FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

Except for statements of historical fact, some information in this document contains “forward-looking statements” that involve substantial risks and uncertainties. You can identify these forward-looking statements by words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “plans,” “potential,” “projects,” “continuing,” “ongoing,” “expects,” “management believes,” “we believe,” “we intend” or the negative of these words or other variations on these words or comparable terminology. The statements that contain these or similar words should be read carefully because these statements discuss our future expectations, contain projections of our future results of operations or of our financial position, or state other forward-looking information. We believe that it is important to communicate our future expectations to our investors. However, there may be events in the future that we are not able accurately to predict or control. Further, we urge you to be cautious of the forward-looking statements which are contained in this registration statement because they involve risks, uncertainties and other factors affecting our operations, market growth, service, products and licenses. The factors listed in the sections captioned “Risk Factors” and “Description of Business,” as well as other cautionary language in this registration statement and events in the future may cause our actual results and achievements, whether expressed or implied, to differ materially from the expectations we describe in our forward-looking statements. We operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks emerge from time to time. It is not possible for us to predict all of those risks, nor can we assess the impact of all of those risks on our business or the extent to which any factor may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. The forward-looking statements in this registration statement are based on assumptions management believes are reasonable. However, due to the uncertainties associated with forward-looking statements, you should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Further, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and unless required by law, we expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to publicly update any of them in light of new information, future events, or otherwise. The occurrence of any of the events described as risk factors or other future events could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial position. Since our common stock is considered a “penny stock,” we are ineligible to rely on the safe harbor for forward-looking statements provided in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

Item 1. Business

 

History and Prior Operations

 

SMC Entertainment, Inc. (“SMC” or the “Company”) was incorporated in Nevada on January 23, 1998, under the name of Professional Recovery Systems, Ltd.

 

SMC is a versatile holding company focused on acquisition and support of proven commercialized financial services and technology (Fintech) companies. SMC has assembled a team of individuals adept at solving market needs, primarily within the merger and acquisition business landscape.

 

On March 1, 2021, the Company rescinded its agreement with FiberSKY Networks, Inc. (“FiberSKY”). The Company issued 2,000,000 shares of common stock to Ted Lasser, a controlling person of FiberSKY, for consideration of the cancellation.

 

On March 25, 2021, the Company terminated its agreement with WiMundo. The Company received a waiver of share issuance for the 20,000,000 shares of common stock never issued to WiMundo. The Company issued 1,500,000 shares each to two individuals related to the WiMundo.

 

On March 30, 2021, the Company sold, transferred and assigned all rights and ownership to SMC’s wholly owned subsidiary iPTerra Technologies, Inc. (“iPTerra”), iPMine software intellectual property (“iPMine-IP”), and Aktiv-Trak software intellectual property (Aktiv-Trak-IP”) to Wyoming-based privately held Aktiv-Trak, Inc. (“Aktiv-Trak”).

 

On October 12, 2021, the Company announced it entered in discussion with the former members of Spectrum Entertainment LLC (“Spectrum”) to rescind SMC’s acquisition of Spectrum. As part of the rescission agreement, SMC is seeking (i) the repayment of $145,274.93 which includes payments made to Spectrum’s lenders, legal and accounting fees paid by the Company; and (ii) the return and cancellation of 40,000,000 common shares issued to Spectrum members as consideration for acquiring Spectrum. The Company’s acquisition of Spectrum was initiated, lead, and concluded by the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer.

 

On November 2, 2021, the Company filed a Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) filing in the states of Michigan and Wisconsin against Spectrum to secure its rightful ownership until Spectrum repays amounts owed and the return of 40,000,000 shares for cancellation. The Company took these extra measures to secure its ownership title, protect and preserve shareholders equity.

 

In settlement of the dispute between the Company and Spectrum, on January 20, 2022, the 40,000,000 shares of common stock originally issued to MICRME LLC were cancelled and returned to the Company. Spectrum’s majority member, Mr. Daniel Barbacovi, formed MICRME LLC in 2021 and requested the 40,000,000 shares of common stock to be issued to MICRME LLC.

 

On December 12, 2022, the Company entered into a Rescission and Release Agreement with Genesis Financial, Inc (“GFL”), that effectively terminated its Stock Purchase Agreement, that was executed on November 18, 2021. Per the terms of the Agreement GFL agreed to pay a rescission fee of $300,000, $50,000 of which was to be paid within 21 days and the balance within 60 days. As certain requirements to complete the acquisition were never completed, there was never a formal closing and the financial statements of the Company were never consolidated, the transaction has been unwound and is not reflected in the financial statements of the Company.

Present Operations

 

On April 21, 2023, the Company completed its acquisition of AI-enabled wealth management technology platform provider, Fyniti Global Equities EBT Inc. (“Fyniti”). Summary of acquisition agreement:

 

The aggregate purchase price to be paid by the Company to Fyniti will be Twenty-five Million Dollars ($25,000,000.00) to be paid by delivery of Two Million, Five Hundred Thousand (2,500,000) unregistered shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s $10.00 Series B Preferred Stock;

 

The Preferred Stock is convertible into the Company’s common stock at a discount of ten percent (10%) to the preceding 10-day weighted average price prior to the conversion date;

 

The Company agrees to raise up to $2,000,000 with $250,000 to be paid to Fyniti upon the Closing. The balance of the $2,000,000 raise will be paid to Fyniti in quarterly installments of $250,000 based on the milestone achievements. The Company has paid $50,000 of the $250,000 commitment. The Company is in discussions with a number of investors to raise the balance of the commitment. In addition, the Company is still waiting to be receive $300,000 from GFL for expenses incurred by the Company.

 

The Company extends a consulting agreement to Mr. Jayakumar Gopalan; refer to Exhibit 10.9

 

The Company does not consider the transaction a related party transaction, as the terms were negotiated at arm’s length and did not result in change of control. Fyniti operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

 

Our current business operation is conducted thru our only wholly owned subsidiary asset, Fyniti Global Equities EBT Inc. (“Fyniti”) (www.fyniti.com, www.fynitiiq.com). Fyniti is a Fintech developer and provider of technology that combines Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) driven Quantitative investing (IQ Engine) with AI-enabled wealth management Electronic Block Trading (“EBT”) technology. EBT is focused in democratizing Basket Trading, Direct Indexing, Tax Loss Harvesting and bringing Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs) to the upper end of the retail segment as well as the lower to middle market financial institutions. Fyniti’s IQ Engine is an AI driven contextual analyzer that creates a repository of all equity research. Fyniti continues to embark on its journey to create next-generation technology offerings.

