NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(USD in thousands, except per share data)

 

NOTE 1 — DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

Overview

 

MICT Inc., (“we”, or the “Company”) was formed as a Delaware corporation on January 31, 2002. On March 14, 2013, the Company changed its corporate name from Lapis Technologies, Inc. to Mict Inc Technologies, Inc. On July 13, 2018, following the sale of its former subsidiary Enertec Systems Ltd., the Company changed the Company name from Mict Inc Technologies, Inc. to MICT, Inc. Our shares of common stock have been listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market, or Nasdaq, since April 29, 2013.

 

Prior to the Merger, we operated primarily through our Israel-based subsidiary, Micronet. Micronet operates in the growing commercial MRM market. Micronet, through both its Israeli and U.S. operational offices, designs, develops, manufactures and sells rugged mobile computing devices that provide fleet operators and field workforces with computing solutions in challenging work environments. Micronet’s vehicle portable tablets are designed to increase workforce productivity and enhance corporate efficiency by offering computing power and communication capabilities that provide fleet operators with visibility into vehicle location, fuel usage, speed and mileage. Furthermore, users are able to manage the drivers in various aspects, such as: driver behavior, driver identification, reporting hours worked, customer/organization working procedures and protocols, route management and navigation based on tasks and time schedule. End users may also receive real time messages for various services, such as pickup and delivery, repair and maintenance, status reports, alerts, notices relating to the start and ending of work, digital forms, issuing and printing of invoices and payments. Through its SmartHub product, Micronet provides its consumers with services such as driver recognition, identifying and preventing driver fatigue, recognizing driver behavior, preventive maintenance, fuel efficiency and an advanced driver assistance system. In addition, Micronet provides third party telematics service providers, or TSPs, a platform to offer services such as “Hours of Service.” Micronet previously commenced and continues to evaluate integration with other TSPs.

 

Micronet is currently entering the video analytics device market by developing an all in-one video telematics device known as Micronet SmartCam. Micronet SmartCam is based on the powerful and flexible Android platform, and is expected to be a ruggedized, integrated, and ready-to-go smart camera supporting complete telematics features designed for in-vehicle use. Coupled with vehicle-connected interfaces, state of the art diagnostic capabilities, and two smart cameras, it offers video analytics and telematics services capabilities, addressing safety, vehicle health, and tracking needs of commercial fleets. MICT believes that Micronet SmartCam provides a versatile, advanced, and affordable mobile computing platform for a variety of fleet management and video analytics solutions. The powerful computing platform, coupled with the Android operating systems, allows its customers to run their applications or pick and choose a set of applications and services from the Micronet marketplace. Micronet’s customers consist primarily of application service providers, or ASPs, solution providers specializing in the MRM market and potentially Original Equipment Manufacturer (“OEM”) truck and vehicle manufacturers including as part of the aftermarket sales. These companies sell Micronet’s products as part of their MRM systems and solutions. Currently, Micronet does not sell directly to end users. Micronet customers are generally MRM solution and service providers, ASP providers in the transportation market, including long haul, local fleets’ student transportation (yellow busses) and fleet and field management systems for construction and heavy equipment. Micronet products are used by customers operating vehicle fleets around the world such as in Israel, Canada, USA, Europe and other countries.

 

As of December 31, 2018, the Company held 49.89% of Micronet’s issued and outstanding shares, and together with an irrevocable proxy in our benefit from Mr. David Lucatz, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, we held 50.07% of the voting interest in Micronet as of such date. On February 24, 2019, Micronet closed a public equity offering on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (the “TASE”). As a result of Micronet’s offering, our ownership interest in Micronet was diluted from 49.89% to 33.88%. On September 5, 2019, Micronet closed a subsequent public equity offering on the TASE. As a result, our ownership interest in Micronet was further diluted from 33.88% to 30.48%, which was later increased as described herein. The initial decrease in the Company’s voting interest in Micronet resulted in the deconsolidation of Micronet’s operating results from our financial statements as of February 24, 2019. Therefore, commencing on February 24, 2019, the Company accounted for its ownership in Micronet in accordance with the equity method. As a result of the deconsolidation, the Company recognized a net gain of $299,000 in February 2019.  

 

On June 10, 2020, the Company announced that MICT Telematics Ltd. will own, assuming that all of the ordinary shares offered in the tender offer were purchased, 45.53% of Micronet’s issued and outstanding ordinary shares. Also on June 10, 2020, the Company further informed Micronet that, assuming that the full subscription of such tender offer is accepted, the Company intends to, but shall not be required to, participate in a public offering of Micronet’s ordinary shares, pursuant to which the Company may purchase up to $900,000 of such shares.

 

Subsequently, on June 23, 2020, the Company announced that, as a result of (i) the completion of the tender offer, in which 5,999,996 of Micronet’s ordinary shares were purchased for aggregate proceeds of NIS 1,800,000 (or $515,000), and (ii) the closing of the public offering, in which the Company purchased 10,334,000 of Micronet’s ordinary shares for total consideration of NIS 3,100,200 (or $887,000), As of September 30, 2020 the Company owns 53.39% of Micronet’s outstanding ordinary shares. the company expects to continue to maintain a controlling interest in Micronet in the future.

NOTE 1 — DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS (Cont.)

 

The consequences of COVID-19, when combined with other events or conditions over which we have little or no control, may create a material uncertainty as to Micronet’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company will continue to monitor the situation closely, but given the uncertainty, management cannot estimate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s financial statements or operations.  

 

In June 2019, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with BNN, pursuant to which BNN agreed to purchase from the Company $2,000,000 of convertible notes (the “BNN Notes”), which were issued on July 31, 2019. The BNN Notes, which were initially convertible into up to 2,727,272 shares of common stock, were sold together with certain common stock purchase warrants to purchase up to 2,727,272 shares of common stock. On January 21, 2020, the Company entered into the Conversion Agreement with BNN, pursuant to which BNN agreed to convert all outstanding BNN Notes in the amount of $2,000,000 into 1,818,181 shares of the Company’s newly-designated Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, with a stated value of $1.10 per share (the “Series B Preferred Stock”).

 

On June 4, 2019, the Company commenced an offering of its Series A Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), by entering into a securities purchase agreement, pursuant to which the Company sold, in multiple closings, 3,181,818 shares of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Offering”).

