THE 4LESS GROUP, INC.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 – NATURE OF BUSINESS AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Business:

 

Nature of Business – The 4LESS Group, Inc., (the “Company”), was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on December 5, 2007. The Company, under the name MedCareers Group, Inc. (“MCGI”) formally operated a website for nurses, nursing schools and nurses’ organizations designed for better communication between nurses and the nursing profession.

 

On November 29, 2018, the Company entered into a transaction (the “Share Exchange”), pursuant to which the Company acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding equity securities of The 4LESS Corp. (“4LESS”), in exchange for the issuance of (i) nineteen thousand (19,000) shares of Series B Preferred Stock, (ii) six thousand seven hundred fifty (6,750) shares of Series C Preferred Stock, and (iii) 870 shares of Series D Preferred Stock. The Series C Preferred Shares have a right to convert into common stock of the Company by multiplying the number of issued and outstanding shares of common stock by 2.63 on the conversion date. The Share Exchange closed on November 29, 2018.  As a result of the Share Exchange, the former shareholders of 4LESS became the controlling shareholders of the Company. The Share Exchange was accounted for as a reverse takeover/recapitalization effected by a share exchange, wherein 4LESS is considered the acquirer for accounting and financial reporting purposes. The capital, share price, and earnings per share amount in these consolidated financial statements for the period prior to the reverse merger were restated to reflect the recapitalization in accordance with the shares issued as a result of the reverse merger except otherwise noted.

 

4LESS was formed as Vegas Suspension & Offroad, LLC on October 24, 2013 as a Nevada limited liability company and converted to a Nevada corporation with the same name on May 8, 2017. On April 2, 2018, the Company changed its name to The 4LESS Corp. The Corporation had S Corporation status. The Corporation operates as an e-commerce auto and truck parts sales company. As a result of the share exchange, the 4LESS Group, Inc. is now a holding company operating through 4LESS and offers products including exhaust systems, suspension systems, wheels, tires, stereo systems, truck bed covers, and shocks. On December 30, 2019 4LESS changed its name to Auto Parts 4Less, Inc.

 

Significant Accounting Policies:

 

The Company’s management selects accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and adopts methods for their application. The application of accounting principles requires the estimating, matching and timing of revenue and expense. The accounting policies used conform to generally accepted accounting principles which have been consistently applied in the preparation of these condensed financial statements.

 

Basis of Presentation:

 

The Company prepares its financial statements on the accrual basis of accounting in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim unaudited consolidated financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for complete consolidated financial statements. Certain information and footnote disclosure normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been omitted pursuant to instructions, rules, and regulations prescribed by the SEC. The unaudited consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements of the Company for the year ended January 31, 2021 and notes thereto contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on May 14, 2021.

 

Principles of Consolidation:

 

The condensed financial statements include the accounts of The 4LESS Group, Inc. as well as The Auto Parts 4Less, Inc., and JBJ Wholesale LLC. All significant inter-company transactions have been eliminated. All amounts are presented in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise stated.

In order to prepare financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, management must make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and determine whether contingent assets and liabilities, if any, are disclosed in the financial statements. The ultimate resolution of issues requiring these estimates and assumptions could differ significantly from resolution currently anticipated by management and on which the financial statements are based.  The most significant estimates included in these consolidated financial statements are those associated with the assumptions used to value derivative liabilities.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain amounts in the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements for prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. These reclassifications have not changed the results of operations of prior periods.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents:

 

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. At times, cash balances may be in excess of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) insurance limits. The carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents approximates fair market value.

 

Inventory Valuation

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Inventories are valued on a first-in, first-out (FIFO) basis. Inventory is comprised of finished goods.

 

Concentrations

 

Cost of Goods Sold

 

For the three months ended April 30, 2021 the Company purchased approximately 54% of its inventory and items available for sale from third parties from three vendors. As of April 30, 2021, the net amount due to the vendors included in accounts payable was $462,991. For the three months ended April 30, 2020, the Company purchased from three vendors approximately 53% of its inventory and items available for sale from third parties. As of April 30, 2020, the net amount due to these vendors included in accounts payable was $434,528. The Company believes there are numerous other suppliers that could be substituted should a supplier become unavailable or non-competitive.

