Note 1 — Description of Business

 

AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. (“AgEagle,” or “the Company,”) was originally created to pioneer, innovate and advance aerial imaging data collection and analytics technologies capable of addressing the impending food and environmental sustainability crises that threaten our planet. The Company’s daily efforts are focused on delivering the metrics, tools and strategies necessary to define and implement intelligent sustainability and precision farming solutions that solve important problems confronting the agricultural industry.

 

Since its founding in 2010, AgEagle has been intent on becoming a trusted partner to major food manufacturers and precision growers seeking to adopt and support productive agricultural approaches to better farming practices which limit the impact on our natural resources, reduce reliance on inputs and materially increase crop yields and profits. In early 2019, AgEagle expanded its marketing efforts to provide for the introduction of its proprietary aerial imagery and data analytics platform to municipal, state and federal agencies charged with assessing and supporting sustainability initiatives involving public parks and recreation areas, also referred to as urban green spaces.

 

In addition, we also introduced in the first half of 2019 registration, oversight, compliance and enforcement, and reporting solutions in support of the United States’ emerging hemp cultivation industry and its key stakeholders; namely, state and territorial departments of agriculture, hemp growers and hemp processors.

 

 The Company also designs, produces, distributes and supports technologically advanced small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones) that AgEagle offers for commercial sale to the precision agriculture industry. In addition to UAV sales, in late 2018, the Company introduced a new drone-leasing program, alleviating farmers and agribusinesses from significant upfront costs associated with purchasing a drone, while also relieving them from ongoing drone maintenance and support requirements. Additionally, the new program provides the option of engaging a trained AgEagle pilot to operate the drone and manage the entire image collection process, creating a truly turnkey aerial imagery capture solution for its customers.

 

In the third quarter of 2019, AgEagle announced that we had begun to actively pursue expansion opportunities within the emerging Drone Logistics and Transportation market and revealed that we had received our first purchase orders from a major ecommerce company to manufacture and assemble UAVs designed to meet the critical specifications for drones that are meant to carry packaged goods in urban and suburban areas.

 

Central to the Company’s long-term growth strategy, AgEagle will continue to identify opportunities to leverage its proprietary technological platform and industry expertise to penetrate new, high growth market sectors that may benefit from the Company’s advanced aerial imagery-based data collection and analytics solutions.

 

The Company is headquartered at 117 South 4th Street, Neodesha, Kansas 66757. Its website address is http://www.ageagle.com.

 

Corporate History; Recent Business Combination

 

On March 26, 2018, our predecessor company, EnerJex Resources, Inc. (“EnerJex”), a Nevada company, consummated the transactions contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated October 19, 2017, pursuant to which AgEagle Merger Sub, Inc., a Nevada corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of EnerJex, merged with and into AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc., a privately held company organized under the laws of the state of Nevada (“AgEagle Sub”), with AgEagle Sub surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of EnerJex (the “Merger”). In connection with the Merger, EnerJex changed its name to AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. and AgEagle Sub changed its name to “AgEagle Aerial, Inc.”

Note 1 — Description of Business – Continued

 

Prior to the Merger, EnerJex was formerly known as Millennium Plastics Corporation (“Millennium) and was incorporated in the State of Nevada on March 31, 1999. In August 2006, Millennium acquired Midwest Energy, Inc., a Nevada corporation pursuant to a reverse merger. After such merger, Midwest Energy became a wholly-owned subsidiary, and as a result of such merger, the former Midwest Energy stockholders controlled approximately 98% of our outstanding shares of Common Stock. Midwest then changed its name to EnerJex Resources, Inc., (“EnerJex”) in connection with this merger, and in November 2007, it changed the name of Midwest Energy (one of our wholly-owned subsidiaries) to EnerJex Kansas, Inc. (“EnerJex Kansas”). All of its operations conducted prior to this merger were through EnerJex Kansas, Inc., Black Sable Energy, LLC, a Texas limited liability company (“Black Sable”) and Black Raven Energy, Inc. a Nevada corporation (“Black Raven”). Our leasehold interests were held in our wholly-owned subsidiaries Black Sable, Working Interest, LLC, EnerJex Kansas and Black Raven.

 

 On August 28, 2018, AgEagle acquired all right, title and interest in and to all assets owned by Agribotix, LLC, Agribotix, LLC, a Colorado limited liability company (“Agribotix” ) to be utilized in their business of providing integrated agricultural drone solutions and drone-enabled software technologies and services for precision agriculture. AgEagle’s management believes that purchasing Agribotix’s primary product, FarmLens™, will benefit the Company and its shareholders by developing important vertically integrated products and services. FarmLens is a subscription cloud analytics service that processes data, primarily collected with a drone such as ours, and makes such data actionable by farmers and agronomists. FarmLens is currently sold by the Company as a subscription service and offered either standalone or in a bundle with drone platforms manufactured by leading drone providers like AgEagle, DJI and senseFly.

 

 Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation and Consolidation These consolidated financial statements are presented in United States dollars and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The Company’s consolidated financial statements are prepared using the accrual method of accounting. The Company has elected a December 31 fiscal year end.

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries AgEagle Aerial, Inc., EnerJex Kansas, Inc., and Black Raven Energy, Inc. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The accompanying interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared under the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim financial information, which included condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries as of September 30, 2019. Accordingly, the condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and notes necessary for a comprehensive presentation of the financial position and results of operations and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2018 and included in the Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 27, 2019. It is management’s opinion that all material adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) have been made, which are necessary for a fair financial statement presentation. The results for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019.

 

The summary of significant accounting policies presented below is designed to assist in understanding the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Such consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes are the representations of the Company’s management, who are responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) in all material respects and have been consistently applied in preparing the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

 Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – Continued

 

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 the 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 revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates include the allowance for bad debt warranty costs, obsolete inventory, valuation of stock issued for services and stock options, valuation and estimated useful life of intangible assets and the valuation of deferred tax assets.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments Unless otherwise disclosed, the fair value of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash, accounts receivable, convertible debt, promissory notes, accounts payable and accrued expenses, approximates their recorded values due to their short-term maturities.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents Cash and cash equivalents includes any highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less. The Company held no cash equivalents as of September 30, 2019 or December 31, 2018. The Company maintains cash balances at financial institutions that are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to $250,000. Our bank balances at time may exceed the FDIC limit. To date, the Company has not experienced any losses on its invested cash.

