CAUTIONARY NOTE CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

The statements made in this Report, and in other materials that the Company has filed or may file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, in each case that are not historical facts, contain “forward-looking information” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, both as amended, which can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “anticipates,” “expects,” “projects,” “estimates,” “believes,” “seeks,” “could,” “should,” or “continue,” the negative thereof, and other variations or comparable terminology as well as any statements regarding the evaluation of strategic alternatives. These forward-looking statements are based on the current plans and expectations of management, and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected in such forward-looking statements. Among these risks and uncertainties are the competition we face; our ability to retain customers and attract new customers; our ability to establish and expand strategic alliances; governmental regulation and related actions in our international operations including changes in taxes and currency restrictions; increased market and competitive risks, risks related to the acquisition or integration of future businesses or joint ventures; our ability to obtain or maintain relevant intellectual property rights; failure to protect our trademarks and internally developed software; security breaches and other compromises of information security; our dependence on third party facilities, equipment, systems and services; system disruptions or flaws in our technology and systems; fraudulent use of our name or services; our ability to maintain data security; and our ability to obtain additional financing if required; These and other matters the Company discusses in this Report, or in the documents it incorporates by reference into this Report, may cause actual results to differ from those the Company describes. The Company assumes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

 

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING NASDAQ NOTIFICATION

 

On May 10, 2018, the Company received written notification from NASDAQ that the minimum bid price per share for its common share was below $1.00 for a period of 30 consecutive business days and that the Company did not meet the minimum bid price requirement set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550 (a)(2). The notification does not impact the Company’s listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market at this time.

 

On November 7, 2018 the Company received confirmation from NASDAQ that they have granted a further period of 180 calendar days to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s minimum bid price requirement.
To regain compliance, the Company’s common shares must have a closing bid price of at least $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days. The Company will work to regain compliance during this 180-day compliance period.

Interim Period Financial Statements

 

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the Securities and Exchange Commission’ instructions. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. The results of operations reflect interim adjustments, all of which are of a normal recurring nature and, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the results for such interim period. The results reported in these interim condensed consolidated financial statements should not be regarded as necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the entire year. Certain information and note disclosure normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and regulations. These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 2, 2018.

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Historically, the Company has incurred net losses and negative cash flows from operations. The Company has principally financed these losses from the sale of equity securities and the issuance of debt instruments.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018 the Company issued additional shares of common stock for cash in the amount of $2,070,000, of which $547,000 was raised in the three months ended September 30, 2018.

 

The Company may be required to raise additional funds through various sources, such as equity and debt financings. While the Company believes it is probable that such financings could be secured, there can be no assurance the Company will be able to secure additional sources of funds to support its operations, or if such funds are available, that such additional financing will be sufficient to meet the Company’s needs or on terms acceptable to us.

 

At September 30, 2018 the Company had cash of
$535,000. Subsequent to September 30, 2018 the Company has raised a further amount of cash totaling $825,000 and is considering raising additional funds in the region of $2.0 million the last quarter of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019 which is expected to give the Company sufficient cash resources to cover forecasted expenditure into 2020.

 

9

 

 

However, actual results could materially differ from the Company’s projections. Accordingly, the Company may be required to raise additional funds through various sources. While the Company believes it is probable that such financings could be secured, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to secure additional sources of funds to support its operations, or if such funds are available, that such additional financing will be sufficient to meet the Company’s needs or on terms acceptable to us.

 

Foreign Currency Translation

 

The reporting currency of the Company is the United States dollar. Assets and liabilities other than those denominated in U.S. dollars, primarily in Singapore, the United Kingdom and China, are translated into United States dollars at the rate of exchange at the balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated at the average rate of exchange throughout the period. Gains or losses from these translations are reported as a separate component of other comprehensive income (loss) until all or a part of the investment in the subsidiaries is sold or liquidated. The translation adjustments do not recognize the effect of income tax because the Company expects to reinvest the amounts indefinitely in operations.

 

Transaction gains and losses that arise from exchange-rate fluctuations on transactions denominated in a currency other than the functional currency are included in general and administrative expenses.

 

Accounts receivable, revenue recognition and concentrations

 

New Accounting Standard - In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“Topic 606”). Topic 606 supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in ASU Topic 605, Revenue Recognition (“Topic 605”), and requires the recognition of revenue when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the considerations to which the entity expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. ASU 2014-09 also includes Subtopic 340-40, Other Assets and Deferred Costs- Contracts with Customers, which discussed the deferral of incremental costs of obtaining a contract with a customer, including the period of amortization of such costs. The new standard was adopted by the Company in our fiscal year beginning January 1, 2018. The two permitted transition methods under the new standard are the full retrospective method, in which the new standard would be applied to each prior reporting period presented and the cumulative effect of applying the new standard would be recognized at the earliest period shown, or the modified retrospective method, in which the cumulative effect of applying the new standard would be recognized at the date of initial application. Based on our assessment, the impact of the new standard on our revenue recognition in prior periods is not significant; accordingly, while the Company would have used the modified retrospective method of adoption of the new standard, there was no cumulative effect of adoption on January 1, 2018 retained earnings.

