PART I

 

Item 1. Business

 

General Overview

 

Authentic Holdings Inc. (formerly Global Fiber Technologies, Inc.) was incorporated in Nevada on March 25, 2005. We are a multi-faceted media and merchandising company with operating subsidiaries and license rights, described below.

 

On June 18, 2019, we completed the acquisition of assets from AH Originals, Inc. (“AHO”), a corporation controlled by the same owner group of our company for the consideration of 6,400,000 shares of our common stock to be issued and the issuance of a promissory note of $447,150 that bears 3% interest per annum and has a one-year term with eight options to extend the maturity date for six-month periods. In addition, we issued to AHO 200,000 common shares of Authentic Heroes, Inc. (“AHI”), a subsidiary created by us to hold the purchased assets.

 

The Authentic Heroes, Inc. subsidiary has patented technology that takes the original event worn apparel from an iconic individual and creates “Fan-wear” collectibles containing fibers from that original. All of the Fan-Wear items have an embedded QR Code that registers the items on our Blockchain for their provenance and immutability.

 

The Authentic Heroes subsidiary is also in the business of creating vinyl records for distribution into retail department stores and online sales and has pressed 150,000 Vinyls to date under the heading of “Old is Gold” Christmas.

 

The Authentic Heroes subsidiary also has completed an NFT Platform on the Ethereum Blockchain capable of housing millions of NFTs. The NFT platform has minted 500,000 NFTs as part of free music NFT given away with its “Old is Gold” Christmas album.

 

On April 26, 2023, we entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Maybacks Global Entertainment LLC, an Arizona limited liability company (“Maybacks”), and the members of Maybacks. As a result of the transaction, Maybacks became our wholly owned subsidiary.

 

Maybacks is looking to capitalize on the “cutting the cord” phenomenon and take advantage of its low operating costs and ability to offer free TV and channel access for established organizations at a fraction of what cable and satellite dish companies charge.

 

Maybacks is an Over the Air and platform driven television network. Maybacks has grown from a 25-channel network to a 56-channel network in the past year.  With 56 channels, Maybacks broadcasts various programs that include movies, sports, serial television shows and live events. All of Maybacks’ programming is sourced from its own fully owned library. Maybacks generates revenue through the placement of insert advertisements, revenue share programs, Vast Tags as well as channel access fees and barter.

 

Maybacks has three full-time employees and outsources all if its logistics and broadcasting to a third party known as Wise DV.

 

Maybacks has agreements with  several other networks are looking to carry Maybacks’ programing in exchange for revenue share programs.

 

There are many Over the Air and platform driven television networks with greater financial resources and experience in running, such as Sling TV, which is owned by DISH Network as well as many other independent networks. We plan to compete with many firms, including corporations with large divisions, many of these companies have greater financial, technical, or marketing resources, longer operating histories, greater brand recognition or larger customer bases than we do and are able to respond more effectively to changing business and economic conditions than we can.

There are no assurances that we will be able to compete against these larger rivals and gain market share. We have realized revenues during the quarter ended September 30, 2023, and for the year ended December 31, 2023, and we are hopeful more advertising agreements are signed and more ad pressions sold to generate future revenue for our company. While these are signs that progress in our company has been made, we are not profitable and still face several challenges, including those presented as ‘Risk Factors” in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

On June 20, 2023, the Company closed an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Asset Agreement”) with Goliath Motion Picture Promotions owned by Priscella Cooper (the “Seller”). On the Closing Date, pursuant to the Asset Agreement, the Company acquired various full-length motion pictures and serial television shows (the “Assets”).

 

Since execution, however, the fulfillment of the Asset Agreement has not been possible because the Assets could not be entirely conveyed to the Company as intended by the parties.  Therefore, on May 10, 2024, the parties entered into an Amended Asset Purchase Agreement, to be effective as of December 31, 2023, to convert the purchase of Assets to a license to use those Assets for a period of 10 years.

 

As a result of the license of the Assets, the Company plans to “tokenize” all the titles, namely 14,000 plus full-length motion pictures and serial television shows. The Company is currently using the non-tokenized library for content distribution on its own TV Network known as Maybacks. It is the Company’s intention to start the tokenization process within thirty (30) days of this filing and have the “Alpha” version completed within 90 days from its start date. Once the first 1000 movies are tokenized it is the Company’s intention to market those movies on its own Video on Demand and Linear Television platforms. In addition, the Company plans to aggressively market its tokenized platform to other TV networks as well as major film production and distribution companies.

 

The Company intends to fund operations through increased sales and debt and/or equity financing arrangements, which may be insufficient to fund expenditures or other cash requirements, until the Company generates positive cash flow from operations. However, the Company’s financial statements show an accumulated deficit of $37,302,081 as of December 31, 2023, with a net working capital deficit of $$4,261,894 and limited cash resources. These factors raise doubts about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within the next year.

 

The Company's ability to continue as a going concern depends on its ability to repay or settle its current indebtedness, generate positive cash flow, and raise capital through equity and debt financing or other means on favorable terms. If the Company cannot obtain additional funds when required or on favorable terms, management may be necessary to restructure the Company or cease operations.

 

Our address is 50 Division Street Suite 500, Somerset NJ 08873. Our corporate website is http://globalfibertechnologies.com/.

 

The Company has never declared bankruptcy or been in receivership. The Company has earned minimal revenues and has limited cash on hand. The Company has sustained losses since inception and has primarily relied upon the sale of its securities and loans from related parties and outside parties for funding.

 

Competition

 

ECO Tek 360 is in the uniform and related products segment, we will compete with many firms, including corporations with large divisions, many of these companies have great financial, technical, or marketing resources, longer operating histories, greater brand recognition or larger customer bases than we do and may be able to respond more effectively to changing business and economic conditions than we can. The nature and degree of competition varies with the customer and the market. Industry statistics are not available.

 

Competitive pricing may require us to reduce our future prices, which would impact future profitability or result in lost sales. Our competitors, many of whom have greater resources than we do, may be better able to withstand these price reductions and lost sales.

 

Maybacks Global Entertainment. There are many Over the Air and platform driven television networks with greater financial resources and experience in running, such as Sling TV, which is owned by DISH Network as well as many other independent networks. We plan to compete with many firms, including corporations with large divisions, many of these companies have greater financial, technical, or marketing resources, longer operating histories, greater brand recognition or larger customer bases than we do and are able to respond more effectively to changing business and economic conditions than we can.

 

Goliath Motion Pictures There are many companies in the Movie Production and Movie Distribution businesses  with greater financial resources and experience in running, such as Lionsgate, New Line Pictures and Universal Films, as well as large corporations with large divisions, many of these companies have greater financial, technical, or marketing resources, longer operating histories, greater brand recognition or larger customer bases than we do and are able to respond more effectively to changing business and economic conditions than we can.

 

Authentic Heroes, Inc  There are many companies in the collectible clothing business with greater financial resources and experience in running, such as Fanatics, Nike and Mitchell and Ness, as well as many other independent merchandise companies. We plan to compete with many firms, including corporations with large divisions, many of these companies have greater financial, technical, or marketing resources, longer operating histories, greater brand recognition or larger customer bases than we do and are able to respond more effectively to changing business and economic conditions than we can.

Seasonality

 

We do not have a seasonal business cycle in any of our businesses

 

Employees

 

We have three full time employees at Maybacks Global Entertainment. Our officers and directors furnish their time to the development of the Company at no cost and intend to do whatever work is necessary in order to generate revenues. We do not foresee hiring any employees in the near future.

 

Government Regulation

 

The Company’s operations are subject to certain foreign, federal, state, and local regulatory requirements relating to, among others, environmental, waste management, labor and health and safety matters. Management believes that the Company’s business is operated in material compliance with all such regulations.

 

The Maybacks subsidiary and Goliath license agreement are guided by rules and regulations set by the Federal Communications Commission. FCC regulations law includes technical parameters for these facilities, as well as content issues like copyright, profanity, and localism or regionalism. Maybacks maintains strict standards as to what it broadcasts and maintaining its compliance with FCC’s Communication Act.

 

Research and Development

 

We have not incurred any research and development expenditures over the last two fiscal years.

 

Intellectual Property

 

On May 2, 2022, Authentic Heroes, Inc. (“Authentic Heroes”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Global Fiber Technologies, Inc., (the “Company”), entered into a License Agreement (the “License Agreement”) with the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Director, Paul Serbiak (“Serbiak”).

 

Pursuant to the License Agreement, Serbiak agreed to provide Authentic Heroes with an exclusive license to use certain of Serbiak’s intellectual property rights, including Patent No. US 10,781,539 B2 entitled “AUTHENTICATABLE ARTICLES, FABRIC AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURE” and of the invention therein described, for products in the sports and music memorabilia business.

 

In exchange for such license, Authentic Heroes agreed to (i) pay Serbiak $100 within ten business days of License Agreement and a fee of $10,000 on or before January 1, 2023, (ii) pay Serbiak royalties of 1% of the revenue generated from the sale of the products amounting to at least $3,000,000 in revenue at year three of the License Agreement and another 1% of the revenue generated from the sale of the products amounting to at least $10,000,000 in revenue at year five (5) of the License Agreement. If Authentic Heroes fails to achieve at least $3,000,000 in revenue at year three or $10,000,000 in revenue at year five from this date of the License Agreement, then the exclusive license shall be a non-exclusive license.

 

The patent is at the core our manufacturing process. In addition, we utilize trade secrets in combination with our patented manufacturing process that allows what we believe are market advantages.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

Investing in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. Our business, reputation, results of operations, financial condition and stock price can be affected by a number of factors, whether currently known or unknown, including those described below. When any one or more of these risks materialize from time to time, our business, reputation, results of operations, financial condition and stock price can be materially and adversely affected.

 

Because of the following factors, as well as other factors affecting the Company’s results of operations and financial condition, past financial performance should not be considered to be a reliable indicator of future performance, and investors should not use historical trends to anticipate results or trends in future periods. This discussion of risk factors contains forward-looking statements.

