Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

 Certain statements that we make from time to time, including statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act. All statements other than statements of historical fact contained in this Form 10-Q are forward-looking statements. These statements, among other things, relate to our business strategy, goals and expectations concerning our future operations, prospects, plans and objectives of management. The words “anticipate”, “believe”, “continue”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “intend”, “may”, “plan”, “predict”, “project”, “will”, and similar terms and phrases are used to identify forward-looking statements in this presentation.

 

Our operations involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are outside our control, and any one of which, or a combination of which, could materially affect our results of operations and whether the forward-looking statements ultimately prove to be correct. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and trends that we believe may affect our financial condition, results of operations, business strategy, short-term and long-term business operations and objectives, and financial needs. Forward-looking statements in this Form 10-Q include, without limitation, statements reflecting management’s expectations for future financial performance and operating expenditures (including our ability to continue as a going concern, to raise additional capital and to succeed in our future operations), expected growth, profitability and business outlook, increased operating expenses.

 

Forward-looking statements are only current predictions and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements to be materially different from those anticipated by such statements. These factors include, among other things, the unknown risks and uncertainties that we believe could cause actual results to differ from these forward looking statements as set forth under the heading, “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this Form 10-Q. New risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of the risks and uncertainties that could have an impact on the forward-looking statements, including without limitation, risks and uncertainties relating to:

  

  · Our ability to obtain and maintain sufficient working capital financing on acceptable terms to continue as a going concern;
  · Our ability to sustain our innovative business model in the MMA ticket service industry;
  · Our ability to secure new, and maintain existing relationships with MMA promoters utilizing our ticket platform;
  · Our ability to keep pace with technology advancements impacting our ticketing platform and advancements adopted by our competitors.
  · Our ability to meet continuing listing standards on the NASDAQ Capital Market, including its requirement that the minimum bid price for our common stock be at or above $1.00; and it’s requirement that we have minimum capital of $2.5 million; standards we are not currently meeting;
  · Our ability to consummate the acquisition of SCWorx.

 

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements contained in this Form 10-Q are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements. In light of inherent risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the future events and trends discussed in this Form 10-Q may not occur and actual results could differ materially and adversely from those anticipated or implied in the forward-looking statements. Except as required by law, we are under no duty to update or revise any of such forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, after the date of this Form 10-Q.

 

You should read this Form 10-Q with the understanding that our actual future results, levels of activity, performance and events and circumstances may be materially different from what we expect.

 

All references to “Alliance,” “Alliance MMA,” “we,” “us,” “our” or the “Company” mean Alliance MMA, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and where appropriate, its wholly owned subsidiaries.

Liquidity and Going Concern

 

The Company’s primary need for liquidity is to fund the working capital needs of the business, and general corporate purposes. The Company has incurred losses and experienced negative operating cash flows since the inception of operations in October 2016.

 

In August 2017, the Company completed a capital raise of $1.5 million through the private placement of 1,500,000 units, which consisted of one share of common stock and a warrant to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $1.50. The funds were used for operating capital and a business acquisition.

 

In October and November 2017, the Company completed a capital raise of $487,500 through the private placement of 390,000 units, which consisted of one share of common stock and 0.50 of a warrant to purchase one share common stock at an exercise price of $1.75, (an aggregate of 195,000 warrants). The funds were used for operating capital.

 

In December 2017, the Company issued a promissory note to an individual for $300,000 of borrowings for operating capital leading up to our further public offering in January 2018.

 

In January 2018, the Company completed a capital raise of $2.15 million gross, through the public placement of 2,150,000 units, which consisted of one share of common stock and .90 of a warrant to purchase common stock at an exercise price of $1.10, (an aggregate of 1,935,000 warrants). The warrant exercise price ratcheted down to $0.31 in June 2018 and down to $0.29 in July 2018 which is the floor price of the ratchet. The funds were used for operating capital.

 

In February 2018, the underwriter exercised their overallotment option resulting in the sale of an additional 50,000 shares for $50,000 and issuance of an additional 272,500 warrants.

 

In January 2018, the Company paid $345,000 to the promissory note holder of December 2017 as full payment of principal and interest.

 

In April 2018, the Company issued a promissory note to each of Joseph Gamberale and Joel Tracy, board members, for $150,000, respectively, for total borrowings of $300,000. The funds were used for operating capital.

 

In May 2018, the Company issued a promissory note to an individual for $200,000 of borrowings for operating capital. In September 2018, the Company agreed to issue the note holder 200,000 common shares and 50,000 warrants with an exercise price of $0.29 and term of five years in exchange for the noteholder’s agreement to convert all interest under the loan into shares of the Company’s common stock, and extend the note to December 31, 2018.

 

In June 2018, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (“SPA”) with SCWorx Acquisition Corp. (“SCWorx”), under which it agreed to sell up to $1 million in principal amount of convertible notes and warrants to purchase up to 671,142 shares of common stock. The note is convertible into shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.3725 and the warrants have an exercise price of $0.3725.

 

On June 29, 2018, the Company sold SCWorx convertible notes in the principal amount of $500,000 and warrants to purchase 335,570 shares of common stock, for an aggregate purchase price of $500,000. The Note bears interest at 10% annually and matures on June 27, 2019. The warrant has an exercise price of $0.3725, term of five years and was vested upon grant. SCWorx agreed in the SPA to fund (i) a second tranche of $250,000 upon the signing of a merger agreement with the Purchaser and (ii) a third tranche of $250,000 upon mutual agreement of the Purchaser and Company.

 

Pursuant to the SPA, on July 31, 2018, the Company sold SCWorx convertible notes in the principal amount of $60,000 and warrants to purchase 40,269 shares of common stock, for an aggregate purchase price of $60,000. The Note bears interest at 10% annually and matures on July 31, 2019. The warrant has an exercise price of $0.3725, term of five years and was vested upon grant.

 

On August 20, 2018, the Company entered into the Stock Exchange Agreement (“SEA”) with SCWorx. Under the Agreement, the Company agreed to purchase from the SCWorx shareholders all the issued and outstanding capital stock of SCWorx, in exchange for which the Company agreed to issue at the closing that number of shares of Company common stock equal to the quotient of $50,000,000 divided by the closing price of the Company’s common stock upon the completion of the acquisition subject to a cap of $0.67 per share. 

