OriginClear, Inc.("we", "us", "our", the "Company" or "OriginClear") was incorporated on June 1, 2007under the laws of the State of Nevada. We have been engaged in business operations since June 2007. In 2015, we moved into the commercialization phase of our business plan having previously been primarily involved in research, development and licensing activities. Our principal offices are located at 13575 58th Street North, Suite 200, Clearwater, FL33760. Our main telephone number is (727) 440-4603. Our website address is www.OriginClear.com. The information contained on, connected to or that can be accessed via our website is not part of this report. Overview of Business OriginClearis a company that today, develops unique water assets for eventual launch as their own companies. This new role was indicated water technology company which has developed in-depth capabilities over the eight years since it began to operate in the water industry.
Pursuant to this new mission,

The brand, Modular Water Systems (MWS), featuring products differentiated by the Early IP and complemented with additional knowhow and trade secrets. MWS is in commercial operation and operates as a division of
Progressive Water Treatment, Inc.("PWT"), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company based in McKinney, Texas. The Company is currently developing MWS as a discrete line of business for an eventual spinoff. In addition, the Company intends to separate the
Station product line as a standalone business. 26 ? PWT is responsible for a significant percentage of the company's revenue, specializing in engineered water treatment solutions and custom treatment systems. We believe that PWT has knowhow with intellectual property potential.
called Water On Demand ("WOD"). o The WOD model intends to offer private businesses water self-sustainability as a service - the ability to pay for water treatment and purification services on a per-gallon basis. This is commonly known as Design-Build-Own-Operate or "DBOO". o Four subsidiaries have been established to house capital dedicated to this program ("the WOD Subsidiaries"). For efficiency, the Company is reorganizing these subsidiaries into a single WOD Subsidiary. o On
April 13, 2022, the Company's Board of Directors approved the plan to spin off its Water On Demand business into a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary, Water On Demand Inc.("WODI"), which will hold the assets, liabilities, intellectual property and business operations of the Water On Demand business. WODI is designed to select projects, fully qualify them, provide financing for DBOO service contracts, and thereafter manage assets, contracts, clients, investors, strategic partners and vendors. As they are subject to a security guaranty by the Company, the WOD Subsidiaries, and the capital raised for them through the Company's Series Y offering, shall continue to be held by the Company. This capital will be made available to WODI to be deployed, subject to a planned management contract. Developing Water Businesses The Company develops and incubates businesses in its role as the Clean Water Innovation Hub™ ("CWIB"). The mission of CWIB in general, is to create valuable properties through an incubation process that results in the launching of valuable spinoffs that add value to the world's water industry. The first such spinoff was on April 13, 2022, when the Company's Board of Directors approved the plan to spin off its Water On Demand business into a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary, Water On Demand Inc., which will hold the assets, liabilities, intellectual property and business operations of the Water On Demand business.
Further businesses can be expected to be spun off, as the Company announced on
“The launch of Water on Demand is the first of several anticipated business
property spinoffs. Other Company business properties include Modular Water
Systems, which owns a master license to five key international patents for
prefabricated, highly-durable modular water treatment and pumping products.
Being a proprietary technology, MWS frequently qualifies as “Basis of Design”
for projects, which means that competitors cannot easily undercut MWS.”
CWIB’s ongoing operations include:
1. Building a line of customer-facing water brands to expand global market presence and technical expertise. These include the wholly-owned subsidiary,
Progressive Water Treatment, Inc., and the Modular Water Systems brand. 27 2. Managing relationships with partners worldwide who are licensees and business partners. 3. Developing the capability of partners to build systems and to deliver Operation & Maintenance ("O&M") capability at scale, to support Water On Demand outsourced treatment and purification programs. 4. Continue to study the streamlining of water assets and royalties through the blockchain, as part of the $H2O™ concept. At this time there is no plan to actively develop a blockchain-based asset. 5. Prepare properties for eventual spinoff. On July 8, 2022, the Company announced that it booked combined purchase orders in excess of $5 millionin the first nine months of 2022, more than double the order volume for the comparable period in 2021.

October 18, 2022, the Company announced that its pump station product line is showing commercial success. Known as EveraMOD in the Modular Water Systems (MWS) lineup, this durable, modular system is being adopted by customers, often as a simple yet vital retrofit for existing, obsolete installations.
