PART I

 

ITEM 1.  BUSINESS

 

Beyond Commerce, Inc. was formed in the State of Nevada on January 12, 2006.  The Company is currently no longer a “shell company” within the meaning of Rule 405, promulgated pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), because we have both significant assets and operations generating revenue through the Company’s acquisitions of Service 800, Inc, PathUX, and IdriveYourCar.

 

We currently operate within two markets: (1) the Business-to-Business Internet Marketing Technology and Services market and (2) the Information Management market. Our goal is to develop proprietary software for digital transformation of clients’ existing content. We believe our planned platform, strategy, and suite of software products and services will provide secure and scalable information control solutions for global companies. We believe our planned software will assist organizations in finding, utilizing, and sharing business information between devices in ways that are intuitive, efficient and productive. We believe that our business model will ensure that information will remain secure and private, as necessitated by the current market climate.

 

In addition, BYOC plans to provide solutions which facilitate the exchange of information and data transactions between supply chain participants, such as manufacturers, retailers, distributors and financial institutions. The goal is to automate potential client internal processes thereby increasing productivity and lowering costs. BYOC plans to develop proprietary algorithms which it will embed in its planned software to enable clients to access data and gain insight into their business, through that data, leading to improved internal decision making.

 

BYOC plans to offer the proposed software through traditional on-premise solutions, Software as a Service (“SaaS”), as a cloud-based solution, or a combination of on-premise, SaaS or cloud based solutions. We will work with our clients and their needs as to which delivery method they prefer. We believe giving clients a choice and flexibility will help us to obtain long-term client value.

 

Corporate History and Background

 

Beyond Commerce was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on, January 12, 2006, under the name “Reel Estate Services, Inc.” for the purposes of operating as a media hub for high traffic web properties, utilizing social networking and e-commerce.

 

On December 28, 2007, the Company entered into an agreement and plan of reorganization with its former shareholder and former sole officer and director, BOOMj.com, Inc. (“BOOMj”), and Time Lending Sub, Inc., a subsidiary of the Company (“Sub”) pursuant to which Sub merged with and into BOOMj.  As a result of the merger, the business of BOOMj became the business of the Company. BOOMj operated as a multi-faceted niche portal and social networking site targeting baby boomers and the Generation Jones demographics. Subsequently on January 14, 2008, the Company changed its name to “BOOMj, Inc.”

 

BOOMj’s operations migrated into an e-commerce platform known as i-SUPPLY, an online storefront that offered easy to use, fully customizable e-commerce services, and revenue solutions for any third-party website large or small, and hosted local ads, providing extensive reach for our proprietary advertising partner network platform.   On February 23, 2009, the Company changed its name to “Beyond Commerce, Inc.” and its ticker symbol to “BYOC” in order to better reflect its business strategy.

 

During the third quarter of 2009 the Company formed another subsidiary, KaChing KaChing, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“KaChing”).  KaChing operated an e-commerce platform which provided a complete turn-key e-commerce solution to third-party store owners. KaChing allowed individual online store owners the ability to create, manage and earn money from product sales generated from their individual webstores. On April 22, 2010, KaChing merged out of the Company and into Duke Mining Company, Inc. to become a new public company.  

 

As a result of the merger transaction, KaChing ceased to be a wholly-owned subsidiary, and BYOC’s interest in the outstanding capital stock of KaChing was reduced to 20.8%.  On April 17, 2013 Beyond Commerce’s ownership in KaChing was transferred back to Benjamin Mayer of the firm Mayer & Associates. During 2015, the Company wrote off its entire ownership stake in KaChing as a tax loss carry-forward.

On October 9, 2009, LocalAdLink Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“LocalAdLink”) sold its LocalAdLink Software (the “Software”) and all of their related assets, including the rights to the name LocalAdLink, the LocalAdLink trademark, the website domain “www.LocalAdLink.com” and a local search directory and advertising network that brings local advertising to geo-targeted consumers.  The Company continued to sell advertising services as it had prior to the inception of LocalAdLink, on a different scale and with a greater emphasis on business-to business sales.  As of December 31, 2017, the Company decided to close and remove this subsidiary from its financials going forward.

 

During the second quarter 2010, the Company entered into a share exchange agreement with all of the shareholders of Adjuice, Inc. (“Adjuice”), an online media and marketing company.  Pursuant to the agreement, the Company issued 5,100,000 shares of its common stock in exchange for all of the issued and outstanding stock of Adjuice.  The purchase of this transaction was to enhance the Company’s presence in the Ad Networking business. The Adjuice network distributed leads to over 350 retail clients along seven major sales verticals, all offering top payouts. Adjuice owned and managed over 120 sites, all optimized for brand recognition and conversion performance.  Adjuice had a solid infrastructure for selling its own products, targeting advertisers, publishers and their related downstream partners with Adjuice’s tailored lead generation programs. As of December 31, 2017, the Company decided to close and remove this subsidiary from its financials going forward.

 

On March 31, 2011, the Company acquired AIM Connection, Inc., a leading direct sales affiliate, SEO provider, social network and website generator. AIM Connection combines Internet marketing techniques and automation software, and allows all aspects of the marketing process to be controlled and managed by the client. As of December 31, 2017, the Company decided to close and remove this subsidiary from its financials going forward.

 

On July 28, 2011, a judgement with civil case number: 2:08-cv-00496-KJD-LRL was entered in favor of George Pursglove, the Company’s former CEO, from his counter suit against BOOMj.com, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Beyond Commerce, Inc. The judgement was in the amount of $20,775 for damages as to the claim for failure to pay wages, $3,000,000 for damages as to the conversion claim and $3,000,000 for punitive damages for a total of $6,020,775 (the “July Judgment”). The July Judgment accrues interest at a rate of 5.29% per annum. As of December 31, 2019, the total amount of principal and interest that was forgiven $8,360,244.    

 

In 2017, the Company reevaluated the commercial viability of its previous operations of all of the aforementioned subsidiaries and determined that many of these businesses were no longer viable. The Company discontinued the operations of the aforementioned subsidiaries as of December 31, 2017.

 

On April 27, 2017, the Company held a Special Meeting of Stockholders where the stockholders approved and ratified, among other things: (i) the reinstatement of Beyond Commerce with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada and the appointment of Mr. Pursglove as sole director; and (ii) the exchange of a portion of the July Judgment against Beyond Commerce into shares of common stock of the Company

 

On May 1, 2017, the Company issued Mr. Pursglove 1,556,632 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, reducing the July Judgment by $12,453.  On the same date, the Company authorized the designation of its “blank check” preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share, as Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Stock”).

 

Effective July 27, 2017, the Company filed a certificate of designation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada, pursuant to which it designated the Series A Preferred Stock. Each share of Series A Preferred Stock is convertible into one share of common stock.  In addition, each share of Series A Preferred Stock entitles its holder to (i) cumulative, non-participating dividends in preference and priority to any declaration or payment of a dividend on any of the Company’s common stock, at a rate of 12% per annum, and (ii) three times (3x) voting preference over common stock.  On the same date, the Company issued 250,000,000 shares of its Series A Preferred Stock to Mr. Pursglove, further reducing the award under the July Judgment owed to Mr. Pursglove by $250,000.

 

On February 13, 2018, we entered into a financial advisory agreement with Maxim Group, LLC, a leading full-service investment banking, securities and wealth management firm (“Maxim”), pursuant to which Maxim will provide certain advisory services, including strategic corporate planning, financial advisory and investment banking services. On May 31, 2018, we entered into a separate financial advisory agreement with Maxim, which effectively expanded the arrangement to include Maxim’s provision of mergers and acquisitions services, to include the sourcing of and negotiation with potential targets. Pursuant to the agreement, Maxim will assist in BYOC’s global expansion plan, and accelerate product growth and innovation. Additionally, Maxim, will among other things, assist the Company in its efforts to become

Although Mr. Pursglove was no longer here to lead BYOC, his vision and the direction that the Company was pursuing is to continue in earnest through the efforts of then President of the Company, Geordan Pursglove, as well its competent and sophisticated directors. Subsequently Geordan Pursglove became Beyond Commerce Chairperson and CEO

Business Overview and Strategy

 

We plan to focus on the acquisition of "big data" companies in the Business-to-Business (“B2B”) Internet Marketing Technology and Services (“IMT&S”) market and the Information Management (“IM”) market.

 

Market Dynamics IMT&S Segment

 

Market Opportunity: the B2B IMT&S industry is a highly fragmented $345.5 billion global market, with $195 billion derived from the United States, according to the December 2017 Magna Advertising Forecasts Winter Update.

 

§INTEGRATED SEARCH: Data from IBISWorld Search Engines – US Market Research Report, November 2017, indicates that the revenue for this sector was approximately $60 billion last year following five years of 8.8% average growth.  

 

§MARKET RESEARCH: this global industry segment generated $44.5 billion in revenues last year, as reported from data derived from Statista Business Services – Market Research Industry -- Statistics.  

 

§BUSINESS BIG DATA ANALYTICS: Industry wide revenues were $122 billion in 2015 with projected revenues reaching $187 Billion by 2019 according to InformationWeek’s Big Data.  

 

§INTERNET PUBLISHING AND BROADCASTING: $119 billion in revenues were generated last year following annual growth of 14.8% over the previous five years, as shown by data provided by IBISWorld Search Engines – US Market Research Report, November 2017.  

 

Our business objective is to develop, acquire, and deploy disruptive strategic software technology and market-changing business models through selling our own products and the acquisitions of existing companies. We plan to offer a cohesive digital product and services platform to provide our future clients with a single point of contact for all their IMT&S and IM initiatives.

 

Products and Services Overview

 

Our goal is to help companies and organizations derive value from their information. To do this, we intend to offer services and solutions such as Content Services, Business Process Management, Customer Experience Management, Discovery, Business Network, and Analytics.

With our planned products and services, we plan to deliver our customers the following:

 

(i)

Increased compliance and information governance resulting in reduced exposure to risk of regulatory sanctions related to how information is handled and protected;

 

 

(ii)

Improved operating efficiency through process digitization and automation;

 

 

 

 

(iii)

Better customer engagement through improved and integrated digital experiences and content delivery;

 

(iv)

Lower cost of electronic storage and management of information through improved classification and archiving strategies;

 

 

(v)

Reduced infrastructure costs due to, among other factors, legacy decommissioning capabilities of BYOC and cloud and hosted services deployment models;

 

 

(vi)

Improved innovation, productivity and time-to-market as a result of letting employees, trading partners and customers work with information and collaborate in ways which are intuitive, automated, and flexible; and

 

 

(vi)

Increased revenue streams with the enablement of easy expansion across new channels and, ultimately, new markets.

 

Content Services

 

We plan to facilitate content services with an integrated set of technologies to allow customers to manage information throughout the content services lifecycle and improve business productivity, all while mitigating the risk and controlling the costs of growing volumes of data. We intend to make our content services solutions available via on-premise, SaaS and increasingly cloud-based solutions, which will include next-generation SaaS platform for content services. The proposed SaaS platform will be comprised of a set of consumer-grade, end-user productivity applications that enable users to access, share, create and collaborate on content, across any device.

 

Business Process Management (BPM)

 

We believe our planned BPM solution will provide software capabilities for analyzing, automating, monitoring and optimizing structured business processes that typically fall outside the scope of existing enterprise systems. We believe our envisioned BPM solutions will help empower employees, customers and partners.

 

Our proposed BPM solutions will include 260 Process Suite and 260 Process Suite Solutions.

 

260 Process Suite will place businesses in direct control of its processes and fosters alignment between business and Information Technology (IT), resulting in tangible benefits for both. Our Process Suite will provide a single platform that can be accessed simply through a web browser and is built from the ground up to be truly multi-tenant and support all of the deployment models required for on-premise, private or public clouds.  

260 Process Suite Solutions will be packaged applications built on the Process Suite and address specific business problems. For some of these solutions, we plan to include several applications, including Contract Management, Cloud Brokerage Services, Digital Media Supply Chain, and the Enterprise App Store.

 

Customer Feedback Management (CFM)

 

We believe our planned CFM solutions will generate improved time-to-market by giving customers, employees, and channel partners personalized and engaging experiences.

 

We intend our proposed CFM solutions will include:

Table of Contents


 

Web Content Management, which we believe will provide software for authoring, maintaining, and administering websites designed to offer a “visitor experience” that integrates content from internal and external sources. 

Digital Asset Management, which we believe will provide a set of content management services for browsing, searching, viewing, assembling, and delivering rich media content such as images, audio and video.  

Customer Communications Management Software, which we believe will make it possible for organizations to process and deliver highly personalized documents in paper or electronic format rather than a “one message fits all” approach.  

Social Software, which we believe will help companies “socialize” their web presence by adding blogs, wikis, ratings and reviews, and build communities for public websites and employee intranets.  

Portal, which we believe will enable organizations to aggregate, integrate and personalize corporate information and applications and provide a central, contextualized, and personalized view of information for executives, departments, partners, and customers.  

Customer Experience (“CX”)

 

We believe our planned CX solutions will help customers organize and visualize all relevant content to enable business users to quickly locate information in order to make better-informed decisions based on timely, contextualized information.

 

Our proposed CX solutions shall include:

 

Search, which we plan to address information security and productivity requirements by securely indexing all information for fast retrieval and real-time monitoring.  

 

Smart Navigation, which we plan to help improve the end-user experience of websites by enabling intuitive visual exploration of site content through contextual navigation.  

 

Auto-Classification, which we plan to help improve the quality of information governance through intelligent metadata extraction and accurate classification of information.  

 

CX Silos, which we believe will make it possible for organizations to deal with the issue of so-called “information silos” resulting from, for instance, numerous disconnected information sources across the enterprise. Using a framework of adapters, an information access platform allows organizations to consolidate, decommission, archive and migrate content from virtually any system or information repository.  

 

Business Network (BN)

Our proposed BN solution will be a set of offerings that facilitate efficient, secure, and compliant exchange of information inside and outside the enterprise.

Our proposed BN solutions will include:

Business-to-Business (B2B) Integration services that help optimize the reliability, reach, and cost efficiency of an enterprise's electronic supply chain while reducing costs, infrastructure and overhead.  

 

Secure Messaging helps to share and synchronize files across an organization, across teams and with business partners, while leveraging the latest smartphones and tablets to provide information on the go without sacrificing information governance or security.  

BYOC Analytics

 


6


Table of Contents


We believe our proposed BYOC Analytics solutions in which we plan to develop will help organizations gain insight from their structured and unstructured data, make predictions, visualize and report on business processes, customer interactions and a myriad of other sources of information. This analytical data can then be used to refine business processes or content utilization, make predictions, identify trends, improve customer service or be applied in a multitude of different scenarios.

 

Our planned BYOC Analytics solutions include:

 

Embedded Reporting and Visualization which will be used to embed reports and visualizations of data in an array of applications, including the BYOC EIM Suites and many third-party data sources.  

Big Data Analysis is the analysis of large sets of information from databases, files, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems and a variety of other sources. Our planned modeling and predictive algorithms may be applied to this data using BYOC solutions to extract meaningful insight or predictive models to solve customer problems or help with operational insight.  

Our Business Strategy

 

Growth

 

We plan to grow our business and strengthen our future service offerings in the IMT&S market through product development strategic acquisitions and integration. We plan to be a value-oriented and disciplined acquirer. Currently we are in the process of identifying potential acquisitions of companies in the IMT&S markets.  In this regard, on December 14, 2017, we entered into an agreement with Service 800 and the sole shareholder of Service 800 (the “Shareholder”), and on March 4, 2019 we purchased all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of Service 800 from the Shareholder (the “Transaction”).  Service 800 operates as a premium provider of Customer Feedback Management Platforms to their Fortune 500 and 1000 clients on a global basis. Service 800 provides survey authoring, response rates, feedback types and data analysis on their proprietary, cloud based, automated and centralized platform. Service 800 has currently 40 full time employees that provide services to 130 companies and 300 service organizations. Service 800’s current operations and strategic business plan is to further develop its marketing and Customer Experience platform to use within the framework of its current Fortune 500 and 1000 clients. While acquiring companies that operate complementary businesses will be one of our leading growth drivers, our growth strategy also includes product and software innovation. We plan to create sustained value by expanding distribution and adding value through up-selling and cross-selling across our planned multiple proprietary marketing platforms to our future customers.

 

We plan on acquiring operating companies that will help us provide a well-rounded product line to our future customers.  We believe that such acquisitions will be our primary driver to growth, similar to high-performing conglomerates.  By focusing on these acquisitions and the integration of niche businesses, we believe this will be well-positioned to create a streamlined platform, which we believe will allow us to offer our future clients a full suite of software solutions and technology services.

 

We have developed a philosophy, which we refer to as “The Beyond Commerce Business System.” Our philosophy is designed to create value by leveraging a clear set of operational mandates for integrating newly acquired companies and assets. We believe we have the ability to successfully integrate acquired companies and assets into our business given the background and experience of our Chief Executive Officer and the members of our Board of Directors.  We believe pursuing strategic acquisitions is an important aspect to our planned strategy. However, no assurance can be given that we will be successful in consummating such acquisitions or that we will be successful in realizing anticipated strategic benefits of such acquisitions.

 

Funding Agreements

 

 

On March 28, 2018, we entered into a securities purchase agreement with Iliad Research and Trading, L.P. (“Iliad”) pursuant to which we secured a seventeen (17) month non-dilutive bridge loan in the principal amount of $1,000,000 (of which $100,000 would be retained by Iliad as an original issue discount), consisting of six tranches of funding, with the initial tranche consisting of a promissory note in the principal amount of $100,000 and each subsequent note equal to $150,000.  Upon execution of the agreement, we received from Iliad an initial payment of $50,000.  The notes each had a maturity of seventeen (17) months from the date of issuance, an interest rate of 10% per annum, and were convertible into shares of common stock at a price of $0.15 per share.  The agreement also provided that Iliad would be issued seven (7) warrants to purchase shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share.  In addition, if at the

Company’s option it decided to repay the loan with shares of its common stock, the conversion price adjusted to 65% of the lowest trading price on the primary trading market on which the Company’s common stock is then-listed for the twenty (20) trading days immediately prior to conversion.  The notes could be prepaid, but carry a penalty in association with the remittance amount, as there is an accretion component to satisfy the outstanding balance with cash.  On August 31, 2018, we paid $197,918 to Iliad to settle the outstanding balance, consisting of pre-payment penalty principal and interest.  The Company is currently negotiating a settlement with Iliad with respect to a warrant.  

 

On June 14, 2018, the Company issued a 15% senior convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $50,000.  This note has a maturity of eight (8) months and is convertible into shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company at a price of $0.10 per share.  As inducement for the note, the Company issued 825,000 shares of restricted common stock, par value $0.001 per share, to the noteholder. The Company is currently negotiating an extension with the note holder.

 

On August 7, 2018, we entered into a securities purchase agreement (“SPA”) with Discover Growth Fund, LLC (“Discover”), pursuant to which we issued a senior secured redeemable convertible debenture in the principal amount of $2,717,391 (of which $217,391 was retained by Discover as an original issue discount) (the “Debenture”), in exchange for $500,000 cash consideration and a promissory note issued by BYOC in the amount of $2,000,000 (the “Note”).  Pursuant to the terms of the SPA, we issued to Discover a warrant to purchase up to 16,666,667 shares of our common stock, exercisable beginning on the six (6) month anniversary from the date of issuance for a period of three (3) years at an exercise price of $0.15 per share (the “Warrant”).  The Debenture is subject to interest at a rate of 8.0% per annum and be converted into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price equal to the lower (i) $0.15 per share of common stock, and (ii) if there has never been a trigger event (as defined in the Debenture), (A) the average of the 5 lowest individual trades of the shares of common stock, less $0.01 per share, or following any such trigger event, (B) 60% of the foregoing.  Further, pursuant to the SPA we agreed to issue 2,500,000 shares of our common stock to Discover at close of the transaction, and that Discover would fund $2,000,000 in cash upon effectiveness of The Company’s registration statement, which occurred on February 8, 2019.  The Discover transaction closed on August 16, 2018. We issued 2,500,000 shares of common stock to Discover in 2019.

 

On February 12, 2019, after effectiveness of its registration statement the Company entered into the second tranche of funding from the Discover Growth Fund, LLC for $2,000,000 of which funds were utilized in the cash component of the Service 800, Inc transaction.

 

On December 31, 2019, Beyond Commerce, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with TCA Special Situations Credit Strategies ICAV, an Irish collective asset vehicle (the “Buyer” or “TCA ICAV”), and TCA Beyond Commerce, LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company (“TCA Beyond Commerce”), pursuant to which the Buyer purchased from the Company a senior secured redeemable debenture having an initial principal amount of $900,000 and an interest rate of 16% per annum (the “Initial Debenture”). Additional Debentures may be issued and funded, subject to and upon the approval of the Company and the Buyer, provided that the total value of the Initial Debenture and the Additional Debentures together shall not exceed $5,000,000.

 

 Potential Product Revenues

 

Our forecasted business will consist of four revenue streams: (1) software license; (2) cloud services and subscriptions; (3) customer support; and (4) professional services.

 

License

 

Our forecasted license revenues will consist of fees earned from the licensing of software products to our future customers. We believe that license revenues will be impacted by the strength of general economic and industry conditions, the competitive strength of our future software offerings, and our potential acquisitions. A potential customer’s decision to license our software products often involves a comprehensive implementation process across the customer’s network or networks and the licensing and implementation of our planned software products may entail a significant commitment of resources by prospective customers.

 

Cloud Services and Subscriptions

 

Our forecasted cloud-based services and subscription revenues will consist of (i) software as a service offerings, (ii) managed service arrangements and (iii) subscription revenues relating to on-premise offerings. We believe these


8


Table of Contents


offerings will allow our potential customers to transmit a variety of content between various mediums and to securely manage enterprise information without the commitment of investing in related hardware infrastructure.

 

In addition, we plan to offer B2B integration solutions, such as messaging services, and managed services. Messaging services will (i) allow for the automated and reliable exchange of electronic transaction information, such as purchase orders, invoices, shipment notices and other business documents, among businesses worldwide, and (ii) provide an end-to-end fully outsourced B2B integration solution to our customers, including program implementation, operational management, and customer support. We believe these planned services will enable customers to effectively manage the flow of electronic transaction information with their trading partners and reduce the complexity of disparate standards and communication protocols.

 

Customer Support

 

We plan on integrating our proposed customer support offering to customers together with the purchase of a license of our future enterprise information management software products. This customer support will typically renew on an annual basis; customer support revenues will be a sizeable portion of total revenue, as they are with our many of our competitors. Through our planned customer support programs, customers will receive access to software upgrades, a knowledge base, discussions, product information, and an online mechanism to post and review trouble issues. Additionally, our planned customer support teams will handle questions on the use, configuration, and functionality of our products and can help identify software issues, develop solutions, and document enhancement requests for consideration in future product releases.

 

Professional Service and Other

 

We plan to provide consulting and learning services to customers and generally these services will relate to the implementation, training and integration of our licensed product offerings into the customer's systems.

 

We believe our planned consulting services will help customers build solutions that will enable them to leverage their investments in our technology and in existing enterprise systems. Implementation of these services will range from simple modifications to meet specific departmental needs to enterprise applications that will integrate with multiple existing systems.

We plan to have our learning services advisors analyze our future customers' education and training needs, focusing on key learning outcomes and timelines, with a view to creating an appropriate education plan for the employees of our customers who work with our products. We plan to design flexible education plans that can be applied to any phase of implementation: pilot, roll-out, upgrade or refresher. Our learning services will employ a blended approach by combining mentoring, instructor-led courses, webinars, eLearning and potentially, focused workshops.

 

Potential Acquisitions

 

We believe our future competitive position in the marketplace will be dependent upon our ability to maintain a complex and evolving array of technologies, products, services and capabilities. Considering the continually evolving marketplace in which we intend to operate, we plan to regularly evaluate acquisition opportunities within the IMT&S market and at any time may be in various stages of discussions with respect to such opportunities.

 

Pursuing strategic acquisitions is an important aspect to our current and future growth strategy, which we expect to continue, in order to strengthen our service offerings in the IMT&S market. As discussed elsewhere in this filing, we completed the acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding shares of Service 800, Inc. on March 4, 2019.

We believe our planned acquisitions support our long-term strategy for growth. We believe such acquisitions will strengthen our competitive position, help us obtain a customer base and provide greater scale to accelerate innovation, and begin revenues. We plan to continue to identify strategic acquisitions of complementary companies, products, services and technologies which we believe will augment our existing business.

 

Research and Development

 

The industry in which we plan to operate and compete is subject to rapid technological developments, evolving industry standards, changes in customer requirements and competitive new products and features. As a result, we believe our success, in part, will depend on our ability to build and enhance our products in a timely and efficient manner and to develop and introduce new products that meet client needs while reducing total cost of ownership. To achieve these

objectives, we plan to make and expect to make research and development investments through internal and third-party development activities, third-party licensing agreements and potentially through technology acquisitions.

  

 

 

Marketing and Sales

 

Our sales and marketing plan is built around teams that collaborate to create market awareness and demand, to build a robust sales pipeline and to ensure customer success that drives revenue growth through market identification.

 

Sales

We plan to use a direct sales approach that includes inside sales teams and field sales teams. Our planned inside sales team, will be based in regional sales hubs when fully implemented, qualifies and manages accounts throughout the world in a manner in which we can seed new sales at a low cost and expand these accounts over time. The second phase of our planned sales initiative is the development and use of a direct field sales team that will cover North America; Europe, Middle East and Africa; the Asia Pacific region; and Latin America, and is mainly responsible for lead qualification and account management for large enterprises. Our planned direct sales teams will partner with technical sales representatives who will provide pre-sales technical support. We will also have a dedicated customer success team to drive renewals of existing contracts.

 

We also plan to sell our products through indirect sales channels including technology vendors, resellers and OEM and independent software vendor (ISV) partners. These channels will provide additional sales coverage, solution-based selling, services and training throughout the world. Our channel program will be led by a dedicated sales team.

 

Marketing

 

Our planned marketing efforts will focus on establishing our brand, generating awareness, creating leads and cultivating the BYOC user community. The marketing team will be dedicated to product marketing, program marketing, field events, channel marketing, corporate communications and website development. We plan to leverage both online and offline marketing channels such as events and trade shows, seminars and webinars, third-party analyst reports, whitepapers, case studies, blogs, search engines and email marketing. A central focus for the marketing team will be to drive free product trials and encourage use of our free online training and certification, an integral part of our planned customer acquisition process. Our marketing team will be responsible for the logistics of hosting various planned events, including an annual customer conferences and regional events, as well as providing Web-based community tools and supporting customer-driven user groups.

 

Seasonality

In the past, our operating results and operating cash flows historically have not been subject to seasonal variations. This pattern may change, however, in the event that we succeed in bringing our planned products to market.

 

Market and Competition

 

The IMT&S industry is highly fragmented and competitive. Key competitive factors include contractual terms and competitive pricing, quality of service, reputation, technical and industry expertise, scope of services, innovative service and product offerings. Key success factors include the ability to access the latest available and most efficient technology and techniques; maintain a highly skilled workforce; maintain effective cost controls, and good project management skills.

 

The market for our proposed products and related services is highly competitive, subject to rapid technological change and shifting customer needs and economic pressures. In the Customer Feedback Management Platform (CX) market, our competitors may have single (or narrowly-tailored) solutions or they may have a range of information management solutions. Given the markets in which we plan to operate and the products and services we plan to offer, we believe our top competitors to be Clarabridge, Confirmit, InMoment, MartizCX, Medallia, NICE, Qualtrics, Satmetrix Systems, SMG and Verint Systems.

 

We believe that many of our competitors in the IMT&S industry would be small, and of those, many are non-employing firms. Companies in the industry in which we intend to operate offer a broad range of product and services tailored to different markets. This mobility has allowed smaller firms to dominate the industry composition, as they tend to provide services to a specific niche market and/or within a specific geographic region. Despite their prevalence, smaller firms contribute only a small percentage of industry revenue. The bulk of revenue is generated by several high-profile global corporations, such as IBM, Hewlett-Packard, EMC Corporation, SAS, and Accenture. Larger companies maintain


10


Table of Contents


an advantage over smaller firms in that they can service national and international clients, with more resources and capabilities, and as such are able to command a higher premium.

 

We believe that certain competitive factors will affect the market for our future software products and related services, which may include: (i) vendor and product reputation; (ii) product quality, performance and price; (iii) the availability of software products on multiple platforms; (iv) product scalability; (v) product integration with other enterprise applications; (vi) software functionality and features; (vii) software ease of use; (viii) the quality of professional services, customer support services and training; and (ix) the ability to address specific customer business problems. We believe the relative importance of each of these factors depends upon the concerns and needs of each specific customer.

 

Intellectual Property Rights

 

Our future success and ability to compete will depend on our ability to develop and maintain our intellectual property and proprietary technology and to operate without infringing on the proprietary rights of others. Software products are generally licensed to customers on a non-exclusive basis for internal use in a customer's organization. We plan to also grant rights in intellectual property that we plan on developing or acquiring to third-parties to allow them to market certain of our future products on a non-exclusive or limited-scope exclusive basis for an application of such product or to a specific geographic region.

 

We plan to rely on a combination of copyright, patent, trademark and trade secret laws, non-disclosure agreements and other contractual provisions to establish and maintain our proprietary rights. The duration of patents is determined by the laws of the country of issuance and for the U.S. is typically 17 years from the date of issuance of the patent or 20 years from the date of filing of the patent application resulting in the patent. While we believe our intellectual property will be an asset, and our ability to maintain and protect our intellectual property rights is important to our success, we do not anticipate that our business will not be materially dependent on any patent, trademark, license, or other intellectual property right.

 

Employees

 

As of December 31, 2019, the Company currently has two full-time employees, of which Mr. Geordan Pursglove is one of them.  Mr. Pursglove is our President, CEO and Director. Through the acquisition of Service 800, Inc., we added forty (40) full time employees and approximately 320 independent service providers that assist in providing services to the Company’s current roster of approximately 130 companies and 300 service organizations. Additionally, through the acquisition of PathUX the Company added an additional five employees along with approximately 100 independent service providers that assist in providing services for IDriveYourCar.

 

 

Properties

 

We currently lease virtual office space at 3773 Howard Hughes Parkway, Suite: 500 Las Vegas, NV 89169.  We pay an annual fee of $120 for this lease. In February of 2020 the Company moved Service 800, Inc. to 110 Cheshire Lane, Minnetonka Minnesota 55305. Service 800 leases 3,210 square feet of office space under an operating lease agreement with Carlson Center East LLC. The lease, which expires June 30, 2023, requires base monthly rents of $4,160, plus operating expenses.

 

Legal Proceedings

 

A complaint against us, dated February 5, 2020, has been filed in Hennepin County, Minnesota, by Jean Mork Bredeson, the former President and former owner of Service 800, making certain claims related to the Company’s acquisition of Service 800, seeking in excess of $1.6 million in damages. The Company believes these claims to be unfounded and the Company is continuing to vigorously defend itself against this lawsuit. On March 16, 2020, the Company and Service 800 filed an answer, counterclaim and third-party claim against Ms. Bredeson and defendants Allen Bredeson and Jeff Schwedinger, former employees of Service 800.

  

In addition to the above, from time to time, we may be involved in litigation in the ordinary course of business. Other than as set forth above, we are not currently involved in any litigation that we believe could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations. Other than as set forth above, to our knowledge, 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 our executive officers or any of our subsidiaries, threatened against


11

or affecting our Company, our common stock, any of our subsidiaries or any of our subsidiaries’ officers or directors in their capacities as such, in which an adverse decision could have a material adverse effect.

 

 ITEM 1A.   RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in our securities involves a high degree of risk.  You should carefully consider the risks described below before deciding to invest in or maintain your investment in our Company.  The risks described below are not intended to be an all-inclusive list of all of the potential risks relating to an investment in our securities.  If any of the following or other risks actually occur, our business, financial condition or operating results and the trading price or value of our securities could be materially and adversely affected.

 

General Business and Industry Risks

 

 

We have no proven ability to generate revenues, and any investment in our company is risky.

 

We do not have a meaningful operating history, so it will be difficult for you to evaluate an investment in our stock. We cannot assure that we will generate revenues or be profitable. As a result, investors will bear the risk of complete loss of their investment in the event we are not successful. 

  

Rule 144 is not generally available to holders of our Common Stock which makes it difficult to resell shares in the future.

 

With limited exceptions related to restrictive securities acquired before we became a “non-shell company”, holders of our restricted securities continued to be limited in their ability to resell their securities pursuant to Rule 144. Preclusion from the use of the resale exemption from registration afforded by Rule 144 may make it more difficult for us to sell equity securities in the future, and for stockholders to resell their restricted securities.  

 

Furthermore, in general, under Rule 144, a person who is not one of our affiliates and who is not deemed to have been one of our affiliates at any time during the three months preceding a sale and who has beneficially owned shares of our common stock for at least six months would be entitled to sell them without restriction, subject to the continued availability of current public information about us (which current public information requirement is eliminated after a one-year holding period).

 

A person who is an affiliate and who has beneficially owned shares of a company’s common stock for at least six months, subject to the continued availability of current public information about us, is entitled to sell within any three-month period a number of shares that does not exceed the greater of:

 

 

one percent of the number of shares of our company’s common stock then outstanding, which, in our case, will equal approximately 10,000,000 shares as of the date of this Annual Report on Form10-K; or

 

 

 

 

the average weekly trading volume of our company’s common stock during the four calendar weeks preceding the filing of a notice on form 144 with respect to the sale.

 

Rule 144 is not available for either a reporting or non-reporting shell company, as defined under Rule 405 of the Securities Act, unless our company: has ceased to be a shell company; is subject to the Exchange Act reporting obligations; has filed all required Exchange Act reports during the preceding twelve months; and at least one year has elapsed from the time the company filed with the SEC, current Form 10 type information reflecting its status as an entity that is not a shell company.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that we will continue as a going concern.

  

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. For the year ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, we had an accumulated deficit of $48,227,200 and $42,762,681, respectively. These matters raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset amounts or the classification of liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern. As a result, our independent registered public


12


Table of Contents


accounting firm included an explanatory paragraph in its report on our financial statements as of December 31, 2019 and 2018 with respect to this uncertainty.  

 

Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate profitable business operations in the future and/or obtaining the necessary financing to meet our obligations and repay our liabilities. Management’s plan to continue as a going concern is based on us obtaining additional capital resources through the sale of our securities and/or loans on an as needed basis. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to successfully accomplish the plans described above and eventually attaining profitable operations.

 

In addition to the normal risks associated with a new business venture, there can be no assurance that our business plan will be successfully executed. Our ability to execute our business plan will depend on our ability to obtain additional financing and achieve a profitable level of operations. There can be no assurance that sufficient financing will be available, or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to us. Even if we are able to obtain additional financing, it may contain undue restrictions on our operations, in the case of debt financing, or cause substantial dilution for our stockholders, in the case of equity financing.  In this regard, we are restricted by the number of shares available for issuance in an equity financing, and we will likely need to increase out authorized capital in order to take advantage of such financing.  However, there can be no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining shareholder approval to increase our authorized capital. Further, we cannot give any assurance that we will generate substantial revenues or that our business operations will prove to be profitable. To the extent that we are unsuccessful, we may need to curtail or cease our operations and implement a plan to extend payables or reduce overhead until sufficient additional capital is raised to support further operations. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on management’s plans, which include further implementation of its business plan and continuing to raise funds through debt and/or equity raises.

 

We must raise additional capital to fund our operations.

 

We do not currently have sufficient capital to fund our current or anticipated operations. We may be unable to obtain additional capital when required. Future business development activities, as well as our administrative requirements (such as salaries, insurance expenses and general overhead expenses, as well as legal compliance costs and accounting expenses) will require a substantial amount of additional capital and cash flow.

 

We may need to acquire additional funds in order to develop our business. We may seek to raise such capital through public or private equity financings, partnerships, collaborations, joint ventures, disposition of assets, debt financings or restructurings, bank borrowings or other sources of financing. However, our ability to do so is subject to a number of risks, uncertainties, constraints and consequences, including, but not limited to, the following:

 

 

our ability to raise capital through the issuance of additional shares of our common stock or convertible securities is restricted by the limited number of our residual authorized shares, the potential difficulty of obtaining stockholder approval to increase authorized shares and the restrictive covenants under our secured term loan agreement;

 

 

 

 

issuance of equity-based securities will dilute the proportionate ownership of existing stockholders;

 

 

 

 

our ability to obtain further funds from any potential loan arrangements is limited by our existing loan and security agreement;

 

 

 

 

certain financing arrangements may require us to relinquish rights to various assets and/or impose more restrictive terms than any of our existing or past arrangements; and

 

 

 

 

we may be required to meet additional regulatory requirements, and we may be subject to certain contractual limitations, which may increase our costs and harm our ability to obtain funding.

 

For these and other reasons, additional funding may not be available on favorable terms or at all. If we fail to obtain additional capital when needed, we may be required to delay, scale back or eliminate some or all of our planned research and development programs, reduce our selling, general and administrative expenses, be unable to attract and retain highly qualified personnel, refrain from making our contractually required payments when due (including debt payments) and/or be forced to cease operations, liquidate our assets and possibly seek bankruptcy protection. Any of these consequences could harm our business, financial condition, operating results and prospects.

 


13


Table of Contents


Any additional capital raised through the sale of equity may dilute the ownership percentage of our stockholders. Raising any such capital could also result in a decrease in the fair market value of our equity securities because our assets would be owned by a larger pool of outstanding equity. The terms of securities we issue in future capital transactions may be more favorable to our new investors, and may include preferences, superior voting rights and the issuance of other derivative securities, and issuances of incentive awards under equity employee incentive plans, which may have a further dilutive effect.

 

Our ability to obtain financing may be impaired by factors such as the capital markets (both generally and in our industry in particular), our limited operating history, national unemployment rates and the departure of key employees. Further, economic downturns will likely decrease our revenues and may increase our requirements for capital. If the amount of capital we are able to raise from financing activities, together with our revenues from operations, if any, is not sufficient to satisfy our capital needs (even to the extent that we reduce our operations), we may be required to cease our operations, divest our assets at unattractive prices or obtain financing on unattractive terms.

 

We have a limited operating history, have generated losses since inception, have not generated any revenues from planned operations and may never achieve profitability.

 

Prior to our recent acquisition of Service 800, Inc., we were an early pre-revenue stage company and have a limited history of operations. We are faced with all of the risks associated with a company in the early stages of development. Our business is subject to numerous risks associated with a new company engaged in the "big data" arena for the B2B IMT&S space. Such risks include, among other things, potential competition from well-established and well-capitalized companies, unanticipated development, and changes in trends, marketing difficulties and risks associated with intellectual property creation, protection and exploitation. There can be no assurance that we will ever achieve profitability.

 

We may encounter delays, uncertainties, and complications typically encountered by early stage businesses, many of which will be beyond our control. These risks include the following: lack of sufficient capital, unanticipated

problems, delays, and expenses relating to product development and implementation, lack of intellectual property protection, licensing and marketing difficulties, competition, technological changes, and uncertain market acceptance of our future products and services.

 

Our planned expense levels will be based in part on our expectations concerning future revenue, which is difficult to forecast accurately based on our stage of development. We may be unable to adjust spending in a timely manner to compensate for any unexpected shortfall in revenue. Further, business development and marketing expenses may increase significantly as we expand operations. To the extent that these expenses precede or are not rapidly followed by a corresponding increase in revenue, our business, operating results, and financial condition may be materially and adversely affected.

 

Our acquisitions are an important aspect of our growth strategy, but they may not achieve expectations, which could affect our cash flow and profitability.

 

We plan to acquire companies and operations that complement our planned business operations. These transactions involve numerous business risks, including finding suitable transaction partners, the diversion of management’s attention from other business concerns, extending our product or service offerings into areas in which we have limited experience, entering into new geographic markets, the potential loss of key employees or business relationships and the integration of acquired businesses, any of which could adversely impact our business, financial condition or results of operations.  We may face a number of risks with respect to potential acquisitions, including but not limited to:

 

 

an acquisition may negatively affect our business, financial condition, operating results or cash flows because it may require us to incur charges or assume substantial debt or other liabilities, may cause adverse tax consequences or unfavorable accounting treatment, may expose us to claims and disputes by third parties, including intellectual property claims and disputes, or may not generate sufficient financial return to offset additional costs and expenses related to the acquisition;

 

 

 

 

we may encounter difficulties or unforeseen expenditures in integrating the business, technologies, products, personnel or operations of any company that we acquire, particularly if key personnel of the acquired company decide not to work for us;

Table of Contents


 

 

 

 

an acquisition, whether or not consummated, may disrupt our ongoing business, divert resources, increase our expenses and distract our management

 

 

 

 

an acquisition may result in a delay or reduction of purchases for both us and the company that we acquired due to uncertainty about continuity and effectiveness of solution from either company;

 

 

 

 

we may not be able to successfully integrate our business through the acquisition of Service 800, Inc. and we may not be able to fully realize the anticipated strategic benefits of the acquisition, which includes a complementary business;

 

 

 

 

an acquisition may involve the entry into geographic or business markets in which we have little or no prior experience or where competitors have stronger market positions;

 

 

 

 

challenges inherent in effectively managing an increased number of employees in diverse locations;

 

 

 

 

the potential strain on our financial and managerial controls and reporting systems and procedures;

 

 

 

 

potential known and unknown liabilities associated with an acquired company;

 

 

 

 

our use of cash to pay for acquisitions could limit other potential uses for our cash;

 

 

 

 

the risk of impairment charges related to potential write-downs of acquired assets or goodwill in future acquisitions; and

 

 

 

 

to the extent that we issue a significant amount of equity or convertible debt securities relating to future acquisitions, existing stockholders may be diluted and earnings per share may decrease.

 

We may not succeed in addressing these or other risks or any other problems encountered relating to the integration of any acquired business, the inability to integrate successfully the business, technologies, products, personnel or operations of any acquired business, or any significant delay in achieving integration, could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and operating results.

 

We may be adversely affected by risks associated with acquisitions, such as Service 800, including execution risks, failure to realize anticipated strategic benefits, and failure to overcome integration risks, which could adversely affect our growth and profitability.

 

We plan to grow our business both organically and inorganically, including through the acquisitions of Service 800, PathUX, and IdriveYourCar, and development of software and solutions. While we plan to complete other acquisitions, there can be no assurance that we will be successful in closing on other acquisitions. In the event that we do pursue further acquisitions, we may have difficulty executing on such acquisitions and may not realize the anticipated benefits of any transaction we complete. Any of the foregoing matters could materially and adversely affect us.

 

The integration of Service 800, PathUX and IDriveYourCar will likely be a time-consuming process. The integration process will likely require substantial management time and attention, which may divert attention and resources from other important areas, including developing our planned services and products existing business. In addition, we may not be able to fully realize the anticipated strategic benefits of the acquisition, which includes a complementary business. The failure to successfully integrate the combined operations, including retention of key employees, could impact our ability to realize the full benefits of our acquisitions of Service 800, PathUX and IDriveYourCar. If we are not able to achieve the anticipated strategic benefits of the acquisition, it could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations, and could adversely affect the market price of our common stock if the integration or the anticipated financial and strategic benefits of the acquisition are not realized as rapidly as, or to the extent anticipated by us. Failure to achieve the anticipated benefits could result in increased costs and decreases in future revenue and/or net income following the acquisition.

 

Inadequate protection of our intellectual property could impair our competitive advantage.

 


15


Table of Contents


Our success and ability to compete depend in part upon our development of proprietary technology and intellectual properties. We will eventually rely primarily on a combination of copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret laws, nondisclosure agreements, and technical measures to protect our future proprietary technology and intellectual properties. We will also limit access to, and distribution of, our proprietary technology and trade secrets through security technologies.

 

There can be no assurance that our efforts to protect our intellectual property rights will adequately deter misappropriation or independent third-party development of our intellectual property or prevent an unauthorized third party from obtaining or using information that we regard as proprietary.

 

There can be no assurance that our competitors will not independently develop proprietary technologies similar to ours. Litigation may be necessary in the future to protect our trade secrets or other intellectual property rights or to determine the validity and scope of the proprietary rights of others. Such litigation could result in substantial costs and diversion of resources and could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, and results of operations.

 

Third parties could claim that we are infringing their patents or other intellectual property rights; we must protect our intellectual property; and others could infringe on or misappropriate our rights.

 

Open source software includes a broad range of software applications and operating environments produced by companies, development organizations and individual software developers and is typically licensed for use, distribution and modification at a nominal cost or often, free of charge. To the extent that the open source software models expand, and non-commercial companies and software developers create and contribute competitive analytical software to the open source community, we may be forced to adjust our pricing, maintenance and distribution strategies and models, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial position and results of operation. In addition, if one of our developers embedded open source software into one or more of our products without our knowledge or authorization or a third party has incorporated open source software into such third-party’s software without disclosing the presence of such open source software and we embedded such third-party software into one or more of our products, we could, under certain circumstances, be required to disclose the source code to such products. Third-parties could claim that we are infringing on their patents or other intellectual property rights.

 

Our planned technology and products may not achieve commercial success or widespread market acceptance.

 

The technology and products that we plan to develop, may not achieve customer or widespread market acceptance. Some or all of our planned technology and products may not achieve commercial success as a result of technology problems, competitive cost issues, yield problems, and other factors. Even if we successfully introduce a new product, customers may determine not to adopt or may terminate use of our products for a variety of reasons, including the following:

 

 

superior technologies developed by competitors; 

 

 

 

 

price considerations; 

 

 

 

 

lack of anticipated or actual market demand for the products; or 

 

 

 

 

unfavorable comparisons with products introduced by others. 

 

We may be unable to recover any expenditure we make relating to one or more modern technologies that ultimately prove to be unsuccessful for any reason. In addition, any investments or acquisitions made to enhance technologies may also prove to be unsuccessful.

 

We may not be able to commercialize our planned technology products or services.

