NOTE ABOUT FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (the “Quarterly Report”) contains forward-looking statements. All statements contained in this Quarterly Report other than statements of historical fact, including statements regarding our future results of operations and financial position, our business strategy and plans, and our objectives for future operations, are forward-looking statements. The words “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. 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. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties, and assumptions, including those described in Part I, Item 1A. “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 (the “2020 Annual Report”) as filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and in any subsequent filings with the SEC. Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks emerge from time to time. Our management cannot predict all risks, nor can we assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements we may make. In light of these risks, uncertainties, and assumptions, the future events, and trends discussed in this Quarterly Report may not occur and actual results could differ materially and adversely from those anticipated or implied in the forward-looking statements.

 

We undertake no obligation to revise or publicly release the results of any revision to these forward-looking statements, except as required by law. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.

 

Unless expressly indicated or the context requires otherwise, the terms “Crypto”, the “Company”, “we”, “us” and “our” in this Quarterly Report refer to The Crypto Company, a Nevada corporation, and, where appropriate, its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Crypto Sub, Inc., a Nevada corporation; CoinTracking, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“CoinTracking”); and Malibu Blockchain, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“Malibu Blockchain”).

THE CRYPTO COMPANY

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2021 AND 2020

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF THE BUSINESS

 

The Crypto Company was incorporated in the State of Nevada on March 9, 2017 (“Inception”). The Company is engaged in the business of providing consulting services and education for distributed ledger technologies (“blockchain”), for the building of technological infrastructure and enterprise blockchain technology solutions. The Company currently generates revenues and incurs expenses solely through these consulting operations.

 

Unless expressly indicated or the context requires otherwise, the terms “Crypto,” the “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” in this quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2021 (“Quarterly Report”) refer to The Crypto Company and, where appropriate, its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Crypto Sub, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Crypto Sub”); CoinTracking, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“CoinTracking”); and Malibu Blockchain, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“Malibu Blockchain”).

 

During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company generated revenues and incurred expenses primarily through the business of providing consulting services and education for distributed ledger technologies (“blockchain”), for the building of technological infrastructure and enterprise blockchain technology solutions,

 

The Company’s accounting year-end is December 31.

 

COVID-19

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the Covid-19 outbreak to be a global pandemic. In addition to the devastating effects on human life, the pandemic is having a negative ripple effect on the global economy, leading to disruptions and volatility in the global financial markets. Most US states and many countries have issued policies intended to stop or slow the further spread of the disease.

 

Covid-19 and the U.S’s response to the pandemic are significantly affecting the economy. There are no comparable events that provide guidance as to the effect the Covid-19 pandemic may have, and, as a result, the ultimate effect of the pandemic is highly uncertain and subject to change. We do not yet know the full extent of the effects on the economy, the markets we serve, our business, or our operations.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Management’s Representation of Interim Financial Statements

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company without audit pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted as allowed by such rules and regulations, and management believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These consolidated financial statements include all of the adjustments, which in the opinion of management are necessary to a fair presentation of financial position and results of operations. All such adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements at December 31, 2020, and 2019.

 

The Company prepares its consolidated financial statements based upon the accrual method of accounting, recognizing income when earned and expenses when incurred.

 

8
 

 

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

 

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of these consolidated financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses and the related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. The Company’s significant estimates and assumptions include but are not limited to the valuation allowances of deferred taxes, and share-based compensation expenses. Actual results may differ from these estimates. In addition, any change in these estimates or their related assumptions could have an adverse effect on the Company’s operating results.

 

Management’s Representation of Interim Financial Statements

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company without audit pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The Company uses the same accounting policies in preparing quarterly and annual financial statements. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted as allowed by such rules and regulations, and management believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These condensed consolidated financial statements include all of the adjustments, which in the opinion of management are necessary to a fair presentation of financial position and results of operations. All such adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto at December 31, 2020, as presented in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 31, 2021 with the SEC.

