Miso Robotics Company Overview

 

Miso Robotics uses a cloud-connected AI Platform that enables the Company’s autonomous robotic kitchen assistants to perform tasks such as frying and grilling alongside chefs in a commercial kitchen. Miso Robotics is revolutionizing the restaurant and prepared food industries with innovative robotics and AI solutions.

 

Miso was founded with a mission to leverage AI technology to help chefs cook food perfectly and consistently. Since the Company’s founding in 2016, Miso’s robotic kitchen assistant, also known as “Flippy”, has been featured in numerous news and media outlets, including Forbes, TechCrunch, VentureBeat, among many others.

 

The Company employs a respected team of roboticists, engineers and industrial designers from Caltech, Cornell, MIT, Carnegie Mellon, UCLA, Olin, Harvey Mudd, Art Center, NASA, Tesla, and SpaceX.

 

In March 2018, Miso launched the first “Flippy” in CaliBurger’s Pasadena location, where the bot flips burgers on a flat top grill. After success with this pilot, CaliBurger has recently signed an $11 million commercial contract for two Flippy’s at each of its 50+ locations worldwide. In Q4, 2019, the first “CaliBurger 2.0” opened in Ft. Myers, Florida with its reinvented kitchen that includes two Flippy’s working alongside one chef.

 

Flippy is also operating the fryer at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles and Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, under contract with the Compass Group/Levy Restaurants, which creates, owns, and operates restaurants in over 200 sports and entertainment venues, including Walt Disney Resorts.

 

The newest version of Flippy, the Robot on a Rail (ROAR), was piloted by White Castle at a restaurant in the Midwestern United States in 2020. In Q4 2020 Miso and White Castle announced plans to expand their relationship to a beta rollout, targeting up to ten new White Castle locations at which to deploy Flippy.

 

4

 

 

Miso Robotics is currently building “Flippy 2.0”, which integrates the bot into a mounted rail system, allowing it to work on several tasks at once. This new system will require zero real estate footprint and is forecasted to reduce automation costs by an additional 50%.

 

Our Product

 

Miso Robotics was founded with the idea of giving eyes and a brain to a robotic arm so it could work in commercial kitchens with real-time situational awareness and real-time robotic controls. The Company’s robotic kitchen assistant was designed as a software platform that could automate the cooking of all manner of foods and recipes, with all equipment and restaurant brands, and all kitchen formats.

 

Miso’s autonomous robotic Kitchen Assistants are focused on helping with the most repetitive, dangerous and least desirable tasks in the kitchen. The first “Flippy” grilling burgers was our proof of concept. Flippy can now fry many different kinds of foods as well. These tasks can be improved and optimized for consistency, ensuring each meal is cooked to the perfect temperature with minimal food waste. Beyond frying, grilling, and other cooking, expect them over time to help with tasks like chopping onions, cutting other vegetables and even cleaning.

 

The Kitchen Assistant improves and learns over time based on the data available. Ultimately, this frees up kitchen staff to spend more time with customers. The Company believes the future of food is on-demand, accessible, personalized, and scalable. Miso is building the technology platform leveraging automation, machine learning, and robotics advancements to deliver this future.

 

Product Roadmap

 

Within the next six months, Miso Robotics plans to continue to develop the Flippy Overhead Robot on a Rail (OHROAR) system as the Company targets additional customers and locations for commercial deployment. Key focuses for the Company will include the automation of additional tasks in the cooking lifecycle and further reducing the size of Flippy. Subsequently, Miso will focus on continuing to improve the value provided by existing skills while building new skills continuing to create new modular components with the rail system.

 

Miso Robotics’ long-term vision is to expand with along multiple avenues: increasing robotic arm skills, increasing kitchen equipment that can be interacted with, and providing a platform that allows third parties to develop new skills. Miso Robotics will continue expanding our skills in the kitchen until it can make fully automated kitchen in which people and chefs can program their own recipes.

 

Market Opportunity

 

The biggest misconception about the use of technology in the kitchen is that it is about job replacement. There is a growing labor crisis in the restaurant industry. Local workforces are shrinking, and wages are increasing, making commercial cooking uneconomical. Meanwhile consumers have an increased desire for meals cooked for them, whether via delivery, take-out, dining out, or grocery deli meals, adding pressure on kitchen workers.

 

Restaurants already see a 150% turnover today from a dissatisfied workforce. Pair this with an aging workforce that cannot handle some of the physical demands that come with the job and commercial kitchens are struggling to recruit and retain talent. Intelligent automation not only creates an avenue for meaningful work for the next generation through the creation of new jobs like a Chef Tech (employees trained to manage the robot) but also takes the physical burden off more mature employees who want to contribute later in life.

 

The tasks that Miso’s technology can perform are some of the most dangerous tasks in the kitchen, not to mention messy and menial, ultimately improving the employee experience by freeing up time for them to focus on more meaningful work, like warm customer service that a robot can’t simply match.

We could be adversely affected by product liability, personal injury or other health and safety issues.
Our failure to attract and retain highly qualified personnel in the future could harm our business.
Our newest technology is not yet fully developed, and there is no guarantee that we will be able to develop and produce a fully working prototype of our core product.
We may need to raise additional capital, which might not be available or might be available only on terms unfavorable to us or our investors.

Implications of Being an Emerging Growth Company

 

As an issuer with less than $1 billion in total annual gross revenues during our last fiscal year, we will qualify as an “emerging growth company” under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”) and this status will be significant if and when we become subject to the ongoing reporting requirements of the Exchange Act upon filing a Form 8-A. An emerging growth company may take advantage of certain reduced reporting requirements and is relieved of certain other significant requirements that are otherwise generally applicable to public companies. In particular, as an emerging growth company we:

 

will not be required to obtain an auditor attestation on our internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002;

 

  will not be required to provide a detailed narrative disclosure discussing our compensation principles, objectives and elements and analyzing how those elements fit with our principles and objectives (commonly referred to as “compensation discussion and analysis”);

 

  will not be required to obtain a non-binding advisory vote from our shareholders on executive compensation or golden parachute arrangements (commonly referred to as the “say-on-pay,” “say-on-frequency” and “say-on-golden-parachute” votes);

 

  will be exempt from certain executive compensation disclosure provisions requiring a pay-for-performance graph and CEO pay ratio disclosure;

 

  may present only two years of audited financial statements and only two years of related Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, or MD&A; and will be eligible to claim longer phase-in periods for the adoption of new or revised financial accounting standards.

 

6

 

 

We intend to take advantage of all of these reduced reporting requirements and exemptions, including the longer phase-in periods for the adoption of new or revised financial accounting standards, and hereby elect to do so. Our election to use the phase-in periods may make it difficult to compare our financial statements to those of non-emerging growth companies and other emerging growth companies that have opted out of the phase-in periods under Section 107 of the JOBS Act.

 

Under the JOBS Act, we may take advantage of the above-described reduced reporting requirements and exemptions for up to five years after our initial sale of common equity pursuant to a registration statement declared effective under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or such earlier time that we no longer meet the definition of an emerging growth company. Note that this offering, while a public offering, is not a sale of common equity pursuant to a registration statement, since the offering is conducted pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements. In this regard, the JOBS Act provides that we would cease to be an “emerging growth company” if we have more than $1 billion in annual revenues, have more than $700 million in market value of our Common Stock held by non-affiliates, or issue more than $1 billion in principal amount of non-convertible debt over a three-year period.

 

Certain of these reduced reporting requirements and exemptions are also available to us due to the fact that we may also qualify, once listed, as a “smaller reporting company” under the Commission’s rules. For instance, smaller reporting companies are not required to obtain an auditor attestation on their assessment of internal control over financial reporting; are not required to provide a compensation discussion and analysis; are not required to provide a pay-for-performance graph or CEO pay ratio disclosure; and may present only two years of audited financial statements and related MD&A disclosure.

 

Risk Factors

 

The SEC requires that we identify risks that are specific to our business and financial condition. We are still subject to all the same risks that all companies in our business, and all companies in the economy, are exposed to. These include risks relating to economic downturns, political and economic events and technological developments (such as hacking and the ability to prevent hacking). Additionally, early-stage companies are inherently riskier than more developed companies. You should consider general risks as well as specific risks when deciding whether to Invest.

 

Risks Related to Our Company

 

We have a limited operating history upon which you can evaluate our performance, and have not yet generated profits. Accordingly, our prospects must be considered in light of the risks that any new company encounters. Our company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on June 20, 2016, and we have not yet generated profits. The likelihood of our creation of a viable business must be considered in light of the problems, expenses, difficulties, complications, and delays frequently encountered in connection with the growth of a business, operation in a competitive industry, and the continued development of our technology and products. We anticipate that our operating expenses will increase for the near future, and there is no assurance that we will be profitable in the near future. You should consider our business, operations and prospects in light of the risks, expenses and challenges faced as an emerging growth company.

 

Any valuation at this stage is difficult to assess. The valuation for this Offering was established by the Company and is not based on the financial results of the Company. Instead, it is based on management’s best estimates of the investment value of the Company, which is a subjective measure. This differs significantly from listed companies, which are valued publicly through market-driven stock prices the valuation of private companies, especially early-stage companies, is difficult to assess and you may risk overpaying for your investment.

 

Our two existing customers are related parties. As of June 30, 2020, we had two customers that accounted for all of our revenue. These two customers, CaliBurger and Compass Group/Levy are also investors in our company. Until we are able to source outside customers who are not investors in our Company, we may be unable to reach profitability.

 

The auditor included a “going concern” note in its audit report. We may not have enough funds to sustain the business until it becomes profitable. As of December 31, 2019, we sustained a net loss of $6,990,832 and had an accumulated deficit of $15,656,440. Even if we raise funds through this offering, we may not accurately anticipate how quickly we may use the funds and whether these funds are sufficient to bring the business to profitability.

 

We are currently dependent on a few key personnel. Our success depends, to a large degree, on our ability to retain the services of our executive management team, whose industry knowledge and leadership would be difficult to replace. We might not be able to execute on our business model if we were to lose the services of any of our key personnel.  If any of these individuals were to leave the Company unexpectedly, we could face substantial difficulty in hiring qualified successors and could experience a loss in productivity while any such successor develops the necessary training and experience.  Competition for hiring engineers, sales and marketing personnel and other qualified personnel may result in a shortfall in recruiting and competition for qualified individuals could require us to pay higher salaries, which could result in higher labor costs.  If we are unable to recruit and retain a sufficient number of qualified individuals, or if the individuals we employ do not meet our standards and expectations, we may not be able to successfully execute on our business strategy and our operations and revenues could be adversely affected.  

