The Company has not recorded tax benefits on the loss before income taxes due to a full valuation allowance that offsets potential deferred tax assets resulting from net operating loss (“NOL”) carry forwards, reflecting the inability to demonstrate the realizability of such loss carry forwards.

Tax expenses recorded in the quarter ended September 30, 2022 are attributable to Blade France net profits.

As of September 30, 2022, the Company has a net deferred tax liability, due to what is referred to as a “naked credit.” The naked credit exists when a deferred tax liability can only be offset up to 80% by NOLs generated in tax years beginning in 2018 and beyond, as well as NOLs available after consideration of IRC Section 382 limitation. The remaining portion that cannot be used remains as a liability. In future years, if the deferred tax assets are determined by management to be “more likely than not” to be realized, the recognized tax benefits relating to the reversal of the valuation allowance as of September 30, 2022 will be recorded. The Company will continue to assess and evaluate strategies that will enable the deferred tax asset, or portion thereof, to be utilized, and will reduce the valuation allowance appropriately as such time when it is determined that the “more likely than not” criteria is satisfied.

The Company recorded an income tax benefit of $3,643 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. The Company follows the provisions of the accounting guidance on accounting for income taxes which requires recognition of
deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the consolidated financial statements or tax returns. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the difference between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. A valuation allowance is provided to reduce the deferred tax asset to a level which, more likely than not, will be realized.