 

You should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described below, together with all of the other information in this report, including the consolidated audited financial statements and the related notes appearing at the end of this annual report on Form 10-K, with respect to any investment in shares of our common stock. If any of the following risks actually occurs, our business, financial condition, results of operations and future prospects would likely be materially and adversely affected. In that event, the market price of our common stock could decline, and you could lose part or all of your investment. These statements, like all statements in this report, speak only as of the date of this report (unless another date is indicated) and we undertake no obligation to update or revise the statements in light of future development. 

 

Risks Related to Our Financial Condition

 

There is a substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The report of our independent auditors that accompanies our consolidated financial statements includes an explanatory paragraph indicating there is a substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern, citing our need for additional capital for the future planned expansion of our activities and to service our ordinary course activities (which may include servicing of indebtedness). The inclusion of a going concern explanatory paragraph in the report of our independent auditors will make it more difficult for us to secure additional financing or enter into strategic relationships on terms acceptable to us, if at all, and likely will materially and adversely affect the terms of any financing that we might obtain. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

We have incurred significant losses in prior periods, and losses in the future could cause the quoted price of our common stock to decline or have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, our ability to pay our debts as they become due, and on our cash flows. To date, we have generated limited revenues from our operations, and we have incurred significant losses in prior periods. For the years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022, we incurred a net loss of $1,658,,455 and $1,157,783, respectively, and, as of such dates, we had an accumulated deficit of $38,038,768 and $36,380,313, respectively.

 

We had net cash used in operating activities of $227,228 for the year ended Decembre 31, 2023. At December 31, 2023, we had a working capital deficit of $4,998,581. Any losses in the future could cause the quoted price of our common stock to decline or have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, our ability to pay our debts as they become due, and on our cash flows.

 

At December 31, 2023, we do not have sufficient cash resources or current assets to pay our obligations. This circumstance represents a significant risk to our business and shareholders and results in: (1) making it more difficult for us to satisfy our obligations; (2) impeding us from obtaining additional financing in the future for working capital, capital expenditures and general corporate purposes; and (3) making us more vulnerable to a downturn in our business and limits our flexibility to plan for, or react to, changes in our business.

 

The time required for us to become profitable under our current business structure is highly uncertain, and we cannot assure you that we will achieve or sustain profitability or generate sufficient cash flow from operations to meet our planned capital expenditures, working capital and debt service requirements. If required, our ability to obtain additional financing from other sources also depends on many factors beyond our control, including the state of the capital markets and the prospects for our business. The necessary additional financing may not be available to us or may be available only on terms that would result in further dilution to the current owners of our common stock.

Table of Contents

 

We intend to seek interim short-term financing to continue full legal compliance with its SEC filings, and to bring on the necessary personnel to begin its future development activities. Our working capital needs will be met largely from the sale of debt and public equity securities, including in this offering, until such time that funds provided by operations, if ever, are sufficient to fund working capital requirements. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability or classification of recorded assets and liabilities that might result should our company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Our cash expenses are large relative to our cash resources and cash flow. At December 31, 2023, we had $0 in cash and continue to have limited cash resources available to us. Consequently, we have been required either to sell new shares of our common stock or convertible promissory notes to raise the cash necessary to pay ongoing expenses and to make new investments, which actions could lead to continuing dilution in the interest of our existing shareholders.

 

We will require additional capital to fund our operations and if we do not obtain additional capital, we may be required to substantially limit our operations. Our business does not presently generate the cash needed to finance our current and anticipated operations and we need to obtain additional financing to finance our operations, until such time that we are able to conduct profitable revenue-generating activities.

 

Anticipated, but as yet unproven, revenue from sponsorships, television, licensing, special events and market reservations are expected to provide sufficient working capital for on-going operations. Our capital requirement in connection with our growth plans requires substantial working capital to fund our business.

 

We require short-term financing, as well as financing over the next 12 months, to satisfy our anticipated capital needs.

 

Through the date of this Annual Report, smaller investments have been obtained to meet certain our ongoing expenses. We cannot assure you that adequate financing will be available on acceptable terms, if at all. Our failure to raise additional financing, including through this offering, in a timely manner would adversely affect our ability to pursue our business plan and could cause us to delay launching our league and our proposed business plan.

 

Our quarter-to-quarter performance may vary substantially, and this variance, as well as general market conditions, may cause our stock price to fluctuate greatly and even potentially expose us to litigation. We have been unable to generate significant revenues under our our business plan and we cannot accurately estimate future revenue and operating expenses based on historical performance. Our quarterly operating results may vary significantly based on many factors, including:

 

 

-

Fluctuating demand for our potential products;

 

 

 

 

-

Announcements or implementation by our competitors of new products;

 

 

 

 

-

Amount and timing of our costs related to our marketing efforts or other initiatives;

 

 

 

 

-

Timing and amounts relating to the expansion of our operations;

 

 

 

 

-

Our ability to enter into, renegotiate or renew key agreements;

 

 

 

 

-

Timing and amounts relating to the expansion of our operations; or

 

 

 

 

-

Economic conditions specific to our industry, as well as general economic conditions.

 

Our current and future expense estimates are based, in large part, on estimates of future revenue, which is difficult to predict. We expect to make significant operating and capital expenditures in connection with the development of our plan of business. We may be unable to, or may elect not to, adjust spending quickly enough to offset any unexpected revenue shortfall. If our increased expenses were not accompanied by increased revenue in the same quarter, our quarterly operating results would be harmed.

The COVID-19 pandemic could have a material adverse impact on our business, results of operations and financial condition. In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus was reported to have surfaced in Wuhan, China. In January 2020, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern.” This worldwide outbreak has resulted in the implementation of significant governmental measures, including lockdowns, closures, quarantines and travel bans intended to control the spread of the virus. Companies are also taking precautions, such as requiring employees to work remotely, imposing travel restrictions and temporarily closing businesses and facilities. These restrictions, and future prevention and mitigation measures, have had an adverse impact on global economic conditions and are likely to have an adverse impact on consumer confidence and spending, which could materially adversely affect the supply of, as well as the demand for, our products. Uncertainties regarding the economic impact of COVID-19 is likely to result in sustained market turmoil, which could also negatively impact our business, financial condition and cash flows.

 

Should the adverse impacts described above (or others that are currently unknown) occur, whether individually or collectively, our company would expect to experience, among other things, an inability to produce revenues and cash flows sufficient to conduct operations, meet the terms of our existing debt covenants and other requirements under our financing arrangements or service our outstanding debt. Such a circumstance could, among other things, exhaust our liquidity (and ability to access liquidity sources) or trigger an acceleration to pay a significant portion or all of our then-outstanding debt obligations, which we may be unable to do.

 

Risks Related to our Business

 

If we are unable to build and maintain our brand of information, our operating results may be adversely affected. The lack of awareness of our brands, among consumers require us to build and maintain a strong brand identity to attract and retain a broad viewer base. We must continue to expand into new markets to build brand awareness. Also important are effective consumer communications, such as marketing, customer service, and public relations. The role of social media by potential consumers is an important factor in our brand perception. If our efforts to create compelling viewing and/or otherwise promote and maintain our brand are not successful, our ability to attract and retain consumers may be adversely affected. Such a result would likely lead to a decline in attendance of our audience, and in the future, impact our viewership, which would adversely affect our operating results.

 

Any incidents affecting our network and information systems or other technologies could have an adverse impact on our business, reputation and results of operations. Our business operations rely heavily on network and information systems and other technology systems, including cloud computing. Incidents affecting these systems, including cyber-attacks, viruses, other destructive or disruptive software or activities, process breakdowns, outages, or accidental release of information could result in a disruption of our operations, improper disclosure of personal data of clients, subscribers, or employees, or other privileged or confidential information, or unauthorized access to our digital content or any other type of intellectual property. It is common for a company such as ours to be subjected to continuous attempted cyber-attacks and other malicious efforts that could cause cybersecurity incidents, and we have in the past experienced, and expect to continue to experience cybersecurity incidents, although we have not identified any such incidents that we have determined to be material to our operations as of the date of this report. Any such incident could damage our reputation and may require us to expend substantial resources on litigation, regulatory investigation, and remediation costs, and could therefore have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations. We continue to work closely with our outside advisors to prevent cybersecurity incidents, and to invest in maintaining and improving cybersecurity resilience. The company’s cybersecurity risks and mitigation actions are monitored by our Chief Executive Officer and reported to our Board of Directors. Nevertheless, because of the nature of the threats and the cloud computing environment, there can be no assurance that our preventative efforts can fully prevent or mitigate all such incidents or be successful in avoiding harm to our business in the future.

 

A significant portion of our library revenues comes from a small number of titles, a portion of which we may be limited in our ability to exploit. We depend on a limited number of titles in any given fiscal quarter for the majority of the revenues generated by our library. In addition, many of the titles in our library are not presently distributed and generate substantially no revenue. Additionally, our rights to the titles in our library vary; in some cases, we have only the right to distribute titles in certain media and territories for a limited term. If we cannot acquire new product and the rights to popular titles through production, distribution agreements, acquisitions, mergers, joint ventures or other strategic alliances, or renew expiring rights to titles generating a significant portion of our revenue on acceptable terms, any such failure could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, liquidity and prospects.

Our success depends on external factors in the streaming network industry. Our success depends on the commercial success of our channels and programs they contain, which is unpredictable. Generally, the popularity of our programs depends on many factors, including the critical acclaim they receive, the format of their initial release, their talent, their genre and their specific subject matter, audience reaction, the quality and acceptance of motion pictures or television content that our competitors release into the marketplace at or near the same time, critical reviews, the availability of alternative forms of entertainment and leisure activities, general economic conditions and other tangible and intangible factors, many of which we do not control and all of which may change. We cannot predict the future effects of these factors with certainty. Our success will depend on the experience and judgment of our management to select and develop new investment and production opportunities. We cannot assure that our channels and programming will obtain favorable reviews or ratings or that broadcasters will license the rights to broadcast any of our television programs in development or renew licenses to broadcast programs in our library. Additionally, we cannot assure that any original programming content will appeal to our distributors and subscribers. The failure to achieve any of the foregoing could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, liquidity and prospects.

