STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

In this annual report, references to “GBT”, “GOPH”, “GTCH” or “the Company,” or “we,” or “us,” and “our” refer to GBT Technologies Inc. or f/k/a Gopher Protocol Inc. Except for the historical information contained herein, some of the statements in this report contain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. These statements are found in the sections entitled “Business,” “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” and “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.” They include statements concerning: our business strategy; expectations of market and customer response; liquidity and capital expenditures; future sources of revenues; expansion of our proposed product line; and trends in industry activity generally. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “could,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential,” “goal,” or “continue” or similar terminology. These statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, including, but not limited to, the risks outlined under “Risk Factors,” that may cause our or our industry’s actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. For example, assumptions that could cause actual results to vary materially from future results include, but are not limited to our ability to successfully develop and market our products to customers; our ability to generate customer demand for our products in our target markets; the development of our target markets and market opportunities; our ability to manufacture suitable products at a competitive cost; market pricing for our products and for competing products; the extent of increasing competition; technological developments in our target markets and the development of alternate, competing technologies in them; and sales of shares by existing shareholders. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. Unless we are required to do so under U.S. federal securities laws or other applicable laws, we do not intend to update or revise any forward-looking statements.

 

Below is a summary of material factors that make an investment in our securities speculative or risky. Importantly, this summary does not address all of the risks and uncertainties that we face. Additional discussion of the risks and uncertainties summarized in this risk factor summary, as well as other risks and uncertainties that we face, can be found under ‘Risk Factors’ in Part I, Item 1A of this Annual Report on Form 10-K. The below summary is qualified in its entirety by that more complete discussion of such risks and uncertainties. You should consider carefully the risks and uncertainties described under ‘Risk Factors’ in Part I, Item 1A of this Annual Report on Form 10-K as part of your evaluation of an investment in our securities.

 

  We have a limited operating history in an evolving industry, which makes it difficult to evaluate our future prospects and may increase the risk that we will not be successful.

 

  Our limited operating history makes it difficult for us to evaluate our future business prospects and make decisions based on those estimates of our future performance.

 

  The COVID-19 outbreak caused disruptions in our development operations, which have resulted in delays in existing projects and may have additional negative impacts on our operations.

 

  Our results of operations have not resulted in profitability and we may not be able to achieve profitability going forward.

 

  We have not generated positive cash flow from operations and our ability to generate positive cash flow is uncertain. If we are unable to generate positive cash flow or obtain sufficient capital when needed, our business and future prospects will be adversely affected and we could be forced to suspend or discontinue operations.

 

  We will require additional capital to support business growth and this capital might not be available on acceptable terms, if at all.

 

  We depend upon key personnel and need additional personnel.

 

1

 

 

  Our business requires substantial capital and if we are unable to maintain adequate cash flows from operations our profitability and financial condition will suffer and jeopardize our ability to continue operations.

 

  There is currently a limited public market for our common stock. Failure to further develop or maintain a trading market could negatively affect the value of our common stock and make it difficult or impossible for you to sell your stock.

 

  If we fail to maintain an effective system of internal controls, we may not be able to accurately report our financial results or prevent fraud. As a result, current and potential stockholders could lose confidence in our financial reporting, which would harm our business and the trading price of our stock.

 

  Because we are quoted on the OTC PINK marketplace instead of a national securities exchange, our investors may experience significant volatility in the market price of our stock and have difficulty selling their shares.

 

  Our stock price and trading volume may be volatile, which could result in substantial losses for our stockholders.

 

  We have not paid dividends in the past and have no immediate plans to pay cash dividends.

 

  Shares eligible for future sale may adversely affect the market for our Common Stock.

 

  You may experience future dilution as a result of future equity offerings.

 

  Our charter documents and Nevada law may inhibit a takeover that stockholders consider favorable.

 

  There are limitations on director/officer liability.

 

  Penny stock regulations may impose certain restrictions on marketability of our securities.

 

  FINRA sales practice requirements may limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our stock.

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.

 

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.

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.

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.

Revenue Sharing Agreement – Variable Interest Entity (VIE) – Discontinued

 

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.

 

Effective July 1, 2023 the Company terminated its joint venture revenue sharing (“Termination Agreement”) with Mahaser LTD (“Mahaser”). Until June 30, 2023, 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. The Company evaluated for the period ended on June 30, 2023, 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 December 31, 2023 and as December 31, 2022 (after elimination of intercompany transactions and balances):

Regulatory

 

The Company seeks to conduct business with US government agencies and hired a consulting firm for general guidance with the GSA (General Services Administration) application process. GSA approval status describes an organization that have been approved to sell to the US Government through the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). The GSA is an independent agency of the United States Government that was established in 1949 to help manage, approve, and facilitate government contracts, products, bids and verify that product and services properly sourced under the US Government guidelines. The GSA is the purchasing department of the US Government and lists contracts or schedules potential vendors that can bid on to get government business. To become eligible to bid on a GSA schedule, it is required to complete several important steps, among them are registering in the government’s SAM (System for Award Management), and providing previous customer contact information as a means for the GSA to perform a past performance evaluation. More information can be found on GSA web site at: https://www.gsa.gov. The Company applied and received their extension notice for SAM registration #832011626/91FW3 until May 2023. The active status makes GBT eligible to potentially contract business with US government contractors and sub-contractors, local cities or receive federal funds.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

As a Smaller Reporting Company, the Company is not required to include the disclosure under this Item 1A. Risk Factors. Despite the fact that we are not required to provide risk factors, we consider the following factors to be risks to our continued growth and development:

 

WE HAVE A LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY IN AN EVOLVING INDUSTRY, WHICH MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO EVALUATE OUR FUTURE PROSPECTS AND MAY INCREASE THE RISK THAT WE WILL NOT BE SUCCESSFUL.

