General

The condensed consolidated balance sheet of Chase General Corporation (hereinafter referred to as Chase, we, our, and us) at June 30, 2018 has been taken from audited consolidated financial statements at that date and condensed. The condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2019 and for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2018 are unaudited and reflect all normal and recurring accruals and adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results and cash flows for the interim periods presented in this quarterly report. The condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto, together with management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations, contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2018. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2019 and cash flows for the nine months ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results for the entire fiscal year ending June 30, 2019. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary to fairly present financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the periods have been included.

 

No events have occurred subsequent to March 31, 2019, through the date of filing this form, that would require disclosure in this Form 10-Q or would be required to be recognized in the condensed consolidated financial statements as of or for the nine month period ended March 31, 2019.

 

Revenue Recognition

The majority of our revenue is derived by fulfilling customer orders for the purchase of our products, including 1) a candy bar marketed under the trade name “Cherry Mash” and 2) coconut, peanut, chocolate, and fudge confectioneries. The Company recognizes revenue at the point in time that control of the ordered product(s) is transferred to the customer, which is typically upon shipment to the customer. Shipping and handling costs incurred to ship product to the customer are recorded within cost of sales. Amounts billed and due from our customers are classified as accounts receivables on the balance sheet and require payment on a short-term basis. Generally, individual orders from customers are accounted for as a single performance obligation.

Revenue Recognition (Continued)

Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration we expect to receive in exchange for fulfilling product orders. Sales, value add, and other taxes we collect concurrent with revenue-producing activities are excluded from revenue. The amount of consideration the Company expects to receive and revenue the Company recognizes includes estimates of variable consideration, including costs for trade promotional programs, customer incentives, and allowances and discounts associated with aged or potentially unsaleable products. These estimates are based upon our analysis of the programs offered, historical trends, and expectations regarding customer and consumer participation, sales and payment trends and our experience with payment patterns associated with similar programs offered in the past. The Company reviews and updates these estimates regularly and the impact of any adjustments are recognized in the period the adjustments are identified. The adjustments recognized in the third quarter of the year ending June 30, 2019 resulting from updated estimates of revenue for prior year product sales were not significant.

 

The majority of the Company’s products are confectionery and confectionery-based and, therefore, exhibit similar economic characteristics, such that they are based on similar ingredients and are marketed and sold through the same channels to the same customers. The Company operates two divisions, Chase Candy Products and Seasonal Candy Products. Chase Candy Products involve production and sale of a candy bar marketed under the trade name “Cherry Mash”. The Seasonal Candy Products involve production and sale of coconut, peanut, chocolate, and fudge confectioneries. Both divisions share a common labor force and utilize the same basic equipment and raw materials. Management considers these two divisions as one reportable segment. The various divisions of revenue are as follows:

 

For the three months ended March 31,        
         
   2019   2018 
Sales - Chase Candy  $321,390   $372,664 
Sales - Seasonal Candy   5,654    5,662 
Sales  $327,044   $378,326 

 

For the nine months ended March 31,        
         
   2019   2018 
Sales - Chase Candy  $1,044,762   $1,136,093 
Sales - Seasonal Candy   1,154,431    1,222,898

Recently Adopted Pronouncements

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC 606), which replaces numerous requirements in U.S. GAAP, including industry-specific requirements, and provides companies with a single revenue recognition model for recognizing revenue from contracts with customers. On July 1, 2018, we adopted the requirements of ASC 606 and all the related amendments to contracts that have not been completed as of the initial adoption date using the modified retrospective method. Upon completing our implementation assessment of ASC 606, we concluded that no adjustment was required to the opening balance of retained earnings at the date of initial application. The comparative information has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for those periods.

