Cautionary Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements

 

This quarterly report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “may,” “should,” “could,” “will,” “plan,” “future,” “continue, “and other expressions that are predictions of or indicate future events and trends and that do not relate to historical matters identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based largely on our expectations or forecasts of future events, can be affected by inaccurate assumptions, and are subject to various business risks and known and unknown uncertainties, a number of which are beyond our control. Therefore, actual results could differ materially from the forward-looking statements contained in this document, and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. A wide variety of factors could cause or contribute to such differences and could adversely impact revenues, profitability, cash flows and capital needs. There can be no assurance that the forward-looking statements contained in this document will, in fact, transpire or prove to be accurate. These statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, including the risks in the section entitled “Risk Factors” that may cause our or our industry’s actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by any forward-looking statements.

 

Important factors that may cause the actual results to differ from the forward-looking statements, projections or other expectations include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

  risk that we will not be able to remediate identified material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures;
     
  risk that we fail to meet the requirements of the agreements under which we acquired our business interests, including any cash payments to the business operations, which could result in the loss of our right to continue to operate or develop the specific businesses described in the agreements;
     
  risk that we will be unable to secure additional financing in the near future in order to commence and sustain our planned development and growth plans;
     
  risk that we cannot attract, retain and motivate qualified personnel, particularly employees, consultants and contractors for our operations;
     
  risks and uncertainties relating to the various industries and operations we are currently engaged in;
     
  results of initial feasibility, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies, and the possibility that future growth, development or expansion will not be consistent with our expectations;
     
  risks related to the inherent uncertainty of business operations including profit, cost of goods, production costs and cost estimates and the potential for unexpected costs and expenses;
     
  risks related to commodity price fluctuations;
     
  the uncertainty of profitability based upon our history of losses;
     
  risks related to failure to obtain adequate financing on a timely basis and on acceptable terms for our planned development projects;
     
  risks related to environmental regulation and liability;
     
  risks related to tax assessments;
     
  other risks and uncertainties related to our prospects, properties and business strategy.

 

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this report. Except as required by law, we do not undertake to update or revise any of the forward-looking statements to conform these statements to actual results, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

 

As used in this quarterly report, “Greater Cannabis,” the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our” refer to The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc., unless otherwise indicated.

NOTE A – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Nature of Operations

 

The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc. (the “Company”) was formed in March 2014 as a limited liability company under the name, The Greater Cannabis Company, LLC. The Company was a wholly owned subsidiary of Sylios Corp (“Sylios”) until March 10, 2017.

 

On July 31, 2018, the Company acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Class A common stock of Green C Corporation (“Green C”) in exchange for 9,411,998 newly issued shares of the Company’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Exchange”). Each share of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock is convertible into 50 shares of common stock and is entitled to vote 50 votes per share on all matters as a class with holders of common stock. Since after the Exchange was consummated, the former shareholders of Green C and their designees owned approximately 94% of the issued and outstanding voting shares of the Company, Green C is the acquirer for accounting purposes. Prior to the Exchange, the Company had no assets and nominal business operations. Accordingly, the Exchange has been treated for accounting purposes as a recapitalization by the accounting acquirer, Green C, and the accompanying consolidated financial statements of the Company reflect the assets, liabilities and operations of Green C from its inception on December 21, 2017 to July 31, 2018 and combined with the Company thereafter. See Note C (Acquisition of Green C Corporation).

 

Green C was incorporated on December 21, 2017 under the laws of the Province of Ontario Canada with the principle place of business in North York, Ontario.

 

Green C is the owner of an exclusive, worldwide license for an eluting transmucosal patch platform (“ETP”) for non-invasive drug delivery in the cannabis field as further described in the exclusive license agreement dated June 21, 2018 with Pharmedica Ltd. (see Note J).

 

The Company’s business plan is to (i) commercialize its ETP technology and (ii) concentrate on cannabis related investment and development opportunities through direct equity investments, joint ventures, licensing agreements or acquisitions.

 

The Company is actively seeking licensing opportunities in the cannabis sector for intellectual property and products. At present, the Company’s sole active, exclusive, worldwide licensing agreement is with Pharmedica Limited for its ETP technology.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiary Green C Corporation.

NOTE A – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Investments having an original maturity of 90 days or less that are readily convertible into cash are considered to be cash equivalents. For the periods presented, the Company had no in cash equivalents.

 

Income Taxes

 

In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 740 - Income Taxes, the provision for income taxes is computed using the asset and liability method. The asset and liability method measures deferred income taxes by applying enacted statutory rates in effect at the balance sheet date to the differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their reported amounts on the financial statements. The resulting deferred tax assets or liabilities are adjusted to reflect changes in tax laws as they occur. A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that a deferred tax asset will not be realized.

 

We expect to recognize the financial statement benefit of an uncertain tax position only after considering the probability that a tax authority would sustain the position in an examination. For tax positions meeting a “more-likely-than-not” threshold, the amount to be recognized in the financial statements will be the benefit expected to be realized upon settlement with the tax authority. For tax positions not meeting the threshold, no financial statement benefit is recognized. As of September 30, 2019, we had no uncertain tax positions. We recognize interest and penalties, if any, related to uncertain tax positions as general and administrative expenses. We currently have no foreign federal or state tax examinations nor have we had any foreign federal or state examinations since our inception. To date, we have not incurred any interest or tax penalties.

 

Use of Estimates

 

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

 

Financial Instruments and Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

We follow ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, for assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis. ASC Topic 820 establishes a common definition for fair value to be applied to existing US GAAP that requires the use of fair value measurements that establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure about such fair value measurements.

 

ASC 820 defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Additionally, ASC Topic 820 requires the use of valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. These inputs are prioritized below:

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For The Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019 and 2018

NOTE A – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2: Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data
Level 3: Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data, which require the use of the reporting entity’s own assumptions.

 

The carrying value of financial assets and liabilities recorded at fair value is measured on a recurring or nonrecurring basis. Financial assets and liabilities measured on a recurring basis are those that are adjusted to fair value each time a financial statement is prepared. Financial assets and liabilities measured on a non-recurring basis are those that are adjusted to fair value when a significant event occurs. Except for derivative liabilities, we had no financial assets or liabilities carried and measured on a recurring or nonrecurring basis during the reporting periods.

 

Derivative Liabilities

 

We evaluate convertible notes payable, stock options, stock warrants or other contracts to determine if those contracts or embedded components of those contracts qualify as derivatives to be separately accounted for under the relevant sections of ASC Topic 815-40, Derivative Instruments and Hedging: Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity.

 

The result of this accounting treatment could be that the fair value of a financial instrument is classified as a derivative instrument and is marked-to-market at each balance sheet date and recorded as a liability. In the event that the fair value is recorded as a liability, the change in fair value is recorded in the statement of operations as other income or other expense. Upon conversion or exercise of a derivative instrument, the instrument is marked to fair value at the conversion date and then that fair value is reclassified to equity. Financial instruments that are initially classified as equity that become subject to reclassification under ASC Topic 815-40 are reclassified to a liability account at the fair value of the instrument on the reclassification date.

 

Long-lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets such as property and equipment and intangible assets are periodically reviewed for impairment. We test for impairment losses on long-lived assets used in operations whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of an asset to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to the future undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If such asset is considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its fair value. Impairment evaluations involve management’s estimates on asset useful lives and future cash flows. Actual useful lives and cash flows could be different from those estimated by management which could have a material effect on our reporting results and financial positions. Fair value is determined through various valuation techniques including discounted cash flow models, quoted market values and third-party independent appraisals, as considered necessary.

 

Pharmedica Exclusive License Agreement cost

 

The Pharmedica Exclusive License Agreement is carried at cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization is calculated using the straight line method over the license’s estimated economic life of five years.

NOTE A – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Equity Instruments Issued to Non-Employees for Acquiring Goods or Services

 

Issuances of our common stock or warrants for acquiring goods or services are measured at the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The measurement date for the fair value of the equity instruments issued to consultants or vendors is determined at the earlier of (i) the date at which a commitment for performance to earn the equity instruments is reached (a “performance commitment” which would include a penalty considered to be of a magnitude that is a sufficiently large disincentive for nonperformance) or (ii) the date at which performance is complete.

 

Although situations may arise in which counter performance may be required over a period of time, the equity award granted to the party performing the service may be fully vested and non-forfeitable on the date of the agreement. As a result, in this situation in which vesting periods do not exist if the instruments are fully vested on the date of agreement, we determine such date to be the measurement date and will record the estimated fair market value of the instruments granted as a prepaid expense and amortize such amount to expense over the contract period. When it is appropriate for us to recognize the cost of a transaction during financial reporting periods prior to the measurement date, for purposes of recognition of costs during those periods, the equity instrument is measured at the then-current fair values.

 

Related Parties

 

A party is considered to be related to us if the party directly or indirectly or through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with us. Related parties also include our principal owners, our management, members of the immediate families of our principal owners and our management and other parties with which we may deal if one party controls or can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the other to an extent that one of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests. A party which can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the transacting parties, or if it has an ownership interest in one of the transacting parties and can significantly influence the other to an extent that one or more of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests, is also a related party.

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue from product sales will be recognized when all of the following criteria are met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (2) the price is fixed or determinable, (3) collectability is reasonably assured, and (4) delivery has occurred.

 

Advertising Costs

 

Advertising costs are expensed as incurred. For the periods presented, we had no advertising costs.

 

Loss per Share

 

We compute net loss per share in accordance with FASB ASC 260. The ASC specifies the computation, presentation and disclosure requirements for loss per share for entities with publicly held common stock.

 

Basic loss per share amounts is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted net loss per common share is computed on the basis of the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive securities (such as stock options, warrants and convertible securities) outstanding. Dilutive securities having an anti-dilutive effect on diluted net loss per share are excluded from the calculation. For the periods presented, the Company excluded 470,599,900 shares relating to the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (see Note G), shares relating to convertible notes payable to third parties (Please see NOTE E - NOTES PAYABLE TO THIRD PARTIES for further information) and shares relating to outstanding warrants (Please see NOTE G - CAPITAL STOCK AND WARRANTS for further information) from the calculation of diluted shares outstanding as the effect of their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

 

Recently Enacted Accounting Standards

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which supersedes nearly all prior revenue recognition guidance under U.S. GAAP. The core principle of ASU 2014-09 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled for those goods or services. ASU 2014-09 defines a five-step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are required under prior U.S. GAAP. As amended by the FASB in July 2015, the standard became effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods therein. ASU 2014-09 has had no impact on our Financial statements for the periods presented.

Recently Enacted Accounting Standards

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations, to clarify the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations and address how an entity should assess whether it is the principal or the agent in contracts that include three or more parties. The effective date and transition requirements for these amendments are the same as the effective date and transition requirements of ASU 2014-09 (discussed above). ASU 2016-08 has had no impact on our Financial statements for the periods presentd.

 

In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing, to clarify the following two aspects of Topic 606: 1) identifying performance obligations, and 2) the licensing implementation guidance. The effective date and transition requirements for these amendments are the same as the effective date and transition requirements of ASU 2014-09 (discussed above). ASU 2016-10 has had no impact on our financial statements for the periods presented.

 

On July 13, 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2017-11. Among other things, ASU 2017-11 provides guidance that eliminates the requirement to consider “down round” features when determining whether certain financial instruments or embedded features are indexed to an entity’s stock and need to be classified as liabilities. ASU 2017-11 provides for entities to recognize the effect of a down round feature only when it is triggered and then as a dividend and a reduction to income available to common stockholders in basic earnings per share. The guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018.

 

Accordingly, effective January 1, 2019, the Company reduced the derivative liability of warrants with “down round” features (and do not contain variable conversion features) of $108,427 at December 31, 2018 to $ 0 and recognized a $108,427 cumulative affect adjustment reduction of accumulated deficit.

NOTE B - GOING CONCERN

 

Under ASC 205-40, we have the responsibility to evaluate whether conditions and/or events raise substantial doubt about our ability to meet our future obligations as they become due within one year after the date the financial statements are issued. As required by this standard, our evaluation shall initially not take into consideration the potential mitigating effects of our plans that have not been fully implemented as of the date the financial statements are issued.

