Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

For the Three Months Ended March 31, 2021

 

NOTE 1 – The Company and Basis Of Presentation

 

The Company

 

Force Protection Video Equipment Corp., (“Company”) was incorporated on March 11, 2011, under the laws of the State of Florida. On February 4, 2021, the Company entered into a Share Exchange Agreement with SRAX, Inc. (“SRAX”). Pursuant to the Share Exchange Agreement, the Company acquired all of the outstanding capital stock of BIG Token, Inc. (“BIGtoken”) a wholly owned subsidiary and an operating segment of SRAX. See Note 2 – Acquisition for further information.

 

BIGtoken is a data technology company offering tools and services to identify and reach consumers for the purpose of marketing and advertising communication. BIGtoken is located in Westlake Village, California. BIGtoken’s technologies assist its clients in: (i) identifying their core consumers and such consumers’ characteristics across various channels in order to discover new and measurable opportunities to maximize profits associated with advertising campaigns and (ii) gaining insight into the activities of their customers. BIGtoken derives its revenues from the sale of proprietary consumer data and sales of digital advertising campaigns.

 

Reporting Entity Presentation

 

The balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 and the condensed consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2020 have been derived and carved out from the consolidated financial statements and accounting records of SRAX as if BIGtoken had operated on a standalone basis within the periods presented. In connection with the Share Exchange, certain assets and liabilities presented have been transferred to FPVD at carry-over (historical cost) basis. Balances contributed by SRAX on or before the completion of the Share Exchange were based on the master separation agreement between the Company and SRAX and related documents governing the contribution. SRAX’s initial net assets contributed were approximately $6,000,000 excluding accounts receivable of approximately $600,000 as of February 1, 2021. The net adjustment to the Company’s historical records was reflected as a net investment from parent. Following the completion of the Share Exchange, the condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary. All periods presented have been accounted for in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and pursuant to the regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto are unaudited. The interim Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in the Company’s annual financial statements have been condensed or omitted. The December 31, 2020 Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet data was derived from the Company’s audited condensed consolidated financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. These interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, in the opinion of management, reflect all normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. The results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2021 or for any future period.

 

These Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with our Audited Consolidated Financial Statements and the notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2020, included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 31, 2021.

 

F- 6
 

 

Liquidity and Going Concern

 

The Company has incurred significant losses since its inception and has not demonstrated an ability to generate sufficient revenues from the sales of its goods and services to achieved profitable operations. There can be no assurance that profitable operations will ever be achieved, or if achieved, could be sustained on a continuing basis.

 

These factors create substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements are issued. The Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. Accordingly, the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared on a basis that assumes the Company will continue as a going concern and which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the ordinary course of business.

 

In making this assessment the Company performed a comprehensive analysis of its current circumstances including: its financial position as of March 31, 2021, its cash flow and cash usage forecasts for the period covering one-year from the issuance date of these Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and its current capital structure.

 

The Company anticipate raising additional capital through the private and public sales of its equity or debt securities, or a combination thereof. Although management believes that such capital sources will be available, there can be no assurance that financing will be available to the Company when needed in order to allow us to continue our operations, or if available, on terms acceptable to the Company. In the event the Company is not able to raise additional capital, its operations may be materially impacted, and the Company will need to curtail operations.

 

Covid-19

 

The ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the operations of the Company continues to be unknown and will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak, new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, and any additional preventative and protective actions that governments or the Company may direct, which may result in an extended period of continued business disruption, reduced customer traffic and reduced operations. Any resulting financial impact cannot be reasonably estimated at this time but may have a material impact on the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

The management of the Company continue to monitor the business environment for any significant changes that could impact their respective operations. The Company have taken proactive steps to manage costs and discretionary spending, such as remote working and reducing facility related expenses.

 

Net Loss per Share

 

We use Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 260, “Earnings Per Share” for calculating the basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share. We compute basic earnings (loss) per share by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock plus the effect of dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method. Dilutive potential common shares include outstanding stock options and warrants and stock awards. For periods with a net loss, basic and diluted loss per share are the same, in that any potential common stock equivalents would have the effect of being anti-dilutive in the computation of net loss per share.

 

Reclassification of Prior Year Presentation

 

Certain prior year accounts have been reclassified for consistency with the current year presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the reported results of operations.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Changes to accounting principles are established by the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) in the form of Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) to the FASB’s Codification. We consider the applicability and impact of all ASUs on our financial position, results of operations, cash flows, or presentation thereof. ASUs not listed below were assessed and determined to not be applicable to our financial position, results of operations, cash flows, or presentation thereof.

 

In May 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-04, “Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options.” The FASB is issuing this Update to clarify and reduce diversity in an issuer’s accounting for modifications or exchanges of freestanding equity-classified written call options (for example, warrants) that remain equity classified after modification or exchange. ASU 2021-04 is effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. An entity should apply the amendments prospectively to modifications or exchanges occurring on or after the effective date of the amendments. We are currently evaluating the impact of this guidance.

 

NOTE 2 – Acquisition

 

On February 4, 2021 (“Acquisition Date”), the Company completed a series of transaction as provided for in the share exchange agreement (“Exchange Agreement”) with SRAX (“Reverse Merger”). Pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, SRAX exchanged 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of BIGtoken for 149,562,566,584 shares of the Company’s common stock and 5,000,000 shares of the Company’s series A preferred stock. The transaction has been accounted for as a reverse merger / reverse capitalization wherein the Company is the legal acquirer, but BIGtoken is the accounting acquirer. As such, for reporting purpose, as of December 31, 2020, the Company’s total shares outstanding were restated to reflect the 149,562,566,584 shares of common stock and 5,000,000 shares of series A preferred stock.

NOTE 3 – Other Current Liabilities

 

BIGtoken Point liability

 

In 2019, BIGtoken launched the BIGtoken consumer data management platform, where registered users are rewarded for undertaking actions and sharing data within the platform. The business is currently based on a platform of registered users, developed as a direct-to-consumer data marketplace where users are paid for their data.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019 BIGtoken instituted a policy that allows BIGtoken users to redeem outstanding BIGtoken points for cash if their account and point balances meet certain criteria. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, BIGtoken has estimated the future liability for point redemptions to be $313,000 and $452,000, respectively. BIGtoken considered the total number of points outstanding, the conversion rate in which points are redeemable for cash, and each user’s redemption eligibility.

 

BIGtoken utilizes an account scoring system that evaluates a number of factors in determining an account’s redemption eligibility. These factors include an evaluation of the following: the infrastructure utilized by the user when engaging with BIGtoken’s systems, the user’s geographical associations, consistency, and verifiability of the user’s data.

 

NOTE 4 – Stockholders’ Equity

 

Series B Preferred Stock

 

On March 12, 2021 (“Closing Date’), the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreements (“SPA”) and Registration Rights Agreements (“RRA”) with accredited investors pursuant to which investors purchased 47,248 shares of Series B preferred Stock (“Series B Stock”) for an aggregate of $4,725,000 or $100 per share (the “Offering”). The Company had previously closed on 10,500 shares of Series B Preferred stock or $1,050,000 in October of 2020. As a result, on March 12, 2021, there were 57,748 shares of Series B Stock outstanding.

 

F- 8
 

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Company’s Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series B Preferred Stock (“COD”), (i) each share of Series B Stock has a stated value of $100, (ii) the Series B Stock accrues a 5% dividend beginning one year after the original issue date and thereafter on a quarterly basis, (iii) the Series B Stock has no voting rights, except as required by law, and (iv) the Series B Stock has no liquidation preference over the Company’s Common Stock. Additionally, the Series B Stock converts into Common Stock (i) at the election of the holder at any time at a price equal to $15,000,000 divided by the fully diluted outstanding securities of the Company at the time of conversion (“Standard Conversion Price”) or (ii) automatically upon the completion of an offering of $5,000,000 or more (“Qualified Offering”) at the lower of (a) the Standard Conversion Price or (b) eighty percent (80%) of the lowest per share purchase price of Common Stock in such Qualified Offering (“Qualified Offering Conversion Price”).

 

As a result of being oversubscribed, the Offering met the conditions of a Qualified Financing and as a result the Company issued a total of 67,371,841,498 shares of the Company’s common stock upon automatic conversion of the Series B Stock. The Company calculated the value of the beneficial conversion feature as $5,775,000 which was fully amortized and recorded as a deemed dividend. In accordance with ASC 480 – Distinguish Liabilities from Equity, the Series B Stock would be classified as equity on the Closing Date, because they are convertible into a fixed number of shares at a fixed dollar amount. On the Closing Date both the 57,748 and 10,500 shares of series B preferred stock were classified as equity. As of March 31, 2021, none of the Series B Preferred Stock had been converted into common Stock.

 

Common Stock Warrants

 

As part of SRAX’s convertible debenture offering in June 2020, SRAX negotiated the ability to release the BIGtoken business as collateral for the repayment of the debentures. As consideration for the release, SRAX agreed to require the Company to issue warrants in the new entity. The warrants were to represent 13% of the new entity’s issued and outstanding shares on a fully diluted basis upon closing. As disclosed in Note 2– Acquisition, SRAX entered into an agreement to merge BIGtoken with the Company on February 4, 2021, which required the issuance of 25,568,064,462 warrants. Based on a valuation from an independent third-party, the fair-market value of the warrants required to be issued was determined to be $885,000 based on implied 3-year volatility of 92.30%, a risk-free equivalent yield of 18% and stock price of $0.00006552.

 

NOTE 5 – Subsequent Events

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

 

The following Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations contains forward-looking statements regarding our business development plans, timing, strategies, expectations, anticipated expenses levels, business prospects and positioning with respect to market, demographic and pricing trends, business outlook, technology spending and various other matters (including contingent liabilities and obligations and changes in accounting policies, standards and interpretations) and express our current intentions, beliefs, expectations, strategies or predictions. These forward-looking statements are based on a number of assumptions and currently available information and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including those set forth under “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” and under “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this quarterly report. The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and related notes thereto included elsewhere in this quarterly report.

 

Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (“MD&A”) is provided in addition to the accompanying financial statements and notes to assist readers in understanding our results of operations, financial condition, and cash flows. MD&A is organized as follows:

 

Prior to the completion of the Share Exchange, BIGtoken was an operating segment of SRAX. On February 4, 2021 we completed the Share Exchange. As a result, BIGtoken became our wholly owned subsidiary, and we adopted BIGtoken’s business plan. We anticipate formally changing our name to BIGtoken in the future. In connection with the Share Exchange, we also entered into certain agreements with SRAX including but not limited to the TSA and MSA, as more fully described in this Quarterly Report. The terms of these agreements may be more or less favorable to us than if they had been negotiated with unaffiliated third parties.

 

Company Overview

 

We are a data technology company that generates revenue from providing enterprise customers with the opportunity to access consumers directly, with permission-based and authenticated data, for the purposes of more efficiently and effectively allocating marketing budgets and executing on related campaigns, conducting market research and building unique, valuable, first party, proprietary databases. We do this via our consumer-based application that allows consumers to own and earn from their digital identity and data.

