Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

1. Basis of Presentation and Business Condition

 

a) Interim Financial Information

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information pursuant to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments and reclassifications considered necessary in order to make the financial statements not misleading and for a fair and comparable presentation have been included and are of a normal recurring nature. Operating results for the three months period ended March 31, 2024 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2024. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 filed with the SEC on March 28, 2024.

 

Worksport Ltd. (together with its subsidiaries, the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on April 2, 2003 under the name Franchise Holdings International, Inc. (“FNHI”). In May 2020, FNHI changed its name to Worksport Ltd. During the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company completed a reverse acquisition transaction (the “Reverse Acquisition”) with TruXmart Ltd. (“TruXmart”). On May 2, 2018, TruXmart legally changed its name to Worksport Ltd. (“Worksport”). Worksport designs and distributes truck tonneau covers in Canada and the United States.

 

b) Statement of Compliance

 

The Company’s financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) as issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”).

 

c) Basis of Measurement

 

The Company’s financial statements have been prepared on the accrual basis.

 

d) Consolidation

 

The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements consolidate the accounts of the Company. All intercompany transactions, balances and unrealized gains or losses from intercompany transactions have been eliminated upon consolidation.

 

e) Functional and Reporting Currency

 

These condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in United States dollars (USD or US$). The functional currency of the Company and its subsidiaries are United States dollar. For purposes of preparing these condensed consolidated financial statements, transactions denominated in Canadian dollars (CAD or C$) were converted to United States dollars at the spot rate. Transaction gains and losses resulting from fluctuations in currency exchange rates on transactions denominated in currencies other than the functional currency are recognized as incurred in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of operations.

 

f) Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of condensed unaudited financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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 condensed interim financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

2. Going Concern

 

As of March 31, 2024, the Company had $3,536,980 in cash and cash equivalents. The Company has generated only limited revenues and has relied primarily upon capital generated from public and private offerings of its securities. Since the Company’s acquisition of Worksport in fiscal year 2014, it has never generated a profit. As of March 31, 2024, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $52,027,834.

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company had net losses of $3,714,657 (2023 - $3,523,270). As of March 31, 2024, the Company had working capital of $2,901,401 (December 31, 2023 – $1,956,894) and had an accumulated deficit of $52,027,834 (December 31, 2023 - $48,313,177). The Company has not generated profit from operations since inception and to date has relied on debt and equity financing for continued operations. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the ability to generate cash flows from operations and obtain equity and/or debt financing. The Company intends to continue funding operations through equity and debt financing arrangements, which may be insufficient to fund its capital expenditures, working capital and other cash requirements in the long term. There can be no assurance that the steps management is taking will be successful.

 

Despite the Company having mostly completed its purchasing of large manufacturing machinery, operational costs are expected to remain elevated and, thus, further decrease cash and cash equivalents. Concurrently, the Company intends to continue its ramp-up of manufacturing and increasing sales volumes in 2024, which should mitigate the effects of operational costs on cash and cash equivalents; this view is supported by the fact that the manufacturing facility of the Company was completed for initial production output in 2023 and has started to generate revenue in the third quarter of 2023.

 

The Company has successfully raised cash, and it is positioned to do so again if deemed necessary or strategically advantageous. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company, through its Reg-A public offering, private placement offering, underwritten public offering, and exercises of warrants, raised an aggregate of approximately $32,500,000. On September 30, 2022, the Company filed a shelf registration statement on Form S-3, which was declared effective by the SEC on October 13, 2022, allowing the Company to issue up to $30,000,000 of common stock and prospectus supplement covering the offering, issuance and sale of up to $13,000,000 of common stock that may be issued and sold under an At The Market Offering Agreement dated September 30, 2022 (“ATM Agreement”), with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC, as the sales agent (“HCW”). Pursuant to the ATM Agreement, HCW is entitled to a commission equal to 3.0% of the gross sales price of the shares of common stock sold. As of March 31, 2024, the Company has sold and issued 604,048 shares of common stock in consideration for net proceeds of $780,356 under the ATM Agreement.

 

On November 2, 2023, the Company consummated a registered direct offering pursuant to which the Company issued 1,925,000 shares of common stock and 1,575,000 pre-funded warrants to an institutional investor for a total net proceeds of $4,261,542. Concurrently with the registered direct offering, the Company issued the same institutional investor 7,000,000 warrants in a private sale. The warrants are exercisable for 7,000,000 shares of common stock for $1.34 per share six months after issuance and until five and a half years from the issuance date, subject to beneficial ownership limitations as described in the warrants. The Company registered the 7,000,000 shares of common stock underlying the warrants on a Form S-1 (333-276241) which was declared effective by the SEC on December 29, 2023.

 

On March 20, 2024, the Company consummated a registered direct offering pursuant to which the Company issued 2,372,240 shares of common stock and 1,477,892 pre-funded warrants to the same institutional investor as in the Company’s registered direct offering on November 2, 2023, for a total net proceeds of $2,629,083. Concurrently with the registered direct offering, the Company issued the institutional investor 7,700,264 warrants in a private sale. The warrants are exercisable for 7,700,264 shares of common stock for $0.74 per share six months after issuance until five and a half years from the issuance date, subject to beneficial ownership limitations as described in the warrants. The Company registered the 7,700,264 shares of common stock underlying the warrants on a Form S-1 (333-278461) which was declared effective by the SEC on April 8, 2024.

