CAUTIONARY NOTE ABOUT FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

The information contained in this Report includes some statements that are not purely historical and that are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and as such, may involve risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements relate to, among other things, expectations of the business environment in which we operate, perceived opportunities in the market and statements regarding our mission and vision. In addition, any statements that refer to projections, forecasts or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements. You can generally identify forward-looking statements as statements containing the words “anticipates,” “believes,” “continue,” “could,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “may,” “might,” “plans,” “possible,” “potential,” “predicts,” “projects,” “seeks,” “should,” “will,” “would” and similar expressions, or the negatives of such terms, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking.

 

Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained herein are based on various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions. Our expectations, beliefs and forward-looking statements are expressed in good faith on the basis of management’s views and assumptions as of the time the statements are made, but there can be no assurance that management’s expectations, beliefs or projections will result or be achieved or accomplished.

 

In addition to other factors and matters discussed elsewhere herein, the following are important factors that, in our view, could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements: technological advances, impact of competition, dependence on key personnel and the need to attract new management, effectiveness of cost and marketing efforts, acceptances of products, ability to expand markets and the availability of capital or other funding on terms satisfactory to us. We disclaim any obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof.

PART I

 

Item 1. Description of Business.

 

Background

 

Forge Innovation Development Corp., or the “Company”, was initially incorporated in the State of Nevada on January 15, 2016 under the name of You-Go enterprises, LLC (the “Company Predecessor”). On November 3, 2016, the Company filed an amendment to its Articles of Incorporation in the State of Nevada to change the Company’s name to Forge Innovation Development Corp. Our principle executive office is located at 6280 Mission Blvd Unit 205,Jurupa Valley, CA 92509. Tel : 626-986-4566. The Company’s main business is focus on real estate development, land purchasing and selling and property management.

 

On August 17, 2020, the Company established a wholly owned subsidiary, Forge Network Inc, in the State of California. Forge Network Inc is engaged in online retail under the website: http://www.ez2go.us. The website has been formally launched in January 2021.

 

Overview

 

The Company’s primary objective is commercial and residential land development, including, to a lesser extent, the possible purchase and sale of real estate, targeting properties primarily in Southern California. We also intend to manage properties we own and properties owned by unaffiliated third parties. Our activities will include securing acquisition rights to properties, obtaining zoning and other entitlements for the properties, securing financing for purchase of the properties, improving the properties’ infrastructure and amenities and selling the properties to homeowner and commercial owners for restaurants, offices and small businesses. Our first property acquisition was 29 acres in the city of Desert Hot Springs in Southern California. Due to problems with permits and adjacent landowners, rather than get involved in protracted negotiations, the Company sold the property to an independent third party for a profit.

 

On August 1, 2017, the Company entered into a property management agreement with Bloomage Beverly Hills Investment Inc. Pursuant to the agreement, the Company provided property management services for Bloomage Beverly Hills Investment Inc. in exchange for the compensation of $3,000 per month. During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company recognized service revenue in the amount of $36,000.

 

Business Strategy

 

The Company’s business strategy includes the following three main segments of the real estate business:

 

1. We intend to acquire and develop land for residential and commercial development.
2. We also, to a lesser extent, intend to develop a diversified real estate portfolio by investing in residential real estate, including single-family housing, condos and town-homes and commercial properties, including strip-malls and small office buildings.
3. We intend to provide property management for our own properties and for properties owned by non-affiliated third parties.

 

Property Development

 

The Company primary business is to acquire land and develop and sell fully constructed homes and commercial property such as stores, offices, private schools, etc., to non-affiliated third parties. Our first property acquisition was 29 acres of vacant land in the city of Desert Hot Springs in Southern California. Our original plan was to build various commercial buildings on the parcels, including stores and restaurants. However, due to problems with permits and adjacent landowners that would lead to lengthy negotiations and possibly additional costs, the Company sold the property in March 2017, to a non-affiliated third party for a profit.

 

Our principal activities are securing acquisition rights to properties, obtaining zoning and other entitlements for the properties, securing financing for the purchase of the properties, improving the properties’ infrastructure and amenities, and selling properties to third parties. Currently all of our property development activities are centered in the Southern California area.

 

Investing in Development Projects

 

The Company intends to invest a small portion of its funds and to utilize funds pooled from investors to directly invest in income-yielding properties. The Company will concentrate on investing in properties with long-term leases.

