GBT Technologies, Inc.

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

For the Three Months Ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 (Unaudited)

 

Note 1 - Organization and Basis of Presentation

 

Organization and Line of Business

 

GBT Technologies Inc. (formerly Gopher Protocol Inc.) (the “Company”, “GBT”, or “GTCH”) was incorporated on July 22, 2009 under the laws of the State of Nevada. The Company is targeting growing markets such as development of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled networking and tracking technologies, including wireless mesh network technology platform and fixed solutions, development of an intelligent human body vitals device, asset-tracking IoT, and wireless mesh networks. Effective August 5, 2019, the Company changed its name from Gopher Protocol Inc. to GBT Technologies Inc. The Company derived revenues from (i) the provision of IT consulting services; and (ii) from the licensing of its technology. (ii) from selling electronic products through e-commerce platforms.

 

On February 18, 2022 the Company, effective March 1, 2022 entered into a Revenue Sharing Agreement (“RSA”) with Mahaser LTD. (“Mahaser”) pursuant to which the Company shares revenues generated by Mahaser with respect to e-commerce sales through the online retail platform in the United States of America.

 

The unaudited condensed financial statements (“CFS”) are prepared by the Company, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. The information furnished herein reflects all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, which in the opinion of management, are necessary to fairly state the Company’s financial position, the results of its operations, and cash flows for the periods presented.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying CFS were prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

 

Stock Split

 

On October 26, 2021, the Company effectuated a 1 for 50 reverse stock split. The share and per share information has been retroactively restated to reflect this reverse stock split.

 

In July 2, 2022 the Company filed a preliminary information statement to the stockholders of record (the “Record Date”) in connection with certain actions to be taken by the written consent by stockholders holding a majority of the voting stock of the Company, dated as of June 28, 2022.

 

  To amend the Company’s Articles of Incorporation, (the “Articles of Incorporation”) to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of the Company from 2,000,000,000 shares to 10,000,000,000 shares. This action concluded on August 11, 2022:

 

    (i) authorize the Company’s Board of Directors to effect, in its sole discretion, a reverse stock split of the Common Stock in a ratio of up to 1-for-500 (the “Reverse Stock Split”), and (ii) authorize the filing of an amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to implement the Reverse Stock Split and any other action deemed necessary to effectuate the Reverse Stock Split, without further approval or authorization of stockholders, at any time prior to December 31, 2023. This action was not commenced by the Company’s board.

 

Note 2 – Going Concern

 

The accompanying CFS have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has an accumulated deficit of $304,887,630 and has a working capital deficit of $22,715,354 as of March 31, 2023, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate profitable operations in the future and/or obtain the necessary financing to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. Management has plans to seek additional capital through some private placement offerings of debt and equity securities. These plans, if successful, will mitigate the factors which raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These CFS do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from this uncertainty.

Note 3 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of CFS in conformity with U.S. GAAP 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 CFS and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company’s estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected. Significant estimates in the accompanying CFS include valuation of derivatives and valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying CFS include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries; the Company’s 50% owned subsidiaries GBT BitSpeed Corp. (currently inactive) and GBT Tokenize Corp; the Company’s 50% owned subsidiary, Gopher Protocol Costa Rica Sociedad De Responsabilidad Limitada (currently inactive), a wholly owned subsidiary, AltCorp Trading LLC, a Costa Rica company (“AltCorp” currently inactive) and Greenwich International Holdings, a Costa Rica corporation (“Greenwich” currently inactive). All significant intercompany transactions and balances were eliminated.

 

For entities determined to be VIEs, an evaluation is required to determine whether the Company is the primary beneficiary. The Company evaluates its economic interests in the entity specifically determining if the Company has both the power to direct the activities of the VIE that most significantly impact the VIE’s economic performance (“the power”) and the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits that could potentially be significant to the VIE (“the benefits”). When making the determination whether the benefits received from an entity are significant, the Company considers the total economics of the entity, and analyzes whether the Company’s share of the economics is significant. The Company utilizes qualitative factors, and, where applicable, quantitative factors, while performing the analysis.

 

In addition, the Company’s variable interests in Mahaser obligate the Company to absorb deficits and provide it with the right to receive benefits that could potentially be significant to Mahaser. As a result of this analysis, the Company concluded it is the primary beneficiary of Mahaser and therefore consolidates the balance sheets, results of operations and cash flows of Mahaser. The Company performs a qualitative assessment of Mahaser on an ongoing basis to determine if it continues to be the primary beneficiary.

 

Cash Equivalents

 

For the purpose of the statement of cash flows, cash equivalents include time deposits, certificate of deposits, and all highly-liquid debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company did not have any cash equivalents.

 

Marketable Securities

 

The Company accounts for investment securities in accordance with ASC Topic 321, Investments – equity securities. Marketable equity securities are reported at FV based on quotations available on securities exchanges with any unrealized gain or loss being reported as a component of other income (expense) on the statement of operations. The portion of marketable equity security expected to be sold within 12 months of the balance sheet date is reported as a current asset. These publicly traded equity securities are valued using quoted prices and are included in Level 1.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consists of electronic product ready for sale on Amazon.com. It is stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value and all inventories were returned product from online customers. We value our inventory using the weighted average costing method. Our Company’s policy is to include as a part of inventory any freight incurred to ship the product from our contract vendors to our warehouses. Outbound freight costs to our customers are considered period costs and reflected in selling, general and administrative expenses. We regularly review inventory and consider forecasts of future demand, market conditions and product obsolescence.

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company evaluates all of its agreements to determine if such instruments have derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its FV and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the FV reported in the statements of operations. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses a weighted-average Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company’s only derivative financial instrument was an embedded conversion feature associated with convertible notes payable due to certain provisions that allow for a change in the conversion price based on a percentage of the Company’s stock price at the date of conversion.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

For certain of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and short-term debt, the carrying amounts approximate their FV due to their short maturities.

 

FASB ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, requires disclosure of the FV of financial instruments held by the Company. FASB ASC Topic 825, Financial Instruments, defines FV, and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of FV measurement that enhances disclosure requirements for FV measures. The carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheets for receivables and current liabilities each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of their FV because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest. The three levels of valuation hierarchy are defined as follows:

 

  Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
     
  Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets in inactive markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.
     
  Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology use one or more unobservable inputs which are significant to the FV measurement.

 

The Company analyzes all financial instruments with features of both liabilities and equity under FASB ASC Topic 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity, and FASB ASC Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging.

 

For certain financial instruments, the carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for cash and current liabilities, including convertible notes payable, each qualify as a financial instrument, and are a reasonable estimate of their FV because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest.

 

The Company uses Level 2 inputs for its valuation methodology for derivative liabilities as their FV were determined by using the Black-Scholes-Merton pricing model based on various assumptions. The Company’s derivative liabilities are adjusted to reflect FV at each period end, with any increase or decrease in the FV being recorded in results of operations as adjustments to FV of derivatives.

Revenue Recognition

 

Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“Topic 606”), became effective for the Company on January 1, 2018. The Company’s revenue recognition disclosure reflects its updated accounting policies that are affected by this new standard. The Company applied the “modified retrospective” transition method for open contracts for the implementation of Topic 606. The Company had no significant post-delivery obligations, this new standard did not result in a material recognition of revenue on the Company’s accompanying CFS for the cumulative impact of applying this new standard. The Company made no adjustments to its previously-reported total revenues, as those periods continue to be presented in accordance with its historical accounting practices under Topic 605, Revenue Recognition.