 

We have a limited operating history in an evolving industry that may not develop as expected. Assessing our business and future prospects is challenging in light of the risks and difficulties we may encounter. These risks and difficulties include our ability to:

 

  accurately forecast our revenues and plan our operating expenses;

 

  successfully expand our business;

 

  assimilate our acquisitions;

 

  adapt to rapidly evolving trends in the ways consumers and businesses interact with technology;

 

  avoid interruptions or disruptions in the offering of our products and our services;

 

  develop a scalable, high-performance technology infrastructure that can efficiently and reliably handle increased usage, as well as the deployment of new features and products;

 

  hire, integrate and retain talented sales, customer service, technology and other personnel; and

 

  effectively manage rapid growth in personnel and operations; and

 

  global COVID-19 pandemic

 

If the demand for our services and/or platforms/products offered or our products under development are not finalized, our business will be harmed. We may not be able to successfully address these risks and difficulties, which could harm our business and results of operations.

 

10

 

 

OUR LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY MAKES IT DIFFICULT FOR US TO EVALUATE OUR FUTURE BUSINESS PROSPECTS AND MAKE DECISIONS BASED ON THOSE ESTIMATES OF OUR FUTURE PERFORMANCE.

 

We have a limited operating history and, as a consequence, it is difficult, if not impossible, to forecast our future results based upon our historical data. Reliance on the historical results may not be representative of the results we will achieve. Because of the uncertainties related to our limited historical operations, we may be hindered in our ability to anticipate and timely adapt to increases or decreases in revenues or expenses. If we make poor budgetary decisions as a result of unreliable historical data, we could be less profitable or continue to incur losses.

 

THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK HAS CAUSED DISRUPTIONS IN OUR DEVELOPMENT OPERATIONS, WHICH HAVE RESULTED IN DELAYS ON EXISTING PROJECTS AND MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL NEGATIVE IMPACTS ON OUR OPERATIONS

 

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 on January 25, 2021, and as such we were able to relocate our virtual offices space and resume “normal” operations.

 

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. During the fourth quarter of 2021, the omicron variants surfaced and has significantly impacted the United States and globally. However, in the event COVID-19, the omicron variant or other variant is to worsen or 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.

 

OUR RESULTS OF OPERATIONS HAVE NOT RESULTED IN PROFITABILITY AND WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE PROFITABILITY GOING FORWARD

 

The Company does not accrue or capitalize development costs (or any costs to this effect) and expense it to its profit and loss statements as required by US GAAP. As such, the Company incurred net loss of $17,771,626 for the year ended December 31, 2023. If we incur additional significant operating losses, our stock price, may decline, perhaps significantly. Our management is developing plans to alleviate the negative trends and conditions described above. Our business plan is speculative and unproven. There is no assurance that we will be successful in executing our business plan or that even if we successfully implement our business plan, that we will be able to curtail our losses now or in the future. Further, as we are an emerging enterprise, we expect that net losses will continue, and our working capital deficiency will increase.

 

11

 

 

WE HAVE NOT GENERATED POSITIVE CASH FLOW FROM OPERATIONS, AND OUR ABILITY TO GENERATE POSITIVE CASH FLOW IS UNCERTAIN. IF WE ARE UNABLE TO GENERATE POSITIVE CASH FLOW OR OBTAIN SUFFICIENT CAPITAL WHEN NEEDED, OUR BUSINESS AND FUTURE PROSPECTS WILL BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED AND WE COULD BE FORCED TO SUSPEND OR DISCONTINUE OPERATIONS.

 

Our operations have not generated positive cash flow for any period since our inception, and we have funded our operations primarily through the issuance of common stock and short-term and long-term debt and convertible debt. Our limited operating history makes an evaluation of our future prospects difficult. The actual amount of funds that we will need to meet our operating needs will be determined by a number of factors, many of which are beyond our control. These factors include the timing and volume of sales transactions, the success of our marketing strategy, market acceptance of our products, the success of our manufacturing and research and development efforts (including any unanticipated delays), our manufacturing and labor costs, the costs associated with obtaining and enforcing our intellectual property rights, regulatory changes, competition, technological developments in the market, evolving industry standards and the amount of working capital investments we are required to make.

 

Our ability to continue to operate until we are able to generate sufficient our cash flow from operations will depend on our ability to generate sufficient positive cash flow from our operations. If we are unable to generate sufficient cash flow from our operations, our business and future prospects will be adversely affected and we could be forced to suspend or discontinue operations.

 

The Company sustained a net loss of $17,771,626 and our operating activities used in cash flows of $51,342 for the year ended December 31, 2023. The Company had a working capital deficit of $31,781,634, stockholders’ deficit of $31,074,133 and an accumulated deficit of $315,993,294 at December 31, 2023.

 

WE WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL CAPITAL TO SUPPORT BUSINESS GROWTH, AND THIS CAPITAL MIGHT NOT BE AVAILABLE ON ACCEPTABLE TERMS, IF AT ALL.

