Corporate History

 

Investview, Inc. was incorporated on January 30, 1946, under the laws of the state of Utah as the Uintah Mountain Copper Mining Company. In January 2005, we changed domicile to Nevada and changed our name to Voxpath Holding, Inc. In September of 2006, we merged The Retirement Solution Inc. through a Share Purchase Agreement into Voxpath Holding, Inc. and then changed our name to TheRetirementSolution.Com, Inc. and in October 2008 changed our name to Global Investor Services, Inc., before changing our name to Investview, Inc., on March 27, 2012.

 

On March 31, 2017, we entered into a Contribution Agreement with the members of Wealth Generators, LLC, a limited liability company (“Wealth Generators”), pursuant to which the Wealth Generators Members agreed to contribute 100% of the outstanding securities of Wealth Generators in exchange for an aggregate of 1,358,670,942 shares of our common stock. This closing occurred after close of business on March 31, 2017, therefore, effective April 1, 2017, Wealth Generators became our wholly owned subsidiary.

 

On June 6, 2017, we entered into an Acquisition Agreement with Market Trend Strategies, LLC, a company whose members are also former members of our management. Under the Acquisition Agreement, we spun-off our operations that existed prior to the merger with Wealth Generators and sold the intangible assets used in those pre-merger operations in exchange for Market Trend Strategies’ assumption of $419,139 in pre-merger liabilities.

 

On February 28, 2018, we filed a name change for Wealth Generators LLC to Kuvera LLC (“Kuvera”), which did not affect the company’s tax and federal identification.

 

On May 7, 2018, we established WealthGen Global, LLC as a Utah limited liability company and our wholly owned subsidiary.

 

On July 20, 2018, we entered into a Purchase Agreement with United Games Marketing LLC, a Utah limited liability company, to purchase its wholly owned subsidiaries United Games, LLC and United League, LLC for 50,000,000 shares of our common stock.

 

On November 12, 2018, we established Kuvera France, S.A.S. to handle sales of our financial education and research in the European Union.

 

On December 30, 2018, our wholly owned subsidiary S.A.F.E. Management, LLC received its registration and disclosure approval from the National Futures Association. S.A.F.E. Management, LLC is now a New Jersey State Registered Investment Adviser, Commodities Trading Advisor, Commodity Pool Operator, and approved for over-the-counter FOREX advisory services.

 

On January 17, 2019, we renamed our nonoperating wholly owned subsidiary WealthGen Global, LLC to SAFETek, LLC, a Utah limited liability company.

 

On March 26, 2019, we established Kuvera (N.I.) LTD, a Northern Ireland entity as a wholly owned subsidiary of Kuvera, LLC, however, to date the subsidiary has had no operations.

 

Effective July 22, 2019, we renamed our non-operating wholly owned subsidiary Razor Data, LLC to APEX Tek, LLC, a Utah Limited Liability Company.

 

On January 11, 2021, we filed a name change for Kuvera, LLC to iGenius, LLC (“iGenius”) and on February 2, 2021, we filed a name change for Kuvera (N.I.) Limited to iGenius Global LTD.

 

On March 18, 2019, we established Investview Financial Group Holdings, LLC and Investview MTS, LLC as wholly owned subsidiaries of Investview, Inc. To date the subsidiaries have had no operations.

Our largest subsidiary is iGenius, LLC (formerly known as Kuvera, LLC), which delivers financial education, technology and research to individuals, as well as cryptocurrency packages, through a subscription-based multi-level marketing model. iGenius, LLC provides research, education, and investment tools designed to assist the self-directed investor in successfully navigating the financial markets. These services include research, trade alerts, and live trading rooms that include instruction in equities, options, FOREX, ETFs, binary options, crowdfunding and cryptocurrency sector education. In addition to trading tools and research, we also offer full education and software applications to assist the individual in debt reduction, increased savings, budgeting, and proper tax management. Each product subscription includes a core set of trading tools and research along with the personal finance management suite to provide an individual with complete access to the information necessary to cultivate and manage their financial situation. iGenius operations are located at Salt Lake City, Utah and more information can be found at igeniusglobal.com.

 

Kuvera France S.A.S. was our entity in France and iGenius Global LTD is our entity in Northern Ireland. These entities were responsible for distributing our products and services throughout the European Union. Kuvera France S.A.S. was closed in June of 2021.

 

S.A.F.E. Management, LLC is a Registered Investment Adviser and Commodity Trading Adviser that has been established to deliver automated trading strategies to individuals who find they lack the time to trade for themselves. SAFE is committed to bringing innovative trade methodologies, strategies and algorithms for all worldwide financial markets. SAFE Management is a state registered investment adviser and Commodity Trading Advisor with operations are located in our Eatontown, New Jersey Corporate Finance location. More information regarding S.A.F.E. Management, LLC can be found at safeadvglobal.com. SAFE Management will be joining the Investview Financial Group Holdings companies as we finalize the acquisition of SSA Technologies and MPower.

 

SAFETek, LLC operates in the high-speed processing computing space and utilizes net generation processing technologies to focus on artificial intelligence, data mining and blockchain technologies. SAFETek, LLC’s processing operation can be used for any of the following intense processing activities: protein folding, CGI rendering, Game Streaming, Machine & Deep Learning, Mining, Independent Financial Verification, and general high-speed computing. Key trending markets for Data Computation include Internet of Things, Smart Homes, smart cities, smart devices, Artificial Intelligence, blockchain technology, Virtual Reality, 3D animation, and health technology data to name a few. SAFETek has deployed a large-scale processing operation that is currently dedicated to high speed BTC mining operations. SAFETek has recently established a Texas based research, development and repair facility dedicated to repairing, improving and refurbishing high speed mining processors.

 

Apex Tek, LLC was the entity responsible for sales of the APEX program. Launched in September 2019, the APEX product pack included hardware, firmware, software and insurance that was purchased and then leased to SAFETek, LLC. We have currently ceased selling the APEX package and bought back all leases associated with the business.

 

United Games, LLC, United League, LLC, Investment Tools & Training, LLC, Investview Financial Group Holdings, LLC, and Investview MTS, LLC, have had no operations and will be restructured, eliminated, or used in conjunction with our anticipated acquisitions, as we continue to streamline and grow our operations.

 

Government Regulation

 

We have historically positioned the company as a knowledge provider and educator that seeks to augment a user’s informed decision-making process, rather than to act as a conductor of investment decisions or a representative of investment services. As such, most of our activities do not fall within the scope of securities industry regulation. Most of our products and services also do not require that any representative distributing our services conduct themselves as an investment advisor or broker. However, our subsidiary S.A.F.E. Management, LLC, recently received its registration and disclosure approval from the National Futures Association. S.A.F.E. Management, LLC is now a New Jersey State Registered Investment Adviser (“RIA”), Commodities Trading Advisor (“CTA”), and Commodity Pool Operator registered with the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) and is approved by the CFTC for over-the-counter FOREX advisory services. As a New Jersey-registered RIA, we are required to comply with the laws and regulations of those states in which we have the requisite number of customers governing the activities of investment advisers and the fees they can charge, as well as certain provisions of the Investment Adviser Act of 1940. As a CFTC registered CTA, Commodity Pool Operator, and FOREX adviser, we are required to comply with federal law and CFTC rules regulating those activities.

 

We have established these registrations and the advisory structure to offer automated trade execution, which is managed by S.A.F.E. Management, LLC, in its capacity as an RIA, for equities and equity options and in its capacity as a CTA for commodities, futures, and OTC Forex. In addition, SAFE provides traditional advisory services for clients who do not wish to trade for themselves. Automation of trades is only available through S.A.F.E. Management. No additional approvals are required for any of our current business activities. The cost of maintaining this additional regulated entity could have a material adverse effect on our business.

 

We are subject to government regulation in connection with securities laws and regulations applicable to all publicly owned companies as well as laws and regulations applicable to businesses generally. We are also increasingly subject to governmental regulation and legislation specifically targeting Internet companies, such as privacy regulations adopted at the local, state, national and international levels and taxes levied at the state level. Due to the increasing use of the internet, enforcement of existing laws, such as consumer protection regulations, in connection with web-based activities has become more aggressive, and it is expected that new laws and regulations will continue to be enacted at the local, state, national, and international levels. Such existing and new legislation, alone or combined with increasingly aggressive enforcement of existing laws, could have a material adverse effect on our future operating performance and business.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

Investors should carefully consider the following material risk factors as well as all other information set forth or referred to in this report before purchasing shares of our preferred or common stock. Investing in our preferred or common stock involves a high degree of risk. We believe all material risk factors have been presented below. If any of the following events or outcomes actually occur, our business operating results and financial condition would likely suffer. As a result, the trading price of our common stock could decline, and investors may lose all or part of the money paid to purchase our common stock.

