FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This document contains “forward-looking statements”. All statements other than statements of historical fact are “forward-looking statements” for purposes of federal and state securities laws, including, but not limited to, any projections of earnings, revenue or other financial items; any statements of the plans, strategies and objectives of management for future operations; any statements concerning proposed new services or developments; any statements regarding future economic conditions or performance; any statements or belief; and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing.

 

Forward-looking statements may include the words “may,” “could,” “estimate,” “intend,” “continue,” “believe,” “expect” or “anticipate” or other similar words. These forward-looking statements present our estimates and assumptions only as of the date of this report. Accordingly, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the dates on which they are made. We do not intend, and undertake no obligation, to update any forward-looking statement. You should, however, consult further disclosures we make in future filings of our Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K.

 

Although we believe the expectations reflected in any of our forward-looking statements are reasonable, actual results could differ materially from those projected or assumed in any of our forward-looking statements. Our future financial condition and results of operations, as well as any forward-looking statements, are subject to change and inherent risks and uncertainties. The factors impacting these risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to:

 

  - our current lack of working capital;
     
  - inability to raise additional financing;
     
  - that our accounting policies and methods are fundamental to how we report our financial condition and results of operations, and they may require our management to make estimates about matters that are inherently uncertain;
     
  - deterioration in general or regional economic conditions;
     
  - adverse state or federal legislation or regulation that increases the costs of compliance, or adverse findings by a regulator with respect to existing operations;
     
  - inability to efficiently manage our operations;
     
  - inability to achieve future sales levels or other operating results; and
     
  -

the unavailability of funds for capital expenditures.

 

- Our lack of cash due to the shutdown of operations due to the pandemic.

 

- Our late disclosure filings caused by a lack of funding due to the impact of the pandemic on our operations.

 

For a detailed description of these and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statement, please see “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in this document.

 

Throughout this Quarterly Report references to “we”, “our”, “us”, “12 ReTech”, “RETC”, “the Company”, and similar terms refer to 12 ReTech Corporation.

12 RETECH CORPORATION

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

March 31, 2021

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 - NATURE OF BUSINESS

 

12 ReTech Corporation is a holding company with subsidiaries that develop, sell, and install software that we believe enhance the shopping experience for shoppers and retailers. As a holding company, we also acquire synergistic operating companies that manufacture and sell fashion and other products to other retailers as well as selling these products online. In October 2019, we acquired retail stores in airport terminals and casinos, solidifying us as a true Omni-Channel retailer. Owning our own brick and mortar stores will allow us to deploy our cutting-edge software and Apps in the United States, to demonstrate its effectiveness at attracting shoppers and inducing them to purchase. In our own stores, we plan to test, in real time, new software products which should delight consumers and generate incremental revenues and profits for our stores. If we can show incremental revenues and profits for ourselves, we believe that other retailers may follow our example and deploy our software solutions themselves.

 

With the intended future launch of our social shopping app which is in development in 2021 (see subsequent events ), we intend to associate with other retailers on a new shopping platform that will benefit both consumers and retailers in new and exciting ways.

 

During the 4th quarter 2019 and continuing in the first quarter 2020 amid the effects of the pandemic created by COVID-19, the Company chose to consolidate its operations around three operating entities; 12 Tech, Inc., formed in Arizona on December 26, 2019 (“12 Tech”), 12 Retail Corporation, formed on September 17th, 2017 (“12 Retail”), and the 12 Fashion Group, Inc., formed on June 26, 2020.

 

12 Retail operates its own retail outlet(s) as well as those of Bluwire Group, LLC (“Bluwire”), that operates retail stores in airports (mainly in international terminals) and casinos. Because of their locations mainly in international terminals of airports, all Bluwire Company owned stores and all but one royalty store remains closed due to Covid-19. 12 Retail will also serve to demonstrate the effectiveness of the software technology created by 12 Tech in improving revenues and profits for retailers as well as providing access to other retailers through our soon to be launched social shopping app, and through our wholesale fashion business relationships.

 

12 Fashion Group, Inc., an Arizona Corporation, was formed on June 26, 2020, and operates our fashion wholesale and direct to consumer brands, including Rune NYC, Social Sunday, and Red Wire Design, as well as consolidating remaining operations from our other smaller fashion acquisitions.

 

Today, 12 Tech aims to provide technology solutions both online and inside retail brick and mortar that helps retailers acquire customers, reduce overhead expenses, streamline operations, and gain incremental revenues and profits. Existing 12 Tech solutions are deployed mainly in Asia. We are planning to deploy our solutions in the United States retail markets, which serve the world’s largest consumer economy. While we continue to operate in Asia, we have consolidated our international units, which were focused on our technology deployment (“12 Japan” and “12 Europe”), and consolidated our software development company 12 Hong Kong, Ltd (“12 HK”), under 12 Tech to further streamline our own operations.

 

As the retail environment continues to evolve, we as both retailers and technologists, will evolve with it. We believe our developed software, both current and in development, will delight consumers, provide contactless experiential shopping, and assist retailers with the recapture of their revenues as they combat the dual threats of Amazon and Walmart. Our software, once fully deployed and implemented, may provide retailers with another effective online and mobile sales channel besides their current options of Google, Amazon, and/or Facebook/Instagram.

 

As an innovative retail technology company that has been built through acquisitions and ideas, we will continue to search for additional synergistic acquisitions that bring incremental revenues and profitability and/or provide innovative software solutions.

Reverse Stock Split and increase in authorized shares

 

On October 18, 2019, the Company completed a 100-for-1 reverse common stock split reducing the outstanding common shares to 25,410,391. Upon the stock split, the Company’s authorized common shares of 8,000,000,000 did not change. The reverse split has been retroactively applied to share amounts in these consolidated financial statements. As a subsequent event, as of May 18, 2021 the authorized common stock was increased to 20,000,000,000 shares of common stock.

 

NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN

 

The Company accounts for going concern matters under the guidance of ASU 2014-15, “Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40), Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entities Ability to Continue as a” Going Concern” (“ASU 2014-15”). The guidance in ASU 2014-15 sets forth management’s responsibility to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern as well as required disclosures. ASU 2014-15 indicates that, when preparing financial statements for interim and annual financial statements, management should evaluate whether conditions or events, in the aggregate, raise substantial doubt about the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern for one year from the date the financial statements are issued or are available to be issued. This evaluation should include consideration of conditions and events that are either known or are reasonably knowable at the date the financial statements are issued or are available to be issued, as well as whether it is probable that management’s plans to address the substantial doubt will be implemented and, if so, whether it is probable that the plans will alleviate the substantial doubt.

