PART I

 

ITEM 1. BUSINESS

 

Corporate Background

 

Elite Data Services, Inc., (“DEAC”), formerly Dynamic Energy Alliance Corporation (the “Company”), was incorporated in the State of Florida on November 23, 1981 as Mammathetics Corp. On November 4, 2013, the Board of Directors approved the proposal to change the name of the company from Dynamic Energy Alliance Corporation to Elite Data Services, Inc.

 

From 1981 through the first quarter of 2011, the Company’s business was that of a marketer of tumor detection equipment. On March 9, 2011, the Company shifted its focus to the recoverable energy sector. In 2013, the Company transitioned its operations to offering web-based marketing services for the automotive industry through owned and operated online platforms. Further, in 2014, the Company acquired licensing and distribution rights to operate gaming machines in Honduras and Roatan. Both the online marketing and gaming operations continued from 2014 through December 31, 2016.

 

On May 18, 2016, we restructured the Company resulting in the online marketing assets and operations being transferred into a newly formed entity, Elite Data Marketing LLC, a Florida corporation, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. On same date, we also created Elite Gaming Ventures LLC, a Florida limited liability company, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, to own and operate Elite Data Holdings S.A., a Honduras corporation, which was designated to handle all the gaming operations under a newly formed joint venture.

 

On August 26, 2016, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to acquire 100% of WOD Market LLC (“WOD”), a Colorado limited liability company and provider of intelligent retail solutions for gym owners and coaches, in three (3) separate closings with the final closing anticipated on October 15, 2016.

 

For the period ending December 31, 2016, we were a technology driven management company which owned and operated online marketing and gaming businesses. In addition, we continued to pursue the acquisition of WOD, which did not close as anticipated on October 15, 2016.

 

Subsequently, on January 10, 2017, the Company executed the first amendment to the purchase of WOD to extend the second closing date from on or about September 15, 2016 to on or about March 31, 2017, and further extend the third and final closing date from on or about October 15, 2016 to on or about June 30, 2017, respectively.

 

Concurrently, on March 14, 2017, Company executed the second amendment to the definitive agreement, as amended, which further amended certain terms of the WOD purchase, including the formation of a joint venture to further develop and manage the current WOD business.

 

On March 14, 2017, the Company executed a note cancellation agreement and assignment with Baker & Myers & Associates LLC (“Baker Myers”) which resulted in Elite Data Marketing LLC no longer being a subsidiary of the Company, with no further operational effect or obligation to the Company.

 

On March 14, 2017, the Company executed a joint venture termination agreement with H Y H Investments S.A. (“HYHI”) which resulted in Elite Gaming Ventures LLC (and, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Elite Data Holdings S.A.) no longer being a subsidiary of the Company.

 

Today, the Company, serves the fitness community marketing training products in fitness centers and gyms through automated retail solutions allowing coaches and trainers to focus on what’s important while athletes have access to the products they need to perform at their highest level. WOD aims to relieve gym owners and coaches of the burden of managing retail sales including upfront inventory purchases, ongoing inventory management, payments, marketing, etc. while also providing a service for members to have convenient access to products that help them perform better. WOD intends to forge a mutually beneficial relationship with each gym, customer and vendor to ensure the best possible experience.

Overview of Business and Operations

 

Online Marketing Platforms

 

On May 20, 2016, the Company executed an Assignment of Ownership Interest with its newly formed subsidiary, Elite Data Marketing LLC, pursuant to which the Company assigned and transferred (A) a certain amount of Company’s ownership interest held in www.classifiedride.com, an online classified listing website (the “ClassifiedRide”), equal to an aggregate total of one hundred percent (100%) of the ownership interest of the ClassifiedRide asset (the “ClassifiedRide Asset”), acquired by the Company from Baker Myers, on or about January 13, 2014, and (B) a certain amount of Company’s ownership interest in Autoglance LLC, a Tennessee limited liability company (the “Autoglance”), equal to an aggregate total of fifty-one percent (51%) of the units of membership interest (the “Autoglance Units”), including, but not limited to, the majority control over all owned assets of Autoglance, acquired by the Company from Baker Myers, on or about January 15, 2014.

 

On or about March 14, 2017, the Company and Baker & Myers & Associates LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“Baker Myers,” an entity owned by Sarah Myers, a former Secretary, Treasurer and Director of the Company) executed a Note Cancellation and Extinguishment Agreement (the “Note Cancellation Agreement”), pursuant to which Baker Myers (also herein referred to as “Releasor”) decided to exercise the entire Option Agreement for the acquisition of Elite Data Marketing LLC, a Florida limited liability company (the “EDM”), as set forth in the Share Exchange Agreement, dated May 18, 2016, in which Releasor agreed to forego and waive any and all right in, entitlement to or interest in any principal, interest, late charges, reimbursable attorneys’ fees, reimbursable expenses and any other sums due and payable with respect to a total of Two Hundred Thousand Dollars (US$200,000) of the final two (2) quarterly payments of the Redeemable Note dated May 18, 2016 (the “Cancelled Sum”), and any future payments due under the Cancelled Sum of the Redeemable Note and all or any other of Releasor’s rights under the Cancelled Sum of the Redeemable Note, thereby extinguishing and canceling the Cancelled Sum of the Redeemable Note and terminating any and all of Releasee’s obligations thereunder Cancelled Sum of the Redeemable Note, effective as of March 14, 2017 (the “Effective Date”), in exchange for the assignment and transfer by the Company of any and all of the issued and outstanding membership interests owned and held by Releasee representing a total of One Hundred Percent (100%) of the ownership interest of EDM to Releasor on the Effective Date (the “Cancellation Transaction”), pursuant to the Assignment of Membership Interests (the “Assignment”), attached as Exhibit A to the Note Cancellation Agreement, and including other terms and conditions set forth therein.

 

The Cancellation Transaction and Assignment resulted in Elite Data Marketing LLC no longer being a subsidiary of the Company, with no further operational effect or obligation to the Company.

