PROSPECTUS SUMMARY

 

Company Overview

 

The Company’s business is to provide products, services and solutions to the drone industry. We design, develop, market, and sell drone software and products. Our business emphasis focusses on drones piloted with wearable display devices. These are head mounted displays (“HMDs”) for pilots. HMDs give pilots “first person view” (“FPV”) perspective to control their drone in flight. This is a unique experience where the pilot is interacting with an aircraft through visual immersion. In this augmented virtual reality, the pilot sees only what the drone sees, as if sitting in the pilot seat. This experience is accomplished by live streaming footage from a camera mounted on the nose of the drone directly into specially-designed goggles worn by the pilot. The image is transmitted via radio (traditionally analog but increasingly digital) to the pilot. The drone remote control unit, the drone device, and the FPV goggles are all inter-connected via radio. This effect requires sophisticated electronics that transmits visual information with sufficient speed and reliability to allow pilot control over the drone in real-time. Pilots routinely achieve speeds of over 90 mph in racing and other mission critical applications. An FPV pilot must experience a near complete transfer of their visual consciousness into the body of their piloted device.

 

  3  

 

There are three common categories of FPV flight – freestyle flight, racing and aerial photography. In freestyle the pilot navigates around obstacles, focused on acrobatics and exploring the environment around the aircraft through the HMD. This type of flight includes remote utility and crop inspection with onboard navigation and special equipment, such as moisture or heat sensors, and package delivery. FPV racing describes a growing spectator sport where pilots fly their drones in competitions through a series of obstacles, flags, and gates in a racetrack. Aerial photography is the process of viewing and recording a subject matter from the air from the viewpoint of the pilot.

 

We sell flight design cameras, video transmitters, goggles, as well as the mounts, airframes and accessories to build or operate drone aircraft. We design, develop, assemble and sell each of these FPV components individually and in packages. We believe that our products have become favorites in FPV racing and we sponsor several racing teams and pilots. We purchase and resell drones and components from leading manufacturers, including the industry leader Da Jiang Innovations (“DJI”) and custom design and build our own line of branded products. Approximately 50% of our revenue has historically been generated as a reseller and the balance from sale of branded products prior to our recent acquisition of Fat Shark Holdings, Ltd. (“Fat Shark”). In addition, we are developing a blockchain-based black box to enhance reliability and reporting of drone performance and operations as software as a service (“SaaS”). Red Cat’s Dronebox software and platform enable an easy-to-use flight log system that keeps clients compliant with regulators and helps track and collect critical drone data and feed the data to various applications. The software and platform use a patent-pending blockchain-based cloud architecture. To keep the data secure, we hash each log file on our private block chain, proving that the data is immutable and reliable. Reliable data is mandatory for regulators and insurance companies and is essential for analyzing drone flights and effective drone fleet management. Through our blockchain-based black box for drones, we can offer one easy to use system for analytics and services. By applying machine learning to the log files, we can prevent drone flight problems before they happen through artificial intelligence. We charge a monthly recurring fee for each drone in the customer’s drone fleet. We store all flight logs, photos, and videos from the black box service, which allows detailed flight replay.

 

The target market for drone services in the commercial and civil markets is focused on the need to inspect and/or survey equipment, structures, insurance claims, land areas, jobsites and emergencies.

 

