IMPLICATIONS OF BEING AN EMERGING GROWTH COMPANY

 

As a company with less than $1.235 billion in revenue during our most recently completed fiscal year, we qualify as an “emerging growth company” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “Securities Act,”) as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”). As an emerging growth company, we may take advantage of specified reduced disclosure and other exemptions from requirements that are otherwise applicable to public companies that are not emerging growth companies. These provisions include:

 

  Reduced disclosure about our executive compensation arrangements;
     
  Exemptions from non-binding shareholder advisory votes on executive compensation or golden parachute; and
     
  Exemption from auditor attestation requirement in the assessment of our internal control over financial reporting.

 

We will remain an emerging growth company until the earliest of (i) the last day of the year in which we have total annual gross revenue of $1.235 billion or more; (ii) the last day of the year following the fifth anniversary of the first sale of the common equity securities pursuant to an effective registration under the Securities Act; (iii) the date on which we have issued more than $1.0 billion in nonconvertible debt during the previous three years; or (iv) the date on which we are deemed to be a large accelerated filer under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

In addition, the JOBS Act provides that an emerging growth company can take advantage of an extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards. This provision allows an emerging growth company to delay the adoption of some accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We have elected to use this extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards that have different effective dates for public and private companies until the earlier of the date we (i) are no longer an emerging growth company or (ii) affirmatively and irrevocably opt out of the extended transition period provided in the JOBS Act.

LQR HOUSE INC.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

LQR House Inc. (“LQR” or the “Company”) was incorporated on January 11, 2021, in the state of Delaware. On February 3, 2023, the Company changed its state of incorporation to the State of Nevada by merging into LQR House Inc., a Nevada corporation. The Company operates primarily in the beverage alcohol industry owning specialty brands, providing marketing and distribution services.

 

As of March 31, 2024, the Company has not achieved its planned level of operations. The Company’s activities since inception have been limited and consisted of formation activities, commencement of operations and capital raising activities. To date, the Company has only generated limited amounts of revenue and the Company is dependent on external capital, including funds from the initial public offering (described below) to execute its planned operations.

 

Country Wine & Spirits (“CWS”) Platform

 

On November 1, 2023, LQR House Acquisition Corp. (the “Buyer”), a subsidiary of the Company, and SSquared Spirits LLC (the “Seller”) entered into a Domain Name Transfer Agreement (“Agreement”). Pursuant to the Agreement, the Seller irrevocably sold, assigned, transferred, and conveyed to the Buyer (a) all right, title, and interest in and to the domain name www.cwspirits.com (the “Domain Name”, or “CWS Platform”), including its current registration and (b) any other rights (including, but not limited to, trademark rights associated with the Domain Name in any jurisdiction, all Internet traffic through the Domain Name and all Website Content (as defined in the Agreement) the Seller may have in the Domain Name, together with any goodwill associated therewith in exchange for the payment by the Buyer of the purchase price of $10,000. See Note 4.

 

The Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Sean Dollinger, owns 50% of the equity of the Seller, and the other 50% is owned by a minority shareholder of the Company. A Special Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors consisting of all independent directors approved the terms of the Agreement on November 1, 2023. See Note 6.

 

Stock Dividend in the Form of Stock Split

 

In February 2024, the Board of Directors declared a 50% stock dividend for distribution to all of the Company’s shareholders of record at the close of business on February 12, 2024. On March 1, 2024, 1,609,817 shares were issued per dividend. As a result of the stock dividend, a 3:2 stock split was effected. Accordingly, all share and per share amounts for all periods presented in the accompanying financial statements and notes thereto have been adjusted retroactively, where applicable, to reflect the stock split.

 

2. GOING CONCERN

 

The Company has evaluated whether there are certain conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are issued.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has not generated profits since inception, has sustained net losses of $2,427,392 and $322,074 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, and has negative cash flows from operations of $1,374,040 for the three months ended March 31, 2024. The Company requires additional capital to operate and expects losses to continue in the foreseeable future. These factors raise substantial doubts about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern until it reaches profitability is dependent upon its ability to generate cash from operating activities and to raise additional capital to fund operations. Management plans to raise additional capital to fund operations through debt and/or equity financings. The Company has raised funds from the initial public offering in August 2023 and an additional $16.6 million from its public offerings in October and November 2023. Our failure to raise additional capital could have a negative impact on not only our financial condition but also our ability to execute our business plan. No assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in these efforts. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. The Company may not be able to obtain financing on acceptable terms, or at all.

 

3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accounting and reporting policies of the Company conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The Company’s fiscal year end is December 31.

 

The Company is an emerging growth company as the term is used in The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act and has elected to comply with certain reduced public company reporting requirements, however, the Company may adopt accounting standards based on the effective dates for public entities when early adoption is permitted.

