SUBJECT TO COMPLETION, DATED ____________

 

PRELIMINARY PROSPECTUS

IGEN NETWORKS CORP.

 

Up to 200,000,000 Shares of Common Stock

 

This Prospectus relates to the offer and sale from time-to-time of up to 200,000,000 shares of Common Stock, par value $0.001, of IGEN Networks Corp, a Nevada corporation, by Jefferson Street Capital, LLC, a New Jersey limited liability company (the “Selling Stockholder”). We are registering the resale of the above shares of Common Stock issuable under an equity line in the amount of $5,000,000 established by the Equity Financing Agreement, dated as of April 3, 2022 (the “Equity Line”), between us and the Selling Stockholder, as more fully described in this Prospectus. The resale of such shares by the Selling Stockholder pursuant to this Prospectus is referred to as the “Offering.” The Offering consists of 200,000,000 shares being registered issuable pursuant to the Equity Line.

 

Our common stock is currently quoted on the OTC Market Group, Inc.’s Pink Current Information tier under the symbol “IGEN”. As reported by OTC Markets, the most recent reported trading price of our Common Stock was $.0041 per share on May 31, 2022.

  

We are not selling any securities under this Prospectus and will not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock by the Selling Stockholder. We will, however, receive proceeds from sale of our Common Stock under the Equity Line to the Selling Stockholder.

 

The Equity Financing Agreement with the Selling Stockholder provides that the Selling Stockholder is committed to purchase up to $5,000,000 (“Maximum Commitment Amount”) of our Common Stock over the course of its term. The term of the Equity Financing Agreement commenced on April 3, 2022 and will end on the earlier of (i) the date on which the Selling Stockholder has purchased Common Stock from us pursuant to the Equity Financing Agreement equal to the Maximum Commitment Amount, (ii) April 3, 2025, or (iii) written notice of termination by us.

 

We may draw on the Equity Line from time-to-time, as and when we determine appropriate in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Equity Financing Agreement. The securities included in this Prospectus represent the Common Stock issuable to the Selling Stockholder under the Equity Line.

 

The Selling Stockholder is an “underwriter” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(11) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Selling Stockholder may sell the shares of Common Stock described in this Prospectus in a number of different ways and at varying prices. We will pay the expenses incurred in registering the shares of Common Stock, including legal and accounting fees. See “Plan of Distribution” for more information about how the Selling Stockholder may sell the shares of Common Stock being offered pursuant to this Prospectus.

 

Investing in our Common Stock is speculative and involves substantial risks. You should carefully consider the matters discussed under “Risk Factors” beginning on page 8 of this Prospectus before making any decision to invest in our Common Stock.

 

Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or determined if this Prospectus is truthful or complete. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

Equity Financing Agreement with Jefferson Street Capital, LLC

 

On April 3, 2022, we executed an Equity Financing Agreement with Jefferson Street Capital, LLC (“Jefferson Steet Capital” or the “Selling Stockholder”), which was finalized and effected on April 3, 2022 (the “Equity Line”). Under the Equity Line, we have the right to sell to Jefferson Street Capital up to $5,000,000 of shares of our Common Stock for a period of up to three (3) years, commencing on the execution date of the agreement. Under the Equity Line, the Selling Stockholder is committed to purchase, on an unconditional basis, shares of our common stock (“Put Shares”).

Table of Contents

 

The Equity Financing Agreement provides that that we have the right, but not the obligation, to deliver to Jefferson Street Capital from time-to-time, a “put notice” stating the number of shares and purchase price of Common shares we intend to sell to Jefferson Street Partners. The purchase price of the shares will be 88% of the lesser of the (i) “market price,” defined as the lowest traded price for any trading day during the 15 consecutive trading days immediately preceding delivery of the put notice.  The 15 consecutive trading days preceding the receipt of the put notice is referred to as the pricing period.  Each put notice shall be (i) in a minimum amount not less than $10,000 and (ii) a maximum amount up to the lesser of (a) $200,000 or (b) 200% of the average daily trading dollar volume during the pricing period.  The put amount is defined as the average trading volume of our common stock during the 15 consecutive trading days immediately preceding delivery of the respective put notice (the “pricing period”), multiplied by the lowest traded price of the of our shares during the pricing period. We may not deliver a new put notice until ten trading days after the clearing of the prior put notice.

 

As a term of the Equity Financing Agreement, we entered into a Registration Rights Agreement with Jefferson Street Capital, whereby we agreed to register for resale by Jefferson Street Capital the shares of Common Stock purchased pursuant to the Equity Financing Agreement. Accordingly, we filed a registration statement with the SEC on Form S-1, of which this Prospectus is a part, and which covers the resale of shares to be issued under the Registration Rights Agreement.

 

The Offering

 

Securities offered by the Selling Stockholder

 

Up to 200,000,000 shares of Common Stock.

 

 

 

Common Stock outstanding before Offering

 

1,549,420,305

 

 

 

Common Stock outstanding after Offering

 

1,749,420,305 shares, assuming the issuance of the entire additional 200,000,000 shares pursuant to the Equity Financing Agreement.

 

 

 

Use of Proceeds

 

We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of Common Stock by the Selling Stockholder. However, we will receive proceeds from the sale of shares to Jefferson Street Capital pursuant to our exercise of a put right granted to us in the Equity Financing Agreement. Any such proceeds will be used for general corporate and business operations purposes and film production and distribution activities.

 

 

 

Risk Factors

 

An investment in our securities involves a high degree of risk and could result in a loss of your entire investment. Further, the issuance to, or sale by, the Selling Stockholder of a significant amount of shares being registered in connection with this Prospectus at any given time, could cause the market price of our common stock to decline and to be highly volatile. We do not have the right to control the timing and amount of any sales of such shares by the Selling Stockholder. Prior to making an investment decision, you should carefully consider all of the information in this Prospectus and, in particular, you should evaluate the risk factors set forth under the caption “Risk Factors” beginning on page 7.

Selling Stockholder

 

The Selling Stockholder, Jefferson Street Capital, LLC, a New Jersey limited liability company, is committed to purchase, on an unconditional basis, shares of our Common Stock (“Put Shares”) at an aggregate price of up to $5,000,000 over the term of the Equity Financing Agreement. Based on the trading price of our Common Stock as of April 19, 2022, we estimate Jefferson Street Capital would purchase an aggregate of 833,000,000 shares of Common Stock under the Equity Financing Agreement if the entire $5,000,000 amount had been drawn. The Offering consists of 200,000,000 Put Shares issuable pursuant to the Equity Line; such shares would represent approximately 11% of our outstanding Common Stock as of April 19, 2022, resulting in significant ownership dilution to our existing Common stockholders. This Prospectus relates to the future sale of these shares, from time-to-time, by Jefferson Street Capital.

 

Plan of distribution

 

The Selling Stockholder, including any of its pledgees, assignees and successors-in-interest may, from time to time, sell any or all of its securities covered hereby that were acquired under the Equity Line. Sales may be made on the OTC Markets Pink Current Information tier or any other stock exchange, market or trading facility on which the securities are traded, or in private transactions. These sales may be at the prevailing market price or related to the then current market price, fixed prices or negotiated prices. See “The Offering - Plan of Distribution.”

