Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

 

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF FINANCIAL STATEMENT PRESENTATION

 

DarkPulse, Inc. (formerly Klever Marketing, Inc. or the “Company”) was initially created to develop, market and distribute an electronic shopping cart device for in-store advertising, promotion and media content, as well as retail shopper services and has not commenced its planned principal operations. The Company’s activities, since inception, have consisted principally of developing various applications of its electronic shopping cart concept, including its mobile application for smart phones which the Company is currently testing in retail supermarkets, obtaining patents and trademarks related to its technology and raising capital. The Company’s activities are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including failing to secure additional funding needed to finalize development of the Company’s technology and to commercialize its product in a profitable manner.

 

As further discussed in Note 10, on April 27, 2018, Klever entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement” or the “Merger”) involving Klever as the surviving parent corporation and acquiring a privately held New Brunswick corporation known as DarkPulse Technologies Inc. (“DarkPulse” or “DP”) as its wholly owned subsidiary. DarkPulse is a development stage company involved in the development and marketing of certain unique and proprietary fiber optic-based sensing devices, as well as ultra-high sensitivity sensors for the detection of trace narcotics, chemicals and explosives. DarkPulse does not have current revenues, but anticipates revenues later in 2018. On July 18, 2018, the parties closed the Merger Agreement, as amended on July 7, 2018, and the name of the Company was subsequently changed to DarkPulse, Inc.

 

The accompanying unaudited, condensed financial statements have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted in accordance with such rules and regulations. The information furnished in the interim condensed financial statements includes normal recurring adjustments and reflects all adjustments, which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of such financial statements. Although management believes the disclosures and information presented are adequate to make the information not misleading, it is suggested that these interim condensed financial statements be read in conjunction with the Company's audited financial statements and notes thereto included in its December 31, 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Operating results for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2018.

 

NOTE 2 – SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The Company’s significant accounting policies are described in the notes to the Company’s audited financial statements included in its December 31, 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Income (Loss) Per Common Share

 

Basic net income (loss) per share of common stock is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per share of common stock is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the sum of the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and the dilutive potential common share equivalents outstanding. Potential dilutive common share equivalents consist of shares issuable upon exercise of outstanding stock options and the exercise of convertible preferred stock.

 

 

 

 6 

 

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, 28,740,529 common stock equivalents related to convertible preferred stock have been included in the calculation of diluted income per common share. For the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 and the six months ended June 30, 2018, common stock equivalents related to convertible preferred stock have not been included in the calculation of diluted loss per common share because they are anti-dilutive. Therefore, basic loss per common share is the same as diluted loss per common share.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

There were no new accounting pronouncements issued or proposed by the Financial Accounting Standards Board during the three months ended June 30, 2018 and through the date of filing of this report that the Company believes has had or will have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain amounts in the 2017 condensed financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

 

NOTE 3 – GOING CONCERN UNCERTAINTY

 

As shown in the accompanying financial statements, during the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company did not generate any revenues and reported a net loss of $49,539. As of June 30, 2018, the Company’s current liabilities exceeded its current assets by $225,182. As of June 30, 2018, the Company had $2,233 of cash.

 

The Company will require additional funding during the next twelve months to finance the growth of its operations and achieve its strategic objectives. These factors, as well as the uncertain conditions that the Company faces relative to capital raising activities, create substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company is seeking to raise additional capital principally through private placement offerings and is targeting strategic partners in an effort to finalize the development of its products and begin generating revenues. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the success of future capital offerings or alternative financing arrangements and expansion of its operations. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. Management is actively pursuing additional sources of financing sufficient to generate enough cash flow to fund its operations through calendar year 2018. However, management cannot make any assurances that such financing will be secured.

 

NOTE 4 – INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

   June 30,
2018
   December 31,
2017
 
         
Capitalized software development costs  $262,243   $262,243 
Patents and trademarks   168,564    168,564 
Accumulated amortization of patents and trademarks   (126,208)   (114,097)
           
   $304,599   $316,710 

 

The Company capitalizes software development costs incurred from the time technological feasibility has been obtained until the product is generally released to customers. Amortization of capitalized software development costs begins when the products are available to customers and is computed using the straight-line method over the remaining estimated economic life of the product. Currently, the Company anticipates amortization of software development costs to commence in fiscal year 2018. The Company achieved technological feasibility with regard to its mobile phone technology during the fourth quarter of 2010. No software development costs were incurred and capitalized during the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, and no amortization expense for software development costs was recorded for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017.