 

Business Highlights

 

During the quarter ending March 31, 2021, and through the date of the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the Company achieved the following milestones:

 

  Completed a share exchange transaction whereby we acquired 100% of the outstanding capital stock of BIGtoken, and we adopted BIGtoken’s business plan.
  Between March and April 2021, we sold $4,809,827 of equity securities to accredited investors resulting in the issuance of 48,098 shares of Series B Preferred Stock, which were subsequently converted into Common Stock.
  Augmented senior management with the appointment of George Stella, our Chief Revenue Officer, to the additional position of President.
  Completed restructuring sales department to better serve existing clients and expand capabilities.
  Adjusted platform matrix, which has initially resulted in enhanced user engagement.
  Realigned BIGtoken platform to increase and better focus on domestic markets until platform is ready for expansion.

 

Our Relationship with SRAX

 

Arrangements Between SRAX and Our Company

 

Pursuant to the completion of the Share Exchange, we entered into:

 

  a master separation agreement, or MSA;
  a transition services agreement, or TSA;

 

These agreements provide a framework for our relationship with SRAX after the separation and provide for the allocation between us and SRAX of SRAX’s assets, employees, liabilities and obligations (including its investments, property and employee benefits assets and liabilities) attributable to periods prior to, at and after our separation from SRAX, specifically,

 

Arrangements Between SRAX and Our Company

 

Pursuant to the sale of our Series B Preferred Stock we converted an aggregate of 48,098 shares of Series B Preferred Stock into approximately 68,583,866,100 shares of Common Stock. Subsequent to such conversions, SRAX owns approximately 64% of the voting power of our capital stock. As of the date hereof, there are 10,500 shares of Series B Preferred Stock that have not been converted into shares of Common Stock as a result of beneficial ownership limitations.

For as long as SRAX continues to control more than 50% of our outstanding common stock, SRAX or its successor-in-interest will be able to direct the election of all the members of our board of directors. Similarly, SRAX will have the power to determine matters submitted to a vote of our stockholders without the consent of our other stockholders, will have the power to prevent a change in control of us and will have the power to take certain other actions that might be favorable to SRAX. In addition, the MSA provides that, as long as SRAX beneficially owns at least 50% of the total voting power of our outstanding capital stock entitled to vote in the election of our board of directors, we will not (without SRAX’s prior written consent) take certain actions, such as incurring additional indebtedness and acquiring businesses or assets or disposing of assets in excess of certain amounts.

 

Components of Operating Results

 

Revenue

 

Our revenues consist of the sale of consumer data obtained through the BIGtoken platform in conjunction with various marketing related services, such as the following:

 

  The use of BIGtoken user surveys and the sale of such information received from surveys;
     
  The creation and management of targeted rewards and loyalty programs based on information and buying trends ascertained by data captured on our BIGtoken platform;
     
  The ability to assist our customers in conducting market research based on analytics received from users of the BIGtoken platform;
     
  The ability to identify specific audiences for our customers and to target questions, surveys and data analytics geared toward our customers’ products / industries. Additionally, if we are unable to scale the needed information for a customer’s target audience, we may utilize our proprietary analytics to gain insight to further focus and refine user segments that need to be targeted in order to optimize data and media spend;
     
  The use of Lightning Insights that allow our customers to conduct research around specific audience groups through both long and short research studies; and
     
  The creation of customized loyalty programs that utilize rewards to drive consumer purchasing habits.

 

Our revenue can vary based on a number of factors, including changes in the overall advertising and data markets, user adoption of the BIGtoken platform, the effectiveness of our audience targeting abilities; changes in technology; and adoption of our current and future BIGtoken product offerings.

 

Cost of Revenue

 

Cost of revenue consists of the costs of media and other third-party costs incurred in conjunction with the marketing related services we provide.

 

Our cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue can vary based upon a number of factors, including those that may affect our revenue set forth above and factors that may affect our cost of revenue, including, without limitation: the cost of media utilized to perform our marketing services, the volume of media or the effectiveness of our services. From time to time, however, we may experience fluctuations in our gross margin as a result of the factors discussed above.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Employee related costs

 

Employee related costs consist of salaries and other compensation and related costs paid to our employees and contractors. We expect these costs to increase in absolute dollars as we invest and expand our business.

 

Marketing and selling expenses

 

Marketing and selling expenses consist primarily of advertising, corporate communications and user acquisition related costs as well as costs related to the redemption of BIG Token points from our users. We expect our sales and marketing expense to increase in absolute dollars for the foreseeable future as we continue to invest in brand marketing to strengthen our competitive position, to accelerate growth and to increase brand awareness.

 

5
 

 

Platform costs

 

Platform costs consist of technology and content hosting of our BIGtoken platform. We expect these costs to increase in absolute dollars for the foreseeable future as we continue to expand our user base.

 

Depreciation and Amortization

 

Depreciation and Amortization cost represent an allocation of the costs incurred to acquire the long-lived assets used in our business over their estimated useful lives. Our long-lived assets consist of property and equipment and internally developed software.

 

General and Administrative

 

General and administrative expense consists primarily of human resources, information technology, professional fees, IT and facility overhead, and other general corporate expense. We expect our general and administrative expense to increase in absolute dollars primarily as a result of the increased costs associated with being a stand-alone public company. However, we also expect our general and administrative expense to fluctuate as a percentage of our revenue in future periods based on fluctuations in our revenue and the timing of such expense.

 

Covid-19

 

In December 2019, an outbreak of a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) originated in Wuhan, China and has since spread to a number of other countries, including the U.S. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization characterized COVID-19 as a pandemic. The COVID-19 outbreak is disrupting supply chains and affecting production and sales across a wide range of industries. The extent of the impact of COVID-19 on our operational and financial performance will depend on certain developments, including the duration and spread of the outbreak, impact on our customers, employees and vendors all of which are uncertain and cannot be predicted. At this point, the extent to which COVID-19 may impact our financial condition or results of operations is uncertain.

 

Comparisons Used Herein

 

All of the below comparisons to periods prior to the completion of the Share Exchange are based on carve-out financials and allocation of expenses agreed upon by the Company and SRAX and may not be indicative of any future financial performance of the Company.

BIGtoken revenues

 

BIGtoken revenues for the three months-ended March 31, 2021 increased to $855,000 or 343% compared to $193,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2020. This increase is primarily driven by the increased acceptance of our product offering, the growth of our product offering and the continued investment in BIGtoken user database.

 

BIGtoken Profit Margin

 

BIGtoken’s costs of revenue consist of media acquired from third parties that we sell to our customers. Profit margin for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased to 68% as compared to 49% in 2020. The increase is driven by enhanced operational execution.

 

Operating Expenses

 

BIGtoken Operating Expenses

 

Our operating costs for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased to $2,103,000 or by $1,043,000 or 33% as compared to $3,146,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The decrease in operating expense is primarily attributable to a decrease in employee compensation costs as further discussed below.

 

  Employee Related Costs were $565,000 and $1,714,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. This represents a decrease of $1,149,000 or approximately 67% for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the comparable period of 2020. The decrease is primarily due to a reduction in head count in our sales and operations departments.
   
  Marketing, data services and sales costs were $166,000 and $267,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. This represents a decrease of $101,000 or 38% for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the comparable period of 2020. For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company incurred $189,000 and $38,000, respectively, in expenses related to payments to users for point redemptions and accruals for future redemptions. This represents an increase of $151,000 or 397%. We expect these costs to continue to grow in nominal dollars as we continue to grow but expect that they continue to decrease as a percentage of our revenues.
   
  Platform costs were $287,000 and $293,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. We expect these costs to increase in absolute dollars as we continue to grow our user database but expect that they continue to decrease as a percentage of our revenues.
   
  General and administrative expenses were $943,000 and $603,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. This represents an increase of $340,000 or 56% for the three months ended March 31, 2021 over the comparable period of 2020. Inclusive of this increase is approximately $330,000 of allocated corporate overhead. We expect our general and administrative expense to fluctuate as a percentage of our revenue in future periods.

Interest Expense and Financing Cost

 

Our financing costs were $0.00 and $315,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The decrease is because there were no allocation of financing costs from SRAX for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

Change in the Fair Value our Warrant Liabilities

 

Income associated with the changes in the fair value of warrant liabilities have been recorded in other income for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and represent a proportionate allocation of the income our Parent has incurred attributable to the changes in the calculated value of warrants it issued through various financing transactions in 2017 through 2020.

 

Summary of Cash Flows

 

    Three Months Ended March 31,  
    2021     2020  
             
Net cash used in operating activities   $ (1,188,000 )     (893,000 )
Net cash provided by (used in) investing activities     955,000       (149,000 )
Net cash provided by financing activities    

5,082,000

      1,045,000  

 

Cash flows from operating activities

 

Our largest source of operating cash is payments from customers. Our customers typically pay us from 60 to 120 days from the date we invoice them. The primary use of operating cash is to pay our media suppliers, employees and our users through point redemptions, and others for a wide range of services. Cash flows used in our operating activities decreased by $295,000 or 33% in 2021 primarily driven by an increase in cash payments for operating expenses partially offset by an increase in gross profit.

 

Cash flows from investing activities

 

Our principal recurring investing activity is the funding of our internal software development. Expenditures for software development were $0 and $149,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company generated $955,000 from business acquisition.

 

Cash flows from financing activities

 

Cash provided by financing activities represents cash receipts or payments to our Parent. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company generated $4,725,000 from the issuance of series B preferred stock. Cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased by approximately $4,000,000 or 390%.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Historically, our operations have participated in cash management and funding arrangements managed by SRAX. Other than those that are in BIGtoken designated legal entities, SRAX’s cash has not been assigned to us for any of the periods presented because those cash balances are not directly attributable to us. Cash and cash equivalents presented in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets represent amounts pertaining to the BIGtoken legal entity only. Cash used in operations increased from $893,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 to $1,188,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 due primarily to an increase in cash payments for operating expenses. Prior to the Share Exchange, we were dependent on SRAX for our continued support to fund our operations. Upon the close of our Share Exchange, we have raised an additional $4,725,000 through a private offering of our Series B Preferred Stock.

 

Our capital structure and sources of liquidity will change significantly from our historical capital structure. Following the Share Exchange, we expect to use cash flows generated from operations, together with the proceeds of $4,725,000 from the sale of series B preferred stock, as our primary sources of liquidity. Based on our current plans and market conditions, we believe that such sources of liquidity will be sufficient to satisfy our anticipated cash requirements for at least through the third quarter of 2021. We plan to invest in the sales of our existing product line to a wider audience, as well as in software modifications of our core technology to serve new customer needs in response to increased customer demand for differentiated data sets. Such opportunities will require modest software development expense as they are built on top of our existing platform. We will require additional funds to support our operating expenses and capital requirements, and will need to seek additional funds through the public or private equity or debt financing or from other sources. We cannot assure you that additional financing will be available at all, or that if available, such financing will be obtainable on terms favorable to us and would not be dilutive. Our future liquidity and cash requirements will depend on numerous factors, including the introduction of new products and potential acquisitions of related businesses or technology.

Going Concern

 

The Company has incurred significant losses since its inception and has not demonstrated an ability to generate sufficient revenues to achieved profitable operations. In addition, the Company’s operations will require significant additional financing. As of the closing of the Series B offering the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $5 million which is not sufficient to fund the Company’s planned operations through one year after the date the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are issued, and accordingly, these factors create substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are issued. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. Accordingly, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a basis that assumes the Company will continue as a going concern and which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the ordinary course of business.

 

In making this assessment we performed a comprehensive analysis of our current circumstances including: our financial position, our cash flow and cash usage forecasts, and obligations and debts. Although our Parent Company’s management has a history of capital raises, the analysis used to determine the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern does not include cash sources outside the Company’s direct control that management expects to be available within the next 12 months.

