Airspan Networks Holdings Inc. (the “Company”) designs and produces wireless network equipment for 4G and 5G networks for both mainstream public telecommunications service providers and private network implementations. Airspan provides Radio Access Network (“RAN”) products based on Open Virtualized Cloud Native Architectures that support technologies including 5G new radio (“5G NR”) and Long-Term Evolution (“LTE”), and Fixed Wireless standards, operating in licensed, lightly-licensed and unlicensed frequencies.
The market for the Company’s wireless systems includes mobile carriers, other public network operators and private and government network operators for command and control in industrial and public safety applications such as smart utilities, defense, transportation, mining and oil and gas. The Company’s strategy applies the same network technology across all addressable sectors.
The Company’s main operations are in Slough, United Kingdom; Mumbai and Bangalore, India; Tokyo, Japan; Airport City, Israel; Santa Clara, California; and the Company’s corporate headquarters are in the United States (“U.S.”) in Boca Raton, Florida.
On August 13, 2021 (the “Closing”), the Company (formerly New Beginnings Acquisition Corp.) (the “Company”) consummated its previously announced business combination transaction (the “Business Combination”) pursuant to the business combination agreement (the “Business Combination Agreement”), dated March 8, 2021, by and among the Company, Artemis Merger Sub Corp., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned direct subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), and Airspan Networks Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Legacy Airspan”). In connection with the Closing of the Business Combination, the Company changed its name to Airspan Networks Holdings Inc. Unless the context otherwise requires, references to “Airspan”, the “Company”, “us”, “we”, “our” and any related terms prior to the Closing of the Business Combination are intended to mean Legacy Airspan and its consolidated subsidiaries, and after the Closing of the Business Combination, Airspan Networks Holdings Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries. In addition, unless the context otherwise requires, references to “New Beginnings” and “NBA” are references to New Beginnings Acquisition Corp., the Company’s name prior to the Closing.
In connection with the Closing of the Business Combination, NBA sold 11,500,000 warrants each exercisable for one share of the Company’s common stock (the “Common Stock”) at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (the “Public Warrants”), and 545,000 warrants each exercisable for one share of Common Stock at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (the “Private Placement Warrants” and, together with the Public Warrants, the “Common Stock Warrants”).
On March 8, 2023 (the “Closing Date”), the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Mimosa Purchase Agreement”) with Airspan Networks Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Seller”), Mimosa Networks, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of Seller (“Mimosa”), and Radisys Corporation, an Oregon corporation (“Buyer”), pursuant to which Seller will sell all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of Mimosa to Buyer for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $60.0 million in cash (subject to customary adjustments as set forth in the Mimosa Purchase Agreement) on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Mimosa Purchase Agreement (the “Mimosa Sale”). On July 22, 2023, the parties to the Mimosa Purchase Agreement entered into Amendment No. 1 to Stock Purchase Agreement to amend the Mimosa Purchase Agreement to extend the Termination Date (as defined in the Mimosa Purchase Agreement), which is the date that the Mimosa Purchase Agreement may be terminated by either the Buyer or the Seller, by giving written notice of such termination to the other party, if the closing shall not have occurred on or prior to such date, to August 15, 2023. We anticipate that the closing will occur in August 2023.
The accounting requirements for reporting the Mimosa business as held for sale were met, however, the requirements for discontinued operations were not met. Accordingly, the consolidated financial statements and notes to the consolidated financial statements reflect the assets and liabilities of the Mimosa business as held for sale for the periods presented. (See Note 7).
The entire disclosure for the basis of accounting, or basis of presentation, used to prepare the financial statements (for example, US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, Other Comprehensive Basis of Accounting, IFRS).
