General Background of the Company

 

CMG Holdings Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “CMG”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on July 30, 2004 under the name of “Pebble Beach Enterprises, Inc.” From the date of incorporation until August 2004, it was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fresh Veg Broker.com, Inc. (“Fresh Veg”), a Nevada corporation. In August 2004, the Company was spun off from Fresh Veg. Until May 27, 2008, the Company was a real estate investment company with three areas of operation: a) real estate acquisition and resale; b) real estate development and resale; and c) real estate consulting and joint ventures. On February 20, 2008, a majority of the shares of the Company were sold by the shareholders who were actively involved in the Company’s prior real estate business (the “Change in Control”). Also, on February 20, 2008, the Company changed its name to “CMG Holdings, Inc.” Since the Change in Control, the Company started to engage in the business of providing marketing, entertainment and management services.

In October 2011, the Company changed its name from “CMG Holdings, Inc.” to its current name “CMG Holdings Group, Inc.” to better reflect the business of the Company.

 

The Company is a marketing communications company focused on the operation of organizations in the alternative advertising, digital media, experiential and interactive marketing, and entertainment. Our Company was formed by a core group of executives who have held senior level positions with several of the largest companies in the entertainment and marketing management industry. Our Company delivers customized marketing solutions at optimize profitability by concentrating our resources in those segments of the marketing communications and entertainment industry. Our Company operates in the sectors of experiential marketing, event marketing, commercial rights, and talent management.

 

Experiential marketing includes production and promotion, event designs, sponsorship evaluation, negotiation and activation, talent buying, show production, stage and set designs, data analysis and management.Wealso offer branding and design services, including graphic, industrial and package designs across traditional and new media, public relations, social media, media development and relations and interactive marketing platforms to provide our clients with a customary private digital media networks to design and develop individual broadcasting digital media channels for our clients to sell, promote and enhance their digital media video contents through mobile, online and social mediums.

 

Below is the business description of XA, The Experiential Agency, Inc., our wholly-owned subsidiary.

 

XA,The Experiential Agency, Inc.(“XA”)

 

Overview

 

XA, The Experiential Agency, Inc. (“XA”) is the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary engaged in event marketing and management. XA was acquired by the Company on April 1, 2009. It engages in a diverse range of marketing services, including interactive event strategy and planning, creative development, and nontraditional out of home marketing. XA has staged movie and show premiers, cross country tours, hosted VIP events, staged press stunts, and other types of media events and services for leading shows, production houses, luxury fashion brands, nonprofit agencies and local communities across the United States. In addition to the physical event planning, logistics and event implementation, XA also engages in the interactive side of the events to increase branding awareness over the Internet.

 

XA’s strong competitive advantage are (i) its long term presence and it is in its 31st year as a successful top tier event marketing agency, (ii) its outstanding long-term vendor relationships that help deliver exceptional programs to its clients,and

(iii)       the vertical integration that gives its clients a single source for all their event marketing needs, which we believe will requirelessoutsourcing and increased profitability and delivering superior customer service and creates one of a kind events and programs.

 

Business Model

 

Rooted in brand creativity and client partnerships, XA maintains unique client relationships by anticipating client challenges and providing innovative solutions. The XA business model is taking strategic marketing programs to new levels of audience experience through alternative advertising and experiential marketing and interactive media solutions. The XA marketing capabilities enable their clients and audience to “experience” events compared to just hearing or seeing their client’s messages through holistic experiences to boost sales and increase brand awareness and customer affinity.

