Corporate Information

 

The Marquie Group, Inc. is an emerging direct-to-consumer firm specializing in marketing, product development, and media, including a dynamic radio and digital network. We craft and promote top-tier health and beauty solutions that enrich lives, showcased through engaging radio content for our audience.

 

We have three operating segments: (1) Broadcast, (2) Digital Media, and (3) Health and Beauty, which also qualify as reportable segments. Our operating segments reflect how we assess the performance of each operating segment and determine the appropriate allocations of resources to each segment. We continually review our operating segment classifications to align with operational changes in our business and may make changes as necessary.

 

We measure and evaluate our operating segments based on operating income and operating expenses that do not include allocations of costs related to corporate functions, such as accounting and finance, human resources, legal, tax and treasury, which are reported as unallocated corporate expenses in our consolidated statements of operations included in this annual report. We also exclude costs such as amortization, depreciation, taxes, and interest expense when evaluating the performance of our operating segments.

 

Our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) are available free of charge under the Investor Relations section of our website at www.themarquiegroup.com as soon as reasonably practical after electronically filed. Any information found on our website is not a part of or incorporated by reference into this annual report or any other report of TMGI filed with or furnished to the SEC.

 

Business Strategy

 

Covid-19 had a devastating impact on our company starting in 2020. We lost all advertising revenue, we lost several on-air personalities to illness, and our production facilities were shut down. We returned to the drawing board to create a new marketing plan for success, which took a couple years to implement. It was a big undertaking – reinvent the business by adding tangible goods and services to improve the company’s current revenue stream associated with radio advertising while at the same time, create a new stand-alone profitable enterprise. Implementing this new plan required recapitalizing the company to attract a business in-line with our model. We entered into an agreement with a new investor, paid-off most of our old debt, and found an S-1 investor. This giant pivot led to our first acquisition with Simply Whim and their Whim® line of products. The company is now heading in the right direction with this new philosophy.

 

We are fundamentally committed to providing products which use only safe and efficacious ingredients for health of the entire person at the cellular level, with emphasis on anti-aging and cancer prevention, using only products manufactured in the United States while adhering to strict global standards. Our commitment to these values means that we may choose not to switch to other products or ingredients or pursue potentially more profitable opportunities. We advertise these products across our broadcast network including local radio stations, streaming over the internet, downloadable podcast style programs, and social media.

 

The Marquie Group

 

The Marquie Group manages corporate governance of its wholly owned subsidiaries, secures financing for operations, seeks-out products and companies for acquisition and implements the marketing plan of the company to increase profitability. To meet these objectives, TMGI recently acquired a 25% stake in Simply Whim, Inc., which encompasses the Whim Inner and Outer Nutrition line of health and beauty products.

By utilizing our wholly owned subsidiary, Music of Your Life® - a renowned radio brand and syndicated broadcast network - we advertise both our own products, and those of other businesses using 60-second radio commercials airing every hour on the network and heard around the country on our affiliated radio stations while simulcast over the internet. The company's primary objective is to develop or acquire captivating brands that can be successfully advertised on our broadcast radio network, our digital media platform and promoted through our extensive social media network of more than 500,000 followers. Whim products are also sold on our simplywhim.com website, our Public Square webstore, and our new Amazon webstore.

 

Music of Your Life®

 

Music of Your Life produces and delivers radio programming to affiliated AM, FM, and HD radio stations across the country and around the world over the internet. Since our launch in 1978, Music of Your Life has been broadcasting more than 400,000 hours making it the longest running non-stop radio program in the world. Terrestrial radio stations from around the country carry Music of Your Life programming on an advertising barter arrangement whereby Music of Your Life owns three minutes per hour for network commercials which are aired by the station in that city. This gives us direct access to our listeners at a local level to advertise our goods and services. The same Music of Your Life broadcast heard on local radio, is also simulcast over the internet, and heard around the world to more than 90-countries. We own 12 minutes of advertising time over the internet allowing us to reach our listeners on a national level. Music of Your Life is an automated delivery of “live” recordings. Several moving parts must come together seamlessly to deliver smooth sounding broadcast free of technical issues, including compelling programming delivered by announcers. Once the show leaves the studio, significant layers of technology are employed right up the point the sound is heard by the listener on either their car radio, portable radio, cell phone, computer, or intelligent television.

 

Our Music of Your Life song catalogue is compiled of more than 100,000 titles. Many of these songs include difficult to find older recordings that originated on long play records (LP’s) which date back to the turn of the 20th century. We also have our entire catalogue on several hundred reel-to-reel tapes which preserve the high quality of the originals. We have transferred much of this music to a lossless digital format known as the Waveform Audio File Format (WAV). These WAV files are of a very large size and take up tremendous hard drive space, therefore, we have converted our entire catalogue to the MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 format (MP3). Advancing software and hardware technology in the music space has reached a pinnacle with a recent lossless format called FLAC, or Free Lossless Audio Codec. This technology offers amazing CD or WAV quality specifications in a small file size. An effort is underway to convert the entire Music of Your Life catalogue from the original source material to the FLAC format offering our listeners a much-improved experience which cannot be found on any free streaming service today.

 

Looking ahead, we have an ambitious sales forecast for the growth of Music of Your Life, positioning it as the definitive podcast destination for the Great American Songbook, spanning iconic hits from the 1920s to the early 21st century. Leveraging cutting-edge audio reproduction and broadcasting technology, we aim to offer an unparalleled listening experience that outshines any of our competitors' offerings, regardless of price point.

 

To further enrich our network's entertainment offerings, we'll be launching an extended version of our already popular Celebrity Radio® podcast. This revamped edition will not only include high-quality audio but will also feature added video content, attracting a diverse array of guests from the music industry, radio, film, television, and social media. Sales projections indicate a considerable uptick in engagement and sponsorship opportunities as a result.

 

Additionally, we plan to extend our Street Talk® feature into the podcasting space, with episodes slated to feature timely conversations with influential personalities and industry leaders who shape the financial markets. We anticipate that this diversification will contribute significantly to our revenue streams in the coming years.

 

·Affiliates. We have affiliate radio station affiliates located in: New York City, NY; Los Angeles, CA; Tampa Bay, FL; Clearwater, FL; San Francisco, CA; Kansas City, KS; St. Louis, MO; and Celina, OH.

·Simulcast. Our daily broadcast show simulcast is delivered over the internet to more than 90-countries.
·Programming. We arrange our music programming into various “dayparts” including “Adult Standards”, “Decades of Hits”, “50’s at 5”, “60’s at 6”, “70’s at 7”, and Juke Box Saturday Night.

·Streaming Technology. We use the Digital Ocean node system for backhauling our packet data directly from our broadcast automation system to Reflector. This provides a 99.99% uptime environment with very little packet loss, and low latency resulting in very high-quality audio throughput. We stream at a bitrate of 320 kbs.
·Internet Technology. We use high-speed fiber optic internet from Frontier Cable Business for a 99.99% uptime internet connection.
·Computer and Automation Technology. We use a computer system running Windows 11 with Station Playlist Studio Radio Automation System. We employ a full, redundant backup system for system failures.
·Podcast Shows. We produce three podcasts: Celebrity Radio – featuring interviews with some of Hollywood’s legacy entertainers; Collusion Radio – a politically charged conversation about the current state of affairs of our country; and Street Talk – financial conversations about the dealings of Wall Street.
·Music. We have a catalogue of more than 100,000 songs from the early 1900’s to present day. Most of our music has been ripped from original sources such as long play records (LP’s) or compact disks (CD’s.) to WAV, AIFF and MP3 files. Because of improving internet broadcast technology, we have started the process of converting our original music files to the FLAC lossless codec for an unbeatable sound quality.

 

Simply Whim

 

Whim® is a rising beauty brand committed to delivering high-quality, safe, and effective beauty products, formulated through a fusion of Nature, Nutrition, and Science. Established to fill the gap in an industry lacking adequate standards and regulations, Whim® is a response to a pressing need for safer, more transparent options in the beauty sector. Our founder, a 3-time cancer survivor who is currently undergoing treatment for her latest diagnosis, leverages her decades-long experience in the industry to create products that meet a higher standard. She is acutely aware that U.S. regulations for beauty products lag far behind those of many other countries, allowing the use of ingredients that are considered toxic, carcinogenic, and hormone-disrupting elsewhere. Proudly made and sold exclusively in the USA, Whim® is set to redefine beauty norms by offering conscientious choices for consumers.

 

As we look ahead, we are optimistic about our sales prospects. Our sales forecast for the next year anticipates a robust growth, reflecting the increasing consumer demand for safer, high-quality beauty solutions. We are committed to not just meeting but exceeding these expectations as we continue to innovate and expand our product range.

VitaWhims™

 

We are currently in the process of developing VitaWhims™, a new line of sugar-free vitamin gummies, designed as a part of our Whim® Inner Nutrition health and beauty collection. This forthcoming addition is intended to replace our existing Whim® sleep aid, Hush, and our beauty supplement, Harmony. Meticulously crafted without sugar, corn syrup, dyes, or any unhealthy fillers, our gummies are designed to cater to a specific need. Recently, the nutritional gummy sector in the United States has witnessed remarkable growth, yet the demand for sugar-free options remains largely unfulfilled. VitaWhims™ is tactically positioned to bridge this gap with a mid-2024 launch. We anticipate the introduction of VitaWhims™ will substantially boost our revenue, capitalizing on the burgeoning demand for health-conscious, sugar-free options in the nutritional supplement market.

