AMERI HOLDINGS, INC.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JUNE 30, 2019

NOTE 1.
DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:

AMERI Holdings, Inc. (“AMERI”, the “Company”, “we” or “our”) is a company that, through the operations of its eleven subsidiaries, provides SAP TM cloud and digital enterprise services to clients worldwide. Headquartered in Suwanee, Georgia, we typically go to market both vertically by industry and horizontally by product/technology specialties and provide our customers with a wide range of business and technology offerings. We work with customers, primarily within North America, to improve process, reduce costs and increase revenue through the judicious use of technology. The Company earns almost all of its revenue from North America. The Company takes the position that all of its businesses operate as a single segment.

NOTE 2.
BASIS OF PRESENTATION:

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or U.S. GAAP, and Article 10 of Regulation S-X under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Certain information and disclosure notes normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations, although we believe that the disclosures made are adequate to ensure the information presented is not misleading.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (which were of a normal, recurring nature) that, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly our financial position, results of operations and cash flows as of and for the interim periods presented. All intercompany transactions have been eliminated in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

Our comprehensive income (loss) consists of net income (loss) plus or minus any periodic currency translation adjustments.

The results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for any future period. The following information should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

New Standards to Be Implemented

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. Under this new standard, goodwill impairment would be measured as the amount by which a reporting unit's carrying value exceeds its fair value, not to exceed the carrying value of goodwill. This ASU eliminates existing guidance that requires an entity to determine goodwill impairment by calculating the implied fair value of goodwill by hypothetically assigning the fair value of a reporting unit to all of its assets and liabilities as if that reporting unit had been acquired in a business combination. This update is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those periods. Early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment test performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. Based on the Company’s preliminary assessment of the foregoing update, it does not anticipate such update will have a material impact its financial statements.

Standards Implemented

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)”. This new standard replaces the existing guidance on leases and requires the lessee to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with lease terms equal to or greater than twelve months. For finance leases, the lessee would recognize interest expense and amortization of the right-of-use asset, and for operating leases, the lessee would recognize total lease expense on a straight-line basis. This standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning on or after December 15, 2018. Upon adoption, entities will be required to use a modified retrospective transition which provides for certain practical expedients. Entities are required to apply the new standard at the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented. Early adoption of this new standard is permitted. The Company has adopted this new standard during the current quarter. The Company does not expect the requirement to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for operating leases to have a material impact on the presentation of its consolidated statements of financial position.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments (ASU 2016-15), which clarifies how companies present and classify certain cash receipts and cash payments in the statement of cash flows. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The company has implemented the above standard effective from Quarter 3 of 2018 and has made the respective disclosures in Statement of Cash Flow.

BUSINESS COMBINATIONS:

Acquisition of Ameri Georgia

On November 20, 2015, we completed the acquisition of Bellsoft, Inc., a consulting company based in Lawrenceville, Georgia, which specializes in SAP software, business intelligence, data warehousing and other enterprise resource planning services. Following the acquisition, the name of Bellsoft, Inc. was changed to Ameri100 Georgia Inc. (“Ameri Georgia”). Ameri Georgia has operations in the United States, Canada and India.

The total purchase price of $9.9 million was allocated to net working capital of $4.6 million, intangibles of $1.8 million, taking into consideration projected revenue from the acquired list of Ameri Georgia customers over a period of three years, and goodwill.

In connection with the merger, Virtuoso’s name was changed to Ameri100 Virtuoso Inc. The Virtuoso acquisition did not constitute a significant acquisition for the Company for purposes of Regulation S-X.

The total purchase price of $1.8 million was allocated to intangibles of $0.9 million, taking into consideration projected revenue from the acquired list of Virtuoso customers over a period of three years, and the balance was allocated to goodwill.

(a)
A cash payment in the amount of $3,000,000 at closing;

NOTE 4.
REVENUE RECOGNITION:

We recognize revenue in accordance with the Accounting Standard Codification 606 “Revenue Recognition.” Revenue is recognized when all of the following criteria are met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (2) delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, (3) the seller’s price to buyer is fixed and determinable, and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. We recognize revenue from information technology services as the services are provided. Service revenues are recognized based on contracted hourly rates, as services are rendered or upon completion of specified contracted services and acceptance by the customer.
 
NOTE 5.
INTANGIBLE ASSETS:

The Company’s intangible assets primarily consists of the customer lists it acquired through various acquisitions.  We amortize our intangible assets that have finite lives using either the straight-line method or based on estimated future cash flows to approximate the pattern in which the economic benefit of the asset will be utilized. Amortization expense was $0.5 million and 0.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018 respectively. This amortization expense relates to customer lists which expire through 2022.
 
During the year ended December 31, 2018, we determined, based upon the results of our annual goodwill impairment testing as further described in Note 6, that a triggering event had occurred with respect to certain customer lists contained in the reporting units where goodwill impairment was determined to have occurred, and recorded an impairment charge of $0.9 million. The determination of the fair value of intangible assets requires significant inputs, judgments and estimates. These fair value measurements, and related inputs, are considered to be Level 3 measures under the fair value hierarchy as further described in Note 12.

NOTE 6.
GOODWILL:

Goodwill represents the excess of the aggregate purchase price over the fair value of the net assets acquired in business combinations. The total value of the Company’s goodwill was $13.7 million as of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

As per Company policy, goodwill impairment tests are conducted on an annual basis and any impairment is reflected in the Company’s Statements of Operations.

