Goodwill and Acquisition

Note 2. Goodwill and Acquisition

On November 2, 2018, the Company invested cash by purchasing stock under a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “IIU SPA”) from IIU Inc. (“IIU”), a synergistic Virginia based travel insurance brokerage company controlled by Craven House N.A. (whose ownership excluding unexercised warrants is approximately 20% of the Company’s outstanding stock as of the date of acquisition), pursuant to which IIU issued to the Company a Senior Convertible Promissory Note (“IIU Note”) in the original principal amount of $1,500,000 in exchange for a purchase price of $1,500,000.  The maturity date of the Note is 360 dates after the date of issuance (subject to acceleration upon an event of default).  The Note carries a 3.0% interest rate, with accrued but unpaid interest being payable on the Note’s maturity date.  

The IIU Note allows the Company the right on or after the maturity date to convert any unpaid principal and accrued and unpaid interest of the IIU Note into shares of IIU based on a conversion amount which is the fair value of the common shares of IIU at the time. The conversion price will be reset if IIU issues or sells common shares, convertibles securities or options at a price per share that is less than the conversion price in effect immediately prior to such issue or sale or deemed issuance or sale of such dilutive issuance.

On January 16, 2019, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement with Craven House North America, LLC (“Craven”) to purchase all of the shares of IIU as a possible synergistic effort to diversify revenue sources that are believed to be accretive to earnings.  IIU provided global medical insurance products for international travelers, specializing in policies covering high-risk destinations, emerging markets and foreign travelers coming to the United States. All policies are fully underwritten with no claim risk remaining with IIU.

The Board of Directors of LMFA approved the purchase of IIU. LMFA purchased 100% of the outstanding stock of IIU for $5,089,357.  LMFA paid the Purchase Price at closing as follows:



Cancellation by LMFA of all principal and accrued interest of IIU’s Promissory Note dated November 3, 2018 and issued to LMFA for principal indebtedness and accrued interest of $1,507,375.


LMFA issued to Craven a $3,581,982 Senior Convertible Promissory Note (“Craven Convertible Note”) for the balance of the Purchase Price.  At the option of Craven, the Convertible Note may be paid in restricted common shares of LMFA or cash.  The Craven Convertible Note shall bear simple interest at 3% per annum.  The Craven Convertible Note shall be due and payable 360 days from the Closing Date. If repaid by LMFA in restricted common stock, the outstanding principal and interest of the Craven Convertible Note shall be paid by LMFA by issuing to Seller a number of restricted common shares equal to the adjusted principal and accrued interest owing on the Craven Convertible Note divided by $2.41. The note principal was subsequently reduced by $120,200 arising from lower than expected Closing Cash and Net Working Capital. Craven had verbally agreed to extend repayment of this Craven Convertible Note 12 months from April 15, 2019.


Net cash received in the business acquisition was $51,327.

As such, the $1.5 million note receivable was cancelled as of January 16, 2019.

We performed an assessment effective as of December 31, 2019 in light of the Company’s sale of IIU on January 8, 2020 which resulted in a $1.65 million goodwill impairment.  On January 8, 2020, the Company entered into a SPA with Craven pursuant to which the Company sold to Craven all of the issued and outstanding shares of IIU for $3,562,569.  The purchase price was paid by Craven through the cancellation of the $3,461,782 Convertible Promissory Note issued by LMFA to Craven dated January 16, 2019 plus forgiveness of $100,787 of accrued interest.
