NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 (Unaudited)

  

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of AB International Group Corp. (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X of the Securities Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The consolidated balance sheet as of August 31, 2023 derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date, but does not include all the information and footnotes required by GAAP. These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended August 31, 2023.

 

The unaudited consolidated financial statements as of and for the three months ended November 30, 2023 and 2022, in the opinion of management, include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows. The results of operations for the three months ended November 30, 2023 and 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any other interim period or for the entire year. 

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The financial statements have been prepared on a consolidated basis, with the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary App Board Limited and AB Cinemas NY, Inc. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date the financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

Accounts receivable

 

Accounts receivable is presented at invoiced amount net of an allowance for doubtful accounts. The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts for estimated losses. The Company reviews its accounts receivable on a periodic basis and makes general and specific allowances when there is doubt as to the collectability of individual balances. In evaluating the collectability of individual receivable balances, the Company considers many factors, including the age of the balance, customer’s payment history, its current credit-worthiness and current economic trends. Accounts are written off after efforts at collection prove unsuccessful. No allowance was recorded for the three months ended November 30, 2023 and 2022.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Foreign Currency Transactions

 

The financial risk arises from the fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and the degrees of volatility in these rates. Currently the Company does not use derivative instruments to reduce its exposure to foreign currency risk. Gains and losses from translation of foreign currency into U.S. dollars are included in current results of operations.

 

Prepayments

 

Prepayments primarily consist of payments made to acquire the copyrights and distribution rights of movies, TV shows and music, etc. Prepayments are classified as either current or non-current based on the nature and the terms of the respective agreements. These prepayments are unsecured and are reviewed periodically to determine whether their carrying value has become impaired. The allowance is also based on management’s best estimate of specific losses on individual exposures, as well as a provision on historical trends of collections and utilizations. Actual amounts received or utilized may differ from management’s estimate of credit worthiness and the economic environment. Prepayments are written off against the allowances only after exhaustive collection efforts. No allowance was recorded for the three months ended November 30, 2023 and 2022.

 

Property and Equipment, net

 

Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Leasehold improvement is related to the enhancements paid by the Company to leased offices. Leasehold improvement represents capital expenditures for direct costs of renovation or acquisition and design fees incurred. The amortization of leasehold improvements commences once the renovation is completed and ready for the Company’s intended use.

 

The straight-line depreciation method is used to compute depreciation over the estimated useful lives of the assets, as follows:

 

    Estimated Useful Life
Furniture   7 years
Appliances   5 years
Leasehold improvement   Lesser of useful life and lease term

 

Expenditures for maintenance and repairs, which do not materially extend the useful lives of the assets, are charged to expense as incurred. Expenditures for major renewals and betterments that substantially extend the useful life of assets are capitalized. The cost and related accumulated depreciation of assets retired or sold are removed from the respective accounts, and any gain or loss is recognized in the consolidated statements of operations in other income or expenses.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets are recorded at the lower of cost or estimated fair value and amortized as follows:

 

  Movie copyrights and broadcast rights: straight-line method over the estimated life of the asset, which has been determined by management to be 2 years
  NFT MMM platform: straight-line method over the estimated life of the asset, which has been determined by management to be 2 years

 

Amortized costs of the intangible asset are recorded as amortization expenses in the consolidated statements of operations.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Lease property under operating lease

 

The Company adopted ASU No. 2016-02—Leases (Topic 842) since June 1, 2019, using a modified retrospective transition method permitted under ASU No. 2018-11. This transition approach provides a method for recording existing leases only at the date of adoption and does not require previously reported balances to be adjusted. In addition, the Company elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard, which among other things, allowed us to carry forward the historical lease classification. Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of additional lease assets and lease liabilities on the consolidated balance sheets. The standard did not materially impact the Company’s consolidated net earnings and cash flows.

 

Impairment of Long-lived asset

 

The Company evaluates its long-lived assets or asset group, including intangible assets with indefinite and finite lives, for impairment. Intangible assets with indefinite lives that are not subject to amortization are tested for impairment at least annually or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the assets might be impaired in accordance with ASC 350. Such impairment test compares the fair values of assets with their carrying values with an impairment loss recognized when the carrying values exceed fair values. For long-lived assets and intangible assets with finite lives that are subject to depreciation and amortization are tested for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances (such as a significant adverse change to market conditions that will impact the future use of the assets) indicate that the carrying amount of an asset or a group of long-lived assets may not be recoverable. When these events occur, the Company evaluates impairment by comparing the carrying amount of the assets to future undiscounted net cash flows expected to result from the use of the assets and their eventual disposition. If the sum of the expected undiscounted cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the assets, the Company would recognize an impairment loss based on the excess of the carrying amount of the asset group over its fair value. Impairment losses are included in the general and administrative expense. There was no impairment loss during the three months ended November 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company adopted ASC Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, using the modified retrospective approach. ASC 606 establishes principles for reporting information about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from the entity’s contracts to provide goods or services to customers. The core principle requires an entity to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration that it expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for those goods or services recognized as performance obligations are satisfied.

 

To determine revenue recognition for contracts with customers, the Company performs the following five steps: (i) identify the contract with the customer, (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (iii) determine the transaction price, including variable consideration to the extent that it is probable that a significant future reversal will not occur, (iv) allocate the transaction price to the respective performance obligations in the contract, and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the Company satisfies the performance obligation.

 

The Company derives its revenues primarily from four sources: (1) selling copyrights of movies or TV shows; (2) licensing NFT MMM platform and providing technical service; (3) movie theater admissions and food and beverage sales; (4) embedded marketing service.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Revenue Recognition (continued)

 

Revenue from selling copyrights of movies or TV shows: 

 

The Company recognizes revenue when master copy of movie or TV show is delivered, the IP is authorized and transferred to customers. The Company’s contracts with customer are primarily on a fixed-price basis and do not contain cancelable and refund-type provisions.

 

Revenue from licensing NFT MMM platform and providing technical service fee:

 

The Company derives revenue from NFTMM platform license fees, which includes accessing the NFTMM platform and platform data on both app and website. In accordance with ASC 606, a 'right to access' license is recognized over the license period. Initial technical service fee comprises of installation, implementation and necessary training required by the customer. These services fees are recognized as the services are delivered at a point in time.

 

Revenue from movie theater admissions and food and beverage sales:

The Company recognizes admissions and food and beverage revenues based on a gross transaction price which are recorded at a point in time when a film is exhibited to a customer and when a customer takes possession of food and beverage offerings. The Company defers 100% of the revenue associated with the sales of gift cards and exchange tickets until such time as the items are redeemed or estimated income from non-redemption is recorded.

 

Revenue from embedded marketing service:

 

The Company derives revenue from providing the services of embedded marketing through adding advertisement into movies and TV series. The Company recognizes revenue when the advertisement is added to the movies and TV series.

 

Contract Assets and Liabilities

 

Payment terms are established on the Company’s pre-established credit requirements based upon an evaluation of customers’ credit quality. Contact assets are recognized for in related accounts receivable. Contract liabilities are recognized for contracts where payment has been received in advance of delivery. The contract liability balance can vary significantly depending on the timing of when an order is placed and when shipment or delivery occurs.

 

As of November 30, 2023 and August 31, 2023, other than accounts receivable, the Company had no material contract assets, contract liabilities or deferred contract costs recorded on its consolidated balance sheets.

Disaggregation of revenue

 

The Company disaggregates its revenue from contracts by revenue streams, as the Company believes it best depicts how the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of the revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors.

 

The following table presents sales by revenue streams for the three months ended November 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively:

 

   November 30, 2023  November 30, 2022
Copyrights sales  $531,800   $   
Embedded marketing service   125,488       
NFT licenses   57,000    180,000 
Theatre admissions   57,824    36,162 
Food and beverage sales   29,635    20,650 
Total revenue  $801,747   $236,812 

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements” (ASC 820) and ASC 825, “Financial Instruments” (ASC 825), requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. It establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. It prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1 – Level 1 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2 – Level 2 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated by, observable market data.

 

Level 3 – Level 3 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities. 

 

ASC 820 describes three main approaches to measuring the fair value of assets and liabilities: (1) market approach; (2) income approach; and (3) cost approach. The market approach uses prices and other relevant information generated from market transactions involving identical or comparable assets or liabilities. The income approach uses valuation techniques to convert future amounts to a single present value amount. The measurement is based on the value indicated by current market expectations about those future amounts. The cost approach is based on the amount that would currently be required to replace an asset. 

