Reverse Merger and Exchange Ratio


On January 30, 2018, DC Acquisition Corporation (“Merger Sub”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of WPCS International Incorporated (“WPCS”), completed its merger with and into DropCar, Inc. (“Private DropCar”), with Private DropCar surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of WPCS. This transaction is referred to as the “Reverse Merger.” The Reverse Merger was effected pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”), dated September 6, 2017, by and among WPCS, Private DropCar and Merger Sub.


As a result of the Reverse Merger, each outstanding share of Private DropCar share capital (including shares of Private DropCar share capital issued upon the conversion of outstanding convertible debt) automatically converted into the right to receive approximately 0.3273 shares of WPCS’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Exchange Ratio”). Following the closing of the Reverse Merger, holders of WPCS’s common stock immediately prior to the Reverse Merger owned approximately 22.9% on a fully diluted basis, and holders of Private DropCar common stock immediately prior to the Reverse Merger owned approximately 77.1% on a fully diluted basis, of WPCS’s common stock.


The Reverse Merger has been accounted for as a reverse acquisition under the acquisition method of accounting where Private DropCar is considered the accounting acquirer and WPCS is the acquired company for financial reporting purposes. Private DropCar was determined to be the accounting acquirer based on the terms of the Merger Agreement and other factors, such as relative voting rights and the composition of the combined company’s board of directors and senior management, which was deemed to have control. The pre-acquisition financial statements of Private DropCar became the historical financial statements of WPCS following the Reverse Merger. The historical financial statements, outstanding shares and all other historical share information have been adjusted by multiplying the respective share amount by the Exchange Ratio as if the Exchange Ratio had been in effect for all periods presented.


Immediately following the Reverse Merger, the combined company changed its name from WPCS International Incorporation to DropCar, Inc. The combined company following the Reverse Merger may be referred to herein as “the combined company,” “DropCar,” or the “Company.”


The Company’s shares of common stock listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market, previously trading through the close of business on January 30, 2018 under the ticker symbol “WPCS,” commenced trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market, on a post-Reverse Stock Split adjusted basis, under the ticker symbol “DCAR” on January 31, 2018.


Discontinued Operations


On December 24, 2018, the Company completed the sale of WPCS International – Suisun City, Inc., a California corporation (the “Suisun City Operations”), its wholly-owned subsidiary, pursuant to the terms of a stock purchase agreement, dated December 10, 2018 (the “Purchase Agreement”) by and between the Company and World Professional Cabling Systems, LLC, a California limited liability company (the “Purchaser”). Upon the closing of the sale, the Purchaser acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock, no par value per share, of Suisun City Operations, for an aggregate purchase price of $3,500,000. The sale of Suisun City Operations represented a strategic shift that has had a major effect on the Company’s operations, and therefore, is presented as discontinued operations in the 2018 consolidated statement of operations. The 2017 statement of operations is not recast as the business was not owned by DropCar at that time.


Notification Letter


On September 25, 2018, the Company received a notification letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") informing the Company that for the last 30 consecutive business days, the bid price of the Company’s securities had closed below $1.00 per share, which is the minimum required closing bid price for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).


Reverse Stock Split


On March 8, 2019, the Company filed a certificate of amendment to its amended and restated certificate of incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to effect a one-for-six reverse stock split of its outstanding shares of common stock. Proportional adjustments for the reverse stock split were made retroactively to the Company's shares of common stock, outstanding stock options, warrants and equity incentive plans for all periods presented.


Acquisition Accounting


The fair value of WPCS assets acquired and liabilities assumed was based upon management’s estimates assisted by an independent third-party valuation firm. The assumptions are subject to change within the measurement period up to one year from date of acquisition. Critical estimates in valuing certain intangible assets include, but are not limited to, future expected cash flows from customer relationships and the trade name, present value and discount rates. Management’s estimates of fair value are based upon assumptions believed to be reasonable, but which are inherently uncertain and unpredictable and, as a result, actual results may differ from estimates.


The purchase price allocation of $9.8 million was as follows:


Fair value of equity consideration, 4,685,164 common shares   $ 9,792,000  
Liability assumed: notes payable     158,000  
Total purchase price consideration   $ 9,950,000  
Tangible assets        
Net working capital (1)   $ 6,664,000  
Deferred revenue     (2,300,000 )
Fixed assets & equipment     376,000  
Intangible assets (2)        
Customer contracts     1,200,000  
Trade name     600,000  
Goodwill     3,410,000  
Total allocation of purchase price consideration   $ 9,950,000  


(1)  Net working capital consists of cash of $4,947,000; accounts receivable and contract assets of $3,934,000; other assets of $318,000; and accrued liabilities of $2,535,000.


(2)  The useful lives related to the acquired customer relationships and trade name are expected to be approximately 10 years.

DropCar Operating


DropCar Operating is a provider of automotive vehicle support, fleet logistics, and concierge services for both consumers and the automotive industry. Its cloud-based Enterprise Vehicle Assistance and Logistics (“VAL”) platform and mobile application (“app”) assists consumers and automotive-related companies to reduce the costs, hassles and inefficiencies of owning a car, or fleet of cars, in urban centers. In July 2018, DropCar Operating launched its Mobility Cloud platform which provides automotive-related businesses with a 100% self-serve SaaS version of its VAL platform to manage their own operations and drivers, as well as customer relationship management (“CRM”) tools that enable their clients to schedule and track their vehicles for service pickup and delivery. DropCar Operating’s Mobility Cloud also provides access to private APIs (application programming interface) which automotive-businesses can use to integrate DropCar Operating’s logistics and field support directly into their own applications and processes natively, to create more seamless client experiences.


On the enterprise side, OEMs, dealers, and other service providers in the automotive space are increasingly being challenged with consumers who have limited time to bring in their vehicles for maintenance and service, making it difficult to retain valuable post-sale service contracts or scheduled consumer maintenance and service appointments. Additionally, many of the vehicle support centers for automotive providers (i.e., dealerships, including body work and diagnostic shops) have moved out of urban areas thus making it more challenging for OEMs and dealers in urban areas to provide convenient and efficient service for their consumer and business clientele. Similarly, shared mobility providers and other fleet managers, such as rental car companies and car share programs, face a similar urban mobility challenge: getting cars to and from service bays, rebalancing vehicle availability to meet demand in fleeting and de-fleeting vehicles to and from dealer lots, auction sites and to other locations.


While DropCar Operating’s business-to-business (“B2B”) and business-to-consumer (“B2C”) services generate revenue and help meet the unmet demand for vehicle support services, DropCar Operating is also building-out a platform and customer base that it believes positions it well for developments in the automotive space when vehicles become partially to fully autonomous and vehicle ownership becomes more subscription based with transportation services and concierge options well-suited to match a customer’s immediate needs.


To date, the Company operates primarily in the New York metropolitan area. In May 2018, the Company expanded operations with its B2B business in San Francisco. In June 2018 the Company expanded its B2B operations in Washington DC. In August 2018, the Company expanded B2B operations to Los Angeles. These three new market expansions are with a major original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”) customer.
