PART I

 

Item 1. Business

 

Corporate History

 

Next Meats Holdings, Inc., formerly known as Turnkey Solutions, Inc., was incorporated on April 15, 2020 in the State of Nevada.

 

On April 15, 2020, Paul Moody was appointed Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and Director of the Company, at the time known as “Turnkey Solutions, Inc.”

 

On October 1, 2020, the Company, at the time known as “Turnkey Solutions, Inc.” (the “Company” or “Successor”) announced on Form 8-K plans to participate in a holding company reorganization (“the Reorganization” or “Merger”) with Intermedia Marketing Solutions, Inc. (“IMMM” or “Predecessor”) and Intermedia Marketing Solutions Merger Sub, Inc. (“Merger Sub”) collectively (the “Constituent Corporations”) pursuant to NRS 92A.180, NRS A.200, NRS 92A.230 and NRS 92A.250. Immediately prior to the Reorganization, the Company was a direct and wholly owned subsidiary of Intermedia Marketing Solutions, Inc. and Intermedia Marketing Solutions Merger Sub, Inc. was a direct and wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

 

The effective date and time of the Reorganization was October 28, 2020 at 4PM PST (the “Effective Time”). The entire plan of Merger is on file with Nevada Secretary of State (“NSOS”) and included in the Articles of Merger pursuant to NRS 92A.200 Nevada Secretary of State (“NSOS”) and attached to and made a part thereof to the Articles of Merger pursuant to NRS 92A.200 filed with NSOS on October 16, 2020. At the Effective Time, Predecessor merged with and into its indirect and wholly owned subsidiary, Merger Sub with Predecessor as the surviving corporation resulting in Predecessor as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

 

Concurrently and after the Effective Time, the Company cancelled all of its stock held in Predecessor resulting in the Company as a stand-alone and separate entity with no subsidiaries, no assets and negligible liabilities. The assets and liabilities of Predecessor, if any, remained with Predecessor. The Company abandoned the business plan of its Predecessor and resumed its former business plan of a blank check company after completion of the Merger.

 

Full details pertaining to the Reorganization can be viewed in the Company’s Form 8-K filed on October 29, 2020.

 

On November 18, 2020 our now former controlling shareholder, Flint Consulting Services, LLC sold 35,000,000 shares of common stock to Next Meats Co., Ltd., a Japan Company. Next Meats Co., Ltd. is a Japanese Company that operates in the “alternative meat” industry. It currently offers, and plans to continue to offer, amongst other things, artificial chicken and beef products made from meat substitutes. As will be described later on, Next Meats Co., Ltd. is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

 

On November 18, 2020, Paul Moody resigned from his position of Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, President, Secretary, Treasurer and Director.

 

Simultaneous to Paul Moody’s resignations, Ryo Shirai was appointed as our Chief Executive Officer and Director, Hideyuki Sasaki as our Chief Operating Officer and Director, and Koichi Ishizuka as our Chief Financial Officer.

 

On January 8, 2021 our now former majority shareholder, Next Meats Co., Ltd., a Japan Company, along with our Board of Directors, took action to ratify, affirm, and approve a name change of the Company from Turnkey Solutions, Inc., to Next Meats Holdings, Inc. The Company filed a Certificate of Amendment with the Nevada Secretary of State (“NVSOS”) to enact the name change with an effective date of January 19, 2021. This was previously disclosed in the Form 8-K we filed on January 25, 2021.

 

Also on January 8, 2021, our now former majority shareholder Next Meats Co., Ltd., along with our Board of Directors took action to ratify, affirm, and approve a change of the Company’s ticker symbol from TKSI to NXMH.

 

Pursuant to the above, the Company carried out a FINRA corporate action. As a result of the aforementioned actions the Company’s CUSIP number was changed from 90043H102 to 65345L 100. The change in CUSIP, name change, and symbol change were posted on the FINRA daily list on January 25, 2021 with a market effective date of January 26, 2021.

 

On January 28, 2021, Next Meats Co., Ltd., along with our Board of Directors, took action to ratify, affirm, and approve the issuance of 452,352,298 shares of restricted common stock to Next Meats Co., Ltd. The shares were issued for services rendered to the Company.  

On June 9, 2021 the Company entered into a “Share Cancellation and Exchange Agreement” (referred to herein as “the Agreement”) with Next Meats Co., Ltd., a Japan Company. Pursuant to the Share Cancellation and Exchange Agreement, effective on December 16, 2021, Next Meats Holdings, Inc. acquired Next Meats Co., Ltd. as a wholly owned subsidiary. Commensurate with this action, there was a conversion of the Next Meats Holdings, Inc. percentile share interest in exchange for the Company’s 100% share interest in Next Meats Co., Ltd. Immediately prior to the effective time, each (now former) shareholder of Next Meats Co., Ltd. cancelled and exchanged their percentile share interest in Next Meats Co., Ltd. for an equivalent percentile share interest in Next Meats Holdings, Inc. at a pro rata percentage. As a result of the Share Cancellation and Exchange Agreement, we now own 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Next Meats Co., Ltd., which constitutes 1,000 shares of common stock.

We believe that the aforementioned transaction(s) relating to the Share Cancellation and Exchange Agreement described above constituted a tax-free organization pursuant to Section 368(a)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code. Full details of the Share Cancellation and Exchange Agreement are contained within our Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 16, 2021.

Following the acquisition of Next Meats Co., Ltd. on December 16, 2021, we ceased to be a shell company. Currently, and going forward, we intend to act as a holding company for our subsidiaries which develop and sell alternative meat products, created from various meat substitutes.

On December 28, 2021, Ryo Shirai resigned as our Chief Executive Officer and was appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors.

 

The resignation of Mr. Ryo Shirai, as Chief Executive Officer, was not the result of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to its operations, policies, or practices.  

 

On December 28, 2021, Mr. Koichi Ishizuka was appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

 

On December 28, 2021 we filed an amendment to our Articles of Incorporation with the Nevada Secretary of State, resulting in an increase to our authorized shares of Common Stock from 500,000,000 to 1,000,000,000.

Non-Reliance On Previously Issued Financial Statements Or A Related Audit Report Or Completed Interim Review

 

On January 28, 2021, our majority shareholder at the time, Next Meats Co., Ltd., (“the Company”) along with our Board of Directors, took action to ratify, affirm, and approve the issuance of 452,352,298 shares of the Company's restricted common stock to Next Meats Co., Ltd. The shares were originally accounted for based on the fair market value closing price per share of common stock based on the open market at the time.  However, the Company has determined that the subject valuation analysis was not credible resulting in the subject value conclusion to not be meaningful given the issuance should have been accounted for as a common control transaction. As such, it is the Company’s belief that the open market value of its common shares did not, at that time, reflect the true value of the shares. 

 

The share valuation has been adjusted and is, in the Company’s belief, now corrected and accounted for as a common control transaction, with our now wholly owned subsidiary, at a valuation of $0. The $452,352 increase in the resulting par value of common shares on the Company's balance sheet has been offset by a corresponding decrease in additional paid in capital in the equity portion of the Company's balance sheet.

 

The Company currently estimates that the adjustments will have the effect of decreasing the net loss by approximately $5.8 billion as a result of a non-cash expense, and decreasing additional paid-in capital by the same amount, starting at the three months ended January 31, 2021. The adjustments are expected to impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements for subsequent reporting periods through year-end April 30, 2023. The adjustments are not expected to impact on the Company’s liquidity or capital resources or compliance with any material agreements.

 

Given the above issuance has now been reclassified as a common control transaction, the Company intends to file amendments to the following reports to rectify the historical error regarding the aforementioned valuation of shares: the Form 10-Q for the period ended January 31, 2021, the Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2021, the Form 10-Q for the period ended July 31, 2021, the Form 10-Q for the period ended October 31, 2021, the Form 10-Q for the period ended January 31, 2022, the Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2022, the Form 10-Q for the period ended July 31, 2022, the Form 10-Q for the period ended October 31, 2022, and the Form 10-Q for the period ended January 31, 2023.

