PROSPECTIVE INVESTORS SHOULD BE AWARE THAT PURCHASING UNITS IS A SPECULATIVE INVESTMENT AND INVOLVES A HIGH DEGREE OF RISK. PROSPECTIVE INVESTORS SHOULD CAREFULLY READ THIS MEMORANDUM AND ALL EXHIBITS PRIOR TO MAKING AN INVESTMENT AND SHOULD BE ABLE TO BEAR THE COMPLETE LOSS OF THEIR INVESTMENT.
In addition to the negative implications of all information and ﬁnancial data included or referred to directly in this Memorandum, prospective investors should consider the following risk factors before making an investment in Units. his Memorandum contains forward-looking statements and information concerning the Company, its investment plans, and other future events. hese statements should be read together with the discussion of risk factors set forth below because those risk factors could cause actual results to diﬀer materially from such forward-looking statements. he cautionary statements set forth under this section and elsewhere in this Memorandum identify important factors with respect to forward-looking statements.
Investment and Oﬀering Risks
The purchase of Units is not a diversiﬁed investment. Because the Company intends to operate as a specialized robotics company, the Company is not a diversiﬁed investment. he poor performance of the Company’s products could adversely aﬀect the proﬁtability of the Company.
An inability to raise substantial funds in this Oﬀering could have a substantial eﬀect on the Company’s ﬁnancing strategy. Units will be oﬀered and sold on a “best eﬀorts” basis. No investor has made a ﬁrm commitment or obligation to purchase any Units. As a result, the proceeds raised in this Oﬀering may be substantially less than the amount the Company would need to meet its objectives. he Company may proceed with alternative ﬁnancing (potentially on diﬀerent terms than oﬀered herein) in order to meet its operational goals. It is not certain the Company would be able to successfully negotiate any such alternative ﬁnancing, which could materially and negatively impact its investment objectives.
The Company cannot assure investors that the Oﬀering price of Units is an accurate reﬂection of their value. he Oﬀering price of Units has been determined by the Company taking into account its Oﬀering expenses, prospects, the number of securities to be oﬀered, and the general condition of the securities market, all as assessed by its management. Such prices are not directly correlated to the Company’s assets, earnings, net tangible book value, or any other traditional criteria of value.
The purchase of Units is a speculative investment. he Company’s business objectives must be considered highly speculative. No assurance can be given that prospective investors will realize their investment objectives or will realize a substantial return (if any) on their investment or that they will not lose their entire investment in the Company. For this reason, each prospective investor should carefully read this Memorandum and all Exhibits hereto in their entirety. PROSPECTIVE INVESTORS SHOULD CONSULT WITH THEIR ATTORNEYS, ACCOUNTANTS, AND BUSINESS ADVISERS PRIOR TO MAKING AN INVESTMENT.
Restrictions on transferability of securities will limit the ability of purchasers to transfer their Units. Units oﬀered hereby and the securities comprising the Units will be “restricted securities” within the meaning of the Securities Act and, consequently, will be subject to the restrictions on transfer set forth in the Securities Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. In addition, such securities are subject to restrictions on transfer under applicable state securities laws under which such securities are sold in reliance on certain exemptions or under the provisions of certain qualiﬁcations. As restricted securities, the securities may not be sold in the absence of registration or the availability of an exemption from such registration requirements. It is not contemplated that registration of Units or the underlying securities under the Securities Act or other securities laws will be eﬀected.
Units are expected to be oﬀered under a private oﬀering exemption, and if it were later determined that such exemption was not available, purchasers would be entitled to rescind their purchase agreements. Units are being oﬀered to prospective investors pursuant to the so-called limited or private oﬀering exemption from registration under Section 4(a)(2) and Rule 506(c) of Regulation D under the Securities Act. Unless the sale of Units should qualify for such exemption, either pursuant to Regulation D promulgated thereunder or otherwise, the investors might have the right to rescind their purchase of Units. Since compliance with these exemptions is highly technical, it is possible that if an investor were to seek rescission, such investor would succeed. A similar situation prevails under state law in those states where Units may be oﬀered without registration. If a number of investors were to be successful in seeking rescission, the Company would face severe ﬁnancial demands that could adversely aﬀect the Company and, thus, the non-rescinding investors. Inasmuch as the basis for relying on exemptions is factual, depending on the Company’s conduct and the conduct of persons contacting prospective investors and making the Oﬀering, the Company will not receive a legal opinion to the eﬀect that this Oﬀering is exempt from registration under any federal or state law. Instead, the Company will rely on the operative facts as documented as the Company’s basis for such exemptions.
This Oﬀering has not been registered with the SEC or any state securities authorities. his Oﬀering will not be registered or qualiﬁed with the SEC under the Securities Act or with the securities agency of any state, and Units are being oﬀered in reliance upon an exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act and state securities laws applicable only to oﬀers and sales to investors for Units meeting the suitability requirements set forth in this Memorandum. Since this is a nonpublic Oﬀering and, as such, is not registered under federal or state securities laws, prospective investors for Units will not have the beneﬁt of review by the SEC or any state securities regulatory authority. he terms and conditions of the Oﬀering may not comply with the guidelines and regulations established for oﬀerings that are required to be registered and qualiﬁed with those agencies.
