NASCENT BIOTECH, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Nascent Biotech, Inc. (“Nascent” or the “Company”) was incorporated on March 3, 2014 under the laws of the State of Nevada. The Company is actively developing Pritumumab for the treatment of brain cancer and pancreatic cancer. Nascent is also actively researching other cancers that have a high probability of benefiting from the therapeutic effects of Pritumumab because they share a common target. Pritumumab has shown to be very effective at low doses in previous clinical studies in Japan. Nascent is a phase 2 clinical trial biopharmaceutical company that focuses on biologic drug candidates that are preparing for initial clinical testing for the treatment of brain and pancreatic cancer.

 

On March 31, 2017, the Company filed its IND submission with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for clearance to begin Phase I clinical trials. On December 7, 2018, the Company received a letter from the FDA allowing it to use a specific lot of drug substance to begin phase 1 clinical trials. On March 15, 2021, the Company opened phase1 clinical trials. On August 10, 2023 the Company received clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration to commence phase 2 clinical trials of brain cancer.

 

NOTE 2 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. The Company has elected a fiscal year ending on March 31.

 

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements of the Company for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2023. In the opinion of management, the unaudited financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the annual financial statements and reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the financial position and the results of operations for the interim periods presented herein. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any subsequent quarters or for an entire year.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The Company computes net loss per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings per Share, which requires presentation of both basic and diluted loss per share (“EPS”) on the face of the statement of operations. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net loss available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period including stock options and warrants, using the treasury stock method, convertible preferred stock, and convertible debt, using the if-converted method. In computing diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all potentially dilutive common shares if their effect is antidilutive.

 

We have identified the conversion features of certain of our convertible notes payable as derivatives. We estimate the fair value of the derivatives using the American Option Binomial pricing model. We estimate the fair value of the derivative liabilities at the inception of the financial instruments, at the date of conversions to equity and at each reporting date, recording a derivative liability, debt discount, and a gain or loss on change in derivative liabilities as applicable. These estimates are based on multiple inputs, including the market price of our stock, interest rates, our stock price volatility and variable conversion prices based on market prices as defined in the respective agreements. These inputs are subject to significant changes from period to period and to management's judgment; therefore, the estimated fair value of the derivative liabilities will fluctuate from period to period, and the fluctuation may be material.

Revenue recognition

 

In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016–10 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing. The amendments in this Update do not change the core principle of the guidance in Topic 606. Rather, the amendments in this Update clarify the following two aspects of Topic 606: identifying performance obligations and the licensing implementation guidance, while retaining the related principles for those areas. Topic 606 includes implementation guidance on (a) contracts with customers to transfer goods and services in exchange for consideration and (b) determining whether an entity’s promise to grant a license provides a customer with either a right to use the entity’s intellectual property (which is satisfied at a point in time) or a right to access the entity’s intellectual property (which is satisfied over time). The amendments are intended to render more detailed implementation guidance with the expectation to reduce the degree of judgement necessary to comply with Topic 606.

 

ASC Topic 606 prescribes a new five-step model entities should follow in order to recognize revenue in accordance with the core principle. These five steps are:

 

1. Identify the contract(s) with a customer.

2. Identify the performance obligations in the contract.

3. Determine the transaction price.

4. Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract.

5. Recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfied the performance obligations.

 

The Company implemented the transition using the modified retrospective method of transition. The funds are not earned on milestones that have not been reached per the contract. Based on the cut off treatment of the recognition of revenue per the milestones specific to the license agreements, the Company has determined that there are no adjustments in the value of the revenue recognized from these contracts.

 

Derivative debt

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt – Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40). The new ASU eliminates the beneficial conversion and cash conversion accounting models for convertible instruments and supersedes the respective guidance within ASC 470-20 and ASC 740-10-55-51. With the elimination of the cash conversion and beneficial conversion feature models, more instruments will be accounted for as a single instrument rather than having their proceeds allocated between liability and equity accounting units.

 

The amendments in the ASU are effective for public business entities that meet the definition of an SEC filer, excluding entities eligible to be smaller reporting companies as defined by the SEC, for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted at the beginning of an entity’s annual fiscal year, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. The Company is still evaluating the effects of the adoption of the amendment.

