NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1. Nature of Business

 

Throughout this report, the terms “our,” “we,” “us,” and the “Company” refer to LGBTQ Loyalty Holdings, Inc. (formerly LifeApps Brands Inc.), including its subsidiaries.

 

On January 25, 2019, we acquired LGBT Loyalty LLC, a New York limited liability company, with the goal of creating the first LGBTQ Loyalty Preference Index ETF (the “Index ETF”) to provide the LGBTQ community with the power to influence the allocation of capital within a financial Index ETF based upon LGBTQ consumer preferences. The Index ETF is intended to link the growing economic influence of the LGBTQ community and their allies with many of the top Fortune 500 companies that support and implement diversity, inclusion and equality policies within their organizations. The incorporation of diversity and inclusion in a company’s recruitment and human resource policies is becoming a key concern to investors as part of their growing focus on ESG allocations. Our data and analytics unequivocally reinforce that corporations that have embraced diversity and inclusion policies within their corporate culture perform at a higher level financially than their peers. This includes advancing a more invigorated workforce that attracts and retains the best talent. Innovation and agility have been identified as great benefits of diversity, and there is an increasing awareness of what has come to be known as ‘the power of difference’.

 

On October 30, 2019, through our wholly-owned subsidiary Loyalty Preference Index, Inc. (“LPI”) and our strategically aligned partnerships with crowd sourced data and analytic providers, we launched the LGBTQ100 ESG Index which integrates LGBTQ community survey data into the methodology for a benchmark listing of the nation’s highest financially performing large-cap publicly listed corporations that our respondents believe are most committed to advancing equality. LPI is the index provider for the LGBTQ + ESG100 ETF; LGBTQ Loyalty was the Sponsor for the prospectus that was filed by the licensed Fund Adviser ProcureAM, and was approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in early January 2020. The LGBTQ + ESG100 ETF (the “Fund”) seeks to track the investment results (before fees and expenses) of the LGBTQ100 ESG Index. The Fund earns management fees based on assets under management (“AUM”) and is expected to launch in the third quarter of 2020 on the NASDAQ.

 

Through our wholly owned subsidiary LifeApps, Inc., we are a licensed developer and publisher of apps for the Apple Apps Store for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini. We are also a licensed developer on both Google Play and Amazon Appstore for Android. We have distributed apps on all three platforms.

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with principles generally accepted in the United States (“US GAAP”), which contemplates our continuation as a going concern. We have incurred losses to date of $10,054,580 and have negative working capital of $3,461,248 as of March 31, 2020. To date we have funded our operations through advances from a related party, issuance of convertible debt, and the sale of our common stock. We intend to raise additional funding through third party equity or debt financing. There is no certainty that funding will be available as needed. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue operating as a going concern. Our ability to continue our operations as a going concern, realize the carrying value of our assets, and discharge our liabilities in the normal course of business is dependent upon our ability to raise capital sufficient to fund our commitments and ongoing losses, and ultimately generate profitable operations. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

We have prepared the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for interim financial reporting. These condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited and, in our opinion, include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments and accruals necessary for a fair presentation of our balance sheets, operating results, and cash flows for the periods presented. Operating results for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for fiscal year 2020. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP have been omitted in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and accompanying notes.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of LGBTQ Loyalty Holdings, Inc. and our wholly owned subsidiaries, LGBTQ Loyalty, LLC, LifeApps Inc., Sports One Group Inc. and Loyalty Preference Index, Inc. (“LPI”), which was formed on July 24, 2019. All material inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities in the balance sheets and revenues and expenses during the years reported. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

 7 
 

 

Reclassifications

 

The Company has reclassified certain previously reported amounts in its consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, prior year amounts were reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents. The Company generally maintains balances in various operating accounts at financial institutions that management believes to be of high credit quality, in amounts that may exceed federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses related to its cash and cash equivalents and does not believe that it is subject to unusual credit risk beyond the normal credit risk associated with commercial banking relationships. At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, all of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents were held at one accredited financial institution.