 

In performing the first step of this assessment, we concluded that the following conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to meet our financial obligations as they become due. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had cash of $ 45,848, total current liabilities of $ 760,314 , and negative working capital of $ 714,466 . For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, we incurred a net loss of $ 552,558 and used $ 264,043 cash from operating activities. We expect to continue to incur negative cash flows until such time as our business generates sufficient cash inflows to finance our operations and debt service requirements.

 

In performing the second step of this assessment, we are required to evaluate whether our plans to mitigate the conditions above alleviate the substantial doubt about our ability to meet our obligations as they become due within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued. Our future plans include securing additional funding sources.

 

There is no assurance that sufficient funds required during the next year or thereafter will be generated from operations or that funds will be available through external sources. The lack of additional capital resulting from the inability to generate cash flow from operations or to raise capital from external sources would force the Company to substantially curtail or cease operations and would, therefore, have a material effect on the business. Furthermore, there can be no assurance that any such required funds, if available, will be available on attractive terms or that they will not have a significant dilutive effect on the Company’s existing shareholders. We have therefore concluded there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern through November 2020.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going-concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the outcome of the uncertainty related to our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

NOTE C - ACQUISITION OF GREEN C CORPORATION

 

As discussed in Note A above, the Company acquired 100% ownership of Green C Corporation on July 31, 2018. The acquisition has been accounted for in the accompanying consolidated financial statements as a “reverse acquisition” transaction. Accordingly, the financial position and results of operations of the Company prior to July 31, 2018 has been excluded from the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

(Unaudited)

 

The Convertible Promissory Notes (the “Notes”) and the warrants contain obligations to reduce the conversion price of the Notes and the exercise price of the Warrants in the event that the Company sells, grants or issues any non-excluded shares, options, warrants or any convertible instrument at a price below the conversion price of the Notes and the exercise price of the Warrants (“ratchet-down” provisions). The Notes also contain a variable conversion feature based on the future trading price of the Company’s common stock. Therefore, the number of shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes and exercise of the Warrants is indeterminate.

 

The fair value of the derivative liability was measured at the respective issuance dates and quarterly thereafter using the Black Scholes option pricing model. Assumptions used for the calculation of the derivative liability of the Notes at September 30, 2019 were (1) stock price of $0.1007 per share, (2) conversion prices ranging from $0.045 to $.0655 per share, (3) terms ranging from 135 days to 6 months, (4) expected volatility of 130.68%, and (5) risk free interest rates ranging from 1.83% to 1.85%. Assumptions used for the calculation of the derivative liability of the notes at December 31, 2018 were (1) stock price of $0.1655 per share, (2) conversion price of $0.0525 per share, (3) terms ranging from 3 months to 6 months, (4) expected volatility of 286.71%, and (5) risk free interest rates ranging from 2.47% to 2.50%.

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

 

Current Business

 

The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc. (the “Company”) was formed in March 2014 as a limited liability company under the name, The Greater Cannabis Company, LLC. The Company remained a wholly owned subsidiary of Sylios Corp (“Sylios”) until March 2017.

 

On July 31, 2018, the Company entered into and consummated a voluntary share exchange transaction with Green C Corporation, a company incorporated under the laws of the Province of Ontario (“Green C”) and the shareholders of Green C (the “Selling Shareholders”) pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement by and among the Company, Green C and the Selling Shareholders (the “Exchange Agreement”).

 

In accordance with the terms of the Exchange Agreement, the Company issued 9,411,998 shares of its preferred stock, par value $0.001 (the “Shares”) to the Selling Shareholders and certain individuals named below (collectively, the “Shareholder Group”) in exchange for 100% of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Green C (the “Exchange Transaction”). As a result of the Exchange Transaction, the Selling Shareholders acquired 94.12% of the Company’s authorized shares of preferred stock, Green C became the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary and the Company acquired 100% of the business and operations of Green C.

 

Green C is the owner of an exclusive, worldwide license for an eluting transmucosal patch platform (“ETP”) for non-invasive drug delivery in the cannabis field for medical treatment as further described in the exclusive license agreement dated September 21, 2018 with Pharmedica Ltd. A copy of the License Agreement is incorporated by reference to this report as Exhibit [] (the “License Agreement”).

 

The Company’s business plan is to (i) commercialize its ETP technology and (ii) concentrate on cannabis related investment and development opportunities through direct equity investments, joint ventures, licensing agreements or acquisitions.

 

The Company is actively seeking licensing opportunities in the cannabis sector for intellectual property and products. At present, the Company’s sole active, exclusive, worldwide licensing agreement is with Pharmedica Limited for its ETP technology.

 

Market Conditions

 

The cannabis industry continues to exceed other industries’ growth rates and retain the title of the “fastest-growing industry in the U.S.” as the Huffington Post reported in 2015.

 

According to Forbes Magazine (https://www.forbes.com/sites/thomaspellechia/2018/06/26/in-2017-beyond-u-s-enjoys-the-highest-legal-cannabis-market-share-worldwide/#14d7b2102d20), marijuana sales in North America reached $9.3 billion in 2017, reflecting 34% growth over 2015 ($5.04 billion), according to ArcView Market Research/BDS Analytics. The research firm projects sales to jump to $21.6 billion by 2021, representing a 26% compound annual growth rate (CAGR).

 

While the industry is growing rapidly, the cannabis industry faces four major obstacles that challenge its growth and profitability. First, the cultivation of cannabis is a very capital-intensive enterprise. Many cannabis entrepreneurs do not have access to the capital required to build the infrastructure required to meet growing demand and sales projections. Traditional sources of financing, such as banks, are not available currently to cannabis producers and retailers. Second, there is a significant shortage of knowledge related to virtually all areas of the cannabis business. When new states are added to the list of regulated cannabis markets, there will be a scarcity of experience and expertise to serve the needs of growers and retailers in these states. Third, the majority of states do not allow access to medical cannabis for its patients. This presents an obstacle to the medical cannabis industry and requires financial resources and dedicated advocacy to change regulations on the state level. Fourth, as explained below, marijuana is illegal under federal law.

