cautionary notice regarding forward-looking statements

 

Statements in this Quarterly Report and in any documents incorporated by reference herein which are not purely historical, or which depend upon future events, may constitute 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 “Exchange Act”). Forward-looking statements generally contain words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “potential,” “project,” “target,” “can,” “could,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “will likely,” “would,” or the negative of such words and/or similar expressions. However, not all forward-looking statements contain these words.

 

Readers should not place undue reliance upon the Company’s forward-looking statements, since such statements speak only as of the date they were made. Such forward-looking statements may refer to events that ultimately do not occur, or may occur to a different extent, or occur at a different time than such forward-looking statements describe. Except to the extent required by federal securities laws, the Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report and in any documents incorporated by reference herein, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. The Company acknowledges that all forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and/or results to differ materially from the events and/or results described in the forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, risks and uncertainties concerning:

 

  Our dependence upon a direct selling system to distribute our products, and the highly competitive and dynamic nature of the direct selling industry;
     
  The potential adverse effect of the loss of a high-level distributor or a significant number of distributors for causes out of our control;
     
  The potential adverse effect upon our sales resulting from recent changes to our sales commission program and potential changes to our sales commission program in the future;
     
  The success of our growth initiatives, including our efforts to attract and retain new customers and our efforts to generate recurring customer orders, which we call “SmartShip” orders;
     
  The success of our initiatives to build brand awareness;
     
  Our ability to anticipate and effectively respond to changes in consumer preferences and buying trends;
     
  The timing and customer acceptance of new products we introduce;
     
  Our ability to attract and retain talented employees and management;
     
  Our ability to effectively manage and control our operating expenses;
     
  Our quarterly financial performance and potential fluctuations therein;
     
  Our ability to generate sustained, positive cash flows from operations with which to fund our working capital needs, including servicing our debt, now and in the future;
     
  Our ability to obtain additional financing with which to implement our business strategies;
     
  Our ability to attract and retain reliable key personalities to successfully promote our products, image and brands, and the potential for negative publicity to affect a key personality engaged in promoting our products, image and brands;
     
  Our ability to maintain a positive image and brand acceptance in the often changing and unpredictable social media environment;
     
  Our dependence on one supplier for a substantial amount of the products we sell and the potential for material disruptions in our supply chain or potential increases in the prices of the products we purchase beyond what we can pass along to our customers;
     
  Our ability to comply with current laws and regulations or our becoming subject to new or more stringent laws and regulations in the future, including applicable laws and regulations in jurisdictions outside the United States;
     
  Our ability to register our trademarks and successfully protect our intellectual property rights;
     
  Our potential unintended infringement on the intellectual property rights of others;
     
  The potential impact if products sold by us were found to be defective in labeling or content;
     
  The costs and effects of litigation and other claims;

 

3
 

 

  Recent product reformulations and/or potential product reformulations in the future could adversely affect demand for our products and our sales in the future;
     
  Potential product liability claims in the future could harm our business;
     
  Our ability to successfully identify acquisition candidates or to successfully finance, complete and integrate desirable acquisitions;
     
  Our ability to expand into foreign markets and to successfully address any resulting exposure to foreign exchange rate fluctuations and other risks inherent to foreign operations;
     
  Our high reliance on the use of information technology and our ability to effectively and cost-efficiently respond to any disruption in our information technology systems and/or any acts of cyberterrorism;
     
  Our ability to effectively and cost-efficiently respond to any natural disasters, epidemics and other health emergencies, or acts of violence or terrorism that may affect our customers and/or our business;
     
  Our ability to comply with the financial reporting requirements contained in U.S. securities laws and regulations and, as such, maintain investor confidence in our financial reporting;
     
  If securities or industry analysts do not publish research or reports about our business, if our operating results do not meet their expectations, or if they adversely change their recommendations regarding our common stock, our stock price and trading volume could remain stagnant or decline;
     
  If we do not maintain an effective system of internal control over financial reporting in the future, we may not be able to accurately report our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows, which may adversely affect investor confidence in us and, as a result, the value of our securities;
     
  Our disclosure controls and procedures may not prevent or detect all errors or acts of fraud;
     
  Because we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on our capital stock in the foreseeable future, capital appreciation, if any, will be our stockholders’ only source of gain;
     
  The potential for future sales and issuances of our common stock and/or rights to purchase our common stock, including pursuant to our equity incentive plans, to result in a material dilution of our stockholders’ percentage ownership and, in turn, in stagnation or decline in the trading price of our stock; and
     
  Our ability to successfully absorb the financial, operational and compliance costs of operating as a public company.

SHARING SERVICES GLOBAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 –DESCRIPTION OF OPERATIONS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Sharing Services Global Corporation (“Sharing Services” or “the Company”) is a holding company, with Elepreneurs Holdings, LLC and Elevacity Holdings, LLC as its main operating subsidiaries. The Company is an emerging growth company that primarily markets and distributes health and wellness products under the Elevate brand through an independent sales force of distributors, or “Elepreneurs,” using a marketing strategy which is a form of direct selling. The Company’s Elevate health and wellness product line was launched in December 2017 and consists of Nutraceutical products that the Company refers to as “D.O.S.E.” (which stands for: Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin and Endorphins).

 

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements included herein have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and note disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted as permitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC, although we believe that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2019.

 

Recent Corporate Name Change

 

In January 2019, Sharing Services, Inc. changed its corporate name to Sharing Services Global Corporation to better reflect the Company’s strategic intent to grow its business globally. The corporate name change was approved by the Company’s stockholders and by its Board of Directors. In connection with the name change, the Company adopted the over-the-counter trading symbol “SHRG.”

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which assumes the Company will be able to realize its assets and settle its liabilities in the ordinary course of its business for the foreseeable future. The Company is an emerging growth company and, prior to its fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2018, the Company had virtually no sales. However, the Company’s net sales and/or gross margin generally have increased each quarter since the December 2017 launch of its Elevate health and wellness product line. For the full fiscal year ended April 30, 2019, cash provided by operations was $6.0 million, on sales of $85.9 million while, for the nine months ended January 31, 2020, cash provided by operations was $7.7 million, on sales of $106.0 million. As of January 31, 2020, cash and cash equivalents were $8.2 million.

