UNCERTAINTY DUE TO GLOBAL OUTBREAK OF COVID-19

 

In March of 2020, the World Health Organization declared an outbreak of COVID-19 Global pandemic. The COVID-19 has impacted vast array of businesses through the restrictions put in place by most governments internationally, including the federal, provincial, and municipal governments, regarding travel, business operations and isolation/quarantine orders. At this time, the extent of the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the Company and its operations is unknown and will greatly depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and that cannot be predicted with confidence. These uncertainties arise from the inability to predict the ultimate geographic spread of the disease, and the duration of the outbreak, including the duration of travel restrictions, business closures or disruptions, and quarantine/isolation measures that are currently, or may be put, in place world-wide to fight the virus. While the extent of the impact is unknown, the COVID-19 outbreak may hinder the Company’s ability to raise financing for its research and development initiatives or operating costs due to uncertain capital markets,

supply chain disruptions, increased government regulations and other unanticipated factors, all of which may also negatively impact the Company’s business and financial condition.

 

ITEM 1: BUSINESS

 

General

 

We were incorporated on August 4, 2010, under the laws of the State of Nevada under the name “SOS Link Corporation”. On April 15, 2011, we changed our place of incorporation from the State of Nevada to the Province of British Columbia, Canada and concurrently changed our name to Venza Gold Corp.  The change from Nevada to British Columbia was approved by our shareholders on April 14, 2011. On January 6, 2014, we changed our name to CoreComm Solutions Inc., on February 11, 2015, we changed our name to VGrab Communications Inc., and on December 23, 2020, we changed our name to Duesenberg Technologies Inc.

 

On February 10, 2015, we completed an acquisition of the VGrab software application (the “VGrab Application”) pursuant to the terms of a software purchase agreement dated January 8, 2015 (the “Software Purchase Agreement”) between us and Hampshire Capital Limited (“Hampshire”). The VGrab Application is a free mobile voucher application developed for smartphones using the Android and Apple iOS operating systems and allows users to redeem vouchers on their smartphones at a number of retailers and merchants.

 

On June 24, 2015, we formed a subsidiary, VGrab International Ltd., (“VGrab International”) under the Labuan Companies Act 1990 in Federal Territory of Labuan, Malaysia. The initial focus of the VGrab International was to continue development of the VGrab Application and continue its market penetration in Southeast Asia.  As of the date of this Annual Report on Form 10-K, VGrab International is used as a holding company as all the business operations were moved to VGrab Communications Malaysia Sdn Bhd (“VGrab Malaysia”), which we incorporated on May 17, 2018, under the Malaysia Companies Act 2016 in Malaysia. The main business objective of Vgrab Malaysia is to facilitate online promotions, advertising and e-commerce.

 

Since its incorporation, VGrab Malaysia has been working on the development of its SMART System prototype. VGrab’s new SMART System will consist of several modules, including VGrab Memberships system, which will allow its users to sign up via internet or quick response code, also known as “QR Code”, VGrab Cloud Management System (“VCMS”), and VGrab Database Management System (“VDMS”). VCMS and VDMS will form the backbone of VGrab’s SMART System, integrating each future developed VGrab SMART System’s module into the platform. The Company is currently testing the development of the VGrab SMART System before deployment to potential clients.

 

On February 18, 2019, we formed another subsidiary, VGrab Asia Limited (“Vgrab Asia”). The main business objective of Vgrab Asia is to facilitate online promotions, advertising and e-commerce to its potential customer based in P.R.China. In addition, Vgrab Asia is going to position itself as commodities trader to capture the current market trends in P.R.China.

 

On March 5, 2019, VGrab Asia entered into a mobile application development agreement with a group of private software developers from China (the “Vendor”) to develop a mobile software application (“VGrab WeChat Application”). VGrab WeChat Application is developed for use with smartphones in P.R.China using the WeChat Android and Apple iOS operating systems allowing users to sign up for memberships, deposit money, purchase products, redeem vouchers, upload media promotions onto the smartphones, etc... On August 14, 2019, the VGrab WeChat Application was tested and completed for client usage.

 

In March of 2020 we completed development of the prototype VGrab vending machine (the “Vending Machine”) and were attempting to organize the first test run before starting a large-scale production and commercialization of the Vending Machines. Prior to COVID-19 measures,  we were expecting to have the first prototype of the Vending Machine installed and operational at a local university by the end of April with further units to be placed across the university’s campus and other universities across Malaysia. However, due to COVID-19 measures, we were required to postpone the roll-out until the restrictions set to prevent the spread of virus are lifted and businesses are allowed to resume their normal operations.

The newly developed Vending Machine is customizable to sell variety of consumer products ranging from traditional snacks, soft drinks, and coffee, to prepaid mobile cards and other goods, while simultaneously displaying advertisements and other various promotional content. Each Vending Machine is based on the  operating system developed by us, and is supplied with a credit card reader and a QR Code reader, which facilitate not only payments with credit cards, but also enables payments via eWallet and other membership-based payments.

 

On November 1, 2019, we incorporated Duesenberg Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Duesenberg NV”). The purpose of Duesenberg NV is to undertake the development of Electric Vehicle (“Duesenberg EV”) using the Duesenberg brand. We acquired the rights to use the Duesenberg name in 2018. We are planning to develop the Duesenberg EV in partnerships with leading developers and suppliers for various components into the vehicle, and also include our in-house developed VGrab SMART System as part of its operating system.

 

On January 8, 2021, Duesenberg NV signed a contract with Rocket Supreme, the Barcelona, Spain automotive design house established by Christopher Reitz. The agreement is the first step towards creating a network of suppliers required to successfully complete the Duesenberg EV development project. We expect the design of the first Duesenberg EV to be released in late 2021.

 

In order to support the development and future production of Duesenberg EV, we will require significant financing. As at the date of this Annual Report on Form 10-K we have yet to secure the required financing, and cannot assure the reader that we will be successful in securing the required funding.

 

Business of Duesenberg Technologies Inc. (fka VGrab Communications Inc.)

 

We continue to expand and evolve our corporate strategy. Subsequent to October 31, 2020, we have made another shift to integrate our SMART Systems with development of Duesenberg EV capitalizing on our acquisition of the rights to the use of the Duesenberg brand. Since the acquisition of the Vgrab technology in 2015, the Company has been in the business of advance information technology. We believe the integration of our SMART Systems with Electric Vehicle industry will allow the Company to open a new frontier in advancing its technology.

 

Alongside with venturing into Duesenberg EV development, we continue working on the development of our SMART Systems and Vending Machines. Since the early months of 2020 the retail and consumer markets have been largely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic; majority of our potential clients for the SMART Systems and the Vending Machines have decided to postpone any purchases or joint ventures until such time that the global economy starts to recover. The Company decided to use the global situation brought on by COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to pivot, realign, and improve its SMART Systems based on the current and future expected market trends.

 

We see the current problem of energy resources, and eminent lack thereof, becoming one of the most important trends in the industry. Many various industries are turning towards development and use of clean, renewable energy sources, such as solar energy, wind energy, etc. Announcement of prototypes of electric vehicles and their mass productions scheduled for the near future are becoming everyday occurrence. Many vehicles are being designed to use only electricity as their main source of power.