Business Information

 

We share the same business plan as that of our subsidiaries and we also act as a holding company for our subsidiaries. Through Next Meats Co., Ltd., Next Meats USA, Inc., Next Meats HK Co. Limited, and Next Meats (S) Pte. Ltd., we develop and sell alternative meat products, with ingredients derived from predominantly, plant based materials. For the purposes of the foregoing business plan, all references to “Next Meats”, Next Meats Co., Ltd.”,“Next Meats USA”, “Next Meats HK”, “Next Meats (S) Pte. Ltd.”, or “the Company”, refer collectively to Next Meats Holdings, Inc., and its subsidiaries, unless otherwise noted.

 

Our mission, or philosophy, is that “We Won’t Let Earth End”. Next Meats works to provide a solution to the climate crisis and food insecurity problems by distributing, what we believe to be, delicious alternative-meat products rooted in Japanese cuisine, worldwide. Next Meats is a food-tech venture founded in Tokyo, by people passionate about delivering a better future for our children. We strive to create tasty alternatives to your favorite dishes, without the same environmental impact of using meat. We believe in a more ecologically sustainable future for every person.

 

At present, our principal focus is on the creation of plant-based food products to replace traditional animal products, while retaining the taste and texture of the original.

 

At Next Meats, safety and quality are our top priorities. Many people imagine chemical additives when they hear the word “alternative meat”, but it is our intent to only use the minimum, necessary ingredients, and keep additives at a minimum or as a last option. We combine vegetable proteins such as soybeans and peas and mold them with heat and pressure to create a unique texture and flavor. We produce our products only in certified food factories. To ensure that our products are safe, we produce them in clean food factories certified by the Japan Food Safety Management Association (JFS), HALAL, etc., for thorough quality control. We are also exporting more and more of our products overseas as time progresses, and we believe part of the reason is that our products are highly valued for their quality and “Made in Japan” taste.

 

Below, pictured on the right, is the active production of one of several of our product offerings, NEXT Yakiniku, a meat alternative to skirt steak. Pictured on the left is our NEXT Yakiniku once cooked and prepared for consumption.

 

 

While we maintain rigorous safety and cleanliness standards for the factories that produce Next Meats products, it should be noted that we do not, at this time, directly manufacture any of our products. As a result of one of our collaborative agreements, the majority of our products are manufactured utilizing the facilities of Mama Foods Co., Ltd., while in other instances we use, and may continue to utilize, facilities of third party strategic partners to manufacture certain products (for example, the Next Patty is manufactured by one of these third parties). In the future, we may seek to manufacture our products internally, but at this time we have no plans to do so. We intend to maintain ongoing relationships and agreements with local manufacturers for as long as they remain certified by JFS, HALAL, etc. and meet our rigorous safety and cleanliness standards. From time to time we send out staff members into the facilities that manufacturer our products for ongoing inspections and observation.

Currently Available Products

 

The following list of products is not comprehensive, but it is a showcase of some of our most popular items:

 

  1. NEXT Burger 2.1- The NEXT Burger is a meat (plant-based) patty made by combining the proteins of peas and soybeans. In comparison to regular burgers, we believe the NEXT Burger to be very gentle on the body while retaining the taste of a traditional burger patty.

 

  2. NEXT Gyudon- Gyudon, also known as a beef bowl, is a Japanese dish traditionally consisting of a bowl of rice topped with beef and onion simmered in a mildly sweet sauce flavored with dashi, soy sauce and mirin. The NEXT Gyudon is made from processed soybeans and natural seasonings, without using any animal ingredients and without adding chemical seasonings. The cholesterol in this product is almost zero and we believe it to be a far healthier option than a typical gyudon, while retaining all the flavor.

 

  3. NEXT Yakiniku- The world's first plant-based Yakiniku barbecue meats have two types, the Short-rib, and the Skirt-steak. Both are:

 

- Free of artificial additives

- High in protein

- No Cholesterol

- Uses Non-GMO soy

- Low in saturated fat

 

The textures slightly vary but they both have a non-intrusive, lightly sweet and savory flavor which makes it extremely versatile. The NEXT Yakinikus are excellent grilled and "topped on rice" or in a stir fry, or in tacos, and in an endless possibility of dishes.

 

  4. NEXT Tuna- The NEXT Tuna is 100% botanical and low in fat cholesterol. It is available in a can and there is no need to drain oil or water. We believe it is ideal for hand-rolled sushi and pasta, as well as being placed on a salad or sandwiched with mayonnaise. In addition, since it can be stored at room temperature for a long period of time (2 years after manufacture date), it can be used as an emergency food, given its long shelf life.

  

A list of the majority of our currently available products can be viewed at: https://www.nextmeats.global/product

 

The vegetable protein for the Next Yakiniku is formed in a twin-screw extruder, then dried, boiled, fried, and seasoned. Finally, it is heat sterilized and frozen. The Next Burger and Next Gyudon also use processed soy that comes out the extruder but they are cooked differently afterwards.

 

The main ingredient for our products is predominantly soybeans. Different varieties of soybeans and production areas are used for different products to give them varying textures and colors. The products are all sold frozen with the exception of the canned Next Gyudon, and they are all classified as “processed soy products”. In some stores, depending on the results of the bacteria count test, the product can be sold in the chilled zone in the fridge (5℃).

 

Other than the main ingredient, soybeans, the other part of the product is the seasoning, such as yakiniku sauce, beef bowl sauce, and herb seasoning.

 

The below is included to provide a visual of some our current product offerings detailed above.

 

 

Trademarks

 

We have obtained trademarks within Japan for the names of our existing products. Any proposed or future products are also trademarked, or will likely be trademarked, within Japan or are pending receipt of such trademark rights within Japan. In Taiwan we have also trademarked our ‘NEXT Yakiniku’ product. Additionally, our name, ‘Next Meats’ is trademarked in the United States, Japan, China, and Taiwan.

 

Future Products

 

Development of new products is ongoing, and in some instances may not be to the point where we can publicly announce our plans. However, we can state that as of the date of this report we are in active development of Next Beef and Next Rice, although we cannot state with any level of specificity when development of these future products will conclude. We continually strive to create and sell new products, and we anticipate our product line will continue to expand and diversify in fiscal year 2024 and the years to follow as our business expands and grows.

 

Distribution

 

At present, we distribute our products through several wholesale companies, while also selling directly through our website. The USA version of our website can be viewed at the following link: https://www.nextmeatsusa.com/. We have accounts with Kokubu and NIPPON ACCESS, two of the largest food wholesalers in Japan, and they distribute our products to restaurants and supermarkets throughout the country.

Table of Contents

We have been, or will be, distributing our products in various countries through the efforts of our subsidiaries. Namely, Next Meats USA, Inc., Next Meats HK Co. Limited, and Next Meats (S) Pte. Ltd. will continue to spearhead distribution of our products in the United States, China, and Singapore respectively. These strategically incorporated subsidiaries will also allow us to create regional hubs in these countries, through which, in the future, we may launch further expansion efforts into surrounding countries.

 

As a result of our wholesale and distribution channels mentioned above, Next Meats products are widely distributed in supermarkets and restaurant chains as an alternative meat brand. Notably, several of our food products can be found in Wayback Burgers’ Japanese Restaurant locations. These Wayback Burgers locations are owned and controlled by WB Burgers Asia, Inc. Koichi Ishizuka is the sole officer, director, and controlling shareholder of WB Burgers Asia, Inc.

 

Below are some of the various supermarkets and restaurants (this is not a full list) that our products can be found in.

 

 

Pictured below is one of our scientists on staff developing and producing one of our various alternative meats products using the TVP method described above.