 

These interim financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had a total accumulated deficit totaling $23,300,886 since inception, has not yet generated significant revenue from its operations, and will require additional funds to maintain our operations. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had a working capital deficit of $19,629,429. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate future profitable operations and/or obtain the necessary financing to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they become due. The Company intends to finance operating costs over the next twelve months through continued financial support from its shareholders, the issuance of debt securities and private placements of common stock. These financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

NOTE 3 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. In our opinion, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020. Notes to the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements that would substantially duplicate the disclosures contained in the audited consolidated financial statements for fiscal year 2019 have been omitted. This report should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and the footnotes thereto for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020   included in the Company’s Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 18, 2020.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries 12HK, 12JP, 12EU. 12 Retail, Rune NYC, LLC, Red Wire Group, LLC (“RWG”), Bluwire Group, LLC, Social Decay LLC dba Social Sunday (“Social Sunday”) and Emotion Fashion Group which included the brands Emotion Apparel, Inc., Lexi Luu Designs, Inc., Punkz Gear, Skipjack Dive and Dance Wear, Inc. and Cleo VII, Inc. All inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated on consolidation. We currently have no investments accounted for using the equity or cost methods of accounting.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. The estimates and judgments will also affect the reported amounts for certain revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates and assumptions reflected in these consolidated financial statements include, but are not limited to, stock-based compensation, derivate instruments, accounting for preferred stock, and the valuation of acquired assets and liabilities. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience, known trends and other market-specific or other relevant factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. On an ongoing basis, management evaluates its estimates when there are changes in circumstances, facts, and experience. Changes in estimates are recorded in the period in which they become known. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents include cash in banks, money market funds, and certificates of term deposits with maturities of less than three months from inception, which are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which, in the opinion of management, are subject to an insignificant risk of loss in value. The Company had $49,819 and $11,784 in cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

Revenue Recognition

 

Under Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Topic 606, “Revenue from Contacts with Customers” (“ASC 606”), the Company recognizes revenue when the customer obtains control of promised goods or services, in an amount that reflects the consideration which is expected to be received in exchange for those goods or services. The Company recognizes revenue following the five-step model prescribed under ASC 606: (i) identify contract(s) with a customer; (ii) identify the performance obligation(s) in the contract; (iii) determine the transaction price; (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligation(s) in the contract; and (v) recognize revenues when (or as) the Company satisfies a performance obligation.

 

The Company’s revenue consists primarily of product sales from our retail stores operating in airport terminals and casinos. Revenue for retail customers is recognized upon completion of the transaction in the point-of-sale system and satisfaction of the sale by providing the corresponding inventory at the retail location. Revenue is recognized upon transfer of control of promised products to customers, generally as risk of loss pass, in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for those products. Shipping and handling costs are expensed as incurred and are included in cost of revenue. Sales taxes collected from customers, which are subsequently remitted to governmental authorities, are excluded from revenue.

 

The Company earns ancillary revenue including royalty payments and software licensing fees.

 

Business Combinations

 

The Company accounts for all business combinations in accordance with FASB ASC 805, “Business Combinations” (“ASC 805”), using the acquisition method of accounting. Under this method, assets and liabilities, including any non-controlling interests, are recognized at fair value at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of assets acquired, net of liabilities assumed, and is recognized as goodwill. Certain adjustments to the assessed fair values of the assets, liabilities, may be made subsequent to the acquisition date, but within the measurement period, which is up to one year, are recorded as adjustments to goodwill. Any adjustments subsequent to the measurement period would be recorded as income. Results of operations of the acquired entity are included in the Company’s results from operations from the date of the acquisition onward and include amortization expense arising from acquired assets. The Company expenses all costs as incurred related to an acquisition in the consolidated statements of operations.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

The Company maintains reserves for potential credit losses on accounts receivable. Management reviews the composition of accounts receivable and analyzes historical bad debts, customer concentrations, customer credit worthiness, current economic trends and changes in customer payment patterns to evaluate the adequacy of these reserves. Reserves are recorded primarily on a specific identification basis. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company did not have an allowance for doubtful accounts.

 

Inventory

 

Inventories, consisting of a computer application, a mirror with a computer screen and touch monitor, are primarily accounted for using the first-in-first-out (“FIFO”) method and are valued at the lower of cost or market value. Inventories on hand are evaluated on an on-going basis to determine if any items are obsolete or in excess of future market needs. Items determined to be obsolete are reserved for. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, all inventory on hand is pursuant to our Bluwire (see Note 4).

 

Goodwill

 

Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price of an acquired entity over the fair value of identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination.

 

11
 

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company reviews its long-lived assets (property and equipment) for impairment whenever events or circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. If the sum of the expected cash flows, undiscounted, is less than the carrying amount of the asset, an impairment loss is recognized as the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its fair value.

 

Goodwill is tested annually at December 31 for impairment and upon the occurrence of certain events or substantive changes in circumstances.

 

As of December 31, 2020, the Company performed its annual impairment test on all reporting units and determined that each unit had indicating factors of impairment due to failure to meet respective sales projections. As a result, the Company fully impaired the intangible assets which existed as of December 31, 2020.

 

Convertible Debt and Convertible Preferred Stock

 

When the Company issues convertible debt or convertible preferred stock, it first evaluates the balance sheet classification of the convertible instrument in its entirety to determine whether the instrument should be classified as a liability under ASC 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity, and second whether the conversion feature should be accounted for separately from the host instrument. A conversion feature of a convertible debt instrument or certain convertible preferred stock would be separated from the convertible instrument and classified as a derivative liability if the conversion feature, were it a standalone instrument, meets the definition of an “embedded derivative” in ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging. Generally, characteristics that require derivative treatment include, among others, when the conversion feature is not indexed to the Company’s equity, as defined in ASC 815-40, or when it must be settled either in cash or by issuing stock that is readily convertible to cash. When a conversion feature meets the definition of an embedded derivative, it would be separated from the host instrument and classified as a derivative liability carried on the consolidated balance sheet at fair value, with any changes in its fair value recognized currently in the consolidated statements of operations.

 

If a conversion feature does not meet the conditions to be separated and accounted for as an embedded derivative liability, the Company then determines whether the conversion feature is “beneficial”. A conversion feature would be considered beneficial if the conversion feature is “in the money” when the host instrument is issued or, under certain circumstances, later. If convertible debt contains a beneficial conversion feature (“BCF”), the amount of the amount of the proceeds allocated to the BCF reduces the balance of the convertible debt, creating a discount which is amortized over the debt’s term to interest expense in the consolidated statements of operations.

 

When a convertible preferred stock contains a BCF, after allocating the proceeds to the BCF, the resulting discount is either amortized over the period beginning when the convertible preferred stock is issued up to the earliest date the conversion feature may be exercised, or if the convertible preferred stock is immediately exercisable, the discount is fully amortized at the date of issuance. The amortization is recorded similar to a dividend.

 

Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist primarily of cash, accounts receivable, inventory, prepaid expenses and other current assets, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, convertible notes payable and due to stockholders. The carrying amounts of such financial instruments approximate their respective estimated fair value due to the short-term maturities and approximate market interest rates of these 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. Assets and liabilities measured at fair value are categorized based on whether the inputs are observable in the market and the degree that the inputs are observable. Inputs refer broadly to the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, including assumptions about risk. Observable inputs are based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs reflect our own assumptions based on the best information available in the circumstances. The fair value hierarchy prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value into three broad levels, defined as follows:

 

  Level 1 Inputs are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date.

 

12
 

 

  Level 2 Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated with observable market data.
       
  Level 3 Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets and liabilities. This includes certain pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, and similar techniques that use significant unobservable inputs. Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability that reflect management’s own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability as of the reporting date.

 

The Company carries certain derivative financial instruments using inputs classified as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets. Refer to Note 11 for detail on the derivative liability.

 

Further, the Company determined that the certain notes should be measured and carried at fair value in the consolidated financial statements according to ASC 480, as they are settleable in a variable number of shares based on a fixed monetary amount known at inception.

 

Net Loss per Share

 

The Company follows ASC 260, “Earnings per Share” (“EPS”), which requires presentation of basic EPS on the face of the income statement for all entities with complex capital structures and requires a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the basic EPS computation. In the accompanying financial statements, basic earnings (loss) per share are computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. On October 18, 2019, the Company successfully completed its reverse stock split and reduced its common stock outstanding by a ratio of one hundred for one. Per ASC 505-10, if a reverse split occurs after the date of the latest reported balance sheet but before the release of the financial statements, then such changes in the capital structure must be given retroactive effect in the balance sheet. As such, the reverse split has been retroactively applied to these financial statements.