 

With the development of Duesenberg EV, the Company will be involved in the EV technology revolution and is determined to redefine the primal relationship between vehicle and a driver, which has been trending in the last decade. Duesenberg’s future EV technologies will be incorporated in nearly every component of a vehicle, from dashboard panels and passenger zones to the engine configuration, braking systems, headlights and tires, without minimizing attention to building comfortable and luxurious interiors for all of the individual handcrafted vehicles.

 

The Company’s goal is to become climate-neutral across our full value chain, in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement, a legally binding international treaty on climate change which was adopted by 196 Parties at the twenty-first session of the Conference of the Parties (“COP 21”) in Paris, on December 12, 2015, and entered into force on November 4, 20161. We are committed to energy resiliency through Duesenberg’s Vehicle Development in Energy Transition Goal2. The Paris Agreement  identified an immediate and urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG)

2 https://www.irena.org/energytransition; Energy transition Goal is a transformation from fossil-based to zero-carbon emission.

emissions to help mitigate the effects of climate change, through reduction of energy use, and improvement of air quality.

 

Our Strategy and Distribution

 

Our marketing strategy will be based mainly on ensuring Duesenberg’s EV, associated products, and Duesenberg brand are recognizable and trusted. We plan on achieving this goal through ensuring the adequate and timely information coupled with excellent service targeted towards our clients. Duesenberg brand is a well-known heritage brand and is highly respected in the automotive industry; we intend to uphold the standards set by its founders with our Duesenberg EV and products based on our SMART Technologies.

 

We anticipate that initial target users of Duesenberg EV would consist of high net-worth individuals or car collectors. While in development of the prototype Duesenberg EV, we are planning to manufacture a limited-edition Duesenberg EV package to market to potential high net-worth individuals as Founder’s Series.

 

In order to achieve our goals and commence the manufacturing of the Founder’s Series vehicle, we will require substantial financing to secure various vendors, consultants, designers, manufacturers, and so on. There is no assurance that the Company and/or Duesenberg NV will be able to secure the necessary financing to commence the design and manufacturing of the Duesenberg EV, nor is there any assurance that the scheduled milestones will be attained as envisioned in our current plan of development.

 

Additionally, the conceptual design of our vehicle does not have many of the legacy issues of current car manufacturers which allows our body, construction and powertrain infrastructure to be implemented in a far more cost-effective way than the existing car industry with more advanced use of Composites and Advanced Frame Techniques than traditional manufacturing allows.

 

Competition

 

The next generation of luxury automotive manufacturers are focusing on autonomous vehicles, connected vehicles, electric vehicles, and shared mobility trends. Automakers in the space of luxury electric vehicles are becoming more flexible, incorporating advanced technological and technical innovations.   

 

Duesenberg is planning to enter the United States market as the only Ultra-Premium EV. The Company will be required to compete with other non-electric Ultra-Premium combustion vehicles (ex. Bentley and Rolls Royce) as well as non-ultra premium EV’s (ex. Tesla).

 

Our competitors include companies that have substantially greater financial resources, staff and facilities than us. Our failure to obtain and maintain a competitive position within the market could have a materially adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Government Regulations

 

We are subject to a number of foreign and domestic laws and regulations that affect companies conducting business in the automotive industry and also on the Internet. Additionally, these laws and regulations may be interpreted differently across domestic and foreign jurisdictions. As a company in a new and rapidly growing industry, we are exposed to certain risks that many of these laws may change and are subject to uncertain interpretations. These laws and regulations may involve intellectual property, product liability and consumer protection, distribution, competition, online payment and point of sale services, employee, merchant and customer privacy and data security, taxes or other areas.

 

Patents and Trademarks

 

On June 25, 2018, the Company, through VGrab International Limited, assigned the rights from Brightcliff Ltd and Hampshire Motors Group (China) Limited for the use and development of its products under the brand of Duesenberg. The rights to use the Duesenberg brand expire on June 24, 2038.

 

Our VGrab name has also been trademarked under the registration certificate no 2014002852. The registration gives us non-exclusive right to use a letter “V”. The trademark is valid until March 14, 2024.

Dependence on Major Customers

 

As at the date of this Annual Report on Form 10-K we have two customers with whom we operate under month-to-month verbal service agreements. Our first customer is Duesey Coffee and Chocolates Sdn Bhd (“Duesey Coffee”), of which Mr. Lim Hun Beng, our CEO and President, is a 50% shareholder. In addition, in the last quarter of our Fiscal 2020 year we started generating revenue from WeChat Online product, which was developed specifically for Duesey Coffee in P.R. China, and is being managed by Shanghai Duesenberg Marketing Planning Co Ltd. Due to current market uncertainty associated with COVID-19 we agreed to bill our customers set monthly fees for these services without entering into any termed contracts, which will allow us or our customers to cancel the services any time. Duesey Coffee agreed to a monthly fee of 10,000 Malaysian Ringgit (approximately USD$2,350), Shanghai Duesenberg Marketing Planning Co Ltd. agreed to a monthly fee of USD$1,000.

 

In addition to the customers mentioned above, on June 25, 2018, our wholly-owned subsidiary, Vgrab International Ltd., entered into a cooperation agreement on a profit-sharing basis (the “Agreement”) with Hampshire Motor Group (China) Ltd. (“HMGC”), a related corporation, for the development and marketing of Duesenberg brand (the “Brand”) licensed to HMGC by the original Duesenberg trademark owner. Pursuant to the Agreement, Vgrab International agreed to work with HMGC on developing marketing, advertising and customer relation programs for Duesenberg’s brands, with newly-developed sub-brand, Duesey, and its Duesey Coffee being the initial product offering. Vgrab International is also expected to participate in the development of new products utilizing Duesenberg Trademark.

 

The term of the Agreement is 10 years, with an option to extend the Agreement for an additional 10-year period. Based on the Agreement, we will be entitled to a percentage of revenue generated from the sales of any new products developed by Vgrab International or jointly with HMGC, which percentage will be determined as follows: (i) 94% from revenue of up to $100,000, and (ii) 95% from revenue of over and above $100,000. In addition, we will also be entitled to a percentage of revenue generated from the sales of the products developed by HMGC prior to the entry into the Agreement based on the following schedule: (i) 20% from revenue of up to $100,000, (ii) 15% from revenue of up to $500,000, (iii) 10% from revenue of up to $1,000,000, and (iv) 5% from revenue of over and above $1,000,000.

 

As of the date of this Annual Report on Form 10-K, we have not recorded any revenue associated with the Agreement, as the services have not started yet.

 

Research and Development

 

During the fiscal year ended October 31, 2020, we incurred $14,629 (2019 - $200,333) on development of VGrab applications, SMART Systems, and Vending Machines.

 

Number of Total Employees and Number of Full Time Employees

 

As at the date of this Annual Report on Form 10-K our subsidiary, VGrab Malaysia, has 8 employees. Mr. Lim, our CEO and President, and Mr. Liong, our CFO, Corporate Secretary and the Treasurer, were on payroll of VGrab Malaysia until April 30, 2020, as of May 1, 2020 Mr. Lim and Mr. Liong are on payroll of Vgrab Asia. Our parent Company, and VGrab International had no employees during its Fiscal 2020 and 2019 years, and relied on the services of third-party consultants to support the operations.

 

ITEM 1A: RISK FACTORS

 

IN ADDITION TO THE FACTORS DISCUSSED ELSEWHERE IN THIS ANNUAL REPORT, THE FOLLOWING RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES COULD MATERIALLY ADVERSELY AFFECT OUR BUSINESS, FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.  ADDITIONAL RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES NOT PRESENTLY KNOWN TO US OR THAT WE CURRENTLY DEEM IMMATERIAL ALSO MAY IMPAIR OUR BUSINESS OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION.

 

We lack an operating history and have losses which we expect to continue into the future. As a result, we may have to suspend or cease our operations and if we do not obtain sufficient financing, our business will fail.

 

We were incorporated on August 4, 2010, however as of the date of the filing of this Annual Report on Form 10-K we were not successful in achieving profitability through our operations.


-5-


 

Our ability to achieve and maintain profitability and positive cash flow from our operations is dependent upon: (i) our ability to successfully market our Duesenberg EV to potential customers, (ii) our ability to obtain and retain customers, (iii) attract and retain merchants who wish to offer deals through our VGrab Applications and who will use our SMART Systems, (iv) react to challenges from existing and new competitors; and (v) increase the awareness of our brands domestically and internationally.

 

In order to continue our operations, we will be required to raise additional capital through financing, which would be subject to a number of factors, including market fluctuations, customer confidence, and general economic condition.  These factors may make the timing, amount, terms or conditions of additional financing unavailable to us.  Since our inception, we have used our common shares to raise money for our operations. We have not attained profitable operations and are dependent upon obtaining financing to pursue our plan of operation.

 

Because we are in a development stage of our operations, our business has a high risk of failure.

 

As of the date of the filing of this Annual Report on Form 10-K we are in a development stage of our operations and have incurred net losses since our inception. We have yet to attain profitable operations and are dependent upon obtaining adequate financing to carry out our business activities.  The success of our business operations will depend upon our ability to obtain further financing to complete our planned development and marketing programs and to attain profitable operations. Companies in development stage of their operations often encounter difficulties in generating revenue from services that are provided based on the applications installed on smart phones, and the risk of failure of these companies is high.  If we are not able to complete our strategy and successfully develop and market our Vgrab applications, SMART, as well as Duesenberg EV, we will not be able to attain sustainable profitable operations, resulting in failure of our business.

 

In addition, we have significant risks of failure associated with our business expansion into electric vehicles. There is uncertainty regarding our ability to execute prospective business plans as result of our inexperience in developing and mass-producing electric vehicles. As a result, we will depend on certain key personnel and may not be able to retain and attract qualified personnel. We run risks associated with developments in alternative technologies or improvements in the internal combustion engine. There is also a risk that our conceptual vehicles will fail to perform as expected.

 

We have determined there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern; as a result, we could have difficulty finding additional financing.

 

Our audited consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that we will continue as a going concern. We have not generated any revenue from our main operations since inception and have accumulated losses. Our ability to continue our operations depends on our ability to complete equity or debt financings or generate profitable operations. Such financings may not be available or may not be available on reasonable terms. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that could result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Because our largest shareholder, Hampshire Avenue SDN. BHD. (“Hampshire Avenue”) controls over 47.8% of our outstanding common stock, investors may find that corporate decisions influenced by Hampshire are inconsistent with the best interests of other stockholders.

 

Hampshire Capital Limited controls 45.57%, and Hampshire Avenue Sdn. Bhd. controls 2.20% of the issued and outstanding shares of our common stock. Hampshire Avenue is a parent company of Hampshire and Hampshire Infotech and, accordingly, beneficially controls 47.8% or our common stock (for greater clarity, Hampshire Avenue and its subsidiaries are referred to in this Form 10-K as “Hampshire Group”). In accordance with our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, Hampshire Group is able to control who is elected to our board of directors and thus could act, or could have the power to act, as our management.

 

The interests of Hampshire Group may not be, at all times, the same as those of other shareholders. Hampshire Group has the ability to significantly influence the outcome of most corporate actions requiring shareholder approval, including the merger of our company with or into another company, the sale of all or substantially all of our assets and amendments to our Articles of Incorporation. This concentration of ownership with Hampshire Group may also have the effect of delaying, deferring or preventing a change in control of VGrab which may be disadvantageous to minority shareholders.

We face intense competition.

 

Our business is evolving and intensely competitive, and is subject to changing technology, shifting user needs, and frequent introductions of new products and services.

 

We expect competition in e-commerce as well as the automotive industry, as it pertains to electrical vehicles, to continue to increase. Our current and potential competitors range from large and established companies to emerging start-ups. Established companies have longer operating histories and more established relationships with customers and users, and they can use their experience and resources against us in a variety of competitive ways, including acquisitions, investing aggressively in research and development, competing aggressively for advertisers, and using economies of scale, to name a few.

 

If our competitors are more successful than we are in developing compelling products or in attracting and retaining customers in the form of users, advertisers, and content providers, our potential for generating revenues and growth rates could decline.

 

Our success is dependent upon our ability to provide a superior mobile experience for our customers and merchants.

 

In order to continue to grow our mobile transactions, it is critical that our application works well with a range of mobile technologies, systems, networks and standards. Our business may be adversely affected if our customers choose not to access our offerings on their mobile devices or use mobile devices that do not offer access to our mobile applications. Similarly, our business may suffer if our merchants choose not to advertise through our applications or choose not to use our SMART Systems services.

 

We may be subject to claims that we violated intellectual property rights of others, which claims are extremely costly to defend and could require us to pay significant damages and limit our ability to operate.

 

Companies in the Internet and technology industries, and other patent and trademark holders seeking to profit from royalties in connection with grants of licenses, own large numbers of patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets and frequently enter into litigation based on allegations of infringement or other violations of intellectual property rights. We acquired the VGrab Application from an original developer, however, there may be intellectual property rights held by others, including patents, copyrighted works and/or trademarks, which cover significant aspects of our technology. Any intellectual property claims against us, regardless of merit, could be time consuming and expensive to settle or litigate and could divert management’s attention and other resources. These claims also could subject us to significant liability for damages and could result in our having to stop using technology or content found to be in violation of another party’s rights. We might be required or may opt to seek a license for rights to intellectual property held by others, which may not be available on commercially reasonable terms, or at all. Even if a license is available, we could be required to pay significant royalties, which would increase our operating expenses. We may also be required to develop alternative non-infringing technology, or content, which could require significant effort and expense and make us less competitive in the relevant market. Any of these results could harm our business and financial performance.

 

We have a limited number of products.

 

We are reliant on the marketing and sale of our VGrab Applications, Vmore Platform and SMART Systems.  If these products do not achieve sufficient market acceptance, it will be difficult for us to achieve consistent profitability.

