NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

March 31, 2021

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1 – Overview and Basis of Presentation

 

Description of Business

 

Co-Diagnostics, Inc., a Utah corporation (the “Company” or “CDI”), is developing robust and innovative molecular tools for detection of infectious diseases, liquid biopsy for cancer screening, and agricultural applications. The Company develops, manufactures and sells reagents used for diagnostic tests that function via the detection and/or analysis of nucleic acid molecules (DNA or RNA). In connection with the sale of these tests, the Company may sell diagnostic equipment and supplies from other manufacturers.

 

Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q as they are prescribed for smaller reporting companies. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary to make the financial statements not misleading have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021. These statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and related notes for the year ended December 31, 2020, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 25, 2021.

 

Certain 2020 financial statement amounts have been reclassified to conform to 2021 presentations.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and the accompanying notes. Such estimates include receivables and other long-lived assets, legal and regulatory contingencies, income taxes, share based arrangements, and others. These estimates and assumptions are based on management’s best estimates and judgments. Actual amounts and results could differ from those estimates.

 

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents consist of cash on hand, money market funds and highly liquid investments with an original maturity date of 90 days or less from the date of purchase. The fair value of cash equivalents approximated their carrying value as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020. The Company has its cash and cash equivalents with a large creditworthy financial institution and the balance exceeded federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts, and management believes the Company is not exposed to any significant credit risk on cash and cash equivalents.

 

Marketable Investment Securities

 

The Company’s marketable investment securities are comprised of investments in certificates of deposit. The Company determines the appropriate classification of its marketable investment securities at the time of purchase and re-evaluates such designation at each balance sheet date. The Company has classified and accounted for its marketable investment securities as available-for-sale securities as the Company may sell these securities at any time for use in its current operations or for other purposes, even prior to maturity. As a result, the Company classifies its marketable investment securities, including securities with stated maturities beyond twelve months, within current assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheets. Any unrealized gains or losses are immaterial.

 

7
 

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Trade accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amount (net of allowance) and do not bear interest. The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts for amounts the Company does not expect to collect. In establishing the required allowance, management considers historical losses, current market condition, customers’ financial condition, the age of receivables, and current payment patterns. Account balances are written off against the allowance once the receivable is deemed uncollectible. Recoveries of trade receivables previously written off are recorded when collected. At March 31, 2021, total accounts receivable was $12,988,627 with an allowance for uncollectable accounts of $871,500 resulting in a net amount of $12,117,127. At December 31, 2020 total accounts receivable was $12,928,633 with an allowance for uncollectable accounts of $791,800 resulting in a net amount of $12,136,833.

 

Equity-Method Investments

 

Our equity method investments are initially recorded at cost and are included in other long-term assets in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet. We adjust the carrying value of our investment based on our share of the earnings or losses in the periods which they are reported by the investee until the carrying amount is zero. The earnings or losses are included in other income (expense) in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory is stated at the lower of cost or net-realizable value. Inventory cost is determined on a first-in first-out basis that approximates average cost in accordance with ASC 330-10-30-12. At March 31, 2021, the Company had $6,197,608 in inventory, of which $925,560 was finished goods and $5,272,048 was raw materials. At December 31, 2020, the Company had $7,995,189 in inventory, of which $598,881 was finished goods and $7,396,308 was raw materials. The Company establishes reserves to reduce slow-moving, obsolete, or unusable inventories to their estimated useful or scrap values.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the property, generally from three to five years. Repairs and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred except when such repairs significantly add to the useful life or productive capacity of the asset, in which case the repairs are capitalized.

 

The Company reviews its long-lived assets, including property and equipment, for impairment whenever an event or change in facts and circumstances indicates that their carrying amounts may not be recoverable. Recoverability of these assets is measured by comparing the carrying amount to the estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated. If the carrying amount exceeds the undiscounted cash flows, the assets are determined to be impaired and an impairment charge is recognized as the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds fair value.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company generates revenue from product sales and license sales. The Company recognizes revenue when all of the following criteria are satisfied: (i) identification of the promised goods or services in the contract; (ii) determination of whether the promised goods or services are performance obligations, including whether they are distinct in the context of the contract; (iii) measurement of the transaction price, including the constraint on variable consideration; (iv) allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations; and (v) recognition of revenue when, or as the Company satisfies each performance obligation.

 

8
 

 

The Company constrains revenue by giving consideration to factors that could otherwise lead to a probable reversal of revenue. The Company records any payments received from customers prior to the Company fulfilling its performance obligation(s) as deferred revenue.

