PART I

 

ITEM 1. BUSINESS

 

Trutankless, Inc. was incorporated in the state of Nevada on March 7, 2008. The Company is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona and currently operates through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Bollente, Inc., a Nevada corporation incorporated on December 3, 2009.

 

Trutankless is involved in research and development, sales, marketing, of a high quality, whole-house, smart electric tankless water heater that is more energy efficient than conventional products. Management anticipates the Company’s second generation of Trutankless water heaters, with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee capability. Trutankless’ proprietary app is expected to launch into the iOS and Android store, and will augment other products in the home automation space, including company’s leak detection and prevention devices which are also in development in the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Notation Labs, Inc. which was founded in 2020.

 

During the year ending 2021, the Company filed to spin off its wholly owned subsidiary, Notation Labs, Inc. with shareholders of the Company to receive pro rata ownership of the spun off company in the form of an equity dividend distribution. Common shares of Notation Labs, Inc. were issued to shareholders of record December 10th, 2021. The spin off occurred subsequent to the year ending 2021 on January 24th, 2022, with each shareholder of record receiving 1 share in the subsidiary for every 4 shares in the Company held as of the Record Date.

 

Overview of Potential Markets and Summary of Marketing Plan

 

Management intends to focus on the United States residential market initially. For decades Americans have used only tank type water heaters, however the market is increasingly towards alternatives like tankless water heaters. Many brands are powered by natural gas, while several others use electricity. Almost half of American homes do not have natural gas available and there has been a trend in many markets towards renewable and cleaner energy alternatives to provide the energy to operate water heaters for the residential and commercial markets in North America.

 

The company’s focus markets favor electric water heaters, of which electric tankless have additional benefits over gas powered models because they can be installed almost anywhere in a home (closets, attics, utility rooms, etc.) where hot water is needed. The lack of exhaust, noise, and a need for combustible fuel improves flexibility of floor plan design for builders, architects, and remodelers. In addition, gas tankless water heaters may not be suitable for many applications due to challenges with adequate fuel supply, the need for exhaust vents with specific safety and regulatory requirements. Despite these issues, gas tankless water heaters have historically enjoyed significant growth in North America because of the efficiency and performance they provide.

 

The company will continue to focus its efforts to develop products that satisfy growing demand in the electric tankless market. Additionally, the company hopes to launch additional products well suited to its key customers in the repair and replacement wholesale market, as well as home builders and companies associated with new construction in the multifamily and commercial markets.

 

Home Automation Overview

 

Key trends in the home automation space, which is estimated to reach $46.22 Billion worldwide by 2025, have been driven by consumers’ desire for efficiency and lifestyle improvements. Companies like Nest have helped to introduce the Internet of Things to appliances with a direct impact on how users interact with traditional household appliances and have the ability to reduce energy usage. The trend towards integration with voice assistants is also on the rise with key industry leaders like Alexa and Google Assistant playing larger roles in the home automation industry. Insurance and utility companies have joined this trend by partnering with home automation manufacturers by leveraging different devices to build insurance products including discounts and rebates. While home security and safety monitoring are expected to continue to dominate the overall market, management anticipates energy management and HVAC controls and monitors will be one of the fastest growing markets in the U.S. which accounts for 36% of global demand.

Trutankless was designed to replace inefficient tank water heating technology, which is second to HVAC in energy consumption for most homes. Combined with Wi-Fi capabilities, the system can not only save energy it has the ability to inform users and property owners of energy use, water use, and potential issues like leaks or other failures in the plumbing system. Management plans to roll out additional technologies in the future that can integrate with the Company’s trutankless smart apps. Currently, the product has the ability to notify homeowners in the event of water flow while the system is set in away mode. Leak detection, leak damage mitigation, and hot water recirculation for instant hot water at the point of use are becoming major trends in the home automation space. Management believes new products can be introduced into its growing wholesale network to augment trutankless’ momentum and harness growing trends to a fresh audience of plumbing and other home service professionals.

 

Homebuilders and plumbing companies have begun selling homes with more technology integrations. The company expects to gain market share based on its ability to offer tech forward products in the wholesale market which supplies plumbing, HVAC, and electrical service companies in the future.

 

Tankless Industry Overview

 

The U.S. gas tankless water heater market is dominated by several foreign and domestic brands; U.S. electric tankless water heater market is dominated by four companies; Stiebel-Eltron, Rheem (Eemax/EcoSmart), A.O.Smith, and Bosch, while tank manufacturers maintain the largest market share of the overall water heater market. Several Japanese and European manufacturers have begun marketing products in the United States, and since 2003, gas tankless products have experienced dramatic growth. Electric tankless systems have not experienced comparable growth due to several factors, primarily product performance, capacity, product quality and electrical power supply and installation issues.

 

Manufacturers of tank heaters have a competitive advantage due largely to their product categories long established use, name recognition, established distribution and brand position in the marketplace. Many plumbers and other building industry professionals were opposed to changing brands or to tankless systems because many tankless water heaters have been poorly designed in the past. As a result, there is a perception among some contractors that these water heaters are more complicated and generally less dependable than traditional tank heaters. This perception is often passed along to consumers when making buying decisions or inquiring about switching to a tankless water heater.

 

While we believe that our products will have superior performance, such as endless hot water, superior longevity, greater efficiency and lower “life-cycle” costs than traditional tank water heaters, the Company’s success will depend to a large degree on the successful conversion of traditional water heater buyers to tankless water heater buyers. The acquisition price of tankless water heaters (both gas and electric) is greater than traditional tank water heaters, but the overall cost of ownership will be less than that of traditional tank technologies under typical circumstances. Although the public’s awareness of tankless systems has grown in recent years, and continued growth in the sector is suggestive of increasing awareness of tankless as a viable solution for American homeowners.

 

Our marketing and promotion plans have been developed to increase the awareness of the Company’s brand as the preferred option to traditional tank systems. Trutankless intends to position itself and its brand to capitalize on the shift to more sustainable construction materials and more efficient systems and appliances.

Our trutankless® water heaters are available through wholesale plumbing distributors, including Ferguson, Hajoca, WinSupply locations, Morrison Supply, and several regional distributors. A partial listing of wholesalers may be found on our website (www.trutankless.com).

 

Our trutankless® water heaters are designed to provide an endless hot water supply because they are designed to heat water as it flows through the system. We believe that our products are capable of higher temperature rise than competitive units at given flow rates because of its improved design and greater efficiency. Our trutankless® water heaters can save energy and reduce operating costs compared to tank systems because unlike tanks, if there is no hot water demand, no energy is being used. In addition, we intend to improve life-cycle costs with an improved design conceived not only to increase efficiency, but also the longevity of our products versus competitive units. Generally, a typical tank water heater lasts about 9 years, whereas gas tankless systems may last longer, but requires more routine maintenance. Our product line is designed to last longer than tank water heaters without any routine maintenance required under most conditions.

 

We created a custom heat exchanger for our trutankless® product line that utilizes our patented technology to heat water as it flows through the system, which means customers need not worry about running out of hot water. We believe we’ve selected the best materials available and a collection of exclusive design elements and features to maximize capacity, minimize energy use, and provide a truly maintenance free experience.

Growth Strategy

 

Trutankless’ product launched in the first quarter of 2014 and was sold through the wholesale plumbing distribution channel. Gas tankless manufacturers’ support of this sales channel was critical in their ability to quickly capture appreciable market share in the replacement market estimated to be larger than $4 Billion nationwide. No electric tankless has been available solely through wholesale distributors which welcomed the arrival of Trutankless. Trutankless’ sales and service training programs geared towards plumbers and contractors are the primary focal point of the Company’s sales strategy to quickly scale sales and educate distributors, plumbers, builders, and contractors.

 

The Company is also leveraging online marketing strategies and social media. By continually building an immersive and educational web experience at www.trutankless.com. Trutankless is efficiently building brand awareness among consumers. Launch efforts are expected focused in Arizona, Texas, and the Southeast which accounts for over 1,000,000 electric water heater shipments annually. Licensing and co-branding opportunities are being assessed, since strategic partnerships would eliminate the channel conflicts that have historically obstructed previous electric tankless entries in the marketplace. In the future we may pursue co-branding opportunities to accelerate sales of Trutankless’ products through retail channels.

 

In addition, we have determined that as part of our growth strategy, we will seek to partner with or acquire entities operating in various fields, with a bias towards green and “clean-tech” sectors. Our management has experience in marketing, product launches, business development strategies, and certain other areas specific to the success of growth companies. We will operate with a view towards identifying acquisition candidates as we seek the rights to provide the market with products and services geared toward environmental responsibility, innovative technology in the plumbing industry, and home automation technology.

 

We have identified several agents who are well suited to provide consulting to high-growth technology and consumer products companies. We are currently seeking partnership with companies in the green and “clean-tech” sectors possessing technologies, products, or expertise that would help create additional revenues and assist the Company with our own development efforts and product line expansion in the wholesale and retail plumbing channels.

 

Margin Expansion

 

Cost reduction measures, including outsourcing of key components and certain quality control testing protocols, are currently being undertaken on an expedited basis to rapidly reduce costs and improve manufacturing scalability. Such reductions are expected to take place in stages over the next eighteen months, and we believe may result in gross sales margins approaching 50% or more.

 

Market Outlook

 

Trutankless entered the market in front of the largest water heater replacement cycle ever at a time when homeowners are seeking ways to reduce their carbon footprint without sacrificing comfort. Additionally, statistics have shown a trend towards electric water heating in new construction markets. Florida, Texas, and Arizona, and areas where electric water heaters dominate the market, have been epicenters of the residential new construction strength in the US. In the new construction market, builders are increasingly marketing “green” features and trutankless fits well along with other energy saving innovations.

 

In commercial markets, we feel that our commercial line of trutankless products are well suited to thousands of customers in the retail, quick serve and fast casual restaurants, hair salons, education. In addition to residential new construction and replacement markets, we feel the commercial applications for which our products are appropriate represent a large portion of the commercial water heater market.

 

In April 2015, the Federal Government mandated that standard electric water heaters over 55 gallons may not be sold (started effectively forcing the market to use alternative technologies like tankless water heaters. The “electrification” of the overall appliance market has also begun due to the rapid progression of energy generation technologies with more efficient and renewable energy sources seen as a growing and sustainable trend.

Investment Analysis

 

Trutankless has entered the market with a product that has enjoyed significant trends towards tankless water heating to displace gas tankless water heaters thus far. As a result of the market share growth of gas tankless, we believe TKLS is poised to produce exceptional results in the significant electric water heating market. Management has plans to significantly reduce the cost of goods sold and develop other innovations to supplement existing offerings which will be sold through the existing sales channels and reps which to help ensure sustainable growth over the next 3-5 years.

On November 24, 2021, we announced that the Company set the record date and distribution date for the Spin Off of Notation Labs, Inc. by which our shareholders received the shares representing ownership of Notation Labs, Inc.

 

Target Markets

 

The United States market for residential tank water heaters in 2019 was more than 8.5 million units according to data released by the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). Almost 50% of those shipments were electric water heaters, and the company has found in comparing those statistics with government data, that approximately 90% of tank water heaters shipped in 2019 were intended for “replacement” installations.

 

Trutankless is initially marketing its products to contractors, home builders, remodelers and distributors in the southern and western U.S. These areas of the country have been selected because of generally higher ground water temperatures, which improves the effects of the performance and capacity of all brands of tankless water heaters. This area of the country also traditionally has the largest share of population growth and new housing starts, accounting for almost two-thirds of all housing starts in 2019, according to recent data. Additionally, the southern U.S., and specifically the southeastern U.S., has the highest usage of electric water heaters.

 

Distribution Plan

 

Initially, we will be distributing our first product line throughout the southern and western U.S. using an existing network of plumbing and electrical wholesalers (distributors), manufacturers’ representatives and dealers. We believe that we will continue building existing partnerships with major companies in the building and plumbing industries to rapidly expand awareness of Trutankless and our products in the water heater market in the U.S and Canada.

 

Sales will continue to be pursued through the following channels:

 

 

1.

Regional and national plumbing and electrical wholesalers (also called “distributors”);

 

2.

Plumbers and electricians on a direct basis, in those areas where wholesalers have not yet been set up; and,

 

3.

Builders on a direct basis, in those areas where wholesalers & mechanical contractors have not yet been set up.

 

We will expand sales of the product further by marketing the product directly to consumers over the internet with a series of aggressive and ongoing marketing initiatives. We intend to market to industry professionals and end-users through more traditional marketing efforts as well, including print advertising, attendance of select national trade shows, and attendance of select regional consumer shows. We also expect Trutankless will be successful in providing education, training, and support to our sales and installer networks as part of our distribution and marketing efforts.

Table of Contents

 

We believe our products will be a differentiating factor for industry professionals and builders as they market to their customers. Additionally, our electric tankless products are expected to provide these professionals and their companies with a mechanism to increase revenue and improve gross margin as compared to more traditional water heating products.

