To the Board of Directors and
Members of AdRizer LLC
Opinion on the Consolidated Financial Statements
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of AdRizer LLC (the Company) as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, and the related consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss), changes in members’ deficit, and cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended December 31, 2021, and the related consolidated notes (collectively referred to as the consolidated financial statements). In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended December 31, 2021, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
Basis for Opinion
These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s consolidated 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 consolidated 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 Company’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 consolidated 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 consolidated 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 consolidated financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

Notes to the Consolidated financial statements
Note 1 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Nature of Business:
AdRizer LLC (“Adrizer” or the “Company”) was formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on March 9, 2017. AdRizer is an advertising agency that drives traffic to clients’ websites and measures the profitability of that traffic by utilizing the Company’s proprietary analytics software, Cortex.
In June 2021 the Company formed Site Spin Off, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary, for the sole purpose of acquiring intangible assets (Note 3).
Basis of Accounting:
The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.
Cash:
In the normal course of business, the Company may maintain cash held at financial institutions in excess of the federally insured limits. Accounts at each institution are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) subject to various limits and conditions. The Company has not experienced any losses from maintaining cash accounts in excess of federally insured limits and believes it is not exposed to any significant credit risk with respect to this practice.
Fair Value Measurements:
Certain assets and liabilities of the Company are carried at fair value under U.S. GAAP. Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. Financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value are to be classified and disclosed in one of the following three levels of the fair value hierarchy, of which the first two are considered observable and the last is considered unobservable:
The Company’s financial instruments consist of accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses, debt and stock appreciation rights liability. The carrying value of accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate their fair value because of their short maturities. The Company believes the carrying amount of its debt approximates fair value based on rates and other terms currently available to the Company for similar debt instruments. The fair value of the stock appreciation rights liability is classified as level three of the fair value hierarchy.
Accounts Receivable:
Accounts receivable are stated at the amount management expects to collect from outstanding balances. Management provides for probable uncollectible amounts through a charge to earnings and a credit to a valuation allowance based on its assessment of the current status of individual accounts. Balances that are still outstanding after management has used reasonable collection efforts are written off through a charge to the valuation allowance and a credit to trade accounts receivable. Management believes that all of the accounts receivable are collectible and has not provided for uncollectible amounts.
Property and Equipment:
Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method to depreciate the cost over the assets’ useful life for financial reporting purposes and on the accelerated method for income tax purposes. The Company has established a capitalization policy where additions and betterments greater than $2,000 are capitalized. Costs of maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.
Website development is amortized using straight line depreciation over a 3 year life. This asset was fully amortized at December 31, 2020.
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets:
The Company evaluates the recoverability of its long-lived assets in accordance withFinancial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 360 Property, Plant, and Equipment.The Company reviews long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of long-lived assets are measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset, undiscounted and without interest or independent appraisals. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the assets.
Revenue Recognition:
The Company adopted FASB Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and its related amendments (collectively known as “ASC 606”), effective January 1, 2019. The Company determines revenue recognition through the following steps:
Revenue is recognized when performance obligations are satisfied through the transfer of control of promised goods or services to the Company’s customers in an amount that reflects the consideration expected to be received in exchange for transferring goods or services to customers. Control transfers once a customer has the ability to direct the use of, and obtain substantially all of the benefits from, the product. This includes the transfer of legal title, physical possession, the risks and rewards of ownership, and customer acceptance.
The Company purchases traffic from third party providers. The Company generates revenue by charging their clients for traffic and client specific traffic management fee. AdRizer built a proprietary software which provides real-time analytics. Utilizing the Company’s software, the Company’s media buyers create, deploy and manage ad campaigns to ensure a profitable return of revenue to the client.
FASB ASC 606 requires an entity to determine whether it is a principal (recognizes revenue at the gross amount) or an agent (recognizes revenue at the net amount) for each promised good or service. Based on the FASB guidance, the Company has determined that it is the principal for each promised good or service, thus, revenue is recognized at the gross amount of the transactions. Revenue from traffic sales and traffic management services are generally recognized at the end of each month when the performance obligation is satisfied. In June 2021 the Company entered into an agreement with a customer involving inventory monetization management. Based on the FASB guidance, the Company has determined that it is the principal in relation to this business model. Revenue from monetization services are generally recognized at the end of each month when the performance obligation is satisfied.
Cost of Revenue:
Cost of revenue includes the cost of traffic acquisition, web service costs, and customer support payroll costs.
Use of Estimates:
The preparation of consolidated financial statements in accordance 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 consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results may differ from those estimates.
Comprehensive Income (Loss):
The Company follows FASB ASC 220 in reporting comprehensive income (loss). Comprehensive income (loss) is a more inclusive financial reporting methodology that includes disclosure of certain financial information that historically has not been recognized in the calculation of net income (loss). Since the Company has no items of other comprehensive income (loss), comprehensive income (loss) is equal to net income (loss) for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020.
Income Taxes:
The Company is a limited liability company that is treated as a partnership for income tax purposes. Accordingly, under the Internal Revenue Code, all taxable income or loss flows through to the members of the Company and is reported directly on their tax returns. Therefore, no income tax expense or benefit is recorded in the consolidated financial statements of the Company. The Company is subject to routine audits by taxing jurisdictions; however, there are currently no audits for any tax periods in progress.
Accounting Pronouncements Recently Adopted
Debt with Conversion and Other Options
In August 2020, FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt-Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity. ASU 2020-06 simplifies the guidance in U.S. GAAP on the issuer’s accounting for convertible debt instruments. The new guidance removes from U.S. GAAP the separation models for (1) convertible debt with a CCF and (2) convertible instruments with a BCF. As a result, after adopting the ASU’s guidance, entities will not separately present in equity an embedded conversion feature in such debt. Instead, they will account for a convertible debt instrument wholly as debt, and for convertible preferred stock wholly as preferred stock. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023 and early adoption is allowed. The Company early adopted this guidance as of January 1, 2020. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted
Leases
In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which updates the accounting guidance for leases. This standard introduces a lessee model requiring lessees to recognize a right-of-use asset and lease liability on the balance sheet for both finance (capital) and operating leases and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. FASB ASU 2016-02 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2021. Early application of the amendment is permitted. This pronouncement is not yet applicable to the Company and therefore has not adopted this guidance and is currently evaluating the impact of adoption.
Reclassifications
Certain reclassifications were made to the reported amounts in these financial statements as of December 31, 2020 to conform to the presentation as of December 31, 2021.

Such government-imposed precautionary measures may have been relaxed in certain countries or states, but there is no assurance that more strict measures will be put in place again due to a resurgence in COVID-19 cases.
