Note 2 - One Stone Exchange
On March 31, 2016, Magellan and One Stone entered into an Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”). The Exchange Agreement provides, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Exchange Agreement, for the transfer by One Stone to the Company of 100% of the outstanding shares of Magellan Series A convertible preferred stock (the “Series A Preferred Stock”) in consideration for the assignment to and assumption by One Stone of 100% of the outstanding membership interests in Nautilus Poplar LLC and 51% of the outstanding common units in Utah CO2 LLC (“Utah CO2,” and together with Nautilus Poplar LLC, the "CO2 Business"), as adjusted by the Cash Amount (as defined in the Exchange Agreement and discussed further below) (the “Exchange”).
The closing of the Exchange was subject to customary closing conditions, including, among others, the receipt of Magellan stockholder approval and the consent of West Texas State Bank ("WTSB") to release a guaranty provided by Magellan. The Exchange Agreement has been approved by each of the Special Committee and the Company’s Board of Directors. Stockholders of the Company were asked to vote on the approval of the Exchange Agreement at a stockholder meeting that took place on July 13, 2016, at which the Exchange Agreement was approved by the stockholders. One Stone was required to vote all shares of Series A Preferred Stock in favor of the Exchange Agreement at the meeting of Magellan stockholders. If the customary closing conditions had not been satisfied, and the Exchange Agreement had been terminated by either party as a result of the failure to obtain the requisite approval by Magellan stockholders, the Company would have been required to reimburse One Stone for all documented out-of-pocket fees and expenses incurred by One Stone in connection with the Exchange Agreement, subject to a maximum of $200 thousand in the aggregate. On August 1, 2016, the transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement closed and the Company received the Cash Amount, which amounted to $900 thousand.
Pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, on April 15, 2016, Magellan and One Stone i) entered into a Secured Promissory Note (the “Note”) pursuant to which One Stone made a loan to Magellan in the aggregate amount of $625 thousand (the “Loan Amount”) and ii) simultaneously entered into a Pledge Agreement pursuant to which Magellan pledged, assigned and granted to One Stone a security interest in the Company’s interests in MPA, as collateral for the loan. Magellan was required to use the borrowed amounts to satisfy transaction costs and pay certain outstanding accounts payable primarily related to the CO2 Business to maintain its ongoing operations between signing of the Exchange Agreement and closing. The Note did not bear interest up until closing of the Exchange, was expected to be forgiven upon closing of the Exchange, and if the Exchange had not closed, would have become due and payable on August 1, 2016, or, in the case of a breach of the Exchange Agreement by One Stone, August 1, 2017, and would have borne interest from the date of termination of the Exchange Agreement at a rate of the prime rate of interest plus 1% (4.5% at June 30, 2016). At the closing of the Exchange, the Loan Amount was deemed paid in full and no further amounts under the Note are required to be repaid by the Company.
The Exchange Agreement has been given economic effect as of September 30, 2015 (the “Effective Date”). At closing, One Stone was expected to pay the Company an amount in cash equal to i) any transaction costs One Stone has agreed to pay pursuant to the Exchange Agreement that have not been paid on or prior to closing, ii) minus (if positive) or plus (if negative) the net revenues and expenses attributable to NP after the Effective Date, plus iii) certain specified liabilities of NP actually paid by the Company or NP prior to closing, minus, (iv) the Loan Amount (the “Cash Amount”). The purpose of the Cash Amount is primarily to reimburse the Company for the funding of the operations of NP during the period between September 30, 2015, and the closing of the Exchange, which operations resulted in a loss in the aggregate for the period. At the end of June 2016, the Company provided a preliminary estimate of the Cash Amount, which amounted to $1.2 million. On August 1, 2016, the final amount agreed between the parties and paid by One Stone to the Company was $900 thousand. In addition, One Stone and Messrs. Gluzman and Israel agreed that the Company would not be required to pay the outstanding fees owed to Messrs. Gluzman and Israel as compensation for services as directors of the Company, which outstanding fees amounted to approximately $174 thousand in a combination of cash and stock of the Company.
The Exchange Agreement may have been terminated under certain circumstances, including in specified circumstances in connection with receipt of a Superior Proposal, as such term is defined in the Exchange Agreement. In connection with the termination of the Exchange Agreement in the event of a Superior Proposal, a breach by the Company of the non-solicitation provision, or following a change by the Board of its recommendation to stockholders, in addition to amounts discussed above, the Company would have been required to pay to One Stone a termination fee of $750 thousand.