 

RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in IGEN common stock is speculative, involves significant risks and should not be made by anyone who cannot afford to lose his or her entire investment. Before you invest in our common stock, you should be aware that our business faces numerous financial and market risks, including those described below, as well as general economic and business risks. You should consider carefully the following risks and uncertainties, together with all other information contained in this Prospectus, before deciding to invest in our common stock. The risks and uncertainties identified below are not the only risks and uncertainties we face. If any of the following events or risks should occur, our business, operating results and financial condition would likely suffer materially and you could lose part or all of your investment.

 

Risks Relating to Our Business

 

Our auditors have expressed a going concern modification to their audit report.

 

Our independent auditors include a modification in their report to our financial statements, expressing that certain matters regarding the Company raise substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern. Note 1 to the December 31, 2021 and 2020 consolidated financial statements, states that the Company has recurring losses from operations and has a negative operating cash flow since inception that raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Management anticipates that the Company can attain profitable status and improve liquidity through continued business development and additional debt or equity investment in the Company. There can be no assurance that necessary debt or equity financing will be available, or will be available, on terms acceptable to the Company, in which case we may be unable to meet our obligations. If we are unable to obtain adequate financing or achieve profitability, there will be substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern in the future.

  

If we continue to have an ineffective system of internal controls over financial reporting, we may not be able to accurately report our financial results, which could have a material adverse effect on our share price.

  

Effective internal controls are necessary for us to provide accurate financial reports. Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and related SEC rules require, among other things, management to assess annually the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting. For the year ended December 31, 2021, we identified material weaknesses in our internal controls over financial reporting: namely (1) a material weakness related to the discovery of an error in a prior period financial statements related to revenue recognition, and (2) a material weakness related to the proper valuation of derivative instruments and share-based compensation amounts using the appropriate valuation models to determine reasonable estimates of fair value. If our controls fail, or management and/or our independent auditors conclude in their reports that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective, investors could lose confidence in our reported financial information, which could negatively affect the value of our shares. Also, we could be subject to sanctions or investigations by the SEC or other regulatory authorities, which would require additional financial and management resources.

 

 
7

Table of Contents

 

Because we do not have an audit committee, stockholders will have to rely on our directors, one of whom is not independent, to perform these functions.

 

We do not have an audit or compensation committee comprised of independent directors. These functions are performed by the board of directors as a whole. One member of the board of directors is not an independent director. Accordingly, there is a potential conflict in that board members may also be engaged in management and participate in decisions concerning management, compensation and audit issues, which may affect management performance.

 

If sufficient demand for our services does not materialize, our business would be materially affected, which could result in the loss of your entire investment.

 

Demand for our services depends on many factors, including:

 

 

the number of customers we can attract and retain over time;

 

the economy in general and, in periods of rapidly declining economic conditions, customers may defer services, such as ours, to pay their own debts to remain solvent;

 

the competitive environment in the software services markets may force us to reduce prices below desired pricing level or increase promotional spending; and

 

the ability to anticipate changes in user preferences and to meet customers’ needs in a timely, cost-effective manner.

 

All these factors could result in immediate and longer-term declines in demand for our offered services, which could adversely affect our sales, cash flows and overall financial condition. As a result, an investor could lose his or her entire investment.

 

Our future success depends on our ability to develop services, products and projects and to sell them to distribution channels. The inability to establish distribution channels, may severely limit our growth prospects.

 

Our business success is completely dependent on our ability to successfully develop services, products and projects and secure viable distribution channels. Revenues derived therefrom will represent vital funds necessary for our continued operations. The loss or damage of any of our business relationships and/or revenues derived therefrom, will result in the inability to market our services, products and projects.

 

It is possible that our projects may infringe on other patented, trademarked or copyrighted concepts. Litigation arising out of infringement or other commercial disputes could cause us to incur expenses and impair our competitive advantage.

 

We cannot be certain that our products or projects will not infringe upon existing patents, trademarks, copyrights or other intellectual property rights held by third parties. Because we may rely on third parties to help develop some of our projects, we cannot ensure that litigation will not arise from disputes involving these third parties. We may incur substantial expenses in defending against prospective claims, regardless of their merit. Successful claims against us may result in substantial monetary liability, significantly impact our results of operations in one or more quarters, or materially disrupt the conduct of our business. Our success depends in part on our ability to obtain and enforce intellectual property protection for our products and projects, to preserve our trade secrets and to operate without infringing the proprietary rights of third parties.

 

The validity and breadth of claims covered in our copyrights and trademarks that we intend to file involve complex legal and factual questions and, therefore, may be highly uncertain. No assurances can be given that any future copyright, trademark or other applications:

 

 

will be issued;

 

that the scope of any future intellectual property protection will exclude competitors or provide competitive advantages to the Company;

 

that any copyrights or trademarks will be held valid if subsequently challenged;

 

that others will not claim rights in, or ownership of, the potential copyrights or trademarks or other proprietary rights held by us; or

 

that our intellectual property will not infringe, or be alleged to infringe, on the proprietary rights of others.

 

 
8

Table of Contents

 

Furthermore, there can be no assurance that others have not developed or will not develop similar intellectual properties. Also, whether or not additional intellectual property protection is issued to the Company, others may hold or receive protection covering intellectual properties that were subsequently developed by the Company. No assurance can be given that others will not, or have not, independently developed or otherwise acquired substantially equivalent intellectual property.

 

Dependence on general economic conditions.

 

The success of our Company depends, to a large extent, on certain economic factors that are beyond our control. Factors such as general economic conditions, levels of unemployment, interest rates, tax rates at all levels of government and other factors beyond our control may have an adverse effect on our ability to sell our services and to collect sums due and owing to us.

 

We are dependent upon our directors, officer and consultants, the loss of any of whom would negatively affect our business.

 

We are dependent upon the experience and efforts of our directors, officers and consultants to operate our business. We also expect to depend upon service provider such as actors, editors, writers and camera crews. If any director or officer leaves or is otherwise unable to perform their duties, or should any consultant cease their activities for any reason before qualified replacements could be found, there could be material adverse effects on our business and prospects. We have not entered into employment or non-competition agreements with any individuals, and do not maintain key-man life insurance. Our future success will depend on our ability to attract and retain qualified personnel. Unless and until additional employees are hired, our attempt to manage our business and projects and meet our obligations with a limited staff could have material adverse consequences, including, without limitation, a possible failure to meet a contractual or SEC deadline or other business-related obligation.

 

We may not be able to manage future growth effectively, which could adversely affect our operations and financial performance.

 

The ability to manage and operate our business as we execute our business plan will require effective planning. If we should experience significant rapid growth in the future, it could strain management and internal resources that would adversely affect financial performance. We anticipate that future growth could place a serious strain on personnel, management systems, infrastructure and other resources. Our ability to manage future growth effectively will require attracting, training, motivating, retaining and managing new employees and continuing to update and improve operational, financial and management controls and procedures. If we do not manage growth effectively, our operations could be adversely affected resulting in slower growth and a failure to achieve or sustain profitability.

 

We have had a history of losses and may incur future losses, which may prevent us from attaining profitability.

 

We have a history of operating losses since inception and, as of December 31, 2021 and March 31, 2022 we had a accumulated deficit of $19,076,522 and $19,358,959 respectively. We may incur future operating losses and these losses could be substantial and impact our ability to attain profitability. In the immediate future, we do not expect to significantly increase expenditures for product development, general and administrative expenses, and sales and marketing expenses without additional funding. However, if we cannot generate sufficient future revenues, we will not achieve or sustain profitability or positive operating cash flows. Even if we achieve profitability and positive operating cash flows, we may not be able to sustain or increase profitability or positive operating cash flows on a quarterly or annual basis.

Table of Contents

 

We anticipate needing additional financing to accomplish our business plan.

 

At May 31, 2022 we had cash on hand of $ 75,000. Management estimates that we will require approximately an additional $900,000 during the next 12 months to fully implement our current business plan. We anticipate that at least a portion of these funds will be realized from the Equity Line. However, there is no assurance that we will be able to secure all necessary financing, or that any additional financing available will be available on terms acceptable to us, or at all. Shares issued under the Equity Line and any additional offerings of Common Stock will dilute the holdings of our then-current stockholders. If we borrow funds, we would likely be obligated to make periodic interest or other debt service payments and be subject to additional restrictive covenants. If alternative sources of financing are required, but are insufficient or unavailable, we will be required to modify our growth and operating plans in accordance with the extent of available funding. Presently, we do not intend to obtain any debt financing from a lending institution. If necessary, our board of directors or other stockholders may agree to loan funds to the Company, although there are no formal agreements to do so. Failure to secure additional capital, if needed, could force us to curtail our growth strategy, reduce or delay capital expenditures and downsize operations, which would have a material negative effect on our financial condition.

  

Our agreement with Jefferson Street Capital may limit the amount we may draw pursuant to an individual put notice under the Equity Line.

 

Under the Equity Line with Jefferson Street Capital, we have the ability to put shares of Common Stock for purchase up to the maximum aggregate amount of $5,000,000. However, the Equity Financing Agreement contains certain limitations on the amount we can draw pursuant to any single put notice. Because of the pricing formula in the agreement, we may be limited in the maximum amount of a put notice during a pricing period when our shares are trading at a lower price with low volume. Thus, there is no assurance that we will be able to draw sufficient funds during a certain pricing period that would satisfy current cash needs. In this event, we may have to rely on the availability of alternative funding. If such funding is not readily available, we would likely encounter financial difficulties that could threaten our ongoing business endeavors and financial conditions.

 

We could become involved in claims or litigations that may result in adverse outcomes.

 

From time-to-time we may be involved in a variety of claims or litigations. Such proceeding may initially be viewed as immaterial, but could prove to be material. Litigations are expensive and inherently unpredictable and excessive verdicts do occur. Given the inherent uncertainties in litigation, even when we can reasonably estimate the amount of possible loss or range of loss and reasonably estimable loss contingencies, the actual outcome may change in the future due to new developments or changes in approach. In addition, such claims or litigations could involve significant expense and diversion of management’s attention and resources from other matters.

 

Being a public company involves increased administrative costs, including compliance with SEC reporting requirements, which could result in lower net income and make it more difficult for us to attract and retain key personnel.

 

As a public company subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act, we incur significant legal, accounting and other expenses. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, as well as new rules subsequently implemented by the SEC, require changes in corporate governance practices of public companies. We believe these new rules and regulations increase legal and financial compliance costs and make some activities more time consuming. For example, in connection with being a public company, we may have to create new board committees, implement additional internal controls and disclose controls and procedures, adopt an insider trading policy and incur costs relating to preparing and distributing periodic public reports. These rules and regulations could also make it more difficult to attract and retain qualified executive officers and members of our board of directors, particularly to serve on our audit committee.

 

Management must invest significant time and energy to stay current with public company responsibilities, which limits the time they can apply to other tasks associated with operations. It is possible that the additional burden and expense of operating as a public company could hinder our ability to achieve and maintain profitability, which would cause our business to fail and investors to lose all their money invested in our stock.

 

We estimate that being a public company will cost us more than $100,000 annually. This is in addition to all other costs of doing business. It is important that we maintain adequate cash flow, not only to operate our business, but also to pay the cost of remaining public. If we fail to pay public company costs as incurred, we could become delinquent in our reporting obligations and our shares may no longer remain qualified for quotation on a public market. Further, investors may lose confidence in the reliability of our financial statements causing our stock price to decline.

Provisions in our charter documents and under Nevada law could make an acquisition of our Company more difficult, limit attempts by our stockholders to replace or remove our current board of directors and limit the market price of our common stock.

 

Provisions in our amended and restated Articles of Incorporation and may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change of control or changes in our management. Our amended and restated Articles of Incorporation include provisions that:

 

permit our board of directors to establish the number of directors and fill any vacancies and newly created directorships;

 

require super-majority voting to amend some provisions in our amended and restated Articles of Incorporation and amended and restated bylaws;

 

authorize the issuance of “blank check” preferred stock that our board of directors could use to implement a stockholder rights plan or issue preferred shares with super voting rights that will effectively reduce or eliminate the rights of shareholders of our common stock to amend our Articles of Incorporation or remove a director;

 

provide that only the Chairperson of our board of directors, our Chief Executive Officer, or a majority of our board of directors will be authorized to call a special meeting of stockholders.

 

In addition, Section 78.411 et seq. of the Nevada Revised Statutes provides that a Nevada corporation which has not opted out of coverage by this section in the prescribed manner may not engage in any combination with an interested stockholder for a period of two years following the date that the stockholder became an interested stockholder unless prior to that time the board of directors of the corporation approved either the combination or the transaction which resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder. The Company has not opted out of this provision, which reduces the options of the Company being acquired without the consent of the board of directors.

 

Risks Relating to Our Industry

 

If we are not successful in the continued development, timely manufacture, and introduction of new products or product categories, demand for our products could decrease to the extent that lost sales and profits from declining segments or product categories are not entirely offset.

 

We expect that a significant portion of our future revenue will continue to be derived from sales of newly introduced products. This is particularly important to replace sales and profits lost in declining segments or product categories. The market for our products is characterized by rapidly changing technology, evolving industry standards and changes in customer needs. If we fail to introduce new products, or to modify or improve our existing products, in response to changes in technology, industry standards or customer needs, our products could rapidly become less competitive or obsolete. We must continue to make significant investments in research and development in order to continue to develop new products, enhance existing products and achieve market acceptance for such products. However, there can be no assurance that development stage products will be successfully completed or, if developed, will achieve significant customer acceptance.

 

If we are unable to successfully develop and introduce competitive new products, and enhance our existing products, our future results of operations would be adversely affected. Our pursuit of necessary technology may require substantial time and expense. We may need to license new technologies to respond to technological change. These licenses may not be available to us on terms that we can accept or may materially change the gross profits that we are able to obtain on our products. We may not succeed in adapting our products to new technologies as they emerge. Development and manufacturing schedules for technology products are difficult to predict, and there can be no assurance that we will achieve timely initial customer shipments of new products. The timely availability of these products in volume and their acceptance by customers are important to our future success. Any future challenges related to new products, whether due to product development delays, manufacturing delays, lack of market acceptance, delays in regulatory approval, or otherwise, could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations.

If we are unable to compete effectively with existing or new competitors, our resulting loss of competitive position could result in price reductions, fewer customer orders, reduced margins and loss of market share.

 

The Company was impacted by the pandemic from supply chain delays and lack of availability of franchise vehicles within the automotive industry. The markets for our products are highly competitive, and we expect competition to increase in the future. Some of our competitors have significantly greater financial, technical and marketing resources than we do. These competitors may be able to respond more rapidly to new or emerging technologies or changes in customer requirements. They may also be able to devote greater resources to the development, promotion and sale of their products or secure better product positioning with retailers. Increased competition could result in price reductions, fewer customer orders, reduced margins and loss of market share. Our failure to compete successfully against current or future competitors could seriously harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

The consumer automotive segment, which represents almost all of our revenue, may decline in 2022. The demand for personal navigation devices (PNDs) has been and continues to be reduced by replacement technologies becoming available on mobile devices and factory-installed systems in new autos, as well as by market saturation.

 

This market is highly competitive, as competing new technologies emerge. GPS/navigation technologies have been incorporated into competing devices such as mobile handsets, tablets, and new automobiles through factory-installed systems. Many companies are now offering tracking software for these mobile devices.

 

We have a number of competitors in our market segment, and some of them are well capitalized and they continue to develop competitive products.

 

There are a number of companies offering automobile tracking products that may compete with our products. While we continuously strive to improve our product line and offer new and improved technology, some of our competitors are more well capitalized than we are and can produce competing produces on a larger scale and for a more competitive price.

 

Risks Relating to this Offering and Ownership of Our Common Stock

 

Our Common Stock is traded on the OTC Markets Pink Current Information Tier under the symbol “IGEN”, but there is no assurance that an active market for the shares will be maintained.

 

Although our shares are currently quoted and traded on the OTC Markets Pink Current Information tier, we cannot assure our stockholders that a continuous and active trading market will be sustained. In the even an active trading market is not maintained, it would be difficult, if not impossible, for stockholders to liquidate their shares. Also, the trading price for our shares may be highly volatile and subject to significant fluctuations due to variations in quarterly operating results and other business and economic factors. These price fluctuations may adversely affect the liquidity of our shares, as well as the price that holders may realize for their shares upon any future sale.

 

Stockholders of IGEN Common Stock should be aware that the public market may be volatile and subject to severe swings in price.

 

We believe that the trading market for our shares on the OTC Markets Pink Current Information Tier is volatile and subject to numerous factors, many beyond our control. Some factors that may influence the price of our shares are:

 

 

Our ability to find viable companies in which to invest;

 

Our ability to successfully manage companies in which we invest;

 

Our ability to successfully raise capital;

 

Our ability to successfully expand and leverage the distribution channels of our portfolio companies;

 

Our ability to develop new distribution partnerships and channels;

 

Expected tax rates and foreign exchange rates

Table of Contents

 

 

The continuing uncertain economic conditions;

 

Price and product competition;

 

Changing product mixes;

 

The loss of any significant customers;

 

Higher than expected product, service or operating costs;

 

Inability to leverage intellectual property rights; and

 

Delayed product or service introductions.

 

Additionally, the stock market may experience extreme price and volume fluctuations, which, without a direct relationship to our operating performance, may affect the market price of our shares. In the past, following periods of extreme volatility in the market price of a company’s securities, a securities class action litigation has often been instituted. A securities class action suit against us could result in substantial costs and divert our management’s time and attention, which would otherwise be used to benefit our business.

 

Issuing a large number of shares of Common Stock could significantly dilute our existing stockholders and negatively impact the market price of our shares.

 

The Equity Financing Agreement (Equity Line) with Jefferson Street Capital (the Selling Stockholder) provides that Jefferson Street Capital is committed to purchase, on an unconditional basis, shares of our Common Stock (“Put Shares”) at an aggregate price of up to $5,000,000 over the three-year term of the agreement. Upon delivery of a put notice, the purchase price of the Put Shares shall equal 88% of the lesser of the (i) “market price,” defined as the lowest traded price for any trading day during the 15 trading days immediately preceding the respective Put Date.  The Company may not deliver a new put notice until ten trading days after the clearing of the prior put notice. As a result, if we sell shares of Common Stock under the Equity Line, we will be issuing Common Stock at a discount below market prices, which could cause the market price of our Common Stock to decline and, if such issuances are significant in number, the amount of the decline in our market price could also be significant.

 

In general, we are unlikely to sell shares of Common Stock under the Equity Line at a time when the additional dilution to stockholders would be substantial, unless we are unable to obtain capital to meet our financial obligations from other sources on better terms at such time. However, if we do, the dilution that could result from such issuances could have a material adverse impact on existing stockholders and could cause the price of our Common Stock to fall rapidly based on the amount of such dilution.

 

The Selling Stockholder may sell a large number of shares, resulting in a substantial decrease to the value of shares held by existing stockholders.

 

Pursuant to the Equity Financing Agreement, we are prohibited from delivering a put notice to the Selling Stockholder to the extent that the issuance of shares causes the Selling Stockholder to beneficially own more than 4.99% of our then-outstanding shares of Common Stock. However, these restrictions do not prevent the Selling Stockholder from selling shares of Common Stock received in connection with the Equity Line and then receiving additional shares of Common Stock in connection with a subsequent issuance. In this way, the Selling Stockholder could sell more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock in a relatively short time frame while never holding more than 4.99% at any one time. As a result, our existing stockholders and new investors could experience substantial diminution in the value of their shares. Additionally, we do not have the right to control the timing and amount of any sales by the Selling Stockholder of shares issued under the Equity Line.

Trading in our shares could be restricted because of state securities “Blue Sky” laws that prohibit trading absent compliance with individual state laws.

 

Trading and transfer of our Common Stock may be restricted under certain securities laws promulgated by various states and foreign jurisdictions, commonly referred to as Blue Sky laws. Individual state Blue Sky laws could make it difficult or impossible to sell our common stock in those states. Many states require that an issuer’s securities be registered in their state, or appropriately exempted from registration, before the securities can trade in that state. We have no immediate plans to register our securities in any state. Absent compliance with such laws, our Common Stock may not be traded in such jurisdictions. Whether stockholders may trade their shares in a particular state is subject to various rules and regulations of that state.

 

We do not expect to pay dividends in the foreseeable future, which could make our stock less attractive to potential investors.

 

We have not declared any dividends since inception of the Company. Any future payment of cash dividends will be at the discretion of our Board of Directors after considering many factors, including operating results, financial condition and capital requirements. We plan to retain any future earnings and other cash resources for operation and business development and do not intend to declare or pay any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. Corporations that pay dividends may be viewed as a better investment than corporations that do not.

 

Trading in our common stock is subject to certain “penny stock” regulation, which could have a negative effect on the price of our shares in the marketplace.

 

Trading the Company’s common stock is subject to certain provisions, commonly referred to as “penny stock” rules, promulgated under the Exchange Act. A penny stock is generally defined as any non-exchange listed equity security that has a market price less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. These rules require additional disclosure by broker-dealers in connection with any trades involving a penny stock. The rules also impose various sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell penny stocks to persons other than established customers and accredited investors, generally institutions. These sales practice requirements include a broker-dealer to:

 

 

Make a special written suitability determination for a purchaser of penny stocks;

 

receive the purchaser’s prior written consent to execute the trade; and

 

deliver to a prospective purchaser of a penny stock, prior to the first transaction, a risk disclosure document relating to the penny stock market.

 

Consequently, penny stock rules may restrict the ability of broker-dealers to trade and/or maintain a market in our Common Stock, which could affect the ability of stockholders to sell their shares. These requirements may be considered cumbersome by broker-dealers and could impact their willingness to trade or make a market in our Common Stock, which could severely limit the market price and liquidity of our shares. Also, many prospective investors may not want to get involved with these additional administrative requirements, which could have a material adverse effect on the price and trading of our shares.

 

Future sales or the potential sale of a substantial number of shares of our common stock could cause our market value to decline.

 

As of the date of this Prospectus, we have 1,549,420,305 shares of Common Stock outstanding. Of these outstanding shares, approximately 69,355,435 shares are considered restricted securities and may be sold only pursuant to a registration statement, or the availability of an appropriate exemption from registration, such as Rule 144. Additionally, up to a total of 200,000,000 Put Shares that are the subject of this Prospectus can be purchased by the Selling Stockholder under the Equity Line, with such shares being freely tradable without restriction upon issuance and be immediately sold into the market. Sales of a substantial number of these restricted shares and Put Shares in the public markets, or the perception that these sales may occur, could cause the market price of our Common Stock to decline and materially impair our ability to raise capital through the sale of additional equity securities.

Table of Contents

 

In the event we issue additional Common Stock in the future, current stockholders could suffer immediate and significant dilution, which could have a negative effect on the value of their shares.

 

We are authorized to issue 1,890,000,000 shares of Common Stock, of which 340,155,242 shares are unissued. Also, an additional total of 200,000,000 Put Shares may be issued pursuant the Equity Line to which this Prospectus relates. Our Board of Directors (the “Board”) has broad discretion for future issuances of Common Stock, which may be issued for cash, property, services rendered or to be rendered, or for several other reasons. We could also issue shares to make it more difficult, or to discourage an attempt to obtain control of the Company by means of a merger, tender offer, proxy contest, or otherwise. For example, if in the due exercise of its fiduciary obligations the Board determines that a takeover proposal was not in the Company’s best interests, unissued shares could be issued by the board without stockholder approval. This might prevent, or render more difficult or costly, completion of an expected takeover transaction.

 

Other than the Put Shares issuable pursuant to the Equity Line, we do not presently contemplate additional issuances of significant amounts of Common Stock in the immediate future, except to raise addition capital. We presently do not have an agreement or understanding to sell additional shares. Our Board has authority, without action or vote of our stockholders, to issue all or part of the authorized but unissued shares. Any future issuance of shares will dilute the percentage ownership of existing stockholders and likely dilute the book value of the Common Stock, which could cause the price of our shares to decline and investors in our shares to lose all or a portion of their investment.

 

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

We will not receive any proceeds from the resale of shares offered by the Selling Stockholder hereby. Proceeds from sales of offered shares will be paid to Selling Stockholder. We have agreed to bear expenses relating to the registration of the Put Shares for the Selling Stockholder that are the subject of this Prospectus. The Selling Stockholder will be obligated to pay all underwriting discounts, selling commissions and expenses incurred by it for brokerage, accounting, tax or legal services or any other expenses incurred by the Selling Stockholder in connection with the sale of shares.

 

We will receive proceeds from the sale of shares to Jefferson Street Capital pursuant to our exercise of the put right granted to us by the Equity Line. Any such proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, which may include (i) acquisition of projects, (ii) refinancing or repayment of indebtedness, (iii) capital expenditures and working capital, and (iv) investing in equipment and property development.

DILUTION

 

We are not immediately selling any of the shares of our Common Stock in this Offering. All shares sold in this Offering will be issued to the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the terms of the Equity Financing Agreement. If all of the shares in this Prospectus are issued, we will have an additional 200,000,000 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding in addition to a total of shares outstanding 1,549,420,305 as of May 31, 2022. The Company may sell shares to Jefferson Street Capital at a price equal to 88% of the lesser of the (i) market price when the purchase price is calculated per the Agreement.  Each put notice shall be (i) in a minimum amount not less than $10,000, and (ii) a maximum amount up to the lesser of (a) $200,000, or (b) 200% of the Average Daily Trading Value. To the extent that the shares are sold at a discount of 12% to the fair market value, the use of the Equity Line could result in the dilution of the value of the outstanding common shares or in the depression of the stock price.

The ability of individual stockholders to trade their shares in a particular state may be subject to various rules and regulations of that state. Many states require that an issuer’s securities be registered in their state or appropriately exempted from registration before the securities are permitted to trade in that state. Presently, we have no plans to register our securities in any state.

Table of Contents

 

Penny Stock Rule

 

It is unlikely that our securities will be listed on any national or regional exchange or The NASDAQ Stock Market in the foreseeable future. Therefore, our shares will be subject to the provisions of Section 15(g) and Rule 15g-9 of the Exchange Act, commonly referred to as the “penny stock” rule. Section 15(g) sets forth certain requirements for broker-dealer transactions in penny stocks and Rule 15g-9(d)(1) incorporates the definition of penny stock as that used in Rule 3a51-1 of the Exchange Act.

 

The SEC generally defines a penny stock to be any equity security that has a market price less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. Rule 3a51-1 provides that any equity security is a penny stock unless that security is:

 

 

Registered and traded on a national securities exchange meeting specified criteria set by the SEC;

 

authorized for quotation on the NASDAQ Stock Market;

 

issued by a registered investment company;

 

excluded from the definition based on price (at least $5.00 per share) or the issuer’s net tangible assets; or

 

exempted from the definition by the SEC.

 

Broker-dealers who sell penny stocks to persons other than established customers and accredited investors, are subject to additional sales practice requirements. An accredited investor is generally defined as a person with assets more than $1,000,000, excluding their principal residence, or annual income exceeding $200,000, or $300,000 together with their spouse.

 

For transactions covered by these rules, broker-dealers must make a special suitability determination for the purchase of such securities and receive the purchaser’s written consent to the transaction prior to the purchase. Additionally, the rules require the delivery by the broker-dealer to the client, prior to the first transaction, of a risk disclosure document relating to the penny stock market. A broker-dealer also must disclose the commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative and current quotations for the securities. Finally, monthly statements must be sent to clients disclosing recent price information for the penny stocks held in the account and information on the limited market in penny stocks.

 

These requirements may be considered cumbersome by broker-dealers and impact the willingness of a broker-dealer to trade and/or make a market in our shares, which could affect the value at which our shares trade. Classification of the shares as penny stocks may affect the ability of stockholders to sell their shares and increases the risk of an investment in our shares.

 

Rule 144

 

A total of 69,355,435 shares of our Common Stock presently outstanding and not being registered for resale under this Prospectus, are deemed to be “restricted securities” as defined by Rule 144 promulgated by the Securities Act. Rule 144 is the common means for a stockholder to resell restricted securities and for affiliates, to sell their securities, either restricted or non-restricted control shares. In general, under Rule 144 as currently in effect, a person (or persons whose shares are required to be aggregated), including a person who may be deemed an “affiliate” of a company filing reports under the Exchange Act, who has beneficially owned restricted securities for at least six months may sell, within any three-month period, a number of shares that does not exceed the greater of:

 

 

1% of the then-outstanding shares of Common Stock; or

 

the average weekly trading volume of the common stock listed on a national securities exchange during the four calendar weeks preceding the date on which notice of such sale was filed under Rule 144.

 

Sales under Rule 144 are also subject to certain requirements as to the manner of sale, filing appropriate notice, and availability of current public information about the issuer. A stockholder of a reporting company who is not deemed to have been an affiliate at any time during the 90 days preceding a sale by such person, and who has held their shares for more than six months, may make unlimited resales under Rule 144, provided only that the issuer has available current public information about itself. A person who has not been an affiliate during the 90 days preceding a sale, and who has beneficially owned the restricted shares for at least one year, is entitled to sell such shares under Rule 144 without regard to any of the restrictions described above.

 

 
17

Table of Contents

 

After a one-year holding period, a non-affiliate may make unlimited sales with no other requirements or limitations.

 

We cannot estimate the number of shares of Common Stock that our existing stockholders will elect to sell under Rule 144. Also, we cannot predict the effect any future sales under Rule 144 may have on the market price of our Common Stock, but such sales may have a substantial depressing effect on such market price.

 

DIVIDEND POLICY

 

We have never declared cash dividends on our Common Stock, nor do we anticipate paying any dividends on our Common Stock in the foreseeable future.

 

DETERMINATION OF OFFERING PRICES

 

The actual offering price of the Selling Stockholder of shares covered by this Prospectus, will be determined by prevailing market prices at the time of sale, by private transactions negotiated by the Selling Stockholder, or otherwise described in the section title “Plan of Distribution.” The quoted or offering price of our shares of our Common Stock does not necessarily bear any relationship to our book value, assets, past operating results, financial condition or any other established criteria of value.

 

SELLING STOCKHOLDER

 

This Prospectus relates to the possible resale from time-to-time by the Selling Stockholder, Jefferson Street Capital, LLC, of any or all the Common Stock that has been or may be issued by us to the Selling Stockholder under the Equity Line. We are registering the Common Stock pursuant to the provisions of the Equity Financing Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement in order to permit the Selling Stockholder to offer the shares for resale from time-to-time. See the discussion below under the heading “Equity Financing Agreement with Jefferson Street Capital, LLC”.

 

The table below presents information regarding the Selling Stockholder and the Common Stock that it may offer from time-to-time pursuant to this Prospectus. This table is prepared based on information supplied to us by the Selling Stockholder, and reflects information as of April 19, 2022. The number of shares in the column “Maximum Shares to be Offered by this Prospectus” represents all of the Common Stock that the Selling Stockholder may offer under this Prospectus. The Selling Stockholder may sell some, all or none of its shares offered by this Prospectus. We do not know how long the Selling Stockholder will hold the shares before selling them, and we currently have no agreements, arrangements, or understandings with the Selling Stockholder regarding the sale of any of the shares.

 

Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with Rule 13d-3(d) promulgated by the SEC under the Exchange Act, and includes Common Stock with respect to which the Selling Stockholder has voting and investment power. With respect to the Equity Line with the Selling Stockholder, because the purchase price of the Common Stock issuable under the Equity Financing Agreement is determined on each settlement date, the number of shares that may actually be sold by us under the Equity Financing Agreement may be fewer than the number of shares being offered by this Prospectus. The fourth column assumes the sale of all shares offered by the Selling Stockholder pursuant to this Prospectus.

Assumes the sale of all shares being offered pursuant to this Prospectus.

(2)

The Selling Stockholder’s principal business is that of a private investment firm. We have been advised that the Selling Stockholder is not an independent broker-dealer, and that neither the Selling Stockholder nor any of its affiliates, is an affiliate or an associated person of any independent broker-dealer. We have been further advised that Seth Ahdoot of the Selling Stockholder, has sole voting and dispositive powers with respect to the Common Stock being Registered for sale by the Selling Stockholder.

(3)

None of the shares beneficially owned by Selling Stockholder prior the Company entering into the Equity Line are being registered as a part of the Offering. In accordance with Rule 13d-3(d) under the Exchange Act, we have excluded from the number of shares beneficially owned prior to the Offering, all of the shares that the Selling Stockholder may be required to purchase under the Equity Financing Agreement. This is because the issuance of such shares is solely at our discretion and is subject to certain conditions, the satisfaction of all of which are outside of the Selling Stockholder’s control, including, but not limited to, the Registration Statement of which this Prospectus is a part, becoming and remaining effective. Furthermore, the maximum dollar value of each put of common stock to the Selling Stockholder under the Equity Financing Agreement is subject to certain agreed upon threshold limitations set forth therein. Also, under the terms of the Equity Financing Agreement, we may not issue shares of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder to the extent that the Selling Stockholder or any of its affiliates would, at any time, beneficially own more than 4.99% of our outstanding common stock.

 

Equity Financing Agreement with Jefferson Street Capital, LLC

 

On April 3, 2022, we executed an Equity Financing Agreement with Jefferson Street Capital, LLC, the Selling Stockholder, which was finalized and effected on April 3, 2022 (the “Equity Line”). Under the Equity Line, we have the right, but not the obligation, to sell to Jefferson Street Capital, and Jefferson Street Capital is committed to purchase, on an unconditional basis, shares of our common stock (the “Put Shares”) at an aggregate price of up to $5,000,000 (the “Maximum Commitment Amount”) for a period of up to three (3) years. The term of the Equity Financing Agreement commenced on April 3, 2022 and will end on the earlier of (i) the date on which the Selling Stockholder has purchased Put Shares pursuant to the Equity Financing Agreement equal to the Maximum Commitment Amount, (ii) April 3, 2025, or (iii) written notice of termination by the Company.

 

The Equity Line provides the Company with a $5,000,000 line of credit to be used by us for general corporate purposes. Under the Equity Financing Agreement, we have the right, from time-to-time at our discretion, to deliver to Jefferson Street Capital a “put notice” stating the specified number of Put Shares and purchase price we intend to sell to Jefferson Street Capital, that it is obligated to purchase. The Company’s right to deliver a put notice commences on the date a registration statement registering the Put Shares becomes effective. Upon delivery of a put notice, the Company must deliver the Put Shares requested as Deposit Withdrawal at Custodian (DWAC) shares to the Selling Stockholder within two trading days. In connection with the transactions contemplated by the Equity Financing Agreement, the Company is required to register the Put Shares with the SEC.

 

The amount of proceeds the Company receives pursuant to each put notice is determined by multiplying the number of Put Shares requested, by the applicable purchase price. The purchase price for each put notice shall be equal to 88% of the lesser of the (i) “market price,” defined as the lowest traded price per share for any trading day during the fifteen (15) trading days immediately preceding delivery of the put notice.  Within four trading days the Jefferson Street Capital will deliver the total proceeds to the company via wire transfer.

 

Each put notice shall be (i) in a minimum amount not less than $10,000, and (ii) a maximum amount up to the lesser of (a) $200,000, or (b) 200% of the Average Daily Trading Value. Average Daily Trading Value is defined as the average trading volume of our common stock in the fifteen (15) trading days immediately preceding delivery of the respective put notice (the “pricing period”), multiplied by the lowest traded price of the of our shares during the pricing period. We may not deliver a new put notice until ten trading days after the clearing of the prior put notice. Because of these limitations, it is possible that over the term of the Equity line, the Company may not have the ability to fully draw the entire $5,000,000 credit line.

In order to deliver a put notice, certain conditions set forth in the Equity Financing Agreement must be met. In addition, the Company is prohibited from delivering a put notice (i) if the purchase of the Put Shares by the Selling Stockholder pursuant to such put notice would, when aggregated with all other shares previously purchased under the Equity Line, exceed the Maximum Commitment Amount; or (ii) if the purchase of the Put Shares pursuant to the put notice would, when aggregated with all other Company common stock then owned by the Selling Stockholder, result in the Selling Stockholder beneficially owning more than 4.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s Common Stock.

 

Based upon the trading price of our Common Stock as of April 19, 2022, we would have issued an aggregate of 833,000,000 shares of Common Stock under the Equity Line if the entire $5,000,000 amount of potential shares issuable to Jefferson Street Capital had been drawn. Such shares would represent approximately 35% of our outstanding Common Stock as of April 19, 2022 resulting in significant ownership dilution to our existing Common stockholders.

 

As a term of the Equity Financing Agreement, we entered into a Registration Rights Agreement with Jefferson Street Capital, whereby we agreed to register for resale by the Selling Stockholder the shares of Common Stock purchased pursuant to the Equity Financing Agreement. Accordingly, we filed a registration statement with the SEC on Form S-1, of which this Prospectus is a part. We have also agreed to use our reasonable best efforts to keep the registration statement effective until the earlier of (i) the date the Selling Stockholder may sell all of the Put shares without restriction pursuant to Rule 144, and (ii) the date on which the Selling Stockholder shall have sold all of the Put Shares covered by the registration statement.

 

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

 

Commencing the date of this Prospectus, Jefferson Street Capital, the Selling Stockholder identified herein, may offer and sell up to an aggregate of 200,000,000 shares of our Common Stock. The Selling Stockholder, including any of its pledgees, assignees and successors-in-interest may, from time-to-time, offer and sell any or all of their shares covered hereby, that were acquired under the Equity Line. Sales may occur on the OTC Markets Pink Current Information Tier or any other stock exchange, market or trading facility on which the securities are traded, or in private transactions. These sales may be at the prevailing market price or related to the then current market price, fixed prices or negotiated prices.

 

The Selling Stockholder may use any one or more of the following methods when selling securities:

 

 

ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits purchasers;

 

block trades in which the broker-dealer will attempt to sell the securities as agent, but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;

 

purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its account;

 

an exchange distribution in accordance with the rules of the applicable exchange;

 

privately negotiated transactions;

 

transactions through broker-dealers that agree with the Selling Stockholder to sell a specified number of such securities at a stipulated price per security;

 

through writings or settlements of options or other hedging transactions, whether through an options exchange or otherwise;

 

combinations of any such methods of sale; or

 

Broker-dealers engaged by the Selling Stockholder may arrange for other broker-dealers to participate in sales. Broker-dealers may receive commissions or discounts from the Selling Stockholder (or, if any broker-dealer acts as agent for the purchaser of securities, from the purchaser) in amounts to be negotiated, but, except as set forth in a supplement to this Prospectus, in the case of an agency transaction not in excess of a customary brokerage commission in compliance with FINRA Rule 2121; which also applies in the case of a principal transaction a markup or markdown.

Table of Contents

 

The Selling Stockholder and any broker-dealers or agents that are involved in selling the securities are deemed to be “underwriters” within the meaning of the Securities Act in connection with such sales. In such event, any commissions received by such broker-dealers or agents and any profit on the resale of the securities purchased by them, may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act. The Selling Stockholder has informed the Company that it does not have any written or oral agreement or understanding, directly or indirectly, with any person to distribute the securities.

 

The Company is required to pay certain fees and expenses incurred by the Company incident to the registration of the securities. The Company has agreed to indemnify the Selling Stockholder against certain losses, claims, damages and liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act.

 

Because the Selling Stockholder may be deemed to be an underwriter within the meaning of the Securities Act, it will be subject to the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act including Rule 172 thereunder. The Selling Stockholder has advised us that there is no underwriter or coordinating broker acting in connection with the proposed sale of the resale securities by the Selling Stockholder.

 

We have agreed to keep this Prospectus effective until the earlier of (i) the date on which the securities may be resold by the Selling Stockholder without registration and without regard to any volume or manner-of-sale limitations by reason of Rule 144, without the requirement for the Company to be in compliance with the current public information under Rule 144 under the Securities Act or any other rule of similar effect or (ii) the sale of all of the securities pursuant to this Prospectus or Rule 144 under the Securities Act or any other rule of similar effect. The resale securities will be sold only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers if required under applicable state securities laws. In addition, in certain states, the resale securities covered hereby may not be sold unless they have been registered or qualified for sale in the applicable state or an exemption from the registration or qualification requirement is available and is complied with.

 

Applicable rules and regulations under the Exchange Act, any person engaged in the distribution of the resale securities may not simultaneously engage in market making activities with respect to the Common Stock for the applicable restricted period, as defined in Regulation M, prior to the commencement of the distribution. In addition, the Selling Stockholder will be subject to applicable provisions of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, including Regulation M, which may limit the timing of purchases and sales of securities of the Common Stock by the Selling Stockholder or any other person. We will make copies of this Prospectus available to the Selling Stockholder and have informed it of the need to deliver a copy of this Prospectus to each purchaser at or prior to the time of the sale (including by compliance with Rule 172 under the Securities Act.

 

To the best of our knowledge, the Selling Stockholder is not a broker-dealer or an affiliate of a broker-dealer.

 

SHARES ELIGIBLE FOR FUTURE SALE

 

We cannot predict the effect, if any, that market sales of our Common Stock, or the availability of shares of our Common Stock for sale, will have on the prevailing market price of our shares from time-to-time. Future sales of our common stock in the public market, or the availability of such shares for sale in the public market, could adversely affect market prices prevailing from time-to-time. The availability for sale of a substantial number of shares of our Common Stock acquired through the exercise of outstanding convertible instruments could materially adversely affect the market price of our shares. In addition, sales of our Common Stock in the public market after the applicable restrictions lapse, as described below, or the perception that those sales may occur, could cause the prevailing market price to decrease or to be lower than it might be in the absence of those sales or perceptions.

Sale of Restricted Shares

 

As of April 19, 2022 there were 1,549,420,305 shares of our Common Stock outstanding. The 200,000,000 shares of Common Stock being offered by this Prospectus, less the shares already sold, will be freely tradable, other than by “affiliates,” as defined in Rule 144(a) under the Securities Act, without restriction or registration under the Securities Act. In addition, 69,355,435 outstanding shares of Common Stock that were issued by us in private transactions are, or will be, eligible in the future for public sale if registered under the Securities Act or sold in accordance with Rule 144 under the Securities Act. These remaining shares are “restricted securities” within the meaning of Rule 144 under the Securities Act.

 

Rule 144

 

In general, under Rule 144, as currently in effect, a person (or persons whose shares are required to be aggregated), including a person who may be deemed an “affiliate” of a company, who has beneficially owned restricted securities for at least six months may sell, within any three-month period, a number of shares that does not exceed the greater of: (1) 1% of the then-outstanding shares of common stock, or (2) if and when the common stock is listed on a national securities exchange, the average weekly trading volume of the common stock during the four calendar weeks preceding the date on which notice of such sale was filed under Rule 144. Sales under Rule 144 are also subject to certain requirements as to the manner of sale, notice, and availability of current public information about our Company. A person who is not deemed to have been an affiliate of us at any time during the 90 days preceding a sale by such person, and who has beneficially owned the restricted shares for at least one year, is entitled to sell such shares under Rule 144 without regard to any of the restrictions described above.

 

We cannot estimate the number of shares of our Common Stock that our existing stockholders will elect to sell under Rule 144.

 

LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

From time-to-time, we may be involved in various claims, lawsuits, and disputes with third parties incidental to the normal operations of the business. In accordance with the settlement agreement (settling claims for breach of contract and distribution responsibilities arising from the distribution agreement between the parties) executed between Nimbo Tracking LLC (Plaintiff) and Sky Force Technologies Inc., and James Kwon (Defendants) on May 21, 2021 settlement was reached between the parties under non-disclosed terms which were deemed non-material to the Company.

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.

 

 
25

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 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

 

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.

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.

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Capital Resources and Liquidity

 

Current Assets and Liabilities, Working Capital

 

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had total current assets of $254,061, an 46% increase from December 31, 2021. This decrease was mostly due to a $117,812 increase in inventory.

 

The Company’s current liabilities as of March 31, 2022 were $1,157,182, a 7% increase over those reported as of December 31, 2021. However, $66,846 (or 2%) of the Company’s current liabilities were deferred revenues, net to be recognized in future periods. The increase in current liabilities was mostly due to a $119,312 increase in the current portion of the notes payable and convertible debentures.

 

As of March 31, 2022, IGEN had negative working capital of $903,121. 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.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company raised approximately $308,000 in financings and converted approximately $113,000 of preferred stock 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 March 31, 2022, the Company’s total assets were $835,970, a 10% increase over December 31, 2021, due primarily to the increase in current assets previously discussed. The majority of the Company’s assets remain $505,508 in goodwill associated with the acquisition of Nimbo in 2014.

 

As of March 31, 2022, the Company’s total liabilities were $1,517,973, which reflects $74,870 in long-term deferred revenue, net in addition to the $1,157,182 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 March 31, 2023. Total liabilities increased by 11% over the previous year, however 9%, or $141,716 of the Company’s year-end total liabilities was deferred revenue, net, compared with $145,485 of deferred revenue, net reported as of December 31, 2021.

 

The above resulted in net assets as of March 31, 2022 being ($794,387) and an accumulated deficit of $19,358,959.

 

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.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

As a smaller reporting company, the Company is not required to provide the information required by this item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

The Company carried out an evaluation, with the participation of all the Company’s officers, of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2022. The conclusions of the Company’s principal officers was that the controls and procedures in place were not effective such that, the information required to be disclosed in our exchange and commission reports was a) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the appropriate exchange and commission rules and forms, and b) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive offer and chief operating officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

As of March 31, 2022, 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.

Description of Products and Services

 

The Company’s principal business is the development and marketing of software services for the automotive and fleet management industry. The Company works with T-Mobile and its distribution partners to provide direct and secure access to information on vehicle assets and driver performance. The software services are based on the AWS Cloud Infrastructure delivered to customers over the wireless network and accessed from consumer mobile or desktop devices. The software services are marketed through automotive dealers, financial institutions, and government channels as IGEN commercial and consumer brands: Nimbo Tracking, CU Trak, and Medallion GPS.

 

The Company’s most recent NextGen Platform is built on the Amazon’s Web Service (AWS) infrastructure and based on coding methodology that leverages Facebook and Google design techniques to present a seamless user interface regardless of access methods including smartphones, tablets, desktops, and third party application environments. The AWS infrastructure offers reliability, security, and scalability to support millions of users or assets and an Application Programming Interface (API) friendly environment that adapts to a broad range of data sources to support the changing needs of the consumer and their families. The NextGen Platform is optimized to serve a broad range of consumer markets including online purchases and renewals.

 

The Digital Telematics Signature (DTC) is IGEN’s patented proprietary algorithm for measuring driver behavior for both commercial and consumer markets regardless of the data sources. Whether driving in high-density traffic or at high speeds over the expressway, the data is normalized across a relatively large sample to create a consistent and accurate driver score based on actuarial metrics. With programmable weighting of driving events such as speed, sudden-braking, harsh-turns, traffic flow, and vehicle profiling, a “DTC” or weighted score is created over an extended period-of-time.

Marketing and Sales

 

The Company’s product and services are sold primarily through Master Distributors and Sales Agents, which include T-Mobile’s Master Agent and SMB sales channels, Michigan Credit Union League Service Corporation, and County Executive of Americas. Marketing initiatives are jointly developed with each channel partner based on the anticipated needs and drivers for each market. The Company is working with T-Mobile’s Ecommerce initiatives in offering product and services direct to businesses.

 

Our Business Strategy

 

The Company’s strategy is to achieve market leadership of its target markets through product and service innovation, cost efficiency, and quality customer service.

 

Employees

 

Company operates with less than 10 full time staff and works with third-party contractors for product and infrastructure development, legal, finance, and hardware sourcing.

 

Competition

 

Competition varies across the consumer automotive and light-fleet industry. Spireon a privately held company offers similar services to automotive dealerships but holds no patents in managing driver behavior. There are many fleet service providers offering a range of services but with much higher cost structures, especially when offering solutions to smaller and lighter commercial fleets. The Company’s Medallion GPS PRO solution was development for a specific segment of the commercial fleet industry which presently has far fewer competitors.

 

Research and Development

 

The Company’s research and development is managed internally but executed through third-party developers. The IoT industry is a complex eco-system of technologies requiring a broad range of technical skills in both hardware and software development. Contracting subject matter experts on a project basis has proven to be cost efficient and effective.

 

Intellectual Property

 

As a general practice, we will rely upon patent, copyright, trademark and trade secret laws to protect and maintain our proprietary rights for our products. There are no inherent factors or circumstances associated with this industry, or any of the products or services that we expect to be providing that would give rise to any patent, trademark or license infringements or violations.

Our web domain and IP address as well as Company information will be protected by our domain host.

 

Strategic Relationships

 

The Company places great value in strategic relationships as the IoT Industry evolves across many industries as part of the development of 5G wireless technologies. The Company has development strategic relationships with its primary wireless carrier T-Mobile, its hardware supplier Positioning Universal Inc., the Michigan Credit Union League Service Corporation, and County Executives of America.

Compensation Committee Interlocks and Insider Participation

 

The Company has no compensation committee. The Board of Directors as a whole acts in the capacity of a compensation committee. All executive officers of the Company are also directors of the Company and as such were and are able to vote on matters of compensation. Though the Company is not legally obligated to establish a compensation committee, we may do so when deemed advisable by the board.

 

Compensation Committee Report

 

As a smaller reporting company, the Company is not required to report the Compensation Discussion and Analysis required by Item 402(b) of Regulation S-K, and as such there was no review or recommendation as to its inclusion in this report.

 

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.

Table of Contents

 

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.

IGEN NETWORKS CORP.

Consolidated Financial Statements

For the Years Ended December 31, 2021 and 2020

  

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.

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.

 

 
F-7

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.

 

 
F-8

Table of Contents

 

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 carry-forwards and
