Item 3.Source and Amount of Funds or Other Considerations

 

The Investment Entity expended an aggregate of approximately $3,096,778 of its own investment capital to acquire the securities of the Issuer held by the Investment Entity and disclosed in this Schedule 13D (the “Securities”).

 

Item 4.Purpose of Transaction

 

The Investment Entity acquired most of the Securities during 2016 and 2018, based on what are believed to be a series of misstatements and over-aggressive representations by the Issuer’s Chief Executive Officer Gerald Commissiong. The Reporting Persons believe that the subsequent decision of the Issuer to suspend its reporting obligations provided the Issuer to undertake a dramatic effort to divert corporate opportunities from the Issuer to other companies in which Mr. Commissiong had an interest, thus depriving the Reporting Persons and other creditors and shareholders the ability to receive value and a return on invested capital in the Issuer.

 

The Reporting Persons’ analysis shows that years of abysmal oversight by the Issuer’s Board of Directors, permitted management missteps, dismal operating performance, and a series of questionable transactions that have resulted in significant loss of economic and strategic value by the Issuer and a consequent deleterious effect on all investors and creditors of the Issuer.

 

The Reporting Persons are making this filing to, among other things, remind the Board that directors bear fiduciary responsibility to all shareholders and, in the case of an Issuer within the zone of insolvency or that is insolvent, to creditors of the Issuer. The Investment Entity, along with Dominion Capital LLC (“Dominion”) and Lorient Ventures Ltd (“Lorient”), have signed a Letter Agreement (as defined below) and thus may be deemed to be a group (the “Group”) for the purposes of Section 13(d)(3) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Act”). The Letter Agreement (as defined below) is described in Item 6 of this Schedule 13D and the attached Exhibit 99.1. Each member of the Group will file a separate Schedule 13D pursuant to Rule 13d-1(k)(2) under the Act containing its required information. No member of the Group assumes any responsibility for the information contained in the Schedule 13D filed by another member of the Group. Additionally, in the event that the Group shall be deemed to be the beneficial owners of all of the securities of the Issuer reported in the Schedule 13Ds filed by the members of the Group, none of the Reporting Persons shall be deemed to be the beneficial owners of the securities of the Issuer reported in the Schedule 13D of any other member of the Group, and each of the Reporting Persons expressly disclaims beneficial ownership of any securities of the Issuer other than those reported in this Schedule 13D.

 

 

 

 

The Reporting Persons, along with the other members of the Group, may also take other steps to increase shareholder value as well as pursue other plans or proposals that relate to, or would result in, any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a)-(j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. As an initial matter, the Group intends to send management of the Issuer a letter that details defaults on obligations and undertakings to the members of the Group, as well as breaches of fiduciary duty and taking of corporate opportunities to the Issuer in favor of other interests of Mr. Commissiong and others. For instance, on March 26, 2018, the Issuer and the members of the Group entered into certain tender exchange agreements, pursuant to which the Issuer issued to the Investment Entity a Senior Secured Convertible Note, dated March 26, 2018, in the original principal amount of $833,778.00 and an Unsecured Convertible Note, dated March 26, 2018, in the original principal amount of $2,013,000.00 (the “March 2018 Notes”). Despite the Issuer’s obligation to repay the March 2018 Notes by December 26, 2018 (at latest), the Issuer has failed to repay any amounts due under the March 2018 Notes. The Reporting Persons, along with the other members of the Group, are exploring rights and causes of action against, among others, Todos Medical Ltd. (“Todos”), a public company that Mr. Commissiong serves as Chief Executive Officer and director, and which has engaged in transactions of a questionable nature with the Issuer. For instance, SEC filings of Todos have disclosed that:

 

On February 27, 2019, we entered into a joint venture agreement with Amarantus, pursuant to which we issued Ordinary Share representing 19.99% of our then outstanding Ordinary Shares to Amarantus, in exchange for Amarantus transferring to us 19.99% of Breakthrough, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Amarantus, and for Amarantus assigning the License to Breakthrough. As part of the transaction, we agreed to provide working capital to Breakthrough to support Breakthrough’s operations. As part of the Breakthrough joint venture, we were granted an exclusive option, which was limited to an exercise period of 60 days from its date, to acquire the remaining 80.01% of Breakthrough from Amarantus. At our 2019 annual meeting of shareholders, our shareholders approved a resolution authorizing us to exercise our option to acquire the remaining 80.01% of Breakthrough from Amarantus in exchange for an additional 30% of our then issued and outstanding Ordinary Shares. While the Breakthrough option has not yet been exercised, the option has been extended by both parties and remains in effect. Our Chief Executive Officer, Gerald Commissiong, is also the Chief Executive Officer of Amarantus.

 

The Reporting Persons, along with the other members of the Group, intend to review their investment in the securities of the Issuer on a continuing basis. Depending on various factors including, without limitation, the Issuer’s financial position and investment strategy, the price levels of the shares, conditions in the securities markets and general economic and industry conditions, the Reporting Persons, along with other members of the Group, may in the future take such actions with respect to their investments in the Issuer as they deem appropriate including, without limitation, (i) having open communications with the Issuer’s management and board of directors in order to monitor their efforts to increase shareholder value and not squander or secrete Issuer resources, assets, or opportunities outside of Amarantus, (ii) pursuing litigation to enjoin corporate transactions that the Reporting Persons and/or other members of the Group believe have or may be designed to create value away from the Issuer’s current stakeholders for the benefit of management and other as-yet unidentified persons, (iii) seeking to elect a slate of directors to the Issuer’s board of directors who will better manage the affairs of the Issuer and not permit a destructive dissipation of its assets and corporate opportunities, and (iv) reviewing the Issuer’s securities filings for compliance with federal securities laws and, where appropriate, making referrals to the SEC. The response under Item 6 below is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 5.Interest in Securities of the Issuer

 

(a) (b)    As of 9:30 a.m., New York City time, on the date of this Schedule 13D, the Reporting Persons beneficially own an aggregate of 14,176,424 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock, all of which are held in the name of the Investment Entity. The Securities represent 4.99% of the Issuer’s Common Stock outstanding. Percentages of the Common Stock outstanding reported in this Schedule 13D are calculated based upon the 269,920,256 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of December 31, 2019, as reported in the Issuer’s Disclosure Statement Pursuant to the Pink Basic Disclosure Guidelines, filed by the Issuer with the OTC Market on July 29, 2020. Each of the Reporting Persons shares voting and dispositive power over the shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Investment Entity.

 

 

 

 

Additionally, the Investment Entity owns convertible securities of the Issuer and/or securities which may be exercised for additional shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock, which contain provisions limiting the beneficial ownership of the Investment Entity to 4.99% of the Issuer’s Common Stock outstanding. In the event that all of these beneficial ownership limitations were removed, which the Investment Entity could do at anytime by providing at least 61 days’ prior written notice to the Issuer, the beneficial ownership of each of the Reporting Persons could be increased to 365,186,085 shares of Common Stock or approximately 57.50% of the Issuer’s Common Stock outstanding.

 

As a result of entering into the Letter Agreement (as defined below), the Investment Entity and the other members of the Group may be deemed to have formed a “group” pursuant to Rule 13d-5(b)(1) promulgated under the Act. The Securities reported in this Schedule 13D do not include securities of the Issuer owned by Dominion or Lorient, each of which will file a separate Schedule 13D reporting, based solely on the information provided to the Reporting Persons by each of Dominion and Lorient, beneficial ownership of 14,176,424 shares of Common Stock (the “Dominion Shares”) and the beneficial ownership of 14,176,424 shares of Common Stock (the “Lorient Shares”), respectively. The Reporting Persons assume no responsibility for the information contained in the Schedule 13D of either Dominion or Lorient, or any amendment to either of such Schedule 13Ds.

 

As a result of the Letter Agreement, based solely on the information provided to the Reporting Persons by Dominion and Lorient, with respect to their respective reported beneficial ownership of the Issuer’s Common Stock, the Group may be deemed to beneficially own in the aggregate 14,176,424 shares of Common Stock, which represents approximately 4.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock; provided, however, that the Reporting Persons disclaim beneficial ownership with respect to any of the Dominion Shares or the Lorient Shares. Additionally, to the extent that any limitations on beneficial ownership are removed from securities held by all of the members of the Group and, based solely on information provided to the Reporting Persons by Dominion and Lorient, with respect to any beneficial ownership limitations included in securities of the Issuer held by them, the beneficial ownership of the Group could be increased to 1,472,806,799 shares of Common Stock or approximately 84.51% of the Issuer’s Common Stock outstanding; provided, however, that the Reporting Persons disclaim beneficial ownership with respect to any of the shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by Dominion and Lorient.

 

(c)None of the Reporting Persons has effected any transactions in the Common Stock of the Issuer in the past 60 days.

 

(d)Other than the Investment Entity, and except as set forth in this Schedule 13D, no other person is known to have the right to receive, or the power to direct the receipt of, dividends from or proceeds from the sale, of the Securities.

 

(e)Not applicable

 

 

 

 

Item 6.Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer

 

On October 2, 2020, the Investment Entity entered into an agreement (the “Letter Agreement”) with Dominion and Lorient to coordinate certain efforts with respect to their investments in the Issuer. The Letter Agreement provides that Dominion will take the lead on all activities related to the Group’s pursuit of the collection efforts on behalf of the several institutional investors including: (i) the making, revising or withdrawing of any proposals to the Issuer regarding the conduct of its business, corporate governance matters, corporate transactions or otherwise; (ii) the conduct or settlement of any proxy contest, consent solicitation or similar actions involving the Issuer; (iii) the manner, form, content and timing of any communications with the Issuer as well as any public disclosures, public statements or other public communications, in each case relating to the Issuer, the Letter Agreement or the activities contemplated by the Letter Agreement (except to the extent such disclosure is required by applicable law); (iv) the conduct of any litigation or investigation related to the Issuer or the activities contemplated by the Letter Agreement, involving the Issuer, its Board, members of management, and any third-party recipients of assets or value that has been illegally or improperly directed away from the Issuer; and (v) otherwise seeking to change or influence the management, directors, governing instruments, stockholders, policies or affairs of the Issuer.

 

Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, the Investment Entity, Dominion and Lorient have each acknowledged and agreed that none of them has any interest in the profits or losses of any other member of the Group, in connection with its acquisition or disposition of any securities of the Company. Additionally, none of the members of the Group have entered into any voting agreements or similar arrangement, among themselves, and no member of the Group has any voting rights or dispositive power over any securities of the Issuer held by any other member of the Group.
