NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

 

Note 1 — Description of Organization, Business Operations and Basis of Presentation

 

RMG Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) is a newly organized blank check company incorporated in Delaware on October 22, 2018 (date of inception) for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”). While the Company may pursue an acquisition opportunity in any business, industry, sector or geographical location, it intends to focus its search for a target business in the diversified resources and industrial materials sectors. The Company is an emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with emerging growth companies.

 

As of September 30, 2019, the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity for the period from October 22, 2018 (date of inception) through September 30, 2019 relates to the Company’s formation and the initial public offering (“Initial Public Offering”). The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of its initial Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end.

 

The Company’s sponsor is RMG Sponsor, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Sponsor”). The Company’s ability to commence operations is contingent upon obtaining adequate financial resources. The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on February 12, 2019. On February 12, 2019, the Company consummated its Initial Public Offering of 20,000,000 units (“Units” and, with respect to the Class A common stock included in the Units being offered, the “Public Shares”), and on February 19, 2019, the underwriters fully exercised their over-allotment option to purchase 3,000,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments at $10.00 per Unit, generating aggregate gross proceeds of $230 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $13.4 million, inclusive of $8.05 million in deferred underwriting commissions (Note 6). 

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the private placement (“Private Placement”) of 4,000,000 warrants (each, a “Private Placement Warrant” and collectively, the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant in a private placement to the Sponsor and the Anchor Investors (as defined in Note 3), generating gross proceeds of $6.0 million (Note 4). In connection with the full exercise of the over-allotment option by the underwriters, the Sponsor and the Anchor Investors purchased an additional 600,000 Private Placement Warrants at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, which generated additional gross proceeds of $900,000.

 

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement, $230 million ($10.00 per Unit) of the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement was placed in a trust account (the “Trust Account”), located at Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, with American Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee, and were invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), with a maturity of 180 days or less, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account as described below.

 

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete a Business Combination successfully. The Company must complete one or more initial Business Combinations having an aggregate fair market value of at least 80% of the assets held in the Trust Account (as defined below) (excluding the deferred underwriting commissions and taxes payable on income earned on the Trust Account) at the time of the agreement to enter into the initial Business Combination. However, the Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the outstanding voting securities of the target or otherwise acquires a controlling interest in the target sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act.

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

 

The Company will provide its holders of the outstanding Class A common stock, par value $0.0001, sold in the Initial Public Offering (the “public stockholders”) with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a stockholder meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek stockholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion. The public stockholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account (initially anticipated to be $10.00 per Public Share). The per-share amount to be distributed to public stockholders who redeem their Public Shares will not be reduced by the deferred underwriting commissions the Company will pay to the underwriters (as discussed in Note 6). These Public Shares were recorded at a redemption value and classified as temporary equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. In such case, the Company will proceed with a Business Combination if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 upon such consummation of a Business Combination and a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. If a stockholder vote is not required by law and the Company does not decide to hold a stockholder vote for business or other legal reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its amended and restated certificate of incorporation, conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If, however, stockholder approval of the transactions is required by law, or the Company decides to obtain stockholder approval for business or legal reasons, the Company will offer to redeem shares in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules and not pursuant to the tender offer rules. Additionally, each public stockholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction. If the Company seeks stockholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor has agreed to vote its Founder Shares (as defined below in Note 5) and any Public Shares purchased during or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of a Business Combination. In addition, the Sponsor has agreed to waive its redemption rights with respect to their Founder Shares and Public Shares in connection with the completion of a Business Combination.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation provides that a public stockholder, together with any affiliate of such stockholder or any other person with whom such stockholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined under Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), will be restricted from redeeming its shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 20% or more of the Class A common stock sold in the Initial Public Offering, without the prior consent of the Company.

 

The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors have agreed not to propose an amendment to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation that would affect the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of its Public Shares if the Company does not complete a Business Combination, unless the Company provides the public stockholders with the opportunity to redeem their Class A common stock in conjunction with any such amendment.