 

Revenue from providing IT consulting services are recognized under Topic 606 in a manner that reasonably reflects the delivery of its services to customers in return for expected consideration and includes the following elements:

 

  executed contracts with the Company’s customers that it believes are legally enforceable;
     
  identification of performance obligations in the respective contract;
     
  determination of the transaction price for each performance obligation in the respective contract;
     
  allocation the transaction price to each performance obligation; and
     
  recognition of revenue only when the Company satisfies each performance obligation.

 

These five elements, as applied to each of the Company’s IT revenue category, is summarized below:

 

  IT consulting services - revenue is recorded on a monthly basis as services are provided.

 

These five elements, as applied to each of the Company’s license revenue category, is summarize below:

  License services – the one-time related party licensing income recorded as other income upon agreement is executed and services are provided and recognized over the term of five years.

 

E-Commerce sales

 

  Identify the contract(s) with a customer. ASC 606 defines a contract as “an agreement between two or more parties that creates enforceable rights and obligations”. Since this is an e-commerce sale on the Amazon of eBay websites, the Company just followed the general terms on Amazon or eBay websites and the customer entered into a contract with the Company based on the product listed on the Amazon or eBay websites;

 

Identify the performance obligations in the contract. According to the contract, the Company is responsible for operation exclusively. The Company is entitled to all revenue which is being paid by Amazon or eBay into a designated bank account and the Company is responsible for all product acquisitions as well as shipments. The only performance obligations were the electronic products that were listed on Amazon or eBay websites and the Company determined each order is one single obligation;

 

Determine the transaction price. The transaction price set to be the listed price on the Amazon or eBay websites.;

 

Allocation the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract.; and

 

Recognize revenue when the Company satisfies a performance obligation. Sales are being recognized upon shipment.

 

Unearned revenue

 

Unearned revenue represents the net amount received for the purchase of products that have not seen shipped to the Company’s customers. The Company has $0 and $48,921 of unearned revenue at March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively.

 

Contract liabilities

 

On February 22, 2022, the Company entered into an Intellectual Property License and Royalty Agreement with Touchpoint Group Holdings, Inc. (“Touchpoint” or “TGHI”) pursuant to which the Company granted TGHI a worldwide license for its technologies for five years in the domains of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence enabled mobile technologies pertaining to the Company’s digital currency technology (the “Technology”). GBT will charge TGHI royalties based on actual uses by TGHI of the Technology resulting from revenue attributable to the use, performance or other exploitation of the Technology, to the extent applicable, after deducting any taxes that the Company may be required to collect, and deducting any international sales, goods and services, value added taxes or similar taxes which the Company is required to pay, if any, excluding deductions for taxes on the Company net income. TGHI agreed to issue the Company 10,000,000 shares of common stock of TGHI in the FV of $50,000 as a onetime fee for the Company entering this Intellectual Property License and Royalty Agreement, which was booked contract liabilities and amortized over the  five-year term. The Company has yet to earn any royalty income in relation to this agreement as of March 31, 2023. The contract liabilities as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022 was $38,944 and $41,444, respectively.

 

Variable Interest Entity

 

On February 18, 2022, the Company, effective March 1, 2022 entered into a Revenue Sharing Agreement (“RSA”) with Mahaser LTD. (“Mahaser”) pursuant to which the Company shares in revenues generated by Mahaser e-commerce sales through the online retail platform in the United States of America. Mahaser owns an e-commerce platform as a store which is the legal, exclusive owner of Ravenholm Electronics. The Company will operate the e-commerce platform and entitled to 95% for all revenue generated by and received by Mahaser from March 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022. The RSA provides that the Company will be entitled to appoint a manager to Mahaser. As consideration, the Company will pay Mahaser $100,000 no later than March 1, 2022 and issue Mahaser 1,000,000 shares of the Company’s restricted common stock. The Company shall have no obligations to make any further payments to Mahaser. For any further extensions, the Company will have the option to extend the RSA for annual payment of $200,000, which can be payable with the Company’s shares of common stock payable based on 20 days VWAP prior to issuance. On March 16, 2022 the parties entered into Amendment No. 1 to the to the RSA, where all consideration to be paid or issued to Mahaser will be deferred until such time where the e-commerce platform generated in cumulative revenue of $1,000,000.

On March 31, 2022, the parties entered into Amendment No. 2 to the RSA, where Mahaser agreed to pay the Company 100% per year for all revenue generated by and received by seller from the sales by Amazon within the United States of America as follows from March 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022. The Company will be responsible for 100% of the cost of goods sold as well. In addition, the Company is entitled to earn 100% revenues and cost of goods sold of the period from February 1, 2022 to February 28, 2022. On January 1, 2023 the company extended their partnership to December 31, 2023.

 

The Company evaluated whether it has a variable interest in Mahaser, whether Mahaser is a VIE and whether the Company has a controlling financial interest in Mahaser. The Company concluded that it has variable interests in Mahaser on the basis of GBT has 100% control over the JV/revenue sharing, and as such should consolidate the JV into its books and records as it assigned 100% financial responsibility. Mahaser’s equity at risk, as defined by GAAP, is considered to be insufficient to finance its activities without additional support, and, therefore, Mahaser is considered a VIE.

 

The following table summarizes the carrying amount of the assets and liabilities of Mahaser included in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets at March 31, 2023 and as December 31, 2022 (after elimination of intercompany transactions and balances):

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes. ASC 740 requires a company to use the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes, whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences, and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion, or all of, the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

 

Under ASC 740, a tax position is recognized as a benefit only if it is “more likely than not” that the tax position would be sustained in a tax examination, with a tax examination being presumed to occur. The amount recognized is the largest amount of tax benefit that is greater than 50% likely of being realized on examination. For tax positions not meeting the “more likely than not” test, no tax benefit is recorded. The Company has no material uncertain tax positions for any of the reporting periods presented and its current on all its tax filings federal and state until 2021 inclusive.

 

Basic and Diluted Earnings Per Share

 

Earnings per share is calculated in accordance with ASC Topic 260, Earnings Per Share. Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted EPS assumes that all dilutive securities are converted. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, options and warrants are assumed to be exercised at the beginning of the period (or at the time of issuance, if later), and as if funds obtained thereby were used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. Due to the net income incurred potentially dilutive instruments would be anti-dilutive. Accordingly, diluted loss per share is the same as basic loss for all periods presented. The following potentially-dilutive shares were excluded from the shares used to calculate diluted earnings per share as their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40)—Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity. ASU 2020-06 reduces the number of accounting models for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock. For convertible instruments with conversion features that are not required to be accounted for as derivatives under Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, or that do not result in substantial premiums accounted for as paid-in capital, the embedded conversion features no longer are separated from the host contract. ASU 2020-06 also removes certain conditions that should be considered in the derivatives scope exception evaluation under Subtopic 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity, and clarify the scope and certain requirements under Subtopic 815-40. In addition, ASU 2020-06 improves the guidance related to the disclosures and earnings-per-share (EPS) for convertible instruments and contract in entity’s own equity. ASU 2020-06 is effective for public business entities that meet the definition of a SEC filer, excluding entities eligible to be smaller reporting companies as defined by the SEC, for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Board specified that an entity should adopt the guidance as of the beginning of its annual fiscal year. The Company adopted this ASU on the CFS in the year ended December 31, 2021. The adoption had no material impact on the CFS for the period ended March 31, 2023.

 

On April 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-04, “Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Debt— Modifications and Extinguishments (Subtopic 470-50), Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718), and Derivatives and Hedging— Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options” (“ASU 2021-04”) to clarify the accounting by issuers for modifications or exchanges of equity-classified warrants. The new ASU is available here and effective for all entities in fiscal years starting after December 15, 2021. Early adoption is permitted. The Company adopted this ASU on the CFS in the year ended December 31, 2021. The adoption had no material impact on the CFS for the period ended March 31, 2023.