 

Performance Obligations - A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to the customer and is the unit of account under the new revenue recognition standard. The transaction price is allocated to each distinct performance obligation and recognized as revenue when, or as, the performance obligation is satisfied. The Company’s contracts do not typically have variable consideration that needs to be considered when the contract consideration is allocated to each performance obligation.

 

Revenue Recognition – We recognize revenues from each business segment under ASC 606 as described below:

 

 
1.
Digital secure messaging revenue involves the sale of user licenses, at a fixed price per license, to the customers, which is our sole performance obligation under the existing licensing agreements. The Company recognizes the revenue from the sale of the user licenses when the valid licenses have been delivered to the customer’s server in useable form.

 

 
2.
123Wish derives income from user subscriptions, sale of merchandise, sale of tickets for experiences with social media influencers and artists, and the sale of corporate sponsorships, each of which is a separate performance obligation. User subscriptions cover a defined period of time (typically one month) and the revenue is recognized as the Company satisfies the requisite performance obligation (over the defined subscription period). Sale of merchandise and tickets are recognized when the customer has paid for the item and when the merchandise and/or ticket has been delivered to the customer. Corporate sponsorship packages are non-refundable and relate to brand association. The Company has no further service deliverable to the sponsor and the revenue is recognized when the agreement is entered into by both parties and the required marketing materials have been delivered to the corporate sponsor for their use.

 

 
3.
Love Media House derives income from recording and video services. Income is recognized when the recording and video services are performed and the final customer product is delivered. These revenues are non-refundable.
 
 
 
 
4.
Banana Whale derives income primarily through licensing arrangements with gaming customers. Under these arrangements, Banana Whale provides the customers with a license (functional IP), implementation services and ad-hoc support, which may include unspecified upgrades and enhancements. The Company has determined that these promised goods and services represent one combined performance obligation since the individual promised goods or services are not distinct in the context of the contract. The revenues earned from the arrangements are primarily based on usage-based royalties. As the Company has determined that the license is the predominant item to which the royalty relates, revenues are recognized when the related sale or usage by the customer occurs.

 

The Company does not have off-balance sheet credit exposure related to its customers. As of September 30, 2018 four customers accounted for 87% of the accounts receivable balance and as of December 31, 2017, one customer accounted for 100% of the accounts receivable balance. Three customers accounted for 46% of the revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and one customer accounted for 76% of the revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Research and Development Expenses

 

Research and development expenses include all direct costs, primarily salaries for Company personnel and outside consultants, costs related to the development of new products, significant enhancements to existing products, and the portion of costs of development of internal-use software required to be expensed. Research and development costs are charged to operations as incurred with the exception of those software development costs that may qualify for capitalization.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company continually evaluates its uncertain income tax positions and may record a liability for any unrecognized tax benefits resulting from uncertain income tax positions taken or expected to be taken in an income tax return. Estimated interest and penalties are recorded as a component of interest expense and other expense, respectively.

 

Because tax laws are complex and subject to different interpretations, significant judgment is required. As a result, the Company makes certain estimates and assumptions in: (1) calculating its income tax expense, deferred tax assets, and deferred tax liabilities; (2) determining any valuation allowance recorded against deferred tax assets; and (3) evaluating the amount of unrecognized tax benefits, as well as the interest and penalties related to such uncertain tax positions. The Company’s estimates and assumptions may differ significantly from tax benefits ultimately realized. Historically the Company has not filed income tax returns and the related required informational filings in the US. Certain informational filings if not filed contain penalties. The Company is currently addressing this issue with advisors to determine the amount, if any, of potential payments due. Given the complexity of the issue the Company is unable to quantify a range of potential loss, if any. Accordingly no liability has been recorded in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets in respect of this matter

  

11

 

 

Net Loss per Share

 

Basic net loss per share is calculated by dividing the net loss attributable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding in the period. Diluted loss per share takes into consideration common shares outstanding (computed under basic loss per share) and potentially dilutive securities. For the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, outstanding warrants are antidilutive because of net losses, and as such, their effect has not been included in the calculation of diluted net loss per share. Common shares issuable are considered outstanding as of the original approval date for purposes of earnings per share computations.