 

 Receivables and Credit Policy Trade receivables due from customers are uncollateralized customer obligations due under normal trade terms requiring payment within 30 days from the invoice date. Terms with our distributor allow for payment terms of 45 days from the invoice date. Trade receivables are stated at the amount billed to the customer. The Company generally does not charge interest on overdue customer account balances. Payments of trade receivables are allocated to the specific invoices identified on the customer’s remittance advice or, if unspecified, are applied to the earliest unpaid invoices.

 

The Company estimates an allowance for doubtful accounts based upon an evaluation of the current status of receivables, historical experience and other factors, as necessary. It is reasonably possible that the Company’s estimate of the allowance for doubtful accounts will change. The Company determined that no allowance was necessary as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

 

Inventories Inventories, which consist of raw materials, finished goods and work-in-process, are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value, with cost being determined by the average-cost method, which approximates the first-in, first-out method. Cost components include direct materials and direct labor, as well as in-bound freight. At each balance sheet date, the Company evaluates its ending inventories for excess quantities and obsolescence. This evaluation primarily includes an analysis of forecasted demand in relation to the inventory on hand, among consideration of other factors. The physical condition (e.g., age and quality) of the inventories is also considered in establishing its valuation. Based upon the evaluation, provisions are made to reduce excess or obsolete inventories to their estimated net realizable values. Once established, write-downs are considered permanent adjustments to the cost basis of the respective inventories. These adjustments are estimates, which could vary significantly, either favorably or unfavorably, from the amounts that the Company may ultimately realize upon the disposition of inventories if future economic conditions, customer inventory levels, product discontinuances, sales return levels or competitive conditions differ from the Company’s estimates and expectations. As of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company had recorded a provision for obsolescence of $7,145 and $10,369, respectively.

Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – Continued

 

 Goodwill Goodwill is recognized for the excess of cost of an acquired entity over the amounts assigned to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination. The Company’s goodwill relates to an acquisition that occurred in August 2018. Goodwill is not amortized but evaluated for recoverability if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such asset may not be recoverable or at least annually. When assessing goodwill for impairment, we have the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events or circumstances leads to a determination that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If, after assessing the totality of events or circumstances, we determine it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, then we perform a two-step impairment test. If we conclude otherwise, then no further action is taken. We also have the option to bypass the qualitative assessment and only perform a quantitative assessment, which is the first step of the two-step impairment test. In the two-step impairment test, we measure the recoverability of goodwill by comparing a reporting unit’s carrying amount, including goodwill, to the estimated fair value of the reporting unit. As of September 30, 2019, there have been no events or changes in circumstances that indicate that it is more likely than not that a goodwill impairment has occurred since the assessment date of August 2018.

 

Intangible Assets – Acquired in Business Combinations The Company performs valuations of assets acquired and liabilities assumed on each acquisition accounted for as a business combination and allocates the purchase price of each acquired business to our respective net tangible and intangible assets. Acquired intangible assets include customer relationships, technology, noncompete agreements and trade names. The Company uses valuation techniques to value these intangibles assets, with the primary technique being a discounted cash flow analysis. A discounted cash flow analysis requires us to make various assumptions and estimates including projected revenue, gross margins, operating costs, growth rates, useful lives and discount rates. Intangible assets are amortized over their estimated useful lives using the straight-line method which approximates the pattern in which the economic benefits are consumed.

 

Long-Lived Assets The Company reviews its long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangible assets held and used for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying value of such assets may not be recoverable. If the estimated undiscounted cash flows that are expected to result from the use of the assets is less than the carrying amount of the assets, an impairment loss is recorded equal to the excess of the carrying amount of the fair value of the assets less costs to sell. There were no impairment losses recorded by the Company during the nine-month period ending September 30, 2019 or 2018.

 

Business Combinations The Company recognizes, with certain exceptions, 100% of the fair value of assets acquired, liabilities assumed, and non-controlling interests when the acquisition constitutes a change in control of the acquired entity. Shares issued in consideration for a business combination, contingent consideration arrangements and pre-acquisition loss and gain contingencies are all measured and recorded at their acquisition-date fair value. Subsequent changes to the fair value of contingent consideration arrangements are generally reflected in earnings. Any in-process research and development assets acquired are capitalized as of the acquisition date. Acquisition-related transaction costs are expensed as incurred. The operating results of entities acquired are included in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations from the date of acquisition.

 

Revenue Recognition and Concentration - The Company generally recognizes revenue on sales to customers, dealers and distributors upon satisfaction of our performance obligations and/or when the goods are shipped and control transfers to our customers. Revenue mainly reflects the consideration we expect to receive in exchange for our products and a small amount for performance of services. The Company generally ships using FOB Shipping Point terms. The Company assesses collectability based on the creditworthiness of the customer as determined by evaluations and the customer’s payment history. Additionally, customers are required to place a deposit or pay upon shipping for each UAV or drone delivery assembly part ordered. Customer payments received in advance of the Company completing performance obligations are recorded as a contract liability.

As a result of the Agribotix acquisition, the Company now has an additional product line which is the sale of subscription services for use of the FarmLens™ platform to process aerial imaging. These subscription fees are recognized ratably over each monthly membership period as the services are provided.

 

Sales concentration information for customers comprising more than 10% of the Company’s total net sales is summarized below:

   Percent of total sales for nine months
ended September 30,
Customers  2019  2018
Customer A   95.9%    
Customer B   12.2%    
Customer C       14.4%
Customer D       13.6%
Customer E       11.9%
Customer F       10.3%

 

Accounts receivable due from customers A & B comprised 80% of accounts receivable as of September 30, 2019.

 

The table below reflects our revenue for the periods indicated by product mix.

 

   For nine months ended September 30,
Type  2019  2018
Product Sales  $54,060   $67,213 
Product Assembly Sales   30,685     
Subscription Sales   23,040    3,625 
Total  $107,785   $70,838 

 

Vendor Concentration - As of September 30, 2019, there was one significant vendor upon which the Company relied to perform stitching in its FarmLens platform. This vendor provided services to the Company which can be replaced by alternative vendors should the need arise.

 

 Shipping Costs - Shipping costs for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 totaled $240 and $1,271, respectively, and $1,218 and $3,766, respectively, which is included in cost of goods sold on the statement of operations.

 

Earnings Per Share - Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the year. Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of Common Stock outstanding plus Common Stock equivalents (if dilutive) related to warrants, options and convertible instruments.

 

Potentially Dilutive Securities - The Company has excluded all common equivalent shares outstanding for warrants, options and convertible instruments to purchase Common Stock from the calculation of diluted net loss per share because all such securities are antidilutive for the periods presented. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had 4,531,924 warrants and 2,270,665 options to purchase Common Stock, and 3,636 shares of Series C Preferred Stock, which may be converted into 6,733,333 shares of Common Stock. As of September 30, 2018, the Company had 828,200 warrants and 1,471,192 options to purchase Common Stock, and 6,199 shares of Preferred Series C shares which were convertible into 4,176,907 of Common Stock.

Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – Continued

 

 Income Taxes - The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with FASB (Financial Accounting Standards Board) ASC Topic 740, Accounting for Income Taxes. This topic requires an asset and liability approach for accounting for income taxes. The Company evaluates its tax positions that have been taken or are expected to be taken on income tax returns to determine if an accrual is necessary for uncertain tax positions. The Company will recognize future accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in income tax expense if incurred. All income tax returns not filed more than three years ago are subject to federal and state tax examinations by tax authorities.

 

Share-Based Compensation Awards - The value the Company assigns to the options that are issued is based on the fair market value as calculated by the Black-Scholes pricing model. To perform a calculation of the value of our options, we determine an estimate of the volatility of our stock. We need to estimate volatility because there has not been enough trading of our stock to determine an appropriate measure of volatility. We believe our estimate of volatility is reasonable, and we review the assumptions used to determine this whenever we issue a new equity instruments. If we have a material error in our estimate of the volatility of our stock, our expenses could be understated or overstated. All share-based awards are expensed on a straight-line basis over the vesting period of the options

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements - In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01, Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, which addresses certain aspects of recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of financial statements. The Company’s adoption of ASU No. 2016-01 effective January 1, 2019 did not have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, FASB issued Account Standards Update 2016-02 – Leases (Topic 842) intended to improve financial reporting of leasing transactions whereby lessees will need to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for virtually all their leases. Under the new guidance, a lessee will be required to recognize assets and liabilities for leases with lease terms of more than 12 months. Consistent with current GAAP, the recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee primarily will depend on its classification as a finance or operating lease. However, unlike current GAAP — which requires only capital leases to be recognized on the balance sheet — the new ASU will require both types of leases to be recognized on the balance sheet. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2019 and it did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. The new guidance is intended to reduce diversity in practice in how transactions are classified in the statement of cash flows. This ASU is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2017. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01, Business Combinations—Clarifying the definition of a business (Topic 805). This ASU clarifies the definition of a business with the objective of providing a more robust framework to evaluate whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. The Company’s adoption of ASU No. 2017-01 effective May 1, 2018 did not have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-09, Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718). This ASU reduces the diversity in practice and cost and complexity when applying the guidance in Topic 718 to a change in terms or conditions of a share-based payment award. The Company’s adoption of ASU No. 2017-09 effective May 1, 2018 did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by FASB did not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company’s present or future financial statements.

Series D Preferred Stock

 

On December 27, 2018, AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Alpha Capital Anstalt (the “Purchaser”). Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) designated a new series of preferred stock, the Series D Preferred Stock, which is non-convertible and provides for an 8% annual dividend and is subject to optional redemption by the Company (the “Preferred Stock”). The Company issued 2,000 shares of Preferred Stock and a warrant to purchase 3,703,703 shares of Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Warrant,” and the shares of Common Stock underling the warrants, the “Warrant Shares”) for $2,000,000 in gross proceeds. The Company also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, granting registration rights to the Purchaser with respect to the Warrant Shares. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company recorded $121,333 of accrued dividends.

 

The Agreement provides that upon a subsequent financing or financings with net proceeds of at least $500,000, the Company must exercise its optional redemption of the Preferred Stock and apply any and all net proceeds from such financing(s) to the redemption in full of the Preferred Stock.

 

The Preferred Stock is nonconvertible, provides for an 8% annual dividend payable semi-annually, and has liquidation rights senior to the Common Stock, but pari passu with the Company’s Series C Preferred Stock. The Preferred Stock has no voting rights, except that the Company shall not undertake certain corporate actions as set forth in the Certificate of Designation that would materially impact the holders of Preferred Stock without their consent.

Note 7 — Equity – Continued

 

The Preferred Stock is subject to optional redemption by the Company at 115% of the stated value of the Preferred Stock outstanding at the time of such redemption, plus any accrued but unpaid dividends and all liquidated damages or other amounts due. Any such optional redemption may only be exercised after giving notice and upon satisfaction of certain equity conditions set forth in the Certificate of Designation, including (i) all dividends, liquidated damages and other amounts have been paid; (ii) there is an effective registration statement covering the Warrant Shares, or the Warrant Shares can be exercised through a cashless exercise without restriction under Rule 144, (iii) the Warrant Shares are listed on an exchange, (iv) the holder is not in possession of material, non-public information, (v) there is a sufficient number of authorized shares for issuance of all Warrant Shares, and (vi) for each trading day in a period of 20 consecutive trading days prior to the redemption date, the daily trading volume for the Common Stock on the principal trading market exceeds $200,000 per trading day.

 

Series C Preferred Stock

 

On November 21, 2017, Alpha Capital Anstalt (“Alpha”) signed a binding commitment letter with EnerJex to provide prior to or at the closing of the Merger a minimum of $4 million in new equity capital (the “Private Placement”). The Private Placement was consummated on March 26, 2018. In connection with the Private Placement, Alpha purchased an additional 4,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock at a purchase price of $1,000 per share for total aggregate consideration of $4 million. At the time of the private placement, the Series C Preferred Stock was convertible into 2,612,245 shares of our Common Stock. In addition, as consideration for their funding commitment, Alpha received a fee equal to 408,552 shares of our Common Stock.

 

Each share of Series C Preferred Stock is convertible into a number of shares of our Common Stock equal to the quotient determined by dividing (x) the stated value of $1,000 per share, by (y) a conversion price of $0.54. Until the volume weighted average price of our Common Stock on NYSE exceeds $107.50 with average trading volume of 200,000 shares per day for ten consecutive trading days, the conversion price of our Series C Preferred Stock is subject to full-ratchet, anti-dilution price protection. Under that provision, if, while that full-ratchet, anti-dilution price protection is in effect, we issue shares of our Common Stock at a price per share (the “Dilutive Price”) that is less than the conversion price, then the conversion price of our Series C Preferred Stock is automatically reduced to be equal to the Dilutive Price. The effect of that reduction is that, upon the issuance of shares of Common Stock at a Dilutive Price, the Series C Preferred Stock would be convertible into a greater number of shares of our Common Stock.

 

Options Issued

 

On March 26, 2018, the EnerJex 2017 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) became effective. Under the Plan, the Company can grant equity-based and other incentive awards to officers, employees and directors of, and consultants and advisers to, the Company. The purpose of the Plan is to help the Company attract, motivate and retain such persons and thereby enhance shareholder value. The Plan shall continue in effect, unless sooner terminated, until the tenth (10th) anniversary of the date on which it is adopted by the Board of Directors (except as to awards outstanding on that date). The Board of Directors in its discretion may terminate the Plan at any time with respect to any shares for which awards have not theretofore been granted; provided, however, that the Plan’s termination shall not materially and adversely impair the rights of a holder, without the consent of the holder, with respect to any award previously granted.

 

On June 18, 2019, at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders of the Company, the shareholders approved a proposal to increase the number of shares of Common Stock reserved for issuance under the Plan from 2,000,000 to 3,000,000. To the extent that an award lapses, expires, is canceled, is terminated unexercised or ceases to be exercisable for any reason, or the rights of its holder terminate, any shares subject to such award shall again be available for the grant of a new award. The number of shares for which awards which are options or SARs may be granted to a participant under the Plan during any calendar year is limited to 500,000. For purposes of qualifying awards as “performance-based” compensation under Code Section 162(m), the maximum amount of cash compensation that may be paid to any person under the Plan in any single calendar year shall be $500,000.

The Company determined the fair-market value of the options to be $248,761. In connection with the issuance of these options to employees and directors, the Company recognized $15,873 and $32,361, respectively, in stock compensation expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company issued options to purchase 534,598 shares of Common Stock to directors and employees of the Company at the fair value exercise prices ranging from $0.51 to $4.33 per share expiring on dates between March 30, 2023 and December 15, 2028. The Company determined the fair-market value of the options to be $387,052. In connection with the issuance of these options to employees and directors, the Company recognized $54,766 and $180,966 in stock compensation expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.

 

On October 4, 2017, AgEagle Sub issued options to purchase 927,775 shares of Common Stock to employees and directors, that were approved by the Board at an exercise price of $0.06 per share. These options were assumed by the Company in the Merger. In connection with the issuance of these options to employees and directors, the Company recognized $1,349 and $4,048 in stock compensation expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.

 

The fair value of options granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were determined using the Black-Scholes option valuation model. The expected term of options granted is based on the simplified method in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission Staff Accounting Bulletin 107 and represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. The Company makes assumptions with respect to expected stock price volatility based on the average historical volatility of peers with similar attributes. In addition, the Company determines the risk-free rate by selecting the U.S. Treasury with maturities similar to the expected terms of grants, quoted on an investment basis in effect at the time of grant for that business day.

 

The significant weighted average assumptions relating to the valuation of the Company’s stock options granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were as follows:

 

   September 30, 2019
Dividend yield   0%
Expected life   3.5-6.5 Years 
Expected volatility   82.38-85.89% 
Risk-free interest rate   1.56-2.23%

Note 11 — Subsequent Events

 

GreenBlock Capital LLC Consulting Agreement

On October 31, 2019, the consulting agreement with the Consultant (See Note 9) was terminated as a result of the Company no longer needing these services to be provided by an outside consultant. During the term of the agreement, the Company paid to the Consultant (i) $25,000 per month, and issued (ii) 500,000 restricted shares of Common Stock at the execution of the agreement. The agreement also provided for the issuance of up to an additional 2,500,000 shares of restricted Common Stock upon the achievement of milestones that were to be determined by the Company and the Consultant during the term of the agreement. There are no early termination penalties incurred as a result of the termination of the consulting agreement. The Consultant may still be entitled to receive the Shares after termination of the Agreement, if the achievement of milestones that commenced during the term of the Agreement are completed after termination.

 

 On November 12, 2019, the Company announced that the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) had chosen AgEagle’s HempOverview software-as-a-solution (SaaS) platform to manage the online application submission and registration process for hemp growers and their farms and hemp fields for the 2020, 2021 and 2022 planting seasons (the “Florida Contract”). Prior to the termination of the Agreement with the Consultant, as part of the Consultant’s services, Consultant introduced the Company to the FDACS, which introduction resulted in the Company signing the Florida Contract. Since the Consultant was instrumental in identifying and introducing the Company to FDACS prior to termination of the Agreement, the execution of the Florida Contract is a milestone achieved by the Consultant under the terms of the Agreement. As a result of the achievement of that milestone, the Company will issue 250,000 shares of Common Stock to the Consultant. The Consultant may be entitled to receive up to another 750,000 shares of Common Stock, which will be contingent upon further milestones to be achieved under the Florida Contract.

We are trusted to help the world’s growers, consumer packaged goods companies and their supply chain partners, and urban green managers proactively assess and manage the health of commercial crops and green infrastructure, reduce the chemicals in produced foods and products and preserve and protect natural resources. In addition, we believe we are at the leading edge of providing state and territorial departments of agriculture, growers and processors with oversight, compliance and enforcement solutions relating to the United States’ emerging hemp cultivation industry. Further, during the fall of 2019, we began actively pursuing expansion opportunities within the emerging Drone Logistics and Transportation market.

 

On March 26, 2018, EnerJex Resources, Inc. (“EnerJex”), a Nevada company, consummated the transactions contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated October 19, 2017, pursuant to which AgEagle Merger Sub, Inc., a Nevada corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of EnerJex, merged with and into AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc., a privately held company organized under the laws of the state of Nevada (“AgEagle Sub”), with AgEagle Sub surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of EnerJex (the “Merger”). In connection with the Merger, EnerJex changed its name to AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. (the “Company, “we,” “our,” or “us”) and AgEagle Sub changed its name to “AgEagle Aerial, Inc.” As a result of the Merger, through AgEagle Sub, we are engaged in the business of designing, developing, producing, distributing and supporting technologically advanced small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones) that we supply to the precision agriculture industry. Additionally, we recently announced a new service offering using our leased UAVs and associated data processing services for the sustainable agriculture industry. We are headquartered in Neodesha, Kansas, and are a manufacturer of unmanned aerial vehicles focused on providing actionable data to the precision agriculture industry.

 

Our Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Business

 

We design, manufacture, assemble, distribute and support technologically advanced small unmanned aerial systems (UAVs or drones) that we offer for commercial sale to the precision agriculture industry. Additionally, we also provide leased UAVs and associated data processing services to the sustainable agriculture industry.

Our first commercially available product was the AgEagle Classic which was followed shortly thereafter by the RAPID System. As we improved and matured our product, we launched the RX-60 and the RX-48. The success we have achieved with our legacy products, which we believe has carried over into the continued improvement of the RX-60 and RX-48, stems from our ability to invent and deliver advanced solutions utilizing our proprietary technologies and trade secrets that help farmers, agronomists and other precision agricultural professionals operate more effectively and efficiently. Our core technological capabilities, developed over five years of research and innovation, include a lightweight laminated shell that allows the UAV platform to perform under challenging flying conditions, a camera with a Near Infrared (NIR) filter, a rugged foot launcher (RX-60), and high-end software that automates drone flights and provides geo-referenced data.

