FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Annual Report on Form 10-K including our Management’s Discussion and Analysis contains not only statements that are historical facts, but also statements that are forward-looking (within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934).

 

Forward-looking statements are, by their very nature, uncertain and risky. These risks and uncertainties include the Company’s limited operating history; its limited financial resources; the success of our fundraising efforts; our ability to meet our obligations, continue as a going concern or realize on our assets, if necessary to meet liabilities; international, national and local general economic and market conditions; demographic changes; our ability to achieve, sustain, manage or forecast growth; our failure to correctly anticipate market trends; our ability to successfully make and integrate acquisitions; risks related to new product development and introduction including our Universal Mobile Interface ™(UMI); competition including the activities of competitors and the presence of new or additional competition; the failure to gain and/or loss of significant customers or suppliers; fluctuations and difficulty in forecasting operating results; changes in business strategy or development plans; business disruptions; the ability to attract and retain qualified personnel; the ability to protect technology and obtain and/or maintain key licensing arrangements, joint ventures and partnerships; and other risks that might be detailed from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

 

Although the forward-looking statements in this Annual Report on Form 10-K reflect the good faith judgment of our management, such statements are based on information available to management on the date hereof, and we assume no obligation to revise or publicly release any revision to any such forward-looking statement, except as may otherwise be required by law. Consequently, and because forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, the actual results and outcomes may differ materially from the results and outcomes discussed in the forward-looking statements. You are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made by us in this report and in our other reports as we attempt to advise interested parties of the risks and factors that may affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations and prospects.

 

The following business and financial discussion should be read in conjunction with our financial statements, including the notes thereto, appearing elsewhere in this filing.

ITEM 1.  BUSINESS

 

Unless otherwise stated, the terms “we,” “us,” “our,” “Holdings,” and the “Company” refer to Consorteum Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries.

 

Introduction

 

This annual report on Form 10-K is a comprehensive filing for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015. It is being filed by us in order to become current in our filing obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). This is our first periodic filing since the quarter ended March 31, 2015. Included in this report are the audited financial statements that have not been included in annual reports on Form 10-K since the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015, as well as summarized quarterly financial information for each of the quarters ended (i) September 30 and December 31, 2015, (ii) March 31, September 30 and December 31, 2016 and (iii) March 31, 2017.

 

This annual report should be read together and in connection with the other reports filed by us with the SEC. In the interest of complete and accurate disclosure, we have included current information in this annual report for all material events and developments that have taken place since March 31, 2015 through the date of filing of this annual report with the SEC.

 

Business Development

 

Consorteum Holdings, Inc., formerly known as Implex Corporation, was incorporated in the State of Nevada on November 7, 2005. The Company is a holding company owning a controlling and/or passive interest in 359 Mobile Inc. and Consorteum Inc. which has been inactive for many years. Our corporate headquarters are located at 1870 The Exchange, Suite 100, Atlanta, Georgia, 30339-2021. Our telephone number is (888) 603-5161. Our website is located at www.consorteum.com.

 

On September 29, 2008, the Company filed an amendment with the Secretary of State of Nevada to change it names from Implex Corporation to Consorteum Holdings, Inc. Due to the Company’s change in business, it was determined that the Company had an inception date for financial reporting purposes of July 1, 2011. At that time, the Company operated as a transaction management company focusing on transaction processing solutions and products for the payment processing and financial transaction markets.

 

In October 2012, the Company secured a license to market and license the world’s first regulatory compliant mobile platform for delivery of gaming content originally known as CAPSA, which met the standards of the Nevada Gaming Board, from Tarsin Inc. (“Tarsin”) through a licensing agreement. The licensing agreement provided the Company with an exclusive right to license the CAPSA software platform in selected geographical markets throughout Canada and Mexico, along with select customers within the United States (the “Tarsin License”). The CAPSA software platform was capable of providing digital media to a wide range of mobile handsets, and provided for the ability to securely transmit financial information to individual handset owners. The Tarsin License provided us with capabilities in the mobile handset market, which we could use to ensure cross functionality of mobile applications across a wide variety of handsets.

 

In July 2013, the Company altered its business model to become a provider of digital content across mobile devices. In conjunction therewith, the Company formed two Nevada subsidiary corporations, Bad Rabbit Inc. and ThreeFiftyNine Inc., and hired a senior level software development team that had previously designed the CAPSA technology. The development team spent about two years and millions of dollars in non-recurring engineering costs to complete the development of the platform and to make modifications and enhancements thereto in order to introduce the platform into the market utilizing branded partnership relationships in the mobile sports betting and casino gaming verticals. Despite significant progress on the development and enhancement of the platform and substantially completing its first mobile gaming product, such activities did not result in generating any revenue for the Company.

 

 

 

 

 1 

 

 

Tarsin filed a voluntary petition for bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of California and the Company was a creditor in this Case No. 13-53607. In resolving the bankruptcy case, NYG Holdings LLC (“NYG”) acquired the original intellectual property from Tarsin, which included the first generation CAPSA platform. Effective October 20, 2014, the Company entered into a multi-year license agreement for the CAPSA platform with NYG. The multi-year license agreement was for a five year term renewable annually thereafter. The Company was responsible to pay royalties fees of 10% of net revenues plus $100,000 annually. However, the first 18 months of the agreement were royalty free and the first three years of annual payments were waived. In the spring of 2015, the Company stopped development on the legacy CAPSA platform, as the CAPSA platform was eclipsed by rapid advances in open source software platforms that became commercially available in 2015. The Company never introduced its platform or any products into the market, never generated any revenue and never used the CAPSA platform in any commercial way. Recently, the Company made a decision to recast its business to take advantage of other opportunities that have arisen that do not utilize the CAPSA Platform. On August 31, 2017, the Company and NYG mutually agreed to terminate the license agreement and for the rights, licenses and obligations of each of the parties thereunder to terminate and cease effective December 31, 2016, the time at which NYG discontinued its business. Further, each party has mutually agreed to waive and release the other party from any breaches of the License Agreement by the other party that may have occurred during the term the License Agreement was in effect.

 

During 2014 and 2015, the Company experienced operational downsizing due to capital constraints but maintained the core management team. Bad Rabbit ceased operating in 2015 and ThreeFiftyNine became inactive. The Company faced severe capital constraints and was unable to access additional capital to continue operations beyond June 2015 and, as a result, the Company (i) laid off its development team and ceased paying managers and advisors, (ii) suspended rent and related payments for its facilities, (iii) was unable to satisfy significant payables due to third parties, including its independent auditors, for work performed for the Company and to retain the necessary advisors to prepare and complete the financial reports required by the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the SEC. The Company has engaged in virtually no business activities since June 2015.

 

In 2015, the software development operational efforts from Bad Rabbit Inc. were transferred to 359 Mobile Inc. (“359”) to enable 359 at a future date to develop and deploy end-to-end solutions for both cloud and hosted based offerings in the mobile gaming, FinTech and data analytics markets and associated verticals. Utilizing open source software combined with the efforts of our development team, the Company has recently created a new and unique platform, which it intends to market as the Universal Mobile Interface™ (“UMI”). At the heart is the capability to support fully regulatory regionally compliant financial and social transactions via Web and Mobile. This key differentiator enables us to approach many different markets that are in the business of providing mobile connectivity, secure transactional processing and social connectivity. 359 will provide solutions developed based on the Company’s extensive history and experience in payment processing, secure transactions management and end-to-end mobile vertical market offerings. The UMI platform will initially be introduced into the market utilizing branded partnership relationships in the FinTech, data analytics, secure payment processing, compliancy lead transaction management, and digital social events sectors. The first deployment of the UMI will be in mobile gaming in the UK in 2018. Concurrent with that effort, the Company will continue to evaluate the feasibility of additional territory deployments based upon market analysis and regulatory issues. Additionally, the Company will evaluate opportunities to market its current technologies in other industries. Going forward we expect our revenues to be derived from transactions processed using our UMI software platform technology in various countries outside the US starting with the United Kingdom as we explore other international distribution opportunities. We will also explore any US opportunities that are feasible.

 

FinTech describes an emerging financial sector in the 21st century. The term “financial technology” can apply to any innovation in how people transact business. Since the internet revolution and the mobile internet revolution, however, financial technology has grown explosively, and FinTech, which originally referred to computer technology applied to the back office of banks or trading firms, now describes a broad variety of technological interventions into personal and commercial transactions.

 

Between July 11, 2008 and August 31, 2017, we issued convertible notes aggregating approximately $12,311,634 (the “Company Notes”) to investors in our Company to finance operations. These Company Notes were issued in various tranches. Such Company Notes bear interest at interest rates ranging between 5% and 24% per annum payable at maturity and mature between October 2010 and December 2017. The Company Notes had a principal balance at August 31, 2017 of $7,452,494 and accrued interest of $4,859,140 and are convertible at any time, at the option of the holder, at conversion prices ranging from $0.008 to $0.05 per share.

For the years ended June 30, 2017, 2016, and 2015, we have secured net working capital of approximately $0, $0, and $215,000 from an existing convertible note holder. In addition, an officer of the Company advanced approximately $174,000, $139,000, and $1.33 million for the respective 2017, 2016, and 2015 fiscal years.

 

The Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer has attempted to raise additional capital to be used in connection with the Company’s business plan, including debt financing or a private placement or placements of our equity securities. As a result of these efforts, it became intuitively obvious that, without the Company being current in its Exchange Act reporting obligations, the Company would be unable to consummate any of the transactions it was considering.

 

We intend to raise additional capital through private placements of our equity securities, an equity line of credit or a rights offering to recommence operations, hire personnel, complete its first mobile gaming product and launch that product in the United Kingdom during 2018. Nevertheless, the terms of any such financing transactions are still undetermined and there can be no assurance that we will conclude any such financing.

