Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

Three Months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020

(Unaudited)

   

1.         Basis of Presentation:

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared by Kidoz Inc. ("the Company") in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP") applicable to interim financial information and with the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.  Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed, or omitted, pursuant to such rules and regulations.  In the opinion of management, the unaudited interim consolidated financial statements include all adjustments necessary for the fair presentation of the results of the interim periods presented.  All adjustments are of a normal recurring nature, except as otherwise noted below.  These unaudited interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2020, included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed March 31, 2021, with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations for any other interim period or for a full fiscal year.

Continuing operations

These unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the going concern basis, which presumes the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities in the normal course of operations.  The application of the going concern basis is dependent upon the Company achieving profitable operations to generate sufficient cash flows to fund continued operations, or, in the absence of adequate cash flows from operations, obtaining additional financing.  The Company has reported losses from operations for the Three Months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 and has an accumulated deficit of $40,795,525 as at March 31, 2021.  These material uncertainties raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

In view of the matters described in the preceding paragraph, recoverability of a major portion of the recorded asset amounts and settlement of the liability amounts shown in the accompanying balance sheets is dependent upon continued operations of the Company, which in turn is dependent upon the Company's ability to succeed in its future operations. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue in existence.

Management continues to review operations in order to identify additional strategies designed to generate cash flow, improve the Company's financial position, and enable the timely discharge of the Company's obligations.  If management is unable to identify sources of additional cash flow in the short term, it may be required to further reduce or limit operations.

In March 2020 the World Health Organization declared coronavirus COVID-19 a global pandemic. This contagious disease outbreak, which has continued to spread, and any related adverse public health developments, has adversely affected workforces, economies, and financial markets globally, has led to an economic downturn. It has also disrupted the normal operations of many businesses, including the Company's. In early March 2020, the Company's employees commenced working from home and commenced social distancing. This outbreak has affected spending, thereby affecting demand for the

Company's product and the Company's business and results of operations. It is not possible for the Company to predict the duration or magnitude of the outbreak and at this time its full effects on the Company's business, its future results of operations, or ability to raise funds.

2.         Summary of significant accounting policies:

(a)     Basis of presentation:

These unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP") applicable to annual financial information and with the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The financial statements include the accounts of the Company's subsidiaries:

In addition, there are the following dormant subsidiaries; Bingo.com (Antigua) Inc., Bingo.com (Wyoming) Inc., and Bingo Acquisition Corp.

All inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidated financial statements.

(b)     Use of estimates:

The preparation of unaudited interim consolidated financial statements in conformity with US GAAP, requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and recognized revenues and expenses for the reporting periods.

Significant areas requiring the use of estimates include the collectability of accounts receivable, the valuation of stock-based compensation, the valuation of deferred tax assets, the useful lives of intangible assets, and the estimated interest rate of 12% for the license right-of-use assets and 4.12% - 5% for the rental units right-of-use asset. Actual results may differ significantly from these estimates.

2.         Summary of significant accounting policies: (Continued)

(c)  Revenue recognition:

In accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, revenue is recognized when a customer obtains control of promised services. The amount of revenue recognized reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for these services.

We derive substantially all of our revenue from the sale of Ad tech advertising revenue.

To achieve this core principle, the Company applied the following five steps:

1) Identify the contract with a customer

A contract with a customer exists when (i) the Company enters into an enforceable contract with a customer that defines each party's rights regarding the services to be transferred, whose impression count will form the basis of the revenue and identifies the payment terms related to these services, (ii) the contract has commercial substance and, (iii) the Company determines that collection of substantially all consideration for services that are transferred is probable based on the customer's intent and ability to pay the promised consideration. The Company applies judgment in determining the customer's ability and intention to pay, which is based on a variety of factors including the customer's historical payment experience or, in the case of a new customer, published credit and financial information pertaining to the customer.

2) Identify the performance obligations in the contract

Performance obligations promised in a contract are identified based on the services that will be transferred to the customer that are both capable of being distinct, whereby the customer can benefit from the service either on its own or together with other resources that are readily available from third parties or from the Company, and are distinct in the context of the contract, whereby the transfer of the services is separately identifiable from other promises in the contract. To the extent a contract includes multiple promised services, the Company must apply judgment to determine whether promised services are capable of being distinct and distinct in the context of the contract. If these criteria are not met the promised services are accounted for as a combined performance obligation.

3) Determine the transaction price

The transaction price is determined based on the consideration to which the Company will be entitled in exchange for transferring services to the customer. None of the Company's contracts contain financing or variable consideration components.