 

The carrying values of cash, accounts payable, and accrued liabilities approximate fair value due to their short-term nature. The fair values of warrant liabilities and derivative liabilities embedded in convertible notes are determined by level 3 inputs. 

  

No liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of November 30, 2023 and August 31, 2023.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Basic and Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

The Company computes earnings per share (“EPS”) in accordance with ASC 260, “Earnings per Share” (“ASC 260”). ASC 260 requires companies with complex capital structures to present basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is measured as net income (loss) divided by the weighted average common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS presents the dilutive effect on a per share basis of potential common shares (e.g., convertible securities, options and warrants) as if they had been converted at the beginning of the periods presented, or issuance date, if later. Potential common shares that have an anti-dilutive effect (i.e., those that increase income per share or decrease loss per share) are excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS. As of November 30, 2023, the total number of warrants outstanding was 50,000,000 (See Note 10). No warrants were included in the diluted earnings per share as they would be anti-dilutive. The Series A and B preferred stocks were included in the diluted earnings per share as they would be dilutive.

 

Reclassification

 

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.

 

Warrants

 

Warrants are classified as equity and the proceeds from issuing warrants in conjunction with convertible notes are allocated based on the relative fair values of the base instrument of convertible notes and the warrants by following the guidance of ASC 470-20-25-2.

 

Proceeds from the sale of a debt instrument with stock purchase warrants (detachable call options) shall be allocated to the two elements based on the relative fair values of the debt instrument without the warrants and of the warrants themselves at time of issuance. The portion of the proceeds so allocated to the warrants shall be accounted for as paid-in capital. The remainder of the proceeds shall be allocated to the debt instrument portion of the transaction. This usually results in a discount (or, occasionally, a reduced premium), which shall be accounted for as interest expense under Topic 835 Interest.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for current income taxes in accordance with the laws of the relevant tax authorities. Income taxes are accounted for using the asset and liability approach. Under this approach, income tax expense is recognized for the amount of taxes payable or refundable for the current year. Deferred income taxes assets and liabilities are recognized when temporary differences exist between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their reported amounts in the consolidated financial statements. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the consolidated statement of operations in the period including the enactment date. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

 

The Company records uncertain tax positions in accordance with ASC 740 on the basis of a two-step process whereby (1) the Company determines whether it is more likely than not that the tax positions will be sustained on the basis of the technical merits of the position and (2) for those tax positions that meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold, the Company recognizes the largest amount of tax benefit that is more than 50 percent likely to be realized upon ultimate settlement with the related tax authority.

Share-Based Compensation

 

The Company follows the provisions of ASC 718, “Compensation - Stock Compensation,” which establishes the accounting for employee share-based awards. For employee share-based awards, share-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and is recognized as expense with graded vesting on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for the entire award.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements 

 

In October 2021, the FASB issued ASU No. 2021-08, “‘Business Combinations (Topic 805): Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers” (“ASU 2021-08”). This ASU requires entities to apply Topic 606 to recognize and measure contract assets and contract liabilities in a business combination. The amendments improve comparability after the business combination by providing consistent recognition and measurement guidance for revenue contracts with customers acquired in a business combination and revenue contracts with customers not acquired in a business combination. The amendments are effective for the Company beginning after December 15, 2023, and are applied prospectively to business combinations that occur after the effective date. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2021-04 to have a material effect on the consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2022, the FASB issued ASU No. 2022-03, "Fair Value Measurements (Topic 820): Fair Value Measurement of Equity Securities Subject to Contractual Sale Restrictions," which clarifies and amends the guidance of measuring the fair value of equity securities subject to contractual restrictions that prohibit the sale of the equity securities. The guidance will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023 and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company does not expect the adoption to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

 

The Company does not believe other recently issued but not yet effective accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets, statements of operations and statements of cash flows. 

 

NOTE 3 – GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future.

 

As of November 30, 2023, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $12.3 million and a working capital deficit of approximately $0.8 million. For the three months ended November 30, 2023, the net cash used in operating activities was approximately $36,000. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from its stockholders or external financing. Management believes the existing stockholders will provide the additional cash to meet the Company’s obligations as they become due. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be successful in securing sufficient funds to sustain the operations.