 

5

 

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, LQR House Acquisition Corp. All inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated on consolidation.

 

Unaudited Interim Financial Information

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP for interim financial information, within the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Certain information and disclosures normally included in the annual financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared on a basis consistent with the audited financial statements and in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the fair presentation of the results for the interim periods presented and of the financial condition as of the date of the interim balance sheet. The financial data and the other information disclosed in these notes to the interim financial statements related to the three-month periods are unaudited. Unaudited interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full fiscal year.

 

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and the notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2023 included in the Form 10-K filed with the SEC on April 1, 2024.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the Company’s financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the 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. Significant estimates and assumptions reflected in these financial statements include, but are not limited to, the valuation of assets acquired and liabilities assumed pursuant to business combinations, and stock-based compensation. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience, known trends and other market-specific or other relevant factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. On an ongoing basis, management evaluates its estimates when there are changes in circumstances, facts, and experience. Changes in estimates are recorded in the period in which they become known. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk

 

The Company maintains its cash with a major financial institution located in the United States of America which it believes to be credit worthy. Balances are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to $250,000. At times, the Company maintains balances in excess of the federally insured limits.

 

Concentrations

 

The Company’s ability to derive revenue is reliant on its relationship with KBROS who currently handles product for the CWS Platform and fulfills the products sold by clientele using our marketing services. The discontinuance of such relationship or termination of the CWS Platform agreements would have a material negative impact on the Company’s operations.

 

Furthermore, the Company relies and expects to continue to rely on a small number of vendors. The loss of one of these vendors may have a negative short-term impact on the Company’s operations. However, the Company believes there are acceptable substitute vendors that can be utilized longer term.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less at the date of purchase to be cash equivalents.

 

6

 

 

Marketable Securities

 

The Company has investments in mutual funds. The investments are classified as available-for-sale and are held at fair value. The investments have a readily determinable fair value and as such, are recognized as a Level 1 instrument.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

Certain assets and liabilities of the Company are carried at fair value under GAAP. Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. Financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value are to be classified and disclosed in one of the following three levels of the fair value hierarchy, of which the first two are considered observable and the last is considered unobservable:

 

Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2—Observable inputs (other than Level 1 quoted prices), such as quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active for identical or similar assets or liabilities, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.

 

Level 3—Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity that are significant to determining the fair value of the assets or liabilities, including pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies and similar techniques.

 

The carrying values of the Company’s accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate their fair values due to the short maturity of these instruments. The Company believes the carrying amount of its advances to related parties approximate fair value due to its short-term maturity.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers¸ the Company determines revenue recognition through the following steps:

 

Identification of a contract with a customer;

 

Identification of the performance obligations in the contract;

 

Determination of the transaction price;

 

Allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and

 

Recognition of revenue when or as the performance obligations are satisfied.

 

Revenue is recognized when performance obligations are satisfied through the transfer of control of promised goods to the Company’s customers in an amount that reflects the consideration expected to be received in exchange for transferring goods or services to customers. Control transfers once a customer has the ability to direct the use of, and obtain substantially all of the benefits from, the product. This includes the transfer of legal title, physical possession, the risks and rewards of ownership, and customer acceptance.

 

The Company derives its revenue from marketing services, sales via the CWS Platform, distribution of its SWOL Tequila product and subscription-based membership revenue. Revenue is reported net of discounts.

 

Marketing Services

 

The Company contracts with third-party alcoholic beverage brands to utilize access to the CWS Platform. The Company and the brands enter into a commercial relationship. The Company performs services such as creating a marketing campaign strategy, developing promotional materials and advertising promotional materials through the CWS Platform. Revenue is recognized over a period time, as the marketing services are being continually provided on a daily and monthly basis over the life of an agreed upon campaign. Marketing campaigns generally range from one to three months.

 

7

 

 

CWS Platform

 

Cwsspirits.com is an e-commerce platform that sells in wine and spirits in the USA. The Company is responsible for contracting with CWS and customers to fulfill orders through the website. The Company has the ability to direct customers to CWS to fulfill the order. The Company, though not legally able to own alcohol inventory, does take on financial inventory risk. The Company is solely responsible for any risk of loss of the end customer and paying to replenish the loss order. Additionally, the Company enters into minimum guaranteed purchase commitments with its vendor that require the Company to pay for any inventory not sold during the year. The Company establishes the price and selection of products to be sold on the CWS Platform, and directs all marketing activities pertaining to the Platform. As such, the Company is the primary obligor for transactions with customers on the CWS Platform and records gross revenue. Revenue is recognized at the point in time when products are delivered to the end customer, when LQR has fulfilled its performance obligation, net of returns.