 

 

 

 7 

 

 

The costs of patents and trademarks are amortized on a straight-line basis over 5 years from the date the patent or trademark is issued. Amortization expense for patents and trademarks was $5,981 and $8,058 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $12,111 and $16,042 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

Intangible assets are tested for impairment on an annual basis or when the facts and circumstances suggest that the carrying amount of the assets may not be recovered.

In accordance with the Company’s bylaws, the Company has authorized a total of 2,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share, for all classes.

The Board of Directors of the Company elected to cancel the preferred stock dividends for the semi-annual period ended March 31, 2018. Consequently, the preferred stock dividends payable of $2,546 relating to dividends for the three months ended December 31, 2017 was eliminated. Historically, all accrued dividends for preferred stock have been authorized for payment through the issuance of preferred stock based on the ratios for each class of preferred stock described below.

Dividends are cumulative and may be paid in cash or in kind through the distribution of .0425 Class A Shares, Series 1, for each outstanding Class A Share, on each dividend payment date. Class A Shares carry a liquidation preference of $26.00 per share plus any accrued but unpaid dividends on such shares, if any, and adjusted for combinations, splits, dividends or distributions of shares of stock with respect to such shares. Class A shares are redeemable by the Company, in whole or in part, at the option of the Board of Directors of the Company, at any time.

NOTE 7 – COMMON STOCK

 

In accordance with the Company’s bylaws, the Company has authorized a total of 250,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share. As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, there were 89,680,567 and 61,322,567 common shares issued and outstanding, respectively.

The Company’s shareholders approved, by a majority vote, the adoption of the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). As amended on August 11, 2003, the Plan reserves 20,000,000 shares of common stock for issuance upon the exercise of options which may be granted from time-to-time to officers, directors, certain employees and consultants of the Company or its subsidiaries by the Board of Directors. The Plan permits the award of both qualified and non-qualified incentive stock options.

NOTE 10 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

The Company evaluated events occurring after the date of the accompanying condensed balance sheets through the date the financial statements were issued and has identified the following subsequent events that it believes require disclosure:

 

Completion of Merger

 

On April 27, 2018, the Company, DarkPulse Technologies Inc., a New Brunswick corporation (the “Private Company”), and DPTH Acquisition Corporation, a Utah corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of the Private Company (the “Merger Subsidiary”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which the Merger Subsidiary would merge with and into the Private Company and the Private Company would be the surviving corporation and become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger”). On July 7, 2018, the parties to the Merger Agreement amended the Merger Agreement to (i) eliminate the requirement that the Company effect a reverse stock split prior to closing, (ii) modify the number and type of shares that would be issued to the shareholders of the Private Company in the Merger, and (iii) make several other clerical amendments to the Merger Agreement.

 

With respect to the merger consideration to be received by the shareholders of the Private Company, instead of 85,000 shares of Company common stock being issued for each 1 share of Private Company common stock in the Merger, the parties amended the Merger Agreement to require the Company to issue 100 shares of Series D Preferred Stock for each 1 share of Private Company common stock.

 

On July 18, 2018, the parties closed the Merger and filed Articles of Merger merging the Merger Subsidiary with and into the Private Company, the Private Company paid the Company $150,000 as required by the Merger Agreement, and the Company issued 88,235 shares of its Series D Preferred Stock (the “Shares”) to the Private Company shareholders in consideration of their shares of the Private Company, with the Private Company becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. As a result of the Merger, the Private Company has been acquired by the Company, and the name of the Company was subsequently changed to DarkPulse, Inc. The Merger Agreement required the Company to pay or settle all liabilities of the Company, so that there would be no outstanding liabilities when the Merger closed. This included all of the previously unpaid accounts payable for services provided to the Company. The $150,000 merger consideration paid to the Company was, or is being used, to satisfy those obligations.