 

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards could have a material effect on the accompanying CFS. As new accounting pronouncements are issued, we will adopt those that are applicable under the circumstances.

On June 23, 2020, SURG entered into an Exchange Agreement (the “AltCorp Exchange Agreement”) with AltCorp Trading LLC (“AltCorp”) with such AltCorp Exchange Agreement being consented and agreed to by the Company, the parent of AltCorp. At the expiration of the lock-up period, in the event the VWAP for the SURG Common Stock was, during the preceding twenty-day trading period, less than $0.50 per share, AltCorp retained the right to reserve additional shares of SURG Common Stock equal to the True-Up Value as defined in the AltCorp Exchange Agreement.

 

On March 8, 2020, SURG filed a lawsuit against its transfer agent from transferring millions of SURG stock that is currently in possession by the Company and assigned to Stanley Hills, LLC. On January 1, 2021, SURG, AltCorp and Stanley Hills, LLC (“Stanley”) entered into a Mutual Release and Settlement Agreement (“Settlement Agreement”). Pursuant to the terms of the Settlement Agreement, SURG agreed to amend the AltCorp Exchange Agreement where SURG acknowledged a debt of $3,300,000 (the “Debt”) to be paid in 33 monthly payments of $100,000 payable in shares of common stock of SURG at a per share price equal the volume weighted average price of Surg’s common stock during the 10 trading days immediately preceding the issuance.

The SURG common stock issued to Altcorp have been pledged since August 12, 2020 for the benefit of Stanley to secure Stanley’s note payable by the Company. Accordingly, the SURG Common Stock issued to AltCorp as a result of the Settlement Agreement were pledged to Stanley. As of December 31, 2021 there were no surge shares pledges after the final settlement signed on December 22, 2021 and that replaced all prior settlement agreement.

In the event that Latinex’s required capital has decreased below $5,000,000, Latinex is permitted to sell the pledged shares of common stock only in an amount to ensure that Latinex can satisfy the required capital levels. The Company must consent to such sale of the shares of common stock, which may not be unreasonably withheld. Upon expiration of the agreement, the remaining shares of common stock shall be returned to the Company free and clear of all liens. The Company has recorded the value of these shares of common stock as a stock loan receivable which is presented as a contra-equity account in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. At December 31, 2019, the Company wrote off the accrued interest income as Latinex did not perform any payment and the Company has no mean to enforce this payment. Latinex agreed in principle to return the pledged 4,006 restricted shares to the Company for cancellation. The 4,006 restricted shares have not yet been returned to the Company as of March 31, 2023.

Note 7 – Impaired Investment

 

Investment in GBT Technologies, S.A.

 

On June 17, 2019, the Company, AltCorp Trading LLC, a Costa Rica company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“AltCorp”), GBT Technologies, S.A., a Costa Rica company (“GBT-CR”) and Pablo Gonzalez, a shareholder’s representative of GBT-CR (“Gonzalez”), entered into and closed an Exchange Agreement (the “GBT Exchange Agreement”) pursuant to which the parties exchanged certain securities. In accordance with the Exchange Agreement, AltCorp acquired 625,000 shares of GBT-CR representing 25% of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock from Gonzalez for the issuance of 20,000 shares of Series H Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company and a Convertible Note in the principal amount of $10,000,000 issued by the Company (the “Gopher Convertible Note”) as well as the transfer and assignment of a Promissory Note payable by Gopher Protocol Costa Rica Sociedad De Responsabilidad Limitada to the Company of $5,000,000 dated February 6, 2019 (of which the underlying security for this Promissory Note is 30,000,000 restricted shares of common stock of Mobiquity Technologies, Inc. (“Mobiquity”) and 60,000,000 restricted shares of common stock of Mobiquity.

 

The Gopher Convertible Note bears interest of 6% and is payable at maturity on December 31, 2021. At the election of Gonzalez, the Gopher Convertible Note can be converted into a maximum of 20,000 shares of Series H Preferred Stock. Each share of Series H Preferred Stock is convertible, at the option of the holder but subject to the Company increasing its authorized shares of common stock, into such number of shares of common stock of the Company as determined by dividing the Stated Value ($500 per share) by the conversion price ($500 per share). The Series H Preferred Stock has no liquidation preference, does not pay dividends and the holder of Series H Preferred Stock shall be entitled to one vote for each share of common stock that the Series H Preferred Stock may be convertible into. Upon conversion of the Gopher Convertible Note and the 20,000 shares of Series H Preferred Stock, Gonzalez would be entitled to less than 50% of the resulting outstanding shares of common stock of the Company following conversion in full and, as a result, such transaction is not considered a change of control.

 

On May 19, 2021, the Company, entered into a Mutual Release and Settlement Agreement and Irrevocable Assignment of Note Balance Principal and Accrued Interest (the “Gonzalez Agreement”) with third party, GBT-CR, IGOR 1 Corp and Gonzalez. Pursuant to the Gonzalez Agreement, without any party admission of liability and to avoid litigation, the parties had agreed to (i) extend the GBT Convertible Note maturity date to December 31,2022, (ii) amend the GBT Convertible Note terms to include a beneficial ownership blocker of 4.99% and a modified conversion feature to the GBT Convertible Note with 15% discount to the market price during the 20 trading day period ending on the latest complete trading day prior to the conversion date and (iii) provided for an assignment of the GBT Convertible Note by Gonzalez to a third party.

 

GBT-CR is in the business of the strategic management of BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) digital communications processing for enterprises and startups, distributed ledger technology development, AI development and fintech software development and applications.

 

The Company accounted for its investment in GBT-CR using the equity method of accounting; however, in 2020, the Company owned less than 20% after GBT-CR issued additional shares to other investors therefore exercised no control over GBT-CR; therefore, this investment is currently accounted for under the cost method. Moreover, on March 19, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom issued a stay-at-home order to protect the health and well-being of all Californians and to establish consistency across the state in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. California was therefore under strict quarantine control and travel has been severely restricted, resulting in disruptions to work, communications, and access to files (due to limited access to facilities). The stay-at-home order was lifted in California only on January 25, 2021. As such, the Company was unable to access or to contact GBT-CR on an on-going basis, and cannot get information about GBT-CR.

 

Investment in Joint Venture

 

On March 6, 2020, the Company through Greenwich, entered into a Joint Venture and Territorial License Agreement (the “Tokenize Agreement”) with Tokenize-It, S.A. (“Tokenize”), which is owned by a Costa Rica Trust represented by Pablo Gonzalez (“Gonzalez”). Gonzalez also represents Gonzalez Costa Rica Trust, which holds a note in the principal amount of $10,000,000 and is also a shareholder of the Company. Under the Tokenize Agreement, the parties formed GBT Tokenize Corp., a Nevada corporation (“GBT Tokenize”). The purpose of GBT Tokenize is to develop, maintain and support source codes for its proprietary technologies including advanced mobile chip technologies, tracking, radio technologies, AI core engine, electronic design automation, mesh, games, data storage, networking, IT services, business process outsourcing development services, customer service, technical support and quality assurance for business, customizable and dedicated inbound and outbound calls solutions, as well as digital communications processing for enterprises and startups (“Technology Portfolio”), throughout the State of California. Upon generating any revenue from the Technology Portfolio, the Joint Venture will earn the first right of refusal for other territories.

