NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

September 30, 2019

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS

 

Gordon Pointe Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”), is a blank check company incorporated in Delaware on April 12, 2017. The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or assets (a “Business Combination”). Although the Company is not limited to a particular industry or geographic region for purposes of consummating a Business Combination, the Company is focusing on businesses in the financial services technology sector or related financial services or technology sectors.

 

The Company’ subsidiaries are comprised of GPAQ Acquisition Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Holdings”), GPAQ Acquiror Merger Sub, Inc. a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holdings (“Acquiror Merger Sub”) and GPAQ Company Merger Sub, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holdings (“Company Merger Sub”).

 

All activity through September 30, 2019 relates to the Company’s formation, the Company’s initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”) of 12,500,000 units, the simultaneous sale of 4,900,000 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) in a private placement (the “Private Placement”) to Gordon Pointe Management, LLC (the “Sponsor”), the Company’s search for a target business with which to complete a Business Combination and the proposed acquisition of HOF Village, LLC (“HOFV”) (see Note 5).

 

Pursuant to the Company’s Amended and Stated Certificate of Incorporation, the Company had until July 30, 2019 (the “Initial Date”) to complete a Business Combination (the “Combination Period”). On July 26, 2019, the Company held a special meeting of the stockholders of the Company at which the stockholders approved, among other things, a proposal to amend the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Extension Amendment”) to extend the deadline to complete a Business Combination from July 30, 2019 to October 31, 2019 (the “Extension”), plus an option for the Company to further extend such date up to three times (the latest such date being referred to as the “Extended Date”), each by an additional 30 days.

 

The Company’s Sponsor agreed to contribute to the Company as a loan (each loan being referred to herein as a “Contribution”) $0.10 for each share of the Company’s common stock issued in its Initial Public Offering (each, a “Public Share”) that did not redeem in connection with the stockholder vote to approve the Extension Amendment, plus, if the Company elects to further extend the deadline to complete a Business Combination beyond October 31, 2019, $0.033 for each 30-day period, or portion thereof, up to three additional 30-day periods. On July 26, 2019, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note (the “Promissory Note”) to the Sponsor in the aggregate amount of $1,105,354 in order to fund the extension payment. The Promissory Note is non-interest bearing and repayable by the Company to the Sponsor upon consummation of the Company’s Business Combination. The loans will be forgiven if the Company is unable to consummate a Business Combination except to the extent of any funds held outside of the Trust Account. The Sponsor will have the sole discretion whether to continue extending for additional 30-day periods until the Extended Date and, if the Sponsor determines not to continue extending for additional 30-day periods, its obligation to make additional Contributions will terminate.

 

In connection with the approval of the Extension Amendment, stockholders elected to redeem an aggregate of 1,446,461 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock. As a result, an aggregate of approximately $14,962,645 (or approximately $10.34 per share) was removed from the Company’s Trust Account to pay such stockholders and 11,053,539 shares of Class A common stock are now issued and outstanding.

 

On October 29, 2019, the Company elected to extend the deadline to complete a Business Combination from October 31, 2019 to November 30, 2019. In connection with such 30-day extension, the Company contributed $0.033 for each of the Company’s public shares outstanding, for an aggregate contribution of $364,767, into the Trust Account. The Company issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor in the aggregate amount of $364,767 in order to fund the extension payment (see Note 8).

 

Nasdaq Notification

 

On November 4, 2019, the Company received a written notice (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company was not in compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(3) (the “Minimum Public Holders Rule”), which requires the Company to have at least 300 public holders for continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market.  The Notice is only a notification of deficiency, not of imminent delisting, and has no current effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s securities on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Notice states that the Company has 45 calendar days to submit a plan to regain compliance with the Minimum Public Holders Rule.  The Company intends to submit a plan to regain compliance with the Minimum Public Holders Rule within the required timeframe.  If NASDAQ accepts the Company’s plan, NASDAQ may grant the Company an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the date of the Notice to evidence compliance with the Minimum Public Holders Rule.  If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s plan, the Company will have the opportunity to appeal the decision in front of a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.

