Jerrick Media Holdings, Inc.

September 30, 2019 and 2018

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited) 

 

Note 1 – Organization and Operations 

 

Jerrick Media Holdings, Inc. (“we,” “us,” the “Company,” or “Jerrick Media” or “Jerrick”) is a technology company focused on the development of digital communities, marketing branded digital content, and e-commerce opportunities. Jerrick’s content distribution platform, Vocal, delivers a robust long-form, digital publishing platform organized into highly engaged niche-communities capable of hosting all forms of rich media content. Through Jerrick’s proprietary algorithm dynamics, Vocal enhances the visibility of content and maximizes viewership, providing advertisers access to target markets that most closely match their interests.

 

The Company was originally incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on December 30, 1999 under the name LILM, Inc. The Company changed its name on December 3, 2013 to Great Plains Holdings, Inc. as part of its plan to diversify its business.

 

On February 5, 2016 (the “Closing Date”), GTPH, GPH Merger Sub, Inc., a Nevada corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of GTPH (“Merger Sub”), and Jerrick Ventures, Inc., a privately-held Nevada corporation headquartered in New Jersey (“Jerrick”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger”) pursuant to which the Merger Sub was merged with and into Jerrick, with Jerrick surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of GTPH (the “Merger”). GTPH acquired, pursuant to the Merger, all of the outstanding capital stock of Jerrick in exchange for issuing Jerrick’s shareholders (the “Jerrick Shareholders”), pro-rata, a total of 1,425,000 shares of GTPH’s common stock. In connection therewith, GTPH acquired 33,415 shares of Jerrick’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Jerrick Series A Preferred”) and 8,064 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Jerrick Series B Preferred”).

   

In connection with the Merger, on the Closing Date, GTPH and Kent Campbell entered into a Spin-Off Agreement (the “Spin-Off Agreement”), pursuant to which Mr. Campbell purchased from GTPH (i) all of GTPH’s interest in Ashland Holdings, LLC, a Florida limited liability company, and (ii) all of GTPH’s interest in Lil Marc, Inc., a Utah corporation, in exchange for the cancellation of 39,091 shares of GTPH’s Common Stock held by Mr. Campbell. In addition, Mr. Campbell assumed all debts, obligations and liabilities of GTPH, including any existing prior to the Merger, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Spin-Off Agreement.

 

Upon closing of the Merger on February 5, 2016, the Company changed its business plan to that of Jerrick Media.

 

Effective February 28, 2016, GTPH entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Statutory Merger Agreement”) with Jerrick, pursuant to which GTPH became the parent company of Jerrick Ventures, LLC, a wholly-owned operating subsidiary of Jerrick (the “Statutory Merger”) and GTPH changed its name to Jerrick Media Holdings, Inc. to better reflect its new business strategy.

 

On September 11, 2019, the Company acquired 100% of the membership interests of Seller’s Choice, LLC, a New Jersey limited liability company (“Seller’s Choice”). Seller’s Choice is digital e-commerce agency based in New Jersey (see Note 4).

  

Note 2 – Significant and Critical Accounting Policies and Practices

 

Management of the Company is responsible for the selection and use of appropriate accounting policies and the appropriateness of accounting policies and their application. Critical accounting policies and practices are those that are both most important to the portrayal of the Company’s financial condition and results and require management’s most difficult, subjective, or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effects of matters that are inherently uncertain. The Company’s significant and critical accounting policies and practices are disclosed below as required by the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Basis of Presentation - Interim Financial Information

 

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information, and in accordance with the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) with respect to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements furnished reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Use of Estimates and Assumptions and Critical Accounting Estimates and Assumptions

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods.

 

Critical accounting estimates are estimates for which (a) the nature of the estimate is material due to the levels of subjectivity and judgment necessary to account for highly uncertain matters or the susceptibility of such matters to change and (b) the impact of the estimate on financial condition or operating performance is material. The Company’s critical accounting estimates and assumptions affecting the financial statements were:

   

(i) Assumption as a going concern: Management assumes that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.
   