During the year ended December 31, 2018, as a result of performing our annual impairment testing, we determined that impairment existed on certain of our reporting units and recorded impairment charges amounting to $8.2 million as a result of our impairment testing.  The full goodwill impairment on Virtuoso, Bigtech and Ameri Consulting Service Pvt. Ltd, and the partial goodwill impairment on Ameri Arizona were primarily driven by declines in estimated future cash flows to be generated by the reporting units as these reporting units that have experienced declining cash flows that what were expected at the time of each acquisition. The determination of the fair value of a reporting unit requires significant inputs, judgments and estimates. These fair value measurements, and related inputs, are considered to be Level 3 measures under the fair value hierarchy as further described in Note 12.

NOTE 7.
EARNINGS (LOSS) PER SHARE:

Basic income (loss) per share is computed based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. When applicable, diluted income (loss) per share is calculated using two approaches. The first approach, the treasury stock method, reflects the potential dilution that could occur if outstanding stock options, warrants, restricted stock units and outstanding shares to be awarded to satisfy contingent consideration for the business combinations (collectively, the “Equity Awards”) were exercised and issued. The second approach, the if converted method, reflects the potential dilution of the Equity Awards, the 8% Convertible Unsecured Promissory Notes (the “2017 Notes”) described in Note 10 being exchanged for common stock. Under this method, interest expense, net of tax, if any, associated with the 2017 Notes, up through redemption, is added back to net income attributable to common stockholders and the shares outstanding are increased by the underlying 2017 Notes are considered to be issued.

For the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, no shares related to the issuance of common stock upon exercise of the Equity Awards or the exchange of the 2017 Notes for common stock were considered in the calculation of diluted loss per share, as the effect would be anti-dilutive due to net losses attributable to common stockholders for both periods.
 
A reconciliation of net loss attributable to common stockholders and weighted average shares used in computing basic and diluted net loss per share is as follows:

OTHER ITEMS:

During the six months ended June 30 2019, the Company has not granted any restricted stock units and stock options to purchase Company’s common stock to key employees or directors out of Company’s 2015 Equity Incentive Award Plan. The company has booked charges of $0.2 million as stock compensation expenses for the six months ended June 30 2019 and $0.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

NOTE 9.
BANK DEBT:

On January 23, 2019, certain subsidiaries of the Company, including Ameri100 Arizona LLC, Ameri100 Georgia, Inc., Ameri100 California, Inc. and Ameri and Partners, Inc., as borrowers (individually and collectively, “Borrower”) entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) for a credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) with North Mill Capital LLC, as lender (the “Lender”). The Loan Agreement has an initial term of two years from the closing date, with renewal thereafter if Lender, at its option, agrees in writing to extend the term for additional one year periods (the “Term”). The Loan Agreement is collateralized by a first-priority security interest in all of the assets of Borrower. In addition, (i) pursuant to a Corporate Guaranty entered into by the Company in favor of the Lender (the “Corporate Guaranty”), the Company has guaranteed the Borrower’s obligations under the Credit Facility and (ii) pursuant to a Security Agreement entered into between the Company and Lender (the “Security Agreement”), the Company granted a first-priority security interest in all of its assets to Lender.

The Borrowers received an initial advance on January 23, 2019 in an amount of approximately $2.85 million (the “Initial Advance”). Borrowings under the Credit Facility accrue interest at the prime rate (as designated by Wells Fargo Bank, National Association) plus one and three quarters percentage points (1.75%), but in no event shall the interest rate be less than seven and one-quarter percent (7.25%). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Loan Documents, the minimum monthly interest payable by Borrower on the Advances (as defined in the Loan Agreement) in any month shall be calculated based on an average Daily Balance (as defined in the Loan Agreement) of Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000) for such month.  For the first year of the Term, Borrower shall pay to Lender a facility fee equal to $50,000, due in equal monthly installments, with additional facility fees due to Lender in the event borrowings exceed certain thresholds and with additional facility fees due and payable in later years or upon later milestones. In addition, Borrower shall pay to Lender a monthly fee (the “Servicing Fee”) in an amount equal to one-eighth percent (.125%) of the average Daily Balance (as defined in the Loan Agreement) during each month on or before the first day of each calendar month during the Term.

The Company used approximately $2.75 million of the Initial Advance to repay all of its outstanding obligations under the Credit Facility. Upon payment, the Company’s obligations under the Credit Facility were terminated.

Borrower also agreed to certain negative covenants in the Loan Agreement, including that they will not, without the prior written consent of Lender, enter into any extraordinary transactions, dispose of assets, merge, acquire, or consolidate with or into any other business organization or restructure. As of June 30, 2019, the principal balance and accrued interest under the Credit Facility amounted to $4 million.
 
NOTE 10.
CONVERTIBLE NOTES:

On March 7, 2017, we completed the sale and issuance of 8% Convertible Unsecured Promissory Notes (the “2017 Notes”) for aggregate proceeds to us of $1.25 million from four accredited investors, including one of the Company’s then-directors, Dhruwa N. Rai, and David Luci, who became a director of the Company in February 2018. The 2017 Notes were issued pursuant to Securities Purchase Agreements between the Company and each investor. The 2017 Notes bear interest at 8% per annum until maturity in March 2020, with interest being paid annually on the first, second and third anniversaries of the issuance of the 2017 Notes beginning in March 2018. From and after an event of default and for so long as the event of default is continuing, the 2017 Notes will bear default interest at the rate of 10% per annum. The 2017 Notes can be prepaid by us at any time without penalty. As of March 31, 2019, all interest payments due on the 2017 Notes have been paid in full.

During this first quarter of 2019 the company repaid $0.25 million towards 2017 notes.

The 2017 Notes are convertible into shares of our common stock at a conversion price equal to $2.80. The holders of the 2017 Notes have the right, at their option, at any time and from time to time to convert, in part or in whole, the outstanding principal amount and all accrued and unpaid interest under the 2017 Notes into shares of the Company’s common stock at the conversion price.

