ITEM 1. BUSINESS

 

Overview of Our Business

Recent Developments

 

UVIC, Inc., was incorporated in Nevada on August 21, 2013.

 

On May 8, 2015, UVIC, Inc., filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission Form S-1 to register 7,000,000 shares of our common stock at a per share price of $0.01 on behalf of selling shareholders. The SEC file number of the registration statement is 333-203997. The Form S-1 was declared effective by the SEC on August 7, 2015.

 

Prior to the transaction described below, UVIC., Inc., had limited operating and development activities.

 

Effective August 22, 2016, the Company entered into an Agreement for the Exchange of Stock (the "Agreement") with Zoompass, Inc., an Ontario, Canada corporation ("Zoompass") that was incorporated under the laws of Ontario on June 8, 2016.   Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company agreed to issue 8,050,784 shares of its restricted common stock to Zoompass' shareholders ("Zoompass' shareholders") in exchange for all the shares of Zoompass Inc. owned by the Zoompass Inc.'s Shareholders.  At the Closing Date, Rob Lee, a significant shareholder of the Company agreed to cancel 7,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock, which shares constituted the control shares of the Company.  Other than this one significant shareholder, shareholders of the Company held 2,670,000 shares. As a result of the Agreement, Zoompass is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.  The Company has amended its Articles of Incorporation to change its name to Zoompass Holdings, Inc. and the appropriate forms were filed with FINRA and the SEC to change its name, address and symbol and complete a 3.5-1 forward split, which was consented to by the majority of shareholders on September 7, 2016 and approved in February 2017, for shareholders of record on September 7, 2016.

 

All share figures have been retroactively stated to reflect the stock split approved by shareholders, unless otherwise indicated.  Additionally, the Company's shareholders consented to an increase of the shares authorized to 500,000,000 and a revision of the par value to $0.0001.

 

As the former Zoompass shareholders ended up owning the majority of the Company, the transaction does not constitute a business combination and was deemed to be a recapitalization of the Company with Zoompass being the accounting acquirer, accordingly the accounting and disclosure information is that of Zoompass going forward.

 

Effective March 6, 2018 (the "Closing Date"), Zoompass Holdings, Inc.'s (the "Company") Canadian operating subsidiary, Zoompass, Inc., entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") for the sale of its Prepaid Card Business ("Prepaid Business") to Fintech Holdings North America Inc., or its designee. The aggregate purchase price of the Prepaid Business was C$400,000. The transaction was completed on March 26, 2018.

 

During the first quarter of 2018, the Company implemented a plan to abandon the mobility solution operation. The Company has determined that the mobility solution operation represents a component and a reportable segment of the Company. According to the plan of abandonment, the Company gradually ceased accepting any new business during first quarter of 2018 and settled all the remaining orders and obligations from mobility solution by end of March 2018.

 

On October 16, 2018, the Company reached an Asset Purchase Agreement and purchased certain business assets that represents a business from Virtublock Global Corp. (“Virtublock”, “VGC”) in return the Company issued 44,911,724 shares to Virtublock and pursuant to the issuance of shares Virtublock ended up owning 45% of total outstanding common shares of the Company.

Zoompass Inc., was incorporated under the laws of Ontario on June 8, 2016.  On October 17, 2018, pursuant to an asset purchase agreement with Virtublock, certain net assets were acquired by the Company in exchange for shares of the Company.  The net assets primarily consisted of certain technology IP related to cryptocurrency exchange/wallet, certain strategic partnerships and customer contracts. On March 25, 2019, the name of the company was changed from Zoompass Inc. to Virtublock Canada Inc. (“VCI”).

 

On February 27, 2020, the Company cancelled 44,911,724 shares of the common stock which were issued in connection with the asset purchase agreement dated October 17, 2018 with Virtublock Global Corp. Pursuant to a General Release agreement dated November 29, 2019, the asset purchase agreement dated October 17, 2018 with Virtublock Global Corp. was deemed cancelled and each party acknowledged and agreed that no party has or shall have any claim with respect to intellectual property, software or other assets owned by any other party and that no agreements exist or remain unsatisfied with respect to the transfer of any asset from a releasing party to any other party, and Virtublock Global Corp. assigned and tendered the 44,911,724 shares of common stock of the Company to the Company for cancellation. As the share cancellation occurred on February 27, 2020, the accounting recognition of this transaction, consisting of a transfer of $4,492 from common stock to additional paid-in capital and related reduction in the number of common shares outstanding, will be reflected in the consolidated financial statements for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

 

On May 31, 2020, the Company closed a Share Exchange Agreement (the "Share Exchange Agreement") by and among the Company, Blockgration Global Corp., an Ontario corporation and its subsidiaries ("BGC"), and the shareholders of BGC (the "BGC Shareholders"). This acquisition gives the Company controlling interest in BGC’s subsidiaries in Canada and India which is engaged in the business of digital wallet deployments, prepaid card platform, blockchain and mobile apps deployment.

 

On September 30, 2020, the Company cancelled 9,330,000 shares of the common stock and 14,845,000 share purchase warrants which was allocated in connection with acquisition of MSS that was a 70% subsidiary of BGC on May 31, 2020. Refer to note 10 and 14 of the consolidated financial statements.

 

The Company has incurred recurring losses from operations and as of December 31, 2020 had a net working capital deficiency and an accumulated deficit. The Company’s continued existence is dependent upon its ability to continue to execute its operating plan and to obtain additional debt or equity financing. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. There can be no assurance that the necessary debt or equity financing will be available, or will be available on terms acceptable to the Company, in which case the Company may be unable to meet its obligations. Should the Company be unable to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business, the net realizable value of its assets may be materially less than the amounts recorded in the consolidated financial statements. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability of recorded asset amounts that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue in existence.

 

During the three months period ended March 31, 2021, the Company completed a private placement for the sale of non-registered shares of the Company's common stock. As a result of the private placement 3,614,685 non-registered shares of the Company's common stock was issued for gross proceeds of $298,355.

 

In August 2021, the Company completed a private placement for the sale of non-registered shares of the Company's common stock. As a result of the private placement 1,200,000 non-registered shares of the Company's common stock was issued for gross proceeds of $96,000.

 

There is no certainty that the Company will be successful in generating sufficient cash flow from operations or achieving and maintaining profitable operations in the future to enable it to meet its obligations as they come due and consequently continue as a going concern. The Company will require additional financing in the future to fund its operations and it is currently working on securing this funding through corporate collaborations, public or private equity offerings or debt financings. Issuance of additional equity securities by the Company would result in the dilution of the interests of existing shareholders. There can be no assurance that financing will be available when required.

Beginning in March 2020, the Governments of Canada and the United States, as well as other foreign governments instituted emergency measures as a result of the COVID-19 virus outbreak. The virus has had a major impact on North America and international securities, currency markets and consumer activity which may impact the Company's financial position, its results of future operations and its future cash flows significantly. Given the daily evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak and the global responses to curb its spread, the Company is not able to estimate the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on its results of future operations, financial position, and liquidity in fiscal year 2021.

 

The Company is actively seeking opportunities to enter into partnership or acquire third parties with existing revenue streams. The company is well positioned to achieve this objective and will continue to pursue such opportunities going forward.

 

The Company will remain a Fintech company and continue to develop and acquire software platforms and services to sell to customers globally with a focus on leading edge technologies and software as a service.

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

Global Economic Conditions

The unprecedented events in global financial markets in the past several years have had a profound impact on the global economy. Many industries have been impacted by these market conditions. Market events and conditions, including volatility in the international credit markets and other financial systems and the deterioration of global economic conditions, could impede the Company's access to capital or increase the cost of capital and may adversely affect the Company's operations. The Company is also exposed to liquidity risks in meeting its operating and capital expenditure requirements in instances where the Company's cash position is unable to be maintained or appropriate financing is unavailable. These factors may impact the Company's ability to obtain capital on terms favourable to it or at all. Increased market volatility may impact the Company's operations which could adversely affect the trading price of the Common Shares.

 

Operating and Capital Requirements

The Company competes for financing and personnel with other financial technology companies. There can be no assurance that additional capital or other types of financing will be available, when needed, or that, if available, the terms of such financing will be favourable to the Company. The Company may need to make significant expenditures in connection with the development of its platform or other lines of business.  There is no assurance that any such funds will be available for operations and the ability of the Company to raise such capital will depend, in part, upon conditions in the capital markets at the time and its historical business performance. If additional capital is raised by the issuance of shares from the treasury of the Company, shareholders may suffer dilution. Future borrowings by the Company or its subsidiaries may increase the level of financial and interest rate risk to the Company as the Company will be required to service future indebtedness. Further, failure to obtain additional financing on a timely basis could cause the Company to reduce, suspend, or terminate its proposed operations.

 

Dependence on Highly Skilled Personnel

The Company's prospects depend in part on the services of key executives and other highly skilled and experienced personnel focused on managing the Company's interests, in addition to the identification of new opportunities for growth and funding. The loss of these persons or the Company's inability to attract and retain additional highly skilled employees required for the Company's activities may have a material adverse effect on its business or future operations. The Company does not currently maintain "key person" life insurance on any of its key employees.

 

 

 

7 
 
 

 

Negative Operating Cash Flow

The Company has negative operating cash flow and may continue to have negative operating cash flow in future periods. To the extent that the Company has negative operating cash flow, the Company will need to continue to deploy a portion of its cash reserves to fund such negative operating cash flow.

 

Limited operating history of the Company's new direction; No assurance of profitability; anticipated losses.

The Company has a limited operating history and, accordingly, has a limited operating history on which to base an evaluation of our business. Our business must be considered in light of the risks, expenses and problems frequently encountered by companies in their early stages of development, particularly companies in new and rapidly evolving markets which involve technology. The in-development operations are subject to all of the risks inherent in the establishment of a new business enterprise. Accordingly, the likelihood of our success must be considered in the light of the problems, expenses, difficulties, complications, and delays frequently encountered in connection with the starting and expansion of a business and the relatively competitive environment in which we will operate. Unanticipated delays, expenses and other problems such as setbacks in launch and development, product sourcing manufacturing, and market acceptance are frequently encountered in establishing a new business such as the Company`s. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in addressing such risks, and any failure to do so could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

Because of the Company`s limited operating history, the Company has limited historical financial data on which to base planned operating expenses. Accordingly, our expense levels, which are, to a large extent, variable, will be based in part on our expectations of future revenues. As a result of the variable nature of many of our expenses, we may be unable to adjust spending in a timely manner to compensate for any unexpected delays in the development and

 

marketing of our products or any subsequent revenue shortfall. Any such delays or shortfalls will have an immediate adverse impact on our business, operating results and financial condition.

 

The Company has not achieved profitability to date. To the extent that net revenue does not grow at anticipated rates or that increases in its operating expenses precede or are not subsequently followed by commensurate increases in net revenue, or that the Company is unable to adjust operating expense levels accordingly, the Company's business, results of operations and financial condition will be materially and adversely affected. There can be no assurance that the Company's operating losses will not increase in the future or that the Company will ever achieve or sustain profitability.

 

Regulatory Risk

Although the Company follows certain laws and regulations and receives the requisite approvals to operate in the lines of business it currently or intends to operate in there is no guarantee that these laws, regulations and approvals will not be challenged or impugned. Further changing regulatory regimes may subject the Company to new laws and regulations.  Changes in the regulatory environment the Company operates in can have a material adverse effect on operations. 

 

Demand for our products and services may not develop as expected our projected revenues and profits will be affected.

Future profits are influenced by many factors, including economics, and will be predicated on a stable and/or growing market and the purchase and consumption of our products and services.  The Company believes, and our growth expectations assume, that the markets for our suite of products and services will continue to grow, that the Company will increase its penetration of these markets and that our anticipated revenue from selling into this market will continue to increase. If the Company's expectations as to the size of these markets and its ability to sell our products and services in this market are not correct, our revenue may not materialize, and our business will be harmed.

 

 

8 
 
 

 

Operating results may fluctuate and may fall below expectations in any fiscal quarter.

Our operating results are difficult to predict and are expected to fluctuate from quarter to quarter due to a variety of factors, many of which are outside of our control. As a result, comparing our operating results on a period-to-period basis may not be meaningful, and you should not rely on our past results or future predictions prepared by the Company as an indication of our future performance. If our revenue or operating results fall in any period, the value of our common stock would likely decline.

