NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS

 

Chardan Healthcare Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) is a blank check company incorporated in Delaware on November 1, 2017. The Company was formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, recapitalization, reorganization or other similar business transaction with one or more businesses or entities (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 intends to focus on businesses operating in North America in the healthcare industry.

 

At September 30, 2019, the Company had not yet commenced operations. All activity through September 30, 2019 relates to the Company’s formation, its initial public offering (“Initial Public Offering”), identifying a target for a Business Combination and activities in connection with the proposed acquisition of BiomX Ltd. (“BiomX”) (see Note 7).

 

The Company has one subsidiary, CHAC Merger Sub Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company incorporated under the laws of the State of Israel, which was formed solely to effectuate the Merger described in Note 7.

 

The registration statement for the Initial Public Offering was declared effective on December 13, 2018. On December 18, 2018 the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 7,000,000 units (“Units” and, with respect to the common stock included in the Units sold, the “Public Shares”) at $10.00 per Unit, generating total gross proceeds of $70,000,000, which is described in Note 4.

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the sale of an aggregate of 2,900,000 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $0.40 per warrant in a private placement to Mountain Wood, LLC, an affiliate of Chardan Investments, LLC (the “Sponsor”), generating total gross proceeds of $1,160,000, which is described in Note 5.

 

Transaction costs amounted to $783,566, consisting of $500,000 of underwriting fees and $283,566 of offering costs. In addition, $896,729 of cash was held outside of the Trust Account (defined below) and was available for working capital purposes.

 

Following the closing of the Initial Public Offering on December 18, 2018, an amount of $70,000,000 ($10.00 per Unit) from the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants was placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”) and invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), with a maturity of 180 days or less or in any open-ended investment company that holds itself out as a money market fund selected by the Company meeting the conditions of Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act, as determined by the Company, until the earlier of: (i) the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) the distribution of the funds in the Trust Account to the Company’s shareholders, as described below.

 

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. The Company’s initial Business Combination must be with one or more target businesses that together have a fair market value equal to at least 80% of the balance in the Trust Account (excluding taxes payable on income earned on the Trust Account) at the time of the signing of an agreement to enter into a Business Combination. The Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-Business Combination company owns or acquires 50% or more of the outstanding voting securities of the target or otherwise acquires a controlling interest in the target sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, or the Investment Company Act. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully effect a Business Combination.

 

The Company will provide its stockholders with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a stockholder meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek stockholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion. The stockholders will be entitled to redeem their shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then on deposit in the Trust Account ($10.00 per share, plus any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income tax obligations). There will be no redemption rights upon the completion of a Business Combination with respect to the Company’s warrants.

The Company will proceed with a Business Combination if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 upon such consummation of a Business Combination and, if the Company seeks stockholder approval, a majority of the outstanding shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. If a stockholder vote is not required by law and the Company does not decide to hold a stockholder vote for business or other legal reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If, however, stockholder approval of the transaction is required by law, or the Company decides to obtain stockholder approval for business or other legal reasons, the Company will offer to redeem shares in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules and not pursuant to the tender offer rules. Additionally, each public stockholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction. If the Company seeks stockholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the Company’s Sponsor and other initial stockholders (collectively, the “Initial Stockholders”) have agreed to (a) vote their Founder Shares (as defined in Note 6) and any Public Shares held by them in favor of a Business Combination and (b) not to convert any shares (including Founder Shares) in connection with a stockholder vote to approve a Business Combination or sell any such shares to the Company in a tender offer in connection with a Business Combination.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company seeks stockholder approval of a Business Combination and the Company does not conduct redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules, a stockholder, together with any affiliate of such stockholder or any other person with whom such stockholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined in Section 13(d)(3) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), will be restricted from redeeming their shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 20% of the Public Shares.

