PowerVerde, Inc. and Subsidiary

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

September 30, 2020

 

Note 1 – Nature of Business and Presentation of Financial Statements

 

Nature of Business

 

The Company is devoting substantially all of its present efforts to establish a new business involving the development and commercialization of clean energy electric power generation systems, and none of its planned principal operations have commenced. No material revenues from this planned principal operation have been generated since inception. Revenues to date have been from assembly services provided to one customer.

 

Presentation of Financial Statements

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with instructions for Form 10-Q, include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring accruals) which are necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the periods presented. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted. It is suggested that these condensed consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the Annual Report of PowerVerde, Inc. (“PowerVerde,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”) as of and for the year ended December 31, 2019 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on April 14, 2020. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year or for future periods. The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of PowerVerde, Inc., formerly known as Vyrex Corporation (the “Company”), and PowerVerde Systems, Inc., formerly known as PowerVerde, Inc., its wholly-owned subsidiary. Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Note 2 – Going Concern

 

The financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. As of September 30, 2020, we had a working capital deficit of $14,203 compared to a working capital deficit of $63,638 at December 31, 2019. This decrease in the working capital deficit is due primarily to cash raised through related and nonrelated party convertible notes payable financing. As of September 30, 2020, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $12,866,080. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company had a net loss of $293,366 and $207,417 of net cash used in operations for the period.

 

The Company has historically relied upon unrelated and related party debt and equity financing to fund its cash flow shortages and will require either additional debt or equity financing to sustain its operations. The Company’s revenues through 2018 were derived mainly from royalties under its Biotech licensing agreement, which expired in March 2018 and the Company’s revenue since this expiration have been minimal. Those factors create substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company continues to seek funding from private debt and equity investors, as it needs to promptly raise substantial additional capital in order to finance its plan of operations. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to promptly raise the necessary funds on commercially acceptable terms, if at all. If the Company does not raise the necessary funds, it may be forced to cease operations. These financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Note 3 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company held no cash equivalents as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

 

6
 

 

Accounts Receivable and Concentration

 

Accounts receivable consist of balances due from assembly services. The Company monitors accounts receivable and provides allowances when considered necessary. At September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, accounts receivable were considered to be fully collectible. Accordingly, no allowance for doubtful accounts was provided. At September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, accounts receivable were due from one customer.

 

Revenue Recognition and Concentration

 

The Company follows the revenue standards of Financial Accounting Standards Board Update No. 2014-09: “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606).” The core principle of this Topic is that an entity recognizes revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Revenue is recognized in accordance with that core principle by applying the following five steps: 1) identify the contracts with a customer; 2) identify the performance obligations in the contract; 3) determine the transaction price; 4) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations; and 5) recognize revenue when (or as) we satisfy a performance obligation.

 

Royalties are recognized as earned in the period the sales to which the royalties relate occur. The Company has not yet generated any royalty revenues. Manufacturing assembly services are recognized as revenue when the assembled product is delivered to the customer and the Company has completed its performance obligations. Revenues for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 were generated from manufacturing assembly services and are from one customer.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

Impairment losses are recorded on long-lived assets (property, equipment and intellectual property) used in operations when impairment indicators are present and the undiscounted expected cash flows estimated to be generated by those assets are less than the carrying value of such assets. As of June 2019, the Company recognized an impairment loss of $69,178. The intellectual property was fully amortized as of December 31, 2019.

 

The Company reviews intangible assets with finite lives for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. The Company uses an estimate of the undiscounted cash flows over the remaining life of its long-lived assets, or related group of assets where applicable, in measuring whether the assets to be held and used will be realizable. In the event of impairment, the Company would discount the future cash flows using its then estimated incremental borrowing rate to estimate the amount of the impairment.