 

If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering, or February 12, 2021 (the “Combination Period”), the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes as well as expenses relating to the administration of the Trust Account (less up to $100,000 of interest released to the Company to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish public stockholders’ rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), subject to applicable law, and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the Company’s remaining stockholders and its Board, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the warrants, which will expire worthless if the Company fails to complete its Business Combination within the prescribed time period.

RMG ACQUSITION CORP.

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

 

The Sponsor, officers and directors have agreed to waive their liquidation rights with respect to the Founder Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. However, if the Sponsor, officers or directors acquire Public Shares in or after the Initial Public Offering, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such Public Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. The underwriters of the Initial Public Offering have agreed to waive their rights to its deferred underwriting commission (see Note 6) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within in the Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the other funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Public Shares. In the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the residual assets remaining available for distribution (including Trust Account assets) will be only $10.00 per share initially held in the Trust Account. In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor has agreed to be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has discussed entering into a transaction agreement, reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account. This liability will not apply with respect to any claims by a third party who executed a waiver of any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to any monies held in the Trust Account or to any claims under the Company’s indemnity of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Moreover, in the event that an executed waiver is deemed to be unenforceable against a third party, the Sponsor will not be responsible to the extent of any liability for such third party claims. The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers, prospective target businesses or other entities with which the Company does business, execute agreements with the Company waiving any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to monies held in the Trust Account.

 

 Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed interim financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP. In the opinion of management, the unaudited condensed interim financial statements reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments necessary for the fair statement of the balances and results for the periods presented. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ended December 31, 2019, or any future period. These unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 29, 2019.

 

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) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that an emerging growth 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 irrevocably elected 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, will adopt the new or revised standard at the time public companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of the Company’s financial statements with another emerging growth company which has not 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

 

Net Income per Common Stock

 

Net income per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. The Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement to purchase an aggregate of 12,266,666 Class A common stock in the calculation of diluted earnings per share, since their inclusion would be anti-dilutive under the treasury stock method. As a result, diluted earnings per ordinary share is the same as basic earnings per ordinary share for the periods presented.

 

The Company’s statement of operations includes a presentation of income per share for common stock subject to redemption in a manner similar to the two-class method of income per share. Net income per common stock, basic and diluted for Class A common stock is calculated by dividing the interest income earned on the Trust Account, by the weighted average number of Class A common stock outstanding for the period. Net loss per common stock, basic and diluted for Class B common stock is calculated by dividing the net income, less income attributable to Class A common stock and any working capital loans, by the weighted average number of Class B common stock outstanding for the periods presented.

 

The Company’s net income is adjusted for the portion of income that is attributable to Class A common stock subject to redemption, as these shares only participate in the earnings of the Trust Account (less applicable taxes) and not the income or losses of the Company. Accordingly, basic and diluted income per Class A common stock is calculated as follows:

Basic and diluted net loss per share, Class B   $ (0.04 )   $ (0.11 )

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the condensed interim financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires the Company’s 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 condensed interim financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to credit risk consist principally of cash, restricted cash equivalents held in the Trust Account, and marketable securities held in the Trust Account. Cash and restricted cash equivalents are maintained in accounts with financial institutions, which, at times may exceed the Federal depository insurance coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes, based upon the quality of the financial institutions, that the credit risk with regard to these deposits is not significant. The Company’s marketable securities portfolio consists entirely of U.S Treasury Securities with an original maturity of 180 days or less.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company had approximately $914,000 and $0 in cash equivalents held in the Trust Account as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.

 

The following table provides a reconciliation of cash and cash equivalents reported within the financial statements:

 

    September 30,
2019
 
Cash   $ 1,381,346  
Restricted cash equivalents held in Trust Account     913,946  
Total cash and restricted cash equivalents held in Trust Account shown in the statement of cash flows   $ 2,295,292  

 

 

Marketable Securities Held in the Trust Account

 

The Company’s portfolio of marketable securities is comprised solely of U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act, with a maturity of 180 days or less, classified as trading securities. Trading securities are presented on the balance sheets at fair value at the end of each reporting period. Gains and losses resulting from the change in fair value of these securities is included in gain on marketable securities (net), dividends and interest, held in the Trust Account in the accompanying condensed statement of operations. The estimated fair values of marketable securities held in the Trust Account are determined using available market information.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value measurements are based on the premise that fair value is an exit price representing the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. As such, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. As a basis for considering such assumptions, the following three-tier fair value hierarchy has been used in determining the inputs used in measuring fair value:

 

Level 1     Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities on the reporting date. 
         
