PRELIMINARY PROSPECTUS SUBJECT TO COMPLETION, DATED DECEMBER 20, 2021

 

2,000,000 Shares

Common Stock

 

We are offering 2,000,000 shares of our common stock, $.0001 par value per share (“Shares”) (the “Offering”). Our common stock is currently quoted on the OTCPink tier of the over-the-counter market (“OTCPink”) operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc., under the symbol “ALPC.” However, the trading market for our Shares has been extremely limited, there have only been minimal and sporadic public quotations for our Shares and there are no recent closing quotations for our Shares. We have applied to list our common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) under the symbol “ALPC”. We believe that upon completion of this Offering, we will meet the standards for listing on the Nasdaq. We cannot guarantee that we will be successful in listing our common stock on the Nasdaq; however, we will not complete this Offering unless we are so listed. We expect the offering price of our common stock in this Offering will be $5.00 per Share.

 

Omega Capital Finance Corporation (“Omega”), our principal stockholder, will control between 82.3 % and 81.9 % of the combined voting power of our capital stock upon completion of this Offering, and we are therefore a “controlled company” as defined under Nasdaq Marketplace Rules. However, even if we qualify as a “controlled company,” we do not intend to rely on the controlled company exemptions provided under Nasdaq Marketplace Rules.

 

Investing in our securities involves a high degree of risk. See “Risk Factors” beginning on page 10 of this prospectus and in the documents incorporated by reference into this prospectus to read about factors you should consider before investing in our securities.

 

Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or passed upon the adequacy or accuracy of this prospectus. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

 

   Per Share   Total 
Public offering price  $ 5.00    $ 10,000,000  
Underwriting discounts and commissions (1)  $ 0.35    $ 700,000  
Proceeds to us, before expenses (2)       $ 9,300,000  

 

(1) In addition, we have agreed to issue to the representative of the underwriters (the “Representative”) warrants to purchase 7.0% of the total number of shares of common stock sold in this offering and to provide the Representative a non-accountable expense allowance equal to 1.0% of the gross proceeds of this offering from investors sourced by the underwriters.  See “Underwriting” on page 38 of this prospectus for additional information.
   
(2) Does not include proceeds from the exercise of the Representative’s warrants in cash, if any.

 

We have granted the Representative an option to purchase from us, at the public offering price, up to 300,000 additional Shares, less the underwriting discounts and commissions, within 45 days from the date of this prospectus to cover over-allotments, if any. If the Representative exercises the option in full, the total underwriting discounts and commissions will be $805,000, and the total net proceeds to us, before expenses, will be $10,695,000.

 

The underwriters expect to deliver the shares of common stock to the purchasers on or about                   , 2022 .

INDUSTRY AND MARKET DATA

 

We use market data and industry forecasts throughout this prospectus and, in particular, in the section entitled “Business.” Unless otherwise indicated, statements in this prospectus concerning our industry and the markets in which we operate, including our general expectations, competitive position, business opportunity and market size, growth and share, are based on information obtained from industry publications, government publications and third party forecasts, primarily the 2021 U.S. Real Estate Market Outlook report, prepared and made publicly available by CBRE Group, Inc. (“CBRE”). There can be no assurance that any of the projections will be achieved. We believe that the surveys and market research performed by others are reliable, but we have not independently verified this information. Accordingly, the accuracy and completeness of the information are not guaranteed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PROSPECTUS SUMMARY

 

This summary provides an overview of all material information contained in this prospectus.  It does not contain all the information you should consider before making a decision to purchase our Shares offered hereby.  You should very carefully and thoroughly read the more detailed information in this prospectus and review our financial statements and all other information that is included in this prospectus.

 

Unless the context otherwise requires, references in this prospectus to “Alpha Investment,” “ALPC,” “the Company,” “we,” “ourand us” refers to Alpha Investment Inc. and its subsidiaries.

  

Overview

 

We intend to provide capital directly to borrowers seeking financing for commercial real estate properties either for refinancing or acquisitions. These loans will encompass originating performing commercial first mortgage loans, subordinate financings, and other commercial real estate-related debt. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we intend to operate our business so that we do not become subject to the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. Accordingly, we do not plan to primarily engage in the business of investing, reinvesting or trading in securities and we do not plan to acquire investment securities (such as commercial mortgage-backed securities) having a value exceeding 40% of the value of the Company’s total assets.

 

We expect to offer financing across a broad-spectrum of asset backed and commercial real asset type collateral of any property type such as office, retail, industrial, multi-family, and hospitality. The Company will coordinate its lending initiatives with outside commercial real estate loan brokers, which have access to commercial real estate owners seeking financing or refinancing opportunities, and with loan origination firms that have borrowers seeking loans. We believe that this will enable ALPC to broaden its access to new borrowers and to develop and implement financing solutions for these other lenders, mortgage bankers, borrowers, and owners. In the event the Company uses third party loan origination services and underwriters, the Company will cover these costs in accordance with industry standard practices. In addition, the Company from time to time will also engage in participating equity financing within strategic opportunistic projects and businesses that could bring added value to shareholders.

 

The Company expects to require substantial capital to fully fund and implement its operations. The Company plans to raise such capital through the Offering covered hereby, from alternative offerings of debt or other securities or through joint venture partnerships. There can be no assurance that the Company can successfully raise such capital or consummate alternative offerings of its debt or other securities or joint venture partnerships on favorable terms or otherwise. If such efforts are not successful, then we may be unable to honor funding commitments or be forced to curtail our operations or consider other strategic alternatives.

 

Investment Strategy

 

To identify attractive lending opportunities, the Company expects to continue to deploy its capital through the origination of commercial mortgage loans, subordinate financings and other commercial real-estate related debt investments at attractive risk-adjusted yields. The Company targets lending opportunities that are secured by commercial real estate. The Company’s underwriting includes a focus on stressed in-place cash flows, debt yields, debt service coverage ratios, loan-to-value ratios, property quality and market and sub-market dynamics.

 

Potential Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on our Business

 

Commercial mortgage lending may be subject to volatility during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and may be adversely affected by a number of factors, including, but not limited to, national, regional and local economic conditions; local real estate conditions; changes or continued weakness in specific industry segments; construction quality, age and design; demographic factors; retroactive changes to building or similar codes; pandemics; natural disasters and other acts of god. In addition, decreases in property values reduce the value of the collateral and the potential proceeds available to a borrower to repay the underlying loans or loans, as the case may be, which could also cause us to suffer losses. Market volatility has been particularly heightened due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. COVID-19 has disrupted economic activities and could have a continued significant adverse effect on economic and market conditions including limited lending from financial institutions, depressed asset values, and limited market liquidity. At the present time, we are unable to estimate the potential adverse effect which the pandemic may have on our business, operations and financial condition.

 

 

 

Corporate History

 

We were incorporated in the State of Delaware on February 22, 2013, to develop, create, manufacture and market toys for small children which would be designed to attach to car seats and amuse and entertain children during a drive, without distracting the attention of the driver. The Company, however, encountered significant constraints in raising sufficient capital to fully implement its business plan.

 

On March 17, 2017, Omega purchased 35,550,000 outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Control Share Sale”) from Malcolm Hargrave (35,000,000 shares), DTH International Corporation (500,000 shares) and Lisa Foster (50,000 shares) for aggregate consideration of $295,000. The Control Share Sale was consummated in a private transaction pursuant to a common stock purchase agreement entered between Omega and Mr. Hargrave, acting individually and on behalf of the other selling stockholders. Upon completion of the Control Share Sale, a “Change in Control” of the Company took place and in connection therewith, Mr. Hargrave resigned as our sole director and officer and Omega, as the new majority stockholder of the Company, elected Timothy R. Fussell, Ph.D. as President, Chairman of the Board and a director (Dr. Fussell stepped down from those positions in April 2020) and Todd C. Buxton, Omega’s then Chief Executive Officer, as Chief Executive Officer, Vice Chairman of the Board and a director.

 

In addition to the foregoing, new management elected to shift the Company’s business focus to real estate lending, which they believed offered better opportunities for shareholder growth. In connection therewith, on March 30, 2017, we filed a Certificate of Amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State changing our name from “Gogo Baby, Inc.” to “Alpha Investment Inc.” to better reflect our new business plan.   The name change and a corresponding change in the Company’s OTC markets trading symbol from GGBY to ALPC received approval from FINRA and became effective as of April 19, 2017.

 

Capital Restructuring

 

In order to provide the Company with the capital structure needed to complete this Offering, in 2021 the Company implemented a capital restructuring pursuant to which:

 

  · Omega Commercial Finance Corporation (“Omega”), our principal stockholder, exchanged 31,070,000 shares of our common stock held by it for 100,000 shares of a newly designated Series AA Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series AA Preferred Stock”); and

 

  · Holders of an additional 1,965,000 shares of our common stock contributed such shares to the capital of the Company.

 

Each share of Series AA Preferred Stock is convertible at the option of the holder into ten (10) shares of the Company’s common stock for an aggregate of 1,000,000 shares of common stock, subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends and similar transactions. The Series AA Preferred Stock has a liquidation preference of $1.00 per share and is entitled to share ratably in dividends declared on the Company’s common stock on an “as converted” basis.

 

Each share of Series AA Preferred Stock is entitled to 450 votes on each matter presented to stockholders (subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends and similar transactions). Shares of Series AA Preferred Stock vote together shares of our common stock as a single class, except as required by Delaware law. Accordingly, Omega, as the holder of the Series AA Preferred Stock and 1,278,139 shares, will control between 82.3% and 91.9% of the combined voting power of our capital stock upon completion of this Offering and therefore will control the Company’s affairs following the consummation of this Offering. Moreover, we will be deemed to be a “controlled company” as defined under Nasdaq Marketplace Rules. However, even if we qualify as a “controlled company,” we do not intend to rely on the controlled company exemptions provided under Nasdaq Marketplace Rules.

 

Corporate Information

 

Our executive offices are located at 200 East Campus View Blvd., Suite 200, Columbus, OH and our telephone number is (305) 704-3294. Our website is www.alphainvestmentinc.com. Information contained in our website shall not be deemed incorporated into this prospectus.

 

Controlled Company

 

As long as Omega, our principal stockholder holds at least 50% of the voting power of our capital stock, we will be a “controlled company” as defined under Nasdaq Marketplace Rules. However, even if we qualify as a “controlled company,” we do not intend to rely on the controlled company exemptions provided under the Nasdaq Marketplace Rules. For so long as we are a “controlled company” under that definition, we are permitted however to elect to rely, and may rely, on certain exemptions from corporate governance rules, including:

 

  an exemption from the rule that a majority of our board of directors must be independent directors;

 

 

 

 

  an exemption from the rule that the compensation of our chief executive officer must be determined or recommended solely by independent directors; and
  an exemption from the rule that our director nominees must be selected or recommended solely by independent directors.

 

If we elect to rely on the “controlled company” exemption, a majority of the members of our board of directors might not be independent directors and our nominating and corporate governance and compensation committees might not consist entirely of independent directors. (See “Risk Factors – Risks Related to Our Shares, Our Corporate Structure and this Offering – As a “controlled company” under Nasdaq Marketplace Rules, we may choose to exempt our Company from certain corporate governance requirements that could have an adverse effect on our public stockholders.”)

 

The Offering

 

Issuer: Alpha Investment Inc., a Delaware corporation.
   
Shares offered in the Offering: 2,000,000 Shares.
   
Shares to be outstanding immediately after completion of the Offering: 11,724,401 Shares(1).
   
Estimated Offering Price: $5.00 per Share.  
   
Total Offering: A maximum of $ 10,000,000 .                   
   
Over-allotment option: We have granted the Representative a 45-day option to purchase up to 300,000 additional Shares from us at the public offering price, less underwriting discounts and commissions.
   
Underwriting: The Shares in the Offering are being offered and sold in a public offering on a firm commitment basis, which means the underwriters are obligated to take and pay for all the shares offered by this prospectus if any such shares are taken contingent upon the passing upon of certain legal matters by counsel and certain conditions such as confirmation of the accuracy of representations and warranties by us about our financial condition and operations and other matters. The obligation of the underwriters to purchase the Shares is also conditioned upon our receiving approval to list the shares of common stock on Nasdaq. The Representative is not required to take or pay for the shares covered by the over-allotment option to purchase additional shares of common stock.
   
Dividend Policy: We have never paid cash dividends on our common stock and we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. See “Dividend Policy.”
   
Use of Proceeds: We estimate the net proceeds to us from the Offering, after deducting the estimated underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us (based on an assumed offering price of $5.00 per Share), will be approximately $8,767,000, or $10,147,000 if the Representative  exercises the over-allotment option in full. We intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of the Shares in the Offering to support our core business operations in the commercial real estate lending sector involving the funding of senior debt and mezzanine financings for income producing properties and commercial construction loans as needed.  We may also use a portion of the net proceeds of the Offering to participate on an equity basis in strategic opportunities, projects and businesses, which management believes have the potential of bringing added value to our stockholders.  In addition, a portion of the net proceeds of this Offering will be used for working capital and other general corporate purposes.

RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in our Shares involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the risks described below, together with all of the other information included in this prospectus, including information in the section of this prospectus entitled “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.” The risks and uncertainties described below are not the only ones facing us. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently believe are immaterial may also impair our business operations. If any of the following risks actually occur, our business, financial condition or results of operations could be materially adversely affected, the value of our common stock could decline, and you may lose all or part of your investment.

 

Risks Related to Our Business

 

We have a limited operating history upon which an evaluation of our prospects can be made.

 

Alpha Investment was incorporated on February 22, 2013 under the name GoGo Baby, Inc. to develop, create, manufacture and market toys for small children which would be designed to attach to car seats and amuse and entertain children during a drive, without distracting the attention of the driver. The Company, however, encountered significant constraints in raising sufficient capital to fully implement such business plan. The Company only shifted its business focus to commercial estate and other asset-based lending activities upon completion of the Control Share Sale on March 17, 2017. To date, the Company has realized only minimal revenues therefrom and has no operating history in its present line of business upon which an evaluation of our future prospects can be made. Based upon current plans, we expect to incur operating losses in future periods as we incur expenses associated with the implementation of our new business plan. Further, we cannot guarantee that we will be successful in realizing revenues from our new line of business or in achieving or sustaining positive cash flow at any time in the future. Any such failure could result in the possible closure of our business or force us to seek additional capital through loans or additional sales of our equity securities to continue business operations, which would dilute the value of any Shares you purchase.

