NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 - GENERAL

 

Citrine Global, Corp. (“Citrine Global” or the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on May 26, 2010. The Company’s common stock is traded in the United States on the OTCQB market under the ticker symbol “CTGL.”

 

On June 3, 2020 the Company established a wholly owned new Israeli subsidiary: CTGL – Citrine Global Israel Ltd, (the “Israeli Subsidiary”).

 

On August 20, 2020, the Israeli Subsidiary, Beezz Home Technologies Ltd., and Golden Holdings Neto Ltd. incorporated Cannovation Center Israel Ltd. Israeli Subsidiary holds 60% of Cannovation Center Israel Ltd.’s shares, while each of Beezz Home Technologies Ltd. and Golden Holdings Neto Ltd. holds 20% of its shares.

 

On November 22, 2020, certain of the Company’s stockholders representing more than 50% of the Company’s outstanding share capital (the “Majority Consenting Stockholders”) approved an amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation (the “Reverse Stock Split Certificate of Amendment”) in order to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock pursuant to a range of between 40-to-1 and 100-to-1 (the “Reverse Stock Split”). Pursuant to the Reverse Stock Split, each forty or one hundred shares of common stock, as shall be determined by the Board at a later time, will be automatically converted, without any further action by the stockholders, into one share of common stock. No fractional shares of common stock will be issued as the result of the Reverse Stock Split. Instead, each stockholder of the Company will be entitled to receive one share of common stock in lieu of the fractional share that would have resulted from the Reverse Stock Split. In addition, the Majority Consenting Stockholders also approved the elimination of the Company’s entire authorized class of fifty million (50,000,000) undesignated preferred stock, thereby reducing the total number of shares of capital stock that the Company may issue from one billion five hundred fifty-thousand (1,550,000,000) shares to one billion five hundred thousand (1,500,000,000) shares, all of which are designated as common stock (the “Certificate of Elimination”). The Certificate of Elimination will be effective upon the filing with the Secretary of the State of Delaware, which was not completed as of the date of this report’s filing. The Reverse Stock Split Certificate of Amendment will be effective upon receipt of approval from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) and the filing with the Secretary of the State of Delaware, both of which were not completed as of the date of the approval of the financial statements.

 

On July 13, 2021, the Ministry of Economy of the Israeli government recommended to the Israel Land Authority that it approve a grant of 11,687 square meters of industrial land in Yeruham, Israel for Cannovation Center Israel to build the Cannovation Center, to include factories, laboratories, logistics and a distribution center for the medical cannabis, and botanicals industries. As noted, Citrine Global owns 60% of the share capital of Cannovation Center Israel, through the Israeli Subsidiary. The grant was initially awarded on December 30, 2020 for 10,000 square meters of industrial land in Yeruham, Israel and was increased to 11,687 square meters on July 13, 2021. Cannovation Center Israel is in process of receiving the required building permits and approvals to start the construction and is in process with several financing entities in the area of real-estate financing.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)

 

On April 13, 2021, Citrine S A L Investment & Holding Ltd., (“Citrine S A L”) a major shareholder of the Company, on behalf of itself and its affiliates and related parties, has furnished the Company with an irrevocable letter of obligation to financially support the Company until June 30, 2022. On August 13, 2021, Citrine S A L Investment & Holding Ltd. extended this support through December 30, 2022.

 

See also Notes 4C and 6A with additional cash proceeds to the Company.

 

Based on the Company’s current cash balances, and the irrevocable letter of obligation from Citrine S A L noted above, the Company believes it has sufficient funds for its plans for the next twelve months from the issuance of these financial statements. As the Company is embarking on its new activity as detailed herein, it is incurring losses. It cannot determine with reasonable certainty when and if it will have sustainable profits.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiary, prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and with the instructions to Form 10-Q. In the opinion of management, the financial statements presented include all material adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. However, these results are not necessarily indicative of results for any other interim period or for the year ended December 31, 2021.