The proceeds of $15,900,000 from the sale of the Primary Convertible Debentures were funded on January 21, 2020. Concurrently with entry into the Primary Purchase Agreement, the Company entered into a separate Securities Purchase Agreement and, together with the Primary Purchase Agreement, the Purchase Agreements, with certain investors , and, together with the Primary Purchasers, the , pursuant to which, among other things, the Non-Primary Purchasers agreed, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Non-Primary Purchase Agreement, to purchase from us 5% senior secured convertible debentures due during , and, together with the Primary Convertible Debentures, the , with an aggregate principal amount of $9,000,000, together with the Primary Convertible Debenture Offering, the . The Convertible Debentures were convertible into our shares of our common stock at a conversion price of $1.41 per share. The Primary Purchasers exercised their right to an optional redemption pursuant to Section 6(b) of each Primary Convertible Debenture and declared the occurrence and continuance of an event of default, each of which accelerated the Company’s obligation to repay all outstanding balances under the Primary Convertible Debentures . On March 16, 2020, the Outstanding Principle was transferred from the Company to the Purchasers. As a result, the Primary Purchase Agreement was terminated.

 

On April 21, 2020, MICT, Inc. entered into a series of note purchase agreements with certain investors identified therein pursuant to which, among other things, the Purchasers purchased on July 1, 2020 certain convertible notes with an aggregate principal amount of approximately $11.0 million. On July 8, 2020, the Company entered into an additional series of purchase agreements with certain other purchaser pursuant to which such purchasers purchased from the Company at such date convertible notes with an aggregate principal amount of approximately $4.0 million. Accordingly, at total, pursuant to the above, the Company has sold convertible notes with an aggregate principal amount of approximately $15.0 million.

 

The Convertible Notes included terms allowing for a conversion into shares of common stock of the Company at a conversion price of $1.10 per share. The Convertible Notes are generally due two years from the date of issuance, except that certain convertible notes will be due five years from the date of issuance. The Company is obligated to pay interest to the Purchasers on the outstanding principal amount at the rate of 1.0% per annum, payable on each conversion date, in cash or, at the Company’s option, in shares of common stock. Subject to approval of the Company’s stockholders, the Convertible Notes shall be convertible into shares of common stock. Upon the occurrence of certain events, the Purchasers are permitted to require the Company to redeem the Convertible Notes, including any interest that has accrued thereunder, for cash. As of the date hereof and based on the terms included in the convertible notes, following receipt of the Company’s stockholders, the Convertible Notes were converted into shares of common stock of the Company at a conversion price of $1.10 per share as set above.

 

In July 2020, we completed the acquisition of Intermediate pursuant to the Merger Agreement. Intermediate is a financial technology company with a marketplace in China and in other areas of the world. Intermediate is in the process of building various platforms for business opportunities in various verticals and technology segments it can capitalize on, and it plans to continue to add the capabilities of such platforms through acquisition or license of technologies to support these efforts in the different market segments as more fully described below. By building secure, reliable and scalable platforms with high volume processing capability, Intermediate believes it is able to provide customized solutions that address the needs of a very diverse client base, each outstanding share of Intermediate was cancelled in exchange for a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $25,000,000, which Convertible Note were converted into 22,727,273 shares of common stock of MICT at a conversion price of $1.10 per share,.

NOTE 2 — SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying condensed, unaudited, consolidated financial statements and condensed footnotes have been prepared in accordance with the applicable rules and regulations of the SEC, regarding interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or U.S. GAAP, for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring items) considered necessary for fair statement of results for the interim periods presented have been included. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year 2020 or for other interim periods or for future years. The consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2020 is derived from unaudited financial statements as of that date; and it does not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. 

 

Furthermore, from February 24, 2019 until June 23, 2020, the Company accounted for its ownership in Micronet in accordance with the equity method; and therefore, the results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year 2020 or for other interim periods or for future years.

 

The Company’s operations and business have experienced disruptions due to, among other things, the unprecedented conditions surrounding the spread of the COVID-19 virus throughout North America, Israel and the world. While the Company expects the COVID-19 pandemic to have an impact on its business operations and financial results, the extent of the impact on the Company’s business, its corporate development objectives, its financial position and the value of and market for its common stock will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence at this time, such as the ultimate duration of the pandemic, travel restrictions, quarantines, social distancing and business closure requirements in the United States, Israel, or elsewhere, as well as the effectiveness of actions taken globally to contain and treat the disease. Notably, COVID-19 and measures implemented to reduce the spread of the virus have limited access to the Company’s offices and have disrupted its normal interactions with certain of its accounting personnel, legal advisors, auditors and others.  Additionally, the COVID-19 outbreak has adversely affected the global economy and financial markets, which may result in a long-term economic downturn that could negatively affect future performance. The extent to which COVID-19 will impact our business and our consolidated financial results in the future will depend on future developments related to the spread of COVID-19 which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted at the time of the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The consequences of COVID-19, when combined with other events or conditions over which we have little or no control, may create a material uncertainty as to Micronet’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company will continue to monitor the situation closely, but given the uncertainty, management cannot estimate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s financial statements or operations.  

 

As of the date of this Quarterly Report, COVID-19 and the resulting government actions enacted in China and elsewhere have not had a material adverse effect on GFH I financial reports; however, there can be no assurance that GFH I financial reports will not be affected in the future from COVID-19 or resulting government actions.

As of December 31, 2018, we held 49.89% of Micronet’s issued and outstanding shares, and together with an irrevocable proxy in our benefit from Mr. David Lucatz, our President and Chief Executive Officer, we held 50.07% of the voting interest in Micronet as of such date. On February 24, 2019, Micronet closed a public equity offering on the TASE. As a result of Micronet’s offering, our ownership interest in Micronet was diluted from 49.89% to 33.88%. On September 5, 2019, Micronet closed a public equity offering on the TASE. As a result, our ownership interest in Micronet was diluted from 33.88% to 30.48%. The initial decrease in the Company’s voting interest in Micronet resulted in the loss of control of Micronet. As a result, commencing on February 24, 2019, the Company no longer accounted for its ownership in Micronet in its financial statements. Commencing on February 24, 2019, the Company began to account for its ownership in Micronet in accordance with the equity method.

 

The method used for determining fair value of the investment in Micronet was based on a quoted market price on the TASE.

  

NOTE 6 — GAIN OF CONTROL OF SUBSIDIARY- Micronet Acquisition

 

On June 23, 2020, Micronet completed the special tender offer (the “Tender Offer”), in which MICT successfully purchased 5,999,996 shares of Micronet’s ordinary shares (the “Ordinary Shares”), in the aggregate amount of NIS 1,800,000 (or $515,000) offered in the Tender Offer, which brought MICT’s ownership interest up to 45.53%.