Level 2     Pricing inputs are based on quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active and model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
         
Level 3     Pricing inputs are generally unobservable and include situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the investment. The inputs into the determination of fair value require management’s judgment or estimation of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the assets or liabilities. The fair values are therefore determined using factors that involve considerable judgment and interpretations, including but not limited to private and public comparables, third-party appraisals, discounted cash flow models, and fund manager estimates. 

 

As of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the recorded values of cash and restricted cash equivalents held in the Trust Account, prepaid expenses, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximate the fair values due to the short-term nature of the instruments. The Company’s portfolio of marketable securities held in the Trust Account is comprised of investments in U.S. Treasury securities with an original maturity of 180 days or less. The fair value for trading securities is determined using quoted market prices in active markets.

Offering Costs

 

Offering costs consist of legal, accounting, underwriting fees and other costs incurred of approximately $13.4 million that are directly related to the Initial Public Offering. These costs were charged to stockholder’s equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering in February 2019. As of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company had $100,000 and $22,100 of accrued offering costs in the accompanying balance sheets.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company follows the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that included the enactment date. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. The effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 of 26.1% and 26.7%, respectively, exceeds the statutory rate of 21% primarily due to state and local income taxes.

 

Uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return are accounted for using the more likely than not threshold for financial statement recognition and measurement. There were no unrecognized tax benefits as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. No amounts were accrued for the payment of interest and penalties as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position. The Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception.

 

Class A Common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption

 

Class A common stock subject to mandatory redemption (if any) are classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable Class A common stock (including Class A common stock that feature redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, Class A common stock are classified as stockholders’ equity. The Company’s Class A common stock feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, at September 30, 2019, 22,031,255 shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity section of the Company’s balance sheet.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

  

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2016-02, Leases, (“ASC 842”) which amends existing guidance to require lessees to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet for the rights and obligations created by long-term leases and to disclose additional quantitative and qualitative information about leasing arrangements. The new standard establishes a right-of-use model ("ROU") that requires a lessee to recognize a ROU asset and lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with an initial term longer than twelve months. Leases will be classified as finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern and classification of expense recognition in the income statement. The Company adopted ASC 842 effective January 1, 2019 and has elected the short-term lease recognition exemption for all leases that qualify. Accordingly, the Company has not recognized a ROU asset or lease liability as of September 30, 2019.

RMG ACQUSITION CORP.

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

 

In July 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-11, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260); Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480); Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): (Part I) Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Down Round Features, (Part II) Replacement of the Indefinite Deferral for Mandatorily Redeemable Financial Instruments of Certain Nonpublic Entities and Certain Mandatorily Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests with a Scope Exception. The ASU allows companies to exclude a down round feature when determining whether a financial instrument (or embedded conversion feature) is considered indexed to the entity’s own stock. As a result, financial instruments (or embedded conversion features) with down round features may no longer be required to be accounted classified as liabilities. A company will recognize the value of a down round feature only when it is triggered and the strike price has been adjusted downward. For equity-classified freestanding financial instruments, such as warrants, an entity will treat the value of the effect of the down round, when triggered, as a dividend and a reduction of income available to common shareholders in computing basic earnings per share. For convertible instruments with embedded conversion features containing down round provisions, entities will recognize the value of the down round as a beneficial conversion discount to be amortized to earnings. The guidance in ASU 2017-11 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2019. As a result, the warrants issued in February 2019, in connection with the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement, were equity-classified.

 

The Company’s management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

 

Note 3 — Initial Public Offering

 

On February 12, 2019, the Company sold 20,000,000 Units at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit in the Initial Public Offering. Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock and one-third of one redeemable warrant (“Public Warrant”). On February 19, 2019, the underwriters fully exercised their over-allotment option to purchase 3,000,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments at $10.00 per Unit, generating additional gross proceeds of $30.0 million. Each whole Public Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Class A common stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 7).