 

Arrangements Between SRAX and Our Company

 

We have entered into certain agreements that will affect the separation of our business from SRAX, provide a framework for our relationship with SRAX after the separation and provide for the allocation between us and SRAX of SRAX’s assets, employees, liabilities and obligations (including its investments, property and employee benefits assets and liabilities) attributable to periods prior to, at and after our separation from SRAX, specifically:

 

  the MSA; and
     
  the TSA.

 

The material terms of each of these agreements are summarized below. These summaries are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such agreements, which are filed as exhibits to our public filings. When used in this section, “separation date” refers to the date on which SRAX will contribute the BIGtoken business to us, which will occur prior to the completion of this Share Exchange.

The Master Separation Agreement

 

The MSA identifies assets, liabilities and contracts that were transferred, assumed or assigned as part of the separation

 

Except as may expressly be set forth in the MSA or any other transaction agreements, all assets were transferred on an “as is,” “where is” basis, and the respective transferees bear the economic and legal risks that (1) any conveyance will prove to be insufficient to vest in the transferee good title, free and clear of any security interest, and (2) any necessary consents or governmental approvals are not obtained or that any requirements of laws or judgments are not complied with.

 

Claims

 

In general, each party to the MSA assumed liability for all pending, threatened and unasserted legal matters related to its own business or its assumed or retained liabilities and will indemnify the other party from any liability to the extent arising out of or resulting from such assumed or retained legal matters.

 

Intercompany Accounts

 

The MSA provides that, subject to any provisions in the MSA or any other transaction agreement to the contrary, all intercompany accounts between SRAX and its subsidiaries, on the one hand, and BIGtoken and its subsidiaries, on the other hand, were settled.

 

Further Assurances

 

To the extent that any transfers or assignments contemplated by the MSA has not been consummated, the parties will agree to cooperate to effect such transfers as promptly as practicable. In addition, each of the parties agrees to cooperate with the other party and use commercially reasonable efforts to take or to cause to be taken all actions, and to do, or to cause to be done, all things reasonably necessary under applicable law or contractual obligations to consummate and make effective the transactions contemplated by the MSA and the other transaction agreements.

 

Financial Covenants; Auditors and Audits; Annual Financial Statements and Accounting

 

We have agreed that, for so long as SRAX is required to consolidate our results of operations and financial position or account for its investment in our company under the equity method of accounting, we will, among other things:

 

  maintain disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting that will provide reasonable assurance that, among other things, (1) our annual and quarterly financial statements are reliable and timely prepared in accordance with GAAP and applicable law, (2) our transactions are recorded as necessary to permit the preparation of our financial statements, (3) receipts and expenditures are authorized at the appropriate level within BIGtoken and (4) unauthorized uses and dispositions of assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements are prevented or detected in a timely manner;
     
  maintain the same fiscal year as SRAX;
     
  establish a disclosure committee that will review our Forms 10-Q, 10-K and other significant filings with the SEC, and permit up to three employees selected by SRAX to attend such committee’s meetings;
     
  not change our independent auditors without SRAX’s prior written consent;
     
  use our reasonable best efforts to enable our independent auditors to complete their audit of our financial statements in a timely manner so as to permit timely filing of SRAX’s financial statements;
     
  provide to SRAX and its independent auditors all information required for SRAX to meet its schedule for the filing and distribution of its financial statements and to make available to SRAX and its independent auditors all documents necessary for the annual audit of our company as well as access to the responsible company personnel so that SRAX and its independent auditors may conduct their audits relating to our financial statements;

 

10
 

 

  adhere to certain specified SRAX accounting policies and notify and consult with SRAX regarding any changes to our accounting principles and estimates used in the preparation of our financial statements, and any deficiencies in, or violations of law in connection with, our internal control over financial reporting;
     
  coordinate with SRAX regarding the timing and content of our earnings releases and cooperate fully (and cause our independent auditors to cooperate fully) with SRAX in connection with any of its public filings; and
     
  promptly report in reasonable detail to SRAX the following events or circumstances that we become aware of: (1) significant deficiencies and material weaknesses which are reasonably likely to adversely affect our ability to report financial information; (2) any fraud that involves management or other employees who have a significant role in our internal control over financial reporting; (3) illegal acts; and (4) any report of a material violation of law made pursuant to the SEC’s attorney conduct rules.

 

Indemnification

 

In addition, the MSA provides for cross-indemnities principally designed to place financial responsibility for the obligations and liabilities of our business with us and financial responsibility for the obligations and liabilities of SRAX’s business with SRAX. Specifically, each party has agreed to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the other party, its affiliates and subsidiaries and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, the “indemnified parties”) for any losses arising out of or otherwise in connection with:

 

  the liabilities that each such party assumed or retained pursuant to the MSA (which, in our case, would include the BIGtoken Liabilities and, in the case of SRAX, would include the SRAX Liabilities) and the other transaction agreements;
     
  the failure of SRAX or us to pay, perform or otherwise promptly discharge any of the SRAX Liabilities or the BIGtoken Liabilities, respectively, in accordance with their terms, whether prior to, at or after the separation;
     
  any breach by such party of the MSA or the other transaction agreements (other than the intellectual property rights cross-license agreement, which specifies the parties’ obligations therein); and
     
  except to the extent relating to a BIGtoken Liability, in the case of SRAX, or a SRAX Liability, in our case, any guarantee, indemnification or contribution obligation, surety bond or other credit support agreement or arrangement for the benefit of SRAX or us, respectively.

 

We also agreed to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the SRAX indemnified parties for any losses arising out of or otherwise in connection with any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, with respect to all information (1) contained in any of our public filings with the SEC following the Share Exchange or (3) provided by us to SRAX specifically for inclusion in SRAX’s annual or quarterly or current reports following the Share Exchange to the extent (A) such information pertains to us or the BIGtoken business or (B) SRAX has provided prior written notice to us that such information will be included in one or more annual or quarterly or current reports, specifying how such information will be presented, and the information is included in such annual or quarterly or current reports (except, in the case of clause (B), for liabilities arising out of or resulting from, or in connection with, any action or inaction of any member of SRAX, including as a result of any misstatement or omission of any information by SRAX to us).

 

11
 

 

The MSA also specifies procedures with respect to claims subject to indemnification and related matters.

 

Other Provisions

 

The master separation agreement will also govern other matters related to the consummation of the Share Exchange, the provision and retention of records, access to information, confidentiality, cooperation with respect to governmental filings and third-party consents and insurance.

 

Transition Services Agreement

 

In connection with the Share Exchange we entered into a TSA with SRAX pursuant to which SRAX is providing us with specified services for an indefinite period of time to help ensure an orderly transition following the separation. The TSA specifies the calculation of our costs for these services. The cost of these services will be periodically reviewed by the parties to determine if an adjustment should be made.

 

The TSA generally provides that the applicable service recipient indemnifies the applicable service provider for liabilities that such service provider incurs arising from the provision of services other than liabilities arising from such service provider’s gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct or material breach of the TSA, and that the applicable service provider indemnifies the applicable service recipient for liabilities that such service recipient incurs arising from such service provider’s gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct or material breach of the TSA.

 

Employees and Human Capital Resources

 

As of March 31, 2021, we had 59 full-time employees. 2 are engaged in executive management, 33 in information technology including those participating in our research and development efforts, 15 in sales and marketing, 8 in integration and customer support and 1 in administration. All employees are employed “at will.” We believe our relations with our employees are generally positive and we have no collective bargaining agreements with any labor unions.

 

Our human capital resources objectives include, as applicable, identifying, recruiting, retaining, incentivizing and integrating our existing and new employees. The principal purposes of our equity and cash incentive plans are to attract, retain and reward personnel, whether existing employees or new hires, through the granting of stock-based and cash-based compensation awards. We believe that this increases value to our stockholders and the success of our company by motivating such individuals to perform to the best of their abilities and achieve our objectives.

 

As the success of our business is fundamentally connected to the well-being of our employees, we are committed to their health, safety and wellness. We provide our employees and their families with access to convenient health and wellness programs, including benefits that provide protection and security giving them peace of mind concerning events that may require time away from work or that impact their financial well-being; and that offer choice where possible so they can customize their benefits to meet their needs and the needs of their families. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we implemented significant changes that we determined were in the best interest of our employees, as well as the community in which we operate, and which comply with government regulations, including working in a remote environment where appropriate or required.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate estimates which are subject to significant judgment. The more critical accounting estimates include estimates related to revenue recognition. We also have other key accounting policies, which involve the use of estimates, judgments and assumptions that are significant to understanding our results, which are described in Note 1 to our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the quarters ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 appearing elsewhere in this report. There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates since our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

 

The following critical accounting policies affect the more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. In addition, you should refer to our accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as of March 31, 2021, and the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, Changes in Stockholders’ Equity and Cash Flows for quarters ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, and the related notes thereto, for further discussion of our accounting policies.

 

On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates compared to historical experience and trends, which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities. To the extent that there are material differences between our estimates and our actual results, our future financial statement presentation, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows will be affected.

 

We believe the assumptions and estimates associated with the following have the greatest potential impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in conformity with U.S. GAAP and requires management of the Company to make estimates and assumptions in the preparation of these Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates and assumptions.

 

The most significant areas that require management judgment and which are susceptible to possible change in the near term include the Company’s revenue recognition, provision for bad debts, BIGtoken point redemption liability, goodwill and intangible assets.

 

As of March 31, 2021, the impact of COVID-19 continues to unfold and as a result, certain estimates and assumptions require increased judgment and carry a higher degree of variability and volatility that could result in material changes to our estimates in future periods.

 

Intangible assets

 

Intangible assets consist of the Company’s intellectual property of internally developed software and are stated at cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization is provided for on the straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets of five to nine years.

 

Costs incurred to develop computer software for internal use are capitalized once: (1) the preliminary project stage is completed, (2) management authorizes and commits to funding a specific software project, and (3) it is probable that the project will be completed and the software will be used to perform the function intended. Costs incurred prior to meeting the qualifications are expensed as incurred. Capitalization of costs ceases when the project is substantially complete and ready for its intended use. Post-implementation costs related to the internal use computer software, are expensed as incurred. Internal use software development costs are amortized using the straight-line method over its estimated useful life which ranges up to three years. Software development costs may become impaired in situations where development efforts are abandoned due to the viability of the planned project becoming doubtful or due to technological obsolescence of the planned software product.

 

13
 

 

During 2018, the Company began to capitalize the costs of developing internal-use computer software, including directly related payroll costs.

 

The Company capitalizes costs incurred during the application development stage of internal-use software and amortize these costs over the estimated useful life. Upgrades and enhancements are capitalized if they result in added functionality which enable the software to perform tasks it was previously incapable of performing. Software maintenance, training, data conversion, and business process reengineering costs are expensed in the period in which they are incurred.

 

Goodwill

 

Goodwill is comprised of the purchase price of business combinations in excess of the fair value assigned at acquisition to the net tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired. Goodwill is not amortized. The Company tests goodwill for impairment for its reporting units on an annual basis, or when events occur or circumstances indicate the fair value of a reporting unit is below its carrying value. If the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value, an impairment loss is recorded to the extent that implied fair value of the goodwill within the reporting unit is less than its carrying value. The Company performed its most recent annual goodwill impairment test as of December 31, 2020 using market data and discounted cash flow analysis. Based on this analysis, it was determined that the fair value exceeded the carrying value of its reporting units.

