EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

Reliance on Relief Order.

 

On March 24, 2020, we filed a current report on Form 8-K in compliance with and in reliance upon the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Order under Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Granting Exemptions From Specified Provisions of the Exchange Act and Certain Rules Thereunder dated March 4, 2020 (Release No. 34-88318) as modified and superseded by a new SEC order issued on March 25, 2020 (Release No. 34-88465) (collectively, the “Order”) to delay the filing of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 (the “Report”) due to circumstances related to the coronavirus disease 2019 (“COVID-19”).

 

On May 6, 2020, we filed a Rule 12b-25 notification of late filing of our Form 10-K indicating that we required additional time to review and prepare certain information in our financial statements following delays resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic related audit field work completion challenges.  

PART I

 

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Annual Report on Form 10-K (this “Annual Report”) contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts, but rather are based on our current expectations, estimates, and projections about us and our industry. You can identify these forward-looking statements when you see us using words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “plan,” “believe,” “seek,” and other similar expressions that are intended to identify forward-looking statements. They include statements regarding our:

 

Financial position;

 

Business plans;

 

Budgets;

 

Amount, nature, and timing of capital expenditures;

 

Cash flow and anticipated liquidity;

 

Future operations of unknown nature costs;

 

Acquisition and development of other technology;

 

Future demand for any products and services acquired; and

 

Operating costs and other expenses.

 

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties, and other factors, some of which are beyond our control, are difficult to predict, and could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or forecasted. All statements other than statements of historical facts included in this Annual Report including, without limitation, any projections and assumptions in this Annual Report, are forward-looking statements. Although we believe the expectations and forecasts reflected in these and other forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance they will prove to have been correct. They can be affected by inaccurate assumptions or by known or unknown risks and uncertainties. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expected results include:

 

General economic conditions;

 

Our cost of operations;

 

Our ability to generate sufficient cash flows to continue operating;

  2  
 

Availability of capital;

 

The strength and financial resources of our competitors;

 

Our ability to find and retain skilled personnel; and

 

The lack of liquidity of our common stock.

 

You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which reflect our management’s view only on the date of this Annual Report. We undertake no obligation to update these statements or to report the result of any revision to the forward-looking statements that we may make to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Annual Report or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements. 

 

ITEM 1.

BUSINESS.

 

Recent Developments Related to the COVID-19 Outbreak

 

All of the disclosures set forth in Item 1 below should be read in the context of the recent COVID-19 related developments discussed immediately below.  All of the disclosures recited in “Recent Developments Related to the COVID-19 Outbreak” are as of the date of this filing.

 

The occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic may negatively affect our operations depending on the severity and longevity of the pandemic.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic is currently impacting countries, communities, supply chains and markets as well as the global financial markets. A pandemic typically results in social distancing, travel bans and quarantine, and this may limit access to our facilities, customers, management, support staff and professional advisors. These factors, in turn, may not only impact our operations, financial condition and demand for our goods and services but our overall ability to react timely to mitigate the impact of this event. Also, it may hamper our efforts to comply with our filing obligations with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Depending on the severity and longevity of the COVID-19 pandemic, our business, customers, and shareholders may experience a significant negative impact.

 

COVID-19 Update

 

AmeraMex has been approved by the Small Business Administration (SBA) for the following financial assistance:

 

The Company will receive $228,442 under the SBA Paycheck Protection Program.
The Company has been approved for up to $2 million by the SBA for a Disaster Assistance Loan. The amount of the loan and the loan terms are not yet finalized.

 

AmeraMex is mandating a work-from-home policy for its sales, administrative, and accounting employees. Shop employees are busy servicing contracts with our essential customers and are often traveling to do so. They are practicing social distancing and we are only allowing one customer in the facility at a time. Our Company has worked out payment schedules with our customers in need of assistance and, in turn, has accepted all assistance offered by our vendors.

Objectives

     
Continue to develop and expand the availability of our products to the heavy equipment industry
Expand online, direct, wholesale, and government sales (both domestic and international)
  Expand our construction equipment division
     

Description of Business and Principal Products or Services

We sell, lease, and rent heavy equipment to companies within four industries:

 

1. Construction (light and infrastructure);
2. Shipping logistics;
3. Mining; and
4. Commercial farming.

 

With customers in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, and Africa, we have over 30 years of experience in heavy equipment sales and service and inventories of top-of-the-line equipment from manufacturers such as Taylor Machine Works Inc. and Terex Heavy Equipment.

 

Our parts warehouse contains a sizeable heavy equipment parts inventory, ensuring that we have the necessary parts on hand to maintain and repair all lines of represented equipment. Our in-house and field technicians solve service needs to get equipment back on the job as quickly as possible.

 

Our service facility is equipped with overhead cranes, a paint shop, and a welding-fabricating shop. The facility includes modern, specialized tools and state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. Our service staff has access to manufacturers’ technical specifications to speed repairs.

 

Distribution Network

 

We sell, lease, and rent heavy equipment to a wide variety of industries, including construction, mining, infrastructure, logging, logistics, transportation, and commercial farming. We are authorized dealers for manufacturers such as Taylor Machine Works, Terex Heavy Equipment, Barko Hydraulics, Genie, and Menzi Muck.

 

We acquire used equipment for resale through trade-ins from our customers, returned customer leases, and selective purchases. We also sell parts and provide repair and maintenance services directly to customers at our Northern California location.

 

Hamre Heavy Haul, one of our divisions, operates a fleet of heavy haul equipment which includes a fleet of Kenworth trucks and Cozad heavy haulers to transport heavy equipment for our purchase and lease customers as well as others throughout the United States.

 

Our end-user base is diverse and fragmented, including, among others, light and heavy manufacturers, trucking and automotive companies, rental companies, building materials and paper suppliers, lumber, metal products, warehouses, retailers, food distributors, container handling companies, and domestic and foreign government agencies.