 

Of the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering, an aggregate of 2,530,000 Units were purchased by certain funds and accounts managed by subsidiaries of BlackRock, Inc. and certain funds and accounts managed by Alta Fundamental Advisers LLC (together, the “Anchor Investors”).

 

Note 4 — Private Placement

 

On February 12, 2019, the Company sold 4,000,000 Private Placement Warrants to the Sponsor and the Anchor Investors at $1.50 per warrant, generating gross proceeds of $6.0 million in the Private Placement. On February 19, 2019, in connection with the full exercise of the over-allotment option by the underwriters, the Sponsor and the Anchor Investors purchased 600,000 additional Private Placement Warrants, which generated additional gross proceeds of $900,000.

 

Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable to purchase one share of Class A common stock at $11.50 per share. A portion of the net proceeds from the Private Placement was added to the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless.

 

Note 5 — Related Party Transactions

 

Founder Shares

 

On November 6, 2018, the Sponsor purchased 7,187,500 shares (the “Founder Shares”) of the Company’s Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class B common stock”), for an aggregate price of $25,000. On December 17, 2018, the Company effectuated an 0.8-for-1 reverse split of the Founder Shares, resulting in an aggregate outstanding amount of 5,750,000 Founder Shares. In January 2019, the Sponsor forfeited to the Company 575,000 Founder Shares and the Anchor Investors purchased from the Company 575,000 Founder Shares for cash consideration of approximately $2,300. Additionally, the Sponsor had agreed to forfeit up to 750,000 Founder Shares to the extent that the over-allotment option is not exercised in full by the underwriters. On February 19, 2019, the underwriters fully exercised its over-allotment option; thus, these shares were no longer subject to forfeiture.

RMG ACQUSITION CORP.

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

 

The Founder Shares will automatically convert into Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis at the time of the Company’s initial Business Combination and are subject to certain transfer restrictions.

Related Party Reimbursements and Loans

 

The Sponsor and the management agreed to cover expenses related to the Company’s formation and the Initial Public Offering (“Expenses Reimbursement”), and expected to be reimbursed upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. The Company borrowed approximately $153,000 under the Expenses Reimbursement and fully repaid this amount to the related parties as of September 30, 2019.

 

In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds held in the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. In the event that a Business Combination is not completed, the Company may use a portion of the proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1.5 million of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into warrants of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $1.50 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans.

 

Note 6 — Commitments & Contingencies

 

Registration Rights

 

The holders of Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans, if any, will be entitled to registration rights (in the case of the Founder Shares, only after conversion of such shares to Class A common stock) pursuant to a registration and shareholder rights agreement. These holders will be entitled to certain demand and “piggyback” registration rights. However, the registration and shareholder rights agreement provides that the Company will not permit any registration statement filed under the Securities Act to become effective until the termination of the applicable lock-up period for the securities to be registered. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

 

Underwriting Agreement

 

The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option from the date of the final prospectus relating to the Initial Public Offering to purchase up to 3,000,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any, at $10.00 per Unit, less underwriting discounts and commissions. On February 19, 2019, the underwriters fully exercised its over-allotment option.

 

The underwriters were entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit, or $4.6 million in the aggregate, paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, $0.35 per unit, or $8.05 million in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred underwriting commissions will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

 

Lease Agreement

 

In November 2018, the Company entered into a six-month lease agreement from January 15, 2019 to July 31, 2019 for its office space in New York. The agreement calls for a monthly rent of $10,000 and a security deposit of $20,000. The Company recorded the security deposit and January 2019 rent payment of approximately $25,000 in Prepaid expenses and other assets in the accompanying Balance Sheet as of December 31, 2018. As of September 30, 2019, $20,000 related to the security deposit was recorded in Prepaid expenses and other assets. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company recorded rent expense of approximately $31,000 and approximately $91,000, respectively.

The Company entered into an engagement letter to obtain legal advisory services, pursuant to which the legal counsel agreed to defer all fees until the closing of a Business Combination. As of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company recorded an aggregate of $450,000 and $300,000 in connection with such arrangement in deferred legal fees in the accompanying balance sheet, respectively.

