Nature of Operations
NaturalShrimp Incorporated is a global shrimp farming company that has developed a technology to produce fresh, gourmet-grade shrimp reliably and economically in an indoor, re-circulating, saltwater facility. Our eco-friendly, bio-secure design does not rely on ocean water; it recreates the natural ocean environment allowing for high-density production which can be replicated anywhere in the world.
Our self-contained shrimp aquiculture system allows for the production of Pacific White (Litopenaeus vannamei, formerly Penaeus vannamei) shrimp in an ecologically controlled fully contained and independent production system without the use of antibiotics or toxic chemicals.
The Company has developed several proprietary technology assets, including a knowledge base that allows the production of commercial quantities of shrimp in a closed system with a computer monitoring system that automates, monitors and maintains proper levels of oxygen, salinity and temperature for optimal shrimp production.
Our research and development facilities are located outside of San Antonio, Texas, and we hold a minority interest in a Norwegian company that owns and operates a similar shrimp production facility in Medina del Campo, Spain.
On November 26, 2014, Multiplayer Online Dragon, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“MYDR”), entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with NaturalShrimp Holdings, Inc. a Delaware corporation (“NSH” or the “Company”), pursuant to which MYDR was to acquire substantially all of the assets of NSH which assets consist primarily of all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of NaturalShrimp Corporation (“NSC”), a Delaware corporation, and NaturalShrimp Global, Inc. (“NS Global”), a Delaware corporation, and certain real property located outside of San Antonio, Texas (the “Assets”).
On January 30, 2015, MYDR consummated the acquisition of the Assets pursuant to the Agreement. In accordance with the terms of the Agreement, MYDR effected a 1 for 10 reverse stock split, decreasing the issued and outstanding shares of our common stock from 97,000,000 to 9,700,000 and MYDR issued 75,520,240 shares of its common stock to NSH as consideration for the Assets. As a result of the transaction, NSH acquired 88.62% of MYDR’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock, NSC and NS Global became MYDR’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, and MYDR changed its principal business to a global shrimp farming company. All per share amounts reflected hereafter give effect to the 1-for-10 reverse split.
As a result of the controlling financial interest of the former stockholders of NSH, for financial statement reporting purposes, the asset acquisition has been treated as a reverse acquisition with NSH deemed the accounting acquirer and the Company deemed the accounting acquiree under the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with ASC 805-10-55 of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC). The reverse acquisition is deemed a capital transaction and the net assets of NSH (the accounting acquirer) are carried forward to the Company (the legal acquirer and the reporting entity) at their carrying value before the acquisition. The acquisition process utilizes the capital structure of the Company and the assets and liabilities of NSH which are recorded at their historical cost. The equity of the Company is the historical equity of NSH.
In connection with MYDR’s receipt of approval from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”), effective March 3, 2015, MYDR amended its Articles of Incorporation to change its name to “NaturalShrimp Incorporated” (the “Company”).
The Company has two wholly owned subsidiaries including NaturalShrimp Corporation and NaturalShrimp Global, Inc.
As used in this report and unless otherwise indicated, the term “Company” refers to NaturalShrimp Incorporated and the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries (“Subsidiaries”). Unless otherwise specified, all dollar amounts are expressed in United States dollars.