 

Factors that may cause our operating results to fluctuate include:

 

  our ability to arrange potential financing or generate operating cash flows;
  our ability to acquire products to resell to our customers;
  changes in federal, state and local government;
  availability and costs of labor and equipment;
  the addition of new customers or the loss of existing customers;
  our ability to control costs, including operating expenses;
  changes in the mix of our products and services;
  the length of our sales cycle;
  the productivity and growth of our sales force;
  the timing of opening of new offices or making other significant investments in the growth of our business, as the revenue we hope to generate from those expenses often lags several quarters behind those expenses:
  changes in pricing by us or our competitors;
  costs related to the acquisition and integration of companies or assets;
  general economic trends, including changes in geopolitical events such as war or incidents of terrorism; and
  future accounting pronouncements and changes in accounting policies.

 

The Company operates in a highly competitive industry and competitors may compete more effectively.

Many of our competitors have longer operating histories and greater resources than us, and could focus their substantial financial resources to develop a competing business model, develop products or services that are more attractive to potential customers than what we offer or convince our potential customers that they should require financing arrangements that would be impractical for smaller companies to offer. Our competitors may also offer

products and services at prices below cost and/or devote significant sales forces to competing with us or attempt to recruit our key personnel by increasing compensation, any of which could improve their competitive positions. Any of these competitive factors could make it more difficult for us to attract and retain customers; cause us to lower our prices in order to compete, and reduce our market share and revenue, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and operating results. We can provide no assurance that we will continue to effectively compete against our current competitors or additional companies that may enter our markets.

  

International operations could expose business to additional risks 

The Company expects to generate a portion of sales outside of Canada in the future. Operating internationally is one of our growth strategies, and we expect our revenue and operations outside of North America will expand in the future. These operations will be subject to a variety of risks that we do not face currently:

 

  establishing and managing highly experienced foreign suppliers, distributors and relationships and overseeing and ensuring the performance of foreign subcontractors;
  increased travel, infrastructure and legal and compliance costs associated with multiple international locations;
  additional withholding taxes or other taxes on our foreign income, and tariffs or other restrictions on foreign trade or investment;

 

 

9 
 
 

 

 

  imposition of, or unexpected adverse changes in, foreign laws or regulatory requirements, many of which differ from those which the Company currently operates in;
  increased exposure to foreign currency exchange rate risk;    
  longer payment cycles for sales in some foreign countries and potential difficulties in enforcing contracts and collecting accounts receivable;
  difficulties in repatriating overseas earnings;
  general economic conditions in the countries in which we operate; and
  political unrest, war, incidents of terrorism or responses to such events.

 

Our overall success in international markets will depend, in part, on our ability to succeed in differing legal, regulatory, economic, social and political conditions. We may not be successful in developing and implementing policies and strategies that will be effective in managing these risks in each country where we do business. Our failure to manage these risks successfully could harm our international operations, reduce our international sales and increase our costs, thus adversely affecting our business, financial condition and operating results.

 

The Company relies on outside consultants, service providers and suppliers 

We will rely on the experience of consultants, service providers and suppliers. In the event that one or more of these consultants or terminates its relationship with the Company, or becomes unavailable, suitable replacements will need to be obtained and there is no assurance that such consultants, service providers and suppliers could be obtained under conditions favorable to us.

 

We rely on strategic relationships to promote our products

The Company relies on strategic partnerships with outside companies and individuals to promote and supply certain of our products and services, thus making the future success of our business particularly contingent on the efforts of other parties. An important part of our strategy is to promote acceptance of our products through with certain service providers who we feel could assist us with our promotion strategies. Our dependence raises potential risks with respect to the future success of our business. Our success is dependent on the successful completion and commercial deployment of our products and services and on the future commitment of our distributors to our products and technology.

 

Reliance on our suppliers

The Company relies vendors and suppliers to provide power, as well as high quality products and services on a consistent basis.  The future success of the Company is contingent on the efforts and performance of these suppliers. The Company may have difficulty in locating or using alternative resources should supply problems arise with the current suppliers. An interruption or reduction in the source of supply of or an unanticipated increase in vendor prices, could materially affect our operating results and damage customer relationships as well as our business. 

 

 

Future growth could strain resources, and if the Company is unable to manage growth, it may not be able to successfully implement our business plan. 

The Company hopes to experience rapid growth in operations, which will place a significant strain on our management, administrative, operational and financial infrastructure. Our future success will depend in part upon the ability of our executive officers to manage growth effectively. This will require that we hire and train additional personnel to manage our expanding operations. In addition, we must continue to improve our operational, financial and management controls and our reporting systems and procedures. If we fail to successfully manage our growth, we may be unable to execute upon our business plan.

 

Failure to protect intellectual property, our planned business could be adversely affected. 

Despite efforts to protect and ensure the Company has proprietary rights, parties may attempt to copy aspects of our products, obtain, claim and use information that we regard as proprietary. Unauthorized use of our proprietary technology could harm our business. Litigation to protect our intellectual property rights can be costly and time-consuming to prosecute, and there can be no assurance that we will have the financial or other resources necessary to enforce or defend a patent infringement or proprietary rights violation action. 

 

 Unforeseen Liabilities from Past Acquisitions

There may be liabilities and claims that the Company has failed to discover or has underestimated in connection with previous acquisitions. In addition, there may be expenditure requirements that the Company has failed to discover or underestimated in connection with these acquisitions, which amounts may be material. Any such liabilities or expenditure requirements could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial condition or future prospects.

 

 

10 
 
 

 

 

Conflicts of Interest

Certain of the directors and officers of the Corporation also serve as directors and/or officers of other companies there exists the possibility for such directors and officers to be in a position of conflict. Any decision made by any of such directors and officers will be made in accordance with their duties and obligations to deal fairly and in good faith with a view to the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. In addition, each director is required to declare and refrain from voting on any matter in which such director may have a conflict of interest.

 

If we issue additional shares in the future, it will result in the dilution of our existing stockholders.

Our articles of incorporation authorize the issuance of up to 500,000,000 shares of our common stock, with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Our board of directors may choose to issue some or all of such shares to acquire one or more companies or products and to fund our overhead and general operating requirements. The issuance of any such shares will reduce the book value per share and may contribute to a reduction in the market price of the outstanding shares of our common stock. If we issue any such additional shares, such issuance will reduce the proportionate ownership and voting power of all current stockholders. Further, such issuance may result in a change of control of our company.

 

Trading of our stock is restricted by the Securities Exchange Commission's penny stock regulations, which may limit a stockholder's ability to buy and sell our common stock. 

The Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted regulations which generally define "penny stock" to be any equity security that has a market price (as defined) less than $5.00 per share or an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. Our securities are covered by the penny stock rules, which impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and "accredited investors". The term "accredited investor" refers generally to institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with a net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouse. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document in a form prepared by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer's account. The bid and offer quotations, and the broker-dealer and salesperson compensation information, must be given to the customer orally or in writing prior to effecting the transaction and must be given to the customer in writing before or with the customer's confirmation. In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from these rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for the stock that is subject to these penny stock rules. Consequently, these penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to trade our securities. We believe that the penny stock rules discourage investor interest in and limit the marketability of our common stock.

 

FINRA sales practice requirements may also limit a stockholder's ability to buy and sell our stock. 

In addition to the "penny stock" rules described above, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") has adopted rules that require that in recommending an investment to a customer, a broker-dealer must have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer. Prior to recommending speculative low-priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer's financial status, tax status, investment objectives and other information. Under interpretations of these rules, FINRA believes that there is a high probability that speculative low-priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. FINRA requirements make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend that their customers buy our common stock, which may limit your ability to buy and sell our stock and have an adverse effect on the market for our stock.

 

The price of our common stock may be negatively impacted by factors that are unrelated to our operations.

Although our common stock is currently listed for quotation on the OTC Markets and a market is established and trading has begun, trading through the OTCQB is frequently thin and highly volatile. There is no assurance that a sufficient market will continue in our stock, in which case it could be difficult for stockholders to sell their stock. The market price of our common stock could fluctuate substantially due to a variety of factors, including market perception of our ability to achieve our planned growth, quarterly operating results of our competitors, trading volume in our common stock, changes in general conditions in the economy and the financial markets or other developments affecting our competitors or us. In addition, the stock market is subject to extreme price and volume fluctuations. This volatility has had a significant effect on the market price of securities issued by many companies for reasons unrelated to their operating performance and could have the same effect on our common stock.

 

We do not intend to pay dividends on any investment in the shares of stock of our company. 

We have never paid any cash dividends, and currently do not intend to pay any dividends for the foreseeable future. Because we do not intend to declare dividends, any gain on an investment in our company will need to come through an increase in the stock's price. This may never happen, and investors may lose all of their investment in our company.

ITEM 3.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

From time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings, which arise in the ordinary course of business. However, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these, or other matters, may arise from time to time that may harm our business.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company learned that a class action complaint (the “Class Action Complaint”) had been filed against the Company, its Chief Executive Officer and its Chief Financial Officer in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.  The Class Action Complaint alleges, inter alia, that defendants violated the federal securities laws by, among other things, failing to disclose that the Company was engaged in an unlawful scheme to promote its stock.  The Company has been served with the Class Action Complaint.  The Company has analyzed the Class Action Complaint and, based on that analysis, has concluded that it is legally deficient and otherwise without merit.  The Company intends to vigorously defend against these claims.

 

 On August 7, 2018, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey dismissed the Class Action Complaint.  Additionally, subsequent to the year end on August 21, 2018, the Company was served with the Second Amended Complaint in the District of New Jersey.  The Company filed a motion to dismiss the Second Amended Complaint on September 18, 2018.  On January 23, 2019, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey dismissed the Second Amended Complaint with prejudice.  Plaintiff filed a motion for reconsideration of the dismissal order on February 7, 2019.  On May 14, 2019, the Plaintiff’s motion to reconsider was denied. On June 10, 2019, the plaintiffs filed an appeal with United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. As of May 27, 2020, the Class Action Complaints, including applicable appeals, have been settled or dismissed by the parties and the applicable courts.

 

Also during the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company learned that two derivative complaints (the “Derivative Complaints”) on behalf of the Company have been filed against the Company’s Directors and Chief Executive Officer, President, Corporate Secretary, and Chief Financial Officer, and nominally against the Company, in Nevada state and federal court.  The state court action subsequently was removed to federal court.  The Derivative Complaints allege, inter alia, that the Company’s officers and directors directed the Company to undertake an unlawful scheme to promote its stock.  The Company has been served with the Derivative Complaints.  The Company has analyzed them and, based on its analysis, has concluded that the Derivative Complaints are legally deficient and otherwise without merit.  As of May 27, 2020, the Derivative Complaints, including applicable appeals, have been settled or dismissed by the parties and the applicable courts.   

 

The Company was also served with a third derivative action, which was filed March 23, 2018, against the Company’s Directors and Chief Executive Officer, President, and Corporate Secretary, and nominally against the Company, in Nevada state court.  Subsequently, this case was removed to federal court. As of May 27, 2020, the Derivative Complaint, including applicable appeals, have been settled or dismissed by the parties and the applicable courts.

Approximate Number of Holders of Our Common Stock

  

As of September 24, 2021, the Company had 155 active stockholders of record and 110,976,094 shares of common stock were issued and outstanding. Because some of our common stock is held by brokers and other institutions on behalf of stockholders, we are unable to estimate the total number of stockholders represented by these record holders.

Dividend Policy

 

The Company has not declared any dividends since incorporation and does not anticipate doing so in the foreseeable future. We currently intend to retain most, if not all, of our available funds and any future earnings to operate and expand our business.

 

Our board of directors has discretion on whether to pay dividends unless the distribution would render us unable to repay our debts as they become due. Even if our board of directors decides to pay dividends, the form, frequency and amount will depend upon our future operations and earnings, capital requirements and surplus, general financial condition, contractual restrictions and other factors that the board of directors may deem relevant.