 

To date, we have not engaged in any definitive negotiations with potential investors or lenders regarding any private placement of our equity securities, equity line of credit or rights offering. However, the Company is currently actively speaking and holding preliminary negotiations with various capital, equity and debt financing firms for the purposes of establishing sufficient working capital to accomplish its strategic objectives and hopes to consummate one or more financing transactions before year end although there can be no assurance that it will do so. The proceeds from any such financing will be used primarily to provide us with working capital.

 

The Company has faced and may continue to face significant uncertainty relating to liquidity and intends to continue to search for additional sources of working capital, and to actively search for collaborative partners. Many of the existing contracts and initiatives described in this Annual Report on Form 10-K require capital expenditures by Holdings to move forward and management anticipates that delays in project implementation will continue if funds are not available to it.

  

Our Business

 

Holdings was incorporated as a transaction management company focusing on transaction processing solutions and products for the payment processing and financial transaction markets. Holdings has since transformed itself into a software development company and mobile publishing company focused on the delivery of digital content to mobile devices, including its suite of mobile offerings, delivery of mobile content, mobile payments solutions and products through a mix of on-deck partnerships, license agreements, and joint venture arrangements. Holdings has yet to product any revenue. Holdings has spent the last several years developing relationships that will enable us to participate in the emerging market of mobile gaming and FinTech. Through the efforts of our development team, we have the capability to deliver rich mobile content to end users who will use their smart phones in radically new ways. Our UMI has the capacity to open up opportunities in multiple business verticals, such as providing solutions in FinTech, data analytics, secure payment processing, compliancy lead transaction management and various digital social event sectors.

 

Universal Mobile Interface™ - the Solution for Going Mobile

 

Today’s current mobile application and transaction solutions are limited - whether it be in how users can interact, or the number of devices it can actually support. As companies look to mobile strategies, the picture gets extremely cloudy in how to develop a rich mobile offering that can resonate within the mass market. Our UMI is able to take the “how” out of planning and execution, encompassing all the components that allow for a rich mobile experience to be delivered to a handset.

Our first revenues from the licensing of our UMI software platform are expected to be realized in conjunction with the launch of our mobile gaming offerings in the United Kingdom in 2018. Concurrent with that effort, the Company will continue to evaluate the feasibility of additional territory deployments based upon market analysis and regulatory issues. Additionally, the Company will evaluate opportunities to market its current technologies in other industries. 

 

Going forward we expect our revenues to be derived from transactions processed using our UMI software platform technology in various countries outside the US starting with the United Kingdom as we explore other international distribution opportunities. We will also explore any US opportunities that are feasible.

 

Market Overview

 

People are spending more time on their mobile phones than ever before. This new marketing world consists of terms like smart phones, SEO, mobile sites, geolocation, and social marketing. It therefore becomes imperative for companies to understand these new types of consumers and how best to reach them. Technologies such as geolocation and mobile tagging can help companies and brands better understand the mobile consumer and deliver more targeted, relevant messaging.

 

According to data from Statista, the number of smartphone users worldwide is forecast to grow from 2.1 billion in 2016 to 2.5 billion by 2019. Just over 36% of the world’s population is projected to use a smartphone by 2018, up from about 10% in 2011.

 

In the US, data from Statista indicates there will be approximately 223 million smartphone users in 2017. By 2019, the number of smartphone users in the U.S. is expected to increase to approximately 247.5 million. 

 

Industry analysts such as smartinsights.com confirm ever-increasing usage of smart phones by people worldwide:

 

  One half of all local searches are performed on mobile devices
  Mobile tags provide more product information like comparison shopping offers than traditional barcodes
  86% of mobile internet users are using their devices while watching TV
  29% of mobile users are open to scanning a mobile tag to get a coupon
  On average, Americans spend 2.7 hours per day socializing on their mobile device. That’s over twice the amount of time they spend eating, and over 1/3 of the time they spend sleeping each day.
  The top 5 items people use their mobile device for are:
  1. Games 61%
  2. Weather 55%
  3. Search 50%
  4. Social Network 49%
  5. Music 42%

 

Competition

 

Historically, the applications market began with Native Applications developed for specific phone models and operating systems. Because the Apple iPhone initially dominated the Smartphone market, most applications were developed first for the current iPhone and then rewritten for the Android. Then as new Smartphone models were released or operating systems upgraded, the Native Applications had to be rewritten and customers were required to download new applications.

 

As mobile networks increased in speed and capability, Mobile Web Applications became popular for non-secure applications. Mobile Web Applications lack in security and can’t match the user experience of Native Applications; however, they do offer a less expensive alternative and do not require the constant support of Native Applications. To address the need for secure applications that offer a robust user experience, Hybrid Applications address the market needs. A Hybrid Application optimizes the unique functionality and display of mobile devices while utilizing the computing power of a host processor, usually in the cloud.

 

 

 

 

 4 

 

 

Cloud and SaaS models have broken through the trust barrier, giving hosted solutions full security approval in B2B markets. We believe that the reduction in reliance upon installed and maintained hardware, with the associated freedom to drive scale across multi-national footprints, will drive even greater adoption of cloud-based infrastructure. UMI incorporates a mobile platform delivering data from a cloud computing backend to deliver content and proper display to any mobile device.

 

Our UMI platform will allow cross operating system development and is unique in addressing the needs of the mobile gaming industry, which is complex and highly regulated, in key areas such as security, user authentication, geo-location and geo-fencing. By addressing all the market needs we are capable of achieving rapid development and low cost of ownership and mass market mobile device coverage. Other companies such as Cantor Wireless Gaming, Harrah’s, IGT and Bally Tech as well as William Hill, NV Sports Book and Boyd Gaming have put forward public strategies and initial offerings within the mobile gaming market, but we do not believe these companies have the history and pedigree in the needed technology to deliver a robust full featured mobile solution. There are a few development companies entering the market who claim to have a mobile platform to compete with our UMI; however, their product descriptions include caveats like “most popular models” and “current operating systems,” where our UMI can support all mobile devices.

 

Current solutions typically fall into one of two categories: Native Applications or Mobile Web Applications. Native Applications, while seemingly inexpensive to start, require OS updates as new versions and devices emerge. As traffic increases, these applications also suffer from an inability to properly scale. Web users experience browsers that are chaotic, painfully slow, and offer a poor passive user interface experience. Mobile Web Applications suffer limitations in device functionality like messaging, cameras, tilt, and geolocation. Our technology platform positions itself uniquely between the facets of native and mobile web applications providing high levels of satisfaction for:

 

  User experience
  Content management
  Messaging and marketing capabilities
  Security and compliance
  Speed of market reach
  Powerful multi-regional capability
  Low cost of ownership

 

Because our technology solution is designed to work with all mobile handset devices, we believe the fragmentation developing in the operating systems of the major suppliers will work to our advantage. There is a clear need to deliver new and innovative solutions that are agnostic to the mobile handset manufacturer. Ultimately, 359 is positioning itself to lead the industry in this capability.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we anticipate competition in our markets and for our products and services to be stiff. Many of our competitors have substantially greater resources than we do. There can be no assurance that we will compete successfully.

 

OUR PRIMARY SALES AND MARKETING STRATEGY
 

Enabling and Delivering Solutions to the Mobile Gaming Sector

 

The mobile gaming industry faces the most stringent technical and regulatory challenges, even more challenging than mobile banking by an order of magnitude. Requirements include geofencing within territorial borders and on-property, plus a sophisticated range of anti-fraud measures to validate the user’s account and mobile device. Mobile- and simcard-based technologies offer a flexible range of solutions, more so than online or web-based technology (where variable IP addressing negates many anti-fraud measures).

 

We believe there is a true market hunger for partnerships to mobilize and publish gaming content in full compliance with all legal and regulatory demands, by regulator and by territory. In Europe, licenses are also issued by territory and therefore gaming abroad demonstrates many of the same needs as seen in the US. Gaming operators in Europe are more advanced in their digital solution offerings than the US market has seen, although they have uncovered a range of new hurdles; base management, profiling and engagement; maximizing cross-sell and up-sell to their base; push messaging based on location and social media connectivity.

The online gambling market is comprised of remote gaming activities by means of internet (desktop-based as well as mobile). According to a study conducted by Juniper Research, the value of wagers placed online in 2017 will be $550 billion. The market is projected to double to nearly $1 trillion by 2021. The study went on to further indicate that the “majority of net growth” is attributable to mobile. Global Online Gambling expects to see an expected growth rate of approximately 7.5 % based on 2016-2018 estimates (“Global Online Gambling,” Marketline February 2015).

 

Europe is where many of the roughly 85 nations across the world that allow online gambling are located. Europe is also where roughly 40% of worldwide online gaming revenue is generated. There is still a lot of available growth in this market sector when one considers that nearly 56% of the world’s population is banned from accessing online casinos in their own countries.

 

The European online gambling industry is expected to grow at a Compounded Annual Growth Rate of 3.1% during 2016-2018 according to analysts from H2 Gambling Capital. H2 Gambling Capital estimates the European online gambling market at $21.9 billion by 2018.

 

Based on the foregoing, we foresee gaming opportunities for the Company, including but not limited to the following:

 

Mobile Marketing Services – Providing loyalty card and group offerings to Casinos and Hotel chains, allowing the property to have a presence with the members via SMS, MMS and mobile application offerings, creating a one to one marketing experience connecting ties to points, rewards and offerings.

 

Mobile Sports Book (real time) – Providing all the end- to- end mobile infrastructure from cloud hosting, application design, mCommerce, authentication, security, location services and application publishing for sports book operators globally.