Inspection and survey drone services for the industry is estimated to be a $21 billion market. We market through social media and attract buyers to our ecommerce platforms. We maintain a robust presence on Facebook and YouTube where we sponsor competitions and provide education. Sports networks, and sponsors such as NBC, Sky, Liberty Media, Fox Sports, MGM, Hearst, Twitter, ProSieben, Groupe AB and Weibo broadcast and sponsor global events where professional pilots and amateurs compete for prizes and sponsorships. Drone racing is a global sport with chapters, leagues, and pilots and established guidelines, rules and regulations for participation adopted by organizations such as MultiGP, Drone Racing League (“DRL”), IUDRO, DR1 Racing, Rotomatch League, FPVR, and Freespace Drone Racing. Pilots specially design their custom-built aircraft, selecting and customizing frames, motors, propellors and controllers for speed and maneuverability from Rotor Riot. Rotor Riot sponsors a team of six of the leading pilots on the competitive FPV racing circuit, including the 2019 and 2018 Drone Racing League champion. Drone pilots and spectators alike experience real-time flight through their own HMD. In 2015 Fat Shark sponsored the first annual US National Drone Racing Championships held at the California State Fair with a prize of $25,000. Subsequent events featured prizes of up to $1 million. Rotor Riot has a social network of over 215,000 youtube subscribers, 68,000 instagram followers. This gives us quick access to a large number of commercial pilots for beta testing, product enhancements, and remote drone piloting.

 

On November 2, 2020, we acquired Fat Shark through a share purchase agreement with our wholly-owned subsidiary FS Acquisition Corp. Fat Shark was founded in 2007. Its primary business is the sale of consumer electronics products to the first-person view (FPV) sector of the drone industry. Fat Shark’s flagship products are headsets with a built in display (or “goggles”) that allow a pilot to see a real-time video feed from a camera mounted on an aerial platform. Fat Shark is also developing Shark Byte, a digital video downlink to allow for the low latency transmission from the camera on the drone. This technology is designed to replace the analog platforms currently used for FPV.

On May 4, 2021, we closed a firm commitment underwritten public offering (the “Underwritten Offering”) in which it sold an aggregate of 4,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, at a public offering price of $4.00 per share to underwriters, ThinkEquity, a division of Fordham Financial Management, Inc., as representative of the underwriters (the “ThinkEquity”), pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-1, as amended (File No. 333-253491), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), which was declared effective by the Commission on April 29, 2021. The Offering closed on May 4, 2021.

 

On May 7, 2021, we closed the acquisition of Skypersonic, Inc., (“Skypersonic”) a Michigan corporation. The acquisition of Skypersonic was made pursuant to Share Purchase and Liquidity Event Agreements among the Company, Red Cat Skypersonic, Inc., a Nevada corporation and our wholly-owned subsidiary, Giuseppe Santangelo the founder and majority shareholder of Skypersonic, and certain holders of common stock and SAFE agreements representing 97.46% of Skypersonic (the “Sellers”) and Wayne State University Anderson Engineering Ventures Institute. Pursuant to the Agreements, we acquired all of the issued and outstanding share capital of Skypersonic in exchange for issuance of $3,000,000 of our common stock, at the Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) of our common stock on May 7, 2021 of $4.0154 per share. At closing, we issued 857,124 shares common stock to the Sellers.

 

Skypersonic, Inc., is a provider of drone products and software solutions that enable drone inspection flights that can be executed by pilots anywhere in the world. Skypersonic powers drones to “Fly Anywhere” and “Inspect the Impossible”. Its patented software and hardware solutions allow for inspection services in restricted spaces where GPS is not allowed or available. Skycopter is a miniature drone fitted into a cage to avoid damage to inspected areas and the drone. Skyloc is a stand-alone, real time, software system which enables the drone to record and transmit inspection data while being operated from thousands of miles away. Skypersonic’s intellectual property portfolio includes eight US and European patents.

 

On July 18, 2021, The Company entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with ThinkEquity, a division of Fordham Financial Management, Inc., as representative of the underwriters (the “ThinkEquity”), pursuant to which on July 21, 2021, the Company sold to the underwriters in a firm commitment underwritten public offering (the “Offering”) an aggregate of 13,333,334 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), at a public offering price of $4.50 per share. The shares of Common Stock were offered by the Company pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-3, as amended (File No. 333-256216), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), which was declared effective by the Commission on June 14, 2021 (the “Registration Statement”), and a Supplement to the Prospectus contained in the Registration Statement filed with the Commission on July 19, 2021.