 

7

 

 

We could be adversely affected by product liability, personal injury or other health and safety issues. We could be adversely impacted by the supply of defective products. Defective products or errors in our technology could lead to serious injury by restaurant and kitchen workers. Product liability or personal injury claims may be asserted against us with respect to any of the products we supply or services we provide. It is our responsibility to have a quality management system and training procedures in place and to audit our suppliers to ensure that products supplied to our company meet proper standards. Should a product or other liability issues arise, the coverage limits under insurance programs and the indemnification amounts available to us may not be adequate to protect us against claims and judgments. We also may not be able to maintain such insurance on acceptable terms in the future. We could suffer significant reputational damage and financial liability if we experience any of the foregoing health and safety issues or incidents, which could have a material adverse effect on our business operations, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Certain intellectual property rights of the Company may be abandoned or otherwise compromised if the Company does not obtain additional capital. The Company may be forced to allow certain deadlines relating to its patent portfolio to pass without taking any action because it lacks sufficient funds to pay for the required actions. Specifically, certain international filing deadlines are quickly approaching as of the date of this Offering Circular and the Company lacks sufficient funds to pay the government and legal fees associated with making such filings. Additionally, certain U.S. provisional patent applications are scheduled to expire and the Company could lose its priority date with regard to the subject matter of such provisional applications in the event the Company n lacks sufficient funds to pay the applicable government and legal fees

 

Our failure to attract and retain highly qualified personnel in the future could harm our business. As the Company grows, it will be required to hire and attract additional qualified professionals such as software engineers, robotics engineers, machine vision and machine learning experts, project managers, regulatory professionals, sales and marketing professionals, accounting, legal, and finance experts. The Company may not be able to locate or attract qualified individuals for such positions, which will affect the Company’s ability to grow and expand its business.

 

The Company’s business model is capital intensive. The amount of capital the Company is attempting to raise in this Offering is not enough to sustain the Company’s current business plan. In order to achieve near and long-term goals, the Company will need to procure funds in addition to the amount raised in the Offering. There is no guarantee the Company will be able to raise such funds on acceptable terms or at all. If the Company is not able to raise sufficient capital in the future, then it will not be able to execute its business plan, its continued operations will be in jeopardy and it may be forced to cease operations and sell or otherwise transfer all or substantially all of its remaining assets, which could cause a Purchaser to lose all or a portion of his or her investment.

 

Our newest technology is not yet fully developed, and there is no guarantee that we will be able to develop and produce a fully working prototype of our core product. We are still developing our robot on a rail prototype and minimum viable product that will eventually go into mass production. We still have significant engineering and development work to do before we are ready to deliver a working version of our product to our corporate partners. We may be unable to convert our prototype to a minimum viable product that can easily be replicated and put into mass production. Additionally, we may not be able to make a transition to mass production, either via in house manufacturing or contract manufacturers.

 

8

 

 

We may need to raise additional capital, which might not be available or might be available only on terms unfavorable to us or our investors. In order to continue to operate and grow the business, we will likely need to raise additional capital beyond this current financing round by offering shares of our Common or Preferred Stock and/or other classes of equity. All of these would result in dilution to our existing investors, plus they may include additional rights or terms that may be unfavorable to our existing investor base. We cannot assure you that the necessary funds will be available on a timely basis, on favorable terms, or at all, or that such funds, if raised, would be sufficient. The level and timing of future expenditure will depend on a number of factors, many of which are outside our control. If we are not able to obtain additional capital on acceptable terms, or at all, we may be forced to curtail or abandon our growth plans, which could adversely impact the Company, its business, development, financial condition, operating results or prospects.

 

A majority of the Company’s voting securities are beneficially owned by Buck Jordan our President, whose interests may differ from those of the other stockholders. As of the date of this Offering Circular, Buck Jordan beneficially owns approximately 52.51% of the shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding voting securities and, assuming all of the shares of Series C Preferred Stock being offered are sold, he will beneficially own approximately 34.1% of the shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding voting securities. Therefore, Mr. Jordan will be able to control the management and affairs of the Company and most matters requiring stockholder approval, including the election of directors and approval of significant corporate transactions. This concentration of ownership may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change in control, which may not be in the best interest of the Company’s other stockholders.

 

Your rights as a holder of Series C Preferred Stock may be limited by the number of shares held by entities affiliated with the Company's management and common shareholders. Two convertible promissory notes, representing principal amounts of $1,062,500 and $782,167, are due to Rise of Miso, LLC and Future VC SPV, LLC.  Rise of Miso, LLC is controlled by John Miller who is an investor in the Company via direct holdings and via CaliBurger’s holdings and Future VC SPV, LLC is controlled by Buck Jordan, who is an investor in the Company as well as its current President. Such convertible notes may be converted into preferred stock at a 20% discount to the lowest purchase price, and may convert into shares that are pari passu or senior to the Series C Preferred Stock. In addition, Future VC SPV, LLC and Rise of Miso, LLC collectively hold 499,239 shares of Series A Preferred Stock and 508,785 shares of Series B Preferred Stock. The Series C Preferred Stock are entitled to certain protective provisions, as described in herein under “Securities Being Offered - Series C Preferred Stock - Voting Rights” and the Company’s Fifth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation. Any vote in regard to the approval or disapproval of those items listed under the protective provisions would be either controlled by or substantially influenced by such affiliates, potentially against the interests of the rest of the Series C Preferred Stockholders. In addition, such affiliates could substantially influence any vote required by a majority of Series C Preferred Stock to cause all shares of Series C Preferred Stock to be converted into shares of Common Stock. 

 

Risks Related to the Securities in this Offering  

 

There is no current market for any shares of the Company's stock. There is no formal marketplace for the resale of the Preferred stock or any of the Company’s Common Stock. Shares of Series C Preferred Stock may be traded on the over-the-counter market to the extent any demand exists. Investors should assume that they may not be able to liquidate their investment for some time, or be able to pledge their shares as collateral.

 

The proceeds of this offering will be used to repay certain venture debt taken on by the Company. Any proceeds used to repay outstanding debts will not provide us with additional working capital for future activities. Our use of the proceeds of this offering includes repayment of the debt owed to multiple parties. The amount due includes a principal balance of $2,744,667 and interest of 10% per annum. Any proceeds used to repay our outstanding debt will not provide us with additional working capital for future activities, which may lead to the Company being required to take on additional debt in the future to finance its activities. Such debt financing may not be available at all when required, or not available on terms favorable to the Company.

 

Any portion of the Company’s venture debt that is not repaid is convertible at a discount into preferred equity. The Company’s venture debt, which has a principal balance of $2,744,667 and interest of 10% per annum, is in the form of convertible notes, which are convertible into preferred equity at a 20% discount. The equity into which the notes convert may be pari passu or senior to the Series C Preferred Stock. In addition, the shares issuable on conversion of the notes are excluded from the fully-diluted capitalization in determining the share price of the Series C Preferred Stock. As such, the share price of the Series C Preferred Stock does not account for the potential conversion of the notes, and any conversion of the notes will immediately dilute your investment.

 

Our Fifth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation has a forum selection provision that requires certain disputes be resolved in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, regardless of convenience or cost to interest holders. Under Article 12 of our Fifth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, stockholders are required to resolve disputes related to the governance of the Company in the Court of Chancery located in the State of Delaware. The forum selection provision applies to (i) any derivative action or proceeding brought on behalf of the Corporation, (ii) any action asserting a claim of breach of fiduciary duty owed by any director, officer or other employee of the Corporation to the Corporation or the Corporation’s stockholders, (iii) any action asserting a claim against the Corporation, its directors, officers or employees arising pursuant to any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law or the Corporation’s certificate of incorporation or bylaws or (iv) any action asserting a claim against the Corporation, its directors, officers or employees governed by the internal affairs doctrine.

 

Our Fifth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation further provides that should the Court of Chancery in the State of Delaware not have subject matter jurisdiction over the matter, or there is an indispensable party not subject to the jurisdiction of the Court of Chancery, then the suit, action, or proceeding may be brought in the appropriate federal or state court. We intend for his forum selection provision to also apply to claims brought under federal securities law. The Company acknowledges that, for claims arising under the Exchange Act, Section 27 of the Exchange Act creates exclusive federal jurisdiction over all suits brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Exchange Act or the rules and regulations thereunder, requiring such matters to be heard in federal court. In contrast, Section 22 of the Securities Act provides for concurrent jurisdiction between federal and state courts for matters arising under the Securities Act.

 

The forum selection provision in our Fifth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation may limit interest holders’ ability to obtain a favorable judicial forum for disputes with us or our officers, directors, employees or agents, which may discourage lawsuits against us and such persons. The requirement that action to which this provision applies be heard in the Court of Chancery in the State of Delaware may also create additional expense for any person contemplating an action against the Company, or limit the access to information to undertake such an action, further discouraging lawsuits.

 

It is also possible that, notwithstanding the forum selection clause included in our Fifth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, a court could rule that such a provision is inapplicable or unenforceable. Alternatively, if a court were to find the provision inapplicable to, or unenforceable in an action, we may incur additional costs associated with resolving such matters in other jurisdictions, which could adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations. 

 

We are and may continue to be significantly impacted by the worldwide economic downturn due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus, or COVID-19, was reported to have surfaced in Wuhan, China. COVID-19 has spread to many countries, including the United States, and was declared to be a pandemic by the World Health Organization. Efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 have intensified and the U.S., Europe and Asia have implemented severe travel restrictions and social distancing. The impacts of the outbreak are unknown and rapidly evolving. A widespread health crisis has adversely affected and could continue to affect the global economy, resulting in an economic downturn that could negatively impact the value of the Company’s shares and investor demand for shares generally.

 

The continued spread of COVID-19 has also led to severe disruption and volatility in the global capital markets, which could increase our cost of capital and adversely affect our ability to access the capital markets in the future. It is possible that the continued spread of COVID-19 could cause a further economic slowdown or recession or cause other unpredictable events, each of which could adversely affect our business, results of operations or financial condition.

 

The extent to which COVID-19 affects our financial results will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the COVID-19 outbreak and the actions to contain the outbreak or treat its impact, among others. Moreover, the COVID-19 outbreak has had and may continue to have indeterminable adverse effects on general commercial activity and the world economy, and our business and results of operations could be adversely affected to the extent that COVID-19 or any other pandemic harms the global economy generally.

 

Specifically, COVID -19 may impact the production and distribution of Miso Robotics. If we are unable to produce our products due to manufacturing strains, we may not be able to distribute our product quickly and scale our business. This impact would mean we’d need to raise additional capital in order to meet our revenue targets.