 

Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss)

 

Other comprehensive income (loss), as defined, includes net loss, foreign currency translation adjustments, and all changes in equity (net assets) during a period from non-owner sources. To date, the Company has not had any significant transactions that are required to be reported in other comprehensive income (loss), except for foreign currency translation adjustments.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the fiscal period. The Company makes estimates for, among other items, useful lives for depreciation and amortization, determination of future cash flows associated with impairment testing for long-lived assets, determination of the fair value of stock options and warrants, determining fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in business combinations, valuation allowance for deferred tax assets, allowances for doubtful accounts, and potential income tax assessments and other contingencies. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience, current conditions, and other assumptions that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results could differ from those estimates and assumptions.

 

Share-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock-based awards at fair value on date of grant and recognition of compensation over the service period for awards expected to vest. The fair value of stock options is determined using the Black-Scholes option pricing model, which includes subjective judgements about the expected life of the awards, forfeiture rates and stock price volatility.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

GAAP establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. The three levels of fair value hierarchy defined by GAAP are described below:

 
Level 1 - Quoted market prices available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date.

 
Level 2 - Pricing inputs other than quoted prices in active markets included in Level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date.

 
Level 3 - Pricing inputs that are generally observable inputs and not corroborated by market data.

 

The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. If the inputs used to measure the financial assets and liabilities fall within more than one level described above, the categorization is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement of the instrument.

The Company’s Level 3 financial liabilities consist of contingent consideration relating to the acquisition of 123Wish, LMH and Banana Whale which requires significant judgment or estimation (see Note 3).

 

Note 3. Acquisitions

 

123Wish, Inc.

 

On January 31, 2018 the Company completed the acquisition of a 51% controlling interest in 123 Wish, Inc.

Note 9. Employment Agreements

 

In connection with the acquisitions described in Note 3, the Company has entered into Employment Agreements (the “Agreements”) with three members of management of 123Wish and C-Rod. The Agreements have an initial employment period of two years and are automatically renewed annually thereafter. The Agreements entitle the members of management to a fixed base salary, along with incentive compensation that is calculated using pre-tax earnings and is payable in shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

Note 10. Legal proceedings

 

On May 30, 2018, Zhanming Wu (“Wu”), the record owner of 15,000,000 shares of common stock of One Horizon Group, Inc. (the “Company”), commenced an action in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware [Case No.2018-0387-JRS; the “Injunction Action”] against the Company and its directors and officers (collectively, the “Director Defendants”) alleging multiple breaches of contract between the Company and Wu, and seeking (i) damages; (ii) to enjoin the Company from issuing, offering, selling or granting any shares of its common stock to any person or entity, or consummate any merger, acquisition or similar transaction without the prior approval of Wu, and to prevent the Individual Defendants from undermining that right by engaging in any further transactions designed to entrench themselves as directors and officers of the Company and to dilute Wu’s stock ownership below 30% of the outstanding shares of the Company, (iii) to enforce Wu’s right to appoint four directors to the Company’s Board of Directors, (iv) to rescind the issuance of 7,383,000 shares to the former stockholders of Banana Whale Studios Pte. Ltd (“Banana Whale”) in exchange for 51% of the outstanding shares of Banana Whale (the “Banana Whale Acquisition”), (iv) to obtain a declaration that the Individual Defendants have breached their fiduciary duty of loyalty by taking actions to entrench themselves on the Company’s Board of Directors; and (v) seeking an award of attorneys’ fees and costs in connection with the litigation and such other relief as the Court deems fair and equitable.

 

On June 11, 2018, Wu commenced a second action in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware [Case No.2018-0427-JRS; the “225 Action”] under Section 225 of the Delaware General Corporation Law seeking (i) to appoint four directors to the Company’s Board of Directors, (ii) to enjoin the Company and its affiliates from issuing, offering, selling or granting any shares of the Company’s common stock to any person or entity, or consummate any merger, acquisition or similar transaction without the prior approval of Wu during the pendency of the action and (iii) seeking an award of attorneys’ fees and costs in connection with the litigation and such other relief as the Court deems fair and equitable.

 

On October 15, 2018, the parties entered into an agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) which provides for the immediate cessation of all activities in the two actions and which will result in the dismissal of the two actions upon the fulfillment by the Company of certain conditions. Among the conditions to dismissal which the Company is required to meet to obtain the complete dismissal of the actions are the issuance of 354,409 shares to Wu to reimburse a portion of the expenses incurred in connection with the actions, the nomination and election to the Company’s Board of Directors 00004000 of up to two individuals designated by Wu, the redemption of up to approximately 850,000 shares of common stock at $0.65 each, from certain investors whom Wu recommended to invest in the Company (the “Additional Investors”) should they request that the Company do so and the facilitation of the sale of shares of the Company’s common stock by Wu, including the registration of such shares for sale under the Securities Act. Based on ASC 840, which requires that conditionally redeemable securities be classified outside of permanent stockholders’ equity, $552,500 was reclassified as mezzanine equity effective October 15, 2018. Pending the re-election of Wu’s nominees to the Board of Directors at the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the Company will continue to comply with the terms of the Status Quo Order issued in July in connection with the 225 Action. The 225 Action will be dismissed and the Company will no longer be obliged to comply with the Status Quo Order upon the re-election of Wu’s nominees to the Board of Directors at the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