 

We have a history of losses and have not achieved profitability.

 

As of the date of this prospectus, we have not yet achieved profitable operations, and we may never achieve profitability.

 

We need to raise substantial additional capital to fund our existing loan commitments and any future loans we may agree to make.

 

We may not be able to raise such funds when needed and on acceptable terms. To the extent we sell equity or debt securities as a source of funding will depend on a number of factors, including the prevailing market price of our common stock, the volume of trading in our common stock and the extent to which we are able to secure funds from other sources. Additional equity or debt financing or corporate collaboration may not be available on acceptable terms, if at all. If we are unable to raise additional capital in sufficient amounts or on terms acceptable to us, we will default on our outstanding loan obligations, be prevented from pursuing acquisition and commercialization efforts and our ability to generate revenues and achieve profitability will be substantially harmed.

 

The report from our independent registered public accounting firm in our consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020 , contains an explanatory paragraph referencing our conclusion that substantial doubt exists as to our ability to continue as a “going concern.”

 

The Company’s present revenues are insufficient to meet operating expenses. The financial statements of the Company have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates, among other things, the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As of September 30, 2021 , the Company has incurred cumulative net losses of $ 5,454,879 since its inception and requires capital for its contemplated operational and marketing activities to take place. The Company's ability to raise additional capital through the future issuances of common stock is unknown. Securing additional financing, the successful development of the Company's contemplated plan of operations, and its transition, ultimately, to the attainment of profitable operations are necessary for the Company to continue operations. The ability to successfully resolve these factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic may adversely affect our business.

 

Commercial mortgage lending may be subject to volatility during the ongoing COVID-19 and pandemic and may be adversely affected by a number of factors, including, but not limited to, national, regional and local economic conditions; local real estate conditions; changes or continued weakness in specific industry segments; construction quality, age and design; demographic factors; retroactive changes to building or similar codes; pandemics; natural disasters and other acts of god. In addition, decreases in property values reduce the value of the collateral and the potential proceeds available to a borrower to repay the underlying loans or loans, as the case may be, which could also cause us to suffer losses. Market volatility has been particularly heightened due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. COVID-19 has disrupted economic activities and could have a continued significant adverse effect on economic and market conditions including limited lending from financial institutions, depressed asset values, and limited market liquidity. At the present time, we are unable to estimate the potential adverse effect which the pandemic may have on our business, operations and financial condition.

 

 

 

Any loans we make may be highly illiquid – we therefore may not be able to liquidate such investments in a timely manner.

 

Any loans we make may be highly illiquid with no established market, and there can be no assurance that we will be able to liquidate such investments in a timely manner. Although loans and other investments we seek to make may generate current income, the return of capital and the realization of gains, if any, from such investments generally will occur only upon the partial or complete realization or disposition of such loan or investment. If we are unable to liquidate an investment when we desire, we may be unable to make additional loans without raising additional capital.

 

Loans made by us may become uncollectible and large amounts of uncollectible debt may materially affect our performance.

 

The loans made by us may be highly illiquid and involve substantial risks. Many, and possibly all, of the loans will not be personally guaranteed. We will attempt to use information to help eliminate uncollectible debt resulting from bankruptcy, but no assurance can be made that we will be able to do so. If our debt portfolio contains a large portion of uncollectible debt, our performance may be negatively affected. In addition, if any borrower defaults on a loan, we may be required to expend monies in connection with foreclosure proceedings and other remedial actions which could adversely affect our performance. Certain loans may be affected negatively by economic, political, interest rate and other risks, any of which could result in an adverse change in the value of the asset that is used as collateral for the loan.

 

The real estate loans we originate or acquire may be dependent on the ability of the property owner to generate net income from operating the property, which may result in the inability of such property owner to repay a loan, as well as the risk of foreclosure.

 

The ability of a borrower to repay a loan secured by an income-producing property typically is dependent primarily upon the successful operation of such property rather than upon the existence of independent income or assets of the borrower. If the net operating income of the property is reduced, the borrower’s ability to repay the loan may be impaired. Net operating income of an income-producing property can be adversely affected by, among other things:

 

  · tenant mix;

 

  · success of tenant businesses;

 

  · property management decisions;

 

  · property location, condition and design;

 

  · competition from comparable types of properties;

 

  · changes in national, regional or local economic conditions or specific industry segments;

 

  · declines in regional or local real estate values;

 

  · declines in regional or local rental or occupancy rates;

 

  · increases in interest rates, real estate tax rates and other operating expenses;

 

  · costs of remediation and liabilities associated with environmental conditions;

 

  · the potential for uninsured or underinsured property losses;

 

  · changes in governmental laws and regulations, including fiscal policies, zoning ordinances and environmental legislation and the related costs of compliance; and

 

  · acts of God, terrorism, social unrest and civil disturbances.

 

In the event of any default under a mortgage loan held directly by us, we will bear a risk of loss of interest and principal to the extent of any deficiency between the value of the collateral and the principal and accrued interest of the mortgage loan, which could have a material adverse effect on our cash flow from operations and limit amounts available for distribution to our stockholders. In the event of the bankruptcy of a mortgage loan borrower, the mortgage loan to such borrower will be deemed to be secured only to the extent of the value of the underlying collateral at the time of bankruptcy (as determined by the bankruptcy court), and the lien securing the mortgage loan will be subject to the avoidance powers of the bankruptcy trustee or debtor-in-possession to the extent the lien is unenforceable under state law.

 

Foreclosure can be an expensive and lengthy process and foreclosing on certain properties where we directly hold the mortgage loan and the borrower’s default under the mortgage loan is continuing could result in actions that could be costly to our operations, in addition to having a substantial negative effect on our anticipated return on the foreclosed mortgage loan.

We intend to use leverage as part of our investment strategy which may substantially increase our risk of loss.

 

We have anticipated that certain loans will be originated or purchased using leverage available to us, thus increasing both our return on equity as well as risk. Although the use of leverage as part of our investment strategy may enhance returns and increase the number of investments that can be made, it may also substantially increase our risk of loss. If we are unable to obtain loans at a rate lower than the rate on the loans we make, we will be unable to implement our investment strategy.

 

Our investment strategy is dependent upon servicers to originate and administer loans; failure of our servicers to originate loans in sufficient quantity and quality may cause us to fail to effectively implement our investment strategy.

 

While we have the ultimate determination over loan originations, we will depend upon servicers (i.e., third-party firms that specialize in this area) to service and administer loans in our portfolio. Should such servicers fail to properly administer and service loans, including monitoring borrower’s compliance with the terms of the relevant loan documents, collecting and forwarding loan payments to us, and adequately pursuing and protecting our rights under the loan documents, any such failure could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, financial condition and prospects.

 

In addition to servicers, we may retain mortgage brokers to introduce loans to us that satisfy our investment criteria and pay commissions to such mortgage brokers based on the value of such loans. Some of these mortgage brokers may be deemed to be affiliates of management. We believe that all commissions payable to such persons or other affiliates of management will be reasonable and consistent with industry standards.

 

We may appraise properties at a value that is materially different from the value ultimately realized.

 

We intend to make and value loans, in part, on the basis of information and data gathered from independent appraisal professionals. Although we expect to evaluate all such information and data and may seek independent corroboration when appropriate and reasonably available, we are not in a position to confirm the completeness, genuineness or accuracy of such information and data, and in some cases, complete and accurate information may not be available. It is possible that the appraised value of a property may differ materially from the actual value ultimately realized by us in the event we need to foreclose on such loan.

 

Our loan portfolio may be concentrated which could lead to increased risk.

 

It is possible that the portfolio of loans we make or any loan portfolio we may acquire will likely be concentrated in a limited number of loan investments. Thus, our stockholders may have limited diversification. In addition, if we make an investment in a single transaction with the intent of refinancing or selling a portion of the investment, there is a risk that we will be unable to successfully complete such a financing or sale. This could lead to increased risk as a result of having an unintended long-term investment and reduced diversification.

 

We intend to make collateralized real estate loans which will subject us to various risks associated with the real estate industry.

 

We intend to make loans collateralized by real estate. Therefore, an investment in us may be subject to certain risks associated with the real estate industry in general. These risks include, without limitation: possible declines in the value of real estate; risks related to general and local economic conditions; possible lack of availability of mortgage funds; overbuilding; extended vacancies of properties; increases in competition, property taxes and operating expenses; changes in zoning laws; costs resulting from the clean-up of, and liability to third parties for damages resulting from, environmental problems; casualty or condemnation losses; uninsured damages from floods, earthquakes or other natural disasters; limitations on and variations in rents; and changes in interest rates. To the extent that our investments, or the assets underlying or collateralizing our investments, are concentrated geographically, by property type or in certain other respects, we may be subject to the foregoing risks to a greater extent.

 

If third parties default or enter bankruptcy, we could suffer losses.

 

We may engage in transactions in securities and financial instruments that involve counterparties. Under certain conditions, we could suffer losses if a counterparty to a transaction were to default or if the market for certain securities and/or financial instruments were to become illiquid. In addition, we could suffer losses if there were a default or bankruptcy by certain other third parties, including brokerage firms and banks with which we do business, or to which securities have been entrusted for custodial purposes.

Purchases of investment securities could make us subject to the Investment Company Act.

 

As part of our business, we intend to purchase commercial mortgage-backed securities and other commercial real estate-related debt investments, as well as engage in various direct participation equity ownership opportunities. This could make us an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we intend to operate our business so that we do not become subject to the Investment Company Act. Accordingly, we do not plan to primarily engage in the business of investing, reinvesting or trading in securities and we do not plan to acquire investment securities (such as the above-referenced commercial mortgage-backed securities) having a value exceeding 40% of the value of the Company’s total assets. In the event we were to do so, we could inadvertently be subject to the requirements of the Investment Company Act of 1940, which could be costly and harm our business and financial results.

 

We currently rely on our chief executive officer and the loss of his services could have an adverse effect on the Company.

 

Until we further build up our management infrastructure, our success depends in large part upon the services of our chief executive officer, Todd C. Buxton.  The loss of his services would currently have a material adverse effect on Alpha Investment. We are not party to an employment agreement with our CEO and do not anticipate having key man insurance in place on him in the foreseeable future.

 

If we are unable to attract and retain additional personnel in the commercial lending field, our ability to compete will be harmed.

 

Attracting and retaining qualified personnel in the commercial lending field will be critical to our success, and competition for qualified personnel is intense. We may not be able to attract and retain such personnel on acceptable terms given the competition for such personnel. The inability to attract and retain qualified personnel could harm our business and our ability to compete.

 

We will face significant competition and if we are unable to effectively compete, our business, results of operations, financial condition and prospects may be seriously harmed.

 

The commercial lending field is highly competitive and we will face significant competition from other lenders, including banks, insurance companies and other lenders similar to us, many of which have significantly longer operating histories and financial resources than we do. We believe that we will be able to effectively compete based on our ability to leverage the industry experience, platforms and resources of Omega and its affiliates. Our relationship with Omega will enable us to expedite and facilitate our ability to underwrite and structure complex financing transactions and enable us to develop and implement customized creative capital solutions for other lenders, mortgage bankers, borrowers, and owners. However, there can be no assurance we can successfully do so and if we are unable to effectively compete, our business, results of operations, financial condition and prospects may be seriously harmed.

 

Risks Related to the Company’s Relationship with its Directors, Officers and Principal Stockholder

 

The Company does not have a policy that expressly prohibits its directors, officers and principal stockholders or their respective affiliates from engaging in their own commercial real estate lines of credit and or in business activities common with those conducted by the Company.

 

The Company does not have a policy that expressly prohibits its directors, officers, independent directors, principal stockholders or their respective affiliates from engaging for their own account in business activities of the types conducted by the Company. The Company’s code of business conduct and ethics contains a conflict of interest policy that prohibits our directors and executive officers, or whoever provides services to the Company, from engaging in any transaction that involves an actual conflict of interest with the Company, provided, however, that when the Company adds independent directors to its board upon completion of this offering, any such conflict may be waived by a majority vote of independent directors. In the event the Company’s common stock is listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market, it will be required to comply with any additional Nasdaq rules and policies regarding affiliate transactions.

 

There are various conflicts of interest in the Company’s relationships involving its directors and officers, which could result in decisions that are not in the best interest of the Company’s stockholders. The ability of the directors and its officers and employees to engage in other business activities may reduce the time the director and officers spend managing the Company’s business.

 

The Company is subject to conflicts of interest arising out of its relationship with directors and officers. The Company has in the past and may in the future enter commercial real estate lines of credit with its directors and officers. The Company has invested in and may in the future invest in, or acquire, certain investments through CRE lines of credit with its directors and officers. In addition, our Chief Executive Officer formerly occupied a similar position with Omega, our principal stockholder. There can be no assurance that any procedural protections will be sufficient to assure that these transactions will be made on terms that will be at least as favorable to the Company as those that would have been obtained in an arm’s length transaction.

 

12 

 

 

The Company's business may be adversely affected if its reputation, the reputation of its directors, officers or principal stockholder or the reputation of counterparties with whom the Company associates, is harmed.

 

The Company may be harmed by reputational issues and adverse publicity associated with the Company, or its directors, officers or principal stockholder. We and our principal stockholder have relationships with certain individuals that cause our principal stockholder adverse publicity and we may be subject to the same adverse publicity. Issues could include real or perceived legal or regulatory violations or could be the result of a failure in performance, risk-management, governance, technology or operations, or claims related to employee misconduct, conflict of interests, ethical issues or failure to protect private information, among others. Similarly, market rumors and actual or perceived association with counterparties whose own reputation is under question could harm the Company's business. Such reputational issues may cause third-parties, such as borrowers or mortgage brokers to cease doing business with us, which could cause a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations or cause the market price of our stock to be lower than it might otherwise be.

 

Risks Related to Our Status as a Public Company

 

We are and will continue to be subject to the periodic reporting requirements of the Exchange Act that require us to incur audit fees and legal fees in connection with the preparation of such reports.  These additional costs could reduce or eliminate our ability to earn a profit.