 

While XA continues to seek opportunities and win projects from Fortune 100 clients in the larger enterprise segment, we believe that rapid revenue growth opportunities and margin improvements are available in the comprehensive advisory services of the small to medium enterprise (SME) segment. The SME market has many smaller firms that specialize in only a few aspects of the event marketing and business communications segments, yetSME’sface equally important challenges in terms of brand building and content management. By acting as a comprehensive integrated single source for the total marketing needs of the SMEs, XA has created a niche for itself on a national scale and will replicate the same success strategy internationally under the Company’s holding company model. Given the fact that brand marketers are demanding a full-service agency for developing and executing integrated marketing campaigns, we believe that XA will take advantage of the accelerating secular trend of shifts in corporate emphasis toward online event/promotional marketing versus traditional media driven selling efforts. XA is specifically focused on strategically target key segments within the event marketing space in order to capture market share in its existing geographic locations as well as enhance its national and international presence. XA is positioning itself as the one of the few source marketing partners in the market with its unique selling point being the ability to act as a source for the client’s total marketing needs. This would encompass the entire spectrum of services associated with marketing, from strategizing and defining an event portfolio, conceptualization of the event theme and content creation to the final implementation/management of events. XA will also provide an ultimate client return on investment assessment following each implementation.

Sources of Revenue

 

Our revenues are generated through the execution of marketing and communications programs derived primarily across the sectors of event management, talent management and commercial rights as well as various media, planning and other management programs. The majority of our contracts with our clients are negotiated individually and the terms of engagement with our clients and basis in which we earn fees and commissions will vary significantly. Contracts with our client are multifaceted arrangements that may include incentive compensation provisions and may include vendor credits. Our largest clients are corporations where they may arrange for our services to be provided locally or nationally. Similar to larger marketing communications companies operating in our sector, our revenues are primarily derived from planning and executing marketing and communications programs in various operating sectors. Most of our client contracts are individually negotiated where terms of engagements and consideration in which we earn revenues vary among planning, creation, implementation and executions of marketing and communications programs specific to the sectors of talent management, event management, and commercial rights. Several of our clients have complex contract arrangements; therefore, we provide services to our clients from our own offices as well as onsite where the events are held. In arranging for such services, wemayenter into national or local agreements and estimates are involved in determining both amount and timing of revenue recognition under these arrangements.

 

Our fees are calculated to reflect our expertise based on monthly rates as well as markup percentages and the relative overhead expenses to execute services provided to our clients. Clients may seek to include incentive compensation components for successful execution as part of the total compensation. Commissions earned are based on services provided and are usually calculated on a percentage over the total revenues generated for our clients. Our revenues can also be generated when clients pay gross rates before we pay reduced rates—the difference is commissions earned which is either retained in total or shared with the client depending on thenatureof the services agreement. Our generated revenues are dependent upon the marketing and communications requirements of our corporate clients and dependent on the terms of the client contract. The revenues for services performed can be recognized as proportional performance, monthly basis or execution of the completed contracts. For revenues recognized on a completed contract basis, the contract terms are customary in the industry. Our client contracts generally provide terms for termination by either party on 90-day notice.

 

Competition

 

In the highly competitive and fragmented marketing and communications industry, our Company competes for business with mid-size marketing firms such as Mktg, Inc. as well as large global holding companies such as International Management Group, Interpublic Group of Companies, Inc., MDC Partners, Inc. and Omnicom. These global companies generally have greater resources than those available to us, and such resources may enable them to aggressively compete with our Company’s marketing communications businesses.Wealso face competition from numerous independent agencies that operate in multiple markets. Our competitive advantage is to provide clients with marketing strategies that are focused on increasing clients’ revenues and profits.

 

Industry Trend

 

Historically, event management and talent management have been primary service provided by global companies in the marketing communications industry. However, as clients aim to establish individual and enhanced relationships with their customers to more accurately measure the effectiveness of their marketing expenditures, specialized and digital communications servicesareconsuming a growing portion of marketing dollars. This increases the demand for a broader range of marketing communications services. The mass market audience is giving way to life style segments, social events/networks, and online/mobile communities, with each segment requiring a different message and/or different, often nontraditional, channels of communication. Global marketers now seek innovative strategies, concepts and programs for new opportunities for small to mid-sized communications companies.

 

Clients

 

The Company serves clients across the marketing communication industry. Marketing agreements and talent representation for our clients means that the Company handles marketing communications and multiple brands, product lines of the client in every geographical location. We have contracts with many of our clients and the terms of the contracts are customary in the industry. These contracts provide for termination by either party on relatively short notice. “Management’s Discussion and Analysis — Executive Overview” for a further discussion of our arrangements with our clients.