 

Our business depends on the appeal of our content to distributors and subscribers, which is difficult to predict. Our business depends in part upon viewer preferences and audience acceptance of our network programming. These factors are difficult to predict and are subject to influences beyond our control, such as the quality and appeal of competing programming, general economic conditions and the availability of other entertainment activities. We may not be able to anticipate and react effectively to shifts in tastes and interests in markets. A change in viewer preferences could cause our programming to decline in popularity, which could jeopardize renewal of affiliation agreements with distributors. In addition, our competitors may have more flexible programming arrangements, as well as greater amounts of available content, distribution and capital resources and may be able to react more quickly than we can to shifts in tastes and interests.

 

If our programming does not gain the level of audience acceptance we expect, or if we are unable to maintain the popularity of our programming, we may have a diminished negotiating position when dealing with distributors, which could reduce our revenue and earnings. We cannot ensure that we will be able to maintain the success of any of our current programming. This could materially adversely impact our business, financial condition, operating results, liquidity and prospects.

 

We compete with other programming services, including cable programming, national broadcast television, local broadcast television stations and SVOD to secure desired programming, the competition for which has increased as the number of programming services has increased. Other programming services that are affiliated with programming sources such as movie or television studios or film libraries may have a competitive advantage over us in this area. Some of these competitors have exclusive contracts with motion picture studios or independent motion picture distributors or own film libraries.

 

We must successfully respond to rapid technological changes and alternative forms of delivery or storage to remain competitive. The entertainment industry continues to undergo significant developments as advances in technologies and new methods of product delivery and storage (including the emergence of alternative distribution platforms), and certain changes in consumer behavior driven by these developments emerge. New technologies affect the demand for our content, the manner in which our content is distributed to consumers, the sources and nature of competing content offerings and the time and manner in which consumers acquire and view our content. New technologies also may affect our ability to maintain or grow our business and may increase our capital expenditures. We and our distributors must adapt our businesses to shifting patterns of content consumption and changing consumer behavior and preferences through the adoption and exploitation of new technologies.

 

For instance, such changes may impact the revenue we are able to generate from traditional distribution methods by decreasing the viewership of our networks on systems of cable operators, satellite television providers and telecommunication companies, or by decreasing the number of households subscribing to services offered by those distributors. If we cannot successfully exploit these and other emerging technologies, our appeal to targeted audiences might decline which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, liquidity and prospects.

Protecting and defending against intellectual property claims may have a material adverse effect on our business. Our ability to compete depends, in part, upon successful protection of our intellectual property. We attempt to protect proprietary and intellectual property rights to our productions through available copyright and trademark laws and licensing and distribution arrangements with reputable international companies in specific territories and media for limited durations. Despite these precautions, existing copyright and trademark laws afford only limited practical protection in certain countries where we distribute our products. As a result, it may be possible for unauthorized third parties to copy and distribute our productions or certain portions or applications of our intended productions, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, liquidity and prospects.

 

Litigation may also be necessary to enforce our intellectual property rights, to protect our trade secrets, or to determine the validity and scope of the proprietary rights of others or to defend against claims of infringement or invalidity. Any such litigation, infringement or invalidity claims could result in substantial costs and the diversion of resources and could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, liquidity and prospects.

 

Our business involves risks of liability claims for content of material, which could adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition. As a distributor of media content, we may face potential liability for defamation, invasion of privacy, negligence, copyright or trademark infringement (as discussed above), and other claims based on the nature and content of the materials distributed. These types of claims have been brought, sometimes successfully, against producers and distributors of media content. Any imposition of liability that is not covered by insurance or is in excess of insurance coverage could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, liquidity and prospects.

 

Piracy of films and television programs could adversely affect our business over time. Piracy is extensive in many parts of the world and is made easier by the availability of digital copies of content and technological advances allowing conversion of films and television content into digital formats. This trend facilitates the creation, transmission and sharing of high quality unauthorized copies of motion pictures and television content. The proliferation of unauthorized copies of these products has had and will likely continue to have an adverse effect on our business, because these products reduce the revenue we receive from our products. In order to contain this problem, we may have to implement elaborate and costly security and anti-piracy measures, which could result in significant expenses and losses of revenue. We cannot assure you that even the highest levels of security and anti-piracy measures will prevent piracy.

 

In particular, unauthorized copying and piracy are prevalent in countries outside of the U.S., Canada and Western Europe, whose legal systems may make it difficult for us to enforce our intellectual property rights. While the U.S. government has publicly considered implementing trade sanctions against specific countries that, in its opinion, do not make appropriate efforts to prevent copyright infringements of U.S. produced motion pictures and television content, there can be no assurance that any such sanctions will be enacted or, if enacted, will be effective. In addition, if enacted, such sanctions could impact the amount of revenue that we realize from the international exploitation of our content.

 

Our activities are subject to a variety of laws and regulations relating to privacy and child protection, which, if violated, could subject us to an increased risk of litigation and regulatory actions. In addition to our company websites and applications, we use third-party applications, websites, and social media platforms to promote our projects and engage consumers, as well as monitor and collect certain information about users of our online forums. A variety of laws, rules and regulations have been adopted in recent years aimed at protecting all individuals, including children who use the internet such as the Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”). COPPA sets forth, among other things, a number of restrictions on what website operators can present to children under the age of 13 and what information can be collected from them. There are also a variety of laws and regulations governing individual privacy with respect to the acquisition, storage, disclosure, use and protection of personal data, including under the European Union General Data Protection Regulation and various other domestic and international privacy and data security laws and regulations, which are continually evolving. If our activities were to violate any applicable current or future laws and regulations, we could be subject to litigation and regulatory actions, including fines and other penalties.

Our networks business is limited by regulatory constraints which may adversely impact our operations. Although our networks business generally is not directly regulated by the FCC, under the Communications Act of 1934 and the 1992 Cable Act, there are certain FCC regulations that govern our network business. Furthermore, to the extent that regulations and laws, either presently in force or proposed, hinder or stimulate the growth of the cable television and satellite industries, our network business will be affected. As we continue to expand internationally, we also may be subject to varying degrees of local government regulations.

 

Regulations governing our network businesses are subject to the political process and have been in constant flux historically. Further material changes in the law and regulatory requirements must be anticipated. We cannot assure you that we will be able to anticipate material changes in laws or regulatory requirements or that future legislation, new regulation or deregulation will not have a materially adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, liquidity and prospects.

 

If we fail to effectively manage our growth, and effectively develop our business, our business will be harmed. Failure to manage growth of operations could harm our business. To date, a significant amount of activities and resources have been directed at developing our business plan and potential related products. In order to effectively manage growth, we must:

 

 

-

Continue to develop an effective planning and management process to implement our business strategy;

 

 

 

 

-

Hire, train and integrate new personnel in all areas of our business; and

 

 

 

 

-

Increase capital investments.

 

We cannot assure you that we will be able to accomplish these tasks or effectively manage our growth.

 

We are dependent upon our key executives for future success. Our future success to a significant extent depends on the continued services of our executive officers, Christopher Giordano, our President, and Paul Serbiak, our CEO. The departure of Mr. Giordano or Mr. Serbiak could materially adversely affect our ability to implement our business strategy. Currently, we do not maintain for our benefit, any key-man life insurance on our key executives.

 

If we are unable to recruit and retain key personnel, our business may be harmed. If we are unable to attract and retain key personnel, our business may be harmed. Our failure to enable the effective transfer of knowledge and facilitate smooth transitions with regard to our key employees could adversely affect our long-term strategic planning and execution.

 

Our business plan is not based on independent market studies. We have not commissioned any independent market studies concerning our business plans. Rather, our plans for implementing our business strategy and achieving profitability are based on the experience, judgment and assumptions of our management. If these assumptions prove to be incorrect, we may not be successful in our business operations.

 

Our Board of Directors may change our policies without shareholder approval. Our policies, including any policies with respect to investments, leverage, financing, growth, debt and capitalization, will be determined by our Board of Directors or officers to whom our Board of Directors delegate such authority. Our Board of Directors will also establish the amount of any dividends or other distributions that we may pay to our shareholders. Our Board of Directors or officers to which such decisions are delegated will have the ability to amend or revise these and our other policies at any time without shareholder vote. Accordingly, our shareholders will not be entitled to approve changes in our policies, which policy changes may have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.

We are subject to the risks frequently experienced by smaller reporting companies. The likelihood of our success must be considered in light of the risks frequently encountered by smaller reporting companies. These risks include our potential inability to:

 

 

-

Establish product sales and marketing capabilities.

 

 

 

 

-

Identify, attract, retain, and motivate qualified personnel.

 

 

 

 

-

Maintain our reputation and build trust with consumers.

 

 

 

 

-

Attract sufficient capital resources to develop our business.

 

Our company has a limited history with respect to its newly established sports and music memorabilia business structure, as well as its platform tv and movie business. As our company moves forward with its sports and music memorabilia-related business operations, as well as the Maybacks tv and movie platform, we will be subject to risks and difficulties frequently encountered by early-stage business enterprises, such as our company.

 

Unanticipated problems, expenses and delays are frequently encountered in establishing a new business, along with developing new products and services. We may not be successful in addressing some or all of those risks, in which case there could be a material negative effect on our business and the value of our common stock that could also cause our company to reduce, curtail or cease operations. Our company may never become profitable if revenue is lower and operating expenses are higher than anticipated.

 

Risks Related to Our Organization and Structure

 

Our holding company structure makes us dependent on our subsidiaries for our cash flow and could serve to subordinate the rights of our shareholders to the rights of creditors of our subsidiaries, in the event of an insolvency or liquidation of any such subsidiary. Our company acts as a holding company and, accordingly, substantially all of our operations are conducted through our subsidiaries. Such subsidiaries will be separate and distinct legal entities. As a result, substantially all of our cash flow will depend upon the earnings of our subsidiaries. In addition, we will depend on the distribution of earnings, loans or other payments by our subsidiaries. No subsidiary will have any obligation to provide our company with funds for our payment obligations. If there is an insolvency, liquidation or other reorganization of any of our subsidiaries, our shareholders will have no right to proceed against their assets. Creditors of those subsidiaries will be entitled to payment in full from the sale or other disposal of the assets of those subsidiaries before our company, as a shareholder, would be entitled to receive any distribution from that sale or disposal.