 

Also on June 23, 2020, MICT purchased an additional 10,334,000 shares of Micronet’s Ordinary Shares in the aggregate amount of NIS 3,100,000 (or $887,000), which brought MICT’s ownership interest up to 53.39% as of September 30, 2020. Accordingly, MICT obtained voting control over Micronet and, as a result, MICT applied purchase accounting (see the table below) and began to consolidate Micronet beginning on such date. MICT recognized a $665,000 gain on previously held equity in Micronet.

 

There are material uncertainties related to events or conditions such as: (i) the effects of COVID-19 on Micronet’s overall business (ii) recent accumulated losses, (iii) historical working capital deficiencies, (iv) the significant decrease in demand for the company’s products, which results in a delay in the receipt of new orders and, consequently, a lack of sufficient backlog, and (v) a significant slowdown in the business activities of the global economy. The above reasons, among others, create a material uncertainty and cast substantial doubt upon Micronet’s ability to continue as a going concern.

The First Loan did not bear any interest and was due and payable upon the earlier of (i) December 31, 2019; or (ii) at such time Micronet receives an investment of at least $250,000 from non-related parties.

 

In view of Micronet’s working capital needs, on November 18, 2019, the Company entered into an additional loan agreement with Micronet for the loan of $125,000 (the “Second Loan”), pursuant to terms and conditions identical to those governing the First Loan, including the repayment terms.

On November 13, 2019, the Company and Micronet executed a convertible loan agreement pursuant to which the Company agreed to loan to Micronet $500,000 in the aggregate (the “Convertible Loan”). The Convertible Loan bears interest at a rate of 3.95% calculated and is paid on a quarterly basis. In addition, the Convertible Loan, if not converted, shall be repaid in four equal installments, the first of such installment payable following the fifth quarter after the issuance of the Convertible Loan, with the remaining three installments due on each subsequent quarter thereafter, such that the Convertible Loan shall be repaid in full upon the lapse of 24 months from its grant. In addition, the outstanding principal balance of the Convertible Loan, and all accrued and unpaid interest, is convertible at the Company’s option, at a conversion price equal to 0.38 NIS per Micronet share. Pursuant to the Convertible Loan agreement, Micronet also agreed to issue the Company an option to purchase up to one of Micronet’s ordinary shares for each ordinary share that it issued as a result of a conversion of the Convertible Loan (“Convertible Loan Warrant”), at an exercise price of 0.60 NIS per share, exercisable for a period of 15 months. On July 5, 2020, the company had a reverse split where the price of the Convertible Loan changed from 0.08 NIS per Micronet share into 5.7 NIS per Micronet share. The option’s exercised price was changed from 0.6 NIS per share to 9 NIS per Micronet share.

 

On January 1, 2020, the Convertible Loan transaction was approved at a general meeting of the Micronet shareholders and as a result, the Convertible Loan and the transactions contemplated thereby entered into effect. At such time, the First Loan and Second Loan were repaid to us and the Convertible Loan was provided.

 

On August 13, 2020, MICT Telematics extended to Micronet an additional loan in the aggregate amount of $175,000 (the “Third Loan” and the “Loan Sum”, respectively) which governing the existing outstanding intercompany debt. The Third Loan does not bear any interest and is provided for a period of twelve (12) months. The Loan Sum was granted for the purpose of supporting Micronet’s working capital and general corporate needs.

NOTE 10 — SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

  

In October 2020, MICT appointed Mr. Richard Abrahams as the Chief Executive Officer of Intermediate’s stock trading and wealth management business.

 

MICT, Inc previously announced on October 2, 2020 that its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary BI Intermediate (Hong Kong) Limited (“BI Intermediate”) has entered a strategic agreement (“Strategic Agreement”) to acquire, for a total purchase price of U.S.$3.0 million, 9% of a Huapei Global Securities Limited (“Huapei”), Hong Kong based securities and investments firm. The Strategic Agreement provided that the remaining 91% of Huapei would be purchased by BI Intermediate upon approval from the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC), the principal regulator of Hong Kong's securities and futures markets. On November 11, 2020, BI Intermediate closed on its acquisition of the first 9% of its acquisition and paid 9% of the purchase price. Additionally, on November 11, 2020, upon the initial closing, BI Intermediate made a loan to Huapei in an amount equivalent to the remaining 91% of the purchase price. Upon the closing of the remaining 91%, which remains subject to SFC approval, the loan will be cancelled, and BI Intermediate will acquire the remaining 91% of Huapei. If the Strategic Agreement is terminated or the closing of the remaining 91% does not occur within 24 months, Huapei will repay the loan to BI Intermediate. The loan is secured against the 91% of the share capital of Huapei not owned by BI Intermediate. The obligations of Huapei Global Capital Limited, the seller of the interests of Huapei, under the loan agreement have been guaranteed by the ultimate controller of Huapei Global Capital Limited. Huapei is licensed to trade securities on leading exchanges in Hong Kong, the U.S. and China including the valuable China A-Shares, all of which are the primary target markets for Company's global fintech business. The Company is in the process of integrating its mobile app supporting platform with Huapei’s licensed trading assets.

 

On October 11, 2020, Micronet closed a public equity offering on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (the “TASE”) , in which the Company purchased 520,600 of Micronet’s ordinary shares and 416,480 of Micronet’s stock options convertible into 416,480 Micronet ordinary shares (at a conversion price of NIS 3.5 per share), for total consideration of NIS 4,961,202 (or $1,417,486). Following the Micronet’s offering, the purchase of share and the exercise of our stock options, our ownership interest in Micronet was diluted from 53.39% to 50.32% of the Micronet outstanding share capital.

