These factors may include inaccurate assumptions and a broad variety of other risks and uncertainties, including some that are known and some that are not. No forward looking statement can be guaranteed and actual future results may vary materially.

PART I

 

ITEM 1. BUSINESS.

 

General

 

The Company was incorporated on November 3, 2008 under the laws of the State of Nevada, to engage in certain business services. Our goal is to become a leading tournament gaming provider as well as an online destination, targeting over 250 million esports players and participants worldwide that want to compete at the high school or college level. We are a developmental stage business, have generated limited revenues to date and have a history of operating losses.

 

The Good Gaming platform was established in early 2014 by its founding members who recognized the need that millions of gamers worldwide desired to play games at competitive levels. The founders recognized that there was no structure or organization on a large scale for amateur gamers while professional esports was quickly establishing itself.

 

Good Gaming is effectively building the business infrastructure for the rapidly growing esports industry, similar to the high school and college athletic industry. Good Gaming is designed to be the gateway for amateur esports athletes to compete at the semi-professional level, improve their gaming skills, and interact with veteran gamers globally in a destination site and social networking framework.

 

Good Gaming differs from the professional level of the esports industry by focusing on more than approximately 250 million gamers that fall below the professional level but are above the casual level, classified as “amateurs.” Good Gaming distinguishes itself from its direct and indirect competitors by being the first company to offer multi-game, multi-console services at the amateur esports level. The Company is not exclusive to any particular hardware or software vendor.

 

On May 4, 2016, the Company announced that it had completed its first closed public beta testing of their 2.0 tournament platform to determine the functionality, speed, ease of use, and accuracy of the system and are preparing to enter into full-blown production.

 

On February 18, 2016, the Company, formerly HDS International Corp., acquired the assets of Good Gaming, Inc. from CMG Holdings Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CMGO). On that date, the Company’s former CEO, Paul Rauner, resigned. The Company appointed Vikram Grover to the positions of CEO and Director of the board of directors (the “Board”). Vikram Grover is a former Wall Street analyst and investment banker with more than 20 years of experience in telecommunications, media and technology. In addition, David Dorwart was elected by the majority shareholders to the Company’s Board. Mr. Dorwart is the Co-Founder and Chairman of Assist Wireless, Inc., a provider of lifeline wireless services to tens of thousands of subscribers primarily in the Midwest.

On June 27, 2017 the Board of Directors of the Company appointed David B. Dorwart, 59 years old, as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. On June 21, 2017, Mr. Dorwart was appointed to serve as the Chairman of the Board of Directors. David B. Dorwart, Chairman and CEO of Good Gaming, Inc., brings over 31 years of start-up entrepreneurism and executive level management to the Company. Mr. Dorwart was a CoFounder and CEO of dPi Teleconnect, a prepaid wireless provider, for 10 years. During his tenure, he grew the company from a start-up to $75 million in revenues before selling the company. Over the last 9 years, he has been involved with several other successful projects including Assist Wireless, Brooklet Energy Distribution, PayGo Distributors and Britton & Associates. He is currently the Chairman and CoFounder of ViaOne Services, a company which specializes in wireless communications and provides intricate multi-faceted services for start-up companies utilizing industry experts. By virtue of their ownership of this Series C Preferred Stock, ViaOne is the Company’s principal stockholder.

 

On June 27, 2017, the Company also bolstered its Board of Directors with executive level professionals by adding two seasoned individuals who specialize in organization and finance as well as the branding and marketing of established and emerging organizations which are poised to show significant growth.

 

Domenic Fontana, age 37, is currently Sr. Vice President of ViaOne Services and a new board member. He is an experienced CPA and financial executive who has worked in progressively more advanced executive roles throughout his career. Having worked at Verizon, Ebay and now ViaOne Services over the last 13 years, he has developed intimate and extensive knowledge of executive level management and the telecommunications industry. He has worked in all aspects of Finance, Accounting, Treasury, and Operations.

 

Jordan Majkszak Axt, a new board member, age 36, is a results-producing marketing professional with over 14 years of experience successfully developing marketing and branding strategies. He has been consistently noted by executives, colleagues, and journalists for his specific expertise in bringing products and services online with a comprehensive digital go-to-market strategy. He has previously held executive level positions as Director of Marketing for ProfitPoint Inc. and Clutch Holdings LLC. He is currently Sr. Director of Marketing of ViaOne Services where he develops all marketing and customer acquisition strategies for 14 consumer facing brands.

 

On July 10, 2017, the Company’s Board of Directors elected David Dorwart its CEO. Additionally, the Board of Directors approved Domenic Fontana and Jordan Axt to the Company’s Board of Directors.

 

On August 8, 2017, the board of directors of the Company accepted Vikram Grover’s resignation as the Treasurer of the Company and as a member of the Board, effective immediately.

 

On August 8, 2017, the Board of the Company accepted Barbara Laken’s resignation as the Secretary of the Company and as a member on the Board, effective immediately.

 

On August 9, 2017, the Company announced a strategic review of its business, which prompted improvements to its business model and a reduction in expenses designed to accelerate its move to free cash flow generation.

 

On August 29, 2017, Eric Brown became the Chief Operating Officer.

 

In September of 2017, the Company began focusing on its Minecraft server by enhancing the development staff and launched an offering of microtransactions after it saw the opportunity to generate revenue without adding a great deal of overhead. The initial offering of microtransactions exceeded revenue expectations and the Company has continued to expand the Minecraft server offerings. The Company also began pursuing the acquisition of additional Minecraft servers that were already established to begin scaling this effort.

In December of 2017, the Company began exploring potential partnerships with various franchise opportunities related to both LAN centers and Virtual Reality centers. Financial analysis and research on these opportunities is ongoing.

 

Technology

 

In 2016, the Company completed its 2.0 tournament platform and thereafter ran dozens of robotic internal test tournaments and held numerous free-to-play tournaments on large scales with its partner The Syndicate, the owner of the world’s longest running online gaming guild that has 1,200 members worldwide. Good Gaming conducted two closed public beta tournaments of hundreds of participants in May 2016 in order to fully vet the system. After making roughly 100 fixes and changes to the system, it now runs smoothly. The system is designed to scale to 512,000 concurrent competitors. The Company has updated the system to handle team tournaments, which will further expand its opportunity to popular titles that have tens of millions of active players and has recently launched titles that have the potential for cross-platform play among Gaming PC, Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation.

 

In 2017, the Company ran hundreds of tournaments on a regular basis with a dedicated customer base of over 30,000 members. Additionally, the Company expanded its website by offering content relevant to the member base with information relating to game play strategy and game news. This generated nearly 100,000 unique visits per month. In an effort to monetize that traffic, the Company employed the use of Google display advertising and tested a subscription model. After careful evaluation of the Company’s strategy, management decided to move away from free tournaments and custom content and focus on growing and monetizing our Minecraft server, which has grown substantially in popularity. This decision was a result of comprehensive competitive analysis and evaluations made in how the esports industry was shifting in its space. Tournaments and custom content are currently suspended while the Company grows revenue and focuses on expanding its efforts with Minecraft. The Company is also aggressively evaluating several business models and acquisition opportunities to resume its previous success as it is related to tournaments.

 

Business Strategy

 

In the past, our management team’s strategy was to be a full-service company providing best in class tournaments, the best platform on which they are played, and content that is all about the esports world. We have looked at this strategy and have changed the way we view our business.

 

It’s our ambition and strategy to be great at providing a place for amateurs to play. By focusing on what the gaming universe is lacking, it allows us to focus on the promotion of teams, leagues and competition. We will continue with this strategy because over this past year, we have been successful in managing the tournaments. We intend to begin with local servers and expand organically from there. We recognize there are millions of players who desire to compete within the gaming community.

 

Minecraft is another business strategy. We have a well-established server and will continue to devote resources to developing and acquiring other Minecraft assets. We feel that we have learned how to monetize this and will be able to continue to grow and have it been a meaningful part of our business strategy.

 

In our evaluation of our current business model, we have decided not to pursue the operation as a tournament platform. We feel there are too many great platforms that allow complete integration via APIs to run our tournaments. These companies have spent and continued spending millions of dollars establishing their platforms. It’s what they do very well and they rely on companies such as Good Gaming to run and host tournaments.

 

5
 

 

We previously developed our own code and have a platform that really is quite good to handle tournaments but needs some improvement to be commercially ready. In fact, it’s this platform that we have used up to now to run our Hearthstone tournaments. Although it is functional, the challenge is that it costs too much capital to maintain and improve the platform. At this this point, it’s an asset we have and we may try to monetize this at some point.

 

Insurance Policies

 

We do not currently maintain any insurance but are in the process of obtaining the appropriate insurance to support our business operations.

 

Employees

 

We have no employees and five contractors working on the Good Gaming project. This group is made up of programmers, tournament administrators, and social media experts. Pursuant to our Management Services Agreement with ViaOne Services LLC, certain employees of ViaOne are deemed to be consultants of the Company. As the process matures, we plan to hire most of these people and additional staff as full-time employees of the Company.

Our executive offices are located at 415 McFarlan Rd, Suite 108, Kennett Square, PA 19501. Our telephone number is (888) 295-7279.

The Company has retained counsel to represent it on this matter and responded with affirmative defenses in the Supreme Court of New York.

The original plan filed on July 18, 2012 is still valid but the Company will not issue any more securities under the Plan as we intend to adopt a new plan.

 

Equity Compensation Plan

 

We do not have any other equity compensation plan at this time.

Penny Stock Regulations and Restrictions on Marketability

 

The SEC has adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in penny stocks. Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a market price of less than $5. Securities are registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system which provides the current price and volume information. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC, that: (a) contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading, (b) contains a description of the broker’s or dealer’s duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to a violation of such duties or other requirements of the securities laws, (c) contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and the significance of the spread between the bid and ask price, (d) contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions, (e) defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks, and (f) contains such other information and is in such form, including language, type size and format, as the SEC shall require by rule or regulation.

 

The broker-dealer also must provide, prior to effecting any transaction in a penny stock, the customer with (a) bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, (b) the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction, (c) the number of shares to which such bid and ask prices apply, or other comparable information relating to the depth and liquidity of the market for such stock, and (d) a monthly account statement showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account.

 

In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written acknowledgment of the receipt of a risk disclosure statement, a written agreement as to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitability statement.

 

These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity for our common stock. Therefore, stockholders may have difficulty selling their shares of our common stock.

 

Common Stock

 

Our Articles of Incorporation authorize us to issue up to 100,000,000 shares of common stock, $0.001 par value. Each holder of our common stock is entitled to one (1) vote for each share held of record on all voting matters we present for a vote of stockholders, including the election of directors. Holders of common stock have no cumulative voting rights or preemptive rights to purchase or subscribe for any stock or other securities, and there are no conversion rights or redemption or sinking fund provisions with respect to our common stock. All shares of our common stock are entitled to share equally in dividends from sources legally available when, and if, declared by our Board of Directors.