 

Cash and cash equivalents

 

The Company defines its cash and cash equivalents to include only cash on hand and certain highly liquid investments with original maturities of ninety days or less. The Company maintains its cash and cash equivalents at financial institutions, the balances of which may, at times, exceed federally insured limits. Management believes that the risk of loss due to the concentration is minimal.

Investments in cryptocurrency

 

Investments were comprised of several cryptocurrencies the Company owned, of which a majority was Bitcoin, that were actively traded on exchanges. During 2018, the Company sold most of its investments and during 2019 wrote-off the remainder of all those investments because there was no method to obtain liquidity for those investments. During the quarter ended March 31, 2021, one of those investments that had previously been written off became valuable and the Company liquidated the extent of its holdings at that time for cash proceeds of $160,808. The Company recorded this recovery as other income in its financial statements. As previously disclosed, the Company has ceased operations of its former cryptocurrency investment segment, and the Company liquidates newly issued/accessible assets from old investments as promptly as practicable for the sole purpose of winding down the Company’s legacy cryptocurrency investment segment.

 

The Company records its investments as indefinite-lived intangible assets at cost less impairment and are reported as long-term assets in the consolidated balance sheets. An intangible asset with an indefinite useful life is not amortized but assessed for impairment annually, or more frequently, when events or changes in circumstances occur indicating that it is more likely than not that the indefinite-lived asset is impaired. Impairment exists when the carrying amount exceeds its fair value. In testing for impairment, the Company has the option to first perform a qualitative assessment to determine whether it is more likely than not that an impairment exists. If it is determined that it is not more likely than not that an impairment exists, a quantitative impairment test is not necessary. If the Company concludes otherwise, it is required to perform a quantitative impairment test. To the extent an impairment loss is recognized, the loss establishes the new cost basis of the asset. Subsequent reversal of impairment losses is not permitted. The primary exchanges and principal markets the Company utilized for its trading were Kraken, Bittrex, Poloniex, and Bitstamp.

 

As of March 31, 2021, the Company had written off the value of its investments in cryptocurrency.

 

Investments non-cryptocurrency

 

The Company has historically invested in simple agreement for future tokens (“SAFT”) and a simple agreement for future equity (“SAFE”) agreements. The SAFT agreements provide for the issuance of tokens in anticipation of a future token generation event, with the number of tokens predetermined based on the price established in each respective agreement. The SAFE investment included provisions that provide for either equity or tokens or both. As of March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020 the Company had written off its investments in non-cryptocurrency.

 

Business combination

 

The purchase price of an acquired company is allocated between tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed from the acquired business based on their estimated fair values with the residual of the purchase price recorded as goodwill. The results of operations of acquired businesses are included in our operating results from the dates of acquisition.

 

Income taxes

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for expected future consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. 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 provision for income taxes represents the tax payable for the period and the change during the period in deferred tax assets and liabilities.

 

When tax returns are filed, it is highly certain that some positions taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities, while others are subject to uncertainty about the merits of the position taken or the amount of the position that would be ultimately sustained. The benefit of a tax position is recognized in the financial statements in the period during which, based on all available evidence, management believes it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including the resolution of appeals or litigation processes, if any. Tax positions taken are not offset or aggregated with other positions. Tax positions that meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold are measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that is more than 50 percent likely of being realized upon settlement with the applicable taxing authority. The portion of the benefits associated with tax positions taken that exceed the amount measured as described above is reflected as a liability for unrecognized tax benefits along with any associated interest and penalties that would be payable to the taxing authorities upon examination.

 

As of March 31, 2021, we are subject to federal taxation in the U.S, as well as state taxes. The Company has not been audited by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.

 

Fair value measurements

 

The Company recognizes and discloses the fair value of its assets and liabilities using a hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to valuations based upon unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to valuations based upon unobservable inputs that are significant to the valuation (Level 3 measurements). Each level of input has different levels of subjectivity and the difficulty involved in determining fair value.

 

10
 

 

  Level 1 Inputs are unadjusted, quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets at the measurable date.
     