We have established preferred stock which can be designated by the Company’s Board of Directors without shareholder approval. The Company has 6,000,000 shares of preferred stock authorized, but zero shares of preferred stock issued and outstanding as of the date of this Memorandum. If all the Units are sold in this Offering, at the close of the Offering 400 shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall be outstanding along with 400 Warrants. See DESCRIPTION OF SECURITIES on page 35 for a description of the Series A Preferred stock. The shares of preferred stock of the Company may be issued from time to time in one or more series, each of which shall have a distinctive designation or title as shall be determined by the board of directors of the Company prior to the issuance of any shares thereof. The preferred stock shall have such voting powers, full or limited, or no voting powers, and such preferences and relative, participating, optional or other special rights and such qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof as adopted by the board of directors. Because the board of directors is able to designate the powers and preferences of the preferred stock without the vote of a majority of the Company’s shareholders, shareholders of the Company will have no control over what designations and preferences the Company’s preferred stock will have. The issuance of shares of preferred stock or the rights associated therewith could cause substantial dilution to our existing shareholders. Additionally, the dilutive effect of any preferred stock which we may issue may be exacerbated given the fact that such preferred stock may have voting rights and/or other rights or preferences which could provide the preferred shareholders with substantial voting control over us and/or give those holders the power to prevent or cause a change in control, even if that change in control might benefit our shareholders. As a result, the issuance of shares of preferred stock may cause the value of our securities to decrease.
There is no assurance that we will pay dividends to our Shareholders. While we may choose to pay dividends at some point in the future to our shareholders, there can be no assurance that cash flow and profits will allow such distributions to ever be made.
We have made assumptions in our projections and in Forward-Looking Statements that may not be accurate. The discussions and information in this offering may contain both historical and “forward- looking statements” which can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology including the terms “believes,” “anticipates,” “continues,” “expects,” “intends,” “may,” “will,” “would,” “should,” or, in each case, their negative or other variations or comparable terminology. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include matters that are not historical facts. Forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances. Forward-looking statements contained in this offering, based on past trends or activities, should not be taken as a representation that such trends or activities will continue in the future. To the extent that the offering contains forward-looking statements regarding the financial condition, operating results, business prospects, or any other aspect of our business, please be advised that our actual financial condition, operating results, and business performance may differ materially from that projected or estimated by us. We have attempted to identify, in context, certain of the factors we currently believe may cause actual future experience and results to differ from our current expectations. The differences may be caused by a variety of factors, including but not limited to adverse economic conditions, lack of market acceptance, reduction of consumer demand, unexpected costs and operating deficits, lower sales and revenues than forecast, default on leases or other indebtedness, loss of suppliers, loss of supply, loss of distribution and service contracts, price increases for capital, supplies and materials, inadequate capital, inability to raise capital or financing, failure to obtain customers, loss of customers, the risk of litigation and administrative proceedings involving the Company or its employees, loss of government licenses and permits or failure to obtain them, higher than anticipated labor costs, the possible acquisition of new businesses or products that result in operating losses or that do not perform as anticipated, resulting in unanticipated losses, the possible fluctuation and volatility of the Company’s operating results and financial condition, adverse publicity and news coverage, inability to carry out marketing and sales plans, loss of key executives, changes in interest rates, inflationary factors, and other specific risks that may be referred to in this offering or in other reports issued by us or by third-party publishers.
There is no public market for our preferred stock or Warrants and the share price of our common stock has been, and will likely continue to be, volatile, and you may be unable to resell any converted shares at or above the price at which you acquired them. The trading price of our common stock has been, and is likely to continue to be, highly volatile and could be subject to wide fluctuations in response to various factors, some of which are beyond our control.
The market price for our securities may be influenced by many factors that are beyond our control, including, but not limited to:
- variations in our revenue and operating expenses;
- market conditions in our industry and the economy as a whole;
- actual or expected changes in our growth rates or our competitors’ growth rates;
- developments or disputes concerning patent applications, issued patents or other proprietary rights;
- developments in the financial markets and worldwide or regional economies;
- variations in our financial results or those of companies that are perceived to be similar to us;
- announcements by the government relating to regulations that govern our industry;
- sales of our common stock or other securities by us or in the open market;
- changes in the market valuations of other comparable companies; and
- general economic, industry and market
The trading price of our shares might also decline in reaction to events that affect other companies in our industry, even if these events do not directly affect us. Each of these factors, among others, could harm the value of your investment in our securities. In the past, following periods of volatility in the market, securities class-action litigation has often been instituted against companies. Such litigation, if instituted against us, could result in substantial costs and diversion of management’s attention and resources, which could materially and adversely affect our business, operating results and financial condition.
We have broad discretion in the use of the net proceeds from this Offering and may not use them effectively. Our management will have broad discretion in the application of the net proceeds, including for any of the purposes described in the section of this Memorandum entitled “Use of Proceeds.” You will be relying on the judgment of our management with regard to the use of these net proceeds, and you will not have the opportunity, as part of your investment decision, to assess whether the net proceeds are being used appropriately. The failure by our management to apply these funds effectively could result in financial losses that could have a material adverse effect on our business, causing the price of our securities to decline. Pending the application of these funds, we may invest the net proceeds from this Offering in a manner that does not produce income or that loses value.
Sales of a substantial number of shares of our preferred stock following this Offering may adversely affect the market price of our preferred stock and the issuance of additional shares will dilute all other stockholders. Sales of a substantial number of shares of our preferred stock following this Offering, or the perception that such sales could occur, could adversely affect the price of our preferred stock. Our articles of incorporation, as amended, permit the issuance of up to approximately 6,000,000 total shares of preferred stock including 1,000,000 total shares of Series A Preferred Stock. Thus, we have the ability to issue substantial amounts of preferred stock in the future, which would dilute the percentage ownership held by the investors who purchase shares of our preferred stock in this Offering.
Anti-takeover provisions in our charter and Nevada law could discourage, delay or prevent a change in control of the Company and may affect the trading price of our common stock. We are a Nevada corporation, and the anti-takeover provisions of the Nevada Revised Statutes may discourage, delay or prevent a change in control by prohibiting us from engaging in a business combination with an interested stockholder for a period of three years after the person becomes an interested stockholder, even if a change in control would be beneficial to our existing stockholders. In addition, our articles of incorporation and bylaws may discourage, delay or prevent a change in our management or control over us that stockholders may consider favorable.
Our articles of incorporation and bylaws:
- authorize the issuance of “blank check” preferred stock that could be issued by our Board of Directors to thwart a takeover attempt;
- provide that vacancies on our Board of Directors, including newly created directorships, may be filled by a majority vote of directors then in office;
- place restrictive requirements (including advance notification of stockholder nominations and proposals) on how special meetings of stockholders may be called by our stockholders;
- do not provide stockholders with the ability to cumulate their votes
Our largest stockholder beneficially owns a significant number of shares of our common stock. Such stockholder’s interests may conflict with other stockholders, who may be unable to influence management and exercise control over our business. As of the date of this offering, our largest stockholder, Parashar Patel, owns 301,956,000 shares or approximately 64.32% of our shares of common stock currently outstanding. As a result, such stockholder may be able to: elect or defeat the election of our directors, amend or prevent amendment to our certificates of incorporation or bylaws, effect or prevent a merger, sale of assets or other corporate transaction, and control the outcome of any other matter submitted to the stockholders for vote. Accordingly, other stockholders may be unable to influence management and exercise control over our business.
Because we have not paid dividends in the past and do not expect to pay dividends in the near future, any return on investment may be limited to the value of our shares. We have never paid cash dividends on our stock and do not anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. The payment of dividends on our stock will depend on earnings, financial condition and other business and economic factors affecting it at such a time that management may consider relevant. If we do not pay dividends, our stock may be less valuable because a return on your investment will only occur if its stock price appreciates.
Our common stock into which the Warrants and preferred Shares may be converted is thinly-traded, and in the future, may continue to be thinly-traded, and you may be unable to sell at or near ask prices or at all if you need to sell your shares to raise money or otherwise desire to liquidate such shares.
We cannot predict the extent to which an active public market for our common stock will develop or be sustained due to a number of factors, including the fact that we are a small company that is relatively unknown to stock analysts, stock brokers, institutional investors, and others in the investment community that generate or influence sales volume, and that even if we came to the attention of such persons, they tend to be risk-averse and would be reluctant to follow an unproven company such as ours or purchase or recommend the purchase of our shares until such time as we became more seasoned and viable. As a consequence, there may be periods of several days or more when trading activity in our shares is minimal, as compared to a seasoned issuer which has a large and steady volume of trading activity that will generally support continuous sales without an adverse effect on share price. We cannot give you any assurance that a broader or more active public trading market for our common stock will develop or be sustained, or that current trading levels will be sustained.
The market price for our common stock may be particularly volatile given that we are a relatively small company and have experienced losses from operations that could lead to wide fluctuations in our share price. You may be unable to sell your common stock at or above your purchase price if at all, which may result in substantial losses to you.
Our common stock, into which preferred Shares and Warrants may be converted, may be subject to penny stock rules, which may make it more difficult for our stockholders to sell their common stock.
Broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in “penny stocks” are regulated by certain penny stock rules adopted by the SEC. Penny stocks generally are equity securities with a price of less than $5.00 per share. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a purchase or sale of a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver to the customer a standardized risk disclosure document that provides information about penny stocks and the risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction, and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. In addition, the penny stock rules generally require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock the broker-dealer make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for a stock that becomes subject to the penny stock rules.
The Company’s Board of Directors and executives have signiﬁcant ﬂexibility with regard to the Company’s operations and investments. he Company’s agreements and arrangements with its management and their Aﬃliates have been established by the Board of Directors and may not be on an arm’s-length basis. he Board of Directors and our executives have considerable discretion with respect to all decisions relating to the terms and timing of transactions.
There may be signiﬁcant conﬂicts of interest between the management and its Aﬃliates and the Company. he management and their Aﬃliates may engage in activities other than the ownership, service, and management of the Company, some of which may have similar objectives as the Company.
The liability of the management is limited. As a result of certain exculpation and indemniﬁcation provisions in the Certiﬁcate of Incorporation and Bylaws, the Company’s Board of Directors and oﬃcers may not be liable to the Company or its investors for errors of judgment or other acts or omissions not constituting fraud, intentional misconduct, criminal act, or gross negligence. A successful claim for such indemniﬁcation would deplete the assets of the Company by the amount paid.
