|Item 8.01.|| |
The following risk factors are provided to update the risk factors of 23andMe previously disclosed in 23andMes periodic reports filed with the SEC, including its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2021:
We face additional risks as a result of the Acquisition and may be unable to integrate our businesses successfully and realize the anticipated synergies and related benefits of the Acquisition or do so within the anticipated timeframe.
On November 1, 2021, we completed our acquisition of the Company. As a result of the Acquisition, 23andMe faces various additional risks, including, among others, the following:
difficulties in integrating and managing the combined operations of the Company, and realizing the anticipated economic, operational, and other benefits in a timely manner, which could result in substantial costs and delays or other operational, technical, or financial problems;
disruption to the Companys business and operations and relationships with service providers and other partners;
loss of key employees of the Company and other challenges associated with integrating new employees into our culture, as well as reputational harm if integration is not successful;
diversion of management time and focus from operating our business to addressing Acquisition integration challenges;
diversion of significant resources from the ongoing development of our existing products, services, and operations;
failure to successfully realize our intended business strategy;
increase in the operating losses that we expect to incur in future periods;
regulatory complexities of integrating or managing the combined operations or expanding into other industries or parts of the healthcare industry;
greater than anticipated costs related to the integration of the Companys business and operations into ours;
increase in compliance and related costs associated with the addition of a regulated business;
responsibility for the liabilities of the Company, including those that were not disclosed to us or exceed our estimates, as well as, without limitation, liabilities arising out of their failure to maintain effective data protection and privacy controls and comply with applicable regulations; and
potential accounting charges to the extent intangibles recorded in connection with the Acquisition, such as goodwill, trademarks, client relationships, or intellectual property, are later determined to be impaired and written down in value.
Our ability to execute all such plans will depend on various factors, many of which remain outside our control. Any of these risks could adversely affect our business and financial results.
The process of integrating the Companys operations into our operations could result in unforeseen operating difficulties and require significant resources.
The following factors, among others, could reduce our revenues and earnings, increase our operating costs, and result in a loss of projected synergies:
if we are unable to successfully integrate the duties, responsibilities, and other factors of interest to the management and employees of the acquired business, we could lose employees to our competitors, which could significantly affect our ability to operate the business and complete the integration;
if we are unable to implement and retain uniform standards, controls, policies, procedures, and information systems; and
if the integration process causes any delays with the delivery of our services, or the quality of those services, we could lose customers, which would reduce our revenues and earnings.
The process of integrating the Company and its associated services and technologies involves numerous risks that could materially and adversely affect our results of operations or stock price.
The following factors, among others, could materially and adversely affect our results of operations or stock price:
expenses related to the acquisition process and impairment charges to goodwill and other intangible assets related to the Acquisition;
the dilutive effect on earnings per share as a result of issuances of our stock and incurring operating losses;
stock volatility due to investors uncertainty regarding the value of the Company;
diversion of capital from other uses;
failure to achieve the anticipated benefits of the Acquisition in a timely manner, or at all; and
adverse outcome of litigation matters or other contingent liabilities assumed in or arising out of the Acquisition.
Notwithstanding the due diligence investigation we performed in connection with the Acquisition, the Company may have liabilities, losses, or other exposures for which we do not have adequate insurance coverage, indemnification, or other protection.
While we performed significant due diligence on the Company prior to signing the Merger Agreement, we are dependent on the accuracy and completeness of statements and disclosures made or actions taken by the Company and its representatives when conducting due diligence and evaluating the results of such due diligence. We did not control and may be unaware of activities of the Company before the Acquisition, including intellectual property and other litigation or disputes, information security vulnerabilities, violations of laws, policies, rules and regulations, commercial disputes, tax liabilities, and other liabilities.
Our post-closing recourse is limited under the Merger Agreement.
The Indemnifying Parties (as defined in the Merger Agreement) obligations to indemnify us are limited to, among others, breaches of specified representations and warranties and covenants included in the Merger Agreement and other specific indemnities as set forth in the Merger Agreement. In the event of a breach of a representation or warranty, we cannot recover in respect of a claim for indemnification pursuant to the Merger Agreement unless and until the indemnifiable losses exceed $2,000,000 (the Deductible), in which case we would only be entitled to recover solely such amounts in excess of the Deductible. Additionally, we may not recover losses in excess of $2,000,000 (the Cap). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Deductible and the Cap do not apply to indemnification claims based on breaches of Fundamental Representations or Fraud (each as defined in the Merger Agreement); furthermore, the Cap does not apply to indemnification claims based on breaches of Specified Representations (as defined in the Merger Agreement).
We cannot make an indemnification claim against the Indemnifying Parties for a breach of a representation or warranty after the date that is 18 months after the date of closing of the Acquisition (the Closing); provided, however, (1) the Fundamental Representations survive the Closing and continue in full force and effect until 6 years after the Closing, (2) the Specified Representations survive the Closing and continue in full force and effect until 30 months after the Closing, and (3) any claim of Fraud survives the Closing indefinitely.
23andMe obtained a representation and warranty insurance policy to insure against certain losses arising from breaches of, or inaccuracies in, the representations and warranties of the Company. The policy is subject to a retention amount, exclusions, policy limits, and certain other terms and conditions.
If any issues arise post-closing, we may not be entitled to sufficient, or any, indemnification or recourse from the Indemnifying Parties, which could have a material adverse impact on our business and results of operations.