 

On or about March 14, 2017, the Company and H Y H Investments, S.A. (“HYHI”), a Honduras corporation executed a Joint Venture Termination Agreement (the “JV Termination Agreement”), in which the entire Joint Venture set forth in the original Joint Venture Agreement (the “Joint Venture”), dated May 20, 2016, was rendered null and void, except for the validity and enforceability of a total of Three Million Nine Hundred Thousand Dollars (US$3,900,000) represented by the first eight (8) quarterly payments of the original Amended and Restated Redeemable Note (the “Amended and Restated Redeemable Note”) issued on or about May 20, 2016 in the amended principal amount of Four Million Nine Hundred Thousand Dollars (USD $4,900,000), in relation to the following payments: (A) two (2) separate payments of Four Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars (USD $450,000), plus accrued interest to date, due on July 1, 2016 and October 1, 2016, respectively, for a total of Nine Hundred Thousand Dollars (USD $900,000), and payable in cash or convertible into shares of common stock of DEAC at a conversion price equal to the lesser of $0.01 per share or fifty percent (50%) to the five (5) trading day average closing price immediately preceding the payment date, and (B) the remaining balance of Four Million (USD $4,000,000) payable in cash in a total of eight (8) equal quarterly installments of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars (USD $500,000), plus accrued interest to date, on the first day of each quarter beginning with January 1, 2017 and ending on January 1, 2019, convertible into shares of common stock of DEAC at fifty percent (50%) discount to the five (5) trading day average closing price immediately preceding the payment date, and other terms more fully described in the amended note set forth in the Amended and Restate Redeemable Note, thus cancelling the final two (2) quarterly payments (seventh and eighth quarterly payments) of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars (USD $500,000) each for a reduction of One Million Dollars (UD$1,000,000) of the principal amount of the Amended and Restated Redeemable Note, pursuant to the terms of the Note Cancellation and Extinguishment Agreement (the “Note Cancellation Agreement”), attached as Exhibit A to the JV Termination Agreement, and any and all existing operations, including, but not limited to, all of the assets and liabilities of the Joint Venture remained in Elite Data Holdings S.A., a Honduras corporation (“EDH”), as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Elite Gaming Ventures LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“EGV”), with the ownership interest of EGV assigned and transferred to HYHI and/or its assigns as set forth in the Assignment (the “Assignment”), attached as Exhibit A-1 to the Note Cancellation Agreement, including other terms and conditions set forth therein.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Current Operations

 

During the period ending December 31, 2017, the Company, serves the fitness community marketing training products in fitness centers and gyms through automated retail solutions.

 

On August 26, 2016, Company entered into a purchase agreement to acquire 100% of WOD Market LLC (“WOD”), a Colorado limited liability company a Colorado based provider of intelligent retail solutions for gym owners and coaches in 3 separate closings with the final closing on October 15, 2016. Later, on January 10, 2017, the Company executed the first amendment to the purchase of WOD to extend the second closing date from on or about September 15, 2016 to on or about March 31, 2017, and further extend the third and final closing date from on or about October 15, 2016 to on or about June 30, 2017, respectively.

 

On March 14, 2017, Company executed a note cancellation agreement and assignment with Baker & Myers & Associates LLC which resulted in Elite Data Marketing LLC no longer being a subsidiary of the Company, with no further operational effect or obligation to the Company. On same date, Company executed a joint venture termination agreement with H Y H Investments S.A. which resulted in Elite Gaming Ventures LLC (and, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Elite Data Holdings S.A.) no longer being a subsidiary of the Company, with no further operational effect or obligation to the Company, except for certain amounts owed by the Company under a further amendment to the Amended and Restated Redeemable Note.

Table of Contents

 

In addition, on March 14, 2017, Company executed the second amendment to the purchase agreement, which amended certain terms of the WOD purchase, including the formation of a joint venture to further develop and manage the current WOD business, including the management of retail sales, up front inventory purchases, ongoing inventory management, payments, marketing, and related services.

 

Under the terms of the Joint Venture, the initial ownership interest of WOD was 20% owned by the Company, with the remaining 80% owned WODH, with the option of Company to provide additional capital contributions to WOD in increments of not less than $10,000 up to a total of $8 million dollars in the aggregate, which included an equity exchange of up to a total of 800 units (80%) of WOD owned initially by WODH to the Company for a total of approximately 199,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock and approximately 19,801,000 shares of Common Stock of the Company (the “Shares”) to be issued to WODH upon the completion of a final closing on or before December 31, 2018, under the terms set forth in Amendment No. 2.

 

Until a minimum of at least $4 million in additional capital contributions have been made by the Company to WOD, resulting in a controlling ownership interest of not less than 60% of WOD by the Company, all the Shares of Company stock earmarked for the equity exchange with WODH is being held in a Voting Trust (as defined elsewhere in this filing), along with other key shareholder positions, in order to recapitalize the Company post a 1:1000 reverse split (which was previously approved), pending effectiveness after the Company becomes a current and fully-reporting public company.

 

Plan of Operations

 

The Company’s current plan of operations for the twelve months ending December 31, 2017 involved the continued development and growth of fitness equipment to fitness centers and gyms.

 

WOD serves the fitness community by allowing coaches and trainers to focus on what’s important while athletes have access to the products they need to perform at their highest level. WOD aims to relieve gym owners and coaches of the burden of managing retail sales including upfront inventory purchases, ongoing inventory management, payments, marketing, etc. while also providing a service for members to have convenient access to products that help them perform better. WOD intends to forge a mutually beneficial relationship with each gym, customer and vendor to ensure the best possible experience.

 

Our ability to implement the phases of our business plan was dependent on us obtaining the significant financing for these projects, which we were unable to secure during the year ending December 31, 2017.

 

Going Concern

 

We do not currently have any financing arranged and we cannot provide investors with any assurance that we will be able to raise sufficient funding from the sale of our common stock to fund further phases of our business plan. In the absence of such financing, we will not be able to complete the purchase of WOD and our business plan will fail. Even if we are successful in obtaining equity financing to fund our joint venture, there is no assurance that we will obtain the funding necessary to pay our creditors and note holders on a timely basis. If we do not continue to obtain additional financing, we may be forced to abandon our joint venture and goal of acquiring controlling ownership interest in WOD. As a result, investors in our common stock would most likely lose all of their investments.

 

Results from Operations – For the year ended December 31, 2016 as compared to December 31, 2017.

Our net operating loss decreased $2,644,055 for our year ended December 31, 2017 from our year ended December 31, 2016. During the year ended December 31, 2017, our operating expenses decreased $15,127,070 from the year ended December 31, 2016. The decrease in expenses was mainly comprised of decreases in decreases in consulting expenses of $9,980,000 and a decrease in asset impairment of $5,480,000. Our other expense increased $12,483,015 in the current year of measurement from the prior year of measurement. This increase was due to an increase of a non-cash loss on derivative instruments and debt discount of $17,577,118; a non-cash increase gains on the settlement of debt of $5,728,967; and s decrease in interest expense of $144,409.