 

Risks Related to our Business

 

We have a limited operating history and, therefore, there is an elevated risk of potential business failure unless we can overcome the various obstacles inherent to an early-stage business.

 

We have only limited prior business operations. Because of our limited operating history, investors may not have adequate information on which they can base an evaluation of our business and prospects. Investors should be aware of the difficulties, delays, and expenses normally encountered by an enterprise in its early stage, many of which are beyond our control, including unanticipated research and development expenses, employment costs, and administrative expenses. We cannot assure our investors that our proposed business plans as described herein will materialize or prove successful, or that we will be able to finalize development of our products or operate profitably.

 

Our operations and financial condition have been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and that may continue.

 

In December 2019, a strain of novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, was first reported in Wuhan, China, resulting in thousands of confirmed cases of the disease in China. By January, the Chinese government implemented a quarantine protocol for Wuhan and implemented other restrictions for other major Chinese cities, including mandatory business closures, social distancing measures, and various travel restrictions, all of which have subsequently been adopted in countries throughout the world. On March 11, 2020, as COVID-19 spread outside of China, the World Health Organization designated the outbreak as a global pandemic. This continued pandemic could affect our business, employees, operating results, ability to obtain additional funding, product development programs, research and development programs, suppliers and third-party manufacturers. To date the interrupted supply chains, lockdowns, and inability to deploy equipment to operations have had a significant negative effect on our SAFETek mining operations and that may continue.

 

We anticipate that COVID-19 and the prolonged public health crisis may negatively impact our financial condition and operating results; however, given the evolving health, economic, social, and governmental environments, the breadth and duration of the impact remains uncertain. Given the dynamic nature of these circumstances, the duration of any business disruption or potential impact to our business resulting from the COVID-19 coronavirus is difficult to predict and may increase our costs or expenses.

SAFETek LLC suffered supply chain issues and significant delays in establishing mining operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The supply chain issues caused the failure of the APEX program administered by APEXTek LLC who could not sustain operations. iGenius suffered the loss of all in-person marketing activities but pivoted to on-line marketing and zoom presentations which limited the impact to iGenius sales. iGenius (formerly Kuvera LLC) completed a full rebrand in the fourth quarter in alignment with the Company’s objectives to structure itself as a FINTECH leader.

 

We may not be able to fully protect our proprietary rights and we may infringe the proprietary rights of others, which could result in costly litigation.

 

Our future success depends on our ability to protect and preserve the proprietary rights related to our products. We cannot assure that we will be able to prevent third parties from using our intellectual property rights and technology without our authorization. We also rely on trade secrets, common law trademark rights, and trademark registrations, as well as confidentiality and work for hire, development, assignment, and license agreements with employees, consultants, third-party developers, licensees, and customers. Our protective measures for these intangible assets afford only limited protection and may be flawed or inadequate.

 

Policing unauthorized use of our technology is difficult and some foreign laws do not provide the same level of protection as U.S. laws. Litigation may be necessary in the future to enforce our intellectual property rights, to protect our trade secrets or patents that we may obtain, or to determine the validity and scope of the proprietary rights of others. Such litigation could result in substantial costs and diversion of resources and have a material adverse effect on our future operating results.

 

In recent years, there has been significant litigation in the United States involving patents and other intellectual property rights. In particular, there has been an increase in the filing of suits alleging infringement of intellectual property rights, which pressure defendants into entering settlement arrangements quickly to dispose of such suits, regardless of their merits. Other companies or individuals may allege that we infringe on their intellectual property rights. Litigation, particularly in the area of intellectual property rights, is costly and the outcome is inherently uncertain. In the event of an adverse result, we could be liable for substantial damages, and we may be forced to discontinue our use of the subject matter in question or obtain a license to use those rights or develop non-infringing alternatives.

 

Our business could be negatively affected by any adverse economic developments in the securities markets or the economy in general.

 

We depend on the interest of individuals in obtaining financial information and securities trading strategies to assist them in making their own investment decisions. Significant downturns in the securities markets or in general economic and political conditions may cause individuals to be reluctant to make their own investment decisions and thus decrease the demand for our products. Significant upturns in the securities markets or in general economic and political conditions may cause individuals to be less proactive in seeking ways to improve the returns on their trading or investment decisions and, thus, decrease the demand for our products.

 

We may encounter risks relating to security or other system disruptions and failures that could reduce the attractiveness of our sites and that could harm our business.

 

Although we have implemented various security mechanisms, our business is vulnerable to computer viruses, physical or electronic break-ins, and similar disruptions, which could lead to interruptions, delays, or loss of data. For instance, because a portion of our revenue is based on individuals using credit cards to purchase subscriptions over the Internet and a portion from advertisers that seek to encourage people to use the Internet to purchase goods or services, our business could be adversely affected by these break-ins or disruptions. Additionally, our operations depend on our ability to protect systems against damage from fire, earthquakes, power loss, telecommunications failure, and other events beyond our control. Moreover, our website may experience slower response times or other problems for a variety of reasons, including hardware and communication line capacity restraints, software failures, or significant increases in traffic when there have been important business or financial news stories. These strains on our systems could cause customer dissatisfaction and could discourage visitors from becoming paying subscribers. Our websites could experience disruptions or interruptions in service due to the failure or delay in the transmission or receipt of information from us. These types of occurrences could cause users to perceive our website and technology solutions as not functioning properly and cause them to use other methods or services of our competitors. Any disruption resulting from these actions may harm our business and may be expensive to remedy, may not be fully covered by our insurance, could damage our reputation, and discourage new and existing users from using our products and services. Any disruptions could increase costs and make profitability even more difficult to achieve.

 

We will need to introduce new products and services and enhance existing products and services to remain competitive.

 

Our future success depends in part on our ability to develop and enhance our products and services. In addition, the adoption of new Internet, networking or telecommunications technologies or other technological changes could require us to incur substantial expenditures to enhance or adapt our services or infrastructure. There are significant technical and financial costs and risks in the development of new or enhanced products and services, including the risk that we might be unable to effectively use new technologies, adapt our services to emerging industry standards, or develop, introduce and market enhanced or new products and services. An inability to develop new products and services, or enhance existing offerings, could have a material adverse effect on our profitability.

We rely on external service providers to perform certain key functions.

 

We rely on a number of external service providers for certain key technology, processing, service, and support functions. External content providers provide us with crypto mining services, financial information, market news, charts, option and stock quotes, research reports, and other fundamental data that we offer to clients. These service providers face technological and operational risks of their own. Any significant failures by them, including improper use or disclosure of our confidential client, employee, or company information, could cause us to incur losses and could harm our reputation.

 

We cannot assure that any external service providers will be able to continue to provide these services in an efficient, cost-effective manner or that they will be able to adequately expand their services to meet our needs. An interruption in or the cessation of service by any external service provider as a result of systems failures, capacity constraints, financial constraints or problems, unanticipated trading market closures, or for any other reason, and our inability to make alternative arrangements in a smooth and timely manner, if at all, could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, and financial condition.

 

We could face liability and other costs relating to storage and use of personal information about our users.

 

Users provide us with personal information, including tax identification numbers, which we do not share without the user’s consent. Despite this policy of obtaining consent, however, if third persons were able to penetrate our network security or otherwise misappropriate our users’ personal information, we could be subject to liability, including claims for unauthorized purchases with credit card information, impersonation or other similar fraud claims, and misuses of personal information, such as for unauthorized marketing purposes. New privacy legislation may further increase this type of liability. Furthermore, we could incur additional expenses if additional regulations regarding the use of personal information were introduced or if federal or state agencies were to investigate our privacy practices. We do not store user credit card information and rely upon our merchant processing partners to collect and store this information with the necessary Payment Card Industry Security Standards compliance in place. However, a breach of the merchant’s security standards could create liability for us.

 

Our business could be negatively affected if we are required to defend allegations of unfair competition and unfair false or deceptive acts or practices in or affecting commerce.

 

Advertising and marketing of our products in the United States are also subject to regulation by the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) under the Federal Trade Commission Act, or FTC Act. Among other things, the FTC Act prohibits unfair methods of competition and unfair false or deceptive acts or practices in or affecting commerce. The FTC Act also makes it illegal to disseminate or cause to be disseminated any false advertisement. The FTC routinely reviews websites to identify questionable advertising claims and practices. Competitors sometimes inform the FTC when they believe other competitors are violating the FTC Act and consumers also notify the FTC of what they believe may be wrongful advertising. The FTC may initiate a nonpublic investigation that focuses on our advertising claims, which usually involves nonpublic, pre-lawsuit, extensive formal discovery. Such an investigation may be lengthy and expensive to defend and result in a publicly disclosed consent decree or settlement agreement. If no settlement can be reached, the FTC may start an administrative proceeding or a federal court lawsuit against us or our principal officers. The FTC often seeks to recover from the defendants, whether in a consent decree or a proceeding, any or all of the following: (i) consumer redress in the form of monetary relief or disgorgement of profits; (ii) significant reporting requirements for several years; and (iii) injunctive relief. In addition, most, if not all, states have statutes prohibiting deceptive and unfair acts and practices. The requirements under these state statutes are similar to those of the FTC Act.

