Trio Merger Corp.
(A Company In the Development Stage)
  
Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

 

Note 1 — Organization, Plan of Business Operations and Liquidity

 

Trio Merger Corp. (the “Company”) was incorporated in Delaware on February 2, 2011 as a blank check company whose objective is to acquire, through a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, or other similar business combination, one or more businesses or entities (a “Business Combination”).

 

The Company is considered to be a development stage company and as such, the condensed financial statements are prepared in accordance with the Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) topic 915 “Development Stage Entities.” The Company is subject to all of the risks associated with development stage companies.

 

All activity through June 30, 2012 relates to the Company’s formation, initial public offering (“Offering”) and identifying and investigating prospective target businesses with which to consummate a Business Combination.  

 

The registration statement (“Registration Statement”) for the Offering was declared effective on June 20, 2011. On June 21, 2011, the Company filed a new registration statement to increase the size of the Offering by 20% pursuant to Rule 462(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Company consummated the Offering on June 24, 2011 and received proceeds net of transaction costs of $57,434,789 and $3,550,000 from the private placement of warrants (“Insider Warrants”) to the initial stockholders of the Company (“Initial Stockholders”) and the underwriters. On June 24, 2011, the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option and on June 27, 2011, the Company received net proceeds of $8,685,000. Subject to the NASDAQ stipulation that a target business have a fair market value of at least 80% of the balance in the trust account at the time of the execution of a definitive agreement for our initial business combination, the Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Offering and Insider Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be generally applied toward consummating a Business Combination with one or more businesses or entities. Furthermore, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully effect a Business Combination.

 

An amount of $69,210,000 or approximately $10.03 per Unit sold in the Offering (including the $3,550,000 of proceeds from the sale of Insider Warrants and $8,610,000 of proceeds from the closing of the over-allotment option) was placed in a trust account (‘‘Trust Account’’) and held as cash or invested in United States treasuries having a maturity of 180 days or less until the earlier of (i) the consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination, (ii) the Company’s failure to consummate a Business Combination within the prescribed time and (iii) the Common Stock traded at or below $9.60 per share, subject to certain criteria discussed below. In the event that the Common Stock traded at or below $9.60 per share, there could be released to the Company from the Trust Account amounts necessary to purchase up to 25% of the shares sold in the Offering (1,725,000 shares). Pursuant to the 10b5-1 plan that the Company entered into on June 21, 2011 (the “Share Repurchase Plan”), such purchases commenced on August 21, 2011 and were to continue until the earlier of (i) the repurchase of 1,725,000 shares or (ii) the date the Company announced an initial Business Combination. Any such purchases were to be made only in open market transactions. The Share Repurchase Plan required the Company to purchase its shares at a price per share not to exceed the market price at any time when the market price was equal to or below $9.60 per share. The Share Repurchase Plan was structured so as not to require compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and purchases under the plan were to be made outside of the requirements of Rule 10b-18. All shares purchased by the Company were cancelled. On March 14, 2012, the Company’s Board of Directors elected to terminate the 10b5-1 share repurchase plan in order to pursue a listing on a national securities exchange. Through March 14, 2012, a total of 783,145 shares had been repurchased under the plan, at a cost of $7,539,736.

 

Placing funds in the Trust Account may not protect those funds from third party claims against the Company. Although the Company will seek to have all vendors, service providers, prospective target businesses or other entities it engages, execute agreements with the Company waiving any claim of any kind in or to any monies held in the Trust Account, there is no guarantee that such persons will execute such agreements. The Company’s Chief Executive Officer has agreed that he will be liable under certain circumstances to ensure that the proceeds in the Trust Account are not reduced by the claims of target businesses or vendors or other entities that are owed money by the Company for services rendered, contracted for or products sold to the Company. However, there can be no assurance that he will be able to satisfy those obligations should they arise. The remaining net proceeds (not held in the Trust Account) may be used to pay for business, legal and accounting due diligence on prospective acquisitions and continuing general and administrative expenses. Additionally, the interest earned on the Trust Account balance may be released to the Company to fund working capital requirements as well as for any amounts that are necessary to pay the Company’s tax obligations.