 

AminoMints®

 

Our recent collaboration with AminoMints, Inc. signifies our foray into the cancer prevention market, leveraging evidence-based supplements and ingredients bolstered by clinical trials, medical research, and substantiated outcomes. AminoMints, scheduled for launch in mid-2024, are concocted with a special mix of essential amino acids, proven to confer numerous health advantages such as augmented muscle development, bettered cognitive function, and a strengthened immune system. Importantly, these amino acids have demonstrated considerable promise in inhibiting cancer cell proliferation and boosting the effectiveness of standard cancer therapies. While AminoMints are not designed to supplant medical interventions, they serve as a handy and scientifically endorsed supplementary alternative for those seeking to maximize their overall wellness and bolster their body's innate cancer-fighting capabilities. With AminoMints, we deliver an innovative solution, underpinned by science, directly to your pocket. Looking ahead, our sales forecast for next year reflects an optimistic outlook, given the groundbreaking nature of this product and the increasing demand for supplementary options in cancer prevention. We anticipate a strong market response and robust sales growth following the product launch, as we contribute to the global effort to combat cancer.

 

Our History

 

Our company was incorporated on January 30, 2008, in the State of Florida, as Maximum Consulting, Inc. and shortly thereafter changed its name to ZhongSen International Tea Company, with the principal business objective of providing sales and marketing consulting services to small to medium sized Chinese tea producing companies. On May 31, 2013, our Company entered into an acquisition agreement (the “Acquisition”) with Music of Your Life, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“MOYL Nevada”). As a result of the Acquisition, MOYL Nevada became a wholly owned subsidiary of our Company. We changed our name to Music of Your Life, Inc. effective July 26, 2013. On August 16, 2018, we merged into The Marquie Group, Inc., changed our name and adopted the ticker symbol “TMGI”. (see below).

 

Covid Pandemic of 2020

 

The Marquie Group was deeply affected by the outbreak of Covid beginning in 2020. Just as we executed our new plan for growth under the recent name change and restructure, our subsidiary Music of Your Life, lost its revenue due to the shutdown of its advertising agency, Marketing Architects. Both of our senior announcers, who had been on the air for decades with top nationwide ratings, contracted the disease and could not return to work, one has since passed. Our remote announcers lost access to their recording studios. The new partnership with Simply Whim faltered as the company could not fill orders or build inventory due to the loss of all supply chain elements. The owner of Simply Whim suffered a heart attack and subsequently diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer in mid-2020. She began the long, difficult journey of surgeries and chemotherapy which continues to this day. The decision was made to push-on and implement a short-term emergency plan for the company which included airing previously recorded programming for Music of Your Life, and source alternate packaging locally for the Whim products. The net result for the following two and a half years was a complete loss of revenue, adding convertible debt for operations, and another capital restructure.

 

The 25% acquisition of Simply Whim was implemented for us to have more control of the company, access capital markets, and move the Whim products to market more expeditiously. The new plan is working, and we have emerged in 2023 with new life. Supply chains have reopened, wholesale goods are no longer backordered, and customer orders are being filled. Whim products are currently advertised on the Music of Your Life radio network, our new Public Square store is launching in September 2023 with our new Amazon Marketplace store to follow in October. We have engaged the services of the well-known social media influencers, The Gemini Group for a September social media campaign launch and have engaged the services of the Amazon Marketplace media team at Social Influence for an October launch.

Music of Your Life

 

The Early Years

 

The Music of Your Life’s legacy in the radio and music industry began with its launch on January 1, 1978, by Al Ham, a renowned CBS Records executive and jingle writer. This event, which took place on WDJZ radio station in Bridgeport, Connecticut, marked the beginning of the world's longest running syndicated music radio network. Over time, the music programming evolved from its traditional Adult Standards music format to include hits from the 60’s, 70’s, and contemporary genres such as pop, rock & roll, country, and jazz segmented into various dayparts.

 

Record Breaking Longevity

 

Since its inception, Music of Your Life has aired over 400,000 hours of continuous radio programming, servicing more than 250 AM, FM, and HD radio stations in the U.S. The global reach of the network expanded over the past 10 years, reaching 90 countries through online streaming from our website and a host of third-party service providers. A Guinness Book of World Records application was filed in mid 2023 for a listing as the Longest Continuous Broadcast of a Radio Network.

 

Intellectual Property

 

In 1984, the network's theme song, originally sung by the legendary Tony Bennett, received recognition from the US Patent and Trademark Office, becoming one of the first sound recordings to be trademarked. Also in 1984, our partnership with CBS Records also led to the production of numerous Music of Your Life record albums and cassette tapes featuring top recording artists. In 2010, Music of Your Life, Inc. acquired the Music of Your Life trademarks for $250,000.

 

One-of-a-Kind Programming

 

One unique feature developed by the founder was having recorded messages by the stars whose songs were being played. Known as “The Stars Who Play the Stars”, a phrase coined by the legendary announcer, Gary Owens. These recorded messages, known as “liners”, can still be heard today, featuring voices from celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Barry Manilow, Danny DeVito, Kim Bassinger, among others.

 

Streaming Accessibility

 

Our network is accessible across nearly every streaming platform including Apple's iTunes, Tune-In, Shoutcast, Roku, YouTube, as well as on iPhones, iPads, Apple TV, CarPlay, and Android devices. We have an estimated audience of approximately 100,000 unique listeners per month across all platforms.

 

Celebrity Announcers

 

Our "Stars who Play the Stars" on-air lineup has featured various past and present celebrity DJs, enhancing our audience appeal, including shows hosted by 1950’s crooner Pat Boone, Peter Marshall from Hollywood Squares, Laugh-In’s Gary Owens, singer Patty Page, game show superstar Wink Martindale, big band leader Les Brown, Jr., Steve Torme, son of Mel, radio legends Johnny Magnus and Chuck Southcott.

Record Breaking Listener Trends

 

Over the years, the network gained significant traction, with more than 250 stations adopting Music of Your Life's format. Al Ham's innovative "matched-flow sequencing" for song arrangement contributed significantly to our audience retention, keeping listeners tuned in for up to 15 hours a day, 5-times the national average.

 

Satellite Radio and Cutting-Edge Technology

 

In 1996, we relaunched as a satellite-delivered service, enhancing our competitive edge against similar offerings from rivals like Westwood One and ABC Radio Networks. By harnessing technological advances, we transitioned from satellite to the Barix internet distribution system, achieving noticeable improvements in audio quality and a significant cost savings. Changes in FCC rules also allowed for simultaneous broadcasting on FM frequencies, further expanding our audience reach. Today, Music of Your Life has a strong presence across multiple AM, FM, HD radio stations, and worldwide online streaming platforms.

 

Live Performances, Cruise Ship Entertainment, TV Shows, Time Life Box Sets, CBS Records and More

 

Alongside our on-air success, our music was also promoted through live performances, featuring iconic big bands and artists, and special events such as the Music of Your Life television special on CBS Television. Our network's influence also extended to product offerings such as Music of Your Life CDs, Time Life-issued multi-CD box sets, and a Music of Your Life television special produced by PBS in 2016. For more than 10 years, Carnival Cruise Lines hosted the Music of Your Life Celebrity Cruise to the Bahamas. Despite the challenges posed by the digital revolution in music and radio advertising, we've continued to adapt and evolve. The Time Life - Music of Your Life collaboration, featuring Debbie Boone and Peter Marshall is one of the most successful boxsets in the iconic brand’s history.

 

Management Reboot and Brand Resilience

 

We've continually adapted our offerings, introducing contemporary artists and swing bands to our programming, thereby ensuring our content remains relevant to our audience. Despite facing challenges in the late 2000’s due to management issues, The Marquie Group took decisive action. In 2010, we underwent a significant restructuring under the leadership of Marc Angell, who revamped operations, improved programming, and revitalized the Music of Your Life brand. We strategized a plan to partner with companies or acquire products that we could market directly to the consumer using our network radio reach, thereby bypassing the traditional ad agency model, and sharing directly in revenue. This strategic shift led to the acquisition of Simply Whim, an emerging health and beauty company dedicated to high quality, safe and efficacious beauty enhancing products marketed under their popular Whim® brand.

 

New Advertising Agency

 

We’ve replaced the ad agency lost to covid with MSH Marketing starting July 2023. MSH specializes in pay-per-call or listener response revenue model. We expect to see revenue from this new opportunity during the 4th quarter 2023.

 

The Marquie Group

 

New Direction

 

Challenged by a spike in music licensing fees and a decline in conventional radio advertising rates, formats, and prospects, we faced hurdles in maintaining a revenue stream with our Music of Your Life syndicated radio service. As a strategy to overcome these challenges, we investigated direct collaborations of products, and or acquisitions of companies with products for marketing with radio advertisements across our radio network. This led to the merger with The Marquie Group, a DTC (direct-to-consumer) sales and marketing company which holds exclusive licensing rights to an array of products, including those crafted by Simply Whim. One prominent offering from Simply Whim is the "Whim" beauty line – a brand focused on providing quality, safety, and effective beauty enhancement products. In 2022, the Company initiated marketing for the Whim products using the Music of Your Life radio network, primarily through a sequence of radio ads.

2023 marks the beginning of our venture into the arena of cancer prevention through safe, effective, and scientifically proven supplements. To implement this plan, we began with a joint venture with AminoMints, Inc. and their AminoMints® brand. We are currently reformulating the AminoMints product to enhance its cancer prevention properties. Reformulated AminoMints contains specific amino acids that have been scientifically proven to inhibit the growth of cancer cells by disrupting their metabolic pathways and starving them of the nutrients they need to proliferate. Generally, Amino acids play a crucial role in the development and maintenance of the immune system. AminoMints® helps to enhance the immune response, enabling the body to fight cancer cells more effectively.