 

A Stipulation of Dismissal in respect of the Injunction Action will be filed and the parties will exchange releases upon the fulfillment of certain conditions, including the registration of Wu’s shares and the removal of the restrictive legend from Wu’s shares and the shares held by the Additional Investors. Notwithstanding such dismissal, should the registration of Wu’s shares lapse for any reason prior to October 1, 2019, Wu shall be entitled to enforce his rights under the side letters which were the basis of many of his claims, which letters are deemed to be a part of the Settlement Agreement as if set forth therein. If the Dismissal Stipulation has been filed in the Injunction Action and Wu’s shares have remained continuously registered until October 1, 2019, the side letters shall be deemed of no force and effect.

 

Note 11. Subsequent Events

 

On October 22, 2018, the Company entered into an Exchange Agreement pursuant to which we acquired a majority of the outstanding shares (the “Control Shares”) of Browning Productions
& Entertainment, Inc
., a Florida corporation (“Browning”), from William J. Browning, the sole stockholder of Browning. Browning produces television programs which have aired internationally as well as nationally.

 

In exchange for the controlling interest in Browning, the Company paid Mr. Browning $10,000 and issued to him 150,000 shares of common stock, and agreed to issue to him an additional 150,000 shares of common stock following completion of the audit of Browning’s financial statements, plus an additional number of shares of common stock determined by dividing two and a half times the net after tax earnings of Browning during the twelve month period ending December 31, 2019 by the average of the closing price of our common stock during the ten consecutive trading days immediately preceding the end of 2019. To the extent the number of shares which the Company is obligated to issue to Mr. Browning exceeds 13,553,506 shares, representing 19.99% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock immediately prior to the acquisition (the “Excess Shares”), instead of issuing the Excess Shares to Mr. Browning the Company will pay him an amount in cash for the Excess Shares. The Company had previously paid Mr. Browning $10,000 and issued 35,000 shares of common stock to him upon execution of a non-binding letter of intent for the acquisition of Browning on May 10, 2018.

 

The Company has agreed to register for resale the initial 150,000 shares issued to Mr. Browning.

 

The Company has a right of first refusal to purchase the remaining shares of Browning.

 

In the event the Company’s common stock is delisted from NASDAQ, Mr. Browning has the right to request that we return to him the Control Shares, provided that he has not disposed of one-half of the shares issued and issuable to him in connection with the acquisition.

 

The Company also has agreed to provide Browning with a working capital loan in an initial amount of $150,000, which is to be repaid out of the post-closing net profit of Browning.

 

On October 9, 2018, the Company acquired a direct eighty percent ownership interest in the software, source code and other intellectual property underpinning the 123Wish experience marketplace platform operated by its subsidiary, 123Wish. In exchange for this ownership the Company issued 3,000,000 shares of its common stock and lent an additional $100,000 in working capital to 123Wish. 

 

In October and November 2018 the Company issued an aggregate of 4,550,000 shares of its common stock to consultants for services provided.

 

On November 15, 2018, the Company issued and sold 9,500,000 shares of its common stock to two accredited investors, for a purchase price of $1,425,000.

Revenue: Our revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was split between our operations as follows:

 

 
Secure messaging - $50,000 for the sale of user licenses

 

 
123Wish - $3,000 for subscriptions and sponsorships

 

 
LMH - $144,000 for music and video production services
     
 
Banana Whale - $120,000 for B2B software provided in the online gaming industry.

 

Gross Margin: Gross margin deficit, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was approximately $907,000 as compared to $9,000 margin deficit for the three months ended September 30, 2017, due to the increase in amortization of software development costs, offset by increased revenues.

 

Operating Expenses: General and administrative expenses and depreciation were approximately $1.6 million and $0.34 million during the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The major costs included in the three months ended September 30, 2018 were consulting costs including due diligence and advisory costs incurred in the acquisitions strategy of the Company.

 

Net Loss: Net Loss from continuing operations, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was approximately $2.5 million as compared to net loss of approximately $0.5 million for the same period in 2017. The increase in the losses is attributable to the increase in General and Administrative expenses, offset by an increase in revenue, as discussed above.

Revenue: Our revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was approximately $0.9 million as compared to approximately $0.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, an increase of approximately $0.4 million, or 72.2%. The increase was due to the increases in revenue generated by the newly acquired subsidiaries.

 

Cost of Revenue: Cost of revenue was approximately $2. 6 million for the nine months ending September 30, 2018 as compared to $0. 5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The main reason for the increase was the amortization charge of $1.8 million relating to software development costs.