 

We rely on our management’s expertise in identifying residential and commercial real estate assets within our stated target objectives. Our Management makes investment decisions based on various factors, including, relative value, expected risk-adjusted returns, current and projected credit fundamentals, current and projected macroeconomic considerations, current and projected supply and demand, credit and market risk concentration limits, liquidity, cost of financing and financing availability, as well as maintaining our exemption from registration under the 1940 Act.

 

1
 

 

Our targeted asset classes and the principal investments we have made and expect to make in each are as follows:

 

Asset Class   Principal Investments
Residential Property   Single family attached, Single Family detached, multi-unit, condominiums, townhomes, etc.
       
Partially completed real estate developments, residential, commercial, retail.   Acquisition and sale of vacant land
       
REO Tape Transactions   Bulk or block acquisitions of single family detached residential units or homes.

 

Our primary business strategy is to seek out and secure real estate properties that may have been formerly subjected to distressed financing terms as a consequence of recent economic factors. Our focus is on residential, single-family detached homes throughout Southern California made available individually or bulk transfer from various private parties or financial institutions seeking to liquidate non-performing assets.

 

Another business strategy is designed to generate a rate of return by acquiring distressed properties (individually or in bulk transaction(s)) for investment purposes and eventual resale. We believe there is a significant market opportunity to acquire discounted real estate assets or in some instances, to lend to or invest with real estate developers and property owners or otherwise participate in real estate related investments where non-traditional financing sources are not available. The current credit crisis and economic environment and the strict underwriting standards and length of time required by traditional sources including banking institutions are often prohibitive.

 

Property Management

 

In many cases we will manage our own properties and market our property management service to others. Property management involves most of the following duties

 

  Establishes rental rate by surveying local rental rates; calculating overhead costs, depreciation, taxes, and profit goals.
     
  Attracts tenants by advertising vacancies; obtaining referrals from current tenants; explaining advantages of location and services; showing units.
     
  Contracts with tenants by negotiating leases; collecting security deposit.
     
  Accomplishes financial objectives by collecting rents; paying bills; forecasting requirements; preparing an annual budget; scheduling expenditures; analyzing variances; initiating corrective action.
     
  Maintains property by investigating and resolving tenant complaints; enforcing rules of occupancy; inspecting vacant units and completing repairs; planning renovations; contracting with landscaping and snow removal services.
     
  Maintains building systems by contracting for maintenance services; supervising repairs.
     
  Secures property by contracting with security patrol service; installing and maintaining security devices; establishing and enforcing precautionary policies and procedures; responding to emergencies.
     
  Enforces occupancy policies and procedures by confronting violators.
     
  Prepares reports by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing data and trends.

 

We also intend to provide the following special services to our third part owners:

 

  Legal Services

 

  Eviction Coordination
  Personal Property Management
  Property Inspections

 

  Closing — Title Services

 

  Title Closing Documents and Preparation
  Escrow and Closing Coordination
  HUD Reviews and Analysis

Sales and Marketing

 

We intend to market our properties through real estate brokers and agents coordinated by company marketing personnel. Our marketing efforts will target both international and local buyers and builders.

 

Competition

 

We believe there are only limited barriers to entry in our business. Current and future competitors may have more resources than we have. Our projects face competition generally from REITs, institutional pension plans and other public and private real estate companies and private real estate investors for the acquisition of properties and for raising capital. In transaction services, we face competition with other real estate firms in the acquisition and disposition of properties, and we also compete with other sponsors of real estate for investors to provide the capital to allow us to make these investments. We also compete against other real estate companies who may be chosen by a broker-dealer as an investment platform instead of us. In management services, we compete with other properties for viable investors for properties. We also believe that our broker dealers compete, or will compete, with institutions that provide or arrange for other types of financing through private or public offerings of equity or debt and from traditional bank financings.

 

Real estate development is a highly competitive business. We compete with numerous developers, builders and others for the acquisition of property. As we attempt to expand our operations we will certainly be competing with other business ranging from large multinational corporations to small startup business such as ourselves. Many of our competitors may have longer operating histories, better brand recognition and greater financial resources than we do. To successfully compete in our industry, we will need to:

 

  Ensure that investments in our projects are affordable;
     
  That we only invest in properties in well-priced locations;
     
  That our investment strategy is simple to understand; and
     
  That we provide outstanding customer service and rigid integrity in our business dealings.

