Forward Looking Information

 

This annual report contains statements about future events and expectations that are characterized as “forward-looking statements.” Forward-looking statements are based upon management’s beliefs, assumptions, and expectations. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause our actual results, performance, and financial condition to be materially different from the expectations of future results, performance, and financial condition we express or imply in such forward-looking statements. You are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Except as required by federal securities laws, we disclaim any intent or obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

 

ITEM 1 - BUSINESS

 

Overview

 

BoxScore Brands, Inc. (formerly U-Vend Inc.) (the “Company”) most recently has developed, marketed and distributed various self-serve electronic kiosks and mall/airport co-branded islands throughout North America. The Company had placed its kiosks in high-traffic host locations such as big box stores, restaurants, malls, airports, casinos, universities, and colleges. Currently, the Company is exploring opportunities to best utilize the equipment remaining after a sale of assets noted below.

 

Due to the recent closures and lockdowns, the Company has worked with its creditors to return the underutilized equipment and save the Company substantial costs in current and future expenditures. This is allowing the Company to focus on continuing their long lasting relationships with their partners and also to free up capital to explore new business opportunities and ventures.

 

On February 26, 2018, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation. The Certificate of Amendment changed its name to BoxScore Brands, Inc. from U-Vend Inc., to better reflect the nature of the Company’s then current business operations, which has expanded to include relationships with major sports organizations dispensing ice cream products through vending machines.

 

Asset Sale

 

On March 18, 2019, the Company approved an asset sale of the assets related to the legacy MiniMelts brand for $350,000 in cash, which was approved by a majority of its shareholders. These MiniMelts assets generated 100% of the revenue reported during the year ended December 31, 2019. During the year ended December 31, 2018, MiniMelts sales accounted for approximately $1,100,000, or 85%, of the revenue reported during that period. Part of the proceeds from the sale was used to retire certain lease obligations as well as for general operating purposes.

 

The Company is evaluating opportunities and expects to leverage its remaining vending assets to pursue new revenue streams and test concepts for new offerings at retail. Also, the Board of Directors had agreed to begin to explore the development of certain products in the cannabis industry with a focus on non-THC Cannabinoids in frozen desserts as well as other complementary CBD product offerings though vending as well as online sales and direct to retail, under a new brand. Current market conditions and a global pandemic has negatively affected management’s original go-to-market strategy and has forced the company to reevaluate all market opportunities.

 

Distribution

 

The Company distributed novelty ice cream products, MLB Ice Cream and Nightfood frozen desserts, through a network of automated retail vending kiosks and reach in freezers. On April 25, 2019 the Company signed a distribution agreement with Pellequr, LLC for the distribution and marketing of CBD salves, tinctures, bath products and vape pens.

 

Our main distribution partner for our CBD products, Neiman Marcus, filed for bankruptcy and no longer carries our products.

 

Other Operational Matters

 

The Company’s marketing activities are conducted through sales representatives. Raw materials used in the Company’s operations are widely available but are purchased from a limited number of sources to obtain favorable prices and terms. Refocusing our resources will allow the Company to broaden our relationships and operate in a more cost-effective fashion.

Corporate Information and Incorporation

 

BoxScore Brands, Inc. was incorporated in March 2007 as a Delaware corporation and we refer to the company as “we”, “us”, the “Company”, “BoxScore Brands” or “BoxScore” in this annual report. In February 2018, we filed an amendment to our certificate of incorporation to change our corporate name from U-Vend Inc. to BoxScore Brands, Inc. to better reflect the nature of our current business operations. We are headquartered in Las Vegas, NV. Our corporate office was located at 3675 1759 Clear River Ln, Henderson, NV 89012 and our telephone number is (855) 558-8363. Our corporate website address is www.boxscore.com. Information contained on our websites is not a part of this annual report.

 

Available Information

ITEM 1A - RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in our securities is subject to numerous risks, including the Risk Factors described below. Our business, operating results or financial condition could be materially adversely affected by any of the following risks. The risks described below are not the only ones we face. Additional risks we are not presently aware of or that we currently believe are immaterial may also materially affect our business. In such case, we may not be able to proceed with our planned operations and your investment may be lost entirely. The trading price of our common stock could decline due to any of these risks. In assessing these risks, you should also refer to the other information contained or incorporated by reference in this Form 10-K, including our consolidated financial statements. An investment in our securities should only be acquired by persons who can afford to lose their entire investment without adversely affecting their standard of living or financial security.

 

We have a limited operating history and may not be able to achieve financial or operational success.

 

We were founded in March 2007, initiated our first operating business in October 2009, exited from our first operating business in March 2013, and acquired another operating business in January 2014, which we modified, sold certain operating assets and retained others, and started up our latest business in April 2019. We have a limited operating history with respect to this or any newly acquired business. As a result, we may not be able to achieve sustained financial or operational success, given the risks, uncertainties, expenses, delays and difficulties associated with an early-stage business in an evolving market.

 

Our growth strategy includes acquisitions that entail significant execution, integration and operational risks.

 

We are pursuing a growth strategy based in part on acquisitions, with the objective of creating a combined company that we believe can achieve increased cost savings and operating efficiencies through economies of scale especially in the integration of administrative services. We will seek to make additional acquisitions in the future to increase our revenue.

 

This growth strategy involves significant risks. There is significant competition for acquisition targets in our markets. Consequently, we may not be able to identify suitable acquisitions or may have difficulty finding attractive businesses for acquisition at reasonable prices. If we are unable to identify future acquisition opportunities, reach agreement with such third parties or obtain the financing necessary to make such acquisitions, we could lose market share to competitors who are able to make such acquisitions. This loss of market share could negatively impact our business, revenues and future growth.

 

2

 

 

Any acquisition we make exposes us to risks.

 

Any acquisition we make carries risks which could result in an adverse effect on our financial condition. These risks include:

 

  diversion of our attention from normal daily operations of our vending business to acquiring and assimilating new businesses;
     
  the use of substantial portions of any cash we have available;
     
  failure to understand the needs and behaviors of users for a newly acquired business or other product;
     
  redundancy or overlap between existing products and services, on the one hand, and acquired products and services, on the other hand;
     
  difficulty assimilating operations, technologies, products and policies of acquired businesses; and
     
  assuming liabilities, including unknown and contingent liabilities, of acquired businesses.

 

If we are unable to develop and market new product offerings or fail to predict or respond to emerging trends, our revenue and any profitability will suffer.

 

Our future success will depend in part on our ability to modify or enhance our product offerings marketed through our vending kiosks to meet user’s demands. If we are unable to predict preferences or industry changes, or if we are unable to modify our product offerings in a timely manner, we may lose revenue. New products may be dependent upon our ability to enter into new relationship with suppliers, which we may not be able to obtain in a timely manner, upon terms acceptable to us, or at all. We spend significant resources developing and enhancing our product offerings. However, new or enhanced product offerings may not be accepted by customers. If we are unable to successfully source and market new product offerings in a timely and cost-effective manner, our revenue and any profitability will suffer.

 

If we fail to develop and diversify product offerings, we could lose market share.

 

The market for selling products through vending kiosks has a low barrier to entry which creates a high level of competition. To remain competitive, we must continue to find, market, and sell new products through our vending kiosks. The time, expense and effort associated with such development may be greater than anticipated, and any products actually introduced by us may not achieve consumer acceptance. Furthermore, our efforts to meet changing customer needs may require the development or licensing of products at great expense. If we are unable to develop and bring to market additional products, we could lose market share to competitors, which could negatively impact our business, revenues and future growth.

 

The increased security risks of online advertising and e-commerce may cause us to incur significant expenses and may negatively impact our credibility and business.