 

Dilution

 

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

 

Immediate dilution

 

An early-stage company typically sells its shares (or grants options over its shares) to its founders and early employees at a very low cash cost, because they are, in effect, putting their “sweat equity” into the company. When the company seeks cash investments from outside investors, like you, the new investors typically pay a much larger sum for their shares than the founders or earlier investors, which means that the cash value of your stake is diluted because each share of the same type is worth the same amount, and you paid more for your shares than earlier investors did for theirs.

 

The following table compares the price that new investors are paying for their shares with the effective cash price paid by existing shareholders, giving effect to full conversion of all outstanding stock options, and assuming that the shares are sold at $17.16 per share, the original per share price in this offering. The schedule presents shares and pricing as issued and reflects all transactions since inception, which gives investors a better picture of what they will pay for their investment compared to the company’s insiders than just including such transactions for the last 12 months, which is what the SEC requires.

The following table demonstrates the dilution that new investors will experience upon investment in the company. The price per share in this table reflects the original price in the offering of $17.16. This table uses the company's net tangible book value as of June 30, 2020 of -$1,377,750 which is derived from the net equity of the company in the June 30, 2019 financial statements, which have not been audited). This tangible net book value is then adjusted to contemplate conversion all other convertible instruments outstanding at current that would provide proceeds to the company, which assumes exercise of all warrants and stock options outstanding. While, not every outstanding warrant or option may be exercised, we believe that it is important to identify the potential dilution that could occur upon the exercise of all existing securities issued by the company. To further illustrate the dilution that investors may experience, the second and third tables illustrate dilution including authorized, but unissued stock options, and solely on the basis of outstanding equity securities, respectively.

 

The offering costs assumed in the following table includes up to $2,325,000 in commissions to SI Securities, Inc., as well as legal and accounting fees incurred for this Offering. The table presents three scenarios for the convenience of the reader: a $1,500,000 raise from this offering, a $15,000,000 raise from this offering, and a fully subscribed $30,000,000 raise from this offering (maximum offering).

Future Dilution

 

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

  

If the company decides to issue more shares, an investor could experience value dilution, with each share being worth less than before, and control dilution, with the total percentage an investor owns being less than before. There may also be earnings dilution, with a reduction in the amount earned per share (though this typically occurs only if the company offers dividends, and most development stage companies do not pay dividends for some time).

 

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

 

In June 2014, Jane invests $20,000 for shares that represent 2% of a company valued at $1 million.

 

In December, the company is doing very well and sells $5 million in shares to venture capitalists on a valuation (before the new investment) of $10 million. Jane now owns only 1.3% of the company, but her stake is worth $200,000.

 

  In June 2015, the company has run into serious problems, and in order to stay afloat, it raises $1 million at a valuation of only $2 million (the “down round”). Jane now owns only 0.89% of the company, and her stake is worth only $26,660.

 

If you are making an investment expecting to own a certain percentage of the company or expecting each share to hold a certain amount of value, it’s important to realize how the value of those shares can decrease by actions taken by the company. Dilution can make drastic changes to the value of each share, ownership percentage, voting control, and earnings per share. In some cases, dilution can also completely wipe out the value of investments made by early investors, without any person being at fault.

 

Investors should understand how dilution works and the availability of anti-dilution protection.

Our Business

 

Company History

 

Miso Robotics launched in 2016 to create the world’s first autonomous robotic kitchen assistant for commercial kitchens. Automation is important for the restaurant and prepared food industries, which are struggling to make a meaningful profit due to the increase in labor cost.

 

The company is named after the foundation of miso soup, fermented soybeans. Fermentation is one of the first disruptive food technologies, leveraging the work of tiny microbes to provide massive improvements in nourishment at scale - reducing food waste, improving flavors, and unlocking more nutrition with less effort.

 

Miso now employs a respected team of roboticists, engineers and industrial designers from Caltech, Cornell, MIT, Carnegie Mellon, UCLA, Olin, Harvey Mudd, Art Center, NASA, Tesla, and SpaceX.

 

Miso Robotics launched the first autonomous kitchen assistant, “Flippy”, in CaliBurger Pasadena in March 2018. Flippy’s first action in a commercial kitchen was to flip hamburgers. Burger patties are placed down by a human chef on the grill. Flippy uses AI to see the patties and flip them over at the proper time.

 

In the summer of 2018, Flippy was trained with a new skill: frying. Levy, a premium sports and entertainment hospitality company, piloted Flippy as a frying assistant from July 30, 2018, through the World Series of 2018 at the Chick ‘n Tots stand in Dodger Stadium, the home of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Levy, upgraded to Flippy in a mobile cart format at the start of the 2019 season. Flippy has helped stadium team members consistently cook and serve more than 50,000 pounds of fresh chicken tenders and tater tots to Dodger fans, producing up to 80 baskets of food per hour.

 

In the fall of 2018, Flippy was upgraded to a mobile cart that allowed commercial restaurants to roll Flippy into storage to clean equipment and floors according to their SOP.

 

In May of 2019, Flippy was upgraded once again with a smaller footprint and deployed to the home of Diamondbacks at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.

 

Most recently, Miso has signed a commercial contract with CaliBurger worth $11,000,000. The contract is for the rollout of 100 Flippys across 50 CaliBurger locations in a new kitchen layout dubbed "CaliBurger 2.0", and is described in more detail below. In October 2019 as a part of this contract, Miso Robotics deployed two Flippys one at the grill and one at the fryer at CaliBurger's location in Ft. Myers, Florida.

 

In February of 2020 Miso Robotics unveiled “Flippy 2.0”, Robot on a Rail (ROAR). ROAR integrates Flippy into a mounted rail system, allowing it to work on several tasks at once. This new system requires zero real estate footprint and is forecasted to reduce automation costs by an additional 50%.

 

In April of 2020 Miso announced a new AI-powered kitchen assistant tool, CookRight. CookRight uses computer vision to track order accuracy and aid kitchen staff in ensuring that all food is cooked perfectly. Alongside CookRight, kitchen staff have access to an intuitive, gamified dashboard that enables them to supervise multiple workflows simultaneously.

 

In July of 2020 Miso entered into an agreement with White Castle to develop, pilot, and undertake a beta rollout of Miso Robotics' Flippy robot for the restaurant’s North American restaurants. White Castle piloted Miso’s Robot on a Rail (ROAR) system at a Chicago-area restaurant across Q3 and Q4 of 2020 and was the restaurant to utilize the ROAR system in a commercial environment. In October 2020 Miso and White Castle announced plans to expand their partnership, targeting up to ten new locations as part of a beta rollout of Flippy to the company’s North American restaurants.

 

In September 2020 Miso introduced a new software, ChefUI. ChefUI is run as a web-based application and displayed on a touchscreen monitor mounted on the ROAR system. It acts as the conduit between human and robot to work together and cook using the ROAR system. 

 

Miso also made notable additions to the team across the year. First, in October 2020 the Company welcomed Mike Bell as its new Chief Executive Officer. Prior to joining as CEO, Mike was the COO at Ordermark, a restaurant technology company, where he led the enterprise sales function and its top-down go-to-market strategy. He also served as the Chairman of the Board of Directors at Miso. Second, in November 2020 Miso named its first Chief Strategy Officer, Jake Brewer. Prior to joining Miso, Jake was VP of Restaurant Excellence at CKE Restaurants, the parent company for Carl’s Jr. restaurants, where he led customer experience, engineering, field training, and more.

Miso Robotics has created valuable partnerships with key disruptors in the restaurant industry. Miso Robotics is positioned to work with customers in the Quick Service Restaurant system to integrate Flippy into an overhead rail system to reduce the footprint.

 

Product Overview

 

Miso Robotics uses a cloud-connected Miso AI platform that enables the Company’s autonomous robotic kitchen assistants to perform frying and grilling cooking tasks. The product is designed as a platform, with extensible skill sets that will enable the same robot to interact with new kitchen equipment over time (as those new skills are developed). In addition, Miso Robotics’ kitchen assistant product line has received full certification by NSF International for meeting sanitation standards for commercial kitchen equipment and secured an ETL Listed Mark by Intertek for meeting UL electrical safety standards.

 

Miso’s team of engineers has built proprietary algorithms in scheduling (action planning/optimization), trajectory planning (robotic movement), and computer vision. Each of these is crucial for the functionality of Flippy while also providing a barrier to entry against the competition. The accuracy of Flippy’s vision algorithms achieved 99.985% at Dodgers Stadium over the 3 months July-September 2019. More specifically, there was 1 vision error out of 6,625 baskets cooked.

 

To remain easy to use by chefs within an operating kitchen, Flippy uses modern usability research and design to create a touchless cooking workflow, allowing cooks to never press a single button on the robot during regular cooking. Finally, Flippy is cloud-connected. Over-the-air upgrades allow for continuous improvement of the software/brains within Flippy.

 

The Kitchen Assistant improves and learns over time based on the data available. Ultimately, this frees up kitchen staff to spend more time with customers. The Company believes the future of food is on-demand, accessible, personalized, and scalable. Miso is building the technology platform leveraging automation, machine learning, and robotics advancements to deliver this future.

 

Market

 

The United States Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) and fast-food industry experienced historic growth over the five years 2015 – 2019 and reached $273 billion in 2019, with the QSR market growing 4.1% annually during that period. Revenue in the industry is expected to drop to $239 billion in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the industry is expected to recover well as the United States economy improves and grow at a projected annual rate of 5.9% through 2025. While the amount of QSR establishments increased within the U.S to a total of 286,967 in 2019, the labor market for fast - food workers has tightened, creating a labor shortage for QSRs. This shortage can be attributed to multiple factors such as a low unemployment rate, fewer teenagers in the workforce, and a boom in restaurant openings. Miso Robotics is poised to help cure QSR owners and managers of this frustration and provide a solution to the lack of labor.

 

Labor expenses in a Quick Service Restaurant are currently greater than 25% of annual revenue, a number that has remained relatively steady over the past 10 years according to IBISWorld’s 2020 Industry Report. While a QSR consists of many different employee positions, cooks specifically account for 60% of the total wage expense for a restaurant. Miso Robotics’ automation solution can help increase the throughput and efficiency of these cooks, bringing down this majority expense and increasing their profitability in the kitchen.

 

Design and Development

 

Miso Robotics has built an autonomous kitchen assistant platform. On this platform, the Company has built NSF and ETL certified systems that grill burgers and operate the fryer. The autonomous cooking platform allows Miso to quickly develop new cooking skills. The Company has deployed systems to CaliBurger and Levy Restaurants with 10 patents pending, with 1 rewarded and 1 having been issued a notice of allowance.

 

Miso See - Miso’s platform can visually identify the food it is cooking and the cooking equipment it is operating. The Company uses the latest advancements in artificial intelligence to develop networks that learn the difference between food types and can identify and locate the equipment.