 

NOTE 3 - GOING CONCERN

 

The Company’s consolidated financial statements are prepared using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America applicable to a going concern that contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has minimal working capital and has incurred losses from operations. The Company has no revenue to cover its operating costs and the Company will incur additional expenses in the future developing their product. These factors raise substantial doubt about the company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company engages in research and development activities that must be satisfied in cash secured through outside funding. The Company may offer noncash consideration and seek equity lines as a means of financing its operations. If the Company is unable to obtain revenue producing contracts or financing or if the revenue or financing it does obtain is insufficient to cover any operating losses it may incur, it may substantially curtail or terminate its operations or seek other business opportunities through strategic alliances, acquisitions or other arrangements that may dilute the interests of existing stockholders. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTE 4 - RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

On September 1, 2015, the Company entered five-year employment contracts with three of its officers and directors. One of the officers and director resigned as of September 30, 2020. Under the terms of the agreements the Company issued shares of common stock to the officers and directors equaling 11% of the outstanding shares of the Company as of the date of the contracts. As additional future shares are issued, the officers and directors are entitled to additional shares, so their aggregate ownership percentage initially remained at 11% (undated to 18% as noted below) of the outstanding shares of the Company. The agreements were amended on September 1, 2020, as noted below, and the table reflects the amendment to these agreements. The following table sets forth the shares earned under these contracts for the two active officers as of December 31, 2023:

NOTE 7 - WARRANTS

 

During the year ended March 31, 2021 the Company issued 3,700,000 warrants and  used the Binomial Pricing model to estimate the fair value of the warrants as of grant date, using the following key inputs: market prices of the Company’s common stock at dates of grant between $0.08-0.11 per share, conversion price of $0.15, volatility of 312.5%-314.49% and discount rate of 0.14-0.16%. Based on the fair value of the common stock of $437,000 and  value of the warrants of $349,605 the fair value of the warrants was calculated to be 41% of the total value or $303,000. During the year ended March 31, 2021 the valuation resulted in a deemed dividend from the down round calculation of $555,000. As of December 31, 2022  3,700,000 warrants were converted into 3,700,000 shares of common stock for cash at a value for $148,000.

 

On April 7, 2022, the Company issued 500,000 warrants as part of a convertible note issued the same date. The Company used the Binomial  Pricing model to estimate the fair value of the warrants as of grant date using the following key inputs; market prices of the Company’s stock at date of grant  of $0.08 per share, conversion price of $0.12 per share, volatility of 132% and discount of 1.78%. The fair value of the warrants were calculated to be $ 26,000 and was used to allocate the proceeds to the two elements based on the relative fair value of the debt instruments without the warrants and of the warrants at the time of issuance. The portion of the proceeds allocated to the warrants of $21,336 is accounted for as paid in capital. As of September 23, 2022 the 500,000 warrants were converted into 500,000 shares of common stock with a value of $60,000.

 

On August 31, 2022 the Company issued 750,000 warrants as part of a convertible note issued the same date. The Company used the Binomial  Pricing model to estimate the fair value of the warrants as of grant date using the following key inputs; market prices of the Company’s stock at date of grant  of $0.41 per share, conversion price of $0.60 per share, volatility of 137% and discount of 3.50%. The fair value of the warrants were calculated to be $ 188,760 and was used to allocate the proceeds to the two elements based on the relative fair value of the debt instruments without the warrants and of the warrants at the time of issuance. The portion of the proceeds that were allocated to the warrants of $9,902 is accounted for as paid in capital.

On September 2, 2022 the Company issued 250,000 warrants as part of a convertible note issued the same date. The Company used the Binomial Pricing model to estimate the fair value of the warrants as of grant date using the following key inputs; market prices of the Company’s stock at date of grant  of $0.345 per share, conversion price of $0.60 per share, volatility of 137% and discount of 3.47%. The fair value of the warrants were calculated to be $50,273 and was used to allocate the proceeds to the two elements based on the relative fair value of the debt instruments without the warrants and of the warrants at the time of issuance. The portion of the proceeds were allocated to the warrants of $2,484 is accounted for as paid in capital.

 

The warrants contain an anti-dilution clause which become effective if any instrument is issued after the warrant  issuance is converted into common stock at a price lower than the warrant conversion price. During the nine months ended December 31, 2023 the valuation resulted in a deemed dividend from the down round calculation of $550,000 with a recalculated conversion price change to $0.05 per share.

NOTE 8 - CONVERTIBLE DEBT

 

On August 31, 2022 the Company entered into an agreement with an unrelated third party for convertible debentures totaling $1,500,000. The first $500,000 was paid at closing with the second $500,000 paid on September 20, 2022, upon filing of an S-1 Registration, and the third $500,000 paid on September 27, 2022, upon the S-1 becoming effective. Each debenture matures one year from date of issuance. The interest rate for each debenture is six percent (6%) per annum and the Debenture may be converted at the lesser of $0.30 per share or eighty percent (80%) of the lowest VWAP of the Company’s common stock for ten consecutive trading days immediately prior to the conversion date and carried an original discount of 3% of the debenture face value. The Company also issued a warrant to purchase 750,000 shares of the Company’s common stock for a period of two years, expiring on August 30, 2024, at an exercise price of $0.60 per share. As part of the agreement the Company filed an S-1 registration statement registering the underlying common shares for the debenture conversion and the warrants.

 

The initial derivatives were calculated for each debenture as follows:

 

1. Debenture 1- risk free interest of 3.50%, volatility of 137% and expected life of 1.00 years

2. Debenture 2- risk free interest of 4.03%, volatility of 140% and expected life of 1.00 years

3. Debenture 3- risk free interest of 3.98%, volatility of 141% and expected life of 1.00 years

 

During the nine months ended December 31, 2023, the Company issued to the note holder 8,205,263 shares of common stock for the conversion of $300,000 of the convertible notes plus $17,556 of accrued interest.

The debenture owner has agreed not to convert any of the principal or interest to common stock through December 31, 2023 and if the terms of the agreement are met will forgive any interest on the outstanding amounts of the debentures. On October 30, 2023 ,the Company paid $50,000 against the note outstanding per the settlement agreement leaving a balance due on December 31, 2023 of $250,000. On December 15, 2023 the balance of the note of $250,000 was paid in full.

 

On September 2, 2022 the Company entered into an agreement with an unrelated third party for convertible debentures totaling $500,000. The first $250,000 was advanced to the Company at closing with the second $250,000 to be paid to the Company upon the S-1 becoming effective (note next paragraph below). Each debenture matures one year from date of issuance. The interest rate for each debenture is six percent (6%) per annum and the Debenture may be converted at the lesser of $0.30 per share or eighty percent (80%) of the lowest VWAP of the Company’s common stock for ten consecutive trading days immediately prior to the conversion date and carried an original discount of 3% of the debenture face value. The Company also issued a warrant to purchase 250,000 shares of the Company’s common stock for a period of two years, expiring on August 30, 2024, at an exercise price of $0.60 per share. As part of the agreement the Company filed an S-1 registration statement registering the underlying common shares for the debenture conversion and the warrants. The initial derivative was calculated using risk free interest of 3.47%, volatility of 137% and expected life of 1 year.

The conversion of the shares plus the principal payment noted above leaves a balance due of $125,000 in convertible notes plus accrued interest.

 

NOTE 9 - FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS AND DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

As defined in (Financial Accounting Standards Board ASC 820), fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (exit price). The Company utilized the market data of similar entities in its industry or assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, including assumptions about risk and the risks inherent in the inputs to the valuation technique. These inputs can be readily observable, market corroborated, or generally unobservable. The Company classifies fair value balances based on the observability of those inputs. FASB ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1 measurement) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurement).

 

The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are as follows:

 

Level 1 

Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date. Active markets are those in which transactions for the asset or liability occur in sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis. Level 1 primarily consists of financial instruments such as exchange-traded derivatives, marketable securities, and listed equities.

 

 

 

Level 2 

Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets included in level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reported date and includes those financial instruments that are valued using models or other valuation methodologies. These models are primarily industry-standard models that consider various assumptions, including quoted forward prices for commodities, time value, volatility factors, and current market and contractual prices for the underlying instruments, as well as other relevant economic measures. Substantially all of these assumptions are observable in the marketplace throughout the full term of the instrument, can be derived from observable data or are supported by observable levels at which transactions are executed in the marketplace. Instruments in this category generally include non-exchange-traded derivatives such as commodity swaps, interest rate swaps, options, and collars.

 

 

 

Level 3 

– 

Pricing inputs include significant inputs that are generally less observable from objective sources. These inputs may be used with internally developed methodologies that result in management’s best estimate of fair value

As December 31, 2023, the Company believes the amounts reported for cash, payables, accrued liabilities and amounts due to related parties approximate their fair values, due to the nature or duration of these instruments. During the nine months ended December 31, 2023, the Convertible note holder entered into an agreement in which the Company will pay the principal note balance by December 31, 2023. The note holder will not convert any amount of the outstanding notes into common stock unless the principal has not been paid per the agreement. As of December 31, 2023 the note was paid in full.

ITEM 2: MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERTIONS

 

This report contains forward looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Company’s actual results could differ materially from those set forth on the forward-looking statements because of the risks set forth in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, general economic conditions, and changes in the assumptions used in making such forward looking statements.

 

Nascent Biotech, Inc (“Nascent” or the “Company”) was incorporated on March 3, 2014 under the laws of the State of Nevada. The Company is actively developing Pritumumab for the treatment of brain cancer and pancreatic cancer. Nascent is also actively researching other cancers that have a high probability of benefiting from the therapeutic effects of Pritumumab because they share a common target.

 

Nascent is a phase 2 clinical stage biopharmaceutical company that develops monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of various forms of cancer. The Company focuses on biologic drug candidates that are undergoing or have already completed initial clinical testing for the treatment of cancer and then seek to further develop those drug candidates for commercial use. Nascent currently is developing for the treatment of brain cancer and pancreatic cancer both of which we hold orphan drug status granted by the FDA. Nascent has completed phase 1 clinical trials. On August 10, 2023 the Company received clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration to commence phase 2 clinical trials for brain cancer.

 

In addition, Nascent, in collaboration with academic and corporate partners, has asserted the potential for pritumumab to be involved as both a treatment and a vaccine for the SARS-CoV-2 virus (responsible for COVID-19).

 

Overview

 

The Company is focused on developing pritumumab for the treatment of patients with brain cancer malignancies such as gliomas and astrocytomas. Current therapeutic strategies for brain cancer include the use of the chemotherapy, surgical intervention or radiation therapy. Because these treatments have marginal outcomes there exists a need to develop safer, more effective drugs. Temodar-the most commonly used Chemotherapeutic drug used to treat brain cancer, is attributed to only median rates of survival and many brain tumors are eligible for surgery. Moreover, even when removed, most brain tumors come back within one year post-operation. Today, with current standards of care, less than 60% of all brain cancer patients will live past the first year after diagnosis, and less than 35% of patients will live to five years. Glioblastoma, a particularly aggressive form of brain cancer that constitutes 42% of ALL brain and other nervous system cancers, has survival rates of 36.5% at 1 year and 5% at 5 years. (SEER Registry Data, September 15th, 2016 (Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States).

 

On March 31, 2017, the Company filed its IND submission with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for clearance to begin Phase I clinical trials. On December 7, 2018, the Company received a letter from the FDA allowing it to use a specific lot of drug substance to begin phase 1 clinical trials. The Company commenced human clinical trials with a major oncology hospital for brain cancer, both primary and metastatic. Phase 1 clinical trials has been completed. On August 10, 2023 the Company received clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration to commence phase 2 clinical trials of brain cancer.

 

In May of 2020, Nascent announced a research collaboration to study, both in vitro and in vivo (mouse models), the ability of pritumumab to block the SARS-Cov-2 virus from infecting cells. This notion has been raised by a published article in the scientific literature (Yu et al. Journal of Biomedical Science (2016) 23:14 DOI 10.1186/s12929-016-0234-7), which specifically mentioned cell surface vimentin (the protein to which pritumumab binds selectively) as a potential target in the treatment of conditions related to coronaviruses. These preliminary studies are on-going. Further, in May of 2020, Nascent announced a joint collaboration with Manhattan BioSolutions, Inc (NY, NY) to employ Manhattan’s platform, based on the recombinant Mycobacterium bovis Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine, but engineered to target SARS-CoV-2. BCG is a live non-pathogenic bacterium that stimulates diverse innate and adaptive immune responses and is well-known for its long safety track record as a tuberculosis vaccine. Thus, with these collaborations, Nascent is investigating the potential utility of pritumumab as both a treatment for COVID-19 and a preventive vaccine for COVID-19.

Results of Operations

 

The Company recorded zero revenue during the three and nine month periods ended December 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

 

General and administrative expenses for the three and nine month periods ended December 31, 2023 was $101,941 and $271,727 compared to $132,934 and 324,623 for the periods ended December 31,  2022.

This increase in expenses for the three and nine month periods ended December 31, 2023 over the same period in 2022 was due primarily to increased consulting fee of $236,418 from the pricing of the shares issued to management for maintaining the percentage of ownership per their agreements. Expense was also increased by product filling cost of $138,195 for the nine months period ended December 31, 2023 verse none in the same period in 2022. This is the vialing of the bulk drug product for use in the clinical trials.

 

Research and development expenses for the three and nine month periods ended December 31, 2023 was $47,170 and $101,388 compared to $55,875 and $188,503 in the same periods in 2022. Clinical trials costs was $19,102 and $82,467 for the three and nine month periods ended December 31, 2023 compared to 39,627 and $219,155 in the same periods in 2022. Phase 1 clinical trials ended in March 2023. Until the commencing of  phase 2 clinical trials, the expenses for research and development plus clinical trial expenses will be minimal.

 

Total other income expense during the three and nine month periods ended December 31, 2023 was other income of $159,016 and138,744, compared to other expense of $362,294 and $666,974 in the same periods in 2022. Other expense during the nine months in 2023 consisted of interest expense of $362,736, offset by a gain in debt settlement of $50,000 and a gain on the change of fair value of $472,168. Other expenses in the nine months period ended December 31, 2022 consisted of gain in fair value of $634,118, offset by interest expense of $994,738 and original note discount of $329,390.

 

For the three month and nine month periods ended December 31, 2023, our net loss was $205,406 and $1,575,106 compared to a net loss of $837,320 and $2,282,910 for the same periods in 2022. The difference between the periods was due primarily to the loss on original note discount in the nine months period ending December 31, 2022 over the same period in 2023.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company’s liquidity and capital is dependent on the capital it can raise to continue the Company’s testing and clinical trials of its product. The Company projects it must raise approximately $15-20 million to complete its Phase II clinical studies.

 

There are no agreements or understandings about future loans by or with the officers, directors, principals, affiliates, or shareholders of the Company. The Company will continue to raise outside capital through loans, equity sales and possible licensing agreements. These factors raise substantial doubt about the company’s ability to continue as a going concern

 

At December 31, 2023, the Company had working capital of $30,367. Current assets consist of cash of 623,854 and prepaid of $17,442 with current liabilities $610,930 consisting of accounts payable and accrued expense of $483,751and convertible notes, net of discount of $125,000.

 

Net cash used in operating activities in the nine months period ended December 31, 2023 was $834,332 compared to net cash used of $1,400,650 in the same period in 2022. The variance between the same periods in 2023 and 2022 relates mainly to a lower loss in the nine months period ended December 31, 2023 over the same period in 2022.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities for the nine months period ended December 31, 2023 was $1,286,000 compared to net cash provided by financing activities of $1,865,000 in the same period in 2022. Cash provided in the nine months period ended December 31, 2023 consisted of common stock sold for cash of $1,461,000 offset by repayment of convertible notes of $400,000, compared to proceeds from convertible notes of $1,932,000 and warrant conversion of $208,000, offset by payment of convertible notes of $275,000 during the same period in 2022.

As of December 31, 2023, the Company had total assets of $641,296 and total liabilities of $610,929. Stockholders’ equity as of December 31, 2023 was $30,367. This compares to a stockholders’ deficit of $1,296,137 as of March 31, 2023. Liabilities decreased in 2023 mainly as a function of lower convertible notes, net of discount and no derivative liability.

 

NEED FOR ADDITIONAL FINANCING:

 

The Company is engaged in research and development activities that must be satisfied in cash secured through outside funding. The Company will offer noncash consideration and seek equity lines as a means of financing its operations. If the Company is unable to obtain revenue producing contracts or financing or if the revenue or financing it does obtain is insufficient to cover any operating losses it may incur, it may substantially curtail or terminate its operations or seek other business opportunities through strategic alliances, acquisitions or other arrangements that may dilute the interests of existing stockholders.

 

Our current capital needs are estimated to be approximately $15-18 million. This will take us through Phase II clinical trials which is scheduled to begin in in 2024.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We had no off-balance sheet arrangements or guarantees of third party obligations at December 31, 2023

 

Inflation

 

We believe that inflation has not had a significant impact on our operations since inception.

 

ITEM 3: QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURE ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Not applicable.

 

ITEM 4: CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Under the supervision and the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation as of December 31, 2023, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as such term is defined under Rule 13a-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December 31, 2023. Such conclusion reflects the identification of material weakness as follows: (1) lack of accounting proficiency of our chief executive officer who is our sole officer and our principal accounting officer which has resulted in a reliance on part-time outside consultants to perform substantially all of our accounting functions, (2) a lack of adequate segregation of duties and necessary corporate accounting resources in our financial reporting process and accounting function, and (3) lack of control procedures that include multiple levels of review. Until we can remedy these material weaknesses, we have engaged third party consultants and accounting firm to assist with financial reporting.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the nine months ended December 31, 2023 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
