|Acquisition of Shanghai Engin Digital Technology Co. Ltd||
On December 20, 2019, the Company acquired all the issued and outstanding stock of Shanghai Engin Digital Technology Co. Ltd., a solar design, development and engineering company and its subsidiary. Engin’s expertise in solar technologies provides the Company another green technology to market and develop internationally alongside our manufacturing. The acquisition was concluded concurrently with two groups. The first purchase of the 75% interest was acquired for consideration of $5,864,234 (¥41,000,000) upon signing (paid), plus a further $2,145,002 (¥15,000,000) due by March 20, 2020 (partially paid) and a final conditional payment of $2,860,002 (¥20,000,000) by June 30, 2020 (not paid). The Company has made a partial payment of $1,072,961 (¥7,500,000) on the outstanding amount of $2,145,002 (¥15,000,000). The remaining 25% interest was acquired for consideration of 125,000 new shares of the Company (issued after year end), plus a further conditional $286,000 (¥2,000,000) payable by June 30, 2020 (not paid). The required conditions for the final payment were not met by the selling party. As a result, the company derecognized the liability and recorded a gain of $3,240,250 (¥22,000,000). On June 19, 2020, Engin’s name was changed to Pacific Green Technologies (Shanghai) Co. Ltd.
Total purchase consideration is estimated at $11,052,307, inclusive of the fair value of the conditional payments, which were considered probable at the acquisition date. The 125,000 shares in the Company have been estimated to have a fair value of $368,750 or $2.95 per share. This share price is determined on the basis of the closing market price of the Company’s common shares at the date of acquisition.
The results of operations of the acquired business and the fair value of the acquired assets and assumed liabilities are included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements with effect from the date of the acquisition. The purchase consideration has been applied to cash of $2,063,358, other net working capital of Engin of $1,024,461, property and equipment of $931,554, intangible assets of $4,112,462, and cumulative translation adjustment of $470,847. The residual value of consideration after applying it to the carrying values of assets and liabilities acquired and fair value adjustments, resulted in a goodwill allocation of $3,760,079. The goodwill paid as part of the acquisition is expected to be tax deductible. The measurement period will not exceed one year from the acquisition date.
