CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

 

This report includes forward-looking statements that relate to future events or our future financial performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Words such as, but not limited to, “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “targets,” “likely,” “aim,” “will,” “would,” “could,” and similar expressions or phrases identify forward-looking statements. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and future events and financial trends that we believe may affect our financial condition, results of operation, business strategy and financial needs. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements about risks associated with:

 

  our history of losses, our declining gross profit margins, our ability to raise additional capital and continue as a going concern;
  our ability to fully develop the Bright Mountain Media Ad Exchange Network and services platform;
  the continued appeal of internet advertising;
  our ability to manage and expand our relationships with publishers;
  our dependence on revenues from a limited number of customers;
  the impact of seasonal fluctuations on our revenues;
  acquisitions of new businesses and our ability to integrate those businesses into our operations;
  online security breaches;
  failure to effectively promote our brand and attract advertisers;
  our ability to protect our content;
  our ability to protect our intellectual property rights;
  the success of our technology development efforts;
  additional competition resulting from our business expansion strategy;
  our dependence on third party service providers;
  our ability to detect advertising fraud;
  liability related to content which appears on our websites;
  regulatory risks and compliance with privacy laws;
  dependence on executive officers and certain key employees and consultants;
  our ability to hire qualified personnel;
  possible problems with our network infrastructure;
  ongoing material weaknesses in our disclosure controls and internal control over financial reporting;
  the impact on available working capital resulting from the payment of cash dividends to our affiliates;
  dilution to existing shareholders upon the conversion of outstanding preferred stock and convertible notes and/or the exercise of outstanding options and warrants, including warrants with cashless exercise rights;
  the illiquid nature of our common stock;
  risks associated with securities litigation;
  provisions of our charter and Florida law which may have anti-takeover effects; and
  the impact of diversion of management’s time as we pursue the litigation against the former owners of one of the entities we acquired.

 

Most of these factors are difficult to predict accurately and are generally beyond our control. You should consider the areas of risk described in connection with any forward-looking statements that may be made herein. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements and readers should carefully review this report, including the Part II, Item 2, our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 12, 2019 and our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission in their entirety. Except for our ongoing obligations to disclose material information under the Federal securities laws, we undertake no obligation to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements, to report events or to report the occurrence of unanticipated events. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this report, and you should not rely on these statements without also considering the risks and uncertainties associated with these statements and our business.

NOTE 1 – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES.

 

Organization and Nature of Operations

 

Bright Mountain Media, Inc. is a Florida corporation formed on May 20, 2010. Its wholly owned subsidiaries, Bright Mountain LLC, and The Bright Insurance Agency, LLC, were formed as Florida limited liability companies in May 2011. Its wholly owned subsidiary, Bright Watches, LLC was formed as a Florida limited liability company in December 2015, and its wholly owned subsidiary Daily Engage Media Group, LLC (“DEM”) was formed as a New Jersey limited liability company in February 2015. In August 2019 Bright Mountain Israel Acquisition, in Israeli company was formed and acquired the wholly owned subsidiary Slutzky & Winshman Ltd. (“S&W”), see Note 4. When used herein, the terms “BMTM, the “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our” or “Bright Mountain” refers to Bright Mountain Media, Inc. and its subsidiaries.

 

Discontinued Operations

 

Effective December 31, 2018 the Company discontinued the E-Commerce operations, the Products segment, as of December 31, 2018 per the determination of Management and the Board of Directors. Accordingly, the Company determined that the assets and liabilities of this reportable segment met the discontinued operations criteria in Accounting Standards Codification 205-20-45 and were classified as discontinued operations at December 31, 2018. See Discontinued Operations Note 5.

 

Continuing Operations

 

We are a digital media holding company for online assets targeting and servicing the military and public safety markets and as such we delivered impressions, which include both our targeted demographic and the larger general demographic from our ad network. Our owned websites are dedicated to providing “those that keep us safe” places to go online where they can do everything from stay current on news and events affecting them, look for jobs, share information, and communicate with the public. We own 19 websites and manage five additional websites, for a total of 24 websites, which are customized to provide our niche users, including active, reserve and retired military, law enforcement, first responders and other public safety employees with information, news and entertainment across various platforms that has proven to be of interest and engaging to them.

 

During the past several years the Company has evolved to place its emphasis on not only providing quality content on our websites to drive traffic increases, but to increase the advertising revenue we generate from companies and brands looking to reach our audiences. Our ad network connects general use advertisers with approximately 200 digital publications worldwide. Bright Mountain’s websites feature timely, proprietary and aggregated content covering current events and a variety of additional subjects that are targeted to the specific, primarily young male, demographics of the individual website. Our business strategy requires us to continue to provide this quality content to our niche markets as we grow our business, operations and revenues. The Company’s focus is to launch its full-scale Ad Network Business platform, the Bright Mountain Media Ad Network Business.

 

On September 19, 2017, under the terms of an Amended and Restated Membership Interest Purchase Agreement with DEM, and its members, the Company acquired 100% of the membership interests of DEM. Launched in 2015, DEM is an ad network that connects advertisers with approximately 200 digital publications worldwide. On October 1, 2019, the Company rebranded the DEM operations as Bright Mountain, LLC

 

On August 15, 2019, under the terms of the Share Exchange Agreement and Plan of Merger with S&W and its members, the Company acquired 100% of the membership interests of S&W. Launched in 2015. S&W provided digital performance-based marketing services to customers which include primarily advertisers and advertising agencies that promote or sell products and/or services to consumers through digital media.

 

NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company sustained a net loss from continuing operations of $(3,276,650), a loss of $(174,021) from discontinued operations and used net cash in operating activities of $(1,502,123) for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The Company had an accumulated deficit of $(20,493,637) at September 30, 2019. These factors raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period. The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate revenues, control its expenses and its ability to continue obtaining investment capital and loans from related parties and outside investors to sustain its current level of operations.

 

Management continues raising capital through private placements and is exploring additional avenues for future fund-raising through both public and private sources. The Company is not currently involved in any binding agreements to raise public or private capital.

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES.

 

Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in the condensed consolidated financial statements. The accompanying unaudited financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) applicable to interim financial information and the requirements of Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X of the SEC. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, such condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) necessary for the fair presentation of the condensed consolidated financial position and the condensed consolidated results of operations. The condensed consolidated results of operations for periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. The condensed consolidated balance sheet information as of December 31, 2018 was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, as filed with the SEC on April 12, 2019. The interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with that report.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)” (“Topic 606”) using the “modified retrospective” method, meaning the standard is applied only to the most current period presented in the financial statements. Furthermore, we elected to apply the standard only to those contracts which were not completed as of the date of the adoption. Results for reporting periods beginning on the date of adoption are presented under Topic 606, while prior period amounts have not been adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with accounting standards in effect for those periods. Following the adoption of Topic 606, the Company will continue to recognize revenue at a point-in-time when control of services is transferred to the customer. This is consistent with the Company’s previous revenue recognition accounting policy.

 

To determine revenue recognition for arrangements that the Company determines are within the scope of Topic 606, the Company performs the following five steps: (i) identify the contract(s) with a customer; (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) determine the transaction price; (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the Company satisfies a performance obligation. The Company only applies the five-step model to contracts when it is probable that Company will collect the consideration it is entitled to in exchange for the advertising services it transfers to the customer. At contract inception, once the contract is determined to be within the scope of Topic 606, the Company assesses the advertising services promised within each contract and determines those that are performance obligations and assesses whether each promised advertising service is distinct. The Company then recognizes as revenue the amount of the transaction price that is allocated to the respective performance obligation based on relative fair values, when (or as) the performance obligation is satisfied.

 

The Company recognizes revenue from its own advertising platform, ad network partners and websites (“Ad Network”) through its publishing advertiser impressions and pay-for-click services. the Company’s owned and operated sites, our ad network, or platforms. Invalid traffic on the Ad Network may impact the amount collected and adjusted by our Ad Network.

 

The Company has one revenue stream generated directly from publishing advertisements, whether on the Company’s owned and operated sites, our ad network, or platforms. The revenue is earned when the users click on the published website advertisements. Specific revenue recognition criteria for the advertising revenue stream is as follows:

 

  Advertising revenues are generated by users “clicking” on website advertisements utilizing several ad network partners.
  Revenues are recognized net of adjustments based on the traffic generated and is billed monthly. The Company subsequently settles these transactions with publishers at which time adjustments for invalid traffic may impact the amount collected.

Leases

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)”, which sets out the principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases for both lessees and lessors. On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted the new lease standard using the optional transition method under which comparative financial information has not been restated and will continue to apply the provisions of the previous lease standard in its annual disclosures for the comparative periods. In addition, the new lease standard provides a number of optional practical expedients in transition. The Company elected the package of practical expedients. As such, the Company did not have to reassess whether expired or existing contracts are or contain a lease and did not have to reassess the lease classifications or reassess the initial direct costs associated with expired or existing leases.

 

The new lease standard also provides practical expedients for an entity’s ongoing accounting. The Company elected the short-term lease recognition exemption under which the Company will not recognize right of use (“ROU”) assets or lease liabilities, and this includes not recognizing ROU assets or lease liabilities for existing short-term leases. The Company elected the practical expedient to not separate lease and non-lease components for certain classes of assets (office building).

 

The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception. Operating lease ROU assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the remaining lease terms as of January 1, 2019. Since the Company’s lease agreements does not provide an implicit rate, the Company estimated an incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at January 1, 2019 in determining the present value of lease payments. Operating lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term, subject to any changes in the lease or expectations regarding the terms. Variable lease costs such as operating costs and property taxes are expensed as incurred.

 

On January 1, 2019, the Company recognized a ROU asset and a lease liability of approximately $588,000, of which $343,000 is associated with the S&W subsidiary on the consolidated balance sheet.

 

Use of Estimates

 

Our consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with US GAAP. These accounting principles require management to make certain estimates, judgments, and assumptions. We believe that the estimates, judgments, and assumptions upon which we rely are reasonable based upon information available to us at the time that these estimates, judgments, and assumptions are made. These estimates, judgments, and assumptions can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of our consolidated financial statements as well as reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the periods presented. Our consolidated financial statements would be affected to the extent there are material differences between these estimates and actual results. In many cases, the accounting treatment of a particular transaction is specifically dictated by US GAAP and does not require management’s judgment in its application. There are also areas in which management’s judgment in selecting any available alternative would not produce a materially different result. Significant estimates included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements include revenue recognition, the fair value of acquired assets for purchase price allocation in business combinations, valuation of intangible assets, estimates of amortization period for intangible assets, estimates of depreciation period for fixed assets and the valuation of equity-based transactions, and the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measurements

 

FASB ASC 820 “Fair Value Measurement and Disclosures: (“ASU 820”) defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. A financial instrument’s level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input significant to the fair value measurement.

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued).

 

The Company measures its financial assets and liabilities in accordance with GAAP. For certain of our financial instruments, including cash, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and the short-term portion of long-term debt, the carrying amounts approximate fair value due to their short maturities. We adopted accounting guidance for fair values measurements and disclosures (ASC 820). The guidance utilizes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The following is a brief description of those three levels:

 

  Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
  Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.
  Level 3: Unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore developed using estimates and assumptions developed by us, which reflect those that a market participant would use.

 

Financial instruments recognized in the consolidated balance sheets consist of cash, accounts receivable, prepaid expenses and other current assets, note receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses and premium finance loan payable. The Company believes that the carrying value of its current financial instruments approximates their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments. The carrying value of long-term debt to related parties and long-term debt to others approximates the current borrowing rate for similar debt instruments.

 

The following are the major categories of liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3):

 

Fair Value measurement using Level 3

 

Balance at December 31, 2018  $309,844 
Long term debt additions during 2019   - 
Principal reductions/payments during 2019   (64,681)
Adjustment to fair value   - 
Balance at September 30, 2019  $245,163 

 

Off balance sheet arrangements

 

Notes Payable and related potential liabilities are excluded from the balance sheet when there are significant uncertainties associated with the likelihood that the liabilities will be paid in full or until such time that the amount of the liability can be reasonably determined or estimated.

 

Due to uncertainties associated with certain Notes Payable resulting from the acquisition of S&W, see Note 4, the Company has not included the value of those Notes Payable within the purchase price and/or related assets acquired in the acquisition. These off-balance sheet arrangements are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are recorded at fair value on the date revenue is recognized. The Company provides allowances for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability of its customers to repay their obligation. If the financial condition of the Company’s customers were to deteriorate, resulting in an impairment of their ability to repay, additional allowances may be required. The Company provides for potential uncollectible accounts receivable based on specific customer identification and historical collection experience adjusted for existing market conditions. If market conditions decline, actual collection experience may not meet expectations and may result in decreased cash flows and increased bad debt expense.