 

We accept, disburse, and hold cryptocurrencies, which may subject us to exchange risk and additional tax and regulatory requirements.

 

We accept cryptocurrencies as a form of payment and satisfy liabilities by issuing cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies are not considered legal tender or backed by any government and have experienced significant price volatility, technological glitches, and various law enforcement and regulatory interventions. If we fail to comply with regulations or prohibitions applicable to us, we could face regulatory or other enforcement actions and potential fines and other consequences. We also hold cryptocurrencies directly, subjecting us to exchange rate risk as well as the risk that regulatory or other developments and the recent price volatility may adversely affect the value of the cryptocurrencies we hold. The uncertainties regarding legal and regulatory requirements relating to cryptocurrencies or transactions using cryptocurrencies, as well as potential accounting and tax issues or other requirements relating to cryptocurrencies, could have a material adverse effect on our business.

 

Climate change, and the regulatory and legislative developments related to climate change, may materially adversely affect our business and financial condition.

 

The impacts of climate change may materially and adversely impact the cost, production and financial performance of our operations. Further, any impacts to our business and financial condition as a result of climate change are likely to occur over a sustained period of time and are therefore difficult to quantify with any degree of specificity. For example, extreme weather events may result in adverse physical effects on portions of our infrastructure, which could disrupt our supply chain and ultimately our business operations. In addition, disruption of transportation and distribution systems could result in reduced operational efficiency and customer service interruption. Climate related events have the potential to disrupt our business, including the business of our customers, and may cause us to experience higher attrition, losses and additional costs to resume operations.

In addition, a number of governments or governmental bodies have introduced or are contemplating legislative and regulatory changes in response to various climate change interest groups and the potential impact of climate change. Given the significant amount of electrical power required to operate cryptocurrency miners, as well the environmental impact of mining for metals used in the production of mining servers, the cryptocurrency mining industry may become a target for future environmental and energy regulation. Legislation and increased regulation regarding climate change could impose significant costs on us and our suppliers, including costs related to increased energy requirements, capital equipment, environmental monitoring and reporting, and other costs to comply with such regulations. Any future climate change regulations could also negatively impact our ability to compete with companies situated in areas not subject to such limitations. Given the political significance and uncertainty around the impact of climate change and how it should be addressed, we cannot predict how legislation and regulation will affect our financial condition, operating performance and ability to compete. Furthermore, even without such regulation, increased awareness and any adverse publicity in the global marketplace about potential impacts on climate change by us or other companies in our industry could harm our reputation. Any of the foregoing could result in a material adverse effect on our business and financial condition.

 

Our business could be negatively affected if we are required to defend allegations that our direct selling activities are fraudulent or deceptive schemes, are against public interest, or are the sale of unregistered securities.

 

Direct selling activities are regulated by the FTC, as well as various federal, state, and local governmental agencies in the United States and foreign countries. These laws and regulations are generally intended to prevent fraudulent or deceptive schemes, often referred to as “pyramid” schemes, which compensate participants primarily for recruiting additional participants without significant emphasis on product sales. Regulators may take the position that some or all of our products are deemed to be securities, the sale of which has not been registered. The laws and regulations governing direct selling are modified from time to time. This may require us to make changes to our business model or our compensation plan and could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations and financial condition.

 

Our independent distributors could fail to comply with applicable legal requirements or our distributor policies and procedures, which could result in claims against us that could harm our business.

 

Our independent distributors are independent contractors and, accordingly, we are not in a position to directly provide the same oversight and direction as we could if they were our employees. As a result, we cannot assure that our independent distributors will comply with applicable laws or regulations or our distributor policies and procedures.

 

Extensive federal, state, local, and international laws regulate our business, products and direct selling activities. Because we have expanded into foreign countries, our policies and procedures for our independent distributors differ slightly in some countries due to the different legal requirements of each country in which we do business.

 

Our proprietary systems may be compromised by hackers.

 

Our current products and other products and services that we may develop in the future will be based on proprietary software and customer-specific data that we protect by routine measures such as password protection, confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements with employees, and similar measures. Any unauthorized access to our software or data could materially disrupt our business and result in financial loss and damages to our business and reputation.

 

Risks Related to Our Common Stock

 

We have a history of operating losses and may report future losses that could cause our stock price to decline.

 

For the operating period since inception through March 31, 2021, we have reported an accumulated deficit of $46,038,271. We reported net income of $565,793 for the year ended March 31, 2021, and a net income from operations of $774,389. We cannot be certain whether we will continue to be profitable. Also, any economic weakness or global recession may limit our ability to market our products. Any of these factors could cause our stock price to decline and result in investors losing a portion or all of their investment.

 

We may need to raise additional capital. If we are unable to raise additional capital, our business may fail.

 

If we find that we need, but are unable, to obtain adequate additional financing, we may not be able to successfully market and sell our products and our business operations will most likely be discontinued. To secure additional financing, we may need to borrow money or sell more securities. Under these circumstances, we may be unable to secure additional financing on favorable terms or at all. Selling additional stock, either privately or publicly, would dilute the equity interests of our stockholders. If we borrow money, we will have to pay interest and may also have to agree to restrictions that limit our operating flexibility. If we are unable to obtain adequate financing, we may have to curtail business operations, which would have a material negative effect on operating results and most likely result in a lower stock price.

Our common stock price has been and may continue to be extremely volatile.

 

Our common stock has closed as low as $0.015 per share and as high as $0.424 per share during the most recent fiscal year. We believe this volatility may be caused, in part, by variations in our quarterly operating results, delays in development of our technologies, changes in market valuations of similar companies, and the volume of our stock in the market.

 

Additionally, in recent years the stock market in general, and the OTC Markets and technology stocks in particular, have experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations. In some cases, these fluctuations are unrelated or disproportionate to the operating performance of the underlying company. These market and industry factors may materially and adversely affect our stock price regardless of our operating performance. The historical trading of our common stock is not necessarily an indicator of how it will trade in the future and our trading price as of the date of this report is not necessarily an indicator of what the trading price of our common stock might be in the future.

 

In the past, class action litigation has often been brought against companies following periods of volatility in the market price of those companies’ common stock. If we become involved in this type of litigation in the future it could result in substantial costs and diversion of management attention and resources, which could have a further negative effect on our stock price.

 

Shares of our common stock may never become eligible for trading on Nasdaq or a national securities exchange.

 

We cannot assure that we will ever be listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market or on another national securities exchange. Listing on one of the Nasdaq markets or one of the national securities exchanges is subject to a variety of requirements, including minimum trading price and minimum public “float” requirements. There are also continuing eligibility requirements for companies listed on national securities exchanges. If we are unable to satisfy the initial or continuing eligibility requirements of any such market, then our stock may not be listed or could be delisted. This could result in a lower trading price for our common stock and may limit the ability of our stockholders to sell their shares, which could result in a loss of some or all of their investments.

 

If we fail to file periodic reports with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, our common stock will not be able to be traded on the OTCQB.

 

Although our common stock trades on the OTCQB, a regular trading market for our common stock may not be sustained in the future. OTC Markets limits quotation on the OTCQB to securities of issuers that are current in their reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. If we fail to remain current in the filing of our reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission, our common stock will not be able to be traded on the OTCQB. The OTCQB is an inter-dealer market that provides significantly less liquidity than a national securities exchange or automated quotation system.

 

Because we have no plans to pay dividends on our common stock, stockholders must look solely to appreciation of our common stock to realize a gain on their investments.

 

We do not anticipate paying any dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future. We currently intend to retain future earnings, if any, to finance the expansion of our business. Our future dividend policy is within the discretion of our board of directors and will depend upon numerous factors, including our business, financial condition, results of operations, capital requirements, and investment opportunities. Accordingly, stockholders must look solely to appreciation of our common stock to realize a gain on their investment. This appreciation may not occur.

 

Certain provisions of Nevada law and of our corporate charter may inhibit a potential acquisition of our company, and this could depress our stock price.