 

We are and after the date of this prospectus we will continue to be required to file periodic reports with the SEC pursuant to the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.  The costs charged by professionals for accounting and legal services in connection with these reports cannot be accurately predicted at this time because factors such as the number and type of transactions that we engage in and the complexity of our reports cannot be determined at this time and will have a major effect on the amount of time to be spent by our auditors and attorneys. Moreover, such costs are likely to further increase beginning in 2021, when we no longer qualify as an “emerging growth company.” The incurrence of such costs must be paid for from our operations and thus have a negative effect on our ability to meet our overhead requirements and earn a profit.  If we cannot provide reliable financial reports or prevent fraud, our business and operating results could be harmed, investors could lose confidence in our reported financial information, and the trading price of our Shares, if a market ever develops, could drop significantly.

 

Our internal controls may be inadequate, which could cause our financial reporting to be unreliable and lead to misinformation being disseminated to the public and we have identified material weaknesses in our internal controls and concluded that our internal controls are not effective.

 

We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision of our Chief Executive Officer of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer has concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of September 30, 2021, were not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms because of a material weaknesses in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

 

The Company did not maintain effective controls to identify and maintain segregation of duties to support the identification, authorization, approval, accounting for, and the disclosure of related-party transactions and significant unusual transactions. Specifically, one individual, the CEO, initiates related-party transactions and non-routine transactions. This CEO also reviews, evaluates, and approves these same transactions.

 

The Company does not have accounting policies and procedures to specify the correct treatment for estimating the allowance for doubtful accounts and bad debt expense of loans receivable. Specifically, a supporting analysis is not prepared for estimating the allowance for loan losses and bad debt expense. 

 

The Company’s board of directors does not demonstrate independence from management in exercising oversight of the development and performance of internal control over financial reporting. Specifically, there is no functioning audit committee or outside directors on the board of directors to exercise independent oversight over internal control over financial reporting.

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) or 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Risks Related to Our Shares, Our Corporate Structure and this Offering

 

You will experience immediate and substantial dilution and may experience additional dilution in the future.

 

If you purchase Shares in the Offering, you will incur immediate and substantial dilution of $4.96 per Share, representing the difference between the assumed initial public offering price of $5.00 per Share and our pro forma net tangible book value of $.04 per Share as of September 30, 2021, after giving effect to consummation of the Offering.

 

We do not expect to pay cash dividends in the foreseeable future.

 

We have never paid cash dividends on our common stock.  We do not expect to pay cash dividends on our common stock at any time in the foreseeable future.  The future payment of dividends directly depends upon our future earnings, capital requirements, financial requirements and other factors that our board of directors will consider.  Since we do not anticipate paying cash dividends on our common stock, return on your investment, if any, will depend solely on an increase, if any, in the market value of our common stock.

 

The future issuance of equity or of debt securities that are convertible into equity will dilute our Share capital.

 

We will need to raise additional capital to execute our business plan. To the extent that additional capital is raised through the issuance of Shares or other securities convertible into Shares, our stockholders will be diluted. Future issuances of our common stock or other equity securities, or the perception that such sales may occur, could adversely affect the trading price of our common stock and impair our ability to raise capital through future offerings of Shares or equity securities. No prediction can be made as to the effect, if any, that future sales of common stock or the availability of common stock for future sales will have on the trading price of our common stock.

 

The ability of Omega, our principal stockholder, to effectively control our business may limit or eliminate minority stockholders’ ability to influence corporate affairs.

 

Omega, our principal stockholder, will own the Series AA Preferred Stock and 1,278,139 Shares upon completion of this Offering, affording it, approximately 82.3% of the combined voting power of our capital stock voting upon completion of this Offering, or approximately 81.9% if the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option in full. Accordingly, they will be able to effectively control the election of directors, as well as all other matters requiring stockholder approval.  The interests of Omega may differ from the interests of other stockholders with respect to the issuance of Shares, business transactions with other companies, selection of other directors and other business decisions.  The minority stockholders have no way of overriding decisions made by Omega.  This level of control may also have an adverse impact on the market value of our Shares because Omega may institute or undertake transactions, policies or programs that result in losses and may not take any steps to increase our visibility in the financial community and/or may sell sufficient numbers of Shares to significantly decrease our price per Share.

 

As a “controlled company” under the Nasdaq Marketplace Rules, we may choose to exempt our Company from certain corporate governance requirements that could have an adverse effect on our public stockholders.

 

Under Rule 4350(c) of the Nasdaq Marketplace Rules, a company of which more than 50% of the voting power is held by an individual, group or another company is a “controlled company” and may elect not to comply with certain corporate governance requirements, including the requirement that a majority of our directors be independent, as defined in Nasdaq rules and the requirement that our compensation and nominating and corporate governance committees consist entirely of independent directors. Although we do not intend to rely on the “controlled company” exemption under Nasdaq rules, we could elect to rely on this exemption in the future. If we elect to rely on the “controlled company” exemption, a majority of the members of our board of directors might not be independent directors and our nominating and corporate governance and compensation committees might not consist entirely of independent directors. Accordingly, during any time while we remain a controlled company relying on the exemption and during any transition period following a time when we are no longer a controlled company, you would not have the same protections afforded to shareholders of companies that are subject to all of the Nasdaq corporate governance requirements. Our status as a controlled company could cause our common stock to look less attractive to certain investors or otherwise harm our trading price.

 

14 

 

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws provide for indemnification of officers and directors at our expense and limit their liability that may result in a major cost to us and hurt the interests of our stockholders because corporate resources may be expended for the benefit of officers and/or directors.

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws provide for the indemnification of our officers and directors.  We have been advised that, in the opinion of the SEC, indemnification for liabilities arising under federal securities laws is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is therefore, unenforceable.

 

Because our management will have broad discretion over the use of the net proceeds from the sale of Shares in the Offering, you may not agree with how we use them and the proceeds may not be invested successfully.

 

We intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of the Shares in the Offering to support core business operations in the commercial real estate lending sector, strategic acquisition of cash flowing real estate companies and or commercial real estate holdings and notes, as well as to expand administrative and support staff, as needed and for working capital and other general corporate purposes. Therefore, our management will have broad discretion as to the use of the net proceeds from the Offering. Accordingly, you will be relying on the judgment of our management with regard to the use of these net proceeds, and you will not have the opportunity, as part of your investment decision, to assess whether such proceeds are being used appropriately. It is possible that the proceeds will be invested in a way that does not yield a favorable, or any, return for the Company.

 

A liquid trading market for our Shares may not develop and be sustained.

 

Our Shares are quoted on the OTCPink tier of the over-the counter market operated by OTC Markets Group under the symbol “ALPC.” However, the trading market for our Shares has been extremely limited, there have only been minimal and sporadic public quotations for our Shares and there are no recent closing quotations for our Shares. In addition, quotation of our securities on the OTCPink may limit the liquidity and price of our securities more than if our securities were quoted or listed on the OTCQX or OTCQB tiers of the over-the-counter market, the Nasdaq Stock Market or other national securities exchange. Further, institutional and other investors may have investment guidelines that restrict or prohibit investing in securities traded on the OTCPink tier of the over-the counter market. These factors may have an adverse impact on the trading and price of our common stock, if a liquid market develops and is sustained. We have applied to list our common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “ALPC”. No assurance can be given that our application will be approved.

 

A liquid trading market for our Shares may never develop or be sustained following the Offering. If a liquid market for our common stock does not develop, or if developed, is not sustained, it may be difficult for you to sell Shares you purchase in the Offering without depressing the market price for the Shares or at all.

 

The market price for our common stock, assuming a liquid trading market develops and is sustained, may be particularly volatile given our status as a relatively unknown company with a small and thinly traded public float, limited operating history and lack of profits which could lead to wide fluctuations in our Share price. You may be unable to sell your Shares at or above your purchase price, which may result in substantial losses to you.

 

The market for our common stock, assuming a liquid trading market develops and is sustained may be characterized by significant price volatility when compared to seasoned issuers, and we expect that our Share price will continue to be more volatile than a seasoned issuer for the indefinite future. The volatility in our Share price is attributable to a number of factors. First, as noted above, our common stock is sporadically and thinly traded. As a consequence of this lack of liquidity, the trading of relatively small quantities of Shares by our stockholders may disproportionately influence the price of those Shares in either direction. The price for our Shares could, for example, decline precipitously in the event that a large number of our common stock are sold on the market without commensurate demand, as compared to a seasoned issuer which could better absorb those sales without adverse impact on its share price. Secondly, we are a speculative or “risky” investment due to our limited operating history and lack of profits to date, and uncertainty of future market acceptance for our potential products and services. As a consequence of this enhanced risk, more risk-adverse investors may, under the fear of losing all or most of their investment in the event of negative news or lack of progress, be more inclined to sell their Shares on the market more quickly and at greater discounts than would be the case with the stock of a seasoned issuer. Many of these factors are beyond our control and may decrease the market price of our common stock, regardless of our operating performance. We cannot make any predictions or projections as to what the prevailing market price for our common stock will be at any time, including as to whether our common stock will sustain their current market prices, or as to what effect that the sale of Shares or the availability of common stock for sale at any time will have on the prevailing market price.

 

15 

 

 

 

If securities or industry analysts do not publish research or reports about our business, or if they issue an adverse or misleading opinion regarding our stock, our stock price and trading volume could decline.

 

The trading market for our common stock, assuming a liquid market develops and is sustained, will be influenced by the research and reports that industry or securities analysts publish about us or our business. We do not currently have and may never obtain research coverage by securities and industry analysts. If no or few securities or industry analysts commence coverage of us, the trading price for our Shares would be negatively impacted. In the event we obtain securities or industry analyst coverage, if any of the analysts who cover us issue an adverse or misleading opinion regarding us, our business model, our intellectual property or our stock performance, or if our target studies and operating results fail to meet the expectations of analysts, our stock price would likely decline. If one or more of these analysts cease coverage of us or fail to publish reports on us regularly, we could lose visibility in the financial markets, which in turn could cause our stock price or trading volume to decline.

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This prospectus contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. The SEC encourages companies to disclose forward-looking information so that investors can better understand a company’s future prospects and make informed investment decisions. This prospectus and other written and oral statements that we make from time to time contain such forward-looking statements that set out anticipated results based on management’s plans and assumptions regarding future events or performance. We have tried, wherever possible, to identify such statements by using terminology such as “may,” “could,” “will,” “would,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “intend,” “predict,” “seek,” “contemplate,” “project,” “continue,” “potential,” “ongoing” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These statements relate to future events or to our future financial performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, those described in the section titled “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this prospectus.

 

Any forward-looking statement in this prospectus reflects our current view with respect to future events and is subject to these and other risks, uncertainties and assumptions relating to our operations, results of operations, industry and future growth. Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Except as required by law, we assume no obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements for any reason, even if new information becomes available in the future.

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

The Shares in the Offering are being offered and sold on a “firm commitment” basis, which means the underwriters are obligated to take and pay for all the shares offered by this prospectus if any such shares are taken contingent upon the passing upon of certain legal matters by counsel and certain conditions such as confirmation of the accuracy of representations and warranties by us about our financial condition and operations and other matters. The obligation of the underwriters to purchase the Shares is conditioned upon our receiving approval to list the shares of common stock on Nasdaq. The underwriters are not required to take or pay for the shares covered by the over-allotment option to purchase additional shares of common stock.

 

We estimate that net proceeds to us from the sale of our Shares in this Offering will be approximately $8,767,000 based on the assumed offering price of $5.00 per Share, or approximately $10,147,000, if the Representative exercises the over-allotment option in full, and after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us.

 

Each $1.00 increase (decrease) in the assumed initial public offering price of $5.00 per Share would increase (decrease) the net proceeds to us from this offering by approximately$0.92.__ per Share, assuming the number of shares of common stock offered by us, as set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, remains the same and after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us.

 

We intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of the Shares in the Offering to support our core business operations in the commercial real estate lending sector involving the funding of senior debt and mezzanine financings for income producing properties and commercial construction loans as needed. We may also use a portion of the net proceeds of the Offering to participate on an equity basis in strategic opportunities, projects and businesses, which management believes have the potential of bringing added value to our stockholders. In addition, a portion of the net proceeds of this Offering will be used for working capital and other general corporate purposes. 

 

The expected use of the net proceeds from this Offering represents our intentions based upon our current plans and business conditions, which could change in the future as our plans and business conditions evolve. We cannot predict with certainty all of the particular uses for the proceeds of this offering or the amounts that we will actually spend on the uses set forth above. The amounts and timing of our actual expenditures depend on numerous factors, including lending and acquisition opportunities which arise, as well as the state of the markets we plan to operate in. Accordingly, our management will have broad discretion in the use of the net proceeds from the Offering and could spend the proceeds in ways that do not improve our results of operations or enhance the value of our Shares.

Does not include (a) 1,375,000 Shares reserved for issuance under the Incentive Plan; (b) 1,075.668 Shares issuable upon conversion of (i) 36,667 shares of outstanding Series 2018 Preferred Stock; (ii) 1,167 shares of outstanding Series A Convertible Preferred Stock; and (iii) 100,000 shares of Series AA Preferred Stock; and (c) 520,000 Shares issuable upon the exercise of outstanding warrants sold in connection with the sale of the Series 2018 Preferred Stock.

 

DILUTION

 

If you invest in our Shares in this Offering, your interest will be diluted to the extent of the difference between the offering price per Share and the pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value per Share immediately after this Offering.

 

Our historical net tangible book value as of September 30, 2021 was $482,592 or $0.05 per share.