 

Miso Serve - The platform also has methods of scheduling cooking tasks that can update with new information as orders come in to optimize the cooking processes.

 

Miso Move - The platform can control several automation components, including a robot arm. We primarily work with existing manufacturers to use off-the-shelf robotics and adapt them to the commercial kitchen space. We do build custom manipulation components that are certified to work with food and have high levels of reliability in these dynamic environments.

Miso Fleet - The platform has a secured infrastructure to regularly deploy over-the-air updates as the system improves and gets better over time.

 

Miso Robotics has worked with NSF and ETL to get its kitchen assistants certified for use in commercial kitchens. The Company has deployed systems to CaliBurger and Levy restaurants that have cooked over 60,000 lbs of fried food and 12,000 burgers.

 

Miso continues to add new capabilities to the system, reduce its overall cost, and design easier ways to integrate it into more kitchen environments. Miso’s team of engineers is actively working on adding a 7th axis to a robot arm to increase the working area of the robot that will allow more end to end cooking.

 

Manufacturing

 

Miso currently manufactures the Miso Robotics Kitchen Assistants (1.0, 3.0, & 4.0) in our facility. The Company’s manufacturing workshop is listed with NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) and is also part of our ETL listing through Intertek. Both listings are regulatory requirements for utilizing the Miso Robotics Kitchen Assistants in a commercial kitchen.

 

The strategy for manufacturing will change over time dependent on production volumes and commitments. Miso’s pre-production Miso Robotics Kitchen Assistants will be produced at our manufacturing facility while the Company works on the cost and quality of the manufacturing process.

 

The Miso Robotics Kitchen Assistants currently uses a six-axis robotic arm. The Miso Robotic Kitchen Assistant is robotic arm agnostic and does not require a specific robotic arm manufacturer. The Miso Robotics Kitchen Assistant software platform enables the Miso Robotics Kitchen Assistant to work with any robotic arm. The components used to create the Miso Robotics Kitchen Assistant are sourced through licensed manufacturers. This allows Miso Robotics manufacturing to focus on software requirements and work closely with contract manufacturers to execute the production of Miso Robotics Kitchen Assistants. The Company is actively pursuing new vendors for the various products used to create the Kitchen Assistant.

 

Sales & Marketing

 

Miso Robotics has already acquired three large customers who have also been helpful during the design, development, and testing of Flippy (More information about those customers in the customer section below). Regarding further sales and marketing, Miso Robotics has obtained an enormous interest in the press. Since the Company’s founding in 2016, Miso’s robotic kitchen assistant, also known as “Flippy”, has been featured in numerous news and media outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, VentureBeat, USA Today, CBS News, BBC News, TechCrunch, The Spoon, and many more.

 

After testing our product's performance and business impact, the Company received great feedback from its first customer. CaliBurger recently signed a commercial contract worth $11 million for Flippy, which validated Miso's value proposition for the industry after having tested the robot in their stores since March 2018.

 

Similarly, the Company has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from its most recent customer, White Castle. After piloting Flippy for several months at a location in the Midwestern United States, White Castle decided to expand its relationship with Miso and target up to ten additional locations at which to deploy Flippy. This decision further validates Miso’s value proposition and led to increased interest from additional potential customers.

 

Miso is currently in deep discussions with several of the largest and most innovative quick service and fast food restaurant chains globally.

Competition

 

Although there are several competitors who have built robotic machines for use in kitchens, none are as smart and versatile as Flippy from Miso Robotics. Flippy can essentially do anything a human arm can do, which allows us to market it to existing restaurants, creating a much larger market for our product. Our 10 patents pending (two approved) create an equally important barrier to entry against potential competition.

 

Creator

   Total funding to date: $18.4 million

   Creator has built a robotic burger maker that creates burgers in an assembly line fashion. The machine takes up a large footprint in a restaurant and it is not ideal to be sold to existing restaurants because it only makes one style of burger and is not versatile enough to make anything else.

Spyce

   Total funding to date: $25.9 million

   Spyce is a robotic restaurant that creates vegetable-centric bowls. This company is not currently selling products to existing restaurants, which makes them an indirect competitor to Miso while it further validates the need for automation in the Kitchen.

Chowbotics

   Total funding to date: $17.3 million

   Chowbotics uses robots to solve problems in food service including compromised cleanliness and inefficiency. It is targeting cafeterias, restaurants, and hotels. Its first robot, Sally, offers fully-customized, fresh and healthy salads. Similar to Creator, their current solutions are not versatile enough to compete with Miso.

Lab2Fab

   Owned by Middleby Corp.

   Restaurant and bar management platform uses robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and augmented reality to improve both front-of-house and back-of-house operations.

Zume

   Total funding to date: $423 million

   Zume Pizza operates as a pizza delivery platform based in Mountain View, CA. The company uses robotics to make, bake, and deliver pizza. Much like Creator and Chowbotics, Zume is not a direct competitor because they do not sell their equipment to existing restaurants.

Dishcraft

   Total funding to date: $30.2 million

   Dishcraft is automating dish-washing for commercial kitchens. They pick up dirty dishes and take them back to their local facilities where they are washed by robotic systems.

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

 

The following discussion of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and the related notes included in this Offering Circular. The following discussion contains forward-looking statements that reflect our plans, estimates, and beliefs. Our actual results could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements.

 

Operating Results – Fiscal Years Ended December 31, 2018 and 2019

 

The Company continued to produce minimal revenue through the period ending December 31, 2019 as it ramps up business development activities.

 

Miso’s costs and expenses primarily consist of salaries from employees related to engineering, research and development, and business development. For the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2019, the Company spent $3,381,454 on research and development related costs, which primarily includes engineering salaries, $208,557 on sales and marketing, and $3,129,273 on overhead, general & administrative, legal and non-engineering salaries.

 

Since the period covered by our audited financial statements the Company has continued to lower its operating expenses by cutting costs from legal & professional fees, contractors, marketing, rent, and office expenses. The Company saw its prototyping and research & development costs increase in the second half of 2019 as it has ramped up its business development efforts and go-to-market strategy and expects those to continue to increase through the beginning of 2020.

 

Operating Results – Fiscal Periods Ended June 30, 2019 and 2020

 

While the Company saw a growth in revenue during the first half of 2020, the company continued to produce minimal revenue as it ramped up product and business development activities. Our net revenue for this period was $75,500 (unaudited), compared to $6,000 in net revenue for the period ended June 30, 2019.

 

Since the period covered by our audited financial statements the Company has continued to lower its operating expenses by cutting costs from legal & professional fees, contractors, marketing, rent, and office expenses. In the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 (unaudited), the Company had $3,166,706 in operating expenses, with $1,199,480 from Research and Development related expenses, $743,981 from Sales and Marketing expenses, and $1,223,245 from General and Administrative expenses. This is compared to the six-month period ended June 30, 2019, which had overall higher expenses as compared to this year, with a total of $3,787,161, spread across $1,934,018 from Research and Development, $166,180 from Sales and Marketing, and $1,686,963 from General and Administrative.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources – Fiscal Years Ended December 31, 2018 and 2019

 

As of December 31, 2019, the Company's cash on hand was $2,021,777, compared with $5,606,848 as of December 31, 2018.

 

In the last quarter of 2019, the Company closed on $2,744,667 of debt from a variety of its existing investors and related parties. This debt is in the form of promissory notes that bear 10% interest per annum, have a two-year term, and include the issuance of 273,919 common warrants. Details of this transaction can be found in the Interest of Management and Others in Certain Transactions section of this Form 1-K. Barring the conversion of these notes into equity, the Company plans to use proceeds from its current Regulation A+ round to pay back the noteholders. In 2020, the Company closed an additional $250,000 of debt at the same terms.

 

The Company is currently generating minimal revenue and will eventually require the continued infusion of new capital to continue business operations. As discussed above, the Company has recently reduced operating expenses and has had an infusion of capital in the form of promissory notes. While the Company expects to be able to operate over the next 12-18 months without additional capital, it will require additional funds in order to execute its go-to-market strategy and continue on a path to achieving significant revenue growth by the end of 2020. As of December 31, 2019, the Company’s Offering Circular had not yet been qualified by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), however in March 2020, the Company’s Offering Circular was qualified by the SEC. As of the date of this offering circular, the Company has raised $16,321,828 in this Regulation A+ round, issuing a total of 958,537 shares of Series C Preferred Stock. The Company expects approximately $350,000 in additional funds related to its engagement with SI Securities, LLC to be closed on, which would result in the issuance of an additional 20,397 shares of Series C Preferred Stock.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources – Fiscal Periods Ended June 30, 2019 and 2020

 

As of June 30th, 2020, the company’s Cash and Cash Equivalents balance was $1,239,003, compared with $2,047,833 as of June 30th, 2019.

 

The Company filed a Form 1-A with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a Regulation A+ financing round in November 2019. The Company is seeking to raise a minimum of $1,500,000 and a maximum of $30,000,000 by offering its Series C Preferred Stock at a price of $17.16 per share. The Company engaged SI Securities, LLC to serve as its sole and exclusive placement agent to assist in the placements of its securities. This Offering was qualified by the SEC on March 26, 2020. As of June 30, 2020, the Company had closed on $1,316,295 in capital by issuing 103,811 shares of Series C Preferred Stock in its Regulation A+ financing round. As of the date of this offering circular the Company had closed on $16,321,828 in capital by issuing 958,537 shares of Series C Preferred Stock. Approximately $16,186,813 of this total amount was received through SI Securities and a syndicate member, and approximately $135,015 was received in direct investments. The Company expects approximately $350,000 in additional funds related to its engagement with SI Securities, LLC to be closed on, which would result in the issuance of an additional 20,397 shares of Series C Preferred Stock. The Company is aware of the amount reflected on the SeedInvest website as $16,652,871 in gross receipts from its portion of the offering and is uncertain why the amount is inconsistent. Additionally, as of the date of this offering circular the Company closed its engagement with SI Securities, LLC and has engaged Dalmore Group, LLC to serve as its sole and exclusive placement agent to assist in the placements of its securities.

 

In the last quarter of 2019, the Company closed on $2,744,667 of debt from a variety of its existing investors and related parties. This debt is in the form of promissory notes that bear 10% interest per annum, have a two-year term, and include the issuance of 273,919 common warrants. The Company has also continued to close additional debt at the same terms. As of the date of this offering circular, this total has increased to $3,634,648 of debt from a variety of existing investors and related parties, with a total of 362,739 common warrants.

