|9 Months Ended|
Dec. 31, 2020
|Stockholders' Equity Note [Abstract]|
As of December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020, the Company had 200,000,000 shares of preferred stock authorized with a par value of $0.0001. Of this amount, 5,000,000 shares of Series A preferred stock are authorized and outstanding, 5,000 shares Series B preferred stock are authorized and 1,920 outstanding, and 20,000 shares Series D preferred stock are authorized and 5,000 outstanding respectively.
On December 16, 2020, the Board authorized the issuance of 20,000 preferred shares to be designated as Series D Preferred Stock (“Series D PS”). The Series D PS have a par value of $0.0001, a stated value of $1,200 and will vote together with the common stock on an as-converted basis. In addition, as further described in the Series D Designation, as long as any of the shares of Series D Preferred Stock are outstanding, the Company will not take certain corporate actions without the affirmative vote at a meeting (or the written consent with or without a meeting) of the majority of the shares of Series D Preferred Stock then outstanding. Each holder of Series D Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receive, with respect to each share of Series D Preferred Stock then outstanding and held by such holder, dividends at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum (the “Preferred Dividends”). Dividends may be paid in cash or in shares of Preferred Stock at the discretion of the Company.
The Series D PS are convertible into Common Stock at the election of the holder of the Series D PS at any time following five days after a qualified offering (defined as an offering of common stock for an aggregate price of at least $10,000,000 resulting in the listing for trading of the Common Stock on the NYSE American, the Nasdaq Capital Market, the Nasdaq Global Market, the Nasdaq Global Select Market or the New York Stock Exchange) at a 35% discount to the offering price, or, if a qualified offering has not occurred, at a price of $0.10 per share, subject to adjustment based on several situations, including future dilutive issuances and a Fundamental Transaction.
The Series D PS shall be redeemed by the Corporation on the date that is no later than one calendar year from the date of its issuance. The Series D PS are also redeemable at the Company's option, at percentages ranging from 115% to 125% for the first 180 days, based on the passage of time. The Company shall redeem the Series D PS in cash upon a three business days prior notice to the holder or the holder may convert the Series D PS within such three business days period prior to redemption. Additionally, the holder shall have the right to either redeem for cash or convert the Preferred Stock into Common Stock within three business days following the consummation of a qualified offering. The Series D PS are also redeemable at the holder’s option, upon the occurrence of a triggering event which includes a change of control, bankruptcy, and the inability to deliver shares of common stock requested under conversion notices. The triggering redemption amount is 150% of the stated value.
Upon the dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary, the holders of Series D PS shall be entitled to receive out of the assets of the Company an amount equal to the stated value, plus any accrued and unpaid dividends and any other fees or liquidated damages then due and owing for each share of Series D PS before any payment or distribution shall be made to the holders of any Junior securities.
As the Series D PS has a conditional redemption date, as it is convertible, it is classified in mezzanine and, it is considered to be an debt host instrument. The conversion price, unless and until there is a qualified offering, is a fixed price and as such the conversion feature is not required to be bifurcated and accounted for as a derivative liability. The Company will analyze the conversion feature under ASC 470-20, “Debt with conversion and other options”, at each issuance date and based on the market price of the common stock of the Company on the commitment date as compared to the conversion price, determine if there is a beneficial conversion feature to recognize.
The Series D Designation are subject to certain Registration Rights, whereby if the Corporation does not complete a market listing to the NYSE American, the Nasdaq Capital Market, the Nasdaq Global Market, the Nasdaq Global Select Market or the New York Stock Exchange (or any successors to any of the foregoing) within one hundred twenty (120) calendar days from the issuance of the Series D Preferred Stock, the Company will, within ten (10) calendar days, file a registration statement covering the shares of Common Stock underlying the Series D Preferred Shares. Additionally, the Company will include the shares of Common Stock underlying the Series D Preferred Shares in any registration statement which is being filed by the Corporation’s existing investment banker, provided, that said registration statement is not yet effective with the SEC and provided that the Company receives the prior written approval of said investment banker.

During the nine months ended December 31, 2020 the Company received $3,250,000 for the issuance of 3,250 Series B PS.
