Overview

 

During fiscal-year 2021, the Company faced significant challenges from the pandemic and supply chain issues within the automotive industry. Despite these challenges IGEN continued to make progress with creating new opportunities and products in 2021. The Company moved into new offices located in Lake Elsinore in anticipation of significant growth post 2021 challenges. Creating new channels and partnerships in 2021 were key initiatives to secure longer term market share with both our consumer and commercial customers. Product and software innovation was our priority with the recent launch of our Next-Generation Platform and Medallion GPS created for Light-Commercial Fleets, both developed with IGEN’s patented Driver Signature and Behavior algorithms.

 

For the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company recognized revenues of $268,947 with a gross margin of 54% and $145,154 gross profit. Expenses for the year ended December 31, 2021, totaled $3,594,091, an increase of $837,975, or 31%, from total expenses reported for 2020. Excluding $2,590,040 of stock-based compensation expense to our directors, operational expenses increased by 14% year on year.

 

For the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company saw a net increase in cash of $37,698. Cash used in operating activities was $962,960, an increase of 10% from the $874,261 net cash used in 2020. This was offset by net financings of $1,092,246 raised via private placements. Cash at the end of the year was $64,429.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND SIGNIFICANT JUDGMENTS AND ESTIMATES

 

Our management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based on our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and judgments. We base our estimates on historical experience, known trends and events, and various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ materially from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are recognized and carried at the original invoice amount less an allowance for expected uncollectible amounts. Inherent in the assessment of the allowance for doubtful accounts are certain judgments and estimates including, among others, the customer’s willingness or ability to pay, the Company’s compliance with customer invoicing requirements, the effect of general economic conditions and the ongoing relationship with the customer. Accounts with outstanding balances longer than the payment terms are considered past due. We do not charge interest on past due balances. The Company writes off trade receivables when all reasonable collection efforts have been exhausted. Bad debt expense is reflected as a component of general and administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of operations.

 

Goodwill

 

Goodwill represents the excess of the acquisition price over the fair value of identifiable net assets acquired. Goodwill is allocated at the date of the business combination. Goodwill is not amortized, but is tested for impairment annually on December 31 of each year or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate the asset may be impaired. These events and circumstances may include a significant change in legal factors or in the business climate, a significant decline in the Company’s share price, an adverse action of assessment by a regulator, unanticipated competition, a loss of key personnel, significant disposal activity and the testing of recoverability for a significant asset group.

 

Goodwill impairment is measured as the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying value exceeds its fair value.

 

The Company has only one reporting unit. Therefore, all of the Company’s goodwill relates to that reporting unit, and at December 31, 2021 and 2020, the carrying value for that reporting unit is negative.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

In accordance with Financial Accounting Standard Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” the Company is to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. ASC 820 prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1

 

Level 1 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2

 

Level 2 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated by, observable market data.

 

Level 3

 

Level 3 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

Table of Contents

  

The fair values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts and other receivables, restricted cash, and accounts payable and accrued liabilities, approximate their carrying values due to the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments. Foreign currency transactions are primarily undertaken in Canadian dollars. The fair value of cash is determined based on “Level 1” inputs and the fair value of derivative liabilities is determined based on “Level 3” inputs. The recorded values of notes payable, approximate their current fair values because of their nature and respective maturity dates or durations. The financial risk is the risk to the Company’s operations that arise from fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and the degree of volatility to these rates. Currently, the Company does not use derivative instruments to reduce its exposure to foreign currency risk. Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consists of cash. The Company places its cash and cash equivalents in what it believes to be credit-worthy financial institutions.

 

Revenue Recognition and Deferred Revenue

 

We recognize revenue in accordance with ASC 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, using the five-step model, including (1) identify the contract with the customer, (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (3) determine the transaction price, (4) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, and (5) recognize revenue in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Title and risk of loss generally pass to our customers upon delivery, as we have insurance for lost shipments. In limited circumstances where either title or risk of loss pass upon destination or acceptance or when collection is not reasonably assured, we defer revenue recognition until such events occur. We derive substantially all our revenues from the sale of products and services combined into one performance obligation. Product revenue includes the shipment of product according to the agreement with our customers. Service revenue include vehicle tracking services and customer support (technical support), installations and consulting. A contract usually includes both product and services. For these contracts, the Company accounts for individual performance obligations separately if they are distinct. Performance obligations include, but are not limited to, pass-thru harnesses and vehicle tracking services. Almost all of our revenues are derived from customers located in United States of America in the auto industry. The transaction price is allocated to the separate performance obligations on a relative standalone selling price basis. Standalone selling prices are typically estimated based on observable transactions when these services are not sold on a standalone basis. At contract inception, an assessment of the goods and services promised in the contracts with customers is performed and a performance obligation is identified for each distinct promise to transfer to the customer a good or service (or bundle of goods or services). To identify the performance obligations, the Company considers all of the goods or services promised in the contract regardless of whether they are explicitly stated or are implied by customary business practices. Revenue is recognized when our performance obligation has been met. The Company considers control to have transferred upon delivery because the Company has a present right to payment at that time, the Company has transferred use of the asset, and the customer is able to direct the use of, and obtain substantially all of the remaining benefits from, the asset. For arrangements under which the Company provides vehicle tracking services, the Company satisfies its performance obligations as those services are performed whereby the customer simultaneously receives and consumes the benefits of such services under the agreement. Revenues are recognized net of any taxes collected from customers, which are subsequently remitted to governmental authorities.

 

The Company provides product warranties with varying lengths of time and terms. The product warranties are considered to be assurance-type in nature and do not cover anything beyond ensuring that the product is functioning as intended. Based on the guidance in ASC 606, assurance-type warranties do not represent separate performance obligations. The Company has historically experienced a low rate of product returns under the warranty program.

 

Management assesses the business environment, customers’ financial condition, historical collection experience, accounts receivable aging, and customer disputes to determine whether collectability is reasonably assured. If collectability is not reasonably assured at the time of sale, the Company does not recognize revenue until collection occurs.

 

Revenue relating to the sale of service fees on its vehicle tracking and recovery services is recognized over the life of the contact. The service renewal fees are offered in terms ranging from 12 to 36 months and are generally payable upon delivery of the vehicle tracking devices or in full upon renewal.

 

Deferred revenues are recorded net of contract assets when cash payments are received from customers in advance of the Company’s performance. Contract assets represent the costs of the underlying hardware to enable the Company to perform on its contracts with customers and are amortized using the same method and term as deferred revenues. Any revenue that has been deferred and is expected to be recognized beyond one year is classified as deferred revenue, net of current portion.

 

Financing Costs and Debt Discount

 

Financing costs and debt discounts are recorded net of notes payable and convertible debentures in the consolidated balance sheets. Amortization of financing costs and the debt discounts is calculated using the effective interest method over the term of the debt and is recorded as interest expense in the consolidated statement of operations.

Capital Resources and Liquidity

 

Current Assets and Liabilities, Working Capital

 

As of December 31, 2021, the Company had total current assets of $174,366, an 113% increase from the end of 2020. This increase was mostly due to a $92,349 increase in cash, accounts receivable, and inventory, because of the timing of payments to Nimbo from its customers and an increase in new sales contracts in Q4 2020.

 

The Company’s current liabilities as of December 31, 2021, were $1,084,366, a 6% decrease over those reported at the end of the 2020. However, $65,715 (or 6%) of the Company’s current liabilities were deferred revenues, net to be recognized in future periods. The decrease in current liabilities was mostly due to a $252,339 decrease in accounts payable, accrued expenses, derivative liability, and current portion of deferred revenues as of December 31, 2021.

 

IGEN ended 2021 with negative working capital of $910,000. Adequate working capital remains a core requirement for growth and profitability and to facilitate further acquisitions, and the Company continues to work at improving its working capital position through ongoing equity and debt financing and actively managing the Company’s growth to achieve sustainable positive cash flow.

 

In 2021, the Company raised an additional $1,142,211 in financings and converted $472,810 of preferred stock and convertible debentures into shares of common stock. These transactions are further disclosed in notes to the consolidated financial statements.

 

Total Assets and Liabilities, Net Assets

 

As of December 31, 2021, the Company’s total assets were $761,826, a 30% increase over the prior year, due primarily to the increase in current assets previously discussed and the new operating lease asset. The majority of the Company’s assets remain $505,508 in goodwill associated with the acquisition of Nimbo in 2014.

 

As of December 31, 2021, the Company’s total liabilities were $1,371,494, which reflects $79,770 in long-term deferred revenue, net in addition to the $1,084,366 in current liabilities previously discussed. This long-term deferred revenue is the portion of service contracts signed in previous years for which service, and the associated revenue recognition, occurs beyond 2022. Total liabilities decreased by 6% over the previous year, however 11%, or $145,485 of the Company’s year-end total liabilities was deferred revenue, net, compared with $138,812 of deferred revenue, net reported at the end of 2020.

 

The above resulted in net assets as of December 31, 2021 being ($609,668) and an accumulated deficit of $19,076,522.

 

The Company is continuing its efforts to increase its asset base, raise funds and improve cashflow to improve its working capital position. As of the date these financial statements were issued, the Company believes it has adequate working capital and projected net revenues and cash flows to maintain existing operations for approximately six months without requiring additional funding. The Company’s business plan is predicated on raising further capital for the purpose of further investment and acquisition of targeted technologies and companies, to fund growth in these technologies and companies, and to expand sales and distribution channels for companies it currently owns or is invested. It is anticipated the Company will continue to raise additional capital through private placements or other means in the both the near and medium term.

 

The reader is cautioned that the Company’s belief in the adequacy of its working capital, the continuation and growth of future revenue, the ability of the Company to operate any stated period without additional funding, and the ability to successfully raise capital are forward looking statements for which actual results may vary, to the extent that the company may need capital earlier than anticipated and/or may not be able to raise additional capital.

Revenues and Net Loss

 

Revenues

 

For the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company had revenues of $268,947, a 27% decrease over the revenues reported for same period in 2020. Decrease in revenue was primarily due to the impact of COVID-19 on demand for new vehicles at our customers’ franchise dealerships. Several of our customers’ dealerships were closed as a result of localized infections amongst their staff and sales management.

 

Costs of goods sold for 2021 were $123,793, representing a decrease of 54% year on year. These costs are primarily mobile hardware and cellular carrier costs.

 

The resulting gross profit was $145,154, representing an increase of 50% year on year, and gross margins of 54%.

 

Though the Company decreased revenues, decreased gross profit, and decreased gross margins year on year, we continue to review hardware vendor, inventory, and order fulfillment strategies as well as product and service pricing models to continually improve overall margins.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of

IGEN Networks Corp.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of IGEN Networks Corp. and subsidiary (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2021, the related consolidated statements of operations, redeemable convertible preferred stock and stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for the year then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”).

 

In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2021, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring losses and negative cash flows from operations and has a net capital deficiency that raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

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

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Critical Audit Matters

 

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

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Description of the Matter

 

As described in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company recognizes revenue in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 606, Revenues from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”). In applying ASC 606 to the Company’s customer contracts, there is significant judgement regarding the identification of the performance obligations, and in particular as it relates to whether hardware is a separate performance obligation or part of the performance obligation that relates to tracking services. In addition, there is also judgement as to the period of the time that revenue should be recognized for certain performance obligations, and for certain transactions there is judgement as to whether a single contract is a single contract with two performance obligations or in substance two separate contracts for accounting purposes. These matters require significant judgement and ultimately affect the timing of revenue recognition, and as a result, we identified revenue recognition as a critical audit matter.

How We Addressed the Matter in Our Audit

 

To address the above matters relating to revenue recognition, our audit procedures included reviewing management’s detailed evaluation of the application of ASC 606 as it applies to its various types of customer contracts and verifying that the evaluation properly considered the guidance in ASC 606. Further, our procedures also included reviewing customer contracts, testing the details of a number of transactions, and performing other procedures to verify the appropriateness of the Company’s application of ASC 606.

Valuation of derivative liabilities

 

Description of the Matter

 

As described in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company has determined that the conversion features of certain debt and equity instruments it holds should be accounted for as derivatives. The accounting for these derivative liabilities require that they be recorded at fair value and that the fair value is remeasured at the end of each reporting period with the change in the fair value being a charge or credit to earnings. In determining the fair value of these derivatives, the Company uses a mutli-nominal lattice model which requires a number of assumptions as inputs, including expected volatility, risk-free rate and expected life. Considering there is judgement as to the appropriateness of the model used and that there is judgement regarding the assumptions that are significant to the model, we identified the valuation of derivative liabilities as critical audit matter.

 

How We Addressed the Matter in Our Audit

 

To test the valuation of the derivative liabilities, our audit procedures included, among others, reviewing the terms of the underlying instruments, evaluating the methodologies used in the valuation model and testing the significant assumptions. For example, we tested the reasonableness of the Company’s conversion terms and compared the forecasted volatility of the Company’s common stock price to its historical volatility. We also assessed the completeness and accuracy of the underlying data. We involved our valuation specialist to assist in our evaluation of the significant assumptions and methodologies used by the Company. We have also evaluated the Company financial statement disclosures related to these matters included in Note 7 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

IGEN NETWORKS CORP.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

Years Ended December 31, 2021 and 2020

(Expressed in U.S. dollars)

 

1. Organization and Description of Business

 

IGEN Networks Corp. (“IGEN”, the “Company”, “we”, “our”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on November 14, 2006, under the name of Nurse Solutions Inc. On September 19, 2008, the Company changed its name to Sync2 Entertainment Corporation and traded under the symbol SYTO. On September 15, 2008, the Company became a reporting issuer in British Columbia, Canada. On May 26, 2009, the Company changed its name to IGEN Networks Corp. On March 25, 2015, the Company was listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) under the trading symbol IGN and the Company became a reporting Venture Issuer in British Columbia and Ontario, Canada.

 

The Company’s principal business is the development and marketing of software services for the automotive industry. The Company works with wireless carriers, hardware suppliers and software developers to provide direct and secure access to information on the vehicle and the driver’s behavior. The software services are delivered from the AWS Cloud to the consumer and their families over the wireless networks and accessed from any mobile or desktop device. The software services are marketed to automotive dealers, financial institutions, and direct-to-consumer through various commercial and consumer brands.

 

Going Concern

 

The consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2021 have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has experienced recurring losses from operations and has negative operating cash flows since inception, has a working capital deficit of $910,000 and an accumulated deficit of $19,076,522 as of December 31, 2021, and is dependent on its ability to raise capital from stockholders or other sources to sustain operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Ultimately, the Company plans to achieve profitable operations through the increase in revenue base and successfully growing its operations organically or through acquisitions. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

 

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basic of Presentation and Consolidation

 

These consolidated financial statements and related notes include the records of the Company and the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Nimbo Tracking LLC, which is based in the USA.

 

All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated. These consolidated financial statements are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”), are expressed in U.S. dollars, and, in management’s opinion, have been properly prepared within reasonable limits of materiality and within the framework of the significant accounting policies summarized below.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of these consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to allowance for doubtful accounts, valuation of inventory, the useful life and recoverability of equipment, impairment of goodwill, valuation of notes payable and convertible debentures, fair value of stock-based compensation and derivative liabilities, and deferred income tax asset valuation allowances. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company’s estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less at the time of acquisition to be cash equivalents.

Table of Contents

  

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are recognized and carried at the original invoice amount less an allowance for expected uncollectible amounts. Inherent in the assessment of the allowance for doubtful accounts are certain judgments and estimates including, among others, the customer’s willingness or ability to pay, the Company’s compliance with customer invoicing requirements, the effect of general economic conditions and the ongoing relationship with the customer. Accounts with outstanding balances longer than the payment terms are considered past due. We do not charge interest on past due balances. The Company writes off trade receivables when all reasonable collection efforts have been exhausted. Bad debt expense is reflected as a component of general and administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of operations. As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the allowance for doubtful accounts was approximately $11,000 and $22,000, respectively.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consists of vehicle tracking and recovery devices and is comprised entirely of finished goods that can be resold. Inventory is stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is determined on a first-in, first-out (FIFO) basis. Net realizable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, less estimated costs of completion and selling costs. There was no provision for inventory recorded during the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020.

 

Equipment

 

Office equipment, computer equipment, and software are recorded at cost. Depreciation is provided annually at rates and methods over their estimated useful lives. Management reviews the estimates of useful lives of the assets every year and adjusts them on prospective basis, if needed. All equipment was fully depreciated as of December 31, 2021 and 2020. For purposes of computing depreciation, the method of depreciating equipment is as follows:

 

Computer equipment

3 years straight-line

Office equipment

5 years straight-line

Software

3 years straight-line

 

Goodwill

 

Goodwill represents the excess of the acquisition price over the fair value of identifiable net assets acquired. Goodwill is allocated at the date of the business combination. Goodwill is not amortized, but is tested for impairment annually on December 31 of each year or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate the asset may be impaired. These events and circumstances may include a significant change in legal factors or in the business climate, a significant decline in the Company’s share price, an adverse action of assessment by a regulator, unanticipated competition, a loss of key personnel, significant disposal activity and the testing of recoverability for a significant asset group.

 

Goodwill impairment is measured as the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying value exceeds its fair value.

 

The Company has only one reporting unit. Therefore, all of the Company’s goodwill relates to that reporting unit, and at December 31, 2021 and 2020, the carrying value for that reporting unit is negative.

 

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

 

The Company reviews long-lived assets, such as equipment, for impairment whenever events or changes in the circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. If the total of the estimated undiscounted future cash flows is less than the carrying value of the asset, an impairment loss is recognized for the excess of the carrying value over the fair value of the asset during the year the impairment occurs.

 

Fair Value Measurements and Financial Instruments

 

In accordance with Financial Accounting Standard Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” the Company is to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. ASC 820 prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1

 

Level 1 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2

 

Level 2 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated by, observable market data.

  

Level 3

 

Level 3 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

See Note 7 for fair value measurement information related to the Company’s derivative liabilities.

 

The fair values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts and other receivables, restricted cash, and accounts payable and accrued liabilities, approximate their carrying values due to the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments. Foreign currency transactions are primarily undertaken in Canadian dollars. The fair value of cash is determined based on “Level 1” inputs and the fair value of derivative liabilities is determined based on “Level 3” inputs. The recorded values of notes payable, approximate their current fair values because of their nature and respective maturity dates or durations. The financial risk is the risk to the Company’s operations that arise from fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and the degree of volatility to these rates. Currently, the Company does not use derivative instruments to reduce its exposure to foreign currency risk. Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consists of cash and accounts receivable. The Company places its cash and cash equivalents in what it believes to be credit-worthy financial institutions.

 

Revenue Recognition and Deferred Revenue

 

We recognize revenue in accordance with ASC 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, using the five-step model, including (1) identify the contract with the customer, (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (3) determine the transaction price, (4) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, and (5) recognize revenue in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Title and risk of loss generally pass to our customers upon delivery, as we have insurance for lost shipments. In limited circumstances where either title or risk of loss pass upon destination or acceptance or when collection is not reasonably assured, we defer revenue recognition until such events occur. We derive substantially all our revenues from the sale of products and services combined into one performance obligation. Product revenue includes the shipment of product according to the agreement with our customers. Service revenue include vehicle tracking services and customer support (technical support), installations and consulting. A contract usually includes both product and services. For these contracts, the Company accounts for individual performance obligations separately if they are distinct. Performance obligations include, but are not limited to, pass-thru harnesses and vehicle tracking services. Almost all of our revenues are derived from customers located in United States of America in the auto industry. The transaction price is allocated to the separate performance obligations on a relative standalone selling price basis. Standalone selling prices are typically estimated based on observable transactions when these services are not sold on a standalone basis. At contract inception, an assessment of the goods and services promised in the contracts with customers is performed and a performance obligation is identified for each distinct promise to transfer to the customer a good or service (or bundle of goods or services). To identify the performance obligations, the Company considers all of the goods or services promised in the contract regardless of whether they are explicitly stated or are implied by customary business practices. Revenue is recognized when our performance obligation has been met. The Company has insignificant revenues related to product sales. For these revenues, the Company considers control to have transferred upon delivery because the Company has a present right to payment at that time, the Company has transferred use of the asset, and the customer is able to direct the use of, and obtain substantially all of the remaining benefits from, the asset. For arrangements under which the Company provides vehicle tracking services, which account for the substantial portion of the Company’s revenues, the Company satisfies its performance obligations as those services are performed whereby the customer simultaneously receives and consumes the benefits of such services under the agreement. Revenues are recognized net of any taxes collected from customers, which are subsequently remitted to governmental authorities.

 

The Company provides product warranties with varying lengths of time and terms. The product warranties are considered to be assurance-type in nature and do not cover anything beyond ensuring that the product is functioning as intended. Based on the guidance in ASC 606, assurance-type warranties do not represent separate performance obligations. The Company has historically experienced a low rate of product returns under the warranty program.

 

Management assesses the business environment, customers’ financial condition, historical collection experience, accounts receivable aging, and customer disputes to determine whether collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Revenue relating to the sale of service fees on its vehicle tracking and recovery services is recognized over the life of the contact. The service renewal fees are offered in terms ranging from 12 to 36 months and are generally payable upon delivery of the vehicle tracking devices or in full upon renewal.

 

Deferred revenues are recorded net of contract assets when cash payments are received from customers in advance of the Company’s performance. Contract assets represent the costs of (1) commission costs, (2) installation costs, and (3) the underlying hardware to enable the Company to perform on its contracts with customers and are amortized using the same method and term as deferred revenues. As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, deferred revenues, net of contract assets totaled $145,485 and $138,812, respectively, and contract assets totaled $71,441 and $66,022, respectively. Any revenue that has been deferred and is expected to be recognized beyond one year is classified as deferred revenue, net of current portion.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company recorded additions to deferred revenues of $278,509 and recognized total revenues of $219,808 through the amortization of deferred revenues. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company recognized revenues of $135,708 related to deferred revenues outstanding as of December 31, 2020 as the services were performed.

Financing Costs and Debt Discount

 

Financing costs and debt discounts are recorded net of notes payable and convertible debentures in the consolidated balance sheets. Amortization of financing costs and the debt discounts is calculated using the effective interest method over the term of the debt and is recorded as interest expense in the consolidated statements of operations.

 

Income Taxes

 

Deferred income taxes are provided on the asset and liability method whereby deferred income tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred income tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred income tax assets will not be realized. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

 

Stock-based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock-based payments in accordance with stock-based payment accounting guidance which requires all stock-based payments to be recognized based upon their fair values. The fair value of stock-based awards is estimated at the grant date using the Black-Scholes Option Pricing Model and the portion that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as compensation cost over the requisite service period. The determination of fair value using the Black-Scholes Option Pricing Model is affected by the Company’s stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of complex and subjective variables, including expected stock price volatility, risk-free interest rate, expected dividends and projected employee stock option exercise behaviors. The Company accounts for forfeitures of unvested awards as they occur.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company classifies as equity any contracts that require physical settlement or net-share settlement or provide us a choice of net cash settlement or settlement in our own shares (physical settlement or net-share settlement) provided that such contracts are indexed to our own stock as defined in ASC Topic 815-40 “Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity.” The Company classifies as assets or liabilities any contracts (including embedded conversion features) that require net-cash settlement including a requirement to net cash settle the contract if an event occurs and if that event is outside our control or give the counterparty a choice of net-cash settlement or settlement in shares. The Company assesses classification of its derivatives at each reporting date to determine whether a change in classification between assets and liabilities is required.

 

Loss Per Share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share are computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted earnings per share give effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period including stock options, using the treasury stock method, and convertible debentures, using the if-converted method. In computing diluted earnings (loss) per share, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants. Diluted earnings (loss) per share exclude all potentially issuable shares if their effect is anti-dilutive. Because the effect of conversion of the Company’s dilutive securities is anti-dilutive, diluted loss per share is the same as basic loss per share for the periods presented. As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company has 239,950,260 and 262,930,295 potentially dilutive shares outstanding, respectively.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncement

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, “Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815 - 40)” (“ASU 2020-06”). ASU 2020-06 simplifies the accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity, including convertible instruments and contracts on an entity’s own equity. The ASU is part of the FASB’s simplification initiative, which aims to reduce unnecessary complexity in U.S. GAAP. The ASU’s amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact ASU 2020-06 will have on its financial statements.

6. Convertible Debentures and Notes Payable

 

On May 17, 2019, the Company entered into a Convertible Promissory Note (“Promissory Note”) with Crown Bridge Partners, LLC (the “Holder”). The Promissory Note bears interest at 7% per annum (with the understanding that the first 12 months of interest of each tranche will be guaranteed). The maturity date is 18 months from the effective date of each payment.

 

The Conversion Price, as defined in the agreement, is the lesser of (i) the lowest Trading Price (as defined below) during the previous 25 trading day period ending on the latest complete trading day prior to the date of this Promissory Note or (ii) the Variable Conversion Price (as defined below). The Variable Conversion Price means the lowest one Trading Price (as defined below) for the common stock during the 25 Trading Day period ending on the last complete Trading Day prior to the Conversion Date. Trading Price means, for any security as of any date, the lesser of the (i) lowest traded price and (ii) lowest closing bid price. Based on the Company’s examination of the conversion feature and the relative accounting guidance, the Company has determined that the conversion feature should be treated as a derivative liability for accounting purposes.

 

Additionally, if at any time while the Promissory Note is outstanding, the Conversion Price is equal to or lower than $0.025, then an additional $10,000 will be automatically added to the principal balance of each tranche funded under the Note.

 

In connection with the Promissory Note, the Company also entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with the Holder which states that the Company will also issue to the Holder a warrant to purchase an amount of shares of its common stock equal to 50% of the face value of each respective tranche divided by $0.10.

 

Per the terms of the Common Stock Purchase Warrant agreement, on May 17, 2019, the Company issued a warrant to purchase 250,000 shares of common stock with an Exercise Price of $0.10 subject to adjustment (standard anti-dilution features). The agreement contains a down-round provision that automatically resets the exercise price of the warrant to a new exercise price that is equal to the per share price of common stock subsequently issued (including conversions of debt and preferred stock). Upon the lowing of the exercise price, the number of warrants will be increased such that the total proceeds upon exercise is the same amount (see Note 7). If the Market Price of one shares of common stock is greater than the Exercise Price, the Holder may elect to receive Warrant Shares pursuant to cashless exercise, in lieu of cash exercise, per a defined formula in the agreement.

 

On June 19, 2020, the Company received $19,250 in net cash proceeds from a note holder under the same terms as the Promissory Note. The related principal amount due for the convertible debt instrument was $25,000 and the note matures on December 19, 2021. Using the Binomial Lattice Model, the Company computed the estimated fair value of the embedded conversion feature to be approximately $142,000 and recorded a related derivative liability for that amount and a charge to interest expense of approximately $122,000. Related to the derivative liability, the shares issued, the bonus interest, and the direct financing costs, the Company recorded a debt discount totaling $25,000 for the note, which is being amortized to interest expense over the term of the note using the effective interest method.

 

On July 10, 2020, the Company received $19,250 in net cash proceeds from a note holder under the same terms as the Promissory Note. The related principal amount due for the convertible debt instrument was $25,000 and the note matures on January 10, 2022. Using the Binomial Lattice Model, the Company computed the estimated fair value of the embedded conversion feature to be approximately $61,000 and recorded a related derivative liability for that amount and a charge to interest expense of approximately $42,000. Related to the derivative liability, the shares issued, the bonus interest, and the direct financing costs, the Company recorded a debt discount totaling $25,000 for the note, which is being amortized to interest expense over the term of the note using the effective interest method.

 

On November 2, 2020, the Company received $146,500 in net cash proceeds from a note holder under an Inventory Financing Promissory Note. The related principal amount due for the convertible debt instrument was $168,000. The note bears interest at 12% per annum and matures on May 2, 2022. Principal and accrued interest are convertible into common stock at a variable conversion price, which is 80% of the average two lowest traded prices for common stock during a 10-day trading period prior to conversion. Using the Binomial Lattice Model, the Company computed the estimated fair value of the embedded conversion feature to be approximately $99,000 and recorded a related derivative liability for that amount. The Company also issued 2,000,000 shares of common stock to the note holder as additional compensation. The value of the shares, $14,800. Related to the derivative liability, the shares issued, the bonus interest, and the direct financing costs, the Company recorded a debt discount totaling approximately $135,000 for the note, which is being amortized to interest expense over the term of the note using the effective interest method.

 

On December 13, 2021, the Company received $50,000 in net cash proceeds from a note holder under a short-term bridge note. The total amount to be repaid under the note is $77,000. The note matures on May 30, 2022. The Company is required to make 24 weekly payments of $3,208. As of December 31, 2021, the balance on the note was $51,713.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2021, the holders of the convertible notes converted a total of $9,616 of principal, interest and fees for a total of 1,780,825 shares of common stock. Related to these conversions during the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company recorded a reduction of the associated derivative liability for the conversion features of $9,013 and a reduction of the debt discount of $0 as components of the loss on settlement of debt. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company recorded $134,014 of interest expense related to the amortization of the debt discounts.

 

On May 4, 2020, the Company entered into a Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) Loan with a principal amount of $59,949 through a financial institution under the PPP administered by the SBA and established as part of the CARES Act. The PPP Loan bears interest at 1.0% per annum and matures on May 4, 2022 with the first six months of interest and principal payments deferred. The amount borrowed under the PPP Loan is guaranteed by the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) and is eligible for forgiveness in an amount equal to the sum of the eligible costs, including payroll, benefits, rent and utilities, incurred by the Company during the 24-week period beginning on the date the Company received the proceeds. The PPP Loan contains customary events of default, and the occurrence of an event of default may result in a claim for the immediate repayment of all amounts outstanding under the PPP Loan. As of December 31, 2021, the balance of the PPP Loan, including accrued interest was $60,948.

7. Derivative Liabilities

 

During the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had outstanding convertible debentures with variable exercise prices based on market rates (see Note 6) and convertible series A preferred stock with variable exercise prices based on market rates (see Note 9). The Company records the fair value of the conversion features with variable exercise prices based on future market rates in accordance with ASC 815. The fair value of the derivative liabilities is revalued on each balance sheet date with corresponding gains and losses recorded in the consolidated statements of operations. The Company uses a multi-nominal lattice model to fair value the derivative liabilities. The following inputs and assumptions were used to value the conversion features outstanding during the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, assuming no expected dividends:

The Company is required to file US federal and California tax returns, however the Company has not filed its federal or state returns since 2009 Due to the Company’s loss position the statute remains open for any losses carried over into the current year which means all years from 2007 remain open to examination.

 

The Company has adopted FASB ASC 740, “Income Taxes” to account for income taxes. ASC 740 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statement. This standard prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in the tax return. ASC 740 also provides guidance on derecognition of tax benefits, classification on the balance sheet, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transaction. In accordance with ASC 740-10-50, the Company is classifying interest and penalties as a component of tax expense.

 

The Company has a reserve related to unrecognized tax positions of $90,000 as of December 31, 2021, which is presented as part of accounts payable and accrued liabilities.

15. Commitments and Contingencies

 

Withheld Payroll Taxes

 

Since its inception, the Company has made several payments to employees for wages, net of state and federal income taxes. Due to cash constraints, the Company has not yet remitted all of these withheld amounts to the appropriate government agency. Accordingly, as of December 31, 2021 and 2020 the Company has recorded $37,984 and $37,984, respectively, related to this obligation in accounts payable and accrued liabilities, including estimated penalties and interest.

 

Operating Lease

 

On September 1, 2021 the Company entered into a lease for office space under an operating lease for approximately 2,500 square feet in Lake Elsinore, California, which is set to expire on October 31, 2024.

 

Operating lease assets and liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date. Operating lease liabilities represent the present value of lease payments not yet paid. Operating lease assets represent our right to use an underlying asset and are based upon the operating lease liabilities as adjusted for prepayments or accrued lease payments, initial direct costs, lease incentives, and impairment of operating lease assets. To determine the present value of lease payments not yet paid, the Company estimates incremental secured borrowing rates corresponding to the maturities of the leases.

 

The Company’s lease contains rent escalations over the lease term. The Company recognizes expense for these leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Additionally, tenant incentives used to fund leasehold improvements are recognized when earned and reduce our right-of-use asset related to the lease. These are amortized through the right-of-use asset as reductions of expense over the lease term. The Company’s lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.

 

The Company has elected the short-term lease recognition exemption for all applicable classes of underlying assets. Short-term disclosures include only those leases with a term greater than one month and 12 months or less, and expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less, that do not include an option to purchase the underlying asset that the Company is reasonably certain to exercise, are not recorded on the consolidated balance sheet.

Indemnities and Guarantees

 

We have made certain indemnities and guarantees, under which we may be required to make payments to a guaranteed or indemnified party, in relation to certain transactions. We indemnify our officers and directors to the maximum extent permitted under the laws of the State of Nevada. The duration of these indemnities and guarantees varies and, in certain cases, is indefinite. These indemnities and guarantees do not provide for any limitation of the maximum potential future payments we could be obligated to make. Historically, we have not been obligated to make any payments for these obligations and no liabilities have been recorded for these indemnities and guarantees in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

 

Legal Matters

 

In the ordinary course of business, we may face various claims brought by third parties and may, from time to time, make claims or take legal actions to assert our rights, including intellectual property disputes, contractual disputes and other commercial disputes. Any of these claims could subject us to litigation. Management believes there are currently no claims that are likely to have a material effect on our consolidated financial position and results of operations.

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures.

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

The Company carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures with the participation of all the Company’s executives, the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2021. The conclusions of the Company’s principal executives was that the controls and procedures in place were effective such that the information required to be disclosed in our SEC reports was a) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and b) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive offer and chief operation officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

As of December 31, 2021, management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting. The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintain adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Company. Internal control over financial reporting is a set of processes designed by or under the supervision of the Company’s CEO, COO and CFO (or executives performing equivalent functions) to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with GAAP and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

·

pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect our transactions and dispositions of our assets;

 

 

·

provide reasonable assurance our transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of our financial statements in accordance with GAAP, and that receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors;

 

 

·

provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives. In evaluating the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting, our management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control – Integrated Framework (2013). Based on that evaluation, they concluded that during the period covered by this report, though there are weaknesses in the Company’s internal controls, given the current size of the organization, such internal controls and procedures as were in place were adequately effective to detect the inappropriate application of US GAAP. We did not identify any material weaknesses.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with our evaluation we conducted of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2021, that occurred during our fourth fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

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

 

Item 9B. Other Information.

 

During the fourth quarter of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, there was no information required to be reported on Form 8-K which was not previously reported.

Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management

 

The table below sets forth information regarding the ownership of our common stock, as of December 31, 2021 unless otherwise indicated in the footnotes to the table, by (i) all persons known by us to beneficially own more than 5% of our common stock, (ii) each of our current directors and director nominees, (iii) our principal executive officer and our other executive officers who were serving as such at the end of Fiscal 2021 (each, a “named executive officer”), and (iv) all of our directors, director nominees and executive officers as a group. We know of no agreements among our stockholders that relate to voting or investment power over our common stock or any arrangement the operation of which may at a subsequent date result in a change of control of us.

 

Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with applicable SEC rules and generally reflects sole or shared voting or investment power over securities. Under these rules, a person is deemed to be the beneficial owner of securities that the person has the right to acquire as of or within 60 days after December 31, 2021, upon the exercise of outstanding stock options or warrants, the conversion of outstanding convertible notes, or the exercise or conversion of any other derivative securities affording the person the right to acquire shares of our common stock. As a result, each person’s percentage ownership set forth in the table below is determined by assuming that all outstanding stock options, warrants or other derivative securities held by such person that are exercisable or convertible as of or within 60 days after December 31, 2021 have been exercised or converted. Except in cases where community property laws apply or as indicated in the footnotes to the table, we believe that each person identified in the table below possesses sole voting and investment power over all shares of common stock shown as beneficially owned by such person. All ownership percentages in the table are based on 1,515,716,857 shares of our common stock outstanding as of March 15, 2022.
