PROSPECTUS SUMMARY

 

This summary highlights information contained elsewhere in this prospectus. This summary does not contain all of the information you should consider before investing in the common stock of The Cannaisseur Group, Inc. (referred to herein as the “Company,” “The Cannaisseur Group,” “TCGI,” “we,” “our,” and “us”). You should read this entire prospectus carefully, including “Risk Factors,” “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition or Plan of Operations,” and our financial statements and the related notes appearing at the end of this prospectus, before making an investment decision.

 

Overview

 

The Cannaisseur Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “TCG”) was established in December 2020. On January 4, 2021 the Company acquired a fifty-one percent (51%) interest in Atlanta CBD Inc. (d/b/a as Inno Medicinals) (“Atlanta CBD”). Atlanta CBD is engaged in hemp cultivation, extraction, manufacturing, distribution, and retail through CBD stores.

 

Atlanta CBD is a hemp products supplier and retailer. The Company sells its retail hemp products through trade name, Inno Medicinals, located in Atlanta Georgia. The Company intends in the future to engage in cultivation and extraction of hemp flower, through a trade name Requisite Technologies. Requisite Technologies will be dedicated to producing and selling premium oil, tinctures, and capsules, edibles, and topicals. Our mission is to grow one of the best hemp plants and produce high-quality infused products to provide customers with products and services they trust. We expect that, when established, Requisite Technologies will have the ability to grow hemp year-round, aiming to grow up to 12 different strains, and can produce from seedling to finished product.

  

Corporate History

 

TCG is a Delaware corporation. It was formed to engage in the hemp business. In January 2021, it acquired a fifty-one percent (51%) interest in Atlanta CBD, a Georgia company that engaged in the hemp business The Company’s plan is to build on its current business by acquiring assets from companies actively engaged in hemp cultivation to develop and grow its hemp business. Potential assets for acquisition, include, CBD cultivation, processing, and distribution equipment and infrastructure from companies that grow and develop CBD products for the consumer market. These assets will support and further develop Atlanta CBD’s operations. The Company plans to use a combination of equity (common stock) and funds raised from private placements to acquire assets.

 

Atlanta CBD is a family-owned business, founded in October 2018. It was born from the desire to offer people an alternative approach to good health. They are a CBD boutique, offering many leading brands of hemp extracts. Atlanta CBD began planning for a retail hemp store in September of 2018. Cannabis sativa (hemp) extracts were chosen because the founders believe the extracts have the potential to help people. Knowledge gained since opening a retail location in June of 2019 has given them a greater understanding of the industry and the people that purchase hemp products.

 

Atlanta CBD is committed to increasing public awareness of CBD and helping grow the hemp community statewide. The Company plans to primarily grow innovative hemp, and in the future intends to source up to 15% of its hemp through a network of local farms to encourage and promote diversity within our community. It also intends to grow hemp and develop proprietary hemp genetics to be used in supplying stores as well as, working with local/ regional farmers to grow the bulk of hemp needed for retail products.

 

The Company owns 51% of Atlanta CBD. The Company’s majority shareholders are Floretta Gogo and Xavier Carter, who also owns the remaining 49% of Atlanta CBD. Ms. Gogo and Mr. Carter each own approximately 19% of the outstanding common stock of the Company. Ms. Gogo and Mr. Carter are the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and the Chief Operating Officer of the Company, respectively. They both run the day-to-day operations of Atlanta CBD. Pursuant to the acquisition agreement between the Company and Atlanta CBD, the Company is entitled to 51% of the net profits from the operations of Atlanta CBD.

 

Atlanta CBD has outstanding 1,518 shares of preferred stock. The preferred stock has redeemable features that allow the preferred shareholders to request repayment of their investment. The preferred shareholders are also entitled to profit distributions equal to the lesser of (i) 25% interest on their investment, or (ii) the difference between the ownership percentage of management and 50%, which will be distributed to management, until a 35% profit goal achieved. Preferred shareholders are entitled to a return of their investment upon 15 days’ notice given to the Atlanta CBD after any distribution.

Emerging Growth Company Status

 

We are an “emerging growth company” as defined under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, commonly referred to as the “JOBS Act.” We will remain an “emerging growth company” for up to five years, or until the earliest of (i) the last day of the fiscal year in which our total annual gross revenues exceed $1 billion, (ii) the date that we become a “large accelerated filer” as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which would occur if the market value of our ordinary shares that is held by non-affiliates exceeds $700 million as of the last business day of our most recently completed second fiscal quarter, or (iii) the date on which we have issued more than $1 billion in non-convertible debt during the preceding three year period.

 

As an “emerging growth company,” we may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not “emerging growth companies” including, but not limited to:

 

·not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (we will also not be subject to the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404(b) as long as we are a “smaller reporting company,” which includes issuers that had a public float of less than $75 million as of the last business day of their most recently completed second fiscal quarter);

 

·reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in our periodic reports and proxy statements; and

 

·exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and shareholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.

 

In addition, Section 107 of the JOBS Act provides that an “emerging growth company” can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards. Under this provision, an “emerging growth company” can delay the adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. However, we are choosing to “opt out” of such extended transition period, and as a result, we will comply with new or revised accounting standards on the relevant dates on which adoption of such standards is required for non-emerging growth companies. Section 107 of the JOBS Act provides that our decision to opt out of the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards is irrevocable.

RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. An investor should carefully consider the following risk factors and the other information in this registration statement before investing in our common stock. Our business and results of operations could be seriously harmed by any of the following risks.

 

A pandemic, epidemic or outbreak of an infectious disease in the markets in which the Company operates or that otherwise impacts its facilities and customers could adversely impact the Company’s business.

 

If a pandemic, epidemic, or outbreak of an infectious disease including the recent outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, or other public health crisis were to affect the Company’s markets or facilities, or its customers, the Company’s business could be adversely affected. Consequences of the coronavirus outbreak are resulting in disruptions in or restrictions on the Company’s ability to travel and hold live events. If such an infectious disease broke out at the Company’s office, facilities or work sites, its operations may be affected significantly, its productivity may be affected, and the Company may incur increased costs. If the persons and entities with which the Company contracts are affected by an outbreak of infectious disease, its live events may be delayed or cancelled, and the Company may incur increased costs. If the Company’s employees or subcontractors with whom it works were affected by an outbreak of infectious disease, the Company’s labor supply may be affected, and it may incur increased labor costs. In addition, the Company may experience difficulties with certain suppliers or with vendors in its supply chains, and its business could be affected if the Company becomes unable to procure essential equipment, supplies or services in adequate quantities and at acceptable prices. Further, an infectious outbreak may cause disruption to the U.S. economy, or the local economies of the markets in which the Company operates, increase costs associated with its business, affect job growth and consumer confidence, or cause economic changes that the Company cannot anticipate. Overall, the potential impact of a pandemic, epidemic or outbreak of an infectious disease with respect to the Company’s markets or its facilities is difficult to predict and could adversely impact the Company’s business. In response to the COVID-19 situation, federal, state, and local governments (or other governments or bodies) are considering placing, or have placed, restrictions on travel and conducting or operating business activities. Currently those restrictions are very fluid and evolving. the Company has been and will continue to be impacted by those restrictions. Given that the type, degree, and length of such restrictions are not known at this time, the Company cannot predict the overall impact of such restrictions on it, its customers, its subcontractors, and others with whom the Company works or the overall economic environment. As such, the impact these restrictions may have on the Company’s financial position, operating results and liquidity cannot be reasonably estimated at this time, but the impact may be material. In addition, due to the speed with which the COVID-19 situation is developing and evolving, there is uncertainty around its ultimate impact on public health, business operations and the overall economy; therefore, the negative impact on the Company’s financial position, operating results and liquidity cannot be reasonably estimated at this time, but the impact may be material.

 

7

 

 

Our industry may become subject to expanded regulation and increased enforcement by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)

 

The FDA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act regulates the formulation, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, and distribution of food, dietary supplements, drugs, cosmetic, medical devices, biologics, and tobacco products. Our hemp-derived CBD products are not intended to be drugs. Accordingly, we have not been required to obtain FDA approval for our existing hemp-derived CBD products. Moreover, the regulatory status of hemp-derived CBD products is in a state of flux as FDA attempts to determine the appropriate manner in which to regulate these products. Thus, the regulatory approach is still evolving, and we may be required to seek FDA’s approval to market food and dietary supplements containing hemp-derived CBD. It is also possible that FDA may simply issue a regulation setting forth the conditions in which such products may be marketed, or it may simply prohibit these products. However, because FDA’s regulatory process is in its infancy, we cannot predict the likely outcome. (See preceding Section, “Government Regulation”.) In addition, the FTC under the Federal Trade Commission Act (“FTC Act”) requires that product advertising be truthful, substantiated, and non-misleading. We believe that our advertising meets these requirements. However, the FTC may bring a challenge at any time to evaluate our compliance with the FTC Act.

 

Increases in the cost of ingredients, labor and other costs could adversely affect our operating results.

 

Our principal products contain hemp-derived CBD oil. Increases in the cost of ingredients in our products could have a material adverse effect on our operating results. Significant price increases, market conditions, weather, acts of God and other disasters could materially affect our operating results. An increase in our operating costs could adversely affect our profitability. Factors such as inflation, increased labor and employee benefit costs and increased energy costs may adversely affect our operating costs. Many of the factors affecting costs are beyond our control and we may not be able to pass along these increased costs to our customers.

 

We do not have long-term contracts with many of our suppliers, and as a result they could seek to increase prices or fail to deliver.

 

We typically do not rely on written contracts or long-term arrangements with our suppliers. Although we have not experienced significant problems with our suppliers, our suppliers may implement significant price increases or may not meet our requirements in a timely fashion, if at all. The occurrence of any of the foregoing could have a material adverse effect on our operating results.

 

Any prolonged disruption in the operations of any of our packaging facilities could harm our business.

 

Any prolonged disruption in the operations of any facilities that perform our packaging, whether due to technical or labor difficulties, destruction or damage to the facility, real estate issues or other reasons, could result in increased costs and reduced revenues and our profitability and business results could be harmed.

 

Loss of key personnel or our inability to attract and retain new qualified personnel could hurt our business and inhibit our ability to operate and grow successfully.

 

Our ability to successfully grow our brand depends on our ability to attract and retain professionals with talent, integrity, enthusiasm, and loyalty to our corporate team. If we are unable to attract or retain key personnel, our profitability and growth potential could be harmed.

 

8

 

 

We may not be able to adequately protect our intellectual property, which could harm the value of our brand and branded products and adversely affect our business.

 

We depend in large part on our brand and branded products as well as on our proprietary processes and believe that they are especially important to our business. We rely on a combination of trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and similar intellectual property rights to protect our brand and branded products. The success of our business depends on our continued ability to use our existing trademarks to increase brand awareness and further develop our branded products in both domestic and international markets. We have registered, or will register, certain trademarks in the United States and may elsewhere. We may not be able to adequately protect our trademarks and our use of these trademarks may result in liability for trademark infringement, trademark dilution or unfair competition. We may from time to time be required to institute litigation to enforce our trademarks or other intellectual property rights, or to protect our trade secrets. Such litigation could result in substantial costs and diversion of resources and could negatively affect our sales, profitability and business results regardless of whether we are able to successfully enforce our rights.

 

Pandemics, natural disasters and geo-political events could adversely affect the Company’s business.

 

Pandemics, natural disasters, including hurricanes, cyclones, typhoons, tropical storms, floods, earthquakes and tsunamis, weather conditions, including winter storms, droughts and tornadoes, whether as a result of climate change or otherwise, and geo-political events, including civil unrest or terrorist attacks, that affect the Company, or other service providers, could adversely affect the Company’s business.

 

We do not have any outside Board Directors which could create a conflict of interests and pose a risk from a corporate governance perspective.

 

Our Board of Directors consists of five directors, which means that we have no outside or independent directors. The lack of independent directors may prevent the Board from being independent from management in its judgments and decisions and its ability to pursue the Board responsibilities without undue influence. For example, an independent Board can serve as a check on management, which can limit management taking unnecessary risks. Furthermore, the lack of independent directors creates the potential for conflicts between management and the diligent independent decision-making process of the Board. Furthermore, our lack of outside directors deprives our company of the benefits of various viewpoints and experience when confronting the challenges we face. With no independent director sitting on the Board of Directors, it will be difficult for the Board to fulfill its traditional role as overseeing management.

 

Risks Relating to Our Financial Condition

 

All businesses are affected by an unstable economy.

 

Even through there may be downturns in the economy, consumers will always need essential goods and services regardless of the economy. However, economic downturns almost inevitably signal cutbacks in overall spending, which would translate specifically to us as decreased revenue, if any, as we expect that part of our income stream will be commissions on customer purchases and interest on customers’ balances.

 

We have a limited operating history and operate in a new industry, and we may not succeed.

 

The consumer products business is a highly competitive and risky business, and such competition from companies much bigger than us could adversely affect our operating results.