The Company pledged its 50% ownership in GBT Tokenize and its 100% ownership of Greenwich to Tokenize to secure its Technology Portfolio investment. The Company shall appoint two directors and Tokenize shall appoint one director of GBT Tokenize.

 

Tokenize shall contribute the services and resources for the development of the Technology Portfolio to GBT Tokenize. The Company shall contribute 2,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company (“GBT Shares”) to GBT Tokenize. Tokenize and the Company will each own 50% of GBT Tokenize. The shares were valued at $5,500,000.

 

In addition, GBT Tokenize and Gonzalez entered into a Consulting Agreement in which Gonzalez is engaged to provide services for $33,333 per month payable quarterly which may be paid in shares of common stock calculated by the amount owed divided by the Company’s 10-day VWAP. Gonzalez will provide services in connection with the development of the business as well as GBT Tokenize’s capital raising efforts. The term of the Consulting Agreement is two years. During year ended December 31, 2021, Gonzalez assigned all his accrued balances of $424,731 to Stanley Hills in a private transaction that the Company is not part to. The closing of the Tokenize Agreement occurred on March 9, 2020.

 

Through this Joint Venture the parties commenced development of an intelligent human vital signs’ device, which we currently refer to as the qTerm. The platform is an expansion of the existing license agreement with GBT Tokenize Corp., which provided GBT Tokenize Corp. with an exclusive territory of California to develop certain of the Company’s technology. As the nature of the platform cannot be restricted only to California, the Company’s joint venture GBT Tokenize Corp. will be compensated with additional two hundred million shares of the Company to strengthen its funding, subject to board approval. A provisional patent application for the qTerm Medical Device was filed on March 30, 2020 with the USPTO. The application has been assigned serial number 63001564. The Joint Venture completed successfully the first prototype. There is no guarantee that the Company will be successful in researching, developing or implementing this product into the market. In order to successfully implement this concept, the Company will need to raise adequate capital to support its research and, if successfully researched, developed and granted regulatory approval, the Company would need to enter into a strategic relationship with a third party that has experience in manufacturing, selling and distributing this product. There is no guarantee the Company will be successful in any or all of these critical steps.

 

On May 28, 2021, the parties agreed to amend the Tokenize Agreement to expand territory granted for the Technology Portfolio under the license to GBT Tokenize to include the entire continental United States. The Company further agreed to issue GBT Tokenize an additional 14,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company. The shares were valued at $15,400,000.

 

At March 31, 2020, the Company evaluated the carrying amount of this joint venture investment and determined this investment was fully impaired and as a result an impairment charge of $5,500,000 was taken. At December 31, 2021, the Company evaluated the carrying amount of this joint venture investment and determined that this investment was fully impaired and as a result an impairment charge of $15,400,000 was taken.

 

Although the investment was impaired, the product development is still ongoing. The carrying amount of this investment at March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, was $0 and $0, respectively.

On January 2, 2023, the Company issued a convertible promissory note to Stanley for its credit balances in the principal amount of $750,000.

As a result, FINRA advised that it is necessary for the protection of investors, the public interest, and to maintain fair and orderly markets that documentation related to the Reverse Stock Split not be processed. The Company appealed the decision made by FINRA on June 15, 2020. On August 4, 2020, FINRA notified the Company that its appeal had been denied. On October 25, 2021 FINRA approved the Reverse Stock Split and on October 26, 2021, the Company effectuated a 1 for 50 reverse stock split.

Pursuant to the terms of the Settlement Agreement, SURG agreed to amend the AltCorp Exchange Agreement where SURG acknowledged a debt of $3,300,000 (the “Debt”) to be paid in 33 monthly payments of $100,000 payable in shares of common stock of SURG at a per share price equal the volume weighted average price of Surg’s common stock during the 10 trading days immediately preceding the issuance.

Note 16 - Legal Proceedings

 

From time to time, the Company may be involved in various litigation matters, which arise in the ordinary course of business. There is currently no litigation that management believes will have a material impact on the financial position of the Company.

 

On or around January 30, 2019, RWJ Advanced Marketing, LLC, Greg Bauer, and Warren Jackson sued the Company and multiple third and related parties in Superior Court of the State of California - County of Los Angeles, General District in connection with the acquisition of UGO in September 2017. The case number is 19STCV03320 (the “Original Lawsuit”). The complaint in the Original Lawsuit alleges breach of contract, among other causes of action. The Company answered the complaint and filed a cross-complaint against the plaintiffs in the case and third parties on or around February 15, 2019. On or about September 10, 2020, the Company through its agent of service was “served” with a complaint (the Company contested service) that was recently filed against the Company and third parties by Robert Warren Jackson and Gregory Bauer in Los Angeles Superior Court Case No.: 20STCV32709 (“Second Lawsuit”). In the Original Lawsuit filed, the court rejected the plaintiff’s claims that they were filing a purported quasi-derivative lawsuit. As such, in this current litigation, the plaintiff is now again claiming the action is a derivative lawsuit. On October 13, 2020, the Second Lawsuit was removed by other defendants into Central District of California (CASE NO. 2:20−cv−09399−RGK−AGR). On February 2, 2021 the Central District of California dismissed the entire Second Lawsuit based on “demand futility”. In the Original lawsuit, the Company filed a cross complaint against the plaintiff and other third parties. Recently, the court has scheduled various hearings and a trial date set for December 27, 2021 which was later continued by the Court to September 28, 2022. It was the Company’s intention to dividend its holdings of its wholly owned subsidiary Ugopher services Corp. (“UGO”). As UGO is the main dispute in the litigations described above, the Company has elected to sell UGO to a third-party effective July 1, 2020. On September 17, 2020, the Company terminated Greg Bauer as consultant (resulting from the sale of UGO), which he confirmed in writing. On or about June 14, 2021 the Company stipulated with plaintiff that all third parties will be released and plaintiff may file a new first amendment complaint that will name only the Company. As such, all third parties other than prior transfer agent of the Company have been dismissed from this litigation.

Following the sale of UGO, the Company noticed third parties (including SURG, via its asset manager) to wire the UGO funds to its new bank account. SURG never answered the notice. SURG is the clearing house for UGO.The Company noticed certain third parties that it intends to take legal actions to resolve this issue. On November 12, 2020 the Company filed a complaint in the United States District Court – District of Nevada - Case 2:20-cv-02078 against RWJ, Mr. Bauer, Mr. Jackson and against W.L. Petrey Wholesale Company Inc for fraud, breach of contract, Unjust Enrichment and other claims. On January 28, 2022 the court awarded the Company with injunction against RWJ defendants, where all fee funds generating from resale should be deposited into GBT blocked account, and therefore RWJ defendants cannot use these funds without court order.

 

The Company entered into the Confidential Settlement Agreement and Mutual Release (“RJW Agreement”) by and between RWJ Advanced Marketing, LLC, Robert Warren Jackson, Gregory Bauer (collectively the “RJW Parties”) and W.L. Petrey Wholesale Company, Inc., (“Petrey”) on one hand; and GBT Technologies Inc., on behalf of itself and its agents (collectively the GBT Parties”), on the other hand. The Company the RJW Agreement effective September 26, 2022 with final signatures delivered to the Company on or about October 5, 2022. Pursuant to the RJW Agreement, the parties have agreed to settle, release, and otherwise resolve all known or unknown claims between them and agreed to jointly stipulate, move, or otherwise dismiss the lawsuits filed in the United States District Court of Nevada (Case No. 2:20-cv- 02078), in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles, Central District (Case Nos. 19STCV03320 and 20STCV32709), and in the United States District Court of the Central District of California (Case No. 2:20-cv-09399-RGK-AGR) with prejudice. The parties agreed and stipulated to release all funds currently being held in a blocked account of $19,809 with 50% distributed to the RWJ Parties and 50% distributed the Company or its assignee. The Parties also entered into the InComm Assignment Agreement (“IAA”) which assigned, transferred and conveyed all proceeds derived from the RWJ Parties’ agreements with Interactive Communications International, Inc., and its affiliate Hi Technology Corp., including but not limited to that Master Distribution and Service Agreement between Interactive Communications International, Inc. and Petrey d/b/a UGO-HUB dated August 29, 2016, as amended (collectively referred to as the “InComm Proceeds”), and which shall divide the InComm Proceeds 90% to the Company or its assignee and 10% to the RWJ Parties or their assignee. Finally, the Company agreed to pay $40,000 to the RWJ Parties or their assignee. The Company accrued $49,847 expenses represent the final amounts due to the RJW Parties.