 

Leases

 

We adopted ASU No. 2016-02—Leases (Topic 842), as amended, as of February 1, 2019, using the full retrospective approach. The full retrospective approach provides a method for recording existing leases at adoption and in comparative periods. In addition, we elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard, which among other things, allowed us to carry forward the historical lease classification.

 

In addition, we elected the hindsight practical expedient to determine the lease term for existing leases. Our election of the hindsight practical expedient resulted in the shortening of lease terms for certain existing leases and the useful lives of corresponding leasehold improvements. In our application of hindsight, we evaluated the performance of the leased stores and the associated markets in relation to our overall real estate strategies, which resulted in the determination that most renewal options would not be reasonably certain in determining the expected lease term.

 

Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of additional net lease assets and lease liabilities of $454,087 and $454,087 respectively, as of February 1, 2019. The standard did not materially impact our consolidated net earnings, retained earnings and had no impact on cash flows.

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized when items of income and expense are recognized in the financial statements in different periods than when recognized in the tax return. Deferred tax assets arise when expenses are recognized in the financial statements before the tax returns or when income items are recognized in the tax return prior to the financial statements. Deferred tax assets also arise when operating losses or tax credits are available to offset tax payments due in future years. Deferred tax liabilities arise when income items are recognized in the financial statements before the tax returns or when expenses are recognized in the tax return prior to the financial statements. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Act”) was signed into law. ASC 740, Accounting for Income Taxes requires companies to recognize the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on deferred tax assets and liabilities and the retroactive effects of changes in tax laws in the period in which the new legislation is enacted. The Company’s gross deferred tax assets were revalued based on the reduction in the federal statutory tax rate from 35% to 21%. A corresponding offset has been made to the valuation allowance, and any potential other taxes arising due to the Tax Act will result in reductions to the Company’s net operating loss carryforward and valuation allowance. The Company will continue to analyze the Tax Act to assess its full effects on the Company’s financial results, including disclosures, for the Company’s fiscal year ending January 31, 2022, but the Company does not expect the Tax Act to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments:

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash, accounts payable, advances and notes payable. The Company considers the carrying value of such amounts in the financial statements to approximate their fair value due to the short-term nature of these financial instruments. Derivatives are recorded at fair value at each period end. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the reporting date.

 

The ASC guidance for fair value measurements and disclosure establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:

 

Level 1 Inputs – Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.

 

Level 2 Inputs – Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model-derived valuations whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable.

 

Level 3 Inputs – Instruments with primarily unobservable value drivers.

 

The following table sets forth, by level within the fair value hierarchy, the Company’s financial liabilities that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis as of April 30, 2021:

Related Party Transactions:

 

The Company has a verbal policy that includes procedures intended to ensure compliance with the related party provisions in common practice for public companies. For purposes of the policy, a “related party transaction” is a transaction in which the Company or any one of its subsidiaries participates and in which a related party has a direct or indirect material interest, other than ordinary course, arms-length transactions of less than 1% of the revenue of the counterparty. Any transaction exceeding the 1% threshold, and any transaction involving consulting, financial advisory, legal or accounting services that could impair a director’s independence, must be approved by the CEO. Any related party transaction in which an executive officer or a Director has a personal interest, or which could present a possible conflict under the Guide to Ethical Conduct, must be approved by Board of Directors, following appropriate disclosure of all material aspects of the transaction.

 

Derivative Liability

 

The derivative liabilities are valued as a level 3 input under the fair value hierarchy for valuing financial instruments. The derivatives arise from convertible debt where the debt and accrued interest is convertible into common stock at variable conversion prices and reclassification of equity instrument to liability due to insufficient shares for issuance. As the price of the common stock varies, it triggers a gain or loss based upon the discount to market assuming the debt was converted at the balance sheet date. When evaluating the effect of the issuance of new equity-linked or equity-settled instruments on previously issued instruments, the Company uses first-in, first-out method (“FIFO”) where authorized and unused shares would first be used to satisfy the earliest issued equity-linked instruments.

