PROSPECTUS SUMMARY

 

The following is a summary of what we believe to be the most important aspects of our business and the offering of our securities under this prospectus. We urge you to read this entire prospectus, including the more detailed financial statements, notes to the financial statements and other information incorporated by reference from our other filings with the SEC. Each of the risk factors could adversely affect our business, operating results and financial condition, as well as adversely affect the value of an investment in our securities.

 

Overview

 

The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on July 29, 2013. The Company's fiscal year end is August 31.

 

We are an intellectual property (IP) and movie investment and licensing firm, focused on acquisitions and development of various intellectual property, including the acquisition and distribution of movies. In February 2019, we launched a business application (Ai Bian Quan Qiu) through smartphones and official social media accounts utilizing Artificial Intelligence. It is a matching platform for performers, advertiser merchants, and owners for more efficient services. We previously generated revenues through an agency service fee from each matched performance. Due to the quarantine and continuous control imposed by the state and local governments in areas affected by COVID-19, merchant advertising events have been suspended for 7 months. The Company decided to suspend the Ai Bian Quan Qiu platform, which, at the time, created an adverse impact on the business and financial condition and hampered its ability to generate revenue and access sources of liquidity on reasonable terms. As a result, we decide to focus mainly the IP transactions and online video streaming. Our management and operations are from the New York City, the international media center.

 

On April 22, 2020, the Company announced the first phase development of its video streaming service. The online service will be marketed and distributed in the world under the brand name ABQQ.tv. The Company's professional team are sourcing such dramas and films to provide video streaming service on the ABQQ.tv. The video streaming website www.ABQQ.tv was officially launched on December 29, 2020. As of May 31, 2022, the Company acquired 59 movie broadcast rights and a 15-episode TV drama series. The Company will continue marketing and promoting the ABQQ.tv website through Google Ads and acquire additional broadcast rights for movies and TV series, and plan to charge subscription fees once the Company has obtained at least 200 broadcast rights of movie and TV series.

 

On October 21, 2021, the Company entered into a Lease Agreement (the “Lease”) with Martabano Realty Corp. (the “Landlord”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to lease approximately 8,375 square feet of in what is known as the Mt. Kisco Theatre at 144 Main Street, Mount Kisco, New York. The term of the Lease is five years plus free rent period. Commencing in month four, the Company's monthly base rent obligation will be approximately $6,979, which amount will increase in year three to $13,260, year four at $13,658 and the final year at $14,067 in accordance with the terms of the Lease. The Lease contains customary provisions for real property leases of this type, including provisions allowing the Landlord to terminate the Lease upon a default by the Company.

 

The space was formerly used as a theatre with a total of 5 screens and 466 sets for screening films. The former theatre opened on December 21, 1962 with Hayley Millsin “In Search of the Castaways.” It was a replacement for the town’s other movie theatre that burned down. It was later twinned and further divided into 5 screens. It was operated for years by Lesser Theaters, then bought by Clearview Cinemas. In June, 2013 it was taken over by Bow-Tie Cinemas when they took most Clearview locations. It lasted until March, 2020 when it was closed by the Covid-19 pandemic. It was announced in September 2020 that the closure would be permanent. The Company intends to continue to use the space as a theatre with a total of 5 screens and 466 sets for screening films. It’s the first theatre of ABQQ Cinemas in America as the new business line of the Company.

 

On April 27, 2022, we purchased a unique Non-Fungible Token (“NFT”) movie and music marketplace, named as the NFT MMM, from Stareastnet Portal Limited, which including an APP “NFT MMM” on Google Play, and full right to the website: starestnet.io. NFTs are digital assets with a unique identifier that is stored on a blockchain, and NFTs are tradable rights of digital assets (pictures, music, films, and virtual creations) where ownership is recorded in blockchain smart contracts. As the expert of IP transactions specialized in the media industry, we believe that NFTs provide great potential in the intellectual property protection domain. It can promote transparency and liquidity and open the market to innovators who aim to commercialize their IP efficiently. We are actively launching movie and TV drama copyrights NFTs to buyers on the NFT MMM, and expect to generate revenues from the transactions incurred on the platform.

 

Subsequent to quarter end, on June 22, 2022, we entered an agreement with Zestv Studios Limited, a Hong Kong entity 100% owned by our Chief Executive Officer Chiyuan Deng, to transfer the mainland China copyright and broadcast right for the movie “Too Simple” to Zestv Studios Limited. The total transfer price was $750,000.

Covid-19

 

The full extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, operations and financial results will depend on numerous evolving factors that we may not be able to accurately predict at the present time. In an effort to contain COVID-19 or slow its spread, governments around the world have enacted various measures, including orders to close all businesses not deemed “essential,” isolate residents to their homes or places of residence, and practice social distancing when engaging in essential activities. We anticipate that these actions and the global health crisis caused by COVID-19 will negatively impact business activity across the globe. The movie industry in general has changed dramatically as a result of the pandemic restrictions. While movie theaters struggle to stay alive, online streaming programming has increased. We have endeavored to stay with the trend for streaming services to remain competitive. We have experienced the negative impact in our results of operations and in our financial condition for the year ended August, 2020, especially with respect to the movie distribution end of our business. These impacts concern delays in delivering our movies and IP because of health restrictions imposed on certain public events that concern our business, including, among other things, theaters, indoor and outdoor performances, filming restrictions, music festivals, concerts and other such events, Some of these restrictions include pandemic government mandated shutdowns and others restrictions on capacity gathered at these events, with some jurisdictions imposing fines or revocation of business licensing, and other restrictions. As a result of these factors, our revenue was reduced from March to May of 2020. With immediate closures, the resultant industry and business specific delays have negatively affected our company.

 

We plan to focus on the video streaming and other web-based applications and expand our business into those areas that we believe we situate the company for continued and increased revenues. As the pandemic is forecasted to worsen in the United States and other areas around the globe, we believe that the demand for our IP, online products and services offerings increases. While we cannot guarantee that the negative effects of the pandemic will not interfere with our ability to generate revenues, we intend to strengthen our position in this dynamic market and position the company to best suit its stockholders.

 

Specific to our company operations, during the pandemic period, we have enacted precautionary measures to protect the health and safety of our employees and partners. These measures include closing our office, having employees work from home, and eliminating all travel. While having employees work from home may have a negative impact on efficiency and may result in negligible increases in costs, it does have an impact on our ability to execute on our agreements to deliver our core products.

 

We will continue to actively monitor the situation and may take further actions that alter our business operations as may be required by federal, state, local or foreign authorities, or that we determine are in the best interests of our employees, customers, partners and stockholders. It is not clear what the potential effects any such alterations or modifications may have on our business, including the effects on our customers, partners, or vendors, or on our financial results.

 

Description of the Purchase Agreement and the Common Stock Purchase Warrant

 

On August 2, 2022, we entered into a Common Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Alumni Capital LP, a Delaware limited partnership. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company has the right, but not the obligation to cause Alumni Capital to purchase up to $1 million of our common stock at the Investment Amount (defined below) during the period beginning on the execution date of the Purchase Agreement and ending on the earlier of (i) the date on which the Alumni Capital has purchased $1 million of our common stock shares pursuant to the Purchase Agreement or (ii) December 31, 2022.

 

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the “Investment Amount” means seventy five percent (75%) of the lowest traded price of the Common Stock five Business Days prior to the Closing of a Purchase Notice. No Purchase Notice will be made without an effective registration statement and no Purchase Notice will be in an amount less than twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) or greater than five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000).

 

The Purchase Agreement provides that the number of our common stock shares to be sold to Alumni Capital will not exceed the number of shares that, when aggregated together with all other shares of our common stock which the investor is deemed to beneficially own, would result in the investor owning more than 9.99% of our outstanding common stock.

 

In consideration for Alumni Capital’s execution and performance under the Purchase Agreement, the Company issued to Alumni Capital a Common Stock Purchase Warrant dated August 2, 2022 to purchase 50,000,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.02 per share.

 

The Purchase Agreement contains certain representations, warranties, covenants and events of default. The Closing occurred following the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

RISK FACTORS

 

This investment has a high degree of risk. Before you invest you should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described below and the other information in this prospectus. If any of the following risks actually occur, our business, operating results and financial condition could be harmed and the value of our stock could go down. This means you could lose all or a part of your investment.

 

Risk Related to Covid 19

 

Our business and future operations may be adversely affected by epidemics and pandemics, such as the recent COVID-19 outbreak.

 

We may face risks related to health epidemics and pandemics or other outbreaks of communicable diseases, which could result in a widespread health crisis that could adversely affect general commercial activity and the economies and financial markets of the country as a whole. For example, the recent outbreak of COVID-19, which began in China, has been declared by the World Health Organization to be a “pandemic,” has spread across the globe, including the United States of America.

 

A health epidemic or pandemic or other outbreak of communicable diseases, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic, poses the risk that we, or potential business partners may be disrupted or prevented from conducting business activities for certain periods of time, the durations of which are uncertain, and may otherwise experience significant impairments of business activities, including due to, among other things, operational shutdowns or suspensions that may be requested or mandated by national or local governmental authorities or self-imposed by us, our customers or other business partners. While it is not possible at this time to estimate the impact that COVID-19 could have on our business, potential customers, potential suppliers or other current or potential business partners, the continued spread of COVID-19, the measures taken by the local and federal government, actions taken to protect employees, and the impact of the pandemic on various business activities could adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has required our management to focus their attention primarily on responding to the challenges presented by the pandemic, including ensuring continuous operations, and adjusting our operations to address changes in the virtual payments industry. Due to measures imposed by the local governments in areas affected by COVID-19, businesses have been suspended due to quarantine intended to contain this outbreak and many people have been forced to work from home in those areas. As a result, advertiser merchants orders for event has been suspended, which has had an adverse impact on our business and financial condition and has hampered our ability to generate revenue and access usual sources of liquidity on reasonable terms.

 

Risks Related to Our Financial Condition

 

Because we have a limited operating history, you may not be able to accurately evaluate our operations.

 

We have had limited operations to date and have generated limited revenues. Therefore, we have a limited operating history upon which to evaluate the merits of investing in our company. Potential investors should be aware of the difficulties normally encountered by new companies and the high rate of failure of such enterprises. The likelihood of success must be considered in light of the problems, expenses, difficulties, complications and delays encountered in connection with the operations that we plan to undertake. These potential problems include, but are not limited to, unanticipated problems relating to the ability to generate sufficient cash flow to operate our business, and additional costs and expenses that may exceed current estimates. We expect to incur significant losses into the foreseeable future. We recognize that if the effectiveness of our business plan is not forthcoming, we will not be able to continue business operations. There is no history upon which to base any assumption as to the likelihood that we will prove successful, and it is doubtful that we will continue to generate operating revenues or ever achieve profitable operations. If we are unsuccessful in addressing these risks, our business will most likely fail.

