Overview
Friendablepublished its first mobile application in the Apple App Storeand Google Play Storein 2014 in the social networking and dating category. The Friendableapp achieved over 1.5 million downloads, top 10 worldwide rankings, and has led to celebrity-related marketing opportunities and various relationships with well-known music artists as well as up-and-coming independent artists.
Friendablehas since pivoted its business focus to its Music Artist Offering, a one of a kind 360 artist platform. The offering now includes music production/collaboration, music distribution (Spotify, Sound Cloud), Play Listing, Livestream/live events, promotions, ticket sales, behind the scenes, merchandising designs/store/ship, tips, fan interaction, subscription offerings and more, which all equal revenue sharing and earning for all music artists. It is the Company's goal to become the new launch point for Indie Artists, as well as Artists at all levels, as they build engagement, revenue, and fans/followers. The Fan Passlivestream artist platform was launched July 24, 2020. The platform has proven invaluable for artists and fans alike as performances shifted from the stage to the "digital screen". The Company has grown its product and services offerings to include a 360 suite of music artist services, completing this full spectrum solution with its acquisition of Artist Republik and FeaturedX in January 2022. Friendablewas founded by brothers Robert A. Rositano Jr. and Dean Rositano, who have more than 27 years of experience working together on technology-related ventures. 33 For more information,

Qu’est-ce que cela fait exactement?
For starters, Fan Pass breaks down the barrier between artists and fans, with artists broadcasting their events, concerts, and announcements to supporters directly from the Fan Pass mobile application or desktop. More importantly, it gives back to artists a way to remain relevant to their fan base and earn revenue, launch their careers without the debt and ownership created by cumbersome record labels and ultimately provides all the products, services, and support to develop revenues, brand, fan base, music distribution and production/collaboration for artists at any level of their career as well.
Fan Pass Liveoffers artists at all levels and genres, the opportunity to engage fans from one location, removing the need for multiple sharing platforms. It conveniently provides Exclusive Artist "Channels" jam-packed with all their relevant content from videos, photos, interviews, and past and upcoming events.
Alors que Fan Pass facture aux fans des frais de transaction minimes pour la vente de billets, les artistes conservent l’argent gagné sur la vente de billets. La gestion de la marchandise est également gérée par l’entreprise et une fois approuvée par l’artiste, toute la marchandise sera publiée au sein de la chaîne de l’artiste.
For artists there are tools available to help them "up their game" such as the creation of custom logos and merchandising, live chat options, promotional aids that provide the ability to live stream, post photos, audio, and video with ease. For subscribers, fans can browse for upcoming events, shop merchandising, search by music genre and create dashboards. They can also view notifications, discussions, and their favorite music artists in one app. While it's free for the artists to join, Fan Pass monetizes its business model by using an "ALL ACCESS VIP" Offering. Commencing with the release of Fan Pass v2.0 on
July 24, 2021, this offering is priced at a $2.99monthly subscription ( $25.99annual subscription), paid by fans through its website, Apple App Storeor Google Play Stores, with a three-day free trial. Fan Pass also offers an "Artist Pro" monthly subscription of $8.99which offers the "ALL ACCESS VIP", plus advanced dashboard analytics, merchandising store access and promotion of scheduled music events, On August 5, 2021, the Company announced the approval of the Fan Pass v2.0 livestream artist platform by both the Apple App and
Acquisition de l’entreprise Artist Republik
January 4, 2022, the Company completed its acquisition of substantially all the assets of Artist Republik, Inc.("Artist Republik"). Artist Republik is a subscription service specifically created for music artists to obtain music distribution on certain digital platforms (such as Spotify and Apple Music) and receipt of royalties from those platforms, together with providing a marketplace to purchase beats, obtain enhanced audio production and purchase access to playlists. Its decentralized platform allows independent music artists from around the world to take control of their own careers through networking, centralized resources, and AI-based management tools. Artist Republik has attracted approximately 100,000 artists to its offerings and has operating revenues from the sales of services. The Company acquired all of Artist Republik's customer lists, customers, back-end processes, name, trademarks, internet domains and other things necessary to carry on the business of Artist Republik. 