Nature of Operations

 

Zoompass Holdings, Inc. formerly known as UVIC. Inc. ("Zoompass Holdings" or the "Company") was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on August 21, 2013. Effective August 22, 2016, the Company entered into an Agreement for the Exchange of Stock (the "Agreement") with Zoompass, Inc., an Ontario, Canada corporation ("Zoompass"). Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company agreed to issue 8,050,784 shares of its restricted common stock to Zoompass' shareholders ("Zoompass' shareholders") in exchange for all the shares of Zoompass Inc. owned by the Zoompass Inc.'s Shareholders. At the Closing Date, Rob Lee, a significant shareholder of the Company agreed to cancel 7,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock, which shares constituted the control shares of the Company. Other than this one significant shareholder, shareholders of the Company held 2,670,000 shares. As a result of the Agreement, Zoompass is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The Company has amended its Articles of Incorporation to change its name to Zoompass Holdings, Inc. and the appropriate forms were filed with FINRA and the SEC to change its name, address and symbol and complete a 3.5-1 forward split, which was consented to by the majority of shareholders on September 7, 2016 and approved in February 2017, for shareholders of record on September 7, 2016.

 

All share figures have been retroactively stated to reflect the stock split approved by shareholders, unless otherwise indicated. Additionally, the Company's shareholders consented to an increase of the shares authorized to 500,000,000 and a revision of the par value to $0.0001.

 

As the former Zoompass shareholders ended up owning the majority of the Company, the transaction does not constitute a business combination and was deemed to be a recapitalization of the Company with Zoompass being the accounting acquirer, accordingly the accounting and disclosure information is that of Zoompass going forward.

 

Effective March 6, 2018 (the "Closing Date"), Zoompass Holdings, Inc.'s (the "Company") Canadian operating subsidiary, Zoompass, Inc., entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") for the sale of its Prepaid Card Business ("Prepaid Business") to Fintech Holdings North America Inc., or its designee. The aggregate purchase price of the Prepaid Business was C$400,000. The transaction was completed on March 26, 2018.

 

During the first fiscal quarter of 2018, the Company implemented a plan to abandon the mobility solution operation. The Company has determined that the mobility solution operation represents a component and a reportable segment of the Company. According to the plan of abandonment, the Company gradually ceased accepting any new business during first fiscal quarter of 2018 and settled all the remaining orders and obligations from mobility solution by end of March 2018.

 

On October 17, 2018, the Company reached an Asset Purchase Agreement and purchased certain business assets that represents a business from Virtublock Global Corp. (“Virtublock”, “VGC”) in return the Company issued 44,911,724 shares to Virtublock and pursuant to the issuance of shares Virtublock ended up owning 45% of total outstanding common shares of the Company.

Zoompass Inc., was incorporated under the laws of Ontario on June 8, 2016. On October 17, 2018, pursuant to an asset purchase agreement with Virtublock, certain net assets were acquired by the Company in exchange for shares of the Company. The net assets primarily consisted of certain technology IP related to cryptocurrency exchange/wallet, certain strategic partnerships and customer contracts. On March 25, 2019, the name of the company was changed from Zoompass Inc. to Virtublock Canada Inc. (“VCI”).

 

On February 27, 2020, the Company cancelled 44,911,724 shares of the common stock which were issued in connection with the asset purchase agreement dated October 17, 2018 with Virtublock Global Corp. Pursuant to a General Release agreement dated November 29, 2019, the asset purchase agreement dated October 17, 2018 with Virtublock Global Corp. was deemed cancelled and each party acknowledged and agreed that no party has or shall have any claim with respect to intellectual property, software or other assets owned by any other party and that no agreements exist or remain unsatisfied with respect to the transfer of any asset from a releasing party to any other party, and Virtublock Global Corp. assigned and tendered the 44,911,724 shares of common stock of the Company to the Company for cancellation. As the share cancellation occurred on February 27, 2020, the accounting recognition of this transaction, consisting of a transfer of $4,492 from common stock to additional paid-in capital and related reduction in the number of common shares outstanding, will be reflected in the consolidated financial statements for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

 

On May 31, 2020, the Company closed a Share Exchange Agreement (the "Share Exchange Agreement") by and among the Company, Blockgration Global Corp., an Ontario corporation and its subsidiaries ("BGC"), and the shareholders of BGC (the "BGC Shareholders"). This acquisition gives the Company controlling interest in BGC’s subsidiaries in Canada and India which is engaged in the business of digital wallet deployments, prepaid card platform, blockchain and mobile apps deployment.

 

On September 30, 2020, the Company cancelled 9,330,000 shares of the common stock and 14,845,000 share purchase warrants which was allocated in connection with acquisition of MSS that was a 70% subsidiary of BGC on May 31, 2020. Refer to note 10 and 14 of the consolidated financial statements.

 

The Company is actively seeking opportunities to enter into partnership or acquire third parties with existing revenue streams. The company is well positioned to achieve this objective and will continue to pursue such opportunities going forward.

 

The Company will remain a Fintech company and continue to develop and acquire software platforms and services to sell to customers globally with a focus on leading edge technologies and software as a service.

 

The Company has incurred recurring losses from operations and as of December 31, 2020 had a net working capital deficiency and an accumulated deficit. The Company’s continued existence is dependent upon its ability to continue to execute its operating plan and to obtain additional debt or equity financing. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. There can be no assurance that the necessary debt or equity financing will be available, or will be available on terms acceptable to the Company, in which case the Company may be unable to meet its obligations. Should the Company be unable to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business, the net realizable value of its assets may be materially less than the amounts recorded in the consolidated financial statements. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability of recorded asset amounts that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue in existence.

 

During the three months period ended March 31, 2021, the Company completed a private placement for the sale of non-registered shares of the Company's common stock. As a result of the private placement 3,614,685 non-registered shares of the Company's common stock was issued for gross proceeds of $298,355.

 

In August 2021, the Company completed a private placement for the sale of non-registered shares of the Company's common stock. As a result of the private placement 1,200,000 non-registered shares of the Company's common stock was issued for gross proceeds of $96,000.

 

There is no certainty that the Company will be successful in generating sufficient cash flow from operations or achieving and maintaining profitable operations in the future to enable it to meet its obligations as they come due and consequently continue as a going concern. The Company will require additional financing in the future to fund its operations and it is currently working on securing this funding through corporate collaborations, public or private equity offerings or debt financings. Sales of additional equity securities by the Company would result in the dilution of the interests of existing shareholders. There can be no assurance that financing will be available when required.

 

The Company expects the forgoing, or a combination thereof, to meet the Company's anticipated cash requirements for the next 12 months; however, these conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

 

17 
 
 

 

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the basis that the Company will continue as a going concern, which presumes that it will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business as they come due. These consolidated financial statements do not reflect the adjustments to the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the reported expenses and consolidated statement of balance sheet classifications that would be necessary if the Company were unable to realize its assets and settle its liabilities as a going concern in the normal course of operations. Such adjustments could be material.  

 

For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company incurred a net loss of $19,214,889 (2019 - $ 615,256).

 

The Company may incur additional operating losses for the 2021 fiscal year.  

 

Beginning in March 2020, the Governments of Canada and the United States, as well as other foreign governments instituted emergency measures as a result of the COVID-19 virus outbreak. The virus has had a major impact on North America and international securities, currency markets and consumer activity which may impact the Company's financial position, its results of future operations and its future cash flows significantly. Given the daily evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak and the global responses to curb its spread, the Company is not able to estimate the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on its results of future operations, financial position, and liquidity in fiscal year 2021.

Share-based payment expense was $1,549,762 for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared with $227,000 for the year ended December 31, 2019. The increase was due to increased level of activity in 2020 and issuance of stock options and shares as compensation when compared with December 2019.

There is no certainty that we will be successful in generating sufficient cash flow from operations or achieving and maintaining profitable operations in the future to enable us to meet our obligations as they come due and consequently continue as a going concern. The Company may require additional funds to further develop our expanded business plan.  The Company may require additional financing this year to fund our operations and is examining possible sources of funding beyond the existing cash generated from operations.  Sales of additional equity securities would result in the dilution of the interests of existing stockholders. There can be no assurance that financing will be available when required. In the event that the necessary additional financing is not obtained, the Company would reduce its discretionary overhead costs substantially, or otherwise curtail operations. 

  

Net Cash Used in Operating Activities

 

During the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, $545,580 and $538,609 in cash, respectively, was used for operations. 

 

Net Cash Used in Investing Activities

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company generated $nil from investing activities compared with cash used in investing activities of $114,153 for year ended December 31, 2020.

 

Net Cash Provided by Financing Activities

 

For the year ended December 31, 2020 the Company raised $883,715 from financing activities that included $388,586 from the issuance of shares of its common stock, proceeds from note payable and debt of $365,068 and $75,600 respectively.

 

For the year ended December 31, 2019 the Company raised $264,337 from the issuances of shares of its common stock and received advances in amount of $286,188 from related party corporations.

Financial instruments and risk factors

 

The Company has exposure to liquidity risk and foreign currency risk.  The Company's risk management objective is to preserve and redeploy the existing treasury as appropriate, ultimately to protect shareholder value.  Risk management strategies, as discussed below, are designed and implemented to ensure the Company's risks and the related exposure are consistent with the business objectives and risk tolerance.

 

Liquidity Risk: Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will not be able to meet its financial obligations as they come due.  The Company manages its liquidity by ensuring that there is sufficient capital to meet short and long-term business requirements, after taking into account cash requirements from operations and the Company's holdings of cash and cash equivalents. The Company also strives to maintain sufficient financial liquidity at all times in order to participate in investment opportunities as they arise, as well as to withstand sudden adverse changes in economic circumstances.

 

Management forecasts cash flows for its current and subsequent fiscal years to predict future financing requirements.  Future requirements may be met through a combination of credit and access to capital markets.  The Company's cash requirements are dependent on the level of operating activity, a large portion of which is discretionary.  Should management decide to increase its operating activity, more funds than what is currently in place would be required.  It is not possible to predict whether financing efforts will be successful or sufficient in the future.   At December 31, 2020, the Company had $64,412 in cash and cash equivalents (December 31, 2019 - $21,477).

 

The following are the maturities, excluding interest payments, reflecting undiscounted future cash disbursements of the Company's financial liabilities based on the period year ended December 31, 2020.

 

    2021   2022
         
Accounts payable and accrued liabilities   $ 1,843,780     $ —    
Notes payable     530,896          
Due to related party corporations     65,020          
Long-term debt     353,498       762,147  
    $ 2,793,194     $ 762,147  

 

Currency risk: The Company's expenditures are incurred in Canadian and US dollars.  The results of the Company's operations are subject to currency translation risk.  The Company mitigates foreign exchange risk through forecasting its foreign currency denominated expenditures and maintaining an appropriate balance of cash in each currency to meet the expenditures.  As the Company's reporting currency is the US dollar, fluctuations in US dollar will affect the results of the Company. 

 

Credit risk: Credit risk is the risk of loss associated with a counterparty's inability to fulfill its payment obligations. As at December 31, 2020, the Company's credit risk is primarily attributable to cash and cash equivalents, and accounts receivable. At December 31, 2020, the Company's cash and cash equivalents were held with reputable Canadian chartered banks.  At December 31, 2020, the Company had an allowance for doubtful accounts of $NIL (December 31, 2019 - $NIL) as a result of a review of collectability of the amount outstanding and the duration of time it was outstanding. 

 

Interest rate risk: Interest rate risk is the risk borne by an interest-bearing asset or liability as a result of fluctuations in interest rates.  Financial assets and financial liabilities with variable interest rates expose the Company to cash flow interest rate risk.  The Company's does not have significant interest rate risk as the promissory note have been settled during the year.

 

Fair values:  The carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheet for cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivables, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate fair value because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Basis of presentation

 

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP"). The consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, which, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present a fair statement of the results for the year. 

 

Translation of foreign currencies

The functional currency of the Company, PM and ZTI is the US dollar. The Company has determined that the functional currency of ZM, BGC and ZMG is the Canadian dollar. (references to which are denoted "C$"), for BSP and MSS is the Indian Rupees and for VO is the Euro. The reporting currency of the Company is US Dollar.

Transactions in currencies other than the functional currency are recorded at the rates of the exchange prevailing on dates of transactions. At each balance sheet reporting date, monetary assets and liabilities that are denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the rates prevailing at each reporting date. Non-monetary items that are measured in terms of historical cost in a foreign currency are translated at the exchange rate at the historical date of the transaction. The impact from the translation of foreign currency denominated items are reflected in the statement of operations and comprehensive loss.