 

Note 7 — Stockholder’s Equity

 

Common stock

 

Class A Common stock — The Company is authorized to issue 100,000,000 shares of Class A common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. There were no shares of Class A common stock issued and outstanding as of December 31, 2018. As of September 30, 2019, there were 23,000,000 shares of Class A common stock issued or outstanding, including 22,031,255 share of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption.

 

Class B Common stock — The Company is authorized to issue 10,000,000 shares of Class B common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. On December 17, 2018, the Company effectuated an 0.8-for-1 reverse split of the Founder Shares, resulting in an aggregate outstanding amount of 5,750,000 Founder Shares. As of December 31, 2018, there were 5,750,000 shares of Class B common stock outstanding. Of the 5,750,000 Class B common stock outstanding, up to 750,000 shares were subject to forfeiture to the Company by the Sponsor for no consideration to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment option was not exercised in full or in part, so that the holders of the Company’s Class B common stock would have collectively owned 20.0% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock after the Initial Public Offering. On February 19, 2019, the underwriters fully exercised its over-allotment option; thus, 750,000 shares of Class B common stock were no longer subject to forfeiture. As a result, there were 5,750,000 shares of Class B common stock outstanding as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

 

Common stockholders of record are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters to be voted on by stockholders. Holders of the Class A common stock and holders of the Class B common stock will vote together as a single class on all matters submitted to a vote of the Company’s stockholders, except as required by law.

 

The Class B common stock will automatically convert into Class A common stock at the time of the initial Business Combination on a one-for-one basis (subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like), and subject to further adjustment.

 

Preferred Stock — The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock, with such designations, voting and other rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Company’s board of directors. As of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, there were no shares of preferred stock issued or outstanding.

 

Warrants — Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement, the Company issued the Public Warrants and the Private Placement Warrants. Public Warrants may only be exercised for a whole number of shares. No fractional Public Warrants will be issued. The Public Warrants will become exercisable on the later of   (a) 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination or (b) 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering; provided in each case that the Company has an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants and a current prospectus relating to them is available (or the Company permits holders to exercise their Public Warrants on a cashless basis and such cashless exercise is exempt from registration under the Securities Act). The Company has agreed that as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 15 business days, after the closing of a Business Combination, the Company will use its best efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement for the registration, under the Securities Act, of the Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants. The Company will use its best efforts to cause the same to become effective and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement, and a current prospectus relating thereto, until the expiration of the Public Warrants in accordance with the provisions of the warrant agreement. If a registration statement covering the Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants is not effective by the sixtieth (60th) day after the closing of the initial Business Combination, warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when the Company will have failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise warrants on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act or another exemption. The Public Warrants will expire five years after the completion of a Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

 

The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions. Additionally, the Private Placement Warrants will be non-redeemable so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or such purchasers’ permitted transferees. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants.

 

The Company may call the Public Warrants for redemption (except with respect to the Private Placement Warrants):

 

  · in whole and not in part;

 

  · at a price of $0.01 per warrant;

 

  · upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption; and

 

  · if, and only if, the last reported last sale price of the Class A common stock equals or exceeds $18.00 per share for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders.

 

Additionally, commencing ninety days after the Public Warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding Public Warrants (except with respect to the Private Placement Warrants) in whole and not in part, for the number of Class A common stock determined by reference to the table set forth in the Company’s prospectus relating to the Initial Public Offering based on the redemption date and the “fair market value” of the Class A common stock, upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption and if, and only if, the last sale price of the Class A common stock equals or exceeds $10.00 per share (as adjusted per share splits, share dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) on the trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the Public Warrant holders. The “fair market value” of the Class A common stock is the average last reported sale price of the Class A common stock for the 10 trading days ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the notice of redemption is sent to the holders of Public Warrants.

 

If the Company calls the Public Warrants for redemption, management will have the option to require all holders that wish to exercise the Public Warrants to do so on a “cashless basis,” as described in the warrant agreement.