 

Our Board of Directors is authorized to issue additional shares of common stock not to exceed the amount authorized by the Articles of Incorporation, on such terms and conditions and for such consideration as the Board may deem appropriate without further stockholder action.

 

In the event of our liquidation or dissolution, all shares of our common stock are entitled to share equally in our assets available for distribution to stockholders. However, the rights, preferences and privileges of the holders of our common stock are subject to, and may be adversely affected by, the rights of the holders of shares of preferred stock that have been issued or shares of preferred stock that our Board of Directors may decide to issue in the future.

 

9
 

 

Preferred Stock

 

Our Articles of Incorporation authorize us to issue up to 2,500,350 shares of preferred stock, $0.001 par value. Of the 2,500,000 authorized shares of preferred stock, the total number of shares of Class A Preferred Shares the Corporation shall have the authority to issue is Two-Hundred -Forty-Nine Thousand-Nine-Hundred-Ninety-Nine (249,999), with a stated par value of $0.001 per share, the total number of shares of Class B Preferred Shares the Company shall have the authority to issue is Two-Hundred Thousand (200,000), with a stated par value of $0.001 per share, the total number of shares of Class C Preferred Shares the Company shall have the authority to issue is One (1), with a stated par value of $0.001 per share, and the total number of shares of Class D Preferred Shares the Company shall have the authority to issue is Three Hundred and Fifty (350), with a stated par value of $0.001 per share. Our Board of Directors is authorized, without further action by the shareholders, to issue shares of preferred stock and to fix the designations, number, rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions thereof, including dividend rights, conversion rights, voting rights, terms of redemption, liquidation preferences and sinking fund terms. We believe that the Board of Directors’ power to set the terms of, and our ability to issue, preferred stock will provide flexibility in connection with possible financing or acquisition transactions in the future. The issuance of preferred stock, however, could adversely affect the voting power of holders of common stock and decrease the amount of any liquidation distribution to such holders. The presence of outstanding preferred stock could also have the effect of delaying, deterring or preventing a change in control of our Company.

 

As of March 27, 2018, we had 7,500 shares of our Class A preferred stock issued and outstanding, 106,511 shares of Class B preferred stock issued and outstanding, 1 shares of our Class C Preferred Stock issued and outstanding, and 210 shares of our Class D Preferred Stock issued and outstanding.

 

The 7,500 issued and outstanding shares of Class A Preferred Stock are convertible into shares of common stock at a rate of 20 common shares for each Class A Preferred Share. The 106,511 issued and outstanding shares of Class B Preferred Stock are convertible into shares of common stock at a rate of 200 common shares for each one Class B Preferred Share. Of the issued and outstanding shares of Class B Preferred Stock, 85,395 shares are owned by CMG Holdings Group, Inc. If all of our Class A Preferred Stock and Class B Preferred Stock are converted into shares of common stock, the number of issued and outstanding shares of our common stock increased to 21,452,200 shares.

 

The 210 issued and outstanding shares of Class D Preferred Stock are convertible into shares of common stock at a rate of 125% of the conversion amount at a price that is the lower of 110% of the volume weighted average prices (“VWAP”) of the common stock on the issuance date of the preferred stock, the VWAP of the common stock on the conversion date, or the VWAP of the common stock on the date prior to the conversion date. The shares of Class D Preferred Stock are convertible beginning six months from issuance date of the preferred stock. At December 31, 2017, no shares of Class D Preferred Stock were eligible to be converted to common stock. The shares of Class D Preferred Stock are entitled to cumulative dividends at 5%.

 

Options

 

We have not issued and do not have outstanding any options to purchase shares of our common stock. We have 100,000 warrants with an exercise price of $1.00 per share outstanding at December 31, 2017 owned by HGT Capital LLC.

 

Registration Rights

 

As of December 31, 2017, there are no other outstanding registration rights or similar agreements.

As part of the asset purchase agreement between HDS International Corp. and CMG Holdings Group, Inc., SirenGPS was issued a $60,000 0% interest convertible debenture that matured in August 2017 and is currently in default. At any time beginning seven months after the issuance date of the Note (i.e., August 17, 2016), the holder can convert the outstanding Principal Amount and unpaid interest accrued under this Note in whole or in part, subject to limitations on percentage of ownership of the common stock of the Company at 9.99% at any given time and a maximum dollar amount of conversion of the note into common stock of $5,000.00 of principal during any 30-day period. The conversion price is for each share of Common Stock equal to 50% of the average of the three lowest closing bid prices of the Common Stock as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTCQB exchange which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the Common Stock may be traded in the future, for the twenty prior trading days including the day upon which the notice of conversion is received by the Company.

Related Party Transactions

 

On or around April 7, 2016, Silver Linings Management LLC, which is owned by the Company’s CEO, David Dorwart, funded the Company in an amount of $13,439.50 in the form of convertible debentures secured by certain high-powered gaming machines purchased from XIDAX. Such note bears an interest rate of 10% per annum payable in cash or kind at the option of the Company, matures on April 1, 2018, and is convertible into Series B Preferred shares at the option of the holder at any time as long as all or part of the convertible debentures is outstanding.

 

On November 30, 2016, ViaOne Services, LLC (“ViaOne”) purchased a Secured Promissory Note equal to a maximum initial principal amount of $150,000 issued by the Company to ViaOne. As additional advances were made by ViaOne to the Company, the principal amount of the Note was increased to $225,000 and $363,000 by amendments dated January 31, 2017 and March 1,2017, respectively.

 

On May 5, 2017, ViaOne delivered a default notice to the Company pursuant to Section 6 of the Note Purchase Agreement but has subsequently extended the due date and has increased the funding up to One Million ($1,000,000) dollars. After giving the Company a fifteen (15) day notice period to cure the default under the Stock Pledge Agreement, dated November 30, 2016, entered by and among the Company, CMG and ViaOne (“Pledge Agreement”), ViaOne took possession of the Series C Stock, which was subject of the Pledge Agreement.

As of December 31, 2017, ViaOne provided additional funding in accordance with the extension of the Note Purchase Agreement on an as-needed basis and will continue to provide funding until one million dollars has been exhausted. As of March 27, 2018, the total amount we owed to ViaOne is $838,796.

 

On January 8, 2018, the Company executed the fourth amendment (the “Amendment”) to its Secured Promissory Note (the “Note”) which was originally issued to ViaOne on November 30, 2016. The Amendment includes a provision, whereby ViaOne would have the opportunity to convert all or part of the Note into common stock of the Company at the Conversion Rate as defined in the following formula:

 

Conversion Rate = ConversionAmount x125%

Conversion Price

 

Conversion Amount means, with respect to the Note, the dollar amount of the Note that is being converted into shares of the Company’s Common Stock. “Conversion Price” means, with respect to the Note, the lower of (i) $0.05 per share; or (ii) the lower of the VWAP of the Common Stock on the Trading Day prior to the Conversion Date or the VWAP of the Common Stock on the Conversion Date, subject to changes as set forth in the Amendment. The Note now effectively has the same terms as the Company’s Series D Preferred Stock.

 

The Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer is the Chairman of ViaOne.

 

Shares Eligible for Future Sale

 

As of March 27, 2018, we had 23,683,195 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding, a breakdown of which follows:

 

8,041,395 are freely tradable without restrictions (commonly referred to as the “public float”)

 

15,641,800 are currently subject to the restrictions and sale limitations imposed by Rule 144.

 

From time to time, certain of our stockholders may be eligible to sell some or all of their restricted shares of our common stock by means of ordinary brokerage transactions in the open market pursuant to Rule 144, promulgated under the Securities Act, subject to certain volume restrictions and restrictions on the manner of sale. In general, pursuant to Rule 144, non-affiliate stockholders may sell freely after six months subject only to the current public information requirement. Affiliates may sell after six months subject to the Rule 144 volume, manner of sale, current public information and notice requirements.

The eventual availability for sale of substantial amounts of our common stock under Rule 144 could adversely affect prevailing market prices for our securities and cause you to lose most, if not all, of your investment in our business.

ITEM 6. Selected Financial Data

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information under this item.

 

ITEM 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis

 

Our auditors have issued a going concern opinion on the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2017. This means that our auditors believe there is substantial doubt that we can continue as an ongoing business for the next twelve months from the date of issuance of these financial statements unless we obtain additional capital to pay our bills. This is because we have generated little revenue although revenue is anticipated as we have completed the development of our website, sourced out suppliers for products to sell and sourced out customers to buy our products. Accordingly, we must raise cash from sources other than operations. Our only other source for cash at this time is investments by others in our company and the revenue we generate from the sales of our products. We must raise cash to continue our project and build our operations.

Plan of Operation – Milestones

 

We are at the early stage of our new business operations. Over the next twelve months, our primary target milestones include:

 

1Continue to achieve substantial growth within our Minecraft division. This is a profitable cost center for us and we expect the continued growth of our existing server, good-gaming.com as well as the re-launch of our acquired servers minecade.com and olimpocraft.com which we expect will contribute substantially to our profitability. Additionally, we will look to expand this division into other avenues.
  
2Launch an in-person gaming product. We expect to launch this product in the second quarter of 2018 and anticipate substantial growth by the end of the year.
  
3Continue to evaluate opportunities which have synergies to our existing business line.
  
4Anticipate sustainable financial profitability this year.

 

Limited operating history and need for additional capital

 

There is limited historical financial information about us upon which to base an evaluation of our performance relating to our new business direction. We have generated little revenue. We cannot guarantee we will be successful in our business operations. Our business is subject to risks inherent in the establishment of a new business enterprise, including limited capital resources and possible cost overruns due to price and cost increases in services and products.

Current Assets $61,737  $58,400

Working Capital (Deficit) $(1,649,751) $(419,448)

 Operating Revenues

 

We have generated $38,090 in revenue in 2017 and $2,000 in revenue in the fiscal year of 2016, which reflects an increase of $36,090 or 100%.

 

 Operating Expenses and Net Loss

 

Operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2017 were $988,225 compared with $618,476 for the year ended December 31, 2016. The increase in operating expenses was attributed to an increase in depreciation and amortization of assets in 2017 and contract labor and professional fees for day to day operations.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company recorded a net loss of $1,379,647 compared with a net loss of $491,300 for the year ended December 31, 2016. The increase in net loss was attributed to the increased operating loss and the change in value of the Company’s derivative liabilities.

 

 Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of December 31, 2017, the Company’s cash balance consisted of $61,037 compared to cash balance of $47,900 as of December 31, 2016. The increase in the cash balance was attributed to the financing that we received for day-to-day activities. As of December 31, 2017, the Company had $821,897 in assets compared to total assets of $1,059,824 as at December 31, 2016. The decrease in assets was attributable to the amortization of the assets purchased during the acquisition of Good Gaming, Inc.

 

As of December 31, 2017, the Company had total liabilities of $1,711,488 compared with total liabilities of $641,288 as of December 31, 2016. The increase in liabilities was attributable to increase in financing and in derivative liabilities.

 

As of December 31, 2017, the Company has a working capital deficit of $1,649,751 compared with a working capital deficit of $419,448 as of December 31, 2016 with the increase in the working capital deficit attributed to an increase in financing the Company received for day to day operating costs.

 

Cash flow from Operating Activities

 

During the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company used $797,107 of cash for operating activities compared to the use of cash in an amount of $317,225 for operating activities during the year ended December 31, 2016. The increase in the use of cash for operating activities was attributed to hiring additional contract labor and increase spending in professional fees for compliance related requirements.

 

Cash flow from Investing Activities

 

During the years ended December 31, 2017, the Company had $1,552 in cash used in investing activities compared to $13,440 for the year ended December 31, 2016. The decrease was due to the Company purchasing one computer in 2017.

 

Cash flow from Financing Activities

 

During the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company received $811,796 of proceeds from financing activities compared to $378,565 during the year ended December 31, 2016. The increase in proceeds from financing activities was due to receiving proceeds from the sale of preferred stock and convertible debentures.

 

15
 

 

Going Concern

 

We have not attained profitable operations and are dependent upon obtaining financing to pursue any extensive acquisitions and activities. For these reasons, our auditors stated in their report on our audited financial statements that they have substantial doubt that we will be able to continue as a going concern for a period of one year from the issuance of these financial statements without further financing.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no significant off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to stockholders.

 

Future Financings

 

We will continue to rely on equity sales of our preferred shares in order to continue to fund our business operations. Issuances of additional shares will result in dilution to existing stockholders.

 

There is no assurance that we will achieve any additional sales of the equity securities or arrange for debt or other financing to fund our operations and other activities.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our financial statements and accompanying notes have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles applied on a consistent basis. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles which requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods.

 

We regularly evaluate the accounting policies and estimates that we use to prepare our consolidated financial statements. Management’s estimates are based on historical experience, on information from third party professionals, and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the facts and circumstances. Actual results could differ from those estimates made by management.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

We have implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect. These pronouncements did not have any material impact on the financial statements unless otherwise disclosed, and we do 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.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Shareholders and

Board of Directors of Good Gaming, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

I have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Good Gaming, Inc. (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended December 31, 2017, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. My responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on my audit. In my opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended December 31, 2017, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Basis of Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. My responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on my audits. I am a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (“PCAOB”) and am required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

I conducted my audits in accordance with standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that I plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. The Company is not required to have, nor was I engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of my audits I am 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, I express no such opinion.

 

My audits 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. My audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. I believe that my audits provide a reasonable basis for my opinion.

Substantial Doubt About the Company’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern

 

As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company’s continuing operating losses, working capital deficiency and accumulated deficit raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern for a period of one year from the issuance of the financial statements. Management’s plans are also described in Note 1. The financial statements do not include adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Good Gaming, Inc.

Notes to the Financial Statements

(expressed in U.S. dollars)

 

1.Nature of Operations and Continuance of Business

 

Good Gaming, Inc. (Formerly HDS International Corp.) (the “Company”) was incorporated on November 3, 2008 under the laws of the State of Nevada. The Company is a leading tournament gaming platform and online destination targeting over 250 million e-sports players and participants worldwide that want to compete at the high school or college level. A substantial portion of the Company’s activities has involved developing a business plan and establishing contacts and visibility in the marketplace and the Company has not generated any substantial revenue to date.

 

Going Concern

 

These financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies that the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has generated minimal revenues to date and has never paid any dividends and is unlikely to pay dividends or generate significant earnings in the immediate or foreseeable future. As of December 31, 2017, the Company had a working capital deficiency of $1,649,751 and an accumulated deficit of $4,889,020. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from its shareholders, the ability to raise equity or debt financing, and the attainment of profitable operations from the Company’s future business. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of one year from the issuance of these financial statements. These financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

23

 

 

Reverse Stock Split

 

On February 17, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Company approved a reverse split of its’ common and preferred shares on a 1 for 1,000 basis. The Articles of Incorporation were amended decreasing the authorized common shares from 2,000,000,000 to 100,000,000 and decreasing the authorized preferred shares from 450,000,000 to 2,250,000. A special meeting of the Company’s shareholders was not required since written consent was obtained by the stockholders who held the majority of the outstanding voting stock. The Reverse Stock Split became effective on June 14, 2017.

 

All references in this Annual Report regarding the number of preferred and common shares, price per share and weighted average shares of common stock have been adjusted to reflect the Reverse Stock Split on a retroactive basis for all prior periods presented, unless otherwise noted, including reclassifying an amount equal to the reduction in par value of common and preferred stock to additional paid-in capital.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to the fair values of convertible debentures, derivative liability, stock-based compensation, and deferred income tax asset valuation allowances. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying 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.

 

Certain reclassifications have been made to prior-year amounts to conform to the current period presentation.

 

24

 

 

Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with maturity of three months or less at the time of issuance to be cash equivalents. Amounts receivable from credit card processors are also considered cash equivalents because they are both short-term and highly liquid in nature.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets are carried at the purchased cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization is computed over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets, generally five years.

 

2.Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

 Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

Long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangible assets to be held and used are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstance indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable. Determination of recoverability is based on an estimate of undiscounted future cash flows resulting from the use of the asset and its eventual disposition. Measurement of an impairment loss for long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangible assets that management expects to hold and use is based on the fair value of the asset. Long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangible assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell.

 Beneficial Conversion Features

From time to time, the Company may issue convertible notes that may contain an embedded beneficial conversion feature. A beneficial conversion feature exists on the date a convertible note is issued when the fair value of the underlying common stock to which the note is convertible into is in excess of the remaining unallocated proceeds of the note after first considering the allocation of a portion of the note proceeds to the fair value of the warrants, if related warrants have been granted. The intrinsic value of the beneficial conversion feature is recorded as a debt discount with a corresponding amount to additional paid in capital. The debt discount is amortized to interest expense over the life of the note using the effective interest method.

 Derivative Liability

From time to time, the Company may issue equity instruments that may contain an embedded derivative instrument which may result in a derivative liability. A derivative liability exists on the date the equity instrument is issued when there is a contingent exercise provision. The derivative liability is records at is fair value calculated by using an option pricing model. The fair value of the derivative liability is then calculated on each balance sheet date with the corresponding gains and losses recorded in the statement of operations.

25

 

 

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 using the if-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. At December 31, 2017, the Company had 8,779,119 (2016 – 90,000,000) potentially dilutive shares from outstanding convertible debentures.

Income Taxes

Potential benefits of income tax losses are not recognized in the accounts until realization is more likely than not. Pursuant to ASC 740, the Company is required to compute tax asset benefits for net operating losses carried forward. The potential benefits of net operating losses have not been recognized in these financial statements because the Company cannot be assured it is more likely than not it will utilize the net operating losses carried forward in future years. Unrecognized tax positions, if ever recognized in the financial statements, are recorded in the statement of operations as part of the income tax provision. Our policy is to recognize interest and penalties accrued on uncertain tax positions, if any, as part of the income tax provision. The Company has no liabilities for uncertain tax positions. Unrecognized tax positions, if ever recognized in the financial statements, are recorded in the statement of operations as part of the income tax provision. The Company’s policy is to recognize interest and penalties accrued on uncertain tax positions, if any, as part of the income tax provision. The Company has no liabilities for uncertain tax positions.

On December 22, 2017, tax reform legislation known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “U.S. Tax Reform Act”) was enacted in the United States. The U.S. Tax Reform Act, among other things, reduced the U.S. corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% beginning in 2018. On December 22, 2017, the SEC staff issued Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 (“SAB 118”), which provides guidance on how to account for the effects of the U.S. Tax Reform Act under ASC 740.

Financial Instruments

 

ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements” and ASC 825, Financial Instruments, requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. 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 is categorized 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:

 

2.Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

Financial Instruments (continued)

 

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 for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated by, observable market data.

 

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.

 

Assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis were presented on the Company’s balance sheet as at December 31, 2017 and 2016 as follows:

 

 

Description Fair Value Measurements at December 31, 2017 Using Fair Value Hierarchy 
  Total   Level 1   Level 2   Level 3 
Derivative liability $570,643  $-  $-  $570,643 
Total $570,643  $-  $-  $570,643

Description Fair Value Measurements at December 31, 2016 Using Fair Value Hierarchy 
  Total  Level 1  Level 2  Level 3 
Derivative liability $228,605  $-  $-  $228,605 
Total $228,605  $-  $-  $228,605 

 

The carrying values of all of our other financial instruments, which include accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and amounts due to related parties approximate their current fair values because of their nature and respective maturity dates or durations.

 

Advertising Expenses

 

Advertising expenses are included in general and administrative expenses in the Statements of Operations and are expensed as incurred. The Company incurred $117,861 in advertising and promotion expenses in the year ended December 31, 2017.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenues when there is persuasive evidence of an arrangement, the product or service has been provided to the customer, the collection of our fees is reasonably assured and the amount of fees to be paid by the customer is fixed or determinable. Revenues primarily include revenues from microtransactions Microtransaction revenues are derived from the sale of virtual goods to the Company’s players. Proceeds from the sales of virtual goods directly are recognized as revenues when a player uses the virtual goods.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which was amended in 2015 and 2016. The new revenue recognition standard relates to revenue from contracts with customers and will supersede nearly all current U.S. GAAP guidance on this topic and eliminate industry-specific guidance.

 

The underlying principle is to use a five-step analysis of transactions to recognize revenue when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration that is expected to be received for those goods or services. The standard, as amended, is effective for annual periods beginning December 15, 2017. The Company has evaluated the ASI and have concluded that the impact of adopting the standard on our financial statements and related disclosure was not material.

 

28

 

 

The Company has implemented all other new accounting pronouncements that are in effect. These pronouncements did not have any material impact on the financial statements unless otherwise disclosed, and 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.

By agreement, the lender converted a portion of this note into common shares eliminating debt from the Company’s balance sheet. The Company has agreed to deliver an additional 70,050 shares of the Company’s Common Stock to the lender by year-end 2016, which will eliminate the debenture in its entirety.

Our Articles of Incorporation authorize us to issue up to 2,250,350 shares of preferred stock, $0.001 par value. Of the 2,250,000 authorized shares of preferred stock, the total number of shares of Class A Preferred Shares the Corporation shall have the authority to issue is Two Hundred Forty Nine thousand Nine Hundred Ninety Nine (249,999), with a stated par value of $0.001 per share, the total number of shares of Class B Preferred Shares the Corporation shall have the authority to issue is Two Million (2,000,000), with a stated par value of $0.001 per share and the total number of shares of Class C Preferred Shares the Corporation shall have the authority to issue is One (1), with a stated par value of $0.001 per share.. Our Board of Directors is authorized, without further action by the shareholders, to issue shares of preferred stock and to fix the designations, number, rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions thereof, including dividend rights, conversion rights, voting rights, terms of redemption, liquidation preferences and sinking fund terms. We believe that the Board of Directors’ power to set the terms of, and our ability to issue, preferred stock will provide flexibility in connection with possible financing or acquisition transactions in the future. The issuance of preferred stock, however, could adversely affect the voting power of holders of common stock and decrease the amount of any liquidation distribution to such holders. The presence of outstanding preferred stock could also have the effect of delaying, deterring or preventing a change in control of our company.

 

As of December 31, 2017, we had 7,500 shares of our Class A preferred stock issued and outstanding. As of December 31, 2017, we had 164,781 shares of Class B preferred stock issued and outstanding. As of December 31, 2017, we had 1 shares of Class C Preferred Stock issued and outstanding. At December 31, 2017, we had 105 shares of Class D Preferred Stock issued and outstanding.

 

The 7,500 issued and outstanding shares of Class A Preferred Stock are convertible into shares of common stock at a rate of 20 common shares for each Class A Preferred Share. The 164,781 issued and outstanding shares of Class B Preferred Stock are convertible into shares of common stock at a rate of 200 common shares for each Class B Preferred Share. If all of our Class A Preferred Stock and Class B Preferred Stock are converted into shares of common stock, the number of issued and outstanding shares of our common stock will increase by 33,106,200

shares.

 

The 1 issued and outstanding share of Class C Preferred Stock has voting rights equivalent to 51% of all shares entitled to vote and is held by ViaOne Services LLC, a Company controlled by our CEO.

 

The 210 issued and outstanding shares of Class D Preferred Stock are convertible into shares of common stock at a rate of 125% of the conversion amount at a price that is the lower of 110% of the volume weighted average prices (“VWAP”) of the common stock on the closing date, the VWAP of the common stock on the conversion date or the VWAP of the common stock on the date prior to the conversion date. for each one Class A Preferred Share. The shares of Class D Preferred Stock are convertible beginning 6 months from the issue date. At December 31, 2017, no shares of Class D Preferred Stock were eligible to be converted to common stock.

 

33

 

 

The 210 issued and outstanding shares of Class D Preferred Stock are entitled to cumulative dividends at a rate of 5% of the face value of shares, or the number of shares multiplied by 1,000. The dividends accrue commencing on the issuance date of the preferred shares and accrue whether or not declared and whether or not there is sufficient earnings or surplus. The dividends are payable quarterly, with the first dividend date being December 31, 2017. The dividends are payable in cash or shares of common stock. At December 31, 2017, the Company has $666 in cumulative unpaid dividends.

 

The Class A, Class B, Class C and Class D have a liquidation preference to the common shareholders.

 

 7.Warrant

 

In connection with the $100,000 convertible debenture issued to HGT Capital, LLC, the Company issued a warrant to purchase 100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at $1.00 per share. This warrant has not been exercised, is exercisable through April 15, 2020 and has a remaining life of 2.29 years. The intrinsic value of the warrant at December 31, 2017 was zero as the exercise price exceeded the closing stock price.

 

 8. Related Party Transactions

 

On or around April 7, 2016, Silver Linings Management, LLC funded the Company $13,439.50 in the form of convertible debentures secured by certain high-powered gaming machines purchased from XIDAX. Such note bears interest at a rate of 10% per annum payable in cash or kind at the option of the Company matures on April 1, 2018, and is convertible into Series B Preferred shares at the option of the holder at any time.

 

On November 30, 2016, ViaOne Services, LLC (“ViaOne”) purchased a Secured Promissory Note equal to a maximum initial principal amount of $150,000 issued by the Company to ViaOne. As additional advances were made by ViaOne to the Company, the principal amount of the Note was increased to $225,000 and $363,000 by amendments dated January 31, 2017 and March 1,, 2017, respectively.

 

On May 5, 2017, ViaOne delivered a default notice to the Company pursuant to Section 6 of the Note Purchase Agreement but has subsequently extended the due date and has increased the funding up to One Million ($1,000,000) dollars. After giving the Company a fifteen (15) day notice period to cure the default under the Stock Pledge Agreement, dated November 30, 2016, entered by and among the Company, CMG and ViaOne (“Pledge Agreement”), ViaOne took possession of the Series C Stock, which was subject of the Pledge Agreement.

 

The Note as amended increased from time to time due to additional advances provided to the Company by ViaOne.

 

On September 1, 2017, the Company executed an amended Employee Services Agreement with ViaOne which stipulated that ViaOne would continue providing to the Company services relating to the Company’s human resources, marketing, advertising, accounting and financing for a monthly management fee of $25,000. This agreement was amended on January 1, 2018 to continue until December 31, 2018. The accrued monthly management fees, $100,000 at December 31, 2017, are convertible by ViaOne into the Company’s common stock at rate of 125% of the accrued fees at a conversion price of (i) $0.05 per share; or (ii) the volume weighted adjusted price (“VWAP”) of the common stock on the 14th day of each month if the 14th of that month is a trading day. In the event the 14th day of a month falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a trading holiday, the VWAP of the Common Stock will be valued on the last trading day before the 14th day of the month.

 

34

 

 

At December 31, 2017, the total amount owed to ViaOne Services, was $838,796.

 

The Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer is the Chairman of ViaOne.

 9.Income Taxes

 

The Company has a net operating loss carried forward of $573,775 available to offset taxable income in future years which commence expiring in fiscal 2030.