 

The Company under a different settlement agreement with SURG, committed to assign the IAA. As such, on October 5, 2022 and as cumulation of all settlement agreements the Company issued a request to SURG regarding release of certain escrow funds and the execution of an assignment of rights as contemplated in the aforereferenced agreement.

 

On December 3, 2018, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”) with Discover Growth Fund, LLC (the “Investor”) pursuant to which the Company issued a Senior Secured Redeemable Convertible Debenture (the “Debenture”) of $8,340,000. In connection with the issuance of the Debenture and pursuant to the terms of the SPA, the Company issued a Common Stock Purchase Warrant to acquire up to 225,000 shares of common stock for a term of three years (the “Warrant”) on a cash-only basis at an exercise price of $100 per share with respect to 50,000 Warrant Shares, $75 with respect to 75,000 Warrant Shares and $50 with respect to 100,000 Warrant Shares. The holder may not exercise any portion of the Warrants to the extent that the holder would own more than 4.99% of the Company’s outstanding common stock immediately after exercise. The outstanding principal amount may be converted at any time into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price equal to 95% of the Market Price less $5 (the conversion price is lowered by 10% upon the occurrence of each Triggering Event – the current conversion price is 75% of the Market Price less $5.00). The Market Price is the average of the 5 lowest individual daily volume weighted average prices during the period the Debenture is outstanding. On May 28, 2019, the Investor delivered to the Company a “Notice of Default and Notice of Sale of Collateral” (the “Notice”). On December 23, 2019, in arbitration between the Company and the Investor,

 

33

 

 

an Interim Award was entered in favor of the Investor. On January 31, 2020, the Company was informed that a final award was entered (the “Final Award”). The Final Award affirms that certain sections of the Debenture constitute unenforceable liquidated damages penalties and were stricken. Further, it was determined that the Investor was entitled to recovery of their attorney’s fees. Consequently, the arbitrator awarded Investor an award of $4,034,444 plus interest of 7.25% accrued from May 15, 2019 and costs of $55,613. On February 18, 2020, the Company filed a motion with the United States District Court District of Nevada (the “Nevada Court”) to confirm the Final Award and a motion to consolidate Investor’s application to confirm the Final Award filed in the U.S. District Court of the Virgin Islands (Case No: 3 :20-cv-00012-CVG-RM) (the “Virgin Island Court”). On February 27, 2020, the Nevada Court denied the Company’s motion to confirm the Final Award and motion to consolidate and further decided that the confirmation of the Final Award should be litigated in the Virgin Island Court. As such, on February 27, 2020, the Company filed a Notice of Entry of Order as well as a Motion to Confirm the Arbitration Award, address the outstanding issues regarding whether Investor’s rights are subordinated to other creditors and, thereafter, oversee a commercially reasonable foreclosure sale (Case No: 3 :20-cv-00012-CVG-RM). It was the Company’s position that the Final Award must first be confirmed and all questions regarding the rights of Investor relative to those of other creditors must be determined before any foreclosure sale can proceed. It is further the position of the Company that the previously disclosed foreclosure sale scheduled by Investor is being conducted in a commercially unreasonable manner and that if Discover proceeded forward with the foreclosure sale it did so at its own risk. Nevertheless, on February 28, 2020, Investor advised that it conducted a sale of the Company’s assets. As the date of this report Investor failed to present a deed of sale for the alleged sale that allegedly took place as noticed. The Company filed with Virgin Island Court the motions disputing the validity of the alleged sale. On July 28, 2020, Investor filed in the State of Nevada a motion for attorneys $48,844 and costs $716. The Company filed an answer on August 11, 2020. On October 16, 2020, Investor motion for attorneys $48,844 and costs $716 was denied. This case is still pending with the Federal court and the Court has not taken any substantive action in the matter as of the date of this report.

 

On or about July 9, 2021 the Company filed a lawsuit in District Court in Clack County Nevada – Department 19 (Case number A-21-837631-C) against Terry Taylor and TTSG Holdings, Inc for breach of contract, breach of covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing, Unjust Enrichment and declaratory relief for failure of providing consulting services per contract they entered. The Company is demanding the return of 240,000 shares issued, return of the $5,000 payments, recission of the consulting agreement, and attorney’s fees and costs. As Terry Taylor and TTSG Holdings failed to appear to a notice of deposition, the Company filed for a summary judgment. On January 20, 2023 the court issued a $708,821 writ of execution against Terry Taylor and TTSG

 

Gregory Mancuso and Rainer AG

 

On or about February 2, 2022, GBT was served with a First Amended Complaint (the “Complaint”) initiated by Gregory Mancuso and Rainer AG, a Swiss corporation, Case No. 21SMCV01430, filed in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles. The Complaint names a number of different parties, including GBT, and asserts, among other things, claims for conversion, unjust enrichment, breach of contract, and breach of implied covenant of fair dealing, which Plaintiffs allege arise out of a brokerage agreement entered into between Plaintiff Rainer AG and co-defendant Consul Group re Dos Mil Veintiuno S.R.L (“Consul”). GBT was sued under an alter ego theory of liability, and its only involvement in the above-referenced chain of events seems to be that its shares were deposited with Rainer by Consul upon the opening of the brokerage account. GBT will be filling a demurrer to the First Amended Complaint based on a variety of deficiencies with the First Amended Complaint, and will ask the Court to dismiss the claims against GBT.

Our board of directors will have the authority, without further action by the stockholders, to issue up to 20,000,000 shares of preferred stock in one or more series and to fix the designations, powers, preferences, privileges, and relative participating, optional, or special rights as well as the qualifications, limitations, or restrictions of the preferred stock, including dividend rights, conversion rights, voting rights, terms of redemption, and liquidation preferences, any or all of which may be greater than the rights of the common stock. Our board of directors, without stockholder approval, will be able to issue convertible preferred stock with voting, conversion, or other rights that could adversely affect the voting power and other rights of the holders of common stock. Preferred stock could be issued quickly with terms calculated to delay or prevent a change of control or make removal of management more difficult.

Anti-Takeover Provisions Under Nevada Law.