4) Allocate the transaction price to performance obligations in the contract

If the contract contains a single performance obligation, the entire transaction price is allocated to the single performance obligation. Contracts that contain multiple performance obligations require

2.         Summary of significant accounting policies: (Continued)

(c)  Revenue recognition: (Continued)

an allocation of the transaction price to each performance obligation based on a relative standalone selling price basis. The Company determines standalone selling price based on the price at which the performance obligation is sold separately. If the standalone selling price is not observable through past transactions, the Company estimates the standalone selling price taking into account available information such as market conditions and internally approved pricing guidelines related to the performance obligations.

5) Recognize revenue when or as the Company satisfies a performance obligation

The Company satisfies performance obligations at a point in time as discussed in further detail under "Disaggregation of Revenue" below. Revenue is recognized at the time the related performance obligation is satisfied by transferring a promised service to a customer.

Disaggregation of Revenue

All of the Company's performance obligations, and associated revenue, are generally transferred to customers at a point in time. The Company has the following revenue streams:

1)         Ad tech advertising revenue - The Company generally offers these services under a customer contract Cost-per-Impression (CPM), Cost-Per-Install (CPI) arrangements, Cost per completed video view (CPC) and/or Cost-Per-Action (CPA) arrangements with third-party advertisers and developers, as well as advertising aggregators, generally in the form of insertion orders that specify the type of arrangement (as detailed above) at particular set budget amounts/restraints. These advertiser customer contracts are generally short term in nature at less than one year as the budget amounts are typically spent in full within this time period. These agreements typically include the delivery of Ad tech advertising through partner networks, defined as publishers / developers, to home screens of devices and agree on whose results will be relied on from a revenue point of view.  The Company has concluded that the delivery of the Ad tech advertising is delivered at a point in time and, as such, has concluded these deliveries are a single performance obligation. The Company invoices fees which are generally variable based on the arrangement, which would typically include the number of impressions delivered at a specified price per application. For impressions delivered, revenue is recognized in the month in which the Company delivers the application to the end consumer or the month when the campaign ends.

2) Content revenue - The Company recognizes content revenue on the following forms of revenue:

a) Carriers and OEMs - The Company generally offers these services under a customer contract per tablet device license fee model with OEMs. Monthly or quarterly license fees are based on the OEM agreement with the number of devices the Kidoz Kid Mode is installed upon.

(c)  Revenue recognition: (Continued)

b) Rooplay - The Company generates revenue through subscriptions or premium sales of Rooplay, (www.rooplay.com) the cloud-based EduGame system for kids to learn and play within its games on smartphones and tablet devices, such as Apple's iPhone and iPad, and mobile devices utilizing Google's Android operating system. Users can download the Company's games through digital storefronts and decide to subscribe to the multiple of educational and fun games in the Rooplay, cloud-based EduGame system or make a premium per purchase of particular games. The revenue is recognized net of platform fees.

c) Rooplay licensing - The Company licenses it branded educational games under a monthly cost per game agreement license fee model. Monthly license fees are based on the number of games licensed.

d) Trophy Bingo and Garfield Bingo - The Company generates revenue through in-application purchases ("in-app purchases") within its games; Garfield's Bingo (www.garfieldsbingo.com) and Trophy Bingo (www.trophybingo.com) on smartphones and tablet devices, such as Apple's iPhone and iPad, and mobile devices utilizing Google's Android operating system. Users can download the Company's free-to-play games through Facebook Messenger, Android, Amazon and iOS and pay to acquire virtual currency which can be redeemed in the game for power plays. The initial download of the mobile game from the digital storefront does not create a contract under ASC 606 because of the lack of commercial substance; however, the separate election by the player to make an in-application purchase satisfies the criterion thus creating a contract under ASC 606.

The Company has identified the following performance obligations in these contracts:

            i.          Ongoing game related services such as hosting of game play, storage of customer content, when and if available content updates, maintaining the virtual currency management engine, tracking gameplay statistics, matchmaking as it relates to multiple player gameplay, etc.

            ii.          Obligation to the paying player to continue displaying and providing access to the virtual items within the game.

Neither of these obligations are considered distinct since the actual mobile game and the related ongoing services are both required to purchase and benefit from the related virtual items. As such, the Company's performance obligations represent a single combined performance obligation which is to make the game and the ongoing game related services available to the players. The revenue is recognized net of platform fees.