 

To date, the Company’s principal sources of liquidity consist of net proceeds from public and private securities offerings and cash exercises of outstanding warrants. Management is focused on transitioning towards revenue as its principal source of liquidity by growing existing product offerings as well as the Company’s customer base. The Company cannot give assurance that it can increase its cash balances or limit its cash consumption and thus maintain sufficient cash balances for planned operations or future business developments. Future business development and demands may lead to cash utilization at levels greater than recently experienced. The Company may need to raise additional capital in the future. However, the Company cannot provide assurances it will be able to raise additional capital on acceptable terms, or at all.

The Company has evaluated whether there are conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date the financial statements are issued. Still, certain factors indicate the existence of a material uncertainty that cast substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. These adjustments could be material.

The Company has accounted for its leases upon adoption of ASC 842 whereby it recognizes a lease liability and a right-of-use asset at the date of initial application beginning January 1, 2019. The lease liability is measured at the present value of the remaining lease payments, discounted using the Company’s incremental borrowing rate of 10%. The Company has measured the right-of-use asset at an initial amount equal to the lease liability.

12. Loan payable

 

a)On May 4, 2022, the Company, as the guarantor, and Worksport New York Operations Corporation (“Worksport New York”), as the borrower (the “Borrower”) entered into a secured loan agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with an external banking entity (the “Lender”) relating to the Company’s purchase of a 152,847 square-foot building situated on two parcels of land aggregating 18 acres of land located in West Seneca, New York (collectively, the “Property”) for a total purchase price of $8,150,000 on May 6, 2022. Under the terms of the Loan Agreement, the Borrower procured a total principal sum of $5,300,000, bearing an interest rate of the prime rate plus 2.25% annually, for the Company’s purchase of the Property and covering associated costs. To ensure the loan’s servicing over its duration, the Company allocated $667,409 into a specially designated account. By the close of March 31, 2024, this account’s balance had changed to $558,358, which is recorded under cash and cash equivalents in the accompanying financial statements. As of March 31, 2024, the outstanding principal and the accrued interest was an aggregate of $5,347,479. This outstanding balance and accrued interest are due on August 10, 2024.   The Company disclosed the material terms of the Loan Agreement in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 11, 2022.
   
  

On February 4, 2024, the Company and Worksport New York entered into a Forbearance Agreement with the Lender in connection with the Loan Agreement. Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement, the Lender agreed to forbear from commencing an action for judgement of foreclosure and sale, seeking an appointment of a receiver or collecting default accrued interest under the Loan until the occurrence of a Termination Event (as defined in the Forbearance Agreement) and the Company and Worksport waived all defenses in connection with the Worksport New York failure to maintain 1.20 to 1.0 debt service coverage ratio of net operating income to debt service under the Loan for each of the trailing twelve (12) months ended December 31, 2023, and the indirect sale of equity securities of Worksport New York as a result of the Company’s sale equity securities in November 2023 (the “Existing Defaults”). Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement, the definition of “Permitted Transfers” in the Loan Agreement was amended to include the transfer of direct or indirect interest in the Company solely through a stock sale for capital raising purposes, subject to certain conditions, including no occurrence of an Events of Default (other than the Existing Defaults), change in ownership or control of the Company, no new 10% or greater owners, and no involvement of Sanctioned Persons. The Borrower must provide prior notice to Lender and satisfactory reporting of the results of the capital raise.

 

On May 14, 2024, the Company successfully negotiated an extension of the maturity date for its $5.3 million Loan Agreement (Note 12) that was originally due on May 20th, 2024. The Company entered into an agreement with the lender to extend the maturity date to August 10th, 2024. See “Note 17 Subsequent Events.”

 

b)During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company received $28,387 ($40,000 CAD) interest-free from the Government of Canada as part of the COVID-19 small business relief program. Repaying the balance of the loan on or before December 31, 2023 resulted in loan forgiveness of 25 percent (25%). As of September 30, 2022, the Company made the repayment of $28,387 ($40,000 CAD) and, as of February 14, 2023, received the forgiven debt of $7,493 ($10,000 CAD). As at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, there are no amounts owing, and the loan has been fully settled.

 

13. Loss per Share

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2024, loss per share is $0.18 (basic and diluted) compared to that of the three months ended March 31, 2023, of $0.21 (basic and diluted) using the weighted average number of shares of 21,188,070 (basic and diluted) and 17,159,376 (basic and diluted), respectively.

 

There are 299,000,000 shares authorized with 24,100,201 and 17,159,376 shares issued and outstanding, as at March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. The computation of loss per share is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period in accordance with ASC Topic No. 260, “Earnings Per Share.” Shares underlying the Company’s outstanding warrants and convertible promissory notes were excluded due to the anti-dilutive effect they would have on the computation. As of March 31, 2024, the Company has 20,118,080 warrants convertible to 20,418,080 common shares, 357,018 restricted stock to be issued, and 5,132,656 stock options exercisable for 5,132,656 common shares for a total underlying common shares of 25,907,754.

15. Stock Options and Performance Share Units

 

Under the Company’s 2015, 2021 and 2022 Equity Incentive Plans, the number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the option plan shall not exceed 10% of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of the Company, have a maximum term of 10 years, and vest at the discretion of the Board of Directors.

 

All equity-settled, share-based payments are ultimately recognized as an expense in the statement of operations with a corresponding credit to “Additional Paid in Capital.” If vesting periods or other non-market vesting conditions apply, the expense is allocated over the vesting period, based on the best available estimate of the number of share options expected to vest. Estimates are subsequently revised if there is any indication that the number of share options expected to vest differs from previous estimates. Any cumulative adjustment prior to vesting is recognized in the current period. No adjustment is made to any expense recognized in prior periods if share options ultimately exercised are different than that estimated on vesting.