 

The policy for determining past due status is based on the contractual payment terms of each customer, which are generally net 60 or net 90 days. Once collection efforts by the Company and its collection agency are exhausted, the determination for charging off uncollectible receivables is made.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment is recorded at cost. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method based on the estimated useful lives of the related assets of seven years for office furniture and equipment, and five years for computer equipment. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the lesser of the lease term or the useful life of the improvements.

 

Website Development Costs

 

The Company accounts for its website development costs in accordance with ASC 350-50, “Website Development Costs”. These costs, if any, are included in intangible assets in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued).

 

ASC 350-50 requires the expensing of all costs of the preliminary project stage and the training and application maintenance stage and the capitalization of all internal or external direct costs incurred during the application and infrastructure development stage. Upgrades or enhancements that add functionality are capitalized while other costs during the operating stage are expensed as incurred. The Company amortizes the capitalized website development costs over an estimated life of five years.

 

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 $0 and $8,000, respectively, was capitalized for the purchase of a Facebook page. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 all website costs were expensed.

 

Amortization and Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

Amortization and impairment of long-lived assets are non-cash expenses relating primarily to website acquisitions. The Company accounts for long-lived assets in accordance with the provisions of ASC 360, “Property, Plant and Equipment”. This requires that long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Website acquisition costs are amortized over five years. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to future undiscounted net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If such assets are impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell.

 

While it is likely that we will have significant amortization expense as we continue to acquire websites, we believe that intangible assets represent costs incurred by the acquired website to build value prior to acquisition and the related amortization and impairment charges of assets, if applicable, are not ongoing costs of doing business.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock-based instruments issued to employees for services in accordance with ASC Topic 718. ASC Topic 718 requires companies to recognize in the statement of operations the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity-based compensation issued to employees. The value of the portion of an employee award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense over the requisite service periods using the straight-line attribution method. The Company accounts for non-employee share-based awards in accordance with the measurement and recognition criteria of ASC Topic 505-50, “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees”. The Company estimates the fair value of stock options by using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. Non-cash stock-based stock option compensation is expensed over the requisite service period and are included in selling, general and administrative expenses on the accompanying statement of operations. For the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, non-cash stock-based stock option compensation expense was $15,963 and $5,753, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, non-cash stock-based stock option compensation expense was $29,074 and $19,961, respectively

 

Advertising, Marketing and Promotion Costs

 

Advertising, marketing and promotion expenses are expensed as incurred and are included in selling, general and administrative expenses on the accompanying statement of operations. For the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, advertising, marketing and promotion expense was $110,342 and $1,761, respectively for continuing operations and $0 and $66,215 for discontinued operations, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, advertising, marketing and promotion expense was $116,342 and $24,546, respectively for continuing operations and $6,888 and $202,102 for discontinued operations, respectively.

 

Foreign currency translation

 

Assets and liabilities of the Company’s Israeli subsidiary are translated from Israeli shekels to United States dollars at exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date.  Income and expenses are translated at the exchange rates for the weighted average rates for the period. The translation adjustments for the reporting period will be included in our statements of comprehensive income.  Based on the timing of the acquisition of the Israeli subsidiary, see Note 4, the impact of the currency exchange is immaterial for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019.

 

Income Taxes

 

We use the asset and liability method to account for income taxes. Under this method, deferred income taxes are determined based on the differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their reported amounts in the consolidated financial statements which will result in taxable or deductible amounts in future years and are measured using the currently enacted tax rates and laws in the period those differences are expected to reverse. A valuation allowance is provided to reduce net deferred tax assets to the amount that, based on available evidence, is more likely than not to be realized.

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued).

 

The Company follows the provisions of ASC 740-10, “Income Taxes – Overall”. When tax returns are filed, it is highly certain that some positions taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities, while others are subject to uncertainty about the merits of the position taken or the amount of the position that would be ultimately sustained. In accordance with the guidance of ASC 740-10, the benefit of a tax position is recognized in the financial statements in the period during which, based on all available evidence, management believes it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including the resolution of appeals or litigation processes, if any. Tax positions taken are not offset or aggregated with other positions. Tax positions that meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold are measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that is more than 50 percent likely of being realized upon settlement with the applicable taxing authority. The portion of the benefits associated with tax positions taken that exceeds the amount measured as described above should be reflected as a liability for unrecognized tax benefits in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets along with any associated interest and penalties that would be payable to the taxing authorities upon examination. Interest and penalties associated with unrecognized tax expenses are recognized as tax expenses in the Statement of Operations.

 

As of September 30, 2019, tax years 2018, 2017, and 2016 remain open for Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) audit. The Company has received no notice of audit or any notifications from the IRS for any of the open tax years.

 

Concentrations

 

The Company generates revenues from through Ad Exchange Networks and through our Owned and Operated Ad Exchange Network. There are two large customers which combined account for approximately 16.7% and 27.7% of the Ad Exchange Network Revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively. None of the customers accounted for Accounts Receivable in excess of 10% at September 30, 2019.

 

Credit Risk

 

The Company minimizes the concentration of credit risk associated with its cash by maintaining its cash with high quality federally insured financial institutions. However, cash balances in excess of the FDIC insured limit of $250,000 are at risk. At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company had approximately $0 and $706,000, respectively, in cash balances above the FDIC insured limit. The Company performs ongoing evaluations of its trade accounts receivable customers and generally does not require collateral.

 

Concentration of Funding

 

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 a large portion of the Company’s funding was provided through the sale of shares of the Company’s common stock with related warrants.

 

Basic and Diluted Net Earnings (Loss) Per Common Share

 

In accordance with ASC 260-10, “Earnings Per Share”, basic net earnings (loss) per common share is computed by dividing the net earnings (loss) for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share are computed using the weighted average number of common and dilutive common stock equivalent shares outstanding during the period. As of September 30, 2019, and 2018 there were 1,897,000 and 2,027,000 common stock equivalent shares outstanding as stock options, respectively; 22,618,240 and 10,100,000 common stock equivalent shares outstanding from warrants to purchase common shares, respectively, 6,844,017 and 2,412,500 common stock equivalents from the conversion of preferred stock, respectively; and 0 and 4,300,000 common stock equivalents from the conversion of notes payable, respectively. Equivalent shares were not utilized as the effect is anti-dilutive.