 

The Company believes it will be able to fund its working capital needs for the next 12 months with existing cash and cash equivalents, cash to be provided by operations, secured and unsecured debt, including through the issuance of convertible notes and short-term borrowings under financing arrangements, and capital transactions from time to time. Accordingly, the Company believes there is no longer reasonable doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern in the foreseeable future.

 

NOTE 2 –SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

We adhere to the same accounting policies in the preparation of our condensed consolidated interim financial statements as we do in the preparation of our full year consolidated financial statements. As permitted under GAAP, interim accounting for certain expenses is based on full-year assumptions.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior period data to conform with the current period’s presentation.

 

Comprehensive Income

 

For the fiscal periods included in this Quarterly Report, the only component of the Company’s comprehensive income (loss) is the Company’s net earnings (loss). Accordingly, the Company does not present a consolidated statement of comprehensive income.

Use of Estimates and Assumptions

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and disclosures about contingent assets and liabilities, if any. Examples of estimates and assumptions include: the recoverability of accounts receivable, the valuation of inventory, the useful lives of fixed assets, the assessment of long-lived assets for impairment, the measurement and recognition of right-of-use assets and related lease liabilities, the valuation and recognition of derivative liabilities, the measurement and recognition of stock-based compensation expense, the measurement and recognition of revenues, the nature and timing of satisfaction of performance obligations resulting from contracts with customers, the measurement and recognition of uncertain tax positions, and the valuation of loss contingencies, if any. Actual results may differ from these estimates in amounts that may be material to our consolidated financial statements. We believe that the estimates and assumptions used in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements are reasonable.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company derives revenue only from the sale of its products and services and recognizes revenue net of amounts due to taxing authorities (such as local and state sales tax). Our customers place sales orders online and through our “back-office” operations, which creates a contract and establishes the transaction price. The Company recognizes revenue when (or as) it transfers control of the promised goods and services to the customer. With respect to products sold, our performance obligation is satisfied upon receipt of the products by the customer. With respect to subscription-based services, including Elepreneur membership fees, our performance obligation is satisfied over time (up to one year). The timing of our revenue recognition may differ from the time when we invoice and/or collect payment. The Company has elected to treat shipping and handling costs as an activity to fulfill its performance obligations, rather than a separate performance obligation.

 

Deferred revenue associated with product invoiced but not received by customers at the balance sheet date was $1.2 million and $2.5 million as of January 31, 2020 and April 30, 2019, respectively. In addition, as of January 31, 2020 and April 30, 2019, deferred revenue associated with our performance obligations for services offered on a subscription basis was $460,896 and $515,087, and deferred revenue associated with our performance obligations for customers’ right of return was $215,979 and $194,042, respectively. Deferred revenue is expected to be recognized over one year and is reported in accrued and other current liabilities on our consolidated balance sheets.

 

No individual customer, or related group of customers, represents 10% or more of our consolidated net sales. Over 94% of our consolidated net sales are from sales to our customers and/or independent distributors located in the United States. During the nine months ended January 31, 2020, approximately 50% of our consolidated net sales were to recurring customers, approximately 25% were to new customers, and approximately 25% were to our independent distributors.

 

During the nine months ended January 31, 2020, approximately 98% of our consolidated net sales are from our Elevate product line (including approximately 25% from the sales of coffee and coffee-related products and approximately 52% from the sale of all other D.O.S.E. Nutraceutical products). During the nine months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, product purchases from one supplier accounted for approximately 98% and 95%, respectively, of our total product purchases.

 

Sales Commission

 

The Company recognizes sales commission expense, when incurred, in accordance with GAAP. During the three months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, sales commission expense was $14.0 million and $12.7 million, respectively. During the nine months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, sales commission expense was $47.6 million and $26.3 million, respectively. Sales commission expense is included in selling and marketing expenses in our consolidated statements of operations.

 

As of January 31, 2020 and April 30, 2019, accrued sales commission payable was $8,491,081 and $7,402,659, respectively; including $1,290,599 and $1,365,705, respectively, payable with stock warrants.

 

Accounting Changes

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-02, Leases, which requires lessees to report on their balance sheets a right-of-use asset and a lease liability in connection with most lease agreements classified as operating leases under the prior guidance. As permitted, the Company adopted the new guidance, codified as Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 842, Leases, effective May 1, 2019 using the optional cumulative-effect transition method, and adoption resulted in an initial lease liability in the aggregate amount of approximately $1.4 million and right-of-use assets in the same aggregate amount. The Company’s right-of-use assets relate to leases involving office space, automobiles and office equipment, and are amortized over periods ranging from one to three years. The adoption of ASC Topic 842 did not otherwise have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

11
 

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820) which modifies the disclosure requirements on fair value measurements under ASC Topic No. 820, Fair Value Measurement, as amended (“ASC 820”). For public companies, ASU 2018-13 removes (a) the prior requirement to disclose the amount and reason for transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy contained in ASC Topic 820, (b) the policy for timing of transfers between levels, and (c) the valuation processes used for level 3 fair value measurements. For public companies, ASU 2018-13 also adds, among other things, a requirement to disclose the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used in Level 3 fair value measurements. The Company adopted ASU 2018-13 effective February 1, 2020 and such adoption did not have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE 3 – FAIR VALUE MEASURENTS OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

Our financial instruments consist of cash equivalents, if any, accounts receivable, notes receivable, investments in unconsolidated entities, accounts payable, notes payable and derivative liabilities. The carrying amounts of cash equivalents, if any, trade accounts receivable, notes receivable, and accounts payable approximate their respective fair values due to the short-term nature of these financial instruments.

 

Consistent with the valuation hierarchy contained in ASC Topic 820, we categorized certain of our financial assets and liabilities as follows:

 

   January 31, 2020 
   Total   Level 1   Level 2   Level 3 
Assets                    
Accounts receivable, related party  $3,456,751   $-   $-   $3,456,751 
Investments in unconsolidated entities   20,000    -    -    20,000 
Total assets  $3,476,751   $-   $-   $3,476,751

NOTE 4 – EARNINGS (LOSS) PER SHARE

 

We calculate basic earnings (loss) per share by dividing net earnings (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the reporting period. Diluted earnings per share is calculated similarly but reflects the potential impact of outstanding convertible preferred stock, stock warrants and other commitments to issue common stock, including shares issuable upon the conversion of convertible notes, except where the impact would be anti-dilutive.

