Pulse Evolution Group, Inc. (formerly known as Recall Studios, Inc.) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Florida in February 2009 under the name York Entertainment, Inc. On February 28, 2019, the Company's corporate name was changed to Pulse Evolution Group, Inc., in recognition of the global market reputation of its major operating subsidiary, Pulse Evolution Corporation, and its stock symbol was changed to “DGLF” in recognition of the Company's focus on ‘Digital Life'.
Pulse Evolution Group, Inc. is a developer of hyper-realistic digital humans - computer generated assets that can be distributed across the full spectrum of traditional media and emerging display technologies, including live entertainment, virtual reality, augmented reality, mobile, interactive and artificial intelligence applications. The Company's business plan is to generate revenues through the development and deployment of digital human characters, and related software, but also through roll-up acquisitions within the digital human industry. The Company believes it has the opportunity to make strategic acquisitions of technology and revenue-generating companies, to become a dominant global leader in a sizable and lucrative digital human industry that is, thus far, largely unrecognized as an industry.
On August 8, 2018, the Company entered into a share exchange agreement to acquire up to 100% of Evolution AI Corporation (“EAI”), a development stage artificial intelligence company, which included EAI's 58% interest in Pulse Evolution Corporation (“PEC”). PEC is a globally recognized pioneer in the development of hyper-realistic digital humans for live shows, virtual reality, augmented reality, holographic, 3D stereoscopic, web, mobile, interactive and artificial intelligence applications. PEC's principals are most popularly known for producing some of the most visually stunning digital humans in the history of entertainment, including the Academy Award lead character in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), the digital alter-ego of Jeff Bridges in Tron: Legacy (2010), the holographic performance of ‘Virtual Tupac Shakur' at the Coachella Valley Music Festival (2012), and ‘Virtual Michael Jackson' at the Billboard Music Awards (2014). Currently, we indirectly own a majority of the issued and outstanding common stock of PEC through EAI. Pursuant to the terms of the closing agreement, the Company became a 99.7% owner of EAI. The Company accounted for the transaction as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting based on ASC 805 — Business Combinations, which requires recognition and measurement of all identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed at their fair value as of the date control is obtained. The Company determined that it was the accounting acquirer under ASC 805. This determination was primarily based on existing management of the Company retaining 4 of the 5 seats on the Board, the provisions of the voting rights agreement entered between the Company and the principal founder of EAI, and the operating management continuing in key roles following the business combination.