 

Segment Information

 

The Company currently operates in one reporting segment. This segment is focused on producing advertising revenue generated by users “clicking” on website advertisements utilizing several ad network partners and direct advertisers.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13 “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses” which replaces the incurred loss model with a current expected credit loss (“CECL”) model. The CECL model applies to financial assets subject to credit losses and measured at amortized cost and certain off-balance sheet exposures. Under current U.S. GAAP, an entity reflects credit losses on financial assets measured on an amortized cost basis only when losses are probable and have been incurred, generally considering only past events and current conditions in making these determinations. ASU 2016-13 prospectively replaces this approach with a forward-looking methodology that reflects the expected credit losses over the lives of financial assets, starting when such assets are first acquired. Under the revised methodology, credit losses will be measured based on past events, current conditions and reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the collectability of financial assets.

 

ASU 2016-13 also revises the approach to recognizing credit losses for available-for-sale securities by replacing the direct write-down approach with the allowance approach and limiting the allowance to the amount at which the security’s fair value is less than the amortized cost. In addition, ASU 2016-13 provides that the initial allowance for credit losses on purchased credit impaired financial assets will be recorded as an increase to the purchase price, with subsequent changes to the allowance recorded as a credit loss expense. ASU 2016-13 also expands disclosure requirements regarding an entity’s assumptions, models and methods for estimating the allowance for credit losses. The amendments of this Update are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted as of January 1, 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of this new standard will have on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued 2017-04, “Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment”. The amendments in this ASU simplify the subsequent measurement of goodwill by eliminating Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test and eliminating the requirement for a reporting unit with a zero or negative carrying amount to perform a qualitative assessment. Instead, under this pronouncement, an entity would perform its annual, or interim, goodwill impairment test by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount and would recognize an impairment change for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value; however, the loss recognized is not to exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. In addition, income tax effects will be considered, if applicable. This ASU is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this ASU on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820), - Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement,” which makes a number of changes meant to add, modify or remove certain disclosure requirements associated with the movement amongst or hierarchy associated with Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 fair value measurements. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted upon issuance of the update. We do not expect the adoption of this guidance to have a material impact on our consolidated Financial Statements.

 

Reclassification

 

Certain reclassifications have been made to the September 30, 2018 consolidated Statement of Operations and Statement of Cashflows to conform to the September 30, 2019 presentation.

 

NOTE 4 – ACQUISITION.

 

On July 31, 2019, the Company executed a Share Exchange Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Slutzky & Winshman Ltd., an Israeli company (“S&W”) and the shareholders of S&W (the “Shareholders”). The merger closed on August 15, 2019, and we acquired all of the outstanding shares of S&W. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, we issued 12,130,799 shares valued at $19,409,281 to owners and employees of S&W, contingent consideration of $750,000 paid through the delivery of unsecured, interest free, one and two year promissory notes (the “Closing Notes”), and 223,841 restricted stock units held in escrow for future vested stock options valued at $185,722.

 

In accordance with ASC 805 “Business Combinations” the measurement period for the acquisition is for one year during which the Company may reevaluate the assets acquired, liabilities assumed and the goodwill resulting from the transaction as well as the change in amortization as a result of changes in the provisional amounts as if the accounting had been completed at the acquisition date.

 

The allocation of the purchase price to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on management’s estimate of fair values at the date of acquisition as follows:

 

   August 15, 2019 
Tangible assets acquired  $3,234,757

NOTE 5 – DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS.

 

Management, prior to December 31, 2018 with the appropriate level or authority, determined to exit, effective December 31, 2018, its Black Helmet business line as a result of, among other things, the change in our strategic direction to a focus solely in our advertising segment. Historically revenues from our product sales segment including revenues from two of our websites that operate as e-commerce platforms, included Bright Watches and Black Helmet, as well as Bright Mountain Watches’ retail location.

 

Management, prior to December 31, 2018, with the appropriate level of authority, determined to discontinue the operations of Bright Mountain Watches effective December 31, 2018. The decisions to exit all components of our product segment will result in these businesses being accounted for as discontinued operations. The Company has determined that the exit of the Bright Mountain Watches business requires the Company to liquidate the inventory and settle all obligations to wind down the business unit. The Company sold the remaining inventory during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Accordingly, the Company determined that the assets and liabilities of this reportable segment met the discontinued operations criteria in Accounting Standards Codification 205-20-45, as such the results have been classified as discontinued operations.

NOTE 11 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES (continued).

 

Legal

 

Effective July 18, 2018 we terminated the employment agreements with each of Messrs. Harry G. Pagoulatos and George G. Rezitis for cause. Messrs. Pagoulatos and Rezitis had been employed by us as chief operating officer and chief technology officer, respectively, of our DEM subsidiary since our acquisition of that company in September 2017. Mr. Todd Speyer, our Vice President, Digital and a member of our board of directors, has assumed operating responsibilities for DEM. While the malfeasance of Messrs. Harry G. Pagoulatos and George G. Rezitis giving rise to their for-cause termination adversely affected our results of operations for the second and third quarters, we do not expect that these terminations will result in any material, long-term change in the operations of DEM.

 

In July of 2018, Messrs. Pagoulatos and Rezitis, along with a third party who had been a minority owner in DEM prior to our acquisition of that company, filed a Complaint in the U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey (case number 2: l 8-cv-11357-ES-SCM) against our Company and our Chief Executive Officer, seeking compensatory and punitive damages and attorneys’ fees, among other items, and alleging, among other items, fraud and breach of contract. We vehemently deny all allegations in the complaint and believe them to be without merit. We filed a Motion to Dismiss this case for a multitude of reasons including, but not restricted to, failure to state a cause of action and jurisdictional and venue arguments as the acquisition and employment agreements provides that any dispute should be heard in either the state or local courts of Palm Beach County, Florida. This Motion to Dismiss has been pending a decision since October 2018. At the appropriate juncture, we also intend to serve a Rule 11 Motion for Sanctions based upon the fact that the Complaint contains frivolous arguments or arguments with no evidentiary support.

 

In connection with the DEM acquisition, the Company entered into three-year employment agreements with two former members of the entity. Under these agreements, the Company was obliged to pay base salaries of $65,000 and $70,000, respectively to the employees with an increase to $75,000 each in the second year of the agreement as well as bonuses to be paid at the discretion of the board of directors.