 

We obtain new customers in several different ways:

 

Current customer referrals;
  Website;
Billboard advertisements;
Company location where our inventory yard is highly visible from the freeway;
Monitoring government websites, bidding on jobs and winning contracts; and
Authorized equipment maker referrals.

 

Governmental Regulation

 

We are subject to numerous federal, state, and local rules and regulations, including regulations promulgated by the Environmental Protection Agency and similar state agencies with respect to storing, shipping, disposing, discharging, and manufacturing hazardous materials and hazardous and non-hazardous waste. These activities are associated with the repair and maintenance of our equipment and customers’ equipment. Compliance with these rules and regulations has not had any material effect on our operations, nor do we expect it to in the future. Further, we have not made, and do not anticipate making, any material capital expenditures in compliance with environmental regulations. However, there can be no assurance that these expectations will prove to be accurate, particularly if regulations change, unforeseen incidents occur or unknown past contamination or non-compliance is discovered, among other similar events.

Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act

 

We qualify as an “emerging growth company” as defined in Section 101 of the Jumpstart our Business Startups Act (“JOBS Act”) as we did not have more than $1,070,000,000 in annual gross revenue and did not have such amount as of December 31, 2019, our last fiscal year.

 

We may lose our status as an emerging growth company on the last day of our fiscal year during which (i) our annual gross revenue exceeds $1,070,000,000 or (ii) we issue more than $1,070,000,000 in non-convertible debt in a three-year period. We will lose our status as an emerging growth company if at any time we are deemed to be a large accelerated filer. We will lose our status as an emerging growth company on the last day of our fiscal year following the fifth anniversary of the date of the first sale of common equity securities pursuant to an effective registration statement.

 

As an emerging growth company, we may take advantage of specified reduced reporting and other burdens that are otherwise applicable to generally reporting companies. These provisions include:

 

A requirement to have only two years of audited financial statements and only two years of related Management’s Discussion and Analysis Disclosures;

 

Reduced disclosure about the emerging growth company’s executive compensation arrangements; and

 

No non-binding advisory votes on executive compensation or golden parachute arrangements.  

 

As an emerging growth company, we are exempt from Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and Section 14A(a) and (b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). Such sections are provided below:

 

Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 requires a public company’s auditor to attest to, and report on, management’s assessment of its internal controls.

 

Sections 14A(a) and (b) of the Exchange Act, implemented by Section 951 of the Dodd-Frank Act, require companies to hold shareholder advisory votes on executive compensation and golden parachute compensation. In addition, under Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act, we will be required to file preliminary and definitive proxy statements to ensure that shareholders' rights are upheld.

 

We have already taken advantage of these reduced reporting burdens in this Annual Report, which are also available to us as a smaller reporting company as defined under Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act.

 

As long as we qualify as an emerging growth company, we will not be required to comply with the requirements of Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and Section 14A(a) and (b) of the Exchange Act.

 

In addition, Section 107 of the JOBS Act also provides that an emerging growth company can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), for complying with new or revised accounting standards.  We are choosing to irrevocably opt in to the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards under Section 102(b)(2) of the JOBS Act.  

 

History

 

We have grown from a used forklift dealer in Northern California to the owner and operator of a multi-million dollar fleet of heavy equipment for sale, lease, or rent to companies in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, and Africa.

 

The Company has three business units:

 

1. Hamre Equipment Inc.;

2. Hamre Heavy Haul; and

3. Hamre Parts & Service Organization.

 

These units are authorized dealers for well-known equipment manufacturers and carry a large inventory of heavy equipment and Hamre Parts & Service Organization includes a complete maintenance organization with a large parts inventory and service department.

  5  
 

We supply heavy equipment to many different industries. Currently, the majority of our revenue is from the sales of new and refurbished container handlers to portside logistics companies. In addition to this line of work, we have an extensive equipment inventory for infrastructure development. Growing demand for infrastructure development typically calls for equipment to be rented, rather than purchased, allowing us to maximize the use of our inventory.

 

The Hamre Heavy Haul business unit includes a customized fleet of heavy haul equipment and was initially formed to transfer heavy equipment for AmeraMex, however, in recent years, we have expanded to market our heavy haul services to third-party companies throughout the United States.

 

Strategy

 

We have a clearly defined strategy to find opportunities that expand our reach within the United States and internationally. We now have customers in over 12 countries. As we continue to sell new equipment to U.S. customers, we purchase older equipment from well-respected brands that may not meet EPA Tier III requirements in the U.S., and refurbish the equipment to like-new condition. The equipment is sold AS IS with NO warranty agreement. The equipment is then marketed internationally. Our target markets for sales of new and refurbished equipment are:

 

Canada
  Indonesia
Pakistan
Germany
Singapore
Vietnam
China
Russia
India
The Middle East
West Africa
Central America
Mexico

 

Opportunities

 

We believe the demand for leased or rented equipment is growing. Companies within the construction and logistics industries hesitate to purchase equipment that may become idle if related markets weaken. Additionally, the cost of many types of heavy-duty equipment and container handlers has increased substantially because of new federal emission control standards. Due to these and other concerns, many companies forgo purchasing and instead rent or lease needed equipment.

 

Internationally, our ongoing expansion, specifically within Western Africa, allows us to take advantage of the improving global infrastructure construction market and the increased import and export of natural resources. We have already established marketing opportunities within the governments of several West African countries.

 

The current trade issues with China have no bearing on our business or current plans. However, trade issues between the United States and China are constantly evolving and the future could bring about potential negative impacts on our business, including increased costs and higher prices.

 

Market

 

Our market is highly competitive and constantly changing. Commercial success is frequently dependent upon capital availability, the effectiveness and sufficiency of which are very difficult to accurately predict. It is one of the principal economic risks of companies in our industry.

