PART I

 

Item 1.Business

 

Global Diversified Marketing Group, Inc. (the “Company”) is a food and snack manufacturer, marketer and distributor through its subsidiary Global Diversified Holdings, Inc (“GDHI”) in the United States, Canada, and Europe. The Company operates through snacks segments offering Italian Wafers, French Madeleines, Wafer Pralines, Mini Honey Wafers, Puffs Bites, Coconut Rolls and other wholesome snacks.

 

The Company (through its subsidiary GDHI) is a successfully operating snack and gourmet food company. The Company travels the world and attends global food trade shows to look for unique products and snacks. When it locates exciting and suitable products, the Company will enter into a non-exclusive manufacturing contract with a factory to produce the product under the Company’s own trademarked brands for sale in the United States and global markets.

 

The products are chosen based on the trend of consumer interests as garnered by the Company as well as certain requests from the buyers as to what they are looking for to add to their product offerings. If the product sales are not within the projected targets, then the Company will discontinue that product. To date, the Company has not discontinued a product for failure to meet its projected targets.

 

Although the Company does not have long-term contracts with any of retail chains, it has been supplying its current chain retail stores for several years. In the food industry, there are no on-going contracts. A buyer will place a Purchase Order with the Company and the Company will deliver on it. If the product does well, the buyer typically will continue to reorder the product. Typical payment schedule for the Company’s products are net 30 day terms.

 

Vending Operations

 

In addition to placing its products with large retail chains, the Company places its products in vending machines throughout the United States. These vending machines are located in malls, service stations and schools. The Company works with vending companies that have, in the aggregate, more than 100,000 machines nationwide. The Company supplies vending companies with product. The Company works directly with some vending companies and with others through its food service distributors. The broker pre-sells the products and the distributor services the accounts. When the distributor services the accounts, the distributor buys product directly from the Company and pays on a net 10 day term.

 

Products and Trademarked Brands

 

The Company currently has five trademark brands. Each brand encompasses numerous SKUs which are brought to market from time to time. The Company produces its products primarily on an “on request” basis from its retail chain buyers for sale through such chains.

 

The Company’s trademark brands are listed on the left below with sample products for several of the trademarked brands itemized:

 

Puff BitesSweet Puffs
 Choco Puffs
  
BonBons de ParisPlain French Madeleines
 Marble French Madeleines

 Coconut Wafer Bites
  
Biscottelli250g Wafers
 Mini Wafer
 Chocolate Filled Croissant
 150g Honey Wafer

Retail Chain Buyers

 

The primary distribution of the Company’s products are through several major retail chains. The Company works with the buyers who place orders for the Company’s products. The retail chain represented by these buyers will then distribute the product to its retail outlets.

 

Marketing

 

The Company’s products appeal to a wide range of consumers, including most all age brackets. The young snackers, classified as those being between the ages of 18-34, tend to consume more snacks then average adult but the gourmet foods reach the broader adult market. The senior market tends to reduce snacks and gourmet foods.

 

The Company sells its products throughout the United States and global markets to buyers which typically represent recognized large retail chain stores. The products are then distributed by the chains to their local outlets. The Company locates and develops snacks and gourmet foods to brand under its trademarks based on feedback and demand. The Company works closely with buyers to determine what products to locate and produce and to supply to the buyers.

 

The Company intends to continue to develop additional gourmet foods and snack products under its own trademarked brands expanding the Company’s offering portfolio. Management believes that the acquisition of small brands that have regional success and adding these to the Company’s national distribution can immediately generate additional revenue streams for the Company.

 

Product Activations

 

The Company will set up blind taste test at neutral locations, in stores, malls and snack shops to let consumers sample products and to determine consumer preferences, and most importantly, find out the basis for those preferences. Is it the taste, the packaging, or Company image? This will also serve as an opportunity for the Company to highlight its products directly to the consumer.

