Monaker Group, Inc. and Subsidiaries 

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

Note 1 – Summary of Business Operations and Significant Accounting Policies

 

Nature of Operations and Business Organization

 

Monaker Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries (“Monaker”, “we”, “our”, “us”, or “Company”) is an innovative technology company that is building next generation solutions to power the travel, gaming, and cryptocurrency industries. We believe the most promising part of the business plan for our travel operations is the incorporation of Monaker’s proprietary Booking Engine and sizeable alternative lodging rental (ALR) properties into well-established marketplaces (i.e., a business-to-business (B2B) model) thereby facilitating easy access of alternative lodging rentals inventory to contracted global distributor partners.

 

The Company’s travel operation serves three major constituents: (1) property managers, (2) travelers, and (3) other travel/lodging distributors. Property managers integrate their detailed property listings into the Monaker Booking Engine with the goal of reaching a broad audience of travelers seeking ALRs, through distribution channels they could not access otherwise.

 

The Company’s planned gaming and cryptocurrency operations are expected to provide fully regulated and licensed (through the Thai Securities and Exchange Commission) digital asset financing, and investment services for digital assets. This innovative business model opens the door for new digital currency financing mechanisms and new digital investment products. Monaker has plans to use this innovative technology and digital asset capabilities to create regulated cryptocurrencies designed to allow consumers to invest in unique revenue streams in wholesale travel, real estate homes and hotels, gaming assets and digital advertising – as well as potential token and loyalty program opportunities complementary to Monaker’s planned gaming (in connection with the acquisition of HotPlay Enterprise Limited, assuming such acquisition is completed, as discussed below) and current travel businesses.

 

Interim Financial Statements

 

These unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“US GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X. Accordingly, the consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included and such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements for the fiscal year ended February 29, 2020 and notes thereto and other pertinent information contained in the Form 10-K the Company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 29, 2020.

 

The results of operations for the nine months ended November 30, 2020, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year ending February 28, 2021.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All material inter-company transactions and accounts have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with 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 revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. These differences could have a material effect on the Company’s future results of operations and financial position. Significant items subject to estimates and assumptions include the fair value of investments, the carrying amounts of intangible assets, depreciation and amortization, the valuation of stock options, and deferred income taxes.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

For purposes of balance sheet presentation and reporting of cash flows, the Company considers all unrestricted demand deposits, money market funds and highly liquid debt instruments with an original maturity of less than 90 days to be cash and cash equivalents. The Company had no cash equivalents at November 30, 2020 and February 29, 2020.

 

Website Development Costs

 

The Company accounts for website development costs in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 350-50 “Website Development Costs”. Accordingly, all costs incurred in the planning stage are expensed as incurred, costs incurred in the website application and infrastructure development stage that meet specific criteria are capitalized and costs incurred in the day-to-day operation of the website are expensed as incurred. All costs associated with the websites are subject to straight-line amortization over a three-year period.

 

Software Development Costs

 

The Company capitalizes internal software development costs after establishing technological feasibility of a software application in accordance with guidelines established by “ASC 985-20-25” Accounting for the Costs of Software to Be Sold, Leased, or Otherwise Marketed, requiring certain software development costs to be capitalized upon the establishment of technological feasibility. The establishment of technological feasibility and the ongoing assessment of the recoverability of these costs require considerable judgment by management with respect to certain external factors such as anticipated future revenue, estimated economic life, and changes in software and hardware technologies. Amortization of the capitalized software development costs begins when the product is available for general release to customers. Capitalized costs are amortized based on the straight-line method over the remaining estimated economic life of the product.

 

Business Combination

The acquisition of Longroot, Inc. was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations (“ASC 805”). ASC 805 requires, among other things, that assets acquired, and liabilities assumed be recognized at their fair values, as determined in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements, as of the closing date. ASC 805 establishes a measurement period to provide the Company with a reasonable amount of time to obtain the information necessary to identify and measure various items in a business combination and cannot extend beyond one year from the acquisition date.

Impairment of Intangible Assets

 

In accordance with ASC 350-30-65 “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets”, the Company assesses the impairment of identifiable intangible assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. Factors the Company considers important, which could trigger an impairment review include the following:

 

  1. Significant underperformance compared to historical or projected future operating results;
     
  2. Significant changes in the manner or use of the acquired assets or the strategy for the overall business; and
     
  3. Significant negative industry or economic trends.

 

When the Company determines that the carrying value of an intangible asset may not be recoverable based upon the existence of one or more of the above indicators of impairment and the carrying value of the asset cannot be recovered from projected undiscounted cash flows, the Company records an impairment charge. The Company measures any impairment based on a projected discounted cash flow method using a discount rate determined by management to be commensurate with the risk inherent to the current business model. Significant management judgment is required in determining whether an indicator of impairment exists and in projecting cash flows. Intangible assets that have finite useful lives are amortized over their useful lives. The Company incurred amortization expense of $248,980 and $220,353 during the nine months ended November 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Convertible Debt Instruments

 

The Company records debt net of debt discount for beneficial conversion features and warrants, on a relative fair value basis. Beneficial conversion features are recorded pursuant to the Beneficial Conversion and Debt Topics of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification. The amounts allocated to warrants and beneficial conversion rights are recorded as debt discount and as additional paid-in-capital. Debt discount is amortized to interest expense over the life of the debt.

 

Reclassification

 

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current period presentation. The reclassification has no impact on the total assets, total liabilities, stockholders’ equity, and net loss for the period.

 

Earnings per Share

 

Basic earnings per share are computed by dividing net income or loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share are computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock, common stock equivalents and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during each period.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

We recognize revenue when the customer has purchased the product, the occurrence of the earlier of date of travel or the date of cancellation has expired, the sales price is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Revenue for customer travel packages purchased directly from the Company are recorded gross (the amount paid to the Company by the customer is shown as revenue and the cost of providing the respective travel package is recorded to cost of revenues).

 

We generate our revenues from sales directly to customers as well as through other distribution channels of tours and activities at destinations throughout the world. We also generate revenue from commissions on bookings and sales of ancillary products and services.

 

Payments for tours or activities received in advance of services being rendered are recorded as deferred revenue and recognized as revenue at the earlier of the date of travel or the last date of cancellation (i.e., the customer’s refund privileges lapse).

 

Cost of Revenue

 

Cost of revenue consists of cost of the tours and activities, commissions and merchant fees charged by credit card processors.

 

Selling and Promotions Expense

 

Selling and promotion expenses consist primarily of advertising and promotional expenses, expenses related to our participation in industry conferences, and public relations expenses.

 

 7 

 

 

 

Warrant Modifications

 

The Company treats a modification of the terms or conditions of an equity award in accordance with ASC Topic 718-20-35-3 by treating the modification as an exchange of the original award for a new award. In substance, the entity repurchases the original instrument by issuing a new instrument of equal or greater value, incurring additional compensation cost for any incremental value. Incremental compensation cost shall be measured as the excess, if any, of the fair value of the modified award determined in accordance with the provisions of this Topic over the fair value of the original award immediately before its terms are modified, measured based on the share price and other pertinent factors at that date.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company has adopted the provisions of ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements, which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in GAAP, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. ASC 820 does not require any new fair value measurements, but it does provide guidance on how to measure fair value by providing a fair value hierarchy used to classify the source of the information. The fair value hierarchy distinguishes between assumptions based on market data (observable inputs) and an entity’s own assumptions (unobservable inputs).

 

The hierarchy consists of three levels:

 

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

 

Level 2 - Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets of liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

The Company uses Level 3 inputs for its valuation methodology for the warrant derivative liabilities and embedded conversion option liabilities.

 

Financial instruments consist principally of cash, accounts receivable, prepaid expenses, notes receivable, net, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, notes payable, related parties, line of credit and certain other current liabilities. The carrying amounts of such financial instruments in the accompanying balance sheets approximate their fair values due to their relatively short-term nature. It is management’s opinion that the Company is not exposed to any significant currency or credit risks arising from these financial instruments.

 

Going Concern

 

As of November 30, 2020, and February 29, 2020, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $122,955,764 and $115,852,897, respectively. The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern.

 

We have very limited financial resources. We currently have a monthly cash requirement of approximately $525,000.

 

We will need to raise substantial additional capital to support the on-going operation and increased market penetration of our products including the development of national advertising relationships and increases in operating costs resulting from additional staff and office space until such time as we generate revenues sufficient to support current operations. We believe that in the aggregate, we could require several millions of dollars to support and expand the marketing and development of our travel products, repay debt obligations, provide capital expenditures for additional equipment and development costs, payment obligations, office space and systems for managing the business, and cover other operating costs until our planned revenue streams from travel products are fully implemented and begin to offset our operating costs. We anticipate obtaining a portion of such funds from HotPlay (defined below), pursuant to the terms of HotPlay Exchange Agreement (defined below), and in the event the HotPlay Exchange Agreement closes. Our failure to close the HotPlay Share Exchange or obtain additional capital to finance our working capital needs on acceptable terms, or at all, will negatively impact our business, financial condition and liquidity. As of November 30, 2020, we had $12,721,330 of current liabilities. We currently do not have the resources to satisfy these obligations, and our inability to do so could have a material adverse effect on our business and ability to continue as a going concern.

 

On July 23, 2020, we entered into (a) a Share Exchange Agreement with HotPlay Enterprise Limited (“HotPlay” and such share exchange agreement, as amended from time to time, the “HotPlay Exchange Agreement”) and the stockholders of HotPlay (the “HotPlay Stockholders” and the transactions contemplated by the HotPlay Exchange Agreement, the “HotPlay Share Exchange”); and (b) a Share Exchange Agreement with certain stockholders holding shares of Axion Ventures, Inc. (“Axion”, the “Axion Stockholders” and as amended and restated from time to time, the “Axion Exchange Agreement” and collectively with the HotPlay Exchange Agreement, the “Exchange Agreements”) and certain debt holders holding debt of Axion (the “Axion Creditors” and the transactions contemplated by the Axion Exchange Agreement, the “Axion Share Exchange”, and together with the HotPlay Share Exchange, the “Share Exchanges”).

 

Pursuant to the HotPlay Exchange Agreement, the HotPlay Stockholders have agreed to exchange 100% of the outstanding capital shares of HotPlay (making HotPlay a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company following the closing of the transactions contemplated therein) in consideration for 67.87% of the Company’s post-closing capitalization (defined below) (the “HotPlay percentage” and the “HotPlay shares”). The Company’s “post-closing capitalization” is equal to the total number of shares of common stock issued and outstanding following the completion of the HotPlay Exchange Agreement and Axion Preferred Conversion (defined below) and calculated by dividing the total number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding immediately prior to the closing of the HotPlay Exchange Agreement (the “Closing”), by 17.45%, and rounding such number up to the nearest whole share. The post-closing capitalization does not take into account options, warrants or other convertible securities of Monaker outstanding at the Closing.

 

 8 

 

 

Pursuant to the Axion Exchange Agreement, which closed on November 16, 2020, (a) the Axion Stockholders (including Cern One Limited (“Cern One”)), exchanged ordinary shares of Axion equal to 33.85% of the outstanding common shares of Axion, in consideration for 10,000,000 shares of newly designated shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company (the “Series B Preferred Stock”), which are automatically convertible into common shares of the Company upon the occurrence of certain events, including the approval of such issuances by the stockholders of the Company, into 14.68% of the post-closing capitalization (the “Axion percentage”), less the number of shares of the Company’s common stock issuable upon conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock (defined below) and the exercise of the Creditor Warrants (defined below); and (b) the Axion Creditors exchanged debt of Axion in the aggregate amount of $7,657,024 (the “Axion Debt”), for (i) 3,828,500 shares of newly designated shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company (the “Series C Preferred Stock”), which are automatically convertible into common shares of the Company upon the occurrence of certain events, including the approval of such issuances by the stockholders of the Company, on a one-for-one basis; and (ii) a warrant, granted to Cern One, to purchase 1,914,250 shares of the Company’s common at an exercise price of $2.00 (the “Creditor Warrants”), which is only exercisable upon the occurrence of certain events, including the approval of such issuance by the stockholders of the Company. The Creditor Warrants vest on the later of (a) the date the Series B Preferred Stock and Series C Preferred Stock convert into common stock and the earlier of (i) the date the Axion Debt is fully repaid by Axion or (ii) the date that the Company obtains 51% or more of the voting control of, and economic rights to, Axion, provided that such vesting date must occur before November 16, 2021, or the Creditor Warrants will terminate. The conversion of the Series B Preferred Stock and Series C Preferred Stock pursuant to their terms upon the closing of the HotPlay Share Exchange is defined herein as the “Axion Preferred Conversion”.

 

Also, on November 16, 2020, the Company acquired 100% of Longroot, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Longroot”), which in turn owned 57% of Longroot Limited, a Cayman Islands company (“Longroot Cayman”). Longroot Cayman owned 49% of the outstanding shares (100% of the ordinary shares) of Longroot Holding (Thailand) Company Limited (“Longroot Thailand”), provided that Longroot Cayman controls 90% of Longroot Thailand’s voting shares and therefore effectively controls Longroot Thailand.

 

The acquisition was made pursuant to the November 2, 2020 Stock Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”) entered into with Dr. Jason Morton (“Morton”), and for certain limited purposes set forth therein, Longroot. Pursuant to the SPA, the Company purchased, 100% of Longroot, in consideration for (a) $1,700,000 in cash; and (b) 200,000 shares of restricted common stock. A total of $100,000 was paid as a non-refundable deposit towards the purchase of Longroot on October 15, 2020, and a total of $700,000 was paid at the closing on November 16, 2020, along with the issuance of the shares. Additionally, prior to the closing, the Company advanced a separate $400,000 to Longroot which was used for working capital prior to closing which brought the purchase price to a total of $2.2 million. The remaining $900,000 owed to Morton pursuant to the terms of the SPA (the “Remaining Cash Payments”) is payable in three installments of $300,000 each, due on or prior to (i) December 16, 2020 (30 days after the closing), which amount has been paid in full; (ii) March 16, 2021 (120 days after the closing); and (iii) April 15, 2021 (150 days after the closing), of which $150,000 was paid on December 11, 2020. Pursuant to the SPA, Morton has the option to elect to receive any or all the Remaining Cash Payments in shares of common stock of the Company, with such number of shares issuable based on a Company stock price of $3.00 per share.

 

A total of 22.9% of Longroot Cayman is owned by True Axion Interactive Ltd., of which Axion holds a 60% interest. Monaker currently owns approximately 33.85% of Axion’s shares.

