Description of Business





Cutaia Media Group, LLC (“CMG”) was organized as a limited liability company under the laws of the State of Nevada on December 12, 2012. On May 19, 2014, CMG merged into bBooth, Inc. and bBooth, Inc., thereafter, changed its name to bBooth (USA), Inc., effective as of October 16, 2014. The operations of CMG and bBooth (USA), Inc., became known as, and are referred to in this Annual Report as, “bBoothUSA.”


On October 16, 2014, bBoothUSA was acquired by Global System Designs, Inc. (“GSD”), pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement entered into with GSD (the “Share Exchange Agreement”). GSD was incorporated in the State of Nevada on November 27, 2012. The acquisition was accounted for as a reverse merger transaction. In connection with the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Share Exchange Agreement, GSD’s management was replaced by bBoothUSA’s management, and GSD changed its name to bBooth, Inc.


Effective April 21, 2017, we changed our corporate name from bBooth, Inc. to nFüsz, Inc. The name change was effected through a parent/subsidiary short-form merger of nFüsz, Inc., our wholly-owned Nevada subsidiary, formed solely for the purpose of the name change, with and into us.


Effective February 1, 2019, we changed our corporate name from nFüsz, Inc. to Verb Technology Company, Inc. The name change was effected through a parent/subsidiary short-form merger of Verb Technology Company, Inc., our wholly-owned Nevada subsidiary, formed solely for the purpose of the name change, with and into us.


On February 1, 2019, we implemented a 1-for-15 reverse stock split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of our common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”). The Reverse Stock Split became effective upon commencement of trading of our Common Stock on February 4, 2019. As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every fifteen (15) shares of our pre-Reverse Stock Split Common Stock were combined and reclassified into one share of our Common Stock. The number of shares of Common Stock subject to outstanding options, warrants, and convertible securities were also reduced by a factor of fifteen as of February 1, 2019. All historical share and per-share amounts reflected throughout our consolidated financial statements and other financial information in this Annual Report have been adjusted to reflect the Reverse Stock Split. The par value per share of our Common Stock was not affected by the Reverse Stock Split.


On April 12, 2019, we acquired Sound Concepts Inc. (“Sound Concepts”) pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) entered into on November 8, 2018, by and among Sound Concepts, NF Merger Sub, Inc., a Utah corporation (“Merger Sub 1”), NF Acquisition Company, LLC, a Utah limited liability company (“Merger Sub 2”), the shareholders of Sound Concepts (the “Shareholders”), the Shareholders’ representative, and us. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, we acquired Sound Concepts through a two-step merger, consisting of merging Merger Sub 1 with and into Sound Concepts, with Sound Concepts surviving the “first step” of the merger as our wholly-owned subsidiary (and the separate corporate existence of Merger Sub 1 ceased) and, immediately thereafter, merging Sound Concepts with and into Merger Sub 2, with Merger Sub 2 surviving the “second step” of the merger, such that, upon the conclusion of the “second step” of the merger, the separate corporate existence of Sound Concepts ceased and Merger Sub 2 continued its limited liability company existence under Utah law as the surviving entity and as our wholly-owned subsidiary under the name “Verb Direct, LLC.” (“Verb Direct”). On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the closing, each share of Sound Concepts’ capital stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time (the “Sound Concepts Capital Stock”), was cancelled and converted into the right to receive a proportionate share of (i) a cash payment by us of an aggregate of $15,000,000 (the “Acquisition Cash Payment”), and (ii) 3,327,791 restricted shares of our Common Stock. The Acquisition Cash Payment was paid using a portion of the net proceeds we received as a result of our public offering that closed on April 9, 2019. The fair market value of the 3,327,791 restricted shares on April 12, 2019 was $7,820,000.


Nature of Business


We are a Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) applications platform developer. Our platform is comprised of a suite of sales enablement business software products marketed on a subscription basis. Our applications, available in both mobile and desktop versions, are offered as a fully integrated suite, as well as on a standalone basis, and include verbCRM, our Customer Relationship Management application; verbLEARN, our Learning Management System application, and verbLIVE, our Live Broadcast Video Webinar application.


We also provided certain non-digital services to some of our enterprise clients such as printing and fulfillment services. We designed and printed welcome kits and starter kits for their marketing needs and provided fulfillment services, which consisted of managing the preparation, handling and shipping of our client’s custom-branded merchandise they use for marketing purposes at conferences and other events, and product sample packs that verbCRM users order through the app for automated delivery and tracking to their customers and prospects.


Going Concern


The accompanying 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 reflected in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, during the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company incurred a net loss of $15,918,000 and used cash in operations of $8,118,000. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date of the financial statements being issued. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company’s ability to raise additional funds and implement its business plan. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.


Our continuation as a going concern is dependent on our ability to obtain additional financing until we can generate sufficient cash flows from operations to meet our obligations. We intend to continue to seek additional debt or equity financing to continue our operations. There is no assurance that we will ever be profitable or that debt or equity financing will be available to us. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result should we be unable to continue as a going concern.