 

On November 2, 2020, MICT, Inc entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with certain investors for the purpose of raising $25.0 million in gross proceeds for the Company (the “Offering”). Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to sell, in a registered direct offering, an aggregate of 10,000,000 units, with each Unit consisting of one share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, and one warrant to purchase 0.8 of one share of Common Stock, at a purchase price of $2.50 per Unit. The Warrants are exercisable six months after the date of issuance at an exercise price of $3.12 per share and will expire five years following the date the Warrants become exercisable.  The closing of the sale of Units pursuant to the Securities Purchase  Agreement occurred on November 4, 2020. As of the date hereof, $22.325 million in gross proceeds out of the Offering were provided to the Company and the remaining additional $2.675 million of proceeds were wired to the Company’s wholly owned indirect subsidiary, Bokefa Petroleum and Gas Co Ltd. (“Bokefa”), in the Peoples Republic of China. The Offering Proceeds that were wired to Bokefa, are currently subject to China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange’s (“SAFE”) Circular on Relevant Issues Concerning Foreign Exchange Control on Domestic Residents’ Offshore Investment and Financing and Roundtrip Investment Through Special Purpose Vehicles, or SAFE Circular 37.  Following the clearance of SAFE Circular 37, such proceeds will be deposited in the Bokefa account.    The gross proceeds were subject to certain issuance costs and related expenses, including U.S. Placement Agent’s fees of 7.0% of the public offering price on $15.0 million, U.S. Placement Agents fees of 3.5% on $10 million, non-U.S. broker fees of 6.5% on $10 million and a non-accountable expense allowance of 1% of the public offering price to the U.S. Placement Agent as well as additional expenses pay to professionals in connection with the Offering.

 

A.G.P./Alliance Global Partners acted as the exclusive placement agent (the “Placement Agent”) for the Company, on a “reasonable best efforts” basis, in connection with the Offering. Pursuant to that certain Placement Agency Agreement, dated as of November 2, 2020, by and between the Company and the Placement Agent (the “Placement Agency Agreement”), the Placement Agent will be entitled to a cash fee equal to 7.0% of the gross proceeds from the placement of the total amount of Units sold by the Placement Agent and 3.5% of the gross proceeds from the placement of the total amount of Units sold in the offering, plus a non-accountable expense allowance in an amount equal to 1% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering.

Overview

 

MICT Inc., (“we”, or the “Company”) was formed as a Delaware corporation on January 31, 2002. On March 14, 2013, the Company changed its corporate name from Lapis Technologies, Inc. to Mict Inc Technologies, Inc. On July 13, 2018, following the sale of its former subsidiary Enertec Systems Ltd., the Company changed the Company name from Mict Inc Technologies, Inc. to MICT, Inc. Our shares of common stock have been listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market, or Nasdaq, since April 29, 2013.

 

Prior to the Merger, we operated primarily through our Israel-based subsidiary, Micronet. Micronet operates in the growing commercial MRM market. Micronet, through both its Israeli and U.S. operational offices, designs, develops, manufactures and sells rugged mobile computing devices that provide fleet operators and field workforces with computing solutions in challenging work environments. Micronet’s vehicle portable tablets are designed to increase workforce productivity and enhance corporate efficiency by offering computing power and communication capabilities that provide fleet operators with visibility into vehicle location, fuel usage, speed and mileage. Furthermore, users are able to manage the drivers in various aspects, such as: driver behavior, driver identification, reporting hours worked, customer/organization working procedures and protocols, route management and navigation based on tasks and time schedule. End users may also receive real time messages for various services, such as pickup and delivery, repair and maintenance, status reports, alerts, notices relating to the start and ending of work, digital forms, issuing and printing of invoices and payments. Through its SmartHub product, Micronet provides its consumers with services such as driver recognition, identifying and preventing driver fatigue, recognizing driver behavior, preventive maintenance, fuel efficiency and an advanced driver assistance system. In addition, Micronet provides third party telematics service providers, or TSPs, a platform to offer services such as “Hours of Service.” Micronet previously commenced and continues to evaluate integration with other TSPs.

 

19

 

 

Micronet is currently entering the video analytics device market by developing an all in-one video telematics device known as Micronet SmartCam. Micronet SmartCam is based on the powerful and flexible Android platform, and is expected to be a ruggedized, integrated, and ready-to-go smart camera supporting complete telematics features designed for in-vehicle use. Coupled with vehicle-connected interfaces, state of the art diagnostic capabilities, and two smart cameras, it offers video analytics and telematics services capabilities, addressing safety, vehicle health, and tracking needs of commercial fleets. MICT believes that Micronet SmartCam provides a versatile, advanced, and affordable mobile computing platform for a variety of fleet management and video analytics solutions. The powerful computing platform, coupled with the Android operating systems, allows its customers to run their applications or pick and choose a set of applications and services from the Micronet marketplace. Micronet’s customers consist primarily of application service providers, or ASPs, solution providers specializing in the MRM market and potentially Original Equipment Manufacturer (“OEM”) truck and vehicle manufacturers including as part of the aftermarket sales. These companies sell Micronet’s products as part of their MRM systems and solutions. Currently, Micronet does not sell directly to end users. Micronet customers are generally MRM solution and service providers, ASP providers in the transportation market, including long haul, local fleets’ student transportation (yellow busses) and fleet and field management systems for construction and heavy equipment. Micronet products are used by customers operating vehicle fleets around the world such as in Israel, Canada, USA, Europe and other countries.

 

As of December 31, 2018, the Company held 49.89% of Micronet’s issued and outstanding shares, and together with an irrevocable proxy in our benefit from Mr. David Lucatz, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, we held 50.07% of the voting interest in Micronet as of such date. On February 24, 2019, Micronet closed a public equity offering on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (the “TASE”). As a result of Micronet’s offering, our ownership interest in Micronet was diluted from 49.89% to 33.88%. On September 5, 2019, Micronet closed a subsequent public equity offering on the TASE. As a result, our ownership interest in Micronet was further diluted from 33.88% to 30.48%, which was later increased as described herein. The initial decrease in the Company’s voting interest in Micronet resulted in the deconsolidation of Micronet’s operating results from our financial statements as of February 24, 2019. Therefore, commencing on February 24, 2019, the Company accounted for its ownership in Micronet in accordance with the equity method. As a result of the deconsolidation, the Company recognized a net gain of $299,000 in February 2019.  

 

On June 10, 2020, the Company announced that MICT Telematics Ltd. will own, assuming that all of the ordinary shares offered in the tender offer were purchased, 45.53% of Micronet’s issued and outstanding ordinary shares. Also on June 10, 2020, the Company further informed Micronet that, assuming that the full subscription of such tender offer is accepted, the Company intends to, but shall not be required to, participate in a public offering of Micronet’s ordinary shares, pursuant to which the Company may purchase up to $900,000 of such shares.

 

Subsequently, on June 23, 2020, the Company announced that, as a result of (i) the completion of the tender offer, in which 5,999,996 of Micronet’s ordinary shares were purchased for aggregate proceeds of NIS 1,800,000 (or $515,000), and (ii) the closing of the public offering, in which the Company purchased 10,334,000 of Micronet’s ordinary shares for total consideration of NIS 3,100,200 (or $887,000), As of September 30, 2020 the Company owns 53.39% of Micronet’s outstanding ordinary shares. the company expects to continue to maintain a controlling interest in Micronet in the future.

