NOTE 2: BUSINESS COMBINATIONS
Wholesome Acquisition—On December 17, 2020, the Company entered into a stock purchase agreement (the “Wholesome Purchase Agreement”) with WSO Investments, Inc. (“WSO Investments” and together with its subsidiaries, “Wholesome” and affiliates). WSO Investments is the direct parent of its wholly-owned subsidiary Wholesome Sweeteners, Incorporated, which was formed to import, market, distribute, and sell organic sugars, unrefined specialty sugars, and related products. Wholesome is included within the Company’s Branded CPG reportable segment. Wholesome’s results are included in the Company’s consolidated statement of operations from the date of acquisition.
On February 5, 2021, pursuant to the terms of the Wholesome Purchase Agreement, the Company purchased and acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock for an initial cash purchase price of $180 million plus up to an additional $55 million (the “Earn-Out Amount”) upon the satisfaction of certain post-closing financial metrics. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Wholesome Purchase Agreement payment of the Earn-Out Amount, in whole or in part, was subject to Wholesome achieving certain EBITDA thresholds at or above approximately $30 million during the period beginning August 29, 2020, and ending December 31, 2021 (the “Earn-Out Period”). A portion of the Earn-Out Amount (up to $27.5 million) could be paid, at the Company’s election, in freely tradeable, registered shares of Company common stock calculated using the 20-day volume weighted average trading price per share as of the date of determination. Calculation of the achievement of the Earn-Out Amount was subject to certain adjustments more thoroughly described in the Wholesome Purchase Agreement. In connection with the acquisition of Wholesome, the Company incurred transaction-related costs of $0.2 million and $4.4 million in the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
Following the completion of the Earn-Out Period, the Company determined, in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement, that the sellers were entitled to receive the Earn-Out Amount in full. The Company elected to satisfy part of the Earn-Out Amount in common stock and on February 23, 2022, issued 2,659,574 shares of the Company’s common stock. The remaining $30 million portion of the $55 million Earn-Out Amount was paid in cash which was funded from available capacity under the Company’s revolving credit facility. The settlement of the earn-out resulted in a non-cash gain of $1.1 million that was recorded in the first quarter of 2022 which represents the difference in the value of the common stock issued using the 20-day volume weighted average trading price per share as compared to the trading price on the date of issuance.
The following summarizes the purchase consideration (in thousands):
The Company recorded the fair value of the purchase price to tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed as follows (in thousands):
The values allocated to identifiable intangible assets and their estimated useful lives are as follows:
Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair value assigned to tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed and represents the future economic benefits expected to arise from other intangible assets acquired that do not qualify for separate recognition, including assembled workforce and expected future market opportunities. Of the purchase price allocated to goodwill, a total of $4.7 million will be deductible for income tax purposes pursuant to IRC Section 197 over a 9-year period.
The Company’s allocation of purchase price was based upon valuations performed to determine the fair value of the net assets as of the acquisition date and was subject to adjustments for up to one year after the closing date of the acquisition to reflect final valuations. The allocation of purchase price was finalized in the first quarter of 2022.
In 2021, the Company recorded measurement period adjustments to its initial allocation of purchase price as a result of ongoing valuation procedures on assets and liabilities assumed, including (i) an increase in purchase price of $3.6 million due to the finalization of the closing adjustment; (ii) a decrease to inventory of $1.8 million; (iii) an increase in prepaid expenses and other current assets of $0.5 million; (iv) an increase in property, plant and equipment of $0.4 million; (v) a decrease to intangible assets of $1.9 million; (vi) a decrease to other assets of $0.1 million; (vii) a decrease to accrued expenses and other current liabilities of $2.7 million; (viii) a decrease to deferred tax liabilities, net of $2.8 million; and (ix) an increase to goodwill of $1.0 million due to the incremental measurement period adjustments discussed in items (i) through (viii). The impact of measurement period adjustments to the results of operations was immaterial.
The results of the Company’s operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 includes the results of Wholesome since February 5, 2021. Product revenues, net and operating income of Wholesome included in the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $27.7 million and $1.7 million, respectively.
Pro Forma Financial Information—The following unaudited pro forma financial information summarizes the results of operations of the Company for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as though the Wholesome acquisition had occurred on January 1, 2020 (in thousands):