(ii) Fair value of long-lived assets: Fair value is generally determined using the asset’s expected future discounted cash flows or market value, if readily determinable. If long-lived assets are determined to be recoverable, but the newly determined remaining estimated useful lives are shorter than originally estimated, the net book values of the long-lived assets are depreciated over the newly determined remaining estimated useful lives. The Company considers the following to be some examples of important indicators that may trigger an impairment review: (i) significant under-performance or losses of assets relative to expected historical or projected future operating results; (ii) significant changes in the manner or use of assets or in the Company’s overall strategy with respect to the manner or use of the acquired assets or changes in the Company’s overall business strategy; (iii) significant negative industry or economic trends; (iv) increased competitive pressures; (v) a significant decline in the Company’s stock price for a sustained period of time; and (vi) regulatory changes. The Company evaluates acquired assets for potential impairment indicators at least annually and more frequently upon the occurrence of such events.
   
(iii)   Valuation allowance for deferred tax assets: Management assumes that the realization of the Company’s net deferred tax assets resulting from its net operating loss (“NOL”) carry–forwards for Federal income tax purposes that may be offset against future taxable income was not considered more likely than not and accordingly, the potential tax benefits of the net loss carry-forwards are offset by a full valuation allowance. Management made this assumption based on (a) the Company has incurred recurring losses, (b) general economic conditions, and (c) its ability to raise additional funds to support its daily operations by way of a public or private offering, among other factors.
   
(iv) Estimates and assumptions used in valuation of equity instruments: Management estimates expected term of share options and similar instruments, expected volatility of the Company’s common shares and the method used to estimate it, expected annual rate of quarterly dividends, and risk-free rate(s) to value share options and similar instruments.

 

-10-

 

 

These significant accounting estimates or assumptions bear the risk of change due to the fact that there are uncertainties attached to these estimates or assumptions, and certain estimates or assumptions are difficult to measure or value.

 

Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various assumptions that are believed to be reasonable in relation to the financial statements taken as a whole under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.

 

Management regularly evaluates the key factors and assumptions used to develop the estimates utilizing currently available information, changes in facts and circumstances, historical experience and reasonable assumptions. After such evaluations, if deemed appropriate, those estimates are adjusted accordingly.

 

Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Principles of consolidation 

 

The Company consolidates all majority-owned subsidiaries, if any, in which the parent’s power to control exists.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company follows paragraph 825-10-50-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for disclosures about fair value of its financial instruments and paragraph 820-10-35-37 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“Paragraph 820-10-35-37”) to measure the fair value of its financial instruments. Paragraph 820-10-35-37 establishes a framework for measuring fair value in U.S. GAAP and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. To increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and related disclosures, Paragraph 820-10-35-37 establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three (3) broad levels. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. The three (3) levels of fair value hierarchy defined by Paragraph 820-10-35-37 are described below:

 

Level 1 Quoted market prices available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date.
   
Level 2 Pricing inputs other than quoted prices in active markets included in Level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date.
   
Level 3 Pricing inputs that are generally observable inputs and not corroborated by market data.

 

-11-

 

 

Financial assets are considered Level 3 when their fair values are determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies or similar techniques and at least one significant model assumption or input is unobservable.

 

The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. If the inputs used to measure the financial assets and liabilities fall within more than one level described above, the categorization is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement of the instrument. 

 

The carrying amount of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities, such as cash, prepaid expenses, accounts payable and accrued liabilities and accrued liquidating damages approximate their fair value because of the short maturity of those instruments. Transactions involving related parties cannot be presumed to be carried out on an arm’s-length basis, as the requisite conditions of competitive, free-market dealings may not exist. Representations about transactions with related parties, if made, shall not imply that the related party transactions were consummated on terms equivalent to those that prevail in arm’s-length transactions unless such representations can be substantiated.