Trio Merger Corp.
(A Company In the Development Stage)
  
Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

 

The Company, after signing a definitive agreement for the acquisition of a target business, is required to provide stockholders who acquired shares in the Offering (“Public Stockholders”) with the opportunity to convert their Public Shares for a pro rata share of the Trust Account. In the event that stockholders owning more than 5,620,923 shares (approximately 81.46% of the shares sold as part of the Units in the Offering, as adjusted for repurchases through March 14, 2012) exercise their conversion rights or are sold to the Company in connection with any tender offer, each as described below, the Business Combination will not be consummated. All of the Initial Stockholders will vote any shares they then hold in favor of any proposed Business Combination and will waive any conversion rights they may have in connection with the Business Combination and will not sell any shares to the Company in any tender offer in connection with the Business Combination pursuant to letter agreements executed prior to the Offering.

 

In connection with any proposed Business Combination, the Company will either (i) seek stockholder approval of an initial Business Combination at a meeting called for such purpose at which stockholders may seek to convert their shares, regardless of whether they vote for or against the proposed Business Combination or (ii) provide its stockholders with the opportunity to sell their shares to the Company by means of a tender offer (and thereby avoid the need for a stockholder vote). If the Company seeks stockholder approval of an initial Business Combination, any Public Stockholder voting against such proposed Business Combination will be entitled to demand that his shares be converted for $10.00 per share. In addition, any Public Stockholder will have the right to vote for the proposed Business Combination and demand that his shares be converted for a full pro rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account (approximately $10.08 per share). If the Company decides to engage in a tender offer, each Public Stockholder will be entitled to receive a full pro rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account (approximately $10.08 per share).

 

As the company repurchased shares, the conversion threshold (of approximately 81.46% as adjusted for repurchases through June 30, 2012) was reduced to a percentage such that at least $5,000,000 of funds held in the Trust Account are released to the Company upon closing of the Business Combination. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company provides that a Public Stockholder, together with any affiliate or other person with whom such Public Stockholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (within the meaning of Section 13 of the Exchange Act), will be restricted from seeking conversion rights with respect to an aggregate of more than 12.5% of the shares of common stock sold in the Offering (but only with respect to the amount over 12.5% of the shares of common stock sold in the Offering). The Company will determine that a “group” exists based on Public Stockholders filing a Schedule 13D or 13G indicating the presence of a group or acknowledging to the Company that they are acting, or intend to act, as a group, or based on other information available to the Company.

 

Pursuant to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, if the Company does not consummate a Business Combination by December 24, 2012, or June 24, 2013 if the Company has executed a definitive agreement for a Business Combination by December 24, 2012 but has not consummated such Business Combination by such date, the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than five business days thereafter, redeem 100% of the outstanding public shares held by the Public Stockholders, at a per-share price, payable in cash, as described below, which redemption will completely extinguish Public Stockholders’ rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any), subject to applicable law, and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the Company’s remaining stockholders and its board of directors, dissolve and liquidate, subject (in the case of (ii) and (iii) above) to the Company’s obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law. The Initial Stockholders have agreed to waive their rights to share in any distribution with respect to their Founder’s Shares (defined below).

 

In the event of a redemption of 100% of the public shares, if the Company has not presented to Public Stockholders a proposed Business Combination within the required time period, Public Stockholders shall be entitled to receive a pro rata share of the Trust Account (approximately $10.08 per share). If, prior to the Company’s redemption of 100% of the public shares, the Company has presented to Public Stockholders a proposed Business Combination that ultimately was not completed, the Public Stockholders that either voted against the last proposed Business Combination before redemption of 100% of the public shares or did not vote on such Business Combination or sought to sell their shares to the Company in any tender offer commenced in connection with such proposed Business Combination shall be entitled to receive only $10.00 per share, and those Public Stockholders who either voted for the proposed Business Combination or did not seek to sell their shares to the Company in any tender offer and continued to hold their shares until redemption of 100% of the public shares shall be entitled to receive a pro rata share of the Trust Account (approximately $10.08 per share).

Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

 

Pursuant to letter agreements executed June 21, 2011 with the Company and the underwriter, the Initial Stockholders have waived their right to receive distributions with respect to their Founder’s Shares (defined below) upon the Company’s redemption of 100% of the outstanding public shares held by the Public Stockholders.

 

The Company anticipates that in order to fund its working capital requirements, the Company will need to use all of the remaining funds not held in trust, the interest earned on the funds held in the trust account, as well as enter into contingent fee arrangements with its vendors. On April 25, 2012 the Company issued a $100,000 principal amount unsecured promissory note to Eric S. Rosenfeld (the “Holder”), the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and one of the Company’s Initial Stockholders. The loan is non interest bearing, and is payable in cash or Warrants at the consummation of a Business Combination. The principal balance of the note may be converted, at the holders option, to Warrants at a price of $0.50 per warrant. The terms of these Warrants will be identical to the Insider Warrants. The Company may need to raise additional capital through additional loans or additional investments from its Initial Stockholders, officers, directors, or third parties. None of the Initial Stockholders, officers or directors is under any obligation to advance funds to, or to invest in, the Company. Accordingly, the Company may not be able to obtain additional financing. If the Company is unable to raise additional capital, it may be required to take additional measures to conserve liquidity, which could include, but not necessarily be limited to, curtailing operations, suspending the pursuit of its business plan, and controlling overhead expenses. The Company cannot provide any assurance that new financing will be available to it on commercially acceptable terms, if at all. The Company has no present revenue, and the Company’s cash and working capital as of June 30, 2012 are not sufficient to complete its planned activities for the current year. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Note 2 — Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal accruals) considered for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2012 or any other period. The Condensed Balance Sheet data at December 31, 2011 was derived from the Company’s audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. The accompanying condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s annual report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 12, 2012.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all short-term investments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 740 Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). ASC 740 requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for both the expected impact of differences between the financial statements and tax basis of assets and liabilities and for the expected future tax benefit to be derived from tax loss and tax credit carry forwards. ASC 740 additionally requires a valuation allowance to be established when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

9
 

 

Trio Merger Corp.
(A Company In the Development Stage)
  
Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

 

ASC 740 also clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. ASC 740 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. The Company is required to file income tax returns in the United States (federal) and in various state and local jurisdictions. Based on the Company’s evaluation for the period from February 2, 2011 (inception) through December 31, 2011, it has been concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in the Company’s financial statements. The Company believes that its income tax positions and deductions would be sustained on audit and does not anticipate any adjustments that would result in a material change to its financial position.

 

The Company’s policy for recording interest and penalties associated with audits is to record such expense as a component of income tax expense. There were no amounts accrued for penalties or interest as of or during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. Management is currently unaware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviations from its position.

 

Loss Per Share

 

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of ASC 260, “Earnings Per Share.”  Loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.  Common shares subject to possible conversion at June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2012 of 6,399,999 and 5,620,923, respectively, have been excluded from the calculation of basic loss per share since such shares, if converted, only participate in their share of the trust earnings.  At June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011, the Company did not have any dilutive securities and other contracts that could, potentially, be exercised and converted into common stock and then share in the earnings of the Company.  As a result, diluted loss per common share is the same as basic loss per common share for the period.  The Company has not considered the effect of warrants to purchase 14,000,000 shares of common stock or the unit purchase option described in Note 3 in the calculation of diluted loss per share, since the exercise of the warrants and the unit purchase option are contingent upon the occurrence of future events.

