CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

Except for historical information, this report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Such forward-looking statements include, among others, those statements including the words “believes”, “anticipates”, “expects”, “intends”, “estimates”, “plans” and words of similar import. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements, or industry results, to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

 

Forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, potential target businesses, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, by their nature, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Our actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. We caution you therefore that you should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements as statements of historical fact or as guarantees or assurances of future performance. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include changes in local, regional, national or global political, economic, business, competitive, market (supply and demand) and regulatory conditions.

 

A description of these and other risks and uncertainties that could affect our business appears in the section captioned “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K which we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 24, 2022 (the “Form 10-K”). The risks and uncertainties described under “Risk Factors” are not exhaustive.

 

Given these uncertainties, readers of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“Quarterly Report”) are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. We disclaim any obligation to update any such factors or to publicly announce the result of any revisions to any of the forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect future events or developments.

VEMANTI GROUP, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements included in our Registration Statement on Form S-1, which we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on May 3, 2022, and notes thereto. In preparing these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The most significant estimates and assumptions included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements relate to allowances for doubtful accounts, valuation allowance for deferred income taxes and recoverability of other assets.

 

Reclassification

 

Certain amounts reported in the prior year condensed consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year’s presentation.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries, VoiceStep and Vemanti Digital. All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated. On March 1, 2022, a resolution was approved by the Board of Directors to dissolve Vemanti Digital Ltd. On April 28, 2022, Vemanti Digital was formally dissolved.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Significant estimates made by management include, among others, allowances for doubtful accounts, valuation allowance for deferred income taxes and recoverability of other assets. Actual results could differ from those estimates. It is possible that accounting estimates and assumptions may be material to the Company due to the levels of subjectivity and judgment involved.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand and cash in time deposits, certificates of deposit, and all highly liquid debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less. As of June 30, 2022, and December 31, 2021, the Company had no cash equivalents.

 

Accounts Receivables

 

The Company regularly reviews its accounts receivables for collectability and establishes an allowance for doubtful accounts as necessary using the allowance method. The receivables are not collateralized.

Equipment

 

Equipment is stated at cost. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred; additions, renewals and betterments are capitalized. When equipment is retired or otherwise disposed of, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the respective accounts, and any gain or loss is included in operations. Depreciation of equipment is provided using the straight-line method for substantially all assets with estimated lives as follows:

 

Software licenses

5 years

Computer equipment

5 years

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company applies the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment, which addresses financial accounting and reporting for the impairment or disposal of long-lived assets. ASC 360 requires impairment losses to be recorded on long-lived assets used in operations when indicators of impairment are present and the undiscounted cash flows estimated to be generated by those assets are less than the assets’ carrying amounts. In that event, a loss is recognized based on the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the long-lived assets. Loss on long-lived assets to be disposed of is determined in a similar manner, except that fair values are reduced for the cost of disposal. Based on its review at June 30, 2022, and December 31, 2021, the Company believes there was no impairment of its long-lived assets.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, the core principle of which is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for those goods or services. To achieve this core principle, five basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) identify the contract with a customer; (2) identify the performance obligation(s) in the contract; (3) determine the transaction price; (4) allocate the transaction price to performance obligation(s) in the contract; and (5) recognize revenue when or as the Company satisfies a performance obligation.

 

The Company recognizes revenues derived from sub-leasing telecommunications infrastructure and the provision of telecommunications and colocation services. These revenues are accounted for as a single performance obligation satisfied over time because the customer simultaneously receives and consumes the benefits of the Company’s performance on a monthly basis. These arrangements stipulate monthly billing and the Company has elected the “as invoiced” practical expedient to recognize revenue as the services are consumed as the Company has the right to payment in an amount that corresponds directly with the value of performance completed to date.

 

Taxes collected from customers and remitted to a governmental authority are reported on a net basis and are excluded from revenue. Most revenue is billed in advance on a fixed-rate basis. The remainder of revenue is billed in arrears on a transactional basis determined by customer usage.

 

The Company often bills customers for upfront charges. These charges relate to down payments or prepayments for future services or equipment and are influenced by various business factors including how the Company and customer agree to structure the payment terms. These payments are recognized as deferred revenue until the service is provided or equipment is delivered and installed. All ongoing fees are billed and recognized as revenue on a monthly basis as service is provided.

