Cautionary Note Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements”. These forward-looking statements, including without limitation forward-looking statements made under the caption “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” involve risks and uncertainties. Any statements contained in this Quarterly Report that are not statements of historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements as to our future operating results; plans for the marketing of our services; future economic conditions; the effect of our market and product development efforts; and expectations or plans relating to the implementation or realization of our strategic goals and future growth, including through potential future acquisitions. Forward-looking statements may include, among other things, statements relating to future sales, earnings, cash flow, results of operations, use of cash and other measures of financial performance, as well as statements relating to future dividend payments. Other forward-looking statements may be identified through the use of words such as “believes,” “anticipates,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “plans,” “projects,” “expects,” “expectations,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “targets,” “forecasts,” “strategy,” and other words of similar meaning in connection with the discussion of future operating or financial performance. These statements are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about the industries in which we operate, and the beliefs and assumptions made by management. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent risks, uncertainties and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Accordingly, the Company’s actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. Investors, therefore, are cautioned against relying on any of these forward-looking statements. They are neither statements of historical fact nor guarantees or assurances of future performance. Readers should refer to the discussions under “Risk Factors” contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018 concerning certain factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the results anticipated in such forward-looking statements. These Risk Factors are hereby incorporated by reference into this Quarterly Report.

Gripevine, Inc.

Notes to Interim Condensed Combined Financial Statements

For the Quarterly Period Ended August 31, 2018

(Expressed in US dollars)  

 

1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Gripevine, Inc. (formerly Baixo Relocation Services, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the state of Nevada on January 7, 2014. The Company operated as a relocation service provider for clients moving to the State of Goa, India and ceased this business and engaged in developing and building an online resolution platform after the Share Exchange Agreement as explained in the subsequent paragraphs. The Company’s fiscal year-end is February end.

 

MBE Holdings Inc. (“MBE”) was incorporated as a limited liability company on April 13, 2010 under the laws of the State of Delaware. MBE is engaged in research and development activities to offer an online complaint resolution platform for consumers and business, including ratings, reviews and pollings. As such, its efforts to date have been devoted in building technology that enables access to this market through the development of a tangible product.

 

As explained in Note 7 to the unaudited interim condensed combined financial statements, on February 28, 2017, the Company and MBE and the shareholders of MBE who collectively own 100% of MBE entered into and consummated transactions pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement, whereby the Company agreed to issue to the MBE shareholders an aggregate of approximately 5,248,626 shares of its common stock, par value $0.001, in exchange for 100% of equity interests of MBE held by the MBE shareholders. As a result of the share exchange, MBE became a wholly owned subsidiary of Gripevine.

 

As a result of the Share Exchange Agreement, the acquisition transaction has been accounted for as a common control transaction in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) (Accounting Standard Codification (“ASC”) 805-50, Business Combinations – Common control transactions). The Company has evaluated the guidance contained in ASC 805 with respect to the combinations among entities or businesses under common control and concluded that since the majority shareholders of the Company and MBE are same, therefore, this is a common control transaction and does not result in a change in control at the ultimate parent or the controlling shareholder level.

 

Consequently, common control transactions are not accounted for at fair value. Rather, common control transactions are generally accounted for at the carrying amount of the net assets or equity interests transferred. Any differences between the proceeds received or transferred and the carrying amounts of the net assets are considered equity transactions that would be eliminated in consolidation, and no gain or loss would be recognized in the condensed combined financial statements of the ultimate parent. Resultantly, the financial position and the results of operations of Gripevine and MBE are combined together as if they were operating as one entity from the beginning.

 

2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND COMBINATION

 

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed combined financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“US GAAP”) for interim financial information and the Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”) instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of SEC Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited combined financial statements for the years ended February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017 and notes thereto included in the Form 10-K filed with the SEC on May 29, 2018. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation of combined financial position and results of operations for the interim periods presented have been reflected herein. Operating results for the three and six months ended August 31, 2018, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending February 28, 2019.

 

As explained above in Note 1 to the unaudited interim condensed combined financial statements, as a result of the Share Exchange Agreement, the acquisition transaction has been accounted for as a common control transaction in accordance with the FASB (ASC 805-50). Consequently, the unaudited interim condensed combined financial statements have been prepared as if the Company and MBE were a single organization by the aggregation of their financial statements from the beginning of the previous year and the elimination of transactions and balances between them.

Notes to Interim Condensed Combined Financial Statements

For the Quarterly Period Ended August 31, 2018

(Expressed in US dollars)  

 

3. GOING CONCERN

 

The unaudited interim condensed combined financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has incurred recurring losses from operations and as at August 31, 2018 and February 28, 2018, had a working capital deficiency of $2,653,239 and $2,825,311 respectively and an accumulated deficit of $51,063,799 and $50,158,601, respectively. Management anticipates the Company will attain profitable status and improve its liquidity through continued business development and additional debt or equity investment in the Company.