  

Cash Equivalents

 

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

 

The Company minimizes its credit risk associated with cash by periodically evaluating the credit quality of its primary financial institution. The balance at times may exceed federally insured limits.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are recorded at cost. Expenditures for major additions and betterments are capitalized. Maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred. Depreciation is computed by the straight-line method (after taking into account their respective estimated residual values) over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets as follows:

 

    Estimated Useful
Life
(Years)
     
Computer equipment and software   3
Furniture and fixture   2

 

Upon sale or retirement of property and equipment, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is reflected in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Commitments and Contingencies

 

The Company follows subtopic 450-20 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification to report accounting for contingencies. Certain conditions may exist as of the date the condensed consolidated financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company, but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. The Company assesses such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company or un-asserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or un-asserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought therein.

 

-12-

 

  

If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, then the estimated liability would be accrued in the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potential material loss contingency is not probable but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability, and an estimate of the range of possible losses, if determinable and material, would be disclosed.

 

Loss contingencies considered remote are generally not disclosed unless they involve guarantees, in which case the guarantees would be disclosed. 

 

Derivative Liability

 

The Company evaluates its debt and equity issuances to determine if those contracts or embedded components of those contracts qualify as derivatives to be separately accounted for in accordance with paragraph 815-10-05-4 and Section 815-40-25 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. The result of this accounting treatment is that the fair value of the embedded derivative is marked-to-market each balance sheet date and recorded as either an asset or a liability. In the event that the fair value is recorded as a liability, the change in fair value is recorded in the condensed consolidated statement of operations as other income or expense. Upon conversion, exercise or cancellation of a derivative instrument, the instrument is marked to fair value at the date of conversion, exercise or cancellation and then the related fair value is reclassified to equity.

   

In circumstances where the embedded conversion option in a convertible instrument is required to be bifurcated and there are also other embedded derivative instruments in the convertible instrument that are required to be bifurcated, the bifurcated derivative instruments are accounted for as a single, compound derivative instrument. 

 

The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is re-assessed at the end of each reporting period. Equity instruments that are initially classified as equity that become subject to reclassification are reclassified to liability at the fair value of the instrument on the reclassification date. Derivative instrument liabilities will be classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument is expected within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

 

The Company adopted Section 815-40-15 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“Section 815-40-15”) to determine whether an instrument (or an embedded feature) is indexed to the Company’s own stock. Section 815-40-15 provides that an entity should use a two-step approach to evaluate whether an equity-linked financial instrument (or embedded feature) is indexed to its own stock, including evaluating the instrument’s contingent exercise and settlement provisions. The Company changed its method of accounting for the debt and warrants through the early adoption of ASU 2017-11 during the year ended December 31, 2017 on a retrospective basis.

 

The Company utilizes an option pricing model to compute the fair value of the derivative and to mark to market the fair value of the derivative at each balance sheet date. The Company records the change in the fair value of the derivative as other income or expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

On January 1, 2018, we adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), which supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 605, Revenue Recognition (Topic 605), using the modified retrospective transition method applied to those contracts which were not completed as of January 1, 2018. Results for reporting periods beginning after January 1, 2018 are presented under Topic 606, while prior period amounts have not been adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with our historic accounting under Topic 605. The impact of adopting the new revenue standard was not material to our condensed consolidated financial statements and there was no adjustment to beginning retained earnings on January 1, 2018.

 

Under Topic 606, revenue is recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to our customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration we expect to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services.

 

-13-

 

 

We determine revenue recognition through the following steps:

 

  identification of the contract, or contracts, with a customer;

 

  identification of the performance obligations in the contract;

 

  determination of the transaction price;

  

  allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and

 

  recognition of revenue when, or as, we satisfy a performance obligation.

  

Revenue disaggregated by revenue source for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 consists of the following:

 

   Nine Months Ended
September 30,
 
   2019   2018 
Branded content  $57,885   $49,999 
Managed Services  $60,937      
Affiliate sales   6,816    8,920 
Other revenue   7,263    6,472 
   $132,901   $65,391 

  

Branded Content

 

Branded content represents the revenue recognized from the Company’s obligation to create and publish branded articles for clients on the Vocal platform and promote said stories, tracking engagement for the client. The performance obligation is satisfied when the Company successfully publishes the articles on its platform and meets any required promotional milestones as per the contract. The revenue is recognized over time as the services are performed.