 

 5 

 

We are dependent on outside financing for continuation of our operations.

 

Because we have generated limited revenues and currently operate at a loss, we are completely dependent on the continued availability of financing in order to continue our business. There can be no assurance that financing sufficient to enable us to continue our operations will be available to us in the future.

 

We have sold several convertible promissory notes with discount to market conversions that have the effect of driving down our stock price, from which we may never recover.

 

In 2020 and 2021, we have issued several convertible promissory notes to accredited investors. These notes contain terms that allow for discounted conversions from the company’s stock price, with most at a 40% discount. These notes also contain strict terms for compliance and penalty provisions that could cost us more than the principal and accrued interest. They also have most favored nation clauses that force us to offer more favorable terms in subsequent offerings. If we are unable to secure a better form of financing, or pay off the notes before they convert, we could experience a significant drop in our stock price and face other negative consequences. Because we are penny stock, and there is a limited market for our shares, investor may not be able to recoup their investment and noteholders may not be able to sell their converted shares into the market. We may be forced to pay off the convertible debt, with existing or raised funds, which might not be available. We could be at risk of default with the noteholders. If that happens, we may be forced to defend the lawsuits, liquidate assets, etc., which would be costly and turn management’s attention away from the business. We could go out of business and you could lose your entire investment.

 

Risks Related to Legal Uncertainty

 

Compliance with changing regulation of corporate governance and public disclosure may result in additional expenses.

 

Changing laws, regulations and standards relating to corporate governance and public disclosure, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and new SEC regulations, are creating uncertainty for companies such as ours. These new or changed laws, regulations and standards are subject to varying interpretations in many cases due to their lack of specificity, and as a result, their application in practice may evolve over time as new guidance is provided by regulatory and governing bodies, which could result in continuing uncertainty regarding compliance matters and higher costs necessitated by ongoing revisions to disclosure and governance practices. We are committed to maintaining high standards of corporate governance and public disclosure. As a result, we intend to invest resources to comply with evolving laws, regulations and standards, and this investment may result in increased general and administrative expenses and a diversion of management time and attention from revenue-generating activities to compliance activities. If our efforts to comply with new or changed laws, regulations and standards differ from the activities intended by regulatory or governing bodies due to ambiguities related to practice, our reputation may be harmed.

 

If we fail to comply with the new rules under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act related to accounting controls and procedures, or if material weaknesses or other deficiencies are discovered in our internal accounting procedures, our stock price could decline significantly.

 

We are exposed to potential risks from legislation requiring companies to evaluate internal controls under Section 404(a) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. As a smaller reporting company we will be exempt from auditor attestation requirements concerning any such report so long as we are a smaller reporting company. We have not yet evaluated whether our internal control procedures are effective and therefore there is a greater likelihood of material weaknesses in our internal controls, which could lead to misstatements or omissions in our reported financial statements as compared to issuers that have conducted such evaluations.

 

If material weaknesses and deficiencies are detected, it could cause investors to lose confidence in our company and result in a decline in our stock price and consequently affect our financial condition. In addition, if we fail to achieve and maintain the adequacy of our internal controls, we may not be able to ensure that we can conclude on an ongoing basis that we have effective internal controls over financial reporting in accordance with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Moreover, effective internal controls, particularly those related to revenue recognition, are necessary for us to produce reliable financial reports and are important to helping prevent financial fraud. If we cannot provide reliable financial reports or prevent fraud, our business and operating results could be harmed, investors could lose confidence in our reported financial information, and the trading price of our common stock could drop significantly. In addition, we cannot be certain that additional material weaknesses or significant deficiencies in our internal controls will not be discovered in the future.

Risks Associated with Management and Control Persons

 

If we fail to attract and retain qualified senior executive and key technical personnel, our business will not be able to expand.

 

We are dependent on the continued availability of Chiyuan Deng, and the availability of new employees to implement our business plans. The market for skilled employees is highly competitive, especially for employees in the service industry. Although we expect that our compensation programs will be intended to attract and retain the employees required for us to be successful, there can be no assurance that we will be able to retain the services of all our key employees or a sufficient number to execute our plans, nor can there be any assurance we will be able to continue to attract new employees as required.

 

Our personnel may voluntarily terminate their relationship with us at any time, and competition for qualified personnel is intense. The process of locating additional personnel with the combination of skills and attributes required to carry out our strategy could be lengthy, costly and disruptive.

 

If we lose the services of key personnel, or fail to replace the services of key personnel who depart, we could experience a severe negative effect on our financial results and stock price. In addition, there is intense competition for highly qualified bilingual and “people friendly” personnel in the locations where we principally operate. The loss of the services of any key personnel, marketing or other personnel or our failure to attract, integrate, motivate and retain additional key employees could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating and financial results and stock price.

 

Mr. Deng owns a significant percentage of the voting power of our stock and will be able to exercise significant influence over the composition of our Board of Directors, matters subject to stockholder approval and our operations.

 

As of the date of this filing, Chiyuan Deng owns 100,000 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock, which has the voting power of 51% of the total vote of shareholders. As a result of his equity ownership interest, voting power and the contractual rights described above, Mr. Deng currently is in a position to influence, subject to our organizational documents and Nevada law, the composition of our Board of Directors and the outcome of corporate actions requiring stockholder approval, such as mergers, business combinations and dispositions of assets, among other corporate transactions. In addition, this concentration of voting power could discourage others from initiating a potential merger, takeover or other change of control transaction that may otherwise be beneficial to us, which could adversely affect the market price of our securities.

 

Risks Related to Our Securities and the Over the Counter Market

 

If a market for our common stock does not develop, shareholders may be unable to sell their shares.

 

Our common stock is quoted under the symbol “ABQQ” on the OTCPink operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc, an electronic inter-dealer quotation medium for equity securities. We do not currently have an active trading market. There can be no assurance that an active and liquid trading market will develop or, if developed, that it will be sustained.

 

Our securities are very thinly traded. Accordingly, it may be difficult to sell shares of our common stock without significantly depressing the value of the stock. Unless we are successful in developing continued investor interest in our stock, sales of our stock could continue to result in major fluctuations in the price of the stock.

 

Our common stock price may be volatile and could fluctuate widely in price, which could result in substantial losses for investors.

The market price of our common stock is likely to be highly volatile and could fluctuate widely in price in response to various factors, many of which are beyond our control, including:

 

 §technological innovations or new products and services by us or our competitors;

 

 §government regulation of our products and services;

 

 §the establishment of partnerships with other technology companies;

 

 §intellectual property disputes;

 

 §additions or departures of key personnel;

 

 §sales of our common stock

 

 §our ability to integrate operations, technology, products and services;

 

 §our ability to execute our business plan;

 

 §operating results below expectations;

 

 §loss of any strategic relationship;

 

 §industry developments;

 

 §economic and other external factors; and

 

 §period to period fluctuations in our financial results.

 

Because we have nominal revenues to date, you should consider any one of these factors to be material. Our stock price may fluctuate widely as a result of any of the above.

 

In addition, the securities markets have from time to time experienced significant price and volume fluctuations that are unrelated to the operating performance of particular companies. These market fluctuations may also materially and adversely affect the market price of our common stock.

 

As a new investor, you will experience substantial dilution as a result of future equity issuances.

 

In the event we are required to raise additional capital we may do so by selling additional shares of common stock thereby diluting the shares and ownership interests of existing shareholders.

Our stock is a penny stock. Trading of our stock may be restricted by the SEC’s penny stock regulations and FINRA’s sales practice requirements, which may limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our stock.

   

Our stock is a penny stock. The Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted Rule 15g-9 which generally defines “penny stock” to be any equity security that has a market price (as defined) less than $5.00 per share or an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. Our securities are covered by the penny stock rules, which impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and “accredited investors”. The term “accredited investor” refers generally to institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with a net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouse. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document in a form prepared by the SEC which provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. The bid and offer quotations, and the broker-dealer and salesperson compensation information, must be given to the customer orally or in writing prior to effecting the transaction and must be given to the customer in writing before or with the customer’s confirmation. In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from these 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 agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for the stock that is subject to these penny stock rules. Consequently, these penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to trade our securities. We believe that the penny stock rules discourage investor interest in, and limit the marketability of, our common stock.

 

In addition to the “penny stock” rules promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority has adopted rules that require that in recommending an investment to a customer, a broker-dealer must have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer. Prior to recommending speculative low priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer’s financial status, tax status, investment objectives and other information. Under interpretations of these rules, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority believes that there is a high probability that speculative low-priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’ requirements make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend that their customers buy our common stock, which may limit your ability to buy and sell our stock.

 

Rule 144 sales in the future may have a depressive effect on our stock price as an increase in supply of shares for sale, with no corresponding increase in demand will cause prices to fall.

 

All of the outstanding shares of common stock held by the present officers, directors, and affiliate stockholders are “restricted securities” within the meaning of Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. As restricted shares, these shares may be resold only pursuant to an effective registration statement or under the requirements of Rule 144 or other applicable exemptions from registration under the Act and as required under applicable state securities laws. Rule 144 provides in essence that a person who is an affiliate or officer or director who has held restricted securities for six months may, under certain conditions, sell every three months, in brokerage transactions, a number of shares that does not exceed the greater of 1.0% of a company’s outstanding common stock. There is no limit on the amount of restricted securities that may be sold by a non-affiliate after the owner has held the restricted securities for a period of six months if the company is a current reporting company under the 1934 Act. A sale under Rule 144 or under any other exemption from the Act, if available, or pursuant to subsequent registration of shares of common stock of present stockholders, may have a depressive effect upon the price of the common stock in any market that may develop.

FINRA sales practice requirements may also limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our stock.

 

In addition to the “penny stock” rules described above, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has adopted rules that require that in recommending an investment to a customer, a broker-dealer must have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer. Prior to recommending speculative low priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer’s financial status, tax status, investment objectives and other information. Under interpretations of these rules, FINRA believes that there is a high probability that speculative low priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. FINRA requirements make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend that their customers buy our common stock, which may limit your ability to buy and sell our stock and have an adverse effect on the market for our shares.

 

We do not intend to pay dividends.

 

We do not anticipate paying cash dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future. We may not have sufficient funds to legally pay dividends. Even if funds are legally available to pay dividends, we may nevertheless decide in our sole discretion not to pay dividends. The declaration, payment and amount of any future dividends will be made at the discretion of the board of directors, and will depend upon, among other things, the results of our operations, cash flows and financial condition, operating and capital requirements, and other factors our board of directors may consider relevant. There is no assurance that we will pay any dividends in the future, and, if dividends are rapid, there is no assurance with respect to the amount of any such dividend.