 

However, there can be no assurance that even if we do these things we will be able to compete effectively with the other companies in our industry. We believe we have the required management expertise in sourcing properties with good development potential and affordable price.

 

We are committed to work and communicate with our investors and sales consultants to identify their goals and needs which will make it easier to continually provide them with the best products and services.

 

Government Regulations

 

Real Property Development

 

Land development permits and approvals are required to develop real property. These permits and approvals will vary depending on the land that is being developed.

 

The commercial and residential real estate development industry is subject to substantial environmental, building, construction, zoning and real estate regulations that are imposed by various federal, state and local authorities. In developing a community, we must obtain the approval of numerous government agencies regarding such matters as permitted land uses, housing density, the installation of utility services (such as water, sewer, gas, electric, telephone and cable television) and the dedication of acreage for open space, parks, schools and other community purposes. Regulations affect commercial building and homebuilding by specifying, among other things, the type and quality of building materials that must be used, certain aspects of land use and building design and the manner in which homebuilders may conduct their sales, operations, and overall relationships with potential renters and buyers. Furthermore, changes in prevailing local circumstances or applicable laws may require additional approvals, or modifications of approvals previously obtained. These permits and approvals will vary depending on the land that is being developed.

Timing of the initiation and completion of development projects depends upon receipt of necessary authorizations and approvals. Because of the provisional nature of these approvals and the concerns of various environmental and public interest groups, the approval process can be delayed by withdrawals or modifications of preliminary approvals and by litigation and appeals challenging development rights. Our ability to develop projects could be delayed or prevented due to litigation challenging previously obtained governmental approvals. We also may be subject to periodic delays or may be precluded entirely from developing in certain communities due to building moratoriums or “slow-growth” or “no-growth” initiatives that could be implemented in the future. Such delays could adversely affect our ability to complete our projects, significantly increase the costs of doing so or drive potential customers to purchase competitors’ products.

 

Management Services

 

We and our brokers, salespersons and, in some instances, property managers are regulated by the states in which we do business. These regulations may include licensing procedures, prescribed professional responsibilities and anti-fraud provisions. Our activities are also subject to various local, state, national and international jurisdictions’ fair advertising, trade, housing and real estate settlement laws and regulations and are affected by laws and regulations relating to real estate and real estate finance and development.

 

Environmental Compliance

 

Federal, state and local laws and regulations impose environmental zoning restrictions, use controls, disclosure obligations and other restrictions that impact the management, development, use or sale of real estate. Such laws and regulations tend to discourage sales and leasing activities with respect to some properties. If transactions in which we are involved are delayed or abandoned as a result of these restrictions, our business could be adversely affected. In addition, a failure by us to disclose environmental concerns to potential investors or third-party buyers of the developed property may subject our company to liability and may adversely impact our business or cause us to incur costs for cleanup of hazardous substances or wastes or other environmental liabilities.

 

Various environmental laws and regulations also can impose liability for the costs of investigating or remediating hazardous or toxic substances at sites currently or formerly owned or operated by a party, or at off-site locations to which such party sent wastes for disposal. As a property manager, we could be held liable as an operator for any such contamination; even if the original activity was legal and we had no knowledge of, or did not cause, the release or contamination. Further, because liability under some of these laws is joint and several, we could be held responsible for more than our share, or even all, of the costs for such contaminated site if the other responsible parties are unable to pay. Similarly, we are generally obliged, under the debt financing arrangements on the properties owned by us, to provide an indemnity to the lenders for environmental liabilities and to remediate any environmental problems that might arise. Insurance for these matters may not always be available, or sufficient to cover our losses.

 

Employees

 

Currently the Company has two employees other than its President/CEO/Secretary who devotes approximately 100% of his time to the business of the Company.