 

Pursuant to the SPA, on August 21, 2018, SCWorx funded $160,000 of the remaining $190,000 of the first $250,000 tranche which was due upon execution of the Stock Exchange Agreement with SCWorx and the Company issued warrants to SCWorx to purchase 127,517 shares of common stock. The warrant has an exercise price of $0.3725, term of five years and was vested upon grant. As of September 30, 2018 SCWorx has funded $720,000. To date SCWorx has funded $800,000 of the aggregate $1 million contemplated by the SCWorx SPA.

 

Beginning in August 2018, warrant holders from the January 2018 public placement began to exercise their warrant holdings. For the three months ended September 30, 2018, the Company received $306,457 in relation to the exercise of 1,056,750 warrants, resulting in the issuance of the same number of common shares.

 

The Company currently has virtually no cash on hand, has an accumulated deficit of approximately $30.0 million, has consistently experienced quarterly net losses and negative cash flows, and is operating with negative working capital, all indicating there is substantial doubt with respect to our ability to continue as a going concern. As of the date of this report, the Company has insufficient cash to support the business for the one year period following the date of this report. Unless the Company can generate sufficient revenue to cover operating costs, which it has not been able to do, it will need to continue to raise capital by selling shares of common stock or by borrowing funds. Management cannot provide any assurances that the Company will generate sufficient revenue to continue as a going concern or that it will be successful in raising capital on commercially reasonable terms or at all.

The accompanying interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, have been prepared by the Company in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in the United States (“U.S.”) for interim financial information. The amounts as of December 31, 2017 have been derived from the Company’s annual audited financial statements. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted in accordance with such rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments necessary (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) to state fairly the financial position of the Company and its results of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows as of and for the periods presented. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the annual audited financial statements and notes thereto as of and for the year ended December 31, 2017, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, filed on April 16, 2018 (the “Form 10-K”).

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported and disclosed in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. These estimates relate to revenue recognition, the valuation and recognition of stock-based compensation expense, loss contingencies, discontinued operations and income taxes. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

There have been no significant changes in the Company’s significant accounting policies during the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to the Significant Accounting Policies described in the Form 10-K with the exception of the revenue recognition policy.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Ticket Service Revenue (Current Operations)

 

The Company acts as a ticket agent for third-party ticket sales and charges a fee per transaction for collecting the cash on ticket sales and remits the remaining net amount to the third-party promoter upon completion of the event or request from the promoter. The Company’s ticket service fee is recognized when it satisfies the performance obligation by transferring control of the purchased ticket to a customer.

 

Promotion Revenue (Discontinued Operations)

 

The Company recognized revenue, net of sales tax, when it satisfied a performance obligation by transferring control over a product or service to a customer. Revenue from admission, sponsorship, pay per view (“PPV”), apparel, and concession were recognized at a point in time when an event was exhibited to a customer live or PPV, and when a customer took possession of apparel or food and beverage offerings. Promotion revenue is a component of discontinued operations.

 

Fighter Commission Revenue (Discontinued Operations)

 

The Company recognized revenue when it satisfied a performance obligation by transferring control over a product or service to a customer. The Company recognized commission revenue upon the completion of a contracted athlete’s performance.

 

Business Combinations

 

The Company includes the results of operations of the businesses that it has acquired in its consolidated results as of the respective dates of acquisition.

 

The Company allocates the fair value of the purchase consideration of its acquisitions to the tangible assets, liabilities and intangible assets acquired, based on their estimated fair values. The excess of the fair value of purchase consideration over the fair values of these identifiable assets and liabilities is recorded as goodwill. The primary items that generate goodwill include the value of the synergies between the acquired businesses and Alliance as well as the acquired assembled workforce, neither of which qualifies as an identifiable intangible asset. The fair value of contingent consideration associated with acquisitions is remeasured each reporting period and adjusted accordingly. Acquisition and integration related costs are recognized separately from the business combination and are expensed as incurred.

 

We allocate goodwill to the reporting units of the business that are expected to benefit from the business combination.

 

For additional information regarding the Company's acquisitions, refer to "Note 4 Business Combinations."

  

Goodwill and Purchased Identified Intangible Assets   

  

Goodwill

 

Goodwill is recorded as the difference, if any, between the aggregate consideration paid for an acquisition and the fair value of the net tangible and identified intangible assets acquired under a business combination. Goodwill also includes acquired assembled workforce, which does not qualify as an identifiable intangible asset. The Company reviews impairment of goodwill annually in the fourth quarter, or more frequently if events or circumstances indicate that the goodwill might be impaired. The Company first assesses qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform the quantitative goodwill impairment test. If, after assessing the totality of events or circumstances, the Company determines that it is not more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, then the quantitative goodwill impairment test is unnecessary. If, based on the qualitative assessment, it is determined that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, then the Company proceeds to perform the quantitative goodwill impairment test. The Company first determines the fair value of a reporting unit using weighted results derived from an income approach and a market approach. The income approach is estimated through the discounted cash flow method based on assumptions about future conditions such as future revenue growth rates, new product, services and technology introductions, gross margins, operating expenses, discount rates, future economic and market conditions, and other assumptions. The market approach estimates the fair value of the Company’s equity by utilizing the market comparable method which is based on revenue multiples from comparable companies in similar lines of business. The Company then compares the derived fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount. If the carrying value of a reporting unit exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss will be recognized in an amount equal to that excess, limited to the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit.

 

During the second quarter of 2018, the Company recorded a goodwill impairment charge related to the SuckerPunch acquisition of $1.5 million, which is included as a component of Net loss from discontinued operations, net of tax for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

Purchased Identified Intangible Assets

 

Identified finite-lived intangible assets consist of venue relationships, ticketing software, tradename and brand, fighter contracts, promoter relationships and sponsor relationships, resulting from business combinations. The Company’s identified intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives, ranging from three to ten years. The Company makes judgments about the recoverability of finite-lived intangible assets whenever facts and circumstances indicate that the useful life is shorter than originally estimated or that the carrying amount of assets may not be recoverable. If such facts and circumstances exist, the Company assesses recoverability by comparing the projected undiscounted net cash flows associated with the related asset or group of assets over their remaining lives against their respective carrying amounts. Impairments, if any, are based on the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value of those assets. If the useful life is shorter than originally estimated, the Company would accelerate the rate of amortization and amortize the remaining carrying value over the new shorter useful life. The Company evaluates the carrying value of indefinite-lived intangible assets on an annual basis, and an impairment charge would be recognized to the extent that the carrying amount of such assets exceeds their estimated fair value. For further discussion of goodwill and identified intangible assets, see “Note 5-Goodwill and Purchased Identifiable Intangible Assets.”