 

In the coming months and years, we plan additional product development, joint ventures, and acquisitions with a revolutionary approach to cancer care, harnessing the power of amino acids to inhibit cancer growth, boost the immune system, enhance recovery, and promote overall well-being.

 

Recapitalization

 

On August 16, 2018, a merger was cemented with The Marquie Group, Inc. (TMGI). The deal saw the issuance of 100,000 of our common stock shares to TMGI’s shareholders. Post-merger, the total common stock shares issued and standing tallied at 102,277. On December 5, 2018, there was an amendment and a redefinition of the Company's Articles of Incorporation. This change transitioned the Company's name from "Music of Your Life, Inc." to "The Marquie Group, Inc." A symbol change with FINRA occurred on February 22, 2018 – moving from "MYLI" to "TMGI." During this time, we funded the company using convertible debt instruments from several lenders.

 

Simply Whim™

 

Entering the Multibillion Dollar Industry of Personal Care

 

The history of Simply Whim and the Whim® Brand begins with its founder, Jacquie Angell, a globally recognized expert in skincare with over two decades in the beauty and wellness industry. Jacquie has introduced products in more than 90 countries around the world, taking advantage of the opportunity to gain extensive knowledge on global product regulations, uses, and trends.

 

Needs Based Solutions

 

Jacquie's journey as a three-time cancer survivor has inspired her mission to create effective, safe, and simple skincare products. Her current experience with chemotherapy fuels her drive further. Her exposure to international regulations revealed to her that the US guidelines are far behind global standards. This realization led to a deeper investigation of ingredients used in the American beauty industry. She found numerous toxic, carcinogenic, and endocrine-disrupting ingredients in products, which posed significant health risks. Jacquie also identified the presence of ineffective but seemingly attractive natural ingredients in many products. Whim® aims to bridge the regulatory gap in the United States by adhering to strict global ingredient regulations rather than just the FDA's list of banned substances.

 

 

 

 11 

 

 

On a Whim

 

Motivated by these findings, Jacquie committed herself to the development of products that enhance health and beauty without compromise. She created the Whim® line to bridge the gap between Inner Health & Outer Nutrition™, firmly believing in the equal importance of what goes into and onto the body. She strives to educate others that Age is Not a Skin Type® and emphasizes the critical influence of lifestyle on skin health and aging. Whim® is dedicated to using only ingredients that either directly contribute to overall health and wellbeing or enhance the integrity and effectiveness of its product formulations. Whim® offers custom-blended products inspired by Nature, Nutrition, and Science to combat aging, stress, and environmental factors while nourishing the body, mind, and soul holistically. Whim® was conceived out of a passionate necessity for higher industry standards and regulations regarding skincare ingredients.

 

Our Strategy

 

Our primary objective is to provide high quality, safe and efficacious health and beauty products comporting with global regulations and guidelines rather than the substandard, often dangerous guidelines set in the United States. We advertise these products on our expanding radio network, Music of Your Life www.musicofyourlife.com, our webstore, simplywhim.com/all-products, and soon on Public Square and Amazon. Our Philosophy - offer people of all ages uniquely crafted products with powerful ingredients derived from Nature, Nutrition & Science to enhance health and beauty. Made in the USA and sold only in the USA.

 

Music of Your Life®

 

Our strategy is centered on building strong consumer relationships across our multiple platforms with national reach. Moreover, we believe that we can leverage our investments in innovative products and compelling intellectual property to better monetize our assets and to capture increasing market share across the broader audience ecosystem. The key elements of this growth strategy are:

 

Broadening the scope of audio engagement

 

1.We are expanding the spectrum of choices for our listeners-both in terms of compelling content and the array of ways in which it can be consumed.
2.We have launched a new effort to attract terrestrial radio station affiliates which will not only increase our listening audience in terms of time Average Quarter Hour (AQH) listening and geographical reach, but also the rates we can charge third party vendors on the network.
3.We are launching new podcast style shows for broadcast on the network with access on the company website and social media platforms utilizing our Collusion Radio® and Celebrity Radio® platforms.
4.We are launching a new short-format, pay-to-play 6-minute newscast using our trademarked “Street Talk®” platform for affiliates to fill-in their local availability. Street Talk® will also launch as a financial podcast, estimated for a fourth quarter 2023 launch. Street Talk® will also be added to the digital podcast platform to attract advertising dollars.

 

Our goal for 2023 – 2024 is to increase the proliferation of connected TVs, voice assistants, smart auto and other connected devices which greatly increases the range of options for accessing and interacting with our content. Notably, our website musicofyourlife.com is currently under a rebuild to expand and simplify our access to a range of platforms and devices including smart speakers, digital auto dashes, tablets, wearables, smartphones, virtual assistants, televisions, and gaming consoles. include an all-in-one digital music, podcast, and live streaming digital radio service, We are very focused on rapidly growing content categories, such as podcasting. These initiatives not only improve the listener experience, but they also facilitate further engagement and heightened frequency of advertising impressions. We believe that podcasting is to talk what streaming is to music and is the next strategic audio platform. Our developing podcasting platform will allow us to capture incremental revenue as well as extend station brands, personalities, and events onto a new platform-ultimately extending and deepening our consumer relationships and our opportunities for additional advertising revenue.

 

 

 

 12 

 

 

Employing technology to gain greater penetration of advertising and listener reach.

 

As an indication of the size of the potential opportunity, we currently have approximately 350,000 total social media followers compared to millions of followers for some of our largest social and search competitors that utilize technology solutions for advertisers of all sizes. We will continue to enhance our monetization capabilities by utilizing the industry leading Triton Audio Marketplace, an innovative global open audio exchange that allows customers to aggregate audiences at scale across broadcast, podcast, and streaming, and Triton Digital, a global leader in digital audio advertising and measurement services. We plan to initiate the Triton services in the fourth quarter of this year.

 

Increasing share of national advertising market.

 

Broadcast radio is the number one consumer reach medium, and advertisers have a renewed appreciation for its scale, diverse demographic access and impact. We intend to complement our current local and national advertising presence in approximately 10 U.S. markets by further growing our stake in national advertising campaigns through our multi-platform portfolio of audio assets, roster of on-air talent, and the amplifying effect of our listeners' social engagement. As a result of our implementation of the Triton technology, national advertisers will be able to look to our audio offerings with their extensive reach, efficient pricing, and digital-like analytics.

 

Simply Whim™

 

We are expanding our efforts to target beauty enthusiasts across multiple demographics and shopping behaviors. Beauty enthusiasts have a deep emotional connection with beauty and develop brand loyalty when targeted with buying opportunities that reflect their social and economic profile.

 

Increasing our understanding about how the consumer and beauty category are evolving, during the first quarter 2023 we refreshed our strategic efforts to position Whim® for continued success. We are focused on four key strategic pillars designed to increase our market presence, create brand loyalty, and drive long-term profitable growth.

 

Drive breakthrough and disruptive growth through an expanded definition of Age is Not a Skin Type®.

 

Driving the message that your chronological age does not define how your skin ages, rather, the way you treat your skin through your lifestyle choices does, we are launching an advertising campaign our trademark Age is Not a Skin Type®, a daily regimen of Whim® products combined with a good diet, exercise, and healthy habits will help keep you looking young and healthy, regardless of your age.

 

Beauty enthusiasts enjoy the experience of discovering and trying new products and increasingly include beauty as part of their self-care and wellness journey. Reflecting these insights, our objective is to engage and continuously delight beauty enthusiasts with a curated, differentiated, inclusive assortment focused on leading beauty and self-care trends. We are focused on maximizing growth in two core categories: Outer Nutrition – a full-suite of topical skincare products including face wash, scrubs, moisturizers, and serums; and Inner Nutrition – a full-suite of ingestible nutrition products designed to drive growth of cross-category strategic platforms.

 

Evolve the omnichannel experience through connected physical and digital ecosystems.

 

Recent post-covid data trends confirm that beauty enthusiasts prefer to transact in physical stores, where they can discover and interact with products and other beauty enthusiasts. At the same time, digital channels offer convenience, product reviews, and price transparency. As a result, the guest journey is increasingly blurring across physical and digital channels. To drive greater guest engagement across all channels, we intend to enter the physical space focusing on resort spas and high-volume retail such as Sephora and Ulta. We will continue to differentiate our service offerings with our compelling story, healthy ingredients, and cleaver branding. We intend to grow our buy anywhere, fill anywhere capabilities with the inclusion of our new Amazon Marketplace and Public Square storefronts for a wider reach than a single point of purchase through our existing website SEO. Our objective is to deliver a cohesive, industry-leading omnichannel experience that drives breakthrough engagement with our guests and unlocks the combined potential of our physical and digital channels.

Expand and deepen our presence across the beauty journey, solidifying Whim® as a Lifestyle Brand focused on Nature Nutrition and Science.

 

Based on our marketing trends, beauty enthusiasts have an emotional, personal, and deep connection with beauty. Social media contributes to this connection, and we expect the influence and reach of beauty will continue to grow as engagement with social platforms increases. To expand Whim’s reach, relevancy, and buyer engagement, we intend to amplify our brand purpose; build a content ecosystem to deliver compelling, relevant ingredient awareness; drive further innovation in our high quality, safe, and efficacious beauty enhancing products to increase personalization, drive conversion, and support our brands. Our vision is to expand and deepen our presence across the beauty journey to increase consumer acquisition and drive consumer engagement, loyalty, and share of wallet.