 

We have the right to issue additional common stock and preferred stock without consent of shareholders. This would have the effect of diluting investors’ ownership and could decrease the value of their investment.

 

We are authorized to issue up to 1,000,000,000 shares of common stock, of which there were 376,758,463 shares issued and outstanding as of August 2, 2022. In addition, our articles of incorporation authorizes the issuance of up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, the rights, preferences, designations and limitations of which may be set by the Board of Directors. We have designated and authorized, one 100,000 share of Series A Preferred Stock, 20,000 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, 1,000,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock, and 5,075 shares of Series D Preferred Stock. As of August 2, 2022, there were issued and outstanding (i) 100,000 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock, (ii) 20,000 shares of our Series B Preferred Stock, (iii) 365,349 shares of our Series C Preferred Stock, and (iv) 0 shares of our Series D Convertible Preferred Stock.

 

The shares of authorized but undesignated preferred stock may be issued upon filing of an amended certificate of incorporation and the payment of required fees; no further shareholder action is required. If issued, the rights, preferences, designations and limitations of such preferred stock would be set by our Board and could operate to the disadvantage of the outstanding common stock. Such terms could include, among others, preferences as to dividends and distributions on liquidation. We have designated four series of preferred stock, four of which have shares issued and outstanding. A description of the terms, rights and preferences of these series of preferred stock are described under “Description of Securities” beginning on page 3.

 

Risks Related to the Offering

 

Our existing stockholders may experience significant dilution from the sale of our common stock pursuant to the Alumni Capital Purchase Agreement.

 

The sale of our common stock to Alumni Capital in accordance with the Purchase Agreement may have a dilutive impact on our shareholders. As a result, the market price of our common stock could decline. In addition, the lower our stock price is at the time we exercise our put options, the more shares of our common stock we will have to issue to Alumni Capital in order to exercise a put under the Purchase Agreement. If our stock price decreases, then our existing shareholders would experience greater dilution for any given dollar amount raised through the offering.

 

The perceived risk of dilution may cause our stockholders to sell their shares, which may cause a decline in the price of our common stock. Moreover, the perceived risk of dilution and the resulting downward pressure on our stock price could encourage investors to engage in short sales of our common stock. By increasing the number of shares offered for sale, material amounts of short selling could further contribute to progressive price declines in our common stock.

The issuance of shares pursuant to the Alumni Capital Purchase Agreement may have significant dilutive effect.

 

Depending on the number of shares we issue pursuant to the Alumni Capital Purchase Agreement, it could have a significant dilutive effect upon our existing shareholders. Although the number of shares that we may issue pursuant to the Purchase Agreement will vary based on our stock price (the higher our stock price, the less shares we have to issue), there may be a potential dilutive effect to our shareholders, based on different potential future stock prices, if the full amount of the

  

Purchase Agreement is realized. Dilution is based upon common stock put to Alumni Capital and the stock price discounted to seventy five percent (75%) of the lowest traded price of the Common Stock five Business Days prior to the Closing of a Purchase Notice during which the Purchase Price of the Common Stock is valued.

 

Alumni Capital will pay less than the then-prevailing market price of our common stock which could cause the price of our common stock to decline.

 

Our common stock to be issued under the Alumni Capital Purchase Agreement will be purchased at 75% of the lowest traded price of the Common Stock five Business Days prior to the Closing of a Purchase Notice.

 

Alumni Capital has a financial incentive to sell our shares immediately upon receiving them to realize the profit between the discounted price and the market price. If Alumni Capital sells our shares, the price of our common stock may decrease. If our stock price decreases, Alumni Capital may have further incentive to sell such shares. Accordingly, the discounted sales price in the Purchase Agreement may cause the price of our common stock to decline.

 

We may not have access to the full amount under the Purchase Agreement.

 

The lowest traded price of the Company’s common stock during the five (5) consecutive trading day period immediately preceding the filing of this Registration Statement was approximately $0.0046. At that price we would be able to sell shares to Alumni Capital under the Purchase Agreement at the discounted price of $0.00345. At that discounted price, the 200,000,000 shares of Common Stock to be issued in connection with the Purchase Agreement would only represent approximately $690,000, which is far below $1,000,000 (the full amount of the Purchase Agreement).

 

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

All statements other than statements of historical facts contained in or incorporated by reference into this prospectus, including statements regarding our future results of operations and financial position, business strategy, prospective products, product approvals, research and development costs, commercialization plans and timing, other plans and objectives of management for future operations, and future results of current and anticipated products are forward-looking statements. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.

 

In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “aim,” “anticipate,” “could,” “intend,” “target,” “project,” “contemplate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential” or “continue” or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions. The forward-looking statements in this prospectus are only predictions. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that we believe may affect our business, financial condition and results of operations. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this prospectus and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions including those listed in the ‘‘Risk Factors’’ incorporated by reference into this prospectus from our Annual Report on Form 10-K, as updated by subsequent reports. Forward-looking statements are subject to inherent risks and uncertainties, some of which cannot be predicted or quantified and some of which are beyond our control. The events and circumstances reflected in our forward-looking statements may not be achieved or occur and actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements.

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

We will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale of shares of our Common Stock in this offering. The Selling Stockholder will receive all of the proceeds from this offering. However, we may receive up to an aggregate of $1 million in proceeds from the sale of our Common Stock to Alumni Capital pursuant to the Equity Line and up to $1 million in proceeds from the exercise of the Common Stock Purchase Warrant.

 

The Selling Stockholders will pay any underwriting discounts and commissions and expenses incurred by the Selling Stockholders for brokerage, accounting, tax or legal services or any other expenses incurred by the Selling Stockholders in disposing of the shares. We will bear all other costs, fees and expenses incurred in effecting the registration of the shares covered by this prospectus, including, without limitation, all registration and filing fees, fees and expenses of our counsel, certain expenses of counsel to the Selling Stockholder and our independent registered public accountants.

  

DILUTION

 

The sale of our common stock to Alumni Capital in accordance with the Purchase Agreement and Common Stock Warrant will have a dilutive impact on our stockholders. As a result, our net loss per share could increase in future periods and the market price of our common stock could decline. In addition, the lower our stock price is at the time we exercise our Purchase Notice, the more shares of our common stock we will have to issue to Alumni Capital in order to drawdown pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. If our stock price decreases during the pricing period, then our existing stockholders would experience greater dilution.

Broker-dealers engaged by the Selling Stockholder may arrange for other brokers-dealers to participate in sales. Broker-dealers may receive commissions or discounts from the Selling Stockholder (or, if any broker- dealer acts as agent for the purchaser of securities, from the purchaser) in amounts to be negotiated, provided such amounts are in compliance with FINRA Rule 2121. Discounts, concessions, commissions and similar selling expenses, if any, that can be attributed to the sale of Common Stock will be paid by the selling stockholder and/or the purchasers.

 

The Selling Stockholder and any broker-dealers or agents that are involved in selling the shares are deemed to be “underwriters” within the meaning of the Securities Act in connection with such sales. With respect to any shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the Equity Line are resold hereunder, the Selling Stockholder is deemed as an underwriter and any broker-dealers that are involved in selling such shares is deemed as an underwriter. In such event, any commissions received by such broker-dealers or agents and any profit on the resale of the shares purchased by them may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act, and such broker-dealers or agents will be subject to the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act.

We are required to pay certain fees and expenses incurred by us incident to the registration of the shares covered by this prospectus. We have agreed to indemnify the selling stockholders against certain losses, claims, damages and liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933.

Neither the Purchase Agreement with Alumni Capital nor any rights of the parties under the Purchase Agreement with Alumni Capital may be assigned or delegated to any other person.

 

We have entered into an agreement with Alumni Capital to keep this prospectus effective until Alumni Capital has sold all of the common shares purchased by it under the Purchase Agreement and has no right to acquire any additional shares of common stock under the Purchase Agreement.

 

Under applicable rules and regulations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, any person engaged in the distribution of the resale shares may not simultaneously engage in market making activities with respect to the common stock for the applicable restricted period, as defined in Regulation M, prior to the commencement of the distribution. In addition, the selling stockholder will be subject to applicable provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules and regulations thereunder, including Regulation M, which may limit the timing of purchases and sales of shares of the common stock by the Selling Stockholder or any other person. We will make copies of this prospectus available to the Selling Stockholder.

 §If all of the Series D Preferred Stock are redeemed within ninety (90) calendar days from the issuance date thereof, the Company shall have the right to redeem the Series D Preferred Stock upon three (3) business days’ of written notice at a price equal to one hundred and fifteen percent (115%) of the Stated Value together with any accrued but unpaid dividends.

Anti-Takeover Effects of Various Provisions of Nevada Law

 

Provisions of the Nevada Revised Statutes, our articles of incorporation, as amended, and bylaws could make it more difficult to acquire us by means of a tender offer, a proxy contest or otherwise, or to remove incumbent officers and directors. These provisions, summarized below, would be expected to discourage certain types of takeover practices and takeover bids our Board may consider inadequate and to encourage persons seeking to acquire control of us to first negotiate with us. We believe that the benefits of increased protection of our ability to negotiate with the proponent of an unfriendly or unsolicited proposal to acquire or restructure us will outweigh the disadvantages of discouraging takeover or acquisition proposals because, among other things, negotiation of these proposals could result in an improvement of their terms.

 

Blank Check Preferred

 

Our articles of incorporation permit our Board to issue preferred stock with voting, conversion and exchange rights that could negatively affect the voting power or other rights of our Common Stockholders. The issuance of our preferred stock could delay or prevent a change of control of our Company.

 

Amendments to our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws

 

Under the Nevada Revised Statutes, our articles of incorporation may not be amended by stockholder action alone.

 

Nevada Anti-Takeover Statute

 

We may be subject to Nevada’s Combination with Interested Stockholders Statute (Nevada Corporation Law Sections 78.411-78.444) which prohibits an “interested stockholder” from entering into a “combination” with the corporation, unless certain conditions are met. An “interested stockholder” is a person who, together with affiliates and associates, beneficially owns (or within the prior two years, did beneficially own) 10% or more of the corporation’s capital stock entitled to vote. 

Limitations on Liability and Indemnification of Officers and Directors

 

The Nevada Revised Statutes limits or eliminates the personal liability of directors to corporations and their stockholders for monetary damages for breaches of directors’ fiduciary duties as directors.

 

The limitation of liability and indemnification provisions under the Nevada Revised Statutes and in our articles of incorporation and bylaws may discourage stockholders from bringing a lawsuit against directors for breach of their fiduciary duties. These provisions may also have the effect of reducing the likelihood of derivative litigation against directors and officers, even though such an action, if successful, might otherwise benefit us and our stockholders. However, these provisions do not limit or eliminate our rights, or those of any stockholder, to seek non-monetary relief such as injunction or rescission in the event of a breach of a director’s fiduciary duties. Moreover, the provisions do not alter the liability of directors under the federal securities laws. In addition, your investment may be adversely affected to the extent that, in a class action or direct suit, we pay the costs of settlement and damage awards against directors and officers pursuant to these indemnification provisions.

Authorized but Unissued Shares

 

Our authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock and preferred stock will be available for future issuance without stockholder approval, except as may be required under the listing rules of any stock exchange on which our Common Stock is then listed. We may use additional shares for a variety of corporate purposes, including future public offerings to raise additional capital, corporate acquisitions and employee benefit plans. The existence of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock and preferred stock could render more difficult or discourage an attempt to obtain control of us by means of a proxy contest, tender offer, merger or otherwise.

 

Penny Stock Considerations

 

Our shares will be “penny stocks” as that term is generally defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to mean equity securities with a price of less than $5.00 per share. Thus, our shares will be subject to rules that impose sales practice and disclosure requirements on broker-dealers who engage in certain transactions involving a penny stock. Under the penny stock regulations, a broker-dealer selling a penny stock to anyone other than an established customer must make a special suitability determination regarding the purchaser and must receive the purchaser’s written consent to the transaction prior to the sale, unless the broker-dealer is otherwise exempt.

 

In addition, under the penny stock regulations, the broker-dealer is required to:

 

 Deliver, prior to any transaction involving a penny stock, a disclosure schedule prepared by the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the penny stock market, unless the broker-dealer or the transaction is otherwise exempt;

 

 Disclose commissions payable to the broker-dealer and our registered representatives and current bid and offer quotations for the securities;

 

 Send monthly statements disclosing recent price information pertaining to the penny stock held in a customer’s account, the account’s value, and information regarding the limited market in penny stocks; and

 

 Make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction, prior to conducting any penny stock transaction in the customer’s account.

 

Because of these regulations, broker-dealers may encounter difficulties in their attempt to sell shares of our common stock, which may affect the ability of selling shareholders or other holders to sell their shares in the secondary market and have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market. These additional sales practice and disclosure requirements could impede the sale of our securities, if our securities become publicly traded. In addition, the liquidity for our securities may be decreased, with a corresponding decrease in the price of our securities. Our shares in all probability will be subject to such penny stock rules and our shareholders will, in all likelihood, find it difficult to sell their securities.

BUSINESS

 

Company Overview 

 

We are an intellectual property (IP) and movie investment and licensing firm, focused on acquisitions and development of various intellectual property, including the acquisition and distribution of movies. In February 2019, we launched a business application (Ai Bian Quan Qiu) through smartphones and official social media accounts utilizing Artificial Intelligence. It is a matching platform for performers, advertiser merchants, and owners for more efficient services. We previously generated revenues through an agency service fee from each matched performance. Due to the quarantine and continuous control imposed by the state and local governments in areas affected by COVID-19, merchant advertising events have been suspended for 7 months. The Company decided to suspend the Ai Bian Quan Qiu platform, which, at the time, created an adverse impact on the business and financial condition and hampered its ability to generate revenue and access sources of liquidity on reasonable terms. As a result, we decide to focus mainly the IP transactions and online video streaming. Our management and operations are from the New York City, the international media center.

On April 22, 2020, the Company announced the first phase development of its video streaming service. The online service will be marketed and distributed in the world under the brand name ABQQ.tv. The Company's professional team are sourcing such dramas and films to provide video streaming service on the ABQQ.tv. The video streaming website www.ABQQ.tv was officially launched on December 29, 2020. As of May 31, 2022, the Company acquired 59 movie broadcast rights and a 15-episode TV drama series. The Company will continue marketing and promoting the ABQQ.tv website through Google Ads and acquire additional broadcast rights for movies and TV series, and plan to charge subscription fees once the Company has obtained at least 200 broadcast rights of movie and TV series.

 

On October 21, 2021, the Company entered into a Lease Agreement (the “Lease”) with Martabano Realty Corp. (the “Landlord”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to lease approximately 8,375 square feet of in what is known as the Mt. Kisco Theatre at 144 Main Street, Mount Kisco, New York. The term of the Lease is five years plus free rent period. Commencing in month four, the Company's monthly base rent obligation will be approximately $6,979, which amount will increase in year three to $13,260, year four at $13,658 and the final year at $14,067 in accordance with the terms of the Lease. The Lease contains customary provisions for real property leases of this type, including provisions allowing the Landlord to terminate the Lease upon a default by the Company.

 

The space was formerly used as a theatre with a total of 5 screens and 466 sets for screening films. The former theatre opened on December 21, 1962 with Hayley Millsin “In Search of the Castaways.” It was a replacement for the town’s other movie theatre that burned down. It was later twinned and further divided into 5 screens. It was operated for years by Lesser Theaters, then bought by Clearview Cinemas. In June, 2013 it was taken over by Bow-Tie Cinemas when they took most Clearview locations. It lasted until March, 2020 when it was closed by the Covid-19 pandemic. It was announced in September 2020 that the closure would be permanent. The Company intends to continue to use the space as a theatre with a total of 5 screens and 466 sets for screening films. It’s the first theatre of ABQQ Cinemas in America as the new business line of the Company.

 

On April 27, 2022, we purchased a unique Non-Fungible Token (“NFT”) movie and music marketplace, named as the NFT MMM, from Stareastnet Portal Limited, which including an APP “NFT MMM” on Google Play, and full right to the website: stareastnet.io. NFTs are digital assets with a unique identifier that is stored on a blockchain, and NFTs are tradable rights of digital assets (pictures, music, films, and virtual creations) where ownership is recorded in blockchain smart contracts. As the expert of IP transactions specialized in the media industry, we believe that NFTs provide great potential in the intellectual property protection domain. It can promote transparency and liquidity and open the market to innovators who aim to commercialize their IP efficiently. We are actively launching movie and TV drama copyrights NFTs to buyers on the NFT MMM, and expect to generate revenues from the transactions incurred on the platform.

 

Subsequent to quarter end, on June 22, 2022, we entered an agreement with Zestv Studios Limited, a Hong Kong entity 100% owned by our Chief Executive Officer Chiyuan Deng, to transfer the mainland China copyright and broadcast right for the movie “Too Simple” to Zestv Studios Limited. The total transfer price was $750,000.

MARKET PRICE OF THE REGISTRANT’S COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDERS MATTERS

 

Market Information

 

Our common stock is quoted under the symbol “ABQQ” on the OTCPink operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc. 

 

There is currently no active trading market for our securities. There is no assurance that a regular trading market will develop, or if developed, that it will be sustained. Therefore, a shareholder may be unable to resell his securities in our company.

 

Penny Stock

 

The Securities Exchange Commission 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 system.  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 Commission, that: (a) contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading;(b) contains a description of the broker's or dealer's duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to a violation to such duties or other requirements of Securities' laws; (c) contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and the significance of the spread between the bid and ask  price;(d) contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions;(e) defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and;(f) contains such other information and is in such form, including language, type, size and format, as the Commission shall require by rule or regulation.

 

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

 

These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity in the secondary market for our stock if it becomes subject to these penny stock rules. Therefore, because our common stock is subject to the penny stock rules, stockholders may have difficulty selling those securities.

 

Holders of Our Common Stock 

 

As of August 2, 2022, we had 376,758,463 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding, held by approximately 559 shareholders of record, with others holding shares in street name.

 

Dividends

 

We have never paid cash dividends on our common stock and do not anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. The payment of cash dividends on our common stock will depend on earnings, financial condition and other business and economic factors at such time as the board of directors may consider relevant. If we do not pay cash dividends, our common stock may be less valuable because a return on your investment will only occur if its stock price appreciates.

COVID-19

 

The full extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, operations and financial results will depend on numerous evolving factors that we may not be able to accurately predict at the present time. In an effort to contain COVID-19 or slow its spread, governments around the world have enacted various measures, including orders to close all businesses not deemed “essential,” isolate residents to their homes or places of residence, and practice social distancing when engaging in essential activities. We anticipate that these actions and the global health crisis caused by COVID-19 will negatively impact business activity across the globe. The movie industry in general has changed dramatically as a result of the pandemic restrictions. While movie theaters struggle to stay alive, online streaming programming has increased. We have endeavored to stay with the trend for streaming services to remain competitive. We have experienced the negative impact in our results of operations and in our financial condition for the year ended August, 2020, especially with respect to the movie distribution end of our business. These impacts concern delays in delivering our movies and IP because of health restrictions imposed on certain public events that concern our business, including, among other things, theaters, indoor and outdoor performances, filming restrictions, music festivals, concerts and other such events, Some of these restrictions include pandemic government mandated shutdowns and others restrictions on capacity gathered at these events, with some jurisdictions imposing fines or revocation of business licensing, and other restrictions. As a result of these factors, our revenue was reduced from March to May of 2020. With immediate closures, the resultant industry and business specific delays have negatively affected our company.

 

We plan to focus on the video streaming and other web-based applications and expand our business into those areas that we believe will situate the company for continued and increased revenues. As the pandemic is forecasted to worsen in the United States and other areas around the globe, we believe that the demand for our IP, online products and services offerings increases. While we cannot guarantee that the negative effects of the pandemic will not interfere with our ability to generate revenues, we intend to strengthen our position in this dynamic market and position the company to best suit its shareholders.

 

Specific to our company operations, during the pandemic period, we have enacted precautionary measures to protect the health and safety of our employees and partners. These measures include closing our office, having employees work from home, and eliminating all travel. While having employees work from home may have a negative impact on efficiency and may result in negligible increases in costs, it does have an impact on our ability to execute on our agreements to deliver our core products.

 

We will continue to actively monitor the situation and may take further actions that alter our business operations as may be required by federal, state, local or foreign authorities, or that we determine are in the best interests of our employees, customers, partners and stockholders. It is not clear what the potential effects any such alterations or modifications may have on our business, including the effects on our customers, partners, or vendors, or on our financial results.

 

Results of Operations for the Three and Nine Months Ended May 31, 2022 and 2021

 

Revenues 

 

Our total revenue reported for the nine months ended May 31, 2022 was $2,056,000, compared with $102,400 for the nine months ended May 31, 2021. The increase in revenue for the nine months ended May 31, 2022 over the same period last year was mainly attributable to the Company sold the mainland China copyright and broadcast right of the movie “Love over the world”, “Our treasures” and “QiQingKuaiChe” for $1,800,000, and sold the mainland China copyrights and broadcast rights of the movie “LuShang” and “Huafeng” for total $256,000. For the same period last year, we had to shutdown of the performance matching platform (Ai Bian Quan Qiu). Since no large social gathering is allowed as a result of COVID-19, there has been no revenue generated from the performance matching platform (Ai Bian Quan Qiu) since the end of January, 2020.