 

  4  
 

 

Government Regulations

 

Cannabis is currently a Schedule I controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”) and is, therefore, illegal under federal law. Even in those states in which the use of cannabis has been legalized pursuant to state law, its use, possession or cultivation remains a violation of federal law. A Schedule I controlled substance is defined as one that has no currently accepted medical use in the United States, a lack of safety for use under medical supervision and a high potential for abuse. The U.S. Department of Justice (the “DOJ”) defines Schedule I controlled substances as “the most dangerous drugs of all the drug schedules with potentially severe psychological or physical dependence.” If the federal government decides to enforce the CSA in Colorado with respect to cannabis, persons that are charged with distributing, possessing with intent to distribute or growing cannabis could be subject to fines and/or terms of imprisonment, the maximum being life imprisonment and a $50 million fine.

 

Notwithstanding the CSA, as of the date of this filing, 33 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories of Guam and Puerto Rico allow their residents to use medical cannabis and 10 states have legalized recreational marijuana. Such state and territorial laws are in conflict with the federal CSA, which makes cannabis use and possession illegal at the federal level.

 

In light of such conflict between federal laws and state laws regarding cannabis, the previous administration under President Obama had effectively stated that it was not an efficient use of resources to direct federal law enforcement agencies to prosecute those lawfully abiding by state-designated laws allowing the use and distribution of medical cannabis. For example, the prior DOJ Deputy Attorney General of the Obama administration, James M. Cole, issued a memorandum (the “Cole Memo”) to all United States Attorneys providing updated guidance to federal prosecutors concerning cannabis enforcement under the CSA (see “-The Cole Memo”). In addition, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCEN”) provided guidelines (the “FinCEN Guidelines”) on February 14, 2014, regarding how financial institutions can provide services to cannabis-related businesses consistent with their Bank Secrecy Act (“BSA”) obligations (see “-FinCEN”).

 

Additional existing and pending legislation provides, or seeks to provide, protection to persons acting in violation of federal law but in compliance with state laws regarding cannabis. The Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment to the Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill, which funds the DOJ, prohibits the DOJ from using funds to prevent states with medical cannabis laws from implementing such laws. The Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment is effective through April 28, 2017, but as an amendment to an appropriations bill, it must be renewed annually. The Compassionate Access Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States Act (the “CARERS Act”) has been introduced in the U.S. Senate, which proposes to reclassify cannabis under the CSA to Schedule II, thereby changing the plant from a federally criminalized substance to one that has recognized medical uses. More recently, the Respect State Marijuana Laws Act of 2017 has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives, which proposes to exclude persons who produce, possess, distribute, dispense, administer or deliver marijuana in compliance with state laws from the regulatory controls and administrative, civil and criminal penalties of the CSA.

 

However, as of the date of this filing, neither the CARERS Act nor the Respect State Marijuana Laws Act of 2017 has been enacted, the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer (formerly known as the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment) has been renewed through September, 2018, and the new administration under President Trump has not yet indicated whether it will change the previously stated policy of low-priority enforcement of federal laws related to cannabis set forth in the Cole Memo or the FinCEN Guidelines. The Trump administration could change this policy and decide to strongly enforce the federal laws applicable to cannabis. Any such change in the federal government’s enforcement of current federal laws could cause significant financial damage to us. While we do not currently harvest, distribute or sell cannabis, we may be irreparably harmed by a change in enforcement policies of the federal government. However, as of the date of this filing, we have provided products and services to state-approved cannabis cultivators and dispensary facilities. As a result of our providing ancillary products and services to state-approved cannabis cultivators and dispensary facilities, we could be deemed to be aiding and abetting illegal activities, a violation of federal law.

Absent any future changes in cannabis-related policies under the Trump administration, we intend to remain within the guidelines outlined in the Cole Memo (see “-The Cole Memo”) and the FinCEN Guidelines (see “-FinCEN”), where applicable; however, we cannot provide assurance that we are in full compliance with the Cole Memo, the FinCEN Guidelines or any applicable federal laws or regulations.

 

Cole Memo

 

Because of the discrepancy between the laws in some states, which permit the distribution and sale of medical and recreational cannabis, from federal law that prohibits any such activities, DOJ Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole issued the Cole Memo concerning cannabis enforcement under the CSA. The Cole Memo guidance applies to all of the DOJ’s federal enforcement activity, including civil enforcement and criminal investigations and prosecutions, concerning cannabis in all states.

 

The Cole Memo reiterates Congress’s determination that cannabis is a dangerous drug and that the illegal distribution and sale of cannabis is a serious crime that provides a significant source of revenue to large-scale criminal enterprises, gangs, and cartels. The Cole Memo notes that the DOJ is committed to enforcement of the CSA consistent with those determinations. It also notes that the DOJ is committed to using its investigative and prosecutorial resources to address the most significant threats in the most effective, consistent, and rational way. In furtherance of those objectives, the Cole Memo provides guidance to DOJ attorneys and law enforcement to focus their enforcement resources on persons or organizations whose conduct interferes with any one or more of the following important priorities (the “Enforcement Priorities”) in preventing:

 

  the distribution of cannabis to minors;
     
  revenue from the sale of cannabis from going to criminal enterprises, gangs, and cartels;
     
  the diversion of cannabis from states where it is legal under state law in some form to other states;
     
  state-authorized cannabis activity from being used as a cover or pretext for the trafficking of other illegal drugs or other illegal activity;
     
  violence and the use of firearms in the cultivation and distribution of cannabis;
     
  drugged driving and the exacerbation of other adverse public health consequences associated with cannabis use;
     
  the growing of cannabis on public lands and the attendant public safety and environmental dangers posed by cannabis production on public lands; and
     
  cannabis possession or use on federal property.

 

  6  
 

 

We intend to conduct rigorous due diligence to verify the legality of all activities that we engage in and ensure that our activities do not interfere with any of the Enforcement Priorities set forth in the Cole Memo.

 

The Cole Memo is meant only as a guide for United States Attorneys and does not alter in any way the Department of Justice’s authority to enforce Federal law, including Federal laws relating to cannabis, regardless of state law.