 

After giving effect to the receipt of the net proceeds of this Offering (based on an assumed offering price of $5.00 per Share, our pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value as of September 30, 2021 would have been $9,249,592 or $0.79 per Share. This amount represents an immediate increase in pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value of $0.74 per Share to our existing stockholders and an immediate dilution in pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value of $4.21 per Share to new investors purchasing Shares in this Offering. We determine dilution by subtracting the pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value per Share after this Offering from the amount of cash that a new investor paid for a Share. The following table illustrates this dilution on a per Share basis:

 

Initial public offering price per Share  $5.00 
Net tangible book value per Share as of September 30, 2021  $0.05 
Increase in pro forma net tangible book value per Share attributable to new investors participating in the Offering  $0.74 
Pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value per Share after the Offering  $0.79 
Dilution of pro forma net tangible book value per Share to new investors  $4.21 
Percentage of dilution of pro forma net tangible book value per Share to new investors   84.20%

 

The dilution information discussed above is illustrative only and may change based on the actual offering price and other terms of this Offering. Each $1.00 increase (decrease) in the assumed offering price of $5.00 per Share would increase (decrease) our pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value per Share after this Offering by $ 0.16 per Share and increase (decrease) the dilution to new investors by $( 0.84 ) per Share, in each case assuming the number of Shares offered by us, as set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, remains the same, and after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us.

 

The following table sets forth, on a pro forma as adjusted basis as of September 30, 2021 , the number of Shares purchased or to be purchased from us, the total consideration paid or to be paid and the average price per share paid or to be paid by existing holders of

common stock and by new investors, at a public offering price of $5.00 per Share, before deducting estimated expenses of the Offering payable by us.

 

   SHARES PURCHASED   TOTAL CONSIDERATION   AVERAGE PRICE 
   NUMBER   PERCENT   AMOUNT   PERCENT   PER SHARE 
Existing stockholders   9,724,401    82.9%  $2,128,005    17.5%  $0.22 
New investors   2,000,000    17.1%  $10,000,000    82.5%  $5.00 
Total   11,724,401    100.0%  $12,128,005    100.0%     

 

The foregoing discussion and tables are based on the number of Shares outstanding as of the date of this prospectus, but excluding (a) 1,375,000 Shares reserved for issuance under the Incentive Plan; (b) 1,075.668 Shares issuable upon conversion of (i) 36,667 shares of outstanding Series 2018 Preferred Stock; (ii) 1,167 shares of outstanding Series A Convertible Preferred Stock; and (iii) 100,000 shares of Series AA Preferred Stock; and (c) 520,000 Shares issuable upon the exercise of outstanding warrants sold in connection with the sale of the Series 2018 Preferred Stock.

 

Each $1.00 increase (decrease) in the assumed offering price of $5.00 per share would increase (decrease) the total consideration paid by new investors and total consideration paid by all stockholders by approximately $ 1,840,000 assuming that the number of Shares offered by us, as set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, remains the same and after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us.

 

If the Representative exercises the over-allotment option in full, the total number of Shares held by new investors will increase to 2,300,000 Shares, or 19.1% of the total number of shares outstanding following the closing of this Offering.

BUSINESS

 

Overview

 

We intend to provide capital directly to borrowers seeking financing for commercial real estate properties either for refinancing or acquisitions. These loans will encompass originating performing commercial first mortgage loans, subordinate financings, and other commercial real estate-related debt. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we intend to operate our business so that we do not become subject to the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. Accordingly, we do not plan to primarily engage in the business of investing, reinvesting or trading in securities and we do not plan to acquire investment securities (such as commercial mortgage-backed securities) having a value exceeding 40% of the value of the Company’s total assets.

 

We expect to offer financing across a broad-spectrum of asset backed and commercial real asset type collateral property type such as office, retail, industrial, multi-family, and hospitality. The Company will coordinate its lending initiatives with outside commercial real estate loan brokers, which have access to commercial real estate owners seeking financing or refinancing opportunities, and with loan origination firms that have borrowers seeking loans. We believe that this will enable ALPC to broaden its access to new Borrowers and to develop and implement financing solutions for these other lenders, mortgage bankers, borrowers, and owners. In the event the Company uses third party loan origination services and underwriters, the Company will cover these costs in accordance with industry standard practices. In addition, the Company from time to time will also engage in participating equity financing within strategic opportunistic projects and businesses that could bring added value to shareholders.

 

The Company expects to require substantial capital to fully fund and implement its operations. The Company plans to raise such capital through the Offering covered hereby, from alternative offerings of debt or other securities or through joint venture partnerships. There can be no assurance that the Company can successfully raise such financing or consummate alternative offerings of its debt or other securities or joint venture partnerships on favorable terms or otherwise. If such efforts are not successful, then we may be unable to honor funding commitments or be forced to curtail our operations or consider other strategic alternatives.

 

Investment Strategy

 

To identify attractive lending opportunities, the Company expects to continue to deploy its capital through the origination of commercial mortgage loans, subordinate financings and other commercial real-estate related debt investments at attractive risk-adjusted yields. The Company targets lending opportunities that are secured by commercial real estate. The Company’s underwriting includes a focus on stressed in-place cash flows, debt yields, debt service coverage ratios, loan-to-value ratios, property quality and market and sub-market dynamics

 

Potential Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on our Business

 

Commercial mortgage lending may be subject to volatility during the ongoing COVID-19 and pandemic and may be adversely affected by a number of factors, including, but not limited to, national, regional and local economic conditions; local real estate conditions; changes or continued weakness in specific industry segments; construction quality, age and design; demographic factors; retroactive changes to building or similar codes; pandemics; natural disasters and other acts of God . In addition, decreases in property values reduce the value of the collateral and the potential proceeds available to a borrower to repay the underlying loans or loans, as the case may be, which could also cause us to suffer losses. Market volatility has been particularly heightened due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. COVID-19 has disrupted economic activities and could have a continued significant adverse effect on economic and market conditions including limited lending from financial institutions, depressed asset values, and limited market liquidity. At the present time, we are unable to estimate the potential adverse effect which the pandemic may have on our business, operations and financial condition.

 

Corporate History

 

We were incorporated in the State of Delaware on February 22, 2013, to develop, create, manufacture and market toys for small children which would be designed to attach to car seats and amuse and entertain children during a drive, without distracting the attention of the driver. The Company, however, encountered significant constraints in raising sufficient capital to fully implement its business plan.

 

On March 17, 2017, Omega purchased 35,550,000 outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Control Share Sale”) from Malcolm Hargrave (35,000,000 shares), DTH International Corporation (500,000 shares) and Lisa Foster (50,000 shares) for aggregate consideration of $295,000. The Control Share Sale was consummated in a private transaction pursuant to a common stock purchase agreement entered between Omega and Mr. Hargrave, acting individually and on behalf of the other selling stockholders. Upon completion of the Control Share Sale, a “Change in Control” of the Company took place and in connection therewith, Mr. Hargrave resigned as our sole director and officer and Omega, as the new majority stockholder of the Company, elected Timothy R. Fussell, Ph.D. as President, Chairman of the Board and a director (Dr. Fussell stepped down from those positions in April 2020) and Todd C. Buxton, Omega’s then Chief Executive Officer, as Chief Executive Officer, Vice Chairman of the Board and a director.

 

22 

 

 

In addition to the foregoing, new management elected to shift the Company’s business focus to real estate lending, which they believed offered better opportunities for shareholder growth. In connection therewith, on March 30, 2017, we filed a Certificate of Amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State changing our name from “Gogo Baby, Inc.” to “Alpha Investment Inc.” to better reflect our new business plan.   The name change and a corresponding change in the Company’s OTC markets trading symbol from GGBY to ALPC received approval from FINRA and became effective as of April 19, 2017.

 

Capital Restructuring

 

In order to provide the Company with the capital structure needed to complete this Offering, in 2021 the Company implemented a capital restructuring pursuant to which:

 

    ·     Omega Commercial Finance Corporation (“Omega”), our principal stockholder, exchanged 31,070,000 shares of our common stock held by it for 100,000 shares of a newly designated Series AA Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series AA Preferred Stock”); and

 

  · ·        Holders of an additional 1,965,000 shares of our common stock contributed such shares to the capital of the Company.

 

Each share of Series AA Preferred Stock is convertible at the option of the holder into ten (10) shares of the Company’s common stock for an aggregate of 1,000,000 shares of common stock, subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends and similar transactions. The Series AA Preferred Stock has a liquidation preference of $1.00 per share and is entitled to share ratably in dividends declared on the Company’s common stock on an “as converted” basis.

 

Each share of Series AA Preferred Stock is entitled to 450 votes on each matter presented to stockholders (subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends and similar transactions). Shares of Series AA Preferred Stock vote together shares of our common stock as a single class, except as required by Delaware law. Accordingly, Omega, as the holder of the Series AA Preferred Stock and 1,278,139 Shares, will control between 82.3 % and 91.9 % of the combined voting power of our capital stock upon completion of this Offering and therefore will control the Company’s affairs following the consummation of this Offering. Moreover, we will be deemed to be a “controlled company” as defined under Nasdaq Marketplace Rules. However, even if we qualify as a “controlled company,” we do not intend to rely on the controlled company exemptions provided under Nasdaq Marketplace Rules.

 

Plan of Operations

 

Our core objective will be to achieve advantageous yields and consistent interest income on short to long term loans (“Loans”) covering all four lending categories such as prime, alt-A, bridge and hard money loans by:

 

  furnishing capital to make Loans primarily to borrowers such as commercial real estate developers and speculators, business owners, landlords and owners of core assets when traditional financing is unavailable to such borrowers for acquisitions, refinancing of commercial property loans; and
     
  making Loans directly to borrowers in the commercial real estate markets.

 

We plan to administer various financing programs with an emphasis on Loans secured by commercial real estate, such as office buildings, multi-family residences, shopping centers, industrial, and hotels. Loans may consist of senior debt loans, mezzanine or subordinated loans, preferred equity and other equity participation financing structures.

 

We intend to follow a “conservative lending” profile for our Loans.  Our strategy is to seek low leveraged first lien senior debt mortgage loans and high debt service structured financing programs, as opposed to riskier, less secure, mezzanine or equity positions.

 

Business Objectives and Strategy

 

Our core business objective is to achieve advantageous and consistent rates of return from short to long term Loans to borrowers when traditional financing is unavailable to such borrowers for acquisitions, refinancing of commercial property loans and other asset backed transactions. We plan to focus on various alternative commercial real estate financings with an emphasis on Loans secured by commercial real estate and also seek to invest in financing of core real estate assets that include office buildings, multi-family residences, shopping centers, and hospitality, plus ground up entitled land developments. The Loans may consist of senior debt loans, mezzanine or subordinated loans, preferred equity and other equity participation financing structures. We intend to follow a “conservative lending” profile for the Loans we fund, which means low loan to value and high debt service cover ratios. Our strategy is to seek Loans that are first lien, senior debt mortgage loans and specialty financing programs, as opposed to riskier, yet much more profitable, and less secure mezzanine or equity positions.

 

23 

 

 

Use of Loan Servicers

 

In carrying out our business strategy, we will likely utilize third-party firms that specialize in Loan origination and servicing (“Servicers”).  We intend to perform due diligence on each Servicer which we, directly or indirectly, plan to use in the origination and servicing of Loans, in order to evaluate the firm’s experience and expertise in originating and servicing Loans that satisfy our lending and investment criteria.

 

Use of Other Third-Party Service Providers

 

We will utilize other third parties to provide various ancillary services to us, such as real estate evaluation and land feasibility appraisal services, closing-legal and escrow title services.

 

Sale of Participations; Co-Investments and Participations

 

In the discretion of management, we may sell participation rights in the Loans we originate to other entities.

 

We may from time to time co-invest and or syndicate participation interest in loans as the administrative agent or buying a participation interest. We plan to only employ this strategy with seasoned well-established organizations in the commercial real estate (“CRE”) lending industry such as private trusts, real estate financing institutions, mutual funds, pension funds, investment houses, or hedge fund of funds.  We believe that this will afford the Company with an additional opportunity to participate in well-structured transactions with organizations with proven track records involving originating, underwriting, and servicing.

 

The Commercial Real Estate Lending Product

 

Operationally, management believes the market for commercial mortgage loans will offer opportunities for the deployment of capital we raise.  The CRE markets have suffered greatly in recent years beginning with the 2008 U.S. financial market crisis, which resulted in a steep and prolonged recession. However, as the lending markets have steadily recovered along with market leaders such as large banks Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America and Capital One, we believe the CRE lending landscape has now stabilized in select Centralized Business Districts known as “CBD’s” and afford extremely attractive opportunities for deploying capital. Thus, we will focus on positioning the Company to seize this opportunity within this market.  We believe that our proposed business model is comparable to that currently being used by some of the top-level commercial real estate lender industry professionals. However, to compete and succeed within this industry, we plan to develop a proprietary pricing and lending model for the commercial real estate finance debt and equity markets.  If we are able to do so, as to which no assurance can be given, we believe that we will have a strategic advantage to compete in the market.

 

The Commercial Real Estate Market Forecast 2021 *

 

National

 

· Those hoping a post-pandemic economy will swiftly return to conditions prevailing in late 2019 are going to be disappointed.
· Real GDP is still $670 billion off the pre-COVID peak. A return to the prior real GDP peak is projected in the first quarter of 2022 at the earliest, or second quarter 2023 at the latest.
· The jobs recovery to prior peak is September 2024, at best, and October 2026, at worst.
· Cap rates for real estate and commercial property mortgage rates have remained stable. With commercial property transactions down 50 percent, year over year, risk-adjusted returns are high and will remain that way into 2021.
· Interest rates are anticipated to remain low through 2023, or even 2024.
· Monetary policy will keep the sluice gates of capital wide open, bringing an optimistic air to private sector capital markets both on the equity and the debt side.
· Coronavirus disruption is creating innovation opportunities across a swath of industries: technology, communications, pharmaceuticals, health services, and even retailing and financial services.

 

Office:

 

· The roughly five billion-square-foot U.S. office market has been directly in the crosshairs of the coronavirus pandemic and no part of the country—urban or rural—has proved immune.
· According to Integra’s market survey, quantifiable comparisons across regions and property classes indicate the market is sorting itself out in a ‘flight to quality’ rather than ‘a flight to cost-advantage.’
· The pandemic disruption has shrunk transactions so steeply that office investors should be cautious about drawing firm conclusions at this point.

 

24 

 

 

 

· From the point of view of property operations, the East and West regions are sustaining the highest market rents and strongest occupancy levels.
· The pattern of the future may require a transformative change in the physical, operational, and financial aspects of the office markets, rather than a comforting return to normalcy.