 

The consequences of COVID-19, when combined with other events or conditions over which we have little or no control, may create a material uncertainty as to Micronet’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company will continue to monitor the situation closely, but given the uncertainty, management cannot estimate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s financial statements or operations.  

 

In June 2019, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with BNN, pursuant to which BNN agreed to purchase from the Company $2,000,000 of convertible notes (the “BNN Notes”), which were issued on July 31, 2019. The BNN Notes, which were initially convertible into up to 2,727,272 shares of common stock, were sold together with certain common stock purchase warrants to purchase up to 2,727,272 shares of common stock. On January 21, 2020, the Company entered into the Conversion Agreement with BNN, pursuant to which BNN agreed to convert all outstanding BNN Notes in the amount of $2,000,000 into 1,818,181 shares of the Company’s newly-designated Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, with a stated value of $1.10 per share (the “Series B Preferred Stock”).

 

On June 4, 2019, the Company commenced an offering of its Series A Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), by entering into a securities purchase agreement, pursuant to which the Company sold, in multiple closings, 3,181,818 shares of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Offering”). The Series A Preferred Stock, convertible into up to 6,363,636 shares of common stock of the Company, was issued together with certain preferred warrants (the “Series A Preferred Warrants”) to purchase up to 4,772,727 shares of common stock, for aggregate gross proceeds of $7,000,000 to the Company.

On November 7, 2019, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase, with certain investors, pursuant to which, among other things, the Primary Purchasers agreed, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Primary Purchase Agreement, to purchase from us 5% senior secured convertible debentures due during 2020 with an aggregate principal amount of approximately $15,900,. The proceeds of $15,900,000 from the sale of the Primary Convertible Debentures were funded on January 21, 2020. Concurrently with entry into the Primary Purchase Agreement, the Company entered into a separate Securities Purchase Agreement and, together with the Primary Purchase Agreement, the Purchase Agreements, with certain investors , and, together with the Primary Purchasers, the , pursuant to which, among other things, the Non-Primary Purchasers agreed, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Non-Primary Purchase Agreement, to purchase from us 5% senior secured convertible debentures due during , and, together with the Primary Convertible Debentures, the , with an aggregate principal amount of $9,000,000, together with the Primary Convertible Debenture Offering, the . The Convertible Debentures were convertible into our shares of our common stock at a conversion price of $1.41 per share. The Primary Purchasers exercised their right to an optional redemption pursuant to Section 6(b) of each Primary Convertible Debenture and declared the occurrence and continuance of an event of default, each of which accelerated the Company’s obligation to repay all outstanding balances under the Primary Convertible Debentures . On March 16, 2020, the Outstanding Principle was transferred from the Company to the Purchasers. As a result, the Primary Purchase Agreement was terminated.

 

On April 21, 2020, MICT, Inc. entered into a series of note purchase agreements with certain investors identified therein pursuant to which, among other things, the Purchasers purchased on July 1, 2020 certain convertible notes with an aggregate principal amount of approximately $11.0 million.

Accordingly, at total, pursuant to the above, the Company has sold convertible notes with an aggregate principal amount of approximately $15.0 million.

 

the Convertible Notes included terms allowing for a conversion into shares of common stock of the Company at a conversion price of $1.10 per share. The Convertible Notes are generally due two years from the date of issuance, except that certain convertible notes will be due five years from the date of issuance. The Company is obligated to pay interest to the Purchasers on the outstanding principal amount at the rate of 1.0% per annum, payable on each conversion date, in cash or, at the Company’s option, in shares of common stock. Subject to approval of the Company’s stockholders, the Convertible Notes shall be convertible into shares of common stock. Upon the occurrence of certain events, the Purchasers are permitted to require the Company to redeem the Convertible Notes, including any interest that has accrued thereunder, for cash.

GAIN OF CONTROL OF SUBSIDIARY- Micronet Acquisition

 

On June 23, 2020, Micronet completed the special tender offer (the “Tender Offer”), in which MICT successfully purchased 5,999,996 shares of Micronet’s ordinary shares (the “Ordinary Shares”), in the aggregate amount of NIS 1,800,000 (or $515,000) offered in the Tender Offer, which brought MICT’s ownership interest up to 45.53%.

 

Also, on June 23, 2020, MICT purchased an additional 10,334,000 shares of Micronet’s Ordinary Shares in the aggregate amount of NIS 3,100,200 (or $887,000), which brought MICT’s ownership interest up to 53.39%. Accordingly, MICT obtained voting control over Micronet and, as a result, MICT applied purchase accounting (see the table below) and began to consolidate Micronet beginning on such date. MICT recognized a $665,000 gain from consolidation. 

 

There are material uncertainties related to events or conditions such as: (i) the effects of COVID-19 on Micronet’s overall business (ii) recent accumulated losses, (iii) historical working capital deficiencies, (iv) the significant decrease in demand for the company’s products, which results in a delay in the receipt of new orders and, consequently, a lack of sufficient backlog, and (v) a significant slowdown in the business activities of the global economy. The above reasons, among others, create a material uncertainty and cast significant doubt upon Micronet’s ability to continue as a going concern.

  

Management engaged a third-party valuation firm to assist them with the valuation of the intangible assets that are detailed in the schedule below.  

 

Purchased identifiable intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their respective useful lives. The table set forth below summarizes the estimates of the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed and resulting gain on bargain purchase.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

In addition to providing financial measurements based on generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S., or GAAP, we provide additional financial metrics that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, or non-GAAP financial measures. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to understand and compare operating results across accounting periods, for financial and operational decision making, for planning and forecasting purposes and to evaluate our financial performance.

 

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect our ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful comparisons and analysis of trends in our business, as they exclude expenses and gains that are not reflective of our ongoing operating results. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating our operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies.

 

The non-GAAP financial measures do not replace the presentation of our GAAP financial results and should only be used as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.

 

The non-GAAP adjustments, and the basis for excluding them from non-GAAP financial measures, are outlined below:

 

Amortization of acquired intangible assets - We are required to amortize the intangible assets, included in our GAAP financial statements, related to the Transaction and the Acquisition. The amount of an acquisition’s purchase price allocated to intangible assets and term of its related amortization are unique to these transactions. The amortization of acquired intangible assets are non-cash charges. We believe that such charges do not reflect our operational performance. Therefore, we exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets to provide investors with a consistent basis for comparing pre- and post-transaction operating results.

