NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018

(Unaudited)


NOTE A DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS

FlatWorld Acquisition Corp. (the Company or FlatWorld) is a blank check company formed on June 25, 2010 as a British Virgin Islands business company with limited liability for the purpose of acquiring, engaging in a share exchange, share reconstruction and amalgamation or contractual control arrangement with, purchasing all or substantially all of the assets of, or engaging in any other similar business transaction, one or more unidentified operating business or assets (Business Transaction). The Companys efforts in identifying a prospective target business for its Business Transaction will not be limited to a particular industry, geographic region or minimum transaction value, but will focus its search on identifying a prospective target business in either (i) the global business services sector or (ii) emerging Asian markets. On June 29, 2011, the Company changed its fiscal year solely for financial accounting purposes such that the Companys fiscal year will now end on December 31st of each calendar year. The Company had initially adopted a fiscal year end of June 30th solely for financial accounting purposes.  

On December 31, 2013, the Company entered into an agreement with FWC Management Services Ltd and FlatWorld Capital LLC, an entity controlled by three officers of the Company, to assign FWC Management Services Ltds interest in the Administrative Services Agreement to FlatWorld Capital LLC.  Under such agreement, FlatWorld Capital LLC will continue to provide the services previously performed by, and on the same terms of, FWC Management Services Ltd, and all previous fees outstanding will be payable to FlatWorld Capital LLC.

Going concern consideration 

The accompanying (a) condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2018, which has been derived from audited consolidated financial statements, and (b) the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles, which contemplate continuation of the Company as a going concern. As indicated in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, at March 31, 2019, the Company had no cash, current liabilities of $764,577 and a working capital deficit (current liabilities minus current assets) of $764,577. Further, the Company has incurred and expects to continue to incur costs. These factors, among others, indicate that the Company may be unable to continue operations as a going concern unless further financing is consummated.

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset carrying amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

The Board of Directors anticipates that the Company will need to raise capital to fund ongoing operations, including the compliance cost of continuing to remain a public reporting company, and to fund the acquisition of an operating business. The Company does not currently have any specific capital-raising plans. The Company may receive funds from some or all of our officers or directors, and it may seek to issue equity securities, including preferred securities for which it may determine the rights and designations, ordinary shares, warrants, equity rights, convertibles notes and any combination of the foregoing. Any such offering may take the form of a private placement, public offering, rights offering, other offering or any combination of the foregoing at fixed or variable market prices or discounts to prevailing market prices. The Company cannot assure you that they will be able to raise sufficient capital on favorable, or any, terms. The Company believes that the issuance of equity securities in such a financing will not be subject to shareholder approval if the Companys Ordinary Shares are not then listed on a national exchange. Accordingly, you may not be entitled to vote on any future financing by the Company. Moreover, shareholders have no preemptive or other rights to acquire any securities that the Company may issue in the future.

NOTE B SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations (S-X) of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and with the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.

In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The results from operations for the three months period ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the December 31, 2018 consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company's SEC Form 10-K filed on April 16, 2019.

All amounts referred to in the notes to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are in United States Dollars ($) unless stated otherwise.

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Net loss per share

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC 260, Earnings Per Share. Net loss per ordinary share is computed by dividing net loss applicable to ordinary shareholders by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding for the period. Common share equivalents are excluded from the diluted earnings (loss) per share computation if their effect is anti-dilutive. At March 31, 2019, the Company did not have any dilutive securities and other contracts that could, potentially, be exercised or converted into ordinary shares and then share in the earnings of the Company.

Cash

The Company considers cash to consist of cash on hand and temporary investments having an original maturity of 90 days or less that are readily convertible into cash.

Concentration of credit risk

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash accounts in financial institutions, which at times, may exceed the Federal depository insurance coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.

Reliance on Key Personnel

The Company is heavily dependent on the continued active participation of the current directors and executive officers. The loss of any of the senior management could significantly and negatively impact the business until adequate replacements can be identified and put in place.

Fair value of financial instruments

The fair value of the Companys assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under FASB ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures approximates the carrying amounts represented in the balance sheet.