 

A key element of our business strategy involves the development and commercialization of new software technologies and products. The success of this effort depends on numerous factors. We may not be able to expand our business as anticipated and may make substantial investments in product development, and marketing efforts that may not result in any sales. The design and manufacture of products utilizing innovative technology involves a highly complex process that is sensitive to a wide variety of factors. As a result of these factors, we may experience no revenues and no adoption of our planned products or services.

We might not be able to implement our business strategy.

 

To some extent, our ability to generate cash flow in the future is subject to general economic, financial, competitive, and other factors that are beyond our control. In the event our management has misjudged the market demand, market acceptance of our services, or financial projections and assumptions, results of operations could be adversely affected, and we might not be able to fund our development as planned. If we are unable to finance existing or future projects with cash flow from operations, we will have to adopt one or more alternatives, such as delaying launch, postponing advertising and marketing, canceling development projects and other capital expenditures, or obtaining additional equity/debt financing, or joint venture partners. These sources of additional funds might not be sufficient to finance future projects, and other financing may not be available on acceptable terms, in a timely manner or at all. If we are unable to secure additional financing, we could be forced to limit our business plan, or we may not be able to take advantage of unanticipated opportunities or otherwise respond to unanticipated competitive pressures, which might adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

We may experience delays in introducing our planned products or services which may adversely affect our revenue.

 

The timing of a creative process is difficult to predict. In developing our products, we anticipate dates for the launch of the products and associated product introductions. When we state that we will introduce or anticipate introducing a product at a certain time in the future, those expectations are based on completing the associated development or acquisition and implementation work in accordance with our currently anticipated schedules. Unforeseen delays and difficulties in the development process or significant increases in the planned costs of development, or factors outside our control may cause the introduction date for the product to be later than anticipated or, in some situations, may cause a product introduction to be discontinued. Any delay or cancellation of planned product development and introduction may decrease the number of products and features we sell and harm our business.

 

We may become dependent upon third-parties for certain future software and marketing applications development.

 

We may license certain software upgrades from third-party software developers. Licensed software could be embedded in our future product offerings, and some could be offered as add-on products. If these licenses are discontinued, or become invalid or unenforceable, there can be no assurance that we will be able to develop substitutes for the licensed software independently or that we will be able to obtain alternatives in a timely manner. Any delays in obtaining or developing substitutes for future licensed software applications could result in material adverse impacts to our financial condition and plan of operations.

 

Software piracy is a persistent problem in the IMT&S industry.

 

Preventing unauthorized use of computer software is difficult, and software piracy is a persistent problem for the software industry. In addition, the laws of various countries in which we may plan to market and sell our software and marketing applications do not protect our software and intellectual property rights to the same extent as the laws of the US. Despite the precautions that we are planning to take to safeguard our software and marketing application, it may be possible for unauthorized third-parties to reverse engineer or copy our planned products or obtain and use information that we regard as proprietary. There can be no assurance that the steps that we plan to take to protect our proprietary rights will be adequate to prevent misappropriation of our technology. If we fail to protect our Company from misappropriation of our technology, our operations could be materially affected.

Our operating results, once established, may have significant periodic and seasonal fluctuations.

 

Customer commitments in the IMT&S industry are frequently short-term. In addition to the variable nature of these commitments, other factors may contribute to significant periodic and seasonal fluctuations in results of operations. These factors may include the following:

 

 

the timing of orders; 

 

 

 

 

the volume of orders relative to capacity to provide technical support or customer service;

 

 

 

 

product introductions and market acceptance of new products or new generations of products;

 

 

 

 

evolution in the life cycles of customers’ products;

 

 

 

 

timing of expenditures in anticipation of future orders;

 

 

 

 

effectiveness in managing software development processes;

 

 

 

 

changes in cost and availability of labor and components;

 

 

 

 

introduction and market acceptance of customers’ products;  

 

 

 

 

product mix;

 

 

 

 

pricing and availability of competitive products; or  

 

 

 

 

anticipated or unanticipated changes in economic conditions.

 

Volatility of consumer preferences makes introducing successful products and services difficult and unpredictable.

 

Our success will depend on generating revenue from market acceptance of the products we release, but market acceptance cannot be predicted or relied upon. Our business plan involves the development of IMT&S products and the future enhancement of those products. The success of future enhancements cannot be assured regardless of the success of any initial products. If our products fail to gain market acceptance, we may not have sufficient revenues to pay our expenses and continue the ongoing development and acquisition of new products. The failure to successfully anticipate, identify and react to consumer preferences would have an adverse effect on revenues, profitability and the results of operations.

 

Potential profit margins may decline as a result of increasing pressure on margins.

 

The industry in which we plan to operate is subject to potentially significant pricing pressure caused by many factors. If our estimated gross margin declines and we fail to sufficiently reduce our operating cost or grow our future net revenues, we could incur significant operating losses that we may be unable to fund or sustain for extended periods of time, if at all. This could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, liquidity and financial condition.

 

We anticipate we will be dependent on the timely receipt of payment from our clients.

 

We plan to extend payment terms to our future clients. The extension of payment terms and the collection of potential receivables could extend well beyond normal terms outside of our control. Our ability to collect on outstanding receivables, our ability to borrow if needed under any credit facility and our overall financial condition could be negatively affected. Our financial condition and results of operations would be adversely impacted.

 

Our industry is highly competitive.

 

The market for marketing statistical software, data mining tools, predictive analytic solutions, both in the US and internationally, is highly fragmented and competitive. However, as our sales channel becomes more visible to potential


18


Table of Contents


competitors, some of which have well-recognized brand names and substantial financial, technological, distribution, marketing experience and research and development capabilities, the potential competitors may develop products that compete directly with our products. Competitive pressures from the introduction of novel solutions and products by these companies or other companies could have a material adverse effect on our future business results. There can be no assurance that we will be able to compete successfully or that the competition will not have a material adverse effect on our future business results.

 

We may experience sporadic sales cycles.

 

Our sales strategy is focused on our targeted market of Fortune 500 and 1000 businesses with a need for our software, marketing and related services. These “strategic accounts” could produce sales cycles of nine months or more in duration before any revenues are generated by us. These long sales cycles could have an adverse effect on our cash flow and in turn would have a materially adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.

 

We may be subject to risks associated with information disseminated through the Internet.

 

The safe and secure transmission of confidential information over the Internet has been a significant hurdle to electronic file transfer and communications over the Internet. Any compromise or actual breach of our planned internal security processes, databases and or hardware could deter our targeted clients from using our software and marketing applications and in turn create a materially adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.

 

Possible future transactions with our executive management or their affiliates may create conflicts.

 

Under prescribed circumstances, our bylaws permit us, under restricted circumstances, to enter into transactions with our affiliates, including the borrowing and lending of funds and joint investments. Currently, our policy is not to enter into any transaction involving joint investments with our Management or their affiliates, or to borrow from with the exclusion of past loans from The 2GP Group, or lend money to such persons. However, our policies in each of these regards may change in the future.

 

Our rights and the rights of our shareholders to recover claims against our officers and directors are limited.

 

Nevada law provides that a director has no liability in that capacity if he performs his duties in good faith in a manner he reasonably believes to be in our best interests and with the care that an ordinarily prudent person in a like position would use under similar circumstances. Our articles of incorporation, as amended (the “Articles of Incorporation”) authorize us, and our bylaws require us, to indemnify our directors, officers, employees and agents to the maximum extent permitted under Nevada law.

 

Additionally, our Articles of Incorporation limit the liability of our directors and officers to us and our shareholders for monetary damages to the maximum extent permitted under Nevada law. As a result, our shareholders and we may have more limited rights against our directors, officers, employees and agents, than might otherwise exist under common law. In addition, we may be obligated to fund the defense costs incurred by our directors, officers, employees and our agents in some cases.

 

The outbreak, and threat or perceived threat of outbreak, of the coronavirus may negatively impact our sourcing and manufacturing operations and consumer spending, which could adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

The outbreak of the COVID-19 (commonly referred to as the coronavirus) could adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.. At this point, the extent of the impact on our results as a result of the coronavirus outbreak is uncertain.

 

Our business, results of operations and financial condition could be adversely affected if the coronavirus outbreak expands to other countries where we have a significant number of stores, partnerships with regional distributors and wholesalers and/or sourcing and manufacturing operations. If the retail economy weakens and/or consumer behavior shifts due to the coronavirus outbreak or threat or perceived threat of such outbreak, we or our distributors may need to significantly reduce or limit store operations and/or close additional stores and retailers may be more cautious with orders. A slowing or changing economy in the regions adversely affected by the coronavirus outbreak could adversely affect the financial health of our distributors and wholesale partners, which in turn could have an adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

Risks Related to Our Common Stock

 

Our stock is considered a “penny stock,” and is therefore considered risky.

 

The SEC has adopted Rule 15g-9 which establishes the definition of a “penny stock,” for the purposes relevant to us, as any equity securities that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share or with an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions.  Such “penny stocks” and are subject to regulations which mandate the dispersion of certain disclosures to potential investors prior to any investors’ purchase of any penny stocks. Penny stocks are low-priced securities with low trading volume. Consequently, the price of the stock is often volatile and investors may be unable to buy or sell the stock when you desire. The SEC extensively monitors “penny stocks,” and such regulations are enumerated in Exchange Act Section 15(h) and Exchange Act Rules 3a51-1 and 15g-1 through 15g-100. With certain exceptions, brokers selling our stock must adhere to the SEC’s “penny stock” regulations, which requirements include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

 

brokers must provide you with a risk disclosure document relating to the penny stock market; 

 

 

 

 

brokers must disclose price quotations and other information relating to the penny stock market;

 

 

 

 

brokers must disclose any compensation they receive from the sale of our stock;

 

 

 

 

brokers must provide a disclosure of any compensation paid to any associated persons in connection with transactions relating to our stock;

 

 

 

 

brokers must provide you with quarterly account statements;

 

 

 

 

brokers may not sell any of our stock that is held in escrow or trust accounts;

 

 

 

 

prior to selling our stock, brokers must approve your account for buying and selling penny stocks; and

 

 

 

 

brokers must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction.

 

These additional sales practices and the disclosure requirements could impede the sale of our securities. In addition, the liquidity for our securities may be adversely affected, with related adverse effects on the price of our securities.

 

Unfavorable outcomes in legal proceedings may adversely affect our business, financial conditions and results of operations.

 

Our results may be affected by the outcome of future litigation. Unfavorable rulings in our legal proceedings may have a negative impact on us that may be greater or smaller depending on the nature of the rulings. In addition, from time to time in the future we may be subject to various claims, investigations, legal and administrative cases and proceedings (whether civil or criminal) or lawsuits by governmental agencies or private parties, including as described in the immediately preceding risk factor. For example, see “Item 3. Legal Proceedings” regarding current litigation matters. If the results of these investigations, proceedings or suits are unfavorable to us or if we are unable to successfully defend against third party lawsuits, we may be required to pay monetary damages or may be subject to fines, penalties, injunctions or other censure that could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations. Even if we adequately address the issues raised by an investigation or proceeding or successfully defend a third-party lawsuit or counterclaim, we may have to devote significant financial and management resources to address these issues, which could harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

On July 28, 2011, a judgment was entered into in favor of Mr. George Pursglove, our former Chief Executive Officer, in connection with his countersuit against BOOMj.com, a former wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.  The judgment was in the total amount of $6,020,775, consisting of: (i) $20,775 for damages as to the claim for failure to pay wages; (ii) $3,000,000 for damages as to the conversion claim; and (iii) $3,000,000 for punitive damages (the “July Judgment”).  The July Judgment accrues interest at a rate of 5.29% per annum.  As of September 30, 2019, the total amount forgiven of principal and interest was $8,360,224.

FINRA sales practice requirements may limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our stock.

 

In addition to the “penny stock” rules described above, FINRA has adopted rules that require that in recommending an investment to a customer, a broker-dealer must have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer. Prior to recommending speculative low-priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer’s financial status, tax status, investment objectives and other information. Under interpretations of these rules, FINRA believes that there is a high probability that speculative low-priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. The FINRA requirements make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend their customers buy our common stock, which may have the effect of reducing the trading activity in our common stock. As a result, fewer broker-dealers may be willing to make a market in our common stock, reducing a stockholder’s ability to resell shares of our common stock, thereby potentially reducing the liquidity of our common stock.

 

Certain stockholders possess a majority of our voting power, and through this ownership, may control our Company and our corporate actions.

 

Our controlling stockholder, The 2GP Group, Geordan Pursglove, our President, CEO and Director LLC and Fiona Oakley, together hold a majority of the total voting power of our outstanding capital stock as of March 31, 2020.  The 2GP Group, LLC is an entity controlled by Mr. Pursglove, who holds sole voting and dispositive power over these shares. Each share of Series A Preferred Stock is convertible into one share of common stock.  In addition, each share of Series A Preferred Stock entitles its holder to (i) cumulative, non-participating dividends in preference and priority to any declaration or payment of a dividend on any of the Company’s common stock, at a rate of 12% per annum, and (ii) three times (3x) voting preference over common stock.  Each one (1) share of the Series B Preferred Stock shall have voting rights equal to (x) 0.019607 multiplied by the total number of votes of issued and outstanding shares of stock of the Company eligible to vote at the time of the respective vote (the “Numerator”), divided by (y) 0.49, minus (z) the Numerator.These shareholders have the ability to control our management and affairs through the election and removal of our entire Board of Directors, the amendment of our articles of incorporation or bylaws, and the adoption of measures that could delay or prevent a change in control or impede a merger, takeover or other business combination involving us.  Such concentrated control of the Company may adversely affect the price of our common stock. A stockholder that acquires common stock will not have an effective voice in the management of the Company. 

 

We have no plans to pay dividends on our Common Stock or our Series A Preferred Stock.

 

We have not previously paid any cash dividends, nor have we determined to pay dividends on any share of Series A Preferred Stock or shares of Common Stock, except as described in the rights and preferences detailed in the “Certificate of Designation of Preferences” for the Series A Preferred Stock filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada. The permissibility to pay dividends on our shares is restricted by Section 78.288 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, which provides that a company may not issue a dividend if the result of such dividend would be to make the company have negative retained earnings.  There can be no assurance that our operations will result in sufficient revenues to enable us to operate at profitable levels or to generate positive cash flows. Furthermore, there is no assurance that the Board of Directors will declare dividends even if profitable. Dividend policy is subject to the Nevada Revised Statutes and the discretion of our Board of Directors and will depend on, among other things, our earnings, financial condition, capital requirements and other factors.

 

If we issue additional shares in the future, it will result in the dilution of our existing stockholders.

 

Subject to acceptance by the State of Nevada of the certificate of amendment to our articles of incorporation, we will be   authorized to issue up to 3,000,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.001, of which 1,627,914,678 are issued and outstanding as of March 31, 2020. Our board of directors, upon the approval of the stockholders, may seek to increase the number of authorized shares in the future and may choose to issue some or all of such shares to acquire one or more businesses or to provide additional financing in the future. The issuance of any such shares will result in a reduction of the book value and market price of the outstanding shares of our common stock. If we issue any such additional shares, such issuance will cause a reduction in the proportionate ownership and voting power of all current shareholders. Further, such issuance may result in a change of control of our company.

 

Voting power is highly concentrated in holders of our Series A Preferred Stock and Series B Preferred Stock.