 

Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been omitted pursuant to the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Citrine Global and its Israeli Subsidiary. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting periods. Significant estimates include share-based compensation liability (see Note 3). Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Fair value

 

Fair value of certain of the Company’s financial instruments including cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and other accrued liabilities approximate cost because of their short maturities. The Company measures and reports fair value in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosure,” which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.

 

Fair value, as defined by ASC 820, is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The fair value of an asset should reflect its highest and best use by market participants, principal (or most advantageous) markets, and an in-use or an in-exchange valuation premise. The fair value of a liability should reflect the risk of nonperformance, which includes, among other things, the Company’s credit risk.

 

Valuation techniques are generally classified into three categories: (i) the market approach; (ii) the income approach; and (iii) the cost approach. The selection and application of one or more of the techniques may require significant judgment and are primarily dependent upon the characteristics of the asset or liability, and the quality and availability of inputs. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value under ASC 820 must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. ASC 820 also provides fair value hierarchy for inputs and resulting measurement as follows:

 

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2: Quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability; and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities; and

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability that are supported by little or no market activity, and that are significant to the fair values.

 

Fair value measurements are required to be disclosed by the level within the fair value hierarchy in which the fair value measurements in their entirety fall. Fair value measurements using significant unobservable inputs (in level 3 measurements) are subject to expanded disclosure requirements including a reconciliation of the beginning and ending balances, separately presenting changes during the period attributable to the following: (i) total gains or losses for the period (realized and unrealized), (ii) segregating those gains or losses included in earnings, and (iii) a description of where those gains or losses included in earning are reported in the statement of operations.

Conversion feature

 

See Note 4(c) with regard to the loans to which the following conversion features were embedded derivatives. In accordance with ASC 815-15-25, the conversion feature was considered embedded derivative instrument, and is to be recorded at its fair value separately from the convertible notes, within current liabilities in the Company’s balance sheet. The conversion component is then marked to market each reporting period with the resulting gains or losses shown in the statements of operations (See also Note 4B).

 

The fair value of the conversion feature (hereafter “Convertible Component”) was estimated using the Monte-Carlo simulation model to compute the Convertible Component’s fair value. The assumptions used to perform the Monte-Carlo simulation model were consistent with those utilized in the Company’s Black-Scholes valuation for stock options are detailed below:

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In May 2021, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2021-04, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Debt—Modifications and Extinguishments (Subtopic 470-50), Compensation— Stock Compensation (Topic 718), and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815- 40): Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options (“ASU 2021-04”). The guidance is effective for the Company on January 1, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting these standards.

 

In August 2020, issued (“ASU”) No. 2020-06, Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity. ASU 2020-06 will simplify the accounting for convertible instruments by reducing the number of accounting models for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock. Limiting the accounting models results in fewer embedded conversion features being separately recognized from the host contract as compared with current GAAP. Convertible instruments that continue to be subject to separation models are (1) those with embedded conversion features that are not clearly and closely related to the host contract, that meet the definition of a derivative, and that do not qualify for a scope exception from derivative accounting and (2) convertible debt instruments issued with substantial premiums for which the premiums are recorded as paid-in capital. ASU 2020-06 also amends the guidance for the derivatives scope exception for contracts in an entity’s own equity to reduce form-over-substance-based accounting conclusions.

ASU 2020-06 will be effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that the adoption of ASU 2020-06 will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statement presentation or disclosures.

 

Other new pronouncements issued but not effective as of September 30, 2021 are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE 3 – STOCK OPTIONS

 

 A.On August 15, 2021, the Company’s board of directors determined to increase the number of shares reserved for issuance under the 2018 Stock Incentive Plan to 90,000,000 shares of common stock thereunder and recommended to the Company shareholders to approve the increase in the pool. The Board also determined to grant to each of Ilanit Halperin and David Kretzmer, directors of the Company, a grant of options to purchase 9,425,680 shares of common stock, and Doron Birger, a Company director, options to purchase 2,365,420 shares, in each case at per share exercise price of $0.05 per share, provided, that such grant is subject to approval by the shareholders of the increase in the plan pool. The options vest over a two year period, in eight (8) equal installments, with the first instalment vesting on the third month anniversary of each individual’s start date and each further instalment on each subsequent third month anniversary, where the start date is, in the case of Ilanit Halperin February 27, 2020, in the case of Doron Birger September 20, 2020 and in the case of David Kretzmer is March 1, 2021, subject to such individual’s continued service with the Company.

