PART I

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements contained in this registration statement constitute "forward-looking statements.” These statements, identified by words such as “plan,” "anticipate,” "believe,” "estimate,” "should,” "expect" and similar expressions include the Company’s expectations and objectives regarding its future financial position, operating results and business strategy. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that may cause its actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, general economic conditions particularly related to demand for the Company’s products and services, changes in business strategy, competitive factors (including the introduction or enhancement of competitive services), pricing pressures, changes in operating expenses, fluctuation in foreign currency exchange rates, inability to attract or retain consulting, sales and/or development talent, changes in customer requirements, and/or evolving industry standards, as well as those factors discussed in “Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors” of this annual report on Form 10-K.

Forward looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions, including the availability and final receipt of required government licenses, that sufficient working capital is available to complete the proposed activities, that contracted parties provide goods and/or services on the agreed time frames. While the Company considers these assumptions may be reasonable based on information currently available to it, they may prove to be incorrect. Actual results may vary from such forward-looking information for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to risks and uncertainties disclosed in “Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors” of this annual report on Form 10-K.

The Company intends to discuss in their Quarterly Reports and Annual Reports any events or circumstances that occurred during the period to which such documents relate that are reasonably likely to cause actual events or circumstances to differ materially from those disclosed in this registration statement. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all of such factors and to assess in advance the impact of each such factor on its business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of such factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forwarding looking statement.

As used in this registration statement, unless the context otherwise requires, “we,” “us,” “our,” the “Company” and “Live Current” refers to Live Current Media, Inc. All dollar amounts in this registration statement are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise stated.

ITEM 1.             BUSINESS

General

Live Current Media, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on October 10, 1995. The Company has an authorized capital of 500,000,000 shares of common stock with 34,837,625 shares currently issued and outstanding.

The Company operates its business through its wholly owned subsidiary, Domain Holdings Inc., originally formed under the laws of British Columbia, Canada on July 4, 1994 and re-domiciled to Alberta, Canada on April 14, 1999 (“DHI”). The Company is also the majority shareholder of Perfume, Inc. (95% ownership), formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on March 13, 2008. Perfume, Inc. is currently dormant and does not carry on an active business. References herein to the Company include DHI and Perfume, Inc. (collectively, the “Subsidiaries”) unless otherwise stated.

On March 21, 2019, the Company executed a distribution agreement (the “Distribution Agreement”) with Cell MedX Corp. (“Cell MedX” or the “Device Manufacturer”), pursuant to which Cell MedX granted to the Company exclusive worldwide rights to distribute the eBalance microcurrent device to households and individual users. Although the Company does not currently intend to abandon its domain name and website development business, the Company expects to devote the majority of its near-term business efforts to selling and distributing the eBalance device.

On June 4, 2014, pursuant to an arbitration award issued as part of certain legal proceedings among the Company, former executives and directors of the Company and certain shareholders of the Company (including David M. Jeffs, the Company’s current Chief Executive Officer), the District Court for Washoe County, Nevada ordered a receiver to be appointed and to take charge of the Company’s assets. The Company operated throughout 2015 and 2016 under receivership. On January 11, 2017, the District Court in Washoe County entered an order terminating the receiver’s possession of assets of the Company resulting in operations of the Company being returned to the directors of the Company. On May 4, 2017, the District Court in Washoe County discharged the Company from receivership.

Domain Name and Website Development Business

The Company’s sole business currently is that of managing the business of DHI. DHI is in the business of utilizing its exclusive ownership of domain names to develop internet-related business ventures.

Online Business Development. The Company, through DHI, holds title to a portfolio of approximately one hundred (100) intuitive, generic domains, such as Rodeo.com, Electronic.com, Boxing.com and Number.com, which inherently attract a stream of online visitors. The Company is not actively seeking to acquire additional domain names at this time. However, the Company will evaluate future opportunities to acquire additional domain names as they present themselves. The Company seeks opportunities to use its domain name rights to develop online businesses, by itself and through alliances with other entities. The Company believes that its operating businesses can share common platforms and infrastructure helping to create a scalable, adaptable and efficient growth model, while also capitalizing on the generic domain names’ ability to intuitively attract customers. The Company also believes it may be able to create economies of scale with each new business it develops. The Company’s business model for these operating businesses includes multiple revenue streams via revenue-sharing, leasing, web-advertising and trading of domain names. The Company has not, to date, capitalized on this plan in any significant manner.

Joint Ventures and Participations. The Company believes that its inventory of generic domain names may be attractive to established non-Internet businesses that are leaders or near-leaders in their respective industries. The Company’s business plan focuses on offering a long-term, strategic partnership in exchange for commitments that could include cash, marketing exposure, access to limited products, and business development activities. Similarly, the Company seeks to identify end-consumers who purchase the products and services that complement the businesses utilizing the Company’s inventory of domain names. Since 2000, the Company has implemented its business plan by entering into arrangements pursuant to which the Company has leased or licensed rights to utilize generic domain names owned by the Company to existing entities in return for cash payments and, in some cases, an equity participation in the entity or a joint venture established to exploit the name. Currently, the Company has two websites, Boxing.com and Number.com, that operate under a verbal joint venture arrangement with a third-party web developer (the “Web Developer”). Under this arrangement, the Company owns the domain names and the Web Developer develops and operates the websites at the Web Developers own cost and expense. The terms of the arrangement call for the Company and the Web Developer to split gross advertising revenues from the websites and the proceeds of any sale of the websites. However, advertising revenues for Boxing.com and Number.com have been minimal. As such, the Company has permitted the Web Developer to retain advertising revenues to offset against the costs of operating those websites. A description of the terms of the Company’s verbal arrangement with the Web Developer is attached as Exhibit 10-1 to this registration statement. Boxing.com is a news and media site offering users the opportunity to read daily news and statistics relating to the boxing and fight industry and is focused on becoming the most used site for boxing enthusiasts online. Number.com is a US directory of businesses.