The Company also has relationships with certain advertising service providers for advertisements within smartphone games and revenue from these advertising providers is generated through impressions, clickthroughs, banner ads, and offers. Offers are the type of advertisements where the

players are rewarded with virtual currency for completing specified actions, such as downloading another application, watching a short video, subscribing to a service or completing a survey. The Company has determined the advertising buyer to be its customer and displaying the advertisements within the mobile games is identified as the single performance obligation. Revenue from advertisements and offers are recognized at the point-in-time the advertisements are displayed in the game or the offer has been completed by the user as the customer simultaneously receives and consumes the benefits provided from these services.

(d) Software development costs:

The Company expensed all software development costs as incurred for the period ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.  As at March 31, 2021 and 2020, all capitalized software development costs have been fully amortized and the Company has no capitalized software development costs.

Software development costs incurred in the research and development of new software products and enhancements to existing software products for external use are expensed as incurred until technological feasibility has been established. After technological feasibility is established, any software development costs are capitalized and amortized at the greater of the straight-line basis over the estimated economic life of the related product or the ratio that current gross revenues for a product bear to the total of current and anticipated future gross revenues for the related product.

As at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, all capitalized software development costs have been fully amortized and the Company has no capitalized software development costs.

Total software development costs were $9,218,046 as at March 31, 2021 (December 31, 2020 - $8,880,753).

(e) Impairment of long-lived assets and long-lived assets to be disposed of:

If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets.  Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount and the fair value less costs to sell.

Intangible assets are recorded at cost less accumulated amortization.  Amortization is provided for annually on the straight-line method over the following periods:

(f)  Goodwill:

The Company accounts for goodwill in accordance with the provisions of ASC 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Others. Goodwill is the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of identifiable assets acquired, less liabilities assumed, in a business combination. The Company reviews goodwill for impairment. Goodwill is not amortized but is evaluated for impairment at least annually or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that it is more likely than not that the carrying amount may not be recoverable.

The goodwill impairment test is used to identify both the existence of impairment and the amount of impairment loss, and compares the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount and is based on discounted future cash flows, based on market multiples applied to free cash flow. The determination of the fair value of our reporting units requires management to make significant estimates and assumptions including the selection of control premiums, discount rates, terminal growth rates, forecasts of revenue and expense growth rates, income tax rates, changes in working capital, depreciation, amortization and capital expenditures. Changes in assumptions concerning future financial results, exogenous market conditions, or other underlying assumptions could have a significant impact on either the fair value of the reporting unit or the amount of the goodwill impairment charge. If the carrying value of the reporting unit exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss is recognized in an amount equal to that excess, limited to the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit.

During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company deemed there was no impairment of the goodwill.

(g)  New accounting pronouncements and changes in accounting policy:

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, "Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes". The ASU is expected to reduce cost and complexity related to the accounting for income taxes by removing specific exceptions to general principles in Topic 740 (eliminating the need for an organization to analyze whether certain exceptions apply in a given period) and improving financial statement preparers' application of certain income tax-related guidance.  This standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption of this standard is permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this guidance will have a material impact on the Company's financial position, results of operations and liquidity.

There have been no other recent accounting standards, or changes in accounting standards, during the period ended March 31, 2021, as compared to the recent accounting standards described in the Annual Report, that are of material significance, or have potential material significance, to us.

(h)  Financial instruments and fair value measurements:

(i)  Fair values:

Fair value is the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on measurement date. The Company classifies assets and liabilities recorded at fair value under the fair value hierarchy based upon the observability of inputs used in valuation techniques. Observable inputs (highest level) reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs (lowest level) reflect internally developed market assumptions. The fair value measurements are classified under the following hierarchy:

Level 1-Observable inputs that reflect quoted market prices (unadjusted) for identical assets and liabilities in active markets;

Level 2-Observable inputs, other than quoted market prices, that are either directly or indirectly observable in the marketplace for identical or similar assets and liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets and liabilities; and

Level 3-Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity that are significant to the fair value of assets or liabilities.

When available, we use quoted market prices to determine fair value, and we classify such measurements within Level 1.  In some cases where market prices are not available, we make use of observable market based inputs to calculate fair value, in which case the measurements are classified within Level 2.  If quoted or observable market prices are not available, fair value is based upon valuations in which one or more significant inputs are unobservable, including internally developed models that use, where possible, current market-based parameters such as interest rates, yield curves and currency rates.  These measurements are classified within Level 3.

Fair value measurements are classified according to the lowest level input or value-driver that is significant to the valuation.  A measurement may therefore be classified within Level 3 even though there may be significant inputs that are readily observable.