The 2017 Notes rank junior to our secured credit facility with Sterling National Bank. The 2017 Notes also include certain negative covenants including, without the investors’ approval, restrictions on dividends and other restricted payments and reclassification of its stock.

COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES:

Operating Leases

The Company's principal facility is located in Suwanee, Georgia. The Company also leases office space in various locations with expiration dates between 2019 and 2021. The lease agreements often include leasehold improvement incentives, escalating lease payments, renewal provisions and other provisions which require the Company to pay taxes, insurance, maintenance costs, or defined rent increases. All of the Company's leases are accounted for as operating leases. Rent expense is recorded over the lease terms on a straight-line basis. Rent expense was $169,340 and $147,751 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT:

We utilize the following valuation hierarchy for disclosure of the inputs to valuation used to measure fair value. This hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three broad levels as follows:
 

Level 1 inputs are quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

Level 2 inputs are quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly through market corroboration, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument; and

Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs based on our own assumptions used to measure assets and liabilities at fair value.
 
A financial asset or liability’s classification within the hierarchy is determined based upon the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.
 
The following table sets forth the financial assets, measured at fair value, by level within the fair value hierarchy as of June 30, 2019:

The fair value of the contingent consideration was estimated using a discounted cash flow technique with significant inputs that are not observable in the market. The significant inputs not supported by market activity included our probability assessments of expected future cash flows related to the acquisitions during the earn-out period, appropriately discounted considering the uncertainties associated with the obligation, and calculated in accordance with the respective terms of the share purchase agreements.
 
No financial instruments were transferred into or out of Level 3 classification during the period ended June 30 2019 and year ended December 31, 2018.

NOTE 13.
PRIVATE OFFERING:

On July 25, 2018, we entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Initial Securities Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional and accredited investors (“Initial Purchasers”) for the sale of 5,000,000 shares of our common stock (“Initial Shares”) and warrants to purchase a total of 4,000,001 shares (“Initial Warrant Shares”) of our common stock (“Initial Purchaser Warrants”) for total consideration of approximately $6,000,000 (“Initial Investment”). On July 30, 2018, we issued an aggregate of 3,250,000 of the Initial Shares to the Initial Purchasers, with the remaining Initial Shares to be issued pursuant to pre-funded Warrants, subject to adjustment.  The $6,000,000 purchase price paid by the Initial Purchasers on July 30, 2018 represents the entire purchase price for the Initial Shares and the Initial Purchaser Warrants (excluding the exercise price to be paid upon the exercise of Initial Purchaser Warrants), including upon the issuance of additional Shares (through the adjustment of a pre-funded warrant) and for additional Warrant Shares issuable upon the occurrence of certain events described below.

On August 21, 2018, we entered into a second securities purchase agreement (the “Second Securities Purchase Agreement”, and together with the Initial Securities Purchase Agreement, the “Purchase Agreements”) with an accredited investor (the “Additional Purchaser”, and with the Initial Purchaser, the “Purchasers”) for the sale of 500,417 shares of our common stock, via a pre-funded warrant due to share issuance limitations (the “Additional Shares”, and with the Initial Shares, the “Common Stock”), and warrants to purchase 400,333 shares (the “Additional Warrant Shares”, and with the Initial Warrant Shares, the “Warrant Shares”) of our common stock (the “Additional Purchaser Warrants”, and with the Initial Purchaser Warrants, the “Purchaser Warrants”) for gross proceeds of approximately $600,000 (the “Additional Investment”). The Additional Investment was made in connection with, and substantially on the same terms and using the same forms as, the private placement of the Initial Shares and Initial Purchaser Warrants (such private placement and the Additional Investment, the “Private Placement”).  The $600,000 purchase price paid by the Additional Purchaser on August 21, 2018 represents the entire purchase price for the Additional Shares and the Additional Purchaser Warrants (excluding the exercise price to be paid upon the exercise of Additional Purchaser Warrants), including upon the issuance of additional Shares (through the adjustment of a pre-funded warrant, all pre-funded warrants with the Purchaser Warrants, the “Warrants”) and for additional Warrant Shares issuable upon the occurrence of certain events described below.

The initial price per share of Common Stock equaled $1.20 and the initial per share exercise price of the Purchaser Warrants equaled $1.60.  The per share purchase price and the exercise price were subject to adjustment as described below.  The Initial Purchaser Warrants are immediately exercisable, subject to ownership limitations described below, and expire five years after the date of issuance.  The Initial Purchaser Warrants are exercisable on a cashless basis six months after the issuance date if there is no effective registration statement registering the resale of the shares underlying the Initial Purchaser Warrants. The Additional Purchaser was not issued any shares at the closing of the Additional Investment, due to Nasdaq stock issuance limitations at the time of closing, but the Additional Shares will be issued upon the exercise of a pre-funded warrant for no additional consideration to the Company. The Additional Purchaser Warrants and the Additional Purchaser’s pre-funded warrant are currently exercisable, subject to ownership limitations described below, and expire five years after the date of issuance. The Warrants contain provisions for the adjustment of the number of shares issuable upon the exercise of the warrant and of the exercise price in the event of stock dividends, splits, mergers, asset sales, tender or exchange offers, reclassifications, reorganizations or recapitalizations, combinations, or the like.
 