 

If our software is defective, it will adversely affect our business.

 

Our VGrab Applications, Vmore Platform, and SMART Systems may contain undetected errors, defects or bugs. Although we have not suffered significant harm from any errors, defects or bugs to date, we may discover significant errors, defects or bugs in the future that we may not be able to correct or correct in a timely manner.

 

It is possible that errors, defects or bugs will be found in our existing or future software products and related services with the possible results of delays in, or loss of market acceptance of, our products and services, diversion of our resources, injury to our reputation, increased service and warranty expenses and payment of damages.

We have limited brand awareness and there is no assurance that we will be able to achieve brand awareness.

 

We have achieved limited brand awareness with respect to our VGrab Applications, Vmore Platform., and SMART Systems. There is no assurance that we will be able to achieve brand awareness.  In addition, we must develop a successful market for our products in order to complete sales. If we are not able to develop successful markets for our products, then such failure will have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and operating results.

 

We sometimes hold a significant portion of our cash in United States dollars, which could weaken our purchasing power in other currencies and limit our ability to conduct our development programs.

 

Currency fluctuations could affect the costs of our operations and affect our operating results and cash flows.  The appreciation of Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar can increase the costs of our operations.

 

If we are unable to hire and retain key personnel, we may not be able to implement our business plan and our business will fail.

 

Our success will largely depend on our ability to hire highly qualified personnel with experience in marketing, programming, data architecture and design. These individuals may be in high demand and we may not be able to attract the staff we need. In addition, we may not be able to afford the high salaries and fees demanded by qualified personnel or may lose such employees after they are hired. Currently, we have not hired any key personnel. Our failure to hire key personnel when needed could have a significant negative effect on our business.

 

The JOBS Act allows us to postpone the date by which we must comply with certain laws and regulations and reduces the amount of information provided in reports filed with the SEC. We cannot be certain if the reduced disclosure requirements applicable to “emerging growth companies” may make our common stock less attractive to investors.

 

We are and we will remain an “emerging growth company” until the earliest of (i) the last day of the fiscal year during which our total annual revenues equal or exceed $1 billion (subject to adjustment for inflation), (ii) the last day of the fiscal year following the fifth anniversary of our initial public offering, (iii) the date on which we have, during the previous three-year period, issued more than $1 billion in non-convertible debt securities, or (iv) the date on which we are deemed a “large accelerated filer” (with at least $700 million in public float) under the Exchange Act. For so long as we remain an “emerging growth company” as defined in the JOBS Act, we may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not “emerging growth companies” as described in further detail in the risk factors below. There may be a situation where investors may find our common stock less attractive because we rely on some or all of these exemptions. If some investors find our common stock less attractive as a result, we may experience decreased trading market for our common stock making our stock price more volatile. Since we avail ourselves of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements, our reduced disclosure may make it more difficult for investors and securities analysts to evaluate us and may result in less investor confidence.

 

Our election not to opt out of JOBS Act extended accounting transition period may not make its financial statements easily comparable to other companies.

 

Pursuant to the JOBS Act, as an “emerging growth company”, we can elect to opt out of the extended transition period for any new or revised accounting standards that may be issued by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) or the SEC. We have elected not to opt out of such extended transition period, which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, our company, as an “emerging growth company”, can adopt the standard for the private company. This may make comparison of our financial statements with any other public company which is not either an “emerging growth company” nor an “emerging growth company” which has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible, as possible different or revised standards may be used.


-8-


 

The JOBS Act also allows our company to postpone the date by which we must comply with certain laws and regulations intended to protect investors and to reduce the amount of information provided in reports filed with the SEC.

 

The JOBS Act is intended to reduce the regulatory burden on “emerging growth companies”. We meet the definition of an “emerging growth company” and so long as we qualify as an “emerging growth company,” we will, among other things:

 

·be exempt from the provisions of Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act requiring that its independent registered public accounting firm provide an attestation report on the effectiveness of its internal control over financial reporting; 

 

·be exempt from the “say on pay” provisions (requiring a non-binding shareholder vote to approve compensation of certain executive officers) and the “say on golden parachute” provisions (requiring a non-binding shareholder vote to approve golden parachute arrangements for certain executive officers in connection with mergers and certain other business combinations) of The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) and certain disclosure requirements of the Dodd-Frank Act relating to compensation of Chief Executive Officers; 

 

·be permitted to omit the detailed compensation discussion and analysis from proxy statements and reports filed under the Exchange Act, as amended and instead provide a reduced level of disclosure concerning executive compensation; and 

 

·be exempt from any rules that may be adopted by the PCAOB requiring mandatory audit firm rotation or a supplement to the auditor’s report on the financial statements. 

 

We have been implementing all of the reduced regulatory and reporting requirements that are available to the Company under the JOBS Act. We have elected not to opt out of the extension of time to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards available under Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act. Among other things, this means that our independent registered public accounting firm is not required to provide an attestation report on the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting so long as we qualify as an “emerging growth company”, which may increase the risk that weaknesses or deficiencies in the internal control over financial reporting go undetected. Likewise, so long as we qualify as an “emerging growth company”, we may elect not to provide certain information, including certain financial information and certain information regarding compensation of executive officers, which would otherwise have been required to be provided in filings with the SEC, which may make it more difficult for investors and securities analysts to evaluate us. As a result, investor confidence in our company and the market price of our common stock may be adversely affected.

 

Notwithstanding the above, we are also currently a “smaller reporting company”, meaning that we are not an investment company, an asset-backed issuer, or a majority-owned subsidiary of a parent company that is not a smaller reporting company and have a public float of less than $75 million and annual revenues of less than $50 million during the most recently completed fiscal year. In the event that we are still considered a “smaller reporting company”, at such time we cease being an “emerging growth company”, the disclosure we will be required to provide in our SEC filings will increase, but will still be less than it would be if we were not considered either an “emerging growth company” or a “smaller reporting company”.  Specifically, similar to “emerging growth companies”, “smaller reporting companies” are able to provide simplified executive compensation disclosures in their filings; are exempt from the provisions of Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act requiring that independent registered public accounting firms provide an attestation report on the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting; are not required to conduct say-on-pay and frequency votes until annual meetings occurring on or after January 21, 2013; and have certain other decreased disclosure obligations in their SEC filings, including, among other things, only being required to provide two years of audited financial statements in annual reports.  Decreased disclosures in our SEC filings due to our status as an “emerging growth company” or “smaller reporting company” may make it harder for investors to analyze the Company’s results of operations and financial prospects.

Because majority of our directors are not independent, they can make and control corporate decisions that may be disadvantageous to other common shareholders.

 

Our shares of common stock are listed on OTC Markets inter-dealer quotation system, which does not have director independence requirements. For the purpose of determining director independence, we have adopted the independence requirements of Canadian National Instrument 52-110 - Audit Committees (“NI 52-110”) as we are an OTC reporting issuer in the province of British Columbia. NI 52-110 recommends that the Board of Directors of a public company be constituted with a majority of individuals who qualify as “independent” directors. An “independent” director is a director who has no direct or indirect material relationship with us. A material relationship is a relationship, which could, in the view of the Board of Directors, reasonably interfere with the exercise of a director’s independent judgment. None of our current directors can be considered independent. Mr. Ong, See-Ming is not an independent director due to his share position in the Company.  Lim Hun Beng is not an independent director because, aside from being our CEO and President, he also holds controlling position with Hampshire Avenue, our majority shareholder. Mr. Liong Fook Weng is not an independent director because of his current position as CFO and Secretary of the Company, as well as the share position in the Company.

 

We do not expect to declare or pay dividends in the foreseeable future.

 

We have never paid cash dividends on our common stock and have no plans to do so in the foreseeable future. We intend to retain any earnings to develop, carry on, and expand our business.

 

“Penny stock” rules may make buying or selling our common stock difficult, and severely limit its marketability and liquidity.

 

Because our securities are considered a penny stock, shareholders will be more limited in their ability to sell their shares. 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 price of less than $5.00, other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the Nasdaq system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or quotation system. Because our securities constitute “penny stocks” within the meaning of the rules, the rules apply to us and to our securities. The rules may further affect the ability of owners of shares to sell our securities in any market that might develop for them. As long as the trading price of our common shares is less than $5.00 per share, the common shares will be subject to Rule 15g-9 under the Exchange Act. 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:

 

1.contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading; 

2.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 to such duties or other requirements of securities laws; 

3.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; 

4.contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions; 

5.defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and 

6.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 shares; and (d) a monthly account statements 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 to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitably statement. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity in the secondary market for our shares.

Revenue

 

During the year ended October 31, 2020, we started generating revenue from our SMART Systems software licensing and maintenance of the applications required to run SMART Systems. Our first customer is Duesey Coffee and Chocolates Sdn Bhd (“Duesey Coffee”), of which Mr. Lim Hun Beng, our CEO and President, is a 50% shareholder. In addition, we started generating revenue from WeChat Online product, which was developed specifically for Duesey Coffee in P.R. China, and is being managed by Shanghai Duesenberg Marketing Planning Co Ltd. Due to current market uncertainty associated with COVID-19 we agreed to bill our customers set monthly fees for these services without entering into any termed contracts, which will allow us or our customers to cancel the services any time. Duesey Coffee agreed to a monthly fee of 10,000 Malaysian Ringgit (approximately USD$2,350), Shanghai Duesenberg Marketing Planning Co Ltd. agreed to a monthly fee of USD$1,000.

 

During the year ended October 31, 2020, we generated $17,401 in revenue from our SMART Systems and WeChat Online product (2019 - $Nil).

Our operating expenses decreased by $244,296, or 34%, from $716,438 for the year ended October 31, 2019, to $472,142 for the year ended October 31, 2020. The most significant expense item that contributed to our operating expenses was associated with salaries and wages we incurred through our subsidiaries in Malaysia and Hong Kong, which totaled $295,579 and were mainly associated with salaries and reimbursable expenses we accrued to our CEO and CFO (2019 - $338,119). The second largest expense was associated with general and administrative costs of $59,997 (2019 - $56,437), of which administrative fees accounted for $44,580 (2019 - $45,160). Regulatory and filing fees totaled $32,827, an increase of $3,928, as compared to $28,899 we incurred in comparative period.

 

In addition to the above expenses, we incurred $24,000 in management fees, a decrease of $5,333, as compared to $29,333 we incurred during the year ended October 31, 2019. Our travel and entertainment expenses decreased by $17,295 to $10,437 we incurred during the year ended October 31, 2020, as compared to $27,732 we incurred in our Fiscal 2019; these decreases were associated with reduced travel requirements associated with COVID-19 travel bans imposed by various federal governments. Our professional fees increase by $2,099 from $12,143 to $14,242. During the year ended October 31, 2020, we recorded $4,353 in amortization on equipment that we purchased for Vgrab Malaysia’s operations (2019 - $4,901). Our accounting fees decreased by $2,463, from $18,541 we incurred during the year ended October 31, 2019, to $16,078 we incurred during the year ended October 31, 2020.

 

Other Items

 

During the year ended October 31, 2020, we recorded a $22,801 impairment on deposit paid by our subsidiary, VGrab Asia, to a vendor, as underlying agreement to supply certain commodities the Company acquired  for trading fell through (2019 - $Nil); $4,513 (2019 - $1,856) in realized foreign exchange gains associated with the fluctuation in foreign exchange rates between the US, Canadian, Malaysian and Hong Kong currencies; and $12,887 (2019 - $11,674) in interest associated with our liabilities under the notes payable we issued to our debt holders.

 

During the year ended October 31, 2019, we concluded negotiations with certain debt holders to convert a total of $923,798 we owed on account of services and cash advances provided to us into 6,465,546 shares of our common stock. A total of $623,798 was converted at a deemed value of $0.18 per share with remaining $300,000 converted at a deemed valued of $0.10 per share. We recorded $115,000 as loss on conversion of $660,000 debt with third-party service providers and a lender. Remaining $263,798 in converted debt was owed to Hampshire Avenue, our major shareholder. Hampshire Avenue agreed to convert the debt at a deemed price of $0.18 per share. At the time the agreement was executed, our shares were trading at $0.105 per share, resulting in $109,916 gain associated with conversion of this debt, which we recorded as an increase to an additional paid-in capital.

Translation to Reporting Currency

 

Changes in translation to reporting currency result from differences between our functional currencies, being the Canadian dollar for the parent Company, Malaysian Ringgit for VGrab Malaysia, and Hong Kong Dollar for Vgrab Asia, and our reporting currency, being the United States dollar. These differences are caused by fluctuation in foreign exchange rates between the four currencies as well as different accounting treatments between various financial instruments.

 

Liquidity

 

GOING CONCERN

 

The audited consolidated financial statements included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies that we will continue to realize our assets and discharge our liabilities in the normal course of business. We have not generated any revenues from operations since inception, have never paid any dividends and are unlikely to pay dividends or generate significant earnings in the immediate or foreseeable future. Our continuation as a going concern depends upon the continued financial support of our shareholders and management, our ability to obtain necessary debt or equity financing to continue operations, and the attainment of profitable operations.

 

Based upon our current plans, we expect to incur operating losses in future periods. At October 31, 2020, we had a working capital deficit of $501,033 and accumulated losses of $7,750,080 since inception. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. We cannot assure you that we will be able to generate significant revenues in the future. The consolidated financial statements included with this Annual Report on Form 10-K do not give effect to any adjustments that would be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern. Therefore, we may be required to realize our assets and discharge our liabilities in other than the normal course of business and at amounts different from those reflected in our financial statements.

The decrease in working capital deficit was primarily related to the conversion of $640,830 we owed to our management team for wages and management fees into 1,780,084 shares of our common stock. These changes were in part offset by reclassification of $67,429 we owed under a note payable and accrued interest thereon due on August 31, 2021 from long-term liabilities to current liabilities.

These uses of cash were offset by $53,290 increase in amounts due to related parties for reimbursable expenses, by $216,592 increase to accrued salaries payable to our CEO and CFO, and a $20,584 increase to our accounts payable and accrued liabilities.

