The Company is authorized to issue up to 200,000,000 shares of common stock at par value of $0.001 per share.


Issuance of Common Stock and Warrants from Initial Public Offering


During July 2021, due to its initial public offering, the Company issued 5,000,000 shares of common stock and 4,000,000 warrants to investors in exchange for cash at $5.00 per unit, consisting of $4.99 per share of common stock and $.0125 per four fifths of a warrant. The warrants have a 5-year term and an exercise price of $6.00 per warrant. The underwriters exercised their option to purchase an additional 600,000 warrants, and the Company received $7,500 in proceeds.


As a result of the initial public offering, the Company’s outstanding convertible notes and unpaid accrued interest were converted into 736,773 shares of common stock. Additionally, in accordance with the original terms of the warrant agreements convertible noteholders were granted a total of 184,193 common stock warrants with a 5-year term and with an exercise price of $6.00 per warrant.
