(13) Business Acquisitions

Float Left Interactive, Inc.

In November 2019, the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement and acquired substantially all the assets of Float Left, a business comprised of connected TVs, video-based content, application development and distribution, including technical consulting services, software development and maintenance related to video distribution. The Company plans to utilize Float Left’s team and technology platform to further grow its content delivery capabilities in OTT platforms while providing new revenue opportunities.

The acquisition has been accounted for under the purchase method of accounting, and accordingly, the purchase price has been allocated to the identifiable assets and liabilities assumed pursuant to the asset purchase agreement based on fair values at the acquisition date. The operating results of Float Left, which were not material, have been included in the consolidated financial statements of the Company since the date of acquisition. The supplementary proforma information, assuming this acquisition occurred as of the beginning of the prior periods, and the operations of Float Left for the period from the November 26, 2019 acquisition date through the end of fiscal 2019 were immaterial. The Company incurred $78,000 of acquisition-related costs and are included in general and administrative expense in the accompanying fiscal 2019 consolidated statement of operations. The acquisition date fair value of consideration transferred for Float Left was approximately $1,102,000, which consisted of $353,000 of cash, net of cash acquired, $459,000 of common stock and $290,000 of contingent consideration.

The estimated fair value of the common stock issued as purchase consideration, 100,000 shares, is based on the issue date closing price of the Company’s stock. The purchase includes contingent consideration of up to 50,000 additional shares of our common stock in the event certain performance metrics are satisfied relating to the Float Left business following closing. The estimated fair value of contingent consideration is primarily based on the Float Left’s projected performance for each of the next two fiscal years following the closing date and the closing price of the Company’s stock.

The following table summarizes our allocation of the Float Left purchase consideration:
