This Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-QA (Amendment No. 1) amends our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2017 (the “Original Filing”), filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on January 2, 2018 (the “Original Filing Date”). The purpose of this Amendment No. 1 is to update Part II Item 1A for a change in the majority shareholder who has the ability to influence matters affecting our shareholders as well as to amend the authorized signatory page for the correct authorized signor pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
We have made no attempt in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A to modify or update the disclosures presented in the Original Report other than as noted in the previous paragraph. Except as noted above, this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A does not reflect events occurring after the filing of the Original Report. Accordingly, this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A should be read in conjunction with the Original Report, and the Companys other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) subsequent to the filing of the Original Report, including any amendments thereto.
Pursuant to Rule 12b-15 under the Exchange Act, this Amendment No. 1 also contains new certifications pursuant to Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, which are attached hereto. Because no financial statements are included in this Amendment No. 1 and this Amendment No. 1 does not contain or amend any disclosure with respect to Items 307 and 308 of Regulation S-K, paragraphs 3, 4, and 5 of the certifications have been omitted.
Unless expressly indicated or the context requires otherwise, the terms Evolution, our company, the Company, we, us, and our in this document refer to Evolution Blockchain Group, Inc. (formerly, Garmatex Holdings Ltd.), a Nevada corporation, and, where appropriate, its wholly owned subsidiary.
PART II - OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1A. Risk Factors.
An investment in our common stock involves a number of very significant risks. You should carefully consider the following risks and uncertainties in addition to other information in this report in evaluating our company before purchasing our securities. Our operating results and financial condition could be seriously harmed as a result of the occurrence of any of the following risks. You could lose all or part of your investment due to any of these risks.
Risks Related to Our Business
The sale of fabric is a new operation of ours with a limited operating history and history of business, revenue generation or production history.
We have never been engaged in the sale of fabric. There could be limited value to the current portfolio of technologies and raise significant doubt about our commercial viability. Our future operations are dependent upon many factors, including the ability to create sales from its current portfolio of technology.
Operating results may fluctuate depending on a number of factors which may cause the value of our shares to decrease significantly.
Operating results may fluctuate as a result of a number of factors, many of which will be outside of our control. As a result of these fluctuations, financial planning and forecasting may be more difficult and comparisons of operating results on a period-to-period basis may not necessarily be meaningful. Our business can be seasonal in nature, reflecting overall economic conditions as well as client budgeting and buying patterns in the textile and technical apparel industries. This may result in the fluctuation of operating results. Further, the cyclicality and seasonality of our business could become more pronounced and may cause operating results to fluctuate more widely.
Additional funds for our planned operations will be required.
We will need substantial funding for our planned operations. No assurances can be given that we will be able to raise the additional funding that will be required for such activities. To meet such funding requirements, we will be required to undertake additional equity financing, which would be dilutive to shareholders. Debt financing, if available, may also involve restrictions on financing and operating activities. There is no assurance that additional financing will be available on terms acceptable to us or at all. If we are unable to obtain additional financing as needed, we will be required to reduce the scope of our operations.
Third-party technology licenses may not continue to be available to us in the future.
We will rely on certain technology that we license from GTBC. These third-party technology licenses may not in the future be available to us on commercially reasonable terms, or at all. The loss of any of these technology licenses could result in delays in performance of work until our company identifies, licenses and integrates equivalent technology, and it may not be able to identify, license or integrate any such equivalent technology in a timely manner or at all. Any resulting delays in performance could damage our reputation, which could materially adversely affect our business, operating results or financial condition.
Others may assert intellectual property infringement claims against us.
Infringement or misappropriation claims (or claims for indemnification resulting from such claims) against us may be asserted or prosecuted, regardless of their merit, and any such assertions or prosecutions may adversely affect our business and/or operating results. Irrespective of the validity or the successful assertion of such claims, we would incur significant costs and diversion of resources relating to the defense of such claims, which could have an adverse effect on our business, operating results or both.
If any claims or actions are asserted against us, we may seek to obtain a license of a third-party’s intellectual property rights; however, under such circumstances such a license may not be available on reasonable terms or at all. Any such litigation could result in a material adverse effect on the business, prospects, and financial results of our company.
Adverse economic conditions may have an adverse effect on the business and financial results of our company.
Textiles and garments may be considered discretionary items for consumers. Factors affecting the level of consumer spending for such discretionary items include general economic conditions, particularly those in Canada and the United States, and other factors such as consumer confidence in future economic conditions, fears of recession, the availability of consumer credit, level of unemployment, tax rates and the cost of consumer credit. As global economic conditions continue to be volatile or economic uncertainty remains, trends in consumer discretionary spending also remain unpredictable. The current volatility in the United States economy in particular has resulted in an overall slowing in growth in the retail sector because of decreased consumer spending, which may remain depressed for the foreseeable future. These unfavorable economic conditions may lead consumers to delay or reduce purchase of fabric products and therefore have a material adverse effect on our financial condition.
Unpredictability of demand could negatively influence our product offerings, plans operations and strategies.
Our success depends on our ability to identify and originate product trends as well as to anticipate and react to changing consumer demands in a timely manner. All of our future products are subject to changing consumer preferences that cannot be predicted with certainty. If we are unable to introduce new products or novel technologies in a timely manner or our new products or technologies are not accepted by our customers, our competitors may introduce similar products in a timelier fashion, which could hurt our goal to be viewed as a leader in performance fabric innovation. Our new products may not receive consumer acceptance as consumer preferences could shift rapidly to different types of performance fabrics or away from these types of products altogether, and our future success depends in part on our ability to anticipate and respond to these changes. Failure to anticipate and respond in a timely manner to changing consumer preferences could lead to, among other things, lower sales and excess inventory levels. Even if we are successful in anticipating consumer preferences, our failure to effectively introduce new products that are accepted by consumers could result in a decrease in net revenue and excess inventory levels, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition.
A growing competitive market in technologically advanced textiles could affect our ability to gain market share.
The market for performance textiles is highly competitive. It includes increasing competition from established companies who are expanding their production and marketing of performance products, as well as from frequent new entrants to the market. There can be no assurance that other companies with greater financial and technological resources will not develop similar scientifically advance fabric technologies similar to our company’s or with greater perceived benefits which would affect our ability to compete successfully against existing competitors or future entrants into the market.
Raw materials required in the manufacture of products may be susceptible availability and pricing and quality fluctuations and may adversely affect our financial results.
Our business will rely on externally sourced raw materials in our manufacturing operations, and will business with a broad range of suppliers to ensure steady supplies of high-quality raw materials at competitive prices. Many of the parts or materials used in manufacturing of our textiles are anticipated to be made from oil. If the price of crude oil rises, the purchase price of such parts or materials may increase as well. Further, unanticipated contingencies among these suppliers or if parts and materials procured by these suppliers suffer from quality problems or are in short supply, we may be forced to discontinue production. Such events, if occurred, may adversely affect our financial position and results of operations.
Brand leaders are slow to adopt new technologies and the long business development cycle could delay the return on investment of resources required to develop our business.
Textile innovation for customized product development is a collaborative effort between suppliers, our company and the customer. All play a key role to ensure the functionality and performance of the products are developed to meet the customer’s specific technical textile requirements. Technological advances in textiles are slow to be adopted by large multinational companies and approvals must be had at many stages of the buying process. As a result, the extended business development cycle and delayed of return on investment may have an adverse effect our financial condition.
We have limited resources for marketing of our products and we may not be able to attract sufficient paying customers to make our business sustainable.
We have limited resources for marketing of our products. Our future sales will depend in large part on our ability to attract sufficient paying customers to make our business profitable and sustainable. Also, we may not be able to attract and retain personnel or be able to build an efficient and effective marketing force, which could negatively impact sales of our products, and reduce our revenues and profitability.
Our ability to implement our business and marketing strategy.
The implementation of our business and marketing strategy will depend on a number of factors. These include our ability to (i) find and hire reliable and sufficiently skilled third-party marketing personnel, (ii) make our products known and
establish a trusted brand to our potential end user customers, (iii) establish a significant paying customer base, (iv) obtain adequate financing on favorable terms in order to fund our business, (v) maintain appropriate procedures, policies and
systems; (vi) hire, train and retain skilled employees, and (vii) operate successfully and profitably within an environment of increasing competition. Our inability
Our operating results may prove unpredictable.
Our operating results are likely to fluctuate significantly in the future due to a variety of factors, many of which we have no control over. Factors that may cause our operating results to fluctuate significantly include: the level of commercial acceptance by the public of our products; fluctuations in the demand for our products; the amount and timing of operating costs and capital expenditures relating to the operation of and/or expansion of our business, operations, infrastructure and general economic conditions. If realized, any of these risks could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and the results of operations.
The current state of capital markets, particularly for small companies, is expected to reduce our ability to obtain the financing necessary to continue our business. If we cannot raise the funds that we need to continue acquisitions and fund future business opportunities, we will go out of business and investors will lose their entire investment in our company.
Like other smaller companies, we face difficulties in raising capital for our continued operations and to consummate a business opportunity with a viable business. We may not be able to raise money through the sale of our equity securities or through borrowing funds on terms we find acceptable.
Because James Bregani controls a large percentage of our voting stock, he has the ability to influence matters affecting our stockholders.
James Bregani, a majority shareholder, owns over 40% of our common stock and controls a majority of the votes attached to our outstanding voting securities. As a result, he has the ability to influence matters affecting our stockholders, including the election of directors, the acquisition of assets, and the issuance of securities. Because he controls a majority of votes, it would be very difficult for investors to replace our management if they disagree with the way our business is being operated. Because the influence by Mr. Bregani could result in management making decisions that are in the best interest of Mr. Bregani and not in the best interest of the investors, you may lose some or all of the value of your investment in our common stock.
Our Articles of Incorporation exculpate our officers and directors from certain liability to our company or our stockholders.
Our Articles of Incorporation contain a provision limiting the liability of our officers and directors for their acts or failures to act, except for acts involving intentional misconduct, fraud or a knowing violation of law. This limitation on liability may reduce the likelihood of derivative litigation against our officers and directors and may discourage or deter our stockholders from suing our officers and directors based upon breaches of their duties to our company.