In addition, the Company indicated that it may spin off EveraMOD as its next
independent company as part of CWIB.
October 25, 2022, the Company announced that it entered an Equity Financing Agreement with GHS Investments(GHS). Pursuant to the Agreement, GHS has agreed to purchase up to $25.0 millionin registered common stock, with timing and amounts of the purchases to be determined at the sole discretion of the Company. On November 7, 2022, the Company announced that it retained The Basile Law Firm, P.C.(www.thebasilelawfirm.com), to explore a potential business combination with a NASDAQ-listed Special Purpose Acquisition Corporation(SPAC). OriginClearcautions that a specific SPAC has not been definitively identified, the prospective terms are unknown, and there is no assurance any transaction may occur. Milestones

years now compete with precast concrete.
April 15, 2021, the Company announced that its Progressive Water Treatment division is now shipping BroncBoost™, its workhorse Booster Pump Stationequipment line. Engineered and built in Texas, BroncBoost allows customers to control water flow rates and pressure for mission critical water distribution systems. On August 25, 2021, PWT entered into a Master Services Agreement (MSA) with a large US public utility company for water filtration systems that will provide process water at three power plants. The utility issued a purchase order for approximately $1.8 million, for the first power plant. The total purchase price payable to PWT under the MSA is approximately $5 million, subject to certain conditions, including receipt and acceptance by PWT of additional purchase orders. We expect the overall contract to take up to two years to deliver from the date of the MSA. Modular Water Systems On June 22, 2018, OriginClearsigned an exclusive worldwide licensing agreement with Daniel "Dan" Early P. E. for his proprietary technology for prefabricated water transport and treatment systems. On July 19, 2018, the Company began incubating its Modular Water Treatment Division (MWS) around Mr. Early'stechnology and perspective customers. The Company has funded the development of this division with internal cash flow. In Q1 of 2020, the Company fully integrated MWS with wholly-owned Progressive Water Treatment Inc.The Company is currently developing MWS as a discrete line of business for an eventual spinoff. Mr. Earlycurrently serves as Chief Engineer for OriginClear. On July 19, 2018, the Company launched its Modular Water Treatment Division, offering a unique product line of prefabricated water transport and treatment systems. Daniel "Dan" Early P.E. (Professional Engineer) heads the Modular Water Systems ("MWS") division. On June 25, 2018, Dan Earlygranted the Company a worldwide, exclusive non-transferable license to the technology and knowhow behind MWS (See "Intellectual Property"). A ten-year renewal on May 20, 2020added the right to sublicense and create manufacturing joint ventures. On July 25, 2018, MWS received its first order, for a brewery wastewater treatment plant. With PWT and other companies as fabricators and assemblers, MWS designs, manufactures and delivers prefabricated water transport (pump and lift stations) under the EveraMOD™ brand; and wastewater treatment plant ("WWTP") products under the EveraSKID™ and EveraTREAT™ brands to customers and end-users which are required to clean their own wastewater, such as schools, small communities, institutional facilities, real estate developments, factories, and industrial parks.

July 25, 2022the Company announced that decentralized water treatment, long pioneered by OriginClear'sModular Water Systems™ (MWS), is now being mandated by major US cities to recycle water in large new buildings. On August 12, 2022the Company announced the inaugural delivery and installation of its pre-engineered EveraBOX™ to implement a low-risk Liquid Ammonium Sulfate (LAS) disinfectant system for Pennsylvania's Beaver Falls Municipal Water Authority(BFMA). Typical of MWS products, EveraBOX is manufactured using inexpensive, long-lasting High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) or Polypropylene (PP) materials. These materials have proven to be less affected by supply chain issues currently impacting metal and fiberglass construction. 29
Water on Demand™: a new strategic direction.
OriginClearis also developing a new outsourced water treatment business called "Water On Demand": or "WOD" as a potential revenue source. The WOD model intends to offer private businesses the ability to pay for water treatment and purification services on a per-gallon basis. This is commonly known as Design-Build-Own-Operate or "DBOO". On April 13, 2021, we announced formation of a wholly-owned subsidiary called Water On Demand #1, Inc. ("WOD #1") to pursue capitalization of the equipment required. The WOD Subsidiaries, Water On Demand #2, Inc. ("WOD #2"), Water On Demand #3, Inc. ("WOD #3"), Water On Demand #4, Inc. ("WOD #4") were separately created to permit optional segmenting of capital pools according to strategic partnerships. The Company is now simplifying this structure by placing all funds in WOD #1 and tracking the partnerships within that company. As they are subject to a security guaranty by the Company, the WOD Subsidiaries, and the capital raised for them through the Company's Series Y offering, shall continue to be held by the Company. This capital will be made available to WODI to be deployed, subject to a planned management contract.