Trends in Our Addressable Market

 

The ETFs are an $8 trillion dollar market worldwide with over 80% being passive ETFs. Some of the issues with passive ETFs are:
 
  Tax: does not offer tax efficiency
       
  Liquidity: Low liquidity
       
  Trends: Inability to exploit short term trends and themes
       
  Cost: Cost Prohibitive despite 80% passively managed ETFs

 

Basket Trading is a portfolio management strategy used by Investment Firms and Institutional Traders to purchase or sell a large number of securities at the same time.

 

The wealth management platform market is roughly $1.2 trillion worldwide. The EBT market is forecasted to generate $6.2 billion in fees and presents a great opportunity for using AI/ML driven portfolio management to replicate passive ETFs.

 

Our Competitive Advantages

 

With the help of AI and Quant algorithms, Fyniti Baskets will offer the following advantages:

 

  Tax Loss Harvesting
  Reduced Fees
  1-Click Order Execution
  Direct Indexing Investment
  Event / Trend based Investing
  Value / Faith based investing
  Actively managed by Subject Matter Experts

Marketing Strategy

 

Our go-to market timeline for public launch is end of Q4/2023. We are currently exploring early adopters to partner with for product beta testing.
     
Our marketing strategy is multi-fold and comprises the following components:
     
  Direct to retail investors utilizing social media (Twitter, LinkedIn, FB, etc.)
     
  Small-medium CPA firms with clients looking for tax loss harvesting
     
  Financial institutions including banks and broker/dealers exploring to offer our platform to their clients. Two possible models; either hosted by financial institutions or offered as a cloud-based SaaS (Software as a Service).

 

It’s critical for us to deploy our platform with early adopters to validate our technology. Equally critical, we will require the capital to product official launch.

 

Employees

 

SMC currently has five (5) full time employees plus seven (7) full time contractors. Our officers currently work approximately 35 hours per week on the Company’s business.

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

You should carefully consider the risks described below together with all of the other information included in this registration statement before making an investment decision with regard to our securities. The statements contained in or incorporated herein that are not historic facts are forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in or implied by forward-looking statements. If any of the following risks actually occurs, our business, financial condition or results of operations could be harmed. In that case, you may lose all or part of your investment. In addition to other information in this registration statement and in other filings we make with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the following risk factors should be carefully considered in evaluating our business as they may have a significant impact on our business, operating results and financial condition. If any of the following risks actually occurs, our business, financial condition, results of operations and future prospects could be materially and adversely affected. Because of the following factors, as well as other variables affecting our operating results, past financial performance should not be considered as a reliable indicator of future performance and investors should not use historical trends to anticipate results or trends in future periods.

Risks Related to Our Business

 

WE HAVE A LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY.

 

The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on January 23, 1998. The Company has limited operating history with which you can evaluate its business and prospects. An investor in the Company must consider its business and prospects in light of the risks, uncertainties and difficulties frequently encountered by early-stage companies, including limited capital, delays in product development, possible marketing and sales obstacles and delays, inability to gain customer and merchant acceptance or inability to achieve significant distribution of our products and services to customers. The Company cannot be certain that it will successfully address these risks. Its failure to address any of these risks could have a material adverse effect on its business.

 

WE ARE NOT PROFITABLE AND MAY NEVER BE PROFITABLE.

 

Since inception through the present, we have been dependent on raising capital to support our working capital needs. During this same period, we have recorded net accumulated losses and are yet to achieve profitability. Our ability to achieve profitability depends upon many factors, including its ability to develop and commercialize our websites. There can be no assurance that we will ever achieve any significant revenues or profitable operations. The Company has suffered recurring losses since inception and has no assurance of future profitability. The Company will continue to require financing from external sources to finance its operating and investing activities until sufficient positive cash flows from operations can be generated. There is no assurance that financing or profitability will be achieved, accordingly, there is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements of the Company do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

 

OUR OPERATING EXPENSES EXCEED OUR REVENUES AND WILL LIKELY CONTINUE TO DO SO FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.

 

We are in an early stage of our development and we have not generated any revenues to offset our operating expenses. Our operating expenses will likely continue to exceed our operating income for the foreseeable future, until such time as we are able to monetize our brands and generate substantial revenues, particularly as we undertake payment of the increased costs of operating as a public company.

 

WE WILL NEED ADDITIONAL CAPITAL, WHICH MAY BE DIFFICULT TO RAISE AS A RESULT OF OUR LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY OR ANY NUMBER OF OTHER REASONS.

 

We expect that we will have adequate financing for the next 8-10 months. However, in the event that we exceed our expected growth, we would need to raise additional capital. There is no assurance that additional equity or debt financing will be available to us when needed, on acceptable terms or even at all. Our limited operating history makes investor evaluation and an estimation of our future performance substantially more difficult. As a result, investors may be unwilling to invest in us or such investment may be on terms or conditions which are not acceptable. In the event that we are not able to secure financing, we may have to scale back our growth plans or cease operations.

 

WE HAVE NOT ADOPTED VARIOUS CORPORATE GOVERNANCE MEASURES, AND AS A RESULT STOCKHOLDERS MAY HAVE LIMITED PROTECTIONS AGAINST INTERESTED DIRECTOR TRANSACTIONS, CONFLICTS OF INTEREST AND SIMILAR MATTERS.

 

Certain Federal legislation, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, has resulted in the adoption of various corporate governance measures designed to promote the integrity of corporate management and the securities markets. Because our securities are not yet listed on a national securities exchange, we are not required to adopt these corporate governance measures and have not done so voluntarily in order to avoid incurring the additional costs associated with such measures. Among these measures is the establishment of independent committees of the Board of Directors. However, to the extent a public market develops for our securities, such legislation will require us to make changes to our current corporate governance practices. Those changes may be costly and time-consuming. Furthermore, the absence of the governance measures referred to above with respect to our Company may leave our shareholders with more limited protection in connection with interested director transactions, conflicts of interest and similar matters.

 

7

 

 

WE MAY BE UNABLE TO DEVELOP NEW PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW PRODUCTS AND SERVICES MAY EXPOSE US TO ADDITIONAL COSTS OR OPERATIONAL RISK.

 

Our financial performance depends, in part, on its ability to develop, market and manage new products and services. The development and introduction of new products and services require continued innovative efforts and may require significant time and resources as well as ongoing support and investment. Substantial risk and uncertainties are associated with the introduction of new products and services, including the implementation of new and appropriate operational controls and procedures, shifting client and market preferences, the introduction of competing products or services and compliance with regulatory requirements.