 

Deferred Revenue

 

Deferred revenue primarily consists of payments received from customers prior to the Company fulfilling its performance obligation of providing the product. When this occurs, the Company records a contract liability as deferred revenue. Deferred revenue is recognized as revenue as the related performance obligations are satisfied.

 

Research and Development

 

Research and development costs are expensed when incurred. The Company expensed $2,217,063 and $400,022 of research and development costs for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

Stock-based Compensation

 

The Company has granted stock-based awards, including restricted stock, stock options, stock warrants and restricted stock units (“RSUs”), to its employees, certain consultants and members of its board of directors. The Company records stock-based compensation based on the grant date fair value of the awards and recognizes the fair value of those awards as expense using the straight-line method over the requisite service period of the award. The Company estimates the grant date fair value of stock options using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. When an award is forfeited prior to the vesting date, the Company recognizes an adjustment for the previously recognized expense in the period of the forfeiture.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under this method, deferred income tax assets and deferred income tax liabilities represent the tax effect of temporary differences between financial reporting and tax reporting measured at enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company recognizes only the impact of tax positions that, based on their technical merits, are more likely than not to be sustained upon an audit by the taxing authority.

 

Valuation allowances are provided when it is more-likely-than-not that some or all of the deferred income tax assets may not be realized. In assessing the need for a valuation allowance, the Company has considered its historical levels of income, expectations of future taxable income and ongoing tax planning strategies.

 

Developing the provision for income taxes, including the effective tax rate and analysis of potential tax exposure items, if any, requires significant judgment and expertise in federal and state income tax laws, regulations and strategies, including the determination of deferred income tax assets and liabilities and any estimated valuation allowances deemed necessary to value deferred income tax assets. Judgments and tax strategies are subject to audit by various taxing authorities. While the Company believes it has no significant uncertain income tax positions in the consolidated financial statements, adverse determinations by these taxing authorities could have a material adverse effect on the consolidated financial positions, result of operations, or cash flows.

 

Concentrations Risk and Significant Customers

 

The Company had certain customers which are each responsible for generating 10% or more of the total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Three customers together accounted for approximately 57% of total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

Two customers each accounted for more than 10% of accounts receivable at March 31, 2021. These two customers together accounted for approximately 61% of accounts receivable at March 31, 2021.

Net Income (Loss) per Share

 

Basic net income or loss per common share is computed by dividing net income or loss applicable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during each period.

 

Diluted net income or loss per share is computed by dividing net income or loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period increased by common shares that could be issued upon conversion or exercise of other outstanding securities to the extent those additional common shares would be dilutive. The dilutive effect of potentially dilutive securities is reflected in diluted net income or loss per share by application of the treasury stock method. During periods when the Company is in a net loss position, basic net loss per share is the same as diluted net loss per share as the effects of potentially dilutive securities are anti-dilutive.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) that are adopted by the Company as of the specified effective date. If not discussed, management believes that the impact of recently issued standards, which are not yet effective, will not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements upon adoption.

 

As an emerging growth company (“EGC”), the Company has elected to take advantage of the benefits of the extended transition period provided for in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, for complying with new or revised accounting standards which allows the Company to defer adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which requires recognition of leased assets and liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. This update is effective for annual periods and interim periods with those periods beginning after December 15, 2021, for public EGC companies like us. The Company expects to use the modified retrospective transition method with the option to recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment at the date of adoption. The Company expects its balance sheet will be impacted as it records right-of-use assets and lease liabilities on its consolidated balance sheet but does not expect the adoption of this standard will have a material impact on its consolidated statements of operations and cash flows.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326) (“ASU 2016-13”), which requires the measurement and recognition of expected credit losses for certain financial instruments, which includes the Company’s accounts receivable. ASU 2016-13 replaces the existing incurred loss impairment model with an expected loss methodology, which will result in more timely recognition of credit losses. The update is effective for annual periods and interim periods with those periods beginning after December 15, 2021, for public EGC companies like us. The standard requires a cumulative effect adjustment to the balance sheet as of the beginning of the first early reporting period in which the guidance is effective. The Company is evaluating the impact of the adoption of ASU 2016-13 on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740) (“ASU 2019-12”), which removes certain exceptions for investments, intra-period allocations and interim calculations and adds guidance to reduce complexity in accounting for income taxes. The Company adopted this standard on January 1, 2021 and it did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

Note 3 – Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company measures and records certain financial assets at fair value on a recurring basis. Fair value is based on the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.