 

As discussed in Note 8, the principals of DEM failed to disclose an obligation at closing. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019 the Company reached a settlement with the collections lawyer to pay down the amount remaining in collections through equal monthly payments through February 1, 2020.

 

From time-to-time, we may be involved in litigation or be subject to claims arising out of our operations or content appearing on our websites in the normal course of business. Although the results of litigation and claims cannot be predicted with certainty, we currently believe that the final outcome of these ordinary course matters will not have a material adverse effect on our business. Regardless of the outcome, litigation can have an adverse impact on our company because of defense and settlement costs, diversion of management resources and other factors.

 

Other Commitments

 

On September 5, 2018 the Company entered into a Master Services Agreement with Kubient, Inc. pursuant to which it will provide its programmatic technology platform to us on a nonexclusive basis for the purpose of managing our programmatic business partners.

Under the terms of the agreement, Spartan Capital will provide consulting services to us related to potential mergers or acquisitions. As consideration for the M&A advisory service we paid Spartan Capital a fee of $500,000 on the effective date of the agreement.

Between January 2019 and September 2019, the Company sold an aggregate of 2,570,860 units of its securities to 20 accredited investors in two private placements exempt from registration under the Securities Act in reliance on exemptions provided by Section 4(a)(2) and Rule 506(b) of Regulation D resulting in gross proceeds to the Company of $1,285,430. A total of 1,270,000 units were sold under the first private placement dated February 14, 2019 at a purchase price of $0.50 per share resulting in gross proceeds of $635,000. Each unit was sold at a purchase price of $0.50, and consisted of one share of common stock and one five-year warrant to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $0.75 per share. On April 22, 2019 the Company amended the private placement to include a second warrant to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share. 970,500 units were sold at a purchase price of $0.50 per unit resulting in gross proceeds of $485,250. We used $1,008,225 of the proceeds to issue 6% promissory notes to Inform, Inc as a part of the potential acquisition. On July 15, 2019 these two offerings were terminated and replaced with a private placement offering units at a purchase price of $0.50 consisting of one share of common stock, one five-year warrant to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $0.75 per share, and a second warrant to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share. A total of 330,360 units were sold under the private placement dated July 15, 2019 units at a purchase price of $0.50 per share resulting in gross proceeds of $165,180. We used $148,662 of the proceeds to issue 6% promissory notes to Inform, Inc as a part of the potential acquisition.

The Company initially recorded the warrants as professional fees in the condensed consolidated statement of operations however management subsequently determined that based on the services specified in the agreement, the fees incurred from the warrant issuance were solely for the purpose of raising capital in connection with the private placement discussed above. As a result, the fees are considered an offering cost and should have been reflected as a component of shareholder’s equity for the period ended September 30, 2018.

 

On July 31, 2019, the Company executed a Share Exchange Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Slutzky & Winshman Ltd., an Israeli company (“S&W”) and the shareholders of S&W (the “Shareholders”).

Stock Option Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock option compensation issued to employees for services in accordance with ASC Topic 718, “Compensation – Stock Compensation”. ASC Topic 718 requires companies to recognize in the statement of operations the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity-based compensation issued to employees. The value of the portion of an employee award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense over the requisite service periods using the straight-line attribution method. The Company accounts for non-employee share-based awards in accordance with the measurement and recognition criteria of ASU No. 2018- 07, “Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting.”. The Company estimates the fair value of stock options by using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model.

 

Stock options issued to consultants and other non-employees as compensation for services provided to the Company are accounted for based on the fair value of the services provided or the estimated fair market value of the option, whichever is more reliably measurable in accordance with FASB ASC 505, Equity, and FASB ASC 718, including related amendments and interpretations. The related expense is recognized over the period the services are provided.

 

The Company recorded $15,963 and $5,753 of stock option expense for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 respectively. The Company recorded $29,074 and $19,961 of stock option expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 respectively. The stock option expense for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively has been recognized as a component of general and administrative expenses in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

 

As of September 30, 2019, there were total unrecognized compensation costs related to non-vested share-based compensation arrangements of $57,612 to be recognized through December 2020.

 

Included in the recognized and unrecognized compensation costs are 100,000 options issued to an employee during the three months ended September 30, 2019. The value of these options was calculated using the Black Scholes Option Pricing Model with the following inputs: Exercise price $1.75, Stock price $1.75, Term 6.25 years, Volatility 52.15%, Dividends 0.00%, and Risk free rate 1.99%.

Kip Speyer, an executive officer and member of our board of directors, purchased an aggregate of 400,000 shares of Series A-1 Preferred at a purchase price of $0.50 per share. A total of 2,000,000 shares were designated for the 10% Series A-1 Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series A-1 Preferred”). The Series A-1 Preferred has a stated value of $0.50 per share and ranks senior to all other classes of the Company’s securities, will be entitled to a 10% cash dividend payable monthly in arrears, and are convertible into shares of our common stock on a one for one basis at the option of the holder, subject to automatic conversion by us upon either the five year anniversary of the date of issuance or in the event of a change of control of our company as defined in the designations The Company used the proceeds from these sales for working capital.

 

On November 8, 2019, the Company and News Distribution Network, Inc., (“NDN”) a Delaware corporation, (formerly known as Inform Inc.) executed an Agreement and Plan of Merger. The consideration in the transaction is the forgiveness of the Notes Receivable of $1,156,887 and shares of the Company’s common stock not to exceed 22,000,000 shares in exchange for all of the outstanding shares of NDN.

Overview

 

Bright Mountain Media is a digital media holding company for online publications, advertising services and software primarily focused on serving large audience segments as well as brands trying to reach them. We do this by connecting advertisers and brands with consumers through a full suite of advertising services that incorporates an ad network, multiple real-time biding platforms and 24 websites (owned and managed) that provide content, services and products. Bright Mountain Media’s owned and managed websites primarily provide content and services to US military and veteran audiences, as well as first responders and their families. We have also recently begun expanding our footprint to provide advertising services to audiences and advertisers globally.

 

We generate revenue sales of advertising services which generate revenue from advertisements (ad impressions) placed on our owned and managed sites, as well as from advertisements we place on partner websites, for which we earn a share of the revenue. We also generate advertising services revenue from facilitating the real-time buying and selling of advertisements at scale between networks of buyers, often called DSPs (Demand Side Platforms) and sellers, often called SSPs (Supply Side Platforms).