 

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. Accordingly, we need to engage in equity or debt financings to secure additional funds. We expect that we have sufficient capital sources to maintain operations through the year of 2024. In order to fully implement our business plan, we will need to raise about $12,000,000 If we raise additional funds through future issuances of equity or convertible debt securities, our existing stockholders could suffer significant dilution, and any new equity securities we issue could have rights, preferences and privileges superior to those of holders of our common stock. Any debt financing that we secure in the future could involve restrictive covenants relating to our capital raising activities and other financial and operational matters, which may make it more difficult for us to obtain additional capital and to pursue business opportunities, including potential acquisitions. We may not be able to obtain additional financing on terms favorable to us, if at all. If we are unable to obtain adequate financing or financing on terms satisfactory to us when we require it, our ability to continue to support our business growth and to respond to business challenges could be impaired, and our business may be harmed.

 

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 may 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 the course 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,

 

12

 

 

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 10 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. On January 12, 2022, the Company filed registration statement for the sale of 5,500,000 shares of common stock pursuant to the Equity Financing Agreement, which was declared effective on February 11, 2022. The Company issued 463,303 shares with net proceeds of $66,942 from the Equity Financing Agreement in February 2022.

 

For year ended December 31, 2022, the Company received $231,867 as proceeds from the equity purchase agreement for issuance of 5,500,000 registered common shares. Post this issuance The Equity Financing Agreement is exhausted and not valid anymore.

 

WE DEPEND UPON KEY PERSONNEL AND NEED ADDITIONAL PERSONNEL

 

Our success depends on our inability to attract and retain key personnel including, Mansour Khatib, our CEO, and Dr. Danny Rittman, our CTO, and our inability to do so may materially and adversely affect our business operations. The loss of qualified personnel could have a material and adverse effect on our business operations. Additionally, the success of the Company’s operations will largely depend upon its ability to successfully attract and maintain competent and qualified key management personnel. As with any company with limited resources, there can be no guaranty that the Company will be able to attract such individuals or that the presence of such individuals will necessarily translate into profitability for the Company.

 

OUR BUSINESS REQUIRES SUBSTANTIAL CAPITAL, AND IF WE ARE UNABLE TO MAINTAIN ADEQUATE CASH FLOWS FROM OPERATIONS OUR PROFITABILITY AND FINANCIAL CONDITION WILL SUFFER AND JEOPARDIZE OUR ABILITY TO CONTINUE OPERATIONS

 

We require substantial capital to support our operations. If we are unable to generate adequate cash flows from our operations, maintain adequate financing or other sources of capital are not available, we could be forced to suspend, curtail or reduce our operations, which could harm our revenues, profitability, financial condition and business prospects.

 

THERE IS CURRENTLY A LIMITED PUBLIC MARKET FOR OUR COMMON STOCK. FAILURE TO FURTHER DEVELOP OR MAINTAIN A TRADING MARKET COULD NEGATIVELY AFFECT THE VALUE OF OUR COMMON STOCK AND MAKE IT DIFFICULT OR IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO SELL YOUR STOCK.

 

There is a limited public market for our Common Stock, which is traded on the OTC PINK under the symbol GTCH. We cannot give any assurances that there will ever be a mature, developed market for our common stock. Failure to further develop or maintain an active trading market could negatively affect the value of our shares and make it difficult for you to sell your shares or recover any part of your investment in us. Even if a market for our common stock does develop in a material way, the market price of our common stock may be highly volatile. In addition to the uncertainties relating to our future operating performance and the profitability of our operations, factors such as variations in our interim financial results, or various, as yet unpredictable factors, many of which are beyond our control, may have a negative effect on the market price of our common stock.

 

13

 

 

IF WE FAIL TO MAINTAIN AN EFFECTIVE SYSTEM OF INTERNAL CONTROLS, WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ACCURATELY REPORT OUR FINANCIAL RESULTS OR PREVENT FRAUD. AS A RESULT, CURRENT AND POTENTIAL STOCKHOLDERS COULD LOSE CONFIDENCE IN OUR FINANCIAL REPORTING, WHICH WOULD HARM OUR BUSINESS AND THE TRADING PRICE OF OUR STOCK.

 

Effective internal controls are necessary for us to provide reliable financial reports and effectively prevent fraud. If we cannot provide reliable financial reports or prevent fraud, our brand and operating results could be harmed. We have in the past discovered, and may in the future discover, areas of our internal controls that need improvement. For example, for the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, we reported that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to the lack of resources and the reliance on outside consultants. We intend to increase management’s review of our financials. We cannot be certain that these measures will ensure that we implement and maintain adequate controls over our financial processes and reporting in the future. Any failure to implement required new or improved controls, or difficulties encountered in their implementation, could harm our operating results or cause us to fail to meet our reporting obligations. Inferior internal controls could also cause investors to lose confidence in our reported financial information, which could have a negative effect on the trading price of our stock.

 

Additional Risks Related to Our Common Stock

 

Because we are quoted on the OTC PINK marketplace instead of a national securities exchange, our investors may experience significant volatility in the market price of our stock and have difficulty selling their shares.

 

Our Common Stock is currently quoted on the OTC Market Group’s OTC PINK marketplace under the ticker symbol “GTCH”. The OTC is a regulated quotation service that displays real-time quotes and last sale prices in over-the-counter securities. Trading in shares quoted on the OTC PINK is often thin and characterized by volatility. This volatility may be caused by a variety of factors, including the lack of readily available price quotations, the absence of consistent administrative supervision of bid and ask quotations, lower trading volume and market conditions. As a result, there may be wide fluctuations in the market price of the shares of our Common Stock for reasons unrelated to operating performance, and this volatility, when it occurs, may have a negative effect on the market price for our securities. Moreover, the OTC PINK is not a stock exchange, and trading of securities on this platform is more sporadic than the trading of securities listed on a national quotation system or stock exchange. Accordingly, our stockholders may not be able to realize a fair price from their shares when they determine to sell them or may have to hold them for a substantial period of time until the market for our Common Stock improves.

