Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment Company and Subsidiaries

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1: Organization and Nature of Business

 

Organization and Nature of Business

 

Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment Company, a Delaware corporation (together with its subsidiaries, unless the context indicates otherwise, the “Company” or “HOFRE”), was incorporated in Delaware as GPAQ Acquisition Holdings, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of our legal predecessor, Gordon Pointe Acquisition Corp. (“GPAQ”), a special purpose acquisition company.

 

On July 1, 2020, the Company consummated a business combination with HOF Village, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“HOF Village”), pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger dated September 16, 2019 (as amended on November 6, 2019, March 10, 2020 and May 22, 2020, the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, GPAQ, GPAQ Acquiror Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Acquiror Merger Sub”), GPAQ Company Merger Sub, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Company Merger Sub”), HOF Village and HOF Village Newco, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Newco”). The transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement are referred to in the Company’s Form 10-K/A as the “Business Combination” filed on May 12, 2021.

 

The Company is a resort and entertainment company leveraging the power and popularity of professional football and its legendary players in partnership with the National Football Museum, Inc., doing business as the Pro Football Hall of Fame (“PFHOF”). Headquartered in Canton, Ohio, the Company owns the Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls, a multi-use sports, entertainment and media destination centered around the PFHOF’s campus. The Company is creating a diversified set of revenue streams through developing themed attractions, premier entertainment programming, sponsorships and media.

 

The Company has entered into several agreements with PFHOF, an affiliate of HOFRE, and certain government entities, which outline the rights and obligations of each of the parties with regard to the property on which the Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls sits, portions of which are owned by the Company and portions of which are net leased to the Company by the government entities (see Note 7 for additional information). Under these agreements, the PFHOF and the government entities are entitled to use portions of the Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls on a direct-cost basis.

 

COVID-19

 

During 2020 and continuing into 2021, the world has been, and continues to be, impacted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. COVID-19 and measures to prevent its spread impacted the Company’s business in a number of ways, most significantly with regard to a reduction in the number of events and attendance at events at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium and National Youth Football and Sports Complex, which negatively impacts the Company’s ability to sell sponsorships. Also, the Company opened its newly renovated DoubleTree by Hilton in Canton in November 2020, but the occupancy rate has been negatively impacted by the pandemic. The impact of these disruptions and the extent of their adverse impact on its financial and operating results will be dictated by the length of time that such disruptions continue, which will, in turn, depend on the currently unknowable duration and severity of the impacts of COVID-19, and among other things, the impact of governmental actions imposed in response to COVID-19 and individuals’ and companies’ risk tolerance regarding health matters going forward and developing strain mutations.

Note 1: Organization and Nature of Business (continued)

 

Liquidity

 

The Company has sustained recurring losses and negative cash flows from operations through March 31, 2021. In addition, the Company has significant debt obligations maturing in the 12 month period subsequent to the date these consolidated financial statements are issued. Since inception, the Company’s operations have been funded principally through the issuance of debt and equity. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had approximately $50 million of cash and cash equivalents and $18 million of restricted cash, respectively.

 

On January 28, 2021, the Company executed a binding term sheet with IRG, LLC pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to IRG, LLC in a private placement of preferred stock and warrants to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), for a purchase price of $15 million. The private placement is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021. In addition, during February 2021, the Company received approximately $34.5 million from the issuance of shares of its Common Stock, net of offering costs. The Company will deposit up to $25 million of the net proceeds from the private placement and the underwritten public offering in the account (the “Proceeds Account”) controlled by Aquarian (defined below) required under our term loan agreement among the Company, Newco, and certain of Newco’s subsidiaries, as borrowers, and Aquarian Credit Funding LLC (“Aquarian”), as lead arranger, administrative agent, collateral agent and representative of the lenders party thereto. The Company must have the lender’s prior written approval to withdraw any amounts from the Proceeds Account, pursuant to a budget and schedule agreed upon by the parties.

 

The Company believes that, as a result of these transactions, it currently has sufficient cash and financing commitments to meet its funding requirements over the next year. Notwithstanding, the Company expects that it will need to raise additional financing to accomplish its development plan over the next several years. The Company is seeking to obtain additional funding through debt, construction lending, and equity financing. There are no assurances that the Company will be able to raise capital on terms acceptable to the Company or at all, or that cash flows generated from its operations will be sufficient to meet its current operating costs. If the Company is unable to obtain sufficient amounts of additional capital, it may be required to reduce the scope of its planned development, which could harm its financial condition and operating results.