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

 

The exercise price and number of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants may be adjusted in certain circumstances including in the event of a share capitalization, or recapitalization, reorganization, merger or consolidation. If, in connection with the closing of the initial Business Combination, the Company issues additional shares of common stock or securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for shares of common stock for capital raising purposes at an issue price or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per share, the warrant exercise price will be adjusted to be equal to 115% of the price received in the new issuance. The Company adopted the provisions of ASU 2017-11 effective January 1, 2019. As a result, this exercise price reset provision was excluded from the assessment of whether the warrants are considered indexed to the Company’s own stock. The warrants otherwise meet the requirements for equity classification, as such were initially classified in stockholder’s equity. The Company will recognize the value of the exercise price reset provision if and when it becomes triggered, by recognizing the value of the effect of the exercise price reset as a deemed dividend and a reduction of income available to common shareholders in computing basic earnings per share.

 

Additionally, in no event will the Company be required to net cash settle the warrants shares. If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and the Company liquidates the funds held in the Trust Account, holders of warrants will not receive any of such funds with respect to their warrants, nor will they receive any distribution from the Company’s assets held outside of the Trust Account with the respect to such warrants. Accordingly, the warrants may expire worthless.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “continue,” or the negative of such terms or other similar expressions. There can be no assurance that actual results will not materially differ from expectations. Such statements include, but are not limited to, any statements relating to our ability to consummate any acquisition or other business combination and any other statements that are not statements of current or historical facts. These statements are based on management’s current expectations, but actual results may differ materially due to various factors, including, but not limited to:

  · our ability to complete our initial business combination;

 

  · our success in retaining or recruiting, or changes required in, our officers, key employees or directors following our initial business combination;

 

  · our officers and directors allocating their time to other businesses and potentially having conflicts of interest with our business or in approving our initial business combination, as a result of which they would then receive expense reimbursements;

 

  · our potential ability to obtain additional financing to complete our initial business combination;

 

  · our pool of prospective target businesses in the diversified resources and industrial materials sectors;

 

  · failure to maintain the listing on, or the delisting of our securities from, the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) or an inability to have our securities listed on NYSE or another national securities exchange following our initial business combination;

 

  · the ability of our officers and directors to generate a number of potential investment opportunities;

 

  · our public securities’ potential liquidity and trading;

 

  · the lack of a market for our securities;

Overview

 

We are a newly organized blank check company incorporated in Delaware on October 22, 2018 (date of inception) for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “initial business combination”). While we may pursue an acquisition opportunity in any business, industry, sector or geographical location, it intends to focus our search for a target business in the diversified resources and industrial materials sectors. We are an emerging growth company and, as such, we are subject to all of the risks associated with emerging growth companies. Our sponsor is RMG Sponsor, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “sponsor”).

 

On February 12, 2019, we consummated our initial public offering (“initial public offering”) of 20,000,000 units (“units” and, with respect to the Class A common stock included in the units being offered, the “public shares”) at $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds of $200 million. On February 19, 2019, the underwriters fully exercised their over-allotment option to purchase 3,000,000 additional units to cover over-allotments at $10.00 per unit, which generated additional gross proceeds of $30.0 million. We incurred offering costs of approximately $13.4 million, inclusive of $8.05 million in deferred underwriting commissions.

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the initial public offering, we consummated the private placement (“private placement”) of 4,000,000 warrants (each, a “private placement warrant” and collectively, the “private placement warrants”) at a price of $1.50 per private placement warrant in a private placement to the sponsor and the certain funds and accounts managed by subsidiaries of BlackRock, Inc. and certain funds and accounts managed by Alta Fundamental Advisers LLC (together, the “Anchor Investors”), generating gross proceeds of $6.0 million. In connection with the full exercise of the over-allotment option by the underwriters, the sponsor and the Anchor Investors purchased an additional 600,000 private placement warrants at a price of $1.50 per private placement warrant, which generated additional gross proceeds of $900,000.

 

Upon the closing of the initial public offering and private placement (including the exercise of the over-allotment option), $230.0 million ($10.00 per unit) of the net proceeds of the sale of the units in the initial public offering and the private placement was placed in a trust account (the “Trust Account”), located at Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, with American Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee, and were invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), with a maturity of 180 days or less, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of an initial business combination and (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account as described below.