 

Our stock price and trading volume may be volatile, which could result in substantial losses for our stockholders.

 

The equity trading markets may experience periods of volatility, which could result in highly variable and unpredictable pricing of equity securities. The market price of our Common Stock could change in ways that may or may not be related to our business, our industry or our operating performance and financial condition. In addition, the trading volume in our Common Stock has been low and may fluctuate and cause significant price variations to occur. We have experienced significant volatility in the price of our stock. In addition, the stock markets in general can experience considerable price and volume fluctuations.

 

We have not paid dividends in the past and have no immediate plans to pay cash dividends.

 

We plan to reinvest all of our earnings, to the extent we have earnings, to develop and deliver our products and cover operating costs and to otherwise become and remain competitive. We do not plan to pay any cash dividends with respect to our securities in the foreseeable future. We cannot assure you that we would, at any time, generate sufficient surplus cash that would be available for distribution to the holders of our Common Stock as a dividend. Therefore, you should not expect to receive cash dividends on our Common Stock.

 

Shares eligible for future sale may adversely affect the market for our Common Stock.

 

Of the 16,813,229,180 shares of our Common Stock outstanding as of the date of this Annual Report, approximately 766,217,939 are restricted and 16,047,011,241 shares are freely tradable without restriction pursuant to Rule 144. Any substantial sale of our Common Stock pursuant to Rule 144 or pursuant to any resale prospectus may have a material adverse effect on the market price of our Common Stock.

You may experience future dilution as a result of future equity offerings.

 

To raise additional capital, we may in the future offer additional shares of our Common Stock or other securities convertible into or exchangeable for our Common Stock at prices that may not be the same as the price per share in this offering. We may sell shares or other securities in any future offering at a price per share that is lower than the price per share paid by investors in this offering, which would result in those newly issued shares being dilutive. In addition, investors purchasing shares or other securities in the future could have rights superior to existing stockholders, which could impair the value of your shares. The price per share at which we sell additional shares of our Common Stock, or securities convertible or exchangeable into shares of our Common Stock, in future transactions may be higher or lower than the price per share paid by investors in this offering.

 

Our charter documents and Nevada law may inhibit a takeover that stockholders consider favorable.

 

Provisions of our certificate of incorporation and bylaws and applicable provisions of Nevada law may delay or discourage transactions involving an actual or potential change in control or change in our management, including transactions in which stockholders might otherwise receive a premium for their shares, or transactions that our stockholders might otherwise deem to be in their best interests. The provisions in our certificate of incorporation and bylaws:

 

  limit who may call stockholder meetings;

 

  do not provide for cumulative voting rights; and

 

  provide that all vacancies may be filled by the affirmative vote of a majority of directors then in office, even if less than a quorum.

 

There are limitations on director/officer liability.

 

As permitted by Nevada law, our certificate of incorporation limits the liability of our directors for monetary damages for breach of a director’s fiduciary duty except for liability in certain instances. As a result of our charter provision and Nevada law, shareholders may have limited rights to recover against directors for breach of fiduciary duty. In addition, our certificate of incorporation provides that we shall indemnify our directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted by law.

 

Penny stock regulations may impose certain restrictions on marketability of our securities.

 

The SEC adopted regulations which generally define a “penny stock” to be any equity security that has a market price of less than $5 per share or an exercise price of less than $5 per share, subject to certain exceptions. A security listed on a national securities exchange is exempt from the definition of a penny stock. Our Common Stock is not currently listed on a national security exchange. Our Common Stock is therefore subject to rules that impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell such securities to persons other than established customers and accredited investors (generally those with assets in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000, or $300,000 together with their spouse). For transactions covered by such rules, the broker-dealer must make a special suitability determination for the purchase of such securities and have received the purchaser’s written consent to the transaction prior to the purchase.

 

Additionally, for any transaction involving a penny stock, unless exempt, the rules require the delivery, prior to the transaction, of a risk disclosure document mandated by the SEC relating to the penny stock market. The broker-dealer must also disclose the commission payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative, current quotations for the securities and, if the broker-dealer is the sole market maker, the broker dealer must disclose this fact and the broker-dealer’s presumed control over the market. Finally, monthly statements must be sent disclosing recent price information for the penny stock held in the account and information on the limited market in penny stocks. Broker-dealers must wait two business days after providing buyers with disclosure materials regarding a security before effecting a transaction in such security. Consequently, the “penny stock” rules restrict the ability of broker-dealers to sell our securities and affect the ability of investors to sell our securities in the secondary market and the price at which such purchasers can sell any such securities, thereby affecting the liquidity of the market for our Common Stock.

 

15

 

 

Stockholders should also be aware that, according to the SEC, the market for penny stocks has suffered in recent years from patterns of fraud and abuse. Such patterns include:

 

  control of the market for the security by one or more broker-dealers that are often related to the promoter or issuer;

 

  manipulation of prices through prearranged matching of purchases and sales and false and misleading press releases;

 

  “boiler room” practices involving high pressure sales tactics and unrealistic price projections by inexperienced sales persons;

 

  excessive and undisclosed bid-ask differentials and markups by selling broker-dealers; and

 

  the wholesale dumping of the same securities by promoters and broker-dealers after prices have been manipulated to a desired level, along with the inevitable collapse of those prices with consequent investor losses.