In accordance with GAAP, fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e., the exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.

In accordance with GAAP, a fair value hierarchy for inputs is used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available.  Observable inputs are those that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company.  Unobservable inputs reflect the Company's assumptions about the inputs market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances.  The fair value hierarchy is categorized into three levels based on the inputs as follows:

Level 1 - Valuations based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access.  Valuation adjustments and block discounts are not applied to Level 1 securities.  Since valuations are based on quoted prices that are readily and regularly available in an active market, valuation of these securities does not entail a significant degree of judgment.



8



Level 2 - Valuations based on quoted prices in markets that are not active or for which all significant inputs are observable, either directly or indirectly.

Level 3 - Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement.

The availability of valuation techniques and observable inputs can vary from security to security and is affected by a wide variety of factors including, the type of security, whether the security is new and not yet established in the marketplace, and other characteristics particular to the transaction.  To the extent that valuation is based on models or inputs that are less observable or unobservable in the market, the determination of fair value requires more judgment.  Those estimated values do not necessarily represent the amounts that may be ultimately realized due to the occurrence of future circumstances that cannot be reasonably determined.  Because of the inherent uncertainty of valuation, those estimated values may be materially higher or lower than the values that would have been used had a ready market for the securities existed.  Accordingly, the degree of judgment exercised by the Company in determining fair value is greatest for securities categorized in Level 3.  In certain cases, the inputs used to measure fair value may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy.  In such cases, for disclosure purposes, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the fair value measurement in its entirety is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Fair value is a market-based measure considered from the perspective of a market participant rather than an entity-specific measure.  Therefore, even when market assumptions are not readily available, the Company's own assumptions are set to reflect those that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability at the measurement date.  The Company uses prices and inputs that are current as of the measurement date, including periods of market dislocation.

As of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the carrying amount reported in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet for accounts payable and accrued expenses and due to affiliates approximates fair value because of the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments.

Use of estimates

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

Income tax

The Government of British Virgin Islands will not, under existing legislation, impose any income, corporate or capital gains tax, estate duty, inheritance tax, gift tax or withholding tax upon the Company or its security holders. The British Virgin Islands is not party to any double taxation treaties.

Notwithstanding the above, the Company complies with FASB ASC 740, Income Taxes, which requires an asset and liability approach to financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are computed for differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities that will result in future taxable or deductible amounts, based on enacted tax laws and rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. The Company did not establish a valuation allowance as of March 31, 2019 as there were no deferred tax assets at that date.

The Company adopted the provisions of FASB ASC 740-10-25 which establishes recognition requirements for the accounting for income taxes. There were no unrecognized tax benefits as of March 31, 2019. The section prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. No amounts were accrued for the payment of interest and penalties at March 31, 2019. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position.  The Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception.

The Company does not believe that the adoption of any new recently issued accounting standards will have a material impact on its unaudited condensed consolidated financial position and results of operations.

NOTE C RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

NOTE D COMMITMENTS

Litigation

There is no litigation currently pending or, to our knowledge, contemplated against us, our sponsor or any of our officers or directors in their capacities as such. Although we are not aware of any pending or contemplated litigation, the Company may, from time to time, become subject to certain legal proceedings and claims, which may arise in the ordinary course of its business. Although occasional adverse decisions or settlements may occur, the Company believes that the final disposition of such matters should not have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or liquidity.

NOTE E WARRANTS AND OPTIONS

As of March 31, 2019 there were no warrants or options outstanding.

NOTE F CAPITAL STOCK

NOTE G - SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

The Company has evaluated subsequent events through the date the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements were available to be issued, and has concluded that no such events or transactions took place that would require disclosure herein.

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENTS DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the Companys Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and footnotes thereto contained in this report.

Overview

We are a blank check or shell company formed as a British Virgin Islands business company with limited liability for the purpose of acquiring, engaging in a share exchange, share reconstruction and amalgamation or contractual control arrangement with, purchasing all or substantially all of the assets of, or engaging in any other similar business transaction with one or more operating businesses or assets that we have yet to identify. While our efforts in identifying a prospective target business for our initial business transaction will not be limited to a particular industry, geographic region or minimum transaction value, we will focus our search on identifying a



10



prospective target business in either (i) the global business services sector or (ii) emerging Asian markets. We do not have any specific business transaction under consideration although we are actively searching for a target business.