The grant, following a strategic low-cost power award from New York Power Authority (NYPA) in April 2024, signifies additional state-level investment in the Company’s expanding operations. With growth exceeding NY State’s forecasts, the Company expects to create up to or over 280 new jobs from 2025 to 2030 and if achieved will receive cash benefits for the creation of these jobs, amounting to $2.8 million received over the next 10 years.
   
 On May 14, 2024, the Company and Worksport New York Operations Corporation (“Worksport New York”) entered into an Omnibus Amendment of Loan Documents (the “Loan Amendment”) with Northeast Bank (the “Lender”) in connection with that certain secured loan agreement, dated May 4, 2022 (the “Loan Agreement”), by and among the Company, as the guarantor (the “Guarantor”), Worksport New York, as the borrower (the “Borrower”), and the Lender in connection with the Company’s purchase of its 152,847 square foot facility and 18 acres of land in West Seneca, New York on May 6, 2022 for a total purchase price of $8,150,000. Pursuant to the Loan Amendment, effective as of May 10, 2024, the Lender extended the initial maturity date of the Loan from May 10, 2024 to August 10, 2024 (the “Extended Maturity Date”). The Company also agreed to pay the Lender an extension fee of $106,000 (the “Extension Fee”) which was deemed fully earned as of the date of the Loan Amendment. However, the Lender agreed to postpone payment of the Extension Fee until the occurrence of (i) the Loan not being repaid in full by or on the Extended Maturity Date; or (ii) Loan being accelerated following an Event of Default or Termination Date (as defined in the Forbearance Agreement). If the Loan is repaid in full on or prior to the Extended Maturity Date, the Lender has agreed to waive the Extension Fee. In addition to the Extension Fee, the Company agreed to pay the Lender an exit fee of $106,000 (the “Exit Fee”) in the event the Loan is not repaid in full on or prior to the Extended Maturity Date or if the Loan has been accelerated following an Event of Default or in connection with a Termination Event (as defined in the Forbearance Agreement). If the Loan is repaid in full on or prior to the Extended Maturity Date (and not as a result of an acceleration following a Termination Event), the Company will not be required to pay the Exit Fee.

Forward-looking statements provide current expectations of future events based on certain assumptions and include any statement that does not directly relate to any historical or current fact. Forward-looking statements can also be identified by words such as “future,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “predicts,” “will,” “would,” “could,” “can,” “may,” and similar terms. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results may differ significantly from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements in this Form 10-Q are made based on current expectations, forecasts, estimates and assumptions, and involve risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause results or events to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. In evaluating these statements, various factors, uncertainties, and risks should be specifically considered that could affect future results or operations. These factors, uncertainties and risks may cause actual results to differ materially from any forward-looking statement set forth in this Form 10-Q. These risks and uncertainties described and other information contained in the reports filed with or furnished to the SEC should be carefully considered before making any investment decision with respect to the Company’s securities. The Company assumes no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements for any reason, except as required by law.

 

Unless otherwise stated, all information presented herein is based on the Company’s fiscal calendar, and references to particular years, quarters, months or periods refer to the Company’s fiscal years ended December 31st and the associated quarters, months and periods of those fiscal years. Each of the terms “Company” and “Worksport” as used herein refers collectively to Worksport Ltd. and its subsidiaries, unless otherwise stated.

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in Part I, Item 1 of this Form 10-Q.

 

Overview

 

Worksport Ltd., through its subsidiaries, designs, develops, manufactures, and owns the Intellectual Property on a portfolio of tonneau cover, solar integration, portable power station, and NP (Non-Parasitic), Hydrogen-based green energy products and solutions for the automotive aftermarket accessories, power storage, residential heating, and electric vehicle-charging industries. We seek to provide consumers with next-generation automotive aftermarket accessories while capitalizing on growing consumer interest in clean energy solutions and power grid independence.

 

Rising Popularity of Electric Vehicles

 

Electric Vehicles (EVs) have been exponentially increasing in consumer interest, whether that interest takes the form of vehicle pre-orders, sales, or investments. As we begin marketing our Worksport SOLIS and COR, we plan to market the SOLIS as a must-have accessory for electric light duty vehicle owners while simultaneously riding the coattails of EV popularity to promote our other products (COR and conventional tonneau covers) to the very large population of Americans that have an interest in EVs without the funds to purchase them. Further, participating in the EV space allows us to target consumers with an interest in cutting-edge technologies – a great market in which to promote our COR.

 

Regulatory Environment Favoring Electric Vehicles

 

The Build Back Better Bill was a strong indication of upcoming and favorable USA regulations. Many regulations that improve North America’s EV charging infrastructure or provide grants to businesses operating in the EV space will benefit us. While we are primarily focused on the light duty vehicle market, our energy products are particularly useful for electric light duty pickup trucks and, therefore, are positioned to benefit greatly from any bill that increases the prevalence of such vehicles.

 

Limited Competitive Landscape

 

Our conventional tonneau covers are engineered for enhanced user experience and resistance to wear-and-tear, making them strong and competitive products in an otherwise consolidated and saturated market. The Worksport COR, however, operates in a much wider yet unsaturated market. The global Portable Power Station market is quickly growing, and the competitive landscape is far from consolidated. The solar tonneau cover market is in its infancy, and it’s a market in which we have first-mover advantage. To ensure we do not fall behind future competitors, we are highly focused on protecting our intellectual property both domestically and abroad.