 

The Company identified certain amounts included in accounts payable that are separately recorded as a current liability upon adoption of ASC 606. There was no impact to working capital as a result of these reclassifications. The cumulative effects of the changes made to our consolidated July 1, 2018 balance sheet for the adoption of the new revenue standard were as follows:

 

   Balance at   Adjustment   Balance at 
   June 30, 2018   Upon Adoption   July 1, 2018 
Balance Sheet               
Accounts Payable  $135,311   $(12,900)  $122,411 
Refund Liability Owed to Customers   -    12,900    12,900

Recently Adopted Pronouncements (Continued)

There is no change in the timing of revenue recognition upon adoption of ASC 606. The Company has identified certain amounts paid to customers which are currently recorded as selling expense. Under ASC 606, these amounts will be recorded as a reduction to revenue as the Company does not receive a distinct good or service in exchange for the payment. The total impact of adoption on our consolidated statement of operation and balance sheet was as follows:

NOTE 1SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Recently Issued Pronouncements

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). This ASU will require lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheet as lease liabilities with corresponding right-of-use (ROU) assets. Recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses will depend on classification as a finance or operating lease. We are currently in the process of evaluating our existing lease portfolio, including accumulating all of the necessary information required to properly account for the leases under the new standard. ASU 2016-02 is effective for us beginning July 1, 2019. The guidance originally required entities to apply ASU 2016-02 on a modified retrospective basis; however, the FASB has recently issued guidance that would allow adoption of this standard as of the effective date without restating prior periods. Management has begun the process of inventorying leases that this standard may apply to and the impact is not yet determined.

 

There have been no other newly issued or newly applicable accounting pronouncements that have, or are expected to have, a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities  $112,425   $157,620 
Net Cash Provided (Used) by Investing Activities  $-   $(2,276)
Net Cash Used by Financing Activities  $(15,777)  $(16,666)

 

Management has no material commitments for capital expenditures during the remainder of fiscal 2019. The $112,425 of cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended March 31, 2019 is fully detailed in the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows on page five. The $15,777 of cash used in financing activities for the nine months ended March 31, 2019 is the principal payments on vehicle loans. At March 31, 2019, the Company had $350,000 remaining on the line-of-credit, which could be utilized to help fund any working capital requirements.

 

Management believes that the projected cash flow from operations, combined with its existing cash balances, will be sufficient to meet its funding requirements for the foreseeable future.

 

Management believes that inflation will have only a minimal effect on future operations since such effects will be offset by sales price increases, which are not expected to have a significant effect upon demand.

Forward-Looking Information

 

This report, as well as our other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), contains forward-looking statements made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The words “believe,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” “project,” “intend,” “expect,” “plan,” “outlook,” “forecast,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “continue,” “predict,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. This report contains forward-looking statements regarding, among other topics, our expected financial position, results of operations, cash flows, strategy, and management’s plans and objectives. Accordingly, these forward-looking statements are based on assumptions about a number of important factors. While we believe that our assumptions about such factors are reasonable, such factors involve risks, and uncertainties that could cause actual results to be different from what appear here. These risk factors include: the ability to adequately pass through customers unanticipated future increases in raw material costs, decreased demand for products, expected orders that do not occur, loss of key customers, the impact of competition and price erosion as well as supply and manufacturing constraints, and other risks and uncertainties. In light of these risks and uncertainties, there can be no assurance that the forward-looking information contained in this report will prove accurate, and our actual results may differ materially from these forward-looking statements.

ITEM 4.CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

(a)Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the Company, has evaluated the effectiveness of Chase’s disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Exchange Act), as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on such evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of March 31, 2019.

 

Management previously reported a material weakness in the Company's internal control over financial reporting, related to our controls in the method used to estimate the ending inventory balances. A material weakness is a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, in internal control over consolidated financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim consolidated financial statement will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

 

Management has enhanced the monthly control related to the review of the estimated ending inventory balances using the retail inventory method by using an external vendor to verify the calculation.

 

Management completed the corrective actions above and as of March 31, 2019 has concluded that the steps taken have remediated the material weakness related to estimating ending inventory.

 

(b)Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Other than the remediation actions described above, there were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