 

Nevada corporate law includes provisions that could delay, defer, or prevent a change in control of our company or our management. These provisions could discourage information contests and make it more difficult for our stockholders to elect directors and take other corporate actions. As a result, these provisions could limit the price that investors are willing to pay in the future for shares of our common stock. For example:

 

  without prior stockholder approval, our board of directors has the authority to issue one or more classes of preferred stock with rights senior to those of our common stock and to determine the rights, privileges, and preferences of that preferred stock;
     
  there is no cumulative voting in the election of directors, which would otherwise allow less than a majority of stockholders to elect director candidates; and
     
  stockholders cannot call a special meeting of stockholders.

Our indemnification of our directors and officers may limit the rights of our stockholders.

 

While our board of directors and officers are generally accountable to our stockholders and us, the liability of our directors and officers to all parties is limited in certain respects under applicable state law and our articles of incorporation and bylaws, as in effect. Further, we have agreed or may agree to indemnify our directors and officers against liabilities not attributable to certain limited circumstances. This limitation of liability and indemnity may limit rights that our stockholders would otherwise have to seek redress against our directors and officers.

 

Additional issuances of stock options and warrants, convertible notes, and stock grants will cause additional substantial dilution to our stockholders.

 

Given our limited cash, liquidity, and revenues, it is likely that in the future, as in the past, we will issue additional warrants, stock grants, and convertible debt to finance our future business operations and acquisitions and strategic relationships. The issuance of additional shares of common stock, the exercise of warrants, and the conversion of debt to stock could cause additional dilution to our stockholders and could have further adverse effects on the market price for our securities or on our ability to obtain future financing. The 2018 increase in our authorized shares from two billion to ten billion increased the magnitude of this risk substantially.

 

The amount of authorized common stock may result in management implementing anti-takeover procedures by issuing new securities.

 

The proportion of unissued authorized shares to issued shares could, under certain circumstances, have an anti-takeover effect, for example, by permitting issuances that would dilute the stock ownership of a person seeking to effect a change in the composition of our board of directors or contemplating a tender offer or other transaction for the combination of our company with another entity. Although, we have no current plans to issue additional stock for this purpose, management could use the additional shares that are now available or that may be available after a possible further recapitalization to resist or frustrate a third-party transaction. Generally, no stockholder approval would be necessary for the issuance of all or any portion of the additional shares of common stock unless required by law or any rules or regulations to which we are subject.

 

Our stockholders may not recoup all or any portion of their investment upon our dissolution.

 

In the event of a liquidation, dissolution, or winding-up of our company, whether voluntary or involuntary, our net remaining proceeds and/or assets, after paying all of our debts and liabilities, will be distributed to the holders of common stock on a pro-rata basis. We cannot assure that we will have available assets to pay to the holders of common stock any amounts upon such a liquidation, dissolution, or winding-up of our company. In this event, our stockholders could lose some or all of their investment.

Market Information

 

Our common stock is traded on the OTCQB under the symbol “INVU.”

 

As of June 23, 2020, we had approximately 699 stockholders of record of our common stock and 2,993,981,329 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.

 

Dividends

 

Holders of shares of common stock are entitled to share pro rata in dividends and distributions for the common stock when, as, and if declared by the board of directors out of funds legally available therefor. We have not paid any dividends on our common stock and intend to retain earnings, if any, to finance the development and expansion of our business. Future dividend policy is subject to the discretion of the board of directors and will depend upon a number of factors, including future revenues, capital requirements, overall financial condition, and such other factors as our board of directors deems relevant.

 

Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities

 

In June of 2021 we issued 4,000,000 and 6,500,000 shares of common stock to two different employees for services and compensation, which vest over time and are subject to forfeiture if the employee is not in good standing at the time each vesting date passes. We also issued 1,000,000 shares of common stock for services to an outside consultant.

 

The securities represented by each of the transactions described above were issued in reliance on the exemption from registration provided in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, for transactions not involving any public offering. Each of the investors is either an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D or a sophisticated investor able to bear the risks of the investment. Each investor confirmed the foregoing and acknowledged that the securities must be acquired and held for investment. All certificates evidencing the shares of common stock on conversion of the notes, issuances under the restricted stock grants, or upon the exercise of the warrants will bear a restrictive legend. No underwriter participated in the offer and sale of these securities, and no commission or other remuneration was paid or given directly or indirectly in connection therewith.

Plan of Operations

 

During the period from April 1, 2020, to March 31, 2021, our management team began its global FINTECH plan when COVID-19 caused the shutdown of global marketing and caused significant delays in the establishment of our mining operations. We adjusted for each of the setbacks while continuing to execute its corporate plan for growth which included the strategic partnership with DBR Capital LLC for necessary funding, the establishment of a new Board of Directors, and the acquisition and pending closing of a Broker-Dealer, Registered Investment Advisor and trading tools platform.

Our subsidiaries and their operations, if any, include the following:

 

  iGenius LLC, Kuvera France, S.A.S. (through June of 2021 when it was closed), and iGenius Global, LTD distribute our financial education platform and services, as well as cryptocurrency packages, that are dedicated to the individual consumer. The entities utilize an affiliate or direct marketing model for distribution. In late 2019, early 2020, as COVID 19 was beginning to spread worldwide, the Kuvera companies completed a product and bonus plan rebuild and was able to launch these services and create stabilized monthly revenue. We found that COVID-19 negatively impacted our distribution channel as all of our distributors were unable to conduct in person meetings, trainings, or events, however, the distributors pivoted to on-line events, virtual meetings and ultimately stabilized and grew our subscription sales. The compensation plan that was introduced in January of 2020 further drove our operating margins by rewarding growth and retention. This aligns our distributors with our company objectives, and we are attracting seasoned leadership from around the world.
     
  ApexTek, LLC and SAFETek, LLC, our subsidiaries that sold the APEX package saw rapid growth during fiscal 2020. Under the program we sold high powered data processing equipment to our customers and they leased the equipment back to us. We began to experience difficulties in sourcing equipment for the program which later revealed itself to be early supply chain issues related to COVID 19. The supply chain, delivery, customs, and lack of human resources caused by global and U.S. lockdowns further caused issues in deploying the equipment. On June 30, 2020, we temporarily discontinued the APEX program to assess the delays, audit the transaction and determine our ability to meet the lease commitments. The assessment took place in July and August and indicated we would not be able to meet the APEX lease obligations and would be in default to the lease holders. In September, our board of directors voted to approve a buyback program wherein all APEX purchasers were offered a 48-month promissory note to ensure a 125% return of their purchase price in exchange for cancellation of the lease and our purchase of all rights and obligations under the lease. The buyback program also ensured all APEX purchasers were able to purchase a protection plan from a third-party provider, wherein each purchaser could protect their initial purchase price and obtain 50% of their APEX purchase price at five years or 100% of the APEX purchase price at ten years. The lease buyback program closed on November 30, 2020, with approximately 99% of the APEX purchasers accepting the offer. Apex Tek, LLC has discontinued operations while SAFETek LLC continues to source, acquire and deploy mining equipment in order to operate and expand its high-speed processing and mining operations.
     
  SAFE Management, LLC, a Registered Investment Advisor and Commodity Trading Advisor, did not receive the necessary marketing and management required for growth during the year ended March 31, 2021, however, will become a part of Investview Financial Group Holdings, LLC which will include the newly acquired companies once closing is complete.
     
  United Games, United League, and Investment Tools & Training, LLC have had no operations and will be restructured or eliminated completely as we continue to streamline operations.

 

The Board of Directors, working with senior management, was able to simultaneously begin to implement is strategic FINTECH plan while addressing the effects of the worldwide pandemic on operations. These actions successfully limited the negative impact while establishing the proper foundation for growth.

 

iGenius worldwide subscription sales and SAFETek mining operations were able to reach historical revenue growth during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, paving the way for us to execute on our financial group holding plans for fiscal 2022.

 

Accomplishments during the period of April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021 include:

 

  April 2020 – Company established the Perpetual Preferred Unit Offering for Series B Preferred Shares with an annual 13% dividend and 5 warrants for common stock exercisable at $0.10. The Offering closed on June 22, 2021. The Company sold 252,192 Perpetual Preferred Units.

Results of Operations

 

Year Ended March 31, 2021, Compared to Year Ended March 31, 2020

 

Revenues

 

Revenue, net, increased $14,088,571, or 58%, from $24,183,590 for the year ended March 31, 2020, to $38,272,161 for the year ended March 31, 2021. The increase can be fully explained by a $14.4m increase in our mining revenue from 2020 to 2021, which was due to the growth in our cryptocurrency mining operations. Our gross billings also increased by 55%, or $14,473,802, to $40,703,751 in the year ended March 31, 2021, versus $26,229,949 in the year ended March 31, 2020, which was also due to the growth in our mining operations.