Any projected results of operations included in this Memorandum are forward-looking statements that involve signiﬁcant risks and uncertainty. All materials or documents supplied by the Company should be considered speculative and are qualiﬁed in their entirety by the assumptions, information, and risks disclosed in this Memorandum. he assumptions and facts upon which such projections are based are subject to variations that may arise as future events actually occur, many of which are outside the Company’s control. Any projections included herein are based on assumptions made regarding future events. here is no assurance that actual events will correspond with these assumptions. Actual results for any period may or may not equal currently estimated, approximate projections and may diﬀer signiﬁcantly. Therefore, prospective investors should consult with their tax and business advisers about the validity and reasonableness of the factual, accounting, and tax assumptions contained in this Memorandum and the Exhibits to this Memorandum. Neither the Company nor any other person or entity has been authorized to make any representation or warranty as to the future proﬁtability of the Company or of an investment in Units.
The borrowing of funds increases the risks of adverse eﬀects on the Company’s ﬁnancial condition. he Company may seek other capital sources if needed in the future to execute its business plan. he Company may incur certain indebtedness with debt ﬁnancing to raise that capital. Payments of principal and interest will reduce cash available for distribution and/or reserve funds set aside for contingencies. If variable rate debt is incurred, increases in interest rates would increase interest costs, which would reduce the Company’s returns. If the Company is unable to obtain such ﬁnancing, that failure to do so may have a material and adverse eﬀect on the Company’s operations. In such an event, investors could lose some or all of their investments.
We rely on suppliers to provide equipment, components, and services. Our business requires that we buy equipment, components, and services including finished products, electronic components, and commodities. Our reliance on suppliers involves certain risks, including: shortages of components, commodities, or other materials, which could adversely affect our manufacturing efficiencies and ability to make timely delivery of our products, solutions, and services; changes in the cost of these purchases due to inflation, exchange rate fluctuations, taxes, tariffs, commodity market volatility, or other factors that affect our suppliers; poor quality or an insecure supply chain, which could adversely affect the reliability and reputation of our hardware and software products, solutions, and services; embargoes, sanctions, and other trade restrictions that may affect our ability to purchase from various suppliers; and intellectual property risks such as challenges to ownership of rights or alleged infringement by suppliers. Certain skills and experiences are very competitive, and difficulty attracting, developing, and retaining members of our management team and key employees could have a negative effect on our business, operating results, and financial condition. Maintaining a positive and inclusive culture and work environment, offering attractive compensation, benefits, and development opportunities, and effectively implementing processes and technology that enable our employees to work effectively and efficiently are important to our ability to attract and retain employees.
We rely heavily on technology in our hardware and software products, solutions, and services for our customers’ manufacturing environment, and in our enterprise infrastructure. Despite the implementation of security measures, our systems are vulnerable to unauthorized access by nation states, hackers, cyber- criminals, malicious insiders, and other actors who may engage in fraud, theft of confidential or proprietary information, or sabotage. Our systems could be compromised by malware (including ransomware), cyber- attacks, and other events, ranging from widespread, non-targeted, global cyber threats to targeted advanced persistent threats. Given that our hardware and software products, solutions, and services are used in critical infrastructure, these threats could indicate increased risk for our products, services, solutions, manufacturing, and IT infrastructure. Past global cyber-attacks have also been perpetuated by compromising software updates in widely used software products, increasing the risk that vulnerabilities or malicious content could be inserted into our products. In some cases, malware attacks were spread throughout the supply chain, moving from one company to the next via authorized network connections. Levels of innovation, and the development process is often lengthy and costly. If we are not able to anticipate, identify, develop, and market products that respond to changes in customer preferences and emerging technological and broader industry trends, demand for our products could decline.
If our products contain significant defects, we could incur significant expenses to remediate such defects, our reputation could be damaged, and we could lose market share. Our hardware and software product offerings are complex and may contain defects or security vulnerabilities, or experience failures or unsatisfactory performance due to any number of issues in design, fabrication, packaging, materials and/or use within a system. These risks may increase as our products are introduced into new devices, markets, technologies and applications or as new versions are released. Some errors in our products or services may only be discovered after a product or service has been shipped or used. Undiscovered vulnerabilities in our products or services could expose our end customers to unscrupulous third parties who develop and deploy malicious software programs that could attack our products or services. Any such defect may cause us to incur significant warranty, support and repair or replacement costs as part of a product recall or otherwise, write-off the value of related inventory, and divert the attention of our engineering personnel from our product development efforts to find and correct the issue. An error or defect in new products or releases or related software drivers after commencement of commercial shipments could result in failure to achieve market acceptance, loss of design wins, and harm to our relationships with existing and prospective customers and partners and consumers’ perceptions of our brand, which would in turn negatively impact our business operations, gross margin, revenue and/or financial results. We may be required to reimburse our customers, partners or consumers, including for costs to repair or replace products in the field. If a product liability claim is brought against us, the cost of defending the claim could be significant and would divert the efforts of our technical and management personnel and harm our business. Further, our business liability insurance may be inadequate or future coverage may be unavailable on acceptable terms, which could adversely impact our financial results.
Issues relating to the responsible use of AI in our offerings may result in reputational harm and liability. Concerns relating to the responsible use of new and evolving technologies, such as AI, in our products and services, may result in reputational harm and liability, and may cause us to incur costs to resolve such issues. We are increasingly building AI capabilities into many of our products and services. AI presents risks and challenges that could affect its adoption, and therefore our business. AI poses emerging ethical issues and if we enable or offer solutions that draw controversy due to their perceived or actual impact on society, or if we are unable to develop effective internal policies and frameworks relating to the responsible development and use of AI models and systems offered through our sales channels, we may experience brand or reputational harm, competitive harm or legal liability. Compliance with government regulation in the area of AI ethics may also increase the cost of related research and development. Our failure to address concerns relating to the responsible use of AI by us or others could undermine public confidence in AI and slow adoption of AI in our products and services or cause reputational harm.