 

During the second quarter of 2018, the Company recorded an intangible impairment charge related to the SuckerPunch acquisition of $182,546 which is included as a component of net loss from discontinued operations, net of tax for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

During 2017, we completed several business acquisitions.

The note was personally guaranteed by Joseph Gamberale, one of our board members.

 

In May 2018, the Company issued a promissory note to an individual for $90,000 of borrowings for operating capital. The note had a maturity of June 30, 2018, an annual interest rate of 6%, and was paid in full in June 2018, including interest of $625. The note was secured by our common shares in Round Table Creative, Inc.

 

On May 9, 2018, the Company borrowed $200,000 from an individual pursuant to a promissory note. The note bears interest at 40% annually and initially matured on June 25, 2018. In June 2018, the note holder agreed to extend the maturity to December 31, 2018. In September 2018, the Company agreed to issue the note holder 200,000 common shares with a fair value of $58,000 and 50,000 warrants with an exercise price of $0.29, term of 5 years, and Black-Scholes fair value of $8,500, in exchange for the note holder’s agreement to convert all interest under the loan into common stock and extend the note to December 31, 2018. Mr. Gamberale personally guaranteed the note and Mr. Gamberale and Mr. Tracy agreed to subordinate their existing notes to the repayment of this note. Interest expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $22,471 and $34,425, respectively.

 

On June 28, 2018, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with SCWorx, under which the Company agreed to sell up to $1M in principal amount of convertible notes and Warrants to purchase up to 671,142 shares of common stock. The Note is convertible into shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.3725 and bears interest at 10% annually. The Warrants are exercisable for shares of common stock at an exercise price of $0.3725.

 

On June 29, 2018, the Company sold the SCWorx convertible notes in the principal amount of $500,000 and warrants to purchase 335,570 shares of common stock, for an aggregate purchase price of $500,000. The Note bears interest at 10% annually and matures on June 27, 2019. SCWorx agreed in the SPA to fund (i) a second tranche of $250,000 upon the signing of a merger agreement with the Purchaser and (ii) a third tranche of $250,000 upon mutual agreement of the Purchaser and Company.

 

Pursuant to the SCWorx SPA, on July 31, 2018, the Company sold SCWorx convertible notes in the principal amount of $60,000 and warrants to purchase 40,269 shares of common stock, for an aggregate purchase price of $60,000. The Note bears interest at 10% annually and matures on July 31, 2019. The warrant has an exercise price of $0.3725, term of five years and was vested upon grant.

 

On August 20, 2018, the Company entered into the Stock Exchange Agreement (SEA) with SCWorx Corp., Under the Agreement, the Company agreed to purchase from the SCWorx shareholders all the issued and outstanding capital stock of SCWorx, in exchange for which the Company agreed to issue at the closing that number of shares of Company common stock equal to the quotient of $50,000,000 divided by the closing price of the Company’s common stock upon the completion of the acquisition (subject to a cap of $0.67 per share).

 

Consummation of the transactions contemplated by the SEA is subject to satisfaction of a variety of conditions, including approval by the Company and SCWorx’ shareholders and the combined company meeting the listing qualifications for initial inclusion on the Nasdaq Stock Market.

 

Consequently, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to consummate the transactions contemplated by the SEA. If the Company completes the planned acquisition, management may dispose of the fighter management and ticketing businesses and focus on the SCWorx SAAS business, which is focused on streamlining the three core healthcare provider systems; Supply Chain, Financial and Clinical (EMR) enabling providers’ enterprise systems to work as one automated and seamless business management system.

 

Pursuant to the SCWorx SPA, on August 21, 2018 and October 16, 2018 , SCWorx funded $160,000 and $30,000, respectively, of the remaining $190,000 of the $250,000 tranche which was due upon execution of the Stock Exchange Agreement with SCWorx, for which SCWorx was issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 127,517 shares of common stock. The warrant has an exercise price of $.3725, term of five years, and was vested upon grant. On November 6, 2018, SCWorx funded an additional $50,000 convertible note with a conversion price of $.30 per share, for which it received an additional 41,667 warrants, with an exercise price of $.30 per share. SCWorx has to date funded $800,000 of the aggregate $1 million contemplated by the SCWorx SPA.

  

The Company applied a portion of the proceeds of the $500,000 note to repay the aforementioned $90,000 promissory note. Accordingly, the lien on the capital stock of SuckerPunch Entertainment was released. During the third quarter 2018, the SuckerPunch business was disposed.

 

As of September 30, 2018, the Company received $720,000 under the agreement.

 

As of the date of this filing, the Company has received $800,000 under the agreement.

Note 7. Commitments and Contingencies

 

Operating Leases

 

The Company does not own any real property. The Company’s principal executive offices are located at an office complex in New York, New York, comprised of approximately twenty thousand square feet of shared office space and services that we are leasing.  The lease had an original one-year term that commenced on December 1, 2015, which was renewed until November 30, 2018. The lease allows for the limited use of private offices, conference rooms, mail handling, videoconferencing, and certain other business services.

 

In November 2016, the Company entered a sublease agreement for office and video production space in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. The lease expires on June 30, 2019. In June 2018, the Company abandoned the facility and on June 21, 2018 the sub-landlord filed suit against the Company for non-payment of rent. Currently the Company is in negotiations to settle the remaining payments due under the leases and has accrued the remaining amount due of $167,475, at June 30, 2018, within current liabilities - discontinued operations of the condensed consolidated balance sheet.

 

With the acquisition of FCOC, the Company assumed a lease for office space in Orange County, California. The lease originally expired in September 2018. In conjunction with the discontinued operations the Company agreed to sell Fight Club OC to the former owner Roy Englebrecht which included the Orange County, California office lease.

 

Lease expense for the Cherry Hill, New Jersey and Orange County, CA facilities is included as a component of discontinued operation - general and administrative expense.

 

Each of the acquired businesses operated from home offices or shared office space arrangements.