 

The Company also believes there are significant opportunities for us to provide mobile fixed odds betting solutions as well as social based transactional solutions.

 

Sales and Distribution

 

Through existing relationships, and discussions with potential business partners, we are assessing the feasibility of introducing our mobile gaming products in countries outside the US, with the intention of extending our business worldwide.

 

Upon receipt of sufficient funding, we plan to enter into contracts with existing casinos that desire to add mobile gaming and wagering to their offerings. The addition of a mobile wagering/sports betting platform allows the casinos to brand a new capability and attracts new clients to the property. Typically, we would enter into a contract to provide custom gaming and wagering and charge a per user fee, which may include a percentage of the wage or gaming “rake.”

 

Intellectual Property

 

The Company holds various trademarks but no patents or copyrights. The Company has experience developing, leasing and supporting various programming solutions in the US gaming market, such as the release of Sports Connection (www.sclv.com). In the mobile gaming market, our intellectual capital and our human capital will form the foundation for various partner programs and the Company’s internal go to market strategies.

Regulation

 

We are in compliance with all material mobile regulatory controls, such as VeriSign, Safe Harbor, and all carrier commerce and mobile consumer privacy regulations. 359 has managed the in life support program for Class 3 mobile gaming pursuant to Nevada Gaming Board regulations.

The Company intends to comply with all regulations applicable to its business as it develops.

 

Funding

 

We have not received any funding commitments and there can be no assurance that we will raise sufficient financing for the projects and applications described herein. Our financial results to date are reflective of an early stage company that has pilot projects in place, but no active programs. If we are not successful in raising funds in the amounts and the times required, our ability to implement one or more of the projects described above will be adversely affected.

 

Employees and Consultants

 

As of October 14, 2017, the Company (and its subsidiaries) had a total of two employees. The Company engages the services of independent contractors to assist with developing our product offerings.

ITEM 3.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

As of the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014, the Company was a creditor in two related bankruptcy cases in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of California (“Court”). The Company filed proofs of claim and submitted an administrative expense claim for critical support services rendered to debtors in both In re Game2Mobile, Case No. 13-52062 and In re Tarsin, Inc. Case No. 13-53607. On or about June 10, 2014, the Court approved the debtors’ motion to sell substantially all of their assets to NYG Holdings, LLC (“NYG”) and a related motion to approve a compromise of controversy with Tarsin (Europe) LTD., the largest unsecured creditor in these bankruptcy cases. As related to the sale, the Company negotiated a settlement with NYG whereby, among other things, NYG would grant the Company a new license for the CAPSA platform and the Company would withdraw its claims in the bankruptcy cases upon receipt of the license with NYG. On August 31, 2017, NYG and the Company mutually agreed to terminate the license agreement effective December 31, 2016, as discussed above.

 

For the quarterly periods beginning with the quarterly period ended September 30, 2013 and ending with the quarterly period ended June 30, 2015, Bad Rabbit was unable to remit its portion of Federal Employment taxes due to the Company’s cash position. The fully accrued payroll tax liability, including penalties and interest to date, is approximately $585,000. This liability is fully accrued. Bad Rabbit ceased operations in 2015. The Company is currently in discussions with tax professionals to work out a settlement of all amounts including penalties and interest and a mutually acceptable installment payment plan with the IRS.

 

On or about March 17, 2017, the State of Nevada Department of Employment, Training & Rehabilitation, Employment Security Division obtained a judgment in the First Judicial District Court of the State of Nevada in and for Carson City against Bad Rabbit, Inc. in the amount of $64,674 together with interest thereon for delinquent payroll taxes, penalties and interest. Such amount remains unpaid and continues to accrue interest. The Company has accrued these liabilities.

 

On or about May 24, 2016, a judgment was entered in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Court File No. CV-15-522603) on behalf of Merchant MPowerTec Marketing Inc. (“MPower”) against Consorteum Inc., a Canadian corporation and a long inactive subsidiary of the Company, for the balance of a loan amounting to C$143,500 (US $110,000) owing to MPower along with payment of interest at a rate of 18% being C$145,638 to such date payable to MPower plus court costs of approximately $2,000. A personal guarantor has paid approximately US $60,000 of this judgment, while the balance remains unpaid by Consorteum Inc. and continues to accrue interest. The Company has tried unsuccessfully to settle this issue with MPowertec by issuance of a convertible note. The total liability as at June 30, 2017 is US $250,000, which has been accrued.

Introduction

 

This Comprehensive Form 10-K includes, in one comprehensive filing, the business and financial information for the Company for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015. Therefore, this Management’s Discussion and Analysis provides an analysis of the annual financial condition and results of operations for each of the years ended June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015. The Financial Statements and Supplementary Data include summarized quarterly financial condition and results of operations for each of the quarters ended (i) September 30 and December 31, 2015, (ii) March 31, September 30 and December 31, 2016, and (iii) March 31, 2017. This review should be read in conjunction with the Financial Statements and Supplementary Data, which are included in Item 8 of this Comprehensive Form 10-K.

 

The Company has spent the last several years recasting the direction of the Company. We intend to take advantage of the opportunities that have been identified in the mobile gaming, FinTech, data analytics, secure payment processing, compliancy lead transaction management, and digital social events sectors. The market opportunities that are opened to a company that can master the technology of delivering any digital content in a secure, geographically precise area, across any smart phone or mobile device are vast. Our main task has been to narrow our initial focus on the evaluation of a series of internally developed and deployed vertical market offerings, coupled with the identification and pursuit of relevant strategic partners. The technology necessary to successfully deliver end-to-end mobile gaming content for our customers requires the platform to be capable of a secure financial transaction, with complicated rules of winning, regulated by a government entity that depends on location based services.

 

359’s development team has created a platform which will be known as the Universal Mobile Interface™. It is our belief that the UMI platform will lead the market in the capability to deliver unique solutions to our strategic partners and customers that will become the basis of our revenue moving forward.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Comparison of the Years ended June 30, 2017 and 2016

 

Revenues

 

The Company had no revenue in the fiscal years ended June 30, 2017 and 2016. Our first revenues from the licensing of our UMI software platform are expected to be realized in conjunction with the launch of our mobile gaming offerings in the UK in 2018. Going forward we expect our revenues to be derived from transactions processed using our UMI software platform technology in various countries outside the US as we explore other international distribution opportunities. We will also explore any US opportunities that are feasible.

 

Selling, General, and Administrative Expenses

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses primarily consist of consultant fees related to software development, marketing programs, which consist mostly of business development and advertising expenses, as well as other general and administrative expenses, including payroll expenses, necessary to support our operations, legal expenses and professional fees.

 

Selling, general, and administrative expenses remained fairly consistent in fiscal 2017 as compared to fiscal 2016.

 

Interest Expense

 

Interest consists of interest payable pursuant to stated rates on interest bearing indebtedness. The increase in interest expense in fiscal 2017 when compared to fiscal 2016 is primarily due to continuing increases in accrued interest on existing loans.

Net Losses

 

We have continued to incur losses for the periods presented. We expect to incur losses until the Company can generate revenues sufficient to cover our operating costs. The Company will need to continue to raise additional working capital to develop its business initiatives until they turn profitable.

Selling, general and administrative expenses primarily consist of consultant fees related to software development, marketing programs, which consist mostly of business development and advertising expenses, as well as other general and administrative expenses, including payroll expenses, necessary to support our operations, legal expenses and professional fees.

 

The decrease in our selling, general, and administrative expenses in fiscal 2016 when compared to fiscal 2015 is primarily attributable to operational downsizing due to limited availability of operating capital.

 

Interest Expense

 

Interest consists of interest payable pursuant to stated rates on interest bearing indebtedness. The increase in interest expense in fiscal 2016 when compared to fiscal 2015 is primarily due to the conversion of certain promissory notes into convertible notes with a higher interest rate during the fiscal year in addition to continuing increases of accrued interest on existing loans.

 

Net Losses

 

We have continued to incur losses for the periods presented. We expect to incur losses until the Company can generate revenues sufficient to cover our operating costs. The Company will need to continue to raise additional working capital to develop its business initiatives until they turn profitable.

Interest Expense

 

Interest consists of interest payable pursuant to stated rates on interest bearing indebtedness. The increase in interest expense in fiscal 2015 when compared to fiscal 2014 is primarily due to the issuance of additional loans payable during the fiscal year in addition to continuing increase of accrued interest on existing loans.

 

Net Losses

 

We have continued to incur losses for the periods presented. We expect to incur losses until the Company can generate revenues sufficient to cover our operating costs. The Company will need to continue to raise additional working capital to develop its business initiatives until they turn profitable.

 

Plan of Operation, Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Cash Flows – Fiscal 2017 

 

We had a cash balance of $1,915 at June 30, 2017.

 

During fiscal 2017, we used cash in our operating activities amounting to approximately $149,000. Our cash used in operating activities was comprised of our net loss from operations of approximately $1,097,000 primarily attributable to compensation and contractual services under Selling, general and administrative (SG&A).

 

During fiscal 2017 we used no cash from investing activities.

 

During fiscal 2017, we generated net cash from financing activities of approximately $149,000, which primarily consisted of proceeds from stockholder advances.

During fiscal 2016, we used cash in our operating activities amounting to approximately $132,000. Our cash used in operating activities was comprised of our net loss from operations of approximately $1,242,000 primarily attributable to compensation and contractual services under SG &A.

During fiscal 2015, we generated cash from financing activities of approximately $1,403,000, which consisted primarily of proceeds from officer advances coupled with the issuance of convertible notes to an existing noteholder.

