DIGIPATH, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1 – Organization, Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies

 

Organization

DigiPath, Inc. was incorporated in Nevada on October 5, 2010. DigiPath, Inc. and its subsidiaries (“DigiPath,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) supports the cannabis industry’s best practices for reliable testing, cannabis education and training, and brings unbiased cannabis news coverage to the cannabis industry. Our business units are described below.

 

DigiPath Labs, Inc. plans to set the industry standard for testing all forms of cannabis-based products using FDA-compliant laboratory equipment and processes to report product safety and efficacy. In May of 2015, we opened our first testing lab in Nevada and have plans to open labs in other legal states. Our customers were not fully operational when we opened our lab. As a result, we had minimal revenues for the first four months of operations and our customers have subsequently been steadily opening their businesses.
   
TNM News Corp. provides a balanced and unbiased approach to cannabis news with a news/talk radio show and national marijuana news website focusing on the political, economic, medicinal, scientific, and cultural dimensions of the rapidly evolving—and profoundly controversial—medicinal and recreational marijuana industry .
   
DigiPath Corp. develops digital pathology systems to create, store, manage, analyze and correlate data collected through virtual microscopy for plant and cell based industries. We divested two-thirds of this entity on October 1, 2015, and now own a minority interest of approximately 33.34%.

 

Stock Split

All share and per share amounts herein have been given retroactive effect to the 1-for-10 reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock effected May 27, 2015 (See Note 10).

 

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company and the accompanying notes included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are unaudited. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been included. Such adjustments are of a normal, recurring nature. The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, and the accompanying notes, are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) and do not contain certain information included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2015. The interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with that Annual Report on Form 10-K. Results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that might be expected for the entire fiscal year.

 

Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the following entities, all of which were under common control and ownership at March 31, 2016:

 

  State of    
Name of Entity (1)   Incorporation   Relationship
DigiPath, Inc. (2)   Nevada   Parent
DigiPath Labs, Inc.   Nevada   Subsidiary
TNM News, Inc.   Nevada   Subsidiary
GroSciences, Inc. (3)   Colorado   Subsidiary

 

(1) All entities are in the form of a corporation.

 

(2) Holding company, which owns each of the wholly-owned subsidiaries. As of March 31, 2016, all subsidiaries shown above were wholly-owned by DigiPath, Inc., the parent company.

 

(3) Entity formed for prospective purposes, but has not incurred any income or expenses to date.

DIGIPATH, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

The consolidated financial statements herein contain the operations of the wholly-owned subsidiaries listed above. All significant inter-company transactions have been eliminated in the preparation of these financial statements. The parent company and subsidiaries will be collectively referred to herein as the “Company”, “DigiPath” or “DIGP”. The Company’s headquarters are located in Las Vegas, Nevada and substantially all of its customers are within the United States.

 

These statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, which in the opinion of management are necessary for fair presentation of the information contained therein.

 

Equity Method

Investee companies that are not consolidated, but over which the Company exercises significant influence, are accounted for under the equity method of accounting. Whether or not the Company exercises significant influence with respect to an Investee depends on an evaluation of several factors including, among others, representation on the Investee company’s board of directors and ownership level, which is generally a 20% to 50% interest in the voting securities of the Investee company. Under the equity method of accounting, an Investee company’s accounts are not reflected within the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets and Statements of Operations; however, the Company’s share of the earnings or losses of the Investee company is reflected in the caption “Equity in losses of unconsolidated entity” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company’s carrying value in an equity method Investee company is reflected in the caption “Investment in DigiPath Corp.” in the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets.

 

U.S. GAAP considers a change in reporting entity to include “changing specific subsidiaries that make up the group of entities for which consolidated financial statements are presented.” Circumstances may arise where a parent’s controlling financial interest (e.g., generally an ownership interest in excess of 50 percent of the outstanding voting stock) is reduced to a noncontrolling investment that still enables it to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of the investee. A change that results from changed facts and circumstances (such as a partial sale of a subsidiary), where there was only one acceptable method of accounting prior to the change in circumstances (consolidation) and only one acceptable method of accounting after the change (equity method accounting), is not a change in reporting entity and is not be accounted for retrospectively. Accordingly, a change from a controlling interest to a noncontrolling investment accounted for under the equity method is accounted for prospectively from the date of change in control. When the Company’s carrying value in an equity method Investee company is reduced to zero, no further losses are recorded in the Company’s consolidated financial statements unless the Company guaranteed obligations of the Investee company or has committed additional funding. When the Investee company subsequently reports income, the Company will not record its share of such income until it equals the amount of its share of losses not previously recognized.

 

Reclassifications

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. These reclassifications had no impact on net earnings, financial position or cash flows.