 

The Company anticipates that it will primarily target teens and adults up to age 65. The primary target market is “Young Snackers” that are 18-34 years old and tend to eat more snacks than other age groups. The trend of snacks between meals is especially strong with millennial and younger Americans. A quarter of American millennials, age 23 to 40, report eating four or more times a day, compared to just 10% of Gen X and 9% of Baby Boomers. The Company believes that the senior age bracket (over 65) is not a strong snack market.

 

Competition

 

The snack food industry in the United States is very competitive, particularly in the savory and salty snack segment. Snacks are satisfying consumer cravings around the world with the snacking business growing to US$3.4 billion globally in 2017. In the United States, a study conducted by the Packaging Strategies reported that snacks account for 51% of all food sales, and 92% of adults in the US have snacked within the last 24 hours.

 

The snack industry has experienced an increase demand for “healthy” snacks. In the United States, companies are finding success in the “snackable” fruit and vegetable category, such as grapes or baby carrots. These portable-produce items are then repackaged into individual serving such as dried fruit and nut snack packs, small fresh smoothies and fruit cups. Consumers has shown a very positive response to this snacking sub-category making it a billion dollar industry with an compounded annual growth rate of 10% between 2012 and 2016.

 

A challenge facing entrants is snack and gourmet food market is the dominance of leading snack food producers, particularly the industry leader PepsiCo. Large producers experience a high degree of brand and consumer loyalty and possess sufficient capital to invest in extensive advertising and promotions to obtain a greater market share. Furthermore, companies such as PepsiCo benefit from higher profit margins when compared with small- to medium-sized operators, enabling them to lower their product prices and to engage in price-based competition with competitors. Multinational producers also experience lower per-unit costs due to economies of scale and scope.

The information discussed hereinbelow reflects the results of the Company’s subsidiary, GDHI, a successfully operating company in the snack and gourmet food production, marketing and distribution industry.

 

Discussion of the Year Ended 2017 and Year Ended 2018

 

Revenues and Losses

 

Sales for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 were relatively consistent with sales in 2018 of $1,161,995 and sales in 2017 of $1,298,372. For the year ended December 31, 2018 gross profit was $378,273 with expenses of $431,192 resulting in a loss of $52,919) compared to gross profit of $311,944 with expenses of $292,863 resulting in net income of $19,081 for the year ended December 31, 2017. The increase in expenses included to a large part legal and other professional fees required to effect the Company’s initial public offering.

 

 4 
 

 

Total current liabilities for the year ended December 31, 2018 were $434,111 including $$357,909 in accounts payable and accrued expenses compared to total current liabilities for year ended December 31, 2017 were $358,182 including $237,596 accounts payable and accrued expenses. Loans payable remained relatively consistent of $76,202 for the year ended December 31, 2018 and$75,586 for the year ended December 31, 2017.

 

The Company has four customers that represent 100% of its business in 2018 ranging which is up from such customers representing 95% of the company’s business in 2017. The largest of these customers represents 31% and the smallest 20%. However, the loss of any one of these customers would have a material impact on the Company’s business and revenues until such time as the Company was able to locate other buyers. Presently the Company spends a minimum amount on advertising consisting of $3,424 and $2,015 for the years ended December, 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.

 

During the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, the Company incurred consulting fees of $180,000 and $127,500 respectively, related to services provided to it by the president of the Company.

 

The Company has two short term credit line debts which have remained relatively consistent in the years ending December 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017:

 

Blue Vine Credit Line $59,125  $60,147 
Fundbox Credit Line  17,077   8,077 

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

GDHI has not incurred any significant debt during the development of its operations and as of December 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017. The Company had lease payments for its office space of $17,600 in 2017, $19,334 in 2018 and has continuing annual lease obligations of $19,923 in 2019, $20,517 in 2020 and $21,132 in 2021.

 

Results of Operations

 

The Company has not experienced any unusual or infrequent events or transactions or any significant economic changes that have materially affected the amount of reported income from continuing operations The Company does not believe that its operations and revenues have been impacted by any economic inflation. The Company anticipates that its sales may increase as it develops it health food brands targeted to the more economic and health-aware consumer.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements.

