Note 19 Liquidity Agreement for Purchase of Investor Webcast
On April 20, 2015, the Company entered into a liquidity agreement to acquire 100% of CAST valued at $469,611 in exchange for 4,696 to-be-created Series B convertible preferred shares of Mentor. The purchase price was based on projected future earnings of CAST and discounted at 17.87% (the discount rate used for the 2015 investment in installment receivable described in Note 5).
After one year, the to-be-created Series B convertible preferred shares could be converted, in steps or in whole, into Mentor common shares. The to-be-created Series B convertible preferred shares would have converted to common shares based on the following conversion formula: ((3.3 times CAST recurring revenue) + (20 times CAST after tax profit) divided by 2) plus cash minus liabilities, for the preceding four calendar quarters, as defined in the agreement. Due to Mentors recent reincorporation in Delaware, the series B convertible preferred shares had not yet been created and therefore, a convertible security was been issued to the prior owner of CAST which could be converted to Mentor Series B convertible preferred shares once they were created.
Purchase price allocation of CAST assets and liabilities:
Actual operating results of CAST in future periods and the share price of Mentor common shares at the date of conversion would determine the number of common shares issued upon conversion of the Series B convertible preferred shares, in whole or in part. The conversion formula was to be evaluated in subsequent periods to determine if actual CAST operations result in a contingent asset or liability relating to the Series B convertible preferred shares. The Company evaluated CAST revenue and income for the period from the purchase date, April 20, 2015, to December 31, 2015 along with revised projections. The revenue and net loss realized in 2015 and the lower revised projections resulted in a fair value of $0 for the convertible security at December 31, 2015. Subsequent to year end the agreements with CAST were cancelled and terminated, resulting in a spinoff of CAST from the Company, see Note 24.