 

Employees

 

We currently have six full-time employees, including our two officers, and two part-time employees. We expect to increase the number of employees to expand our sales and technical staff. We are using and will continue to use independent consultants and contractors to perform various professional services. We believe that this use of third-party service providers may enhance our ability to contain operating, general expenses and capital costs.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

If we are unable to attract and retain key personnel, our business could be harmed.

 

If any of our key employees were to leave, we could face substantial difficulty in hiring qualified successors and could experience a loss in productivity while any successor obtains the necessary training and experience. Our employment relationships are generally at-will. We cannot assure that one or more key employees will not leave in the future. We intend to continue to hire additional highly qualified personnel, but may not be able to attract, assimilate or retain qualified personnel in the future. Any failure to attract, integrate, motivate and retain these employees could harm our business.

 

We are subject to significant competition from large, well-funded companies.

 

The industry we compete in is characterized by intense competition and rapid and significant technological advancements. Many companies are working in a number of areas similar to our primary field of interest to develop new products; some of which may be similar and/or competitive to our products.

 

Most of the companies with which we compete have substantially greater financial, technical, manufacturing, marketing, sales and distribution and other resources than us. If a competitor enters the tankless water heater industry and establishes a greater market share in the direct-selling channel, our business and operating results will be adversely affected.

 

There is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. If we do not continue as a going concern, investors will lose their entire investment.

 

Our financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to raise additional capital from the sale of common stock and, ultimately, the achievement of significant operating revenues within one year of the date the financial statements are issued. If we are unable to continue as a going concern, stockholders will lose their investment.  We will be required to seek additional capital to fund future growth and expansion. No assurance can be given that such financing will be available or, if available, that it will be on commercially favorable terms. Moreover, favorable financing may be dilutive to investors.

The outbreak of a highly infectious or contagious disease, could adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flow, and limit our ability to obtain additional financing.

 

The spread of highly infectious or contagious diseases could cause quarantines, business shutdowns, reduction in business activity and financial transactions, labor shortages, supply chain interruptions, increased unemployment and commercial property vacancy rates, reduced ability and incentives for some property owners to make mortgage payments, and overall economic and financial market instability, all of which may result a decrease in our business, sell our products and services and cause our customers to be unable to make scheduled loan payments. Therefore, to the extent that economic activity, business conditions and conditions in the financial markets in which we operate deteriorate as a result of such disruptions, our sales, delinquencies, foreclosures and credit losses may materially increase. Such conditions are likely to exacerbate many of the risks described elsewhere in this “Risks Related to Our Business” section. Unfavorable economic conditions may also make it more difficult for us to close new sales and obtain additional financing. Furthermore, such conditions have and may continue to cause the collateral values associated our loans to decline. In addition, a prolonged period of very low interest rates could reduce our net income and have a material adverse impact on our cash flows and the market value of our investments.

 

We will require additional financing in order to implement our business plan. In the event we are unable to acquire additional financing, we may not be able to implement our business plan resulting in a loss of revenues and ultimately the loss of your investment.

 

Due to our very recent start-up nature, we will have to incur the costs of product development, import expenses, advertising, in addition to hiring new employees and commencing additional marketing activities for product sales and distribution. To fully implement our business plan we will require substantial additional funding.

 

We will need to raise additional funds to expand our operations. We plan to raise additional funds through private placements, registered offerings, debt financing or other sources to maintain and expand our operations. Adequate funds for this purpose on terms favorable to us may not be available, and if available, on terms significantly more adverse to us than are manageable. Without new funding, we may be only partially successful or completely unsuccessful in implementing our business plan, and our stockholders may lose part or all of their investment.

 

Our internal controls may be inadequate, which could cause our financial reporting to be unreliable and lead to misinformation being disseminated to the public.

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. As defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f), internal control over financial reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the principal executive and principal financial officer and effected by the board of directors, management and other personnel, 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 and includes those policies and procedures that: (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company;

 

(ii) 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 (iii) 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.

 

We have two individuals performing the functions of all officers and directors. Mr. Stebbins, our president and CEO, and Mr. Orr, our secretary and treasurer, have developed our internal control procedures and are responsible for monitoring and ensuring compliance with those procedures. As a result, our internal controls may be inadequate or ineffective, which could cause our financial reporting to be unreliable and lead to misinformation being disseminated to the public. Investors relying upon this misinformation may make an uninformed investment decision.

 

We depend on certain key employees, and believe the loss of any of them would have a material adverse effect on our business.

 

We will be dependent on the continued services of our management team, as well as our outside consultants. While we have no assurance that our current management will produce successful operations, the loss of such personnel could have an adverse effect on meeting our production and financial performance objectives. We have no assurance that we will not lose the services of these or other key personnel and may not be able to timely replace any personnel if we do lose their services.

Our ability to attract qualified sales and marketing personnel is critical to our future success, and any inability to attract such personnel could harm our business.

 

Our future success may also depend on our ability to attract and retain additional qualified design and sales and marketing personnel. We face competition for these individuals and may not be able to attract or retain these employees, which could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations and financial condition.

 

RISKS RELATED TO OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND TECHNOLOGY

 

If we fail to secure or protect our intellectual property rights, our products and competitors may be able to use our designs, each of which could harm our reputation, reduce our revenues and increase our costs.

 

We will rely on intellectual property laws to protect our proprietary rights with respect to our trademarks and pending patent. We are susceptible to injury from patent infringement, which may harm our reputation for producing high-quality products or force us to incur additional expense in enforcing our rights. It is difficult and expensive to detect and prevent patent infringement. Despite our efforts to protect our intellectual property, some may attempt to violate our intellectual property rights by using our trademarks and imitating our products, which could potentially harm our brand, reputation and financial condition.

 

We may face significant expenses and liability in connection with the protection of our intellectual property rights. Infringement claims and lawsuits likely would be expensive to resolve and would require substantial management time and resources. Any adverse determination in litigation could subject us to the loss of our rights to a particular trademark, which could prevent us from manufacturing, selling, or using certain aspects of our products or could subject us to substantial liability, any of which would harm our results of operations. Aside from infringement claims against us, if we fail to secure or protect our intellectual property rights, our competitors may be able to use our designs. If we are unable to successfully protect our intellectual property rights or resolve any conflicts, our results of operations may be harmed.

 

Our reliance on intellectual property and other proprietary information subjects us to the risk that these key ingredients of our business could be copied by competitors.

 

Our success depends, in significant part, on the proprietary nature of our technology. If a competitor is able to reproduce or otherwise capitalize on our technology, despite the safeguards we have in place, it may be difficult, expensive or impossible for us to obtain necessary legal protection. In addition to patent protection of intellectual property rights, we consider elements of our product designs and processes to be proprietary and confidential. We rely upon employee, consultant and vendor non-disclosure agreements and contractual provisions and a system of internal safeguards to protect our proprietary information. However, any of our registered or unregistered intellectual property rights may be challenged or exploited by others in the industry, which might harm our operating results.