 

Below are the significant components of a typical agreement pertaining to branded content revenue:

 

  The Company collects fixed fees ranging from $5,000 to $45,000

 

  The articles are created and published within three months of the signed agreement, or as previously negotiated with the client

 

  The articles are promoted per the contract and engagement reports are provided to the client

 

  The client pays 50% at signing and 50% upon completion

 

  Most contracts include provisions for clients to acquire content rights at the end of the campaign for a flat fee

 

Affiliate Sales

 

Affiliate sales represents the commission the Company receives when a purchase is made through affiliate links placed within content hosted on the Vocal platform. Affiliate revenue is earned on a “click through” basis, upon referring visitors, via said links, to an affiliate’s site and having them complete a specific outcome, most commonly a product purchase. The Company uses multiple affiliate platforms, such as Skimlinks, Amazon, and Tune, to form and maintain thousands of vendor relationships. Each vendor establishes their own commission percentage, which typically range from 2-20%. The revenue is recognized upon receipt as reliable estimates could not be made.

Subscription

 

Vocal+ is a premium subscription offering for Vocal creators.  In addition to joining for free, Vocal creators now have the option to sign up for a Vocal+ membership for either $9.99 monthly or $99 annually. Vocal+ subscribers receive access to value-added features such as increased rate of CPM cost per mille (thousand) (“CPM”) monetization, a decreased minimum withdrawal threshold, a discount on platform processing fees, member badges for their profiles, and early access to new Vocal features. Subscription revenues stem from both monthly and annual subscriptions, the latter of which is amortized over a twelve-month period. Any customer payments received are recognized over the subscription period, with any payments received in advance being deferred until they are earned.

 

Managed Services

The Company provides a Managed Services offering to business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) product and service brands which encompasses a full range of digital marketing and e-commerce solutions. The Company’s Managed Services include the setup and ongoing management of clients’ websites, Amazon and Shopify storefronts and listings, social media pages, search engine marketing, and other various tools and sales channels utilized by e-commerce sellers for sales and growth optimization. In addition to partnering with Managed Services clients, the Company offers a range a la carte services. Contract amounts for Managed Services and a la carte clients range from approximately $500-$7,500 per month.

  

Deferred Revenue

 

Deferred revenue consists of billings and payments from clients in advance of revenue recognition. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had deferred revenue of $66,088.

 

Accounts Receivable and Allowances

 

Accounts receivable are recorded and carried when the Company uploads the articles and reaches the required number of views on the platform. We make estimates for the allowance for doubtful accounts and allowance for unbilled receivables based upon our assessment of various factors, including historical experience, the age of the accounts receivable balances, credit quality of our customers, current economic conditions, and other factors that may affect our ability to collect from customers. The Company did not record an allowance during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018.

     

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company recognizes compensation expense for all equity–based payments granted to employees in accordance with ASC 718 “Compensation – Stock Compensation”. Under fair value recognition provisions, the Company recognizes equity–based compensation net of an estimated forfeiture rate and recognizes compensation cost only for those shares expected to vest over the requisite service period of the award. 

 

Restricted stock awards are granted at the discretion of the Company. These awards are restricted as to the transfer of ownership and generally vest over the requisite service periods, typically over a five-year period (vesting on a straight–line basis). The fair value of a stock award is equal to the fair market value of a share of Company stock on the grant date. 

 

The fair value of an option award is estimated on the date of grant using the Black–Scholes option valuation model. The Black–Scholes option valuation model requires the development of assumptions that are inputs into the model. These assumptions are the value of the underlying share, the expected stock volatility, the risk–free interest rate, the expected life of the option, the dividend yield on the underlying stock and the expected forfeiture rate. Expected volatility is benchmarked against similar companies in a similar industry over the expected option life and other appropriate factors. Risk–free interest rates are calculated based on continuously compounded risk–free rates for the appropriate term. The dividend yield is assumed to be zero as the Company has never paid or declared any cash dividends on its Common stock and does not intend to pay dividends on its Common stock in the foreseeable future. The expected forfeiture rate is estimated based on management’s best estimate.  