Translation of functional currencies to reporting currencies for assets and liabilities is done using the exchange rates at each balance sheet date; revenue and expenses are translated at average rates prevailing during the reporting period or at the date of the transaction; shareholders' equity is translated at historical rates. Adjustments resulting from translating the consolidated financial statements into the US Dollar are recorded as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income in the statement of changes in stockholders’ deficiency.

Revenue recognition

 

The Company's revenue recognition policy follows ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which provides guidance on the recognition, presentation and disclosure of revenue from contracts with customers in consolidated financial statements.

 

Revenue is measured based on the consideration specified in a contract with a customer. Once the Company determines a contract's performance obligations and the transaction price, including an estimate of any variable consideration, the Company allocates the transaction price to each performance obligation in the contract using a stand-alone selling price. The Company recognizes revenue when it satisfies a performance obligation by transferring control of a product or service to a customer. Revenue is recognized net of any taxes collected from customers, which are subsequently remitted to governmental authorities.

 

Nature of performance obligations

 

At contract inception, the Company assesses the services promised in the contract with a customer and identifies a performance obligation for each promise to transfer to the customer a service (or bundle of services) that is distinct. To identify the performance obligations, the Company considers all the services promised in the contract regardless of whether they are explicitly stated or implied.

 

The following is a description of the Company's principal revenue generating activities.

Revenue is principally derived from time basis billing for IT professional services provided to customers. Professional services in these contracts are primarily considered a single performance obligation. Revenue for these contracts is recognized over time for the amount which the Company has right to consideration. The Company also derived revenue from enabling various payment transactions which is recognized on a fixed fees per transaction basis at a point in time as services are rendered. Deferred revenue is recognized for transactions arising during the current reporting period when it receives consideration from a customer before achieving certain criteria that must be met for revenue to be recognized. Deferred revenue is a liability as of the reporting period related to revenue producing activity for which revenue has not yet been recognized.

Financial instruments

 

ASC Topic 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. Included in the ASC Topic 820 framework is a three level valuation inputs hierarchy with Level 1 being inputs and transactions that can be effectively fully observed by market participants spanning to Level 3 where estimates are unobservable by market participants outside of the Company and must be estimated using assumptions developed by the Company. The Company discloses the lowest level input significant to each category of asset or liability valued within the scope of ASC Topic 820 and the valuation method as exchange, income or use. The Company uses inputs which are as observable as possible and the methods most applicable to the specific situation of each company or valued item.

 

The carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheets for cash and cash equivalents, cash in trust and customer deposits, accounts receivables and due from related party corporations, net of any allowances for doubtful accounts, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, promissory note, due to related party corporations, and client funds approximate fair value because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization. The allowance for doubtful accounts is reflected in "Office and Sundry" expenses on the statement of operations and comprehensive loss.  Per ASC Topic 820 framework these are considered Level 2 inputs where inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

The Company's policy is to recognize transfers into and out of Level 3 as of the date of the event or change in the circumstances that caused the transfer. There were no such transfers during the year.

 

Basic and diluted loss per share

 

Basic and diluted loss per share has been determined by dividing the net loss available to shareholders for the applicable period by the basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding, respectively. The diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding is calculated as if all dilutive options had been exercised or vested at the later of the beginning of the reporting period or date of grant, using the treasury stock method.

 

Loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common shares outstanding during the period. Common share equivalents, options and warrants are excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share when their effect as anti-dilutive.

 

Segment reporting

 

ASC 280-10, "Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information", establishes standards for the way that public business enterprises report information about operating segments in the Company's consolidated financial statements. Operating segments are components of an enterprise about which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. Significantly all of the assets of the Company are located in, all revenues are currently earned in Canada and the Company’s research, development and strategical planning operations are carried out and served as an integral part of the Company’s business. The Company’s reportable segments and operating segments include rendering of professional services.

Cash and cash equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents include demand deposits held with banks and highly liquid investments with original maturities of ninety days or less at acquisition date. For purposes of reporting cash flows, the Company considers all cash accounts that are not subject to withdrawal restrictions or penalties to be cash and cash equivalents. Cash in trust and customer deposits are amounts held by the Company at various financial institutions for settlement of clients' funds payable.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Equipment is stated at historic cost. The Company has the following sub-categories of property and equipment with useful lives and depreciation methods as follows:

 

   • Office equipment and furniture – 20% declining balance per year

 

The cost of assets sold, retired, or otherwise disposed of and the related accumulated depreciation are eliminated from the accounts. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.

 

The Company follows the ASC Topic 360, which requires that long-lived assets be reviewed annually for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the assets' carrying amounts may not be recoverable.

In performing the review for recoverability, if future undiscounted cash flows (excluding interest charges) from the use and ultimate disposition of the assets are less than their carrying values, an impairment loss represented by the difference between its fair value and carrying value, is recognized. When properties are classified as held for sale they are recorded at the lower of the carrying amount or the expected sales price less costs to sell.

Goodwill

 

Goodwill represents the excess purchase price over the estimated fair value of net assets acquired by the Company in business combinations. Business acquisitions are accounted for using the acquisition method whereby acquired assets and liabilities are recorded at fair value as of the date of acquisition with the excess of the acquisition amount over such fair value being recorded as goodwill and allocated to reporting units ("RU").  RUs are the smallest identifiable group of assets, liabilities and associated goodwill that generate cash inflows that are largely independent of the cash inflows from other assets or groups of assets.  Given how the Company is structured and managed, the Company has one RU.  Goodwill arises principally because of the following factors among other things: (1) the going concern value of the Company's capacity to sustain and grow revenues through securing additional contracts and customers,; (2) the undeserved market of consumers looking for financial transactional alternatives; (3) technological and mobile capabilities beyond acquired lines of business to capture buyer specific synergies arising upon a transaction and (4) the requirement to record a deferred tax liability for the difference between the assigned values and the tax bases of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination, if any.

 

Intangibles

 

The Company has applied the provisions of ASC topic 350 – Intangibles – goodwill and other, in accounting for its intangible assets. Intangible assets subject to amortization are amortized on a straight-line method on the basis over the useful life of the respective intangibles. The following useful lives are used in the calculation of amortization:

 

Trademark – 8 years

Customer base – 5 years

Intellectual property/Technology – 10 years

Impairment goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets and intangible assets with definite lives

 

The Company accounts for goodwill and intangible assets in accordance with ASC No. 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other ("ASC 350"). ASC 350 requires that goodwill and other intangibles with indefinite lives be tested for impairment annually or on an interim basis if events or circumstances indicate that the fair value of an asset has decreased below its carrying value. In addition, ASC 350 requires that goodwill be tested for impairment at the reporting unit level (operating segment or one level below an operating segment) on an annual basis and between annual tests when circumstances indicate that the recoverability of the carrying amount of goodwill may be in doubt. Application of the goodwill impairment test requires judgment, including the identification of reporting units; assigning assets and liabilities to reporting units, assigning goodwill to reporting units, and determining the fair value. Significant judgments required to estimate the fair value of reporting units include estimating future cash flows, determining appropriate discount rates and other assumptions. Changes in these estimates and assumptions or the occurrence of one or more confirming events in future periods could cause the actual results or outcomes to materially differ from such estimates and could also affect the determination of fair value and/or goodwill impairment at future reporting dates.

 

The Company assesses the carrying value of goodwill, indefinite-lived intangible assets and intangible assets with definite lives, such as Trademark, Technology platform, customer base and other intangible assets for potential impairment annually as of December 31, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate such assets might be impaired.

When assessing goodwill for impairment the Company elects to first perform a qualitative assessment for a reporting unit to determine if the quantitative impairment test is necessary. If we do not perform a qualitative assessment, or if the qualitative assessment indicates it is more likely than not that the fair value of the reporting units, is less than its carrying amount, the Company performs a quantitative test. The Company recognizes an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value; however, the loss recognized would not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. The Company estimates fair value using the income approach, to estimate the future undiscounted cash flows (excluding interest charges) from the use and ultimate disposition of the assets. 

 

Income taxes

 

Deferred tax is recognized using the asset and liability method, on temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for tax purposes. However, the deferred tax is not recognized if it arises from initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction other than a business combination that at the time of the transaction affects neither accounting nor taxable profit or loss. Deferred taxes determined using tax rates (and laws) that have been enacted by the reporting date and are expected to apply when the related deferred taxation asset is realized, or the deferred taxation liability is settled. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset if there is a legally enforceable right to offset current tax liabilities and assets, and they relate to income taxes levied by the same tax authority on the same taxable entity, or on different tax entities, but they intend to settle current tax liabilities and assets on a net basis or their tax assets and liabilities will be realized simultaneously.

 

A deferred tax asset is recognized to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profits will be available against which the temporary difference can be utilized. Deferred tax assets are reviewed at each reporting date and are reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that the related tax benefit will be realized.

 

Share-based payment expense

 

The Company follows the fair value method of accounting for stock awards granted to employees, directors, officers and consultants. Share-based awards to employees are measured at the fair value of the related share-based awards. Share-based payments to others are valued based on the related services rendered or goods received or if this cannot be reliably measured, on the fair value of the instruments issued. Issuances of shares are valued using the fair value of the shares at the time of grant; issuances of warrants and other share-based awards are valued using the Black-Scholes model with assumptions based on historical experience and future expectations. All issuances of share-based payments have been fully-vested, otherwise the Company recognizes such awards over the vesting period based on expectations of the number of awards expected to vest over that period on a straight-line basis.

 

Business combinations

 

A business combination is a transaction or other event in which control over one or more businesses is obtained. A business is an integrated set of activities and assets that is capable of being conducted and managed for the purpose of providing a return in the form of dividends, lower costs or other economic benefits. A business consists of inputs and processes applied to those inputs that have the ability to create outputs that provide a return to the Company and its shareholders. A business need not include all of the inputs and processes that were used by the acquiree to produce outputs if the business can be integrated with the inputs and processes of the Company to continue to produce outputs. The Company considers several factors to determine whether the set of activities and assets is a business.

 

Business acquisitions are accounted for using the acquisition method whereby acquired assets and liabilities are recorded at fair value as of the date of acquisition with the excess of the purchase consideration over such fair value being recorded as goodwill and allocated to reporting units (“RUs”). If the fair value of the net assets acquired exceeds the purchase consideration, the difference is recognized immediately as a gain in the consolidated statement of operations. Acquisition related costs are expensed during the period in which they are incurred, except for the cost of debt or equity instruments issued in relation to the acquisition which is included in the carrying amount of the related instrument. Certain fair values may be estimated at the acquisition date pending confirmation or completion of the valuation process. Where provisional values are used in accounting for a business combination, they are adjusted retrospectively in subsequent periods. However, the measurement period will not exceed one year from the acquisition date. If the assets acquired are not a business, the transaction is accounted for as an asset acquisition.

Leases

 

On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification Topic 842, “Leases” (“ASC 842”) to replace existing lease accounting guidance. This pronouncement is intended to provide enhanced transparency and comparability by requiring lessees to record right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities on the balance sheet for most leases. Expenses associated with leases will continue to be recognized in a manner similar to previous accounting guidance. The Company adopted ASC 842 utilizing the transition practical expedient added by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”), which eliminates the requirement that entities apply the new lease standard to the comparative periods presented in the year of adoption.

 

The Company is the lessee in a lease contract when the Company obtains the right to use the asset. Operating leases are included in the line items right-of-use asset, lease obligation, current, and lease obligation, long-term in the consolidated balance sheet. Right-of-use (“ROU”) asset represents the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease obligations represent the Company’s obligations to make lease payments arising from the lease, both of which are recognized based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the lease term at the commencement date. Leases with a lease term of 12 months or less at inception are not recorded on the consolidated balance sheet and are expensed on a straight-line basis over the lease term in our consolidated statement of income. The Company determines the lease term by agreement with lessor.

 

As our current operating lease of office space, at the commencement, has a term of less than 12 months, we elect not to apply the recognition requirements of ASC 842 to the short-term lease, instead lease payments are recognized in statement of operations on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

 

The areas where management has made significant judgments include, but are not limited to:

 

Accounting for acquisitions: The accounting for acquisitions requires judgement to determine if an acquisition meets the definition of a business combination under ASC 805.  Further, management is required to use judgement to determine the fair value of the consideration provided and the net assets and liabilities acquired.