 

The Company’s financial instruments that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis consist of money market funds. The following three levels of inputs are used to measure the fair value of financial instruments:

 

Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

10
 

 

Level 2: Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data.

 

The Company’s financial instruments that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis consist of certificates of deposit. The following table summarizes the assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, by level within the fair value hierarchy:

 

  March 31, 2021 
  (Level 1)  (Level 2)  (Level 3)  Total 
Marketable investment securities:                
Certificates of deposit $-  $2,302,644  $-  $2,302,644

Note 5 – Earnings Per Share

 

The following table reconciles the numerator and the denominator used to calculate basic and diluted earnings per share for three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020:

 

  Three Months Ended March 31, 
  2021  2020 
Numerator        
Net income (loss), as reported $7,898,975  $(1,065,193)
         
Denominator        
Weighted average shares, basic  28,662,885   22,820,450 
Dilutive effect of stock options, warrants and RSUs  1,339,844   - 
Shares used to compute diluted earnings per share  30,002,729   22,820,450 
         
Basic earnings per share $0.28  $(0.05)
Diluted earnings per share $0.26  $(0.05)

 

As a result of incurring a net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2020, no potentially dilutive securities are included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share because such effect would be anti-dilutive. The Company had potentially dilutive securities as of March 31, 2020, consisting of: (i) 2,121,817 options and (ii) 199,090 warrants.

 

Note 6 – Stock-Based Compensation

Total lease payments $861,853 

 

Litigation

 

Liabilities for loss contingencies arising from claims, assessments, litigation, fines, and penalties and other sources are recorded when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated. Legal costs incurred in connection with loss contingencies are expensed as incurred.

 

In July and September 2020, securities class action complaints were filed by certain stockholders of the Company against the Company claiming that the Company promulgated false and misleading press releases to increase the price of our stock to improperly benefit the officers and directors of the Company. The plaintiffs demand compensatory damages sustained as a result of the Company’s alleged wrongdoing in an amount to be proven at trial. The Company believes these lawsuits are without merit and intends to defend the cases vigorously. The Company is unable to estimate a range of loss, if any, that could result were there to be an adverse final decision in these cases. As of the date of this report, the Company does not believe it is probable that these cases will result in an unfavorable outcome; however, if an unfavorable outcome were to occur in these cases, it is possible that the impact could be material to the Company’s results of operations in the period(s) in which any such outcome becomes probable and estimable.

 

Note 10 – Subsequent Events

 

The Company evaluated subsequent events pursuant to ASC Topic 855 and has determined that there are no events that need to be reported.

Executive Overview

 

The following management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations describes the principal factors affecting the results of our operations, financial condition, and changes in financial condition. This discussion should be read in conjunction with the accompanying unaudited financial statements and notes thereto included elsewhere in this report. The information contained in this discussion is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. We urge you to review carefully the section of this report entitled “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” for a summary of the risks and uncertainties associated with an investment in our securities.

 

Business Overview

 

Co-Diagnostics, Inc., a Utah corporation (the “Company” or “CDI”), is developing robust and innovative molecular tools for detection of infectious diseases, liquid biopsy for cancer screening, and agricultural applications. We develop, manufacture and sell reagents used for diagnostic tests that function via the detection and/or analysis of nucleic acid molecules (DNA or RNA). In connection with the sale of our tests we may sell diagnostic equipment from other manufacturers as self-contained lab systems (which we refer to as the “MDx Device”).

 

Our diagnostics systems enable very rapid, low-cost, molecular testing for organisms and genetic diseases by automating historically complex procedures in both the development and administration of tests. CDI’s technical advance involves a novel approach to Polymerase Chain Reaction (“PCR”) test design of primer and probe structure (“CoPrimers”) that eliminates one of the key vexing issues of PCR amplification, the exponential growth of primer-dimer pairs (false positives and false negatives) which adversely interferes with identification of the target DNA/RNA.

 

We believe our proprietary molecular diagnostics technology is paving the way for innovation in disease detection and life sciences research through our enhanced detection of genetic material. Because we own our platform, we believe we will be able to accomplish this faster and more economically, allowing for significant margins while still positioning the Company to be a low-cost provider of molecular diagnostics and screening services.

 

In addition, continued development has demonstrated the unique properties of our CoPrimer technology that make it ideally suited for a variety of applications where specificity is key to optimal results, including multiplexing several targets, enhanced Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (“SNP”) detection and enrichment for next gen sequencing.

