2. Going Concern and Management’s Plans
At December 31, 2020, the Company’s principal sources of liquidity were its cash and cash equivalents and the net proceeds from the sale of common stock during the twelve months ended December 31, 2020.
The Company had an accumulated deficit of ($93,022,835) at December 31, 2020. During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company generated a net loss from continuing operations of approximately ($4,158,000) and used cash in continuing operations during the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 of approximately $3,337,000. At December 31, 2020, the Company had a cash balance of $2,117,569. Total revenues during the year ended December 31, 2020 were approximately $4,457,000 compared to total revenues of approximately $5,025,000 during the year ended December 31, 2019. The Company had a working capital deficiency from continuing operations of approximately ($1,156,000) and ($2,114,000) at December 31, 2020 and 2019. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to further implement its business plan, raise capital, and generate revenues. The consolidated financial information contained herein does not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.
Management believes that its available cash on hand and cash flows from operations may not be sufficient to meet our working capital requirements for the next twelve months. In order to accomplish our business plan objectives, the Company will need to continue its cost reduction efforts, increase revenues, raise capital through the issuance of common stock, or through a strategic merger or acquisition. However, there can be no assurances that our business plans and actions will be successful, that we will generate anticipated revenues, or that unforeseen circumstances will not require additional funding sources or impact plans to conserve liquidity. Future efforts to improve liquidity through the issuance of our common stock may not be successful, or if available, they may not be negotiable on acceptable terms.
On March 22, 2020, the Company entered into an agreement with Malven Group Limited, a company established under the laws of the British Virgin Islands (“Malven”), in connection with the purchase by Malven of 1,939,237 shares of common stock of the Company (collectively the “Shares”) at a price of $0.7735 per share for gross proceeds of $1,500,000. The closing of the transaction took place on March 30, 2020.On June 26, 2020, Malven purchased additional 312,500 shares of common stock of the Company at a price of $3.20 per share for gross proceeds of $1,000,000. The closing date of the transaction was June 29, 2020 and gross proceeds of $1,000,000 were received in July 2020.
On July 27, 2020, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with three institutional accredited investors. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company offered and sold 1,481,484 shares of its common stock at a per share price of $1.35 for gross proceeds of approximately $2,000,000 pursuant to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration Statement No. 333-227249) (the “Transaction”). The Transaction closed on July 29, 2020 and the Company received net proceeds of $1,814,353, after deducting financial advisory, legal and escrow related fees.
On February 1, 2021, the Company entered into a private placement with Ms. Yiran Gu, in which the Company sold 500,000 shares of its common stock at a price per share of $2.00 for gross proceeds of $1,000,000.
