ICOx Innovations Inc.

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements

As of March 31, 2019 and for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018

 

1. NATURE AND CONTINUANCE OF OPERATIONS

 

ICOx Innovations Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on July 20, 2010, with an authorized capital of 75,000,000 common shares, having a par value of $0.001 per share. During the period ended December 31, 2010, the Company commenced operations by issuing shares and developing its publishing service business, focused on representing authors to publishers.

 

On February 14, 2018, the Company changed its name from “AppCoin Innovations Inc.” to “ICOx Innovations Inc.”

 

On August 17, 2018, a subsidiary of the Company changed its name from “AppCoin Innovations (USA) Inc.” to “ICOx USA, Inc.”

 

On November 19, 2018, we incorporated a new Delaware subsidiary, GN Innovations, Inc., to provide blockchain technology opportunities to the sports and entertainment industry by working with large and well-established brands.

 

On November 28, 2018, we incorporated a new Delaware subsidiary, Cathio, Inc, to provide blockchain technology opportunities to the Catholic community.

 

Effective December 5, 2018, we effected a name change for our subsidiary from “GN Innovations, Inc.” to “GN1, Inc.”.

 

Effective February 6, 2019, we effected a name change for our subsidiary from “GN1, Inc.” to “sBetOne, Inc.”.

 

The Company’s business model is to provide a turnkey set of services for companies to develop and integrate blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies into their business operations. The Company will enable its customers to focus on their core competencies while providing the necessary resources and expertise to execute a strategy that will enable companies to integrate new blockchain plus cryptocurrency technologies into their business operations. The Company will be compensated on a fee-for-services model. The Company may also accept tokens or coins in payment for its services, to the extent permitted under applicable law.

 

The Company’s services will include strategic planning, project planning, structure development and administration, business plan modeling, technology development support, whitepaper preparation, due diligence reporting, governance planning and management.

 

Going Concern

 

These unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes the Company will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. The Company has incurred losses since inception resulting in an accumulated deficit of $5,849,372 as of March 31, 2019 and further losses are anticipated in the pursuit of the Company’s new service business opportunity, raising substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company generating profitable operations in the future and/or obtaining the necessary financing to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. Management intends to finance operating costs over the next twelve months with existing cash on hand, loans from directors and/or the private placement of common stock.

 

The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“ GAAP ”) in the United States of America.

 

Basis of Consolidation

 

The unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.

 

Unaudited Interim Financial Information

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP for interim financial information, and with the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. The unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) which are, in the opinion of management, necessary to a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented. Unaudited interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full fiscal year. These unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2018 and notes thereto contained in the information as part of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, which was filed with the SEC on March 26, 2019.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the interim consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates and these differences could be material.

 

Earnings per Share

 

The Company computes earnings (loss) per share in accordance with ASC 105, “Earnings per Share” which requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share on the face of the statement of operations. Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of outstanding common shares during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period. At March 31, 2019, common shares from the conversion of debt (11,331,217 shares) (Note 4) and exercise of stock options (1,930,548 shares) (Note 10) have been excluded as their effect is anti-dilutive. At March 31, 2018, common shares from the conversion of debt (11,069,843 shares) and exercise of stock options (766,664 shares) have been excluded as their effect is anti-dilutive.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue is recognized in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 606, Revenue Recognition.

 

The Company primarily generates revenues from professional services consulting agreements. These arrangements are generally entered into on a contingent fee basis. There is no prepayment or retainer required prior to performing services and the entire fees is earned on a contingent basis. The Company also provides monthly post-business launch support services. The recurring monthly post-business launch support services are recognized as revenue each month that the subscription is maintained.

 

  9  
     

 

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT’D)

 

The Company generally enters into arrangements for which revenues are contingent upon achieving a pre-determined deliverable or future outcome. Any contingent revenue for these arrangements is not recognized until the contingency is resolved and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Differences between the timing of billings and the recognition of revenue are recognized as either unbilled revenue (a component of accounts receivable) or deferred revenue on the consolidated balance sheet. Revenues recognized for services performed but not yet billed to clients are recorded as unbilled revenue.

 

Reimbursable expenses, including those relating to travel, other out-of-pocket expenses and any third-party costs, are included as a component of revenues. Typically, an equivalent amount of reimbursable expenses are included in total direct client service costs. Taxes collected from customers and remitted to governmental authorities are presented in the statement of operations on a net basis.

 

Deferred Revenue

 

The Company’s policy is to defer revenue that relate to services that have not yet been performed. Revenue is recognized when the service has been performed.