 

A significant prerequisite of online commerce, advertising, and communications is the secure transmission of confidential information over public networks. Concerns over the security of transactions conducted on the Internet, consumer identity theft and user privacy have been significant barriers to growth in consumer use of the Internet, online advertising, and e-commerce. A significant portion of our sales is billed directly to our customers’ credit card accounts. We rely on encryption and authentication technology licensed from third parties to effect secure transmission of confidential information. Encryption technology scrambles information being transmitted through a channel of communication to help ensure that the channel is secure even when the underlying system and network infrastructure may not be secure. Authentication technologies, the simplest example of which is a password, help to ensure that an individual user is who he or she claims to be by “authenticating” or validating the individual’s identity and controlling that individual’s access to resources. Despite our implementation of security measures, however, our computer systems may be potentially susceptible to electronic or physical computer break-ins, viruses and other disruptive harms and security breaches. Advances in computer capabilities, new discoveries in the field of cryptography or other developments may specifically compromise our security measures. Any perceived or actual unauthorized disclosure of personally identifiable information regarding website visitors, whether through breach of our network by an unauthorized party, employee theft or misuse, or otherwise, could harm our reputation and brands, substantially impair our ability to attract and retain our customers, or subject us to claims or litigation arising from damages suffered by consumers, and thereby harm our business and operating results. If consumers experience identity theft after using any of our services, we may be exposed to liability, adverse publicity and damage to our reputation. To the extent that identity theft gives rise to reluctance to use our websites or a decline in consumer confidence in financial transactions over the Internet, our businesses could be adversely affected. Alleged or actual breaches of the network of one of our business partners or competitors whom consumers associate with us could also harm our reputation and brands. In addition, we could incur significant costs in complying with the multitude of state, federal and foreign laws regarding the unauthorized disclosure of personal information. For example, California law requires companies that maintain data on California residents to inform individuals of any security breaches that result in their personal information being stolen. Because our success depends on the acceptance of online services and e-commerce, we may incur significant costs to protect against the threat of security breaches or to alleviate problems caused by such breaches. Internet fraud has been increasing over the past few years, and fraudulent online transactions, should they continue to increase in prevalence, could also adversely affect the customer experience and therefore our business, operating results and financial condition.

We depend on key management, product management, technical and marketing personnel for continued success.

 

Our success and future growth depend, to a significant degree, on the skills and continued services of our management team, including Andrew Boutsikakis, our President and Chief Executive Officer. Our ongoing success also depends on our ability to identify, hire and retain skilled and qualified technical and marketing personnel in a highly competitive employment market. As we develop and acquire new products and services, we will need to hire additional employees. Our inability to attract and retain well-qualified managerial, technical and sales and marketing personnel may have a negative effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.

 

We may be required to seek additional funding, and such funding may not be available on acceptable terms or at all.

 

We may seek additional funding, however due to a number of factors beyond our expectations or control, including a shortfall in revenue, increased expenses, a need for working capital for growth, increased investment in capital equipment or the acquisition of businesses, services or technologies. The required funding may not be available on acceptable terms, or at all. If we are unable to obtain sufficient funding, our business would be harmed. Even if we were able to find outside funding sources, we might be required to issue securities in a transaction that could be highly dilutive to our investors or we may be required to issue securities with greater rights than the securities we have outstanding today. We may also be required to take other actions that could lessen the value of our common stock, including borrowing money on terms that are not favorable to us. If we are unable to generate or raise capital that is sufficient to fund our operations, we may be required to curtail operations, reduce our services, defer or cancel expansion or acquisition plans or cease operations in certain jurisdictions or completely.

 

The termination, non-renewal or renegotiation on materially adverse terms of our contracts or relationships with one or more of our significant host locations, product suppliers and partners could seriously harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

The success of our business depends in large part on our ability to maintain contractual relationships with our host locations in profitable locations. Our typical host location agreement ranges from one to three years and automatically renews until we or the host retailer gives notice of termination. Certain contract provisions with our host locations vary, including product and service offerings, the commission fees we are committed to pay each host location, and the ability to cancel the contract upon notice after a certain period of time. We strive to provide direct and indirect benefits to our host locations that are superior to, or competitive with, other providers or systems or alternative uses of the floor space that our kiosks occupy. If we are unable to provide our host retailers with adequate benefits, we may be unable to maintain or renew our contractual relationships on acceptable terms, causing our business, financial condition and results of operations to suffer.

 

We depend upon third-party manufacturers, suppliers and service providers for our kiosks.

 

We depend on outside parties to manufacture our kiosks. We intend to continue to expand our installed base of kiosks. Such expansion may be limited by the manufacturing capacity of our third-party manufacturers and suppliers. Third-party manufacturers may not be able to meet our manufacturing needs in a satisfactory and timely manner. If there is an unanticipated increase in demand for our kiosks or our manufacturing needs are not met in a timely and satisfactory manner, we may be unable to meet demand due to manufacturing limitations which could seriously harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

In addition, we rely on third-party service providers for substantial support and service efforts that we currently do not provide directly. Any failure by us to maintain our existing support and service relationships or to establish new relationships on a timely basis or on acceptable terms could harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Disruptions in our supply chain and other factors affecting the distribution of our products could adversely impact our business.

 

A disruption within our supply chain network could adversely affect our ability to deliver inventory in a timely manner, which could impair our ability to meet customer demand for products and result in lost sales, increased costs or damage to our reputation. Such disruptions may result from damage or destruction to our warehouse facility; weather-related events; natural disasters; third-party strikes, lock-outs, work stoppages or slowdowns; supply or shipping interruptions or costs; or other factors beyond our control. Any such disruption could negatively impact our financial performance or financial condition. We procured all our merchandise of inventory of finished goods ice cream from one vendor during the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018.

If we cannot execute on our strategy and offer new automated retail products and services.

 

Our strategy is based upon leveraging our core competencies in the automated retail space and relationships with certain potential distribution points to provide the consumer with convenience and value and to help retailers drive incremental traffic and revenue. To be competitive, we need to develop, or otherwise provide, new product and service offerings that are accepted by the market and establish third-party relationships necessary to develop and commercialize such product and service offerings. We are exploring new businesses to enter, and new products and services to offer, however, the complexities and structures of these new businesses could create conflicting priorities, constrain limited resources, and negatively impact our core businesses. We may use our financial resources and managements’ time and focus to invest in other companies offering automated retail services, or we may seek to grow businesses organically, or we may seek to offer new products on our current kiosks. We may enter into joint ventures through which we may expand our product offerings. We have significant relationships with certain professional sports organizations which is an important part of our growth strategy. Our dependence on these relationships is critical to our future business success. Should we have problems or lose these relationships we would be at risk. Any new business opportunity also may have its own unique risks related to operations, finances, intellectual property, technology, legal and regulatory issues, corporate governance or other challenges, for which we may have limited or no prior experience. In addition, if we fail to timely establish or maintain relationships with significant retailers and suppliers, we may not be able to provide our consumers with desirable new products and services. Further, in order to develop and commercialize certain new products and services, we will need to create new kiosks or enhance the capabilities of our current kiosks, as well as adapt our related networks and systems through appropriate technological solutions and establish market acceptance of such products or services. We cannot assure you that new products or services that we provide will be successful or profitable.

 

Failure to adequately comply with information security policies or to safeguard against breaches of such policies could adversely affect our operations and could damage our business, reputation, financial position and results of operations.

 

As our business expands to provide new products and services, we are increasing the amount of consumer data that we collect, transfer and retain as part of our business. These activities are subject to laws and regulations, as well as industry standards, in the United States and other jurisdictions in which our products and services are available. These requirements, which often differ materially and sometimes conflict among the many jurisdictions in which we operate, are designed to protect the privacy of consumers’ personal information and to prevent that information from being inappropriately used or disclosed. We maintain and review technical and operational safeguards designed to protect this information and generally require third party vendors and others with whom we work to do so as well. However, despite those safeguards, it is possible that hackers, employees acting contrary to our policies, third-party agents or others could improperly access relevant systems or improperly obtain or disclose data about our consumers, or that we may be determined not to be in compliance with applicable legal requirements and industry standards for data security, such as the Payment Card Industry guidelines. A breach or purported breach of relevant security policies that compromises consumer data or determination of non-compliance with applicable legal requirements or industry standards for data security could expose us to regulatory enforcement actions, card association or other monetary fines or sanctions, or contractual liabilities, limit our ability to provide our products and services, subject us to legal action and related costs and damage our business reputation, financial position, and results of operations.

 

Litigation, arbitration, mediation, regulatory actions, investigations or other legal proceedings could result in material rulings, decisions, settlements, fines, penalties or publicity that could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Our industry has in the past been, and may in the future continue to be, party to class actions, regulatory actions, investigations, arbitration, mediation and other legal proceedings. The outcome of such proceedings is often difficult to assess or quantify. Plaintiffs, regulatory bodies or other parties may seek very large or indeterminate amounts of money from us or substantial restrictions on our business activities, and the results, including the magnitude, of lawsuits, actions, settlements, decisions and investigations may remain unknown for substantial periods of time. The cost to defend, settle or otherwise finalize lawsuits, regulatory actions, investigations, arbitrations, mediations or other legal proceedings may be significant and such proceedings may divert management’s time. In addition, there may be adverse publicity associated with any such developments that could decrease consumer acceptance of our products and services. As a result, litigation, arbitration, mediation, regulatory actions or investigations involving us may adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

We are subject to substantial federal, state, local and foreign laws and government regulation specific to our business.

 

Our business is subject to federal, state, local and foreign laws and government regulation, including those relating to copyright law, federal and state laws around CBD, access to kiosks in public places, consumer privacy and protection, data protection and information security, taxes, vehicle safety, weights and measures, payment cards and other payment instruments, food and beverages, sweepstakes, and contests. The application of existing laws and regulations, changes in laws or enactment of new laws and regulations, that apply, or may in the future apply, to our current or future products or services, changes in governmental authorities’ interpretation of the application of various government regulations to our business, or the failure or inability to gain and retain required permits and approvals could materially and adversely affect our business. This includes laws surrounding the use of CBD related products.

 

In addition, many jurisdictions require us to obtain certain licenses in connection with the operations of our businesses. There can be no assurance that we will be granted all necessary licenses or permits in the future, that current licenses or permits will be renewed or that regulators will not revoke current licenses or permits. Given the unique nature of our business and new products and services we may develop or acquire in the future, the application of various laws and regulations to our business is uncertain. Further, as governmental and regulatory scrutiny and action with regard to many aspects of our business increase, we expect that our costs of complying with the applicable legal requirements may increase, perhaps substantially.

 

5

 

 

Failure to comply with these laws and regulations could result in, among other things, revocation of required licenses or permits, loss of approved status, termination of contracts, administrative enforcement actions and fines, class action lawsuits, cease and desist orders and civil and criminal liability. The occurrence of one or more of these events, as well as the increased cost of compliance, could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

If we cannot manage our growth effectively, we could experience a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

As we begin to scale our business we may make errors in predicting and reacting to relevant business trends, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations. For example, we may, among other things, over-install kiosks in certain geographic areas leading to non-accretive installations, and we cannot be certain that historical revenue experience for new kiosks will be sustainable in the future.

 

This growth may place significant demands on our operational, financial and administrative infrastructure and our management. As our operations grow in size, scope and complexity, we anticipate the need to integrate, as appropriate, and improve and upgrade our systems and infrastructure, both those relating to providing attractive and efficient consumer products and services and those relating to our administration and internal systems, processes and controls. This integration and expansion of our administration, processes, systems and infrastructure may require us to commit and will continue to cause us to commit, substantial financial, operational and technical resources to managing our business.

 

Managing our growth will require significant expenditures and allocation of valuable management and operational resources. If we fail to achieve the necessary level of efficiency in our organization, including otherwise effectively growing our business lines, our business, operating results and financial condition could be harmed.

 

We may not have the ability to pay interest on our Notes, to repurchase the convertible notes upon a fundamental change or to settle conversions of the Notes, as may be required.

 

If a fundamental change occurs under the indenture governing our Notes, holders of the Notes may require us to repurchase, for cash, all or a portion of their Notes. In addition, upon satisfaction of certain conversion conditions (including conditions outside of our control, such as market price or trading price) and proper conversion of the Notes by a holder, we will be required to make cash payments. Depending on the amount and timing of the payment requirements, we may not have been able to meet all of the obligations relating to Note conversions, which could have had a material adverse effect.

 

Further, if we fail to pay interest on, carry out the fundamental change repurchase obligations relating to, or make payments (including cash) upon conversion of, the Notes, we will be in default under the indenture governing the Notes. A default under the indenture or the fundamental change itself could also lead to a default under agreements governing our existing and future indebtedness. If the repayment of indebtedness were to be accelerated, including after any applicable notice or grace periods, we may not, among other things, have sufficient funds to repay indebtedness or pay interest on, carry out our repurchase obligations relating to, or make cash payments upon conversion of, the Notes.

 

Conversion of our convertible notes into common stock will result in additional dilution to our stockholders.

 

Upon satisfaction of certain conversion conditions (including conditions outside of our control, such as market price or trading price) and proper conversion of the Notes by a holder, we may be required to deliver shares of our common stock to a converting holder. If additional shares of our common stock are issued due to conversion of some or all of the outstanding Notes, the ownership interests of existing stockholders will be diluted. Further, any sales in the public market of any shares of common stock issued upon conversion or hedging or arbitrage trading activity that develops due to the potential conversion of the Notes could adversely affect prevailing market prices of our common stock.

 

Competitive pressures could seriously harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

The nature and extent of consolidations and bankruptcies, which often occur during or as a result of economic downturns, in markets where we install our kiosks, particularly the supermarket and other retailing industries, could adversely affect our operations, including our competitive position, as the number of installations and potential retail users of our kiosks could be significantly reduced. See the risk factor below entitled, “Events outside of our control, including the current economic environment, has negatively affected, and could continue to negatively affect, consumers’ use of our products and services.”

 

6

 

 

Our business can be adversely affected by severe weather, natural disasters and other events beyond our control, such as earthquakes, fires, power failures, telecommunication loss and terrorist attacks.

 

A catastrophic event that results in the destruction or disruption of any of our critical business or information technology systems could harm our ability to conduct normal business operations and our operating results. While we have taken steps to protect the security of critical business processes and systems and have established certain back-up systems and disaster recovery procedures, any disruptions, whether due to inadequate back-up or disaster recovery planning, failures of information technology systems, interruptions in the communications network, or other factors, could seriously harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

In addition, our operational and financial performance is a direct reflection of consumer use of and the ability to operate and service our kiosks used in our business. Severe weather, natural disasters and other events beyond our control can, for extended periods of time, significantly reduce consumer use of our products and services as well as interrupt the ability of our employees and third-party providers to operate and service our kiosks.

 

Our failure to meet consumer expectations with respect to pricing our products and services may adversely affect our business and results of operations.

 

Demand for our products and services may be sensitive to pricing changes. We evaluate and update our pricing strategies from time to time and changes we institute may have a significant impact on, among other things, our revenue and net income (loss).

 

We may be unable to attract new host locations, broaden current host relationships, and penetrate new markets and distribution channels.

 

In order to increase our kiosk installations, we need to attract new host locations, broaden relationships with current host locations, and develop operational efficiencies that make it feasible for us to penetrate low density markets and new distribution channels. We may be unable to attract host locations or drive down costs relating to the manufacture, installation or servicing of our kiosks to levels that would enable us to operate profitably in lower density markets or penetrate new distribution channels. If we are unable to do so, our future financial performance could be adversely affected.

 

Payment of increased fees to host locations or other third-party service providers could negatively affect our business results.

 

We face ongoing pricing pressure from our host locations to increase the commission fees we pay to them on our products and services or to make other financial concessions to win or retain their business. If we are unable to respond effectively to ongoing pricing-related pressures, we may fail to win or retain certain accounts. Our fee arrangements are based on our evaluation of unique factors with each host retailer, such as total revenue, long-term, non-cancelable contracts, installation of our kiosks in high-traffic, geographic locations and new product and service commitments. Together with other factors, an increase in service fees paid, or other financial concessions made, to our host retailers could significantly increase our direct operating expenses in future periods and harm our business.