 

The fair value of the derivative liability is determined using a lattice model, is re-measured on the Company’s reporting dates, and is affected by changes in inputs to that model including our stock price, historical stock price volatility, the expected term, and both high risk and the risk-free interest rate. The most sensitive inputs to the model are for expected time for the holder to convert or be repaid and the estimated historical volatility of the Company’s common stock.  However, because the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock is so high (see Note 10), the sensitivity required to change the liability by 1% as of April 30, 2021 is greater than 25% change in historical volatility as of that date.  The other inputs, such as risk free rate, high yield cash rate and stock price all have a sensitivity for a 1% change in the input variable results in a significantly less than 1% change in the calculated derivative liability.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue under ASC 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The core principle of the revenue standard is that a company should recognize revenue when control is transferred over the promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company only applies the five-step model to contracts when it is probable that the Company will collect the consideration it is entitled to in exchange for the goods and services transferred to the customer. The following five steps are applied to achieve that core principle:

 

Step 1: Identify the contract with the customer

Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract

Step 3: Determine the transaction price

Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract

Step 5: Recognize revenue when the company satisfies a performance obligation

 

Because the Company’s sales agreements generally have an expected duration of one year or less, the Company has elected the practical expedient in ASC 606-10-50-14(a) to not disclose information about its remaining performance obligations.

The Company’s performance obligations are satisfied at the point in time when products are received by the customer, which is when the customer has title and obtained the significant risks and rewards of ownership. Therefore, the Company’s contracts have a single performance obligation (shipment of product). The Company primarily receives fixed consideration for sales of product. Shipping and handling amounts paid by customers are primarily for online orders, and are included in revenue. Sales tax and other similar taxes are excluded from revenue.

 

Stock-Based Compensation:

 

The Company accounts for stock options at fair value. The Company estimates the fair value of each stock option at the grant date by using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model and provides for expense recognition over the service period, if any, of the stock option.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Common Share:

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS give effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock using the if-converted method. In computing diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used to determine the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options and/or warrants. Diluted EPS excluded all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

 

Basic loss per common share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. Diluted loss per share is computed in a manner similar to the basic loss per share, except the weighted-average number of shares outstanding is increased to include all common shares, including those with the potential to be issued by virtue of convertible debt and other such convertible instruments. Diluted loss per share contemplates a complete conversion to common shares of all convertible instruments only if they are dilutive in nature with regards to earnings per share.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards:

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350) which simplifies goodwill impairment testing by requiring that such periodic testing be performed by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount and recognizing an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value. The policy is effective for fiscal years, including interim periods, beginning after December 15, 2019. We adopted on February 1, 2020 and the adoption had no impact.

 

Fair Value Measurement: In 2018, the FASB issued amended guidance to remove, modify and add disclosure requirements for fair value measurements. This amendment is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted for any removed or modified disclosure requirements. Transition is on a prospective basis for the new and modified disclosures, and on a retrospective basis for disclosures that have been eliminated. The adoption of this guidance on February 1, 2020 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvement to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which is part of the FASB’s simplification initiative to maintain or improve the usefulness of the information provided to the users of financial statements while reducing cost and complexity in financial reporting. This update provides consistency in the accounting for share-based payments to nonemployees with that of employees. The updated guidance had no impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

In addition to the above, the Company has reviewed all other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, and does not believe the future adoption of any such pronouncements will have a material impact on its financial condition or the results of its operations.

 

There were various other accounting standards and interpretations issued recently, none of which are expected to a have a material impact on our financial position, operations or cash flows.

NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN AND FINANCIAL POSITION

 

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has an accumulated deficit of $20,949,534 as of April 30, 2021 and has a working capital deficit at April 30, 2021 of $2,700,793. As of April 30, 2021, the Company only had cash and cash equivalents of $1,342,321 and approximately $151,000 of short-term debt in default. The short-term debt agreements provide legal remedies for satisfaction of defaults, none of the lenders to this point have pursued their legal remedies. While the Company has continued to grow its revenues, at this time, the three months ended July 31, 2020 was only the first quarter the Company was able to achieve profitability from operations prior to interest and other expenses.  While the Company believes it will continue to build on the results achieved in this quarter, our current liquidity position raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Management’s plan is to raise additional funds in the form of debt or equity in order to (a) grow the business through building up brand awareness and developing and launching a potentially much larger auto parts e-commerce web site, autoparts4less.com while (b) continuing to fund losses until such time as revenues can sustain the Company. However, there is no assurance that management will be successful in being able to continue to obtain additional funding. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

NOTE 3 – PROPERTY

 

The Company capitalizes all property purchases over $1,000 and depreciates the assets on a straight-line basis over their useful lives of 3 years for computers and 7 years for all other assets.