 

Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities were exercised or converted into common stock or other contracts to issue common stock resulting in the issuance of common stock that would then share in the Company’s earnings subject to anti-dilution limitations. In a period in which the Company has a net loss, all potentially dilutive securities are excluded from the computation of diluted shares outstanding as they would have an anti-dilutive impact. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, potentially dilutive common shares consist of common stock issuable upon the conversion of convertible notes payable, Series A Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock, Series D-2 Preferred Stock, Series D-3 Preferred Stock, Series D-5 Preferred Stock and Series D-6 Preferred Stock (using the if converted method). For the three months ended March 31, 2021, potentially dilutive common shares consist of common stock issuable upon the conversion of convertible notes payable, Series A Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock, Series D-2 Preferred Stock and Series D-3 Preferred Stock (using the if converted method).

 

All potentially dilutive securities were excluded from the computation of diluted weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding as they would have had an anti-dilutive impact. At March 31, 2021, if all dilutive securities were converted the Company would be in excess of their authorized shares of common stock.

 

13
 

 

Contingencies

 

The Company follows ASC 450-20, “Loss Contingencies” to report accounting for contingencies. Liabilities for loss contingencies arising from claims, assessments, litigation, fines and penalties and other sources are recorded when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the assessment can be reasonably estimated. There were no loss contingencies as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

 

Management has considered all recent accounting pronouncements issued. The Company’s management believes that these recent pronouncements will not have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

NOTE 11 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

The Company classified certain conversion features in the convertible notes and preferred stock issued as embedded derivative instruments due to the variable conversion price feature and potential adjustments to conversion prices due to events of default. These conversion features are recorded as derivative liabilities at fair value in the consolidated financial statements. These fair value estimates were measured using inputs classified as Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. The Company develops unobservable Level 3 inputs using the best information available in the circumstances, which might include its own data, or when it believes inputs based on external data better reflect the data that market participants would use, its bases its inputs on comparison with similar entities. Due to the existence of down round provisions, which create a path-dependent nature of the conversion prices of the convertible notes, the Company decided a Lattice-Based Simulation model, which incorporates inputs classified as Level 3 was appropriate.

NOTE 14 - COMMITMENTS

 

Lease Commitments

 

The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception. This determination generally depends on whether the arrangement conveys to the Company the right to control the use of an explicitly or implicitly identified fixed asset for a period of time in exchange for consideration. Control of an underlying asset is conveyed to the Company if the Company obtains the rights to direct the use of and to obtain substantially all of the economic benefits from using the underlying asset. The Company has lease agreements which include lease and non-lease components, which the Company has elected to account for as a single lease component for all classes of underlying assets. Lease expense for variable lease components are recognized when the obligation is probable.

 

Operating lease right of use (“ROU”) assets and lease liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Operating lease payments are recognized as lease expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company primarily leases buildings (real estate) which are classified as operating leases. ASC 842 requires a lessee to discount its unpaid lease payments using the interest rate implicit in the lease or, if that rate cannot be readily determined, its incremental borrowing rate. As an implicit interest rate is not readily determinable in the Company’s leases, the incremental borrowing rate is used based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments.

 

The lease term for all of the Company’s leases includes the non-cancellable period of the lease plus any additional periods covered by either a Company option to extend (or not to terminate) the lease that the Company is reasonably certain to exercise, or an option to extend (or not to terminate) the lease controlled by the lessor. Options for lease renewals have been excluded from the lease term (and lease liability) for the majority of the Company’s leases as the reasonably certain threshold is not met.

 

Lease payments included in the measurement of the lease liability are comprised of fixed payments, variable payments that depend on index or rate, and amounts probable to be payable under the exercise of the Company option to purchase the underlying asset if reasonably certain.

 

Variable lease payments not dependent on a rate or index associated with the Company’s leases are recognized when the event, activity, or circumstance in the lease agreement on which those payments are assessed as probable. Variable lease payments are presented as operating expenses in the Company’s income statement in the same line item as expense arising from fixed lease payments. As of and during the year ended December 31, 2020, management determined that there were no variable lease costs.

 

Right of Use Asset

 

In connection with the Bluwire acquisition, the Company recognized a right of use asset of $33,461. The Company used an effective borrowing rate of 13% within the calculation. The lease agreement matures in August 2021. Minimum remaining rental payments in 2021 are $33,461, respectively.

 

Operating Leases

 

The Company and its subsidiaries have various short-term leases that mature in 2020.

 

During the second and third quarters up and until the date of this filing the Company has been making post-Covid moves in closing various historically non-profitable Bluwire locations primarily Denver airport, and one location in JFK international airports, or moving this JFK location inside the terminal, redesigning its signature App for a post Covid world, and renegotiating its minimum base rental commitments for all of its retail stores. In all cases there is a rent moratorium until October 1st, 2020. For the Casino store, we did a soft opening on September 11, 2020 and then closed for a two week period in November 2019 to hire and train new staff and management. The store reopened in full on November 29, 2020 in time for Cyber Monday. Management continues to monitor the situation in our prime airport locations or Newark and Dulles airports for reopening. Base monthly rent on the Mohegan Sun store was $6,916, plus a percentage rent equal to 8% of the gross sales that exceeds $86,450 per month until January 2021. The lease expires on April 14, 2021. This lease has been renegotiated and taken over by a different subsidiary of the company that was able to fully stock the store with inventory. and management believes that it will be successful eliminating the minimum base rental feature in all of its retail locations before that date.

 

23
 

 

On August 13, 2020, the Company’s 12 Fashion Group, a division of 12 Retail Corporation, entered into a new office location under a 2-year lease with an option for a third year beginning on August 17, 2020. This new location is 1,600 square feet and caries a base monthly rent of $5,651.30 plus a pro-rated expenses for garbage and utilities of $743. Management believes that this additional space is necessary to manage the consolidation of its fashion brands.

 

Other Commitments

 

The Company has a significant contract with an independent contractor third party company which plays a critical role to the ongoing operations of the Company. The contract is for an initial period of five years for which can be cancelled upon six months’ notice and payment of all outstanding fees. The minimum monthly payment is $35,000 for which additional amounts are to be reimbursed for expenses, etc. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company paid $40,792 under the contract to which an additional $345,679 was payable as of March 31, 2021. The Company relies upon the third party for obtaining financing, targeting acquisitions, general corporate guidance, financial reporting, etc.

 

Legal & Contingencies

 

  Auctus Fund Management (“Auctus”) vs. 12 ReTech Corporation. Auctus Filed suit in August 2019 claiming breach of contract on a convertible promissory note dated April 25, 2018, which had a remaining principal balance of nearly $40,000. Auctus claimed damages totaling over $482,000. The Company had entered into a settlement agreement with Auctus that required the Company to make a cash payment of $117,000 and which was dependent on the Company receiving funding from a foreign investor. That investment did not occur, and the Company was unable to perform. Upon information and belief, management believes that Auctus will at some point re-institute that lawsuit. Management has reserved on its financial statements a sum in excess of $482,000 in regards to this claim. To the best of management’s knowledge, Auctus has not taken other actions.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULT OF OPERATIONS

 

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and related notes included elsewhere in this quarterly report. References in the following discussion and throughout this annual report to “we”, “our”, “us”, “12 ReTech Corporation”, “12 ReTech”, “RETC”, “the Company”, and similar terms refer to, 12 ReTech Corporation. unless otherwise expressly stated or the context otherwise requires. This discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. 12 ReTech Corporation actual results could differ materially from those discussed below. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, those identified below, and those discussed in the section titled “Risk Factors” included elsewhere in this filing.