 

Going Concern

 

The Company's consolidated financial statements are presented on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has suffered losses from operations. As of June 30, 2017, the Company had a working capital deficit (current liabilities in excess of current assets) of approximately $20.95 million.

 

The Company has secured working capital of approximately $174,000, $139,000 and $1.5 million during the years ended June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015 respectively. Subsequent to such date, the Company has raised additional capital totaling approximately $240,000; such proceeds were used for working capital of the business. The Company requires additional equity or debt financing to meet its obligations as they become due. In the event that such financing is not secured, the Company will not be able to satisfy its liabilities. Certain of the Company’s debt is overdue. The Company is attempting to restructure some of the debt and secure investments and additional financing partners to satisfy its existing obligations and provide for sufficient working capital to meet the Company’s future obligations but there are no guarantees that the Company will be able to do any of these things.

 

Management of the Company believes that it will need to obtain additional capital in the future to support the working capital requirements associated with its planned deployment of its UMI software platform as well as other future initiatives. There can be no assurances that the Company will be successful in obtaining sufficient additional capital, or if it does, that the additional capital will enable the Company operate profitably in the future and develop new revenue sources to have a material positive effect on the Company’s operations and cash flow. Further, there can be no assurances that revenues in future periods will be sustained at levels that will allow it to achieve and maintain positive cash flow.

 

The Company’s plan of operation for the twelve months beginning with the date of this annual report consists of focusing its efforts on the successful launch of its mobile gaming initiatives in the United Kingdom in 2018. Concurrent with that effort the Company will continue to evaluate the feasibility of additional territory deployments based upon market analysis and regulatory issues. Additionally, the Company will evaluate opportunities to market its current technologies in other industries. 

 

Risk Factors

 

The Company’s operating results, financial condition and stock price are subject to certain risks, some of which are beyond its control. These risks could cause the Company’s actual operating and financial results to differ materially from those expressed in its forward looking statements, including the risks described below and the risks identified in other documents which are filed with the SEC:

 

Limited Interim Historical Information. This comprehensive annual report on Form 10-K contains summarized quarterly financial information for each of the quarters ended (i) September 30 and December 31, 2015, (ii) March 31, September 30 and December 31, 2016, and (iii) March 31, 2017. As the complete periodic filings for those periods have not been filed, certain financial information, disclosures and discussions normally contained in a Form 10-Q are not included in this Form 10-K. The omission of the information that would have been contained in these periodic filings leaves current and prospective investors, customers, employees and others without this source of information about the Company’s business achievements and prospects and may negatively impact the Company’s business opportunities and its ability to raise capital. There can be no assurances that the Company will be able to remain current with its required SEC filing obligations in the future.

 

Access to Capital. The Company anticipates that it will need to raise capital in the future to fund its historical and new business operations. Negative or uncertain global economic conditions could make it more difficult for the Company to raise capital. If the Company is unable to secure capital in the future, in the form of debt, equity or both, it may be forced to cease operations. There can be no assurances that, if required, the Company will be successful in obtaining additional investment in sufficient amounts to fund its ongoing business operations.

 

 

 

 

 14 

 

 

Possible Inability to Develop New Business. While the Company raised cash through issuance of convertible notes and advances from officers in 2015, 2016 and 2017, it limited increases in its operating expenses, reduced its operating expenses when possible and deferred payment of certain obligations to employees and service providers. Management of the Company believes that any significant improvement in the Company’s cash flow must result from increases in revenues from traditional sources and from new revenue sources. The Company’s ability to develop new revenues may depend on the extent of both its marketing activities and its planned deployment of its UMI platform. There are no assurances that the resources that the Company can devote to marketing and to UMI platform deployment and monetization will be sufficient to increase its revenues to levels that will enable it to pay its debts and maintain positive operating cash flow in the future.

 

Volatility of Stock Price. The market price for the Company’s common stock has periodically experienced significant fluctuations and may continue to do so. Prior to this comprehensive Form 10-K filing, the Company was classified as a delinquent non-reporting entity on the OTC:BB/PK. Upon filing of this report, the Company’s PK status will be removed and we will once again be listed on the OTC:BB/PK. Additionally, securities analysts and traders do not extensively follow the Company’s stock and its stock is thinly traded. The Company’s market price may be affected by announcements of new relationships or modifications to existing relationships. The stock prices of many developing public companies, particularly those with small capitalizations, have experienced wide fluctuations not necessarily related to operating performance. Such fluctuations may adversely affect the market price of the Company’s common stock.

 

Intellectual Property. The Company relies on confidentiality, non-disclosure and licensing agreements to establish and protect its rights in its proprietary technologies. While the Company actively attempts to protect these rights, its technologies may be compromised through reverse engineering or other means. In addition, the Company’s ability to enforce its intellectual property rights through appropriate legal action has been and will continue to be limited by its adverse liquidity. There can be no assurances that the Company will be able to protect the basis of its technologies from discovery by unauthorized third parties or to preclude unauthorized persons from conducting activities that infringe on the Company’s rights.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

As of June 30, 2017 and for the year then ended, there were no recently adopted accounting pronouncements that had a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Seasonality

 

Our operating results are not affected by seasonality.

 

Inflation

 

Our business and operating results are not affected in any material way by inflation.

 

ITEM 7A. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

ITEM 8. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA

 

For information required with respect to this Item 8, see index to Financial Statements and Schedules on page F-1 of this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

ITEM 9. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE

 

By letter dated March 31, 2016, RBSM LLP (“RBSM”) informed the Board of Directors of the Company and the SEC that the client-auditor relationship between the Company and RBSM had ceased. The Company did not have the resources to retain any independent accountants to audit its financial statements for its fiscal years ended June 30, 2016 and 2015. In its reports on the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, RBSM had included a going concern qualification. The Company had no disagreements or differences of opinion with RBSM on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or audit scope or procedure during those years.

 

On August 25, 2017 (the “Retention Date”), the Company re-engaged RBSM as its independent accountants to audit its financial statements for its fiscal years ended June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015. The decision to retain RBSM as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors on August 23, 2017. The Company has no audit committee.

 

During the Company's three most recent fiscal years ended June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015, and for all subsequent interim periods prior to the Retention Date, neither the Company nor anyone acting on its behalf consulted RBSM on any matter.

 

ITEM 9A.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of June 30, 2017, the end of the period covered by this report, we conducted, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer, an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act in ensuring that information required to be disclosed by us in our reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the required time periods in the relevant SEC rules and forms. Based on the foregoing, the Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer concluded that because of the material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting described below, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of June 30, 2017.

  

Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act.  Our internal control system is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, our principal executive and principal financial officer, or persons performing similar functions, and effected by our Board of Directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”).

 

 

 

 

 16 

 

 

Our internal control over financial reporting includes policies and procedures that pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect transactions and dispositions of assets provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and that receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with the authorization of our management and directors and provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

 

Because of our inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness as to future periods are subject to risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or because the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

Management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2017. As a result of its assessment, management identified material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting. Based on the weaknesses described below, management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of June 30, 2017. In making this assessment, our management used criteria issued by the Committee of Sponsoring.

 

Organizations of the Treadway Commission in Internal Control over Financial Reporting – Guidance for Smaller Public Companies.

 

A material weakness is a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that, there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. As a result of our assessment, management identified the following material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2017:

 

  While there were internal controls and procedures in place that relate to financial reporting and the prevention and detection of material misstatements, these controls did not meet the required documentation and effectiveness requirements and therefore, management could not certify that these controls were correctly implemented. As a result, it was management’s opinion that the lack of documentation warranted a material weakness in the financial reporting process.

 

  There is lack of segregation of duties in financial reporting, as one consultant performs our financial reporting and all accounting functions. This weakness is due to our lack of working capital to hire additional staff during the period covered by this report.

 

We intend to hire additional accounting personnel to assist with financial reporting as soon as our finances will allow. Even with this change, due to the increasing number and complexity of pronouncements, emerging issues and releases, and reporting requirements and regulations, we expect there will continue to be some risk related to financial disclosures. However, the process of identifying risk areas and implementing financial disclosure controls and internal controls over financial reporting required under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act continues to be complex and subject to significant judgment and may result in the identification in the future of areas where we may need additional resources. Additionally, due to the complexity and judgment involved in this process, we cannot guarantee that we will not find or have pointed out to us either by internal or external resources, or by our auditors, additional areas needing improvement or resulting in a future assessment that our controls are or have become ineffective as a result of overlooked or newly created significant deficiencies or unmitigated risks.

 

Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarterly period ended June 30, 2017 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Attestation Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

An attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting is not required.

Board of Directors and Executive Officers

 

Our directors and executive officers are as follows:

 

Name  Age   Position
Craig A. Fielding   53   Chairman of the Board of Directors, Chief Executive Officer, President, Chief Financial Officer
Patrick Shuster   65   Chief Operating Officer, Secretary, Director

 

Set forth below is biographical information with respect to each of the aforementioned individuals.

 

CRAIG A. FIELDING, CHAIRMAN, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER, PRESIDENT, AND DIRECTOR, AGE 53

 

From April 2006 through December 2011 and May 2012 to the present, Mr. Fielding has served as our CEO, CFO and one of our directors. Mr. Fielding assumed the role of President and CEO in August 2010, and was part of the team that took the Company into the public market, and one of the founders of the Company. From 1999 to February 2006, Mr. Fielding was part of the management teams at two startup technology companies in the financial transaction processing market place. From August 1989 to August 1999, Mr. Fielding worked in a number of Sales Management and Senior Management roles in North America with Xerox Canada Ltd. Mr. Fielding attended Manchester Polytechnic in England where he studied business. Mr. Fielding’s experience in technology, solution selling and large system building in his prior positions enables him to bring this valuable experience to the Board and as CEO of the Company.