 

WE MAY BECOME SUBJECT TO LEGAL PROCEEDINGS THAT COULD HAVE A MATERIAL ADVERSE IMPACT ON OUR FINANCIAL POSITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

 

From time to time and in the ordinary course of our business, we and certain of our subsidiaries may become involved in various legal proceedings. All such legal proceedings are inherently unpredictable and, regardless of the merits of the claims, litigation may be expensive, time-consuming and disruptive to our operations and distracting to management. If resolved against us, such legal proceedings could result in excessive verdicts, injunctive relief or other equitable relief that may affect how we operate our business. Similarly, if we settle such legal proceedings, it may affect how we operate our business. Future court decisions, alternative dispute resolution awards, business expansion or legislative activity may increase our exposure to litigation and regulatory investigations. In some cases, substantial noneconomic remedies or punitive damages may be sought. We currently do not maintain liability insurance coverage, but even if we had such insurance, there can be no assurance that such coverage will cover any particular verdict, judgment or settlement that may be entered against us, that such coverage will prove to be adequate or that such coverage will continue to remain available on acceptable terms, if at all. If we obtain such insurance, we could still incur liability that exceeds our insurance coverage or that is not within the scope of the coverage in legal proceedings brought against us, it could have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

WE INTEND TO CONTINUE STRATEGIC BUSINESS ACQUISITIONS AND OTHER COMBINATIONS, WHICH ARE SUBJECT TO INHERENT RISKS.

 

We may continue to seek and complete strategic business acquisitions and other combinations that we believe are complementary to our business. Acquisitions have inherent risks which may have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results or prospects, including, but not limited to: 1) failure to successfully integrate the business and financial operations, services, intellectual property, solutions or personnel of an acquired business and to maintain uniform standard controls, policies and procedures; 2) diversion of management’s attention from other business concerns; 3) entry into markets in which we have little or no direct prior experience; 4) failure to achieve projected synergies and performance targets; 5) loss of clients or key personnel; 6) incurrence of debt or assumption of known and unknown liabilities; 7) write-off of software development costs, goodwill, client lists and amortization of expenses related to intangible assets; 8) dilutive issuances of equity securities; and, 9) accounting deficiencies that could arise in connection with, or as a result of, the acquisition of an acquired company, including issues related to internal control over financial reporting and the time and cost associated with remedying such deficiencies. If we fail to successfully integrate acquired businesses or fail to implement our business strategies with respect to these acquisitions, we may not be able to achieve projected results or support the amount of consideration paid for such acquired businesses.

 

IF WE ARE UNABLE TO MANAGE OUR GROWTH IN THE NEW MARKETS IN WHICH WE OFFER SOLUTIONS OR SERVICES, OUR BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL RESULTS COULD SUFFER.

 

Our future financial results will depend in part on our ability to profitably manage our business in the new markets that we enter. Difficulties in managing future growth in new markets could have a significant negative impact on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

8

 

 

WE RELY HEAVILY ON OUR MANAGEMENT, AND THE LOSS OF THEIR SERVICES COULD ADVERSELY AFFECT OUR BUSINESS.

 

Our success is highly dependent upon the continued services of our management including our Chief Executive Officer and Director, Erik Blum. The loss of Mr. Blum’s services would have a material adverse effect on the Company and its business operations.

 

WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO IMPLEMENT OUR GROWTH AND MARKETING STRATEGY SUCCESSFULLY OR ON A TIMELY BASIS OR AT ALL.

 

Our future success depends, in large part, on our ability to implement our growth strategy of organic growth along with acquisitions in the Fintech space.

 

Our sales and operating results will be adversely affected if we fail to implement our growth strategy or if we invest resources in a growth strategy that ultimately proves unsuccessful.

 

CYBER SECURITY RISKS AND THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE INTEGRITY OF DATA BELONGING TO OUR COMPANY COULD EXPOSE US TO DATA LOSS, LITIGATION AND LIABILITY, AND OUR REPUTATION COULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY HARMED.

 

We may from time to time collect and retain large volumes of data relating to our business and from our customers for business purposes, including for transactional and promotional purposes, and our various information technology systems enter, process, summarize and report such data. The integrity and protection of this data is critical to our business. Maintaining compliance with the evolving regulations and requirements applicable to data security and information privacy protection could be difficult and may increase our expenses. In addition, a penetrated or compromised data system or the intentional, inadvertent or negligent release or disclosure of data could result in theft, loss or fraudulent or unlawful use of data relating to our company or our employees, independent distributors or preferred customers, which could harm our reputation, disrupt our operations, or result in remedial and other costs, fines or lawsuits.

 

COMPUTER MALWARE, VIRUSES, HACKING, PHISHING ATTACKS AND SPAMMING COULD HARM OUR BUSINESS AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

 

Computer malware, viruses, physical or electronic break-ins and similar disruptions could lead to interruption and delays in our services and operations and loss, misuse or theft of data. Computer malware, viruses, computer hacking and phishing attacks against online networking platforms have become more prevalent and may occur on our systems in the future.

 

Any attempts by hackers to disrupt our internal systems, if successful, could harm our business, be expensive to remedy and damage our reputation or brand. We currently do not maintain network security business disruption insurance, but even if we obtain such coverage, it may not be sufficient to cover significant expenses and losses related to direct attacks on our website or internal systems. Efforts to prevent hackers from entering our computer systems are expensive to implement and may limit the functionality of our services. Though it is difficult to determine what, if any, harm may directly result from any specific interruption or attack, any failure to maintain performance, reliability, security and availability of our products and services and technical infrastructure may harm our reputation. Any significant disruption to our website or internal computer systems could adversely affect our business and results of operations.

 

9

 

 

OUR INABILITY TO PROTECT OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY COULD IMPAIR OUR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE, REDUCE OUR REVENUE, AND INCREASE OUR COSTS.

 

Our success and ability to compete depends and will depend in part on our ability to obtain and maintain the proprietary aspects of our technologies and products. We rely on a combination of trade secrets, patents, copyrights, trademarks, confidentiality agreements, and other contractual provisions to protect our intellectual property, but these measures may provide only limited protection. We may not always be able to enforce these agreements and may fail to enter into any such agreement in every instance when appropriate. We may from time to time license from third party’s their brands or certain technology used in and for our products. These third-party licenses are granted with restrictions; therefore, such third-party technology may not remain available to us on terms beneficial to us. Our failure to enforce and protect our intellectual property rights or obtain from third parties the right to use necessary technology could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results, and financial condition. In addition, the laws of some foreign countries do not protect proprietary rights as fully as do the laws of the United States.

 

WE MAY FAIL TO RECRUIT AND RETAIN KEY PERSONNEL, WHICH COULD IMPAIR OUR ABILITY TO MEET KEY OBJECTIVES.

 

Our success depends on our ability to attract and retain highly-skilled technical, managerial, sales, and marketing personnel. Changes in key personnel may be disruptive to our business. It could be difficult, time consuming and expensive to replace key personnel. Integrating new key personnel may be difficult and costly. Volatility, lack of positive performance in our stock price or changes to our overall compensation program including our stock incentive program may adversely affect our ability to retain key employees, many of whom may be compensated, in part, based on the performance of our stock price. The loss of services of any of our key personnel, the inability to retain and attract qualified personnel in the future or delays in hiring required personnel could make it difficult to meet key objectives. Any of these impairments related to our key personnel could negatively affect our business, financial condition and financial results.

