EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

This Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A (this “Form 10-K/A”) to the Annual Report on Form 10-K of MassRoots, Inc. (the “Company,” “MassRoots,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) for the year ended December 31, 2020, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 16, 2021 (the “Original 10-K”), is being filed for the purposes of including the information required by Part III (Items 10-14) of Form 10-K. At that time the Company filed the Original 10-K, it intended to file a definitive proxy statement for its 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders within 120 days after the end of its fiscal year pursuant to Regulation 14A promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Because the Company has not filed the definitive proxy statement within such 120-day period, the omitted information is filed herewith and provided below as required.

 

Further, because the Company is a “smaller reporting company,” as defined in Item 10 of Regulation S-K promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), the Company has elected to provide in this Amendment certain scaled disclosures permitted under the Exchange Act for smaller reporting companies. Except as set forth in this Amendment, no other changes are made to the Original 10-K. Unless expressly stated, this Amendment does not reflect events occurring after the filing of the Original 10-K, nor does it modify or otherwise update in any way the disclosures contained in the Original 10-K. Accordingly, this Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Original 10-K and with the Company’s filings with the SEC subsequent to the filing of the Original 10-K.

 

Pursuant to Rule 12b-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, this Amendment also contains certifications pursuant to Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, which are attached hereto. Because no financial statements have been included in this Amendment and this Amendment does not contain or amend any disclosure with respect to Items 307 and 308 of Regulation S-K, paragraphs 3, 4, and 5 of the certifications have been omitted.

PART III

 

ITEM 10. DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 

Governance of Our Company

 

We seek to maintain high standards of business conduct and corporate governance, which we believe are fundamental to the overall success of our business, serving our Stockholders well and maintaining our integrity in the marketplace. Our corporate governance guidelines and Code of Conduct and Ethics (that applies to its principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer, or controller or persons performing similar functions), together with our Certificate of Incorporation, Bylaws, and the charters for each of our Board committees, form the basis for our corporate governance framework. We also are subject to certain provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the rules and regulations of the SEC. The full text of the Code of Conduct and Ethics is available on our website at https://massrootsinvestors.com/corporate-governance/governance-documents and is also filed as an exhibit to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 as filed with the SEC on April 1, 2015.

 

There are currently no members of the Board serving on our Audit Committee, Compensation Committee, or Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, and our Board will act in place of such committees until such time that members are appointed to such committees.

 

Our Board of Directors

 

Our Board currently consists of one member. The number of directors on our Board can be evaluated and amended by action of our Board.

 

Our Board has decided that it would judge the independence of its directors by the heightened standards established by the Nasdaq Stock Market, despite the Company not being subject to these standards at this time. Our Board considers a director to be independent when the director is not an officer or employee of the Company or its subsidiaries, does not have any relationship which would, or could reasonably appear to, materially interfere with the independent judgment of such director, and the director otherwise meets the independence requirements under the listing standards of the Nasdaq Stock Market and the rules and regulations of the SEC. Based on the foregoing, the Board has determined that none of our directors currently meet the independence standards established by the Nasdaq Stock Market and the applicable independence rules and regulations of the SEC, including the rules relating to the independence of the members of our Audit Committee, Compensation Committee, and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.

 

Stockholder Communications. Although we do not have a formal policy regarding communications with the Board, Stockholders may communicate with the Board by writing to us at 1560 Broadway, Suite 17-105, Denver, Colorado 80202, Attention: Chairman. Stockholders who would like their submission directed to a member of the Board may so specify, and the communication will be forwarded, as appropriate. Please note that the foregoing communication procedure does not apply to (i) Stockholder proposals pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 14a-8 and communications made in connection with such proposals or (ii) service of process or any other notice in a legal proceeding.

 

Board and Committee Meetings

 

During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, our Board held no meetings and operated solely by unanimous written consent. For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, our Board was composed of a sole member who attended every meeting of our Board. Our Audit Committee, Compensation Committee, Nominating and Corporate Governance committee did not have any members and did not meet during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020. The Company did not have an annual meeting of Stockholders during the prior year.

Board Committees

 

On December 9, 2015, our Board designated the following three committees of the Board: the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee, and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. The Company’s designated committees currently do not have any members and the Board acts in place of such committees.

 

Audit Committee. The Audit Committee is responsible for, among other things, overseeing the financial reporting and audit process and evaluating our internal controls over financial reporting. The Audit Committee currently does not have any members nor does it have an audit committee financial expert and the Board acts in place of such committee. Our Board has determined that given its relatively small size, the function of the Audit Committee could be performed by our Board as a whole without unduly burdening the duties and responsibilities of our Board member. A copy of the Audit Committee Charter is available on our website at https://massrootsinvestors.com/corporate-governance/governance-documents.

 

Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee is responsible for, among other things, establishing and overseeing the Company’s executive and equity compensation programs, establishing performance goals and objectives, and evaluating performance against such goals and objectives. The Compensation Committee currently does not have any members and the Board acts in place of such committee. Our Board has determined that given its relatively small size, the function of the Compensation Committee could be performed by our Board as a whole without unduly burdening the duties and responsibilities of our Board member. A copy of the Compensation Committee Charter is available on our website at https://massrootsinvestors.com/corporate-governance/governance-documents.

 

When active, the Compensation Committee may form and delegate a subcommittee consisting of one or more members to perform the functions of the Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee may engage outside advisers, including outside auditors, attorneys and consultants, as it deems necessary to discharge its responsibilities. The Compensation Committee has sole authority to retain and terminate any compensation expert or consultant to be used to provide advice on compensation levels or assist in the evaluation of director, president/Chief Executive Officer or senior executive compensation, including sole authority to approve the fees of any expert or consultant and other retention terms. In addition, the Compensation Committee considers, but is not bound by, the recommendations of our Chief Executive Officer with respect to the compensation packages of our other executive officers.

 

Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for, among other things, identifying and recommending candidates to fill vacancies occurring between annual Stockholder meetings and reviewing the Company’s policies and programs relating to matters of corporate citizenship, including public issues of significance to the Company and its Stockholders. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee currently does not have any members and the sole member of the Board acts in place of such committee. Our Board has determined that given its relatively small size, the function of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee could be performed by our Board as a whole without unduly burdening the duties and responsibilities of our Board member. A copy of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee Charter is available on our website at https://massrootsinvestors.com/corporate-governance/governance-documents.

 

Risk Oversight

 

The Board is primarily responsible for overseeing our risk management processes. The Board receives and reviews periodic reports from management, auditors, legal counsel and others, as appropriate, regarding the Company’s assessment of risks. The Board focuses on the most significant risks facing the Company and our general risk management strategy, and also ensures that the risks we undertake are consistent with the Board’s risk parameters. While the Board oversees the risk management process, our management is responsible for day-to-day risk management and, if management identifies new or additional significant risks, it brings such risks to the attention of the Board.

 

Board Leadership Structure

 

Isaac Dietrich is the Chief Executive Officer of the Company and the Chairman and sole member of the Board. The Chairman of the Board presides at all meetings of the Board, unless such position is vacant, in which case, the Chief Executive Officer of the Company would preside.

 

The Company has no fixed policy with respect to the separation of the offices of the Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. Given the Company’s small size and management team, the Company believes that it is appropriate to not separate the offices of the Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. The Board will review this determination from time to time.

 

Policy on Hedging the Economic Risks of Equity Ownership.

 

The Company has no policy regarding hedging the economic risks of equity ownership for the executive team or directors of the Company and the Company does not engage in this practice.

Changes to security holder director nomination procedures

 

The Company has not adopted procedures for considering director candidates submitted by stockholders under Item 407(c)(2)(iv), Regulation S-K.

 

Delinquent Section 16(a) Reports

 

Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires our directors and executive officers and persons who beneficially own more than 10% of our outstanding shares of Common Stock (collectively, “Reporting Persons”) to file with the SEC initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership in our Common Stock and other equity securities. Such persons are required by SEC regulations to furnish to us copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file. Based solely upon a review of Forms 3, 4, and 5 furnished to the Company, the Company believes that, that during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, all filing requirements applicable to the Reporting Persons were timely met except:

 

Jesus Quintero failed to report one transaction on time on a Form 4.

Summary of the Prior Plans

 

Authorized Shares

 

No shares of our Common Stock are reserved for issuance pursuant to the 2014 Plan, 2015 Plan, the 2016 Plan and the 2017 Plan. There are currently 190,000 shares of our Common Stock available for issuance pursuant to the 2018 Plan. Shares of Common Stock issued under our Prior Plans may be authorized but unissued or reacquired shares of our Common Stock. Shares of Common Stock subject to stock awards granted under our Prior Plans that expire or terminate without being exercised in full, or that are paid out in cash rather than in shares of Common Stock, will not reduce the number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance under our Prior Plans. Additionally, shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to stock awards under our Prior Plans that we repurchase or that are forfeited, as well as shares of Common Stock reacquired by us as consideration for the exercise or purchase price of a stock award, will become available for future grant under our Prior Plans.

 

Administration

 

Our Board, or a duly authorized committee thereof (collectively, the “Committee”), has the authority to administer our Prior Plans. Our Board may also delegate to one or more of our officers the authority to designate employees other than Directors and officers to receive specified stock, which, in respect to those awards, said officer or officers shall then have all authority that the Committee would have.

 

6

 

 

Subject to the terms of our Prior Plans, the Committee has the authority to determine the terms of awards, including recipients, the exercise price or strike price of stock awards, if any, the number of shares of Common Stock subject to each stock award, the fair market value of a share of our Common Stock, the vesting schedule applicable to the awards, together with any vesting acceleration, the form of consideration, if any, payable upon exercise or settlement of the stock award and the terms and conditions of the award agreements for use under the Prior Plans. The Committee has the power to modify outstanding awards under the Prior Plans, subject to the terms of the Prior Plans and applicable law. Subject to the terms of our Prior Plans, the Committee has the authority to reprice any outstanding option or stock appreciation right, cancel and re-grant any outstanding option or stock appreciation right in exchange for new stock awards, cash or other consideration, or take any other action that is treated as a repricing under generally accepted accounting principles, with the consent of any adversely affected participant.

 

Stock Options

 

Stock options may be granted under the Prior Plans. The exercise price of options granted under our Prior Plans must at least be equal to the fair market value of our Common Stock on the date of grant. The term of an ISO may not exceed 10 years, except that with respect to any participant who owns more than 10% of the voting power of all classes of our outstanding stock, the term must not exceed 5 years and the exercise price must equal at least 110% of the fair market value on the grant date. The Committee will determine the methods of payment of the exercise price of an option, which may include cash, shares of Common Stock or other property acceptable to the Committee, as well as other types of consideration permitted by applicable law. No single participant may receive more than 25% of the total options awarded in any single year. Subject to the provisions of our Prior Plans, the Committee determines the other terms of options.

 

Performance Shares

 

Performance shares may be granted under our Prior Plans. Performance shares are awards that will result in a payment to a participant only if performance goals established by the administrator are achieved or the awards otherwise vest. The Committee will establish organizational or individual performance goals or other vesting criteria in its discretion, which, depending on the extent to which they are met, will determine the number and/or the value of performance shares to be paid out to participants. After the grant of a performance share, the Committee, in its sole discretion, may reduce or waive any performance criteria or other vesting provisions for such performance shares. The Committee, in its sole discretion, may pay earned performance units or performance shares in the form of cash, in shares of Common Stock or in some combination thereof, per the terms of the agreement approved by the Committee and delivered to the participant. Such agreement will state all terms and condition of the agreement.

 

Restricted Stock

 

The terms and conditions of any restricted stock awards granted to a participant will be set forth in an award agreement and, subject to the provisions in the Prior Plans, will be determined by the Committee. Under a restricted stock award, we issue shares of our Common Stock to the recipient of the award, subject to vesting conditions and transfer restrictions that lapse over time or upon achievement of performance conditions. The Committee will determine the vesting schedule and performance objectives, if any, applicable to each restricted stock award. Unless the Committee determines otherwise, the recipient may vote and receive dividends on shares of restricted stock issued under our Prior Plans.

 

Other Share-Based Awards and Cash Awards

 

The Committee may make other forms of equity-based awards under our Prior Plans, including, for example, deferred shares, stock bonus awards and dividend equivalent awards. In addition, our Prior Plans authorizes us to make annual and other cash incentive awards based on achieving performance goals that are pre-established by our compensation committee.

 

7

 

 

Merger, Consolidation or Asset Sale

 

If the Company is merged or consolidated with another entity or sells or otherwise disposes of substantially all of its assets to another company while awards or options remain outstanding under the Prior Plans, unless provisions are made in connection with such transaction for the continuance of the Prior Plans and/or the assumption or substitution of such awards or options with new options or stock awards covering the stock of the successor company, or parent or subsidiary thereof, with appropriate adjustments as to the number and kind of shares and prices, then all outstanding options and stock awards which have not been continued, assumed or for which a substituted award has not been granted shall, whether or not vested or then exercisable, unless otherwise specified in the relevant agreements, terminate immediately as of the effective date of any such merger, consolidation or sale.

 

Change in Capitalization

 

If the Company shall effect a subdivision or consolidation of shares of Common Stock or other capital readjustment, the payment of a stock dividend, or other increase or reduction of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding, without receiving consideration therefore in money, services or property, then awards amounts, type, limitations, and other relevant consideration shall be appropriately and proportionately adjusted. The Committee shall make such adjustments, and its determinations shall be final, binding and conclusive.

 

Prior Plan Amendment or Termination

 

Our Board has the authority to amend, suspend, or terminate our Prior Plans, provided that such action does not materially impair the existing rights of any participant without such participant’s written consent.

Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management

 

The following table sets forth certain information regarding the beneficial ownership of our Common Stock and Series C Preferred Stock by (i) each person who, to our knowledge, owns more than 5% of our Common Stock or Series C Preferred Stock, (ii) our current director and the named executive officer identified under the heading “Executive Compensation” and (iii) all of our current directors and executive officers as a group. We have determined beneficial ownership in accordance with applicable rules of the SEC, and the information reflected in the table below is not necessarily indicative of beneficial ownership for any other purpose. Under applicable SEC rules, beneficial ownership includes any shares as to which a person has sole or shared voting power or investment power and any shares which the person has the right to acquire within 60 days after April 29, 2021 through the exercise of any option, warrant or right or through the conversion of any convertible security. Unless otherwise indicated in the footnotes to the table below and subject to community property laws where applicable, we believe, based on the information furnished to us that each of the persons named in this table has sole voting and investment power with respect to the shares indicated as beneficially owned.

The information set forth in the table below is based on 498,174,656 shares of our Common Stock and 1,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock issued and outstanding on April 29, 2021. In computing the number of shares of Common Stock and Series C Preferred Stock beneficially owned by a person and the percentage ownership of that person, we deemed to be outstanding all shares of Common Stock or Series C Preferred Stock subject to options, warrants, rights or other convertible securities held by that person that are currently exercisable or will be exercisable within 60 days after April 29, 2021. We did not deem these shares outstanding, however, for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of any other person.

Agreements with Jesus Quintero and Affiliates of Jesus Quintero

 

On December 15, 2020, the Company entered into a settlement agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) with JDE Development, LLC (“JDE”), a Florida limited liability company wholly-owned and managed by Jesus Quintero, the Company’s former Chief Financial Officer, in connection with the outstanding sum of $89,143 due to JDE for the services of Jesus Quintero as the Chief Financial Officer of the Company pursuant to that certain CFO Services Agreement entered into as of April 1, 2018, by and between the Company and Jesus Quintero. Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, the Company agreed to pay JDE $25,000 (the “Cash Settlement”) and to enter into a convertible note with JDE in the principal amount of $64,143 (the “Note”). In addition, both parties agreed, on behalf of themselves, their past and present shareholders, members, directors, employees, managers, parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, principals, officers, related entities, assigns and successors, to irrevocably and fully release each other, and their respective past and present shareholders, members, directors, employees, managers, parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, principals, officers, related entities, assigns and successors, from any and all claims and causes of action, suits, debts, dues, sums of money, accounts, reckonings, bonds, bills specialties, covenants, contracts, controversies, agreements, promises, variances, trespasses, damages, judgments, extents, executions, claims and demands whatsoever at law or in equity, upon or by reason of any matter, cause or thing of any nature whatsoever, including but not limited to claims related to sums payable by the Company to JDE.

 

In accordance with the Settlement Agreement, (i) on December 23, 2020, the Company paid JDE the Cash Settlement, and (ii) on December 15, 2020, the Company entered into the Note with JDE for a principal amount of $64,143. The Note had a maturity date of June 15, 2021 and accrued interest at a rate of 12% per annum. The holder has the right to convert the Outstanding Balance of the Note at any time into shares of common stock of the Company at a conversion price of $0.0003 per share, subject to adjustment. In the event of default, the conversion price shall be 60% of the average of the three lowest closing bid prices of the Company’s common stock during the 20 days prior to the conversion date. The shares of Series Y Preferred Stock are not convertible to the extent that (i) the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation has not been amended to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock of the Company, or (ii) the holder (together with such holder’s affiliates) would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion (which provision may be increased to a maximum of 9.99% by the holder by written notice from such holder to the Company, which notice shall be effective 61 calendar days after the date of such notice). As a result of the beneficial conversion feature of the Note, debt discount of $64,143 was recognized with a corresponding increase in additional paid-in capital.

 

On December 24, 2020, the holder converted $64,143 of principal into 3.20716 shares of Series Y preferred shares having a stated value of $64,143, resulting in a reduction in debt discount by $60,971 and a loss on settlement of $60,971. As of December 31, 2020, the remaining carrying value of the Note was $0, net of debt discount of $0. As of December 31, 2020, accrued interest payable of $0 was outstanding on the Note.

 

Director Independence

 

Our Board has decided that it would judge the independence of its directors by the heightened standards established by the Nasdaq Stock Market, despite the Company not being subject to these standards at this time. Our Board considers a director to be independent when the director is not an officer or employee of the Company or its subsidiaries, does not have any relationship which would, or could reasonably appear to, materially interfere with the independent judgment of such director, and the director otherwise meets the independence requirements under the listing standards of the Nasdaq Stock Market and the rules and regulations of the SEC. Based on the foregoing, the Board has determined that none of our directors currently meet the independence standards established by the Nasdaq Stock Market and the applicable independence rules and regulations of the SEC.