 

Operating Costs

 

Operating costs decreased $9,978, or 0%, from $37,507,750 for the year ended March 31, 2020, to $37,497,772 for the year ended March 31, 2021. We saw an increase in our cost of sales and services of $5,083,948, or 203%, from $2,507,071 for the year ended March 31, 2020, to $7,591,019 for the year ended March 31, 2021. This increase was due to the increase in our mining operations and the costs associated with running our mining equipment, which include hosting, electrical, and power costs. We also recorded an increase in professional fees of $1,799,555, or 133%, from $1,356,574 for the year ended March 31, 2020, to $3,156,129 for the year ended March 31, 2021, which was due to our issuance of 82,000,000 shares of common stock for professional services valued at $1,640,000 based on the market value on the day of issuance. The increase was offset by a decrease in our impairment expense of $3,629,658, or 86%, from $4,230,741 for the year ended March 31, 2020 to $601,083 for the year ended March 31, 2021. The large expense in the prior year was due to a long-term license agreement being written off when we discontinued the use of the license, along with the write-off of fixed assets that were abandoned and the write-off of intangible assets we determined were not going to be recoverable. In addition, there was a decrease of $2,226,943 in salary and related costs and a decrease of $1,117,752 in general and administrative costs due to overall cost-cutting measures taken during the year ended March 31, 2021.

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

We recorded other expense of $(59,023) for the year ended March 31, 2021, which was a difference of $7,894,625, or 99%, from the prior period other expense of $(7,953,648). The change is due to a larger gain on debt extinguishment ($5,476,549 for the year ended March 31, 2021 compared to $2,018,791 for the year ended March 31, 2020) and less interest expense ($6,647,217 for the year ended March 31, 2021 compared to $10,677,768 for the year ended March 31, 2020) in the current year when compared to the prior year. These changes were due mostly to the restructuring of our debt arrangements and our ability to repay higher interest loans with new funding arrangements that had more favorable terms, along with the APEX lease buyback program which allowed us to cancel our APEX leases in exchange for notes with no interest.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

During the year ended March 31, 2021, we recorded net income of $565,793 compared to a net loss of $21,285,191 recorded for the year ended March 31, 2020. We were able to show income from operations of $774,389 in the current year and generate cash of $6,887,284 through our operating activities. We used this cash from operations and cash generated from financing activities of $2,570,264 to fund the purchase of 2,933,899 worth of fixed assets. As a result, our cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash increased by $6,524,650 to $6,661,827 as compared to $137,177 at the beginning of the fiscal year.

 

During the year ended March 31, 2021, we raised $5,893,135 in cash proceeds from related parties, $1,405,300 in cash proceeds from new lending arrangements, and $1,960,325 in cash proceeds from the sale of preferred stock. As of March 31, 2021 we have cash of $5,389,654 and a working capital balance of $2,005,576. Further, subsequent to March 31, 2021 we received gross proceeds of $2,471,875 in connection with our Preferred Unit Offering and plan to continue to increase revenues and decrease expenses to generate income from operations. As of March 31, 2021 our unrestricted cryptocurrency balance was reported at a cost basis of $4,679,256. The fair market value of those holdings, based on the closing market price on March 31, 2021, was $5,978,597.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of our consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect our reported assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses, and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We base our estimates and judgments on historical experience and on various other assumptions we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Future events, however, may differ markedly from our current expectations and assumptions. While there are several significant accounting policies affecting our consolidated financial statements; we believe the following critical accounting policies involves the most complex, difficult, and subjective estimates and judgments.

 

Basis of Accounting

 

Our policy is to prepare our financial statements on the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Investview, Inc., and our wholly owned subsidiaries: iGenius, LLC (formerly Kuvera, LLC), Kuvera France S.A.S., Apex Tek, LLC (formerly Razor Data, LLC), SAFETek, LLC (formerly WealthGen Global, LLC), S.A.F.E. Management, LLC, United Games, LLC, United League, LLC, Investment Tools & Training, LLC, iGenius Global LTD (formerly Kuvera (N.I.) LTD), Investview Financial Group Holdings, LLC and Investview MTS, LLC. Through March 31, 2019 we had determined that one affiliated entity, Kuvera LATAM S.A.S., which we previously conducted business with, was a variable interest entity and we were the primary beneficiary of the entity’s activities, which, at the time, were similar to those of Kuvera, LLC (now iGenius, LLC). As a result, through March 31, 2019 we had consolidated the accounts of this variable interest entity into the consolidated financial statements. Further, because the Company did not have any ownership interest in this variable interest entity, the Company had allocated the contributed capital in the variable interest entity as a component of noncontrolling interest. As of April 1, 2019, Kuvera LATAM S.A.S. had no operations and ceased to exist, therefore, as of that date, no consolidation of the entity was necessary and we recorded a gain on deconsolidation of $53,739 to eliminate the intercompany account with Kuvera LATAM S.A.S. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of these financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Subscription Revenue

 

The majority of our revenue is generated by subscription sales and payment is received at the time of purchase. We recognize subscription revenue in accordance with ASC 606-10 where revenue is measured based on a consideration specified in a contract with a customer and recognized when we satisfy the performance obligation specified in each contract. Our performance obligation is to provide services over a fixed subscription period; therefore, we recognize revenue ratably over the subscription period and deferred revenue is recorded for the portion of the subscription period subsequent to each reporting date. Additionally, we offer a 10-day trial period to first time subscription customers, during which a full refund can be requested if a customer does not wish to continue with the product. Revenues are deferred during the trial period as collection is not probable until that time has passed. Revenues are presented net of refunds, sales incentives, credits, and known and estimated credit card chargebacks.

 

Mining Revenue

 

Through our wholly owned subsidiary, SAFETek, LLC, we leased equipment under a sales-type lease through June of 2020. In June of 2020 we cancelled all leases and purchased all of the rights and obligations under the leases, which included obtaining ownership of all equipment. We use the equipment on blockchain networks to validate and add blocks of transactions to blockchain ledgers (commonly referred to as “mining”). As compensation for mining we are issued fees from processors and/or block rewards that are newly created cryptocurrency units granted to us. Our mining activities constitute our ongoing major and central operations of SAFETek, LLC. Because we do not have contracts, nor do we have customers associated with our mining revenue, we recognize revenue when fees and/or rewards are settled, or ultimately granted to us as a result of our mining activities.

 

15

 

 

Cryptocurrency Revenue

 

We generate revenue from the sale of cryptocurrency packages to our customers through an arrangement with third-party suppliers. The various packages include different amounts of coin with differing rates of returns and terms and, in some cases, include a product protection option that allows the purchaser to protect their initial purchase price. The protection allows the purchaser to obtain 50% of their purchase price at five years or 100% of their purchase price at ten years.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 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, which simplifies the accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity, including convertible instruments and contracts on an entity’s own equity. Under current GAAP, there are five accounting models for convertible debt instruments. ASU 2020-06 removes from U.S. GAAP the separation models for (1) convertible debt with a cash conversion feature and (2) convertible instruments with a beneficial conversion feature. As a result, after adopting the ASU’s guidance, entities will not separately present in equity an embedded conversion feature in such debt. Instead, they will account for a convertible debt instrument wholly as debt, and for convertible preferred stock wholly as preferred stock (i.e., as a single unit of account), unless (1) a convertible instrument contains features that require bifurcation as a derivative under ASC 815 or (2) a convertible debt instrument was issued at a substantial premium. Additionally, for convertible debt instruments with substantial premiums accounted for as paid-in capital, the FASB decided to add disclosures about (1) the fair value amount and the level of fair value hierarchy of the entire instrument for public business entities and (2) the premium amount recorded as paid-in capital. ASU 2020-06 will be effective for public business entities that meet the definition of a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filer, excluding entities eligible to be smaller reporting companies as defined by the SEC, for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact of the adoption of this accounting pronouncement to its financial statements.

 

16

 

 

We have noted no other recently issued accounting pronouncements that we have not yet adopted that we believe are applicable or would have a material impact on our financial statements.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, revenues, and results of operations, liquidity, or capital expenditures.

 

Trends, Risks, and Uncertainties

 

We have sought to identify what we believe to be the most significant risks to our business, but we cannot predict whether, or to what extent, any of such risks may be realized nor can we guarantee that we have identified all possible risks that might arise. Investors should carefully consider all such risk factors before making an investment decision with respect to our common stock.

 

Cautionary Factors That May Affect Future Results

 

We have sought to identify what we believe are significant risks to our business, but we cannot predict whether, or to what extent, any of such risks may be realized nor can we guarantee that we have identified all possible risks that might arise.

 

Potential Fluctuations in Annual Operating Results

 

Our annual operating results may fluctuate significantly in the future as a result of a variety of factors, most of which are outside our control, including: the demand for our products and services; seasonal trends in purchasing, the amount and timing of capital expenditures and other costs relating to the commercial and consumer financing; price competition or pricing changes in the market; technical difficulties or system downtime; general economic conditions; and economic conditions specific to the consumer financing sector.

