Note 2. Business Combination

Live Oak Acquisition Corp. (“Live Oak”), was originally incorporated in the State of Delaware on May 24, 2019 as a special purpose acquisition company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, recapitalization, reorganization, or similar business combination with one or more businesses. Live Oak completed its initial public offering in May 2020. On December 29, 2020, Live Oak consummated a business combination (“Business Combination”) with Meredian Holdings Group, Inc. (“Legacy Danimer”) with Legacy Danimer surviving the merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Live Oak. In connection with the Business Combination, Live Oak changed its name to Danimer Scientific, Inc.

On December 29, 2020, we consummated a business combination with Legacy Danimer pursuant to the Merger Agreement. Pursuant to ASC 805, for financial accounting and reporting purposes, Legacy Danimer was deemed the accounting acquirer, we were treated as the accounting acquiree, and the Business Combination was accounted for as a reverse recapitalization. Effectively, the Business Combination was treated as the equivalent of Legacy Danimer issuing stock for the net assets of Live Oak, accompanied by a recapitalization. Under this method of accounting, the historical financial statements of Legacy Danimer are our historical financial statements. The net assets of Live Oak are stated at historical costs, with no goodwill or other intangible assets recorded in accordance with U.S. GAAP and are consolidated with Legacy Danimer’s financial statements on the Closing Date.
