NOTE 5 - Subsequent Events


On October 13, 2023, the Company raised $772,468 in net proceeds by selling 128,887 common shares pursuant to its ATM Agreement.


On October 6, 2023, the Company entered into a definitive asset purchase agreement (“APA”) with Divergent Technologies, Inc., or Divergent, pursuant to which have agreed to sell to Divergent, and Divergent has agreed to purchase from us, certain assets consisting primarily of patents, software code and other intellectual property for a purchase price of $1,626,242, including a $37,000 earnest-money deposit previously paid to us by Divergent.


The parties’ respective obligations to close are subject to the accuracy of the parties’ respective representations and warranties and performance of their respective covenants and satisfaction or waiver of other customary conditions specified in the Asset Purchase Agreement.


The Asset Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties which will survive for one year following the closing. The Asset Purchase Agreement also contains restrictive covenants regarding the conduct of our business pending the closing.


In the interim, between the signing date and closing date or termination of the Asset Purchase Agreement, we have granted Divergent a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable (except to Divergent customers and affiliates), limited, irrevocable (except in connection with the termination of the Asset Purchase Agreement in certain circumstances), worldwide, royalty-free license to the “Licensed IP” (as defined) for testing, evaluation, and commercialization purposes.


On October 12, 2023, the Company entered into a definitive Share Exchange Agreement for the acquisition of NextTrip Holdings, Inc., a travel technology company based in Sunrise, Florida (“NextTrip”). Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, Sigma will acquire 100% of the capital stock of NextTrip in exchange for shares of Sigma common stock constituting 19.99% of its outstanding common stock plus additional contingent shares of Sigma common stock upon the achievement of post-closing milestones tied to the business performance of NextTrip. Assuming all business milestones are achieved, the equity owners of NextTrip will receive a total of 6 million shares of our common stock, resulting in existing Sigma holders retaining, on a pro forma basis, approximately 9.8% of the total outstanding shares immediately following the issuance of such shares.


The parties’ respective obligations to close the Acquisition are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of various conditions specified in the Share Exchange Agreement. The conditions include approval by Sigma shareholders of the issuance of the Exchange Shares as required by applicable listing standards of The Nasdaq Capital Market, or Nasdaq, amendments to our amended and restated articles of incorporation to change our name and to increase our authorized common stock, and the continued listing or our common stock on Nasdaq, as well as customary other closing conditions.



The Share Exchange Agreement contains representations and warranties and covenants of the parties customary for a transaction of this nature which will not survive the closing of the Acquisition. The Share Exchange Agreement also contains customary covenants regarding the conduct of the respective businesses of Sigma and NextTrip pending the closing of the Acquisition. The Share Exchange Agreement permits us to sell our quality assurance software assets at or after the closing of the Acquisition as contemplated by our Asset Purchase Agreement with Divergent Technologies, Inc.


Both transactions are expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2023, subject to shareholder approvals and other customary closing conditions.


On October 6, 2023, Nasdaq Listing Qualifications (“Nasdaq”) notified the Company that it had regained compliance with the minimum bid price Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) as the Company’s closing bid price of its common stock had been at or greater than $1.00 per share for ten consecutive business days following the effective date of the Company’s reverse stock split. Nasdaq further notified the Company that the matter is closed.


On August 17, 2023, the Company received notice from Nasdaq that because our stockholders’ equity as of June 30, 2023 was $2,391,289, we no longer comply with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1), which requires companies listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market to maintain minimum stockholders’ equity of $2,500,000, and do not meet the alternatives of market value of listed securities or net income from continuing operations. The notice stated that under Nasdaq Rules, we have 45 calendar days to submit a plan to regain compliance and that if our plan is accepted, Nasdaq can grant us an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the date of the notice to evidence compliance.


On October 2, 2023, the Company submitted its plan to regain compliance to Nasdaq and requested an extension to February 13, 2024 to evidence compliance with the Rule and all other applicable criteria for continued listing on Nasdaq.


On October 23, 2023, Nasdaq informed the Company that based on the submission, it had granted the requested extension until February 13, 2024 to demonstrate compliance with the Rule. Nasdaq further informed the Company that if the Company fails to evidence compliance upon filing its periodic report for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 with the SEC and Nasdaq, the Company may be subject to delisting.