 

These factors, among others, raise the substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effect on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the outcome of these uncertainties. Management believes that the actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding and implement its strategic plan provides the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.

Management considers the scheduled reversals of future deferred tax assets, projected future taxable income, and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. As a result, management determined it was more likely than not the deferred tax assets would not be realized as of November 30, 2023 and August 31, 2023.

Overview

 

The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on July 29, 2013. The Company's fiscal year end is August 31.

 

We are an intellectual property (IP) and movie investment and licensing firm, focused on acquisitions and development of various intellectual property, including the acquisition and distribution of movies. On June 1, 2017 we have a patent license to a video synthesis and release system for mobile communications equipment, in which the technology is the subject of a utility model patent in the People's Republic of China. Our License to the Technology generates revenue through sub-license monthly fees from a smartphone app on Android devices. This smartphone app was already existing and licensed at the time we acquired the Technology of video synthesis. In January, 2021, our sublicensing agreement with Licensee to generate revenues was terminated. As such, there has been no revenues generated from sub-licensing the Technology since the end of December, 2020. On February 2019, we launched a business application (Ai Bian Quan Qiu) through smartphones and official social media accounts utilizing Artificial Intelligence. It is a matching platform for performers, advertiser merchants, and owners for more efficient services. We previously generated revenues through an agency service fee from each matched performance. Due to the quarantine and continuous control imposed by the state and local governments in areas affected by COVID-19, merchant advertising events have been suspended for 7 months. The Company decided to suspend the Ai Bian Quan Qiu platform, which, at the time, created an adverse impact on the business and financial condition and hampered its ability to generate revenue and access sources of liquidity on reasonable terms. As a result, we decide to focus mainly the IP transactions and online video streaming.

 

On April 22, 2020, the Company announced the first phase development of its video streaming service. The online service will be marketed and distributed in the world under the brand name ABQQ.tv. The Company's professional team are sourcing such dramas and films to provide video streaming service on the ABQQ.tv. The video streaming website www.ABQQ.tv was officially launched on December 29, 2020. As of November 30, 2023, the Company acquired 73 movie copyrights and broadcast rights and 75 episodes of TV drama series. The Company will continue marketing and promoting the ABQQ.tv website through Google Ads and acquire additional broadcast rights for movies and TV series, and plan to charge subscription fees once the Company has obtained at least 200 broadcast rights of movie and TV series.

On October 21, 2021, the Company entered into a Lease Agreement (the “Lease”) with Martabano Realty Corp. (the “Landlord”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to lease approximately 8,375 square feet of in what is known as the Mt. Kisco Theatre at 144 Main Street, Mount Kisco, New York. The term of the Lease is five years plus free rent period. Commencing in month four, the Company's monthly base rent obligation will be approximately $6,979, which amount will increase in year three to $13,260, year four at $13,658 and the final year at $14,067 in accordance with the terms of the Lease. The Lease contains customary provisions for real property leases of this type, including provisions allowing the Landlord to terminate the Lease upon a default by the Company.

 

The space was formerly used as a theatre with a total of 5 screens and 466 sets for screening films. The former theatre opened on December 21, 1962 with Hayley Millsin “In Search of the Castaways.” It was a replacement for the town’s other movie theatre that burned down. It was later twinned and further divided into 5 screens. It was operated for years by Lesser Theaters, then bought by Clearview Cinemas. In June, 2013 it was taken over by Bow-Tie Cinemas when they took most Clearview locations. It lasted until March, 2020 when it was closed by the Covid-19 pandemic. It was announced in September 2020 that the closure would be permanent.

 

On May 5, 2022, the Company incorporated AB Cinemas NY, Inc. in New York, NY, for the purpose of operating Mt. Kisco Theatre located in Mount Kisco, NY. The theatre has started operations in October 2022. After a rough two years for movie theatres due to the pandemic, movie theaters are starting to show signs of life again. The Company is intending to shift the business strategy from online only to the combination of online and offline business. The Company expects to generate considerable revenue from its movie theater business line in the following years.