 

The following table sets forth the computations of basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share:

 

 

   Three Months Ended January 31,   Nine Months Ended January 31, 
   2020   2019   2020   2019 
Net earnings (loss), as reported  $2,379,982   $(2,617,723)  $294,255   $27,442,271 
After tax interest adjustment   1,185    -    35,716    110,639 
Net earnings (loss), if-converted basis  $2,381,167   $(2,617,723)  $329,971   $27,552,910 
Weighted average basic shares   133,272,386    77,603,622    125,535,104    70,437,299 
Dilutive securities and instruments:                    
Convertible preferred stock   45,957,554    -    46,176,467    101,879,204 
Convertible notes   10,406,100    -    54,606,397    54,825,175 
Stock options and warrants   21,760,510    -    20,253,606    5,649,529 
Weighted average diluted shares   211,396,550    77,603,622    246,571,574    232,791,207 
Earnings (loss) per share:                    
Basic  $0.02   $(0.03)  $0.00   $0.39 
Diluted  $0.01   $(0.03)  $0.00   $0.12 

 

The following potentially dilutive securities and instruments were outstanding during the three months ended January 31, 2019 but excluded from the table above because their impact would be anti-dilutive:

 

     
Convertible preferred stock   56,998,750 
Convertible notes   89,186,267 
Stock options and warrants   2,513,333 
Total incremental shares   148,698,350 

 

NOTE 5 – NOTES RECEIVABLE

 

In March and April 2018, the Company entered into certain investment agreements with a third party pursuant to which the Company loaned an aggregate of $275,000 to the third party.

In June 2019, the Company and the third party entered into a loan exchange agreement pursuant to which the Company received a promissory note for $309,309 in settlement of all amounts owed to the Company under the March and April 2018 loans, including loan principal of $275,000 and accrued interest of $34,309. Loans under the June 2019 promissory note bear interest at the rate of 8% per annum.

The Company’s convertible notes are convertible, at the option of the holder, into shares of the Company’s common stock. Borrowings on the Company’s convertible note issued in October 2017 bear interest at the annual rate of 12%.

 

On December 6, 2019, the Company and the holder of the Company’s convertible note dated April 13, 2018 (the “April 2018 Note”) entered into an addendum to the underlying promissory note. Pursuant to the addendum, the parties extended the maturity date of the April 2018 Note to April 13, 2021. In addition, after giving effect to the addendum, the April 2018 Note is non-interest bearing. All other terms of the April 2018 Note remain unchanged. The Company recorded the transaction as an exchange of debt instruments with substantially different terms. In connection therewith, the Company recognized a gain on extinguishment of debt of $13,672. The new debt was recorded net of an initial unamortized debt discount of $13,672, which will be amortized over the term of the April 2018 Note, as amended.

 

During the nine months ended January 31, 2020, the Company settled in full all its obligations under convertible notes with an aggregate principal amount of $755,000, excluding accrued but unpaid interest of $136,315. During the nine months ended January 31, 2020, the holder of one of the Company’s convertible promissory notes converted $28,000 in accrued but unpaid interest into 2,800,000 shares of the Company’s class A common stock pursuant to the terms of the promissory note.

 

During the three months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, interest expense in connection with the Company’s convertible notes was $1,500 and $27,767, respectively, excluding amortization of debt discount of $4,103 and $221,599, respectively. During the nine months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, interest expense in connection with the Company’s convertible notes was $45,211 and $140,049, respectively, excluding amortization of debt discount of $9,141 and $1,066,611, respectively.

NOTE 12 - DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

The Company analyzed the conversion option for derivative accounting consideration under ASC 815 and determined that the Company’s convertible notes and stock warrants outstanding at April 30, 2018 should be classified as a liability, under the ASC 815 guidance, since the conversion options became effective at issuance and there was no explicit limit to the number of shares issuable upon conversion due to contingencies affecting the conversion rate.

 

The Company classifies its derivative liabilities under Level 3 of the three-level hierarchy for measuring fair value (see Note 3 above) and uses a multi-nominal lattice model to calculate the fair value of these liabilities. The multi-nominal lattice model requires six data inputs including: (1) the exercise or conversion price, (2) the expected term (in years), (3) the expected volatility for the Company’s common stock, (4) the current stock price, (5) the risk-free interest rate, and (6) the expected dividend yield. Changes to these inputs could result in a significantly higher or lower fair value measurement.

 

During the three months ended October 31, 2018, the Company repaid the convertible notes with a variable conversion rate, a conversion rate tied to the market price of the Company’s common stock. The remaining convertible notes and warrants outstanding had a fixed conversion rate and, accordingly, the number of shares issuable upon conversion was determinable with certainty. As a result, the Company recognized a decrease in its derivative liability resulting in the beneficial conversion feature associated with the remaining convertible notes and warrants of $1,187,242 (recognized as an increase to additional paid-in capital) and a gain on fair value of derivatives liabilities of $20,015,840. The Company has no similar derivative liabilities outstanding during the nine months ended January 31, 2020.

 

The following weighted-average assumptions were used when valuing our derivative liabilities:

 

    

Nine Months Ended

January 31, 2019

 
Expected term (in years)   1.0-5.0 
Expected average volatility   107% - 237% 
Expected dividend yield   - 
Risk-free interest rate   1.65% - 2.96% 

 

The following table summarizes the changes in the Company’s derivative liabilities during the nine months ended January 31, 2019:

 

Fair Value Measurements Using Significant Unobservable Inputs (Level 3)
Balance – April 30, 2018  $30,488,655 
Addition of new derivatives recognized as debt discounts   325,000 
Other addition of new derivatives   679,032 
Reclassification of derivatives due to tainted instruments   258,132 
Change in fair value of the derivative   (10,547,737)
Reclassification of derivative to additional paid-in capital   (1,187,242)
Change in derivative liabilities recognized as gain on derivative   (20,015,840)
Balance - January 31, 2019  $-

The following table summarizes the (loss) gain on derivative liability included in our consolidated statement of operations:

 

   Nine Months Ended January 31, 2019 
Day-one loss due to derivative liabilities on convertible notes payable and warrants  $(679,032)
Change in derivative liabilities   20,015,840 
Gain from marked-to-market adjustments   10,547,737 
Net gain on change in fair value of derivative liabilities  $29,884,545

Legal Proceedings

 

The Company from time to time is involved in various claims and lawsuits incidental to the conduct of its business in the ordinary course.

