Exhibit 99.1

 

UNAUDITED PRO FORMA CONDENSED COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Description of the Transaction

 

On May 13, 2022, 22nd Century Group, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Reorganization and Acquisition Agreement (the “Reorganization Agreement”) with GVB Biopharma (“GVB”). Under the terms of the Reorganization Agreement, the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of GVB’s business dedicated to hemp-based cannabinoid extraction, refinement, contract manufacturing and product development (the “Transaction”).

 

The aggregate consideration for the Transaction consisted of (i) the assumption of approximately $4.6 million of debt, (ii) the direct payment of certain third party transaction costs incurred by GVB in connection with the Transaction totaling approximately $1.7 million and (iii) the issuance to GVB of approximately 32,900,000 unregistered shares of common stock of the Company (the “Shares”), for total consideration of $53.4 million. The Shares are subject to a lock-up and restrictions on transfer for at least six months following closing and thereafter, one-third of the Shares will be released from the lock-up after six months, one-third will be released from the lock-up after nine months and the remainder will be released after one year.

 

The Transaction was accounted for by applying the guidance under Accounting Standards Codification 805, Business Combinations (ASC 805). In accordance with ASC 805, the acquired assets and liabilities were recorded by the Company at estimated fair values as of May 13, 2022, the date the acquisition was completed. The following unaudited pro forma combined financial information and notes present the pro forma impact of the GVB acquisition on the Company’s historical results of operations for the six month period ended June 30, 2022. The unaudited pro forma combined financial information has been prepared in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X. The pro forma adjustments are based on the best available information and certain estimates and assumptions. The acquisition method of accounting is dependent upon certain valuations and other procedures that have not been completed; therefore, there is not sufficient information to determine the final measurement.

 

The unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information is presented for informational purposes only and should not be considered indicative of actual results of operations that would have been achieved had the acquisition of GVB been consummated on the dates indicated, and do not purport to be indicative of the financial condition or results of operations as of any future date or for any future period. Our actual financial condition and results of operations may differ significantly from the pro forma amounts reflected herein due to a variety of factors.

 

Management believes that the assumptions provide a reasonable basis for presenting the significant effects of the transaction accounting adjustments, as contemplated, and the pro forma adjustments give appropriate effect to those assumptions. The pro forma adjustments are preliminary and have been made solely for the purpose of providing unaudited pro forma combined financial data. Differences between these preliminary estimates and the final purchase accounting will occur during 2022 and these differences could have a material impact on the accompanying unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements and the combined Company’s future results of operations and financial position.