 

Gross Margin: Gross margin deficit for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was approximately $1.7 million as compared to a gain of $0.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, a decrease of approximately $1.7 million. The decrease was mainly due to the amortization charge of $1.83 million, offset by increased revenues, as set forth above herein.

 

Operating Expenses: Operating expenses, including general and administrative expenses, depreciation and acquisition costs were approximately $6.6 million and $0.9 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The Company incurred the increased costs as a result of the strategy of business acquisitions and the operational costs relating thereto.

 

Net Loss: Net Loss after discontinued operations, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was approximately $8.7 million as compared to loss of approximately $3.8 million for the same period in 2017. The increase in loss was primarily due to the increase in non-cash general and administrative expenses, and acquisition costs offset by an increase in revenues mentioned above.

Net cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 related to cash consideration in the acquisition of LMH offset by the cash acquired in the Banana Whale acquisition.

 

Net cash generated in financing activities was approximately $2.22 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 as compared to $0.51 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The cash generated from financing activities was primarily from the proceeds from the sale of new shares of common stock, the exercise of common stock warrants and proceeds from convertible debt during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

At
September 30

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

Not applicable.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls are procedures that are designed with the objective of ensuring that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act, such as this Report, is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls are also designed with the objective of ensuring that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including the chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our management evaluated, with the participation of our current chief executive officer and chief financial officer (our “Certifying Officers”), the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of September 30, 2018, pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) under the Exchange Act. Based upon that evaluation, our Certifying Officers concluded that, as of September 30, 2018, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. This was due to certain deficiencies in our controls over financial reporting. In particular a lack of accounting personnel has resulted in an inability to segregate various accounting functions

 

We do not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all errors and all instances of fraud. Disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the disclosure controls and procedures are met. Further, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all disclosure controls and procedures, no evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures can provide absolute assurance that we have detected all our control deficiencies and instances of fraud, if any. The design of disclosure controls and procedures also is based partly on 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.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the fiscal quarter covered by this report that has materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

On May 30, 2018, Zhanming Wu (“Wu”), the record owner of 15,000,000 shares of common stock of One Horizon Group, Inc. (the “Company”), commenced an action in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware [Case No.2018-0387-JRS; the “Injunction Action”] against the Company and its directors and officers (collectively, the “Director Defendants”) alleging multiple breaches of contract between the Company and Wu, and seeking (i) damages; (ii) to enjoin the Company from issuing, offering, selling or granting any shares of its common stock to any person or entity, or consummate any merger, acquisition or similar transaction without the prior approval of Wu, and to prevent the Individual Defendants from undermining that right by engaging in any further transactions designed to entrench themselves as directors and officers of the Company and to dilute Wu’s stock ownership below 30% of the outstanding shares of the Company, (iii) to enforce Wu’s right to appoint four directors to the Company’s Board of Directors, (iv) to rescind the issuance of 7,383,000 shares to the former stockholders of Banana Whale Studios Pte. Ltd (“Banana Whale”) in exchange for 51% of the outstanding shares of Banana Whale (the “Banana Whale Acquisition”), (iv) to obtain a declaration that the Individual Defendants have breached their fiduciary duty of loyalty by taking actions to entrench themselves on the Company’s Board of Directors; and (v) seeking an award of attorneys’ fees and costs in connection with the litigation and such other relief as the Court deems fair and equitable.

 

On June 11, 2018, Wu commenced a second action in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware [Case No.2018-0427-JRS; the “225 Action”] under Section 225 of the Delaware General Corporation Law seeking (i) to appoint four directors to the Company’s Board of Directors, (ii) to enjoin the Company and its affiliates from issuing, offering, selling or granting any shares of the Company’s common stock to any person or entity, or consummate any merger, acquisition or similar transaction without the prior approval of Wu during the pendency of the action and (iii) seeking an award of attorneys’ fees and costs in connection with the litigation and such other relief as the Court deems fair and equitable.

 

On October 15, 2018, the parties entered into an agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) which provides for the immediate cessation of all activities in the two actions and which will result in the dismissal of the two actions upon the fulfillment by the Company of certain conditions. Among the conditions to dismissal which the Company is required to meet to obtain the complete dismissal of the actions are the issuance of 354,409 shares to Wu to reimburse a portion of the expenses incurred in connection with the actions, the nomination and election to the Company’s Board of Directors of up to two individuals designated by Wu, the redemption of up to approximately 850,000 shares of common stock at $0.65 each, from certain investors whom Wu recommended to invest in the Company (the “Additional Investors”) should they request that the Company do so and the facilitation of the sale of shares of the Company’s common stock by Wu, including the registration of such shares for sale under the Securities Act. Pending the re-election of Wu’s nominees to the Board of Directors at the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the Company will continue to comply with the terms of the Status Quo Order issued in July in connection with the 225 Action. The 225 Action will be dismissed and the Company will no longer be obliged to comply with the Status Quo Order upon the re-election of Wu’s nominees to the Board of Directors at the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