 

Risks Related Our Securities

 

The outstanding shares of our Class B Convertible Preferred Stock preclude current and future owners of our common stock from influencing any corporate decision. Our President, Christopher Giordano, and our CEO, Paul Serbiak, own all of the 400,000 outstanding shares of our Class B Convertible Preferred Stock. The Class B Convertible Preferred Stock has the following voting rights: each share of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock votes together with our common stock as a single class and is entitled to 10,000 votes per share. Mr. Giordano and Mr. Serbiak will, therefore, be able to control the management and affairs of our company, as well as matters requiring the approval by our shareholders, including the election of directors, any merger, consolidation or sale of all or substantially all of our assets, and any other significant corporate transaction. (See “Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management”).

 

We have established preferred stock, which our Board of Directors can designate and issue without shareholder approval. We have outstanding 600,000 shares of preferred stock, with 400,000 shares as Class B Convertible Preferred Stock, 100,000 shares as Class C Preferred Stock and 100,000 shares as Class D Preferred stock.  We have remaining 400,000 shares of preferred stock authorized but undesignated. These shares of undesignated preferred stock may be issued by our Board of Directors from time to time, in one or more series, each series of which shall have such voting powers, full or limited, or no voting powers, and such preferences and relative, participating, optional or other special rights and such qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof as adopted by our Board of Directors. Our Board of Directors is able to designate the powers and preferences of any such series of preferred stock without shareholder approval.

We have approximately $1,388,536 in currently convertible debt instruments, the existence and/or conversion of which could cause a reduction in the market price for our common stock. As of the date of this Annual Report, we have approximately $1,388,536 in currently convertible debt instruments, the conversion terms of which require share issuances at below-market prices. All such shares constitute an overhang on the market for our common stock and, if and when issued, will be issued without transfer restrictions, pursuant to certain exemptions from registration, and could reduce prevailing market prices for our common stock. Also, in the future, we may also issue securities in connection with our obtaining needed capital or an acquisition transaction. The amount of shares of our common stock issued in connection with any such transaction could constitute a material portion of our then-outstanding shares of common stock.

 

Our failure to reserve sufficient shares of common stock could be considered an event of default. We have existing convertible promissory notes with a covenant to reserve sufficient shares of common stock with our transfer agent for the potential conversion of these securities. As of the date of this Annual Report, the calculated shares issuable under the assumed conversion of the promissory notes is greater than the amount of shares that we have reserved with respect to such convertible promissory notes. As a result, the holders of such convertible promissory notes could declare an event of default and the principal and accrued interest would become immediately due and payable. Additionally, the holders of such convertible promissory notes have additional remedies, including penalties against our company.

 

We may seek capital that may result in shareholder dilution or that may have rights senior to those of our common stock. From time to time, we may seek to obtain additional capital, either through equity, equity-linked or debt securities. The decision to obtain additional capital will depend on, among other factors, our business plans, operating performance and condition of the capital markets. If we raise additional funds through the issuance of equity, equity-linked or debt securities, those securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to the rights of our common stock, which could negatively affect the market price of our common stock or cause our shareholders to experience dilution.

 

Shares eligible for future sale may adversely affect the market. From time to time, certain of our shareholders may be eligible to sell all or some of their shares of common stock by means of ordinary brokerage transactions in the open market pursuant to Rule 144, promulgated under the Securities Act, subject to certain limitations. In general, a non-affiliate stockholder who has satisfied a six-month holding period may, under certain circumstances, sell its shares, without limitation. Any substantial sale of the our common stock pursuant to Rule 144, pursuant to any resale prospectus may have a material adverse effect on the market price of our common stock.

 

We do not intend to pay dividends on our common stock. We intend to retain earnings, if any, to provide funds for the implementation of our business strategy. We do not intend to declare or pay any dividends in the foreseeable future. Therefore, there can be no assurance that holders of our common stock will receive cash, stock or other dividends on their shares of our common stock, until we have funds which our Board of Directors determines can be allocated to dividends.

 

Our common stock has been, and may in the future be, a “Penny Stock” and subject to specific rules governing its sale to investors. The SEC has adopted Rule 15g-9 which establishes the definition of a “penny stock,” for the purposes relevant to our Common Stock, as any equity security that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share or with an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. For any transaction involving a penny stock, unless exempt, the rules require that a broker or dealer approve a person’s account for transactions in penny stocks; and the broker or dealer receive from the investor a written agreement to the transaction, setting forth the identity and quantity of the penny stock to be purchased.

 

In order to approve a person’s account for transactions in penny stocks, the broker or dealer must obtain financial information and investment experience objectives of the person; and make a reasonable determination that the transactions in penny stocks are suitable for that person and the person has sufficient knowledge and experience in financial matters to be capable of evaluating the risks of transactions in penny stocks.

 

 
14

Table of Contents

 

The broker or dealer must also deliver, prior to any transaction in a penny stock, a disclosure schedule prescribed by the SEC relating to the penny stock market, which, in highlight form sets forth the basis on which the broker or dealer made the suitability determination; and that the broker or dealer received a signed, written agreement from the investor prior to the transaction.

 

Generally, brokers may be less willing to execute transactions in securities subject to the “penny stock” rules. This may make it more difficult for investors sell shares of our common stock.

 

Disclosure also has to be made about the risks of investing in penny stocks in both public offerings and in secondary trading and about the commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative, current quotations for the securities and the rights and remedies available to an investor in cases of fraud in penny stock transactions. Finally, monthly statements have to be sent disclosing recent price information for the penny stock held in the account and information on the limited market in penny stocks.

 

There is limited trading activity in our common stock and there is no assurance that an active market will develop in the future. Although our common stock is currently quoted on the OTC Pink marketplace of OTC Link (an interdealer electronic quotation system operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc.) under the symbol “AHRO”, trading of our common stock may be extremely sporadic. For example, several days may pass before any shares may be traded. As a result, an investor may find it difficult to dispose of, or to obtain accurate quotations of the price of our common stock. There can be no assurance that a more active market for our common stock will develop, or if one should develop, there is no assurance that it will be sustained. This severely limits the liquidity of our common stock, and would likely have a material adverse effect on the market price of our common stock and on our ability to raise additional capital.

 

The market for our common stock may be volatile; you could lose all or part of your investment in company. The market price of our common stock may fluctuate substantially and will depend on a number of factors many of which are beyond our control and may not be related to our operating performance. These fluctuations could cause you to lose all or part of your investment in the company, since you might be unable to sell your securities at or above the price you pay for shares. Factors that could cause fluctuations in the market price of our common stock include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

 

-

price and volume fluctuations in the overall stock market from time to time;

 

 

 

 

-

volatility in the market prices and trading volumes of sports and music memorabilia stocks;

 

 

 

 

-

changes in operating performance and stock market valuations of other sports and music memorabilia-related companies generally, or those in our industry, in particular;

 

 

 

 

-

sales of shares of our common stock by us or our shareholders;

 

 

 

 

-

failure of securities analysts to maintain coverage of us, changes in financial estimates by securities analysts who follow our company, or our failure to meet these estimates or the expectations of investors;

 

 

 

 

-

the financial projections we may provide to the public, any changes in those projections or our failure to meet those projections;

 

 

 

 

-

announcements by us or our competitors of new products or services;

 

 

 

 

-

the public’s reaction to our press releases, other public announcements and filings with the SEC;

 

 

 

 

-

rumors and market speculation involving us or other companies in our industry;

 

 

 

 

-

actual or anticipated changes in our operating results or fluctuations in our operating results;

 

 

 

 

-

actual or anticipated developments in our business, our competitors’ businesses or the competitive landscape generally;

 

 

 

 

-

litigation involving us and/or our industry, or investigations by regulators into our operations or those of our competitors;

 
15

Table of Contents

 

 

-

developments or disputes concerning our intellectual property or other proprietary rights;

 

 

 

 

-

announced or completed acquisitions of businesses or technologies by us or our competitors;

 

 

 

 

-

new laws or regulations or new interpretations of existing laws or regulations applicable to our business;

 

 

 

 

-

changes in accounting standards, policies, guidelines, interpretations or principles;

 

 

 

 

-

any significant change in our management; and

 

 

 

 

-

general economic conditions and slow or negative growth of our markets.

 

In addition, in the past, following periods of volatility in the overall market and the market price of a particular company’s securities, securities class action litigation has often been instituted against these companies. This litigation, if instituted against us, could result in substantial costs and a diversion of our management’s attention and resources.

 

Compliance with the reporting requirements of federal securities laws can be expensive. We are a public reporting company in the United States, and accordingly, subject to the information and reporting requirements of the Exchange Act and other federal securities laws, and the compliance obligations of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. The costs of preparing and filing annual and quarterly reports and other required information with the SEC, furnishing audited reports to shareholders and preparing any registration statements from time to time, if any, are substantial.

 

Applicable regulatory requirements, including those contained in and issued under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, may make it difficult for us to retain or attract qualified officers and directors, which could adversely affect the management of our business and our ability to obtain or retain listing of our common stock. We may be unable to attract and retain those qualified officers, directors and members of board committees required to provide for effective management because of the rules and regulations that govern publicly held companies, including, but not limited to, certifications by principal executive officers. The enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act has resulted in the issuance of a series of related rules and regulations and the strengthening of existing rules and regulations by the SEC, as well as the adoption of new and more stringent rules by the stock exchanges. The perceived increased personal risk associated with these changes may deter qualified individuals from accepting roles as directors and executive officers.