As of the date hereof, the shares returned by 212 Technologies remain outstanding and are held under the terms of a custodian agreement for the benefit of the Company.

 

Other Matters

 

In January 2019, the Company became aware of an unliquidated amount of potential liability arising from a series of cash advance loan transactions (the “Loan Transactions”) entered into by eight different lending sources and a Related Party entity (the “debtor entity”) owned and/or controlled by a former Company officer. Without the knowledge of the Company and in contravention of the express provisions of both the Company’s Bylaws and the controlling Nevada Revised Statutes, this former officer also purported to obligate the Company (and two of the Company’s affiliates) to repay the amounts owed by the debtor entities under the Loan Transactions. At this time, the Company has resolved all of the debt associated with the Loan Transactions at a substantial discount from the amounts alleged by the holders of such debt. Additionally, the Company has entered into a comprehensive agreement, secured by substantial assets, with the former officer and the entity owned and/or controlled by the former officer. Pursuant to such agreement, the former officer and the entity owned and controlled by such former officer are obligated jointly and severally to repay the Company all sums expended by the Company in the resolution of the Loan Transactions. The amount expended by the Company, in connection with such resolution, is the sum of $3.4 million. The Company has recorded an accounts receivable of $3.4 million from the former officer and the entity owned and/or controlled by the former officer. This amount is reported in accounts receivable, related party in our consolidated balance sheet.

In June 2019, the Company became aware of a potential liability arising out of certain previous transactions involving the formation and capitalization of two legal entities affiliated with a Company consultant who was, at the time, considered the Company spokesperson. Without the knowledge of the Company and in contravention of the express provisions of both the Company’s Bylaws and the controlling Nevada Revised Statutes, this Company consultant purportedly solicited investment funds from various persons, who at the time, were independent contractors of the Company. While this matter is still currently under investigation, the Company has reason to believe that this Company consultant, possibly acting in concert with others, sought to leverage the assets and resources of the Company in furtherance of these ventures, to their personal pecuniary benefit. Upon learning of these allegations from various of these investors, the Company launched an immediate internal investigation into these transactions. In addition, the Company secured the services of a Dallas-based law firm with experience in financial impropriety and forensic investigations to assist in that process. The Company believes that it is probable that these actions have resulted in a material loss to the investing parties and is evaluating the potential exposure of these events to the Company. The Company is continuing to finalize its evaluation and to pursue settlements with the impacted investing parties.

 

On July 26, 2019, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries entered into a Settlement Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Company co-founder and former consultant Robert Oblon.

On August 30, 2019, the Company ceased making the installment payments and filed a lawsuit against Mr. Oblon claiming, among other things, Mr. Oblon’s breach of contract related to this Agreement, as further discussed below. During the three and nine months ended January 31, 2020, the Company made payments under the Agreement of $0.0 and $235,000, respectively.

On March 28, 2019, Elepreneur, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and Jordan Brock, a co-founder and former officer of the Company, entered into a Founder Consulting Agreement pursuant to which Mr. Brock agreed to provide certain business consulting services to the Company. Under the terms of the Founder Consulting Agreement, the Company agreed to pay Mr. Brock a consultancy fee at the rate of $15,000 per month. Effective as of July 15, 2019, the Company and Mr. Brock amended the Founder Consulting Agreement which resulted in the increase of the consultancy fee to $37,000 per month in exchange for Mr. Brock’s willingness to forgo significant previously negotiated income-earning opportunities with the Company. During the three and nine months ended January 31, 2020, the Company made payments under the Founder Consulting Agreement of $111,000 and $248,500, respectively.

 

In July 2019, Pruvit Ventures, Inc. filed a lawsuit against Elevacity U.S., LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, alleging breach of contract by Elevacity.

In August 2019, Entrepreneur Media, Inc. (“EMI”) notified the Company that EMI believes that the Company’s pending trademark application for “Elepreneurs” would confuse consumers due to the purported similarity to EMI’s existing trademark for the word “Entrepreneur.” The Company believes that this claim is without merit and intends to vigorously defend its trademark application. EMI has reached out to the Company and the parties are now engaged in dialogue intended to achieve a possible amicable resolution.

 

In August 2019, the Company filed a lawsuit in the District Court of Collin County, Texas against Kenyatto M. Jones, Bear Bull Market Dividends, Inc. and Research and Referral, BZ for breach of contract, statutory fraud in a stock transaction, and violations of the Texas Securities Act. The three defendants purport to be beneficial owners of shares of the Company’s equity securities, which purported ownership is the subject of the referenced lawsuit. The relief sought in the lawsuit includes both recovery of damages and rescission of the underlying shares of the Company’s equity securities. Defendants Bear Bull and Jones filed a Motion to Transfer the complaint in September 2019. A hearing on the Defendants’ Motion to Transfer has been set for April 2, 2020.

 

On August 30, 2019, the Company and certain of its affiliated entities filed a lawsuit in the District Court of Collin County, Texas against Company co-founder and former consultant, Robert Oblon. The lawsuit claims breach of contract related to the Settlement Agreement dated July 26, 2019 discussed above, tortious interference with business relationships, and misappropriation of trade secrets, and sought injunctive relief. The Company and such affiliated entities filed an amended petition in September 2019 and were awarded temporary injunctive relief protecting their intellectual property. The Company and such affiliated entities filed a second amended petition in December 2019 and were awarded injunctive relief requiring the turnover of certain intellectual and other property to the Company. Please see Note 17 below.

On October 1, 2019, the Company filed a complaint in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada entitled Sharing Services Global Corporation v. Bear Bull Market Dividends, Inc., Alchemist Holdings, LLC, Kenyatto M. Jones, et al. The lawsuit asserts that the Certificate of Designation for its Series B Preferred Stock filed on or about April 24, 2017 (the “Defective Certificate”) was in contravention of both the Company’s Articles of Incorporation and Nevada law. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that the Defective Certificate was improperly approved through the self-dealing actions of certain former Company executives, working in collusion with outside shareholders. The lawsuit seeks relief in the form of an injunction enjoining the defendants from attempting to enforce the provisions of the Defective Certificate and a declaratory judgment that will invalidate the improper portions of the Defective Certificate. The lawsuit also requests declaratory judgment relief regarding the terms of the Amended and Restated Certificate of Designation filed by the Company on or about September 26, 2019 (the “Amended Certificate”) which seeks to correct the improper provisions of the Defective Certificate and to properly realign the rights of the shareholders which were improperly diminished by the terms of the Defective Certificate. The District Court of Clark County issued a default judgment against Defendant Bear Bull Market Dividends, Inc. on November 14, 2019 and against Defendant Kenyatto M. Jones on November 15, 2019. The Company is in negotiations with Defendant Alchemist Holdings, LLC and anticipates that a favorable outcome will be reached in connection with those negotiations.