 

Concentration of credit risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash accounts in a financial institution, which at times, may exceed the Federal depository insurance coverage of $250,000.  At June 30, 2012, the Company had not experienced losses on these accounts and management believed the Company was not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.

 

Securities held in Trust Account

 

At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the assets in the Trust Account were held in cash and U.S. Treasury Securities with maturities of less than 180 days.

 

Fair value measurements

 

Fair value is defined as an exit price, representing the amount that would be received upon the sale of an asset or payment to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. Fair value is a market-based measurement that is determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. A three-tier fair value hierarchy is used to prioritize the inputs in measuring fair value as follows:

 

  · Level 1. Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets;
  · Level 2. Inputs, other than quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and
  ·  Level 3. Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.

 

Assets and liabilities measured at fair value are based on one or more of three valuation techniques identified in the tables below. The valuation techniques are as follows:

 

  (a). Market approach. Prices and other relevant information generated by market transactions involving identical or comparable assets or liabilities;
  (b). Cost approach. Amount that would be required to replace the service capacity of an asset (replacement cost); and
  (c). Income approach. Techniques to convert future amounts to a single present amount based on market expectations (including present value techniques, option-pricing and excess earnings models).

Common stock subject to possible conversion

 

The Company accounts for its common stock subject to possible conversion in accordance with the guidance enumerated in ASC 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity”.   Common stock subject to mandatory conversion (if any) is classified as a liability instrument and is measured at fair value. Conditionally convertible common stock (including common stock that features conversion rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to conversion upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. The Company’s common stock features certain conversion rights that are considered by the Company to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the common stock subject to possible conversion is presented as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity section of the Company’s condensed balance sheet.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the accompanying condensed financial statements.

Note 3 —Initial Public Offering and Insider Warrants

 

On June 24, 2011, the Company sold 6,000,000 units (“Units”) at a price of $10.00 per unit in the Offering. On June 24, 2011 the underwriters exercised their full over-allotment option and on June 27, 2011 purchased an additional 900,000 units subject to such over-allotment option.  Each unit consists of one share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001, and one warrant (‘‘Warrants’’). The common stock and Warrants began separate trading on August 2, 2011.  Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of common stock at a price of $7.50 commencing on the completion of a Business Combination and expiring three years from the completion of a Business Combination, or earlier upon redemption. The Company may redeem the Warrants at a price of $0.01 per Warrant upon 30 days’ notice, only in the event that the last sale price of the shares of common stock is at least $12.50 per share for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period (“30-Day Trading Period”) ending on the third day prior to the date on which notice of redemption is given and there is a current registration statement in effect with respect to the shares of common stock underlying such Warrants commencing five business days prior to the 30-Day Trading Period and continuing each day thereafter until the date of redemption. If the Company redeems the Warrants as described above, management will have the option to require any holder that wishes to exercise his Warrant to do so on a “cashless basis.” In such event, the holder would pay the exercise price by surrendering his Warrants for that number of shares of common stock equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the product of (i) the number of shares of common stock underlying the Warrants, and (ii) the difference between the exercise price of the Warrants and the “fair market value” (defined below), by (y) the fair market value. The “fair market value” shall mean the average reported last sale price of the shares of common stock for the 10 trading days ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the notice of redemption is sent to holders of Warrants. In accordance with the warrant agreement relating to the Warrants sold and issued in the Offering, the Company is only required to use its best efforts to maintain the effectiveness of the registration statement covering the Warrants. There are no contractual penalties for failure to deliver securities, if a registration statement is not effective at the time of exercise. Additionally, in the event that a registration statement is not effective at the time of exercise, the holder of such Warrant shall not be entitled to exercise such Warrant for cash and in no event (whether in the case of a registration statement not being effective or otherwise) will the Company be required to net cash settle the Warrant exercise. However, if the Company has not filed with the SEC a registration statement covering the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants and a prospectus relating to such shares of common stock is not effective within six months from the completion of a Business Combination, commencing on that day, Warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period thereafter when the Company has failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise Warrants on a cashless basis.