Table of Contents


We are authorized to issue up to 250,000,000 shares of preferred stock, all of which(i) 249,999,990 are designated Series A Preferred Stock and all of which are currently issued and outstanding, (ii) 51 are designated Series B Preferred Stock, of which 20 shares are currently issued and outstanding, and (iii) 49 have yet been designated and are unissued.  Holders of our Series A Preferred Stock are entitled to three times (3x) voting preference over holders of common stock.  Such concentrated control of the Company may adversely affect the price of our common stock. Each one (1)n share of the Series B Preferred Stock shall have voting rights equal to (x) 0.019607 multiplied by the total number of votes of issued and outstanding shares of stock of the Company eligible to vote at the time of the respective vote (the “Numerator”), divided by (y) 0.49, minus (z) the Numerator.A stockholder that acquires common stock will not have an effective voice in the management of the Company.

 

We are a “smaller reporting company” and we cannot be certain if the reduced disclosure requirements applicable to smaller reporting companies will make our Common Stock less attractive to investors.

 

We are an “smaller reporting company,” as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act, and we may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies, including “emerging growth companies” such as, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in our periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and stockholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved. Our status as a smaller reporting company is determined on an annual basis. We cannot predict if investors will find our Common Stock less attractive or our company less comparable to certain other public companies because we will rely on these exemptions. For example, if we do not adopt a new or revised accounting standard, our future financial results may not be as comparable to the financial results of certain other companies in our industry that adopted such standards. If some investors find our Common Stock less attractive as a result, there may be a less active trading market for our Common Stock and our stock price may be more volatile.

 

The requirements of being a reporting public company may strain our resources, divert management’s attention and affect our ability to attract and retain additional executive management and qualified board members.

 

As a reporting public company, we are subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and the Dodd-Frank Act, and other applicable securities rules and regulations. Compliance with these rules and regulations will increase our legal and financial compliance costs, make some activities more difficult, time-consuming or costly and increase demand on our systems and resources, particularly after we are no longer a “smaller reporting company.” The Exchange Act requires, among other things, that we file annual, quarterly and current reports with respect to our business and results of operations. As a “smaller reporting company,” we receive certain reporting exemptions under The Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

 

Changing laws, regulations and standards relating to corporate governance and public disclosure create uncertainty for public companies, increase legal and financial compliance costs and increase time expenditures for internal personnel. These laws, regulations and standards are subject to interpretation, in many cases due to their lack of specificity, their application in practice may evolve over time as regulators and governing bodies provide new guidance. These changes may result in continued uncertainty regarding compliance matters and may necessitate higher costs due to ongoing revisions to filings, disclosures and governance practices. We intend to invest resources to comply with evolving laws, regulations and standards, and this investment may result in increased general and administrative expenses and a diversion of management’s time and attention from revenue-generating activities to compliance activities. If our efforts to comply with new laws, regulations and standards differ from the activities intended by regulatory or governing bodies due to ambiguities related to their application and practice, regulatory authorities may initiate regulatory or legal proceedings against us and our business may be adversely affected.

 

As a public company under these rules and regulations, we expect that it may make it more expensive for us to obtain director and officer liability insurance, and we may be required to accept reduced coverage or incur substantially higher costs to obtain coverage. These factors could also make it more difficult for us to attract and retain qualified members of our board of directors, particularly to serve on our audit committee and compensation committee and could also make it more difficult to attract qualified executive officers.

 

As a result of disclosure of information in this annual report and in filings required of a public company, our business and financial condition will become more visible, which we believe may result in threatened or actual litigation, including by competitors and other third parties. If such claims are successful, our business and results of operations could be adversely affected, and even if the claims do not result in litigation or are resolved in our favor, these claims, and the


22


Table of Contents


time and resources necessary to resolve them, could divert the resources of our management and adversely affect our business and results of operations.

 

Our stock price may be volatile, which may result in losses to our shareholders.

 

The stock markets experienced and may experience significant price and trading volume fluctuations, and the market prices of companies quoted on the OTCPink Marketplace operated by OTC Markets Group Inc.  , which is where our stock is currently quoted, have experienced sharp share price and trading volume changes. The trading price of our common stock is likely to be volatile and could fluctuate widely in response to many factors both in and outside of our control, and include but are not limited to the following:

 

 

variations in our operating results;

 

 

 

 

changes in expectations of our future financial performance, including financial estimates by securities analysts and investors;

 

 

 

 

changes in operating and stock price performance of other companies in our industry;

 

 

 

 

additions or departures of key personnel; and

 

 

 

 

future sales of our common stock.

 

Domestic and international stock markets often experience significant price and volume fluctuations. These fluctuations, as well as general economic and political conditions unrelated to our performance, may adversely affect the price of our common stock.  

 

Volatility in the price of our common stock may subject us to securities litigation.

 

The market for our common stock may be characterized by significant price volatility as compared to seasoned issuers, and we expect that our share price will continue to be more volatile than a seasoned issuer for the indefinite future. In the past, plaintiffs have often initiated securities class action litigation against a company following periods of volatility in the market price of its securities. We may, in the future, be the target of similar litigation. Securities litigation could result in substantial costs and liabilities and could divert management's attention and resources.

 

Our common stock may become thinly traded and you may be unable to sell at or near ask prices, or at all.

 

We cannot predict the extent to which an active public market for trading our common stock will be sustained. The trading volume of our common stock may be sporadically or “thinly-traded,” meaning that the number of persons interested in purchasing our common stock at or near bid prices at certain given time may be relatively small or non-existent.

 

This situation is attributable to a number of factors, including the fact that we are a small company which is relatively unknown to stock analysts, stock brokers, institutional investors and others in the investment community who generate or influence sales volume.  Even if we came to the attention of such persons, those persons tend to be risk-averse and may be reluctant to follow, purchase, or recommend the purchase of shares of an unproven company such as ours until such time as we become more seasoned and viable. As a consequence, there may be periods of several days or more when trading activity in our shares is minimal or non-existent, as compared to a seasoned issuer which has a large and steady volume of trading activity that will generally support continuous sales without an adverse effect on share price. We cannot give you any assurance that a broader or more active public trading market for our common stock will develop or be sustained, or that current trading levels will be sustained.

 

The market price for our common stock may become volatile given our status as a relatively small company, which could lead to wide fluctuations in our share price. You may be unable to sell your common stock at or above your purchase price if at all, which may result in substantial losses to you.

 

Stockholders should be aware that, according to SEC Release No. 34-29093, the market for penny stocks has suffered in recent years from patterns of fraud and abuse. Such patterns include but are not limited to: (1) control of the market for the security by one or a few broker-dealers that are often related to the promoter or issuer; (2) manipulation of prices through prearranged matching of purchases and sales and false and misleading press releases; (3) boiler room


23


Table of Contents


practices involving high-pressure sales tactics and unrealistic price projections by inexperienced sales persons; (4) excessive and undisclosed bid-ask differential and markups by selling broker-dealers and (5) the wholesale dumping of the same securities by promoters and broker-dealers after prices have been manipulated to a desired level, along with the resulting inevitable collapse of those prices and with consequent investor losses. Our management is aware of the abuses that have occurred historically in the penny stock market. Although we do not expect to be in a position to dictate the behavior of the market or of broker-dealers who participate in the market, management will strive within the confines of practical limitations to prevent the described patterns from being established with respect to our securities. The occurrence of these patterns or practices could increase the volatility of our share price.

 

General risk statement.

 

Based on all of the foregoing, we believe it is possible for future revenue, expenses and operating results to vary significantly from quarter to quarter and year to year. As a result, quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year comparisons of operating results are not necessarily meaningful or indicative of future performance. Furthermore, we believe that it is possible that in any given quarter or fiscal year our operating results could differ from the expectations of public market analysts or investors. In such event or in the event that adverse conditions prevail, or are perceived to prevail, with respect to our business or generally, the market price of our Common Stock would likely decline.

 

ITEM 2.   DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY

 

We currently lease virtual office space at 3773 Howard Hughes Parkway, Suite: 500 Las Vegas, NV 89169.  We pay an annual fee of $120 for this lease. During 2019, we intend to move the Company’s headquarters to Florida. There is also a location in Minnesota for Service 800, Inc. The current address of Service 800, Inc. is 110 Cheshire Lane, Minnetonka Minnesota 55305. Service 800 leases 3,210 square feet of office space under an operating lease agreement with Carlson Center East LLC. The lease, which expires June 30, 2023, requires base monthly rents of $4,160, plus operating expenses.

 

ITEM 3.   LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

A complaint against us, dated February 5, 2020, has been filed in Hennepin County, Minnesota, by Jean Mork Bredeson, the former President and former owner of Service 800, making certain claims related to the Company’s acquisition of Service 800, seeking in excess of $1.6 million in damages. The Company believes these claims to be unfounded and the Company is continuing to vigorously defend itself against this lawsuit. On March 16, 2020, the Company and Service 800 filed an answer, counterclaim and third-party claim against Ms. Bredeson and defendants Allen Bredeson and Jeff Schwedinger, former employees of Service 800.

  

In addition to the above, from time to time, we may be involved in litigation in the ordinary course of business. Other than as set forth above, we are not currently involved in any litigation that we believe could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations. Other than as set forth above, to our knowledge, 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 our executive officers or any of our subsidiaries, threatened against or affecting our Company, our common stock, any of our subsidiaries or any of our subsidiaries’ officers or directors in their capacities as such, in which an adverse decision could have a material adverse effect.

 

We know of no material, active or pending legal proceedings against us, nor are we involved as a plaintiff in any material proceedings or pending litigation.

Dividends and Dividend Policy

 

We have not previously declared nor paid any cash dividend on any shares of our Series A Preferred Stock or our Common Stock, nor have we determined to pay dividends on such shares in the foreseeable future.  We currently intend to retain future earnings, if any, to finance the expansion of our business plan and objectives.  The permissibility to pay dividends on our shares if restricted by Section 78.288 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, which provides that a company may not issue a dividend if the result of such dividend would be to make the company have negative retained earnings.  There can be no assurance that our operations will result in sufficient revenues to enable us to operate at profitable levels or to generate positive cash flows.  Furthermore, there is no assurance that the Board of Directors will declare dividends even if profitable. Dividend policy is subject to the Nevada Revised Statutes and the discretion of our Board of Directors and will depend on, among other things, our earnings, financial condition, capital requirements and other factors that our Board of Directors considers significant.

PENNY STOCK REGULATION

 

Shares of our common stock have been and will likely continue to be subject to rules adopted the SEC that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in “penny stocks.” Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a price of less than $5.00 (other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in those securities is provided by the exchange or system). The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC, which contains the following:

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

a description of the broker’s or dealer’s duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to violation to such duties or other requirements of securities’ laws;

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

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

 

Prior to effecting any transaction in penny stock, the broker-dealer also must provide the customer the following:

 

 

the bid and offer quotations for the penny stock;

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

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

 

In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written acknowledgment of the receipt of a risk disclosure statement, a written agreement to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitability statement. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity in the secondary market for a stock that becomes subject to the penny stock rules. Holders of shares of our common stock may have difficulty selling those shares because our common stock will probably be subject to the penny stock rules.

About Beyond Commerce

 

Beyond Commerce, Inc. was formed in the State of Nevada on January 12, 2006.  

 

We plan to operate within two markets: (1) the Business-to-Business Internet Marketing Technology and Services market and (2) the Information Management market. Our goal is to develop proprietary software for digital transformation of clients’ existing content. We believe our planned platform, strategy, and suite of software products and services will provide secure and scalable information control solutions for global companies.  We believe our planned software will assist organizations in finding, utilizing, and sharing business information between devices in ways that are intuitive, efficient and productive. We believe that our business model will ensure that information will remain secure and private, as necessitated by the current market climate.

 

In addition, we plan to provide solutions which facilitate the exchange of information and data transactions between supply chain participants, such as manufacturers, retailers, distributors and financial institutions. The goal is to automate potential client internal processes thereby increasing productivity and lowering costs. We plan to develop proprietary algorithms which it will embed in the planned software to enable clients to access data and gain insight into their business, through that data, leading to improved internal decision making.

 

We plan to offer the proposed software through traditional on-premise solutions, SaaS as a cloud based solution, or a combination of on-premise, SaaS or cloud based solutions. We plan to work with our clients and their needs as to which delivery method they prefer. We believe giving clients a choice and flexibility will help us to obtain long-term client value.

 

Management believes that the Company will require additional capital to manage its operations over the next 12 months.  See “Plan of Operations” below for a more complete discussion of the Company’s capital requirements.

Discover Growth Fund, LLC

On August 7, 2018, we entered into a securities purchase agreement (“SPA”) with Discover Growth Fund, LLC (“Discover”), pursuant to which we issued a senior secured redeemable convertible debenture in the principal amount of $2,717,391 (of which $217,391 was retained by Discover as an original issue discount) (the “Debenture”), in exchange for $500,000 cash consideration and a promissory note issued by BYOC in the amount of $2,000,000 (the “Note”).  Pursuant to the terms of the SPA, we issued to Discover a warrant to purchase up to 16,666,667 shares of our common stock, exercisable beginning on the six (6) month anniversary from the date of issuance for a period of three (3) years at an exercise price of $0.15 per share (the “Warrant”).  The Debenture is subject to interest at a rate of 8.0% per annum and be converted into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price equal to the lower (i) $0.15 per share of common stock, and (ii) if there has never been a trigger event (as defined in the Debenture), (A) the average of the 5 lowest individual trades of the shares of common stock, less $0.01 per share, or following any such trigger event, (B) 60% of the foregoing.  Further, pursuant to the SPA we agreed to issue 2,500,000 shares of our common stock to Discover at close of the transaction, and that Discover would fund $2,000,000 in cash upon effectiveness of the Company’s registration statement. The Discover transaction closed on August 16, 2018. We issued the 2,500,000 shares of common stock to Discover in 2019.

 

On February 12, 2019, after effectiveness of its registration statement the Company entered into the second tranche of funding from the Discover Growth Fund, LLC for $2,000,000 of which funds were utilized in the cash component of the Service 800, Inc. transaction.

 

TCA Special Situations Credit Strategies ICAV

On December 31, 2019, Beyond Commerce, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with TCA Special Situations Credit Strategies ICAV, an Irish collective asset vehicle (the “Buyer” or “TCA ICAV”), and TCA Beyond Commerce, LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company (“TCA Beyond Commerce”), pursuant to which the Buyer purchased from the Company a senior secured redeemable debenture having an initial principal amount of $900,000 and an interest rate of 16% per annum (the “Initial Debenture”). Additional Debentures may be issued and funded, subject to and upon the approval of the Company and the Buyer, provided that the total value of the Initial Debenture and the Additional Debentures together shall not exceed $5,000,000.

 

The Securities Purchase Agreement was entered into as part of a larger financing transaction between the Company and the Buyer. As part of this financing transaction, the Company and the Buyer formed TCA Beyond Commerce as a special purpose vehicle to complete the Company’s acquisition of Customer Centered Strategies, L.L.C., a Minnesota limited liability company (“CCS”), while using the funds generated through the Company’s sale of the Initial Debenture. The Company owns 80% of the outstanding common membership interests of TCA Beyond Commerce (the “Common Units”) and the Buyer owns 2,000 Common Units, comprising the remaining 20% of the Common Units issued, as well as 100% of the 250,000 Series A Preferred Units issued and the sole Series B Preferred Unit issued (which is the sole class of equity with voting rights). The Common Units and the Series A Preferred Units are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a 10% discount to the lowest closing bid price during the preceding 20 trading days and such equity will be redeemed pursuant to the Company’s making of installment payments, in accordance with the Operating Agreement of TCA Beyond Commerce. The Company has pledged its interests in TCA Beyond Commerce to TCA ICAV as security for the repayment of the Initial Debenture.

TCA Beyond Commerce entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Membership Interest Purchase Agreement”), whereby TCA Beyond Commerce acquired 100% of the authorized and issued membership interests of CCS from its sole member (the “CCS Seller”). TCA Beyond Commerce acquired the membership interests for a purchase price $525,000 (the “CCS Purchase Price”), with $175,000 to be paid in cash and the remaining $350,000 to be paid through TCA Beyond Commerce’s issuance of a convertible promissory note with an original principal of $350,000 and a conversion feature that provides the CCS Seller with the right to convert outstanding principal and accrued interest into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price based on the 10-day trailing average price of the Company’s stock (the “CCS Purchase Note”).

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates


28


Table of Contents


 

Management’s discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations are based upon its consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and the related disclosure of contingent liabilities. On an on-going basis, management evaluates past estimates and judgments, including those related to bad debts, accrued liabilities, derivative liabilities, and contingencies. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. The Company believes the following critical accounting policies affect its more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of its consolidated financial statements.

 

Our actual results could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements.  Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include but are not limited to those discussed below and elsewhere in this filing, particularly in the section entitled “Risk Factors” beginning on page 14.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Estimates are used in the determination of depreciation and amortization and the valuation for non-cash issuances of equity instruments, web site, income taxes, and contingencies, among others. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates.

 

 Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company classifies as cash and cash equivalents amounts on deposit in banks and cash temporarily in various instruments with original maturities of three months or less at the time of purchase. The Company’s cash management system is currently integrated within one banking institution. 

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The carrying value of the current assets and liabilities approximate fair value due to their relatively short maturities.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

Statement of financial accounting standard FASB Topic 820, Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments, requires that the Company disclose estimated fair values of financial instruments. The carrying amounts reported in the statements of financial position for assets and liabilities qualifying as financial instruments are a reasonable estimate of fair value.

 

The Company applies the fair value hierarchy as established by GAAP.  Assets and liabilities recorded at fair value in the consolidated balance sheets are categorized based upon the level of judgment associated with the inputs used to measure the fair value as follows.

 

Level 1 – quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2 – other significant observable inputs for the assets or liabilities through corroboration with market data at the measurement date.

 

Level 3 – significant unobservable inputs that reflect management’s best estimate of what market participants would use to price the assets or liabilities at the measurement date.

 


29


Table of Contents


Management considers all of its derivative liabilities to be Level 3 liabilities. At December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company had outstanding derivative liabilities, including those from related parties of $1,433,403 and $2,480,543, respectively.

  

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market or foreign currency risks. The Company evaluates all of its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and then is revalued at each reporting date, with changes in fair value reported in the consolidated statement of operations. For stock based derivative financial instruments, Fair value accounting requires bifurcation of embedded derivative instruments such as conversion features in convertible debt or equity instruments, and measurement of their fair value for accounting purposes. In determining the appropriate fair value, the Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. In assessing the convertible debt instruments, management determines if the convertible debt host instrument is conventional convertible debt and further if there is a beneficial conversion feature requiring measurement. If the instrument is not considered conventional convertible debt, the Company will continue its evaluation process of these instruments as derivative financial instruments.

 

Once determined, derivative liabilities are adjusted to reflect fair value at the end of each reporting period. Any increase or decrease in the fair value from inception is made quarterly and appears in results of operations as a change in fair market value of derivative liabilities.

 

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

 

The Company accounts for long-lived assets in accordance with the provisions of ASC 360-10-35-21, Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets. This statement requires that long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles be reviewed for impairment 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 net cash flows expected to be generated by the 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. Fair values are determined based on quoted market value, discounted cash flows or internal and external appraisals, as applicable. During 2018 and 2017, the Company did not recognize any impairment charges.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC 740-10-30.  Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based upon differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse.  Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance to the extent management concludes it is more likely than not that the assets will not be realized.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income of the consolidated statements of operations in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets may not be realized.

 

The Company follows the guidance of ASC 740-10-25 in determining whether tax benefits claimed or expected to be claimed on a tax return should be recorded in the financial statements.  The Company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position.  The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such a position should be measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than fifty percent (50%) likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement. The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions in income tax expense.  The Company had no material adjustments to its liabilities for unrecognized income tax benefits.

 

Stock Based Compensation

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company did not issue any stock options. This Company’s existing stock plan expired on September 11, 2018.

Employee Benefits

 

The Company during 2019 after the Service 800, Inc acquisition had approximately forty (40) employees within this organization and offers certain healthcare benefits to remain competitive within the market place. The Company also hires independent drivers within their IDriveYourCar affiliate.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company reviews all of the Financial Accounting Standard Board’s updates periodically to ensure the Company’s compliance of its accounting policies and disclosure requirements to the Codification Topics.

 

In January 2016, the FASB issued a new standard related to certain aspects of recognition, measurement, presentation, and disclosure of financial instruments. The standard will be effective for us beginning January 1, 2019. We are currently evaluating the impact of this standard on our financial statements, including accounting policies, processes, and systems. The Company believes the implementation of this new standard will not have a material impact on the financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued a new standard related to leases to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by requiring the recognition of right-of-use (“ROU”) assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet. Most prominent among the changes in the standard is the recognition of ROU assets and lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases under current U.S. GAAP. Under the standard, disclosures are required to meet the objective of enabling users of financial statements to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. We will be required to recognize and measure leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented using a modified retrospective approach, with certain practical expedients available.

 

The standard will be effective for us beginning January 1, 2019. The standard may have a material impact on our balance sheets in the future if we entered into new leases, but will not have a material impact on our statement of operations. The most significant impact will be the recognition of ROU assets and lease liabilities for operating leases.  We are currently evaluating the impact of this standard on our financial statements, including accounting policies, processes, and systems.  

 

The Company will continue to monitor these emerging issues to assess any potential future impact on its financial statements.

 

Financial Presentation

 

The following sets forth a discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018. This discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements appearing elsewhere in this Form 10k. The following discussion contains forward-looking statements. Our actual results may differ significantly from the results discussed in such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, those discussed in “Risk Factors” beginning on page 14 of this Form 10-K.

 

Results of Operations

 

The Company is no longer a shell as we commenced operations upon the completion of the acquisition of Service 800, Inc., as of March 4th, 2019 and PathUX on May 31, 2019. 

 

For the Years Ended December 31, 2019 and 2018

 

Revenue

 

Revenue is $5,044,687 and zero for the year ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The main attribute for the revenue pick-up is through the acquisition of Service 800 and PathUX.

 

Operating Expenses

 

For year ended December 31, 2019, operating expenses were $7,339,409 and for year ended December 31, 2018, operating expenses were $1,760,810. The significant increase in operating expenses resulted from cost of revenue of $1,692,932 and payroll of $2,106,872, as we now have a significant amount of employees. Other items which contributed

Table of Contents


to the increase were $1,386,857 from general and administrative expenses and depreciation of the assets acquired in the acquisitions, in the amount of $646,667.

 

Non-operating income (expense)

 

The Company reported non-operating expense of $3,169,799 and $2,535,429 during the year ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. This increase of $634,370 was due to the derivative expense and debt fees associated with the Discover Growth Fund Note.

 

Net Income (Loss)

 

For year December 31, 2019, the Company incurred a net loss of $5,464,521 as compared to a net loss of $4,296,240 for year ended December 31, 2018, which was primarily due to a change in derivative liability and interest on the Discover Note Payable. As of December 31, 2019, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $48,227,200 and as of December 31, 2018, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $42,762,681

  

Plan of Operations

 

We are an early stage corporation that intends to operate as an IMT&S provider.  We have not yet generated or realized any revenues from our business.  As of December 31, 2019, we currently have $680,809 cash on hand. Upon the closing of the TCA transaction we received $900,000 in accordance with our securities purchase agreement.  At such time, we had sufficient capital to satisfy our cash requirements in connection with our acquisition of Customer Centered Strategies, LLC.  Upon receipt of these funds, however, we believe we will require additional funds of approximately $1,000,000 to satisfy our cash requirements as we implement our business plan and operate our business.  This capital will be used to build out our infrastructure, to provide for the payment of advisory and accounting services, legal, lease of our office space and anticipated up-listing fees to a national securities exchange. However, there can be no assurance that we will qualify for either exchange or that our application will be approved.

 

Over the course of the 12-month period, we plan to raise capital to support our business plan through equity financing, debt financing, or other sources, which may result in further dilution in the equity ownership of our shares. There is no assurance that we will be able to maintain operations at a level sufficient for an investor to obtain a return on their investment in our common stock, or that we will be able to raise sufficient capital required to implement our business plan on acceptable terms, if at all. Even if we are successful in raising sufficient capital to implement our business plan, we may continue to be unprofitable.

 

Purchase of Significant Equipment

 

We do not anticipate the purchase or sale of any plant or significant equipment during the next 12 months.

 

Going Concern

 

There is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

As of December 31, 2019, we had an accumulated deficit of $48,227,200 and have generated nominal revenues.  Since we discontinued operations in 2012 the continuity of our future operations is dependent upon our ability to increase sales and brand awareness. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.  We intend to continue relying upon the issuance of debt and equity securities to finance our operations.  In this regard, we are restricted by the number of shares available for issuance in an equity financing, and we will likely need to increase our authorized capital in order to take advantage of such financing.  However, there can be no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining shareholder approval to increase our authorized capital. However, there can be no assurance we will be successful in raising the funds necessary to maintain operations, or that a self-supporting level of operations will ever be achieved.  The likely outcome of these future events is indeterminable.  Our financial statements do not include any adjustment to reflect the possible future effect on the recoverability and classification of the assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result should we cease to continue as a going concern. 

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on our ability to raise additional capital and implement our business plan.  Since inception, we have been funded by related parties through capital investment and borrowing of funds.

Table of Contents


We had total current assets of $ 2,070,851 and $79,890 as of December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.  Current assets would consist primarily of cash, the value of software, trademarks patents, websites and other intellectual properties. The Company had a $48,227,200 accumulated deficit on its balance sheet as of December 31, 2019.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and
Stockholders of Beyond Commerce, Inc.

Opinion on the Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Beyond Commerce, Inc. (the Company) as of December 31,  2019 and 2018, and the related statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2019, 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, 2019 and 2018, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2019, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

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

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 3 to the financial statements, the Company has incurred losses, has not generated sufficient revenue to cover its operating costs, and may be unable to raise further equity in support of operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans regarding those matters are also described in Note 3. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Basis for Opinion

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

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

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE 1.  DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Beyond Commerce, Inc. ( the “Company”,”BCI” and “we”), has a planned business objective to develop, acquire, and deploy disruptive strategic software technology and market-changing business models through selling our own products and the acquisitions of existing companies. We plan to offer a cohesive digital product and services platform to provide our future clients with a single point of contact for all their internet Marketing Technology and Services (IMT&S) and information Management (IM) initiatives.

 

 Basis of Presentation

 

The consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 included herein include the accounts of the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiaries Service 800 Inc., Path UX, IDriveYourCar and Customer Centered Strategies, LLC., which the Company has an 80% investment interest.

 

The consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC.  All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

NOTE 2. ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

 Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Estimates are used in the determination of depreciation and amortization and the valuation for non-cash issuances of equity instruments, web site, income taxes, and contingencies, among others. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates.

 

 Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company classifies as cash and cash equivalents amounts on deposit in banks and cash temporarily in various instruments with original maturities of three months or less at the time of purchase. The Company’s cash management system is currently integrated within one banking institution. 

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The carrying value of the current assets and liabilities approximate fair value due to their relatively short maturities.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

Statement of financial accounting standard FASB Topic 820, Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments, requires that the Company disclose estimated fair values of financial instruments. The carrying amounts reported in the statements of financial position for assets and liabilities qualifying as financial instruments are a reasonable estimate of fair value. 

 

The Company applies the fair value hierarchy as established by GAAP.  Assets and liabilities recorded at fair value in the consolidated balance sheets are categorized based upon the level of judgment associated with the inputs used to measure the fair value as follows.

 

Level 1 – quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2 – other significant observable inputs for the assets or liabilities through corroboration with market data at the measurement date.


F-7


Table of Contents


 

Level 3 – significant unobservable inputs that reflect management’s best estimate of what market participants would use to price the assets or liabilities at the measurement date.

 

The application of the three levels of the fair value hierarchy under Topic 820-10-35 to our assets and liabilities are described below:

Management considers all of its derivative liabilities to be Level 3 liabilities. At December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively the Company had outstanding derivative liabilities, including those from related parties of $1,433,403 and $2,480,543, respectively.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognize revenue in accordance with FASB ASC Subtopic 606-10, Revenue Recognition. We recognize revenue as we transfer control of deliverables (products, solutions and services) to our customers in an amount reflecting the consideration to which we expect to be entitled. To recognize revenue, we apply the following five step approach: (1) identify the contract with a customer, (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (3) determine the transaction price, (4) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, and (5) recognize revenue when a performance obligation is satisfied. We account for a contract based on the terms and conditions the parties agree to, the contract has commercial substance and collectability of consideration is probable. The Company applies judgment in determining the customer’s ability and intention to pay, which is based on a variety of factors including the customer’s historical payment experience.

 

The majority of the Company’s revenue is generated by the completion of a survey. Revenue is recognized and customers are billed at the point in time a survey occurs or when a related service is complete. The Company may require a deposit from new customers for set up costs or as down payments. These amounts are not significant to the financial statements. Revenue is also derived from PathUX’s iDriveYourCar subsidiary, which matches professional chauffeurs with passengers who want to be driven in their own car within the New York City area. The Company maintains an exclusive network independent drivers. Revenue is complete when the services are provided traditionally through credit card payments.

 

Accounts receivable

 

The Company’s accounts receivable arise primarily from the sale of the Company’s products. On a periodic basis, the Company evaluates each customer account and based on the days outstanding of the receivable, history of past write-offs, collections, and current credit conditions, writes off accounts it considers uncollectible. With most of our retail and distribution partners, invoices will typically be due in 30 or 45 days. The Company does not accrue interest on past due


F-8


Table of Contents


accounts and the Company does not require collateral. Accounts become past due on an account-by-account basis. Determination that an account is uncollectible is made after all reasonable collection efforts have been exhausted. The Company has not provided any sales allowances for December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are carried at cost, and are being depreciated using the straight-line over the estimated useful lives as follows:

 

Equipment, Furniture and fixtures

5-7 years

Software

16-60 months

Vehicles

7 years

 

When retired or otherwise disposed, the carrying value and accumulated depreciation of the property and equipment is removed from its respective accounts and the net difference less any amount realized from disposition, is reflected in earnings. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs which do not extend the useful lives of the related assets are expensed as incurred.

 

Valuation of Derivative Instruments

 

ASC 815 “Derivatives and Hedging” requires that embedded derivative instruments be bifurcated and assessed, along with free-standing derivative instruments such as warrants, on their issuance date and measured at their fair value for accounting purposes. In determining the appropriate fair value, the Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing formula. Upon conversion of a note where the embedded conversion option has been bifurcated and accounted for as a derivative liability, the Company records the shares at fair value, relieves all related notes, derivatives and debt discounts and recognizes a net gain or loss on debt extinguishment.

 

Management used the following inputs to value the Derivative Liabilities for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively:

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market or foreign currency risks. The Company evaluates all of its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and then is revalued at each reporting date, with changes in fair value reported in the consolidated statement of operations. For stock based derivative financial instruments, Fair value accounting requires bifurcation of embedded derivative instruments such as conversion features in convertible debt or equity instruments, and measurement of their fair value for accounting purposes. In determining the appropriate fair value, the Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. In assessing the convertible debt instruments, management determines if the convertible debt host instrument is conventional convertible debt and further if there is a beneficial conversion feature requiring measurement. If the instrument is not considered conventional convertible debt, the Company will continue its evaluation process of these instruments as derivative financial instruments.