Fair value measurement includes the consideration of nonperformance risk.  Nonperformance risk refers to the risk that an obligation (either by a counterparty) will not be fulfilled.  For financial assets traded in an active market (Level 1 and certain Level 2), the nonperformance risk is included in the market price.  For certain other financial assets and liabilities (certain Level 2 and Level 3), our fair value calculations have been adjusted accordingly.

The fair value of accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, and accounts payable and accrued liabilities - related party approximate their financial statement carrying amounts due to the short-term maturities of these instruments and are therefore carried at historical cost basis.

(h)  Financial instruments and fair value measurements: (Continued)

The government CEBA loan is classified as a financial liability and its fair value was determined using the effective interest rate method, and is carried at amortized cost.

Fair values determined by Level 3 inputs are unobservable data points for the asset or liability, and included situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the asset. The Company's cash and long-term cash equivalents were measured using Level 1 inputs. Stock-based compensation was measured using Level 2 inputs. Goodwill impairment was measured using Level 3 inputs.

(ii) Foreign currency risk:

The Company operates internationally, which gives rise to the risk that cash flows may be adversely impacted by exchange rate fluctuations.  The Company has not entered into any forward exchange contracts or other derivative instrument to hedge against foreign exchange risk.

 

3.           Accounts receivable:

There is no discount rate implicit in the Anguilla office operating lease agreement, so the Company estimated a 5% discount rate for the incremental borrowing rate for the lease as of the adoption date, January 1, 2019. There is no discount rate implicit in the license agreement, so the Company estimated a 12% discount rate for the incremental borrowing rate for the licenses as of the adoption date, January 1, 2019.

Effective April 1, 2019, we recognized lease assets and liabilities of $125,474, in relation to the Vancouver office. We estimated a discount rate of 4.12%.

We elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within Topic 842, which allowed us to carry forward prior conclusions about lease identification, classification and initial direct costs for leases entered into prior to adoption of Topic 842.

Additionally, we elected to not separate lease and non-lease components for all of our leases. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, our current offices, we elected the short-term lease exemption, which allowed us to not recognize right-of-use assets or lease liabilities for qualifying leases existing at transition and new leases we may enter into in the future, as there is significant uncertainty on whether the leases will be renewed.

Kidoz Inc. (TSXV:KIDZ) is a mobile advertising technology company and owner of the KIDOZ Safe Ad Network (www.kidoz.net) and the Kidoz Publisher SDK.  By developing solutions for app developers to monetize with safe, relevant, and fun ads we help keep the Google and Apple app stores safe and free for children.  Our commitment to children's privacy and safety has created one of the fastest growing mobile networks in the world.  Unlike most digital advertising, every campaign on the Kidoz platform is free of location information, device identifiers, behavioural data, and other trackers used by advertisers to identify and track users across the Internet commonly known as IDFA and AAID.  Our technology does not rely on any permanent identifiers, and as Google and Apple begin to disallow persistent trackers from being employed by any network (child-directed or not), Kidoz's strength increases.

Kidoz is the market leader in child and pre-teen safe mobile advertising and the segment is only beginning to develop as new rules and stricter regulations are being enacted and enforced by Google, Apple, and governments around the world who demand privacy and safety for children online.  The Kidoz proprietary advertising technology is installed in thousands of different apps, making it the most popular child focused mobile solution in the market.  Our KIDOZ Safe Ad Network offers publishers a unique technology and monetization solution that every app with kids traffic can use to compliantly monetize their content.

Kidoz builds and maintains the Kidoz SDK (Software Development Kit) that app developers install into their apps before releasing them into the App Stores.   The Kidoz SDK is the core of the advertising technology that enables Kidoz to have advertising impressions available for sale.  The Kidoz proprietary advertising system is compliant with COPPA, GDPR-K and other regulations adopted to protect children in a complex digital world.  While a closed proprietary system design made sense for the initial phase of Kidoz, digital advertising systems are constantly evolving and Kidoz is no exception.  Kidoz continues to upgrade its advertising systems to be compatible with the latest IAB specifications for real-time-bidding, header bidding, and server-to-server direct connections.  Our design of these upgrades incorporates a view to their utilization, not only in the kid's marketplace but to the entire advertising market. The upgrades in the Kidoz platform increases our commitment to protect children, increases the value we offer to our publishing partners, and increases the transparency we provide to the advertisers on the Kidoz system. In addition, we are building the foundation to increase the capabilities of our technology to handle more types of mobile advertising thereby significantly increasing the reach and the size of our addressable market.

