ACAMAR PARTNERS ACQUISITION : Management's Discussion And Analysis Of Financial Condition And Results Of Operations (form 10-K)

03/27/2020 | 03:35pm EST

The following discussion and analysis of the Company's financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our audited financial statements and the notes related thereto which are included in "Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data" of this Annual Report on Form 10-K. Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of many factors, including those set forth under "Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements," "Item 1A. Risk Factors" and elsewhere in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.




Overview



We are a blank check company formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on November 7, 2018 for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar Business Combination with one or more target businesses. We intend to effectuate our Business Combination using cash from the proceeds of our Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, our capital stock, debt or a combination of cash, stock and debt.

The issuance of additional shares of our stock in a Business Combination:



   ·  may significantly dilute the equity interest of investors, which dilution
      would increase if the anti-dilution provisions in the Class B common stock
      resulted in the issuance of Class A shares on a greater than one-to-one
      basis upon conversion of the Class B common stock;
   ·  may subordinate the rights of holders of common stock if preferred stock is
      issued with rights senior to those afforded our common stock;
   ·  could cause a change of control if a substantial number of shares of our
      common stock are issued, which may affect, among other things, our ability
      to use our net operating loss carry forwards, if any, and could result in
      the resignation or removal of our present officers and directors;
   ·  may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change of control of us by
      diluting the stock ownership or voting rights of a person seeking to obtain
      control of us; and
   ·  may adversely affect prevailing market prices for our Class A common stock
      and/or warrants.



Similarly, if we issue debt securities or otherwise incur significant debt to bank or other lenders or the owners of a target, it could result in:



   ·  default and foreclosure on our assets if our operating revenues after an
      initial business combination are insufficient to repay our debt
      obligations;
   ·  acceleration of our obligations to repay the indebtedness even if we make
      all principal and interest payments when due if we breach certain covenants
      that require the maintenance of certain financial ratios or reserves
      without a waiver or renegotiation of that covenant;
   ·  our immediate payment of all principal and accrued interest, if any, if the
      debt is payable on demand;
   ·  our inability to obtain necessary additional financing if the debt contains
      covenants restricting our ability to obtain such financing while the debt
      is outstanding;
   ·  our inability to pay dividends on our common stock;
   ·  using a substantial portion of our cash flow to pay principal and interest
      on our debt, which will reduce the funds available for dividends on our
      common stock if declared, expenses, capital expenditures, acquisitions and
      other general corporate purposes;
   ·  limitations on our flexibility in planning for and reacting to changes in
      our business and in the industry in which we operate;
   ·  increased vulnerability to adverse changes in general economic, industry
      and competitive conditions and adverse changes in government regulation;
      and
   ·  limitations on our ability to borrow additional amounts for expenses,
      capital expenditures, acquisitions, debt service requirements, execution of
      our strategy and other purposes and other disadvantages compared to our
      competitors who have less debt.

We expect to continue to incur significant costs in the pursuit of our acquisition plans. We cannot assure you that our plans to complete a Business Combination will be successful.



Results of Operations


We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities from inception to December 31, 2019 were organizational activities, those necessary to prepare for the Initial Public Offering, described below, and identifying a target company for a Business Combination. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after the completion of our Business Combination. We generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on marketable securities held in the Trust Account. We incur expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses in connection with completing a Business Combination.

For the year ended December 31, 2019, we had net income of $3,478,202, which consisted of interest income on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $5,531,557, offset by operating costs of $932,834 and a provision for income taxes of $1,120,521.

For the period from November 7, 2018 (inception) through December 31, 2018, we had net loss of $2,750, which consisted of operating costs.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Until the consummation of the Initial Public Offering, the Company's only source of liquidity was an initial purchase of Class B common stock by the Sponsor and an advance and loans from our Sponsor.

On February 26, 2019, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 30,000,000 Units at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $300,000,000. Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the sale of 6,000,000 Private Placement Warrants to the Sponsor at a price of $1.50 per unit, generating gross proceeds of $9,000,000.

On April 9, 2019, in connection with the underwriters' election to partially exercise of their option to purchase additional Units, we consummated the sale of an additional 557,322 Units and the sale of an additional 74,310 Private Placement Warrants, generating total gross proceeds of $5,684,685.