Market Information

 

Market Information

 

There has only been limited trading for the Company’s Common Stock since it began trading on September 25, 2018. There is no assurance that an active trading market will ever develop or, if such a market does develop, that it will continue. The Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted Rule 15g-9 which establishes the definition of a “penny stock,” for purposes relevant to the Company, as any equity security that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share or with an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. For any transaction involving a penny stock, unless exempt, the rules require: (i) that a broker or dealer approve a person’s account for transactions in penny stocks and (ii) the broker or dealer receive from the investor a written agreement to the transaction, setting forth the identity and quantity of the penny stock to be purchased. In order to approve a person’s account for transactions in penny stocks, the broker or dealer must (i) obtain financial information and investment experience and objectives of the person and (ii) make a reasonable determination that the transactions in penny stocks are suitable for that person and that person has sufficient knowledge and experience in financial matters to be capable of evaluating the risks of transactions in penny stocks. The broker or dealer must also deliver, prior to any transaction in a penny stock, a disclosure schedule prepared by the Commission relating to the penny stock market, which, in highlight form, (i) sets forth the basis on which the broker or dealer made the suitability determination and (ii) that the broker or dealer received a signed, written agreement from the investor prior to the transaction. Disclosure also has to be made about the risks of investing in penny stocks in both public offerings and in secondary trading, and about commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative, current quotations for the securities and the rights and remedies available to an investor in cases of fraud in penny stock transactions. Finally, monthly statements have to be sent disclosing recent price information for the penny stock held in the account and information on the limited market in penny stocks.

 

Because of these regulations, broker-dealers may encounter difficulties in their attempt to buy or sell shares of our common stock, which may affect the ability of our shareholders to sell their shares in the secondary market and have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market. These additional sales practice and disclosure requirements could impede the sale of our common stock in the market place. In addition, the liquidity for our common stock may be decreased, with a corresponding decrease in the price of our common stock. Our shares are likely to be subject to such penny stock rules for the foreseeable future.

 

On August 31, 2018, our common stock was approved for quotation on the OTCQB Markets under the symbol “FGNV”. The OTC Markets is a regulated quotation service that displays real-time quotes, last-sale prices, and volume information in over-the-counter equity securities. The OTC Markets securities are traded by a community of market makers that enter quotes and trade reports. This market is limited in comparison to the national stock exchanges and any prices quoted may not be a reliable indication of the value of our common stock.

 

On March 26, 2021, the closing price of our common stock reported on the OTCQB Markets was $1.50 per share. The following table sets forth, for each of the quarterly periods indicated, the high and low sales prices of our common stock, as reported on the OTCQB.

 

Fiscal 2018  Low   High 
September 25, through September 30, 2018  $1.01   $0.25 
October 1 through December 31, 2018  $1.01   $0.21 

 

Fiscal 2019  Low   High 
First Quarter  $1.00   $0.21 
Second Quarter  $1.00   $1.00 
Third Quarter  $2.00   $1.00 
Fourth Quarter  $2.00   $2.00 

 

Fiscal 2020  Low   High

Holders

 

There are approximately 50 holders of the Company’s Common Stock. This figure does not include holders of shares registered in “street name” or persons, partnerships, associates, corporations or other entities identified in security position listings maintained by depositories.

 

Dividends

 

We have not declared any cash dividends on our common stock since our inception and do not anticipate paying any dividends in the foreseeable future. We plan to retain future earnings, if any, for use in our business. Any decisions as to future payments of dividends will depend on our earnings and financial position and such other facts, as the Board of Directors deems relevant.

 

Securities Authorized under Equity Compensation Plans

 

We do not have any equity compensation plans.

 

Shares Available for Future Sale

 

All of the outstanding shares of common stock that are held by our present officers, directors, and affiliate stockholders, which amounts to approximately 81.5% of our issued and outstanding common stock, are “restricted securities” within the meaning of Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. As restricted Shares, these shares may be resold only pursuant to an effective registration statement or under the requirements of Rule 144 or other applicable exemptions from registration under the Act and as required under applicable state securities laws. Rule 144 provides in essence that an affiliate who has held restricted securities for six months may, under certain conditions, sell every three months, in brokerage transactions, a number of shares that does not exceed the greater of 1.0% of a company’s outstanding common stock or the average weekly trading volume during the four calendar weeks prior to the sale. There is no limit on the amount of restricted securities that may be sold by a non-affiliate after the owner has held the restricted securities for a period of six months. A sale under Rule 144 or under any other exemption from the Act, if available, or pursuant to subsequent registration of shares of common stock of present stockholders, may have a depressive effect upon the price of the common stock in any market that may develop.

 

Repurchases of Equity Securities

Reports to Stockholders

 

We are currently subject to the information and reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and will continue to file periodic reports, and other information with the SEC.