 

FINRA sales practice requirements may limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our stock.

 

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (referred to as FINRA) has rules requiring that, in recommending an investment to a customer, a broker-dealer must have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer. Prior to recommending speculative or low-priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer’s financial status, tax status, investment objectives and other information. Under interpretations of these rules, FINRA has indicated its belief that there is a high probability that speculative or low-priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. If these FINRA requirements are applicable to us or our securities, they may make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend that at least some of their customers buy our Common Stock, which may limit the ability of our stockholders to buy and sell our common stock and could have an adverse effect on the market for and price of our common stock.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

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.

 

Relate to 2022:

 

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, 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,

 

17

 

 

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. Based on Discover notice in writing of selling all the Company’s assets, the Company intend to invoice Discover for that sale and offset the settlement amount at the end of the year.

 

On January 25, 2024 Virgin Island Court ordered that Final Award is confirmed.

 

Relate to 2023:

 

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. As of filing date, the Company has not collected any amount issued by the Court from Terry Taylor and TTSG.

 

Stock Loan Receivable

 

On January 8, 2019, the Company entered into a Stock Pledge Agreement with Latin American Exchange Latinex Casa de Cambio, S.A., a Costa Rica corporation (“Latinex”), to provide that Latinex may maintain its required regulatory capital as required by various regulators. The Company pledged 4,006 restricted shares of its common stock valued at $7,610,147 (based on the closing price on the grant date) for three years for an annual payment of $375,000 paid in quarterly installments of $93,750. In lieu of cash payment, Latinex may pay the Company in virtual currency of WISE Network S.A. valued at a 50% discount of its offering price of $10 per token. 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 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 December 31, 2023.

 

Metaverse Agreements

 

On June 10, 2022, the Company, entered into a Joint Venture and Territorial License Agreement (the “Metaverse Agreement”) with Ildar Gainulin and Maria Belova (collectively, the “Licensor”). Under the Metaverse Agreement, the parties formed Metaverse Kit Corp., a Nevada corporation (“Metaverse Kit”). The purpose of Metaverse Kit was to develop, maintain and support source codes for its proprietary technologies and comprehensive platform that combines a core virtual reality platform and an extended set of real-world functions to provide a metaverse experience initially within the area of sports and then expanding into virtual worlds of entertainment, live events, gaming,

communications and other cross over product opportunities (the “Meta Portfolio”). Under the Metaverse Agreement, Licensor agreed to provide Metaverse Kit with the licensed technology and expertise. In connection therewith, the parties entered an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Metaverse APA”) concurrently with the Metaverse Agreement whereby Licensor sold Metaverse Kit all source codes pertaining to the Meta Portfolio. Further, Licensor provided an exclusive license to Metaverse Kit throughout the world for the invented product/service and the related platforms relating to the Meta Portfolio and to use the know how to develop, manufacture, sell, market and distribute the Meta Portfolio throughout the world. The Company was required to contribute 500,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company (“GBT Shares”) to Metaverse Kit. Licensor and the Company were to each own 50% of Metaverse Kit. The Company pledged its 50% ownership in Metaverse Kit to Igor 1 Corp. to secure a convertible note held by Igor 1 Corp. The Company was to appoint two directors and Licensor was allowed to appoint one director of Metaverse Kit. In addition, Metaverse Kit, Licensor and Elentina Group, LLC (“Elentina”) entered into a Consulting Agreements in which IGBM and Elentina, each were engaged to provide services for $25,000 per month payable quarterly which Metaverse Kit has the option to pay in shares of common stock calculated by the amount owed divided by the Company’s 10-day VWAP. Licensor and Elentina were to provide services in connection with the development of the business as well as Metaverse Kit’s capital raising efforts. The term of the Consulting Agreement was two years. The closing of the Metaverse Agreement occurred on June 13, 2022.

 

On March 14, 2023, the Company received a counter signed Settlement Agreement and Release by Licensor dated March 2, 2023 (“Settlement Agreement”). Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, the parties agreed that Metaverse Agreement, the Metaverse APA and the Consulting Agreement are void and cancelled.

Penny Stock

 

Our common stock is considered “penny stock” under the rules of the SEC under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The SEC adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in penny stocks. Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a price of less than $5, other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ Stock Market System, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or quotation system. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the Commission, that:

 

contains a description of the nature and level of risks in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading;

 

contains a description of the broker’s or dealer’s duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to a violation to such duties or other requirements of Securities’ laws; contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and the significance of the spread between the bid and ask price;

 

contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions;
   
defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and

 

contains such other information and is in such form, including language, type, size and format, as the Commission shall require by rule or regulation.

 

The broker-dealer also must provide, prior to effecting any transaction in a penny stock, the customer with:

 

bid and offer quotations for the penny stock;

 

the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction;

 

the number of shares to which such bid and ask prices apply, or other comparable information relating to the depth and liquidity of the marker for such stock; and

 

monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account.

 

20

 

 

In addition, the penny stock rules that require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules; the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written acknowledgement of the receipt of a risk disclosure statement, a written agreement to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitably statement.

 

These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity in the secondary market for our stock.