Driving our revenue growth is strong underlying system growth for both users and publishers that are using our Kidoz technology.  Media budgets continue to shift from linear TV to digital platforms like Kidoz as brands seek to engage their customers where kids spend most of their screen time.  As mobile penetration among kids continues to increase the global usage of mobile is steadily increasing.  In addition, regulation at the government level is positively influencing growth of the KIDOZ Safe Ad Network. COPPA in America and GDPR in Europe have forced advertisers and publishers to ensure their data and advertising methodologies are safe. Regulators in America are considering updating COPPA to further enhance child safety online, and regulators in China, India and other regions are considering similar measures. As Kidoz is compliant, the Company benefits from all child-safe advertising regulation.

Building on Kidoz's high-growth performance in 2020, management plans to further invest in similar growth strategies in 2021.  Our sales, product, and operational strategies are custom fit to match the favourable regulatory, consumer, and technological trends occurring in the market.  Kidoz is actively recruiting the biggest and most successful apps in the world to offer our technology to their kids audiences for monetization.  Each time a new app adopts our technology, our advertising inventory increases and we offer increased value to our advertising partners.  The Company is developing technology to access a wider range of inventories app types so that we can continue to increase Kidoz's capabilities and importance in the market. 

Page 26

Furthermore, while the focus of the Company is the development and expansion of the KIDOZ Safe Ad Network, we are investigating options to use our technology to expand into new markets, either through new connections to the wider mobile advertising market, or via synergistic M&A.

Kidoz's mobile products include the Kid Mode Operating System installed on millions of OEM tablets worldwide, Rooplay (www.rooplay.com) the cloud-based EduGame system for kids to learn and play, Garfield's Bingo (www.garfieldsbingo.com) live on Facebook Messenger, Android, and iOS; and Trophy Bingo (www.trophybingo.com), live across mobile platforms.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our financial statements, which except for lack of all detailed note disclosures, have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, management evaluates these judgments and estimates, including whether there are any uncertainties as to compliance with the revenue recognition criteria described below, and recoverability of long-lived assets, as well as the assessment as to whether there are contingent assets and liabilities that should be recognized or disclosed for the consolidated financial statements to fairly present the information required to be set forth therein. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

We consider the following accounting policies to be both those most important to the portrayal of our financial condition and require the most subjective judgment:

- Revenue recognition; 

- Software development

- Impairment of long-lived assets

- Goodwill

Revenue Recognition

In accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, revenue is recognized when a customer obtains control of promised services. The amount of revenue recognized reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for these services.

We derive substantially all of our revenue from the sale of Ad tech advertising revenue.

To achieve this core principle, the Company applied the following five steps:

1) Identify the contract with a customer

A contract with a customer exists when (i) the Company enters into an enforceable contract with a customer that defines each party's rights regarding the services to be transferred, whose impression count will form the basis of the revenue and identifies the payment terms related to these services, (ii) the contract has commercial substance and, (iii) the Company determines that collection of substantially all consideration for services that are transferred is probable based on the customer's intent and ability to pay the promised consideration. The Company applies judgment in determining the customer's ability and intention to pay,

Page 27

which is based on a variety of factors including the customer's historical payment experience or, in the case of a new customer, published credit and financial information pertaining to the customer.

2) Identify the performance obligations in the contract

Performance obligations promised in a contract are identified based on the services that will be transferred to the customer that are both capable of being distinct, whereby the customer can benefit from the service either on its own or together with other resources that are readily available from third parties or from the Company, and are distinct in the context of the contract, whereby the transfer of the services is separately identifiable from other promises in the contract. To the extent a contract includes multiple promised services, the Company must apply judgment to determine whether promised services are capable of being distinct and distinct in the context of the contract. If these criteria are not met the promised services are accounted for as a combined performance obligation.

3) Determine the transaction price

The transaction price is determined based on the consideration to which the Company will be entitled in exchange for transferring services to the customer. None of the Company's contracts contain financing or variable consideration components.

4) Allocate the transaction price to performance obligations in the contract

If the contract contains a single performance obligation, the entire transaction price is allocated to the single performance obligation. Contracts that contain multiple performance obligations require an allocation of the transaction price to each performance obligation based on a relative standalone selling price basis. The Company determines standalone selling price based on the price at which the performance obligation is sold separately. If the standalone selling price is not observable through past transactions, the Company estimates the standalone selling price taking into account available information such as market conditions and internally approved pricing guidelines related to the performance obligations.

5) Recognize revenue when or as the Company satisfies a performance obligation

The Company satisfies performance obligations at a point in time as discussed in further detail under "Disaggregation of Revenue" below. Revenue is recognized at the time the related performance obligation is satisfied by transferring a promised service to a customer.