The Company intends to pilot a first DBOO contract and thereafter, work with
regional water service companies to build and operate the water treatment
systems it finances. Additional financing hubs could be set up in world
Delegating the building and operating of WOD-financed systems to regional water companies under performance contract, with the aim of developing a network of such partners, is expected to enable rapid scale-up of the WOD program, and the partner network would create a high barrier to entry for competitors. On
April 13, 2022, the Company's Board of Directors approved the plan to spin off its Water On Demand business into a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary, Water On Demand Inc., which will hold the assets, liabilities, intellectual property and business operations of the Water On Demand business. The Company stipulates that it has excluded the WOD Subsidiaries, and all capital already raised and to be raised in the future in its Series Y offering, from this assignment of assets and will make the capital available as part of a planned management contract. The Company intends to also register a Regulation A offering by WODI which is intended to accumulate capital for WODI to direct toward WOD projects. To enable rapid scaling, WODI does not initially intend to build, maintain or service the water treatment systems it finances, but instead contract with regional water service companies to carry out these functions. On April 6, 2022, an agreement in principle was reached to work with the first of these intended contractors, Envirogen Technologies(www.envirogen.com), a 30-year international provider of environmental technology and process solutions (www.originclear.com/company-news/originclear-and-envirogen-to-partner-on-water-on-demand). Future resources to build, maintain and service these financed systems may come from acquisitions; however, these are not actively being planned. At the time of this filing, WODI had no staff or independent resources. Under a prospective management services contract, OCLN is providing all staffing and administrative resources, as well as access to the funds it has raised for WOD investments. 30 Market Opportunity On a global basis, only twenty percent (20%) of all sewage and thirty percent (30%) of all industrial waste are ever treated. Water leakage results in the loss of thirty-five percent (35%) of all clean water across the planet. Cutting that number in half would provide clean water for 100 million people. This is a situation of great danger, but also great potential. We believe businesses can no longer rely on giant, centralized water utilities to meet the challenge. That is why more and more business users are doing their own water treatment and recycling. Whether by choice or necessity, those businesses that invest in onsite water systems gain a tangible asset on their business and real estate and can enjoy better water quality at a lower cost, especially if treated water is recycled. We believe self-reliant businesses are quietly building "decentralized water wealth" for themselves while also helping their communities. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing guidelines, which drive about a quarter of all professionally managed assets around the world, specifically include the key factor of how well corporations manage water. As civil infrastructure ages and fails and as the costs for new and replacement infrastructure increase year over year, we believe engineers and end-users will search for new ways and methods of deploying water and wastewater systems that are less expensive to deliver and much less expensive to own and operate with the mission intent of substantially increasing the replacement intervals currently experienced by conventional materials of construction and conventional product delivery models.
Reducing Risk through Outsourcing
Inflation of water rates greatly exceeds core inflation (see Figure 2), creating a risk for managers of businesses served by municipalities. We believe this creates an incentive for self-treatment; but these businesses may lack the capital for large water plant expenditures, and the in-house expertise to manage them. Outsourcing through what we call Water on Demand™ means that these companies do not have to worry about the problem, either financing it or managing it. As an example, in information technology, few companies operate their own server in-house powering their website. Rather, such servers are typically managed by professionals through a service level agreement. In the water industry, when applied to outsourced water treatment, a service level agreement is known as O&M agreement. When the vendor retains ownership of the equipment, the concept is expanded to "Own and Operate", an extension of the basic "Design and Build", for a full offering known as DBOO, which is very similar to the solar energy programs known as Power Purchase Agreements ("PPAs"). Under such a plan, a business can outsource its wastewater treatment by simply signing on the dotted line; instantly avoiding most capital expense, and the trouble of managing something that is a distraction from their core business. We believe this is financially and operationally attractive to industrial, agricultural and commercial water users, while
OriginClear'sWater On Demand program can potentially drive speeded-up deals and more revenue streams from providing water treatment as a service. 31
The Decentralization Megatrend
[[Image Removed]] Figure 1 An updated report of
October 2018, "Public Spending on Transportation and Water Infrastructure, 1956 to 2017" (www.cbo.gov/system/files?file=2018-10/54539-Infrastructure.pdf), stated that The Federal Government's and State and Local Governments' Spending on Water Utilities, including water supply and wastewater treatment facilities, was $4 billionin 2016 - a drop of about $13 billionsince 1976! As municipalities continue to be underfunded (Figure 1) with rising water rates (Figure 2), businesses are increasingly choosing to treat and purify their own water, in a trend known as Decentralized Water, first described in the Lux Researchpresentation of June 28, 2016. (https://members.luxresearchinc.com/research/report/20060). 32 [[Image Removed]] Figure 2 According to the Lux Researchdata, the unmet infrastructure needs of America's 150,000+ water systems will exceed $100 billionper year by 2025. And the recent Infrastructure Investmentand Jobs Act only provided one-time funding of $55 billion, which is less than one year's deficit.