 

Combinations with Interested Stockholder. Sections 78.411-78.444, inclusive, of the Nevada Revised Statutes (“NRS”) contain provisions governing combinations with an interested stockholder. For purposes of the NRS, “combinations” include: (i) any merger or consolidation with any interested stockholder, (ii) any sale, lease, exchange, mortgage, pledge, transfer or other disposition to any interested stockholder of corporate assets with an aggregate market value equal to 5% or more of the aggregate market value of the corporation’s consolidated assets, 5% or more of the outstanding shares of the corporation or 10% or more of the earning power or net income of the corporation, (iii) the issuance to any interested stockholder of voting shares (except pursuant to a share dividend or similar proportionate distribution) with an aggregate market value equal to 5% or more of the aggregate market value of all the outstanding shares of the corporation, (iv) the dissolution of the corporation if proposed by or on behalf of any interested stockholder, (v) any reclassification of securities, recapitalization or corporate reorganization that will have the effect of increasing the proportionate share of the corporation’s outstanding voting shares held by any interested stockholder and (vi) any receipt by the interested stockholder of the benefit (except proportionately as a stockholder) of any loan, advance, guarantee, pledge or other financial assistance. For purposes of the NRS, an “interested stockholder” is defined to include any beneficial owner of more than 10% of any class of the voting securities of a Nevada corporation and any person who is an affiliate or associate of the corporation and was at any time during the preceding three years the beneficial owner or more than 10% of any class of the voting securities of the Nevada corporation.

 

Subject to certain exceptions, the provisions of the NRS governing combinations with interested stockholders provide that a Nevada corporation may not engage in a combination with an interested stockholder for two years after the date that the person first became an interested stockholder unless the combination or the transaction by which the person first became an interested stockholder is approved by the board of directors before the person first became an interested stockholder.

Control Share Acquisitions. The NRS also contains a “control share acquisitions statute.” If applicable to a Nevada corporation this statute restricts the voting rights of certain stockholders referred to as “acquiring persons,” that acquire or offer to acquire ownership of a “controlling interest” in the outstanding voting stock of an “issuing corporation.” For purposes of these provisions a “controlling interest” means with certain exceptions the ownership of outstanding voting stock sufficient to enable the acquiring person to exercise one-fifth or more but less than one-third, one-third or more but less than a majority, or a majority or more of all voting power in the election of directors and “issuing corporation” means a Nevada corporation that has 200 or more stockholders of record, at least 100 of whom have addresses in Nevada appearing on the stock ledger of the corporation, and which does business in Nevada directly or through an affiliated corporation. The voting rights of an acquiring person in the affected shares will be restored only if such restoration is approved by the holders of a majority of the voting power of the corporation. The NRS allows a corporation to “opt-out” of the control share acquisitions statute by providing in such corporation’s articles of incorporation or bylaws that the control share acquisitions statute does not apply to the corporation or to an acquisition of a controlling interest specifically by types of existing or future stockholders, whether or not identified.

 

Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws

 

No Cumulative Voting. Where cumulative voting is permitted in the election of directors, each share is entitled to as many votes as there are directors to be elected and each shareholder may cast all of its votes for a single director nominee or distribute them among two or more director nominees. Thus, cumulative voting makes it easier for a minority shareholder to elect a director. Our articles of incorporation deny shareholders the right to vote cumulatively.

 

Authorized But Unissued Shares. Our articles of incorporation permit the board to authorize the issuance of preferred stock, and to designate the rights and preferences of our preferred stock, without obtaining shareholder approval. One of the effects of undesignated preferred stock may be to enable the board to render more difficult or to discourage a third party’s attempt to obtain control of Gopher Protocol by means of a tender offer, proxy contest, merger, or otherwise. The issuance of shares of preferred stock also may discourage a party from making a bid for the common stock because the issuance may adversely affect the rights of the holders of common stock. For example, preferred stock that we issue may rank prior to the common stock as to dividend rights, liquidation preference, or both, may have special voting rights and may be convertible into shares of common stock. Accordingly, the issuance of shares of preferred stock may discourage bids for our common stock or may otherwise adversely affect the market price of our common stock.

 

Transfer Agent and Registrar

 

The transfer agent and registrar for our common stock is Nevada Agency and Transfer Company (“NATCO”) with a business address at 50 West Liberty Street, Suite 880, Reno NV 89501; NATCO’s website is www.natco.com, and their phone number is (775) 322-0626.

(“Mahaser”) pursuant to which the Company acquired the opportunity to share in revenues generated by Mahaser with respect to e-commerce sales through the online retail platform in the United States of America. Mahaser owns an e-commerce platform as a store which is the legal, exclusive owner of Ravenholm Electronics. The Company will operate the e-commerce platform and will be entitled to 95% for all revenue generated by and received by Mahaser for the period from March 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022. The RSA provides that the Company will be entitled to appoint a manager to Mahaser. As consideration, the Company will pay Mahaser $100,000 no later than March 1, 2022 and issue Mahaser 1,000,000 shares of the Company’s restricted common stock. The Company shall have no obligations to make any further payments to Mahaser. For any further extensions, the Company will have the option to extend the RSA for annual payment of $200,000, which can be payable with the Company’s shares of common stock payable based on 20 days VWAP prior to issuance.

In addition, the Company is entitled to earn 100% revenues and cost of goods sold of the test run period from February 1, 2022 to February 28, 2022.

 

Wireless mesh networking

 

Wireless mesh networks consist of LAN/MAN/WAN solutions that are infrastructural-intensive, may rely on regulated frequencies and bandwidth, often have so-called “last mile” problems areas where either economics or population density make it too expensive for current solutions to cover, and difficult to manage centrally. The Company’s GopherInsight platform makes it easy to add and manage last mile capacity. The solution is easily integrated into existing networks. The Company’s AI platform is designed for easy integration with, and management of, additional coverage for customer networks.

 

44

 

 

Wireless mesh networking markets

 

The Company potentially will target telecommunications providers, corporate entities that run LAN or wide-area networks, universities, and government entities.

 

Wireless mesh networking markets competition

 

The competitors for wireless mesh networking solutions, and AI solutions, are the entities themselves that have their own capability. The Company’s strategy is to integrate and “wrap around” those solutions to make them more efficient, less costly, and less infrastructural-intensive, while at the same time solving last mile problems to the end user.

 

COVID-19 Pandemic

 

The Company operates in a high-tech marketplace and relies on professionals and partnerships all over the world, which is impacted by the global pandemic, causing the Company’s resources to be affected. Our business operations have been and may continue to be materially and adversely affected by the coronavirus disease COVID-19.

 

An outbreak of respiratory illness caused by COVID-19 emerged in Wuhan city, Hubei province, PRC, in late 2019 and expanded globally. COVID-19 is considered to be highly contagious and poses a serious public health threat.

 

On March 19, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom issued a stay-at-home order to protect the health and well-being of all Californians and to establish consistency across the state in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. California was therefore under strict quarantine control and travel has been severely restricted, resulting in disruptions to work, communications, and access to files (due to limited access to facilities). Since then, other measures have been imposed in other countries and major cities in the USA, including Los Angeles, and throughout the world in an effort to contain the COVID-19 outbreak. The World Health Organization (the “WHO”) is closely monitoring and evaluating the situation. On March 11, 2020, the WHO declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a pandemic, expanding its assessment of the threat beyond the global health emergency it had announced in January. Any outbreak of such epidemic illness or other adverse public health developments in the USA or elsewhere in the world may materially and adversely affect the global economy, our markets and our business. The stay-at-home order was lifted in California only on January 25, 2021.

 

In the first quarter of 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak caused disruptions in our development operations, which resulted in delays on exiting projects. The State of California and the economy in general has begun to slowly re-open following the introduction of the COVID-19 vaccine. However, in the event COVID-19 or other variant is to again surface any further unforeseen delay in our operations of the development, delivery and assembly process within any of our activities could continue to result in, increased costs and reduced revenue.

 

We cannot foresee whether the outbreak of COVID-19 and its variants will continue to be effectively contained. If the outbreak of COVID-19 is not effectively and timely controlled, our business operations and financial condition may be materially and adversely affected as a result of the deteriorating market outlook for sales, the slowdown in regional and national economic growth, weakened liquidity and financial condition of our customers and vendors or other factors that we cannot foresee. Any of these factors and other factors beyond our control could have an adverse effect on the overall business environment, cause uncertainties, cause our business to suffer in ways that we cannot predict and materially and adversely impact our business, financial condition and results of operations.

