Quarterly report pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d)

On June 5, 2020, the Company completed a transaction (the “Transaction”) with IDTEC subject to the terms and conditions of the APA and that was accounted for as an asset purchase. Pursuant to the APA, IDTEC provided personnel, experience, and access to funding to assist with the development of the SOBR device, as well as sold to us certain robotics assets, which our management believes are synergistic with our current assets, in exchange for 12,000,000 shares of our common stock after giving effect to the reverse stock split effected in connection with closing the Transaction.


As a result of closing the Transaction, the Company issued a convertible promissory note for all the funds spent or advanced by IDTEC prior to closing. This note totaled $1,485,189 (the “APA Note”), with simple interest at 10% per annum, due upon demand, and may be convertible into shares of common stock at $0.50 per share (after giving effect to the reverse stock split and subject to anti-dilution protection against any future securities we may issue at an effective price of less than $0.50 per share) at the discretion of the holder. The repayment of APA Note is secured by a first priority security lien or security interest in the patents, trademarks, tradenames, and other intellectual property of the Company.


At closing, some of the closing conditions under the APA were either waived and/or modified by the parties. In order to document those modifications and waivers, we entered into a Waiver Under Asset Purchase Agreement and Post-Closing Covenant Agreement with IDTEC. One of the closing conditions that was the subject of the Waiver Under Asset Purchase Agreement and Post-Closing Covenant Agreement was the requirement that the Company have under $125,000 in permitted liabilities (not including aged liabilities) after closing of the Transaction. At closing we had approximately $158,000 in non-permitted liabilities under the APA. As a result, the Company issued a Warrant to Purchase Common Stock to IDTEC (the “Warrant”), under which IDTEC will purchase up to 320,000 shares of our common stock (post-split) at an exercise price of $0.50 per share, if either (i) we are forced to pay a non-permitted liability, then we may force IDTEC to exercise the Warrant and pay the exercise price to pay the non-permitted liability, but only in an amount sufficient to pay the non-permitted liability, or (ii) if IDTEC otherwise elects to exercise the Warrant and acquire some or all of the shares underlying the Warrant. The Warrant expires five years after the date of issuance.


The Transaction recorded as an asset purchase was valued at $29,222,955, which consists of the market price as of June 5, 2020 of the Company’s 12,000,000 shares of common stock issued totaling $27,120,000, the funds spent by IDTEC and affiliates prior to closing of $1,407,051 and the fair value of the Warrant issued of $695,454. In determining the fair value of the intangible assets, the Company considered, among other factors, the best use of acquired assets such as the analysis of historical financial performance of the products and estimates of future performance of the products and intellectual properties acquired. The allocation to identifiable intangible assets required extensive use of financial information and management’s best estimate of fair value.


The following summarizes the transaction closing with IDTEC on June 5, 2020:


Property and equipment                                


$ 47,725


Intangible assets                                  





Total assets                                            


$ 29,222,955







Net purchase (fair value of stock issued, warrants and notes payable) 


$ 29,222,955



Subsequent to the Transaction closing, the Company evaluated the fair value of the assets acquired based on market estimates for property and equipment and discounted net cash flow for the SOBR Safe intellectual technology. The present value of the discounted cash flow utilized a 75% discount, which included a 25% risk return premium, over an estimated five-year net revenue stream expected to be derived from the technology acquired. Based on the assessment of fair value, the Company recognized an asset impairment loss of $25,320,555 resulting from the APA during the year ended December 31, 2020. The impairment was due to the increase of the Company’s stock price value. The stock price of the Company at closing of the Transaction was significantly higher than expected from the stock price of the Company when the Company signed the APA. The number of shares to be given to IDTEC as consideration for the Transaction would not get updated for any stock price changes.
