Section 8 – Other Events


Item 8.01 Other Events

On March 31, 2009, pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated June 13, 2008 (as amended and restated on November 10, 2008 and March 12, 2009, the “Merger Agreement”), Hughes Telematics, Inc. (“Old HTI”), a privately held company, and Polaris Acquisition Corp. (“Polaris”), a publicly held blank check company, consummated the merger (the “Merger”) whereby Old HTI merged with and into a wholly owned direct subsidiary of Polaris with Old HTI as the surviving corporation, and immediately thereafter, Old HTI merged with and into Polaris, with Polaris as the surviving corporation (the “Company”). In connection with the Merger, Polaris changed its name from “Polaris Acquisition Corp.” to “HUGHES Telematics, Inc.”

Notwithstanding the legal form of the transaction, the Merger has been accounted for under the purchase method of accounting as a reverse acquisition, equivalent to a recapitalization, through the issuance of stock by Old HTI for the net monetary assets of Polaris. Accordingly, the historical financial statements of the Company prior to March 31, 2009 are the historical financial statements of Old HTI. The consolidated financial statements of Old HTI have been retroactively restated to reflect the recapitalization of Old HTI with the 77,102,149 shares of Company common stock issued to Old HTI equity holders in connection with the Merger. As a result of this revised presentation, the Company is required to update its previously issued annual financial statements. Such updated financial statements are set forth on Exhibits 99.1 hereto and are incorporated by reference herein.