We have historically suffered net losses, and we may not be able to sustain profitability. We had an accumulated deficit of $14,888,035 as of December 31, 2022, and we expect to continue to incur significant development expenses in the foreseeable future related to the completion of the development and commercialization of our products. As a result, we are incurring operating and net losses, and it is possible that we may never be able to sustain the revenue levels necessary to achieve and sustain profitability. If we fail to generate sufficient revenues to operate profitably on a consistent basis, or if we are unable to fund our continuing losses, you could lose all or part of your investment.
We have substantial doubt in our ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming we will continue as a going concern, which contemplates, among other things, the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. Our independent registered public accounting firm has issued a report that includes an explanatory paragraph referring to our recurring losses from operations and expressing substantial doubt in our ability to continue as a going concern without additional capital becoming available.
We believe that the successful completion of this Offering will eliminate this doubt and enable us to continue as a going concern; however, if we are unable to raise sufficient capital in this Offering, we may need to obtain alternative financing or significantly modify our operational plans in order to continue operations.
We will need additional financing to continue to fund our operations. We may raise capital through loans from current stockholders, public or private equity or debt offerings, grants, or strategic arrangements with third parties. There can be no assurance that additional capital will be available to us on acceptable terms, or at all.
We rely upon a few select key employees who are instrumental in our ability to conduct and grow our business. In the event any of those key employees are no longer affiliated with the Company, it may have a material detrimental impact as to our ability to successfully operate our business. Our success is heavily dependent upon the continued active participation of our current management team, especially our current executive officer. The loss of this individual could have a material adverse effect upon our business, financial condition, or results of operations. Further, our success and the achievement of our growth plans depends on our ability to recruit, hire, train, and retain other highly qualified technical and managerial personnel. Competition for qualified employees among companies in our industry, and the loss of any of such persons, or an inability to attract, retain, and motivate any additional highly skilled employees required for the expansion of our activities, could have a materially adverse effect on our business. If we are unable to attract and retain the necessary personnel, consultants, and advisors, it could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, or operations.
We may have difficulty raising additional capital, which could deprive us of necessary resources, and you may experience dilution or subordinate stockholder rights, preferences and privileges as a result of our financing efforts. We expect to continue to devote significant capital resources to fund the continued development of our products and related technologies. In order to support the initiatives envisioned in our business plan, we will need to raise additional funds through the sale of public or private debt or equity financing or other arrangements. Our ability to raise additional financing depends on many factors beyond our control, including the state of capital markets, the market price of our stock and the development or prospects for development of competitive technologies by others. Sufficient additional financing may not be available to us or may be available only on terms that would result in further dilution to the current owners of our stock.
We expect to obtain additional capital during 2023 through financing structures. We also expect that the net proceeds from this Offering, along with our current cash position, will enable us to fund our operating expenses and capital expenditure requirements for the next 12 months. Thereafter, unless we can achieve and sustain profitability, we anticipate that we will need to raise additional capital to fund our operations while we implement and execute our business plan.
Any future equity financing may involve substantial dilution to our then existing shareholders. Any future debt financing could involve restrictive covenants relating to our capital raising activities and other financial and operational matters, which may make it more difficult for us to obtain additional capital and to pursue business opportunities. There can be no assurance that such additional capital will be available, on a timely basis, or on terms acceptable to us. If we are unsuccessful in raising additional capital or the terms of raising such capital are unacceptable, then we may have to modify our business plan and/or curtail our planned activities and other operations.
If we raise additional funds through government or other third-party funding, collaborations, strategic alliances, licensing arrangements or marketing and distribution arrangements, we may have to relinquish valuable rights to our technologies, future revenue stream or grant licenses on terms that may not be favorable to us. If we are unable to raise additional funds through equity or debt financings when needed, we may be required to delay, limit, reduce or terminate our product development or future commercialization efforts or grant rights to develop and market products that we would otherwise prefer to develop and market ourselves.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had and may continue to have a negative impact on our business and operations. A significant outbreak, epidemic or pandemic of contagious diseases in any geographic area in which we operate or plan to operate could result in a health crisis adversely affecting the economies, financial markets and overall demand for our services in such areas. In addition, any preventative or protective actions that governments implement or that we take in response to a health crisis, such as travel restrictions, quarantines, or site closures, may interfere with the ability of our employees, suppliers and customers to perform their responsibilities. Such results could have a material adverse effect on our business development. It is uncertain as to the full magnitude that any future pandemic will have on our financial condition, liquidity, and future results of operations. To the extent the COVID-19 pandemic or a similar public health threat has an impact on our business, it is likely to also have the effect of heightening many of the other risks described in this “Risk Factors” section.
Economic conditions in the current period of disruption and instability could adversely affect our ability to access the capital markets, in both the near and long term, and thus adversely affect our business and liquidity. The current economic conditions related to inflation and rising interest rates have had, and likely will continue to have for the foreseeable future, a negative impact on the capital markets. Even if we can raise capital, it may not be at a price or on terms that are favorable to us. We cannot predict the occurrence of future disruptions or how long the current conditions may continue.