 

 27 
 

 

When fully developed Bright Mountain’s full suite of advertising solutions will include:

 

  The ability for advertisers to login and purchase advertising space on a variety of digital publications;
     
  Leading targeting technology, allowing advertisers to pinpoint their marketing efforts to reach geo-targeted, specific demographics across desktop, tablet, and mobile devices;
     
  The ability to handle any ad format, including video, display, and native advertisements;
     
  Ad serving and self-service features for publishers and advertisers; and
     
  Server-to-server integration with other advertiser and publisher platforms for extremely quick transactions and ad deployments.

 

This Bright Mountain Media full services advertising solution will be a marketplace for publishers and advertisers where they will be able to login and choose from various features to maximize their earning potential. Advertisers will be able to set their budget and choose where their ads will be seen using our filters or by connection directly with publishers through our platform. Publishers will be able to select a variety of ad units for their video, mobile, display and native advertisements and have the ability to create their own unique ad formats.

 

As mentioned above, in addition to our niche market of US military and public safety sectors, we intend to broaden the scope of our partner publishers and publisher networks to include global audience segments across connected television, mobile devices, tablets and desktop computers.

 

Key initiatives

 

Our growth strategy is based upon:

 

  completing and launching the Bright Mountain Media advertising solutions marketplace;
     
  expanding our sales revenues through organic growth;
     
  continuing to pursue acquisition candidates that are strategic our business plan;
     
  evaluating expenses attributed to our non-strategic business lines; and
     
  continuing to automate our processes and reduce overhead where possible without impacting our customer experience

Total cost of revenue  $1,432,922   $117,175   $1,315,747    1,123%  $2,874,076   $810,744   $2,063,332    254%
Gross Profit  $680,354   $68,242   $612,112    897%  $1,041,250   $349,007   $692,243    198%
Gross profit margin as a percentage of advertising revenues   32.2%   36.8%             26.6%   30.1%          

 

Our advertising revenue for the third quarter of 2019 was 1,040% higher than the comparable period in 2018. $828,626 or 478% of the increase is attributable to organic growth with the remaining $1,099,233 due to the acquisition of S&W during the quarter. The organic growth is due to the increased activity with our existing customers and the acquisition of a significant key customer during the fourth quarter of 2018.

 

Our advertising revenue for the nine months of 2019 was 237% higher than the comparable period in 2018. $1,656,342 or 143% of the increase is attributable to organic growth with the remaining $1,099,233 due to the acquisition of S&W during the quarter. The organic growth is due to the increased activity with our existing customers and the acquisition of a significant key customer during the fourth quarter of 2018.

 

We incur costs of sales associated with the advertising revenue. These costs include revenue share payments to media providers and website publishers.

 

The gross profit margin decreased in the third quarter of 2019 due to increased platform fees.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

   For the Three Months Ended September 30,   For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 
   2019   2018   $ Change   % Change   2019   2018  

$ Change

   % Change 
                                 
Selling, general and administrative expense  $2,734,203   $802,423   $1,931,780    240.7%  $4,454,606   $2,703,615   $1,750,991   64.8%
Gross profit margin as a percentage of Selling, general and administrative expense   34.6%   36.8%             27.6%   30.1%          

 

The components of selling, general and administration expense increases are attributable to $1,205,000 of consulting fees to Spartan Capital in connection with the acquisition of S&W in the third quarter of 2019, along with increases in payroll expense based on the increase in personnel associated with continuing operations. $552,137 of the increase in both the three and nine month periods are attributable the operating activities of S&W, which are not reflected in the prior period expenses. The Company has also increased its expenses associated with legal and other professional associated with the S&W acquisition and the acquisition of NDN, which closed subsequent the end of the third quarter of 2019.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses are expected to increase as we execute our planned growth strategy of launching and operating the Bright Mountain Media ad exchange network which will include additional administrative support. Subject to the availability of additional working capital, the Company also intends to add administrative staff to its accounting department to improve controls over its accounting and reporting processes. As the Company expands the size of the accounting department, the use of consultants is expected to decrease.

Total other income (expense)

 

Total other income (expense) for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 of $134,590 and $(342,081), respectively, primarily reflects a $122,500 extinguishment of the publisher payments liability. Interest expense related party and non-related party debt declined during the first quarter of 2019 due to the November 2018 exchange of the related party notes payable for preferred stock and repayment of debt.

 

Discontinued Operations

 

The Company discontinued its E-commerce business in the fourth quarter of 2018. The loss on discontinued operations was $(174,021) and $(56,991) for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Revenues from discontinued operations significantly decreased during the period, from $897,536 in 2018 to $103,266 for the same period in 2019, Selling, general and administrative expenses related to these operations decreased from $275,886 in 2018 to $242,395 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

 

Non-GAAP financial measure

 

We report adjusted net (loss) to measure our overall results because we believe it better reflects our net results by excluding the impact of non-cash equity-based compensation. We use Adjusted EBITDA to measure our operations by excluding interest and certain additional non-cash expenses. These measures are one of the primary metrics by which we evaluate the performance of our business, on which our internal budgets are based. We believe the presentation of adjusted net (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA enhances our investors’ overall understanding of the financial performance of our business.

 

We believe that investors should have access to the same set of tools that we use in analyzing our results. This non-GAAP measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results.

 

We believe these measures are useful for analysts and investors as the measures allows a more meaningful year-to-year comparison of our performance. The items below are excluded from the Adjusted EBITDA measure because these items are non-cash in nature, and we believe that by excluding these items, Adjusted EBITDA corresponds more closely to the cash operating income/loss generated from our business. Adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations in that it does not consider the impact to our statement of operations of certain expenses.

 

Non-GAAP financial measure (continued)

 

The following is an unaudited reconciliation of net (loss) to adjusted net (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented:

 

   For the Three Months Ended

Liquidity and capital resources

 

Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate sufficient cash to satisfy its needs for cash. The following table summarized total current assets, total current liabilities and working capital (deficit) at September 30, 2019 as compared to December 31, 2018.

 

   September 30, 2019   December 31, 2018 
Total current assets  $6,061,803   $2,473,630 
Total current liabilities   6,948,674    1,591,681 
Working capital  $(886,871)  $881,949 

 

The increase in cash and increase in the working capital is a result of cash proceeds from the sale of equity securities in three private placements during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The increase in our current assets is mostly reflective of an increase in cash balances, notes receivable, and prepaid expenses offset by the decrease in current assets due to discontinued operations.