 

On April 27, 2022, the Company purchased a unique Non-Fungible Token (“NFT”) movie and music marketplace, named as the NFT MMM from Stareastnet Portal Limited, an unrelated party, which including an APP “NFTMMM” on Google Play, and full right to the website: stareastnet.io. NFTs are digital assets with a unique identifier that is stored on a blockchain, and NFTs are tradable rights of digital assets (pictures, music, films, and virtual creations) where ownership is recorded in blockchain smart contracts. On August 6, 2022, the Company licensed NFT MMM platform to a third party to allow the access of NFTMM platform and platform data on both app and website for one year starting from August 20, 2022 to August 19, 2023 for a monthly license fee of $60,000. Pursuant to the agreement, the Company also charged one time implementation service and consulting fee of $100,000. Subsequent to the license renewal on November 1, 2023, the Company would continue licensing the NFT MM platform to the same third party from November 1, 2023 until October 31, 2025 for a monthly license fee of $57,000. The Company retained the ownership and copyright of the NFT MMM platform, including the APP “NFT MMM” on Google Play, and the website: stareastnet.io.

 

On May 31, 2023, the Company entered into an agreement with Capitalive Holdings Limited to sell the offline broadcast rights of total 59 movies for a price of $250,000. The granted broadcast rights are globally exclusive, with the exception of Mainland China.  

 

On September 10, 2023, the Company entered into an agreement with All In One Media Ltd to acquire the copyrights for 4 movies at a price of $104,714. These copyrights allow the Company to transfer these movies to other parties outside the mainland China. On November 27, 2023, the Company further acquired mainland China copyrights of these 4 movies from All In One Media Ltd. at a price of $378,513.

 

On September 30, 2023, the Company entered into another agreement with All In One Media Ltd to acquire the copy rights and broadcast rights for 2 movies for a price of $212,562. These copyrights allow the Company to broadcast these movies globally.

 

In November 2023, the Company entered into an agreement with Anyone Pictures Limited to sell the Mainland China copyrights of 1 movie for a price of $180,000 and the offline broadcast rights of another movie for a price of $211,800. The granted broadcast rights are globally exclusive, with the exception of Mainland China.

 

On November 21, 2023, the Company entered into an agreement with Capitalive Holdings Limited to sell offline broadcast rights of 1 movie for a price of $140,000. The granted broadcast rights are globally exclusive, with the exception of Mainland China.

COVID-19

 

The full extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, operations and financial results will depend on numerous evolving factors that we may not be able to accurately predict at the present time. In an effort to contain COVID-19 or slow its spread, governments around the world have enacted various measures, including orders to close all businesses not deemed “essential,” isolate residents to their homes or places of residence, and practice social distancing when engaging in essential activities. We anticipate that these actions and the global health crisis caused by COVID-19 will negatively impact business activity across the globe. The movie industry in general has changed dramatically as a result of the pandemic restrictions. While movie theaters struggle to stay alive, online streaming programming has increased. We have endeavored to stay with the trend for streaming services to remain competitive. We have experienced the negative impact in our results of operations and in our financial condition for the year ended August, 2020, especially with respect to the movie distribution end of our business. These impacts concern delays in delivering our movies and IP because of health restrictions imposed on certain public events that concern our business, including, among other things, theaters, indoor and outdoor performances, filming restrictions, music festivals, concerts and other such events, Some of these restrictions include pandemic government mandated shutdowns and others restrictions on capacity gathered at these events, with some jurisdictions imposing fines or revocation of business licensing, and other restrictions. As a result of these factors, our revenue was reduced from March to May of 2020. With immediate closures, the resultant industry and business specific delays have negatively affected our company. 

 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, movie theatres have been subject to various governmental orders requiring theatres to take or refrain from certain activities including, but not limited to, suspending operations, reduction in seating capacities, enforcement of social distancing, establishment of enhanced cleaning protocols, restrictions on food and beverage sales, tracking the identity of guests, employee protection protocols, and limitation on operating hours. Although the orders have been modified frequently, we believe our theatre has maintained material compliance with such orders. We currently cannot predict when or if COVID-19 related governmental orders will be fully terminated and whether similar orders will be utilized more frequently during future public health outbreaks.

 

Specific to our company operations, during the pandemic period, we have enacted precautionary measures to protect the health and safety of our employees and partners. These measures include closing our office, having employees work from home, and eliminating all travel. While having employees work from home may have a negative impact on efficiency and may result in negligible increases in costs, it does have an impact on our ability to execute on our agreements to deliver our core products.

