At the closing of the Engine Acquisition, the Company (i) issued to the equityholders of Even Financial Inc. an aggregate of 28,164,811 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, along with an additional 529,120 shares of Series A Preferred Stock to advisors of Even Financial Inc. for transaction expenses, valued at $193,721, (ii) paid to certain Even Financial Inc. management equityholders approximately $14,514 in cash and (iii) exchanged 8,883,228 options to acquire Even Financial Inc. common stock for 196,728 options to acquire Class A Common Stock, of which the vested portion at the acquisition date was valued at $8,960. In addition, certain recipients of options to acquire shares of the Company’s Class A common stock were entitled to receive dividend equivalents in lieu of receiving Series A Preferred Stock, subject to certain conditions (the “Preferred Stock Equivalents”). The total purchase price was approximately $271,096, subject to customary purchase price adjustments for working capital and inclusive of amounts used to repay approximately $5,703 of existing indebtedness of Even Financial Inc. and pay $2,868 of seller transaction costs.
Pursuant to the Amended and Restated Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of February 17, 2022, governing the Engine Acquisition, the equityholders and advisors of Even Financial Inc. were entitled to receive an additional payment from the Company of up to an aggregate of 8,000,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, based on the attributed revenue of Engine’s business during the 13-month period commencing January 1, 2022 (the “Earnout”). On May 22, 2023, in connection with Engine's partial achievement of the Earnout, the Company issued 4,354,092 shares of Series A Preferred Stock and, in lieu of fractional shares and with respect to recipients otherwise ineligible to receive shares, approximately $459 in cash to the former equityholders and advisors of Even Financial Inc., as described further below.
The fair value of Even Financial Inc.’s acquired assets and liabilities assumed were as follows:
The goodwill related to the Engine Acquisition was not tax deductible and was comprised of expected synergies from combining operations and the value of intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition.
The following table presents the changes in the liability related to the Earnout and Preferred Stock Equivalents:
The Earnout and Preferred Stock Equivalents were valued using a Monte Carlo simulation model as of December 31, 2022, which is calculated using Level 3 inputs. The primary unobservable inputs utilized in determining the fair value of the Earnout and Preferred Stock Equivalents are the expected volatility of the Class A Common Stock and the revenue levels of Engine.
In May 2023, the Earnout was settled through the issuance of 4,354,092 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, with cash paid in lieu of any fractional shares of Series A Preferred Stock. Cash payments relating to the settlement of the Earnout were $459.
In June 2023, the Preferred Stock Equivalents were settled through the issuance of 23,453 shares of Class A Common Stock, with cash paid in lieu of any fractional shares of Class A Common Stock. Cash payments relating to the settlement of the Preferred Stock Equivalents were $307. Upon the Automatic Conversion Event, the MoneyLion Inc. Preferred Share Dividend Replacement Program governing the Preferred Stock Equivalents immediately and automatically terminated in accordance with its terms, following which all Preferred Stock Equivalents were forfeited.
The Company’s pro forma revenue and net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 below has been prepared as if Even Financial Inc. had been purchased on January 1, 2022. The Company made certain pro forma adjustments related to amortization of intangible assets, intercompany activity and interest expense.