 

Longroot Thailand is an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) portal operator authorized and regulated under Thai Digital Asset Business Law and licensed by the Thai Securities and Exchange Commission. Longroot Thailand provides fully regulated and licensed digital assets financing, and investment services for digital assets. Monaker, as a majority stakeholder in Longroot Thailand, is planning to use the technology and digital asset capabilities to create cryptocurrencies regulated under Thai law, designed to allow consumers to invest in unique revenue streams in wholesale travel, real estate homes and hotels, gaming assets and digital advertising – as well as potential token and loyalty program opportunities complementary to Monaker’s gaming and travel businesses.

 

Our current plan is to close the transactions contemplated by the HotPlay Share Exchange. We currently operate in the travel and cryptocurrency industries. Upon the completion of the HotPlay Exchange Agreement, the Company plans to transition its operations to those of a travel, cryptocurrency, and an in-game advertising company. During the period until the Closing of the HotPlay Exchange Agreement, and in the event the HotPlay Exchange Agreement is not consummated, the Company intends to continue to actively operate in the travel and cryptocurrency industries.

 

Management’s plans with regard to this going concern are as follows: the Company plans to work towards closing the HotPlay share exchange, which is subject to certain closing conditions and other requirements, will continue to raise funds with third parties by way of public or private offerings (similar to the December 2020 underwritten offering discussed below under “Note 10 - Subsequent Events”) and seek to obtain advances from HotPlay pursuant to the HotPlay Convertible Notes, discussed below under “Note 5 – Line of Credit and Notes Payable — HotPlay Convertible Notes” the Company is working aggressively to increase the viewership of its products by promoting it across other mediums which the Company hopes will result in higher revenues. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to further implement its business plan and generate greater revenues. Management believes that the actions presently being taken to further implement its business plan and generate additional revenues provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.

Although we currently cannot predict the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our fourth quarter fiscal 2021 financial results relating to our operations, or for the year ended February 28, 2021, we anticipate a significant decrease in year-over-year revenue (similar to the decrease in quarter-over-quarter revenue we experienced during the quarters ended May 31, 2020, August 31, 2020 and November 30, 2020), which decreases we currently expect to continue into fiscal 2022 and possibly beyond. However, the ultimate extent of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on global travel and overall economic activity is unknown and impossible to predict currently.

 

Separately, our capital requirements may increase in the near term and long-term due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the resulting reduced demand for travel services, the increases in cancellations and re-bookings, and the extent to which such pandemic may further impact the ability of our customers to fulfill their payment obligations.

 

Practical Expedients and Exemptions

 

The Company does not disclose the value of unsatisfied performance obligations since its contracts generally have an original expected term of one year or less and the Company recognizes revenues at the amount to which it has the right to invoice for services performed.

 

The Company applies a practical expedient, as permitted within ASC 340, to expense as incurred the incremental costs to obtain a contract when the amortization period of the asset that would have otherwise been recognized is one year or less.

 

Leases

 

The Company utilizes operating leases for its offices. The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception. Right-of-use assets represent the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent the Company’s contractual obligation to make lease payments under the lease. Operating leases are included in operating lease right-to-use assets, non-current, and operating lease liabilities current and non-current captions in the consolidated balance sheets.

 

Operating lease right-to-use assets and liabilities are recognized on the commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Lease agreements may contain periods of free rent or reduced rent, predetermined fixed increases in the minimum rent and renewal or termination options, all impacting the determination of the lease term and lease payments to be used in calculating the lease liability. Lease cost is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company uses the implicit rate in the lease when determinable. As most of the Company’s leases do not have a determinable implicit rate, the Company uses a derived incremental borrowing rate based on borrowing options under its credit agreement. The Company applies a spread over treasury rates for the indicated term of the lease based on the information available on the commencement date of the lease.

 

Recent Accounting Policies Adopted

 

Leases. In February 2016, the FASB issued new guidance related to accounting and reporting guidelines for leasing arrangements [Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (the Update)]. The new guidance requires entities that lease assets to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet related to the rights and obligations created by those leases regardless of whether they are classified as finance or operating leases. Consistent with current guidance, the recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease primarily will depend on its classification as a finance or operating lease. The guidance also requires new disclosures to help financial statement users better understand the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. This guidance is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted and should be applied using a modified retrospective approach. We adopted this new guidance as of March 1, 2019.

 

The key difference between the previous guidance and the Update is the recognition of a right-to-use asset and lease liability on the statement of financial position for those leases previously classified as operating leases under the old guidance. Implementation of the Update will primarily impact the statement of financial position. It does not include provisions that would significantly impact the statements of operations or cash flows.

 

The Company’s leases are classified as operating leases. Therefore, the operating right-to-use asset and operating lease liability were recorded on the balance sheet. There is no impact to retained earnings upon adoption. Our monthly rent payment is recorded as an expense on the straight-line basis on the statement of operations.

 

Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. In June 2016, the FASB issued new guidance on the measurement of credit losses for financial assets measured at amortized cost, which includes accounts receivable, and available-for-sale debt securities. The new guidance replaces the existing incurred loss impairment model with an expected loss methodology, which will result in more timely recognition of credit losses. This update is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those annual periods. Early adoption is permitted for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those annual periods. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

 

In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standard Update No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (ASU 2019-12), which simplifies the accounting for income taxes. This guidance will be effective for entities for the fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020 on a prospective basis, with early adoption permitted. We will adopt the new standard effective March 1, 2021 and do not expect the adoption of this guidance to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In January 2020, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2020-01, Investments—Equity Securities (Topic 321), Investments—Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323), and Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815) (ASU 2020-01), which clarifies the interaction of the accounting for equity securities under Topic 321, the accounting for equity method investments in Topic 323, and the accounting for certain forward contracts and purchased options in Topic 815. This guidance will be effective for entities for the fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020 on a prospective basis, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of the new guidance.

The Bettwork Note bears interest at 12% per year and matured on February 28, 2019. All interest and the principal balance are due and payable on the maturity date. The Bettwork Note includes a “Default Rate” of eighteen percent (18.0%) per annum and is secured by all of the outstanding preferred stock shares held by the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Bettwork (which provide for super-majority voting rights) and Bettwork is precluded from issuing additional shares of common stock or preferred stock without consent from Monaker. In November 2018, a payment of $40,000 was received and the outstanding principal balance of the Bettwork Note as of November 30, 2020 and February 29, 2020 is $190,000 and $190,000, respectively.

The Note Amendment also included a beneficial ownership limit, prohibiting Monaker from converting the Bettwork Note, if doing so would result in Monaker (together with its affiliates and/or any persons acting as a group together with Monaker) beneficially owning more than 19.99% of Bettwork’s outstanding common stock after giving effect to such conversion, provided that, at the election of Monaker and with at least 61 days’ written notice to Bettwork, such beneficial ownership limitation may be decreased (but not increased) to whatever percentage Monaker may determine. The Bettwork Note had a balance of $190,000 at the time of the parties’ entry into the Note Amendment. Interest and principal had been paid through the date of the original maturity (in the amount of $40,000 of principal and $9,255 of interest as of February 28, 2019) and this Note Amendment is an extension to pay the principal, under the same terms and conditions as the Bettwork Note.

 

On October 10, 2019, and effective on August 31, 2019, we and Bettwork entered into the Second Amendment to Amended Promissory Note to extend the maturity date thereof from August 31, 2019 to February 29, 2020.

Conversion of $1,600,000 Promissory Note Into 2,133,333 Common Stock Shares of Bettwork Industries Inc.

 

On November 21, 2017, we entered into a Purchase Agreement and an addendum thereto (the “Purchase Addendum”) with A-Tech LLC (“A-Tech”) on behalf of its wholly-owned subsidiary Parula Village Ltd. (“Parula”) whereby we purchased from A-Tech, through Parula, ownership of 12 parcels of land on Long Caye, Lighthouse Reef, Belize (the “Property”) for 240,000 shares of restricted common stock valued at a total of $1,500,000. As part of the same consideration, A-Tech agreed to construct 12 vacation rental residences on the Property within 270 days of closing of the transaction (the “Construction Obligation”); and the agreement provided that if the vacation rental residences were not completed within the 270 days, Monaker would cancel 12,000 shares, valued at $75,000 (of the previously issued 240,000 shares of restricted common stock) for each residence not completed. Additionally, in the event the average closing price of Monaker’s common stock for the 10 trading days prior to the 90th day after the closing of the transaction was less than $6.25 per share, Monaker was required to issue additional shares of restricted common stock such that the value of the shares issued to A-Tech totaled $1.5 million. On February 20, 2018 (the first business day following the 90th day after the closing), Monaker issued an additional 66,632 shares of common stock valued at $4.80 per share, for a total of $319,834, to meet the 90-day look-back provision for a guaranteed purchase price of $1.5 million. Bettwork and A-Tech share a common principal.

On May 31, 2018, Monaker and Bettwork entered into an agreement whereby Bettwork acquired the ‘right to own’ the Property from the Company in consideration for a Secured Convertible Promissory Note in the amount of $1.6 million (the “Secured Note”). The amount owed under the Secured Note accrues interest at a fluctuating interest rate, based on the prime rate, and is due and payable on May 31, 2020. The repayment of the Secured Note is secured by a first priority security interest in the ‘right to own’ and after the exercise thereof, the Property. Bettwork may prepay the Secured Note at any time, subject to its obligation to provide the Company 15 days prior written notice prior to any prepayment. The Secured Note was convertible into shares of Bettwork’s common stock, at our option, subject to a 9.99% beneficial ownership limitation. The conversion price of the Secured Note was $1.00 per share, unless, prior to the Secured Note being paid in full, Bettwork completed a capital raise or acquisition and issued common stock or common stock equivalents (including, but not limited to convertible securities) with a price per share (as determined in our reasonable discretion) less than the Conversion Price then in effect (each a “Transaction”), at which time the Conversion Price was to be adjusted to match such lower pricing structure associated with the Transaction (provided such repricing shall continue to apply to subsequent Transactions which occur prior to the Secured Note being paid in full as well). On July 2, 2018, this promissory note was exchanged for 2,133,333 shares of Bettwork’s common stock at $0.75 per share. The outstanding principal balance of the Secured Note as of November 30, and February 29, 2020 is $0. A deferred gain liability of $1.6 million had been reserved against the Secured Note on May 31, 2018.

Note 3 – Investment in Unconsolidated Affiliates

 

We assess the potential impairment of our equity method investments when indicators such as a history of operating losses, negative earnings and cash flow outlook, and the financial condition and prospects for the investee’s business segment might indicate a loss in value.

 

Verus International, Inc and NestBuilder.com Corp (OTCMKTS: VRUS)

 

We have recognized an impairment loss on investment in unconsolidated affiliate. As of November 30, 2020, and February 29, 2020, Monaker owned 16,345,101 shares of Verus International, Inc. (formerly known as RealBiz Media Group, Inc. (“Verus”)) Series A Preferred Stock. This interest was written down to zero ($0) as of February 28, 2015.

 

On December 22, 2017, we entered into a Settlement Agreement with Verus, NestBuilder.com Corp. (“Nestbuilder”) and American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC (“AST”) relating to the dismissal with prejudice of certain pending lawsuits with Verus, including Case No.: 1:16-cv-24978- DLG in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. As part of the Settlement Agreement, Monaker agreed to pay Nestbuilder $100,000 and to issue 20,000 shares of Monaker’s restricted common stock to person(s) to be designated by Nestbuilder; Verus reinstated to Monaker 44,470,101 shares of Verus Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and ratified all rights under the Certificate of Designation as reformed and amended (to provide for a conversion ratio of 1 share of Verus common stock for each 1 share of Verus Series A preferred stock converted) and remove any dividend obligations. The Verus designation was also amended to provide us with anti-dilution protection below $0.05 per share. Also, as part of the Settlement Agreement, Monaker received 49,411 shares of common stock of Nestbuilder. The agreement further provided for each party to dismiss the above referenced lawsuits with prejudice and for general releases from each party.

 

On April 10, 2019 and effective on February 8, 2019, we entered into an Inducement Agreement with Verus. Pursuant to the Inducement Agreement, we agreed to amend the designation of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock of Verus (the “Series A Preferred Stock”)(of which we held 44,470,101 shares of Series A Preferred Stock as of the date of our entry into the Inducement Agreement, which converts into common stock of Verus, and votes on all stockholder matters, on a one-for-one basis, subject to the Ownership Blocker (discussed below)), to remove certain anti-dilution rights described therein; and Verus agreed to issue us 152,029,899 shares of its common stock (valued at approximately $2.2 million, based on a then current trading price of Verus’ common stock of approximately $0.015 per share), following Verus’ planned increase in authorized shares of common stock, pursuant to the anti-dilution rights of that certain Settlement Agreement by and among the Company, Verus, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC and NestBuilder.com Corp. executed on or about December 22, 2017, as previously disclosed. The designation of the Series A Preferred Stock, as amended, includes a 9.99% beneficial ownership limitation, preventing the Company from converting such Series A Preferred Stock into common stock of Verus (and reducing the voting rights of such preferred stock proportionally), if upon such conversion, the Company, its affiliates and/or any group which it is a part of, would own greater than 9.99% of Verus’ common stock (the “Ownership Blocker”).

 

On April 16, 2019, Verus filed a Certificate of Amendment (the “Amendment”) to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, to increase its authorized common stock from 1,500,000,000 shares to 7,500,000,000 shares and to decrease the par value of its common stock and preferred stock from $0.001 per share to $0.000001 per share. On April 23, 2019, Verus issued us the 152,029,899 shares of common stock.

 

Since the issuance date of such common stock, the Company has sold and transferred various shares of common stock of Verus.

6,142,856 shares of Bettwork Industries Inc. Common Stock (formerly OTC Pink: BETW)

 

On July 2, 2018, three Secured Convertible Promissory Notes aggregating $5,250,000 (as described in “Note 2 – Note Receivable”), evidencing amounts we were owed by Bettwork, were exchanged for 7,000,000 shares of Bettwork’s common stock at $0.75 per share for a fair value of $5,250,000 as of July 2, 2018.

The purchase price for the Bettwork shares was determined by the Board of Directors of the Company, based on among other things, the then recent trading prices of Bettwork’s common stock on the OTC Pink Market, as publicly reported. As additional consideration for entering into the Stock Purchase Agreements, the Company granted each of the Purchasers an option to acquire an additional 1,000,000 shares of restricted common stock of Bettwork for $700,000 ($0.70 per share), which option is exercisable by the applicable Purchaser at any time prior to the twenty-four (24) month anniversary of the closing date of the applicable Stock Purchase Agreement (which options expired unexercised). The allocation of the original acquisition price to the shares purchased by the Monaco Trust resulted in a realized loss on the sale of marketable securities of $21,429. The allocation of the original acquisition price to the shares purchased by Charcoal resulted in a realized loss on the sale of marketable securities of $21,429.

