|4. PATENT ACQUISITION||
NOTE 4 – PATENT ACQUISITION
On May 19, 2021, the Company entered into a Patents Purchase Agreement (the “Patents Agreement”) with F&T. The Company and F&T had previously jointly developed and patented a water treatment technology used or useful in growing aquatic species in re-circulating and enclosed environments (the “Patent”) with each party owning a fifty percent (50%) interest. Upon the closing of the Patents Agreement, the Company would purchase F&T’s interest in the Patent, F&T’s 100% interest in a second patent associated with the first Patent issued to F&T in March 2018, and all other intellectual property rights owned by F&T for a purchase price of $2,000,000 in cash and issued 9,900,990 shares of the Company’s common stock with a market value of $0.505 per share for a total fair value of $5,000,000, for a total acquisition price of $7,000,000. The Company paid the cash purchase price on May 20, 2021 and the closing of the Patents Agreement took place on May 25, 2021. As of June 30, 2021, the shares of common stock have not been issued and are therefore classified in Shares payable.
In accordance with ASC 805-10-55-5A, as substantially all the assets acquired are concentrated in a single identifiable asset, the patents, the acquisition has been determined to not be considered a business combination but an asset acquisition. The consideration will be allocated to the two patents, which were both approved in December, 2018, and will be amortized through the earliest of their useful life or December, 2038. Amortization over the next five years is expected to be $390,000 per year, for a total of $1,950,000. Amortization expense was $49,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2021
Tabular disclosure of the characteristics, including initial carrying value, residual amount, weighted average useful life, of finite-lived intangible assets acquired during the period by major class. A major class is composed of intangible assets that can be grouped together because they are similar, either by nature or by their use in the operations of the company.