 

The loss on derivative instruments incurred in the current year of measurement is associated with twelve convertible notes. The changes in derivative financial instruments are non-cash items and arise from adjustments to record the derivative financial instruments at fair values in accordance with pronounced accounting standards. These changes are attributable mainly to adjustments to record the initial fair value and the subsequent change in fair value for the embedded conversion feature of derivative financial instruments and changes in the market price of our common stock, which is a component of the calculation model. The Black-Scholes option pricing model to estimate the fair value of the derivative financial instruments.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of December 31, 2017, we had cash of $0 and our working capital deficit was $35,590,192. In 2017, we generated revenues of $0 and a net loss of $ from operations of $18,491,301 and a loss of from non-controlling interest in the WOD joint venture of $4,224 making the net loss $18,495,525as compared to 2016 revenues of $0 and a net loss of $21,135,356. The net loss for the current period of measurement is mainly comprised of non-cash expenses related to derivative valuations, wages, professional fees, interest expense and a gain on debt settlement totaling $18,294,441. We are illiquid and need cash infusions from investors and/or current shareholders to deploy our current business plan.

 

The Company expects significant capital expenditures during the next 12 months, contingent upon raising additional capital. We anticipate that we will need a minimum of $2,000,000 for operations for the next 12 months, and $4,000,000 overall to acquire at least a 60% controlling interest in WOD, pursuant to the joint venture agreement.

 

The source of such capital is uncertain, and there is no assurance that the Company will be successful in obtaining such capital on commercially reasonable terms, or at all. We have a working capital deficit and will need cash infusions from investors and/or current shareholders to deploy our current business plan and joint venture.

 

To implement our business plan, we will need to continue to raise working capital in the form of equity in an amount up to $2,000,000 over the twelve-month period ending December 31, 2018 on terms and conditions to be determined. If we were unable to raise any funds from the sale of equity, management may elect to seek subsequent interim or “bridge” financing in the form of debt as may be necessary.

 

At this time, management is unable to determine the specific amounts and terms of such future financings, or whether or not we will be successful in raising such funds on a basis acceptable to us.

On January 28, 2016, JSJ made a formal demand for repayment of the Note payable by February 26, 2016 and has threatened litigation if payment is not tendered.

At the time of the filing of this Report, JSJ has converted a total of $20,690 of the principle into shares of the Company’s common stock, The principal balance at December 31, 2016 was $79,310 with accrued interest of $7,110.

Going Concern

 

Management believes that our current financial condition, liquidity and capital resources will not satisfy our cash requirements for the next twelve months to deploy our current business plan, and as such we will need to either raise additional proceeds through financing facilities, sales of securities and our officers and directors will need to make additional financial commitments to our Company, neither of which is guaranteed. We plan to satisfy our future cash requirements, primarily the working capital required to execute on our current business and fund our necessary operating expenses, through financial commitments from future debt facilities and equity sales, if and when possible.

 

Management believes that we may generate some revenues within the next 12 months of 2017, but that these revenues will not satisfy our cash requirements to implement our current business plan for the funding of the WOD joint venture, which is subject to change depending upon pending business opportunities and available financing.

 

We had no committed source for funds as of December 31, 2016 other than our convertible debt instruments. No representation is made that any funds will be available when needed. In the event that funds cannot be raised when needed, we may not be able to carry out our business plan, may never achieve revenue, and could fail to satisfy our future cash requirements as a result of these uncertainties.

 

It will be necessary to raise working capital funds through equity and debt financing facilities, which are extremely difficult for an early stage company to secure and may not be available to us or on a basis favorable to us. However, if such debt financing is available, we would likely have to pay additional costs associated with high-risk loans and be subject to above market interest rates.

 

The Company and has accumulated a deficit of $53,675,582 at December 31, 2017. We currently have only limited working capital with which continue our operating activities. The amount of capital required to sustain operations is subject to future events and uncertainties, but the Company anticipates it will need to obtain approximately $2,000,000 in additional working capital in the form of debt and/or equity in order to cover our current expenses over the next 12 months in furtherance of our business plan. Whether such capital will be obtainable or obtainable on commercially reasonable terms is at this date uncertain. These circumstances raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, which require us to make estimates and judgments that significantly affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements. Note 3, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2017, describes our significant accounting policies which are reviewed by management on a regular basis. 

 

Capital Expenditures

 

We have not incurred any material capital expenditures.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have not entered into any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources and would be considered material to investors.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of

Elite Data Services, Inc. and Subsidiaries,

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying statement of financial position of Elite Data Services, Inc. and Subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, the related statements of loss, stockholders’ deficit and cash flows for each of the two year period ended December 31, 2017, and the related notes (collectively, the “financial statements”).

 

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2017, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

The Company’s management is responsible for these financial statements. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s consolidated financial statements. 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 audits 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. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, 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 of the financial statements included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. Our audits also included performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, these conditions 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 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset carrying amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that might result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

ELITE DATA SERVICES, INC. 

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

Elite Data Services, Inc. (hereinafter the “Company”, “Our”, “We” or “Us”) is a retail focused management company which currently owns a 20% minority interest of WOD Market LLC, a Colorado limited liability company, a provider of intelligent retail solutions for gym owners and coaches, including the management of retail sales, up front inventory purchases, ongoing inventory management, payments, marketing, and related services. Under a joint venture agreement dated March 14, 2017, the Company co-operates WOD with WOD Holdings Inc. (“WODH”), a Delaware corporation majority owned by Brenton Mix, our Chief Executive Officer, and Taryn Watson, a related party.

 

Prior to March 14, 2017, the Company was a technology driven management company which owned and operated online marketing and gaming businesses: Elite Data Marketing LLC, and Elite Gaming Ventures LLC, from 2013 and 2014, respectively.

 

During the year ending December 31, 2016, we made limited progress with our online marketing platforms due to lack of funding to complete required programming and coding enhancements. However, during the year ending December 31, 2016, we anticipated obtaining additional funding which would have afforded us the ability of bringing certain new marketing offerings to our platforms in hopes of increasing traffic flow, capturing new users and generating revenues. Due to the Company not being a current and fully reporting company in 2016, the Company was unable to raise the capital needed to advance the online marketing business resulting in a loss of business opportunities.

 

On March 14, 2017, the Company executed a note cancellation agreement and assignment with Baker & Myers & Associates LLC which resulted in Elite Data Marketing LLC no longer being a subsidiary of the Company, with no further operational effect or obligation to the Company.

 

Separately, pursuant to the terms of the Joint Venture with H Y H Investments S.A. (“HYHI”) formed on or about May 18, 2016, we intended to implement the creation of the joint venture relationship using Elite Data Holdings S.A., a Honduras corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Elite Gaming Ventures LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“EVG”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and a distributor license from HYHI and El Mar Muerto Beauty Mineral, S.A., a Honduras corporation (“EMBM”) to establish gaming operations (the “Purpose”) by distributing and maintaining a total of eighty (80) slot machines in the cities of La Lima, Cortes; eighty (80) slot machines in the cities of Trujillo, Colon; and One Hundred and Sixty (160) slot machines in Roatan in the bay island of Honduras.