 

Further, some of these changes heighten the requirements for board or committee membership, particularly with respect to an individual’s independence from the corporation and level of experience in finance and accounting matters. While certain board and committee requirements may not apply to us as an OTC listed company, we intend to explore voluntarily complying with some of these requirements. We may have difficulty attracting and retaining directors with the requisite qualifications. If we are unable to attract and retain qualified officers and directors, the management of our business and our ability to obtain or retain listing of our shares of common stock on any stock exchange (assuming we elect to seek and are successful in obtaining such listing) could be adversely affected.

 

If we fail to maintain an effective system of internal controls, we may not be able to accurately report our financial results or detect fraud, and, consequently, investors could lose confidence in our financial reporting and this may decrease the trading price of our common stock. We must maintain effective internal controls to provide reliable financial reports and detect fraud. We have been assessing our internal controls to identify areas that need improvement. We are in the process of implementing changes to internal controls, but have not yet completed implementing these changes. Failure to implement these changes to our internal controls or any others that it identifies as necessary to maintain an effective system of internal controls could harm our operating results and cause investors to lose confidence in our reported financial information. Any such loss of confidence would have a negative effect on the trading price of our stock.

 

 
16

Table of Contents

 

A material weakness in internal controls may remain undetected for a longer period, because of our exemption from the auditor attestation requirements under Section 404(b) of Sarbanes-Oxley. Our Annual Report on Form 10-K does not include an attestation report of our independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Our management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm, pursuant to rules of the SEC that permit us to provide only management’s attestation with respect thereto. As a result, any material weakness in our internal controls may remain undetected for a longer period.

 

Our Articles of Incorporation allows for our board to create new series of preferred stock without further approval by our shareholders, which could adversely affect the rights of the holders of our common stock, including purchasers of the Offered Shares. Our board of directors has the authority to issue shares of our preferred stock, with such relative rights and preferences as the board of directors may determine, without further shareholder approval. As a result, our board of directors could authorize the issuance of a series of preferred stock that would grant to holders the preferred right to our assets upon liquidation and the right to receive dividend payments before dividends are distributed to the holders of our common stock. In addition, our board of directors could authorize the issuance of a series of preferred stock that has greater voting power than our common stock or that is convertible into our common stock, which could decrease the relative voting power of our common stock or result in dilution to our existing shareholders.

 

Future issuances of debt securities and equity securities could negatively affect the market price of shares of our common stock and, in the case of equity securities, may be dilutive to existing shareholders. In the future, we may issue debt or equity securities or incur other financial obligations, including stock dividends. Upon liquidation, it is possible that holders of our debt securities and other loans and preferred stock would receive a distribution of our available assets before common shareholders. We are not required to offer any such additional debt or equity securities to existing shareholders on a preemptive basis. Therefore, additional common stock issuances, directly or through convertible or exchangeable securities, warrants or options, would dilute the holdings of our existing common shareholders and such issuances, or the perception of such issuances, could reduce the market price of shares of our common stock.

 

As an issuer of penny stock, the protection provided by the federal securities laws relating to forward-looking statements does not apply to us. Although federal securities laws provide a safe harbor for forward-looking statements made by a public company that files reports under the federal securities laws, this safe harbor is not available to issuers of penny stocks. As a result, we will not have the benefit of this safe harbor protection, in the event of any legal action based upon a claim that the material provided by us contained a material misstatement of fact or was misleading in any material respect because of our failure to include any statements necessary to make the statements not misleading. Such an action could hurt our financial condition.

 

Item 1B. Unresolved Staff Comments

 

As a “smaller reporting company”, we are not required to provide the information required by this Item.

 

Item 1C. Cybersecurity

 

We rely on our information technology to operate our business. As such, we have policies and processes designed to protect our information technology systems, some of which are managed by third parties, and resolve issues in a timely manner in the event of a cybersecurity threat or incident.

 

We have designed our business applications and hosting services to minimize the impact that cybersecurity incidents could have on our business and have identified back-up systems where appropriate. We seek to further mitigate cybersecurity risks through a combination of monitoring and detection activities, use of anti-malware applications, employee training, quality audits and communication and reporting structures, among other processes. We engage a third-party consultant to assist us with our cybersecurity risk management framework, including the monitoring and detection of cybersecurity threats and responding to any cybersecurity threats or incidents. Our third-party consultant team is managed by our Chief Executive Officer who reports to the board of directors.

Table of Contents

 

As of December 31, 2023, we have not identified an indication of a cybersecurity incident that would have a material impact on our business and consolidated financial statements.

 

Item 2. Properties

 

Our principal business and corporate address is 50 Division Street Suite 501 Somerset NJ 08876.  Our telephone number is (732) 695-4389. Our facilities are leased on a month-to-month basis at a price of $5,280 per month.

 

Item 3. Legal Proceedings

 

From time to time, we may become involved in litigation relating to claims arising out of our operations in the normal course of business. As of the date of the filing of this Annual Report, our company is party to three pending litigation matters.

 

One matter is entitled Randazzo LLC v. Avani Holdings LLC & Global Fashion Technologies, Inc. This litigation was initiated by the plaintiff in order to evict Avani Holdings LLC from its rented premises in California and to recover unpaid rent. The company does not operate out of the premises in question and has never signed any leases or other documents with the plaintiff. A judgment of eviction was entered, but the company does not operate out of the premises in question and therefore did not appear in the matter to oppose the judgment of eviction. The plaintiff is also seeking unpaid rent in the amount of $26,595.

 

The second matter is entitled Patricia Witthuhn v. Global Fashion Technologies, Inc. This litigation was initiated by the plaintiff in order to collect wages allegedly due pursuant to her employment with Avani Holdings LLC. The Company never hired Ms. Witthuhn and never acquired Avani Holdings, LLC. Consequently, there is no legitimate cause of action against the Company. However, due to cash flow constraints, the Company is unable to hire outside counsel for this litigation. The amount being sought by the plaintiff is approximately $15,000.

 

The third matter is entitled William Corso v. Global Fashion Technologies, Inc. This litigation was initiated by the plaintiff in order to collect wages allegedly due pursuant to his employment with Avani Holdings LLC. The Company never hired Mr. Corso and never acquired Avani Holdings, LLC. Consequently, there is no legitimate cause of action against the Company. However, due to cash flow constraints, the Company is unable to hire outside counsel for this litigation. The amount being sought by the plaintiff is approximately $40,000. 

 

Item 4. Mine Safety Disclosures

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 5. Market for Registrant’s Common Equity, Related Stockholder Matters and Issuer Purchases of Equity Securities

Item7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our consolidated audited financial statements and the related notes that appear elsewhere in this Annual Report. The following discussion contains forward-looking statements that reflect our plans, estimates and beliefs. Our actual results could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include but are not limited to those discussed below and elsewhere in this Annual Report.

 

Our consolidated audited financial statements are stated in United States Dollars and are prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

 

Results of Operations for the Years Ended December 31, 2023 and 2022.

 

Revenue

 

We did not earn revenues during the years ended December 31, 2023 or 2022. We expect that the Company will earn revenue in future quarters as Maybacks continues to enter into agreements to expand the markets for its movie and TV programming and agreements for advertising spots. We also hope to achieve revenues from our plan to “tokenize” all the titles, namely 14,000 plus full-length motion pictures and serial television shows, from the license with Goliath for content distribution on the Maybacks network.

 

We also expect that the Company will earn  revenue in future quarters as we are currently re-building a more fortified, secure, and user-friendly platform for storing and claiming our future NFTs. We are also building a landing platform on top of our current NFT platform, which will be industry-first. This platform’s purpose is to help NFT investors recapture the losses incurred on certain types of projects. In the process, it should create substantial opportunities for us and give us tremendous credibility in the Blockchain and NFT community. We expect to announce the completion of that project in late June and potentially launch it in late August of 2024.

 

We will also start work shortly on a project which will have its roots in the music industry that will include many artists and will be a game-driven project with prizes awarded at the end of each contest period, which could include free concert tickets, backstage passes, airfare to and from the concert. The future looks bright for our NFT platform, and we fully expect it to become an integral part of our company.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Operating expenses increased from $415,048 for the year ended December 31, 2022, to $641,968 for the year ended December 31, 2023. Overall, this decrease results from a decline in depreciation and amortization, offset by expenses in our efforts to acquire Maybacks and the license of Goliath, and to build out our organization to establish a strong base for current and future growth. The detail of expenditures by major category is reflected in the table below.

Depreciation and amortization increased by $209,409 for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to the year ended in 2022, primarily due to the amortization of the customer list related to the Maybacks acquisition and the license agreement executed with Goliath.

 

Professional and legal fees increased by $36,090 for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to the year ended in 2022, primarily due to $11,648 in other consulting fees.

 

Research and development increased by $8,457, for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to the year ended in 2022, primarily due to the development of blockchain built put and NFT platform service product lines during the first quarter of 2023.

 

Other Income (Expenses)

 

Other expenses were $997,545 for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to $742,735 for the year ended in 2022, primarily as a result of interest expense of $344,443, the loss on debt conversion of $452,472, derivative expense of $239,028, offset by the a loss in the valuation of derivative liabilities of $24,567 and the gain on the settlement of license agreements of $125,000.

 

Net Loss

 

We recorded a net loss of $1,658,455 for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to a  net loss of $1,157,783 the year ended in 2022. 

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Since our inception, we have financed our operations through private placements and convertible notes. Based upon the current financial condition, we do not have sufficient cash to operate our business at the current level for the next twelve months. We intend to fund operations through increased sales and debt and/or equity financing arrangements, which may be insufficient to fund expenditures or other cash requirements. We plan to seek additional financing in a private equity offering to secure funding for operations. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in raising additional funding. If we are not able to secure additional funding, the implementation of our business plan will be impaired. There can be no assurance that such additional financing will be available to us on acceptable terms or at all.

Going Concern

 

The financial statements have been prepared assuming we will continue as a going concern. We have incurred losses since inception, resulting in accumulated deficits of $38,038,768 and $36,380,313 at December 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively, a working capital deficit of $4,998,581 and $4,603,481 as of December 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively, and future losses are anticipated. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The ability of our company to continue our operations as a going concern is dependent on management’s plans, which include the raising of capital through debt and/or equity markets with some additional funding from other traditional financing sources, including term notes, until such time that funds provided by operations are sufficient to fund working capital requirements.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. These financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recovery of the recorded assets or the classification of the liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern.