 

On August 31, 2021, we closed on the acquisition of Teal Drones Inc., (“Teal”) a Delaware corporation. Our acquisition of Teal was made pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger by and among Red Cat Holdings, Inc., Teal Acquisition I Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Acquisition”) and our wholly-owned subsidiary, and Teal, as amended and restated August 31, 2021 (the “Merger Agreement”).

 

Teal is a leader in commercial and government unmanned aerial vehicle (“UAV”) technology and manufactures the Golden Eagle drone, approved by the US Department of Defense for reconnaissance, public safety, and inspection applications.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, we acquired all of the issued and outstanding share capital of Teal in exchange for $14,000,000 of our common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”) at the Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) of our Common Stock on August 31, 2021 of $2.908 per share, reduced by the amount of Teal debt assumed consisting of approximately $1.67 million payable to Decathlon Alpha IV, L.P., (“DA4”), approximately $771,000 payable to other creditors and approximately $686,000 in working capital deficit, for a net closing date payment of $10,872,753.19. At closing, we issued 3,738,911 shares of our Common Stock (the “Merger Consideration”). On August 31, 2021, the Company, Acquisition, Teal and George Matus, as Shareholder Representative, entered into an Escrow Agreement with Equity Stock Transfer, LLC. Fifteen (15%) percent of the Merger Consideration (the “Escrow Shares”) was deposited in an escrow account as security for working capital adjustments and indemnification obligations for a period of eighteen (18) months under the Merger Agreement. The indemnification obligations feature a basket amount of fifty-thousand dollars ($50,000) before any claim can be asserted and is subject to a cap equal to the value of the Escrow Shares. George Matus, founder of Teal, will continue in the role of Chief Executive Officer of Teal pursuant to an employment agreement entered August 31, 2021.

 

The consideration payable under the Merger Agreement may be increased upon the achievement of certain milestones set forth in the Merger Agreement (the “Earn-Out Consideration”). Additional shares of Common Stock may become issuable by the Company in the event that within twenty-four (24) months following closing of the Merger, Teal realizes certain revenue targets.

Each selling shareholder (the “Selling Shareholders”) of the securities and any of their pledgees, assignees and successors-in-interest may, from time to time, sell any or all of their securities covered hereby on the principal trading market or any other stock exchange, market or trading facility on which the securities are traded or in private transactions. These sales may be at fixed or negotiated prices. A Selling Shareholder may use any one or more of the following methods when selling securities:

 

  ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits purchasers;
     
  block trades in which the broker-dealer will attempt to sell the securities as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;
     
  purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its account;
     
  an exchange distribution in accordance with the rules of the applicable exchange;
     
  privately negotiated transactions;
     
  settlement of short sales;
     
  in transactions through broker-dealers that agree with the Selling Shareholders to sell a specified number of such securities at a stipulated price per security;
     
  through the writing or settlement of options or other hedging transactions, whether through an options exchange or otherwise;
     
  a combination of any such methods of sale; or
     
  any other method permitted pursuant to applicable law.

 

The Selling Shareholders may also sell securities under Rule 144 or any other exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), if available, rather than under this prospectus.

 

Broker-dealers engaged by the Selling Shareholders may arrange for other brokers-dealers to participate in sales. Broker-dealers may receive commissions or discounts from the Selling Shareholders (or, if any broker-dealer acts as agent for the purchaser of securities, from the purchaser) in amounts to be negotiated, but, except as set forth in a supplement to this Prospectus, in the case of an agency transaction not in excess of a customary brokerage commission in compliance with FINRA Rule 2121; and in the case of a principal transaction a markup or markdown in compliance with FINRA Rule 2121.

 

In connection with the sale of the securities or interests therein, the Selling Shareholders may enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions, which may in turn engage in short sales of the securities in the course of hedging the positions they assume. The Selling Shareholders may also sell securities short and deliver these securities to close out their short positions, or loan or pledge the securities to broker-dealers that in turn may sell these securities. The Selling Shareholders may also enter into option or other transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions or create one or more derivative securities which require the delivery to such broker-dealer or other financial institution of securities offered by this prospectus, which securities such broker-dealer or other financial institution may resell pursuant to this prospectus (as supplemented or amended to reflect such transaction).