 

Assessment of Impairment: The Company has certain assets for which a determination of an impairment, if any, requires significant judgement to determine if the carrying amount of any assets are impaired.  Management uses judgement in determining among other things, whether or not an indicator of impairment has occurred, future cash flows, time horizons, and likelihood of recoverability.  The assets where management has assessed the recoverability the carrying amount includes accounts receivable, equipment, intangibles and goodwill.

 

 

26 
 
 

 

Deferred taxes: The Company recognizes the deferred tax benefit related to deferred income tax assets to the extent recovery is probable.  Assessing the recoverability of deferred income tax assets requires management to make significant estimates of future taxable profit and the income tax rate at which the future tax assets will be realized.  To the extent that future cash flows, taxable profit and income tax rates differ significantly from estimates, the ability of the Company to realize deferred tax assets could be impacted.  In addition, future changes in tax laws could limit the ability of the Company to obtain tax deductions in future periods from deferred income tax assets.

 

Share-based payment expense: The calculation of share-based payment expense requires management to use significant judgment in determining the fair value of share-based payment expense. Additionally, the management is required to make certain assumptions in arriving at the fair value of share-based payment expense.

 

Derivative financial instruments: The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks.

 

The Company reviews the terms of equity instruments and other financing arrangements, if any, to determine whether there are embedded derivative instruments, including embedded conversion options that are required to be bifurcated and accounted for separately as a derivative financial instrument. Also, in connection with the issuance of financing instruments, the Company may issue freestanding options or warrants to employees and non-employees in connection with consulting or other services. These options or warrants may, depending on their terms, be accounted for as derivative instrument liabilities, rather than as equity.

 

Derivative financial instruments are initially measured at their fair value. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported as charges or credits to income. To the extent that the initial fair values of the freestanding and/or bifurcated derivative instrument liabilities exceed the total proceeds received an immediate charge to income is recognized in order to initially record the derivative instrument liabilities at their fair value.

 

The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is reassessed at the end of each reporting period. If reclassification is required, the fair value of the derivative instrument, as of the determination date, is reclassified. Any previous charges or credits to income for changes in the fair value of the derivative instrument are not reversed. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within twelve months of the balance sheet date.

 

NEWLY ADOPTED AND RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, which provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. The amendments apply only to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions that reference LIBOR or another reference rate expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform. The amendments are effective for all entities as of March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022. We are currently evaluating the impact this guidance may have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, which provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. The amendments apply only to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions that reference LIBOR or another reference rate expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform. The amendments are effective for all entities as of March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022. We are currently evaluating the impact this guidance may have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

In June 2018, the FASB issued an accounting pronouncement (FASB ASU 2018-07) to expand the scope of ASC Topic 718, Compensation - Stock Compensation, to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees. The pronouncement is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted this pronouncement and such adoption did not have a material impact on our financial position and/or results of operations.

 

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the accounting pronouncement issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09 (“ASU”), Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) to clarify existing guidance on revenue recognition. This guidance includes the required steps to achieve the core principle that a company should recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company adopted this pronouncement on a modified retrospective and such adoption did not have a material impact on our financial position and/or results of operations.

 

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the accounting pronouncement issued by the FASB to clarify how entities should present restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents in the statement of cash flows. This guidance requires entities to show changes in the total of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash in the combined statement of cash flows. This guidance was adopted on a retrospective basis, and such adoption did not have a material impact on combined financial position and/or results of operations. 

 

On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification Topic 842, “Leases” (“ASC 842”) to replace existing lease accounting guidance. This pronouncement is intended to provide enhanced transparency and comparability by requiring lessees to record right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities on the balance sheet for most leases. Expenses associated with leases will continue to be recognized in a manner similar to previous accounting guidance. The Company adopted ASC 842 utilizing the transition practical expedient added by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”), which eliminates the requirement that entities apply the new lease standard to the comparative periods presented in the year of adoption. The Company is the lessee in a lease contract when the Company obtains the right to use the asset. Operating leases are included in the line items right-of-use asset, lease obligation, current, and lease obligation, long-term in the consolidated balance sheet. Right-of-use (“ROU”) asset represents the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease obligations represent the Company’s obligations to make lease payments arising from the lease, both of which are recognized based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the lease term at the commencement date. Leases with a lease term of 12 months or less at inception are not recorded on the consolidated balance sheet and are expensed on a straight-line basis over the lease term in our consolidated statement of income. The Company determines the lease term by agreement with lessor. As our current operating lease of office space, at the commencement, has a term of less than 12 months, we elect not to apply the recognition requirements of ASC 842 to the short-term lease, instead lease payments are recognized in statement of operations on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

ITEM 7A.  Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

The follow discussion about our market risk disclosures involves forward-looking statements. Actual results could differ from those projected in the forward-looking statements. We are exposed to market risk related to changes in interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates. We do not use derivative financial instruments for speculative or trading purposes.

 

Financial instruments and risk factors

  

Management forecasts cash flows for its current and subsequent fiscal years to predict future financing requirements.  Future requirements may be met through a combination of credit and access to capital markets.  The Company's cash requirements are dependent on the level of operating activity, a large portion of which is discretionary.  Should management decide to increase its operating activity, more funds than what is currently in place would be required.  It is not possible to predict whether financing efforts will be successful or sufficient in the future.   At December 31, 2020, the Company had $64,412 in cash and cash equivalents (December 31, 2019 - $21,477).

 

 

 

28 
 
 

The following are the maturities, excluding interest payments, reflecting undiscounted future cash disbursements of the Company's financial liabilities based on the period year ended December 31, 2020.

 

    2021   2022 and after
         
Accounts payable and accrued liabilities   $ 1,843,780     $ —    
Notes payable     530,896          
Due to related party corporations     65,020          
Long-term debt     353,498       762,147  
    $ 2,793,194     $ 762,147  

 

 

 Currency risk: The Company's expenditures are incurred in Canadian and US dollars.  The results of the Company's operations are subject to currency translation risk.  The Company mitigates foreign exchange risk through forecasting its foreign currency denominated expenditures and maintaining an appropriate balance of cash in each currency to meet the expenditures.  As the Company's reporting currency is the US dollar, fluctuations in US dollar will affect the results of the Company. 

 

Credit risk: Credit risk is the risk of loss associated with a counterparty's inability to fulfill its payment obligations. As at December 31, 2020, the Company's credit risk is primarily attributable to cash and cash equivalents, and accounts receivable. At December 31, 2020, the Company's cash and cash equivalents were held with reputable Canadian chartered banks.  At December 31, 2020, the Company had an allowance for doubtful accounts of $NIL (December 31, 2019 - $NIL) as a result of a review of collectability of the amount outstanding and the duration of time it was outstanding.

 

Interest rate risk: Interest rate risk is the risk borne by an interest-bearing asset or liability as a result of fluctuations in interest rates.  Financial assets and financial liabilities with variable interest rates expose the Company to cash flow interest rate risk.  The Company's does not have significant interest rate risk as the promissory note have been settled during the year.

 

Fair values:  The carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheet for cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivables, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate fair value because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization.

On June 19, 2019, our board of directors approved the engagement of SRCO Professional Corporation ("SRCO"), as the Company's new independent registered public accounting firm.

 

During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2014 and 2015, and the subsequent interim period prior to the engagement of MNP, the Company has not consulted MNP regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to any specified transaction, either completed or proposed; (ii) the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's financial statements, and either a written report was provided to the registrant or oral advice was provided that the new accountant concluded was an important factor considered by the registrant in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (iii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(o)(1)(iv)) or a reportable event (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v)).

ITEM 9A Controls and Procedures

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining a system of disclosure controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports it files or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (Exchange Act), is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC. Our disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports it files or submitted under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Because of inherent limitations, disclosure controls and procedures, as well as internal control over financial reporting, may not prevent or detect all inaccurate statements or omissions.

 

Our management, with the supervision and participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"). Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2020, were effective such that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure. A controls system cannot provide absolute assurance, however, that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.

 

 Inherent Limitations Over Internal Controls

 

Our internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Our internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that:

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that our internal controls will prevent or detect all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed 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 internal controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. Also, any evaluation of the effectiveness of controls in future periods are subject to the risk that those internal controls may become inadequate because of changes in business conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Management's Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act). Management conducted an assessment of the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting based on the criteria set forth in Internal Control – Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (1992 framework). Based on the Company's assessment, management has concluded that its internal control over financial reporting was ineffective as of December 31, 2020, to provide e reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP.  

 

We have assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2020, the period covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K, as discussed above. In making this assessment, we used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control—Integrated Framework. Based upon this evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that our internal control over financial reporting as of the end of December 31, 2020, were ineffective due to the following: lack of segregation of duties, due to limited administrative and financial personnel and related resources.

 

Changes In Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

During the year ended December 31, 2020, there were no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to have a materially affect, on our internal control over financial reporting. 

 

Item 9B. Other Information

Compliance with Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, requires our executive officers, directors and beneficial owner of more than 10% of a registered class of our equity securities to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission statements of ownership and changes in ownership. The same persons are required to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file. We believe that, during fiscal 2020, all of our executive officers, directors and beneficial owner of more than 10% of a registered class of our equity securities complied with the applicable filing requirements.

Compensation Discussion and Analysis

 

Overview

 

The Company's executive compensation program is generally designed to align the interests of executives with the interests of shareholders and to reward executives for achieving the Company's objectives. The executive compensation program is also designed to attract and retain the services of qualified executives. 

 

The Board of Directors shall determine all compensation packages.

 

Executive compensation generally consists of base salary or fees, bonuses and long-term incentive equity compensation such as stock grants or additional options to purchase shares of the Company's common stock as well as various health and welfare benefits. The Board has determined that both the base salary or fees and long-term incentive equity compensation should be the principal component of executive compensation. The Board has not adopted a formal bonus plan, and all bonuses are discretionary.

 

Elements of Compensation

 

The executive compensation for the Named Executive Officers) for the period ended December 31, 2019, primarily consisted of base salary or fees, long term incentive equity compensation, and other compensation and benefit programs generally available to other employees,

 

Base Salary. The Board establishes base salaries or fees for the Company's Named Executive Officers based on the scope of their responsibilities, taking into account competitive market compensation paid by other companies in the Company's peer group for similar positions. Generally, the Board believes that executive base salaries or fees should be in-line with similar responsibilities at comparable companies in line with our compensation philosophy.

 

Base salaries are reviewed annually, and may be adjusted to realign salaries with market levels after taking into account individual responsibilities, performance and experience.

 

Bonuses. Bonuses are intended to compensate the Named Executive Officers for achieving the Company's financial performance and other objectives established by the Board each year. The Board currently does not adopt a formal bonus plan and all bonuses are discretionary.

 

Long-Term Incentive Equity Compensation. The Board believes that stock-based awards promote the long-term growth and profitability of the Company by providing executive officers with incentives to improve shareholder value and contribute to the success of the Company and by enabling the Company to attract, retain and reward the best available persons for executive officer positions. The Named Executive Officers were eligible to receive certain number of shares of common stock of the Company. The Company cannot currently determine the number or type of additional awards that may be granted to eligible participants under the long-term incentive equity compensation plan in the future. Such determination will be made from time to time by the Board.

 

Change-In-Control and Termination Arrangements. The Company is in the process of formalizing Change-In-Control and Termination Arrangements that would be consistent with all officers of the Company.

(7) As required by SEC rules, amounts in the column "Stock Awards" present the aggregate grant date fair value of awards made each year computed in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification™ 718 Compensation—Stock Compensation ("FASB ASC 718"). The grant date fair value of each of the executives' award is measured based on the closing price of our common stock on the date of grant. These amounts do not reflect whether the recipient has actually realized or will realize a financial benefit from the awards. Under generally accepted accounting principles, compensation expense with respect to stock awards granted to our employees, executives and directors is generally recognized over the requisite services period. The SEC's disclosure rules previously required that we present stock award information based on the amount recognized during the corresponding year for financial statement reporting purposes with respect to these awards. However, the recent changes in the SEC's disclosure rules require that we now present stock award amounts using the grant date fair value of the awards granted during the corresponding year.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of Zoompass Holdings, Inc.:

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Zoompass Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2020 and 2019, and the related consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss, stockholders’ deficiency, and cash flows for each of the years in the two year-period ended December 31, 2020, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the consolidated financial statements). In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as at December 31, 2020 and 2019, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the two year-period ended December 31, 2020, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (US GAAP).