Business Developments

 

The following highlights recent material developments in our business in the three months ended March 31, 2024:

 

On March 28, 2024, we announced receipt of solar panels required to begin production of the highly anticipated SOLIS Solar Tonneau Cover. This milestone marks a significant step forward, allowing the Company to begin initial production of the SOLIS Solar Tonneau Cover.
   
 On February 23, 2024, we announced a new arrangement with Dix Performance North, Canada’s leading wholesaler of aftermarket car and truck products, for Dix to include our tonneau covers in their catalog. This strategic alliance is expected to make the Company’s range of covers widely available throughout Canada, accelerate our growth, and contribute to significant sales and revenue increases.
   
 On February 7, 2024, we announced a collaboration with Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) pursuant to which we will use Infineon’s GaN power semiconductors GS-065-060-5-B-A in the converters for our portable power stations to increase efficiency and power density.
   
 On January 3, 2024, we announced our strategic arrangement with NeuronicWorks Inc., a Toronto-based high-tech custom electronic product development and manufacturing company, to manufacture and assemble our COR battery system in preparation for the system’s anticipated Alpha release.

 

Key Factors Affecting our Performance

 

As a result of a number of factors, our historical results of operations may not be comparable to our results of operations in future periods, and our results of operations may not be directly comparable from period to period. Set forth below is a brief discussion of the key factors impacting our results of operations.

 

COVID-19

 

The outbreak of the coronavirus, specifically identified as “COVID-19,” resulted in governments worldwide enacting emergency measures to combat the spread of the virus. These measures, which included the implementation of travel bans, self-imposed quarantine periods, and social distancing, have caused material disruption to businesses globally, resulting in an economic slowdown. Global equity markets experienced significant volatility and weakness. Governments and central banks have reacted with significant monetary and fiscal interventions designed to stabilize economic conditions – many of which have deeply impacted capital markets.

 

As a safety precaution, we created a policy such that any personnel exposed to an infectious disease or virus was not to report to the office until the completion of a variable length quarantine. While this resulted in fewer personnel working in our offices or labs on a given day, it likely prevented further contamination and sick leave. We do not believe this policy has impacted revenue nor timelines towards upcoming product launches; however, supply chain issues caused by COVID-19 did result in higher cost of goods sold during 2021 and 2022. While freight costs have since returned to pre-COVID-19 levels, 2021 freight costs were, in some cases, more than four times higher than those shortly before COVID-19.

 

The supply chain for certain raw materials has been disproportionately, negatively impacted when compared to supply chains of other raw materials. The supply chain for power electronics, specifically, is still facing supply chain issues as a result of COVID-19, for the globe faced a simultaneous supply shock and heightened demand for these goods – increasing the prices for such raw materials while simultaneously slowing suppliers’ order fulfillments. Further, due to such shortages, many suppliers of power electronics have focused their attention on large customers such as those more directly aligned within the electric vehicle supply chain as compared to companies on the outskirts of this supply chain such as Worksport. This particular result of COVID-19 primarily affects the sourcing of components for the Worksport COR. In order to mitigate these supply chain issues, we have invested more resources into sourcing power electronics in the interest of finding reliable suppliers with manageable lead times and competitive pricing.

The response of many governments to the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in higher interest rates and destabilized equity markets – particularly among micro- or low-capitalization companies – effectively increasing the cost of and decreasing easy access to capital, which could negatively impact our short-term and long-term liquidity. These factors, combined with the consequences of possible future waves of the disease, could have a material impact on our liquidity, capital resources, operations, and business as well as those of the third parties on which we rely. The management and Board are constantly monitoring this situation to minimize potential losses.

 

Climate Change

 

Climate change threatens to cause many foreseeable as well as unforeseeable ramifications. In cautious preparation for those that are foreseeable, we have strategically begun domestic manufacturing operations in Western New York – an economically growing region not immediately threatened by climate change to the same extent as other regions and possibly one that may benefit from future population migrations within the United States of America. Further, we intend to lower our own carbon footprint by investing in energy-saving measures in our factory in West Seneca, NY. Considering climate change may also exacerbate geopolitical tensions, we are working to diversify our supply chain and lower our reliance on any particular region or country for raw materials in order to lower our exposure to climate change-induced economic or political instability.

 

We believe our Worksport SOLIS and Worksport COR products will be received positively by the public for their resilience to, and even increased utility as a result of, Climate Change. However, we acknowledge the potentially negative environmental impacts of poor battery recycling and increasing demand for precious metals. We are actively researching ways to lower such environmental impacts.

 

Inflation

 

Prices of certain commodity products, including raw materials, are historically volatile and are subject to fluctuations arising from changes in domestic and international supply and demand, labor costs, competition, market speculation, government regulations, trade restrictions and tariffs. Increasing prices of the component materials for parts of our goods may impact the availability, quality and price of our products as suppliers search for alternatives to existing materials and increase the prices they charge. Our suppliers may also fail to provide consistent quality of product as they may substitute lower cost materials to maintain pricing levels. Rapid and significant changes in commodity prices may negatively affect our profit margins, and it may be difficult to mitigate worsened margins through customer pricing actions and cost reduction initiatives.

 

Such an inflationary environment also increases our direct cost of raw goods or processed goods for our OEM manufacturing as well as indirect costs such as overhead and rent. Due to these present and forecasted price increases and the temporary increases in ocean freight and container handling costs faced in recent periods, Worksport factors in all costs when assessing proper pricing of its goods for sale.