The per share purchase price (through the pre-funded Warrants) and Warrant exercise price was automatically adjusted lower (the “Price Adjustment”) to 80% (with respect to the purchase price of the Common Stock) and 110% (with respect to the exercise price of the Warrants) of the lowest of the average daily prices on the 6 trading days following each of: (i) the date our stockholders approved the Private Placement transaction (such approval was obtained on September 27, 2018) and (ii) the date a registration statement covering the resale of securities being issued in the Private Placement was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) (such registration statement on Form S-1, file no. 333-227011, was declared effective on October 23, 2018 (the “Effective Registration”)). Due to the Price Adjustment, the lowest purchase price of $0.29 for the Common Stock issued at closing under the Purchase Agreements and pursuant to the pre-funded Warrants was achieved, and all 22,758,621 shares registered under the Effective Registration as issued or issuable under the Purchase Agreements and pursuant to the pre-funded Warrants were issued to the selling stockholders.  In addition, the exercise price of the Purchaser Warrants was subject to the Price Adjustment, which has resulted in 22,544,139 shares of common stock being issuable under the Purchaser Warrants when exercised. The Purchaser Warrants have been fully adjusted and neither the exercise price or the number of shares issuable under such warrants are subject to further adjustment, except pursuant to typical anti-dilution provisions.
 
In accordance with the exercise provisions of the Purchaser Warrants, the 22,544,139 shares issuable under the Purchaser Warrants following the full Price Adjustment was determined by holding constant the aggregate exercise price of $7,040,534.40 for the Purchaser Warrants at the time of closing of the Private Placement (which was calculated based on 4,400,334 total Purchaser Warrants at the closing date multiplied by the exercise price of $1.60, which equals $7,040,534.40), and then dividing the $7,040,534.40 aggregate exercise price by the post-Price Adjustment exercise price of $0.3123 to get 22,544,139 shares.
 
The Company has allocated the aggregate gross proceeds received to the Purchaser Warrants, the Initial Shares issued and the pre-funded warrants. Due to the reset features present in the Purchaser Warrants along with the existence of down-round protection in the event of future financing transactions at lower prices, the Purchaser Warrants were determined to be derivative financial instruments and therefore, have been recorded as a liability (“Warrant Liability”) in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. The Purchaser Warrants were initially recorded at fair value with fair value determined utilizing a Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected term of 5 years; expected volatility of 111.8%; risk free interest rate of 2.37% and an expected dividend yield of zero. The calculated aggregate fair value of $1,429,000 was reflected as Warrant Liability. The remaining proceeds received under the Purchase Agreements were allocated to the Initial Shares and pre-funded warrants and recorded within stockholder’s equity. The fair value of the Purchaser Warrants was reassessed to reflect the Price Adjustment and number of shares issuable upon exercise. The resulting increase in the fair value of the Purchaser Warrants of $2,760,819 was reflected as “Changes in Fair Value of Warrant Liability” within the accompanying consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss) during the year ended December 31 2018. For June 30 2019, the Purchaser Warrants were reassessed to reflect the Price Adjustment and number of shares issuable upon exercise. The resulting increase in the fair value of the Purchaser Warrants of $61,715 was reflected as “Changes in Fair Value of Warrant Liability” within the accompanying consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss).
 
Under the terms of all of the Warrants, a selling stockholder may not exercise Warrants to the extent such exercise would cause such selling stockholder, together with its affiliates and attribution parties, to beneficially own a number of shares of common stock which would exceed 4.99% or 9.99%, as applicable, of our then outstanding common stock following such exercise, excluding for purposes of such determination shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants which have not been exercised. In addition, the Warrants have transaction-specific anti-dilution provisions.
 
A.G.P. / Alliance Global Partners (“AGP”) acted as exclusive placement agent for the issuance and sale of the securities in the Private Placement. We agreed to pay AGP an aggregate fee equal to 7% of the gross proceeds received by us from the sale of the securities in the transaction, plus expenses. We also agreed to grant to AGP or its designees warrants to purchase up to 150,000 shares of our common stock (the “Placement Agent Warrants”). The Placement Agent Warrants are currently exercisable and terminate on July 27, 2022. The Placement Agent Warrants have an exercise price of $1.32 per share. The terms of the Placement Agent Warrants are otherwise substantially similar to the terms of the Private Placement Warrants, except the Placement Agent Warrants have customary anti-dilution provisions and do not have the Price Adjustment mechanism. The Placement Agent Warrants were valued at the date of grant utilizing a Black-Scholes option pricing model with substantially similar assumptions to those used for the Purchaser Warrants. The resulting fair value of $49,000 was recorded within stockholder’s equity as a cost of the Private Placement transaction.
 
2018 Preferred Stock Amendment

On June 22, 2018, we entered into an Amendment Agreement with Lone Star Value Investors, LP (“LSV”), pursuant to which we and LSV agreed to the amendment and restatement of the certificate of designations (the “Amendment”) for our Series A Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred”) and the issuance of warrants (the “Amendment Warrants”) for the purchase of 5,000,000 shares of our common stock to holders of the Series A Preferred (the “Warrant Issuance”), provided that the Amendment and the Warrant Issuance were subject to approval by our stockholders at our 2018 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2018 Annual Meeting”).

As the Amendment and the Warrant Issuance were approved by our stockholders at the 2018 Annual Meeting, the Amendment, was filed with the Delaware Secretary of State following stockholder approval, providing for, among other things:


(a)
the payment of the March 31, 2018 dividend payment in-kind in shares of Series A Preferred;


(b)
elimination of any prior default in respect of non-payment of accrued dividends through the filing effective date of the Amendment (the “Effective Date”);


(c)
payment in-kind in shares of Series A Preferred of dividends for all dividend periods from April 1, 2018 through March 31, 2020 at a rate of 2% per annum of the liquidation preference (the “Adjusted Rate”); and


(d)
commencing April 1, 2020, we will pay cash dividends per share at a rate per annum equal to the Adjusted Rate multiplied by the liquidation preference; provided, however, dividends for periods ending after April 1, 2020 may be paid at the election of our Board of Directors in-kind through the issuance of additional shares of Series A Preferred for up to four dividend periods in any consecutive 36-month period, determined on a rolling basis.

