Nature of organization


C-Bond Systems, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the "Company") is a materials development company and sole owner, developer and manufacturer of the patented C-Bond technology. The Company is engaged in the implementation of proprietary nanotechnology applications and processes to enhance properties of strength, functionality and sustainability of brittle material systems. The Company's present primary focus is in the multi-billion-dollar glass and window film industry with target markets in the United States and internationally. Additionally, the Company has expanded its product line to include disinfection products. The Company operates in two divisions: C-Bond Transportation Solutions, which sells a windshield strengthening water repellent solution as well as a disinfection product, and C-Bond Safety Solutions, which sells multi-purpose glass strengthening primer and window film mounting solutions, ballistic-resistant film systems and disinfection products.


On April 25, 2018, the Company (which was formerly known as West Mountain Alternative Energy, Inc.) and its subsidiary, WETM Acquisition Corp. ("Acquisition Sub") entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization, or the Merger Agreement with C-Bond Systems, LLC which was organized as a limited liability company in Texas and started business on August 7, 2013 and had three subsidiaries. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, on April 25, 2018, referred to as the Closing Date, the Acquisition Sub merged with and into C-Bond Systems, LLC, which was the surviving corporation. Accordingly, C-Bond Systems, LLC became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Any reference to contractual agreements throughout these footnotes may relate to C-Bond Systems Inc., or one of its subsidiaries.


The Merger was treated as a reverse merger and recapitalization of C-Bond Systems, LLC for financial reporting purposes since the C-Bond Systems LLC members retained an approximate 87% controlling interest in the post-merger consolidated entity. C-Bond Systems, LLC is considered the acquirer for accounting purposes, and the Company's historical financial statements before the Merger have been replaced with the historical financial statements of C-Bond Systems, LLC and Subsidiaries before the Merger in future filings with the SEC. The balance sheets at their historical cost basis of both entities are combined at the merger date and the results of operations from the merger date forward will include the historical results of C-Bond Systems, LLC and its subsidiaries and results of C-Bond Systems, Inc. from the merger date forward. The Merger was intended to be treated as a tax-free reorganization under Section 368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.


Basis of presentation and principles of consolidation


The Company's consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of its wholly-owned subsidiary, C-Bond Systems, LLC. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.


Going concern


These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. As reflected in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the Company had a net loss of $4,434,443 and $7,240,740 for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The net cash used in operations was $1,783,027 and $1,313,711 for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Additionally, the Company had an accumulated deficit, shareholders' deficit, and working capital deficit of $45,968,839, $3,167,220 and $1,414,268, respectively, on December 31, 2020. 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 date of this report. Management cannot provide assurance that the Company will ultimately achieve profitable operations or become cash flow positive or raise additional debt and/or equity capital. The Company is seeking to raise capital through additional debt and/or equity financings to fund its operations in the future. Although the Company has historically raised capital from sales of common shares and from the issuance of convertible promissory notes, there is no assurance that it will be able to continue to do so. If the Company is unable to raise additional capital or secure additional lending in the near future, management expects that the Company will need to curtail its operations. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