 

Employees

 

As of December 31, 2019, the Company and its subsidiary had 3 employees. The personal service character of the marketing communications sector, the quality of personnel and executive management are crucially important to the Company’s continuing success. As of December 31, 2019, the Company has 3 independent contractors they are used on a regular Basis for services.

 

 

Environmental Laws

 

The company believes it complies with all regulations concerning the discharge of materials into the environment, and such regulations have not had a material effect on the capital expenditures or operations of the company.

ITEM 1A. RISKFACTORS

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This registration statement on Form 10 contains forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections about us, our future performance, the market in which we operate, our beliefs and our Management’s assumptions. In addition, other written or oral statements that constitute forward-looking statements may be made by us or on our behalf.Wordssuch as “expects”, “anticipates”, “targets”, “goals”, “projects”, “intends”, “plans”, “believes”, “seeks”, “estimates”, variations of suchwordsand similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These statements are not guaranteeing offutureperformance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict or assess. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecast in such forward-looking statements.

 

Any investment in our shares of common stock involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the following information about these risks, together with the other information contained in this annual report before you decide to invest in our common stock. Each of the following risks may materially and adversely affect our business objective, plan of operation and financial condition. These risks may cause the market price of our common stock to decline, which may cause you to lose all or a part of the money you invested in our common stock. We provide the following cautionary discussion of risks, uncertainties and possible inaccurate assumptions relevant to our business plan. In addition to other information included in this annual report, the following factors should be considered in evaluating the Company’s business and future prospects.

 

Dependence on key personnel.

 

The Company is dependent upon the continued services of Management.Tothe extent that his services become unavailable,theCompany will be required to obtain other qualified personnel and there can be no assurance that it will be able to recruit qualified persons upon acceptable terms.

 

The Company’s officers and directors may allocate their time to other businesses activities, thereby causing conflicts of interest as to how much time to devote to the Company’s affairs and prioritize the availability of an acquisition with the Company. This could have a negative impact on the Company’s ability to consummate an acquisition in a timely manner, if at all.

Risks Related to Our Common Stock

 

The Company’s shares of common stock are traded from time to time on the OTC Pink Sheet Market.

Our common stock is traded on the OTC Pink Sheet Market. There can be no assurance that there will be a liquid trading market for the Company’s common stock following an acquisition. In the event that a liquid trading market commences, there can be no assurance as to the market price of the Company’s shares of common stock, whether any trading market will provide liquidity to investors, or whether any trading market will be sustained. As a result of becoming fully-reporting management is evalulating moving to a higher exchange subject to listing requirements.

 

Our common stock is subject to the Penny Stock Rules of the SEC and the trading market in our common stock is limited, which makes transactions in our stock cumbersome and may reduce the value of an investment in our common stock.

 

The Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted Rule 3a51-1 which establishes the definition of a “penny stock,” for the purposes relevant to us, as any equity security that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share or with an exercise price of less than

$5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. For any transaction involving a penny stock, unless exempt, Rule 15g-9 require:

 

 that a broker or dealer approve a person’s account for transactions in penny stocks; and

 

     ●    the broker or dealer receive from the investor a written agreement to the transaction, setting forth the identity and quantity of the       penny stock to be purchased.

  

In order to approve a person’s account for transactions in penny stocks, the broker or dealer must:

 

obtain financial information and investment experience objectives of the person; and
make a reasonable determination that the transactions in penny stocks are suitable for that person and the person has sufficient knowledge and experience in financial matters to be capable of evaluating the risks of transactions in penny stocks.

 

The broker or dealer must also deliver, prior to any transaction in a penny stock, a disclosure schedule prescribed by the SEC relating to the penny stock market, which, in highlight form:

 

sets forth the basis on which the broker or dealer made the suitability determination; and
that the broker or dealer received a signed, written agreement from the investor prior to the transaction.

 

Generally, brokers may be less willing to execute transactions in securities subject to the “penny stock” rules. This may make it more difficult for investors to dispose of our common stock and cause a decline in the market value of our stock.

