SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

Included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K are “forward-looking” statements, as well as historical information. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot assure you that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements will prove to be correct. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors, including matters described in the section titled “Risk Factors.” Forward-looking statements include those that use forward-looking terminology, such as the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “project,” “plan,” “will,” “shall,” “should,” and similar expressions, including when used in the negative. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable and achievable, these statements involve risks and uncertainties and we cannot assure you that actual results will be consistent with these forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether to reflect events or circumstances after the date initially filed or published, to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events or otherwise.

 

We operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks emerge from time to time. It is not possible for us to predict all of those risks, nor can we assess the impact of all of those risks on our business or the extent to which any factor may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. The COVID-19 pandemic is adversely affecting us, our customers, counterparties, employees, and third-party service providers, and the ultimate extent of the impacts on our business, financial position, results of operations, liquidity and prospects are uncertain. Continued deterioration in general business and economic conditions, including further increases in unemployment rates, or turbulence in domestic or global markets could adversely affect our revenues and the values of our assets and liabilities, reduce the availability of funding, lead to a tightening of credit, and further increase stock price volatility. In addition, changes to statutes, regulations, or regulatory policies or practices as a result of, or in response to COVID-19, could affect us in substantial and unpredictable ways. The forward-looking statements in this Report are based on assumptions management believes are reasonable. However, due to the uncertainties associated with forward-looking statements, you should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Further, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and unless required by law, we expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to publicly update any of them in light of new information, future events, or otherwise.

 

From time to time, forward-looking statements also are included in our other periodic reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K, in our press releases, in our presentations, on our website and in other materials released to the public. Any or all of the forward-looking statements included in this Report and in any other reports or public statements made by us are not guarantees of future performance and may turn out to be inaccurate. These forward-looking statements represent our intentions, plans, expectations, assumptions and beliefs about future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors. Many of those factors are outside of our control and could cause actual results to differ materially from the results expressed or implied by those forward-looking statements. In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the events described in the forward-looking statements might not occur or might occur to a different extent or at a different time than we have described. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this Report. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements concerning other matters addressed in this Report and attributable to us or any person acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained or referred to in this Report.

 

Except to the extent required by law, we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, a change in events, conditions, circumstances or assumptions underlying such statements, or otherwise.

 

For discussion of factors that we believe could cause our actual results to differ materially from expected and historical results see “Item 1A - Risk Factors” below.

 

In this Report, unless otherwise indicated or the context otherwise requires, “Bergio”, the “Company”, “we”, “us” or “our” refer to Bergio International, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and its subsidiaries.

Item 1. Business

 

Company Overview

 

We were incorporated as “Alba Mineral Exploration, Inc.” on July 24, 2007, in the State of Delaware for the purpose of engaging in the exploration of mineral properties. On October 21, 2009, we entered into an exchange agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with Diamond Information Institute, Inc. (“Diamond Information Institute”), whereby we acquired all of the issued and outstanding common stock of Diamond Information Institute and changed the name of the company to Bergio International, Inc. On February 19, 2020, the Company changed its state of incorporation to the State of Wyoming.

 

The Bergio brand is our most important asset. The Bergio brand is associated with high-quality, handcrafted and individually designed pieces with European sensibility, Italian craftsmanship and a bold flair for the unexpected.  Bergio, is one of the most coveted brands of fine jewelry. Established in 1995, Bergio’s signature innovative design, coupled with extraordinary diamonds and precious stones, earned the company recognition as a highly sought-after purveyor of rare and exquisite treasures from around the globe. As President, CEO and Head Designer of Bergio, Berge Abajian performs a highly successful balancing act, accomplished with equal parts precision and passion. An informed and inspirational leader, Berge directs the company with the eye and soul of a designer and the mind of a businessman. The role that is perhaps closest to his heart, however, is that of designer. With family jewelry roots reaching back the 1930s, Berge is a third-generation jeweler and a purist when it comes to design. Berge’s understanding of every aspect, in both design and manufacturing, creates collections that are nothing short of peerless in craftsmanship and style. Berge creates a collection; he looks well beyond the drawing board. Berge focuses on the woman who will ultimately wear his pieces, bringing to creation a magnificent piece of jewelry that reflects the beauty and vitality a woman possesses. Bergio creations are a seamless blend of classic elegance and subtle flair, adding to a woman’s charm while never overpowering her.

 

It is our intention to establish Bergio as a holding company for the purpose of establishing retails stores worldwide. Our branded product lines are products and/or collections designed by our designer and CEO Berge Abajian and will be the centerpiece of our retail stores. We also intend to complement our own quality-designed jewelry with other products and our own specially designed handbags. This is in line with our strategy and belief that a brand name can create an association with innovation, design and quality which helps add value to the individual products as well as facilitate the introduction of new products.

 

It is our intention to open elegant stores in “high-end” areas and provide excellent service in our stores which will be staffed with knowledgeable professionals.

 

We also intend to sell our products on a wholesale basis to limited customers.

 

On March 5, 2014, the Company formed a wholly owned subsidiary called Crown Luxe, Inc. in the State of Delaware (“Crown Luxe”). Crown Lux was established to operate the Company’s first retail store, which was opened in Bergen County, New Jersey in the fourth quarter of 2014.

 

During the fall of 2018, we opened our second retail store at the new Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. We are also contemplating the opening of new stores in the future.

 

The Company’s plan is also to expand its online presence and take advantage of the Bergio Brand.

 

On February 10, 2021, Bergio International, Inc. entered into an Acquisition Agreement with Digital Age Business, Inc., a Florida corporation, (“Digital Age”), pursuant to which the shareholders of Digital Age  agreed to sell all of the assets and liabilities of its Aphrodite’s business to a recently formed wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company known as Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc., a Wyoming corporation in exchange for newly created Series B Preferred Stock of the Company, which collectively, shall be convertible at Shareholders’ option, at any time, in whole or in part, into that number of shares of common stock of the Company which shall equal thirty percent (30%) of the total issued and outstanding common stock of the Company (as determined at the earlier of (i) the date of conversion of the Series B Preferred Stock; and (ii) eighteen (18) months following the Closing). In addition, the Company will provide an additional $5,000,000 in financing for Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc. (See Note to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional detail and Form 8-K file with the SEC on February 17, 2021.

The funding for this acquisition will be a combination of proceeds from the issuance of common stock from our S-1 Registration Statement and debt.

 

Aphrodite is expected to increase our online presence and provide for expansion of the Bergio Brand. Aphrodite is a one-stop shop for jewelry, gifts, and surprises for any occasion. The online store provides for a unique gifting experience in the ecommerce space. With their technological experience in ecommerce, we expect to grow the Bergio Brand, and in conjunction with Bergio’s design expertise and years of experience in the jewelry industry, we believe we can successfully grow the business We are now amassing one of the best teams and technology in this space.

 

The Company has instituted various cost saving measures to conserve cash and has worked with its debtors in an attempt to negotiate the debt terms. The Company has been also investigating various strategies to increase sales and expand its business. The Company is in negotiations with some potential partners, but, at this time, there is nothing concrete, but the Company remains positive about its prospects. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be successful in its endeavors or that it will be able to increase its business.

 

Our future operations are contingent upon increasing revenues and raising capital for on-going operations and expansion of our product lines. Because we have a limited operating history, you may have difficulty evaluating our business and future prospects.

 

Principal Products and Services

 

Our products consist of a wide range of unique jewelry styles and designs made from precious metals such as gold, platinum and Karat gold, as well as other precious stones. We continuously innovate and change our designs based upon consumer trends. As a result of new designs being created, we believe we are able to differentiate ourselves from our competition and strengthen our brands. We sell our products to our customers at price points that reflect the market price of the base material as well as design and processing fees.

 

We believe that we are a trendsetter in jewelry manufacturing. As a result, we come out with a variety of products throughout the year that we believe have commercial potential to meet what we feel are new trends within the industry. The “Bergio” designs consist of upscale jewelry that includes white diamonds, yellow diamonds, pearls, and colored stones, in 18K gold, platinum, and palladium. We currently design and produce approximately 100 to 150 product styles. Current retail prices for our products range from $400 to $200,000.

 

Our product range is divided into three fashion lines: (i) an 18K gold line, (ii) a bridal line, and (iii) a couture and/or one of kind pieces. Our Chief Executive Officer and director, Mr. Abajian, consults regularly with the design teams to design and create new products and product lines. Typically, new products come on line approximately every year and most recently, Bergio collections include Byzantine, Cestino, and Safari Collections, which consist of approximately 35 pieces made with pink gold and diamonds. Our offerings also include the Sistina and Rocca Collections. Depending on the timing and styling at any point in time, our products and collections would fall in one of the various categories shown below:

 

1.Whimsical. The whimsical line includes charms, crosses and other “add-on” pieces. 

 

2.Fine. The proposed middle line will consist of fashion jewelry utilizing colored stones, diamonds and pearls applied to a variety of applications such as necklaces, pendants, earrings, bracelets and rings. The metals that we intend to use for the Middle line include platinum, 18K white & yellow gold. 

 

3.Couture. The Couture line is our most luxurious line, and consists of one-of-a-kind pieces, new showcase products each year, and predominantly utilizes diamonds, platinum and other precious metals and stones of the highest grade and quality available. 

 

4.Bridal. The Bridal line is our core business. We attempt to stay on the forefront of trends and designs in the bridal market with the latest in wedding sets, engagement rings and wedding bands for both men and women. 

 

5.Fashion Jewelry. The Silver Fashion Collection was introduced in 2019 ranging in price from $50 to $1,200.

6.Bergio Handbags. The Bergio Handbag Collection was introduced in 2019, manufactured in Italy with top quality Italian leather ranging in price from $450 to $875, which are very competitive entry prices. 

 

Each year, we attempt to expand and/or enhance these lines, while constantly seeking to identify trends that we believe exist in the market for new styles or types of merchandise. Design and innovation are the primary focus of our manufacturing and we are less concerned with the supply and capacity of raw materials. Mr. Abajian with his contacts, which are located mostly overseas, regularly meets to discuss, conceptualize and develop Bergio’s various products and collections. When necessary, additional suppliers and design teams can be brought in as needed. Management intends to maintain a diverse line of jewelry to mitigate concentration of sales and continuously expand our market reach.

 

Competition and Market Overview

 

The jewelry design and manufacture industry is extremely competitive and has low barriers to entry. We compete with other jewelry designers and manufacturers of upscale jewelry as well as retail jewelry stores. There are over 1,500 jewelry design and manufacture companies worldwide, several of which have greater experience, brand name recognition and financial resources than Bergio, but our vision to create a one Branded stores offering variety of products gives us an advantage over other designers

 

Our management believes that the jewelry industry competes in the global marketplace and therefore must be adaptable to remain competitive. Consumer spending for discretionary goods such as jewelry is sensitive to changes in consumer confidence and ultimately consumer confidence is affected by general business considerations in the U.S. economy. Consumer discretionary spending generally declines during times of falling consumer confidence, which may affect the retail sale of our products. U.S. consumer confidence reflected these slowing conditions throughout the last few years.

 

We believe that a stronger economy, more spending by young professionals with an overall trend toward luxury products will lead to future growth. Therefore, we intend to make strong efforts to maintain our brand in the industry through our focus on the innovation and design of our products as well as being able to consolidate and increase cost efficiency when possible through acquisitions.

PART I (continued)

 

Marketing and Distribution

 

It is our intention to establish Bergio as a holding company for the purpose of establishing retails stores worldwide. Our branded product lines are products and/or collections designed by our designer and CEO Berge Abajian and will be the centerpiece of our retail stores. We also intend to complement our own quality-designed jewelry with other products and our own specially designed handbags manufactured in Florence Italy also this year we introduced our silver Fashion Line which completed the Brand. This is in line with our strategy and belief that a brand name can create an association with innovation, design and quality which helps add value to the individual products as well as facilitate the introduction of new products.

 

It is our intention to open elegant stores in “high-end” areas and provide excellent service in our stores which will be staffed with knowledgeable professionals and opening online shopping gives us an extreme reach into different markets and support our retail operations.

 

We also intend to sell our products on a wholesale basis to limited customers.

 

We have spent over $3 million in branding the Bergio name through tradeshows, trade advertising, national advertising and billboard advertising since launching the line in 1995. Our products consist of a wide range of unique styles and designs made from precious metals such as, gold, platinum, and Karat gold, as well as diamonds and other precious stones. We have manufacturing control over our line of products.

 

On February 10, 2021, Bergio International, Inc. entered into an Acquisition Agreement with Digital Age Business, Inc., a Florida corporation, (“Digital Age”), pursuant to which the shareholders of Digital Age  agreed to sell all of the assets and liabilities of its Aphrodite’s business to a recently formed wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company known as Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc.

Customers

 

During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company had two customers, each over 5% of sales, which accounted for 23% of total sales. No other single customer accounted for over 5% or more of our annual sales.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company had four customers, each over 5% of sales, which accounted for 32% of total sales. No other single customer accounted for over 5% or more of our annual sales.

 

As of December 31, 2020, accounts receivable, net amounted to only $100,255 and three customers represented 89% of this balance.

 

As of December 31, 2019, accounts receivable, net amounted to only $85,711 and two customers represented 84% of this balance.