 

Once determined, derivative liabilities are adjusted to reflect fair value at the end of each reporting period. Any increase or decrease in the fair value from inception is made quarterly and appears in results of operations as a change in fair market value of derivative liabilities.

 

Purchase Price Allocation


F-9


Table of Contents


 

In accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations, the Company recorded the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at their respective estimated fair values as of their respective acquisition dates, based on internal company evaluations. The total estimated purchase prices were allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets with a finite life consist of Technology/Intellectual Property; Customer Base; Tradename/Trademarks; Assembled Workforce; and Non–Compete Agreements, and are carried at cost less accumulated amortization. The Company amortizes the cost of identified intangible assets on a straight-line basis over the expected period of benefit, which is generally three years for customer relationships and the contractual term for covenants not to compete, which range from five to ten years.

 

These intangible assets of Technology/Intellectual Property; Customer Base; Tradename/Trademarks; Assembled Workforce; and Non–Compete Agreements were valued based on the appropriate application of the Income, Market, and Cost Approaches. Accordingly, the Company believes that these intangible assets will contribute to its cash flows between two and ten years, with any excess carrying value over the fair value being recognized as an impairment loss. The Company performs its annual impairment test as of December 31st of each year.

 

Goodwill

 

Goodwill is recognized and initially measured as any excess of the acquisition-date consideration transferred in a business combination over the acquisition-date amounts recognized for the net identifiable assets acquired. Goodwill is not amortized but is tested for impairment annually, or more frequently if an event occurs or circumstances change that would more likely than not result in an impairment of goodwill. Impairment testing is performed at the reporting unit level. A reporting unit is defined as an operating segment or one level below an operating segment, referred to as a component. A component of an operating segment is a reporting unit if the component constitutes a business for which discrete financial information is available and segment management regularly reviews the operating results of that component. The goodwill impairment analysis is a single-step quantitative assessment that identifies both the existence of impairment and the amount of impairment loss by comparing the estimated fair value of a reporting unit to its carrying value, with any excess carrying value over the fair value being recognized as an impairment loss, limited to the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. The Company performs its annual goodwill impairment test as of December 31st of each year and has identified one reporting unit that currently carries a goodwill balance.

 

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

 

The Company accounts for long-lived assets in accordance with the provisions of ASC 360-10-35-21, Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets. This statement requires that long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles be reviewed for impairment 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 net cash flows expected to be generated by the 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. Fair values are determined based on quoted market value, discounted cash flows or internal and external appraisals, as applicable. During 2019 and 2018, the Company did not recognize any impairment charges.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC 740-10-30.  Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based upon differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse.  Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance to the extent management concludes it is more likely than not that the assets will not be realized.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets


F-10


Table of Contents


and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income of the consolidated statements of operations in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets may not be realized.

 

The Company follows the guidance of ASC 740-10-25 in determining whether tax benefits claimed or expected to be claimed on a tax return should be recorded in the financial statements.  The Company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position.  The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such a position should be measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than fifty percent (50%) likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement. The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions in income tax expense.  The Company had no material adjustments to its liabilities for unrecognized income tax benefits.

  

Stock Based Compensation

 

During the years ending December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company did not issue any stock options. The former stock based compensation plan expired on September 11, 2018.  

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company reviews all of the Financial Accounting Standard Board’s updates periodically to ensure the Company’s compliance of its accounting policies and disclosure requirements to the Codification Topics.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) and subsequently amended the guidance relating largely to transition considerations under the standard in January 2017, to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by requiring the recognition of right-of-use (“ROU”) assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet. Most prominent among the changes in the standard is the recognition of ROU assets and lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases under current U.S. GAAP. Under the standard, disclosures are required to meet the objective of enabling users of financial statements to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases.

 

The standard was effective for us beginning January 1, 2019. The adoption of this standard did not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement, which eliminates certain disclosure requirements for fair value measurements for all entities, requires public entities to disclose certain new information and modifies some disclosure requirements. The new guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 and for interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted in interim periods, including periods for which financial statements have not been issued or financial statements have not been made available for issuance. The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements. 

 

The Company will continue to monitor these emerging issues to assess any potential future impact on its financial statements. The Company has taken the position that any future standards will not be disclosed to the extent they are not material to our operations.

 

NOTE 3. GOING CONCERN

 

The company's financial statements are prepared using generally accepted accounting principles, which contemplate the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.  Because of recent events, the Company cannot state with certainty of its ability to continue. The accompanying consolidated financial statements for December 31, 2019 and 2018 have been prepared assuming that we will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.

 

The Company has suffered losses from operations and has a working capital deficit, which raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management is taking steps to raise additional funds to address its operating and financial cash requirements to continue operations in the next twelve months. Management has devoted a significant amount of time in attempting to raise capital from additional debt and equity financing. Due to its nominal revenues, the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon raising additional funds through debt


F-11

and equity financing and generating revenue, including through the recent acquisition of Service 800 and PathUX or through a merger transaction with a well-capitalized entity. There are no assurances the Company will receive the necessary funding or generate revenue necessary to fund operations. If we are unable to obtain additional funds, or if the funds cannot be obtained on terms favorable to us, we will be required to delay, scale back or eliminate our plans to continue to develop and expand our operations or in the extreme situation, cease operations altogether.

On August 7, 2018, we entered into a securities purchase agreement (“SPA”) with Discover Growth Fund, LLC (“Discover”), pursuant to which we issued a senior secured redeemable convertible debenture in the principal amount of


F-13


Table of Contents


$2,717,391 (of which $217,391 was retained by Discover as an original issue discount) (the “Debenture”), in exchange for $500,000 cash consideration and a promissory note issued to BYOC in the amount of $2,000,000 (the “Note”).

 

 Pursuant to the terms of the SPA, we issued to Discover a warrant to purchase up to 16,666,667 shares of our common stock, exercisable beginning on the six (6) month anniversary from the date of issuance for a period of three (3) years at an exercise price of $0.15 per share (the “Warrant”).  

 

The Debenture is subject to interest at a rate of 8.0% per annum and can be converted into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price equal to the lower of (i) $0.15 per share of common stock, and (ii) if there has never been a trigger event (as defined in the Debenture), (A) the average of the 5 lowest individual trades of the shares of common stock, less $0.01 per share, or following any such trigger event, (B) 60% of the foregoing. However, at no time can the debenture be converted at a price below $0.001 per share.

 

During the first quarter 2019 Discover Growth Fund LLC issued the additional $2,000,000 to the Company and converted $1,060,486 of the aggregate debt. During the current quarter Discover Growth Fund LLC converted $61,000 of their outstanding debt and interest.

 

 

On September 14, 2018, the Company issued a short-term convertible note payable for $50,000.  The note was originally due on February 14, 2019 and bears interest at a rate of 15% per annum.  The note is convertible into shares of common stock at $0.10 per share. The company is currently negotiating an extension with the noteholder, and has paid $5,000 for accrued interest during the third quarter. This note is currently past due and is being negotiated to cure, nevertheless this note has no default provisions.

 

On November 27, 2018, the Company received funding in conjunction with a convertible promissory note and a security purchase agreement dated November 27, 2018, in the amount of $250,000. The lender was Auctus Fund LLC. The notes have a maturity of August 27, 2019 and interest rate of 12% per annum and are convertible at a price of 60% of the lowest trading price on the primary trading market on which the Company’s Common Stock is then listed for the twenty-five (25) trading days immediately prior to conversion. The note may be prepaid, but carries a penalty in association with the remittance amount, as there is an accretion component to satisfy the note with cash. The Company is currently negotiating an extension with the noteholder as it is currently past due. As a result of a default provision, the interest rate has increased to 24%.

On March 5, 2018, the Company’s board of directors increased the authorized shares by 10,000,000 bringing the total authorized to 1,010,000,000.

On August 26, 2019, the Company filed an amendment to its Articles of Incorporations to increase the number of shares of authorized Common Stock to 2,030,000,000. 

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019 the Company issued 396,729,678 shares valued at $1,463,417 for the conversion of certain debt and accrued interest into shares of our stock. Also, during these twelve months the Company issued 70,000,000 shares valued at $427,000, which was based on the stock price for our stock on the date of the close, in relation to the acquisition of PathUX and 10,825,000 shares valued at $303,925 for services provided in lieu of cash.

Generally, all matters to be voted on by stockholders must be approved by a majority (or, in the case of election of directors, by a plurality) of the votes entitled to be cast by all shares of our common stock that are present in person or represented by proxy.  A vote by the holders of a majority of our outstanding shares is required to effectuate certain fundamental corporate changes such as liquidation, merger or an amendment to our Articles of Incorporation. Our Articles of Incorporation do not provide for cumulative voting in the election of directors. Holders of our common stock have no pre-emptive rights, no conversion rights and there are no redemption provisions applicable to our common stock.

Preferred Stock

 

We are authorized to issue up to 250,000,000 shares of our “blank check” preferred stock, par value of $0.001. Effective July 27, 2017, we designated 250,000,000 of our “blank check” preferred shares as Series A Preferred Stock, all of which are issued and outstanding. Each share of Series A Preferred Stock entitles its holder to (i) cumulative, non-participating dividends in preference and priority to any declaration or payment of a dividend on any of the Company’s common stock, at a rate of 12% per annum, and (ii) three times (3x) voting preference over common stock.  As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, there were 249,999,900 and 250,000,000 issued and outstanding shares of Series A preferred stock.

 

Following cancellation of 100 shares of Series A preferred stock, such 100 shares of preferred stock were returned to treasury, increasing the number of shares of authorized undesignated preferred stock from 0 to 100. The Board designated 51 of such 100 shares as Series B Preferred. Each share of Series B Preferred carries approximately 1% of the voting power, but these shares do not have any economic rights. The Board issued 20 shares of the Series B Preferred to Geordan Pursglove; the remaining 31 shares of Series B Preferred are authorized but unused. There are 49 shares of authorized but undesignated preferred stock. The value of this transaction is $293,000 based on an independent valuation of the transaction. The value of this transaction is $293,000 based on an independent valuation of the transaction.

 

Warrants

 

The Company entered into an agreement in 2018 in conjunction with convertible notes payable to issue seven (7) warrants to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock which have an exercise price of $0.15 or 65% of the three lowest trading days within a 20-day market price timeframe, whichever is lower.  The warrants also contain certain cashless exercise features. The issuance of these warrants is predicated on the completion of the funding requirements within the terms of the security agreement, however, these funding requirements were never met. The Company is currently negotiating a settlement with respect to any warrants.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Discover Growth Fund SPA, we issued to Discover warrant to purchase up to 16,666,667 shares of our common stock upon the subsequent funding of the remaining $2,000,000 which occurred on February 28, 2019, exercisable beginning on the nine (9) month anniversary from the date of issuance for a period of three (3) years at an exercise price of $0.15 per share (the “Warrant”). In determining the appropriate fair value, the Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, and based on the relative fair value of the warrant and cash received, we recorded a debt discount on the note principle of $696,850. Management used the following inputs to value the Discover Warrants by Expected Term – 3 years, Exercise Price - $0.15, Expected Volatility- 388.94%, Expected dividends – None, and Risk-Free Rate – 2.54%

 

As of December 31, 2019, no warrants have vested.

 

2008 Equity Incentive Stock Option Plan

 

During the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company did not issue any stock options. This Company’s existing stock plan expired on September 11, 2018.

 

Dividends

 

The Company anticipates that all future earnings will be retained to finance future growth.  The payment of dividends, if any, in the future to the Company’s common stockholders is within the discretion of the Board of Directors of the Company and will depend upon the Company’s earnings, its capital requirements and financial condition and other relevant factors.  The Company has not paid a dividend on its common stock and does not anticipate paying any dividends on its common stock in the foreseeable future but instead intends to retain all earnings, if any, for use in the Company’s business operations.

At December 31, 2019, the Company had estimated U.S. federal net operating losses of approximately $26,227,700 for income tax purposes which will expire between 2028 and 2029.  For financial reporting purposes, the entire amount of the net deferred tax assets has been offset by a valuation allowance due to uncertainty regarding the realization of the assets.  The net change in the total valuation allowance for the year ended December 31, 2019 was a decrease of $2,059,933 mainly attributable to timing differences in accruals and NOL utilization in the current year.  The Company follows FASC 740-10-25 P which requires a company to evaluate whether a tax position taken by the company will “more likely than not” be sustained upon examination by the appropriate tax authority.  The Company has analyzed filing positions in all of the federal and state jurisdictions where it is required to file income tax returns, as well as all open tax years in these jurisdictions. The Company believes that its income tax filing positions and deductions would be sustained on audit and does not anticipate any adjustments that would result in a material change to its financial position.  Therefore, no reserves for uncertain income tax positions have been recorded.

 

The Company may not be able to utilize the net operating loss carryforwards for its US income taxes in future periods should it experience a change in ownership as defined in Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”).  Under section 382, should the Company experience a more than 50% change in its ownership over a 3 year period, the Company would be limited based on a formula as defined in the IRC to the amount per year it could utilize in that year of the net operating loss carryforwards.   As of December 31, 2019, the Company had not performed an analysis to determine if the Company was subject to the provisions of Section 382. The Company is subject to U.S. federal income tax including state and local jurisdictions. Currently, no federal or state income tax returns are under examination by the respective taxing jurisdictions.

 

The Company's accounting policy is to recognize interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions in income tax expense. The Company has not accrued interest for any periods in which there are uncertain tax positions.

 NOTE 12. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Legal Matters

 

A complaint against us, dated February 5, 2020, has been filed in Hennepin County, Minnesota, by Jean Mork Bredeson, the former President and former owner of Service 800, making certain claims related to the Company’s acquisition of Service 800, seeking in excess of $1.6 million in damages. The Company believes these claims to be unfounded and the Company is continuing to vigorously defend itself against this lawsuit. On March 16, 2020, the Company and Service 800 filed an answer, counterclaim and third-party claim against Ms. Bredeson and defendants Allen Bredeson and Jeff Schwedinger, former employees of Service 800.

  

In 2008 the Company filed suit against its former co-founder, President, Chief Executive Officer George Pursglove for breach of confidentiality and non-compete while employed and also postemployment, breach of fiduciary duty and other matters, and the Company was seeking to enforce certain non-compete agreements.  The former CEO subsequently counter-sued the Company for breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing and other matters.  The former CEO was seeking to be awarded $75,000 in cash plus at least 3.3 million shares of stock of the Company.  On July 28, 2011, the Company received a jury verdict ordering and adjudging in Case Number 2:08-cv-00496-KJD-LRL where BOOMj.com was the Plaintiff and the former CEO was the Defendant & Counterclaimant, that a judgment be entered in favor of the Defendant and Counterclaimant against the Plaintiff, BOOMj.com, in the amount of $20,775 for damages as to the claim for failure to pay wages, $3,000,000 for damages as to the conversion claim, and $3,000,000 for punitive damages. This debt was forgiven during the third quarter in the amount of $8,360,224 as the estate believed there was no future value on holding this judgement against the Company and felt that the elimination of this significant liability may provide better avenues of funding going forward. The Company recorded this as an adjustment to Additional Paid in Capital as this was a liability assumed in previous years.