 

Events outside of our control, including the current economic environment, have negatively affected, and could continue to negatively affect, consumers’ use of our products and services.

 

Our consumers’ use of many of our products and services is dependent on discretionary spending, which is affected by, among other things, economic and political conditions, consumer confidence, interest and tax rates, and financial and housing markets. With economic uncertainty still affecting potential consumers, we may be impacted by more conservative purchasing tendencies with fewer non-essential products and services purchased during the coming periods if the current economic environment continues. In addition, because our business relies in part on consumers initially visiting host locations to purchase products and services that are not necessarily our products and services, if consumers are visiting host retailers less frequently and being more careful with their money when they do, these tendencies may also negatively impact our business. Further, our ability to obtain additional funding in the future, if and as needed, through equity issuances or loans, or otherwise meet our current obligations to third parties, could be adversely affected if the economic environment continues to be difficult. In addition, the ability of third parties to honor their obligations to us could be negatively impacted, as host retailers, suppliers and other parties deal with the difficult economic environment. Finally, there may be consequences that will ultimately result from the current economic conditions that are not yet known, and any one or more of these unknown consequences (as well as those currently being experienced) could potentially have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, operating results and liquidity, as well as our business generally.

Our future operating results may fluctuate.

 

Our future operating results will depend significantly on our ability to continue to drive new and repeat use of our kiosks, our ability to develop and commercialize new products and services, and our ability to successfully integrate acquisitions and other third-party relationships into our operations. Our operating results could fluctuate and may continue to fluctuate based upon many factors, including:

 

  fluctuations in revenue generated by kiosk businesses and our wholesale distributors;
     
  fluctuations in operating expenses, such as transaction fees and commissions we pay to our host locations;
     
  our ability to establish or maintain effective relationships with significant partners, host locations and suppliers on acceptable terms;
     
  the amount of service fees that we pay to our host locations;
     
  the transaction fees we charge consumers to use our services;
     
  the commercial success of our host locations, which could be affected by such factors as general economic conditions, severe weather or strikes;
     
  the successful use and integration of assets and businesses acquired or invested in;
     
  the level of product or price competition;
     
  the timing and cost of, and our ability to develop and successfully commercialize, new or enhanced products and services;
     
  activities of, and acquisitions or announcements by, competitors; and
     
  the impact from any impairment of inventory, goodwill, fixed assets or intangibles related to our acquisitions and divestitures.

 

Risks Related to our Securities

 

Since our common stock is thinly traded it is more susceptible to extreme rises or declines in price, and you may not be able to sell your shares at or above the price paid.

 

Since our common stock is thinly traded, its trading price is likely to be highly volatile and could be subject to extreme fluctuations in response to various factors, many of which are beyond our control, including:

 

  trading volume of our shares;
     
  number of securities analysts, market-makers and brokers following our common stock;
     
  changes in, or failure to achieve, financial estimates by securities analysts;
     
  new products or services introduced or announced by us or our competitors;
     
  actual or anticipated variations in quarterly operating results;
     
  conditions or trends in our business industries;
     
  announcements by us of significant contracts, acquisitions, strategic partnerships, joint ventures or capital commitments;
     
  additions or departures of key personnel;
     
  sales of our common stock; and
     
  general stock market price and volume fluctuations of publicly-traded, and particularly microcap, companies.

 

8

 

 

The stock markets often experience significant price and volume changes that are not related to the operating performance of individual companies, and because our common stock is thinly traded it is particularly susceptible to such changes. These broad market changes may cause the market price of our common stock to decline regardless of how well we perform as a company. In addition, securities class action litigation has often been initiated following periods of volatility in the market price of a company’s securities. A securities class action suit against us could result in substantial legal fees, potential liabilities and the diversion of management’s attention and resources from our business. Moreover, our shares are currently quoted on the OTC Pink and, further, are subject to the penny stock regulations. Price fluctuations in such shares are particularly volatile and subject to manipulation by market-makers, short-sellers and option traders.

 

Our common stock may be considered “penny stock”, further reducing its liquidity.

 

Our common stock may be considered “penny stock”, which will further reduce the liquidity of our common stock. Our common stock is likely to fall under the definition of “penny stock,” trading in the common stock is limited because broker-dealers are required to provide their customers with disclosure documents prior to allowing them to participate in transactions involving the common stock. These disclosure requirements are burdensome to broker-dealers and may discourage them from allowing their customers to participate in transactions involving our common stock, thereby further reducing the liquidity of our common stock.

 

“Penny stocks” are equity securities with a market price below $5.00 per share other than a security that is registered on a national exchange, included for quotation on the NASDAQ system or whose issuer has net tangible assets of more than $2,000,000 and has been in continuous operation for greater than three years. Issuers who have been in operation for less than three years must have net tangible assets of at least $5,000,000.

 

Rules promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under Section 15(g) of the Exchange Act require broker-dealers engaging in transactions in penny stocks, to first provide to their customers a series of disclosures and documents including:

 

  A standardized risk disclosure document identifying the risks inherent in investment in penny stocks;
     
  All compensation received by the broker-dealer in connection with the transaction; and
     
  Current quotation prices and other relevant market data; and Monthly account statements reflecting the fair market value of the securities.

 

These rules also require that a broker-dealer obtain financial and other information from a customer, determine that transactions in penny stocks are suitable for such customer and deliver a written statement to such customer setting forth the basis for this determination.

 

Our directors and executive officers will continue to exert significant control over our future direction, which could reduce the sale value of our Company.

 

As of May 10, 2021, our Board of Directors and our executive officers beneficially owned approximately 11% of our common stock. Accordingly, these stockholders, if they act together, will have considerable influence over matters requiring approval of our stockholders, including the election of directors and approval of significant corporate transactions. This concentration of ownership, which could result in a continued concentration of representation on our Board of Directors, may delay, prevent or deter a change in control and could deprive our stockholders of an opportunity to receive a premium for their common stock as part of a sale of our assets.

 

Investors should not anticipate receiving cash dividends on our common stock, thereby depriving investors of yield on their investment.

 

We have never declared or paid any cash dividends or distributions on our common stock and intend to retain future earnings, if any, to support our operations and to finance expansion. Therefore, we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on the common stock in the foreseeable future. Such failure to pay a dividend will deprive investors of any yield on their investment in our common stock.

 

Our indemnification of officers and directors and limitations on their liability could limit our recourse against them.

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws contain broad indemnification and liability limiting provisions regarding our officers, directors and employees, including the limitation of liability for certain violations of fiduciary duties. Stockholders therefore will have only limited recourse against these individuals.

If we fail to implement and maintain proper and effective internal controls and disclosure controls and procedures, our ability to produce accurate and timely financial statements and public reports could be impaired, which could adversely affect our operating results, our ability to operate our business and investors’ views of us.

 

Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 requires the Company to evaluate the effectiveness of its internal control over financial reporting as of the end of each year, and to include a management report assessing the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting in each Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

We have identified our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective and that material weaknesses exists in our internal control over financial reporting. The material weaknesses consist of an insufficient complement of qualified accounting personnel and controls associated with segregation of duties and ineffective controls associated with identifying and accounting for complex and non-routine transactions in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Due to the material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures, there may be errors in the Company’s consolidated financial statements and in the accompanying footnote disclosures that could require restatements. Investors may lose confidence in our reported financial information and disclosure, which could negatively impact our stock price.

 

We do not expect that our internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system’s objectives will be met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. Over time, controls may become inadequate because changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies or procedures may occur. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

 

We have additional common stock and preferred stock available for issuance, which, if issued, could adversely affect the rights of the holders of our common stock.

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation authorizes the issuance of up to 600,000,000 shares of our common stock and up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock. The common stock and the preferred stock can be issued by the Board of Directors, without stockholder approval. As of May 10, 2021, there were 37,717,755 shares of our common stock outstanding. Further, as of May 10, 2021, there were convertible notes outstanding that can be converted into approximately 88 million shares of our common stock.

Securities Authorized for Issuance under Equity Compensation Plans

 

On July 22, 2011, the Board of Directors of the Company approved the Company’s 2011 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) and on July 26, 2011, stockholders holding a majority of shares of the Company approved, by written consent, the Plan and the issuance under the Plan of 5,000,000 shares. On November 16, 2017, the Board of Directors approved an increase of 10,000,000 shares to be made available for issuance under the Plan. Accordingly, the total number of shares of common stock available for issuance under the Plan is 15,000,000 shares. Awards may be granted to employees, officers, directors, consultants, agents, advisors and independent contractors of the Company and its related companies. Such options may be designated at the time of grant as either incentive stock options or nonqualified stock options. Stock based compensation includes expense charges related to all stock-based awards. Such awards include options, warrants and stock grants. Generally, the Company issues stock options that vest over three years and expire in 5 to 10 years.

 

The Company records share based payments under the provisions of FASB ASC 718. Stock based compensation expense is recognized over the requisite service period based on the grant date fair value of the awards. The fair value of each option grant is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model on certain assumptions. The Company estimated the expected volatility based on data used by peer group of public companies. The expected term was estimated using the simplified method. The risk-free interest rate assumption was determined using the equivalent U.S. Treasury bonds yield over the expected term. The Company has never paid any cash dividends and does not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. Therefore, the Company assumed an expected dividend yield of zero.

 

The following table sets forth information as of December 31, 2019 regarding equity compensation plans under which the equity securities are authorized for issuance.

ITEM 7 - MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

Certain statements contained herein constitute “forward-looking statements”. Except for the historical information contained herein, this report contains forward-looking statements (identified by the words “estimate,” “project,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “expect,” “intend,” “believe,” “hope,” “strategy” and similar expressions), which are based on our current expectations and speak only as of the date made. These forward-looking statements are subject to various risks, uncertainties and factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results anticipated in the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, those discussed under Part I, Item 1A “Risk Factors” in this Annual Report, and those described herein that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results anticipated in the forward-looking statements, and the following:

 

  Our limited operating history with our business model;
     
  The low cash balance and limited financing currently available to us. We may in the near future have a number of obligations that we will be unable to meet without generating additional income or raising additional capital;
     
  Further cost reductions or curtailment in future operations due to our low cash balance and negative cash flow;
     
  Our ability to effect a financing transaction to fund our operations which could adversely affect the value of our stock;
     
  Our limited cash resources may not be sufficient to fund continuing losses from operations;
     
  The failure of our products and services to achieve market acceptance; and
     
  The inability to compete in our market, especially against established industry competitors with greater market presence and financial resources.

 

The following discussion and analysis provides information that our management believes is relevant to an assessment and understanding of our results of operations and financial condition, and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and footnotes that appear elsewhere in this report.

 

Overview

 

The Company develops, markets and distributes various self-serve electronic kiosks and mall/airport co-branded islands throughout North America. The Company seeks to place its kiosks in high-traffic host locations such as big box stores, restaurants, malls, airports, casinos, universities, and colleges. At the current time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our business model has been disrupted because of the closure of heavily trafficked and major retail locations. Management is evaluating all business opportunities.

 

Prior to December 31, 2018, the Company had an active license and sponsorship agreement in place with the National Hockey League. The Company never produced product under the license. During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company and NHL agreed to terminate the NHL Agreement. In return, the Company agreed to pay the NHL an amount equal to one percent (1%) of the Company’s net sales of certain products as defined under the agreement.

 

In June 2016, the Company entered into a license agreement beginning January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2018 with Major League Baseball Properties, Inc. (“MLB”, “Licensor”) for the non-exclusive right to certain proprietary intangible property of the Licensor to be used in connection with the manufacturing, distribution, promotion and advertisement of an ice cream novelty product to be sold within the U.S., the District of Columbia and U.S. territories.

 

In 2017, the Company modified its agreement with Major League Baseball Properties to extend through calendar year 2019. Additionally, the Company has a revenue sharing agreement with MLB on screen advertising at Point-of- sale. The Company received an initial purchase order for pallets of MLB ice cream in May 2018 and shipped this product in June. The Company planned to sell pallets of MLB ice cream to large national wholesale distributors as well as through reach-in MLB branded freezers which include a digital advertising screen.

 

On March 18, 2019, the Company approved of an asset sale of the assets related to the legacy MiniMelts brand for $350,000 in cash, which was approved by a majority of stockholders. Part of the proceeds from the sale was used to retire certain lease obligations as well as for general operating purposes. The Company will continue to explore opportunities in the frozen business, seeking to leverage its vending assets to pursue new revenue streams and test concepts for new offerings at retail, including health and wellness. The Board of Directors had agreed to begin to explore the development of certain products in the cannabis industry with a focus on non-THC Cannabinoids in frozen desserts as well as other complimentary CBD product offerings though vending as well as online sales and direct to retail, under a new brand. Due to the global pandemic and the closure and reduction of heavily trafficked business, management is reevaluating all business partnerships and opportunities.

Results of Operations

 

For the Year Ended December 31, 2019 Compared to Year Ended December 31, 2018

 

Revenue

 

For the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company’s revenue decreased by $1,203,518 or 94% to $80,233 compared to revenues of $1,283,751 during the year ended December 31, 2018. The decrease in revenue was due to asset sale (see note 1).  As of December 31, 2018, the Company had an installed base of 118 electronic kiosks in Southern California and Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

Cost of Goods Sold (exclusive of depreciation shown separately below)

 

For the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company’s cost of goods sold decreased by $687,375 or 89% to $88,965 compared to cost of goods sold of $776,340 during the year ended December 31, 2018. The Company’s gross margin during the year ended December 31, 2019 was (11)%, compared to 40% in 2018. The decrease in 2019 was because all inventory was liquidated during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 prior to the sale of the MiniMelts assets (see Note 1).

 

Selling Expenses

 

Selling expenses for year ended December 31, 2019 decreased by $1,324,259 or 90% to $143,323 compared to $1,467,582 during the year ended December 31, 2018. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company expensed $115,000 compared to $1,040,863 in 2018 for sponsorship and media commitment fees in connection with the NHL Corporate Marketing Agreement and Major League Baseball Properties, Inc.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2019 were $821,122, a decrease of $704,120 or 46%, compared to $1,525,242 for the year ended December 31, 2018. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to decrease in professional fees.

 

Gain on settlement of liability

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company recorded a gain on settlement of liabilities of $156,709. During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company and NHL agreed to terminate the NHL Agreement (see note 11). As a result, the Company recorded a gain on settlement of liability of $2,674,419. There was no gain on settlement of liability during the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Loss on asset impairment

 

During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company recorded asset impairment charges of $192,705.

 

Gain on Fair Value of Debt and Warrant Liabilities

 

Certain warrants issued by the Company have a “down round provision”. As such, the warrants have been recorded as liabilities and are subject to remeasurement at each balance sheet date. The warrants are valued using the Black Scholes method and will continue to be adjusted each reporting period for changes in fair value until the warrant is exercised or expires. Gains or losses on revaluation are recorded as a component of other expense on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company recognized a gain on the change in fair value of debt and warrant liabilities in the amount $34,986, as compared to $62,097 during the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Amortization of Debt Discount and Deferred Financing Costs

 

Amortization of debt discount and deferred financing costs for the year ended December 31, 2019 were $171,513, compared to $86,295for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

14

 

 

Interest Expense

 

Interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2019 was $622,797, as compared to $661,332 during the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Gain on sale of asset

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company sold certain equipment and recorded $27,465 in loss on sale of assets. During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company recorded $23,984 in gain on sale of assets.

 

Net Loss

 

As a result of the foregoing, the net loss for the year ended December 31, 2019 was $1,896,150 as compared to $683,780 incurred during the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis. The Company had net loss of $1,896,150 during the year ended December 31, 2019, has accumulated losses totaling $14,198,142, and has a working capital deficit of $6,876,803 at December 31, 2019. These factors, among others, indicate that the Company may be unable to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

 

The Company will need to raise additional financing in order to fund the its operations for the next 12 months, and to allow the Company to continue the development of its business plans and satisfy its obligations on a timely basis. Should additional financing not be available, the Company will have to negotiate with its lenders to extend the repayment dates of its indebtedness. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully restructure its debt obligations in the event it fails to obtain additional financing.

