AMERICANN, INC.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

 

 

NOTE 1. NATURE OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

AmeriCann, Inc. ("the Company", “we”, “our” or "the Issuer") was organized under the laws of the State of Delaware on June 25, 2010. The Company changed its corporate domicile to Colorado in 2022.

 

The Company designs, develops, leases and operates state-of-the-art cannabis cultivation, processing and manufacturing facilities.

 

The Company's activities are subject to significant risks and uncertainties including the potential failure to secure funding to continue its operations.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The (a) consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2023, which has been derived from audited financial statements, and (b) the unaudited financial statements as of and for the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company's Form 10-K filed with the SEC on December 22, 2023. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, all of which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and the results of operations for the interim periods presented have been reflected herein. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Notes to the financial statements which substantially duplicate the disclosure contained in the audited financial statements for fiscal 2023 as reported in the Form 10-K have been omitted.

 

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform with current period presentation. These reclassifications have no impact on net income or loss.

 

Significant Accounting Policies

 

Restricted Cash

 

The following table provides a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash reported within the consolidated balance sheets that sum to the total of the same such amounts in the consolidated statements of cash flows:

 

   

March 31, 2024

   

September 30, 2023

 
                 

Cash and cash equivalents

  $ 513,447     $ 1,135,006

    9,967       9,967  

Total cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash shown in the cash flow statement

  $ 523,414     $ 1,144,973  

 

Amounts included in restricted cash represent those required to be set aside by the Cannabis Control Commission in Massachusetts.

 

Property and Equipment, net

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation of property and equipment begins in the month following the month when the asset is placed into service and is provided using the straight-line method for financial reporting purposes at rates based on the estimated useful lives of the assets. Estimated useful lives range from three to twenty years. Property and equipment consist of:

 

   

March 31, 2024

   

September 30, 2023

 
                 
                 

Buildings and improvements

  $ 7,854,548     $ 7,854,548  

Computer equipment

    349,576       349,576  

Furniture and equipment

    2,764       2,764  

Total

    8,206,888       8,206,888  

Accumulated depreciation

    (2,035,481 )     (1,804,357 )

Property and equipment, net

  $ 6,171,407     $ 6,402,531  

 

Depreciation expense for the six months ended March 31, 2024 and March 31, 2023 amounted to $231,124 and $225,794.

 

Leases

 

Effective October 1, 2019, we adopted Topic 842, Lease Accounting using the effective date method. Under this method, periods prior to adoption remain unchanged. We determine if an arrangement is a lease at inception.

 

7

 

 

Right-of-Use (ROU) assets represent our right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent our obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Operating lease ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Variable lease payments are not included in the calculation of the right-of-use asset and lease liability due to uncertainty of the payment amount and are recorded as lease expense in the period incurred. As most of our leases do not provide an implicit rate, we use our incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. We use the implicit rate when readily determinable. Our lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option. Lease expense for lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

Under the available practical expedient, we account for the lease and non-lease components as a single lease component for all classes of underlying assets as both a lessee and lessor. Further, we elected a short-term lease exception policy on all classes of underlying assets, permitting us to not apply the recognition requirements of this standard to short-term leases (i.e. leases with terms of 12 months or less).

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326), which requires entities to measure all expected credit losses for financial assets held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. This replaces the existing incurred loss model and is applicable to the measurement of credit losses on financial assets measured at amortized cost. This may result in the earlier recognition of allowances for losses. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted the new guidance under ASU 2016-13 in the first quarter of fiscal year 2024, and determined that the impact of the adoption on its financial statements is immaterial.

 

 

NOTE 2. GOING CONCERN 

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates, among other things, the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company had an accumulated deficit of $20,191,534 and $19,853,444 at March 31, 2024 and September 30, 2023, respectively. These matters, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. While the Company is attempting to increase operations and generate additional revenues, the Company's cash position may not be significant enough to support the Company's daily operations. Management may raise additional funds through the sale of its securities or borrowings from third parties.

 

Management believes that the actions presently being taken to further implement its business plan and generate additional revenues provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern. While the Company believes in the viability of its strategy to generate additional revenues and in its ability to raise additional funds, there can be no assurances to that effect. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company's ability to further implement its business plan and generate additional revenues. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

 

NOTE 3. NOTE RECEIVABLE

 

Notes and other receivables as of March 31, 2024 and September 30, 2023, consisted of the following:

NOTE 4.  NOTES PAYABLE

 

Unrelated

 

On August 2, 2019 the Company secured a $4,000,000 investment from an unrelated third party in the form of a loan. The loan was evidenced by a note which bore interest at the rate of 11% per year, was due and payable on August 2, 2022 and was secured by a first lien on Building 1 at the Company’s Massachusetts Cannabis Center (“MCC”).

 

The note holder also received a warrant which allows the holder to purchase 600,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a price of $1.50 per share. The warrant will expire on the earlier of (i) August 2, 2024 or (ii) twenty days after written notice to the holder that the daily Volume Weighted Average Price of the Company’s common stock was at least $4.00 for twenty consecutive trading days and the average daily trading volume of the Company’s common stock during the twenty trading days was at least 150,000 shares.

 

The broker for the loan received a cash commission of $320,000 plus warrants to purchase 48,000 shares of the Company's common stock. The warrants are exercisable at a price of $1.50 per share and expire on August 2, 2024. The cash commission and the fair value of the warrants amounting to $52,392 were recognized as a discount to the note.

 

The Company allocated the proceeds between the note and the warrants based on their relative fair values. The relative fair value of the 600,000 warrants was $562,762 which was recognized as additional paid in capital and a corresponding debt discount.

On December 4, 2020, the loan was modified and increased by $500,000 and the maturity date of the loan was extended to August 1, 2023. All other provisions of the original loan remained the same. The debt modification was deemed not substantial and was accounted for as a debt modification. The broker for the loan received a cash commission of $40,000 which was expensed when incurred.

 

In July 2023, the maturity date was further extended to December 1, 2023. On November 30, 2023, the maturity of the loan was extended to January 31, 2024. All other provisions of the previously modified loan remain the same. The debt modification was deemed not substantial and was accounted for as a debt modification. The broker for the loan received a cash commission of $7,500 which was expensed when incurred. On January 31, 2024, the maturity date of the loan was further extended until April 15, 2024. All other provisions of the previously modified loan remain the same. On April 12, 2024, the maturity of the loan was further extended until August 31, 2024. All other provisions of the previously modified loan remain the same.

 

At March 31, 2024, the outstanding principal on this note was $4,500,000 and the unamortized debt discount was $0. All debt discounts are being amortized on a straight-line basis over the term of the modified note. Amortization expense related to the debt discounts was $0 and $97,412 for the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.

 

The modified note is secured by a first lien on Building 1 at the Company’s Massachusetts Cannabis Center (“MCC”).

 

BASK. On April 7, 2016, we signed agreements with BASK. BASK is one of a limited number of organizations that has received a provisional or final registration to cultivate, process and sell medical and adult use cannabis by the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission.

 

Pursuant to the agreements, we agreed to provide BASK with financing for construction and working capital required for BASK’s approved dispensary and cultivation center in Fairhaven, MA.

 

On July 26, 2019, the Company entered into a 15-Year Triple Net lease of Building 1 of the MCC with BASK. The lease commenced on September 1, 2019 and includes an annual base rent of $138,762 and a revenue participation fee equivalent to 15% of BASK’s gross revenues. The BASK tenant receivable balance was $637,766 and $103,450 as of March 31, 2024 and September 30, 2023, respectively.

 

Related Party

 

SCP. On September 30, 2019, we entered into an amended note with Strategic Capital Partners, LLC (“SCP”), an entity controlled by Benjamin J. Barton, one of our officers and directors and principal shareholders, in the principal amount of $1,756,646, bearing interest of 9% per year and maturing on December 31, 2022. During the year ended September 30, 2022, the maturity of the note was extended to December 31, 2023. In December 2023, the note was further extended to March 31, 2024. In March 2024, the note was further extended to August 15, 2024.