 

PATRICK SHUSTER, CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER, SECRETARY, AND DIRECTOR, AGE 65

 

Mr. Shuster has served as our COO and one of our directors since May 1, 2011. He has over 25 years business experience, including over 18 years in executive management, engineering, operations and marketing in the telecommunications industry. From May 2005 until June 2011, he served as an officer and director of China Wireless Communications Inc., a publicly traded company engaged in the business of mergers & acquisitions. He has assisted numerous public and private companies in business development and private investment in public equity. Mr. Shuster retired as a decorated officer in the United States Navy serving in the submarine service. His last active duty assignment was as Chief Engineer of a nuclear submarine.

 

Mr. Shuster served as founder of Smart Voice Telecommunications Inc. from January 2004 to 2006. His responsibilities included all aspects of a founding principal of a Voice Over Internet Telecommunications Company. From July 2006 to August 2010, Mr. Shuster has consulted for several public and privately held companies to develop strategic business plans and streamline operations. Most recently he has consulted for several companies engaged in Homeland Security projects working on detection of CBNR (Chemical, Biological, Nuclear and Radiological) threats.

 

Board of Directors and Officers

 

Each director is elected until our next annual meeting of stockholders and until his successor is duly elected and qualified. The Board of Directors may also appoint additional directors up to the maximum number permitted under our by-laws. A director so chosen or appointed will hold office until the next annual meeting of stockholders. Each executive officer serves at the discretion of the Board of Directors and holds office until their successor is elected or until their resignation or removal in accordance with our articles of incorporation and by-laws.

 

Family Relationships

 

There are no family relationships between or among any of our directors or executive officers.

 

 

 

 18 

 

 

Significant Employees

 

The Company does not presently have any significant employees other than the named officers and directors.

 

Meeting and Committees of the Board of Directors

 

During the years ended June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015 our Board of Directors held no meetings and took eight, zero, and three actions by written consent, respectively.

 

As our common stock is not presently listed for trading or quotation on a national securities exchange or NASDAQ, we are not presently required to and do not have any board committees.

 

We do not currently have an audit committee financial expert, nor do we have an audit committee. Our entire board of directors handles the functions that would otherwise be handled by an audit committee. We do not currently have the capital resources to pay director fees to a qualified independent expert who would be willing to serve on our board and who would be willing to act as an audit committee financial expert. As our business expands and as we appoint others to our board of directors we expect that we will seek a qualified independent expert to become a member of our board of directors. Before retaining any such expert, our board would make a determination as to whether such person is independent.

 

Due to our small size and limited operations to date, we do not presently have a nominating committee, compensation committee or other committee performing similar functions. We have not adopted any procedures by which security holders may recommend nominees to the board of directors, and we do not have a diversity policy.

 

Board Leadership Structure and Role on Risk Oversight

 

We have no policy requiring the combination or separation of the Principal Executive Officer and Chairman roles and our governing documents do not mandate a particular structure. Our directors recognize that the leadership structure and the combination or separation of these leadership roles is driven by our needs at any point in time.

 

Our directors are involved in the general oversight of risks that could affect our business and they will continue to evaluate our leadership structure and modify such structure as appropriate based on our size, resources and operations.

 

Stockholder Communication with the Board of Directors

 

Stockholders may send communications to our board of directors by writing to Consorteum Holdings, Inc., 1870 The Exchange, Suite 100, Atlanta, Georgia 30339-2021, Attention: Chief Operating Officer.

 

Officers and Directors Indemnification

 

Under our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws, the Company may indemnify an officer or director who is made a party to any proceeding, including a lawsuit, because of his or her position, if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in the Company’s best interest. The Company may advance expenses incurred in defending a proceeding. To the extent that the officer or director is successful on the merits in a proceeding as to which he or she is to be indemnified, the Company must indemnify the officer or director against all expenses incurred, including attorney’s fees. With respect to a derivative action, indemnity may be made only for expenses actually and reasonably incurred in defending the proceeding, and if the officer or director is judged liable, then only by a court order. The indemnification coverage is intended to be to the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws.

 

 

 

 19 

 

 

Regarding indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act, which may be permitted to officers or directors under applicable state law, the Company is informed that, in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission, indemnification is against public policy, as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable.

 

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

 

Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires our directors, officers and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of our equity securities to file with the SEC initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership of common stock and other equity securities. Officers, directors and greater than 10% shareholders are required by SEC regulations to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.

Employment Agreements

 

In September 2012, all existing management contracts were terminated by mutual agreement with the parties effective August 31, 2012. On September 1, 2012, the Company entered into an Executive Employment Agreement with each of Craig A. Fielding, our CEO and CFO, and Patrick Shuster, our COO and Secretary, through December 31, 2016, as described above. These changes in management contracts were undertaken in light of our financial position and in order to better position us to attract additional financing. Furthermore, as set out in the financial statements, each of these individuals exchanged significant liabilities that existed as of June 30, 2012, in consideration for issuance of common stock as a subsequent transaction. Although the management contracts expired December 31, 2016 both executives continue to serve at the direction of the Board of Directors in their current positions pursuant to the terms of their respective employment agreements that were in effect in 2016.

 

Outstanding Equity Awards

 

On September 21, 2012, we granted ten-year options to purchase 5,000,000 shares, each, of our common stock to Mr. Fielding and Mr. Shuster in accordance with the Company’s 2012 Stock Option Plan, exercisable at the estimated fair market price based on our closing stock price on the grant date of $0.002 per share. Such shares began vesting on September 1, 2012 and became fully vested on December 31, 2016.

Patrick Shuster  $6,500    5,000,000   $0.002 

 

Other Compensation

 

There are no plans that provide for the payment of retirement benefits, or benefits that will be paid primarily following retirement, including but not limited to tax-qualified defined benefit plans, supplemental executive retirement plans, tax-qualified defined contribution plans and nonqualified defined contribution plans. Except as set forth above with respect to cash compensation amounting to 2% of the purchase price in the event of a sale of the Company payable to each of the Named Executives as provided in their Employment Agreements, there are no contracts, agreements, plans or arrangements, whether written or unwritten, that provide for payment(s) to a named executive officer at, following, or in connection with the resignation, retirement or other termination of a named executive officer, or a change in control of us or a change in the named executive officer’s responsibilities following a change in control, with respect to each named executive officer.

 

Stock Option Plans and Stock Compensation Plans

Compensation Committee Report

 

Because we do not have a compensation committee or a committee performing similar functions, we do not have a compensation committee report. All compensation matters are determined by our board of directors.

 

Compensation of Directors

 

We have not established standard compensation arrangements for our directors and the compensation, if any, payable to each individual for their service on our board will be determined from time to time by our board of directors based upon the amount of time expended by each of the directors on our behalf. None of our directors has received any compensation for their services.

 

ITEM 12.  SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS

 

The following table sets forth certain information regarding beneficial ownership of the our common stock as of October 11, 2017, by (i) each person known by us to be the beneficial owner of more than five (5) percent of the outstanding common stock, (ii) each director, (iii) each executive officer, and (iv) all executive officers and directors as a group. The number of shares beneficially owned is determined under rules promulgated by the SEC, and the information is not necessarily indicative of beneficial ownership for any other purpose. Under those rules, beneficial ownership includes any shares as to which the individual has sole or shared voting power or investment power and also any shares which the individual has the right to acquire within 60 days of October 11, 2017, through the exercise or conversion of any stock option, convertible security, warrant or other right. Including those shares in the tables does not, however, constitute an admission that the named stockholder is a direct or indirect beneficial owner of those shares. Unless otherwise indicated, each person or entity named in the table has sole voting power and investment power (or shares that power with that person’s spouse) with respect to all shares of common stock listed as owned by that person or entity.

Other than as set forth below, or discussed in Note 9 to the Consolidated Financial Statements herein, during the fiscal years covered by this filing there have not been any relationships, transactions or proposed transactions to which we were or are to be a party, in which any of the directors, officers, or 5% or greater stockholders (or any immediate family thereof) had or is to have a direct or indirect material interest except for the following:

ITEM 14.  PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTANT FEES AND SERVICES

 

Audit Fees

 

The aggregate fees billed for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015 for professional services rendered by RBSM LLP (“Accountant”) for the audit of our annual financial statements, and review of financial statements included in our Form 10-Qs, were $99,000, $0 and $16,500, respectively.

All Other Fees

 

There were no other fees billed in the fiscal years reported in this Comprehensive 10-K for products and services other than the services reported above.

 

Audit Committee’s Pre-Approval Practice

 

We do not have a separate audit committee. Our full board of directors performs the functions of an audit committee.

 

Prior to our engagement of our independent auditor, such engagement was approved by our board of directors. The services provided under this engagement may include audit services, audit-related services, tax services and other services. Pre-approval is generally provided for up to one year and any pre-approval is detailed as to the particular service or category of services and is generally subject to a specific budget. Pursuant to our requirements, the independent auditors and management are required to report to our board of directors at least quarterly regarding the extent of services provided by the independent auditors in accordance with this pre-approval, and the fees for the services performed to date. Our board of directors may also pre-approve particular services on a case-by-case basis. All audit-related fees, tax fees and other fees incurred by us for the years ended June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015 were approved by our board of directors.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of

Consorteum Holdings, Inc.