In addition, the Amendment revised the change of control definition to mean a change in control of at least 70% of the voting power of all shares of stock of the Company and clarified that a change of control shall not be deemed to be a dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company. The Amendment also eliminated voting rights with respect to the authorization, creation or issuance of any securities ranking senior or equal to the Series A Preferred.

Following our 2018 Annual Meeting, promptly following the effectiveness of the Amendment, the Company issued an aggregate of 19,543 shares of our Series A Preferred to holders of our Series A Preferred, on a pro rata basis, as payment of accrued in-kind dividends owed on such preferred stock and completed the Warrant Issuance to holders of the Series A Preferred at such time.

The Amendment Warrants are only exercisable for cash, with an exercise price of $1.50 per share, for five years from the date of issuance. In the event that the closing price of our common stock is $2.00 or higher for ten trading days out of a fifteen consecutive trading day period, the Company shall have the option, in its sole discretion, to elect to accelerate the termination date of the Amendment Warrants to such date that is 30 days (or more, in the Company’s sole discretion) following the date of such election. Following such accelerated termination date, any unexercised Amendment Warrants shall automatically be canceled without any further obligations on the part of the Company or the holders of such Amendment Warrants. The Amendment Warrants were valued utilizing a Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected term of 5 years; expected volatility of 111.8%; risk free interest rate of 2.37% and an expected dividend yield of zero.

ITEM 2.
MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements (and notes thereto) included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. See "Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" included elsewhere herein.

We use the terms "we," "our," "us," "AMERI" and "the Company" in this report to refer to AMERI Holdings, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries.

Company History

We were incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware in February 1994 as Spatializer Audio Laboratories, Inc., which was a shell company immediately prior to our completion of a “reverse merger” transaction on May 26, 2015, in which we caused Ameri100 Acquisition, Inc., a Delaware corporation and our newly created, wholly owned subsidiary, to be merged with and into Ameri and Partners Inc (“Ameri and Partners”), a Delaware corporation (the “Merger”).  On May 26, 2015, we completed the Merger, in which we caused Ameri100 Acquisition, Inc., a Delaware corporation and our newly created, wholly owned subsidiary, to be merged with and into Ameri and Partners (doing business as Ameri100), a Delaware corporation. As a result of the Merger, Ameri and Partners became our wholly owned operating subsidiary. The Merger was consummated under Delaware law, pursuant to an Agreement of Merger and Plan of Reorganization, dated as of May 26, 2015 (the “Merger Agreement”), and in connection with the Merger we changed our name to AMERI Holdings, Inc. We are headquartered in Suwanee, Georgia.

Overview

We specialize in delivering SAP cloud, digital and enterprise services to clients worldwide. Our SAP focus allows us to provide technological solutions to a broad and growing base of clients. Our model inverts the conventional global delivery model wherein offshore IT service providers are based abroad and maintain a minimal presence in the United States. With a strong SAP focus, our client partnerships anchor around SAP cloud and digital services. We pursue an acquisition strategy that seeks to disrupt the established business model of offshore IT service providers.

We generate revenue by providing consulting services under written service contracts with our customers. The service contracts we enter into generally fall into two categories: (1) time-and-materials contracts and (2) fixed-price contracts.

When a customer enters into a time-and-materials or fixed-price (or a periodic retainer-based) contract, the revenue is recognized in accordance with the deliverables of each contract. If the deliverables involve separate units of accounting, the consideration from the arrangement is measured and allocated to the separate units, based on vendor specific objective evidence of the value for each deliverable.

The revenue under time and materials contracts is recognized as services are rendered and performed at contractually agreed upon rates. Revenue pursuant to fixed-price contracts is recognized under the proportional performance method of accounting. We routinely evaluate whether revenue and profitability should be recognized in the current period. We estimate the proportional performance on fixed-price contracts on a monthly basis utilizing hours incurred to date as a percentage of total estimated hours to complete the project.

For the three months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, sales to five major customers accounted for 49% and 40% of our total revenue, respectively. For the three months ended June 30, 2019, two of our customers contributed 14% and 12% of our revenue. For the comparable period in 2018, one of our customers contributed 13% of our revenue

For the six months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, sales to five major customers accounted for 46% and 39% of our total revenue, respectively. Two of our customers contributed 14% and 11% of our revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2019. For the comparable period in 2018, two of our customers contributed 12% and 11% of our revenue.

We continue to explore strategic alternatives to improve the market position and profitability of our product and service offerings in the marketplace, generate additional liquidity for the Company, and enhance our valuation. We expect to pursue our goals during the next twelve months through organic growth and through other strategic alternatives. Some of these alternatives have included, and could continue to include, selective acquisitions. The Company has obtained financing and additional capital from the sale of equity and incurrence of indebtedness in the past, and continues to consider capital raising and financing from the sale of various types of equity and incurrence of indebtedness to provide capital for our business plans and operations in the future.

Matters that May or Are Currently Affecting Our Business

The main challenges and trends that could affect or are affecting our financial results include:


Our ability to raise additional capital, if and when  needed;


Our ability to enter into additional technology-management and consulting agreements, to diversify our client base and to expand the geographic areas we serve;


Our ability to attract competent, skilled professionals and on-demand technology partners for our operations at acceptable prices to manage our overhead;


Our ability to acquire other technology services companies and integrate them with our existing business; and


Our ability to control our costs of operation as we expand our organization and capabilities.