 

In order to effect the distributor license related to the gaming operations, the Company and EVG are responsible for providing any and all financial and operational resources required to execute on the gaming license granted to the Company, including, but not limited to, the funding for the initial and ongoing operating costs in the minimum amount of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars (USD $500,000) on or before December 31, 2016 (the “Initial Funding”). See Note 16.

 

During the period ending December 31, 2016, none of the capital required to pay the minimum operational costs of the joint venture which resulted in a loss of business opportunities, and further strained the relationship with HYHI, our joint venture partner.

 

On March 14, 2017, Company executed a joint venture termination agreement with H Y H Investments S.A. which resulted in Elite Gaming Ventures LLC (and, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Elite Data Holdings S.A.) no longer being a subsidiary of the Company, with no further operational effect or obligation to the Company, except for certain amounts owed by the Company under a further amendment to the Amended and Restated Redeemable Note.

Table of Contents

 

Separately, the Company intended to expand its operations in the fourth quarter of 2016 to include intelligent retail solutions for gym owners and coaches through the completion of the acquisition of WOD (delayed), which the Company currently owns a minority interest stake of 20% as of August 26, 2016, with 100% ownership interest anticipated to be completed in 2017.

 

WOD serves the fitness community by allowing coaches and trainers to focus on what’s important while athletes have access to the products they need to perform at their highest level. WOD aims to relieve gym owners and coaches of the burden of managing retail sales including upfront inventory purchases, ongoing inventory management, payments, marketing, etc. while also providing a service for members to have convenient access to products that help them perform better. WOD intends to forge a mutually beneficial relationship with each gym, customer and vendor to ensure the best possible experience.

 

On January 10, 2017, the Company executed the first amendment to the purchase of WOD to extend the second closing date from on or about September 15, 2016 to on or about March 31, 2017, and further extend the third and final closing date from on or about October 15, 2016 to on or about June 30, 2017, respectively.

 

Pursuant to management’s decision to divest itself from its online marketing and gaming businesses, and focus exclusively on the fitness retail sales business, the Company executed the second amendment to the definitive agreement on March 14, 2017, which further amended certain terms of the WOD purchase, including the formation of a joint venture to further develop and manage the current WOD business.

 

Under the terms of the Joint Venture, the initial ownership interest of WOD was 20% owned by the Company, with the remaining 80% owned WODH. The Company may, at its option provide additional capital contributions to WOD in increments of not less than $10,000 up to a total of $8 million dollars in the aggregate, which included an equity exchange of up to a total of 800 units (80%) of WOD owned initially by WODH to the Company for a total of approximately 199,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock and approximately 19,801,000 shares of Common Stock of the Company (the “Shares”) to be issued to WODH upon the completion of a final closing on or before December 31, 2018, under the terms set forth in Amendment No. 2.

 

Until a minimum of at least $4 million in additional capital contributions have been made by the Company to WOD, resulting in a controlling ownership interest of not less than 60% of WOD by the Company, all the Shares of Company stock earmarked for the equity exchange with WODH are being held in a Voting Trust (as defined elsewhere in this filing), along with other key shareholder positions, in order to recapitalize the Company post a an expected 1:1000 reverse split (which was previously approved), pending effectiveness after the Company is current in its public company filings. The raising of capital is likely to occur immediately after the reverse split providing the funding for closure of Amendment 2.

 

Our ability to complete subsequent phases of our newly developed business plan and operations are subject to us obtaining additional financing as these expenditures will exceed our cash reserves. 

 

Today, we serve the fitness community marketing training products in fitness centers and gyms through automated retail solutions.

 

NOTE 2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements of the Company are presented in accordance with the requirements for Form 10-K and Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (all of which were of a normal recurring nature) considered necessary to fairly present the financial position, results of operations, and cash flows of the Company on a consistent basis, have been made.

Going Concern

 

Since inception, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $53,676,594. The Company currently has only limited working capital with which to continue its operating activities. The amount of capital required to sustain operations is subject to future events and uncertainties. The Company must secure additional working capital through loans, sale of equity securities, or a combination, in order to implement its current business plans. There can be no assurance that such funding will be available in the future, or available on commercially reasonable terms favorable to the Company. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been presented on the basis of the continuation of the Company as a going concern and do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. Management continued to manage its costs for the year ended December 31, 2017 to ensure appropriate funding is on hand for its limited operations.

 

NOTE 3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Dynamic Energy Development Corporation (DEDC), which is inactive and Transformation Consulting (TC), which is also inactive. All significant inter-company accounts have been eliminated in consolidation. Neither had any operations for the year ended December 31, 2017 or 2016. The 20% WOD investment is recorded as an equity losst on the Consolidated Statements of Operation with the offset presented as reduction to the WOD membership on the Consolidated Balance Sheet in 2017.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to intangible assets and deferred income tax asset valuation allowances. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company’s estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Intangible Assets

 

We review our long-lived assets, including intangible assets subject to amortization, for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Impairment, if any, is measured as the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value based on market value (when available) or discounted expected cash flows of those assets, and is recorded in the period in which the determination is made. Intangible assets not subject to amortization are tested annually for impairment and more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that it is more likely than not that the asset is impaired.

 

 
F-8
 
Table of Contents

 

Development Costs

 

Development costs are expensed in the period they are incurred unless they meet specific criteria related to technical, market and financial feasibility, as determined by management, including but not limited to the establishment of a clearly defined future market for the product, and the availability of adequate resources to complete the project. If all criteria are met, the costs are deferred and amortized over the expected useful life, or written off if a product is abandoned. At December 31, 2016 and 2017, the Company had no deferred product development costs.

 

Cash

 

Cash includes all highly liquid instruments with an original maturity of three months or less at the date of purchase. The Company maintains its cash in cash deposit accounts, which are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) up to $250,000 per legal ownership. At times, the Company’s accounts may exceed federally insured limits. To date, the Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts. At December 31, 2017 and 2016, the Company had $0 and $540 in cash and no other cash equivalents, respectively.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, line of credit payable, loans from a related party, contingent consideration payable, and convertible note payable. The carrying amount of these financial instruments approximates fair value due either to length of maturity or interest rates that approximate prevailing market rates unless otherwise disclosed in these financial statements.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company reviews the terms of convertible debt, equity instruments and other financing arrangements 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 that may, depending on their terms, be accounted for as derivative instrument liabilities, rather than as equity. The Company may also issue options or warrants to non-employees in connection with consulting or other services.

