Purchase Price for Threshold on Closing Date of Merger

The purchase price for Threshold on August 1, 2017, the closing date of the Merger, was as follows (in thousands, except per share amounts):




August 1, 2017



Number of share of the combined company owned by Threshold stockholders






Multiplied by the price per share of Threshold common stock






Purchase price before options






Threshold options assumed






Settlement of preexisting bridge note with Threshold






Total purchase price








Represents the number of shares of common stock of the combined company that Threshold stockholders owned as of the closing of the Merger pursuant to the Merger Agreement. This amount is calculated as 6,508,356 shares from Threshold common stock outstanding as of August 1, 2017, adjusted for the 11-for-1 reverse stock split.


The fair value of Threshold common stock used in determining the purchase price was $5.94, which was derived from the $0.54 per share closing price of Threshold on August 1, 2017, the current price at the time of closing, adjusted for the 11-for-1 reverse stock split.


Because Private Molecular is considered to be the acquirer for accounting purposes, the pre-Merger vested stock options granted by Threshold under the 2014 Equity Incentive Plan are deemed to have been exchanged for equity awards of the Company and as such the portion of the acquisition date fair value of these equity awards attributable to pre-Merger service to Threshold were accounted for as a component of the consideration transferred.


Represent the bridge loan at the date of merger between Threshold and Molecular. Since the receivable on Threshold’s balance sheet was settled as part of the merger, it is deemed to be a reduction in the purchase price.