NOTE 4 – LEASES

 

We lease certain warehouses and office space. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet; we recognize lease expense for these leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term. For lease agreements entered into or reassessed after the adoption of Topic 842, we did not combine lease and non-lease components.

 

Most leases include one or more options to renew, with renewal terms that can extend the lease term from one to 17 years or more. The exercise of lease renewal options is at our sole discretion. The depreciable life of assets and leasehold improvements are limited by the expected lease term, unless there is a transfer of title or purchase option reasonably certain of exercise.

 

Below is a summary of our lease assets and liabilities at April 30, 2021 and January 31, 2021.

Operating lease cost and rent was $30,479 and $34,079 for the three months ended April 30, 2021 and April 30, 2020, respectively.

 

NOTE 5 – CUSTOMER DEPOSITS

 

The Company receives payments from customers on orders prior to shipment. At April 30, 2021 the Company had received $268,932 (January 31, 2021- $188,385) in customer deposits for orders that were unfulfilled at April 30, 2021 and canceled subsequent to year end. The orders were unfulfilled at April 30, 2021 because of supply chain issues due to supplier back-orders because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The deposits were returned to the customers subsequent to April 30, 2021.

 

NOTE 6 – DEFERRED REVENUE

 

The Company receives payments from customers on orders prior to shipment. At April 30, 2021 the Company had received $981,830 (January 31, 2021- $687,766) in customer payments for orders that were unfulfilled at April 30, 2021 and delivered subsequent to April 30, 2021. The orders were unfulfilled at April 30, 2021 because of supply chain issues due to supplier back-orders because of the Covid-19 pandemic as well as processing and delivery timing.

 

NOTE 7 – PPP LOAN

 

On May 2, 2020 the Company entered into a Paycheck Protection Promissory (PPP) Note Agreement whereby the lender would advance proceeds of $209,447 at a fixed rate of 1% per annum and a May 2, 2022 maturity. The loan is repayable in monthly installments of $8,818 commencing September 2, 2021 and continuing on the second day of every month thereafter until maturity when any remaining principal and interest are due and payable. At April 30, 2021 the loan is classified as $79,362 current and $130,085 long-term. The Company used the proceeds of this loans for working capital and the Company intends to use these proceeds in a manner consistent with obtaining loan forgiveness, which the Company is currently in the process of gathering the required information to file its forgiveness application and expects to have filed its application before the end of its second fiscal quarter.

The Company had accrued interest payable of $222,667 and $240,713 on the notes at April 31, 2021 and January 31, 2021, respectively.

 

The Company analyzed the conversion option for derivative accounting consideration under ASC 815-15 “Derivatives and Hedging” and determined that some instruments should be classified as liabilities due to there being a variable number of shares to be delivered upon settlement of the above conversion options. The instruments are measured at fair value at the end of each reporting period or termination of the instrument with the change in fair value recorded to earnings. The fair value of the embedded conversion option resulted in a discount to the note on the debt modification date. For the three months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company recorded amortization of debt discount expense of $128,538 and $578,913, respectively. See more information in Note 10.

As of April 30, 2021, the Company had $151,000 of aggregate debt in default. The agreements provide legal remedies for satisfaction of defaults, none of the lenders to this point have pursued their legal remedies. The Company continues to accrue interest at the listed rates, and plans to seek their conversion or payoff within the next twelve months.

 

NOTE 10 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

As of April 30, 2021 and January 31, 2021, the Company had derivative liabilities of $148,957 and $213,741, respectively. During the three months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company recorded a gain of $4,187 and a loss of $74,780, respectively, from the change in the fair value of derivative liabilities. Any liabilities resulting from the warrants outstanding are immaterial.

 

The derivative liabilities are valued as a level 3 input for valuing financial instruments.

 

The following table presents changes in Level 3 liabilities measured at fair value for the three months ended April 30, 2021. Both observable and unobservable inputs were used to determine the fair value of positions that the Company has classified within the Level 3 category. Unrealized gains and losses associated with liabilities within the Level 3 category include changes in fair value that were attributable to both observable (e.g., changes in market interest rates) and unobservable (e.g., changes in unobservable long- dated volatilities) inputs.