 

To remain competitive in our market, we must attract, motivate and retain highly skilled managerial, sales, marketing, consulting and technical personnel, including executives and consultants. Our failure to attract additional qualified personnel to meet our needs could have a material adverse effect on our prospects for long-term growth. Our success is dependent to a significant degree on the continued contributions of key management. The unexpected loss of key personnel could have a material adverse impact on our business and results.

Risks Related to Our Common Stock

 

OUR STOCK PRICE MAY BE VOLATILE OR MAY DECLINE REGARDLESS OF OUR OPERATING PERFORMANCE, AND YOU MAY LOSE PART OR ALL OF YOUR INVESTMENT.

 

The market price of our common stock may fluctuate widely in response to various factors, some of which are beyond our control, including:

 

actions by competitors;

 

actual or anticipated growth rates relative to our competitors;

 

the public’s response to press releases or other public announcements by us or third parties, including our filings with the SEC;

 

economic, legal and regulatory factors unrelated to our performance;

 

any future guidance we may provide to the public, any changes in such guidance or any difference between our guidance and actual results;

 

changes in financial estimates or recommendations by any securities analysts who follow our common stock;

 

speculation by the press or investment community regarding our business;

 

litigation;

 

changes in key personnel; and

 

future sales of our common stock by our officers, directors and significant shareholders.

 

In addition, the stock markets, including the grey market and the over-the-counter markets where we were quoted, have experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations that have affected and continue to affect the market prices of equity securities of many companies. These broad market fluctuations may materially affect our stock price, regardless of our operating results. Furthermore, the market for our common stock historically has been limited and we cannot assure you that a larger market will ever be developed or maintained. The price at which investors purchase shares of our common stock may not be indicative of the price that will prevail in the trading market. Market fluctuations and volatility, as well as general economic, market and political conditions, could reduce our market price. As a result, these factors may make it more difficult or impossible for you to sell our common stock for a positive return on your investment. In the past, shareholders have instituted securities class action litigation following periods of market volatility. If we were involved in securities litigation, we could incur substantial costs and our resources and the attention of management could be diverted from our business.

 

11

 

 

FUTURE SALES OF SHARES OF OUR COMMON STOCK, OR THE PERCEPTION IN THE PUBLIC MARKETS THAT THESE SALES MAY OCCUR, MAY DEPRESS OUR STOCK PRICE.

 

The market price of our common stock could decline significantly as a result of sales of a large number of shares of our common stock. In addition, if our significant shareholders sell a large number of shares, or if we issue a large number of shares, the market price of our stock could decline. Any issuance of additional common stock by us in the future, or warrants or options to purchase our common stock, if exercised, would result in dilution to our existing shareholders. Such issuances could be made at a price that reflects a discount or a premium to the then-current trading price of our common stock. Moreover, the perception in the public market that shareholders might sell shares of our stock or that we could make a significant issuance of additional common stock in the future could depress the market for our shares. These sales, or the perception that these sales might occur, could depress the market price of our common stock or make it more difficult for us to sell equity securities in the future at a time and at a price that we deem appropriate.

 

We have issued shares of common stock, and convertible notes which are convertible into shares of our common stock in connection with our private placements. In addition, we issued shares of our common stock, and convertible notes which are convertible into shares of our preferred stock, in financing transactions that are deemed to be “restricted securities,” as that term is defined in Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act. From time to time, certain of our shareholders may be eligible to sell all or some of their restricted shares of common stock by means of ordinary brokerage transactions in the open market pursuant to Rule 144, subject to certain limitations. The resale pursuant to Rule 144 of shares acquired from us in private transactions could cause our stock price to decline significantly.

 

“PENNY STOCK” RULES MAY MAKE BUYING OR SELLING OUR COMMON STOCK DIFFICULT.

 

If the market price for our common stock is below $5.00 per share, trading in our common stock may be subject to the “penny stock” rules. The SEC has adopted regulations that generally define a penny stock to be any equity security that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. These rules would require that any broker-dealer that would recommend our common stock to persons other than prior customers and accredited investors, must, prior to the sale, make a special written suitability determination for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to execute the transaction. Unless an exception is available, the regulations would require the delivery, prior to any transaction involving a penny stock, of a disclosure schedule explaining the penny stock market and the risks associated with trading in the penny stock market. In addition, broker-dealers must disclose commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative and current quotations for the securities they offer. The additional burdens imposed upon broker-dealers by such requirements may discourage broker-dealers from effecting transactions in our common stock, which could severely limit the market price and liquidity of our common stock.

 

SALES OF OUR CURRENTLY ISSUED AND OUTSTANDING STOCK MAY BECOME FREELY TRADABLE PURSUANT TO RULE 144 AND MAY DILUTE THE MARKET FOR YOUR SHARES AND HAVE A DEPRESSIVE EFFECT ON THE PRICE OF THE SHARES OF OUR COMMON STOCK.

 

A substantial majority of our outstanding shares of common stock are “restricted securities” within the meaning of Rule 144 under the Securities Act. As restricted shares, these shares may be resold only pursuant to an effective registration statement or under the requirements of Rule 144 or other applicable exemptions from registration under the Act and as required under applicable state securities laws. Rule 144 provides in essence that an Affiliate (as such term is defined in Rule 144(a)(1)) of an issuer who has held restricted securities for a period of at least six months (one year after filing Form 10 information with the SEC for shell companies and former shell companies) may, under certain conditions, sell every three months, in brokerage transactions, a number of shares that does not exceed the greater of 1% of a company’s outstanding shares of common stock or the average weekly trading volume during the four calendar weeks prior to the sale (the four calendar week rule does not apply to companies quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board). Rule 144 also permits, under certain circumstances, the sale of securities, without any limitation, by a person who is not an Affiliate of the Company and who has satisfied a one-year holding period. A sale under Rule 144 or under any other exemption from the Act, if available, or pursuant to subsequent registrations of our shares of common stock, may have a depressive effect upon the price of our shares of common stock in any active market that may develop.

POTENTIAL FUTURE FINANCINGS MAY DILUTE THE HOLDINGS OF OUR CURRENT SHAREHOLDERS.

 

In order to provide capital for the operation of our business, in the future we may enter into financing arrangements. These arrangements may involve the issuance of new shares of common stock, preferred stock that is convertible into common stock, debt securities that are convertible into common stock or warrants for the purchase of common stock. Any of these items could result in a material increase in the number of shares of common stock outstanding, which would in turn result in a dilution of the ownership interests of existing common shareholders. In addition, these new securities could contain provisions, such as priorities on distributions and voting rights, which could affect the value of our existing common stock.

