In January 2019, the Company closed on a purchase of 520,410 shares of common stock of Trace Analytics, Inc., a Washington corporation (“Trace Analytics”), for an aggregate purchase price of $1,250,000, of which $750,000 was paid in cash and $500,000 was paid in shares of common stock of the Company.

Basis of presentation – Unaudited Financial Statements
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete annual financial statements. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary for a fair presentation. Interim operating results are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2020, or for any other interim period. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements as of and for the year ended March 31, 2019, which are included in the Company’s Report on Form 10-K for such year filed on July 1, 2019.
These condensed statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes the Company will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. As reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company incurred a net loss of $2,789,028 and used $817,715 of cash in operating activities during the nine months ended December 31, 2019. Further, the Company’s independent auditor in their audit report for fiscal year ended March 31, 2019 expressed substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These and other factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date the financial statements are issued. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to raise additional capital and to ultimately achieve sustainable revenues and income from operations. During the nine months ended December 31, 2019, the Company issued convertible notes for total proceeds of $791,939 in private placements with accredited investors. However, the Company will need and is currently working on obtaining additional funds to operate its business through and beyond the date of this Form 10-Q filing. There is no assurance that such funds will be available or at terms acceptable to the Company. Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, it may contain undue restrictions and covenants on its operations, in the case of debt financing or cause substantial dilution for its stockholders in the case of convertible debt and equity financing.