Disaggregation of Revenue

All of the Company's performance obligations, and associated revenue, are generally transferred to customers at a point in time. The Company has the following revenue streams:

1) Ad tech advertising revenue - The Company generally offers these services under a customer contract Cost-per-Impression (CPM), Cost-Per-Install or CPI arrangements, Cost per completed video view or CPC and/or Cost-Per-Action or CPA arrangements with third-party advertisers and developers, as well as advertising aggregators, generally in the form of insertion orders that specify the type of arrangement (as detailed above) at particular set budget amounts/restraints. These advertiser customer contracts are generally short term in nature at less than one year as the budget amounts are typically spent in full within this time period. These agreements typically include the delivery of Ad tech advertising through partner networks, defined as publishers / developers, to home screens of devices and agree on whose results will be relied on from a revenue point of view. The Company has concluded that the delivery of the Ad tech advertising is delivered at a point in time and, as such, has concluded these deliveries are a single

Page 28

performance obligation. The Company invoices fees which are generally variable based on the arrangement, which would typically include the number of impressions delivered at a specified price per application. For impressions delivered, revenue is recognized in the month in which the Company delivers the application to the end consumer.

2) Content revenue - The Company recognizes content revenue on the following forms of revenue:

a) Carriers and OEMs - The Company generally offers these services under a customer contract per tablet device license fee model with OEMs. Monthly or quarterly license fees are based on the OEM agreement with the number of devices the Kidoz Kid Mode is installed upon.

b) Rooplay - The Company generates revenue through subscriptions or premium sales of Rooplay, (www.rooplay.com) the cloud-based EduGame system for kids to learn and play within its games on smartphones and tablet devices, such as Apple's iPhone and iPad, and mobile devices utilizing Google's Android operating system. Users can download the Company's games through Digital Storefronts and decide to subscribe to the multiple of educational and fun games in the Rooplay, cloud-based EduGame system or make a premium per purchase of particular games. The revenue is recognized net of platform fees.

c) Rooplay licensing - The Company licenses it branded educational games under a monthly cost per game agreement license fee model. Monthly license fees are based on the number of games licensed.

d) Trophy Bingo and Garfield Bingo - The Company generates revenue through in-application purchases ("in-app purchases") within its games; Garfield's Bingo (www.garfieldsbingo.com) and Trophy Bingo (www.trophybingo.com) on smartphones and tablet devices, such as Apple's iPhone and iPad, and mobile devices utilizing Google's Android operating system. Users can download the Company's free-to-play games through Facebook Messenger, Android, Amazon and iOS and pay to acquire virtual currency which can be redeemed in the game for power plays. The initial download of the mobile game from the Digital Storefront does not create a contract under ASC 606 because of the

lack of commercial substance; however, the separate election by the player to make an in-application purchase satisfies the criterion thus creating a contract under ASC 606. The Company has identified the following performance obligations in these contracts:

   i.          Ongoing game related services such as hosting of game play, storage of customer content, when and if available content updates, maintaining the virtual currency management engine, tracking gameplay statistics, matchmaking as it relates to multiple player gameplay, etc.

   ii.          Obligation to the paying player to continue displaying and providing access to the virtual items within the game.

Neither of these obligations are considered distinct since the actual mobile game and the related ongoing services are both required to purchase and benefit from the related virtual items. As such, the Company's performance obligations represent a single combined performance obligation which is to make the game and the ongoing game related services available to the players. The revenue is recognized net of platform fees.

The Company also has relationships with certain advertising service providers for advertisements within smartphone games and revenue from these advertising providers is generated through impressions, clickthroughs, banner ads, and offers. Offers are the type of advertisements where the

Page 29

players are rewarded with virtual currency for completing specified actions, such as downloading another application, watching a short video, subscribing to a service or completing a survey. The Company has determined the advertising buyer to be its customer and displaying the advertisements within the mobile games is identified as the single performance obligation. Revenue from advertisements and offers are recognized at the point-in-time the advertisements are displayed in the game or the offer has been completed by the user as the customer simultaneously receives and consumes the benefits provided from these services.

Software Development Costs

The Company expensed all software development costs as incurred for the period ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.  As at March 31, 2021 and 2020, all capitalized software development costs have been fully amortized and the Company has no capitalized software development costs.