Page 5 of 26


The Company expects to continue to seek additional opportunities utilizing its domain names; however, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to locate such opportunities, or if located, it will be able to enter into arrangements with such entities.

Sale and Lease of Domain Names. The Company recognizes opportunities which arise to monetize its ownership of domain names by selling or leasing the domain names, which may be more valuable than the exploitation of the ownership value of the names. The Company has previously sought opportunities to sell all or a portion of the domain names it holds in one or a series of transactions. Through these efforts, the Company has determined that by selling the domain names individually rather than as a portfolio the Company will maximize the revenue potential of these assets. The Company continues to market its individual and portfolio of domain names using third party brokers. The Company will continue to evaluate any offers received. During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the Company’s only source of income was from the sale of domain names.

The Company is also actively seeking opportunities to lease its domain names to companies who want to benefit from the availability of advertising and internet traffic that is generated by generic domain names.

Advertising Revenues. Historically, the Company generated revenue from advertising. However, advertising revenue has declined significantly over the years due to changes in the advertising model. The Company will continue to seek advertising revenue opportunities but does not expect that advertising will ever again represent a significant revenue source for the Company.

Distribution of Cell MedX eBalance Devices

On March 21, 2019, the Company executed the Distribution Agreement with Cell MedX, pursuant to which Cell MedX has granted to the Company an exclusive worldwide license to distribute its eBalance microcurrent device to households and individual users. To acquire these rights, the Company paid to Cell MedX the sum of $250,000, the full amount of which was paid to Cell MedX upon signing of the letter of intent between the Company and Cell MedX in September 2018. Under the terms of the Distribution Agreement, the Company has agreed to pay to Cell MedX a fee (the “License Fee”) for each eBalance device sold. In addition, the users of the eBalance device will be charged a periodic user fee (the “User Fee”) that will be split between the Company and Cell MedX. To maintain its exclusive distribution rights, the Company is subject to minimum sales and, after a period of time, minimum User Fee, requirements. If the Company fails to meet the minimum sales requirements, the Company will maintain its distribution rights, however those rights will cease to be exclusive.

eBalance Technology

The eBalance microcurrent device is based on the Device Manufacturer’s proprietary technology (the “eBalance Technology”) founded on the science of bioelectric signals, their affect on epigenetic events within the human body, and ability to modify and affect the behavior of cells, tissue, and organs. Based on this technology the Device Manufacturer is developing a radically different and very promising family of devices whose core technology demarcates it from the approaches currently in use and those in the “future advances” pipeline as reflected in current medical literature.

Microcurrent delivery devices used for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy and poor wound healing in diabetics have been in the marketplace for decades. However, the eBalance Technology can be distinguished from those devices, which have a limited utility and are not designed to treat diabetes at its. Not a “me too” device, nor an incremental improvement in an established realm, devices based on the eBalance Technology could, if proven through diligent research and development, open a new category of diabetes care.

The eBalance Technology is intended to expand the traditional healthcare model of managing diabetes, high blood pressure, Parkinson’s as well as some other pathological diseases, by enabling patients to manage their symptoms using a biosignal generating device that is simple to use, causes no discomfort, and can easily be incorporated into any lifestyle.

It is expected that the eBalance Technology will form the basis for a product line that will be available to aid in the management of diabetes mellitus (both Type 1 and Type 2), its complications, high blood pressure and some other pathologies, both as a professional clinic-based device and as a home use device.

Page 6 of 26


A research and development plan adopted by the Device Manufacturer includes a series of investigations that are intended to move the product from a prototype stage through a series of refinements and enhancements to achieve the safety and efficacy objectives of the device(s) upon which a set of claims intended for FDA, Health Canada and European Medical CE approval through the rigorous Pre-Market Approval (PMA) process is being constructed. A clinical observational trial finalized during 2017 (the “Clinical Study”), and future planned clinical trials will dictate the final marketing claims for the eBalance products, and will become the foundation for sales & marketing efforts in subsequent phases. The results of the Clinical Study and in-house observations of the effects of the eBalance technology on the human body, suggested that claims should not only focus on overall diabetes management, reductions in average blood sugar (HbA1C) as well as other markers that denote the degree and quality of blood sugar control, but can also encompass pain management, blood pressure control, and alleviation of symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease.

Given the size of the market for diabetes control and management, the current eBalance Technology has significant potential for success based solely on treating complications caused by diabetes. However, in order to capture a larger market share, the Device Manufacturer is looking into developing more specialized treatment options to target other ailments such as gout, hypertension, heart disease, neurological disorders, and depression.

Marketing of the eBalance

The Company’s marketing efforts for the eBalance will initially target the 10 million Americans aged 65 and older who have diabetes directly through a combination of advertising on internet platforms such as Facebook, active participation in social media, a dedicated YouTube channel, attendance at major health and wellness expositions and direct marketing to doctors, corporations and assisted living communities.

ITEM1A.           RISK FACTORS

An investment in the Company’s common shares involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the risks described below and the other information in this registration statement before investing in its common shares. If any of the following risks occur, the Company’s business, operating results and financial condition could be seriously harmed. The trading price of its common shares could decline due to any of these risks, and you may lose all or part of your investment.

You should consider each of the following risk factors and the other information in this registration statement, including the Company’s financial statements and the related notes, in evaluating its business and prospects. The risks and uncertainties described below are not the only ones that impact on the Company’s business. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to the Company or that the Company currently consider immaterial may also impair its business operations. If any of the following risks do occur, its business and financial results could be harmed. In that case, the trading price of its common stock could decline.

Risks Associated with the Company’s Domain Name and Website Development Business

Effect of Existing Governmental Regulation. The Company’s services are subject to significant regulation at the federal, state and local levels. Delays in receiving required regulatory approvals or the enactment of new adverse regulation or regulatory requirements may have a negative impact upon the Company and its business.

Licensing. Currently, other than business and operations licenses applicable to most commercial ventures, the Company is not required to obtain any governmental approval for its business operations, although the Company applies to ICANN and its contractors to obtain and maintain its domain name assets. There can be no assurance, however, that governmental institutions will not, in the future, impose licensing or other requirements on the Company. Additionally, as noted below, there are a variety of laws and regulations that may, directly or indirectly, have an impact on the Company’s business.

Privacy Legislation and Regulations. While the Company is not currently subject to licensing requirements, entities engaged in operations over the Internet, particularly relating to the collection of user information, are subject to limitations on their ability to utilize such information under federal and state legislation and regulation. In 2000, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act required that the collection of identifiable information regarding users of financial services be subject to stringent disclosure and “opt-out” provisions. While this law and the regulations enacted by the Federal Trade Commission and others relates primarily to information relating to financial transactions and financial institutions, the broad definitions of those terms may make the businesses entered into by the Company and its strategic partners subject to the provisions of the Act. This, in turn, may increase the cost of doing business and make it unattractive to collect and transfer information regarding users of services. This, in turn, may reduce the revenues of the Company and its strategic partners, thus reducing potential revenues and profitability. Similarly, the Children On-line Privacy and Protection Act (“COPPA”) imposes strict limitations on the ability of Internet ventures to collect information from minors. The impact of COPPA may be to increase the cost of doing business on the Internet and reducing potential revenue sources. The Company may also be impacted by the US Patriot Act, which requires certain companies to collect and provide information to United States governmental authorities. A number of state governments have also proposed or enacted privacy legislation that reflects or, in some cases, extends the limitations imposed by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and COPPA. These laws may further impact the cost of doing business on the Internet and the attractiveness of Live Current’s inventory of domain names.

Page 7 of 26


Advertising Regulations. In response to concerns regarding “spam” (unsolicited electronic messages), “pop-up” web pages and other Internet advertising, the federal government and a number of states have adopted or proposed laws and regulations which would limit the use of unsolicited Internet advertisements. While a number of factors may prevent the effectiveness of such laws and regulations, the cumulative effect may be to limit the attractiveness of effecting sales on the Internet, thus reducing the value of the Company’s inventory of domain names.

There are currently few laws or regulations that specifically regulate communications or commerce on the Internet. However, laws and regulations may be adopted in the future that address issues such as user privacy, pricing and the characteristics and quality of products and services. For example, the Telecommunications Act of 1996 sought to prohibit transmitting various types of information and content over the Internet. Several telecommunications companies have petitioned the Federal Communications Commission to regulate Internet service providers and on-line service providers in a manner similar to long distance telephone carriers and to impose access fees on those companies. This could increase the cost of transmitting data over the Internet. Moreover, it may take years to determine the extent to which existing laws relating to issues such as intellectual property ownership, libel and personal privacy are applicable to the Internet. Any new laws or regulations relating to the Internet or any new interpretations of existing laws could have a negative impact on Live Current’s business and add additional costs to doing business on the Internet.

Effect of new root domain names. The Company’s business is subject to a number of risks. In addition to competitive risks, the Company is engaged in businesses that are not currently profitable, and there can be no assurance that the Company’s business strategy will ever lead to profits. Moreover, the Company relies upon an inventory of generic domain names for lease, sale, and other ventures, which are made up mostly of “.com” suffixes. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (“ICANN”) has introduced the introduction of additional new domain name suffixes, which may be as or more attractive than the “.com” domain name suffix. New root domain names may have the effect of allowing the entrance of new competitors at limited cost, which may further reduce the value of the Company’s domain name assets. The Company does not presently intend to acquire domain names using newly authorized root domain names to match its existing domain names, although the Company has certain .cn (China) root domain names to complement its growth strategy.

Competition. The Company competes with many companies possessing greater financial resources and technical facilities than itself in the B2B2C (business-to-business-to-consumer) market as well as for the recruitment and retention of qualified personnel. In addition, while the Company holds title to a wide variety of generic names that may prove valuable, many of the Company’s competitors have a very diverse portfolio of names and have not confined their market to one industry, product or service, but offer a wide array of multi-layered businesses consisting of many different customer and industry partners. Some of these competitors have been in business for longer than the Company and may have established more strategic partnerships and relationships than the Company. In addition, as noted above, ICANN regularly develops new domain name suffixes that will have the result of making a number of domain names available in different formats, many of which may be more attractive than the formats held by the Company.

New Products and Services. The Company seeks to develop a portfolio of operating businesses either by itself or by entering into arrangements with businesses that operate in the product or service categories that are described by the domain name assets owned by DHI. The Company has not, however, identified specific business opportunities other than Boxing.com and Number.com at this point and there can be no assurance that it will do so.

Dependence on One or a Few Major Customers. The Company does not currently depend on any single customer for a significant proportion of its business. However, as the Company enters into strategic transactions, the Company may choose to grant exclusive rights to a small number of parties or otherwise limit its activities that could, in turn, create such dependence. The Company, however, has no current plans to do so.

Page 8 of 26


Patents, Trademarks and Proprietary Rights. On November 16, 2007, The Company filed a trademark application with the US Patent & Trademark Office (“USPTO”) for the mark "LIVE CURRENT". A certificate of registration was issued on October 14, 2008 and the mark was assigned registration number 3,517,876.

The Company will consider seeking further trademark protection for its online businesses and the associated domain names, however, the Company may be unable to avail itself of trademark protection under United States laws because, among other things, the names are generic and intuitive. Consequently, the Company will seek trademark protection only where it has determined that the cost of obtaining protection, and the scope of protection provided, results in a meaningful benefit to the Company.

Risks Related to the Company’s eBalance Distribution Business

Competitive Marketplace for Medical and Wellness Devices. The eBalance device operates in a highly competitive market. eBalance devices will face competition from devices manufactured and marketed by large, well established medical and wellness device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies in the market for treating and managing diabetes and related ailments. Many of these companies and their devices are very well accepted by health practitioners and have significant resources, and the Company may not be able to compete effectively.

The market for treatment and management of diabetes and related ailments is intensely competitive, subject to rapid change and significantly affected by new product introductions. The eBalance device competes indirectly with large pharmaceutical and medical device companies, such as Bayer Corp., Becton Dickinson Corp., LifeScan Inc., a division of Johnson & Johnson, the MediSense Inc. and TheraSense Inc. These competitors’ products are based on traditional healthcare model and are well accepted by health practitioners and patients. If these companies decide to penetrate the target market for the eBalance device, they could threaten threaten the Company’s ability to market and distribute the eBalance device.

Developing Technology with Numerous Governmental Regulations. The eBalance device will be subject to rigorous regulation by the FDA, Health Canada and numerous international, supranational, federal, and state authorities. The process of obtaining regulatory approvals to market a medical device can be costly and time-consuming, and approvals might not be granted for future products, or additional indications or uses of existing products, on a timely basis, if at all. Delays in the receipt of, or failure to obtain approvals for, the eBalance products, or new indications and uses, could result in delayed realization of product revenues, reduction in revenues, and in substantial additional costs. In addition, no assurance can be given that the eBalance device will remain in compliance with applicable FDA, Health Canada and other regulatory requirements once approval or marketing authorization has been obtained. These requirements include, among other things, regulations regarding manufacturing practices, product labeling, and advertising and postmarketing reporting, including adverse event reports and field alerts due to manufacturing quality concerns.

Changes in the health care regulatory environment may adversely affect our business. A number of the provisions of the U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 and its amendments changed access to health care products and services and established new fees for the medical device industry. Future rulemaking could increase rebates, reduce prices or the rate of price increases for health care products and services, or require additional reporting and disclosure. The Company cannot predict the timing or impact of any future rulemaking.

Inability of Cell MedX to protect and enforce intellectual property rights. As a distributor of the eBalance device, the Company is reliant on the intellectual property rights of Cell MedX to its technology. If Cell MedX is unable to defend, protect and enforce its intellectual property rights, the Company’s ability to distribute eBalance devices could adversely be affected. In addition, an adverse outcome in any litigation or interference proceeding could subject the Company to significant liabilities to third parties and require the Company to cease distributing eBalance devices. In addition, a finding that any of Cell MedX’s intellectual property rights are invalid could allow competitors to more easily and cost-effectively develop and manufacture competing devices. Thus, an unfavorable outcome in any patent litigation or interference proceeding could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s future business prospects, financial condition or results of operations.

eBalance Device is Unproven. The eBalance device is a new product to the health, wellness and medical device space, and a commercial market has not yet developed. The Company’s future success will depend on its ability to work with Cell MedX to develop a market for the eBalance device and to gain commercial acceptance of the eBalance device and the eBalance Technology.

Lack of Operating History in Marketplace. The Company does not have any operating history or experience in the distribution of medical or wellness devices. A lack of experience in this marketplace could make it more difficult for the Company to compete. In addition, the Company’s lack of experience in this space makes it difficult to assess or estimate its future potential. Success has yet to be proven and financial losses should be expected to continue in the near future.

Risks Related to the Company’s Securities

The Company’s stock price is volatile. The stock markets in general, and the stock prices of internet companies in particular, have experienced extreme volatility that often has been unrelated to the operating performance of any specific public company. The market price of the Company’s Common Stock is likely to fluctuate in the future, especially if the Company’s Common Stock is thinly traded. Factors that may have a significant impact on the market price of the Company’s Common Stock include:

  (a)

actual or anticipated variations in the Company’s results of operations;

  (b)

the Company’s ability or inability to generate new revenues;

  (c)

increased competition;

  (d)

government regulations, including internet regulations;

  (e)

conditions and trends in the internet industry;

  (f)

proprietary rights; or

  (g)

rumors or allegations regarding the Company’s financial disclosures or practices.

The Company’s stock price may be impacted by factors that are unrelated or disproportionate to its operating performance. These market fluctuations, as well as general economic, political and market conditions, such as recessions, interest rates or international currency fluctuations may adversely affect the market price of the Company’s Common Stock.

The Company does not expect to pay dividends in the foreseeable future. The Company has never paid cash dividends on its Common Stock and has no plans to do so in the foreseeable future. The Company intends to retain earnings, if any, to develop and expand its business.

Penny Stock” rules may make buying or selling the Company’s Common Stock difficult, and severely limit its market and liquidity. Trading in The Company’s Common Stock is subject to certain regulations adopted by the SEC commonly known as the “penny stock” rules. The Company’s Common Stock qualifies as penny stocks and are covered by Section 15(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which imposes additional sales practice requirements on broker/dealers who sell the Common Stock in the aftermarket. The “penny stock” rules govern how broker-dealers can deal with their clients and “penny stocks”. For sales of The Company’s Common Stock, the broker/dealer must make a special suitability determination and receive from you a written agreement prior to making a sale to you. The additional burdens imposed upon broker-dealers by the “penny stock” rules may discourage broker-dealers from effecting transactions in The Company’s Common Stock, which could severely limit their market price and liquidity of its Common Stock. This could prevent you from reselling your shares and may cause the price of the Common Stock to decline.