 

In connection with the Merger, as of July 18, 2018, all shares of the Company’s Class A Voting Preferred Stock, Class B Voting Preferred Stock, and Class C Voting Preferred Stock had been returned to the Company and cancelled, and immediately prior to closing the Merger on July 18, 2018, there were 89,680,567 shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding. As each share of Series D Preferred Stock entitles the holder to 6,000 votes on all matters submitted to a vote of the stockholders, and 88,235 shares of Series D Preferred Stock (the “Shares”) were issued to the Private Company shareholders in connection with the merger on July 18, 2018, the issuance of the Shares to the Private Company shareholders constituted a change of control as the Private Company shareholders now own 100% of the Company’s outstanding preferred stock, and the Shares entitle the Private Company shareholders to approximately 85.5% of the total votes associated with the Company’s common and preferred stock. With the change of control of the Company, the Merger will be accounted for as a recapitalization in a manner similar to a reverse acquisition.

 

 

 

 10 

 

 

With the exception of the CEO, who received some compensation over the years, there had been no compensation for the officers and directors over the past 10 years. As settlement of deferred compensation to the officers and directors of the Company, and in recognition of the upcoming cancellation of the PSF, Inc. preferred shares in connection with the Merger, the Company’s Board of Directors agreed on April 21, 2018, to issue the following common shares. The following shares were authorized at the recent stock price of $0.02 per share and were issued on or about May 11, 2018: Paul G. Begum – 8,650,000 shares, Robert A. Campbell – 7,383,000 shares, Jerry Wright – 3,325,000 shares, and PSF, Inc. – 9,000,000 shares. By closing of the Merger on July 18, 2018, the following preferred shares had been cancelled: 163,022 Series A preferred shares owned by PSF, Inc., 128,990 Series B preferred shares owned by PSF, Inc., and 217,362 Series C preferred shares owned by PSF, Inc. After the cancellation of these shares, there are no outstanding shares of Series A, Series B, nor Series C preferred stock.

 

Series D Preferred Stock

 

On July 12, 2018, the Company filed a Certificate of Designation with the State of Delaware amending the designation of its previously designated “Class D Voting Preferred Stock,” designating 100,000 shares of the Company’s preferred stock as “Series D Preferred Stock.” Each share of Series D Preferred Stock entitles the holder to 6,000 votes on all matters submitted to a vote of the Company’s stockholders and is convertible at the election of the holder into a number of shares of common stock equal to the number of outstanding shares of stock of the Company multiplied by 5 ⅔, divided by the number of outstanding shares of Series D Preferred Stock.

 

Name Change

 

On July 20, 2018, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation with the State of Delaware, changing the name of the Company to “DarkPulse, Inc.” The Company intends to file a corporate action notification with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) to change the name of the Company and its ticker symbol with the over-the-counter markets.

 

Securities Purchase Agreements

 

Effective July 18, 2018 the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with Carebourn Capital, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Carebourn”), providing for and issuing to Carebourn a convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $184,000, with a $24,000 original issue discount and $10,000 in transactional expenses due to Carebourn. The note bears interest at the rate of 12% per annum, is due and payable on June 20, 2019, and may be converted by Carebourn at any time after funding into shares of Company common stock at a conversion price equal to 60% of the average of the three lowest trading prices of the Company’s common stock during the 20 prior trading days. The $150,000 in net proceeds were used for payment of the consideration for the Merger.

 

Effective July 27, 2018, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with Carebourn providing for and issuing to Carebourn a convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $276,000, with a $36,000 original issue discount and $15,000 in transactional expenses due to Carebourn, and funding in tranches of $150,000 and $75,000 to the Company, with the initial $150,000 tranche funded to the Company on July 27, 2018. The note bears interest at the rate of 12% per annum, is due and payable on July 24, 2019, and may be converted by Carebourn at any time after funding into shares of Company common stock at a conversion price equal to 60% of the average of the three lowest trading prices of the Company’s common stock during the 20 prior trading days.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Background

 

DarkPulse, Inc. (formerly Klever Marketing, Inc. or the “Company”) was initially created to develop, market and distribute an electronic shopping cart device for in-store advertising, promotion and media content, as well as retail shopper services and has not commenced its planned principal operations. The Company’s activities, since inception, have consisted principally of developing various applications of its electronic shopping cart concept, including its mobile application for smart phones which the Company is currently testing in retail supermarkets, obtaining patents and trademarks related to its technology and raising capital.