 

We will continue to actively monitor the situation and may take further actions that alter our business operations as may be required by federal, state, local or foreign authorities, or that we determine are in the best interests of our employees, customers, partners and stockholders. Itis not clear what the potential effects any such alterations or modifications may have on our business, including the effects on our customers, partners, or vendors, or on our financial results.

 

Results of Operations

 

Revenues 

 

Our total revenue reported for the three months ended November 30, 2023 and 2022 was $801,747 and $236,812, respectively.

 

The revenue for the three months ended November 30, 2023, was mainly attributable to the license fee received in connection with the licensing of our NFT MMM platform, movie copyrights sales to two third parties, fees charged for embedded marketing service as well as the revenue generated from movie tickets and food and beverage sales from our newly operated movie theatre. On the other hand, for the three months ended November 30, 2022, the Company had the same sources of revenue as the current period, except the movie copyrights sales and the fees charged for embedded marketing service. The increase in revenue was mainly due to the increase in sales of copyrights and broadcast rights during the three months ended November 30, 2023 as compared to the three months ended November 30, 2022.

 

 6 

 

We have started the operation of our movie theatre since October 2022. We expect to have continued growth in our cinema segment with the recovery of movie industry from the impact of the pandemic. For the three months ended November 30, 2023, we generated total revenue of $87,459, including $57,824 from ticket sales, and $29,635 from food and beverage sales. For the three months ended November 30, 2022, we generated total revenue of $56,812, including $36,162 from ticket sales, and $20,650 from food and beverage sales.

 

We anticipate an increase in revenue in the future by selling movie and TV drama copyrights and broadcast rights, achieving enough customers to start subscriptions for ABQQ.tv and generating movie tickets and related revenues from our Mt. Kisco movie theatre in New York. We also hope to generate more license revenue from our NFT MMM platform.

 

Operating Costs and Expenses 

 

Operating costs and expenses were $829,905 for the three months ended November 30, 2023, as compared to $1,440,916 for the three months ended November 30, 2022. Our operating costs and expenses for the three months ended November 30, 2023 consisted of theatre operating costs of $41,355, amortization expenses of $511,809, general and administrative expenses of $261,692 and related party salary and wages of $15,049. In contrast, our operating costs and expenses for the three months ended November 30, 2022 consisted of theatre operating costs of $22,404, amortization expenses of $923,499, general and administrative expenses of $424,513 and related party salary and wages of $70,500.

 

We experienced an increase in theatre operating costs for the three months ended November 30, 2023 as compared to the three months ended November 30, 2022, mainly due to the commencement of our move theatre operation since October 2022. The theatre operating costs for the three months ended November 30, 2023 encompass an additional month of operating costs in contrast to the corresponding period in 2022.

 

We experienced a decrease in amortization expenses for the three months ended November 30, 2023 as compared to the corresponding period in 2022, mainly due to more fully amortized intangible assets for the three months ended November 30, 2023.

 

We experienced a decrease in general and administrative expenses for the three months ended 2023 as compared to the corresponding period in 2022, mainly as a result of decreased non-related party salaries and contractors, professional fees, office expenses and repair and maintenance expenses for the three months ended 2023 in contrast to the corresponding period in 2022.

 

We experienced a decrease in related party salary and wages for the three months ended 2023 as compared to corresponding period in 2022, mainly due to the resignation of the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Investment Officer as well as the opt out of salary by the Chief Executive Officer effective since October 2023. During the three months ended November 30, 2023, the Company incurred total compensation of $15,049 for the Chief Executive Officer. During the three months ended November 30, 2022, the Company incurred total compensation of $51,000 for Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. The Company also incurred total compensation of $nil and $19,500, respectively, for Chief Investment Officer during the three months ended November 30, 2023 and 2022.

 

We anticipate our operating expenses will increase as we undertake our plan of operations, including the streamline of costs associated with marketing, personnel, and other general and administrative expenses, along with increased professional fees associated with SEC and COVID compliance as our business grows more complex and more expensive to maintain. On the COVID front, we expect that restrictions will ease moving forward, but there may still be setbacks as variants to the virus emerge and governments take lockdown measures in response. These and other costs for COVID expenditures may increase our operational costs in fiscal 2024 at various levels of operation.