Revenues

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2019 decreased by $0.01 million, or 1%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2018.

For the three months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, sales to five major customers accounted for 49% and 40% of our total revenue, respectively. for the three months ended June 30, 2019 two of our customers contributed 14% and 12% of our revenue. For the comparable period in 2018, one of our customers contributed 13% of our revenue. We derived most of our revenues from our customers located in North America for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018.

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2019 decreased by $0.4 million, or 2%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2018, mainly because we did not pursue certain low margin professional services business.

For the six months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, sales to five major customers accounted for 46% and 39% of our total revenue, respectively. Two of our customers contributed 14% and 11% of our revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2019. For the comparable period in 2018, two of our customers contributed 12% and 11% of our revenue. We derived most of our revenues from our customers located in North America for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018.

Gross Margin

Our gross margin was 22% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and for the comparable period in 2018.

Our gross margin was 22% for the six months ended June 30, 2019, as compared to 21% for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Our target gross margins in future periods are anticipated to be in the range of 20% to 25% based on a mix of project revenues and professional service revenues. However, there is no assurance that we will achieve such anticipated gross margins.

Selling, General and Administration Expenses

Selling, general and administration (“SG&A”) expenses include all costs, including rent costs, which are not directly associated with revenue-generating activities, as well as the non-cash expense for stock-based compensation. These include employee costs, corporate costs and facilities costs. Employee costs include administrative salaries and related employee benefits, travel, recruiting and training costs. Corporate costs include reorganization costs, legal, accounting and outside consulting fees. Facilities costs primarily include rent and communications costs.

SG&A expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2019 were $3.3 million, as compared to $2.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was mainly due to new sales initiatives taken by the company, including recruiting a new sales team.

SG&A expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2019 were $6.2 million, as compared to $5.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was mainly due to new sales initiatives taken by the company, including recruiting a new sales team.

Depreciation and Amortization

Depreciation and amortization expense amounted to $0.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, as compared to $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and $1.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to $1.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. We capitalized the customer lists acquired during various acquisitions, resulting in increased amortization costs. The customer lists from each acquisition are amortized over a period of 60 months.

Operating Income (Loss)

Our operating loss was $1.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, as compared to $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was due to due to new sales initiatives taken by the company, including recruiting a new sales team.

Our operating loss was $2.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, as compared to $2.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was due to due to new sales initiatives taken by the company, including recruiting a new sales team.

Interest Expense

Our interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was $0.16 million as compared to $0.18 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

Our interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $0.3 million as compared to $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our cash position was approximately $1.6 million as of June 30, 2019, as compared to $1.4 million as of December 31, 2018, an increase of approximately $0.2 million primarily due to the funds received from exercise of warrants. We received $2.1 million upon the exercise of warrants during the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Cash used for operating activities was $1.5 million during the six months ended June 30, 2019 and was primarily a result of net changes in working capital requirements. Cash used in investing activities was $0.2 million during the six months ended June 30, 2019. Cash provided by financing activities was $1.9 million during the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Liquidity Concerns

We incurred recurring losses as a result of costs and expenses related to our selling, general and administration activities and acquisition strategy. As of June 30, 2019, we had negative working capital of $3.4 million and cash of $1.6 million. Historically, our principal sources of cash have included bank borrowings and sales of securities. Our operating expenses are likely to continue to grow and, as a result, we will need to generate significant additional revenues to cover such expenses.

Our financial statements as of June 30, 2019 have been prepared under the assumption that we will continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to raise additional funding through the issuance of equity or debt securities, as well as to attain further operating efficiencies and, ultimately, to generate additional revenues. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. We can give no assurances that additional capital that we are able to obtain, if any, will be sufficient to meet our needs. The foregoing conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue our operations.

Available Credit Facility, Borrowings and Repayment of Debt

On January 23, 2019, certain subsidiaries of the Company, including Ameri100 Arizona LLC, Ameri100 Georgia, Inc., Ameri100 California, Inc. and Ameri and Partners, Inc., as borrowers (individually and collectively, “Borrower”) entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), for a credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) with North Mill Capital LLC, as lender (the “Lender”). The Loan Agreement has an initial term of two years from the closing date, with renewal thereafter if Lender, at its option, agrees in writing to extend the term for additional one year periods (the “Term”). The Loan Agreement is collateralized by a first-priority security interest in all of the assets of Borrower. In addition, (i) pursuant to a Corporate Guaranty entered into by the Company in favor of the Lender (the “Corporate Guaranty”), the Company has guaranteed the Borrower’s obligations under the Credit Facility and (ii) pursuant to a Security Agreement entered into between the Company and Lender (the “Security Agreement”), the Company granted a first-priority security interest in all of its assets to Lender.

The Borrowers received an initial advance on January 23, 2019 in an amount of approximately $2.85 million (the “Initial Advance”). Borrowings under the Credit Facility accrue interest at the prime rate (as designated by Wells Fargo Bank, National Association) plus one and three quarters percentage points (1.75%), but in no event shall the interest rate be less than seven and one-quarter percent (7.25%). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Loan Documents, the minimum monthly interest payable by Borrower on the Advances (as defined in the Loan Agreement) in any month shall be calculated based on an average Daily Balance (as defined in the Loan Agreement) of Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000) for such month.  For the first year of the Term, Borrower shall pay to Lender a facility fee equal to $50,000, due in equal monthly installments, with additional facility fees due to Lender in the event borrowings exceed certain thresholds and with additional facility fees due and payable in later years or upon later milestones. In addition, Borrower shall pay to Lender a monthly fee (the “Servicing Fee”) in an amount equal to one-eighth percent (.125%) of the average Daily Balance (as defined in the Loan Agreement) during each month on or before the first day of each calendar month during the Term.