 

Our annual results may also be significantly impacted by the accounting treatment of acquisitions, financing transactions, or other matters. Particularly at our early stage of development, such accounting treatment can have a material impact on the results for any quarter. Due to the foregoing factors, among others, it is likely that our operating results may fall below our expectations or those of investors in some future quarter.

 

Management of Growth

 

We may experience growth, which will place a strain on our managerial, operational, and financial systems resources. To accommodate our current size and manage growth if it occurs, we must devote management attention and resources to improve our financial strength and our operational systems. Further, we will need to expand, train, and manage our sales and distribution base. There is no guarantee that we will be able to effectively manage our existing operations or the growth of our operations, or that our facilities, systems, procedures, or controls will be adequate to support any future growth. Our ability to manage our operations and any future growth will have a material effect on our stockholders.

 

If we fail to remain current on our reporting requirements, we could be removed from the OTCQB tier of OTC Markets, which would limit the ability of broker-dealers to sell our securities and the ability of stockholders to sell their securities in the secondary market.

 

Companies trading on the OTCQB tier of OTC Markets, such as us, must be reporting issuers under Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and must be current in their reports under Section 13, in order to maintain price quotation privileges on the OTCQB tier. If we fail to remain current on our reporting requirements, we could be removed from the OTCQB tier. As a result, the market liquidity for our securities could be severely adversely affected by limiting the ability of broker-dealers to sell our securities and the ability of stockholders to sell their securities in the secondary market.

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that material information required to be disclosed in our periodic reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including the principal executive officer and the principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rule 13(a)-15(e) under the Exchange Act, as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on this evaluation management concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of March 31, 2021.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Our internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurances regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of our financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree or compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

With the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Accounting Officer (principal financial officer), our management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2021 based on the framework in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”). Based on our evaluation management concluded that we maintained effective internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2021, based on the COSO framework criteria. Management believes our processes and controls are sufficient to ensure the consolidated financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2021, included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K, were fairly stated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

 

Management’s report on internal control over financial reporting was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to Securities and Exchange Commission rules that permit us to provide only management’s report in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Accounting Officer (principal financial officer), does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the company have been detected. These inherent limitations include, but are not limited to, the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the control. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

 

Changes in Internal Controls

 

During the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021, there have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal controls over financial reporting.

The lender had the right to convert up to $2,600,000 of the outstanding and unpaid principal amount into shares of our common stock at a conversion price of $0.005 per share, subject to adjustment. At inception we recorded a beneficial conversion feature of $1,000,000 as a debt discount (see Note 10) and we recorded $2,600,000 as a debt discount, representing the difference between the face value of the note and the proceeds received. Effective March 31, 2020 we entered into a settlement agreement to issue 200,000,000 shares of our common stock (see Note 10) to repay the $3,600,000 convertible promissory note and $500,000 worth of short-term advances (see [1] above), for a total of $4,100,000 worth of related party debt settled.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and

Stockholders of Investview, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Consolidated Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Investview Inc. (the Company) as of March 31, 2021, and the related consolidated statements of operations and other comprehensive income (loss), stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the year ended March 31, 2021, 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 March 31, 2021, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year ended March 31, 2021, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The financial statements of Investview, Inc., as of March 31, 2020, were audited by other auditors whose report dated June 29, 2020, expressed an unqualified opinion on those financial statements.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

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

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. 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 audit, 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 audit included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Critical Audit Matters

 

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

 

Revenue Recognition

 

As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, when another party is involved in providing goods or services to the Company’s clients, a determination is made as to who is acting in the capacity as the principal in the sales transaction. In addition, the Company has Mining Revenues associated with the mining of crypto currencies that requires significant judgements with regard to how the revenues are recognized.

 

Auditing management’s evaluation of agreements with customers involves significant judgment, given the fact that some agreements require management’s evaluation of principal versus agent. Auditing management’s evaluation of the accounting for mining revenues recognized involved significant judgement and subjectivity due to lack of formal GAAP guidance in the United States.

 

To evaluate the appropriateness and accuracy of the assessment by management, we evaluated management’s assessment in relationship to the relevant agreements.

Stockholders of Investview, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Investview, Inc. (the Company) as of March 31, 2020, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the year ended March 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 March 31, 2020, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year ended March 31, 2020, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Consideration of the Company’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 4 to the financial statements, the Company has suffered losses from operations and its current cash flow is not enough to meet current needs. This raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regards to this matter are also described in Note 4. 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 audit in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. 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 audit, 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 audit included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

MARCH 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF BUSINESS

 

Organization

 

Investview, Inc. was incorporated on January 30, 1946, under the laws of the state of Utah as the Uintah Mountain Copper Mining Company. In January 2005, we changed domicile to Nevada and changed our name to Voxpath Holding, Inc. In September of 2006, we merged The Retirement Solution Inc. through a Share Purchase Agreement into Voxpath Holdings, Inc. and then changed our name to TheRetirementSolution.Com, Inc. and in October 2008 changed our name to Global Investor Services, Inc., before changing our name to Investview, Inc., on March 27, 2012.

 

On March 31, 2017, we entered into a Contribution Agreement with the members of Wealth Generators, LLC, a limited liability company (“Wealth Generators”), pursuant to which the Wealth Generators members agreed to contribute 100% of the outstanding securities of Wealth Generators in exchange for an aggregate of 1,358,670,942 shares of our common stock. The closing of the Contribution Agreement was effective April 1, 2017, and Wealth Generators became our wholly owned subsidiary and the former members of Wealth Generators became our stockholders and control the majority of our outstanding common stock.

 

On June 6, 2017, we entered into an Acquisition Agreement with Market Trend Strategies, LLC, a company whose members are also former members of our management. Under the Acquisition Agreement, we spun-off our operations that existed prior to the merger with Wealth Generators and sold the intangible assets used in those pre-merger operations in exchange for Market Trend Strategies’ assumption of $419,139 in pre-merger liabilities.

 

On February 28, 2018, we filed a name change for Wealth Generators, LLC to Kuvera, LLC (“Kuvera”). This did not affect the company’s tax and federal identification.

Effective July 22, 2019, we renamed our non-operating wholly owned subsidiary Razor Data, LLC to APEX Tek, LLC, a Utah Limited Liability Company.

 

On January 11, 2021, we filed a name change for Kuvera, LLC to iGenius, LLC (“iGenius”) and on February 2, 2021, we filed a name change for Kuvera (N.I.) Limited to iGenius Global LTD.

We have currently ceased selling the APEX package and bought back all leases associated with the business.

 

United Games, LLC, United League, LLC, Investment Tools & Training, LLC, Investview Financial Group Holdings, LLC, and Investview MTS, LLC, have had no operations and will be restructured, eliminated, or used in conjunction with our anticipated acquisitions, as we continue to streamline and grow our operations.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Accounting

 

Our policy is to prepare our financial statements on the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Investview, Inc., and our wholly owned subsidiaries: iGenius, LLC (formerly Kuvera, LLC), Kuvera France S.A.S., Apex Tek, LLC (formerly Razor Data, LLC), SAFETek, LLC (formerly WealthGen Global, LLC), S.A.F.E. Management, LLC, United Games, LLC, United League, LLC, Investment Tools & Training, LLC, iGenius Global LTD (formerly Kuvera (N.I.) LTD), Investview Financial Group Holdings, LLC, and Investview MTS, LLC. Through March 31, 2019 we had determined that one affiliated entity, Kuvera LATAM S.A.S., which we previously conducted business with, was a variable interest entity and we were the primary beneficiary of the entity’s activities, which, at the time, were similar to those of Kuvera, LLC (now iGenius, LLC). As a result, through March 31, 2019 we had consolidated the accounts of this variable interest entity into the consolidated financial statements. Further, because the Company did not have any ownership interest in this variable interest entity, the Company had allocated the contributed capital in the variable interest entity as a component of noncontrolling interest. As of April 1, 2019, Kuvera LATAM S.A.S. had no operations and ceased to exist, therefore, as of that date, no consolidation of the entity was necessary and we recorded a gain on deconsolidation of $53,739 to eliminate the intercompany account with Kuvera LATAM S.A.S. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

MARCH 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

Financial Statement Reclassification

 

Certain account balances from prior periods have been reclassified in these consolidated financial statements to conform to current period classifications.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of these financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Foreign Exchange

 

We have consolidated the accounts of Kuvera France S.A.S. into our consolidated financial statements. The operations of Kuvera France S.A.S. were conducted in France and its functional currency is the Euro.