Overview

 

Forge Innovation Development Corp. is a development stage company and was incorporated in the State of Nevada in January 2016. The Company’s primary objective is commercial and residential land development, including the purchase and sale of real estate, targeting properties primarily in Southern California. We also intend to manage properties we own, and properties owned by unaffiliated third parties. Our activities will include securing acquisition rights to properties, obtaining zoning and other entitlements for the properties, securing financing for purchase of the properties, improving the properties’ infrastructure and amenities and selling the properties to homeowner and commercial owners for restaurants, offices and small businesses. Our first property acquisition was 29 acres in the city of Desert Hot Springs in Southern California. Due to problems with permits and adjacent landowners, rather than getting involved in protracted negotiations, the Company sold the property to an independent third party for a profit.

The increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to the increase in salary expense. For the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, our net loss was $320,129 and $283,388, respectively. The increase in net loss was mainly due to the increase in general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to last year.

 

Equity and Capital Resources

 

We have incurred losses since inception of our business in 2016 and, as of December 31, 2020, we had an accumulated deficit of $1,269,033. As of December 31, 2020, we had cash of $236,586 and a working capital of $117,751, compared to cash of $366,270 and a working capital of $420,183 on December 31, 2019. The decrease in the working capital was primarily due to cash used to pay for operating expenses.

 

Going Concern Assessment

 

The Company demonstrates adverse conditions that raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These adverse conditions are negative financial trends, specifically cash outflow from operating activities, operating losses, accumulated deficit and other adverse key financial ratios.

 

Management’s plan to alleviate the substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern include attempting to improve its business profitability, its ability to generate sufficient cash flow from its operations and execute the business plan of the Company in order to meet its operating needs on a timely basis. However, there can be no assurance that these plans and arrangements will be sufficient to fund the Company’s ongoing capital expenditures and other requirements.

 

The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event that the Company cannot continue as a going concern.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to stockholders. 

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires making estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. The estimates are based on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis of making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

The critical accounting policies are discussed in further detail in the notes to the audited consolidated financial statements appearing elsewhere in this report. Management believes that the application of these policies on a consistent basis enables us to provide useful and reliable financial information about our operating results and financial condition.

Opinions on the Consolidated financial statements and Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Forge Innovation Development Corp. and Subsidiary as of December 31, 2020 and 2019, and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “consolidated financial statements”).   In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2020 and 2019, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Going Concern Uncertainty

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 3 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and accumulated deficit that raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 3. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Adoption of ASU No. 2016-02

 

As discussed in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company changed its method of accounting for leases in 2019 due to the adoption of Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), and the related amendments.

 

Basis for Opinions

 

These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

Forge Innovation Development Corp. and Subsidiary

 

Notes to the consolidated financial statements

 

Note 1 - Organization and Description of Business

 

Forge Innovation Development Corp. (individually “Forge” and collectively with its subsidiary, the “Company”), was initially incorporated in the State of Nevada on January 15, 2016 under the name of You-Go Enterprises, LLC (the “Company Predecessor”). On November 3, 2016, Forge filed an amendment to its Articles of Incorporation in the State of Nevada to change the Company Predecessor’s name to Forge Innovation Development Corp. Our current principle executive office is located at 6280 Mission Blvd Unit 205, Jurupa Valley, CA 92509. Tel: 626-986-4566. The Company’s main business focuses on real estate development, land purchasing and selling and property management. The Company’s common stock is currently traded on OTCQB under the symbol “FGNV”.

 

On August 17, 2020, the Company established a wholly owned subsidiary, Forge Network Inc, in the State of California. Forge Network Inc is engaged in online retail under the website: http://www.ez2go.us. The website has been formally launched in January 2021.

 

Note 2 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The Company’s consolidated financial statements refer to Forge and its subsidiary. All intercompany transactions and balances were eliminated in consolidation.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

This summary of significant accounting policies is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s consolidated financial statements. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary in order to make the consolidated financial statements not misleading have been included. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. Cash on December 31, 2020 and 2019 were $236,586 and $366,270, representing cash deposited in bank and petty cash.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC 740, “Income Taxes.” Under the asset and liability method of ASC 740, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the consolidated financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period the enactment occurs. A valuation allowance is provided for certain deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that the Company will not realize tax assets through future operations.

