1. The Company and Basis of Presentation
Phunware, Inc. (the "Company") is a provider of Multiscreen as a Service (MaaS) solutions, an integrated customer engagement platform that enables organizations to develop customized, immersive, branded mobile applications. The Company sells its services in vertical markets, including health care, retail, hospitality, transportation, sports, and entertainment. The Company enables brands to engage, manage, and monetize their anytime-anywhere mobile users. The Company's MaaS technology is available in software development kit form for organizations developing their own application, via customized development services, and prepackaged solutions. Through its integrated mobile advertising platform of publishers and developers, the Company also maximizes mobile monetization through an advertising product suite including self-service media buying, real-time bidding, publisher mediation and yield optimization, cross-platform ad creation, and dynamic ad serving. Founded in 2009, the Company is a Delaware corporation headquartered in Austin, Texas.
On February 27, 2018, Phunware entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, as amended (collectively, the "Merger Agreement") with Stellar Acquisition III, Inc. ("Stellar"). On December 26, 2018, the Company consummated the transaction contemplated by the Merger Agreement (the "Reverse Merger and Recapitalization"). In connection with the closing of the Reverse Merger and Recapitalization, the registrant changed its name from Stellar Acquisition III, Inc. to Phunware, Inc. ("Successor"). Furthermore, the holders of Phunware's preferred stock converted all of their issued and outstanding shares of preferred stock into shares of Phunware common stock at a conversion ratio of one share of common stock for each share of preferred stock (the "Preferred Stock Exchange"). Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Reverse Merger and Recapitalization (the "Effective Time"): (i) all shares of Phunware common stock and preferred stock (the "Phunware Stock") issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (after giving effect to the Preferred Stock Exchange) converted into the right to receive the Stockholder Merger Consideration (as defined below); (ii) each outstanding warrant to acquire shares of Phunware Stock was cancelled, retired and terminated in exchange for the right to receive from the Successor a new warrant for shares of Successor common stock with its price and number of shares equitably adjusted based on the conversion of the shares of Phunware Stock into the Stockholder Merger Consideration, but with terms otherwise the same as the Phunware warrant (each, a "Replacement Warrant"); and (iii) each outstanding option to acquire Phunware Stock (whether vested or unvested) was assumed by the Successor and automatically converted into an option to acquire shares of Successor common stock, with its price and number of shares equitably adjusted based on the conversion of the shares of Phunware Stock into the Stockholder Merger Consideration (each, an "Assumed Option"). The shares of Successor common stock and the Transferred Sponsor Warrants to be transferred to Phunware stockholders are collectively referred to as "Stockholder Merger Consideration". The per share Merger Consideration paid to Phunware Stockholders was 0.459 shares of Successor stock for each share of Phunware Stock.
Unless otherwise noted, the financial statements, footnotes, and basic and dilutive net loss per share presented give retroactive effect of the Reverse Merger and Recapitalization
Basis of Presentation
The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP"), and include the Company's accounts and those of its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
As of December 31, 2016, the Company adopted the provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 205-40, Presentation of Financial Statements - Going Concern (ASC 205-40), which requires management to assess the Company's ability to continue as a going concern for one year after the date the financial statements are issued. Under ASC 205-40, management has the responsibility to evaluate whether conditions and/or events raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to meet future financial obligations as they become due within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued. As required by this standard, management's evaluation shall initially not take into consideration the potential mitigating effects of management's plans that have not been fully implemented as of the date the financial statements are issued.
The Company's assessment included the preparation of a detailed cash forecast that included all projected cash inflows and outflows. Although the Company continues to focus on growing its revenues, the Company's ongoing operating expenditures will significantly exceed the revenue it expects to receive for the foreseeable future. Additionally, the Company has a history of operating losses and negative operating cash flows and expects these trends to continue into the foreseeable future.
Future plans may include utilizing existing credit lines and/or obtaining new credit lines, expanding credit lines, issuing additional equity securities, including the exercise of warrants, and reducing overhead expenses. Despite a history of successfully implementing similar plans to alleviate the adverse financial conditions, these sources of working capital are not currently assured, and consequently do not sufficiently mitigate the risks and uncertainties disclosed above. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain additional funding on satisfactory terms or at all. In addition, no assurance can be given that any such financing, if obtained, will be adequate to meet the Company's capital needs and support its growth. If additional funding cannot be obtained on a timely basis and on satisfactory terms, its operations would be materially negatively impacted. The Company has therefore concluded there is substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern through one year from the issuance of these financial statements.
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going-concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from uncertainty related to the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.
The entire disclosure for organization, consolidation and basis of presentation of financial statements disclosure.