 

The Company had historically performed its annual goodwill and impairment assessment on December 31st of each year. This aligns the Company with other technology companies who also generally conduct this annual analysis in the fourth quarter.

 

When evaluating the potential impairment of goodwill, management first assess a range of qualitative factors, including but not limited to, macroeconomic conditions, industry conditions, the competitive environment, changes in the market for the Company’s products and services, regulatory and political developments, entity specific factors such as strategy and changes in key personnel, and the overall financial performance for each of the Company’s reporting units. If, after completing this assessment, it is determined that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value, we then proceed to the impairment testing methodology primarily using the income approach (discounted cash flow method).

 

We compare the carrying value of the goodwill, with its fair value, as determined by a combination of the market approach and income approach, its estimated discounted cash flows. If the carrying value of goodwill exceeds its fair value, the excess amount will be recognized as an impairment charge. We operate as one reporting unit.

 

When required, we arrive at our estimates of fair value using a discounted cash flow methodology which includes estimates of future cash flows to be generated by specifically identified assets, as well as selecting a discount rate to measure the present value of those anticipated cash flows. Estimating future cash flows requires significant judgment and includes making assumptions about projected growth rates, industry-specific factors, working capital requirements, weighted average cost of capital, and current and anticipated operating conditions. The use of different assumptions or estimates for future cash flows could produce different results.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company applies Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC Topic 606”). The core principle of ASC 606 requires that an entity recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. ASC 606 defines a five-step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, it is possible more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than required under existing U.S. GAAP including identifying performance obligations in the contract, estimating the amount of variable consideration to include in the transaction price and allocating the transaction price to each separate performance obligation.

 

The following five steps are applied to achieve that core principle:

 

  Step 1: Identify the contract with the customer;
     
  Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract;

 

14
 

 

  Step 3: Determine the transaction price;
     
  Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and
     
  Step 5: Recognize revenue when the company satisfies a performance obligation.

 

Under current and prior revenue guidance, revenues are recognized when control of the promised goods or services are transferred to the customer, in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for those good or services.

For further information on recently issued accounting pronouncements, see Note 1 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in the accompanying notes to condensed consolidated financial statements included in Part II, Item 8, “Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

Off balance sheet arrangements

 

As of the date of this report, we do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors. The term “off-balance sheet arrangement” generally means any transaction, agreement or other contractual arrangement to which an entity unconsolidated with us is a party, under which we have any obligation arising under a guarantee contract, derivative instrument or variable interest or a retained or contingent interest in assets transferred to such entity or similar arrangement that serves as credit, liquidity or market risk support for such assets.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

Not applicable, as we are a smaller reporting company.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures” as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognized that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of disclosure controls and procedures are met. Additionally, in designing disclosure controls and procedures, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures. The design of any disclosure controls and procedures also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Based on their evaluation as of the end of the period covered by this report, our Principal Executive Officer and our Principal Financial Officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that the information relating to our Company, required to be disclosed in our SEC reports (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure as a result of continuing material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting identified in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

 

We are in the process of evaluating possible remediation efforts to these material weaknesses.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting. There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during our last fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

 

None.

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS.

 

Please consider the following risk factors carefully. If any one or more of the following risks were to occur, it could have a material adverse effect on our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations, and the market price of our securities could decrease significantly. Statements below to the effect that an event could or would harm our business (or have an adverse effect on our business or similar statements) mean that the event could or would have a material adverse effect on our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations, which in turn could or would have a material adverse effect on the market price of our securities. Although we have organized the risk factors below under headings to make them easier to read, many of the risks we face involve more than one type of risk. Consequently, you should read all of the risk factors below carefully before making any decision to acquire or hold our securities.

 

16
 

 

Risks Related to Our Business

 

We have a history of operating losses and there are no assurances we will report profitable operations in the foreseeable future.

 

We have losses from operations of $8,581,000 and $15,981,000 for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Additionally, for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, we recorded losses from operations of $1,521,000 and $3,051,000, respectively, and accumulated deficit of $43,867,000 and $36,571,000, respectively. Our future success depends upon our ability to continue to grow our revenues, contain our operating expenses and generate profits. We do not have any long-term agreements with our customers. There are no assurances that we will be able to increase our revenues and cash flow to a level which supports profitable operations. We may continue to incur losses in future periods until such time, if ever, as we are successful in significantly increasing our revenues and cash flow beyond what is necessary to fund our ongoing operations and pay our obligations as they become due. If we are not able to grow, increase revenue and begin generating consistent profits, it is unlikely we will be able to generate sufficient cash from operations to pay our operating expenses and service our debt obligations, or report profitable operations in future periods.

 

We may not be able to continue as a going concern if we do not obtain additional financing.

 

We have incurred losses since our inception and have not demonstrated an ability to generate revenues from the sales of our proposed products. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on raising capital from the sale of our common stock and/or obtaining debt financing. Our cash, cash equivalents and short-term investment balance as of March 31, 2021 was approximately $4,850,000. On April 12, 2021 we closed on an additional $85,000 in the private placement of our Series B Preferred Stock. Based on our cash, cash equivalents and short term investments, as well as the proceeds from the offering, as well as our current expected level of operating expenditures, we expect to be able to fund our operations through the third quarter of 2021. Our ability to remain a going concern is wholly dependent upon our ability to continue to obtain sufficient capital to fund our operations. Accordingly, despite our ability to secure capital in the past, there can be no assurance that additional equity or debt financing will be available to us when needed or that we may be able to secure funding from any other sources. In the event that we are not able to secure funding, we may be forced to curtail operations, delay or stop ongoing clinical trials, cease operations altogether or file for bankruptcy.

 

We will need to raise additional capital to continue operations.

 

As of March 31, 2021, we had $4,850,000 in cash or cash equivalents or short-term investment. Based on our cash, cash equivalents and short term investments, as well as our current expected level of operating expenditures, we expect to be able to fund our operations through the third quarter of 2021. We cannot assure you that we will be able to secure additional capital through financing transactions, including issuance of debt. Our inability to operate profitably, or secure additional financing will materially impact our ability to fund our current and planned operations.

 

We have spent and expect to continue spending substantial cash in the execution of our business plan and the development of the BIG Token platform. We cannot assure you that financing will be available if needed. If additional financing is not available, we may not be able to fund our operations, develop or enhance our product offerings, take advantage of business opportunities or respond to competitive market pressures. If we exhaust our cash reserves and are unable to secure additional financing, we may be unable to meet our obligations which could result in us initiating bankruptcy proceedings or delaying or eliminating some or all our research and product development programs.

 

Our failure to maintain an effective system of internal control over financial reporting may result in the need for us to restate previously issued financial statements. As a result, current and potential stockholders may lose confidence in our financial reporting, which could harm our business and value of our stock.

 

Or management has determined that, as of March 31, 2021, we did not maintain effective internal controls over financial reporting based on criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in Internal Control-Integrated Framework as a result of identified material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

 

17
 

 

Our auditors have expressed substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Our auditors’ report on our December 31, 2020 consolidated financial statements expresses an opinion that our capital resources as of the date of their audit report were not sufficient to sustain operations or complete our planned activities for the upcoming year unless we raised additional funds. Our current cash level raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern past the third quarter of 2021. If we do not obtain additional capital by such time, we may no longer be able to continue as a going concern and may cease operation or seek bankruptcy protection.

 

If we are unable to successfully retain and integrate a new management team, our business could be harmed.

 

We have historically operated as a business unit of SRAX. Our success depends largely on the development and execution of our business strategy by our senior management team. Effective May 15, 2021, Lou Kerner was terminated as Chief Executive Officer and Christopher Miglino was appointed interim principal executive officer. Our success depends largely on the development and execution of our business strategy by our senior management team. We currently have a limited executive team which may adversely affect our business. Additionally, the loss of any members or key personnel would likely harm our ability to implement our business strategy and respond to the rapidly changing market conditions in which we operate. There may be a limited number of persons with the requisite skills to serve in these positions, and we cannot assure you that we would be able to identify or employ such qualified personnel on acceptable terms, if at all. We cannot assure you that management will succeed in working together as a team. In the event we are unsuccessful, our business and prospects could be harmed.

 

We have no operating history as a standalone entity or management team as presently configured which results in a high degree of uncertainty regarding our ability to effectively operate our business.

 

Our limited staff, operating history as well as our recently appointed management team means that there is a high degree of uncertainty regarding our ability to:

 

  develop and commercialize our technologies and proposed products;
  identify, hire and retain the needed personnel to implement our business plan;
  manage growth; or
  respond to competition.

 

No assurances can be given as to exactly when, if at all, we will be able to develop our business or take the necessary steps to derive net income.

 

We may have difficulty in retaining employees given our current stock price, market capitalization, and the terms of our equity compensation plans.

 

Subsequent to the completion of the Share Exchange and the recent conversion of Series B Preferred Stock, as of May 11, 2021 the Company has 225,616,776,660 shares of Common Stock outstanding and a market capitalization of approximately $1 billion. The market capitalization is significantly higher than that of SRAX, the former parent corporation while it owned BIG Token as a wholly owned subsidiary. Accordingly, the market capitalization of the Company may not be indicative of its actual value. Furthermore, the Company may have difficulty in hiring new employees and retaining qualified employees as a result of our 2021 Equity Incentive Plan requirings stock grants to be issued at market value, which new or current employees may determine to be unattractive given our current valuation. Additionally, we are only authorized to issue 15,824,493,516 shares under our 2021 Equity Incentive Plan, which may be inadequate to issue grants needed to retain qualified personnel until January 1, 2022, where the number of shares under such plan will increase. Accordingly, our inability to attract or retain employees during this time may materially impact our business.

 

18
 

 

We may be required to expend significant capital to redeem BIGtoken Points which will negatively impact our ability to fund our core operations.

 

Users of BIGtoken receive points for undertaking certain actions on the platform that may be redeemed directly for cash from us, with such value as determined by management. Accordingly, we are currently obligated to redeem users’ points which are earned on BIGtoken. We are currently redeeming each point for up to $0.01, subject to the user meeting certain conditions. As of March 31, 2021, we recorded a contingent liability for future point redemptions equal to approximately $313,000 and we have redeemed an aggregate amount of approximately $1,016,000 as of May 27, 2021. As of March 31, 2021, we had approximately 16 million application downloads. There can be no assurance that we will have enough cash reserves, or if we do have sufficient cash, if we will be able to continue to fund our other business obligations and operational expenses.

 

If our efforts to attract and retain BIGtoken users are not successful, our number of users and the amount of data collected could fail to reach critical mass, grow or decline and our potential for BIGtoken to earn revenues may be materially affected.

 

We will be dependent on advertisers to pay us for access to user data. We must attract users to grow the amount of accessible data and make it attractive to these third parties. If the public does not perceive our mission or our services to be reliable, valuable or of high quality, we may not be able to attract or retain users and create a critical mass of data which will impact our ability to earn revenues which could have a materially adversely affected us.

 

Natural disasters, epidemic or pandemic disease outbreaks, trade wars, political unrest or other events could disrupt our business or operations or those of our development partners, manufacturers, regulators or other third parties with whom we conduct business now or in the future.

 

A wide variety of events beyond our control, including natural disasters, epidemic or pandemic disease outbreaks (such as the recent novel coronavirus outbreak), trade wars, political unrest or other events could disrupt our business or operations or those of our manufacturers, regulatory authorities, or other third parties with whom we conduct business. These events may cause businesses and government agencies to be shut down, supply chains to be interrupted, slowed, or rendered inoperable, and individuals to become ill, quarantined, or otherwise unable to work and/or travel due to health reasons or governmental restrictions. For example, California recently ordered most businesses closed, mandating work-from-home arrangements, where feasible, in response to the coronavirus pandemic. These limitations could negatively affect our business operations and continuity and could negatively impact our ability to timely perform basic business functions, including making SEC filings and preparing financial reports. If our operations or those of third parties with whom we have business are impaired or curtailed as a result of these events, the development and commercialization of our products and product candidates could be impaired or halted, which could have a material adverse impact on our business.

 

Challenges in acquiring user data could adversely affect our ability to retain and expand BIGtoken, and therefore could materially affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

In order to expand BIGtoken, we must continue to expend resources to make the submission of user data as user-friendly as possible. We, and our users, may face legal, logistical, cultural, and commercial challenges in procuring user data. Additionally, once such data is obtained, if the process for validation and collection of rewards may be perceived as too cumbersome and discourage potential users from submission. We may need to expend significant resources on user interfaces for evolving platforms, such as mobile devices. Inconveniences to our users or potential users at any stage of the process may materially challenge our growth.

 

If we fail to ensure that the user data derived from BIGtoken is of high quality, our ability to attract customers or monetize the data may be materially impaired.

 

The reliability of our user data depends upon the integrity and the quality of the process of accepting user data into BIGtoken. We will take certain measures to validate user data submitted by our users and potential users to assure a high quality of data in BIGtoken and generally confirming that data is submitted in accordance with our terms for such data. We must continue to invest in our quality control measures relating to BIGtoken in order to provide a high-quality product to potential customers.

 

If BIGtoken experiences an excessive rate of user attrition, our ability to attract customers could fail.

 

Users may elect to have their data deleted from BIGtoken at any time. We must continually add new users both to replace users who choose to delete their data and to increase our user base. Users may choose to delete their data for many reasons. If users are concerned about privacy and security and do not perceive BIGtoken to be reliable, if we fail to keep users engaged and interested in our application, or if we simply lose our users’ attention, we could fail to gather sufficient user data and our ability to earn revenues may be materially affected.

If we are unable to manage our marketing and advertising expenses, it could materially harm our results of operations and growth.

 

We plan to rely in part on our marketing and advertising efforts to attract new members. Our future growth and profitability, as well as the maintenance and enhancement of our brand, will depend in large part on the effectiveness and efficiency of our marketing and advertising strategies and expenditures. If we are unable to maintain our marketing and advertising channels on cost-effective terms, our marketing and advertising expenses could increase substantially, and our business, financial condition and results of operations may suffer. In addition, we may be required to incur significantly higher marketing and advertising expenses than we currently anticipate if excessive numbers of members withdraw their member data from our database.

 

Failure to comply with federal, state and local laws and regulations or our contractual obligations relating to data privacy, protection and security of BIGtoken user data, and civil liabilities relating to breaches of privacy and security of user data, could damage our reputation and harm our business.

 

A variety of federal, state and local laws and regulations govern the collection, use, retention, sharing and security of user data. We will collect BIGtoken user data from and about our members when they redeem rewards and maintain that date in our BIGtoken Application. Claims or allegations that we have violated applicable laws or regulations related to privacy, data protection or data security could in the future result in negative publicity and a loss of confidence in us by our users and potential new users and may subject us to fines and penalties by regulatory authorities. In addition, we have privacy policies and practices concerning the collection, use and disclosure of user data as part of our agreements with our members, including ones posted on our website. Several Internet companies have incurred penalties for failing to abide by the representations made in their privacy policies and practices. In addition, our use and retention of user data could lead to civil liability exposure in the event of any disclosure of such information due to hacking, malware, phishing, inadvertent action or other unauthorized use or disclosure. Several companies have been subject to civil actions, including class actions, relating to this exposure.

 

We have incurred, and will continue to incur, expenses to comply with data privacy, protection and security standards and protocols for BIGtoken user data imposed by law, regulation, self-regulatory bodies, industry standards and contractual obligations. Such laws, standards and regulations, however, are evolving and subject to potentially differing interpretations, and federal, state and provincial legislative and regulatory bodies may expand current or enact new laws or regulations regarding privacy matters. Additionally, we accept user from foreign countries which subjects us to the personal and other data privacy, protection and security laws of those countries, we are unable to predict what additional legislation, standards or regulation in the area of privacy and security of personal information could be enacted or its effect on our operations and business.

 

If we are unable to satisfy data privacy, protection, security, and other government- and industry-specific requirements, our growth could be harmed.

 

We need or may in the future need to comply with a number of data protection, security, privacy and other government- and industry-specific requirements, including those that require companies to notify individuals of data security incidents involving certain types of personal data. Security compromises could harm our reputation, erode user confidence in the effectiveness of our security measures, negatively impact our ability to attract new members, or cause existing users to withdraw their data from BIGtoken.

Regulatory, legislative or self-regulatory developments regarding internet privacy matters could adversely affect our ability to conduct our business.

 

The United States and foreign governments have enacted, considered or are considering legislation or regulations that could significantly restrict our ability to collect, process, use, transfer and pool data collected from and about consumers and devices. Trade associations and industry self-regulatory groups have also promulgated best practices and other industry standards relating to targeted advertising. Various U.S. and foreign governments, self-regulatory bodies and public advocacy groups have called for new regulations specifically directed at the digital advertising industry, and we expect to see an increase in legislation, regulation and self-regulation in this area. The legal, regulatory and judicial environment we face around privacy and other matters is constantly evolving and can be subject to significant change. For example, the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, which was agreed by E.U. institutions in 2016 and came into effect after a two-year transition period on May 25, 2018, updated and modernized the principles of the 1995 Data Protection Directive and significantly increases the level of sanctions for non-compliance. Data Protection Authorities will have the power to impose administrative fines of up to a maximum of €20 million or 4% of the data controller’s or data processor’s total worldwide turnover of the preceding financial year. Similarly, the E-Privacy Regulation, which was launched by the European Parliament in October 2016, could result in, once enacted, new rules and mechanisms for “cookie” consent. In addition, the interpretation and application of data protection laws in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere are often uncertain and in flux. Legislative and regulatory authorities around the world may decide to enact additional legislation or regulations, which could reduce the amount of data we can collect or process and, as a result, significantly impact our business. Similarly, clarifications of and changes to these existing and proposed laws, regulations, judicial interpretations and industry standards can be costly to comply with, and we may be unable to pass along those costs to our clients in the form of increased fees, which may negatively affect our operating results. Such changes can also delay or impede the development of new solutions, result in negative publicity and reputational harm, require significant incremental management time and attention, increase our risk of non-compliance and subject us to claims or other remedies, including fines or demands that we modify or cease existing business practices, including our ability to charge per click or the scope of clicks for which we charge. Additionally, any perception of our practices or solutions as an invasion of privacy, whether or not such practices or solutions are consistent with current or future regulations and industry practices, may subject us to public criticism, private class actions, reputational harm or claims by regulators, which could disrupt our business and expose us to increased liability. Finally, our legal and financial exposure often depends in part on our clients’ or other third parties’ adherence to privacy laws and regulations and their use of our services in ways consistent with visitors’ expectations. We rely on representations made to us by clients that they will comply with all applicable laws, including all relevant privacy and data protection regulations. We make reasonable efforts to enforce such representations and contractual requirements, but we do not fully audit our clients’ compliance with our recommended disclosures or their adherence to privacy laws and regulations. If our clients fail to adhere to our contracts in this regard, or a court or governmental agency determines that we have not adequately, accurately or completely described our own solutions, services and data collection, use and sharing practices in our own disclosures to consumers, then we and our clients may be subject to potentially adverse publicity, damages and related possible investigation or other regulatory activity in connection with our privacy practices or those of our clients.

 

Privacy concerns could damage our reputation and deter current and potential users from contributing additional data through our BIGtoken Application. If our security measures are breached resulting in the improper use and disclosure of user data, BIGtoken may be perceived as not being secure, users and customers may curtail or stop using BIGtoken, and we may incur significant legal and financial exposure.

 

Concerns about our practices with regard to the collection, use, disclosure, or security of user data or other privacy related matters, even if unfounded, could damage our reputation and adversely affect our operating results. Our services will involve the purchase, storage, transmission and sale of user data, and theft and security breaches expose us to a risk of loss of this information, improper use and disclosure of such information, litigation, and potential liability. Any systems failure or compromise of our security that results in the release of user data, or in our or our users’ ability to access such data, could seriously harm our reputation and brand and, therefore, our business, and impair our ability to attract and retain users. Additionally, if user data is somehow made public or made available through a security breach, it may be used to identify our users and people related thereto. We may experience cyber attacks of varying degrees. Our security measures may also be breached due to employee error, malfeasance, system errors or vulnerabilities, including vulnerabilities of our vendors, suppliers, their products, or otherwise. Such breach or unauthorized access, increased government surveillance, or attempts by outside parties to fraudulently induce employees, users, or customers to disclose sensitive information in order to gain access to user data could result in significant legal and financial exposure, damage to our reputation, and a loss of confidence in the security of BIGtoken that could potentially have an adverse effect on our business. Because the techniques used to obtain unauthorized access, disable or degrade service, or sabotage systems change frequently, become more sophisticated, and often are not recognized until launched against a target, we may be unable to anticipate these techniques or to implement adequate preventative measures. Additionally, cyber attacks could also compromise trade secrets and other sensitive information and result in such information being disclosed to others and becoming less valuable, which could negatively affect our business. If an actual or perceived breach of our security occurs, the market perception of the effectiveness of our security measures could be harmed and we could lose members and customers.

 

21
 

 

Our business is subject to complex and evolving U.S. and foreign laws and regulations regarding privacy, data protection, content, competition, consumer protection, and other matters. Many of these laws and regulations are subject to change and uncertain interpretation, and could result in claims, changes to our business practices, monetary penalties, increased cost of operations, or declines in user growth or engagement, or otherwise harm our business.

 

We are subject to a variety of laws and regulations in the United States and abroad that involve matters central to our business, such as privacy, data protection and personal information, rights of publicity, content, intellectual property, advertising, marketing, distribution, data security, data retention and deletion, electronic contracts and other communications, competition, protection of minors, consumer protection, taxation and securities law compliance. Expansion of our activities in certain jurisdictions, or other actions that we may take, may subject us to additional laws, regulations, or other government scrutiny. In addition, foreign data protection, privacy, content, competition, and other laws and regulations can impose different obligations or be more restrictive than those in the United States.

 

Additionally, as we allow European users, we are subject to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective as of May 2018. The GDPR increases privacy rights for individuals in Europe, extends the scope of responsibilities for data controllers and data processors and imposes increased requirements and potential penalties on companies offering goods or services to individuals who are located in Europe or monitoring the behavior of such individuals (including by companies based outside of Europe). Noncompliance can result in penalties of up to the greater of €20 million, or 4% of global company revenues.

 

These U.S. federal and state and foreign laws and regulations, which in some cases can be enforced by private parties in addition to government authorities, are constantly evolving and can be subject to significant change. As a result, the application, interpretation, and enforcement of these laws and regulations are often uncertain, particularly in the newer industry in which we operate, and may be interpreted and applied inconsistently from country to country and inconsistently with our current policies and practices.

 

These laws and regulations, as well as any associated inquiries or investigations or any other government actions, may be costly to comply with and may delay or impede our international growth, result in negative publicity, increase our operating costs, require significant management time and attention, and subject us to remedies that may harm our business.

 

Security breaches and improper access to or disclosure of our data or user data, or other hacking and phishing attacks on our systems, could harm our reputation and adversely affect our business.

 

Our industry is prone to cyber-attacks by third parties seeking unauthorized access to our data or users’ data or to disrupt our ability to provide service. Any failure to prevent or mitigate security breaches and improper access to or disclosure of our data or user data, including personal information, content, or payment information from or to users, or information from marketers, could result in the loss or misuse of such data, which could harm our business and reputation and diminish our competitive position. In addition, computer malware, viruses, social engineering (predominantly spear phishing attacks), and general hacking have become more prevalent in our industry. Our BIGtoken platform has experienced an increase in the occurrence of such attempts, and we cannot be assured that we will be able to prevent a successful attack on our systems in the future. We also regularly encounter attempts to create false or undesirable user accounts or take other actions on our BIGtoken platform for purposes such as spreading misinformation, attempting to have us improperly purchase user data or other objectionable ends. As a result of recent attention and growth of our BIGtoken platform, the size of our user base, and the types and volume of personal data on our systems, we believe that we are a particularly attractive target for such breaches and attacks. Our efforts to address undesirable activity may also increase the risk of retaliatory attacks. Such attacks may cause interruptions to the services we provide, degrade the user experience, cause users or marketers to lose confidence and trust in our products, impair our internal systems, or result in financial harm to us. Our efforts to protect our company data or the information we receive may also be unsuccessful due to software bugs or other technical malfunctions; employee, contractor, or vendor error or malfeasance; government surveillance; or other threats that evolve. In addition, third parties may attempt to fraudulently induce employees or users to disclose information in order to gain access to our data or our users’ data. Cyber-attacks continue to evolve in sophistication and volume, and inherently may be difficult to detect for long periods of time. Although we are currently in the process of developing systems and processes that are designed to protect our data and user data, to prevent data loss, to disable undesirable accounts and activities on our BIGtoken platform, and to prevent or detect security breaches, we cannot assure you that such measures will ultimately become operational or provide absolute security, and we may incur significant costs in protecting against or remediating cyber-attacks.

 

22
 

 

Affected users or government authorities could initiate legal or regulatory actions against us in connection with any actual or perceived security breaches or improper disclosure of data, which could cause us to incur significant expense and liability or result in orders or consent decrees forcing us to modify our business practices, especially with regard to the BIGtoken platform. Such incidents or our efforts to remediate such incidents may also result in a decline in our active user base or engagement levels. Any of these events could have a material and adverse effect on our business, reputation, or financial results.

 

Certain user data must be provided on a recurring basis in order to provide full value.

 

Certain types of user data will need to be contributed by users recurrently for such data to provide full value to our potential customers. If users fail to provide us with sufficient recurring data, the value of the user data may substantially decrease and our ability to earn revenues may be materially affected.

 

Unfavorable media coverage could negatively affect our business.

 

Unfavorable publicity regarding, for example, our privacy practices, terms of service, regulatory activity, the actions of third parties, the use of our products or services for illicit, objectionable, or illegal ends or the actions of other companies that provide similar services to us, could adversely affect our reputation. Such negative publicity also could have an adverse effect on the size, engagement, and loyalty of our user base and result in user attrition which could adversely affect our business and financial results.

 

Weak economic conditions may reduce consumer demand for products and services.

 

A weak economy in the United States could adversely affect demand for advertising products, and services. A substantial portion of our revenue is derived from businesses that are highly dependent on discretionary spending by individuals, which typically falls during times of economic instability. Accordingly, the ability of our advertisers to increase or maintain revenue and earnings could be adversely affected to the extent that relevant economic environments remain weak or decline further. We currently are unable to predict the extent of any of these potential adverse effects.

 

Because we store, process and use data, some of which contain personal information, we are subject to complex and evolving federal, state and foreign laws and regulations regarding privacy, data protection and other matters, which are subject to change.

 

We are subject to a variety of laws and regulations in the United States and other countries that involve matters central to our business, including with respect to user privacy, rights of publicity, data protection, content, protection of minors and consumer protection. These laws can be particularly restrictive in countries outside the United States. Both in the United States and abroad, these laws and regulations constantly evolve and remain subject to significant change. In addition, the application and interpretation of these laws and regulations are often uncertain, particularly in the new and rapidly evolving industry in which we operate. Because we store, process and use data, some of which contain personal information, we are subject to complex and evolving federal, state and foreign laws and regulations regarding privacy, data protection and other matters. Many of these laws and regulations are subject to change and uncertain interpretation and could result in investigations, claims, changes to our business practices, increased cost of operations and declines in user growth, retention or engagement, any of which could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

Several proposals are pending before federal, state and foreign legislative and regulatory bodies that could significantly affect our business. For example, a revision to the 1995 European Union Data Protection Directive is currently being considered by European legislative bodies that may include more stringent operational requirements for data processors and significant penalties for non-compliance. In addition, the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”), which came into effect on May 25, 2018, establishes new requirements applicable to the processing of personal data ( i.e. , data which identifies an individual or from which an individual is identifiable), affords new data protection rights to individuals ( e.g. , the right to erasure of personal data) and imposes penalties for serious data breaches. Individuals also have a right to compensation under GDPR for financial or non-financial losses. GDPR will impose additional responsibility and liability in relation to our processing of personal data. GDPR may require us to change our policies and procedures and, if we are not compliant, could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

23
 

 

If advertising on the Internet loses its appeal, our revenue could decline.

 

Our business model may not continue to be effective in the future for a number of reasons, including:

 

  a decline in the rates that we can charge for advertising and promotional activities;
     
  our inability to create applications for our customers;
     
  Internet advertisements and promotions are, by their nature, limited in content relative to other media;
     
  companies may be reluctant or slow to adopt online advertising and promotional activities that replace, limit or compete with their existing direct marketing efforts;
     
  companies may prefer other forms of Internet advertising and promotions that we do not offer;
     
  the quality or placement of transactions, including the risk of non-screened, non-human inventory and traffic, could cause a loss in customers or revenue; and
     
  regulatory actions may negatively impact our business practices.

 

If the number of companies who purchase online advertising and promotional services from us does not grow, we may experience difficulty in attracting publishers, and our revenue could decline.

 

Our stock price may be volatile and your investment in our common stock could suffer a decline in value.

 

There has been significant volatility in the market price and trading volume of securities of technology and other companies, which may be unrelated to the financial performance of these companies. These broad market fluctuations may negatively affect the market price of our common stock.

 

Some specific factors that may have a significant effect on the market price of our common stock include:

 

  actual or anticipated fluctuations in our results of operations or our competitors’ operating results;
     
  actual or anticipated changes in the growth rate of the connected lifestyle market, our growth rates or our competitors’ growth rates;
     
  conditions in the financial markets in general or changes in general economic conditions;
     
  changes in governmental regulation, including taxation and tariff policies;
     
  interest rate or currency rate fluctuations;
     
  our ability to forecast accurate financial results; and
     
  changes in stock market analyst recommendations regarding our common stock, other comparable companies or our industry generally

 

We rely upon third parties for technology that is critical to our products, and if we are unable to continue to use this technology and future technology, our ability to develop, sell, maintain and support technologically innovative products would be limited.

 

We rely on third parties to obtain non-exclusive patented hardware and software license rights in technologies that are incorporated into and necessary for the operation and functionality of most of our products. In these cases, because the intellectual property we license is available from third parties, barriers to entry into certain markets may be lower for potential or existing competitors than if we owned exclusive rights to the technology that we license and use. Moreover, if a competitor or potential competitor enters into an exclusive arrangement with any of our key third-party technology providers, or if any of these providers unilaterally decides not to do business with us for any reason, our ability to develop and sell products and services containing that technology would be severely limited.

 

24
 

 

If we are offering products or services that contain third-party technology that we subsequently lose the right to license, then we will not be able to continue to offer or support those products or services. In addition, these licenses may require royalty payments or other consideration to the third-party licensor. Our success will depend, in part, on our continued ability to access these technologies, and we do not know whether these third-party technologies will continue to be licensed to us on commercially acceptable terms, if at all. In addition, if these third-party licensors fail or experience instability, then we may be unable to continue to sell products and services that incorporate the licensed technologies, in addition to being unable to continue to maintain and support these products and services. We do require escrow arrangements with respect to certain third-party software which entitle us to certain limited rights to the source code, in the event of certain failures by the third party, in order to maintain and support such software. However, there is no guarantee that we would be able to fully understand and use the source code, as we may not have the expertise to do so. We are increasingly exposed to these risks as we continue to develop and market more products containing third-party technology and software. If we are unable to license the necessary technology, we may be forced to acquire or develop alternative technology, which could be of lower quality or performance standards. The acquisition or development of alternative technology may limit and delay our ability to offer new or competitive products and services and increase our costs of production. As a result, our business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected.

 

The development of our operations and infrastructure in connection with our separation from SRAX, and any future expansion of such operations and infrastructure, may not be successful, and may strain our operations and increase our operating expenses.

 

In connection with our separation from SRAX, we have begun to implement a new information technology infrastructure for our business, which includes the creation of management information systems and operational and financial controls unique to our business. We may not be able to put in place adequate controls in an efficient and timely manner in connection with our separation from SRAX and as our business grows, and our current systems may not be adequate to support our future operations. The difficulties associated with installing and implementing new systems, procedures and controls may place a significant burden on our management and operational and financial resources. In addition, as we grow internationally, we will have to expand and enhance our communications infrastructure. If we fail to continue to improve our management information systems, procedures and financial controls, or encounter unexpected difficulties during expansion and reorganization, our business could be harmed.

 

For example, we plan to invest significant capital and human resources in the design, development and enhancement of our financial and operational systems. We will depend on these systems in order to timely and accurately process and report key components of our results of operations, financial condition and cash flows. If the systems fail to operate appropriately or we experience any disruptions or delays in enhancing their functionality to meet current business requirements, fulfil contractual obligations, accurately report our financials and otherwise run our business could be adversely affected. Even if we do not encounter these adverse effects, the development and enhancement of systems may be much more costly than we anticipated. If we are unable to continue to develop and enhance our information technology systems as planned, our business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected.

 

As part of growing our business, we may make acquisitions. If we fail to successfully select, execute or integrate our acquisitions, then our business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected and our stock price could decline.

 

From time to time, we may undertake acquisitions to add new product and service lines and technologies, acquire talent, gain new sales channels or enter into new sales territories. Acquisitions involve numerous risks and challenges, including relating to the successful integration of the acquired business, entering into new territories or markets with which we have limited or no prior experience, establishing or maintaining business relationships with new retailers, distributors or other channel partners, vendors and suppliers and potential post-closing disputes.

 

We cannot ensure that we will be successful in selecting, executing and integrating acquisitions. Failure to manage and successfully integrate acquisitions could materially harm our business, financial condition and results of operations. In addition, if stock market analysts or our stockholders do not support or believe in the value of the acquisitions that we choose to undertake, our stock price may decline.

Risks Related to Our Separation from SRAX

 

We may not be successful as stand-alone entity.

 

Pursuant to the completion of the Share Exchange, we became a stand-alone public company, although we will continue to be controlled by SRAX as long as they own a significant amount of our securities. The process of becoming a stand-alone public company is complex and may distract our management from focusing on our business and strategic priorities. Further, although we expect to have direct access to the debt and equity capital, we may not be able to issue debt or equity on terms acceptable to us or at all. Moreover, even with equity compensation tied to our business, we may not be able to attract and retain employees as desired.

 

We also may not fully realize the intended benefits of being a stand-alone public company if any of the risks identified in this “Risk Factors” section, or other events, were to occur. These intended benefits include improving the strategic and operational flexibility of our Company, increasing the focus of our management teams on our business operations, allowing our company to adopt the capital structure, investment policy and dividend policy best suited to its financial profile and business needs, and providing our Company with its own equity currency to facilitate acquisitions and to better incentivize management. If we do not realize these intended benefits for any reason, our business may be negatively affected. In addition, the separation could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

As long as SRAX controls us, the ability of our other shareholders to influence matters requiring stockholder approval will be limited.

 

As a result of the Share Exchange, SRAX currently owns 149,562,566,584 shares of our common stock and 5,000,000 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock, representing voting power of approximately 63% of our issued and outstanding capital stock as of May 11, 2021. For so long as SRAX beneficially owns shares of our outstanding securities representing at least a majority of the votes entitled to be cast by the holders of our outstanding securities, SRAX will be able to elect all of the members of our board of directors and influence other voting matters.

 

SRAX’s ability to control our board of directors may make it difficult for us to recruit high-quality independent directors.

 

So long as SRAX beneficially owns shares of our outstanding securities representing at least a majority of the votes entitled to be cast by the holders of our outstanding shares, SRAX can effectively control and direct our board of directors. Further, the interests of SRAX and our other stockholders may diverge. Under these circumstances, persons who might otherwise accept our invitation to join our board of directors may decline.

 

SRAX’s interests may conflict with our interests and the interests of our other stockholders. Conflicts of interest between us and SRAX could be resolved in a manner unfavorable to us and our other stockholders.

 

Various conflicts of interest between us and SRAX could arise. The ownership interest and voting power of SRAX in our capital stock and ownership interests of our directors and officers in SRAX capital stock, or service by an individual as either a director and/or officer of both companies, could create or appear to create potential conflicts of interest when such individuals are faced with decisions relating to us. These decisions could include:

 

  corporate opportunities;
     
  the impact that operating or capital decisions (including the incurrence of indebtedness) relating to our business may have on SRAX’s consolidated financial statements and/or current or future indebtedness (including related covenants);
     
  business combinations involving us;
     
  our dividend and stock repurchase policies;
     
  compensation and benefit programs and other human resources policy decisions;
     
  management stock ownership;
     
  the intercompany agreements and services between us and SRAX, including the agreements relating to our separation from SRAX;
     
  the payment of dividends on our common stock; and
     
  determinations with respect to our tax returns.

 

26
 

 

Potential conflicts of interest could also arise if we decide to enter into new commercial arrangements with SRAX in the future or in connection with SRAX’s desire to enter into new commercial arrangements with third parties. Additionally, we may be constrained by the terms of agreements relating to our indebtedness or equity securities from taking actions, or permitting us to take actions, that may be in our best interest.

 

Furthermore, disputes may arise between us and SRAX relating to our past and ongoing relationships, and these potential conflicts of interest may make it more difficult for us to favorably resolve such disputes, including those related to:

 

  tax, employee benefit, indemnification and other matters arising from the separation;
     
  the nature, quality and pricing of services SRAX agrees to provide to us; and
     
  sales and other disposals by SRAX of all or a portion of its ownership interest in us.

 

We may not be able to resolve any potential conflicts, and even if we do, the resolution may be less favorable to us than if we were dealing with an unaffiliated third party. While we are controlled by SRAX, we may not have the leverage to negotiate amendments to our various agreements with SRAX (if any are required) on terms as favorable to us as those we would negotiate with an unaffiliated third party.

 

The terms of the agreements that we entered into with SRAX in connection with the separation may limit our ability to take certain actions which may prevent us from pursuing opportunities to raise capital, acquire other businesses or provide equity incentives to our employees, which could impair our ability to grow.

 

The terms of the agreements that we entered into with SRAX in connection with the separation, including the MSA, may limit our ability to take certain actions, which could impair our ability to grow. The MSA provides that, as long as SRAX beneficially owns at least 50% of the total voting power of our outstanding capital stock entitled to vote in the election of our board of directors, we will not (without SRAX’s prior written consent) take certain actions, such as incurring additional indebtedness and acquiring businesses or assets or disposing of assets in excess of certain amounts.

 

We have a very limited operating history as a stand-alone public company and our historical and carve-out financial information is not necessarily representative of the results we would have achieved as a stand-alone public company and may not be a reliable indicator of our future results.

 

The historical financial information we have included in this Quarterly Report does not reflect, what our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows would have been had we been a stand-alone entity during the historical periods presented, or what our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows will be in the future as an independent entity.

 

In addition, we have not made pro forma adjustments to reflect many significant changes that will occur in our cost structure, funding and operations as a result of our transition to becoming a public company, including changes in our employee base, potential increased costs associated with reduced economies of scale and increased costs associated with being a publicly traded, stand-alone company.

 

If SRAX experiences a change in control, our current plans and strategies could be subject to change.

 

As long as SRAX controls us, it will have significant influence over our plans and strategies, including strategies relating to marketing and growth. In the event SRAX experiences a change in control, SRAX’s incumbent owner(s) may attempt to cause us to revise or change our plans and strategies, as well as the agreements between SRAX and us, described in this Quarterly Report.

 

The assets and resources that we acquired from SRAX in the separation may not be sufficient for us to operate as a stand-alone company, and we may experience difficulty in separating our assets and resources from SRAX.

 

Because we have not operated as an independent company for a long period of time, we will need to acquire assets in addition to those contributed by SRAX and its subsidiaries to us and our subsidiaries in connection with our separation from SSRAX. Although certain assets have been separated and we have been operating as a stand-alone entity since the completion of the Share Exchange, we may also face difficulty in separating certain assets from SRAX’s assets and integrating newly acquired assets into our business. Our business, financial condition and results of operations could be harmed if we fail to acquire assets that prove to be important to our operations or if we incur unexpected costs in separating our assets from SRAX’s assets or integrating newly acquired assets.

 

27
 

 

The services that SRAX provides to us may not be sufficient to meet our needs, which may result in increased costs and otherwise adversely affect our business.

 

Pursuant to the TSA, we expect SRAX to continue to provide us with corporate and shared services for a transitional period related to corporate functions, such as executive oversight, risk management, information technology, accounting, audit, legal, investor relations, tax, treasury, shared facilities, operations, customer support, human resources and employee benefits, sales and sales operations and other services in exchange for the fees specified in the TSA between us and SRAX. SRAX will not be obligated to provide these services in a manner that differs from the nature of the services provided to the BIGtoken business during the 12-month period prior to the separation, and thus we may not be able to modify these services in a manner desirable to us as a stand-alone public company. Further, if we no longer receive these services from SRAX due to the termination of the TSA or otherwise, we may not be able to perform these services ourselves and/or find appropriate third-party arrangements at a reasonable cost (and any such costs may be higher than those charged by SRAX).

 

Our ability to operate our business effectively may suffer if we are unable to cost-effectively establish our own administrative and other support functions in order to operate as a stand-alone company after the termination of our shared services and other intercompany agreements with SRAX.

 

As an operating segment of SRAX, we relied on administrative and other resources of SRAX, including information technology, accounting, finance, human resources and legal services, to operate our business. Upon completion of the Share Exchange, we have entered into various service agreements to retain the ability for specified periods to use these SRAX resources. While certain service shave been implemented efficiently, there is no guarantee that all services or future services may be provided at the same level as when we were a business segment within SRAX, and we may not be able to obtain the same benefits that we received prior to becoming a stand-alone company. These services may not be sufficient to meet our needs, and after our agreements with SRAX terminates, we may not be able to replace these services at all or obtain these services at prices and on terms as favorable as we currently have with SRAX. We will need to create our own administrative and other support systems or contract with third parties to replace SRAX’s systems. In addition, we have received informal support from SRAX, which may not be addressed in the agreements we have entered into with SRAX, and the level of this informal support may diminish as we become a more independent company. Any failure or significant downtime in our own administrative systems or in SRAX’S administrative systems during the transitional period could result in unexpected costs, impact our results and/or prevent us from paying our suppliers or employees and performing other administrative services on a timely basis.

 

We are a smaller company relative to SRAX, which could result in increased costs and decreased revenue due to difficulty maintaining existing customer relationships and obtaining new customers.

 

Prior to the completion of the Share Exchange with SRAX, we were able to take advantage of SRAX’s size, technology and services, including insurance, employee benefit support and audit and other professional services. We are a smaller company than SRAX and we cannot assure you that we will have access to financial and other resources comparable to those available to us prior to the completion of the Share Exchange. As a stand-alone company, we may be unable to obtain office space, goods, technology and services in general, as well as components and services that are part of our supply chain, at prices or on terms as favorable as those available to us prior the completion of the Share Exchange, which could increase our costs and reduce our profitability. Our future success depends on our ability to maintain our current relationships with existing customers, and we may have difficulty attracting new customers.

 

SRAX has agreed to indemnify us for certain liabilities. However, we cannot assure that the indemnity will be sufficient to insure us against the full amount of such liabilities, or that SRAX’s ability to satisfy its indemnification obligation will not be impaired in the future.

 

Pursuant to the MSA and certain other agreements with SRAX, SRAX has agreed to indemnify us for certain liabilities. The MSA provides for cross-indemnities principally designed to place financial responsibility for the obligations and liabilities of our business with us and financial responsibility for the obligations and liabilities of SRAX’s business with SRAX.

 

28
 

 

However, third parties could also seek to hold us responsible for any of the liabilities that SRAX has agreed to retain, and we cannot assure that an indemnity from SRAX will be sufficient to protect us against the full amount of such liabilities, or that SRAX will be able to fully satisfy its indemnification obligations in the future. Even if we ultimately succeed in recovering from SRAX any amounts for which we are held liable, we may be temporarily required to bear these losses. Each of these risks could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

Some of our directors and officers own SRAX common stock, restricted shares of SRAX common stock or options to acquire SRAX common stock and hold positions with SRAX, which could cause conflicts of interest, or the appearance of conflicts of interest, that result in our not acting on opportunities we otherwise may have.

 

Some of our directors and executive officers own SRAX common stock, restricted shares of SRAX stock or options to purchase SRAX common stock.

 

Ownership of SRAX common stock, restricted shares of SRAX common stock and options to purchase SRAX common stock by our directors and executive officers, and the presence of executive officers or directors of SRAX on our board of directors could create, or appear to create, conflicts of interest with respect to matters involving both us and SRAX that could have different implications for SRAX than they do for us. For example, potential conflicts of interest could arise in connection with the resolution of any dispute between SRAX and us regarding terms of the agreements governing the separation and the relationship between SRAX and us thereafter, including the MSA or the transition services agreement. Potential conflicts of interest could also arise if we enter into commercial arrangements with SRAX in the future. As a result of these actual or apparent conflicts of interest, we may be precluded from pursuing certain growth initiatives.

 

We may have received better terms from unaffiliated third parties than the terms we will receive in the agreements that we entered with SRAX.

 

The agreements that we entered into with SRAX in connection with the separation, including the MSA and the TSA were prepared in the context of the separation while we were still a wholly owned subsidiary of SRAX.

 

Ownership of Our Securities

 

Sales of a substantial number of shares of our common stock in the public market could cause our stock price to fall.

 

On January 27, 2021, we entered into the Debt Exchange Agreement with Red Diamond. Pursuant to the Debt Exchange Agreement, we issued Red Diamond 7,000,000,000 free trading shares of Common Stock or approximately 837% of the prior public float of 841,184,289. We also issued Red Diamond 8,313 shares of Series C Preferred Stock, convertible into approximately 12,864,419,313 shares of Common Stock. Although Red Diamond agreed to a leak out of 20% of average daily volume for the five trading days preceding the sale, this will still result in a significant number of shares compared to our prior public float and will be difficult to monitor compliance. Sales of a substantial number of such shares now and upon expiration of the leak-out period or the perception that such sales may occur, could cause our market price to fall or make it more difficult for you to sell your common stock at a time and price that you deem appropriate.

 

Our stock price is extremely volatile, which may result in you losing a significant part of your investment.

 

The market price of our common stock is influenced by many factors, some of which are beyond our control, including those described in this Risk Factors section and include the following:

 

  the failure of securities analysts to cover our common stock after this offering or changes in financial estimates by analysts;
     
  the inability to meet the financial estimates of securities analysts who follow our common stock or changes in earnings estimates by analysts;
     
  strategic actions by us or our competitors;
     
  announcements by us or our competitors of significant contracts, acquisitions, joint marketing relationships, joint ventures or capital commitments;

 

29
 

 

  our quarterly or annual earnings, or those of other companies in our industry;
     
  actual or anticipated fluctuations in our operating results and those of our competitors;
     
  general economic and stock market conditions;
     
  the public reaction to our press releases, our other public announcements and our filings with the SEC;
     
  risks related to our business and our industry, including those discussed above;
     
  changes in conditions or trends in our industry, markets or customers;
     
  the trading volume of our common stock;
     
  future sales of our common stock or other securities;
     
  investor perceptions of the investment opportunity associated with our common stock relative to other investment alternatives.

 

In particular, the realization of any of the risks described in these “Risk Factors” could have a material adverse impact on the market price of our common stock in the future and cause the value of your investment to decline. In addition, the stock market in general has experienced extreme volatility that has often been unrelated to the operating performance of particular companies. These broad market and industry factors may materially reduce the market price of our common stock, regardless of our operating performance. In addition, price volatility may be greater if the public float and trading volume of our common stock is low.

 

We have never paid a cash dividend and do not intend to pay cash dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future.

 

We have never paid a cash dividend, nor do we anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. Accordingly, any return on your investment will be as a result of the appreciation of our common stock if any.

 

Future sales, or the perception of future sales, of our common stock, including by SRAX, may depress the price of our common stock.

 

The market price of our common stock could decline significantly as a result of sales or other distributions of a large number of shares of our common stock in the market, including shares that might be offered for sale or distributed by SRAX. The perception that these sales might occur could depress the market price of our common stock. These sales, or the possibility that these sales may occur, also might make it more difficult for us to sell equity securities in the future at a time and at a price that we deem appropriate. As a result of the Share Exchange, we issued SRAX 149,562,566,584 shares of common stock. We further issued 68,583,866,100 shares of Common Stock upon conversion of Series B Preferred Stock sold in March and April of 2021. Although we raised approximately $4,800,000 in March and April of 2021 through the sale of our Series B Preferred Stock, as we are currently not cash flow positive, we will be required to raise additional significant capital in the future through the sale of our debt and equity securities. Also, in the future, we may issue our securities in connection acquisitions. The amount of shares of our common stock issued in connection with an investment or acquisition could constitute a material portion of our then-outstanding shares of our common stock. The sale of these shares into the market could greatly depress the market price of our common stock.

 

Our costs will increase significantly as a result of operating as a public company, and our management will be required to devote substantial time to complying with public company regulations.

 

We have historically operated our business as a segment of a public company. As a stand-alone public company, we now have additional legal, accounting, insurance, compliance and other expenses that we have not incurred historically. Subsequent to the closing of the Share Exchange, we became obligated to file with the SEC annual and quarterly reports and other reports that are specified in Section 13 and other sections of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). We are also be required to ensure that we have the ability to prepare financial statements that are fully compliant with all SEC reporting requirements on a timely basis. In addition, we will become subject to other reporting and corporate governance requirements, including certain provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (“Sarbanes-Oxley”) and the regulations promulgated thereunder, which impose significant compliance obligations upon us.

 

30
 

 

Sarbanes-Oxley, as well as rules subsequently implemented by the SEC, have imposed increased regulation and disclosure and required enhanced corporate governance practices of public companies. We are committed to maintaining a high standard of public disclosure, and our efforts to comply with evolving laws, regulations and standards in this regard are likely to result in increased selling and administrative expenses and a diversion of management’s time and attention from revenue-generating activities to compliance activities. These changes will require a significant commitment of additional resources. We may not be successful in implementing these requirements and implementing them could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition. In addition, if we fail to implement the requirements with respect to our internal accounting and audit functions, our ability to report our operating results on a timely and accurate basis could be impaired. If we do not implement such requirements in a timely manner or with adequate compliance, we might be subject to sanctions or investigation by regulatory authorities, such as the SEC. Any such action could harm our reputation and the confidence of investors and customers in us and could materially adversely affect our business and cause our share price to fall.

 

Failure to achieve and maintain effective internal controls in accordance with Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations, financial condition and stock price.

 

As a public company, we are required to document and test our internal control procedures in order to satisfy the requirements of Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley (“Section 404”), which requires management assessments of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting. Additionally, an annual report by our independent registered public accounting firm that addresses the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting is required. During the course of our testing, we may identify deficiencies which we may not be able to remediate in time to meet our deadline for compliance with Section 404. Testing and maintaining internal control can divert our management’s attention from other matters that are important to the operation of our business. We also expect the regulations under Sarbanes-Oxley to increase our legal and financial compliance costs, make it more difficult to attract and retain qualified officers and members of our board of directors, and make some activities more difficult, time consuming and costly. We may not be able to conclude on an ongoing basis that we have effective internal control over our financial reporting in accordance with Section 404 or our independent registered public accounting firm may not be able or willing to issue an unqualified report on the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting. If we conclude that our internal control over financial reporting is not effective, we cannot be certain as to the timing of completion of our evaluation, testing and remediation actions or their effect on our operations because there is presently no precedent available by which to measure compliance adequacy. If either we are unable to conclude that we have effective internal control over our financial reporting or, if required under SEC rules, our independent auditors are unable to provide us with an unqualified report as required by Section 404, then investors could lose confidence in our reported financial information, which could have a negative effect on the trading price of our stock.

 

If securities or industry analysts do not publish research or reports about our business, if they adversely change their recommendations regarding our stock or if our operating results do not meet their expectations, our stock price could decline.

 

The trading market for our common stock can be influenced by the research and reports that industry or securities analysts publish about us or our business. If one or more of these analysts cease coverage of us or fail to publish reports on us regularly, we could lose visibility in the financial markets, which in turn could cause our stock price or trading volume to decline. Moreover, if one or more of the analysts who cover us downgrades our stock or if our operating results do not meet their expectations, our stock price could decline.

 

We could be subject to securities class action litigation.

 

In the past, securities class action litigation has often been instituted against companies whose securities have experienced periods of volatility and decline in market price. Recently, we have seen the price of our Common Stock decline from approximately $0.10 to less than $0.01, a decline of approximately 90%. Securities litigation brought against us following such decline in the price of our common stock is likely regardless of the merit or ultimate results of such litigation. Such litigation will result in substantial costs, which would hurt our financial condition and results of operations and divert management’s attention and resources from our business.

 

31
 

 

Your percentage ownership may be diluted in the future.

 

In the future, your percentage ownership may be diluted because of our need to raise additional capital, the conversion of outstanding convertible securities and the granting of equity awards to our directors, officers and employees or otherwise as a result of equity issuances for acquisitions or capital market transactions. We anticipate granting equity awards to our employees and directors. In addition, we have outstanding a number of securities that are convertible into shares of our common stock. Upon conversion, you will experience substantial dilution.

 

In addition, our Articles of Incorporation authorize us to issue, without the approval of our stockholders, one or more classes or series of preferred stock having such designation, powers, preferences and relative, participating, optional and other special rights, including preferences over our common stock respecting dividends and distributions, as our board of directors generally may determine. The terms of one or more classes or series of preferred stock could dilute the voting power or reduce the value of our Common Stock. For example, the Company could grant the holders of preferred stock the right to elect some number of our directors in all events or on the happening of specified events or the right to veto specified transactions.

 

We are a smaller reporting company and as a result have certain reduced disclosure requirements.

 

We are a “smaller reporting company” as defined in the Securities Act, as such, we are required to comply with certain reduced disclosure requirements for public company reporting requirements for future filings. As a smaller reporting company, we are not required to disclose certain executive compensation information only two years of audited financial statements in our public filings.

 

Our board of directors has the ability to issue blank check preferred stock, which may discourage or impede acquisition attempts or other transactions.

 

Our board of directors has the power, subject to applicable law, to issue series of preferred stock that could, depending on the terms of the series, impede the completion of a merger, tender offer or other takeover attempt. For instance, subject to applicable law, a series of preferred stock may impede a business combination by including class voting rights, which would enable the holder or holders of such series to block a proposed transaction. Our board of directors will make any determination to issue shares of preferred stock on its judgment as to our and our stockholders’ best interests. Our board of directors, in so acting, could issue shares of preferred stock having terms which could discourage an acquisition attempt or other transaction that some, or a majority, of the stockholders may believe to be in their best interests or in which stockholders would have received a premium for their stock over the then prevailing market price of the stock.

 

Our common stock may be considered a “penny stock,” and may be subject to additional sale and trading regulations that may make it more difficult to sell.

 

Our common stock may be considered a “penny stock.” The principal result or effect of being designated a penny stock is that securities broker-dealers participating in sales of our common stock may be subject to the penny stock regulations set forth in Rules 15g-2 through 15g-9 promulgated under the Exchange Act. For example, Rule 15g-2 requires broker-dealers dealing in penny stocks to provide potential investors with a document disclosing the risks of penny stocks and to obtain a manually signed and dated written receipt of the document at least two business days before effecting any transaction in a penny stock for the investor’s account. Moreover, Rule 15g-9 requires broker-dealers in penny stocks to approve the account of any investor for transactions in such stocks before selling any penny stock to that investor. This procedure requires the broker-dealer to (i) obtain from the investor information concerning his or her financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives; (ii) reasonably determine, based on that information, that transactions in penny stocks are suitable for the investor and that the investor has sufficient knowledge and experience as to be reasonably capable of evaluating the risks of penny stock transactions; (iii) provide the investor with a written statement setting forth the basis on which the broker-dealer made the determination in (ii) above; and (iv) receive a signed and dated copy of such statement from the investor, confirming that it accurately reflects the investor’s financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives. Compliance with these requirements may make it more difficult and time consuming for holders of our common stock to resell their shares to third parties or to otherwise dispose of them in the market or otherwise.