 

Deeply committed to our “No Nasties” philosophy across new product development platforms utilizing the strictest global regulations.

 

Whim products are free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, artificial colors, and dyes. They’re cruelty free, gluten free, and vegan friendly.

We utilize the power of antioxidant vitamins, amino acids, peptides, and plant-based botanicals from both land and sea. And our nutrition products are non-GMO, sugar free, fat free and carb free. And contain no artificial colors or flavors.

 

New product offerings play a key role in brand awareness and customer loyalty. Dedicated to bolstering brand recognition across platforms, we aim to enrich our beauty collection with innovative products. Our latest offering, VitaWhims™ – a sugar-free multi-vitamin gummy, crafted in alignment with the Whim® philosophy.

 

Intellectual Property

 

A major factor in our growth and success is based on labeling our goods and services with brands which easily identify with the consumer. Through our subsidiaries, we have obtained exclusive licenses with the right of first refusal to multiple trademarks registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (the “USPTO”) and offer goods and services using these trademarks.

 

We are currently negotiating a concurrent use agreement with ULTA Beauty, the nation’s largest beauty retailer, for the Whim trademark in Class 03. ULTA allowed their Whim trademark to expire under the USPTO guidelines. Simply Whim CEO Jacquie Angell has successfully obtained multiple Whim trademarks with the USPTO and is currently in discussions with ULTA legal representatives.

Competition

 

Music of Your Life

 

We compete for share of our listeners’ time and engagement, a challenging task in today’s fragmented and multi-tasking world. We believe our national reach, the strength of our brand and assets, the quality of our programming and personalities, and the companionship nature of our medium allows us to compete effectively against both our legacy competition-cable and broadcast television, and other broadcast radio operators-as well as newer, digital competition, including streaming music and video services, social media, and other digital companies.

 

Similarly, we compete for advertising and marketing dollars in the U.S. advertising market against an increasingly diverse set of competitors. Our legacy competition for the radio, podcast and digital advertising market includes legacy broadcast radio operators, as well as satellite radio companies, podcasters and streaming music companies with ad supported components of their business. We also compete in the larger U.S. advertising market-inclusive of the radio, podcast and digital opportunity-by developing and offering competitive advertising products intended to attract advertising and marketing dollars that might otherwise go to companies in the cable and broadcast television, digital, search, Internet, audio, print, newspaper, sponsorship, and other advertising spaces.

 

Simply Whim

 

There is significant competition within each market and platform where our products are sold. We compete against manufacturers and marketers of beauty products, and personal care products. In addition to the established multinational brands against which we compete, small, targeted niche brands such as ours continue to enter the beauty market. We also have competition from private label products sold by retailers.

 

We believe that we compete primarily based on perceived value, including pricing and innovation, product efficacy, service to the consumer, promotional activities, advertising, special events, new product introductions, e-commerce initiatives, direct sales, and other activities (including influencers). It is difficult for us to predict the timing, scale, and effectiveness of our competitors’ actions in these areas or the timing and impact of new entrants into the marketplace.

Marketing and Advertising

 

Music of Your Life

 

We self-promote expansion of our podcast, streaming and syndication services across our broadcast network, mobile streaming applications, our broadcast website, and other digital platforms that reach national, regional, and local audiences as opportunities become available.

 

Simply Whim

 

Our marketing expense is targeted towards digital, social media, and streaming advertising. We believe these channels are highly effective in communicating with existing customers, as well as attracting new buyers. Our marketing program has been effective in communicating with our existing online, mobile, and retail followers in a targeted and relevant way. Our digital marketing strategy includes search engine optimization, paid search, mobile advertising, social media, display advertising, and influencer marketing channels. Digital marketing, coupled with our national radio advertising, has helped us increase brand awareness and consideration among those not familiar with Whim®, which we believe has resulted in new customers.

 

Information Technology

 

We are committed to using technology to improve our competitive position. We depend on a variety of information systems and technologies (including cloud technologies) to manage the operations of our growing customer base. We rely on computer systems to provide information for all areas of our business, including streaming, supply chain, merchandising, POS, e- commerce, marketing, finance, and accounting. Our core business systems consist mostly of purchased and licensed software programs that integrate together and with our internally developed web-based solutions. Our technology also includes a company-wide network that connects all corporate users, on-line stores, and our internal distribution infrastructure and provides communications for continual polling of sales movement across all levels.

 

We manage data security and privacy at the highest levels. Our Chief Executive Officer is actively engaged in oversight of cybersecurity and IT infrastructure and works with outsourced vendors to manage all network operations. Our vendors keep our Chief Executive Officer informed on cybersecurity and privacy matters throughout the year. We have established processes for sharing data and performing third-party risk assessment and regular disaster recovery planning and response readiness testing. Our security approach also includes multiple layers of defense and testing of controls. We have strengthened our data protection capabilities through investments in our infrastructure hardware and software.

Employees

 

As of May 31, 2023, Marc Angell (Director and Chief Executive Officer) is the only non-employee officer director of The Marquie Group. The Company has no official employees. We have an outside accountant, bookkeeper, and lawyer. We outsource our information technology services to a third-party vendor. Certain other executive and board positions have been identified, and we intend to fill these positions. Additional other support staff and other personnel will be hired when there is adequate capital available to do so. Music of Your Life currently has one part-time production person and three part-time announcers. We have one on-site part-time producer and one outside part-time producer.

 

As of May 31, 2023, Jacquie Angell (Director and Chief Executive Officer) is the only non-employee officer director of Simply Whim, Inc. Simply Whim has no official employees and has one part-time marketing person, an outside accountant, and an outside lawyer.

 

We have undertaken preliminary investigations concerning candidates for the above positions and do not currently anticipate difficulty in filling such positions with qualified persons; however, we cannot assure you that we will in fact be able to hire qualified persons for such positions when needed. Additional positions to be filled may be identified from time to time by the Company. We expect to be able to attract and retain such additional employees as are necessary, commensurate with the anticipated future expansion of our business. Further, we expect to continue to use consultants, contract labor, attorneys, accountants, and production personnel as necessary.

 

The loss of our CEO Marc Angell would likely have a material adverse effect on the Company. We intend to reduce this risk by obtaining key-man insurance if affordable insurance coverage may be obtained. We cannot assure you that the Company will be able to obtain such insurance or that the Company will be successful in recruiting needed personnel.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

 

The Company entered into a settlement agreement with the SEC pursuant to violation of Section 5(a) and Section 5(c) of the Securities Act.

 

On December 15, 2022, we entered into a settlement agreement with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We agreed that we failed to comply with Regulation A, which provides a limited exemption to the registration requirements of the Security Act for certain public offerings. Specifically, after obtaining qualification to offer shares at a fixed price pursuant to Regulation A, our lawyer materially changed the offering price on two occasions and thereafter we offered and sold shares in an offering that was not exempt from registration pursuant to Regulation A. We filed a post-effective supplement and should have filed a fully amendment to its filing with the appropriate comment and SEC review. As a result, it was deemed that we violated Sections 5(a) and 5(c) of the Securities Act. As a settlement, we paid a $10,000 fine, are barred from Regulation A filings for five years, and must cease and desist from violating section 5 of the Securities Act.

Sales of Unregistered Securities

 

Effective April 21, 2022, the Company effectuated a 1 for 1,000 reverse split of the Company’s Common Stock (“Reverse Split”), meaning that each 1,000 shares of Common Stock is consolidated into 1 share of Common Stock following the reverse split, provided however, that fractional shares would be rounded up to the nearest whole share. Following the Reverse Split, the Company had 16,189,732 common shares issued and outstanding. Due to a data input error, the opening bid price on the effective date for the stock was set at $0.01 instead of $0.10. This resulted in a 10-times loss in shareholder value. See Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

On August 16, 2018 (the “Closing Date”), Music of Your Life, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Merger Agreement (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among the Company, and The Marquie Group, Inc., a Utah corporation ("TMGI"), pursuant to which the Company merged with TMGI. The Company was the surviving corporation. Each shareholder of TMGI received one (1) share of common stock of the Company for every one (1) share of TMGI common stock held as of August 16, 2018. In accordance with the terms of the merger agreement, all of the shares of TMGI held by TMGI shareholders were cancelled, and 100,000 shares of common stock (as adjusted for the September 4, 2019, 1 share for 400 shares stock split) of the Company were issued to the TMGI shareholders. A majority of these shares, 50,000 shares of common stock of the Company were issued to Marc and Jacquie Angell, affiliates of the Company. This is considered a related party transaction. The TMGI merger will provide the Company with access to certain registered trademarks and intellectual property with respect to health, beauty, and social networking products.

 

With respect to the transactions noted above. Each of the recipients of securities of the Company was an accredited investor or is considered by the Company to be a “sophisticated person”, inasmuch as each of them has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that they are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of receiving securities of the Company. No solicitation was made, and no underwriting discounts were given or paid in connection with these transactions. The Company believes that the issuance of its securities as described above was exempt from registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933.

 

Penny Stock Rules

 

The SEC has also adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in “penny stocks” as such term is defined by Rule 15g-9. Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a price of less than $5.00 (other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or system).

 

Our shares constitute penny stocks under the Exchange Act. The shares may remain penny stocks for the foreseeable future. The classification of our shares as penny stocks makes it more difficult for a broker-dealer to sell the stock into a secondary market, which makes it more difficult for a purchaser to liquidate his or her investment. Any broker-dealer engaged by the purchaser for the purpose of selling his or her shares in TMGI will be subject to the penny stock rules.