 

WE CURRENTLY DO NOT INTEND TO PAY DIVIDENDS ON OUR COMMON STOCK. AS A RESULT, YOUR ONLY OPPORTUNITY TO ACHIEVE A RETURN ON YOUR INVESTMENT IS IF THE PRICE OF OUR COMMON STOCK APPRECIATES.

 

We currently do not expect to declare or pay dividends on our common stock. In addition, in the future we may enter into agreements that prohibit or restrict our ability to declare or pay dividends on our common stock. As a result, your only opportunity to achieve a return on your investment will be if the market price of our common stock appreciates and you sell your shares at a profit.

 

YOU MAY EXPERIENCE DILUTION OF YOUR OWNERSHIP INTEREST DUE TO THE FUTURE ISSUANCE OF ADDITIONAL SHARES OF OUR COMMON STOCK.

 

We do not have sufficient funds to finance the growth of our business on hand. As a result, we will require additional funds from future equity or debt financings, including tax equity financing transactions or sales of preferred shares or convertible debt, to complete the development of new projects and pay the general and administrative costs of our business. We may in the future issue our previously authorized and unissued securities, resulting in the dilution of the ownership interests of holders of our common stock. We are currently authorized to issue 1,450,000,000 shares of common stock. The potential issuance of such additional shares of common stock or preferred stock or convertible debt may create downward pressure on the trading price of our common stock. We may also issue additional shares of common stock or other securities that are convertible into or exercisable for common stock in future public offerings or private placements for capital raising purposes or for other business purposes. The future issuance of a substantial number of common shares into the public market, or the perception that such issuance could occur, could adversely affect the prevailing market price of our common shares. A decline in the price of our common shares could make it more difficult to raise funds through future offerings of our common shares or securities convertible into common shares.

 

OUR SHARES OF COMMON STOCK ARE CURRENTLY TRADED ON THE OTC MARKETS PINK MARKET TIER, ARE VERY THINLY TRADED, AND THE PRICE MAY NOT REFLECT OUR VALUE AND THERE CAN BE NO ASSURANCE THAT THERE WILL BE AN ACTIVE MARKET FOR OUR SHARES OF COMMON STOCK EITHER NOW OR IN THE FUTURE.

 

Our shares of common stock are very thinly traded, and the price, if traded, may not reflect our value. There can be no assurance that there will be an active market for our shares of common stock either now or in the future. The market liquidity will be dependent on the perception of our operating business and any steps that our management might take to increase awareness of our Company with investors. There can be no assurance given that there will be any awareness generated. Consequently, investors may not be able to liquidate their investment or liquidate it at a price that reflects the value of the business. If a more active market should develop, the price may be highly volatile. Because there may be a low price for our shares of common stock, many brokerage firms may not be willing to effect transactions in the securities. Even if an investor finds a broker willing to effect a transaction in the shares of our common stock, the combination of brokerage commissions, transfer fees, taxes, if any, and any other selling costs may exceed the selling price. Further, many lending institutions will not permit the use of such shares of common stock as collateral for loans.

 

13

 

 

WE HAVE A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF SHARES OF OUR COMMON STOCK ISSUABLE UPON CONVERSION OF CERTAIN OUTSTANDING OPTIONS, AND CONVERTIBLE NOTES, AND THE ISSUANCE OF SUCH SHARES UPON EXERCISE OR CONVERSION WILL HAVE A SIGNIFICANT DILUTIVE IMPACT ON OUR STOCKHOLDERS. SALES OF A SUBSTANTIAL NUMBER OF SHARES OF OUR COMMON STOCK FOLLOWING THE EXPIRATION OF LOCK-UPS MAY ADVERSELY AFFECT THE MARKET PRICE OF OUR COMMON STOCK AND THE ISSUANCE OF ADDITIONAL SHARES WILL DILUTE ALL OTHER STOCKHOLDERS.

 

As of June 30, 2023, there are 1,162,060,743 shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of our convertible notes, subject to the provisions in such convertible notes which limit the holder’s beneficial ownership to a maximum of 4.99% or 9.99% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s Common Stock.

 

FUTURE ISSUANCE OF OUR COMMON STOCK, PREFERRED STOCK, OPTIONS AND WARRANTS COULD DILUTE THE INTERESTS OF EXISTING STOCKHOLDERS.

 

We may issue additional shares of our common stock, preferred stock, options and warrants in the future. The issuance of a substantial amount of common stock, options and warrants could have the effect of substantially diluting the interests of our current stockholders. In addition, the sale of a substantial amount of common stock or preferred stock in the public market, or the exercise of a substantial number of warrants and options either in the initial issuance or in a subsequent resale by the target company in an acquisition which received such common stock as consideration or by investors who acquired such common stock in a private placement could have an adverse effect on the market price of our common stock.

 

WE DO NOT INTEND TO PAY DIVIDENDS FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE, AND YOU MUST RELY ON INCREASES IN THE MARKET PRICES OF OUR COMMON STOCK FOR RETURNS ON YOUR INVESTMENT.

 

For the foreseeable future, we intend to retain any earnings to finance the development and expansion of our business, and we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on our common stock. Accordingly, investors must be prepared to rely on sales of their common stock after price appreciation to earn an investment return, which may never occur. Investors seeking cash dividends should not purchase our common stock. Any determination to pay dividends in the future will be made at the discretion of our Board and will depend on our results of operations, financial condition, contractual restrictions, restrictions imposed by applicable law and other factors the Board deems relevant.

 

OUR EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS POSSESS SIGNIFICANT VOTING POWER WITH RESPECT TO OUR COMMON STOCK, WHICH WILL LIMIT YOUR INFLUENCE ON CORPORATE MATTERS.

 

As of June 30, 2023, our directors and executive officers collectively beneficially own approximately 305,000,000 of the shares of our common stock, 205,000,000 which is beneficially owned by Ronald Hughes, and 100,000,000 which is beneficially owned by Erik Blum, representing 29.3% of the shares of our common stock.

 

As a result, our insiders have the ability to significantly influence our management and affairs through the election and removal of our Board and all other matters requiring stockholder approval, including any future merger, consolidation or sale of all or substantially all of our assets. This concentrated voting power could discourage others from initiating any potential merger, takeover or other change-of-control transaction that may otherwise be beneficial to our stockholders. Furthermore, this concentrated control will limit the practical effect of your influence over our business and affairs, through any stockholder vote or otherwise. Any of these effects could depress the price of our common stock.

 

14

 

 

OUR ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION GRANTS OUR BOARD THE POWER TO ISSUE ADDITIONAL SHARES OF COMMON AND PREFERRED SHARES AND TO DESIGNATE OTHER CLASSES OF PREFERRED SHARES, ALL WITHOUT STOCKHOLDER APPROVAL.