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Consorteum Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”), as of June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015 and the related consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss, stockholders’ deficit and cash flows for the period in the three years ended June 30, 2017. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audit.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provided a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Consorteum Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries as of June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the period in the three years ended June 30, 2017, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that Consorteum Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries will continue as a going concern. As more fully described in Note 1, the Company has a working capital deficit, and has incurred net losses and negative cash flows from operations. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 1. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

CONSORTEUM HOLDINGS, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1.The Company

 

Going Concern and Management Plan

 

The Company's consolidated financial statements are presented on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has suffered losses from operations. As of June 30, 2017, the Company had a working capital deficit (current liabilities in excess of current assets) of approximately $20.95 million.

 

The Company has secured working capital of approximately $174,000, $139,000 and $1.5 million during the years ended June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015 respectively. Subsequent to such date, the Company has raised additional capital totaling approximately $240,000; such proceeds were used for working capital of the business. The Company requires additional equity or debt financing to meet its obligations as they become due. In the event that such financing is not secured, the Company will not be able to satisfy its liabilities. Certain of the Company’s debt is overdue. The Company is attempting to restructure some of the debt and secure investments additional financing partners to satisfy its existing obligations and provide for sufficient working capital to meet the Company’s future obligations but there are no guarantees that the Company will be able to do any of these things.

 

Since its inception the Company has incurred significant losses and, as of June 30, 2017, had an accumulated deficit of $28,049,000. For the year ended June 30, 2017, the Company had a net loss from operations of $1,097,000. For the years ended June 30, 2016 and June 30, 2015, the Company had a net loss from operations of $1,242,000 and $2,477,000, respectively. The Company had negative working capital of $20,950,000 at June 30, 2017, $17,650,000 at June 30, 2016 and $14,750,000 at June 30, 2015. Achieving profitability and positive cash flow depends on the Company’s ability to generate and sustain significant increases in revenues and gross profits from its business. There can be no assurances that the Company will be able to generate sufficient revenues and gross profits to achieve profitability and positive cash flow in the future.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the inability of the Company to continue as a going concern.

 

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

The accounting policies of the Company are in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, and their basis of application is consistent with that of the previous year. Set forth below are the Company's significant accounting policies:

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Consorteum Holdings, Inc., Consorteum Inc., Bad Rabbit, Inc., 359 Mobile Inc. and ThreeFiftyNine, Inc. The Company, including its named subsidiaries, had very few activities during the fiscal years covered by this comprehensive 10-K filing. All significant intercompany balances and transactions are eliminated on consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Significant areas requiring the use of estimates relate to the estimated utilization of future income tax assets, potential penalties on certain wages, and the valuation of stock-based compensation. These estimates are based on management's best knowledge of current events and actions the Company may undertake in the future. Actual results will ultimately differ from those estimates.

 

 

 

 F-7 

 

 

Cash and cash equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents comprise bank balances and short-term bank deposits with an original maturity of three months or less.

 

Property and equipment

 

Property and equipment is recorded at cost. Depreciation, based on the estimated useful life of the property and equipment, is provided over a period of three years. Depreciation expense was $6,233 for the year ended June 30, 2015. As of June 30, 2015, all property and equipment was written off due to disposal and abandonment. A loss on disposal of $9,310 was recognized.

 

Intangible asset

 

Not applicable

 

Impairment of long-lived assets

 

In accordance with ASC 360, "Property, plant and equipment," long lived assets to be held and used are analyzed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the related carrying amounts may not be recoverable. The Company evaluates at each balance sheet date whether events and circumstances have occurred that indicate possible impairment. If there are indications of impairment, the Company uses future undiscounted cash flows of the related asset or asset grouping over the remaining life in measuring whether the assets are recoverable. In the event such cash flows are not expected to be sufficient to recover the recorded asset values, the assets are written down to their estimated fair value. Long lived assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of carrying amount or fair value of asset less cost to sell.

 

Deferred finance charges

 

Not applicable

 

Convertible Debt with Beneficial Conversion Features

 

Convertible debt is accounted for under the guidelines established by Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 470, “Debt with Conversion and Other Options” and ASC 740, “Beneficial Conversion Features”. The Company records a beneficial conversion feature (“BCF”) related to the issuance of convertible debt that has conversion features at fixed or adjustable rates that are in-the-money when issued and records the fair value of warrants issued with those instruments. The BCF for the convertible instruments is recognized and measured by allocating a portion of the proceeds to warrants and as a reduction to the carrying amount of the convertible instrument equal to the intrinsic value of the conversion features, both of which are credited to paid-in-capital.

 

The Company calculates the fair value of warrants issued, if any, with the convertible instruments using the Black-Scholes valuation method, using the same assumptions used for valuing employee options for purposes of ASC 718 “Compensation – Stock Compensation”, except that the contractual life of the warrant is used. Under these guidelines, the Company allocates the value of the proceeds received from a convertible debt transaction between the conversion feature and any other detachable instruments (such as warrants) on a relative fair value basis. The allocated fair value is recorded as a debt discount or premium and is amortized over the expected term of the convertible debt to interest expense. For a conversion price change of a convertible debt issue, the additional intrinsic value of the debt conversion feature, calculated as the number of additional shares issuable due to a conversion price change multiplied by the previous conversion price, is recorded as additional debt discount and amortized over the remaining life of the debt.

Convertible Debt with Adjustable Conversion Options

 

Certain of our convertible debt contains rights that allow the holders to adjust their conversion price in the event the Company issues common stock at a price per share below their conversion price or convert principal into a variable number of shares with no floor price. Accordingly, the provisions of ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815”) apply and must be evaluated by us. ASC 815 applies to any freestanding financial instruments or embedded features that have the characteristics of a derivative and to any freestanding financial instruments that are potentially settled in an entity’s own common stock. These conversion features are bifurcated and recorded at fair value at each reporting date using the Black Scholes valuation model.

 

Revenue recognition

 

The Company will recognize revenue based on the following criteria: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred or services have been rendered; (3) the selling price is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. As of June 30, 2017, the Company has had no revenue, neither current nor deferred.

 

Share-Based Payments

 

The Company accounts for stock options issued to employees and consultants under ASC 718, Share-Based Payment. Under ASC 718, share-based compensation cost to employees is measured at the grant date, based on the estimated fair value of the award, and is recognized as expense over the employee's requisite vesting period.

 

The Company measures compensation expense for its non-employee stock-based compensation under ASC 505, Equity. The fair value of the option issued or committed to be issued is used to measure the transaction, as this is more reliable than the fair value of the services received. The fair value is measured at the value of the Company's common stock on the date that the commitment for performance by the counterparty has been reached or the counterparty's performance is complete. The fair value of the equity instrument is charged directly to stock-based compensation expense and credited to additional paid-in capital.

 

Income taxes 

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC 740, "Income Taxes". Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recorded for differences between the financial statement and tax basis of the assets and liabilities that will result in taxable or deductible amounts in the future based on enacted tax laws and rates. Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. Income tax expense is recorded for the amount of income tax payable or refundable for the period increased or decreased by the change in deferred tax assets and liabilities during the period.

  

Foreign currency translation

 

In accordance with the provision of ASC 830, Foreign Currency Matters, the Company translates its balance sheet into U.S. dollars at the prevailing rate at the balance sheet date and translates its revenues and expenses at the average rates prevailing during each reporting period. Net gains or losses resulting from the translation of financial statements are accumulated and charged directly to accumulated comprehensive income or (loss), a component of stockholders' equity or (deficit). Realized gains or losses resulting from foreign currency transactions are included in operations for the period.

 

Comprehensive Income or loss

 

The Company applies the provisions of ASC 220, “Comprehensive Income.” Unrealized gains and losses from foreign exchange translation are reported in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

 

 

 

 

 F-9 

 

 

Earnings or loss per share

 

The Company accounts for earnings or loss per share pursuant to ASC 260, Earnings per Share, which requires disclosure on the financial statements of "basic" and "diluted" earnings (loss) per share. Basic earnings (loss) per share are computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the year. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus potentially dilutive securities outstanding for each year. The computation of diluted earnings (loss) per share has not been presented as its effect would be anti-dilutive.

 

The Company excluded 20,000,000 options and 680,000, 1,105,000 and 3,172,184 warrants from the calculation for the years ended June 30, 2017, 2016, and 2015, respectively, as the exercise prices were in excess of the average closing price of the Company’s common stock. In addition, all conversion prices of convertible debt were in excess of the average closing price of the Company’s common stock, and excluded from the dilutive share calculation.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

ASC 825, Financial Instruments, requires disclosure of any significant off-balance-sheet risk and credit risk concentration. The Company does not have significant off-balance-sheet risk or credit concentration.

 

The Company maintains its cash accounts in a commercial bank and in an institutional money-market fund account. The total cash balances held in a commercial bank are secured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to $250,000 per insured bank. At times, the Company has cash deposits in excess of federally insured limits. In addition, the Institutional Funds Account is insured through the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”) up to $500,000 per customer, including up to $250,000 for cash.

 

Development Stage Entity

 

In June 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-10, which eliminates the concept of a development stage entity, or DSE, in its entirety from GAAP. Under existing guidance, DSEs are required to report incremental information, including inception-to-date financial information, in their financial statements. A DSE is an entity devoting substantially all of its efforts to establishing a new business and for which either planned principal operations have not yet commenced or have commenced but there has been no significant revenues generated from that business. Entities classified as DSEs will no longer be subject to these incremental reporting requirements after adopting ASU No. 2014-10. ASU No. 2014-10 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2014, with early adoption permitted. Retrospective application is required for the elimination of incremental DSE disclosures. Prior to the issuance of ASU No. 2014-10, the Company had met the definition of a DSE since its inception. The Company elected to adopt this ASU early, and therefore it has eliminated the incremental disclosures previously required of DSEs.