During the year ended October 31, 2019, we used $236,594 to support our operating activities. This cash was used to cover our cash operating expenses of $683,147, and to pay $23,128 towards our future expenses. These uses of cash were offset by $34,044 increase in amounts due to related parties for reimbursable expenses, and by $212,941 increase to accrued salaries payable to our CEO and CFO. In addition, a $222,541 increase to our accounts payable and accrued liabilities and $154 decrease in GST recoverable further decreased cash used in operations.

 

Non-cash operating activities. During the year ended October 31, 2020, we recorded $22,801 in impairment of our deposits, and $1,130 in foreign exchange fluctuation between the US, Canadian, Malaysian, and Hong Kong currencies. We recorded $8,966 in interest on our notes payable to Hampshire Avenue and $3,921 in interest on CAD$83,309 note payable due on August 31, 2021. In addition, we recorded $4,353 in amortization of our office equipment.

 

During the year ended October 31, 2019, we recorded $115,000 loss on conversion of third-party debt (the shares were issued on January 8, 2020). We recorded $29,333 in management fee associated with the fair value of 133,333 shares we issued to our director, and $4,901 in amortization expense associated with the computers and other office equipment we acquired for the operations of Vgrab Malaysia. In addition, we accrued $10,720 in interest on our notes payable to Hampshire Avenue, and $954 in interest on $64,259 we reclassified from current debt to long-term debt. These non-cash transactions were in part offset by $2,799 in foreign exchange fluctuations between the US, Canadian, Malaysian, and Hong Kong currencies.

 

Net cash used in investing activities. During the year ended October 31, 2019, we used $5,515 to acquire computer and office equipment for our operations in Malaysia. We did not have any investing activities in our Fiscal 2020 year.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities. During the year ended October 31, 2020, we received $151,773 under loan agreements with Hampshire Avenue. The loans bear interest at 4% per annum, are unsecured and payable on demand.

 

During the year ended October 31, 2019, we received $243,948 under loan agreements with Hampshire Avenue. The loans bear interest at 4% per annum, are unsecured and payable on demand.

 

Non-cash financing activities. During the year ended October 31, 2020, we agreed to convert $640,830 we owed to our management team as at July 31, 2020, for salaries and reimbursable expenses as well as for management fees into 1,780,084 shares of our common stock at a deemed price of $0.36 per share. At the time of conversion our shares traded at $0.48, therefore we recognized $213,610 as decrease to our paid-in capital.

 

On October 3, 2019, we agreed to convert $100,000 we owed to a third-party lender under a non-interest-bearing loan agreement into 1,000,000 shares of our common stock at a deemed price of $0.10 per share. At the time of conversion our shares traded at $0.205, therefore we recognized $105,000 in loss on conversion. In addition, we converted $263,798 we owed to Hampshire Avenue under 4% notes payable into 1,465,546 shares of our common stock at a deemed price of $0.18 per share. Since at the time of conversion our shares traded at $0.105, we recognized $109,916 as increase to our paid-in capital. Furthermore, during our fourth quarter ended October 31, 2019 we agreed to convert $560,000 we owed to third-party vendors for services they provided to us into 4,000,000 shares of our common stock. The conversion resulted in $10,000 loss, which we expensed as part of loss on conversion of debt.

 

On July 31, 2019, we reached an agreement with one of our service providers to extend repayment of $64,259 we owed to the vendor until December 31, 2020, which we subsequently extended to August 31, 2021. The vendor agreed to extend the repayment in exchange for 6% annual interest accrued on the principal and compounded monthly. As at October 31, 2020, the full balance owed under this note payable, being $67,429 was reclassified to current liability.

 

Capital Resources

 

Our ability to continue the development and marketing of the VGrab Applications, SMART Systems, and VGrab WeChat Application, as well as commencement of Duesenberg EV development, is subject to our ability to obtain the necessary funding. We expect to raise funds through sales of our debt or equity securities. We have no committed sources of capital. If we are unable to raise funds as and when we need them, we may be required to curtail, or even to cease, our operations.


-16-


 

As of October 31, 2020, we had cash on hand of $11,715 and working capital deficit of $501,033, which raises substantial doubt about our continuation as a going concern. We plan to mitigate our losses in future years by controlling our operating expenses and actively seeking new distribution channels for our VGrab products. We cannot provide assurance that we will be successful in generating additional capital to support our development. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

 

Contingencies and Commitments

 

We had no contingencies at October 31, 2020.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements and no non-consolidated, special-purpose entities.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles requires our management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount 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. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Our management routinely makes judgments and estimates about the effects of matters that are inherently uncertain.

 

The JOBS Act contains provisions that, among other things, reduce certain reporting requirements for qualifying public companies.  As an “emerging growth company,” we may, under Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act, delay adoption of new or revised accounting standards applicable to public companies until such standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We may take advantage of this extended transition period until the first to occur of the date that we (i) are no longer an “emerging growth company” or (ii) affirmatively and irrevocably opt out of this extended transition period. We have elected to take advantage of the benefits of this extended transition period. Our consolidated financial statements may therefore not be comparable to those of companies that comply with such new or revised accounting standards. Until the date that we are no longer an “emerging growth company,” affirmatively and irrevocably opt out of the exemption provided by Securities Act Section 7(a)(2)(B), or upon issuance of a new or revised accounting standard that applies to our financial statements and that has a different effective date for public and private companies, we will disclose the date on which adoption is required for non-emerging growth companies and the date on which we will adopt the recently issued accounting standard.

 

Our significant accounting policies are disclosed in the notes to the audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended October 31, 2020. The following accounting policies have been determined by our management to be the most important to the portrayal of our financial condition and results of operation:

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The Company’s audited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. On consolidation, the Company eliminates all intercompany balances and transactions.

 

Internal-Use Software

 

The Company incurs costs related to the development of its VGrab Applications, SMART Systems, VGrab WeChat Application, and VGrab.com website. Costs incurred in the planning and evaluation stage of internally-developed software and website, as well as development costs where economic benefit cannot be readily determined, are expensed as incurred. Costs incurred and accumulated during the development stage, where economic benefit of the software can be readily determined, are capitalized and included as part of Intangible assets on the balance sheets. Additional improvements to the web site and applications following the initial development stage are expensed as incurred. Capitalized internally-developed software and website development costs will be amortized over their expected economic life using the straight-line method.


-17-


 

Foreign Currency Translation and Transaction

 

The Parent Company’s functional currency is the Canadian dollar, VGrab Malaysia’s functional currency is Malaysian Ringgit, and Vgrab Asia’s functional currency is Hong Kong dollar, the Company’s reporting currency is the United States dollar. VGrab International’s and Duesenberg NV functional and reporting currencies are the United States dollar. The Company translates assets and liabilities to US dollars using year-end exchange rates, and translates revenues and expenses using average exchange rates during the period. Gains and losses arising on translation to the reporting currency are included in the other comprehensive income.