 

Operating Activities

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company used $751,367 of cash in operating activities primarily as a result of the Company’s net loss of $1,896,150, offset by gain on change in fair value of debt and warrant liabilities of $34,986, loss on sale of asset of $27,465, loss on asset impairment of $192,705, share-based compensation of $285,379, $100,188 in depreciation expense, $171,513 in amortization and accretion of debt discount, loss on default of convertible notes of $42,625, gain of settlement of debt $156,709 and net changes in operating assets and liabilities of $516,333.

 

Investing Activities

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, investing activities provided $350,000 in cash in proceeds from sale of property and equipment. The Company does not anticipate any investing purchasing activities in the near future.

 

Financing Activities

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, financing activities provided $338,559. Financing activities provided $270,000 in proceeds from promissory notes and $619,303 in proceeds from convertible notes. The Company used $296,508 in repayments of promissory notes, $64,300 in repayment of convertible notes, and $189,936 in repayments of capital lease obligations.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have, or are reasonably likely to have, an effect on its financial condition, financial statements, revenues or expenses.

 

Inflation

 

Although the Company’s operations are influenced by general economic conditions, it does not believe that inflation had a material effect on its results of operations during the last two years as it is generally able to pass the increase in material and labor costs to its customers or absorb them as it improves the efficiency of its operations.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make judgments, assumptions and estimates that affect the amounts reported in our consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. The consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2019 describe the significant accounting policies and methods used in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates and be based on events different from those assumptions. Future events and their effects cannot be predicted with certainty; estimating therefore, requires the exercise of judgment. Thus, accounting estimates change as new events occur, as more experience is acquired or as additional information is obtained. The following critical accounting policies are impacted significantly by judgments, assumptions and estimates used in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements:

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

For certain of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash and equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and short-term debt, the carrying amounts approximate their fair values due to their short maturities. ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” requires disclosure of the fair value of financial instruments held by the Company. ASC Topic 825, “Financial Instruments,” defines fair value, and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement that enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures. The three levels of valuation hierarchy are defined as follows:

 

  Level 1: Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities. The Company considers active markets as those in which transactions for the assets or liabilities occur in sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis

 

  Level 2: Quoted prices in markets that are not active, or inputs which are observable, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability. This category includes those derivative instruments that the Company values using observable market data. Substantially all of these inputs are observable in the marketplace throughout the term of the derivative instruments, can be derived from observable data, or supported by observable levels at which transactions are executed in the marketplace.

 

  Level 3: Measured based on prices or valuation models that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and less observable from objective sources (i.e. supported by little or no market activity). Level 3 instruments include derivative warrant instruments. The Company does not have sufficient corroborating evidence to support classifying these assets and liabilities as Level 1 or Level 2.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. Certain warrants issued by the Company contain terms that result in the warrants being classified as derivative liabilities for accounting purposes. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair market value and then is revalued at each reporting date, with changes in fair value reported in the consolidated statement of operations. The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market or foreign currency risks.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases”, which requires that lease arrangements longer than 12 months result in an entity recognizing an asset and liability. ASU 2016-02 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and early adoption is permitted. The Company has adopted ASU 2016-02 and determined that its adoption had no impact on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

To the Stockholders and the Board of Directors of

BoxScore Brands, Inc. (Formerly U-Vend, Inc. and Subsidiaries)

 

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of BoxScore Brands, Inc. (the Company) (Formerly U-Vend Inc, Inc. and Subsidiaries) as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in stockholders' deficit and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes to the consolidated financial statements (collectively, 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 the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

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

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 3 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company’s has suffered recurring losses from operations since inception and, as of December 31, 2019, has negative working capital and a stockholders’ deficit. This raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters also are 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 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.

 

/s/ Freed Maxick CPAs, P.C.

 

We have served as the Company's auditor since 2009.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
For the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018

 

Note 1 – Nature of the Business

 

BoxScore Brands, Inc. (formerly U-Vend Inc.) (the “Company”) most recently has developed, marketed and distributed various self-serve electronic kiosks and mall/airport co-branded islands throughout North America. The Company seeks to place its kiosks in high-traffic host locations such as big box stores, restaurants, malls, airports, casinos, universities, and colleges. Currently, the Company is exploring opportunities to best utilize their equipment.

 

On February 26, 2018, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation. The Certificate of Amendment changed the Company’s name to BoxScore Brands, Inc. from U-Vend Inc. to better reflect the nature of the Company’s then current business operations, which has expanded to include relationships with major sports organizations dispensing ice cream products through vending machines.

 

Asset Sale

 

On March 18, 2019, the Company approved an asset sale of the assets related to the legacy MiniMelts brand for $350,000 in cash, which was approved by a majority of its stockholders. These MiniMelts assets generated 100% of the revenue reported during the year ended December 31, 2019. During the year ended December 31, 2018, MiniMelts sales accounted for approximately $1,100,000, or 85%, of the revenue reported during that period. Part of the proceeds from the sale was used to retire certain lease obligations as well as for general operating purposes.

 

The Company is evaluating opportunities and expects to leverage its vending assets to pursue new revenue streams and test concepts for new offerings at retail. Also, the Board of Directors had agreed to begin to explore the development of certain products in the cannabis industry with a focus on non-THC Cannabinoids in frozen desserts as well as other complementary CBD product offerings though vending as well as online sales and direct to retail, under a new brand. Current market conditions and a global pandemic has negatively affected management’s original go-to-market strategy and has forced the company to reevaluate all market opportunities.

 

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The Company’s fiscal year ends on December 31, and its fiscal quarters end on March 31, June 30 and September 30.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of BoxScore Brands, Inc. and the operations of U-Vend America, Inc., U-Vend Canada, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, U-Vend USA LLC. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates and be based on events different from those assumptions. Future events and their effects cannot be predicted with certainty; estimating, therefore, requires the exercise of judgment. Thus, accounting estimates change as new events occur, as more experience is acquired, or as additional information is obtained.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory is stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value and cost is determined by the average cost method. Inventory is made up of finished goods ice cream. The Company records an inventory reserves for spoilage and product losses. The reserve for spoilage and product losses was $5,500 as of December 31, 2018. All inventory was liquidated during the year ended December 31, 2019 prior to the sale of the MiniMelts assets (see Note1).

 

F- 7

 

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost less depreciation. Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the assets. Electronic kiosks, related equipment and delivery vans have estimated useful lives between three and seven years. Expenditures for repairs and maintenance are charged to expense as incurred.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost less depreciation. Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the assets. Equipment has estimated useful live between three and seven years. Expenditures for repairs and maintenance are charged to expense as incurred.

 

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets, such as property and equipment and intangible assets subject to amortization are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset group may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by comparing the carrying amount to the estimated future undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the asset group. If it is determined that an asset group is not recoverable, an impairment charge is recognized for the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset group exceeds its fair value. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company recorded an asset impairment charge of $192,705 related to property and equipment (see Note 4).

 

Common Shares Issued and Earnings Per Share

 

Common shares issued are recorded based on the value of the shares issued or consideration received, including cash, services rendered or other non-monetary assets, whichever is more readily determinable. The Company presents basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share reflect the actual weighted average of shares issued and outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share are computed including the number of additional shares that would have been outstanding if dilutive potential shares had been issued. In a loss period, the calculation for basic and diluted earnings per share is considered to be the same, as the impact of potential common shares is anti-dilutive.

 

As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, there were approximately 159.9 million and 153.7 million shares potentially issuable under convertible debt agreements, options, and warrants that could dilute basic earnings per share in the future that were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share because their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive to the Company’s losses during the periods presented.