  

The Company paid the underwriters in the Offering an underwriting discount of 3.5% ($2,415,000) of the gross proceeds of the Offering.  The Company also issued a unit purchase option, for $100, to EarlyBirdCapital, Inc. (‘‘EBC’’) and its designees to purchase 600,000 units at an exercise price of $11.00 per unit. The unit purchase option will be exercisable commencing on the later to occur of the consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination or June 21, 2012 and will expire on June 20, 2016. The units issuable upon exercise of this option are identical to the units sold in the Offering. The Company accounted for the fair value of the unit purchase option, inclusive of the receipt of $100 cash payment, as an expense of the Offering resulting in a charge directly to stockholders’ equity. The Company estimated that the fair value of this unit purchase option is approximately $1,774,030, or $2.96 per unit using a Black-Scholes option-pricing model. The fair value of the unit purchase option to be granted to the underwriter is estimated as of the date of grant using the following assumptions: (1) expected volatility of 35%, (2) risk-free interest rate of 1.40% and (3) expected life of five years. The unit purchase option may be exercised for cash or on a “cashless” basis, at the holder’s option (except in the case of a forced cashless exercise upon the Company’s redemption of the Warrants, as described above), such that the holder may use the appreciated value of the unit purchase option (the difference between the exercise prices of the unit purchase option and the underlying Warrants and the market price of the Units and underlying shares of common stock) to exercise the unit purchase option without the payment of any cash. The holder of the unit purchase option will be entitled to certain demand and piggy-back registration rights. The Company will have no obligation to net cash settle the exercise of the unit purchase option or the Warrants underlying the unit purchase option. The holder of the unit purchase option will not be entitled to exercise the unit purchase option or the Warrants underlying the unit purchase option unless a registration statement covering the securities underlying the unit purchase option is effective or an exemption from registration is available. If the holder is unable to exercise the unit purchase option or underlying Warrants, the unit purchase option or Warrants, as applicable, will expire worthless.

 

Simultaneously with the Offering, the Initial Stockholders of the Company and underwriters purchased 7,100,000 Insider Warrants at $0.50 per warrant (for an aggregate purchase price of $3,550,000) from the Company. All of the proceeds received from these purchases were placed in the Trust Account. The Insider Warrants are identical to the warrants underlying the Units sold in the Offering except that: (i) the Insider Warrants were purchased pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, (ii) the Insider Warrants are non-redeemable and (iii) the Insider Warrants are exercisable for cash or on a ‘‘cashless’’ basis, in each case, if held by the initial holders or permitted transferees.

Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

 

The Initial Stockholders and the holders of the Insider Warrants (or underlying shares) are entitled to registration rights with respect to their Founder’s Shares (defined below) and Insider Warrants (or underlying shares) pursuant to an agreement signed on June 21, 2011. The holders of the majority of the founding shares are entitled to demand that the Company register these shares at any time commencing three months prior to the first anniversary of the consummation of a Business Combination. The holders of the Insider Warrants (or underlying shares) are entitled to demand that the Company register these securities at any time after the Company consummates a Business Combination. In addition, the Initial Stockholders and holders of the Insider Warrants (or underlying shares) have certain ‘‘piggy-back’’ registration rights on registration statements filed after the Company’s consummation of a Business Combination.

 

Note 4 —Note Payable to Stockholder

 

The Company issued a $100,000 principal amount unsecured promissory note to Eric S. Rosenfeld, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and one of the Company’s Initial Stockholders, on February 25, 2011. The loan was payable without interest on the earlier of February 25, 2012 or the closing of the Offering. The Company repaid this loan from the proceeds of the Offering that were not placed in the Trust Account.