 

Determining the appropriate fair value model and calculating the fair value of equity–based payment awards requires the input of the subjective assumptions described above. The assumptions used in calculating the fair value of equity–based payment awards represent management’s best estimates, which involve inherent uncertainties and the application of management’s judgment. As a result, if factors change and the Company uses different assumptions, our equity–based compensation could be materially different in the future. In addition, the Company is required to estimate the expected forfeiture rate and recognize expense only for those shares expected to vest. If the Company’s actual forfeiture rate is materially different from its estimate, the equity–based compensation could be significantly different from what the Company has recorded in the current period.

Loss Per Share

 

Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per common share is determined using the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, adjusted for the dilutive effect of common stock equivalents. In periods when losses are reported, which is the case for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 presented in these condensed consolidated financial statements, the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding excludes common stock equivalents because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

 

The Company had the following common stock equivalents at September 30, 2019 and 2018:

 

   September 30, 
   2019   2018 
Series A Preferred stock   -    - 
Series B Preferred stock   -    - 
Options   882,500    882,500 
Warrants   786,252    5,167,087 
Convertible notes - related party   5,309    100 
Convertible notes   564,794    81,025 
Totals   2,238,855    6,130,712 

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain prior year amounts in the condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto have been reclassified where necessary to conform to the current year presentation. These reclassifications did not affect the prior period total assets, total liabilities, stockholders’ deficit, net loss or net cash used in operating activities.

  

Recently Adopted Accounting Guidance

  

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842).” Under ASU 2016-02, lessees will, among other things, require lessees to recognize a lease liability, which is a lessee’s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease, measured on a discounted basis; and a right-of-use asset, which is an asset that represents the lessee’s right to use, or control the use of, a specified asset for the lease term. ASU 2016-02 does not significantly change lease accounting requirements applicable to lessors; however, certain changes were made to align, where necessary, lessor accounting with the lessee accounting model and ASC Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers.” ASU 2016-02 became effective for us on January 1, 2019 and initially required transition using a modified retrospective approach for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-11, “Leases (Topic 842) - Targeted Improvements,” which, among other things, provides an additional transition method that would allow entities to not apply the guidance in ASU 2016-02 in the comparative periods presented in the financial statements and instead recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. In December 2018, the FASB also issued ASU 2018-20, “Leases (Topic 842) - Narrow-Scope Improvements for Lessors,” which provides for certain policy elections and changes lessor accounting for sales and similar taxes and certain lessor costs. As of January 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASU 2016-02 and has recorded a right-of-use asset and lease liability on the balance sheet for its operating leases. We elected to apply certain practical expedients provided under ASU 2016-02 whereby we will not reassess (i) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (ii) the lease classification for any expired or existing leases and (iii) initial direct costs for any existing leases. We also do not expect to apply the recognition requirements of ASU 2016-02 to any short-term leases (as defined by related accounting guidance). We expect to account for lease and non-lease components separately because such amounts are readily determinable under our lease contracts and because we expect this election will result in a lower impact on our balance sheet.

Recent Accounting Guidance Not Yet Adopted

 

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-16, “Income Taxes (Topic 740): Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other than Inventory”, which eliminates the exception that prohibits the recognition of current and deferred income tax effects for intra-entity transfers of assets other than inventory until the asset has been sold to an outside party. The updated guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption of the update is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the new standard.

 

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, when adopted, will have a material effect on the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Note 3 – Going Concern

 

The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that it will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. 

 

As reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company had an accumulated deficit at September 30, 2019, a net loss of $5.4 million and net cash used in operating activities of $4.7 for the reporting period then ended. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of one year from the issuance of these financial statements.

