On June 12, 2022, Skillsoft entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), by and among Skillsoft, Skillsoft (US) Corporation (“Seller”), Amber Holding Inc. (“SumTotal”), and Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc. (“Buyer”), pursuant to which, subject to the certain terms and conditions contained therein, Seller agreed to sell, and Buyer agreed to purchase, all of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to one hundred percent (100%) of the outstanding shares of capital stock of SumTotal.
The sale was completed on August 15, 2022. Skillsoft received net proceeds of $180.0 million and reserved $8.0 million for working capital contingency which is subject to customary adjustments as set forth in the Purchase Agreement, including adjustments based on the working capital, cash and indebtedness of SumTotal and its direct and indirect subsidiaries as of the closing date.
In accordance with ASC 810, the Company recorded a gain on sale upon completion of the transaction. The gain was calculated by measuring the difference between the fair value of consideration received less the carrying amount of the assets and liabilities sold. The Company calculated a gain of $53.8 million which is reported as Gain on sale of business in the Statement of Operations. The gain is preliminary and subject to finalization of post-closing adjustments pursuant to the Purchase Agreement.
In connection with the sale, the parties to the Purchase Agreement entered into certain other agreements, including a transition services agreement pursuant to which each of Seller and Buyer agreed to provide the other party with certain transition services for a limited period following the closing.
The Company determined that the sale of SumTotal met the criteria to be classified as discontinued operations, and its assets and liabilities held for sale, as of June 12, 2022. Accordingly, the Company classified the assets and liabilities of the discontinued operations as held for sale in our consolidated balance sheets at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell. Classification for the assets and liabilities in comparative periods retained their previous classification as current or long-term. No losses were recognized upon classification of the discontinued operations assets and liabilities as held for sale. Depreciation and amortization ceased on assets classified as held for sale. The operating results of SumTotal are reported as discontinued operations, for all periods presented, as the disposition reflects a strategic shift that has, or will have, a major effect on our operations and financial results.
The financial results of SumTotal are presented as Income from discontinued operations, net of tax on our condensed consolidated Statement of Operations. The following table presents financial results of SumTotal for all periods presented in our condensed consolidated Statement of Operations (in thousands):