 

Accrued interest on the note was $4,446 and $0 at March 31, 2024 and September 30, 2023, respectively.

 

At March 31, 2024 and September 30, 2023, the outstanding principal on this note was $581,646.

 

During the year ended September 30, 2023, the Company also incurred $180,000 of consulting expenses with SCP and paid $247,500. As of September 30, 2023, $15,000 remained unpaid. During the six months ended March 31, 2024, the Company incurred $90,000 of consulting expenses with SCP and paid $105,000. As of March 31, 2024, $0 remains outstanding.

Operating Leases

 

Office space

 

The Company leases its office space located at 1555 Blake St., Unit 502, Denver, CO 80202 for $2,500 per month with a lease term of less than 12 months from SCP, a related party. See Note 4.

 

Lease expense for office space was $15,000 for the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023.

 

Land

 

On October 17, 2016, the Company closed the acquisition of the 52.6-acre parcel of undeveloped land in Freetown, Massachusetts. The property is located approximately 47 miles southeast of Boston. The Company is developing the property as the Massachusetts Cannabis Center (“MCC”). Plans for the property include the construction of sustainable greenhouse cultivation and processing facilities that will be leased or sold to Registered Marijuana Dispensaries under the Massachusetts Medical Marijuana Program.

 

As part of a simultaneous transaction, the Company assigned the property rights to Massachusetts Medical Properties (“MMP”) for a nominal fee and entered a lease agreement pursuant to which MMP agreed to lease the property to the Company for an initial term of fifty (50) years. The Company has the option to extend the term of the lease for four (4) additional ten (10) year periods. The lease is a triple net lease, with the Company paying all real estate taxes, repairs, maintenance and insurance.

 

The lease payments will be the greater of (a) $30,000 per month; (b) $0.38 per square foot per month for any structure built on the property; or (c) 1.5% of all gross monthly sales of products sold by the Company, any assignee of the Company, or any subtenant of the Company. The lease payments will be adjusted up (but not down) every five (5) years by any increase in the Consumer Price Index.

 

Effective October 1, 2019, the Company adopted Topic 842 and recorded ROU assets and lease liabilities of $6,980,957 and $4,256,869, respectively. As part of the adoption, the prepaid land lease balance of $2,724,088 was classified as a component of the Company’s ROU assets.

 

The Company completed the construction of Building I on the leased land and on September 1, 2019, BASK commenced its 15-year sublease of Building I which includes an annual base rent of $138,762 plus 15% of BASK’s gross revenues from products produced at the MCC. This sublease income is recorded as Rental income on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations.

 

As of March 31, 2024, the Company’s right-of-use assets were $6,673,874, the Company’s current maturities of operating lease liabilities were $12,693, and the Company’s noncurrent lease liabilities were $4,197,910. During the six months ended March 31, 2024, the Company had operating cash flows from operating leases of $170,757.

We did not record any income tax expense or benefit for the six months ended March 31, 2024 or 2023. We increased our valuation allowance and reduced our net deferred tax assets to zero. Our assessment of the realization of our deferred tax assets has not changed, and as a result we continue to maintain a full valuation allowance for our net deferred tax assets as of March 31, 2024 and September 30, 2023.

 

As of March 31, 2024, we did not have any unrecognized tax benefits. There were no significant changes to the calculation since September 30, 2023.

 

 

 

NOTE 9. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

On April 12, 2024, the maturity date of the $4,500,000 (Note 4) loan was extended to August 31, 2024. All other provisions of the previously modified loan remain the same.

 

As discussed in Note 6, on July 26, 2019, the Company entered into a 15-Year Triple Net lease of Building 1 of the Massachusetts Cannabis Center with BASK, Inc.