 

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. For warrant-based derivative financial instruments, the Company used the Black-Scholes option pricing model to value the derivative instruments until May 18, 2016 when a restructuring of most current notes and the addition of more notes caused the number of authorized shares to be insufficient creating a default and triggering all notes conversion privileges to be immediately accelerated. The Binomial Lattice Model is now used to provide a model that the Company believes provides a more representative model of future expenses, conversion periods and length of time to conversion than the Black Scholes based upon only the remaining short time to note maturities all existing notes have embedded conversion features that cause all of the following accounting treatments to be utilized. 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.

 

 
F-9
 
Table of Contents

 

The discount from the face value of the convertible debt or equity instruments resulting from allocating some or all of the proceeds to the derivative instruments, together with the stated interest on the instrument, is amortized over the life of the instrument through periodic charges to income, usually using the effective interest method.

 

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.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with the FASB ASC Section 605-10-S99, Revenue Recognition, Overall, SEC Materials (“Section 605-10-S99”). Section 605-10-S99 requires that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred or services rendered; (3) the fee is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Business combinations

 

Each investment in a business is being measured and determined whether the investment should be accounted for as a cost-basis investment, an equity investment, a business combination or a common control transaction. An investment in which the Company do not have a controlling interest and which the Company is not the primary beneficiary but where the Company has the ability to exert significant influence is accounted for under the equity method of accounting. For those investments that we account for in accordance ASC 805, Business Combinations, the Company records the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the management’s estimate of their fair values on the date of the business combination. The assessment of the estimated fair value of each of these can have a material effect on the reported results as intangible assets are amortized over various lives. Furthermore, according to ASC 805-50-30-5, when accounting for a transfer of assets or exchange of shares between entities under common control, the entity that receives the net assets or the equity interests shall initially measure the recognized assets and liabilities transferred at their carrying amounts in the accounts of the transferring entity at the date of transfer.

 

Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share

 

Basic loss per common share (“EPS”) is calculated by dividing the net loss available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock. The number of common shares that are exercisable from warrants or converted from debt into common stock is material to affect diluted EPS results. However since the Company shows losses for the periods presented basic and diluted loss per share are the same for all periods presented.

Stock-Based Compensation

 

On December 1, 2005, the Company adopted the fair value recognition provisions codified in ASC 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation. The Company adopted those provisions using the modified-prospective-transition method. Under this method, compensation cost recognized for all periods prior to December 1, 2005 includes: a) compensation cost for all share-based payments granted prior to, but not yet vested as of November 30, 2005, based on the grant-date fair value and b) compensation cost for all share-based payments granted subsequent to November 30, 2005, based on the grant-date fair value. In addition, deferred stock compensation related to non-vested options is required to be eliminated against additional paid-in capital. The results for periods prior to December 1, 2005 were not restated.

 

The Company accounts for equity instruments issued in exchange for the receipt of goods or services from parties other than employees in accordance with ASC 505, Equity. Costs are measured at the estimated fair market value of the consideration received or the estimated fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The value of equity instruments issued for consideration other than employee services is determined on the earliest of a performance commitment or completion of performance by the counterparty. There are no stock based compensation commitments in existence at December 31, 2017.

 

Income Taxes

 

Potential benefits of income tax losses are not recognized in the accounts until realization is more likely than not. The Company has adopted the accounting standards codified in ASC 740, Income Taxes as of its inception. Pursuant to those standards, the Company is required to compute tax asset benefits for net operating losses carried forward. Potential benefit of net operating losses have not been recognized in these financial statements because the Company cannot be assured it is more likely than not that it will utilize the net operating losses carried forward in future years.

 

ASC 740-10-25 prescribes recognition thresholds that must be met before a tax position is recognized in the financial statements and provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition. An entity may only recognize or continue to recognize tax positions that meet a “more likely than not” threshold. Based on its evaluation, the Company has concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in its financial statements.

 

The Company does not have any unrecognized tax benefits as of December 31, 2016 and 2017 that, if recognized, would affect the Company’s effective income tax rate. The Company’s policy is to recognize interest and penalties related to income tax issues as components of income tax expense. The Company did not recognize or have any accrual for interest and penalties relating to income taxes as of December 31, 2016 and 2017.

Table of Contents

 

Common Share Non-Monetary Consideration

 

In situations where common shares are issued and the fair value of the goods or services received is not readily determinable, the fair value of the common shares is used to measure and record the transaction. The fair value of the common shares issued in exchange for the receipt of goods and services is based on the stock price as of the earliest of the date at which: 

 

 

i.

 The counterparty’s performance is complete;

 

ii.

 commitment for performance by the counterparty to earn the common shares is reached; or

 

iii.

 the common shares are issued if they are fully vested and non-forfeitable at that date.

 

Share Purchase Warrants

 

The Company accounts for common share purchase warrants at fair value in accordance with ASC 815, “Derivatives and Hedging”. The Black-Scholes option pricing valuation method is used to determine fair value of these warrants. Use of this method requires that the Company make assumptions regarding stock volatility, dividend yields, expected term of the warrants and risk-free interest rates.

 

Convertible Instruments

 

The Company evaluates and accounts for conversion options embedded in convertible instruments in accordance with ASC 815 “Derivatives and Hedging Activities”. Applicable GAAP requires companies to bifurcate conversion options from their host instruments and account for them as free standing derivative financial instruments according to certain criteria. The criteria include circumstances in which (a) the economic characteristics and risks of the embedded derivative instrument are not clearly and closely related to the economic characteristics and risks of the host contract, (b) the hybrid instrument that embodies both the embedded derivative instrument and the host contract is not re-measured at fair value under other GAAP with changes in fair value reported in earnings as they occur and (c) a separate instrument with the same terms as the embedded derivative instrument would be considered a derivative instrument. Each reporting period, the Company evaluates whether convertible debt to acquire stock of the Company contain provisions that protect holders from declines in the stock price or otherwise could result in modification of the exercise price under the respective convertible debt agreements.

 

The Company accounts for convertible instruments (when we have determined that the embedded conversion options should not be bifurcated from their host instruments) as follows: The Company records when necessary, discounts to convertible notes for the intrinsic value of conversion options embedded in debt instruments based upon the differences between the fair value of the underlying common stock at the commitment date of the note transaction and the effective conversion price embedded in the note. Debt discounts under these arrangements are amortized over the term of the related debt to their stated date of redemption. A December 31, 2017 the Company uses a Binomial Lattice Model to judge the fair value of all of its currently outstanding derivative liabilities and to amortize any debt discounts that may have a remaining balance.