 

Basic Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

The Company computes basic and diluted earnings per share amounts in accordance with ASC Topic 260, Earnings per Share. Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the reporting period. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if stock options and other commitments to issue common stock were exercised or equity awards vest resulting in the issuance of common stock that could share in the earnings of the Company.

 

The Company does not have any potentially dilutive instruments as of December 31, 2020 and 2019 and, thus, anti-dilution issues are not applicable.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s balance sheet includes certain financial instruments. The carrying amounts of current assets and current liabilities approximate their fair value because of the relatively short period of time between the origination of these instruments and their expected realization.

 

F-7
 

 

ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy that distinguishes between (1) market participant assumptions developed based on market data obtained from independent sources (observable inputs) and (2) an entity’s own assumptions about market participant assumptions developed based on the best information available in the circumstances (unobservable inputs). The fair value hierarchy consists of three broad levels, which gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:

 

Level 1 - Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities.
     
Level 2 - Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, including quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (e.g., interest rates); and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.
     
Level 3 - Inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable.

 

Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of December 31, 2020 and 2019. The respective carrying value of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments approximated their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments. These financial instruments include cash and cash equivalent and prepaid expense and other current assets.

 

Operating Leases

 

Prior to the adoption of ASC 842 on January 1, 2019:

 

Leases, mainly leases of offices, where substantially all the rewards and risks of ownership of assets remain with the lessor are accounted for as operating leases. Payments made under operating leases are recognized as an expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

Upon and hereafter the adoption of ASC 842 on January 1, 2019:

 

The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception. Operating leases are included in operating lease right-of-use (“ROU”) assets, operating lease liability, and operating lease liability, non-current in the Company’s balance sheets. Please refer to Note 2-Recently adopted accounting pronouncements for the disclosures regarding the Company’s method of adoption of ASC 842 and the impacts of adoption on its consolidated balance sheets, results of operations and cash flows. ROU assets represent the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent the Company’s obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Operating lease ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. As the Company’s leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company used an incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments.

 

Related Parties

 

The Company follows ASC 850, Related Party Disclosures, for the identification of related parties and disclosure of related party transactions.

 

Share-based Compensation

 

ASC 718, “Compensation - Stock Compensation”, prescribes accounting and reporting standards for all share-based payment transactions in which employee services are acquired. Transactions include incurring liabilities, or issuing or offering to issue shares, options, and other equity instruments such as employee stock ownership plans and stock appreciation rights. Share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, are recognized as compensation expense in the consolidated financial statements based on their fair values. That expense is recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide services in exchange for the award, known as the requisite service period (usually the vesting period).

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation issued to non-employees and consultants in accordance with the provisions of ASC 505-50, “Equity - Based Payments to Non-Employees.” Measurement of share-based payment transactions with non-employees is based on the fair value of whichever is more reliably measurable: (a) the goods or services received; or (b) the equity instruments issued. The fair value of the share-based payment transaction is determined at the earlier of performance commitment date or performance completion date.

 

The company had no stock-based compensation plans as of December 31, 2020 and 2019.

 

Property and equipment

 

Property and equipment are carried at cost. Equipment are depreciated on a straight-line basis (after taking into account their respective estimated residual value) over 5 years, the estimated useful lives of the assets. The cost of repairs and maintenance is expensed as incurred; major replacements and improvements are capitalized. When assets are retired or disposed of, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts, and any resulting gains or losses are included in income in the year of disposition. The Company examines the possibility of decreases in the value of fixed assets when events or changes in circumstances reflect the fact that their recorded value may not be recoverable.

 

During the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, the depreciation expense were $9,781and $8,904, respectively.

 

F-8
 

 

Impairment of long-lived assets

 

Long-lived assets are tested for impairment in accordance with ASC 360-10-45 “Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”. The Company periodically evaluates potential impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable. If circumstances require a long-lived asset or asset group be tested for possible impairment, the Company first compares undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by that asset or asset group to its carrying value. If the carrying value of the long-lived asset or asset group is not recoverable on an undiscounted cash flow basis, an impairment is recognized to the extent that the carrying value exceeds its fair value. Fair value is determined through various valuation techniques including discounted cash flow models, quoted market values and third-party independent appraisals, as considered necessary. No impairment of long-lived assets was recognized for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, using the modified retrospective approach, which applies the new standard to contracts that are not completed as of the date of adoption. Under the new standard, revenue is recognized upon transfer of control of promised goods and services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for those goods and services. The Company concluded that the adoption of the new standard requires an adjustment to increase the opening balance of retained earnings in an amount of $ 26,667 since control of real estate was transferred and profit on a real estate sale should be recognized under the new standard.

