Historical Results of Operations

Factmata, Inc. was incorporated in Delaware on March 2017. In May 2017, the Company was assigned full ownership of its operating company, Factmata Limited, which was registered as a private limited company in England U.K. on January 2017. Factmata Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Factmata Limited. (collectively referred to as “the Company”). develops an artificial intelligence text reading software for claims made in digital media content. The Company engages people in the process of correcting news articles, identifying fallible claims, and supporting more accurate information on the Web. It detects fake news and tracks rumors and hoaxes. The company has limited operations upon which prospective investors may base an evaluation of its performance. 

  • Revenues & Gross Margin. For the period ended December 31, 2020, the Company had revenues of $0 compared to the year ended December 31, 2019, when the Company had revenues of $0.
  • Assets. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had total assets of $988,737, including $1,030 in cash. As of December 31, 2019, the Company had $715,623 in total assets, including $290,599 in cash.

  • Liabilities. The Company's liabilities totaled $4,284,311 for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 and $3,862,267 for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

Liquidity & Capital Resources

To date, the company has been financed with $3,682,558 in convertible notes and $25,000 in debt.

After the conclusion of this Offering, should we hit our minimum funding target, our projected runway is 5 months before we need to raise further capital.

We plan to use the proceeds as set forth in this Form C under "Use of Funds". We don’t have any other sources of capital in the immediate future.

We will likely require additional financing in excess of the proceeds from the Offering in order to perform operations over the lifetime of the Company. We plan to raise capital in 6 months. Except as otherwise described in this Form C, we do not have additional sources of capital other than the proceeds from the offering. Because of the complexities and uncertainties in establishing a new business strategy, it is not possible to adequately project whether the proceeds of this offering will be sufficient to enable us to implement our strategy. This complexity and uncertainty will be increased if less than the maximum amount of securities offered in this offering is sold. The Company intends to raise additional capital in the future from investors. Although capital may be available for early-stage companies, there is no guarantee that the Company will receive any investments from investors.

Runway & Short/Mid Term Expenses

Factmata Inc cash in hand is $128,016.31, as of March 2021. Over the last three months, revenues have averaged $2,283/month, cost of goods sold has averaged $1,179/month, and operational expenses have averaged $24,570/month, for an average burn rate of $23,466 per month. Our intent is to be profitable in 8 months.

Since the date our financials cover, we've received a major R&D tax credit from the UK government, worth $257,534. This boost has allowed us to cover runway from 24 March 2021 until July 2021.

We expect revenues to be at $30k MRR within 6 months or less. We expect expenses to slightly increase to $40k per month within 6 months. Based on current projections for sales we expect to be breaking even in six months, meaning based on current monthly expenditure we require $270k to reach this point. These projections can not be guaranteed.

In terms of new revenue, our product is now ready for market (albeit with plenty more we can add to increase the value of our proposition) and over the last 4 weeks we've started our outreach to new clients which has yielded multiple paid for and non-paid for trials with market leading brands. Without crowdfunding we will continue with our organic outreach program, however, with crowdfunding we believe we can radically scale our outreach and increase our pipeline dramatically. With our first client giving us positive feedback and being worth $6,000 MRR we do not need many clients to reach break even before the end of the year. In addition, two revenue share partnerships are waiting on our partners to go live in Q3 with significant potential revenues without commensurate supporting costs, which will make a disproportionately positive impact on our break even trajectory. These projections cannot be guaranteed.

We plan to cover short term burn through a combination of revenue from clients, VAT return, and the Innovate UK Grant rebate, which will cover us for the next quarter. Outside of funds we are raising in this offering, we are speaking to a number of angel investors and VC funds in parallel who are interested in investing.

Risks

1

The success of the Company will depend on its ability to compete for and retain additional qualified key personnel to enhance the growth. The Company's business would be adversely affected if it were unable to recruit qualified personnel when necessary or if it were to lose the services of certain key personnel and it were unable to locate suitable replacements in a timely manner. Finding and hiring such replacements, if any, could be costly and might require the Company to grant significant equity awards or incentive compensation, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial results and on your investment. The loss, through untimely death, unwillingness to continue or otherwise, of any such persons could have a materially adverse effect on the Company and its business.

2

In order to respond to market changes, the Company’s management may from time to time make changes to the business of the Company. There are certain risks associated with such changes. As a strategic response to changes in the competitive environment, the Company may from time to time make certain pricing, service or marketing decisions or business combinations that could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition.

3

We can provide no assurance that our current or potential competitors will not provide products or services comparable or superior to those provided by us or adapt more quickly than we do to evolving industry or market trends. Increased competition may result in price reductions, reduced gross margins and loss of market share, any of which would materially and adversely affect our business, prospects, financial condition or results of operations. We cannot assure investors that we will be able to compete effectively against current and future competitors.