 

Multifamily:

 

· Most of the nation’s largest and most visible multifamily markets are those mired in recession: New York, Boston, Chicago, Miami, Houston, Seattle, and Portland, among them.
· There appears to be an intriguing disconnect between the elements that renters themselves and investors are prioritizing in the stress test that is this pandemic. For while market cycle indicators seem to reflect advantage accruing to the least expensive rental markets, the cap rate data show preference for urban properties over suburban assets, and Class A over Class B apartments – and this is true across regions, as well as being consistent in the discount rate and reversion rate pricing metrics.

 

Retail:

 

· The rise of e-commerce has been accelerated by the pandemic, and it is questionable whether consumer habits will return to in-store shopping once the public health emergency is past.
· It is no surprise that more than half of the retail markets evaluated in IRR’s annual Market Cycle survey are rated as being ‘in recession.’
· Declining market rents are the norm today.
· At some point around mid-2021, the economy will be decisively putting the public health crisis behind it, and a more familiar pattern of consumer behavior will restore to physical retail properties some of the market share that has been captured, by default, in e-commerce.

 

Industrial:

 

· As U.S. employment dropped during the pandemic, the warehouse and storage sector saw a net increase of 46,000 jobs, or 3.8 percent. As in so many ways, Amazon has set the pace both in jobs and in industrial property use. 
· One of the key lessons of the coronavirus crisis has been the need to re-think supply chain management with businesses supplementing traditional, ‘just-in-time’ strategies, meant to minimize costs, with ‘just-in-case’ measures.
· Fully 80 percent of the industrial markets are deemed in recovery or in expansion in this year’s IRR survey of cyclical conditions.
· A combination of solid performance in 2020 and reasonably anticipated economic improvement later in 2021 should bring buyers off the sidelines relatively soon.

 

Hospitality:

 

· The lodging market has been devastated by the pandemic. IRR does not anticipate a return to pre-pandemic metrics until early 2024 due to decreased demand.

 

25 

 

 

 

· The top markets for occupancy include Phoenix, Atlanta, Norfolk/VA Beach, Los Angeles/Long Beach, San Diego, and Tampa/St. Petersburg. The hardest hit states were Hawaii (-65.2 percent), followed by Illinois, Massachusetts, New York (-49.1 percent), California, and Florida.
· Operators are placing emphasis on sanitation/cleaning protocols, increased customer service, and digital check-ins. Due to limited capacities, daily operations are changing, and operators are looking for alternative sources of guests, as they re-purpose under-utilized spaces. 
· Sellers are finding new, non-traditional buyer pools, as cities and counties are purchasing underperforming hotels for transitional and low-income housing requirements. 
· As the U.S. exits the current pandemic, major mergers and acquisitions activity is anticipated among the ‘Big 6’ hotel companies.

 

Healthcare and Senior Housing Specialty Property Report:

 

· Cash flows at many properties have been disrupted by reduced occupancy, higher operating expenses, possible lowering of rent caused by changes in short-term demand, and additional risk premiums applied to the capitalization processes. Lower interest rates are an offsetting force. 
· While the pandemic caused a net reduction in occupied units, slowed move-ins and accelerated move-outs, senior housing continued to grow in 2021.

· Healthcare is performing better than retail and hospitality, but valuations have declined more than residential and industrial. 
· Nursing Home occupancy has been declining for years.
· Industry consolidation via mergers and acquisitions remains an ongoing trend in the hospital industry.

Loan Production Strategy

 

We have access to a database of top commercial real estate mortgage bankers nationwide through organizations such as Strategic Alliance Mortgage, LLC (“SAM”), which is a company comprised of the top independently owned commercial real estate mortgage banking firms located throughout the United States. Through SAM, firms utilizes their shared national knowledge to execute superior capital market solutions for developers, commercial real estate investors, investment management firms, asset management firms, real estate investment trusts and private real estate equity firms with the goal of utilizing their production networks. We have focused on firms that have experienced loan origination back office staff to ensure our CRE Loan services will be appropriately and professionally marketed. Also, management has a proprietary database of 50 to 100 mortgage bankers to market their CRE Loan products to and generate Loan production internally for consistent deal flow. In addition, we believe that as our operations expand, we always have the opportunity to establish and retain an in-house sales team.

 

Competition

 

A number of much larger proven commercial real estate lenders such as JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Goldman, Apollo Commercial Real Estate, and RAIT currently have established operations with large balance sheets and back office staff. However, we are a non-banking institution and are not regulated like the larger banks or typical CMBS lenders in that we are not “pigeon-holed” into securitizing our assets. Rather, we elect to use these industry standards and underwriting characteristics to originate loans, to consequently mitigate liquidly-risk (i.e. recapitalization) with the ability to hold these loans on the un-tainted balance sheet in order to garner stable income to yield strong growth and market share. However, as most of these lenders have far longer operating histories and significantly larger financial resources than we do, there can be no assurance given that we can effectively compete.

 

Employees

 

We currently have no employees other than our executive officers. As noted above, we intend to rely on third parties retained by us for services in areas such as loan origination and production, credit analysis, underwriting, due diligence, and loan servicing. As our operations grow, we may elect to bring certain, if not all of these services in house.

 

Properties

 

Our principal executive offices are located at 200 East Campus View Blvd. Suite 200 Columbus, OH 43235, where we lease space from Omega, our principal stockholder, on a month to month basis at a monthly rent of $79.

Legal Proceedings

 

Currently there are no legal proceedings pending or threatened against us.  However, from time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business.  Litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in any such matter may harm our business, results of operations, financial condition and business prospects.

Interest expense for year ended December 31, 2020 was $12,983, approximately $9,000 resulting from the redemption of common stock presented in temporary equity and the release of escrow, and $3,000 relate to the related party note issued in October 2000.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, Omega, the principal stockholder of the Company, made additional capital contributions to the Company of $191,211. In 2020, $2.5 million was released from escrow and paid to an investor for redemption of common stock, Omega made cash contributions of $425,000, and the Company received $20,800 from a payroll protection loan

 

The Company expects to require substantial capital to fully fund and implement its operations. The Company plans to raise such capital through the Offering, from alternative offerings of debt or other securities or through joint venture partnerships. There can be no assurance that the Company can successfully complete its pending direct public offering or consummate alternative offerings of its debt or other securities or joint venture partnerships on favorable terms or otherwise. If such efforts are not successful, then we may be forced to curtail our operations or consider other strategic alternatives. Even if we are successful in raising additional financing, there is no assurance regarding the terms of any additional investment and any such investment or other strategic alternative would likely substantially dilute our current stockholders.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.  Significant estimates included deferred revenue, costs incurred related to deferred revenue, the useful lives of property and equipment and the useful lives of intangible assets.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC 740, Accounting for Income Taxes, as clarified by ASC 740-10, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes.  Under this method, deferred income taxes are determined based on the estimated future tax effects of differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities given the provisions of enacted tax laws.  Deferred income tax provisions and benefits are based on changes to the assets or liabilities from year to year.  In providing for deferred taxes, the Company considers tax regulations of the jurisdictions in which the Company operates, estimates of future taxable income, and available tax planning strategies.  If tax regulations, operating results or the ability to implement tax-planning strategies vary, adjustments to the carrying value of deferred tax assets and liabilities may be required.  Valuation allowances are recorded related to deferred tax assets based on the “more likely than not” criteria of ASC 740.

 

ASC 740-10 requires that the Company recognize the financial statement benefit of a tax position only after determining that the relevant tax authority would more likely than not sustain the position following an audit.  For tax positions meeting the “more-likely-than-not” threshold, the amount recognized in the financial statements is the largest benefit that has a greater than 50 percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the relevant tax authority.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

There are no 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.

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

 

Capital Stock

Common Stock

 

As of the date of this prospectus, 9,724,401 shares of common stock are issued and outstanding.  The shares of common stock presently outstanding are, and the Shares being offered and sold in the Offering, when issued and paid for as contemplated herein, will be, fully paid and non-assessable.  Each holder of common stock is entitled to one vote for each share owned on all matters voted upon by shareholders, and a majority vote is required for all actions to be taken by shareholders.  In the event we liquidate, dissolve or wind-up our operations, the holders of the common stock are entitled to share equally and ratably in our assets, if any, remaining after the payment of all our debts and liabilities and the liquidation preference of any shares of preferred stock that may then be outstanding.  The common stock has no preemptive rights, no cumulative voting rights, and no redemption, sinking fund, or conversion provisions.

 

Holders of common stock are entitled to receive dividends, if and when declared by the board of directors, out of funds legally available for such purpose, subject to the dividend and liquidation rights of any preferred stock that may then be outstanding.

 

Preferred Stock

 

General

 

Our board of directors has the authority, without further action by the stockholders, to issue shares of preferred stock in one or more series and to fix the rights, preferences and the number of shares constituting any series or the designation of such series.  While our Certificate of Incorporation and bylaws do not contain any provisions that may delay, defer or prevent a change in control, the issuance of preferred stock may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change in control or make removal of our management more difficult. As of the date of this prospectus, the Company has outstanding, 36,667 shares of Series 2018 Preferred Stock. 1,167 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and 100,000 shares of Series AA Preferred Stock.

 

Series 2018 Preferred Stock

 

The Series 2018 Preferred Stock was sold, together with warrants to purchase 520,000 Shares, in November 2017, to a single accredited investor in a private transaction for $360,000. The Series 2018 Preferred Stock does not have dividend or voting rights but is mandatorily redeemable at the option of the Company (unless converted as set forth below), on the tenth anniversary of issuance at a redemption price equal to stated value of $15.00 per share. Each share of Series 2018 Preferred Stock may, at the option of the holder, be converted at any time prior to redemption into two shares of the Company’s common stock (subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends and similar recapitalization transactions). In the event of liquidation, the Series 2018 Preferred Stock shares ratably in the assets of the Company available for distribution to stockholders.

 

Series A Convertible Preferred Stock

 

The Series A Preferred Convertible Stock, which was sold in January 2018 to a single investor in a private transaction for $15.00 per share does not have dividend or voting rights but is mandatorily redeemable by the Company (unless converted as set forth below) on the fifth anniversary of issuance at a redemption price equal to stated value of $15.00 per share. Each share of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock may, at the option of the holder, be converted at any time prior to redemption into two shares of the Company’s common stock (subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends and similar recapitalization transactions). In the event of liquidation, the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock shares ratably in the assets of the Company available for distribution to stockholders.

 

Series AA Preferred Stock

 

Each share of Series AA Preferred Stock is convertible at the option of the holder into ten (10) shares of the Company’s common stock for an aggregate of 1,000,000 shares of common stock, subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends and similar transactions. The Series AA Preferred Stock has a liquidation preference of $1.00 per share and is entitled to share ratably in dividends declared on the Company’s common stock on an “as converted” basis.

 

37 

 

 

Each share of Series AA Preferred Stock is entitled to 450 votes on each matter presented to stockholders (subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends and similar transactions). Shares of Series AA Preferred Stock vote together shares of our common stock as a single class, except as required by Delaware law. Accordingly, Omega, as the holder of the Series AA Preferred Stock will effectively maintain control over the Company’s affairs following implementation of the consummation of this Offering.

 

Warrants

 

In November 2018, the Company issued warrants to purchase 520,000 Shares in connection with the sale of the Series 2018 Preferred Stock. The Warrants are exercisable for a period of five years from issuance at an exercise price of $15.00 per Share but may also be exercised on a “cashless” basis. The exercise price of the warrants is subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends and similar recapitalization transactions.

 

SHARES ELIGIBLE FOR FUTURE SALE

 

Currently all 9,724,401 shares of our common stock outstanding as of the date of this prospectus and not covered by this Registration Statement, are eligible for sale in the public market from time to time thereafter pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act, and in some cases, subject to the volume and other restrictions of Rule 144. The sale of a significant number of Shares of our common stock in the public market or the perception that such sales may occur could significantly reduce the market price of our common stock.

 

Rule 144

 

In general, under Rule 144 under the Securities Act, a person (or persons whose Shares are aggregated) who is not deemed to have been an affiliate of ours at any time during the three months preceding a sale, and who has beneficially owned restricted securities within the meaning of Rule 144 for at least six (6) months (including any period of consecutive ownership of preceding non-affiliated holders) would be entitled to sell those Shares, subject only to the availability of current public information about us. A non-affiliated person who has beneficially owned restricted securities within the meaning of Rule 144 for at least one year would be entitled to sell those Shares without regard to the provisions of Rule 144.

 

A person (or persons whose Shares are aggregated) who is deemed to be an affiliate of ours and who has beneficially owned restricted securities within the meaning of Rule 144 for at least six (6) months would be entitled to sell within any three-month period a number of Shares that does not exceed the greater of one percent of the then outstanding shares of our common stock or the average weekly trading volume of our common stock reported through Nasdaq or such other market on which our shares of common stock are listed for trading during the four calendar weeks preceding such sale. Such sales are also subject to certain manner of sale provisions, notice requirements and the availability of current public information about us.

 

UNDERWRITING

 

In connection with this offering, we will enter into an underwriting agreement with Boustead Securities, LLC (who we refer to as the Representative), as representative of the underwriters named in this prospectus, with respect to the Shares in this offering. Under the terms and subject to the conditions contained in the underwriting agreement, each of the underwriters has severally agreed to purchase, and we have agreed to sell to the underwriters, the number of Shares listed next to its name in the following table. 

 

Underwriters   Number
of Shares
 
Boustead Securities, LLC     2,000,000  
Total     2,000,000  

 

The Shares sold by the underwriters to the public will initially be offered at the initial public offering price set forth on the cover page of this prospectus. Any Shares sold by the underwriters to securities dealers may be sold at a discount from the initial public offering price not to exceed $__ per share. If all of the Shares are not sold at the initial offering price, the Representative may change the offering price and the other selling terms. The Representative has advised us that the underwriters do not intend to make sales to discretionary accounts. The underwriting agreement provides that the obligations of the underwriters to pay for and accept delivery of the Shares are subject to the passing upon certain legal matters by counsel and certain conditions such as confirmation of the accuracy of representations and warranties by us about our financial condition and operations and other matters. The obligation of the underwriters to purchase the Shares is conditioned upon our receiving approval to list the shares of common stock on Nasdaq.