 

9

 

 

We compete with many national, regional, and local businesses. We could experience increased competition from existing or new companies in our channel, which could create increasing pressures to grow ours. If we are unable to maintain our competitive position, we could experience downward pressure on prices, lower demand for our products, reduced margins, the inability to take advantage of new business opportunities and the loss of channel share, which would have an adverse effect on our operating results. Other factors that could affect our business are:

 

·Consumer tastes

 

·National, regional, or local economic conditions

 

·Disposable purchasing power

 

·Demographic trends; and

 

·The price of special ingredients that go into our products.

 

Our financial statements may not be comparable to those of other companies.

 

Pursuant to Section 107(b) of the JOBS Act, we have elected to use the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards under Section 102(b)(2) of The JOBS Act. This election allows us to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards that have different effective dates for public and private companies until those standards apply to private companies. As a result, our financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with public company effective dates, and our stockholders and potential investors may have difficulty in analyzing our operating results if comparing us to such companies.

 

The success of our new and existing products and services is uncertain.

 

We have committed, and expect to continue to commit, significant resources and capital to develop and market existing product enhancements and new products. We cannot assure you that we will achieve market acceptance for all of our products, or of new products that we may offer in the future. Moreover, these new products may be subject to significant competition with offerings by new and existing competitors. In addition, new products and enhancements may pose a variety of challenges and require us to attract additional qualified employees. The failure to successfully develop and market these new products or enhancements could seriously harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

We cannot predict our future capital needs and we may not be able to secure additional financing.

 

We will need to raise additional funds in the future to fund our working capital needs and to fund further expansion of our business. We may require additional equity or debt financings, collaborative arrangements with corporate partners or funds from other sources for these purposes. No assurance can be given that necessary funds will be available for us to finance our development on acceptable terms, if at all. Furthermore, such additional financings may involve substantial dilution of our stockholders or may require that we relinquish rights to certain of our technologies or products. In addition, we may experience operational difficulties and delays due to working capital restrictions. If adequate funds are not available from operations or additional sources of financing, we may have to delay or scale back our growth plans.

 

Our annual and quarterly financial results are subject to significant fluctuations depending on various factors, many of which are beyond our control, which could adversely affect our ability to satisfy our debt obligations as they become due.

 

Our sales and operating results can vary significantly from quarter to quarter and year to year depending on various factors, many of which are beyond our control. These factors include:

 

·Variations in the timing and volume of our sales

 

·The timing of expenditures in anticipation of future sales

 

·Sales promotions by us and our competitors

 

·Changes in competitive and economic conditions generally

 

·Foreign currency exposure

 

10

 

 

Consequently, our results of operations may decline quickly and significantly in response to changes in order patterns or rapid decreases in demand for our products. We anticipate that fluctuations in operating results will continue in the future. The Company’s operating results may vary. We may incur net losses. The Company expects to experience variability in its revenues and net profit. While we intend to fully implement our business plan, we may experience net losses. Factors expected to contribute to this variability include, among other things:

 

·The general economy

 

·The regulatory environment pertaining to our products

 

·Climate, seasonality and environmental factors

 

·Consumer demand

 

·Transportation costs

 

·Competition in products

 

You should further consider, among other factors, our prospects for success in light of the risks and uncertainties encountered by companies that, like us, are in their early stages. For example, unanticipated expenses, problems, and technical difficulties may occur and they may result in material delays in the operation of our business, in particular with respect to our new products. We may not successfully address these risks and uncertainties or successfully implement our operating strategies. If we fail to do so, it could materially harm our business to the point of having to cease operations and could impair the value of our common stock to the point investors may lose their entire investment.

 

As we expand our operations, we may be unable to successfully manage our future growth.

 

Since inception, our business has grown. This growth has placed substantial strain on our management, operational, financial and other resources. If we are able to continue expanding our operations in the United States and in other countries where we believe our products will be successful, as planned, we may experience periods of rapid growth, which will require additional resources. Any such growth could place increased strain on our management, operational, financial and other resources, and we will need to train, motivate, and manage employees, as well as attract management, sales, finance and accounting, international, technical, and other professionals. In addition, we will need to expand the scope of our infrastructure and our physical resources. Any failure to expand these areas and implement appropriate procedures and controls in an efficient manner and at a pace consistent with our business objectives could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.

 

Any future litigation could have a material adverse impact on our results of operations, financial condition and liquidity, particularly since we do not currently have director and officer (“D&O”) insurance. Our lack of insurance may also make it difficult for us to retain and attract talented and skilled directors and officers. While we intend to apply for D&O insurance, we cannot guarantee that such application will be accepted.

 

Despite our significant efforts in product quality control, we face risks of litigation from customers and others in the ordinary course of business, which may divert our financial and management resources. Any adverse litigation or publicity may negatively impact our financial condition and results of operations.

 

Claims of illness or injury relating to product quality or handling are common in the consumer products industry. While we believe our processes and high standards of quality control will minimize these instances, there is always a risk of occurrence, and so despite our best efforts to regulate quality control, litigation may occur. In that event, our financial condition, operating results and cash flows could be harmed.

 

11

 

 

From time to time we may be subject to litigation, including potential stockholder derivative actions. Risks associated with legal liability are difficult to assess and quantify, and their existence and magnitude can remain unknown for significant periods of time. To date we have no directors and officers liability (“D&O”) insurance to cover such risk exposure for our directors and officers. Such insurance generally pays the expenses (including amounts paid to plaintiffs, fines, and expenses including attorneys’ fees) of officers and directors who are the subject of a lawsuit as a result of their service to the Company. While we intend to attempt to obtain such insurance, there can be no assurance that we will be able to do so at reasonable rates or at all, or in amounts adequate to cover such expenses should such a lawsuit occur. While neither Delaware law nor our articles of incorporation or bylaws require us to indemnify or advance expenses to our officers and directors involved in such a legal action, we expect that we would do so to the extent permitted by Delaware law. Without D&O insurance, the amounts we would pay to indemnify our officers and directors should they be subject to legal action based on their service to the Company could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations and liquidity. Further, our lack of D&O insurance may make it difficult for us to retain and attract talented and skilled directors and officers, which could adversely affect our business.

 

The Company may be unable to manage growth, which may impact its potential profitability.

 

Successful implementation of the Company’s business strategy requires it to manage its growth. Growth could place an increasing strain on the Company’s management and financial resources. To manage growth effectively, the Company will need to:

 

  Establish definitive business strategies, goals and objectives;

 

  Maintain a system of management controls; and

 

  Attract and retain qualified personnel, as well as develop, train, and manage management-level and other employees.

 

If the Company fails to manage its growth effectively, its business, financial condition, or operating results could be materially harmed, and the Company’s stock price may decline.

 

The Company operates in a highly competitive environment, and if it is unable to compete with its competitors, its business, financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and prospects could be materially adversely affected.

 

The Company operates in a highly competitive environment. The Company’s competition includes all other companies that are in the business of hemp cultivation and sales or other related companies. A highly competitive environment could materially adversely affect the Company’s business, financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and prospects.

 

The Company may not be able to compete successfully with other established companies offering the same or similar services and, as a result, the Company may not achieve its projected revenue and user targets.

 

If the Company is unable to compete successfully with other businesses in its existing markets, it may not achieve its projected revenue and/or customer targets. The Company competes with both start-up and established companies. Compared to the Company’s business, some of its competitors may have greater financial and other resources, have been in business longer, have greater name recognition and be better established.

 

Our prior operating results may not be indicative of our future results.

 

You should not consider prior operating results with respect to revenues, net income or any other measure to be indicative of our future operating results. The timing and amount of future revenues will depend almost entirely on our ability to sell our products to new customers. Our future operating results will depend upon many other factors, including:

 

12

 

 

·The level of product and price competition;

 

·Our success in expanding our distribution network and managing our growth;

 

·Our ability to develop and market product enhancements and new products;

 

The timing of product enhancements, activities of and acquisitions by competitors

 

The Company’s lack of adequate D&O insurance may also make it difficult for it to retain and attract talented and skilled directors and officers.

 

In the future the Company may be subject to additional litigation, including potential class action and stockholder derivative actions. Risks associated with legal liability are difficult to assess and quantify, and their existence and magnitude can remain unknown for significant periods of time. To date, the Company has not obtained directors and officers liability (“D&O”) insurance. Without adequate D&O insurance, the amounts the Company would pay to indemnify its officers and directors should they be subject to legal action based on their service to the Company could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and liquidity. Furthermore, the Company’s lack of adequate D&O insurance may make it difficult for it to retain and attract talented and skilled directors and officers, which could adversely affect its business.

 

The Company does not expect to pay dividends in the future; any return on investment may be limited to the value of the Company’s common stock.

 

The Company does not currently anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. The payment of dividends on the Company’s common stock will depend on earnings, financial condition and other business and economic factors affecting it at such time as the board of directors may consider relevant. The Company’s current intention is to apply net earnings, if any, in the foreseeable future to increasing the Company’s capital base and development and marketing efforts. There can be no assurance that the Company will ever have sufficient earnings to declare and pay dividends to the holders of its common stock, and in any event, a decision to declare and pay dividends is at the sole discretion of the Company’s board of directors. If the Company does not pay dividends, its common stock may be less valuable because a return on investment will only occur if its stock price appreciates.

 

MARKET FOR OUR COMMON STOCK AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS

 

Our stock price is not quoted or traded on any securities market. The common stock price is likely to be highly volatile and could be subject to wide fluctuations in response to various factors, some of which are beyond the Company’s control or unrelated to its operating performance.

 

We intend to have our common stock begin trading on the OTC Markets Group, Inc. under the symbol “TCGI”. The OTC Markets is a network of security dealers that buy and sell stock.

 

The Company’s common stock, if quoted or traded, will be thinly traded so the Company’s stockholders may be unable to sell at or near ask prices or at all if they need to sell their shares to raise money or otherwise desire to liquidate their shares.

 

There is no active trading market for our common stock, and if a market for our common stock does not develop our investors will be unable to sell their shares.

 

There is currently no active trading market for our common stock and such a market may not develop or be sustained. We currently plan to apply to have our common stock listed on the OTC Markets Group, Inc. In order to do this, we must file an application with OTC Markets Group and meet all of its required listing standards. We cannot provide our investors with any assurance that our common stock will be traded on the OTC Markets or, if traded, that a public market will materialize. If our common stock is not listed on the OTC Markets Group, Inc. or if a public market for our common stock does not develop, then investors may not be able to resell the shares of our common stock and may lose all of their investment.

 

An active and visible public trading market for our Common Stock may not develop.

 

We do not currently have an active or visible trading market. We cannot predict whether an active market for our common stock will ever develop in the future. In the absence of an active trading market:

 

·Investors may have difficulty buying and selling or obtaining market quotations;

 

·Market visibility for shares of our common stock may be limited; and

 

·A lack of visibility for shares of our common stock may have a depressive effect on the market price for shares of our Common Stock.

 

13

 

 

The market price of our common stock may be volatile.

 

The market price for our common stock may be volatile and subject to wide fluctuations in response to factors including the following:

 

·Actual or anticipated fluctuations in our quarterly or annual operating results

 

·Changes in financial or operational estimates or projections

 

·Conditions in markets generally

 

·Changes in the economic performance or market valuations of companies similar to ours

 

·Announcements by us or our competitors of new products, acquisitions, strategic partnerships, joint ventures, or capital commitments

 

·Our intellectual property position; and general economic or political conditions in the United States or elsewhere.

 

In addition, the securities market has from time-to-time experienced significant price and volume fluctuations that are not related to the operating performance of companies. These market fluctuations may also materially and adversely affect the market price of shares of our common stock.

 

Our issuance of additional common stock or preferred stock may cause our common stock price to decline, which may negatively impact your investment.

 

Issuances of a substantial number of additional shares of our common or preferred stock, or the perception that such issuances could occur, may cause prevailing market prices for our common stock to decline. In addition, our board of directors is authorized to issue additional series of shares of preferred stock without any action on the part of our stockholders. Our board of directors also has the power, without stockholder approval, to set the terms of any such series of shares of preferred stock that may be issued, including voting rights, conversion rights, dividend rights, preferences over our common stock with respect to dividends or if we liquidate, dissolve, or wind up our business and other terms. If we issue cumulative preferred stock in the future that has preference over our common stock with respect to the payment of dividends or upon our liquidation, dissolution or winding up, or if we issue preferred stock with voting rights that dilute the voting power of our common stock, the market price of our common stock could decrease.

 

Our common stock is subject to the SEC’s penny stock rules and accordingly, broker-dealers may have trouble in completing customer transactions and trading activity in our securities may be adversely affected.

 

The SEC has adopted regulations, which generally define “penny stock” to be an equity security that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to specific exemptions. The market price of our common stock is less than $5.00 per share and therefore would be a “penny stock” according to SEC rules, unless we are listed on a national securities exchange. Under these rules, broker-dealers who recommend such securities to persons other than institutional accredited investors must:

 

·Make a special written suitability determination for the purchaser;

 

·Receive the purchaser’s prior written agreement to the transaction;

 

·Provide the purchaser with risk disclosure documents which identify certain risks associated with investing in “penny stocks” and which describe the market for these “penny stocks” as well as a purchaser’s legal remedies;

 

·Obtain a signed and dated acknowledgment from the purchaser demonstrating that the purchaser has received the required risk disclosure document before a transaction in a “penny stock” can be completed.