Recently and Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03 “Interest – Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs.” ASU No. 2015-03 provides that an entity: (1) present debt issuance costs in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying value of the associated debt liability rather than as an asset; and (2) report amortization of debt issuance costs as interest expense. Company has elected to adopt ASU No. 2015-03 as of December 31, 2015 and has no material impact on the financial statements.

 

In July 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-11, “Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory (Topic 330)”, (“ASU 2015-11”). Topic 330, Inventory, currently requires an entity to measure inventory at the lower of cost or market, with market value represented by replacement cost, net realizable value or net realizable value less a normal profit margin. The amendments in ASU 2015-11 require an entity to measure inventory at the lower of cost or net realizable value. ASU 2015-11 is effective in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018 for the Company, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this guidance to have an impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

In November 2015 the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2015-17, “Income Taxes (Topic 740) Related to the Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes which will require entities to present deferred tax assets (DTAs) and deferred tax liabilities (DTLs) as noncurrent in a classified balance sheet. The ASU simplifies the current guidance (ASC 740-10-45-4), which requires entities to separately present DTAs and DTLs as current and noncurrent in a classified balance sheet. The ASU is effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those annual periods. The Board decided to allow all entities to early adopt the ASU for financial statements that had not been issued. The Company has adopted this ASU at December 31, 2015, which has no material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In January 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-01, “Financial Instruments – Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities (Subtopic 825-10).” The amendments require all equity investments to be measured at fair value with changes in the fair value recognized through net income (other than those accounted for under the equity method of accounting or those that result in consolidation of the investee). The amendments also require an entity to present separately in other comprehensive income the portion of the total change in the fair value of a liability resulting from a change in the instrument-specific credit risk when the entity has elected to measure the liability at fair value in accordance with the fair value option for financial instruments. In addition, the amendments eliminate the requirement to disclose the fair value of financial instruments measured at amortized cost for entities that are not public business entities and the requirement to disclose the method(s) and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost on the balance sheet for public business entities. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company does not expect to early adopt this guidance and does not believe that the adoption of this guidance will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, “Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting.” ASU 2016-09 amends several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities and classification on the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-09 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted any interim or annual period. If early adopted, an entity must adopt all of the amendments in the same period. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact of the adoption of ASU 2016-09 on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB (including its Emerging Issues Task Force), the AICPA, and the SEC during the current reporting period did not, or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company’s present or future consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 8. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT

 

The Company values its derivative instruments under FASB ASC 820 which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.

 

Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (exit price). The Company utilizes market data or assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, including assumptions about risk and the risks inherent in the inputs to the valuation technique. These inputs can be readily observable, market corroborated, or generally unobservable. The Company classifies fair value balances based on the observability of those inputs. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1 measurement) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurement).

 

The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are as follows:

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date. Active markets are those in which transactions for the asset or liability occur in sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis. Level 1 primarily consists of financial instruments such as exchange-traded derivatives, marketable securities and listed equities.

 

Level 2 – Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets included in level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reported date.

 

Level 3 – Pricing inputs include significant inputs that are generally less observable from objective sources. These inputs may be used with internally developed methodologies that result in management’s best estimate of fair value.

 

The Company’s financial instruments consisted of cash, prepaid expense, deposit, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, line of credit, loan from stockholders and convertible debt. The estimated fair value of cash, prepaid expense, deposit, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, line of credit, loan from stockholders approximates its carrying amount due to the short maturity of these instruments. The recognition of the derivative values of convertible debt are based on the weighted-average Black-Scholes option pricing model, which the Company’s classifies as a level three of the fair value measurement hierarchy.

 

The derivative liabilities are measured at fair value using quoted market prices and estimated volatility factors based on historical quoted market prices for the Company’s common stock, and are classified within Level 3 of the valuation hierarchy.

NOTE 9. EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

 

Effective October 15, 2015, the Company adopted the Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) whereby the Company may issue common stock, not to exceed 25,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company (the “ Stock Award ” or “ Stock Awards ”), or grant options to acquire common stock of the Company (the “ Option ” or “ Options ”), (the “ Stock ”), which may be in the form of Stock Awards, or “incentive stock options” (“ ISOs ”) intended to satisfy the requirements of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and the regulations thereunder (the “ Code ”), or “non-qualified stock options” (“ NQSOs ”).

 

Pursuant to the Plan, the exercise price of stock awards or options granted under the plan which are designated as NQSO’s shall not be less than 85% of the fair market value of the stock subject to the Option on the date of grant, and not less than 65% of the fair market value of the stock subject to the Stock Award on the date of grant. To the extent required by applicable laws, rules and regulations, the exercise price of a NQSO granted to any person who owns, directly or by attribution of stock possessing more than ten percent of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock of the Company or of any Subsidiary (a “Ten Percent Stockholder”) shall in no event be less than 110% of the fair market value of the stock covered by the Stock Award or Option at the time the Stock Award or Option is granted.

 

Pursuant to the Plan, the exercise price of stock awards or options granted under the Plan which are designated as ISO’s shall not be less than the fair market value of the stock covered by the stock award or option at the time the option is granted. The exercise price of an ISO granted to any Ten Percent Stockholder shall in no event be less than 110% of the fair market value.

 

The fair market value is defined as the closing price of such stock on the date before the date the value is to be determined on the principal recognized securities exchange or recognized securities market on which such stock is reported. If selling prices are not reported, its fair market value shall be the mean between the high bid and low asked prices for such stock on the date before the date the value is to be determined (or if there are no quoted prices for such date, then for the last preceding business day on which there were quoted prices). If there is no established market for the stock, the fair market value will be determined in good faith by the Administer. The Administer will either be the Board of Directors or an Administer appointed by the Board of Directors. We do not have outstanding stock awards or options to purchase shares of our common stock under the Plan at December 31, 2017.

NOTE 10. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

Authorized

 

The Company is authorized to issue 250,000,000 shares of preferred stock, having a par value of $0.0001 per share, and 500,000,000 shares of common stock, having a par value of $0.0001 per share.

 

Effective October 15, 2015, the Company Restated its Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, and Equity Incentive Plan increasing the total number of shares of stock of all classes which we shall have authority to issue from 60,000,000 shares to 750,000,000 shares, of which the Common Stock, $0.0001 par value per share, was increased from 50,000,000 shares to 500,000,000 shares (hereinafter called “Common Stock”) and of which the Preferred Stock, $0.0001 par value per share, was increased from 10,000,000 shares to 250,000,000 shares (hereinafter called “Preferred Stock”).