 

Total revenue for the three months ended May 31, 2022 was $256,000, compared with negative revenue of $51,200 for the three months ended May 31, 2021. The increase was mainly due to we sold the mainland China copyrights and broadcast rights of the movie “LuShang” and “Huafeng” for total $256,000.

 

Our cost of revenues was $2,235,534 for the nine months ended May 31, 2022, as compared with $878,601 for the nine months ended May 31, 2021. Most of the increase in cost of revenues for the nine months ended May 31, 2022 was the result of amortizing movie copyrights and broadcast rights due to the Company obtained more movie copyrights and broadcast rights.

Our cost of revenues was $862,400 for the three months ended May 31, 2022, as compared with $423,674 for the three months ended May 31, 2021. Most of the increase in cost of revenues for the three months ended May 31, 2022 was the result of amortizing movie copyrights and broadcast rights due to the Company obtained more movie copyrights and broadcast rights.

 

As a result, we had a gross loss of $179,534 for the nine months ended May 31, 2022, as compared with a gross loss of $776,201 for the nine months ended May 31, 2021. The negative gross profit for the nine months ended May 31, 2022 was attributable to the amortization of movie broadcast rights exceeded the revenue from the copyright sales of films.

 

As a result, we had a gross loss of $606,400 for the three months ended May 31, 2022, as compared with a gross loss of $474,874 for the three months ended May 31, 2021. The increase in gross loss for the three months ended May 31, 2022 was attributable to the amortization of movie broadcast rights exceeded the revenue from the copyright sales of films.

 

On April 27, 2022, we purchased a unique Non-Fungible Token movie and music marketplace, named as the NFT MMM, from Stareastnet Portal Limited, which including an APP “NFT MMM” on Google Play, and full right to the website: starestnet.io. We are actively launching movie NFT to buyers on the NFT MMM, and expect to generate transaction revenues from the platform.

 

In addition, we are increasing the marketing activities to achieve enough customers to start subscriptions for ABQQ.tv. and as well as generating revenue from the NYC cinema box office sales.

 

Operating Expenses 

 

Operating expenses decreased to $1,448,288 for the nine months ended May 31, 2022 from $1,466,979 for the nine months ended May 31, 2021. Our operating expenses for nine months ended May 31, 2022 consisted of general and administrative expenses of $1,106,121 and related party salary and wages of $342,167. In contrast, our operating expenses for the nine months ended May 31, 2021 consisted of general and administrative expenses of $1,208,142 and related party salary and wages of $258,837.

  

Operating expenses decreased to $421,317 for the three months ended May 31, 2022 from $517,845 for the three months ended May 31, 2021.

In contrast, our operating expenses for the three months ended May 31, 2021 consisted of general and administrative expenses of $443,345 and related party salary and wages of $74,500.

 

We anticipate our operating expenses will increase as we undertake our plan of operations, including increased costs associated with marketing, personnel, and other general and administrative expenses, along with increased professional fees associated with SEC and COVID compliance as our business grows more complex and more expensive to maintain. On the COVID front, we expect that restrictions will ease moving forward, but there may still be setbacks as variants to the virus emerge and governments take lockdown measures in response. These and other costs for COVID expenditures may increase our operational costs in fiscal 2022 at various levels of operation.

 

Other Income/Expenses

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of May 31, 2022, we had $382,215 in current assets consisting of cash, accounts receivable and prepaid expenses. Our total current liabilities as of May 31, 2022 were $1,646,294. As a result, we have a working deficit of $1,264,079 as of May 31, 2022 as compared with a working deficit of $228,669 as of August 31, 2021.

  

Operating activities used $478,498 in cash for the nine months ended May 31, 2022, as compared with $4,043,032 used in cash for the same period ended May 31, 2021. Our negative operating cash flow in nine months ended May 31, 2022 was mainly the result of our net loss for the nine months combined with operating changes in purchase of copyrights and broadcast rights and changes in the long-term prepayments, offset by the amortization of intangible assets and increased account payable and accrued liabilities. Our negative operating cash flow in the same period in 2021 was mainly the result of our net loss for the nine months combined with operating changes in purchase of copyrights and broadcast rights, offset by the amortization of intangible assets.

 

Investing activities used $280,000 for the nine months ended May 31, 2022, as compared with $5,000 used for the nine months ended May 31, 2021. Our negative investing cash flow for May 31, 2022 was mainly the result of the purchase of NFT MMM, a unique Non-Fungible Token movie and music marketplace.

 

Financing activities provided $998,007 for the nine months ended May 31, 2022, as compared with $1,660,166 provided in financing activities for the nine months ended May 31, 2021. Our positive financing cash flow for the period ended May 31, 2022 was the result of proceeds from issuance of our common stock and preferred stock. Our positive financing cash flow for the period ended May 31, 2021 was the result of proceeds from issuance of convertible notes and convertible notes and sales of our common stock and preferred stock.

 

Based upon our current financial condition, we do not have sufficient cash to operate our business at the current level for the next twelve months. We intend to fund operations through increased sales and debt and/or equity financing arrangements, which may be insufficient to fund expenditures or other cash requirements. We plan to seek additional financing in a private equity offering to secure funding for operations. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in raising additional funding. If we are not able to secure additional funding, the implementation of our business plan will be impaired. There can be no assurance that such additional financing will be available to us on acceptable terms or at all.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. As of May 31, 2022, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $8.37 million and a negative working capital of $1.26 million. For the nine months ended May 31, 2022, the Company incurred a net loss of approximately $1.77 million and had negative cash flows of approximately $0.48 million from its operations. Although, the Company generated revenue of approximately $2.06 million as the result of selling the mainland China copyrights and broadcast rights for five movies (“Love over the world”, “Our treasures”, “Confusion”, “Huafeng” and “Lushang”) for the nine months ended May 31, 2022, the future operations of the Company depend on its ability to realize forecasted revenues, achieve profitable operations, and depend on whether or not the Company could obtain the continued financial support from its stockholders or external financing. Management believes the existing stockholders will provide the additional cash to meet the Company’s obligations as they become due. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be successful in securing sufficient funds to sustain the operations.

 

These factors, among others, raise the substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continued as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effect on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the outcome of these uncertainties. Management believes that the actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding and implement its strategic plan provides the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.

Revenues 

 

Our total revenue reported for the year ended August 31, 2021 was $115,091, compared with $448,343 for the year ended August 31, 2020.

 

The decrease in revenue for the years ended August 31, 2021 over the years ended August 31, 2020 is mainly attributable to the termination of the sublicensing agreement with Anyone Picture in January, 2021. As such, there has been no revenues generated from sub-licensing the patent since the end of December, 2020.

        

89% and 69% of revenue was generated from one customer during the years ended August 31, 2021 and August 31, 2020, respectively.

 

Our cost of revenues was $1,494,328 for the years ended August 31, 2021, as compared with $177,577 for the years ended August 31, 2020. Most of the increase in cost of revenues for the years ended August 31, 2021 was the result of amortizing movie broadcast rights, not present in the same period 2020.

 

As a result, we had gross loss of $1,379,237 for the years ended August 31, 2021, as compared with gross profit of $270,766 for the years ended August 31, 2020. The decrease in gross profit margin for the years ended August 31, 2021 is largely to the high cost of amortizing movie broadcast rights.

 

We hope to generate increased revenue in the future by achieving enough customers to start subscriptions for ABQQ.tv and generating movie box office revenue from our new movie theatre in New York.

 

Operating Expenses 

 

Operating expenses increased to $1,844,670 for the years ended August 31, 2021 from $1,640,093 for the years ended August 31, 2020.

We experienced an increase in general and administrative expenses in 2021 over 2020, mainly as a result of increased consulting fees, transaction costs for issuing preferred shares, rent, salaries, valuation fees, travel and entertainment, and depreciation expense, etc.

 

We experienced an increase in related party salary and wages as the Chief Executive Officer started receiving cash salary in the fiscal year of 2021 and received both cash bonus and stock-based compensation in February, 2021.

During the years ended August 31, 2020, $169,768 was paid to five executives in the form of stock-based compensation and $15,000 cash salary was paid to the Chief Financial Officer. 

 

We anticipate our operating expenses will increase as we undertake our plan of operations, including increased costs associated with marketing, personnel, and other general and administrative expenses, along with increased professional fees associated with SEC and COVID compliance as our business grows more complex and more expensive to maintain. On the COVID front, we expect that restrictions will ease moving forward, but there may still be setbacks as variants to the virus emerge and governments take lockdown measures in response. These and other costs for COVID expenditures may increase our operational costs in fiscal 2022 at various levels of operation.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

In December 2001, the SEC requested that all registrants list their most “critical accounting polices” in the Management Discussion and Analysis. The SEC indicated that a “critical accounting policy” is one which is both important to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and results, and requires management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain.

 

Our critical accounting policies are set forth in Note 2 to the financial statements.

Youall Perform Services Ltd, owned by the son of the Company’s Chief Executive Offer and the Company’s former Secretary and Treasurer Jianli Deng, collects revenue from the performance matching platform “Ai Bian Quan Qiu” via a Wechat official account on behalf of the Company. Due to the COVID-19 impact, the Company ceased operation of the “Ai Bian Quan Qiu” platform in January, 2020. For the years ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company recognized revenue of $0 and $141,143 from this performance matching platform, respectively. The balance of related party receivable from Youall Perform Services Ltd was $1,439 and $87,581 as of August 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

As there has been no revenue from the “Ai Bian Quan Qiu” platform due to COVID-19 since mid-January, 2020, $108,800 long-term prepayment was expensed as research and development expense in FY2020. In July 2020, the Company changed the service scope of this agreement and turned it into a website maintenance contract over the next two years. The major website of this Company is ABQQ.tv for video streaming.

The Company has already paid the licensor a non-refundable, up-from payment of $500,000 and shall pay a royalty of 20% of the gross revenue realized from the sale of licensed products and sub-licensing of this patent every year. The royalty expenses during the years ended August 31, 2021 and August 31, 2020 are $25,600 and $61,440, respectively. In January, 2021, the Company’s sublicensing agreement to generate royalty revenues was terminated with Anyone Picture. As such, there has been no royalty expenses since the end of December, 2020 given there has been no sublicensing royalty revenue generated from the patent. Once the Company finds another company to sublicense the patent, it will generate royalty revenue and pay royalty expense again.