 

Preferred Stock Authorized

 

The Company has authorization for “blank check” preferred stock, which could be issued with voting, liquidation, dividend and other rights superior to common stock. As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, there are 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock authorized, and no shares issued or outstanding.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. Certain warrants issued by the Company contain terms that result in the warrants being classified as derivative liabilities for accounting purposes. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair market value and then is revalued at each reporting date, with changes in fair value reported in the consolidated statement of operations. The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market or foreign currency risks.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

For certain of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash and equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and short-term debt, the carrying amounts approximate their fair values due to their short maturities. ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” requires disclosure of the fair value of financial instruments held by the Company. ASC Topic 825, “Financial Instruments,” defines fair value, and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement that enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures. The three levels of valuation hierarchy are defined as follows:

 

  Level 1: Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities. The Company considers active markets as those in which transactions for the assets or liabilities occur in sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis

 

F- 8

 

 

  Level 2: Quoted prices in markets that are not active, or inputs which are observable, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability. This category includes those derivative instruments that the Company values using observable market data. Substantially all of these inputs are observable in the marketplace throughout the term of the derivative instruments, can be derived from observable data, or supported by observable levels at which transactions are executed in the marketplace.

 

  Level 3: Measured based on prices or valuation models that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and less observable from objective sources (i.e. supported by little or no market activity). Level 3 instruments include derivative warrant instruments. The Company does not have sufficient corroborating evidence to support classifying these assets and liabilities as Level 1 or Level 2.

 

Certain of the Company’s debt and equity instruments include embedded derivatives that require bifurcation from the host contract under the provisions of ASC 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging. Certain warrant were issued between June 2013 and December 2014 were derivative liabilities outside the exception of applying ASU 2017-11, Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Down Round Features. When determining whether certain financial instruments should be classified as liabilities or equity instruments, a down round feature no longer precludes equity classification when assessing whether the instrument is indexed to an entity’s own stock. On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASU 2017-11 on its consolidated financial statements and reclassified $118,675 as equity form derivative liabilities. The estimated fair value of the derivative warrant instruments was calculated using a Black Scholes valuation model.

 

The following table sets forth by level within the fair value hierarchy our financial assets and liabilities that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis as December 31, 2019 and 2018:

 

    Carrying     Fair Value Measurement at  
    Value     December 31, 2019  
          Level 1     Level 2     Level 3  
                         
Derivative liabilities, debt and equity instruments     13,553                   13,553  

 

    Carrying     Fair Value Measurement at  
    Value     December 31, 2018  
          Level 1     Level 2     Level 3  
                         
Derivative liabilities, debt and equity instruments     157,712                   157,712  

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation in accordance with accounting guidance that requires all stock-based awards granted to employees and directors to be measured at fair value and recognized as expense. Stock-based compensation expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period of the award, which is generally equivalent to the vesting period. The fair value of each stock option granted is estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The measurement date for the non-forfeitable awards to nonemployees that vest immediately is the date the award is issued.

 

Gain on Liabilities Settlement

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019 creditors forgave aggregate amount of $156,709, of which approximately $64,000 were associated accrued expenses, $45,000 related to conversion of approximately $105,000 of accounts payable to a $60,000 convertible note, and $47,000 was connected to forgiveness of accounts payable.

Income Taxes

 

At December 31, 2019, the Company has available net operating loss carryforwards for federal and state income tax purposes of approximately $11.1 million and $12.1 million, respectively. Approximately $8.6 million of the federal net operating loss carryforward expires through 2037 and $2.5 million will carryforward indefinitely, if not utilized earlier. The state net operating loss carryforwards expire through 2039, if not utilized earlier. Due to the uncertainty as to the Company’s ability to generate sufficient taxable income in the future and utilize the net operating loss carryforwards before they expire, the Company has recorded a valuation allowance to fully offset the net operating loss carryforwards, as well as the total net deferred tax assets.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain prior period amounts in the accompanying consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to current period presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the results of operations or cash flows for the periods presented.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases”, which requires that lease arrangements longer than 12 months result in an entity recognizing an asset and liability. ASU 2016-02 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and early adoption is permitted. The Company has adopted ASU 2016-02 and determined that its adoption had no impact on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

In July 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-11, “Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480) and Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): I. Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Down Round Features; II. Replacement of the Indefinite Deferral for Mandatorily Redeemable Financial Instruments of Certain Nonpublic Entities and Certain Mandatorily Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests with a Scope Exception, (ASU 2017-11).” Part I of this update addresses the complexity of accounting for certain financial instruments with down round features. Down round features are features of certain equity-linked instruments (or embedded features) that result in the strike price being reduced on the basis of the pricing of future equity offerings. Current accounting guidance creates cost and complexity for entities that issue financial instruments (such as warrants and convertible instruments) with down round features that require fair value measurement of the entire instrument or conversion option. Part II of this update addresses the difficulty of navigating Topic 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity, because of the existence of extensive pending content in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. This pending content is the result of the indefinite deferral of accounting requirements about mandatorily redeemable financial instruments of certain nonpublic entities and certain mandatorily redeemable non-controlling interests. The amendments in Part II of this update do not have an accounting effect. This ASU is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company adopted ASU 2017-11 on its consolidated financial statements. Upon adoption the Company derecognized 39,512,502 number of warrants based on review of contracts that determined the derivative treatment was specific to a feature in the instrument that reduced the strike price if the Company issued additional shares for an amount less than the strike price. As a result of this analysis the Company recorded a cumulative effect adjustment of $118,675 on January 1, 2019.

 

Note 3 – Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis. The Company reported net loss of $1,896,150 for the year ended December 31, 2019 and has incurred accumulated losses totaling $14,198,142 through December 31, 2019. In addition, the Company has incurred negative cash flows from operating activities since its inception. The Company has relied on the proceeds from loans and private sales of its stock, in addition to its revenues, to finance its operations. These factors, among others, indicate that the Company may be unable to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

 

With the onset of the Covid 19 pandemic, the reduction of foot traffic and closure of retail locations, management has been proactively looking at new business models and opportunities to stabilize revenues and continue to grow the company. Until the Company can generate significant cash from operations, its ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon obtaining additional financing. The Company hopes to raise additional financing, potentially through the sale of debt or equity instruments, or a combination, to fund its operations for the next 12 months and allow the Company to continue the development of its business plans and satisfy its obligations on a timely basis. Should additional financing not be available, the Company will have to negotiate with its lenders to extend the repayment dates of its indebtedness. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully restructure its debt obligations in the event it fails to obtain additional financing. These conditions have raised substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for one year from the issuance of the financial statements, which has not been alleviated.

The amount of the Company’s net operating losses and other tax attributes incurred prior to any ownership change may be limited based on the Company’s value. A full valuation allowance has been established for the Company’s deferred tax assets, including net operating losses and any other corporate tax attributes.

 

During the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company had no unrecognized uncertain tax positions. The Company’s policy is to recognize interest accrued and penalties related to unrecognized uncertain tax positions in tax expense.

ITEM 9A - CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the chief executive officer and our chief financial officer and effected by our 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.

 

The Company maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in its Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the Company’s chief executive officer also acting as chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Our evaluation of internal control over financial reporting includes using the 2013 COSO framework, an integrated framework for the evaluation of internal controls issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission, to identify the risks and control objectives related to the evaluation of our control environment.

 

Our chief executive officer, after evaluating the effectiveness of the Company’s “disclosure controls and procedures” (as defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e)) as of the end of the period covered by this annual report, has concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective and that material weaknesses exist in our internal control over financial reporting based on the evaluation of these controls and procedures as required by paragraph (b) of Exchange Act Rules 13a-15 or 15d-15.

 

A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Management has identified the following material weakness as of December 31, 2019: insufficient personnel resources within the accounting function to segregate the duties over financial transaction processing and reporting. Because of this material weakness, management concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of December 31, 2019.

 

To remediate our internal control weakness, management intends to implement the following measures:

 

  Add sufficient accounting personnel or outside consultants to properly segregate duties and to effect a timely, accurate preparation of the financial statements.
     
  Upon the hiring of additional accounting personnel or outside consultants, develop and maintain adequate written accounting policies and procedures.