Material Uncertainty Related to Going Concern

 

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

Basis for Opinion

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

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

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated 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 consolidated financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Critical Audit Matters

 

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

Business Combination

Description of the Critical Audit Matter

 

Auditing business combination was complex and highly judgmental due to the justification of business and significant estimation required to determine the fair value of assets acquired / liabilities assumed, the purchase consideration conveyed and the resulting goodwill recognized, and the significant judgment by management when estimating the fair value of the acquisition related contingent consideration liability.

How the Critical Audit Matter Was Addressed in the Audit

To audit the accounting of the business combination transactions, we evaluated the justification of business acquisition from management to ensure the compliance with U.S. GAAP; and we reviewed the fair value calculation of assets acquired / liabilities assumed, the purchase consideration conveyed and the resulting goodwill recognized to agreements and valuation expert’s report that included methodology and assumptions used and assessed those inputs to be reasonable, testing management’s process for determining the fair value of the acquisition related contingent consideration liability, and testing the completeness and accuracy of the underlying data used in the fair value calculation.

Impairment of Intangible Assets and Goodwill

Description of the Critical Audit Matter

As discussed in Note 5 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company recorded impairment charges on goodwill and intangible assets during the year ended December 31, 2020.

Auditing management's goodwill and intangible assets impairment test was complex and highly judgmental due to the significant estimation required to determine the fair value of the goodwill and intangible assets and underlying reporting unit. In particular, the fair value estimate was sensitive to significant assumptions, such as the Company’s financial forecast, discount rate, and operating costs, which are impacted by expectations about future market and economic conditions.

How the Critical Audit Matter Was Addressed in the Audit

To test the estimated fair value of the Company’s goodwill and intangible assets and underlying reporting unit, we performed audit procedures that included, among other things, assessing methodologies and testing the significant assumptions discussed above and the underlying data used by the Company in its analysis. In addition, we assessed the current financial forecast in light of management’s current plans, and we assessed the historical basis of management’s estimates based on its current operating results that would result from changes in the assumptions.

Deemed disposition of a partially owned subsidiary

Description of the Critical Audit Matter

As discussed in Note 14 to the consolidated financial statements, effective September 30, 2020, the Company terminated the acquisition agreement as management lost control over the operations of MSS. Pursuant to the deemed disposition, the Company deconsolidated the subsidiary as of that date.

Auditing disposition of a partially owned subsidiary was complex due to the significant estimation of fair value of assets and liabilities disposed, the accrued liabilities resulted from disposition, justification of loss of control and consideration of the disposition.

How the Critical Audit Matter Was Addressed in the Audit

To audit the accounting of the disposition of partially owned subsidiary, we evaluated management’s assessment of loss of control, accounting for disposition in accordance with U.S. GAAP; we verified the fair value of assets and liabilities disposed, the consideration of disposition, the resulting impact on income statement, the accrued liabilities resulting from the disposition, and the cancellation of equity instruments and the adjusted contingent consideration liability.

NOTE 1 — NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND GOING CONCERN

Zoompass Holdings, Inc. formerly known as UVIC. Inc. ("Zoompass Holdings" or the "Company") was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on August 21, 2013. The Company is a software fintech company with focus on leading edge technologies and software as a service. The Company is actively seeking opportunities to acquire software companies with existing revenue streams.

In February 2017, the Company completed a 3.5-1 forward split, which was approved by shareholders of record on September 7, 2016. All share figures have been retroactively stated to reflect the stock split approved by the shareholders, unless otherwise indicated.

Effective March 6, 2018, the Company’s Canadian operating subsidiary, Zoompass, Inc., entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") for the sale of its Prepaid Card Business ("Prepaid Business") to Fintech Holdings North America Inc., or its designee. The aggregate purchase price of the Prepaid Business was C$400,000 (US$314,160). The transaction was completed on March 26, 2018. 

On October 16, 2018, the Company purchased certain business assets that represents a business from Virtublock Global Corp. (“Virtublock”, “VGC”) in return the Company issued 44,911,724 shares to Virtublock and pursuant to the issuance of shares Virtublock ended up owning 45% of total outstanding common shares of the Company.

On February 27, 2020, the Company cancelled 44,911,724 shares of the common stock which were issued in connection with the asset purchase agreement dated October 17, 2018 with Virtublock (note 3). Pursuant to a General Release agreement dated November 29, 2019, the asset purchase agreement dated October 17, 2018 with Virtublock was deemed cancelled and each party acknowledged and agreed that no party has or shall have any claim with respect to intellectual property, software or other assets owned by any other party and that no agreements exist or remain unsatisfied with respect to the transfer of any asset from a releasing party to any other party, and Virtublock assigned and tendered the 44,911,724 shares of common stock of the Company to the Company for cancellation. As the share cancellation occurred on February 27, 2020, the accounting recognition of this transaction, consisting of a transfer of $4,492 from common stock to additional paid-in capital and related reduction in the number of common shares outstanding, were reflected in the consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020. 

On May 31, 2020, the Company closed a Share Exchange Agreement (the "Share Exchange Agreement") by and among the Company, Blockgration Global Corp., an Ontario corporation, and its subsidiaries, (Blockline Solutions Private Ltd, Msewa Software Solutions, Zuum Global Services Inc.) ("BGC"), and the shareholders of BGC (the "BGC Shareholders"). This acquisition gives the Company controlling interest in BGC’s subsidiaries in Canada and India which are engaged in the business of digital wallet deployments, prepaid card platform, blockchain and mobile apps deployment.

On September 30, 2020, the Company cancelled 9,330,000 shares of the common stock and 14,845,000 share purchase warrants which were allocated in connection with the acquisition of MSS, that was a 70% subsidiary of BGC on May 31, 2020. See (note 3, 10 and 14).

The Company has incurred recurring losses from operations and as of December 31, 2020, and December 31, 2019, and had net working capital deficiency and an accumulated deficit. The Company’s continued existence is dependent upon its ability to continue to execute its operating plan and to obtain additional debt or equity financing. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. There can be no assurance that the necessary debt or equity financing will be available or will be available on terms acceptable to the Company, in which case the Company may be unable to meet its obligations. Should the Company be unable to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business, the net realizable value of its assets may be materially less than the amounts recorded in the consolidated financial statements.

There is no certainty that the Company will be successful in generating sufficient cash flow from operations or achieving and maintaining profitable operations in the future to enable it to meet its obligations as they come due and consequently continue as a going concern. The Company will require additional financing to fund its operations and it is currently working on securing this funding through corporate collaborations, public or private equity offerings or debt financings. Subsequent to year-end the Company raised approximately $400,000 in additional financing. See (note 16) Sale of additional equity securities by the Company would result in the dilution of the interests of existing shareholders. There can be no assurance that financing will be available when required.

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the basis that the Company will continue as a going concern, which presumes that it will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business as they come due. These consolidated financial statements do not reflect the adjustments to the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the reported expenses and consolidated balance sheets classifications that would be necessary if the Company were unable to realize its assets and settle its liabilities as a going concern in the normal course of operations. Such adjustments could be material.

In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) emerged. While initially the outbreak was largely concentrated in China and caused significant disruptions to its economy, it has now spread to several other countries and infections have been reported globally.

During 2020, as a result of COVID-19 infections having been reported throughout the United States, Canada, India and countries in Europe, certain national, provincial, state and local governmental issued proclamations and/or directives aimed at minimizing the spread of COVID-19. Due to the disruption of the COVID-19 crisis, the Company’s business activities might be subject to certain level of adverse impact. To the date of the issuance of these consolidated financial statements, the Company is still assessing the impact on its business, results of operations, financial position and cash flows, which will be accounted for when the reliable estimates will become available.

Basis of presentation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“US GAAP”).

The consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, which, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present a fair statement of the results for the year.

 Basis of consolidation:

 

The consolidated financial statements comprise the accounts of Zoompass Holdings Inc., the legal parent company, and its subsidiaries. The accounts of the subsidiaries are prepared for the same reporting period as the parent entity, using consistent accounting policies. All significant inter-company balances and transactions, unrealized gains or losses on transactions between the entities have been eliminated upon consolidation.

Subsidiaries are all entities (including special purpose entities) over which the Company, either directly or indirectly, has the power to govern the financial and operating policies generally accompanying a shareholding of more than one half of the voting rights. Where the group does not directly hold more than one half of the voting rights, significant judgment is used to determine whether control exists. These significant judgments include assessing whether the group can control the operating policies through the group's ability to appoint most directors to the board. The existence and effect of potential voting rights that are currently exercisable or convertible are considered when assessing whether the group controls another entity. Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date on which control is transferred to the group until the date on which control ceases.

NOTE 2 — SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Translation of foreign currencies

The functional currency of the Company, PM and ZTI is the US dollar. The Company has determined that the functional currency of ZM, BGC and ZMG is the Canadian dollar (references to which are denoted "C$"), for BSP and MSS is the Indian Rupees and for VO is the Euro. The reporting currency of the Company is US Dollar.

Transactions in currencies other than the functional currency are recorded at the rates of the exchange prevailing on dates of transactions. At each balance sheet reporting date, monetary assets and liabilities that are denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the rates prevailing at each reporting date. Non-monetary items that are measured in terms of historical cost in a foreign currency are translated at the exchange rate at the historical date of the transaction. The impact from the translation of foreign currency denominated items is reflected in the statement of operations and comprehensive loss.

Translation of functional currencies to reporting currencies for assets and liabilities is done using the exchange rates at each balance sheet date; revenue and expenses are translated at average rates prevailing during the reporting period or at the date of the transaction; shareholders' equity is translated at historical rates. Adjustments resulting from translating the consolidated financial statements into the US Dollar are recorded as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income in the statement of changes in stockholders’ deficiency.

Revenue recognition

 

The Company's revenue recognition policy follows ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which provides guidance on the recognition, presentation and disclosure of revenue from contracts with customers in consolidated financial statements.

 

Revenue is measured based on the consideration specified in a contract with a customer. Once the Company determines a contract's performance obligations and the transaction price, including an estimate of any variable consideration, the Company allocates the transaction price to each performance obligation in the contract using a stand-alone selling price. The Company recognizes revenue when it satisfies a performance obligation by transferring control of a product or service to a customer. Revenue is recognized net of any taxes collected from customers, which are subsequently remitted to governmental authorities.

 

Nature of performance obligations

 

At contract inception, the Company assesses the services promised in the contract with a customer and identifies a performance obligation for each promise to transfer to the customer a service (or bundle of services) that is distinct. To identify the performance obligations, the Company considers all the services promised in the contract regardless of whether they are explicitly stated or implied.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Expressed in US dollars)

 

 

The following is a description of the Company's principal revenue generating activities.

 

Revenue is principally derived from time basis billing for IT professional services provided to customers. Professional services in these contracts are primarily considered a single performance obligation. Revenue for these contracts is recognized over time for the amount which the Company has right to consideration. The Company also derived revenue from enabling various payment transactions which is recognized on a fixed fees per transaction basis at a point in time as services are rendered.

 

Deferred revenue is recognized for transactions arising during the current reporting period when it receives consideration from a customer before achieving certain criteria that must be met for revenue to be recognized. Deferred revenue is a liability as of the reporting period related to revenue producing activity for which revenue has not yet been recognized.

 Leases

 

On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification Topic 842, “Leases” (“ASC 842”) to replace existing lease accounting guidance. This pronouncement is intended to provide enhanced transparency and comparability by requiring lessees to record right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities on the balance sheet for most leases. Expenses associated with leases will continue to be recognized in a manner like previous accounting guidance. The Company adopted ASC 842 utilizing the transition practical expedient added by the FASB, which eliminates the requirement that entities apply the new lease standard to the comparative periods presented in the year of adoption.

The Company is the lessee in a lease contract when the Company obtains the right to use the asset. Leases are included in the line items right-of-use asset, lease obligation, current, and lease obligation, long-term in the consolidated balance sheet. Right-of-use (“ROU”) asset represents the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease obligations represent the Company’s obligations to make lease payments arising from the lease, both of which are recognized based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the lease term at the commencement date. Leases with a lease term of 12 months or less at inception are not recorded on the consolidated balance sheet and are expensed on a straight-line basis over the lease term in the consolidated statement of Operation. The Company determines the lease term by agreement with lessor.