The Company markets and distributes health and wellness products that are sold under the Elevate brand through a sales force of independent distributors, or Elepreneurs, using a marketing strategy which is a form of direct selling.

The Company had no significant sales history prior to December 2017, when the Company launched its current Elevate health and wellness product line. The Company’s Elevate product line consists of Nutraceutical products that the Company refers to as “D.O.S.E.” (an acronym for the four mood-enhancing hormones that our body produces: Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin and Endorphins). The launch of this product line accelerated the Company’s growth and enabled the Company to expand its consolidated sales volume and operations at a rapid pace.

 

Recent Corporate Name Change

 

In January 2019, Sharing Services, Inc. changed its corporate name to Sharing Services Global Corporation to better reflect the Company’s strategic intent to grow its business globally. The corporate name change was approved by the Company’s stockholders and its Board.

 

Convertible Notes and Borrowing Under Short-term Financing Arrangements

 

Historically, the Company has funded a substantial portion of its liquidity and cash needs through the issuance of convertible notes and borrowings under short-term financing arrangements, and through the intermittent issuance of equity securities. See “Liquidity and Capital Resources” below for additional information about the Company’s convertible notes and borrowings under short-term financing arrangements.

 

Information Technology System Upgrade

 

During the nine months ended January 31, 2020, the Company conducted a comprehensive assessment of its principal information technology system, with a view of implementing a system upgrade that can accommodate the Company’s current and anticipated growth. We expect to implement a system upgrade in the calendar year 2020, at a projected cost of approximately $200,000.

Results of Operations

 

The Three Months Ended January 31, 2020 compared to the Three Months Ended January 31, 2019

 

Net Sales

 

For the three months ended January 31, 2020, our consolidated net sales increased by $5.7 million, or 22%, to $31.6 million, compared to the three months ended January 31, 2019. This increase reflects the favorable impact of selective price increases (implemented during the second half of the fiscal year 2019 and during the nine months ended January 31, 2020), partially offset by a lower aggregate number of units sold in the three months ended January 31, 2020, compared to the three months ended January 31, 2019.

 

During the three months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company derived approximately 98% and 97%, respectively, of its consolidated net sales from its Elevate health and wellness products launched in December 2017. During the three months ended January 31, 2020, approximately 50% of our consolidated net sales were to recurring customers (which we refer to as “SmartShip” sales), approximately 25% were to new customers and approximately 25% were to our independent distributors.

 

Gross Profit

 

For the three months ended January 31, 2020, our consolidated gross profit was $22.1 million, compared to $17.6 million for the three months ended January 31, 2019. For the three months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, our consolidated gross margin was 69.9% and 67.8%, respectively. During the three months ended January 31, 2020, our consolidated gross margin mainly reflects selective price increases implemented during the second half of the fiscal year 2019 and during the nine months ended January 31, 2020 and a favorable shift in product mix (towards the sale of products with a relatively higher average unit price) resulting from changes costumer preferences in the ordinary course of business.

 

Selling and Marketing Expenses

 

For the three months ended January 31, 2020, our consolidated selling and marketing expenses increased to $14.3 million, or 45.1% of consolidated net sales, compared to $13.4 million, or 51.7% of consolidated net sales, for the three months ended January 31, 2019. The increase in consolidated selling and marketing expenses is mainly due to higher sales commissions of $1.3 million, which was due to an increase in our sales commission payout rate resulting from a new distributor compensation plan implemented in August 2019. This increase was partially offset by lower promotional trade show and sales convention expenses.

General and Administrative Expenses

 

For the three months ended January 31, 2020, our consolidated general and administrative expenses (which include employee compensation and benefits, share-based compensation, professional fees, rent and other occupancy costs, certain consulting fees, telephone and information technology expenses, insurance premiums, and other administrative expenses) decreased to $5.2 million, or 16.6% of consolidated net sales, compared to $6.3 million, or 24.1% of consolidated net sales, for the three months ended January 31, 2019. The decrease in consolidated general and administrative expenses primarily was due to lower stock-based compensation expense of $3.3 million, partially offset by higher employee compensation and benefits of $2.2 million.

 

Interest Expense, Net

 

For the three months ended January 31, 2020, our consolidated interest expense was $12,267, excluding interest of $33,007 associated with Type B lease obligations (as defined by GAAP) and amortization of debt discount of $4,103. Consolidated interest expense of $12,267 was almost entirely associated with short-term borrowings under financing arrangements.

 

For the three months ended January 31, 2019, our consolidated interest expense was $223,874, excluding amortization of debt discount of $221,599 and interest income of $8,318. Consolidated interest expense of $223,874 consisted of $196,107 associated with short-term borrowings under financing arrangements and $27,767 associated with our convertible notes.

 

Interest Income, Related Party

 

For the three months ended January 31, 2020, interest income on accounts receivable, related party was $67,520. For the three months ended January 31, 2019, there was no comparable amount.

The Company believes it is probable it will utilize its available net operating losses in the foreseeable future and, for the three months ended January 31, 2020, recognized a provision for income taxes of $225,000. See Note 2 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in ITEM 8 “Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” contained in our Annual Report for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2019 for more information.

The Nine Months Ended January 31, 2020 compared to the Nine Months Ended January 31, 2019

 

Net Sales

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2020, our consolidated net sales increased by $49.1 million to $106.0 million, compared the nine months ended January 31, 2019. This increase reflects mainly the accelerated growth of our business following the 2007 launch of our Elevate health and wellness product line and the favorable impact of selective price increases (implemented during the second half of the fiscal year 2019 and during the nine months ended January 31, 2020).

 

24
 

 

During the nine months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company derived approximately 98% and 97%, respectively, of its consolidated net sales from its Elevate health and wellness products launched in December 2017. During the nine months ended January 31, 2020, approximately 50% of our consolidated net sales were to recurring customers (which we refer to as “SmartShip” sales), approximately 25% were to new customers and approximately 25% were to our independent distributors.