 

Product Sales

 

The Company wholly owns SWOL Tequila, a tequila made in limited batches from a third-party producer located in Mexico. The Company facilitates all efforts to get the product delivered to CWS for retail distribution in the United States, including advancing costs for production, shipping and other importing and delivery charges. The Company is entitled to payment of cost plus an additional 20% on each bottle of SWOL Tequila sold to CWS. Revenue is recognized at the point in which the products are delivered to CWS, when LQR has fulfilled its performance obligation. Due to certain restrictions on the delivery and custodianship of alcoholic beverage, CWS is requires to take ownership of the product at time of delivery, and there is no recourse or right of return. The Company records gross revenue as it’s the primary obligor in the transaction.

 

Vault

 

Vault is the exclusive membership program for CWS Platform customers. Through the CWS Platform, users can sign up for membership where they will have access to all products available through CWS combined with special membership benefits including discounted products, free shipping and promotional offers. Prior to the acquisition of the CWS Platform, the Company marketed this membership program on the CWS Platform and was entitled to 50% of the revenue from the subscriptions as the agent of the transaction.

The following is a summary of the disaggregation of revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023:

Revenue – services   43,791    150,563 
           
Total revenues  $481,094   $150,563 

 

Cost of Revenue

 

Cost of revenue consists of all direct costs attributable to performing marketing services and the Company’s product sales. Cost of revenue includes product costs, affiliate payouts, contracted marketing services, direct advertising costs for marketing campaigns, packaging, shipping and other importing and delivery charges. Cost of revenue also includes customer service personnel and amortization of the Company’s marketing license asset in 2023.

 

Sales and Marketing

 

Sales and marketing costs primarily consist of advertising, promotional expenses and marketing consulting and advisory services. Sales and marketing costs also include sales commissions.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

Stock-based compensation is accounted for in accordance with ASC Topic 718-10, Compensation-Stock Compensation (“ASC 718-10”). The Company measures all equity-based awards granted to employees, independent contractors and advisors based on the fair value on the date of the grant and recognizes compensation expense for those awards over the requisite service period, which is generally the vesting period of the respective award.

 

The Company classifies equity based compensation expense in its statement of operations in the same manner in which the award recipient’s payroll or contractor costs are classified or in which the award recipient’s service payments are classified.

 

Net Loss per Share

 

Net earnings or loss per share is computed by dividing net income or loss by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, excluding shares subject to redemption or forfeiture. The Company presents basic and diluted net earnings or loss per share. Diluted net earnings or loss per share reflect the actual weighted average of common shares issued and outstanding during the period, adjusted for potentially dilutive securities outstanding. Potentially dilutive securities are excluded from the computation of the diluted net loss per share if their inclusion would be anti-dilutive. As all potentially dilutive securities are anti-dilutive as of March 31, 2024 and 2023, diluted net loss per share is the same as basic net loss per share for each year. Potentially dilutive items outstanding as of March 31, 2024 include the Company’s outstanding restricted stock units (See Note 6).

  

Recently Issued and Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards could have a material effect on the accompanying financial statements. As new accounting pronouncements are issued, the Company will adopt those that are applicable under the circumstances.

4. ACQUISITION OF CWS PLATFORM

 

On November 1, 2023, LQR House Acquisition Corp. (the “Buyer”), a subsidiary of the Company, and SSquared Spirits LLC (the “Seller”, or “SSquared”) entered into a Domain Name Transfer Agreement (“Agreement”). Pursuant to the Agreement, the Seller irrevocably sold, assigned, transferred, and conveyed to the Buyer (a) all right, title, and interest in and to the domain name www.cwspirits.com (the “Domain Name”, or “CWS Platform”), including its current registration and (b) any other rights (including, but not limited to, trademark rights associated with the Domain Name in any jurisdiction, all Internet traffic through the Domain Name and all Website Content (as defined in the Agreement) the Seller may have in the Domain Name, together with any goodwill associated therewith in exchange for the payment by the Buyer of the purchase price of $10,000.

 

Under Regulation S-X 3-05, management determined that the CWS Platform acquisition constituted a business combination as the revenue producing activity (e-commerce sales) is expected to be similar both pre and post-domain name acquisition. As such, the Company recorded an intangible asset of $10,000 for the purchase price consideration of the domain name.  

 

Management assessed the fair value of the Domain Name and CWS Platform in determining to allocate the $10,000 to the domain name. In making such determination, management considered the related party nature of the transaction, the current environment for direct-to-consumer alcoholic beverage companies and the related competition in which they operate, and the fact that the initial and continued operation of the CWS Platform is completely dependent on the relationship between the Company, our CEO and a minority shareholder, who co-owned SSquared and operates KBROS, LLC (“KBROS” or the “Product Handler”), the Company’s contracted product handler. Without such relationship, which can be terminated in certain circumstances, the underlying CWS Platform would be unable to operate as intended until a suitable alterative product handler would be identified. Therefore, no fair value in excess of the consideration provided was considered. 