 

On May 3, 2024:

 

 

The Company and BASK mutually agreed to terminate the lease effective August 31, 2024;

 

After August 31, 2024, AmeriCann intends to operate the building as a regulated cannabis cultivation and manufacturing operator.

 

AmeriCann and BASK have agreed that, for the last five months of the lease effective April 1, the new monthly payment by BASK will be $57,588 per month, inclusive of property taxes and Host Community Agreement fees;

 

Bask agreed to transfer to the Company its provisional Cultivation and provisional Product Manufacturing licenses. BASK will receive a credit of $40,000 for each license transferred. Any transfer of licenses is contingent upon approval from the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission;

 

BASK granted the Company the option to purchase any furniture and equipment located in the space currently occupied by BASK. The Company and BASK will agree on the items that the Company intends to purchase on or before June 1, 2024 and will attempt to agree on the value of any item to be purchased by the Company. In the event the Company and BASK are unable to agree on the value of any item, a third-party will value the item and such valuation shall become the value assigned to the item.

 

In the event the amount of the past due rent ($632,244 as of March 31, 2024) exceeds the credit (or credits) for any licenses which may be transferred to the Company by BASK and the value of any furniture or equipment purchased by the Company, the remaining amount, plus the amount remaining due on the promissory note from BASK dated September 30, 2023 (which had an outstanding balance of $369,869 as of March 31, 2024) will be converted to a promissory note which will be paid in 24 equal monthly installments without interest.

OVERVIEW

 

AmeriCann designs, develops, leases and operates state-of-the-art cannabis cultivation, processing and manufacturing facilities. AmeriCann’s team includes board members, consultants, engineers and architects who specialize in real estate development, traditional horticulture, lean manufacturing, medical research, facility construction, regulatory compliance, security, marijuana cultivation and genetics, extraction processes, and infused product development.

 

AmeriCann’s flagship project is the Massachusetts Cannabis Center. The Massachusetts Cannabis Center (“MCC”) is being developed on a 52-acre parcel located in southeastern Massachusetts. AmeriCann’s MCC project is permitted for over 800,000 sq. ft. of cannabis cultivation and processing infrastructure which is being developed in phases to support both the existing medical cannabis and the newly emerging adult-use cannabis marketplace.

 

The first phase of the project, Building 1, a 30,000 square foot cultivation and processing facility, is fully-operational and is currently 100% leased by a vertically-integrated Massachusetts cannabis company. AmeriCann generates revenue through lease arrangements with the operators that includes base rent and turnover rent (i.e., a revenue participation fee).  

 

AmeriCann, through a 100% owned subsidiary, AmeriCann Brands, Inc., has received two licenses from the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission to cultivate cannabis and provide extraction and product manufacturing support to the entire MCC project, as well as to other licensed cannabis farmers throughout regulated markets. AmeriCann Brands plans to operate in Building 2 at the MCC. In addition to large-scale extraction of cannabis plant material, AmeriCann Brands plans to produce branded consumer packaged goods including cannabis beverages, vaporizer products, edible products, non-edible products and concentrates at the state-of-the-art facility.

 

AmeriCann may replicate the brands, technology and innovations developed at its MCC project to additional markets.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Leases

 

Effective October 1, 2019, we adopted ASC 842, Lease Accounting using the effective date method. We determine if an arrangement is a lease at inception. 

 

Right-of-Use (ROU) assets represent our right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent our obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Operating lease ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Variable lease payments are not included in the calculation of the right-of-use asset and lease liability due to uncertainty of the payment amount and are recorded as lease expense in the period incurred. As most of our leases do not provide an implicit rate, we use our incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. We use the implicit rate when readily determinable. Our lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option. Lease expense for lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

Under the available practical expedient, we account for the lease and non-lease components as a single lease component for all classes of underlying assets as both a lessee and lessor. Further, we elected a short-term lease exception policy on all classes of underlying assets, permitting us to not apply the recognition requirements of this standard to short-term leases (i.e. leases with terms of 12 months or less).

