(EDGAR Online via COMTEX) -- Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Certain statements, other than purely historical information, including estimates, projections, statements relating to our business plans, objectives, and expected operating results, and the assumptions upon which those statements are based, are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words "believes," "project," "expects," "anticipates," "estimates," "intends," "strategy," "plan," "may," "will," "would," "will be," "will continue," "will likely result," and similar expressions. We intend such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe-harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and are including this statement for purposes of complying with those safe-harbor provisions. Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and assumptions that are subject to risks and uncertainties which may cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. Our ability to predict results or the actual effect of future plans or strategies is inherently uncertain. Factors which could have a material adverse affect on our operations and future prospects on a consolidated basis include, but are not limited to:
The business plan of the company will no longer be focused on a chewing gum delivery system but it will re-focus its activities to the development of cannabinoid, cannabinoid-like, and non-cannabinoid pharmaceutical active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), pharmaceutical medicines made from cannabinoid, cannabinoid-like, and non- cannabinoid APIs and the development of ingredients and products with the aim of achieving European novel food approval of cannabinoid-based, cannabinoid-like and non-cannabinoid ingredients and products .In addition, the company plans to develop such bulk ingredientsfor supply into the cosmetic sector.
Because the IP relating to the development of a chewing gum with nutraceutical/functional ingredients is not relevant to the pharmaceuticaldevelopment that the company plans to undertake, the IP surrounding the chewing gum may no longer benefit the company's operations going forward. While company has not yet decided on the proper disposition of the IP at present, the company will likely divest ownership in the near future. We are in the process of updating our website to reflect this change.
The new business plan of the company is for the company's operations to be repositioned as a fully regulatory- compliant pharmaceutical company specializing in the development of the following:
cannabinoid, cannabinoid-like and non-cannabinoid pharmaceutical active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) globally;
pharmaceutical medicines made from cannabinoid, cannabinoid-like and non-cannabinoid APIs globally;
cannabinoid, cannabinoid-like and non-cannabinoid food-grade ingredients with the aim of achieving European novel food approval of such ingredients;
non-pharmaceutical (nutraceutical / dietary supplement) productscontaining cannabinoids, cannabinoid-like and non-cannabinoid food-grade ingredients with the aim of achieving European novel food approval of such products; and
Supply of cosmetic ingredients to potential customers who may develop products containing cannabinoids, cannabinoid-like and non-cannabinoid ingredients
The controlled drugs / cannabinoid pharmaceutical market worldwide has experienced exponential growth over the past few years in the development of cannabinoid medicines. It is Alterola's intention to develop ingredients and products on a global basis, fully compliant with the appropriate international laws and regulations and also compliant with the relevant national laws and regulations on a territory-by-territory basis.

In December 2020, the company retained new management and board members that have experience in the pharmaceutical, botanical and nutraceutical industries. Further to this objective, the company is also interested in recruiting key executives and personnel that have experience in the controlled drugs / cannabinoid medicines industry. The focus will be on recruiting outstanding talents that have contributed or can contribute more in the future with the company's expansion plans.
The company also has interest in licensing / acquiring other IP from companies that have IP pertinent to the aforementioned products the company plans to develop. Under consideration are companies that have existing pharmaceutical research and/or development or manufacturing capability or associated IP. Some of these companies have IP which is available to integrate into our company strategy. These acquisition or in-licensing opportunities are expected to facilitate the company to develop API and medicines globally and food-grade ingredients and products for the food and beverage industry in Europe.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of December 31, 2020, we had $15,273 in current assets and currently liabilities of $368,494. We had a working capital deficit of $353,221 as of December 31, 2020, as compared with a working capital deficit of $323,221 as of September 30, 2020.
We had no operating, investing or financing cash flows to report for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.
Based upon our current financial condition, we do not have sufficient cash to operate our business at the current level for the next 12 months. We intend to fund operations through increased sales and debt and/or equity financing arrangements, which may be insufficient to fund expenditures or other cash requirements. We plan to seek additional financing in a private equity offering to secure funding for operations. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in raising additional funding. If we are not able to secure additional funding, the implementation of our business plan will be impaired. There can be no assurance that such additional financing will be available to us on acceptable terms or at all.
Off Balance Sheet Arrangements
As of December 31, 2020, we had no off balance sheet arrangements.
Our financial statements were prepared assuming we will continue as a going concern which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. We have incurred cumulative losses of $1,283,788 for the period July 21, 2008 (inception date) through December 31, 2020, expect to incur further losses in the development of our business and have been dependent on funding operations through the issuance of convertible debt and private sale of equity securities. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans include continuing to finance operations through the private or public placement of debt and/or equity securities and the reduction of expenditures. However, no assurance can be given at this time as to whether we will be able to achieve these objectives. The financial statements do not include any adjustment relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern.