 

14

 

 

As our common stock is subject to these rules, broker-dealers may find it difficult to effectuate customer transactions and trading activity in our securities may be adversely affected. As a result, the market price of our securities may be depressed, and you may find it more difficult to sell your securities.

 

The market for penny stocks has experienced numerous frauds and abuses, which could adversely impact investors in our stock.

 

OTC Market securities are frequent targets of fraud or market manipulation, both because of their generally low prices and because reporting requirements are less stringent than those of the stock exchanges such as NASDAQ. Patterns of fraud and abuse include:

 

·Control of the market for the security by one or a few broker-dealers that are often related to the promoter or issuer;

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Our management is aware of the abuses that have occurred historically in the penny stock market.

 

Among the factors that could affect our stock price are:

 

·Industry trends and the business situation of our suppliers

 

·Actual or anticipated fluctuations in our quarterly financial and operating results and operating results that vary from the expectations of our management or of securities analysts and investors

 

·our failure to meet the expectations of the investment community and changes in investment community recommendations or estimates of our future operating results

 

·Announcements of strategic developments, acquisitions, dispositions, financings, product developments and other materials events by us or our competitors

 

·Regulatory and legislative developments

 

·Litigation

 

·General market conditions

 

·Other domestic and international macroeconomic factors unrelated to our performance

 

·Changes in key personnel

 

Sales by our stockholders of a substantial number of shares of our common stock in the public market could adversely affect the market price of our common stock.

 

A substantial portion of our total outstanding shares of common stock may be sold into the market at any time, or a substantial portion of our total outstanding shares of preferred stock may be converted to common stock and sold into the market at any time. Some of these shares are owned by the management of the Company, and we believe that such holders have no current intention to either convert their preferred stock into common stock or to sell a significant number of shares of their common stock into the market. If all of the major stockholders were to decide to sell large amounts of stock over a short period of time such sales could cause the market price of our common stock to drop significantly, even if our business is performing well.

 

Our business is dependent upon continued market acceptance by consumers.

 

We are substantially dependent on continued market acceptance of our products by consumers. Although we believe that our products in the United States are gaining increasing consumer acceptance, we cannot predict that this trend will continue in the future.

 

15

 

 

The ability to hire additional qualified employees, and the timing of such hiring and our ability to control costs. We may require additional capital to finance our operations in the future, but that capital may not be available when it is needed and could be dilutive to existing stockholders.

 

We may require additional capital for future operations. We plan to finance anticipated ongoing expenses and capital requirements with funds generated from the following sources:

 

·Cash provided by operating activities

 

·Available cash and cash investments

 

·Capital raised through debt and equity offerings

 

Current conditions in the capital markets are such that traditional sources of capital may not be available to us when needed or may be available only on unfavorable terms. Our ability to raise additional capital, if needed, will depend on conditions in the capital markets, economic conditions and a number of other factors, many of which are outside our control. Accordingly, we cannot assure you that we will be able to successfully raise additional capital at all or on terms that are acceptable to us. If we cannot raise additional capital when needed, it may have a material adverse effect on our liquidity, financial condition, results of operations and prospects. Further, if we raise capital by issuing stock, the holdings of our existing stockholders will be diluted.

 

If we raise capital by issuing debt securities, such debt securities would rank senior to our common stock upon our bankruptcy or liquidation. In addition, we may raise capital by issuing equity securities that may be senior to our common stock for the purposes of dividend and liquidating distributions, which may adversely affect the market price of our common stock. Finally, upon bankruptcy or liquidation, holders of our debt securities and shares of preferred stock and lenders with respect to other borrowings will receive a distribution of our available assets prior to the holders of our common stock. Additional equity offerings may dilute the holdings of our existing stockholders or reduce the market price of our common stock, or both.

 

Requirements associated with being a reporting public company will require significant company resources and management attention.

 

We have filed a Form S1 registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Once the Form S1 becomes effective, we will be subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act and the other rules and regulations of the SEC relating to public companies. We are working with independent legal, accounting and financial advisors to identify those areas in which changes should be made to our financial and management control systems to manage our growth and our obligations as an SEC reporting company. These areas include corporate governance, internal control, internal audit, disclosure controls and procedures and financial reporting and accounting systems. We have made, and will continue to make, changes in these and other areas, including our internal control over financial reporting. However, we cannot provide assurances that these and other measures we may take will be sufficient to allow us to satisfy our obligations as an SEC reporting company on a timely basis.

 

In addition, compliance with reporting and other requirements applicable to SEC reporting companies will create additional costs for the Company and will require the time and attention of management and may require the hiring of additional personnel and legal, audit and other professionals. We cannot predict or estimate the amount of the additional costs we may incur, the timing of such costs or the impact that our management’s attention to these matters will have on our business.

 

We are an emerging growth company and, as a result of the reduced disclosure and governance requirements applicable to emerging growth companies, our common stock may be less attractive to investors.

  

16

 

 

 

We are an emerging growth company, as defined in the JOBS Act, and we are eligible to take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements applicable to other public companies, but not to emerging growth companies, including, but not limited to, a requirement to present only two years of audited financial statements, an exemption from the auditor attestation requirement of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure about executive compensation arrangements pursuant to the rules applicable to smaller reporting companies and no requirement to seek non-binding advisory votes on executive compensation or golden parachute arrangements, although some of these exemptions are available to us as a smaller reporting company (i.e. a company with less than $75 million of its voting equity held by affiliates). We have elected to adopt these reduced disclosure requirements. We cannot predict if investors will find our common stock less attractive as a result of our taking advantage of these exemptions. If some investors find our common stock less attractive as a result of our choices, there may be a less active trading market for our common stock and our stock price may be more volatile.

 

We do not expect to pay any cash dividends in the foreseeable future.

 

We intend to retain our future earnings, if any, in order to reinvest in the development and growth of our business and, therefore, do not intend to pay dividends on our common stock for the foreseeable future. Any future determination to pay dividends will be at the discretion of our board of directors and will depend on our financial condition, results of operations, capital requirements, and such other factors as our board of directors deems relevant. Accordingly, investors may need to sell their shares of our common stock to realize a return on their investment, and they may not be able to sell such shares at or above the price paid for them.

 

We can sell additional shares of common stock without consulting stockholders and without offering shares to existing stockholders, which would result in dilution of existing stockholders’ interests in the Company and could depress our stock price.

 

Our Articles of Incorporation authorize 100,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of which 35,950,000 were outstanding as of December 31, 2021. Moreover, our Board of Directors is authorized to issue additional shares of our common stock and preferred stock. Although our Board of Directors intends to utilize its reasonable business judgment to fulfill its fiduciary obligations to our then existing stockholders in connection with any future issuance of our capital stock, the future issuance of additional shares of our common stock or preferred stock convertible into common stock would cause immediate, and potentially substantial, dilution to our existing stockholders, which could also have a material effect on the market value of the shares.

 

Because we will be subject to “penny stock” rules, the level of trading activity in our stock may be reduced.

 

Broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in “penny stocks” are regulated by penny stock rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Penny stocks generally are equity securities with a price of less than $5.00 (other than securities registered on some national securities exchanges). The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer to deliver to its customers a standardized risk disclosure document that provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market prior to carrying out a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction, and, if the broker-dealer is the sole market maker, the broker-dealer must disclose this fact and the broker-dealer’s presumed control over the market, and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. In addition, broker-dealers who sell these securities to persons other than established customers and “accredited investors” must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. Consequently, these requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity, if any, in the secondary market for a security subject to the penny stock rules.

 

17

 

  

Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) sales practice requirements may also limit your ability to buy and sell our stock, which could depress our share price.

 

FINRA rules require that in recommending an investment to a customer, a broker-dealer must have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer. Prior to recommending speculative low-priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer’s financial status, tax status, investment objectives and other information. Under interpretations of these rules, FINRA believes that there is a high probability that speculative low-priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. FINRA requirements make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend that their customers buy our common stock, which may limit your ability to buy and sell our stock and have an adverse effect on the market for our shares, depressing our share price.

DETERMINATION OF OFFERING PRICE

 

Prior to the Offering, there has been no public market for the Shares. The initial public offering price was determined by management. The principal factors considered in determining the initial public offering price include:

 

  the information set forth in this Registration Statement and otherwise available;

 

  our history and prospects and the history of and prospects for the industries in which we compete;

 

  our past and present financial performance;

 

  our prospects for future earnings and the present state of our development;

 

  the general condition of the securities markets at the time of this Offering;

 

 

the recent market prices of, and demand for, publicly traded common stock of generally comparable companies; and other factors deemed relevant by us.

 

19

 

 

DILUTION

 

If you purchase shares in this Offering, your ownership interest in our Common Stock will be diluted immediately, to the extent of the difference between the price to the public charged for each share in this Offering and the net tangible book value per share of our Common Stock after this Offering.

 

Our historical net tangible book value as of June 30, 2022 was ($0.00) based on 35,950,000 outstanding shares of our Common Stock outstanding on June 30, 2022. Historical net tangible book value per share equals the amount of our total tangible assets less total liabilities, divided by the total number of shares of our Common Stock outstanding, all as of the date specified.

 

After giving effect to (i) the sale of 15,000,000 shares of our Common Stock in this offering at the assumed initial public offering price of $0.23 per share and (ii) the application of the net proceeds from this offering, our pro forma net tangible book value would be $3,530,640, or $0.07 per share. This represents an immediate increase in pro forma net tangible book value of $0.07 per share to our existing investors and an immediate dilution in pro forma net tangible book value of ($0.16) per share to new investors.

 

The following table illustrates this dilution on a per share of common stock basis:

 

Assumed initial public offering price per share   $ 0.23  
Net tangible book value per share as of June 30, 2022   $ (0.00 )
Increase in net tangible book value per share attributable to new investors   $ 0.23  
Pro forma net tangible book value per share after this offering   $ 0.07  
Dilution in pro forma net tangible book value per share to new investors   $ (0.16 )

 

MARKET FOR OUR COMMON STOCK AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS

 

We intend to have our common stock begin trading on the OTC Markets Group, Inc. under the symbol “TCGI”. The OTC Markets is a network of security dealers that buy and sell stock.

 

As of June 30, 2022, there were approximately 22 holders of record of our common stock.

  

Dividends. We have never declared or paid any cash dividends on our common stock, nor do we anticipate paying any in the foreseeable future. We expect to retain any future earnings to finance our operations and expansion. The payment of cash dividends in the future will be at the discretion of our Board of Directors and will depend upon our earnings levels, capital requirements, any restrictive loan covenants and other factors the Board considers relevant.

 

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITIONS AND PLAN OF OPERATION

 

The following Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Plan of Operations (“MD&A”) is intended to help you understand our historical results of operations during the periods presented and our financial condition. This MD&A should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes to consolidated financial statements and contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made. We undertake no obligation to update such statements to reflect events that occur or circumstances that exist after the date on which they are made.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The financial statements are prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

Some of the statements under “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and elsewhere in this Prospectus constitute forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements relate to expectations, beliefs, projections, future plans and strategies, anticipated events or trends and similar matters that are not historical facts. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “potential,” “should,” and “would” or the negatives of these terms or other comparable terminology.

 

20

 

 

You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The cautionary statements set forth in this Form S-1 identify important factors, which you should consider in evaluating our forward-looking statements. These factors include, among other things:

 

  ·

The unprecedented impact of COVID-19 pandemic on our business, customers, employees, consultants, service providers, stockholders, investors and other stakeholders;

 

  · The speculative nature of the business we intend to develop;

 

  · Our reliance on suppliers and customers;

 

  ·

Our dependence upon external sources for the financing of our operations, particularly given that there are concerns about our ability to continue as a “going concern;”

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

This discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based on our financial statements that have been prepared under accounting principle generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and 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. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

A summary of significant accounting policies is included in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements included in this Registration Statement. Of these policies, we believe that the following items are the most critical in preparing our financial statements.

 

USE OF ESTIMATES: Management uses estimates and assumptions in preparing these financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Those estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported revenues and expenses.

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION –

 

Revenue from sale of goods is measured at fair value of the consideration received or receivable and is recognized in the statement of comprehensive income of the Company when significant risks and rewards of the ownership of the goods have been transferred to the buyers.

 

ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE: Accounts Receivable (AR) is the payment which the Company will receive from its customers who have purchased its goods & services in the last month of the year and on credit terms. Usually the credit period is short, approximately a few days.

 

ASSESSMENT OF COLLECTABILITY:

 

·Receivables supervisor is authorized to collect delinquent accounts

 

·The Treasurer has the authority to assign accounts to a third party for collection

 

·Recording of Accounts Receivable: All amounts due on physical delivery of the merchandise from the drop shipper, must be promptly recorded as an accounts receivable. Each account receivable must be recorded and maintained until payment is received or the recorded amount is written off or extinguished.

 

·An adequate provision for doubtful accounts must be established. When all reasonable efforts fail to collect an account receivable and it has been approved for write off, the related provision for doubtful accounts should be reduced.