  Level 2 Inputs, other than quoted prices included in Level 1, which are observable for the asset or liability through corroboration with market data at the measurement date.
     
  Level 3 Unobservable inputs that reflect management’s best estimate of what participants would use in pricing the asset or liability at the measurement date.

 

The carrying amounts of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities, including cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair value because of the short maturity of these instruments.

 

Revenue recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue under ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”). The core principle of the new revenue standard is that a company should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The following five steps are applied to achieve that core principle:

 

  Step 1: Identify the contract with the customer
  Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract
  Step 3: Determine the transaction price
  Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract
  Step 5: Recognize revenue when the Company satisfies a performance obligation

 

In order to identify the performance obligations in a contract with a customer, a company must assess the promised goods or services in the contract and identify each promised good or service that is distinct. A performance obligation meets ASC 606’s definition of a “distinct” good or service (or bundle of goods or services) if both of the following criteria are met: The customer can benefit from the good or service either on its own or together with other resources that are readily available to the customer (i.e., the good or service is capable of being distinct), and the entity’s promise to transfer the good or service to the customer is separately identifiable from other promises in the contract (i.e., the promise to transfer the good or service is distinct within the context of the contract).

 

If a good or service is not distinct, the good or service is combined with other promised goods or services until a bundle of goods or services is identified that is distinct.

 

The transaction price is the amount of consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring promised goods or services to a customer. The consideration promised in a contract with a customer may include fixed amounts, variable amounts, or both. When determining the transaction price, an entity must consider the effects of all of the following:

 

Variable consideration is included in the transaction price only to the extent that it is probable that a significant reversal in the amount of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur when the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is subsequently resolved. The transaction price is allocated to each performance obligation on a relative standalone selling price basis. The transaction price allocated to each performance obligation is recognized when that performance obligation is satisfied, at a point in time or over time as appropriate.

 

The Company adopted ASC 606 as of January 1, 2018, using the modified retrospective transition method for contracts as of the date of initial application. There was no cumulative impact on the Company’s retained earnings.

 

During the quarter ended March 31, 2021, the Company’s main source of revenue was consulting and development services for one customer. The Company has determined that revenue should be recognized over time, as the service is provided. The Company considered the criteria in ASC 606 in reaching this determination, specifically:

 

  The customer receives and consumes the benefit provided by the Company’s performance as the Company performs.

 

11
 

 

  The Company’s performance enhances an asset controlled by the customer.
  The Company’s performance does not create an asset with alternative use, and the Company has an enforceable right to payment for performance completed to date.

 

The consulting arrangement meet more than one of the criteria above.

 

Share-based compensation

 

In accordance with ASC No. 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation, the Company measures the compensation costs of share-based compensation arrangements based on the grant date fair value of granted instruments and recognizes the costs in financial statements over the period during which employees are required to provide services. Share-based compensation arrangements include stock options.

 

On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASC No. 2018-07, Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which simplifies the accounting for share-based payments to nonemployees by aligning it with the accounting for share-based payments to employees, with certain exceptions. Previously, share-based payments to nonemployees was accounted for in accordance with ASC No. 505, Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees, which required compensation cost to be remeasured at fair value at each reporting period when the award vests. As a result, stock option-based payments to non-employees resulted in significant volatility in compensation expense in prior years.

 

The Company accounts for its share-based compensation using the Black-Scholes model to estimate the fair value of stock option awards. Using this model, fair value is calculated based on assumptions with respect to the (i) expected volatility of the Company’s common stock price, (ii) expected life of the award, which for options is the time over which employees and non-employees are expected to hold their options prior to exercise, and (iii) risk-free interest rate.

 

Net loss per common share

 

The Company reports earnings per share (“EPS”) with a dual presentation of basic EPS and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is computed as net income divided by the weighted average of common shares for the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur from common shares issued through stock options, or warrants. For the three month period ended March 31, 2021, and 2020, the Company had no potentially dilutive common stock equivalents. Therefore, the basic EPS and diluted EPS are the same.