 

Expenses related to beneficial conversion feature expense - Those expenses are non-cash expenses and are related to the difference between the stock price at the closing of the Note Purchase Agreements and the conversion price of $1.10 per share.

 

Stock-based compensation is share based awards granted to certain individuals. They are non-cash and affected by our historical stock prices which are irrelevant to forward-looking analyses and are not necessarily linked to our operational performance.

 

Expenses related to the purchase of a business - These expenses relate directly to the purchase of the GFH I transaction and consist mainly of legal and accounting fees, insurance fees and other consultants. We believe that these expenses do not reflect our operational performance. Therefore, we exclude them to provide investors with a consistent basis for comparing pre- and post-Vehicle Business purchase operating results.

 

The following table reconciles, for the periods presented, GAAP net loss attributable to MICT to non-GAAP net income attributable to MICT. and GAAP loss per diluted share attributable to MICT to non-GAAP net loss per diluted share attributable to MICT.:

As of September 30, 2020, the Company owns 53.39% of the outstanding Ordinary Shares of Micronet. Therefore, Micronet’s reports are consolidated in our financial statements from June 23, 2020. and expects to continue to hold a majority voting interest in the future.

 

On July 1, 2020, the Company completed the Acquisition, pursuant to the previously announced Restated Merger Agreement.

The Loan does not bear any interest and is provided for a period of twelve (12) months. The Loan Sum was granted for the purpose of supporting Micronet’s working capital and general corporate needs.

 

Debt Repayment

 

As of September 30, 2020, our total debt was $1,139,000 as compared to $1,856,000 on December 31, 2019. The change in total debt is due to: (i) the conversion of the BNN Note on January 21, 2020, previously issued on July 31, 2019, into 1,818,181 shares of the Company’s Series B Preferred Stock on February 3, 2020; (ii) the consolidation of Micronet Ltd. as from June 23, 2020.

 

Total Current Assets, Trade Accounts Receivable and Working Capital

 

As of September 30, 2020, our total current assets were $21,237,000, as compared to $4,417,000 on December 31, 2019. The increase is primarily due to (i) the increase in cash and cash equivalents as a result from the April and July Convertible Notes, and (ii) the consolidation of Micronet from June 23, 2020, and (iii) exercise of option and warrants.

 

As of September 30, 2020, our working capital was $16,141,000, as compared to $4,127,000 at December 31, 2019. The increase is primarily due to (i) the increase in cash and cash equivalents as a result from the April and July Convertible Notes, and (ii) the consolidation of Micronet from June 23, 2020, and (iii) exercise of option and warrants.

 

Our working capital may be increased if the $477,000 of proceeds from the sale of our previously wholly owned subsidiary, Enertec, shall be released from an escrow account pursuant to that certain purchase agreement with Coolisys Technologies Inc., or Coolisys, a subsidiary of DPW Holdings, Inc., or DPW as further set hereunder (under legal procedures). This is amount is currently in dispute in view of the legal proceedings between the parties as further detailed hereunder.

Financing Needs

 

The Company will be required to support its own operational financial needs, which include, among others, our general and administrative costs (such as for our various consultants in regulatory, tax, legal, accounting and other areas of business) and our financing costs related to the loans and funding instruments assumed by us.

 

We expect the net proceeds from the sale of the securities will be used to fund the growth and development of our insurance business, as well as for working capital and for other general corporate purposes. We may also use a portion of the net proceeds to acquire or invest in businesses, products and technologies that are complementary to our business, but we currently have no commitments or agreements relating to any of these types of transactions.

 

Based on our current business plan, and in view of our cash balance following the transactions described in this Item 2, we anticipate that our cash balances will be sufficient to permit us to conduct our operations and carry out our contemplated business plans for at least the next 12 months from the date of this Quarterly Report.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risks.

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures

 

Pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Company carried out an evaluation with the participation of the Company’s management, including Mr. Darren Mercer, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, and Mr. Arie Rand, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer (our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, respectively), of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under Rule 13a-15(e) or Rule 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of September 30, 2020. Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act, 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 the Company’s management, including the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Changes in internal control over financial reporting

 

No change occurred in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the quarterly period ended September 30, 2020, that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

In conjunction with, and as a condition to, the closing, the Company, Enertec, Coolisys, DPW and Mr. David Lucatz, our former Chief Executive Officer and director, executed a consulting agreement, or the Consulting Agreement, whereby we, via Mr. Lucatz, will provide Enertec with certain consulting and transitional services over a 3 year period as necessary and requested by the Coolisys (but in no event to exceed 20% of Mr. Lucatz’s time). Coolisys (via Enertec) will pay us an annual consulting fee of $150,000 as well as issue us 150,000 restricted shares of DPW Class A Common Stock, or the DPW Equity, for such services, to be vested and released from restriction in three equal installments, with the initial installment vesting the day after the closing and the remaining installments vesting on each of the first 2 anniversaries of the closing. In the event of a change of control in the Company, or if Mr. Lucatz shall no longer be employed by us, the rights and obligations under the Consulting Agreement shall be assigned to Mr. Lucatz along with the DPW Equity.  

 

In connection with the Share Purchase Agreement, based on an indemnification claim issued by Coolisys to the escrow agent alleging for breach of the Share Purchase Agreement, the Escrow Amount remained in escrow. On July 21, 2020, MICT management, a wholly owned subsidiary of the company and MICT (the “Seller Parties”) received a statement of claim filed in the District Court of Tel Aviv by Coolisys against the Seller Parties and its Board members [at the time the transaction was closed/after the transaction closed], in the amount of approximately $2,500,000, (the “Claim”). Pursuant to the Claim, Coolisys is alleging that certain misrepresentations in the Share Purchase Agreement resulted in losses to Coolisys and requesting, among other things, that the Court instruct the release of the Escrow Amount held by the escrow agent to Coolisys. The Company intends to defend the Claim and its position in court. An initial response is due to be filed on or before December 1, 2020. MICT and defendant directors have issued a notice of the Claim to its director and office insurance carrier seeking coverage. As of the date of hereof, the Escrow Amount remains in escrow, the annual consulting Fee has not been paid and the DPW Equity was never issued to MICT.