 

Recent accounting pronouncements

 

The FASB has issued ASU No. 2014-12, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period. This ASU requires that a performance target that affects vesting, and that could be achieved after the requisite service period, be treated as a performance condition. As such, the performance target should not be reflected in estimating the grant date fair value of the award. This update further clarifies that compensation cost should be recognized in the period in which it becomes probable that the performance target will be achieved and should represent the compensation cost attributable to the period(s) for which the requisite service has already been rendered. The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual periods and interim periods within those annual periods beginning after December 15, 2015. Earlier adoption is permitted. The Company has not yet determined the effect of the adoption of this standard and it is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position and results of operations.

 

In August 2014, the FASB issued a new accounting standard which requires management to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about an entity's ability to continue as a going concern for each annual and interim reporting period. If substantial doubt exists, additional disclosure is required. This new standard became effective for the Company for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is permitted. The Company adopted this standard for the fiscal years ending June 30, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

 

 

 F-10 
 

  

In February 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-02, Consolidation (Topic 810): Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis, which is intended to improve targeted areas of consolidation guidance for legal entities such as limited partnerships, limited liability corporations, and securitization structures (collateralized debt obligations, collateralized loan obligations, and mortgage-backed security transactions). The ASU focuses on the consolidation evaluation for reporting organizations that are required to evaluate whether they should consolidate certain legal entities. In addition to reducing the number of consolidation models from four to two, the new standard simplifies the FASB Accounting Standards Codification and improves current U.S. GAAP by placing more emphasis on risk of loss when determining a controlling financial interest, reducing the frequency of the application of related-party guidance when determining a controlling financial interest in a variable interest entity ("VIE"), and changing consolidation conclusions for companies in several industries that typically make use of limited partnerships or VIEs. The ASU will be effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. We do not expect the adoption of ASU 2015-02 to have a material effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

In April 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2015-03, Interest - Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs, which is intended to simplify presentation of debt issuance costs by requiring that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts. The ASU does not affect the recognition and measurement guidance for debt issuance costs. For public companies, the ASU is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early application is permitted. This updated guidance is not expected to have a material impact on our results of operations, cash flows or financial condition.

 

In April 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-06, Earnings Per Share {Topic 260): Effects on Historical Earnings per Unit of Master Limited Partnership Dropdown Transactions, which specifies that, for purposes of calculating historical earnings per unit under the two-class method, the earnings (losses) of a transferred business before the date of a drop down transaction should be allocated entirely to the general partner. In that circumstance, the previously reported earnings per unit of the limited partners (which is typically the earnings per unit measure presented in the financial statements) would not change as a result of the dropdown transaction. Qualitative disclosures about how the rights to the earnings (losses) differ before and after the dropdown transaction occurs for purposes of computing earnings per unit under the two-class method also are required. The ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Earlier application is permitted. This updated guidance is not expected to have a material impact on our results of operations, cash flows or financial condition.

 

In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14, "Revenue From Contracts With Customers (Topic 606)". The amendments in this ASU defer the effective date of ASU 2014-09 "Revenue From Contracts With Customers (Topic 606)". Public business entities should apply the guidance in ASU 2014-09 to annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim reporting periods within that reporting period. Earlier application is permitted only as of annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim reporting periods within that reporting period. This guidance is not expected to have a material impact on our results of operations, cash flows, or financial condition.

 

In January 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-01, which amends the guidance in U.S. GAAP on the classification and measurement of financial instruments. Changes to the current guidance primarily affect the accounting for equity investments, financial liabilities under the fair value option, and the presentation and disclosure requirements for financial instruments. In addition, the ASU clarifies guidance related to the valuation allowance assessment when recognizing deferred tax assets resulting from unrealized losses on available for-sale debt securities. The new standard is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and upon adoption, an entity should apply the amendments by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment to the balance sheet at the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. Early adoption is not permitted except for the provision to record fair value changes for financial liabilities under the fair value option resulting from instrument-specific credit risk in other comprehensive income. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this guidance.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-02, which amends the guidance in U.S. GAAP on accounting for operating leases, and states that a lessee will be required to recognize assets and liabilities for operating leases with lease terms of more than 12 months on the balance sheet. The new standard is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and upon adoption, an entity should apply the amendments by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment to the balance sheet at the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. Early adoption is not permitted. We are currently evaluating the effect ASU 2016-02 will have on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued an Accounting Standards Update (ASU) "ASU 2016-09 Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting" which is intended to improve the accounting for employee share-based payments. The ASU simplifies several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment award transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and the classification on the statement of cash flows. The new standard is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and upon adoption, an entity should apply the amendments by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment to the balance sheet at the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently evaluating the effect ASU 2016-09 will have on our consolidated financial statements.

 

 

 F-11 
 

 

In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016 — 10 "Revenue from Contract with Customers: identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing". The amendments in this Update clarify the two following aspects (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 in this Update are intended to reduce the degree of judgement necessary to comply with Topic 606. This guidance has no effective date as yet. This guidance is not expected to have a material impact on our results of operations, cash flows, or financial condition.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, "Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments." ASU 2016-15 is intended to reduce diversity in practice in how certain transactions are classified in the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the effect ASU 2016-15 will have on our consolidated statements of cash flows.

 

In May 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. ("ASU") 2017-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation, an amendment to Topic 718. The amendments in this Update provide guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting in Topic 718. 2. An entity should account for the effects of a modification unless all the following are met:

 

1.The fair value (or calculated value or intrinsic value, if such an alternative measurement method is used) of the modified award is the same as the fair value (or calculated value or intrinsic value, if such an alternative measurement method is used) of the original award immediately before the original award is modified. If the modification does not affect any of the inputs to the valuation technique that the entity uses to value the award, the entity is not required to estimate the value immediately before and after the modification.

 

2.The vesting conditions of the modified award are the same as the vesting conditions of the original award immediately before the original award is modified.

 

3.The classification of the modified award as an equity instrument or a liability instrument is the same as the classification of the original award immediately before the original award is modified.

 

The current disclosure requirements in Topic 718 apply regardless of whether an entity is required to apply modification accounting under the amendments in this Update. The amendments in this Update are effective for all entities for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted and should be applied prospectively to an award modified on or after the adoption date. The amendments proposed in this ASU are not expected to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

The Company has reviewed all recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements and does not expect the future adoption of any such pronouncements to have a significant impact on its results of operations, financial condition or cash flow.

 

The FASB has issued new standards for revenue recognition, ASU 2016-12, 2014-09 and 2015-14. These standards apply for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017. Management will assess the potential impact of the adoption of these standards to our financial statements at a later date.

 

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

  

3. Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company adopted ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures. ASC 820 clarifies that fair value is an exit price, representing the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. As such, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or a liability. As a basis for considering such assumptions, ASC 820 establishes a three-tier value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in the valuation methodologies in measuring fair value:

 

Level 1 - Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

Level 2 - Other inputs that are directly or indirectly observable in the marketplace.

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs which are supported by little or no market activity.

 

The fair value hierarchy also requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. Cash (Level 1), note receivables, due to stockholders, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, convertible promissory notes and loans payable (Level 2) are reflected in the balance sheets at carrying value, which approximates fair value due to the short-term nature of these instruments.

4. License Agreement with Tarsin

 

In October 2012, the Company secured a license to market and license the world’s first regulatory compliant mobile platform for delivery of gaming content originally known as CAPSA, which met the standards of the Nevada Gaming Board, from Tarsin Inc. (“Tarsin”) through a licensing agreement. The licensing agreement provided the Company with an exclusive right to license the CAPSA software platform in selected geographical markets throughout Canada and Mexico, along with select customers within the United States (the “Tarsin License”). The CAPSA software platform was capable of providing digital media to a wide range of mobile handsets, and provided for the ability to securely transmit financial information to individual handset owners.

 

Tarsin filed a voluntary petition for bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of California and the Company was a creditor in this Case No. 13-53607. In resolving the bankruptcy case, NYG Holdings LLC (“NYG”) acquired the original intellectual property from Tarsin, which included the first generation CAPSA platform. Effective October 20, 2014, the Company entered into a multi-year license agreement for the CAPSA platform with NYG. The multi-year license agreement was for a five year term renewable annually thereafter. The Company was responsible to pay royalties fees of 10% of net revenues plus $100,000 annually. However, the first 18 months of the agreement were royalty free and the first three years of annual payments were waived. In the spring of 2015, the Company stopped development on the legacy CAPSA platform, as the CAPSA platform was eclipsed by rapid advances in open source software platforms that became commercially available in 2015. The Company never introduced its platform or any products into the market, never generated any revenue and never used the CAPSA platform in any commercial way. Recently, the Company made a decision to recast its business to take advantage of other opportunities that have arisen that do not utilize the CAPSA Platform. On August 31, 2017, the Company and NYG mutually agreed to terminate the license agreement and for the rights, licenses and obligations of each of the parties thereunder to terminate and cease effective December 31, 2016, the time at which NYG discontinued its business. Further, each party has mutually agreed to waive and release the other party from any breaches of the License Agreement by the other party that may have occurred during the term the License Agreement was in effect.

10. Commitments and Contingencies

 

Litigation

 

On or about March 17, 2017, the State of Nevada Department of Employment, Training & Rehabilitation, Employment Security Division obtained a judgment in the First Judicial District Court of the State of Nevada in and for Carson City against Bad Rabbit, Inc. in the amount of $64,674 together with interest thereon for delinquent payroll taxes, penalties and interest. Such amount remains unpaid and continues to accrue interest. The Company has accrued these liabilities.

 

On or about May 24, 2016, a judgment was entered in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Court File No. CV-15-522603) on behalf of Merchant MPowerTec Marketing Inc. (“MPower”) against Consorteum Inc., a Canadian corporation and a long inactive subsidiary of the Company, for the balance of a loan amounting to C$143,500 (US $110,000) owing to MPower along with payment of interest at a rate of 18% being C$145,638 to such date payable to MPower plus court costs of approximately $2,000.

