NOTE 16. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY
The Company’s Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation authorizes the Company to issue 50,000,000 shares of $0.0001 par value Common Stock, of which 6,000,000 shares are designated and authorized as Class A Common Stock.
Each holder of Common Stock is entitled to one vote per share of Common Stock held on all matters submitted to a vote of the stockholders, including the election of directors. The Company’s Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation and Amended and Restated Bylaws do not provide for cumulative voting rights.
Each holder of Class A Common Stock is entitled to a number of votes that is equal to 1.1 times a fraction, the numerator of which is the sum of the shares of outstanding Common Stock, including the Class A Common Stock, and the denominator of which is the number of outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock. Thus, the Class A Common Stock will at all times constitute a voting majority. Additionally, for a period of 10 years from the date of the first issuance of shares of Class A Common Stock (the “Class A Director Period”), the holders of record of the shares of Class A Common Stock (or other capital stock or securities issued upon conversion of or in exchange for the Class A Common Stock), exclusively and as a separate class, is entitled to appoint or elect the majority of the directors of the Company. Thus, the Class A Common Stock is entitled to elect the majority of the board of directors during the Class A Director Period.
The holders of the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock and Class A Common Stock are entitled to receive dividends, if any, as may be declared from time to time by the Company’s Board of Directors out of legally available funds.
In the event of the Company’s liquidation, dissolution or winding up, holders of Common Stock and Class A Common Stock will be entitled to share ratably in the net assets legally available for distribution to stockholders after the payment of all of the Company’s debts and other liabilities, subject to the satisfaction of any liquidation preference granted to the holders of any outstanding shares of Preferred Stock.
Rights and Preference
Holders of the Company’s Common Stock and Class A Common Stock have no preemptive, conversion or subscription rights, and there is no redemption or sinking fund provisions applicable to either the Common Stock or the Class A Common Stock. The rights, preferences and privileges of the holders of Common Stock and Class A Common Stock are subject to, and may be adversely affected by, the rights of the holders of shares of any series of the Company’s Preferred Stock that are or may be issued.
8% Cumulative Convertible Class A Preferred Offering
In March 2021, the Company commenced an offering of 8% Cumulative Convertible Class A Preferred Stock (“Class A Preferred Stock”) with an aggregate minimum amount of $12.5 million and an aggregate maximum amount of $30.0 million (“Class A Preferred Offering”). The Class A Preferred Offering ended on July 18, 2021. The Class A Preferred Stock was to automatically convert into the Company’s Common Stock upon a sale of the Company or a financing in an amount of at least $25.0 million within a year of the closing date of the Class A Preferred Offering (extendable by another six months at the Company’s option) at a discount of 15% to the per share qualified stock price. In the event that neither a sale of the Company nor a $25.0 million financing is completed, the Class A Preferred Stock was to have been exchanged for shares of Fortress common stock, at a 7.5% discount to the average Fortress common stock trading price over the 10-day period preceding such exchange.
The Company completed five closings in connection with the Class A Preferred Offering (“Closings”). In connection with the Closings, the Company issued an aggregate of 758,680 Class A Preferred shares at a price of $25.00 per share, for gross proceeds of approximately $19.0 million. Following the payment of placement agent fees of $1.9 million, and other expenses of $0.1 million, the Company received approximately $17.0 million of net proceeds. In connection with the Company’s IPO, the Company issued 2,231,346 shares of Common Stock in connection with the conversion of all of the Preferred Stock. There are currently no shares of Class A Preferred Stock outstanding as of September 30, 2022.