 

In March 2017, MICT entered into an Investment Banking Agreement (the “Sunrise Agreement”) with Sunrise Securities LLC and Trump Securities LLC (collectively, “Sunrise”) through Sunrise’s principal, Amnon Mandelbaum, pursuant to which Sunrise agreed to assist MICT in identifying, analyzing, structuring, and negotiating suitable business opportunities, such as a sale of stock or assets, merger, tender offer, joint venture, financing arrangement, private placement, or any similar transaction or combination thereof. Pursuant to a merger transaction closed by MICT as well as certain private placements completed by the Company Sunrise has raised a claim for the payment of certain fees in connection with the Agreement. Pursuant to demand issued by Sunrise, Sunrise is claiming the payment of an amount of $140,000 based on its involvement in a $9 million financing closed by MICT during July 2019 as well as the right to receive warrants comprised of 7% of the aggregate number of converted shares of common stock and warrants issued under such financing. Sunrise has requested further disclosure and may have additional claims which may give rise to litigation and/or other legal disputes. The parties have had disagreements about the applicability of the Sunrise Agreement and Company disputes in full or partially the claims. While parties are discussing a potential settlement there can be no assurance that a settlement will be reached with respect to such disagreements.

 

On September 22, 2020, the Company entered into a settlement and release agreement with Craig Marshak, or Marshak, in connection with a claim filed by Marshak against the Company and additional defendants. Pursuant to settlement and in consideration for a customary release and waiver for the benefit of MICT, MICT agreed to pay Marshak a sum of $125,000 in cash. Mr. Marshak then dismissed such claim.

 

On November 3, 2020, the Company entered into a settlement and release agreement with Maxim Group LLC, or Maxim, pursuant to which the Company and Maxim agreed to release one another from any and all claims arising out of that certain advisory agreement entered into by and between Maxim and BNN Technology PLC on February 22, 2018. In consideration therefor, as of today the Company was issued to Maxim $500,000 of Common Stock and to file a resale registration with respect to such shares.

Article I
MERGER

 

1.1 Merger. At the Effective Time, and subject to and upon the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the plan of merger and the articles of merger to be prepared by the Parties (the “Plan of Merger” and the “Articles of Merger” respectively), and in accordance with the applicable provisions the BVI Act, Intermediate, as a constituent party for the purpose of the BVI Act, and Merger Sub, as a constituent party for the purpose of the BVI Act, shall consummate the Merger, pursuant to which Merger Sub shall be merged with and into Intermediate, with Intermediate as the surviving entity for the purpose of the BVI Act, following which the separate corporate existence of Merger Sub shall cease and Intermediate shall continue as the surviving company. Intermediate, as the surviving company after the Merger, is hereinafter sometimes referred to as the “Surviving Company” (provided, that references to Intermediate for periods after the Effective Time shall include the Surviving Company).

 

1.2 Effective Time. Intermediate and Merger Sub shall cause the Merger to be consummated by filing the Articles of Merger and any other documents required to be filed pursuant to the BVI Act with the British Virgin Islands Registrar of Corporate Affairs (the “BVI Registrar”), in accordance with the relevant provisions of the BVI Act (the time at which such filing is registered by the BVI Registrar, or such later time as may be specified in the Articles of Merger, being the “Effective Time”).

 

1.3 Effect of the Merger. At the Effective Time, the effect of the Merger shall be as provided in this Agreement, the Articles of Merger and the applicable provisions of the BVI Act. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and subject thereto, at the Effective Time:

(b) Intermediate is liable for all claims, debts, liabilities and obligations of each of Intermediate and Merger Sub.

 

1.4 Merger Consideration. As consideration for the Merger, MICT shall deliver to the Intermediate Shareholder, a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of Twenty Five Million U.S. Dollars ($25,000,000), substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Consideration Note”), which Consideration Note shall be (i) under certain circumstances, automatically convertible into 22,727,273 shares of MICT Common Stock (the “Conversion Shares”) at a conversion price of $1.10 per share, and (ii) if not converted, repaid by returning the Intermediate Shareholder Transferred Assets.

All Intermediate Shares issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will automatically be cancelled and cease to exist in exchange for the right to receive the Consideration Note, with the Intermediate Shareholder being entitled to receive the Consideration Note, without interest, upon delivery of the Transmittal Documents in accordance with Section 1.8. As of the Effective Time, the holders of certificates previously evidencing Intermediate Shares outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall cease to have any rights with respect to such shares except as provided herein or by Law.

 

(b) Transfers of Ownership. If any certificate for securities of the Surviving Company is to be issued in a name other than that in which the certificate surrendered in exchange therefor is registered, it will be a condition of the issuance thereof that the certificate so surrendered will be properly endorsed (or accompanied by an appropriate instrument of transfer) and otherwise in proper form for transfer and that the person requesting such exchange will have paid to the Surviving Company or any agent designated by it any transfer or other Taxes required by reason of the issuance of a certificate for securities of the Surviving Company in any name other than that of the registered holder of the certificate surrendered, or established to the satisfaction of the Surviving Company or any agent designated by it that such tax has been paid or is not payable.

If as of the close of business on the date for which the Special Meeting is scheduled, MICT has not received proxies representing a sufficient number of shares to approve the MICT Stockholder Approval Matters, whether or not a quorum is present, MICT may make one or more successive postponements or adjournments of the Special Meeting. In connection with the Proxy Statement, MICT will file with the SEC all financial and other information about the transactions contemplated by this Agreement in accordance with applicable Law and applicable proxy solicitation rules set forth in MICT’s Organizational Documents, the Delaware Act and the rules and regulations of the SEC and Nasdaq. MICT shall cooperate and provide Intermediate (and its respective counsel) with a reasonable opportunity to review and comment on the Proxy Statement and any amendment or supplement thereto prior to filing the same with the SEC. Intermediate shall provide MICT with such information concerning Intermediate and Intermediate’s shareholders, officers, directors, employees, assets, Liabilities, condition (financial or otherwise), business and operations that may be required or appropriate for inclusion in the Proxy Statement, or in any amendments or supplements thereto, which information provided by Intermediate, as applicable, shall be true and correct and not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements made, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not materially misleading. Notwithstanding the foregoing, MICT makes no covenant, representation or warranty with respect to statements made in the Proxy Statement (and the letter to stockholders, notice of meeting included therewith), if any, based on information provided by Intermediate or any of its Representatives for inclusion therein.

Each Party shall promptly correct any information provided by it for use in the Proxy Statement (and other related materials) if and to the extent that such information is determined to have become false or misleading in any material respect or as otherwise required by applicable Laws. MICT shall amend or supplement the Proxy Statement and cause the Proxy Statement, as so amended or supplemented, to be filed with the SEC and to be disseminated to MICT’s stockholders, in each case as and to the extent required by applicable Laws and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and MICT’s Organizational Documents.