 

Warrants

 

In conjunction with the stock offering completed in January 2018, the Company issued warrants with a provision requiring the Company to pay the warrant holder the Black - Scholes value of the warrant upon a fundamental transaction. On August 20, 2018, the Company entered into a Stock Exchange Agreement with SCWorx. which upon closing will qualify as a fundamental transaction within the warrant agreement. For illustration purposes only, if the stock price at closing was $0.67, the Black - Scholes value would approximate $0.53 per share based upon todays volatility and risk-free interest rate. As of November 12, 2018, there were 1.4 million warrants outstanding which are subject to this Black – Scholes payout provision.

Legal Proceedings

 

In conducting our business, we may become involved in legal proceedings. We will accrue a liability for such matters when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated. When only a range of possible loss can be established, the most probable amount in the range is accrued. If no amount within this range is a better estimate than any other amount within the range, the minimum amount in the range is accrued. The accrual for a litigation loss contingency might include, for example, estimates of potential damages, outside legal fees and other directly related costs expected to be incurred.

 

In April and May 2017, respectively, two purported securities class action complaints—Shapiro v. Alliance MMA, Inc., No. 1:17-cv-2583 (D.N.J.), and Shulman v. Alliance MMA, Inc., No. 1:17-cv-3282 (S.D.N.Y.)—were filed against the Company and certain of its officers in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey and the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, respectively. The complaints alleged that the defendants violated certain provisions of the federal securities laws, and purported to seek damages in an amount to be alleged on behalf of a class of shareholders who purchased the Company’s common stock pursuant or traceable to the Company’s initial public offering. In July 2017, the plaintiffs in the New York action voluntarily dismissed their claim and, on March 8, 2018, the parties reached a settlement to the New Jersey action in which the carrier for our directors and officers liability insurance policy has agreed to cover Alliance’s financial obligations, including legal fees, under the settlement arrangement, subject to our payment of a deductible of $250,000, of which approximately $103,000 is included within accounts payable. The complaint was dismissed in October 2018.

 

In October 2017, a shareholder derivative claim based on the same facts that were alleged in the class action complaints was filed against the directors of the Company in the District Court for the District New Jersey; however, a complaint was not served on the defendants and, on February 2, 2018 the claim was dismissed by the District Court.

 

In June 2018, the landlord of our Cherry Hill, New Jersey office filed suit against the Company for non-payment of rent. Currently the Company is in negotiations to settle the remaining payments due under the lease. The Company recorded $167,000 of expense related to the lease within discontinued operations - general and administrative for the cost of the remaining payments under the lease agreement. This amount is accrued for at June 30, 2018 within the current liabilities - discontinued operations balance.

 

In June 2018, the Company’s former President, Robert Haydak, filed suit against the Company. The Company and Mr. Haydak resolved the suit effective July 2018 with the Company agreeing on a cash settlement of $50,000, and delivery of certain MMA promotion fixed assets. The Company has accrued the settlement as of June 30, 2018 which is included within discontinued operations - general and administrative expense and current liabilities - discontinued operations balance.

 

On October 19, 2018, the company issued Red Diamond Partners 794,483 shares of common stock in consideration of a “most favored nation” clause contained in a common stock subscription agreement. In relation to the settlement agreement the parties terminated the original agreement.

 

Earn Out

 

Management evaluated the financial performance of CFFC, COGA, HFC, Shogun, V3, CageTix, and IT Fight Series in 2017 compared to the earn out thresholds as described in the respective Asset Purchase Agreements. Based upon management’s estimates, the Company recorded an earn out liability in 2017 of approximately $310,000 related to Shogun’s financial results. In conjunction with the cessation of the professional MMA promotions, the Company sold the Shogun promotion to the former owner and settled the earn out liability with the issuance of 366,072 options with an exercise price of $0.35 per option and Black-Scholes value of $94,000.

 

Note 8. Stockholders’ Equity

 

Stock Offering

 

On January 9, 2018, the Company entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Maxim Group LLC, acting as sole book-running manager (the “Underwriter”), for a secondary public offering (the “Offering”) of a combination of 2,150,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) of the Company, and 1,935,000 warrants to purchase 1,935,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Warrants”). Each share of Common Stock was sold in combination with a Warrant to purchase 0.90 shares of Common Stock. The Warrants have a five-year term and an original exercise price of $1.10 per share.

  

The warrants have a price adjustment provision (“ratchet”) in cases where the Company sells common stock or settles liabilities with equity, in each case at a lower price than is reflected in the Warrants. During June, July and August, the Company completed qualifying transactions under the SCWorx note resulting in the Warrant exercise price being adjusted to $0.31 in June and $0.29 in July, which is the lowest amount the warrant can be repriced to. Based upon ASU 2017-11, the decrease in the exercise price of the warrant has been fair valued at approximately $190,000 and accounted for as a non-cash dividend within the condensed consolidated balance sheet. The warrant also has a provision requiring the Company to pay the warrant holders the Black-Scholes value of the warrant upon consummation of a fundamental transaction. On August 20, 2018, the Company entered a stock exchange agreement with SCWorx which, upon closing, meets this definition. For illustration purposes only, if the stock price at closing was $0.67, the Black-Scholes value world approximate $0.53 per share based upon todays volatility and risk-free interest rate. As of the date this filing, there were 1,141,500, warrants outstanding which are subject to this Black-Scholes payout provision.

 

The Offering price was $1.00 per share of Common Stock and related Warrant and the Underwriter had agreed to purchase the shares of Common Stock and related Warrants from the Company at a 7.0% discount to the Offering price. In addition, the Company granted to the Underwriter a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 322,500 shares of Common Stock and/or 290,250 Warrants to purchase 290,250 shares of Common Stock at the same price to cover over-allotments, if any. The underwriter exercised this option is February 2018 resulting in an additional $50,000 from the sale and issuance of 50,000 shares and 272,500 warrants. The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriter, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, other obligations of the parties and termination provisions.

 

The gross proceeds to the Company from the Offering and overallotment were approximately $2.2 million before underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses.

 

The Offering was made pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 that was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 1, 2017 and a prospectus supplement, dated January 9, 2018, together with the accompanying base prospectus.

 

One of our board members, Joseph Gamberale, participated in the offering and acquired 25,000 units which included 22,500 warrants.

