CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This   Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “Report”) of Motorsport Games Inc. (the “Company,” “Motorsport Games,” “we,” “us” or “our”) contains certain statements, which are not historical facts and are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of federal securities laws. These forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks, trends and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations and projections relating to our financial condition, results of operations, plans, objectives, strategies, future performance and business. You can identify forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. We use words, such as “could,” “would,” “may,” “might,” “will,” “expect,” “likely,” “believe,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “project” and other similar expressions to identify some forward-looking statements, but not all forward-looking statements include these words. For example, forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make relating to:

 

  our future business, results of operations, financial condition and/or liquidity, including with respect to the ongoing effects of the war between Russia and Ukraine;
     
  our intended corporate purpose to make the thrill of motorsports accessible to everyone by creating the highest quality, most sophisticated and most innovative experiences for racers, gamers and fans of all ages;
     
  new or planned products or offerings, including the anticipated timing of our new product launches under our updated product roadmap, such as our anticipated release of NASCAR, INDYCAR, British Touring Car Championship and Le Mans games in 2023 and 2024;
     
  our intentions with respect to our mobile games, including expectations that we will continue to focus on developing and further enhancing our multi-platform games for mobile phones, as well as the anticipated timing of the release of our future mobile games;
     
 

our plans to strive to become a leader in organizing and facilitating esports tournaments, competitions, and events for our licensed racing games as well as on behalf of third-party racing game developers and publishers;

 

  our belief that connecting virtual racing gamers and esports fans on a digital entertainment and social platform represents the greatest opportunity to enhance the way that people learn, watch, play, and experience racing video games and racing esports;
     
  our future plans and expectations for Traxion .GG (“Traxion”), our online destination for the virtual racing community, including with regards to its functionality and content;
     
  our beliefs regarding the growing importance and business viability of esports, especially within the racing and motorsport genres;
     
  our intention to expand our license arrangements to other internationally recognized racing series and the platforms we operate on;
     
  our expectation that we will be able to extend or re-negotiate our promotion agreement with Motorsport Network, LLC (“Motorsport Network”) on reasonable terms;
     
  our intention to continue seeking to expand our audience base through traditional marketing and sales distribution channels including Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, YouTube and other online social networks;

 

ii
 

 

  our belief that our esports business has the potential to generate incremental revenues through the further sale of media rights to our esports events and competitions, as well as merchandising and sports betting, if the esports audience pattern continues to grow;
     
  our expectation that having a broader product portfolio will improve our operating results and provide a revenue stream that is less cyclical than releasing a single game per year;
     
  our expectation that future revenue streams will become further diversified and consist of revenues from multiple games and different franchises;
     
  our plans to drive ongoing engagement and incremental revenue from recurrent consumer spending on our titles through in-game purchases and extra content;
     
  our expectation that we will continue to derive significant revenues from sales of our products to a very limited number of distribution partners;
     
  our expectation that we will continue to invest in technology, hardware and software to support our games and services, including with respect to security protections;
     
  our belief that the global adoption of portable and mobile gaming devices leading to significant growth in portable and mobile gaming is a continuing trend;
     
  our intention to continue to look for opportunities to expand the recurring portion of our business;
     
  our liquidity and capital requirements, including, without limitation, as to our ability to continue as a going concern, our belief that we will not have sufficient cash on hand to fund our operations for the remainder of 2023 based on the cash and cash equivalents available as of April 30, 2023 and our average cash burn, our belief that additional funding will be required in order to continue operations, our belief that there is a substantial likelihood that Motorsport Network may not fulfill our future borrowing requests under the $12 million Line of Credit (as defined in this Report), our belief that it will be necessary for us to secure additional funds, whether through a variety of equity and/or debt financing arrangements or similar transactions or implementing cost reductions through cost control initiatives, to continue our existing business operations and to fund our obligations; our expectation to generate additional liquidity through consummating one or more potential equity and/or debt financings, achieving cost reductions by maintaining and enhancing cost control initiatives, such as those that we expect to achieve through the 2022 Restructuring Program (as defined in this Report), and/or adjusting our product roadmap to reduce the near-term need for working capital, as well as statements regarding our cash flows and anticipated uses of cash, as well as our belief that additional funding in the form of potential equity and/or debt financing arrangements or similar transactions are viable options to support our future liquidity needs, provided that such opportunities can be obtained on terms that are commercially competitive and on terms acceptable to us;
     
  our expectations that we will continue to incur losses for the foreseeable future as we continue to incur significant expenses;
     
  our intended use of proceeds from the sales of our equity securities;
     
  our expectations relating to future impairment of intangible assets;
     
  our plans and intentions with respect to our remediation efforts to address the material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting;
     
  our belief that the outcome of all pending legal proceedings in the aggregate is not reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on our business, prospects, results of operations, financial condition and/or cash flows, except as otherwise disclosed in this Report, and that in light of the uncertainties involved in legal proceedings generally, the ultimate outcome of a particular matter could be material to the Company’s operating results for a particular period depending on, among other things, the size of the loss or the nature of the liability imposed and the level of the Company’s income for that particular period, including, without limitation, our beliefs regarding the merit of any plaintiff’s allegations and the impact of any claims and litigation that we are subject to;

 

iii
 

 

  our intention to not declare dividends in the foreseeable future;
     
  our ability to utilize net operating loss carryforwards;
     
  our expectations regarding the future impact of implementing management strategies, potential acquisitions and industry trends;
     
  our belief that we may decide in the future to avail ourselves of certain corporate governance requirements of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”) as a result of being a “controlled company” within the meaning of the NASDAQ rules;
     
  our expectations regarding the 2022 Restructuring Program, such as: (i) our expectations to eliminate approximately 20% of our overhead costs worldwide; (ii) our expectations regarding the amount and timing of the charges and payments related to the 2022 Restructuring Program; (iii) our expectations that as a result of the 2022 Restructuring Program, we will deliver approximately $4 million of total annualized cost reductions by the end of 2023; (iv) our expectations that total restructuring costs will fall within the previously estimated range of $0.1 million to $0.3 million; and (v) our plans to continue our efforts to achieve further cost reductions; and
     
  our expectation that our current development operations will not have significant exposure to changes in circumstances arising from the Ukraine-Russia conflict.

 

The forward-looking statements contained in this Report are based on assumptions that we have made in light of our industry experience and our perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors that we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. As you read and consider this Report, you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of performance or results. They involve risks, uncertainties (many of which are beyond our control) and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect our actual operating and financial performance and cause our performance to differ materially from the performance anticipated in the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those projected in any forward-looking statements are discussed in “Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 (the “2022 Form 10-K”) and in “Risk Factors” in Part II, Item 1A of this Report, as updated in our subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). In addition to factors that may be described in our filings with the SEC, including this Report, the following factors, among others, could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements made by us:

 

  (i) difficulties and/or delays in accessing available liquidity, and other unanticipated difficulties in resolving our continuing financial condition and ability to obtain additional capital to meet our financial obligations, including, without limitation, difficulties in securing funding that is on commercially acceptable terms to us or at all, such as our inability to complete in whole or in part any potential debt and/or equity financing transactions or similar transactions, as well as any ability to achieve cost reductions, including, without limitation, those which we expect to achieve through the 2022 Restructuring Program; difficulties, delays or our inability to efficiently manage our cash and working capital; higher than expected operating expenses; adverse impacts to our liquidity position resulting from the higher interest rate and higher inflationary environment; the unavailability of funds from anticipated borrowing sources; the unavailability of funds from our inability to reduce or control costs, including, without limitation, those which we expect to achieve through the 2022 Restructuring Program; lower than expected operating revenues, cash on hand and/or funds available from anticipated borrowings or funds expected to be generated from cost reductions resulting from the implementation of cost control initiatives, such as through the 2022 Restructuring Program; and/or less than anticipated cash generated by our operations; and/or adverse effects on our liquidity resulting from changes in economic conditions (such as continued volatility in the financial markets, whether attributable to COVID-19, the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine or otherwise; significantly higher rates of inflation, significantly higher interest rates and higher labor costs; the impact of higher energy prices on consumer purchasing behavior, monetary conditions and foreign currency fluctuations, tariffs, foreign currency controls and/or government-mandated pricing controls, as well as in trade, monetary, fiscal and tax policies), political conditions (such as military actions and terrorist activities) and pandemics and natural disasters; and/or the unavailability of funds from (A) delaying the implementation of or revising certain aspects of our business strategy; (B) reducing or delaying the development and launch of new products and events; (C) reducing or delaying capital spending, product development spending and marketing and promotional spending; (D) selling assets or operations; (E) seeking additional capital contributions and/or loans from Motorsport Network, the Company’s other affiliates and/or third parties; and/or (F) reducing other discretionary spending;

 

iv
 

 

  (ii) difficulties, delays or less than expected results in achieving our growth plans, objectives and expectations, such as due to a slower than anticipated economic recovery and/or our inability, in whole or in part, to continue to execute our business strategies and plans, such as due to less than anticipated customer acceptance of our new game titles, our experiencing difficulties or the inability to launch our games as planned, less than anticipated performance of the games impacting customer acceptance and sales and/or greater than anticipated costs and expenses to develop and launch our games, including, without limitation, higher than expected labor costs;
     
  (iii) difficulties, delays in or unanticipated events that may impact the timing and scope of new product launches, such as due to difficulties or delays related to our transition from using development staff in Russia to using development staff in other countries and/or difficulties and/or delays arising out of any resurgence of the ongoing and prolonged COVID-19 pandemic;
     
