Note 2. Cancer Genetics, Inc. Merger


The Company formerly known as Cancer Genetics, Inc. (“CGI”), StemoniX and CGI Acquisition, Inc. (“Merger Sub”) entered into a merger agreement on August 21, 2020, which was amended on February 8, 2021 and February 26, 2021(as amended, the “Merger Agreement”).   Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub was merged (the “Merger”) with and into StemoniX on March 30, 2021, with StemoniX surviving the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. For U.S. federal income tax purposes, the Merger qualified as a tax-free “reorganization”. Concurrent with the Merger closing, the Company changed its name to Vyant Bio, Inc. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, upon consummation of the Merger, the Company    issued (i) an aggregate of 17,977,544 shares of VYNT common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”) to the holders of StemoniX capital stock (after giving effect to the conversion of all StemoniX preferred shares and StemoniX 2020 Convertible Notes) and StemoniX warrants (which does not include a certain warrant (the “Investor Warrant”) issued to a certain StemoniX convertible note holder (the “Major Investor”)), (ii) options to purchase an aggregate of 891,780 shares of Common Stock to the holders of StemoniX options with exercise prices ranging from $0.66 to $4.61 per share and a weighted average exercise price of $1.46 per share, and (iii) a warrant (the “Major Investor Warrant”) to the Major Investor, expiring February 23, 2026 to purchase 143,890 shares of Common Stock at a price of $5.9059 per share in exchange of the Investor Warrant.


The Merger was accounted for as a reverse acquisition with StemoniX being the accounting acquirer of CGI using the acquisition method of accounting. Under acquisition accounting, the assets and liabilities (including executory contracts, commitments and other obligations) of CGI, as of March 30, 2021, the effective time of the Merger were recorded at their respective fair values and added to those of StemoniX. Any excess of purchase price consideration over the fair values of the identifiable net assets is recorded as goodwill. Total consideration paid by StemoniX   in the Merger amounted to $59.9 million, which represents the fair value of CGI’s 11,007,186 shares of Common Stock or $50.74 million, 2,157,686 Common Stock warrants or $9.04 million and 55,907 Common Stock options outstanding on the date of the Merger with a fair value of $139 thousand. In addition at the time of the Merger, existing StemoniX shareholders received an additional 804,711 incremental shares due to the conversion ratio agreed to in the Merger Agreement.


StemoniX and CGI incurred $2.145  million of costs associated with the Merger that have been reported on the consolidated statement of operations as Merger related costs for the period ended March 31, 2021. StemoniX’s statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2020 included $1.44 million of merger related costs incurred in the second half of 2020. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, accounts payable includes $63 thousand and $1.0 million of Merger-related costs.

We have completed preliminary valuation analyses necessary to assess the fair values of the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed and the amount of goodwill to be recognized as of the acquisition date. These fair values were based on management’s estimates and assumptions; however, the amounts shown above are preliminary in nature and are subject to adjustment, including income tax related amounts, as additional information is obtained about the facts and circumstances that existed as of the acquisition date. Accordingly, there may be adjustments to the assigned values of acquired assets and liabilities, including, but not limited to, intangible assets and property and equipment and their respective estimated useful lives, that may also give rise to material increases or decreases in the amounts of depreciation and amortization expense. The final determination of the fair values and related income tax impacts will be completed as soon as practicable, and within the measurement period of up to one year from the acquisition date. Any adjustments to provisional amounts that are identified during the measurement period will be recorded in the reporting period in which the adjustment is determined. The Company has also not yet completed its fair value analysis for a number of items including the vivoPharm cell bank, deferred revenue and discontinued operations liabilities. Of the amount of goodwill acquired in the Merger, no portion is deductible for tax purposes.


The Company recognized intangible assets related to the Merger, which consist of the tradename valued at $1.5 million with an estimated useful life of ten years and customer relationships valued at $8.0 million with an estimated useful life of ten years. The value of the vivoPharm tradename was determined using the relief from royalty method based on analysis of profitability and review of market royalty rates. The Company determined that a 1.0% royalty rate was appropriate given the business-to-business nature of the vivoPharm operations. The value of the vivoPharm customer relationships was determined using an excess earnings method based on projected discounted cash flows and historic customer data. Key assumptions in this analysis included an estimated 10% annual customer attrition rate based on historical vivoPharm operations, a blended U.S. federal, state and Australian income tax rate of 27.1%, a present value factor of 8.5% as well as revenue, cost of revenue and operating expense assumptions regarding the future growth, operating expenses, including corporate overhead charges, and required capital investments.


These intangible assets are classified as Level 3 measurements within the fair value hierarchy.


The following presents the unaudited pro forma combined financial information as if the Merger had occurred as of January 1, 2020:
