Item 1. Description of Business
Overview
Treasure Shipwreck & Recovery, Inc. (“TSR”, “us,” “we,”, the “Company”) is focused, through its wholly owned subsidiary TSR Holdings, Inc., on the exploration and recovery of historic shipwrecks. The Company has acquired various assets including a research vessel and specialized sensing equipment to be utilized to attempt to locate and eventually recover artifacts and treasure from historic shipwrecks, generally from the colonial era. The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary TSR Media Group, Inc., seeks to develop media and gaming based revenue streams based on the treasure salvage operations.
Corporate History
TSR was incorporated in the State of Nevada on October 24, 2016. The Company was originally incorporated as Beliss Corp. On June 26, 2019, the Company changed its name to Treasure & Shipwreck Recovery, Inc. The Company was originally in the search engine optimization (“SEO”), Internet marketing and web development business. Although TSR does not believe that it will generate any significant new business for its Internet marketing and website development services, the Company is prepared to fulfill any obligations related to customer deposits that were received in prior years.
Exploration and Salvage of Historic Shipwrecks
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (“UNESCO”) has estimated that there are as many as three million shipwrecks on the floors of the worlds’ oceans. Although it is a fact that many of these shipwrecks were not carrying any items of significant value, historic research documentation shows that it is likely that a percentage of these shipwrecks contained valuable artifacts and treasure, such as gold and silver coins, other precious metals and gems, such as emeralds.
While the 2021 Summer Season was successful, and numerous objects were recovered, including numerous coins, capsules called onion jars, ships parts, and many objects were recovered, they were taken into possession by the main contractors, we are awaiting disposition of the contents with the State of Florida and Federal Court through the main place holder of rights. TSR expects that distribution to occur in the short term, when TSR will gain its part of the recoveries for sale and keeping as assets which we expect to be appreciable for sale, NFT and other sales on a set up area for sales through our Media Group, and partner on line brokers.
In October 2021, TSR appointed two additional directors, being outside directors, Patrick Schneider of West Palm Beach, Florida and Frederick Conte of Las Vegas.

For the 2022 Summer Season TSR has again contracted with entities for recoveries on 1715 fleet and other or ancient wreck sites along the coast of Florida. Thus far this has been a successful season that will be more updated in the next quarter. As well as news being released on our social media Facebook page and other arenas. TSR is educating the public and some 24,000 followers on ancient shipwrecks and recoveries from around the world, and from shipwrecks off of Florida.
TSR, through its wholly owned subsidiary TSR Media Group, Inc. is actively pursuing the media coverage opportunities and expanding its social media presence across the globe with an agreement with a public relations firm that will have the Facebook page, Twitter account, TikTok account, and numerous other sites that will be interactive for the anticipated millions of followers that we will seek to gain to follow the story of TSR as it goes forward. During this same time, TSR has acquired media equipment such as drones and underwater cameras for use in documenting the Company’s operations. TSR has teamed with a renowned Media Group to maintain the TSR Facebook and Instagram accounts, as well as setting up sales and auction sites for sales of items recovered or otherwise under control for public sale worldwide.
The treasure related search and recovery business is highly specialized and requires special research and recovery capabilities. The industry and opportunity may have significant potential. For three hundred years, Spain and other European colonial powers pillaged the new world of treasure, shipping riches in thousands of ships over time back to Europe for the enjoyment and funding of those who never earned it. Along the way, an estimated one out of ten never made it home. Estimates of lost treasure from these ships in the Caribbean and the coast of Florida alone is conservatively placed at $60 billion.
Locating, exploring and salvaging historic shipwrecks involves a very lengthy and expensive process. It may take several years to successfully locate and salvage treasure or other valuable artifacts from viable shipwrecks. Moreover, the costs to operate in the historic shipwreck salvage industry can be excessive. These costs and expenses may exceed the economic value of any treasure that is successfully located.
Even if TSR is able to successfully locate historic shipwrecks, there are additional challenges to successfully recovering treasure. There are also various laws and regulations, both internationally and domestically, that must be complied with. These laws and regulations could further hamper or delay the Company in successfully locating and recovering treasure. There have been legal cases where shipwrecks were located and valuable treasure was successfully salvaged by one group only to have government or other private entities assert rights to the treasure. Such a situation could cause extensive delays in monetizing the treasure due to legal proceedings. There may also be environmental related laws and regulations for the areas where we conduct shipwreck salvage operations. However, in order to alleviate many of these concerns we are now operating in subcontractor situations where these permits and grants are in place and TSR is avoiding situations where governments would deny permitting and actions due to our responsible conduct with our partners on these locations. So therefore, we are not suffering from delays and oversights of other governmental agencies that are occurring with other treasure related commercial salvage businesses.
Furthermore, working in an underwater environment can be hazardous. Difficult weather conditions can significantly delay operations. The condition of wrecks and other natural hazards can impede salvage efforts for long periods of time, potentially many years in some cases. The maintenance and repair issues with salvage vessels and equipment can be continuous and very expensive which may lead to excessive down time.
Even if the Company is able to locate viable shipwrecks that theoretically may contain valuable treasure, there is the possibility that they may have already been stripped of anything of value. They may also not have been carrying anything valuable on board at the time that they were lost at sea. It is the Company’s intent to find shipwrecks where available research suggests there were not any previous recovery efforts or past recovery efforts failed or were not completed. In the event that valuable artifacts are located and recovered, it is possible that the cost of recovery will exceed the value of the artifacts recovered. It is also possible that other entities, including both private parties and governmental entities, will assert conflicting claims and challenge the Company’s rights to the recovered artifacts.
Salvage of historic shipwrecks is both very speculative and risky. Only those investors who do not require liquidity and who can afford the loss of their entire investment should consider an investment into TSR’s securities. Investors should also seek advice from a professional financial adviser before purchasing the securities of TSR. The Company was able to secure the immediate bridge financing that was necessary for the complete build out of our vessels, the purchase of state of the art dive equipment, multiple GPS systems that are super accurate, sonar systems as well as detection devices and the maintenance of capable treasure salvage vessels being used to obtain our goals off the East Coast of Florida primarily in the Sebastian area.

Treasure Search and Salvage Gaming App
The Company hired an app developer to create a gaming app based on treasure search and salvage. TSR believes that there potentially will be significant consumer interest in a downloadable gaming app based on the search for treasure from historic shipwrecks. TSR is currently working with its core in house development side to have a totally on line gaming experience that can be published worldwide. While TSR canceled its previous agreement with a developer that had been contracted, the Company now has the game being explored through TSR Media Group, Inc. to be developed.
Revenue Sources
TSR believes that it has numerous potential revenue routes. Assuming that the Company is able to successfully locate and recover treasure from a historic shipwreck, one revenue opportunity is to keep many artifacts and treasure as assets, to be shown in a planned TSR museum or public display. Second is sale of treasure and artifacts through certain auction houses and arranged product sales for coins, etc. Third is private collector sales. Fourth is road show and museum show fees. Finally, holding rights to television and future gaming revenues from its treasure search and salvage gaming app. for use on phones and other devices. Although the Company is actively working to develop revenue streams from its core treasure recovery business and ancillary business opportunities, it is challenging to project when revenues will be realized, if ever. The Company does expect that sales of some ancient items in the forms of coins, gem stone pieces and shipwreck objects may anticipate generating any revenues for the foreseeable future from the treasure recovery business or associated businesses via website or other sales.
Competition
There are various entities who are working to salvage historic shipwrecks. There are a few small publicly traded companies and numerous private mostly “mom and pop” companies, as well as individuals, who could be considered competitors to locate and salvage treasure from historic shipwrecks. A few of these entities may have access to financing or greater resources than TSR. The Company is evaluating partnerships and joint ventures that it believes would be beneficial for financial or strategic reasons with other industry participants. TSR does not see these other ventures as competitive necessarily except for the fact that if large amounts of gold, silver and jewels are found it could have a liquidity effect on the market place for sale of such items. As well the media and gaming side of matters gives TSR a different business plan then others who are in the business. In fact, TSR looks to partner with certain other companies and technologies that are in the treasure business to use such technologies to define down the actual spots where gold, silver, jewelry and other items can be found using their breakthrough technologies.
Research and Development Activities and Costs
During the years ended April 30, 2022 and 2021, we incurred $8,000 and$20,000, respectively, of research and development costs related to the development of our treasure search and salvage gaming app.
COVID-19 Pandemic Threat and Continuity Plan
Due to current events involving the global COVID-19 pandemic, TSR, under the guidance of its President, is reviewing procedures to monitor current events as they relate to our business and to be prepared to respond to any potential threats or issues in order to protect the Company and its assets. We are also in the process of reviewing plans to locate a back office for our corporate records and information at a location to be designated so that in the event that access to the Company’s offices are restricted, the Company is able to continue with its business and operations.
The Company’s operations may be adversely affected by the ongoing outbreak of the COVID-19 which was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (“WHO”) in March 2020. The ultimate disruption which may be caused by the outbreak is uncertain; however, it may result in a material adverse impact on TSR’s financial position, operations and cash flows.
Possible effects may include, but are not limited to, disruption to the Company’s operations, inability of management team members and other key personnel and consultants to provide services in a timely manner, unavailability of equipment, parts and supplies used in operations, lack of access to maintenance and repair facilities for the Company’s salvage vessel, and a decline in the value of the Company’s assets including its salvage vessel, equipment and its digital properties.
Additionally, it is possible that the Company is not able to obtain financing due to COVID-19’s effects on the general economy and the capital markets. If the Company is not able to obtain financing due to COVID-19 then it is highly likely that it will be forced to cease its operations. The impact of smaller companies such as TSR having to cease operations due to effects of COVID-19 would likely result in the Company not being able to survive and would cause a complete loss of all capital invested in the Company.

Item 3. Legal Proceedings
The Company is not aware of any pending or threatened litigation against us.
On November 9, 2019, the Company filed a declaratory action in the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court for Pinellas County, Florida for the purpose of obtaining a judicial declaratory judgment as to the Company’s status under the Securities laws as to whether the Company has ever been a “Shell” Company under the Securities Laws. Pursuant to Chapter 86 of the Florida Statutes the Court will render a decision whether the Company had ever met the definition of being a shell company under Rule 405 of the Securities Act, so that all shareholders would be able to utilize Rule 144, and otherwise be able to enjoy complete ownership and sale of such shares. Such matter is being amended to supply exhibits in a new filing. With a change in designation from being a “shell risk” by OTCMarkets, such matter in court was no longer deemed necessary.

PART II
Item 5. Market for Common Equity and Related Stockholder Matters
Market Information
Our common stock is presently quoted on the Pink Sheets under the symbol “BLIS”, as reflected below, though the current trading volume is small. No assurance can be given that any market for our common stock will continue in the future or be maintained. If an “established trading market” ever develops in the future, the sale of “restricted securities” (common stock) pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities and Exchange Commission by members of management, consultants, promissory note holders or others may have a substantial adverse impact on any such market and the sale of restricted securities by management or others may significantly depress the market price of the Company’s shares. There is currently a limited trading market for our securities on the Pink Sheets. We cannot assure when and if an active-trading market in our shares will be established, or whether any such market will be sustained or sufficiently liquid to enable holders of shares of our common stock to liquidate their investment in our company. If an active public market should develop in the future, the sale of unregistered and restricted securities by current shareholders may potentially have a substantial negative impact on any such market. The Company’s share price is quoted on the Pink Sheets. Accordingly, an investment in our securities should only be considered by those investors who do not require liquidity and can afford to suffer a total loss of their investment. An investor should consider consulting with professional advisers before making such an investment. Furthermore, the price of our common stock may be subject to a very high degree of volatility, which makes owning shares of our common stock highly risky. Shareholders may find it to be very difficult to deposit our shares into a brokerage account and should consult with a financial advisor before purchasing TSR’s shares.
Our stock price fluctuated between $0.40 and $0.02 for the year ended April 30, 2022 and $0.70 and $0.04 for the year ended April 30, 2021. The price of our shares may fluctuate significantly despite the absence of any apparent reason. In addition, our stock is thinly traded, leading to even greater volatility. You should expect this volatility to continue into the foreseeable future.
The following table reflects the high and low prices of our stock for each quarter during the periods ended April 30, 2022 and 2021:
Approximate Number of Holders of Common Stock
As of April 30, 2022, the 9,488,502 issued and outstanding shares of common stock were held by a total of 35 shareholders of record.
Dividends
No cash dividends were paid on our shares of common stock during the fiscal years ended April 30, 2022 and 2021.
Recent Sales and Other Issuances of Unregistered Securities
Purchase or Sale of our Equity Securities by Officers and Directors
During the years ended April 30, 2022 and 2021 there have been no sales of securities to officers and directors.
Item 6. Selected Financial Data
Not applicable to smaller reporting companies.
Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
The following discussion and analysis is intended to provide a narrative of our financial results and an evaluation of our financial condition and results of operations. The discussion should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and notes thereto. A description of our business is discussed in Item 1 of this report, which contains an overview of our business as well as the status of our ongoing project operations.
7
Results of operations
We have incurred recurring losses to date. Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that we will continue as a going concern and, accordingly, do not include adjustments relating to the recoverability and realization of assets and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue in operation.
We will require additional capital to meet our long term operating requirements. We expect to raise additional capital through, among other things, the sale of equity or debt securities. However, there can be no assurances that we will be able to raise additional capital. Based on its historical rate of expenditures, the Company expects to expend its available cash in less than one month from August 12, 2022.
Summary of the Year Ended April 30, 2022 Results of Operations Compared to the Year Ended April 30, 2021 Results of Operations

Other Income (Expenses)
Interest expense was $774,797 for the year ended April 30, 2022. There was no interest expense during the same period in 2021. The interest expense in 2022 was a result of interest on notes and the amortization of the interest relating to the beneficial conversion features of several convertible promissory notes.
Total other income (expense) was $(1,410,797) during the year ended April 30, 2022 and $20,167 during the year ended April 30, 2021.
Other expenses for the years ended April 30, 2022 and 2021 were $1,410,797 and $62,333.

For the year ended April 30, 2022 the Company incurred net losses of $2,069,567 versus net losses of $583,802 for the year ended April 30, 2021. The increase in net loss was attributable to increased impairment losses, interest expense and operating expenses.
Liquidity and Capital Resources and Cash Requirements

As at April 30, 2022, our total assets were $79,647.
As at April 30, 2022, our current liabilities were $950,587 and stockholders’ deficit was $870,940.
As of April 30, 2022, we had a net working capital deficit of $903,584
8
Cash flows from operating activities
For the year ended April 30, 2022 net cash flows used in operating activities was $613,758.
For the year ended April 30, 2021 net cash flows used in operating activities was $368,872.
The increase in cash used in operating activities is attributable to increased operating and boat expenses.
Cash flows from investing activities

Cash flows from financing activities
For the year ended April 30, 2022 cash flows provided by financing activities were $463,000.
For the year ended April 30, 2021 cash flows provided by financing activities were $559,955.
The increase in cash provided by financing activities is attributable to increased proceeds from the sale of convertible loans.
We qualify as a “smaller reporting company” under the JOBS Act. As a result, we are permitted to, and intend to, rely on exemptions from certain disclosure requirements.
For example, smaller reporting companies are not required to provide a compensation discussion and analysis under Item 402(b) of Regulation S-K or the auditor attestation of internal controls over financial reporting.
Future Financings
We will continue to rely on equity sales of the Company’s common shares in order to continue to fund business operations. Issuances of additional shares will result in dilution to existing shareholders. There is no assurance that the Company will achieve any additional sales of equity securities or arrange for debt or other financing to fund planned operations. Future financing activities involving the sale of common stock under subscription agreements or entering into convertible promissory note agreements may cause substantial dilution to current shareholders.
The Company may not be able to continue as a going concern. The report of our independent auditors for the years ended April 30, 2022 and 2021 raises substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern. Our independent auditors believe, based on our financial results as of April 30, 2022, that such results raised substantial doubts about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. If the Company is not able to continue as a going concern, it is highly likely that all capital invested in the Company will be lost.
Additionally, it is possible that the Company may face additional challenges in obtaining financing due to COVID-19’s effects on the general economy and the capital markets. If the Company is not able to obtain financing due to COVID-19 then it is highly likely it will be forced to cease operations and shut down its business, which would likely result in a complete loss of all capital invested in the Company.
Management believes that current trends toward lower capital investment in start-up companies pose the most significant challenge to the Company’s success over the next year and in future years. Additionally, the Company will have to meet all the financial disclosure and reporting requirements associated with being a publicly reporting company. The Company’s management will have to spend additional time on policies and procedures to make sure it is compliant with various regulatory requirements, especially that of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. This additional corporate governance time required of management could limit the amount of time management has to implement its business plan and impede the speed of its operations.
Limited operating history; need for additional capital
There is no historical financial information about us upon which to base an evaluation of our performance. We are in a start-up stage of operations and have generated very negligible revenues since inception. We cannot guarantee that we will be successful in our business operations. Our business is subject to risks inherent in the establishment of a new business enterprise, including limited capital resources and possible cost overruns due to price and cost increases in services and products.

These pronouncements did not have any material impact on the consolidated financial statements unless otherwise disclosed, and the Company does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on the Company’s financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

Treasure & Shipwreck Recovery Inc.
CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
April 30, 2022 and 2021
Table of Contents
F-1
REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of
Treasure & Shipwreck Recovery, Inc.

Opinion on the Financial Statements
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Treasure & Shipwreck Recovery, Inc. (the Company) as of April 30, 2022 and 2021, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ (deficit) equity, and cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended April 30, 2022, and the related notes and schedules (collectively referred to as the financial statements). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of April 30, 2022 and 2021, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended April 30, 2022, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
Substantial Doubt about the Company’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2, the Company has incurred net losses and negative cash flow from operations since inception. These factors, and the need for additional financing in order for the Company to meet its business plans raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Our opinion is not modified with respect to that matter.
Basis for Opinion
These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on our audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.
Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
Critical Audit Matters
The critical audit matters communicated below are matters arising from the current period audit of the financial statements that were communicated or required to be communicated to the audit committee and that: (1) relate to accounts or disclosures that are material to the financial statements and (2) involved our especially challenging, subjective, or complex judgments. The communication of critical audit matters does not alter in any way our opinion on the financial statements, taken as a whole, and we are not, by communicating the critical audit matters below, providing separate opinions on the critical audit matters or on the accounts or disclosures to which they relate.
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and Intangible Assets
As described in Note 3 to the Company’s consolidated financial statements, the Company reviews for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of long-lived assets may not be recoverable, at least annually for identified intangible assets. When impairment indicators exist, the Company uses market quotes, if available or an estimate of the future undiscounted net cash flows of the related asset or asset group over the remaining life in measuring whether or not the asset values are recoverable
F-2
We identified the Company’s application of impairment of long-lived assets and intangible assets as a critical audit matter. The principal considerations for our determination of this critical audit matter related to the high degree of subjectivity in the Company’s judgments in determining the qualitative factors. Auditing these judgments and assumptions by the Company involves auditor judgment due to the nature and extent of audit evidence and effort required to address these matters.
The primary procedures we performed to address these critical audit matters included the following:
We have served as the Company’s auditor since 2019.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Years ended April 30, 2022 and 2021
Note 1 – ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF BUSINESS
Treasure & Shipwreck Recovery, Inc (“TSR” or the “Company”), was incorporated in the State of Nevada on October 24, 2016 as Beliss Corp. The Company changed its name to Treasure & Shipwreck Recovery Inc. on June 26, 2019.
TSR formed TSR Holdings, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary, on August 22, 2019 as the Company’s operating vehicle to focus on the recovery of sunken treasure from historic shipwrecks. The Company was originally focused on the development of high impact internet marketing, search engine optimization (“SEO”) software and techniques, and the development of digital properties (collectively “Internet Marketing”).
On April 6, 2020, TSR formed TSR Media Group, Inc. (“TSR Media”), a wholly owned subsidiary, in order to develop various digital media properties. TSR Media is in the process of developing, through an outside app developer, a treasure search and salvage gaming app. TSR Media also entered into an agreement to purchase a domain called www.flavorfullapps.com and approximately 60 food related apps that are currently listed on Amazon.com, Blackberry World and Google Play.
Note 2 – GOING CONCERN
These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which assumes the Company will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. The Company has incurred net losses since inception, which raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Based on its historical rate of expenditures, the Company expects to expend its available cash in less than one month from August 15, 2022. Management’s plans include raising capital through the equity markets to fund operations and, eventually, the generation of revenue through its business. The Company does not expect to generate any significant revenues for the foreseeable future. At April 30, 2022, the Company had net working capital deficit of $903,584.The Company is in immediate need of further working capital and is seeking options, with respect to financing, in the form of debt, equity or a combination thereof.
Failure to raise adequate capital and generate adequate revenues could result in the Company having to curtail or cease operations. The Company’s ability to raise additional capital through the future issuances of common stock is unknown. Additionally, even if the Company does raise sufficient capital to support its operating expenses and generate adequate revenues, there can be no assurances that the revenue will be sufficient to enable it to develop to a level where it will generate profits and cash flows from operations. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern; however, the accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recovery of the recorded assets or the classifications of the liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
Covid-19 Disclosure
The Company’s operations may be adversely affected by the ongoing outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (“COVID-19”) which was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (“WHO”) in March 2020. The ultimate disruption which may be caused by the outbreak is uncertain; however, it may result in a material adverse impact on TSR’s financial position, operations and cash flows.
Additionally, it is possible that the Company may face additional challenges in obtaining financing due to COVID-19’s effects on the general economy and the capital markets. If the Company is not able to obtain financing due to COVID-19, then it is highly likely that it will be forced to cease operations. The impact on smaller companies such as TSR of having to cease operations due to the effects of COVID-19 would likely result in the Company not being able to survive and would cause a complete loss of all capital invested in the Company.
To date TSR has not suffered any significant setback due to COVID-19 interfering with operations.
Note 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation
This summary of significant accounting policies of TSR is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s consolidated financial statements. The consolidated financial statements and notes are representations of the Company’s management, who are responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements. The Company’s year-end is April 30.
F-8
Principles of Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements of the Company include the accounts of TSR Holdings, Inc. and TSR Media Group, Inc., which are wholly owned subsidiaries. Intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Use of Estimates
The process of preparing consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the use of estimates and assumptions regarding certain types of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses. Significant estimates for the years ended April 30, 2022 and 2021 include the useful life of property and equipment, valuation allowances against deferred tax assets and fair value of non cash equity transactions.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
For purposes of the consolidated statements of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid investments and short-term debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents.
There were no cash equivalents at April 30, 2022 and 2021. Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk consist principally of cash deposits. Accounts at each institution are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to $250,000. As of April 30, 2022, the Company had $0in excess of the FDIC insured limit.
Research and Development Expenses
Expenditures for research and development are expensed as incurred.
Revenue Recognition
The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606, Revenue from contracts with customers. The core principle of ASC 606 is that an entity recognizes revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. An entity recognizes revenue in accordance with that core principle by applying the following steps: Step 1: Identify the contract(s) with a customer, Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract, Step 3: Determine the transaction price, Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract and Step 5: Recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation. Specifically, Section 606-10-50 requires an entity to provide information about: a. Revenue recognized from contracts with customers, including the disaggregation of revenue into appropriate categories; b. Contract balances, including the opening and closing balances of receivables, contract assets, and contract liabilities; c. Performance obligations, including when the entity typically satisfies its performance obligations and the transaction price that is allocated to the remaining performance obligations in a contract; and d. Significant judgments, and changes in judgments, made in applying the requirements to those contracts.
The Company offers no discounts, rebates, rights of return, or other allowances to clients which would result in the establishment of reserves against service revenue. Additionally, to date, the Company has not incurred incremental costs in obtaining a client contract.
Basic Loss per Share
The Company has adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) ASC 260-10, which provides for the calculation of “basic” and “diluted” earnings per share. Basic earnings per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing net income or loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings of an entity.
The potentially dilutive common stock equivalents for the years ended April 30, 2022 and 2021 were excluded from the dilutive loss per share calculation as they would be antidilutive due to the net loss. As of April 30, 2022 and 2021, there were approximately 10,400,923 and 3,137,596 shares of common stock underlying our outstanding convertible notes payable and warrants, respectively.
F-9
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The carrying amounts of financial assets and liabilities, such as cash, accounts payable, short term loans, and the Company’s related party convertible loan from a shareholder approximate their fair values because of the short maturity of these instruments.
Fixed Assets
Fixed assets are recorded at historical cost. Depreciation is computed on the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets. Gains and losses upon disposition are reflected in the consolidated statements of operations in the period of disposition. Maintenance and repair expenditures are charged to expense as incurred. Currently the Company’s only assets are a diving vessel and a magnetometer. They are being depreciated over threeto twelveyear useful lives.
Impairment of Long-Lived and Intangible Assets
Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the book value of the asset may not be recoverable. The Company periodically evaluates whether events and circumstances have occurred that indicate possible impairment. When impairment indicators exist, the Company uses market quotes, if available or an estimate of the future undiscounted net cash flows of the related asset or asset group over the remaining life in measuring whether or not the asset values are recoverable. Identified intangible assets are reviewed for impairment at least annually, or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable.
At April 30, 2022 the Company recognized an impairment loss of $636,000on the trademark, graphics and related media and product materials that were acquired during the year ended April 30, 2019. At April 30, 2021, the Company recognized an impairment loss of $62,333on a website and related apps that were acquired during the year ended April 30, 2020.
Stock Based Compensation to Employees and Service Providers
The Company recognizes all share-based payments to employees and service providers, including grants of employee stock options, as compensation expense in the consolidated financial statements based on their fair values. That expense will be recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide services in exchange for the award, known as the requisite service period (usually the vesting period) or immediately if the share-based payments vest immediately.
Convertible Notes Payable
The Company accounts for convertible notes deemed conventional and conversion options embedded in non-conventional convertible notes which qualify as equity under ASC 815, in accordance with the provisions of ASC 470-20, which provides guidance on accounting for convertible securities with beneficial conversion features. ASC 470-10 addresses classification determination for specific obligations, such as short-term obligations expected to be refinanced on a long-term basis, due-on-demand loan arrangements, callable debt, sales of future revenue, increasing rate debt, debt that includes covenants, revolving credit agreements subject to lock-box arrangements and subjective acceleration clauses. Accordingly, the Company records, as a discount to convertible notes, the intrinsic value of such conversion options based upon the differences between the fair value of the underlying common stock at the commitment date of the note transaction and the effective conversion price embedded in the note. Debt discounts under these arrangements are amortized over the term of the related debt.
Customer Deposits
Customer deposits discloses an amount paid by a customer prior to the Company providing it with goods or services. The Company has an obligation to provide the goods or services to the customer or to return the money. The Company had $8,700in customer deposits as of April 30, 2022 and 2021.
Income Taxes
Income taxes are computed using the asset and liability method. Under the asset and liability method, deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the currently enacted tax rates and laws. A valuation allowance is provided for the amount of deferred tax assets that, based on available evidence, are not expected to be realized.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
All other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB, including its Emerging Issues Task Force, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Securities and Exchange Commission did not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company’s present or future consolidated financial statements.

Note 9 – INCOME TAXES
The Company adopted the provisions of uncertain tax positions as addressed in ASC 740-10-65-1. As a result of the implementation of ASC 740-10-65-1, the Company recognized no increase in the liability for unrecognized tax benefits.
The Company has no tax position at April 30, 2022 for which the ultimate deductibility is highly certain but for which there is uncertainty about the timing of such deductibility. The Company does not recognize interest accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits in interest expense and penalties in operating expenses. No such interest or penalties were recognized during the period presented. The Company had no accruals for interest and penalties at April 30, 2022 The Company’s utilization of any net operating loss carry forward may be unlikely as a result of its intended activities.

The valuation allowance at April 30, 2022 and 2021 was $700,236 and $265,627, respectively. The net change in valuation allowance during the years ended April 30, 2022 and 2021 were $434,609and $122,598respectively. In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred income tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred income tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible. Management considers the scheduled reversal of deferred income tax liabilities, projected future taxable income, and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. Based on consideration of these items, management has determined that enough uncertainty exists relative to the realization of the deferred income tax asset balances to warrant the application of a full valuation allowance as of April 30, 2022 and 2021. All tax years since inception remains open for examination only by taxing authorities.
Reconciliation between the provision for income taxes and the expected tax benefit using the federal statutory rate of 21% for 2022 and 2021:
The Company has a net operating loss carryforward for tax purposes totaling $1,227,558 at April 30, 2022, expiring through 2035. There is a limitation on the amount of taxable income that can be offset by carryforwards after a change in control (generally greater than a 50% change in ownership). Temporary differences, which give rise to a net deferred tax asset, are as follows:
The Company is currently in the process of gathering the information necessary for filing tax returns for past years, due to the Company’s lack of revenue since inception management does not believe that there is any income tax liability for past years.
Note 10 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
As of April 30, 2022, an officer of the Company has provided a loan to TSR under a convertible promissory note. This convertible promissory note is unsecured, non-interest bearing, and is convertible into common shares of the Company stock at $2.75 per share and due on demand. The balance due to the officer was $53,890as of April 30, 2022 and 2021.
On April 20, 2022, the Company entered into a convertible note payable with an individual who is a member of the Company’s Board of Directors. The note payable, with a face value of $50,000, bears interest at 10.0% per annum and is due on July 21, 2022. The convertible note payable is convertible upon default, at the note holder’s option, into the Company’s common shares at a fixed conversation rate of $0.05. The conversion of the note into shares of the Company’s common stock is potentially highly dilutive to current shareholders. If the note holder elects to sell the shares that it has acquired as a result of converting the note into shares of common stock, then any such sales may result in a significant decrease in the market price of the Company’s shares. This convertible promissory note is currently in default due to non payment of principal and interest.
During the years ended April 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company paid its President $53,970and $68,000, respectively, for services provided which are included in professional fees on the consolidated statements of operations.

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures.
(a) Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting.
Management’s Responsibility for Controls and Procedures
The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over the Company’s financial reporting. The Company’s controls over financial reporting are designed under the supervision of the Company’s President and Principal Financial Officer to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
Under the supervision and with the participation of our President and Chief Financial Officer, the Company conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures, as such term is defined under Rule 13a-15(e) promulgated under the Exchange Act, as of April 30, 2022. Based on this evaluation, management concluded that our financial disclosure controls and procedures were not effective so as to timely record, process, summarize and report financial information required to be included on our Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) reports due to the Company’s limited internal resources and lack of ability to have multiple levels of transaction review. However, as a result of our evaluation and review process, management believes that the financial statements and other information presented herewith are materially correct.
Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
As of April 30, 2022, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operations of our internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) or 15d-15(f) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and based on the criteria for effective internal control described in Internal Control – Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (as revised). Based on our evaluation, management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective so as to timely record, process, summarize and report financial information required to be included on our SEC reports due to the Company’s limited internal resources and lack of ability to have multiple levels of transaction review. However, as a result of our evaluation and review process, management believes that the financial statements and other information presented herewith are materially correct.
The management including its Principal Executive Officer/Principal Financial Officer, does not expect that its disclosure controls and procedures, or its internal controls over financial reporting will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable not absolute assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of the control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefit of controls must be considered relative to their costs.
Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected.
The Company has limited resources and as a result, a material weakness in financial reporting currently exists, because of our limited resources and personnel, including those described below.
A material weakness is a deficiency (within the meaning of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) auditing standard 5) or combination of deficiencies in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Management has determined that a material weakness exists due to a lack of segregation of duties, resulting from the Company’s limited resources and personnel.
11
Remediation Efforts to Address Deficiencies in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
As a result of these findings, management, upon obtaining sufficient capital and operations, intends to take practical, cost-effective steps in implementing internal controls, including the possible remedial measures set forth below. As of April 30, 2022, we did not have sufficient capital and/or operations to implement any of the remedial measures described below.
This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the SEC that permit us to provide only management’s report in this annual report.
(b) Change in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
The Company has not made any change in our internal control over financial reporting during the year ended April 30, 2022.

Corporate Governance
The Company does not have a compensation committee and it does not have an audit committee financial expert. It does not have a compensation committee because its Board of Directors consists of only one director whom is not independent, as he is also an officer. There is no independent audit committee financial expert because it is believed the cost related to retaining a financial expert at this time is prohibitive due to the current circumstances of the Company. Further, because there are only minimal operations at the present time, it is believed the services of a financial expert are not warranted.
Conflicts of Interest
The Company does not currently foresee any conflict of interest.
Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance
16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires the company directors and executive officers, and persons who own more than ten percent of the Company’s common stock, to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission initial reports of ownership and reports of changes of ownership of its common stock. Officers, directors and greater than ten percent shareholders are required by SEC regulation to furnish the company with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file. The Company intends to ensure to the best of its ability that all Section 16(a) filing requirements applicable to its officers, directors and greater than ten percent beneficial owners are complied with in a timely fashion.