 

To address the material weaknesses, we performed additional analyses and other post-closing procedures and retained the services of a consultant to ensure that our consolidated financial statements were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP). Notwithstanding these material weaknesses, management believes that the financial statements included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K fairly present, in all material respects, our financial condition, result of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.

This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation requirements by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the Company to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There was no change in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f)) during the year ended December 31, 2019 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

 

Inherent Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls

 

The design of any system of control is based upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events. There can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated objectives under all future events, no matter how remote, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may not deteriorate. Because of its inherent limitations, disclosure controls and procedures may not prevent or detect all misstatements. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and that management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs. 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 policies and procedures may deteriorate.

ITEM 10 - DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 

Directors and Executive Officers

 

Name   Age   Position   Director/Officer Since
Andrew Boutsikakis   44   Chief Executive Officer, President and Director   February 2020
John Edward (Jay) Hentschel   48   Director   June 2017
Patrick White   65   Director   October 2009
Jared Levinthal   46   Director   December 2018

 

The principal occupations for at least the past five years of each of our directors and executive officers are as follows:

 

Andrew Boutsikakis was appointed to be Chief Executive Officer, President and member of the Board of Directors of the company on February 2, 2020. Mr. Boutsikakis has over 15 years of sales experience in financial services, communications, and business development. In 2014, Mr. Boutsikakis formed AB Consulting Group (“AB Consulting”) to focus his efforts in the emerging medical marijuana industry in Nevada and Arizona. AB Consulting provided corporate consulting services primarily in sales, licensing, and mergers & acquisition to the legal cannabis industry. Previously, Andrew was the sales director at Markets Media and director of business development at Cohere Communication.

 

John Edward (Jay) Hentschel was the Executive Vice President of Dean and Deluca, Inc. where he has worked from October 2016 to January 2018. From May 1991 until September 2016, Mr. Hentschel was a Partner with Accenture, a NYSE-listed global professional services company where he served as managing director of the Retail Industry practice advising large retailers. Currently Mr. Hentschel is not employed. Mr. Hentschel also volunteers on the Retail Advisory Committee for the New York City Investment Fund, has authored numerous articles, and holds an MBA with distinction from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business.

 

Patrick White has been CEO and President of VerifyMe, Inc. since August 2017. Mr.White was Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors of Document Security Systems, Inc. (“DSS”) from August 2002 to December 2012, serving as its Chairman of the Board of Directors from August 2002 until January 2008. Mr. White then served as a Business Consultant to DSS from 2012 to 2015. DSS is an NYSE American listed company. Mr. White received his Bachelor’s of Science (Accounting) and Masters of Business Administration degrees from Rochester Institute of Technology. We believe Mr. White is qualified to serve on our board of directors based on his extensive corporate management experience, including serving as the chief executive officer of a publicly-held company, and his experience with the organizational challenges involved with becoming and operating as a publicly-held company.

 

Jared Levinthal has served as a Director of the Company since December 2018. Mr. Levinthal is a Partner with Levinthal Wilkins, PLLC in Houston, TX. Mr. Levinthal is a graduate, with Honors, of the University of Texas School of Law. Mr. Levinthal is a graduate of Tulane University with a BA, and is a member of the Texas Bar.

 

Term of Office

 

Directors are elected to hold office until the next annual meeting of stockholders and until their successors are elected and qualified. Annual meetings of the stockholders, for the selection of directors to succeed those whose terms expire, are held at such time each year as designated by the Board of Directors. Officers of the Company are elected by the Board of Directors, which is required to consider that subject at its first meeting after every annual meeting of shareholders. Each officer holds office until his successor is elected and qualified or until his earlier resignation or removal.

 

Committees of the Board of Directors

 

We do not have any committees of the Board of Directors. We consider a majority of our Board members (consisting of Messrs. Hentschel, Levinthal and White) to be independent directors under NYSE American rules.

 

Corporate Governance

 

We do not have an audit committee, compensation committee or nominating committee. As we grow and evolve as a SEC registrant, our corporate governance structure is expected to be enhanced.

Directors Compensation

 

The Company’s non-employee directors do not currently receive cash compensation for their services as directors although they are provided reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses incurred in attending Board meetings. In order to attract and retain qualified persons to our Board, in July 2011, the Company granted its non-employee directors stock options through its Equity Incentive Plan. During 2011, each non-employee director received 2,500 stock options at an exercise price of $60.00, vesting equally over a three year period, and with an expiration date of ten years from date of grant. In 2015, the Company granted each of its non-employee directors 500,000 stock options at an exercise price of $0.20, one third of the options vesting immediately and the balance over a two year period, and with an expiration date of five years from the date of grant.

 

Equity Incentive Plan

 

On July 22, 2011, the Board of Directors of the Company approved the Company’s 2011 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) and on July 26, 2011, stockholders holding a majority of shares of the Company approved, by written consent, the Plan. The Plan provides for the grant of options intended to qualify as “incentive stock options” and “non-statutory stock options” within the meaning of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, together with the grant of bonus stock and stock appreciation rights, at the discretion of our Board of Directors. Incentive stock options are issuable only to our eligible officers, directors and key employees. Non-statutory stock options are issuable only to our non-employee directors and consultants. Upon stockholder approval of the Plan, a total of 5,000,000 shares of common stock or appreciation rights may be issued under the Plan. The Plan will be administered by our full Board of Directors. Under the Plan, the Board will determine which individuals shall receive options, grants or stock appreciation rights, the time period during which the rights may be exercised, the number of shares of common stock that may be purchased under the rights and the option price. As of December 31, 2019, the Company had 3,155,100 options outstanding under the Plan to employees, directors and outside consultants.

 

On November 22, 2017, stockholders of the Company holding a majority of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock approved, by written consent, an increase in the number of shares reserved under the Plan by 10,000,000 shares. After this increase of 10,000,000 shares, the total number of shares of common stock reserved under the Plan totals 15,000,000 shares. On November 16, 2017, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the increase of the 10,000,000 shares reserved under the Plan.

 

Limitation on Liability and Indemnification of Officers and Directors

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that liability of directors to us for monetary damages is eliminated to the full extent provided by Delaware law. Under Delaware law, a director is not personally liable to us or our stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director except for liability (i) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to us or our stockholders; (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or that involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law; (iii) for authorizing the unlawful payment of a dividend or other distribution on our capital stock or the unlawful purchases of our capital stock; (iv) a violation of Delaware law with respect to conflicts of interest by directors; or (v) for any transaction from which the director derived any improper personal benefit.

 

The effect of this provision in our Certificate of Incorporation is to eliminate our rights and our stockholders’ rights (through stockholders’ derivative suits) to recover monetary damages from a director for breach of the fiduciary duty of care as a director (including any breach resulting from negligent or grossly negligent behavior) except in the situations described in clauses (i) through (v) above. This provision does not limit or eliminate our rights or the rights of our security holders to seek non-monetary relief, such as an injunction or rescission, in the event of a breach of a director’s duty of care or any liability for violation of the federal securities laws.

 

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

 

As of May 10, 2021, there were 37,717,755 shares of common stock outstanding. The following table sets forth certain information regarding the beneficial ownership of the outstanding common shares as of May 10, 2021 by (i) each person who owns beneficially more than 5% of our outstanding common stock; (ii) each of our executive officers and directors; and (iii) all of our executive officers and directors as a group. The shares listed include as to each person any shares that such person has the right to acquire within 60 days from the date hereof. Except as otherwise indicated, each such person has sole investment and voting power with respect to such shares, subject to community property laws where applicable. The address of our executive officers and directors is in care of us at 3675 W. Teco Avenue Suite 8, Las Vegas, Nevada 89118.

ITEM 13 - CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE

 

Director Independence

 

As our common stock is currently quoted on the OTC Pink, we are not subject to the rules of any national securities exchange which require that a majority of a listed company’s directors and specified committees of the board of directors meet independence standards prescribed by such rules. However, we consider a majority of our Board members (consisting of Messrs. Hentschel, White and Levinthal) to be independent directors under NYSE American stock exchange rules.