Purchase of Longroot, Inc.

 

As described in greater detail in “Note 1 – Summary of Business Operations and Significant Accounting Policies”, under “Going Concern”, on November 16, 2020, the Company acquired 100% of Longroot, which in turn owned 57% of Longroot Cayman. Longroot Cayman owned 49% of the outstanding shares (100% of the ordinary shares) of Longroot Thailand, provided that Longroot Cayman controls 90% of Longroot Thailand’s voting shares and therefore effectively controls Longroot Thailand.

 

The acquisition was made pursuant to the November 2, 2020 SPA entered into with Dr. Jason Morton, and for certain limited purposes set forth therein, Longroot. Pursuant to the SPA, the Company purchased, 100% of Longroot, in consideration for (a) $1,700,000 in cash; and (b) 200,000 shares of restricted common stock. A total of $100,000 was paid as a non-refundable deposit towards the purchase of Longroot on October 15, 2020, and a total of $700,000 was paid at the closing on November 16, 2020, along with the issuance of the shares. Additionally, prior to the closing, the Company advanced a separate $400,000 to Longroot which was used for working capital prior to closing which brought the purchase price to a total of $2.2 million. The remaining $900,000 owed to Morton pursuant to the terms of the SPA is payable in three installments of $300,000 each, due on or prior to (i) December 16, 2020 (30 days after the closing), which amount has been paid in full; (ii) March 16, 2021 (120 days after the closing); and (iii) April 15, 2021 (150 days after the closing), of which $150,000 has previously been paid as discussed below. Pursuant to the SPA, Morton has the option to elect to receive any or all the Remaining Cash Payments in shares of common stock of the Company, with such number of shares issuable based on a Company stock price of $3.00 per share.

 

In order to exercise such right, Morton must provide the Company notice no later than 5 days prior to the applicable due date of such applicable Remaining Cash Payment(s). In the event we fail to pay any of the Remaining Cash Payments when due, the amount not timely paid will bear interest at the rate of 7% per annum, until paid in full.

 

Pursuant to the SPA, Morton agreed not to compete for a period of two years following the closing date, in connection with the operation of an initial coin offering portal in Thailand, subject to customary exceptions. The SPA also contains an indemnification obligation whereby the Company agreed to indemnify and hold Morton harmless against any claims made by Axion Ventures, Inc. or any of its shareholders, directors, officers, agents or representatives against Morton in connection with the SPA or the Company’s purchase of Longroot.

 

The Company hopes that the access to Longroot Limited’s technology and digital asset capabilities will enable the Company to offer new financing mechanisms and participation options, including in wholesale travel, gaming, and digital advertising.

 

In accordance with ASC 805, as described in “Note 1 – Summary of Business Operations and Significant Accounting Policies”, the Company has accounted for this business combination utilizing the following values in connection with the purchase of Longroot, Inc.: total consideration to selling shareholder of $2,528,000 and fair value of net assets acquired of $233,357 and an intangible asset (including license) of $2,294,643. The business combination accounting is provisionally complete for all assets and liabilities acquired on the acquisition date.

 

Note 5 – Line of Credit and Notes Payable

 

The National Bank of Commerce (FKA: Republic Bank) Line of Credit

 

On June 15, 2016, we entered into a revolving line of credit agreement with Republic Bank, Inc. of Duluth, Minnesota (“Republic”), in the maximum amount of $1,000,000. Amounts borrowed under the line of credit accrue interest at the Wall Street Journal U.S. Prime Rate plus 1% (updated daily until maturity), payable monthly in arrears beginning on July 15, 2016. Any amounts borrowed under the line of credit are originally due on June 15, 2017; however, on June 12, 2017, the line of credit was extended for 90 days through September 13, 2017. On December 22, 2016, the revolving line of credit was increased to $1,200,000; all other terms of the revolving line of credit remained unchanged. On September 15, 2017, we entered into a replacement revolving line of credit agreement with Republic, which replaced and superseded the prior line of credit with Republic. The replacement revolving line of credit extended the due date of the Line of Credit to September 15, 2018. On September 15, 2018, we entered into another replacement revolving line of credit agreement with Republic, which replaced and superseded the prior line of credit with Republic and extended the due date of the Line of Credit to September 15, 2019.

 

On September 16, 2019, the Company entered into a commercial debt modification agreement with Republic to extend the maturity date of the line of credit to December 15, 2019. On December 6, 2019, the Company entered into another commercial debt modification agreement with National Bank of Commerce (which merged with Republic)(“National Bank”) to extend the maturity date of the line of credit to June 30, 2020. The line of credit, as amended and extended, provides that amounts borrowed under the line of credit accrue interest at the Wall Street Journal U.S. Prime Rate plus 1% (updated daily until maturity), payable monthly in arrears beginning on September 28, 2018.

 

On May 7, 2020, the Company entered into a new Promissory Note with National Bank (the “New Note”). The Note replaced the prior promissory note we had in place with National Bank and extended the due date of the prior note from June 30, 2020 to December 31, 2020. The New Note also amended the interest rate of the prior note to provide that amounts due under the New Note accrue interest at the rate of prime plus 3% (which rate is currently 6.25%)(the interest rate of the prior note was prime plus 1%), subject to a floor of 4.5%. The New Note may be prepaid at any time without penalty. The New Note contains standard and customary events of default.

As of November 30, 2020, the principal balance of the note payable was $1,192,716.

 

Interest expense charged to operations relating to this line of credit was $52,595 and $107,715 for the nine months ended November 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The Company has accrued interest as of November 30, 2020 and 2019 of $-0- and $-0-, respectively.

 

As discussed in greater detail below under “Note 10 – Subsequent Events”, the line of credit was repaid in full on December 1, 2020.

 

Note Purchase Agreement: Iliad Research and Trading, L.P.

 

On April 3, 2020, the Company entered into a Note Purchase Agreement (the “Note Purchase Agreement”) with Iliad Research and Trading, L.P. (“Iliad”), pursuant to which the Company sold the Lender a Secured Promissory Note in the original principal amount of $895,000 (the “Iliad Note”). Iliad paid consideration of $800,000 for the Iliad Note, which included an original issue discount of $80,000 and reimbursement of Iliad’s transaction expenses of $15,000.

 

The Iliad Note bears interest at a rate of 10% per annum and matures 12 months after its issuance date (i.e., on April 3, 2021). From time to time, beginning six months after issuance, Iliad may redeem a portion of the Iliad Note, not to exceed an amount of $200,000 per month. In the event we do not pay the amount of any requested redemption within three trading days, an amount equal to 25% of such redemption amount is added to the outstanding balance of the Iliad Note. Under certain circumstances the Company may defer the redemption payments up to three times, for a duration of 30 days each, provided that upon each such deferral the outstanding balance of the Iliad Note is increased by 2%. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Iliad Note, the Company may prepay all or any portion of the outstanding balance of the Iliad Note at any time subject to a prepayment penalty equal to 15% of the amount of the outstanding balance to be prepaid. For so long as the Iliad Note remains outstanding, the Company has agreed to pay to Iliad 20% of the gross proceeds that the Company receives from the sale of any of its common stock or preferred stock, which payments will be applied towards and will reduce the outstanding balance of the Iliad Note, which percentage increases to 30% upon the occurrence of, and continuance of, an event of default under the Iliad Note (each an “Equity Payment”). Each time that we fail to pay an Equity Payment, the outstanding balance of the Iliad Note automatically increases by 10%. Additionally, in the event we fail to timely pay any such Equity Payment, Iliad may seek an injunction which would prevent us from issuing common or preferred stock until or unless we pay such Equity Payment.

 

Pursuant to the Iliad Note, we provided Iliad a right of first refusal to purchase any promissory note, debenture or other debt instrument which we propose to sell, other than sales to officers or directors of the Company and/or sales to the government. Each time, if ever, that we provide Iliad such right, and Iliad does not exercise such right to provide such funding, the outstanding balance of the Iliad Note increases by 3%. Each time, if ever, that we fail to comply with the terms of the right of first refusal, the outstanding balance of the Iliad Note increases by 10%. Additionally, upon each major default described in the Iliad Note (i.e., the failure to pay amounts under the Iliad Note when due or to observe any covenant under the Note Purchase Agreement (other than the requirement to make Equity Payments)) the outstanding balance of the Iliad Note automatically increases by 15%, and for each other default, the outstanding balance of the Iliad Note automatically increases by 5%, provided such increase can only occur three times each as to major defaults and minor defaults, and that such aggregate increase cannot exceed 30% of the balance of the Iliad Note immediately prior to the first event of default.

 

In connection with the Note Purchase Agreement and the Iliad Note, the Company has entered into a Security Agreement with Iliad (the “Security Agreement”), pursuant to which the obligations of the Company are secured by substantially all of the assets of the Company, subject to the priority lien and security interest of National Bank (as defined above) which secures amounts due under its $1.2 million line of credit.

 

On July 30, 2020, we made a prepayment of $347,826 towards the Iliad Note.

 

On October 6, 2020 and November 4, 2020, we received and paid redemption notices of $200,000 each or $400,000 in total which reduced the principal balance. As of November 30, 2020, the outstanding principal amount of the Iliad Note is $147,174 and the accrued interest is $45,283.

 

As discussed in greater detail below under “Note 10 – Subsequent Events”, the outstanding balance of the Iliad Note was repaid in full on December 1, 2020.

 

Note Purchase Agreement: Streeterville Capital, LLC

 

On November 23, 2020, the Company entered into a Note Purchase Agreement (the “Note Purchase Agreement”) with Streeterville Capital, LLC (“Streeterville”), pursuant to which the Company sold the Lender a Secured Promissory Note in the original principal amount of $5,520,000 (the “Streeterville Note”). Streeterville paid consideration of an initial cash purchase price of $3,500,000 for the note, and issued the Company a promissory note in the amount of $1,500,000 (the “Investor Note”). Subsequent to the $245,000 deduction of advisory fees paid to Ascendiant Capital Markets, LLC, the Company received net proceeds of $3,255,000.

 

The Streeterville Note bears interest at a rate of 10% per annum and matures 12 months after the Purchase Price Date (i.e., on November 23, 2021). From time to time, beginning six months after issuance, Streeterville may redeem a portion of the Streeterville Note, not to exceed the “Maximum Monthly Redemption Amount” as described in the note. In the event we do not pay the amount of any requested redemption within three trading days, an amount equal to 25% of such redemption amount is added to the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note. Under certain circumstances the Company may defer the redemption payments up to three times, for a duration of 30 days each, provided that upon each such deferral the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note is increased by 2%. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Streeterville Note, the Company may prepay all or any portion of the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note at any time subject to a prepayment penalty equal to 10% of the amount of the outstanding balance to be prepaid. For so long as the Streeterville Note remains outstanding, the Company has agreed to pay to Streeterville 20% of the gross proceeds that the Company receives from the sale of any of its common stock or preferred stock, which payments will be applied towards and will reduce the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note, which percentage increases to 30% upon the occurrence of, and continuance of, an event of default under the Streeterville Note (each an “Equity Payment”). Each time that we fail to pay an Equity Payment, the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note automatically increases by 10%. Additionally, in the event we fail to timely pay any such Equity Payment, Streeterville may seek an injunction which would prevent us from issuing common or preferred stock until or unless we pay such Equity Payment.

 

 16 

 

 

Pursuant to the Streeterville Note, we provided Streeterville a right of first refusal to purchase any promissory note, debenture or other debt instrument which we propose to sell, other than sales to officers or directors of the Company and/or sales to the government. Each time, if ever, that we provide Streeterville such right, and Streeterville does not exercise such right to provide such funding, the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note increases by 3%. Each time, if ever, that we fail to comply with the terms of the right of first refusal, the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note increases by 10%. Additionally, upon each major default described in the Streeterville Note (i.e., the failure to pay amounts under the Streeterville Note when due or to observe any covenant under the Note Purchase Agreement (other than the requirement to make Equity Payments)) the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note automatically increases by 15%, and for each other default, the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note automatically increases by 5%, provided such increase can only occur three times each as to major defaults and minor defaults, and that such aggregate increase cannot exceed 30% of the balance of the Streeterville Note immediately prior to the first event of default.

 

In connection with the Note Purchase Agreement and the Streeterville Note, the Company has entered into a Security Agreement with Streeterville (the “Security Agreement”), pursuant to which the obligations of the Company are secured by substantially all the assets of the Company, subject to a priority lien and security interest in the collateral of the Company.

 

The Investor Note, in the principal amount of $1,500,000, evidences the amount payable by Streeterville to the Company as partial consideration for the acquisition of the Streeterville Note. The Investor Note accrues interest at the rate of 10% per annum, payable in full on November 23, 2021, subject to a 30-day extension exercisable at the option of Streeterville and may be prepaid at any time. Streeterville may, in its sole discretion, designate collateral as security for its obligations under the Investor Note, provided that currently there is no collateral evidencing the repayment of such note. In the event (i) of the occurrence of any event of default under the Streeterville Note, (ii) of a breach of any material term, condition, representation, warranty, covenant or obligation of the Company under any agreement entered into with Streeterville along with the Note Purchase Agreement, or (iii) if the Company sells, transfers, assigns, pledges or hypothecates the Investor Note, or attempts to do any of the foregoing, Streeterville is entitled to deduct and offset any amount owing by the Company under the Streeterville Note from any amount owed by Streeterville under the Investor Note (provided that such amount is automatically offset if Streeterville has not exercised its offset right within 30 days prior to the maturity date of the Investor Note). The Investor Note includes customary events of default, subject to cure rights where applicable. The amount of the Investor Note has been offset against the amount of the Streeterville Note in the balance sheet as of November 30, 2020, as both notes have substantially similar terms, and the Investor Note was provided in consideration for the acquisition of a portion of the Streeterville Note.

 

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan

 

On May 8, 2020, the Company obtained a $176,534 loan (the “Loan”) from The Commercial Bank (the “Lender”), pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under the “CARES Act”. The Loan is evidenced by a promissory note (the “PPP Note”), dated effective May 8, 2020, issued by the Company to the Lender. The Note is unsecured with a 2-year term, matures on May 8, 2022, and bears interest at a rate of 1.00% per annum, payable monthly commencing on November 8, 2020, following an initial deferral period as specified under the PPP. The PPP Note may be prepaid at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties. Proceeds from the Loan will be available to the Company to fund designated expenses, including certain payroll costs, rent, utilities and other permitted expenses, in accordance with the PPP. Under the terms of the PPP, up to the entire amount of principal and accrued interest may be forgiven to the extent Loan proceeds are used for qualifying expenses as described in the CARES Act and applicable implementing guidance issued by the U.S. Small Business Administration under the PPP (including that at least 60% of such Loan funds are used for payroll). The Company intends to use the entire Loan amount for designated qualifying expenses and to apply for forgiveness of the respective Loan in accordance with the terms of the PPP. No assurance can be given that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the Loan in whole or in part. With respect to any portion of the Loan that is not forgiven, the Loan will be subject to customary provisions for a loan of this type, including customary events of default relating to, among other things, payment defaults, breaches of the provisions of the PPP Note and cross-defaults.