 

According to the “Heavy Construction Equipment Market Size, Share & Trend Analysis Report By Product (Earth Moving, Material Handling, Concrete & Road Construction), By Application, And Segment Forecasts, 2018 – 2025,” published by Grand View Research in January 2018 (the “Construction Equipment Report”): “The global heavy construction equipment market size was valued at $55.9 billion in 2016. Increased investment in the infrastructure sector is expected to drive growth over the forecast period. Heavy duty construction equipment is likely to witness high demand from the infrastructure sector owing to a rise in construction activities.”

 

  6  
 

Competition

 

There is a large number of companies and individuals engaged in the provision of construction equipment; accordingly, there is a high degree of competition in our industry. Many of the companies and individuals with whom we compete have substantially greater technical, personnel, and financial resources than us. In view of our limited financial resources, we will continue to be at a significant competitive disadvantage compared to our competitors.

 

According to the Construction Equipment Report, global vendors such as Caterpillar, Komatsu Ltd., and AB Volvo are some of the leading market players in the heavy equipment industry. These vendors dominate the market in terms of technology, experience, and quality.

 

A rise in prominence of Chinese vendors in the industry has been observed in the last few years. Manufacturers in China have capitalized on government-funded infrastructure projects and are continuously evolving and in some circumstances, acquiring European vendors.

 

Some other key players in the market for heavy duty construction equipment are Hitachi Construction Machinery Co. Ltd., Liebherr, Deere & Company, Doosan Bobcat, XCMG Group, SANY Group, and Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Co. Ltd.

 

Amount Spent on Research and Development

 

None.

 

Employees

 

As of December 31, 2019, we have 16 full time employees and 1 part time employee. In addition to our employees, we utilize various consultants and contractors for other services on an as-needed basis.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

We anticipate that we will from time to time become subject to claims and legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. It is not feasible to predict the outcome of any such proceedings and we cannot assure that their ultimate disposition will not have a materially adverse effect on our business, financial condition, cash flows or results of operations. As of the filing of this Annual Report, we are party to two pending legal proceedings.

Rules Governing Low-price Stocks That May Affect Our Stockholders' Ability to Resell Shares of Our Common Stock

 

We are a “penny stock” company, as our stock price is less than $5.00 per share. If we are able to obtain an exchange listing for our stock, we cannot make an assurance that we will be able to maintain a stock price greater than $5.00 per share and if the share price were to fall below such threshold, that we would not be subject to the penny stock rules.

 

The penny stock rules require broker-dealers, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to make a special suitability determination for the purchaser to receive the purchaser’s written consent to the transaction prior to sale, to deliver standardized risk disclosure documents prepared by the SEC that provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer must also provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock. In addition, the penny stock regulations require the broker-dealer to deliver, prior to any transaction involving a penny stock, a disclosure schedule prepared by the SEC relating to the penny stock market, unless the broker-dealer or the transaction is otherwise exempt. A broker-dealer is also required to disclose commissions payable to the broker-dealer and the registered representative and current quotations for the securities. Finally, a broker-dealer is required to send monthly statements disclosing recent price information with respect to the penny stock held in a customer's account and information with respect to the limited market in penny stocks.

 

Holders

 

We have approximately 258 record holders of our common stock as of the date of this Annual Report according to the records of our transfer agent. The number of our stockholders of record excludes any estimate by us of the number of beneficial owners of shares held in street name, the accuracy of which cannot be guaranteed.

 

Our transfer agent is Pacific Stock Transfer Company, 6725 Via Austi Parkway, #300, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89119. Their telephone number is (702) 361-3033.

 

Dividends

 

We have not declared a dividend on our common stock, and we do not anticipate the payment of dividends in the near future as we intend to reinvest our profits to grow our business. There are no restrictions in our articles of incorporation or bylaws that restrict us from declaring dividends. The Nevada Revised Statutes, however, does prohibit us from declaring dividends where, after giving effect to the distribution of the dividend:

 

  8  
 

      we would not be able to pay our debts as they become due in the usual course of business; or
         
    our total assets would be less than the sum of our total liabilities, plus the amount that would be needed to satisfy the rights of shareholders who have preferential rights superior to those receiving the distribution.

     

    Employees Stock Compensation Plan

     

    We do not have a Stock Option Plan as of the date of this filing.

     

    Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities.

    During the year ended December 31, 2016, we issued 14,125,000 shares of common stock to officers, directors, and employees for services rendered valued at $108,763. In addition, during the year ended December 31, 2016, we issued 75,000,000 shares of common stock to an officer and director for the settlement of $80,000 in related party debt and accounts payable.

     

    On March 10, 2016, an aggregate of 25,000,000 shares of common stock were issued to McCloud Communications for investor relations services valued at $97,500 for 2015; 50,000,000 shares of common stock were issued to Lee Hamre for a $185,000 partial repayment of a $700,000 loan to us; and 500,000 shares of common stock were issued to Michael Maloney for services valued in the amount of $1,850.

     

    On February 12, 2016, an aggregate of 12,000,000 shares of common stock were given to three board members as compensation for their services during 2015. Michael Maloney, Lee Hamre, and Marty McCloud were each awarded 4,000,000 shares of common stock. The value of the services rendered for each director was calculated to be $15,000.

     

    During 2019 and 2018, we did not issue any shares of common or preferred stock.

    All issuances were exempt from the registration requirements of Section 5 of the Securities Act of 1933 as they did not involve a public offering under Section 4(a)(2) and were issued as restricted securities as defined in Rule 144 of the Act. 

    ITEM 6. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA

     

    We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not required to provide the information under this item.