  

The Company rented an office from ZESTV STUDIOS LIMITED, a Hong Kong entity 100% owned by the Chief Executive Officer Chiyuan Deng. On December 1, 2020, the Company entered an agreement with ZESTV STUDIOS LIMITED to grant ZESTV STUIDIOS LIMITED the distribution right for the movie “Love over the world” and charge ZESTV STUIDIOS LIMITED movie royalties. The Company’s royalties revenue is stipulated to equal 43% of the after-tax movie box office revenue deducting movie issuance costs. The movie box office revenue is tracked by a movie distributor Huaxia Film Distribution Co. Ltd (hereafter “Hua Xia”) in China as it connects with all movie theaters in China and can track the total movie box office revenue online in real time. Although ZESTV STUDIOS LIMITED has paid royalties revenue to the Company, ZESTV STUDIOS LIMITED failed to collect cash from Hua Xia. The Company will refund ZESTV STUDIOS LIMITED the movie royalties. As of August 31, 2021, the Company incurred related party payable of $16,512 for the office rent and $916,922 of refund for the movie royalites revenue net of the movie distribution commission fee.

AB INTERNATIONAL GROUP CORP.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the nine and three months ended May 31, 2022 and 2021

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of AB International Group Corp. (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X of the Securities Exchange Commission. In accordance with those rules and regulations certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The consolidated balance sheet as of August 31, 2021 derives from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date, but does not include all the information and footnotes required by GAAP. These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended August 31, 2021.

 

The unaudited consolidated financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended May 31, 2022 and 2021, in the opinion of management, include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended May 31, 2022 and 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any other interim period or for the entire year. 

 

Foreign Currency Transactions

 

Currently the Company does not use derivative instruments to reduce its exposure to foreign currency risk. Non-monetary assets and liabilities are translated at historical rates and monetary assets and liabilities are translated at exchange rates in effect at the end of the year. Revenues and expenses are translated at average rates for the year. Gains and losses from translation of foreign currency financial statements into U.S. dollars are included in current results of operations.

  

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements” (ASC 820) and ASC 825, “Financial Instruments” (ASC 825), requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. It establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. It prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

The carrying values of cash, accounts payable, and accrued liabilities approximate fair value due to their short-term nature. The fair values of warrant liabilities and derivative liabilities embedded in convertible notes are determined by level 3 inputs. 

 

 F-5 

 

Accounting for Derivative Instruments

 

The Company accounts for derivative instruments in accordance with ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives and Hedging” (ASC 815) and all derivative instruments are reflected as either assets or liabilities at fair value in the balance sheet.

 

The Company uses estimates of fair value to value its derivative instruments. Fair value is defined as the price to sell an asset or transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between willing and able market participants. In general, the Company's policy in estimating fair values is to first look at observable market prices for identical assets and liabilities in active markets, where available. When these are not available, other inputs are used to model fair value such as prices of similar instruments, yield curves, volatilities, prepayment speeds, default rates and credit spreads (including for the Company's liabilities), relying first on observable data from active markets. Additional adjustments may be made for factors including liquidity, credit, bid/offer spreads, etc., depending on current market conditions. Transaction costs are not included in the determination of fair value. When possible, the Company seeks to validate the model's output to market transactions. Depending on the availability of observable inputs and prices, different valuation models could produce materially different fair value estimates. The values presented may not represent future fair values and may not be realizable. The Company categorizes its fair value estimates in accordance with ASC 820 based on the hierarchical framework associated with the three levels of price transparency utilized in measuring financial instruments at fair value as discussed above. Changes in fair value are recognized in the period incurred as either gains or losses.

  

Basic and Diluted Income (Loss) Per Share

 

The Company computes income (loss) per share in accordance with FASB ASC 260, “Earnings per Share” which requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share on the face of the statement of operations. The earnings per share after the reverse stock split is presented retrospectively as if the reverse split had occurred at the very beginning of the business. Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of outstanding common shares during the period. Diluted loss per share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares and potential common shares outstanding during the period for warrants, options and restricted shares under treasury stock method, and for convertible debts and convertible preferred stock under if-convertible method, if dilutive. Diluted income (loss) per share gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period and excludes all potential common shares if their effects are anti-dilutive.

 

The Company had preferred shares and had no convertible notes and warrants as of May 31, 2022. For the three months ended May 31, 2022 and 2021, and for the nine months ended May 31, 2022 and 2021, no potentially diluted shares were included in the diluted loss per share as they would be anti-dilutive. 

 

NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. As of May 31, 2022, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $8.37 million and a negative working capital of $1.26 million. For the nine months ended May 31, 2022, the Company incurred a net loss of approximately $1.77 million. Although, the Company generated revenue of approximately $2.06 million as the result of selling the mainland China copyrights and broadcast rights for five movies (“Love over the world”, “Our treasures”, “Confusion”, “Huafeng” and “Lushang”) for the nine months ended May 31, 2022, the future operations of the Company depend on its ability to realize forecasted revenues, achieve profitable operations, and depend on whether or not the Company could obtain the continued financial support from its stockholders or external financing. Management believes the existing stockholders will provide the additional cash to meet the Company’s obligations as they become due. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be successful in securing sufficient funds to sustain the operations.

 

These factors, among others, raise the substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effect on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the outcome of these uncertainties. Management believes that the actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding and implement its strategic plan provides the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.

NOTE 9 – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

The Company applies ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures. ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. ASC 820 requires disclosures to be provided on fair value measurement.

 

ASC 820 establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

Level 1 — Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

Level 2 — Include other inputs that are directly or indirectly observable in the marketplace.
Level 3 — Unobservable inputs which are supported by little or no market activity.

 

ASC 820 describes three main approaches to measuring the fair value of assets and liabilities: (1) market approach; (2) income approach; and (3) cost approach. The market approach uses prices and other relevant information generated from market transactions involving identical or comparable assets or liabilities. The income approach uses valuation techniques to convert future amounts to a single present value amount. The measurement is based on the value indicated by current market expectations about those future amounts. The cost approach is based on the amount that would currently be required to replace an asset.

 

Derivative liabilities of conversion features in convertible notes are classified within Level 3. We estimate the fair values of these liabilities at May 31, 2021 by using Monte Carlo simulation based on the remaining contractual terms, risk-free interest rates, and expected volatility of the stock prices, etc. The assumptions used, including the market value of stock prices in the future and the expected volatilities, were subjective unobservable inputs.

  

Liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis are summarized below:

 

    Fair value measurement using:    
    Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets (Level 1)   

 Significant other observable inputs

NOTE 10– RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

In support of the Company’s efforts and cash requirements, it may rely on advances from related parties until such time that the Company can support its operations or attains adequate financing through sales of its equity or traditional debt financing.

NOTE 12 – INCOME TAXES

 

Components of net deferred tax assets, including a valuation allowance, are as follows:

 

  May 31, 2022 August 31, 2021
Deferred tax asset attributable to:        
Net operating loss carry over $1,246,974  $871,681 
Less: valuation allowance  (1,246,974)  (871,681)
Net deferred tax asset $    $   

 

The valuation allowance for deferred tax assets was $1,246,974 as of May 31, 2022 and $871,681 as of August 31, 2021. In assessing the recovery of the deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income in the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible. Management considers the scheduled reversals of future deferred tax assets, projected future taxable income, and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. As a result, management determined it was more likely than not the deferred tax assets would not be realized as of May 31, 2022 and August 31, 2021

 

 F-12 

 

Reconciliation between the statutory rate and the effective tax rate is as follows:

     
  Nine months ended
  May 31,
  2022 2021
Federal statutory tax rate  21%  21%
Change in valuation allowance  (21%)  (21%)
Effective tax rate  0%  0%

 

The Company's future business will focus on local cinemas and websites in the United States. During the nine months ended May 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company and its subsidiary have incurred a consolidated net loss of $1,769,767 and $2,601,535, respectively and had net loss carryforward from prior years.

NOTE 13 – CONCENTRATION OF RISK

 

Credit risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to significant concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of cash. The Hong Kong Deposit Protection Board pays compensation up to a limit of HKD 500,000 (approximately $64,000) if the bank with which an individual/a company hold its eligible deposit fails. As of May 31, 2022 and August 31, 2021, cash balance of $371,762 and $131,796, respectively, were maintained at financial institutions in Hong Kong, and were subject to credit risk. In the US, the insurance coverage of each bank is $250,000. The Company didn’t deposit with financial institutions located in US and were not subject to credit risk. While management believes that these financial institutions and third-party fund holders are of high credit quality, it also continually monitors their creditworthiness.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

 

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of

AB International Group Corp.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of AB International Group Corp. (the “Company”) as of August 31, 2021, and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the year then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the "financial statements"). In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of AB International Group Corp. as of August 31, 2021, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the year 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 disclosed in the financial statements, the Company has limited operations and it has yet to attain profitability, has negative working capital, has an accumulated deficit at August 31, 2021, and is dependent on debt and equity financing to fund its operations, all of which raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans regarding these matters are disclosed in Note 2. 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 audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

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

 

Our audit included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

Critical Audit Matter

 

The critical audit matter communicated below is a matter arising from the current period audit of the financial statements that was communicated or required to be communicated to the audit committee and that: (1) relate to accounts or disclosures that are material to the financial statements and (2) involved our especially challenging, subjective, or complex judgements. The communication of critical audit matter does not alter in any way our opinion on the financial statements, taken as a whole, and we are not, by communicating the critical audit matter below, providing separate opinions on the critical audit matter or on the accounts or disclosures to which they relate.

 

Intangible Assets/Impairments

 

Description of the Matter

 

As disclosed in Note 2 "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies" - Intangible Assets, movie copyrights and broadcast rights are stated at the lower of cost or amortized cost or estimated fair value. Auditing the Company’s impairment evaluation for movie copyrights and broadcast rights is challenging and subjective as the key inputs into the analysis include estimates of future anticipated revenues and box office performance, which may differ from future actual results. These estimates are based in part on the historical performance of similar films, test audience results when available, information regarding competing film releases, and critic reviews.

 

How We Addressed the Matter in Our Audit

 

We obtained an understanding over the Company’s movie copyrights and broadcast rights impairment review process. To test the assessment of movie copyrights and broadcast rights for impairment, we obtained management’s forecasts of revenue and our audit procedures included, among others, checking mathematical accuracy, reviewing and testing the completeness and accuracy of any underlying data as well as the significant assumptions mentioned above.

AB INTERNATIONAL GROUP CORP.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the years ended August 31, 2021 and August 31, 2020

(Audited)

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS

 

AB International Group Corp. (the “Company”, “we” or “us”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on July 29, 2013. The Company's fiscal year end is August 31.

 

We are an intellectual property (IP) and movie investment and licensing firm, focused on acquisitions and development of various intellectual property. We are engaged to acquisition and distribution of movies. We have a patent license to a video synthesis and release system for mobile communications equipment, in which the technology is the subject of a utility model patent in the People’s Republic of China. We had launched a business application (Ai Bian Quan Qiu) through smartphones and official social media accounts based on WeChat platform in February 2019, utilizing Artificial Intelligence, it is a matching platform for performers, advertiser merchants, and owners for more efficient services. We generate revenues through an agency service fee from each matched performance.

