Item 8.01. Other Events.

 

Beijing Yatai Communication Co., Ltd. (China)

 

On November 6, 2020, Aerkomm Inc. (the “Company”) completed the transfer of ownership of Beijing Yatai Communication Co., Ltd. (China) (“Beijing Yitai”) to Aerkomm Taiwan Inc. (“Aerkomm Taiwan”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Formerly, Beijing Yatai was a wholly owned subsidiary of Aircom Telecom LLC (Taiwan), a wholly owned subsidiary of Aircom Pacific, Inc. which, in turn, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

 

A copy of the Company’s organizational chart reflecting this change in corporate structure is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1.

 

Taiwan Land Acquisition

 

On May 1, 2018, the Company and Aerkomm Taiwan entered into a binding memorandum of understanding with Tsai Ming-Yin (the “Seller”) with respect to the acquisition by Aerkomm Taiwan of a parcel of land located in Taiwan (the “Taiwan Land Parcel”). The Taiwan Land Parcel is expected to be used to build a satellite ground station and data center. On July 10, 2018, the Company, Aerkomm Taiwan and the Seller entered into a definitive real estate sales contract regarding this acquisition. Pursuant to the terms of the contract, and subsequent amendments on July 30, 2018, September 4, 2018, November 2, 2018 and January 3, 2019, the Company had paid to the Seller in installments refundable prepayments of $33,850,000 as of December 31, 2018. On July 2, 2019, the Company paid the remaining purchase price balance of $624,462. Under the terms of the real estate sales contract for the Taiwan Land Parcel, these purchase price payments were no longer refundable as of September 30, 2020. On November 10, 2020, the Company entered into a further contract amendment (the “Amendment”) with the Seller to allow for a refund of the full purchase price of the Taiwan Land Parcel if licenses and approvals needed to transfer land title to Aerkomm Taiwan are not granted by July 31, 2020. 

 

A copy of the Amendment is filed herewith in Chinese along with an English translation as Exhibits 99.2 and 99.3, respectively.