The derivatives arise from convertible debt where the debt is convertible into common stock at variable conversion prices which are linked to the trading and/or bid prices of the Company’s common stock as traded on the OTC market.

 

As the price of the common stock varies it triggers a gain or loss based upon the discount to market assuming the debt was converted at the balance sheet date.

 

The fair value of the derivative liability is determined using the lattice model, is re-measured on the Company’s reporting dates, and is affected by changes in inputs to that model including our stock price, expected stock price volatility, the expected term, and the risk-free interest rate. A summary of the weighted average (in aggregate) significant unobservable inputs (Level 3 inputs) used in measuring the Company’s warrant liabilities and embedded conversion feature that are categorized within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy as of April 30, 2021 is as follows:

We had total revenue of $3,728,784 for the three months ended April 30, 2021, compared to $2,000,071 for the three months ended April 30, 2020. Sales increased by $1,728,713 due to aggressive advertising and increased consumer demand. The Company also recorded $981,830 in deferred revenue, which will be recognized as revenue next quarter and recognized $687,766 from last quarter. The deferred revenue represents orders paid by customers this period but delivered in the following period due to back orders and processing and delivery times. The Company also recorded $268,932 in customer deposits for the three months ended April 30, 2021 and recognized $188,385 from the prior quarter. The customer deposits are orders paid by customers and canceled in the following period due to back orders or other reasons.

 

The Company’s focus continues in growing its proprietary website revenues and the Company was successful in that, increasing its proprietary website revenue by 91%.

Gross Profit

 

We had gross profit of $962,206 for the three months ended April 30, 2021, compared to gross profit of $571,767 for the three months ended April 30, 2020. Gross profit increased by $390.439 as a result of the increased revenues explained above and partly offset by an increase in cost of revenue due to the Company having to purchase goods at higher product costs from distributers rather than the usual manufacturers due to higher than anticipated demand which manufacturers were not able to meet.

Other Income (Expense)

 

The following table shows our other income and expenses for the three months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020:

 

                Change  
Other Income (Expense)   2021     2020     $     %  
Gain (Loss) on Derivatives     4,187       (74,780 )     78,967       (106 %)

Total Other Income (Expense)     674,801       1,395,859       (721,058 )     (52 %)

The changes above can be explained by the reduction in convertible debt that started in the prior year’s quarter ended April 30,2020. As a result of the debt exchanges and settlements, the gain on settlement of debt was higher and there were reductions in amortization expense and interest expense due to the lower debt. The higher loss on derivatives is a function of the market factors in the valuation of the derivative liability described in Note 8.

 

We had a net loss of $567,557 for three months ended April 30, 2021, compared to net income of $1,186,898 for three months ended April 30, 2021. The decrease in net income was mainly due to the gain on settlement in debt that occurred in the three months ended April 30, 2020, the higher operating expenses, specifically marketing, investor relations and professional fees in the three months ended April 30, 2021 which were partly offset by the 86% increase in revenues.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Management believes that we will continue to incur losses for the immediate future. Therefore, we will need additional equity or debt financing until we can achieve profitability and positive cash flows from operating activities, if ever. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recovery of assets or the classification of liabilities that may be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern. For the three months ended April 30, 2021, we have increased revenue and are working to achieve positive cash flows from operations.

 

As of April 30, 2021, we had a cash balance of $1,342,321, share subscription receivable of $94,817, inventory of $307,526 and $4,461,893 in current liabilities. At the current cash consumption rate, we will need to consider additional funding sources going forward. We are taking proactive measures to reduce operating expenses and drive growth in revenue.

 

The successful outcome of future activities cannot be determined at this time and there is no assurance that, if achieved, we will have sufficient funds to execute our intended business plan or generate positive operating results.

ITEM 4. Controls and Procedures

 

(a)           Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures. Our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, after evaluating the effectiveness of our “disclosure controls and procedures” (as defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (the “Evaluation Date”), has concluded that as of the Evaluation Date, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to provide reasonable assurance that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, and 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. Moving forward, we hope that our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer will be able to devote the additional time and effort required so that our disclosure controls and procedures can become effective. Notwithstanding the assessment that our internal controls and procedures were not effective, we believe that our financial statements contained in this Quarterly Report for the quarter ended April 30, 2021 fairly present our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the years and months covered thereby in all material respects.
