NOTE 3 – ACQUISITIONS
In May 2014, the Company, through its subsidiary MariMed Advisors Inc., acquired Sigal Consulting LLC from its ownership group which included the current CEO and CFO of the Company (the “Sigal Ownership Group”). The purchase price received by the Sigal Ownership Group was comprised of (i) 31,954,236 shares of common stock valued at approximately $5,913.000, representing 50% of the Company’s outstanding shares on the closing date, (ii) options to purchase three million shares of the Company’s common stock, exercisable over five years with exercise prices ranging from $0.15 to $0.35, and valued at approximately $570,000, and (iii) a 49% ownership interest in MariMed Advisors Inc. The excess of purchase price over the book value of the acquired entity was recorded as goodwill, which was subsequently impaired in full and written down to zero.
In June 2017, the remaining 49% interest of MariMed Advisors Inc. was merged into the Company in exchange for an aggregate 75 million shares of common stock to the Sigal Ownership Group.
In October 2017, the Company acquired the intellectual property, formulations, recipes, proprietary equipment, know-how, and other certain assets of the Betty’s Eddies™ brand of cannabis-infused fruit chews. The purchase price was $140,000 plus subscriptions on 1,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. The shares of common stock associated with these subscriptions were subsequently issued in June 2018. In addition, the selling company shall receive royalties based on a percentage of the Company’s sales of the Betty’s Eddies™ product line, commencing at 25% and decreasing to 2.5% as certain sales thresholds are met. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, such royalties approximated $14,000, of which $5,000 were paid and $9,000 accrued at September 30, 2018.
After applying the total purchase price, which consisted of the cash paid plus the fair value of the subscribed common stock on the date of the transaction, to the assessed fair values of the assets purchased, the transaction gave rise to goodwill of approximately $333,000. At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company reviewed the goodwill for impairment and determined that, based on the present value of future cash flows of the acquired assets, there was no impairment. The goodwill was included in Other Assets in the Company’s financial statements.
In May 2018, the Company issued $600,000 of subscriptions on common stock in exchange for 100% of the ownership interests of iRollie LLC. The Company acquired, among other assets and liabilities, iRollie’s entire product line, service offerings, clients, and intellectual property, and hired its two co-founders. After applying the purchase price to the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, the Company recorded goodwill of approximately $119,000. At September 30, 2018, the Company determined that the goodwill had not been impaired, which was included in Other Assets in the Company’s financial statements.
In July 2018, the Company entered into a purchase agreement to acquire 100% of the ownership interests of AgriMed Industries of PA LLC, an entity that holds a license from the state of Pennsylvania for the cultivation of cannabis (“AgriMed”). AgriMed presently develops cannabis products that are wholesaled to medical marijuana dispensaries within the state. The purchase price is comprised of $8,000,000, a portion of which may be in the form of the Company’s common stock at the seller’s option, and the assumption of certain liabilities of AgriMed not to exceed $700,000. As required by state law, and in order to effectuate the transaction, the parties have applied for legislative approval of the change in AgriMed’s ownership with respect to the Company’s acquisition. The Company expects to receive written evidence thereof prior to the end of the 2018 fiscal year, at which time the Company will consolidate the operations of AgriMed in accordance with GAAP.