Fair Value Measurements

 

ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820”), provides a comprehensive framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures which are required about fair value measurements. Specifically, ASC 820 sets forth a definition of fair value and establishes a hierarchy prioritizing the inputs to valuation techniques, giving the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable value inputs. ASC 820 defines the hierarchy as follows:

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reported date. The types of assets and liabilities included in Level 1 are highly liquid and actively traded instruments with quoted prices, such as equities listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

 

Level 2 – Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets, but are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reported date. The types of assets and liabilities in Level 2 are typically either comparable to actively traded securities or contracts, or priced with models using highly observable inputs.

 

Level 3 – Significant inputs to pricing that are unobservable as of the reporting date. The types of assets and liabilities included in Level 3 are those with inputs requiring significant management judgment or estimation, such as complex and subjective models and forecasts used to determine the fair value of financial transmission rights and derivative liabilities.

 

Our financial instruments consist of cash, other current assets, accounts payables, accruals, and notes payable. The carrying values of these instruments approximate fair value because of the short-term maturities. The fair value of the Company’s convertible debentures and promissory notes approximates their carrying values as the underlying imputed interest rates approximates the estimated current market rate for similar instruments. The derivative is measured as a Level 3 instrument due to the various inputs which requires significant management judgment. Refer to Note 6 for detail.

 

The following table is a summary of our financial instruments measured at fair value:

 

   Fair Value Measurements 
   as of March 31, 2020: 
   Level 1   Level 2   Level 3   Total 
Liabilities:                
Derivative liability on convertible notes payable  $-   $-   $1,490,271   $1,490,271 
   $-   $-   $1,490,271   $1,490,271 

 

   Fair Value Measurements 
   as of December 31, 2019: 
   Level 1   Level 2   Level 3   Total 
Liabilities:                    
Derivative liability on convertible notes payable  $-   $-   $1,111,879   $1,111,879 
   $-   $-   $1,111,879   $1,111,879 

 

Other Receivables – Related Party

 

Other receivables represent amounts held in escrow at the Fund’s custodian. The Company expects to retrieve the funds upon commencement of the Fund’s operations.

 

Intangibles

 

Intangibles, which include website development costs, databases acquired, internet domain name costs, and customer lists, are being amortized over the expected useful lives which we estimate to be three to five years. In accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”), Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 350 Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (“ASC 350”), the costs to obtain and register internet domain names were capitalized.

 

 9 
 

 

Website and Software Development Costs

 

Website and software costs are eligible for capitalization under ASC 350-50 and ASC 985-20, Software-Costs of Software to be Sold, Leased or Marketed. These amounts are included in the consolidated balance sheets. Amortization of these costs will begin when the website becomes active.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment consist of furniture and equipment and are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment loss, if any. Depreciation is calculated on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets. The estimated useful lives used for financial statement purposes are 3 years.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company has financial instruments that are considered derivatives or contain embedded features subject to derivative accounting. Embedded derivatives are valued separately from the host instrument and are recognized as derivative liabilities in the Company’s balance sheet. The Company measures these instruments at their estimated fair value and recognizes changes in their estimated fair value in results of operations during the period of change. The Company has a sequencing policy regarding share settlement wherein instruments with a fixed conversion price or floor would be settled first, and interest payable in shares settle next. Thereafter, share settlement order is based on instrument issuance date – earlier dated instruments settling before later dated. The sequencing policy also considers contingently issuable additional shares, such as those issuable upon a stock split, to have an issuance date to coincide with the event giving rise to the additional shares. The policy includes all shares issuable pursuant to debenture and preferred stock instruments as well as shares issuable under service and employment contracts and interest on short term loans.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

ASC Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” establishes principles for reporting information about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from the entity’s contracts to provide goods or services to customers.

 

Revenues are recognized when control of the promised goods or services are transferred to a customer, in an amount that reflects the consideration that the Company expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. The Company applies the following five steps in order to determine the appropriate amount of revenue to be recognized as it fulfills its obligations under each of its agreements:

 

identify the contract with a customer;
   
identify the performance obligations in the contract;
   
determine the transaction price;
   
allocate the transaction price to performance obligations in the contract; and
   
recognize revenue as the performance obligation is satisfied.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation - Stock Compensation. Under the fair value recognition provisions of ASC 718, stock-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and is recognized as expense ratably over the requisite service period, which is generally the option vesting period. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to determine the fair value of stock options.