 

The Company will have until December 18, 2020 to consummate a Business Combination (the “Combination Period”). If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but no more than five business days thereafter, redeem 100% of the outstanding Public Shares, at a per share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest earned (net of taxes payable), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish public stockholders’ rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any), subject to applicable law, and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholders and the Company’s board of directors, proceed to commence a voluntary liquidation and thereby a formal dissolution of the Company, subject in each case to its obligations to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of applicable law. The proceeds deposited in the Trust Account could, however, become subject to claims of creditors. Therefore, the actual per-share redemption amount could be less than $10.00 per Unit.

 

The Initial Stockholders have agreed to (i) waive their redemption rights with respect to Founder Shares and any Public Shares they may acquire during or after the Initial Public Offering in connection with the consummation of a Business Combination, (ii) to waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to their Founder Shares if the Company fails to consummate a Business Combination within the Combination Period and (iii) not to propose an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation that would affect the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of its Public Shares if the Company does not complete a Business Combination, unless the Company provides the public stockholders an opportunity to redeem their Public Shares in conjunction with any such amendment. However, the Initial Stockholders will be entitled to liquidating distributions with respect to any Public Shares acquired if the Company fails to consummate a Business Combination or liquidates within the Combination Period.

 

In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor has agreed to be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a vendor for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has discussed entering into a transaction agreement, reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account to below $10.00 per share, except as to any claims by a third party who executed a waiver of any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to any monies held in the Trust Account or to any claims under the Company’s indemnity of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Moreover, in the event that an executed waiver is deemed to be unenforceable against a third party, the Sponsor will not be responsible to the extent of any liability for such third-party claims. The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers, prospective target businesses or other entities with which the Company does business, execute agreements with the Company waiving any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to monies held in the Trust Account.

NOTE 2. LIQUIDITY

 

As of September 30, 2019, the Company had $97,238 in its operating bank accounts, $71,083,267 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 $539,917, which excludes franchise and income taxes payable of $87,713, of which such amounts will be paid from interest earned on the Trust Account. As of September 30, 2019, approximately $1,083,000 of the amount on deposit in the Trust Account represented interest income, which is available to pay the Company’s tax obligations. During the three months ended September 30, 2019, the Company withdrew $170,264 of interest from the Trust Account in order to pay its 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 August 2019, the Sponsor committed to provide an aggregate of $500,000 in loans to the Company to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination. In October 2019, the $500,000 commitment was replaced by a $875,000 commitment. Such loans, to the extent advanced, will be evidenced by a promissory note, will be non-interest bearing, unsecured and will only be repaid upon the completion of a Business Combination. Up to $500,000 of such loans may also be convertible into private warrants at a purchase price of $0.40 per private warrant. The private warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. 

 

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 8 of Regulation S-X of 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 complete 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 June 30, 2019 as filed with the SEC on August 21, 2019, which contains the Company’s audited financial statements and notes thereto. The financial information as of June 30, 2019 is derived from the audited financial statements presented in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2019.The interim results for the three months ended September 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ended June 30, 2020 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 subsidiary. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Emerging growth company

 

The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and stockholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.

CHARDAN HEALTHCARE ACQUISITION CORP.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

SEPTEMBER 30, 2019

(Unaudited)

 

Further, Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that a company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to non-emerging growth companies but any such election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of the Company’s financial statements with another public company which is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company which has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.

 

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of 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 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 financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future confirming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.

 

Cash and cash equivalents

 

The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents consist of mutual funds. As of September 30, 2019 and June 30, 2019, cash equivalents amounted to $58,127 and $605,974.

 

Marketable securities held in Trust Account

 

At September 30, 2019 and June 30, 2019, substantially all of the assets held in the Trust Account were held in U.S. Treasury Bills.

 

Common stock subject to possible redemption

 

The Company accounts for its common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Common stock subject to mandatory redemption is classified as a liability instrument and is measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that features redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. The Company’s common stock features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s 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 the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.     