 

As we continue our efforts to grow our business, we expect that our monthly cash operating overhead will continue to increase as we add personnel, although at a lesser rate, and we are not able at this time to quantify the amount of this expected increase. In 2019 we implemented policies and procedures around cash collections to prevent the aging of accounts receivables that was experienced in 2018. Cash collection efforts have been successful, and we feel that we have appropriately reserved for uncollectible amounts at September 30, 2019.

 

We do not have any commitments for capital expenditures. During the fourth quarter of 2018 we loaned Kubient, Inc. $75,000 under the terms of a promissory note. Additionally, promissory notes payable in the aggregate amount of $165,163 are due to three members of DEM as partial consideration in our acquisition of that entity, which became due in September 2018, and has not been paid pending the settlement of, or conclusion of, the litigation described in Note 11 – Commitments and Contingencies.

 

Going concern and management’s liquidity plans

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company sustained a net loss of ($3,450,671) and used net cash in operating activities of $(1,502,123) for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The Company had an accumulated deficit of ($20,493,637) at September 30, 2019.

 

The report of our independent registered public accounting firm on our audited consolidated financial statements at December 31, 2018 and 2017 and for the years then ended contains an explanatory paragraph regarding substantial doubt of our ability to continue as a going concern based upon our net losses, cash used in operations and accumulated deficit. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. There are no assurances we will be successful in our efforts to generate revenues or report profitable operations or to continue as a going concern, in which event investors would lose their entire investment in our company.

 

Our ability to fully implement the Bright Mountain Media Ad Exchange Network and maximize the value of our assets are dependent upon our ability to raise additional capital sufficient for our short-term and long-term growth plans. Historically we have been dependent upon loans and equity purchases from Mr. W. Kip Speyer, an executive officer and member of our board of directors and sales of equity securities to accredited investors, to provide adequate funds to meet our working capital needs. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019 we raised $1,285,430 through the sale of our securities in two private placements. While we estimate that we need a minimum of $3 million in additional working capital to provide sufficient funds to pay our operating expenses and fund our development over the next 12 months, we believe that if we are successful the anticipated revenues from our advertising segment will have a significant impact on our revenues and results of operations in future periods. While we have engaged a placement agent to assist us in raising capital, the placement agent is acting on a best efforts basis and there are no assurances we will be successful in raising additional capital during the balance of 2019 and 2020 through the sale of our securities. Any delay in raising sufficient funds will delay the implementation of our business strategy and could adversely impact our ability to significantly increase our revenues in future periods. In addition, if we are unable to raise the necessary additional working capital, absent a significant increase in our revenues, most particularly from our advertising segment, of which there is no assurance, we will be unable to continue to grow our company and may be forced to reduce certain operating expenses to conserve our working capital.

Summary of cash flows

 

   September 30, 2019 
   2019   2018 
Net cash (used in) operating activities  $(1,502,123)  $(3,224,600)
Net cash (used in) provided by investing activities  $(492,389)  $887 
Net cash provided by financing activities  $1,545,728   $3,474,350 
Net (decrease) increase in cash and cash equivalents including cash and cash equivalents classified within assets related to discontinued operations  $(454,937)  $413,389 

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, we used cash primarily to fund our net loss of $3,450,671 for the period, decrease in prepaid items of $452,231 for the period, an increase in accounts receivable of $808,812, and $1,078,205 of accounts payable and accrued expenses of $1,070,498. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, we used cash primarily to fund our net loss of $2,753,680 for the period, as well as an increase in prepaid expenses of $688,101, offset by lower accounts payable of $543,891.

 

The decrease in net cash used in investing activities in 2019 is attributable to $1,156,887 of loans granted to NDN, offset by $603,744 of cash acquired in the acquisition of S&W, $77,500 of loan repayments from notes receivable, $16,036 paid for furniture and fixture purchases, and $8,000 paid for the acquisition in 2019 of a Facebook page.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2019 the Company raised $1,651,410 through the sale of equity securities in three private placement memorandums and $250,000 of preferred stock. During 2018 the Company raised $1,737,000, net for sale of common stock and $255,000 of preferred shares.

 

Critical accounting policies

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reported periods. The more critical accounting estimates include estimates related to revenue recognition and accounts receivable allowances. We also have other key accounting policies, which involve the use of estimates, judgments and assumptions that are significant to understanding our results, which are described in Note 1 to our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements appearing elsewhere in this report.

 

Recent accounting pronouncements

 

The recent accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by the FASB or other standards-setting bodies as described in Note 1 appearing earlier in this report that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the financial statements upon adoption.

 

All other newly issued accounting pronouncements, but not yet effective, have been deemed either immaterial or not applicable.

 

Off balance sheet arrangements

 

As of the date of this report, we have off balance sheet debt of $750,000 due to the previous shareholders of S&W. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the company acquired S&W for a combination of common stock and notes payable. Due to uncertainties associated with the Notes Payable resulting from the acquisition of S&W, see Note 4, the Company has not included the value of the Notes Payable within the purchase price and/or related assets acquired in the acquisition. These off-balance sheet arrangements are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors. The term “off-balance sheet arrangement” generally means any transaction, agreement or other contractual arrangement to which an entity unconsolidated with us is a party, under which we have any obligation arising under a guarantee contract, derivative instrument or variable interest or a retained or contingent interest in assets transferred to such entity or similar arrangement that serves as credit, liquidity or market risk support for such assets.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

Not applicable for a smaller reporting company.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures” as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognized that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of disclosure controls and procedures are met. Additionally, in designing disclosure controls and procedures, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures. The design of any disclosure controls and procedures also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.

 

 31 
 

 

Based on his evaluation as of the end of the period covered by this report, our Chief Executive Officer, who also serves as our principal financial and accounting officer, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective such that the information relating to our company, required to be disclosed in our Securities and Exchange Commission reports (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure as a result of continuing material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting as described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. A material weakness is a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, that results in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected.

 

We will continue to monitor our internal control over financial reporting on an ongoing basis and are committed to taking further action and implementing additional enhancements or improvements, as necessary and as funds allow. We do not, however, expect that the material weaknesses in our disclosure controls will be remediated until such time as we have added to our accounting and administrative staff allowing improved internal control over financial reporting.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting. There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during our last fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

 

None, except as previously disclosed.

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS.