 

Revenue streams that are scoped into ASU 2014-09 include:

 

Property management services: The Company deals directly with prospects and tenants for the owners of properties, which mainly includes marketing property, collecting rent, handling maintenance, repairing issues and responding to tenant complaints. The Company recognizes revenue as earned on a monthly basis and has concluded this is appropriate under the new standard.

 

Real estate sales: The Company accounts for the sale of real estate assets and any related gain recognition in accordance with the accounting guidance applicable to sales of real estate, which establishes standards for recognition of profit on all real estate sales transactions, other than retail land sales. The Company recognizes the sale, and associated gain or loss from the disposition, provided that the earnings process is complete, and the Company does not have significant continuing involvement. Subsequent to the adoption of the new standard, the Company may recognize a gain on a real estate disposition that previously did not qualify as a sale or for full profit recognition due to the timing of the transfer of control.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, (FASB ASC Topic 326), Financial Instruments – Credit Losses: Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments which amends the current accounting guidance and requires the use of the new forward-looking “expected loss” model, which requires all expected losses to be determined based on historical experience, current conditions and reasonable and supportable forecasts, rather than the “incurred loss” model. This guidance amends the accounting for credit losses for most financial assets and certain other instruments including trade and other receivables, held-to-maturity debt securities, loans and other instruments.

 

In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-10 to postpone the effective date of ASU No. 2016-13 for public business entities eligible to be smaller reporting companies defined by the SEC to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company believes the adoption of ASU No. 2016-13 will not have a material impact on its financial position and results of operations.

 

The management does not believe that other than disclosed above, the recently issued but not yet adopted accounting pronouncements will have a material impact on its financial position results of operations or cash flows.

 

F-9
 

 

Note 3 - Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements were prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of obligations in the normal course of business. However, the Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and incurred losses since inception, resulting in an accumulated deficit of $1,269,033 as of December 31, 2020. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern.

 

In view of these matters, continuation as a going concern is dependent upon several factors, including the availability of debt or equity funding upon terms and conditions acceptable to the Company and ultimately achieving profitable operations. Management believes that the Company’s business plan provides it with an opportunity to continue as a going concern. However, management cannot provide assurance that the Company will meet its objectives and be able to continue in operation.

 

The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the possible inability of Forge Innovation Development Corp. to continue as a going concern.

 

Note 4 - Income Taxes

 

The Company has not recognized an income tax benefit for its operating losses generated based on uncertainties concerning its ability to generate taxable income in future periods. The tax benefit for the period presented is offset by a valuation allowance established against deferred tax assets arising from the net operating losses, the realization of which could not be considered more likely than not. In future periods, tax benefits and related deferred tax assets will be recognized when management considers realization of such amounts to be more likely than not. Due to the change in ownership provisions of the Tax Reform Act of 1986, net operating loss carryforwards for Federal income tax reporting purposes are subject to annual limitations.

Note 8 - Leases

 

The Company has operating lease for its lease’s office space from a third party. We determined if an arrangement is a lease inception of the contract and whether a contract is or contains a lease by determining whether it conveys the right to control the use of identified asset for a period of time. The contract provides us the right to obtain substantially all the economic benefits from the use of the identified asset and the right to direct use of the identified asset, we consider it to be, or contain, a lease.

 

Leases is classified as operating at inception of the lease. Operating leases result in the recognition of ROU assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet. ROU assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term as of the commencement date. Because our leases do not provide an explicit or implicit rate of return, we use our incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at the commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments on an individual lease basis. Our incremental borrowing rate for a lease is the rate of interest we would have to pay on a collateralized basis to borrow an amount equal to the lease payments for the asset under similar term, which is 5.5%. Lease expense for these leases is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

Our leases do not contain any residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants. Leases with a lease term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet and lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The remaining term as of December 31, 2020 is 12 months. We currently have no finance leases.