 

The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, deliver a standardized risk disclosure document approved by the SEC, which: (i) contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading; (ii) contains a description of the broker’s or dealer’s duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to a violation to such duties or other requirements of the Securities Act; (iii) contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and significance of the spread between the bid and ask price; (iv) contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions; (v) defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and (vi) contains such other information and is in such form as the SEC shall require by rule or regulation. The broker-dealer also must provide to the customer, prior to effecting any transaction in a penny stock, (i) bid and offer quotations for the penny stock; (ii) the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction; (iii) the number of shares to which such bid and ask prices apply, or other comparable information relating to the depth and liquidity of the market for such stock; and (iv) monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account.

 

 

 

 21 

 

 

In addition, the penny stock rules require that, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written acknowledgment of the receipt of a risk disclosure statement, a written agreement to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitability statement. These disclosure requirements will have the effect of reducing the trading activity in the secondary market for our stock because it will be subject to these penny stock rules. Therefore, stockholders may have difficulty selling those securities.

We have three operating segments: (1) Broadcast, (2) Digital Media, and (3) Health and Beauty, which also qualify as reportable segments. Our operating segments reflect how we assess the performance of each operating segment and determine the appropriate allocations of resources to each segment. We continually review our operating segment classifications to align with operational changes in our business and may make changes as necessary.

 

We measure and evaluate our operating segments based on operating income and operating expenses that exclude costs related to corporate functions, such as accounting and finance, human resources, legal, tax and treasury. We also exclude costs such as amortization, depreciation, taxes, and interest expense when evaluating the performance of our operating segments.

Broadcasting

 

Our foundational business is radio broadcasting, which includes the ownership and operation of a syndicated radio network including our affiliated radio stations subscribing to our programming delivery. Refer to Item 1. Business of this annual report for a description of our broadcasting operations.

 

Advertising revenue generated from our syndicated radio operations is reported as broadcast revenue in our Consolidated Financial Statements included in Item 8 of this annual report. Advertising revenue is recorded on a gross basis unless an agency represents the advertiser, in which case revenue is reported net of the commission retained by the agency.

 

Broadcast revenue is impacted by the rates radio stations can charge for programming and advertising time, the level of airtime sold to programmers and advertisers, the number of impressions delivered, or downloads made, and the number of listener responses in the case of pay-per-call. Advertising rates are based upon the demand for advertising time, which in turn is based on our stations’ and networks’ ability to produce results for their advertisers. We market ourselves to advertisers based on the responsiveness of our audiences. We do not subscribe to traditional audience measuring services for most of our radio stations.

 

Each of our radio station affiliates allocates 3 minutes per hour of advertising time for our commercials at a preset time every hour based on the Music of Your Life clock.

 

Our results are subject to seasonal fluctuations. As is typical in the broadcasting industry, our second and fourth quarter advertising revenue typically exceeds our first and third quarter advertising revenue. Seasonal fluctuations in advertising revenue correspond with quarterly fluctuations in the retail industry. Additionally, we experience increased demand for political advertising during election even numbered years, over non-election odd numbered years. Political advertising revenue varies based on the number and type of candidates as well as the number and type of debated issues.

 

Broadcast operating expenses include: (i) employee salaries, commissions and related employee benefits and taxes, (ii) facility expenses such as lease expense and utilities, (iii) marketing and promotional expenses, (iv) production and programming expenses, and (v) music license fees. In addition to these expenses, our network incurs programming costs and lease expenses for satellite communication facilities.

 

Digital Media

 

Revenue generated from this segment is reported as digital media revenue in our Consolidated Statements of Operations under Item 8 of this annual report. Digital media revenue is impacted by the rates our sites can charge for advertising time, the level of advertisements sold, the number of impressions delivered, or the number of products sold, and the number of digital subscriptions sold. Like our broadcasting segment, our second and fourth quarter advertising revenue from our digital media segment generally exceeds the segment’s first and third quarter advertising revenue. This seasonal fluctuation in advertising revenue corresponds with quarterly fluctuations in the retail advertising industry. We also experience fluctuations in quarter-over-quarter comparisons based on the date on which Easter is observed, as this holiday generates a higher volume of product downloads from our church product websites. Additionally, we experience increased demand for advertising time and placement during election years for political advertisements.

 

The primary operating expenses incurred by our digital media businesses include: (i) employee salaries, commissions and related employee benefits and taxes, (ii) facility expenses such as lease expense and utilities, (iii) marketing and promotional expenses, (iv) royalties, (v) streaming costs, and (vi) cost of goods sold associated with e-commerce sites.

AminoMints®:

 

AminoMints® are a fun and innovative way to introduce amino acid supplements to those unfamiliar or have previously tried them and found the taste or experience unappealing. Daily amino acid supplementation is essential for maintaining health, optimal functioning, and addressing various health concerns. Amino acids are crucial components of all proteins. An imbalance of these amino acids can lead to numerous negative effects, such as fatigue, mood swings, concentration issues, muscle loss, and digestive disorders. Amino acid deficiencies are common and can also impact our appearance, leading to dry, brittle nails, dry hair and skin, loss of lean muscle, and weight gain.

 

All products in development are estimated to launch mid-2024.

Results of Operations

 

Following is management’s discussion of the relevant items affecting results of operations for the years ended May 31, 2023, and 2022.

 

Revenues. The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Music of Your Life generated $2,500 in net revenues for the years ended May 31, 2023 and 2022. Broadcast radio revenues are primarily generated by pay per call spot sales from various advertisers represented by the advertising agency, MSH Marketing, and pay per call spot sales from MyPillow. Through barter arrangements with our terrestrial radio station affiliates, Music of Your Life owns three minutes per hour to sell goods and services on these stations.

 

Our subsidiary, Simply Whim, generated $25,000 in gross revenue for the year ending May 31, 2023, and is forecasting an estimated 40-times growth in revenue for 2024.

 

Cost of Sales. Our cost of sales was $-0- for both years ended May 31, 2023 and 2022. Our cost of sales in the future will consist principally of licensing costs and royalties associated with our syndicated radio network, other related services provided directly or outsourced through our affiliates, as well as operational and staffing costs with respect thereto.

Salaries and Consulting Expenses. Executive salaries remain unpaid and accruing for the year ending May 31, 2023. Accrued salaries and consulting expenses for the year ended May 31, 2023 were $240,000 as compared to $120,000 for the year ended May 31, 2022. We expect that salaries and consulting expenses, that are cash-based instead of share-based, will increase as we add personnel to build our health and beauty business.

 

Professional Fees. Professional fees for the year ended May 31, 2023 were $85,190 as compared to $97,162 for the year ended May 31, 2022. We anticipate that professional fees will increase in future periods as we scale up our operations.

 

Other Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. Other selling, general and administrative expenses were $31,280 for the year ended May 31, 2023 as compared to $45,403 for the year ended May 31, 2022. We anticipate that Other SG&A expenses will increase commensurate with an increase in our operations.

 

Other Income (Expense). The Company had net other income of $1,536,629 for the year ended May 31, 2023. For the year ended May 31, 2023, the company incurred interest expense of $375,008 and recorded income from derivative liability of $1,911,637. The Company had net other expenses of $3,853,387 for the year ended May 31, 2022. For the year ended May 31, 2022, the company recorded a gain on settlement of debt in the amount of $260,032, incurred interest expense of $645,021, expense from derivative liability of $526,690 and loss on conversion of notes payable and accrued interest of $2,941,708.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of May 31, 2023, our primary source of liquidity consisted of $25,250 in cash and cash equivalents. We hold most of our cash reserves in local checking accounts with local financial institutions. Since inception, we have financed our operations through a combination of short and long-term loans, and through the private placement of our common stock.

 

We generated net income for the year ended May 31, 2023 of $1,180,159, mostly from derivative liability income. We have sustained significant net losses which have resulted in an accumulated deficit at May 31, 2023 of $14,698,030 and are currently experiencing a substantial shortfall in operating capital which raises doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Without additional revenues, working capital loans, or equity investment, there is substantial doubt as to our ability to continue operations.

 

We believe these conditions have resulted from the inherent risks associated with small public companies. Such risks include, but are not limited to, the ability to (i) generate revenues and sales of our products and services at levels sufficient to cover our costs and provide a return for investors, (ii) attract additional capital in order to finance growth, (iii) successfully compete with other comparable companies having financial, production and marketing resources significantly greater than those of the Company, and (iv) increasing costs associated with maintaining public company reporting requirements.

 

We believe that our capital resources are insufficient for ongoing operations, with minimal current cash reserves, particularly given the resources necessary to expand our multi-media entertainment business. We will likely require considerable amounts of financing to make any significant advancement in our business strategy. There is presently no agreement in place that will guarantee financing for our Company, and we cannot assure you that we will be able to raise any additional funds, or that such funds will be available on acceptable terms. Funds raised through future equity financing will likely be substantially dilutive to current shareholders. Lack of additional funds will materially affect our Company and our business and may cause us to substantially curtail or even cease operations. Consequently, you could incur a loss of your entire investment in the Company.

Stock Price Listing Calculation Error

 

On April 21, 2022, our 1,000:1 reverse stock split became effective. The share price was to be recalculated at 1,000:1, the same ratio as our outstanding share total. However, the opening bid for our stock was set in error at $0.01, instead of $0.10, resulting in a 10-times loss in shareholder value. Despite many attempts over several months of communications with the various agencies, we were informed there was nothing that could be done to rectify the matter and the bid would not be corrected.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

We believe the following more critical accounting policies are used in the preparation of our financial statements:

 

Use of Estimates. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates. On a periodic basis, management reviews those estimates, including those related to valuation allowances, loss contingencies, income taxes, and projection of future cash flows.