 

On April 27, 2018, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement” or the “Merger”) involving the Company as the surviving parent corporation and acquiring a privately held New Brunswick corporation known as DarkPulse Technologies Inc. (“DarkPulse” or “DP”) as its wholly owned subsidiary. DarkPulse is a development stage company involved in the development and marketing of certain unique and proprietary fiber optic-based sensing devices and ultra-high sensitive sensors for detection of trace narcotics, chemicals and explosives. DarkPulse does not have current revenues, but anticipates revenues later in 2018. On July 18, 2018, the parties closed the Merger Agreement, as amended on July 7, 2018. The Merger resulted in a change of control of the Company and will be accounted for as a recapitalization in a manner similar to a reverse acquisition.

 

Going Concern Uncertainty

 

As shown in the accompanying financial statements, during the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company did not generate any revenues and reported a net loss of $49,539. As of June 30, 2018, the Company’s current liabilities exceeded its current assets by $225,182. As of June 30, 2018, the Company had $2,233 of cash.

 

The Company will require additional funding during the next twelve months to finance the growth of its operations and achieve its strategic objectives. These factors, as well as the uncertain conditions that the Company faces relative to capital raising activities, create substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company is seeking to raise additional capital principally through private placement offerings and is targeting strategic partners in an effort to finalize the development of its products and begin generating revenues. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the success of future capital offerings or alternative financing arrangements and expansion of its operations. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. Management is actively pursuing additional sources of financing sufficient to generate enough cash flow to fund its operations through calendar year 2018. However, management cannot make any assurances that such financing will be secured.

 

Results of Operations

 

Revenues

 

To date, the Company has not generated any operating revenues.

 

Operating Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses for three months ended June 30, 2018, decreased by $23,926 to $15,434 from $39,360 for the three months ended June 30, 2017. Similarly, general and administrative expenses for six months ended June 30, 2018 decreased by $43,827 to $48,242 from $92,069 for the six months ended June 30, 2017. The primary reason for the overall decrease in general and administrative expenses is a decrease in compensation to related parties. The Company did not accrue any compensation to the CEO or to the bookkeeper during the three months or six months ended June 30, 2018. The Company accrued compensation of $15,000 and $30,000 for the CEO during the three months and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively, and accrued compensation of $3,000 and $6,000 for its bookkeeper during the three months and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively.

 

Research and development expenses are currently not material to our operations and totaled $228 and $297 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $228 and $594 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Other Income (Expense)

 

Interest expense – related parties was $538 and $424 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $1,069 and $860 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The interest expense is comprised of interest expense accrued on related party notes payable.

 

Interest and other income was $0 and $275 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $0 and $575 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The interest and other income in the prior year periods resulted from administrative fees charged on the issuance of common shares.

 

Gain on settlement of debt resulting from a favorable settlement of account with certain vendors was $25,948 and $174,728 for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively. There was no such gain in the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018.

 

Provision for Income Taxes

 

The provision for income taxes was $0 and $548 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $0 and $852 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The provision for income taxes in the prior year periods is comprised of minimum state income tax payments and interest and penalties accrued on the Company’s uncertain tax positions.

 

Net Income (Loss)

 

As a result of the above, we reported a net loss of $16,200 and $14,406 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. We reported a net loss of $49,539 for the six months ended June 30, 2018, and net income of $80,928 for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company requires working capital to fund its proposed product development and operating expenses, for which the Company has historically relied primarily on short-term borrowings from related parties and the issuance of restricted common stock. During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company received proceeds from related party notes payable totaling $13,500.

 

As of June 30, 2018, we had cash of $2,233, compared to $2,498 as of December 31, 2017. As of June 30, 2018, our current liabilities exceeded our current assets by $225,182.

 

On April 27, 2018, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement” or the “Merger”) involving the Company as the surviving parent corporation and acquiring a privately held New Brunswick corporation known as DarkPulse Technologies Inc. (“DarkPulse” or “DP”) as its wholly owned subsidiary. DarkPulse is a development stage company involved in the development and marketing of certain unique and proprietary fiber optic sensing devices. DarkPulse does not have current revenues, but anticipates revenues later in 2018. On July 18, 2018, the parties closed the Merger Agreement, as amended on July 7, 2018.