As the Company’s current operating lease of office space on January 1, 2019 had a term of less than 12 months, the Company elected not to apply the recognition requirements of ASC 842 to the short-term lease, instead lease payments were recognized in statement of operations on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

Goodwill

 

Goodwill represents the excess purchase price over the estimated fair value of net assets acquired by the Company in business combinations. Business acquisitions are accounted for using the acquisition method whereby acquired assets and liabilities are recorded at fair value as of the date of acquisition with the excess of the acquisition amount over such fair value being recorded as goodwill and allocated to reporting units ("RU"). RUs are the smallest identifiable group of assets, liabilities and associated goodwill that generate cash inflows that are largely independent of the cash inflows from other assets or groups of assets. Given how the Company is structured and managed, the Company has one RU. Goodwill arises principally because of the following factors among other things: (1) the going concern value of the Company's capacity to sustain and grow revenues through securing additional contracts and customers,; (2) the undeserved market of consumers looking for financial transactional alternatives; (3) technological and mobile capabilities beyond acquired lines of business to capture buyer specific synergies arising upon a transaction and (4) the requirement to record a deferred tax liability for the difference between the assigned values and the tax bases of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination, if any.

Business combinations

 

A business combination is a transaction or other event in which control over one or more businesses is obtained. A business is an integrated set of activities and assets that is capable of being conducted and managed for the purpose of providing a return in the form of dividends, lower costs or other economic benefits. A business consists

 

F- 10

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Expressed in US dollars)

 

 

 

of inputs and processes applied to those inputs that can create outputs that provide a return to the Company and its shareholders. A business need not include all the inputs and processes that were used by the acquiree to produce outputs if the business can be integrated with the inputs and processes of the Company to continue to produce outputs. The Company considers several factors to determine whether the set of activities and assets is a business.

Business acquisitions are accounted for using the acquisition method whereby acquired assets and liabilities are recorded at fair value as of the date of acquisition with the excess of the purchase consideration over such fair value being recorded as goodwill and allocated to RUs. If the fair value of the net assets acquired exceeds the purchase consideration, the difference is recognized immediately as a gain in the consolidated statement of operations. Acquisition related costs are expensed during the period in which they are incurred, except for the cost of debt or equity instruments issued in relation to the acquisition which is included in the carrying amount of the related instrument. Certain fair values may be estimated at the acquisition date pending confirmation or completion of the valuation process. Where provisional values are used in accounting for a business combination, they are adjusted retrospectively in subsequent periods. However, the measurement period will not exceed one year from the acquisition date. If the assets acquired are not a business, the transaction is accounted for as an asset acquisition.

Cash and cash equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents include demand deposits held with banks and highly liquid investments with original maturities of ninety days or less at acquisition date. For purposes of reporting cash flows, the Company considers all cash accounts that are not subject to withdrawal restrictions or penalties to be cash and cash equivalents. Cash in trust and customer deposits are amounts held by the Company at various financial institutions for settlement of clients' funds payable.

Equipment

 

Equipment is stated at historic cost. The Company has the following sub-categories of equipment with useful lives and depreciation methods as follows:

Office equipment and furniture – 20% declining balance per year

 

The cost of assets sold, retired, or otherwise disposed of and the related accumulated depreciation are eliminated from the accounts. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.

The Company follows the ASC Topic 360, which requires that long-lived assets be reviewed annually for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the assets' carrying amounts may not be recoverable.

In performing the review for recoverability, if future undiscounted cash flows (excluding interest charges) from the use and ultimate disposition of the assets are less than their carrying values, an impairment loss represented by the difference between its fair value and carrying value, is recognized. When properties are classified as held for sale, they are recorded at the lower of the carrying amount or the expected sales price less costs to sell.

Intangibles

 

The Company has applied the provisions of ASC topic 350 – Intangibles – goodwill and other, in accounting for its intangible assets. Intangible assets subject to amortization are amortized on a straight-line method on the basis over the useful life of the respective intangibles. The following useful lives are used in the calculation of amortization:

ZOOMPASS HOLDINGS, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Expressed in US dollars)

 

 

Trademark – 8 years

Customer base – 5 years

Intellectual property/Technology – 10 years

Impairment goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets and intangible assets with definite lives

 

The Company accounts for goodwill and intangible assets in accordance with ASC No. 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other ("ASC 350"). ASC 350 requires that goodwill and other intangibles with indefinite lives be tested for impairment annually or on an interim basis if events or circumstances indicate that the fair value of an asset has decreased below its carrying value. In addition, ASC 350 requires that goodwill be tested for impairment at the reporting unit level (operating segment or one level below an operating segment) on an annual basis and between annual tests when circumstances indicate that the recoverability of the carrying amount of goodwill may be in doubt. Application of the goodwill impairment test requires judgment, including the identification of reporting units; assigning assets and liabilities to reporting units, assigning goodwill to reporting units, and determining the fair value. Significant judgments required to estimate the fair value of reporting units include estimating future cash flows, determining appropriate discount rates and other assumptions. Changes in these estimates and assumptions or the occurrence of one or more confirming events in future periods could cause the actual results or outcomes to materially differ from such estimates and could also affect the determination of fair value and/or goodwill impairment at future reporting dates.

 

The Company assesses the carrying value of goodwill, indefinite-lived intangible assets and intangible assets with definite lives, such as Trademark, Intellectual property/Technology, and customer base for potential impairment annually as of December 31, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate such assets might be impaired.

 

When assessing goodwill for impairment the Company elects to first perform a qualitative assessment for a reporting unit to determine if the quantitative impairment test is necessary. If we do not perform a qualitative assessment, or if the qualitative assessment indicates it is more likely than not that the fair value of the reporting units, is less than its carrying amount, the Company performs a quantitative test. The Company recognizes an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value; however, the loss recognized would not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. The Company estimates fair value using the income approach, to estimate the future undiscounted cash flows (excluding interest charges) from the use and ultimate disposition of the assets.

 

Income taxes

 

Deferred tax is recognized using the asset and liability method, on temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for tax purposes. However, the deferred tax is not recognized if it arises from initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction other than a business combination that at the time of the transaction affects neither accounting nor taxable profit or loss. Deferred taxes determined using tax rates (and laws) that have been enacted by the reporting date and are expected to apply when the related deferred taxation asset is realized, or the deferred taxation liability is settled. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset if there is a legally enforceable right to offset current tax liabilities and assets, and they relate to income taxes levied by the same tax authority on the same taxable entity, or on different tax entities, but they intend to settle current tax liabilities and assets on a net basis or their tax assets and liabilities will be realized simultaneously.

 

A deferred tax asset is recognized to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profits will be available against which the temporary difference can be utilized. Deferred tax assets are reviewed at each reporting date and are reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that the related tax benefit will be realized.

Share-based payment expense

 

The Company follows the fair value method of accounting for stock awards granted to employees, directors, officers and consultants. Share-based awards to employees are measured at the fair value of the related share-based awards. Share-based payments to others are valued based on the related services rendered or goods received or if this cannot be reliably measured, on the fair value of the instruments issued. Issuances of shares are valued using the fair value of the shares at the time of grant; issuances of warrants and other share-based awards are valued using the Black-Scholes model with assumptions based on historical experience and future expectations. All issuances of share-based payments have been fully-vested, otherwise the Company recognizes such awards over the vesting period based on expectations of the number of awards expected to vest over that period on a straight- line basis.

 

Basic and diluted loss per share

 

Basic and diluted loss per share has been determined by dividing the net loss available to shareholders for the applicable period by the basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding, respectively. The diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding is calculated as if all dilutive options had been exercised or vested at the later of the beginning of the reporting period or date of grant, using the treasury stock method.

 

Loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common shares outstanding during the period. Common share equivalents, options and warrants are excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share when their effect as anti-dilutive.

 

Segment reporting

 

ASC 280-10, "Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information", establishes standards for the way that public business enterprises report information about operating segments in the Company's consolidated financial statements. Operating segments are components of an enterprise about which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. Significantly all of the assets of the Company are located in, all revenues are currently earned in India and the Company’s research, development and strategical planning operations are carried out and served as an integral part of the Company’s business. The Company’s reportable segments and operating segments include rendering of professional services.

 

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

 

The areas where management has made significant judgments include, but are not limited to:

 

Accounting for acquisitions and disposal: The accounting for acquisitions requires judgement to determine if an acquisition meets the definition of a business combination under ASC 805. Further, management is required to use judgement to determine the fair value of the consideration provided and the net assets and liabilities acquired while in case of disposal management is required to use judgement to determine if the Company continues to exercise control over a subsidiary or is it a deemed disposal.

 

Assessment of Impairment: The Company has certain assets for which a determination of an impairment, if any, requires significant judgement to determine if the carrying amount of any assets are impaired. Management uses judgement in determining among other things, whether or not an indicator of impairment has occurred, future cash flows, time horizons, and likelihood of recoverability. The assets where management has assessed the recoverability the carrying amount includes accounts receivable, equipment, intangibles and goodwill.

Deferred taxes: The Company recognizes the deferred tax benefit related to deferred income tax assets to the extent recovery is probable. Assessing the recoverability of deferred income tax assets requires management to make significant estimates of future taxable profit and the income tax rate at which the future tax assets will be realized. To the extent that future cash flows, taxable profit and income tax rates differ significantly from estimates, the ability of the Company to realize deferred tax assets could be impacted. In addition, future changes in tax laws could limit the ability of the Company to obtain tax deductions in future periods from deferred income tax assets.

 

Share-based payment expense: The calculation of share-based payment expense requires management to use significant judgment in determining the fair value of share-based payment expense. Additionally, the management is required to make certain assumptions in arriving at the fair value of share-based payment expense.

 

RECENTLY ISSUED AND NEWLY ADOPTED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, which provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying GAAP to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. The amendments apply only to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions that reference LIBOR or another reference rate expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform. The amendments are effective for all entities as of March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this guidance may have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-13, “Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326) - Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments.” This pronouncement, along with subsequent ASUs issued to clarify provisions of ASU 2016-13, changes the impairment model for most financial assets and will require the use of an “expected loss” model for instruments measured at amortized cost. Under this model, entities will be required to estimate the lifetime expected credit loss (current expected credit loss – CECL) on such instruments and record an allowance to offset the amortized cost basis of the financial asset, resulting in a net presentation of the amount expected to be collected on the financial asset. In developing the estimate for lifetime expected credit loss, entities must incorporate historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. This pronouncement is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. On November 15, 2019, FASB issued ASU No. 2019-10 and finalized various effective date delays for private companies, not-for-profit organizations, and smaller reporting companies applying the CECL, and the effective date of CECL implementation date has been delayed to January 2023. As the new CECL model requires changes to the Company's process of estimating expected credit losses on trade receivables, the Company is in a process to identify and update existing internal controls and procedures to ensure compliance with the new guidance once it becomes effective.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, “Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement,” which removes, modifies and adds certain disclosure requirements in ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement. This ASU is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019. Certain amendments must be applied prospectively while others are to be applied on a retrospective basis to all periods presented. The Company adopted ASU 2018-13 in 2020 and has updated disclosures in this report. See Note 16 for additional information.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, “Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes,” which will simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in income tax accounting and improve consistent application of and simplify GAAP for other areas of income tax accounting by clarifying and amending existing guidance. The new guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company evaluated the impact ASU

2019-12 will have on its consolidated financial statements and does not expect a material impact upon adoption in

2021.

 

On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASC 842, “Leases” (“ASC 842”) to replace existing lease accounting guidance. This pronouncement is intended to provide enhanced transparency and comparability by requiring lessees to record right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities on the balance sheet for most leases. Expenses associated with leases will continue to be recognized in a manner like previous accounting guidance. The Company adopted ASC 842 utilizing the transition practical expedient added by the FASB, which eliminates the requirement that entities apply the new lease standard to the comparative periods presented in the year of adoption. The Company is the lessee in a lease contract when the Company obtains the right to use the asset. Operating leases are included in the line items right-of-use asset, lease obligation, current, and lease obligation, long-term in the consolidated balance sheet. Right-of-use (“ROU”) asset represents the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease obligations represent the Company’s obligations to make lease payments arising from the lease, both of which are recognized based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the lease term at the commencement date. Leases with a lease term of 12 months or less at inception are not recorded on the consolidated balance sheet and are expensed on a straight-line basis over the lease term in our consolidated statement of income. The Company determines the lease term by agreement with lessor. As our current operating lease of office space, at the commencement, has a term of less than 12 months, the Company elects not to apply the recognition requirements of ASC 842 to the short-term lease, instead lease payments are recognized in statement of operations on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

NOTE 3 – ACQUISITIONS OF BUSINESS AND ACQUISITION OF ASSET

 

Acquisition of Virtublock Global Corp. (VGC):

 

On October 16, 2018, the Company entered into an agreement with VGC, a corporation incorporated in Ontario Canada, to acquire assets and intellectual property of VGC. Based on an examination of the net assets acquired, the acquisition of the net assets was determined to be a business as defined under ASC 805.