 

On April 25, 2012 the Company issued a $100,000 principal amount unsecured promissory note to Eric S. Rosenfeld (the “Holder”), the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and one of the Company’s Initial Stockholders. The loan is non interest bearing, and is payable in cash or Warrants at the consummation of a Business Combination. The principal balance of the note may be converted, at the holders option, to Warrants at a price of $0.50 per warrant. The terms of these Warrants will be identical to the Insider Warrants.

 

Note 5 —Commitments

 

The Company presently occupies office space provided by an affiliate of the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Such affiliate has agreed that, until the Company consummates a Business Combination, it will make such office space, as well as certain office and secretarial services, available to the Company, as may be required by the Company from time to time. The Company agreed to pay such affiliate an aggregate of $10,000 per month for such services commencing on June 24, 2011.

 

Pursuant to letter agreements executed June 21, 2011 with the Company and the underwriter, the Initial Stockholders have waived their right to receive distributions with respect to their Founder’s Shares (defined below) upon the Company’s redemption of 100% of the outstanding public shares held by the Public Stockholders.

 

The Company has engaged EBC on a non-exclusive basis, to act as its advisor and investment banker in connection with its initial Business Combination and to provide it with assistance in negotiating and structuring the terms of its initial Business Combination. The Company will pay EBC a cash fee of $2,415,000 for such services upon the consummation of its initial Business Combination.

 

 Note 6 —Investment in Trust Account

 

Subsequent to the Offering, an amount of $69,210,000 of the net proceeds of the Offering was deposited in the Trust Account and has been held as cash and/or invested in United States treasuries having a maturity of 180 days or less.  

 

As of June 30, 2012, investment securities in the Company’s Trust Account consisted of $25,984,589 (including accrued interest) in United States Treasury Bills and $35,700,562 in a “held as cash” account. As of December 31, 2011, investment securities in the Company’s Trust Account consisted of $25,994,798 (including accrued interest) in United States Treasury Bills and $35,677,070 in a “held as cash” account. The Company classifies its United States Treasury and equivalent securities as held-to-maturity in accordance with FASB ASC 320, “Investments – Debt and Equity Securities.” Held-to-maturity securities are those securities which the Company has the ability and intent to hold until maturity. Held-to-maturity treasury securities are recorded at amortized cost on the accompanying condensed balance sheets and adjusted for the amortization or accretion of premiums or discounts.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “continue,” or the negative of such terms or other similar expressions. Factors that might cause or contribute to such a discrepancy include, but are not limited to, those described in our other Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings. References to “we”, “us”, “our” or the “Company” are to Trio Merger Corp., except where the context requires otherwise. The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our condensed financial statements and related notes thereto included elsewhere in this report.

 

Overview

 

We are a blank check company in the development stage, formed on February 2, 2011 to serve as a vehicle to effect a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition or other similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities. We are actively searching for a target business.

 

We presently have no revenue, have had losses since inception from incurring formation costs and have no other operations other than the active solicitation of a target business with which to complete a business combination. We have relied upon the sale of our securities and loans from our officers and directors to fund our operations.

 

The registration statement for our initial public offering was declared effective on June 20, 2011. On June 21, 2011, we filed a new registration statement to increase the size of the offering by 20% pursuant to Rule 462(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. We consummated the offering on June 24, 2011 and received proceeds net of transaction costs of $57,434,789 and $3,550,000 from the sale of warrants to our initial stockholders and the underwriters in the offering. On June 24, 2011, the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option and on June 27, 2011, we received net proceeds of $8,685,000. Our management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the offering and insider warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be generally applied toward consummating a business combination with one or more businesses or entities.

 

Results of Operations

 

Our entire activity since inception up to the closing of our initial public offering on June 24, 2011 was in preparation for that event. Since the offering, our activity has been limited to the evaluation of business combination candidates, and we will not be generating any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our initial business combination. We expect to generate small amounts of non-operating income in the form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents. Interest income is not expected to be significant in view of current low interest rates on risk-free investments (treasury securities).