Pursuant to the 2023 Tokenize Agreement, as a result of the contribution of the Technology Portfolio by Tokenize and the subsequent contribution of services for the development of the Technology Portfolio by Tokenize and Magic, GBT Tokenize has been able to continue in operation, which has benefited the Company despite its contribution of 166 million shares of common stock valued at approximately $50,000. In order to maintain its 50% ownership interest in GBT Tokenize, the Company agreed to contribute its portfolio of intellectual property to GBT Tokenize and issue to GBT Tokenize 1,000 shares of Series I Preferred Stock (the “Series I Stock”) with a stated value of $35,000 per share which is convertible into common stock of the Company by dividing the stated value by the conversion price of $0.0035, which, if converted in full would result in the issuance of 10 billion shares of common stock of the Company. Further, the Series I Stock will vote on an as converted basis.

 

As of December 31, 2023, there are 1,000 shares of Series I Preferred Shares outstanding.

 

We claimed exemption from registration under the Securities Act for the sales and issuances of these securities under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and/or Regulation D promulgated thereunder, in that such sales and issuances did not involve a public offering. All of the purchasers of unregistered securities for which we relied on Section 4(a)(2) and/or Regulation D represented that they were accredited investors as defined under the Securities Act. We claimed such exemption on the basis that (a) the purchasers in each case represented that they intended to acquire the securities for investment only and not with a view to the distribution thereof and that they either received adequate information about the registrant or had access, through employment or other relationships, to such information and (b) appropriate legends were affixed to the stock certificates issued in such transactions.

Recent Developments

 

Due to litigation with Discover Fund, in April 2020, GBT was forced to make the decision of changing the Company’s direction by developing a portfolio of intellectual property within the area of microchips technology and design. The years 2019 and 2020 were compounded with recuring legal issues and COVID-19 restrictions creating extremely difficult times and challenges. GBT focused on its core competency in the area of Research & Development (“R&D”) creating an IP portfolio combined of patents, trade secrets and prototypes further defining GBT’s new mission. GBT is now developing IP in areas which will leverage its competencies and experience with the goal of diversifying in various fast-growing semiconductor industries in today’s leading, growing market segments.

 

As described in Part I; Item 1, On July 20, 2023, the Company through Greenwich, entered into an Amended and Restated Joint Venture (the “2023 Tokenize Agreement”) with Magic Internacional Argentina FC, S.L. (“Magic”) and GBT Tokenize Corp (“GBT Tokenize”). Via vis this 2023 Tokenize Agreement, GBT will focus on expanding the families of various patents and concentrating on strategic potential partnerships with the goal of integrating these technologies into a broad marketplace, one that will potentially diversify the risk within these areas:

 

  1. Build a portfolio pipeline of IP related to microchip technology.

 

  2. Seek to actively introduce this new technology to strategic partners, large companies and VC’s creating market opportunities.

 

  3. Using market diversification to create access to new fields and future growth.

 

GBT Tokenize Joint Venture - 2023 Tokenize Agreement

 

The 2023 Tokenize Agreement restated and replaced the 2022 Tokenize Agreement. Pursuant to the 2023 Tokenize Agreement, as a result of the contribution of the Technology Portfolio by Tokenize and the subsequent contribution of services for the development of the Technology Portfolio by Tokenize and Magic, GBT Tokenize has been able to continue in operation. On November 2, 2023, the Company received a notice of completion (notice # 508205896) of the recoding of assignment for its portfolio of intellectual property to GBT Tokenize. The assignment was recorded by the assignment recording branch of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

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.

 

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 has been expanding 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 were 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 has caused disruptions in our development operations, which have resulted in delays on exiting projects. A prolonged disruption or 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 will be effectively contained, nor can we predict the severity and duration of its impact. 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.

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

Management is currently evaluating the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have a negative effect on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations, and/or search for a target company, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of these financial statements. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

In February 2022, the Russian Federation and Belarus commenced a military action with the country of Ukraine. As a result of this action, various nations, including the United States, have instituted economic sanctions against the Russian Federation and Belarus. Further, the impact of this action and related sanctions on the world economy are not determinable as of the date of these financial statements. The specific impact on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows is also not determinable as of the date of these financial statements.

 

In October 2023, the Hamas Terror Organization attacked the Southern part of Israel, which in turn, commenced a military action with Gaza Strip. As a result, these actions, have created and are expected to create global economic consequences. The specific impact on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows is also not determinable as of the date of these financial statements.

 

Consideration of Inflation Reduction Act Excise Tax

 

On August 16, 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (the “IR Act”) was signed into federal law. The IR Act provides for, among other things, a new U.S. federal 1% excise tax on certain repurchases of stock by publicly traded U.S. domestic corporations and certain U.S. domestic subsidiaries of publicly traded foreign corporations occurring on or after January 1, 2023. The excise tax is imposed on the repurchasing corporation itself, not its shareholders from which shares are repurchased. The amount of the excise tax is generally 1% of the fair market value of the shares repurchased at the time of the repurchase. However, for purposes of calculating the excise tax, repurchasing corporations are permitted to net the fair market value of certain new stock issuances against the fair market value of stock repurchases during the same taxable year. In addition, certain exceptions apply to the excise tax. The U.S. Department of the Treasury (the “Treasury”) has been given authority to provide regulations and other guidance to carry out and prevent the abuse or avoidance of the excise tax.

Investment Company Act 1940

 

Under the current rules and regulations of the SEC we are not deemed an investment company for purposes of the Investment Company Act; however, on March 30, 2022, the SEC proposed new rules (the “Proposed Rules”) relating, among other matters, to the circumstances in which SPACs such as the Company could potentially be subject to the Investment Company Act and the regulations thereunder. The Proposed Rules provide a safe harbor for companies from the definition of “investment company” under Section 3(a)(1)(A) of the Investment Company Act, provided that a company satisfies certain criteria.