The Company measures compensation expense for its non-employee stock-based compensation under ASC 505, Equity. The fair value of the option or warrant issued or (committed to be issued) is used to measure the transaction, as this is more reliable than the fair value of the services received. The fair value is measured at the value of the Company’s common stock or stock award on the date that the commitment for performance by the counterparty has been reached or the counterparty’s performance is complete. The fair value of the equity instrument is charged directly to stock-based compensation expense and credited to additional paid-in capital.

 

Income Taxes

 

The provision for income taxes is determined in accordance with the provisions of ASC Topic 740, Accounting for Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax basis. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted income tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Any effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

ASC 740 prescribes a comprehensive model for how companies should recognize, measure, present, and disclose in their financial statements, uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken on a tax return. Under ASC 740, tax positions must initially be recognized in the financial statements when it is more likely than not the position will be sustained upon examination by the tax authorities. Such tax positions must initially and subsequently be measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the tax authority assuming full knowledge of the position and relevant facts.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 we did not have any interest, penalties or any significant unrecognized uncertain tax positions.

 

Earnings per Share

 

We calculate earnings per share in accordance with ASC Topic 260 Earnings Per Share, which requires a dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share are computed using the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the fiscal year. Diluted earnings per share represent basic earnings per share adjusted to include the potentially dilutive effect of outstanding stock options and warrants. The diluted earnings per share were not calculated because we recorded net losses for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, and the outstanding stock options and warrants are anti-dilutive. For the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, the following number of potentially dilutive shares have been excluded from diluted net loss since such inclusion would be anti-dilutive:

 

   Three Months Ended 
   March 31, 
   2020   2019 
Stock options outstanding   5,800,000    5,800,000 
Warrants   7,000,000    - 
Shares to be issued upon conversion of notes   190,488,453    -

As the result of such conversions, this note has been repaid in full and terminated.

 

Convertible Debenture

 

On February 12, 2020, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with Cavalry Fund I LP (the “Calvary Note”). Pursuant to the terms of the Calvary Note, the lender agreed to purchase from the Company, for a purchase price of $100,000, a 10% convertible note in the principal amount of $115,500. The Cavalry Note matures and becomes due and payable on November 11, 2020 and accrues interest at a rate of 10% per annum. The Calvary Note, plus all accrued but unpaid interest, may be prepaid at any time prior to the maturity date.

 

The Calvary Note is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at any time at a conversion price (the “Conversion Price”) equal to the lower of: (i) the lowest closing price of the common stock during the preceding twenty (20) trading day period ending on the latest complete trading day prior to the issuance date of the Note (the “Closing Price”), (ii) $0.04, or (iii) 60% of the lowest traded price for the Common Stock on the principal market on which the Common Stock is then trading during the twenty (20) consecutive trading days on which at least 100 shares of Common Stock were traded including and immediately preceding the date of conversion. Upon an event of default, the holder may elect to convert at an alternate conversion price which is the lower of: (i) the closing price of the Common Stock on the Principal Market on the Trading Day immediately preceding the issue date of the Calvary Note or (ii) 60% of either the lowest traded price or the closing bid price, whichever is lower for the common stock on the principal market during any trading day in which the event of default has not been cured. The conversion price of the Note will be further adjusted by another 15% reduction, regardless of whether there is an event of default, if (A) the Common stock is no longer a reporting company pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (B) the Note cannot be converted into free trading shares after 181 days from the issuance date of the Note, (C) the Common Stock is chilled for deposit at DTC or becomes chilled at any point while the Note remains outstanding, (D) deposit or other additional fees are payable due to a Yield Sign, Stop Sign or other trading restrictions, or (E) if the closing price at any time falls below $0.015. The conversion price is subject to customary adjustments. The conversion price is not subject to a floor.