The Company used approximately $2.75 million of the Initial Advance to repay all of its outstanding obligations under the Sterling National bank Credit Facility. Upon payment, the Company’s obligations under the Sterling National Bank Credit Facility were terminated. As of June 30, 2019, the principal balance and accrued interest under the Credit Facility amounted to $4 million.

Borrower also agreed to certain negative covenants in the Loan Agreement, including that they will not, without the prior written consent of Lender, enter into any extraordinary transactions, dispose of assets, merge, acquire, or consolidate with or into any other business organization or restructure.

If an Event of Default (as defined in the Loan Agreement) occurs, Lender may, among other things, (i) declare all obligations immediately due and payable in full; (ii) cease advancing money or extending credit to or for the benefit of Borrower; and/or (iii) terminate the Loan Agreement as to any future liability or obligation of Lender, without affecting Lender's right to repayment of all obligations and Lender’s security interests.

On March 7, 2017, we completed the sale and issuance of 8% Convertible Unsecured Promissory Notes (the “2017 Notes”) for aggregate proceeds to us of $1.25 million from four accredited investors, including one of the Company’s then-directors, Dhruwa N. Rai, and David Luci, who became a director of the Company in February 2018. The 2017 Notes were issued pursuant to Securities Purchase Agreements between the Company and each investor. The 2017 Notes bear interest at 8% per annum until maturity in March 2020, with interest being paid annually on the first, second and third anniversaries of the issuance of the 2017 Notes beginning in March 2018. From and after an event of default and for so long as the event of default is continuing, the 2017 Notes will bear default interest at the rate of 10% per annum. The 2017 Notes can be prepaid by us at any time without penalty. As of June 30, 2019, all interest payments due on the 2017 Notes have been paid in full.

During this first quarter of 2019 the company repaid $0.25 million towards 2017 notes.

The 2017 Notes are convertible into shares of our common stock at a conversion price equal to $2.80. The holders of the 2017 Notes have the right, at their option, at any time and from time to time to convert, in part or in whole, the outstanding principal amount and all accrued and unpaid interest under the 2017 Notes into shares of the Company’s common stock at the conversion price.

The 2017 Notes rank junior to our secured credit facility with Sterling National Bank. The 2017 Notes also include certain negative covenants including, without the investors’ approval, restrictions on dividends and other restricted payments and reclassification of its stock.

Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable for the period ended June 30, 2019 were $8.5 million as compared to $7.9 million as on December 31, 2018.

Accounts Payable

Accounts payable for the period ended June 30, 2019 were $4.9 million as compared to $4.4 million as on December 31, 2018.

Accrued Expense

Accrued expenses for the period ended June 30, 2019 were $1.8 million as compared to $1.7 million as on December 31, 2018.

Operating Activities

Our largest source of operating cash flows is cash collections from our customers. Our primary uses of cash for operating activities are for personnel-related expenditures, leased facilities and taxes.

Off- Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Impact of Inflation

We do not believe that inflation had a significant impact on our results of operations for the periods presented. On an ongoing basis, we attempt to minimize any effects of inflation on our operating results by controlling operating costs and, whenever possible, seeking to ensure that billing rates reflect increases in costs due to inflation.

For all significant foreign operations, the functional currency is the local currency. Assets and liabilities of these operations are translated at the exchange rate in effect at each period end. Statements of Operations accounts are translated at the exchange rate prevailing as of the date of the transaction. The gains or losses resulting from such translation are reported under accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) as a separate component of equity. Realized gains and losses from foreign currency transactions are included in other income, net for the periods presented.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

See Note 2 to our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for additional information.

Critical Accounting Policies

Revenue Recognition. We recognize revenue in accordance with the Accounting Standard Codification 606 “Revenue Recognition.” Revenue is recognized when all of the following criteria are met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (2) delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, (3) the seller’s price to buyer is fixed and determinable, and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. We recognize revenue from information technology services as the services are provided. Service revenues are recognized based on contracted hourly rates, as services are rendered or upon completion of specified contracted services and acceptance by the customer.
 
Stock-Based Compensation. Stock-based compensation expense for awards of equity instruments to employees and non-employee directors is determined based on the grant-date fair value of those awards. We recognize these compensation costs net of an estimated forfeiture rate over the requisite service period of the award. Forfeitures are estimated on the date of grant and revised if actual or expected forfeiture activity differs materially from original estimates.

Warrant Liability

The Company accounts for the warrants issued in connection with the July 25, 2018 Initial Securities Purchase Agreement in accordance with the guidance on Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Characteristics of both Liabilities and Equity, which provides that the Company classifies the warrant instrument as a liability at its fair value and adjusts the instrument to fair value at each reporting period. This liability is subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date until exercised, and any change in fair value is recognized in the Company’s statement of operations. The fair value of warrants issued by the Company in connection with private placements of securities has been estimated using the warrants quoted market price.

Impairment. Long-lived assets, which include property, plant and equipment, and certain other assets to be held and used by us, are reviewed when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable based on estimated future cash flows. If this assessment indicates that the carrying values will not be recoverable, as determined based on undiscounted cash flows over the remaining useful lives, an impairment loss is recognized based on the fair value of the asset.

Income Taxes. We provide for income taxes utilizing the asset and liability method of accounting. Under this method, deferred income taxes are recorded to reflect the tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts at each balance sheet date, based on enacted tax laws and statutory tax rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. If it is determined that it is more likely than not that future tax benefits associated with a deferred income tax asset will not be realized, a valuation allowance is provided. The effect on deferred income tax assets and liabilities of a change in the tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Tax benefits earned on employee stock awards in excess of recorded stock-based compensation expense are credited to additional paid-in capital. Our provision for income taxes also includes the impact of provisions established for uncertain income tax positions, as well as the related interest.