 

Note 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 (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and Rule 10 of SEC Regulation S–X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by U.S. GAAP. However, in the opinion of the management of the Company, all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and operating results have been included in these statements. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2020, filed on May 12, 2021. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for any subsequent quarters or for the year ending December 31, 2021.

Note 2: Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

Consolidation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts and activity of the Company, and its wholly owned subsidiaries. Investments in a variable interest entity in which the Company is not the primary beneficiary, or where the Company does not own a majority interest but has the ability to exercise significant influence over operating and financial policies, are accounted for using the equity method. All intercompany profits, transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The Company owns a 60% interest in Mountaineer GM, LLC (“Mountaineer”), whose results are consolidated into the Company’s results of operations. The Company acquired 60% of the equity interests in Mountaineer for a purchase price of $100 from one of its related parties. See Note 9 for additional information on the terms of the agreement. The portion of Mountaineer’s net (loss)/income that is not attributable to the Company is included in non-controlling interest.

 

Emerging Growth Company

 

The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (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 of 1934, as amended) 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 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.

Note 2: Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. 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 period. The most significant estimates and assumptions for the Company relate to bad debt, depreciation, costs capitalized to project development costs, useful lives of assets, fair value of financial instruments, and estimates and assumptions used to measure impairment. Management adjusts such estimates when facts and circumstances dictate. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Warrant Liability

 

The Company accounts for warrants for shares of the Company’s Common Stock that are not indexed to its own stock as liabilities at fair value on the balance sheet. Such warrants are subject to remeasurement at each balance sheet date and any change in fair value is recognized as a component of other expense on the statement of operations. The Company will continue to adjust the liability for changes in fair value until the earlier of the exercise or expiration of such Common Stock warrants. At that time, the portion of the warrant liability related to such Common Stock warrants will be reclassified to additional paid-in capital.

 

Property and Equipment and Project Development Costs

 

Property and equipment are recorded at historical cost and are depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. During the construction period, the Company capitalizes all costs related to the development of the Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls. Project development costs include predevelopment costs, amortization of finance costs, real estate taxes, insurance, and other project costs incurred during the period of development. The capitalization of costs began during the preconstruction period, which the Company defines as activities that are necessary to the development of the project. The Company ceases cost capitalization when a portion of the project is held available for occupancy and placed into service. This usually occurs upon substantial completion of all costs necessary to bring a portion of the project to the condition needed for its intended use, but no later than one year from the completion of major construction activity. The Company will continue to capitalize only those costs associated with the portion still under construction. Capitalization will also cease if activities necessary for the development of the project have been suspended. As of March 31, 2021, the second two phases of the project remained subject to such capitalization.

 

The Company reviews its property and equipment and projects under development for impairment whenever events or changes indicate that the carrying value of the long-lived assets may not be fully recoverable. In cases where the Company does not expect to recover its carrying costs, an impairment charge is recorded.

 

The Company measures and records impairment losses on its long-lived assets when indicators of impairment are present and the undiscounted cash flows estimated to be generated by those assets are less than their carrying amount. Considerable judgment by management is necessary to estimate undiscounted future operating cash flows and fair values and, accordingly, actual results could vary significantly from such estimates.

Net Loss Per Common Share

 

Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the periods.

 

Diluted net loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. The Company’s potentially dilutive Common Stock equivalent shares, which include incremental common shares issuable upon (i) the exercise of outstanding stock options and warrants, (ii) vesting of restricted stock units and restricted stock awards, and (iii) conversion of preferred stock, are only included in the calculation of diluted net loss per share when their effect is dilutive.

 

At March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, the following outstanding Common Stock equivalents have been excluded from the calculation of net loss per share because their impact would be anti-dilutive. The Company was not a public entity as of March 31, 2020; therefore, no warrants, restricted stock awards, or restricted stock units were potentially dilutive securities.