 

We incorporate by reference the risk factors disclosed in Part I, Item 1A of our 2018 Form 10-K subject to the new or modified risk factors appearing below that should be read in conjunction with the risk factors disclosed in such Form 10-K, including those set forth below:

 

 32 
 

 

ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS.

 

One of the conditions precedent to the closing of the pending merger with Inform as described elsewhere in this report is that we raise at least $3 million from the sale of our securities, and lend 90% of that amount to Inform under the 6% promissory notes. Between January 28, 2019 and May 3, 2019, pursuant to the terms of a Confidential Term Sheet for Accredited Investors Only dated February 14, 2019, we sold an aggregate of 1,270,000 units of our securities to 15 accredited investors in a private placement exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), in reliance on exemptions provided by Section 4(a)(2) and Rule 506(b) of Regulation D of that act resulting in gross proceeds to us of $635,000. Each unit, which was sold at a purchase price of $0.50, consisted of one share of common stock and one five-year warrant to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $0.75 per share (the “Initial Inform Offering”). We did not pay any commissions or finder’s fees for these sales. We used $571,500 of the proceeds to lend to Inform and used the balance for general working capital. Thereafter, by amendment dated April 14, 2019 to the Initial Inform Offering, we amended the unit components of the Initial Inform Offering to include a second five-year common stock purchase warrant to purchase one share of our common stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share, and the offering price of the unit remained at $0.50 per unit (the “Amended Inform Offering”). Between May 1, 2019 and July 6, 2019 we sold we sold an aggregate of 1,051,500 units of our securities in the Amended Inform Offering to 19 accredited investors in a private placement exempt from registration under the Securities Act in reliance on exemptions provided by Section 4(a)(2) and Rule 506(b) of Regulation D of that act resulting in gross proceeds to us of $525,750. We did not pay any commissions or finder’s fees for these sales. We used $473,175 of these proceeds to lend to Inform and used the balance for general working capital.

 

As investors in the Initial Inform Offering were not entitled to the additional warrant included in the units purchased by the investors in the Amended Inform Offering, we offered the purchasers of units in the Initial Inform Offering the right to purchase (the “Inform Warrant Offering”) an additional five-year common stock purchase warrant exercisable at $1.00 per share (the “Series B-1 Warrant”) and, as consideration therefore, those investors agreed to extend the date by which we are obligated to file a resale registration statement covering the securities sold to those investors pursuant to the terms of the Initial Inform Offering from 120 days to 270 days from the final closing of the Current Inform Offering (as hereinafter defined). Between July 11, 2019 and July 31, 2019, the termination date of the Inform Warrant Offering, we issued 980,000 Series B-1 Warrants to 11 of the investors in the Initial Inform Offering pursuant to the terms and conditions of a Confidential Term Sheet for Offering of Series B-1 Warrants dated July 11, 2019. We did not receive any cash proceeds in this offering and did not pay any commissions or finder’s fees for these sales. Investors in the Initial Inform Offering who did not subscribe to the Inform Warrant Offering are not entitled to receive the additional Series B-1 Warrant.

 

Thereafter, between July16, 2019 and November 13, 2019, we sold an aggregate of 165,000 units of our securities at a purchase price of $0.50 per unit to 4 accredited investors in a private placement exempt from registration under the Securities Act in reliance on exemptions provided by Section 4(a)(2) and Rule 506(b) of Regulation D, with each unit consisting of one share of our common stock, one five-year common stock purchase warrant to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $0.75 per share and one five-year common stock warrant to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share (the “Current Inform Offering”). We received $82,500 in proceeds and we did not pay any commissions or finder’s fees for these sales. We used $74,250 of these proceeds to lend to Inform and used the balance for general working capital.

 

Between January 28, 2019 and November 13, 2019, we sold an aggregate of 750,000 units of our securities to three accredited investors in a private placement exempt from registration under the Securities Act in reliance on exemptions provided by Section 4(a)(2) and Rule 506(b) of Regulation D of that act resulting in gross proceeds to us of $300,000. Each unit, which was sold at a purchase price of $0.40, consisted of one share of common stock and one five-year warrant to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $0.65 per share. We did not pay any commissions or finder’s fees for these sales.

 

During the period from August 2, 2019 through November 13, 2019, Mr. W. Kip Speyer, an executive officer and member of our board of directors, purchased an aggregate of 500,000 shares of our newly created 10% Series A-1 Convertible Preferred Stock at a purchase price of $0.50 per share. Mr. Speyer is an accredited investor and the issuance and sales of these shares were exempt from registration under the Securities Act in reliance on exemptions provided by Sections 4(a)(2) and Rule 506(b) or Regulation D. We did not pay any commissions or finder’s fees. The Company used the proceeds of $250,000 from these sales for working capital.

ITEM 5. OTHER INFORMATION.

 

As disclosed in our Current Report on Form 8-K as filed with the SEC on August 7, 2019, on July 31, 2019, we entered into two agreements with Spartan Capital including:

 

  an Amended and Restated M&A Advisory Agreement (the “Amended M&A Agreement) which amended and restated the five year M&A Advisory Agreement with Spartan Capital which was effective September 28, 2018. Under the terms of the original agreement, Spartan Capital agreed to provide consulting services to us related to potential mergers or acquisitions, including candidates, valuations and transaction terms and structures. As compensation, we previously paid Spartan Capital a cash fee of $500,000. Under the terms of the Amended M&A Agreement, which will become effective following the date on we receive at least $1.5 million proceeds from a private placement of our securities, net of all commissions and expenses which may be payable to Spartan Capital (the “Financing Contingency”), the term of the agreement was extended to expire 60 months from the effective date of the Amended M&A Agreement and provides for the payment of an additional $250,000 cash compensation to Spartan Capital; and
     
  an amendment (the “Finder’s Agreement Amendment”) to the Finder’s Agreement with Spartan Capital which was effective on November 30, 2018, pursuant to which Spartan Capital was previously paid a non-refundable cash fee of $160,000. The Finder’s Agreement Amendment, which will become effective following the satisfaction of the Financing Contingency, provides for the following additional compensation to Spartan Capital: a cash fee of $190,000 and 650,000 shares of our common stock (the “Finder’s Shares”), other than the Finder’s Shares, with such shares to be valued at the volume weighted average price of the common stock on the principal exchange or market on which our common stock is traded for the 10 trading days preceding the closing.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the terms and conditions of the Amended M&A Agreement and the Finder’s Agreement Amendment are qualified in their entirety by reference to agreements which are incorporated herein by reference.