 

Disclosure also has to be made about the risks of investing in penny stocks in both public offerings and in secondary trading and about the commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative, current quotations for the securities and the rights and remedies available to an investor in cases of fraud in penny stock transactions. Finally, monthly statements have to be sent disclosing recent price information for the penny stock held in the account and information on the limited market in penny stocks.

 

State blue sky registration; potential limitations on resale of the Company’s common stock

 

The holders of the Company’s shares of common stock registered under the Exchange Act and those persons who desire to purchase them in any trading market that may develop in the future, should be aware that there may be state blue-sky law restrictions upon the ability of investors to resell the Company’s securities. Accordingly, investors should consider the secondary market for the Company’s securities to be a limited one.

 

It is the intention of the Company’s Management following the consummation of an acquisition to seek coverage and publication of information regarding the Company in an accepted publication manual which permits a manual exemption. The manual exemption permits a security to be distributed in a particular state without being registered if the Company issuing the security has a listing for that security in a securities manual recognized by the state. However, it is not enough for the security to be listed in a recognized manual. The listing entry must contain (1) the names of issuers, officers, and directors, (2) an issuer’s balance sheet, and (3) a profit and loss statement for either the fiscal year preceding the balance sheet or for the most recent fiscal year of operations. Furthermore, the manual exemption is a non-issuer exemption restricted to secondary trading transactions, making it unavailable for issuers selling newly issued securities.

 

Most of the accepted manuals are those published by Standard and Poor’s, Moody’s Investor Service, Fitch’s Investment Service, and Best’s Insurance Reports, and many states expressly recognize these manuals. A smaller number of states declare that they “recognize securities manuals” but do not specify the recognized manuals. The following states do not have any provisions and therefore do not expressly recognize the manual exemption: Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Montana, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont and Wisconsin.

ITEM 2. FINANCIAL INFORMATION

 

Management’s Plan of Operation

 

The following discussion contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations or forecasts of future events. You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They use of words such as “anticipate”, “estimate”, “expect”, “project”, “intend”, “plan”, “believe”, and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance. From time to time, we also may provide forward- looking statements in other materials we release to the public.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

To the shareholders and the board of directors of CMG Holdings Group, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of CMG Holdings Group, Inc. as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the related statements of operations, stockholders' equity (deficit), and cash flows for the years then ended, 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 2018, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

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

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

Our 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.

CMG HOLDINGS GROUP, INC.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

 

1.Nature of Operations andContinuanceof Business

 

Creative Management Group, Inc. was formed in Delaware on August 13, 2002 as a limited liability company named Creative Management Group, LLC. On August 7, 2007, this entity converted to a corporation. The Company is a sports, entertainment, marketing and management company providing event management implementation, sponsorships, licensing and broadcast, production and syndication.

 

On February 20, 2008, Creative Management Group, Inc. formed CMG Acquisitions, Inc., a Delaware company, for the purpose of acquiring companies and expansion strategies. On February 20, 2008, Creative Management Group, Inc. acquired 92.6% of Pebble Beach Enterprises, Inc. (a publicly traded company) and changed the name to CMG Holdings Group, Inc. (“the Company”). The purpose of the acquisition was to effect a reverse merger with Pebble Beach Enterprises, Inc. at a later date. On May 27, 2008, PebbleBeachentered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization with its controlling shareholder, Creative Management Group, Inc., a privately held Delaware corporation. Upon closing the eighty shareholders of Creative Management Group delivered all their equity interests in Creative Management Group to Pebble Beach in exchange for shares of common stock in Pebble Beach owned by Creative Management Group, as a result of which Creative Management Group became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pebble Beach. The shareholders of Creative Management Group received one share of Pebble Beach’s common stock previously owned by Creative Management Group for each issued and outstanding common share owned of Creative Management Group. As a result, the 22,135,148 shares of Pebble Beach that were issued and previously owned by Creative Management Group, are now owned directly by its shareholders. The 22,135,148 shares of Creative Management Group previously owned by its shareholders are now owned by Pebble Beach, thereby making Creative Management Group a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pebble Beach. Pebble Beach did not issue any new shares as part of the Reorganization. The transaction was accounted for as a reverse merger and recapitalization whereby Creative Management Group is the accounting acquirer. Pebble Beach was renamed CMG Holdings Group, Inc.

 

On April 1, 2009, the Company, through a newly formed subsidiary CMGO Capital, Inc., a Nevada corporation, completed the acquisition of XA, The Experiential Agency, Inc. On March 31, 2010, the Company and AudioEye, Inc. (“AudioEye”) completed a Stock Purchase Agreement under which the Company acquired all the capital stock of AudioEye. On June 22, 2011 the Company entered into a Master Agreement subject to shareholder approval and closing conditions with AudioEye Acquisition Corp., a Nevada corporation where the shareholders of AudioEye Acquisition Corp. exchanged 100% of the stock in AudioEye Acquisition Corp for 80% of the capital stock of AudioEye. The Company retained 15% of AudioEye subject to transfer restrictions in accordance with the Master Agreement; in October 2012, the Company distributed to its shareholders, in a dividend, 5% ofthecapital stock of AudioEye in accordance with provisions of the Master Agreement.

 

On March 28, 2014, CMG Holdings Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “CMG”), completed its acquisition of 100% of the shares of Good Gaming, Inc. (“GGI”) by entering into a Share Exchange Agreement (the “SEA”) with BMB Financial, Inc. and Jackie Beckford, shareholders of GGI. The sole owner of BMB Financial, Inc. is also the sole owner of Infinite Alpha, Inc. which provides consulting services to CMG. Pursuant to the SEA, the Company received 100% of the shares of GGI in exchange for 5,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, $33,000 in equipment and consultant compensation and a commitment to pay $200,000 in development costs.

2.Summary of Significant AccountingPolicies

 

a)Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

 

These consolidated financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") and are expressed in US dollars. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Ship Ahoy LLC. All intercompany transactions have beeneliminated. The Company's fiscalyear-endis December 31.

 

b)Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity withgenerallyaccepted accounting principles in theUnitedStates requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and li abilities 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 period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptionsrelatedto the recoverability of its long-lived assets, stock-basedcompensation,and deferredincometaxasset valuationallowances.TheCompany basesitsestimatesandassumptions 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 values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company's estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.

 

c)Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

TheCompany considers all highly liquid instruments with maturity of three months or less at the time of issuance to be cash equivalents. As of December 31, 20 19 and 2018,the Company had no cash equivalents.

 

d)Basic and Diluted Net Loss Per Share

 

The Company computes net loss per share in accordance with ASC 260,Earnings Per Share, which requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) on the face of the income statement. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net loss available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock usingtheif-converted method. In computing Diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock

options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

e)Financial Instruments

 

ASC 820,'"FairValue Measurements”,requiresanentitytomaximizetheuse of observableinputsand minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fairvalue. It establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument's categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. It prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1

 

Level 1 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2

 

Level 2 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability such as quoted prices forsimilarassets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identic al assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which significant inputs areobservable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated by, observable marketdata.

 

' Level 3

 

Level 3 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

The Company's financial instruments consist principally of cash, accounts payable, and amounts due to relatedparties.Pursuant to ASC 820, the fair value of our cash is determined based on "LevelI"inputs, which consist of quoted prices in active markets for identical assets. We believe that the recorded values of all our other financial instruments approximate their currentfairvalues because of their nature and respective maturity dates or durations.

 

f)       Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are comprised of a vehicle and is amortized on a straight-line basis over an expected useful life of three years. Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. The land is not depreciated.

 

g)Impairment of Long-lived Assets

 

The Company evaluates the recoverability of long-lived assets and the related estimated remaining lives at each balance sheet date. The Company records an impairment or change in useful life whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable or the useful life has changed.