 

RISKS RELATING TO OUR COMMON STOCK

 

Because our common stock could remain under $5.00 per share, it could continue to be deemed a low-priced “Penny” stock, an investment in our common stock should be considered high risk and subject to marketability restrictions.

 

Since our common stock is currently under $5.00 per share, it is considered a penny stock, as defined in Rule 3a51-1 under the Securities Exchange Act, it will be more difficult for investors to liquidate their investment even if and when a market develops for the common stock. If the trading price of the common stock stays below $5.00 per share, trading in the common stock is subject to the penny stock rules of the Securities Exchange Act specified in rules 15g-1 through 15g-10. Those rules require broker-dealers, before effecting transactions in any penny stock, to:

 

 

·

Deliver to the customer, and obtain a written receipt for, a disclosure document;

 

·

Disclose certain price information about the stock;

 

·

Disclose the amount of compensation received by the broker-dealer or any associated person of the broker-dealer;

 

·

Send monthly statements to customers with market and price information about the penny stock; and

 

·

In some circumstances, approve the purchaser’s account under certain standards and deliver written statements to the customer with information specified in the rules.

Table of Contents

 

Consequently, the penny stock rules may restrict the ability or willingness of broker-dealers to accept the common stock for deposit into an account or, if accepted for deposit, to sell the common stock and these restrictions may affect the ability of holders to sell their common stock in the secondary market and the price at which such holders can sell any such securities. These additional procedures could also limit our ability to raise additional capital in the future.

 

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

 

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

 

Rule 15c2-11 as amended, effective on September 28, 2021, may also limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our stock.

 

Our common stock currently trades on the Expert Market Tier of OTC Markets Group, Inc. under the symbol “TKLS” and is labeled as “Delinquent SEC Reporting.” The OTC Market is a network of security dealers who buy and sell stock. The dealers are connected by a computer network that provides information on current “bids” and “asks,” as well as volume information. Stock on the Expert Market is not eligible for proprietary broker-dealer quotations. All quotes in stock on the Expert Market reflect unsolicited customer orders. Unsolicited-Only stocks, such as ours, have a higher risk of wider spreads between bid and asked quotations, increased volatility, and price dislocations. Investors may have difficulty selling our stock. An initial review by a broker-dealer under SEC Rule15c2-11 is required for brokers to publish competing quotes and provide continuous market making in our stock. The Expert Market serves broker-dealer pricing and investor best execution needs. Quotations in Expert Market securities are restricted from public viewing. OTC Markets Group designates securities for quoting on the Expert Market when the issuer has not disclosed its financial information for a period of slightly in excess of six months or is otherwise not making current information publicly available under SEC Rule 15c2-11, or when the security is otherwise restricted from public quoting. The common stock previously traded on the Pink Tier of OTC Markets Group, Inc.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

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

 

On September 14th, 2021, a Company subsidiary received a demand for arbitration through the American Arbitration Association pursuant to a manufacturing services agreement with Cypress Holdings Ltd d/b/a Cypress Industries alleging Breach of Contract for non-payment of invoices. The Company believes the claim is without merit and has filed a defense and counter claim. After Cypress Industries failed to cure many Breaches of its manufacturing services agreement, including failure to deliver a single Trutankless unit, the Company cancelled its purchase order with Cypress Industries. The Company is seeking substantial relief, including lost profit, due to the Breach of Contract, Fraudulent Inducement, Misrepresentation, Unjust Enrichment, and Negligence of Cypress Industries. The Company subsequently settled this matter on February 28, 2022 and purchased material and unfinished goods from Cypress Holdings, Ltd d/b/a Cypress Industries with an estimated value of approximately $700,000 for $300,000.

ITEM 5. MARKET FOR COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS AND SMALL BUSINESS ISSUER PURCHASE OF EQUITY SECURITIES

 

Holders of Common Stock

 

As of November 14, 2022 there were approximately 445 stockholders of record of our common stock. This number does not include shares held by brokerage clearing houses, depositories, or others in unregistered form.

 

Dividends

 

The payment of dividends is subject to the discretion of our Board of Directors and will depend, among other things, upon our earnings, our capital requirements, our financial condition, and other relevant factors. We have not paid or declared any dividends upon our common stock since our inception and, by reason of our present financial status and our contemplated financial requirements, do not anticipate paying any dividends upon our common stock in the foreseeable future.

 

We have never declared or paid any cash dividends. We currently do not intend to pay cash dividends in the foreseeable future on the shares of common stock. We intend to reinvest any earnings in the development and expansion of our business. Any cash dividends in the future to common stockholders will be payable when, as and if declared by our Board of Directors, based upon the Board’s assessment of:

 

 

·

our financial condition;

 

·

earnings;

 

·

need for funds;

 

·

capital requirements;

 

·

prior claims of preferred stock to the extent issued and outstanding; and

 

·

other factors, including any applicable laws.

 

Therefore, there can be no assurance that any dividends on the common stock will ever be paid.

ITEM 6. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA

 

This item is not applicable, as we are considered a smaller reporting company.

 

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

 

Background

 

Trutankless Inc. was incorporated in the state of Nevada on March 7, 2008. The Company is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona and currently operates through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Bollente, Inc., a Nevada corporation incorporated on December 3, 2009.

 

Trutankless is involved in sales, marketing, research and development of a high quality, whole-house, smart electric tankless water heater that is more energy efficient than conventional products. See “Item 1. Business.”

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Revenues

 

In the year ended December 31, 2021 we generated $246,032 in revenues, as compared to $1,661,278 in revenues in the prior year. The decrease in sales was attributable to less sales of our trutankless® residential and light commercial products. Cost of goods sold was $127,669, as compared to $1,304,946 in the prior year.

 

Expenses

 

Operating expenses totaled $11,518,635 during the year ended December 31, 2021, as compared to $7,246,905 in the prior year. In the year ended December 31, 2021, our expenses primarily consisted of General and Administrative of $10,617,832, Research and Development of $354,045 and Professional fees of $546,758.

 

General and administrative fees increased $3,831,932 from the year ended December 31, 2020, to the year ended December 31, 2021. General and administrative fees increased due to an increase in consulting fees associated with business development.

 

Research and Development increased $166,461 from the year ended December 31, 2020, to the year ended December 31, 2021. Research and Development fees decreased due to development of new products.