 

If the underwriters sell more Shares than the total number set forth in the table above, we have granted to the Representative an option, exercisable for 45 days from the date of this prospectus, to purchase up to 300,000  additional Shares at the public offering price less the underwriting discount. The Representative may exercise this option solely for the purpose of covering over-allotments, if any, in connection with this offering. Any Shares issued or sold under the option will be issued and sold on the same terms and conditions as the other Shares that are the subject of this offering.

 

38 

 

 

In connection with the offering, the underwriters may purchase and sell Shares in the open market. Purchases and sales in the open market may include short sales, purchases to cover short positions, which may include purchases pursuant to the over-allotment option, and stabilizing purchases.

 

  Short sales involve secondary market sales by an underwriter of a greater number of Shares than they are required to purchase in the offering.
     
  “Covered” short sales are sales of Shares in an amount up to the number of Shares represented by the over-allotment option.
     
  “Naked” short sales are sales of Shares in an amount in excess of the number of Shares represented by the over-allotment option.
     
  Covering transactions involve purchases of Shares either pursuant to the over-allotment option or in the open market after the distribution has been completed in order to cover short positions.
     
  To close a naked short position, an underwriter must purchase Shares in the open market after the distribution has been completed.  A naked short position is more likely to be created if an underwriter is concerned that there may be downward pressure on the price of the Shares in the open market after pricing that could adversely affect investors who purchase in the offering.
     
  To close a covered short position, an underwriter must purchase Shares in the open market after the distribution has been completed or must exercise the over-allotment option. In determining the source of Shares to close the covered short position, the underwriters will consider, among other things, the price of Shares available for purchase in the open market as compared to the price at which they may purchase Shares through the over-allotment option.
     
  Stabilizing transactions involve bids to purchase Shares so long as the stabilizing bids do not exceed a specified maximum.

  

Purchases to cover short positions and stabilizing purchases, as well as other purchases by the underwriters for its own account, may have the effect of preventing or retarding a decline in the market price of the Shares. They may also cause the price of the Shares to be higher than the price that would otherwise exist in the open market in the absence of these transactions. The underwriters may conduct these transactions in the over-the-counter market or otherwise. If the underwriters commence any of these transactions, they may discontinue them at any time.

 

Discounts and Expenses

 

The following table shows the underwriting discounts payable to the underwriters by us in connection with this offering (assuming both the exercise and non-exercise of the over-allotment option that we have granted to the Representative):

The Representative’s warrant and the underlying shares may be deemed to be compensation by FINRA, and therefore will be subject to FINRA Rule 5110(g)(1). In accordance with FINRA Rule 5110(g)(1), neither the Representative’s warrant nor any of our Shares issued upon exercise of the Representative’s warrant may be sold, transferred, assigned, pledged or hypothecated, or be the subject of any hedging, short sale, derivative, put or call transaction that would result in the effective economic disposition of such securities by any person, for a period of 180 days immediately following the effective date of the registration statement pursuant to which the Representative’s warrant is being issued, subject to certain exceptions. The warrant to be received by the Representative and related persons in connection with this offering: (a) fully comply with lock-up restrictions pursuant to FINRA Rule 5110(g)(1); and (b) fully comply with transfer restrictions pursuant to FINRA Rule 5110(g)(2).

 

We have agreed to pay the Representative reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Representative in connection with this offering up to $133,000. The Representative out-of-pocket expenses include but are not limited to: (a) road show and travel expenses; (b) reasonable fees of Representative’s legal counsel; and (c) the cost of background check on our officers, directors and principal stockholders and due diligence expenses. As of the date of this prospectus, we have paid the Representative advances of $55,000 for its anticipated out-of-pocket costs. Such advance payments will be returned to us to the extent such out-of-pocket expenses are not actually incurred in accordance with FINRA Rule 5110(f)(2)(C).

 

In addition, pursuant to the underwriting agreement, we have provided the Representative the right of first refusal for two years from the date of commencement of sales of this public offering to act as financial advisor or to act as joint financial advisor on at least equal economic terms on any public or private financing (debt or equity), merger, business combination, recapitalization or sale of some or all of the equity or assets of our company. We may also engage the Representative to provide additional investment banking services to us from time to time.

 

We have agreed to indemnify the Representative and the other underwriters against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. If we are unable to provide this indemnification, we will contribute to payments that the Representative and the other underwriters may be required to make for these liabilities.

 

Determination of Offering Price

 

Prior to this offering, there has been no public market for the Shares. In determining the initial public offering price, we and the Representative have considered a number of factors, including:

 

  the information set forth in this prospectus and otherwise available to the Representative;

 

  our prospects and the history and prospects for the industry in which we compete;

 

  an assessment of our management;

 

  our prospects for future revenue and earnings;

 

  the general condition of the securities markets at the time of this offering;

 

  the recent market prices of, and demand for, publicly traded securities of generally comparable companies; and

 

  other factors deemed relevant by the Representative and us.

 

The estimated initial public offering price set forth on the cover page of this preliminary prospectus is subject to change as a result of market conditions and other factors. Neither we nor the Representative can assure investors that an active trading market will develop for our Shares, or that the Shares will trade in the public market at or above the initial public offering price.

 

Lock-Up Agreements

 

We and certain existing stockholders agree not to offer, issue, sell, contract to sell, encumber, grant any option for the sale of or otherwise dispose of any Shares or other securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for Shares for a period of up to 12 months after the effective date of the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part without the prior written consent of the Representative.

 

The Representative may in its sole discretion and at any time without notice release some or all of the Shares subject to lock-up agreements prior to the expiration of the lock-up period. When determining whether or not to release Shares from the lock-up agreements, the Representative will consider, among other factors, the security holder’s reasons for requesting the release, the number of Shares for which the release is being requested and market conditions at the time.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and
Stockholders of Alpha Investment Inc.

Opinion on the Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Alpha Investment Inc. (the Company) as of December 31, 2019 , and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit and cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2019, 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, 2019 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2019, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Explanatory Paragraph- 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 suffered recurring losses. As of and for the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company had a net loss of $1,697,245, had net cash used provided by operating activities of negative $2,041,111, accumulated deficit of $4,019,729 and working capital of $2,463,559. These factors raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

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 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 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 provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

We have served as the Company’s auditor since 2019.

Alpha Investment Inc.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

Years Ended December 31, 2020 and 2019

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

Corporate History

 

Alpha Investment Inc, formerly GoGo Baby, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated on February 22, 2013 under the laws of the State of Delaware to develop, create, manufacture and market, toys for small children which would be designed to attach to car seats and amuse and entertain children during a drive, without distracting the attention of the driver. The Company, however, encountered significant constraints in raising sufficient capital to fully implement its business plan.

 

TO better reflecting management’s shifted focus of the Company’s business to real estate and other commercial lending, on March 30, 2017, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State changing its name from “Gogo Baby, Inc.” to “Alpha Investment Inc.”.   The name change and a corresponding change in the Company’s OTC markets trading symbol from GGBY to ALPC received approval from FINRA and became effective as of April 19, 2017.

 

On January 31, 2019, the Company, through Jersey Walk Phase I, LLC, entered into a Sale of Membership Interest Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with CMT Developers LLC (“CMT”).  Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company acquired 100% of CMT’s membership interests, in exchange for the issuance to CMT of 3,000,000 shares of common stock.  During the due diligence on the refinancing of the property, the Company learned that certain of the representations and warranties of CMT in the Purchase Agreement with respect to the property were incorrect in various material respects. Based on the foregoing, effective June 7, 2019, the Company rescinded the Purchase Agreement in accordance with its terms and the 3,000,000 shares of common stock were returned to the Company. As of June 7, 2019, the Company deconsolidated CMT, recognizing a gain on deconsolidation of $316,774. The assets, liabilities and equity related to CMT, resulting in the gain on deconsolidation are summarized as follows:

 

Note Payable  $15,500,000 
Accrued Interest   232,500 
Deferred Income   576,774 
Common Stock Returned   29,222,500 
Real Estate   (44,800,000)
Prepaid Expenses   (105,000)
Construction Loan Advances   (310,000)
Gain on Deconsolidation  $316,774 

 

On March 11, 2019, the Company, through a newly formed LLC or Special Purpose Vehicle “SPV” called Alpha Mortgage Notes I, LLC executed an operating agreement with Alameda Partners LLC. Alameda Partners is a Utah Limited Liability Company which made a capital contribution of $1,000,000, which was paid to the Company, for 10% ownership of the SPV, and will be the managing member.  The capital shall be used to implement the strategy of acquiring commercial real estate performing notes and support other related growth initiatives and assets acquisitions for the Company of which is positioning for its up-listing to the NYSE. The Members of Alameda Partners LLC have decades of experiences in the commercial real estate industry as property developers, owners, and managers  and currently holds over $50-million in commercial real estate assets. They have been appointed as the Managing Members of the SPV, while ALPC controls and holds 90% ownership.  In exchange for its 90% interest in the SPV, the Company is required to contribute 4,015,667 shares of common stock for the purchase of performing notes for the SPV. The special purpose vehicle was organized to acquire the membership interests, develop, own, hold, sell, lease, transfer, exchange, re-lend, manage and operate the underlying assets and conduct activities related thereto the ownership of commercial real estate mortgage notes and REO’s. The initial $1,000,000 was recorded as additional paid in capital on the accompanying consolidated balance sheet. Alameda Partners is entitled to monthly distributions in cash and stock equal to $10,000. For the years ended December 31, 2020, the Company has recorded $220,000 of distributions as reductions to non-controlling interest, which has been accrued and included in Distributions Payable on the accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020. As of December 31, 2020, Alpha Mortgage Notes I, LLC has not completed any transactions.

 

On June 2, 2020, the Company acquired a 19% membership interest in Legacy Sand Group, LLC (“Legacy”), which owns real property and mining rights comprised of approximately 1,200 acres that encompass an asset of 110 million tons of Tier 1 Northern White Fracking Sand in Wisconsin. As consideration for the acquisition, the Company issued 3,382 shares of 2020 Convertible Preferred Stock, which is convertible into 3,804,750 shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company recorded its interest in Legacy at the estimated fair value of the preferred stock of $33,323,000.

 

 F-8

 

 

However, despite using its best efforts, pending Legacy Sand commencing operations and generating revenues, the Company was not been able to sufficiently establish the valuation of the Interest and the Series 2020 Preferred Shares to the satisfaction of its independent registered public accounting firm, in order to allow the Interest to be reflected as an asset on the Company’s balance sheet included in its periodic reports filed with the SEC under the Securities Act of 1934, as amended.

 

Accordingly, on July 29, 2021, the Company and Parsons entered into an Unwinding Agreement (the “Unwinding Agreement”), pursuant to which the joint venture was unwound. Under the Unwinding Agreement, Parsons returned the Series 2020 Preferred Shares to the Company for cancellation and the Company assigned the Interest in Legacy Sand back to Parsons and exchanged mutual releases.

 

NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN

 

Future issuances of the Company’s equity or debt securities will be required in order for the Company to continue to finance its operations and continue as a going concern. The Company’s present revenues are insufficient to meet operating expenses. The financial statement of the Company have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates, among other things, the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company used $547,182 and $2,041,111 in cash in operations, and incurred net losses of $1,069,216 and $1,697,245 during the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The Company has an accumulated deficit of $5,130,212 as of December 31, 2020 and requires capital for its contemplated operational and marketing activities to take place. The Company's ability to raise additional capital through the future issuances of common stock is unknown. Securing additional financing, the successful development of the Company's contemplated plan of operations, and its transition, ultimately, to the attainment of profitable operations are necessary for the Company to continue operations. The ability to successfully resolve these factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements of the Company do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of these aforementioned uncertainties.

 

NOTE 3 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, Alpha Mortgage Notes I, LLC, which is controlled by the Company through its 90% ownership interest, and Paris Med CP-LLC (“Paris Med”), variable interest entity for which the Company is deemed to be the primary beneficiary, (collectively, the “Company”). All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods presented. The Company is required to make judgments and estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to the useful life and recoverability of long-lived assets, deferred income tax asset valuations and loss contingences. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. Although, we believe our judgments and estimates are appropriate, actual future results may be different; if different assumptions or conditions were to prevail, the results could be materially different from our reported results.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash equivalents include short-term, highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less at the time of acquisition.

 

Restricted Cash Held in Escrow

 

As of December 31, 2019, the Company had approximately $2,509,000 of restricted cash held in escrow from the sale of commons stock to an investor that has the right to require the Company to repurchase common stock for $2,500,000 through September 2020. In February 2020, the holder exercised its option. . As of December 31, 2020, restricted cash held in escrow was nil. See Note 9

 

Loans Receivable, net and Allowance for Losses

 

The Company records its investments in loans receivable at the lower of cost or fair value, Costs are the gross loan receivables less unamortized costs of issuance and deferred origination fees. Origination fees collected at the time of investment are recorded against the loans receivable and amortized into net interest income over the lives of the related loans. Issuance costs incurred are capitalized along with the initial investment and amortized against net interest income over the lives of the related loans.

 

 F-9

 

 

When a loan receivable is placed on non-accrual status, the related interest receivable is charged to bad debt of the current period. If a non-accrual loan is returned to accrual status, the accrued interest existing at the date the residential loan is placed on non-accrual status and interest during the non-accrual period are recorded as interest income as of the date the loan no longer meets the non-accrual criteria.

 

The Company maintains an allowance for loan losses on its investments in real estate loans receivable for estimated credit impairment.  Management’s estimate of losses is based on a number of factors including the types and dollar amounts of loans in the portfolio, adverse situations that may affect the borrower’s ability to repay, prevailing economic conditions and the underlying collateral securing the loan.  Additions to the allowance are provided through a charge to earnings and are based on an assessment of certain factors, which may indicate estimated losses on the loans.  Actual losses on loans are recorded first as a reduction to the allowance for loan losses.  Generally, subsequent recoveries of amounts previously charged off are recognized as income.

 

Estimating allowances for loan losses requires significant judgment about the underlying collateral, including liquidation value, condition of the collateral, competency and cooperation of the related borrower and specific legal issues that affect loan collections or taking possession of the property on an individual loan receivable basis.  Management has established an allowance of $250,000 as of December 31, 2020, and determined that no allowance for loan losses was necessary as of December 31, 2019.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost. Equipment and fixtures are depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated asset lives, 5 years.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for its income taxes in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) No. 740, "Income Taxes". Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax balances. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted or substantially enacted tax rates expected to apply to the taxable income in the years in which those differences are expected to be recovered or settled. 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. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the date of enactment or substantive enactment.