2.Summary of Significant AccountingPolicies (Continued)

  

h)Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue is recognized when a customer obtains control of promised goods or services and is recognized in an amount that reflects the consideration that an entity expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. In addition, the standard requires disclosure of the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. The amount of revenue that is recorded reflects the consideration that the Company expects to receive in exchange for those services. The Company applies the following five-step model in order to determine this amount: (i) identification of the promised services in the contract; (ii) determination of whether the promised services are performance obligations, including whether they are distinct in the context of the contract; (iii) measurement of the transaction price, including the constraint on variable consideration; (iv) allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations; and (v) recognition of revenue when (or as) the Company satisfies each performance obligation.

 

The Company only applies the five-step model to contracts when it is probable that the entity will collect the consideration it is entitled to in exchange for the services it transfers to the customer. Once a contract is determined to be within the scope of ASC 606 at contract inception, the Company reviews the contract to determine which performance obligations the Company must deliver and which of these performance obligations are distinct. The Company recognizes as revenues the amount of the transaction price that is allocated to the respective performance obligation when the performance obligation is satisfied or as it is satisfied. Generally, the Company’s performance obligations are transferred to customers at a point in time, typically upon delivery.

 

The Company generates revenues through event management implementation, sponsorships, licensing and broadcast, production and syndication.

 

i)Cost of Services

 

Cost of services Consist of marketing and management expenses. The marketing expenses are for the marketing of an event prior to the event taking place.

 

j)General and Administrative Expense

 

General and administrative expense are the overhead expense to maintain the Company.

 

k)Reclassification

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current presentation.

 

l)Recently issued accounting pronouncements

 

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 pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations except as noted below:

  

FASB ASU 2017-01, Clarifying the Definition of a Business (Topic 805) – In January 2017, the FASB issued 2017-01. The new guidance that changes the definition of a business to assist entities with evaluating when a set of transferred assets and activities is a business. The guidance requires an entity to evaluate if substantially all of the fair value of the gross assets acquired is concentrated in a single identifiable asset or a group of similar identifiable assets; if so, the set of transferred assets and activities is not a business. The guidance also requires a business to include at least one substantive process and narrows the definition of outputs by more closely aligning it with how outputs are described in ASC 606. The ASU is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and for interim periods within those years. Adoption of this ASU did not have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated results of operations, cash flows and financial position.

2.Summary of Significant AccountingPolicies (Continued)

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740), which enhances and simplifies various aspects of the income tax accounting guidance, including requirements such as tax basis step-up in goodwill obtained in a transaction that is not a business combination, ownership changes in investments, and interim-period accounting for enacted changes in tax law. The amendment will be effective for public companies with fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020; early adoption is permitted. The Company is evaluating the impact of this amendment on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-02, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326) and Leases (Topic 842) - Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 119 and Update to SEC Section on Effective Date Related to Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which amends the effective date of the original pronouncement for smaller reporting companies. ASU 2016-13 and its amendments will be effective for the Company for interim and annual periods in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. The Company believes the adoption will modify the way the Company analyzes financial instruments, but it does not anticipate a material impact on results of operations. The Company is in the process of determining the effects adoption will have on its consolidated financial statements.

 

The Company 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.

 

3.Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable consist of invoices for events that occurred prior to year end that the payments were received in the following year. The Balance of accounts receivable at December 31, 2019 and 2018 were $40,513 and $13,693, respectively.

 

4.Loan Receivable

 

On November 15, 2019 the company entered into an agreement to a line of credit (LOC) with Pristec America Inc. (Pristec). The LOC was for $75,000. As of December 31, 2019, the Company had loaned to Pristec $67,500 at an interest rate of 12%, the loan matures in twelve (12) months. Pristec is a late stage technology company that has 108 worldwide patents for the cold cracking of crude oil and other oil products. The Company has been granted the right to convert this loan into 75 shares of stock at price of $1000. At the discretion of the Company, the Company has the option of entering into a revenue sharing agreement with Pristec.

 

5.Accounts Payable

Accounts payable consist of expenses incurred during the year that had not yet been paid. The balance of accounts payable at December 31, 2019 is $74,500. The balance of accounts payable at December 31, 2018 consisted of accounts from 2015 that were from a prior subsidiary that was disposed of.