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company follows ASC 606, Revenue with Contracts with Customers, under ASC 606, revenue is recognized when a customer obtains control of promised goods or services, in an amount that reflects the consideration which the entity expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. To determine revenue recognition for arrangements that an entity determines are within the scope of ASC 606, the Company performs the following five steps: (i) identify the contract(s) with a customer; (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) determine the transaction price; (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation.

 

The Company generates revenues from various streams such as sponsorship agreements, rents, cost recoveries, events, hotel operation, Hall of Fantasy League, and through the sale of non-fungible tokens. The sponsorship arrangements, in which the customer sponsors a play area or event and receives specified brand recognition and other benefits over a set period of time, recognized revenue on a straight-line basis over the time period specified in the contract. Refer to Note 6 for more details. Revenue for rents, cost recoveries and events are recognized at the time the respective event or service has been performed.

 Revenue Recognition (continued)

 

A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to a customer. If the contract does not specify the revenue by performance obligation, the Company allocates the transaction price to each performance obligation based on its relative standalone selling price. Such prices are generally determined using prices charged to customers or using the Company’s expected cost plus margin. Revenue is recognized as the Company’s performance obligations are satisfied. If consideration is received in advance of the Company’s performance, including amounts which are refundable, recognition of revenue is deferred until the performance obligation is satisfied or amounts are no longer refundable.

 

The Company’s owned hotel revenues primarily consist of hotel room sales, revenue from accommodations sold in conjunction with other services (e.g. packages reservations), food and beverage sales and other ancillary goods and services (e.g. parking) related to owned hotel properties. Revenue is recognized when rooms are occupied or goods and services have been delivered or rendered, respectively. Payment terms typically align with when the goods and services are provided. Although the transaction prices of hotel room sales, goods and other services are generally fixed and based on the respective room reservation or other agreement, an estimate to reduce the transaction price is required if a discount is expected to be provided to the customer. For package reservations, the transaction price is allocated to the performance obligations within the package based on the estimated standalone selling prices of each component.

 

Advertising

 

The Company expenses all advertising and marketing costs as they are incurred. Total advertising and marketing costs for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 were $275,858 and $217,687, respectively, which are recorded as property operating expenses on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations.

 

Software Development Costs

 

The Company recognizes all costs incurred to establish technological feasibility of a computer software product to be sold, leased, or otherwise marketed as research and development costs. Prior to the point of reaching technological feasibility, all costs shall be charged to expense when incurred. Once the development of the product establishes technological feasibility, the Company will begin capitalizing these costs. Technological feasibility is established when a product design and working model have been completed and the completeness of the working model and its consistency with the product design have been confirmed through testing.

Accounting for Real Estate Investments

 

Upon the acquisition of real estate properties, a determination is made as to whether the acquisition meets the criteria to be accounted for as an asset or business combination. The determination is primarily based on whether the assets acquired, and liabilities assumed meet the definition of a business. The determination of whether the assets acquired, and liabilities assumed meet the definition of a business include a single or similar asset threshold. In applying the single or similar asset threshold, if substantially all the fair value of the gross assets acquired is concentrated in a single identifiable asset or group of similar identifiable assets, the assets acquired, and liabilities assumed are not considered a business. Most of the Company’s acquisitions meet the single or similar asset threshold, due to the fact that substantially all the fair value of the gross assets acquired is attributable to the real estate acquired.

 

Acquired real estate properties accounted for as asset acquisitions are recorded at cost, including acquisition and closing costs. The Company allocates the cost of real estate properties to the tangible and intangible assets and liabilities acquired based on their estimated relative fair values. The Company determines the fair value of tangible assets, such as land, building, furniture, fixtures and equipment, using a combination of internal valuation techniques that consider comparable market transactions, replacement costs and other available information and fair value estimates provided by third party valuation specialists, depending upon the circumstances of the acquisition. The Company determines the fair value of identified intangible assets or liabilities, which typically relate to in-place leases, using a combination of internal valuation techniques that consider the terms of the in-place leases, current market data for comparable leases, and fair value estimates provided by third party valuation specialists, depending upon the circumstances of the acquisition.

 

If a transaction is determined to be a business combination, the assets acquired, liabilities assumed, and any identified intangibles are recorded at their estimated fair values on the transaction date, and transaction costs are expensed in the period incurred.