It is this underfunding that is creating the water quality problems we are
seeing in places like
It is not realistic to expect this underfunding of central water to be resolved anytime soon. The alternative is to simply reduce the load on these central systems. Since industry and agriculture together account for 89% of all water demand in
the United States(https://ourworldindata.org/water-use-stress), we can enable commercial users to purify their own wastewater, thereby enabling water districts to focus on serving residential users - achieving a major social justice victory by simply unburdening the central facilities. Self-treatment is a win-win, too - because businesses can do better by treating their own water; for instance, implementing recycling of the water they pay for, and controlling their own costs. But to make such a decentralization program work, capital is needed. Most businesses simply do not have it in their capital plan to treat their own water. Now, with Water On Demand, they can forget about investing in capital and expertise: they can simply continue to pay on the meter as they always have, but to a micro-utility that sits on their own premises.
Technology specifically developed for decentralization.
OriginClearlaunched its Modular Water Systems (MWS) division (www.modularwater.com), headed by Daniel M. Early, P.E., a pioneer of on-site or decentralized water treatment in this country. Supported by its proprietary technology, this division already serves businesses doing their own water treatment. These modular systems can be easily put to work for pre-funded, pay-per-gallon applications, potentially creating a barrier to entry for other companies wanting to do the same. 33 Also, the portable nature of some of these prefabricated, drop-in-place Modular Water Systems may provide a competitive benefit for a pure service model where the equipment remains the property of the Company, because their mobility enables some degree of repossession in the event the client fails to pay their monthly bill. We believe this is a key competitive advantage.
Finally, we could license MWS technology to Water On Demand operating partners
under contract to design, build and operate systems, thus achieving both
acceptance of such technology and a standardized “fleet” of installed systems.
Implementation of Water On Demand
March 17, 2021, OriginClearincorporated Water On Demand #1 Inc. ("WOD#1") in Nevadaas a wholly owned subsidiary to operate and manage our Water on Demand business. In November 2021, the Company created additional Water on Demand subsidiaries - Water on Demand # 2, Inc. (WOD # 2), Water on Demand # 3, Inc. (WOD # 3) and Water on Demand # 4, Inc. (WOD # 4) were separately created to permit optional segmenting of capital pools according to strategic partnerships. The Company is now simplifying this structure by placing all funds in WOD #1 and tracking the partnerships within that company. As they are subject to a security guaranty by the Company, the WOD Subsidiaries, and the capital raised for them through the Company's Series Y offering, shall continue to be held by the Company. This capital will be made available to WODI to be deployed, subject to a planned management contract.
The Company requires funding in order to execute on its Water on Demand
initiative. As of the period ended

Preferred Stock dedicated to the Water on Demand program.
The Company is now actively evaluating potential clients for a test of water treatment and purification services on a pay-per-gallon basis, but a first agreement has not been reached. Also, the Company, as represented by OCLN, is in early stage talks with partners to deliver DBOO services, with the Company providing financing and contract management services. In the event such talks do not succeed, the Company, represented under contract by OCLN, would need to implement its own resources for such DBOO services. On
April 6, 2022, the Company agreed in principle to an arrangement with Houston-based, international water service company Envirogen Technologiesfor certain operations and maintenance (O&M) functions, the first of a potential series of such partnerships, intended to enable Water On Demand to focus on finance and asset management while the water industry benefits from a steady stream of pre-capitalized projects.