 

A Stipulation of Dismissal in respect of the Injunction Action will be filed and the parties will exchange releases upon the fulfillment of certain conditions, including the registration of Wu’s shares and the removal of the restrictive legend from Wu’s shares and the shares held by the Additional Investors. Notwithstanding such dismissal, should the registration of Wu’s shares lapse for any reason prior to October 1, 2019, Wu shall be entitled to enforce his rights under the side letters which were the basis of many of his claims, which letters are deemed to be a part of the Settlement Agreement as if set forth therein. If the Dismissal Stipulation has been filed in the Injunction Action and Wu’s shares have remained continuously registered until October 1, 2019, the side letters shall be deemed of no force and effect.

4.

a)
The Company shall issue and immediately and irrevocably deliver to the Consultant One Million Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand (1,250,000) shares of OHGI Common Stock (“Consultant Shares”).

 

b)
At no time may Consultant be deemed to be the beneficial owner of more than 4.99% of OHGI’s Common Stock, as determined under the beneficial ownership rules of the Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”) by virtue of the ownership by Consultant of OHGI Common Stock (“4.99% Blocker”).

 

c)

(iii)
cooperating and communicating with the Consultant and its broker in order to use the Company’s commercially reasonable efforts to clear the Consultant Shares and any and all Subsequent Consultant Shares of restriction as soon as possible after presentation of a Rule 144 application by the Consultant or its broker to either the Company or its transfer agent. Further, the Company agrees not to unreasonably withhold or delay the approval of any application filed by the Consultant or its broker under Rule 144 to clear the Consultant Shares or any and all Subsequent Consultant Shares of restriction.

 

g)
The Parties shall negotiate and agree in good faith regarding the Consultant’s Compensation for any Consulting Services to be provided beyond the scope of this Agreement and/or the Term depending upon the Company’s needs at such time and the services being requested.

 

5.             LIMITATION OF ENGAGEMENT. The Company acknowledges that the Consultant is providing the Consulting Services as an independent contractor.

c)
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida applicable to agreements made and to be fully performed therein.

e)
Any Compensation obligation hereunder shall survive the merger, acquisition or other change in the form of entity of the Company and to the extent it remains unfulfilled, shall be assigned and transferred to any successor to the Company.

 

f)
It is understood and agreed that the Company and not the Consultant is responsible to perform any and all due diligence on any broker/dealer, lender, merger or acquisition candidate, strategic partner or transaction introduced to the Company by the Consultant under this Agreement prior to the Company receiving funds or closing any transaction.

 

8.             NOTICE. All notices and correspondence hereunder shall be in writing and sent by e-mail or FedEx to the applicable Party at the addresses set forth above.

The Company agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Consultant, its officers, directors, members, employees, affiliates, and agents against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any act, action or omission, arising out of or related to the services provided by Consultant under this Agreement, except for acts of the Consultant of willful misconduct or gross negligence related to this Agreement.

 

10.           LIMITATIONS. Any liability of the Consultant, its officers, directors, members, employees, affiliates, agents or representatives shall not exceed ten percent (10%) of the initial value in United States Dollars of the Compensation actually paid to the Consultant by the Company pursuant to Section 4 of this Agreement.

 

11.           EXPENSES. The Company will reimburse the Consultant for its receipted expenses approved by the Company in advance, including, but not limited to, expenses relating to the Consultant’s travel and lodging, which expenses during the Term shall not exceed fifty thousand dollars ($50,000). The Consultant shall always seek advance approval from the Company for any single expense that exceeds five thousand dollars ($5,000). The Company shall also reimburse Consultant upon presentation of any expenses incurred by the Consultant for collection of any Compensation due to the Consultant under Section 4 of this Agreement, including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs. Reimbursement shall be made within fifteen (15) business days following the receipt by the Company of the Consultant’s invoice related to any such expenses.

12.           MISCELLANEOUS. This Agreement shall not be modified or amended except in writing signed by the Parties; shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective assigns or successors; and constitutes the entire agreement of the Parties and supersedes any prior agreements. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable in any respect, such determination will not affect such provision in any other respect, and the remainder of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (including e-mail scans) each of which shall be deemed an original but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

(b)       These indemnification provisions shall extend to the following persons (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”): Purchaser, its present and former affiliated entities, partners, employees, legal counsel, agents, advisors and controlling persons (within the meaning of the federal securities laws), and the officers, directors, partners, stockholders, members, managers, employees, legal counsel, agents, advisors and controlling persons of any of them and any assigns.