 

Plan of Operations

 

To date, Miso has generated minimal revenues while still hiring a large team of engineers. These engineers have focused their time on building prototypes of our automated kitchen assistants, delivering production ready models, and developing intellectual property. If Miso raises the minimum amount set out in our “Use of Proceeds”, the Company will begin hiring additional engineering, business development, marketing and support staff to assist in prototyping, research & development, and executing a go-to-market strategy with the goal of signing commercial agreements and generating significant revenue over the next 12-18 months.

 

Having already surpassed the minimum offering amount, the Company has hired additional personnel and begun to execute its go-to-market strategy across 2020. In Q2 2020 Miso Robotics and White Castle recently entered into an agreement to develop, pilot, and undertake a beta rollout of Miso Robotics' Flippy robot for White Castle's North American restaurants, and announced commercial availability of Flippy in October 2020.

 

15

 

 

The Company believes the minimum offering amount of proceeds (which we have already met) will satisfy its cash requirements to implement our plan of operations. If the Company is able to raise more than the minimum amount, it will be able to speed up research & development, production, and business development efforts to pursue multiple revenue streams simultaneously. If it raises the maximum amount of funds, the Company does not anticipate having to raise additional capital for the business. However, raising the minimum amount would likely result in the Company having to raise additional funds within 12 to 18 months.

 

Trend Information

 

The Company’s primary focus is to execute its go-to-market strategy with the goal of entering into one or more commercial agreements by the end of 2020. The Company is currently targeting quick service restaurants (QSRs), larger restaurant chains, systems integrators, and food and restaurant supply producers as potential customers.

 

The Company is already generating revenue via agreements currently in place with Levy Restaurants and CaliBurger and expects to enter into similar agreements with other partners over the upcoming months. The Company expects future agreements to be a mix of revenue generated from upfront purchase of equipment as well as monthly recurring revenue in the form of service and consulting agreements.

 

The restaurant and food services industry is ripe for disruption, especially as labor costs increase and the overall pool of labor in the industry because scarce. The Company believes it is in a unique position to take advantage of changes in the industry by helping future customers increase labor utilization, decrease labor costs, and improve overall throughput.

General

The company has authorized the issuance of Series C Preferred Stock (the “Series C Preferred Stock”), which contains substantially similar rights, preferences, and privileges, as other series of Preferred Stock as further described below.

 

Dividend Rights

The Corporation shall not declare, pay or set aside any dividends on shares of any other class or series of capital stock of the Corporation (other than dividends on shares of Common Stock payable in shares of Common Stock) unless (in addition to the obtaining of any consents required elsewhere in the Certificate of Incorporation) the holders of the Preferred Stock, including holders of the Series C Preferred Stock, then outstanding shall first receive, or simultaneously receive, on a pari passu basis, a dividend on each outstanding share of Preferred Stock in an amount at least equal to:

 

i) in the case of a dividend on Common Stock or any class or series that is convertible into Common Stock, that dividend per share of Preferred Stock as would equal the product of:

(A) the dividend payable on each share of such class or series determined, if applicable, as if all shares of such class or series had been converted into Common Stock and

(B) the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of a share of such series of Preferred Stock, in each case calculated on the record date for determination of holders entitled to receive such dividend or

 

ii) in the case of a dividend on any class or series that is not convertible into Common Stock, at a rate per share of Preferred Stock determined by

(A) dividing the amount of the dividend payable on each share of such class or series of capital stock by the original issuance price of such class or series of capital stock (subject to appropriate adjustment in the event of any stock dividend, stock split, combination or other similar recapitalization with respect to such class or series) and

(B) multiplying such fraction by an amount equal to the original issuance price of such class or series of capital stock; provided that, if the Corporation declares, pays or sets aside, on the same date, a dividend on shares of more than one class or series of capital stock of the Corporation, the dividend payable to the holders of a series of Preferred Stock shall be calculated based upon the dividend on the class or series of capital stock that would result in the highest dividend on such series of Preferred Stock.

 

Conversion Rights

Voluntary Conversion. Each share of Series C Preferred Stock shall be convertible, at the option of the holder thereof, at any time and from time to time, and without the payment of additional consideration by the holder thereof, into such number of fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock as is determined by dividing the applicable original issue price by the applicable conversion price in effect at the time of conversion.

 

Mandatory Conversion. Additionally, each share of Series C Preferred Stock will automatically convert into shares of Common Stock

 

-immediately prior to the closing at a price of at least $40.2976 per share (subject to appropriate adjustment in the event of any stock dividend, stock split, combination or other similar recapitalization with respect to the Common Stock) of a firm commitment underwritten public offering, registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), resulting in at least $20,000,000 of gross proceeds to the Company or
-upon the receipt by the Company of a written request for such conversion from the holders of a majority of the Preferred Stock then outstanding voting as a single class and on an as-converted basis.

 

20

 

 

Voting Rights

Each holder of the Company’s Preferred Stock is entitled to cast the number of votes equal to the number of whole shares of Common Stock into which the shares of Preferred Stock held by such holder are convertible on all matters submitted to a vote of the stockholders.

 

As long as any shares of Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding, the Company or any of its subsidiaries shall not, without first obtaining the approval (by vote or written consent as provided by law) of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Series C Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock, and Series A Preferred Stock, whether directly or indirectly by amendment, merger, consolidation, reorganization, recapitalization or otherwise: 

 

-liquidate, dissolve or wind-up the business and affairs of the Corporation, effect any merger or consolidation or any other Deemed Liquidation Event, effect any other recapitalization or reclassification of any of the Corporation’s capital stock, or consent to any of the foregoing;

 

-amend, alter or repeal any provision of the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws of the Corporation in a manner that adversely affects the powers, preferences or rights of the Preferred Stock or any series thereof;

 

  - create, or authorize the creation of, or issue or obligate itself to issue shares of, any additional class or series of capital stock unless the same ranks junior to each series of Preferred Stock with respect to the distribution of assets on the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, the payment of dividends and rights of redemption, or increase the authorized number of shares of Preferred Stock or increase the authorized number of shares of any additional class or series of capital stock;

 

-(i) reclassify, alter or amend any existing security of the Corporation that is pari passu with any series of Preferred Stock in respect of the distribution of assets on the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, the payment of dividends or rights of redemption, if such reclassification, alteration or amendment would render such other security senior to any series of Preferred Stock in respect of any such right, preference, or privilege or (ii) reclassify, alter or amend any existing security of the Corporation that is junior to any series of Preferred Stock in respect of the distribution of assets on the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, the payment of dividends or rights of redemption, if such reclassification, alteration or amendment would render such other security senior to or pari passu with any series of Preferred Stock in respect of any such right, preference or privilege;

 

  - purchase or redeem (or permit any subsidiary to purchase or redeem) or pay or declare any dividend or make any distribution on, any shares of capital stock of the Corporation other than (i) redemptions of or dividends or distributions on the Preferred Stock as expressly authorized, (ii) dividends or other distributions payable on the Common Stock solely in the form of additional shares of Common Stock, (iii) repurchases of stock from former employees, officers, directors, consultants or other persons who performed services for the Corporation or any subsidiary in connection with the cessation of such employment or service at the lower of the original purchase price or the then-current fair market value thereof;

-create, or hold capital stock in, any subsidiary that is not wholly owned (either directly or through one or more other subsidiaries) by the Corporation, or sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any capital stock of any direct or indirect subsidiary of the Corporation, or permit any direct or indirect subsidiary to sell, lease, transfer, exclusively license or otherwise dispose (in a single transaction or series of related transactions) of all or substantially all of the assets of such subsidiary; or

 

-increase or decrease the authorized number of directors constituting the Board of Directors.

 

Right to Receive Liquidation Preferences

In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation or Deemed Liquidation Event, the holders of shares of Series C Preferred Stock then outstanding shall be entitled to be paid out of the assets of the Corporation available for distribution to its stockholders before any payment shall be made to the holders of Common Stock and Series A Preferred Stock and on a pari passu basis with the Series B Preferred Stock , an amount per share equal to the greater of (i) the Series C Original Issue Price, plus any dividends declared but unpaid thereon, or (ii) such amount per share as would have been payable had all shares of Series C Preferred Stock been converted into Common Stock immediately prior to such liquidation, dissolution, winding up or Deemed Liquidation Event (the amount payable pursuant to this sentence is hereinafter referred to as the “Series C Liquidation Amount”). If upon any such liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation or Deemed Liquidation Event, the assets of the Corporation available for distribution to its stockholders shall be insufficient to pay the holders of shares of Series C Preferred Stock the full amount to which they shall be entitled, the holders of shares of Series C Preferred Stock shall share ratably in any distribution of the assets available for distribution in proportion to the respective amounts which would otherwise be payable in respect of the shares held by them upon such distribution if all amounts payable on or with respect to such shares were paid in full.

 

Anti-Dilution Rights

Holders of Series C Preferred Stock have the benefit of anti-dilution protective provisions that will be applied to adjust the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the shares of the Preferred Stock. If equity securities are subsequently issued by the Company at a price per share less than the Conversion Price of a series of Preferred Stock then in effect, the Conversion Price of the affected series of Preferred Stock will be adjusted using a broad-based, weighted-average adjustment formula as set out in the Restated Certificate.

 

Series A and Series B Preferred Stock

 

General

The company has authorized the issuance of two other series of Preferred Stock. The series are designated Series A Preferred Stock and Series B Preferred Stock. Each such series of Preferred Stock contains substantially similar rights, preferences, and privileges, except as described below.

 

Dividend Rights

Holders of Series A Preferred Stock and Series B Preferred Stock have the same dividend rights as holders of Series C Preferred Stock as outlined above.

 

Conversion Rights

Holders of Series A Preferred Stock and Series B Preferred Stock have the same conversion rights as holders of Series C Preferred Stock as outlined above.

 

22

 

 

Voting Rights

Holders of Series A Preferred Stock and Series B Preferred Stock have the same voting rights as holders of Series C Preferred Stock as outlined above, except that the holders of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock and Series B Preferred Stock, each exclusively and as a separate class, are entitled to elect one (1) director to represent their respective series.

 

Right to Receive Liquidation Preferences

Series B Preferred Stock. In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation or Deemed Liquidation Event, the holders of shares of Series B Preferred Stock then outstanding shall be entitled to be paid out of the assets of the Corporation available for distribution to its stockholders before any payment shall be made to the holders of Common Stock and the Series A Preferred Stock and on a pari passu basis with the Series C Preferred Stock, an amount per share equal to the greater of (i) the Series B Original Issue Price, plus any dividends declared but unpaid thereon, or (ii) such amount per share as would have been payable had all shares of Series B Preferred Stock been converted into Common Stock immediately prior to such liquidation, dissolution, winding up or Deemed Liquidation Event (the amount payable pursuant to this sentence is hereinafter referred to as the “Series B Liquidation Amount”). If upon any such liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation or Deemed Liquidation Event, the assets of the Corporation available for distribution to its stockholders shall be insufficient to pay the holders of shares of Series B Preferred Stock the full amount to which they shall be entitled, the holders of shares of Series B Preferred Stock shall share ratably in any distribution of the assets available for distribution in proportion to the respective amounts which would otherwise be payable in respect of the shares held by them upon such distribution if all amounts payable on or with respect to such shares were paid in full.