 

Gross Profit

For the nine months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, our consolidated gross margin was 70.7% and 64.6%, respectively. During the nine months ended January 31, 2020, our consolidated gross margin benefited from economies of scale, due to an increase in the volume of product shipped compared to the volume of product shipped during the nine months ended January 31, 2019, and from selective price increases implemented during the second half of the fiscal year 2019 and during the nine months ended January 31, 2020.

 

Selling and Marketing Expenses

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2020, our consolidated selling and marketing expenses increased to $49.1 million, or 46.3% of consolidated net sales, compared to $27.6 million, or 48.6% of consolidated net sales, for the nine months ended January 31, 2019. The increase in consolidated selling and marketing expenses is mainly due to higher sales commissions of $21.3 million (which reflects increases in our sales commission payout rate implemented in November 2018 and in August 2019) and incremental marketing expense of $0.2 million, partially offset by lower promotional trade show and sales convention expenses.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2020, our consolidated general and administrative expenses (which include employee compensation and benefits, share-based compensation, professional fees, rent and other occupancy costs, certain consulting fees, telephone and information technology expenses, insurance premiums, and other administrative expenses) increased to $19.4 million, or 18.3% of consolidated net sales, compared to $10.0 million, or 17.6% of consolidated net sales, for the nine months ended January 31, 2019. The increase in consolidated general and administrative expenses primarily was due to higher employee compensation and benefits of $5.7 million, higher stock-based compensation expense of $2.2 million, higher legal and other professional fees of $1.0 million, incremental expenses mainly associated with our ongoing IT system upgrades of $0.4 million, and higher insurance expense, no-capitalizable information technology expense and other corporate expenses. This increase was partially offset by lower consulting fees of $0.4 million.

Consolidated interest expense of $379,440 consisted of $333,559 associated with short-term borrowings under financing arrangements and $45,881 associated with our convertible notes.

For the nine months ended January 31, 2019, the change in the fair value of our derivative liabilities resulted in a net gain of $29.9 million. The Company accounts for the conversion features of its convertible notes, stock options and stock warrants under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic No. 815, Derivatives and Hedging. During the nine months ended January 31, 2020, the Company had no derivative liabilities.

 

Provision for Income Taxes

 

During its fiscal year ended April 30, 2019, the Company’s consolidated operating loss was $1.1 million. During the nine months ended January 31, 2020, the Company’s consolidated operating earnings were $6.5 million. The Company believes it is probable it will utilize its available net operating losses in the foreseeable future and, for the nine months ended January 31, 2020, recognized a provision for income taxes of $1.6 million. See Note 2 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in ITEM 8 “Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” contained in our Annual Report for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2019 for more information.

 

Net Earnings and Earnings per Share

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2020, our consolidated net earnings were $294,255, compared to $27.4 million for the nine months ended January 31, 2019 (see Net Change in Fair Value of Derivative Liabilities above). For the nine months ended January 31, 2020, diluted earnings per share were $0.00, compared to $0.12 for the nine months ended January 31, 2019.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We broadly define liquidity as our ability to generate sufficient cash, from internal and external sources, to meet our obligations and commitments. We believe that, for this purpose, liquidity cannot be considered separately from capital resources.

 

Working Capital

 

As of January 31, 2020, cash and cash equivalents were $8.2 million. Based upon the current level of operations and anticipated investments necessary to grow our business, we believe that existing cash balances and anticipated funds from operations will likely be sufficient to meet our working capital requirements, and to fund potential acquisitions and capital expenditures, including potential investments in information technology, over the next 12 months. However, when needed to compensate for any temporary fluctuations in our working capital needs, compared to our operating cash flows, we may obtain occasional additional financing through the issuance of equity securities and secured and unsecured debt, including borrowings under convertible notes and short-term financing arrangements.

 

Historical Cash Flows

 

Historically, our primary sources of cash have been capital transactions involving the issuance of equity securities and secured and unsecured debt (See “Recent Issuances of Equity Securities” and “Short-term Borrowings and Convertible Notes” below) and cash flows from operating activities; and our primary uses of cash have been for operating activities, capital expenditures, acquisitions, net cash advances to related parties, and debt repayments in the ordinary course of our business.

 

The following table summarizes our cash flow activities for the nine months ended January 31, 2020, compared to the nine months ended January 31, 2019:

 

   Nine Months Ended January 31, 
   2020   2019   Increase (Decrease) 
Net cash provided by operating activities  $7,683,446   $826,402   $6,857,044 
Net cash used in investing activities   (156,000)   (324,801)   (168,801)
Net cash (used in) provided by financing activities   (3,257,185)   1,633,809    4,890,994 
Net increase in cash and cash equivalents  $4,270,261   $2,135,410   $2,134,851

Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities

 

Net cash provided by operating activities increased by $6.9 million for the nine months ended January 31, 2020, compared to the nine months ended January 31, 2019. This increase was mainly due to an increase in profitability of $8.2 million, excluding non-cash items, such as depreciation and amortization, change in fair value of derivative liabilities, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of debt discount, losses on impairment of investments in unconsolidated entities and a note receivable, and estimated settlement liability. This increase was partially offset by net changes in operating assets and liabilities of $1.4 million.

 

Net Cash Used in Investing Activities

 

Net cash used in investing activities decreased by $168,801 for the nine months ended January 31, 2020, compared to the nine months ended January 31, 2019. This decrease was due to change in accounts receivable from related parties of $95,739, lower capital expenditures of $53,062, and a $20,000 decrease in cash paid for acquisitions.

 

Net Cash (Used in) Provided by Financing Activities

 

Net cash used in financing activities increased by $4.9 million for the nine months ended January 31, 2020, compared to the nine months ended January 31, 2019. This increase was mainly due to higher net repayments ($4.7 million) of borrowings under short-term financing arrangements and convertible promissory notes, and due to lower proceeds from issuances of stock.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.

 

The Company is a Smaller Reporting Company, as defined in Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act, and, accordingly, is not required to provide the information called for by this Item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Controls Evaluation and Related CEO and CFO Certifications. Our management, with the participation of our principal executive officer (“CEO”) and principal financial officer (“CFO”), conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of January 31, 2020.