 

Other Income

 

We had other income of $71,758 for the three months ended November 30, 2023, as compared with other income of $79 for the corresponding period in 2022. Our other income for the three months ended November 30, 2023 was the net amount of the other income generated from the sales of software in progress, bank interest income, and the interest expense – related party. Our other expenses for the corresponding period in 2022 was the bank interest income.

Net Income/Net Loss

 

We incurred a net income in the amount of $43,600 for the three months ended November 30, 2023, as compared with a net loss of $1,204,025 for corresponding period in 2022. 

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of November 30, 2023, we had $318,087 in current assets consisting of cash and accounts receivable. Our total current liabilities as of November 30, 2023 were $1,115,714. As a result, we have a working capital deficit of $797,627 as of November 30, 2023 as compared with $1,005,847 as of August 31, 2023.

 

Operating activities used $35,990 in cash for the three months ended November 30, 2023, as compared with $222,142 used in cash for the three months ended November 30, 2022.

 

Our negative operating cash flow for the three months ended November 30, 2023 was mainly the result of cash used in the purchase of movie broadcast right and copyright, offset by our net income combined with the amortization of intangible assets, and the increase in accounts payable.

 

Our negative operating cashflow for the three months ended November 30, 2022 was mainly the result of our net loss for the quarter combined with operating changes in receivables, offset by the amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation paid to consultants.

 

Investing activities was $Nil for the three months ended November 30, 2023 and 2022.

 

Financing activities provided $179,981 for the three months ended November 30, 2023, as compared with $158,159 provided by financing activities for the three months ended November 30, 2022. Our positive financing cash flow for the three months ended November 30, 2023 was due to the loans from related party. Our positive financing cash flow for the three months ended November 30, 2022 was mainly the result of proceeds from issuance of our common shares, preferred shares, and the loans from related parties.  

 

Going Concern

 

Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. As of November 30, 2023, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $12.3 million and a working capital deficit of approximately $0.8 million. For the three months ended November 30, 2023, the net cash used in operating activities was approximately $36,000.

 

The future operations of the Company depend on its ability to realize forecasted revenues, achieve profitable operations, and depend on whether or not the Company could obtain the continued financial support from its stockholders or external financing. Management believes the existing stockholders will continue to provide the additional cash to meet the Company’s obligations as they become due. The Company also intends to fund operations through cash flow generated from the operations, including the expected ticket sales from Mt. Kisco movie theatre, equity financing, debt borrowings, and additional equity financing from outside investors, to ensure sufficient working capital. However, no assurance can be given that additional financing, if required, would be available on favorable terms or at all. If we are not able to secure additional funding, the implementation of our business plan will be impaired.

 

These factors, among others, raise the substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effect on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the outcome of these uncertainties. Management believes that the actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding and implement its strategic plan provides the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of November 30, 2023, there were no off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

In December 2001, the SEC requested that all registrants list their most “critical accounting polices” in the Management Discussion and Analysis. The SEC indicated that a “critical accounting policy” is one which is both important to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and results, and requires management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain.

 

Our critical accounting policies are set forth in Note 2 to the financial statements.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

We do not expect the adoption of recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a significant impact on our results of operations, financial position or cash flow.

 

Item 3.  Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

We are a smaller reporting company and are not required to provide the information under this item pursuant to Regulation S-K.

  

Item 4.  Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) as of November 30, 2023. This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer. Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of November 30, 2023, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to the presence of material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting.

 

A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Management has identified the following material weaknesses which have caused management to conclude that, as of November 30, 2023, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective: (i) inadequate segregation of duties and effective risk assessment; and (ii) insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both US GAAP and SEC guidelines.

 

Remediation Plan to Address the Material Weaknesses in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our company plans to take steps to enhance and improve the design of our internal controls over financial reporting. During the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q, we have not been able to remediate the material weaknesses identified above. To remediate such weaknesses, we plan to implement the following changes during our fiscal year ending August 31, 2023: (i) appoint additional qualified personnel to address inadequate segregation of duties and ineffective risk management; and (ii) adopt sufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting. The remediation efforts set out are largely dependent upon our securing additional financing to cover the costs of implementing the changes required. If we are unsuccessful in securing such funds, remediation efforts may be adversely affected in a material manner.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the three months ended November 30, 2023, that have materially affected, or are reasonable likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Internal Controls

 

Our management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will necessarily prevent all fraud and material error.   Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the internal control. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, control may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