 

Common Stock Private Placements

 

In July 2017, the board of directors approved the issuance of up to $2.5 million of our common stock in one or more private placements.

 

In July 2017, Board members and an employee executed subscription agreements for 513,761 units at a purchase price of $1.09 per unit. In August 2017, the Company determined that the amount raised through such sales was insufficient to meet its current needs, and accordingly solicited subscription agreements from third parties for 965,000 units at $1.00 per unit. Each unit sold in these placements consists of one restricted share of AMMA common stock and a warrant to acquire one share of common stock at an exercise price of $1.50 per share. The Company issued all 1,478,761 shares of common stock sold in these placements on August 29, 2017.

 

In October and November 2017, the Company solicited subscription agreements from third parties for 390,000 units at $1.25 per unit. Each unit sold in the placement consists of one restricted share of AMMA common stock and a warrant to acquire one half a share of common stock, 195,000 shares in total, at an exercise price of $1.75 per share.

 

The warrant issued with the October common stock placement included a price ratchet provision for cases where the Company sells common stock or settles liabilities with equity, in each case at a lower price than is reflected in the warrants. The Company completed a transaction which resulted in the warrant exercise price being adjusted to $1.10. Based upon ASU 2017-11, the decrease in the exercise price of the warrant has been fair valued at approximately $10,000 and accounted for as a non-cash dividend within the condensed consolidated balance sheet. There is no further reduction to the exercise price as this provision has expired.

 

Common Stock Grant

 

In February 2017, the Company entered a consulting arrangement with DC Consulting for management consulting services with a term of one year and included the grant of 150,000 shares subject to board of director approval. In July 2017, the Company issued the 150,000 restricted shares to DC Consulting under the arrangement and recognized stock-based compensation of approximately $148,000, the fair value of the shares on the date of issuance.

 

Option Grants  

 

In August 2016, the Company entered into an employment agreement with John Price as the Company’s President and Chief Financial Officer.

Note 9. Net Loss per Share

  

Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss for the period by the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding during each period. Diluted net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss for the period by the weighted average shares of common stock, common stock equivalents and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during each period. The Company uses the treasury stock method to determine whether there is a dilutive effect of outstanding option grants. 

 

The following table sets forth the computation of the Company’s basic and diluted net loss from continuing operations per share and net loss per share for the periods presented:

Note 10. Subsequent Events

 

On October 19, 2018, the company issued Red Diamond Partners 794,483 shares of common stock in consideration of (i) a “most favored nation” clause contained in a common stock subscription agreement and (ii) the termination of said agreement. The fair value of the stock issuance was $240,600, based upon the fair value of our common stock.

 

On November 6, 2018, the Company issued a $50,000 convertible note and warrants to purchase 41,667 shares to SCWorx for a purchase price of $50,000. The Note and warrants have an initial conversion/exercise price of $.30, subject to adjustment for the issuance of certain lower priced securities. In October, the Company received $30,000, the remaining payment related to the $750,000 convertible note.

 

As previously reported, the Company has not been in compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement of $1.00 per share, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), for continued listing on Nasdaq. On August 29, 2018, the Nasdaq officially notified the Company that it (i) did not meet the Nasdaq’s stockholder equity requirement of $2.5 million for continued listing, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1), (ii) continues to not meet the Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement of $1.00 per share, for continued listing, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), and (iii) did not meet the Nasdaq periodic reporting requirement set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) because the Company had not as of August 29, 2018, filed this Quarterly Report on Form 10Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The Company has since filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, curing the periodic reporting deficiency.

 

Also, as previously reported, on August 30, 2018, the Company requested a hearing to appeal the Nasdaq’s delisting determination On October 25, 2018, as part of the appeal process, the Company presented to the Nasdaq the Company’s plan for meeting the Nasdaq’s original listing qualifications, in connection with the closing of the business combination of SCWorx. In order for the Company’s common stock to qualify for listing on the Nasdaq Stock Market following completion of the acquisition, the Company will be required to meet the Nasdaq’s listing standards for original listing (including among others its minimum bid price of $4 per share and minimum $5 million of stockholders’ equity).

  

On November 9, 2018, The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notified the Company that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) granted the Company’s request for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, subject to the Company’s satisfaction of certain conditions, including interim funding milestones.

 

In accordance with the Nasdaq’s decision, subject to compliance with the interim funding milestones, which the Company has not met, the Company has until February 25, 2019 to complete its acquisition of SCWorx and demonstrate that the combined company satisfies the requirements for initial listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market.

 

Under the Panel’s decision, the Company was to have completed the interim funding milestone by November 15, 2018. Although the Company has made substantial progress towards meeting such milestone, the Company has not yet completed the required funding. Accordingly, the Company has requested that the Panel (i) reduce the amount of the required funding milestone and (ii) extend the time for completion of funding to November 30, 2018.

 

There is no assurance that the Nasdaq will agree to these Company requests. The Company believes that even at the reduced funding level, the combined company will still exceed the applicable Nasdaq stockholder equity requirement. If the Nasdaq does not agree to the Company’s requests, the Company will be delisted from the Nasdaq.

  

Even if the Panel grants the Company’s requests, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to satisfy the Panel’s revised conditions. If the Company is unable to fully comply with the terms of the Panel’s decision, including any revisions thereto, the company’s common stock could be delisted from The Nasdaq Capital Market which would have a material adverse effect on the company’s business and on the trading of its common stock. In addition, if the Company’s common stock is delisted from the Nasdaq Stock Market, there would be a failure of a closing condition to the SCWorx business combination, which, if not waived by SCWorx, would result in the termination of such transaction, which would have a material adverse effect on the Company.

 

On October 24, 2018, the Company issued 500,000 shares of common stock as collateral to secure the Company’s payment to a vendor by the due date of November 23, 2018, as extended. The stock based compensation expense associated with the award was approximately $136,500.

    

Effective October 24, 2018, the Company’s board of directors appointed Charles K. Miller a member of the Board and to serve on the Compensation and Audit Committees of the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors appointed Mr. Miller because of his strong corporate governance, business finance and technology expertise. The Board of Directors believes that Mr. Miller’s skills will be essential in connection with the anticipated completion of the Company’s acquisition of SCWorx. As compensation for serving in the foregoing capacities through December 31, 2018, the Board of Directors awarded Mr. Miller 62,500 shares of common stock which are fully vested. As of the date of this filing, the Company has not issued the shares. The stock based compensation expense associated with the award was approximately $17,500.