 

Our scientists use the complex mathematics of DNA/RNA test design, to engineer and optimize a DNA/RNA test and to automate algorithms that rapidly screen millions of possible options to pinpoint the optimum design. Dr. Satterfield, our founder, developed the Company’s intellectual property consisting of the predictive mathematical algorithms and proprietary reagents used in the testing process, which together represent a major advance in PCR testing systems. CDI technologies are now protected by eight granted or pending US and foreign patents, as well as certain trade secrets and copyrights. Ownership of our proprietary platform permits us the advantage of avoiding payment of patent royalties required by other PCR test systems, which enables the sale of diagnostic tests at a lower price than competitors, while enabling us to maintain profit margins.

 

16
 

 

We design our tests by identifying the optimal locations on the target gene for amplification and pair the location with the optimized primer and probe structure to achieve outputs that meet the design input requirements identified from market research. This is done by following planned and documented processes, procedures and validation protocols. In other words, the data resulting from our tests verify that we succeeded in designing what we intended at the outset. Verification is a series of testing that concludes that the product is ready to proceed to validation in an evaluation either in our lab or in an independent laboratory setting using initial production tests to confirm that the product as designed meets the user needs.

 

In addition to testing for infectious disease, the technology lends itself to identifying any section of a DNA or RNA strand that describe any type of genetic trait, which creates a number of significant applications. We, in conjunction with our customers, are active in designing and licensing tests that identify genetic traits in plant and animal genomes. We also have three multiplexed tests developed to test mosquitos for the identification of diseases carried by the mosquitos to enable municipalities to concentrate their efforts in spraying mosquito populations on the specific areas known to be breeding the mosquitos that carry deadly viruses.

 

Recent Developments

 

Because we believe that testing for the COVID-19 virus is going to be a consideration for public health worldwide even after the current pandemic has subsided, we have initiated a project to facilitate frequent testing in schools, businesses, the hospitality industry, and at home. We believe this may be accomplished through the development of a low cost, easy to use by non-professionals, testing device that can provide PCR quality test results in less than an hour. This project is possible due to the facts that in 2020 we were able to successfully lyophilize our Logix Smart COVID-19 test reagents and additionally developed a saliva-based collection system that does not require the RNA/DNA extraction. While the final result is the same as if done through a lab-based IVD process, it has the advantages of increased speed and ease of handling thanks to lyophilization. We have engaged the services of a group of professionals who have the expertise and track record to develop the hardware for such a device using our CoPrimers as the reagent chemistry. The device will be available to homes, offices, event facilities, and the travel industry at a cost that will allow screening frequently to prevent spread of the COVID-19 virus and its variants in the future. The device would also be available to test for other pathogens detectable through saliva samples as we develop those tests and offer them to the marketplace.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 Compared to the Three Months ended March 31, 2020

 

Revenues

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, we generated revenues of $20,024,769 compared to revenues of $1,548,528 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in revenue of $18,476,241 was primarily due to sales of our LogixSmart COVID-19 test developed in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Of the total revenue in the three months ended March 31, 2021, $266,515 related to the sale of third party manufactured equipment and consumables, which we sourced and sold to customers to facilitate the sales of our COVID-19 test compared to $105,492 of revenue from the sales of such equipment for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Cost of Revenues

 

We recorded cost of revenues of $3,272,565 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $481,740 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This increase is due to the increase in revenue in 2021 due to the sale of our LogixSmart COVID-19 test. Of the total cost of sales during the three months ended March 31, 2021, $202,636 was from equipment sold to our customers compared to $70,427 for equipment sold to customers for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

17
 

 

Expenses

 

We incurred total operating expenses of $6,417,303 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to total operating expenses of $2,148,737 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to the increase in business activities experienced as a result of our increase in revenue and increased investment in research and development.

 

General and administrative expenses increased $1,476,205, from $1,459,484 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 to $2,935,689 for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to increased activity to support the growth of our business. The primary drivers of the increased expenses related to increases in compensation including stock-based compensation, insurance expense, contributions to retirement plans and increased expenses for professional services.

 

Our sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were $1,197,546, compared to $268,483 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase of $929,063 was primarily a result of increased personnel related expenses, including commissions paid to our sales team, and increased stock-based compensation due to the growth in revenue.