 

Sources and Availability of Raw Materials and Principal Suppliers

 

Most of the inventory and raw materials we purchase occurs through our manufacturers located in Europe. The inventory that we directly maintain is based on recent sales and revenues of our products but ultimately is at the discretion of Mr. Abajian, and his experience in the industry. Our inventories are commodities that can be incorporated into future products or can be sold on the open market. Additionally, we perform physical inventory inspections on a quarterly basis to assess upcoming styling needs and consider the current pricing in metals and stones needed for our products.

 

We acquire all raw gemstones, precious metals and other raw materials used for manufacturing our products on the open market. We are not constrained in our purchasing by any contracts with any suppliers and acquire raw material based upon, among other things, availability and price on the open wholesale market.

 

Product for U.S. consumption is now produced in the U.S, and our contracted manufacturer in Italy. Our manufacturing supplier in Italy, who procures the raw materials in accordance with the specifications and designs submitted by Bergio. However, the general supply of precious metals and stones used by us can be reasonably forecast even though the prices will fluctuate. Any price differentials in the precious metals and stones will typically be passed on to the customer.

 

For the raw materials not procured by contracted manufacturers, we have approximately five suppliers that compete for our business, with our largest gold suppliers being ASD Casting Inc. Most of our precious stones are purchased from various diamond dealers. We do not have any formal agreements with any of our suppliers but have established an ongoing relationship with each of our suppliers.

 

Intellectual Property

 

Bergio is a federally registered trademarked name that we own. Since the first trademark of “Bergio” was filed, all advertising, marketing, trade shows and overall presentation of our product to the public has prominently displayed this trademark. As additional lines are designed and added to our products, we may trademark new names to distinguish particular products and jewelry lines.

 

Research and Development

 

There were no expenses incurred for research and development in 2020 and 2019.

 

Employees

 

As of March 15, 2021, Bergio International, Inc, excluding Aphrodite’s Marketing, had 3 full-time employees and 2 part-time employees. Our current employees are sales and marketing personnel. No personnel are covered by a collective bargaining agreement. We use the services of independent consultants and contractors from time to time when needed.

Environmental Regulation and Compliance

 

The United States environmental laws do not materially impact our manufacturing as we are using state of the art equipment that complies with all relevant environmental laws.

 

Approximately 5% of the Company’s manufacturing is contracted to quality suppliers in the vicinity of Valenza, Italy, with the remaining 95% of setting and finishing work being conducted in our Fairfield, New Jersey facility. The setting and finishing work done in our New Jersey facility involves the use of precision lasers, rather than using old soldering procedures which uses gas and oxygen to assemble different elements. Soap and water is used as a standard to clean the jewelry. Also, a standard polishing compound is used for the finishing work, but it does not have a material impact on our cost and effect of compliance with environmental laws.

 

Government Regulation

 

Currently, we are subject to all of the government regulations that regulate businesses generally such as compliance with regulatory requirements of federal, state, and local agencies and authorities, including regulations concerning workplace safety, labor relations, and disadvantaged businesses. In addition, our operations are affected by federal and state laws relating to marketing practices in the retail jewelry industry. We are subject to the jurisdiction of federal, various state and other taxing authorities. From time to time, these taxing authorities review or audit our business.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

Risks Related to Our Business and Industry

 

WE HAVE HAD LIMITED OPERATIONS, HAVE INCURRED LOSSES SINCE INCEPTION, HAVE LIMITEDCASH TO SUSTAIN OUR OPERATIONS, AND WE NEED ADDITIONAL CAPITAL TO EXECUTE OUR BUSINESS PLAN AND RECEIVED A GOING CONCERN OPINION IN PRIOR PERIODS.

 

The Company has suffered recurring losses. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had limited cash on hand and $153,870 in convertible debt and loans payable.  At December 31, 2020, the Company also had a stockholders’ deficit of $171,078. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The recoverability of a major portion of the recorded asset amounts shown in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet is dependent upon continued operations of the Company, which in turn, is dependent upon the Company's ability to raise capital and/or generate positive cash flows from operations.

 

Management plans to achieve profitability by increasing its business through opening additional retail stores and expanding its online presence. There can be no assurance that the Company can raise the required capital to support operations or increase sales to achieve profitable operations. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence.

 

A DECLINE IN DISCRETIONARY CONSUMER SPENDING MAY ADVERSELY AFFECT OUR INDUSTRY, OUR OPERATIONS, AND ULTIMATELY OUR PROFITABILITY.

 

Luxury products, such as fine jewelry, are discretionary purchases for consumers. Any reduction in consumer discretionary spending or disposable income may affect the jewelry industry more significantly than other industries. Many economic factors outside of our control could affect consumer discretionary spending, including the financial markets, consumer credit availability, prevailing interest rates, energy costs, employment levels, salary levels, and


5


tax rates. Any reduction in discretionary consumer spending could materially adversely affect our business and financial condition.

 

THERE IS A RISK ASSOCIATED WITH COVID-19

 

The Company’s operations were and may be continued to be affected by the recent and ongoing outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) which in March 2020, was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. The ultimate disruption which may be caused by the outbreak is uncertain; however, it may result in a material adverse impact on the Company’s financial position, operations and cash flows. Possible areas that may be affected include, but are not limited to, disruption to the Company’s customers and revenue, labor workforce, unavailability of products and supplies used in operations, and the decline in value of assets held by the Company, including property and equipment.

 

OUR OPERATING RESULTS MAY BE ADVERSELY IMPACTED BY WORLDWIDE POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC UNCERTAINTIES AND SPECIFIC CONDITIONS IN THE MARKETS WE ADDRESS.

 

In the recent past, general worldwide economic conditions have experienced a downturn due to slower economic activity, concerns about inflation, increased energy costs, decreased consumer confidence, and reduced corporate profits and capital spending, and adverse business conditions. Any continuation or worsening of the current global economic and financial conditions could materially adversely affect (i) our ability to raise, or the cost of, needed capital, (ii) demand for our current and future products and (iii) our ability to commercialize products. We cannot predict the timing, strength, or duration of any economic slowdown or subsequent economic recovery, worldwide, or in the display industry.

 

THE LOSS OF THE SERVICERS OF OUR KEY EMPLOYEES, PARTICULARLY THE SERVICES RENDERED BY OUR CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER AND DIRECTOR, MR. BERGE ABAJIAN, COULD HARM OUR BUSINESS.

 

We believe our success will depend, to a significant extent, on the efforts and abilities of Berge Abajian, our Chief Executive Officer. If we lost Mr. Abajian, we would be forced to expend significant time and money in the pursuit of a replacement, which would result in both a delay in the implementation of our business plan and the diversion of limited working capital. We can give you no assurance that we could find a satisfactory replacement for Mr. Abajian at all, or on terms that are not unduly expensive or burdensome.

 

OUR FUTURE SUCCESS DEPENDS UPON, IN LARGE PART, OUR CONTINUING ABILITY TO ATTRACT AND RETAIN QUALIFIED PERSONNEL.

 

If we grow and implement our business plan, we will need to add managerial talent to support our business plan. There is no guarantee that we will be successful in adding such managerial talent. These professionals are regularly recruited by other companies and may choose to change companies. Given our relatively small size compared to some of our competitors, the performance of our business may be more adversely affected than our competitors would be if we lose well-performing employees and are unable to attract new ones.

 

BECAUSE WE INTEND TO OPEN NEW RETAIL STORES AND SUCH ACTIVITY INVOLVES A NUMBER OF RISKS, OUR BUSINESS MAY SUFFER.

 

We may consider acquisitions of assets or other business.  Any acquisition or opening of another retail store or other operations involves a number of risks that could fail to meet our expectations and adversely affect our profitability.  For example:

 

·The acquired assets or business may not achieve expected results; 

·We may incur substantial, unanticipated costs, delays or other operational or financial problems when integrating the acquired assets; 

·We may not be able to retain key personnel of an acquired business; 

·We may not be able to raise the required capital to expand; 

·Our management’s attention may be diverted; or 

·Our management may not be able to manage the acquired assets or combined entity effectively or to make acquisitions and grow our business internally at the same time. 


6


If these problems arise, we may not realize the expected benefits of an acquisition.

 

BECAUSE THE JEWELRY INDUSTRY IN GENERAL IS AFFECTED BY FLUCTUATIONS IN THE PRICES OF PRECIOUS METALS AND PRECIOUS AND SEMI-PRECIOUS STONES, WE COULD EXPERIENCE INCREASED OPERATING COSTS THAT WILL AFFECT OUR BOTTOM LINE.

 

The availability and prices of gold, diamonds, and other precious metals and precious and semi-precious stones may be influenced by cartels, political instability in exporting countries and inflation.

 

Shortages of these materials or sharp changes in their prices could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations or financial condition. A significant change in prices of key commodities, including gold, could adversely affect our business or reduce operating margins and impact consumer demand if retail prices increased significantly, even though we historically incorporate any increases in the purchase of raw materials to our consumers. Additionally, a significant disruption in our supply of gold or other commodities could decrease the production and shipping levels of our products, which may materially increase our operating costs and ultimately affect our profit margins.

 

BECAUSE WE DEPEND ON OUR ABILITY TO IDENTIFY AND RESPOND TO FASHION TRENDS, IF WE MISJUDGE THESE TRENDS, OUR ABILITY TO MAINTAIN AND GAIN MARKET SHARE WILL BE AFFECTED.

 

The jewelry industry is subject to rapidly changing fashion trends and shifting consumer demands. Accordingly, our success may depend on the priority that our target customers place on fashion and our ability to anticipate, identify, and capitalize upon emerging fashion trends. If we misjudge fashion trends or are unable to adjust our products in a timely manner, our net sales may decline or fail to meet expectations and any excess inventory may be sold at lower prices.

 

OUR ABILITY TO MAINTAIN OR INCREASE OUR REVENUES COULD BE HARMED IF WE ARE UNABLE TO STRENGTHEN AND MAINTAIN OUR BRAND IMAGE.

 

We have spent significant amounts of time and money in branding our Bergio and Bergio Bridal lines. We believe that primary factors in determining customer buying decisions, especially in the jewelry industry, are determined by price, confidence in the merchandise and quality associated with a brand. The ability to differentiate products from competitors of the Company has been a factor in attracting consumers. However, if the Company’s ability to promote its brand fails to garner brand recognition, its ability to generate revenues may suffer. If the Company fails to differentiate its products, its ability to sell its products wholesale will be adversely affected. These factors could result in lower selling prices and sales volumes, which could adversely affect its financial condition and results of operations.

 

IF WE WERE TO EXPERIENCE SUBSTANTIAL DEFAULTS BY OUR CUSTOMERS ON ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE, THIS COULD HAVE A MATERIAL ADVERSE EFFECT ON OUR LIQUIDITY AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

 

If customers responsible for a large amount of accounts receivable were to become insolvent or otherwise unable to pay for our products, or to make payments in a timely manner, our liquidity and results of operations could be materially adversely affected. An economic or industry downturn could materially affect the ability to collect these accounts receivable, which could then result in longer payment cycles, increased collections costs and defaults in excess of management’s expectations. A significant deterioration in the ability to collect on accounts receivable could affect our cash flow and working capital position.

 

WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO INCREASE SALES OR OTHERWISE SUCCESSFULLY OPERATE OUR BUSINESS, WHICH COULD HAVE A SIGNIFICANT NEGATIVE IMPACT ON OUR FINANCIAL CONDITION.

 

We believe that the key to our success is to increase our revenues and available cash. We may not have the resources required to promote our business and its potential benefits. If we are unable to gain market acceptance of our business, we will not be able to generate enough revenue to achieve and maintain profitability or to continue our operations.


7


We may not be able to increase our sales or effectively operate our business. To the extent we are unable to achieve sales growth, we may continue to incur losses. We may not be successful or make progress in the growth and operation of our business. Our current and future expense levels are based on operating plans and estimates of future sales and revenues and are subject to increase as strategies are implemented. Even if our sales grow, we may be unable to adjust spending in a timely manner to compensate for any unexpected revenue shortfall.

 

Further, if we substantially increase our operating expenses to increase sales and marketing, and such expenses are not subsequently followed by increased revenues, our operating performance and results would be adversely affected and, if sustained, could have a material adverse effect on our business. To the extent we implement cost reduction efforts to align our costs with revenue, our sales could be adversely affected.

 

WE MAY NEED ADDITIONAL FINANCING WHICH WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO OBTAIN ON ACCEPTABLE TERMS. IF WE ARE UNABLE TO RAISE ADDITIONAL CAPITAL, AS NEEDED, THE FUTURE GROWTH OF OUR BUSINESS AND OPERATIONS COULD BE SEVERELY LIMITED.

 

A limiting factor on our growth is our limited capitalization, which could impact our ability to execute on our business plan. If we raise additional capital through the issuance of debt, this will result in increased interest expense. If we raise additional funds through the issuance of equity or convertible debt securities, the percentage ownership of the Company held by existing shareholders will be reduced and our shareholders may experience significant dilution. In addition, new securities may contain rights, preferences or privileges that are senior to those of our Common Stock. If additional funds are raised by the issuance of debt or other equity instruments, we may become subject to certain operational limitations (for example, negative operating covenants). There can be no assurance that acceptable financing necessary to further implement our business plan can be obtained on suitable terms, if at all. Our ability to develop our business, fund expansion, develop or enhance products or respond to competitive pressures, could suffer if we are unable to raise the additional funds on acceptable terms, which would have the effect of limiting our ability to increase our revenues or possibly attain profitable operations in the future.

