Biopower Operations Corp (Ticker: BOPO) has recently reported in their SEC filing that the company issued a senior promissory note with a principal amount of $1 million to China Energy Partners (CEP) on June 29, 2021. This move is part of a redemption agreement where the company’s Series A preferred stock, held in escrow, is returned to CEP in the event of default on the senior promissory note. The agreement allows CEP to regain all rights, title, and interest in the Series A preferred stock when the default occurs, regardless of the outstanding balance owed under the note at that time.
This development follows a series of significant financial transactions, including the issuance of 17.5 million Tokens in exchange for the Membership Program and various debt agreements with related parties. Furthermore, the company reported an increase in deferred revenue amounting to $375,000. It’s noteworthy that Biopower Operations Corp’s revenues have witnessed considerable growth, with total revenues amounting to $571,700 for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2022, compared to $175,000 in the previous fiscal year.
Challenges in Financial Health
Despite these promising figures, Biopower Operations Corp continues to struggle with consistent losses from operations and a significant accumulated deficit. As of November 30, 2022, the company’s accumulated deficit stood at $10,349,524, an increase from $9,556,990 reported for the same period in 2021. The auditor’s report in the SEC filing raises concerns about the organization’s ability to continue as a going concern due to the recurring losses from operations and negative cash flows.
Furthermore, the company’s current liabilities have also increased in the last fiscal year – from $5,507,151 as of November 30, 2021, to $5,953,792 as of November 30, 2022. This increase in liabilities can be attributed to various factors, including an increase in accounts payable to related parties, a newly incurred convertible debt with a variable-priced conversion, and a derivative liability. It should be noted that, as of November 30, 2022, the total assets owned by the company amounted to merely $14,049, a significant reduction compared to $95,973 reported in the previous fiscal year.
While the company might be seeing growth in revenues, its financial health appears far from stable. Its total operating expenses have also seen a sharp increase from $461,263 in 2021 to $1,163,484 in 2022, further contributing to the company’s net losses. It’s important to mention that the net loss per common share was reported at $0.02 for the fiscal year ended on November 30, 2022, compared to $0.01 in the previous year.
Striving for Growth and Profitability
The recent activities of Biopower Operations Corp seem to indicate a striving for growth and profitability. The issuance of the senior promissory note to CEP and redeeming the Series A preferred stock may be seen as a strategic move to access much-needed funds for the company’s operations. However, given the current financial standing of the organization, its future depends on effective management and successful implementation of plans to address the substantial concerns about its ability to continue as a going concern.