 

The financial statements of Kuvera France S.A.S. are prepared using their functional currency and have been translated into U.S. dollars (“USD”). Assets and liabilities are translated into USD at the applicable exchange rates at period-end. Stockholders’ equity is translated using historical exchange rates. Revenue and expenses are translated at the average exchange rates for the period. Any translation adjustments are included as foreign currency translation adjustments in accumulated other comprehensive income in our stockholders’ equity (deficit).

 

The following rates were used to translate the accounts of Kuvera France S.A.S. into USD at the following balance sheet dates.

 

  

March 31,

2021

  

March 31,

2020

 
Euro to USD   1.17260    1.10314 

 

The following rates were used to translate the accounts of Kuvera France S.A.S. into USD for the following operating periods:

 

   Year ended March 31, 
   2021   2020 
Euro to USD   1.16719    1.11122 

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially expose us to concentration of credit risk include cash, accounts receivable, and advances. We place our cash and temporary cash investments with credit quality institutions. At times, such investments may be in excess of the FDIC insurance limit of $250,000. As of March 31, 2021 and 2020, cash balances that exceeded FDIC limits were $5,140,796, and $0, respectively. We have not experienced significant losses relating to these concentrations in the past.

 

Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash

 

For purposes of reporting cash flows, we consider all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. As of March 31, 2021 and 2020, we had no cash equivalents.

INVESTVIEW, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

The following table provides a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash reported within the balance sheet that sum to the total of the same such amounts shown in the statement of cash flows.

 

  

March 31,

2021

  

March 31,

2020

 
Cash and cash equivalents  $5,389,654   $137,177 
Restricted cash, current   498,020    - 
Restricted cash, long term   774,153    - 
Total cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash shown on the statement of cash flows  $6,661,827   $137,177 

 

Amount included in restricted cash represent funds required to be held in an escrow account by a contractual agreement and will be used for paying dividends to our Series B Preferred Stockholders.

 

Receivables

 

Receivables are carried at net realizable value, representing the outstanding balance less an allowance for doubtful accounts based on a review of all outstanding amounts. Management determines the allowance for doubtful accounts by regularly evaluating individual receivables and receivables are written off when deemed uncollectible. Recoveries of receivables previously written off are recorded when received. We had no allowance for doubtful accounts as of March 31, 2021 and 2020.

 

Fixed Assets

 

Fixed assets are stated at cost and depreciated using the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives. When retired or otherwise disposed, the carrying value and accumulated depreciation of the fixed asset is removed from its respective accounts and the net difference less any amount realized from disposition, is reflected in earnings. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs which do not extend the useful lives of the related assets are expensed as incurred.

 

As of March 31, 2021 and 2020 fixed assets were made up of the following:

 

   Estimated        
   Useful        
   Life  March 31,   March 31, 
   (years)  2021   2020 
Furniture, fixtures, and equipment  10  $12,792   $12,792 
Computer equipment  3   22,528    19,533 
Data processing equipment  3   8,310,739    3,213,815 
       8,346,059    3,246,140 
Accumulated depreciation      (2,485,269)   (248,529)
Net book value     $5,860,790   $2,997,611 

 

Total depreciation expense for the years ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, was $2,256,643 and $490,642, respectively.

 

Long-Lived Assets – Cryptocurrencies, Intangible Assets & License Agreement

 

We account for our cryptocurrencies, intangible assets and long-term license agreement in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Subtopic 350-30, General Intangibles Other Than Goodwill, and ASC Subtopic 360-10-05, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets. ASC Subtopic 350-30 requires assets to be measured based on the fair value of the consideration given or the fair value of the assets (or net assets) acquired, whichever is more clearly evident and, thus, more reliably measurable. Our cryptocurrencies are deemed to have an indefinite useful life; therefore amounts are not amortized, but rather are assessed for impairment as further discussed in our impairment policy. Under ASC Subtopic 350-30 any intangible asset with a useful life is required to be amortized over that life and the useful life is to be evaluated every reporting period to determine whether events or circumstances warrant a revision to the remaining period of amortization. If the estimate of useful life is changed the remaining carrying amount of the intangible asset is amortized prospectively over the revised remaining useful life. Costs of internally developing, maintaining, or restoring intangible assets are recognized as an expense when incurred.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

We hold cryptocurrency-denominated assets and include them in our consolidated balance sheet as other assets. The value of our cryptocurrencies as of March 31, 2021 and 2020 were $4,774,478 ($4,679,256 current and $95,222 restricted long term) and $96,022, respectively. Cryptocurrencies purchased or received for payment from customers are recorded in accordance with ASC 350-30 and cryptocurrencies awarded to the Company through its mining activities ($16,201,008 and $1,745,138 for the year ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively) are accounted for in connection with the Company’s revenue recognition policy. The use of cryptocurrencies is accounted for in accordance with the first in first out method of accounting. For the year ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 we recorded realized gains on our cryptocurrency transactions of $954,667 and $112,554, respectively.

 

In June of 2017 we issued 80,000,000 shares of common stock with a value of $2,256,000 for a 15-year license agreement. Amortization recognized for the year ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, was $0 and $150,812, respectively, and the long-term license agreement was impaired during the year ended March 31, 2020, therefore was recorded at a net value of $0 and $0 as of March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

In June of 2018 we purchased United Games, LLC and United League, LLC and recorded the transaction as a business combination. Intangible assets acquired in the business combination were recorded at fair value on the date of acquisition and were being amortized on a straight-line method over their estimated useful lives. Amortization expense for the year ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 was $158,444 and $256,351, respectively, and the intangible assets were impaired during the year ended March 31, 2021. As of March 31, 2021 and 2020 intangible assets were made up of the following:

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

We have adopted ASC Subtopic 360-10, Property, Plant and Equipment. ASC 360-10 requires that long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles held and used by us be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable or when the historical cost carrying value of an asset may no longer be appropriate. Events relating to recoverability may include significant unfavorable changes in business conditions, recurring losses, or a forecasted inability to achieve break-even operating results over an extended period.

 

We evaluate the recoverability of long-lived assets based upon future net cash flows expected to result from the asset, including eventual disposition. Should impairment in value be indicated, the carrying value of intangible assets will be adjusted and an impairment loss is recorded equal to the difference between the asset’s carrying value and fair value or disposable value.

 

During the year ended March 31, 2021 we impaired computer equipment with a cost basis of $1,609, we impaired data processing equipment with a cost basis of $84,940, and we fully impaired our intangible assets with a cost basis of $991,000 due to disposals and the lack of recoverability. Effective March 31, 2020 we fully impaired data processing equipment that had a cost basis of $2,025,500, we fully impaired our long-term license agreement that had a cost basis of $2,256,000, and we impaired a portion of our intangible assets that had a cost basis of $825,000. The impairment was recorded because we deemed the assets carrying amount was not recoverable. As a result, impairment expense of $601,083 and $4,230,741 was recorded for the year ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date, based on our principal or, in the absence of a principal, most advantageous market for the specific asset or liability.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

U.S. generally accepted accounting principles provide for a three-level hierarchy of inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value, defined as follows:

 

  Level 1: Inputs that are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the entity can access.
     
  Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability, including:
    - quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets;
    - quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active;
    - inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability; and
    - inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.
     
  Level 3: Inputs that are unobservable and reflect management’s own assumptions about the inputs market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability based on the best information available in the circumstances (e.g., internally derived assumptions surrounding the timing and amount of expected cash flows).

 

Our financial instruments consist of cash, accounts receivable, and accounts payable. We have determined that the book value of our outstanding financial instruments as of March 31, 2020 and March 31, 2019, approximates the fair value due to their short-term nature.

 

Items recorded or measured at fair value on a recurring basis in the accompanying consolidated financial statements consisted of the following items as of March 31, 2021:

Sale and Leaseback

 

Through our wholly-owned subsidiary, APEX Tex, LLC, we sold high powered data processing equipment (“APEX”) to our customers and they leased the equipment back to SAFETek, LLC, another of our wholly-owned subsidiaries. We accounted for these transactions under ASC 842-40 where the leaseback has been deemed a sales-type lease due to the lease term generally covering the entire economic life of the equipment and our likelihood to purchase the asset at the end of the lease term. In accordance with ASC 842-40 we recorded the data processing equipment as a fixed asset on our balance sheet and we accounted for the amounts received for the equipment as a financial liability, in other liabilities on our balance sheet. Further, we recognized interest on the financial liability over the term of the lease to ensure the financial liability equates to the total amounts to be paid over the life of the lease. For amounts paid to us in advance of leases being signed we recorded a customer advance, which was $0 and $392,310 as of March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

MARCH 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

On June 30, 2020, we temporarily discontinued the APEX program to assess the delays, audit the transaction and determine our ability to meet the lease commitments. The assessment took place in July and August and indicated we would not be able to meet the APEX lease obligations and would be in default to the lease holders. In September, our board of directors voted to approve a buyback program wherein all APEX purchasers were offered a 48-month promissory note to ensure a 125% return of their purchase price in exchange for cancellation of the lease and our purchase of all rights and obligations under the lease. The buyback program also ensured all APEX purchasers were able to purchase a protection plan from a third-party provider, wherein each purchaser could protect their initial purchase price and obtain 50% of their APEX purchase price at five years or 100% of the APEX purchase price at ten years. As a result of the buyback program, we were able to enter into notes with third parties totaling $19,089,500 (see NOTE 6) and notes with related parties of $237,720 (see NOTE 5) in exchange for $474,155 worth of customer advances on the APEX leases and $22,889,331 of the net APEX lease liability (see table below). The exchange resulted in a gain on settlement of debt of $117,805 with related parties, recorded as contributed capital (see NOTE 9) and a gain on settlement of debt of $3,858,462 with third parties, recorded on our income statement.