 

Income taxes

 

The Company complies with the accounting and reporting requirements of ASC Topic 740 “Income Taxes,” which requires an asset and liability approach to financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are computed for differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities that will result in future taxable or deductible amounts, based on enacted tax laws and rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

 

The Company's effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2019 was approximately (20%), which differs from the statutory tax rate mainly due to the effect of Business Combination expenses which are not currently deductible.

 

ASC Topic 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. As of September 30, 2019 and June 30, 2019, there were no unrecognized tax benefits and no amounts accrued for interest and penalties. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position.

The Company may be subject to potential examination by federal, state and city taxing authorities in the areas of income taxes. These potential examinations may include questioning the timing and amount of deductions, the nexus of income among various tax jurisdictions and compliance with federal, state and city tax laws. The Company’s management does not expect that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits will materially change over the next twelve months.

 

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. Shares of common stock subject to possible redemption at September 30, 2019, which are not currently redeemable and are not redeemable at fair value, have been excluded from the calculation of basic 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 6,400,000 shares of common stock in the calculation of diluted loss per share, since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events. As a result, diluted loss per common share is the same as basic loss per common share for the periods.

 

Reconciliation of net loss per common share

 

The Company’s net loss 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 loss per common share is calculated as follows:

 

   Three Months Ended
September 30,
 
   2019   2018 
Net loss  $(292,179)  $(650)
Less: Income attributable to common stock subject to possible redemption   (275,958)    
Adjusted net loss  $(568,137)  $(650)
           
Weighted average shares outstanding, basic and diluted   2,239,757    1,750,000 
           
Basic and diluted net loss per share  $(0.25)  $(0.00)

 

Concentration of credit risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk consist of cash accounts in a financial institution, which, at times may exceed the Federal Depository Insurance Coverage of $250,000. At September 30, 2019 and June 30, 2019, the Company had not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.

 

Fair Value of financial instruments

 

The fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” approximates the carrying amounts represented in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets, primarily due to their short-term nature.

 

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. INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING

 

Pursuant to the Initial Public Offering, the Company sold 7,000,000 Units at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one share of common stock and one warrant (“Public Warrant”). Each Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one-half of one share of common stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per whole share (see Note 8).

 

NOTE 5. PRIVATE PLACEMENT

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, Mountain Wood, LLC purchased an aggregate of 2,900,000 Private Placement Warrants at a purchase price of $0.40 per Private Placement Warrant, or $1,160,000 in the aggregate). Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $11.50. The proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were added to the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to the Private Placement Warrants.

 

NOTE 6. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

Founder Shares

 

In March 2018, the Company issued an aggregate of 1,437,500 shares of common stock to the Sponsor (“Founder Shares”) for an aggregate purchase price of $25,000. On September 14, 2018, the Company effectuated a 1.4-for-1 stock dividend resulting in an aggregate of 2,012,500 Founder Shares outstanding. The Founder Shares included an aggregate of up to 262,500 shares subject to forfeiture by the Sponsor to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment was not exercised in full or in part, so that the Sponsor would own 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering (assuming the Sponsor did not purchase any Public Shares in the Initial Public Offering). All share and per-share amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the stock dividend. The underwriters’ over-allotment option expired unexercised on February 4, 2019. As such, 262,500 Founder Shares were forfeited resulting in 1,750,000 Founder Shares issued and outstanding.

 

The Initial Stockholders have agreed that, subject to certain limited exceptions, 50% of the Founder Shares will not be transferred, assigned, sold or released from escrow until the earlier of (i) 6 months after the date of the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) the date on which the closing price of the Company’s shares of common stock equals or exceeds $12.50 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations and recapitalizations) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing after a Business Combination and the remaining 50% of the Founder Shares will not be transferred, assigned, sold or released from escrow until 6 months after the date of the consummation of a Business Combination, or earlier, in either case, if, subsequent to a Business Combination, the Company consummates a subsequent liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction which results in all of the stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property.