Current uncertainty in global economic conditions, including, volatility and inflation resulting from the Russia-Ukraine conflict, could adversely affect our revenue and business. Global inflation increased during 2022. The Russia-Ukraine conflict and other geopolitical tensions, as well as the related international response, have exacerbated inflationary pressures, including causing increases in the price for goods and services and exacerbated global supply chain disruptions, which have resulted in, and may continue to result in, shortages in materials and services and related uncertainties. Such shortages have resulted in, and may continue to result in, cost increases for labor, fuel, materials and services, and could continue to cause costs to increase, and also result in the scarcity of certain materials. We cannot predict any future trends in the rate of inflation or volatility spill-over effects between international financial markets, or other negative economic factors or associated increases in our operating costs and how that may impact our business. To the extent we are unable to recover higher operating costs resulting from inflation or otherwise mitigate the impact of such costs on our business, our revenues and gross profit could decrease, and our financial condition and results of operations could be adversely affected. Supply chain disruptions could represent a challenge for the company which may have a material adverse effect in the Company’s operations. In order to mitigate the possible effects of supply chain disruptions, management is continuously monitoring global economic conditions and has taken actions to prevent or minimize the impact resulting from these supply chain disruptions, such as the use of multiple vendors that supply the identical parts, making minor engineering modifications to our products for ease and speed of changing components and increasing our inventory to shorten delivery times to our customers. Our efforts are intended to have no impact on our product quality, reliability or regulatory approvals.
Failure to effectively manage our expected growth could place strains on our managerial, operational and financial resources and could adversely affect our business and operating results. Our expected growth could place a strain on our managerial, operational and financial resources. Any further growth by us, or any increase in the number of our strategic relationships, will increase the strain on our managerial, operational and financial resources. This strain may inhibit our ability to achieve the rapid execution necessary to implement our business plan and could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, business prospects and operations and the value of an investment in our company.
We will need to achieve commercial acceptance of our products to continue to generate revenues and sustain profitability. We may not be able to successfully commercialize our products, and even if we do, we may not be able to do so on a timely basis. Superior competitive technologies may be introduced, or customer needs may change, which will diminish or extinguish the commercial uses for our applications. We cannot predict when significant commercial market acceptance for our products will develop, if at all, and we cannot reliably estimate the projected size of any such potential market. If the markets fail to accept our products, then we may not be able to generate revenues from the commercial application of our technologies. Our revenue growth and profitability will depend substantially on our ability to manufacture and deploy additional products required by each of our potential customers.
Changes in employment laws or regulation could harm our performance. Various federal and state labor laws govern the Company’s relationship with our employees and affect operating costs. These laws may include minimum wage requirements, overtime pay, healthcare reform and the implementation of various federal and state healthcare laws, unemployment tax rates, workers’ compensation rates, citizenship requirements, union membership and sales taxes. A number of factors could adversely affect our operating results, including additional government-imposed increases in minimum wages, overtime pay, paid leaves of absence and mandated health benefits, mandated training for employees, changing regulations from the
National Labor Relations Board and increased employee litigation including claims relating to the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Our business plan is speculative. Our present business and planned business are speculative and subject to numerous risks and uncertainties. There is no assurance that the Company will generate significant revenues or profits.
Our expenses could increase without a corresponding increase in revenues. Our operating and other expenses could increase without a corresponding increase in revenues, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial results and on your investment. Factors which could increase operating and other expenses include but are not limited to (1) increases in the rate of inflation, (2) increases in taxes and other statutory charges, (3) changes in laws, regulations or government policies which increase the costs of compliance with such laws, regulations or policies, (4) significant increases in insurance premiums, and (5) increases in borrowing costs.
Our bank accounts will not be fully insured. The Company’s regular bank accounts and the escrow account for this Offering each have federal insurance that is limited to a certain amount of coverage. It is anticipated that the account balances in each account may exceed those limits at times. In the event that any of the Company’s banks should fail, we may not be able to recover all amounts deposited in these bank accounts.
We may be unable to adequately protect our proprietary rights. Our success will depend on our ability to obtain and maintain meaningful intellectual property protection for any such Intellectual Property. The names and/or logos of Company brands (whether owned by the Company or licensed to us) may be challenged by holders of trademarks who file opposition notices, or otherwise contest trademark applications by the Company for its brands. Similarly, domains owned and used by the Company may be challenged by others who contest the ability of the Company to use the domain name or URL. Such challenges could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial results as well as your investment.
We are vulnerable to computer, website, or information system breakdown, cyber security threats and other disruptions which could negatively impact our business. Computer, website and/or information system breakdowns as well as cyber security attacks could impair the Company’s ability to service its customers leading to reduced revenue from sales and/or reputational damage, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial results as well as your investment.
Any system or service disruptions, including those caused by ongoing projects to improve our information technology systems and the delivery of services, if not anticipated and appropriately mitigated, could have a material adverse effect on our business including, among other things, an adverse effect on our ability to bill our customers for work performed on our contracts, collect the amounts that have been billed and produce accurate financial statements in a timely manner. We are also subject to system failures, including network, software or hardware failures, whether caused by us, third-party service providers, cyber security threats, natural disasters, power shortages, terrorist attacks or other events, which could cause loss of data and interruptions or delays in our business, cause us to incur remediation costs, subject us to claims and damage our reputation. In addition, the failure or disruption of our communications or utilities could cause us to interrupt or suspend our operations or otherwise adversely affect our business. We are continuously exposed to cyber-attacks and other security threats. Any electronic security breach or compromise may jeopardize security of information stored or transmitted through our information technology systems and networks. This could lead to disruptions in mission-critical systems, unauthorized release of confidential or otherwise protected information and corruption of data.