 

Rohrabacher Farr Amendment

 

On December 16, 2014, H.R. 83 - Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015 was enacted and included a provision known as the “Rohrabacher Farr Amendment” which states:

 

None of the funds made available in this Act to the Department of Justice may be used, with respect to the States of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin, to prevent such States from implementing their own State laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of medical marijuana.

 

The Rohrabacher Farr Amendment represents one of the first times in recent history that Congress has taken action indicating support of medical cannabis. The Rohrabacher Farr Amendment was renewed by Congress in 2015, but expired in September 2018. It is again up for renewal, although there is no assurance that it will be renewed.

 

The Rohrabacher Farr Amendment would appear to protect the right of the states to determine their own laws on medical cannabis use; however, the actual effects of the amendment are still unclear. The Rohrabacher Farr Amendment did not remove the federal ban on medical cannabis and cannabis remains regulated as a Schedule I controlled substance. Further, the United States Department of Justice has interpreted the Rohrabacher Farr Amendment as only preventing federal action that prevents states from creating and implementing cannabis laws - not against the individuals or businesses that actually carry out cannabis laws - and has continued to sporadically commence enforcement actions against individuals or businesses participating in the cannabis industry despite such participation being legal under state law. Whether this interpretation is appropriate is still being litigated, and, while an initial district court decision has not supported the Department of Justice’s interpretation, such decision is currently under appellate review. In addition, no matter what interpretation is adopted by the courts, there is no question that the Rohrabacher Farr Amendment does not protect any party not in full compliance with state medicinal cannabis laws.

 

Potential Changes to Federal Laws and Enforcement Priorities

 

Although the Department of Justice has stated in the Cole Memo that it is not an efficient use of limited resources to direct federal law enforcement agencies to prosecute those lawfully abiding by state laws allowing the use and distribution of medical cannabis, there is no guarantee that the Department of Justice’s position will not change regarding the low-priority enforcement of federal laws. Further, the United States has a new administration in 2017, which could introduce a less favorable cannabis enforcement policy. There can be no assurances that any future administration would not change the current enforcement policy and decide to strongly enforce the federal laws.

 

In light of the 2005 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Gonzales v. Raich, under the commerce clause of the constitution, Congress may pass laws to criminalize the production and use of home-grown cannabis even where states have approved its use for medicinal purposes, which leads to the conclusion that the Controlled Substances Act may preempt state laws relating to any cannabis-related activity. Any such change in the federal enforcement program of current federal laws could cause significant financial damage to our business. While we do not directly harvest, distribute, or distribute cannabis today, we still may be deemed to be violating federal law and may be irreparably harmed by a change in enforcement by the federal or state governments.

Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018

 

On December 20, 2018, the United States federal government passed The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, which amends the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 concerning cannabis for the first time. Specifically, it refers to a new definition of “hemp” as being any C. Sativa plant that has Tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”) below 0.3% on a dry weight basis. The effect of this act is to legalize hemp or, in other words, strains of cannabis with low THC.

 

Legalizing strains that are low in THC is important for the nascent cannabis industry. Hemp is a great source of cannabidiol (“CBD”). As at the date hereof, CBD has been legalized in some form or another in all but 3 states – Idaho, Nebraska and South Dakota. So legalizing its production, even with significant oversight, opens the door for legal cannabis growing in the United States in a way that has not been available to farms, companies, and consumers since the at the Controlled Substances Act of 1970.

 

Results of operations

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company generated $2,620 revenue compared to $95,375 in 2018.

 

Our operating expenses in the nine months ended September 30, 2019 amounted to $333,213 as compared to $ 210,126 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

Our net loss in the nine months ended September 30, 2019, was $ 552,558 as compared to the net loss of $863,543 during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

The amounts presented in the financial statements do not provide for the effect of inflation on our operations or our financial position. Amounts shown for costs and expenses reflect historical cost and do not necessarily represent replacement cost. The net operating losses shown would be greater than reported if the effects of inflation were reflected either by charging operations with amounts that represent replacement costs or by using other inflation adjustments.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We had $45,848 cash on hand at September 30, 2019, compared to $59,891 at December 31, 2018.

 

At September 30, 2019, we had $ 194,430 in principal amount of outstanding notes to third parties.

 

The proceeds from loans and convertible debentures as well as cash on hand is being used to fund the operations of our current operations.

 

The following table provides detailed information about our net cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The SEC issued Financial Reporting Release No. 60, “Cautionary Advice Regarding Disclosure About Critical Accounting Policies” suggesting that companies provide additional disclosure and commentary on their most critical accounting policies. In Financial Reporting Release No. 60, the SEC has defined the most critical accounting policies as the ones that are most important to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and operating results and require management to make its most difficult and subjective judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates of matters that are inherently uncertain. Based on this definition, we have identified the following significant policies as critical to the understanding of our financial statements. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make a variety of estimates and assumptions that affect (i) the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and (ii) the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods covered by the financial statements. Our management expects to make judgments and estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. As the number of variables and assumptions affecting the future resolution of the uncertainties increase, these judgments become even more subjective and complex. Although we believe that our estimates and assumptions are reasonable, actual results may differ significantly from these estimates. Changes in estimates and assumptions based upon actual results may have a material impact on our results.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

As a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide this information.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

The Company has adopted and maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the reports filed under the Exchange Act, such as this Form 10-Q, is collected, recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are also designed to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. As required under Exchange Act Rule 13a-15, the Company’s management, including the Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, has conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s President concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act, 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 President, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Changes in Internal Controls

 

During the quarter ended September 30, 2019, there was no change in internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected or is reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II- OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

We know of no pending proceedings to which any director, member of senior management, or affiliate is either a party adverse to us or has a material interest adverse to us.

 

  None of our executive officers or directors have (i) been involved in any bankruptcy proceedings within the last five years, (ii) been convicted in or has pending any criminal proceedings (other than traffic violations and other minor offenses), (iii) been subject to any order, judgment or decree enjoining, barring, suspending or otherwise limiting involvement in any type of business, securities or banking activity or (iv) been found to have violated any Federal, state or provincial securities or commodities law and such finding has not been reversed, suspended or vacated.