 

 

Marketing Strategy

 

At present, our marketing plan is comprised of daily posts and releases through various social networking platforms, SNS messaging, and we have also appeared at events throughout Japan, distributed press releases, and attempted to have our company featured on various news media. Whenever we release a new product, we also release an official press release and/or we hold a press conference in Japan. We have also created a television commercial, which can be viewed on our website. The commercial was originally created in Japanese, and has only aired on television in Japan thus far, but has also been translated into English and Chinese. It was, and is, our belief that creating and running a television commercial would help to differentiate us from many other startups who do not reach out to the general public through this medium. We have also held various tasting events to allow potential customers to sample our various products and spread awareness of our brand name. As our operations progress, our marketing initiatives will remain ongoing and we will continually seek to identify and explore new methods of increasing consumers’ awareness of our products.

 

Collaborative Efforts

 

On December 11, 2020, Next Meats Co., Ltd. entered into a Joint Development Agreement with Euglena Co., Ltd. with the intent to jointly develop artificial meat products containing Euglena. To date, this has resulted in the creation of “Next Yakiniku Euglena EX” which integrates the microalgae euglena into our Next Yakiniku product. We are currently working on developing a burger patty alongside Euglena Co., Ltd.

 

On December 28, 2020, Next Meats Co., Ltd. entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Toyota Tsusho Corporation to agree to consider this partnership with the aim of taking measures to make a new food culture permeate society and contribute to the achievement of SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), by making use of each companies’ strengths in forming an ecosystem that expands the Japanese and overseas plant meat market and reinforces its value chain. Thus far, this has resulted in introductions to new retailers, assistance with our exporting plans to China (including introductions to factories in China), as well as the development of the “Menchikatsu” cutlet product which was released recently.

 

On May 5, 2021, Next Meats Co., Ltd. entered into a Joint Research Agreement with Nagaoka University of Technology. The research pertains to regulatory mechanisms of iron-binding protein gene expression in leguminosae plants. Leguminosae plants possess a gene that encodes iron-binding protein, but this gene is not expressed in the seeds, so plant-based meat made using seeds from leguminosae plants, like soybean, lack iron-binding proteins when compared to animal meats. One solution to this problem is the production of cultivars wherein iron-binding protein genes are expressed within the seeds; the elucidation and usage of epigenetic control mechanisms will be effective in modifying gene expression. Therefore, we will conduct fundamental research on the development of plant variant that can produce seeds that contain high levels of iron-binding protein through the usage of the plant epigenetics technology at the Nagaoka University of Technology.

 

On October 11, 2021, we, through our now wholly owned subsidiary Next Meats Co., Ltd., entered into and consummated a “Collaboration Agreement” with Dr. Foods Co., Ltd., a Japan company and wholly owned subsidiary of Dr. Foods, Inc., a Nevada Company, that shares common management with the Company, to co-develop new food products and subsequently offer them for sale. Dr. Foods Co., Ltd. operates in the “plant-based food” industry. It currently offers, and plans to continue to offer, amongst other things, artificial foie gras made from meat substitutes, and intends to offer, in the future, a diverse range of microalgae-based foods. 

 

The Collaboration Agreement with Dr. Foods, Inc. is for a period of two years, and may be renewed thereafter under the same terms for additional one-year terms unless terminated in writing, with three months’ notice, by either party. The Collaboration Agreement, amongst other things, details the terms and conditions by which Next Meats Co., Ltd. and Dr. Foods Co., Ltd. may co-develop, cooperate and contribute towards the development of new products and technologies. The specific allotment of tasks per project will be determined in writing by each party at the outset of collaborative efforts. Dr. Foods Co., Ltd. will primarily, although not exclusively, contribute to research and development, and Next Meats Co., Ltd. will primarily, although not exclusively, contribute to distribution of new products/technologies. Costs pursuant to the collaborative efforts of the partners, will be the respective responsibility of the party responsible for fulfilling such tasks.

On March 17, 2022, Next Meats Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of Next Meats Holdings, Inc. has agreed to conclude a business alliance agreement with Yakuodo Co., a subsidiary of Yakuodo Holdings, Inc. and as a part of this alliance, Yakuodo has agreed to purchase certain shares of Next Meats Holdings, Inc., to strengthen the relationship between the two companies. Moving forward, the two companies will consider the following possibilities for collaboration with a particular focus on utilization of data owned by Yakuodo, product development utilizing Yakuodo’s employee assets, and improvement of logistics efficiency. All such future plans have not been outlined with any further specificity at this time.

 

At this time, the majority of Next Meats’ products are manufactured at facilities owned by Mama Foods Co., Ltd. (“Mama Foods”), a Japan Company. Mama Foods is owned and controlled, at this time, by White Knight Co., Ltd., which in turn is owned and controlled by our Chief Executive Officer, Koichi Ishizuka.

 

On April 10, 2023, Next Meats Co., Ltd. and Van Gelder, a Netherlands Company, signed an exclusive distribution contract which enables them to start importing Next Meats products from Japan, and selling in European markets starting from April 2023, with Bidfood and Van der Valk Hotel as the first customers. The primary product of relevance to this agreement is the “Next Short Rib 2.0" also called “Next Kalbi”.

 

Future Plans

 

We anticipate that continued development of new products will be an ongoing process. Simultaneously, we are focused on expanding our sales distribution channels, and issuing pertinent press releases while conducting media interviews. We are in the process of developing our subsidiaries which includes, in some cases, the preparation of specialized domestic products (which we are not yet ready to announce). Increasing production, and local distribution via our subsidiaries, will be a developing process going into the future, and we cannot forecast with any level of specificity, at this time, when such plans will be realized.

 

During fiscal year 2024, we intend to begin the process of listing on the NASDAQ if our financial situation is conducive to such an effort. Further, we intend to increase our mass media exposure and have tentative plans to begin placing OOH (Out of Home) advertisements in strategic locations throughout Japan. In fiscal year 2024 and beyond we tentatively intend to increase our overseas media and event exposure, with a particular focus on offering Next Kalbi 2.0 in the United States and the Netherlands.

 

Government Regulations

 

The below does not extensively detail every law and regulation to which the Company may be subject to, but rather provides an overview of the kind of food safety standards to which our product(s) will be held.

 

The main law that governs food quality and integrity in Japan is the Food Sanitation Act ("FSA") and the law that comprehensively governs food labeling regulation is the Food Labeling Act.

 

The FSA regulates food quality and integrity by:

 

- Establishing standards and specifications for food, additives, apparatus, and food containers and packaging;

- Providing for inspection to see whether the established standards are met;

- Providing for hygiene management in the manufacture and sale of food; and

- Requiring food businesses to be licensed.

 

Under the FSA, additives and foods containing additives must not be sold, or be produced, imported, processed, used, stored, or displayed for marketing purposes unless the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare ("MHLW") has declared them as having no risk to human health after seeking the views of the Pharmaceutical Affairs and Food Sanitation Council ("PAFSC"). In addition, it is not permissible to add any processing aids, vitamins, minerals, novel foods or nutritive substances to food unless they have been expressly declared by the MHLW as having no risk to human health.

 

The MHLW may establish specifications for methods of producing, processing, using, cooking, or preserving food or additives to be served to the public for marketing purposes ("Specifications"), or may establish standards for food ingredients or additives to be served to the public for marketing purposes ("Standards") pursuant to the FSA. Accordingly, where substances are allowed to be added to food, they may only be used within the limits expressly set by the Specifications and Standards.

 

Our Facilities

 

At present, Next Meats Co., Ltd. rents a Tokyo office from an unrelated third party at a price of 426,662 JPY per month.

 

In May of 2023, we closed our Niigata research lab.

 

As a result, we moved our research and development, which was previously conducted at the Niigata research lab, to a new facility in Iwate, Japan. This location is not rented, owned, or leased by Next Meats Holdings, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries. It should be noted that the research lab in Iwate is being provided rent free to the company by Mama Foods Co., Ltd., which is owned and controlled by Koichi Ishizuka, our Chief Executive Officer, through White Knight Co., Ltd., which is also controlled by Mr. Ishizuka.

 

We had previously developed plans to construct our own NEXT factory dedicated to alternative protein/product development. It was to include sustainable technologies and DX Systems (HVAC air conditioning unit). However, we have determined to put such plans on indefinite hiatus given management’s belief that such an endeavor would result in a large capital expenditure. Management believes it can fulfill its current and anticipated future levels of production with current manufacturers.