 

On January 22, 2016, our former sole officer, who owned 83% of our outstanding common shares, sold all of his common shares to unrelated investor Jianli Deng. After the stock sale, we modified our business to focus on the creation of a mobile app marketing engine. The app was designed for movie trailer promotions and we planned to generate a subscriber base of smartphone users primarily through pre-installed app smartphone makers, online app stores, WeChat official accounts, Weibo and other social network media outlets and sell prepaid cards or coins to movie distributors or other video advertisers in China. We created the app “Amoney” for the Android smartphone platform to develop a WeChat micro-shop that was designed to display and deliver a variety of information and links for download or online watch prices in the China market.

 

On June 1, 2017 we entered into a Patent License Agreement (the “Agreement”) pursuant to which Guangzhou Shengshituhua Film and Television Company Limited, a company incorporated in China (“Licensor”), granted to us a worldwide license to a video synthesis and release system for mobile communications equipment (the “Technology”). The Technology is the subject of a utility patent in the People’s Republic of China. Under the Agreement, we are able to utilize, improve upon, and sub-license the technology a term of five years commencing on the June 1, 2017 (Effective Date) and subject to a right to renew for another five years. We were obligated to pay the Licensor $500,000 within 30 days of the date of the Agreement and a royalty fee in the amount of 20% of any proceeds resulting from our utilization of the Technology, whether in the form of sub-licensing fees or sales of licensed products. Our Chief Executive Officer, Chiyuan Deng and former Chief Executive Officer, Jianli Deng, jointly own and control Licensor. On October 10, 2017, we completed the payment of $500,000 initial payment amount due under the Agreement. The term of this sublicensing agreement was renewed and extended for another five years in October of 2019. 

 

Our License to the Technology generates revenue through sub-license monthly fees from a smartphone app on Android devices. This smartphone app was already existing and licensed at the time we acquired the Technology of video synthesis. In January, 2021, our sublicensing agreement with Anyone Picture to generate revenues was terminated. As such, there has been no revenues generated from sub-licensing the Technology since the end of December, 2020.

 

 F-23 

 

On March 21, 2018, we acquired the intellectual assets of KryptoKiosk Limited, a crypto currencies kiosk company which has licenses and patent in Australia, which enable the operation of cryptocurrency ATMs that allow buying and selling of Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethererum all in one terminal. The Company planned to generate revenue through sub-licensing fees for the operation of cryptocurrency ATMs. Through the foregoing the Company proposed to bring a physical aspect to something that is otherwise very abstract to people. We also issued to JPC Fintech Limited 2,400,000 common shares with a market value of $72,000 exchange of KryptoKiosk Limited’s assets consist mostly of intellectual property, including, but not limited to, certain domain names, copyrights, trademarks, and patents pending, but also include contract rights and personal property. We planned to generate revenue through sub-licensing fees for the operation of cryptocurrency ATMs. Through the foregoing, we proposed to bring a physical aspect to something that is otherwise very abstract to people. We planned to invest in machines and sell sub-licenses in the Asia Pacific region with future world-wide expansion. We had promoted and marketed the ATM business for 6 months or until around August 2018, because the BTC and cryptocurrencies price went down. The IP, however, was never transferred to us. We have repeatedly requested from Messrs. Grounds, Vickery and Shakespare access to the domains and websites and other information concerning the IP assets. As of the date of this annual report, no such information has been provided. In addition, the IP including domain names were transferred to others while Messrs. Vickery and Shakespare were officers of our company. As a result, we ceased promotions and marketing on the ATM business and relations cryptocurrencies business in September 2018. On November 21, 2018, we had sent the final notice that JPC Fintech has materially breached the agreement. We requested that JPC Fintech Ltd. return its stock certificate received in the transaction to our transfer agent for immediate cancellation. We have not yet received the certificate for termination. In February of 2020, 100% of the intellectual assets of KryptoKiosk Limited’s carrying value $48,000 net of amortization is written off since the IP was never transferred to us and no revenue was generated from this intellectual asset.

 

On September 5, 2018, the Company entered into an agreement to acquire a movie copyright for $768,000 from All In One Media Ltd, which holds 200,000 common shares of the Company as of August 31, 2019 and is previously named as Aura Blocks Limited. The remaining balance to Aura Blocks Limited is $153,600 as of August 31, 2019. The Company has obtained the exclusive permanent broadcasting right outside the mainland China and is expected to generate revenues from showing the movie online, in theaters, and on TV outside the mainland China once this movie is completed in June, 2019. In August of 2019, the Company sold this movie copyright to China IPTV Industry Park Holding Ltd for $857,600 with a gain of $89,538.

  

 F-24 

 

In December of 2018, we engaged StarEastnet, a software developer that holds 171,000 common shares of the Company as of August 31, 2019, to start developing a performance matching platform (Ai Bian Quan Qiu) and a WeChat official account to advertise the platform. The matching platform is to arrange performance events for celebrities and performers. Performers can set their schedules and quotes on the platform. The platform will maximize their profits from performance events by optimizing their schedules based upon quotes and event locations and save time from commuting among different events. “Ai Bian Quan Qiu” utilizes the artificial intelligence (AI) matching technology to instantly and accurately match performers and advertisers or merchants. The company charges agency service fees for each successful event matched through the platform. Since no large social gathering is allowed as a result of COVID-19, there has been no revenue generated from the performance matching platform (Ai Bian Quan Qiu) since the end of January, 2020. The Company decided to impair 100% of the carrying amount of Ai Bian Quan Qiu platform and its Wechat official account.

 

In June, 2019, the Company completed the development of a video mix APP for social video sharing via iOS and Android smartphones. This app was originally planned to take advantage of the core design philosophy of “My film anyone, anywhere, anytime be together” as similar and competitive innovative video and community apps have been activated on over 2 million unique devices in China as of December 31, 2017 and precipitated the duet video synthesis phenomenon in China. However, the Company decided to focus on the “Ai Bian Quan Qiu” platform as its main business and thus sold the video mix APP to Anyone Pictures Limited, which holds 242,980 common shares of the Company, for $422,400 with a gain of $59,792 in August of 2019. Due to the quarantine and continuous control imposed by the state and local governments in areas affected by COVID-19, merchant advertising events were suspended. The Company decided to shut down the Ai Bian Quan Qiu platform and no revenue was generated after January 31, 2020. As a result, it has created an adverse impact on the business and financial condition and hampered its ability to generate revenue and access sources of liquidity on reasonable terms.

 

In August of 2019, the Company entered into a one year loan agreement to lend $1,047,040 at an annual interest rate of 10% to All In One Media Ltd, previously named as Aura Blocks Limited, for producing films and digital videos in Hong Kong. The term of note receivable was from August 1, 2019 to July 31, 2020. This loan principal balance was paid off in full in July, 2020. All the interest income of $95,979 was received by August 31, 2020.

 

On September 4, 2019, the Company entered into another loan agreement to lend $1,049,600 at an annual interest rate of 10% to All In One Media Ltd, previously named as Aura Blocks Limited. The term of note receivable was from September 4, 2019 to March 3, 2020. This loan balance was paid off in full on May 4th, 2020 with two months’ extension. All the interest income of $70,021 was received by November 13, 2020. 

 

On April 22, 2020, the Company announced the first phase development of its video streaming service. The online service will be marketed and distributed in the world under the brand name ABQQ.tv. The Company’s professional team are sourcing such dramas and films to provide video streaming service on the ABQQ.tv. The video streaming website www.ABQQ.tv was officially launched on December 29, 2020. As of August 31, 2021, the Company acquired 4 movie copyrights and 59 movie broadcast rights. The Company will continue marketing and promoting the ABQQ.tv website through GoogleAds and acquire additional broadcast rights for movies and TV series, and plan to charge subscription fees once the Company has obtained at least 200 broadcast rights of movie and TV series.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and are presented in US dollars. The Company’s year-end is August 31.

 

 F-25 

 

Basis of Consolidation

 

The financial statements have been prepared on a consolidated basis, with the Company’s fully owned subsidiary App Board Limited registered and located in Hong Kong. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Going Concern Uncertainties

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future.

 

As of August 31, 2021, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $6.6 million and a working capital deficit of $228,669. For the year ended August 31, 2021, the Company incurred a net loss of approximately $3.6 million and the net cash used in operations was $5,141,166. Losses have principally occurred as a result of the substantial resources required for general and administrative expenses associated with our operations. The continuation of the Company as a going concern through August 31, 2022 is dependent upon the continued financial support from its stockholders or external financing. Management believes the existing stockholders will provide the additional cash to meet the Company’s obligations as they become due. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be successful in securing sufficient funds to sustain the operations.

 

These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effect on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the outcome of these uncertainties. Management believes that the actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding and implement its strategic plan provides the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.

  

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date the financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

Foreign Currency Transactions

 

The Company’s planned operations are outside of the United States, which results in exposure to market risks from changes in foreign currency rates. The financial risk arises from the fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and the degrees of volatility in these rates. Currently the Company does not use derivative instruments to reduce its exposure to foreign currency risk. Non-monetary assets and liabilities are translated at historical rates and monetary assets and liabilities are translated at exchange rates in effect at the end of the year. Revenues and expenses are translated at average rates for the year. Gains and losses from translation of foreign currency financial statements into U.S. dollars are included in current results of operations.

 

Account Receivable

 

Account receivable consisted of amounts due from Anyone Pictures Limited for the sub-licensing fee revenue. Amount receivable balances are recorded at the invoiced amount and do not bear interest. As the sublicensing agreement with Anyone Picture was terminated in January, 2021, there was no account receivable balance as of August 31, 2021. The allowance for doubtful accounts is the Company’s best estimate of the amount of probable credit losses in its existing accounts receivable. NaNamount for bad debt expense was recorded by the Company during the years ended August 31, 2021 and August 31, 2020, and 0write-offs for bad debt were recorded for the years ended August 31, 2021 and August 31, 2020.

 

Prepaid Expenses

 

Prepaid expenses primarily consist of prepayments of OTC market annual fee. The prepaid balances are amortized when the related expense is incurred.

 

 F-26 

 

Fixed Asset

 

Fixed asset consists of furniture and appliances acquired for the office. The balance is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over estimated useful lives listed below:

 

    Estimated Useful Life
 Furniture  7 years
 Appliances  5 years

 

Leasehold Improvement

 

Leasehold improvement is related to the enhancements paid by the Company to leased office and store. Leasehold improvement represents capital expenditures for direct costs of renovation or acquisition and design fees incurred. The amortization of leasehold improvements commences once the renovation is completed and ready for the Company’s intended use. Leasehold improvement is amortized over the lease term of 3 years.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets are stated at the lower of cost or amortized cost or estimated fair value and amortized as follows:

 

 Movie copyrights and broadcast rights: straight-line method over the estimated life of the asset, which has been determined by management to be 2 years

 

 Patent: straight-line method over the term of 5 years based on the patent license agreement 

 

Amortized costs of the intangible asset are recorded as cost of sales, as the intangible assets are directly related to generation of revenues in the Company.