 

Research and Development. Research and development costs are charged to operations when incurred and are included in operating expenses.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

There were various accounting standards and interpretations recently issued, none of which are expected to have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, operations, or cash flows.

Report of Independent Registerred Public Accounting Firm

 

Board of Directors and Shareholders

The Marquie Group, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of The Marquie Group, Inc. (the “Company”) as of May 31, 2023 and May 31, 2022, respectively, and the related consolidated statements of operations, statements of stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes and schedules (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of May 31, 2023 and May 31, 2022, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the entity’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) ("PCAOB") and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Going Concern Uncertainty

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in note 12 to the financial statements, the Company has incurred losses since inception of $14,698,030 and negative working capital of $6,366,552. These factors create an uncertainty as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in note 12. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Critical Audit Matters

 

The critical audit matters communicated below are matters arising from the current period audit of the financial statements that were communicated or required to be communicated to the audit committee and that: (1) relate to accounts or disclosures that are material to the financial statements and (2) involved our especially challenging, subjective, or complex judgments. The communication of critical audit matters does not alter in any way our opinion on the financial statements, taken as a whole, and we are not, by communicating the critical audit matters below, providing separate opinions on the critical audit matters or on the accounts or disclosures to which they relate.

 

Loss on conversions of notes payable and accrued interest to common stock

 

Critical Audit Matter Description

 

The Company has had outstanding notes payable to lenders which are convertible into Company common stock at conversion prices which are based on the future trading price of the Company's common stock. For the year ended May 31, 2022, the Company issued a total of 11,511,179 shares of its common stock pursuant to conversions of an aggregate of $285,683 in principal and accrued interest. The $2,941,708 in excess of the $3,227,391 fair value of the 11,511,179 shares of common stock at the respective dates of issuance over the $285,683 liability reduction was charged to Loss on Conversions of Notes Payable.

 

How the Critical Audit Matter was Addressed in the Audit

 

Our principal audit procedures related to the Company's loss on conversions of notes payable and accrued interest to common stock expense included:

 

·We obtained Company prepared quarterly schedules of all conversions of notes payable and accrued interest to common stock for the year ended May 31, 2022.
·We agreed the prices used to independent third-party sources of closing trading prices of the Company common stock on the respective issuance dates. We then verified the calculation by multiplying the number of shares issued times the respective closing trading prices for each conversion.
·We agreed the principal and accrued interest amounts to Notices of Conversions for each conversion.

 

Emphasis of Matters-Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Company is not able to predict the ultimate impact that COVID -19 will have on its business. However, if the current economic conditions continue, the pandemic could have an adverse impact on the economies and
financial markets of many countries, including the geographical area in which the Company plans to operate.

THE MARQUIE GROUP, INC.

(formerly Music of Your Life, Inc.)

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

May 31, 2023

 

 

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION

 

Music of Your Life, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Florida on January 30, 2008 under the name of “Zhong Sen International Tea Company”. From January 2008 to May 2013, the Company operated with the principal business objective of providing sales and marketing consulting services to small to medium sized Chinese tea producing companies who wished to export and distribute high quality Chinese tea products worldwide. On May 31, 2013 (the “Closing Date”), the Company entered into a Merger Agreement (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among the Company, Music of Your Life, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“MOYL Nevada”) incorporated October 10, 2012, and Music of Your Life Merger Sub, Inc., a Utah corporation (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which MOYL Nevada merged with Merger Sub. As a result of the merger, MOYL Nevada became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and on July 26, 2013, the Company changed its name to Music of Your Life, Inc., and operated a nationwide syndicated radio network.

 

Reverse Stock Split

 

Effective April 21, 2022, the Company effectuated a 1 share for 1,000 shares reverse stock split which reduced the issued and outstanding shares of common stock from 16,189,731,657 shares to 16,189,732 shares. The accompanying financial statements have been retroactively adjusted to reflect this reverse stock split. Due to a data input error, the opening Bid price for the stock was set at $0.01 instead of $0.10. This resulted in a 10-times loss in shareholder value. See Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

Acquisition of The Marquie Group, Inc.

 

On August 16, 2018 (see Note 10), the Company merged with The Marquie Group, Inc. (“TMGI”) in exchange for the issuance of a total of 100,000 shares of our common stock to TMGI’s stockholders. Following the merger, the Company had 102,277 shares of common stock issued and outstanding. On December 5, 2018, the Company amended and restated its Articles of Incorporation providing for a change in the Company’s name from “Music of Your Life, Inc.” to “The Marquie Group, Inc.” The TMGI business plan is to advertise a direct-to-consumer, health and beauty product line called “Whim” that use innovative formulations of plant-based, amino-acids and other natural alternatives to chemical ingredients.

 

Acquisition of Global Nutrition Experience, Inc.

 

On November 21, 2019 (see Note 10), the Company merged with Global Nutrition Experience, Inc. (“GNE”) in exchange for the issuance of a total of 193,000,000 shares of our common stock to GNE’s stockholder. The GNE business plan is to license intellectual property from, and to third parties.

 

NOTE 2 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

This summary of significant accounting policies of the Company is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s financial statements. The financial statements and notes are representations of the Company’s management who are responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements. The following policies are considered to be significant:

 

 

 38 

 

 

THE MARQUIE GROUP, INC.

(formerly Music of Your Life, Inc.)

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

May 31, 2023

 

 

a.       Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and include the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary. All inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

b.       Accounting Method

 

The Company recognizes income and expenses based on the accrual method of accounting. The Company has elected a May 31 year-end.

 

c.       Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

d.       Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash equivalents are generally comprised of certain highly liquid investments with original maturities of less than three months.

 

e.       Basic and Fully Diluted Net Loss per Share of Common Stock

 

In accordance with Financial Accounting Standards No. ASC 260, “Earnings per Share,” basic net loss per common share is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the periods presented. Diluted earnings per share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares plus dilutive common share equivalents outstanding during the period. Dilutive instruments (such as convertible notes payable) have not been included in the diluted earnings per share computations as their effect were antidilutive for the periods presented.

 

f.       Revenue Recognition

 

The Company adopted ASC 606 requires the use of a new five-step model to recognize revenue from customer contracts. The five-step model requires entities to exercise judgment when considering the terms of contracts, which includes (1) identifying the contracts or agreements with a customer, (2) identifying our performance obligations in the contract or agreement, (3) determining the transaction price, (4) allocating the transaction price to the separate performance obligations, and (5) recognizing revenue as each performance obligation is satisfied. Advance customer payments are recorded as deferred revenue until such time as they are recognized. The Company does not offer any cash rebates. Returns or discounts, if any, are netted against gross revenues.

g.       Advertising

 

Advertising costs, which are expensed as incurred, were $3,750 for the year ended May 31, 2023 and $2,225 for the year ending May 31, 2022.

 

h.       Income Taxes

 

Deferred income taxes are provided on a liability method whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

 

At May 31, 2023, the Company had net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $9,842,689, of which $3,340,960 expires in varying amounts through 2038 and $6,521,729 does not expire. No tax benefit has been reported in the financial statements because the potential tax benefits of the net operating loss carryforwards are offset by a valuation allowance of the same amount.

 

Due to the change in ownership provisions of the Tax Reform Act of 1986, net operating loss carryforwards for Federal income tax reporting purposes are subject to annual limitations. Should a substantial change in ownership occur, net operating loss carryforwards may be limited as to future use.

 

Net deferred tax assets consist of the following components as of May 31, 2023 and 2022: 

          
   May 31, 2023   May 31, 2022 
Deferred tax assets:          
NOL Carryover  $1,401,372   $1,262,593 
Valuation allowance   (1,401,372)   (1,262,593)
Net deferred tax asset  $   $ 

 

The income tax provision differs from the amount of income tax determined by applying the U.S. federal income tax rate of 21% to pretax income (loss) for the years ended May 31, 2023 and 2022 due to the following: 

          
   May 31, 2023   May 31, 2022 
Expected tax (benefit) at 21%  $247,833   $(864,350)
Non-deductible expense (non-taxable income) from derivative liability   (401,444)   110,605 
Non-deductible amortization of debt discounts   14,832    76,007 
Non-deductible loss on conversions of notes payable and accrued interest       617,759 
Change in valuation allowance   138,779    59,979 
Provision for income taxes  $   $

THE MARQUIE GROUP, INC.

(formerly Music of Your Life, Inc.)

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

May 31, 2023

 

 

For the periods presented, the Company had no tax positions or unrecognized tax benefits.

 

The Company includes interest and penalties arising from the underpayment of income taxes in the consolidated statements of operations in the provision for income taxes. For the periods presented, the Company had no such interest or penalties.

 

i.      Concentrations of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risks consist of cash and cash equivalents. The Company places cash and cash equivalents at well-known quality financial institutions. Cash and cash equivalents at banks are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation for up to $250,000. The Company did not have any cash or cash equivalents in excess of this amount at May 31, 2023.

 

j.      Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

We have reviewed accounting pronouncements issued and have adopted any that are applicable to the Company. We have determined that none had a material impact on our financial position, results of operations, or cash flows for the years ended May 31, 2023 and 2022.

 

Certain other accounting pronouncements have been issued by the FASB and other standard setting organizations which are not yet effective and therefore have not yet been adopted by the Company. The impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations from adoption of these standards is not expected to be material.

