Description of Business

Danimer Scientific, Inc., together with its subsidiaries (“Company”, “Danimer”, “we”, “us”, or “our”), is a performance polymer company specializing in bioplastic replacements for traditional petroleum-based plastics. Our common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “DNMR”.

The Company (formerly 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”) pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of October 3, 2020 (as amended by Amendment No. 1, dated as of October 8, 2020, and Amendment No. 2, dated as of December 11, 2020 (collectively “Merger Agreement”), by and among Live Oak, Green Merger Corp. (“Merger Sub.”), and Meredian Holdings Group, Inc. (“Legacy Danimer”). Immediately upon consummation of the Business Combination, Merger Sub. merged with and into 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 August 11, 2021, we closed the acquisition of Novomer, Inc. (integrated into our business as “Danimer Catalytic Technologies”). Our consolidated results include those of Danimer Catalytic Technologies from the acquisition date forward. Refer to Note 2 for further discussion of the acquisition.

Financial Statements

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) and consolidate all assets and liabilities of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. GAAP requires us to make certain estimates and assumptions in recording assets, liabilities, sales and expenses as well as in the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ from those estimates. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated. Certain reclassifications have been made to previously reported amounts to conform to the current presentation. In preparing these condensed consolidated financial statements, we have considered and, where appropriate, included the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operations. The pandemic continues to provide significant challenges to the U.S. and global economies.

Since we do not have any items of other comprehensive income or loss, there is no difference between net loss and comprehensive (loss) income for the three month periods ended March 31, 2022 or 2021, so a separate Statement of Comprehensive Income (Loss) that would otherwise be required is not presented.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

There have been no new accounting pronouncements not yet effective that we believe will have a significant effect, or potential significant effect, on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