 

Promissory Notes – Related Party

 

The Company issued unsecured promissory notes (the “Promissory Notes”) to the Sponsor, pursuant to which the Company borrowed an aggregate of $105,500, of which $65,500 was borrowed during the year ended June 30, 2019. The Promissory Notes were non-interest bearing and payable on the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The Promissory Notes were repaid upon the consummation of the Initial Public Offering on December 18, 2018.

 

On December 18, 2018, the Company issued a $500,000 promissory note to the Sponsor (the “Sponsor Promissory Note”) in exchange for $500,000 in cash that was used to pay the underwriting discount at the consummation of the Initial Public Offering. The Sponsor Promissory Note was non-interest bearing, unsecured and due upon the consummation of a Business Combination. The Sponsor Promissory Note was repaid in July 2019.

Related Party Loans

 

In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Company’s initial stockholders, officers and directors or their affiliates may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds from time to time or at any time, as may be required (“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 $500,000 of the Working Capital Loans may be converted into private warrants at a price of $0.40 per private warrant. The private warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of the proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans, but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans.

 

In August 2019, the Sponsor committed to provide us an aggregate of $500,000 in loans to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination. In October 2019, the $500,000 commitment was replaced by a $875,000 commitment (see Note 10). Such loans, to the extent advanced, will be evidenced by a promissory note, will be non-interest bearing, unsecured and will only be repaid upon the completion of a Business Combination.

 

NOTE 7. COMMITMENTS

 

Registration Rights

 

Pursuant to a registration rights agreement entered into on December 13, 2018, the holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants (and their underlying securities) and any securities that may be issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans are entitled to registration rights. The holders of a majority of these securities are entitled to make up to two demands that the Company register such securities. The holders of the majority of the Founder Shares can elect to exercise these registration rights at any time commencing three months prior to the date on which these shares of common stock are to be released from escrow. The holders of a majority of the Private Placement Warrants (and their underlying securities) or securities issued in payment of Working Capital Loans made to the Company (in each case, including the underlying securities) can elect to exercise these registration rights at any time after the Company consummates a Business Combination. In addition, the holders will have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of a Business Combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

 

Merger Agreement

 

On July 16, 2019, the Company entered into a merger agreement (the “Merger Agreement”) with BiomX and CHAC Merger Sub Ltd. (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into BiomX, with BiomX surviving as the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary (the “Merger”).

 

As a result of the Merger, subject to reduction for indemnification claims as described in the Merger Agreement, an aggregate of 16,625,000 shares of the Company’s common stock will be issued (or reserved for issuance pursuant to currently exercisable options or warrants) in respect of shares of BiomX capital stock that are issued and outstanding as of immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger and options and warrants to purchase shares of BiomX capital stock, in each case, that are issued, outstanding and vested as of immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger. Additional shares of the Company’s common stock will be reserved for issuance in respect of options to purchase shares of BiomX capital stock that are issued, outstanding and unvested as of immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger.

 

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

 

More information about the Merger is included in the definitive proxy statement/prospectus that the Company filed with the SEC on September 24, 2019. The definitive proxy statement/prospectus contains the notice of special meeting of shareholders of the Company to vote on and adopt the Merger Agreement, as amended on October 11, 2019, and to vote on certain related proposals. The special meeting is scheduled for October 23, 2019. There is no guarantee that the Company will be able to hold its special meeting on the scheduled day or at all, or that the conditions to the closing of the Merger will be satisfied prior to, or following such meeting.

 

NOTE 8. STOCKHOLDER’S EQUITY

 

Preferred Stock — The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share with such designation, rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Company’s Board of Directors. At September 30, 2019 and June 30, 2019, there were no shares of preferred stock issued or outstanding.

 

Common Stock — The Company is authorized to issue 30,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Company’s common stock are entitled to one vote for each share. At September 30, 2019 and June 30, 2019, there were 2,296,223 and 2,239,757 shares of common stock issued and outstanding (excluding 6,453,777 and 6,510,243 shares of common stock subject to possible redemption), respectively.

Warrants — No fractional shares will be issued upon exercise of the Public Warrants. Therefore, Public Warrants must be exercised in multiples of two warrants. The Public Warrants will become exercisable on the consummation of a Business Combination; provided in that the Company has an effective and current registration statement covering the shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Public Warrants and a current prospectus relating to such shares of common stock. The Company has agreed that as soon as practicable, the Company will use its best efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement for the registration, under the Securities Act, of the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants. The Company will use its best efforts to cause the same to become effective and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement, and a current prospectus relating thereto, until the expiration of the Public Warrants in accordance with the provisions of the warrant agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a registration statement covering the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the public warrants is not effective within 120 days from the closing of a Business Combination, warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when we shall have failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise warrants on a cashless basis pursuant to an available exemption from registration under the Securities Act. If an exemption from registration is not available, holders will not be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis. The Public Warrants will expire five years after the completion of a Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.

 

The Company may redeem the Public Warrants:

 

  in whole and not in part;
     
  at a price of $0.01 per warrant;
     
  at any time during the exercise period;
     
  upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption;
     
  if, and only if, the last sale price of the Company’s common stock equals or exceeds $16.00 per share for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending on the third business day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders; and
     
  if, and only if, there is a current registration statement in effect with respect to the shares of common stock underlying such warrants at the time of redemption and for the entire 30-day trading period referred to above and continuing each day thereafter until the date of redemption.

 

If the Company calls the Public Warrants for redemption, management will have the option to require all holders that wish to exercise the Public Warrants to do so on a “cashless basis,” as described in the warrant agreement. The exercise price and number of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants may be adjusted in certain circumstances including in the event of a stock dividend, or recapitalization, reorganization, merger or consolidation. However, the warrants will not be adjusted for issuance of common stock at a price below its exercise price. Additionally, in no event will the Company be required to net cash settle the warrants. If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and the Company liquidates the funds held in the Trust Account, holders of warrants will not receive any of such funds with respect to their warrants, nor will they receive any distribution from the Company’s assets held outside of the Trust Account with the respect to such warrants. Accordingly, the warrants may expire worthless.

 

The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering except that the Private Placement Warrants are exercisable for cash (even if a registration statement covering the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of such warrants is not effective) or on a cashless basis, at the holder’s option, and will not be redeemable by the Company, in each case, so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants.

NOTE 9. 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 June 30, 2019, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value:

 

Description  Level  September 30,
2019

Assets:           
Marketable securities held in Trust Account  1  $71,083,267   $70,881,151 

 

NOTE 10. 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.

 

In October 2019, the Sponsor committed to provide an aggregate of $875,000 in loans to the Company to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination. This commitment replaced the previous commitment of $500,000 entered into in August 2019. Such loans, to the extent advanced, will be evidenced by a promissory note, will be non-interest bearing, unsecured and will only be repaid upon the completion of a Business Combination. Up to $500,000 of such loans may also be convertible into private warrants at a purchase price of $0.40 per private warrant. The private warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants.

The following discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes thereto contained elsewhere in this Quarterly Report. Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.

 

Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Recent Developments

 

On July 16, 2019, we entered into the Merger Agreement with BiomX and Merger Sub, pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into BiomX, with BiomX surviving as our wholly-owned subsidiary.

 

As a result of the Merger, subject to reduction for indemnification claims as described below, an aggregate of 16,625,000 shares of CHAC common stock will be issued (or reserved for issuance pursuant to currently exercisable options or warrants) in respect of shares of BiomX capital stock that are issued and outstanding as of immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger and options and warrants to purchase shares of BiomX capital stock, in each case, that are issued, outstanding and vested as of immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger. Additional shares of CHAC common stock will be reserved for issuance in respect of options to purchase shares of BiomX capital stock that are issued, outstanding and unvested as of immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger.