 

Service Costs

 

The Company’s policy is to defer direct service costs that relate to the earning of contingent fee revenue. These deferred costs are expensed when the contingent fee revenue is recognized or when the earning the contingent fee revenue is in doubt.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

Leases (ASU 2016-02)

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases” which was issued to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. The amendments in ASU 2016-02 are effective for our quarter ended March 31, 2019. The amendments in ASU 2016-02 are effective for our quarter ended March 31, 2019.

 

Stock Compensation (ASU 2018-07)

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, “Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting”, which expands the scope of Topic 718 to include all share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees. ASU 2018-07 specifies that Topic 718 applies to all share-based payment transactions in which the grantor acquires goods and services to be used or consumed in its own operations by issuing share-based payment awards. ASU 2018-07 also clarifies that Topic 718 does not apply to share-based payments used to effectively provide (1) financing to the issuer or (2) awards granted in conjunction with selling goods or services to customers as part of a contract accounted for under ASC 606. The amendments in ASU 2018-07 are effective for our quarter ended March 31, 2019.

  (ii) the price per share equal to the quotient of $27,000,000 divided by the aggregate number of shares outstanding shares of sBetOne’s common stock immediately prior to the conversion election date.

   

Notes 1 through 5 were initially entered into with an interest rate of 18% per annum. On November 5, 2018, amendment agreements were signed amending the interest rate to 8% per annum effective December 1, 2018. The amendments also state that the interest is payable only in cash on a quarterly basis commencing December 1, 2018 on March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31 of each year until the Maturity Date or earlier on the date that all amounts owing under this Note are prepaid by the Company.

On December 29, 2017, the Company signed a master service agreement with Ryde, a company in which there is a common director. The agreement was amended on March 15, 2018, pursuant to which the Company changed the scope of services to provide Ryde with the services in connection with Ryde’s development of an image rights management and protection platform (the “Platform”) using blockchain technology, including (i) the business development and technical services, (ii) the business launch services and (iii) the post-business launch support services. The business services agreement with Ryde provides that the fees for the services provided in connection with the development and launch of the Platform (the business development and technical services and business launch services) were deemed earned on the date of execution of the business services agreement. The Company has waived Ryde’s requirement to pay the $250,000 fixed fee in connection with the business development and technical services as a concession. The Company has recognized the business development and technical service fee of $500,000 during the year end December 31, 2017, paid in January by Ryde upon the completion of its first round of pre-ICO fundraising. Also, as a condition for entering into the loan agreement (Note 6), Ryde entered into the amendment no. 2, dated as of July 9, 2018, to the business service agreement dated December 29, 2017 as amended as of March 15, 2018, with our company. Pursuant to the amendment no. 2, the Company and Ryde agreed that each party will be responsible for its respective expenses and agreed not to charge any out of pocket expenses to the other party unless expressly approved by the other party in advance in writing.

 

On October 29, 2018, Ryde entered into amendment no. 3. Under the amendment no. 3, the Company agreed to provide to Ryde the services from October 1, 2018 to December 31, 2019 (the “2018-19 Services”) consisting of corporate development and governance, business development and technical services, business awareness services, financial and administrative services, and media management services. In addition, the Company agreed to provide to Ryde the monthly services from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020 (the “2020 Monthly Services”) consisting of board and corporate strategy management and board and corporate governance management.

 

In consideration for the 2018-19 Services, Ryde agreed to pay a fixed fee of $1,100,000, which is deemed earned as of October 1, 2018, under the agreement, but not for financial reporting purposes and is not due and payable until Ryde closes on the sale of Simple Agreements for Future Tokens (“SAFTs”), equity, or token financings, joint venture financings, or any of its affiliates, in a minimum aggregate amount of $12,000,000, including closings occurring prior to October 1, 2018. In consideration for the 2020 Monthly Services fees, Ryde agreed to pay a monthly fee of $35,000 at the beginning of each month commencing January 1, 2020. All fees and other amounts paid to the Company with respect to the Company’s services provided prior to the amendment no. 3 have been earned in connection with the prior services and will not be credited against any of the above fees or other amounts due under the amendment no. 3.

The Company will also receive 20 million tokens based upon 100 million tokens issued, which number will be increased on a pro rata basis, if at any time, Ryde issues more than 100 million tokens (the “Token Fee”). The Token Fee has been previously earned and will be issued in connection with the first release of any tokens to any party.

 

However, if the business services agreement is terminated before December 31, 2019, (a) the fee for the 2018-19 Services will be immediately due in full (but only if the foregoing $12,000,000 financing is closed either before or after the termination date), (b) any additional fees and milestone fees earned will be immediately paid in full (if the condition precedent/milestones are achieved), (c) the Token Fee will be immediately transferred to the Company, and (d) any future adjustment in the number of tokens issued by Ryde, to over 100,000,000, will result in the immediately issuance to our company of 20% of such additional tokens.