 

Foreign exchange gains and losses on the settlement of foreign currency transactions are included in foreign exchange expense. Except for translations of intercompany balances, all translations of monetary balances to the functional currency at the yearend exchange rate are included in foreign exchange expense. The translations of intercompany balances to the functional currency at the yearend exchange rate are included in accumulated other comprehensive income or loss.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Our financial instruments include cash, accounts payable and accruals as well as amounts due to related parties. We believe the fair value of these financial instruments approximate their carrying values due to their short-term nature.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject us to significant concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and accounts receivable.

 

At October 31, 2020, we had $2,924 in cash on deposit with a large chartered Canadian bank, $8,478 in cash on deposits with a bank in Malaysia, and $313 in cash on deposits with a bank in Hong Kong. As part of our cash management process, we perform periodic evaluations of the relative credit standing of these financial institutions.  We have not experienced any losses in cash balances and do not believe we are exposed to any significant credit risk on our cash.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

To the shareholders and the board of directors of Duesenberg Technologies Inc. (formerly VGrab Communications Inc.)

 

Opinion on the Consolidated Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Duesenberg Technologies Inc. (the “Company”) as of October 31, 2020 and 2019, the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit and cash flows, for the years then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of October 31, 2020 and 2019, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Going Concern

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company has incurred losses in developing its business, and further losses are anticipated. The Company requires additional funds to meet its obligations and the costs of its operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in this regard are described in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty

 

Basis for Opinion

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

 

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

 

Our 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. Our 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. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

OCTOBER 31, 2020

 

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Nature of Operations

 

On November 1, 2019, Duesenberg Technologies Inc. (formerly, Vgrab Communication Inc.) (the “Company”) incorporated Duesenberg Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Duesenberg-Nevada”), with a purpose to undertake the development of Electric Vehicles (“EV”) using the Duesenberg brand and its Vgrab Technology and applications based on the Vgrab technology.

 

On December 23, 2020, the Company changed its name to Duesenberg Technologies Inc. (the “Name Change”). To effect the Name Change, the Company filed a Notice of Alteration with the British Columbia Registrar of Companies. On December 30, 2020, the Company’s common shares commenced trading on the OTC Markets under the new ticker symbol DUSYF.

 

As of the date of these consolidated financial statements, the Company has the following subsidiaries:

 

Name

Incorporation

Incorporation Date

Vgrab International Ltd.

Labuan Companies Act 1990, Federal Territory of Labuan, Malaysia

June 24, 2015

Vgrab Communications Malaysia Sdn Bhd

Malaysia Companies Act 2016

VGrab Asia Limited

Companies Ordinance, Chapter 622 of the Laws of Hong Kong

February 18, 2019

Duesenberg Inc.

Nevada, USA

November 1, 2019

 

The Company’s consolidated financial statements are prepared on a going concern basis in accordance with US generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) which contemplate the realization of assets and discharge of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company has not generated operating revenues to date, and has accumulated losses of $7,750,080 since inception.  The Company has funded its operations through the issuance of capital stock and debt.  Management plans to raise additional funds through equity and/or debt financing.  There is no certainty that further funding will be available as needed.  These factors raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue operating as a going concern.  The Company’s ability to continue its operations as a going concern, realize the carrying value of its assets, and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business is dependent upon its ability to raise new capital sufficient to fund its commitments and ongoing losses, and ultimately on generating profitable operations.

 

UNCERTAINTY DUE TO GLOBAL OUTBREAK OF COVID-19

 

In March of 2020, the World Health Organization declared an outbreak of COVID-19 Global pandemic. The COVID-19 has impacted vast array of businesses through the restrictions put in place by most governments internationally, including the federal, provincial, and municipal governments, regarding travel, business operations and isolation/quarantine orders. At this time, the extent of the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the Company and its operations is unknown and will greatly depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and that cannot be predicted with confidence. These uncertainties arise from the inability to predict the ultimate geographic spread of the disease, and the duration of the outbreak, including the duration of travel restrictions, business closures or disruptions, and quarantine/isolation measures that are currently, or may be put, in place world-wide to fight the virus. While the extent of the impact is unknown, the COVID-19 outbreak may hinder the Company’s ability to raise financing for its research and development initiatives or operating costs due to uncertain capital markets, supply chain disruptions, increased government regulations and other unanticipated factors, all of which may also negatively impact the Company’s business and financial condition.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

These consolidated financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with US GAAP and are presented in United States dollars.

 

Use of Estimates

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain of the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the year. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors 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. Significant areas of estimate include the carrying value of the intangible assets and deferred income tax assets. 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.

 

Reclassifications

Certain prior period amounts in the accompanying audited consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current period’s presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the results of operations or financial position for any period presented.

 

Principles of Consolidation

The audited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. On consolidation, all intercompany balances and transactions are eliminated.

 

Revenue recognition

Revenue is measured based on the amount of consideration that is expected to be received by the Company for providing goods or services under a contract with a customer, which is initially estimated with pricing specified in the contract and adjusted primarily for sales returns, discounts and other credits at contract inception then updated each reporting period, and excludes any sales incentives and amounts collected on behalf of third parties. The Company recognizes revenue when persuasive evidence of a contract with a customer exists and a performance obligation is identified and satisfied as the customer obtains control of the goods or services.

 

Revenue is recognized net of any taxes collected from customers and subsequently remitted to governmental authorities.

 

Internal-Use Software

The Company incurs costs related to the development of its VGrab Application, Vmore Platform and VGrab.com website. Costs incurred in the planning and evaluation stage of internally-developed software and website, as well as development costs where economic benefit cannot be readily determined, are expensed as incurred. Costs incurred and accumulated during the development stage, where economic benefit of the software can be readily determined, are capitalized and included as part of intangible assets on the balance sheets. Additional improvements to the web site following the initial development stage are expensed as incurred. Capitalized internally-developed software and website development costs are amortized over their expected economic life using the straight-line method.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash, accounts payable, amounts due to related parties, and loans payable. The carrying value of these financial instruments approximates their fair value based on their short-term nature. The Company is not exposed to significant interest, exchange or credit risk arising from these financial instruments.


F-7


 

The fair value hierarchy under US GAAP is based on the following three levels of inputs, of which the first two are considered observable and the last unobservable:

 

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

 

Level 2: Observable inputs other than Level I, quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active prices whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable; and;

 

Level 3: Assets and liabilities whose significant value drivers are unobservable by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

Certain assets and liabilities are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis; that is, the instruments are not measured at fair value on an ongoing basis but are subject to fair value adjustments only in certain circumstances (for example, when there is evidence of impairment). There were no assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis during the years ended October 31, 2020 and 2019.

 

Foreign Currency Translation and Transaction

The Company’s functional currency is the Canadian dollar and reporting currency is the United States dollar. The Company translates assets and liabilities to US dollars using year-end exchange rates, and translates revenues and expenses using average exchange rates during the period. Gains and losses arising on translation to the reporting currency are included in the other comprehensive income.

 

Vgrab International Ltd.’s and Duesenberg Inc’s functional currency is the United States dollar, Vgrab Communications Malaysia Sdn Bhd’s functional currency is Malaysian Ringgit, and VGrab Asia Limited’s functional currency is Hong Kong Dollar. Reporting currency for all subsidiaries is the United States dollar.