 

Overview

 

We were formed on November 1, 2017 as a blank check company for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, recapitalization, reorganization or other similar business combination, with one or more target businesses. Our efforts to identify a prospective target business will not be limited to any particular industry or geographic location, although we intend to focus on targets located in North American in the healthcare industry.

 

On December 18, 2018, we consummated our initial public offering (“IPO”) of 7,000,000 units (the “Units”). Each Unit consists of one share of common stock (the “Common Stock”) and one redeemable warrant to purchase one-half of one share of common stock (the “Public Warrants”). The Units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $70,000,000. The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 1,050,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any. The over-allotment option expired unexercised on February 4, 2019.

 

14

 

 

On December 18, 2018, simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, we consummated the private placement (“Private Placement”) with Mountain Wood, LLC, an affiliate of our Sponsor, of 2,900,000 warrants (the “Private Warrants”) at a price of $0.40 per Private Warrant, generating total proceeds of $1,160,000. The Private Warrants are identical to the Warrants sold in the IPO, except that the Private Warrants (i) may be exercised on a cashless basis at the holder’s option, (ii) will not be redeemable by the Company, in each case as long as they are held by our Sponsor or its permitted transferees, and (iii) are exercisable for one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share. Additionally, the Private Warrants are exercisable on a cashless basis and are non-redeemable so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees. Additionally, our Mountain Wood, LLC agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Private Warrants or underlying securities (except in limited circumstances, as described in the registration statement relating to the IPO) until the completion of the Company’s initial business combination. Mountain Wood, LLC was granted certain demand and piggyback registration rights in connection with the Private Warrants.

 

A total of $70,000,000 of the net proceeds from the sale of Units in the IPO and the private placement on December 18, 2018 were placed in a trust account established for the benefit of the Company’s public stockholders at Morgan Stanley maintained by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, acting as trustee. None of the funds held in trust will be released from the trust account, other than interest income to pay any tax obligations, until the earlier of (i) the consummation of the Company’s initial business combination and (ii) the Company’s failure to consummate a business combination by December 18, 2020.

 

Our management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of IPO and the Private Placements, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally towards consummating a business combination.

 

Results of Operations

 

Our entire activity from inception up to December 18, 2018 was related to the Company’s formation, the IPO and general and administrative activities. Since the IPO, our activity has been limited to the evaluation of business combination candidates and the proposed acquisition of BiomX, and we will not be generating any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our initial business combination. We generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on marketable securities held in the trust account. 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 and transaction expenses.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, we had a net loss of $292,179, which consisted of operating costs of $618,936 and a provision for income taxes of $47,776, offset by interest income on marketable securities held in the trust account of $372,380.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, we had net loss of $650, which consisted of operating costs of $650.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2019, we had marketable securities held in the trust account of $71,083,267 (including approximately $1,083,000 of interest income, net of unrealized losses) consisting of U.S. Treasury Bills with a maturity of 180 days or less. Interest income on the balance in the trust account may be used by us to pay taxes. Through September 30, 2019, we have withdrawn $170,264 of interest earned on the Trust Account to pay our income taxes.  

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, cash and cash equivalents used in operating activities was $269,856. Net loss of $292,179 was affected by interest earned on marketable securities held in the trust account of $372,380 and a deferred tax provision of $1,222. Changes in our operating assets and liabilities provided $393,481 of cash and cash equivalents for operating activities.  

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, cash and cash equivalents used in operating activities was $650, which consisted of a net loss of $650.

 

We intend to use substantially all of the net proceeds of the IPO, including the funds held in the trust account, to acquire a target business or businesses and to pay our expenses relating thereto. To the extent that the proceeds of the IPO are used in whole or in part as consideration to effect our initial business combination, the remaining proceeds held in the trust account as well as any other net proceeds not expended will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business. Such working capital funds could be used in a variety of ways including continuing or expanding the target business’ operations, for strategic acquisitions and for marketing, research and development of existing or new products. Such funds could also be used to repay any operating expenses or finders’ fees which we had incurred prior to the completion of our initial business combination if the funds available to us outside of the trust account were insufficient to cover such expenses.