 

Lease property under operating lease

 

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued updated guidance to improve financial reporting about leasing transactions. This guidance required organizations that lease assets to recognize on the balance sheet the assets and liabilities for the rights and obligations created by those leases. The original guidance required application on a modified retrospective basis with the earliest period presented. In August 2018, the FASB issued new guidance which included an option to not restate comparative periods in transition. Under this new guidance, a company applies the standard to leases in place as of the date of initial application, records a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the first day of the adoption year, and follows the new rules for all leases entered or modified going forward.  The Company adopted this new standard on June 1, 2020 with no retrospective adjustments to prior comparative periods. In accordance with ASC 250-10-45-14, a change in accounting principle made in an interim period shall be reflected as if the entity had adopted the new principle on the first day of the adoption year, which is September 1, 2019 for the Company. As such, the adoption of ASC 842 lease accounting standard has resulted in $196,813 lease liabilities with corresponding $201,025 ROU assets net of amortization as of September 1, 2019 based on the present value of the remaining rental payments under current leasing standards for existing leases. The remaining balance of lease liabilities are presented within the current portion of lease liabilities and the non-current portion of lease liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheet. 

 

Impairment of Long-lived asset

 

The Company evaluates its long-lived assets or asset group, including intangible assets with indefinite and finite lives, for impairment. Intangible assets with indefinite lives that are not subject to amortization are tested for impairment at least annually or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the assets might be impaired in accordance with ASC 350. Such impairment test compares the fair values of assets with their carrying values with an impairment loss recognized when the carrying values exceed fair values. For long-lived assets and intangible assets with finite lives that are

 

 F-27 

 

subject to depreciation and amortization are tested for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances (such as a significant adverse change to market conditions that will impact the future use of the assets) indicate that the carrying amount of an asset or a Group of long-lived assets may not be recoverable. When these events occur, the Company evaluates impairment by comparing the carrying amount of the assets to future undiscounted net cash flows expected to result from the use of the assets and their eventual disposition. If the sum of the expected undiscounted cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the assets, the Company would recognize an impairment loss based on the excess of the carrying amount of the asset group over its fair value.

  

Impairment losses are included in the general and administrative expense. There was no impairment loss during the year ended August 31, 2021. For the year ended August 31, 2020, the impairment loss of intangible assets was $125,062, including $48,000 for the intellectual assets acquired from KryptoKiosk Limited and $77,062 for the performance matching platform “Ai Bian Quan Qiu” and its WeChat official account.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company adopted ASC Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, applying the modified retrospective method.

  

In accordance with ASC Topic 606, revenues are recognized when control of the promised goods or services are transferred to a customer, in an amount that reflects the consideration that the Company expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. The Company applies the following five steps in order to determine the appropriate amount of revenue to be recognized as it fulfills its obligations under each of its agreements:

 

 the contract with a customer;

 

 identify the performance obligations in the contract;

 

 determine the transaction price;

 

 allocate the transaction price to performance obligations in the contract; and

 

 recognize revenue as the performance obligation is satisfied.

 

The Company does not believe that significant management judgements are involved in revenue recognition, but the amount and timing of the Company’s revenues could be different for any period if management made different judgments or utilized different estimates. Generally, the Company recognizes revenue under ASC Topic 606 for its performance obligation.

 

The Company generates revenue from sub-licensing a patent. The sub-licensing revenue is recognized monthly based upon the number of users who download the APP that utilizes the Company’s patent. The monthly royalty the Company charges Anyone Pictures Limited is $12.8 per 1000 APP users. Both parties agreed to charge the sublicensing fee based upon a fixed number 2,000,000 users. In January, 2021, our sublicensing agreement with Anyone Picture to generate revenues was terminated. As such, there has been no revenues generated from sub-licensing the Technology since the end of December, 2020. Once the Company finds another company to sublicense the patent, it will generate royalty revenue again.

  

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements” (ASC 820) and ASC 825, “Financial Instruments” (ASC 825), requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. It establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. It prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

 

 F-28 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

The carrying values of cash, accounts payable, and accrued liabilities approximate fair value due to their short-term nature. The fair values of warrant liabilities and derivative liabilities embedded in convertible notes are determined by level 3 inputs. 

 

Accounting for Derivative Instruments

 

The Company accounts for derivative instruments in accordance with ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives and Hedging” (ASC 815) and all derivative instruments are reflected as either assets or liabilities at fair value in the balance sheet.

 

The Company uses estimates of fair value to value its derivative instruments. Fair value is defined as the price to sell an asset or transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between willing and able market participants. In general, the Company's policy in estimating fair values is to first look at observable market prices for identical assets and liabilities in active markets, where available. When these are not available, other inputs are used to model fair value such as prices of similar instruments, yield curves, volatilities, prepayment speeds, default rates and credit spreads (including for the Company's liabilities), relying first on observable data from active markets. Additional adjustments may be made for factors including liquidity, credit, bid/offer spreads, etc., depending on current market conditions. Transaction costs are not included in the determination of fair value. When possible, the Company seeks to validate the model's output to market transactions. Depending on the availability of observable inputs and prices, different valuation models could produce materially different fair value estimates. The values presented may not represent future fair values and may not be realizable. The Company categorizes its fair value estimates in accordance with ASC 820 based on the hierarchical framework associated with the three levels of price transparency utilized in measuring financial instruments at fair value as discussed above. Changes in fair value are recognized in the period incurred as either gains or losses.

 

Warrants

 

Warrants are classified as equity and the proceeds from issuing warrants in conjunction with convertible notes are allocated based on the relative fair values of the base instrument of convertible notes and the warrants by following the guidance of ASC 470-20-25-2 as below:

 

Proceeds from the sale of a debt instrument with stock purchase warrants (detachable call options) shall be allocated to the two elements based on the relative fair values of the debt instrument without the warrants and of the warrants themselves at time of issuance. The portion of the proceeds so allocated to the warrants shall be accounted for as paid-in capital. The remainder of the proceeds shall be allocated to the debt instrument portion of the transaction. This usually results in a discount (or, occasionally, a reduced premium), which shall be accounted for as interest expense under Topic 835 Interest.

  

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes pursuant to FASB ASC 740 “Income Taxes”. Under ASC 740 deferred income taxes are provided on a liability method whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences and operating loss carryforwards and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets

 

 F-29 

 

are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The provision for income taxes represents the tax expense for the period, if any, and the change during the period in deferred tax assets and liabilities. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

 

ASC 740 also provides criteria for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of uncertain tax positions. Under ASC 740, the impact of an uncertain tax position on the income tax return may only be recognized at the largest amount that is more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon audit by the relevant taxing authority. At August 31, 2021 and 2020, there were no unrecognized tax benefits. Please see Note 14 for details.

 

Value-Added Taxes

 

The Company generates revenue in People's Republic of China (PRC) via the “Ai Bian Quan Qiu” platform and is subject to a value-added tax at an effective rate of 6%. In accordance with PRC law, the Company is also subject to surcharges, which includes urban maintenance and construction taxes and additional education fees on VAT payable.

 

The Company’s revenue generated from the “Ai Bian Quan Qiu” platform is subject to VAT at a rate of 6% and subject to surcharges at a rate of 12% of the VAT payable.

  

Basic and Diluted Income (Loss) Per Share

 

The Company computes income (loss) per share in accordance with FASB ASC 260, “Earnings per Share” which requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share on the face of the statement of operations. The earnings per share after the reverse stock split is presented retrospectively as if the reverse split had occurred at the very beginning of the business. Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of outstanding common shares during the period. Diluted loss per share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares and potential common shares outstanding during the period for warrants, options and restricted shares under treasury stock method, and for convertible debts under if-convertible method, if dilutive. Diluted income (loss) per share gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period and excludes all potential common shares if their effects are anti-dilutive.

 

In accordance with the Company’s convertible note agreements, the Note Holders have the option to convert all or any lesser portion of the outstanding principal amount and accrued but unpaid interest into common stock at a conversion price equal to a price which is 55% or 60% of the lowest trading price during the 10 or 20 days prior to the day that the Holder requests conversion. 55% is applicable to EMA Financial whereas 60% applies for the other counterparties. The lowest trading price during 10 days prior to conversion is applicable to East Capital and Fidelis Capital, whereas the other counterparties utilize the lowest trading price during the preceding 20 days. The number of diluted shares from convertible notes is calculated with the assumption of converting all the outstanding principal balance and unpaid interest expense to common shares at the beginning of the period or at the time of issuance, if later.

 

The number of diluted shares from warrants is the upper limit to which warrants can be converted into common shares and adjusted for anti-dilution clauses.

 

The Company has prepaid all the remaining convertible notes and exercised all the warrants as of August 31, 2021. As such, 0 potentially diluted shares were from convertible notes and warrants as of August 31, 2021, whereas 6,614,769 potentially diluted shares were from convertible notes and 68,163,661 potentially diluted shares were from warrants as of August 31, 2020.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2018, the FASB issued guidance to address the income tax accounting treatment of the tax effects within other comprehensive income due to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Act”). This guidance allows entities to elect to reclassify the tax effects of the change in the income tax rates from other comprehensive income to retained earnings. The guidance is effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2018 although early adoption is permitted. The Company has evaluated and concluded that there was no impact on its consolidated financial position and results of operations.

 

In March 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-05: “Income Taxes (Topic 740)-Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118”. The amendments in this ASU add various SEC paragraphs pursuant to the issuance of SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118, which expresses the view of the staff regarding application of Topic 740, Income Taxes, in the reporting period that includes December 22, 2017 – the date on which the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law. The Company has evaluated and concluded that there was no impact on its consolidated financial position and results of operations.

 

Effective September 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASU 2018-07: “Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718) – Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting”. This ASU expands the scope of Topic 718, Compensation—Stock Compensation (which currently only includes share-based payments to employees) to include share-based payments issued to nonemployees for goods or services. Consequently, the accounting for share-based payments to nonemployees and employees will be substantially aligned. This ASU supersedes Subtopic 505-50, Equity—Equity-Based Payments to Nonemployees. The Company has evaluated and concluded that there was no impact on its consolidated financial position and results of operations.

The new standard requires disclosure of the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements. The amendments in this update are effective for all entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, “Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes” to remove specific exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and to simplify accounting for income taxes.