 

Since this grant is subject to approval by the shareholders of the increase in the plan pool, as of September 30, 2021, the options are recorded as a liability and changes each period will be recorded through the statement of income until the grant of date. The fair value at September 30, 2021 was determined using the Black-Scholes pricing model, assuming a risk free rate of 0.98%, a volatility factor of 162.1%, dividend yields of 0% and an expected life of 5 years. The Company estimated the fair value of the options at September 30, 2021 at $1,132,066. Total share based compensation expenses during the three months ended September 30, 2021 amounted to $871,699.

 

The following table presents the Company’s stock option activity for employees and directors of the Company for the nine months ended September 30, 2021:

SCHEDULE OF STOCK OPTION ACTIVITY 

  Number of Options  Weighted Average Exercise Price 
Outstanding at December 31, 2020  46,762   0.0011 
Granted  -   -

Forfeited or expired  -   - 
Outstanding at September 30, 2021  46,762   0.0011 
Number of options exercisable at September 30, 2021  46,762   0.0011 

 

The aggregate intrinsic value of the awards outstanding as of September 30, 2021 is $106,084. These amounts represent the total intrinsic value, based on the Company’s stock price of $ 0.055 as of September 30, 2021, less the weighted exercise price. This represents the potential amount received by the option holders had all option holders exercised their options as of that date.

 B.On March 5, 2020 and November 11, 2020, the Company issued 15,000,000 and 13,222,082 shares of Common Stock, respectively, to its former legal counsel in exchange for its legal consulting services, which was provided until February 28, 2021. The Company estimated the fair value of the shares issued based on the share price at the grant date at $9,003 thousand.

 

The Company recorded a share based compensation expense in the amount of 1,737 thousands in the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

NOTE 4 – EVENTS DURING THE PERIOD

 

 A.On June 25, 2020, the Company and the Israeli Subsidiary entered into an agreement to grant Intelicanna Ltd. (“Intelicanna”) New Israeli Shekel (“NIS”) 1 million in cash (approximately $290,000) in direct financing for working capital purposes. The financing will bear 6% annual interest, and Intelicanna will make additional payments equal to 6% of its gross revenues from the date the financing was received and until the date Intelicanna’s aggregate gross revenues reach NIS 2 million (approximately $600 thousand). If the total of the 6% interest plus the additional payments would result in a return of less than 12% per year to the Company, the interest would be increased to bring the total return to 12%. Every three months Intelicanna must pay the interest, and after 12 months, it must repay the capital, plus the total of the additional payments due, plus any outstanding interest, and it must pay interest of 2% per month on any late payments, provided, however, that until the foregoing obligations are paid in full, Intelicanna must pay 50% of its gross revenues to the Company upon receipt. If Intelicanna does not pay all amounts due within 18 months, it shall, at the Company’s option, issue to the Company a number of its shares equal to NIS 1.5 million (approximately $0.45 million ) divided by the lower of (i) volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the three trading days prior to the lapse of the 18 months, and (ii) VWAP of the three trading days prior to the signing of the financing agreement. The financing must be paid by the Company to Intelicanna within 30 days of signing the financing agreement, subject to completion of due diligence to the Company’s satisfaction and to Intelicanna receiving a commercial growing license.

 

On July 9, 2020, the Company transferred to Intelicanna NIS 500,000 (approximately $145,000).

 

As of September 30, 2021, Intelicanna repaid the full principal of the loan together with 12% interest, which amounted to NIS 46,000 (approximately $14,000).