 

On May 17, 2016, the Company designated 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock as Series B Convertible Preferred Stock. This series ranks senior to all non-parity stock and votes as if converted at 1,000 shares of common stock for each share of preferred outstanding. This Series B also votes as a class. The Series B shares are convertible up to 25% of the originally issued shares per quarter ending on each calendar quarter. If common shares are issued below $1.00 per share while any Series B stock is outstanding , the Company is required to issue additional shares of Series B shares so as the issuance of common shares is non-dilutive to the Series B shareholder. The outstanding shares of Preferred Series B will be multiplied by a fraction whose numerator is the number of common shares issued at less then $1.00 and the denominator of which is the number of common shares outstanding immediately before the issuance of the dilutive shares.

 

Equity Purchase Agreement and Registration Agreement with Tarpon Bay Partners LLC

 

On July 14, 2015, we entered into an Equity Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement” or “Equity Line”) and Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Agreement”) with Tarpon Bay Partners LLC (“Tarpon”) whereby Tarpon is obligated, providing the Company has met certain conditions, including the filing of a Form S-1 Registration Statement for the shares to be acquired, to purchase up to $5,000,000 of the Company’s common stock at the rates set forth in the Purchase Agreement. In conjunction with the Equity Line, the Company issued a promissory note to Tarpon for $50,000, due on January 31, 2016, with 10% interest per annum as consideration for transaction costs incurred by Tarpon. The $50,000 of transaction costs will be treated as a reduction in additional paid-in capital since the transaction costs relate to equity financing.

 

The Purchase Agreement has a term of two-years (the “term”) and may be terminated sooner by the Company or if Tarpon has purchased a total of $5,000,000 of the Company’s common stock before the expiration of the term. During the term of the Purchase Agreement, the Company may at any time deliver a “Put Notice” to Tarpon thereby requiring Tarpon to purchase a certain dollar amount (the “Investment Amount”) in exchange for a portion of the Shares (the “Put”), determined by an estimated amount of Shares equal to the investment amount indicated in the Put Notice divided by the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock on the trading day (the “Closing Price”) immediately preceding the date the Put Notice was given (the “Put Date”), multiplied by one hundred twenty-five percent (125%) (the “Estimated Put Shares”). On the trading date preceding the delivery date of such Shares, Tarpon shall deliver payment for the Shares equal to the Company’s requested Investment Amount.

 

Subject to certain restrictions, the purchase price for the Shares is equal to ninety percent (90%) of the lowest closing bid price, quoted by the exchange or principal market Company’s Common Stock is traded on, on any trading day during the ten (10) trading days immediately after the date the Company delivers to Tarpon a Put Notice in writing requiring Tarpon (the “Valuation Period”) to purchase the applicable number of Shares of the Company, subject to certain terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement. In the event the number of Estimated Put Shares initially delivered to Tarpon is greater than the Put Shares purchased by Tarpon pursuant to such Put Notice, then immediately after the Valuation Period Tarpon shall deliver to the Company any excess Estimated Put Shares associated with such Put Notice. If the number of Estimated Put Shares delivered to Tarpon is less than the Put Shares purchased by Tarpon pursuant to a Put Notice, then immediately after the Valuation Period the Company shall deliver to Tarpon the difference between the Estimated Put Shares and the Put Shares issuable pursuant to such Put Notice.

Table of Contents

 

The number of Shares sold to Tarpon shall not exceed the number of such Shares that, when aggregated with all other shares of common stock of the Company then beneficially owned by Tarpon, would result in Tarpon owning more than 9.99% of all of the Company’s common stock then outstanding. Additionally, Tarpon may not execute any short sales of the Company’s common stock. Further, the Company has the right, but never the obligation to draw down on the total of $5,000,000. The Purchase Agreement also contains other customary and standard provisions.

 

On May 24, 2016, the Company and Tarpon Bay Partners LLC (“Tarpon”) executed a Termination Agreement (the “Termination Agreement”), in which the parties agreed to cancel the original Equity Purchase Agreement (the “Original Purchase Agreement”), dated July 14, 2015 (except for the original Promissory Notes (the “Original Tarpon Note”) which was amended and restated as set forth below), in the original amount of USD $50,000.00, issued by the Company to Tarpon as additional compensation pursuant to Original Purchase Agreement), which gave the Company the right to issue and sell to Tarpon any of the Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) of the Company’s common stock.

 

In exchange for the Termination Agreement, the Company agreed to: (a) amend and restate the terms of the Original Tarpon Note, in the form of the issuance of an amended and restated convertible redeemable note (the “Amended Tarpon Note”), in the principal amount of $50,000.00, at ten percent (10%) interest per annum commencing on July 14, 2015 (the “Effective Date”), to be due and payable to Tarpon by Company in four (4) separate equal quarterly payments of Twelve Thousand Five Hundred Dollars (USD $12,500), plus accrued interest to date, due on the first day of each quarter beginning on July 1, 2016, convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price equal to fifty-eight percent (58%) of the lowest trading price for the ten (10) prior trading days, subject to aggregate conversion limitations of 9.99% and other terms and conditions set forth therein , and (b) execute a new Equity Purchase Agreement (the “New Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company would have the right to issue and sell to Tarpon a total of Fifteen Million Dollars ($15,000,000) of the Company’s common stock, under the same terms as the Original Purchase Agreement, except for no additional compensation in lieu of the Amended Tarpon Note, to be executed on such mutually agreed upon date in the future after the Company is current on all SEC filings and is relisted on the Over-the-Counter (OTC) OTCBB and OTCQB markets.

However, due to the fact, that FINRA found our submission for the corporate action to complete the reverse split and name change to be deficient neither is effective as of filing of this Report.

 

Holders of record of the Common Stock and Series B Convertible Preferred Stock at the close of business on the Record Date were entitled to participate in the written consent of our shareholders. Each share Common Stock was entitled to one vote and each share of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock was entitled to vote 1:1,000 to each share of Common Stock.

NOTE 11. INCOME TAXES

 

Potential benefits of income tax losses and other tax assets are not recognized in the accounts until realization is more likely than not. As of December 31, 2017, the Company has operating loss carry forwards of approximately $3,767,971 for tax purposes in various jurisdictions subject to expiration as described below. Pursuant to ASC 740, Income Taxes, the Company is required to compute tax asset benefits for net operating losses carried forward and other items giving rise to deferred tax assets. Future tax benefits which may arise as a result of these losses and other items have not been recognized in these financial statements, as their realization is determined not likely to occur and accordingly, the Company has recorded a valuation allowance for the deferred tax asset relating to these items. 

 

The actual income tax provisions differ from the expected amounts calculated by applying the combined income tax statutory rates applicable in each jurisdiction to the Company’s loss before income taxes and non-controlling interest. The calculated tax deferred benefit at December 31, 2017 and 2016 is based on the current Federal statutory income tax rate of 35% applied to the loss before provision for income taxes.