Following the Initial Public Offering, including the exercise of the option to purchase additional Units and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, a total of $305,573,220 was placed in the Trust Account. We incurred $17,437,018 in transaction costs, including $6,111,465 of underwriting fees, $10,695,063 of deferred underwriting fees and $630,490 of other costs, inclusive of $111,465 in cash underwriting fees and $195,063 of additional deferred underwriting fees incurred upon the underwriters' election to partially exercise their option to purchase additional Units on April 9, 2019.

For the year ended December 31, 2019, cash used in operating activities was $2,055,329, resulting primarily from net income of $3,478,202 and interest earned on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $5,531,557. Changes in operating assets and liabilities used $1,974 of cash from operating activities.

For the period from November 7, 2018 (inception) through December 31, 2018, cash used in operating activities was $2,570, which resulted from our net loss of $2,570.

As of December 31, 2019, we had cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $309,840,375. Interest income on the balance in the Trust Account may be used by us to pay taxes. During the year ended December 31, 2019, we withdrew approximately $1,264,000 of interest earned on the Trust Account to pay for our income tax obligations. We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the Trust Account (which interest shall be net of taxes payable and less deferred underwriting commissions) to complete our Business Combination. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our Business Combination, the remaining proceeds held in the Trust Account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.



  53





As of December 31, 2019, we had $1,600,833 of cash held outside of the Trust Account. We will use these funds primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, structure, negotiate and complete a Business Combination, and to pay taxes to the extent the interest earned on the Trust Account is not sufficient to pay our taxes. A portion of these funds will also be used to pay our obligations pursuant to the administrative services agreement described below.

In order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds as may be required. If we complete a Business Combination, we would repay such loaned amounts. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, we may use a portion of the working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay such loaned amounts but no proceeds from our Trust Account would be used for such repayment. Up to $2,000,000 of such loans may be convertible into units identical to the Placement Units, at a price of $10.00 per unit at the option of the lender.

We do not believe we will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating our business. However, if our estimate of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating a Business Combination are less than the actual amount necessary to do so, we may have insufficient funds available to operate our business prior to our Business Combination. Moreover, we may need to obtain additional financing either to complete our Business Combination or because we become obligated to redeem a significant number of our public shares upon consummation of our Business Combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such Business Combination. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, we would only complete such financing simultaneously with the completion of our Business Combination. If we are unable to complete our Business Combination because we do not have sufficient funds available to us, we will be forced to cease operations and liquidate the Trust Account. In addition, following our Business Combination, if cash on hand is insufficient, we may need to obtain additional financing in order to meet our obligations.




Going Concern



The Company has until February 26, 2021 to consummate a business combination. It is uncertain that the Company will be able to consummate a business combination by this time. If a business combination is not consummated by this date, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution of the Company. Management has determined that the mandatory liquidation, should a business combination not occur, and potential subsequent dissolution raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should the Company be required to liquidate after February 26, 2021.

Off-balance sheet financing arrangements

We have no obligations, assets or liabilities, which would be considered off-balance sheet arrangements as of December 31, 2019. We do not participate in transactions that create relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, often referred to as variable interest entities, which would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements. We have not entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements, established any special purpose entities, guaranteed any debt or commitments of other entities, or purchased any non-financial assets.



Contractual obligations


We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations or long-term liabilities, other than an agreement to pay an affiliate of the Sponsor a monthly fee of $37,000 for office space, administrative support and salaries to be paid to employees of such affiliate for due diligence and related services in connection with the Company's search for a target company (although no salaries or fees will be paid from the monthly fee to members of the Company's management team). We began incurring these fees on February 21, 2019 and will continue to incur these fees monthly until the earlier of the completion of the Business Combination and the Company's liquidation.



  54





The underwriters are entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per Unit, or $10,695,063 in the aggregate. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that we complete a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement. Of such amount, up to approximately $0.10 per Unit, or up to $3,055,732, may be paid to third parties not participating in Initial Public Offering (but who are members of FINRA) that assist us in consummating a Business Combination. The election to make such payments to third parties will be solely at our discretion, and such third parties will be selected by us in its sole discretion.




Critical Accounting Policies



The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. We have not identified any critical accounting policies.

Recent accounting pronouncements

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our financial statements.