Our Business

  

Alliance MMA began its operations as a sports media company operating regional mixed martial arts (“MMA”) promotion business under the Alliance MMA name as well as under the trade names of the regional promoters we acquired. The fighters who participated in our MMA promotions were provided the opportunity to develop and showcase their talents for advancement to the next level of professional MMA competition. On May 25, 2018, the Board of Directors, along with management, committed the Company to an exit/disposal plan of the promotion business because it did not believe the business units were able generate sufficient operating cash flows to fund the ongoing operations. As of the date of this filing the Company has disposed of the following promotion and athlete management businesses:

 

·CFFC
·HFC
·COGA
·Shogun
·V3
·ITFS
·Fight Time
 ·NFC
 ·FCOC
· Victory
  · ASM
  · GFL
  · SuckerPunch

 

The Company is focused on operating its MMA ticketing platform, CageTix, along with completing the acquisition of SCWorx, pursuant to the SEA executed August 20, 2018.

Proposed SCWorx Acquisition

 

As described elsewhere in this Report, on August 20, 2018, the Company entered into a Stock Exchange Agreement (SEA) with SCWorx Corp., a software as services (“SAAS”) company servicing the healthcare industry, under which the Company agreed to purchase from the SCWorx shareholders all the issued and outstanding capital stock of SCWorx, in exchange for which the Company agreed to issue at the closing that number of shares of Company common stock equal to the quotient of $50,000,000 divided by the closing price of the Company’s common stock upon the completion of the acquisition (subject to a cap of $.67 per share). Consummation of the transactions contemplated by the SEA is subject to satisfaction of a variety of conditions, including approval by the Company and SCWorx’ shareholders and the combined company meeting the listing qualifications for initial inclusion on the Nasdaq Stock Market.

 

Consequently, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to consummate the transactions contemplated by the SEA. If the Company completes the planned acquisition, management may dispose of the ticketing businesses and focus on the SCWorx SAAS business, which is focused on streamlining the three core healthcare provider systems; Supply Chain, Financial and Clinical (EMR) enabling providers’ enterprise systems to work as one automated and seamless business management system.

 

SCWorx offers an advanced software solution for the management of health care providers’ foundational business applications, empowering its customers to significantly reduce costs, drive better clinical outcomes and enhance their revenue. SCWorx supports the interrelationship between the three core healthcare provider systems: Supply Chain, Financial and Clinical. This solution moves data from one application to another to drive supply cost reductions, optimize contracts, increase supply chain management (SCM) cost visibility and control rebates and contract administration fees.

 

Results of Operations - Alliance MMA – 3 months ended September 30, 2018

 

Revenues

 

Our revenue is derived from ticket services from CageTix.

 

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $28,000 from ticket services.

 

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2017 was $40,000 from ticket services.

 

The decrease in revenue is primarily related to our financial condition and limited working capital to support the businesses. Given our limited financial resources we expect revenue from the business to continue to decline.

Salary and wages decreased $30,000 as we began to reduce executive head count in February 2018 with major head count reduction in May 2018. Travel decreased $150,000 related to the cessation of the MMA business and disposal of SuckerPunch. Amortization decreased $19,000 as we wrote off all acquired intangible related to the cessation of the MMA business and disposal of SuckerPunch.

Stock based compensation increased $279,000 related to the annual board of directors’ option grants, employee option awards, legal settlement and issuance of shares and warrants to a note holder. Fees increased $51,000, and other expenses increased $40,000.

  

Professional and consulting expenses decreased approximately $24,000 to $194,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $218,000 in the same period of 2017. The decrease in these expenses was due primarily to a decreased of $59,000 in accounting fees, $10,000 decrease in consulting fees, and a $23,000 decrease in IR/PR fees, partially offset by a $69,000 increase in legal expense. We expect legal and accounting fees to increase as we pursue the completion of the planned SCWorx acquisition transaction described elsewhere in this Report.

  

Effective July 2018, we disposed of our Athlete Management business, SuckerPunch. In connection with the disposal of SuckerPunch we lost approximately $70,000 and incurred additional stock-based compensation of $10,000 related to the repricing of a warrant and $31,000 related to the issuance of common shares. We incurred $50,000 in severance related to the cessation of our professional MMA business and $55,000 of stock compensation expense related to the release of escrow shares to a former promoter. These costs were offset by $97,000 of gain related to settlements of various accounts payable balances.

 

Results of Operations - Alliance MMA – 9 months ended September 30, 2018

 

Revenues

 

Our revenue is derived from ticket services from CageTix.

 

Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $144,000 from ticket services.

 

Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $160,000 from ticket services.

 

The decrease in revenue is primarily related to our financial condition and limited working capital to support the businesses.

 

Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses increased approximately $372,000 to $1.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $1.5 million in the same period of 2017. Salary and wages decreased $95,000 as we began to reduce executive head count in February 2018 with major head count reduction in May 2018. Insurance increased $135,000 as the Company adjusted for additional coverage for 2018. Stock based compensation increased $330,000 as the Company issued equity awards in 2018 to our board of directors and employees, settled a dispute and issued shares and warrants to a noteholder. Fees increased $31,000 and other expenses increased $91,000. Travel decreased $110,000 and amortization decreased $16,000.

  

Professional and consulting expenses increased approximate $103,000 to $1.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $912,000 in the same period of 2017. The increase in these expenses was due primarily to an increase of $82,000 in legal fees, $54,000 increase in SEC related fees offset by a decrease of $14,000 in accounting and consulting and $19,000 decrease in IR/PR fees. We expect legal and accounting fees to increase as we pursue the completion of the planned SCWorx acquisition transaction.