As of March 31, 2019, we had $0 of cash on hand.  The issuance of additional ordinary shares in a business transaction:

·      may significantly dilute the equity interests of our shareholders;

·      may subordinate the rights of holders of ordinary shares if we issue preferred stock with rights senior to those afforded to our ordinary shares;

·      may cause a change in control if a substantial number of our ordinary shares are issued, which may affect, among other things, our ability to use our net operating loss carry forwards, if any, and most likely will also result in the resignation or removal of our present officers and directors; and

·      may adversely affect prevailing market prices for our ordinary shares.

Similarly, any issuance of debt securities could result in:

·      default and foreclosure on our assets if our operating cash flow after a business transaction is insufficient to pay our debt obligations;

·      acceleration of our obligations to repay the indebtedness even if we have made all principal and interest payments when due if the debt security contains covenants that require the maintenance of certain financial ratios or reserves and any such covenant is breached without a waiver or renegotiation of that covenant;

·      our immediate payment of all principal and accrued interest, if any, if the debt security is payable on demand; covenants that limit our ability to acquire capital assets or make additional acquisitions;

·      our inability to obtain additional financing, if necessary, if the debt security contains covenants restricting our ability to obtain additional financing while such security is outstanding;

·      our inability to pay dividends on our ordinary shares;

·      using a substantial portion of our cash flow to pay principal and interest on our debt, which will reduce the funds available for dividends on our ordinary shares if declared, expenses, capital expenditures, acquisitions and other general corporate purposes;

·      limitations on our flexibility in planning for and reacting to changes in our business and in the industry in which we operate;

·      increased vulnerability to adverse changes in general economic, industry and competitive conditions and adverse changes in government regulation; and

·      limitations on our ability to borrow additional amounts for expenses, capital expenditures, acquisitions, debt service requirements, execution of our strategy and other purposes and other disadvantages compared to our competitors who have less debt.

Results of Operations and Known Trends or Future Events

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our entire activity since inception to the closing of our initial public offering was limited to preparations for that event. Since the consummation of our initial public offering, our activity has been limited to evaluating business transaction candidates. We have not generated any operating revenues and will not until after completion of our initial business transaction, at the earliest. We will generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents. We expect to incur substantially increased expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence.

For the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, we had net loss of $24,475 consisting solely of expenses of $24,475.

For the prior three months ended March 31, 2018, we had a net loss of $24,475 consisting solely of expenses of $24,475.



11



Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2019, the Company had no cash available for use by management to cover the costs associated with identifying a target business and negotiating an acquisition or merger.

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, we used cash of $0 in operating activities which was attributable to an increase in money due to affiliate of $22,700 advanced to the Company to settle certain vendor bills on behalf of the Company, payables of $1,775, together with a net loss for the period of $24,475. There was no net change in cash for three months ending March 31, 2019. We started with a cash balance of $0 as of January 1, 2019. We ended the period at March 31, 2019 with a cash balance of $0.

We do not believe that the $0 in funds available to us as of March 31, 2019 will be sufficient to allow us to operate in the future.  In the future, we will need to raise additional funds for identifying and evaluating prospective acquisition candidates, performing business due diligence on prospective target businesses, traveling to and from the offices, plants, sites or similar locations of prospective target businesses, reviewing corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, selecting the target business to acquire and structuring, negotiating and consummating the business transaction.  In order to meet our working capital needs, certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds, from time to time, or at any time, in whatever amount such officer or director deems reasonable in his sole discretion. The unpaid principal amount of any such loans may be converted, at the option of the lender, into different securities of the Company.  The holders of a majority of any such securities that may be issued (or the underlying shares) will be entitled to demand that we register these securities pursuant to an agreement to be entered into at the time of the loan.  The holders of a majority of these securities would have certain piggy-back registration rights with respect to registration statements filed by us subsequent to such date.  We will bear the expense incurred with the filing of any such registration statements.  The terms of such loans by our officers and directors, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist.  

 We believe we will need to raise additional funds until the consummation of our initial business transaction to meet the expenditures required for operating our business. We may need to raise additional funds through a private offering of debt or equity securities if such funds are required to consummate a business transaction that is presented to us. We may consummate such financing at any time.

The Board of Directors anticipates that the Company will need to raise capital to fund ongoing operations, including the compliance cost of continuing to remain a public reporting company, and to fund the acquisition of an operating business. The Company does not currently have any specific capital-raising plans. We may receive funds from some or all of our officers or directors, and we may seek to issue equity securities, including preferred securities for which we may determine the rights and designations, ordinary shares, warrants, equity rights, convertibles notes and any combination of the foregoing. Any such offering may take the form of a private placement, public offering, rights offering, other offering or any combination of the foregoing at fixed or variable market prices or discounts to prevailing market prices. We cannot assure you that we will be able to raise sufficient capital on favorable, or any, terms. We believe that the issuance of equity securities in such a financing will not be subject to shareholder approval if the Companys Ordinary Shares are not then listed on a national exchange. Accordingly, you may not be entitled to vote on any future financing by the Company. Moreover, shareholders have no preemptive or other rights to acquire any securities that the Company may issue in the future.

Off-Balance Sheet Financing Arrangements

We have no obligations, assets or liabilities which would be considered off-balance sheet arrangements. We did not participate in transactions that create relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, often referred to as variable interest entities, which would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements.

We have not entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements, established any special purpose entities, guaranteed any debt or commitments of other entities, or entered into any non-financial assets.



Contractual Obligations

We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations or long-term liabilities, other than a monthly fee of $7,500 for office space and general and administrative services payable to FlatWorld Capital LLC, an entity controlled by three officers of the Company. We began incurring this fee on December 9, 2010, and will continue to incur this fee monthly until the date on which the Company ceases its corporate existence



12



in accordance with its Ninth Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association. The agreement was originally entered into with FWC Management Services Ltd, an entity controlled by two officers of the Company, however on December 31, 2013, we entered into an agreement with FWC Management Services Ltd and FlatWorld Capital LLC to assign FWC Management Services Ltds interest in the Administrative Services Agreement to FlatWorld Capital LLC.  Under such agreement, FlatWorld Capital LLC will continue to provide the services previously provided by FWC Management Services Ltd, and on the same terms under which such services were performed under the original agreement.  

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Financial Reporting Release No. 60, published by the SEC, recommends that all companies include a discussion of critical accounting policies used in the preparation of their financial statements. While all these significant accounting policies impact our unaudited condensed consolidated financial condition and results of operations, we view certain of these policies as critical. Policies determined to be critical are those policies that have the most significant impact on our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and require management to use a greater degree of judgment and estimates. Actual results may differ from those estimates.

We believe that given current facts and circumstances, it is unlikely that applying any other reasonable judgments or estimate methodologies would cause a material effect on our unaudited condensed consolidated results of operations, financial position or liquidity for the periods presented in this report.

Basis of presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

All amounts referred to in the notes to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are in United States Dollars ($) unless stated otherwise.

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Net loss per share

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC 260, Earnings Per Share. Net loss per ordinary share is computed by dividing net loss applicable to shareholders by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding for the period. At March 31, 2019, the Company did not have any dilutive securities and other contracts that could, potentially, be exercised or converted into ordinary share and then share in the earnings of the Company.

Concentration of credit risk

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash accounts in a financial institution, which at times, may exceed the Federal depository insurance coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.

Reliance on Key Personnel

The Company is heavily dependent on the continued active participation of the current directors and executive officers. The loss of any of the senior management could significantly and negatively impact the business until adequate replacements can be identified and put in place.

Fair value of financial instruments

The fair value of the Companys assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under FASB ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, approximates the carrying amounts represented in the balance sheet.

In accordance with GAAP, fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e., the exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.