 

Fair Value Measurement

 

The Company follows Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820–10 “Fair Value Measurement” of the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification to measure the fair value of its financial instruments and disclosures about fair value of its financial instruments. ASC 820–10 establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. To increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and related disclosures, ASC 820–10 establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three (3) broad levels.

 

The three (3) levels of fair value hierarchy defined by ASC 820–10 are described below:

 

Level 1   Quoted market prices available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date.
     
Level 2   Pricing inputs other than quoted prices in active markets included in Level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date.
     
Level 3   Pricing inputs that are generally unobservable inputs and not corroborated by market data.

 

Financial assets or liabilities are considered Level 3 when their fair values are determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies or similar techniques and at least one significant model assumption or input is unobservable.

 

The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. If the inputs used to measure the financial assets and liabilities fall within more than one level described above, the categorization is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement of the instrument.

 

The carrying amounts of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities, such as cash, prepaid expenses and other current assets, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments.

Note 2: Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

Fair Value Measurement (continued)

 

The Company uses Levels 1 and 3 of the fair value hierarchy to measure the fair value of its warrant liabilities. The Company revalues such liabilities at every reporting period and recognizes gains or losses as change in fair value of warrant liabilities in the consolidated statements of operations that are attributable to the change in the fair value of the warrant liabilities.

 

The following table provides the financial liabilities measured on a recurring basis and reported at fair value on the balance sheet as of March 31, 2021 and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value:

 

    Level     March 31, 2021  
Warrant liabilities – Public Warrants     1     $ 26,260,000  
Warrant liabilities – Private Warrants     3       2,500,000  
Warrant liabilities – November Warrants     3       17,252,000  
Warrant liabilities – December Warrants     3       38,286,000  
Fair value of aggregate warrant liabilities as of March 31, 2021           $ 84,298,000  

 

The Public Warrants are classified as Level 1 due to the use of an observable market quote in the active market. Level 3 financial liabilities consist of the Private Warrants, November Warrants, and December Warrants, for which there is no current market for these securities such as the determination of fair value requires significant judgment or estimation. Changes in fair value measurement categorized within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy are analyzed each period based on changes in estimates or assumptions and recorded as appropriate.

 

Subsequent measurement

 

The following table presents the changes in fair value of the warrant liabilities:

 

    Public Warrants     Private Warrants     November Warrants     December Warrants     Total Warrant Liability  
Fair value as of December 31, 2020   $ 4,130,000     $ 420,000     $ 9,781,000     $ 4,781,000     $ 19,112,000

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), as modified by subsequently issued ASU Nos. 2018-01, 2018-10, 2018-11, 2018-20 and 2019-01 (collectively “ASU 2016-02”). This ASU is effective for private companies beginning after December 15, 2021. ASU 2016-02 requires recognition of right-of-use assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet. In June 2020, FASB issued ASU 2020-05, further extending the effective date by one year making it effective for the Company for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2021 and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, with early adoption permitted. Most prominent among the changes in ASU 2016-02 is the lessees’ recognition of a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for operating leases. The right-of-use asset and lease liability are initially measured based on the present value of committed lease payments. Leases are classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition. Expenses related to operating leases are recognized on a straight-line basis, while those related to financing leases are recognized under a front-loaded approach in which interest expense and amortization of the right-of-use asset are presented separately in the statement of operations. As the Company is an emerging growth company and following private company deadlines, the Company has an additional deferral under this ASU to adopt beginning after December 15, 2021. Similarly, lessors are required to classify leases as sales-type, finance or operating with classification affecting the pattern of income recognition.

 

Classification for both lessees and lessors is based on an assessment of whether risks and rewards as well as substantive control have been transferred through a lease contract. ASU 2016-02 also requires qualitative and quantitative disclosures to assess the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pending adoption of this new standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-01, “Leases (Topic 842): Codification Improvements,” which requires an entity (a lessee or lessor) to provide transition disclosures under Topic 250 upon adoption of Topic 842. In February 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-02, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 119 and Update to SEC Section on Effective Date Related to Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02, Leases.” The ASU adds and amends SEC paragraphs in the ASC to reflect the issuance of SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 119 related to the new credit losses standard and comments by the SEC staff related to the revised effective date of the new leases standard. This new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pending adoption of this new standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements (continued)