 

 B.On April 12, 2021, the parties to the Convertible Note Purchase Agreement (the “CL Agreement”) amended the CL Agreement to (i) change the annual interest on the Notes to nine percent, applicable from January 1, 2021, (ii) ensure that the Company shall repay the loans at the time it consummates an investment in the amount of at least $5 million in the Company’s securities, and (iii) modify the exercise prices of each of the A Warrants and B Warrants to $0.10 per share, and the term of the warrants be extended by one year for the A Warrants and B Warrants.

 

The Company concluded that the change in term does not constitute a trouble debt restructuring. Thereafter, the Company applied the guidance in ASC 470-50, Modifications and Extinguishments. The accounting treatment is determined by whether terms of the new debt and original debt are substantially different.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)

 

The new debt and the old debt are considered “substantially different” pursuant to ASC 470-50 when the present value of the cash flows under the terms of the new debt instrument is at least 10% different from the present value of the remaining cash flows under the terms of the original instrument (including the incremental fair value resulting from the change in the terms of the warrants held by the lender). If the original and new debt instruments are substantially different, the original debt is derecognized and the new debt should be initially recorded at fair value, with the difference recognized as an extinguishment gain or loss. Based on the analysis, the Company concluded that the change in terms should be accounted for as an extinguishment.

 

The extinguishment resulted in a loss of $619,671 (including of $360,802 – change in the fair value of the warrants which are considered transaction costs).

 

The fair value of the warrants immediately before the change were estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The assumptions used to perform the calculations as of April 12, 2021 are detailed below:

 C.On June 24, 2021, the Company received from Citrine 8 LP, a related entity, a convertible loan of $350,000 made under and pursuant to the CL Agreement. Citrine agreed to honor a Draw Down Notice for, and advanced to the Company, $350,000, under the terms of the CL Agreement. As provided for under the terms of the CL Agreement, Citrine 8 LP was also issued 10,500,105 A warrants and 10,500,105 B warrants for shares of common stock, where the A warrants are exercisable beginning December 24, 2021 through December 24, 2023 and the B warrants, in each case at a per share exercise price of $0.10.

 D.On August 13, 2021, the Company and Citrine 8 LP. Citrine High Tech 7 LP and Citrine 9 LP, the holders of $1,520,000 in principal amount under the CL Agreement (the “Outstanding CL Notes”) (as detailed in Notes 4B and 4C above), entered into an additional agreement pursuant to which, among other things, the following terms were effected:

 

 (i)Extension of the maturity date on the Outstanding CL Notes to July 31, 2023, provided, that if the Company consummates prior to maturity an investment of at least $5 million of the Company’s securities, then the Company shall repay the principal amount and accrued interest of the Notes from such proceeds;
 (ii)Amendment of the conversion price on the Outstanding CL Notes to a fixed conversion price of $0.10 per share; and
 (iii)Confirming the agreement of the holders of the Outstanding CL Notes to honor draw down notice for balance of remainder of the $1,800,000 originally committed to under the CL Agreement (i.e., $280,000) through March 31, 2022.

 

The Company concluded that the change in term does not constitute a trouble debt restructuring. Thereafter, the Company applied the guidance in ASC 470-50, Modifications and Extinguishments. The accounting treatment is determined by whether terms of the new debt and original debt are substantially different.

 

The new debt and the old debt are considered “substantially different” pursuant to ASC 470-50 when the present value of the cash flows under the terms of the new debt instrument is at least 10% different from the present value of the remaining cash flows under the terms of the original instrument.

 

Since the present value of the cash flows under the terms of the new debt instrument is less than 10 percent different from the present value of the remaining cash flows under the terms of the original instrument, the Company concluded that the change in terms should be accounted for as a modification. A new effective interest rate was established based on the carrying value of the debt and the revised cash flows.