 

Our authorized capital consists of 1,450,000,000 shares of common stock and 5,500,000 shares preferred stock. Our Board, without any action by our stockholders, may designate and issue shares of preferred stock in such series as it deems appropriate and establish the rights, preferences and privileges of such shares, including dividends, liquidation and voting rights, provided it is consistent with Nevada law.

 

The rights of holders of our preferred stock that may be issued could be superior to the rights of holders of our shares of common stock. The designation and issuance of shares of capital stock having preferential rights could adversely affect other rights appurtenant to shares of our common stock. Furthermore, any issuances of additional stock (common or preferred) will dilute the percentage of ownership interest of then-current holders of our capital stock and may dilute our book value per share.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

This registration statement on Form 10 and other reports filed by the Company from time to time with the SEC (collectively, the “Filings”) contain or may contain forward-looking statements and information that are based upon beliefs of, and information currently available to, the Company’s management as well as estimates and assumptions made by Company’s management. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which are only predictions and speak only as of the date hereof. When used in the Filings, the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “future,” “intend,” “plan,” or the negative of these terms and similar expressions as they relate to the Company or the Company’s management identify forward-looking statements. Such statements reflect the current view of the Company with respect to future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and other factors, including the risks relating to the Company’s business, industry, and the Company’s operations and results of operations. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may differ significantly from those anticipated, believed, estimated, expected, intended, or planned.

 

Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements. Except as required by applicable law, including the securities laws of the United States, the Company does not intend to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform these statements to actual results.

 

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). These accounting principles require us to make certain estimates, judgments and assumptions. We believe that the estimates, judgments and assumptions upon which we rely are reasonable based upon information available to us at the time that these estimates, judgments and assumptions are made. These estimates, judgments and assumptions can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented. Our financial statements would be affected to the extent there are material differences between these estimates and actual results. In many cases, the accounting treatment of a particular transaction is specifically dictated by GAAP and does not require management’s judgment in its application. There are also areas in which management’s judgment in selecting any available alternative would not produce a materially different result. The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this report.

 

Management’s discussion and analysis of results of operations and financial condition (“MD&A”) is a supplement to the accompanying condensed financial statements and provides additional information on SMC Entertainment, Inc.’s (“SMC” or the “Company’) business, current developments, financial condition, cash flows and results of operations.

Overview

 

SMC Entertainment, Inc (“SMC” or the “Company”) was incorporated in Nevada on January 23, 1998, under the name of Professional Recovery Systems, Ltd.

 

On March 1, 2021, the Company rescinded its agreement with FiberSKY Networks, Inc. (“FiberSKY”). The Company issued 2,000,000 shares of common stock to Ted Lasser, a controlling person of FiberSKY, for consideration of the cancellation.

 

On March 25, 2021, the Company terminated its agreement with WiMundo. The Company received a waiver of share issuance for the 20,000,000 shares of common stock never issued to WiMundo. The Company issued 1,500,000 shares each to two individuals related to the WiMundo.

 

On March 30, 2021, the Company sold, transferred and assigned all rights and ownership to SMC’s wholly owned subsidiary iPTerra Technologies, Inc. (“iPTerra”), iPMine software intellectual property (“iPMine-IP”), and Aktiv-Trak software intellectual property (Aktiv-Trak-IP”) to Wyoming-based privately held Aktiv-Trak, Inc. (“Aktiv-Trak”).

 

On October 12, 2021, the Company announced it entered in discussion with the former members of Spectrum Entertainment LLC (“Spectrum”) to rescind SMC’s acquisition of Spectrum. As part of the rescission agreement, SMC is seeking (i) the repayment of $145,274.93 which includes payments made to Spectrum’s lenders, legal and accounting fees paid by the Company; and (ii) the return and cancellation of 40,000,000 common shares issued to Spectrum members as consideration for acquiring Spectrum. The Company’s acquisition of Spectrum was initiated, lead, and concluded by the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer.

 

On November 2, 2021, the Company filed a Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) filing in the states of Michigan and Wisconsin against Spectrum to secure its rightful ownership until Spectrum repays amounts owed and the return of 40,000,000 shares for cancellation. The Company took these extra measures to secure its ownership title, protect and preserve shareholders equity.

 

In settlement of the dispute between the Company and Spectrum, on January 20, 2022, the 40,000,000 shares of common stock originally issued to MICRME LLC were cancelled and returned to the Company. Spectrum’s majority member, Mr. Daniel Barbacovi, formed MICRME LLC in 2021 and requested the 40,000,000 shares of common stock to be issued to MICRME LLC. 

 

On December 12, 2022, the Company entered into a Rescission and Release Agreement with Genesis Financial, Inc (“GFL”), that effectively terminated its Stock Purchase Agreement, that was executed on November 18, 2021. Per the terms of the Agreement GFL agreed to pay a rescission fee of $300,000, $50,000 of which was to be paid within 21 days and the balance within 60 days. As certain requirements to complete the acquisition were never completed, there was never a formal closing and the financial statements of the Company were never consolidated, the transaction has been unwound and is not reflected in the financial statements of the Company.

 

On April 21, 2023, the Company completed its acquisition of AI-enabled wealth management technology platform provider, Fyniti Global Equities EBT Inc. (“Fyniti”) for 2,500,000 shares of Series B $10.00 Preferred Stock.

 

Fyniti, (www.fyniti.com, www.fynitiiq.com) is a Fintech developer and provider of technology that combines Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) driven Quantitative investing (IQ Engine) with AI-enabled wealth management Electronic Block Trading (“EBT”) technology.

 

On August 14, 2023, the Company filed a Certificate of Change with the Nevada Secretary of State to increase the authorized shares of the Company’s common stock to 3,000,000,000.

Going Concern

 

Our auditors have expressed substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis. For the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company had a net loss of $1,230,295, had net cash used in operating activities of $189,253, and an accumulated deficit of $16,000,004. For the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company had a net loss of $687,475, had net cash used in operating activities of $71,184 and an accumulated deficit of $16,687,479. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of one year from the date of this filing. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to obtain the necessary financing to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due, to fund possible future acquisitions, and to generate profitable operations in the future. Management plans to provide for the Company’s capital requirements by continuing to issue additional equity and debt securities. The outcome of these matters cannot be predicted at this time and there are no assurances that, if achieved, the Company will have sufficient funds to execute its business plan or generate positive operating results. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company had no off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our significant accounting policies are summarized in Note 2 to our audited financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021. Certain of our accounting policies require the application of significant judgment by our management, and such judgments are reflected in the amounts reported in our financial statements. In applying these policies, our management uses judgment to determine the appropriate assumptions to be used in the determination of estimates. Those estimates are based on our historical experience, terms of existing contracts, our observance of market trends, information provided by our strategic partners and information available from other outside sources, as appropriate. Actual results may differ significantly from the estimates contained in our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Item 3. Properties.

 

We maintain our current principal office at 9170 Glades Road Suite 150, Boca Raton, FL 33434. Our telephone number at this office is (360) 820-5973. We do not currently lease office space as it is provided by our CEO.

 

Item 4. Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management.

 

(a) Security ownership of certain beneficial owners.

 

The following table sets forth, as of June 30, 2023, the number of shares of common stock owned of record and beneficially by our executive officers, directors and persons who hold 5% or more of the outstanding shares of common stock of the Company.

 

The amounts and percentages of our common stock beneficially owned are reported on the basis of SEC rules governing the determination of beneficial ownership of securities. Under the SEC rules, a person is deemed to be a “beneficial owner” of a security if that person has or shares “voting power,” which includes the power to vote or to direct the voting of such security, or “investment power,” which includes the power to dispose of or to direct the disposition of such security. A person is also deemed to be a beneficial owner of any securities of which that person has the right to acquire beneficial ownership within 60 days through the exercise of any stock option, warrant or other right. Under these rules, more than one person may be deemed a beneficial owner of the same securities and a person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of securities as to which such person has no economic interest. Unless otherwise indicated, each of the shareholders named in the table below, or his or her family members, has sole voting and investment power with respect to such shares of our common stock. Except as otherwise indicated, the address of each of the shareholders listed below is: c/o SMC Entertainment, Inc., 9170 Glades Road Suite 150, Boca Raton, FL 33434.

 

Applicable percentage ownership is based on 1,162,060,743 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of Juen 30, 2023. In computing the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by a person and the percentage ownership of that person, we deemed to be outstanding all shares of Common Stock as held by that person or entity that are currently exercisable or that will become exercisable within 60 days of June 30, 2023.

Item 9. Market Price of and Dividends on the Registrant’s Common Equity and Related Stockholder Matters.

 

Market Information.

 

Our common stock is quoted on the OTC Markets-OTC Pink under the symbol “SMCE” There currently is no liquid trading market for our common stock. There can be no assurance that a significant active trading market in our common stock will develop, or if such a market develops, that it will be sustained.

 

The ability of individual stockholders to trade their shares in a particular state may be subject to various rules and regulations of that state. A number of states require that an issuer’s securities be registered in their state or appropriately exempted from registration before the securities are permitted to trade in that state. Presently, we have no plans to register our securities in any particular state. Further, our shares may be subject to the provisions of Section 15(g) and Rule 15g-9 of the Exchange Act, commonly referred to as the “penny stock” rule. Section 15(g) sets forth certain requirements for transactions in penny stocks and Rule 15g-9(d)(1) incorporates the definition of penny stock as that used in Rule 3a51-1 of the Exchange Act.

 

The SEC generally defines penny stock to be any equity security that has a market price less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. Rule 3a51-1 provides that any equity security is considered to be a penny stock unless that security is: registered and traded on a national securities exchange meeting specified criteria set by the SEC; authorized for quotation on The NASDAQ Stock Market; issued by a registered investment company; excluded from the definition on the basis of price (at least $5.00 per share) or the issuer’s net tangible assets; or exempted from the definition by the SEC. Broker-dealers who sell penny stocks to persons other than established customers and accredited investors (generally persons with assets in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 by an individual, or $300,000 together with his or her spouse), are subject to additional sales practice requirements.

 

For transactions covered by these rules, broker-dealers must make a special suitability determination for the purchase of such securities and must 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 first transaction, of a risk disclosure document relating to the penny stock market. A broker-dealer also must disclose the commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative, and current quotations for the securities. Finally, monthly statements must be sent to clients disclosing recent price information for the penny stocks held in the account and information on the limited market in penny stocks. Consequently, these rules may restrict the ability of broker-dealers to trade and/or maintain a market in our common stock and may affect the ability of stockholders to sell their shares.

 

We have not previously filed a registration statement under the Securities Act. Shares sold pursuant to exemptions from registration are deemed to be “restricted” securities as defined by the Securities Act. As of June 30, 2023, out of a total of 1,450,000,000 shares authorized, 683,955,093 shares are issued as restricted securities and can only be sold or otherwise transferred pursuant to a registration statement under the Securities Act or pursuant to an available exemption from registration. Of such restricted shares, 305,000,000 shares are held by affiliates (directors, officers and 10% holders), with the balance of 378,955,093 restricted shares being held by non-affiliates. 

 

31

 

 

In general, under Rule 144 as currently in effect, a person (or persons whose shares are aggregated) who has beneficially owned restricted shares of a reporting company for at least six months, including any person who may be deemed to be an “affiliate” of the company (as the term “affiliate” is defined under the Securities Act), is entitled to sell, within any three-month period, an amount of shares that does not exceed the greater of (i) the average weekly trading volume in the company’s common stock, as reported through the automated quotation system of a registered securities association, during the four calendar weeks preceding such sale or (ii) 1% of the shares then outstanding. In order for a stockholder to rely on Rule 144, adequate current public information with respect to the company must be available. A person who is not deemed to be an affiliate of the company and has not been an affiliate for the most recent three months, and who has held restricted shares for at least one year is entitled to sell such shares without regard to the various resale limitations under Rule 144. Under Rule 144, the requirements of paragraphs (c), (e), (f), and (h) of such Rule do not apply to restricted securities sold for the account of a person who is not an affiliate of an issuer at the time of the sale and has not been an affiliate during the preceding three months, provided the securities have been beneficially owned by the seller for a period of at least one year prior to their sale. For purposes of this registration statement, a controlling stockholder is considered to be a person who owns 10% or more of the company’s total outstanding shares, or is otherwise an affiliate of the Company. No individual person owning shares that are considered to be not restricted owns more than 10% of the Company’s total outstanding shares.

 

Holders

Item 12. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

 

The Nevada General Corporation Law permits a corporation to provide in its certificate of incorporation that a director of the corporation shall not be personally liable to the corporation or its shareholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability (i) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the corporation or its shareholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) for unlawful payments of dividends or unlawful stock repurchases, redemptions or other distributions, or (iv) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit. Our amended certificate of incorporation provides that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, no director shall be personally liable to us or our shareholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as director.

 

The Nevada General Corporation Law provides that a corporation may indemnify directors and officers as well as other employees and individuals against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with any threatened, pending or completed actions, suits or proceedings in which such person is made a party by reason of such person being or having been a director, officer, employee or agent to the corporation. The Nevada General Corporation Law provides that Section 145 is not exclusive of other rights to which those seeking indemnification may be entitled under any bylaw, agreement, vote of shareholders or disinterested directors or otherwise. Our bylaws provide for indemnification by us of our directors, officers and employees to the fullest extent permitted by the Nevada General Corporation Law.