 

Company

 

12 ReTech Corporation is a holding company with subsidiaries that develop, sell, and install software that we believe enhance the shopping experience for shoppers and retailers. As a holding company we also acquire synergistic operating companies that manufacture and sell fashion and other products to other retailers as well as selling these products online. In October 2019, we acquired retail stores in airport terminals and casinos solidifying us as a true Omni-Channel retailer. Owning our own brick and mortar stores will allow us to deploy our cutting-edge software and Apps in the United States, to demonstrate its effectiveness at attracting shoppers and inducing them to purchase. In our own stores, we plan to test in real time new software products which should delight consumers and generate incremental revenues and profits for our stores. If we can show incremental revenues and profits for ourselves, we believe that other retailers may follow our example and deploy our software solutions themselves.

 

With the intended future launch of our social shopping app which is in development in 2021 (see subsequent events) we intend to associate with other retailers on a new shopping platform that will benefit both consumers and retailers in new and exciting ways.

 

During the 4th quarter 2019 and continuing in the first quarter 2020, amid the effects of the pandemic created by COVID-19, the Company chose to consolidate its operations around three operating entities; 12 Tech, Inc., formed in Arizona on December 26, 2019 (“12 Tech”), 12 Retail Corporation, formed on September 17th, 2017 (“12 Retail”), and the 12 Fashion Group, Inc. (“12 Fashion”), formed on June 26, 2020.

 

12 Retail operates its own retail outlet(s) as well as those of Bluwire Group, LLC (“Bluwire”) that operates retail stores in airports (mainly in international terminals) and casinos. Because of their locations mainly in international terminals of airports, all Bluwire Company owned stores and all but one royalty store remains closed due to Covid-19. 12 Retail will also serve to demonstrate the effectiveness of the software technology created by 12 Tech in improving revenues and profits for retailers, as well as providing access to other retailers through our soon to be launched social shopping app and through our wholesale fashion business relationships.

 

12 Fashion operates our fashion wholesale and direct to consumer brands including Rune NYC, Social Sunday, and Red Wire Design, as well as consolidating remaining operations from our other smaller fashion acquisitions.

 

Today, 12 Tech aims to provide technology solutions both online and inside retail brick and mortar that helps retailers acquire customers, reduce overhead expenses, streamline operations, and gain incremental revenues and profits. Existing 12 Tech solutions are deployed mainly in Asia. We are planning to deploy our solutions in the United States retail markets, which serve the world’s largest consumer economy. While we continue to operate in Asia, we have consolidated our international units, which were focused on our technology deployment (“12 Japan” and “12 Europe”), and consolidated our software development company, 12 Hong Kong, Ltd (“12 HK”) under 12 Tech to further streamline our own operations.

12 Retail Corporation: a subsidiary of 12 ReTech Corporation Operates its own retail store (as of March 2021 as a subsequent event) and manages two main subsidiaries each of which have multiple subsidiaries; 12 Fashion Group, Inc and Bluwire Group, LLC.

 

12 Fashion Group Inc; A subsidiary of 12 retail, Inc. has the following subsidiaries;

 

On February 19, 2019 we acquired Red Wire Group, LLC. (“RWG”) a Utah Limited Liability company pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement whereby the Company exchanged and the members of RWG (the “Members”) Pursuant to the terms of the Exchange Agreement, the Company will acquire (i) 75% of the membership interests of RWG in exchange for 54,000 shares of the Corporation’s Series D-6 Preferred Stock and with a stated value of $5.00 (ii) the remaining 25% of the membership interests of RWG in exchange for 37,500 shares of the Corporation’s Series D-5 Preferred Stock with a stated value of $4.00 per share, RWG operated its own “cut & sew” operation for independent third parties to contract to produce clothes operating out of its factory in Salt Lake City, Utah.

 

As of the end of November 30, 2019, we closed the factory in Utah while 12 Fashion Group retained the customers by completing the orders in process. We were able to produce the products through 3rd party factories in New York City and Los Angeles for less than it cost us to produce the products in our own factory in Salt Lake City, Utah. On March 6, 2020, the company filed a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy filing in Phoenix, Arizona. This filing allowed us to sell the equipment we no longer needed, pay off the secured creditors, and shed all of Red Wire’s debt from our balance sheet. The bankruptcy was discharged on or about September 2020 and all debts were extinguished. 12 Fashion Group continues to service those customers acquired as well as obtaining new accounts by marketing under the d/b/a Red Wire Designs.

 

  - One March 14, 2019, we acquired Rune NYC, LLC. (“Rune”) a New York Corporation ,pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement whereby the Company exchanged with the members of Rune (the “Members”), the members of representing 92.5% of the membership interests have agreed to tender their interests to the Corporation, and the Corporation closed out the tender offer period, and the Exchange Agreement became effective. Accordingly, pursuant to the terms of the Exchange Agreement, at closing the Company acquired 92.5% of the membership interests of Rune in exchange for 82,588 shares of the Corporation’s Series D-5 Preferred Stock with a stated value of $4.00 per share. Rune’s operations continued uninterrupted in New York City following the closing and retained key employees as the leading part of 12 Fashion Group.

 

  - On November 20, 2019, Social Decay, LLC d/b/a Sunday (“Social”), a New Jersey Limited liability company, was acquired by the Company pursuant to a share exchange agreement whereby the Company exchanged the Company’s 30,000 D-6 Shares for 100% of the total outstanding equity of Social and the member of Social (the “Member”). That Member was retained by the Company, but subsequent to the year end on April 15, 2020, she resigned and as a consequence, forfeited the additional 12,000 D-6 Shares held in escrow as a performance incentive. The D-6 shares have a face value of $5.00 per share, and are convertible into the Company’s common shares. Subsequent to year end in March 2020, Social’s print factory was closed in part due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Social’s products are marketed and manufactured by the staff of 12 Fashion Group.

  - Bluwire Group, LLC. On October 1, 2019, the Company acquired the retailer with 11 airport terminal locations and one casino location under an equity exchange agreement. Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company issued to the Sellers 500,000 Series A Preferred Shares in exchange for 51% of the equity in Bluwire Group, LLC and its subsidiaries (“Bluwire”). The Sellers retained 30% of Bluwire and 19% is reserved for 12 months for potential equity investors into Bluwire. Any of that equity not used to raise capital for Bluwire over that period would be divided equally between the Company and the Sellers. No capital was raised for Bluwire Group and this 19% was issued to 12 ReTech Corporation

 

  - 12 Tech, Inc. An Arizona corporation, is a subsidiary of 12 ReTech Corporation, and has a number of subsidiaries (“12Tech”). On December 26, 2019, the Company formed 12 Tech to spearhead the Company’s software technology development and to focus more effort on the largest retail market in the world: the United States of America. The Company then closed or consolidated under 12 Tech all its other software technology companies and maintains the following subsidiaries:

 

  - 12 Hong Kong, Ltd., a corporation organized in the special economic region of Hong Kong, is a subsidiary of 12 Tech, Inc. On June 27, 2017, the Company acquired 12 Hong Kong, Ltd. in a share exchange transaction. Originally this is the Company that managed all the Company’s proprietary and licensed technology that is utilized and sold by the other subsidiaries. With the formation of 12 Tech that role is now being managed by 12 Tech. Today, 12 HK operates as a subsidiary of 12 Tech and serves as the marketing and sales hub for Asia, particularly the Chinese market and now services our customers in Japan, formerly managed by 12 Japan Ltd.

 

  - 12 Japan, LTD. Organized in Japan and is a subsidiary of 12 Tech inc. After the initial acquisition of 12 Hong Kong, LTD during 2017 and the first half of 2018, the Company made several acquisitions including 12 Japan, LTD. Subsequent to this acquisition, the Company took steps to consolidate the assets and streamline operations that effectively by the end the 3rd quarter 2019, this Company no longer functions as independent subsidiary. In the third quarter of 2019, the Company closed the offices of 12 Japan, and its flagship customer ITOYA and the revenue generated will be serviced and managed by 12 Hong Kong.