 

We incurred a net loss of approximately $171,100 for the three month period from April 1, 2012 until June 30, 2012. This net loss was largely composed of interest income of approximately $6,900, which was offset by Delaware Franchise Taxes of approximately $50,600, New York State taxes of $35,000, legal expenses of approximately $31,600, accounting expenses of $8,400 and monthly administrative fees to Crescendo Advisors II, LLC (which is owned by our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Eric S. Rosenfeld) of $30,000. During the period from April 1, 2011 to June 30, 2011, we incurred a net loss of approximately $10,700, which was composed of business startup costs and $2,000 in monthly administrative fees to Crescendo Advisors II, LLC.

 

We incurred a net loss of approximately $352,600 for the six month period from January 1, 2012 until June 30, 2012. This net loss was largely composed of interest income of approximately $13,300, which was offset by Delaware Franchise Taxes of approximately $50,600, NASDAQ listing fees of approximately $54,200, legal expenses of approximately $79,400, New York State taxes of $35,000, accounting expenses of $28,400 and monthly administrative fees to Crescendo Advisors II, LLC (which is owned by our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Eric S. Rosenfeld) of $60,000. During the period from February 2, 2011 (inception) to June 30, 2011, we incurred a net loss of approximately $11,300, which was composed of business startup costs and $2,000 in monthly administrative fees to Crescendo Advisors II, LLC.

 

15
 

 

We incurred a net loss of approximately $700,500 for the period from February 2, 2011 (inception) until June 30, 2012. This net loss was largely composed of interest income of approximately $15,300, which was offset by marketing expenses of approximately $58,600, monthly administrative fees to Crescendo Advisors II, LLC of $122,000, Delaware Franchise Taxes of approximately $134,000, New York state taxes of 105,000, NASDAQ listing fees of $59,000, accounting expenses of $50,900 and legal expenses of approximately $95,800.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of June 30, 2012, we had $5,388 in our operating bank account. In addition, we had $61,685,151 in restricted cash and equivalents held in trust to be used for a Business Combination or to convert our common shares, in certain circumstances, through June 30, 2012. We have used $7,539,736 of trust funds to repurchase 783,145 common shares in accordance with our 10b5-1 plan. On March 14, 2012, the Company’s Board of Directors elected to terminate the 10b5-1 share repurchase plan in order to pursue a listing on a national securities exchange. As a result of the repurchases through March 14, 2012, the full pro rata redemption price has increased to approximately $10.08 per share. We intend to use the remainder of the proceeds not held in the trust account plus the interest earned on the funds held in the trust account that may be released to us to fund our working capital requirements. As of June 30, 2012, U.S Treasury Bills with one month, three month, and six month maturities were yielding approximately 0.04%, 0.09%, and 0.16%, respectively. While we may invest in other securities, we believe such rates are representative of those we may receive on the balance of the trust account.

 

Until consummation of our initial business combination, we will be using the funds not held in the trust account for identifying and evaluating prospective acquisition candidates, performing business due diligence on prospective target businesses, traveling to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses, reviewing corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, selecting the target business to acquire and structuring, negotiating and consummating the business combination. We anticipate that in order to fund our working capital requirements, we will need to use all of the remaining funds not held in trust and the interest earned on the funds held in the trust account. On April 25, 2012 the Company issued a $100,000 principal amount unsecured promissory note to Eric S. Rosenfeld (the “Holder”), the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and one of the Company’s Initial Stockholders. The loan is non interest bearing, and is payable in cash or Warrants at the consummation of a Business Combination. The principal balance of the note may be converted, at the holders option, to Warrants at a price of $0.50 per Warrant. The terms of these warrants will be identical to the Insider Warrants. In addition, we may need to enter into contingent fee arrangements with our vendors or raise additional capital through loans or additional investments from our initial shareholders, officers, directors, or third parties. None of the initial shareholders, officers or directors is under any obligation to advance funds to, or invest in, us. Accordingly, we may not be able to obtain additional financing. If we are unable to raise additional capital, we may be required to take additional measures to conserve liquidity, which could include, but not necessarily be limited to, curtailing operations, suspending the pursuit of our business plan, and controlling overhead expenses. We cannot provide any assurance that new financing will be available to us on commercially acceptable terms, if at all. The Company has no present revenue, and the Company’s cash and working capital as of June 30, 2012 are not sufficient to complete its planned activities for the current year. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

