7. Discontinued Operations
On June 12, 2020, the Company completed the sale of 100% of its equity interests in Spaceflight to M&Y Space. Under a transition services agreement, the Company provides, post-closing transition services to Spaceflight, including, but not limited to, the sublease of the Company’s office facility in Seattle, Washington and common area maintenance fees related to the sublease.
Settlement Arrangement for the Sale of the Spaceflight
On March 30, 2021, the Company settled certain disputes with respect to the purchase price in the total amount of $6.8 million, which was accrued as a liability as of December 31, 2020. The Company paid the settlement amount in two tranches—(i) $2.0 million on April 1, 2021 and (ii) the remaining $4.8 million was triggered at the closing of the Merger. In April 2021, the Company also terminated a launch arrangement with Spaceflight and, as agreed upon by the parties, offset the amount due to M&Y Space with a contractual refund of $3.9 million of which the net amount of $819 thousand was settled for cash in September 2021. As a result, the Company recorded a reduction to the accrued liability and a reduction to satellite procurement in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2021.
The following summarizes the components of the loss from discontinued operations, net of income taxes, that the Company has reported in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss. The Company recognized an unfavorable working capital adjustment of $1.0 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 primarily related to a potential shortfall in accounts receivable in the closing balance sheet delivered to M&Y Space.
The entire disclosure related to a disposal group. Includes, but is not limited to, a discontinued operation, disposal classified as held-for-sale or disposed of by means other than sale or disposal of an individually significant component.