 

NOTE 3 - FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

The Company has adopted FASB ASC 820-10-50, “Fair Value Measurements.” This guidance defines fair value, establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement and enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures.  The three levels are defined as follows:

 

Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 

Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

 

Level 3 inputs to valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair measurement.

 

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for the cash and cash equivalents, receivables, and current liabilities each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of fair value because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest.

NOTE 4 - MUSIC INVENTORY

 

Our Music of Your Life song catalogue is compiled of more than 100,000 titles. Many of these songs include difficult to find older recordings that originated on long play records (LP’s) which date back to the turn of the 20th century. We also have our entire catalogue on several hundred reel-to-reel tapes which preserve the high quality of the originals. We have transferred much of this music to a lossless digital format known as the Waveform Audio File Format (WAV). These WAV files are of a very large size and take up tremendous hard drive space, therefore, we have converted our entire catalogue to the MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 format (MP3). Advancing software and hardware technology in the music space has reached a pinnacle with a recent lossless format called FLAC, or Free Lossless Audio Codec. This technology offers amazing, CD or WAV quality specifications in a small file size. An effort is underway to convert the entire Music of Your Life catalogue from the original source material to the FLAC format offering our listeners a much-improved experience which cannot be found on any free streaming service today.

 

The replacement value of our music catalogue is valued at more than $250,000.

 

Music inventory consisted of the following: 

          
   May 31, 2023   May 31, 2022 
Digital music acquired for use in operations – at cost  $21,648   $21,648 
Accumulated depreciation   (20,719)   (19,481)
Music inventory – net  $929   $2,167 

 

The Company purchases digital music from time to time as new music become available for broadcast on our network. During the years ended May 31, 2023 and 2022, the Company purchased $1,250 worth of music inventory. For the years ended May 31, 2023 and 2022, depreciation on music inventory was $1,238 and $2,142, respectively.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

The above convertible notes contain a variable conversion feature based on the future trading price of the Company common stock. Therefore, the number of shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes is indeterminate. Accordingly, we have recorded the fair value of the embedded conversion features as a derivative liability at the respective issuance dates of the notes and charged the applicable amounts to debt discounts and the remainder to other expense. The increase (decrease) in the fair value of the derivative liability from the respective issuance dates of the notes to the measurement dates is charged (credited) to other expense (income). The fair value of the derivative liability of the notes is measured at the respective issuance dates and quarterly thereafter using the Black Scholes option pricing model.

 

Assumptions used for the calculations of the derivative liability of the notes at May 31, 2023 include (1) stock price of $0.0041 per share, (2) exercise prices ranging from $0.00004 to $0.001755 per share, (3) terms ranging from 0 days to 315 days, (4) expected volatility of 2,189% and (5) risk free interest rates ranging from 4.65% to 5.28%.

 

Assumptions used for the calculations of the derivative liability of the notes at May 31, 2022 include (1) stock price of $0.001 per share, (2) exercise prices ranging from $0.00004 to $0.00065 per share, (3) terms ranging from 0 days to 88 days, (4) expected volatility of 1,986% and (5) risk free interest rates ranging from 0.73% to 1.16%.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

NOTE 12 - GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. At May 31, 2023, the Company had negative working capital of $6,366,552 and an accumulated deficit of $14,698,030. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

To date the Company has funded its operations through a combination of loans and sales of common stock. The Company anticipates another net loss for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2024 and with the expected cash requirements for the coming year, there is substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue operations.

 

The Company is attempting to improve these conditions by way of financial assistance through issuances of additional equity and by generating revenues through sales of products and services.

 

The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

NOTE 13 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

The Company has evaluated subsequent events from the balance sheet date through the date the financial statements were issued and determined there are no additional events requiring disclosure.

As of May 31, 2023, the end of our fiscal year covered by this report, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision of our Chief Executive Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based on the foregoing, we concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of the end of the period covered by this annual report. One member of our management team handles all accounting duties including the recording of transactions, paying bills, and reconciling the bank account. We have minimized this risk by having an external accountant review all transactions and make the appropriate adjustments. We do not have a formal audit committee.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act, as amended). In fulfilling this responsibility, estimates and judgments by management are required to assess the expected benefits and related costs of control procedures. The objectives of internal control include providing management with reasonable, but not absolute, assurance that assets are safeguarded against loss from unauthorized use or disposition, and that transactions are executed in accordance with management’s authorization and recorded properly to permit the preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Our management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of May 31, 2023. In making this assessment, our management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework. Our management has concluded that, as of May 31, 2023, our internal control over financial reporting is not effective in providing reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with US generally accepted accounting principles. This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the Company to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

 

Inherent limitations on effectiveness of controls

 

Internal control over financial reporting has inherent limitations which include but is not limited to the use of independent professionals for advice and guidance, interpretation of existing and/or changing rules and principles, segregation of management duties, scale of organization, and personnel factors. Internal control over financial reporting is a process which involves human diligence and compliance and is subject to lapses in judgment and breakdowns resulting from human failures. Internal control over financial reporting also can be circumvented by collusion or improper management override. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements on a timely basis, however these inherent limitations are known features of the financial reporting process and it is possible to design into the process safeguards to reduce, though not eliminate, this risk. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

ITEM 10. DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS, AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE.

 

Board of Directors

 

Our board of directors consists of the following individual:

 

Name and Year First Elected Director(1)   Age   Background Information

Marc Angell

(2013)

  65  

Mr. Angell has been the Chief Executive Officer of The Marquie Group, Inc., since November 2012. Mr. Angell acquired the well-known Music of Your Life trademark in 2008, and in November 2012, Angell formed Music of Your Life, Inc. as an entertainment company to capitalize on the growth and development of the Music of Your Life trademark and branding, including radio, TV, live concerts, and merchandising. Mr. Angell was a director of Wireless Village, Inc., a telecommunications solution provider, and the public company, Concierge Technologies, Inc. from June, 2004 to January, 2008. In 2000, Mr. Angell became the founder and President of Planet Halo, a wireless telecommunications company, until he sold it in May, 2004 to Concierge Technologies, Inc. (OTC:BB CNCG). In January 1990 Mr. Angell founded Angellcom, a supplier and distributor of one-way paging devices in the U.S. He remained its CEO until 1999. Mr. Angell conceptualized, designed, and marketed both the one-way pagers for Angellcom and the Halo device for Planet Halo. Angellcom became one of the largest suppliers of one-way pagers in North America. During the 1990s, Mr. Angell was also involved in the land mobile radio business as a license holder and manager of 220MHz radio systems throughout the United States and Mexico. Angell became the first US citizen in history to hold a spectrum license in Mexico.

 

Mr. Angell was first-to-market with the “iPad” trademark, the “HALO” trademark, and the “WINGS” trademark, all of which were successfully negotiated with their respective current owners.

 

(1) The business address of each of our directors is 7901 4th St. N, Ste. 4000, St. Petersburgh, FL 33702

 

Director Independence

 

Because our common stock is not currently listed on a national securities exchange, we have used the definition of “independence” of The NASDAQ Stock Market to make this determination. NASDAQ Listing Rule 5605(a)(2) provides that an “independent director” is a person other than an officer or employee of the Company or any other individual having a relationship which, in the opinion of the Company’s board of directors, would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. The NASDAQ listing rules provide that a director cannot be considered independent if:

 

·the director is, or at any time during the past three years was, an employee of the company;
   
 ·the director or a family member of the director accepted any compensation from the company in excess of $120,000 during any period of 12 consecutive months within the three years preceding the independence determination (subject to certain exclusions, including, among other things, compensation for board or board committee service);

 

 

 

 56 

 

 

·a family member of the director is, or at any time during the past three years was, an executive officer of the company;

 

·the director or a family member of the director is a partner in, controlling stockholder of, or an executive officer of an entity to which the company made, or from which the company received, payments in the current or any of the past three fiscal years that exceed 5% of the recipient’s consolidated gross revenue for that year or $200,000, whichever is greater (subject to certain exclusions);

 

·the director or a family member of the director is employed as an executive officer of an entity where, at any time during the past three years, any of the executive officers of the company served on the compensation committee of such other entity; or the director or a family member of the director is a current partner of the company’s outside auditor, or at any time during the past three years was a partner or employee of the company’s outside auditor, and who worked on the company’s audit. We do not have any independent directors. We do not have an audit committee, compensation committee or nominating committee. We do however have a code of ethics that applies to our officers, employees, and director.

 

Compensation of Directors

 

Although we anticipate compensating the members of our board of directors in the future at industry levels, current members are not paid cash compensation for their service as directors. Each director may be reimbursed for certain expenses incurred in attending board of directors and committee meetings.

 

Board of Directors Meetings and Committees

 

Although various items were reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors via unanimous written consent during fiscal year ended May 31, 2023, the Board held no in-person meetings.

 

We do not have Audit or Compensation Committees of our board of directors. Because of the lack of financial resources available to us, we also do not have an “audit committee financial expert” as such term is described in Item 401 of Regulation S-K promulgated by the SEC.

 

Changes in Procedures by which Security Holders May Recommend Nominees to the Board

 

Any security holder who wishes to recommend a prospective director nominee should do so in writing by sending a letter to the Board of Directors. The letter should be signed, dated, and include the name and address of the security holder making the recommendation, information to enable the Board to verify that the security holder was the holder of record or beneficial owner of the company’s securities as of the date of the letter, and the name, address and resumé of the potential nominee. Specific minimum qualifications for directors and director nominees which the Board believes must be met in order to be so considered include, but are not limited to, management experience, exemplary personal integrity and reputation, sound judgment, and sufficient time to devote to the discharge of his or her duties. There have been no changes to the procedures by which a security holder may recommend a nominee to the Board during our most recently ended fiscal year.