 

Foreign exchange gains and losses on the settlement of foreign currency transactions are included in foreign exchange expense. Except for translations of intercompany balances, all translations of monetary balances to the functional currency at the yearend exchange rate are included in foreign exchange expense. The translations of intercompany balances to the functional currency at the yearend exchange rate are included in accumulated other comprehensive income or loss.

 

The Company has not, to the date of these consolidated financial statements, entered into derivative instruments to offset the impact of foreign currency fluctuations.

 

Income Taxes

Income taxes are determined using the liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their respective tax basis. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using the enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes that date of enactment.  In addition, a valuation allowance is established to reduce any deferred tax asset for which it is determined that it is more likely than not that some portion of the deferred tax asset will not be realized.

 

The Company accounts for uncertainty in income taxes by applying a two-step method. First, it evaluates whether a tax position has met a more likely than not recognition threshold, and second, it measures that tax position to determine the amount of benefit, if any, to be recognized in the financial statements. The application of this method did not have a material effect on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

 

Loss per Share

The Company presents both basic and diluted loss per share (“LPS”) on the face of the consolidated statements of operations. Basic LPS is computed by dividing net loss available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year. Diluted LPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period including convertible debt, stock options, and warrants, using the treasury stock method. Diluted LPS excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

The Company has established a valuation allowance against its federal and state deferred tax assets due to the uncertainty surrounding the realization of such assets as evidenced by the cumulative losses from operations through October 31, 2020. Management periodically evaluates the recoverability of the deferred tax assets. At such time as it is determined that it is more likely than not that deferred assets are realizable, the valuation allowance will be reduced accordingly and recorded as a tax benefit.

ITEM 9: CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE

 

Not applicable.

 

ITEM 9A: CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this Annual Report.  The evaluation was undertaken in consultation with our accounting personnel. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, due to limited segregation of duties, our disclosure controls and procedures are not effective 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.

 

Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer are responsible for establishing and maintaining internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) promulgated under the Exchange Act as a process designed by, or under the supervision of, our principal executive and principal financial officers and effected by our board of directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

·pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets; 

·provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and our directors; and 

·provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements. 

 

Because of its inherent limitations, our internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. 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.

 

Our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of October 31, 2020. In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework. Based on the assessment, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer determined that, as of October 31, 2020, our internal control over financial reporting was not effective due to limited segregation of duties.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15 (f) under the Exchange Act) during the fourth quarter of the last fiscal year that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Corporate Governance

 

Our board of directors does not have a compensation committee or a nominating committee.  We believe this is appropriate, given the small size of our company and the stage of our development.  We have not adopted any procedures by which our security holders may recommend nominees to our board of directors and that has not changed during the last fiscal year.


-21-


Our audit committee consists of Liong Fook Weng, the Company’s CFO and a director, and Mr. Lim Hun Beng, the Company’s CEO, presidents and a director. None of the members of the Company’s Board of Directors qualify as an “audit committee financial expert”, as defined by Item 407 of Regulation S-K promulgated under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act. We are dependent on financial advice from external financial consulting firm, which we believe is appropriate, given the small size of our company and the stage of our development.

Notes:

1.Under Rule 13d-3, a beneficial owner of a security includes any person who, directly or indirectly, through any contract, arrangement, understanding, relationship, or otherwise has or shares: (i) voting power, which includes the power to vote, or to direct the voting of shares; and (ii) investment power, which includes the power to dispose or direct the disposition of shares. Certain shares may be deemed to be beneficially owned by more than one person (if, for example, persons share the power to vote or the power to dispose of the shares). In addition, shares are deemed to be beneficially owned by a person if the person has the right to acquire the shares (for example, upon exercise of an option) within 60 days of the date as of which the information is provided. In computing the percentage ownership of any person, the amount of shares outstanding is deemed to include the amount of shares beneficially owned by such person (and only such person) by reason of these acquisition rights. As a result, the percentage of outstanding shares of any person as shown in this table does not necessarily reflect the person’s actual ownership or voting power with respect to the number of our shares actually outstanding on January 29, 2021.  As of January 29, 2021, there were 43,892,801 common shares issued and outstanding. 

 

2.Mr. Lim  is the direct beneficial owner of 1,029,803 shares of our common stock. Hampshire Capital Ltd (“Hampshire”) is the direct beneficial owner of 20,000,000 shares of our common stock. Hampshire Avenue is direct beneficial owner of 965,000 shares of our common stock. Hampshire Avenue is the parent company of Hampshire and Hampshire Infotech, and Mr. Lim, as the executive officer and director of Hampshire Avenue, are the indirect beneficial owners of our securities held directly by Hampshire and Hampshire Infotech, with shared voting and dispositive power over those securities.   

 

Changes in Control

 

We are not aware of any arrangements that may result in a change in control.

ITEM 13: CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE

 

Director Independence

 

Our common shares are quoted on the OTC Markets inter-dealer quotation system, which does not have director independence requirements.  For the purpose of determining director independence, we have adopted the independence requirements of Canadian National Instrument 52-110 - Audit Committees (“NI 52-110”) as we are an OTC reporting issuer in the province of British Columbia. NI 52-110 recommends that the Board of Directors of a public company be constituted with a majority of individuals who qualify as “independent” directors. An “independent” director is a director who has no direct or indirect material relationship with us. A material relationship is a relationship, which could, in the view of the Board of Directors, reasonably interfere with the exercise of a director’s independent judgment. None of our directors qualify as independent directors. Mr. Ong, See-Ming holds 2.01% of our common stock. Lim, Hun Beng is not an independent director as, in addition to being our CEO and President, he beneficially holds 50.11% of our common stock. Mr. Liong, Fook Weng is not an independent director because of his position as CFO, Secretary and Treasurer, he also holds 1.6% of our common stock.

 

As a result of our limited operating history and minimal resources, our management believes that it will have difficulty in attracting additional independent directors.  In addition, we would likely be required to obtain directors and officers insurance coverage in order to attract and retain additional independent directors.  Our management believes that the costs associated with maintaining such insurance are prohibitive at this time.

 

Transactions with Related Parties

 

Except as disclosed below, none of the following parties has, during our last two fiscal years, had any material interest, direct or indirect, in any transaction with us or in any presently proposed transaction that has or will materially affect us, in which the Company is a participant and the amount involved exceeds the lesser of $120,000 or 1% of the average of the Company’s total assets for the last two completed fiscal years:

 

(i)Any of our directors or officers; 

(ii)Any person proposed as a nominee for election as a director; 

(iii)Any person who beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, shares carrying more than 10% of the voting rights attached to our outstanding common shares; 

(iv)Any of our promoters; and 

(v)Any relative or spouse of any of the foregoing persons who has the same house as such person. 

 

Hampshire Avenue SDN BHD

 

During the past two fiscal years and up to the date of the filing of this Annual Report on Form 10-K, we have entered into the following related party transactions with Hampshire Avenue SDN BHD, a parent company of Hampshire Infotech, our direct shareholder, controlled by Mr. Lim:
