The Extension Meeting

 

On July 9, 2019, BRAC held a special meeting of its stockholders (the “Meeting”). At the Meeting, BRAC’s stockholders considered a proposal to adopt and approve an amendment to BRAC’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation (the “Charter”) to extend the date that BRAC has to consummate a business combination (the “Extension”) to August 10, 2019. The amendment was approved by the stockholders.

 

In connection with this vote, the holders of 9,246,727 shares of BRAC’s common stock properly exercised their right to convert their shares into cash at a conversion price of approximately $10.29 per share resulting in $95,125,574 in Trust Account assets being distributed back to shareholders. In connection with the Extension, BROG, loaned $30,000 to BRAC to be placed in the Trust Account for the benefit of the public shares that were not converted. The loan is non-interest bearing and is evidenced by a promissory note issued by BRAC on the same date.

 

BRAC filed the amendment to the Charter with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on July 9, 2019.

  

Amendment to the Business Combination Agreement

 

On August 5, 2019, BRAC entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Business Combination Agreement. The Amendment reduced the closing condition originally contained in the Business Combination Agreement requiring BRAC to have minimum cash on hand following the proper exercise of conversion rights by the holders of public shares from at least $80,000,000 to $22,000,000. This condition was waived by Ourgame prior to the close of the Business Combination. The Business Combination Agreement also originally provided for BRAC to repay $35,000,000 of indebtedness of Allied Esports and the World Poker Tour owed to Ourgame in cash at the closing of the transactions (the “Closing”). Pursuant to the Amendment, the parties agreed that instead of paying the full $35,000,000 in cash at the Closing, BRAC would (i) assume $10,000,000 of the debt obligations of Ourgame and Noble (including an additional $1,200,000 of accrued interest) and (ii) repay Ourgame the remaining balance of $23,800,000 by paying $3,500,000 in cash to Ourgame and its designees, issuing to Ourgame and its designees 2,928,679 shares of BRAC’s common stock and Ourgame retaining $1,000,000 of the proceeds of such loans to pay its transaction expenses incurred in the Merger. In connection with entering into the Amendment, BROG agreed to transfer an aggregate of 600,000 shares of BRAC’s common stock held by it to Ourgame.

 

In connection with the execution of the Amendment, the parties entered into an amendment and acknowledgment agreement (“Acknowledgment Agreement”) whereby the terms of the previously issued convertible notes (“Notes”) of Allied Esports and WPT (collectively “AEII/WPT”) whereby bridge holders provided $14 million to be used for the operations of AEII/WPT were amended. Pursuant to the Acknowledgement Agreement, the bridge holders agreed to defer repayment of the Notes to one year and two weeks following the Closing (the “Maturity Date”). In consideration of agreeing to the deferred repayment, the bridge holders will be paid an additional six months of interest (i.e., a total of 18 months interest) to the extent any bridge holder elects not to convert their Note to equity. BRAC agreed to assume the debt under the Notes as part of the mergers contemplated by the Agreement, and agreed that the debt will be secured by all the assets of BRAC following the Closing. BROG, as the Sponsor, also agreed that it will not make any further transfer of its securities of BRAC, subject to certain exceptions, until the debt is repaid. The Notes are convertible at any time by a holder between the Closing and the Maturity Date at the “Conversion Price.” The “Conversion Price” is the lesser of $8.50 per share or the price at which shares are issued to Ourgame or its affiliates in connection with the mergers.

 

In July and August 2019, BRAC and BROG also entered into several share purchase agreements (the “Purchase Agreements”) with several parties (collectively referred to as the “Purchasers”). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreements, the Purchasers agreed to purchase an aggregate of $18,000,000 of shares of BRAC’s common stock in open market or privately negotiated transactions. If the Purchasers are unable to purchase the full $18,000,000 of shares of common stock in open market or privately negotiated transactions, BRAC will issue to the Purchasers newly issued shares at the Closing at a per-share price equal to the per-share amount held in BRAC’s trust account (currently approximately $10.30 per share), and having an aggregate value equal to the difference between $18,000,000 and the dollar amount of shares purchased by them in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. One of the agreements also contains certain restrictions on the use of cash from the purchase. At the Closing, BRAC agreed to issue to the Purchasers 1.5 shares of common stock for every 10 shares purchased by them under the Purchase Agreements. Additionally, BROG agreed to transfer an aggregate of 720,000 shares of BRAC common stock held by it to the Purchasers. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreements, BRAC is required to file a registration statement with the SEC as promptly as practicable following Closing to register the resale of any securities purchased by the Purchasers that are not already registered and cause such registration statement to become effective as soon as possible. The Purchasers included a $3 million investment from Lyle Berman, a member of the board of directors of both BRAC and BROG and the largest shareholder of BROG. Additionally, $5 million will be held in an escrow account and its usage will be limited to specific capital projects.

 

Closing of the Business Combination

 

Commensurate with the Business Combination the BROG converted $600,000 of convertible loans to BRAC into 60,000 units (comprised 66,000 shares after conversion of stock rights and 60,000 warrants with terms similar to the IPO warrants). The remaining $150,000 in convertible loans were returned in cash by BRAC to BROG. Additionally, the underwriter agreed to an amendment to its agreement, modifying its payment due at the close of the Business Combination to $4 million, $2 million on cash and $2 million in equity. Other advisors used in the transaction agreed to accept payment for $3.8 million in contingent fees in BRAC equity.

 

Upon, the close of the Business Combination, BROG owned 2,685,500 shares of BRAC stock, representing approximately 11.6% of the outstanding shares of BRAC. As per the Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc. 2018 Management Incentive Plan, 20% of the shares, or 537,100 shares, owned by BROG are committed to employees and directors of the Company. Additionally, as the conditions warranting BROG’s treatment of BRAC as a VIE have been eliminated, BROG will no longer be accounted for as a VIE and consolidated for financial statement reporting purposes from the date of the closing of the Business Combination forward.

 

Consulting Agreement

 

On August 19, 2019, the Company entered into a consulting service agreement with Allied Esports Entertainment, Inc. under which, the Company has agreed to provide certain services required by Allied Esports, including, without limitation, administrative and accounting services through December 31, 2019.   Under the Consulting Agreement, the Company is entitled to specified payment for the Consulting Services to be paid on the date of execution and the first day of each following month with expected aggregate total payments of approximately $349,000 over the term of the Consulting Agreement.