The “Variable Conversion Price” shall mean 60% multiplied by the Market Price, which is the lowest Trading Price for the common stock during the twenty (20) trading day period ending on the latest complete trading day prior to the conversion date. The conversion price is subject to customary adjustments. The conversion price is not subject to a floor.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company recorded amortization of debt discount and original discount of $202,239 for all convertible debentures. This amount is included in interest expense in our consolidated statements of operations.

 

The following is a summary of the activity of the convertible notes payable and convertible debenture for the three months ended March 31, 2020:

 

   Total

Note 6. Derivative Liability

 

We evaluated the terms of the conversion features of the debentures in accordance with ASC Topic No. 815 - 40, Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Stock, and determined they are indexed to the Company’s common stock and that the conversion features meet the definition of a liability. Therefore, we bifurcated the conversion feature and accounted for it as a separate derivative liability.

 

To determine the fair value of our embedded derivatives, management evaluates assumptions regarding the probability of certain future events. Other factors used to determine fair value include our period end stock price, historical stock volatility, risk free interest rate and derivative term. The fair value recorded for the derivative liability varies from period to period. This variability may result in the actual derivative liability for a period either above or below the estimates recorded on our consolidated financial statements, resulting in significant fluctuations in other income (expense) because of the corresponding non-cash gain or loss recorded.

 

We value the conversion feature at origination of the notes using the Black-Scholes valuation model. We value the derivative liability at the end of each accounting period, and upon conversion of the underlying note or warrant, with the difference in value recognized as gain or loss included in other income (expense) in our consolidated statements of operations.

 

The original debentures had conversion features that resulted in derivative liabilities. We valued the conversion features at each origination date with the following assumptions, on a weighted-average basis:

 

   Three Months Ended 
   March 31, 2020 
Risk-free interest rate   1.04%
Expected term (in years)   0.86 
Expected volatility   154.3%
Expected dividend yield   0%
Exercise price of underlying common shares  $0.02 

 

    Year Ended December 31, 2019  
    Tranche 1     Tranche 2     Tranche 3     Warrants  
Risk-free interest rate     2.11 %     1.75 %     1.67 %     2.11 %
Expected term (in years)     1.25       1.03       0.89       1.25  
Expected volatility     312.4 %     303.70 %     326.88 %     312.4 %
Expected dividend yield     0 %     0 %     0 %     0 %
Exercise price of underlying common shares   $ 0.09     $ 0.04     $ 0.04     $ 0.08  

 

 13 
 

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the entire value of the principal of the debentures were assigned to the derivative liability and recognized as a debt discount on the convertible debentures. The debt discount is recorded as reduction (contra-liability) to the debentures and are being amortized over the initial term. The balance of $118,191 was recognized as origination interest on the derivative liability and expensed on origination. In accordance with the Company’s sequencing policy, shares issuable pursuant to the convertible debentures would be settled subsequent to the Company’s Series B preferred stock.

 

The following is a summary of the activity of the derivative liability for the three months ended March 31, 2020:

 

   Debenture   Warrants   Total 
Balance as of December 31, 2019  $1,047,977   $63,902   $1,111,879

Business Overview

 

On January 25, 2019, we acquired LGBT Loyalty LLC, a New York limited liability company, with the goal of creating the first LGBTQ Loyalty Preference Index ETF (the “Index ETF”) to provide the LGBTQ community with the power to influence the allocation of capital within a financial Index ETF based upon LGBTQ consumer preferences. The Index ETF is intended to link the growing economic influence of the LGBTQ community and their allies with many of the top Fortune 500 companies that support and implement diversity, inclusion and equality policies within their organizations. The incorporation of diversity and inclusion in a company’s recruitment and human resource policies is becoming a key concern to investors as part of their growing focus on ESG allocations. Our data and analytics unequivocally reinforce that corporations that have embraced diversity and inclusion policies within their corporate culture perform at a higher level financially than their peers. This includes advancing a more invigorated workforce that attracts and retains the best talent. Innovation and agility have been identified as great benefits of diversity, and there is an increasing awareness of what has come to be known as ‘the power of difference’.