Although our board of directors has implemented policies, procedures and controls to protect against, detect and mitigate these threats, we face advanced and persistent attacks on our information systems and attempts by others to gain unauthorized access to our information technology systems are becoming more sophisticated. These attempts include covertly introducing malware to our computers and networks and impersonating authorized users, among others, and may be perpetrated by well-funded organized crime or state sponsored efforts. We seek to detect and investigate all security incidents and to prevent their occurrence or recurrence. We continue to invest in and improve our threat protection, detection and mitigation policies, procedures, and controls. Our board of directors is aware of major common cyber threats, which are, i) email vulnerabilities; remedied by education, training, and sensible email management, ii) supply chain compromise exploitation by “trusted” suppliers; remedied by vigilance from the Company’s information technology group reverification of credentials at high frequency, iii) account compromises; remedied by multi-step authentication, iv) ransomware; remedied by having a continually strong defense and a solid recovery plan. However, because of the evolving nature and sophistication of these security threats, which can be difficult to detect, there can be no assurance that our policies, procedures and controls have or will detect or prevent any of these threats and we cannot predict the full impact of any such past or future incident. Although we work cooperatively with our customers and other business partners to seek to minimize the impacts of cyber and other security threats, we must rely on the safeguards put in place by those entities. Any remedial costs or other liabilities related to cyber or other security threats may not be fully insured or indemnified by other means. Occurrence of any of these security threats could expose us to claims, contract terminations and damages and could adversely affect our reputation, business operations and financial results.
Changes in the economy could have a detrimental impact on the Company. Changes in the general economic climate could have a detrimental impact on consumer expenditure and therefore on the Company’s revenue. It is possible that recessionary pressures and other economic factors (such as declining incomes, future potential rising interest rates, higher unemployment and tax increases) may adversely affect customers’ confidence and willingness to spend. Any such events or occurrences could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial results and on your investment.
Our operating plan relies in large part upon assumptions and analyses developed by the Company. If these assumptions or analyses prove to be incorrect, the Company’s actual operating results may be materially different from our forecasted results. Whether actual operating results and business developments will be consistent with the Company’s expectations and assumptions as reflected in its forecast depends on a number of factors, many of which are outside the Company’s control, including, but not limited to:
- whether the Company can obtain sufficient capital to sustain and grow its business;
- our ability to manage the Company’s growth;
- whether the Company can manage relationships with key vendors and advertisers;
- demand for the Company’s products and services;
- the timing and costs of new and existing marketing and promotional efforts and/or competition;
- the Company’s ability to retain existing key management, to integrate recent hires and to attract, retain and motivate qualified personnel;
- the overall strength and stability of domestic and international economies
- consumer spending habits.
Unfavorable changes in any of these or other factors, most of which are beyond the Company’s control, could materially and adversely affect its business, results of operations and financial condition.
Our operations may not be profitable. The Company may not be able to generate significant revenues in the future. In addition, we expect to incur substantial operating expenses in order to fund the expansion of our business. As a result, we may experience substantial negative cash flow for at least the foreseeable future and cannot predict when, or even if, the Company might become profitable.
Our business model is evolving. Our business model is unproven and is likely to continue to evolve. Accordingly, our initial business model may not be successful and may need to be changed. Our ability to generate significant revenues will depend, in large part, on our ability to successfully market our products to potential users who may not be convinced of the need for our products and services or who may be reluctant to rely upon third parties to develop and provide these products. We intend to continue to develop our business model as the Company’s market continues to evolve.
The Company needs to increase brand awareness. Due to a variety of factors, our opportunity to achieve and maintain a significant market share may be limited. Developing and maintaining awareness of the Company’s brand name, among other factors, is critical. Further, the importance of brand recognition will increase as competition in the Company’s market increases. Successfully promoting and positioning our brand, products and services will depend largely on the effectiveness of our marketing efforts. Therefore, we may need to increase the Company’s financial commitment to create and maintain brand awareness. If we fail to successfully promote our brand name or if the Company incurs significant expenses promoting and maintaining our brand name, it will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations.
We face competition from a number of large and small companies, some of which have greater financial, research and development, production, and other resources than we do. In many cases, our competitors have longer operating histories, established ties to the market and consumers, greater brand awareness, and greater financial, technical and marketing resources. Our ability to compete depends, in part, upon a number of factors outside of our control, including the ability of our competitors to develop alternatives that are superior. If we fail to successfully compete in the relevant markets, or if we incur significant expenses in order to compete, it could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations.
Our employees may engage in misconduct or improper activities. The Company, like any business, is exposed to the risk of employee fraud or other misconduct. Misconduct by employees could include intentional failures to comply with laws or regulations, provide accurate information to regulators, comply with applicable standards, report financial information or data accurately or disclose unauthorized activities to the Company. In particular, sales, marketing and business arrangements are subject to extensive laws and regulations intended to prevent fraud, misconduct, kickbacks, self-dealing and other abusive practices. These laws and regulations may restrict or prohibit a wide range of pricing, discounting, marketing and promotion, sales commission, customer incentive programs and other business arrangements. Employee misconduct could also involve improper or illegal activities which could result in regulatory sanctions and serious harm to our reputation.