 

Our UAV is an advanced fixed wing drone. Its design is based upon the years of experience our management has with aircraft and composite parts construction. All of our UAVs are electrically powered, weigh approximately six pounds fully loaded, are capable of flying over approximately 400 acres (roughly 60 minutes of airtime) per flight from their launch location, and are configured to carry a camera with our NIR filter that uses near infrared images to capture crop data. We believe that these characteristics make our UAVs well suited for providing a complete aerial view of a farmer’s field to help precisely identify crop health and field conditions faster than any other method available.

 

Our UAVs were initially specifically designed to help farmers increase profits by pinpointing areas where nutrients or chemicals need to be applied, as opposed to traditional widespread land application processes; thus decreasing input costs, reducing the amount of chemicals applied and potentially increasing yields. Our products were designed for busy agriculture professionals who do not have the time to process images on their computers, which some of our competitors require. The software can automatically take pictures from the camera, stitch the photos together through the cloud, and deliver a geo-referenced, high quality aerial map to the user’s desktop or tablet device using specialty precision agriculture software such as SST Software, SMS Software or most other agricultural software solutions. The result is a prescription or zone map that can then be used in a field computer that is typically found in a sprayer or applicator designed to drive through fields to precisely apply the amount of nutrients or chemicals required to continue or restore the production of healthy crops.

 

In addition to UAV sales, in late 2018, we introduced a new drone-leasing program, alleviating farmers and agribusinesses from significant upfront costs associated with purchasing a drone, while also relieving them from ongoing drone maintenance and support requirements. Additionally, the new program provides the option of engaging a trained AgEagle pilot to operate the drone and manage the entire image collection process, creating a truly turnkey aerial imagery capture solution for our customers.

 

Our business is seasonal in nature and, as a result, our revenue and expenses and associated revenue trends fluctuate from quarter to quarter. In addition, research and development activities are integral to our business and we follow a disciplined approach to investing our resources to create new technologies and solutions.

 

Acquisition of Agribotix

 

On August 28, 2018, we closed the transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) dated July 25, 2018 with AgEagle Aerial, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company; Agribotix, LLC, a Colorado limited liability company (“Agribotix” or the “Seller”); and the other parties named therein. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, we acquired all right, title and interest in and to all assets owned by Agribotix and utilized in their business for providing integrated agricultural drone solutions and drone-enabled software technologies and services for precision agriculture, except for certain excluded assets as set forth in the Purchase Agreement. At closing, we also assumed certain commitments under various third-party contracts pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement.

 

We believe that purchasing Agribotix’s primary product, FarmLens™, will benefit us and our shareholders by developing important vertically integrated products and services. FarmLens is a subscription cloud analytics service that processes data, primarily collected with a drone such as ours, and makes such data actionable by farmers and agronomists. FarmLens is currently sold by us as a subscription service and offered either standalone or in a bundle with drone platforms manufactured by leading drone providers like AgEagle, DJI and senseFly.

 The FarmLens platform extends our reach as a business through key partnerships with, and direct integration into offerings by, leading agricultural companies, including John Deere and The Climate Corporation, a subsidiary of Bayer. In October 2018, AgEagle announced that we were expanding on Agribotix’s existing partnership with The Climate Corporation’s FieldView™ platform, enabling farmers to share images from FarmLens to their FieldView accounts and compare them alongside other valuable metrics, including planting and yield data. To date, Agribotix has processed agricultural imagery for approximately 1.3 million acres of crops and analyzed data for over 50 different crop types from over 50 countries around the world.

 

In December 2018, we unveiled our plans to develop a FarmLens Mobile app, extending the numerous benefits of the FarmLens platform to mobile devices. The FarmLens Mobile app was commercially launched in the second quarter 2019 and is now available for download on any iPhone, iPad or Android device.

 

Our Sustainability Platform

 

The negative impact of agriculture on both the environment and society has been widely documented with unsustainable farming practices serving to confound land conversion and habitat loss, wasteful water consumption, soil erosion and degradation, pollution and climate change. It has been reported that agricultural production is believed to be responsible for 70% of river and stream pollution from chemicals, silt and animal waste (source: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). Moreover, agriculture is the largest consumer of the Earth’s available freshwater: 70% of withdrawals from watercourses and groundwater are for agricultural usage, three times more than 50 years ago. By 2050, the global water demand of agriculture is estimated to increase by a further 19% due to irrigational needs (source: GlobalAgriculture.org).

 

Left unchecked, many believe that farming practiced without care presents the greatest global threat to species and ecosystems, especially given that demand for more food - and healthier food - is rising exponentially. According to the World Resources Institute, our planet will need 70 percent more food to feed a global population of 9.6 billion by 2050. In view of looming environmental and social crises facing our planet, both consumer packaged goods companies and their supply chain partners recognize the need ​to accelerate their shift towards greater transparency in their sustainability practices and policies as they assume greater responsibility for mitigating the use of chemicals in crop production and preserving natural resources.

 

In support of our efforts to promote our sustainability platform, in October 2018 we became a corporate partner of the Cool Farm Alliance (CFA), a non-profit organization promoting sustainability in the agriculture industry. Through the CFA’s Cool Farm Tool, businesses can utilize farming data to collaborate and develop sustainability metrics that provide the necessary insights to decrease their impact on the environment. By combining AgEagle’s technological capabilities and the unique data we can collect with the knowledge and expertise of the CFA team, we see an opportunity to measurably contribute to the establishment of a gold industry standard for sustainable agriculture.

 

For this year’s growing season, we announced an agreement with one of the largest specialty crop producers in North America as our first customer on our sustainability platform and drone leasing program. As part of the agreement, we are providing access to UAVs equipped with sensors for the growing season, along with access to data connected devices for farms covering thousands of acres in the United States. We are also setting up a network of soil moisture monitoring devices with rain gauges and soar sensors to provide in-depth data analytics at the field level. All of this is expected to culminate in a sustainability dashboard and scorecard that will provide data to assess and affirm soil health, water utilization efficiency and pest and disease control; which will, in turn, aid this specialty crop producer in showcasing its sustainability efforts and results to its customers and supply chain partners.

