Subsequent Events [Abstract]  

On January 15, 2021, the Company, Life Newco II, PHPM, and Dr. Stuart Rich, solely in his capacity as holders’ representative (in such capacity, the “Representative”), entered into the Merger Agreement, pursuant to which, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, the Company would acquire 100% of the equity of PHPM. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Life Newco II would merge with and into PHPM, with PHPM surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. On January 15, 2021, the Company completed the Acquisition.


As consideration for the Merger, the stockholders of PHPM received (i) 1,892,905 shares of the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”), and (ii) 10,232 shares of the Company’s Series B convertible preferred stock, which are convertible into up to an aggregate of 10,232,000 shares of Common Stock (“Preferred Stock”) (collectively, the “Merger Consideration”). The issuance of 1,212,492 shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock, representing approximately 10% of the Merger Consideration, will be delayed as security for closing adjustments and post-closing indemnification obligations of PHPM and the stockholders of PHPM. Each share of Preferred Stock will automatically convert into (i) 881.5 shares of Common Stock following receipt of the approval of the stockholders of the Company for the Conversion (as defined herein), and (ii) 118.5 shares of Common Stock 24 months after the date of issuance of the Preferred Stock, subject to reduction for indemnification claims. The number of shares of Common Stock into which the Preferred Stock converts is subject to adjustment in the case of stock splits, stock dividends, combinations of shares and similar recapitalization transactions. The Preferred Stock does not carry dividends or a liquidation preference. The Preferred Stock carries voting rights aggregating 4.99% of the Company’s Common Stock voting power immediately prior to the closing of the Merger. The rights, preferences and privileges of the Preferred Stock are set forth in the Certificate of Designation of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock that the Company filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on January 15, 2021 (the “Certificate of Designation”).


Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the Company must, no later than July 31, 2021, take all action necessary to call, convene and hold a meeting of the Company’s stockholders to vote upon the conversion of the Preferred Stock pursuant to the Certificate of Designation (the “Conversion”). If stockholder approval is not obtained at such meeting, the Company must call a meeting every 90 days thereafter to seek stockholder approval for the Conversion until the earlier of the date stockholder approval for the Conversion is obtained or the Preferred Stock is no longer outstanding.


The terms of the Merger Agreement also require the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) to, subject to the Board’s fiduciary duties under applicable law, (i) recommend to the Company’s stockholders that they approve the Conversion at any meeting of the Company’s stockholders called for the approval of the Conversion, and (ii) use reasonable best efforts to solicit from the Company’s stockholders, the affirmative vote of the holders of shares representing a majority of the shares of the Company’s capital stock voting in person or by proxy at any such meeting. A vote on the Conversion is expected to take place at the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders. In addition, (i) at the Company’s first regularly scheduled Board meeting following the closing of the Merger, the Board must appoint one director designated by the Representative to serve on the Board, and (ii) as promptly as practicable after the Company has obtained stockholder approval for the Conversion, the Board must appoint two additional directors designated by the Representative to serve on the Board. Dr. Stuart Rich, the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, and a stockholder of PHPM, and Dr. Michael Davidson and Dr. Declan Doogan, the two other designees of the Representative, were appointed to the Board on February 25, 2021. In connection with the closing of the Merger, Dr. Stuart Rich was also appointed Chief Medical Officer of the Company.