 

NOTE 3 - RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect and that may impact its financial statements and does not believe that there are any other new pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

NOTE 4 – NOTE PAYABLE

 

On April 3, 2018, CoinTracking entered into a Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with CoinTracking GmbH, which provided for total borrowings of up to $3,000,000. During 2018, CoinTracking borrowed $1,500,000 in exchange for three promissory notes (the “CoinTracking Note”) in the amounts of $300,000, $700,000, and $500,000, respectively. On December 31, 2018, the CoinTracking Note was still outstanding. On January 2, 2019, the Company sold its equity ownership stake in CoinTracking GmbH, and $1,200,000 of the sales proceeds were applied toward repayment of the $1,500,000 outstanding loan amount under the CoinTracking Note. The remaining balance of $300,000 is outstanding as of March 31, 2021, with a due date of March 31, 2022 which due date was extended from the prior due date of March 31, 2021 pursuant to an amendment dated December 28, 2018. The Note bears interest at 3%, which is payable monthly, in arrears. All payments shall be applied first to all accrued and unpaid interest and second to the outstanding principal balance, as applicable.

 

Interest expense was $2,250 for the three month period ended March 31, 2021, and March 31, 2020, respectively.

 

  On May 8, 2020, the Company entered into a promissory note (the “Promissory Note”) with First Bank, a Missouri banking corporation, which provides for a loan of $53,492 (the “PPP Loan”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”). The PPP Loan has a two-year term and bears interest at a rate of 1.0% per annum. Monthly principal and interest payments are deferred for six months after the date of disbursement. The PPP Loan may be prepaid at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties. The Promissory Note contains events of default and other provisions customary for a loan of this type. The Company anticipates this loan will be forgiven.
     
  On June 10, 2020, the Company received a loan from the Small Business Administration of $12,100 (the 2020 “SBA Loan”). The 2020 SBA Loan bears interest at 3.75% per annum and is payable over 30 years with all payments of principal and interest deferred for the first 12 months.
     
  On February 2, 2021, the Registrant received a loan from the Small Business Administration of $18,265 (the “2021 SBA Loan”). The 2021 SBA Loan bears interest at 1% per annum and is payable over 5 years with all payments of principal and interest deferred for the first 10 months.

 

NOTE 5 – CONVERTIBLE NOTES

 

The balance of Convertible Notes was $125,000 as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

 

In June 2020, the Company issued Convertible Notes (“June 2020 Notes”) to an accredited investors for an aggregate amount of $5,000. The June 2020 Notes mature in June 2025, unless earlier converted. The June 2020 Notes bear interest at a rate of 5% per year. The June 2020 Notes will automatically convert into shares of common stock on the earlier to occur of a) a qualified equity financing, with the conversion price equal to 50% of the common stock price paid by the purchasers of the equity, or b) on the maturity date, at a price per share equal to the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on that date. If a change in control occurs before either of the automatic conversion events, the holders of the June 2020 Notes will have the option to convert the June 2020 Notes at a price per share equal to the fair market value of the common stock at the time of such conversion. The Company can prepay the principal and interest, in cash, at any time without any premium or penalty. The June 2020 Notes have no voting rights, do not participate in dividends, and are unsecured. The Company believes it is more likely than not that the June 2020 Notes will not be automatically converted in connection with a qualified equity financing prior to either prepayment or automatic conversion on maturity.

 

In April 2020, the Company issued three Convertible Notes (“April 2020 Notes”) to three accredited investors for an aggregate amount of $22,500.

ITEM 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

You should read the following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the related notes included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“Quarterly Report”) and with our audited consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto, and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 (the “2020 Annual Report”), as filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). In addition to historical consolidated financial information, the following discussion and analysis contain forward-looking statements that reflect our plans, estimates, and beliefs and involve risks and uncertainties. The words “may,” “could,” “should,” “estimate,” “project,” “forecast,” “intend,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “target,” “plan” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to these differences include those discussed below and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report, as well as risks referenced in our other filings with the SEC, including Part I, Item 1A. “Risk Factors” of the 2020 Annual Report.

