NOTE 6 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

Preferred Shares

On October 7, 2013, the Company amended its articles of incorporation to create 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock by filing a Certificate of Amendment to Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of Nevada. The preferred stock may be divided into and issued in series, with such designations, rights, qualifications, preferences, limitations and terms as fixed and determined by our board of directors.

Grant of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock

On March 30, 2016, the Company designated 3,000,000 shares of the authorized and unissued preferred stock of our company as “Series C Preferred Stock” by filing a Certificate of Designation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada. Each share of the Series C Preferred Stock will be convertible, without the payment of any additional consideration by the holder and at the option of the holder, into one fully paid and non-assessable share of our common stock at any time after (i) the Company achieves consolidated revenue equal to or greater than $15,000,000 in any 12 month period, ending on the last day of any quarterly period of our fiscal year; or (ii) a Negotiated Trigger Event, defined as an event upon which the Series C Preferred Stock will be convertible as may be agreed by our company and the holder in writing from time to time.

Effective March 31, 2016, the Company issued a total of 3,000,000 shares of our Series C Preferred Stock to Steven Nickolas and Richard Wright ( 1,500,000 shares to each), pursuant to their employment agreements dated effective March 1, 2016. Mr. Nickolas converted his 1,500,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock to Common Stock on July 11, 2017. Mr. Wright continues to hold his 1,500,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock.

Grant of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock

On May 3, 2017, the Company designated 3,000,000 shares of the authorized and unissued preferred stock of our company as “Series D Preferred Stock” by filing a Certificate of Designation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada.

On November 2, 2017, we increased the number of authorized shares of Series D Preferred Stock in our company to 5,000,000 shares by filing an Amendment to the foregoing Certificate of Designation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada. Each share of the Series D Preferred Stock will be convertible, without the payment of any additional consideration by the holder and at the option of the holder, into one fully paid and nonassessable share of our common stock at any time after (i) we achieve the consolidated revenue of our company and all of its subsidiaries equal to or greater than $40,000,000 in any 12 month period, ending on the last day of any quarterly period of our fiscal year; or (ii) a Negotiated Trigger Event, defined as an event upon which the Series D Preferred Stock will be convertible as may be agreed by our company and the holder in writing from time to time.

In May, 2017, the company issued a total of 3,000,000 shares of our Series D Preferred Stock to our directors, officers, consultants and employees. In November, 2017, the company issued an additional 800,000 shares of our Series D Preferred Stock as follows: (a) 300,000 shares to Steve Nickolas pursuant to the Settlement Agreement detailed below; and (b) 500,000 shares to Richard A. Wright pursuant to the Exchange Agreement and stock option forfeitures detailed below. We issued these shares relying on the registration exemption provided for in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933.

Common Stock

Upon incorporation in 2011, the Company was authorized to issue 75,000,000 shares of $0.001 par value common stock. On May 31, 2013, the Company effected a 15 -for- 1 forward stock split of our $0.001 par value common stock. All shares and per share amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect such split. Prior to the acquisition of Alkaline Water Corp., the Company had 109,500,000 shares of common stock issued and outstanding. On May 31, 2013, the Company issued 43,000,000 shares in exchange for a 100% interest in Alkaline Water Corp. For accounting purposes, the acquisition of Alkaline Water Corp. by The Alkaline Water Company Inc. has been recorded as a reverse acquisition of a company and recapitalization of Alkaline Water Corp. based on the factors demonstrating that Alkaline Water Corp. represents the accounting acquirer. Consequently, after the closing of this agreement the Company adopted the business of Alkaline Water Corp.’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Alkaline 88, LLC. As part of the acquisition, the former management of the Company agreed to cancel 75,000,000 shares of common stock.

On December 30, 2015, the Company effected a fifty for one reverse stock split of its authorized and issued and outstanding shares of common stock. As a result, the authorized common stock has decreased from 1,125,000,000 shares of common stock, with a par value of $0.001 per share, to 22,500,000 shares of common stock, with a par value of $0.001 per share. All shares and per share amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect such split.

On January 21, 2016, stockholders of our company approved, by written consents, an amendment to the articles of incorporation of our company to increase the number of authorized shares of our common stock from 22,500,000 to 200,000,000.

The Company received written consents representing 20,776,000 votes from the holders of shares of its common stock and our Series A Preferred Stock voting as a single class, representing approximately 61% of the voting power of its outstanding common stock and its outstanding Series A Preferred Stock voting as a single class as of the record date (January 12, 2016). On January 21, 2016, there were no written consents received by the Company representing a vote against, abstention or broker non-vote with respect to the proposal.

Private Placement

On May 30, 2018, we completed private placements of an aggregate of 5,131,665 units of our securities at a price of US$0.75 per unit for aggregate gross proceeds of US$3,848,748.75. Each unit consisted of one share of our common stock and one-half of one share purchase warrant, with each whole share purchase warrant entitling the holder to acquire one additional share of our common stock at a price of US$0.90 per share for a period of two years.

Of the 5,131,665 units we issued: (i) 906,666 units were issued pursuant to the exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended provided by Section 4(a)(2) and/or Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended to four investors who were “accredited investors” within the respective meanings ascribed to that term in Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended; and (ii) 4,224,999 units were issued to 26 non-U.S. persons (as that term is defined in Regulation S of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended) in an offshore transaction relying on Regulation S and/or Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

On September 27, 2018, the Company issued 1,619,947 units at a price of CDN$2.50 per unit for aggregate gross proceeds of CDN$4,049,867 in connection with a private placement. Each unit consists of one share of common stock of the Company and one non-transferable share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional share of common stock of the Company at a price of CDN$2.90 per share for a period of two years. The Company paid finder’s fees of CDN$165,630 and issued 66,210 finder’s warrants in connection with the private placement resulting in an expense of $131,030. Each finder’s warrant is non-transferable and entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional share of common stock of the Company at a price of CDN$2.90 per share for a period of two years.

In connection with the private placement, we agreed with each subscriber who purchased units to prepare and file a registration statement with respect to (i) the shares of our common stock comprising these units and (ii) the shares of our common stock issuable upon exercise of the share purchase warrants comprising these units with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or before November 30, 2018 and agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to have the registration statement declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission as soon as possible after filing.