 

The Company’s continued existence is dependent upon its ability to continue to execute its operating plan and to obtain additional debt or equity financing. There can be no assurance that the necessary debt or equity financing will be available or will be available on terms acceptable to the Company, in which case the Company may be unable to meet its obligations. Should the Company be unable to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business, the net realizable value of its assets may be materially less than the amounts recorded in the combined financial statements. The combined financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability of recorded asset amounts that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue in existence.

 

4. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of unaudited interim combined financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the unaudited interim condensed combined financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Areas involving significant estimates and assumptions include: stock-based compensation, fair value of warrants, useful lives of equipment, deferred income tax assets and related valuation allowance and accruals. Actual results could differ from those estimates. These estimates are reviewed periodically, and, as adjustments become necessary, they are reported in earnings in the period in which they become known.

 

Loss Per Share

 

The Company has adopted the FASB, ASC Topic 260-10 which provides for calculation of “basic” and “diluted” earnings per share. Basic earnings per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing net income or loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings of an entity. Diluted earnings per share exclude all potentially dilutive shares if their effect is anti-dilutive. There were no potentially dilutive shares outstanding as at August 31, 2018 and February 28, 2018.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands required disclosure about fair value measurements of assets and liabilities. ASC 820-10 defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820-10 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. The standard describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

· Level 1 – Valuation based on quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

 

 

 

· Level 2 – Valuation based on quoted market prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets.

 

 

 

 

· Level 3 – Valuation based on unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity, therefore requiring management’s best estimate of what market participants would use as fair value.

 

In instances where the determination of the fair value measurement is based on inputs from different levels of the fair value hierarchy, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the entire fair value measurement falls is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. The Company’s assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment and considers factors specific to the asset or liability.

 

Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management. The respective carrying value of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments approximated their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments or interest rates that are comparable to market rates. These financial instruments include cash and accounts payable. The Company’s cash, which is carried at fair value, is classified as a Level 1 financial instrument. The Company’s bank accounts are maintained with financial institutions of reputable credit, and therefore, bear minimal credit risk.

 

Stock Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock-based payments in accordance with the provision of ASC 718, which requires that all stock-based payments issued to acquire goods or services, including grants of employee stock options, be recognized in the statement of operations based on their fair values, net of estimated forfeitures. ASC 718 requires forfeitures to be estimated at the time of grant and revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates. Compensation expense related to stock-based awards is recognized over the requisite service period, which is generally the vesting period.

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation awards issued to non-employees for services, as prescribed by ASC 718-10, at either the fair value of the services rendered or the instruments issued in exchange for such services, whichever is more readily determinable, using the guidelines in ASC 505-50. The Company issues compensatory shares for services including, but not limited to, executive, management, accounting, operations, corporate communication, financial and administrative consulting services

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

On March 1, 2018, the Company adopted the accounting pronouncement issued by the FASB to clarify existing guidance on revenue recognition. This guidance includes the required steps to achieve the core principle that a company should recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company adopted this pronouncement on a modified retrospective and such adoption did not have a material impact on our combined financial position and/or results of operations.

 

On March 1, 2018, the Company adopted the accounting pronouncement issued by the FASB to clarify how entities should present restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents in the statement of cash flows. This guidance requires entities to show changes in the total of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash in the combined statement of cash flows. This guidance was adopted on a retrospective basis, and such adoption did not have a material impact on combined financial position and/or results of operations.

4. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

In February 2016, an accounting pronouncement was issued by the FASB to replace existing lease accounting guidance. This pronouncement is intended to provide enhanced transparency and comparability by requiring lessees to record right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities on the balance sheet for most leases. Expenses associated with leases will continue to be recognized in a manner similar to current accounting guidance. This pronouncement is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The adoption is required to be applied on a modified retrospective basis for each prior reporting period presented. Although the Company has not yet quantified the impact that the adoption of this pronouncement will have on our combined financial position and/or results of operations, however, the management has begun a process to identify a complete population of our leases. Such process includes reviewing various contracts to identify whether such arrangements convey the right to control the use of an identified asset. The Company continue to evaluate the impact of the new accounting pronouncement, including enhanced disclosure requirements, on our business processes, controls and systems.

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

 

The following discussion provides an analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations and should be read in conjunction with the Interim Condensed Combined Financial Statements and notes thereto included in Item 1 of Part I of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018. The discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of many factors.

