DILUTION, page 11


Dilution means a reduction in value, control, or earnings of the shares the investor owns.


Immediate dilution


An early-stage company typically sells its shares (or grants options over its shares) to its founders and early employees at a very low cash cost, because they are, in effect, putting their “sweat equity” into the company. Occasionally, strategic partners are also interested in investing at an early stage. When the company seeks cash investments from outside investors, like you, the new investors typically pay a much larger sum for their shares than the founders, early employees, or investors from prior financings, which means that the cash value of your stake is diluted because each share of the same type is worth the same amount, and you paid more for your shares than earlier investors did for theirs. Dilution may also be caused by pricing securities at a value higher than book value or expenses incurred in the Offering.


The following table demonstrates the price that new investors are paying for their shares of Common Stock with the effective cash price paid by existing stockholders, giving effect to the Stock Split, full conversion of all outstanding stock options and outstanding convertible notes and assuming that the shares in this offering are sold at $10.00 and $11.50 per share. The table presents shares and pricing as issued and reflects all transactions since inception, which gives investors a better picture of what they will pay for their investment compared to the company’s insiders than just including such transactions for the last 12 months, which is what the Commission requires. The share numbers and amounts in this table assume the conversion of all issued options into shares of Common Stock at weighted average exercise price. The dilution disclosures contained in this section are based upon the instruments issued and outstanding as of December 31, 2022.

Future dilution


Another important way of looking at dilution is the dilution that happens due to future actions by the company. The investor’s stake in a company could be diluted due to the company issuing additional shares. In other words, when the company issues more shares, the percentage of the company that you own will go down, even though the value of the company may go up. You will own a smaller piece of a larger company. This increase in number of shares outstanding could result from a stock offering (such as an initial public offering, another crowdfunding round, a venture capital round, angel investment), employees exercising stock options, or by conversion of certain instruments (e.g., convertible bonds, preferred shares or warrants) into stock.


If the company decides to issue more shares, an investor could experience value dilution, with each share being worth less than before, and control dilution, with the total percentage an investor owns being less than before. There may also be earnings dilution, with a reduction in the amount earned per share (though this typically occurs only if the company offers dividends, and most companies are unlikely to offer dividends, preferring to invest any earnings into the company).


The type of dilution that hurts early-stage investors most occurs when the company sells more shares in a “down round,” meaning at a lower valuation than in earlier offerings. An example of how this might occur is as follows (numbers are for illustrative purposes only):


  · In June 2022 Jane invests $20,000 for shares that represent 2% of a company valued at $1 million.
  · In December the company is doing very well and sells $5 million in shares to venture capitalists on a valuation (before the new investment) of $10 million. Jane now owns only 1.3% of the company but her stake is worth $200,000.
  · In June 2023 the company has run into serious problems and in order to stay afloat it raises $1 million at a valuation of only $2 million (the “down round”). Jane now owns only 0.89% of the company and her stake is worth only $26,660.


This type of dilution might also happen upon conversion of convertible notes into shares. Typically, the terms of convertible notes issued by early-stage companies provide that in the event of another round of financing, the holders of the convertible notes get to convert their notes into equity at a “discount” to the price paid by the new investors, i.e., they get more shares than the new investors would for the same price. Additionally, convertible notes may have a “price cap” on the conversion price, which effectively acts as a share price ceiling. Either way, the holders of the convertible notes get more shares for their money than new investors. In the event that the financing is a “down round” the holders of the convertible notes will dilute existing equity holders, and even more than the new investors do, because they get more shares for their money. Investors should pay careful attention to convertible notes that the company may issue in the future, and the terms of those notes.


If you are making an investment expecting to own a certain percentage of the company or expecting each share to hold a certain amount of value, it’s important to realize how the value of those shares can decrease by actions taken by the company. Dilution can make drastic changes to the value of each share, ownership percentage, voting control, and earnings per share.








The net proceeds of a fully subscribed offering to the issuer, after total offering expenses, commissions and sales by selling stockholders, will be approximately $ 22.24 million.


The Company has raised over $5 million in gross proceeds in this offering, and it intends to use up to 6.67% of the gross proceeds, as further specified below, to buy back shares from certain long-time holders of Preferred and Common Stock as well as stock option and restricted stockholders (“Buyback Stockholders”). The amount reserved for the buyback will be capped and not exceed $1.65 million, which is 6.67% of the gross proceeds to the Company in a fully subscribed offering. The Buyback Stockholders will not include any executive officers or directors of the Company. The buyback will occur after the final closing of this Regulation A offering. The Company, solely at its discretion, will determine how and to whom the buy back is offered. The buyback of shares is subject to mutual agreement between the Company and each selling stockholder. If the Company is not able to enact the buy back within 24 months of the final Reg A closing, any unused proceeds allocated for such purpose will be used to support the Company technology development and operations.


The following table breaks down the use of proceeds into different categories under various funding scenarios. For purposes of this table, the Company has assumed that it will pay the maximum amount of fees to DealMaker Securities, LLC and its affiliates as set forth in the fee table in “Plan of Distribution and Selling Securityholders – Other Terms.” The Company has further assumed that the Offering will be open for 12 months, which impacts certain of its other offering expenses.

The Company reserves the right to change the above use of proceeds if management believes doing so is in the best interests of the Company.

Subscription Procedures


After the Offering Statement has been qualified by the Commission, the Company will accept tenders of funds to purchase the Common Stock. The Company may close on investments on a “rolling” basis (so not all investors will receive their shares on the same date). Investors may subscribe by tendering funds via wire, credit or debit card, or ACH only, and checks will not be accepted. Investors will subscribe via the Company’s website and investor funds will be processed via DealMaker’s integrated payment solutions. Funds will be held in the Company’s payment processor account until the Broker has reviewed the proposed subscription, and the Company has accepted the subscription. Funds released to the Company’s bank account will be net funds (investment less payment for processing fees and a holdback equivalent to 5% for 90 days).


The Company will be responsible for payment processing fees. Upon each closing, funds tendered by investors will be made available to the Company and the selling stockholders for their use.


In order to invest, you will be required to subscribe to the offering via the Company’s website integrating DealMaker’s technology and agree to the terms of the offering, Subscription Agreement, and any other relevant exhibit attached thereto.


Investors will be required to complete a subscription agreement in order to invest. The subscription agreement includes a representation by the investor to the effect that, if the investor is not an “accredited investor” as defined under securities law, the investor is investing an amount that does not exceed the greater of 10% of his or her annual income or 10% of their net worth (excluding the investor’s principal residence).


Any potential investor will have ample time to review the subscription agreement, along with their counsel, prior to making any final investment decision. Broker will review all subscription agreements completed by the investor. After Broker has completed its review of a subscription agreement for an investment in the Company, and the Company has elected to accept the investor into the offering, the funds may be released to the Company.


The Company maintains the right to accept or reject subscriptions in whole or in part, for any reason or for no reason, including, but not limited to, in the event that an investor fails to provide all necessary information, even after further requests from the Company, in the event an investor fails to provide requested follow up information to complete background checks or fails background checks, and in the event the Company receives oversubscriptions in excess of the maximum offering amount.


In the interest of allowing interested investors as much time as possible to complete the paperwork associated with a subscription, the Company has not set a maximum period of time to decide whether to accept or reject a subscription. If a subscription is rejected, funds will not be accepted by wire transfer or ACH, and payments made by debit card or credit card will be returned to subscribers within 30 days of such rejection without deduction or interest.

Provisions of Note in Our Subscription Agreement


Restrictions on Transfer


The subscription agreement contains a “market stand-off” provision in the event of a proposed public offering. During the period, not to exceed 180 days, commencing on the effective date of a registration statement relating to the initial public offering IPO and ending on the date specified by the Company and the managing underwriter of the IPO, investors agree not to transfer any shares of Common Stock, or other securities of the Company held by the investor, or securities convertible or exercisable or exchangeable for Common Stock without the prior written consent of the managing underwriter. Investors agree to execute any agreements as may be reasonably requested by the underwriters of the IPO to affect the market stand-off.




The subscription agreement grants an irrevocable proxy to the Company’s CEO to (i) vote all securities held of record by the investor (including any shares of the Company’s capital stock that the investor may acquire in the future), (ii) give and receive notices and communications, (iii) execute any written consent, instrument or document that the CEO determines is necessary or appropriate at the CEO’s complete discretion, and (iv) take all actions necessary or appropriate in the judgment of the CEO for the accomplishment of the foregoing. The proxy will survive the death, incompetency and disability of an individual investor and, if an investor is an entity, will survive the merger or reorganization of the investor or any other entity holding the shares of Common Stock. The proxy will also be binding upon the heirs, estate, executors, personal representatives, successors and assigns of an investor (including any transferee of the investor). Any transferee of the investors party to the subscription agreement must agree to be bound by the terms of the proxy. The proxy will terminate upon the closing of a firm-commitment underwritten public offering pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the offer and sale of Common Stock or the effectiveness of a registration statement under the Exchange Act covering the Common Stock.


Forum Selection Provisions.


The subscription agreement provides that the Court of Chancery in the State of Delaware is the exclusive forum for all actions or proceedings relating to the subscription agreement. However, this exclusive forum provision does not apply to actions arising under the federal securities laws.








Inspection Rights


The subscription agreement provides a waiver for inspection rights granted under Delaware law. Delaware law specifies that stockholders have the right to inspect and to make copies and extracts from, the Company’s stock ledger, a list of its stockholders, and its other books and records, and the books and records of subsidiaries of the Company, if any.  Delaware law specifies the circumstances and manner that these rights can be exercised, including requiring that the stockholder must provide under oath a proper purpose for the exercises of these rights. This waiver will be in effect until the initial sale of the Company's securities in any future IPO.


Selling Stockholders


Certain stockholders of the Company intend to sell up to 750,000 shares of Common Stock in this offering, plus up to 83,480 Bonus Shares. As of July 12, 2023, the selling stockholders have sold 265,452 shares of Common Stock and received $2,654,520 in gross proceeds. At a price to public of $11.50 per share, the selling stockholder will receive up to an additional $5,572,302 in gross proceeds in a fully subscribed offering. The gross proceeds raised in this offering will be split as follows: 25% to the selling stockholders (on a pro-rata basis) and 75% to the Company.


Selling stockholders will participate on a pro rata basis, which means that a stockholder will be able to sell its Pro Rata Portion of the shares that the stockholder is offering (as set forth in the table below) of the number of securities being issued to investors. For example, if the Company holds a closing for $1 million in gross proceeds, the Company will issue shares and receive gross proceeds of $750,000 while each of the selling stockholders will receive their Pro Rata Portion of the remaining $250,000 in gross proceeds and will transfer their shares to investors in this offering. Selling stockholders will not offer fractional shares and the shares represented by a stockholder’s Pro Rata Portion will be determined by rounding down to the nearest whole share.


After qualification of the Offering Statement, the selling stockholders will enter into an irrevocable power of attorney (“POA”) with the Company and the CEO, as attorney-in-fact, in which they direct the Company and the attorney-in-fact to take the actions necessary in connection with the offering and sale of their shares. A form of the POA is filed as an exhibit to the Offering Statement of which this Offering Circular forms a part. Selling stockholders who hold shares of the Company’s Series Seed-1 Preferred Stock will convert their shares into shares of Common Stock immediately before participating in any closing. Selling stockholders who hold vested options for the purchase of Common Stock will exercise their options and pay for their shares before participating in any closing.