(a) MICT agrees that, within 180 calendar days after the Closing Date, MICT (or its successor) will file with the SEC (at MICT’s sole cost and expense) the Registration Statement and MICT shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to have the Registration Statement declared effective as soon as practicable after the filing thereof. Immediately upon the effectiveness of the Registration Statement, MICT shall cause MICT’s transfer agent to issue the Underlying Shares in book entry form without restrictive legends on MICT’s books and records. MICT agrees that MICT will cause such Registration Statement or another registration statement to remain continuously effective for a period of twelve (12) months. MICT’s obligations to include the Underlying Shares in the Registration Statement are contingent upon Intermediate Shareholder furnishing in writing to MICT such information regarding Intermediate Shareholder, the securities of MICT held by Intermediate Shareholder and the intended method of disposition of the Underlying Shares as shall be reasonably requested by MICT to effect the registration of the Underlying Shares, and shall execute such documents in connection with such registration as MICT may reasonably request that are customary of a selling shareholder in similar situations. MICT may suspend the use of any such registration statement if it determines in the opinion of counsel for MICT that in order for the registration statement to not contain a material misstatement or omission, an amendment thereto would be needed to include information that would at that time not otherwise be required in a current, quarterly, or annual report under the Exchange Act, as amended; provided, that, MICT shall use commercially reasonable efforts to make such registration statement available for the sale by Intermediate Shareholder of such securities as soon as practicable thereafter. MICT shall use its commercially reasonably efforts to register or qualify the Underlying Shares covered by the Registration Statement under the securities or “blue sky” laws of such jurisdictions as subscriber shall reasonably request in writing provided, however, that MICT shall not for any such purpose be required to qualify generally to transact business as a foreign corporation in any jurisdiction where it is not so qualified or to consent to general service of process in any such jurisdiction. MICT agrees that it will comply, and continue to comply during the effectiveness period, with the provisions of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act with respect to the disposition of all of the Underlying Shares covered by the Registration Statement in accordance with Intermediate Shareholder’s intended method of disposition set forth in the Registration Statement for such period.

 

(b) After the filing of a Registration Statement, MICT shall promptly, and in no event more than two (2) business days after such filing, notify Intermediate Shareholder of such filing, and shall further notify Intermediate Shareholder promptly and confirm such advice in writing in all events within two (2) business days of the occurrence of any of the following: (i) when such Registration Statement becomes effective; (ii) when any post-effective amendment to such Registration Statement becomes effective; (iii) the issuance or threatened issuance by the SEC of any stop order (and MICT shall take all actions required to prevent the entry of such stop order or to remove it if entered); and (iv) any request by the SEC for any amendment or supplement to such Registration Statement or any prospectus relating thereto or for additional information or of the occurrence of an event requiring the preparation of a supplement or amendment to such prospectus so that, as thereafter delivered to Intermediate Shareholder of the securities covered by such Registration Statement, such prospectus will not contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, and promptly make available to the holders of Underlying Shares included in such Registration Statement any such supplement or amendment.

 

35

 

 

(c) In connection with such registration, MICT will indemnify and hold harmless Intermediate Shareholder, against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which Intermediate Shareholder may become subject under the Securities Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the Registration Statement under which the Underlying Shares were registered under the Securities Act, any or final prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement thereof, or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, and will reimburse Intermediate Shareholder for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action; provided, however, that MICT will not be liable in any such case if and to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage or liability arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission so made in conformity with information furnished by Intermediate Shareholder in writing specifically for use in such registration statement or prospectus.

On or prior to April 21, 2020 (or such later date prior to the Closing as mutually agreed by MICT and Intermediate), MICT shall deliver the fully completed MICT Disclosure Schedules to Intermediate and Intermediate shall deliver the fully completed Intermediate Disclosure Schedules to MICT. Each of MICT and Intermediate shall have ten (10) Business Days to review the other Party’s Disclosure Schedules after its receipt thereof, and each of MICT and Intermediate, as applicable, shall, and shall cause its Representatives to, reasonably cooperate with the other Party and its Representatives in their review of the MICT Disclosure Schedules or Intermediate Disclosure Schedules, as applicable, including providing any access and information as required by Section 5.1(a) or Section 5.1(b), as applicable.

8.3 Third Parties. Nothing contained in this Agreement or in any instrument or document executed by any party in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby shall create any rights in, or be deemed to have been executed for the benefit of, any Person that is not a Party hereto or thereto or a successor or permitted assign of such a Party.

 

8.4 Governing Law; Jurisdiction. This Agreement shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the Laws of the State of Delaware without regard to the conflict of laws principles thereof. All Actions arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be heard and determined exclusively in any state or federal court located in New York, New York (or in any appellate court thereof) (the “Specified Courts”). Each Party hereto hereby (a) submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of any Specified Court for the purpose of any Action arising out of or relating to this Agreement brought by any Party hereto and (b) irrevocably waives, and agrees not to assert by way of motion, defense or otherwise, in any such Action, any claim that it is not subject personally to the jurisdiction of the above-named courts, that its property is exempt or immune from attachment or execution, that the Action is brought in an inconvenient forum, that the venue of the Action is improper, or that this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby may not be enforced in or by any Specified Court. Each Party agrees that a final judgment in any Action shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by Law.

8.5 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY WAIVES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY ACTION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY. EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF ANY ACTION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THAT FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 8.5.

 

8.6 Specific Performance.

Accordingly, each Party shall be entitled to seek an injunction or restraining order to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to seek to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof, without the requirement to post any bond or other security or to prove that money damages would be inadequate, this being in addition to any other right or remedy to which such Party may be entitled under this Agreement, at law or in equity.

In case any provision in this Agreement shall be held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in a jurisdiction, such provision shall be modified or deleted, as to the jurisdiction involved, only to the extent necessary to render the same valid, legal and enforceable, and the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby nor shall the validity, legality or enforceability of such provision be affected thereby in any other jurisdiction. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the Parties will substitute for any invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision a suitable and equitable provision that carries out, so far as may be valid, legal and enforceable, the intent and purpose of such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision.

Any such extension or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed by the Party or Parties to be bound thereby (including by MICT or Intermediate in lieu of such Party to the extent provided in this Agreement). Notwithstanding the foregoing, no failure or delay by a Party in exercising any right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise of any other right hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any waiver of any provision of this Agreement after the Closing shall also require the prior written consent of MICT.