 

  - 12 Europe, A.G. 12 Europe A.G. was acquired in 2017, and underperformed. In the third quarter 2019 it was determined by management that the costs of continuing to support the expenses of an independent 12 Europe A.G., were unsupportable. Therefore, the Company reaffirmed its previous master representation agreement between 12 Hong Kong, LTD and Coppola, AG so that the software customers in Europe can continue to be supported and then closed its operations in Europe. On August 20, 2019, the Company had successfully discharged all of its debts associated with 12 Europe A.G., as part of the completion of the 12 Europe A.G., bankruptcy filing except for certain social benefit payments still owed approximately $35K by the Company. Therefore, this subsidiary is no longer in existence.

Business and Operations

 

12 ReTech Corporation is a Technology company that is creating software that management believes will create new platforms and tools for smaller retailers to compete with major companies like Amazon and Walmart and delight consumers. To better understand the entire retail environment the Company has acquired operating companies that sell direct to consumers online and in physical stores as well as to other retailers. These acquisitions, in addition to providing current revenue to the Company management believes that they will provide entree to other retailers for the sale and or licensing of our technology solutions.

 

From an operating perspective, 12 ReTech Corporation is a holding company with three main operating companies that themselves may now and/or in the future own other subsidiaries. They are: 12 Retail Corporation which now operates our casino stores and subsidiaries Bluwire Group, LLC, 12 Fashion Group, Inc, and others, and 12 Tech Inc that designed and develops our retail software.

 

The Company has earned money from four different revenue streams (in declining order): Retail Sales, Wholesale and Online sales of Fashion products, Royalty Payments for 3rd party licensing of the Bluwire name, and technology sales.

 

Effects on us of the Covid-19 Pandemic

 

2020 was an unusual year, in that at nearly the same time the entire world was in the grip of the Covid-19 pandemic with unprecedented closings of businesses, a virtual cessation of most business and personal travel, lockdown, and stay at home orders. As a Company centered on retail and which derives the most significant portion of its revenue from retail stores in airports and casinos, we were hit particularly hard. In retail, the 1st quarter of every year is the slowest revenue quarter of any year, and even before that first quarter ended, all of our retail stores were closed due to the pandemic. Only the casino store was able to be re-opened in late November 2020 to lackluster sales. Supply chains were interrupted, and it became difficult to re-stock our retail store for the holiday season which also delayed its re-opening to mid-December, after an aborted restart in September. The supply chain problems also delayed the receipt of fabric and other products needed by our Fashion Group as they began to re-emerge from under the pandemic closures. Our fashion group, being based-in NYC was closed for many months and only reopened in July to produce masks. All of the stores our fashion group would sell to were also closed. Our technology division, 12 Tech Inc, was also hard hit. Not only were retailers closed and conserving cash like we were, but it became apparent that consumers would no longer interact with public touchscreens, which was the cornerstone of our technology. In other words, our technology was made obsolete in the blink of an eye.

 

The Company managed survival during the pandemic by squirreling cash and obtaining PPP and or EIDL loans from the SBA. We attempted to retain all of our key employees utilizing these funds, but as a subsequent event, by June 2021 most have found other jobs once the PPP money ran out. This presents challenges for our airport stores re-openings, as it is a long process to get employees certified (“badged”) to work in airports. This will further slow our re-openings during 2021. We also renegotiated various leases and commitments to make us more streamlined and efficient as we re-open and expand. In Japan we renegotiated our licensing arrangement with ITOYA, whereby they managed more of the day-to-day software for a smaller fee and we eliminated virtually all of our costs there. We also learned that the App we had developed there was strongly used by Japanese consumers of ITOYA and we could re-develop it for the U.S. market. This process is well on the way and management believes will create the next great shopping platform.

Financing and Convertible Debt

 

To finance our operations, the Company has historically resorted to a number of convertible debt providers (see Note 10). These debt providers have in many cases exercised their rights to convert their debt into the Company’s common stock at a discount to market. They then sell that stock to recover their investment and profits. This has over time depressed the value of our Company’s common stock and caused a significant dilution to our shareholders. This could not be avoided, and management believes it was necessary in order to provide continuation of the Company’s business so that we could make significant acquisitions. The Company has been building revenue momentum through these acquisitions and is no longer exclusively reliant on this form of fund raising. The vast majority of the funds the Company has received over the last 4 months have been sourced through non-convertible debt incurred by our operating subsidiaries. There is, however, still a considerable amount of convertible debt that needs to be retired over the near term. Management is working closely with the convertible note holders to find less dilutive alternatives and management believes that in first half of 2021 it will arrive at a solution that will involve less dilution, may require some cash payments from other sources including an equity offering and/or debt offerings through one or more of its subsidiaries as well as leak out provisions negotiated with the convertible debt holders themselves.

 

31

 

 

The Company had also entered into a $12 million dollar Equity Line of Credit with Oasis Capital, which it has been unable to access due to some delays in the audits of one of its acquired subsidiaries. That has been resolved and Management has been in talks with Oasis on amending that original offering, so that the Company may refile the S-1 required with the SEC. The equity line of credit is ineffective at the current share price, and we will not be able to reinstitute at current share price levels.

 

In addition, Management has received tentative commitments for preferred Equity Funding that if completed would allow the Company to fully retire the convertible debt. Management, however, cautions readers that, while promising, no Equity or Debt funding can truly be counted upon until the money is in the bank. The exact amount of the final funding and timing have not been fully determined at this time.

 

However, Management believes that now that the Company has significant and growing revenue, has streamlined operations, is set to launch its software products in its own stores in the United States, and has access to more standard debt capital, that the issues associated with the convertible debt have become more manageable and therefore will be resolved more favorably to the Company than was previously observed.

 

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 and 2020

 

Revenues

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021 our revenue decreased to $137,788 from $407,788, a decrease of $270,360 or 66%, which is primarily the result of COVID 19 which forced the closure of some of stores which we have yet to reopen. We hope these locations in the near future.

 

32

 

 

Cost of revenues

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021 we incurred costs associated with the delivery of our products in the amount of $95,065, as compared to $195,392 for the comparable period in 2020. These expenses are related to costs of manufacturing goods.

 

General and Administrative

 

Our general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were $339,619, a decrease of $367,237, compared to $706,856 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This is primarily due to reduced expenses from the closed locations.

 

Professional fees

 

Our professional fees for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased by $47,673 to $144,035, compared to $191,708 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Our professional fees include expenses related to our external auditors, legal costs, and consultants.

 

Other Income and Expense

 

Our other expenses decreased by $10,912,424 to a net other income of $10,912,424 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to 10,560,398 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The majority of the increase in gain on derivative liability of $21,591,681 slightly offset a decrease in other income of $222,203.

 

There was a gain on change in derivative liability of $21,591,681 to $11,074,759 from negative $10,516,922 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. The increase in gain of derivative liability is calculated under Black Scholes model in 2021 and 2020.

 

 

As detailed in Note 3, the Company effectively closed the Bluwire Denver locations effective March 31, 2020. As a result, the debts related to Bluwire Denver, including all accounts payable and accrued expenses, were written off resulting in a gain of $211,564.

 

In addition, the Company recognized other income from Red Wire Group declaring bankruptcy on March 6, 2020, whereby all debts of the company were eliminated with some exceptions in accounts payable resulting in a gain of approximately $32,000.

 

Net Loss

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, we incurred of a net gain of $10,454,370 compared to a net loss of $11,364,894 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This decrease in net loss is primarily the result of the gain in derivative liability calculated using Black Scholes.

 

The Company is expending working capital to further their business plan. This includes the further development, refinement, and improvement of their software and its adaptation to various European languages and geography. The Company is also expending working capital on the development of new technology which is designed to further enhance the attractiveness of their offerings to their target customer base in the new post Covid-19 contactless environment.