 

In addition to the above, from time to time, we may be involved in litigation in the ordinary course of business. Other than as set forth above, we are not currently involved in any litigation that we believe could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations. Other than as set forth above, to our knowledge, 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 our executive officers or any of our subsidiaries, threatened against or affecting our Company, our common stock, any of our subsidiaries or any of our subsidiaries’ officers or directors in their capacities as such, in which an adverse decision could have a material adverse effect.

 

Operating Lease

 

We currently lease virtual office space at 3773 Howard Hughes Parkway, Suite: 500 Las Vegas, NV 89169.  We pay an annual fee of $120 for this lease. During 2019, we intend to move the Company’s headquarters to Florida. There is also a location in Minnesota for Service 800, Inc. on February 20, 2020 the company moved Service 800, Inc. to 110 Cheshire Lane, Minnetonka Minnesota 55305. Service 800 leases 3,210 square feet of office space under an operating lease agreement with Carlson Center East LLC. The lease, which expires June 30, 2023, requires base monthly rents of $4,160, plus operating expenses.

NOTE 13.  NET INCOME (LOSS) PER SHARE OF COMMON STOCK

 

The Company follows ASC 260-10, which requires presentation of basic and diluted Earnings per Share (“EPS”) on the face of the income statement for all entities with complex capital structures and requires a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the basic EPS computation to the numerator and denominator of the diluted EPS computation. In the accompanying consolidated financial statements, basic net income (loss) per share of common stock is computed by dividing the net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the year.  Basic net income (loss) per common share is based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, options and warrants are assumed to be exercised at the beginning of the period (or at the time of issuance, if later), and as if funds obtained thereby were used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period.

Table of Contents


Convertible debt that is convertible into 2,603,664,933 and 39,834,276 shares of the Company’s common stock are not included in the computation, along with 249,999,900 and 250,000,000 of the Company’s preferred stock, for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Additionally, there are 16,666,667 and zero warrants that are exercisable into shares of stock as of December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively, and there is an outstanding issue with Iliad, a former noteholder that claims warrants as being issued and outstanding that could result in 1,308,286 shares being issued. The Company is currently in negotiations over the issue. As warrants are exercisable above the current market rate, they would be excluded from any dilute share calculations.  

 

The following is a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the basic and diluted earnings per share computations for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018:

Description of the Transactions

 

Service 800, Inc.

 

On March 4, 2019 Jean Mork Bredeson, Founder and President of Service 800, Inc., received $1,890,000 in cash, a short term cash hold back of $210,000 and $2,100,000 in a three year 5.5% promissory note. The $2,100,000 promissory note is personally guaranteed by Geordan Pursglove Beyond Commerce’s President, CEO. On July 18, 2018 Jean Mork Bredeson received 2,000,000 shares of Beyond Commerce’s restricted common stock, and directed the issuance of 3,000,000 additional shares to three other individuals as part of the business combination as follows: On July 18, 2018 Allen Bredeson, Vice President of Marketing and Client Relations, received 1,000,000 shares of Beyond Commerce’s restricted common stock. Derick White, Vice President of Sales received 1,000,000 shares of Beyond Commerce’s restricted common stock, and Jeff Schwendinger, Vice President of Operations received 1,000,000 shares of Beyond Commerce’s restricted common stock. The effective date of this business combination between Beyond Commerce and Service 800, is February 28, 2019, when Beyond Commerce received 100% of Service 800 stock, assets consisting of the company’s website, customer lists, current customer base, and customer’s in the company’s pipeline and proprietary software. 

 

 This acquisition  combined resources and customer base to support more productivity and help in the development of new product lines. Beyond Commerce started consolidating Service 800 Inc for financial reporting purposes as of March 1, 2019. From the date of acquisition to December 31, 2019, Service 800 reported revenue of $ 4,099,925.

 

The fair value of the purchase consideration issued to Service 800 Inc. was allocated to the net tangible assets acquired. The Company accounted for the Acquisition as the purchase of a business under GAAP under the acquisition method of accounting, and the assets and liabilities acquired were recorded as the acquisition date, at their respective fair values and consolidated with those of the Company. The fair value of the net assets acquired was approximately $3,881,241. The excess of the aggregate fair value of the net tangible assets has been allocated to goodwill of $1,299,144. The company wrote down the asset value of Service 800, Inc. by approximately $635,000 mainly attributable to the value of the shares of stock issued to certain employees of Service 800, Inc. as the belief this was not considered an essential component of the transaction and not valued accordingly.

 

The following table summarizes the estimated fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on external evaluations at the date of acquisition:

On December 31, 2019 TCA Beyond Commerce, a joint venture which is 80% owned by Beyond Commerce entered into a Membership Interest Purchase, whereby TCA Beyond Commerce acquired 100% of the authorized and issued membership interests of CCS from its sole member. TCA Beyond Commerce acquired the membership interests for a purchase price $525,000 (the “CCS Purchase Price”), with $175,000 to be paid in cash and the remaining $350,000 to be paid through TCA Beyond Commerce’s issuance of a convertible promissory note with an original principal of $350,000 and a conversion feature that provides the CCS with the right to convert outstanding principal and accrued interest into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price based on the 10-day trailing average price of the Company’s stock.

In addition to the CCS purchase price, the CCS and Service 800, Inc., entered into an employment agreement whereby the CCS will be employed by Service 800 as Vice President of Operations and Technologies for a period of six months.

NOTE 16.  SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

Impact of Disease Outbreak and Management’s Plans

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of a respiratory disease caused by a new coronavirus as a “pandemic”. First identified in late 2019 and known now as COVID-19, the outbreak has impacted thousands of individuals worldwide. In response, many countries have implemented measures to combat the outbreak which have impacted global business operations, including drastic reductions or stoppages in international flights by all major international airline carriers which are serviced by the Company. 

Majority of the states within the United States have issued a stay at home order to its residents and have required closure of all in-store retail restaurants. Accordingly, the Company’s revenues associated with our business model has drastically declined through date of the financial statements and its results of operations, cash flows and financial condition have been negatively impacted by the pandemic.

The impact of the disease outbreak, as of the date of the financial statements, remains highly fluid and uncertain.  The Company is unable to predict, with any sort of certainty, the timing for the end of international travel restrictions, along with the subsequent recovery and resumption of normal operations of its airline customer base.  Similarly, the Company is unable to predict the timing for resumption of normal purchasing activity related to its freshly prepared meals business with its largest customer.  Accordingly, the financial impact on the results of operations, cash flows and financial condition cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.  No impairments were recorded as of the balance sheet date; however, due to significant uncertainty surrounding the situation, management's judgment regarding this could change in the future.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles, which contemplate continuation of the Company as a going concern. The Company has sustained operating losses in 2020 through the date of the financial statements as its revenue has significantly decreased for reasons described above. 

Management believes the following actions being taken to revise the Company's operations during the pandemic provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern:

 

The Company continues to maintain the business working with customers to fit their needs - We are also offering COVID19 type services. We have clients in the medical field and are offering to do survey work for them in regards to their response for the COVID outbreak so they can document how they are doing as a company. We are in touch with our customers daily, we have even discussed switching them from phone calls to web surveys until this has passed. Along with the above the Company is applying for the Paycheck Protection funds to assist in maintaining our employee bas

TEM 9A.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures

 

Our management, with the participation of our President (“Certifying Officers”), has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the fiscal period covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K. Based upon such evaluation, the Certifying Officers have concluded that, as of the end of such period, December 31, 2019, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Certifying Officers, to allow timely decisions regarding such disclosure.

 

Management’s report on internal control over financial reporting

 

Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act) for the Company. The Company maintains processes designed by, or under the supervision of the Company’s management, including but not limited to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and its Chief Accounting Officer, or persons performing similar functions, and effected by the Company’s board of directors, management and other personnel, 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 including policies and procedures that: (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and disposition of the assets of the Company; (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the issuer are being made only in accordance with authorization of management and directors of the Company; and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

The Company has an Audit Committee that meets periodically with management to review the manner in which they are performing their responsibilities and to discuss auditing, internal accounting controls and financial reporting matters.

 

Management has conducted an evaluation of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting using the Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission as a basis to evaluate effectiveness and determined that internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of the end of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019. Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s President concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting is not effective due to the material weakness noted below.  A material weakness is a control deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. The following material weakness has been identified. The Company downsized its workforce in 2019 and at December 31, 2019 did not have sufficient people with complex accounting expertise on certain matters to support its internal control over financial reporting which impacted its financial close process.

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Our internal control over financial reporting was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the SEC that permit the

Company to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

 

Changes in internal controls over financial reporting

 

There were no significant changes in the Company's internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) of the Exchange Act) during the year ended December 31, 2018, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

Board Composition

 

Corporate Governance and Director Independence

 

Our business and affairs are managed under the direction of our Board of Directors, which consist of four members. The Company’s common stock is currently listed for quotation on the OTCPink Marketplace operated by OTC Markets Group Inc.    In determining whether any of its directors are independent, the Company has applied the definition for “Independent Directors” set out in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(a)(2), as the OTC Markets Group, Inc. does not provide such a definition.

 

Under Nasdaq rules, independent directors must comprise a majority of a listed company’s Board of Directors within a specified period after completion of this offering. In addition, Nasdaq rules require that, subject to specified exceptions, each member of a listed company’s audit, compensation and nominating and governance committees be independent, subject to certain phase-ins for newly-public companies. Under Nasdaq rules, a director will only qualify as an “independent director” if, in the opinion of that company’s Board of Directors, that person does not have a relationship that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director.

 

Audit committee members must also satisfy the independence criteria set forth in Rule 10A-3 under the Exchange Act. In order to be considered independent for purposes of Rule 10A-3, a member of an audit committee may not, other than in his or her capacity as a member of the audit committee, the board of directors, or any other board committee (1) accept, directly or indirectly, any consulting, advisory, or other compensatory fee from the listed company or any of its subsidiaries or (2) be an affiliated person of the listed company or any of its subsidiaries.

 

Our Board of Directors has undertaken a review of its composition, the composition of its proposed committees and the independence of each director. Based upon information requested from and provided by each director concerning his or her background, employment and affiliations, including family relationships, our Board of Directors has determined that Messrs. Fred Maxik, Robert E. Honeyman and Peter M. Stazzone do not have any relationships that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director and that each of these directors is “independent” as that term is defined under the applicable rules and regulations of the SEC and the listing requirements and rules of Nasdaq. In making this determination, our Board of Directors considered the current and prior relationships that each non-employee director has with our Company and all other facts and circumstances our board of directors deemed relevant in determining their independence, including the beneficial ownership of our capital stock by each non-employee director.

Geordan Pursglove, managing member of The 2GP Group LLC, which holds 206,250,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, is the President, CEO and Director of the Company, as well as the son of Former CEO George Pursglove.

  

Board Committees

 

Our Board of Directors will consist of an audit committee, a compensation committee and a nominating and corporate governance committee. Our Board of Directors may establish other committees to facilitate the management of our business. The expected composition and functions of the audit committee, compensation committee and nominating and corporate governance committee are described below. Members will serve on committees until their resignation or until otherwise determined by our Board of Directors.

 

Audit Committee

 

Our audit committee consist of Messrs. Maxik, Honeyman and Stazzone, with Mr. Stazzone serving as the chairman. Our Board of Directors has determined that Mr. Stazzone is an “audit committee financial expert” within the meaning of the SEC regulations. Our Board of Directors has also determined that each member of our audit committee can read and understand fundamental financial statements in accordance with applicable requirements. In arriving at these determinations, the Board of Directors has examined each audit committee member’s scope of experience and the nature of their employment in the corporate finance sector. The functions of this committee include:

 

 

selecting a qualified firm to serve as the independent registered public accounting firm to audit our financial statements;

 

 

 

 

helping to ensure the independence and performance of the independent registered public accounting firm;

 

 

 

 

discussing the scope and results of the audit with the independent registered public accounting firm, and reviewing, with management and the independent accountants, our interim and year-end operating results;

identifying and recommending candidates for membership on our Board of Directors;

 

 

 

 

including nominees recommended by stockholders;

 

 

 

 

reviewing and recommending the composition of our committees;

making recommendations to our Board of Directors concerning governance matters.

 

The nominating and corporate governance committee also annually reviews the nominating and corporate governance committee charter and the committee’s performance.

 

Board Leadership Structure and Role in Risk Oversight

 

Due to the small size and early stage of the Company, we have not adopted a formal policy on whether the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer positions should be separate or combined.

 

Our board of directors is primarily responsible for overseeing our risk management processes on behalf of our company. The board of directors receives and reviews periodic reports from management, auditors, legal counsel, and others, as considered appropriate regarding our company’s assessment of risks. The board of directors focuses on the most significant risks facing our company and our company’s general risk management strategy, and also ensures that risks undertaken by our Company are consistent with the board’s appetite for risk. While the board oversees our company’s risk management, management is responsible for day-to-day risk management processes. We believe this division of responsibilities is the most effective approach for addressing the risks facing our company and that our board leadership structure supports this approach.

 

Code of Ethics

 

Our board of directors intends to adopt a code of ethics that our officers, directors and any person who may perform similar functions will be subject to.

ITEM 12. SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS

 

Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions

 

On July 27, 2017, we authorized the issuance of 250,000,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock to Mr. George Pursglove, further reducing the July Judgment by $250,000.  

 

On August 15, 2017, Mr. Pursglove directed the issuance of (i) 206,250,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, valued at approximately $206,250, to The 2GP Group, LLC, an entity controlled by Geordan Pursglove, President, and (ii) 43,750,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, valued at approximately $43,750, to Fiona Oakley, an unrelated third party.  As discussed elsewhere in this Form 10-K, each share of Series A Preferred Stock entitles its holder to (i) cumulative, non-participating dividends in preference and priority to any declaration or payment of a dividend on any of the Company’s common stock, at a rate of 12% per annum, and (ii) three times (3x) voting preference over common stock.

 

On December 31, 2019 the Company canceled 100 shares of Series A preferred stock which were owned by Mr. Pursglove through the entity The 2GP Group LLC, Such 100 shares of preferred stock were returned to treasurey, increasing the number of shares of authorized undesignated preferred stock from 0 to 100. The Board designated 51 of such 100 shares as Series B Preferred. Each share of Series B Preferred carries approximately 1% of the voting power, but these shares do not have any economic rights. The Board issued 20 shares of the Series B Preferred to Geordan Pursglove; the remaining 31 shares of Series B Preferred are authorized but unused. There are 49 shares of authorized but undesignated preferred stock. The value of this transaction is $293,000 based on an independent valuation of the transaction.

Applicable percentage ownership is based on 1,505,004,678 shares of common stock outstanding 249,999,900 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, and 20 shares of Series B Preferred Stock issued and outstanding as of February 13, 2020. Under Rule 13d-3, a beneficial owner of a security includes any person who, directly or indirectly, through any contract, arrangement, understanding, relationship, or otherwise has or shares: (i) voting power, which includes the power to vote, or to direct the voting of shares; and (ii) investment power, which includes the power to dispose or direct the disposition of shares. Certain shares may be deemed to be beneficially owned by more than one person (if, for example, persons share the power to vote or the power to dispose of the shares). In addition, shares are deemed to be beneficially owned by a person if the person has the right to acquire the shares (for example, upon exercise of an option) within 60 days of the date as of which the information is provided. In computing the percentage ownership of any person, the amount of shares outstanding is deemed to include the number of shares beneficially owned by such person (and only such person) by reason of these acquisition rights. As a result, the percentage of outstanding shares of any person as shown in this table does not necessarily reflect the person’s actual ownership or voting power with respect to the number of shares of common stock actually outstanding as of February 13, 2020.