Software development costs incurred in the research and development of new software products and enhancements to existing software products for external use are expensed as incurred until technological feasibility has been established. After technological feasibility is established, any software development costs are capitalized and amortized at the greater of the straight-line basis over the estimated economic life of the related product or the ratio that current gross revenues for a product bear to the total of current and anticipated future gross revenues for the related product.

As at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, all capitalized software development costs have been fully amortized and the Company has no capitalized software development costs.

Total software development costs were $9,218,046 as at March 31, 2021 (December 31, 2020 - $8,880,753).

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

The Company accounts for long-lived assets in accordance with the provisions of ASC 360, Property, Plant and Equipment and ASC 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Others. During the periods presented, the only long-lived assets reported on the Company's consolidated balance sheet are equipment, and security deposits.  These provisions require that long-lived assets and certain identifiable recorded intangibles be

reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.  Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to future net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset.

If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets.  Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount and the fair value less costs to sell.

The Company identified the following intangible assets in the acquisition of  Kidoz Ltd. Intangible assets are recorded at cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization is provided for annually on the straight-line method over the following periods:

 

 

Amortization period

Ad Tech technology

 

5 years

Kidoz OS technology

 

3 years

Customer relationship

 

8 years

Goodwill

The Company accounts for goodwill in accordance with the provisions of ASC 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Others. Goodwill is the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of identifiable assets acquired,

Page 30

less liabilities assumed, in a business combination. The Company reviews goodwill for impairment. Goodwill is not amortized but is evaluated for impairment at least annually or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that it is more likely than not that the carrying amount may not be recoverable.

The goodwill impairment test is used to identify both the existence of impairment and the amount of impairment loss, and compares the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount and is based on discounted future cash flows, based on market multiples applied to free cash flow. The determination of the fair value of our reporting units requires management to make significant estimates and assumptions including the selection of control premiums, discount rates, terminal growth rates, forecasts of revenue and expense growth rates, income tax rates, changes in working capital, depreciation, amortization and capital expenditures. Changes in assumptions concerning future financial results, exogenous market conditions, or other underlying assumptions could have a significant impact on either the fair value of the reporting unit or the amount of the goodwill impairment charge. If the carrying value of the reporting unit exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss is recognized in an amount equal to that excess, limited to the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit.

During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company deemed there was no impairment of the goodwill.

Total revenue, net of platform fees (to Apple, Google and Amazon) and withholding taxes, for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, increased to $1,557,942, an increase of 58% from revenue of $983,979 for the first quarter of 2020. Ad Tech advertising revenue increased to $1,504,300 for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, an increase of 68% from ad tech advertising revenue of $895,555 in the first quarter of 2020. Content revenue decreased to $53,642, for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, a decrease of 39% from revenue of $88,424 in the first quarter of 2020. The increase in total revenue compared to the first quarter of fiscal

2020 is due to the strong demand for kid safe advertising generated by the introduction of strong regulations worldwide.

            Selling and marketing expenses

Selling and marketing expenses were $128,688 for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, an increase of 11% over expenses of $115,707 in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. This increase in sales and marketing expenses in the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020 is due to hiring additional sales staff. 

We expect to incur increased sales and marketing expenses in selling the Ad tech advertising and to grow the Ad tech advertising revenue and to bring new players to Rooplay; our Rooplay Originals; and our bingo games.   There can be no assurances that these expenditures will result in increased traffic or significant additional revenue.

            General and administrative expenses

General and administrative expenses consist primarily of premises costs for our offices, legal and professional fees, and other general corporate and office expenses. General and administrative expenses increased to $157,695 for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, an increase of 10% from costs of $143,255 for the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The increase in general and administrative expenses is due an increase in fees paid to our professional advisors. The Company continues to maintain its current office space despite the large majority of our staff continuing to work from home since early March 2020.

Page 31

We expect to continue to incur general and administrative expenses to support the business, and there can be no assurances that we will be able to generate sufficient revenue to cover these expenses.

Salaries, wages, consultants and benefits

Salaries, wages, consultants, and benefits decreased to $132,242 for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, a decrease of 3% compared to salaries, wages, consultants, and benefits of $136,240 in the first quarter of 2020. This decrease compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020 is due to reduction in consulting fees.

Depreciation and amortization

Intangible assets are amortized using a straight-line method over three to eight years.  These intangible assets include customer lists, the technology for Kidoz OS and the software development kits (SDK) for advertising platform. These intangible assets are as result of the acquisition of Kidoz Ltd. The amortization for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, was $139,018.