Consolidation of Operations

 

In order to achieve cost synergies, the Company continues to take steps to reduce and eliminate redundant and unnecessary costs in its operations. Management recently created the 12 Fashion Group division of 12 Retail to house and operate its fashion brand operations. The operations of Rune NYC, Red Wire Group, and Social Sunday were combined, and steps were taken to reduce expenses while still working to expand the business.

 

Management’s recent decision in the 1st quarter of 2020 to outsource Red Wire Group’s manufacturing operations to qualified third parties has increased the potential for profitability of the 12 Fashion Group’s DIFY (“Do it For You”) apparel design and apparel manufacturing Today, we no longer operate our own factory but still service existing customers and recruit new customers. As a result, we have cut expenses dramatically and no longer have a manufacturing factory’s expenses such as payroll and rent. We have increased the customer base and conduct our business providing design and project management services to our client base. We have also decided to put the Red Wire Group into bankruptcy protection which will eventually allow us to eliminate the debts of the former operation. This may result in future gains in net income as well as allowing the successor business to operate with a cost structure that does not need to scale up with operational expansion and potentially earn a profit.

 

During the transition, Red Wire Group had a number of customer projects where they had taken deposits (typically 50% of total project revenues) and could not finish the project in its own factory. 12 Fashion Group found manufacturing partners who were willing to finish each and every unfinished project. The completed projects were to be invoiced for the remainder of the balances due and the resultant payments would be used to pay the manufacturing partners for their services. Some of these projects still remain unfinished at the time of the filing this report due to the government mandated closures. Through our efforts and good communication most of these customer relationships were salvaged, and we can expect that 12 Fashion Group will continue to receive business from these former customers of Red Wire Group.

 

This salvage operation allowed the Company to recognize revenues and expenses as it would have done if Red Wire Group had completed their projects on their own. However, there was a negative cash flow effect as all the resultant collected accounts receivables generated by these projects went out to pay the manufacturing partners. Management expects this to negatively affect gross margins for the Company in the upcoming financial reports of the 1st quarter of 2021. Going forward in the second half of 2021, Management expects gross margins to return to levels of between 30% and 40% for the 12 Fashion Group business.

 

Social Sunday’s operations are also being restructured. Management has taken steps to reduce cash outflows while it makes a decision regarding the future of the Social Sunday operation. In the meantime, this business has been stood still and it may be that we will use the bankruptcy laws to eliminate the debts.

 

Rune’s business has also been consolidated into the 12 Fashion Group Division with Rune’s President, Emily Santamore, installed as President for the 12 Fashion Group’s operation. Rune’s business continues to service existing clients and recruit new clients. It is Management’s strategy that the improved cost structures of the 12 Fashion Group will allow the business to grow and generate profits over the next 12 months and beyond.

 

Beginning in early March 2020, the apparel business of 12 Fashion Group was affected by the business shutdowns of geographies in the USA related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Manufacturing partners had to shut down their operations unless they were producing products such as face masks or hospital gowns that were deemed essential to the fight against this infectious disease. As such, 12 Fashion Group and select manufacturing partners got into the face mask business. So far, this business has produced quantities of product and revenues that are approximately a third of what management would consider normal business activity levels. Management does not expect business activities of the fashion industry to return to normal levels until the following year.

 

In another consolidation of operations and expenses, Management partially consolidated the operations of 12 Japan into 12 Hong Kong. In so doing, we are eliminating much of the overhead expenses of one of the Asian operations while retaining the ability to service our existing customer base. As a subsequent event, we have also received 2 million yen ($18,000) from the government of Japan as a grant which management plans to use to try to expand our business in Japan.

Bluwire Group, which provided the bulk of the revenue growth of the 4th quarter of 2019, has also been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. On or about March 16, 2020, every one of the Bluwire stores was shut down by local government mandate. Stores were shuttered and our staff was laid off. We are staying in close communication with our landlords and the various airport authorities where we have stores located. At this point, Management still does not have a timeline for the reopening of these business operations. This shutdown has negatively impacted the Company’s revenues and cash flow. As a subsequent event, we have applied for and received CARES Act Payment Protection Program funding and EIDL for some of the stores. These funds will help Bluwire get back on its feet when the airport and casino stores are allowed to reopen. Management predicts that it will likely be the following year before airport traffic levels get back to normal if not longer. We are currently expecting to report large negative impacts to the Bluwire business in terms of revenues for the balance of this year.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company has met its current capital requirements primarily through the issuance of debt-equity and preferred stock. Management views the working capital that is raised through debt-equity or preferred equity offerings as being equivalent to raising working capital via common equity subscriptions, but with the added bonus of allowing the common equity value to rise through the passage of time and simultaneous achievement of the Company’s business goals. Any conversion of debt into equity could occur at a higher equity valuation than the Company currently has. The Company has reserved the right to repurchase these debt-equity interests and preferred stock at a predetermined premium should management determine that this is in the best interests of shareholders at an appropriate future point in time.

 

Operating expenses for the Company have been paid from revenue as well as from the issuance of debt-equity and preferred stock subscriptions. At March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had a deficit in working capital (current liabilities in excess of current assets) of $19,629,429 and $31,490,395, respectively. The decrease in working capital deficit was principally due to a decrease in derivative liabilities. A portion of this working capital deficit has been financed loans from stockholders. As of March 31, 2021, amounts owed to stockholders totaled $389,166.

 

The Company has financed our cash flow requirements through the issuance of debt-equity and preferred stock. As the Company expands, we may continue to experience net negative cash flows from operations, pending generation of significant revenues. Additionally, we anticipate obtaining additional financing to fund operations through debt-equity and preferred stock offerings to the extent available or to obtain additional financing to the extent necessary to augment our working capital balances.

 

Management believes that our acquisition strategy will successfully provide significant revenues, potential profits as well as access to traditional bank and asset-based credit lines. In addition, Management believes that existing shareholders, lenders, and prospective new investors will provide the additional cash needed to meet our obligations as they become due.

 

In connection with the acquisition of Bluwire Group, LLC, on October 3, 2019, one of the Sellers of Bluwire provided $300,000 capital contribution to Bluwire. This obligation is not convertible into Company stock under any terms. This capital contribution to Bluwire has not been adequately documented. In Addition, on October 15, 2019, the Company’s Bluwire subsidiary entered into a future receivable purchase agreement with Libertas Funding and received $343,000. This agreement provides for payment over 8 months and carries a fee of $7,000. This obligation is not convertible under any terms into Company stock. Lastly, on November 5, 2019, the Company’s Rune subsidiary entered into a future receivables purchase agreement with Vox Funding and received gross proceeds for $145,500 which were used in part to retire a previous and smaller obligation to Vox Funding. The Agreement provided for payment over 6 months and carries a fee of $4,500. This obligation is not convertible under any terms into Company Stock. After the March 16, 2020 Covid shut down, all payment ceased by verbal mutual agreement. In May 2021, the Company entered into a verbal agreement with Vox to repay $250 per week and all collection efforts are put on hold and forbearance on other receivable holders.

 

On March 18, 2020, the Company entered into a back end promissory note agreement with Adar Alef, LLC (“Adar”) for loans totaling $33,600. The consideration to the Company was $30,000 with $3,600 of legal fees. As a subsequent event, on March 25, 2020, the Company entered into a back end promissory note agreement with LG Capital, LLC (“LG”) for loans totaling $33,600. The consideration to the Company was $30,000 with $3,600 of legal fees. The note is convertible after 181 days at a (i) $0.0075 ceiling or (ii) 60% of the lowest trading price over the past twenty trading days prior to the conversion date.

 

On March 5, 2020, the Company’s Bluwire subsidiary entered into a second future receivable purchase agreement with Reliant Funding and received $83,000. This agreement provides for payment over 6 months and carries a fee of $3,000. This obligation is not convertible under any terms into Company stock. This agreement has been in forbearance since April 2021, and the Company pays $10 per week until Bluwire Newark is re-opened.

 

In the future we will need to generate sufficient revenues from operations in order to eliminate or reduce the need to sell additional stock or obtain additional loans. However, there can be no assurance we will be successful in raising the necessary funds to execute our high growth business plan.

 

At March 31, 2021, cash and cash equivalents was $49,819 compared to $11,784 at December 31, 2020.

 

It is likely that the Company will need to obtain additional working capital through debt-equity and preferred stock capital raises until the Company can generate sufficiently profitable revenues to sustain the cash burn rate that the Company’s business plan calls for.

 

35

 

 

Although our business plan calls for high growth, we anticipate that we may continue to incur operating losses during the next twelve months. Our prospects must be considered in light of the risks, expenses, and difficulties frequently encountered by companies at our stage, particularly companies in new and rapidly evolving markets. Our roll up acquisition strategy seeks to mitigate some of those risks, but until more acquisitions can be completed, consolidated, and we reap the benefits of consolidation, we cannot accurately include their results in our projection of cash needs.

 

Risks include, but are not limited to, an evolving and unpredictable business model and the management of growth and the consummation and assimilation of multiple acquisitions. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. To address these risks, we must, among other things, increase our customer base, implement and successfully execute our business and marketing strategy, respond to competitive developments, and attract, retain and motivate qualified personnel. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in addressing such risks, and the failure to do so can have a material adverse effect on our business prospects, financial condition, and results of operations.

 

Impact of COVID-19

 

Like most other business in the United States, our businesses have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic. While the first quarter of any calendar year is historically the slowest quarter of the year for revenues for our main operating subsidiaries, the first quarter of 2020 was severely impacted by US Government’s business shutdowns and stay at home orders related to COVID-19. We derive most of our revenue from our 12 Retail Corporation which is itself composed of two Operating units: 12 Fashion Group and Bluwire Group, LLC.

 

In response to the President’s “stay at home orders” on March 16, 2020, we promptly laid off almost all of our 12 Fashion Group employees and contractors. 12 Fashion Group retained three employee/contractors and focused on producing and selling of washable reusable masks, both wholesale and direct to consumer online.

 

Our Bluwire retail stores in Newark airport, Dulles airport, and JFK international airport were temporarily closed on or about March 17, 2020. Our Casino location was temporarily closed on or about March 17, 2020 when the Mohegan Sun Casino itself was closed. We laid off all of our Bluwire employee/contractors except for two members of the headquarters staff who continued to source innovative products for our stores when they re-open, some of which will be uniquely desired by consumers due to changing buying habits due to COVID-19. We have since accepted the resignation of all of the employees and contractors of our casino store and have rebuilt the team in anticipation of future store operations. The financial effects of these closures are reflected in the Management Discussion and Analysis.

 

The Cares Act and the Payroll Protection Program SBA Loans (PPP Loans)

 

As a subsequent event, the Company has applied for PPP Loans for all of its U.S. operating Companies, and is in the process of analyzing if it would qualify for similar governmental assistance for its reduced operating unit in Japan (12 Japan Ltd). The Company has qualified for an aggregate of $294,882 of PPP Loans for its operating companies. These funds are being used to re-hire previously laid off personnel where appropriate and hire new personal that management believes better fits the post COVID-19 shut down environment. The Company is hiring personnel that will help the operating units generate revenues in a more contactless environment and to create changes to our cutting-edge retail software to help our stores and well as other retailers attract consumers in this new environment. The Cares Act provides very favorable terms for the repayment or forgiveness of the monies lent to qualifying businesses like ours. While the final rules are not yet formalized, the initial guidelines allow for complete forgiveness for monies spent on approved expenses such as payroll and labor with non- approved expenses to be paid back over 2 years at 1% annual interest with no payments for the first 6 months after receipt. No collateral was pledged for these loans and management did not have to sign any personal guarantees. Management will make every effort to utilize these PPP loan funds in a manner that may allow for complete forgiveness of the loan(s) while providing the best opportunity for the continuity and growth of the business.

 

During the COVID-19 shutdown period, management sourced new products and vendors for its businesses and is now optimistic that it will shortly obtain additional funding of debt or preferred equity to grow our business.

Reliance on the SEC’s March 25, 2019 order regarding extension of filing deadlines due to COVID-19

 

As a direct result of the COVID-19 shutdowns and travel restrictions, the SEC provided for any public company impacted by COVID-19 to extend its filing of its 10-K or 10-Q or other required filings for 45 additional days and would still be eligible for the further normal extensions of 15 and 5 days respectively. As noted herein, we have been extremely impacted on an operational level, delayed in obtaining information from our foreign subsidiaries in Hong Kong and Japan, as well as being delayed in our ability to obtain capital for the professional fees to complete our filings, and further compromised by the fact that our CEO and CFO are both restricted from travel to the United States at this time as they are in Hong Kong and Japan respectively. Therefore, we filed for a 45 day and 15-day NT10–KA Filing extensions in reliance on the March 25, 2020, order and have further been in communication with the SEC for additional consideration for timely filing under these extraordinary circumstances.

 

However, due to cash restraints with all of our closed operations, the Company was unable to meet any deadline to complete this audit and the quarterly reports (forms 10-Q) in a timely fashion during 2020 and the first quarter 2021. The Company retained auditor BF Borgers on April 28, 2021, and will complete all delinquent filings in the second quarter 2021. With our businesses reopening and revenues being generated, Management believes that it can continue to make timely filings in the future.

 

Going Concern

 

The Company’s financial statements are prepared using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) applicable to a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. Since the Company has not generated significant revenue or gross profits adequate to cover operating costs, has negative cash flows from operations, and negative working capital, the Company has included a reference to the substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern in connection with our consolidated financial statements for the period ended March 31, 2021. Our total accumulated deficit as of March 31, 2021 was approximately $24 million.

 

The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company obtaining adequate capital to fund operating losses until it establishes a revenue stream and becomes profitable. Management’s plans to continue as a going concern include raising additional capital through sales of equity securities and borrowing. However, management cannot provide any assurances that the Company will be successful in accomplishing any of its plans. If the Company is not able to obtain the necessary additional financing on a timely basis, the Company will be required to delay, reduce the scope of or eliminate one or more of the Company’s research and development activities or commercialization efforts or perhaps even cease the operation of its business. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to successfully secure other sources of financing and attain profitable operations. There is substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern for one year from the issuance of the accompanying consolidated financial statements. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

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, and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We use assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Future events, however, may differ markedly from our current expectations and assumptions. We believe there have been no significant changes in accounting policies for the period ended March 31, 2020. See Note 3 to the consolidated statements in this Quarterly Report for a complete discussion of our significant accounting policies and estimates.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

The Company has reviewed all recently issued, but not yet adopted, accounting standards in order to determine their effects, if any, on its consolidated results of operation, financial position or cash flows. Based on that review, the Company believes that none of these pronouncements will have a significant effect on its consolidated financial statements. See Note 3 to the consolidated statements in our 2019 Annual Report for a complete discussion of our significant accounting policies and estimates.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Transactions

 

At March 31, 2021, the Company did not have any transactions, obligations or relationships that could be considered off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosure About Market Risk

 

As a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide the information required by this Item 3.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our Management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Accounting Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Accounting Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures, as of March 31, 2021 were not effective such that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Exchange Act is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Accounting Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure. A control system cannot provide absolute assurance, however, that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.

