|i “Gross Merchandise Value” (GMV) means the total value of all merchandise and services sold over a given period of time through the Company’s ESG platform of product and services offerings. Gross Merchandise Value is a metric most commonly used by e-commerce companies. It is intended to measure the growth of the business or use of a platform in selling merchandise and services, some or all of which may be owned by others and is therefore not all revenue to the platform owner or provider (such as the Company). In the Company’s case, GMV includes the value of the food and merchandise ordered and the gross fees charged by the Company to customers on account of rides and deliveries, a substantial portion of which the Company does not recognize as revenue. The most directly comparable or correlated GAAP financial measure in the context of our Company is revenue which, for Q3 2022 was $14,291,749 and $7,811,810 in Q3 2021. Note that GMV is a non-GAAP financial measure, meaning that it is not a standardized financial measure under the financial reporting framework used to prepare the Company’s financial statements and it might not be comparable to similar financial measures disclosed by other issuers.|