  (iv) less than expected benefits from implementing our management strategies and/or adverse economic, market and geopolitical conditions that negatively impact industry trends, such as significant changes in the labor markets, an extended or higher than expected inflationary environment (such as the impact on consumer discretionary spending as a result of significant increases in energy and gas prices which have been increasing since early in 2020), a higher interest rate environment, tax increases impacting consumer discretionary spending and or quantitative easing that results in higher interest rates that negatively impact consumers’ discretionary spending, or adverse developments relating to the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine;
     
  (v) delays and higher than anticipated expenses related to the ongoing and prolonged COVID-19 pandemic;
     
  (vi) difficulties and/or delays adversely impacting our ability (or inability) to maintain existing, and to secure additional, licenses and other agreements with various racing series;
     
  (vii) difficulties and/or delays adversely impacting our ability to successfully manage and integrate any joint ventures, acquisitions of businesses, solutions or technologies;
     
  (viii)  unanticipated operating costs, transaction costs and actual or contingent liabilities;
     
  (ix) difficulties and/or delays adversely impacting our ability to attract and retain qualified employees and key personnel;
     
  (x) adverse effects of increased competition;
     
  (xi) changes in consumer behavior, including as a result of general economic factors, such as increased inflation, recessionary factors, higher energy prices and higher interest rates;
     
  (xii) difficulties and/or delays adversely impacting our ability to protect our intellectual property;

 

v
 

 

  (xiii) local, industry and general business and economic conditions;
     
  (xiv) unanticipated adverse effects on our business, prospects, results of operations, financial condition, cash flows and/or liquidity as a result of unexpected developments with respect to our legal proceedings;
     
  (xv)

difficulties, delays or our inability to successfully complete the 2022 Restructuring Program, in whole or in part, which could result in less than expected operating and financial benefits from such actions, as well as delays in completing the 2022 Restructuring Program, which could reduce the benefits realized from such activities; and

 

  (xvi) higher than anticipated restructuring charges and/or payments and/or changes in the expected timing of such charges and/or payments; and/or less than anticipated annualized cost reductions from our plans and/or changes in the timing of realizing such cost reductions, such as due to less than anticipated liquidity to fund such activities and/or more than expected costs to achieve the expected cost reductions.

 

Additionally, there are other risks and uncertainties described from time to time in the reports that we file with the SEC. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize or should any of these assumptions prove to be incorrect, our actual operating and financial performance may vary in material respects from the performance projected in these forward-looking statements. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made, and except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement contained in this Report to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which it is made or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances, except as otherwise required by law. New factors that could cause our business not to develop as we expect emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. Further, we cannot assess the impact of each currently known or new factor on our results of operations or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

NOTE 1 - BUSINESS ORGANIZATION, NATURE OF OPERATIONS, AND RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

 

Organization and Operations

 

Motorsport Gaming US LLC (“Motorsport Gaming”) was established as a limited liability company on August 2, 2018 under the laws of the State of Florida. On January 8, 2021, Motorsport Gaming converted into a Delaware corporation pursuant to a statutory conversion and changed its name to Motorsport Games Inc. (“Motorsport Games” or the “Company”). Upon effecting the corporate conversion on January 8, 2021, Motorsport Games now holds all the property and assets of Motorsport Gaming, and all of the debts and obligations of Motorsport Gaming were assumed by Motorsport Games by operation of law upon such corporate conversion.

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

Liquidity and Going Concern

 

The Company had a net loss of approximately $5.3 million, negative cash flows from operations of approximately $5.7 million and an accumulated deficit of $79.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. As of March 31, 2023, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $5.8 million, which was reduced to $4.9 million as of April 30, 2023. The Company expects to continue to incur significant operating expenses and, as a result, will need to grow revenues to reach profitability and positive cash flows. The Company expects to continue to incur losses for the foreseeable future as it continues to develop its product portfolio and invest in developing new video game titles.

 

The Company’s future liquidity and capital requirements include funds to support the planned costs to operate its business, including amounts required to fund working capital, support the development and introduction of new products, maintain existing titles, and certain capital expenditures. The adequacy of the Company’s available funds generally depends on many factors, including its ability to successfully develop consumer-preferred new products or enhancements to its existing products, continued development and expansion of its esports platform and its ability to enter into collaborations with other companies and/or acquire other companies or technologies to enhance or complement its product and service offerings.

 

The Company continues to explore additional funding in the form of potential equity and/or debt financing arrangements or similar transactions and consider these to be viable options to support future liquidity needs, provided that such opportunities can be obtained on terms that are commercially competitive and on terms acceptable to the Company. The Company is also seeking to improve its liquidity by achieving cost reductions by maintaining and enhancing cost control initiatives, such as those that it expects to achieve through its previously announced organizational restructuring program (the “2022 Restructuring Program”).

 

As the Company continues to evaluate incremental funding solutions, it has reevaluated its product roadmap in the first quarter of 2023 and modified the expected timing and scope of certain new product releases. These changes have been made not only to maintain the development of high-quality video game titles, but also to improve the timing of certain working capital requirements and reduce expenditures, thereby decreasing our expected future cash-burn and improve our short-term liquidity needs. If needed, further adjustments could be made that would decrease short-term working capital requirements, while pushing out the timing of expected revenues.

 

The Company expects to generate additional liquidity through consummating one or more potential equity and/or debt financings or similar transactions, achieving cost reductions by maintaining and enhancing cost control initiatives, such as those that it expects to achieve through the 2022 Restructuring Program, and/or further adjusting its product roadmap to reduce near term need for working capital. If the Company is unable to generate adequate revenue and profit growth, there can be no assurances that such actions will provide the Company with sufficient liquidity to meet its cash requirements as, among other things, its liquidity position can be impacted by a number of factors, including its level of sales, costs and expenditures, economic conditions in the capital markets, especially for technology companies, as well as accounts receivable and sales allowances.

 

There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain funds on commercially acceptable terms, if at all, to satisfy its future needed liquidity and capital resources. If the Company is unable to obtain adequate funds on acceptable terms, it may be required to, among other things, significantly curtail or discontinue operations or obtain funds by entering into financing agreements on unattractive terms.

 

If the Company is unable to satisfy its cash requirements from the sources identified above, it could be required to adopt one or more of the following alternatives:

 

  selling assets or operations;
  seeking additional capital contributions and/or loans from Motorsport Network, the Company’s other affiliates and/or third parties; and/or
  reducing other discretionary spending.

 

There can be no assurance that the Company would be able to take any of the actions referred to above because of a variety of commercial or market factors, including, without limitation, market conditions being unfavorable for an equity or debt issuance or similar transactions, additional capital contributions and/or loans not being available from Motorsport Network or affiliates and/or third parties, or that the transactions may not be permitted under the terms of the Company’s various debt instruments then in effect, such as due to restrictions on the incurrence of debt, incurrence of liens, asset dispositions and related party transactions. In addition, such actions, if taken, may not enable the Company to satisfy its cash requirements if the actions that the Company is able to consummate do not generate a sufficient amount of additional capital.

Motorsport Games Inc. and Subsidiaries
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

Even if the Company does secure additional financing, if the anticipated level of revenues are not achieved because of, for example, less than anticipated consumer acceptance of the Company’s offering of products and events; less than effective marketing and promotion campaigns, decreased consumer spending in response to weak economic conditions or weakness in the overall electronic games category; adverse changes in foreign currency exchange rates; decreased sales of the Company’s products and events as a result of increased competitive activities by the Company’s competitors; changes in consumer purchasing habits, such as the impact of higher energy prices on consumer purchasing behavior; retailer inventory management or reductions in retailer display space; less than anticipated results from the Company’s existing or new products or from its advertising and/or marketing plans; or if the Company’s expenses, including, without limitation, for marketing, advertising and promotions, product returns or price protection expenditures, exceed the anticipated level of expenses, the Company’s liquidity position may continue to be insufficient to satisfy its future capital requirements.

 

In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 205-40, Going Concern, the Company has evaluated whether there are conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the condensed consolidated financial statements are issued. The factors described above, in particular the available cash on hand to fund operations over the next year, have raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. Accordingly, the condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a basis that assumes the Company will continue as a going concern and which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the ordinary course of business.

 

NOTE 2 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In management’s opinion, such statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring items) which are considered necessary for a fair statement of the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2023 and for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The Company’s results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year ending December 31, 2023 or any other period. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and related disclosures as of December 31, 2022 and 2021 and for the years then ended which are included in the 2022 Form 10-K.

 

Effective on November 10, 2022, the Company amended its certificate of incorporation to effectuate a reverse split of the issued and outstanding shares of Class A common stock and Class B common stock at a ratio of 1-for-10. Fractional shares of common stock resulting from the reverse stock split were settled in cash. Shares underlying outstanding equity-based awards were proportionately decreased and the respective per share exercise prices, if applicable, were proportionately increased in accordance with the terms of the agreements governing such securities. All shares of common stock, equity-based awards, and per share information presented in the condensed consolidated financial statements have been adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split on a retroactive basis for all periods presented.

 

The Company has revised the presentation of accounts payable and other non-current liabilities in the statement of cash flow as of March 31, 2022, to correct an immaterial error in the presentation of those statement of cash flow line items. 

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. 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 revenue and expenses during the reporting period.

Motorsport Games Inc. and Subsidiaries

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

The Company’s significant estimates used in these consolidated financial statements include, but are not limited to, revenue recognition criteria, including allowances for returns and price protection, as well as current expected credit losses, valuation allowance of deferred income taxes, valuation of acquired companies and equity method investments, the recognition and disclosure of contingent liabilities, goodwill and intangible assets impairment testing, and stock-based compensation valuation. Certain of the Company’s estimates could be affected by external conditions, including those unique to the Company and general economic conditions. It is reasonably possible that these external factors could have an effect on the Company’s estimates and may cause actual results to differ from those estimates.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

As an emerging growth company (“EGC”), the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (“JOBS Act”) allows the Company to delay adoption of new or revised accounting pronouncements applicable to public companies until such pronouncements are applicable to private companies. The Company has elected to use this extended transition period under the JOBS Act until such time as the Company is no longer considered to be an EGC. The adoption dates discussed below reflect this election.