 

Management’s Quarterly Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act). Our internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes.

 

In connection with our completed acquisitions of significant operating companies during the first three quarters of 2019, Management has begun to institute some financial controls. The first area management is improving is cash and expense payment controls. Management has implemented a segregation of duties and authorities in this area:

 

  1. Revenues are deposited in 98% of all cases electronically whether by our credit card processors or factors.
     
  2. The accounting department does not make any direct payments and all invoices are approved by the management of the operating companies, reviewed by the accounting department and representatives of senior management.
     
  3. Weekly, the managers of each operating company reviews with representatives of senior management which payments are to be made from the accounts payable listing.
     
  4. The payments are then made by a third-party payments person directed by senior management and recorded by the accounting department. Payments are mostly made by check, or automatic bill payment from the bank.
     
  5. The accounting department then verifies and reports to senior management that the payments were made as approved by serious management.
     
  6. Future improvements as the accounting staff will grow will be to segregate posting of entries from the person who can make journal entries.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives.

 

Our management, with the participation of the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 202019. In making this assessment, our management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) in Internal Control – Integrated Framework. Based on the criteria established by COSO, management concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of March 31, 2020 as a result of the identification of the material weaknesses described below.

 

Specifically, management identified the following control deficiencies: (1) The Company has not properly segregated duties as two or three individuals initiate, authorize, and complete all transactions. The Company has not implemented measures that would prevent the individuals from overriding the internal control system; (2) insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both US GAAP and SEC guidelines and (3) the Company has installed accounting software that does not prevent erroneous or unauthorized changes to previous reporting periods and does not provide an adequate audit trail of entries made in the accounting software.

 

Our Company plans to take steps to enhance and improve the design of our internal controls over financial reporting. During the period covered by this annual report on Form 10-K, we have not been able to remediate the material weaknesses identified above. To remediate such weaknesses, we plan to implement the following changes during our fiscal year ending December 31, 2020: (i) adopt sufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting, (ii) complete the implementation of QuickBooks Enterprise solution for consistent recording and accounting of all transactions across all business groups started in 2019. The remediation efforts set out are largely dependent upon our securing additional financing to cover the costs of implementing the changes required. If we are unsuccessful in securing such funds, remediation efforts may be adversely affected in a material manner.

 

Accordingly, while the Company has identified certain material weakness in its system of internal control over financial reporting, it believes that is has taken reasonable steps to ascertain that the financial information contained in this report is in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Management has determined that current resources would be appropriately applied elsewhere and when resources permit, they will alleviate material weaknesses through various steps.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

As of March 31, 2021, there were no changes in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting known to the Chief Executive Officer or the Chief Accounting Officer that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

PART II

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

During the ordinary course of business, and as a result of quickly completing multiple acquisitions and the business disruption due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Company has become involved in some litigation, has some disputed claims and possible contingencies as follows:

 

Claims and Litigation:

 

  Auctus Fund Management (“Auctus”) vs. 12 ReTech Corporation. Auctus Filed suit in August 2019 claiming breach of contract on a convertible promissory note dated April 25, 2018, which had a remaining principal balance of nearly $40,000. Auctus claimed damages totaling over $482,000. The Company had entered into a settlement agreement with Auctus that required the Company to make a cash payment of $117,000 and which was dependent on the Company receiving funding from a foreign investor. That investment did not occur, and the Company was unable to perform. Upon information and belief, management believes that Auctus will at some point re-institute that lawsuit. Management has reserved on its financial statements a sum in excess of $482,000 in regards to this claim. To the best of management’s knowledge, Auctus has not taken other actions.

 

  Bellridge Capital, LP, one of the Company’s convertible debt providers has sued the Company for non-performance and has obtained a default judgment in the amount of $214,195.74 in the southern district of New York. The Company maintains that service of process is defective, and the Company will also assert lack of jurisdiction if any collection effort is ever undertaken among other potential legal cleans and defenses

 

  J&S properties sued the Company in regards to a lease for a subsidiary in the State of Utah that was never guaranteed by the Company, and obtained a default judgement in Salt Lake County. The Company maintains that it was never properly served and has, it believes, substantial defenses that it will raise should J&S properties ever try to enforce the judgment.

 

  RedWire Group, LLC (“RedWire Group”) filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11 subsection V on March 6, 2020, and the case in ongoing. The Company has funded the initial costs, as well as some ongoing storage costs for RedWire Group equipment. The Company plans to liquidate the equipment and some other assets to pay creditors. This Chapter 11 was converted by the Court to a Chapter 7 and discharged. The equipment was liquidated in 2021, and the Bank (Bank of American Fork) has been paid in full and all other debts have been discharged.

 

  Leider Enterprises, Inc. D/b/a SM Distribution Inc a Florida corporation sued Bluwire Sun, LLC in Florida. Bluwire Sun never received any product from this company and is defending this lawsuit in Florida.

 

40

 

 

  Rottenberg, Meril, Solomon, Bertiger & Guttilla (“Rottenberg”) sued the Company in Bergen County New Jersey and obtained a default judgement because the Company was never served. The Company believes it has substantial counterclaims and defenses should Rottenberg ever tries to enforce this judgement.

 

  PCG Advisory Group (PSG) obtained a default judgement of $63,350 in New York because, we believe, it never properly served the Company and has tried to domesticate that judgement in Arizona. The Arizona Court refused to domesticate the judgment and has given PSG some time to prove proper service. That period has expired.

 

  VXB & Orfwid d/b/a Lost + Wander sued the Company’s Social Decay d/b/a Social Sunday subsidiary and also named the Company for invoices. The Company never guaranteed obligations for Social Sunday and intends to vigorously defend this lawsuit as meritless.

 

  Tessco Technologies v Bluwire filed suit in Maryland. The Company has not been properly served, and if served would dispute jurisdiction as well as other defenses on behalf of its Bluwire subsidiary.

 

  George Sharpe, in May 2021, sued the Company in Nevada to try to obtain custodianship of the Company. This was defeated and the Company will be filing for attorney fees, although there are no guarantees the court will award us our attorney fees or other outcomes.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

The Company’s investors should consider the risks that could affect its business as set forth in Item 1A, Risk Factors, of its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

The effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting

 

The Company has a limited number of personnel which may lead to a risk limited controls and procedures. As a result of the aforementioned reason, there is a limit on the amount of internal controls during our financial reporting process.

 

The Company’s Chief Financial Officer is currently the Chief Financial Officer of another company

 

The Company Chief Financial Officer is also the Chief Financial Officer of another business and therefore may have limited time to work on the business and may experience time conflicts.

 

Our directors may lack of an independent director on your Board of Directors

 

Our directors are also on our Board of Directors and as a result the Board of Directors may lack some independence.

 

The Chief Executive Officer and the ability to control the Company

 

The Company’s Chief Executive Officer is also one of the most significant shareholders of the Company and as a result may control the Company.

 

Small customer base makes us dependent on a few customers

 

The Company currently has a small base of customers from which it derives its revenue. This could adversely affect the Company as it is dependent on a few customers for its current revenue.

 

There are a number of shares of common stock underlying the outstanding preferred stock and convertible notes

 

The Company has outstanding preferred stock and convertible notes which are potentially convertible into common stock. Should all of these convertible instrument convert into common stock, the number of common shares issued would lead to substantial dilution of the current common shareholders.

 

Although we have attempted to discuss meaningful factors, our investors need to be aware that other factors and risks may become important in the future. New risks may emerge at any time. We cannot predict such risks or estimate the extent to which they may affect our operations and financial performance. Investors should carefully consider the discussion of risks and the other information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including the Cautionary Information Regarding Forward-Looking Information provided above in Part I, Item 2, Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
