NOTE 6 – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT
On November 30, 2021, Kubient entered into and consummated an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) between the Company and MediaCrossing Inc., a Delaware corporation (“MediaCrossing”), pursuant to which the Company acquired certain assets and liabilities that were critical to continue to operate the business of MediaCrossing for (i) $500,000 in cash and (ii) if the acquired business achieves certain milestones in 2022, up to 822,369 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Earnout Shares”) (the “Transaction”). The Earnout Shares had a fair value of $2.55 as of the acquisition date. The Earnout Shares were measured using a Monte Carlo simulation. Key assumptions used in the fair value assessment consisted of revenue projections (which were used to estimate the number of Earnout Shares issuable), discount rate and standard deviation. The fair value measurement of the contingent consideration is based on significant inputs not observed in the market and thus represents a Level 3 measurement. Level 3 instruments are valued based on unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and reflect Kubient’s own assumptions in measuring fair value.
On September 30, 2022, the Company recomputed the fair value of its Earnout Shares as $0 using the Monte Carlo simulation. The Company recorded a gain on the change in fair value of the contingent consideration of $0 and $613,000 during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively. The loss is primarily due to the decline in the Company’s stock price as well as changes in the likelihood that forecasted milestones would be met for the remainder of 2022.
The following table sets forth a summary of the changes in the fair value of Level 3 liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis:
The entire disclosure for the fair value of financial instruments (as defined), including financial assets and financial liabilities (collectively, as defined), and the measurements of those instruments as well as disclosures related to the fair value of non-financial assets and liabilities. Such disclosures about the financial instruments, assets, and liabilities would include: (1) the fair value of the required items together with their carrying amounts (as appropriate); (2) for items for which it is not practicable to estimate fair value, disclosure would include: (a) information pertinent to estimating fair value (including, carrying amount, effective interest rate, and maturity, and (b) the reasons why it is not practicable to estimate fair value; (3) significant concentrations of credit risk including: (a) information about the activity, region, or economic characteristics identifying a concentration, (b) the maximum amount of loss the entity is exposed to based on the gross fair value of the related item, (c) policy for requiring collateral or other security and information as to accessing such collateral or security, and (d) the nature and brief description of such collateral or security; (4) quantitative information about market risks and how such risks are managed; (5) for items measured on both a recurring and nonrecurring basis information regarding the inputs used to develop the fair value measurement; and (6) for items presented in the financial statement for which fair value measurement is elected: (a) information necessary to understand the reasons for the election, (b) discussion of the effect of fair value changes on earnings, (c) a description of [similar groups] items for which the election is made and the relation thereof to the balance sheet, the aggregate carrying value of items included in the balance sheet that are not eligible for the election; (7) all other required (as defined) and desired information.
