The unvested shares of restricted stock were recorded under a deposit liability account awaiting future conversion to common stock when they become vested. On December 21, 2018, the Company repurchased and cancelled an aggregate of 104,413 unvested shares of restricted common stock for a purchase price of $0.0067 per share.


On May 14, 2018, the Company entered into an underwriting agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with Boustead Securities, LLC ("Boustead") in connection with the public offering (the "Offering"), issuance and sale of up to 1,411,782 shares of the Company's common stock on a best efforts basis, with a minimum requirement of 117,647 shares, at the public offering price of $42.50 per share (originally $8.5 per share before the 1-to-5 reverse split), less underwriting discounts, for minimum gross proceeds of $5,000,000 and up to a maximum of $60,000,000. As of December 31, 2018, pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company had issued an aggregate of 1,024,980 shares of common stock (including 19 shares that were added as a result of rounding in connection with the one-for-five reverse split concluded on January 16, 2019) for gross proceeds of $43,560,894, or net proceeds of $39,810,204. On April 23, 2019, the Company filed a post-effective amendment No. 2 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") to extend the Offering to attempt to raise the then remaining $16.44 million of the amount that was originally registered in the Offering, as well as a $9 million over-subscription option amount. On May 17, 2019, the Company filed a post-effective amendment No. 3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") to extend the Offering subsequently and which was declared effective by the SEC on May 23. 2019.

  3) Stock Warrant:


The Company has entered into a service agreement which provides for the issuance of warrants to purchase shares of its common stock to a service provider as payment for services. The warrants allow the service provider to purchase a number of shares of Aerkomm common stock equal to the service fee value divided by 85% of the share price paid by investors for Aerkomm's common stock in the first subsequent qualifying equity financing event, at an exercise price of $0.05 per share. For the six-month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, Aerkomm has issued additional stock warrants exercisable for $0 and $26,667, respectively, in value of Aerkomm common stock to the service provider as payment for additional services. As of June 28, 2019, these warrants are equivalent to 4,891 shares of the Company's common stock. On June 29, 2019, the Company settled with the service provider to cancel all these warrants with $75,000 in three installments payable on July 3, August 1, and September 1, 2019.


In connection with the Underwriting Agreement with Boustead, the Company agreed to issue to Boustead warrants to purchase a number of the Company's shares equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the public offering, which shall be exercisable, in whole or in part, commencing on April 13, 2018 and expiring on the five-year anniversary at an initial exercise price of $53.125 per share, which is equal to 125% of the offering price paid by investors. As of June 30, 2019, the Company has issued warrants to Boustead to purchase 70,621 shares of the Company's stock and the total warrant value is $38,800.  For the six-month period ended June 30, 2019, the Company recorded $159,900 (unaudited) to decrease additional paid-in capital as the adjustment for the issuance costs of these stock warrants.