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES  

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

The Company’s management, with the participation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on such evaluation, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of the end of such period, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this report.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting is not intended to provide absolute assurance that a misstatement of our financial statements would be prevented or detected. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risks that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

Management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness, as of December 31, 2017 of our internal control over financial reporting based on criteria established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) updated 2013. Based on this evaluation, management concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was effective as of December 31, 2017.

 

Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rules 13a15(f) and 15d15(f) under the Exchange Act. The Company's 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 GAAP. The Company's internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that:

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

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

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

During the year ended December 31, 2017, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with management’s evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over the financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act.

 

Independent Registered Accountant’s Internal Control Attestation

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. On July 21, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which permanently exempts smaller reporting companies from providing attestation of their internal controls pursuant to Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. As a result, this report does not provide such an attestation, and the Company will be exempted from providing such an attestation until such time as it reaches $75 million in market capitalization.

 

ITEM 9B. OTHER INFORMATION

Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings

 

No officers or directors has been involved in any of the following events within the last ten years that is material to an evaluation of their ability or integrity as described in Item 401(f) of Regulation S-K.

 

Board Meetings

 

The Board of Directors took a number of actions by written consent of all of the directors during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. Such actions by the written consent of all directors are, according to Florida corporate law and the Company's by-laws, as valid and effective as if they had been passed at a meeting of the directors duly called and held. The Company's directors and officers do not receive remuneration from the Company unless approved by the Board of Directors or pursuant to an employment contract. No compensation has been paid to the Company's directors for attendance at any meetings for the period served.

 

Board Committees

 

Nominating and Compensation Committees

 

The Company does not have standing nominating or compensation committees, or committees performing similar functions. The Company's Board of Directors believes that it is not necessary to have a compensation committee at this time because the functions of such committee are adequately performed by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors also is of the view that it is appropriate for the Company not to have a standing nominating committee because the Board of Directors has performed and will perform adequately the functions of a nominating committee.

 

The Company does not have any restrictions on shareholder nominations under its certificate of incorporation or by-laws. The only restrictions are those applicable generally under Florida corporate law and the federal proxy rules, The Board of Directors will consider suggestions from individual shareholders, subject to evaluation of the person's merits. Stockholders may communicate nominee suggestions directly to the Board of Directors, accompanied by biographical details and a statement of support for the nominees. The suggested nominee must also provide a statement of consent to being considered for nomination. There are no formal criteria for nominees at the present time.

 

Audit Committee and Audit Committee Financial Expert

 

We are not required to have and we do not have an Audit Committee. The Company's directors perform some of the same functions of an Audit Committee, such as: recommending a firm of independent certified public accountants to audit the financial statements; reviewing the auditors' independence, the financial statements and their audit report; and reviewing management's administration of the system of internal accounting controls. The Company does not currently have a written audit committee charter or similar document.

Table of Contents

  

We have no “audit committee financial expert” as defined in Item 407(d)(5)(ii) of Regulation S-K. Our directors have financial statement preparation and interpretation ability obtained over the years from past business experience and education. We believe the cost related to retaining a financial expert at this time is prohibitive. Further, because of the nature of our current limited operations, we believe the services of a financial expert are not warranted.

 

Code of Ethics

 

The Company’s Board of Directors is developing a code of ethics (the “Code”) that will apply to members of the Board of Directors, all officers, employees and contemplated directors, officers and employees. The Code will set forth written standards that are designed to deter wrongdoing and to promote:

 

·

honest and ethical conduct,

·

full, fair, accurate, timely, and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that we file with, or submit to, the Securities and Exchange Commission and in other public communications made by us;

·

compliance with applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations;

·

prompt internal reporting of violations of the Code to an appropriate person or persons identified in the Code; and

·

accountability for adherence to the Code.

 

An official Code of Ethics has been finalized by the Board of Directors and made available upon request by a shareholder of the Company. We will describe the nature of amendments to the Code on our website, except that we may not describe amendments that are purely a technical, administrative, or otherwise non-substantive. We will also disclose on our website any waivers from any provision of the Code that we may grant. Information about amendments and waivers to the Code will be available on our website for at least 12 months, and thereafter, the information will be available upon request for five years.

 

Conflicts of Interest

 

Certain conflicts of interest exist and may continue to exist between the Company and its officers and directors due to the fact that each has other business interests to which they devote their primary attention. Each officer and director may continue to do so notwithstanding the fact that management time should be devoted to the business of the Company.

 

Certain conflicts of interest may exist between the Company and its management, and conflicts may develop in the future. The Company has not established policies or procedures for the resolution of current or potential conflicts of interest between the Company, its officers and directors or affiliated entities. There can be no assurance that management will resolve all conflicts of interest in favor of the Company, and conflicts of interest may arise that can be resolved only through the exercise by management their best judgment as may be consistent with their fiduciary duties. Management will try to resolve conflicts to the best advantage of all concerned.

Shareholder Communications

 

The Company provides access for its shareholders to the Company via telephone and its web site, www.elitedata.io. Shareholders are able to, and encouraged to, view all of the Company’s SEC filings as well as gain knowledge about the Company’s activities and developments that affect the shareholder’s relationship with the Company. The Company has retained the services of a dedicated professional that provides functions related to the development and distribution of shareholder communications.

 

SECTION 16(a) BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REPORTING COMPLIANCE

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, requires our directors and executive officers and the holders of more than 10% of our common stock to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership of our equity securities. Based solely on our review of the copies of the forms received by us and written representations from certain reporting persons, we believe that, during the year ended December 31, 2017, all of our executive officers, directors and the holders of 10% or more of our Common Stock had not complied with all Section 16(a) filing requirements.

 

Indemnification

 

Our officers and directors are indemnified as provided by the Florida Business Corporation Act, or “FBCA,” and our bylaws.

 

The FBCA permits a Florida corporation to indemnify any person who may be a party to any third party proceeding by reason of the fact that such person is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee, or agent of another entity, against liability incurred in connection with such proceeding (including any appeal thereof) if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in, or not opposed to, the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful.

 

The FBCA permits a Florida corporation to indemnify any person who may be a party to a derivative action if such person acted in any of the capacities set forth in the preceding paragraph, against expenses and amounts paid in settlement not exceeding, in the judgment of the board of directors, the estimated expenses of litigating the proceeding to conclusion, actually and reasonably incurred in connection with the defense or settlement of such proceeding (including appeals), provided that the person acted under the standards set forth in the preceding paragraph. However, no indemnification shall be made for any claim, issue, or matter for which such person is found to be liable unless, and only to the extent that, the court determines that, despite the adjudication of liability, but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnification for such expenses which the court deems proper.

 

ITEM 11. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