 

·Control and Subsidiary Accounts: The accounting system incorporates control accounts, where applicable, to ensure the completeness and accuracy of individual accounts. The Receivables supervisor must maintain subsidiary accounts for individual debtors in a manner that discloses, at a given point in time, the aggregate amount owed by each debtor as well as individual amounts making up the aggregate amount. Monthly, the subsidiary accounts for each accounts receivable must be reconciled with the control account.

 
· Checks that are returned from the bank as nonnegotiable are assessed a returned cheque charge. If there are 2 cheques returned from the same customer within a month, no further cheques will be accepted from the customer unless the cheques are certified, until there is an acceptable payment history for a further one year period.

 

24

 

 

·Statements to Debtors: Statements must be issued to debtors, on a monthly basis, providing meaningful and concise information on the status of their debts.

 

·Accounts receivable are considered overdue when a debtor does not pay or resolve the debt within 30 days from the invoice date or a written request for payment to the debtor.

 

·All actions taken to collect overdue accounts must be documented.

 

·If there is no response after the initial contact at the 30-day point (within 30-day period 60 days from date of invoice), accounts will be forwarded to Treasury Staff to take prompt and vigorous action to collect overdue accounts receivable.

 
· Accounts receivable, in most cases, should be at least 30 days overdue (i.e., 60 days after invoice notification), before staff advises debtors that their accounts are overdue and that the accounts may be:

 

oturned over to a private collection agency;

 

osubject to legal action;

 

ocredit privileges will be revoked; and/or account may be suspended.

DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

TCG is a Delaware corporation. It was formed to engage in the hemp business. In January 2021, it acquired a fifty-one percent (51%) interest in Atlanta CBD. The Company’s plan is to acquire assets from companies actively engaged in hemp cultivation to develop and grow the business. Potential assets for acquisition, include, CBD cultivation, processing, and distribution equipment and infrastructure from companies that grow and develop CBD products for the consumer market. These assets will support and further develop Atlanta CBD’s operations. The Company plans to use a combination of equity (common stock) and funds raised from private placements to acquire assets.

 

Atlanta CBD is a family-owned business, founded in October 2018. It was born from the desire to offer people an alternative approach to good health. They are a CBD boutique, offering many leading brands of hemp extracts. Atlanta CBD began planning for a retail hemp store in September of 2018. Cannabis sativa (hemp) extracts were chosen because the founders believe the extracts have the potential to help people. Knowledge gained since opening a retail location in June of 2019 has given them a greater understanding of the industry and the people that purchase hemp products.

 

Atlanta CBD is committed to increasing public awareness of CBD and helping grow the hemp community statewide. The Company plans to primarily grow innovative hemp, and in the future intends to source up to 15% of its hemp through a network of local farms to encourage and promote diversity within our community. It also intends to grow hemp and develop proprietary hemp genetics to be used in supplying stores as well as, working with local/ regional farmers to grow the bulk of hemp needed for retail products.

 

The Company owns 51% of Atlanta CBD. The Company’s majority shareholders are Floretta Gogo and Xavier Carter, who also owns the remaining 49% of Atlanta CBD. Ms. Gogo and Mr. Carter each own approximately 19% of the outstanding common stock of the Company. Ms. Gogo and Mr. Carter are the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and the Chief Operating Officer of the Company, respectively. They both run the day-to-day operations of Atlanta CBD. Pursuant to the acquisition agreement between the Company and Atlanta CBD, the Company is entitled to 51% of the net profits from the operations of Atlanta CBD.

 

Atlanta CBD has outstanding 1,518 shares of preferred stock. The preferred stock has redeemable features that allow the preferred shareholders to request repayment of their investment. The preferred shareholders are also entitled to profit distributions equal to the lesser of (i) 25% interest on their investment, or (ii) the difference between the ownership percentage of management and 50%, which will be distributed to management, until a 35% profit goal achieved. Preferred shareholders are entitled to a return of their investment upon 15 days’ notice given to the Company after any distribution.

 

Atlanta CBD is a hemp products supplier and retailer. The Company sells its retail hemp products through trade name, Inno Medicinals, located in Atlanta Georgia. The Company intends in the future to engage in cultivation and extraction of hemp flower, through a trade name Requisite Technologies. Requisite Technologies will be dedicated to producing and selling premium oil, tinctures, and capsules, edibles, and topicals. Our mission is to grow one of the best hemp plants and produce high-quality infused products to provide customers with products and services they trust. We expect that,, when established, Requisite Technologies will have the ability to grow hemp year-round, aiming to grow up to 12 different strains, and can produce from seedling to finished product.

 

We are currently in the research and development stage of a line of CBD-based beauty products -soaps, bath salts and bath bombs, made with proprietary formulas. Atlanta CBD markets its products using internet advertising and also promotes its products via social media and hemp related trade shows.

 

Hemp-derived CBD is distinguishable from CBD derived from marijuana. Hemp-derived CBD contains not more than 0.3 percent of THC, while marijuana contains in excess of this amount. Marijuana is regulated under the Controlled Substances Act. We do not believe that our hemp-derived CBD products are regulated under the Controlled Substances Act, but under the Agricultural Act of 2018, known as the “Farm Bill”.

 

25

 

  

The 2018 Farm Bill allows for the interstate sale and transfer of hemp-derived products for commercial or other purposes. It also puts no restrictions on the sale, transport, or possession of hemp-derived products, so long as those items are produced in a manner consistent with the law. The Farm Bill ensures that any cannabinoid—components of CBD —that is derived from hemp will be legal, if that hemp is produced in a manner consistent with the Farm Bill, associated federal regulations, associated state regulations, and by a licensed grower as defined in the Farm Bill.

 

The Company believes that all products sold and marketed by it, are in compliance with the Farm Bill and all other federal and state law and regulation.

 

All the full Spectrum Hemp CBD Infused products the Company sells are pharmacist formulated and nano-amplified for rapid absorption and maximum bioavailability. Products categories include full spectrum bath bombs, face serums, hair and beard serums, edibles, topicals, sports recovery, ingestible, and vapes to name a few. Product categories also include various sub-categories and are distributed to brick-and-mortar resellers, and online merchants. Inno Medicinals product line, because of its size, is constantly in flux as new products are added and products are culled based on several factors including, but not limited to, consumer acceptance, inventory levels, and replacement as the result of incremental improvement.

 

While most of the products that Inno Medicinals sells are geared to human health and wellness, the company does sell pet products such as recovery oil and skin conditioner, and full spectrum tincture. These products offer pet owners a new way to support their pet’s mood and wellness in a non-invasive, non-toxic way. The global pet care industry is expected to reach $110 billion in 2017, according to Euromonitor Research (The State Of Global Pet Care: Trends And Growth Opportunities, September 2017). Technavio, a leading market research firm, recently analyzed the global pet care industry and forecasted a CAGR of 5% between 2016-2020 (Global Pet Dietary Supplements Market 2018-2022, March 2018). According to that report, rising pet ownership combined with increased consumer spending on premium natural and organic pet care products are fundamental factors driving that growth.

 

26

 

  

The Company also offers for sale a majority of its products direct to consumers via its website, www.innomedicinals.com.

 

Consumer markets served by the Company are extensive. In terms of geography, the products are sold wherever legal and the Company stipulates to its distribution channels that the products may only be sold to end-user persons eighteen years of age or older (See Item 1A “Risk Factors” for a further explanation of the laws regarding the sale of hemp-derived CBD products). The sale of hemp-based products is legal nationwide via the Farm Bill. We provide a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) on all our product sales. The COA is displayed on our products and on our website in accordance with the Farm Bill. We deliver our products to our customers, via in-store sales, trade shows, and online sales.

 

Product Formulation and Production

 

The Company uses its commercial suppliers and contract manufacturers for its product research and development, formulation, quality testing, production and packaging. These suppliers and manufacturers hold, as required, the necessary regulatory and other licenses/permits specific to each one’s activity. The Company outsources fulfillment as well. In addition to direct sales by the Company, the Company has the option to drop ship its products. This allows the third-party supplier to ship the merchandise directly to such customers. Any and all raw materials constituting active ingredients in its products are routinely tested by a third-party laboratory for purity and consistency of active ingredient concentrations. The Company, through Atlanta CBD, owns its own propriety formulas for the products it manufactures, which it regards as trade secrets (the Company does not own any patents nor has any pending), and continuously is engaged in both new product development and product incremental improvement with its suppliers. New product development and incremental improvement costs are absorbed by each respective supplier as part of their overhead in providing services to the Company. Our raw materials include terpenes, hemp flower, and CBD oil. Our principal suppliers of these materials are Sweet Leaf, Life Cycle Hemp, Flow Gardens, American Indian Hemp, and Bluebird Botanicals. Raw materials are available upon request to our suppliers and there are no written agreements between our suppliers, the Company or Atlanta CBD.

 

Sales Channels

 

Holistic healers are very accepting of CBD and its benefits, making them a good fit for CBD products. The Company intends to establish relationships with holistic healers and acupuncturists that attended their CBD seminars. The goal is to work with a small group of six to twelve practitioners and collaborate on creating a sales channel within their networks. There is a proliferation of small businesses that sell CBD products. From 2020 to 2021 the Company had an agreement with Cryogenics where the Company was selling its products in Cryogenics stores. The relationship was not profitable, and the Company discontinued the relationship in 2021. The Company does not currently have any relationships with holistic healers or acupuncturists, but it intends to pursue this sales channel in the future.

 

The Markets for Our Products

 

Market research from BDS Analytics is predicting a compound annual growth rate of 49 percent by 2024 across all distribution channels and that the CBD market, combined with THC products, will create a total market of $45 billion for cannabinoids by 2024. (Forbes, May 20, 2019).

 

The growth of the market shows that hemp-derived CBD products are becoming “mainstream” as consumers increasingly perceive them as providing wellness benefits.

 

Competition

 

Currently, in the United States, we are not aware of any businesses that can demonstrate or claim a dominant market share of the growing CBD products market. Competition, outside those companies that provide over .03 percent THC containing CBD in states where that is allowed under state law, is limited to numerous brands with geocentric distribution footprints. Overall, there are no major pharmaceutical manufacturing companies marketing general purpose CBD products into the overall CBD market at this time, although the Company is expecting such an entry in the future. Competition also includes many small regional marketers/packagers of CBD oil containing products that have limited distribution and economic resources.

Government Regulation

 

The Company’s CBD Products Are Not Subject to the Controlled Substances Act

 

The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (“AIA” or “the Act”) exempted hemp-derived cannabidiol products (“hemp-derived CBD products”) from the federal Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”). Specifically, the AIA, also known as the Farm Bill of 2018, established a legal definition of “hemp”: the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol [∆-9 THC] concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.

 

The Act amends the CSA to exclude “hemp” from the definition of “marihuana.” It also amended the CSA to exclude THC found in “hemp” from the “tetrahydrocannabinols” listed in Schedule I. Therefore, hemp-derived CBD products that contain less than less than 0.3% of 9∆-THC, such as those marketed by the Company, are not controlled substances under the CSA. These amendments to the CSA took immediate effect on December 20, 2018.

 

By way of background, the CSA establishes five “schedules” into which a substance with abuse potential may be classified. Substances that fall under any one of the five schedules are subject to various requirements and restrictions enforced by the

 

U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (“DEA”). The most restrictive is Schedule I, which is reserved for those substances having a high potential for abuse that do not have a currently accepted medical use, and that lack accepted safety for use under medical supervision.

 

Marijuana has long been classified under Schedule I. Previously, DEA took the position that CBD met the expansive definition of “marijuana”, which made it subject to Schedule I as well. Specifically, DEA created a code number in Schedule I for “marihuana extract,” defined as “an extract containing one or more cannabinoids that has been derived from any plant of the genus Cannabis, other than the separated resin (whether crude or purified) obtained from the plant.” DEA made clear that the agency considered CBD to fall within the definition of “x` extract” (and to therefore be a Schedule I substance) if the CBD came from the part of the cannabis plant that is included within the definition of “marijuana.”

 

The passage of the AIA confirms that hemp-derived CBD products are now excluded from the CSA. As noted above, the AIA amended the definition of “marihuana” as follows:

 

(A)            Subject to subparagraph (B), the term ‘marihuana’ means all parts of the plant Cannabis sativa L., whether growing or not; the seeds thereof; the resin extracted from any part of such plant; and every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such plant, its seeds to resin.

 

(B)The term ‘marihuana’ does not include—

 

(i)hemp, as defined in section 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946.

 

I.Limits of the AIA

 

Although the AIA removed “hemp” from the CSA, the Act has limitations.

 

28

 

  

a.Products containing more than 0.3% of 9∆-THC still subject to the CSA.

 

Notably, the AIA’s exclusion of “hemp” from the CSA definition of “marihuana” is limited to those parts, derivatives, or extracts of the plant containing less than 0.3% of 9∆-THC. Parts, derivatives, and extracts containing levels of 9∆-THC greater than 0.3% meet the definition of marihuana and are subject to the CSA. Consequently, manufacturers and distributors of CBD products must be prudent with respect to verifying the levels of 9∆-THC in products.

 

The passage of the AIA confirms that hemp-derived CBD products are now excluded from the CSA. As noted above, the AIA amended the definition of “marihuana” as follows:

 

(C)            Subject to subparagraph (B), the term ‘marihuana’ means all parts of the plant Cannabis sativa L., whether growing or not; the seeds thereof; the resin extracted from any part of such plant; and every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such plant, its seeds to resin.