 

Professional fees increased $273,337 from the year ended December 31, 2020, to the year ended December 31, 2021. Professional fees increased due to an increase in legal and accounting fees associated with the normal operations of the business.

 

Other Expenses

 

Other expense increased $2,302,982 to $5,979,498 in the year ended December 31, 2021, from $3,676,516 for the year ended December 31, 2020. The increase was the result of the loss on extinguishment of notes payable and interest expense during the year.

Table of Contents

 

Net Loss

 

In the year ended December 31, 2021, we generated a net loss of $17,379,770, an increase of $6,812,681 from $10,567,089 for the year ended December 31, 2020. This increase was attributable to an increase in stock based consulting payments and interest expense.

 

Going Concern

 

The financial statements included in this filing have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles that contemplate the continuance of the Company as a going concern.

 

Management evaluated all relevant conditions and events that are reasonably known or reasonably knowable, in the aggregate, as of the date the consolidated financial statements are issued and determined that substantial doubt exists about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to generate revenues and raise capital. The Company has not generated sufficient revenues from product sales to provide sufficient cash flows to enable the Company to finance its operations internally. As of December 31, 2021, the Company had $59,726 cash on hand. At December 31, 2021, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $60,372,841. For the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company had a net loss of $17,379,770, and cash used in operations of $2,431,848. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year from the date of filing.

 

Over the next twelve months management plans raise additional capital and to invest its working capital resources in sales and marketing in order to increase the distribution and demand for its products. If the Company fails to generate sufficient revenue and obtain additional capital to continue at its expected level of operations, the Company may be forced to scale back or discontinue its sales and marketing efforts. However, there is no guarantee the Company will generate sufficient revenues or raise capital to continue operations. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At December 31, 2021, we had an accumulated deficit of $60,372,841. Primarily because of our history of operating losses and our recording of note payables, we have a working capital deficiency of $3,582,297 at December 31, 2021. Losses have been funded primarily through issuance of common stock and borrowings from our stockholders and third-party debt. As of December 31, 2021, we had $59,726 in cash, $5,424 in accounts receivable, $119,418 in inventory.

The following table provides detailed information about our net cash flow for all financial statement periods presented in this Annual Report. To date, we have financed our operations through the issuance of stock and borrowings.

Operating activities

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $2,431,848 for the year ended December 31, 2021, as compared to $1,474,939 used in operating activities for the same period in 2020. The increase in net cash used in operating activities was primarily due to lower volume of units sold and increase in consulting contract cost.

 

Investing activities

 

Net cash used in investing activities was $25,298 for the year ended December 31, 2021, as compared to $0 used in investing activities for the same period in 2020. The increase in net cash used in investing activities was primarily due to the purchase of equipment during 2021.

 

Financing activities

 

Net cash provided by financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $2,365,244, as compared to $1,622,225 for the same period of 2020. The increase of net cash provided by financing activities was mainly attributable more cash raised from debt, equity, and royalty financing.

 

Ongoing Funding Requirements

 

As of December 31, 2021, we continue to use traditional and/or debt financing to provide the capital we need to run the business. It is possible that we may need additional funding to enable us to fund our operating expenses and capital expenditures requirements.

 

Until such time, if ever, as we can generate substantial product revenues, we intend to finance our cash needs through a combination of equity offerings, debt financings, collaborations, strategic alliances and licensing arrangements. There can be no assurance that any of those sources of funding will be available when needed on acceptable terms or at all. To the extent that we raise additional capital through the sale of equity or convertible debt securities, the ownership interests of existing stockholders will be diluted, and the terms of these securities may include liquidation or other preferences that adversely affect the rights of existing stockholders. Debt financing, if available, may involve agreements that include covenants limiting or restricting our ability to take specific actions, such as incurring additional debt, making capital expenditures or declaring dividends. If we raise funds through collaborations, strategic alliances or licensing arrangements with third parties, we may have to relinquish valuable rights to our technologies, future revenue streams, research programs or product candidates or to grant licenses on terms that may not be favorable to us.

 

If we are unable to raise additional funds through equity or debt financings or relationships with third parties when needed or on acceptable terms, we may be required to delay, limit, reduce or terminate our product development or future commercialization efforts; abandon our business strategy of growth through acquisitions; or grant rights to develop and market product candidates that we would otherwise prefer to develop and market ourselves.

 

Critical Accounting Polices

 

In December 2001, the SEC requested that all registrants list their most “critical accounting polices” in the Management Discussion and Analysis. The SEC indicated that a “critical accounting policy” is one which is both important to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and results, and requires management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. Our critical accounting policies are disclosed in Note 1 of our audited consolidated financial statements included in the Form 10-K filed with the SEC.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have 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 that is material to investors.

ITEM 9A (T) CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, Michael Stebbins, has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) as of the end of the period covered by this Report. Based on his evaluation, Mr. Stebbins concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are designed at a reasonable assurance level and are effective to provide reasonable assurance that information we are required to disclose in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and principal financial officer, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control, as is defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These internal controls are designed to provide reasonable assurance that the reported financial information is presented fairly, that disclosures are adequate and that the judgments inherent in the preparation of financial statements are reasonable. There are inherent limitations in the effectiveness of any system of internal controls, including the possibility of human error and overriding of controls.  Consequently, an effective internal control system can only provide reasonable, not absolute, assurance with respect to reporting financial information.

 

Our internal control over financial reporting includes policies and procedures that: (i) pertain to maintaining records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect our transactions; (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary for preparation of our financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and the receipts and expenditures of company assets are made and in accordance with our management and directors authorization; and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding the prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements.

 

Management has undertaken an assessment of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the framework and criteria established in the Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”).  Based upon this evaluation, management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of December 31, 2021.

 

Our management identified the following material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting, which are indicative of many small companies with limited personnel:

 

 

·

inadequate controls over maintenance of records

 

·

deficiencies in the period-end reporting process and accounting policies;

 

·

inadequate internal controls relating to the authorization, recognition, capture, and review of transactions, facts, circumstances, and events that could have a material impact on the Company’s financial reporting process

Indemnification of Directors and Officers

 

Our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws both provide for the indemnification of our officers and directors to the fullest extent permitted by Nevada law.

 

Limitation of Liability of Directors

 

Pursuant to the Nevada General Corporation Law, our Articles of Incorporation exclude personal liability for our Directors for monetary damages based upon any violation of their fiduciary duties as Directors, except as to liability for any breach of the duty of loyalty, acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, or any transaction from which a Director receives an improper personal benefit. This exclusion of liability does not limit any right which a Director may have to be indemnified and does not affect any Director’s liability under federal or applicable state securities laws. We have agreed to indemnify our directors against expenses, judgments, and amounts paid in settlement in connection with any claim against a Director if he acted in good faith and in a manner he believed to be in our best interests.