34 In January, 2022 we also launched and released FeaturedX.com, a web property acquired as part of the Company's acquisition of Artist Republik, FeaturedX has thousands of artists currently available and is a place where artists can book a guest feature, co-write, MIDI composition or live instrumental tracking for artists releasing their next single or looking to extend reach and exposure by tapping into these available resources for music production and collaboration. While continuing to deliver a variety of expanded services to our artists, platforms, and offerings, FeaturedX has now taken center stage as our next service offering ready for growth. Working closely with Mr. O'Learyand Mr. Menig, the 2 original co-founders of Featured X, it was immediately clear that having them both on board as partners for our journey forward would be one of our keys to success. This said, we have been able to reach agreement with both O'Leary and Menig to join our team as partners as we focus on revenue, artists, and additional services growth on a platform that already has great momentum. Ryan "Tuck" O'Learyis a co-founder of FeaturedX and best known for slinging his bass around with "Texas Metal" powerhouse Fit For A King, and has added another ace to his ever-growing deck. In August 2020alongside his longtime friend Jeff Menig, O'Leary launched a new connective platform for creatives. FeaturedX is the first premier platform for connecting and working with your favorite artists from a multitude of genres. This is a dream team of the greatest artists in alternative music. Combining years of friendships and touring experience we built this as a community. Now teaming up with Fan Pass Live, FeaturedX is looking to continue expanding and growing an already stellar roster of creatives. Jeff Menigis a co-founder of FeaturedX and an entertainment industry professional with over 21 years of experience in band management, live events, merchandise, consulting, artist development, and marketing. His unrelentingly passionate and persistent entrepreneur makes precision focused usage of the diverse set of skills he's developed. Menig builds brands and bands for the social media age, optimizing the multiple opportunities for engagement, communication, and personal interaction for his clients. His keen attention to detail, from visual elements to messaging, makes him invaluable as he teams with Fan Pass Liveto grow the FeaturedX brand and services.

In August, 2022 the Company received notice from the Company's counsel that the "Business Division" of the
SEChad contracted counsel, in response to a routine amendment filed by the Company on July 21, 2022to its Regulation A offering, asserting the need to move away from any Regulation A offering that was not at a fixed price per share and/or was not an offering limiting conversion to common shares at a fixed price, and if the offering was not in compliance with Regulation A, the purchasers of the Series D Preferred Stock may have certain claims against the Company for rescission. The Company has advised all such holders and has obtained verbal confirmation from them that they will not seek rescission. The Company is in the process of obtaining written waivers from these investors. As of the date of this report the Company has obtained waivers from two of the total eight investors. Certain investors still hold Series D Preferred Stock and certain investors have already converted some shares of the Series D Preferred into common stock. Accordingly, as of September 30, 2022the Company has reclassified the Series D Preferred Stock of $311,260representing 31,126 Series D Preferred to temporary equity and has reclassified the common stock issued upon conversion of Series D Preferred Stock of $1,432,940representing 1,429,999,087 common shares to temporary equity relating to the six investors that have not yet provided written waivers as of the date of this report. The Artist Republik brand and business was the first to be damaged by the SEC'sdecision. The Company's ability to finance through it's "Qualified Regulation A" offering was halted by the SEC'sactions/requirement, as well as investor's ability to participate in the offering until such time the Company amends and re-files its Regulation A on a fixed per common share conversion price basis and has obtained SEC Qualification to that amendment. 35 Artist Republik had run a "Song of the Summer" or "SOTS" campaign for artist song submission to pay top 5 $1,000each for best Song of the Summer. The Company's cash flows from the Artist Republik business itself are not able to fully sustain operations and the Company relies upon investment capital for marketing promotions, growth, development, and technology deployments and, with the SECquestioning the Company's Regulation A offering which effectively halted ongoing funding efforts, the Company, has not been able to pay out these prize monies yet. In addition, the Artist Republik website, features, and functions are currently unavailable until such time the Company can raise capital again through its amended and re-qualified Regulation A offering, the intended 1 for 500 stock split becomes effective and it can successfully engage in