Any such counsel shall, to the extent consistent with its professional responsibilities, cooperate with the Company and any counsel designated by them.

(d)        In order to provide for just and equitable contribution, if a claim for indemnification pursuant to these indemnification provisions is made but it is found in a final judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction (not subject to further appeal) that such indemnification may not be enforced in such case, even though the express provisions hereof provide for indemnification in such case, then the Company shall contribute to the Losses to which any Indemnified Party may be subject: (i) in accordance with the relative benefits received by the Company and its stockholders, subsidiaries and affiliates, on the one hand, and the Indemnified Party, on the other hand; and (ii) if (and only if) the allocation provided in clause (i) of this sentence is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as to reflect not only the relative benefits, but also the relative fault of the Company, on the one hand, and the Indemnified Party, on the other hand, in connection with the statements, acts or omissions that resulted in such Losses as well as any relevant equitable considerations. No person found liable for a fraudulent misrepresentation shall be entitled to contribution from any person who is not also found liable for fraudulent misrepresentation. The relative benefits received (or anticipated to be received) by the Company and its stockholders, subsidiaries and affiliates shall be deemed to be equal to the purchase price for the Purchased Shares.

 

(e)        The indemnification provisions shall be binding upon the Company and its successors and assigns and shall inure to the benefit of the Indemnified Parties and their respective successors, assigns, heirs and personal representatives and shall remain operative and in full force and effect after the Closing and for the maximum time period allowable under applicable law.

  (c)(3) Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party of notice of the commencement of any action (including any governmental action) for which a party may be entitled to indemnification hereunder, such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against any indemnifying party, give the indemnifying party notice of the commencement thereof. The indemnifying party shall have the right to participate in such action and, to the extent the indemnifying party so desires, participate jointly with any other indemnifying party to which notice has been given, and to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably mutually satisfactory to the parties; provided, however, that an indemnified party (together with all other indemnified parties that may be represented without conflict by one (1) counsel) shall have the right to retain one (1) separate counsel, with the reasonable fees and expenses to be paid by the indemnifying party, if representation of such indemnified party by the counsel retained by the indemnifying party would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between such indemnified party and any other party represented by such counsel in such action. The failure to give notice to the indemnifying party within a reasonable time of the commencement of any such action will not relieve such indemnifying party of any liability to the indemnified party, except to the extent, and only to the extent, that such failure actually and materially prejudices the indemnifying party’s ability to defend such action. The failure to give notice to the indemnifying party will not relieve it of any liability that it may have to any indemnified party otherwise than as provided herein.

The relative fault of the indemnifying party and of the indemnified party shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or allegedly untrue statement of a material fact, or the omission or alleged omission of a material fact, relates to information supplied by the indemnifying party or by the indemnified party and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission; provided, however, that, in any such case, no Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) will be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation; and provided further that in no event shall the aggregate amounts payable by the Purchaser by way of indemnity or contribution exceed the Purchase Price.

 

(d) The obligations of the Company and the Purchaser under this Appendix A shall survive the completion of any offering of the Registrable Securities in a registration under this Appendix A, and otherwise shall survive the termination of this Agreement for the maximum time period allowable under applicable law.

4.4       Indemnification.

 

(a)        The Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Purchaser and each of the other Indemnified Parties (as hereinafter defined) from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, obligations, penalties, judgments, awards, liabilities, costs, expenses and disbursements, and any and all actions, suits, proceedings and investigations in respect thereof and any and all legal and other costs, expenses and disbursements in giving testimony or furnishing documents in response to a subpoena or otherwise (including, without limitation, the costs, expenses and disbursements, as and when incurred, of investigating, preparing, pursing or defending any such action, suit, proceeding or investigation (whether or not in connection with litigation in which any Indemnified Party is a party) (collectively, “Losses”), directly or indirectly, caused by, relating to, based upon, arising out of, or in connection with, Purchaser’s purchase of the Purchased Shares pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, any breach by the Company of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement, or the enforcement by Purchaser of its rights under this Agreement, except to the extent that any such Losses are found in a final judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction (not subject to further appeal) to have resulted primarily and directly from the willful misconduct of the Indemnified Party seeking indemnification hereunder.

 

(b)       These indemnification provisions shall extend to the following persons (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”): Purchaser, its present and former affiliated entities, partners, employees, legal counsel, agents, advisors and controlling persons (within the meaning of the federal securities laws), and the officers, directors, partners, stockholders, members, managers, employees, legal counsel, agents, advisors and controlling persons of any of them and any assigns.