 

Election of Directors and Officers

 

Directors are elected to serve until the next annual meeting of stockholders and until their successors have been elected and qualified. Officers are appointed to serve until the meeting of the Board of Directors following the next annual meeting of stockholders and until their successors have been elected and qualified.

 

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), requires our executive officers and directors, and persons who beneficially own more than ten percent of our common stock, to file initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership with the SEC. Executive officers, directors and greater-than-ten-percent beneficial owners are required by SEC regulations to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file. Based upon a review of the copies of such forms furnished to us and written representations from our executive officers and directors, we believe that as of the date of this filing they were current in their filings.

 

Code of Ethics

 

A code of ethics relates to written standards that are reasonably designed to deter wrongdoing and to promote:

 

 

1.

Honest and ethical conduct, including the ethical handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and professional relationships;

 

2.

Full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that are filed with, or submitted to, the Commission and in other public communications made by an issuer;

 

3.

Compliance with applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations;

 

4.

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

 

5.

Accountability for adherence to the code.

 

We have not adopted a corporate code of ethics that applies to our principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer or controller, or persons performing similar functions.

 

Our decision to not adopt such a code of ethics results from our having a small management for the Company. We believe that the limited interaction which occurs having such a small management structure for the Company eliminates the current need for such a code, in that violations of such a code would be reported to the party generating the violation.

Table of Contents

 

Corporate Governance

 

We currently do not have standing audit, nominating and compensation committees of the board of directors, or committees performing similar functions. Until formal committees are established, our entire board of directors, perform the same functions as an audit, nominating and compensation committee.

 

Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings

 

To the best of our knowledge, none of our directors or executive officers has, during the past five years:

 

 

·

been convicted in a criminal proceeding or been subject to a pending criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations and other minor offences);

 

·

had any bankruptcy petition filed by or against the business or property of the person, or of any partnership, corporation or business association of which he was a general partner or executive officer, either at the time of the bankruptcy filing or within two years prior to that time;

 

·

been subject to any order, judgment, or decree, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any court of competent jurisdiction or federal or state authority, permanently or temporarily enjoining, barring, suspending or otherwise limiting, his involvement in any type of business, securities, futures, commodities, investment, banking, savings and loan, or insurance activities, or to be associated with persons engaged in any such activity;

 

·

been found by a court of competent jurisdiction in a civil action or by the SEC or the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to have violated a federal or state securities or commodities law, and the judgment has not been reversed, suspended, or vacated;

 

·

been the subject of, or a party to, any federal or state judicial or administrative order, judgment, decree, or finding, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated (not including any settlement of a civil proceeding among private litigants), relating to an alleged violation of any federal or state securities or commodities law or regulation, any law or regulation respecting financial institutions or insurance companies including, but not limited to, a temporary or permanent injunction, order of disgorgement or restitution, civil money penalty or temporary or permanent cease-and-desist order, or removal or prohibition order, or any law or regulation prohibiting mail or wire fraud or fraud in connection with any business entity; or

 

·

been the subject of, or a party to, any sanction or order, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any self-regulatory organization (as defined in Section 3(a)(26) of the Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78c(a)(26))), any registered entity (as defined in Section 1(a)(29) of the Commodity Exchange Act (7 U.S.C. 1(a)(29))), or any equivalent exchange, association, entity or organization that has disciplinary authority over its members or persons associated with a member.

 

ITEM 11. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

 

Overview of Compensation Program

 

We currently have not appointed members to serve on the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors. Until a formal committee is established, our entire Board of Directors has responsibility for establishing, implementing and continually monitoring adherence with the Company’s compensation philosophy. The Board of Directors ensures that the total compensation paid to the executives is fair, reasonable and competitive.

 

Compensation Philosophy and Objectives

 

The Board of Directors believes that the most effective executive compensation program is one that is designed to reward the achievement of specific annual, long-term and strategic goals by the Company and that aligns executives’ interests with those of the stockholders by rewarding performance above established goals, with the ultimate objective of improving stockholder value. As a result of the size of the Company and only having two officers, the Board evaluates both performance and compensation on an informal basis. Upon hiring additional executives, the Board intends to establish a Compensation Committee to evaluate both performance and compensation to ensure that the Company maintains its ability to attract and retain superior employees in key positions and that compensation provided to key employees remains competitive relative to the compensation paid to similarly-situated executives of peer companies. To that end, the Board believes executive compensation packages provided by the Company to its executives, including the named executive officers, should include both cash and stock-based compensation that reward performance as measured against established goals.

Role of Executive Officers in Compensation Decisions

ITEM 12. SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS

 

The following table sets forth information, to the best of our knowledge, about the beneficial ownership of our common stock on November 13, 2022 relating to the beneficial ownership of our common stock by those persons known to beneficially own more than 5% of our capital stock and by our directors and executive officers.  The percentage of beneficial ownership for the following table is based on 20,367,477shares of common stock outstanding.

 

Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission and does not necessarily indicate beneficial ownership for any other purpose. Under these rules, beneficial ownership includes those shares of common stock over which the stockholder has sole or shared voting or investment power. It also includes shares of common stock that the stockholder has a right to acquire within 60 days after November 13, 2022, pursuant to options, warrants, conversion privileges or other right. The percentage ownership of the outstanding common stock, however, is based on the assumption, expressly required by the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, that only the person or entity whose ownership is being reported has converted options or warrants into shares of our common stock.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and

Stockholders of Trutankless, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Trutankless, Inc.  (the Company) as of December 31, 2020, and the related statements of income, stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for the period ended December 31, 2020, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the financial statements). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2020, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the period ended December 31, 2020, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Going Concern

 

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, the Company has not generated sufficient revenues to provide sufficient cash flow as of December 31, 2020, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans concerning these matters are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. See Critical Audit Matters.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

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

 

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

 

Our audit included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audit provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Critical Audit Matters

 

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

Revenue Recognition - Refer to Note 1 to the financial statements

 

Critical Audit Matter Description

 

The Company recognizes revenue upon transfer of control of promised products or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for those products or services.

 

Significant judgment is exercised by the Company in determining revenue recognition for these customer agreements, and includes the following:

 

 

·

Determination of whether products and services are considered distinct performance obligations that should be accounted for separately.

 

·

The pattern of delivery (i.e., timing of when revenue is recognized) for each distinct performance obligation.

 

·

Identification and treatment of contract terms that may impact the timing and amount of revenue recognized.