 

Executive Officers

 

Marc Angell is our sole executive officer, serving as our Chief Executive Officer and Secretary, as well as our principal accounting and financial officer. Further information pertaining to Mr. Angell’s business background and experience is contained in the section above marked DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS, AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE.

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

 

We are required to identify each person who was an officer, director, or beneficial owner of more than 10% of our registered equity securities during our most recent fiscal year and who failed to file on a timely basis reports required by Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

 

To our knowledge, during the fiscal year ended May 31, 2023, based solely upon a review of such materials as are required by the Securities and Exchange Commission, no other officer, director, or beneficial holder of more than ten percent of our issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock failed to timely file with the Securities and Exchange Commission any form or report required to be so filed pursuant to Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act of 1934.

 

Code of Ethics

 

The Company expects that its Officers and Directors will maintain appropriate standards of honesty and ethical conduct in connection with the performance of their duties on behalf of the Company. In recognition of this expectation, the Company has adopted a Code of Ethics. The purpose of this Code of Ethics is to codify standards the Company believes are reasonably necessary to deter wrongdoing and to promote honest and ethical conduct, including the ethical handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and professional relationships and full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that the Company files with, or submits to, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), or other regulatory bodies and in other public communications made by the Company.  

 

ITEM 11. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION.

 

The following table summarizes the total compensation for the two fiscal years ended May 31, 2023 of each person who served as our principal executive officer or principal financial and accounting officer collectively, (the “Named Executive Officers”) including any other executive officer who received more than $100,000 in annual compensation from the Company.

 

Executive salaries have been accrued and remain unpaid for the years ending May 31, 2023, and 2022. We did not award cash bonuses, stock options or non-equity incentive plan compensation to any Named Executive Officer during the two fiscal years ended May 31, 2023; thus, these items are omitted from the table below:

ITEM 12. SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS.

 

The following table sets forth the beneficial ownership of each of our directors and executive officers, and each person known to us to beneficially own 5% or more of the outstanding shares of our common stock, and our executive officers and directors as a group, as of September 12, 2023. Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the SEC and includes voting or investment power with respect to the securities. Unless otherwise indicated, we believe that each beneficial owner set forth in the table has sole voting and investment power and has the same address as us. Our address is 7901 4th St. N, Ste. 4000, St. Petersburgh, FL 33702. As of September 12, 2023, there were 884,291,250 shares of common stock issued and outstanding, and 200 shares of Series A Preferred Stock issued and outstanding. Each share of Series A Preferred Stock have voting rights equal to four times the sum of (a) all shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding at the time of voting; plus (b) the total number of votes of all other classes of preferred stock which are issued and outstanding at the time of voting; divided by (c) the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock issued and outstanding at the time of voting. The Series A Preferred Stock continues to have no conversion, liquidation, or dividend rights. The following table describes the ownership of our voting securities (i) by each of our officers and directors, (ii) all of our officers and directors as a group, and (iii) each person known to us to own beneficially more than 5% of our common stock or any shares of our preferred stock.

(2)CEO/Chairman of the Board of Directors and spouse of shareholder, Jacquie Angell. Includes 666,732,768 shares of common stock held by Marc and Jacquie Angell, and the Angell Family Trust.. Excludes 200 shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by Mr. Angell which have super-voting rights, but no conversion, dividend, or liquidation rights. If the votes of the Series A Preferred Stock were taken into account, Mr. Angell would beneficially hold approximately 75.39% of the voting securities of the Company.

 

Limitation of Liability of Directors and Officers; Indemnification and Advance of Expenses

 

Pursuant to our charter and under Section 607.0850 of the 2012 Florida Statutes (hereafter, the “Statutes”), our directors are not liable to us or our stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty, except for liability in connection with a breach of duty of loyalty, for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, for authorization of illegal dividend payments or stock redemptions under Florida law or any transaction from which a director has derived an improper personal benefit. Our charter provides that we are authorized to provide indemnification of (and advancement of expenses) to our directors, officers, employees, and agents (and any other persons to which applicable law permits us to provide indemnification) through Bylaw provisions, agreements with such persons, vote of stockholders or disinterested directors, or otherwise, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

 

 

 

 59 

 

 

We intend to enter into indemnification agreements with certain of our current directors and officers. The indemnification agreement will indemnify the indemnitee to the fullest extent permitted by law, including against third-party claims and claims by or in right of the Company or any subsidiary or majority-owned partnership of the Company by reason of that person (including the advancement of expenses subject to certain conditions) (a) being a director, officer employee or agent of the Company, or of any subsidiary or majority-owned partnership of the Company or (b) serving at our request as a director, officer, employee or agent of another entity. If appropriate, we will be entitled to assume the defense of the claim with counsel selected by us and approved by the indemnitee (which approval may not be unreasonably withheld). Separate counsel employed by the indemnitee will be at his or her own expense unless (1) the employment of separate counsel has been previously authorized by us, (2) the indemnitee reasonably concludes there may be a conflict of interest or (3) we have not, in fact, employed counsel to assume the defense of such claim.

 

The Bylaws of the Company provide for indemnification of Covered Persons substantially identical in scope to that permitted under the Florida Law. Such Bylaws provide that the expenses of directors and officers of the Company incurred in defending any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, must be paid by the Company as they are incurred and in advance of the final disposition of the action, suit or proceeding, upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of such director or officer to repay all amounts so advanced if it is ultimately determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that the director or officer is not entitled to be indemnified by the Company.

 

Disclosure of Commission Position on Indemnification for Securities Act Liabilities

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to our directors, officers and controlling persons pursuant to the provisions above, or otherwise, we have been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act, and is, therefore, unenforceable.

 

In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities, other than the payment by us of expenses incurred or paid by one of our directors, officers, or controlling persons in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding, is asserted by one of our directors, officers, or controlling persons in connection with the securities being registered, we will, unless in the opinion of our counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act, and we will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue

 

Provisions of Our Charter and Bylaws

 

Our charter and bylaws provide that our board of directors will have the exclusive power to make, alter, amend, or repeal any provision of our bylaws.

 

Change of Control

 

On February 26, 2013, Marc Angell purchased a controlling interest in the Company. Through his ownership of 200 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, he and may unilaterally determine the election of the Board and other substantive matters requiring approval of the Company’s stockholders.

 

Other than the transactions and agreements disclosed in this Report, the Registrant knows of no arrangements which may result in a change of control of the Registrant.

 

No officer, director, promoter, or affiliate of the Registrant has, or proposes to have, any direct or indirect material interest in any asset proposed to be acquired by the Registrant through security holdings, contracts, options or otherwise.

ITEM 13. CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE.

 

Certain Relationships and Related Transactions

 

On March 4, 2016, the Board of Directors of Music of Your Life, Inc., a Florida corporation (the “Company”) issued all 200 previously authorized but unissued shares of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Stock”) to the Company’s sole officer and director Marc Angell. At May 31, 2023, the Preferred Stock collectively holds 80% of the total voting power of the Company.

 

On November 9, 2016, the Company amended its Articles of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 2,000,000,000 to 10,000,000,000 shares and to amend the voting rights for the Series A Preferred Stock. As amended, each share of Series A Preferred Stock shall have voting rights equal to four times the sum of (a) all shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding at the time of voting; plus (b) the total number of votes of all other classes of preferred stock which are issued and outstanding at the time of voting; divided by (c) the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock issued and outstanding at the time of voting. The Series A Preferred Stock continues to have no conversion, liquidation, or dividend rights.

 

On August 16, 2018 (the “Closing Date”), Music of Your Life, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Merger Agreement (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among the Company, and The Marquie Group, Inc., a Utah corporation ("TMGI"), pursuant to which the Company merged with TMGI. The Company was the surviving corporation. Each shareholder of TMGI received one (1) share of common stock of the Company for every one (1) share of TMGI common stock held as of August 16, 2018. In accordance with the terms of the merger agreement, all of the shares of TMGI held by TMGI shareholders were cancelled, and 100,000 shares of common stock of the Company were issued to the TMGI shareholders. A majority of these shares, 50,000 shares of common stock of the Company were issued to Marc and Jacquie Angell, affiliates of the Company. This is considered a related party transaction. The TMGI merger will provide the Company with certain registered trademarks and intellectual property of TMGI with respect to health, beauty, and social networking products.

 

ITEM 14. PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTING FEES AND SERVICES.

 

On July 14, 2022, the Company dismissed its independent registered accounting firm Michael T. Studer CPA P.C. and engaged Gries and Associates, LLC as its independent accountant following the prior accountant’s dismissal. The following table sets forth fees invoiced by our independent registered accounting firm Gries and Associates, LLC during the fiscal year ended May 31, 2023, and Michael T. Studer, CPA P.C. during the fiscal year ended May 31, 2022:

 

   2023   2022 
Audit Fees  $31,500   $30,000 
Audit Related Fees   -0-    -0- 
Tax Fees   -0-    -0- 
All Other Fees   -0-    -0- 
Total Fees  $31,500   $30,000 

 

It is the policy of the Board of Directors, which presently completes the functions of the Audit Committee, to engage the independent accountants selected to conduct our financial audit and to confirm, prior to such engagement, that such independent accountants are independent of the company. All services of the independent registered accounting firms reflected above were pre-approved by the Board of Directors.