 

(D)The term ‘marihuana’ does not include—

 

(i)hemp, as defined in section 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946.

 

II.Limits of the AIA

 

Although the AIA removed “hemp” from the CSA, the Act has limitations.

 

a.Products containing more than 0.3% of 9∆-THC still subject to the CSA.

 

Notably, the AIA’s exclusion of “hemp” from the CSA definition of “marihuana” is limited to those parts, derivatives, or extracts of the plant containing less than 0.3% of 9∆-THC. Parts, derivatives, and extracts containing levels of 9∆-THC greater than 0.3% meet the definition of marihuana and are subject to the CSA. Consequently, manufacturers and distributors of CBD products must be prudent with respect to verifying the levels of 9∆-THC in products.

 

b.Hemp production and cultivation restrictions

 

The AIA requires the establishment of a shared Federal-state program to regulate the cultivation and production of hemp. The USDA is actively engaged in rulemaking efforts to implement these requirements and state laws are evolving in response. Our Company is not involved in the cultivation or production of hemp; however, we recognize that new rules will impact the industry as a whole and we are closely monitoring the USDA’s rulemaking efforts.

 

c.Hemp-derived CBD remains subject to FDA regulatory authority

 

Further, The Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (“FDCA”) and the AIA authorize the FDA to regulate the marketing and distribution of hemp products in interstate commerce that are intended for consumption, including topical use. Pursuant to its jurisdiction, FDA may regulate hemp as a feed, food, dietary supplement, cosmetic or drug depending on the intended use of the hemp and whether the hemp is otherwise a permissible ingredient for a particular intended use. The AIA expressly preserves the FDA’s authority over “hemp” that is intended to be used as a drug, device, cosmetic, food (including animal food), dietary supplement, or tobacco product.

 

Generally, hemp-derived CBD products that are intended for ingestion and intended to support the normal function/structure of the body or added as an ingredient in food, may be considered a dietary supplement or conventional food under the FDCA. However, FDA has taken the position through advisory Warning Letters that CBD products are precluded from being marketed as dietary supplements or as food because CBD is subject to statutory exclusions designed to protect the integrity of the drug approval process.

 

29

 

 

Specifically, the statutory definition of a “dietary supplement” excludes an “article” that has been approved as a drug under section 505 of the FDCA. The term “dietary supplement” also excludes “an article” if (1) it has been authorized for investigation as a new drug; (2) substantial clinical investigations have been instituted on the article and their existence made public; and (3) it was not marketed as a food or dietary supplement prior to being authorized for investigation as a new drug. For purposes of this exclusion, the FDA has interpreted “authorized for investigation as a new drug” to mean that an Investigational New Drug application (“IND”) has been submitted for the active ingredient or active moiety.

 

FDA has taken the position that hemp-derived CBD cannot be marketed as dietary supplement because a CBD isolate has been approved as a drug, Epidiolex, and prior to approval, was subject to substantial clinical investigations under an IND. Further, FDA has stated that it has not been provided with the evidence needed to overcome this exclusion. The FDA asserts this same position with regard to products marketed as food under a separate, but identical, statutory provision applicable to “food” broadly. As such, FDA takes the position that hemp-derived CBD products intended for ingestion may be adulterated.

 

That being said, FDA has yet to take enforcement action against CBD products and has initiated a regulatory process to determine whether there is a regulatory pathway to permit the marketing of these products. Indeed, FDA in recognizing the significant increase in hemp-derived CBD products on the market, the Agency held a public meeting on May 31, 2019 requesting scientific information and data regarding the safety, manufacturing, product quality, marketing, labeling, and sale of products containing hemp-derived CBD. It further requested that comments be filed with the agency by July 2, 2019. This meeting and request for comments signaled FDA’s intent to consider various regulatory options for CBD products, including but not limited to (1) requiring companies to seek approval to market such product; (2) issuing regulations setting forth the conditions which such products may be marketed in food and dietary supplements; or (3) prohibiting the use of hemp-derived CBD in foods and dietary supplements. With that said, there is significant regulatory uncertainty around this category which makes it difficult to predict the likely outcome of this process FDA has initiated.

 

d.Hemp-derived CBD products are subject to regulation on the state level.

 

Although the AIA provided clarity regarding the status of hemp-derived CBD under the federal CSA, the AIA did not address the myriad of state laws and regulations governing such products. For example, hemp-derived CBD still meets the definition of a controlled substance under certain laws.

Keijiro Varela

 

Keijiro Varela, age 40, is a current board member of The Cannaisseur Group and has been the President of Nature Science Health Inc. (EvoCann) since it was founded in 2018. Valera earned  his undergraduate and graduate degree in 2003 and 2012 respectfully at Temple University (Philadelphia) in Engineering and Business Administration. From 2003 - 2014 he worked for Chevron Corporation as an engineer, Lean 6 Sigma operator and supply chain manager. After climbing the ranks and several global assignments within Chevron’s Products Division, Varela decided to make a dramatic change and follow in the footsteps of his idols Nikolai Tesla and George Washington Carver who both developed life changing technologies and dedicated their lives to improving humanity with their discoveries.

 

Combining Varela’s passion and drive to educate the masses on a healthier way of living and healing, in 2017 he decided to join the California based company Methodology Inc., that specializes in food as medicine. With a common mission to help people live a healthier lifestyle, Varela spent a year with the company to gain a stronger understanding of the nutritional impact of how clean food effects the body and living a healthier lifestyle yields a better quality of life. After struggling and surviving Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in his early 30’s, Varela was determined to help other’s that had chronic illnesses; a potential tragedy became a life calling.

 

In 2019 Varela, for personal reasons, decided to begin his own journey of cultivating ways to help the people closest to him that were struggling with their own health issues. Over the years of hearing people’s personal health struggles, Varela finally discovered his calling and made the leap to be fully committed to developing a holistic approach to treat various ailments that effect the mind and the internal body workings.

 

Through willing participants, years of research and with Varela’s Industrial Engineering & Chemistry background, he began creating an innovative Full Spectrum CBD product line that enhances the body’s cannabinoid receptors. CBD and other cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds that display potent anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. They can promote the body’s healthy regulation of the central nervous, immune, and endocannabinoid systems. Varela’s unique approach maximizes the delivery of medical cannabis oil through various innovative techniques combined with using the highest quality ingredients. Stemming from the food industry where the phrase “made with love” is used, Valera incorporates the phrase and mission is behind EvoCann’s products “made for the ones we love”.

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

 

Sales of Common Stock

 

We are offering for sale a maximum of 15,000,000 shares of our Common Stock in a self-underwritten offering directly to the public at a price of $0.23 per share. There is no minimum number of shares that we must sell in our direct offering, and therefore no minimum amount of proceeds will be raised. No arrangements have been made to place funds into escrow or any similar account. Upon receipt, offering proceeds will be deposited into our operating account and used to conduct our business and operations. We are offering the shares without any underwriting discounts or commissions. The purchase price is $0.23 per share. The Offering will terminate 12 months from the date that the Registration Statement relating to the Shares is declared effective, unless earlier fully subscribed or terminated by the Company. The offering may be extended.

 

In connection with the Company's selling efforts in the offering, the Company's officers and directors will not register as a broker-dealer pursuant to Section 15 of the Exchange Act, but rather will rely upon the "safe harbor" provisions of SEC Rule 3a4-1, promulgated under the Exchange Act. Generally speaking, Rule 3a4-1 provides an exemption from the broker-dealer registration requirements of the Exchange Act for persons associated with an issuer that participate in an offering of the issuer's securities. The Company's officers and directors are not subject to any statutory disqualification, as that term is defined in Section 3(a)(39) of the Exchange Act. Our officers and directors will not be compensated in connection with their participation in the offering by the payment of commissions or other remuneration based either directly or indirectly on transactions in our securities. Our officers and directors are not now, nor has he been within the past 12 months, a broker or dealer, and he has not been, within the past 12 months, an associated person of a broker or dealer. At the end of the offering, our officers and directors will continue to primarily perform substantial duties for the Company or on its behalf otherwise than in connection with transactions in securities. Our officers and directors will not participate in selling an offering of securities for any issuer more than once every 12 months other than in reliance on Exchange Act Rule 3a4-1(a)(4)(i) or (iii).

 

In order to comply with the applicable securities laws of certain states, the securities will be offered or sold in those states only if they have been registered or qualified for sale; exempted from such registration or if a qualification requirement is available and with which the Company has complied. In addition, and without limiting the foregoing, the Company will be subject to applicable provisions, rules and regulations under the Exchange Act with regard to security transactions during the period of time when this Registration Statement is effective.

 

36

 

 

Penny Stock Regulation

 

The SEC has adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in penny stocks. Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a price of less than $5.00 (other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange system).

 

The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC, that:

 

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

 

  · contains a description of the broker's or dealer's duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to a violation of such duties;

 

  · contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including "bid" and "ask" prices for penny stocks and the significance of the spread between the bid and ask price;

 

  · contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions;

 

  · defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading penny stocks; and

 

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

 

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

 

  · bid and offer quotations for the penny stock;

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written acknowledgment of the receipt of a risk disclosure statement and a signed and dated copy of a written suitability statement. These disclosure requirements will have the effect of reducing the trading activity in the secondary market for our stock because it will be subject to these penny stock rules. Therefore, stockholders may have difficulty selling those securities.

Section 15(G) of the Exchange Act

 

Our shares are covered by Section 15(g) of the Exchange Act and Rules 15g-1 through 15g-6 promulgated thereunder. They impose additional sales practice requirements on broker/dealers who sell our securities to persons other than established customers and accredited investors (generally institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouses).

 

Rule 15g-1 exempts a number of specific transactions from the scope of the penny stock rules.

Rule 15g-6 requires broker/dealers selling penny stocks to provide their customers with monthly account statements.

 

Rule 15g-9 requires broker/dealers to approve the transaction for the customer's account; obtain a written agreement from the customer setting forth the identity and quantity of the stock being purchased; obtain from the customer information regarding his investment experience; make a determination that the investment is suitable for the investor; deliver to the customer a written statement for the basis for the suitability determination; notify the customer of his or her rights and remedies in cases of fraud in penny stock transactions; and FINRA's toll free telephone number and the central number of the North American Administrators Association, for information on the disciplinary history of broker/dealers and their associated persons.

Selling Shareholders are offering 13,550,000 shares of common stock by this prospectus. The common stock may be sold or distributed from time to time by the Selling Shareholders directly to one or more purchasers or through brokers, dealers, or underwriters who may act solely as agents at market price prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to the prevailing market prices, at negotiated prices , or at fixed prices, which may be changed . The Selling Shareholders may use any one or more of the following methods when selling securities:

in other ways not involving market makers or established business markets,

including direct sales to purchasers or sales effected through agents;

  · any combination of the foregoing.

 

39

 

 

In order to comply with the securities laws of certain states, if applicable, the shares may be sold only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers. In addition, in certain states, the shares may not be sold unless they have been registered or qualified for sale in the state or an exemption from the state’s registration or qualification requirement is available and complied with.

 

Brokers, dealers, underwriters or agents participating in the distribution of the shares as agents may receive compensation in the form of commissions, discounts, or concessions from the Selling Security Holders and/or purchasers of the common stock for whom the broker-dealers may act as agent. The compensation paid to a particular broker-dealer may be less than or in excess of customary commissions. Neither we nor any Selling Shareholder can presently estimate the amount of compensation that any agent will receive.

 

We know of no existing arrangements between Selling Shareholders or any other stockholder, broker, dealer, underwriter or agent relating to the sale or distribution of the shares offered by this prospectus. At the time a particular offer of shares is made, a prospectus supplement, if required, will be distributed that will set forth the names of any agents, underwriters or dealers and any compensation from the Selling Security Holder, and any other required information.

 

We will pay the expenses incident to the registration, offering, and sale of the shares by Selling Shareholders.

 

We have advised Selling Shareholders that they are required to comply with Regulation M promulgated under the Exchange Act. With certain exceptions, Regulation M precludes selling stockholders, any affiliated purchasers, and any broker-dealer or other person who participates in the distribution from bidding for or purchasing or attempting to induce any person to bid for or purchase any security which is the subject of the distribution until the entire distribution is complete. Regulation M also prohibits any bids or purchases made in order to stabilize the price of a security in connection with the distribution of that security. All of the foregoing may affect the marketability of the securities offered by this prospectus.

 

This offering will terminate on the date that all shares offered by this prospectus have been sold by the Selling Security Holder or upon the termination of the Warrants.

 

The Selling Security Holders are “underwriters” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(11) of the Securities Act.

In such event, any commissions received by such broker-dealers or agents and any profit on the resale of the securities purchased by them may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act. The Selling Security Holder has informed us that it does not have any written or oral agreement or understanding, directly or indirectly, with any person to distribute the securities.

 

Because the Selling Security Holders are deemed to be “underwriters” within the meaning of the Securities Act, they will be subject to the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act, including Rule 172 thereunder. In addition, any securities covered by this prospectus which qualify for sale pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act may be sold under Rule 144 rather than under this prospectus. The Selling Security Holder has advised us that there is no underwriter or coordinating broker acting in connection with the proposed sale of the resale securities by the Selling Security Holder.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Six Months Ended June 30, 2022 and 2021

 

1. Organization and Basis of Presentation

 

Organization and Combination

 

The Cannaisseur Group, Inc. (the Company) was incorporated in the State of Delaware on December 22, 2020. 

 

On January 4, 2021, the Company acquired 51% of the common stock of Atlanta CBD, Inc. Atlanta CBD, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Georgia on October 17, 2018. 

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The Financial Statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and accounts are eliminated in consolidation.

 

Business Operations

 

The Company operates a retail CBD store in Atlanta, Georgia.

 

Going Concern

 

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 a cumulative net loss since inception of $200,745 working capital of $23,195 and has required additional capital raises to support its operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time. The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to create positive cash flows from operations and its ability to continue receiving capital from shareholders and other related parties and obtain financing from third parties. No assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in these efforts.

 

As a result, management has concluded that there is substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern within one year of the date that the accompanying financial statements are issued. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company's ability to raise additional funds and implement its business plan, and to ultimately achieve sustainable operating revenues and profitability. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

If cash resources are insufficient to satisfy the Company's ongoing cash requirements, the Company would be required to obtain funds, if available, although there can be no certainty, from its shareholders or officers.

 

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various assumptions that are believed to be reasonable in relation to the financial statements taken as a whole under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Management regularly evaluates the key factors and assumptions used to develop the estimates utilizing currently available information, changes in facts and circumstances, historical experience and reasonable assumptions. After such evaluations, if deemed appropriate, those estimates are adjusted accordingly. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates are expected to include those related to assumptions used in calculating accruals for potential liabilities, valuing equity instruments issued for services, and the realization of deferred tax assets.

 

F-7

 

 

Business Combinations

 

The Company accounts for all business combinations using the acquisition method of accounting, which allocates the fair value of the purchase consideration to the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values. The excess of the purchase consideration over the fair values of these identifiable assets and liabilities is recorded as goodwill. When determining the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, management makes significant estimates and assumptions. The Company may utilize third-party valuation specialists to assist the Company in the allocation. Initial purchase price allocations are subject to revision within the measurement period, not to exceed one year from the date of acquisition. Acquisition-related expenses and transaction costs associated with business combinations are expensed as incurred.

 

Cash

 

Cash and cash equivalents include short-term investments with original maturities of 90 days or less. The recorded value of our cash and cash equivalents approximates their fair value.

 

Inventory

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. The Company periodically reviews the value of items in inventory and provides write-downs or write-offs of inventory based on its assessment of market conditions. Write-downs and write-offs are charged to cost of goods sold. Inventory is based upon the average cost method of accounting.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. The Company calculates depreciation expense using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of their useful lives or the initial lease term. Expenditures for major renewals and improvements that extend the useful life of property and equipment are capitalized. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. The estimated useful lives of property and equipment are as follows:

 

Classification   Estimated Useful Lives
Equipment   3 to 5 years
Leasehold improvements   3 to 5 years
Furniture and fixtures   3 to 5 years

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with ASC Topic 606, Revenue From Contracts With Customers. ASC Topic 606 requires companies to recognize revenue in a manner that depicts the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. In addition, the standard requires disclosures of the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. The Company sells CBD related products in a retail location in Atlanta, Georgia and through e-commerce. Revenue is recognized based on the following model:

 

1. The Company sells products at their one retail location and via web site sales.  A sale agreement exists when the customer purchases the product at the counter or via an online purchase.  The price for and product to be received are known at time of purchase.

2. The performance obligations are to provide the product for the customer at the counter or ship the product to the customer. Product is shipped on the day of sale.

3. The price of the product is located on the label or presented on the web site and therefore is known at the time of purchase.

4. The price of the product is properly allocated to the sole performance of providing the product.

5. Revenue is recognized in the retail location at the point of sale where money is collected and product is in control of customer and from the web site upon settlement of the credit card transaction, which is effectively at the time of purchase.

 

Concentration of Risk

 

The Company may periodically contract with consultants and vendors to provide services related to the Company's business development activities. Agreements for these services may be for a specific time period or for a specific project or task. The Company did not have any agreements at December 31, 2021 or 2020.

 

F-8

 

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under an asset and liability approach for financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Accordingly, the Company recognizes deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected impact of differences between the financial statements and the tax basis of assets and liabilities.

 

The Company records a valuation allowance to reduce its deferred tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized. In the event the Company was to determine that it would be able to realize its deferred tax assets in the future in excess of its recorded amount, an adjustment to the deferred tax assets would be credited to operations in the period such determination was made. Alternatively, should the Company determine that it would not be able to realize all or part of its deferred tax assets in the future, an adjustment to the deferred tax assets would be charged to operations in the period such determination was made.

 

The Company is subject to U.S. federal income taxes and income taxes of the State of Georgia.

 

As the Company's net operating losses in the respective jurisdictions in which it operates have yet to be utilized, all previous tax years remain open to examination by the taxing authorities in which the Company currently operates. The Company had no unrecognized tax benefits as of December 31, 2021 and 2020 and does not anticipate any material amount of unrecognized tax benefits within the next 12 months.

 

The Company accounts for uncertainties in income tax law under a comprehensive model for the financial statement recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken in income tax returns as prescribed by GAAP. The tax effects of a position are recognized only if it is "more-likely-than-not" to be sustained by the taxing authority as of the reporting date. If the tax position is not considered "more-likely-than-not" to be sustained, then no benefits of the position are recognized. As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had not recorded any liability for uncertain tax positions. In subsequent periods, any interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions will be recognized as a component of income tax expense.

 

The Tax Reform Act of 1986 limits the annual utilization of net operating loss and tax credit carry forwards, following an ownership change of the Company. Note that as a result of the Company's equity financings in recent years, the Company underwent changes in ownership for purposes of the Tax Reform Act. Pursuant to Sections 382 and 383 of the Internal Revenue Code, annual use of any of the Company's net operating loss carry forwards may be limited if cumulative changes in ownership of more than 50% occur during any three-year period.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company reviews the carrying value of its long-lived assets annually or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the historical cost-carrying value of an asset should no longer be appropriate. The Company assesses recoverability of the carrying value of the asset by estimating the future net undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the asset, including eventual disposition. If the future net undiscounted cash flows are less than the carrying value of the asset, an impairment loss is recorded equal to the difference between the asset’s carrying value and estimated fair value.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company issues common stock and intends to issue stock options to officers, directors and consultants for services rendered. Options will vest and expire according to terms established at the issuance date of each grant. Stock grants, which are generally time vested, will be measured at the grant date fair value and charged to operations ratably over the vesting period.

 

The fair value of stock options granted as stock-based compensation will be determined utilizing the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, and can be affected by several variables, the most significant of which are the life of the equity award, the exercise price of the stock option as compared to the fair market value of the common stock on the grant date, and the estimated volatility of the common stock. Estimated volatility will be based on the historical volatility of the Company's common stock over an appropriate calculation period, or, if not available, by reference to the volatility of a representative sample of comparable public companies.  The risk-free interest rate will be based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. The fair market value of the common stock will be determined by reference to the quoted market price of the Company's common stock on the grant date, or, if not available, by reference to an appropriate alternative valuation methodology.

 

The Company will recognize the fair value of stock-based compensation awards in general and administrative costs or in software development costs, as appropriate, in the Company's consolidated statements of operations. The Company will issue new shares of common stock to satisfy stock option exercises.

 

As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company did not have any outstanding stock options.

 

F-9

 

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

The Company's computation of earnings (loss) per share ("EPS") includes basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is measured as the income (loss) attributable to common stockholders divided by the weighted average common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is similar to basic EPS but presents the dilutive effect on a per share basis of potential common shares (e.g., convertible notes payable, convertible preferred stock, warrants and stock options) as if they had been converted at the beginning of the periods presented, or issuance date, if later. Potential common shares that have an anti-dilutive effect (i.e., those that increase income per share or decrease loss per share) are excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS.

 

Loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the respective periods. Basic and diluted loss per common share is the same for all periods presented because there is no convertible debt, convertible preferred stock, warrants or stock options outstanding.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The authoritative guidance with respect to fair value established a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three levels and requires that assets and liabilities carried at fair value be classified and disclosed in one of three categories, as presented below.  Disclosure as to transfers in and out of Levels 1 and 2, and activity in Level 3 fair value measurements, is also required.

 

Level 1. Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for an identical asset or liability that the Company has the ability to access as of the measurement date. Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 1 inputs include active-exchange traded securities and exchange-based derivatives.

 

Level 2. Inputs, other than quoted prices included within Level 1, which are directly observable for the asset or liability or indirectly observable through corroboration with observable market data.  Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 2 inputs include fixed income securities, non-exchange-based derivatives, mutual funds, and fair-value hedges.

 

Level 3. Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data for the asset or liability which requires the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.  Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 3 inputs include infrequently-traded non-exchange-based derivatives and commingled investment funds and are measured using present value pricing models.

 

The Company will determine the level in the fair value hierarchy within which each fair value measurement falls in its entirety, based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. In determining the appropriate levels, the Company will perform an analysis of the assets and liabilities at each reporting period end.

 

The carrying value of financial instruments (consisting of cash and accounts payable and accrued expenses) is considered to be representative of their respective fair values due to the short-term nature of those instruments.

 

Leases

 

Effective January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) ("ASU 2016-02"), which requires a lessee to record a right-of-use asset and a corresponding lease liability at the inception of the lease initially measured at the present value of the lease payments.  ASU 2016-02 requires recognition in the statement of operations of a single lease cost that is calculated as a total cost of the lease allocated over the lease term, generally on a straight-line basis.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments ("ASU 2016-13"). ASU 2016-13 significantly changes how entities measure credit losses for most financial assets, including accounts and notes receivables. ASU 2016-13 will replace the current "incurred loss" approach with an "expected loss" model, under which companies will recognize allowances based on expected rather than incurred losses. Entities will apply the provisions of ASU 2016-13 as a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which ASU 2016-13 is effective. As small business filer, ASU 2016-13 will be effective for the Company for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2022. Management is currently in the process of assessing the impact of adopting ASU-2016-13 on the Company's financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt — Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity (“ASU 2020-06). ASU 2020-06 simplifies the accounting for convertible debt by eliminating the beneficial conversion and cash conversion accounting models. Upon adoption of ASU 2020-06, convertible debt proceeds, unless issued with a substantial premium or an embedded conversion feature that is not clearly and closely related to the host contract, will no longer be allocated between debt and equity components. This modification will reduce the issue discount and result in less non-cash interest expense in financial statements. ASU 2020-06 also updates the earnings per share calculation and requires entities to assume share settlement when the convertible debt can be settled in cash or shares. ASU 2020-06 will be effective January 1, 2024, and a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings is required upon adoption. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than January 1, 2021, including interim periods within that year. The Company adopted ASU 2020-06 effective January 1, 2021. The adoption of ASU 2020-06 did not have any impact on the Company’s financial statement presentation or disclosures.

4. Long-Term Operating Lease

 

The Company leases its retail store in Atlanta, Georgia under a five-year lease executed on January 24, 2019. The Company did not have any other leases with initial terms of 12 months or more at December 31, 2021 or 2020.

 

Operating lease right-of-use assets and liabilities are recognized at the commencement date of the lease based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Right-of-use assets represent the Company's right to use an underlying asset for the lease term, and right-of-use lease liabilities represent the Company's obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Generally, the implicit rate of interest, equivalent to a discount rate, in lease arrangements is not readily determinable and the prevailing commercial property mortgage rate is utilized in determining the present value of lease payments.

 

The monthly cash payment for this operating lease is approximately $1,650 per month, and the lease term ends on December 24, 2023. The Company recorded right-of-use assets and liabilities of $84,994 on January 24, 2019, based on the present value of payments and an incremental borrowing rate of 10.0% per annum.

 

The following schedule sets forth the operating lease right of use activity for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021:

 

    2022     2021  
Capitalized present value of lease payments   $ 84,994     $ 84,994  
Less amortization     (55,674 )     (37,815 )
Operating lease right of use asset, net   $ 29,320     $ 47,179  

 

The following schedule sets forth the current portion and long-term portion of operating lease liabilities as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021: 

       
    June 30,
2022
    December 31,
2021

10. Commitments and Contingencies

 

Legal Contingencies

 

The Company has no known commitments and contingencies.

 

Impact of COVID-19 on the Company

 

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has led to severe disruptions in general economic activities, as businesses and governments have taken broad actions to mitigate this public health crisis. Although the Company has not experienced any significant disruption to its business to date, these conditions could significantly negatively impact the Company's business in the future.

 

The extent to which the COVID-19 outbreak ultimately impacts the Company's business, future revenues, results of operations and financial condition will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including, but not limited to, the duration and spread of the outbreak, its severity and longevity, the actions to curtail the virus and treat its impact (including an effective vaccine), and how quickly and to what extent normal economic and operating conditions can resume. Even after the COVID-19 outbreak has subsided, the Company may be at risk of experiencing a significant impact to its business as a result of the global economic impact, including any economic downturn or recession that has occurred or may occur in the future.

 

Currently, capital markets have been disrupted by the crisis, as a result of which the availability, amount and type of financing available to the Company in the near future is uncertain and cannot be assured and is largely dependent upon evolving market conditions and other factors.

 

The Company intends to continue to monitor the situation and may adjust its current business plans as more information and guidance become available.

 

11. Subsequent Events

 

In August 2022, the Company sold 580,000 shares of its common stock at a price of $0.005 per share for gross proceeds of $2,900.

 

In August 2022, the Company borrowed $2,000 from an unrelated third party. The loan is due upon demand and bears interest at 10%.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

  

To the Board of Directors and
Stockholders of The Cannaisseur Group, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of The Cannaisseur Group, Inc. (the Company) as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, and the related statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2021 and 2020 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company suffered a net loss from operations and had negative cash flows from operations, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans regarding those matters are also described in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

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

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

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

 

Critical Audit Matters

 

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

 

F-15

 

  

As discussed in Note 1, the Company has a going concern due to net loss during the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020.

 

Auditing management’s evaluation of a going concern can be a significant judgement given the fact that the Company uses management estimates on future revenue and expenses, which are difficult to substantiate.

 

To evaluate the appropriateness of the going concern, we examined and evaluated the financial information along with management’s plans to mitigate the going concern and management’s disclosure on going concern.

THE CANNAISSEUR GROUP, INC.

 

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Year Ended December 31, 2020, and 2021

 

1. Organization and Basis of Presentation

 

Organization and Combination

 

The Cannaisseur Group, Inc. (the Company) was incorporated in the State of Delaware on December 22, 2020. 

 

On January 4, 2021, the Company acquired 51% of the common stock of Atlanta CBD, Inc. Atlanta CBD, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Georgia on October 17, 2018. 

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The Financial Statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and accounts are eliminated in consolidation.

 

Business Operations

 

The Company operates a retail CBD store in Atlanta, Georgia.

 

Going Concern

 

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 a cumulative net loss since inception of $190,689, working capital of $16,834 and has required additional capital raises to support its operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time. The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to create positive cash flows from operations and its ability to continue receiving capital from shareholders and other related parties and obtain financing from third parties. No assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in these efforts.

 

As a result, management has concluded that there is substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern within one year of the date that the accompanying financial statements are issued. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company's ability to raise additional funds and implement its business plan, and to ultimately achieve sustainable operating revenues and profitability. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

If cash resources are insufficient to satisfy the Company's ongoing cash requirements, the Company would be required to obtain funds, if available, although there can be no certainty, from its shareholders or officers.

 

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various assumptions that are believed to be reasonable in relation to the financial statements taken as a whole under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Management regularly evaluates the key factors and assumptions used to develop the estimates utilizing currently available information, changes in facts and circumstances, historical experience and reasonable assumptions. After such evaluations, if deemed appropriate, those estimates are adjusted accordingly. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates are expected to include those related to assumptions used in calculating accruals for potential liabilities, valuing equity instruments issued for services, and the realization of deferred tax assets.

  

F-21

 

 

Business Combinations

 

The Company accounts for all business combinations using the acquisition method of accounting, which allocates the fair value of the purchase consideration to the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values. The excess of the purchase consideration over the fair values of these identifiable assets and liabilities is recorded as goodwill. When determining the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, management makes significant estimates and assumptions. The Company may utilize third-party valuation specialists to assist the Company in the allocation. Initial purchase price allocations are subject to revision within the measurement period, not to exceed one year from the date of acquisition. Acquisition-related expenses and transaction costs associated with business combinations are expensed as incurred.

 

Cash

 

Cash and cash equivalents include short-term investments with original maturities of 90 days or less. The recorded value of our cash and cash equivalents approximates their fair value.

 

Inventory

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. The Company periodically reviews the value of items in inventory and provides write-downs or write-offs of inventory based on its assessment of market conditions. Write-downs and write-offs are charged to cost of goods sold. Inventory is based upon the average cost method of accounting.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. The Company calculates depreciation expense using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of their useful lives or the initial lease term. Expenditures for major renewals and improvements that extend the useful life of property and equipment are capitalized. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. The estimated useful lives of property and equipment are as follows:

 

Classification   Estimated Useful Lives
Equipment   3 to 5 years
Leasehold improvements   3 to 5 years
Furniture and fixtures   3 to 5 years

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with ASC Topic 606, Revenue From Contracts With Customers. ASC Topic 606 requires companies to recognize revenue in a manner that depicts the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. In addition, the standard requires disclosures of the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. The Company sells CBD related products in a retail location in Atlanta, Georgia and through e-commerce. Revenue is recognized based on the following model:

 

1. The Company sells products at their one retail location and via web site sales.  A sale agreement exists when the customer purchases the product at the counter or via an online purchase.  The price for and product to be received are known at time of purchase.

 

2. The performance obligations are to provide the product for the customer at the counter or ship the product to the customer. Product is shipped on the day of sale.

  

3. The price of the product is located on the label or presented on the web site and therefore is known at the time of purchase.

 

4. The price of the product is properly allocated to the sole performance of providing the product.

 

5. Revenue is recognized in the retail location at the point of sale where money is collected and product is in control of customer and from the web site upon settlement of the credit card transaction, which is effectively at the time of purchase.

 

F-22

 

 

Concentration of Risk

 

The Company may periodically contract with consultants and vendors to provide services related to the Company's business development activities. Agreements for these services may be for a specific time period or for a specific project or task. The Company did not have any agreements at December 31, 2021 or 2020.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under an asset and liability approach for financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Accordingly, the Company recognizes deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected impact of differences between the financial statements and the tax basis of assets and liabilities.

 

The Company records a valuation allowance to reduce its deferred tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized. In the event the Company was to determine that it would be able to realize its deferred tax assets in the future in excess of its recorded amount, an adjustment to the deferred tax assets would be credited to operations in the period such determination was made. Alternatively, should the Company determine that it would not be able to realize all or part of its deferred tax assets in the future, an adjustment to the deferred tax assets would be charged to operations in the period such determination was made.

 

The Company is subject to U.S. federal income taxes and income taxes of the State of Georgia.

 

As the Company's net operating losses in the respective jurisdictions in which it operates have yet to be utilized, all previous tax years remain open to examination by the taxing authorities in which the Company currently operates. The Company had no unrecognized tax benefits as of December 31, 2021 and 2020 and does not anticipate any material amount of unrecognized tax benefits within the next 12 months.

 

The Company accounts for uncertainties in income tax law under a comprehensive model for the financial statement recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken in income tax returns as prescribed by GAAP. The tax effects of a position are recognized only if it is "more-likely-than-not" to be sustained by the taxing authority as of the reporting date. If the tax position is not considered "more-likely-than-not" to be sustained, then no benefits of the position are recognized. As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had not recorded any liability for uncertain tax positions. In subsequent periods, any interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions will be recognized as a component of income tax expense.

 

The Tax Reform Act of 1986 limits the annual utilization of net operating loss and tax credit carry forwards, following an ownership change of the Company. Note that as a result of the Company's equity financings in recent years, the Company underwent changes in ownership for purposes of the Tax Reform Act. Pursuant to Sections 382 and 383 of the Internal Revenue Code, annual use of any of the Company's net operating loss carry forwards may be limited if cumulative changes in ownership of more than 50% occur during any three-year period.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company reviews the carrying value of its long-lived assets annually or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the historical cost-carrying value of an asset should no longer be appropriate. The Company assesses recoverability of the carrying value of the asset by estimating the future net undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the asset, including eventual disposition. If the future net undiscounted cash flows are less than the carrying value of the asset, an impairment loss is recorded equal to the difference between the asset’s carrying value and estimated fair value.

 

F-23

 

  

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company issues common stock and intends to issue stock options to officers, directors and consultants for services rendered. Options will vest and expire according to terms established at the issuance date of each grant. Stock grants, which are generally time vested, will be measured at the grant date fair value and charged to operations ratably over the vesting period.

 

The fair value of stock options granted as stock-based compensation will be determined utilizing the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, and can be affected by several variables, the most significant of which are the life of the equity award, the exercise price of the stock option as compared to the fair market value of the common stock on the grant date, and the estimated volatility of the common stock. Estimated volatility will be based on the historical volatility of the Company's common stock over an appropriate calculation period, or, if not available, by reference to the volatility of a representative sample of comparable public companies.  The risk-free interest rate will be based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. The fair market value of the common stock will be determined by reference to the quoted market price of the Company's common stock on the grant date, or, if not available, by reference to an appropriate alternative valuation methodology.

 

The Company will recognize the fair value of stock-based compensation awards in general and administrative costs or in software development costs, as appropriate, in the Company's consolidated statements of operations. The Company will issue new shares of common stock to satisfy stock option exercises.

 

As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company did not have any outstanding stock options.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

The Company's computation of earnings (loss) per share ("EPS") includes basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is measured as the income (loss) attributable to common stockholders divided by the weighted average common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is similar to basic EPS but presents the dilutive effect on a per share basis of potential common shares (e.g., convertible notes payable, convertible preferred stock, warrants and stock options) as if they had been converted at the beginning of the periods presented, or issuance date, if later. Potential common shares that have an anti-dilutive effect (i.e., those that increase income per share or decrease loss per share) are excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS.

 

Loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the respective periods. Basic and diluted loss per common share is the same for all periods presented because there is no convertible debt, convertible preferred stock, warrants or stock options outstanding.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The authoritative guidance with respect to fair value established a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three levels and requires that assets and liabilities carried at fair value be classified and disclosed in one of three categories, as presented below.  Disclosure as to transfers in and out of Levels 1 and 2, and activity in Level 3 fair value measurements, is also required.

 

Level 1. Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for an identical asset or liability that the Company has the ability to access as of the measurement date. Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 1 inputs include active-exchange traded securities and exchange-based derivatives.

 

Level 2. Inputs, other than quoted prices included within Level 1, which are directly observable for the asset or liability or indirectly observable through corroboration with observable market data.  Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 2 inputs include fixed income securities, non-exchange-based derivatives, mutual funds, and fair-value hedges.

 

Level 3. Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data for the asset or liability which requires the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.  Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 3 inputs include infrequently-traded non-exchange-based derivatives and commingled investment funds and are measured using present value pricing models.

 

The Company will determine the level in the fair value hierarchy within which each fair value measurement falls in its entirety, based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. In determining the appropriate levels, the Company will perform an analysis of the assets and liabilities at each reporting period end.

 

F-24

 

    

The carrying value of financial instruments (consisting of cash and accounts payable and accrued expenses) is considered to be representative of their respective fair values due to the short-term nature of those instruments.

 

Leases

 

Effective January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) ("ASU 2016-02"), which requires a lessee to record a right-of-use asset and a corresponding lease liability at the inception of the lease initially measured at the present value of the lease payments.  ASU 2016-02 requires recognition in the statement of operations of a single lease cost that is calculated as a total cost of the lease allocated over the lease term, generally on a straight-line basis.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments ("ASU 2016-13"). ASU 2016-13 significantly changes how entities measure credit losses for most financial assets, including accounts and notes receivables. ASU 2016-13 will replace the current "incurred loss" approach with an "expected loss" model, under which companies will recognize allowances based on expected rather than incurred losses. Entities will apply the provisions of ASU 2016-13 as a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which ASU 2016-13 is effective. As small business filer, ASU 2016-13 will be effective for the Company for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2022. Management is currently in the process of assessing the impact of adopting ASU-2016-13 on the Company's financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt — Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity (“ASU 2020-06). ASU 2020-06 simplifies the accounting for convertible debt by eliminating the beneficial conversion and cash conversion accounting models. Upon adoption of ASU 2020-06, convertible debt proceeds, unless issued with a substantial premium or an embedded conversion feature that is not clearly and closely related to the host contract, will no longer be allocated between debt and equity components. This modification will reduce the issue discount and result in less non-cash interest expense in financial statements. ASU 2020-06 also updates the earnings per share calculation and requires entities to assume share settlement when the convertible debt can be settled in cash or shares. ASU 2020-06 will be effective January 1, 2024, and a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings is required upon adoption. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than January 1, 2021, including interim periods within that year. The Company adopted ASU 2020-06 effective January 1, 2021. The adoption of ASU 2020-06 did not have any impact on the Company’s financial statement presentation or disclosures.

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB, including its Emerging Issues Task Force, and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, did not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company's present or future financial statements and related disclosures.

4. Long-Term Operating Lease

 

The Company leases its retail store in Atlanta, Georgia under a five-year lease executed on January 24, 2019. The Company did not have any other leases with initial terms of 12 months or more at December 31, 2021 or 2020.

 

Operating lease right-of-use assets and liabilities are recognized at the commencement date of the lease based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Right-of-use assets represent the Company's right to use an underlying asset for the lease term, and right-of-use lease liabilities represent the Company's obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Generally, the implicit rate of interest, equivalent to a discount rate, in lease arrangements is not readily determinable and the prevailing commercial property mortgage rate is utilized in determining the present value of lease payments.

 

The monthly cash payment for this operating lease is approximately $1,650 per month, and the lease term ends on December 24, 2023. The Company recorded right-of-use assets and liabilities of $84,994 on January 24, 2019, based on the present value of payments and an incremental borrowing rate of 10.0% per annum.

 

The following schedule sets forth the operating lease right of use activity for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020:

 

    2021     2020

10. Income Taxes

 

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes. Significant components of the Company's deferred tax assets as of December 31, 2021 and 2020 are summarized below.

 

    December 31,
2021
    December 31,
2020
 
Net operating loss carryforwards   $ 191,000     $ 37,000  
      191,000       37,000  
Valuation allowance     (191,000 )     (37,000 )
Net deferred tax assets   $     $  

 

In assessing the potential realization of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the Company attaining future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible. As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, management was unable to determine if it is more likely than not that the Company's deferred tax assets will be realized and has therefore recorded an appropriate valuation allowance against deferred tax assets at such dates.

No U.S. federal tax provision has been provided for the Company for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 due to the losses incurred during the periods.

 

The reconciliation below presents the difference between the income tax rate computed by applying the U.S. federal statutory rate and the effective tax rate for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020.

 

    December 31,

At December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company has available net operating loss carryforwards for U.S. federal corporate income tax purposes of approximately $191,000 and $37,000. U.S. federal net operating losses, if not utilized earlier, expire through 2039.

 

11. Commitments and Contingencies

 

Legal Contingencies

 

The Company has no known commitments and contingencies.

 

Impact of COVID-19 on the Company

 

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has led to severe disruptions in general economic activities, as businesses and governments have taken broad actions to mitigate this public health crisis. Although the Company has not experienced any significant disruption to its business to date, these conditions could significantly negatively impact the Company's business in the future.

 

The extent to which the COVID-19 outbreak ultimately impacts the Company's business, future revenues, results of operations and financial condition will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including, but not limited to, the duration and spread of the outbreak, its severity and longevity, the actions to curtail the virus and treat its impact (including an effective vaccine), and how quickly and to what extent normal economic and operating conditions can resume. Even after the COVID-19 outbreak has subsided, the Company may be at risk of experiencing a significant impact to its business as a result of the global economic impact, including any economic downturn or recession that has occurred or may occur in the future.

 

Currently, capital markets have been disrupted by the crisis, as a result of which the availability, amount and type of financing available to the Company in the near future is uncertain and cannot be assured and is largely dependent upon evolving market conditions and other factors.

 

The Company intends to continue to monitor the situation and may adjust its current business plans as more information and guidance become available.

 

12. Subsequent Events

 

The Company has evaluated subsequent events through the date of this report, and determined that there have been no events that have occurred that would require adjustments to our disclosures in the consolidated financial statements.

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2020 and 2019

 

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and

Shareholders of Atlanta CBD, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Atlanta CBD, Inc. (the Company) as of December 31, 2020, and 2019, and the related statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2020 and the related notes (collectively referred to as the financial statements). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2020 and 2019 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2020 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company suffered a net loss from operations and had negative cash flows from operations, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans regarding those matters are also described in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

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

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

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

 

Critical Audit Matters

 

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

 

Due to the net loss for the year, the Company evaluated the need for a going concern.

 

Auditing management’s evaluation of a going concern can be a significant judgement given the fact that the Company uses management estimates on future revenues and expenses which are not able to be substantiated.

 

As discussed in Note 1, the Company has a going concern due to net loss during the year as well as having negative cash flows from operations during the year ended December 31, 2020.

 

Auditing management’s evaluation of a going concern can be a significant judgement given the fact that the Company uses management estimates on future revenue and expenses, which are difficult to substantiate.

 

To evaluate the appropriateness of the going concern, we examined and evaluated the financial information along with management’s plans to mitigate the going concern and management’s disclosure on going concern.

ATLANTA CBD, INC.

 

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Years Ended December 31, 2020 and 2019

 

1. Organization and Basis of Presentation

 

Organization and Combination

 

Atlanta CBD, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Georgia on October 17, 2018. 

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The Financial Statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

 

Business Operations

 

The Company operates a retail CBD store in Atlanta, Georgia.

 

Going Concern

 

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 a cumulative net loss since inception of $91,523, working capital of $4,045 and has required additional capital raises to support its operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time. The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to create positive cash flows from operations and its ability to continue receiving capital from shareholders and other related parties and obtain financing from third parties. No assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in these efforts.

 

As a result, management has concluded that there is substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern within one year of the date that the accompanying financial statements are issued. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company's ability to raise additional funds and implement its business plan, and to ultimately achieve sustainable operating revenues and profitability. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

If cash resources are insufficient to satisfy the Company's ongoing cash requirements, the Company would be required to obtain funds, if available, although there can be no certainty, from its shareholders or officers.

 

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various assumptions that are believed to be reasonable in relation to the financial statements taken as a whole under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Management regularly evaluates the key factors and assumptions used to develop the estimates utilizing currently available information, changes in facts and circumstances, historical experience and reasonable assumptions. After such evaluations, if deemed appropriate, those estimates are adjusted accordingly. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates are expected to include those related to assumptions used in calculating accruals for potential liabilities, valuing equity instruments issued for services, and the realization of deferred tax assets.

 

F-36

 

 

Cash

 

Cash and cash equivalents include short-term investments with original maturities of 90 days or less. The recorded value of our cash and cash equivalents approximates their fair value.

 

Inventory

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. The Company periodically reviews the value of items in inventory and provides write-downs or write-offs of inventory based on its assessment of market conditions. Write-downs and write-offs are charged to cost of goods sold. Inventory is based upon the average cost method of accounting.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. The Company calculates depreciation expense using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of their useful lives or the initial lease term. Expenditures for major renewals and improvements that extend the useful life of property and equipment are capitalized. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. The estimated useful lives of property and equipment are as follows:

 

Classification   Estimated Useful Lives
Equipment   3 to 5 years
Leasehold improvements   3 to 5 years
Furniture and fixtures   3 to 5 years

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with ASC Topic 606, Revenue From Contracts With Customers. ASC Topic 606 requires companies to recognize revenue in a manner that depicts the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. In addition, the standard requires disclosures of the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. Revenue is recognized based on the following model:

 

1. The Company sells products at their one retail location.  A sale agreement exists when the customer purchases the product at the counter.  The price for and product to be received are known at time of purchase.
2. The sole performance obligation is to provide the product for the customer.
3. The price of the product is located on the label and therefore known at the time of purchase.
4. The price of the product is properly allocated to the sole performance of providing the product.
5. Revenue is recognized at point of sales where money is collected and product is in control of customer.

 

Concentration of Risk

 

The Company may periodically contract with consultants and vendors to provide services related to the Company's business development activities. Agreements for these services may be for a specific time period or for a specific project or task. The Company did not have any agreements at December 31, 2020 or December 31, 2019.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under an asset and liability approach for financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Accordingly, the Company recognizes deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected impact of differences between the financial statements and the tax basis of assets and liabilities.

 

F-37

 

 

The Company records a valuation allowance to reduce its deferred tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized. In the event the Company was to determine that it would be able to realize its deferred tax assets in the future in excess of its recorded amount, an adjustment to the deferred tax assets would be credited to operations in the period such determination was made. Alternatively, should the Company determine that it would not be able to realize all or part of its deferred tax assets in the future, an adjustment to the deferred tax assets would be charged to operations in the period such determination was made.

 

The Company is subject to U.S. federal income taxes and income taxes of the State of Georgia.

 

As the Company's net operating losses in the respective jurisdictions in which it operates have yet to be utilized, all previous tax years remain open to examination by the taxing authorities in which the Company currently operates. The Company had no unrecognized tax benefits as of December 31, 2020 and 2019 and does not anticipate any material amount of unrecognized tax benefits within the next 12 months.

 

The Company accounts for uncertainties in income tax law under a comprehensive model for the financial statement recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken in income tax returns as prescribed by GAAP. The tax effects of a position are recognized only if it is "more-likely-than-not" to be sustained by the taxing authority as of the reporting date. If the tax position is not considered "more-likely-than-not" to be sustained, then no benefits of the position are recognized. As of December 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company had not recorded any liability for uncertain tax positions. In subsequent periods, any interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions will be recognized as a component of income tax expense.

 

The Company has income tax NOL carryforwards of approximately $91,500, which arose as follows:

 

2018   $ 1,200  
2019     44,500  
2020     45,900  
Total   $ 91,500  

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company issues common stock and intends to issue stock options to officers, directors and consultants for services rendered. Options will vest and expire according to terms established at the issuance date of each grant. Stock grants, which are generally time vested, will be measured at the grant date fair value and charged to operations ratably over the vesting period.

 

The fair value of stock options granted as stock-based compensation will be determined utilizing the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, and can be affected by several variables, the most significant of which are the life of the equity award, the exercise price of the stock option as compared to the fair market value of the common stock on the grant date, and the estimated volatility of the common stock. Estimated volatility will be based on the historical volatility of the Company's common stock over an appropriate calculation period, or, if not available, by reference to the volatility of a representative sample of comparable public companies.  The risk-free interest rate will be based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. The fair market value of the common stock will be determined by reference to the quoted market price of the Company's common stock on the grant date, or, if not available, by reference to an appropriate alternative valuation methodology.

 

The Company will recognize the fair value of stock-based compensation awards in general and administrative costs or in software development costs, as appropriate, in the Company's consolidated statements of operations. The Company will issue new shares of common stock to satisfy stock option exercises.

 

As of December 31, 2020, the Company did not have any outstanding stock options.

 

F-38

 

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

The Company's computation of earnings (loss) per share ("EPS") includes basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is measured as the income (loss) attributable to common stockholders divided by the weighted average common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is similar to basic EPS but presents the dilutive effect on a per share basis of potential common shares (e.g., convertible notes payable, convertible preferred stock, warrants and stock options) as if they had been converted at the beginning of the periods presented, or issuance date, if later. Potential common shares that have an anti-dilutive effect (i.e., those that increase income per share or decrease loss per share) are excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS.

 

Loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the respective periods. Basic and diluted loss per common share is the same for all periods presented because there is no convertible debt, convertible preferred stock, warrants or stock options outstanding.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The authoritative guidance with respect to fair value established a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three levels and requires that assets and liabilities carried at fair value be classified and disclosed in one of three categories, as presented below.  Disclosure as to transfers in and out of Levels 1 and 2, and activity in Level 3 fair value measurements, is also required.

 

Level 1. Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for an identical asset or liability that the Company has the ability to access as of the measurement date. Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 1 inputs include active-exchange traded securities and exchange-based derivatives.

 

Level 2. Inputs, other than quoted prices included within Level 1, which are directly observable for the asset or liability or indirectly observable through corroboration with observable market data.  Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 2 inputs include fixed income securities, non-exchange-based derivatives, mutual funds, and fair-value hedges.

 

Level 3. Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data for the asset or liability which requires the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.  Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 3 inputs include infrequently-traded non-exchange-based derivatives and commingled investment funds and are measured using present value pricing models.

 

The Company will determine the level in the fair value hierarchy within which each fair value measurement falls in its entirety, based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. In determining the appropriate levels, the Company will perform an analysis of the assets and liabilities at each reporting period end.

 

The carrying value of financial instruments (consisting of cash and accounts payable and accrued expenses) is considered to be representative of their respective fair values due to the short-term nature of those instruments.

 

Leases

 

Effective January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) ("ASU 2016-02"), which requires a lessee to record a right-of-use asset and a corresponding lease liability at the inception of the lease initially measured at the present value of the lease payments.  ASU 2016-02 requires recognition in the statement of operations of a single lease cost that is calculated as a total cost of the lease allocated over the lease term, generally on a straight-line basis.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments ("ASU 2016-13"). ASU 2016-13 significantly changes how entities measure credit losses for most financial assets, including accounts and notes receivables. ASU 2016-13 will replace the current "incurred loss" approach with an "expected loss" model, under which companies will recognize allowances based on expected rather than incurred losses. Entities will apply the provisions of ASU 2016-13 as a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which ASU 2016-13 is effective. As small business filer, ASU 2016-13 will be effective for the Company for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2022. Management is currently in the process of assessing the impact of adopting ASU-2016-13 on the Company's financial statements and related disclosures.

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt — Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity (“ASU 2020-06). ASU 2020-06 simplifies the accounting for convertible debt by eliminating the beneficial conversion and cash conversion accounting models. Upon adoption of ASU 2020-06, convertible debt proceeds, unless issued with a substantial premium or an embedded conversion feature that is not clearly and closely related to the host contract, will no longer be allocated between debt and equity components. This modification will reduce the issue discount and result in less non-cash interest expense in financial statements. ASU 2020-06 also updates the earnings per share calculation and requires entities to assume share settlement when the convertible debt can be settled in cash or shares. ASU 2020-06 will be effective January 1, 2024, and a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings is required upon adoption. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than January 1, 2021, including interim periods within that year. The Company adopted ASU 2020-06 effective January 1, 2021. The adoption of ASU 2020-06 did not have any impact on the Company’s financial statement presentation or disclosures.

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB, including its Emerging Issues Task Force, and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, did not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company's present or future financial statements and related disclosures.