 

In August 2018, FASB issued ASU 2018-15, “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other – Internal-Use Software (Topic 350): Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract.” This update clarifies the accounting treatment for fees paid by a customer in a cloud computing arrangement by providing guidance for determining when the arrangement includes a software license. This guidance is effective for public business entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. The amendments must be applied either retrospectively or prospectively to all implementation costs incurred after the date of adoption. The Company adopted this guidance on a prospective basis in the first quarter of 2020. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

Subsequent Events

 

Subsequent events have been evaluated through May 14, 2021, the date the condensed consolidated financial statements were issued. Other than what has been disclosed in the condensed consolidated financial statements in Note 12, no other events have been identified requiring disclosure or recording.

Pursuant to the terms of the Note Purchase Agreement, the PIPE Notes may be converted into shares of Common Stock at a conversion price initially equal to $11.50 per share, subject to customary adjustment. Accordingly, the aggregate amount of PIPE Notes issued and sold in the Private Placement is convertible into 1,801,851 shares of Common Stock based on the conversion rate applicable on July 1, 2020. The conversion rate will convert at a conversion price of $11.50 per share based upon the conversion rate applicable on July 1, 2020.

The exercise price per share of Common Stock of any warrant will be set at the time such warrant is issued pursuant to the Note Purchase Agreement.

 

The PIPE Notes provide for a conversion price reset such that, if the last reported sale price of the Common Stock is less than or equal to $6.00 for any ten trading days within any 30 trading day period preceding the maturity date, then the conversion price is adjusted down $6.90 per share. On July 28, 2020, the conversion price reset was triggered. On this date, the Company recorded a beneficial conversion feature of $14,166,339, which will be amortized over the remaining term of the PIPE Notes using the effective interest method.

Business Overview

 

The Company is a resort and entertainment company located in Canton, Ohio, leveraging the power and popularity of professional football in partnership with the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Company was formed in 2015 by initial equity members IRG Canton Village Member, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, and Hall of Fame Village, Inc., an Ohio corporation (which transferred its membership interest to its parent, the Pro Football Hall of Fame, in 2019). In 2016, the Company was rebranded as Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village based on a strategic long-term naming rights agreement completed with Johnson Controls, a global Fortune 500 company listed on the NYSE. The Company expects to create a diversified set of revenue streams through developing themed attractions, premier entertainment programming, sponsorships and media. The strategic plan has been developed in three phases of growth.

 

The first phase of the Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls is operational, consisting of the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, the National Youth Football & Sports Complex, and a media company. In August 2017, the Company completed the construction of the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, a sports and entertainment venue with a seating capacity of approximately 23,000. The Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium hosts multiple sports and entertainment events, including the NFL Hall of Fame Game, Enshrinement and the Concert for Legends during the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week. In 2016, the Company opened the National Youth Football & Sports Complex, which consists of eight full-sized, multi-use regulation football fields, five of which have been completed in Phase I. The facility hosts camps and tournaments for football players, as well as athletes from across the country in other sports such as lacrosse and soccer. In 2017, the Company formed a sports and entertainment media company, HOF Village Media Group, LLC, leveraging the sport of professional football to produce exclusive programming using the extensive content controlled by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as well as new programming assets developed from live events such as tournaments, camps and sporting events held at the National Youth Football & Sports Complex and the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.

 

The Company is developing new hospitality, attraction and corporate assets surrounding the Pro Football Hall of Fame Museum as part of a Phase II development plan. Plans for future components of the Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson include two premium hotels (one on campus and one in downtown Canton about five minutes from campus that was opened in Q4 2020), an indoor waterpark the Center for Excellence (an office building including retail and dining establishments), the Center for Performance (a convention center/field house), and the Hall of Fame Retail Promenade.

Key Components of the Company’s Results of Operations

 

Revenue

 

The Company’s sponsorship revenue is derived from its agreements with third parties such as Johnson Controls and Constellation NewEnergy. These sponsorship agreements are generally multi-year agreements to provide cash or some other type of benefit to the Company. Some agreements require the Company to use a portion of the sponsorship revenue to incur marketing and other activation costs associated with the agreement, and this revenue is shown net of those associated costs. Additionally, the Company’s Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium is used to host premier entertainment and sports events to generate event revenues. In addition to top entertainers, the stadium is used to host a variety of sporting events, including high school, college and professional football games throughout the year. The Company plans to continue to expand programming where applicable for its live event business. The Company’s other revenue is derived primarily from rents and cost reimbursement.