 

Leveraging the underlying imaging technology and robust analytics capabilities of FarmLens, in March 2019 AgEagle introduced ParkView, a proprietary aerial imagery and data analytics platform designed specifically for assessing and supporting sustainability initiatives involving municipal, state and federal public parks and recreation areas. In tandem with the formal market launch of ParkView, the Company announced that it signed Denver Parks and Recreation (“DPR”) in Denver, Colorado as the first customer on the ParkView platform. DPR will utilize aerial imagery and sensor data to better inform vegetative maintenance and natural resource preservation for its green infrastructure, comprising more than 6,000 acres of public green space within the city limits. In addition, our staff will also provide DPR with in-depth training on best management practices for UAV operations in a municipal setting. Research has shown that urban green infrastructure can materially improve water quality and conservation, attract investment, revive distressed neighborhoods, encourage redevelopment and provide outdoor recreational opportunities for cities of all scope and sizes worldwide, thus effectively helping to align social, economic, public health and environmental goals.

Emerging U.S. Hemp Cultivation Industry

 

In December 2018 with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, industrial hemp is now recognized as an agricultural commodity, such as corn, wheat or soybeans. Consequently, 2019 marks the year farmers and regulators, alike, must collaborate on building an efficient market for the production and sale of hemp. Historically, hemp was an underpinning of American agriculture from the 17th century through the early 1900’s. This recent change in modern policy is expected to restore the legacy of American hemp production as a prolific and highly sustainable crop staple. In fact, according to research firm Frontier Data’s Global State of Hemp: 2019 Industry Outlook, 2018 sales of hemp worldwide were driven by continued strength in Chinese textiles, European industrials, Canadian foods and the U.S. hemp-derived CBD market. However, continued demand in the CBD market “will be the main driving force behind the global hemp market’s continued growth,” which the firm estimates will reach $5.7 billion by 2020.

 

In late May 2019, AgEagle announced the introduction of HempOverview, a proprietary web- and map-based Software-as-a-Solution (SaaS) technology designed to aid U.S. state and territorial departments of agriculture, growers and processors in efficiently optimizing oversight, compliance and enforcement of the new hemp cultivation industry fast emerging in the United States. Growers, state administrators and/or processors may connect and maintain proactive two-way communications and collaborate on developing best practices for hemp cultivation registration/permitting, planting/harvesting planning, regulatory oversight and compliance enforcement. Moreover, anticipated benefits for state administrators include lower program management costs, new revenue channel development, real or near real-time remote, centralized oversight of hemp fields, and much more.

 

On November 12, 2019, the Company announced that the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) had chosen AgEagle’s HempOverview software-as-a-solution (SaaS) platform to manage the online application submission and registration process for hemp growers and their farms and hemp fields for the 2020, 2021 and 2022 planting seasons.

 

Drone-Enabled Package Delivery Market Taking Flight

 

On September 3, 2019, we announced that we had actively begun pursuing expansion opportunities within the emerging Drone Logistics and Transportation Market – a market forecasted by MarketsandMarkets to grow to $29.06 billion by the year 2027. Accordingly, companies, including Alphabet (Google), FedEx, Intel, Qualcomm, Amazon, Target, Walmart, Alibaba, UPS, 7-Eleven, Uber and others, are developing commercial drone delivery service initiatives as part of their long-term strategic growth plans. We believe these companies intend to leverage the latest in unmanned aerial vehicle technologies to deliver consumer products, foods, medicines and other types of lightweight freight direct to consumers and businesses in the fastest, most cost efficient and environmentally responsible manner possible – a practical alternative to costly auto transport.

 

We have received our first purchase orders from a major ecommerce company to manufacture and assemble UAVs designed to meet the critical specifications for drones that are meant to carry goods in urban and suburban areas. Revenue generation from these purchase orders commenced in the third quarter ended September 30, 2019, and is expected to continue and increase in the fourth quarter of 2019.

 

Our Growth Strategy

 

We intend to grow our business by achieving greater market penetration of the growing precision agriculture marketplace; by promoting our new service targeting the sustainable agriculture marketplace for the 2019 growing season; and by creating new, easier to use and higher value products that position AgEagle as a leading innovator and trusted solutions provider in high growth markets where advanced aerial imaging and data capture technology can be used to achieve specific business and sustainability objectives. Currently, our management is actively exploring new vertical expansion opportunities in other industries outside of agriculture and its related areas, including drone-enabled package delivery.

 

Key components of our growth strategy include the following:

 

  Build a strong worldwide distribution network to offer a best-in-class precision agriculture platform. We believe we can establish our flying wing product and systems as leading technologies in the precision agriculture marketplace. We will work to identify and establish relationships with dealers and customers in key agricultural regions worldwide, which will help make it possible for every farmer in those markets to have access to the AgEagle platform. Potential distributors are spread across six continents, covering a majority of the world’s major regions including the U.S., Canada, South America, Eastern and Western Europe, Southeast Asia and Oceania.

 

25 

 

 

  Market our new UAV-based monitoring service for large food manufacturers desiring to achieve and maintain optimal sustainability practices on their farms. We are in the process of marketing a new service for the 2019 growing season targeted towards large food manufacturers that are being pressured by consumers to create food products with less chemicals that are more sustainably sourced. We believe our current technology, combined with other available third-party platforms/solutions via a well-defined modern RESTful API, will allow us to offer a product to these consumer products manufacturers that will serve to accelerate business growth faster than if we just focused on growth opportunities within the precision agriculture marketplace.
     
  Continue to explore partnerships with companies that can expand our offerings. We intend to expand our product offerings by building relationships and partnerships with companies that have vertical, synergistic technologies. In addition, other technology alliances may include the acquisition or development of other electronics, software, sensors or more advanced aerial platforms. We are constantly meeting and in discussions with groups that could fill these roles and collaborate with us on new development ideas.
     
  Support and expand our University Drone Program. Subsequent to the end of 2018, we introduced our new University Drone Program providing for AgEagle’s aerial imaging collection and data processing systems to be purchased and utilized by colleges and universities to enhance the curriculum of their agriculture technology departments – including in precision ag, agronomy, plant science and mapping, among other related study areas. In January 2019, we announced that both Arkansas State University-Newport (ASU) and Modesto Junior College (MJC) in California have teamed with our Company to provide students with hands-on training and experience properly operating drones, creating digital aerial maps through the AgEagle FarmLens platform, and using data collected to achieve sustainable farming objectives. We believe that our University Drone Program not only represents a new revenue channel for us, but it will serve as a powerful brand-building opportunity for AgEagle among those who are studying to become commercial growers, agronomists and precision and sustainability ag experts and specialists.
     