     

    ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATION

    Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

     

    Certain statements contained in this Annual Report, including statements regarding the anticipated development and expansion of our business, our intent, belief, or current expectations, primarily with respect to the future operating performance of our company and the products and services we expect to offer and other statements contained herein regarding matters that are not historical facts, are “forward-looking” statements. Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis contains not only statements that are historical facts, but also forward-looking statements which involve risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. Because forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, our actual results may differ materially from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements. The following discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of our operations is based upon, and should be read in conjunction with, the audited financial statements and related notes elsewhere in this Annual Report.

     

    Overview

     

    We sell, lease, and rent heavy equipment to companies within four industries: construction (light and infrastructure), shipping logistics, mining, and commercial farming. With customers in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, and Africa, we have over 30 years of experience in heavy equipment sales and service and inventories of top-of-the-line equipment from manufacturers such as Taylor Machine Works Inc. and Terex Heavy Equipment.

     

    We were originally incorporated as Hamre Equipment Company, Inc. in California on November 17, 1989. We merged into AmeraMex International, Inc., a Nevada corporation, on May 29, 1990.

    Results of Operations

     

    Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2019 (audited) as compared to the Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2018 (audited)

     

    We had revenue of $12,655,238 for the year ended December 31, 2019 as compared to revenue of $9,797,854 for the year ended December 31, 2018, a 29% increase. This increase is attributed to a very large order of new equipment for one of our long standing customers as well as a general economic improvement for business as the economy continues to rebound from the economic downturn.

     

    Sales of Equipment and Other Revenues in 2019 were $10,296,901 and made up 81% of our Total Revenues and in 2018 made up $7,027,948, or 71.7%, of Total Revenues. The remaining portion of Total Revenues, Rentals and Leases, were $2,358,337, or 19%, in 2019 and in 2018, Rentals and Leases made up 28.3% of Total Revenues and totaled $2,769,906.

     

    From 2018 to 2019, Sales of Equipment and Other Revenues increased $3,268,953, or 47%, while during the same period Rentals and Leases decreased $411,569, or 15%. In 2019, one of our long term rental contracts ended which caused the decrease year over year in Rentals and Leases. In 2019 we delivered a large order of new equipment to one of our long time customers which accounted for the spike in Sales of Equipment. 

     

    We had costs of revenue of $10,294,562 for the year ended December 31, 2019 as compared to costs of $6,686,504 for the year ended December 31, 2018. Our costs increased by $3,608,058, or 55%, while our revenues increased by 29%. This is as a result of the higher cost of new and used equipment as well as the increased hauling costs.

     

    We experienced an increase in operating expenses from $1,426,975 in 2019 as compared to $1,159,913 in 2018. This increase of approximately 23% in operating expenses is a result of the expanded marketing program that was started in 2019 as well as an increase in travel by both our sales and service teams.

     

      10  
     

    From 2018 to 2019, our Interest Expense decreased from $828,585 to $747,855. This decrease is due in part to a March 28, 2019 payoff of all debt tied to a line of credit for borrowing and refinancing up to $6.5 million with an interest rate of 10% per annum, due monthly. This line of credit expires March 22, 2022. Upon funding of the line of credit, proceeds were used to repay one of our outstanding lines of credit in addition to other notes payable (see Note 7). Based upon the refinance of these notes, we anticipate interest expense in 2020 will be lower than interest expense in 2019. As part of this payoff, there was a one-time Early Extinguishment of Debt that amounted to $482,908.

     

    We had net loss of $(90,294) for the year ended December 31, 2019 as compared to net income of $885,595 for the year ended December 31, 2018. We had a decrease of 110% in our net income due in part to two main factors: an Early Extinguishment of Debt that amounted to $482,908 and a Joint Venture Liability that was initially recorded as revenue but ultimately adjusted in the fourth quarter amounting to $459,500.

      

    Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

     

    We have no 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.

    Our Net Income from 2018 to 2019 decreased by $975,889 from $885,595 in 2018 to $(90,294) in 2019. As of December 31, 2018, our Net Cash provided by Operating Activities was $1,420,165. This number increased to $2,491,724 as of December 31, 2019. Comparing December 31, 2018  to December 31, 2019, our Accounts Receivable decreased from $182,641 to $42,095, our Inventory was increased by $381,787 as of December 31, 2018 and as of December 31, 2019, Inventory had increased by $2,142,641. Accounts Payable as of December 31, 2018 was $937,588, but by December 31, 2019, our Accounts Payable was reduced by $777,227.

     

    As of December 31, 2018, our Payments for Property and Equipment was $473,757 and as of December 31, 2019 was $419,293. Payments for Rental Equipment as of the end of 2018 was $1,936,628 and as of the end of 2019 was $375,912. Proceeds from Sale of Equipment was consistent and as of the end of 2018, proceeds were $131,165 and as of the end of 2019, proceeds were $0. Overall, Net Cash Used in Investing Activities as of the end of 2018 was $2,279,220 and $795,205 by the end of 2019.

     

    We received Proceeds from Notes Payable as of December 31, 2018 of $2,843,059 and as of December 31, 2019, the amount was $960,505, a decrease of $1,882,554, which is a decrease of 66%. Payments on Notes Payable increased as of the end of 2019 to $4,144,680 from $2,577,325 at the end of 2018. This is an increase of $1,567,355, or 63%. There was a Joint Venture Liability in 2019 for $459,500, this is a 100% increase over $0 for 2018. In addition, the Net Borrowings under Lines of Credit as of the end of 2019 was $5,947,205 compared to $286,456 at the end of 2018, an increase of $5,660,749, which is 1976%. Overall Net Cash Provided by Financing Activities went from $503,182 as of the end of 2018 to $3,203,681 as of the end of 2019, due to the increase in Net Borrowings under Lines of Credit, an increase in the amount of Payments on Notes Payable and a Joint Venture Liability. 

      11  
     

    We expect to generate sufficient cash flows from operations to meet our obligations, and to continue to obtain financing for equipment purchases in the normal course of business. On March 28, 2019, we entered into a line of credit with a finance company that provides for borrowing and refinancing up to $6,500,000. We believe that our expected cash flows from operations and our commitments for the above referenced credit facility will be sufficient to operate in the normal course of business.

     

    Management may sell and lease equipment and obtain additional debt financing to acquire equipment and provide cash flow for operations.

     

    As of December 31, 2019, we had a working capital surplus of $3.8 million.

     

    Critical Accounting Policies

     

    All companies are required to include a discussion of critical accounting policies and estimates used in the preparation of their financial statements. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our critical accounting policies and estimates. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form our basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

     

    Our inventory consists of used equipment held for sale and includes parts and attachments. Our inventory is valued at the lower of the inventory’s cost (specific identification or first in, first out basis) or the current market price of the inventory, less costs to sell. Our expenditures for transporting equipment to our facility and refurbishment costs, including parts and labor, are added to the value of the inventory and these costs are capitalized. Our management compares the cost of inventory with its market value and allowances are made to write down inventory to market value, if market value is lower.

     

    Expenditures for maintenance and repairs for property and equipment and rental equipment are expensed as incurred. Any additional renewals and improvements to property and equipment and rental equipment, and which extend its useful life, are capitalized. When these assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the related costs for the assets and the accumulated depreciation are removed from the respective accounts. Any gain or loss is included in our operations. We depreciate these assets using the straight-line method for substantially all assets with estimated lives as follows:

     

    Furniture and Fixtures   5-7 years.
    Leasehold Improvements   Estimated life of the asset as building is owned by Hamre
    and leased on a month-to-month basis
    Vehicles   3-5 years
    Equipment   5-7 years
    Rental equipment   5-7 years

     

    For the impairment or disposal of our long-lived assets (assets expected to be kept for at least one year) used in operations, when indicators of impairment are present and the undiscounted cash flows estimated to be generated by the type of asset are less than the asset’s carrying amounts, a loss is recognized based on the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the long-lived assets. Any loss on long-lived assets which are disposed are determined in a similar manner, however, the fair values are reduced for the cost of disposal. In 2019 and 2018, we do not believe we had any impairment of our long-lived assets.

     

    Revenue Recognition

     

    Our primary source of generating revenue is through the sale and rental of heavy equipment. In accordance with accounting rules, we recognize revenue when the customer obtains control of the promised equipment and reflect what we are paid in exchange for the equipment. To determine our revenue recognition depending upon whether the equipment is sold or leased, we perform the following five steps: (i) identify the contract(s) with the customer; (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) calculate the transfer price; (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligation in the contract; and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the customer satisfies a performance obligation. In the event any revenue does not meet these recognition criteria, such revenue will be deferred.

     

    Equipment Sales – We recognize revenue from the sale of equipment upon delivery of the equipment to the customer and passing the risk of loss to the customer, and when we have no other significant obligations with regard to the equipment and collectability of the revenue from the customer is reasonably assured.

     

      12  
     

    Equipment Rentals – Our rental revenues are made up of short-term agreements with monthly or annual terms. We recognize rental revenues in the month rental payments are due based upon the accrual method of accounting. Our equipment lease agreements contain varying terms, but typically range from one to five years for commercial entities. In addition to commercial entities, we also have lease agreements with various governments that have terms of 12 to 24 months and contain options to renew annually through five years. When lease terms are completed, and depending on the specific lease agreement, our customers may have the option to return the equipment, to renew the lease term, purchase the equipment at fair market value, or continue to rent the equipment on a month-to-month basis. Our agreements do not contain provisions for contingent rentals, which would allow rentals to cease or continue based upon certain defined events. Rental revenues for equipment leases are recognized upon receipt. Our initial direct costs for rental equipment are capitalized and amortized over the expected term of the applicable lease. To date, initial direct costs for operating leases have not been significant.

    We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not required to provide the information under this item.

    REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

     

    The Stockholders and Board of Directors of AmeraMex International, Inc.

     

    Opinion on the Financial Statements

    We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of AmeraMex International, Inc. (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 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.

     

    Basis for Opinion

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

     

    We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits 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.

    FOR THE YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2019 and 2018

     

    Note 1 - Organization and Basis of Presentation

     

    Organization and Line of Business

     

    AmeraMex International, Inc., (the “Company”) was incorporated on May 29, 1990 under the laws of the state of Nevada. The Company sells, leases and rents new and refurbished heavy equipment primarily in the U.S. The Company operates under the name of Hamre Equipment.

     

    Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

     

    Liquidity Considerations

     

    At December 31, 2019, the Company had working capital of approximately $3.8 million. On May 1, 2020, the Company received a Paycheck Protection Program Loan in the amount of $228,442 to cover payroll and utility expenses during the Pandemic. The Company is following the government guidelines and tracking costs to insure 100% forgiveness of the loan. On April 21, 2020, the Company was approved and received a $10,000 advance on an SBA Loan for $2 million. We have not received the final breakdown on terms, but typically the loan is at 3.75% interest for a 30 year term with the first six (6) months of payments deferred. Funding on this loan is anticipated within the next two weeks. Finally, we received an increase in one of our equipment lines of credit from $500,000 to $1,050,000. Moving forward, we expect to generate sufficient cash flows from operations to meet our obligations, and we expect to continue to obtain financing for equipment purchases in the normal course of business. We believe that our expected cash flows from operations, together with our current credit facility, will be sufficient to operate in the normal course of business for next 12 months from the issuance date of these financial statements.

     

    Risks and Uncertainties

     

    In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared a novel strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) a pandemic, as a result of which the Company is subject to additional risks and uncertainties. In response to the pandemic, governments and organizations have taken preventative or protective actions, such as temporary closures of non-essential businesses and “shelter-at-home” guidelines for individuals. As a result, the global economy has been negatively affected, and the Company’s business has been negatively affected in a number of ways. The Company has had several large transactions that have been put on hold until the State of California is reopened. In addition, the Company has all sales, administrative and account employees working from home. Shop employees are practicing social distancing and we only allow one customer in the facility at a time. Most directly, a number of states and local governments have taken steps that have prohibited or curtailed the sale of equipment or curtailed construction activities during the pandemic. In some jurisdictions, shelter-at-home orders, or other orders related to the pandemic, impede equipment sales. The severity of the impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s business will depend on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, the duration and severity of the pandemic and the extent and severity of the impact on the Company’s customers, all of which are uncertain and cannot be predicted. The Company’s future results of operations and liquidity could be adversely impacted by delays in payments of outstanding receivable amounts beyond normal payment terms. Given the dynamic nature of this situation, the Company cannot predict with absolute certainty, the impact of COVID-19 on its financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

     

    Basis of Presentation

     

    The accompanying financial statements have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (U.S. GAAP). In the opinion of management, all adjustments and disclosures necessary for a fair presentation of these financial statements have been included. Such adjustments consist of normal recurring adjustments.

     

    Use of Estimates

     

    The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. It is possible that accounting estimates and assumptions may be material to the Company due to the levels of subjectivity and judgment involved. Significant estimates in these financial statements include the allowance for doubtful accounts, inventory reserve, valuation allowance for deferred taxes, and estimated useful life of property and equipment.

     

    Cash

     

    Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand and cash in time deposits, certificates of deposit and all highly liquid debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less. At times, cash deposits may exceed FDIC- insured limits. As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, no amounts exceeded the FDIC-insured limit. The Company has not experienced any losses related to a concentration of cash or cash equivalents in an FDIC insured financial institution.

     

    Accounts Receivable

     

    The Company grants credit to customers under credit terms that it believes are customary in the industry and does not require collateral to support customer receivables. The Company provides an allowance for doubtful collections, which is based upon a review of outstanding receivables, historical collection information, and existing economic conditions. As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the allowance for doubtful accounts was $28,000 and $87,000, respectively.

    NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
    FOR THE YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2019 and 2018

     

    Inventory

     

    Inventory consists of used equipment held for sale, as well as parts and attachments. Inventory is valued at the lower of the inventory’s cost (specific identification or first in, first out basis) or the current market price of the inventory, less costs to sell. Expenditures for inbound transportation and refurbishment costs, including parts and labor which add to the value of the inventory are capitalized. Management compares the cost of inventory with its market value and an allowance is made to write down inventory to market value, if lower.

     

    Property and Equipment, and Rental Equipment

     

    Property and equipment and rental equipment are stated at cost. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred; additions, renewals and improvements, which extend the useful life of the assets, are capitalized. When these assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the respective accounts, and any gain or loss is included in operations. Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method for substantially all assets with estimated lives as follows:

     

    Furniture and fixtures   5-7 years
    Leasehold improvements  

    Estimated life of the asset as building is owned by Hamre and leased on a month to month basis

    Vehicles   3-5 years
    Equipment   5-7 years
    Rental equipment   5-7 years

     

    Other Assets

     

    Other assets at December 31, 2019 and 2018, consist principally of cash surrender value of life insurance policies.

     

    Long-Lived Assets

    The Company applies the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment, which addresses financial accounting and reporting for the impairment or disposal of long-lived assets. ASC 360 requires impairment losses to be recorded on long-lived assets used in operations when indicators of impairment are present and the undiscounted cash flows estimated to be generated by those assets are less than the assets’ carrying amounts. In that event, a loss is recognized based on the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the long-lived assets. Loss on long-lived assets to be disposed of is determined in a similar manner, except that fair values are reduced for the cost of disposal. Based on its review as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company believes there was no impairment of its long-lived assets.

     

    Fair Value of Financial Instruments

     

    For certain of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash and equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable, advances to suppliers, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and short-term debt, the carrying amounts approximate their fair values due to their short maturities.

     

    Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, requires disclosure of the fair value of financial instruments held by the Company. FASB 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 carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for receivables and current liabilities each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of their fair values because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest. The three levels of valuation hierarchy are defined as follows:

     

    Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

    AMERAMEX INTERNATIONAL, INC.
    NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
    FOR THE YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2019 and 2018

     

    Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets in inactive markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

     

      Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology use one or more unobservable inputs which are significant to the fair value measurement.

          

    The Company analyzes all financial instruments with features of both liabilities and equity under FASB ASC Topic 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity, and FASB ASC Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging.

     

    As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, the Company did not identify any assets and liabilities required to be presented on the balance sheet at fair value.

     

    Revenue Recognition

     

    The Company generates revenues primarily through the sale and rental of heavy equipment. In May 2014 and in subsequent updates, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, as amended, and referred herein as ASC 606. ASC 606 is a comprehensive revenue recognition standard that will supersede nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under current U.S. GAAP and replace it with a principle-based approach for determining revenue recognition. ASC 606 requires that companies recognize revenue based on the value of transferred goods or services as they occur in the contract. It also requires additional disclosure about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from customer contracts, including significant judgments and changes in judgments and assets recognized from costs incurred to obtain or fulfill a contract. ASC 606 was effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017.

     

    Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASC 606, with no significant impact on our financial statements. In accordance with ASC 606, the Company recognizes revenue when the customer obtains control of promised goods or services, in an amount that reflects the consideration which it expects to receive in exchange for those goods and services. To determine revenue recognition for arrangements that the Company deems are within the scope of ASC 606, the Company performs the following five steps: (i) identify the contract(s) with a customer; (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) calculate transfer price; (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligation in the contract; and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation. Any revenues that do not meet these recognition criteria will be deferred.