Note 9 – PPP and SBA Loan

 

On April 15, 2020, the Company got a Promissory Note (the “Note”) in the amount of $19,400 approved from the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP Loan”) through East West Bank (the “Lender”). The PPP is a loan program of U.S. Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) designated to provide a direct incentive for small business to keep their workers on the payroll due to the Covid-19 crisis. The interest rate on this Note is a fixed rate of 1.00% per annum. The Company will pay this loan in one payment of all outstanding principal plus all accrued unpaid interest on that date that is two years after the date of this Note (“Maturity Date”). In addition, the Company will pay regular monthly payments in an amount equal to one month’s accrued interest commencing on that date that is seven months after the date of this Note, with all subsequent interest payments to be due on the same day of each month after that. All interest which accrues during the initial six months of the loan period will be deferred to and payable on the Maturity Date. Unless otherwise agreed or required by applicable law, payments will be applied first to any accrued unpaid interest; then to principal.

 

According to SBA’s PPP description, the PPP loan will be fully forgiven if the funds are used for payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities (due to likely high subscription, at least 75% of the forgiven amount must have been used for payroll). Loan payments will also be deferred for six months. No collateral or personal guarantees are required. Neither the government nor lenders will charge small businesses any fees. Forgiveness is based on the employer maintaining or quickly rehiring employees and maintaining salary levels. Forgiveness will be reduced if full-time headcount declines, or if salaries and wages decrease.

 

The Company received the amount of $19,400 from East West Bank on April 16, 2020. The Company plan to submit its application for the forgiveness of the full amount of the PPP Loan and as such, the Company will not be required to make any payments of principal or interest on the PPP Loan before the date on which the SBA remits the loan forgiveness amount on our loan to our lender (or notifies our lender that no forgiveness amount is allowed). On March 15, 2021, the Company received the letter from East West Bank that our PPP Loan amount of $19,400 has been fully forgiven by SBA on March 10, 2021.

 

On July 14, 2020, the Company entered into a loan agreement with The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), pursuant to which the Company obtain a loan in the amount of $14,000 with the term of 30 years and at the interest rate of 3.75%, payable monthly including principal and interest in the amount $69. The first repayment will be on July 13, 2021. The Company received the loan amount of $14,000 from SBA on July 20, 2020.

On or about September 29, 2020, the Company vacated the premises. On October 22, 2020, PHBC-II filed a lawsuit against the Company and its guarantor, Mr. Liang.

Item 9. Changes In and Disagreements with Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure.

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are designed with an objective of ensuring that information required to be disclosed in our periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, such as this Annual Report on Form 10-K, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Disclosure controls are also designed with an objective of ensuring that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer, in order to allow timely consideration regarding required disclosures.

 

The evaluation of our disclosure controls by our principal executive officer included a review of the controls’ objectives and design, the operation of the controls, and the effect of the controls on the information presented in this Annual Report. Our management, including our Chief Executive Officer, does not expect that disclosure controls can or will prevent or detect all errors and all fraud, if any. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Also, projections of any evaluation of the disclosure controls and procedures to future periods are subject to the risk that the disclosure controls and procedures may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

As of the end of the period covered by this report, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that there were significant deficiency in our internal controls over Financial reporting as of December 31, 2020 and they were therefore not as effective as they could be to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. The significant deficiency in our controls and procedure were lack of evidences for proper approval and review of disbursements. Management does not believe that any of these significant deficiencies materially affected the results and accuracy of its consolidated financial statements. However, in view of this discovery of such weaknesses, management has begun a review to improve them.

 

MANAGEMENT’S ANNUAL REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING.

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the company in accordance with as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act. Our internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the (i) effectiveness and efficiency of operations, (ii) reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of consolidated financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and (iii) compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Our internal controls framework is based on the criteria set forth in the Internal Control - Integrated Framework that was issued in 2013 by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Management identified a lack of segregation of duties.

 

Management’s assessment of the effectiveness of the small business issuer’s internal control over financial reporting is as of the year ended December 31, 2020. We believe that internal controls over financial reporting as set forth above shows material weaknesses and are not effective. We have identified material weaknesses considering the nature and extent of our current operations and any risks or errors in financial reporting under current operations.

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of the company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the SEC that permit the Company to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

 

Subsequent to the end of the period covered by this report, and in light of the weakness described above, management is in the process of designing and implementing improvements in its internal control over financial reporting and we currently plan tom hire an independent third party consultant to assist in identifying and determining the appropriate accounting procedures and controls to implement.