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) ASC Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation. FASB ASC Topic 718 requires companies to measure compensation cost for stock-based employee compensation at fair value at the grant date and recognize the expense over the employee’s requisite service period. The Company recognizes in the condensed consolidated statement of operations the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity-based compensation issued to employees and consultants. Nonemployee share-based payment equity awards are measured at the grant-date fair value of the equity instruments and recognized as an expense over the requisite service period.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes. ASC 740 requires a company to use the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes, whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences, and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion, or all of, the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

 

Under ASC 740, a tax position is recognized as a benefit only if it is “more likely than not” that the tax position would be sustained in a tax examination, with a tax examination being presumed to occur. The amount recognized is the largest amount of tax benefit that is greater than 50% likely of being realized on examination. For tax positions not meeting the “more likely than not” test, no tax benefit is recorded.

 

Basic and Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

Earnings (loss) per share is calculated in accordance with ASC Topic 260, Earnings Per Share. Basic earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”) is based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted EPS is based on the assumption that all dilutive convertible shares and stock options and warrants were converted or exercised. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, options and warrants are assumed to be exercised at the beginning of the period (or at the time of issuance, if later), and as if funds obtained thereby were used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. There are no potentially dilutive securities outstanding during all periods presented.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company applies the provisions of ASC 820-10, ”Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures.” ASC 820-10 defines fair value and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement that enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures. The three levels of valuation hierarchy are defined as follows:

 

 

·

Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 

 

 

 

·

Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

 

 

 

 

·

Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

 

For certain financial instruments, the carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for cash, investments, and current liabilities, each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of their fair values because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest. It is not practicable to estimate the fair value of the loan from stockholder due to its related party nature. At June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company did not identify any assets or liabilities that are required to be presented on the balance sheet at fair value.

Recent Authoritative Guidance

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 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): Accounting for convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity, to address the complexity in accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity. This ASU significantly changes the guidance on the issuer’s accounting for convertible instruments and the guidance on the derivative scope exception for contracts in an entity’s own equity so that fewer conversion features will require separate recognition., and fewer freestanding instruments, like warrants with require liability treatment. ASU 2020-06 is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2021. This guidance was adopted on January 1, 2022 and at June 30, 2022, there is no material impact on the Company’s financial statement and disclosures.

 

In May 2021, the FASB issued ASU No. 2021-04, Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options – a Consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force. There has been diversity in accounting for modifications of equity-classified warrants due to a lack of explicit guidance in the Codification. Some entities recognize an expense, while other record a dividend for an economically similar warrant modification. The FASB issued the ASU to reduce this diversity and establish a principles-based recognition framework according to the substance of the modification transaction. ASU 2021-04 is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2021, and interim period within those fiscal years. This guidance was adopted on January 1, 2022, and at June 30, 2022, there is no material impact on the Company’s financial statement and disclosures.

 

Management does not believe any other recently issued but not yet effective accounting pronouncement, if adopted, would have a material impact effect on the Company’s present or future financial statements.

This plan automatically terminates ten years from its date of adoption. As of the date of this report, no stock has been issued under this plan.

 

Time-Based Restricted Stock

 

Time-based restricted stock units (“RSU”) and restricted stock awards (“RSA”) granted to employees under the 2015 Plan typically vest over 3 to 4 years and are subject to forfeiture if employment terminates prior to the vesting or lapse of the restrictions, as applicable.

NOTE 4 – Investment in Fvndit, Inc. (formerly Directus Holdings, Inc.)

 

On November 13, 2018, the Company purchased a 20% investment in Directus Holdings, Inc., which owns eLoan, JSC (“eLoan”), a fintech company based in Vietnam, for $300,000. Half of the investment was made through a cash payment of $150,000, and the remaining half of the investment was made through the issuance of 1,252,086 shares of Vemanti Group’s common stock to the Founders of eLoan. On December 19, 2018, Directus Holdings, Inc. filed a Certificate of Amendment to Articles of Incorporation to the State of Nevada for its corporation name to be changed to Fvndit, Inc.

 

On October 5, 2020, Fvndit issued 500,000 shares of common stock to Tan Tran, CEO and majority shareholder of Vemanti. The issuance raised the total number of Fvndit outstanding shares to 40,500,000. Mr. Tran and Vemanti together owned 8,500,000 shares or 20.99% of total Fvndit outstanding shares at that time.

 

On March 16, 2021, Tan Tran resigned as an Officer and Director of Fvndit. On that same date, Fvndit issued 2,500,000 shares of common stock to Thomas Duc Tran (unaffiliated with Tan Tran), and appointed him as the Chairman, CEO, President, Secretary, and Treasurer of Fvndit. The issuance raised the total number of Fvndit outstanding shares to 43,000,000. As a result, Mr. Tran and Vemanti together held 19.77% of total Fvndit outstanding shares.