 

Employees

 

At present, Next Meats Holdings, Inc. has two employees, solely comprised of our officers and Directors. Next Meats Co., Ltd. has seven employees, five of which are full time employees and two are part time employees. Non executive employees of Next Meats Co., Ltd. who are full time employees receive, in addition to their salaries, social insurance in Japan. Social insurance is comprised of Pension, Health, Unemployment and Worker's Accident Compensation.  The remainder of our subsidiaries do not have employees, with the exception of their officers and directors, and such executive members do not receive any benefits at this time.

 

Competition

 

The alternative meat industry is highly competitive, with a major market share held by prominent companies, such as Beyond Meat, a Los Angeles-based producer of plant-based meat substitutes. In 2019, Beyond Meat, which manufactures the plant-based Beyond Burger, went public at a valuation of almost $1.5B. Beyond Meat began offering direct-to-consumer (D2C) sales in August 2020 and announced partnerships with Yum! Brands and McDonald’s in 2021.

 

In Japan, there are also several prominent alternative-meat companies which we consider to be our direct competitors including, but not necessarily limited to, Marukome Co., Ltd., Maisen Fine Foods Co., and Kabaya Foods Corporation. Marukome Co., Ltd, one of Japan’s oldest and top miso paste producers, launched their Daizu Labo (Soybean Laboratories) brand, which features over 30 soy-based substitutes for animal products, eight advertised as ‘meat’ (ready to eat, dried, and frozen). Maisen Fine Foods Co., gradually expanded its business from organic brown rice to rice-based and allergy-friendly food products. In 2016, they launched a series of gluten-free soybean and rice-based meat products. Kabaya Foods Corporation, a confectionery company founded in 1946, launched a soy-based jerky in 2018 with the slogan “a new era of snack is coming.”

 

Despite these, and other, competitors, we believe that we have significant competitive strengths which poise Next Meats to become a prominent market participant in the alternative food industry going forward.

Item 2. Properties.

 

We rent office space in Tokyo, Japan from an unrelated third party. Our Tokyo offices are rented at a rate of 426,662 JPY per month (approximately $3,118).

 

Previously, we conducted research and development out of a lab in Nagaoka, Niigata Prefecture, Japan. We no longer rent this space or conduct operations at this facility. We now conduct research and development at a location provided to us rent free by Mama Foods Co., Ltd., a Japanese Company. Our new location for research and development is in Hanamaki City, Iwate Prefecture, Japan.

 

Mama Foods Co., Ltd. is owned and controlled by White Knight Co., Ltd. White Knight Co., Ltd. is controlled by our Chief Executive Officer, Koichi Ishizuka.

 

Our subsidiaries may also rent office space on a need be basis to hold inventory, and perform daily operative tasks.

 

Item 3. Legal Proceedings.

 

In May, 2023, a shareholder of Next Meats Holdings, Inc. (“the Company”) brought an action against Koichi Ishizuka and White Knight Co., Ltd., in the Southern District of New York for recovery of alleged short swing profits earned under Section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Koichi Ishizuka and White Knight Co., Ltd. are vigorously defending this matter. Although recovery was sought only from Koichi Ishizuka and White Knight Co., Ltd., the Company was also named as a nominal defendant. The plaintiff seeks no relief against the Company. Next Meats Holdings, Inc. has no direct exposure in connection with the lawsuit and this action should not be considered material to the Company.

As of April 30, 2023 and 2022, we had cash and cash equivalents in the amount of $292,454 and $620,297, respectively. The Company believes that the variance between periods is the result of decreased revenue during the fiscal year ended April 30, 2023, which resulted in decreased gross profit, and therefore a decreased amount of cash and cash equivalents.

 

Currently, our cash balance is not sufficient to fund our operations and our revenues cannot cover our cost and expenses for any extended period of time. We have primarily relied upon fundraising activities from the sale of our common stock in order to fund our business activities, and we intend to continue to relay upon sales of stock to fund operations in the future.

 

We also intend to use future revenues to fund our operating activities. However, if our revenue does not increase as we expect, then we may be forced to conduct future fundraising activities, which may include, but are not limited to, the sale of our common stock, or capital contribution from our officers and directors.

 

If we need additional cash and cannot raise it, we will have to adjust our operating strategy accordingly.

 

As of April 30, 2023, and 2022, we had total assets of $1,224,683 and $5,728,600, respectively. We attribute the decrease in total assets primarily to a decrease in accounts receivable, a decrease in advance payments and prepaid expenses, a decrease in land and improvements, and a decrease in inventory. Overall, our activities and gross profit have decreased during the fiscal year ended April 30, 2023, compared to the year prior.

 

As of April 30, 2023, and 2022, we had total liabilities of $1,178,219 and $853,814, respectively. We attribute the increase in total liabilities, to larger loans and advance receipts during the fiscal year ended April 30, 2023, when compared to the year prior.

Revenues

 

For the fiscal years ended April 30, 2023 and 2022, we generated revenue in the amount of $1,398,133 and $6,950,236, respectively. For the fiscal years ended April 30, 2023 and 2022, our cost of revenues were $1,326,938 and $5,707,788, respectively. For the fiscal years ended April 30, 2023 and 2022, our gross profit was $71,195 and $1,242,448, respectively. The decrease in gross profit came about as a result of decreased operations and profitability during the fiscal year ended April 30, 2023.

 

We believe the products we offer, and continue to offer, to be a ‘premium’ alternative to traditional food options, which typically coincides with increased costs. Given the condition of the global economy, we believe there is likely less demand for premium alternatives to traditional food products, such as those we currently offer. As described in more detail under "Going Concern", we also no longer offer various products which bolstered our balance sheet for the year prior.

 

In order to remediate our decreased revenue, profitability, and activity for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2023, we seek to reach a broader global audience for our products, which we believe may result in increased customers and therefore revenue. There is no guarantee that we will be successful in this endeavor. We also seek to continue to develop new products, in an effort to appeal to a wider array of customers. 

 

Net Loss

 

We recorded a net income/loss of $(4,873,010) and $(5,795,980) for the years ended April 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The decreased net loss for the year ended April 30, 2023, was the result of a decrease in total operating expenses compared to the year prior.

 

Cash flows

 

For the years ended April 30, 2023 and 2022, we had cash flows from operating activities in the amount of $(1,659,270) and $(8,452,904), respectively. The variance in cash flows is primarily attributable to decreased operations for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2023.

 

For the years ended April 30, 2023 and 2022, we had cash flows from investing activities in the amount of $1,212,042 and $(1,092,511), respectively. The variance in cash flows is attributable to the disposal of land and improvements for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2023.

 

For the years ended April 30, 2023 and 2022, we had net cash provided by financing activities in the amount of $447,202 and $4,084,478, respectively. The variance in cash flows is attributable to a much larger number of shares sold during the fiscal year ended April 30, 2022, as compared to the fiscal year ended April 30, 2023.

 

Going Concern

 

The Company demonstrates adverse conditions that raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern for one year following the issuance of these financial statements. These adverse conditions are negative financial trends, specifically operating loss, working capital deficiency, and other adverse key financial ratios.

 

The Company has not recorded enough revenue to cover its operating costs and gross revenue for the year ended April 30, 2023 decreased by $5,551,102 or 79.87% as compared to the year ended April 30, 2023. Management attributes this drop in revenue to global economic challenges, a restructuring of the Company’s large-scale sales department, changes in product offerings, and discontinued operations in two subsidiaries.

 

We believe the products we offer, and continue to offer, to be a ‘premium’ alternative to traditional food options, which typically coincides with increased costs. Given the condition of the global economy, we believe there is likely less demand for premium alternatives to traditional food products, such as those we currently offer. Over the course of the last year, we believe we have been affected by decreased demand for our products, our decision to no longer wholesale rice, and the decreased price at which we have offered our products, resulting in less revenue for the year ended April 30, 2023.