Lack of operating revenues. The Company has limited operating revenues and is expected to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Management has assessed the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern and the financial statements included with this registration statement includes disclosure that there is a substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The audit report of the Company’s principal independent accountants for the years ended December 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017 includes a statement regarding the uncertainty of the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s failure to achieve profitability and positive operating revenues could have a material adverse effect on its financial condition and results of operations, and could cause the Company’s business to fail.

No assurance that forward-looking assessments will be realized. The Company’s ability to accomplish their objectives and whether or not they are financially successful is dependent upon numerous factors, each of which could have a material effect on the results obtained. Some of these factors are in the discretion and control of management and others are beyond management’s control. The assumptions and hypotheses used in preparing any forward-looking assessments contained herein are considered reasonable by management. There can be no assurance, however, that any projections or assessments contained herein or otherwise made by management will be realized or achieved at any level.

Dividend Rights

There are no provisions in the Company’s articles of incorporation or bylaws restricting the Company’s ability to pay dividends on our common stock. Chapter 78 of the Nevada Revised Statutes (the “NRS”) does provide certain limitations on the Company’s ability to declare and pay dividends. Section 78.288 of the NRS prohibits the Company from declaring dividends where, after giving effect to the distribution of the dividend:

  (a)

The Company would not be able to pay its debts as they become due in the usual course of business; or

     
  (b)

Except as allowed in the Company’s articles of incorporation the Company’s total assets would be less than the sum of the Company’s total liabilities plus the amount that would be needed to satisfy any preferential rights.

The Company has never declared, nor paid, any dividend since their incorporation and they do not foresee paying any dividend in the near future since all available funds will be used to conduct the Company’s business development activities. Any future payment of dividends will depend on its financing requirements and financial condition and other factors which the board of directors, in its sole discretion, may consider appropriate.

Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities

During the past three years, the Company has not sold any securities.

Cancellation of issued shares

On August 10, 2016, in connection with the settlement reached with C. Geoffrey Hampson, the Company’s former CEO, as described in “Legal Proceedings” above, 3,022,875 common shares were returned to treasury and subsequently cancelled.

ITEM 7.             MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATION

Plan of Operation

eBalance Distribution Business

In the near term, the Company intends to focus most of its resources on the development of its eBalance distribution business. The Company’s marketing efforts for the eBalance device will initially focus on directly targeting the 10 million Americans aged 65 and older who have diabetes with a combination of advertising on internet platforms such as Facebook, active participation in social media, a dedicated YouTube channel, attendance at major North American health and wellness expositions and direct marketing to doctors, corporations and assisted living communities. Management believes that it will be successful in this endeavor due to the unique aspects of the eBalance device that differentiate it from the current competition in the wellness medical device sector. Those aspects include clinically proven results, ease of use, accessibility, no known harmful side effects, great customer service, and a limited time guarantee.

Domain Name and Web Development Business

In addition to the Company’s eBalance distribution business, the Company intends to maintain its domain name and website development business. Some of its portfolio of domain names, continue to generate meaningful amounts of Internet traffic, which the Company attributes to, among other things, their generic descriptive nature of a product or services category.

Management believes that it can develop and sustain a business based on the lease, sale and other exploitation of domain names because, in part, of its ownership of a number of generic, intuitive domain names which attract significant numbers of visitors to websites utilizing those names. Moreover, because there are a limited number of potential domain names, the Company believes that the value of these names may be significant and may allow the Company to achieve both strategic relationships with leading participants in key Internet businesses and businesses that desire to expand using the Internet, as well as independent operations. Currently the Company owns two websites, Boxing.com and Number.com, which are operated through a verbal arrangement with an independent web developer.

The Company acquired a number of “.cn” domain names through a lottery-allocation in 2003 which are available to be developed.

Management of the company believe that the Company does not have sufficent cash on hand to manage its product distribution and web development operations for the next 12 months and that the Company will need to seek additional financing.

Page 13 of 26


Management’s Discussion and Analysis

The following selected financial data was derived from the Company’s audited and unaudited financial statements. The information set forth below should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements and related notes included elsewhere in this registration statement. From June 2014 to May 2017 the Company operated under receivership. During this time, the Company did not engage in any efforts to develop its business as the receiver’s primary responsibilities during this time were to make recommendations to the court as to whether the Company should be dissolved or otherwise, and to settle and resolve the Company’s ongoing litigation matters. As the Company is no longer operating under receivership, results for fiscal 2018 and 2017 may not be reflective of the Company’s financial results and capital requirements moving forward. In addition, the Company expects to focus its resources on the development of its eBalance distribution business in the near future. This business is significantly different from the domain name and web development business that the Company has historically been engaged in. As a result, historical results and capital requirements are not expected to be reflective of the Company’s financial results and capital requirements moving forward.

Revenue

The Company recognized a gain of $222,265 from the sale of domain names during the year ended December 31, 2017 (2018 - $nil). The Company did not recognize recurring revenues during its 2018 or 2017 fiscal years. The Company does not anticipate recognizing recurring revenues in the short term. The Company continues to market its domain names in its portfolio and considers offers received for domain names in its portfolio. The Company believes its portfolio of domain names will continue to maintain its value over time. Although the Company’s arrangement with the web developer for Boxing.com and Number.com calls for revenues to be split between the Company and the web developer, advertising revenues for those sites has been minimal. As such, the Company has permitted the web developer to retain the advertising revenue to offset against the developer’s costs of operating those sites. The Company does not anticipate earning significant advertising revenue from Boxing.com or Number.com in the near future.

