Schedule 3(e) Changes
Since June 30, 2020, Company has continued to incur losses and suffered negative cash flow, such that at the date hereof the Company has little cash available. As a result the Company has and taken a number of steps to reduce its cash expenses including deferring the salaries of senior executives, it has terminated, furloughed, or reduced the working hours of a number of employees, terminated or reduced the services of third-party engineers and reduced other non-essential expenses and services. The Company will need to raise additional funding in order to continue operations through 2020 and 2021.
A novel strain of coronavirus (“Covid-19”) emerged globally in December 2019 and has been declared a pandemic. The extent to which Covid-19 will impact our customers, business, results and financial condition will depend on current and future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted at this time. The Company’s day-to-day operations beginning March 2020 have been impacted differently depending on geographic location and services that are being performed. The Cards Plus business located in South Africa has did not have any operations in April and part of May 2020 as the Company followed the guidance and requirements of the South African government. Our operations in the United States and Colombia have suffered less immediate impact as most staff can work remotely and can continue to develop our product offerings. That said we have seen our business opportunities develop more slowly as business partners and potential customers are dealing with Covid-19 issues, working remotely and these issues are causing delays in decision making and finalization of negotiations and agreements.