 

Adoption of Accounting Pronouncements

 

On January 1, 2023, the Company adopted ASU 2019-11, “Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses” (“ASU 2019-11”), issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) in November 2019. ASU 2019-11 is an accounting pronouncement that amends ASU 2016-13, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instrument”, issued by the FASB in June 2016. ASU 2016-13, as amended by ASU 2019-11, requires an impairment model (known as the current expected credit loss (“CECL”) model) that is based on expected losses rather than incurred losses. Under the new guidance, each reporting entity should estimate an allowance for expected credit losses, which is intended to result in more timely recognition of losses. This model replaces multiple existing impairment models in current U.S. GAAP, which generally require a loss to be incurred before it is recognized. The new standard applies to trade receivables arising from revenue transactions such as contract assets and accounts receivable. Under ASC 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (“ASC 606”) revenue is recognized when, among other criteria, it is probable that an entity will collect the consideration it is entitled to when goods or services are transferred to a customer. When trade receivables are recorded, they become subject to the CECL model and estimates of expected credit losses on trade receivables over their contractual life will be required to be recorded at inception based on historical information, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. This guidance is effective for smaller reporting companies with annual periods beginning after December 15, 2022, including the interim periods in the year. Early adoption is permitted. All entities may adopt the amendments through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective (that is, a modified-retrospective approach). Upon adoption, this guidance did not have a material impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

On January 1, 2023, the Company adopted ASU 2020-06, “Debt – Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40) – Accounting for Convertible instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity” (“ASU 2020-06”), issued by the FASB in August 2020. The amendments affect entities that issue convertible instruments, as well as contracts in an entity’s own equity. For convertible instruments, the instruments primarily affected are those issued with beneficial conversion features or cash conversion features because the accounting models for those specific features are removed. However, all entities that issue convertible instruments are affected by the amendments to the disclosure requirements in ASU 202-06. These amendments improve US GAAP by eliminating certain accounting models, therefore, simplifying the accounting for convertible instruments, and reducing complexity for preparers and practitioners, as well as improving the decision usefulness and relevance of the information provided to financial statement users. In addition to eliminating certain accounting models, these amendments enhance information transparency by making targeted improvements to the disclosures for convertible instruments and earnings-per-share guidance. For contracts in an entity’s own equity, the contracts primarily affected are freestanding instruments and embedded features that are accounted for as derivatives under the current guidance because of failure to meet the settlement conditions of the derivatives scope exception related to certain requirements of the settlement assessment. ASU 2020-06 simplifies the settlement assessment by removing the requirements (1) to consider whether the contract would be settled in registered shares, (2) to consider whether collateral is required to be posted, and (3) to assess shareholder rights. These amendments also affect the assessment of whether an embedded conversion feature in a convertible instrument qualifies for the derivatives scope exception. These amendments improve US GAAP by simplifying the guidance for the derivatives scope exception for contracts in an entity’s own equity to reduce form-over-substance-based accounting conclusions and improving inconsistency in the accounting for some contracts as derivatives while accounting for economically similar contracts as equity. Additionally, the amendments in ASU 2020-06 affect the diluted EPS calculation for instruments that may be settled in cash or shares and for convertible instruments. This guidance is effective for smaller reporting companies with annual periods beginning after December 15, 2023, including the interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. All entities may adopt the amendments through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective (that is, a modified-retrospective approach). Entities may also elect to adopt the amendments using the fully retrospective method of transition, with the cumulative effect of the change recognized as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the first comparative period presented. Upon adoption, this guidance did not have a material impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Significant Accounting Policies

 

There have been no material changes to the significant accounting policies disclosed in the audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2022, as included in the 2022 Form 10-K, except as disclosed in this note.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company accounts for its assets and liabilities using a hierarchy of valuation techniques based on whether the inputs to those valuation techniques are observable or unobservable. Observable inputs reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs reflect the Company’s market assumptions. These two types of inputs have created the fair-value hierarchy below. This hierarchy requires the Company to minimize the use of unobservable inputs and to use observable market data, if available, when determining fair value.

 

  Level 1 – Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets;
  Level 2 – Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets; and
  Level 3 – Valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.

 

The Company’s liability-classified warrants are measured at fair value on a recurring basis, with subsequent changes in fair value recognized in earnings. Certain assets, including long-lived assets, right of use assets, goodwill, indefinite-lived intangible assets, and purchase commitments are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis; that is, the assets are not measured at fair value on an ongoing basis, but are subject to fair value adjustments using fair value measurements with unobservable inputs are classified as Level 3. Other financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, prepaid and other assets, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and other current liabilities are carried at cost, which approximate their fair values due to their short-term nature.