 

WE MAY BE UNABLE TO MANAGE GROWTH, WHICH MAY IMPACT OUR POTENTIAL PROFITABILITY.

 

Successful implementation of our business strategy requires us to manage our growth. Growth could place an increasing strain on our management and financial resources. To manage growth effectively, we will need to:

 

·Establish definitive business strategies, goals and objectives; 

·Maintain a system of management controls; and 

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

 

If we fail to manage our growth effectively, our business, financial condition or operating results could be materially harmed, and our stock price may decline.

 

Risks Related to Our Common Stock

 

OUR COMMON STOCK IS CURRENTLY QUOTED ON THE OTC MARKETS (PINK SHEETS), WHICH MAY HAVE AN UNFAVORABLE IMPACT ON OUR STOCK PRICE AND LIQUIDITY.  

 

Our common stock is quoted on the Pink Sheets, an over-the-counter electronic quotation system maintained by the OTC Markets.  The quotation of our shares on the Pink Sheets may result in a less liquid market available for existing and potential stockholders to trade shares of our common stock, could depress the trading price of our common stock and could have a long-term adverse impact on our ability to raise capital in the future.

 

THERE IS LIMITED LIQUIDITY ON THE PINK SHEETS, WHICH ENHANCES THE VOLATILE NATURE OF OUR EQUITY.  

 

When fewer shares of a security are being traded on the Pink Sheets, volatility of prices may increase and price movement may outpace the ability to deliver accurate quote information.  Due to lower trading volumes in shares of our common stock, there may be a lower likelihood that orders for shares of our common stock will be executed, and current prices may differ significantly from the price that was quoted at the time of entry of the order.


8


OUR COMMON STOCK IS CONSIDERED A “PENNY STOCK,” AND IS SUBJECT TO ADDITIONAL SALE AND TRADING REGULATIONS THAT MAY MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT TO SELL.

 

Our common stock is considered to be a “penny stock” since it does not qualify for one of the exemptions from the definition of “penny stock” under Section 3a51-1 of the Exchange Act. Our common stock is a “penny stock” because it meets one or more of the following conditions (i) the stock trades at a price less than $5.00 per share; (ii) it is not traded on a “recognized” national exchange; (iii) it is not quoted on the Nasdaq Stock Market, or even if so, has a price less than $5.00 per share; or (iv) is issued by a company that has been in business less than three years with net tangible assets less than $5 million.

 

The principal result or effect of being designated a “penny stock” is that securities broker-dealers participating in sales of our common stock will be subject to the “penny stock” regulations set forth in Rules 15-2 through 15g-9 promulgated under the Exchange Act. For example, Rule 15g-2 requires broker-dealers dealing in penny stocks to provide potential investors with a document disclosing the risks of penny stocks and to obtain a manually signed and dated written receipt of the document at least two business days before effecting any transaction in a penny stock for the investor’s account. Moreover, Rule 15g-9 requires broker-dealers in penny stocks to approve the account of any investor for transactions in such stocks before selling any penny stock to that investor.

 

This procedure requires the broker-dealer to (i) obtain from the investor information concerning his or her financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives; (ii) reasonably determine, based on that information, that transactions in penny stocks are suitable for the investor and that the investor has sufficient knowledge and experience as to be reasonably capable of evaluating the risks of penny stock transactions; (iii) provide the investor with a written statement setting forth the basis on which the broker-dealer made the determination in (ii) above; and (iv) receive a signed and dated copy of such statement from the investor, confirming that it accurately reflects the investor's financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives. Compliance with these requirements may make it more difficult and time consuming for holders of our common stock to resell their shares to third parties or to otherwise dispose of them in the market or otherwise.

 

OUR CURRENT CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER AND SOLE DIRECTOR, MR. BERGE ABAJIAN HAS SUFFICIENT VOTING POWER TO CONTROL THE VOTE ON SUBSTANTIALLY ALL CORPORATE MATTERS.

 

Berge Abajian, our chief executive officer and sole director has sufficient voting power to control the vote on substantially all corporate matters. Accordingly, Mr. Abajian will be able to determine the composition of our board of directors, will retain the effective voting power to approve all matters requiring shareholder approval, will prevail in matters requiring shareholder approval, including, in particular the election and removal of directors, and will continue to have significant influence over our business. As a result of his ownership and position in the Company, Mr. Abajian is able to influence all matters requiring shareholder action, including significant corporate transactions.

 

TRADING OF OUR STOCK MAY BE RESTRICTED BY THE U.S. SECURITIES & EXCHANGE COMMISSION’S PENNY STOCK REGULATIONS, WHICH MAY LIMIT A STOCKHOLDER’S ABILITY TO BUY AND SELL OUR STOCK.

 

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted regulations which generally define “penny stock” to be any equity security that has a market price (as defined) less than $5.00 per share or an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. Our securities are covered by the penny stock rules, which impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and “accredited investors”. The term “accredited investor” refers generally to institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with a net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouse. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document in a form prepared by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. The bid and offer quotations, and the broker-dealer and salesperson compensation information, must be given to the customer orally or in writing prior to effecting the transaction and must be given to the customer in writing before or with the customer’s confirmation. In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from these rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the


9


penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for the stock that is subject to these penny stock rules. Consequently, these penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to trade our securities. We believe that the penny stock rules discourage investor interest in and limit the marketability of our common stock.

 

WE CURRENTLY HAVE A LIMITED ACCOUNTING STAFF, AND IF WE FAIL TO DEVELOP OR MAINTAIN AN EFFECTIVE SYSTEM OF INTERNAL CONTROLS, WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO REPORT OUR FINANCIAL RESULTS TIMELY AND ACCURATELY OR PREVENT FRAUD, WHICH WOULD LIKELY HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE MARKET PRICE OF OUR COMMON UNITS.

 

We are subject to the public reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”). Effective internal controls are necessary for us to provide reliable and timely financial reports, prevent fraud and to operate successfully as a publicly traded partnership.

 

We prepare our consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting and principles generally accepted in the United States, but our internal accounting controls may not meet all standards applicable to companies with publicly traded securities.  Our efforts to develop and maintain our internal controls may not be successful, and we may be unable to maintain effective controls over our financial processes and reporting in the future or to comply with our obligations under Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, which we refer to as Section 404. For example, Section 404 requires us, among other things, to annually review and report on, and our independent registered public accounting firm to attest to, the effectiveness of our internal controls over financial reporting.  Based on management’s evaluation, as of December 31, 2020, our management concluded that we had several material weaknesses related to our internal controls over financial reporting (See Item 9A).

 

THE MARKET PRICE FOR OUR COMMON SHARES IS PARTICULARLY VOLATILE GIVEN OUR STATUS AS A RELATIVELY UNKNOWN COMPANY WITH A SMALL AND THINLY TRADED PUBLIC FLOAT, LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY AND LACK OF PROFITS WHICH COULD LEAD TO WIDE FLUCTUATIONS IN OUR SHARE PRICE. YOU MAY BE UNABLE TO SELL YOUR COMMON SHARES AT OR ABOVE YOUR PURCHASE PRICE, WHICH MAY RESULT IN SUBSTANTIAL LOSSES TO YOU.

 

The market for our common shares is characterized by significant price volatility when compared to the shares of larger, more established companies that trade on a national securities exchange and have large public floats, and we expect that our share price will continue to be more volatile than the shares of such larger, more established companies for the indefinite future. The volatility in our share price is attributable to a number of factors. First, as noted above, our common shares are, compared to the shares of such larger, more established companies, sporadically and thinly traded. As a consequence of this limited liquidity, the trading of relatively small quantities of shares by our shareholders may disproportionately influence the price of those shares in either direction. The price for our shares could, for example, decline precipitously in the event that a large number of our common shares are sold on the market without commensurate demand. Secondly, we are a speculative or “risky” investment due to our limited operating history and lack of profits to date, and uncertainty of future market acceptance for our potential products. As a consequence of this enhanced risk, more risk-adverse investors may, under the fear of losing all or most of their investment in the event of negative news or lack of progress, be more inclined to sell their shares on the market more quickly and at greater discounts than would be the case with the stock of a larger, more established company that trades on a national securities exchange and has a large public float. Many of these factors are beyond our control and may decrease the market price of our common shares, regardless of our operating performance. We cannot make any predictions or projections as to what the prevailing market price for our common shares will be at any time, including as to whether our common shares will sustain their current market prices, or as to what effect that the sale of shares or the availability of common shares for sale at any time will have on the prevailing market price.

 

WE WILL INCUR INCREASED COSTS AS A RESULT OF BEING A PUBLIC COMPANY, WHICH COULD AFFECT OUR PROFITABILITY AND OPERATING RESULTS.

 

We voluntarily file annual, quarterly and current reports with the SEC. In addition, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (“Sarbanes-Oxley”) and the rules subsequently implemented by the SEC and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board have imposed various requirements on public companies, including requiring changes in corporate governance practices. We expect these rules and regulations to increase our legal and financial compliance costs and to make some activities of ours more time-consuming and costly. We expect to spend between $50,000 and


10


$100,000 in legal and accounting expenses annually to comply with our SEC reporting obligations and Sarbanes-Oxley. These costs could affect profitability and our results of operations.

 

WE HAVE NOT PAID DIVIDENDS IN THE PAST AND DO NOT EXPECT TO PAY DIVIDENDS FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE. ANY RETURN ON INVESTMENT MAY BE LIMITED TO THE VALUE OF OUR COMMON STOCK.

 

No cash dividends have been paid on the Company’s common stock. We expect that any income received from operations will be devoted to our future operations and growth. The Company does not expect to pay cash dividends in the near future. Payment of dividends would depend upon our profitability at the time, cash available for those dividends, and other factors as the Company’s board of directors may consider relevant. If the Company does not pay dividends, the Company’s common stock may be less valuable because a return on an investor’s investment will only occur if the Company’s stock price appreciates.

 

Item 1B. Unresolved Staff Comments.

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 2. Properties.

 

Currently, we lease 200 square feet in Fairfield, NJ for our offices. The lease expired August 31, 2010 and is being renewed on a month-to-month basis.

 

We also lease a 1,000 square foot retail store in Closter, NJ. The initial term of the lease is for five years commencing May 1, 2014. The Company has the option extend its lease for five additional years upon giving 90 days’ notice. The five-year option is available up to 20 years.  Rent payments are $1,200 a month for the first two years, $1,275 for the third and fourth year, and $1,350 for the fifth year. If the Company renews its option for the second five years, the rent will begin at $1,415 and escalate to $1,665 in the fifth year. If the option is exercised for the third five-year term, rent will begin at $1,800 per month and escalate to $2,280 in the fifth year. The rent for the last five years, if the Company exercises its option, will be at the fair market value. The Company is also responsible for its proportionate share of common charges.

 

In June 2018, the Company entered into lease agreement Ocean Resort Casino at 500 Boardwalk in Atlantic City, NJ for approximately 1,000 square feet of retail space to open a retail store. The initial term is for five (5) years beginning November 18, 2018. Subject to certain conditions, the lease is renewable for two additional 5-year periods. Percentage rent payments will be based on 10% of gross sales at this location and will be paid monthly. The Company is also responsible for additional rent or common area charges (“CAM”) of approximately $1,100 monthly.

 

Additionally, we anticipate opening additional retail stores as we continue to implement our business plan throughout the United States. At the current time, our expansion plans are in the preliminary stages with no formal negotiations being conducted. Most likely no expansions will take place until additional revenues can be achieved or additional capital can be raised to help offset the costs associated with any expansion.

 

Item 3. Legal Proceedings.

 

We are currently not involved in any litigation that we believe could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations.  There is no action, suit, proceeding, inquiry or investigation before or by any court, public board, government agency, self-regulatory organization or body pending or, to the knowledge of the executive officers of our company or any of our subsidiaries, threatened against or affecting our company, our common stock, any of our subsidiaries or of our companies or our subsidiaries’ officers or directors in their capacities as such, in which an adverse decision could have a material adverse effect.

Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

Forward Looking Statements

 

This report and other reports filed by our Company from time to time with the SEC (collectively the “Filings”) contain or may contain forward-looking statements and information that are based upon beliefs of, and information currently available to, our management as well as estimates and assumptions made by our management.  Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which are only predictions and speak only as of the date hereof.

 

When used in the filings, the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “future,” “intend,” “plan,” or the negative of these terms and similar expressions as they relate to us or our management identify forward-looking statements. Such statements reflect our current view with respect to future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and other factors, including those set forth in the Risk Factors on page 5. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may differ significantly from those anticipated, believed, estimated, expected, intended, or planned.

 

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements. Except, as required by applicable law, including the securities laws of the United States, we do not intend to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform these statements to actual results.

 

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). These accounting principles require us to make certain estimates, judgments and assumptions. We believe that the estimates, judgments and assumptions upon which we rely are reasonable based upon information available to us at the time that these estimates, judgments and assumptions are made. These estimates, judgments and assumptions can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented.  Our financial statements would be affected to the extent there are material differences between these estimates and actual results. In many cases, the accounting treatment of a particular transaction is specifically dictated by GAAP and does not require management’s judgment in its application. There are also areas in which management’s judgment in selecting any available alternative would not produce a materially different result. The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this report.

 

General

 

Management’s discussion and analysis of results of operations and financial condition is intended to assist the reader in the understanding and assessment of significant changes and trends related to the results of operations and financial position of the Company together with its subsidiary. This discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying financial notes, and with the Critical Accounting Policies noted below.

 

Plan of Operation

 

The Bergio brand is our most important asset. The Bergio brand is associated with high-quality, handcrafted and individually designed pieces with European sensibility, Italian craftsmanship and a bold flair for the unexpected. Bergio, is one of the most coveted brands of fine jewelry. Established in 1995, Bergio’s signature innovative design, coupled with extraordinary diamonds and precious stones, earned the company recognition as a highly sought-after purveyor of rare and exquisite treasures from around the globe.

 

When designer and PEO, Berge Abajian, creates a collection, he looks well beyond the drawing board. Berge focuses on the woman who will ultimately wear his pieces, bringing to creation a magnificent piece of jewelry that reflects the beauty and vitality a woman possesses. Bergio creations are a seamless blend of classic elegance and subtle flair, adding to a woman’s charm while never overpowering her.

 

It is our intention to establish Bergio as a holding company for the purpose of establishing retails stores worldwide. Our branded product lines are products and/or collections designed by our designer and CEO Berge Abajian and will be the centerpiece of our retail stores. We also intend to complement our own quality-designed jewelry with other products and our own specially designed handbags. This is in line with our strategy and belief that a brand name can


15


create an association with innovation, design and quality which helps add value to the individual products as well as facilitate the introduction of new products.

 

It is our intention to open elegant stores in “high-end” areas and provide excellent service in our stores which will be staffed with knowledgeable professionals.

 

We also intend to sell our products on a wholesale basis to limited customers.

 

We have spent over $3 million in branding the Bergio name through tradeshows, trade advertising, national advertising and billboard advertising since launching the line in 1995.

 

In 2019 we introduced The Silver Fashion Collection ranging in price from $50 to $1,200. The Company also introduced the Bergio Handbag Collection, manufactured in Italy with top quality Italian leather ranging in price from $450 to $875, which are very competitive entry prices.

 

Our products consist of a wide range of unique styles and designs made from precious metals such as, gold, platinum, and Karat gold, as well as diamonds and other precious stones. We currently design and produce approximately 100 to 150 product styles. Current retail prices for our products range from $400 to $200,000. We have manufacturing control over our line as a result of having a manufacturing facility in New Jersey as well as subcontracts with facilities located in Italy.

 

On March 5, 2014, the Company formed a wholly owned subsidiary called Crown Luxe, Inc. in the State of Delaware (“Crown Luxe”). Crown Lux was established to operate the Company’s first retail store, which was opened in Bergen County, New Jersey in the fourth quarter of 2014.

 

During the fall of 2018, we opened our second retail store at the new Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. We are also contemplating the opening of new stores in the future.

 

On February 10, 2021, Bergio International, Inc. entered into an Acquisition Agreement with Digital Age Business, Inc., a Florida corporation, (“Digital Age”), pursuant to which the shareholders of Digital Age  agreed to sell all of the assets and liabilities of its Aphrodite’s business to a recently formed wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company known as Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc., a Wyoming corporation in exchange for newly created Series B Preferred Stock of the Company, which collectively, shall be convertible at Shareholders’ option, at any time, in whole or in part, into that number of shares of common stock of the Company which shall equal thirty percent (30%) of the total issued and outstanding common stock of the Company (as determined at the earlier of (i) the date of conversion of the Series B Preferred Stock; and (ii) eighteen (18) months following the Closing). In addition, the Company will provide an additional $5,000,000 in financing for Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc. (See Note to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional detail and Form 8-K file with the SEC on February 17, 2021.

 

The funding for this acquisition will be a combination of proceeds from the issuance of common stock from our S-1 Registration Statement and debt.

 

Aphrodite is expected to increase our online presence and provide for expansion of the Bergio Brand. Aphrodite is a one-stop shop for jewelry, gifts, and surprises for any occasion. The online store provides for a unique gifting experience in the ecommerce space. With their technological experience in ecommerce, we expect to grow the Bergio Brand, and in conjunction with Bergio’s design expertise and years of experience in the jewelry industry, we believe we can successfully grow the business We are now amassing one of the best teams and technology in this space.

 

The Company has instituted various cost saving measures to conserve cash and has worked with its debtors in an attempt to negotiate the debt terms. The Company has been also investigating various strategies to increase sales and expand its business. The Company is in negotiations with some potential partners, but, at this time, there is nothing concrete, but the Company remains positive about its prospects. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be successful in its endeavors or that it will be able to increase its business.

 

Our future operations are contingent upon increasing revenues and raising capital for on-going operations and expansion of our product lines. Because we have a limited operating history, you may have difficulty evaluating our business and future prospects.

The Company’s retail operations have been and continue to be affected by the recent and ongoing outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) which in March 2020, was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. The ultimate disruption which may be caused by the outbreak is uncertain; however, it may result in a material adverse impact on the Company’s financial position, operations and cash flows. Possible areas that may be affected include, but are not limited to, disruption to the Company’s customers and revenue, labor workforce, unavailability of products and supplies used in operations, and the decline in value of assets held by the Company, including property and equipment.

 

Results of Operations - For the Year Ended December 31, 2020 Compared to the Year Ended December 31, 2019

 

Overview

 

Sales were stable for the year ended December 31, 2020 as compared to the prior year despite the impact of the current pandemic. Our retail operations have severely impacted by the pandemic. We continue to evaluate our initiatives. We have held special events and expanded our marketing efforts within the confines of our available resources. We are expanding our online presence and have been experiencing some positive results. As discussed in our Plan of Operation above we acquired 51% ownership of Aphrodite’s Marketing (Aphrodite”). Aphrodite is expected to increase our online presence and provide for expansion of the Bergio Brand. Aphrodite is a one-stop shop for jewelry, gifts, and surprises for any occasion.  The Company continues to position itself for the future to take advantage of the Bergio brand and establish a chain of retail stores worldwide. Our branded product lines are products and/or collections designed by our designer and CEO Berge Abajian and will be the centerpiece of our retail stores. We also intend to complement our own quality-designed jewelry with other products and our own specially-designed handbags. This is in line with our strategy and belief that a brand name can create an association with innovation, design and quality which helps add value to the individual products as well as facilitate the introduction of new products. It is our intention to open elegant stores in “high-end” areas and provide excellent service in our stores which will be staffed with knowledgeable professionals. We continue to be excited about our store in Atlantic City, NJ. Our initial store in northern New Jersey has not done as well as we had hoped and the wholesale market has also not been favorable as we spend our limited resources in building our high-end retail operations. The Company has leveraged itself such that as sales increase a larger portion of dollars will flow to the bottom line.

 

The Company continues to pursue additional financing opportunities and have initiate measures to strengthen our financial position. As a result, we have accomplished the following:

 

·We have negotiated some of our convertible debt.   

·Pursuant to a Settlement Agreement, Livingston Asset Management acquired $362,285 (the “Claim Amount”) of Company liabilities from certain creditors. In satisfaction of the Claim Amount, the Company agreed to issue shares of the Company’s common stock in one or more tranches to Livingston in the manner contemplated in the Settlement Agreement and Stipulation Agreement. The effect of this will be to convert debt to equity. 

·Filed a S-1 registration statement with the SEC. The Company has received proceeds from this offering. 

·Raised additional funding from loans. 

 

These events have allowed us to reduce our debt and provide limited funding for operations. We continue to pursue other opportunities. Moreover, there is no assurance that sufficient funding will be available, or if available, that its terms will be favorable to the Company. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

We continue to believe that our plan to establish a chain of retail stores in strategic markets will be step in the right direction.

 

Sales

 

Net sales for year ended December 31, 2020 decreased $16,175 (2.7%) to $584,806, as compared to $600,981 for the year ended December 31, 2019. This decrease is mostly attributed impact on the economy and consumer spending because of the pandemic. The Company was forced to close its retail stores for a period of time. The Company now has two retail stores, which have opened in the third quarter, but the stores still feel the impact of


17


reduced consumer spending. We were able to minimize the impact of the effect on our retail stores by our efforts on our wholesale operations, expanding our online presence, but it is too early to assess the real impact.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2020 decreased $38,758 (10.2%) to $341,118 as compared to $379,876 for the year ended December 31, 2019. This decrease in gross profit is primarily due to the change in sales mix as our retail sales have declined which yields a higher gross profit than our wholesale business. Gross profit as a percentage of sales was 58.3% for the year ended December 31, 2020 as compared to 63.2% for the year ended December 31, 2019.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

Total selling, general and administrative expenses increased $78,900 (15.0%) to $604,852 for the year ended December 31, 2020 as compared to $525,952 for the year ended December 31, 2019. This increase is attributed to higher consulting expenses, partially offset by lower rent, travel, depreciation and commission expenses. The Company incurred $148,000 of consulting expense to provide brand awareness for the Company’s new line of fashion accessories and to develop strategies for global expansion.  These services were paid for with the Company’s common stock and did not involve any cash.

 

Loss from Operations

 

As a result of the above, the Company had a loss from operations in the amount of $263,734 for the year ended December 31, 2020 as compared to $146,076 for the year ended December 31, 2019.

 

Other Expense

 

For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company had other income of $115,684 as compared to other expense of $2,888,967 for the year ended December 31, 2019. This increase is mostly attributed to the gain on the extinguishment of debt in the amount  of $32,676 for the year ended December 31, 2020 as compared  to a loss on the extinguishment of debt for the year ended December 31, 2019 in the amount of $2,290,000.

 

Net Loss

 

As a result of the above, the Company had a net loss of $148,050 or the year ended December 31, 2020 as compared to $3,035,043 for the year ended December 31, 2019.

Our working capital was $215,314 at December 31, 2020 as compared to negative working capital of $257,106 at December 31, 2019. This increase is primarily attributed to lower accounts payable and accrued liabilities, convertible debt and advances from stockholder offset partially by an increase in loans payable.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company had a net increase in cash of $47,291. The Company’s principal sources and uses of funds were as follows:

 

Cash used in operating activities. For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company used $180,102 in cash for operations as compared to $84,954 in cash for the year ended December 31, 2019. This increase in cash used in


18


operations is mostly attributed to decrease in accounts payable and accrued liabilities offset partially by the increase in deferred compensation.

 

Cash used in investing activities. For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company used $-0- in investing activities as compared to using $7,572 for the year ended December 31, 2019 as result of the decrease in the acquisition of capital assets.

 

Cash provided financing activities. For the year ended December 31, 2020 the Company provided $227,393 in financing activities as compared to $115,316 in cash for financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2019. This increase is primarily the result of an increase in proceeds from convertible debt, loans payable partially and proceeds from the sale of stock offset by higher payments of loans payable and advances from stockholder.

 

Our indebtedness is comprised of various convertible debt and advances from a stockholder/officer intended to provide capital for the ongoing manufacturing of our jewelry line, in advance of receipt of the payment from our retail distributors.

 

Convertible Debt

 

The Company enters into certain financing agreements for convertible debt. For the most part, the Company settles these obligations with the Company’s common stock. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had outstanding convertible debt in the amount of $232,870.

 

Loans Payable

 

The Company has loans payable of $312,300 at December 31, 2020.

 

Satisfaction of Our Cash Obligations for the Next 12 Months

 

A critical component of our operating plan impacting our continued existence is to increase sales and efficiently manage the production of our jewelry lines and successfully develop new lines through our Company or through possible acquisitions and/or mergers. Our ability to obtain capital through additional equity and/or debt financing, and joint venture partnerships will also be important to our expansion plans. In the event we experience any significant problems assimilating acquired assets into our operations or cannot obtain the necessary capital to pursue our strategic plan, we may have to reduce the growth of our operations. This may materially impact our ability to increase revenue and continue our growth.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, which contemplates continuation of the Company as a going concern.

 

The Company has suffered recurring losses, and at December 31, 2020, the Company had a stockholders’ deficit of $171,048. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had only $70,081 cash on hand and $545,170 in convertible debt and loans payable on December 31, 2020. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The recoverability of a major portion of the recorded asset amounts shown in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet is dependent upon continued operations of the Company, which in turn, is dependent upon the Company's ability to raise capital and/or generate positive cash flows from operations.

 

In addition to obtaining new customers and increasing sales to existing customers, management plans to achieve profitability by also establishing Bergio as a holding company for the purpose of establishing retails stores worldwide. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence.

 

On February 10, 2021, Bergio International, Inc. entered into an Acquisition Agreement with Digital Age Business, Inc., a Florida corporation, (“Digital Age”), pursuant to which the shareholders of Digital Age  agreed to sell all of the assets and liabilities of its Aphrodite’s business to a recently formed wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company known as Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc., a Wyoming corporation in exchange for newly created Series B Preferred Stock of the Company, which collectively, shall be convertible at Shareholders’ option, at any time, in whole or in part, into that number of shares of common stock of the Company which shall equal thirty percent (30%) of the total


19


issued and outstanding common stock of the Company (as determined at the earlier of (i) the date of conversion of the Series B Preferred Stock; and (ii) eighteen (18) months following the Closing). In addition, the Company will provide an additional $5,000,000 in financing for Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc. (See Note to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional detail and Form 8-K file with the SEC on February 17, 2021.