 

On October 30, 2019, through our wholly-owned subsidiary Loyalty Preference Index, Inc. (“LPI”) and our strategically aligned partnerships with crowd sourced data and analytic providers, we launched the LGBTQ100 ESG Index which integrates LGBTQ community survey data into the methodology for a benchmark listing of the nation’s highest financially performing large-cap publicly listed corporations that our respondents believe are most committed to advancing equality. LPI is the index provider for the LGBTQ + ESG100 ETF; LGBTQ Loyalty was the Sponsor for the prospectus that was filed by the highly regarded licensed Fund Adviser ProcureAM, a wholly owned subsidiary of Procure Holdings, LLC., which is through our platform service agreement (“PSA”), and was approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in early January 2020. The LGBTQ + ESG100 ETF (the “Fund”) seeks to track the investment results (before fees and expenses) of the LGBTQ100 ESG Index. The Fund earns management fees based on assets under management (“AUM”) and is expected to launch in Q3- 2020 on the NASDAQ.

 

LGBTQ Loyalty has generated an abundance of media coverage for our premier LGBTQ Index product with the launch and listing on NYSE of the LGBTQ100 ESG Index. The exclusive media launch with Bloomberg Media was instrumental in propelling the LGBTQ100 brand to center stage overnight in the financial sector. In addition, LGBTQ Loyalty was featured at the Inside ETFs Summit in early 2020 with Board Members, Barney Frank and Billy Bean speaking on the “The Power of Inclusion & Equality” for investors. Our media strategy objective is to lay the groundwork for additional high-profile positioning of the brand as we work to achieve the desired increased financial media coverage and growth in AUM valuation for our company and shareholders.

Our Products

 

Our mission is to build a sustainable and well recognized brand focused on unlocking the growing purchasing power of the LGTBQ community globally by offering a robust LGBTQ Index and core ETF portfolio that attracts key institutional investors and corporations.

 

At the nucleus of our LGBTQ Loyalty Preference Index is our partner-driven Crowd Preference Index Methodology (CPIM) which disrupts ESG investing. This is achieved through an elevated screening process of financial performance data and ESG standards and practices, whereby LGBTQ community data on diversity and inclusion compliance directly impacts corporate financial results and transparently identifies and recognizes high performance companies who have consistently outperformed the S&P 500 index or equivalent sector standards and norms.

 

We intend to extend the LGBTQ Loyalty Index brand with future plans to develop indices with a focus on the ‘Social’ component of ESG utilizing our proprietary financial slogan of “Advancing Equality” within other gender, minority interest groups.

 

Revenue

 

The Company focus in 2019 was to create and launch our first of many financial Index products through an equality driven thematic ESG screened and alpha performance benchmark. The Company achieved this through its LGBTQ100 ESG Index listing and performance on the NYSE starting on October 30, 2019. In 2020 our collective efforts and focus is to monetize and scale our model by capturing recurring revenue streams through our current financial Index product. Our goal is to accelerate our revenue pursuits through our partnership and licensed relationships to achieve a break-even point when we have secured AUM benchmarked against the LGBTQ100 Index in excess of $50,000,000.

 

We intend to introduce a new key partnered revenue source derived from Direct Index Licensing Fees generated by financial institutions and asset management companies for creating a product (e.g. , Index Funds, Structured Financial Products, Turnkey Asset Management Providers) based on or linked to the LGBTQ100 index. This includes fees to use the LGBTQ100 index to track the performance of funds or as benchmarks for actively managed portfolios. We plan to capture Data Subscriptions which could provide recurring subscription revenue from our LGBTQ Index. This includes ongoing and historical data and information generated by our wholly owned division Loyalty Preference Index, Inc., and through our strategic partnerships for new potential financial equality-driven Indices.

