6. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

Common Stock

The authorized Common Stock of the Company includes up to 100,000,000 shares. Holders of the Company’s Common Stock are entitled to one vote for each share of Common Stock. As of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, there were 4,397,901 and 4,152,789 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding and not subject to possible redemption (of which there are 7,238,641 and 14,309,217 such shares as of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018).

Preferred Stock

The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock with such designations, voting and other rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Board of Directors. As of June 30, 2019, there were no shares of preferred stock issued and outstanding.

Warrants

Warrants will only be exercisable for whole shares at $11.50 per share. As a result, at least four Units must be purchased in order for each holder to receive shares of common stock for all of the Warrants acquired upon their exercise. Under the terms of the Warrant agreement dated December 12, 2017, the Company has agreed to use its best efforts to file a new registration statement under the Securities Act, following the completion of the Business Combination, for the registration of the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants included in the Units.

No fractional shares will be issued upon exercise of the Warrants. If, upon exercise of the Warrants, a holder would be entitled to receive a fractional interest in a share, the Company will, upon exercise, round down to the nearest whole number the number of shares of common stock to be issued to the Warrant holder. Each Warrant will become exercisable on the later of 30 days after the completion of the Business Combination or 12 months from the closing of the Offering and will expire five years after the completion of the Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation. However, if the Company does not complete the Business Combination on or prior to the 18-month period (or 24-month period as described above) allotted to complete the Business Combination, the Warrants will expire at the end of such period. If the Company is unable to deliver registered shares of common stock to the holder upon exercise of the Warrants during the exercise period, there will be no net cash settlement of these Warrants and the Warrants will expire worthless, unless they may be exercised on a cashless basis in the circumstances described in the Warrant agreement. Once the Warrants (excluding the warrants sold in the Private Placement Units as discussed in Note 4) become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding Warrants in whole and not in part at a price of $0.01 per Warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption, only in the event that the last sale price of the Company’s shares of common stock equals or exceeds $18.00 per share for any 20 trading days within the 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day before the Company sends the notice of redemption to the Warrant holders.

As of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, there were 11,154,942 warrants outstanding.

Rights

Each holder of a right will receive one-tenth (1/10) of one share of common stock upon consummation of a Business Combination, even if the holder of such right redeemed all shares held by it in connection with a Business Combination. No fractional shares will be issued upon conversion of the rights. No additional consideration will be required to be paid by a holder of rights in order to receive its additional shares upon consummation of a Business Combination, as the consideration related thereto has been included in the Unit purchase price paid for by investors in the Offering. If the Company enters into a definitive agreement for a Business Combination in which the Company will not be the surviving entity, the definitive agreement will provide for the holders of rights to receive the same per share consideration the holders of the common stock will receive in the transaction on an as-converted into common stock basis and each holder of a right will be required to affirmatively covert its rights in order to receive one-tenth (1/10) of one share underlying each right (without paying additional consideration) upon completion of a Business Combination. The shares issuable upon exchange of the rights will be freely tradable (except to the extent held by affiliates of the Company).

If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination on or prior to the  24-month period as described in Note 1) allotted to complete the Business Combination and the Company liquidates the funds held in the Trust Account, holders of rights will not receive any of such funds with respect to their rights, nor will they receive any distribution from the Company’s assets held outside of the Trust Account with respect to such rights, and the rights will expire worthless. Further, there are no contractual penalties for failure to deliver securities to the holders of the rights upon consummation of a Business Combination. Additionally, in no event will the Company be required to net cash settle the rights.

As of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, there were 14,873,256 rights outstanding.      

Stock-based Compensation

Included in the outstanding shares of Common Stock as of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018 are 60,000 shares issued in consideration of future services to the Company’s independent directors. These shares are subject to forfeiture if these individuals resign or are terminated for cause prior to the completion of the Business Combination.  

If a Business Combination occurs and these shares have not been previously forfeited, the fair value of the common stock on the date the shares vest will be recognized as stock-based compensation when the completion of the Business Combination becomes probable.