Limitation on director liability. The Company may provide for the indemnification of directors to the fullest extent permitted by law and, to the extent permitted by such law, eliminate or limit the personal liability of directors to the Company and its shareholders for monetary damages for certain breaches of fiduciary duty. Such indemnification may be available for liabilities arising in connection with this offering.
Our robot hardware business may not achieve wide market acceptance. Without significant funds with which to market our robot hardware products, we may not succeed in attracting sufficient customer interest and follow-on sales to generate a profit. There is no assurance that, even with adequate funds with which to market our robot hardware products, we will ever earn a profit from our operations.
We may not compete successfully with other businesses in the robot hardware industry. We compete, directly or indirectly, with local, national, and international robot hardware developers, manufacturers, distributors, and sellers. We may not be successful in competing against our competitors, many of whom have longer operating histories, significantly greater financial stability and better access to capital markets and credit than we do. We also expect to face numerous new competitors offering goods and related services comparable to those we plan to offer. There is no assurance that we will be able to compete successfully against our competition.
We may be subject to liability if our equipment does not perform as expected. We may be exposed to liability in the event our equipment does not perform as expected. We intend to enter into contracts with customers, which will grant certain rights with respect to the condition and use of our products. Certain contractual and legal claims could arise in the event the equipment does not perform as expected and in the event of personal injury, death or property damage as a result of the use of our equipment. There can be no assurance that particular risks are insured or, if insured, will continue to be insurable on an economical basis or that current levels of coverage will continue to be available. We may be liable for any defects in the equipment or its products and services and uninsured or underinsured personal injury, death or property damage claims.
Our business depends on our ability to manufacture various pieces of equipment, many of which are quite large. Any disruption in our manufacturing ability will adversely affect our business and operations. Our business involves manufacturing and plant operation risks of delay that may be outside of our control. Production or services may be delayed or prevented by factors such as adverse weather, strikes, energy shortages, shortages or increased costs of materials, inflation, environmental conditions, legal matters and other unknown contingencies. Our business also requires certain manufacturing apparatus to manufacture the equipment. If the manufacturing apparatus were to suffer major damage or are destroyed by fire, abnormal wear, flooding, incorrect operation or otherwise, we may be unable to replace or repair such apparatus in a timely manner or at a reasonable cost, which would impact our ability to stay in production or service. Any significant downtime of the equipment manufacturing could impair our ability to produce for or serve customers and materially and adversely affect our results of operations. In addition, changes in the equipment plans and specifications, delays due to compliance with governmental requirements or impositions of fees or other delays could increase production costs beyond those budgeted for the business. If any cost overruns exceed the funds budgeted for operations, the business would be negatively impacted.
Any accident at our manufacturing facilities could subject us to substantial liability. The manufacturing and operation of the equipment involves hazards and risks which could disrupt operations, decrease production and increase costs. The occurrence of a significant accident or other event that is not fully insured could adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
If critical components become unavailable or our suppliers delay their production of our key components, our business will be negatively impacted. Our ability to get key components to build our equipment is crucial to our ability to manufacture our products. These components are supplied by certain third-party manufacturers, and we may be unable to acquire necessary amounts of key components at competitive prices.
If we are successful in our growth, outsourcing the production of certain parts and components would be one way to reduce manufacturing costs. We plan to select these particular manufacturers based on their ability to consistently produce these products according to our requirements in an effort to obtain the best quality product at the most cost-effective price. However, the loss of all or any one of these suppliers or delays in obtaining shipments would have an adverse effect on our operations until an alternative supplier could be found, if one may be located at all. If we get to that stage of growth, such loss of manufacturers could cause us to breach any contracts we have in place at that time and would likely cause us to lose sales. Supply chain disruptions could represent a challenge for the company which may have a material adverse
effect in the Company’s operations. In order to mitigate the possible effects of supply chain disruptions, the Company is continuously monitoring global economic conditions and has taken actions to prevent or minimize the impact resulting from these supply chain disruptions, such as the use of multiple vendors that supply the identical parts, making minor engineering modifications to our products for ease and speed of changing components and increasing our inventory to shorten delivery times to our customers. Our efforts will have no impact on our product quality, reliability or regulatory approvals.
Any shortage of skilled labor would have a detrimental impact on our ability to provide our products and services. The manufacturing and operating of the equipment require skilled laborers. In the event there is a shortage of labor, including skilled labor, it could have an adverse impact on our productivity and costs and our ability to expand production in the event there is an increase in demand for our product or services.
We rely on third party contractors for some of our operations. If we are unable to find quality contractors, it would severely impact our business. We outsource certain aspects of our business to third party contractors. We are subject to the risks associated with such contractors’ ability to successfully provide the necessary services to meet the needs of our business. If the contractors are unable to adequately provide the contracted services, and we are unable to find alternative service providers in a timely manner, our ability to operate the business may be disrupted, which may adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
Union activities could adversely impact our business. While none of our employees are currently members of unions, we may become adversely effected by union activities. We are not subject to any collective bargaining or union agreement; however, it is possible that future employees may join or seek recognition to form a labor union or may be required to become a labor agreement signatory. If some or all of our employees become unionized, it could adversely affect productivity, increase labor costs and increase the risk of work stoppages. If a work stoppage were to occur, it could interfere with the business operations and have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