Accounts Receivable. We extend credit to clients based upon management’s assessment of their credit-worthiness on an unsecured basis. We provide an allowance for uncollectible accounts based on historical experience and management evaluation of trend analysis. We include any balances that are determined to be uncollectible in allowance for doubtful accounts.

Business Combination. We account for business combinations using the acquisition method, which requires the identification of the acquirer, the determination of the acquisition date and the allocation of the purchase price paid by the acquirer to the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired, the liabilities assumed, including any contingent consideration and any non-controlling interest in the acquiree at their acquisition date fair values. Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired, including the amount assigned to identifiable intangible assets. Identifiable intangible assets with finite lives are amortized over their useful lives. Acquisition-related costs are expensed in the periods in which the costs are incurred. The results of operations of acquired businesses are included in our consolidated financial statements from the acquisition date.

Goodwill and Purchased Intangibles. We evaluate goodwill and purchased intangible assets for impairment at least annually, or as circumstances warrant. Goodwill is evaluated at the reporting unit level by comparing the fair value of the reporting unit with its carrying amount. For purchased intangible assets, if our annual qualitative assessment indicates possible impairment, we test the assets for impairment by comparing the fair value of such assets to their carrying value. In determining the fair value, we utilize various estimates and assumptions, including discount rates and projections of future cash flows. If an impairment is indicated, a write down to the implied fair value of goodwill or fair value of intangible asset is recorded.

Valuation of Contingent Earn-out Consideration. Acquisitions may include contingent consideration payments based on the achievement of certain future financial performance measures of the acquired company. Contingent consideration is required to be recognized at fair value as of the acquisition date. We estimate the fair value of these liabilities based on financial projections of the acquired companies and estimated probabilities of achievement. We believe our estimates and assumptions are reasonable, however, there is significant judgment involved. We evaluate, on a routine, periodic basis, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration and changes in estimated fair value, subsequent to the initial fair value estimate at the time of the acquisition, will be reflected in income or expense in the consolidated statements of operations. Changes in the fair value of contingent consideration obligations may result from changes in discount periods and rates, changes in the timing and amount of revenue and/or earnings estimates and changes in probability assumptions with respect to the likelihood of achieving the various earn-out criteria. Any changes in the estimated fair value of contingent consideration may have a material impact on our operating results.

ITEM 4.
CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Management's Report on Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and our management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

As required by Rule 13a-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we have carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our Company's disclosure controls and procedures. This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our Company's management, including our Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Based upon that evaluation, our company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our company's disclosure controls and procedures are not yet effective as of the end of the period covered by this report as noted below in management's report on internal control over financial reporting. This is largely due to the fact that we are acquiring privately held companies as part of our growth strategy and our control procedures over all acquired subsidiaries will not be effective until such time as we are able to fully integrate the acquisition with our company and set processes and procedures for the acquired entities. We are working to improve and harmonize our financial reporting controls and procedures across all of our companies.  There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal controls over financial reporting.

Disclosure controls and procedures and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time period specified in the SEC's rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is accumulated and communicated to management including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent all error or fraud. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Due to the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected.

Management's Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Our management has assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2019, based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Our internal control over financial reporting includes maintaining records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect our transactions and dispositions of our assets; providing reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary for preparation of our financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles; providing reasonable assurance that receipts and expenditures are made in accordance with authorizations of management and our directors; and providing reasonable assurance that unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements would be prevented or detected on a timely basis. As a result of this assessment, our management concluded that, as of June 30, 2019, our internal control over financial reporting was not yet effective in providing reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.  This is largely due to the fact that we are acquiring privately held companies as part of our growth strategy and our control procedures over all acquired subsidiaries will not be effective until such time as we are able to fully integrate the acquisition with our company and set processes and procedures for the acquired entities.  We are working to improve and harmonize our financial reporting controls and procedures across all of our companies.

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q does not include an attestation report of our independent auditors regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report was not subject to attestation by our independent auditors pursuant to temporary rules of the SEC that permit our company to provide only management's report in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Inherent Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls

Internal control over financial reporting has inherent limitations which include but is not limited to the use of independent professionals for advice and guidance, interpretation of existing and/or changing rules and principles, segregation of management duties, scale of organization and personnel factors. Internal control over financial reporting is a process, which involves human diligence and compliance and is subject to lapses in judgment and breakdowns resulting from human failures. Internal control over financial reporting also can be circumvented by collusion or improper management override. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements on a timely basis, however these inherent limitations are known features of the financial reporting process and it is possible to design into the process safeguards to reduce, though not eliminate, this risk. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There have been no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation that occurred during the first quarter ended in 2019 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1.
LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

On May 1, 2018, MACT Holdings LLC, one of the former members of our subsidiary, Ameri Arizona, filed suit against us in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York seeking damages in an amount equal to such former member’s portion of accrued but unpaid earn-out payments of approximately $236,950 in respect of the 2017 earn-out period, plus attorneys’ fees and expenses. All such amounts had been paid as of August 3, 2018. Such former member also asserted that he had elected to receive cash instead of stock consideration of 560,000 shares of common stock issued to him on July 30, 2018, and the Company has entered into a settlement agreement, as of February 4, 2019, in which the Company paid an amount of $200,000 to such member in four equal monthly installments starting from February 2019 and ending in May 2019, which settled such dispute in its entirety.

Other than the above, we are not currently a party to any pending legal proceeding, nor is our property the subject of a pending legal proceeding, that is not in the ordinary course of business or otherwise material to the financial condition of our business.