 

Segment Reporting

Under FASB ASC 280-10-50, the Company operates as a single segment and will evaluate additional segment disclosure requirements as it expands its operations.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Under FASB ASC 820-10-05, the Financial Accounting Standards Board establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. This Statement reaffirms that fair value is the relevant measurement attribute. The adoption of this standard did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements as reflected herein. The carrying amounts of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses reported on the balance sheets are estimated by management to approximate fair value primarily due to the short term nature of the instruments. In addition, the Company had debt instruments that required fair value measurement on a recurring basis.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with ASC 605, Revenue Recognition. ASC 605 requires that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery of product has met the criteria established in the arrangement or services rendered; (3) the fee is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. This occurs when the products or services are completed in accordance with the contracts we have with clients. In connection with our products and services arrangements, when we are paid in advance, these amounts are classified as deferred revenue and amortized over the term of the agreement. With respect to our cannabis lab testing revenues, we sell our services on a determinable fixed fee per test, or panel of tests basis, and offer a discounted price for customers that agree to enter into exclusive, long term contracts. We typically require payment prior to the delivery of results. As such, revenues are recognized upon the delivery of results, which coincide with the completion of the tests.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company accounts for equity instruments issued to employees as compensation in accordance with the provisions of ASC 718 Stock Compensation (ASC 718) and equity-based payments as compensation to non-employees pursuant to ASC 505-50 (ASC 505-50). All transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The measurement date of the fair value of the equity instrument issued is the earlier of the date on which the counterparty’s performance is complete or the date at which a commitment for performance by the counterparty to earn the equity instruments is reached because of sufficiently large disincentives for nonperformance.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In January 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-16, Financial Instruments - Overall (Subtopic 825-10), Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. The provisions of the update require equity investments to be measured at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income. However, an entity may choose to measure equity investments that do not have readily determinable fair values at cost minus impairment. The update also simplifies the impairment assessment of equity investments without readily determinable fair values by requiring a qualitative assessment to identify impairment. It also eliminates the requirement to disclose the fair value of financial instruments measured at amortized cost for entities that are not public business entities, and eliminates the requirement for public business entities to disclose the methods and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value for financial instruments measured at amortized cost on the balance sheet. ASU No. 2016-16 requires public business entities to use the exit price notion when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purposes. It also requires an entity to present separately in other comprehensive income the portion of the total change in the fair value of a liability resulting from a change in the instrument-specific credit risk when the entity has elected to measure the liability at fair value in accordance with the fair value option for financial instruments. The update requires separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by category and form on the balance sheet or the accompanying notes to the financial statements. In addition, the update clarifies that an entity should evaluate the need for a valuation allowance on a deferred tax asset related to available-for-sale securities in combination with the entity’s other deferred tax assets. For public business entities, the amendments in the update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods. The adoption of this ASU is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-17, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes (“ASU 2015-17”). ASU 2015-17 requires deferred tax liabilities and assets to be classified as noncurrent in the consolidated financial statements instead of separating deferred taxes into current and noncurrent amounts. ASU 2015-17 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2016, and early adoption is permitted. The adoption of ASU 2015-17 is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-02, Consolidation: Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis (“ASU 2015-02”). ASU 2015-02 changes the analysis that a reporting entity must perform to determine whether it should consolidate certain types of legal entities. ASU 2015-02 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. The Company will adopt ASU 2015-02 on October 1, 2016, and it is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and disclosures.

In January 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-01, Simplifying Income Statement—Presentation by Eliminating the Concept of Extraordinary Items (“ASU 2015-01”). ASU 2015 -01 is intended to reduce complexity and cost of compliance with GAAP by eliminating the concept of extraordinary items in the statement of operations. The amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015, and early adoption is permitted. The Company adopted ASU 2015-01 as of October 1, 2015. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and disclosures.

 

In April 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-08, Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant and Equipment (Topic 360:)Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity (collectively “ASU 2014-08”). ASU 2014-08 changes the reporting requirements for reporting discontinued operations in Subtopic 205-20. A disposal of a component of an entity or a group of components of an entity is required to be reported in discontinued operations if the disposal represents a strategic shift that has (or will have) a major effect on an entity’s operations and financial results when any of the following occurs:

 

  1. The component of an entity or group of components of an entity meets the criteria in paragraph 205-20-45-1E to be classified as held for sale.
     
  2. The component of an entity or group of components of an entity is disposed of by sale.
     
  3. The component of an entity or group of components of an entity is disposed of other than by sale (for example, by abandonment or in a distribution to owners in a spinoff).