 

Additionally, as central banks and the U.S. Federal Reserve increase interest rates to combat global inflation, the cost of debt financing increases. While we currently do not have material debt other than our $5.3 million mortgage on our West Seneca facility, our mortgage’s variable rate increases and decreases along with interest rates, which resulted in an increase of monthly premiums throughout 2022 and 2023. We are still susceptible to variable monthly mortgage interest costs as a result of changes in interest rates. We continue to explore debt financing options at reasonable interest rates in order to strengthen our cash position.

Rising interest rates have also resulted in a shift in institutional holdings away from micro-cap equities, which has negatively influenced our stock’s trading volume. We continue to forge relationships with institutional investors and analysts in order to maintain a healthy trading volume.

 

Gasoline Prices and Supply Chain Issues

 

We faced significantly higher ocean freight, trucking, and container handling costs as well as last mile delivery costs in 2021 and 2022 than we did in previous years – all of which have increased our products’ landed costs. Higher oil and gasoline prices further increased these costs, and while such prices have come down from their 2022 highs, we continue to closely monitor gasoline and shipping costs. While the Freight Rate Index has significantly increased since late 2023 as a result of Houthi attacks against cargo ships in the Red Sea and the concurrent decline in activity across the Panama Canal, the shipping routes used by the Company have not faced dramatic price hikes. Regardless, the Company is closely monitoring international shipping costs.

 

Our transition towards domestic manufacturing and assembly is anticipated to largely offset these higher costs, as we believe we will be less exposed to higher international shipping costs. We are also identifying North American suppliers of our products’ components and will prioritize transport by rail when possible to avoid high trucking costs.

 

Geopolitical Conditions

 

In February 2022, Russia initiated significant military action against Ukraine. In response, the U.S. and certain other countries imposed significant sanctions and export controls against Russia, Belarus and certain individuals and entities connected to Russian or Belarusian political, business, and financial organizations, and the U.S. and certain other countries could impose further sanctions, trade restrictions, and other retaliatory actions should the conflict continue or worsen. It is not possible to predict the broader consequences of these conflicts, including related geopolitical tensions, and the measures and retaliatory actions taken by the U.S. and other countries in respect thereof as well as whether any counter measures or retaliatory actions in response, including, for example, potential cyberattacks or the disruption of energy exports, are likely to cause regional instability and geopolitical shifts, which could materially adversely affect global trade, currency exchange rates, regional economies and the global economy. These situations remain uncertain, and while it is difficult to predict the impact of any of the foregoing, the conflicts and actions taken in response to these conflicts could increase our costs, reduce our sales and earnings, impair our ability to raise additional capital when needed on acceptable terms, if at all, or otherwise adversely affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations.

 

While we do not have any direct operations or significant sales in the Middle East, geopolitical tensions and ongoing conflicts in the region, particularly between Israel and Hamas, may lead to global economic instability and fluctuating energy prices that could materially affect our business. It is not possible to predict the broader consequences of the Israel-Hamas war, including related geopolitical tensions, and the measures and actions taken by other countries in respect thereof, which could materially adversely affect global trade, currency exchange rates, regional economies and the global economy. While it is difficult to predict the impact of any of the foregoing, the Israel-Hamas war may increase our costs, disrupt our supply chain, reduce our sales and earnings, impair our ability to raise additional capital when needed on acceptable terms, if at all, or otherwise adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Foreign Currencies

We are subject to foreign exchange risk as we manufacture certain products and components in China, market extensively in both Canadian and U.S. markets, employ people residing in both the U.S. and Canada and, to date, have raised funds in Canadian Dollars. Meanwhile, we report results of operations in U.S. Dollars. Since our Canadian customers pay in Canadian Dollars, we are subject to gains and losses due to fluctuations in the USD relative to the Canadian Dollar. Our manufacturers in China are paid in USD to better avoid the relatively greater fluctuation of the Chinese Yuan. To the extent the U.S. dollar strengthens against any of these foreign currencies, the translation of these foreign currencies denominated transactions results in reduced revenue, operating expenses and net income for our operations.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Three Months Ended March 31, 2024 compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2023

 

Revenue

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2024, revenues from our entire line of products was $512,637, as compared to $31,925 for the three months ended March 31, 2023. Year-over-year sales increased by approximately 1,506%. For the three months ended March 31, 2024, revenue generated in Canada was $20,007, as compared to $5,522 for the same period in 2023. For the three months ended March 31, 2024, revenue generated in the United States was $492,630, compared to $26,403 for the same period in 2023, an increase of 1,766%.

 

19

 

 

Revenue increased during the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to the same period the prior year due to increased sales of soft tonneau covers to a private label partner. The Company continues to focus on establishing new business-to-consumer and business-to-business sales channels while strengthening the support of those channels to increase customer satisfaction and enable high product turnover. For business-to-consumer channels, we have configured our product offerings in a manner conducive with cost-effective marketing, allowing us to securely invest in marketing during 2024. For business-to-business channels, we have created all necessary marketing/sales materials and policies, and we are now actively presenting our product offerings to various dealers, jobbers, and retailers across the United States and Canada. We intend to gradually increase output capacity through refined production processes and increased personnel.

 

Sales from online retailers of our products increased from $26,434 during the three months ended March 31, 2023, to $45,886 during the three months ended March 31, 2024. Online retailers accounted for 5% of total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to 83% for the three months ended March 31, 2023. Distributor sales decreased for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared with the three months ended March 31, 2023, with sales of $0 and $5,491, respectively. Private label sales increased from $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2023, to $466,751 for the three months ended March 31, 2024. Private label sales accounted for 91% of total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2024. We expect to continue to grow our fields of business as we develop unique products with enhanced utility to offer to other prospective clients in the U.S. and Canadian markets.