 

 Stock-based Compensation

 

The Company has accounted for stock-based compensation under the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 718 – “Stock Compensation” which requires the use of the fair-value based method to determine compensation for all arrangements under which employees and others receive shares of stock or equity instruments (stock options and common stock purchase warrants). The fair value of each stock option award is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes valuation model that uses assumptions for expected volatility, expected dividends, expected term, and the risk-free interest rate. Expected volatilities are based on historical volatility of peer companies and other factors estimated over the expected term of the stock options. The expected term of options granted is derived using the “simplified method” which computes expected term as the average of the sum of the vesting term plus the contract term. The risk-free rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant for the period of the expected term.

Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes

 

The Company follows the provisions of ASC Topic 740-10, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes” which clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. This topic also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. There is no uncertain tax positions as of September 30, 2020 and December 30, 2019.

 

Income Tax Policy

 

The Company accounts for income taxes using the liability method prescribed by ASC 740 - Income Taxes. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the difference between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates that will be in effect in the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company records a valuation allowance to offset deferred tax assets if based on the weight of available evidence, it is more-likely-than-not that some portion, or all, of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The effect on deferred taxes of a change in tax rates is recognized as income or loss in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

Research and Development Costs

 

The Company’s research and development costs are expensed in the period in which they are incurred. Such expenditures amounted to $79,939 and $184,301 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The expenditures amounted to $22,500 and $114,620 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

Earnings (loss) per share is computed in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 260, “Earnings per Share”. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock, common stock equivalents and other potentially dilutive securities outstanding during the period. Certain common stock equivalents were not included in the earnings (loss) per share calculation as their effect would be anti-dilutive. Warrants exercisable for 950,000 and 975,000 shares as of September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019, respectively, were excluded from weighted average common shares outstanding on a diluted basis as well as options for 12,180,500 shares.

 

Financial Instruments

 

The Company carries cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses and convertible notes payable, at historical costs. The respective estimated fair values of these assets and liabilities approximate carrying values due to their current nature.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of income and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Note 4 – Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August, 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2020-06, “Debt-Debt with Conversion and other options” which simplifies the accounting for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock. The ASU is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is evaluating the impact ASU 2020-06 could have on its financial statements.

 

There are several other new accounting pronouncements issued or proposed by the FASB. Each of these pronouncements, as applicable, has been or will be adopted by the Company. Management does not believe any of these accounting pronouncements has had or will have a material impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial position, operating results, or cash flows.

Note 5 – Intellectual Property and License Agreement

 

On June 1, 2016, the Company entered into a ten-year License Agreement with Helidyne LLC for total consideration of $100,000 to utilize the Helidyne intellectual property in the manufacturing of planetary rotor expanders and the incorporation of same in the Company’s distributed electric power generation systems. The license agreement also grants the Company an exclusive license to sell the expanders whether manufactured by Helidyne or by the Company. The Company’s royalty obligation begins on the earlier of the commercialization of the product or three years from the effective date of the agreement. Once the royalty obligation begins, the minimum annual royalty is $50,000 for each of the first six years, and $100,000, per commercial year, for the remainder of the agreement. Helidyne has defaulted under the agreement. Royalties would be payable only if Helidyne performs as required, or if the Company elects to produce its own expanders using Helidyne technology.

 

In the second quarter of 2019, management of the Company evaluated the continued default by Helidyne and determined that Helidyne will not be able to perform under the license agreement for the foreseeable future. The Company’s license agreement continues to be active and the Company may utilize the Helidyne intellectual property in marketing its own products. Under the terms of the license agreement, the Company has the right to develop a prototype utilizing the Helidyne technology at its own cost. Due to the continued default by Helidyne and the potential cost of developing its own prototype, the Company has determined that the intangible asset related to the above license agreement is impaired and recognized an impairment charge of $69,178 in the second quarter of 2019, which is 100% of the net carrying value.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, amortization expense was $0 and $5,000, respectively.

 Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Forward Looking Statements

 

Readers are cautioned that the statements in this Report that are not descriptions of historical facts may be forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties. This Report contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Such forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs of our management, as well as on assumptions made by and information currently available to us as of the date of this Report. When used in this Report, the words “plan,” “will,” “may,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “project” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. Although we believe these statements are reasonable, actual actions, operations and results could differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements as a result of the risk factors included in our 2016 Annual Report, or other factors. We must caution, however, that this list of factors may not be exhaustive and that these or other factors, many of which are outside of our control, could have a material adverse effect on us and our ability to achieve our objectives. All forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements set forth above.