 

The Company has consolidated the results of operations of the CWS Platform since November 1, 2023.

Revenue

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, service revenues were $43,791 and $150,563, respectively. Service revenues are earned as we contract with third-party alcoholic beverage brands to utilize access to the CWS Platform, as well as vault memberships. Service revenues decreased by $106,772 as more focus was emphasized on the CWS Platform.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2024 product revenues were $437,303 compared to $0 in the similar 2023 period. The increase was due to $485,571 in revenues generated from the CWS Platform after the acquisition in November 2023.

 

Cost of Revenue

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, service cost of revenues were $37,208 and $102,997, respectively. Cost of revenues services decreased by $65,789 in 2024, corresponding to the decreased revenues. In 2023, cost of revenues included amortization of the marketing license, which was impaired as of December 31, 2023.

 

Product cost of revenues related to the SWOL batch was $523,383 in the three months ended March 31, 2024. The increase was due to product and shipping costs associated with the CWS Platform acquisition in November 2023.

 

General and Administrative

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, general and administrative expenses were $1,606,461 and $321,317, respectively. General and administrative expenses increased due to professional fees, personnel costs and other public company expenses as our operations scaled upon our initial public offering in August 2023. In 2024, the Company recorded $720,842 in non-cash stock-based compensation expense due to vesting of restricted stock units.

 

15

 

 

Sales and Marketing

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, sales and marketing expenses were $786,415 and $48,323 respectively. The increase of $738,092 was primarily due to advertising and marketing and investor relation campaigns beginning in late 2023 and continuing in the first quarter of 2024.

 

Net Loss

 

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023 was $2,427,392 and $322,074 respectively.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, we had cash and cash equivalents of $1,781,907 and $7,064,348 respectively. As of March 31, 2024, we also had $4,030,986 in mutual fund investments. To date, we have financed our operations primarily through issuances of common stock and sales of our products and services.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has not generated profits since inception, has sustained net losses of $2,427,392 and $322,074 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, and has negative cash flows from operations of $1,374,040 for the three months ended March 31, 2024. The Company requires additional capital to operate and expects losses to continue for the foreseeable future. These factors raise substantial doubts about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern until it reaches profitability is dependent upon its ability to generate cash from operating activities and to raise additional capital to fund operations. Management plans to raise additional capital to fund operations through debt and/or equity financings. The Company has raised funds from the initial public offering in August 2023 and an additional $16.6 million from its public offerings in October and November 2023. Our failure to raise additional capital could have a negative impact on not only our financial condition but also our ability to execute our business plan. No assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in these efforts. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. The Company may not be able to obtain financing on acceptable terms, or at all.

This discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, as well as the reported expenses incurred during the reporting periods. Our estimates are based on our historical experience and on various other factors that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. While our significant accounting policies are described in more detail in the notes to our financial statements included elsewhere in this prospectus, we believe that the following accounting policies are critical to understanding our historical and future performance, as these policies relate to the more significant areas involving management’s judgments and estimates.

 

There have been no material changes in our critical accounting policies from those disclosed in our 2023 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) and are not required to provide the information required under this item.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Because of the inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures, no evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, with a company have been prevented or detected on a timely basis. Even disclosure controls and procedures determined to be effective can only provide reasonable assurance that their objectives are achieved.

 

As of March 31, 2024, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(e)) pursuant to Rule 13a-15 of the Exchange Act. Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are ineffective at a reasonable assurance level.

 

Our size has prevented us from being able to employ sufficient resources to enable us to have an adequate level of supervision and segregation of duties. Therefore, it is difficult to effectively segregate accounting duties which comprise a material weakness in internal controls. This lack of segregation of duties leads management to conclude that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective to give reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed in reports that the Company files under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported as and when required.

 

To the extent reasonably possible given our limited resources, we intend to take measures to cure the aforementioned weaknesses, including, but not limited to, increasing the capacity of our qualified financial personnel to ensure that accounting policies and procedures are consistent across the organization and that we have adequate control over our Exchange Act reporting disclosures.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control procedures over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act) during our fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2024 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

As a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and in item 10(f)(1) of Regulation S-K, we are electing scaled disclosure reporting obligations and therefore are not required to provide the information requested by this item. In any event, there have been no material changes in our risk factors as previously disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on April 1, 2024.

 

ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS

 

In August 2023, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a share buyback program under which the Company can repurchase up to 20% of its common stock in open market and privately negotiated purchases, in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Exchange Act. The Company engaged and entered into an agreement with Dominari Securities LLC (“Dominari”) on August 28, 2023, to effect the share buyback program. The share buyback program commenced in September 2023. Dominari shall determine, in its sole discretion, the timing, amount, prices and manner of purchase of securities during such period. The share buyback program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of common stock, and the program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

 

In January 2024, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized an increase of the share buyback program to $5,000,000.