 

Series A Preferred Stock. In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation or Deemed Liquidation Event, upon the completion of the distribution to holders of Series B Preferred Stock and Series C Preferred Stock, the holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock then outstanding shall be entitled to be paid out of the assets of the Corporation available for distribution to its stockholders before any payment shall be made to the holders of Common Stock by reason of their ownership thereof, an amount per share equal to the greater of (i) the Series A Original Issue Price, plus any dividends declared but unpaid thereon, or (ii) such amount per share as would have been payable had all shares of Series A Preferred Stock been converted into Common Stock immediately prior to such liquidation, dissolution, winding up or Deemed Liquidation Event. If upon any such liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation or Deemed Liquidation Event, the assets of the Corporation available for distribution to its stockholders shall be insufficient to pay the holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock the full amount to which they shall be entitled, the holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall share ratably in any distribution of the assets available for distribution in proportion to the respective amounts which would otherwise be payable in respect of the shares held by them upon such distribution if all amounts payable on or with respect to such shares were paid in full.

 

Anti-Dilution Rights

Holders of Series A Preferred Stock and Series B Preferred Stock have the benefit of anti-dilution protective provisions that will be applied to adjust the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the shares of the Preferred Stock. If equity securities are subsequently issued by the Company at a price per share less than the Conversion Price of a series of Preferred Stock then in effect, the Conversion Price of the affected series of Preferred Stock will be adjusted using a broad-based, weighted-average adjustment formula as set out in the Restated Certificate.

  

Common Stock

 

General

The dividend and liquidation rights of the holders of the Common Stock are subject to and qualified by the rights, powers, and preferences of the holders of the Preferred Stock.

 

Voting Rights

Each holder of the Company’s Common Stock is entitled to one vote for each share on all matters submitted to a vote of the shareholder, except as provided by law or by the other provisions of the Certificate of Incorporation as outlined above. The holders of record of the shares of Common Stock, exclusively and as a separate class, shall be entitled to elect one (1) director of the Corporation.

 

Dividend Rights

The company will not declare, pay or set aside any dividends on shares of any other class or series of capital stock unless the holders of the Preferred Stock simultaneously receive along with all holders of outstanding shares of stock, a dividend on each outstanding share of Preferred Stock, as detailed in the Restated Certificate of Incorporation. The company has never declared or paid cash dividends on any of its capital stock and currently does not anticipate paying any cash dividends after this offering or in the foreseeable future.

 

23

 

 

Liquidation Rights

In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation or Deemed Liquidation Event, after the payment of all preferential amounts required to be paid to the holders of shares of Series C Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock and Series A Preferred Stock, the remaining assets of the Corporation available for distribution to its stockholders shall be distributed among the holders of shares of Common Stock, pro rata based on the number of shares held by each such holder.

 

Exclusive Jurisdiction

 

Under Article 12 of our Fifth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, the sole and exclusive judicial forum for the following actions will be the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware:

 

(1) Any derivative action or proceeding brought on behalf of the Company;

 

(2) Any action asserting a claim of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any director, officer or other employee of the Company to the Company or the Company’s stockholders;

 

(3) Any action asserting a claim against the Company arising pursuant to any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law or certificate of incorporation, or bylaws; or

 

(4) Any action asserting a claim against the Company governed by the internal affairs doctrine.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if, for any reason, the Delaware Chancery Court does not have jurisdiction over an action, then the action may be brought in other federal or state courts with appropriate personal or subject matter jurisdiction.

 

We believe the provision benefits us by providing increased consistency in the application of Delaware law in the types of lawsuits to which it applies and in limiting our litigation costs, the forum selection provision may limit investors’ ability to bring claims in judicial forums that they find favorable to such disputes and may discourage lawsuits with respect to such claims. The company has adopted the provision to limit the time and expense incurred by its management to challenge any such claims. As a company with a small management team, this provision allows its officers to not lose a significant amount of time travelling to any particular forum so they may continue to focus on operations of the company.

 

Section 22 of the Securities Act creates concurrent jurisdiction for federal and state courts over all suits brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Securities Act or the rules and regulations thereunder. We believe that the exclusive forum provision applies to claims arising under the Securities Act, but there is uncertainty as to whether a court would enforce such a provision in this context. Section 27 of the Exchange Act creates exclusive federal jurisdiction over all suits brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Exchange Act or the rules and regulations thereunder. As a result, the exclusive forum provision will not apply to suits brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Exchange Act or any other claim for which the federal courts have exclusive jurisdiction. Investors will not be deemed to have waived the company’s compliance with the federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder.

 

Plan of Distribution and Selling Security Holders

 

Plan of Distribution

 

The Company is offering a minimum of 87,413 and up to 1,748,252 shares of Series C Preferred Stock on a “best efforts” basis at a price of $20.59 per share. This represents a 20% increase in the share price effective as of the date of this filing. Any investors who begin the investment process as of the date of this filing will be able to purchase securities at a per share price of $20.59. Any investors who began the investment process prior to the date of this offering circular supplement will have one week to sign their subscription agreement and fund their investment at the previous price of $17.16. After a period of one week, the Company believes the investor information may become stale, resulting in a need for the investor to restart the investment process, which will be done at the new per share price. The Series C Preferred Stock may be converted into the Common Stock of the Company at the discretion of each investor, or automatically upon the occurrence of certain events, like an Initial Public Offering. As such, the Company is qualifying up to 1,748,252 shares of Series C Preferred Stock and up to 1,748,252 shares of Common Stock under this Offering Statement, of which this Offering Circular is part. The Company has engaged Dalmore Group, LLC as its broker/dealer of record. Dalmore Group, LLC is under no obligation to purchase any securities or arrange for the sale of any specific number or dollar amount of securities. As of the time of filing of this offering circular, the Company has sold the minimum number of shares in this offering.

After the Offering Statement has been qualified by the Commission, the Company will accept tenders of funds to purchase the Series C Preferred Stock. The Company may close on investments on a “rolling” basis (so not all investors will receive their shares on the same date), and these closings may occur anytime because the minimum offering amount has already been met.

Upon acceptance of the investors’ subscriptions, funds tendered by investors will be made available to the Company for its use.

The minimum investment before the share price increase was $995.28, or 58 shares of Series C Preferred Stock.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT

 

Report on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Miso Robotics, Inc., which comprise the balance sheets as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes to the financial statements.

 

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

 

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

 

Auditor’s Responsibility

 

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatements.

 

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

Opinion

 

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Miso Robotics, Inc. as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Emphasis of a Matter

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As described in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company has not generated profits since inception, has negative cash flows from operations, has sustained net losses of $6,990,832 and $6,647,708 in the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, and has an accumulated deficit of $15,656,440 as of December 31, 2019. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. Our opinion is not modified with respect to this matter.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1.NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Miso Robotics, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated on June 20, 2016 as Super Volcano, Inc. under the laws of the State of Delaware. The Company changed its name to Miso Robotics, Inc. on October 3, 2016. The Company develops and manufactures artificial intelligence-driven robots that assist chefs to make food at restaurants. The Company is headquartered in Pasadena, California.

 

2.GOING CONCERN

 

The Company has evaluated whether there are certain conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt and the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued.

 

The accompanying 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 not generated profits since inception, has sustained net losses of $6,990,832 and $6,647,708 for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, and has incurred negative cash flows from operations for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018. As of December 31, 2019, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $15,656,440. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for the next twelve months is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flows from operations to meet its obligations, which it has not been able to accomplish to date, and/or to obtain additional capital financing. No assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in these efforts.

 

3.SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accounting and reporting policies of the Company conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). The Company’s fiscal year is December 31.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the Company’s financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates and assumptions reflected in these financial statements include, but are not limited to, the valuations of common stock and stock options. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience, known trends and other market-specific or other relevant factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. On an ongoing basis, management evaluates its estimates when there are changes in circumstances, facts and experience. Changes in estimates are recorded in the period in which they become known. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents. The Company generally maintains balances in various operating accounts at financial institutions that management believes to be of high credit quality, in amounts that may exceed federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses related to its cash and cash equivalents and does not believe that it is subject to unusual credit risk beyond the normal credit risk associated with commercial banking relationships. At December 31, 2019 and 2018, all of the Company's cash and cash equivalents were held at one accredited financial institution. As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company had cash of $1,771,777 and $5,356,848, respectively, in excess of federally insured limits.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less at the date of purchase to be cash equivalents.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

Certain assets and liabilities of the Company are carried at fair value under GAAP. Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. Financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value are to be classified and disclosed in one of the following three levels of the fair value hierarchy, of which the first two are considered observable and the last is considered unobservable:

 

·Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

·Level 2—Observable inputs (other than Level 1 quoted prices), such as quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active for identical or similar assets or liabilities, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.

 

·Level 3—Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity that are significant to determining the fair value of the assets or liabilities, including pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies and similar techniques.

 

The carrying values of the Company’s assets and liabilities approximate their fair values.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are derived from products and services delivered to customers and are stated at their net realizable value. Each month, the Company reviews its receivables on a customer-by-customer basis and evaluates whether an allowance for doubtful accounts is necessary based on any known or perceived collection issues. Any balances that are eventually deemed uncollectible are written off against the allowance after all means of collection have been exhausted and the potential for recovery is considered remote. As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company had an allowance for doubtful accounts of $26,875 and $0, respectively.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory is stated at the lower of cost or market and accounted for using the specific identification cost method. As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, inventory consisted of robotic raw materials purchased from the Company’s suppliers. Management reviews its inventory for obsolescence and impairment and recorded a reserve for obsolete inventory of $0 and $23,299 as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense is recognized using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of each asset, as follows:

 

   Estimated Useful Life
Computer equipment and software  2 - 3 years
Kitchen equipment  5 years
Furniture and fixtures  5 years
Leasehold improvements  Shorter of lease term or 5 years

 

Estimated useful lives are periodically assessed to determine if changes are appropriate. Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost of these assets and related accumulated depreciation or amortization are eliminated from the balance sheet and any resulting gains or losses are included in the statement of operations loss in the period of disposal.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company continually monitors events and changes in circumstances that could indicate carrying amounts of long-lived assets may not be recoverable. When such events or changes in circumstances are present, the Company assesses the recoverability of long-lived assets by determining whether the carrying value of such assets will be recovered through undiscounted expected future cash flows. If the total of the future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of those assets, the Company recognizes an impairment loss based on the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or the fair value less costs to sell. The Company did not record any impairment losses on long-lived assets during the years ended December 31, 2019 or 2018.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Prior to the adoption of ASC 606, in 2018 the Company recognized revenue when it was realized or realizable and earned.  The Company considers revenue realized or realizable and earned when all of the following criteria are met: (i) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (ii) the product has been shipped or the services have been rendered to the customer, (iii) the sales price is fixed or determinable, and (iv) collectability is reasonably assured.