  Deliver new and innovative solutions in the precision agriculture space. Our research and development efforts are the foundation of our Company, and we intend to continue investing in our own innovations, pioneering new and enhanced products and solutions that enable us to satisfy our customers – both in response to and in anticipation of their needs. We believe that by investing in research and development, we can be a leader in delivering innovative products that address market needs within our current target markets, enabling us to create new opportunities for growth.
     
  Work with municipal, state and federal public parks and recreations agencies to adopt ParkView as a preferred solution for assessing and supporting sustainability initiatives for ‘urban green’ spaces. With the signing of Denver Parks and Recreation in Denver, Colorado, AgEagle now has a client who is benefitting from the utilization of ParkView to better inform vegetative maintenance and natural resource preservation of its green infrastructure, comprising more than 6,000 acres of public green space within the city limits. We intend to market our ParkView platform to other prospective U.S. city, state and federal agencies.
     
  Actively explore and pursue opportunities for providing meaningful and effective solutions for the emerging U.S. hemp cultivation industry. By leveraging AgEagle’s proven FarmLens technology solution and adapting it to effectively address the specs required for hemp cultivation oversight and compliance, we believe that HempOverview can win distinction as the industry’s preferred and standardized, data and map-driven solution. The platform largely removes the guesswork from hemp regulatory oversight while simplifying the monitoring and management of hemp cultivation programs for any state, territory and tribal nation in the country seeking to capitalize on the opportunity that hemp production now represents.
     
  Pursue the expansion of the AgEagle platform of products and solutions into other complementary industries besides agriculture, including the Drone Logistics and Transportation market. We have begun actively exploring opportunities outside of traditional agriculture as we continue to expand and grow the AgEagle platform. We are confident in the UAV products and solutions we offer today and believe that these products and solutions could provide other industries the same kind of optimization we are currently providing the agriculture industry. In addition to drone package deliveries, we believe that our solutions and services may also be well suited for the aerial imaging and data collection and analytics needs involved in land surveying and scanning, insurance, inspections and search and rescue operations, among other industrial applications.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

Since our inception, except for standard operating leases, we have not engaged in any off-balance sheet arrangements, including the use of structured finance, special purpose entities or variable interest entities. We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to stockholders.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based on our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Our most critical estimates include those related to revenue recognition, inventories and reserves for excess and obsolescence, accounting for stock-based awards, and income taxes. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and assumptions. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other factors that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Our actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

See Note 2 in the accompanying unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements for a listing of our critical accounting policies.

 

Results of Operations

 

For the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019 and 2018

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, we recorded revenues of $41,616 compared to revenues of $17,130 for the same period in 2018, an 143% increase. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, we recorded revenues of $107,785 compared to revenues of $70,838 for the same period in 2018, a 52% increase. For the three months ended September 30, 2019, we had an increase in our revenue as we received and started to fulfill sales as part of our new drone delivery assembly sales initiatives. Our year-to-date sales also increased as part of our drone delivery assembly sales, our continued drone sales and our shift in strategy to focus on a more services-oriented model driven by advanced aerial imagery-based data collection and analytics solutions that help to promote and proactively support corporate sustainability initiatives and the emerging hemp cultivation industry. We are also in the process of continuing to address this change by creating and supporting new, easier to use and higher value products that position us as a leading innovator and trusted solutions provider for the agriculture marketplace overall.

 

 For the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, cost of sales totaled $32,728 and $3,429, respectively, an increase of 854%. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, costs of sales totaled $85,875 and $45,401, respectively reflecting an increase in our cost of goods sold of 89%. We also had gross profit of $8,888, or 21% for the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared to $13,701, or 35%, for the comparable period in 2018, resulting in a decrease in our profit margin in the current period. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, we had a gross profit of $21,910, or 20%, and $25,437, or 36%, a decrease in our profit margins of 14%. The main contributor to the increase in our cost of sales for the quarter and year-to-date resulting in a decrease in our gross margins is due to costs associated with repurposing and adding functionality to our FarmLens platform. As a result of our shift in strategy from drone sales bundled with the FarmLens platform towards our new ParkView and HempOverview platforms that were not marketed as part of our sales model until mid-2019, fixed costs associated with supporting the platform caused our margins to decrease, but as we continue to increase our sales, our margins will increase accordingly.

 

27 

 

 

We recorded total operating expenses of $571,926 during the three months ended September 30, 2019, a 21% decrease as compared to operating expenses of $727,176 in the same period of 2018. Our operating expenses are comprised of general and administrative costs, professional fees, research and development costs and selling costs. General and administrative expenses totaled $396,432 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared to $583,538 in 2018, a decrease of 32%, due to less investor relations costs and related stock issuances in exchange for these services offset by added payroll expenses, financial filing costs and amortization costs associated with intangibles assets acquired as a result of the Agribotix acquisition. Professional fees totaled $152,192 for the three months ended September 30, 2019, compared to $118,923 for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The increase in professional fees is mainly due to an increase in consulting services associated with the GreenBlock Capital agreement. For the three months ended September 30, 2019, we recorded selling expenses of $23,302 compared to $24,715 for the three months ended September 30, 2018, representing a decrease of 6% due to less travel and conference expenses for purposes of business development as we focus on our internal product development of HempOverview and ParkView platforms.

 

We recorded total operating expenses of $1,889,214 and $1,613,563, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, a 17% increase. Our operating expenses are comprised of general and administrative costs, professional fees, research and development costs and selling costs. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, we recorded $1,305,221 and $987,422 in general and administrative expenses, respectively resulting in a 32% increase. The increase is mainly due to added salary costs for new and existing employees along with stock compensation costs for employees and directors due to the issuance of stock options. Also contributing to the increase in general and administrative expenses is the amortization costs associated with intangibles assets acquired as a result of the Agribotix acquisition, along with an increase in costs associated with being a publicly traded company. Professional fees also decreased 6% as we had $531,885 of expenses for the current period versus $562,952 in the comparable prior period. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in legal, accounting and investor relations costs offset by an increase in consulting services associated with the GreenBlock agreement. Lastly, included in operating expenses was selling costs that decreased 17% to $52,108 versus $62,713 in the prior comparable period due to less travel and conference expenses for the purposes of business development, as we focus on our internal product development of HempOverview and ParkView platforms.

 

There were no other expenses recorded during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, compared to $0 and $476 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively, for research and development costs.

 

Interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 was $0 and $3,094, respectively; and $501 and $30,508, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The decrease was due to the conversion of all debt, except for a promissory note assumed as a result of the EnerJex merger, and the amortization of debt discounts and warrant expense upon completion of the reverse merger on March 26, 2018.