Equipment is depreciated using the declining balance method over the useful lives of the assets, ranging from three to five years. Depreciation and amortization increased to $2,814 during the quarter ended March 31, 2021, an increase over costs of $2,313 during the same quarter in the prior year. This increase in depreciation and amortization compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020, is due writing off of old equipment.

Content and software development

The Company does not capitalize its development costs. The Company expensed $337,293 in content and software development costs during the quarter ended March 31, 2021, an increase of 18% compared to content and software development costs of $284,723 expensed during the first quarter of fiscal 2020.  The increase is due to an increase focus in development of our base technology and the development of playable ads as a result of hiring additional development staff. 

Stock-based compensation expense

During the quarter ended March 31, 2021, the Company incurred non-cash stock compensation expenses of $77,021 from the issuance of stock options granted during the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020, an increase compared to stock-based compensation expense $541 in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.  This increase compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020 is due to the granting of stock options during the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020.  The options are issued to consultants and employees as per the Companies amended 2015 Stock Option Plan.

            Net loss and loss per share

The net loss after taxation for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, amounted to ($347,044), a loss of ($0.00) per share, compared to a net loss of ($403,924) or ($0.00) per share in the quarter ended March 31, 2020.  This decrease in total loss for the quarter compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020 is due to the strong demand for kid safe advertising generated by the introduction of strong regulations worldwide.

Earnings before interest; depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation and impairment of goodwill ("EBITDA") for the period ended March 31, 2021, amounted to ($110,682), a reduction of 123%, compared to EBITDA of ($246,954) in the period ended March 31, 2020.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

We had cash of $1,611,592 and working capital of $2,951,465 at March 31, 2021. This compares to cash of $1,226,045 and working capital of $3,071,545 as at December 31, 2020.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2021, we provided cash of $393,060 in operating activities compared to cash used in operating activities of ($400,604) in the same period in the prior year.

Page 32

During the quarter ended March 31, 2021, we used cash in investing activities of ($2,265) compared to cash used in investing activities of ($4,909) in the same period in the prior year.

Net cash used in financing activities was ($5,248) in the quarter ended March 31, 2021. This compares to cash used in financing activities of ($16,187) in the same period in the prior year. 

Our future capital requirements will depend on a number of factors, including the revenues from the Ad tech business; the revenues from the Kidoz OS license fees; the revenues from the content platforms and games; the costs associated with the further development of the Ad tech advertising business, the further development of the content platform including, Rooplay; Rooplay Originals; Shoal.js; Garfield's Bingo and Trophy Bingo; the cost of sales and marketing of the Ad tech business, the Kidoz OS license fees and player acquisition costs for Rooplay; Rooplay Originals; Garfield's Bingo and Trophy Bingo, the development of new products, the acquisition of new companies and the success of Rooplay; Rooplay Originals; Garfield's Bingo and Trophy Bingo.

ITEM 4           Controls and Procedures

(a)        Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures.

As required by Rule 13a-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), the Company carried out an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of the Company's management, including the Co-Chief Executive Officers and the Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2021. In designing and evaluating the Company's disclosure controls and procedures, the Company and its management recognize that there are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures, including the possibility of human error and the circumvention or overriding of the controls and procedures. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving their desired control objectives. Additionally, in evaluating and implementing possible controls and procedures, the Company's management was required to apply its reasonable judgment. Furthermore, in the course of this evaluation, management considered certain internal control areas, in which we have made and are continuing to make changes to improve and enhance controls. Based upon the required evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer concluded that as of March 31, 2021, the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were effective (at the "reasonable assurance" level mentioned above) to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports it files or submits 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.

From time-to-time, the Company and its management have conducted and will continue to conduct further reviews and, from time to time put in place additional documentation, of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures, as well as its internal control over financial reporting. The Company may from time to time make changes aimed at enhancing their effectiveness, as well as changes aimed at ensuring that the Company's systems evolve with, and meet the needs of, the Company's business. These changes may include changes necessary or desirable to address recommendations of the Company's management, its counsel and/or its independent auditors, including any recommendations of its independent auditors arising out of their audits and reviews of the Company's financial statements. These changes may include changes to the Company's own systems, as well as to the systems of businesses that the Company has acquired or that the Company may acquire in the future and will, if made, be intended to enhance the effectiveness of the Company's controls and procedures. The Company is also continually striving to improve its management and operational efficiency and the Company expects that its efforts in that regard will from time to time directly or indirectly affect the Company's disclosure controls and procedures, as well as the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

Page 33

(b)        Changes in internal controls.

There were no significant changes in the Company's internal controls or other factors that could significantly affect the Company's internal controls subsequent to the date of their evaluation.