 

  8  

 

The Selling Shareholders and any broker-dealers or agents that are involved in selling the securities may be deemed to be “underwriters” within the meaning of the Securities Act in connection with such sales. In such event, any commissions received by such broker-dealers or agents and any profit on the resale of the securities purchased by them may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act. Each of the Selling Shareholders has informed the Company that it does not have any written or oral agreement or understanding, directly or indirectly, with any person to distribute the securities.

 

Under applicable rules and regulations under the Exchange Act, any person engaged in the distribution of the resale securities may not simultaneously engage in market making activities with respect to the shares of common stock for the applicable restricted period, as defined in Regulation M, prior to the commencement of the distribution. In addition, the Selling Shareholders will be subject to applicable provisions of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, including Regulation M, which may limit the timing of purchases and sales of the shares of common stock by the Selling Shareholders or any other person. We will make copies of this prospectus available to the Selling Shareholders and have informed them of the need to deliver a copy of this prospectus to each purchaser at or prior to the time of the sale (including by compliance with Rule 172 under the Securities Act).

Item 6.      Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

Our officers and directors are indemnified as provided by the Nevada Revised Statutes and our articles of incorporation and our bylaws.

 

Pursuant to our articles of incorporation and our bylaws, we may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending, or completed action, suit, or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative, (other than an action by or in the right of us) by reason of the fact that he is or was a director, officer, employee, fiduciary or agent of the company or is or was serving at the request of us as a director, officer, employee, fiduciary or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, or other enterprise, against expenses (including attorney fees), judgments, fines, and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably believed to be in our best interests and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his conduct was unlawful. The termination of any action, suit, or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, or conviction or upon a pleas of nolo contenders or its equivalent shall not of itself create a presumption that the person did not act in good faith and in a manner which he reasonably believed to be in our best interests and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had reasonable cause to believe his conduct was unlawful.

 

Our articles of incorporation and bylaws also provide that we may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending, or completed action or suit by or in the right of our company or procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that he is or was a director, officer, employee, or agent of our company or is or was serving at our request as a director, officer, employee, fiduciary or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against expenses (including attorney fees) actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit if he acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in our best interests: but no indemnification shall be made in respect to any claim, issue, or matter as to which such person has been adjudged to be liable for negligence or misconduct in the performance of his duty to us unless and only to the extent that the court in which such action or suit was brought determines upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability, but in view of all circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnification for such expenses which such court deems proper.

 

To the extent that a director, officer, employee, fiduciary or agent of a corporation has been successful on the merits in defense of any action, suit, or proceeding referred to in the preceding two paragraphs or in defense of any claim, issue, or matter therein, he shall be indemnified against expenses (including attorney fees) actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection therewith.

 

The indemnification provided by the provisions described in this section shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those seeking indemnification may be entitled under our articles of incorporation, the bylaws, agreements, vote of the shareholders or disinterested directors, or otherwise, both as to action in his official capacity and as to action in another capacity while holding such office, and shall continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs and personal representatives of such a person.

Item 9.      Undertakings.

 

A. The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

 

(1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

 

(i) To include any prospectus required by section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;

 

(ii) To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) of the Securities Act if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; or

 

(iii) To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;

 

provided, however, that paragraphs (i) and (ii) of this section do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the registrant pursuant to section 13 or section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement.

 

(2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

 

(4) That, for the purpose of determining liability of the registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities: The undersigned registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

  12  

 

 

(i) Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;

 

(ii) Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant or used or referred to by the undersigned registrant;

 

(iii) The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about the undersigned registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant; and

 

(iv) Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by the undersigned registrant to the purchaser.

 

B. The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

C. Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the Nevada Revised Statutes, the Articles of Incorporation of the registrant, the Bylaws of the registrant, indemnification agreements entered into between the registrant and its officers and directors or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant in successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered hereunder, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question of whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
