On September 16, 2022, the Company issued approximately 7.5 million shares of its common stock to the former Tyme stockholders in connection with the Merger. The Company also issued options and warrants to purchase 733,545 shares of the Company’s common stock to certain holders of Tyme options and warrants that were outstanding immediately before the consummation of the Merger. The Merger is accounted for as a recapitalization because the Company was determined to be a legal and accounting acquirer under Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Accounting Standards Codification Topic 805, Business Combinations (“ASC 805”). This determination was primarily based on the following facts and circumstances:
The pre-combination equity holders of the Company hold the relative majority of voting rights in the combined entity;
The pre-combination equity holders of the Company have the right to appoint the majority of the directors on the combined entity’s board of directors;
Senior management of the Company comprises the senior management of the combined entity;
Operations of the Company comprise the ongoing operations of the combined entity; and
Upon effectiveness of the Merger, the primary assets of Tyme at the effective date were primarily cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities.
Under the recapitalization accounting model, the net assets acquired are recognized at fair value and any excess consideration transferred over the fair value of the net assets are reflected as a reduction to equity. Transaction costs incurred attributable to the Merger are also reflected as a reduction to the equity.
The carrying value of Tyme’s net assets as of September 16, 2022, which approximates fair value because of its short-term nature, is set forth below:
No value has been ascribed to the development programs acquired from Tyme in the Merger.
The Company incurred $3.1 million of transaction costs attributable to the Merger which are reflected as a reduction of additional paid-in capital. In addition, the Company paid $4.5 million of severance to former Tyme employees which is included in the Company's statement of operations as transaction related expenses.