 

Given these factors, the related audit effort in evaluating management's judgments in determining revenue recognition for these customer agreements was extensive and required a high degree of auditor judgment.

 

How the Critical Audit Matter Was Addressed in the Audit

 

Our principal audit procedures related to the Company's revenue recognition for these customer agreements included the following:

 

 

·

We evaluated management's significant accounting policies related to these customer agreements for reasonableness.

 

·

We selected a sample of customer agreements and performed the following procedures:

 

 

o

Obtained and read contract source documents for each selection, and other documents. 

 

o

Tested management's identification and treatment of contract terms. 

 

o

Assessed the terms in the customer agreement and evaluated the appropriateness of management's application of their accounting policies, along with their use of estimates, in the determination of revenue recognition conclusions. 

 

o

Performed analytical procedures including but not limited to.

 

 

·

We tested the mathematical accuracy of management's calculations of revenue and the associated timing of revenue recognized in the financial statements.

 

·

Compared amounts to those of prior periods or other expectations by product line, geographic location, and in total.

 

Going concern - Refer to Note 2 to the financial statements, as well as Going Concern explanatory paragraph above

 

Critical Audit Matter Description

 

The Company has not generated sufficient revenues from product sales to provide sufficient cash flows to enable the Company to finance its operations internally. Given these factors, the related audit effort in evaluating going concern was extensive and required a high degree of auditor judgment.

 

How the critical audit matter was addressed in the audit

 

Our principal procedures to address this matter were:

 

 

·

Obtained cash flow forecast from the Company, performed audit procedures to evaluate the reasonableness of the forecast by comparing to historical financial statements, financing agreements and cash infusion by shareholders.

 

·

Obtained subsequent sales information and agreed to shipping records.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and

Stockholders of Trutankless, Inc. and subsidiaries

 

Opinion on the Consolidated Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Trutankless, Inc. and subsidiaries (the Company) as of December 31, 2021, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2021, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the consolidated financial statements). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2021 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2021, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.  The financial statements of Trutankless, Inc as of December 31, 2020, were audited by other auditors whose report dated June 24, 2021 expressed an unqualified opinion on those consolidated statements.

 

The Company’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company suffered a net loss from operations and has a net capital deficiency, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans regarding those matters are also described in Note 2. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

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

 

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

 

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Critical Audit Matter

 

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

 

Revenue Recognition

 

As discussed in Note 1, the Company recognizes revenue upon transfer of control of promised services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for those products or services. Significant judgment is exercised by the Company in determining revenue recognition for these customer agreements in determining whether products and services are considered distinct performance obligation and the timing of the revenue recognition. Given these factors the related audit effort in evaluating management's judgments in determining revenue recognition for these customer agreements was extensive and required a high degree of auditor judgment.

 

We tested the Company’s evaluation of the contract terms and determination revenue recognition for products or services.

TRUTANKLESS, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Organization

The Company was incorporated on March 7, 2008 under the laws of the State of Nevada, as Alcantara Brands Corporation. On October 5, 2010, the Company amended its articles of incorporation and changed its name to Bollente Companies, Inc. On June 4, 2018, the Company amended its articles of incorporation and changed its name to Trutankless, Inc.

 

The Company is involved in sales, marketing, research and development of a high quality, whole-house, smart electric tankless water heater that is more energy efficient than conventional products. Management anticipates the Company’s trutankless water heater, with Wi-Fi capability and trutankless’ proprietary apps offered in the iOS and Android store, will augment existing products in the home automation space.

 

Principles of consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Trutankless, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries. On May 16, 2010, the Company acquired 100% of the outstanding stock of Bollente, Inc. On August 20th, 2020 the Company formed a wholly owned subsidiary, Notation Labs, Inc. All significant inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated.

 

Reclassifications

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified for consistency with the current period presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the reported results of operations.

 

Use of estimates

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

 

Cash and cash equivalents

For the purpose of the statements of cash flows, all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less are considered to be cash equivalents. The carrying value of these investments approximates fair value.

 

Stock-based compensation

The Company follows ASC 718-10, “Stock Compensation”, which addresses the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods or services, with a primary focus on transactions in which an entity obtains employee services in share-based payment transactions. ASC 718-10 is a revision to SFAS No. 123, “Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation,” and supersedes Accounting Principles Board (“APB”) Opinion No. 25, “Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees,” and its related implementation guidance. ASC 718-10 requires measurement of the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the grant-date fair value of the award (with limited exceptions). Incremental compensation costs arising from subsequent modifications of awards after the grant date must be recognized.

 

Income Taxes

The Company’s calculation of its tax liabilities involves dealing with uncertainties in the application of complex tax laws and regulations in various taxing jurisdictions. The Company recognizes tax liabilities for uncertain tax positions based on management’s estimate of whether it is more likely than not that additional taxes will be required. The Company had no uncertain tax positions as of December 31, 2021 and 2020.

 

Deferred income taxes are recognized in the consolidated financial statements for the tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts based on enacted tax laws and statutory tax rates. Temporary differences arise from net operating losses, differences in depreciation methods of archived images, and property and equipment, stock-based and other compensation, and other accrued expenses. A valuation allowance is established when it is determined that it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

DECEMBER 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

The application of tax laws and regulations is subject to legal and factual interpretation, judgment and uncertainty. Tax laws and regulations themselves are subject to change as a result of changes in fiscal policy, changes in legislation, the evolution of regulations and court rulings. Therefore, the actual liability for U.S., or the various state jurisdictions, may be materially different from management’s estimates, which could result in the need to record additional tax liabilities or potentially reverse previously recorded tax liabilities. Interest and penalties are included in tax expense.

 

The Company includes interest and penalties arising from the underpayment of income taxes in the statements of operation in the provision for income taxes. As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had no accrued interest or penalties related to uncertain tax positions.

 

Earnings per share

The Company follows ASC Topic 260 to account for the earnings per share. Basic earnings per common share (“EPS”) calculations are determined by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the year. Diluted earnings per common share calculations are determined by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive common share equivalents outstanding. During periods of net loss, all common stock equivalents are excluded from the diluted EPS calculation because they are antidilutive. Potential equivalent shares of Common Stock as of December 31, 2021 that have been excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share amounted to 3,461,400 shares of Common Stock, which included 2,510,485 shares of Common Stock underlying outstanding warrants and 950,915 shares of Common Stock underlying outstanding convertible notes payable.

 

Accounts receivable

Accounts receivable is comprised of uncollateralized customer obligations due under normal trade terms. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluation of its customers and management closely monitors outstanding receivables based on factors surrounding the credit risk of specific customers, historical trends, and other information. The carrying amount of accounts receivable is reviewed periodically for collectability. If management determines that collection is unlikely, an allowance that reflects management’s best estimate of the amounts that will not be collected is recorded. Accounts receivable are presented net of an allowance for doubtful accounts of $179,381 and $182,191 at December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

Inventory

Inventory, including manufacturing cost and shipping are stated at the lower of cost (average cost) or market (net realizable value).

 

Revenue recognition

We recognize revenue in accordance with ASC 606, Revenue From Contracts with Customers, which requires that five basic criteria be met before revenue can be recognized: (i) identify the contract with the customer; (ii) identity the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) determine the transaction price; (iv) allocate the transaction price; and (v) recognize revenue when or as the entity satisfied a performance obligation.

 

Revenue recognition occurs at the time the product is shipped to customers, when control transfers to customers, provided there are no material remaining performance obligations required of the Company or any matters of customer acceptance. We only record revenue when collectability is probable.

 

Fair value of financial instruments

The Company measures fair value in accordance with ASC 820 - Fair Value Measurements. ASC 820 defines fair value and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurements. ASC 820 establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. To increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and related disclosures, ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three (3) broad levels. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. The three (3) levels of fair value hierarchy defined by ASC 820 are:

 

Level 1 - Inputs are unadjusted, quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities at the measurement date.

 

 
F-11

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

Level 2 - Inputs (other than quoted market prices included in Level 1) are either directly or indirectly observable for the asset or liability through correlation with market data at the measurement date and for the duration of the instrument’s anticipated life.

 

Level 3 - Inputs reflect management’s best estimate of what market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability at the measurement date. Consideration is given to the risk inherent in the valuation technique and the risk inherent in the inputs to the model. Valuation of instruments includes unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of fair value of assets or liabilities.

 

As defined by ASC 820, the fair value of a financial instrument is the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale, which was further clarified as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (“an exit price”) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.

 

The reported fair values for financial instruments that use Level 2 and Level 3 inputs to determine fair value are based on a variety of factors and assumptions. Accordingly, certain fair values may not represent actual values of the Company’s financial instruments that could have been realized as of December 31, 2021 or that will be recognized in the future, and do not include expenses that could be incurred in an actual settlement. The carrying amounts of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities, such as cash, accounts receivable, receivables from related parties, prepaid expenses and other, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, and related party and third-party notes payables approximate fair value due to their relatively short maturities. The Company’s notes payable to related parties approximates the fair value of such instrument based upon management’s best estimate of terms that would be available to the Company for similar financial arrangements at December 31, 2021 and 2020.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In October 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-08, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers, which requires contract assets and contract liabilities acquired in a business combination to be recognized and measured by the acquirer on the acquisition date in accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, as if it had originated the contracts. Under the current business combinations guidance, such assets and liabilities are recognized by the acquirer at fair value on the acquisition date. This new guidance is effective for the Company for its fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The Company is evaluating its potential impact but does not expect the new standard to have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or cash flows.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments on October 1, 2020 (“ASU 2016-13”). ASU 2016-13 requires entities to use a new forward-looking “expected loss” model that reflects expected credit losses, including credit losses related to trade receivables, and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates, which generally will result in the earlier recognition of allowances for losses. As the Company was a Smaller Reporting Company at the time of issuance of the ASU, the Company expects to adopt the ASU effective October 1, 2023, including the interim periods within the fiscal year. Early application of the adoption is permitted. The Company is evaluating its potential impact but does not expect the new standard to have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or cash flows.

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, “Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options (subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (subtopic 815-40),” which reduces the number of accounting models in ASC 470-20 that require separate accounting for embedded conversion features. As a result, a convertible debt instrument will be accounted for as a single liability measured at its amortized cost as long as no other features require bifurcation and recognition as derivatives. By removing those separation models, the effective interest rate of convertible debt instruments will be closer to the coupon interest rate. Further, the diluted net income per share calculation for convertible instruments will require the Company to use the if-converted method. The treasury stock method should no longer be used to calculate diluted net income per share for convertible instruments. The amendment will be effective for the Company for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is evaluating its potential impact but does not expect the new standard to have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or cash flows.

 

NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business.

 

Management evaluated all relevant conditions and events that are reasonably known or reasonably knowable, in the aggregate, as of the date the consolidated financial statements are issued and determined that substantial doubt exists about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to generate revenues and raise capital. The Company has not generated sufficient revenues from product sales to provide sufficient cash flows to enable the Company to finance its operations internally. As of December 31, 2021, the Company had $59,726 cash on hand. At December 31, 2021, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $60,372,841. For the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company had a net loss of $17,379,770, and cash used in operations of $2,431,848. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year from the date of filing.

 

Over the next twelve months management plans raise additional capital and to invest its working capital resources in sales and marketing in order to increase the distribution and demand for its products. If the Company fails to generate sufficient revenue and obtain additional capital to continue at its expected level of operations, the Company may be forced to scale back or discontinue its sales and marketing efforts. However, there is no guarantee the Company will generate sufficient revenues or raise capital to continue operations. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

The issuance of the shares and warrants under the agreement resulted in the noteholder becoming a more than 5% shareholder and a related party.

On November 15, 2018, both notes were further extended to January 1, 2020 (see below) for the issuance of 80,000 shares valued $40,800. On May 16, 2019, the maturity dates of both notes were extended to July 1, 2020 for the issuance of 50,000 shares of common stock valued at $21,000. The Company recorded the fair market value of all the shares issued for extensions to financing cost.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

On January 1, 2020, the Company entered into an agreement to consolidate three notes payable above dated September 2, 2016 and February 2, 2018 into one $300,000, 12% note due June 1, 2021. As consideration the Company issued the note holder 175,000 shares of common stock valued at $61,250 which was recorded as financing expense. The Company evaluated the modification under ASC 470-50 and determined that the modifications were considered substantial and qualified for extinguishment accounting under such guidance. As such the Company recorded a loss on extinguishment of debt of $61,250 associated with the excess reacquisition cost of the new debt over the carrying value of the original debt. As of December 31, 2021 and 2020 the balance of the note was $300,000 and $300,000, respectively. As of December 31, 2021 the note is in default.

 

On June 11, 2020, the Company issued $160,000 of principal amount of 12% secured convertible promissory notes and warrants to purchase common stock. The notes were due between May and August 2018 and bear interest of percent (12%). The notes are secured by all of the Company’s assets. The outstanding principal amounts and accrued but unpaid interest of the notes is convertible at any time at the option of the holder into common stock at a conversion price of $1.00 per share. The notes were issued with warrants to purchase up to 160,000 shares of the Company’s common stock which were valued at $119,616.
