Note 1. Description of Business

Nature of Business

SCWorx, LLC (n/k/a SCW FL Corp.) (“SCW LLC”) was a privately held limited liability company which was organized in Florida on November 17, 2016. On December 31, 2017, SCW LLC acquired Primrose Solutions, LLC (“Primrose”), a Delaware limited liability company, which became its wholly-owned subsidiary and focused on developing functionality for the software now used and sold by SCWorx Corp. (the “Company” or “SCWorx”). The majority interest holders of Primrose were interest holders of SCW LLC and based upon Staff Accounting Bulletin Topic 5G, the technology acquired has been accounted for at predecessor cost of $0. To facilitate the planned acquisition by Alliance MMA, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Alliance”), on June 27, 2018, SCW LLC merged with and into a newly-formed entity, SCWorx Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (“SCW Acquisition”), with SCW Acquisition being the surviving entity. Subsequently, on August 17, 2018, SCW Acquisition changed its name to SCWorx Corp. On November 30, 2018, the Company and certain of its stockholders agreed to cancel 6,510 shares of common stock. In June 2018, the Company began to collect subscriptions for common stock. From June to November 2018, the Company collected $1,250,000 in subscriptions and issued 3,125 shares of common stock to new third-party investors. In addition, on February 1, 2019, (i) SCWorx Corp. (f/k/a SCWorx Acquisition Corp.) changed its name to SCW FL Corp. (to allow Alliance to change its name to SCWorx Corp.) and (ii) Alliance acquired SCWorx Corp. (n/k/a SCW FL Corp.) in a stock-for-stock exchange transaction and changed Alliance’s name to SCWorx Corp., which is the Company’s current name, with SCW FL Corp. becoming the Company’s subsidiary. On March 16, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, SCWorx established a wholly-owned subsidiary, Direct-Worx, LLC.

Business Combination and Related Transactions

On February 1, 2019, Alliance MMA completed the acquisition of SCWorx, changed its name to SCWorx Corp., changed its ticker symbol to “WORX”, and effected a one-for-nineteen reverse stock split of its common stock [bracketed amounts represent post-split adjusted shares or per share amounts], which combined the 100,000,000 Alliance shares of common stock issued to the Company’s shareholders into 5,263,158 shares of common stock of the newly combined company.

From a legal perspective, Alliance MMA acquired SCWorx FL Corp, and as a result, historical equity awards including stock options and warrants are carried forward at their historical basis.

From an accounting perspective, Alliance MMA was acquired by SCWorx FL Corp in a reverse merger and as a result, the Company has completed preliminary purchase accounting for the transaction.

Operations of the Business

SCWorx is a leading provider of data content and services related to the repair, normalization and interoperability of information for healthcare providers and big data analytics for the healthcare industry.

SCWorx has developed and markets health information technology solutions and associated services that improve healthcare processes and information flow within hospitals. SCWorx’s software platform enables healthcare providers to simplify, repair, and organize its data (“data normalization”), allows the data to be utilized across multiple internal software applications (“interoperability”) and provides the basis for sophisticated data analytics (“big data”). SCWorx’s solutions are designed to improve the flow of information quickly and accurately between the existing supply chain, electronic medical records, clinical systems, and patient billing functions. The software is designed to achieve multiple operational benefits such as supply chain cost reductions, decreased accounts receivables aging, accelerated and more accurate billing, contract optimization, increased supply chain management and cost visibility, synchronous Charge Description Master (“CDM”) and control of vendor rebates and contract administration fees.

SCWorx empowers healthcare providers to maintain comprehensive access and visibility to an advanced business intelligence that enables better decision-making and reductions in product costs and utilization, ultimately leading to accelerated and accurate patient billing. SCWorx’s software modules perform separate functions as follows:

  virtualized Item Master File repair, expansion and automation;

  CDM management;

  contract management;

  request for proposal automation;

  rebate management;

  big data analytics modeling; and

  data integration and warehousing.

SCWorx continues to provide transformational data-driven solutions to some of the finest, most well-respected healthcare providers in the United States. Clients are geographically dispersed throughout the country. The Company’s focus is to assist healthcare providers with issues they have pertaining to data interoperability. SCWorx provides these solutions through a combination of direct sales and relationships with strategic partners.

SCWorx’s software solutions are delivered to clients within a fixed term period, typically a three-to-five-year contracted term, where such software is hosted in SCWorx data centers (Amazon Web Service’s “AWS” or RackSpace) and accessed by the client through a secure connection in a software as a service (“SaaS”) delivery method.

SCWorx currently sells its solutions and services in the United States to hospitals and health systems through its direct sales force and its distribution and reseller partnerships. 

SCWorx, as part of the acquisition of Alliance MMA, operates an online event ticketing platform focused on serving regional MMA (“mixed martial arts”) promotions.

The Company currently hosts its solutions, serves its customers, and supports its operations in the United States through an agreement with a third party hosting and infrastructure provider, RackSpace. The Company incorporates standard IT security measures, including but not limited to; firewalls, disaster recovery, backup, etc. The Company’s operations are dependent upon the integrity, security and consistent operation of various information technology systems and data centers that process transactions, communication systems and various other software applications used throughout its operations. Disruptions in these systems could have an adverse impact on the Company’s operations. The Company could encounter difficulties in developing new systems or maintaining and upgrading existing systems. Such difficulties could lead to significant expenses or to losses due to disruption in the Company’s business operations.

In addition, the Company’s information technology systems are subject to the risk of infiltration or data theft. The techniques used to obtain unauthorized access, disable or degrade service, or sabotage information technology systems change frequently and may be difficult to detect or prevent over long periods of time. Moreover, the hardware, software or applications the Company develops or procures from third parties may contain defects in design or manufacture or other problems that could unexpectedly compromise the security of the Company’s information systems. Unauthorized parties may also attempt to gain access to the Company’s systems or facilities through fraud or deception aimed at its employees, contractors or temporary staff. In the event that the security of the Company’s information systems is compromised, confidential information could be misappropriated, and system disruptions could occur. Any such misappropriation or disruption could cause significant harm to the Company’s reputation, lead to a loss of sales or profits or cause the Company to incur significant costs to reimburse third parties for damages.

On March 16, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, SCWorx established a wholly-owned subsidiary, Direct-Worx, LLC to endeavor to source and provide critical, difficult-to-find items for the healthcare industry. Items have become difficult to source due to unexpected disruptions within the supply chain, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. These products the Company has sought to source include: 

  Test Kits — the Company has identified potential sources for Rapid Test Kits for COVID-19, but currently has no contracted supply of Rapid Test Kits.

  PPE — Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) includes items such as masks, gloves, gowns, shields, etc.

The sale of PPE and rapid test kits for COVID-19 represents a new business for the Company and is subject to the myriad risks associated with any new venture. The Company has for example encountered great difficulty in attempting to secure reliable sources of supply for both COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits and PPE including, 3M N95 masks, which are the preferred medical grade mask of US healthcare companies. Further, the Company has encountered shipping delays with regard to masks and other PPE, and significant quality related issues regarding N95 masks. In addition, regarding the Company’s sourcing of COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits, the Company has encountered significant shipping delays, as well as reduced quantities. In addition, the Company currently has no contracted supply of Rapid Test Kits. Consequently, there is no assurance as to whether the Company will be able to source a reliable supply of COVID-19 test kits. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company did not complete the sale of any COVID-19 rapid test kits, and completed minimal sales of PPE. As of June 30, 2020, the Company had approximately 47,000 test kits and approximately 40,000 sampling kits in inventory. In addition, changes in FDA processes governing the sale of COVID-19 serology tests could have the effect of rendering the COVID-19 serology tests to be sold by the Company not saleable in the United States, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to generate any significant revenue from the sale of PPE products or rapid test kits. As of the date of this report, the Company has not generated any material revenue from the sale of PPE or rapid test kits.

Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic

The Company’s operations and business have experienced disruption due to the unprecedented conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic spreading throughout the United States and the world. The New York and New Jersey area, where the Company is headquartered, was at one of the early epicenters of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States. The outbreak has since spread to the rest of the country and is impacting new customer acquisition. The Company has been following the recommendations of local health authorities to minimize exposure risk for its team members since the outbreak.

In addition, the Company’s customers (hospitals) have also experienced extraordinary disruptions to their businesses and supply chains, while experiencing unprecedented demand for health care services related to COVID-19. As a result of these extraordinary disruptions to the Company’s customers’ business, the Company’s customers are currently focused on meeting the nation’s health care needs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, there is a significant risk that the Company’s customers will not be able to focus any resources on expanding the utilization of the Company’s services, which could adversely impact its future growth prospects, at least until the adverse effects of the pandemic subside. In addition, the financial impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s hospital customers could cause the hospitals to delay payments due to the Company for services, which could negatively impact the Company’s cash flows.

The Company is endeavoring to mitigate these risks to revenue through the sale of personal protective equipment (“PPE”) and COVID-19 rapid test kits to the health care industry, including many of the Company’s hospital customers. The Company’s Chief Executive Officer and employees have experience in the healthcare industry and industry contacts, and a database of items designed to assist the healthcare industry in fulfilling its inventory demands.

On March 16, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, SCWorx established a wholly-owned subsidiary, Direct-Worx, LLC to endeavor to source and provide critical, difficult-to-find items for the healthcare industry. Items have become difficult to source due to unexpected disruptions within the supply chain, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