 

The Company is attempting to further implement its business plan and generate sufficient revenues; however, its cash position may not be sufficient to support its daily operations. While the Company believes in the viability of its strategy to further implement its business plan and generate sufficient revenues and in its ability to raise additional funds by way of a public or private offering of its debt or equity securities, there can be no assurance that it will be able to do so on reasonable terms, or at all. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to further implement its business plan and generate sufficient revenues and its ability to raise additional funds by way of a public or private offering.

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.     

 

Note 4 – Acquisition of Seller’s Choice

 

On September 11, 2019, the Company entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Seller’s Choice Purchase Agreement”) by and between the Company and Home Revolution, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Seller”). Pursuant to the Seller’s Choice Purchase Agreement, subject to the terms and conditions set forth therein, at the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Seller’s Choice Purchase Agreement (the “Seller’s Choice Closing”), the Company acquired 100% of the membership interests of Seller’s Choice. As a result of the transactions contemplated by the Seller’s Choice Purchase Agreement, Seller’s Choice became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (collectively, the “Seller’s Choice Acquisition”).

 

At the Seller’s Choice Closing, the aggregate consideration (the “Consideration”) paid to the Seller was as follows: (i) $340,000, in cash; (ii) 333,334 shares of the Company’s common stock; and (iii) a secured promissory note in the principal amount of $660,000 (the “Seller’s Choice Note”). In connection with the Seller’s Choice Note, the Company, Seller, and Seller’s Choice entered into a Security Agreement whereby the Seller’s Choice Note is secured by the assets of Seller’s Choice. The Company also assumed $28,004 of Seller’s Choice’s payable obligations as part of the Consideration.

 

Following the closing of the transaction, Seller’s Choice’s financial statements as of the Closing were consolidated with the Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company. These amounts are provisional and may be adjusted during the measurement period.

The February 2018 Convertible Note Offering

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2018, the Company conducted multiple closings of a private placement offering to accredited investors (the “February 2018 Convertible Note Offering”) of units of the Company’s securities by entering into subscription agreements with “accredited investors” (the “February 2018 Investors”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $725,000. In addition, $250,000 of the Company’s short-term debt along with accrued but unpaid interest of $40,675 was exchanged for convertible debt in the February 2018 Offering. These conversions resulted in the issuance of 72,669 warrants with a fair value of $181,139. These were recorded as a loss on extinguishment of debt.

 

-19-

 

 

The February 2018 Convertible Note Offering consisted of a maximum of $750,000 of units of the Company’s securities (each, a “February 2018 Unit” and collectively, the “February 2018 Units”), with each February 2018 Unit consisting of (a) a 15% Convertible Secured Promissory Note (each a “February 2018 Convertible Note” and together the “February 2018 Convertible Notes”), convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $.001 per share (“February 2018 Conversion Shares”) at a conversion price of $4.00 per share (the “February 2018 Note Conversion Price”), and (b) a five-year warrant (each a “February 2018 Offering Warrant and together the “February 2018 Offering Warrants”) to purchase common stock equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the shares into which the February 2018 Convertible Notes can be converted into (“February 2018 Warrant Shares”) at an exercise price of $4.00 per share (“February 2018 Warrant Exercise Price”). The February 2018 Offering Notes mature on the second (2nd) anniversary of their issuance dates. The February 2018 Offering Notes are secured by a second priority security interest in the Company’s assets up to $1,000,000.

 

The February 2018 Note Conversion Price and the February 2018 Offering Warrant Exercise Price are subject to adjustment for issuances of the Company’s common stock or any equity linked instruments or securities convertible into the Company’s common stock at a purchase price of less than the prevailing Conversion Price or Exercise Price. Such adjustment shall result in the Conversion Price and Exercise Price being reduced to such lower purchase price, subject to carve-outs as described therein.