 

On June 16, 2022, pursuant to the terms of a stock purchase agreement, Fvndit purchased from the Company all of the shares of Fvndit’s common stock currently owned by the Company and certain accounts receivable of approximately $25,000 that were due from Fvndit to the Company. As a result of the sale, the Company no longer owns any shares of Fvndit.

 

This investment had been accounted for under the cost method of accounting since March 16, 2021. As of June 30, 2022, and December 31, 2021, this investment had a balance of $0 and $296,405, respectively, and is reflected in other assets on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

The following management’s discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our historical financial statements and the related notes thereto. The management’s discussion and analysis contain forward-looking statements, such as statements of our plans, objectives, expectations and intentions. Any statements that are not statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. When used, the words “believe,” “plan,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “target,” “estimate,” “expect” and the like, and/or future tense or conditional constructions (“will,” “may,” “could,” “should,” etc.), or similar expressions, identify certain of these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, including those under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, which we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 24, 2022, that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Our actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of several factors. We do not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this Quarterly Report.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The following discussion highlights our results of operations and the principal factors that have affected our financial condition as well as our liquidity and capital resources for the periods described and provides information that management believes is relevant for an assessment and understanding of the statements of consolidated financial condition and results of operations presented herein. The following discussion and analysis are based on our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contained in this Quarterly Report, which we have prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles. You should read the discussion and analysis together with such consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto.

 

Overview

 

Vemanti, incorporated on April 3, 2014 under the laws of the State of Nevada, is a financial technology (fintech) company that seeks to generate revenues in the emerging markets of Vietnam and Southeast Asia. In particular, we intend to focus our future product and business development on digital banking platforms, fintech, and on applications using disruptive technologies aimed at making credit simpler and easier to access for small to medium enterprises (“SMEs”) in our target markets.

Until June 16, 2022, we also held an 18.6% ownership interest in Fvndit which, through its subsidiaries, operates an online short-term P2P financing platform for SMEs in Vietnam.  On June 16, 2022, the Company executed and consummated the transactions contemplated by a stock purchase agreement (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”) entered into by and between the Company and Fvndit.  Pursuant to the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement, Fvndit purchased from the Company all of the shares of Fvndit’s common stock then owned by the Company and certain accounts receivable of approximately $25,000 that were due from Fvndit to the Company in consideration for certain assets of Fvndit related to providing a peer-to-peer investment marketplace in Vietnam that matches companies needing working capital funds with investors wishing to provide those funds. As a result of the sale, the Company no longer owns any shares of Fvndit, and no longer holds the securities of any other entity other than those of our wholly owned subsidiary, VoiceStep.  

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, and 2021, we recognized approximately $73,781 and $73,927, respectively, in sales, and no interest income in either period. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, and 2021, we also recorded an unrealized loss of $0, and $1,651, respectively, on our former investment in Fvndit. For the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, and 2021, we incurred a net loss of $560,730 and $514,298, respectively.

 

As reflected in the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements, we used cash in operations of $203,483 and had a net loss from operations of $561,166 and an accumulated deficit of $3,844,817 as of and for the six months ended June 30, 2022.

 

While we believe in the viability of our strategy to generate sufficient revenues and in our ability to raise additional funds, there can be no assurances that we will be successful or that our cash position will be sufficient to support our daily operations. Our continued existence is dependent upon our ability to continue to execute our operating plan and to obtain additional debt or equity financing. There can be no assurance the necessary debt or equity financing will be available or will be available on terms acceptable to our Company. Accordingly, we may decide to exit our existing business and explore potential strategic alternatives, including establishing a new business, or target an existing business for acquisition, without restriction to any specific business, industry or geographical location.

Sale of Fvndit, Inc. Investment

 

On June 16, 2022, the Company executed and consummated the transactions contemplated by a stock purchase agreement (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”) entered into by and between the Company and Fvndit, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Fvndit”). Pursuant to the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement, Fvndit purchased from the Company all of the shares of Fvndit’s common stock, par value $0.0001 currently owned by the Company (the “Shares”) and certain accounts receivable of approximately $25,000 (the “Accounts Receivable”) that were due from Fvndit to the Company. As a result of the sale, the Company no longer owns any shares of Fvndit.

 

As consideration for the sale of the Shares and the Accounts Receivable to Fvndit, the Company acquired all rights to the documentation, copyrights, and proprietary information associated with Fvndit’s online investment marketplace business in Vietnam, the right to the name Fvndit, ownership of the “fvndit.com” domain name, and certain information related to Fvndit’s customers (collectively, the “Consideration”). Other than standard post-closing liabilities related to the Consideration, the Company assumed no liabilities of Fvndit, its business or any pre-closing liabilities related to the Consideration.

