Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

Story continues below

On March 26, 2018, IDT Corporation (“IDT” or the “Registrant”) completed the spin-off of certain commercial real estate assets and interests in clinical and early stage pharmaceutical companies into Rafael Holdings, Inc. (“Rafael”). The registration statement on Form 10-12G (the “Registration Statement”) filed by Rafael under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 became effective on December 30, 2017. The Registration Statement includes detailed information about Rafael, the spin-off and related matters. An information statement setting forth the details of the spin-off (the “Information Statement”) is being mailed to stockholders of the Registrant on or about March 27, 2018. The Information Statement can be found on the investors relations page of the Registrant’s website at http://ir.idt.net. Approval of the Spin-Off by the Registrant’s stockholders was not required.

IDT also transferred assets to Rafael such that, at the time of the spin-off, Rafael had approximately $43.8 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, $1.2 million in current notes receivable, approximately $4.0 million in interests in hedge funds and $2.0 million in securities in another entity that are not liquid. The real estate assets and pharmaceutical interests will be operated as separate lines of business. The commercial real estate holdings consist of IDT’s headquarters building and its associated garage in Newark, New Jersey, an operations facility in Piscataway, New Jersey and a portion of a building in Israel that hosts offices for IDT and its affiliates. The pharmaceutical holdings include debt and equity interests in Rafael Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Rafael Pharmaceuticals”), which is a clinical stage, oncology-focused pharmaceutical company committed to the development and commercialization of therapies that exploit the metabolic differences between normal cells and cancer cells, and an equity interest in Lipomedix Pharmaceuticals Ltd., an early stage, pharmaceutical development company based in Israel. The real estate assets and pharmaceutical holdings were not germane to IDT’s communications and payment services businesses. Following the spin-off, IDT’s business will consist principally of IDT Telecom’s core communications, payment services and related businesses. The Registrant effected the spin-off by distributing one share of Rafael Class A common stock for every two shares of IDT Class A common stock and one share of Rafael Class B common stock for every two shares of IDT Class B common stock held of record as of March 13, 2018, the record date for the spin-off. In connection with the completion of the spin-off, unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information of the Company is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

As of March 27, 2018, there were a total of approximately 1.6 million shares of the Registrant’s Class A common stock and approximately 23.3 million shares of the Registrant’s Class B common stock outstanding.

Rafael’s Class B common stock is listed on the NYSE American under the symbol RFL.

Item 2.01. RegulationFD Disclosure.

On March 27, 2018, the Registrant and Rafael issued a joint press release announcing the consummation of the disposition of Rafael Holdings, Inc. described in Item 2.01 above. The press release is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of such section, nor shall such information be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

NOTES AND MANAGEMENT’S ASSUMPTIONS

TO THE PRO FORMA CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

The following is a description of the pro forma adjustments to the historical consolidated financial statements:
(A) Reflects the removal of assets, liabilities and total equity of Rafael Holdings, Inc. as if the disposition was consummated on January 31, 2018.
(B)

Reflects the removal of the results of operations of Rafael Holdings, Inc. as if the disposition was consummated on August 1, 2016.

(C)

Reflects the contribution of approximately $31.7 million in marketable securities, less approximately $151,000 of cash and cash equivalents, such that Rafael had approximately $43.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities at the time of the spinoff. In addition, reflects the contribution of $1.2 million in current notes receivable, approximately $4.0 million in interests in hedge funds and $2.0 million in securities in another entity that are not liquid. The $43.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities, $1.2 million in current notes receivable, $4.0 million in interests in hedge funds, and $2.0 million in securities was made such that the funds contributed by the Registrant aggregated a total of $50.8 million, as if the disposition was consummated on January 31, 2018.

(D)

Reflects the forgiveness of Rafael Holdings’ $24.4 million Due to IDT Corporation balance.

(E)

Reflects the forgiveness of Rafael Holdings’ $24.4 million Due to IDT Corporation balance and IDT Corporation’s $38.8 million contribution ($31.7 million in marketable securities, $1.2 million in current notes receivable, $4.0 million in interests in hedge funds and $2.0 million in securities in another entity that are not liquid, less $151,000 of cash and cash equivalents) as a $63.2 million capital contribution, as if the disposition was consummated on January 31, 2018.

(F) Reflects the adjustment for related party revenue from IDT Corporation included in Rafael Holdings’ historical financials as if the disposition was consummated on August 1, 2016.
(G) Reflects the payment of real estate rental expense from IDT to Rafael, due to the spinoff of the real estate holdings, as if the disposition was consummated on August 1, 2016.
(H) Reflects a deferred tax adjustment for income taxes on a consolidated basis. As of July 31, 2017, due to the projected future profitability of Rafael on a standalone basis, no valuation allowance was recorded against Rafael’s $8.4 million domestic deferred tax asset. As of August 1, 2017, Rafael amended its related party leases to more accurately reflect the space currently being used by IDT and other affiliated companies. As a result, in the six months ended January 31, 2018, Rafael recorded a valuation allowance of $8.4 million to reserve for the entirety of its domestic deferred tax asset.On a consolidated basis, this deferred tax asset had been previously reserved by IDT due to the expected future profitability from Rafael’s real estate being fully offset by losses from non-Rafael entities.