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS 

 

Total Revenues

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, we generated $453,655 and $748,406 in revenue, respectively. During the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, we generated $929,284 and $1,483,172 in revenue, respectively. The decrease in revenue is due to a decrease in our tenants’ retail and wholesale revenue from products produced at the MCC.

 

Cost of Revenues

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, we incurred $0 costs of revenue. During the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, we incurred $780 and $13,615 of costs of revenue. The decrease in cost is due to the conclusion of a facilities maintenance agreement.

 

Advertising and Marketing Expenses

 

Advertising and marketing expenses were $4,475 and $3,953 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. The increase is due to an increase in marketing costs. During the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, the advertising and marketing expenses were $4,756 and $5,371, respectively. The decrease is due to a decrease in marketing costs.

 

Professional Fees  

 

Professional fees were $116,112 and $83,339 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. During the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, the professional fees were $227,963 and $203,852, respectively. The increase is primarily due to an increase in accounting fees.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses were $377,999 and $391,957 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. During the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, general and administrative fees were $781,609 and $783,263, respectively. The decrease is primarily due to a decrease in office expenses.

 

Interest Income

 

Interest income was $15,303 and $1,133 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.  During the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, interest income was $23,254 and $2,796, respectively. The increase is a result of a new note receivable.

 

Interest Expense

 

Interest expense was $136,463 and $183,668 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. During the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, interest expense was $275,520 and $370,500, respectively. The decrease is primarily attributable to decrease in amortization of debt discounts.

 

Net Operating Income/Loss 

 

We had a net loss of $(166,091) and net income of $86,622 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. We had a net loss of $(338,090) and net income of $109,367 for the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. The net loss is attributed primarily to the decrease in our tenants’ retail and wholesale revenue from products produced at the MCC.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES 

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates, among other things, the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company had an accumulated deficit of $20,191,534 and $19,853,444 at March 31, 2024 and September 30, 2023, respectively.

 

The Company is continuing to support the optimization of operations and generate additional revenues from its Massachusetts Cannabis Center (MCC).  The Company's cash position and quarterly revenue is currently significant enough to support the Company's daily operations. The Company will need to raise additional funds for the expansion of the MCC.  When Management determines expansion opportunities exist the Company may finance construction with cash from operations, a sale-lease-back, refinancing and expanding existing debt, issuance of new debt, or sales of equity. 

 

Management believes that the actions presently being taken to further implement its business plan and generate additional revenues provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern. While the Company believes in the viability of its strategy to generate additional revenues and in its ability to raise additional funds, there can be no assurances to that effect. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company's ability to further implement its business plan and generate additional revenues. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Notes Payable

 

See Note 4 of the unaudited consolidated financial statements filed with this report for information concerning our notes payable.

 

Analysis of Cash Flows 

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2024, our net cash flows used in operations were $(651,690) as compared to net cash flows provided by operations of $272,732 for the six months ended March 31, 2023. The decrease is primarily due to a decrease in our net income during the six months ended March 31, 2024 and timing of working capital payments.

 

Cash flows provided by (used in) investing activities were $30,131 and $(210,988) for the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively, consisting of payments received on notes receivable.

 

Cash flows used in financing activities were $0 and $150,000 for the six months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively, consisting of principal payments on notes payable in 2023.

 

We do not have any firm commitments from any person to provide us with any additional capital.

 

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

 

As of March 31, 2024, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, with the participation of our President and Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934), as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.  Based on such evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective for the same reasons that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective.

 

Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

As indicated in our Form 10-K filed on December 22, 2023, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of September 30, 2023 at the reasonable assurance level, as a result of a material weaknesses primarily related to a lack of a sufficient number of personnel with appropriate training and experience in accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP, limited or no segregation of duties, and lack of independent directors.

 

We are currently in the process of evaluating the steps necessary to remediate these material weaknesses.

 

Change in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarterly period ended March 31, 2024 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

We believe that a control system, no matter how well designed and operated, cannot provide absolute assurance that the objectives of the control system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within any company have been detected.