alternative financing structures. In the interim and temporarily, the Company's current level of revenues from the Artist Republik business has significantly declined below management's original forecast for third and fourth quarter 2022 as a result of certain technologies that were inactive or not working correctly as inherited from the acquisition of Artist Republik. Additionally, the Company retained the Artist Republik founder and other key personnel that represented their specific knowledge and ability to integrate front end and back-end systems, servers and API's that are all needed for the interworking's of the Fan Pass Live "360" offering which is to include music distribution. Unfortunately, those retained following the transition and representations made prior, during and following the acquisition were not held or performed by the outside personnel retained. The Company's CTO continues to work diligently to unwind certain aspects of prior technologies while integrating in such a way that the Artist Republik services and offering can become live again in Q1 of 2023, as Management believes it is a significant draw for independent artists and becomes the initial "Front Door" or entry point for each artist to begin their journey with the Company and all its service offerings. Management further performed a quantitative assessment of the carrying value of goodwill of $830,268that arose from the January, 2022 acquisition of the Artist Republik business and determined that, as of September 30, 2022, it needed to be expensed in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Trésorerie nette fournie par les activités d’investissement
Pour les neuf mois se terminant
Trésorerie nette provenant des activités de financement
Our cash provided by financing activities of
$975,200for the nine month period ended September 30, 2022included cash from the issuance of Series D preferred stock under Regulation A of $879,200less finder's fees of $24,250, net proceeds from the issuance of Series C preferred stock of $ 53,750and proceeds of $66,500from the issuance of convertible notes. Our cash provided by financing activities of $2,237,815for the nine month period ended September 30, 2021included the issuance of Series C preferred stock sold for cash of $515,900proceeds from the issuance of Series D preferred stock under Regulation A of $1,610.000, less offering costs of $31,310, and net proceeds from the issuance of convertible notes of $358,500offset by a prepayment of convertible note
$ 116,500. The Company derives the majority of its financing by issuing Series C and Series D preferred stock to investors. The investors have the right to convert Series C preferred stock at a discount of 29% to the then market price into common shares of the Company after the requisite Rule 144 waiting period. Series D preferred stock had been immediately convertible into common stock at deep discounts ranging from 20% to 50% to the market until the Securities and Exchange Commissionfirst raised their concern in August 2022regarding this "at-the-market" convertibility and ruled that future of Series D preferred stock conversions to common stock must occur at a defined (to be determined) set
market price. Going Concern Following the
Securities and Exchange Commission'srequest to amend the Company's Regulation A offering, the Company had also entered a corporate action for its 500 for 1 reverse stock split. Such split has yet to be approved by FINRAas of the date of this filing. However, the Company expects notice for an effective date shortly. An effective date will trigger the Company's amended Regulation A filing, review and qualification by the SECwhich may enable the Company to resume capital raising efforts for the future growth objectives
of the business. 38 The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which implies that the Company would continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. As of
September 30, 2022, the Company has a working capital deficiency of $5,487,403has an accumulated deficit of $42,641,808and has a stockholder's deficit of $7,069,008after reclassification of temporary equity of $1,744,200and its operations continue to be funded primarily from sales of its stock. During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, including the expensing of goodwill due to impairment of $830,268, the Company had a net loss and net cash used in operations of $2,843,383and $1,232,478. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern for a period of twelve months from the issuance of this report. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company's ability to obtain the necessary financing through the issuance of convertible notes and equity instruments. The unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. Management plans to continue raising financing through equity sales of Series C and Series D Preferred stock, while intending to reduce and/or eliminate its convertible debt. No assurance can be given that any such additional financing will be available, or that it can be obtained on terms acceptable to the Company and its stockholders.