 

ASU 2014-08 is effective for all disposals (or classifications as held for sale) of components of an entity that occur within annual periods beginning on or after December 15, 2014, and interim periods within those years. Early adoption is permitted, but only for disposals (or classifications as held for sale) that have not been reported in financial statements previously issued or available for issuance. The Company adopted ASU 2014-08 for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2015.

 

There are no other recently issued accounting pronouncements that the Company has yet to adopt that are expected to have a material effect on its financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

 

Note 2 – Going Concern

 

As shown in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company has incurred recurring losses from operations resulting in an accumulated deficit of ($8,911,570), and as of March 31, 2016, the Company’s cash on hand may not be sufficient to sustain operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management is actively pursuing new customers to increase revenues. In addition, the Company is currently seeking additional sources of capital to fund short term operations. Management believes these factors will contribute toward achieving profitability. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of any uncertainty as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These financial statements also do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts, or amounts and classifications of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Note 3 – Investment, Equity Method

 

On October 1, 2015, as more fully described in Note 4 below, we divested two-thirds of DigiPath Corp. when warrant holders in DigiPath Corp. acquired one-third interest through the exercise of warrants held by Steven D. Barbee, our former Director, and the other warrant holder acquired another one-third interest through the sale of new issuances, commensurate with the cancellation of previously issued warrants. We now own a minority interest of approximately 33.34%. As a result, the comparative statement of operations for the six months ended March 31, 2015, which included the accounts of the digital pathology business segment, on a consolidated basis, has been restated to reflect adjustments of line items for revenue and costs applicable to the digital pathology business segment and to reflect the losses of this business on the equity basis of accounting. The original investment was adjusted to fair value on October 1, 2015, resulting in a carrying value of $106,675 and an “Equity in losses of unconsolidated entity” of $992,682 was recognized during the six months ended March 31, 2016, consisting of an impairment of $893,325 on the adjustment to from the carrying value to the fair value and $99,357 of the Company’s pro-rata share of the net loss.

Note 4 – Related Party Transactions

 

Divestiture of Wholly-Owned Subsidiary, DigiPath Corp.

On October 1, 2015, DigiPath, Inc., entered into an Omnibus Agreement and Amendment (the “Agreement”) with DigiPath Corp., and our former Director, Steven D. Barbee. Pursuant to the Agreement, among other things:

 

  The exercise price of the warrant held by Mr. Barbee to purchase 3,000,000 shares of common stock of DigiPath Corp. (the “Barbee Warrant”) was reduced from $0.10 per share to $0.0333333 per share, and Mr. Barbee subsequently exercised the warrant.
     
  Mr. Barbee resigned as a director of the Company.
     
  The Consulting, Confidentiality and Proprietary Rights Agreement, dated as of May 30, 2014, between the Company and Mr. Barbee, as amended, was terminated.
     
  Indebtedness of approximately $18,201 owed by the Company to DigiPath Corp. was cancelled.
     
  DigiPath Corp. was provided with the right to require the Company to change its name so as not to include the name “DigiPath” in the event of the sale of all or substantially all of the assets or capital stock of DigiPath Corp., or a merger of DigiPath Corp. following which the Company ceases to be a shareholder of DigiPath Corp., in each case, that occurs within 12 months following the date of the Agreement.
     
  The Company, as a shareholder of DigiPath Corp, was provided with (i) rights of first-refusal and co-sale rights with respect to sales of common stock of DigiPath Corp by Barbee, and (ii) pre-emptive rights with respect to issuances of common stock by DigiPath Corp.

 

Concurrently with the execution of the Agreement, DigiPath Corp. agreed to issue 3,000,000 shares of its common stock to a third party for an aggregate purchase price of $100,000, and an affiliate of such party agreed to surrender 60,000 shares of Series A Preferred of the Company for cancellation, and terminate a previously held warrant to purchase 3,000,000 shares of common stock of DigiPath Corp. As a result of such issuance of shares of DigiPath Corp common stock, and after giving effect to the exercise of the Barbee Warrant, the Company continued to hold approximately 33.34% of the outstanding shares of common stock of DigiPath Corp. Following the execution of the Agreement, Mr. Barbee continued to serve as the President and sole director of DigiPath Corp.

Note 5 – Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Under FASB ASC 820-10-5, fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (an exit price). The standard outlines a valuation framework and creates a fair value hierarchy in order to increase the consistency and comparability of fair value measurements and the related disclosures. Under GAAP, certain assets and liabilities must be measured at fair value, and FASB ASC 820-10-50 details the disclosures that are required for items measured at fair value.

 

The Company has certain financial instruments that must be measured under the new fair value standard. The Company’s financial assets and liabilities are measured using inputs from the three levels of the fair value hierarchy. The three levels are as follows:

 

Level 1 - Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date.