 

The Investment Company Act defines an investment company as any issuer which (i) is or holds itself out as being engaged primarily, or proposes to engage primarily, in the business of investing, reinvesting, or trading in securities; (ii) is engaged or proposes to engage in the business of issuing face-amount certificates of the installment type, or has been engaged in such business and has any such certificate outstanding; or (iii) is engaged or proposes to engage in the business of investing, reinvesting, owning, holding, or trading in securities, and owns or proposes to acquire investment securities having a value exceeding 40% of the value of its total assets (exclusive of Government securities and cash items) on an unconsolidated basis.

Net loss (income)  $(17,771,626)  $5,323,856   $(22,977,292)   (434%)

  

The Consulting income for both the years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 was $0 and $90,000. Sales are derived from providing IT consulting services and the services were terminated in 2023.

 

Operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2022 were $1,740,221, compared to $2,847,513 for the same period in 2022. The decrease of $1,107,292 or 37% was principally due to no impairment of assets, decrease in marketing expenses of $122,907, decrease in general and administrative expenses of $410,372, and decrease in professional expenses of $735,376 for the year ended December 31, 2022.

 

Other expense for the year ended December 31, 2023 was $15,993,020, an decrease of $24,158,540 or 297% from $8,122,346 for the same period in 2022. The decrease is principally due to i) a increase of licensing income of $49,590; ii) reduction of amortization of debt discounts by $119,314; iii) reduction of change in FV of derivative liability by $20,353,852; iv) reduction in interest expense and financing costs of $1,612,185; and v) gain on debt settlement of $315,297.

Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2023 was $17,771,626 compared to the net income of $5,323,856 for the same period in 2022 due to the factors described above.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying CFS have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has an accumulated deficit of $315,993,294 and has a working capital deficit of $31,781,634 as of December 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.

 

Our cash was $529 and $13,058 at December 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Cash used in operating activities during the year ended December 31, 2023 was $51,341, compared to $231,874 used in operating activities during the same period in 2022. The amount used in operating activities for the year ended December 31 2022 was primarily related to a net income of $5,323,856 and offset by amortization of debt discount of $362,011, excess of debt discount and financing costs of $34,175, change in FV of derivative liability of $2,795,870, change in FV of market equity security of $290,538, gain on debt settlement of $3,012,633, and net working capital increase of $3,199,627. 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 $31,781,634 at December 31, 2023.

 

The amount used in operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2023 was primarily related to a net loss of $17,771,626 offset by amortization of debt discount of $322,933, excess of debt discount and financing costs of $1,462,446, change in FV of derivative liability of $13,759,482, gain on debt extinguishment of $315,297, loss on loss of control of $38,385, shares issued for services of 80,000, change in fair value of market equity security of $10,992, and net working capital deficit increase of $13,259,588.

 

Cash flows used in investing activities were $0 during the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to $275,000 for the same period in 2022. The decrease is due to no investment in marketable securities during the year ended December 31, 2023.

 

Cash from financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2023 was $38,813, compared to $364,826 for the same period in 2022. The increase is due to the issuance of convertible notes in 2023 of $113,260 and issuance of notes payable of $106,616, which is offset by the repayment of notes payable of $79,070 and repayment of related party of $27,375 and a repayment of convertible note of $39,043. Cash from financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2022 was due to the issuance of convertible notes and related party in 2022 of $1,056,227 and proceeds from sales of common stock of $231,865 offset with the issuance of notes receivable of $190,000 and repayments to related party of $694,225.

 

We obtained a net loss of $17,771,626 for the year ended December 31, 2023. In addition, we had a working capital deficit of $31,781,634 and accumulated deficit of $315,993,294 at December 31, 2023.

 

$10,000,000 for GBT Technologies S. A. acquisition

 

In accordance with the acquisition of GBT-CR the Company issued a convertible note in the principal amount of $10,000,000. The convertible note bears interest of 6% and is payable at maturity on December 31, 2021. At the election of the holder, the 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). This convertible note may convert into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price equal to 85% of the lowest trading price with a 20-day look back immediately preceding the date of conversion and therefore recorded as derivative liability.

2021, the Company, Gonzalez, GBT-CR and IGOR 1 Corp entered into a Mutual Release and Settlement Agreement and Irrevocable Assignment of outstanding balance plus accrued interest (the “Gonzalez Agreement”). 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. As a result of the change in terms of this convertible note, the Company took a charge related to the modification of debt of $13,777,480 during the year ended December 31, 2021. This convertible note is recorded as derivative liability because of the discounted price on conversion.

 

During the period ended December 31, 2023, IGOR 1 converted $1,182,535 of the convertible note into 6,309,235,294 shares of the Company’s common stock.

Critical Accounting Policies and Use of Estimates

 

Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations is based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The preparation of our financial statements 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.

 

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 financial statements. An accounting 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 financial statements. Other significant accounting policies, primarily those with lower levels of uncertainty than those discussed below, are also critical to understanding our financial statements. The notes to our financial statements contain additional information related to our accounting policies and should be read in conjunction with this discussion.

The Company accounts for marketable equity 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 twelve 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.

