|Business Combination [Abstract]|
Note 4 – Business Combination
In January 2018, the Former Parent sold its 18.2% ownership interest in Esports Arena, LLC ("ESA"), to Allied Esports. Simultaneously, Allied Esports paid cash of $1,337,454 to purchase an additional 64.2% interest in ESA, such that Allied Esports owned an aggregate 82.4% controlling interest in Esports Arena. The acquisition was considered a business combination as the assets and the intangible assets acquired represent an integrated set of inputs and processes.
Allied Esports recognized goodwill of $4,337,660, arising from the acquisition, which is due mainly to the strategic nature of the Esports Arena acquisition. The goodwill acquired is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes. The following table summarizes the fair value of the assets acquired and the liabilities recognized at the acquisition date:
Allied Esports identified the following intangible assets that meet the criteria for separate recognition apart from the goodwill for financial reporting purposes:
Deconsolidation of ESA
In January 2018, Allied Esports entered into a contribution agreement with ESA (the "Contribution Agreement"), whereby Allied Esports committed to contribute $40 million to ESA for the acquisition, construction and development of up to 12 new arenas through January 31, 2020 ("Funding").
Pursuant to the terms of the Contribution Agreement, in the event that Allied Esports failed to contribute the minimum funding commitments noted above, Allied Esports would be required to convey a portion of its membership interests in ESA to the minority investors of ESA. Effective August 1, 2018, Allied Esports entered into an amendment to the agreement with the non-controlling interest members of ESA (who are not related parties to Allied Esports) to reduce Allied Esports's ongoing contribution requirements, and accordingly, conveyed a majority of its membership interests in ESA to the minority investors, and only retained a 25% non-voting interest in ESA. Additionally, as part of the amendment, Allied Esports reduced its funding commitment to $1,803,126. As of August 1, 2018, Allied Esports derecognized the assets, liabilities and equity of ESA since Allied Esports no longer had a controlling interest in ESA. See Note 6 – Other Assets for additional details. The deconsolidation of ESA is not considered a discontinued operation, because deconsolidation of ESA does not meet the criteria for discontinued operations under ASC 205-20 "Presentation of Financial Statements, Discontinued Operations".