 

On August 14, 2020, the Company submitted the loan forgiveness application to Commercial Bank for the entire amount of $176,534. The accrued interest was $561 as of August 31, 2020.

 

On November 10, 2020, the Company received notification from The Commercial Bank that the entire loan balance was forgiven. The principal was recorded as other income and the accrued interest was reversed.

 

HotPlay Convertible Notes

 

On September 1, 2020, September 18, 2020, September 30, 2020, on or around November 2, 2020, and on November 24, 2020, HotPlay advanced Monaker $300,000, $700,000, $1,000,000, $400,000, $100,000, respectively, under the terms of the HotPlay Exchange Agreement. The advances were evidenced by convertible promissory notes (“HotPlay Convertible Notes”) in the amount of each advance, and an effective date as of the date of each advance. The HotPlay Convertible Notes totaled $2.5 million as of November 30, 2020.

 

The advances, and the entry into the HotPlay Convertible Notes, were required conditions to the HotPlay Exchange Agreement, pursuant to which HotPlay was required to loan us $1,000,000 on or before August 31, 2020 (provided that Monaker waived such delay in providing such initial $1,000,000 of HotPlay advances) and is required to loan us an additional $1,000,000 (each a “Subsequent Loan”, and such loans, the “HotPlay Loans”), on September 30, 2020, and on the 15th day of each calendar month thereafter (each a “Required Lending Date”), through the date of closing of the HotPlay Exchange Agreement (provided that Monaker has waived any delay in timely providing such amounts to date).

 

The HotPlay Notes are automatically forgiven by HotPlay in the event the HotPlay Exchange Agreement is terminated (a) by written agreement of the parties thereto; (b) by HotPlay (and its stockholders) or the Company, if the closing has not occurred on or before the required date set forth in the HotPlay Exchange Agreement (currently February 28, 2021), unless the failure of the closing to have occurred is attributable to a failure on the part of the terminating party; (c) by the Company, if there is a material adverse effect on HotPlay or any schedule delivered by HotPlay is found to be materially misleading or conflict with any prior written or oral statement delivered to the Company; or (d) by the Company, if any representations or warranties made by HotPlay or its stockholders in the HotPlay Exchange Agreement are found to be materially inaccurate or any covenants are breached.

 

 17 

 

 

Alternately, if the HotPlay Exchange Agreement is terminated (a) by HotPlay or its principal stockholder (as applicable) because a governmental authority of competent jurisdiction issues a final non-appealable order, or takes any other action having the effect of, permanently restraining, enjoining, or otherwise prohibiting the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the HotPlay Exchange Agreement (a “Government Action”); (b) by HotPlay if any event occurs that makes it impossible to satisfy a condition precedent to the HotPlay Exchange Agreement; (c) by HotPlay if there is a material adverse effect on the Company; or (d) by HotPlay if any representations or warranties made by the Company in the HotPlay Exchange Agreement are found to be materially inaccurate or any covenant of the Company is breached; or by the Company in connection with a Government Action or any event occurs that makes it impossible to satisfy a condition precedent to the HotPlay Exchange Agreement (except as discussed above in connection with events which result in the automatic forgiveness of the HotPlay Notes), then the outstanding principal amount of the HotPlay Notes together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, automatically convert into fully paid and nonassessable shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $2.00 per share.

 

In the event the transactions contemplated by the Share Exchange close, it is anticipated that the HotPlay Notes will be forgiven as intracompany loans.

 

If the Company fails to deliver the shares due upon a conversion within five business days, or the Company enters into a voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy proceeding, then HotPlay can declare the entire amount of the notes due and payable (provided the notes are automatically due upon the occurrence of certain bankruptcy events), and such note will accrue interest at the rate of 18% per annum until paid in full.

Preferred stock

 

The aggregate number of shares of preferred stock that the Company is authorized to issue is up to One Hundred Million (100,000,000), with a par value of $0.00001 per share (the “Preferred Stock”) with the exception of Series A Preferred Stock shares having a $0.01 par value per share. The Preferred Stock may be divided into and issued in series. The Board of Directors of the Company is authorized to divide the authorized shares of Preferred Stock into one or more series, each of which shall be so designated as to distinguish the shares thereof from the shares of all other series and classes. The Board of Directors of the Company is authorized, within any limitations prescribed by law and the articles of incorporation, to fix and determine the designations, rights, qualifications, preferences, limitations and terms of the shares of any series of Preferred Stock.

 

Series A Preferred Stock

 

The Company has authorized and designated 3,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock as Series A 10% Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Series A Preferred Stock”).

Common Stock Warrants

 

On July 31, 2017, the Company issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 613,000 shares of common stock in connection with a private placement offering of 613,000 shares of common stock and warrants. The warrants were exercisable immediately at $5.25 per share and expire on July 30, 2022. These warrants contain a subsequent equity sale reset “down round”, which provides that if the Company sells or grants any option to purchase any common stock of the Company at any effective price per share less than the exercise price of the warrants, the exercise price shall be reduced to equal that lower exercise price.

 

During January 2018, the Company entered into a First Amendment To Warrant (“Amendment”) agreement with Pacific Grove Capital LP (“Pacific Grove”) which amended the warrants then held by Pacific Grove (acquired on July 31, 2017). This amendment led to a reduction in the exercise price of the warrants to purchase 350,000 shares of common stock held by Pacific Grove from $5.25 per share to $2.625 per share. This exercise price reduction was to incentivize the exercise of these warrants and to raise cash.

 

Additionally, as a result of the reduction in the exercise price of the Pacific Grove warrants which was agreed to pursuant to the Amendment, the anti-dilution provisions of the purchase agreement entered into with the purchasers pursuant to the July 31, 2017 purchases were triggered. Specifically, because the Company issued shares of common stock below (a) the $5.00 price per share of the securities sold pursuant to the purchase agreement, the purchasers were due an additional 14,458 shares of the Company’s common stock; and (b) the $5.25 exercise price of the warrants sold pursuant to the purchase agreement (and the warrants granted to the placement agent), automatically decreased to $5.125 per share.

 

Additionally, as a result of the reduction in the exercise price of the Stadlin warrants which was agreed to pursuant to the amendment, the anti-dilution provisions of the purchase agreement and the purchasers’ warrants granted in connection therewith was triggered. Specifically, because the Company issued shares of common stock below (a) the $5.00 price per share of the securities sold pursuant to the purchase agreement, the purchasers were due an additional 1,220 shares of the Company’s common stock; and (b) the $5.125 exercise price of the warrants sold pursuant to the purchase agreement (and the warrants granted to the placement agent), the exercise price of such warrants remained unchanged at $5.125 per share.

 

At first, the warrants were accounted for as part of Company equity since the warrants were considered indexed to the Company’s own stock. However, under ASC 815, the “down round” protection can sever the indexing to the Company’s own stock and the warrants could be accounted for as derivative liabilities at the time the reset was triggered, which is how the Company accounted for such warrants, and the change in fair value resulting from the reset of $26,060 was recognized as change in fair value of derivative liabilities.

 

In July 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-11, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260) Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480) Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815):

 

I.         Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Down Round Features, II. Replacement of the Indefinite Deferral for Mandatorily Redeemable Financial Instruments of Certain Nonpublic Entities and Certain Mandatorily Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests with a Scope Exception. ASU 2017-11 intends to reduce the complexity associated with the issuer’s accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity. Specifically, the Board determined that a down round feature (as defined) would no longer cause a freestanding equity-linked financial instrument (or an embedded conversion option) to be accounted for as a derivative liability at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in current earnings and is effective in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. The Company adopted the new standard during 2017, preventing the need to account for the Company to account for the outstanding warrants that contain down round features as derivative instruments.

 

 22 

 

 

As a result of the Company’s April 2019 underwritten offering, the exercise price of the then outstanding warrants to purchase 724,000 shares of common stock granted as part of the Company’s October 2, 2018 registered offering was automatically adjusted from $2.85 per share to $2.00 per share.

 

On November 16, 2020, in connection with the closing of the Axion Share Exchange Agreement, the Company granted Cern One, a warrant to purchase 1,914,250 shares of the Company’s common at an exercise price of $2.00 per share (the “Creditor Warrants”), which is only exercisable upon the occurrence of certain events, including the approval of such issuance by the stockholders of the Company. The Creditor Warrants vest on the later of (a) the date the Series B Preferred Stock and Series C Preferred Stock convert into common stock and the earlier of (i) the date the Axion Debt is fully repaid by Axion or (ii) the date that the Company obtains 51% or more of the voting control of, and economic rights to, Axion (the “Vesting Date”), provided that such Vesting Date must occur before November 16, 2021, or the Creditor Warrants will terminate. The Creditor Warrants have a term ending on the second anniversary of the Vesting Date.

 

The following table sets forth common stock purchase warrants outstanding as of November 30, 2020 and February 29, 2020, and changes in such warrants outstanding for the nine months ended November 30, 2020:

Note 8 – Commitments and Contingencies

 

Our executive, administrative and operating offices are primarily located in Weston, Florida where we leased approximately 2,500 square feet of office space at 2690 Weston Road, Suite 200, Weston, Florida 33331. In accordance with the terms of the office space lease agreement, the Company was renting the commercial office space, for a term of three years from January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2018. Monthly rental costs for calendar years 2017, 2018 and 2019 were $6,695, $6,896 and $6,243, respectively per month.

 

The office lease described above terminated early on March 31, 2018, at the request of the landlord, without penalties to the Company. The Company entered into a new contract for new office space encompassing approximately 2,500 square feet at 2893 Executive Park Drive Suite 201, Weston, Florida 33331. The lease has a term of three years from April 15, 2018 through April 14, 2021. Monthly rental costs for the periods ending April 14, 2019, 2020 and 2021 are $6,243, $6,492 and $6,781, respectively.

 

On October 1, 2019, the Company entered into a new contract for a new call center, approximately 4,048 square feet, at 6345 South Pecos Road, Suites 206, 207, and 208, Las Vegas, Nevada 89120.

The rent also includes the monthly payment of the operating expenses (Tenant’s Proportionate Share of the Building and/or Project) which costs approximately $1,100 per month. We did not renew this lease.

 

The rent for the quarters ended November 30, 2020, August 31, 2020 and May 31, 2020 was $16,855, $33,628 and $19,447, respectively. The Company recorded operating lease Right-to-Use asset of $15,843 along with current operating lease liability of $16,362 and long-term operating lease liability of $0 as of November 30, 2020.

The Company is committed to pay three to six months’ severance in the case of termination or death to certain key officers, and up to 12 months upon a termination in connection with a change in control in some cases.

 

Legal Matters

 

The Company is involved, from time to time, in litigation, other legal claims and proceedings involving matters associated with or incidental to our business, including, among other things, matters involving breach of contract claims, intellectual property, employment issues, and other related claims and vendor matters. The Company believes that the resolution of currently pending matters will not individually or in the aggregate have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations. However, assessment of the current litigation or other legal claims could change in light of the discovery of facts not presently known to the Company or by judges, juries or other finders of fact, which are not in accord with management’s evaluation of the possible liability or outcome of such litigation or claims.

 

On March 28, 2016, the Company was presented with a Demand for Arbitration, pursuant to Rule 4(a) of the American Arbitration Association Commercial Rules of Arbitration, whereby Acknew Investments, Inc. and Vice Regal Developments Inc. (Claimants) are arguing that $700,000 is due to them, even though they have already been paid said amounts through preferred shares that were issued as a guarantee and which Claimants converted into shares of common stock. In connection with the purchase of the stock of the entity that eventually became RealBiz Media Group, Inc. (and subsequently Verus International, Inc.), the Company issued 380,000 shares of Monaker Series D Preferred Stock shares with a value of $1,900,000, which was considered the $1,200,000 value of the stock portion of the purchase price and was also meant to guaranty the payment of the balance of $700,000. The Company contends that the obligation to pay the $700,000 was extinguished with the conversion of the Monaker Series D Preferred Stock shares into shares of common stock. The date for arbitration has not been set and the Company will vehemently defend its position.

 

The Company is unable to determine the estimate of the probable or reasonable possible loss or range of losses arising from the above legal proceedings; however, the Company denies the plaintiffs’ claims and intends to vehemently defend itself against the allegations. As of November 30, 2020, there has been no further update on the arbitration.

 

On April 27, 2020, the Company filed a verified complaint for injunctive relief against IDS, Inc. (“IDS”) and certain other defendants affiliated with IDS in the Circuit Court of the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit in and for Broward County, Florida (Case No. CACE-20-007088). Pursuant to the complaint, the Company alleged causes of action against the defendants, including IDS, based on among other things, fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, aiding and abetting fraud, rescission, and breach of contract, and seeks a temporary and permanent injunction against the defendants, requiring such persons to return the 1,968,000 shares of restricted common stock of the Company (the “IDS Shares”) issued to IDS pursuant to the terms of an Intellectual Property Purchase Agreement in August 2019 (the “IP Purchase Agreement”) and preventing such persons from selling or transferring any IDS Shares, seeks damages from the defendants, rescission of the IP Purchase Agreement, attorneys fees and other amounts.

 

The complaint was filed as a result of IDS’s failure to deliver the intellectual property assets which the Company purchased pursuant to the IP Purchase Agreement (the “IP Assets”), certain other actions of IDS and the other defendants which the Company alleges constitutes fraud and to seek to unwind the IP Purchase Agreement and provide damages to the Company due to IDS’s and the other defendants’ breaches thereunder. IDS, through its counsel, sent a letter threatening to bring a shareholders’ derivative action and/or direct suit against the Company. In response to such letter, the Board of Directors empowered the governance committee to conduct an internal investigation into the claims, which investigation is ongoing. Management of the Company believes the claims are meritless.