 

Overview of Our Business

 

We are engaged in the business of providing consulting services and education for distributed ledger technologies (“blockchain”), for the building of technological infrastructure and enterprise blockchain technology solutions. We currently generate revenues and incur expenses through these consulting operations. We have disposed of our entire ownership interest in CoinTracking GmbH and also divested all of our cryptocurrency assets owned by our former cryptocurrency investment segment, which has ceased operations.

 

During the quarter ending March 31, 2021 the Company received digital tokens as a result of an investment the Company made in 2018. That investment was previously written off for accounting purposes because at that point, there was no expectation of realizable value. The Company believes that these tokens, as of the date of this report, are worth between $200,000 and $450,000. Due to the ongoing volatility and illiquidity in the marketplace, there can be no assurance the Company can realize cash proceeds from the sale of the tokens it holds. The Company is only selling the tokens that it received as a result of the aforementioned investment and is not making any new purchases of this token. The intention is not to speculate on these tokens, but to maximize the value for its shareholders. The Company believes it cannot immediately liquidate its position without adversely impacting the market value of its tokens.

 

Comparison of the three months ended March 31, 2021, and the three months March 31, 2020

 

Revenue

 

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, were $1400 and $2,500, respectively. Revenue consisted of fees received for blockchain training, consulting, and software development.

 

General and administrative expenses

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, our general and administrative expenses were $311,442, a decrease of $199,330 compared to $112,092 for the period ended March 31, 2020. General and administrative expenses consist primarily of costs relating to professional services, payroll, and payroll-related expenses, and depreciation and amortization expenses. Professional services included in general and administrative expenses consist primarily of contracting fees, consulting fees, and accounting fees.

 

Share-based compensation was $140,835 and $-0- for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, respectively.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The following table summarizes the primary sources and uses of cash for the periods presented below:

 

   Three months ended 
   March 31, 
   2021   2020 
         
Net cash used in operating activities  $(23,839)  $(18,383)
Net cash used in investing activities   -    - 
Net cash provided by financing activities   843,265    22.500 
Net increase in cash and cash equivalents  $819,752   $4,117 

 

Operating Activities

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $23,839 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, and $18,383 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in net cash used in operating activities was primarily due to an increase in our general and administrative expenses from $170,607 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $112,092 for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Investing Activities

Financing Activities

 

Net cash from financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021, was $843,265, compared to $22,500 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in net cash from financing activities was mainly due to proceeds for the sale of the Company’s common stock during the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

Trends, Events, and Uncertainties

 

The blockchain technology market is dynamic and unpredictable. Although we will undertake compliance efforts, including efforts with commercially reasonable diligence, there can be no assurance that there will not be a new or unforeseen law, regulation or risk factor which will materially impact our ability to continue our business as currently operated or raise additional capital to foster our continued growth.

 

We cannot assure you that our consulting business will develop as planned, that we will ever earn revenues sufficient to support our operations, or that we will ever be profitable. Furthermore, since we have no committed source of financing, we cannot assure you that we will be able to raise money as and when we need it to continue our operations. If we cannot raise funds as and when we need them, we may be required to severely curtail, or even to cease our operations.

 

Other than as discussed elsewhere in this Quarterly Report and our 2020 Annual Report, we are not aware of any trends, events, or uncertainties that are likely to have a material effect on our financial condition.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The preparation of our consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, and the related disclosure of contingent liabilities. We base our judgments on our historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making estimates about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We have no material changes to our Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates disclosure as filed in our 2020 Annual Report.

ITEM 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of March 31, 2021. Based upon that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of March 31, 2021, to provide reasonable assurance that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit 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 officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their desired control objectives, and our management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. During 2021 the Company hired qualified consultants familiar with public company reporting to supplement our management team.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the three months ended March 31, 2021, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