 

The Company currently does not have sufficient cash to fund its operations for the next 12 months, and will require working capital to develop the DarkPulse business plan. Management is currently in the process of raising additional capital.

 

Effective July 18, 2018 the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with Carebourn Capital, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Carebourn”), providing for and issuing to Carebourn a convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $184,000, with a $24,000 original issue discount and $10,000 in transactional expenses due to Carebourn. The note bears interest at the rate of 12% per annum, is due and payable on June 20, 2019, and may be converted by Carebourn at any time after funding into shares of Company common stock at a conversion price equal to 60% of the average of the three lowest trading prices of the Company’s common stock during the 20 prior trading days. The $150,000 in net proceeds were used for payment of the consideration for the Merger.

 

Effective July 27, 2018, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with Carebourn providing for and issuing to Carebourn a convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $276,000, with a $36,000 original issue discount and $15,000 in transactional expenses due to Carebourn, and funding in tranches of $150,000 and $75,000 to the Company, with the initial $150,000 tranche funded to the Company on July 27, 2018. The note bears interest at the rate of 12% per annum, is due and payable on July 24, 2019, and may be converted by Carebourn at any time after funding into shares of Company common stock at a conversion price equal to 60% of the average of the three lowest trading prices of the Company’s common stock during the 20 prior trading days.

Cash Flows From Operating Activities

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, net cash used by operating activities was $13,765, resulting from our net loss of $49,539, partially offset by non-cash expenses of $12,111 and increases in accounts payable of $22,594 and accrued liabilities of $1,069.

 

By comparison, during the six months ended June 30, 2017, net cash used by operating activities was $32,125, resulting from our net income of $80,928, non-cash expenses of $16,042, and increases in accounts payable of $11,177 and accrued liabilities of $34,456, offset by non-cash gain of $174,728.

Factors That May Affect Future Results

 

Management’s Discussion and Analysis contains information based on management’s beliefs and forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. There can be no assurance that actual results will not differ materially from the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including but not limited to, our ability to obtain the equity funding or short-term borrowings necessary to market and launch our products, our ability to successfully serially produce and market our products; our success establishing and maintaining collaborative licensing and supplier arrangements; the acceptance of our products by customers; our continued ability to pay operating costs; our ability to meet demand for our products; the amount and nature of competition from our competitors; the effects of technological changes on products and product demand; and our ability to successfully adapt to market forces and technological demands of our customers.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to help ensure that information required to be disclosed in our filings under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC. This information is accumulated and communicated to our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation and the requirements of the Exchange Act, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of June 30, 2018, our disclosure controls and procedures continue to be ineffective. The small size of our Company does not provide for the desired segregation of duty control functions, and we do not have the required level of documentation of our monitoring and control procedures. Currently, our financial constraints prevent us from fully implementing the internal controls prescribed by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

 

Changes in internal controls.

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

   

The Company has taken limited steps to meet its Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Section 404 compliance requirements and implement procedures to assure financial reports are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and therefore fairly represent the results and condition of the Company. We are not materially compliant with the Section 404 requirements due to economic constraints.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

None.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

Readers should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described in ITEM 1A in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, filed with the SEC before deciding whether to invest in shares of our common stock. See also risks discussed above under the section on “Factors That May Affect Future Results” and “Internal Controls”.

 

Our failure to successfully address the risks and uncertainties described in our 2017 Form 10-K would have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and/or results of operations, and the trading price of our common stock may decline and investors may lose all or part of their investment. We cannot assure you that we will successfully address these risks or other unknown risks that may affect our business.

 

As an enterprise engaged in the development of new technology, our business is inherently risky.  Our common shares are considered speculative during the development of our new business operations. 

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

 

On or about May 11, 2018, the Company issued 28,358,000 shares of common stock as settlement of deferred compensation and notes payable to the officers and directors of the Company at that time, and in recognition of the upcoming cancellation of the PSF, Inc. preferred shares in connection with the Merger described above. The issuances to the former officers and directors of the Company were made in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act, and Rule 506(b) promulgated thereunder, as the shareholders were considered accredited investors, there was no general solicitation, and the transactions did not involve a public offering.