After the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option, the net proceeds from our initial public offering, after deducting offering expenses of approximately $465,000 and underwriting discounts of $2,415,000, were approximately $66,120,000. Of this amount, $65,660,000 and the $3,550,000 we received from the sale of the insider warrants, was placed in the trust account. The remaining net proceeds not in trust are being used for working capital purposes. We intend to use the net proceeds of the warrant offering and our initial public offering, representing our funds held in the trust account, to acquire a target business and to pay our expenses relating thereto, including $2,415,000 payable to EarlyBirdCapital, Inc. (“EBC”) upon consummation of an initial business combination for acting as our non-exclusive investment banker for structuring and negotiating our business combination. To the extent that our capital stock is used in whole or in part as consideration to effect a business combination, the remaining proceeds held in the trust account as well as any other net proceeds not expended will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business. Such working capital funds could be used in a variety of ways including continuing or expanding the target business’ operations, for strategic acquisitions and for marketing, research and development of existing or new products. Such funds could also be used to repay any operating expenses or finders’ fees, which we had incurred prior to the completion of our business combination if the funds available to us outside of the trust account were insufficient to cover such expenses.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as of June 30, 2012.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

The net proceeds of our initial public offering, including amounts in the Trust Account, have been held as cash and/or invested in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of 180 days or less. Due to the short-term nature of these investments, we believe there will be no associated material exposure to interest rate risk.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive and financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2012, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that during the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter of 2012 covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

All such shares were issued in connection with our organization pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(2) of the Securities Act as they were sold to accredited investors.

 

On June 21, 2011, we effected a stock dividend of 0.2 shares for each outstanding share of common stock, resulting in our initial stockholders owning an aggregate of 1,725,000 initial shares.

 

On June 24, 2011, we consummated our initial public offering of 6,000,000 units.   Each unit consisted of one share of common stock and one warrant, each to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $7.50 per share.  The units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds of $60,000,000. EarlyBirdCapital, Inc. acted as the lead managing underwriter of the initial public offering.  Morgan Joseph TriArtisan LLC served as a co-manager.  The securities sold in the offering were registered under the Securities Act of 1933 on a registration statement on Form S-1 (Nos. 333-172836 and 333-175040). The Securities and Exchange Commission declared the registration statement effective on June 20, 2011.

 

Simultaneously with the consummation of the initial public offering, we consummated the private placement of 7,100,000 warrants at a price of $0.50 per warrant, generating total proceeds of $3,550,000.  These issuances will be made pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(2) of the Securities Act. These insider warrants are identical to the warrants underlying the units except that the insider warrants will be exercisable for cash or on a cashless basis, at the holder’s option, and will not be redeemable by us, in each case so long as they are still held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees. The purchasers have agreed that the insider warrants will not be sold or transferred by them (except to certain permitted transferees) until after we have completed an initial business combination.

 

Also on June 24, 2011, EarlyBirdCapital, Inc. notified us that it exercised its over-allotment option to the full extent to purchase an additional 900,000 Units. On June 27, 2011, we consummated the closing of the over-allotment option.  The units sold pursuant to the over-allotment option were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds of $9,000,000. 

 

We paid a total of $2,415,000 in underwriting discounts and commissions and $391,000 for other costs and expenses related to the offering.

 

After deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and the offering expenses, the total net proceeds to us from the offering were $66,194,000. Of this amount, $65,660,000 and the $3,550,000 we received from the sale of the insider warrants was deposited into the trust account.