     

    Equipment Sales

     

    The Company recognizes revenue from equipment sales upon delivery of the equipment to the customer and the risk of loss passes to the customer and, no other significant obligations of the Company exist and collectability is reasonably assured.

     

    Equipment Rentals

     

    Rental revenues comprise of short term agreements that can have monthly or annual terms. Rental revenues are recognized in the month they are due on the accrual basis of accounting. Our operating lease agreements have varying terms, typically one to five years with commercial entities. We also have agreements governmental entities that are 12 to 24 months in length, with options to renew annually through year five. Upon lease termination, customers, depending in the individual lease agreements, may have the option to return the equipment, to renew the lease term, purchase the equipment at fair market value, or continue to rent on a month-to-month basis. Our operating leases do not provide for contingent rentals. Revenues related to operating leases are recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. Negotiated lease early-termination charges are recognized upon receipt. Initial direct costs are capitalized and amortized over the expected term of the leases. To date, initial direct costs for operating leases have not been insignificant.

    Shipping and Handling

     

    Costs incurred for shipping and handling of equipment sold to customers are included in costs of goods sold in the statements of income.

     

    Sales Tax

     

    Sales tax collected from customers is initially recorded as a liability and then remitted in a timely manner to the appropriate governmental entity.

     

    Warranty Costs

     

    Generally, the Company sells its equipment with no warranty. In the event we determine we should repair equipment, we may do so at our election. In the event we do so, such costs are expensed as incurred.

     

    Stock-Based Compensation

     

    The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation. FASB ASC Topic 718 requires companies to measure compensation cost for stock-based employee compensation at fair value at the grant date and recognize the expense over the employee’s requisite service period. The Company recognizes in the statement of operations the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity- based compensation issued to employees and non-employees. There were no stock options outstanding as of December 31, 2019 and 2018 and no shares issued for compensation during the years then ended.

     

    Income Taxes

     

    The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes. ASC 740 requires a company to use the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes, whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences, and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion, or all of, the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

     

    Under ASC 740, a tax position is recognized as a benefit only if it is “more likely than not” that the tax position would be sustained in a tax examination, with a tax examination being presumed to occur. The amount recognized is the largest amount of tax benefit that is greater than 50% likely of being realized on examination. For tax positions not meeting the “more likely than not” test, no tax benefit is recorded.

     

    Basic and Diluted Earnings Per Share

     

    Earnings per share is calculated in accordance with ASC Topic 260, Earnings Per Share. Basic earnings per share (EPS) is based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted EPS is based on the assumption that all dilutive convertible shares and stock warrants were converted or exercised. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, options and warrants are assumed to be exercised at the beginning of the period (or at the time of issuance, if later), and as if funds obtained thereby were used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. There were no potentially dilutive securities outstanding during 2019 and 2018.

     

    Concentrations

     

    At December 31, 2019, 65% of the accounts receivable was due from three customers and at December 31, 2018, 53% of the accounts receivable was due from three customers. For the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, one customer accounted for 10% or more of sales at 12.74% and 11.16% respectively. The loss of one or more of these customers would have a negative impact on the Company’s financial results.

    Recent Accounting Pronouncements

     

    In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (ASC 842). ASC 842 required lessees to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and required expanded disclosures about leasing arrangements. ASU 2016-02 was effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 and interim periods in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. We adopted this standard with no impact since our facilities are leased from our chief executive officer on a month-to-month basis, and we have no significant equipment leases accounted for as operating leases.

     

    Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the SEC did not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company’s present or future financial statements.

These costs are amortized over the term of the loan and during the year ended December 31, 2019, amortization totaled $67,360.

     

    Note 7 – Lines of Credit

     

    The Company has a line of credit with a finance company that provides for borrowing up to $500,000. The line of credit is secured by the equipment purchased and is interest free if paid within 180 days from finance date. After applicable free interest period interest calculates as follows; 30 day LIBOR plus 6.75% - rate after Free Period to Day 365, 30 day LIBOR plus 7.00% - Rate Day 366 to 720, 30 Day LIBOR plus 7.25% - Rate Day 721 to 1095, 30 Day LIBOR plus 12.00% Matured Rate Day 1096 and above. Each piece of equipment has it owns calculations based on date of purchase. At December 31 2019 and 2018, the amounts outstanding under this line of credit agreement were $408,033 with $91,967 available and $316,505 with $183,495 available, respectively. Interest expense during the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 were $7,414 and $3,684, respectively. The agreement has no expiration date providing the Company does not default. See Note 16 for increase in facility.

      

    In March 2019, the Company entered into a line of credit with a finance company that provides for equipment borrowing and refinancing up to $6.5 million, as amended. The credit facility expires March 22, 2022. Interest is due monthly at a rate of 10%, per annum. Principal only becomes due and payable if the Company reaches the maximum balance under the credit facility, for which management does not expect to reach. If the maximum balance is reached, the principal becomes payable at 1.25% of the outstanding principal balance per month. The line of credit is secured by substantially all the Company assets, other than those specifically secured by an existing agreement. At December 31 2019, the amount outstanding under this line of credit agreement was $6,313,628 with $186,372 available for purchases.

We have two notes payable tied to these deals that as of December 31, 2019, have a combined total due of $221,566. The brokerage made $42,681 on the deal. The notes are secured by the equipment.

    Note 16 – Subsequent Events

     

    On April 21, 2020 the Company received a $10,000 advance on an SBA loan of $2 million dollars. We have not received the final terms, but we have been instructed that typically these notes are 30 year terms, interest at 3.75% per annum, with six (6) months of deferred payments. We currently do not have a monthly payment amount but are expecting funding within June 2020.