 

Currently, we work closely with two distributors in Canada, and we are close to setting up a distribution network within the United States. This does not include multiple independent online retailers. We currently support a network of dealers and distributors, and we intend to continue expanding our business and online sales channels in 2024.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales increased by 2,305%, from $19,757 for the three months ended March 31, 2023, to $475,181 for the three months ended March 31, 2024. Our cost of sales, as a percentage of sales, was approximately 93% and 62% for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. The increase in the cost of sales as a percentage of sales was primarily due to increased sales to private labels at a lower agreed upon sales price compared to online retail sales. We consistently secure a 20% gross margin on soft covers sold to private labels, as these soft covers are drop shipped from our Chinese suppliers at a fixed cost. However, our margins on domestically manufactured hard covers is dependent on the cost of raw materials, which fluctuates, as well as overhead, which is expected to decrease in future quarters as we realize manufacturing efficiencies and allocate more existing human capital and machinery resources away from design engineering and testing towards production. Our overhead per domestic unit was particularly high during the three months ended March 31, 2024 due to this allocation of resources. 

 

We provide our distributors and online retailers an “all-in” wholesale price. This includes any import duty charges, taxes, and shipping charges. Discounts are applied if the distributor or retailer chooses to use their own shipping process. Certain exceptions apply on rare occasions where product is shipped outside the contiguous United Sates or from the United States to Canada. Volume discounts are offered to certain high-volume customers, and we also offer a “dock price” or “pickup program” whereby clients are able to pick up product directly from our stocking warehouse.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Operating expenses increased for the three months ended March 31, 2024 by $134,806, from $3,542,116 for the three months ended March 31, 2023 to $3,676,922, due to the following factors:

 

  General and administrative expenses increased by $544,706, from $2,129,612 in 2023 to $2,674,318 in 2024. The increase was related to increased research and development activities, increased employment of production personnel including engineers, machine operators, and assembly people, and increases in wages and salaries as we seek to expand our operations and further develop our products.
  Sales and marketing expenses decreased by $477,574, from $544,351 for 2023 to $66,777 for 2024. The decrease in sales and marketing is primarily attributable to the completion of several marketing agreements and lower cost of in-house marketing campaigns to create brand and product awareness.
  Professional fees, which include accounting, legal, and consulting fees, increased from $868,611 in 2023 to $943,778 in 2024. The increase in professional fees was due primarily to increased expenditure related to stock options and restricted stock compensation with consultants and employees.
  We realized a gain on foreign exchange of $7,951 during 2024, compared to a gain on foreign exchange of $458 for the prior period due to conversions between CAD and USD.

Other Income and Expenses

 

We reported other expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2024 of $75,191, compared to a gain of $6,678 for three months ended March 23, 2023. Other expenses can be attributed to increased interest expense partially offset by interest and rental income.

 

Net Loss

 

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was $3,714,657, compared to a net loss of $3,523,270 for the three months ended March 31, 2023 – an increase of 5%. The increase in the net loss can be attributed to the increase in various operating expenses as we focus on expanding our operations, research and development, manufacturing, and supply chain.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources; Going Concern

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company had a net loss of $3,714,657 (2023 - $3,523,270). As of March 31, 2024, the Company has working capital of $2,901,401 (December 31, 2023 - $1,956,894) and had an accumulated deficit of $52,027,834 (December 31, 2023 - $48,313,177). The Company has not generated profit from operations since inception and to date has relied on debt and equity financings for continued operations. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the ability to generate cash flows from operations and obtain equity and/or debt financing. The Company intends to continue funding operations through equity and debt financing arrangements, which may be insufficient to fund its capital expenditures, working capital and other cash requirements in the long term. There can be no assurance that the steps management is taking will be successful.

 

Despite the Company having mostly completed its purchasing of large manufacturing machinery, operational costs are expected to remain elevated and, thus, further decrease cash and cash equivalents. Concurrently, the Company intends to continue its ramp-up of manufacturing and increasing sales volumes in 2024, which should mitigate the effects of operational costs on cash and cash equivalents; this view is supported by the fact that the manufacturing facility of the Company was completed for initial production output in 2023 and has started to generate revenue in the third quarter of 2023.

 

The Company has successfully raised cash, and it is positioned to do so again if deemed necessary or strategically advantageous. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company, through its Reg-A public offering, private placement offering, underwritten public offering, and exercises of warrants, raised an aggregate of approximately $32,500,000. On September 30, 2022, the Company filed a shelf registration statement on Form S-3, which was declared effective by the SEC on October 13, 2022, allowing the Company to issue up to $30,000,000 of common stock and prospectus supplement covering the offering, issuance and sale of up to $13,000,000 of common stock that may be issued and sold under an At The Market Offering Agreement dated September 30, 2022 (“ATM Agreement”), with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC, as the sales agent (“HCW”). Pursuant to the ATM Agreement, HCW is entitled to a commission equal to 3.0% of the gross sales price of the shares of common stock sold. As of March 31, 2024, the Company has sold and issued 604,048 shares of common stock in consideration for net proceeds of $780,356 under the ATM Agreement.

 

On November 2, 2023, the Company consummated a registered direct offering pursuant to which it sold 1,925,000 shares of common stock and 1,575,000 pre-funded warrants to an institutional investor for a total net proceeds of $4,261,542. Concurrently with the registered direct offering, the Company issued the same institutional investor 7,000,000 warrants in a private sale. The warrants are exercisable for 7,000,000 shares of common stock for $1.34 per share six months after issuance until five and a half years from the issuance date, subject to beneficial ownership limitations as described in the warrants. The Company registered the 7,000,000 shares of common stock underlying the warrants on a Form S-1 (333-276241) which was declared effective by the SEC on December 29, 2023.