 

NOTE 2. LIQUIDITY

 

As of September 30, 2019, the Company had $91,539 in its operating bank accounts, $115,904,495 in marketable securities held in the Trust Account to be used for a Business Combination or to repurchase or redeem stock in connection therewith and a working capital deficit of $391,834, which excludes franchise and income taxes payable of $118,424, of which such amounts will be paid from interest earned on the Trust Account. As of September 30, 2019, approximately $3,158,000 of the amount on deposit in the Trust Account represented interest income, which is available to pay the Company’s tax obligations. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company withdrew $796,234 of interest from the Trust Account in order to pay its franchise and income tax obligations.

Until the consummation of a Business Combination, the Company will be using the funds not held in the Trust Account for identifying and evaluating prospective acquisition candidates, performing due diligence on prospective target businesses, paying for travel expenditures, selecting target businesses to acquire, and structuring, negotiating and consummating the Business Combination.

 

In April 2019, the Sponsor committed to provide an aggregate of $410,000 in loans to the Company to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, as evidenced by a convertible promissory note dated June 18, 2019. On September 27, 2019, the Company issued a convertible promissory note to the Sponsor in the aggregate amount of $490,000 to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination. As of September 30, 2019, an aggregate of $445,545 was outstanding under the convertible promissory notes.

 

Such loans, to the extent advanced, are non-interest bearing, unsecured and will only be repaid upon the completion of a Business Combination. The loans may also be convertible into common stock purchase warrants at a purchase price of $1.00 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants, including as to exercise price, exercisability and exercise period. 

  

The Company may raise additional capital through loans or additional investments from the Sponsor or its stockholders, officers, directors, or third parties. The Company’s officers and directors and the Sponsor may, but are not obligated to (except as described above), loan the Company funds, from time to time, in whatever amount they deem reasonable in their sole discretion, to meet the Company’s working capital needs.

 

The Company does not believe it will need to raise additional funds in order to meet expenditures required for operating its business. Neither the Sponsor, nor any of the stockholders, officers or directors, or third parties are under any obligation to advance funds to, or invest in, the Company, except for the convertible promissory notes discussed above. Accordingly, the Company may not be able to obtain additional financing. If the Company is unable to raise additional capital, it may be required to take additional measures to conserve liquidity, which could include, but not necessarily be limited to curtailing operations, suspending the pursuit of a potential transaction and reducing overhead expenses. The Company cannot provide any assurance that new financing will be available to it on commercially acceptable terms, if at all. Even if the Company can obtain sufficient financing or raise additional capital, it only has until the Extended Date to consummate a Business Combination. There is no assurance that they will be able to do so prior to the Extended Date.

 

NOTE 3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Certain information or footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes necessary for a comprehensive presentation of financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of a normal recurring nature, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results and cash flows for the periods presented.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 as filed with the SEC on March 18, 2019, which contains the audited financial statements and notes thereto. The financial information as of December 31, 2018 is derived from the audited financial statements presented in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. The interim results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019 or for any future interim periods.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.

 

Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the consolidated financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.

 

Marketable securities held in Trust Account

 

At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the assets held in the Trust Account were substantially held in U.S. Treasury Bills. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company withdrew $796,234 of interest income to pay its franchise and income tax obligations.

 

Net loss per common share

 

Net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. The Company applies the two-class method in calculating earnings per share. An aggregate of up to 9,965,744 and 11,581,723 shares of common stock subject to possible redemption at September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively, which are not currently redeemable and are not redeemable at fair value, have been excluded from the calculation of basic net loss per share since such shares, if redeemed, only participate in their pro rata share of the Trust Account earnings. The Company has not considered the effect of warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement to purchase 17,400,000 shares of Class A common stock in the calculation of diluted net loss per share, since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events. As a result, diluted net loss per common share is the same as basic net loss per common share for the periods presented.

  

Reconciliation of net loss per common share

 

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

 

   Three Months Ended
September 30,
  

Nine Month Ended

September 30,

 
   2019   2018   2019   2018 
Net income (loss)  $(30,315)  $346,395   $902,908   $670,005 
Less: Income attributable to common stock subject to possible redemption   (468,725)   (445,137)   (1,526,833)   (1,064,409)
Adjusted net loss  $(499,040)  $(98,742)  $(623,925)  $(394,404)
                     
Weighted average shares outstanding, basic and diluted   4,067,475    4,033,550    4,060,633    3,923,327 
                     
Basic and diluted net loss per common share  $(0.12)  $(0.02)  $(0.15)  $(0.10)

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

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

   

NOTE 4. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

Advances from Related Party

 

In March 2019, the Sponsor advanced an aggregate of $164,850 for working capital purposes, of which such amount was repaid during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. As of September 30, 2019, there were no outstanding advances.

Convertible Promissory Notes – Related Party

 

On June 18, 2019, the Company entered into a promissory note with the Sponsor, pursuant to which the Company can borrow up to an aggregate amount of $410,000 to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination. On September 27, 2019, the Company entered into a second promissory note with the Sponsor, pursuant to which the Company can borrow up to an aggregate amount of $490,000 to finance transaction costs in connection with the Business Combination.

 

In addition, on July 26, 2019, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor, pursuant to which the Company borrowed an aggregate principal amount of $1,105,354 in order to fund the extension loan into the Trust Account.

 

These notes are non-interest bearing, unsecured and due to be paid upon the completion of a Business Combination. Up to $1,500,000 of the loans may be converted into warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants, including as to exercise price, exercisability and exercise period. 

 

As of September 30, 2019, there was an aggregate of $1,550,899 outstanding under the promissory notes.

 

On October 29, 2019, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor, pursuant to which the Company borrowed an aggregate principal amount of $364,767 in order to fund the extension payment to the Trust Account (see Note 8).

 

Administrative Services Agreement

 

The Company entered into an agreement whereby, commencing on January 30, 2018 through the earlier of the consummation of a Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company will pay an affiliate of the Sponsor a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space, utilities and administrative support. For the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company incurred $30,000 in fees for these services. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company incurred $90,000 and $80,000, respectively, in fees for these services. At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, an aggregate of $60,000 in administrative fees are included in accounts payable and accrued expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. 

 

Related Party Loans

 

In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor, the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to (other than the Sponsor’s commitment to provide the Company an aggregate of $900,000 in loans in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination (see Note 4)), loan the Company funds from time to time or at any time, as may be required (the “Working Capital Loans”). Each Working Capital Loan would be evidenced by a promissory note. The Working Capital Loans would either be paid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the holder’s discretion, up to $1,500,000 of the Working Capital Loans may be converted into warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants.

 

NOTE 5. COMMITMENTS

 

Director Compensation

 

The Company has agreed to pay each of its independent directors an annual retainer of $20,000 (pro-rated for interim periods of service) for their service as members of the Company’s Board, for which, in addition to general matters of corporate governance and oversight, the Company expects its Board members to assist the Company in the identification and evaluation of industries and particular businesses that are, in the reasonable judgment of the Board, suitable acquisition targets for the Company, as well as assisting the Company in the review and analysis of alternative Business Combinations. In addition, the Company has agreed to pay each independent director a telephonic meeting fee of $1,000 or in-person meeting fee of $1,500 for each meeting attended by such independent director. The Company has also agreed to pay the Chairperson of the Audit Committee an annual retainer of $7,500 and the Chairperson of the Compensation Committee an annual retainer of $5,000. The fees will be deferred and become payable only if the Company consummates a Business Combination. If a Business Combination does not occur, the Company will not be required to pay these contingent fees, therefore, these amounts are not accrued in the accompanying financial statements.

Registration Rights

 

Pursuant to a registration rights agreement entered into on January 24, 2018, the holders of the Company’s Class F common stock (the “Founder Shares”), Private Placement Warrants (and their underlying securities) and the warrants that may be issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans (and their underlying securities) are entitled to registration rights. The holders of a majority of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of a Business Combination and rights to require the Company to register for resale such securities pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act. However, the registration rights agreement provides that the Company will not permit any registration statement filed under the Securities Act to become effective until termination of the applicable lock-up period. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

 

Underwriters Agreement

 

The underwriters are entitled to a deferred fee of three and one-half percent (3.5%) of the gross proceeds of the Initial Public Offering, or $4,375,000. The deferred fee will be paid in cash upon the closing of a Business Combination from the amounts held in the Trust Account, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement. The deferred fee will be forfeited by the underwriters solely in the event that the Company fails to complete a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

 

Deferred Legal Fee 

 

In connection with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company became obligated to pay its attorneys a deferred legal fee of $72,500 upon consummation of a Business Combination. Accordingly, the Company recorded $72,500 as deferred legal payable in the accompanying balance sheets. The deferred fee will be forfeited in the event that the Company fails to complete a Business Combination.

 

Merger Agreement

 

On September 16, 2019, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among the Company, Holdings, Acquiror Merger Sub, Company Merger Sub (together with Acquiror Merger Sub, the “Merger Subs”), HOF Village, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“HOFV”) and HOF Village Newco, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of HOFV (“Newco”).

 

The Merger Agreement provides for a business combination transaction pursuant to which: (i) Acquiror Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company, with the Company continuing as the surviving entity and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holdings and with stockholders of the Company receiving substantially equivalent securities of Holdings (the “Acquiror Merger”), and (ii) Company Merger Sub will be merged with and into Newco, with Newco continuing as the surviving entity and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holdings and with the members of Newco receiving shares of common stock of Holdings (the “Company Merger”, and together with the Acquiror Merger, the “Mergers”).

 

The value of the aggregate merger consideration (the “Company Merger Consideration”) to be paid pursuant to the Merger Agreement to the holders of Newco Units as of immediately prior to the Effective Time (the “Newco Holders”) will be an amount equal to: (i) the aggregate capital contributions of the members of HOFV as set forth in a certificate of HOFV delivered at least five (5) days prior to the Closing Date (the “Closing Date Company Contributed Capital Amount”), multiplied by (ii) the Exchange Ratio of 1.2, divided by (iii) the Per Share Price of $10.00. The Company Merger Consideration will be paid in shares of Holdings common stock (the “Holdings Common Stock”). 

 

The Mergers will be consummated subject to the deliverables and provisions as further described in the Merger Agreement.

Class A Common Stock — The Company is authorized to issue 40,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Company’s Class A common stock are entitled to one vote for each share. At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, there were 1,087,795 and 927,712 shares of common stock issued and outstanding, excluding an aggregate of up to 9,965,744 and 11,572,288 shares of common stock subject to possible redemption, respectively.

 

Class F Common Stock — The Company is authorized to issue 5,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Company’s Class F common stock are entitled to one vote for each share. At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, there were 3,125,000 shares of common stock issued and outstanding. 

 

NOTE 7. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS 

 

The Company follows the guidance in ASC 820 for its financial assets and liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value at each reporting period, and non-financial assets and liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value at least annually.

 

The fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities reflects management’s estimate of amounts that the Company would have received in connection with the sale of the assets or paid in connection with the transfer of the liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In connection with measuring the fair value of its assets and liabilities, the Company seeks to maximize the use of observable inputs (market data obtained from independent sources) and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs (internal assumptions about how market participants would price assets and liabilities). The following fair value hierarchy is used to classify assets and liabilities based on the observable inputs and unobservable inputs used in order to value the assets and liabilities:

 

  Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. An active market for an asset or liability is a market in which transactions for the asset or liability occur with sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis.
     
  Level 2: Observable inputs other than Level 1 inputs. Examples of Level 2 inputs include quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities and quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.
     
  Level 3: Unobservable inputs based on our assessment of the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

 

The following table presents information about the Company’s assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis at September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value:

NOTE 8. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

The Company evaluated subsequent events and transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date up to the date that the condensed consolidated financial statements were issued. Other than as described below, the Company did not identify any subsequent events that would have required adjustment or disclosure in the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

On October 29, 2019, the Company elected to extend the deadline to complete a Business Combination from October 31, 2019 to November 30, 2019. In connection with such 30-day extension, the Sponsor contributed to the Company $0.033 for each of the Company’s public shares outstanding, for an aggregate contribution of $364,767, which amount was deposited into the Trust Account.

 

In connection with the extension, on October 29, 2019, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor, pursuant to which the Company borrowed an aggregate principal amount of $364,767 in order to fund the 30-day extension.

  

On November 4, 2019, the Company received a Notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of Nasdaq indicating that the Company was not in compliance with the Minimum Public Holders Rule, which requires the Company to have at least 300 public holders for continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market.  The Company intends to submit a plan to regain compliance with the Minimum Public Holders Rule within the required timeframe.

Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.

 

Cautionary note regarding forward-looking statements

 

All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q including, without limitation, statements under this “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” regarding the Company’s financial position, business strategy and the plans and objectives of management for future operations, are forward-looking statements. When used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend” and similar expressions, as they relate to us or the Company’s management, identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs of management, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company’s management. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors detailed in our filings with the SEC. All subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on the Company’s behalf are qualified in their entirety by this paragraph.

 

Overview

 

We are a blank check company incorporated on April 12, 2017 as a Delaware corporation and formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (a “Business Combination”). We completed our Initial Public Offering on January 30, 2018.

 

 

Since the date of the Initial Public Offering, we have been contacting businesses, intermediaries and other third parties to evaluate a number of targets that may be candidates for a possible Business Combination. Although we will continue to review a number of opportunities to enter into a Business Combination, we are not able to determine at this time whether we will complete a Business Combination within the allotted 21-month timeframe. We intend to effectuate our initial Business Combination using cash from the proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement, our capital stock, debt or a combination of cash, stock and debt.

 

Recent Developments

 

On July 26, 2019, in connection with the approval of the Extension Amendment, stockholders elected to redeem an aggregate of 1,446,461 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock. As a result, an aggregate of approximately $14,962,645 (or approximately $10.34 per share) was removed from the Company’s Trust Account to pay such stockholders and 11,053,539 shares of Class A common stock are now issued and outstanding.

 

On September 16, 2019, we entered into the Merger Agreement with Holdings, Acquiror Merger Sub, Company Merger Sub, HOFV, and Newco. See Note 5 in Item 1 above for a description of the Merger Agreement.

 

On October 29, 2019, we elected to extend the deadline to complete a Business Combination from October 31, 2019 to November 30, 2019. In connection with such 30-day extension, the Sponsor contributed to us $0.033 for each of our public shares outstanding, for an aggregate contribution of $364,767, which amount was deposited into the Trust Account.

 

In connection with the extension, on October 29, 2019, we issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor, pursuant to which we borrowed an aggregate principal amount of $364,767 in order to fund the 30-day extension.

 

Results of Operations

 

Our entire activity from inception up to January 30, 2018 was in preparation for our Initial Public Offering. Since the consummation of our Initial Public Offering, our activity has been limited to the evaluation of Business Combination candidates and the proposed acquisition of HOFV. We will not be generating any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our initial Business Combination. We are incurring expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses.

Through September 30, 2019, we withdrew $796,234 of funds from the interest earned on the Trust Account to pay our franchise and income tax obligations.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, cash used in operating activities was $1,239,797. Net income of $902,908 was offset by interest earned on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $2,140,094, an unrealized gain on marketable securities held in our Trust Account of $21,155 and a deferred tax provision of $4,443. Changes in operating assets and liabilities provided $14,101 of cash from operating activities.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, cash used in operating activities was $421,485. Net income of $670,005 was offset by interest earned on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $1,434,288 and an unrealized gain on marketable securities held in our Trust Account of $288. Changes in operating assets and liabilities provided $343,086 of cash from operating activities.

 

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the Trust Account (less deferred underwriting fees) to complete our initial Business Combination. We may withdraw interest from the Trust Account to pay franchise and income taxes. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our initial 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.

 

As of September 30, 2019, we had cash of $91,539 held outside the Trust Account. We are using the funds held outside the Trust Account primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete a Business Combination.

 

We have agreed to pay each of our independent directors an annual retainer of $20,000 (pro-rated for interim periods of service) for their service as members of our Board, for which, in addition to general matters of corporate governance and oversight, we expect our Board members to assist us in the identification and evaluation of industries and particular businesses that are, in the reasonable judgment of the Board, suitable acquisition targets for us, as well as assisting us in the review and analysis of alternative Business Combinations. In addition, we have agreed to pay each independent director a telephonic meeting fee of $1,000 or in-person meeting fee of $1,500 for each meeting attended by such independent director. We have also agreed to pay the Chairperson of the Audit Committee an annual retainer of $7,500 and the Chairperson of the Compensation Committee an annual retainer of $5,000. All such fees will be deferred and become payable on the consummation of a Business Combination.

 

In order to fund working capital deficiencies and/or finance transaction costs in connection with an initial 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 our initial Business Combination, we would repay such loaned amounts. In the event that our initial 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 $1,500,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants, at a price of $1.00 per warrant at the option of the lender. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants, including as to exercise price, exercisability and exercise period.

In April 2019, the Sponsor committed to provide us an aggregate of $410,000 in loans to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, as evidenced by a convertible promissory note dated June 18, 2019. Additionally, on September 27, 2019, we issued the Sponsor a convertible promissory note in the aggregate amount of $490,000 to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination. On July 26, 2019, we issued an unsecured convertible promissory note to the Sponsor, pursuant to which we borrowed an aggregate principal amount of $1,105,354 in order to fund the extension loan into the Trust Account. The loans are non-interest bearing, unsecured and will only be repaid upon the completion of a Business Combination. Up to $1,500,000 of the loans are convertible into warrants at a purchase price of $1.00 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants, including as to exercise price, exercisability and exercise period. As of September 30, 2019, there was $1,550,899 outstanding under the promissory notes. 

 

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 estimates of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating an initial 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 completion 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 initial 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 initial Business Combination, if cash on hand is insufficient, we may need to obtain additional financing in order to meet our obligations.

 

Off-balance sheet financing arrangements

 

We have no obligations, assets or liabilities, which would be considered off-balance sheet arrangements as of September 30, 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 our Sponsor a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space, utilities and administrative support provided to the Company. We began incurring these fees on January 30, 2018 and will continue to incur these fees monthly until the earlier of the completion of the Business Combination and the Company’s liquidation.

  

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with GAAP 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 identified the following critical accounting policies:

 

Common Stock subject to possible redemption

 

We account for our common stock subject to possible conversion in accordance with the guidance in ASC Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Common stock subject to mandatory redemption is classified as a liability instrument and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stocks 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, common stocks are classified as stockholders’ equity. Our common stocks feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of our control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, common stock subject to possible redemption is presented at redemption value as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity section of our condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

Net loss per common share

 

We apply the two-class method in calculating earnings per share. Common stock subject to possible redemption which is not currently redeemable and is not redeemable at fair value, has been excluded from the calculation of basic net loss per common share since such shares, if redeemed, only participate in their pro rata share of the Trust Account earnings. Our net income is adjusted for the portion of income that is attributable to common stock subject to possible redemption, as these shares only participate in the earnings of the Trust Account and not our income or losses.

Recent accounting pronouncements

 

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

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

Following the consummation of our Offering, we invested the funds held in the Trust Account in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act, which invest solely in United States Treasuries. Due to the short-term nature of the money market fund’s investments, we do not believe that there will be an associated material exposure to interest rate risk.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in company reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

As required by Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of September 30, 2019. Based upon their evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) were effective.

 

Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting that has occurred during the fiscal quarter of 2019 covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