 

The U.S. Tax Reform Act amends the Internal Revenue Code to reduce tax rates and modify policies, credits, and deductions for individuals and business. For businesses, the Act reduces the corporate tax rate from a maximum of 35% to a flat 21% rate. The rate reduction is effective on January 1, 2018. As a result of the rate reduction, the Company has reduced the deferred tax asset balance as of December 31, 2017 by $80,329. As a result of the full valuation allowance on the net deferred tax assets, there was a corresponding adjustment to the valuation allowance for this same amount. Therefore, there is no impact on the Company’s 2017 earnings for the law change. In accordance with SAB 118, the Company has determined that there is no deferred tax benefit or expense with respect to the re-measurement of certain deferred tax assets and liabilities due to the full valuation allowance against net deferred tax assets. Additional analysis of the law and the impact to the Company will be performed and any impact will be recorded in the respective quarter in 2018, if applicable

 

The significant components of deferred income tax assets and liabilities at December 31, 2017 and 2016 are as follows:

 

  2017  2016 
Net Operating Loss Carryforward $1,607,135  $573,775 
Valuation allowance  (1,607,135) $(573,775)
Net Deferred Tax Asset $-  $- 

 

The income tax benefit has been computed by applying the weighted average income tax rates of Canada (federal and provincial statutory rates) and of the United States (federal and state rates) of 21% and 35%, respectively, to the net loss before income taxes calculated for each jurisdiction. The tax effect of the significant temporary differences, which comprise future tax assets and liabilities, are as follows:

  2017  2016 
Income tax recovery at statutory rate $217,006  $200,821

ITEM 9A.CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2017. Based on the evaluation of these disclosure controls and procedures, and in light of the material weaknesses found in our internal controls over financial reporting, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective until June 30, 2017.

 

We believe we have applied procedures and processes asnecessaryto ensure the reliability of our financial reporting regarding this annual report. Accordingly, the Company believes, based on its knowledge, that: (i) this annualreportdoesnotcontain any untrue statement of amaterialfact or omit to stateamaterial fact necessary to make the statements made, in light of the circumstances under which they were made,notmisleading with respect to the period covered bythisreport; and (ii) the financial statements, and other financial information includedinthis annual report, fairly presentinall material respects our financial condition, resultsofoperations and cash flows as of and for the periods presentedinthis annual report.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f). The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

 37 
 

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, the Company conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2017 using the criteria established in ”Internal Control - Integrated Framework (2013) ” issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”).

 

A material weakness is a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. In its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2017, the Company determined that there were control deficiencies that constituted material weaknesses, as described below.

 

 1.We do not have an Audit Committee– While not being legally obligated to have an audit committee, it is the management’s view that such a committee, including a financial expert member, is the important entity-level control over the Company’s financial statements. Currently, the Board of Directors acts in the capacity of the Audit Committee and does not include a member that is considered to be independent of management to provide the necessary oversight over management’s activities.
   
 2.We did not maintain appropriate cash controls– Until June 30, 2017, we did not maintain sufficient internal controls over financial reporting for the cash process, including failure to segregate cash handling and accounting functions, and did not require dual signature on our bank accounts. From June 30, 2017 through December 31, 2017, due to the change in corporate officers and board of directors, we have implemented appropriate cash controls and enforced separation of accounting functions to appropriately maintain cash controls.
   
 3.We implemented appropriate information technology controls– As of December 31, 2017, we retain copies of all financial data and material agreements. There is a formal procedure or evidence of normal backup of our data or off-site storage of the data in the event of theft, misplacement, or loss due to unmitigated factors.

 

Accordingly, we have concluded that these control deficiencies resulted in a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis by the Company’s internal controls.

 

As a result of the material weaknesses described above, did not maintain effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2017 based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework (2013) issued by COSO.

Continuing Remediation Efforts to address deficiencies in Company’s Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

The Company has engaged in a business of merit and has sufficient personnel available. Our Board of Directors, in particular, has establish the following remediation measures in connection with the aforementioned deficiencies:

 

 1.Our Board of Directors has nominated a financial expert on our Board of Directors.
   
 2.We have appointed additional personnel to assist with the preparation of our monthly financial reporting, which includes preparation of the monthly bank reconciliations.

 42 
 

 

Code of Ethics

 

We have adopted a corporate code of ethics. We believe our code of ethics is reasonably designed to deter wrongdoing and promote honest and ethical conduct; provide full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in public reports; comply with applicable laws; ensure prompt internal reporting of code violations; and provide accountability for adherence to the code.

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires our executive officers and directors, and persons who beneficially own more than 10% of our equity securities, to file reports of ownership and changes in ownership with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Officers, directors and greater than 10% shareholders are required by SEC regulation to furnish the Company with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file. Based on our review of the copies of such forms we received, we believe that during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, we have not complied with such filing requirements applicable to our officers and directors. We plan to comply with such filing requirements in the future.

 

Director Independence

 

We do not have any independent director.

 

Family Relationships

 

There are no family relationships between any of the officers, directors, or consultants.

 

Conflicts of Interest

Indemnification

 

Under our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of the corporation, we may indemnify an officer or director who is made a party to any proceeding, including a lawsuit, because of his position, if he acted in good faith and in a manner, he reasonably believed to be in our best interest. We may advance expenses incurred in defending a proceeding. To the extent that the officer or director is successful on the merits in a proceeding as to which he is to be indemnified, we must indemnify him against all expenses incurred, including attorney’s fees. With respect to a derivative action, indemnity may be made only for expenses actually and reasonably incurred in defending the proceeding, and if the officer or director is judged liable, only by a court order. The indemnification is intended to be to the fullest extent permitted by the laws of the State of Nevada.

 

Regarding indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933, which may be permitted to directors or officers under Nevada law, we are informed that, in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission, indemnification is against public policy, as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable.