 

Stock Warrants

 

The Company accounts for warrants as either equity-classified or liability-classified instruments based on an assessment of the warrant’s specific terms and applicable authoritative guidance in ASC 480 - Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (“ASC 480”) and ASC 815 - Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815”). The Company’s assessment considers whether the warrants are freestanding financial instruments pursuant to ASC 480, whether they meet the definition of a liability pursuant to ASC 480, and whether the warrants meet all of the requirements for equity classification under ASC 815, including whether the warrants are indexed to the Company’s own common stock and whether the warrant holders could potentially require “net cash settlement” in a circumstance outside of the Company’s control, among other conditions for equity classification. This assessment, which requires the use of professional judgment, is conducted at the time of warrant issuance and as of each subsequent quarterly period-end date while the warrants are outstanding.

Allowances for Returns and Price Protection

 

The Company may permit product returns from, or grant price protection to, its customers under certain conditions. Price protection represents the Company’s practice of providing channel partners with a credit allowance to lower their wholesale price on a particular game unit that they have not resold to customers. The amount of the price protection for permanent markdowns is the difference between the original wholesale price and the new reduced wholesale price. Credits are also given for short-term promotions that temporarily reduce the wholesale price.

 

Allowances for returns and price protection are considered variable consideration under ASC 606. The Company reduces revenue for estimated future returns and price protections that may occur with distributors and retailers (“channel partners”). See Note 2 – Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – Accounts Receivable in the 2022 Form 10-K for additional details.

 

When evaluating the adequacy of allowances for returns and price protection, the Company analyzes the following: historical credit allowances, current sell-through of channel partners’ inventory of the Company’s products, current trends in retail and the video game industry, changes in customer demand, acceptance of products, and other related factors. In addition, the Company monitors the volume of sales to its channel partners and their inventories, as substantial overstocking in the distribution channel could result in higher-than-expected returns or higher price protection in subsequent periods.

 

The Company recognized an expense of approximately $0.3 million and $0.2 million for sales returns and price protections as a reduction of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

 

Deferred Revenue

 

The Company’s deferred revenue, or contract liability, is classified as current and is included within accrued expenses and other current liabilities on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets (Also refer Note 4 – Accrued Expenses and Other Current Liabilities). Revenue collected in advance of the event is recorded as deferred revenue until the event occurs. Development and coding revenues are also recorded as deferred revenue until the Company’s performance obligation is performed.

 

Revenue recognized in the period from amounts included in contract liability at the beginning of the period was approximately $0.3 million and $0.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

 

Net Loss Per Common Share

 

Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common and dilutive common-equivalent shares outstanding during each period. Dilutive common-equivalent shares consist of shares of options and warrants, if not anti-dilutive.

 

The following shares were excluded from the calculation of weighted average dilutive common shares because their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive:

 

   For the Three Months Ended 
   March 31, 
   2023   2022 
Stock options   47,967    96,984 
Warrants   33,574    -

NOTE 3 – INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

Licensing Agreements

 

The Company has license agreements with various entities related to the development of video games and the organization and facilitation of esports events, including BARC (TOCA) Limited (“BARC”) with respect to the British Touring Car Championship (the “BTCC”), and INDYCAR LLC (“INDYCAR”) with respect to the INDYCAR SERIES. As of March 31, 2023, the Company had a remaining liability in connection with these licensing agreements of approximately $0.8 million and $3.3 million, which is included in purchase commitments and other non-current liabilities, respectively, on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

NOTE 5 – RELATED PARTY LOANS

 

On April 1, 2020, the Company entered into a promissory note (the “$12 million Line of Credit”) with the Company’s majority stockholder, Motorsport Network, that provides the Company with a line of credit of up to $10 million at an interest rate of 10% per annum, the availability of which is dependent on Motorsport Network’s available liquidity. On November 23, 2020, the Company and Motorsport Network entered into an amendment to the $12 million Line of Credit, effective in 2020, pursuant to which the availability under the $12 million Line of Credit was increased from $10 million to $12 million, with no changes to the other terms. The $12 million Line of Credit does not have a stated maturity date and is payable upon demand at any time at the sole and absolute discretion of Motorsport Network. The Company may prepay the $12 million Line of Credit in whole or in part at any time or from time to time without penalty or charge. In the event the Company or any of its subsidiaries consummates certain corporate events, including any capital reorganization, consolidation, joint venture, spin off, merger or any other business combination or restructuring of any nature, or if certain events of default occur, the entire principal amount and all accrued and unpaid interest will be accelerated and become payable.