April 13, 2022, the Company announced the formation of Water On Demand, Inc.("WODI") as a wholly owned subsidiary and its plans to transfer each of the WOD subsidiaries and all assets, intellectual property and operations related to the Water On Demand business to WODI. The Company now stipulates that it has excluded the WOD Subsidiaries, and all capital already raised and to be raised in the future in its Series Y offering, from this assignment of assets and will make the capital available as part of a planned management contract. The Company intends to also register a Regulation A offering by WODI which is intended to accumulate capital for WODI to direct toward WOD projects. On June 29, 2022the Company announced the launch of its $300 Millionoffering (the "Reg D Offering") to be conducted on behalf of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Water on Demand, Inc.("WODI"). The offering of the securities is made pursuant to an exemption from registration under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D, to accredited investors only. Water On Demand is designed to offer clean water systems to businesses and communities as a managed service without any capital requirement. Due to a planned separate filing of a Regulation A+ Offering (the "Reg A Offering"), the Company has decided to limit the Reg D Offering to $20 millionin total. 34

September 2020, OriginClearannounced that Philanthroinvestors had entered a strategic agreement with the Company and had listed the Company on its new Water Philanthroinvestors program. At the same time, the Company appointed Philanthroinvestors Founder, Ivan Anzand CEO, Arte Marento OriginClear's Board of Advisors. $H2O™ On May 10, 2021, OriginClearfiled "System And Method For Water Treatment Incentive", a patent application for using blockchain technology and non-fungible tokens ("NFT") to simplify the distribution of payments on outsourced water treatment and purification services billed on a pay-per-gallon basis ahead of inflation, or Water On Demand. The Company recently filed a PCT application pertaining to the invention. On May 16, 2021, the Company applied for a registered trademark for the mark $H2O (also referred to as H2O) as the blockchain system representing this activity. The current filing basis is "Intent-to-use basis" (under Trademark Act Section 1(b)).
investor and a veteran technologist, to the Company’s
There is no active development effort for $H2O. Depending on the final form that $H2O takes, we may encounter regulatory concerns that we cannot guarantee we will overcome. In that event, we would fall back on ordinary financial payment systems. Neither our Water on Demand or other current business models rely on any blockchain system for operation, and we can accomplish our operational goals using ordinary financial and currency channels. The Company does not intend to incorporate a blockchain system in any registered offering. ClearAqua™
OriginClearis currently exploring a utility coin, or token, named ClearAqua, The Water Coin For The World™, which would implement a grassroots network for alerts, leading to actionable proposals for water projects. There is no assurance this token will be issued or if issued, will be successful. ClearAqua is not required for OriginClear'score business. We filed, on an intent-to-use basis, US Trademark applications on July 21, 2021, for the Mark, CLEARAQUA. We also engaged San Diego-based Baja Technologies Inc.("Baja") who wrote a preliminary white paper, but no other action has been taken and ClearAqua is not in active development at this time. The Company does not intend to incorporate a coin, token or cryptocurrency in any registered offering.