 

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere herein.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements of PowerVerde, Inc. are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements requires our management to make estimates and assumptions about future events that effect the amounts reported in the financial statements and related notes. Future events and their effects cannot be determined with absolute certainty. Therefore, the determination of estimates requires the exercise of judgment. We believe the following critical accounting policies affect its more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of financial statements

 

Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes

 

The Company follows the provisions of ASC Topic 740-10, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes” which clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. This topic also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition.

 

Based on our evaluation, we have concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in our condensed consolidated financial statements. Our evaluation was performed for the tax years ended December 31, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, the tax years which remain subject to examination by major tax jurisdictions as of September 30, 2020.

 

We may from time to time be assessed interest or penalties by major tax jurisdictions, although any such assessments historically have been minimal and immaterial to our financial results. In the event we have received an assessment for interest and/or penalties, it has been classified in the condensed consolidated financial statements as general and administrative expense.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue from royalties and assembly services unrelated to the Company’s planned operations is recognized when the goods or services are transferred to the customer. Royalties are recognized as earned in the period the sales to which the royalties relate occur. Manufacturing assembly services are recognized as revenue when the assembled product is delivered to the customer. Revenues recognized under these agreements amount to 100% of total revenues for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019.

 

14
 

 

Common Stock Purchase Warrants

 

The Company accounts for common stock purchase warrants in accordance with ASC Topic 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (“ASC 815-40”). Based on the provisions of ASC 815-40, the Company classifies as equity any contracts that (i) require physical settlement or net-share settlement, or (ii) gives the Company a choice of net-cash settlement or settlement in its own shares (physical settlement or net-share settlement). The Company classifies as assets or liabilities any contracts that (i) require net-cash settlement including a requirement to net cash settle the contract if an event occurs and if that event is outside the control of the Company), or (ii) give the counterparty a choice of net-cash settlement or settlement in shares (physical settlement or net-share settlement). All outstanding warrants as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 were classified as equity.

 

Intellectual Property

 

The Company reviews intangible assets with finite lives for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. The Company uses an estimate of the undiscounted cash flows over the remaining life of its long-lived assets, or related group of assets where applicable, in measuring whether the assets to be held and used will be realizable. In the event of impairment, the Company would discount the future cash flows using its then estimated incremental borrowing rate to estimate the amount of the impairment.

 

Stock-based compensation.

 

We account for stock-based compensation based on ASC Topic 718-Stock Compensation which requires expensing of stock options and other share-based payments based on the fair value of each stock option awarded. The fair value of each stock option is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes valuation model. This model requires management to estimate the expected volatility, expected dividends, and expected term as inputs to the valuation model.

 

Overview

 

From January 1991 until October 2005, the Company devoted substantially all of its efforts and resources to research and development related to its unsuccessful Biotech Business, in particular the study of biological oxidation and antioxidation directed to the development of potential therapeutic products for the treatment of various diseases and conditions. In the most recent years, the Company’s research focused mainly on targeted antioxidant therapeutics and nutraceuticals. The Company, has generated only limited revenue from product sales and has relied primarily on equity financing, licensing revenues, and various debt instruments for its working capital. The Company has been unprofitable since its inception.

 

Following the cessation of material Biotech Business operations in October 2005, the Company turned its primary focus to seeking an appropriate merger partner for its public shell. This resulted in the February 2008 Merger with Vyrex. In March 2009, we assigned most of our Biotech intellectual property other than our rights under existing licensing agreements (the “Biotech IP”) to an investor in exchange for his agreement to pay all future expenses relating to the Biotech IP and to pay us 20% of any net proceeds received from future sale and/or licensing of the Biotech IP. We do not expect this arrangement to generate material revenues.