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

Risks Associated to Our Business and Industry

 

Our proposed business is dependent on laws pertaining to the marijuana industry.

 

Continued development of the marijuana industry is dependent upon continued legislative authorization and/or voter approved referenda of marijuana at the state level. Any number of factors could slow or halt progress in this area. Further, progress for the industry, while encouraging, is not assured. While there may be ample public support for legislative action, numerous factors impact the legislative process. Any one of these factors could slow or halt use of marijuana, which would negatively impact our proposed business.

 

As of April 16, 2019, 33 states and the District of Columbia allow its citizens to use medical marijuana and 10 states have legalized recreational marijuana. The state laws are in conflict with the federal Controlled Substances Act, which makes marijuana use, cultivation and/or possession illegal on a national level. As discussed in the “Cole Memo” the former Obama administration has effectively stated that it is not an efficient use of resources to direct law federal law enforcement agencies to prosecute those lawfully abiding by state-designated laws allowing the use and distribution of medical marijuana. Any change in the federal government’s enforcement of current federal laws could cause significant financial damage to us and our shareholders.

 

All strains of cannabis other than hemp remain illegal under Federal law.

 

Despite the development of a legal cannabis industry under the laws of certain states and the legalization of hemp under the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, the state laws legalizing medical and adult cannabis use are in conflict with the Federal Controlled Substances Act, which classifies cannabis as a “Schedule-I” controlled substance and makes cannabis use and possession illegal on a national level. The United States Supreme Court has ruled that the Federal government has the right to regulate and criminalize cannabis, even for medical purposes, and thus Federal law criminalizing the use of cannabis preempts state laws that legalize its use. However, the Obama Administration determined that it is not an efficient use of resources to direct Federal law enforcement agencies to prosecute those lawfully abiding by state laws allowing the use and distribution of medical and recreational cannabis. There is no guarantee that the Trump Administration will not change the Federal government’s stated policy regarding the low-priority enforcement of Federal laws in states where cannabis has been legalized. Any such change in the Federal government’s enforcement of Federal laws could cause significant financial damage to us and our shareholders.

 

  10  
 

 

Laws and regulations affecting the medical marijuana industry are constantly changing, which could detrimentally affect our proposed operations.

 

Local, state and federal medical marijuana laws and regulations are broad in scope and subject to evolving interpretations, which could require us to incur substantial costs associated with compliance or alter our business plan. In addition, violations of these laws, or allegations of such violations, could disrupt our business and result in a material adverse effect on our operations. In addition, it is possible that regulations may be enacted in the future that will be directly applicable to our proposed business. We cannot predict the nature of any future laws, regulations, interpretations or applications, nor can we determine what effect additional governmental regulations or administrative policies and procedures, when and if promulgated, could have on our business.

 

As the possession and use of strains of cannabis that are not hemp is illegal under the Federal Controlled Substances Act, we may be deemed to be aiding and abetting illegal activities through the services that we provide to users and advertisers. As a result, we may be subject to enforcement actions by law enforcement authorities, which would materially and adversely affect our business.

 

Under Federal law, and more specifically the Federal Controlled Substances Act, the possession, use, cultivation, and transfer of non-hemp cannabis is illegal. Our business provides services to customers that are engaged in the business of possession, use, cultivation, and/or transfer of cannabis. As a result, law enforcement authorities, in their attempt to regulate the illegal use of cannabis, may seek to bring an action or actions against us, including, but not limited, to a claim of aiding and abetting another’s criminal activities. The Federal aiding and abetting statute provides that anyone who “commits an offense against the United States or aids, abets, counsels, commands, induces or procures its commission, is punishable as a principal.” 18 U.S.C. §2(a). As a result of such an action, we may be forced to cease operations and our investors could lose their entire investment. Such an action would have a material negative effect on our business and operations.

 

Our potential customers, clients and companies which we may elect to invest directly with may have difficulty accessing the service of banks, which may make it difficult for them to operate.

 

On February 14, 2014, the U.S. government issued rules allowing banks to legally provide financial services to state-licensed cannabis businesses. A memorandum issued by the Justice Department to federal prosecutors reiterated guidance previously given, this time to the financial industry that banks can do business with legal marijuana businesses and “may not” be prosecuted. FinCEN issued guidelines to banks noting that it is possible to provide financial services to state-licensed cannabis businesses and still be in compliance with federal anti-money laundering laws. The guidance, however, falls short of the explicit legal authorization that banking industry officials had requested the government provide, and, to date, it is not clear if any banks have relied on the guidance to take on legal cannabis companies as clients. The aforementioned policy can be changed, including in connection with a change in presidential administration, and any policy reversal and or retraction could result in legal cannabis businesses losing access to the banking industry.

 

Because the use, sale and distribution of cannabis remains illegal under federal law, many banks will not accept deposits from or provide other bank services to businesses involved with cannabis. The inability to open bank accounts may make it difficult for our existing and potential customers, clients and tenants to operate and may make it difficult for them to contract with us.

 

We are highly dependent on the services of key executives, the loss of whom could materially harm our business and our strategic direction. If we lose key management or significant personnel, cannot recruit qualified employees, directors, officers, or other personnel or experience increases in our compensation costs, our business may materially suffer.

 

We are highly dependent on our management team, specifically Aitan Zacharin. If we lose key employees, our business may suffer. Furthermore, our future success will also depend in part on the continued service of our management personnel and our ability to identify, hire, and retain additional key personnel. We do not carry “key-man” life insurance on the lives of any of our executives, employees or advisors. We experience intense competition for qualified personnel and may be unable to attract and retain the personnel necessary for the development of our business. Because of this competition, our compensation costs may increase significantly.

 

  11  
 

 

We will need to raise additional capital to continue operations over the coming year.

 

We anticipate the need to raise approximately $1,500,000 in capital to fund our operations through December 31, 2019. We expect to use these cash proceeds primarily for business development, testing, licensing and operations. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to raise these required funds or generate sufficient revenue to remain operational.

 

Government actions or digital distribution platform restrictions could result in our products and services being unavailable in certain geographic regions, harming future growth.

 

Due to our connections to the cannabis industry, governments and government agencies could ban or cause our ETP technology to become unavailable in certain regions and jurisdictions. This could greatly impair or prevent us from entering the market and commercializing our technology.

 

Failure to generate interest in our ETP technology could greatly harm our business model.

 

Our business model is reliant on its ability to attract and retain players in the cannabis market to use our ETP technology. If we are unable to convince such players to utilize our ETP technology, our business will not grow and we will not generate any revenues.

 

We may not be able to compete successfully with other established companies offering the same or similar services and, as a result, we may not achieve our projected revenue and user targets.

 

If we are unable to compete successfully with other businesses in our existing market, we may not achieve our projected revenue and/or customer targets. We compete with both start-up and established retail and technology companies. Compared to our business, some of our competitors may have greater financial and other resources, have been in business longer, have greater name recognition and be better established in the technological or cannabis markets.

 

Our lack of adequate D&O insurance may also make it difficult for us to retain and attract talented and skilled directors and officers.

 

We may in the future be subject to additional litigation, including potential class action and stockholder derivative actions. Risks associated with legal liability are difficult to assess and quantify, and their existence and magnitude can remain unknown for significant periods of time. To date, we have not obtained directors and officers liability (“D&O”) insurance. While neither Florida law nor our Articles of Incorporation or bylaws require us to indemnify or advance expenses to our officers and directors involved in such a legal action, we have entered into an indemnification agreement with our President and intend to enter into similar agreements with other officers and directors in the future. Without adequate D&O insurance, the amounts we would pay to indemnify our officers and directors should they be subject to legal action based on their service to the Company could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations and liquidity. Furthermore, our lack of adequate D&O insurance may make it difficult for us to retain and attract talented and skilled directors and officers, which could adversely affect our business.

 

We expect to incur substantial expenses to meet our reporting obligations as a public company. In addition, failure to maintain adequate financial and management processes and controls could lead to errors in our financial reporting and could harm our ability to manage our expenses.

 

We estimate that it will cost approximately $50,000 annually to maintain the proper management and financial controls for our filings required as a public reporting company. In addition, if we do not maintain adequate financial and management personnel, processes and controls, we may not be able to accurately report our financial performance on a timely basis, which could cause a decline in our stock price and adversely affect our ability to raise capital.

 

  12  
 

 

Our ETP Technology may require FDA approval.

 

The use of our ETP technology may be subject to FDA, or equivalent regulatory body approval. If so, obtaining such approval will require a substantial investment of funds and may take years. There is no assurance that we will be able to obtain regulatory approval as may be required prior to entering certain markets.

 

Due to our involvement in the cannabis industry, we may have a difficult time obtaining the various insurances that are desired to operate our business, which may expose us to additional risk and financial liabilities.

 

Insurance that is otherwise readily available, such as workers’ compensation, general liability, and directors and officer’s insurance, is more difficult for us to find and more expensive, because we are a service provider to companies in the cannabis industry. There are no guarantees that we will be able to find such insurances in the future, or that the cost will be affordable to us. If we are forced to go without such insurances, it may prevent us from entering into certain business sectors, may inhibit our growth, and may expose us to additional risk and financial liabilities. In 2019, The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc. expects to begin offering health, dental and vision insurance to its employees at an estimated monthly cost of $5,000-$10,000. The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc. carries general liability insurance. We do not currently hold any other forms of insurance, including directors’ and officers’ insurance. Because we do not have any other types of insurance, if we are made a party of a legal action, we may not have sufficient funds to defend the litigation. If that occurs a judgment could be rendered against us that could cause us to cease operations.

 

Participants in the cannabis industry may have difficulty accessing the service of banks, which may make it difficult for us to operate.

 

Despite recent rules issued by the United States Department of the Treasury mitigating the risk to banks who do business with cannabis companies operating in compliance with applicable state laws, as well as recent guidance from the United States Department of Justice, banks remain wary of accepting funds from businesses in the cannabis industry. Since the use of cannabis remains illegal under Federal law, there remains a compelling argument that banks may be in violation of Federal law when accepting for deposit funds derived from the sale or distribution of cannabis and/or related products. Consequently, businesses involved in the cannabis industry continue to have trouble establishing banking relationships. Our inability to open a bank account may make it difficult (and potentially impossible) for us, or some of our advertisers, to do business with us.

 

Risks Relating to our Common Stock

 

There is currently limited liquidity of shares of our common stock.

 

Our common stock was first quoted for trading in the quarter that ended September 30, 2018.

 

Failure to develop or maintain a trading market could negatively affect its value and make it difficult or impossible for you to sell your shares. Even if a market for common stock does develop, the market price of common stock may be highly volatile. In addition to the uncertainties relating to future operating performance and the profitability of operations, factors such as variations in interim financial results or various, as yet unpredictable, factors, many of which are beyond our control, may have a negative effect on the market price of our common stock.

 

If we fail to remain current on our reporting requirements, we could be removed from the OTC Bulletin Board which would limit the ability of broker-dealers to sell our securities in the secondary market.

 

Companies trading on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board must be reporting issuers under Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and must be current in their reports under Section 13, in order to maintain price quotation privileges on the OTC Bulletin Board. As a result, the market liquidity for our securities could be severely adversely affected by limiting the ability of broker-dealers to sell our securities and the ability of stockholders to sell their securities in the secondary market. In addition, we may be unable to get relisted on the OTC Bulletin Board, which may have an adverse material effect on the Company.

 

  13  
 

 

We do not expect to pay dividends in the future; any return on investment may be limited to the value of our common stock.

 

We do not currently anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. The payment of dividends on our common stock will depend on earnings, financial condition and other business and economic factors affecting it at such time as the board of directors may consider relevant. Our current intention is to apply net earnings, if any, in the foreseeable future to increasing our capital base and development and marketing efforts. There can be no assurance that the Company will ever have sufficient earnings to declare and pay dividends to the holders of our common stock, and in any event, a decision to declare and pay dividends is at the sole discretion of our board of directors. If we do not pay dividends, our common stock may be less valuable because a return on your investment will only occur if its stock price appreciates.

 

Authorization of preferred stock.