 

Certifications of our CEO and our CFO, which are required in accordance with Rule 13a-14 of the Exchange Act, are attached as exhibits to this Quarterly Report. This “Controls and Procedures” section discusses the above-described Certifications and the evaluation of “disclosure controls” referred to therein. Accordingly, this section should be read in conjunction with such Certifications.

 

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls. We do not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all errors and all fraud. Any system of controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the system will be met. Because of the limitations in all such systems, no evaluation can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud (if any) within the Company will be detected. Furthermore, because the design of any system of controls and procedures is based in part upon assumptions about the likelihood of future events, there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Because of these inherent limitations in a cost-effective system of controls and procedures, misstatements and/or omissions due to error or fraud may occur undetected.

 

Scope of the Controls Evaluation. The above-described evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures included a review of (a) their objectives and design, (b) our implementation of the controls and procedures and (c) the effect of the controls and procedures upon the information generated for this Quarterly Report. In the course of the evaluation, we sought to identify whether we had any data errors, control problems or acts of fraud and sought to confirm that necessary corrective action, including process improvement, followed. We perform this type of evaluation on a quarterly basis so that conclusions concerning the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures can accompany our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and our Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Conclusions regarding Disclosure Controls. Based upon the aforementioned evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures, our CEO and CFO concluded that, as of January 31, 2020, we maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are effective in providing reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our CEO and CFO, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting. During our most recent fiscal quarter, there have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

We implemented internal controls to ensure we adequately evaluated our lease agreements and properly implemented the new lease accounting standard effective May 1, 2019. There were no significant changes in our internal control over financial reporting as a result of implementation of this new standard.

PART II—OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

The Company from time to time is involved in various claims and/or negotiations incidental to the ordinary course of its business. We do not believe that the ultimate resolution of these matters will have a material adverse impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

In January 2019, the Company became aware of an unliquidated amount of potential liability arising from a series of cash advance loan transactions (the “Loan Transactions”) entered into by eight different lending sources and a Related Party entity (the “debtor entity”) owned and/or controlled by a former Company officer. Without the knowledge of the Company and in contravention of the express provisions of both the Company’s Bylaws and the controlling Nevada Revised Statutes, this former officer also purported to obligate the Company (and two of the Company’s affiliates) to repay the amounts owed by the debtor entities under the Loan Transactions. At this time, the Company has resolved all of the debt associated with the Loan Transactions at a substantial discount from the amounts alleged by the holders of such debt. Additionally, the Company has entered into a comprehensive agreement, secured by substantial assets, with the former officer and the entity owned and/or controlled by the former officer. Pursuant to such agreement, the former officer and the entity owned and controlled by such former officer are obligated jointly and severally to repay the Company all sums expended by the Company in the resolution of the Loan Transactions. The amount expended by the Company, in connection with such resolution, is the sum of $3.4 million. The Company has recorded an accounts receivable of $3.4 million from the former officer and the entity owned and/or controlled by the former officer. This amount is reported in accounts receivable, related party in our consolidated balance sheet.

 

In June 2019, the Company became aware of a potential liability arising out of certain previous transactions involving the formation and capitalization of two legal entities affiliated with a Company consultant who was, at the time, considered the Company spokesperson. Without the knowledge of the Company and in contravention of the express provisions of both the Company’s Bylaws and the controlling Nevada Revised Statutes, this Company consultant purportedly solicited investment funds from various persons, who at the time, were independent contractors of the Company. While this matter is still currently under investigation, the Company has reason to believe that this Company consultant, possibly acting in concert with others, sought to leverage the assets and resources of the Company in furtherance of these ventures, to their personal pecuniary benefit. Upon learning of these allegations from various of these investors, the Company launched an immediate internal investigation into these transactions. In addition, the Company secured the services of a Dallas-based law firm with experience in financial impropriety and forensic investigations to assist in that process. The Company believes that it is probable that these actions have resulted in a material loss to the investing parties and is evaluating the potential exposure of these events to the Company. The Company is continuing to finalize its evaluation and to pursue settlements with the impacted investing parties.

 

On July 26, 2019, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries entered into a Settlement Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Company co-founder and former consultant Robert Oblon. Pursuant to the Agreement and in compromise of a dispute concerning a prior contractual obligation and various competing claims, the Company agreed to pay Mr. Oblon the aggregate amount of $2.2 million, payable in 96 equal semi-monthly installments, and stock warrants to purchase up to 7.0 million restricted shares of the Company’s common stock, subject to limiting conditions. On August 30, 2019, the Company ceased making the installment payments and filed a lawsuit against Mr. Oblon claiming, among other things, Mr. Oblon’s breach of contract related to this Agreement, as further discussed below. During the three and nine months ended January 31, 2020, the Company made payments under the Agreement of $0.0 and $235,000, respectively. The Company has recognized an estimated settlement liability of $2.9 million in connection with the Agreement. Please see the last paragraph in this section.

 

In July 2019, Pruvit Ventures, Inc. filed a lawsuit against Elevacity U.S., LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, alleging breach of contract by Elevacity. Elevacity has denied the Plaintiff’s claim. Discovery was propounded on the Plaintiff specifically related to the alleged act of wrong-doing, responses were received by the Company on December 6, 2019 and the Company is currently evaluating the responses.

 

In August 2019, Entrepreneur Media, Inc. (“EMI”) notified the Company that EMI believes that the Company’s pending trademark application for “Elepreneurs” would confuse consumers due to the purported similarity to EMI’s existing trademark for the word “Entrepreneur.” The Company believes that this claim is without merit and intends to vigorously defend its trademark application. EMI has reached out to the Company and the parties are now engaged in dialogue intended to achieve a possible amicable resolution.

On August 30, 2019, the Company and certain of its affiliated entities filed a lawsuit in the District Court of Collin County, Texas against Company co-founder and former consultant, Robert Oblon. The lawsuit claims breach of contract related to the Settlement Agreement dated July 26, 2019, tortious interference with business relationships, and misappropriation of trade secrets, and sought injunctive relief. The Company and such affiliated entities filed an amended petition in September 2019 and were awarded temporary injunctive relief protecting their intellectual property. The Company and such affiliated entities filed a second amended petition in December 2019 and were awarded injunctive relief requiring the turnover of certain intellectual and other property to the Company. Please see the last paragraph in this section.

 

In August 2019, the Company filed a lawsuit in the District Court of Collin County, Texas against Kenyatto M. Jones, Bear Bull Market Dividends, Inc. and Research and Referral, BZ for breach of contract, statutory fraud in a stock transaction, and violations of the Texas Securities Act. The three defendants purport to be beneficial owners of shares of the Company’s equity securities, which purported ownership is the subject of the referenced lawsuit. The relief sought in the lawsuit includes both recovery of damages and rescission of the underlying shares of the Company’s equity securities. Defendants Bear Bull and Jones filed a Motion to Transfer the complaint in September 2019. A hearing on the Defendants’ Motion to Transfer has been set.

 

As of September 16, 2019, the Company and 212 Technologies, LLC (“212 Technologies”) entered into a Release and Settlement Agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”). Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, the parties: (i) rescinded a certain “Stakeholder & Investment Agreement” dated May 21, 2017 (resulting in the return of 5,628,750 shares of the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock by 212 Technologies and the return of a 24% ownership stake in 212 Technologies by the Company) and (ii) terminated a certain “Software License Agreement” dated June 12, 2018 (the “SLA”) by and between 212 Technologies and Elepreneurs, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Elepreneurs”). In connection with the Settlement Agreement, Elepreneurs agreed to pay 212 Technologies the amount of $425,000 and to dismiss, with prejudice, a certain lawsuit it had previously filed concerning the functionality of the mobile application produced by 212 Technologies under the SLA, and the parties reached mutually accommodating terms and resolved all issues between their respective companies. As of the date hereof, the shares returned by 212 Technologies remain outstanding and are held under the terms of a custodian agreement for the benefit of the Company.

 

On October 1, 2019, the Company filed a complaint in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada entitled Sharing Services Global Corporation v. Bear Bull Market Dividends, Inc., Alchemist Holdings, LLC, Kenyatto M. Jones, et al. The lawsuit asserts that the Certificate of Designation for its Series B Preferred Stock filed on or about April 24, 2017 (the “Defective Certificate”) was in contravention of both the Company’s Articles of Incorporation and Nevada law. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that the Defective Certificate was improperly approved through the self-dealing actions of certain former Company executives, working in collusion with outside shareholders. The lawsuit seeks relief in the form of an injunction enjoining the defendants from attempting to enforce the provisions of the Defective Certificate and a declaratory judgment that will invalidate the improper portions of the Defective Certificate. The lawsuit also requests declaratory judgment relief regarding the terms of the Amended and Restated Certificate of Designation filed by the Company on or about September 26, 2019 (the “Amended Certificate”) which seeks to correct the improper provisions of the Defective Certificate and to properly realign the rights of the shareholders which were improperly diminished by the terms of the Defective Certificate. The District Court of Clark County issued a default judgment against Defendant Bear Bull Market Dividends, Inc. on November 14, 2019 and against Defendant Kenyatto M. Jones on November 15, 2019. The Company is in negotiations with Defendant Alchemist Holdings, LLC and anticipates that a favorable outcome will be reached in connection with those negotiations.

 

On February 27, 2020, the Company filed a lawsuit in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada against Kenyatto M. Jones and Bear Bull Market Dividends, Inc. regarding the matters and courses of action set out in the previously discussed lawsuit filed in August 2019 in the District Court of Collin County, Texas. In the Clark County Nevada lawsuit, the Company is seeking (a) rescission of the stock transactions described therein, (b) actual, consequential and incidental damages, (c) punitive/exemplary damages, as well as (d) declaratory and injunctive relief.

 

Effective as of February 28, 2020, (a) the Company and the relevant subsidiaries; (b) Robert Oblon (“Oblon”), a Co-Founder of the Company; (c) Jordan Brock, a Co-Founder of the Company; (d) certain officers and directors of the Company; and (e) certain other corporate parties entered into a Multi-Party Settlement Agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) pursuant to which the foregoing parties agreed to settle all prior disputes among them. This Settlement also resulted in an Order of Dismissal entered by various courts in Denton and Collin County, Texas dismissing all litigation matters with prejudice, including an order dated March 3, 2020 vacating the two previously reported Show Cause Orders. Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the Company agreed to pay Oblon an aggregate amount of $2.3 million and to issue to Oblon 10.0 million restricted shares of its Class A common stock, $0.0001 par value. In connection with the Settlement Agreement, the parties also exchanged comprehensive, reciprocal, mutual releases. In addition, the Company and Oblon, terminated the previously announced July 26, 2019 settlement agreement between them.

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

In addition to the factors contained in ITEM 1A, “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2019, you should consider the following risk factors:

 

We are a party to lawsuits and other claims that may result in adverse outcomes.

 

We are subject to a variety of claims and lawsuits. These claims may arise from a wide variety of business practices and initiatives, including acquisition-related contingencies, disputes between the Company and certain former officers, disputes between the Company and certain shareholders, and disputes between certain Company founders, as further detailed elsewhere in this Quarterly Report. Adverse outcomes in any or all of these claims may result in significant monetary damages or injunctive relief that could adversely affect our business. The litigation and other claims are subject to inherent uncertainties and management’s view of these matters may change in the future. A material adverse impact in our consolidated financial statements could occur for the period in which the effect of an unfavorable outcome becomes probable and reasonably estimable.

 

Changes to our sales compensation plan could be negatively received by members of our sales force, could fail to achieve the desired long-term goals and could adversely impact future sales.

 

We modify aspects of our sales compensation plan from time to time to keep our sales compensation plan competitive and attractive to our existing and future sales force, to address changing market conditions, to provide incentives that we believe will help grow our business and to conform to changing government regulations, among other reasons. For example, we modified our compensation plan in the fiscal year 2019 and again in August 2019. In addition, we may be required to modify our sales compensation plan from time to time to comply with additional regulations in the future. Changes to our sales compensation plan, including changes perceived to reduce sales commissions earned by our sales force, could be negatively received by our sales force, could fail to achieve the desired long-term goals, and could adversely impact our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

 

Past or future reformulations of our products, including as a result of potential governmental enforcement action, could be negatively received by our sales force and customers and adversely impact future sales.

 

As part of our commitment to continuously improve our products, we introduce product reformulations and other product enhancements from time to time. In addition, we may be required to modify our product formulations from time to time to comply with additional regulations in the future or potential governmental enforcement action. Changes to our product formulations, whether or not as a result of potential governmental enforcement action, could be negatively received by our sales force and customers, and could adversely impact our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