MISO ROBOTICS, INC.

 

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

The Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and its related amendments (collectively known as “ASC 606”), effective January 1, 2019 using the modified retrospective transition approach applied to all contracts. Therefore, the reported results for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 reflect the application of ASC 606. Management determined that there were no retroactive adjustments necessary to revenue recognition upon the adoption of the ASU 2014-09. The Company determines revenue recognition through the following steps:

 

·Identification of a contract with a customer;

 

·Identification of the performance obligations in the contract;

 

·Determination of the transaction price;

 

·Allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and

 

·Recognition of revenue when or as the performance obligations are satisfied.

 

Revenue is recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. As a practical expedient, the Company does not adjust the transaction price for the effects of a significant financing component if, at contract inception, the period between customer payment and the transfer of goods or services is expected to be one year or less.

 

The Company derives its revenue from hardware and software usage of its installed units. Sales tax is collected on sales in California and these taxes are recorded as a liability until remitted.

 

Hardware

 

Each product sold to a customer typically represents a distinct performance obligation. The Company satisfies its performance obligation and revenue is recorded at the point in time when products are installed as the Company has determined that this is the point that control transfers to the customer. The Company invoices customers upon delivery of the products, and payments from such customers are due upon invoicing. Orders or set-up fees that have been paid but performance obligations have not been met are recorded to deferred revenue.

 

Software

 

Software as a services (SaaS) and usage fees are recognized as revenue as the performance obligation is satisfied over time. Revenue is recognized monthly over the life of the contract. Service fees that have been invoiced or paid but performance obligations have not been met are recorded to deferred revenue.

 

Disaggregation of Revenue

 

The following table presents the Company's revenue disaggregated by revenue source:

 

   Year Ended 
   December 31, 
   2019   2018 
Hardware and installations  $88,120   $54,795 
Software and usage fees   10,908    - 
   $99,029   $54,795 

 

Significant Judgements

 

The Company estimates warranty claims reserves based on historical results and research and determined that a warranty reserve was not necessary as of December 31, 2019 and 2018.

 

Contract Balances

 

The following table provides information about receivables and contract liabilities from contracts with customers:

 

   December 31, 
   2019   2018 
Accounts receivable - related party, net of allowance for doubtful accounts of $26,875  $72,620   $- 
Contract liabilities - related party   467    - 

 

The Company invoices customers based upon contractual billing schedules, and accounts receivable are recorded when the right to consideration becomes unconditional. Contract liabilities represent a set-up fee prepayment received from a customer in advance of performance obligations met.

 

As of December 31, 2019, accounts receivable included $14,004 in unbilled receivables.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales consists primarily of inventory sold, parts used in building machines for sale, tooling and supplies, depreciation of certain equipment, allocations of facility costs, and allocations of personnel time in assembly, installation, and servicing.

 

Advertising and Promotion

 

Advertising and promotional costs are expensed as incurred. Advertising and promotional expense for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 amounted to approximately $3,000 and $104,000, respectively, which is included in sales and marketing expense.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Research and Development Costs

 

Costs incurred in the research and development of the Company’s products are expensed as incurred.

 

Concentrations

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, two related party customers accounted for 87% and 13% of the Company’s revenues, respectively. During the year ended December 31, 2018, 100% of the revenues were derived from a single, non-recurring agreement with a related party. As of December 31, 2019, two related party customers accounted for 90% and 10% of the Company’s accounts receivable.

 

The Company is dependent on third-party vendors to supply inventory and products for research and development activities and parts for building products. In particular, the Company relies and expects to continue to rely on a small number of vendors. The loss of one of these vendors may have a negative short-term impact on the Company’s operations; however, the Company believes there are acceptable substitute vendors that can be utilized longer-term.

 

Convertible Instruments

 

U.S. GAAP requires companies to bifurcate conversion options from their host instruments and account for them as free-standing derivative financial instruments according to certain criteria. The criteria include circumstances in which (a) the economic characteristics and risks of the embedded derivative instrument are not clearly and closely related to the economic characteristics and risks of the host contract, (b) the hybrid instrument that embodies both the embedded derivative instrument and the host contract is not re-measured at fair value under otherwise applicable generally accepted accounting principles with changes in fair value reported in earnings as they occur and (c) a separate instrument with the same terms as the embedded derivative instrument would be considered a derivative instrument. An exception to this rule is when the host instrument is deemed to be conventional as that term is described under applicable U.S. GAAP.

 

When the Company has determined that the embedded conversion options should not be bifurcated from their host instruments, the Company records, when necessary, discounts to convertible notes for the intrinsic value of conversion options embedded in debt instruments based upon the differences between the fair value of the underlying common stock at the commitment date of the note transaction and the effective conversion price embedded in the note. Debt discounts under these arrangements are amortized over the term of the related debt to their stated date of redemption. The Company also records, when necessary, deemed dividends for the intrinsic value of conversion options embedded in preferred shares based upon the differences between the fair value of the underlying common stock at the commitment date of the transaction and the effective conversion price embedded in the preferred shares.

 

Accounting for Preferred Stock

 

ASC 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity, includes standards for how an issuer of equity (including equity shares issued by consolidated entities) classifies and measures on its balance sheet certain financial instruments with characteristics of both liabilities and equity.

 

Management is required to determine the presentation for the preferred stock as a result of the redemption and conversion provisions, among other provisions in the agreement. Specifically, management is required to determine whether the embedded conversion feature in the preferred stock is clearly and closely related to the host instrument, and whether the bifurcation of the conversion feature is required and whether the conversion feature should be accounted for as a derivative instrument. If the host instrument and conversion feature are determined to be clearly and closely related (both more akin to equity), derivative liability accounting under ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging, is not required. Management determined that the host contract of the preferred stock is more akin to equity, and accordingly, liability accounting is not required by the Company. The Company has presented preferred stock within stockholders' equity.

 

Costs incurred directly for the issuance of the preferred stock are recorded as a reduction of gross proceeds received by the Company, resulting in a discount to the preferred stock. The discount is not amortized.

 

Deferred Offering Costs

 

The Company complies with the requirements of FASB ASC 340-10-S99-1 with regards to offering costs. Prior to the completion of an offering, offering costs are capitalized. The deferred offering costs are charged to additional paid-in capital or as a discount to debt, as applicable, upon the completion of an offering or to expense if the offering is not completed. As of December 31, 2019, the Company had $129,791 in deferred offering costs.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company measures all stock-based awards granted to employees and directors based on the fair value on the date of the grant and recognizes compensation expense for those awards, net of estimated forfeitures, over the requisite service period, which is generally the vesting period of the respective award. The Company issues stock-based awards with only service-based vesting conditions and records the expense for these awards using the straight-line method. The Company has not issued any stock-based awards with performance-based vesting conditions.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

For stock-based awards granted to non-employee consultants, compensation expense is recognized over the period during which services are rendered by such non-employee consultants until completed. At the end of each financial reporting period prior to completion of the service, the fair value of these awards is remeasured using the then-current fair value of the Company’s common stock and updated assumption inputs in the Black-Scholes option-pricing model.

 

The Company classifies stock-based compensation expense in its statement of operations in the same manner in which the award recipient’s payroll costs are classified or in which the award recipient’s service payments are classified.

 

The fair value of each stock option grant is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. The Company historically has been a private company and lacks company-specific historical and implied volatility information for its stock. Therefore, it estimates its expected stock price volatility based on the historical volatility of publicly traded peer companies and expects to continue to do so until such time as it has adequate historical data regarding the volatility of its own traded stock price. The expected term of the Company’s stock options has been determined utilizing the “simplified” method for awards that qualify as “plain-vanilla” options. The risk-free interest rate is determined by reference to the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant of the award for time periods approximately equal to the expected term of the award. Expected dividend yield is based on the fact that the Company has never paid cash dividends on common stock and does not expect to pay any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. Determining the appropriate fair value of stock-based awards requires the input of subjective assumptions. The assumptions used in calculating the fair value of stock-based awards represent management’s best estimates and involve inherent uncertainties and the application of management’s judgment. As a result, if factors change and management uses different assumptions, stock-based compensation expense could be materially different for future awards.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company uses the liability method of accounting for income taxes as set forth in ASC 740, Income Taxes. Under the liability method, deferred taxes are determined based on the temporary differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities using tax rates expected to be in effect during the years in which the basis differences reverse. A valuation allowance is recorded when it is unlikely that the deferred tax assets will not be realized. We assess our income tax positions and record tax benefits for all years subject to examination based upon our evaluation of the facts, circumstances and information available at the reporting date. In accordance with ASC 740-10, for those tax positions where there is a greater than 50% likelihood that a tax benefit will be sustained, our policy will be to record the largest amount of tax benefit that is more likely than not to be realized upon ultimate settlement with a taxing authority that has full knowledge of all relevant information. For those income tax positions where there is less than 50% likelihood that a tax benefit will be sustained, no tax benefit will be recognized in the financial statements.

 

Net Loss per Share

 

Net earnings or loss per share is computed by dividing net income or loss by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, excluding shares subject to redemption or forfeiture. The Company presents basic and diluted net earnings or loss per share. Diluted net earnings or loss per share reflect the actual weighted average of common shares issued and outstanding during the period, adjusted for potentially dilutive securities outstanding. Potentially dilutive securities are excluded from the computation of the diluted net loss per share if their inclusion would be anti-dilutive. As all potentially dilutive securities are anti-dilutive as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, diluted net loss per share is the same as basic net loss per share for each year. Potentially dilutive items outstanding as of December 31, 2019 and 2018 are as follows:

 

   Year Ended 
   December 31, 
   2019   2018 
Series A Preferred Stock (convertible to common stock)   769,784    769,784 
Series B Preferred Stock (convertible to common stock)   997,616    997,616 
Venture debt   350,959    - 
Common stock warrants   273,919    - 
Options to purchase common stock   419,570    801,668 
Total potentially dilutive shares   2,811,847    2,569,068 

 

*The outstanding notes are convertible into either shares of common or preferred stock. The convertible notes' potential shares were calculated based on principal and accrued interest and the 20% discount per the note agreements. The Company utilized the Series B Preferred price.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). This ASU requires a lessee to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability under most operating leases in its balance sheet. The ASU is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact on its financial statements.

