Item 1. Security and Issuer

 

This Schedule 13D relates to the Common Stock, $.000001 par value per Share (the “Common Stock”) of Verus International, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”). The address of the principal executive offices of the Issuer is 9841 Washingtonian Blvd., Suite 390, Gaithersburg, MD 20878.

 

Item 2. Identity and Background

 

(a) – (c). This statement is filed by a New York limited liability company, ARJ Consulting, LLC (“ARJ”) whose principal office is at 1188 Willis Avenue, #821, Albertson, NY 11507 and by Andrew C. Garnock, an individual with a business address at 1188 Willis Avenue, #821, Albertson, NY 11507 (“Garnock”), who is the sole member and sole manager of ARJ. By virtue of such status, Garnock is deemed to beneficially own all of ARJ’s shares of Common Stock. Additionally, his wife, Rochelle Rabenou – Garnock, owns 146,068 shares of Common Stock in her individual capacity. Both ARJ and Garnock are in the business of managing their own investments.

 

(d) – (f). Neither ARJ nor any principal thereof, has, during the past five years, been convicted of any criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors), nor been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

 

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

 

The source of funds used for the purchase of the Issuer’s Common Stock in the within-described Transaction was the corporate funds of ARJ. The aggregate funds used by ARJ to make the purchase were approximately $1,750,000. Garnock’s wife used her personal funds to acquire the 146,068 shares of Issuer Common Stock owned by her.

  

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

 

ARJ previously reported its acquisition of a significant position in the Issuer’s Common Stock (“Transaction”) in a Schedule 13D filing, dated February 8, 2019, as amended on June 4, 2019 and further amended June 15, 2020 and June 30, 2020. The within report is necessitated by the private sale by ARJ of an aggregate of 100,000,000 shares to a private buyer. All calculations herein specifically exclude 480,000,000 shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of a Warrant, previously described, which contains a prohibition on exercise based upon stock ownership. Such prohibition is waivable by the holder of the Warrant. 

 

 

 

 

CUSIP NO. 94762T107 Page 5 of 7

 

Neither ARJ nor Garnock does, at present, seek control of the Issuer and ARJ has acquired the Common Stock for investment purposes. In pursuing such investment purposes, ARJ may further purchase, hold, vote, trade, dispose or otherwise deal in the Common Stock at times, and in such manner, as it deems advisable to benefit from changes in market prices of the Common Stock, changes in the Issuer’s operations, business strategy or prospects, or from sale or merger of the Issuer. To evaluate such alternatives, ARJ routinely monitors the Issuer’s operations, prospects, business development, management, competitive and strategic matters, capital structure, and prevailing market conditions, as well as alternative investment opportunities, its liquidity requirements and other investment considerations. Consistent with its investment research methods and evaluation criteria, ARJ may discuss such matters with management or directors of the Issuer, other shareholders, industry analysts, existing or potential strategic partners or competitors, investment and financing professionals, sources of credit and other investors. Such factors and discussions may materially affect, and result in, ARJ’s modifying its ownership of the Common Stock, exchanging information with the Issuer pursuant to appropriate confidentiality or similar agreements, proposing changes in the Issuer’s operations, governance or capitalization, or in proposing one or more of the other actions described in subsections (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.

 

ARJ and Garnock each reserves the right to formulate other plans and/or make other proposals, and take such actions with respect to its investment in the Issuer, including any or all of the actions set forth in paragraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D, or acquire additional Common Stock or dispose of all or part of the Common Stock beneficially owned by them, in the public market or privately negotiated transactions. ARJ and Garnock may, at any time reconsider and change its plans or proposals relating to the foregoing.