 

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 – (relate to interim reporting as this segment was discontinued)

 

  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;

 

33

 

 

  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. On January 28, 2022 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 - $19,810 been credited as unearned revenue until court final decision. The Company has $0 and $48,921 of unearned revenue at December 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 September 30, 2023. The contract liabilities as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 was $0 and $41,444, respectively.

 

On or about May 10, 2023 TGHI filed with the SEC Form 15 choosing to become a non-reporting entity. As such the Company void its entire contract liability with TGHI.

 

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 December 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 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:

 

34

 

 

  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 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.

 

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.

EVALUATION OF DISCLOSURE CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

We maintain a system of disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Securities Exchange Act Rule 15d-15I) that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports under the Exchange Act, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods required under the SEC’s rules and forms and that the information is gathered and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (Principal Executive and Financial Officer) to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

As required by SEC Rule 15d-15(b), our Chief Executive Officer (Principal Executive and Financial Officer), carried out an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of our management, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 15d-14 as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on the foregoing evaluation, our management concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are not effective in timely alerting management to material information required to be included in our periodic SEC filings and to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our periodic SEC filings is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (Principal Executive and Financial Officer) to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

MANAGEMENT’S ANNUAL REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING

 

Our management, consisting of our Chief Executive Officer (Principal Executive and Financial Officer), is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f), is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, our principal executive and principal financial officers and effected by our Board of Directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, based on criteria established in Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

  Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;

 

  Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of our financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors; and

 

  Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use of disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, ICFR reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. All internal control systems, no matter how well designed, have inherent limitations. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation.

 

Our management assessed the effectiveness of our ICFR reporting as of December 31, 2023. Based on this assessment, management believes that as of December 31, 2023, our ICFR reporting is not effective based on those criteria.

 

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

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the shareholders and the board of directors of GBT Technologies, Inc.

GBT Technologies Inc.

2450 Colorado Ave., Suite 100E,

Santa Monica, CA 90404

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of GBT Technologies, Inc. the "Company") as of December 31, 2023, the related statement of operations, stockholders' equity (deficit), and cash flows for the year then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the "financial statements"). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2023, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

 

Substantial Doubt about the Company’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company has accumulated deficit of $ 315,993,294 as of December 31, 2023 and has incurred recurring operating losses. These conditions raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

  

Basis for Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's financial statements based on our audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) ("PCAOB") and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud.

 

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

Critical Audit Matter

 

The critical audit matter communicated below is a matter arising from the current-period audit of the financial statements that was communicated or required to be communicated to the audit committee and that (1) relates to accounts or disclosures that are material to the financial statements and (2) involved our especially challenging, subjective, or complex judgments. The communication of critical audit matters does not alter in any way our opinion on the financial statements, taken as a whole, and we are not, by communicating the critical audit matter below, providing a separate opinion on the critical audit matter or on the accounts or disclosures to which it relates.

 

The company is involved in significant litigation related to debt settlement. The company has complex derivative instruments that require fair value measurement and accounting for potential liabilities. Company liabilities for legal $4,090,057 and derivative $14,116,062 is recorded and shown separately under current liabilities.

 

The audit team identified the litigation and derivative liability as critical audit matters due to their materiality and complexity, requiring significant auditor attention and judgment.

 

1. Litigation Assessment: We assessed the company's litigation disclosures, legal opinions, and potential outcomes. Our audit procedures included, among others, obtaining a list of litigation Company’s legal counsel, identifying material litigations from the aforementioned list and performing inquiries with the said counsel, obtaining and reading the underlying documents to assess the assumptions used by management in arriving at the conclusions, verifying the disclosures related to provisions and contingent liabilities in the financial statements to assess consistency. Accrued settlements discussed in Note 10.

 

Considering the judgement involved in determining the need to make a provision or disclose litigation, the matter is considered a Critical Audit Matter

 

2. Derivative Liability Valuation: The auditors performed detailed testing of the fair value measurement of derivative instruments. This included evaluating the valuation models used, assessing market inputs, and considering the impact of potential liabilities on the company's financial statements.

 

Convertible notes payable discussed in Note 10 have a conversion price that can be adjusted based on the Company’s stock price which results in the conversion feature being recorded as a derivative liability. The Company uses a weighted average Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions to measure the FV of derivative liability in Note 14. The outcome fair value of derivative liabilities could have a significant impact on the company's financial statements and disclosures. We focused on ensuring the accuracy and completeness of these key financial statement elements.

 

Considering the calculation using valuation model used in determining the need to make provision is a matter considered a Critical Audit Matter.

 

We conclude that the litigation and derivative liability met the criteria for being critical audit matters due to their materiality, complexity, and the level of judgment and estimation involved in their assessment.

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. Effective July 1, 2023, the Company agreed to terminate the RSA with Mahaser Ltd.

 

On July 20, 2023, the Company through its wholly owned subsidiary, Greenwich International Holdings, a Costa Rica corporation (“Greenwich”), entered into an Amended and Restated Joint Venture (the “2023 Tokenize Agreement”) with Magic Internacional Argentina FC, S.L. (“Magic”) and GBT Tokenize Corp (“GBT Tokenize”). GBT Tokenize has developed a vital device based on the Technology Portfolio that is ready for commercialization, as well as certain derivative technologies, which positioned GBT Tokenize to further develop or license certain code sources. On April 3, 2023, GBT Tokenize entered its first commercial transaction to date through the sale of the Avant-AI! technology that been developed by GBT Tokenize, based on the Technology Portfolio.

GBT TECHNOLOGIES INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2023 and 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.

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.
