InnerScope Hearing Technologies, Inc. (“Company”, “InnerScope”) is a Nevada Corporation incorporated on June 15, 2012, with its principal place of business in Roseville, California. The Company was originally named InnerScope Advertising Agency, Inc. and was formed to provide advertising and marketing services to retail establishments in the hearing device industry. On August 25, 2017, the Company changed its name to InnerScope Hearing Technologies, Inc. to better reflect the Company’s current direction as a technology driven company with a scalable business to business (B2B) solution and business to consumer (and B2C) solution. Recently, the Company began offering its own line of “Hearable”, and “Wearable” Personal Sound Amplifier Products (PSAPs).


On June 20, 2012, the Company entered into an Acquisition and Plan of Share Exchange with InnerScope Advertising Agency, LLC (“ILLC”), a commonly owned entity, whereby the Company acquired 100% of ILLC. On November 1, 2013, the Company entered into an Acquisition and Plan of Share Exchange with Intela-Hear, LLC (“Intela-Hear”), a commonly owned entity, whereby the Company acquired 100% of the outstanding equity of Intela-Hear in exchange for 27,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. This resulted in Intela-Hear becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.


On August 5, 2016, the Company along with Mark Moore (“Mark”, the Company’s Chairman of the Board), Matthew Moore (“Matthew”, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer) and Kim Moore (“Kim”, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer) entered into a Store Expansion Consulting Agreement (the “Expansion Agreement”) with a third party (the “Client”). Mark, Matthew and Kim are herein referred to collectively as the “Moores”. Pursuant to the Expansion Agreement, the Company and the Moores were responsible for all physical plant and marketing details for the Client’s new store openings during the initial term of six-months. The Expansion Agreement was cancelled on January 6, 2017. The Client has decided to do their own marketing in-house and eliminate this out-sourced contract and decided to open only one location and delay the opening of any other new stores.  For the three months ended March 31 2017, the Company has recognized $100,000 of income for the one new store, opened in January 2017, and $160,000 in other income, net, for payments received for the Expansion Agreement pursuant to the cancellation. The client also paid an additional $30,000 for the cancellation of the Store Expansion Agreement and a marketing agreement.


Also, on August 5, 2016, the Company and the Moores entered into a Consulting Agreement (the “Consulting Agreement”) with the same Client as the store Expansion Agreement. Under the Consulting Agreement, including the Non-Compete provision covering a ten-mile radius of any retail store, the Company and the Moores were to provide unlimited licensing of the Intela-Hear brand name, exclusive access to the Aware Aural Rehab Program within 10 miles of retail stores, exclusive territory of all services within 10 miles of retail stores and up to 40 hours per month of various consulting services. The Consulting Agreement continues until January 31, 2019, unless terminated for cause, as defined in the Consulting Agreement. On May 26, 2017, the Company and the Moores were named in an action filed by the Client, that included a demand that all monies paid pursuant to the Consulting Agreement be returned. The Company believes the claim is frivolous and without merit, as well as not providing sufficient cause for the Agreement to be terminated (See Note 12).