 

21

 

 

On March 20, 2024, the Company consummated a registered direct offering pursuant to which it sold 2,372,240 shares of common stock and 1,477,892 pre-funded warrants to the same institutional investor as in the Company’s registered direct offering on November 2, 2023, for a total net proceeds of $2,629,083. Concurrently with the registered direct offering, the Company issued  the institutional investor 7,700,264 warrants in a private sale. The warrants are exercisable for 7,700,264 shares of common stock for $0.74 per share six months after issuance until five and a half years from the issuance date, subject to beneficial ownership limitations contained in the warrants. The Company registered the 7,700,264 shares of common stock underlying the warrants on a Form S-1 (333-278461) which was declared effective by the SEC on April 8, 2024.

 

As disclosed in the footnotes to our financial statements, on May 14, 2024, the Company and Worksport New York Operations Corporation (“Worksport New York”) entered into an Omnibus Amendment of Loan Documents (the “Loan Amendment”) with Northeast Bank (the “Lender”). This amendment pertains to the secured loan agreement dated May 4, 2022, which was originally used to finance the purchase of our facility and land in West Seneca, New York. Effective as of May 10, 2024, the Lender extended the maturity date of the loan from May 10, 2024, to August 10, 2024. This extension alleviates immediate cash flow pressures by postponing the loan repayment, allowing us to manage our resources more effectively and focus on other operational needs. As part of the Loan Amendment, we agreed to pay the Lender an extension fee of $106,000. This fee is deemed fully earned but will be waived if the loan is repaid in full on or before the new maturity date. If the loan is not repaid by the extended maturity date or is accelerated due to default, the fee will become payable. Additionally, we agreed to an exit fee of $106,000 under similar conditions. This fee will be waived if the loan is repaid on or before the new maturity date without acceleration. This loan extension demonstrates our ability to negotiate favorable terms with our creditors and underscores our commitment to maintaining strong liquidity. This strategic decision supports our long-term growth and helps us navigate the current economic and interest rate environment more effectively. The details of the Loan Amendment have been filed as an exhibit to this report and are incorporated by reference herein.

 

To date, the Company’s principal sources of liquidity consist of net proceeds from public and private securities offerings and cash exercises of outstanding warrants. Management is focused on transitioning towards revenue as its principal source of liquidity by growing existing product offerings as well as the Company’s customer base. The Company cannot give assurance that it can increase its cash balances or limit its cash consumption and thus maintain sufficient cash balances for planned operations or future business developments. Future business development and demands may lead to cash utilization at levels greater than recently experienced. The Company may need to raise additional capital in the future. However, the Company cannot provide assurances it will be able to raise additional capital on acceptable terms, or at all.

 

The Company has evaluated whether there are conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date the financial statements are issued. Still, certain factors indicate the existence of a material uncertainty that cast substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. These adjustments could be material.

 

Cash Flow Activities

 

Cash increased from $3,365,778 at December 31, 2023, to $3,536,980 at March 31, 2024 – an increase of $171,202 or 5%. The increase was primarily due to the closing of sale of shares during the three months ended March 31, 2024, raising approximately $3,200,000.

 

As of March 31, 2024, we had current assets of $10,744,959 (December 31, 2023 - $9,123,506) and current liabilities of $7,843,558 (December 31, 2023 – $7,166,612). As of March 31, 2024, we had working capital of $2,901,401 (December 31, 2023 – $1,956,894) and an accumulated deficit of $52,027,834 (December 31, 2023 - $48,313,177).

 

Operating Activities

 

Net cash used by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was $2,794,604, compared to $2,934,410 in the prior period, primarily driven by a larger net loss during the three months ended March 31, 2024, and partially offset by the issuance of shares, stock options, and warrants for services.

 

Accounts receivable decreased at March 31, 2024 by $306,778 and increased by $38,013 in the prior period. The decrease in accounts receivable was due to the collection of accounts receivable from a private label partner.

 

Inventory increased at March 31, 2024 by $2,908,354, and at March 31, 2023 by $257,423, as a result of our stockpiling components for production as well as finished goods in anticipation of the launch of targeted sales campaigns expected to drive significant sales volumes in our business to consumer department. Prepaid expenses decreased by $1,155,090 at March 31, 2024, and increased by $742,590 at March 31, 2023 due to deposits used and made by us for the purchase of manufacturing equipment and inventory, respectively.

 

Accounts payable and accrued liabilities increased at March 31, 2024 by $810,688 compared to an decrease of $6,799 in the prior period.

 

Investing Activities

 

Net cash used in investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was $212,969 compared to $1,153,229 in the prior period. The decrease in investing activities was primarily attributable to higher capital expenditure on various manufacturing equipment in 2023.

 

22

 

 

Financing Activities

 

Net cash generated by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was $3,178,775 compared to net cash used from financing activities of $43,904 in the prior period.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

None.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our discussion and analysis of results of operations and financial condition are based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We evaluate our estimates on an ongoing basis, including those related to provisions for uncollectible accounts receivable, inventories, valuation of intangible assets and contingencies and litigation. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

The accounting policies that we follow are set forth in Note 2 to our financial statements as included in the Form 10-K filed on March 27, 2024. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

Not Applicable.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Based upon that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that, as of the end of the quarter covered in this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the required time and is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent all error or fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, cannot provide absolute assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. The design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs.