 

The funding for this acquisition will be a combination of proceeds from the issuance of common stock from our S-1 Registration Statement and debt.

 

Aphrodite is expected to increase our online presence and provide for expansion of the Bergio Brand. Aphrodite is a one-stop shop for jewelry, gifts, and surprises for any occasion. The online store provides for a unique gifting experience in the ecommerce space. With their technological experience in ecommerce, we expect to grow the Bergio Brand, and in conjunction with Bergio’s design expertise and years of experience in the jewelry industry, we believe we can successfully grow the business We are now amassing one of the best teams and technology in this space. However, there can be no assurance that this venture will be successful or that the Company can raise the required capital to fund this operation.

 

In addition to obtaining new customers and increasing sales to existing customers, management plans to achieve profitability by also establishing Bergio as a holding company for the purpose of establishing retails stores worldwide. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence.

 

Research and Development

 

We are not anticipating significant research and development expenditures in the near future.

 

Expected Purchase or Sale of Plant and Significant Equipment

 

We do not anticipate the purchase or sale of any plant or significant equipment; as such items are not required by us at this time.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The Company prepares its financial statements in accordance with GAAP. In preparing the financial statements and accounting for the underlying transactions and balances, the Company applies its accounting policies as disclosed in Note 2 of our Notes to Financial Statements.  The Company’s accounting policies that require a higher degree of judgment and complexity used in the preparation of financial statements include:

 

Revenue Recognition - the Company’s management recognizes revenue when realized or realizable and earned.  In connection with revenue, the Company established a sales return and allowance reserve for anticipated merchandise to be returned based on historical operations.  The Company’s sole revenue producing activity as a manufacturer and distributor of upscale jewelry is affected by movement in fashion trends and customer desire for new designs, varying economic conditions affecting consumer spending and changing product demand by retailers affecting their desired inventory levels. Realizing that this may, and in some periods has, resulted in a significant amount of sales returns, management revised the Company policy of accepting merchandise returns. Whereas under prior policy customers had up to 360 days to return merchandise and were allowed credits as offsets to their outstanding accounts receivable, under the current return policy merchandise, with limited exceptions, cannot be returned.

 

Accounts receivable - the Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers and adjusts credit limits based on customer payment and current credit worthiness, as determined by review of their current credit information.  The Company continuously monitors credits and payments from its customers and maintains provision for estimated credit losses based on its historical experience and any specific customer issues that have been identified. While such credit losses have historically been within our expectation and the provision established, the Company cannot guarantee that it will continue to receive positive results. Management has provided an allowance for doubtful accounts of $-0- at December 31, 2020 and $-0- at December 31, 2019.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments - The Company follows guidance issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) on “Fair Value Measurements” for assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis.  This guidance establishes a common definition for fair value to be applied to existing generally accepted accounting


20


principles that require the use of fair value measurements, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosure about such fair value measurements.

 

The FASB defines fair value 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.  Additionally, the FASB requires the use of valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs.

 

These inputs are prioritized below:

 

·Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. 

·Level 2: Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data. 

·Level 3: Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data, which require the use of the reporting entitys own assumptions. 

 

The Company discloses the estimated fair value for all financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate fair value. As of December 31, 2020, the fair value of short-term financial instruments including accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses, approximates book value due to their short-term maturity.  The fair value of property and equipment is estimated to approximate its net book value.  The fair value of debt obligations, other than convertible debt obligations, approximates their face values due to their short-term maturities and/or the variable rates of interest associated with the underlying obligations.

 

Income taxes - deferred tax assets arise from a variety of sources, the most significant being: a) tax losses that can be carried forward to be utilized against profits in future years; b) expenses recognized in the books but disallowed in the tax return until the associated cash flow occurs; and c) valuation changes of assets which need to be tax effected for book purposes but are deductible only when the valuation change is realized.

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using enacted tax rates and laws that are expected to be in effect when such differences are expected to reverse. The measurement of deferred tax assets is reduced, if necessary, by a valuation allowance for any tax benefit which is not more likely than not to be realized. In assessing the need for a valuation allowance, future taxable income is estimated, considering the realization of tax loss carryforwards. Valuation allowances related to deferred tax assets can also be affected by changes to tax laws, changes to statutory tax rates and future taxable income levels. In the event it was determined that the Company would not be able to realize all or a portion of its deferred tax assets in the future, the Company would reduce such amounts through a charge to income in the period in which that determination is made. Conversely, if it were determined that it would be able to realize the deferred tax assets in the future in excess of the net carrying amounts, the Company would decrease the recorded valuation  allowance through an increase to income in the period in which that determination is made. In its evaluation of a valuation allowance, the Company takes into account existing contracts and backlog, and the probability that options under these contract awards will be exercised as well as sales of existing products. The Company prepares profit projections based on the revenue and expenses forecast to determine that such revenues will produce sufficient taxable income to realize the deferred tax assets.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company is not party to any off-balance sheet arrangements that may affect its financial position or its results of operations.

 

Recently Adopted Authoritative Pronouncements

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes - simplifying the accounting for income taxes (Topic 740), which is meant to simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740, Income Taxes. The amendment also improves consistent application and simplify GAAP for other areas of Topic 740 by clarifying and amending existing guidance. We do not expect the adoption of this standard to have a significant impact on our financial position and results of operations.

 

No other recently issued accounting pronouncements had or are expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

To the shareholders and the board of directors of Bergio International, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Bergio International, Inc. as of December 31, 2020 and 2019, the related statements of operations, stockholders' equity (deficit), and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the "financial statements"). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2020 and 2019, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Substantial Doubt about the Company’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a significant accumulated deficit. In addition, the Company continues to experience negative cash flows from operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

BERGIO INTERNATIONAL, INC.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

 

Note 1. Business, Organization, and Liquidity

 

Business and Organization

 

Bergio International, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Delaware on July 24, 2007 under the name Alba Mineral Exploration, Inc. On October 21, 2009, as a result of a Share Exchange Agreement, the corporation’s name was changed to Bergio International, Inc. The Company is engaged in the product design, manufacturing, distribution of fine jewelry primarily in the United States and is headquartered in Fairfield, New Jersey. The Company also two retail stores located in Closter, NJ and Atlantic City, NJ. The Company’s intent is to take advantage of the Bergio brand and establish a chain of retail stores worldwide and increase its online presence. Our branded product lines are products and/or collections designed by our designer and CEO Berge Abajian and will be the centerpiece of our retail stores.

 

In September 2019, Bergio International, Inc. filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation to effectuate a 1-for-10,000 reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock. All share and per share data have been adjusted to reflect such stock split.

 

On February 19, 2020, the Company changed its state of incorporation to the State of Wyoming.

 

In July 2020, the Company filed a Registration Statement on Form S-1 with the purpose of providing funds for its operational plans as well as paying off debt to improve the Company’s financial position. There can be no assurance that the Company can raise sufficient from this offering to fund its plans.

 

On February 10, 2021, Bergio International, Inc. entered into an Acquisition Agreement with Digital Age Business, Inc., a Florida corporation, (“Digital Age”), pursuant to which the shareholders of Digital Age  agreed to sell all of the assets and liabilities of its Aphrodite’s business to a recently formed wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company known as Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc., a Wyoming corporation in exchange for newly created Series B Preferred Stock of the Company, which collectively, shall be convertible at Shareholders’ option, at any time, in whole or in part, into that number of shares of common stock of the Company which shall equal thirty percent (30%) of the total issued and outstanding common stock of the Company (as determined at the earlier of (i) the date of conversion of the Series B Preferred Stock; and (ii) eighteen (18) months following the Closing). In addition, the Company will provide an additional $5,000,000 in financing for Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc. (See Note to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional detail and Form 8-K filed with the SEC on February 17, 2021. The funding for this acquisition will be a combination of proceeds from the issuance of common stock from our S-1 Registration Statement and debt.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments necessary consisting of normal recurring adjustments to present fairly the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2020, the results of operations for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, and statements of cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019. The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Form 10-K.

 

Impact of the COVID-19 Coronavirus

 

The Company’s operations have been affected by the recent and ongoing outbreak of the coronavirus disease  (COVID-19) which in March 2020, was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. The ultimate disruption which may be caused by the outbreak is uncertain; however, it may result in a material adverse impact on the Company’s financial position, operations and cash flows. Possible areas that may be affected include, but are not limited to, disruption to the Company’s customers and revenue, including a significant disruption in consumer demand and accessories, labor workforce, inability of customers to pay outstanding accounts receivable due and owing to the Company as they limit or shut down their businesses, customers seeking relief or  extended payment plans relating to accounts receivable due and owing to the Company, unavailability of products and supplies used in operations, and the decline in value of assets held by the Company, including property and equipment. As such, the


F-6


comparability of the Company's operating results has been affected by significant adverse impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

 

The Company has increased its online presence to minimize the impact of having to close its retail stores as well as directing efforts towards its wholesale operations.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, which contemplates continuation of the Company as a going concern.

 

The Company has suffered recurring losses, and at December 31, 2020, the Company had a stockholders’ deficit of $171,048. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had only $70,081 cash on hand and $545,170 in convertible debt and loans payable on December 31, 2020. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The recoverability of a major portion of the recorded asset amounts shown in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet is dependent upon continued operations of the Company, which in turn, is dependent upon the Company's ability to raise capital and/or generate positive cash flows from operations.

 

In addition to obtaining new customers and increasing sales to existing customers, management plans to achieve profitability by also establishing Bergio as a holding company for the purpose of establishing retails stores worldwide. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence.

 

On February 10, 2021, Bergio International, Inc. entered into an Acquisition Agreement with Digital Age Business, Inc., a Florida corporation, (“Digital Age”), pursuant to which the shareholders of Digital Age  agreed to sell all of the assets and liabilities of its Aphrodite’s business to a recently formed wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company known as Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc., a Wyoming corporation in exchange for newly created Series B Preferred Stock of the Company, which collectively, shall be convertible at Shareholders’ option, at any time, in whole or in part, into that number of shares of common stock of the Company which shall equal thirty percent (30%) of the total issued and outstanding common stock of the Company (as determined at the earlier of (i) the date of conversion of the Series B Preferred Stock; and (ii) eighteen (18) months following the Closing). In addition, the Company will provide an additional $5,000,000 in financing for Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc. (See Note to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional detail and Form 8-K file with the SEC on February 17, 2021.

 

The funding for this acquisition will be a combination of proceeds from the issuance of common stock from our S-1 Registration Statement and debt.

 

Aphrodite is expected to increase our online presence and provide for expansion of the Bergio Brand. Aphrodite is a one-stop shop for jewelry, gifts, and surprises for any occasion. The online store provides for a unique gifting experience in the ecommerce space. With their technological experience in ecommerce, we expect to grow the Bergio Brand, and in conjunction with Bergio’s design expertise and years of experience in the jewelry industry, we believe we can successfully grow the business. We are now amassing one of the best teams and technology in this space. However, there can be no assurance that this venture will be successful or that the Company can raise the required capital to fund this operation.

 

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Principles of Consolidation:

 

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and include the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary. All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 


F-7


 

Use of Estimates:

 

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

 

Risks and Uncertainties:

 

The Company’s operations are subject to a number of risks, including but not limited to changes in the general economy, demand for the Company’s products, and the success of its customers.

 

Revenue Recognition:

 

Revenues are recognized at the time of shipment to with the price to the buyer being fixed and determinable and collectability assured, provided title and risk of loss is transferred to the customer. Provisions, when appropriate, are made where the right to return exists.

 

Shipping and handling costs charged to customers are classified as sales, and the shipping and handling costs incurred are included in cost of sales.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments:

 

The Company estimates that the fair value of all financial instruments at December 31, 2020 and, 2019, as defined in FASB ASC 825 “Financial Instruments”, does not differ materially, except for the items discussed below, from the aggregate carrying values of its financial instruments recorded in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. The estimated fair value amounts have been determined by the Company using available market information and appropriate valuation methodologies. Considerable judgment is required in interpreting market data to develop the estimates of fair value.

 

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets as of December 31, 2020 and 2019 for cash, accounts receivable, inventories and accounts payable and loans payable approximate the fair value because of the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments. Each reporting period we evaluate market conditions including available interest rates, credit spreads relative to our credit rating and liquidity in estimating the fair value of our debt. After considering such market conditions, we estimate that the fair value of debt approximates its carrying value.

 

Accounting for Income Taxes:

 

The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability method described in FASB ASC 740, “Income Taxes”. Deferred tax assets arise from a variety of sources, the most significant being as follows: a) tax losses that can be carried forward to be utilized against profits in future years; b) expenses recognized for financial reporting purposes but disallowed in the tax return until the associated cash flow occurs; and c) valuation changes of assets which need to be tax effected for book purposes but are deductible only when the valuation change is realized.

