Acquisition, description     On April 23, 2019, the Company filed a post-effective amendment No. 2 ("POS AM No.2") with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), to extend the public offering to attempt to raise the then remaining $16.44 million of the originally registered public offering amount, as well as the $9 million over-subscription option amount (see Note 11). On May 17, 2019, the Company filed a post-effective amendment No. 3 with the SEC to further amend POS AM No. 2 and which was declared effective by the SEC on May 23, 2019. Furthermore, two of the Company's current shareholders (the "Lenders") each committed to provide to the Company a $10 million bridge loan (together, the "Loans") for an aggregate principal amount of $20 million, to bridge the Company's cash flow needs prior to its obtaining a mortgage loan to be secured by a parcel of land (the "Land") the Company intends to purchase in Taiwan. The Lenders also agreed to an earlier closing of up to 25% of the principal amounts of the Loans upon the Company's request prior to the time that title to the Land is vested in the Company's subsidiary, Aerkomm Taiwan, to pay the outstanding payable to the Company's vendors. On June 27, 2019, the Company closed an additional $6.46 million of fund raising from the public offering. With the $9.98 million to be raised in the remainder of the Company's ongoing public offering and the $20 million in Loans committed by the Lenders, the Company believes its working capital will be adequate to sustain its operations for the next twelve months. On February 13, 2017, Aerkomm entered into a share exchange agreement ("Exchange Agreement") with Aircom and its shareholders, pursuant to which Aerkomm acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Aircom in exchange for approximately 99.7% of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Aerkomm (or 87.81% on a fully-diluted basis). As a result of the share exchange, Aircom became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aerkomm, and the former shareholders of Aircom became the holders of approximately 99.7% of Aerkomm's issued and outstanding capital stock.