 

Overview

 

Gripevine, Inc., formerly known as Baixo Relocation Services, Inc. (the “Company”), was incorporated in the state of Nevada on January 7, 2014, to operate as a relocation service provider for clients moving to the State of Goa, India. On May 31, 2016, Rosy Rodrigues, our prior majority shareholder, sole executive officer and member of the Board of Directors, entered into those certain stock purchase agreements effective October 3, 2016 with certain individuals and/or entities, and sold and transferred the control block of the Company consisting of 5,000,000 shares of restricted common stock, representing approximately 62.5% of the total issued and outstanding shares of common stock and resulting in a change in control.

 

Effective February 28, 2017, we entered into a share exchange agreement (the “Share Exchange Agreement”) with MBE Holdings Inc., a private corporation organized under the laws of Delaware (“MBE”) and the shareholders of MBE (the “MBE Shareholders”), pursuant to which Share Exchange Agreement we acquired all the technology and assets and assumed all liabilities of MBE, and MBE became our wholly-owned subsidiary. In accordance with the terms and provisions of the Share Exchange Agreement, an aggregate of 5,248,626 shares of our restricted common stock were issued to the MBE Shareholders in exchange for 157,458,778 of the total issued and outstanding shares of MBE.

 

Since consummation of the Share Exchange Agreement resulting in MBE being our wholly-owned subsidiary, we have been involved in the ongoing development and marketing of “Gripevine”, which is a customer feedback platform for social customer service and consumer reviews. “Gripevine” includes a proprietary process to assist companies in managing the customer feedback (the “Gripevine Proprietary Process” or “Gripevine”). The Gripevine Proprietary Process helps consumers achieve resolutions while enabling businesses with a cost-efficient way to manage reputation and improve consumer loyalty. Our platform includes the management of ratings, reviews, complaint resolution statuses while offering market data collection features such as scoring, polling, comments, voting, and credibility points – all with the aim of creating a home for connections, resolution, business improvement, and loyalty enhancement. Consumers with legitimate customer feedback can post it (“plant a gripe”) and connect with companies who in turn can interact with their customers on a level playing field to find an amicable resolution.

 

Unlike other review sites that cater specifically to accumulating and displaying consumer feedback and creating pay-walls in order to connect directly with consumers, the Gripevine business model offers a pay-wall free solution so that both consumers and businesses can connect and resolve freely. Management of the Corporation believes that the Gripevine Proprietary Process brings fairness and balance by: (i) ensuring users are real; (ii) allowing companies to reach out and verify customer identity; (iii) flagging as fake those consumers who are not identifiable; and (iv) providing companies free access to their customers. Gripevine’s unique proposition in this social customer experience space is to create consumer-company connections in order to create brand reputation and drive loyalty through efficient and effective handling of online customer feedback and commentary.

 

As Gripevine prepares to transition from its current R&D beta stage to marketing its platform to both consumers and businesses it has identify several opportunities in the customer feedback space. Gripevine sees its consumer to business social platform as a powerful social customer feedback engine connecting consumers to companies while its back end proprietary social CRM dashboard holds tremendous possibilities as a stand-alone customer success engine managing the customer feedback cycle.

Results of Operations

 

The following discussions are based on our interim condensed combined financial statements, including our wholly owned subsidiary. These charts and discussions summarize our financial statements for the three- and six-months periods ended August 31, 2018, and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited combined financial statements for the year ended February 28, 2018 and notes thereto included in the Form 10-K filed with the SEC on May 29, 2018.

 

The following discussion contains forward-looking statements that reflect our plans, estimates and beliefs. The Corporation’s actual results could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to those discussed below and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The financial statements are stated in United States Dollars and are prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

 

Three-Months Period Ended August 31, 2018 Compared to Three-Months Period Ended August 31, 2017 

Total Revenue. We did not generate any revenue during the three-months periods ended August 31, 2018 or August 31, 2017. 

Operating expenses. During the three-months period ended August 31, 2018, we incurred operating expenses in the amount of $454,124, compared to operating expenses incurred during the comparable 2017 period of $877,003 (a decrease of $422,879). Operating expenses include: (i) general and administrative of $124,424 (2017: $85,903); (ii) research and development expenses of $175,547 (2017: $202,130); and (iii) stock-based compensation of $154,153 (2017: $588,970). General and administrative expenses increased by $38,521 mainly due to the hiring of an administrative consultant. Research and development expenses decreased by $26,583 due to efforts to streamline the services of existing consultants. Stock based compensation also decreased by $434,817 due to a lower allocation of fair value of 5,486,500 stock options granted in 2017.