On September 8, 2022, the Company entered into a support agreement with Motorsport Network (the “Support Agreement”) pursuant to which Motorsport Network issued approximately $3 million (the “September 2022 Cash Advance”) to the Company in accordance with the $12 million Line of Credit, the proceeds of which the Company is using for general corporate purposes and working capital. In the Support Agreement, Motorsport Network and the Company terminated the Side Letter Agreement dated September 4, 2020 and agreed that until June 30, 2024, Motorsport Network would not demand repayment of the September 2022 Cash Advance or other advances under the $12 million Line of Credit unless and until such time that any of the following shall occur or exist: (i) the Company enters into a new financing arrangement (whether debt, equity or otherwise) under which the Company is then able to draw or provides the Company with available cash in excess of amounts required in the Company’s reasonable judgment to run its operations in the ordinary course of business; (ii) the Company generates from operations available cash in excess of amounts required in the Company’s reasonable judgment to run its operations in the ordinary course of business; or (iii) the Company’s independent auditors issue an unqualified opinion on its financial statements and the Company’s repayment of the advances, in whole or in part, would not otherwise cause the independent auditor to issue a going concern qualified opinion. Upon the occurrence of any of the foregoing events, the Company shall prepay on such date principal amount of the September 2022 Cash Advance and other advances under the $12 million Line of Credit then outstanding in an amount equal to such available excess cash or, in the case of (iii) above, the amount that would not cause the Company’s independent auditor to issue a going concern qualified opinion, together with interest accrued but unpaid on the unpaid September 2022 Cash Advance and other advances, which repayment obligation shall continue until all such advances under the $12 million Line of Credit are paid in full. The entire aggregate principal amount of the September 2022 Cash Advance and the other advances under the $12 million Line of Credit, together with interest accrued but unpaid thereon, shall also become immediately and automatically due and payable, and the $12 million Line of Credit shall immediately and automatically terminate, in each case without any action required by Motorsport Network, if (i) the Company experience an event of default under any other debt instrument, agreement or arrangement; or (ii) any final judgment or final judgments for the payment of money in excess (net of amounts covered by third-party insurance with insurance carriers who have not disclaimed liability with respect to such judgment or judgments) of $500,000 or its foreign currency equivalent is entered against the Company or any subsidiary and is not discharged and either (a) an enforcement proceeding has been commenced by any creditor upon such judgment or decree or (b) there is a period of 60 days following the entry of such judgment or decree during which such judgment or decree is not discharged, waived or the execution thereof stayed and, in the case of (b), such default continues for 60 consecutive days.

 

On January 30, 2023, the Company entered into a debt-for-equity exchange agreement with Motorsport Network, where the Company issued to Motorsport Network 338,983 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock with an approximate fair market value of $1 million, representing a portion of the Company’s outstanding debt (including the principal and unpaid interest) under the $12 million Line of Credit. On February 1, 2023, the Company entered into a second debt-for-equity exchange agreement with Motorsport Network, where the Company issued to Motorsport Network 441,402 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock with an approximate fair market value of $2.9 million, representing the Company’s remaining debt outstanding (including the principal and unpaid interest) under the $12 million Line of Credit. The shares of the Company’s Class A common stock issued to Motorsport Network on January 30, 2023 and February 1, 2023 under the debt-for-equity exchange agreements were issued in consideration for the cancellation of all amounts outstanding under the $12 million Line of Credit.

 

Given the state of the financial markets, the Company continues to assess its exposure to any potential non-performance by Motorsport Network and believes that there is a substantial likelihood that Motorsport Network may not fulfill the Company’s future borrowing requests.

 

As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the balance due to Motorsport Network under the $12 million Line of Credit was $0 and $3,670,000, respectively, as well as unpaid accrued related party interest of $0 and $96,667, respectively.

Registered Direct Offerings and the Wainwright Warrants

 

On February 1, February 2 and February 3, 2023, the Company completed three separate registered direct offerings (the “Offerings”) priced at-market under NASDAQ rules with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC acting as the exclusive placement agent for each transaction (the “Agent”). In connection with the Offerings, the Company paid the Agent a transaction fee equal to 7.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds from each offering, non-accountable expenses and certain other closing fees. In addition, the Company granted warrants to the Agent (or its designees) to purchase shares of the Company’s Class A common stock equal to 6.0% of the aggregate number of shares of Class A common stock placed in each Offering (collectively, the “Wainwright Warrants”). The Offerings are summarized as follows:

 

 SCHEDULE OF REGISTERED DIRECT OFFERINGS AND WAINWRIGHT WARRANTS

   Offering Date  Shares Issued   Gross Proceeds   Net Proceeds   Warrants Issued   Warrant Strike Price   Warrant Term
Registered direct offering 1  February 1, 2023   183,020   $3.9 million   $3.6 million   10,981   $26.75   5 years
Registered direct offering 2  February 2, 2023   144,366   $3.4 million   $3.1 million   8,662   $29.375   5 years
Registered direct offering 3  February 3, 2023   232,188   $4.0 million   $3.7 million    13,931   $21.738   5 years

 

As of March 31, 2023, the Wainwright Warrants were assessed to have a fair value of approximately $0.5 million and deemed to be liability-classified awards, which were recorded within other non-current liabilities on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet.