The e-Balance device is a new entry into the medical and wellness device market, without any history of commercial sales. Although the Company intends to devote a significant part of its financial resources towards developing the market for the eBalance device, there is no assurance that it will be able to earn revenues from the distribution of those devices in the near future.

The Company has an accumulated deficit of $17,985,406 to December 31, 2018. The Company is presently in the development stage of their business and cannot provide any assurances that they will be able to generate regular or recurring revenues in the near future.

Results of Operation

Year Ended December 31, 2018 and 2017

Page 14 of 26


The Company recorded a net loss of $770,853 for the year ended December 31, 2018 and net income of $71,040 for the year ended December 31, 2017. During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company incurred non-cash expenses of $113,336 related to the issuance of options to management, directors and consultants as compared to $nil for the year ended December 31, 2017. Due to the uncertainty associated with the commercial success of the e-Balance device, the Company expensed the balance of the $250,000 deposit paid on the execution of the letter of intent with Cell MedX.

The Company recognized a non-recurring gain of $222,265 from the sale of domain names during the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to $nil during the year ended December 31, 2018.

Net income in the year ended December 31, 2017 was also improved by an extraordinary gain on debt retirement of $185,198 compared to $nil gain on debt retirement in the year ended December 31, 2018.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At December 31, 2018, the Company had working capital surplus of $308,381, a decrease of $533,317 from December 31, 2017 ($841,698). The Company did not have any significant source of cashflow during the twelve months ended December 31, 2018. Due to the fact that the Company has incurred recurring losses and anticipates incurring further losses in the future, the Company has determined there is substantial doubt as to its ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company does not believe it has the necessary cash requirements for the next 12 months without having to raise additional funds.

The Company does not anticipate purchasing any plant or significant equipment in the immediate future.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

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

Critical Accounting Policies

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) ("ASU 2014-09"), which amended the existing accounting standards for revenue recognition. ASU 2014-09 establishes principles for recognizing revenue upon the transfer of promised goods or services to customers, in an amount that reflects the expected consideration received in exchange for those goods or services. The Company adopted ASU 2014-09 effective January 1, 2018 and applied the modified retrospective approach. There was no impact to the Company’s recognition of revenue as a consequence of adopting this new standard.

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB (including its Emerging Issues Task Force), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the SEC did not, or are not believed by management to, have a material impact on the Company’s present or future financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

December 31, 2018

(Expressed in US Dollars)




Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

To the shareholders and the board of directors of Live Current Media Inc.

Opinion on the Consolidated Financial Statements
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Live Current Media Inc. (the "Company") as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the "financial statements"). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Going Concern
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company has not achieved profitable operations with further losses anticipated and has an accumulated deficit of $17,985,406. The Company requires additional funds to meet its obligations and the costs of its operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in this regard are described in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty
Basis for Opinion

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) ("PCAOB") and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. As part of our audits we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB.

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

LIVE CURRENT MEDIA INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2018

1.     NATURE AND CONTINUANCE OF OPERATIONS

Live Current Media Inc. (the “Company” or “Live Current”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on October 10, 1995. The Company’s wholly owned principal operating subsidiary, Domain Holdings Inc. (“DHI”), was incorporated under the laws of British Columbia on July 4, 1994.

On March 13, 2008, the Company incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary in the state of Delaware, Perfume.com Inc. (Perfume Inc.) which is a dormant and inactive company.

Through DHI, the Company builds consumer Internet experiences around its portfolio of domain names. DHI’s current business strategy is to develop, or to seek partners to develop, its domain names to include content, commerce and community applications. On June 4, 2014, a judge in Reno, Nevada ordered a receiver to take charge of the Company’s business. On May 4, 2017, the Company was discharged from receivership (Note 8).

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As of December 31, 2018, the Company has not achieved profitable operations, has incurred recurring operating losses and further losses are possible. The Company has an accumulated deficit of $17,985,406. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to obtain the necessary financing to further develop its business. To date, the Company has funded operations through the issuance of capital stock and debt. Management plans to continue raising additional funds through equity or debt financings and loans from directors. There is no certainty that further funding will be available as needed. These factors raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue operating as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue its operations as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to raise sufficient new capital to fund its operating commitments and ongoing losses and ultimately on generating profitable operations. The financial statements do not include any adjustments to be recorded to assets or liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

2.     SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

These consolidated financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“US GAAP’), and are expressed in United States dollars.

Basis of Presentation

These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances have been eliminated on consolidation.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP 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. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors 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 and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company’s estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.

2.     SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Cash and cash equivalents

All highly liquid investments, with an original term to maturity of three months or less are classified as cash and cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents are stated at cost which approximates market value.

Intangible Assets not subject to amortization

Intangible assets not subject to amortization consist of direct navigation domain names. While the domain names are renewed annually, through payment of a renewal fee to the applicable registry, the Company has the exclusive right to renew these names at its option. The Company has determined that there are currently no legal, regulatory, contractual, economic or other factors that limit the useful life of these domain names on an aggregate basis and accordingly treat the portfolio of domain names as indefinite life intangible assets.

The Company reviews individual domain names in the portfolio for potential impairment throughout the fiscal year in determining whether a particular URL should be renewed. Impairment is recognized for names that are not renewed. The Company performs an annual assessment of individual domain names in its portfolio to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair market value of a domain name is less than its carrying amount. When it is determined that the fair value of a domain name is less than its carrying amount, impairment is recognized.

As at December 31, 2018, the weighted remaining average period before the next renewal with the applicable registry is 1.11 years (December 31, 2017: 3.06 years).

Foreign Currency Translation

The Company’s functional currency is the US dollar and reporting currency is the United States dollar. The Company translates assets and liabilities to US dollars using year-end exchange rates, stockholders’ deficit accounts are translated at historical exchange rates, and translates revenues and expenses using average exchange rates during the period. Gains and losses arising on settlement of foreign currency denominated transactions or balances are included in the Statement of Operations.

Income taxes

The Company follows the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under this method, current income taxes are recognized for the estimated income taxes payable for the current year. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are recognized in the current year for temporary differences between the tax and accounting basis of assets and liabilities as well as for the benefit of losses available to be carried forward to future years for tax purposes. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are measured using tax rates and laws expected to apply in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect of a change in tax rates on deferred income tax assets and liabilities is recognized in operations in the year of change. A valuation allowance is recorded when it is “more likely-than-not” that a deferred tax asset will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities, along with any associated valuation allowance, are offset and shown in the financial statements as a single noncurrent amount when these items arise within the same tax jurisdiction.

The Company and its subsidiaries are subject to U.S. federal income tax and Canadian income tax, as well as income tax of multiple state and local jurisdictions. Based on the Company’s evaluation, the Company has concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in the Company’s financial statements.

2.     SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Share Based Payments

The Company accounts for all stock-based payments and awards under the fair value based method. The Company accounts for the granting of stock options to employees using the fair value method whereby all awards to employees will be measured at fair value on the date of the grant. The fair value of all stock options are expensed over their vesting period with a corresponding increase to additional paid-in capital. Upon exercise of stock options, the consideration paid by the option holder, together with the amount previously recognized in additional paid-in capital is recorded as an increase to share capital. Stock options granted to employees are accounted for as liabilities when they contain conditions or other features that are indexed to other than a market, performance or service condition. Stock-based payments to non-employees are measured at the fair value of the consideration received, or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, or liabilities incurred, whichever is more reliably measurable. The fair value of stock-based payments to non-employees is periodically re-measured until the counterparty performance is complete, and any change therein is recognized over the vesting period of the award and in the same manner as if the Company had paid cash instead of paying with or using equity based instruments. The fair value of the stock-based payments to non-employees that are fully vested and non-forfeitable as at the grant date are measured and recognized at that date.

The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to calculate the fair value of stock options. The use of the Black-Scholes option pricing model requires management to make assumptions with respect to the expected term of the option, the expected volatility of the common stock consistent with the expected term of the option, risk-free interest rates, the value of the common stock and expected dividend yield of the common stock. Changes in these assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimate.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The estimated fair values for financial instruments are determined based on relevant market information. These estimates involve uncertainties and cannot be determined with precision. The estimated fair value of cash, receivable, accounts payable and amounts due to shareholders of Auctomatic approximate their carrying value due to the short-term nature of those instruments.

ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. ASC 820 prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

Level 2 – Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are either directly or indirectly observable; and

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity, there for requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions about the assumption that market participants would use in pricing.

The Company had no Level 3 assets or liabilities required to be recorded at fair value on a recurring basis in accordance with US GAAP as at December 31, 2018 and 2017.

2.     SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Basic and Diluted Income (Loss) per Share

Earnings or loss per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average of all potentially dilutive shares of the common stock that were outstanding during the years presented. The treasury stock method is used in calculating diluted EPS for potentially dilutive stock options and share purchase warrants, which assumes that any proceeds received from the exercise of in-the-money stock options and share purchase warrants, would be used to purchase common shares at the average market price for the period.

Adoption of New Accounting Pronouncement

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) ("ASU 2014-09"), which amended the existing accounting standards for revenue recognition. ASU 2014-09 establishes principles for recognizing revenue upon the transfer of promised goods or services to customers, in an amount that reflects the expected consideration received in exchange for those goods or services. The Company adopted ASU 2014-09 effective January 1, 2018 and applied the modified retrospective approach. There was no impact to the Company’s recognition of revenue as a consequence of adopting this new standard.

3.     SHARE CAPITAL

Authorized

The authorized capital of the Company consists of 500,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.001 per share. No other shares have been authorized

4.     STOCK OPTIONS

The Company’s 2018 Stock Option Plan (the “Plan”) was approved by the Board of Directors on November 28, 2018. The Plan will provide for the grant of 5,000,000 shares of common stock of the Corporation, subject to increase after March 31, 2019, upon approval by the Corporation’s directors, provided that the total number of shares that may be optioned and sold under the Plan shall at no time be greater than 15% of total number of shares of common stock outstanding, less any options still outstanding under any previous stock option plan.

The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to calculate the fair value of stock options. The use of the Black-Scholes option pricing model requires management to make assumptions with respect to the expected term of the option, the expected volatility of the common stock consistent with the expected term of the option, risk-free interest rates, the value of the common stock and expected dividend yield of the common stock. Changes in these assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimates

On November 30, 2018, the board of directors of the Company granted option to purchase up to 1,000,000 shares of the Company to it CEO, up to 400,000 shares of the Company to its directors and up to 400,000 shares of the Company to its Consultants.

The total fair value of the options granted to the CEO, directors and consultants was calculated to be $107,482.

5.     DOMAIN PROCEEDS RECEIVABLE

On October 6, 2017, the Company sold a domain name for total consideration of $150,000 less a brokerage fee of $15,000. The domain purchase and transfer agreement included terms that allowed the purchaser to make monthly instalment payments of $7,500, net of the brokerage fee, over a period of 18 months. The domain is being held by an independent escrow agent during the period the remaining balance in respect of this sale is outstanding. The purchaser is entitled to control the domain name while being held in escrow but, in the event of a default that is not successfully remedied, all rights to the domain name will be transferred back to the Company and all payments made by the purchaser will be forfeited. As at December 31, 2018, the balance remaining on this receivable totaled $22,500. .

6.     DEPOSIT

On September 10, 2018, Live Current entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the “LOI”) with Cell MedX Corp. (Cell MedX) for worldwide distribution rights of the e-Balance device for home-based usage. The e-Balance device is a micro-current therapy device designed to target complications arising from diabetes but has yet to receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). Pursuant to the LOI, the Company agreed to enter into negotiations aimed at obtaining a definitive agreement within a 90-day period (Note 10). The Company advanced US$250,000 as a deposit for exclusive worldwide distribution rights. The probability of success and length of time to obtain Federal Drug Administration approval of the e-Balance device is difficult to determine and there are uncertainties associated with the timely completion of the device’s commercial success. Due to the uncertainties associated with the successful commercialization of the e-Balance device, it has been determined that the payment of this deposit does not meet the definition of an asset and is thus expensed within general and administrative expenses.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) as of December 31, 2018 (the “Evaluation Date”). This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer. Based upon that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the Evaluation Date.

Management's Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, for the Company.

Our internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that: (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Under the supervision and with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting, as of the Evaluation Date, based on the framework set forth in Internal Control-Integrated Framework 2013 issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). Based on its evaluation under this framework, management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was effective as of the Evaluation Date.

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit us to provide only management's report in this annual report.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

As of the Evaluation Date, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 that have materially affected, or that are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls and Procedures

Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, do not expect that our controls and procedures will prevent all potential error and fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met

The Company does not have a compensation committee. The Board of Directors conducts reviews with regard to the compensation of the directors and the Chief Executive Officer once a year. To make its recommendations on such compensation, the Board of Directors takes into account the types of compensation and the amounts paid to officers of comparable publicly traded companies.

100,000 options were granted outside of the Company’s 2018 Stock Option Plan.

2018 Stock Option Plan

On November 28, 2018, tour board of directors approved and adopted the Company’s 2018 Stock Option Plan (the “Plan”). The purpose of the Plan is to enhance long-term shareholder value by offering the Company’s directors, officers, employees and eligible consultants the ability to acquire and maintain stock ownership in the Company and to participate in the Company’s future growth.

The Plan allows the board to grant awards to officers, directors, employees and certain eligible consultants. To be eligible for grants under the Plan, consultants must be individuals who (1) render bona fide services to the Company not connected to the offer or sale of the Company’s securities in capital raising transactions, and (2) do not directly or indirectly promote or maintain a market for the Company’s securities.

Initially, up to 5,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock may be purchased pursuant to options granted under the Plan. After March 31, 2019, the Board may increase the shares of common stock that may be purchased under the Plan, provided that the total number of shares that may be purchased under the Plan cannot exceed 15% of the total number of shares outstanding, less any options outstanding under previous stock option plans.

Awards under the Plan may be granted in the form of incentive stock options or non-qualified stock options. Incentive stock options granted under the Plan are those intended to qualify as “incentive stock options” as defined under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”). To qualify as “incentive stock options” under Section 422 of the Code, the Plan must be approved by the stockholders of the Company within 12 months of its adoption. If the Plan is not approved by the Company’s stockholders within 12 months of its adoption, any options granted as “incentive stock options” will be treated as “non-qualifying stock options”. Non-qualified stock options granted under the Plan are option grants that do not qualify as incentive stock options under Section 422 of the Code.

The exercise price for incentive stock options granted under the Plan cannot be less than the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant (110% of fair market value for optionees that own 10% of the combined voting power of the Company). Non-qualified stock options may not have an exercise price less than 75% of fair market value at the time of grant. “Fair market value” for purposes of the Plan is defined as the lesser of the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the day immediately preceding the date of grant, and the average closing price of the Company’s common stock during the ten trading days immediately preceding the grant date, provided that the Company’s common stock trades on a national securities exchange or the OTC Link system (maintained by OTC Markets Group Inc.). If the Company’s common stock does not trade on the OTC Link or a national securities exchange in the United States, the Board may determine fair market value, acting in good faith.

Options granted under the Plan have a maximum term of ten years from the grant date, or such lesser period as determined by the Board.

Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management

The following table sets forth certain information concerning the number of common shares owned beneficially as of March 28, 2019 by: (i) each person (including any group) known to us to own more than five percent (5%) of any class of the Company’s voting securities, (ii) each of its directors, (iii) each of its named executive officers; and (iv) officers and directors as a group. Unless otherwise indicated, the shareholders listed possess sole voting and investment power with respect to the shares shown.

Notes:

Under Rule 13d-3, a beneficial owner of a security includes any person who, directly or indirectly, through any contract, arrangement, understanding, relationship, or otherwise has or shares: (i) voting power, which includes the power to vote, or to direct the voting of shares; and (ii) investment power, which includes the power to dispose or direct the disposition of shares. Certain shares may be deemed to be beneficially owned by more than one person (if, for example, persons share the power to vote or the power to dispose of the shares). In addition, shares are deemed to be beneficially owned by a person if the person has the right to acquire the shares (for example, upon exercise of an option) within 60 days of the date as of which the information is provided. In computing the percentage ownership of any person, the amount of shares outstanding is deemed to include the number of shares beneficially owned by such person (and only such person) by reason of these acquisition rights. As a result, the percentage of outstanding shares of any person as shown in this table does not necessarily reflect the person’s actual ownership or voting power with respect to the number of its shares actually outstanding on [date]. As of March 28, 2019, there were 34,837,625 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.