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation authorizes the issuance of up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock with designations, rights and preferences determined from time to time by its Board of Directors. Accordingly, our Board of Directors is empowered, without stockholder approval, to issue preferred stock with dividend, liquidation, conversion, voting, or other rights which could adversely affect the voting power or other rights of the holders of the common stock.

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation also authorizes the issuance from time to time of shares of its stock of any class, whether now or hererafter authorized, or securities convertible into shares of its stock of any class, whether now or hereafter authorized, for such consideration as the Board of Director(s) may deem advisable, subject to such restrictions or limitation, if any, as may be set forth in the bylaws of the Corporation. This authority would allow us to issue shares of preferred stock in excess of the 10,000,000 initially authorized. In fact, as at the date of this report, we have issued 10 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, 9,000,000 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock and [ ] shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock.

 

The market price for our common stock may be particularly volatile given our status as a relatively unknown company, with a limited operating history and lack of profits which could lead to wide fluctuations in our share price. You may be unable to sell your common stock at or above your purchase price, which may result in substantial losses to you.

 

Our stock price may be particularly volatile when compared to the shares of larger, more established companies that trade on a national securities exchange and have large public floats. The volatility in our share price will be attributable to a number of factors. First, our common stock will be compared to the shares of such larger, more established companies, sporadically and thinly traded. As a consequence of this limited liquidity, the trading of relatively small quantities of shares by our shareholders may disproportionately influence the price of those shares in either direction. The price for our shares could decline precipitously in the event that a large number of shares of our common stock are sold on the market without commensurate demand. Second, we are a speculative or “risky” investment due to our limited operating history and lack of profits to date, and uncertainty of future market acceptance for our potential products. As a consequence of this enhanced risk, more risk-averse investors may, under the fear of losing all or most of their investment in the event of negative news or lack of progress, be more inclined to sell their shares on the market more quickly and at greater discounts than would be the case with the stock of a larger, more established company that trades on a national securities exchange and has a large public float. Many of these factors are beyond our control and may decrease the market price of our common stock, regardless of our operating performance. We cannot make any predictions or projections as to what the prevailing market price for our common stock will be at any time. Moreover, the OTC Bulletin Board is not a liquid market in contrast to the major stock exchanges. We cannot assure you as to the liquidity or the future market prices of our common stock if a market does develop. If an active market for our common stock does not develop, the fair market value of our common stock could be materially adversely affected.

 

  14  
 

 

Our shares are subject to the U.S. “Penny Stock” Rules and investors who purchase our shares may have difficulty re-selling their shares as the liquidity of the market for our shares may be adversely affected by the impact of the “Penny Stock” Rules.

 

Our stock is subject to U.S. “Penny Stock” rules, which may make the stock more difficult to trade on the open market. A “penny stock” is generally defined by regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) as an equity security with a market price of less than US$5.00 per share. However, an equity security with a market price under US $5.00 will not be considered a penny stock if it fits within any of the following exceptions:

 

  (i) the equity security is listed on NASDAQ or a national securities exchange;
     
  (ii) the issuer of the equity security has been in continuous operation for less than three years, and either has (a) net tangible assets of at least US $5,000,000, or (b) average annual revenue of at least US $6,000,000; or
     
  (iii) the issuer of the equity security has been in continuous operation for more than three years and has net tangible assets of at least US $2,000,000.

 

Our common stock does not currently fit into any of the above exceptions.

 

If an investor buys or sells a penny stock, SEC regulations require that the investor receive, prior to the transaction, a disclosure explaining the penny stock market and associated risks. Furthermore, trading in our common stock will be subject to Rule 15g-9 of the Exchange Act, which relates to non-NASDAQ and non-exchange listed securities. Under this rule, broker/dealers who recommend our securities to persons other than established customers and accredited investors must make a special written suitability determination for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to a transaction prior to sale. Securities are exempt from this rule if their market price is at least $5.00 per share. Since our common stock is currently deemed penny stock regulations, it may tend to reduce market liquidity of our common stock, because they limit the broker/dealers’ ability to trade, and a purchaser’s ability to sell, the stock in the secondary market.

 

The low price of our common stock has a negative effect on the amount and percentage of transaction costs paid by individual shareholders. The low price of our common stock also limits our ability to raise additional capital by issuing additional shares. There are several reasons for these effects. First, the internal policies of certain institutional investors prohibit the purchase of low-priced stocks. Second, many brokerage houses do not permit low-priced stocks to be used as collateral for margin accounts or to be purchased on margin. Third, some brokerage house policies and practices tend to discourage individual brokers from dealing in low-priced stocks. Finally, broker’s commissions on low-priced stocks usually represent a higher percentage of the stock price than commissions on higher priced stocks. As a result, the Company’s shareholders may pay transaction costs that are a higher percentage of their total share value than if our share price were substantially higher.

 

Because we can issue additional shares of common stock, purchasers of our common stock may incur immediate dilution and experience further dilution.

 

We are authorized to issue up to 500,000,000 shares of common stock, of which 35.447,483 shares of common stock are issued and outstanding as of November 14, 2019. Our Board of Directors has the authority to cause us to issue additional shares of common stock and to determine the rights, preferences and privileges of such shares, without consent of any of our stockholders. Consequently, the stockholders may experience more dilution in their ownership of our stock in the future.

 

Dilution from Convertible Note Financing

 

On February 12, 2019, we issued a convertible note to Eagle Equities, LLC the terms and conditions of which are incorporated by reference in this report as Exhibit 10.1 to our current report on Form 8-K dated February 15, 2019. The note is convertible into shares of our common stock at (depending on certain factors) a 35-45% discount to the market price at the time of conversion. We intend to file in fiscal 2019 a registration statement on Form S-1 to cover the resale of the shares into which the note is convertible. As a result of these transactions, shareholders of the Company may experience substantial dilution.

A reverse stock split may decrease the liquidity of the shares of our common stock.

 

The liquidity of the shares of our common stock may be affected adversely by a reverse stock split given the reduced number of shares that will be outstanding following a reverse stock split, especially if the market price of our common stock does not increase as a result of the reverse stock split.