Gross Profit and Gross Profit Margin

 

Gross profit was $61,608 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $63,475 in the same period of 2021. Our gross profit margin as a percentage of sales for the six months ended June 30, 2022, was 84%, compared to 86% for the same period in 2021.  The decrease was mainly due to an increase in the cost of sales for the services provided by our telecom providers. 

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative (G&A) expenses were $622,774 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $570,747 for the same period in 2021, representing an increase of 9%, or $52,027.  The increase was mainly due to the increased cost of compensating consultants to assist with developing and launching the Company’s fintech initiatives.

 

Operating Loss

 

Total operating loss was $561,166 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $507,272 in the same period of 2021, representing an increase of $53,894 or 11%. The increase was mainly due to increased cost of compensating consultants to assist with developing and launching the Company’s fintech initiatives.

 

As of June 30, 2022, and 2021, there were no significant deferred tax assets, except for a net operating loss carryforward for which a 100% valuation allowance has been provided.

 

The Company annually conducts an analysis of its tax positions and has concluded that it has no uncertain tax positions as of June 30, 2022, and December 31, 2021.  The 2018 to 2021 tax years are still subject to federal audit. The 2017 to 2021 tax years are still subject to state audit.

 

The Company had $2,679,077 and $1,132,304 of net operating loss carryforwards available as of December 31, 2021, and 2020, respectively, for federal and state tax purposes. The federal net operating loss carryforward does not expire while the state net operating losses expire in various years through 2041.

 

Net Loss

 

As a result of the above factors, we had a net loss of $560,730 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to a net loss of $514,298 for the same period in 2021.

Gross Profit and Gross Profit Margin

 

Gross profit was $29,529 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $32,635 in the same period of 2021.

Net Income

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

Historically, our primary uses of cash have been to finance working capital needs. We expect that we will be able to meet our needs to fund operations, capital expenditures and other commitments in the next 12 months primarily with our cash balance and operating cash flows.

 

We may need to raise additional capital to fund our operating expenses, pay our obligations, and grow our Company in the future. Our current resources may be insufficient to satisfy all of our cash requirements and we may seek to sell additional equity or debt securities or obtain a credit facility. Our future operations may be dependent on our ability to secure additional financing. Even if we are able to raise the funds required, it is possible that we could incur unexpected costs and expenses, fail to collect amounts owed to us, or experience unexpected cash requirements that would force us to seek alternative financing. Furthermore, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our common stock.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that the information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Table of Contents

 

Our management, with the participation and supervision of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, have evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Based on such evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were not, in design and operation, effective at a reasonable assurance level due to the material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting described below. Because of our limited operations, we have a limited number of employees which prohibits a segregation of duties. In addition, we lack a formal audit committee with a financial expert. As we grow and expand our operations, we will engage additional employees and experts as needed. However, there can be no assurance that our operations will expand.

 

Changes in Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by Rule 13a-15(d) and 15d-15(d) of the Exchange Act that occurred during the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Inherent Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls

 

The effectiveness of any system of internal control over financial reporting, including ours, is subject to inherent limitations, including the exercise of judgment in designing, implementing, operating, and evaluating the controls and procedures, and the inability to eliminate misconduct completely. Accordingly, in designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any system of internal control over financial reporting, including ours, no matter how well designed and operated, can only provide reasonable, not absolute assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and that management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs. Moreover, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. We intend to continue to monitor and upgrade our internal controls as necessary or appropriate for our business but cannot assure you that such improvements will be sufficient to provide us with effective internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

 

On June 25, 2021, the Company filed a complaint against Messrs. Chenyuan Anthony Chen and Ang Hu (the “Defendants”) in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Orange (the “Complaint”). Pursuant to a Consulting Agreement dated April 1, 2019, by and among the Company and the Defendants (the “Consulting Agreement”), the Company issued to the Defendants 3,250,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Consulting Shares”) as compensation for certain consulting services to be performed by the Defendants. Pursuant to the Complaint, the Company alleges that the Defendants breached the Consulting Agreement by failing to perform such consulting services and thereby seeks injunctive relief to restrain Defendants from sales of the Consulting Shares, the cancellation of the Consulting Shares, and compensatory damages and legal fees. On July 11, 2022, the Company has reached a legal settlement with the Defendants to have 3,090,000 of the Consulting Shares returned to the Company. Such shares will be cancelled upon receipt.