 

Operating Expenses

 

The Company’s operating expenses include property operating expenses, depreciation expense and other operating expenses. These expenses have increased in connection with putting the Company’s first phase into operation and the Company expects these expenses to continue to increase with the Company’s growth.

 

The Company’s property operating expenses include the costs associated with running its operational entertainment and destination assets such as the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium and the Youth Sports Complex. As more of the Company’s Phase II assets become operational and additional events for top performers and sporting events are held, the Company expects these expenses to continue to increase with the Company’s development.

 

Other operating expenses include items such as management fees, commission expense and professional fees. The Company expects these expenses to continue to increase with the Company’s growth.

 

The Company’s depreciation expense includes the related costs to owning and operating significant property and entertainment assets. These expenses have grown as the Company completed Phase I development and the assets associated with Phase I became operational. The Company expects these expenses to continue to grow as Phase II and III assets are developed and become operational.

 

Impact of COVID-19

 

During 2020 and continuing into 2021, the world has been, and continues to be, impacted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. COVID-19 and measures to prevent its spread impacted our business in a number of ways, most significantly with regard to a reduction in the number of events and attendance at events at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium and National Youth Football and Sports Complex, which negatively impacts our ability to sell sponsorships. Also, we opened our newly renovated DoubleTree by Hilton in Canton in November 2020, but the occupancy rate has been negatively impacted by the pandemic. The impact of these disruptions and the extent of their adverse impact on our financial and operating results will be dictated by the length of time that such disruptions continue, which will, in turn, depend on the currently unknowable duration and severity of the impacts of COVID-19, and among other things, the impact of governmental actions imposed in response to COVID-19 and individuals’ and companies’ risk tolerance regarding health matters going forward and developing strain mutations.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 as Compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2020

 

Sponsorship Revenues

 

The Company’s sponsorship revenues was $1,475,436 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as to $1,475,436 as compared to $1,660,928 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, for a decrease of $185,492, or 11.17%. This decrease was primarily driven by the cancellation of a smaller sponsorship agreement as well as the impact of revisions to two sponsorship agreements effective in the third quarter of 2020.

 

33

 

 

Rents and cost recoveries

 

The Company’s revenue from rents and cost recoveries was $41,883 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to $274,780 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, for a decrease of $232,897, or 84.76%. This decrease was primarily driven by the cancellation of many youth sports events in the first quarter of 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic that the Company was previously able to hold in the first quarter of 2020.

 

Event Revenues

 

The Company’s event revenue was $1,662 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to $27,833 from the three months ended March 31, 2020, for a decrease of $26,171, or 94.03%. This decrease was primarily driven by the cancellation of private events that were scheduled to be held in the stadium during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Hotel Revenues

 

The Company’s hotel revenue was $396,338 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to $0 from the three months ended March 31, 2020. This was driven by the opening of the DoubleTree Hotel in November 2020.

 

Property Operating Expenses

 

The Company’s property operating expense was $6,008,999 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $6,683,986 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, for a decrease of $674,987, or 10.10%. This decrease was driven by lower event expenses of $348,847 related to the 2021 Super Bowl and cancelled youth sports events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Hotel Operating Expenses

 

The Company’s hotel operating expense was $766,165 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This increase was driven by the Company incurring operating expenses related to the DoubleTree Hotel opening in November 2020.

 

Commission Expense

 

The Company’s commission expense was $166,667 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, as compared to $450,854 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, for a decrease of $284,187, or 63.03%. The decrease in commission expense is primarily the result of final prior year commissions’ fees paid in the first quarter of 2020 per the agreements in place at that time.

 

Depreciation Expense

 

The Company’s depreciation expense was $2,920,937 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to $2,722,120 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, for an increase of $198,817, or 7.30%. The increase in depreciation expense is primarily the result of additional depreciation expense incurred due to the DoubleTree Hotel opening in November 2020 as well as renovations completed at the Company’s temporary office location earlier in the second quarter of 2020.