 

The Company has no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on its financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires making estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. The estimates are based on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis of making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

  

Going Concern

 

The Company’s independent auditor has indicated substantial doubt about the Company continuing as a going concern based on the Company’s accumulated deficit and accrued liabilities.

 

The Company attributes the losses in 2018 to the legal fees incurred in order to go public.  The Company is in a period of expansion which causes some cash flow changes. The Company has a strong relationship with its suppliers and has good credit terms with them. In order to meet such expansion demands the Company has a revolving credit facility in place.

 

The Company has projected that its expansion and placements will be above expectations in 2019 and will create a strong year in revenue and net profits. The Company has had discussions with its clients what needs to be done to increase orders in December 2019.

 

The Company is undertaking a public offering of its 2,500,000 shares of its common stock at $2 per share to raise funds for expansion and distribution.

Item 8.Financial Statements and Supplementary Data

 

The financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 are attached hereto.

 

Item 9.Changes in and Disagreements with Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure

 

There were no disagreements with the Company’s accountants on accounting or financial disclosure for the period covered by this report.

 

Item 9A.Controlsand Procedures

 

Pursuant to Rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Exchange Act Rules. This evaluation was done as of the end of the fiscal year under the supervision and with the participation of theCompany’s principal executive officer (who is also the principal financial officer). There have been no significant changes in internal controls or in other factors that could significantly affect internal controls subsequent to the date of the evaluation. Based upon that evaluation, the principal officer believes that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective in gathering, analyzing and disclosing information needed to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by the Company in its periodic reports is recorded, summarized and processed timely. The principal executive officer is directly involved in the day-to-day operations of the Company

 

Management’s Report of Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

The Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting in accordance with the Rule 13a-15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Company’s sole officer, its president, conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2018, based on the criteria established in Internal Control Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (2013). Based on this evaluation, management concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was effective as of December 31, 2018, based on those criteria. A control system can provide only reasonably, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues have been detected.

 

 6 
 

 

BF Borgers CPA PC., Lakewood, Colorado, the independent registered public accounting firm of the Company, has not issued an attestation report on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as no such report is required for a smaller reporting company.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

In the fourth fiscal quarter of the year, the Company changed control and consequently the Company’s internal controls over its financial reporting were transferred to new management. However, such control rested with the principal officer prior to the change of control and with the change of control it continues to rest with the principal officer, the Company’s sole officer. Thus such change has not materially affected, or is not reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

Item 10.Directors, Executive Officers, and Corporate Governance

 

Officers and Directors

Name Positions and Offices Held
   
Paul Adler Director, President, Secretary, Chief Financial Officer

 

Paul Adler is the sole executive officer and director of the Company and its majority shareholder.

 

There are no agreements or understandings for the officer or director to resign at the request of another person and the above-named officer and director is not acting on behalf of nor will act at the direction of any other person.

 

Paul Adler

President, Secretary, Chief Financial Officer and sole director of the Company.

 

Mr. Adler has a decade of experience in food manufacturing and marketing industries having served as a board member in two food manufacturing companies. He developed a strong desire to bring healthy beverages and snacks to the market which began after he saw there were no healthy alternatives. Mr. Adler spent the first decade of his career in the securities industry as a broker/dealer company branch manager where he supervised sixteen registered representative and was involved in all aspects of investment banking including public offerings and private placements. In 2008, Mr. Adler retired from the securities industry and established Beverage Brands, a company offering a line of healthy RTD teas and MATE fusion tea.

 

Beverage Brands’ product placement reached over 2500 supermarkets in the Northeast and South. In 2012, Mr. Adler established Fruttata Brand, a line of freeze dried healthy fruit snacks, under the corporate umbrella of Global Diversified Holdings, Inc., the subsidiary of the Company.

Directors

 

The Company is authorized to have at least one director but no more than five.