In accordance with GAAP, a fair value hierarchy for inputs is used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available.  Observable inputs are those that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company.  Unobservable inputs reflect the Company's assumptions about the inputs market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed



13



based on the best information available in the circumstances.  The fair value hierarchy is categorized into three levels based on the inputs as follows:

Level 1 - Valuations based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access.  Valuation adjustments and block discounts are not applied to Level 1 securities.  Since valuations are based on quoted prices that are readily and regularly available in an active market, valuation of these securities does not entail a significant degree of judgment.

Level 2 - Valuations based on quoted prices in markets that are not active or for which all significant inputs are observable, either directly or indirectly.

Level 3 - Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement.

The availability of valuation techniques and observable inputs can vary from security to security and is affected by a wide variety of factors including, the type of security, whether the security is new and not yet established in the marketplace, and other characteristics particular to the transaction.  To the extent that valuation is based on models or inputs that are less observable or unobservable in the market, the determination of fair value requires more judgment.  Those estimated values do not necessarily represent the amounts that may be ultimately realized due to the occurrence of future circumstances that cannot be reasonably determined.  Because of the inherent uncertainty of valuation, those estimated values may be materially higher or lower than the values that would have been used had a ready market for the securities existed.  Accordingly, the degree of judgment exercised by the Company in determining fair value is greatest for securities categorized in Level 3.  In certain cases, the inputs used to measure fair value may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy.  In such cases, for disclosure purposes, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the fair value measurement in its entirety falls is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

  Fair value is a market-based measure considered from the perspective of a market participant rather than an entity-specific measure.  Therefore, even when market assumptions are not readily available, the Company's own assumptions are set to reflect those that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability at the measurement date.  The Company uses prices and inputs that are current as of the measurement date, including periods of market dislocation.

Use of estimates

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

Income tax

The Company complies with FASB ASC 740, Income Taxes, which requires an asset and liability approach to financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are computed for differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities that will result in future taxable or deductible amounts, based on enacted tax laws and rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. The Company did not establish a valuation allowance as of March 31, 2019 as there were no deferred tax assets at that date.

The Company adopted the provisions of FASB ASC 740-10-25 which establishes recognition requirements for the accounting for income taxes. There were no unrecognized tax benefits as of March 31, 2019. The section prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. No amounts were accrued for the payment of interest and penalties at March 31, 2019. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position.  The Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception. The adoption of the



14



provisions of FASB ASC 740-10-25 did not have a material impact on the Companys financial position and results of operation and cash flows as of and for the period ended March 31, 2019.

Recently issued accounting pronouncements

The Company does not believe that the adoption of any new recently issued accounting standards will have a material impact on its unaudited condensed consolidated financial position and results of operations.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISKS

For quantitative and qualitative disclosures about market risk, see Item 7A, Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk, of our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. Our exposures to market risk have not changed materially since December 31, 2018.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Disclosure controls and procedures

The Company has adopted and maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the reports filed under the Exchange Act, such as this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, is collected, recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Companys disclosure controls and procedures are also designed to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. As required under Exchange Act Rule 13a-15, the Companys management, including the Principal Executive Officer and the Principal Financial Officer, has conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon that evaluation, the Companys CEO and CFO concluded that due to a lack of segregation of duties the Companys disclosure controls and procedures are not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SECs rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Companys management, including the Companys CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Subject to receipt of additional financing or revenue generated from operations, the Company intends to retain additional individuals to remedy the ineffective controls.



15



Change in internal control over financial reporting

During the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the Company has made no changes to its internal controls over financial reporting that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.


PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

There is no litigation currently pending or, to our knowledge, contemplated against us, our sponsor or any of our officers or directors in their capacities as such.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS.

Factors that could cause the Companys actual results to differ materially from those in this Report are any of the risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, which is incorporated herein by reference. Any of these factors could result in a significant or material adverse effect on the Companys results of operations or financial condition. Additional risk factors not presently known to the Company or that the Company currently deems immaterial may also impair its business or results of operations.

As of the date of this Report, there have been no material changes to the risk factors disclosed in the Companys Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, except the Company may disclose changes to such factors or disclose additional factors from time to time in its future filings with the SEC.