Net Income (Loss)  $(5,629,713)  $3,926,239   $(9,555,952)   170%

 

For the period ended March 31, 2023, our Company earned net revenues of $217,785. $217,785 sales were derived from E-commerce sales.

 

For the period ended March 31, 2022, our Company earned net revenues of $269,970. $45,000 sales were derived from providing IT consulting services to a related party, and $224,970 sales were derived from Amazon sales that commenced in the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

 

 

Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2023 were $498,229, compared to $1,006,402 for the same period in 2022. The decrease of $508,173 or 102% was principally due to a decrease in marketing and Professional expense.

 

Other income (expense) for the three months ended March 31, 2023 was $(5,173,178), an increase of $10,044,836 or 194% from $4,871,658 for the same period in 2022. The change is principally due to an increase in the change in FV of derivative liability.

 

Net income (loss) for the three months ended March 31, 2023 was $(5,629,713) compared to $3,926,239 for the same period in 2022 due to the factors described above.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has an accumulated deficit of $304,887,630 and has a working capital deficit of $22,715,354 as of March 31, 2023, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate profitable operations in the future and/or obtain the necessary financing to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. Management has plans to seek additional capital through some private placement offerings of debt and equity securities. These plans, if successful, will mitigate the factors which raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts, or amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from this uncertainty.

 

Our cash and cash equivalent was $59,067 and $106,639 at March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively. Cash provided by (used in) operating activities during the period ended March 31, 2023 was $(112,635), compared to $244,232 during the same period in 2022. The amount provided by operating activities for the period ended March 31 2023 was primarily related to a net loss of $5,629,713 and offset by amortization of debt discount of $147,628, change in FV of derivative liability of $3,924,246 and excess of debt discount and financing cost. Our working capital position changed by going from a working capital deficit of $18,522,046 at December 31, 2022 to a working capital deficit of $22,715,354 at March 31, 2023.

 

46

 

 

Cash flows used in investing activities were nil during the period ended March 31, 2023, compared to $125,000 for the same period in 2022. The increase is due to the Stock Purchase Agreement with Marko Radisic and Touchpoint Group Holdings, Inc. and the Intellectual Property License and Royalty Agreement with Touchpoint Group Holdings, Inc.

 

Cash from financing activities for the period ended March 31, 2023 was $65,063, compared to $222,422 for the same period in 2022. The change was primarily due to an increase in proceeds from convertible notes of $104,300, and an increase in proceeds from related party of $302,506 and repayments to related party of $302,700 and a repayment of convertible note payable $39,043. Cash from financing activities for the period ended March 31, 2022, was due to an increase in proceeds from related party of $336,734 and repayments to related party of $182,618 and proceeds from sales of common stock.

 

We sustained net loss of $5,629,713 for the period ended March 31, 2023. In addition, we had a working capital deficit of $22,715,354 and accumulated deficit of $304,887,630 at March 31, 2023.

 

Equity Purchase Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement

 

On December 17, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), the Company entered into an equity financing agreement (the “Equity Financing Agreement”) and a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with GHS Investments LLC (“GHS”), pursuant to which GHS shall purchase from the Company, up to that number of shares of common stock of the Company (the “Shares”) for $10,000,000, subject to certain limitations and conditions set forth in the Equity Financing Agreement from time to time over of 24 months after an effective registration of the Shares with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, is declared effective by the SEC (the “Contract Period”).

 

The Equity Financing Agreement grants the Company the right, from time to time at its sole discretion (subject to certain conditions) during the Contract Period, to direct GHS to purchase shares of Common Stock on any business day (a “Put”), provided that at least ten trading days has passed since the most recent Put. The purchase price of the shares of Common Stock contained in a Put will be 90% of the lowest daily volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the Company’s Common Stock during the ten consecutive trading days preceding the receipt by GHS of the applicable Put notice. Such sales of Common Stock by the Company, if any, may occur from time to time, at the Company’s option, during the Contract Period. Subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions set forth in the Equity Financing Agreement, on each Put the Company will deliver a number of Shares equaling 110% of the dollar amount of each Put. The maximum dollar amount of each Put will not exceed 200% of the average daily trading dollar volume for the Company’s Common Stock during the ten trading days preceding the Trading Day that GHS receives a Put. No Put will be made in an amount equaling less than $10,000 or greater than $500,000. Puts are further limited to GHS owning no more than 4.99% of the outstanding stock of the Company at any given time. The Equity Financing Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement contain customary representations, obligations, rights, warranties, agreements and conditions of the parties. The Equity Financing Agreement terminates upon any of the following events: when GHS has purchased $10,000,000 in the Common Stock of the Company pursuant to the Equity Financing Agreement; on the date that is 24 calendar months from the date the Equity Financing Agreement was executed.

 

Actual sales of shares of Common Stock to GHS under the Equity Financing Agreement will depend on a variety of factors to be determined by the Company from time to time, including, among others, market conditions, the trading price of the Common Stock and determinations by the Company as to the appropriate sources of funding for the Company and its operations. The Company issued 463,303 shares with net proceeds of $66,942 from the Equity Financing Agreement in February 2022.

 

We intend to continue to make investments to support our business growth and we will require additional funds to respond to business challenges, including the need to develop new features and products or enhance our existing products, improve our operating infrastructure or acquire complementary businesses and technologies. Further, we need additional capital to continue operations. We expect that we have sufficient capital to maintain operations through the end of 2023. In order to fully implement our business plan, we will need to raise $10,000,000. The Company will need to raise additional capital in the future of which there is no guarantee that the Company will be able to successfully raise such capital on acceptable terms. With the current cash on hand, and additional cash anticipated to be raised in the future, we believe we will have sufficient cash to meet our obligations for the next 12 months.

Discover Growth Fund

 

On December 3, 2018, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”) with Discover Growth Fund, LLC (the “Investor”) pursuant to which the Company issued a Senior Secured Redeemable Convertible Debenture (the “Debenture”) in the aggregate face value of $8,340,000. In connection with the issuance of the Debenture and pursuant to the terms of the SPA, the Company issued a Common Stock Purchase Warrant to acquire up to 225,000 shares of common stock for a term of three years (the “Warrant”) on a cash-only basis at an exercise price of $100.00 per share with respect to 50,000 Warrant Shares, $75.00 with respect to 75,000 Warrant Shares and $50.00 with respect to 100,000 Warrant Shares. The holder may not exercise any portion of the Warrants to the extent that the holder would own more than 4.99% of the Company’s outstanding common stock immediately after exercise. The outstanding principal amount may be converted at any time into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price equal to 95% of the Market Price less $5.00 (the conversion price is lowered by 10% upon the occurrence of each Triggering Event – the current conversion price is 75% of the Market Price less $5.00). The Market Price is the average of the 5 lowest individual daily volume weighted average prices during the period the Debenture is outstanding. On May 28, 2019, the Investor delivered to the Company a “Notice of Default and Notice of Sale of Collateral” (the “Notice”). On December 23, 2019, in arbitration between the Company and the Investor, an Interim Award was entered in favor of the Investor. On January 31, 2020, the Company was informed that a final award was entered (the “Final Award”). The Final Award affirms that certain sections of the Debenture constitute unenforceable liquidated damages penalties and were stricken. Further, it was determined that the Investor was entitled to recovery of their attorney’s fees. Consequently, the arbitrator awarded Investor an award of $4,034,444 plus interest of 7.25% accrued from May 15, 2019 and costs in the amount of $55,613. On February 18, 2020, the Company filed a motion with the United States District Court District of Nevada (the “Nevada Court”) to confirm the Final Award and a motion to consolidate Investor’s application to confirm the Final Award filed in the U.S. District Court of the Virgin Islands (Case No: 3 :20-cv-00012-CVG-RM) (the “Virgin Island Court”). On February 27, 2020, the Nevada Court denied the Company’s motion to confirm the Final Award and motion to consolidate and further decided that the confirmation of the Final Award should be litigated in the Virgin Island Court. As such, on February 27, 2020, the Company filed a Notice of Entry of Order as well as a Motion to Confirm the Arbitration Award, address the outstanding issues regarding whether Investor’s rights are subordinated to other creditors and, thereafter, oversee a commercially reasonable foreclosure sale (Case No: 3 :20-cv-00012-CVG-RM). It was the Company’s position that the Final Award must first be confirmed and all questions regarding the rights of Investor relative to those of other creditors must be determined before any foreclosure sale can proceed. It is further the position of the Company that the previously disclosed foreclosure sale scheduled by Investor is being conducted in a commercially unreasonable manner and that if Discover proceeded forward with the foreclosure sale it did so at its own risk. Nevertheless, on February 28, 2020, Investor advised that it conducted a sale of the Company’s assets. As the date of this report Investor failed to present a deed of sale for the alleged sale that allegedly took place as noticed. The Company filed with Virgin Island Court the motions disputing the validity of the alleged sale. On July 28, 2020, Investor filed in the State of Nevada a motion for attorneys $48,844 and costs $716. The Company filed an answer on August 11, 2020. On October 16, 2020, Investor motion was denied. This case is still pending with the Federal court and the Court has not taken any substantive action in the matter as of the date of this report.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on the Company’s financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Use of Estimates

 

Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations is based upon our CFS, which were been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The preparation of our CFS in accordance with U.S. GAAP requires us to make certain estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements, the reported amounts and classification of revenues and expenses during the periods presented, and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We evaluate our estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis and material changes in these estimates or assumptions could occur in the future. Changes in estimates are recorded on the period in which they become known. We base our estimates on historical experience and various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances and at that time, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily-apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ materially from these estimates if past experience or other assumptions do not turn out to be substantially accurate.

 

53

 

 

We believe that the accounting policies described below are critical to understanding our business, results of operations, and financial condition because they involve significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of our CFS. An accounting policy is deemed to be critical if it requires a judgment or accounting estimate to be made based on assumptions about matters that are highly uncertain, and if different estimates that could have been used, or if changes in the accounting estimates that are reasonably likely to occur periodically, could materially impact our CFS. Other significant accounting policies, primarily those with lower levels of uncertainty than those discussed below, are also critical to understanding our CFS. The notes to our CFS contain additional information related to our accounting policies and should be read in conjunction with this discussion.

 

Presentation of Financial Statements

 

The accompanying CFS were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

In the event that Latinex’s required capital has decreased below $5,000,000, Latinex is permitted to sell the pledged shares of common stock only in an amount to ensure that Latinex can satisfy the required capital levels. The Company must consent to such sale of the shares of common stock, which may not be unreasonably withheld. Upon expiration of the agreement, the remaining shares of common stock shall be returned to the Company free and clear of all liens. The Company has recorded the value of these shares of common stock as a stock loan receivable which is presented as a contra-equity account in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. At December 31, 2019, the Company wrote off the accrued interest income as Latinex did not perform any payment and the Company has no mean to enforce this payment. Latinex agreed in principle to return the pledged 4,005 restricted shares to the Company for cancellation. The 4,005 restricted shares have not yet been returned to the Company as of March 31, 2023.

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company evaluates all of its agreements to determine if such instruments have derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its FV and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the FV reported in the statements of operations. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses a weighted-average Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date. As of March 31, 2023, the Company’s only derivative financial instrument was an embedded conversion feature associated with convertible notes payable due to certain provisions that allow for a change in the conversion price based on a percentage of the Company’s stock price at the date of conversion.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

For certain of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and short-term debt, the carrying amounts approximate their fair values(“FV”) due to their short maturities.

 

FASB ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, requires disclosure of the FV of financial instruments held by the Company. FASB ASC Topic 825, Financial Instruments, defines FV, and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of FV measurement that enhances disclosure requirements for FV measures. The carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheets for receivables and current liabilities each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of their FV because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest. The three levels of valuation hierarchy are defined as follows:

 

  Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
     
  Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets in inactive markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.
     
  Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology us one or more unobservable inputs which are significant to the FV measurement.

 

The Company analyzes all financial instruments with features of both liabilities and equity under FASB ASC Topic 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity, and FASB ASC Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging.

 

For certain financial instruments, the carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for cash and current liabilities, including convertible notes payable, each qualify as a financial instrument, and are a reasonable estimate of their FV because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest.

 

The Company uses Level 2 inputs for its valuation methodology for derivative liabilities as their FV were determined by using the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model based on various assumptions. The Company’s derivative liabilities are adjusted to reflect FV at each period end, with any increase or decrease in the FV being recorded in results of operations as adjustments to FV of derivatives.

 

Treasury Stock

 

Treasury stock is recorded at cost. The re-issuance of treasury shares is accounted for on a first in, first-out basis and any difference between the cost of treasury shares and the re-issuance proceeds are charged or credited to additional paid-in capital.

Revenue Recognition

 

Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“Topic 606”), became effective for the Company on January 1, 2018. The Company’s revenue recognition disclosure reflects its updated accounting policies that are affected by this new standard. The Company applied the “modified retrospective” transition method for open contracts for the implementation of Topic 606. The Company had no significant post-delivery obligations, this new standard did not result in a material recognition of revenue on the Company’s accompanying CFS for the cumulative impact of applying this new standard. The Company made no adjustments to its previously-reported total revenues, as those periods continue to be presented in accordance with its historical accounting practices under Topic 605, Revenue Recognition.

 

Revenue is recognized under Topic 606 as follows:

 

  executed contracts with the Company’s customers that it believes are legally enforceable;

 

  identification of performance obligations in the respective contract;

 

  determination of the transaction price for each performance obligation in the respective contract;

 

  allocation the transaction price to each performance obligation; and

 

  recognition of revenue only when the Company satisfies each performance obligation.

  

These five elements, as applied to each of the Company’s revenue category, is summarized below:

 

  IT consulting services – revenue is recorded on a monthly basis as services are provided; and

 

  License fees and Royalties – revenue is recognized based on the terms of the agreement with its customer.

 

 E-Commerce sales

 

  Identify the contract(s) with a customer. ASC 606 defines a contract as “an agreement between two or more parties that creates enforceable rights and obligations”. Since this is an e-commerce sale on the Amazon of eBay websites, the Company just followed the general terms on Amazon or eBay websites and the customer entered into a contract with the Company based on the product listed on the Amazon or eBay websites;

 

  Identify the performance obligations in the contract. According to the contract, the Company is responsible for operation exclusively. The Company is entitled to all revenue which is being paid by Amazon or eBay into a designated bank account and the Company is responsible for all product acquisitions as well as shipments. The only performance obligations were the electronic products that were listed on Amazon or eBay websites and the Company determined each order is one single obligation;

 

  Determine the transaction price. The transaction price set to be the listed price on the Amazon or eBay websites.;

 

  Allocation the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract.; and

 

  Recognize revenue when the Company satisfies a performance obligation. Sales are being recognized upon shipment.