 

Director Independence

 

The Board of Directors has determined that it does not have any independent directors as that term is defined by NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5605(a)(2). In assessing the independence of the directors, the Board considers any transactions, relationships and arrangements between our Company and our independent directors or their affiliated companies. This review is based primarily on responses of the directors to questions in a director and officer questionnaire regarding employment, business, familial, compensation and other relationships with our Company or our management.

 

 8 
 

 

Director Compensation

 

Directors do not receive any compensation for serving on the Board of Directors.

 

Committees and Terms

 

The Board of Directors has not established any committees.

 

Conflicts of Interest

 

There are no binding guidelines or procedures for resolving potential conflicts of interest. Failure by management to resolve conflicts of interest in favor of the Company could result in liability of management to the Company. However, any attempt by shareholders to enforce a liability of management to the Company would most likely be prohibitively expensive and time consuming.

The Company has not at this time adopted a Code of Ethics pursuant to rules described in Regulation S-K. The Company anticipates that it will adopt a code of ethics when either the number of directors or the number of employees increases.

Corporate Governance

 

For reasons similar to those described above, the Company does not have a nominating nor audit committee of the board of directors. At this time, the Company has only one officer and one director. The Company promotes accountability for adherence to honest and ethical conduct; endeavors to provide full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that the Company files and will file with the SEC and in other public communications made by the Company; and strives to be compliant with applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations. The Company has not formally adopted a written code of business conduct and ethics that governs the Company’s employees, officers and Directors as the Company is not required to do so.

 

In lieu of an Audit Committee, the Company’s director is responsible for reviewing and making recommendations concerning the selection of outside auditors, reviewing the scope, results and effectiveness of the annual audit of the Company’s financial statements and other services provided by the Company’s independent public accountants. The Company’s director reviews the Company’s internal accounting controls, practices and policies.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

To the shareholders and the board of directors of Global Diversified Marketing Group, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Global Diversified Marketing Group, Inc. as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company’s significant operating losses raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2018

 

NOTE 1 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Nature of Business

 

Global Diversified Marketing Group, Inc. (the “Company”), formerly known as Dense Forest Acquisition Corporation, was incorporated in Delaware on December 1, 2017 and changed its name on June 13, 2018 as part of a change in control. As part of the change in control, its then officers and directors resigned and contributed back to the Company 19,500,000 shares of the 20,000,000 outstanding shares of its common stock, and appointed new officers and directors. On June 14, 2018 new management of the Company issued 12.500,000 shares of its common stock to Paul Adler, the then president of the Company.

 

On November 26, 2018 the Company effected the acquisition of Global Diversified Holdings, Inc. (“GDHI”), a private New York company owned by the Company’s president, with the issuance of 200 shares of the Company’s common stock in exchange for all of the outstanding shares of GDHI. GDHI became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and its activity for the years 2018 and 2017 are reflected in these financial statements along with the expenses of the Company.

 

Prior to the acquisition of GDHI, the Company had no business and no operations. Pursuant to the acquisition, the Company acquired the operations and business plan of GDHI, which imports and sells snack food products. For accounting purposes, GDHI is considered to be the acquirer, and the equity is presented as if the business combination had occurred on January 1, 2017

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America and are presented in US dollars. The Company has adopted a December 31 year end.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash, accounts receivable from customers, accounts payable, and loans payable. The carrying amounts of these financial instruments approximates fair value due either to length of maturity or interest rates that approximate prevailing market rates unless otherwise disclosed in these financial statements.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the balance sheet. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

As of December 31, 2018, the Company has not issued any share-based payments to its employees. Under the modified prospective method the Company uses, stock compensation expense includes compensation expense for all stock-based compensation awards granted, based on the grant-date estimated fair value.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2018

 

NOTE 1 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with the original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents. At December 31, 2018 and 2017, the Company had $21,515 and $0 of cash.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are generated from sales of snack food products to retail outlets throughout the United States. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers and adjusts credit limits based on customer payment and current credit worthiness, as determined by review of their current credit information. The Company continuously monitors credit limits for its customers and maintains a provision for estimated credit losses based on its historical experience and any specific customer issues that have been identified. An allowance for doubtful; accounts is provided against accounts receivable for amounts management believes may be uncollectible. The Company historically has not had issues collecting on its accounts receivable from its customers. The Company factors certain of its receivables to improve its cash flow.