 

Following the abovementioned amendment on August 13, 2021, the conversion component is qualifying for the scope exception under ASC 815-10-15-74(a). In accordance with ASC 815-15-35-4, since the embedded conversion option in the convertible debt no longer meets the bifurcation criteria, the fair value of the conversion component, in the amount of $670,224, was reclassified from short-term liability to shareholders equity at that date.

 E.Between August 3 – 9, 2021, the Company sold to an unrelated third party in an off market transaction 619,589 ordinary shares of Intelicanna Ltd., an Israeli medical cannabis company listed on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (“Intelicanna”), for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of 1,260,611 NIS (approximately $389,032 based on the current exchange rate). Following the sale, the Company no longer holds any Intelicanna shares. As previously reported, the Company obtained the Intelicanna shares in a share exchange agreement entered into with Intelicanna in September 2020. The Company’s decision to sell the Intelicanna shares was taken, in part, to avoid being subject to the terms of the Investment Company Act of 1940.

Overview

 

Citrine Global’s business activity is primarily comprised of developing wellness and pharma technology solutions for the botanical and medical cannabis industries. The awareness to health and wellness is growing, with an emphasis on preventive medicine and wellbeing solutions. The use of botanicals, food supplements, and medical cannabis and cannabinoids is expanding and the medical cannabis market is forecast to nearly triple from $16 billion in 2021 to $46 billion in 2026 according to the Market Data Research Report from April 2021.

 

Our vision is to become a leading global company for wellness and pharma technology solutions in the botanical and medical cannabis industries and to improve people’s health and quality of life worldwide

 

Citrine Global created a five (5)-element strategy to realize the vision to become a leading global company:

 

1st Element - Cannovation Center Platform
2nd Element - Developing & Commercializing Wellness & Pharma Products for the Botanical and Medical Cannabis Industries
3rd Element - Israeli Technology as a source of innovation for global markets
4th Element - Acquiring Companies
5th Element - Global Network & Market Potential

 

Citrine Global’s headquarters and senior management are based in Israel, where the Company operates via its 100%-owned-subsidiary, CTGL Citrine Global Israel Ltd., and its 60% owned-subsidiary Cannovation Center Israel Ltd., and has a strong foothold in Israel through established contacts with leading universities, researchers, labs, entrepreneurs, and focuses on Israeli technologies as a source of innovation for global markets.

 

Cannovation Center Israel Ltd. filed in October 2021 in the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office a provisional patent application for “Pharmaceutical Compositions and Methods for the Treatment of Side Effects Associated with the Use of Cannabis, Cannabinoids, and Related Products”. The invention addresses technologies and solutions to support medical cannabis patients who experience side effects related to their cannabis treatment.

 

Medical cannabis solutions have been approved for medical use and shown to benefit serious medical conditions, including cancer, multiple sclerosis, parkinson, epilepsy, chronic pain, post trauma, and more. Research indicates that many medical cannabis patients experience side effects during their cannabis treatment, such as headaches, dry mouth and dry eyes, lightheadedness and dizziness, drowsiness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, disorientation, hallucinations, increased heart rate, increased appetite, impaired judgement, impaired coordination, and more. Some medical cannabis patients continue treatment despite experiencing side effects, while research shows that at least 15% choose to discontinue treatment despite good clinical outcomes achieved with the cannabis treatment. Following thorough investigation of cannabis treatment related side effects, we decided to focus on answering this unmet need and developing complementary solutions. The patent application advances our ongoing botanical and cannabis-related research and planned clinical trials on wellness to pharma solutions and products.

 

We developed and commercialized the Green Botanicals ‘Side by Side’ product line that includes dozens of proprietary botanical formulations comprised of ingredients such as medicinal mushrooms, vitamins, minerals, and other herbal extracts. The Green Botanicals Side by Side product line will be offered to medical cannabis patients as complementary solutions together with their cannabis treatment with the aim of improving the quality of the cannabis treatment.