 

Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes

 

The Company applies the provisions of ASC Topic 740-10-25, Income Taxes – Overall – Recognition (“ASC Topic 740-10-25”) with respect to the accounting for uncertainty of income tax positions. ASC Topic 740-10-25 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in a company’s consolidated financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. ASC Topic 740-10-25 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. As December 31, 2020, tax years since 2013 remain open for IRS audit. The Company has received no notice of audit from the Internal Revenue Service for any of the open tax years.

 

Revenue Recognition and Investment Income

 

Origination fees collected at the time of investment are recorded against the loans receivable and amortized into net interest income over the lives of the related loans. Issuance costs incurred are capitalized along with the initial investment and amortized against net interest income over the lives of the related loans. The Company records interest income in accordance with ASC subtopic 835-30 "Imputation of Interest", using the effective interest method. The following is a summary of the components of the Company’s net investment income for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019:

 

   2020   2019 
Interest Income  $45,306   $32,651 
Accretion of Loan Origination Fees   74,523    143,981 
Amortization of Loan Issuance Costs   (103,141)   (86,517)
Net Investment Income  $16,688   $90,115 

 

When a loan is placed on non-accrual status, the related interest receivable is charged to bad debt of the current period. If a non-accrual loan is returned to accrual status, the accrued interest existing at the date the residential loan is placed on non-accrual status and interest during the non-accrual period are recorded as interest income as of the date the loan no longer meets the non-accrual criteria.

 

 F-10

 

 

The Company suspends recognizing interest income when it is probable that the Company will be unable to collect all payments according to the contractual terms of the underlying agreements. Management considers all information available in assessing collectability. Collectability is measured on a receivable-by-receivable basis by either the present value of estimated future cash flows discounted at the effective rate, the observable market price for the receivable or the fair value of the collateral if the receivable is collateral dependent. Large groups of smaller balance homogeneous receivables, such as pre-settlement funding transactions, are collectively assessed for collectability. Receivables, including those arising from the sale of loan origination services, is charged off when in the Company's judgment, the receivable or portion of the receivable is considered uncollectible.

 

Payments received on past due receivables and finance receivables the Company has suspended recognizing interest income on are applied first to principal and then to accrued interest. Interest income on past due receivables and finance receivables, if received, is recorded using the cash basis method of accounting. Additionally, the Company generally does not resume recognition of interest income once it has been suspended.

 

Variable Interest Entity

 

The Company holds a 10% interest in Paris Med, of which the remaining 90% interest is held by the Company’s parent company.  Through December 31, 2020, the Company has provided 100% of the funding to Paris Med, which has provided a construction loan to a third party.  This loan receivable is the sole asset of Paris Med.  The Company determined that Paris Med was a variable interest entity based on various qualitative and quantitative factors including but not limited to: 1) financing of Paris Med’s sole asset was received by the Company, which is disproportionate to the Company’s ownership interest and 2) the Company and Omega, a related party, organized the entity for the purpose of facilitating the Company’s activities.  As of December 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company is considered the primary beneficiary because it has provided substantially all of its financial support and is the only party at risk.  As of December 31, 2020, Paris Med has total assets of $558,000, consisting solely of advances made pursuant to its third-party construction loan agreement, and had no liabilities. 100% of the funding for the sole asset was provided by the Company and such amounts are eliminated in consolidation.  See Note 3.  For the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, Paris Med had no activity other than accruing interest on outstanding principal.  The Company will evaluate its investments in Paris Med each reporting period to determine if it is still the primary beneficiary, and if no longer considered the primary beneficiary, deconsolidate Paris Med in the period in which circumstances change or events occur causing a change in its assessment.  The Company has not attributed any of its net loss or equity to non-controlling interest because Paris Med’s sole asset is amounts owed to the Company, which is eliminated in consolidation, and there was no material income earned or losses incurred to date by Paris Med.

 

Fair Value

 

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts payable and notes payable approximate their estimated fair market value based on the short-term maturity of this instrument. The carrying value of the Company’s loans receivable approximate fair value because their terms approximate market rates.

 

Net Loss Per Share

 

Basic loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the year. Dilutive loss per share reflects the potential dilution of securities that could share in the losses of the Company. 166,667 shares underlying convertible preferred stock and 350,000 shares of common stock underlying common stock warrants were excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share for year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, because their impact was anti-dilutive.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to significant concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents and loans receivable. The Company maintains its cash in bank and financial institution deposits that at times may exceed federally insured limits. Management has established an allowance of $250,000 as of December 31, 2020, and determined that no allowance for loan losses was necessary as of December 31, 2019.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Recent accounting pronouncements that the Company has adopted or that will be required to adopt in the future are summarized below.

 

In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-01, Financial Instruments - Overall (Subtopic 825- 10), Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. The provisions of the update require equity investments to be measured at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income. However, an entity may choose to measure equity investments that do not have readily determinable fair values at cost minus impairment. The update also simplifies the impairment assessment of equity investments without readily determinable fair values by requiring a qualitative assessment to identify impairment. It also eliminates

 

 F-11

 

 

the requirement to disclose the fair value of financial instruments measured at amortized cost for entities that are not public business entities, and eliminates the requirement for public business entities to disclose the methods and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value for financial instruments measured at amortized cost on the balance sheet. ASU No. 2016-01 requires public business entities to use the exit price notion when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purposes. It also requires an entity to present separately in other comprehensive income the portion of the total change in the fair value of a liability resulting from a change in the instrument-specific credit risk when the entity has elected to measure the liability at fair value in accordance with the fair value option for financial instruments. The update requires separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by category and form on the balance sheet or the accompanying notes to the financial statements. In addition, the update clarifies that an entity should evaluate the need for a valuation allowance on a deferred tax asset related to available-for-sale securities in combination with the entity’s other deferred tax assets. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), Conforming Amendments Related to Leases. This ASU amends the codification regarding leases in order to increase transparency and comparability. The ASU requires companies to recognize lease assets and liabilities on the statement of condition and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. A lessee would recognize a liability to make lease payments and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the leased asset for the lease term. The new lease guidance was effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. The amendments introduce an impairment model that is based on expected credit losses (“ECL”), rather than incurred losses, to estimate credit losses on certain types of financial instruments (ex. loans and held to maturity securities), including certain off-balance sheet financial instruments (ex. commitments to extend credit and standby letters of credit that are not unconditionally cancelable). The ECL should consider historical information, current information, and reasonable and supportable forecasts, including estimates of prepayments, over the contractual term. An entity must use judgment in determining the relevant information and estimation methods that are appropriate in its circumstances. Financial instruments with similar risk characteristics may be grouped together when estimating the ECL. The ASU also amends the current available for sale security impairment model for debt securities whereby credit losses relating to available for sale debt securities should be recorded through an allowance for credit losses. The amendments will be applied through a modified retrospective approach, resulting in a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. The Company is currently planning for the implementation of this accounting standard. It is too early to assess the impact this guidance will have on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. The amendments in this ASU clarify the proper classification for certain cash receipts and cash payments, including clarification on debt prepayment or debt extinguishment costs, settlement of zero-coupon debt instruments, contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims, and proceeds from the settlement of corporate-owned life insurance policies, including bank-owned life insurance policies, among others. The Company adoption of this amendment did not have a material impact on the Company’s Financial Statements.

 

The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect and that may impact its financial statements and does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

 

NOTE 4 – LOANS RECEIVABLE, NET

 

Loans Receivable - Related Parties

 

Loan Agreement with Partners South Holdings LLC (Revolving Line of Credit)

 

On August 28, 2017, the Company entered into a loan agreement with Partners South Holdings LLC (“Borrower”), which is owned by Timothy R. Fussell, former President, Chairman of the Board and a director of the Company, for a revolving line of credit in the maximum principal sum of $3,600,000 for the purpose of financing real property construction costs and working capital needs.

NOTE 5 - PROVISION FOR INCOME TAXES

 

Realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon sufficient future taxable income during the period that deductible temporary differences and carry-forwards are expected to be available to reduce taxable income. As the achievement of required future taxable income is uncertain, the Company recorded a valuation allowance. As of December 31, 2020 the Company had a net operating loss carry-forward of approximately $2,753,651. Net operating loss carry-forwards incurred before 2018 generally expire twenty years from the date the loss was incurred, beginning in 2023, and losses incurred after 2018 are subject to annual limitations.

 

The Company is subject to United States federal and state income taxes at an approximate blended state and federal rate of 29%. The reconciliation of the provision for income taxes at the United States federal statutory rate compared to the Company’s income tax expense as reported is as follows:

 

  

December 31,

2020

  

December 31,

2019

 
Statutory rates (federal and state)   29%   29%
Permanent differences   0%   (11)%
Valuation allowance change and change in tax rate   (29)%   (18)%
    0%   0%

 

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes. Deferred income taxes arise from temporary differences in the recognition of income and expenses for financial reporting and tax purposes. The significant components of deferred income tax assets and liabilities at December 31, 2020 and 2019 are as follows:

 

  

December 31,

2020

  

December 31,

2019

 
Net operating loss carryforward  $798,559   $482,081 
Valuation allowance   (798,559)   (482,081)
Net Deferred income tax asset  $—     $—   

 

The Company has recognized a valuation allowance for the deferred income tax asset since the Company cannot be assured that it is more likely than not that such benefit will be utilized in future years. The valuation allowance is reviewed annually. The Company’s valuation allowance increased by $316,478 and $305,064 during the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. When circumstances change and which cause a change in management’s judgment about the realizability of deferred income tax assets, the impact of the change on the valuation allowance is generally reflected in current income.

 

 F-14

 

 

Current law limits the amount of loss available to be offset against future taxable income when a substantial change in ownership occurs. Therefore, the amount available to offset future taxable income may be limited.

Temporary Equity

 

On September 20, 2017, 166,667 shares of common stock were issued at a value of $15.00 per share to one company in exchange for cash of $2,500,000. Pursuant to the subscription agreement, and amendments, the investor has the right to require the Company to repurchase the shares for $2.5 million at any time through September 2020, which was initially December 2017. Accordingly, the amounts received are presented as a temporary equity as of December 31, 2019 and 2018. In December 2017, the Company negotiated and amended its agreement with the investor to extend this right through May 15, 2018. As part of this extension, the investor was granted warrants to purchase 170,000 shares of common stock for an exercise price of $15.00 per share over a five-year term. Because the shares are classified as a temporary equity, and the investors rights to require repurchase of the shares initially expired in 2017 the Company recorded the fair value of these warrants were recorded as a discount against the proceeds to be amortized as interest expense through February 2018, the initial extension date. In March 2018, the Company entered into a third amendment to the subscription agreement, extending the option period to May 15, 2018. The option was further extended in May and June 2018.  As consideration for the extensions, the Company’s parent company, Omega Commercial Finance Corporation, agreed to issue to the investor, 65,000 shares of its Series Z preferred stock, and the Company agreed to reimburse the investor for $21,894 of legal fees incurred related to the extension.  The Company estimated the fair value of the Series Z preferred stock based on recent sales for cash, and recorded additional discounts of $184,394, including the accrued legal fees, against the common stock to be amortized into interest expense through the extended expiration of the option in May 2018.  In October 2018, the option period was further extended to November 19, 2018.   As consideration for the extension, the Company agreed to allow the investor to direct the investment of the restricted cash into one more investment types, such stock, money market accounts or similar investments.  The investor was also granted the right to withdrawal any restricted cash in excess of $2.5 million.  In November 2018, the option was further extended to January 12, 2019.

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

September 30, 2021

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

Alpha Investment Inc, formerly GoGo Baby, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated on February 22, 2013 under the laws of the State of Delaware to develop, create, manufacture and market, toys for small children which would be designed to attach to car seats and amuse and entertain children during a drive, without distracting the attention of the driver. The Company, however, encountered significant constraints in raising sufficient capital to fully implement its business plan.

 

To better reflecting management’s shifted focus of the Company’s business to real estate and other commercial lending, on March 30, 2017, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State changing its name from “Gogo Baby, Inc.” to “Alpha Investment Inc.”. The name change and a corresponding change in the Company’s OTC markets trading symbol from GGBY to ALPC received approval from FINRA and became effective as of April 19, 2017.

 

On March 11, 2019, the Company, through a newly formed LLC or Special Purpose Vehicle “SPV” called Alpha Mortgage Notes I, LLC executed an operating agreement with Alameda Partners LLC. Alameda Partners is a Utah Limited Liability Company which made a capital contribution of $1,000,000, which was paid to the Company, for 10% ownership of the SPV, and will be the managing member. The capital shall be used to implement the strategy of acquiring commercial real estate performing notes and support other related growth initiatives and assets acquisitions for the Company of which is positioning for its up-listing to the NYSE. The Members of Alameda Partners LLC have decades of experiences in the commercial real estate industry as property developers, owners, and managers and currently holds over $50-million in commercial real estate assets. They have been appointed as the Managing Members of the SPV, while ALPC controls and holds 90% ownership. In exchange for its 90% interest in the SPV, the Company is required to contribute 4,015,667 shares of common stock for the purchase of performing notes for the SPV. The special purpose vehicle was organized to acquire the membership interests, develop, own, hold, sell, lease, transfer, exchange, re-lend, manage and operate the underlying assets and conduct activities related thereto the ownership of commercial real estate mortgage notes and REO’s. The initial $1,000,000 was recorded as additional paid in capital on the accompanying consolidated balance sheet. Alameda Partners is entitled to monthly distributions in cash and stock equal to $10,000. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company has recorded $90,000 of distributions as reductions to non-controlling interest, which has been accrued and included in Distributions Payable on the accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2021. As of September 30, 2021, Alpha Mortgage Notes I, LLC has not completed any transactions.