 

Bad debt expense for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 was $0; the allowance for doubtful accounts at December 31, 2018 and 2017 was $0.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consists of snack food products and packaging supplies, and are stated at the lower of cost or market.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, net of accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the assets. Maintenance, repairs, and renewals that do not materially add to the value of the equipment nor appreciably prolong its useful life are charged to expense as incurred.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Beginning January 1, 2018, the Company implemented ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Although the new revenue standard is expected to have an immaterial impact, if any, on our ongoing net income, we did implement changes to our processes related to revenue recognition and the control activities within them. These included the development of new policies based on the five-step model provided in the new revenue standard, ongoing contract review requirements, and gathering of information provided for disclosures.

 

The Company recognizes revenue from product sales or services rendered when control of the promised goods are transferred to our clients in an amount that reflects the consideration to which we expect to be entitled in exchange for those goods and services. To achieve this core principle we apply the following five steps: identify the contract with the client, identify the performance obligations in the contract, determine the transaction price, allocate the transaction price to performance obligations in the contract and recognize revenues when or as the Company satisfies a performance obligation.

 

Advertising and Marketing Costs

 

The Company’s policy regarding advertising and marketing is to record the expense when incurred. The Company incurred advertising and marketing expenses of $3,424 and $2,015 during the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2018

 

NOTE 1 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company continually monitors events and changes in circumstances that could indicate carrying amounts of long-lived assets may not be recoverable. When such events or changes in circumstances are present, the Company assesses the recoverability of long-lived assets by determining whether the carrying value of such assets will be recovered through undiscounted expected future cash flows. If the total of the future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of those assets, the Company recognizes an impairment loss based on the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or the fair value less costs to sell.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are computed using the asset and liability method. Under the asset and liability method, deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the currently enacted tax rates and laws. A valuation allowance is provided for the amount of deferred tax assets that, based on available evidence, are not expected to be realized.

 

The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, with the consent of its stockholder, had elected to be taxed as an S Corporation under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. Instead of paying federal corporate income taxes, the stockholder(s) of an S Corporation are taxed individually on their proportionate share of the Company’s taxable income. Therefore, prior to the business combination discussed above, the Company had made no provision for income taxes. Effective with the business combination, the wholly owned subsidiary became a C-corporation, and the loss incurred for the period as a C-corporation approximated $270,000. See Note 7.

 

The Company’s income tax returns are open for examination for up to the past three years under the statute of limitations. There are no tax returns currently under examination.

 

Comprehensive Income

 

The Company has which established standards for reporting and display of comprehensive income, its components and accumulated balances. When applicable, the Company would disclose this information on its Statement of Stockholders’ Equity. Comprehensive income comprises equity except those resulting from investments by owners and distributions to owners. The Company has not had any significant transactions that are required to be reported in other comprehensive income.

 

Basic Income (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic income (loss) per share has been calculated based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company does not expect the adoption of recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a significant impact on the Company’s results of operations, financial position or cash flow.

 

Going Concern

 

As of December 31, 2018, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $21,515 and an accumulated deficit of $23,734.  Additionally, the Company had accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $357,909. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financials have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern and, accordingly, do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. If the Company is in fact unable to continue as a going concern, the shareholders may lose some or all of their investment in the Company.

 

NOTE 2 – STOCK REDEMPTION PAYABLE

 

On September 7, 2016, the Company entered into a Stock Redemption and Purchase Agreement with a 50% shareholder to purchase back his 100 common shares. The shares had been purchased for $70,000 and the Company agreed to buy them back for $90,000. Payments required under the Agreement are $3,750 per month starting on January 2, 2017. At December 31, 2018 and 2017, the Company owed $0 and $45,000, respectively. See Note 3.