 

If we are unable to complete an initial business combination within 24 months from the closing of the initial public offering, or February 12, 2021, we will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the public shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to us to pay our franchise and income taxes as well as expenses relating to the administration of the Trust Account (less up to $100,000 of interest released to us to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding public shares, which redemption will completely extinguish public stockholders’ rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), subject to applicable law, and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of our remaining stockholders and its Board, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to our obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the warrants, which will expire worthless if we fail to complete the initial business combination within the prescribed time period.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2019, we had approximately $1.4 million in our operating bank account held outside of the Trust Account, approximately $2.3 million of investment income earned on marketable securities held in the Trust Account available to pay franchise tax and income tax obligations, and a working capital of approximately $1.3 million (excluding franchise tax and income tax obligations).

 

17

 

 

Through September 30, 2019, our liquidity needs have been satisfied through receipt of a $25,000 capital contribution from our sponsor in exchange for the issuance of the founder shares, approximately $153,000 in loans from our sponsor, and the proceeds from the consummation of the private placement not held in the Trust Account. We fully repaid the loans from our sponsor as of September 30, 2019.

 

Based on the foregoing, management believes that we will have sufficient working capital and borrowing capacity to meet our needs through the earlier of the consummation of a business combination or one year from this filing. Over this time period, we will be using these funds for paying existing accounts payable, identifying and evaluating prospective initial business combination candidates, performing due diligence on prospective target businesses, paying for travel expenditures, selecting the target business to merge with or acquire, and structuring, negotiating and consummating the business combination.

 

Results of Operations

 

Our entire activity since inception was in preparation for our initial public offering, and since such offering, our activity has been limited to the search for a prospective initial business combination, and we will not be generating any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our initial business combination. We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. We will not generate any operating revenues until after completion of our initial business combination. We will generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents. We expect to incur increased expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, we had net income of approximately $658,000, which consisted of approximately $1.1 million in net gains, dividends and interest income from marketable securities held in the Trust Account, approximately $9,000 in interest income, offset by approximately $211,000 in general and administrative costs, $50,000 in franchise tax expense, and approximately $232,000 in income tax expense.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, we had net income of approximately $1.8 million, which consisted of approximately $3.3 million in net gains, dividends and interest income from marketable securities held in the Trust Account, approximately $23,000 in interest income, offset by approximately $668,000 in general and administrative costs, $150,000 in franchise tax expense, and approximately $669,000 in income tax expense.

 

Related Party Transactions

 

Founder Shares

 

On November 6, 2018, the sponsor purchased 7,187,500 shares (the “founder shares”) of the Company’s Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class B common stock”), for an aggregate price of $25,000. On December 17, 2018, the Company effectuated an 0.8-for-1 reverse split of the founder shares, resulting in an aggregate outstanding amount of 5,750,000 founder shares. In January 2019, the sponsor forfeited to the Company 575,000 founder shares and the Anchor Investors purchased from the Company 575,000 founder shares for cash consideration of approximately $2,300. Additionally, the sponsor had agreed to forfeit up to 750,000 founder shares to the extent that the over-allotment option is not exercised in full by the underwriters. On February 19, 2019, the underwriters fully exercised their over-allotment option; thus, these founder shares were no longer subject to forfeiture.

 

The founder shares will automatically convert into Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis at the time of the Company’s initial business combination and are subject to certain transfer restrictions.

 

Related Party Reimbursements and Loans

 

The sponsor agreed to cover expenses related to our formation and the initial public offering (“expenses reimbursement”), and expected to be reimbursed upon the completion of the initial public offering. We borrowed approximately $153,000 under the expenses reimbursement and fully repaid this amount to the related parties as of September 30, 2019.

 

18

 

 

In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with an initial business combination, the sponsor or an affiliate of the sponsor, or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds as may be required (“working capital loans”). If we complete an initial business combination, we would repay the working capital loans out of the proceeds held in the Trust Account released to us. Otherwise, the working capital loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. In the event that an initial business combination is not completed, we may use a portion of the proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the working capital loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the working capital loans. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such working capital loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. The working capital loans would either be repaid upon consummation of an initial business combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1.5 million of such working capital loans may be convertible into warrants of the post initial business combination entity at a price of $1.50 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the private placement warrants. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such working capital loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements; Commitments and Contractual Obligations; Quarterly Results

 

As of September 30, 2019, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K and did not have any commitments or contractual obligations other than obligations disclosed herein. No unaudited quarterly operating data is included in this annual report, as we have conducted no operations to date.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

This management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The preparation of our financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities in our financial statements. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and judgments, including those related to fair value of financial instruments and accrued expenses. We base our estimates on historical experience, known trends and events and various other factors that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. The Company has identified the following as its critical accounting policies:

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value measurements are based on the premise that fair value is an exit price representing the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. As such, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. As a basis for considering such assumptions, the following three-tier fair value hierarchy has been used in determining the inputs used in measuring fair value:

 

Level 1     Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities on the reporting date. 
         
Level 2     Pricing inputs are based on quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active and model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
         
Level 3     Pricing inputs are generally unobservable and include situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the investment. The inputs into the determination of fair value require management’s judgment or estimation of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the assets or liabilities. The fair values are therefore determined using factors that involve considerable judgment and interpretations, including but not limited to private and public comparables, third-party appraisals, discounted cash flow models, and fund manager estimates. 

 

19

 

 

As of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the recorded values of cash and restricted cash equivalents held in the Trust Account, prepaid expenses, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximate the fair values due to the short-term nature of the instruments. Our portfolio of marketable securities held in the Trust Account is comprised of investments in U.S. Treasury securities with an original maturity of 180 days or less. The fair value for trading securities is determined using quoted market prices in active markets.

 

Class A Common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption

 

Class A common stock subject to mandatory redemption (if any) are classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable Class A common stock (including Class A common stock that feature redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within our control) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, Class A common stock are classified as stockholders’ equity. Our Class A common stock feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of our control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, at September 30, 2019, 22,031,255 shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity section of our balance sheet.

 

Net Income Per Common Stock

 

Net income per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. We have not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement to purchase an aggregate of 12,266,666 Class A common stock in the calculation of diluted earnings per share, since their inclusion would be anti-dilutive under the treasury stock method. As a result, diluted earnings per ordinary share is the same as basic earnings per ordinary share for the periods presented.

 

Our statements of operations include a presentation of income per share for common stock subject to redemption in a manner similar to the two-class method of income per share. Net income per common stock, basic and diluted for Class A common stock is calculated by dividing the interest income earned on the Trust Account, by the weighted average number of Class A common stock outstanding for the period. Net loss per common stock, basic and diluted for Class B common stock is calculated by dividing the net income, less income attributable to Class A common stock and any working capital loans, by the weighted average number of Class B common stock outstanding for the periods presented.

 

Offering Costs

 

Offering costs consist of legal, accounting, underwriting fees and other costs incurred of approximately $13.4 million that are directly related to the Initial Public Offering. These costs were charged to stockholder's equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering in February 2019.

 

JOBS Act

 

On April 5, 2012, the JOBS Act was signed into law. The JOBS Act contains provisions that, among other things, relax certain reporting requirements for qualifying public companies. 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) 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 an election to opt out is irrevocable. We have elected to irrevocably 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, we will adopt the new or revised standard at the time public companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of our financial statements with another emerging growth company that has not opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accountant standards used.

 

20

 

 

Additionally, we are in the process of evaluating the benefits of relying on the other reduced reporting requirements provided by the JOBS Act. Subject to certain conditions set forth in the JOBS Act, if, as an “emerging growth company”, we choose to rely on such exemptions we may not be required to, among other things, (i) provide an auditor’s attestation report on our system of internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to Section 404, (ii) provide all of the compensation disclosure that may be required of non-emerging growth public companies under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, (iii) comply with any requirement that may be adopted by the PCAOB regarding mandatory audit firm rotation or a supplement to the auditor’s report providing additional information about the audit and the financial statements (auditor discussion and analysis), and (iv) disclose certain executive compensation related items such as the correlation between executive compensation and performance and comparisons of the CEO’s compensation to median employee compensation. These exemptions will apply for a period of five years following the completion of our initial public offering or until we are no longer an “emerging growth company,” whichever is earlier.

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information otherwise required under this item. 

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2019, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that during the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.