 

On April 29, 2020, the Company filed a Verified Motion for Temporary Injunction (the “Injunction Motion”). The Court has not yet scheduled a hearing on the Injunction Motion. A clerk’s default has been entered against one of the defendants, TD Assets Holding, LLC for failing to timely respond to the complaint. By agreement of the parties, the deadline for certain of the defendants, Navarro Hernandez, P.L., and Aaron M. McKown, to respond to the Complaint has been stayed. Defendants IDS, TD Assets Holding, LLC, and Ari Daniels were served, but did not file with the clerk of the court, an answer, affirmative defenses, and counterclaims (the “Answer and Counterclaim”). The Answer and Counterclaim included alleged breach of contract and tort claims against the Company. On September 17, 2020, the Company moved to strike the affirmative defenses and dismiss the counterclaims. On October 5, 2020, defendants IDS, TD Assets Holding, LLC, and Ari Daniels filed an amended Answer and Counterclaim, including alleged breach of contract, tort, and federal securities claims against the Company, Mr. William Kerby, our Chief Executive Officer and an employee of the Company. The Company intends to vigorously pursue the claims asserted in the complaint and the Company and its officer/employee denies the claims alleged in the Answer and Counterclaim and will vigorously defend such claims.

 

If the Company does not prevail, it will retain the rights to the IP Assets and may elect to complete the source code that was acquired from IDS to make the source code production ready. If the Company prevails in the lawsuit, the Company will return the IP Assets to IDS. Therefore, until such time as the disposition of the lawsuit is determined, the Company will keep the “CIP – IDS Project” assets recorded at a value of $5 Million. Once a determination on the lawsuit has been made, Monaker will take appropriate action regarding the value of these assets. Mediation is scheduled for February 3rd and a three day hearing is scheduled for the week of February 15th.

Note 9 – Business Segment Reporting

 

Accounting Standards Codification 280-16 “Segment Reporting” established standards for reporting information about operating segments in annual consolidated financial statements and required selected information about operating segments in interim financial reports issued to stockholders. It also established standards for related disclosures about products, services, and geographic areas. Operating segments are defined as components of the enterprise about which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker, or decision-making group, in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance.

 

The Company has one operating segment consisting of various products and services related to its online marketplace of travel and related logistics including destination tours / activities, accommodation rental listings, hotel listings, air and car rental. The Company’s chief operating decision maker is considered to be the Chief Executive Officer. The chief operating decision maker allocates resources and assesses performance of the business and other activities at the single operating segment level.

(“Kingswood”) and Aegis Capital Corp. (“Aegis”), as representatives of the underwriters name therein (the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell to the Underwriters in a firm commitment underwritten public offering (the “Offering”) an aggregate of 3,080,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a public offering price of $2.50 per share. The Company also granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 462,000 shares of Common Stock to cover over-allotments, if any, which over-allotment option was exercised in full on January 13, 2021. The Offering closed on December 31, 2020. Kingswood and Aegis acted as the book-running managers for the Offering. The shares of common stock sold in the Offering were offered and sold by the Company pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 17, 2018 and declared effective on July 2, 2018 (File No. 333-224309) (the “Registration Statement”). The Offering was made by means of a prospectus forming a part of the effective registration statement. The Company paid the Underwriters a cash fee equal to 6% of the aggregate gross proceeds received by the Company in connection with the Offering, paid the Underwriters a non-accountable expense allowance equal to 1% of the aggregate gross proceeds received by the Company in connection with the Offering, and reimbursed certain expenses of the Underwriters. The net proceeds to the Company from the Offering, after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and Offering expenses, were approximately $8.1 million.

 

On January 4, 2021, the Company made a payment of $2,070,411 under the Revolving Monaco Trust Note, including $2,049,523 of principal and $20,888 of interest owed thereunder (described above under “Note 6 – Related Party Promissory Notes and Transactions”) to satisfy the outstanding balance thereof.

The lease agreement, which was signed on December 24, 2020, will become the Company’s new corporate office located at 1560 Sawgrass Corporate Parkway Suite 130, Sunrise, Florida 33323, and will expire on the last day of the 89th month following the commencement date. The current office space lease at 2893 Executive Park Dr, Suite 201, Weston, Florida 33331 will not be renewed. Monthly rent under the lease increases each year during the term of the lease, from between $11,160 per month (for the first year of the lease), to $13,734 during the last year of the lease term, provided that no rent is due for the first five months of the lease term.

 

On January 5, 2021, the Company, through Longroot, subscribed to purchase an additional 100 shares of Longroot Cayman, in consideration for $1 million. The subscription was made pursuant to certain pre-emptive rights set forth in a shareholders’ agreement entered into between the shareholders of Longroot Cayman and brought Longroot’s ownership of Longroot Cayman up to 75%.

 

Currently Longroot owns an approximate 36.75% indirect interest in Longroot Thailand, due to its ownership of 75% of Longroot Cayman, which in turn owns 49% of Longroot Thailand (75% x 49% = 36.75%)), provided that Longroot Cayman controls 90% of Longroot Thailand’s voting shares and therefore effectively controls Longroot Thailand.

 

On January 6, 2021, the Company, HotPlay and the HotPlay Stockholders entered into a Third Amendment to Share Exchange Agreement (the “Third HotPlay Amendment”), which amended the HotPlay Exchange Agreement to:

 

●          Fix the number of shares of Monaker common stock issuable to the HotPlay stockholders at the Closing at 52,000,000 shares of common stock;

 

●          Extend the date by which the HotPlay Exchange Agreement is required to be completed until February 28, 2021 (from December 31, 2020);

 

●          Allow Monaker the ability to issue (a) shares of common stock or options to employees, consultants, officers or directors of the Company pursuant to any stock or option plan duly adopted for such purpose, by a majority of the non-employee members of the board of directors or a majority of the members of a committee of non-employee directors established for such purpose for services rendered to the Company and (b) securities issued upon the exercise or exchange of or conversion of any securities outstanding on the date of the agreement, without the prior consent of HotPlay or the HotPlay stockholders and further allow for additional securities of Monaker to be issued prior to closing with the approval of HotPlay or Red Anchor;

 

●          Provide for HotPlay and the HotPlay Stockholders to approve all transactions of Monaker which were disclosed in its Securities and Exchange Commission filings from the date of the original HotPlay Exchange Agreement, through the date of the Third HotPlay Amendment;

 

●          Provide for there to be eight members of the board of directors at closing (provided that the parties have since agreed informally to increase such number of directors to nine), with four appointed by HotPlay, two appointed by Monaker, and two (now three pursuant to the agreement of the parties) appointed mutually by Monaker and HotPlay; and

 

●          Allow for Monaker to enter into agreements and take actions outside of the ordinary course of business through the closing date with the prior consent of HotPlay.

 

 26 

 

 

On January 6, 2021, the Company, the Axion Stockholders and the Axion Creditors entered into a First Amendment to the Amended and Restated Share Exchange Agreement, which amended the Amended and Restated Share Exchange entered into between the Company, the Axion Stockholders and the Axion Creditors, to:

 

●          correct certain errors originally included in the Axion Share Exchange Agreement, regarding the ownership of certain shares of Axion which were exchanged by the Axion Stockholders party thereto, and to correct the allocation of the shares of Series B Preferred Stock issuable to certain of the Axion Stockholders in connection therewith;

 

●          provide for the assignment of various shares of Series B Preferred Stock between certain of the Axion stockholders to correct the allocations of the Series B Preferred Stock between such stockholders, based on the pro rata issuance of such shares in exchange for the shares of Axion held by such Axion stockholders on the effective date of such Axion Share Exchange Agreement;

 

●          remove Uniq Other Vendors as an Axion Stockholder (and Series B Preferred Stockholder), from such Axion Share Exchange Agreement;

 

●          allow for the parties to mutually determine to not transfer record ownership of the shares of Axion which the Company acquired pursuant to the Axion Share Exchange Agreement to the Company and that the parties can instead enter into an agreement providing the Company voting and economic rights to such shares, until such time, if ever, as the Company determines it is in its best interests to affect such transfer of record ownership of such shares; and

 

●          agree to the amendment and restatement of the Series B Preferred Stock of the Company as discussed below.

 

Also on January 6, 2021, stockholders holding a majority of the outstanding shares of Series B Preferred Stock of the Company approved an amendment and restatement of the designation of the Series B Preferred Stock, which was previously approved by the board of directors of the Company on December 14, 2020, and which amended and restated designation was filed with the Secretary of State of Nevada on January 8, 2021, which amended the Series B Preferred Stock to fix the number of shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Series B Preferred Stock at 7,417,700 shares of Monaker common stock.

 

On January 6, 2021 and January 14, 2021, the Company made payments of $1,540,000 and $231,000 respectively, under the Streeterville Note, which payment was required pursuant to the terms of such note (as a required prepayment thereof, and in connection with a 10% penalty thereon), in connection with the Company’s underwritten offering. The Streeterville Note is described in greater detail under “Note 5 – Line of Credit and Notes Payable—Note Purchase Agreement: Streeterville Capital, LLC.

 

Effective on January 12, 2021, Monaker, NextTrip Holdings, LLC, a newly formed Florida limited liability, which is wholly-owned by Monaker (“NextTrip”), HotPlay, and the HotPlay Stockholders, entered into a Subsidiary Formation and Funding Agreement (the “Formation and Funding Agreement”). The entry into the Formation and Funding Agreement was a required condition to closing the HotPlay Exchange Agreement, which required that Monaker transfer all of its pre-existing operations into a newly formed, wholly-owned subsidiary and that Monaker execute an agreement acceptable in form to Monaker and the principal HotPlay Stockholder providing for the operations of NextTrip, including governance and funding requirements associated therewith.

 

According to the Formation and Funding Agreement, Monaker agreed, prior to the closing date of the HotPlay Share Exchange, to transfer all of the assets, operations, material agreements, employees, and goodwill of Monaker relating to travel operations and business (collectively, the “travel operations”) to NextTrip to insulate the travel operations from the remainder of Monaker’s post-closing operations and allow for Monaker’s pre-closing management to continue to manage the travel operations post-closing pursuant to the terms of the NextTrip operating agreement (defined below). The Formation and Funding Agreement also provides for all North American payroll for Monaker’s travel operations to be paid through, and run by, NextTrip.

 

The Formation and Funding Agreement also requires Monaker (which at that time will have acquired 100% ownership of HotPlay), to transfer, within five (5) business days of the closing, no less than $5.8 million (less pre-closing advances (defined below)) of the cash held on the books of HotPlay at the time of closing to NextTrip (the “initial advance”). The initial advance will be available for use by NextTrip to retire debt of NextTrip (and/or debt of Monaker), fund operations, further develop the travel operations, and for such other purposes which are approved by the Board of Managers of NextTrip. “Pre-closing advances” means the aggregate amount of the HotPlay loans. The initial advance shall not be a loan, but shall instead be deemed a capital contribution from Monaker to NextTrip.

 

The Formation and Funding Agreement also requires Monaker to advance an additional $10 million to NextTrip in 2021, pursuant to a mutually agreed-upon schedule of advances (the “subsequent advances”, and together with the initial advance, the “advances”). The subsequent advances shall similarly not be a loan, but shall instead be deemed further capital contributions by Monaker to NextTrip.

 

Additionally, as a separate requirement from the requirement to make the advances, Monaker is required to continue to fund all NextTrip expenses and operations, for so long as Monaker owns at least 50% of NextTrip, provided that NextTrip stays within 130% of a budget approved by the Board of Managers of NextTrip on an annual (calendar year) basis (the “budget threshold”). In the event NextTrip exceeds the budget threshold in any calendar year, Monaker shall not be required to fund more than the budget threshold in such calendar year, but shall be required to fund the approved budget (in an amount of up to the then applicable budget threshold) in subsequent calendar years. Monaker is also required to promptly pay for, or reimburse NextTrip for (at the option of NextTrip), all legal, audit, insurance, employee, administrative work, and other expenses paid or incurred by NextTrip on behalf of Monaker.

 

 27 

 

 

Under the Funding and Formation Agreement, NextTrip is required to assume all of the contractual and other obligations and liabilities of Monaker incurred before closing, provided that if such formal assumption is deemed too difficult or impracticable by NextTrip, or such formal assumption would trigger any defaults, required consents, or would be subject to any prerequisites, instead of formally assuming such obligations, NextTrip is required to pay such obligations as they come due and according to their terms (as such may be amended and modified from time to time).

 

Additionally, if Monaker’s currently pending lawsuit with IDS, Inc. (“IDS”), results in IDS returning the 1,968,000 shares of restricted common stock of Monaker which were originally issued to IDS in August 2019 (the “IDS Shares”), NextTrip shall, with the approval of the Board of Directors of Monaker, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, be able to use, and have issued for its benefit, such number of shares of Monaker for acquisitions and strategic transactions which benefit NextTrip and the travel operations, at the request of the NextTrip Board of Managers.

 

Finally, the Funding and Formation Agreement provided that NextTrip was required, before the closing, to adopt an operating agreement, which is discussed below, and which was adopted on January 11, 2021.

 

On January 11, 2021, Monaker, as sole-owner of NextTrip adopted the Operating Agreement of NextTrip (the “operating agreement”). The operating agreement sets forth the framework for the governance and operation of NextTrip. The operating agreement includes standard representations and warranties of members of NextTrip, customary indemnification and confidentiality obligations, and other customary and standard terms relating to the governance of limited liabilities companies.

 

The operating agreement provides for a three-person Board of Managers (“Board of Managers”) who manage NextTrip. Of those three members, two of such members are appointed by William Kerby and Donald P. Monaco, the current Chief Executive Officer and director and Chairman of the board of directors of NextTrip, and one of the members of the Board of Directors is selected by Monaker. Such designees can remove the managers they can appoint, replace such members from time to time in their discretion, and choose which persons fill vacancies created on the Board of Managers (to the extent such vacancies relate to positions they have authority to fill).

 

The initial members of the Board of Managers of NextTrip are (1) Mr. Kerby, (2) Mr. Monaco, and (3) J. Todd Bonner, a director of HotPlay.

 

The Board of Managers are tasked with creating a budget for NextTrip from time to time, but at least annually. The Managers have authority, without member approval, to have full, complete, and exclusive authority to manage and control the business, affairs, and properties of NextTrip, which includes, among other things, the ability to operate NextTrip and to enter into agreements and contracts, open and maintain bank accounts, borrow money, take actions in connection with the operation of NextTrip’s business, acquire, sell and operate properties and assets, obtain insurance, incur legal and other fees, employ employees and consultants, make expenditures and undertake other decisions or acts.

 

Member approval is required however if the Board of Managers desires to take certain material transactions affecting NextTrip, including to (a) amend the operating agreement or the Articles of Organization of NextTrip; (b) change the character of the business of the company; (c) sell all or substantially all of NextTrip’s assets; (d) mortgage or encumber all or substantially all of NextTrip’s assets; (e) undertake any action that would make it impossible for NextTrip to carry on its business, subject to certain limited exceptions; (f) approve any transaction with any affiliate of NextTrip other than arm’s length terms; (g) make any expenditure greater than $50,000, which is not outlined in an approved budget; or (h) confess a judgment against NextTrip.

 

Mr. Kerby serves as the Chief Executive Officer of NextTrip, and has the authority to appoint employees of NextTrip, and set forth their positions and salaries with NextTrip, and to further provide for the bonuses payable to such persons, provided that such compensation and bonuses do not exceed more than $500,000 in aggregate.

 

The operating agreement also provides that the Board of Managers, in their sole discretion, subject to applicable law, and advice of counsel, may determine that it is in the best interests of NextTrip to spin-off the membership interests of NextTrip held by Monaker to Monaker’s stockholders (a “spin-off” and a “spin-off determination”). In the event of a spin-off determination, the board of directors of Monaker is required to hold a Special Meeting of the board of directors to discuss such spin-off determination (the “spin-off meeting”), and whether or not such spin-off determination is in the best interests of Monaker and its stockholders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is to be presumed that such spin-off is in the best interests of Monaker and its stockholders. In the event the board of directors determines not to move forward with a spin-off, the Board of Managers may make additional spin-off determinations in the future, subject to the obligation of the board of directors of Monaker to approve such spin-offs. If the board of directors of Monaker determines to move forward with the spin-off, the spin-off will proceed according to applicable law, and if necessary, NextTrip will convert into a corporation prior to, or in connection with, such spin-off. Notwithstanding the rights of the Board of Managers above, neither Monaker, NextTrip, or the Board of Managers have any present intention to affect a spin-off of NextTrip.

 

Additionally, if the board of directors of Monaker has determined to proceed with a spin-off, the number of authorized membership interests of NextTrip are automatically increased by 33%, after which time the Board of Managers are authorized to issue additional membership interests of NextTrip to managers, officers, management, employees, or consultants of NextTrip, in their sole discretion, in consideration for services rendered or to be rendered.

 

The operating agreement may only be amended with the majority approval of the Board of Managers and the unanimous approval of the members (i.e., Monaker).

 

 28 

 

 

Monaker does not anticipate transferring its operations to NextTrip until right before the closing of the HotPlay Share Exchange, and currently NextTrip has no assets or operations.

  

On January 15, 2021, the Company entered into a Founding Investment and Subscription Agreement (the “Investment Agreement”) with Reinhart Interactive TV AG, a company organized in Switzerland (“Reinhart”), and Jan C. Reinhart, the founder of Reinhart (“Founder”). The Investment Agreement contemplates the Company acquiring 51% of the ownership of Reinhart, in consideration for a capital contribution of 10,000,000 Swiss Francs (approximately $11.2 million), of which it is contemplated that one-half (approximately $5.6 million), will be paid in cash and one-half will be paid in restricted shares of the Company’s common stock (valued at approximately $5.6 million). The closing of the transactions contemplated by Investment Agreement is to take place on April 1, 2021, or earlier if the conditions to closing are earlier satisfied. Conditions to closing include the Company paying the required capital contribution, approval of the transaction by the board of directors of the Company and Reinhart, and certain requirements and confirmations required by Swiss law. The Investment Agreement includes customary representations and warranties of the parties. We also agreed to reimburse the Founder’s legal fees of up to 30,000 Swiss Francs (approximately $33,670) in connection with the transaction. Additionally, in the event we fail to close the transactions contemplated by the Investment Agreement by April 1, 2021, we agreed to pay the Founder 500,000 Swiss Francs (approximately $560,000), as a break-up fee.

 

Reinhart is in the business of providing a software-based TV and video distribution platform to telecom operators and digital content owners and providing services to telecom operators and digital content owners for user interaction design, as well as software development, deployment and support.

 

In connection with our entry into the Investment Agreement, we entered into a Founding Shareholders’ Agreement with the Founder setting forth certain rules for the governance and control of Reinhart.

Forward Looking Statements

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the attached consolidated unaudited financial statements and notes thereto, and our consolidated audited financial statements and related notes for our fiscal year ended February 29, 2020 found in our Annual Report on Form 10-K that the Company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 29, 2020 (the “Annual Report”). In addition to historical information, the following discussion contains forward- looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Where possible, we have tried to identify these forward-looking statements by using words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “intends,” or similar expressions. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements due to important factors and risks including, but not limited to, those set forth in our Annual Report.

 

This Report contains statements that we believe are, or may be considered to be, “forward-looking statements”, within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this Report regarding the prospects of our industry or our prospects, plans, financial position or business strategy, may constitute forward-looking statements.

Furthermore, such forward-looking statements may be included in various filings that we make with the Securities and Exchange Commission or press releases or oral statements made by or with the approval of one of our authorized executive officers. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot assure you that these expectations will prove to be correct. These forward-looking statements are subject to certain known and unknown risks and uncertainties, as well as assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected in these forward-looking statements.

We cannot assure you that the forward-looking statements in this Report will prove to be accurate and therefore prospective investors are encouraged not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations are based upon its consolidated unaudited financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these unaudited financial statements requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent liabilities. On an on-going basis, management evaluates past judgments and estimates, including those related to bad debts, accrued liabilities, convertible promissory notes and contingencies. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. The accounting policies and related risks described in the Company’s Annual Report are those that depend most heavily on these judgments and estimates. As of November 30, 2020, there had been no material changes to any of the critical accounting policies contained therein.

Overview

 

Monaker Group, Inc., is an innovative technology company that is building next generation solutions to power the travel, gaming, and cryptocurrency industries. We believe the most promising part of our business plan is our ability to achieve shareholder value through acquisition and organic growth that presents new opportunities in the leisure space and strengthens our existing technology platforms.

 

Through our subsidiaries NextTrip and Maupintour, we provide travel technology solutions with a primary emphasis on alternative lodging rental (ALR) properties. Our proprietary Booking Engine provides travel distributors access to a sizeable inventory of ALR properties allowing them to combine ALR with traditional components of travel (Air, Car, Cruise, etc.).

 

Our industry-leading platform assists property managers in booking, and broadening the market for, their homes. The Company serves three major constituents: (1) property managers, (2) travelers, and (3) other travel/lodging distributors. Property managers integrate their detailed property listings into the Monaker Booking Engine with the goal of reaching a broad audience of travelers seeking ALRs, through distribution channels they could not access otherwise.

 

All of Monaker’s ALRs, also commonly referred to as Vacation Rentals are:

 

i)Controlled by Property Management Companies. This is a key point of differentiation for Monaker, as the sole focus of Property Management Companies is to rent and service their properties, unlike an individual homeowner who often rents their property on a casual or part-time basis. We believe working with property managers results in four key benefits:

 

All properties are Instantly Bookable (all Property Management Company inventory is integrated into Monaker’s Booking Engine allowing for instant confirmations);

 

Higher levels of service for renters (property managers are full-time operators);

 

Higher Quality Assurance (property managers generally have an incentive to eliminate trouble properties); and

 

Certified Rentable (most property managers are licensed and bonded requiring them to ensure properties are “legal to rent” and are further responsible for paying required taxes on behalf of homeowners.

 

ii)Exclusively Individual Units. Our vacation homes and residential resort units are never shared, nor do we rent rooms in homes like other ALR companies. All ALR inventory is fully furnished, privately owned residential properties, including homes, condominiums, apartments, villas and cabins that property managers rent to the public on a nightly, weekly or monthly basis.

 

Monaker has uniquely positioned itself in the ALR sector - which is one of the fastest growth segments within the travel industry. ALR inventory provides a key solution to traditional travel distributors. According to a January 3, 2017 article by Kevin May, the Editor In Chief of PhocusWire, as posted on Tnooz.com (“Private accommodation travel bookings to reach $106 billion by 2018”), it is estimated that roughly 1 out of 5 lodging accommodations in 2018 was an ALR transaction and by most accounts this growth is continuing to accelerate (notwithstanding the current decreases in lodging and travel caused by COVID-19).

 

Monaker B2B ALR offerings are timely in addressing traditional travel distributors’ needs to protect their client base by allowing them seamless access to ALR products. With the rapid growth of companies like Airbnb, we believe that traditional travel companies are realizing that not having access to this high demand vacation rental inventory means risking the loss of their consumers to other ALR sites. By connecting to Monaker’s Booking Engine, travel distributors can sell ALR inventory alongside their existing travel products (i.e., Air/Car/Hotel/Cruise/Tour bookings). This, solves a key issue by allowing the customers of traditional travel distributors to complete their entire vacation package booking on their website versus forcing them to go to an ALR website and potentially lose the entire booking.

Monaker’s Direct to Consumer Websites

 

Monaker has established a direct-to-consumer presence though a number of websites.

 

These sites include NextTrip.com, our corporate travel management platform focused on small to medium-sized business, that provides companies the ability to book travel, manage travel expenses, and process employee expense reports. A differentiating feature of our NextTrip.com solution is the ability for corporate travelers to book ALR properties as part of their travel itinerary. Our Maupintour.com marketplace provides luxury, personalized tours, and activities at destinations, as well as the ability to book ALR properties.

 

Monaker identifies and sources ALR properties which it consolidates through its Monaker Booking Engine, allowing for instantly bookable properties being packaged alongside other travel products; this is its distinguishing niche. The ALRs are owned and leased by third parties and are available to rent through Monaker’s websites as well as through other distributors. Monaker’s services include critical elements such as technology, an extensive film library, trusted brands and established partnerships that enhance product offerings and reach. We believe that consumers are quickly adopting video for researching and educating themselves prior to purchases, and Monaker has carefully amassed video content, key industry relationships and a prestigious travel brand as cornerstones for the development and deployment of core-technology on both proprietary and partnership platforms.

 

Monaker sells travel services to leisure and corporate customers around the world. Our primary focus is to incorporate ALR options into our current offerings of scheduling, pricing and availability information for booking reservations for airlines, hotels, rental cars, as well as other travel products such as sightseeing tours, shows and event tickets, and theme park passes. The Company sells these travel services both individually and as components of dynamically-assembled packaged travel vacations and trips. In addition, the Company provides content that presents travelers with information about travel destinations, maps and other travel details. In December 2020, the Company introduced its new corporate travel platform under the NextTrip brand. This platform allows our users to search large travel suppliers of alternative lodging inventories and combine ALR with their air and car booking.

 

In March 2018, the Company introduced Travelmagazine.com, an online travel publication with the aim of giving travelers around the world inspiration for future travel destinations and trips. The publication offers written articles, videos, and podcasts. Moving forward, we hope that Travelmagazine.com will become a central hub of information for travelers who are looking to get detailed information on destinations all around the world. We also plan to move Travelmagazine.com from having content created by a team of staff writers, to a team of worldwide writers who will contribute content for publication in the future, funding permitting. The website is expected to be supported by advertising and allow for promotion of both ALR and Maupintour vacation products.

 

The Company sells its ALR travel inventory through various distribution channels. The primary distribution channel is through its business-to-business (B2B) channel partners which include sales via (i) other travel companies’ websites and (ii) networks of third-party travel agents. Secondary distribution will occur through the Company’s own websites at NextTrip.com and Maupintour.com. Additionally, we will be offering high end ALR products along with specialty travel products and services via Maupintour.com, targeting high value inventory to customers with complex or high-end travel needs.

 

Monaker’s core holdings are planned to be streamlined by this summer into four key platforms being; the Monaker Booking Engine (MBE), NextTrip.com, Maupintour.com, and TravelMagazine.com.

 

ØThe Monaker Booking Engine (MBE) is the Company’s proprietary technology and platform providing access to more than 3.4 million instantly bookable vacation rental homes, villas, chalets, apartments, condos, resort residences, and castles. This ALR product can be accessed by other travel distributors using the Company’s API.

 

ØNextTrip.com is targeted at small to midsized businesses offering them a customized travel solution for business travel to meetings, conferences, conventions or even vacation travel and gives the companies lower costs, better expense control and in the future the option for a “self-branded” website.

 

ØMaupintour complements the Nextrip.com offerings by providing high-end tour packages, activities/attractions, and specialized ALRs that cannot be booked on a real-time basis. These ALRs tend to be sourced from owners and managers who have not invested in a reservation management system and/or the owner or manager prefers to personally vet the customer before accepting a booking; typically, because the ALR is a high value property.

 

ØTravelmagazine.com, an online travel publication with the aim of giving travelers around the world inspiration for future travel destinations and trips. The publication offers written articles, videos, and podcasts. Moving forward, we plan for Travelmagazine.com to become a central hub of information for travelers who are looking to get detailed information on destinations all around the world.

 

Cryptocurrency Portal

 

As discussed in greater detail below under “Recent Events“, on November 16, 2020, the Company acquired 100% of Longroot, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Longroot”), which in turn owned 57% of Longroot Limited, a Cayman Islands company (“Longroot Cayman”). Longroot Cayman owned 49% of the outstanding shares (100% of the ordinary shares) of Longroot Holding (Thailand) Company Limited (“Longroot Thailand”), provided that Longroot Cayman controls 90% of Longroot Thailand’s voting shares and therefore effectively controls Longroot Thailand. Longroot has since increased its ownership in Longroot Cayman and currently Longroot owns an approximate 36.75% indirect interest in Longroot Thailand, due to its ownership of 75% of Longroot Cayman, which in turn owns 49% of Longroot Thailand (75% x 49% = 36.75%)), provided that Longroot Cayman controls 90% of Longroot Thailand’s voting shares and therefore effectively controls Longroot Thailand.

Longroot Thailand, provides blockchain technology solutions for the fast-growing cryptocurrency marketplace. Longroot Thailand is an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) portal operator authorized and regulated under the Thai Digital Asset Business Law and licensed by the Thai Securities and Exchange Commission. Longroot Thailand provides fully regulated and licensed digital assets financing, and investment services for digital assets. This innovative business model opens the door for new digital currency financing mechanisms, and new digital investment products. Monaker, with its indirect control over Longroot Thailand, is planning to use Longroot Thailand’s technology and digital asset capabilities to create regulated cryptocurrencies designed to allow consumers to invest in unique revenue streams in wholesale travel, real estate homes and hotels, gaming assets and digital advertising – as well as potential token and loyalty program opportunities complementary to Monaker’s planned gaming (with the acquisition of HotPlay) and current travel businesses.

 

Travel Products and Services

 

Monaker plans to focus on marketing ALR options directly to consumers and to other travel distributors. The Company’s concentration on ALRs is driven by contracts with vacation home (including timeshare) unit owners and managers that make their properties available to consumers and to other travel portals (Distributors) for nightly or extended stays. In addition, we offer travelers activities and tours through our subsidiary, Maupintour. Therefore, not only can we assist a traveler with identifying a destination and the lodging at the destination, but we can provide options of activities while at the destination. We also provide the means for making arrangements for airline tickets, car rentals and lodging (i.e., hotels and ALRs in the near future). In summary, Monaker offers travelers the complete travel package made easy or... Travel Made EasyTM.

 

The average ALR search and booking takes a few hours while the average vacation planning process typically involves the consumer visiting up to seven travel websites and spending over 10 hours to book their vacation (according to Susan Ho, Founder of Journy). We believe the NextTrip.com website using the above features should reduce ALR/Vacation planning time from hours to minutes and with the convenience of one site (truly “Travel Made Easy”).

 

Products and Services for Property Owners and Managers

 

Listings. Property owners and managers are able to list a property, with no initial upfront fees, and provide those listings to us at a negotiated preferential rate for traveler bookings generated on our websites. Listings that are ‘real-time online bookable’ properties will be managed by the property owner or manager through an application program interface (API) which will provide real-time updates to each property and immediately notify the property owner or manager of all information regarding bookings, including modifications and cancellations. Information such as content, descriptions and images are provided to us through that API.

 

Listings that are “request-accept” properties will require communication and approval from the property owner or manager and will not be managed through an API (as discussed above). We will provide a set of tools for the property owner or manager that will enable them to manage an availability calendar, reservations, inquiries and the content of the listing. These tools will allow the property owner or manager to create the listing by uploading photographs, text descriptions or lists of amenities, a map showing the location of the property, and property availability, all of which can be updated throughout the term of the listing. Each listing will provide travelers the ability to use email or other methods to contact property owners and managers.

 

The listings will include tools and services to help property owners and managers run their vacation rental businesses more efficiently: responding to and managing inquiries, preparing and sending rental quotes and payment invoices, allowing travelers to book online and, enter into rental agreements, and processing online payments. Property owners and managers who elect to process online payments will be subject to a transaction fee.

 

Redistribution of Listings. We will make selected, online bookable properties available to online travel agencies as well as channel partners (jointly referred to as “Distributors”). We will be compensated for these services by receiving a commission that is added to the negotiated net rate for each booking.

 

Products and Services for Travelers

 

Search Tools and Ability to Compare. Our online marketplace NextTrip.com provides travelers with tools to search for and filter several travel products including air, car, accommodations (including ALRs) and activities based on various criteria, such as destination, travel dates, type of property, number of bedrooms, amenities, price, or keywords. NextTripVacations.com provides travelers access to our entire listing of ALRs; only lodgings are presented on this website.

 

Traveler Login. Travelers are able to create accounts on the NextTrip.com website that give them access to their booking activity through the website.

 

Travel Blog. Travel guides, videos and pictures as well as travel articles can be accessed through Travelmagazine.com.

 

Security. We use a combination of technology and human review to evaluate the content of listings and to screen for inaccuracies or fraud with the goal of providing only accurate and trustworthy information to travelers. Our company is Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant to ensure the safety and security of our customer credit card data.

 

 33 

 

 

Reviews and Ratings. Travelers are able to submit online reviews of the ALRs they have rented through our websites. These reviews should convey the accuracy of the listing information found on our websites.

 

Communication. Travelers who create an account on our website will receive regular communications, including notices about places of interest, special offers, new listings, and an email newsletter. The newsletter will be available to any traveler who agrees to receive it and offers introductions to new destinations and vacation rentals, as well as tips and useful information when staying in vacation rentals.

 

Mobile Websites and Applications. We provide versions of our websites formatted for web browsers, smart-phones and tablets so that property owners, managers and travelers can access our websites and tools from mobile devices.

 

To date, we have focused on developing our booking engine and establishing relationships with suppliers to increase the size of our instantly bookable inventory. The booking engine has produced little revenue to date because, among other reasons, of the limited number of widely-used distribution partners with which we have been able to establish relationships. We have recently begun contracting with established, widely-used distribution partners to make our inventory available through their distribution channels. The success of the booking engine will depend on users of those distribution partners booking properties supplied by our booking engine, and on our ability to expand the number of such distribution partners that utilize our booking engine.

 

The Company has completed integrating several distributors for the booking of our ALR products and the Company continues to integrate suppliers of ALR products. We now have more than 3.4 million properties listed on our booking engine.

 

Products and Services for Cryptocurrency Investors

 

ICO Portal. Through our indirect control of Longroot Thailand, we, through Longroot Thailand, offer an ICO Portal located at Longroot.com, that provides investors a new digital investment product and gives suppliers a new digital currency financing mechanism. Monaker, through its indirect control of Longroot Thailand, is planning to use the technology and digital asset capabilities to create regulated cryptocurrencies designed to allow consumers to invest in unique revenue streams in wholesale travel, real estate homes and hotels, gaming assets and digital advertising – as well as potential token and loyalty program opportunities complementary to Monaker’s gaming (planned through the acquisition of HotPlay) and travel businesses.

 

The Company is a Nevada corporation headquartered in Weston, Florida.

 

Sufficiency of Cash Flows

 

In connection with our entry into the HotPlay Exchange Agreement (described below), we have received advances from HotPlay, totaling $3,000,000 as of the date of this filing, pursuant to the terms of that agreement, which are required to continue on a monthly basis through the closing date of the HotPlay Share Exchange. Additionally, as discussed below, we raised funds through an underwritten offering in December 2020, pursuant to which net proceeds to us were approximately $8.1 million. Notwithstanding that funding, in the event the HotPlay Share Exchange does not close on a timely basis, HotPlay ceases making required advances, or the HotPlay Share Exchange is terminated, we anticipate requiring additional funding, because our projected cash generated from operations is not sufficient to meet our cash needs for working capital and capital expenditures, and if such additional funds are required, management intends to seek additional equity or obtain additional credit facilities or loans. However, we may be unable to raise additional capital upon terms acceptable to us. The sale of additional equity will result in additional dilution to our shareholders. A portion of our cash may be used to acquire or invest in complementary businesses or products or to obtain the right to use complementary technologies, or to increase our ownership of Axion and/or Longroot Cayman. From time to time, in the ordinary course of business, we evaluate potential acquisitions of such businesses, products or technologies.

We previously operated solely in the travel industry. With the recent acquisition of Longroot Inc, as previously discussed, we are now venturing into the cryptocurrency industry. Upon the completion of the HotPlay Exchange Agreement, the Company plans to transition its operations to those of a travel, cryptocurrency, and an in-game advertising company. During the period until the closing of the HotPlay Exchange Agreement, and in the event the HotPlay Exchange Agreement is not consummated, the Company intends to continue to actively operate in the travel and cryptocurrency industries.

Monaco is the trustee and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Monaco Trust”), in the amount of up to $2,700,000 (the “Revolving Monaco Trust Note”).

 

The amount owed pursuant to the Revolving Monaco Trust Note accrues interest at the rate of 12% per annum (18% upon the occurrence of an event of default). The Revolving Monaco Trust Note contains standard and customary events of default.

 

On January 29, 2020, the Company entered into a first amendment to the Revolving Trust Note with the Monaco Trust, to extend the maturity date of such note from February 1, 2020 to April 1, 2020. No other changes were made to such note as a result of such amendment.

The Revolving Monaco Trust Note was fully repaid on January 4, 2021, with funds raised through the underwritten offering discussed below.

 

Longroot Acquisition

 

On November 16, 2020, Monaker acquired 100% of Longroot, Inc. (“Longroot”), which in turn owned 57% of Longroot Limited, a Cayman Islands company (“Longroot Cayman”). Longroot Cayman owns 49% of the outstanding shares (100% of the ordinary shares) of Longroot Holding (Thailand) Company Limited (“Longroot Thailand”), provided that Longroot Cayman controls 90% of Longroot Thailand’s voting shares and therefore effectively controls Longroot Thailand.

 

The acquisition was made pursuant to the November 2, 2020 Stock Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”) entered into with Dr. Jason Morton (“Morton”), and for certain limited purposes set forth therein, Longroot. Pursuant to the SPA, the Company purchased, 100% of Longroot, in consideration for (a) $1,700,000 in cash; and (b) 200,000 shares of restricted common stock. A total of $100,000 was paid as a non-refundable deposit towards the purchase of Longroot on October 15, 2020, and a total of $700,000 was paid at the closing on November 16, 2020, along with the issuance of the shares. Additionally, prior to the closing, the Company advanced a separate $400,000 to Longroot which was used for working capital prior to closing which brought the purchase price to a total of $2.2 million. The remaining $900,000 owed to Morton pursuant to the terms of the SPA (the “Remaining Cash Payments”) is payable in three installments of $300,000 each, due on or prior to (i) December 16, 2020 (30 days after the closing), which amount has been paid in full; (ii) March 16, 2021 (120 days after the closing); and (iii) April 15, 2021 (150 days after the closing), of which $150,000 has previously been paid as discussed below. Pursuant to the SPA, Morton has the option to elect to receive any or all of the Remaining Cash Payments in shares of common stock of the Company, with such number of shares issuable based on a Company stock price of $3.00 per share.

 

 36 

 

 

The Company provided Morton demand registration rights in connection with shares of restricted common stock of the Company held by Morton, provided that Morton is not authorized to request more than one demand registration in any 12-month period. In the event such demand registration right is exercised, the Company has 60 days to file a registration statement to register the shares demanded to be registered and is required to use commercially reasonable best efforts thereafter to gain effectiveness of such registration statement, with all fees being paid for by the Company. The demand registration right has no expiration date.

 

Effective on December 11, 2020, the Company entered into a letter agreement with Morton, which revised the terms of the SPA. Pursuant to the letter agreement, we agreed to accelerate the payment of an aggregate of $150,000 of the $300,000 which was payable pursuant to the terms of the SPA on or prior to April 15, 2021 (which amount was promptly paid), in consideration for Morton agreeing to withdraw a prior demand he had made for the Company to file a registration statement to register the 200,000 shares of common stock previously issue to Morton pursuant to the terms of the SPA. We also agreed to file a registration statement to register the 200,000 shares no later than January 31, 2021.

 

On January 5, 2021, the Company, through Longroot, subscribed to purchase an additional 100 shares of Longroot Cayman, in consideration for $1 million. The subscription was made pursuant to certain pre-emptive rights set forth in a shareholders’ agreement entered into between the shareholders of Longroot Cayman, and brought Longroot’s ownership of Longroot Cayman up to 75%.

 

A total of 22.9% of Longroot Cayman is owned by True Axion Interactive Ltd., of which Axion holds a 60% interest. Monaker currently owns approximately 33.85% of Axion’s shares.

 

Currently Longroot owns an approximate 36.75% indirect interest in Longroot Thailand, due to its ownership of 75% of Longroot Cayman, which in turn owns 49% of Longroot Thailand (75% x 49% = 36.75%)), provided that Longroot Cayman controls 90% of Longroot Thailand’s voting shares and therefore effectively controls Longroot Thailand.

 

Longroot Thailand is an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) portal operator authorized and regulated under Thai Digital Asset Business Law and licensed by the Thai Securities and Exchange Commission.

Streeterville Note Purchase

 

On November 23, 2020, the Company entered into a Note Purchase Agreement (the “Note Purchase Agreement”) with Streeterville Capital, LLC, an accredited investor (“Streeterville”), pursuant to which the Company sold Streeterville a Secured Promissory Note in the original principal amount of $5,520,000 (the “Streeterville Note”). Streeterville paid consideration of (a) $3,500,000 in cash; and (b) issued the Company a promissory note in the amount of $1,500,000 (the “Investor Note”), in consideration for the Streeterville Note, which included an original issue discount of $500,000 (the “OID”) and reimbursement of Streeterville’s transaction expenses of $20,000. A total of $350,000 of the OID is fully earned and the remaining $150,000 is not fully earned until the Investor Note is fully-funded by Streeterville.

 

The Streeterville Note bears interest at a rate of 10% per annum and matures 12 months after its issuance date (i.e., on November 23, 2021). From time to time, beginning six months after issuance, Streeterville may redeem a portion of the Streeterville Note, not to exceed an amount of $875,000 per month if the Investor Note has not been funded by Streeterville, and $1.25 million in the event the Investor Note has been funded in full. In the event we don’t pay the amount of any requested redemption within three trading days, an amount equal to 25% of such redemption amount is added to the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note. Under certain circumstances, the Company may defer the redemption payments up to three times, for 30 days each, provided that upon each such deferral the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note is increased by 2%. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Streeterville Note, the Company may prepay all or any portion of the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note at any time subject to a prepayment penalty equal to 10% of the amount of the outstanding balance to be prepaid. For so long as the Streeterville Note remains outstanding, the Company has agreed to pay to Streeterville 20% of the gross proceeds that the Company receives from the sale of any of its common stock or preferred stock, which payments will be applied towards and will reduce the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note, which percentage increases to 30% upon the occurrence of, and continuance of, an event of default under the Streeterville Note (each an “Equity Payment”). Each time that we fail to pay an Equity Payment, the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note automatically increases by 10%. Additionally, in the event we fail to timely pay any such Equity Payment, Streeterville may seek an injunction which would prevent us from issuing common or preferred stock until or unless we pay such Equity Payment.

 

The Streeterville Note provides that if any of the following events have not occurred on or before April 30, 2021, the then outstanding balance of the note (including accrued and unpaid interest) increases by an amount equal to 25% of the then-current outstanding balance thereof: (a) the closing has not occurred; (b) during the period beginning on July 21, 2020, and ending on the date that the closing occurs, HotPlay must have raised at least $15,000,000 in cash through equity investments; (c) at the closing, all outstanding debt owed by the Company to HotPlay must have either been forgiven by HotPlay or converted into the Company’s common stock; (d) HotPlay must have become a co-borrower on the Streeterville Note; and (e) the Company must have paid off all outstanding debt obligations to the Monaco Trust and National Bank of Commerce (formerly Republic Bank)(“National Bank”), which amount owed to National Bank has been repaid in full.

Pursuant to the Streeterville Note, we provided Streeterville a right of first refusal to purchase any promissory note, debenture, or other debt instruments which we propose to sell, other than sales to officers or directors of the Company and/or sales to the government. Each time, if ever, that we provide Streeterville such right, and Streeterville does not exercise such right to provide such funding, the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note increases by 3%, unless the proceeds from such sale(s) are used to repay the Streeterville Note in full. Each time, if ever, that we fail to comply with the terms of the right of first refusal, the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note increases by 10%. The Streeterville Note includes offset rights against the Investor Note.

 

Additionally, upon each major default described in the Streeterville Note (i.e., the failure to pay amounts under the Streeterville Note when due or to observe any covenant under the Note Purchase Agreement (other than the requirement to make Equity Payments)) the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note automatically increases by 15%, and for each other default, the outstanding balance of the Streeterville Note automatically increases by 5%, provided such increase can only occur three times each as to major defaults and minor defaults, and that such aggregate increase cannot exceed 30% of the balance of the Streeterville Note immediately prior to the first event of default.

 

In connection with the Note Purchase Agreement and the Streeterville Note, the Company entered into a Security Agreement with Streeterville (the “Security Agreement”), pursuant to which the obligations of the Company are secured by substantially all of the assets of the Company.

 

The Investor Note, in the principal amount of $1,500,000, evidences an amount payable by Streeterville to the Company as partial consideration for the acquisition of the Streeterville Note. The Investor Note accrues interest at the rate of 10% per annum, payable in full on November 23, 2021, subject to a 30-day extension exercisable at the option of Streeterville and may be prepaid at any time. Streeterville may, in its sole discretion, designate collateral as security for its obligations under the Investor Note, provided that currently there is no collateral evidencing the repayment of such note. In the event (i) of the occurrence of any event of default under the Streeterville Note, (ii) of a breach of any material term, condition, representation, warranty, covenant or obligation of the Company under any agreement entered into with Streeterville along with the Note Purchase Agreement, or (iii) if the Company sells, transfers, assigns, pledges or hypothecates the Investor Note, or attempts to do any of the foregoing, Streeterville is entitled to deduct and offset any amount owing by the Company under the Streeterville Note from any amount owed by Streeterville under the Investor Note (provided that such amount is automatically offset if Streeterville has not exercised its offset right within 30 days prior to the maturity date of the Investor Note). The Investor Note includes customary events of default, subject to cure rights where applicable.

 

The Company engaged Ascendiant Capital Markets, LLC to serve as placement agent for the transaction between the Company and Streeterville in exchange for a commission equal to 7% of the gross cash proceeds received from the sale of the Streeterville Note ($245,000).

 

The Company used a portion of the net proceeds from the sale of the Streeterville Note to repay indebtedness owed to National Bank, which has been repaid in full; and repay amounts owed to the Monaco Trust.

 

December 2020 Underwritten Offering

 

On December 28, 2020, the Company entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Kingswood Capital Markets, division of Benchmark Investments, Inc. (“Kingswood”) and Aegis Capital Corp. (“Aegis”), as representatives of the underwriters name therein (the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell to the Underwriters in a firm commitment underwritten public offering (the “Offering”) an aggregate of 3,080,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, at a public offering price of $2.50 per share. The Company also granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 462,000 shares of common stock to cover over-allotments, if any, which over-allotment option was fully exercised on January 13, 2021. The Offering closed on December 31, 2020.

 

Kingswood and Aegis acted as the book-running managers for the Offering. The shares of common stock sold in the Offering were offered and sold by the Company pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3. The Company paid the Underwriters a cash fee equal to 6% of the aggregate gross proceeds received by the Company in connection with the Offering, paid the Underwriters a non-accountable expense allowance equal to 1% of the aggregate gross proceeds received by the Company in connection with the Offering, and reimbursed certain expenses of the Underwriters.

 

The net proceeds to the Company from the Offering, after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and Offering expenses, were approximately $7.1 million. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to accelerate Longroot Thailand’s internet coin offering platform and our NextTrip platform and call center, to repay outstanding debt obligations (certain of which have already been paid, as discussed above), to pay outstanding obligations owed pursuant to prior acquisition agreements, for the potential acquisition of additional ownership interests in Axion and/or Longroot Cayman (of which additional interests have been purchased as described above), for general corporate purposes and working capital.

 

Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company agreed, subject to certain exceptions, not to offer, issue or sell any shares of common stock or securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for shares of common stock for a period of thirty days following the Offering without the prior written consent of Kingswood and Aegis.

 

In connection with the Offering, each of our officers, directors, and certain holders of our outstanding securities agreed, subject to certain exceptions, not to offer, issue, sell, contract to sell, encumber, grant any option for the sale of or otherwise dispose of any shares of our common stock or other securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for shares of our common stock for a period of thirty days after the Offering is completed, without the prior written consent of Kingswood and Aegis.

NextTrip Formation, Funding Agreement and Operations Agreement

 

Effective on January 12, 2021, Monaker, NextTrip Holdings, LLC, a newly formed Florida limited liability, which is wholly-owned by Monaker (“NextTrip”), HotPlay, and the HotPlay Stockholders, entered into a Subsidiary Formation and Funding Agreement (the “Formation and Funding Agreement”). The entry into the Formation and Funding Agreement was a required condition to closing the HotPlay Exchange Agreement, which required that Monaker transfer all of its pre-existing operations into a newly formed, wholly-owned subsidiary and that Monaker execute an agreement acceptable in form to Monaker and the principal HotPlay Stockholder providing for the operations of NextTrip, including governance and funding requirements associated therewith.

 

According to the Formation and Funding Agreement, Monaker agreed, prior to the closing date of the HotPlay Share Exchange, to transfer all of the assets, operations, material agreements, employees, and goodwill of Monaker relating to travel operations and business (collectively, the “travel operations”) to NextTrip to insulate the travel operations from the remainder of Monaker’s post-closing operations and allow for Monaker’s pre-closing management to continue to manage the travel operations post-closing pursuant to the terms of the NextTrip operating agreement (defined below). The Formation and Funding Agreement also provides for all North American payroll for Monaker’s travel operations to be paid through, and run by, NextTrip.

 

The Formation and Funding Agreement also requires Monaker (which at that time will have acquired 100% ownership of HotPlay), to transfer, within five (5) business days of the closing, no less than $5.8 million (less pre-closing advances (defined below)) of the cash held on the books of HotPlay at the time of closing to NextTrip (the “initial advance”). The initial advance will be available for use by NextTrip to retire debt of NextTrip (and/or debt of Monaker), fund operations, further develop the travel operations, and for such other purposes which are approved by the Board of Managers of NextTrip. “Pre-closing advances” means the aggregate amount of the HotPlay loans. The initial advance shall not be a loan but shall instead be deemed a capital contribution from Monaker to NextTrip.

 

The Formation and Funding Agreement also requires Monaker to advance an additional $10 million to NextTrip in 2021, pursuant to a mutually agreed-upon schedule of advances (the “subsequent advances”, and together with the initial advance, the “advances”). The subsequent advances shall similarly not be a loan, but shall instead be deemed further capital contributions by Monaker to NextTrip.

 

Additionally, as a separate requirement from the requirement to make the advances, Monaker is required to continue to fund all NextTrip expenses and operations, for so long as Monaker owns at least 50% of NextTrip, provided that NextTrip stays within 130% of a budget approved by the Board of Managers of NextTrip on an annual (calendar year) basis (the “budget threshold”). In the event NextTrip exceeds the budget threshold in any calendar year, Monaker shall not be required to fund more than the budget threshold in such calendar year but shall be required to fund the approved budget (in an amount of up to the then applicable budget threshold) in subsequent calendar years. Monaker is also required to promptly pay for or reimburse NextTrip for (at the option of NextTrip), all legal, audit, insurance, employee, administrative work, and other expenses paid or incurred by NextTrip on behalf of Monaker.

 

Under the Funding and Formation Agreement, NextTrip is required to assume all of the contractual and other obligations and liabilities of Monaker incurred before closing, provided that if such formal assumption is deemed too difficult or impracticable by NextTrip, or such formal assumption would trigger any defaults, required consents, or would be subject to any prerequisites, instead of formally assuming such obligations, NextTrip is required to pay such obligations as they come due and according to their terms (as such may be amended and modified from time to time).

 

Additionally, if Monaker’s currently pending lawsuit with IDS, Inc. (“IDS”), results in IDS returning the 1,968,000 shares of restricted common stock of Monaker which were originally issued to IDS in August 2019 (the “IDS Shares”), NextTrip shall, with the approval of the Board of Directors of Monaker, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, be able to use, and have issued for its benefit, such number of shares of Monaker for acquisitions and strategic transactions which benefit NextTrip and the travel operations, at the request of the NextTrip Board of Managers.

 

Finally, the Funding and Formation Agreement provided that NextTrip was required, before the closing, to adopt an operating agreement, which is discussed below, and which was adopted on January 11, 2021.

 

On January 11, 2021, Monaker, as sole-owner of NextTrip adopted the Operating Agreement of NextTrip (the “operating agreement”). The operating agreement sets forth the framework for the governance and operation of NextTrip. The operating agreement includes standard representations and warranties of members of NextTrip, customary indemnification and confidentiality obligations, and other customary and standard terms relating to the governance of limited liabilities companies.

 

The operating agreement provides for a three-person Board of Managers (“Board of Managers”) who manage NextTrip. Of those three members, two of such members are appointed by William Kerby and Donald P. Monaco, the current Chief Executive Officer and director and Chairman of the board of directors of NextTrip, and one of the members of the Board of Directors is selected by Monaker. Such designees can remove the managers they can appoint, replace such members from time to time in their discretion, and choose which persons fill vacancies created on the Board of Managers (to the extent such vacancies relate to positions they have authority to fill).

 

 39 

 

 

The initial members of the Board of Managers of NextTrip are (1) Mr. Kerby, (2) Mr. Monaco, and (3) J. Todd Bonner, a director of HotPlay.

 

The Board of Managers are tasked with creating a budget for NextTrip from time to time, but at least annually. The Managers have authority, without member approval, to have full, complete, and exclusive authority to manage and control the business, affairs, and properties of NextTrip, which includes, among other things, the ability to operate NextTrip and to enter into agreements and contracts, open and maintain bank accounts, borrow money, take actions in connection with the operation of NextTrip’s business, acquire, sell and operate properties and assets, obtain insurance, incur legal and other fees, employ employees and consultants, make expenditures and undertake other decisions or acts.

 

Member approval is required however if the Board of Managers desires to take certain material transactions affecting NextTrip, including to (a) amend the operating agreement or the Articles of Organization of NextTrip; (b) change the character of the business of the company; (c) sell all or substantially all of NextTrip’s assets; (d) mortgage or encumber all or substantially all of NextTrip’s assets; (e) undertake any action that would make it impossible for NextTrip to carry on its business, subject to certain limited exceptions; (f) approve any transaction with any affiliate of NextTrip other than arm’s length terms; (g) make any expenditure greater than $50,000, which is not outlined in an approved budget; or (h) confess a judgment against NextTrip.

 

Mr. Kerby serves as the Chief Executive Officer of NextTrip, and has the authority to appoint employees of NextTrip, and set forth their positions and salaries with NextTrip, and to further provide for the bonuses payable to such persons, provided that such compensation and bonuses do not exceed more than $500,000 in aggregate.

 

The operating agreement also provides that the Board of Managers, in their sole discretion, subject to applicable law, and advice of counsel, may determine that it is in the best interests of NextTrip to spin-off the membership interests of NextTrip held by Monaker to Monaker’s stockholders (a “spin-off” and a “spin-off determination”). In the event of a spin-off determination, the board of directors of Monaker is required to hold a Special Meeting of the board of directors to discuss such spin-off determination (the “spin-off meeting”), and whether or not such spin-off determination is in the best interests of Monaker and its stockholders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is to be presumed that such spin-off is in the best interests of Monaker and its stockholders. In the event the board of directors determines not to move forward with a spin-off, the Board of Managers may make additional spin-off determinations in the future, subject to the obligation of the board of directors of Monaker to approve such spin-offs. If the board of directors of Monaker determines to move forward with the spin-off, the spin-off will proceed according to applicable law, and if necessary, NextTrip will convert into a corporation prior to, or in connection with, such spin-off. Notwithstanding the rights of the Board of Managers above, neither Monaker, NextTrip, or the Board of Managers have any present intention to affect a spin-off of NextTrip.

 

Additionally, if the board of directors of Monaker has determined to proceed with a spin-off, the number of authorized membership interests of NextTrip are automatically increased by 33%, after which time the Board of Managers are authorized to issue additional membership interests of NextTrip to managers, officers, management, employees, or consultants of NextTrip, in their sole discretion, in consideration for services rendered or to be rendered.

 

The operating agreement may only be amended with the majority approval of the Board of Managers and the unanimous approval of the members (i.e., Monaker).

 

Monaker does not anticipate transferring its operations to NextTrip until right before the closing of the HotPlay Share Exchange, and currently NextTrip has no assets or operations.

 

Reinhart Acquisition Agreement

 

On January 15, 2021, the Company entered into a Founding Investment and Subscription Agreement (the “Investment Agreement”) with Reinhart Interactive TV AG, a company organized in Switzerland (“Reinhart”), and Jan C. Reinhart, the founder of Reinhart (“Founder”). The Investment Agreement contemplates the Company acquiring 51% of the ownership of Reinhart, in consideration for a capital contribution of 10,000,000 Swiss Francs (approximately $11.2 million), of which it is contemplated that one-half (approximately $5.6 million), will be paid in cash and one-half will be paid in restricted shares of the Company’s common stock (valued at approximately $5.6 million). The closing of the transactions contemplated by Investment Agreement is to take place on April 1, 2021, or earlier if the conditions to closing are earlier satisfied. Conditions to closing include the Company paying the required capital contribution, approval of the transaction by the board of directors of the Company and Reinhart, and certain requirements and confirmations required by Swiss law. The Investment Agreement includes customary representations and warranties of the parties. We also agreed to reimburse the Founder’s legal fees of up to 30,000 Swiss Francs (approximately $33,670) in connection with the transaction. Additionally, in the event we fail to close the transactions contemplated by the Investment Agreement by April 1, 2021, we agreed to pay the Founder 500,000 Swiss Francs (approximately $560,000), as a break-up fee.

 

Reinhart is in the business of providing a software-based TV and video distribution platform to telecom operators and digital content owners and providing services to telecom operators and digital content owners for user interaction design, as well as software development, deployment and support.

 

In connection with our entry into the Investment Agreement, we entered into a Founding Shareholders’ Agreement with the Founder setting forth certain rules for the governance and control of Reinhart.

 

Additional information regarding the Investment Agreement is disclosed below under “Part II – Other Information—Item 5. Other Information”.

  

Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

 

In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus, which causes the infectious disease known as COVID-19, was reported in Wuhan, China. The World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern” on January 30, 2020 and a global pandemic on March 11, 2020. In March and April, many U.S. states and local jurisdictions began issuing ‘stay-at-home’ orders. For example, the state of Florida, where the Company’s principal business operations are, issued a ‘stay-at-home’ order effective on April 1, 2020, which remained in place, subject to certain exceptions, through June 2020, when the order was gradually lifted. Since that time the U.S., and Florida in particular, have seen rapid increases in the spread of COVID-19. It is currently unclear whether the state of Florida, or the other states, countries or other jurisdictions in which we provide travel services, will issue new or expanded ‘stay-at