 

Previously, we also had a wider selection of food options and other facets of our business which we believe drove revenues. Specifically, from time to time we would engage in the wholesale sale of rice, however we no longer engage in the wholesale sale of rice because our previous sole supplier is no longer in business. We believe that due to the current downtrend in the global economy, such efforts should not recommence, if at all, until the global economy recovers to pre-pandemic levels.

 

At this time, we also no longer offer “Next Milk” which we believed would gain popularity in the near term. Various components of the products we offered, or seek to continue to offer, are either not available, or available at price points that are not as attractive. As a result, at this time, it is difficult for us to produce cost effective products that we believe would rival the cost of generic food products, and thus bolster our revenues. We believe many consumers are purchasing more cost-effective options. Because of this, we are exploring means to lessen the cost of our product lineup while maintaining what we believe to be the same quality products, but we cannot forecast with any level of certainty if such efforts will be successful. Many of these endeavors rely on our ability to source ingredients at a lower cost, which, at this time, is a challenge.

 

In December of 2022, we dissolved NextMeats France, a French Entity. We do not believe there to be a great enough demand for our products in France and surrounding areas, although we do still intend to offer our products in areas of Europe in the futureWe have also paused efforts to pursue selling products in Hong Kong under our wholly owned subsidiary, Next Meats HK Co. Limited (“Next Meats HK”), a Hong Kong Company. We do not believe the current market would be conducive to our business objectives in this area at this point in time. However, we will reassess this decision in the future, although we cannot specifically identity when that may be. Next Meats HK Co. Limited remains a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. 

 

We expect our other wholly owned subsidiaries, Next Meats USA and Next Meats Japan Co. Ltd, to improve their operating income in the next fiscal year. However, management plans to fund some operating expenses with related party contributions to capital until there is sufficient revenue to cover all operating expenses. There is no assurance that management's plan will be successful. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event that the Company cannot continue as a going concern.

 

Non-Reliance On Previously Issued Financial Statements Or A Related Audit Report Or Completed Interim Review

 

On January 28, 2021, our majority shareholder at the time, Next Meats Co., Ltd., (“the Company”) along with our Board of Directors, took action to ratify, affirm, and approve the issuance of 452,352,298 shares of the Company's restricted common stock to Next Meats Co., Ltd. The shares were originally accounted for based on the fair market value closing price per share of common stock based on the open market at the time.  However, the Company has determined that the subject valuation analysis was not credible resulting in the subject value conclusion to not be meaningful given the issuance should have been accounted for as a common control transaction. As such, it is the Company’s belief that the open market value of its common shares did not, at that time, reflect the true value of the shares. 

 

The share valuation has been adjusted and is, in the Company’s belief, now corrected and accounted for as a common control transaction, with our now wholly owned subsidiary, at a valuation of $0. The $452,352 increase in the resulting par value of common shares on the Company's balance sheet has been offset by a corresponding decrease in additional paid in capital in the equity portion of the Company's balance sheet.

 

The Company currently estimates that the adjustments will have the effect of decreasing the net loss by approximately $5.8 billion as a result of a non-cash expense, and decreasing additional paid-in capital by the same amount, starting at the three months ended January 31, 2021. The adjustments are expected to impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements for subsequent reporting periods through year-end April 30, 2023. The adjustments are not expected to impact on the Company’s liquidity or capital resources or compliance with any material agreements.

 

Given the above issuance has now been reclassified as a common control transaction, the Company intends to file amendments to the following reports to rectify the historical error regarding the aforementioned valuation of shares: the Form 10-Q for the period ended January 31, 2021, the Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2021, the Form 10-Q for the period ended July 31, 2021, the Form 10-Q for the period ended October 31, 2021, the Form 10-Q for the period ended January 31, 2022, the Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2022, the Form 10-Q for the period ended July 31, 2022, the Form 10-Q for the period ended October 31, 2022, and the Form 10-Q for the period ended January 31, 2023.

 

This Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2023, includes the above share issuance adjusted and reclassified as described above.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

To the shareholders and the board of directors of Next Meats Holdings, Inc.

Opinion on the Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Next Meats Holdings, Inc. as of April 30, 2023 and 2022, the related statements of operations, stockholders' equity (deficit), and cash flows for the years 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 April 30, 2023 and 2022, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

Substantial Doubt about the Company’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 3 to the financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a significant accumulated deficit. In addition, the Company continues to experience negative cash flows from operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 3. 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 audit. 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 audit 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 audit 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 audit 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 audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

NOTES TO THE AUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 1 - Organization and Description of Business

 

Next Meats Holdings, Inc. (we, us, our, or the "Company"), formerly known as Turnkey Solutions, Inc., was incorporated on April 15, 2020 in the State of Nevada.

 

On January 28, 2021, our majority shareholder, Next Meats Co., Ltd., along with our Board of Directors took action to ratify, affirm, and approve the issuance of 452,352,298 shares of restricted common stock to Next Meats Co., Ltd. The shares were issued as a common control transaction. Following this issuance we had 500,000,000 shares of common stock issued and outstanding. On June 9, 2021 the Company entered into a “Share Cancellation and Exchange Agreement” (referred to herein as “the Agreement”) with Next Meats Co., Ltd.

 

Next Meats Co., Ltd. is a Japanese Company that operates in the “alternative meat” industry. It currently offers, and plans to continue to offer, amongst other things, artificial chicken and beef products made from meat substitutes. The product offerings from Next Meats Co., Ltd. are currently sold to various food distributors, supermarkets, and restaurant groups.     All 31 COSTCO stores are selling Next Kalbi 2.1 from March 2023. Next Meats Co., Ltd. sells Next Skirt steak to ORIENTAL LAND Co., Ltd. and Next Skirt steak is used in a restaurant in Tokyo Disney land. Next Meats Co., Ltd. has successfully developed the room temperature type Next Kalbi 2.0 and signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Van Gelder, a leading Dutch food company, in April 2023. Next Meats Co., Ltd. has begun marketing its room-temperature Next Kalbi 2.0 in the United States. The product is scheduled to go on sale in the U.S. through an e-commerce site in October 2023. Next Meats Co., Ltd. is referred to herein as “NMCO”, and Next Meats Holdings, Inc., is referred to herein as “the Company”, and or “NXMH.” The current shareholders of Next Meats Co., Ltd. are referred to herein as “NMCO shareholders”.

 

Pursuant to the agreement, at the effective time of the agreement, NXMH acquired NMCO as a wholly owned subsidiary and commensurate with this action, there was a conversion of the NXMH Percentile Share Interest in exchange for the Company’s 100% percentile share interest in NMCO. Immediately prior to the Effective Time, (defined below) each NMCO shareholder canceled and exchanged their percentile share interest in NMCO for an equivalent percentile share interest in NXMH pursuant to each NMCO shareholder’s pro rata percentage.

 

On or about September 17, 2021, we incorporated NextMeats France, a French entity, which acted as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. We intended to utilize NextMeats France to, amongst other things, operate as a reseller and distributor, in France and throughout Europe, of food products currently offered by Next Meats Co., Ltd. However, in December of 2022, we discontinued operations in France and dissolved the NextMeats France entity. We do not believe there to be a great enough demand for our products in France and surrounding areas, although we do still intend to offer our products in areas of Europe in the future, while working with a European partner company. As of April 30, 2023, the Company has not yet formed an agreement with another entity in order to pursue sales of our products in Europe.

 

In January of 2022, we engaged counsel to incorporate Next Meats USA, Inc. on our behalf. Next Meats USA, Inc. (“NXMH USA”) was incorporated on January 18, 2022 and is a California Corporation.

 

On February 7, 2022, the incorporator of Next Meats USA, Inc. was discharged of any further duties. Simultaneously, Koichi Ishizuka and Koki Terui were appointed as Directors, and Koki Terui was appointed President, Chief Executive Officer, Secretary, Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer.

 

On February 7, 2022, NXMH USA issued 100 shares of its common stock to Next Meats Holdings, Inc., a Nevada Corporation, in exchange for $10,000. As a result of this action, Next Meats Holdings, Inc. became the sole shareholder of NXMH USA. NXMH USA is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Next Meats Holdings, Inc.

 

Next Meats Holdings, Inc., intends to utilize NXMH USA as a means to expand its business operations into the United States. Currently, the Company offers a wide variety of alternative meat products and it is the Company’s plan to make these products more readily available to those in the United States via NXMH USA.

 

Prior to the issuance of shares to Next Meats Holdings, Inc., NXMH USA did not have any significant assets, or material transactions, to disclose. The financial statements for Next Meats Holdings, Inc., for its quarter ended April 30, 2022, will be consolidated to include those of NXMH USA.

 

On or about February 8, 2022, we incorporated Next Meats HK Co. Limited (“Next Meats HK”), a Hong Kong Company. Next Meats HK became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The Registry Number associated with this entity in Hong Kong is 3126390. Currently we have paused efforts to pursue selling products in Hong Kong under our wholly owned subsidiary, Next Meats HK Co. Limited (“Next Meats HK”), a Hong Kong Company. We do not believe the current market would be conducive to our business objectives in this area at this point in time. However, we will reassess this decision in the future, although we cannot specifically identity when that may be. Next Meats HK Co. Limited remains a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. 

 

On or about March 2, 2022, we incorporated Next Meats (S) Pte. Ltd. (“Next Meats Singapore”), a Singapore Company. Next Meats Singapore. is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The Company Registration Number in Singapore is 202207295H.

 

These financial statements consolidate those of NXMH, NMCO, NXMH USA, Next Meats HK, and Next Meats Singapore.

 

On December 28, 2021 we filed an amendment to our Articles of Incorporation with the Nevada Secretary of State, resulting in an increase to our authorized shares of Common Stock from 500,000,000 to 1,000,000,000.

 

On December 28, 2021, Ryo Shirai resigned as our Chief Executive Officer and was appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors It should be noted he was previously a Director, but on December 28, 2021 began serving as Chairman of the Board of Directors. Previously, there was no designated Chairman of the Board of Directors.

 

The resignation of Mr. Ryo Shirai, as Chief Executive Officer, was not the result of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to its operations, policies, or practices. 

 

On December 28, 2021, Mr. Koichi Ishizuka was appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

 

There is no arrangement or understanding among the newly appointed officer, Koichi Ishizuka, or any other person, pursuant to which they were appointed as an officer of the Company. 

   

The Company has elected April 30th as its year end.

Note 2 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

This summary of significant accounting policies is presented to assist in understanding the Company's financial statements. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles, generally accepted in the United States of America, and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements.

 

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and should be read in conjunction with the unaudited financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s most recent Annual Financial Statements In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and the results of operations for the interim period presented have been reflected herein. The results of operations for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Notes to the financial statements, which would substantially duplicate the disclosures contained in the unaudited financial statements for the most recent fiscal period, as reported in the 2021 Annual Report, have been omitted. 

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary in order to make the financial statements not misleading have been included. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents at April 30, 20223 and April 30, 2022 were $292,454 and $620,297, respectively.

 

Accounts Receivable and Credit Policies

 

Accounts receivable are recognized and carried at the original invoice amount less allowance for any uncollectible amounts. An estimate for doubtful accounts is made when collection of the full amount is no longer probable. Bad debts are written off as incurred.

 

Advance payments and prepaid expenses

 

Advance payments and prepaid expenses are cash paid amounts that represent costs incurred from which a service or benefit is expected to be derived in the future.

 

Inventory 

 

Inventories, consisting of products available for sale, are primarily accounted for using the first-in, first-out ("FIFO") method, and are valued at the lower of cost or market value. This valuation requires the Company to make judgments, based on currently-available information, about the likely method of disposition, such as through sales to individual customers, returns to product vendors, or liquidations, and expected recoverable values of each disposition category.

 

Fixed assets and depreciation

 

The company recognizes purchased assets with a useful life longer than one year as fixed or non-current assets. These assets are depreciated using the straight-line method of depreciation over the estimated useful life of the assets.

 

Foreign currency translation 

 

The Company maintains its books and records in its local currency, Japanese YEN (“JPY”), which is a functional currency as being the primary currency of the economic environment in which its operation is conducted. Transactions denominated in currencies other than the functional currency are translated into the functional currency at the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transaction. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than the functional currency are translated into the functional currency using the applicable exchange rates at the balance sheet dates. The resulting exchange differences are recorded in the statements of operations. 

 

The reporting currency of the Company is the United States Dollars (“US$”) and the accompanying consolidated financial statements have been expressed in US$. In accordance with ASC Topic 830-30, “Translation of Financial Statement”, assets and liabilities of the Company whose functional currency is not US$ are translated into US$, using the exchange rate on the balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated at average rates prevailing during the period. The gains and losses resulting from translation of financial statements are recorded as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income within the statements of shareholders’ equity.

 

Translation of amounts from the local currency of the Company into US$1 has been made at the following exchange rates:

 

  April 30, 2023
Current JPY: US$1 exchange rate 134.13
Average JPY: US$1 exchange rate 136.38

 

Comprehensive income or loss

 

ASC Topic 220, “Comprehensive Income”, establishes standards for reporting and display of comprehensive income or loss, its components and accumulated balances. Comprehensive income or loss as defined includes all changes in equity during a period from non-owner sources. Accumulated comprehensive income, as presented in the accompanying consolidated statements of shareholders’ equity consists of changes in unrealized gains and losses on foreign currency translation.

 

Revenue recognition

 

The Company adopted ASC 606 - Revenue from contracts with Customers: (1) identify the contract with a customer; (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (3) determine the transaction price; (4) allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation in the contract; and (5) recognize revenue when each performance obligation is satisfied.

 

Revenue for products is recognized when the products are delivered to the customer and the customer complete the product inspection. Cash receipts for undelivered products are recorded as deferred revenues. As of April 30, 2023, the Company had no deferred revenues. 

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC 740, “Income Taxes.” Under the asset and liability method of ASC 740, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period the enactment occurs. A valuation allowance is provided for certain deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that the Company will not realize tax assets through future operations. No deferred tax assets or liabilities were recognized at April 30, 2023 and April 30, 2022.

 

Basic Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

The Company computes basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share in accordance with ASC Topic 260, Earnings per Share. Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the reporting period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if stock options and other commitments to issue common stock were exercised or equity awards vest resulting in the issuance of common stock that could share in the earnings of the Company.

 

The Company does not have any potentially dilutive instruments as of April 30, 2023 and, thus, anti-dilution issues are not applicable.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s balance sheet includes certain financial instruments. The carrying amounts of current assets and current liabilities approximate their fair value because of the relatively short period of time between the origination of these instruments and their expected realization.

ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy that distinguishes between (1) market participant assumptions developed based on market data obtained from independent sources (observable inputs) and (2) an entity’s own assumptions about market participant assumptions developed based on the best information available in the circumstances (unobservable inputs). The fair value hierarchy consists of three broad levels, which gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:

 

- Level 1 - Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities.

- Level 2 - Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, including quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (e.g., interest rates); and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.

- Level 3 - Inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable.  

 

Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of April 30, 2023. The respective carrying value of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments approximated their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments. These financial instruments include accrued expenses.

  

Related Parties

 

The Company follows ASC 850, Related Party Disclosures, for the identification of related parties and disclosure of related party transactions.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). ASU 2016-02 is amended by ASU 2018-01, ASU2018-10, ASU 2018-11, ASU 2018-20 and ASU 2019-01, which FASB issued in January 2018, July 2018, July 2018, December 2018 and March 2019, respectively (collectively, the amended ASU 2016-02). The amended ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize on the balance sheet a right-of-use asset, representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term, and a lease liability for all leases with terms greater than 12 months. The recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee have not significantly changed from current GAAP. The amended ASU 2016-02 retains a distinction between finance leases (i.e. capital leases under current GAAP) and operating leases. The classification criteria for distinguishing between finance leases and operating leases will be substantially similar to the classification criteria for distinguishing between capital leases and operating leases under current GAAP. The amended ASU 2016-02 also requires qualitative and quantitative disclosures designed to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. A modified retrospective transition approach is permitted to be used when an entity adopts the amended ASU 2016-02, which includes a number of optional practical expedients that entities may elect to apply.

 

We have no assets and or leases and do not believe we will be impacted in the foreseeable future by the newly adopted accounting standard(s) mentioned above.

 

The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect and that may impact its financial statements and does not believe that there are any other new pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

Note 3 - Going Concern

 

The Company’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applicable to a going concern that contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.

 

The Company demonstrates adverse conditions that raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern for one year following the issuance of these financial statements. These adverse conditions are negative financial trends, specifically operating loss, working capital deficiency, and other adverse key financial ratios.

 

The Company has not recorded enough revenue to cover its operating costs and gross revenue for the year ended April 30, 2023 decreased by $5,551,102 or 79.87% as compared to the year ended April 30, 2023. Management attributes this drop in revenue to global economic challenges, a restructuring of the Company’s large-scale sales department, changes in product offerings, and discontinued operations in two subsidiaries.

 

We believe the products we offer, and continue to offer, to be a ‘premium’ alternative to traditional food options, which typically coincides with increased costs. Given the condition of the global economy, we believe there is likely less demand for premium alternatives to traditional food products, such as those we currently offer. Over the course of the last year, we believe we have been affected by decreased demand for our products, our decision to no longer wholesale rice, and the decreased price at which we have offered our products, resulting in less revenue for the year ended April 30, 2023.

 

Previously, we also had a wider selection of food options and other facets of our business which we believe drove revenues. Specifically, from time to time we would engage in the wholesale sale of rice, however we no longer engage in the wholesale sale of rice because our previous sole supplier is no longer in business. We believe that due to the current downtrend in the global economy, such efforts should not recommence, if at all, until the global economy recovers to pre-pandemic levels.

 

At this time, we also no longer offer “Next Milk” which we believed would gain popularity in the near term. Various components of the products we offered, or seek to continue to offer, are either not available, or available at price points that are not as attractive. As a result, at this time, it is difficult for us to produce cost effective products that we believe would rival the cost of generic food products, and thus bolster our revenues. We believe many consumers are purchasing more cost-effective options. Because of this, we are exploring means to lessen the cost of our product lineup while maintaining what we believe to be the same quality products, but we cannot forecast with any level of certainty if such efforts will be successful. Many of these endeavors rely on our ability to source ingredients at a lower cost, which, at this time, is a challenge.

 

In December of 2022, we dissolved NextMeats France, a French Entity. We do not believe there to be a great enough demand for our products in France and surrounding areas, although we do still intend to offer our products in areas of Europe in the future. We have also paused efforts to pursue selling products in Hong Kong under our wholly owned subsidiary, Next Meats HK Co. Limited (“Next Meats HK”), a Hong Kong Company. We do not believe the current market would be conducive to our business objectives in this area at this point in time. However, we will reassess this decision in the future, although we cannot specifically identity when that may be. Next Meats HK Co. Limited remains a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. 

 

We expect our other wholly owned subsidiaries, Next Meats USA and Next Meats Japan Co. Ltd, to improve their operating income in the next fiscal year. However, management plans to fund some operating expenses with related party contributions to capital until there is sufficient revenue to cover all operating expenses. There is no assurance that management's plan will be successful. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event that the Company cannot continue as a going concern.

 

Note 4 - Advance payments and Prepaid Expenses

 

Advance payments are comprised of the payments for mainly prepaid rent. As of April 30, 2023 and April 30, 2022, the Company had advance payments of $194,987 and $1,335,832, respectively.  

 

Note 5 - Fixed Assets

 

The company recognizes purchased assets with a useful life longer than one year as fixed or non-current assets. These assets are depreciated using the straight-line method of depreciation over the estimated useful life of the assets.

 

During the year ended April 30, 2023, the Company did not purchase any long-term assets. The Company is depreciating these assets over a 4 to 15 years period once they were put into use. Depreciation expense for the year ended April 30, 2023 was approximately $38,947.

 

During the year ended April 30, 2022, the Company purchased long-term assets, including structures, and various tools, furniture and fixtures, totaling $57,721. The Company is depreciating these assets over a 3 to 18 years period once they were put into use. Depreciation expense for the year ended April 30, 2022 was approximately $54,023.

 

During the year ended April 30, 2023, the Company, through its subsidiary in Japan, disposed of fixed assets, including land and construction in progress due to cancellation of own factory construction plan. The Company recorded a loss on the sale and disposal of these assets which totaled approximately $317,648.

 

During the year ended April 30, 2023, the Company, through its subsidiary in France, disposed of fixed assets, including Machinery and equipment due to liquidation of subsidiary. The Company recorded a profit from the liquidation of the assets as $148,122 of other income. 

 

Note 6 - Income Taxes

 

The Company has not recognized an income tax benefit for its operating losses generated based on uncertainties concerning its ability to generate taxable income in future periods. The tax benefit for the period presented is offset by a valuation allowance established against deferred tax assets arising from the net operating losses, the realization of which could not be considered more likely than not. In future periods, tax benefits and related deferred tax assets will be recognized when management considers realization of such amounts to be more likely than not. As April 30, 2023, the Company has incurred a net  loss of approximately $11,712,412 which resulted in a net operating loss for income tax purposes.  The loss results in a deferred tax asset of approximately $2,459,606 at the effective statutory rate of 21%. The deferred tax asset has been offset by an equal valuation allowance. Given our inception on April 15, 2020, and our fiscal year end of April 30, 2023, we have completed four taxable fiscal years.

 

Potential benefits of income tax losses are not recognized in the accounts until realization is more likely than not.  In assessing the realization of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible. The Company has incurred a net operating loss carryforward of $11,712,412  which begins expiring in 2040. The Company has adopted ASC 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes”, as of its inception. Pursuant to ASC 740 the Company is required to compute tax asset benefits for non-capital losses carried forward. The potential benefit of the net operating loss has not been recognized in these financial statements because the Company cannot be assured it is more likely than not it will utilize the loss carried forward in future years.

 

Significant components of the Company’s deferred tax assets are as follows:

 

    April 30,  
       
    2023   2022  
Deferred tax asset, generated from net operating loss   $ 2,459,606   $ 1,444,881  
Valuation allowance      (2,459,606)     (1,444,881)  
    $ —    $  

The reconciliation of the effective income tax rate to the federal statutory rate is as follows:

 

Federal income tax rate                                                                                                    21.0%     21.0 % 
Increase in valuation allowance                                                                                      (21.0%)     (21.0 %)
Effective income tax rate                                                                                                    0.0%     0.0 %

 

Due to the change in ownership provisions of the Tax Reform Act of 1986, net operating loss carryforwards for Federal income tax reporting purposes are subject to annual limitations. Should a change in ownership occur, net operating loss carryforwards may be limited as to use in future years.

 

Note 7 - Commitments and Contingencies

 

The Company follows ASC 450-20, Loss Contingencies, to report accounting for contingencies. Liabilities for loss contingencies arising from claims, assessments, litigation, fines and penalties and other sources are recorded when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the assessment can be reasonably estimated. There were no commitments or contingencies as of April 30, 2023.

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures.

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

The Company has adopted and maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the reports filed under the Exchange Act, such as this annual report, is collected, recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules of the SEC.  The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are also designed to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.  As required under Exchange Act Rule 13a-15, the Company’s management, including the Chief Executive Officer and our Principal Financial Officer, have conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, both of which are Koichi Ishizuka, concluded that the disclosure controls and procedures are ineffective. 

 

Our Chief Executive Officer, Koichi Ishizuka, has reviewed the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by the report April 30, 2023 and has concluded that (i) the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective to ensure that material information relating to the Company is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Commission, and (ii) the Company’s controls and procedures have not been designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the Company's management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.  

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f).  The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance to the Company’s management and board of directors regarding the preparation and fair presentation of published financial statements.  Management conducted an assessment of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting based on the framework and criteria established by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in Internal Control – Integrated Framework.  Based on the assessment, management concluded that, as of April 30, 2023, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting is ineffective based on those criteria.

 

The Company’s management, including its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, Koichi Ishizuka, do not expect that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures and its internal control processes will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met.  Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs.  Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of error or fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected.  These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that the breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake.  Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the control.  The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.  Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.  Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and may not be detected.  However, these inherent limitations are known features of the financial reporting process.  Therefore, it is possible to design into the process safeguards to reduce, though not eliminate, this risk.

 

The matters involving internal controls and procedures that our Chief Executive Officer considered to be material weaknesses under the standards of the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of Treadway Commission were: inadequate compensating controls, lack of a majority of outside directors on board of directors, resulting in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures, and lack of an audit committee.

 

The Company believes that the material weaknesses are due to the Company’s limited resources and limited operating history.

 

Our Chief Executive Officer believes that the material weaknesses did not have an effect on our financial results. However, management believes that the lack of a functioning audit committee and inadequate segregation of duties results in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures, which could result in a material misstatement in our financial statements in future periods.

 

Our Chief Executive Officer recognizes that its controls and procedures would be substantially improved if we had an audit committee and as such is actively seeking to remediate this issue. 

 

Changes in Internal Control

 

There have been no changes in internal controls over the financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2023, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal controls over financial reporting.

 

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

Employees

 

Details as to our employees are contained herein on page 6 under the subsection titled, “Employees”.

 

Director’s Term of Office

 

Directors will hold office until the next annual meeting of stockholders and the election and qualification of their successors. Officers are elected annually by our board of directors and serve at the discretion of the board of directors. Presently, we have two directors, Hideyuki Sasaki and Koichi Ishizuka.

 

Corporate Governance

 

The Company promotes accountability for adherence to honest and ethical conduct; endeavors to provide full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and in other public communications made by the Company; and strives to be compliant with applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations. The Company has not formally adopted a written code of business conduct and ethics that governs the Company’s employees, officers and Directors as the Company is not required to do so.

 

In lieu of an Audit Committee, the Company’s Board of Directors, is responsible for reviewing and making recommendations concerning the selection of outside auditors, reviewing the scope, results and effectiveness of the annual audit of the Company's financial statements and other services provided by the Company’s independent public accountants. Our officers and directors review the Company's internal accounting controls, practices and policies.

 

Committees of the Board

 

Our Company currently does not have nominating, compensation, or audit committees or committees performing similar functions nor does our Company have a written nominating, compensation or audit committee charter. Our Directors believe that it is not necessary to have such committees, at this time, because the Directors can adequately perform the functions of such committees.

Audit Committee Financial Expert

 

Our Board of Directors have determined that we do not have a board member that qualifies as an “audit committee financial expert” as defined in Item 407(D)(5) of Regulation S-K, nor do we have a Board member that qualifies as “independent” as the term is used in Item 7(d)(3)(iv)(B) of Schedule 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and as defined by Rule 4200(a)(14) of the FINRA Rules.

 

We believe that our Directors are capable of analyzing and evaluating our financial statements and understanding internal controls and procedures for financial reporting. The Directors of our Company do not believe that it is necessary to have an audit committee because management believes that the Board of Directors can adequately perform the functions of an audit committee. In addition, we believe that retaining an independent Director who would qualify as an "audit committee financial expert" would be overly costly and burdensome and is not warranted in our circumstances given the stage of our development.

 

Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings

 

Our officers and directors have not been involved in any of the following events during the past ten years:

 

1. bankruptcy petition filed by or against any business of which such person was a general partner or executive officer either at the time of the bankruptcy or within two years prior to that time;
2. any conviction in a criminal proceeding or being subject to a pending criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations and other minor offenses);
3. being subject to any order, judgment, or decree, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any court of competent jurisdiction, permanently or temporarily enjoining, barring, suspending or otherwise limiting his/her involvement in any type of business, securities or banking activities; or
4. being found by a court of competent jurisdiction (in a civil action), the Commission or the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to have violated a federal or state securities or commodities law, and the judgment has not been reversed, suspended, or vacated.
5. Such person was found by a court of competent jurisdiction in a civil action or by the Commission to have violated any Federal or State securities law, and the judgment in such civil action or finding by the Commission has not been subsequently reversed, suspended, or vacated;
6. Such person was found by a court of competent jurisdiction in a civil action or by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to have violated any Federal commodities law, and the judgment in such civil action or finding by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission has not been subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated;
7. Such person was the subject of, or a party to, any Federal or State judicial or administrative order, judgment, decree, or finding, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, relating to an alleged violation of:(i) Any Federal or State securities or commodities law or regulation; or(ii) Any law or regulation respecting financial institutions or insurance companies including, but not limited to, a temporary or permanent injunction, order of disgorgement or restitution, civil money penalty or temporary or permanent cease-and-desist order, or removal or prohibition order; or(iii) Any law or regulation prohibiting mail or wire fraud or fraud in connection with any business entity; or
8. Such person was the subject of, or a party to, any sanction or order, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any self-regulatory organization (as defined in Section 3(a)(26) of the Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78c(a)(26))), any registered entity (as defined in Section 1(a)(29) of the Commodity Exchange Act (7 U.S.C. 1(a)(29))), or any equivalent exchange, association, entity or organization that has disciplinary authority over its members or persons associated with a member.

 

Independence of Directors

 

We are not required to have independent members of our Board of Directors, and do not anticipate having independent Directors until such time as we are required to do so.

 

Code of Ethics

 

We have not adopted a formal Code of Ethics. The Board of Directors evaluated the business of the Company, and the number of employees and determined that since the business is operated by a small number of persons, general rules of fiduciary duty and federal and state criminal, business conduct and securities laws are adequate ethical guidelines. In the event our operations, employees and/or Directors expand in the future, we may take actions to adopt a formal Code of Ethics.

 

Shareholder Proposals

 

Our Company does not have any defined policy or procedural requirements for shareholders to submit recommendations or nominations for Directors. The Board of Directors believes that, given the stage of our development, a specific nominating policy would be premature and of little assistance until our business operations develop to a more advanced level. Our Company does not currently have any specific or minimum criteria for the election of nominees to the Board of Directors and we do not have any specific process or procedure for evaluating such nominees. The Board of Directors will assess all candidates, whether submitted by management or shareholders, and make recommendations for election or appointment.

 

A shareholder who wishes to communicate with our Board of Directors may do so by directing a written request addressed to our Chief Executive Officer, at the address appearing on the first page of this Registration Statement.

Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence.

General

On January 28, 2021, Next Meats Co., Ltd., along with our Board of Directors, took action to ratify, affirm, and approve the issuance of 452,352,298 shares of restricted common stock to Next Meats Co., Ltd. The shares were issued for services rendered to the Company. Next Meats Co., Ltd. is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Prior to the below transaction, Next Meats Co., Ltd. was our controlling shareholder.

On June 9, 2021 the Company entered into a “Share Cancellation and Exchange Agreement” (referred to herein as “the Agreement”) with Next Meats Co., Ltd., a Japan Company. Pursuant to the Share Cancellation and Exchange Agreement, effective on December 16, 2021, Next Meats Holdings, Inc. acquired Next Meats Co., Ltd. as a wholly owned subsidiary. Commensurate with this action, there was a conversion of the Next Meats Holdings, Inc. percentile share interest in exchange for the Company’s 100% share interest in Next Meats Co., Ltd. Immediately prior to the effective time, each (now former) shareholder of Next Meats Co., Ltd. cancelled and exchanged their percentile share interest in Next Meats Co., Ltd. for an equivalent percentile share interest in Next Meats Holdings, Inc. at a pro rata percentage. As a result of the Share Cancellation and Exchange Agreement, we now own 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Next Meats Co., Ltd., which constitutes 1,000 shares of common stock.