 

Our strategy is to market the Green Botanicals ‘Side by Side’ product line as nutritional supplements in collaboration with cannabis distribution channels, pharmacies, dispensers, and leading cannabis companies worldwide with all products meeting the relevant regulatory approvals in every territory.

 

We are in the process of running a clinical trial in which we monitor cannabis patients with our solutions as part of their cannabis treatment as part of our strategy of developing wellness & pharma solutions.

Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Liquidity is the ability of an enterprise to generate adequate amounts of cash to meet its needs for cash requirements. At September 30, 2021, we had current assets of $774,568 compared to total current assets of $2,649,026 as of December 31, 2020. At September 30, 2021, we had total assets of $1,228,619 compared to total assets of $3,104,528 as of December 31, 2020. The decrease in total assets is mainly due to decrease in our prepaid share based compensation payment to service provider. At September 30, 2021, we had current liabilities of $1,783,407 as compared to $1,701,670 as of December 31, 2020. At September 30, 2021, we had total liabilities of $2,112,219 as compared to $1,701,670 as of December 31, 2020. The increase is mainly attributed to the increase in the balance of accounts payables and accrued expenses and the balance of convertible notes.

 

At September 30, 2021, we had a cash balance of $684,302 compared to the cash balance of $206,278 as of December 31, 2020.

 

At September 30, 2021, we had a working capital deficiency of $1,008,839 as compared with a working capital of $947,356 at December 31, 2020.

 

On June 24, 2021, we received from Citrine 8 LP, a related entity, a loan of $350,000 made under and pursuant to the Convertible Note Purchase Agreement dated as of April 1, 2020, as subsequently amended (the “Convertible Note Agreement”), entered into by Citrine Global, Corp., Citrine 8 LP and other related entities. Citrine agreed to honor a Draw Down Notice for, and advanced to us, $350,000. In connection therewith, Citrine 8 agreed to extend the date on which a Draw Down Notice can be honored under the Convertible Note Agreement and advanced funds on the same terms and conditions as are specified in the Convertible Note Agreement. As provided for under the terms of the Convertible Note Agreement, Citrine 8 will be issued 10,500,105 A warrants and 10,500,105 B warrants for shares of common stock, where the A warrants are exercisable beginning December 24, 2021 through December 24, 2023 and the B warrants in each case at a per share exercise price of $0.10.

Between August 3 – 9, 2021, we sold to an unrelated third party in an off market transaction 619,589 ordinary shares of Intelicanna Ltd., an Israeli medical cannabis company listed on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (“Intelicanna”), for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of 1,260,611 NIS (approximately $391,500 based on the current exchange rate). Following the sale, the Company no longer holds any Intelicanna shares. As previously reported, the Company obtained the Intelicanna shares in a share exchange agreement entered into with Intelicanna in September 2020.

 

On April 13, 2021, the Citrine S A L Group has furnished the Company with an irrevocable letter of obligation to support the Company until December 30, 2022 financially. We believe that this commitment will allow the Company to be operational as planned and budgeted through this period (the “Irrevocable Letter”).

 

Finally, on August 15, 2021, we and the holders of the outstanding loans under the Convertible Loan Agreement entered into an agreement which, among other things, extends the maturity dates of these loans to July 31, 2023, provided that if we consummate prior to maturity an investment of at least $5 million of the Company’s securities, then the Company shall repay the principal amount and accrued interest of the Notes from such proceeds. In addition, these holders confirmed their agreement to honor draw down notice by the Company through March 31, 2022 for the balance of the originally committed amount of $1,800,000 (i.e., $280,000).

 

Based on the Company’s current cash balances, the proceeds of the loan made by Citrine 8 LP, the proceeds of the sale from the Intelicanna shares, the extensions of the maturity dates under the outstanding loans described above and the Irrevocable Letter, the Company believes that it has sufficient funds for its plans for the next twelve months from the issuance of these financial statements. As the Company is embarking on its activities as detailed herein, it is incurring losses. It cannot determine with reasonable certainty when and if it will have sustainable profits.