During the six-months period ended August 31, 2018, we incurred operating expenses in the amount of $905,198, compared to operating expenses incurred during the comparable 2017 period of $1,224,608 (a decrease of $319,410). Operating expenses include: (i) general and administrative of $246,968 (2017: $182,556); (ii) research and development expenses of $352,142 (2017: $453,082); and (iii) stock-based compensation of $306,088 (2017: $588,970). General and administrative expenses increased by $64,412 mainly due to the hiring of an administrative consultant. Research and development expenses decreased by $100,940 due to efforts to streamline the services of existing consultants. Stock based compensation also decreased by $282,882 due to a lower allocation of the fair value of 5,486,500 stock options granted in 2017.

 

Net Loss. Thus, during the six-months period ended August 31, 2018, a net loss of ($905,198) was incurred, compared to a net loss of ($1,224,608) for the six months ended August 31, 2017.

 

Translation Adjustment. During the six-months period ended August 31, 2018, we incurred a translation adjustment of $52,244 compared to ($183,984) for the 2017 period, representing change in the foreign exchange rate as a result of translating transaction and balances of our Canadian-based subsidiary.

 

Comprehensive loss. This resulted in a comprehensive loss of $957,442 or $0.0068 per share for the six-months period ended August 31, 2018 compared to a comprehensive loss of $1,040,624 or $0.0102 per share for the 2017 period. The weighted average number of shares outstanding was 133,774,136 for six-months period ended August 31, 2018 compared to 120,000,000 for six-months period ended August 31, 2017.

As of August 31, 2018

 

As at August 31, 2018, our current assets were $147,862 and our current liabilities were $2,801,100, which resulted in a working capital deficit of $2,653,238.

The decrease of $75,979 in total liabilities during the six-months period ended August 31, 2018 from fiscal year ended February 28, 2018 was primarily due to decreases in accrued liabilities of $12,201, due to related parties of $95,554, and amounts due to a shareholder of $36,029, offset by increases in accounts payable of $30,255 and loans payable of $37,550.

Material Commitments

 

The balances due to related parties and shareholder are interest free, unsecured and are repayable on demand. The balances due to related parties and shareholders are mainly in connection with the services and financing provided for the development of an online complaint resolution platform.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

There were no off-balance sheet arrangements during the quarter ended August 31, 2018 that have, or are reasonably likely to have, a current or future effect on our financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to our interests.

 

Plan of Operation

 

As at August 31, 2018, we had an accumulated deficit of $51,063,799 and we will require additional financing in order to enable us to proceed with our plan of operations.

 

When we will require additional financing, there can be no assurance that additional financing will be available to us, or that it can be obtained on commercially reasonable terms. If we are not able to obtain the additional financing on a timely basis, we will not be able to meet our other obligations as they become due. We are pursuing various alternatives to meet our immediate and long-term financial requirements.

 

We anticipate continuing to rely on equity sales of our common stock in order to fund our business operations. Issuances of additional shares will result in dilution to existing stockholders. There is no assurance that we will achieve any additional sales of equity securities or arrange for debt or other financing to fund our planned business activities.

 

Our auditor has issued a going concern opinion. This means that there is substantial doubt that we can continue as an on-going business for the next twelve months unless we generate sufficient revenues. There is no assurance we will ever reach that point. In the meantime, the continuation of the Company is dependent upon the continued financial support from our shareholders, our ability to obtain necessary equity financing to continue operations and the attainment of profitable operations.

 

Our operations and financial results are subject to various risks and uncertainties that could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

We require approximately $1,500,000 for the next 12 months as a reporting issuer and additional funds are required. Before generation of revenue, the additional funding may come from equity financing from the sale of our common stock or loans from management or related third parties. In the event we do not raise sufficient capital to implement its planned operations or divest, your entire investment could be lost.

 

We have not paid any sums for public relations or investor relations.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Please see Note 4 — “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” to the Condensed Combined Financial Statements for a discussion of the effects of recently issued accounting pronouncements.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. To apply these principles, we must make estimates and judgments that affect our reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. In many instances, we reasonably could have used different accounting estimates and, in other instances, changes in the accounting estimates are reasonably likely to occur from period to period. Accordingly, actual results could differ significantly from our estimates. To the extent that there are material differences between these estimates and actual results, our financial condition or results of operations will be affected. We base our estimates and judgments on historical experience and other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable at the time and under the circumstances, and we evaluate these estimates and judgments on an ongoing basis. We refer to accounting estimates and judgments of this type as critical accounting policies, judgments, and estimates. Management believes there have been no material changes during the three months ended August 31, 2018 to the critical accounting policies reported in “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not required to provide the information under this item.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We have carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer/Principal Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) as of August 31, 2018. Based on such evaluation, we have concluded that, as of such date and for the reason described below, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in applicable SEC rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer/Principal Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely discussions regarding required disclosure.

 

Because of our limited operations, we have a limited number of employees which prohibits a segregation of duties. In addition, we lack a formal audit committee with a financial expert. As we grow and expand our operations we will engage additional employees and experts as needed. However, there can be no assurance that our operations will expand.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