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using enacted tax rates and laws that are expected to be in effect when such differences are expected to reverse. The measurement of deferred tax assets is reduced, if necessary, by a valuation allowance for any tax benefit which is not more likely than not to be realized. In assessing the need for a valuation allowance, future taxable income is estimated, considering the realization of tax loss carryforwards. Valuation allowances related to deferred tax assets can also be affected by changes to tax laws, changes to statutory tax rates and future taxable income levels. In the event it was determined that the Company would not be able to realize all or a portion of our deferred tax assets in the future, we would reduce such amounts through a charge to income in the period in which that determination is made. Conversely, if we were to determine that we would be able to realize our deferred tax assets in the future in excess of the net carrying amounts, we would decrease the recorded valuation allowance through an increase to income in the period in which that determination is made.


F-8


 

Income Tax Uncertainties:

 

The Company accounts for uncertainties in income taxes under ASC 740-10-50 which prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. ASC 740-10 requires that the Company determine whether the benefits of its tax positions are more-likely-than-not of being sustained upon audit based on the technical merits of the tax position. The Company recognizes the impact of an uncertain income tax position taken on its income tax return at the largest amount that is more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon audit by the relevant taxing authority. The implementation of ASC 740-10 had no impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

 

Despite the Company’s belief that its tax return positions are consistent with applicable tax laws, one or more positions may be challenged by taxing authorities. Settlement of any challenge can result in no change, a complete disallowance, or some partial adjustment reached through negotiations or litigation.

 

Interest and penalties related to income tax matters, if applicable, will be recognized as income tax expense. During the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company did not incur any expense related to interest or penalties for income tax matters, and no such amounts were accrued as of December 31, 2020 and 2019.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents:

 

Cash equivalents are comprised of certain highly liquid instruments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased. The Company did not have any cash equivalents on hand at December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

 

Accounts Receivable:

 

Accounts receivable are generated from sales of fine jewelry to retail outlets throughout the United States. At December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, accounts receivable were substantially comprised of balances due from retailers.

 

The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers and adjusts credit limits based on customer payment and current credit worthiness, as determined by review of their current credit information. The Company continuously monitors credit limits for and payments from its customers and maintains provision for estimated credit losses based on its historical experience and any specific customer issues that have been identified. While such credit losses have historically been within the Company’s expectation and the provision established, the Company cannot guarantee that this will continue.

 

An allowance for doubtful accounts is provided against accounts receivable for amounts management believes may be uncollectible. The Company determines the adequacy of this allowance by regularly reviewing the composition of its accounts receivable aging and evaluating individual customer receivables, considering the customer’s financial condition, credit history and current economic circumstance. The Company historically has been able to collect the accounts receivable balance during a period of nine months to a year. While credit losses have historically been within the Company’s expectation and the provision established, the Company cannot guarantee that this will continue. As of December 31, 2020 and 2019, the allowance for doubtful accounts was $-0- and $-0-, respectively.

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk:

 

Cash Held in Banks: The Company maintains cash balances at a financial institution that is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to federally insured limits. At times balances may exceed FDIC insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts.

 

Accounts Receivable: The Company’s customer base is primarily comprised of balances due from retailers. Concentrations of credit risk with respect to accounts receivable is limited due to the wide variety of customers and markets into which the Company’s services are provided, as well as their dispersion across many different geographical areas. The Company has been expanding its brand into retail stores. These sales come with a lower degree of credit risk as these sales are made by cash or credit card. As is characteristic of the Company’s business and of the jewelry industry generally, the Company extends its customers seasonal credit terms.  The carrying amount of receivables approximates fair value. The Company routinely assesses the financial strength of its customers and believes its credit risk exposure on accounts receivable is limited. Based on management’s review of


F-9


accounts receivable, an allowance for doubtful accounts is recorded, if appropriate. The Company does not require collateral to support these financial instruments.

 

Inventories:

 

Inventories consist primarily of finished goods and are stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined using the weighted average method, and average cost is recomputed after each inventory purchase or sale. Inventories are written down if the estimated net realizable value is less than the recorded value, if appropriate. The Company reviews the carrying cost of inventories by product to determine the adequacy of reserves for obsolescence. In accounting for inventories, the Company must make estimates regarding the estimated realizable value of inventory. The estimate is based, in part, on the Company’s forecasts of future sales and age of inventory.

 

Subsequent Events:

 

The Company evaluated subsequent events, which are events or transactions that occurred after December 31, 2020 through the issuance of the accompanying financial statements.

 

Property and Equipment:

 

Equipment is stated at cost, net of accumulated depreciation.  Depreciation and amortization are provided on a straight-line basis over periods ranging from 5 to 10 years.

 

Leasehold improvements are amortized over the term of the lease or the useful life of the asset, whichever is shorter.

 

Maintenance, repairs, and renewals that do not materially add to the value of the equipment nor appreciably prolong its life are charged to expense as incurred.

 

When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and the resulting gain or loss is included in the Statement of Operations.

 

Long-Lived Assets:

 

The Company assesses the recoverability of the carrying value of its long-lived assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to future, undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by an asset. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell. No impairment losses were recognized for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.

 

Investment in Unconsolidated Affiliates:

 

The Company owns less than 20% or otherwise does not exercise significant influence, are stated at cost. At December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had an investment in which the Company owned less than 1% interest in an unconsolidated affiliate and therefore the investment is carried at cost.

 

Equity-Based Compensation:

 

The Company accounts for equity-based compensation transactions with employees under the provisions of ASC Topic No. 718, “Compensation: Stock Compensation” (“Topic No. 718”). Topic No. 718 requires the recognition of the fair value of equity-based compensation in net income. The fair value of common stock issued for compensation is measured at the market price on the date of grant. The fair value of the Company’s equity instruments, other than common stocks, is estimated using a Black-Scholes option valuation model. This model requires the input of highly subjective assumptions and elections including expected stock price volatility and the estimated life of each award. In addition, the calculation of equity-based compensation costs requires that the Company estimate the number of awards that will be forfeited during the vesting period. The fair value of equity-based awards granted to employees is amortized over the vesting period of the award and the Company elected to use the straight-line method for awards granted after the adoption of Topic No. 718.

 


F-10


The Company accounts for equity-based transactions with non-employees under the provisions of ASC Topic No. 505-50, “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees” (“Topic No. 505-50”). Topic No. 505-50 establishes that equity-based payment transactions with non-employees shall be measured at the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The fair value of common stock issued for payments to non-employees is measured at the market price on the date of grant. The fair value of equity instruments, other than common stock, is estimated using the Black-Scholes option valuation model. In general, the Company recognizes an asset or expense in the same manner as if it was to pay cash for the goods or services instead of paying with or using the equity instrument.

 

Net (Loss) Income per Common Share:

 

Basic net (loss) income per share attributable to common stockholders is computed by dividing net (loss) income by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted income per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, including common stock equivalents, such as stock options and warrants using the treasury stock method. Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period and excludes the anti-dilutive effects of common stock equivalents.

 

Recently Adopted Authoritative Pronouncements

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes - simplifying the accounting for income taxes (Topic 740), which is meant to simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740, Income Taxes. The amendment also improves consistent application and simplify GAAP for other areas of Topic 740 by clarifying and amending existing guidance. We do not expect the adoption of this standard to have a significant impact on our financial position and results of operations.

 

No other recently issued accounting pronouncements had or are expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

Note 3. Basic and Diluted Income (Loss) Per Share

 

Net loss per share has been computed according to FASB ASC 260, “Earnings per Share,” which requires a dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”). Basic EPS represents net loss divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during a reporting period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities, including warrants and options, were converted into common stock. The dilutive effect of outstanding warrants, options, and/or conversions is reflected in earnings per share by use of the treasury stock method. In applying the treasury stock method for stock-based compensation arrangements, the assumed proceeds are computed as the sum of the amount the employee must pay upon exercise. For the years ended December 31. 2020 and 2019, basic net loss per share equaled the diluted loss per share, since the effect of shares potentially issuable upon exercise or conversion was anti-dilutive. For the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, 92,755,675 and 10,108,052 shares, respectively, issuable upon the conversion of convertible debt were not included in the computation of diluted net loss because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

On September 30, 2018, the Principal Executive Office signed an agreement with the Company extending payments in the amount of $1,000,000 due him until January 31, 2020 as a result of the financial situation of the Company. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the principal executive officer converted $500,000 of deferred compensation for common stock of the Company. As of December 31, 2020, deferred compensation of $320,172 and $179,828 of the advances, totaling $500,000, was classified as a long-term liability. Interest expense is accrued at an average annual market rate of interest which was 3.25% and 4.75% at December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Interest expense due to such officer was $52,494 and $45,392 for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Accrued interest was $216,527 and $202,487 at December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. No terms for repayment have been established.

 

Effective February 28, 2010, the Company entered into an employment agreement with its PEO. The agreement, which is for a five year term, provides for an initial base salary of $175,000 per year with a 3% annual increase thereafter (the “Base Salary”). The PEO is also entitled to certain bonuses based on net profits before taxes and other customary benefits, as defined in the agreement. In addition, since it is understood that the Company is employing the PEO during a time of economic decline throughout the U.S. and at times and from time to time, the Company may not be in a position to pay the full amount of Base Salary owed the PEO it is understood and agreed to by the Board, that as long as the Company is unable to pay the CEO the full amount of his Base Salary that the Board shall issue to him, from time to time, an amount of shares that will allow him to remain in possession of fifty-one percent

(51%) of the Company’s then outstanding shares of common stock.  Such issuances shall be made to the PEO at any time when his total share holdings are reduced to an amount less than fifty-one percent (51%) as a result of issuance of shares of common stock made on behalf of the Company.

 

Effective September 1, 2011, the Company and PEO entered into an Amended and Restated Employment Agreement (the “Amended Agreement”) which primarily retains the term and compensation of the original agreement. The Amended Agreement, however, removes the section which previously provided for the issuance of Company common stock to the CEO, from time to time, when the Company is unable to pay the CEO the full amount of his Base Salary (as defined in the Amended Agreement) which would allow the CEO to maintain a fifty-one percent (51%) share of the Company’s outstanding common stock. However, the CEO does have the right to request all or a portion of his unpaid Base Salary be paid with the Company’s restricted common stock. In addition, the Amended Agreement provides for the issuance of 51 shares of newly authorized Series A Preferred Stock to be issued to the CEO. As defined in the Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of the Series A Preferred Stock, each share of Series A Preferred Stock has voting rights such that the holder of 51 shares of Series A Preferred Stock will effectively maintain majority voting control of the Company. Effective November 3, 2011, the CEO notified the Company that for the one year period, retroactive from April 1, 2011, through December 31, 2012, he would reduce his Base Salary to $100,000. The reduction in base compensation was subsequently extended to December 31, 2013. The CEO is currently deferring his salary to conserve cash. Deferred wages due to the CEO amounted to $445,571 and $345,571 for the periods ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. This amount was reduced to $500,000 after the PEO converted $500,000 of deferred compensation into 17,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company. The CEO in December 2020 returned these shares to the Company. As of December 31, 2020 and 2019, $320,172 and $297,513, respectively, of these amounts were classified as a long-term liability.

Under the terms of the CARES Act, PPP loan recipients can apply for and be granted forgiveness for all or a portion of loan granted under the program. Such forgiveness will be determined, subject to limitations, based on the use of loan proceeds for payment of payroll costs and any payments of mortgage interest, rent, and utilities. No assurance is provided that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the PPP Loan in whole or in part. The PPP Loan had a two-year term and bears interest at a rate of 0.98% per annum. Monthly principal and interest payments are deferred for nine months after the date of disbursement. The PPP Loan may be prepaid at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties. Based on the September 5, 2020 the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act, certain changes will need to be made to the original Note, based on the new law. As of December 31, 2020, the PPP Loan was forgiven by the SBA.

Note 11. Income Taxes

 

The recognized deferred tax asset is based upon the expected utilization of its benefit from future taxable income. The Company has federal net operating loss (“NOL”) carryforwards of approximately $5,025,000 as of December 31, 2019, expiring through various dates through 2036.

 

The foregoing amounts are management’s estimates and the actual results could differ from those estimates. Future profitability in this competitive industry depends on continually obtaining and fulfilling new profitable sales agreements and modifying products. The inability to increase sales could reduce estimates of future profitability, which could affect the Company’s ability to realize the deferred tax assets. Significant components of the Company’s deferred tax assets and liabilities are summarized as follows:

Note 12. Commitments

 

Business Interruption

 

The Company has been impacted by public health crises beyond its control. The pandemic caused the Company to close its retail stores for a period of time which negatively impacted sales of its products. The Company’s customers and suppliers also experienced similar disruption. In December 2019, a novel strain of the Coronavirus, COVID-19, was reported to have surfaced in Wuhan, China, which has evolved into a pandemic. This situation and preventative or protective actions that governments have taken to counter the effects of the pandemic have resulted in a period of business disruption, including delays in shipments of products and raw materials. COVID-19 has spread to over 175 countries, including the United States, and efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 have intensified. To the extent the impact of COVID-19 continues or worsens, the demand for the Company’s products may be negatively impacted. COVID-19 has also impacted the Company’s sales efforts as it has been forced to shut down its two New Jersey retail stores. The Company’s ability to promote sales through promotional activities has also been constrained. Trade shows and sales conferences, major events used to introduce and sell the Company’s products, have been postponed indefinitely. The length and severity of the pandemic also affected the Company’s wholesale sales, which in turn resulted in reduced sales and a lower gross margin.