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-07, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting (“ASU 2018-07”). ASU 2018-07 eliminates the separate accounting model for nonemployee share-based payment awards and generally requires companies to account for share-based payment transactions with nonemployees in the same way as share-based payment transactions with employees. The accounting remains different for attribution, which represents how the equity-based payment cost is recognized over the vesting period, and a contractual term election for valuing nonemployee equity share options. ASU 2018-07 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2018 with early adoption permitted. The Company has adopted this standard effective January 1, 2019.

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) and has issued subsequent amendments to this guidance. This new standard will replace all current guidance on this topic and eliminate all industry-specific guidance. The new revenue recognition standard provides a unified model to determine when and how revenue is recognized. The core principle is that a company should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration for which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 31, 2018. The standard may be applied either retrospectively to each period presented or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption. The Company has adopted this standard effective January 1, 2019.

 

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

9.INCOME TAXES

 

Deferred taxes are recognized for temporary differences between the basis of assets and liabilities for financial statement and income tax purposes. The differences relate primarily to depreciable assets using accelerated depreciation methods for income tax purposes, stock-based compensation expense, research and development and net operating loss carryforwards. As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company had net deferred tax assets before valuation allowance of $4,173,707 and $2,364,739, respectively. The following table presents the deferred tax assets and liabilities by source:

 

   December 31, 
   2019   2018 
Deferred tax assets:          
Net operating loss carryforwards  $3,998,973   $2,194,145 
Stock-based compensation   7,249    3,109 
Research and development tax credit carryforwards   69,036    69,036 
Depreciation timing difference   98,449    98,449 
Valuation allowance   (4,173,707)   (2,364,739)
Net deferred tax assets  $-   $- 

 

The Company recognizes deferred tax assets to the extent that it believes that these assets are more likely than not to be realized. In making such a determination, the Company considers all available positive and negative evidence, including future reversals of existing taxable temporary differences, projected future taxable income, tax-planning strategies, and results of recent operations. The Company assessed the need for a valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets and determined a full valuation allowance is required due to taxable losses for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, cumulative losses through December 31, 2019, and no history of generating taxable income. Therefore, valuation allowances of $4,173,707 and $2,364,739 were recorded as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Valuation allowance increased by $1,808,968 and $1,651,919 during the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Deferred tax assets were calculated using the Company’s combined effective tax rate, which it estimated to be 28.0%. The effective rate is reduced to 0% for 2019 and 2018 due to the full valuation allowance on its net deferred tax assets.

 

The Company’s ability to utilize net operating loss carryforwards will depend on its ability to generate adequate future taxable income. At December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company had net operating loss carryforwards available to offset future taxable income in the amounts of $14,306,571 and $7,849,690, which may be carried forward and will expire between 2036 and 2039 in varying amounts.

 

The Company has evaluated its income tax positions and has determined that it does not have any uncertain tax positions. The Company will recognize interest and penalties related to any uncertain tax positions through its income tax expense.

 

In December 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Act”) was enacted into law and the new legislation contains several key tax provisions that affected the Company, including a reduction of the corporate income tax rate to 21% effective January 1, 2018, among others. The Company is required to recognize the effect of the tax law changes in the period of enactment, such as determining the transition tax, remeasuring deferred tax assets and liabilities, as well as reassessing the net realizability of our deferred tax assets and liabilities. The tax rate change reduced the Company’s net deferred tax assets by $973,736 at December 31, 2018. However, this change had no impact to the Company’s net loss as the Company has not incurred a tax liability or expense for the year ended December 31, 2018 and has a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets.

 

The Company may in the future become subject to federal, state and local income taxation though it has not been since its inception, other than minimum state tax. The Company is not presently subject to any income tax audit in any taxing jurisdiction, though its 2017-2019 tax years remain open to examination.

12.SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern” and on March 10, 2020, declared it to be a pandemic. Actions taken around the world to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus include restrictions on travel, and quarantines in certain areas, and forced closures for certain types of public places and businesses. The coronavirus and actions taken to mitigate it have had and are expected to continue to have an adverse impact on the economies and financial markets of many countries, including the geographical area in which the Company operates. The Company’s research and development activities have been impacted due to the lack of full access to the Company’s facilities and its resources. The effects of the potential impact cannot be estimated at this time.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Miso Robotics, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated on June 20, 2016 as Super Volcano, Inc. under the laws of the State of Delaware. The Company changed its name to Miso Robotics, Inc. on October 3, 2016. The Company develops and manufactures artificial intelligence-driven robots that assist chefs to make food at restaurants. The Company is headquartered in Pasadena, California.

 

2.GOING CONCERN

 

The Company has evaluated whether there are certain conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt and the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued.

 

The accompanying 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 not generated profits since inception, has sustained net losses of $3,421,240 and $3,780,979 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and has incurred negative cash flows from operations for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019. As of June 30, 2020, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $19,077,680. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for the next twelve months is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flows from operations to meet its obligations, which it has not been able to accomplish to date, and/or to obtain additional capital financing. No assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in these efforts.

 

3.SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

The accounting and reporting policies of the Company conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). The Company’s fiscal year is December 31.

 

Unaudited Interim Financial Information

The accompanying balance sheet as of June 30, 2020 and the statements of operations, stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 are unaudited. The unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the audited annual financial statements and, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the fair statement of the Company’s financial position as of June 30, 2020 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019. The financial data and other information disclosed in these notes related to the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 are also unaudited. The results for the six months ended June 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020, any other interim periods, or any future year or period.

 

Use of Estimates

The preparation of the Company’s financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates and assumptions reflected in these financial statements include, but are not limited to, the valuations of common stock and stock options. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience, known trends and other market-specific or other relevant factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. On an ongoing basis, management evaluates its estimates when there are changes in circumstances, facts and experience. Changes in estimates are recorded in the period in which they become known. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents. The Company generally maintains balances in various operating accounts at financial institutions that management believes to be of high credit quality, in amounts that may exceed federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses related to its cash and cash equivalents and does not believe that it is subject to unusual credit risk beyond the normal credit risk associated with commercial banking relationships. At June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, all of the Company's cash and cash equivalents were held at one accredited financial institution. As of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had cash of $989,003 and $1,771,777, respectively, in excess of federally insured limits.

MISO ROBOTICS, INC.

 

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less at the date of purchase to be cash equivalents.

 

Fair Value Measurements

Certain assets and liabilities of the Company are carried at fair value under GAAP. Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. Financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value are to be classified and disclosed in one of the following three levels of the fair value hierarchy, of which the first two are considered observable and the last is considered unobservable:

 

·Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

·Level 2—Observable inputs (other than Level 1 quoted prices), such as quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active for identical or similar assets or liabilities, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.

 

·Level 3—Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity that are significant to determining the fair value of the assets or liabilities, including pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies and similar techniques.

 

The carrying values of the Company’s assets and liabilities approximate their fair values.

 

Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable are derived from products and services delivered to customers and are stated at their net realizable value. Each month, the Company reviews its receivables on a customer-by-customer basis and evaluates whether an allowance for doubtful accounts is necessary based on any known or perceived collection issues. Any balances that are eventually deemed uncollectible are written off against the allowance after all means of collection have been exhausted and the potential for recovery is considered remote. As of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had an allowance for doubtful accounts of $26,875.

 

Inventory

Inventory is stated at the lower of cost or market and accounted for using the specific identification cost method. As of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, inventory consisted of robotic raw materials purchased from the Company’s suppliers. Management reviews its inventory for obsolescence and impairment and did not record a reserve for obsolete inventory for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.

 

Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense is recognized using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of each asset, as follows:

 

   Estimated Useful Life
Computer equipment and software  2 - 3 years
Kitchen equipment  5 years
Furniture and fixtures  5 years
Leasehold improvements  Shorter of lease term or 5 years

 

Estimated useful lives are periodically assessed to determine if changes are appropriate. Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost of these assets and related accumulated depreciation or amortization are eliminated from the balance sheet and any resulting gains or losses are included in the statement of operations loss in the period of disposal.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

The Company continually monitors events and changes in circumstances that could indicate carrying amounts of long-lived assets may not be recoverable. When such events or changes in circumstances are present, the Company assesses the recoverability of long-lived assets by determining whether the carrying value of such assets will be recovered through undiscounted expected future cash flows. If the total of the future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of those assets, the Company recognizes an impairment loss based on the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or the fair value less costs to sell. The Company did not record any impairment losses on long-lived assets during the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.

 

Revenue Recognition

Prior to the adoption of ASC 606, in 2018 the Company recognized revenue when it was realized or realizable and earned.  The Company considers revenue realized or realizable and earned when all of the following criteria are met: (i) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (ii) the product has been shipped or the services have been rendered to the customer, (iii) the sales price is fixed or determinable, and (iv) collectability is reasonably assured.

 

The Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and its related amendments (collectively known as “ASC 606”), effective January 1, 2019 using the modified retrospective transition approach applied to all contracts. Therefore, the reported results for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 reflect the application of ASC 606. Management determined that there were no retroactive adjustments necessary to revenue recognition upon the adoption of the ASU 2014-09. The Company determines revenue recognition through the following steps:

 

·Identification of a contract with a customer;
·Identification of the performance obligations in the contract;
·Determination of the transaction price;
·Allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and
·Recognition of revenue when or as the performance obligations are satisfied.

 

Revenue is recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. As a practical expedient, the Company does not adjust the transaction price for the effects of a significant financing component if, at contract inception, the period between customer payment and the transfer of goods or services is expected to be one year or less.

 

The Company derives its revenue from hardware and software usage of its installed units. Sales tax is collected on sales in California and these taxes are recorded as a liability until remitted. The Company also generates revenue from consulting services.

 

Hardware

 

Each product sold to a customer typically represents a distinct performance obligation. The Company satisfies its performance obligation and revenue is recorded at the point in time when products are installed as the Company has determined that this is the point that control transfers to the customer. The Company invoices customers upon delivery of the products, and payments from such customers are due upon invoicing. Orders or set-up fees that have been paid but performance obligations have not been met are recorded to deferred revenue.

 

Software

Software as a services (SaaS) and usage fees are recognized as revenue as the performance obligation is satisfied over time. Revenue is recognized monthly over the life of the contract. Service fees that have been invoiced or paid but performance obligations have not been met are recorded to deferred revenue.

 

Consulting

Consulting services are recognized at the point in time when the performance obligation has been completed.