 

Our research and development expenses increased by $1,817,041, from $400,022 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 to $2,217,063 for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The primary increase in expenses was research expenditures of greater than one million dollars for our point-of-care device in addition to increases in salaries and related benefits, including stock-based compensation, as we have added additional employees to our research and development team to increase our product development activities. Additionally, there has been an increase in professional and lab services utilized to further help us in our research and product development activities.

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021 we had total other expense of $450,286, compared to total other income of $16,756 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The decrease was due primarily due to recording a loss of $464,943 from our India joint venture compared to income of $9,181 from our joint venture in the same period in 2020.

 

Net Income

 

We realized net income for the three months ended March 31, 2021 of $7,898,975, compared with a net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2020 of $1,065,193. The increase in net income of $8,964,168 was primarily the result of sales of our LogixSmart COVID-19 test and resulting margins from those sales offset by increased operating expenses as discussed above. Additionally, we recorded income tax expense of $1,985,640 for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At March 31, 2021, we had cash and cash equivalents of $57,788,893 and marketable investment securities of $2,302,644 that could readily be converted into cash if needed. Additionally, our total current assets of March 31, 2021, were $79,436,997 compared to total current liabilities of $5,748,255.

 

Net cash provided by operating activities during the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $12,269,955, compared to cash used in operating activities of $1,335,528 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in cash from operating activities was primarily due to our increased revenue.

 

We received $2,393,244 of cash from investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2021 from maturity of marketable investments and repayment of advances from our India joint venture as compared uses of cash of $250,370 during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $148,981 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 realized from the exercise of options, compared to $18,062,083 for the same period in the prior year. The decrease is primarily due to net proceeds of $18,012,083 received from a series of three registered direct offerings in January and February 2020 pursuant to our shelf registration in addition to receiving $50,000 from the exercise of warrants and options for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

18
 

 

Since commencing sales of our Logix Smart COVID-19 test in March 2020, we have used our cash generated from those sales to fund the increase in our inventories and receivables and pay our operating expenses. We have increased our work force primarily in the area of research and development to complete development of additional tests to enable us to use our distributor network to sell other products throughout the world and remain profitable in the future.

 

We believe that our existing capital resources and the cash generated from future sales will be sufficient to meet our projected operating requirements for the next 12 months. However, our available capital resources may be consumed more rapidly than currently expected and we may need or want to raise additional financing for strategic opportunities.

If needed, we expect additional investment capital to come from (i) additional issuances of our common stock with existing and new investors or (ii) the private placement of other securities with investors similar to those that have provided funding in the past. We may not be able to secure such financing in a timely manner or on favorable terms, if at all.

 

On October 30, 2020, we filed a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No: 333-249651) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The SEC declared the Form S-3 effective on November 5, 2020. Pursuant to a prospectus supplement to the Form S-3, we may offer and sell up to $100 million of the following securities separately or together, in one or more series or classes and in amounts, at prices and on terms described in one or more offerings: common stock; preferred stock; warrants to purchase our securities, each of which may be convertible into equity securities; or units comprised of, or other combinations of, the foregoing securities through underwriting syndicates managed or co-managed by one or more underwriters or dealers, through agents or directly to purchasers. Each time our securities are offered, we will provide a prospectus supplement to the Form S-3 containing more specific information about the particular offering. We did not sell any securities pursuant to the Form S-3.

   

The foregoing estimates, expectations and forward-looking statements are subject to change as we make strategic operating decisions from time to time and as our revenue and expenses fluctuate from period to period.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

Not required under Regulation S-K for “smaller reporting companies.”

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2021. Based on the evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2021, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls were effective.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

As we previously reported on a Form 8-K, on February 22, 2021, our Board of Directors appointed Brian L. Brown, CPA as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer. Other than the appointment of Mr. Brown as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, there have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the three months ended March 31, 2021, that has materially affected or, are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

There have been no material developments to the legal proceedings previously disclosed under Item 3 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

 

From time to time, we may become involved in litigation relating to claims arising out of our operations in the normal course of business. Although we have received inquiries from FINRA, NASDAQ and the SEC, to which we have responded, to the best of our knowledge, no governmental authority is contemplating any proceeding to which we are a party or to which any of our properties or businesses are subject, which would reasonably be likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company.

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

 

We issued the unregistered securities below. For the issuances of unregistered securities, we relied on the exemption from registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, available under Section 4(a)(2) promulgated thereunder due to the fact that such issuances did not involve a public offering of securities.

 

 On April 6, 2021, we issued an aggregate of 1,258 shares of our common stock for services rendered pursuant to a consulting agreement.