 

Note 13. Litigation

 

The Company is currently not involved in any litigation that it believes could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations. There is no action, suit, proceeding, inquiry or investigation before or by any court, public board, government agency, self-regulatory organization or body pending or, to the knowledge of the executive officers of our company or any of our subsidiaries, threatened against or affecting our company, our common stock, any of our subsidiaries or of our companies or our subsidiaries’ officers or directors in their capacities as such, in which an adverse decision could have a material adverse effect.

 

Note 14. Significant Customer Concentrations

 

During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company had two customers, each over 5% of sales, which accounted for 23% of total sales. No other single customer accounted for over 5% or more of our annual sales.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company had four customers, each over 5% of sales, which accounted for 32% of total sales. No other single customer accounted for over 5% or more of our annual sales.

 

As of December 31, 2020, accounts receivable, net amounted to only $100,255 and three customers represented 89% of this balance.

 

As of December 31, 2019, accounts receivable, net amounted to only $85,711 and two customers represented 84% of this balance.

 

Note 15. Fair Value Measurements

 

FASB ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements” defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value under generally accepted accounting principles and prescribes disclosures about fair value measurements.


F-22


 

As defined in ASC 820, fair value is 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 (exit price). The Company utilizes market data or assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, including assumptions about risk and the risks inherent in the inputs to the valuation technique. These inputs can be readily observable, market corroborated, or generally unobservable. The Company classifies fair value balances based on the observability of those inputs. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs 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 measurement) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurement).

 

The three levels of the fair value hierarchy defined by ASC 820 are as follows:

 

Level 1 - Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date. Active markets are those in which transactions for the asset or liability occur in sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis. Level 1 primarily consists of financial instruments such as exchange-traded derivatives, marketable securities and listed equities.

 

Level 2 - Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets included in level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reported date. Level 2 includes those financial instruments that are valued using models or other valuation methodologies. These models are primarily industry-standard models that consider various assumptions, including quoted forward prices for commodities, time value, volatility factors, and current market and contractual prices for the underlying instruments, as well as other relevant economic measures. Substantially all of these assumptions are observable in the marketplace throughout the full term of the instrument, can be derived from observable data or are supported by observable levels at which transactions are executed in the marketplace. Instruments in this category generally include non-exchange-traded derivatives such as commodity swaps, interest rate swaps, options and collars.

 

Level 3 - Pricing inputs include significant inputs that are generally less observable from objective sources. These inputs may be used with internally developed methodologies that result in management’s best estimate of fair value.

 

The valuation techniques that may be used to measure fair value are as follows:

 

Market approach - Uses prices and other relevant information generated by market transactions involving identical or comparable assets or liabilities

 

Income approach - Uses valuation techniques to convert future amounts to a single present amount based on current market expectations about those future amounts, including present value techniques, option-pricing models and excess earnings method

 

Cost approach - Based on the amount that currently would be required to replace the service capacity of an asset (replacement cost)

 

The carrying value of the Company’s borrowings is a reasonable estimate of its fair value as borrowings under the Company’s credit facility have variable rates that reflect currently available terms and conditions for similar debt.

 

The Company’s assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement requires judgment, and may affect the valuation of fair value assets and liabilities and their placement within the fair value hierarchy levels. As required by FASB ASC 820, financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The Company has no assets or liabilities that are required to be classified.

 

In addition, the FASB issued, “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. This guidance expands opportunities to use fair value measurements in financial reporting and permits entities to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value.  The Company did not elect the fair value option for any of its qualifying financial instruments.

 


F-23


 

The following table sets forth by level within the fair value hierarchy the Company’s financial assets and liabilities that were accounted for at fair value as of December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019. As required by FASB ASC 820, financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Note 16. Operating Lease Liability

 

The Company leases certain office and manufacturing facilities and equipment.

 

Currently, we lease a 1,730 square feet in Fairfield, NJ for our offices. The lease expired in August 31, 2010, and is being renewed on a month-to-month basis.

 

Rent expense for the Company's operating leases for year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 amounted to approximately $39,460 and $53,919, respectively.

 

The Company leases retail space at two different locations. One lease has monthly payments from $1,350 to $1,665 which expires in May 2024. The second lease has a contingent rental based on 10% of sales. Contingent rentals are not included in operating lease liabilities. The Company's leases generally do not provide an implicit rate, and therefore the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate as the discount rate when measuring operating lease liabilities. The incremental borrowing rate represents an estimate of the interest rate the Company would incur at lease commencement to borrow an amount equal to the lease payments on a collateralized basis over the term of a lease. The Company used incremental borrowing rates as of January 1, 2019 for operating leases that commenced prior to that date. The Company estimated its incremental borrowing rate based on its credit quality, line of credit agreement and by comparing interest rates available in the market for similar borrowings. The Company used a discount rate of 10% at December 31, 2020.

 

The following table reconciles the undiscounted future minimum lease payments (displayed by year in aggregate) under non-cancelable operating leases with terms more than one year to the total operating lease liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020:

Note 17. Subsequent Events

 

On December 1, 2020, Bergio International, Inc. (the “Company”) announced a new multi-phase buyback program. Under this initial phase of the repurchase program, the Company’s CEO, Berge Abajian, will buy from the open market at least $50,000 and up to $100,000 of Company common stock. Repurchases will be made at management's discretion at prices management considers to be attractive and in the best interests of both the Company and its shareholders, subject to the availability of stock, general market conditions, the trading price of the stock, alternative uses for capital, and the Company's financial performance. Open market purchases will be conducted in accordance with the limitations set forth in Rule 10b-18 of the SEC and other applicable legal requirements.

 

The repurchase program may be suspended, terminated, or modified at any time for any reason, including market conditions, the cost of repurchasing shares, the availability of alternative investment opportunities, liquidity, and other factors deemed appropriate. These factors may also affect the timing and amount of share repurchases. The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to purchase any particular number of shares.

 

On February 10, 2021, Bergio International, Inc. entered into an Acquisition Agreement with Digital Age Business, Inc., a Florida corporation, (“Digital Age”), pursuant to which the shareholders of Digital Age  agreed to sell all of the assets and liabilities of its Aphrodite’s business to a recently formed wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company known as Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc., a Wyoming corporation in exchange for newly created Series B Preferred Stock of the Company, which collectively, shall be convertible at Shareholders’ option, at any time, in whole or in part, into that number of shares of common stock of the Company which shall equal thirty percent (30%) of the total issued and outstanding common stock of the Company (as determined at the earlier of (i) the date of conversion of the Series B Preferred Stock; and (ii) eighteen (18) months following the Closing). In addition, the Company will provide an additional $5,000,000 in financing for Aphrodite’s Marketing, Inc.

As additional consideration for the purchase of the Acquired Assets, BRGO has also agreed to transfer to the Selling Shareholders 49,000 of the 100,000 authorized shares of the Acquisition Sub, such that upon the Closing Date, 51% of the Acquisition Sub shall be owned by BRGO, and 49% of the Acquisition Sub shall be owned by the Selling Shareholders.

 

Under the terms of the Acquisition Agreement, the Acquisition Sub is expected to meet the adjusted financial projections as set forth on Schedule “D” to the Acquisition Agreement, in order to earn additional Series B Preferred shares, which if earned, shall entitle the Selling Shareholders to earn up to an additional 19% (the “Additional Shares”) of Series B Preferred Stock, which, including the 30% of Series B Preferred Stock issued at Closing, shall together convert up to a maximum of 49% of BRGO’s then-issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock, with the Additional Shares being subject to a two-year vesting period from the date of issuance, based upon additional revenues of Acquisition Sub, as set forth on Schedule “E” to the Acquisition Agreement.

 

In addition, the Acquisition Agreement requires that upon Closing, Jonathan Foltz, the President and CEO of Digital Age, and certain other key employees of Acquisition Sub shall receive employment agreements from Acquisition Sub with respect to their continued employment (the “Employment Agreements”) (which will allow such key employees to participate in any employee stock ownership plan (“ESOP”) as offered to other BRGO subsidiary employees from time to time) to make certain that current personnel operating the business of Aphrodites.com shall remain in place for all departments of the business of Aphrodite’s post-Closing of the Acquisition.

As further consideration for the Acquisition, under Section 2.2.1 of the Acquisition Agreement, BRGO has agreed to provide Acquisition Sub with certain financing, as follows (a) upon the signing of the Letter of Intent that preceded this Acquisition Agreement, BRGO provided loans to Jonathan Foltz for the benefit of Aphrodites.com in the amounts of $50,000 on January 22, 2021, $35,000 on January 27, 2021, and $50,000 on February 5, 2021, which were used to pay some of the most pressing of Aphrodite’s Liabilities of as evidenced by the three promissory notes set forth on Schedule “H” therein (b) and upon the signing of this Acquisition Agreement, BRGO or its investors will provide equity financing of $615,000 for the benefit of Acquisition Sub, (for which BRGO shall enter into a certain Securities Purchase Agreement, Convertible Promissory Note, Warrant, Guaranty, Security Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement (together, the “BRGO Transaction Documents”), (the “Initial Financing”) which will be used to pay for (i) partial extinguishing the Assumed Liabilities set forth in Schedule “B” thereto, and (ii) expenses in connection with the Acquisition and the Audit of Acquisition Sub;  (c) and following the Closing of the Acquisition, BRGO will facilitate a second equity financing for the benefit of the Acquisition Sub in the amount of an additional $750,000, which shall take place following the effective date of BRGO’s new S-1 Registration Statement (the “Second Financing”), and such funds shall be utilized, in part, to pay for (i) extinguishing the Assumed Liabilities set forth in Schedule “B” thereto, and (ii) the expenses incurred in connection with the Acquisition and the Audit of Acquisition Sub and (d) following the Closing, BRGO will raise an additional $3,500,000, the proceeds of which will be used for the Acquisition Sub, by the sale of shares of common stock of BRGO, pursuant to an S-1 Registration Statement (the “Additional Financing”). It is anticipated that the Additional Financing will be consummated in tranches over the twelve (12) months following the Closing; provided that the first tranche of the Additional Financing will be at least $750,000, and will be provided to the Acquisition Sub within 60 days after BRGO’s new S-1 Registration Statement is declared effective by the SEC. As noted on Schedule D and Schedule E to the Acquisition Agreement, the foregoing financing, (including the loans shown on Schedule H, the Initial Financing, the Second Financing and the Additional Financing) totals $5,000,000, and any financing provided to Acquisition Sub, which exceeds the $5,000,000 total detailed in this Section 2.2.1, shall be added to the Gross Revenue benchmarks set forth on Schedule D and Schedule E to the Acquisition Agreement.

 

Section 2.2.2 of the Acquisition Agreement further provides that, at the Closing of the Acquisition, Southridge (or its affiliates as directed by Southridge) shall receive shares of BRGO’s newly created Series C Preferred Stock which, collectively, shall be convertible into that number of shares of common stock of the Company which shall equal five percent (5%) of the total issued and outstanding shares of BRGO Common Stock (as determined at the earlier of: (i) the date of conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock; and (ii) eighteen (18) months following the Closing).  The proposed Certificate of Designation for the Series C Preferred share is set forth on Schedule “G” to the Acquisition Agreement.

 

On February 11, 2021, the Company, Digital Age, Acquisition Sub, and the Selling Shareholders entered into the First Amendment to the February 10, 2021 Acquisition Agreement (the “Amendment”) for the purpose of allocating the Series B Preferred Stock to the Selling Shareholders without fractional shares, which resulted in changing the Certificate of Designation for the Series B Preferred Stock to reflect a total of 4,900 authorized shares of Series B Preferred Stock, and for the purpose of reflecting a total of 3,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock to be issued to the Selling Shareholders upon Closing, (and the opportunity for the Selling Shareholders to earn up to an additional 1,900 shares of Series B Preferred Stock upon reaching certain gross revenue benchmarks); and the new Certificate of Designation for the Series B Preferred Stock of BRGO was attached to the Amendment as “Schedule Amendment-C”, and shows in Section 1 thereof the increase in authorized shares from 49 to 4,900, and in Section 5 thereof, the conversion language changed accordingly so that the holders thereof shall have, in the aggregate, the same conversion rights as previously stated in the Acquisition Agreement.  Other than as expressly set forth in the Amendment, all other terms and conditions of the Acquisition Agreement were unchanged, and remain in full force and effect.

 

The Closing of the Acquisition is subject to the entry of Acquisition Sub into the Employment Agreements with Jonathan Foltz and other key employees, the Company’s raising certain financing for the benefit of the Acquisition Sub, as referenced in Section 2.2.1 of the Acquisition Agreement, and to increasing the Company’s authorized shares of Common Stock, the creation and issuance of the Company’s Series B and Series C Preferred Stock, and the transfer of 49,000 shares of the Acquisition Sub’s Common Stock from BRGO to the Selling Shareholders, all of which is described in more detail in a Schedule 14 which the Company filed with the SEC on February 24, 2021, and which is included as Exhibit 10.15 herein.

Item 9. Changes in and Disagreements with Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure

 

There are no reportable events under this item for the year ended December 31, 2020.

 

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures

 

a) Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports we file pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) are recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our Principal Executive Officer (“PEO”) and Principal Financial Officer (“PFO”), to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can only provide a reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and in reaching a reasonable level of assurance, management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Management designed the disclosure controls and procedures to provide reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives.

