Note 8 - Subsequent Events


Business Combination


On April 10, 2020, we acquired 100% of the outstanding stock of Trellis Solutions, Inc., or Trellis, a cannabis cultivation management and compliance software company. In exchange for the stock of Trellis, we issued 349,650 shares of common stock, valued at $7.24 per share, the closing price of a share of our common stock on the date of acquisition, or $2.5 million. Additionally, Trellis' selling shareholders are entitled to contingent consideration based on annualized net new recurring revenue, as defined in the agreement, generated in September 2020, to be paid in Akerna stock, if any. We are in the process of valuing the contingent consideration, as well as the fair value of acquired assets and liabilities assumed.


Because the acquisition occurred subsequent to March 31, 2020, no results of operations of Trellis are included in our condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020. It is currently impractical to disclose a preliminary purchase price allocation, value of contingent consideration or pro forma financial information combining both companies as of the earliest period presented in these financial statements as Trellis is currently in the process of closing their books and records.


Paycheck Protection Program Loan


In April 2020, we were granted a loan, or the PPP Loan, from a lender in the aggregate amount of $2,204,600 pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, or the CARES Act. The PPP Loan is evidenced by a promissory note dated April 21, 2020, the Note. The PPP Loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 1.0% per annum, with the first six months of interest deferred from the date of the Note, has an initial term of two years from the date of the Note, and is unsecured and guaranteed by the Small Business Administration. We may prepay up to 20% of the PPP Loan amount at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties. We must pay all accrued interest if we prepay greater than 20% of the PPP Loan amount and the PPP Loan has been sold on the secondary market. The Note provides for customary events of default. The PPP Loan may be accelerated upon the occurrence of an event of default. The PPP Loan may be forgiven in accordance with the terms of the CARES Act. Principal amount of the PPP Loan not forgiven and accrued interest are to be repaid in 18 equal monthly installments beginning seven months from the date of the disbursement of the PPP Loan.


We applied for the PPP Loan and received the proceeds from the PPP Loan prior to the issuance of the recent guidance from the United States Treasury Department and U.S. Small Business Administration on April 23, 2020. We are currently evaluating the impact this guidance has on Akerna and the PPP Loan.
