Jensyn Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:JSYNU) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On February 26, 2019, Jensyn Acquisition Corp. (the “Company” or “Jensyn”) entered into a Share Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with Peck Electric Co. (“Peck Electric”) and its stockholders (the “Stockholders”).
Peck Electric is the largest commercial solar EPC (engineering-procurement- contracting) company in the Northeast and ranked 60th in the United States by Solar Power World. Peck Electric provides EPC services to solar energy customers for projects ranging in size from several kilowatts for residential loads to multi-megawatt systems for large commercial and public work projects. Peck Electric has installed over 100 megawatts of solar systems since inception and is focused on profitable growth opportunities.
The material terms of the Exchange Agreement are summarized below.
Exchange of Shares
Upon the closing (the “Closing”) of the transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement, the stockholders of Peck Electric will exchange their shares of capital stock in Peck Electric for 3,234,501 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Share Exchange”), representing approximately 59% of Jensyn’s outstanding shares after giving effect to the business combination. As a result of the Share Exchange, Peck Electric will become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.
In the event that Peck Electric’s Adjusted EBITDA (as defined in the Exchange Agreement) for the twelve month period commencing on the first day of the first full calendar quarter following the Closing (the “Earnout Period”) is $5,000,000 or more (the “Adjusted EBITDA Target”) or the closing price of the Company’s common stock is $12.00 or more per share at any time during the Earnout Period (the “Stock Price Target”), then the Company shall issue 898,473 shares of the Company’s common stock to the Stockholders and issue to certain of the initial stockholders of the Company a number of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to the number of shares of the Company’s common stock forfeited by such stockholders to the extent that such shares are used to satisfy Company obligations or to induce investors to make an equity investment in the Company at or prior to the Closing as described below under “Forfeiture of Sponsor Shares.”
Forfeiture of Sponsor Shares
By separate agreement, certain of the initial stockholders of the Company (the “Sponsors”) have agreed to forfeit (i) up to 200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at the Closing to the extent that such shares are used to satisfy Company obligations or to induce investors to make an equity investment in the Company at or prior to the Closing and (ii) 200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock if neither the Adjusted EBITDA Target or the Stock Price Target is achieved during the Earnout Period.
Satisfaction of Company Expenses
The Company has agreed that immediately prior to the Closing, taking into account any funds remaining in the trust account (the “Trust Account”) established in connection with the Company’s initial public offering after giving effect to conversions as described below under “Stockholder Conversion Rights,” the Company shall satisfy its outstanding liabilities from cash on hand or by reissuing shares forfeited by the Sponsors as described above under “Forfeiture of Sponsor Shares”; provided, however, that in no event shall the Company satisfy such obligations in cash to the extent that payments of such obligations in cash would exceed $2,500,000.
Stockholder Conversion Rights
At the time that the Company seeks approval of the Share Exchange from its stockholders, the Company will offer its public shareholders the opportunity to convert their shares for cash upon the closing of the Share Exchange in an amount equal to their pro rata share of the funds held in the Trust Account that holds the proceeds of Jensyn’s initial public offering as provided by its amended and restated certificate of incorporation. As of February 27, 2019, the Trust Account held funds of approximately $6,068,239. In connection with the stockholder vote to extend the date by which the Company must complete its initial business combination to July 2, 2019, Jensyn Capital, LLC, a company controlled by the Company’s initial stockholders, agreed to deposit $.05 per share per month during the period beginning on January 4, 2019 and ending on the earlier of July 2, 2019 or the date that the Company completes its initial business combination for each public share that was not converted into cash in connection with the special meeting of stockholders held on January 3, 2019. If a business combination is not completed by July 2, 2019, this contribution will increase the funds available in the Trust Account for the conversion of shares to approximately $11.30 per share.
Conditions to Closing
The closing of the Share Exchange is subject to a number of conditions, including the approval of the Share Exchange by the Company’s Board of Directors, the Company’s reasonable satisfaction with the results of its due diligence investigation of Peck Electric, the approval of the Company’s stockholders, the receipt by the Company of an opinion from an investment banking firm that the transaction is fair, from a financial point of view, to the Company’s stockholders and the approval by the Company’s stockholders of an extension of the date by which the Company must complete its initial business combination to July 2, 2019. In addition, the Company and Peck Electric must have combined net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 after the Closing.
The senior management of Peck Electric will replace Jensyn’s existing management team following the closing of the Share Exchange. In addition, it is anticipated that at the time that Jensyn seeks approval of the Share Exchange by its stockholders, Jensyn’s stockholders will be asked to elect a new Board of Directors. The nominees will be three individuals designated by Peck Electric and two individuals designated by the Company.
Representations and Warranties
Under the Exchange Agreement, each of the Company, on the one hand, and Peck Electric and the Stockholders, on the other hand, made customary representations and warranties for transactions of this nature.
Under the Exchange Agreement, the Stockholders have agreed to indemnify the Company and its officers, directors and affiliates and representatives against losses and liabilities resulting from any breach of the representations and warranties of Peck Electric or the Stockholders contained in the Exchange Agreement or any breach of the covenants of Peck Electric and the Stockholders contained in the Exchange Agreement.
The Company has agreed to indemnify the Stockholders and their affiliates and representatives against losses and liabilities resulting from any breach of the representations or warranties of the Company set forth in the Exchange Agreement or any breach of the covenants of the Company contained in the Exchange Agreement.

If the Exchange Agreement is terminated to the provisions of the Exchange Agreement, all further obligations of the parties thereunder will terminate without any liability of any party thereto, other than any obligation or liability arising from any prior willful and material breach by such party and as described under the caption “Termination Payment” below.