 

On June 2, 2020, the Company acquired a 19% membership interest in Legacy Sand Group, LLC (“Legacy”), which owns real property and mining rights comprised of approximately 1,200 acres that encompass an asset of 110 million tons of Tier 1 Northern White Fracking Sand in Wisconsin. As consideration for the acquisition, the Company issued 3,382 shares of 2020 Convertible Preferred Stock, which is convertible into 3,804,750 shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company recorded its interest in Legacy at the estimated fair value of the preferred stock of $33,323,000.

 

However, despite using its best efforts, pending Legacy Sand commencing operations and generating revenues, the Company was not been able to sufficiently establish the valuation of the Interest and the Series 2020 Preferred Shares to the satisfaction of its independent registered public accounting firm, in order to allow the Interest to be reflected as an asset on the Company’s balance sheet included in its periodic reports filed with the SEC under the Securities Act of 1934, as amended.

 

Accordingly, on July 29, 2021, the Company and Parsons entered into an Unwinding Agreement (the “Unwinding Agreement”), pursuant to which the joint venture was unwound. Under the Unwinding Agreement, Parsons returned the Series 2020 Preferred Shares to the Company for cancellation and the Company assigned the Interest in Legacy Sand back to Parsons and exchanged mutual releases.

 

NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN

 

Future issuances of the Company’s equity or debt securities will be required in order for the Company to continue to finance its operations and continue as a going concern. The Company’s present revenues are insufficient to meet operating expenses. The financial statements of the Company have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates, among other things, the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has an accumulated deficit of $5,454,879 as of September 30, 2021. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company used $196,090 of cash in operations and incurred a net loss of $259,537. The Company requires capital for its contemplated operational and marketing activities to take place. The Company's ability to raise additional capital through the future issuances of common stock is unknown. Securing additional financing, the successful development of the Company's contemplated plan of

 

 F-22

 

 

operations, and its transition, ultimately, to the attainment of profitable operations are necessary for the Company to continue operations. The ability to successfully resolve these factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements of the Company do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of these aforementioned uncertainties.

 

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

In the opinion of the Company, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with instructions for Form 10-Q, include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring accruals) which we considered as necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the periods presented. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted. It is suggested that these condensed financial statements be read in conjunction with the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for future periods or the full year.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, Alpha Mortgage Notes I, LLC, which is controlled by the Company through its 90% ownership interest, and Paris Med CP-LLC (“Paris Med”), variable interest entity for which the Company is deemed to be the primary beneficiary, (collectively, the “Company”). All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods presented. The Company is required to make judgments and estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to the useful life and recoverability of long-lived assets, deferred income tax asset valuations and loss contingences. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. Although, we believe our judgments and estimates are appropriate, actual future results may be different; if different assumptions or conditions were to prevail, the results could be materially different from our reported results.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash equivalents include short-term, highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less at the time of acquisition. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had no cash equivalents.

 

Loans Receivable, net and Allowance for Losses

 

The Company records its investments in loans receivable at the lower of cost or fair value. Costs are the gross loan receivables less unamortized costs of issuance and deferred origination fees. Origination fees collected at the time of investment are recorded against the loans receivable and amortized into net interest income over the lives of the related loans. Issuance costs incurred are capitalized along with the initial investment and amortized against net interest income over the lives of the related loans.

 

When a loan receivable is placed on non-accrual status, the related interest receivable is charged to bad debt of the current period. If a non-accrual loan is returned to accrual status, the accrued interest existing at the date the residential loan is placed on non-accrual status and interest during the non-accrual period are recorded as interest income as of the date the loan no longer meets the non-accrual criteria.

 

The Company maintains an allowance for loan losses on its investments in real estate loans receivable for estimated credit impairment.  Management’s estimate of losses is based on a number of factors including the types and dollar amounts of loans in the portfolio, adverse situations that may affect the borrower’s ability to repay, prevailing economic conditions and the underlying collateral securing the loan.  Additions to the allowance are provided through a charge to earnings and are based on an assessment of certain factors, which may indicate estimated losses on the loans.  Actual losses on loans are recorded first as a reduction to the allowance for loan losses.  Generally, subsequent recoveries of amounts previously charged off are recognized as income.

 

 F-23

 

 

Estimating allowances for loan losses requires significant judgment about the underlying collateral, including liquidation value, condition of the collateral, competency and cooperation of the related borrower and specific legal issues that affect loan collections or taking possession of the property on an individual loan receivable basis.  Management has established an allowance of $250,000 as of September 30, 2021, and December 31, 2020.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost. Equipment and fixtures will be depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated asset lives, 5 years.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for its income taxes in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) No. 740, "Income Taxes". Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax balances. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted or substantially enacted tax rates expected to apply to the taxable income in the years in which those differences are expected to be recovered or settled. 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. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the date of enactment or substantive enactment.

 

Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes

 

The Company applies the provisions of ASC Topic 740-10-25, Income Taxes – Overall – Recognition (“ASC Topic 740-10-25”) with respect to the accounting for uncertainty of income tax positions. ASC Topic 740-10-25 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in a company’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. ASC Topic 740-10-25 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. As of September 30, 2021, tax years since 2013 remain open for IRS audit. The Company has received no notice of audit from the Internal Revenue Service for any of the open tax years.

 

Revenue Recognition and Investment Income

 

Origination fees collected at the time of investment are recorded against the loans receivable and amortized into net interest income over the lives of the related loans. Issuance costs incurred are capitalized along with the initial investment and amortized against net interest income over the lives of the related loans. The Company records interest income in accordance with ASC subtopic 835-30 "Imputation of Interest", using the effective interest method. The following is a summary of the components of the Company’s net investment income for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020:

 

   2021   2020 
Interest Income  $50,139   $33,913 
Accretion of Loan Origination Fees   33,441    71,759 
Amortization of Loan Issuance Costs   (62,001)   (77,357)
Net Investment Income  $21,579   $28,315 

 

When a loan is placed on non-accrual status, the related interest receivable is charged to bad debt of the current period. If a non-accrual loan is returned to accrual status, the accrued interest existing at the date the residential loan is placed on non-accrual status and interest during the non-accrual period are recorded as interest income as of the date the loan no longer meets the non-accrual criteria.

 

The Company suspends recognizing interest income when it is probable that the Company will be unable to collect all payments according to the contractual terms of the underlying agreements. Management considers all information available in assessing collectability. Collectability is measured on a receivable-by-receivable basis by either the present value of estimated future cash flows discounted at the effective rate, the observable market price for the receivable or the fair value of the collateral if the receivable is collateral dependent. Large groups of smaller balance homogeneous receivables, such as pre-settlement funding transactions, are collectively assessed for collectability. Receivables, including those arising from the sale of loan origination services, is charged off when in the Company's judgment, the receivable or portion of the receivable is considered uncollectible.

 

 F-24

 

 

Payments received on past due receivables and finance receivables the Company has suspended recognizing interest income on are applied first to principal and then to accrued interest. Interest income on past due receivables and finance receivables, if received, is recorded using the cash basis method of accounting. Additionally, the Company generally does not resume recognition of interest income once it has been suspended.

 

Variable Interest Entity

 

The Company holds a 10% interest in Paris Med, of which the remaining 90% interest is held by Omega.  Through September 30, 2021, the Company has provided 100% of the funding to Paris Med, which has provided a construction loan to a third party.  This loan receivable is the sole asset of Paris Med.  The Company determined that Paris Med was a variable interest entity based on various qualitative and quantitative factors including but not limited to: 1) financing of Paris Med’s sole asset was received by the Company, which is disproportionate to the Company’s ownership interest and 2) the Company and Omega, a related party, organized the entity for the purpose of facilitating the Company’s activities.  As of September 30, 2021, the Company is considered the primary beneficiary because it has provided substantially all of its financial support and is the only party at risk.  As of September 30, 2021, Paris Med has total assets of $558,000, consisting solely of advances made pursuant to its third party construction loan agreement, and had no liabilities.  See Note 3.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, Paris Med had no activity other than accruing interest on outstanding principal.  The Company will evaluate its investments in Paris Med each reporting period to determine if it is still the primary beneficiary, and if no longer considered the primary beneficiary, deconsolidate Paris Med in the period in which circumstances change or events occur causing a change in its assessment.  The Company has attributed 90% of interest earned on Paris Med’s sole asset to non-controlling interests.

 

Fair Value

 

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts payable and notes payable approximate their estimated fair market value based on the short-term maturity of this instrument. The carrying value of the Company’s loans receivable approximate fair value because their terms approximate market rates.

 

Net Loss Per Share

 

Basic loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the year. Dilutive loss per share reflects the potential dilution of securities that could share in the losses of the Company. 166,667 shares underlying convertible preferred stock and 350,000 shares of common stock underlying common stock warrants were excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, because their impact was anti-dilutive. 350,000 shares of common stock underlying common stock warrants were excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, because their impact was anti-dilutive.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to significant concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents and loans receivable. The Company maintains its cash in bank and financial institution deposits that at times may exceed federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts through September 30, 2021.

 

Recently Issued and Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

Recent accounting pronouncements that the Company has adopted or that will be required to adopt in the future are summarized below.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. The amendments introduce an impairment model that is based on expected credit losses (“ECL”), rather than incurred losses, to estimate credit losses on certain types of financial instruments (ex. loans and held to maturity securities), including certain off-balance sheet financial instruments (ex. commitments to extend credit and standby letters of credit that are not unconditionally cancellable). The ECL should consider historical information, current information, and reasonable and supportable forecasts, including estimates of prepayments, over the contractual term. An entity must use judgment in determining the relevant information and estimation methods that are appropriate in its circumstances. Financial instruments with similar risk characteristics may be grouped together when estimating the ECL. The ASU also amends the current available for sale security impairment model for debt securities whereby credit losses relating to available for sale debt securities should be recorded through an allowance for credit losses. The ASU was effective for the Company on January 1, 2021. The adoption of ASU 2016-13 did not have a material impact to the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.

Loans Receivable - Related Parties

 

Loan Agreement with Partners South Holdings LLC (Revolving Line of Credit)

 

On August 28, 2017 the Company entered into a loan agreement with Partners South Holdings LLC (“Borrower”), which is owned by Timothy R. Fussell, President, Chairman of the Board and a director of the Company, for a revolving line of credit in the maximum principal sum of $3,600,000 for the purpose of financing real property construction costs and working capital needs. On January 28, 2020, this loan was amended to reduce the loan amount to $657,500.

NOTE 7 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

Incentive Plan

 

The Company’s Incentive Plan provides for equity incentives to be granted to its employees, executive officers or directors or to key advisers or consultants. Equity incentives may be in the form of stock options with an exercise price not less than the fair market value of the underlying Shares as determined pursuant to the Incentive Plan, restricted stock awards, other stock-based awards, or any combination of the foregoing. The Incentive Plan is administered by the board of directors. 5,000,000 Shares are reserved for issuance pursuant to the exercise of awards under the Incentive Plan.  The number of shares so reserved automatically adjusts upward on January 1 of each year, so that the number of shares covered by the Incentive Plan is equal to 15% of our issued and outstanding common stock. As of September 30, 2021, there are 1,375,000 shares available for issuance under the plan and no options outstanding. There was no adjustment to the number of shares covered by the Incentive Plan during the nine months ended June 30, 2021.

 

Temporary Equity

 

On November 27, 2017, 16,667 shares of Series 2018 Convertible Preferred stock were issued at a value of $15.00 per share to one entity in exchange for cash of $250,000.  The shares have 350,000 warrants attached, each warrant entitling the holder to one additional share with an exercise date of up to 5 years from the issuance date of the shares. The preferred stock is mandatorily redeemable 10 years after issuance.  The Company allocated $236,897 the proceeds from the sale of the preferred stock to the warrants, which was recorded as a discount against the preferred stock and is to be amortized as a deemed dividend through the 10-year redemption date.  The balance of the preferred stock reflected in temporary equity as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, was $404,488 and $386,722, net of unamortized discounts of $146,091 and $163,857.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company issued 20,000 shares of Series 2018 Convertible Preferred Stock, to its chief executive officer as compensation for services provided. These shares are carried at $300,000 as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

 

Preferred Stock

 

In November 2017, the Company’s board of directors designated 100,000 authorized shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series A”). Each share of Series A has a par value of $15.00 and has no voting or dividend rights. Upon liquidation, dissolution or wining up, the holders of Series A shares are entitled to be paid out of the assets of the Company, if any, rateably with the common stockholders. Each share of Series A is convertible within one year of issuance into two shares of common stock of the Company. At any time after 180 days of issuance, the Company has the right, but not the obligation, to redeem all, but not less than all, of the outstanding Series A shares by paying cash, common stock, or a combination of an amount equal to the par value of the Series A shares. On the one-year anniversary of issuance, the Company has an obligation to redeem the Series A shares for an amount equal to the par value of the Series A shares. There are 1,167 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock outstanding as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

Each share of Series AA Preferred Stock is convertible into and has rights and preferences on equal to ten shares of common stock. The Company determined that the fair value of the Series AA Preferred Stock exceeded the fair value of the common stock surrendered and therefore recorded the exchange as a capital contribution with no recognition of any gain or income.

ITEM 17.  UNDERTAKINGS

 

The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

 

1.       To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement;

 

(a)       to include any prospectus required by Section 10(a) (3) of the Securities Act of 1933;

 

(b)       to reflect in the prospectus any facts or events which, individually or together, represent a fundamental change in the information in the registration statement; and notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospects filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in the volume and price represent no more than a 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement.; and

 

(c)       to include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in this registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement.

 

2.       That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered herein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

3.       To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered hereby which remain unsold at the termination of the Offering.

 

4.       That, for the purpose of determining liability of the registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities:, the undersigned registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

 

(a)       Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned registrant relating to the Offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424 (§230.424 of this chapter);

 

(b)       Any free writing prospectus relating to the Offering prepared by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant or used or referred to by the undersigned registrant;

 

(c)       The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the Offering containing material information about the undersigned registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant; and

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to our directors, officers and controlling persons pursuant to the provisions above, or otherwise, we been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933, and is, therefore, unenforceable.  In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities, other than the payment by us of expenses incurred or paid by one of our directors, officers, or controlling persons in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding, is asserted by one of our directors, officers, or controlling persons in connection with the securities being registered, we will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933, and we will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

 

II-3