 

Interest Expense

 

The Company’s total interest expense was $955,308 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $2,010,010 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, for a decrease of $1,054,702, or 52.47%. The decrease in total interest expense is primarily due to extinguishment of select debt instruments at the close of the Business Combination and the cancellation of a note we owed IRG in exchange for issuance of shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 (“Common Stock”) and warrants in December, as well as changes in interest rates and certain interest expense due to affiliate that was waived under a revised agreement at June 30, 2020.

 

Amortization of Debt Discount

 

The Company’s total amortization of debt discount was $1,234,114 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $3,234,413 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, for a decrease of $2,000,299, or 61.84%. The decrease in total amortization of debt discount is primarily due to the conversion of the Company’s various outstanding notes payable throughout the second half of 2020.

 

Change in Fair Value of Warrant Liability

 

The Company’s change in fair value warrant liability was a loss of $116,351,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 due primarily to an increase in the Company’s stock price.

 

34

 

 

Gain on Forgiveness of Debt

 

The Company’s gain on forgiveness of debt was $390,400 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, as compared to $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The gain on forgiveness of debt is due to the forgiveness of the Company’s Paycheck Protection Program Loan during the first quarter of 2021.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company has sustained recurring losses and negative cash flows from operations through March 31, 2021. In addition, the Company has significant debt obligations maturing in the 12 month period subsequent to the date these consolidated financial statements are issued. Since inception, the Company’s operations have been funded principally through the issuance of debt and equity. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had approximately $50 million of unrestricted cash and $18 million of restricted cash, respectively.

 

On January 28, 2021, the Company executed a binding term sheet with IRG pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to IRG in a private placement of preferred stock and warrants to purchase Common Stock for a purchase price of $15 million. In addition, during February 2020, the Company received approximately $34.5 million from the issuance of shares of its Common Stock, net of offering costs, in an underwritten public offering. See Note 5 to the condensed consolidated financial statements herein. The Company will deposit up to $25 million of the net proceeds from the private placement and the underwritten public offering in the Proceeds Account required under the Company’s term loan agreement. The Company must have the lender’s prior written approval to withdraw any amounts from the Proceeds Account, pursuant to a budget and schedule agreed upon by HOFV and the lender.

 

The Company believes that, as a result of these transactions, it currently has sufficient cash and financing commitments to meet its funding requirements over the next year. Notwithstanding, the Company expects that it will need to raise additional financing to accomplish its development plan over the next several years. The Company is seeking to obtain additional funding through debt, construction lending, and equity financing. There are no assurances that the Company will be able to raise capital on terms acceptable to the Company or at all, or that cash flows generated from its operations will be sufficient to meet its current operating costs. If the Company is unable to obtain sufficient amounts of additional capital, it may be required to reduce the scope of its planned development, which could harm its financial condition and operating results.

 

Cash Flows

 

Since inception, the Company has primarily used its available cash to fund its project development expenditures. The following table sets forth a summary of cash flows for the periods presented:

Critical Accounting Policies and Significant Judgments and Estimates

 

This discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations is based on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or U.S. GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us 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 financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reported periods. In accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions the Company believes are reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

For information on the Company’s significant accounting policies please refer to Note 2 to the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements.

Management’s Quarterly Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f). Internal control over financial reporting is a process used to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of our financial reporting and the preparation of our financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Internal control over financial reporting includes policies and procedures that pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets; provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of our financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with the authorization of our board of directors and management; and provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements.

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (our principal executive officer) and Chief Financial Officer (our principal financial officer and principal accounting officer), we performed an assessment of the Company’s significant processes and key controls. Based on this assessment, management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of December 31, 2020 due to the material weakness described below.

 

A material weakness is defined within the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board’s Auditing Standard No. 5 as a deficiency or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. We determined that our internal control over financial reporting had the following material weakness:

 

  Our processes lacked timely and complete reviews and analysis of information used to prepare our financial statements and disclosures in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.  

 

The Company is evaluating and remediating these weaknesses. Because disclosure controls and procedures include those components of internal control over financial reporting that provide reasonable assurances that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, management also determined that its disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as a result of the foregoing material weaknesses in its internal control over financial reporting.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