 

New initiatives in 2020 include a plan to create ancillary revenue streams to complement and support this unique platform for the top 100 Equality driven Corporations in America represented in the LGBTQ100 Index. We believe our index will reward and elevate the status of those corporations that have adopted diversity and inclusion best practices, cared for their employees and positively impacted LGBTQ communities. Expert LGBTQ economists have repeatedly stressed the value of the LGBTQ brand loyalty to corporations. We consider the companies that best capture the spending trends and loyalty of the LGBTQ consumer will be better positioned for financial growth and success. Given the opportunity to link to the power and status generated between the LGBTQ community, these companies and their own workforce, we will launch a Partner Loyalty Program which includes benefits afforded to defined sponsorship tiers. The LGBTQ Loyalty Sponsorship is designed to attract the significant marketing dollars Fortune 500 companies are allocating to D&I programs with an opportunity to purchase LGBTQ Loyalty Sponsorship packages, including participation and brand exposure at planned conferences and events. Companies will be offered the opportunity to purchase LGBTQ Loyalty Sponsorship packages starting in Q2-2020.

 

Our initial investments in creating a high performing product with a well-recognized brand have been established. As we begin to move into planning for the post-COVID-19 world, we will now shift our efforts to cultivate new revenue stream opportunities while building AUM as we construct a profitable business platform.

 

We have achieved no revenues to date from our LGBTQ related operations and have been focused on building our product and achieving performance results and media branding over the course of the past twelve months. There are no assurances that can be given that we will achieve revenues or profitability in the future.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with GAAP, which contemplates our continuation as a going concern. As of March 31, 2020, we have incurred losses to date of $10,054,580 and have negative working capital of $3,461,248. To date we have funded our operations through advances from a related party, issuance of convertible debt, and the sale of our common stock. We intend to raise additional funding through third party equity or debt financing. There is no certainty that funding will be available as needed. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue operating as a going concern. Our ability to continue our operations as a going concern, realize the carrying value of our assets, and discharge our liabilities in the normal course of business is dependent upon our ability to raise capital sufficient to fund our commitments and ongoing losses, and ultimately generate profitable operations. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities in the balance sheets and revenues and expenses during the years reported. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments:

 

The Company has financial instruments that are considered derivatives or contain embedded features subject to derivative accounting. Embedded derivatives are valued separately from the host instrument and are recognized as derivative liabilities in the Company’s balance sheet. The Company measures these instruments at their estimated fair value and recognizes changes in their estimated fair value in results of operations during the period of change. The Company has a sequencing policy regarding share settlement wherein instruments with a fixed conversion price or floor would be settled first, and interest payable in shares settle next. Thereafter, share settlement order is based on instrument issuance date – earlier dated instruments settling before later dated. The sequencing policy also considers contingently issuable additional shares, such as those issuable upon a stock split, to have an issuance date to coincide with the event giving rise to the additional shares. The policy includes all shares issuable pursuant to debenture and preferred stock instruments as well as shares issuable under service and employment contracts and interest on short term loans.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Historically, we have been financed through advances from related parties, issuances of convertible debt, and the sale of our common and preferred stock. Our existing sources of liquidity will not be sufficient for us to implement our business plans. There are no assurances that we will be able to raise additional capital as and when needed. As of March 31, 2020, we had $2,258 in cash on hand. Based on our current planned expenditures, we will require approximately $2.5 million over the next 12 months. Our existing sources of liquidity may not be sufficient for us to implement our continuing business plan. Our need for future capital will be dependent upon the speed at which we expand our product offerings. There are no assurances that we will be able raise additional capital as and when needed.

 

As of March 31, 2020, we had a working capital deficit of $3,461,248 as compared to a working capital deficit of $2,947,531 at December 31, 2019.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, operations used and provided cash of $295,772 and $601,806, respectively.

From February to March 2020, we received $175,000 in proceeds from the issuance of two convertible debentures. In January 2020, we received $47,500 pursuant to a bridge note agreement. We also received $93,343 from the exercise of warrants.

We will continue to seek out additional capital in the form of debt or equity under the most favorable terms we can find.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

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

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”), the Company carried out an evaluation, with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) (the Company’s principal financial and accounting officer), of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s CEO and CFO concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective due to a lack of audit committee and segregation of duties caused by limited personnel to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the Company’s CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (Principal Executive Officer) and Chief Financial Officer (Principal Financial Officer), does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, 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. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected. These inherent limitations include, but are not limited to, the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the control. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

 

Management believes that the material weakness set forth above did not have an effect on our financial results.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the three months ended March 31, 2020 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