 

The Company utilized a Black-Scholes Option Pricing Model to determine the fair value of the Wainwright Warrants. The Black-Scholes model requires management to make a number of key assumptions, including expected volatility, expected term, and risk-free interest rate. The risk-free interest rate is estimated using the rate of return on U.S. treasury notes with a life that approximates the expected term. The expected term assumption used in the Black-Scholes model represents the period of time that the Wainwright Warrants are expected to be outstanding and is estimated using the contractual term of the Wainwright Warrants. As of March 31, 2023, the Wainwright Warrants had no intrinsic value.

NOTE 8 – SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION

 

On January 12, 2021, in connection with its initial public offering, Motorsport Games established the Motorsport Games Inc. 2021 Equity Incentive Plan (the “MSGM 2021 Stock Plan”). The MSGM 2021 Stock Plan provides for the grant of options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards, performance share awards and restricted stock unit awards, and initially authorized 100,000 shares of Class A common stock to be available for issuance. As of March 31, 2023, 47,264 shares of Class A common stock were available for issuance under the MSGM 2021 Stock Plan. Shares issued in connection with awards made under the MSGM 2021 Stock Plan are generally issued as new issuances of Class A common stock.

 

In conjunction with the Company’s initial public offering, the Company granted an aggregate of 33,063 shares of Class A common, with an aggregate grant date fair value of $661,266. These shares were primarily awarded to a third-party consultant, with a portion allocated to the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer and three of its former directors. The grant date fair value of these shares was recognized as stock-based compensation expense on the date of grant as the awards were fully vested on such date.

 

The majority of the options issued under the MSGM 2021 Stock Plan have time-based vesting schedules, typically vesting ratably over a three-year period. Certain stock option awards differed from this vesting schedule, notably awards made to the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer in conjunction with the Company’s initial public offering that vested immediately, as well as those made to the Company’s former directors that vested on the one-year anniversary of award issuance. All stock options issued under the MSGM 2021 Stock Plan expire 10 years from the grant date.

NOTE 9 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Litigation

 

The Company is involved in various routine legal proceedings incidental to the ordinary course of its business. The Company believes that the outcome of all pending legal proceedings in the aggregate is not reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, prospects, results of operations, financial condition and/or cash flows, except as otherwise disclosed below. In light of the uncertainties involved in legal proceedings generally, the ultimate outcome of a particular matter could be material to the Company’s operating results for a particular period depending on, among other things, the size of the loss or the nature of the liability imposed and the level of the Company’s income for that particular period. Litigation or other legal proceedings, with or without merit, is unpredictable and generally expensive and time consuming and, even if resolved in our favor, is likely to divert significant resources from our core business, including distracting our management personnel from their normal responsibilities.

 

Certain conditions may exist as of the date the condensed consolidated financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company, but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. The Company assesses such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company, or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or unasserted claims, as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought therein.

 

If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, then the estimated liability would be accrued in the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potential material loss contingency is not probable, but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability and an estimate of the range of possible losses, if determinable and material, would be disclosed.

 

Loss contingencies considered remote are generally not disclosed, unless they involve guarantees, in which case the guarantees would be disclosed. There can be no assurance that such matters will not materially and adversely affect the Company’s business, financial position, and results of operations or cash flows.

On February 11, 2021, HC2 Holdings 2 Inc. (now known as Innovate 2) and Continental General Insurance Company, former minority stockholders of 704Games, filed a complaint (the “HC2 and Continental Complaint”) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware against the Company, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Executive Chairman, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, and the manager of Motorsport Network. The complaint was later amended and added Leo Capital Holdings LLC as an additional plaintiff and the controller of Motorsport Network as an additional individual defendant. The complaint alleges, among other things, purported misrepresentations and omissions concerning 704Games’ financial condition made in connection with the Company’s purchase of these minority shareholders’ interest in 704Games in August and October 2021. The complaint asserts claims under Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 thereunder; Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act; Section 20A of the Exchange Act; breach of the Company’s obligations under the Stockholders’ Agreement dated August 14, 2018; fraudulent inducement; breach of fiduciary duties; and unjust enrichment. The plaintiffs seek, among other things, damages from the defendants, jointly and severally, based on the alleged difference between the fair market value of the shares of common stock of 704Games on the date of plaintiffs’ sale and the purchase price that was paid, as well as punitive damages and other relief. In May 2021, the Company, along with the other defendants, filed a motion to dismiss the plaintiffs’ complaint. On March 28, 2022, the court entered an order denying the motion to dismiss.

 

On January 11, 2023, in connection with the HC2 and Continental Complaint, the Company, along with other defendants, entered into a settlement agreement with one of the plaintiffs, Continental, to settle the claims made by Continental against the defendants and the claims made by the defendants against Continental. Under the terms of the settlement agreement, the Company is obligated to pay the sum of $1.1 million to Continental. The Company paid an initial payment of approximately $0.1 million on January 17, 2023, and is obligated to make payments of no less than approximately $40,000 every 30 days after the initial payment date until the settlement amount of $
