Initial Public Offering


On February 27, 2019, the Super League completed its initial public offering (“IPO’) of its common stock, pursuant to which the Company issued and sold an aggregate of 2,272,727 shares of common stock at $11.00 per share, raising aggregate net proceeds of $22,458,000 after deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and offering costs of $2,542,000. Concurrent with the closing of the IPO on February 27, 2019 (the “IPO Closing Date”), in accordance with the related agreements, all outstanding principal and interest for the 9.00% convertible notes outstanding, totaling $13,793,000, was automatically converted into 1,475,164 shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $9.35.


Super League currently intends to use the net proceeds received from the offering for working capital and general corporate purposes, including sales and marketing activities, product development and capital expenditures. Super League may also use a portion of the net proceeds for the acquisition of, or investment in, technologies, solutions or businesses that may compliment the Company’s business and or accelerate the Company’s growth.


Upon closing of the IPO, 83,333 options and 125,000 warrants previously granted to the CEO (with an average grant date fair value of $8.50) became fully vested. As a result, the Company recorded an additional $1,770,000 of stock-based compensation during the six months ended June 30, 2019.


Pursuant to the related underwriting agreement, in connection with the completion of the IPO, for the purchase price of $50.00, the Company issued a warrant to purchase shares of our common stock equal to 3.0% of the shares sold in the IPO, or 68,182 shares, at an exercise price of $11.00 per share (the “Underwriters’ Warrants”). The Underwriters’ Warrants are exercisable during the period commencing from the date of the close of the IPO and ending five years from the closing date of the IPO. The Underwriters’ Warrants represent additional noncash offering costs, with an estimated grant date fair value of $547,000, which was reflected in additional-paid-in capital when issued and as a corresponding offering cost in the condensed statement of shareholders equity for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019. The fair value of the Underwriters’ Warrant was estimated on February 27, 2019, the grant date, using the Black Scholes-Merton option pricing model and the following weighted-average assumptions: (i) volatility of 95%, (ii) risk-free interest rate of 2.5%, and (iii) expected term of 5 years.


Reverse Stock Split


On February 8, 2019, the Company filed an amendment to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation to effect a reverse split of shares of the Company’s common stock on a one-for-three basis (the “Reverse Stock Split”). All references to common stock, warrants to purchase common stock, options to purchase common stock, early exercised options, restricted stock, share data, per share data and related information contained in the financial statements have been retrospectively adjusted to reflect the effect of the Reverse Stock Split for all periods presented. No fractional shares were issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Any fractional shares resulting from the Reverse Stock Split will be rounded down to a whole share, and any effected stockholders will receive a cash payment equal to the value of such fractional shares.


In-Kind Contribution of Services


In June 2017, the Company entered into an arrangement with a major media network for $1,000,000 of in-kind contributions of media services in exchange for 92,592 shares of common stock. This prepaid advertising cost was amortized over an 18-month period ending as of December 31, 2018. Expense included in selling, marketing and advertising expenses in the statement of operations for usage of the in-kind media services for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $295,000.
