Our Business


References in this document to the “Company,” “Verb,” “we,” “us,” or “our” are intended to mean Verb Technology Company, Inc., individually, or as the context requires, collectively with its subsidiaries on a consolidated basis.


On October 18, 2021, the Company established verbMarketplace, LLC dba MARKET.live, a Nevada limited liability company. verbMarketplace LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company established for the MARKET.live platform.


Through June 13, 2023, the Company was a Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) applications platform developer that offered a SaaS platform for the direct sales industry comprised of a suite of interactive video-based sales enablement business software products marketed on a subscription basis, (the “SaaS Assets”).


On June 13, 2023, the Company disposed of all of its operating SaaS Assets pursuant to an asset purchase agreement in consideration of the sum of $6,500, $4,750 of which was paid in cash by the buyer at the closing of the transaction. Additional payments of $1,750 will be paid by the buyer if certain profitability and revenue targets are met within the next two years as set forth more particularly in the asset purchase agreement. The sale of the SaaS Assets was undertaken to allow the Company to focus its resources on MARKET.live, the Company’s multi-vendor, multi-presenter, livestream social shopping platform, that combines ecommerce and entertainment. The Company expects that its burgeoning MARKET.live business unit will, over time, create greater shareholder value than could have been created through the continued operation of its SaaS Assets.


The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business.


As of March 31, 2024, the Company had cash of $14,182.

Economic Disruption


Our business is dependent in part on general economic conditions. Many jurisdictions in which our customers are located and our products are sold have experienced and could continue to experience unfavorable general economic conditions, such as inflation, increased interest rates and recessionary concerns, which could negatively affect demand for our products. Under difficult economic conditions, customers may seek to cease spending on our current products or fail to adopt our new products, which could negatively affect our financial performance. We cannot predict the timing or magnitude of an economic slowdown or the timing or strength of any economic recovery. These and other economic factors could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, and results of operations.