Potential Acquisitions and Incubations
The Company, in its role as the CWIB, seeks to incubate or acquire businesses that help industrial water users achieve water self-sustainability. We believe that assembling a group of such water treatment and water management businesses is potentially an opportunity for spinoffs and increased Company value for the stockholders. We are particularly interested in companies which successfully execute on Design-Build-Own-Operate or DBOO. These companies are growing fast, because tougher regulations, water scarcities and general outsourcing trends are driving industrial and agricultural water treatment users to delegate their water problem to service providers. As Global Water Intelligence pointed out in their report on
October 30, 2015, "Water is often perceived as a secondary importance, with end-users increasingly wanting to focus solely on their own core business. This is driving a move away from internal water personnel towards external service experts to take control of water aspects." External service experts are typically small-privately owned and locally operated. Creating a network of such providers could lead to enormous economies of scale through sharing of best practices, technologies, and customers and could represent a major barrier to entry for Water On Demand's competitors. The Company cautions that suitable acquisition candidates may not be identified and even if identified, the Company may not have adequate capital to complete the acquisition and/or definitive agreement may not be reached. Internally-incubated businesses, similarly, may not become commercial successes. 35
Patents and Intellectual Property
June 25, 2018, Dan Earlygranted the Company a worldwide, exclusive non-transferable license to intellectual property consisting of five issued US patents, and design software, CAD, marketing, design and specification documents ("Early IP"). On May 20, 2020, we agreed on a renewal of the license for an additional ten years, with three-year extensions. We also gained the right to sublicense, and, with approval, to create ISO-compliant manufacturing joint ventures. The Early IP consists of combined protection on the materials and configurations of complete packaged water treatment systems, built into containers. The patents consist of the following: Date Patent Expiration # Description Patent No. Issued Date 1 Wastewater System & Method US 8,372,274 B2
Mexico2 Steel Reinforced HDPE Rainwater US 8,561,633 B2
3 Wastewater Treatment System CIP US 8,871,089 B2 10/28/14 05/07/32 4 Scum Removal System for Liquids US 9,205,353 B2 12/08/15 02/19/34 5 Portable, Steel Reinforced HDPE US 9,217,244 B2 12/22/15 10/20/31 Pump Station CIP On
May 10, 2021, OriginClearannounced that it had filed "System And Method For Water Treatment Incentive", a patent application for using blockchain technology and non-fungible tokens (NFT) to simplify the distribution of payments on outsourced water treatment and purification services billed on a pay-per-gallon basis ahead of inflation. With the rising need for local, point-of-use or point-of-discharge water treatment solutions, the Modular Water Systems licensed IP family is the core to a portable, integrated, transportable, plug-and-play system that, unlike other packaged solutions, can be manufactured in series, have a longer life and are more respectful of the environment.
The common feature of this IP family is the use of a construction material
(Structural Reinforced ThermoPlastic), for the containers that is:
? more durable: an estimated 75 to 100-year life cycle as opposed to a few decades for metal, or 40 to 50 years maximum for concrete;
? easier to manufacture: vessels manufacturing process can be automated;
and ? recyclable and can be made out of biomaterials In addition, patents US 8,372,274 and US 8,871,089 (1 and 3) relate to the use of vessels or containers made out of this material combined with a configuration of functional modules, or process, for general water treatment.
Other subsequent patents, which build upon the original claims, focus on more
targeted applications. These patents outline a given combination of modules
engineered inside the vessel to address a specific water treatment challenge.
Expansion of the PWT and MWS Business-Lines
network to serve both PWT and MWS for customer lead generation.
36 Beginning with its first installation, PWT built MWS components. The Company is currently developing MWS as a discrete line of business for an eventual spinoff, and MWS systems are built and assembled by a network of fabrication partners. In addition, the Company is developing the
EveraMOD Pump Stationproduct line as a standalone business. Critical Accounting Policies The Securities and Exchange Commission("SEC") defines "critical accounting policies" as those that require application of management's most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain and may change in subsequent periods. Not all of the accounting policies require management to make difficult, subjective or complex judgments or estimates. However, the following policies could be deemed to be critical within the SECdefinition. Revenue Recognition We recognize revenue when services are performed, and at the time of shipment of products, provided that evidence of an arrangement exists, title and risk of loss have passed to the customer, fees are fixed or determinable, and collection of the related receivable is reasonably assured. Revenues and related costs on construction contracts are recognized as the performance obligations for work are satisfied over time in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Under ASC 606, revenue and associated profit, will be recognized as the customer obtains control of the goods and services promised in the contract (i.e., performance obligations). All un-allocable indirect costs and corporate general and administrative costs are charged to the periods as incurred. However, in the event a loss on a contract is foreseen, the Company will recognize the loss, as it is determined. Revisions in cost and profit estimates during the course of the contract are reflected in the accounting period in which the facts for the revisions become known. Provisions for estimated losses on uncompleted contracts are made in the period in which such losses are determined. Changes in job performance, job conditions, and estimated profitability, including those arising from contract penalty provisions, and final contract settlements, may result in revisions to costs and income, which are recognized in the period the revisions are determined. Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates include estimates used to review the Company's goodwill, impairments and estimations of long-lived assets, revenue recognition on percentage of completion type contracts, allowances for uncollectible accounts, inventory valuation, valuations of non-cash capital stock issuances and the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable in the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
Fair value of financial instruments requires disclosure of the fair value
information, whether or not recognized in the balance sheet, where it is
practicable to estimate that value. As of
reported for cash, prepaid expenses, accounts payable and accrued expenses
approximate the fair value because of their short maturities.

Other Income and (Expenses) Other income and (expenses) increased by
$47,787,918to $(28,067,729)for the three months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $19,720,189for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The increase was due primarily to an increase in loss on non-cash accounts associated with the change in fair value of the derivatives in the amount of $47,405,884, with an overall increase in other expenses in the amount of $382,034. Net Income/(Loss) Our net loss increased by $47,468,166to $(29,071,051)for the three months ended September 30, 2022, compared to net income of $18,397,115for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The majority of the increase in net loss was due primarily to an increase in other expenses associated with the net change in fair value of derivative instruments estimated each period. These estimates are based on multiple inputs, including the market price of our stock, interest rates, our stock price, volatility, variable conversion prices based on market prices defined in the respective agreements and probabilities of certain outcomes based on managements' estimates. These inputs are subject to significant changes from period to period, therefore, the estimated fair value of the derivative liabilities will fluctuate from period to period, and the fluctuation may be material.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate funds to support its current and future operations, satisfy its obligations, and otherwise operate on an ongoing basis. Significant factors in the management of liquidity are funds generated by operations, levels of accounts receivable and accounts payable and capital expenditures. The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis of accounting, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets and liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not reflect any adjustments that might result if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. The Company has not generated significant revenue, and has negative cash flows from operations, which raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern and appropriateness of using the going concern basis is dependent upon, among other things, raising additional capital and increasing sales. We obtained funds from investors during the nine months ending
September 30, 2022. No assurance can be given that any future financing will be available or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to the Company. Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, it may contain restrictions on our operations, in the case of debt financing, or cause substantial dilution for our stockholders, in case of equity financing.
In connection with our sale of Series M Preferred Stock conducted under
Regulation A under the Securities Act, we may be subject to claims for
rescission. If this occurs, it may have a negative effect on our liquidity.
September 30, 2022and December 31, 2021, we had cash of $1,751,226and $706,421, including restricted cash of $1,266,391and $433,951, respectively and a working capital deficit of $37,858,994and $12,826,008, respectively. The increase in working capital deficit was due primarily to an increase in non-cash derivative liabilities, accounts payable, contract assets, cash and accrued expenses, with a decrease in convertible promissory notes, contracts liabilities, loan payable and contract receivables. During the period ended September 30, 2022, we raised an aggregate of $4,525,782from the sale of preferred stock in private placements. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon raising capital from financing transactions and future revenue. Net cash used in operating activities was $3,483,023for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $3,560,033for the prior period ended September 30, 2021. The decrease in cash used in operating activities was primarily due to a decrease in contract liabilities, contract assets, and prepaid expenses, with an increase in and accounts payable and accrued expenses.
Net cash flows used in investing activities was
primarily due to the purchase of fixed assets during the current period.
39 Net cash flows provided by financing activities was
$4,554,966for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, as compared to $3,716,241for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The increase in cash provided by financing activities was due primarily to an increase in proceeds for issuance of preferred stock. To date we have principally financed our operations through the sale of our common and preferred stock and the issuance of debt. We do not have any material commitments for capital expenditures during the next twelve months. Although our proceeds from the issuance of securities together with revenue from operations are currently sufficient to fund our operating expenses in the near future, we will need to raise additional funds in the future so that we can maintain and expand our operations. Therefore, our future operations are dependent on our ability to secure additional financing, which may not be available on acceptable terms, or at all. Financing transactions may include the issuance of equity or debt securities, obtaining credit facilities, or other financing mechanisms. Furthermore, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our common stock. The inability to obtain additional capital may restrict our ability to grow and may reduce our ability to continue to conduct business operations. If we are unable to obtain additional financing, we may have to curtail our marketing and development plans and possibly cease our operations. We have estimated our current average burn, and believe that we have assets to ensure that we can function without liquidation for a limited time, due to our cash on hand, growing revenue, and our ability to raise money from our investor base. Based on the aforesaid, we believe we have the ability to continue our operations for the immediate future and will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of operations. However, there cannot be any assurance that any of the aforementioned assumptions will come to fruition and as such we may only be able to function for a short time.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We do not have any off balance sheet arrangements that are reasonably likely to
have a current or future effect on our financial condition, revenues, and
results of operations, liquidity or capital expenditures.
