NOTE 7 - DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
As discussed in Note 6, the Company recognized a loss on the extinguishment of the Convertible Notes based on the fair values of the New Notes including the conversion feature, New Warrants, Exchange Notes and conversion feature and Exchange Warrants. The Company determined that there was a derivative liability associated with the conversion features in the New Notes and Exchange Notes due to the variable conversion price subject to stockholder approval in the conversion feature. Therefore, the Company has separated conversion features from the New Notes and Exchange Notes and has recorded them at fair value and will continue to adjust them to fair value until the conversion price is fixed. The Company has also determined that the New Warrants and Exchange Warrants are derivative liabilities due to the potential adjustment in the exercise prices. The Company has accounted for the New Warrants and Exchange Warrants as liabilities at fair value and will continue to adjust them to fair value until the exercise prices are fixed.
The fair value of the conversion features and warrant liabilities were calculated using a Monte Carlo simulation and the following assumptions and methodologies:
In addition to the above factors, the Company also used a probability assessment for the initial and June 30, 2023 valuation to evaluate whether stockholder approval would be received to lower the conversion and exercise prices. The Company utilized a 50/50 assessment that stockholders would or would not approve the lower conversion and exercise price. Management notes that at the time of the assessment, the stockholder vote had not yet started therefore there was no data to determine whether one scenario was more likely than another. Since the stockholders approve the lower conversion and exercise price on August 3, 2023, no probability assessment was used.
Based on the above factors, the estimated fair value of the Company’s financial derivative liabilities carried at fair value at May 24, 2023 and August 2, 2023 as follows:
On August 3, 2023, shareholders approved the adjustment of the conversion price of the New Notes and Exchange Notes and the exercise price of the New Warrants and Exchange Warrants. The conversion and exercise prices can adjust to a floor of $0.22 per share based on certain events defined in the agreements related to these instruments. The Company has concluded that as of August 3, 2023, the conversion feature of the May 2023 Notes and the May 2023 Warrants are no longer derivative liabilities. The Company recognized a (loss) gain of $(690,290) and 2,333,417 for the change in the fair values of the conversion features of the May 2023 Notes for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, respectively.
The Company has calculated the fair value of May 2023 Warrants at August 3, 2023, and recognized a gain of $5,296 and $2,774,377 in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023. The total gain recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 for the May 2023 Notes conversion features and May 2023 Warrants is $5,107,794.
