 30, 2018, the Company recognized gain from sale of discontinued operations of $94,485 related to the sale of the Dataram Memory business on October 13, 2017.
The Company had a financing agreement (the “Financing Agreement”) with Rosenthal & Rosenthal, Inc. that provides for a revolving loan with a maximum borrowing capacity of $3,500,000. The Financing Agreement renewal date was August 31, 2017 and was renewable from year to year unless such Financing Agreement is terminated as set forth in the loan agreement. The amount outstanding under the Financing Agreement bore interest at a rate of the Prime Rate (as defined in the Financing Agreement) plus 3.25% (the “Effective Rate”) or on Over-advances (as defined in the Financing Agreement), if any, at a rate of the Effective Rate plus 3%. The Financing Agreement contained other financial and restrictive covenants, including, among others, covenants limiting the Company’s ability to incur indebtedness, guarantee obligations, sell assets, make loans, enter into mergers and acquisition transactions and declare or make dividends. Borrowings under the Financing Agreement were collateralized by substantially all the assets of the Company. The Financing Agreement provided for advances against eligible accounts receivable and inventory balances based on prescribed formulas of raw materials and finished goods. On October 13, 2017, upon the sale of the Dataram Memory business, the buyer assumed the obligation under this Financing Agreement, therefore, liabilities related to this financing agreement was $0 as of April 30, 2018.
