(b) 1,000,000 Shares; and
(c) Warrants to purchase the following:
(i) 6,000,000 shares of Common Stock at $2.65 per share; (ii) 4,000,000 shares of Common Stock at $3.00 per share; (iii) 2,000,000 shares of Common Stock at $3.50 per share; (iv) 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock at $4.00 per share; (v) 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock at $4.50 per share; (vi) 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock at $5.00 per share; and (vii) 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock at $5.50 per share.
In my opinion, next to nothing, so Vendingdata made a good deal in selling one million shares to Elixir at an above-market price with nearly worthless warrants thrown in as an incentive.
From the point of view of anyone who thinks that the market may be undervaluing Vendingdata, though, those warrants are a huge, huge giveaway. I ran the numbers through an options calculator last year and came up with a total value way above $10 million. Since $2.65 million is a lot less than "way over $10 million," I assume that Vendingdata management's opinion of the company's future is more like mine than like its own shareholders'.
The calculation could be done in reverse, too. That is, if the package of shares and warrants is assumed to be worth $2.65 million, what does that tell us about the stock? I'd look at it this way: use the same volatility and risk-free rate of return and find out what the current stock price would have to be to make the share/warrant package worth $2.65 million.