     

    On May 1, 2020, the Company received a Paycheck Protection Program Loan in the amount of $228,442 to cover payroll and utility expenses during the Pandemic. The Company is following the government guidelines and tracking costs to insure 100% forgiveness of the loan.

     

    On May 6, 2020, the Company was named in a suit filed in the State of Virginia by a manufacturer asking the court to hold the Company liable for the amount of our customer’s deposit the manufacturer erroneously wired to a bank in China after receiving fraudulent bank wiring instructions from a cloned email account. The deposit amount was $1,057,400. On May 13, 2020, the Company was named in a second suit filed in the State of Virginia by the customer demanding return of their deposit. We believe that we have no liability in connection with these matters and we intend to defend the matter appropriately. We have notified our insurance carrier to assist us in resolving this matter.

     

    On May 22, 2020, the limit on the line of credit with a finance company that provides for borrowing up to $500,000 was increased to $1,050,000 with all other terms remaining the same as stated in Note 7.

    ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

     

    Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

     

    Our management, under the supervision of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer performed an evaluation (the “Evaluation”) of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to provide a reasonable level of assurance that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of December 31, 2019, due to the presence of material weaknesses, our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective.

     

    Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

     

    This Annual Report does not include a report of management's assessment regarding internal control over financial reporting or an attestation report of the company's registered public accounting firm due to a transition period established by rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission for newly public companies.

     

    Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

     

    An evaluation was performed under the supervision of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of whether any change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in the Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f)) occurred during the year ended December 31, 2019. Based on that evaluation, our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, concluded that there was a change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended December 31, 2019 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. This change was to establish an audit committee of our board of directors comprised of three independent directors.

    Conflicts of Interest – General

     

    There can be no assurance that management will resolve all conflicts of interest in favor of the Company.

     

    Our directors and officers are, or may become, in their individual capacities, officers, directors, controlling shareholder and/or partners of other entities engaged in a variety of businesses. Thus, there exist potential conflicts of interest including, among other things, time, efforts, and corporate opportunity, involved in participation with such other entities. Consequently, there are potential inherent conflicts of interest in their acting as officers and directors of the Company. Insofar as the officers and directors are engaged in other business activities, management anticipates it will devote only up to approximately 40 hours per week to the Company's affairs.

      

    Conflicts of Interest – Corporate Opportunities

     

    Presently, there is no requirement included in our Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, or minutes which provides that officers and directors of our Company must disclose business opportunities which come to their attention. Our officers and directors do, however, have a fiduciary duty of loyalty to us to disclose any business opportunities brought to their attention, in their capacity as an officer and/or director or otherwise. Excluded from this duty would be opportunities which the person learns about through his or her involvement as an officer and/or director of another company. We have no intention of merging with or acquiring an affiliate, associated person, or business opportunity from any affiliate or any client of any such person.

     

    Our Board of Directors has adopted a policy that the Company will not seek a fund of, any entity in which any officer or director serves as an officer or director or in which they or their family members own or hold a controlling ownership interest. Although the Board of Directors could elect to change this policy, the Board of Directors has no present intention to do so.

     

    Annual Meeting

     

    Our annual meeting of stockholders is scheduled to take place on November 5 of each year. This will be an annual meeting of stockholders and will include the election of directors. The annual meeting will be held at our principal office or at such other place as permitted by the laws of the State of Nevada and on such date as may be fixed from time to time by resolution of our board of directors.

     

    Involvement in certain legal proceedings

     

    During the past five years, none of our officers or directors has been a party to or executive officer of an entity that has filed any bankruptcy petitions. During the past five years, none of our officers or directors have been convicted or been a named subject of any pending criminal proceedings. During the past five years, none of our officers or directors has been held to have violated any State or Federal Securities laws or any Federal commodities law or otherwise have been subject to any order, judgment or decree not subsequently reversed, suspended, or vacated permanently enjoining such officer or director from the activities enumerated in Regulation S-K Item 4.01(f)(3).

     

    Compliance with Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act

     

    Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires that our officers and directors and persons who own more than 10% of our common stock, file reports of ownership and changes in ownership with the SEC.  Based solely on our review of the SEC’s EDGAR database, copies of such forms received by us, or written representations from certain reporting persons, we believe that during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, the following delinquencies have occurred:

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

     

    The following table sets forth information with respect to the beneficial ownership of our outstanding common stock by:

    Each person who is known by us to be the beneficial owner of 5% or more of our common stock;

     

    Our executive officers, and each director as identified in the “Management — Executive Compensation” section; and

     

    All of our directors and executive officers as a group.

      

    Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and generally includes voting or investment power with respect to securities. Shares of common stock and options, warrants and convertible securities that are currently exercisable or convertible within 60 days of the date of this document into shares of our common stock are deemed to be outstanding and to be beneficially owned by the person holding the options, warrants or convertible securities for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of the person, but are not treated as outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of any other person.

    The information below is based on the number of shares of our common stock that we believe were beneficially owned by each person or entity as of the date of this registration statement.

    Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act governs the determination of beneficial ownership of securities. That rule provides that a beneficial owner of a security includes any person who directly or indirectly has or shares voting power and/or investment power with respect to such security. Rule 13d-3 also provides that a beneficial owner of a security includes any person who has the right to acquire beneficial ownership of such security within sixty days, including through the exercise of any option, warrant or conversion of a security. Any securities not outstanding which are subject to such options, warrants or conversion privileges are deemed to be outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage of outstanding securities of the class owned by such person. Those securities are not deemed to be outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage of the class owned by any other person. Included in this table are only those derivative securities with exercise prices that we believe have a reasonable likelihood of being “in the money” within the next 60 days.

     

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

During the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, we repaid $18,849 and $49,008, respectively, on the note. The note incurred $29,137 in interest in 2019 and $29,774 of interest in 2018. See Exhibit 3.6.

     

    Director Independence