 

As of September 30, 2019, we had cash and cash equivalents outside our trust account of $97,238, available for working capital needs. We intend to use the funds held outside the trust account primarily to identify and evaluate prospective acquisition candidates, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, select the target business to acquire and structure, negotiate and complete a business combination.

Our Sponsor paid a total of $500,000 in underwriting discounts and commissions and received a non-interest bearing promissory note in exchange for the payment of such amount, which was payable at the closing of a Business Combination. The promissory note was repaid in July 2019.

 

In order to fund working capital deficiencies and/or finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, our initial stockholders, officers and directors or their affiliate may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds as may be required. If we complete our Business Combination, we would repay such loaned amounts. In the event that our 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 $500,000 of such loans may be convertible into private warrants, at a price of $0.40 per private warrant at the option of the lender. The private warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants.

 

In August 2019, the Sponsor committed to provide us an aggregate of $500,000 in loans to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination. In October 2019, the $500,000 commitment was replaced by a $875,000 commitment. Such loans, to the extent advanced, will be evidenced by a promissory note, will be non-interest bearing, unsecured and will only be repaid upon the completion of a Business Combination. Up to $500,000 of such loans may also be convertible into private warrants at a purchase price of $0.40 per private warrant. The private warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants.

 

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 amounts 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 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.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of September 30, 2019, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements. We have no obligations, assets or liabilities which would be considered off-balance sheet arrangements. 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 entered into any non-financial assets.

 

Contractual Obligations

 

We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations or long-term liabilities. 

 

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 identified the following critical accounting policies:

 

Common stock subject to possible redemption

 

We account for our common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Common stock subject to mandatory redemption is classified as a liability instrument and is measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that features 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) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. Our common stock features 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.

 

16

 

 

Net loss per common share

 

We apply the two-class method in calculating earnings per share. Shares of common stock subject to possible redemption 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. 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 standards

 

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 Initial Public 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

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2019, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer have concluded that during the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

During the fiscal quarter covered by this Current Report on Form 10-Q, there has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

None.  

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

Factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those in this Quarterly Report are any of the risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on August 21, 2019. Any of these factors could result in a significant or material adverse effect on our results of operations or financial condition. Additional risk factors not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business or results of operations. As of the date of this Quarterly Report, there have been no material changes to the risk factors disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC.

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds.

 

On December 18, 2018, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 7,000,000 Units. The Units sold in the Initial Public Offering were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating total gross proceeds of $70,000,000. Chardan Capital Markets LLC. acted as sole book-running manager of the Initial Public Offering. The securities in the offering were registered under the Securities Act on a registration statement on Form S-1 (No. 333-228533). The SEC declared the registration statement effective on December 13, 2018. We granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 1,050,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments at the Initial Public Offering price, less the underwriting discounts and commissions. The over-allotment option expired unexercised on February 4, 2019.

 

Simultaneous with the consummation of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the private placement of an aggregate of 2,900,000 warrants, each exercisable to purchase one share of the Company’s common stock for $11.50 per share (“Private Placement Warrants”), to Mountain Wood, LLC, an affiliate of the Sponsor at a price of $0.40 per Private Placement Warrant, generating total proceeds of $1,160,000. The issuance was made pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

 

18

 

 

The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that the Private Placement Warrants are not transferable, assignable or salable until after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions. Additionally, the Private Warrants are exercisable on a cashless basis and are non-redeemable so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees.

 

Of the gross proceeds received from the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement Warrants, $70,000,000 was placed in a Trust Account. We paid a total of $500,000 in underwriting discounts and commissions and $283,566 for other costs and expenses related to the Initial Public Offering.

 

For a description of the use of the proceeds generated in our Initial Public Offering, see Part I, Item 2 of this Form 10-Q.

 

Item 3. Defaults Upon Senior Securities.

 

None

 

Item 4. Mine Safety Disclosures.