 

The amendment no. 3 provides that the business services agreement will continue until December 31, 2020 unless earlier terminated by either party, provided, however, the term of the 2020 Monthly Services will automatically renew for successive one-year periods after December 31, 2020, which renewal term can be terminated by either party with 30 days advanced written notice. The amendment no. 3 also provides that the Company may terminate the business services agreement upon the provision of 30 days written notice to Ryde. Ryde may terminate the business services agreement after December 31, 2019, upon the provision of 30 days written notice to the Company. If the Company or Ryde provides such notice, the Company or Ryde, as applicable, may immediately terminate the business services agreement and the Company will be entitled to no further compensation except for any fees earned prior to the date of the termination and other fees discussed above, which are due regardless of such early termination.

 

The Company has agreed that Ryde will not be responsible for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Company in connection with the performance of the services. In addition, the Company has agreed to pay, and otherwise be financially responsible for (including through the reimbursement of disbursements made by Ryde and its affiliates), (i) all legal costs and expenses incurred by Ryde, the Company and any of their affiliates in connection with the Ryde Offering; (ii) all business and travel expenses incurred by Ryde, the Company and any of their affiliates in connection the Ryde Offering; and (iii) all fees and expenses incurred by Ryde in connection with its conversion of cryptocurrencies into US dollars in connection with the Ryde Offering, including bank, exchange and other similar fees and expenses. Ryde will have the right to deduct any such amounts from the fees otherwise payable by it to the Company and apply such deducted amounts to the payments to the Company.

 

The Company’s chairman and one of its directors, Cameron Chell, is a director, officer, and an indirect shareholder of Business Instincts Group Inc. which owns 10% of the common stock of Ryde and he is also a director, officer, and indirect shareholder of Blockchain Merchant Group, Inc. which owns 2.5% of the common stock of Ryde and the Company owns 7.5% of the common stock of Ryde.

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended March 31, 2019 Compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2018

 

Revenue

 

We had no revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018.

 

Operating Expenses

 

We incurred general and administrative expenses of $1,000,347 and $514,117 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, representing an increase of $486,230 between the two periods. These expenses consisted primarily of consulting fees, pre-licensing fees, professional fees, and other general and administrative costs. The increase in consulting fees between the two periods from $297,188 in 2018 to $419,863 in 2019 was due to the increase in compensation for our president, chief operating officer, and Board of Directors. Pre-licensing fees increased from $0 in 2018 to $250,000 in 2019. Once the definitive licensing agreement is signed with the license holder the Company will be able to adjust this pre-licensing fees from future minimum royalty fees that would be payable to the license holder. Professional fees decreased from $108,198 in 2018 to $68,548 in 2019 due to lower legal services as 2018 saw the Company spending on the evaluation of potential business opportunities and regulatory compliance. The increase in other general and administrative costs increased from $213,282 in 2018 to $366,288 in 2019 due to increased travel costs, advertising and marketing costs, compliance fees, and stock-based compensation. Service costs decreased from $387,080 in 2018 to $35,122 in 2019 as many of the costs for the client being recognized are now being charged to them as per the amended agreement.

 

Consulting fees of $419,863 in the first quarter of 2019 relate in part to $105,000 paid to Business Instincts Group Inc., $100,000 paid for services related to getting listed on the stock exchange, $67,500 paid to our Board of Directors, $48,000 paid to our president, for management services, $36,000 paid to our chief operating officer, for management services, $24,000 paid for accounting services, $18,000 paid for the management of Cathio, Inc., a subsidiary of the Company, $15,000 paid to our chief financial officer, for management services, $3,521 in stock-based compensation, and other smaller costs.

 

The pre-licensing fees stem from an agreement between the Company and a potential client.

 

Service fees of $35,122 in 2019 relate to $21,266 for public relation and marketing services, $7,884 for legal services, and $5,972 for business travel.

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

Other income includes $18,493 of interest earned on a loan receivable from a related party compared to $198 for the same period last year. Other expenses include interest expense on convertible notes payable of $14,534 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to $16,519 for the same period last year.

 

Net Loss from Operations

 

We incurred net losses from operations of $1,140,469 and $1,006,197 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, representing an increase of $134,272, primarily attributable to the factors discussed above under the heading “Operating Expenses”.

Current Assets

 

Current assets were $3,192,666 as at March 31, 2019 and $3,170,861 as at December 31, 2018. The increase in current assets as at March 31, 2019 was due to an increase in deferred service costs and the right-of-use asset partially offset by the increase in cash spent on operating expenses.