 

To address the material weaknesses, we performed additional analysis and other post-closing procedures in an effort to ensure our consolidated financial statements included in our periodic reports filed with the SEC are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Management believes that the financial statements included in this report fairly present in all material respects our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

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

 

PART II OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

From time to time, we are involved in lawsuits, claims, investigations, and proceedings, including pending opposition proceedings involving patents that arise in the ordinary course of business. We are not presently a party to any material pending or threatened legal proceedings, nor do we have any knowledge of any such pending claims.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

In addition to the other information set forth in this Quarterly Report, you should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part I, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023, which could materially affect our business, financial condition, liquidity, or future results.

Item 5. Other Information

 

On February 4, 2024, the Company and Worksport New York Operations Corporation (“Worksport New York”) entered into a Forbearance Agreement with Northeast Bank (the “Lender”) in connection with that certain secured loan agreement, dated May 4, 2022 (the “Loan Agreement”), by and among the Company, as the guarantor (the “Guarantor”), Worksport New York, as the borrower (the “Borrower”), and the Lender in connection with the Company’s purchase of its 152,847 square foot facility and 18 acres of land in West Seneca, New York on May 6, 2022 for a total purchase price of $8,150,000. Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement, the Lender agreed to forbear from commencing an action for judgement of foreclosure and sale, seeking an appointment of a receiver or collecting default accrued interest under the Loan until the occurrence of a Termination Event (as defined in the Forbearance Agreement) and the Company and Worksport waived all defenses in connection with the Worksport New York failure to maintain 1.20 to 1.0 debt service coverage ratio of net operating income to debt service under the Loan for each of the trailing twelve (12) months ended December 31, 2023, and the indirect sale of equity securities of Worksport New York as a result of the Company’s sale equity securities in November 2023 (the “Existing Defaults”). Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement, the definition of “Permitted Transfers” in the Loan Agreement was amended to include the transfer of direct or indirect interest in the Company solely through a stock sale for capital raising purposes, subject to certain conditions, including no occurrence of an Events of Default (other than the Existing Defaults), change in ownership or control of the Company, no new 10% or greater owners, and no involvement of Sanctioned Persons. The Borrower must provide prior notice to Lender and satisfactory reporting of the results of the capital raise. The Forbearance Agreement has been filed as an exhibit to this report and is incorporated by reference herein.

 

Subsequent Events

 

On April 29, 2024, 13,300 stock options issued during the three months ended March 31, 2024 were forfeited with the termination of the employee.
   
 

16,667 RSU units were granted onto a Contractor on May 1, 2024 in consideration for services rendered in Q1 2024.

   
On May 2, 2024, the Company announced a collaboration with viral marketing firm Chief of Chaos to use the latter’s strategic insight to cultivate the story behind the Company’s current and upcoming products, aiming to replicate this success by enhancing the Company’s market presence and driving significant sales through innovative, targeted marketing campaigns.
   
 

On May 6, 2024, 1,477,892 pre-funded warrants issued during the three months ended March 31, 2024 were exercised for 1,477,892 shares of common stock for $148.

   
On May 8, 2024, the Company announced its receipt of a major grant from New York State Excelsior Jobs Program worth up to $2.8 million. The grant, following a strategic low-cost power award from New York Power Authority (NYPA) in April 2024, signifies additional state-level investment in the Company’s expanding operations. With growth exceeding NY State’s forecasts, the Company expects to create up to or over 280 new jobs from 2025 to 2030 and if achieved will receive cash benefits for the creation of these jobs, amounting to $2.8 million received over the next 10 years.
   
 On May 14, 2024, the Company successfully negotiated an extension of the maturity date for its $5.3 million Loan Agreement originally due on May 20th, 2024. The Company entered into an agreement with the lender to extend the maturity date to August 10th, 2024.
   
 On May 14, 2024, the Company and Worksport New York Operations Corporation (“Worksport New York”) entered into an Omnibus Amendment of Loan Documents (the “Loan Amendment”) with Northeast Bank (the “Lender”) in connection with that certain secured loan agreement, dated May 4, 2022 (the “Loan Agreement”), by and among the Company, as the guarantor (the “Guarantor”), Worksport New York, as the borrower (the “Borrower”), and the Lender in connection with the Company’s purchase of its 152,847 square foot facility and 18 acres of land in West Seneca, New York on May 6, 2022 for a total purchase price of $8,150,000. Pursuant to the Loan Amendment, effective as of May 10, 2024, the Lender extended the initial maturity date of the Loan from May 10, 2024 to August 10, 2024 (the “Extended Maturity Date”). The Company also agreed to pay the Lender an extension fee of $106,000 (the “Extension Fee”) which was deemed fully earned as of the date of the Loan Amendment. However, the Lender agreed to postpone payment of the Extension Fee until the occurrence of (i) the Loan not being repaid in full by or on the Extended Maturity Date; or (ii) Loan being accelerated following an Event of Default or Termination Date (as defined in the Forbearance Agreement). If the Loan is repaid in full on or prior to the Extended Maturity Date, the Lender has agreed to waive the Extension Fee. In addition to the Extension Fee, the Company agreed to pay the Lender an exit fee of $106,000 (the “Exit Fee”) in the event the Loan is not repaid in full on or prior to the Extended Maturity Date or if the Loan has been accelerated following an Event of Default or in connection with a Termination Event (as defined in the Forbearance Agreement). If the Loan is repaid in full on or prior to the Extended Maturity Date (and not as a result of an acceleration following a Termination Event), the Company will not be required to pay the Exit Fee. The Loan Amendment has been filed as an exhibit to this report and is incorporated by reference herein.
