On October 16, 2013, the Merger provided for up to an additional $14,100,000 of payments to the former holders of ONE Group membership interests (the "TOG Members") and to a liquidating trust (the "Liquidating Trust") established for the benefit of the TOG Members and the holders of warrants to acquire membership interests of ONE Group (the "TOG Warrant Owners") based on a formula as described in the Merger Agreement and which is contingent upon the exercise of outstanding Company warrants to purchase 5,750,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $5.00 per share (the “Parent Warrants”). The Company is required to make any payments on a monthly basis. Additionally, certain ONE Group employees are entitled to receive a contingent sign-on bonus of an aggregate of approximately $900,000 upon the exercise of the Parent Warrants. Any Parent Warrants that are unexercised will expire on the date that is the earlier of (i) February 27, 2016 or (ii) the forty-fifth (45th) day following the date that the Company’s Common Stock closes at or above $6.25 per share for 20 out of 30 trading days commencing on February 27, 2014.
The Company estimates the fair value of the derivative liability using the Monte Carlo method, which is comprised of the $14,100,000 in payments and the $900,000 in contingent sign-on bonus for a total of $15,000,000. The fair value of the derivative liability was initially measured on October 16, 2013 and is re-measured at the end of every reporting period with the change in value over the period reported in the statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss) as a derivative income or loss. In applying the Monte Carlo method, the Company uses the following key inputs and assumptions; the stock price on the valuation date, the exercise price of the warrants of $5.00, the trigger price of $6.25, the expected volatility which is based on an analysis of comparable companies historical stock price volatilities for a period comparable to the term of the warrants, the expected months until effective registration statement, the term based on the period from the valuation date until the two-year period following the expected date of the effective registration, the risk-free rate based on the rate of US treasury securities with the same term and the discount rate based on the aggregate of the expected short-term margin and the risk-free rate.
The following tables summarize the inputs and assumptions used in valuing derivative liabilities:
