NOTE 17 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

The Company evaluated subsequent events and transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date up to the date that the financial statements were issued. Based upon this review, other than as described below, the Company did not identify any subsequent events that would have required adjustment or disclosure in the financial statements.

 

New Subsidiary

 

In October 2022, the Company formed a wholly owned subsidiary, Avalon Laboratory Services, Inc., a Delaware company. 

 

Cease all operations in the People’s Republic of China

 

In November of 2022, the Company decided to cease all operations in the People’s Republic of China with the exception of a small administrative office, Avalon Shanghai. The Company, through its Nevada Subsidiary Avactis Biosciences Inc., will continue to own Avactis Nanjing Biosciences Ltd. However, Avactis Nanjing Biosciences Ltd. only owns a patent and is not considered an operating entity. The Company does not expect nor does it plan that there will be further revenue generated from PRC operations in the foreseeable future. The impact of ceasing operations will not have a material effect on the Company’s operations.