Current liabilities as at March 31, 2019 were attributable to $645,709 in accounts payable and accrued expenses, $8,938 in current portion of accrued interest on convertible notes payable, deferred revenue of $250,000, and $175,911 for the lease liability compared to $286,457 in accounts payable and accrued expenses as at December 31, 2018.

Operating Activities

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $791,853 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, as compared to $486,545 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2018, an increase of $305,308. The increase in net cash used in operating activities was primarily due an increase in accounts receivable and an increase in deferred service costs partially offset by a decrease in deferred offering costs, an increase in accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and an increase in deferred revenue.

 

Investing Activities

 

Investing activities provided cash of $0 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019 as compared to $100,000 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2018. In 2018, the cash received was from the repayment of the loan made to Ryde.

 

Financing Activities

 

Financing activities provided cash of $325,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and $200,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. In 2019, sBetOne issued $325,000 of convertible debentures.

Recent Financing Activities

 

In the three months ended March 31, 2019, sBetOne issued $325,000 of convertible notes. These notes may be converted into shares of common stock of sBetOne. In the event that sBetOne issues equity securities in a transaction or series of transactions resulting in aggregate gross proceeds of $2.5 million including the conversion of the notes and any other indebtedness, then the notes and any accrued but unpaid interest thereon, will automatically convert into the equity securities issued in such financings, at a conversion price equal to 70% of the lowest per share price paid by the purchasers of such equity securities in such financings for the first $600,000 notes issued and to 75% of the lowest per share price for notes issued over the first $600,000.

 

On May 9, 2019, an additional $250,000 convertible note was issued.

 

Cash Requirements

 

For the next 12 months, we plan to enter into one or two additional business services agreements with other clients on terms similar to agreements entered with Ryde or BitRail.

 

Our estimated general and administrative expenses, operating expenses, and service costs for the next 12 months are $5,066,000 and are based on our current expenditures given the current market conditions.

 

We will require additional cash resources to meet our planned capital expenditures and working capital requirements for the next 12 months. We expect to derive such cash through the sale of equity or debt securities or by obtaining a credit facility. The sale of additional equity securities will result in dilution to our stockholders. The incurrence of indebtedness will result in debt service obligations, could cause additional dilution to our stockholders, and could require us to agree to financial covenants that could restrict our operations or modify our plans to source a new business opportunity. Financing may not be available in amounts or on terms acceptable to us, if at all. Failure to raise additional funds could cause our company to fail.

 

Going Concern

 

Our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared using generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America applicable to a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. We have not yet established a source of revenues sufficient to cover our operating costs and to allow us to continue as a going concern. We have incurred losses since inception resulting in an accumulated deficit of $5,849,372 as at March 31, 2019 (December 31, 2018: $4,712,862). Our ability to operate as a going concern is dependent on obtaining adequate capital to fund operating losses until we become profitable.

 

In its report on our financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, our independent registered public accounting firm included an explanatory paragraph regarding substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have 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.

ITEM 5. OTHER INFORMATION.

 

On May 9, 2019, sBetOne, a majority-owned subsidiary of our Company, issued a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $250,000 to a subscriber in exchange for a purchase price of $250,000. This is in addition to $325,000 convertible promissory notes issued to four subscribers during the first quarter of 2019 which brings the total convertible promissory notes issued by sBetOne to date to $575,000. Simple interest accrues on the principal balance of this convertible promissory note at a rate of 15% per annum and all outstanding principal and interest that accrues, if not previously converted, are due and payable 18 months from the date of this convertible promissory note. On May 9, 2019, the Company also transferred 2,000,000 founder shares of the common stock it holds in its subsidiary sBetOne to an arm’s length third party. Currently we own approximately 58.5% of the outstanding shares of common stock of sBetOne.

 

If sBetOne issues equity securities in a transaction or series of transactions resulting in aggregate gross proceeds of $2,500,000 (a “Qualified Financing”), including the conversion of this convertible promissory note and any other indebtedness, then this convertible promissory note and any accrued but unpaid interest thereon, will automatically convert into the equity securities of sBetOne issued in such financings, at a conversion price per share equal to the lesser of (i) 70% of the lowest per share price paid by the purchasers of such equity securities in such financings for the first $600,000 and 75% of the lowest price per share price paid by purchasers of such equity securities in such financing for over $600,000 up to $1,500,000, or (ii) the price per share equal to the quotient of $27,000,000 divided by the aggregate number of outstanding shares of sBetOne’s common stock as of immediately prior to the closing of the offering that results in a Qualified Financing, but excluding any outstanding common stock resulting from the prior conversion of any other convertible promissory notes issued prior to the date of this convertible promissory note.