Limited Operating History; Need for Additional Capital

 

There is no historical financial information about us upon which to base an evaluation of our performance. We are a development stage company and have only recently generated revenues from operations. We cannot guarantee we will be successful in our business operations. Our business is subject to risks inherent in the establishment of a new business enterprise, including limited capital resources and competition from larger organizations. We will require equity and/or debt financing to provide for the capital required to implement our plans. We will require additional funds to operate for the next year.

 

We have no assurance that future financing will be available to us on acceptable terms. If financing is not available on satisfactory terms, we may be unable to continue, develop or expand our operations

 

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 that are material to stockholders.

 

Critical Accounting Policies 

 

We prepare our consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP, which requires management to make specific estimates and assumptions and apply judgments. We base our estimates and decisions on historical experience, current trends, and other factors that management believes are important when preparing financial statements. The actual results could differ from our estimates, and such differences could be material. Due to the need to estimate the effect of inherently uncertain matters, materially different amounts could be reported under other conditions or using different assumptions. We regularly review our critical accounting policies and how they are applied in preparing our financial statements.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include all the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary, Maybacks Global Entertainment . All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

Advances

 

Advances are amounts provided to Inventel Products LLC for the production of vinyl records, to be sold through the Company’s joint venture.

 

Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost. Costs of replacements and major improvements are capitalized, and maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred. Depreciation expense is provided primarily by the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets.

 

The long-lived assets of the Company are reviewed for impairment under ASC 360, “Property, Plant and Equipment” (“ASC 360”), whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. The recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by comparing the carrying amount of an asset to the future undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the assets. If such assets are impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. During the year ended December 31, 2023, and 2022, no impairment losses have been identified.

 

Intangible Assets

 

The Company accounts for intangible assets (including trademarks, website and license agreements) under ASC 350 “Intangibles-Goodwill and Other” (“ASC 350”). ASC 350 requires that goodwill and other intangibles with indefinite lives be tested for impairment annually or on an interim basis if events or circumstances indicate that the fair value of an asset has decreased below its carrying value. In addition, ASC 350 requires that goodwill be tested for impairment at the reporting unit level (operating segment or one level below an operating segment) on an annual basis and between annual tests when circumstances indicate the recoverability of the carrying amount of goodwill may be in doubt. Application of the goodwill impairment test requires judgment, including identifying reporting units, assigning assets and liabilities to reporting units, assigning goodwill to reporting units, and determining the fair value. Significant judgments required to estimate the fair value of reporting units include assessing future cash flows and determining appropriate discount rates and other assumptions. Changes in these estimates and assumptions or the occurrence of one or more confirming events in future periods could cause the actual results or outcomes to differ from such estimates materially and affect the determination of fair value and goodwill impairment at future reporting dates.

 

 
23

Table of Contents

 

The cost of intangible assets with determinable useful lives is amortized to reflect the pattern of economic benefits consumed on a straight-line or accelerated basis over the estimated periods benefited. Patents, technology, and other intangibles with contractual terms are generally amortized over their respective legal or contractual lives. When certain events or changes in operating conditions occur, an impairment assessment is performed, and lives of intangible assets with determinable lives may be adjusted.

 

We amortize the cost of our intangible assets over the 5 to 15-year estimated useful life on a straight-line basis.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method stipulated by ASC 740 “Income Taxes.” Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities, their respective tax bases and operating loss, and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Under ASC 740, the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities or a change in tax rate is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Deferred tax assets are reduced to estimated amounts to be realized using a valuation allowance. A valuation allowance is applied when in management’s view, it is more likely than not that such deferred tax asset will be unable to be utilized.

 

The Company adopted specific provisions under ASC Topic 740, which provide interpretative guidance for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. Effective with the Company’s adoption of these provisions, interest related to the unrecognized tax benefits is recognized in the financial statements as a component of income taxes.

 

The Company’s tax returns are subject to examination by the federal and state tax authorities for the years ended 2017 through 2021. In the unlikely event that an uncertain tax position exists in which the Company could incur income taxes, the Company would evaluate whether there is a probability that the uncertain tax position taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities. Reserves for uncertain tax positions would be recorded if the Company determined it is probable that a position would not be sustained upon examination or if payment would have to be made to a taxing authority and the amount is reasonably estimated. As of December 31, 2023, and 2022, the Company does not believe it has any uncertain tax positions that would result in the Company having a liability to the taxing authorities.

 

Research and Development Expenses

 

Expenditures for research and development are expensed as incurred. Research and development expenses consists of expenses paid to outside contractors related to the development of the Company’s NFT platform.

 

Fair Value

 

FASB ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820”) establishes a framework for all fair value measurements and expands disclosures related to fair value measurement and developments. ASC 820 defines fair value as the price received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.

 

ASC 820 requires that assets and liabilities measured at fair value are classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:

Evaluation Of Disclosure Controls And Procedures

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer (our chief executive officer), we have conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded as of the evaluation date that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective such that the material information required to be included in our Securities and Exchange Commission reports is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and financial officer, recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms relating to our company, particularly during the period when this report was being prepared.

 

Management’s Annual Report On Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, for our company.

 

Internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that: (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of its management and directors; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Management recognizes that there are inherent limitations in the effectiveness of any system of internal control, and accordingly, even effective internal control can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and may not prevent or detect material misstatements. In addition, effective internal control at a point in time may become ineffective in future periods because of changes in conditions or due to deterioration in the degree of compliance with our established policies and procedures.

 

A material weakness is a significant deficiency, or combination of significant deficiencies, that results in there being a more than remote likelihood that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected.

Table of Contents

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our president and our chief executive officer, management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting, as of December 31, 2023, based on the framework set forth in Internal Control – Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). Based on our evaluation under this framework, management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of the evaluation date due to the factors stated below.

 

Management assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of evaluation date and identified the following material weaknesses:

 

Insufficient Resources: We have an inadequate number of personnel with requisite expertise in the key functional areas of finance and accounting.

 

Inadequate Segregation Of Duties: We have an inadequate number of personnel to properly implement control procedures.

 

Lack Of Audit Committee: We do not have a functioning audit committee resulting in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures.

 

Management is committed to improving its internal controls and will (1) continue to use third party specialists to address shortfalls in staffing and to assist the Company with accounting and finance responsibilities, (2) increase the frequency of independent reconciliations of significant accounts which will mitigate the lack of segregation of duties until there are sufficient personnel and (3) may consider appointing an audit committee member in the future.

 

Management, including our president and our chief executive officer, have discussed the material weakness noted above with our independent registered public accounting firm. Due to the nature of this material weakness, there is a more than remote likelihood that misstatements which could be material to the annual or interim financial statements could occur that would not be prevented or detected.

 

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

 

Changes In Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the last fiscal quarter for our fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Specifically, the base salary for Mr. Serbiak shall initially be set at $90,000 per year but has the potential to incrementally increase up to $200,000 per year based on the Company achieving certain revenue goals. Moreover, Mr. Serbiak’s contract provides for a minimum annual bonus of thirty-percent (30%) of his base salary, but gives the Company the discretion to award an annual bonus of up to three-hundred-percent (300%) of his base salary. As a signing bonus, Mr. Serbiak received 1,500,000 options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock that are exercisable for a period of ten years at the market close price on December 31, 2016. In addition, Mr. Serbiak’s contract provides for up to ten incentive stock option awards of 1% of the shares of common stock outstanding $1,000,000 in net income received by the Company over the next ten years. Such options would be exercisable at the closing bid price for the ten days preceding the Company’s achievement of each award milestone.

 

On February 14, 2017, we entered into an employment agreement with Christopher Giordano, our President, wherein Mr. Giordano will begin to earn a salary upon our company receiving funding from a potential private placement, while also being granted both vested and incentive-based stock options. Specifically, his salary shall not be earned or payable until such time that the Company raises at least $2,000,000 in a private placement. The base salary for Mr. Giordano shall initially be set at $90,000 per year but has the potential to incrementally increase up to $200,000 per year based on the Company achieving certain revenue goals. Moreover, Mr. Giordano’s contract provides for a minimum annual bonus of thirty-percent (30%) of his base salary, but gives the Company the discretion to award an annual bonus of up to two-hundred-percent(200%) of his base salary. As a signing bonus, Mr. Giordano received 250,000 options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock that are exercisable for a period of five years at a strike price of $0.50 per share. In addition, Mr. Giordano’s contract provides for up to ten incentive stock option awards of 0.75% of the shares of common stock outstanding per $1,000,000 in net income received by the Company over the next ten years. Such options would be exercisable at the closing bid price for the ten days preceding the Company’s achievement of each award milestone.

Code of Ethics

 

We have adopted a Code of Ethics that applies to our principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer or controller, and persons performing similar functions. Our Code of Ethics is designed to deter wrongdoing and promote: (i) honest and ethical conduct, including the ethical handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and professional relationships; (ii) full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that we file with, or submit to, the SEC and in our other public communications; (iii) compliance with applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations; (iv) the prompt internal reporting of violations of our Code of Ethics to an appropriate person or persons identified in the code; and (v) accountability for adherence to our Code of Ethics.

Board and Committee Meetings

 

Our board of directors held no formal meetings during the year ended December 31, 2023. All proceedings of the board of directors were conducted by resolutions consented to in writing by all the directors and filed with the minutes of the proceedings of the directors. Such resolutions consented to in writing by the directors entitled to vote on that resolution at a meeting of the directors are, according to the Nevada General Corporate Law and our Bylaws, as valid and effective as if they had been passed at a meeting of the directors duly called and held.

 

Nomination Process

 

As of December 31, 2023, we did not effect any material changes to the procedures by which our shareholders may recommend nominees to our board of directors. Our board of directors does not have a policy with regards to the consideration of any director candidates recommended by our shareholders. Our board of directors has determined that it is in the best position to evaluate our company’s requirements as well as the qualifications of each candidate when the board considers a nominee for a position on our board of directors. If shareholders wish to recommend candidates directly to our board, they may do so by sending communications to the president of our company at the address on the cover of this annual report.