 

Our net loss was $563,038 and $689,593 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively and $1,867,805 and $1,605,300 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. This represents a $126,555 decrease for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and an increase of $262,505 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018. Overall, the increase in net loss is due to greater operating costs as a result of the shift in our sales strategy. We are in the process of continuing to address the shift in our sales strategy by developing our new platforms while promoting our new service models targeting the hemp and sustainable agriculture marketplaces.

 

Cash Flows

 

Cash on hand was $1,381,757 at September 30, 2019 compared to the $2,601,730 at December 31, 2018, a decrease of $1,219,974. Cash used in operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $1,121,260 compared to $2,045,032 of cash used in operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The decrease in cash was driven mainly by payments of payables for increase payroll expenses, consulting expenses, and costs associated with being a publicly traded company.

 

28 

 

 

There was $57,715 cash used in investing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 as compared to cash used in investing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 of $268,745. The use of cash in the quarter ended September 30, 2019 was for the purchase of equipment to be used for purposes of soil sampling equipment used in our sustainability services; and the cash used during the comparable nine-month period in 2018 was for the acquisition of Agribotix offset by cash received from EnerJex as a result of the reverse merger.

 

 Cash used in financing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $40,998 compared to cash provided by financing activities of $3,955,844 as of September 30, 2018. The decrease was the result of a $4,000,000 investment that occurred in the first quarter of 2018, net of $20,000 in fees invested in exchange for Common and Preferred shares in the Company versus payments made on promissory note for the beginning of 2019.

 

 Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2019, we had working capital of $1,020,966 and a loss from operations of $1,867,805 for the period then ended. While there can be no guarantees, we believe cash on hand, in connection with cash from operations will be sufficient to fund operations for the next year of operations. In addition, we intend to pursue other financing opportunities with outside investors.

 

On November 21, 2017, Alpha Capital Anstalt (“Alpha”) signed a binding commitment letter EnerJex to provide prior to or at the closing of the Merger a minimum of $4 million in new equity capital (the “Private Placement”). The Private Placement was consummated on March 26, 2018. In connection with the Private Placement, Alpha purchased an additional 4,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock at a purchase price of $1,000 per share for total aggregate consideration of $4 million. At the time of private placement, the Series C Preferred Stock was convertible into 2,612,245 shares of our Common Stock. In addition, as consideration for their funding commitment, Alpha received a fee equal to 408,552 shares of our Common Stock.

 

Each share of Series C Preferred Stock is convertible into a number of shares of our Common Stock equal to the quotient determined by dividing (x) the stated value of $1,000 per share, by (y) a conversion price of $0.54. Until the volume weighted average price of our Common Stock on NYSE exceeds $107.50 with average trading volume of 200,000 shares per day for ten consecutive trading days, the conversion price of our Series C Preferred Stock is subject to full-ratchet, anti-dilution price protection. Under that provision, if, while that full-ratchet, anti-dilution price protection is in effect, we issue shares of our Common Stock at a price per share (the “Dilutive Price”) that is less than the conversion price, then the conversion price of our Series C Preferred Stock is automatically reduced to be equal to the Dilutive Price. The effect of that reduction is that, upon the issuance of shares of Common Stock at a Dilutive Price, the Series C Preferred Stock would be convertible into a greater number of shares of our Common Stock.

 

On December 27, 2018, we entered into Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with an institutional investor (the “Purchaser”). Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the board of directors of the Company designated a new series of preferred stock, the Series D Preferred Stock, which is non-convertible and provides for an 8% annual dividend and is subject to optional redemption by the Company (the “Preferred Stock”). The Company issued 2,000 shares of Preferred Stock and a warrant (the “Warrant”) to purchase 3,703,703 shares of the Company’s Common Stock for $2,000,000 in gross proceeds.

Contractual Obligations

 

GreenBlock Capital LLC Consulting Agreement 

On October 31, 2019, the consulting agreement with the Consultant (See Note 9) was terminated as a result of us no longer needing these services to be provided by an outside consultant. During the term of the agreement, we paid to the Consultant (i) $25,000 per month, and issued (ii) 500,000 restricted shares of Common Stock at the execution of the agreement. The agreement also provided for the issuance of up to an additional 2,500,000 shares of restricted Common Stock upon the achievement of milestones that were to be determined by us and the Consultant during the term of the agreement. There are no early termination penalties incurred as a result of the termination of the consulting agreement. The Consultant may still be entitled to receive the Shares after termination of the Agreement, if the achievement of milestones that commenced during the term of the Agreement are completed after termination.

 

 On November 12, 2019, we announced that the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) had chosen our HempOverview software-as-a-solution (SaaS) platform to manage the online application submission and registration process for hemp growers and their farms and hemp fields for the 2020, 2021 and 2022 planting seasons (the “Florida Contract”). Prior to the termination of the Agreement with the Consultant, as part of the Consultant’s services, Consultant introduced us to the FDACS, which introduction resulted in us signing the Florida Contract. Since the Consultant was instrumental in identifying and introducing us to FDACS prior to termination of the Agreement, the execution of the Florida Contract is a milestone achieved by the Consultant under the terms of the Agreement. As a result of the achievement of that milestone, the Company will issue 250,000 of the shares of Common Stock to the Consultant. The Consultant may be entitled to receive up to another 750,000 shares of Common Stock, which will be contingent upon further milestones to be achieved under the Florida Contract.

Evaluation of Disclosure and Control Procedures

 

The Company’s Chief Executive Officer and the Company’s Chief Financial Officer evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of September 30, 2019 and concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective. The term disclosure controls and procedures means controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is accumulated, recorded, processed, summarized 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 to be reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining an adequate system of internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act. The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”).

 

Because of its inherent limitations, a system of internal control over financial reporting can provide only reasonable assurance of such reliability and may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projection of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods is subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

Management has conducted, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, an assessment of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of September 30, 2019. Management’s assessment of internal control over financial reporting used the criteria set forth in SEC Release 33-8810 based on the framework established by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) in Internal Control over Financial Reporting — Guidance for Smaller Public Companies. Based on this evaluation, Management concluded that our system of internal control over financial reporting was effective as of September 30, 2019, based on these criteria.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rules 13a-15(t) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, during the three months ended September 30, 2019 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II — OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

From time to time, we may become involved in lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business. However, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm our business. Although we currently maintain liability insurance coverage intended to cover professional liability and certain other claims, we cannot assure that our insurance coverage will be adequate to cover liabilities arising out of claims asserted against us in the future where the outcomes of such claims are unfavorable to us. Liabilities in excess of our insurance coverage, including coverage for professional liability and certain other claims, could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
