Results of Operations
Three Months Ended March 31, 2020 Compared to the Three Months Ended March 31,
We had no revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.
We incurred general and administrative expenses of $171,428 and $1,000,347 for
the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, representing a
decrease of $828,919 between the two periods. These expenses consisted primarily
of consulting fees, pre-licensing fees, professional fees, and other general and
administrative costs. The decrease in consulting fees between the two periods
from $419,863 in 2019 to $46,160 in 2020 was due to the decrease in compensation
for our president, chief operating officer, and Board of Directors.
Pre-licensing fees decreased from $250,000 in 2019 to $0 in 2020. Once the
definitive licensing agreement is signed with the license holder the Company
will be able to adjust this pre-licensing fees from future minimum royalty fees
that would be payable to the license holder. Professional fees decreased from
$68,548 in 2019 to $9,379 in 2020 due to lower legal services as 2019 saw the
Company spending on the evaluation of potential business opportunities and
regulatory compliance. The decrease in other general and administrative costs
decreased from $366,288 in 2019 to $116,591 in 2020 due to decreased travel
costs, advertising and marketing costs, compliance fees, and stock-based
compensation. Service costs decreased from $35,122 in 2019 to $0 in 2020 as many
of the costs for the client being recognized are now being charged to them as
per the amended agreement.
Consulting fees of $45,060 in the first quarter of 2020 relate in part to
$15,000 paid to our Board of Directors, $30,000 paid for accounting services and
other smaller costs.
The pre-licensing fees stem from an agreement between the Company and a
Other Income (Expense)

Holdings. Other expenses include interest expense on convertible notes payable
of $37,919 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to $14,534 for the
same period last year.
Net Loss from Operations
We incurred net income from operations of $100,702 and loss of $1,136,510 for
the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, representing a net
change of $1,237,212, primarily attributable to the factors discussed above
under the heading "Operating Expenses".

Current assets were $49,001 as at March 31, 2020 and $42,886 at December 31,
2019. The increase in current assets as at March 31, 2020 was due to loans from
Ryde Holdings received partially offset by the increase in cash spent on

Three months Three months

Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities $ (1,351 )$ (791,853 )
Net cash provided by investing activities
Net cash provided by financing activities 10,000 325,000
Net changes in cash and cash equivalents $ 8,649$ (466,853 )
Net cash used in operating activities was $1,351 for the three-month period
ended March 31, 2020, as compared to net cash used of $791,853 for the
three-month period ended March 31, 2019, a decrease of $790,502. The decrease in
net cash used in operating activities was primarily due to receivables paid by
Ryde Holdings of $275,000 mainly offset by decreases in accounts payables and
accrued liabilities of $135,431, a decrease in accounts receivable and an
increase in deferred service costs partially offset by a decrease in deferred
offering costs, an increase in accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and an
increase in deferred revenue.
There was no investing activities for the three-month period ended March 31,
2020 and for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019.
Financing activities provided cash of $10,000 for the three months ended March
31, 2020 and $325,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. In 2019,
sBetOne issued $325,000 of convertible debentures.
Our estimated general and administrative expenses, operating expenses, and
service costs for the next 12 months are $780,000 and are based on our current
expenditures given the current market conditions.
We will require additional cash resources to meet our planned capital
expenditures and working capital requirements for the next 12 months. We expect
to derive such cash through the sale of equity or debt securities or by
obtaining a credit facility. The sale of additional equity securities will
result in dilution to our stockholders. The incurrence of indebtedness will
result in debt service obligations, could cause additional dilution to our
stockholders, and could require us to agree to financial covenants that could
restrict our operations or modify our plans to source a new business
opportunity. Financing may not be available in amounts or on terms acceptable to
us, if at all. Failure to raise additional funds could cause our company to
Our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared using
generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America
applicable to a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and
liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. We have not yet
established a source of revenues sufficient to cover our operating costs and to
allow us to continue as a going concern. We have incurred losses since inception
resulting in an accumulated deficit of $9,210,074 as at March 31, 2020 (December
31, 2019: $9,310,776). Our ability to operate as a going concern is dependent on
obtaining adequate capital to fund operating losses until we become profitable.
In its report on our financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2019
and 2018, our independent registered public accounting firm included an
explanatory paragraph regarding substantial doubt about our ability to continue
as a going concern. Our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do
not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have, or are reasonably likely to
have, a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in
financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity,
capital expenditures or capital resources.