 

Audit Committee

 

Currently our audit committee consists of our entire board of directors. We do not have a standing audit committee as we currently have limited working capital and minimal revenues. Should we be able to raise sufficient funding to execute our business plan, we will form an audit, compensation committee and other applicable committees utilizing our directors’ expertise.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Shareholders and Board of Directors,

Authentic Holdings, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Authentic Holdings, Inc., and its subsidiaries (collectively referred to as “the Company”) as of December 31, 2023, December 31, 2022, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for the two years then ended December 31, 2023, 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, 2023, December 31, 2022, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the two years then ended, are in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Substantial Doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1, Going Concern to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring operating losses, had a working capital deficit of $4,998,581, as of December 31, 2023, an accumulated deficit of $38,038,768, and $36,380,313 as of December 31, 2023, and December 31, 2022. These factors raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. Our opinion is not modified with respect to this matter.

 

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.

Critical Audit Matters

 

The critical audit matters communicated below are matters arising from the current period audit of the financial statements that were communicated or required to be communicated to the audit committee equivalent and that: (1) relate to accounts or disclosures that are material to the financial statements and (2) involved our especially challenging, subjective, or complex judgments. The communication of critical audit matters does not alter in any way our opinion on the financial statements, taken as a whole, and we are not, by communicating the critical audit matters below, providing separate opinions on the critical audit matters or on the accounts or disclosures to which they relate.

 

Derivative liabilities

 

As described in Note 5, Derivative Liabilities, to the consolidated financial statements, the Company had convertible note payable that required accounting considerations and significant estimates.

 

The Company determined that variable conversion features issued in connection with certain convertible debentures required derivative liability classification. These variable conversion features were initially measured at fair value and subsequently have been remeasured to fair value at each reporting period. The Company determined the fair value of the embedded derivatives using the Binomial option pricing model. The value of the embedded derivative liabilities related to the convertible notes’ payable was $1,633,052 as of December 31, 2023.

 

We identified the accounting considerations and related valuations, including the related fair value determinations of the embedded derivative liabilities of such as a critical audit matter. The principal considerations for our determination were: (1) the accounting consideration in determining the nature of the various features (2) the evaluation of the potential derivatives and potential bifurcation in the instruments, and (3) considerations related to the determination of the fair value of the various debt and equity instruments and the conversion features that include valuation models and assumptions utilized by management. An audit of these elements is especially challenging and requires auditor judgement due to the nature and extent of audit effort required to address these matters, including the extent of specialized skill or knowledge needed.

 

Our audit procedures related to management’s conclusion on the evaluation and related valuation of embedded derivatives, included the following, among others: (1) evaluating the relevant terms and conditions of the various financings, and (2) assessing the reasonableness of the judgments made by the Company with respect to the accounting for the convertible debt, and the assessment and accounting for potential derivatives.

 

Intangible Assets

 

As described in Note 6, Acquisitions, to the consolidated financial statements, the Company entered into separate transactions to acquire a Company and complete license agreement with another company. Both companies in the transactions with Authentic Holdings, Inc. are owned by the same individual. The Company considered both transactions inseparable, therefore effectively one transaction and recorded intangible assets based on value of the preferred stock (if converted) issued as purchase consideration on the transaction date. The value of the intangible assets, net of amortization was $4,771,322 as of December 31, 2023.

 

We identified the accounting considerations and related valuations, including the related fair value determinations of the intangible assets as a critical audit matter. The principal considerations for our determination were: (1) determining the valuation method (2) subjective and uncertain nature of the valuation models as it relies on assumptions and forecasts, (3) determining the measuring the amount of economic benefit, and (4) the determination of the asset's useful life. An audit of these elements is especially challenging and requires auditor judgement due to the nature and extent of audit effort required to address these matters, including the extent of specialized skill or knowledge needed.

 

Our audit procedures related to management’s conclusion on the valuation of the intangible assets, included the following, among others: (1) assessing the appropriateness of the income valuation model, (2) Discussed with management the underlying data included in the assumptions and income forecasts, and (3) assessing the reasonableness of the judgments made by the Company.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2023 AND 2022

 

NOTE 1 – DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND GOING CONCERN

 

Authentic Holdings Inc., formerly Global Fiber Technologies, Inc. ("the Company"), was incorporated in Nevada on September 29, 2003.

 

Originally formed as a publishing company, the Company ceased its publishing operations in or around 2007.  After ceasing the publishing operations, the Company's operations consisted solely of utilizing the expertise of its board Members and outside agents to further the efforts of its advisory services business plan.  In 2011 the Company changed its’ name to Premiere Opportunities Group, Inc.

 

In 2013, the Company became involved in the manufacturing and global distribution of ladies’ apparel, which was discontinued in 2014.  In 2014, the Company changed its’ name to Global Fashion Technologies, Inc. 

 

In 2017, the Company changed its’ name to Eco Tek 360, Inc.  In 2018, the Company began a venture for the purpose of operating as an intermediary providing an expedited trading platform for buyers and sellers to efficiently consummate fiber transactions.  This venture has had no operations to date nor did it have assets or liabilities.

 

In 2019, the Company changed its’ name of to Global Fiber Technologies, Inc.

 

On June 18, 2019, the Company completed its acquisition of assets from A.H. Originals, Inc. ("AHO"), a corporation controlled by the same owner group of Global Fiber Technologies, Inc.  The Company created a new subsidiary, Authentic Heroes, Inc. ("AHI"), to hold the purchased assets. AHI has commenced minimal operations to date.

 

On March 30, 2022, the Company formed a joint venture with Inventel Products LLC and Maestro Entertainment Corp. in order to produce and sell limited addition vinyl records.  The joint venture has no operations to date.

 

On July 26, 2022, the Company filed articles of Merger with the Secretary of State of Nevada to effectuate a merger with its wholly-owned subsidiary, Authentic Holdings, Inc. Shareholder approval was optional under Section 92A.180 of the Nevada Revised Statutes. As part of the merger, the Company’s board of directors authorized a change in our name to “Authentic Holdings, Inc.” The Company’s Articles of Incorporation was amended to reflect this name change.

 

On April 26, 2023, the Company entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement with Maybacks Global Entertainment LLC, an Arizona limited liability company (“Maybacks”), and the members of Maybacks.  As a result of the transaction, Maybacks became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

 

On June 20, 2023, the Company, closed License Agreement with Goliath Motion Picture Promotions, where the Company acquired the licensing rights various full-length motion pictures and serial television shows for a period of 10 years. The Company plans to “tokenize” all the titles, namely 14,000 plus full-length motion pictures and serial television shows. The Company is currently using the non-tokenized library for content distribution on its own TV Network known as Maybacks Global Entertainment.

 

The Company has developed an non-fungible token (“NFT”) platform to hold 80 million music NFTs. The Company plans on utilizing this platform across its’ business lines. The Company is also in the process of re-building a more fortified, secure, and user-friendly platform for storing and claiming future NFTs, as well as building a landing platform on top of our current NFT platform which will be an industry first. This platform's purpose is to help NFT investors recapture the losses incurred on certain types of projects. The Company will also start work on a project which will have its roots in the music industry that will include many artists and will be a game driven project with prizes awarded at the end of each contest period which could include free concert tickets, back-stage passes, airfare to and from the concert.

Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared following U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, which contemplate the continuation of the Company as a going concern. The Company has an accumulated deficit of  $38,038,768 and $36,380,313 as of December 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively, which includes net losses of $1,658,455 and $1,157,783 and net working capital deficits of $4,998,581 and $4,603,481, with limited cash resources. Consequently, the items mentioned above raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued. Management plans to raise additional debt or equity and continue to settle obligations by issuing stock. Management intends to continue to grow other debt and equity until the Company has positive cash flows from an operating company.

 

The Company's ability to continue as a going concern depends on its ability to repay or settle its current indebtedness, generate positive cash flow from an operating company, and raise capital through equity and debt financing or other means on desirable terms. If the Company cannot obtain additional funds when required or if the funds cannot be received on favorable terms, management may be necessary to restructure the Company or cease operations. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The Company's consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America and are presented in U.S. dollars. The Company uses the accrual basis of accounting and has adopted a December 31 fiscal year-end.

The long-lived assets of the Company are reviewed for impairment under ASC 360, “Property, Plant and Equipment” (“ASC 360”), whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. The recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by comparing the carrying amount of an asset to the future undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the assets. If such assets are impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. During the year ended December 31, 2023, and 2022, no impairment losses have been identified.

 

Intangible Assets

 

The Company accounts for intangible assets (including trademarks, website and license agreements) under ASC 350 “Intangibles-Goodwill and Other” (“ASC 350”). ASC 350 requires that goodwill and other intangibles with indefinite lives be tested for impairment annually or on an interim basis if events or circumstances indicate that the fair value of an asset has decreased below its carrying value. In addition, ASC 350 requires that goodwill be tested for impairment at the reporting unit level (operating segment or one level below an operating segment) on an annual basis and between annual tests when circumstances indicate the recoverability of the carrying amount of goodwill may be in doubt. Application of the goodwill impairment test requires judgment, including identifying reporting units, assigning assets and liabilities to reporting units, assigning goodwill to reporting units, and determining the fair value. Significant judgments required to estimate the fair value of reporting units include assessing future cash flows and determining appropriate discount rates and other assumptions. Changes in these estimates and assumptions or the occurrence of one or more confirming events in future periods could cause the actual results or outcomes to differ from such estimates materially and affect the determination of fair value and goodwill impairment at future reporting dates.

 

The cost of intangible assets with determinable useful lives is amortized to reflect the pattern of economic benefits consumed on a straight-line or accelerated basis over the estimated periods benefited. Patents, technology, and other intangibles with contractual terms are generally amortized over their respective legal or contractual lives. When certain events or changes in operating conditions occur, an impairment assessment is performed, and lives of intangible assets with determinable lives may be adjusted.