 

Pursuant to the agreement, the Company issued 44,911,724 shares of its common stock to VGC as purchase consideration. The fair value of the shares issued was determined to be $3,458,203 based on the market value of the common stock as the date of issuance. The following table sets forth the allocation of the purchase consideration to the fair value of the net assets acquired. The acquired goodwill is primarily related to the value attributed to a company that was expected to experience accelerated growth.

 

Management tested goodwill and intangibles for impairment and determined them to be impaired. The main cause of the impairment was Company’s inability to secure the required financing and customer contracts in order to operationalize the new acquisition of VGC. As a result, the carrying amounts of intangibles and goodwill could not be supported.

 

Impairment of goodwill and intangible assets:

 

Management used the income approach to estimate the value of the Company’s intangible assets based on projections (adjusted for multiple scenarios and weighted probabilities) of future cash flows.

 

Impairment regarding goodwill

 

The fair value of the business unit based on the discounted cash flow analysis and net asset valuations of the reporting unit do not exceed the carrying amount, therefore goodwill was considered impaired.

Impairment regarding intangibles

 

The undiscounted (pre-tax) cash flows of the reporting unit using projections do not exceed its’s carrying value, and therefore intangibles were considered impaired.

On February 27, 2020, the Company terminated the agreement with Virtublock and cancelled 44,911,724 shares of the common stock which were issued in connection with the asset purchase agreement. Pursuant to a General Release agreement, each party acknowledged and agreed that no party has or shall have any claim with respect to intellectual property, software or other assets owned by any other party and that no agreements exist or remain unsatisfied with respect to the transfer of any asset from a releasing party to any other party.

 

Acquisition of Blockgration Global Corp. (BGC):

 

On May 31, 2020, the Company closed a share exchange agreement with BGC and its subsidiaries, wherein the Company acquired all of the outstanding shares of common stock of BGC, a company incorporated in Ontario, Canada, that is in the business of rendering IT professional services, for an aggregate purchase price of $9,000,000. The consideration was to be paid by issue of common shares and share purchase warrants in the Company as follows:

 

i) 41,313,430 newly issued common shares in the Company at market price of $0.30 per share
ii) 56,186,560 share purchase warrants at an exercise price of $0.25, valid for 3 years

 

Subsequent to the year-end the Company decided to cancel the both the 2020 and 2021 bonus shares and warrants. Due to the publicly traded nature of the Company’s shares, the equity issuance of the shares was considered to be a more reliable measurement of fair market value of the transaction compared to having a separate valuation of the net assets.

 

Further, the Company was also to issue bonus shares and share purchase warrants on a pro rata basis after the end of each applicable fiscal year, upon achievement of certain operational milestones within a defined time period.

 

a) 2020 Bonus shares – 5,000,000 shares and 5,000,000 warrants
b) 2021 Bonus shares – 5,000,000 shares and 5,000,000 warrants

On July 15, 2020, the Company entered into certain Intellectual Property Rights Purchase and Transfer Agreement with Moxie Holdings Private Ltd. (Moxies) an Indian corporation for:

 

(i) cash consideration of $1,200,000 to be paid in installments,

(iii)

warrants to purchase two million (2,000,000) shares of common stock at an exercise price of $0.50 per

share valid for three years.

 

The Asset was included in intangible assets as IP technology under development and the fair value for total consideration was determined on the date of acquisition as $3,106,831, see note 5. The fair value of consideration paid was allocated as follows (i) cash consideration at net present value of $1,148,911, (ii) consideration in common stock was valued at $1,360,000, and (iii) consideration in warrants was valued at $597,920.

 

The repayment terms for the cash consideration were modified on September 28, 2020 as follows:

 

  Payment due October 30, 2020     $ 400,000  
  Payment due December 31, 2020       350,000  
  Payment due March 31, 2021       200,000  
  Payment due March 31, 2022       250,000  

 

The net present value of the future payments before modification of payment terms was determined using a weighted average cost of capital of 24.70% and was determined to be $1,158,632. The net present value of the future payments upon modification of payment terms was determined using a weighted average cost of capital of 24.70% and was determined to be $1,032,256, with a gain of $126,376 recognized and included in the statement of operations, see note 8.

 

The Company has not been able to make the payments as per the modified due dates as a result of cash flow shortage and is continuing to make the payments when funds become available.

 

In October 2020, repayment terms were further modified to extend the last payment date to 2023. The net present value of the future payments before the second modification of payment terms was determined using a weighted average cost of capital of 24.70% and was determined to be $937,140. The net present value of the future payments upon second modification of payment terms was determined using a weighted average cost of capital of 24.70% and was determined to be $778,127, with a gain of $159,013 recognized and included in the statement of operation, see note 8.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2020, a total of $162,895 including a payment on initial stage of the asset acquisition in the amount of $50,000 was paid. Subsequent to the year ended December 31, 2020, an additional $353,498 has been paid. The Company has not been able to make the payments as per the modified due dates as a result of cash flow shortage and is continuing to make the payments when funds become available.

 We test goodwill for impairment at the reporting level annually and more often if an event occurs or circumstances change that indicate the fair value of a reporting unit is below its carrying amount. The qualitative factors we considered include, general macroeconomic conditions, industry and market conditions, cost factors, events or changes affecting the composition or carrying amount of the net assets of our reporting unit, volatility in our share price and other relevant entity-specific events. During the year, the Company acquired BGC, triggering a substantial event.

 

During the year the Company identified circumstances which would call for evaluation of goodwill impairment and therefore impaired $13,243,071 reducing the goodwill related to the acquisition to $3,263,210. As at December 31, 2020, the Company identified additional circumstances including actual results compared to the projection which would call for evaluation of goodwill impairment and therefore impaired the remaining balance of goodwill related to the acquisition to $nil.”

 

NOTE 6 – RIGHT-OF-USE ASSET

 

The right-of-use assets consist of the operating lease for the Company's subsidiary BGC’s office facility in Toronto and office lease facility for one of the Company’s subsidiaries, MSS, which are amortized over the remaining term of the lease of 33 and 36 months, respectively. The right-of-use assets also consists of a finance leased vehicle for one of the Company’s subsidiary, MSS. The leases from MSS have been removed as a result of deemed disposition of MSS.

 

The Company adopted ASC 842 – Leases using the modified retrospective cumulative catch-up approach. Under this approach, the Company did not restate its comparative amounts and recognized a right-of-use asset equal to the present value of future lease payments. The Company elected to apply the practical expedient to only transition contracts which were previously identified as leases and elected to not recognize right-of-use assets and lease obligation for leases of low value assets.

The present value of the loan at December 31, 2020 was $50,508. Repayment of the loan balance on or before December 31, 2022 will result in a loan forgiveness of $10,000. As at January 1st, 2023, the Company will have the option to extend the repayment of the capital for 3 years, and will benefit from an interest rate of 5%. The loan was initially recorded at a fair value of $78,540, considering the grant, the interest-free loan and the reimbursement on December 31, 2022. An effective rate of 24.7% was used, taking into account the rate that the Company would have obtained for a similar loan.

NOTE 12 – FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND RISK MANAGEMENT

 

 

The Company has exposure to liquidity risk and foreign currency risk. The Company's risk management objective is to preserve and redeploy the existing treasury as appropriate, ultimately to protect shareholder value. Risk management strategies, as discussed below, are designed and implemented to ensure the Company's risks and the related exposure are consistent with the business objectives and risk tolerance.

 

Liquidity Risk: Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will not be able to meet its financial obligations as they come due. The Company manages its liquidity by ensuring that there is sufficient capital to meet short and long-term business requirements, after considering cash requirements from operations and the Company's holdings of cash and cash equivalents. The Company also always strives to maintain sufficient financial liquidity in order to participate in investment opportunities as they arise, as well as to withstand sudden adverse changes in economic circumstances.

 

Management forecasts cash flows for its current and subsequent fiscal years to predict future financing requirements. Future requirements may be met through a combination of credit and access to capital markets. The Company's cash requirements are dependent on the level of operating activity, a large portion of which is discretionary. Should management decide to increase its operating activity, more funds than what is currently in place would be required. It is not possible to predict whether financing efforts will be successful or sufficient in the future. On December 31, 2020, the Company had $64,412 in cash and cash equivalents (December 31, 2019 - $21,477). Subsequent to December 31, 2020, the Company raised approximately $400,000 in financing. See (note 16)

 

Currency risk: Zoompass Holdings, its Indian subsidiaries and Canadian subsidiaries transactions are in US dollars and Indian Rupees, Canadian dollars, respectively. The results of the Company's operations are subject to currency translation risk. The Company mitigates foreign exchange risk through forecasting its foreign currency denominated expenditures and maintaining an appropriate balance of cash in each currency to meet the expenditures. As the Company's reporting currency is the US dollar, fluctuations in US dollar will affect the results of the Company.

 

Credit risk: Credit risk is the risk of loss associated with a counterparty's inability to fulfill its payment obligations. As of December 31, 2020, the Company's credit risk is primarily attributable to cash and cash equivalents and accounts receivable. On December 31, 2020, most of the Company's cash and cash equivalents were held with reputable Canadian chartered banks. The nature of Company’s diverse customer base ensures that there is no concentration of credit risk. Based on accounts receivable amounts that are past due, historical trends and available information there is no indication that a customer could be experiencing liquidity or going concern problems.

 

Interest rate risk: Interest rate risk is the risk borne by an interest-bearing asset or liability because of fluctuations in interest rates. Financial assets and financial liabilities with variable interest rates expose the Company to cash flow interest rate risk. The Company's does not have significant interest rate risk.

 

Fair values: The carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheet for cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivables, accounts payable and accrued liabilities and notes payable approximate fair value because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization.

a)

During the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company learned that a class action complaint (the “Class Action Complaint”) had been filed against the Company, its Chief Executive Officer and its Chief Financial Officer in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. The Class Action Complaint alleges, inter alia, that defendants violated the federal securities laws by, among other things, failing to disclose that the Company was engaged in an unlawful scheme to promote its stock. The Company has been served with the Class Action Complaint. The Company has analyzed the Class Action Complaint and based on that analysis, has concluded that it is legally deficient and otherwise without merit. The Company intends to vigorously defend against these claims.

 

On August 7, 2018, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey dismissed the Class Action Complaint. Additionally, after the year end on August 21, 2018, the Company was served with the Second Amended Complaint in the District of New Jersey. The Company filed a motion to dismiss the Second Amended Complaint on September 18, 2018. On January 23, 2019, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey dismissed the Second Amended Complaint with prejudice. Plaintiff filed a motion for reconsideration of the dismissal order on February 7, 2019. On May 14, 2019, the Plaintiff’s motion to reconsider was denied. On June 10, 2019, the plaintiffs filed an appeal with United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. As of May 27, 2020, the Class Action Complaints, including applicable appeals, have been settled or dismissed by the parties and the applicable courts.

The state court action subsequently was removed to federal court. The Derivative Complaints allege, inter alia, that the Company’s officers and directors directed the Company to undertake an unlawful scheme to promote its stock. The Company has been served with the Derivative Complaints. The Company has analyzed them and based on its analysis, has concluded that the Derivative Complaints are legally deficient and otherwise without merit. As of May 27, 2020, the Derivative Complaints, including applicable appeals, have been settled or dismissed by the parties and the applicable courts.

 

The Company was also served with a third derivative action, which was filed March 23, 2018, against the Company’s Directors and Chief Executive Officer, President, and Corporate Secretary, and nominally against the Company, in Nevada state court. Subsequently, this case was removed to federal court.