An Indemnified Party shall have the right to retain counsel of its own choice to represent it, and the fees, expenses and disbursements of such counsel shall be borne by the Company. Any such counsel shall, to the extent consistent with its professional responsibilities, cooperate with the Company and any counsel designated by them. The Company shall be liable for any settlement of any claim against any Indemnified Party made with the written consent of the Company. The Company shall not, without the prior written consent of Purchaser, settle or compromise any claim, or permit a default or consent to the entry of any judgment in respect thereof, unless such settlement, compromise or consent (i) includes, as an unconditional term thereof, the giving by the claimant to all of the Indemnified Parties of an unconditional release from all liability in respect of such claim; and (ii) does not contain any factual or legal admission by or with respect to an Indemnified Party or an adverse statement with respect to the character, professionalism, expertise or reputation of any Indemnified Party or any action or inaction of any Indemnified Party.

(d)        In order to provide for just and equitable contribution, if a claim for indemnification pursuant to these indemnification provisions is made but it is found in a final judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction (not subject to further appeal) that such indemnification may not be enforced in such case, even though the express provisions hereof provide for indemnification in such case, then the Company shall contribute to the Losses to which any Indemnified Party may be subject: (i) in accordance with the relative benefits received by the Company and its stockholders, subsidiaries and affiliates, on the one hand, and the Indemnified Party, on the other hand; and (ii) if (and only if) the allocation provided in clause (i) of this sentence is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as to reflect not only the relative benefits, but also the relative fault of the Company, on the one hand, and the Indemnified Party, on the other hand, in connection with the statements, acts or omissions that resulted in such Losses as well as any relevant equitable considerations. No person found liable for a fraudulent misrepresentation shall be entitled to contribution from any person who is not also found liable for fraudulent misrepresentation. The relative benefits received (or anticipated to be received) by the Company and its stockholders, subsidiaries and affiliates shall be deemed to be equal to the purchase price for the Purchased Shares.

 

(e)        The indemnification provisions shall be binding upon the Company and its successors and assigns and shall inure to the benefit of the Indemnified Parties and their respective successors, assigns, heirs and personal representatives and shall remain operative and in full force and effect after the Closing and for the maximum time period allowable under applicable law.

As a condition to the registration of the Registrable Securities, the Purchaser shall furnish the Company and its counsel with such information regarding itself, the Registrable Securities held by it, and the intended method of disposition of such Registrable Securities as is reasonably required to file the Registration Statement and cause the timely registration of the Registrable Securities.

12

 

 

  (c)(3) Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party of notice of the commencement of any action (including any governmental action) for which a party may be entitled to indemnification hereunder, such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against any indemnifying party, give the indemnifying party notice of the commencement thereof. The indemnifying party shall have the right to participate in such action and, to the extent the indemnifying party so desires, participate jointly with any other indemnifying party to which notice has been given, and to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably mutually satisfactory to the parties; provided, however, that an indemnified party (together with all other indemnified parties that may be represented without conflict by one (1) counsel) shall have the right to retain one (1) separate counsel, with the reasonable fees and expenses to be paid by the indemnifying party, if representation of such indemnified party by the counsel retained by the indemnifying party would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between such indemnified party and any other party represented by such counsel in such action. The failure to give notice to the indemnifying party within a reasonable time of the commencement of any such action will not relieve such indemnifying party of any liability to the indemnified party, except to the extent, and only to the extent, that such failure actually and materially prejudices the indemnifying party’s ability to defend such action. The failure to give notice to the indemnifying party will not relieve it of any liability that it may have to any indemnified party otherwise than as provided herein.

 

  (c)(4) To provide for just and equitable contribution to joint liability under the Securities Act in any case in which either (i) any party otherwise entitled to indemnification hereunder makes a claim for indemnification pursuant to this Appendix A but it is judicially determined (by the entry of a final judgment or decree by a court of competent jurisdiction and the expiration of time to appeal or the denial of the last right of appeal) that such indemnification may not be enforced in such case, notwithstanding the fact that this Appendix A provides for indemnification in such case; or (ii) contribution under the Securities Act may be required on the part of any party hereto for which indemnification is provided under this Appendix A, then, and in each such case, such parties will contribute to the aggregate losses, claims, damages, liabilities, or expenses to which they may be subject (after contribution from others) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of each of the indemnifying party and the indemnified party in connection with the statements, omissions, or other actions that resulted in such loss, claim, damage, liability, or expense, as well as to reflect any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of the indemnifying party and of the indemnified party shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or allegedly untrue statement of a material fact, or the omission or alleged omission of a material fact, relates to information supplied by the indemnifying party or by the indemnified party and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission; provided, however, that, in any such case, no Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) will be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation; and provided further that in no event shall the aggregate amounts payable by the Purchaser by way of indemnity or contribution exceed the Purchase Price.

 

(d) The obligations of the Company and the Purchaser under this Appendix A shall survive the completion of any offering of the Registrable Securities in a registration under this Appendix A, and otherwise shall survive the termination of this Agreement for the maximum time period allowable under applicable law.