 

Since the Merger, we have focused on the development, testing and commercialization of our electric power systems, in particular, their applicability to thermal and natural gas pipeline operations. Our business is subject to significant risks, including the risks inherent in our research and development efforts, uncertainties associated with obtaining and enforcing patents and intense competition. See “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 14, 2020.

 

Except as specifically noted to the contrary, the following discussion relates only to PowerVerde since, as a result of the Merger, the only historical financial statements presented for the Company in periods following the Merger are those of the operating entity, PowerVerde.

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended September 30, 2020 as Compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2019

 

Since inception, we have focused on the development, testing and commercialization of our clean energy electric power generation systems. We generated $6,000 and $3,000 in revenue for assembly revenues under the Liberty Agreement in the third quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively. In both years, we had substantial expenses due to our ongoing research and development activities and efforts to commercialize our systems, as well as substantial administrative expenses associated with our status as a public company. Our general administrative expenses increased by $32,989 (66.1%) in the third quarter of 2020 as compared to the third quarter of 2019, primarily because of increased legal fees and payroll expenses. Our research and development expenses decreased by $92,120 (80.4%), primarily because of a decrease in stock options issued for services. Substantial net losses are expected until we are able to successfully commercialize and market our systems, as to which there can be no assurance.

 

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020 as Compared to Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019

 

Since inception, we have focused on the development, testing and commercialization of our clean energy electric power generation systems. We generated $25,000 and $9,000 in revenue for assembly revenues under the Liberty Agreement in the first nine months of 2020 and 2019, respectively. In both years, we had substantial expenses due to our ongoing research and development activities and efforts to commercialize our systems, as well as substantial administrative expenses associated with our status as a public company. Our general administrative expenses increased by $30,828 during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019, primarily because of increase of legal fees, personnel costs and travel expenses. Our research and development expenses decreased by $104,362 (56.6%), primarily because of a decrease in stock options issued for services. Substantial net losses are expected until we are able to successfully commercialize and market our systems, as to which there can be no assurance.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We have financed our operations since inception principally through the sale of debt and equity securities. Also, from 2012 through March 2018 we received material amounts of Biotech IP licensing fees. As of September 30, 2020, we had a working capital deficit of $14,203 compared to a working capital deficit of $63,638 at December 31, 2019. This decrease in the working capital deficit is due primarily to cash raised through related party debt financing.

 

Our Biotech IP license agreement expired in March 2018 due to the expiration of our underlying patents. Consequently, we have no further material source of revenues. We are generating some revenue by using our employee to provide part-time skilled manufacturing services to third parties; however, we expect this arrangement to generate no more than $5,000 per month. We expect to generate substantial revenue from the 374 Water/Duke project in 2021 if we receive the expected purchase order; however, there can be no assurance that we will receive the purchase order.

 

We continue to seek funding from private equity and debt investors, as we need to promptly raise substantial additional capital in order to finance our plan of operations and commercialize our systems. There can be no assurance that we will be able to promptly raise the necessary funds. If we do not promptly raise the necessary funds, we may be forced to cease operations.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

The Company, under the supervision and with the participation of its management, including the Chief Executive Officer and President, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s “disclosure controls and procedures” (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

 

Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate control over financial reporting. Our internal control system was designed to provide reasonable assurance to our management and Board of Directors regarding the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements.

 

All internal controls over financial reporting, no matter how well designed, have inherent limitations, including the possibility of human error and the circumvention of overriding of controls. Therefore, even effective internal control over financial reporting can provide only reasonable, and not absolute, assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Further, because of changes in conditions, the effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting may vary over time. Because of its inherent limitations, internal controls over financial reporting may also fail to prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives.

 

Our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2019. In making this assessment, our management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in Internal Control—An Integrated Framework. Based on this evaluation, our management concluded that, as of September 30, 2020, our internal control over financial reporting was effective.

 

No Attestation Report

 

This quarterly report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the Company to provide only management’s report in this quarterly report.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no significant changes in internal control over financial reporting during the third quarter of 2020 that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

A novel strain of coronavirus (“Covid-19”) emerged globally in December 2019 and has been declared a pandemic.