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be provided for directors, officers, employees, agents or persons controlling an issuer pursuant to the foregoing provisions, the opinion of the SEC is that such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act, and is therefore unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification by such director, officer or controlling person of us in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being offered, we will, unless in the opinion of our counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by us is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

 

Subject to the Company’s By-laws, each Director and Officer shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Company to the fullest extent authorized by the DGCL, as the same exists or may hereafter be amended (but, in the case of any such amendment, only to the extent that such amendment permits the Corporation to provide broader indemnification rights than such law permitted the Company to provide prior to such amendment) against any and all expenses, judgments, penalties, fines and amounts reasonably paid in settlement that are incurred by such Director or Officer or on such Director’s or Officer’s behalf in connection with any threatened, pending or completed Proceeding or any claim, issue or matter therein, which such Director or Officer is, or is threatened to be made, a party to or participant in by reason of such Director’s or Officer’s Corporate Status, if such Director or Officer acted in good faith and in a manner such Director or Officer reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation and, with respect to any criminal proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful.

These unaudited financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and related notes for the year ended December 31, 2022.

 

Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) requires the Company to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. These estimates and judgments are based on historical information, information that is currently available to the Company and on various other assumptions that the Company believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. Significant estimates include the fair value for derivatives. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Concentrations of Credit Risk

We maintain our cash in bank deposit accounts, the balances of which at times may exceed federally insured limits. We continually monitor our banking relationships and consequently have not experienced any losses in our accounts. At times, such deposits may be in excess of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insurable amount (“FDIC”).

 

Cash equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. There were no cash equivalents as of June 30, 2023 or December 31, 2022.

Basic and Diluted Earnings Per Share

Net income (loss) per common share is computed pursuant to section 260-10-45 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. Basic net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock and potentially outstanding shares of common stock during the period. The weighted average number of common shares outstanding and potentially outstanding common shares assumes that the Company incorporated as of the beginning of the first period presented. Diluted amounts are not presented when the effect of the computations are anti-dilutive due to the losses incurred. Accordingly, there is no difference in the amounts presented for basic and diluted loss per share.

 

Stock-based Compensation

We account for equity-based transactions with employees and non-employees under the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 718, “Compensation – Stock Compensation” (Topic 718), which establishes that equity-based payments to employees and non-employees are recorded at the grant date the fair value of the equity instruments the entity is obligated to issue when the employees and non-employees have rendered the requisite service and satisfied any other conditions necessary to earn the right to benefit from the instruments. Topic 718 also states that observable market prices of identical or similar equity or liability instruments in active markets are the best evidence of fair value and, if available, should be used as the basis for the measurement for equity and liability instruments awarded in these share-based payment transactions. However, if observable market prices of identical or similar equity or liability instruments are not available, the fair value shall be estimated by using a valuation technique or model that complies with the measurement objective, as described in FASB ASC Topic 718.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

The Company evaluates its convertible notes 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 fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value 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.

 

Fair value of financial instruments

The Company follows paragraph 825-10-50-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for disclosures about fair value of its financial instruments and paragraph 820-10-35-37 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“Paragraph 820-10-35-37”) to measure the fair value of its financial instruments. Paragraph 820-10-35-37 establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. To increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and related disclosures, Paragraph 820-10-35-37 establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three (3) broad levels. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. The three (3) levels of fair value hierarchy defined by Paragraph 820-10-35-37 are described below:

 

Level 1: Quoted market prices available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date.

 

Level 2: Pricing inputs other than quoted prices in active markets included in Level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date.

 

Level 3: Pricing inputs that are generally unobservable inputs and not corroborated by market data.

 

F-7

 

 

The carrying amount of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities, such as cash, prepaid expenses and accrued expenses approximate their fair value because of the short maturity of those instruments. The Company’s notes payable amates the fair value of such instruments as the notes bear interest rates that are consistent with current market rates.

 

The following table classifies the Company’s asset measured at fair value on a recurring basis into the fair value hierarchy as of June 30, 2023:

Recently issued accounting pronouncements

The Company has implemented all new applicable accounting pronouncements that are in effect. These pronouncements did not have any material impact on the financial statements unless otherwise disclosed, and the Company does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

 

NOTE 3 — GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has suffered recurring losses since inception and has no assurance of future profitability. The Company will continue to require financing from external sources to finance its operating and investing activities until sufficient positive cash flows from operations can be generated. There is no assurance that financing or profitability will be achieved, accordingly, there is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements of the Company do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

 

NOTE 4 — MATERIAL TRANSACTION

 

On December 12, 2022, the Company entered into a Rescission and Release Agreement with Genesis Financial, Inc (“GFL”), that effectively terminated its Stock Purchase Agreement, that was executed on November 18, 2021. Per the terms of the Agreement GFL agreed to pay a rescission fee of $300,000, $50,000 of which was to be paid within 21 days and the balance within 60 days. As certain requirements to complete the acquisition were never completed, there was never a formal closing and the financial statements of the Company were never consolidated, the transaction has been unwound and is not reflected in the financial statements of the Company.

 

NOTE 5 — CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE

 

On January 12, 2022, Kanno entered into a Debt Purchases and Assignment Agreement with Mammoth Corporation, whereby Kanno assigned the remaining principal balance of $399,046, from its note originally issued on February 3, 2018, to Mammoth. No accrued interest was assigned.

 

On January 21, 2022, the Company issued a Convertible Promissory Note to Mammoth Corporation in the amount of $550,000. The Note will be funded in tranches, with the initial tranche of $110,400, net of $4,600 OID and fees, paid on February 1, 2022. Interest will not accrue on the note, unless an uncured default occurs.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

To the shareholders and the board of directors of

SMC Entertainment, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements 

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of SMC Entertainment, Inc. (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2022, and 2021, and the related statements of operations, changes in shareholders’ equity and cash flows, for the year ended December 31, 2022, 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, 2022, and 2021, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2022, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

 

Going Concern

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the company will continue as a going concern as disclosed in Note 3 to the financial statement, the Company has continuously incurred a net loss of $(1,230,295) for the year ended December 31, 2022, a working capital deficit of ($2,355,358) and an accumulated deficit of $(16,000,004) at December 31, 2022. The continuation of the Company as a going concern through December 31, 2022, is dependent upon improving profitability and the continuing financial support from its stockholders. Management believes the existing shareholders or external financing will provide additional cash to meet the Company’s obligations as they become due.

 

These factors raise substantial doubt about the company ability to continue as a going concern. These financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of the 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 audits. 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 audits 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 audits 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 audits 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 audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. The company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

Critical Audit Matters