 

We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our PEO and PFO, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this Annual Report. Based upon that evaluation, the PEO and PFO concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.

 

b) Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in the Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f). A system of 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 accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of management, including the principal executive officer and the principal financial officer, the Company’s management has evaluated the effectiveness of its internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2020, based on the criteria established in a report entitled “Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission” and the interpretive guidance issued by the Commission in Release No. 34-55929. Based on this evaluation, the Company’s management has evaluated and concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was ineffective as of December 31, 2020, and identified the following material weaknesses:

 

·there is a lack of accounting personnel with the requisite knowledge of GAAP and the financial reporting requirements of the SEC. 

 

·there are insufficient written policies and procedures to insure the correct application of accounting and financial reporting with respect to the current requirements of GAAP and SEC disclosure requirements. 

 

·there is a lack of segregation of duties, in that we only had one person performing all accounting-related duties. 

 

Notwithstanding the existence of these material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting, our management believes that the financial statements included in its reports fairly present in all material respects the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.

 

The Company will continue its assessment on a quarterly basis. We plan to hire personnel and resources to address these material weaknesses. We believe these issues can be solved with hiring accounting support and plan to do so as soon as we have funds available for this.


23


 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting.  The Company’s registered public accounting firm was not required to issue an attestation on its internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Company will continue to evaluate the effectiveness of internal controls and procedures on an on-going basis.

 

c) Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act) during the year ended December 31, 2020, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

The following table and text sets forth the names and ages of all our directors and executive officers and our key management personnel as of March 26, 2021. All of our directors serve until the next annual meeting of stockholders and until their successors are elected and qualified, or until their earlier death, retirement, resignation or removal.

Name (age)

 

Position

 

Year First

Elected a Director

Berge Abajian (57)

 

Chief Executive Officer and Chairman

 

2007

 

Background of Directors and Officers

 

Berge Abajian became the Chief Executive Officer of Bergio International in October 2009. Prior to that, Mr. Abajian served as CEO of the Diamond Information Institute, the predecessor company to Bergio, from 1988 to October 2009. Mr. Abajian has a BS in Business Administration from Fairleigh Dickinson University and is well known and respected in the jewelry industry. Since 2005, Mr. Abajian has served as the President of the East Coast branch of the Armenian Jewelry Association and has also served as a Board Member on MJSA (Manufacturing Jewelers and Suppliers of America), New York Jewelry Association, and the 2001-2002 Luxury Show.

 

Term of Office

 

Our directors are appointed for a one-year term to hold office until the next annual general meeting of our shareholders or until removed from office in accordance with our bylaws. Our officers are appointed by our board of directors and hold office until removed by the board, except to the extent governed by an employment agreement.

 

Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings

 

To the best of our knowledge, during the past ten years, none of the following occurred with respect to our present or former director, executive officer, or employee: (1) any bankruptcy petition filed by or against any business of which such person was a general partner or executive officer either at the time of the bankruptcy or within two years prior to that time; (2) any conviction in a criminal proceeding or being subject to a pending criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations and other minor offenses); (3) being subject to any order, judgment or decree, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any court of competent jurisdiction, permanently or temporarily enjoining, barring, suspending or otherwise limiting his or her involvement in any type of business, securities or banking activities; and (4) being found by a court of competent jurisdiction (in a civil action), the SEC or the Commodities Futures Trading Commission to have violated a federal or state securities or commodities law, and the judgment has not been reversed, suspended or vacated.

 

Meetings of Our Board of Directors

 

Our Board did not hold any meetings during the most recently completed fiscal year end. Various matters were approved by written consent, which in each case was executed by the Board.

 

Committees of the Board

 

We do not currently have a compensation committee, nominating committee, or stock plan committee.


25


 

Audit Committee

 

We do not have a separately-designated standing audit committee. The entire Board performs the functions of an audit committee, but no written charter governs the actions of the Board when performing the functions of what would generally be performed by an audit committee. The Board approves the selection of our independent accountants and meets and interacts with the independent accountants to discuss issues related to financial reporting. In addition, the Board reviews the scope and results of the audit with the independent accountants, reviews with management and the independent accountants our annual operating results, considers the adequacy of our internal accounting procedures and considers other auditing and accounting matters including fees to be paid to the independent auditor and the performance of the independent auditor.

 

Nominating Committee

 

Our Board does not maintain a nominating committee. As a result, no written charter governs the director nomination process. Our size and the size of our Board, at this time, do not require a separate nominating committee.

 

When evaluating director nominees, our directors consider the following factors:

 

·the appropriate size of our board of directors; 

·our needs with respect to the particular talents and experience of our directors; 

·the knowledge, skills and experience of nominees, including experience in finance, administration or public service, in light of prevailing business conditions and the knowledge, skills and experience already possessed by other members of the Board; 

·experience in political affairs; 

·experience with accounting rules and practices; and 

·the desire to balance the benefit of continuity with the periodic injection of the fresh perspective provided by new Board members. 

 

Our goal is to assemble a Board that brings together a variety of perspectives and skills derived from high quality business and professional experience.

 

Other than the foregoing, there are no stated minimum criteria for director nominees, although the Board may also consider such other factors as it may deem are in our best interests as well as our stockholders. In addition, the Board identifies nominees by first evaluating the current members of the Board willing to continue in service. Current members of the Board with skills and experience that are relevant to our business and who are willing to continue in service are considered for re-nomination. If any member of the Board does not wish to continue in service or if the Board decides not to re-nominate a member for re-election, the Board then identifies the desired skills and experience of a new nominee in light of the criteria above. Current members of the Board are polled for suggestions as to individuals meeting the criteria described above. The Board may also engage in research to identify qualified individuals. To date, we have not engaged third parties to identify or evaluate or assist in identifying potential nominees, although we reserve the right in the future to retain a third party search firm, if necessary.

 

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

 

Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires the Company’s directors, executive officers and persons who beneficially own 10% or more of a class of securities registered under Section 12 of the Exchange Act to file reports of beneficial ownership and changes in beneficial ownership with the SEC. Directors, executive officers and greater than 10% stockholders are required by the rules and regulations of the SEC to furnish the Company with copies of all reports filed by them in compliance with Section 16(a).

 

Based solely on our review of certain reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the reports required to be filed with respect to transactions in our common stock during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, were timely


26


 

Code of Ethics

 

We do not currently have a code of ethics that applies to our Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Accounting Officer or Controller, or persons performing similar functions.  Because we have only limited business operations and four officers and directors, we believe a code of ethics would have limited utility. We intend to adopt such a code of ethics as our business operations expand and we have more directors, officers and employees.

 

Item 11. Executive Compensation.

 

Overview

 

The following is a discussion of our program for compensating our named executive officers and directors. Currently, we do not have a compensation committee, and as such, our board of directors is responsible for determining the compensation of our named executive officers.

 

Compensation Program Objectives and Philosophy

 

The primary goals of our policy of executive compensation are to attract and retain the most talented and dedicated executives possible, to assure that our executives are compensated effectively in a manner consistent with our strategy and competitive practice and to align executive compensation with the achievement of our short- and long-term business objectives.

 

The Board considers a variety of factors in determining compensation of executives, including their particular background and circumstances, such as their training and prior relevant work experience, their success in attracting and retaining savvy and technically proficient managers and employees, increasing our revenues, broadening our product line offerings, managing our costs and otherwise helping to lead our Company through a period of rapid growth.

 

In the near future, we expect that our Board will form a compensation committee charged with the oversight of executive compensation plans, policies and programs of our Company and with the full authority to determine and approve the compensation of our chief executive officer and make recommendations with respect to the compensation of our other executive officers. We expect that our compensation committee will continue to follow the general approach to executive compensation that we have followed to date, rewarding superior individual and company performance with commensurate compensation.

 

Employment Agreements

 

Effective February 28, 2010, the Company entered into an employment agreement with its PEO. The agreement, which is for a five year term, provides for an initial base salary of $175,000 per year with a 3% annual increase thereafter (the “Base Salary”). The PEO is also entitled to certain bonuses based on net profits before taxes and other customary benefits, as defined in the agreement. In addition, since it is understood that the Company is employing the PEO during a time of economic decline throughout the U.S. and at times and from time to time, the Company may not be in a position to pay the full amount of Base Salary owed the PEO it is understood and agreed to by the Board, that as long as the Company is unable to pay the CEO the full amount of his Base Salary that the Board shall issue to him, from time to time, an amount of shares that will allow him to remain in possession of fifty-one percent (51%) of the Company’s then outstanding shares of common stock.  Such issuances shall be made to the PEO at any time when his total share holdings are reduced to an amount less than fifty-one percent (51%) as a result of issuance of shares of common stock made on behalf of the Company.

27


time when his total share holdings are reduced to an amount less than fifty-one percent (51%) as a result of issuance of shares of common stock made on behalf of the Company.

 

Effective September 1, 2011, the Company and PEO entered into an Amended and Restated Employment Agreement (the “Amended Agreement”) which primarily retains the term and compensation of the original agreement. The Amended Agreement, however, removes the section which previously provided for the issuance of Company common stock to the CEO, from time to time, when the Company is unable to pay the CEO the full amount of his Base Salary (as defined in the Amended Agreement) which would allow the CEO to maintain a fifty-one percent (51%) share of the Company’s outstanding common stock.  However, the CEO does have the right to request all or a portion of his unpaid Base Salary be paid with the Company’s restricted common stock. In addition, the Amended Agreement provides for the issuance of 51 shares of newly authorized Series A Preferred Stock to be issued to the CEO. As defined in the Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of the Series A Preferred Stock, each share of Series A Preferred Stock has voting rights such that the holder of 51 shares of Series A Preferred Stock will effectively maintain majority voting control of the Company. Effective November 3, 2011, the CEO notified the Company that for the one year period, retroactive from April 1, 2011, through December 31, 2012, he would reduce his Base Salary to $100,000. The reduction in base compensation was subsequently extended to December 31, 2013. The CEO is currently deferring his salary to conserve cash. Deferred wages due to the CEO amounted to $445,571 and $345,571 for the periods ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. This amount was reduced to $500,000 after the PEO converted $500,000 of deferred compensation into 17,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company. The CEO in December 2020 returned these shares to the Company. As of December 31, 20 and 2019, $320,172 and $297,513, respectively, of these amounts were classified as a long-term liability.

 

Retirement Benefits

 

Currently, we do not provide any Company sponsored retirement benefits to any employee, including the named executive officers.

 

Perquisites

 

We have historically provided only modest perquisites to our named executive officers. We do not view perquisites as a significant element of our compensation structure, but do believe that perquisites can be useful in attracting, motivating and retaining the executive talent for which we compete. It is expected that our historical practices regarding perquisites will continue and will be subject to periodic review by our by our board of directors.

 

Summary Compensation Table

Each Option shall contain the following material terms:

(ii) the term of each Option shall be fixed by the Committee, provided that such Option shall not be exercisable more than ten (10) years after the date such Option is granted, andprovided further that with respect to an Incentive Option, if the recipient owns more than ten percent (10%) of the total combined voting power of the Company, the Incentive Stock Option shall not be exercisable more than five (5) years after the date such Incentive Option is granted;

 

(iii) subject to acceleration in the event of a Change of Control of the Company (as further described in the Plan), the period during which the Options vest shall be designated by the Committee or, in the absence of any Option vesting periods designated by the Committee at the time of grant, shall vest and become exercisable in equal amounts on each fiscal year of the Company through the five (5) year anniversary of the date on which the Option was granted;

 

(iv) no Option is transferable and each is exercisable only by the recipient of such Option except in the event of the death of the recipient; and

 

(v) with respect to Incentive Stock Options, the aggregate Fair Market Value of Common Stock that may be issued for the first time during any calendar year shall not exceed $100,000.

 

Each award of Restricted Stock is subject to the following material terms:

Changes in Control

 

We are not aware of any arrangements that may result in “changes in control” as that term is defined by the provisions of Item 403(c) of Regulation S-K.

 

Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence

 

The Company receives periodic advances from its principal executive officer based upon the Company’s cash flow needs. At December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, $211,141 and $383,717, respectively, was due to such officer, including accrued interest. On September 30, 2018, the Principal Executive Office signed an agreement with the Company extending payments in the amount of $1,000,000 due him until January 31, 2020 as a result of the financial situation of the Company. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the principal executive officer converted $500,000 of deferred compensation for common stock of the Company. As of December 31, 2020, deferred compensation of $320,172 and $179,828 of the advances, totaling $500,000, was classified as a long-term liability. Interest expense is accrued at an average annual market rate of interest which was 3.25% and 4.75% at December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Interest expense due to such officer was $52,494 and $45,392 for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Accrued interest was $216,527 and $202,487 at December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. No terms for repayment have been established.

Director Independence

 

The common stock of the Company is currently quoted on the OTC Markets, a quotation system which currently does not have director independence requirements.  On an annual basis, each director and executive officer will be obligated to disclose any transactions with the Company in which a director or executive officer, or any member of his or her immediate family, have a direct or indirect material interest in accordance with Item 407(a) of Regulation S-K. Following completion of these disclosures, the Board will make an annual determination as to the independence of each director using the current standards for “independence” that satisfy the criteria for the NASDAQ.

 

At this time, the Company does not have any independent directors.