 

The conversion feature of the February 2018 Convertible Note Offering provides for an effective conversion price that is below market value on the date of issuance. Such feature is normally characterized as a beneficial conversion feature (“BCF”). When the Company records a BCF the relative fair value of the BCF is recorded as a debt discount against the face amount of the respective debt instrument. The Company recorded a BCF and related debt discount of $37,350, the discount is being accreted over the life of the first Debenture to accretion of debt discount and issuance cost.

 

The Company recorded a $316,875 debt discount relating to 3,625,000 February 2018 Offering Warrants issued to investors based on the relative fair value of each equity instrument on the dates of issuance. The debt discount is being accreted over the life of these notes to accretion of debt discount and issuance cost.

 

In connection with the February 2018 Convertible Note Offering, the Company retained a placement agent (the “Placement Agent”), to carry out the Offering on a “best-efforts” basis. For services in its capacity as Placement Agent, the Company has paid the Placement Agent a cash fee of $94,250 and issued to the Placement Agent shares of the Company’s common stock equal to ten percent (10%) of the Conversion Shares underlying the February 2018 Convertible Notes or 362,500 shares that had a fair value of $74,881, which was recorded as issuance cost and is being accreted over the life of these notes to accretion of debt discount and issuance cost.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company converted $940,675 of principal and $86,544 of unpaid interest into the August 2018 Equity Raise (as defined in Note 7 below).

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2019 the company repaid $16,289 in interest.

 

The March 2018 Convertible Note Offering

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2018, the Company conducted multiple closings of a private placement offering to accredited investors (the “March 2018 Convertible Note Offering”) of units of the Company’s securities by entering into subscription agreements with “accredited investors” (the “March 2018 Investors”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $770,000. In addition, $50,000 of the Company’s short-term debt, $767 accrued but unpaid interest and $140,600 of the Company’s vendor liabilities was exchanged for convertible debt within the March 2018 Convertible Note Offering. These conversions resulted in the issuance of 47,842 warrants with a fair value of $84,087. These were recorded as a loss on extinguishment of debt.

  

The March 2018 Convertible Note Offering consisted of a maximum of $900,000, with an over-allotment option of an additional $300,000 of units of the Company’s securities (each, a “March 2018 Unit” and collectively, the “March 2018 Units”), with each March 2018 Unit consisting of (a) a 14% Convertible Secured Promissory Note (each a “March 2018 Note” and together the “March 2018 Notes”), convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $.001 per share (“Conversion Shares”) at a conversion price of $4.00 per share (the “Conversion Price”), and (b) a four-year warrant (each a “Warrant and together the “Warrants”) to purchase common stock equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the shares into which the Notes can be converted into (“Warrant Shares”) at an exercise price of $4.00 per share (“Exercise Price”). The March 2018 Notes mature on the second (2nd) anniversary of their issuance dates.

Net cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 was $391,292 and $24,084, respectively. This change is attributable to the cash paid for property and equipment and the cash consideration for the acquisition.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements 

 

As of September 30, 2019, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements. 

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our significant accounting policies are described in Note 2 of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. During the nine months ending September 30, 2019, we were not required to make any material estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts and related disclosures of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses. However, if we complete an acquisition, we will be required to make estimates and assumptions typical of other companies. For example, we will be required to make critical accounting estimates related to valuation and accounting for business combinations. The estimates will require us to rely upon assumptions that were highly uncertain at the time the accounting estimates are made, and changes in them are reasonably likely to occur from period to period. Changes in estimates used in these and other items could have a material impact on our financial statements in the future. Our estimates will be based on our experience and our interpretation of economic, political, regulatory, and other factors that affect our business prospects. Actual results may differ significantly from our estimates.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

The Company is not required to provide the information required by this Item as it is a “smaller reporting company,” as defined in Rule 229.10(f)(1).

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls and Procedures

 

The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, refers to controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact there are resource constraints and management is required to apply judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, with the participation of our Principal Executive and Financial Officer, evaluated, as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act of 1934). Based on that evaluation, our Principal Executive and Financial Officer concluded our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level as of September 30, 2019. 

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

No change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) has occurred during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