 

We amortize the cost of our intangible assets over the 5 to 15-year estimated useful life on a straight-line basis.

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue from its customer contracts following ASC 606 – Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The Company recognizes revenues when satisfying the performance obligation of the associated contract that reflects the consideration expected to be received based on the terms of the contract.

 

Revenue related to contracts with customers is evaluated utilizing the following steps:

 

 

1.

Identify the contract, or contracts, with a customer.

 

2.

Identify the performance obligations in the contract.

 

3.

Determine the transaction price.

 

4.

Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract.

 

5.

Recognize revenue when the Company satisfies a performance obligation.

 

The Company had no revenue during the years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are recorded following ASC 310, ”Receivables.” Accounts receivables are recorded at the invoiced amount and do not bear interest. The Company has no amount recorded as an allowance for doubtful accounts. The allowance for doubtful accounts is the Company’s best estimate of probable credit losses in its existing accounts receivable. Based on management’s estimate and all charges being current, the Company has not deemed it necessary to reserve for doubtful accounts at this time.

 

The Company had no accounts receivable at December 31, 2023 and 2022.

 

Leases

 

Effective October 1, 2019, the Company adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (the “FASB”) Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (“ASU 2016-02”), and additional ASUs issued to clarify and update the guidance in ASU 2016-02 (collectively, the “new leases standard”), which modifies lease accounting for lessees to increase transparency and comparability by recording lease assets and liabilities for operating leases and disclosing essential information about leasing arrangements. The Company adopted the new lease standard utilizing the modified retrospective transition method, under which amounts in prior periods presented were not restated for contracts existing at the time of adoption. The Company currently does not have any operating lease over one year term to require accessing (i) whether any are or contain leases, (ii) lease classification and (iii) initial direct costs.

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method stipulated by ASC 740 “Income Taxes.” Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities, their respective tax bases and operating loss, and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Under ASC 740, the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities or a change in tax rate is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Deferred tax assets are reduced to estimated amounts to be realized using a valuation allowance. A valuation allowance is applied when in management’s view, it is more likely than not that such deferred tax asset will be unable to be utilized.

 

The Company adopted specific provisions under ASC Topic 740, which provide interpretative guidance for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. Effective with the Company’s adoption of these provisions, interest related to the unrecognized tax benefits is recognized in the financial statements as a component of income taxes.

 

The Company’s tax returns are subject to examination by the federal and state tax authorities for the years ended 2017 through 2021. In the unlikely event that an uncertain tax position exists in which the Company could incur income taxes, the Company would evaluate whether there is a probability that the uncertain tax position taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities. Reserves for uncertain tax positions would be recorded if the Company determined it is probable that a position would not be sustained upon examination or if payment would have to be made to a taxing authority and the amount is reasonably estimated. As of December 31, 2023, and 2022, the Company does not believe it has any uncertain tax positions that would result in the Company having a liability to the taxing authorities.

 

Stock-based Compensation

 

We account for stock-based awards at fair value on the grant date and recognize compensation over the service period they are expected to vest. Using the Black-Scholes option pricing model, we estimate the fair value of stock options and stock purchase warrants. The estimated value of the portion of a stock-based award that is ultimately expected to vest, considering estimated forfeitures, is recognized as expense over the requisite service periods. The model includes subjective input assumptions that can materially affect the fair value estimates. The expected volatility is estimated based on the most recent historical period of other comparative securities, equal to the weighted average life of the options. The estimate of stock awards that will ultimately vest requires judgment. To the extent that actual forfeitures differ from estimated forfeitures, such differences are accounted for as a cumulative adjustment to compensation expenses and recorded in the period that estimates are revised. For the year ended December 31, 2023, and 2022, the Company incurred $0 and $ 0 for stock-based compensation, respectively.  

 

Debt Issue Costs

 

The Company may pay debt issue costs in connection with raising funds through the issuance of debt whether convertible or not, or with other considerations. These costs are recorded as debt discounts and are amortized over the life of the obligation to the statement of operations as amortization of debt discount.

 

Original Issue Discount

 

Suppose a debt is issued with an original issue discount. In that case, the original issue discount is recorded as a debt discount, reducing the face amount of the note. It is amortized over the life of the debt to the statement of operations as amortization of debt discount. If the underlying debt is converted, a proportionate share of the unamortized amounts is immediately expensed.

Research and Development Expenses

 

Expenditures for research and development are expensed as incurred. Research and development expenses consists of expenses paid to outside contractors related to the development of the Company’s NFT platform.

 

Use of Accounting 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 the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant items subject to such estimates and assumptions include the valuation of stock-based awards issued and derivatives embedded in financial instruments. Assessments are used to determine depreciation, the valuation of non-cash issuances of common stock, stock options, and warrants, and valuing convertible notes for beneficial conversion features, among others.

 

Fair Value

 

FASB ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820”) establishes a framework for all fair value measurements and expands disclosures related to fair value measurement and developments. ASC 820 defines fair value as the price received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.

 

ASC 820 requires that assets and liabilities measured at fair value are classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:

 

Level 1Quoted market prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets or observable inputs.

Level 2Significant other observable inputs that observable market data can corroborate; and

Level 3Significant unobservable inputs that observable market data cannot corroborate.

 

The following table summarizes fair value measurements by level on December 31, 2023, and 2022, measured at fair value on a recurring basis:

The concentration of Credit Risk

 

The carrying value of short-term financial instruments, including cash, restricted cash, trade accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and short-term debt, approximates the fair value of these instruments. These financial instruments generally expose the Company to limited credit risk and have no stated maturities or have short-term maturities and carry interest rates that approximate the market. The Company maintains cash balances at financial institutions insured by the FDIC. On December 31, 2023, and December 31, 2022, the Company had no amounts above the FDIC limit.

NOTE 5 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

The Company analyzed the conversion option for derivative accounting consideration under ASC 815, “Derivatives and Hedging,” and determined that the convertible notes should be classified as a liability since the conversion option becomes effective at issuance resulting in there being no explicit limit to the number of shares to be delivered upon settlement of the above conversion options. The Company accounts for convertible notes and warrants as a derivative liability due to there being no explicit limit to the number of shares to be delivered upon settlement of all conversion options.

F-19

Table of Contents

 

One matter is entitled Randazzo LLC v. Avani Holdings LLC & Global Fashion Technologies, Inc. The plaintiff initiated this litigation to evict Avani Holdings LLC from its rented premises in California and to recover unpaid rent. The Company does not operate outside the premises and has never signed any leases or other documents with the plaintiff. A judgment of eviction was entered, but the Company does not operate out of the premises in question and therefore did not appear in the matter to oppose the judgment of eviction. The plaintiff is also seeking unpaid rent in the amount of $26,595.

 

The second matter is entitled Patricia Witthuhn v. Global Fashion Technologies, Inc. The plaintiff initiated this litigation to collect wages allegedly due pursuant to her employment with Avani Holdings LLC. The Company never hired Ms. Witthuhn and never acquired Avani Holdings, LLC. Consequently, there is no legitimate cause of action against the Company. However, the Company cannot hire outside counsel for this litigation due to cash flow constraints. The amount being sought by the plaintiff is approximately $15,000.

 

The third matter is entitled William Corso v. Global Fashion Technologies, Inc. The plaintiff initiated this litigation to collect wages allegedly due pursuant to his employment with Avani Holdings LLC. The Company never hired Mr. Corso and never acquired Avani Holdings, LLC. Consequently, there is no legitimate cause of action against the Company. However, the Company cannot hire outside counsel for this litigation due to cash flow constraints. The amount being sought by the plaintiff is approximately $40,000.

 

Employment Agreements

 

Other than as set forth below, we have no formal employment agreements with any of our directors or officers.

 

At the present time we are not compensating our officers and directors. We have the following employments agreements with our executive officers. At the end of 2020 these executive officers agreed to waive compensation for 2020 and for the foreseeable future.

 

On December 30, 2016 we entered into an employment agreement with Paul Serbiak, our CEO and Treasurer, wherein Mr. Serbiak will begin to earn a salary upon our company receiving funding from a potential private placement, while also being granted both vested and incentive-based stock options. Specifically, the base salary for Mr. Serbiak shall initially be set at $90,000 per year but has the potential to incrementally increase up to $200,000 per year based on the Company achieving certain revenue goals. Moreover, Mr. Serbiak’s contract provides for a minimum annual bonus of thirty-percent (30%) of his base salary, but gives the Company the discretion to award an annual bonus of up to three-hundred-percent (300%) of his base salary. As a signing bonus, Mr. Serbiak received 1,500,000 options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock that are exercisable for a period of ten years at the market close price on December 31, 2016. In addition, Mr. Serbiak’s contract provides for up to ten incentive stock option awards of 1% of the shares of common stock outstanding $1,000,000 in net income received by the Company over the next ten years. Such options would be exercisable at the closing bid price for the ten days preceding the Company’s achievement of each award milestone.

 

On February 14, 2017, we entered into an employment agreement with Christopher Giordano, our President, wherein Mr. Giordano will begin to earn a salary upon our company receiving funding from a potential private placement, while also being granted both vested and incentive-based stock options. Specifically, his salary shall not be earned or payable until such time that the Company raises at least $2,000,000 in a private placement. The base salary for Mr. Giordano shall initially be set at $90,000 per year but has the potential to incrementally increase up to $200,000 per year based on the Company achieving certain revenue goals. Moreover, Mr. Giordano’s contract provides for a minimum annual bonus of thirty-percent (30%) of his base salary, but gives the Company the discretion to award an annual bonus of up to two-hundred-percent (200%) of his base salary. As a signing bonus, Mr. Giordano received 250,000 options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock that are exercisable for a period of five years at a strike price of $0.50 per share. In addition, Mr. Giordano’s contract provides for up to ten incentive stock option awards of 0.75% of the shares of common stock outstanding per $1,000,000 in net income received by the Company over the next ten years. Such options would be exercisable at the closing bid price for the ten days preceding the Company’s achievement of each award milestone.