 

As part of the cessation of its professional MMA promotion business in the second quarter 2018, the Company disposed of all long-lived fixed assets and realized a loss on disposal of approximately $223,000, the Company also impaired or wrote off intangible assets and goodwill and realized a loss on disposal of $6.9 million, wrote off receivables of $190,000 and other assets of $19,000, which is included as a component of net loss from discontinued operations, net of tax for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

During the second quarter 2018, the Company sold all the professional MMA promotion businesses, except for Victory, FT and NFC, to the former business owners and terminated/settled existing employment agreements. In relation to the promotion business disposals, the Company settled the $310,000 earn-out liability related to the Shogun acquisition with the issuance of 366,072 common stock options with a Black-Scholes value of $94,000, issued 30,000 common stock options to a promoter as severance, and incurred approximately $246,000 of additional liabilities related to severance payments to former employees. The Company realized a gain of approximately $160,000 related to the settlement of outstanding accounts payable and a gain of approximately $276,000 related to settlement with a promoter of customer prepayments and recorded a $15,000 receivable from the promoter related to the sale of the business. On July 30, 2018, the Company entered a settlement agreement, effective as of May 31, 2018, with a former employee, in relation to the termination of his employment. The Company agreed to pay the former employee $129,800 and issue a fully vested stock option grant dated July 30, 2018 for 75,000 common shares with a life of 5 years and exercise price of $0.20. In June 2018, the Company abandoned the Cherry Hill, New Jersey promotion office and recorded a $167,500 charge for the remaining contractual lease payments.

 

In July 2018, the Company entered a separation agreement with a former employee and agreed to pay $50,000 in exchange for terminating the employment agreement. On September 26, 2018, the Company entered an agreement to sell the Athlete Management business, SuckerPunch, to the former business owners, the agreement had an effective date of July 1, 2018. The parties agreed to terminate / settle the existing employment agreements. One of the former employees was paid severance until August 31, 2018 and issued the remaining 108,289 common shares held in escrow related to the SuckerPunch acquisition. The Company recognized a stock-based compensation charge of $31,000 related to the issuance of the 108,289 common shares. The other former employee was paid severance through September 15,2018 and had his warrant to purchase 93,583 common shares repriced from $3.74 to $0.3725. The Company recognized a stock-based compensation charge of $10,000 related to the repricing of the common stock warrant. The Company recognized a $70,000 loss in relation to the disposal of the SuckerPunch business. In conjunction with the settlement with the former owner of Fight Club OC, Roy Englebrecht, the shares held in escrow were released as part of the separation agreement. The Company recorded stock based compensation expense of $55,000, the fair value of the shares on the date the agreement was entered. In September 2018, the Company sold the Victory name and related business assets to a vendor in settlement of an outstanding payable balance of $33,064. In September 2018, the Company sold Fight Time to the former business owner and terminated the existing settlement arrangement resulting in a gain of $16,667. In October 2018, the Company resolved its outstanding litigation with Mazzeo Song LLP resulting in the Company agreeing to pay $35,000 in settlement of the outstanding payable balance. The Company realized a $47,000 gain on the settlement as all invoices had previously been accrued. On November 12, 2018 the Company entered into a separation agreement with the former promoter of Victory and agreed to issue the 121,699 shares held in escrow related to the Victory acquisition. The effective date of the agreement was September 30, 2018 and as a result the Company recognized $35,000 of stock-based compensation expense.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our operations have generated negative cash flows since inception, Consequently, our primary source of cash has been from the issuance of common stock in conjunction with our IPO completed in October 2016, sales of our common stock and warrants to purchase common stock issued in private placements in July, August and October 2017 and public offering in January 2018 as well as advances in April and May 2018 under promissory notes with two of our board members and a shareholder, and a convertible note financing provided by SCWorx. In spite of having completed these financing transactions, due to our operations generating significant negative cash flows, we currently have virtually no cash on hand. Consequently, in order for us to continue as a going concern, we need to raise additional capital almost immediately. In order to alleviate this capital deficiency, we are actively seeking additional financing in the form of additional debt and/or equity. We cannot assure you that we will be able to raise sufficient additional funds in a timely fashion, or at all, to enable us to continue as a going concern. Nor can we assure you that any funds we are able to raise will be on commercially reasonable terms.

 

In order for us to be able to continue as a going concern so that we can complete the SCWorx acquisition and execute our business plan successfully, in addition to short term capital needed to maintain our status as a going concern, we will need substantial additional financing in the near term. The Company currently has virtually no cash on hand, an accumulated deficit of $30.0 million, historical operating losses and, since inception, consistently negative operating cash flows, indicating a substantial doubt with respect to our ability to continue as a going concern. We intend to fund the operating deficits through debt and or equity financings until such time as we are able to complete the SCWorx acquisition and generate positive cash flows from operating activities. We cannot assure you we will be able to secure additional debt and or equity financing on commercially reasonable terms or at all or that we will be able to complete the SCWorx acquisition.

   

As of September 30, 2018, our cash balance was $4,787 which consists primarily of cash on deposit with banks. As of the filing of this report, we had virtually no cash on hand. During the third quarter of 2018, our principal uses of cash consisted of paying for operating expenses and outstanding payables. As noted above, we currently do not have sufficient capital resources to continue our operations, and thus we have an immediate and urgent need for additional capital.

 

The Company has entered into a number of negotiated settlements with vendors and former employees, which provide for payments upon the closing of the SCWorx Acquisition. The aggregate amount owed under these settlement agreements payable upon closing of the SCWorx transaction is approximately $418,000, which is a component of the $425,604 current liabilities - discontinued operations of the condensed consolidated balance sheet.

 

As disclosed above, in conjunction with the stock offering completed in January 2018, the Company issued warrants with a provision requiring the Company to pay the warrant holder the Black - Scholes value of the warrant upon a fundamental transaction. On August 20, 2018, the Company entered into a stock Exchange Agreement with SCWorx which upon closing will qualify as a fundamental transaction within meaning of the warrant agreement. For illustration purposes only, if the stock price at closing was $0.67, the Black - Scholes value world approximate $0.53 per share based upon todays volatility and risk-free interest rate. As of the date hereof, there were 1,141,500 warrants outstanding which are subject to this Black – Scholes payout provision.

We entered into two additional note agreements, with third parties for $90,000 and $200,000. Additionally, the Company sold an aggregate of $720,000 of convertible notes to SCWorx. These proceeds from these notes were offset by the $390,000 repayment of notes payable. Additionally, the Company received $306,000 from the exercise of warrants and stock options.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information under this item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our “disclosure controls and procedures” (“Disclosure Controls”), as defined by Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of September 30, 2018, the end of the period covered by this Form 10-Q, as required by Rules 13a-15(b) and 15d-15(b) of the Exchange Act. The Disclosure Controls evaluation was done under the supervision and with the participation of management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, based on the 2013 framework and criteria established by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives. Based upon this evaluation, our President/Chief Financial Officer concluded that, due to deficiencies in the design of internal controls and lack of segregation of duties, our Disclosure Controls were not effective as of September 30, 2018, such that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Exchange Act is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure.