Revenue Recognition

 

Subscription Revenue

 

The majority of our revenue is generated by subscription sales and payment is received at the time of purchase. We recognize subscription revenue in accordance with ASC 606-10 where revenue is measured based on a consideration specified in a contract with a customer and recognized when we satisfy the performance obligation specified in each contract. Our performance obligation is to provide services over a fixed subscription period; therefore, we recognize revenue ratably over the subscription period and deferred revenue is recorded for the portion of the subscription period subsequent to each reporting date. Additionally, we offer a 10-day trial period to first time subscription customers, during which a full refund can be requested if a customer does not wish to continue with the product. Revenues are deferred during the trial period as collection is not probable until that time has passed. Revenues are presented net of refunds, sales incentives, credits, and known and estimated credit card chargebacks. As of March 31, 2021 and 2020 our deferred revenues were $1,561,188 and $612,500, respectively.

 

Mining Revenue

 

Through our wholly owned subsidiary, SAFETek, LLC, we leased equipment under a sales-type lease through June of 2020. In June of 2020 we cancelled all leases and purchased all of the rights and obligations under the leases, which included obtaining ownership of all equipment. We use the equipment on blockchain networks to validate and add blocks of transactions to blockchain ledgers (commonly referred to as “mining”). As compensation for mining we are issued fees from processors and/or block rewards that are newly created cryptocurrency units granted to us. Our mining activities constitute our ongoing major and central operations of SAFETek, LLC. Because we do not have contracts, nor do we have customers associated with our mining revenue, we recognize revenue when fees and/or rewards are settled, or ultimately granted to us as a result of our mining activities.

 

Cryptocurrency Revenue

 

We generate revenue from the sale of cryptocurrency packages to our customers through an arrangement with third-party suppliers. The various packages include different amounts of coin with differing rates of returns and terms and, in some cases, include a product protection option that allows the purchaser to protect their initial purchase price. The protection allows the purchaser to obtain 50% of their purchase price at five years or 100% of their purchase price at ten years. Both the coin and the protection option are delivered by third-party suppliers.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

We recognize cryptocurrency revenue in accordance with ASC 606-10 where revenue is measured based on a consideration specified in a contract with a customer and recognized when we satisfy the performance obligation specified in each contract. Our performance obligation is to arrange for the third-parties to provide coin and protection (if applicable) to our customers and payment is received from our customers at the time of order placement. All customers are given two weeks to request a refund, therefore we record a customer advance on our balance sheet upon receipt of payment. After the two weeks have passed from order placement, we request our third-party suppliers to deliver coin and protection (if applicable), at which time we recognize revenue and the amounts due to our suppliers on our books. As of March 31, 2021 and 2020 our customer advances related to cryptocurrency revenue were $2,067,313 and $0, respectively.

 

Fee Revenue

 

We generate fee revenue from our customers through SAFE Management, our subsidiary licensed as a Registered Investment Advisor and Commodities Trading Advisor. We recognize fee revenue in accordance with ASC 606-10 where revenue is measured based on a consideration specified in a contract with a customer and recognized when we satisfy the performance obligation specified in each contract. Our performance obligation is to deliver fully managed trading services to individuals who do not meet the requirements of Qualified Investors and who lack the time to trade for themselves. We recognize fee revenue as our performance obligation is met and we receive payment for such advisory fees in the month following recognition.

Advertising, Selling, and Marketing Costs

 

We expense advertising, selling, and marketing costs as incurred. Advertising, selling, and marketing costs include costs of promoting our product worldwide, including promotional events. Advertising, selling, and marketing expenses for the years ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, totaled $891,198 and $1,696,133, respectively.

 

Income Taxes

 

We have adopted ASC Subtopic 740-10, Income Taxes, which requires the recognition of deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statement or tax returns. Under this method, deferred tax liabilities and assets are determined based on the difference between financial statements and tax basis of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. Temporary differences between taxable income reported for financial reporting purposes and income tax purposes consist primarily of derivative liability and stock compensation accounting versus basis differences.

Net Income (Loss) per Share

 

We follow ASC Subtopic 260-10, Earnings per Share, which specifies the computation, presentation, and disclosure requirements of earnings per share information. Basic loss per share has been calculated based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Convertible debt, stock options, and warrants have been excluded as common stock equivalents in the diluted loss per share because their effect is anti-dilutive on the computation.

 

Potentially dilutive securities excluded from the computation of basic and diluted net loss per share are as follows:

 

   March 31,
2021
   March 31,
2020
 
Options to purchase common stock   -    - 
Warrants to purchase common stock   766,585    - 
Notes convertible into common stock   548,939,163    45,743,298 
Total   549,705,748    45,743,298 

 

Lease Obligation

 

We determine if an arrangement is a lease at inception. Operating leases are included in the operating lease right-of-use asset account, the operating lease liability, current account, and the operating lease liability, long term account in our balance sheet. Right-of-use assets represent our right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent our obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease.

 

Operating lease right-of-use assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. For leases in which the rate implicit in the lease is not readily determinable, we use our incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. We have elected to not apply the recognition requirements of ASC 842 to short-term leases (leases with terms of twelve months or less). Lease terms include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option. Lease expense for operating lease arrangements is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. We have elected the practical expedient and will not separate non-lease components from lease components and will instead account for each separate lease component and non-lease component associated with the lease components as a single lease component.

 

NOTE 3 – RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In August 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 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, which simplifies the accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity, including convertible instruments and contracts on an entity’s own equity. Under current GAAP, there are five accounting models for convertible debt instruments. ASU 2020-06 removes from U.S. GAAP the separation models for (1) convertible debt with a cash conversion feature and (2) convertible instruments with a beneficial conversion feature. As a result, after adopting the ASU’s guidance, entities will not separately present in equity an embedded conversion feature in such debt. Instead, they will account for a convertible debt instrument wholly as debt, and for convertible preferred stock wholly as preferred stock (i.e., as a single unit of account), unless (1) a convertible instrument contains features that require bifurcation as a derivative under ASC 815 or (2) a convertible debt instrument was issued at a substantial premium. Additionally, for convertible debt instruments with substantial premiums accounted for as paid-in capital, the FASB decided to add disclosures about (1) the fair value amount and the level of fair value hierarchy of the entire instrument for public business entities and (2) the premium amount recorded as paid-in capital. ASU 2020-06 will be effective for public business entities that meet the definition of a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filer, excluding entities eligible to be smaller reporting companies as defined by the SEC, for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact of the adoption of this accounting pronouncement to its financial statements.

We have noted no other recently issued accounting pronouncements that we have not yet adopted that we believe are applicable or would have a material impact on our financial statements.

 

NOTE 4 – LIQUIDITY

 

Our financial statements are prepared using generally accepted accounting principles applicable to a going concern that contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. For the year ended March 31, 2020 we had incurred a significant net loss, had a working capital deficit, and had a large accumulated deficit. These conditions raised substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

During the year ended March 31, 2021 we raised $5,893,135 in cash proceeds from related parties, $1,405,300 in cash proceeds from new lending arrangements, and $1,960,325 in cash proceeds from the sale of preferred stock. Additionally, we reported $6,887,284 in cash provided by operating activities, $774,389 of income from operations, and net income of $565,793. As of March 31, 2021 we have cash of $5,389,654 and a working capital balance of $2,005,576. Further, subsequent to March 31, 2021 we received gross proceeds of $2,471,875 in connection with our Preferred Unit Offering and plan to continue to increase revenues and decrease expenses to generate income from operations. As of March 31, 2021 our unrestricted cryptocurrency balance was reported at a cost basis of $4,679,256. The fair market value of those holdings, based on the closing market price on March 31, 2021, was $5,978,597. These positive conditions and events have led management to determine that the substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern has been mitigated and alleviated.