Although the management contracts expired December 31, 2016 both executives continue to serve at the direction of the Board of Directors in their current positions pursuant to the terms of their respective employment agreements that were in effect in 2016.

 

Below is a summary of the continuing obligations of Mr. Fielding’s agreement:

 

  · Base salary of $240,000
  · Reimbursed office expense of $5,000 per month;

Other Matters

 

For the quarterly periods beginning with the quarterly period ended September 30, 2013 and ending with the quarterly period ended June 30, 2015, Bad Rabbit was unable to remit its portion of Federal Employment taxes due to the Company’s cash position. The fully accrued payroll tax liability, including penalties and interest to date, is approximately $585,000. This liability is fully accrued. Bad Rabbit ceased operations in 2015. The Company is currently in discussions with tax professionals to work out a settlement of all amounts including penalties and interest and a mutually acceptable installment payment plan with the IRS.

 

In October 2012, the Company secured a license to market and license the world’s first regulatory compliant mobile platform for delivery of gaming content originally known as CAPSA, which met the standards of the Nevada Gaming Board, from Tarsin Inc. (“Tarsin”) through a licensing agreement. The licensing agreement provided the Company with an exclusive right to license the CAPSA software platform in selected geographical markets throughout Canada and Mexico, along with select customers within the United States (the “Tarsin License”). The CAPSA software platform was capable of providing digital media to a wide range of mobile handsets, and provided for the ability to securely transmit financial information to individual handset owners.

 

Tarsin filed a voluntary petition for bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of California and the Company was a creditor in this Case No. 13-53607. In resolving the bankruptcy case, NYG Holdings LLC (“NYG”) acquired the original intellectual property from Tarsin, which included the first generation CAPSA platform. Effective October 20, 2014, the Company entered into a multi-year license agreement for the CAPSA platform with NYG. The multi-year license agreement was for a five year term renewable annually thereafter. The Company was responsible to pay royalties fees of 10% of net revenues plus $100,000 annually. However, the first 18 months of the agreement were royalty free and the first three years of annual payments were waived. In the spring of 2015, the Company stopped development on the legacy CAPSA platform, as the CAPSA platform was eclipsed by rapid advances in open source software platforms that became commercially available in 2015. The Company never introduced its platform or any products into the market, never generated any revenue and never used the CAPSA platform in any commercial way. Recently, the Company made a decision to recast its business to take advantage of other opportunities that have arisen that do not utilize the CAPSA Platform. On August 31, 2017, the Company and NYG mutually agreed to terminate the license agreement and for the rights, licenses and obligations of each of the parties thereunder to terminate and cease effective December 31, 2016, the time at which NYG discontinued its business. Further, each party has mutually agreed to waive and release the other party from any breaches of the License Agreement by the other party that may have occurred during the term the License Agreement was in effect.

 

The Company’s corporate headquarters are located at 1870 The Exchange, Suite 100, Atlanta, Georgia 30339-2021. These premises consist of approximately 600 square feet in a multi-tenant building leased by the Company from an unaffiliated third party pursuant to a month-to-month lease with the option to convert to a longer term at the Company’s sole option. Current monthly rent under this lease is approximately $2,500.

 

In addition, the Company has a virtual office space in the London Bridge News Building located at 3 London Bridge Street, London SE19SG England These premises consist of approximately 100 square feet in a multi-tenant building leased by the Company from an unaffiliated third party pursuant to a month-to-month lease with the option to convert to a longer term at the Company’s sole option. Current monthly rent under this lease is approximately $200.

11. Stockholders’ Deficit

 

As of June 30, 2017, the Company was authorized to issue 500,000,000 shares of common stock and 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock. At such time, assuming all of the rights and obligations to issue approximately 556,000,000 shares of common stock under convertible notes, warrants and stock options became due as of June 30, 2017, the Company would not have sufficient authorized common shares to fulfill such obligations. On October 11, 2017, the Company increased the authorized shares of common stock to 2 billion.

 

Preferred Stock

 

As of June 30, 2017, the Company has 100,000,000 preferred shares authorized, having a par value of $.001 per share.

 

Of the preferred shares authorized, 5,000,000 have been designated as Series A preferred shares, 15,000,000 have been designated as Series B preferred shares, and 40,000,000 have been designated as Series C preferred shares. The rights and privileges of the Series A shares consist of super voting rights at 200 votes per share held, conversion rights on a one-to-one basis with common stock, and liquidation preference as described below. The rights and privileges of the Series B shares consist of voting rights equal to one vote per share held, conversion rights equal to Series A and liquidation preference as described below. The Series C shares are entitled to one vote per share held, will pay no dividend, are each convertible into four (4) shares of common stock, and have a liquidation preference junior to the Series A and B Preferred Stock. No Series C shares had been issued as of June 30, 2017.

 

Upon any liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary, before any distribution or payment shall be made to the holders of any common stock or Series B and Series C preferred stock liquidation preference, the holders of the Series A preferred stock shall be entitled to be paid out of the assets of the Company an amount per share of Series A Preferred Stock equal to the product of (i) the original amount paid by the holder thereof for each share of Series A Preferred Stock owned by such holder as of the effective date of such liquidation, multiplied by (ii) the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock owned of record by such holder as of the liquidation date (as adjusted for any combinations, splits, recapitalization and the like with respect to such shares). Series B preferred stock is next in liquidation preference after the Series A preferred stock, and is computed consistently with the formula above for the Series A preferred stock. Series C preferred stock is next in liquidation preference after the Series B preferred stock, and is computed consistently with the formula above for the Series B preferred stock.

 

During fiscal 2017, the Company issued 2,000,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock to its primary convertible noteholder.

 

Common Stock

 

The Company recently increased its authorized number of shares of common stock available for future issuance in order to have shares available for a variety of corporate purposes including the conversion to common stock of outstanding convertible notes. The Company’s Articles of Incorporation previously authorized it to issue up to 500,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $.001 per share. The Company does not propose to increase our authorized preferred stock, which will remain unchanged. In October 2017, the Company increased the authorized shares of its common stock to 2 billion.

 

During fiscal 2016, the Company issued the following shares of common stock:

 

  · 5,000,000 shares of common stock in connection with an asset purchase agreement issued to a related party for the purchase of advertising trade credit.

12. Income Tax

 

The Company's income taxes are as follows:

 

   June 30,   June 30,   June 30, 
   2017   2016   2015 
Expected income tax benefit at the combined
statutory rate of 35%
  $1,284,900   $1,178,000   $1,574,100 
Non-deductible stock compensation and other           (6,470)
U.S. effective rate in excess of Canadian tax rate   (56,000)   (56,700)   (65,520)
Valuation allowance   (1,228,900)   (1,121,300)   (1,502,110)
Benefit from income taxes  $   $   $ 

 

The components of deferred tax assets are as follows:

 

   June 30,
2017
   June 30,
2016
   June 30,
2015
 
Net operating loss carry forwards  $4,548,800   $3,432,000   $2,424,000 
Accounts payable and accrued liabilities            
Valuation allowance   (4,548,800)   (3,432,000)   (2,424,000)
Net  $   $   $ 

 

The components of net loss for fiscal 2017, 2016 and 2015 before income tax consisted of the following: 

 

   Year Ended June 30, 
$ Description  2017   2016   2015 
U.S. Operations  $(2,863,675)  $(2,584,353)  $(3,532,590)
Canadian Operations   (430,814)   (436,221)   (503,997)
Total net loss  $(3,294,489)  $(3,020,574)  $(4,036,587)

 

The Company has net operating loss carry forwards available to be applied against future years' taxable income. Due to the losses from operations and expected future operating results, it is more likely than not that the deferred tax asset resulting from the tax losses available for carry forward will not be realized through the reduction of future income tax payments. Accordingly, a 100% valuation allowance has been recorded for deferred tax assets and current income taxes.

 

As of June 30, 2017, the Company had approximately $13,051,000 of Federal, provincial and state net operating loss (“NOL”) carry forwards available to offset future years’ taxable income. Such carry forwards expire between 2030 and 2036. Due to a change in ownership as defined under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code due to share issuances exceeding 50%, these net operating losses will likely be limited to a nominal amount, annually. During the year ended June 30, 2017, the Company excluded NOLs prior to fiscal 2012 from its deferred tax assets. The Canadian NOL are calculated using the Canadian tax rate of 26% compared to the U.S. tax rate of 35%.

 

 

 F-19 
 

 

 

The Company has not filed its United States Federal and State tax returns for the years ranging from June 30, 2011 - 2017. Management intends to comply with the requirements to file the tax returns upon raising capital. Failure to file the tax returns could result in penalties assessed against the Company. The Company has identified the United States as its "major" tax jurisdiction.  The United States Federal return years 2008 through 2011 are still subject to tax examination by the United States Internal Revenue Service; however, we do not currently have any ongoing tax examinations.

  

13. Subsequent Events

 

From July 1, 2017 through November 3, 2017 the Company raised funding in the amount of approximately $240,000 attributable to advances from an existing noteholder.

 

On August 12, 2017, the Company issued 2,000,000 shares of Series B preferred stock to a convertible noteholder.

 

On September 1, 2017, the Board of Directors approved actions to increase the Company’s authorized common stock from 500 million to 2 billion shares. In conjunction therewith, the Company filed a Form 14C with the Securities and Exchange Commission and a Notice and Information Statement to stockholders was mailed to all stockholders on September 19, 2017. The charter amendment was effective October 11, 2017.
