|Business Combinations [Abstract]
On November 30, 2021, through the execution of a share purchase agreement, the Company acquired 100% of the voting equity interests of exactEarth for a purchase price of $128,953, accounted for as a business combination. The acquisition of exactEarth accelerates growth of Spire’s existing maritime business with additional data solutions, cross-selling opportunities, and expansion of the Company’s geographic footprint. Each outstanding share of exactEarth common stock was exchanged for 0.1 shares of Spire Class A common stock and $1.95505 per share in cash.
In 2021, the Company incurred $4,733 of acquisition-related costs. These expenses are included in general and administrative expense in the consolidated statements of operations for the year ended December 31, 2021.
The purchase price components are summarized in the following table:
Represents the fair value of 5,230,167 shares of Spire Class A common share transferred as of the November 30, 2021 ("acquisition date") as consideration (based on the closing market price of $4.27 per share on the acquisition date) consisting of 4,984,225 shares issued for outstanding exactEarth shares, in addition to 100,047 and 145,895 shares to settle exactEarth stock options and RSUs, respectively.
Included in the cash consideration are:
$97,454 for outstanding exactEarth shares,
$8,888 cash settlement of exactEarth stock options, RSUs and deferred stock units, and
$3,250 related to acquisition fees of exactEarth paid by Spire upon the closing of the acquisition.
$2,972 was treated as post-combination expense in connection with the replacement of exactEarth’s outstanding equity awards. This amount has been reflected in the consolidated statements of operations for the year ended December 31, 2021.
Purchase Price Allocation
The purchase price was allocated to the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values as of the acquisition date, with the excess recorded to goodwill. The recognition of goodwill, none of which is deductible for income tax purposes, was made attributable to the workforce of the acquired business on synergies expected to arise and strategic benefits the Company expects to realize from the acquisition.
The following table summarizes the acquisition date fair value allocation of the exactEarth assets acquired and liabilities assumed:
The purchase price allocation to identifiable finite-lived intangible assets acquired was as follows:
The Company applied the relief-from-royalty method to estimate the fair values of the developed technology and trade names, and the multi-period excess earnings method to estimate the fair values of the customer relationships and backlog for the acquired intangible assets.
Unaudited Pro Forma Financial Information
The following unaudited pro forma information presents the combined results of operations as if the acquisition of exactEarth had been completed in the beginning of the applicable comparable prior annual reporting period. The unaudited pro forma results include adjustments primarily related to the following: (i) amortization associated with estimates for the acquired intangible assets; (ii) depreciation of the property plant and equipment step-up in fair value (iii) expense relating to replacement awards; and (iv) the inclusion of acquisition costs as of the earliest period presented.
The unaudited pro forma results do not reflect any cost saving synergies from operating efficiencies or the effect of the incremental costs incurred from integrating exactEarth. Accordingly, these unaudited pro forma results are presented for informational purposes only and are not necessarily indicative of what the actual results of operations of the combined company would have been if the acquisitions had occurred at the beginning of the period presented, nor are they indicative of future results of operations:
Revenues and losses attributable to the acquired business recognized within the consolidated statements of operations between the date of the acquisition and December 31, 2021 were $1,479 and $1,470, respectively.
