3. Reverse Merger
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 aggregate merger consideration to be paid pursuant to the Merger Agreement to Phunware stockholders amounted to approximately $301 million plus adjustments for cash on-hand as of the date of Closing. The merger consideration to be paid to Phunware stockholders was paid in the form of number shares of Successor common stock. In addition, each holder of Phunware common and convertible preferred stock was entitled to elect to receive such holder’s pro rata share of up to an aggregate of 3,985,244 warrants (the “Transfer Sponsor Warrants”) to purchase shares of Successor common stock that are currently held by certain shareholders of Stellar. The per share Merger Consideration paid to Phunware Stockholders was 0.459 shares of Successor stock for each share of Phunware Stock.
In connection with the consummation of the Reverse Merger and Recapitalization, certain holders of shares of Stellar common stock sold in its initial public offering (“Public Shares”) exercised their right to redeem their Public Shares for cash. As a result of these redemptions, the cash proceeds to the Company as a result of the Reverse Merger and Recapitalization was $0.4 million before transaction costs.
In addition, 6,000 shares for aggregate cash proceeds of $6.0 million from the Series A 8% convertible preferred stock financing (“Series A Financing”) were issued in conjunction with the Business Combination. In connection with the Series A Financing, certain Stellar shareholders transferred an aggregate of 250,000 shares of Stellar common stock and 250,000 warrants to purchase shares of Stellar common stock to the Series A Financing investor, and 181,391 shares to certain service providers. The Sponsors are Astra Maritime Inc. and Dominium Investments Inc., affiliated with the Company’s Chairman of the board of directors and Magellan Investments Corp. and Firmus Investments Inc., affiliated with a member of our board of directors. See Note 10 for additional discussion on the Series A Financing.