 

Management Report on Internal Controls over Financial Reporting

 

Our management has identified material weaknesses in our internal controls related to deficiencies in the design of internal controls and segregation of duties. Management is planning to meet with the Audit Committee to discuss remediation efforts, which are expected to continue through 2018 until such time as management is able to conclude that its remediation efforts are operating and effective.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, our management, including our President/Chief Financial Officer, has concluded that the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Form 10-Q present fairly, in all material respects, our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

 

 28 

 

 

We may in the future identify other material weaknesses or significant deficiencies in connection with our internal control over financial reporting. Material weaknesses and significant deficiencies that may be identified in the future will need to be addressed as part of our quarterly and annual evaluations of our internal controls over financial reporting under Sections 302 and 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Any future disclosures of a material weakness, or errors as a result of a material weakness, could result in a negative reaction in the financial markets and a decrease in the price of our common stock.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting.

 

During the quarter ended September 30, 2018, there was no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II-OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

In conducting our business, we may become involved in legal proceedings. We will accrue a liability for such matters when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated. When only a range of possible loss can be established, the most probable amount in the range is accrued. If no amount within this range is a better estimate than any other amount within the range, the minimum amount in the range is accrued. The accrual for a litigation loss contingency might include, for example, estimates of potential damages, outside legal fees and other directly related costs expected to be incurred.

 

In April and May 2017, respectively, two purported securities class action complaints—Shapiro v. Alliance MMA, Inc., No. 1:17-cv-2583 (D.N.J.), and Shulman v. Alliance MMA, Inc., No. 1:17-cv-3282 (S.D.N.Y.)—were filed against the Company and certain of its officers in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey and the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, respectively. The complaints alleged that the defendants violated certain provisions of the federal securities laws, and purported to seek damages in an amount to be alleged on behalf of a class of shareholders who purchased the Company’s common stock pursuant or traceable to the Company’s initial public offering. In July 2017, the plaintiffs in the New York action voluntarily dismissed their claim and, on March 8, 2018, the parties reached a settlement to the New Jersey action in which the carrier for our directors and officers liability insurance policy has agreed to cover Alliance’s financial obligations, including legal fees, under the settlement arrangement, less a deductible of $250,000. The complaint was dismissed in October 2018.

 

In October 2017, a shareholder derivative claim based on the same facts that were alleged in the class action complaints was filed against the directors of the Company in the District Court for the District New Jersey; however, a complaint was not served on the defendants and, on February 2, 2018 the claim was dismissed by the District Court.

 

In June 2018, the landlord of our Cherry Hill, New Jersey office filed suit against the Company for non-payment of rent. Currently the Company is in negotiations to settle the remaining payments due under the lease of $167,475.

 

In June 2018, the Company’s former President, Robert Haydak, filed suit against the Company. The Company and Mr. Haydak resolved the suit effective July 2018 with the Company agreeing on a cash settlement of $50,000 and delivery of certain MMA promotion fixed assets and the Company has accrued the settlement as of September 30, 2018.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

We are a smaller reporting Company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information under this item.

 

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

  

On September 13, 2018, the Company issued 200,000 shares of common stock and warrants to purchase 50,000 shares to a note holder in consideration of his agreement to extend the note until December 31, 2018 and convert all interest related to the Note into shares of company common stock. The warrants have an exercise price of $.29 per share.

 

On October 19, 2018, the company issued 794,483 shares of common stock in consideration of (i) a “most favored nation” clause contained in a subscription agreement and (ii) the termination of said agreement.

 

The Company believes that the foregoing transactions were exempt from the registration requirements under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“the Act”), based on the following facts: there was no general solicitation, there was a limited number of purchasers, each of whom the Registrant believes was an “accredited investor” (within the meaning of Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended) and was sophisticated about business and financial matters, and all shares issued were subject to restriction on transfer, so as to take reasonable steps to assure that the purchaser was not an underwriter within the meaning of Section 2(11) under the Act.

  

Item 5. Other Information

  

Also, as previously reported, on August 30, 2018, the Company requested a hearing to appeal the Nasdaq’s delisting determination On October 25, 2018, as part of the appeal process, the Company presented to the Nasdaq the Company’s plan for meeting the Nasdaq’s original listing qualifications, in connection with the closing of the business combination of SCWorx. In order for the Company’s common stock to qualify for listing on the Nasdaq Stock Market following completion of the acquisition, the Company will be required to meet the Nasdaq’s listing standards for original listing (including among others its minimum bid price of $4 per share and minimum $5 million of stockholders’ equity).

  

On November 9, 2018, The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notified the Company that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) granted the Company’s request for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, subject to the Company’s satisfaction of certain conditions, including interim funding milestones.

 

In accordance with the Nasdaq’s decision, subject to compliance with the interim funding milestones, which the Company has not met, the Company has until February 25, 2019 to complete its acquisition of SCWorx and demonstrate that the combined company satisfies the requirements for initial listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market.

 

Under the Panel’s decision, the Company was to have completed the interim funding milestone by November 15, 2018. Although the Company has made substantial progress towards meeting such milestone, the Company has not yet completed the required funding. Accordingly, the Company has requested that the Panel (i) reduce the amount of the required funding milestone and (ii) extend the time for completion of funding to November 30, 2018.

 

There is no assurance that the Nasdaq will agree to these Company requests. The Company believes that even at the reduced funding level, the combined company will still exceed the applicable Nasdaq stockholder equity requirement. If the Nasdaq does not agree to the Company’s requests, the Company will be delisted from the Nasdaq.

  

Even if the Panel grants the Company’s requests, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to satisfy the Panel’s revised conditions. If the Company is unable to fully comply with the terms of the Panel’s decision, including any revisions thereto, the company’s common stock could be delisted from The Nasdaq Capital Market which would have a material adverse effect on the company’s business and on the trading of its common stock. In addition, if the Company’s common stock is delisted from the Nasdaq Stock Market, there would be a failure of a closing condition to the SCWorx business combination, which, if not waived by SCWorx, would result in the termination of such transaction, which would have a material adverse effect on the Company.
