PhunCoin [Abstract]  

9. PhunCoin


In June 2018, PhunCoin, Inc., the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, launched an offering pursuant to Rule 506(c) of Regulation D as promulgated under the Securities Act of rights (the “Rights”) to acquire PhunCoin (the “Token”).


PhunCoin, Inc. accepts payment in the form of cash and digital currencies for purchases of the Rights. PhunCoin, Inc. plans to sell between $10 million and $100 million of the Rights, which will entitle the Rights holders to receive between approximately 8 billion and 30.5 billion of PhunCoin. The amount of PhunCoin to be issued to the purchaser is equal to the dollar amount paid by the purchaser divided by the price of the PhunCoin at the time of issuance of the PhunCoin during the Token Generation Event (as defined below) before taking into consideration an applicable discount rate, which is based on the time of the purchase, (early purchasers will receive a larger discount rate).


Through December 31, 2018, the Company received cash proceeds from its Rights offering of $990, pursuant to which the holders of the Rights will receive an aggregate of approximately 470.25 million PhunCoin if the Token Generation Event occurs. The Company recorded proceeds from the Rights sale as current deferred revenue in its consolidated balance sheet.


The rights, privileges, and obligations of Rights holders are set forth as follows:


Issuance of PhunCoin Tokens


The PhunCoin is expected to be issued to Rights holders the earlier of (i) the launch of PhunCoin’s, Inc.’s blockchain technology enabled rewards marketplace and data exchange (“Token Generation Event”), (ii) one (1) year after the issuance of the Rights to the purchaser, or (iii) the date PhunCoin, Inc. determines that it has the ability to enforce resale restrictions with respect to PhunCoin pursuant to applicable federal securities laws. Proceeds from the Rights offering are generally not refundable if the Token Generation Event is not consummated; however, the Company believes PhunCoin, Inc. has a contractual obligation to use good faith efforts to issue a Token to Rights holders under the Token Rights Agreement.


Termination of the Token Rights Agreement


Termination of the Token Rights Agreement occurs on the earlier of (i) PhunCoin being issued to the Rights holder pursuant to the provisions noted above, (ii) the payment, or setting aside of payment with respect to a dissolution event (as described below), or (iii) twelve months from the date of the Token Rights Agreement with the Rights holder, which PhunCoin, Inc. may extend at its sole discretion if a Token Generation Event has not occurred. Upon termination of the Token Rights Agreement, PhunCoin, Inc. has no further obligation to the Rights holder.


Dissolution Event


A dissolution event occurs if there has been (i) a voluntary termination of PhunCoin, Inc.’s operations, (ii) a general assignment for the benefit of PhunCoin, Inc.’s creditors, (iii) a change of U.S. laws that make the use or issuance of PhunCoin or the Token Generation Event impractical or unfeasible, or (iv) any other liquidation, dissolution or winding up of PhunCoin, Inc.


In the event a dissolution event occurs prior to the termination of the Token Rights Agreement, if there are any remaining proceeds from the Rights offering that have not been utilized by PhunCoin, its operations or for the development of the PhunCoin Ecosystem, such remaining proceeds would be distributed pro rata to purchasers in the Rights offering following any distributions to holders of PhunCoin, Inc.’s capital stock or debt, if any.


No Voting Rights or Profit Share


Rights holders, (and eventual PhunCoin holders) have no voting rights and are not entitled to share in the profits or residual interest of Phunware, PhunCoin, Inc. or any subsidiaries of the Company.