 

Level 2 - Inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (e.g., interest rates, yield curves, etc.), and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means (market corroborated inputs).

 

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that reflect our assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

 

The following schedule summarizes the valuation of financial instruments at fair value on a recurring basis in the balance sheets as of March 31, 2016 and September 30, 2015, respectively:

 

    Fair Value Measurements at March 31, 2016  
    Level 1     Level 2     Level 3

The fair value of our intellectual properties are deemed to approximate book value, and are considered Level 3 inputs as defined by ASC Topic 820-10-35.

 

There were no transfers of financial assets or liabilities between Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 inputs for the six months ended March 31, 2016 or the year ended September 30, 2015.

 

We recognized total impairment losses of $893,325 on our ownership interest in DigiPath Corp. during the six months ended March 31, 2016, and impairment losses of $328,336 on our intellectual properties during the year ended September 30, 2015.

Note 10 - Changes in Stockholders’ Equity

 

Reverse Stock Split

Effective May 27, 2015, the Company effected the 1 for 10 Reverse Stock Split. No fractional shares were issued, and no cash or other consideration was paid in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Instead, the Company issued one whole share of the post-Reverse Stock Split common stock to any stockholder who otherwise would have received a fractional share as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. The Company was authorized to issue 900,000,000 shares of common stock prior to the Reverse Stock Split. As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, the Company’s authorized shares decreased ratably to 90,000,000 shares of common stock. The Reverse Stock Split did not have any effect on the stated par value of the common stock, or the Company’s authorized preferred stock. Unless otherwise stated, all share and per share information in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q has been retroactively adjusted to reflect the Reverse Stock Split.

 

Convertible Preferred Stock

The Company is authorized to issue 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock with a par value of $0.001 per share, of which 6,000,000 have been designated as Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series A Preferred”). The Board of Directors is authorized to determine any number of series into which shares of preferred stock may be divided and to determine the rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions granted to any series of the preferred stock. Effective as of April 4, 2014, the designations, rights and preferences of the preferred shares changed to blank check preferred. As of March 31, 2016, there were 3,971,442 shares of Series A Preferred issued and outstanding. Shares of Series A Preferred are convertible into common stock at a fixed conversion rate of $0.20 per share.

 

The conversion price is adjustable in the event of stock splits and other adjustments in the Company’s capitalization, and in the event of certain negative actions undertaken by the Company. At the current conversion price, the 3,971,442 shares of Series A Preferred outstanding at March 31, 2016 are convertible into 19,857,210 shares of the common stock of the Company. No holder is permitted to convert its shares of Series A Preferred if such conversion would cause the holder to beneficially own more than 4.99% of the issued and outstanding common stock of the Company immediately after such conversion, unless waived by such holder by providing at least sixty-five days’ notice.

 

Preferred Stock Conversions

On February 26, 2016, a shareholder converted 100,000 shares of Series A Preferred into 500,000 shares of common stock. The stock was converted in accordance with the conversion terms; therefore no gain or loss has been recognized.

 

On October 29, 2015, a shareholder converted 100,000 shares of Series A Preferred into 500,000 shares of common stock. The stock was converted in accordance with the conversion terms; therefore no gain or loss has been recognized.

 

On October 8, 2015, a shareholder converted 120,000 shares of Series A Preferred into 600,000 shares of common stock. The stock was converted in accordance with the conversion terms; therefore no gain or loss has been recognized.

 

Preferred Stock Cancellation

On October 1, 2015, a shareholder cancelled 60,000 shares of Series A Preferred as part of the divestiture of DigiPath Corp.

 

Common Stock

Common stock consists of $0.001 par value, 90,000,000 shares authorized, of which 18,552,706 shares were issued and outstanding as of March 31, 2016.

Other income consists of rental income for office space subleased to GB Sciences, Inc. at a monthly fee of $6,000. The tenant is late on its monthly payments and vacated the premises on February 1, 2016. We’ve recognized an allowance for doubtful accounts of $36,146 related to the unpaid lease payments at March 31, 2016. Other income was $30,000 and $-0- for the six months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

 

Note 14 – Gain on Debt Settlements

 

On October 1, 2015, as part of the divestiture of DigiPath Corp., a total of $18,201 of intercompany debt owed from DigiPath, Inc. to DigiPath Corp. was forgiven by DigiPath Corp. As a related party, one third of the debt was eliminated and the remaining $12,133 was recognized as a gain on early extinguishment of debt. The Company evaluated the classification of this gain and determined that the gain does not meet the criteria for classification as an extraordinary item. As a result, the gain has been included as “Gain on early extinguishment of debt: under “Other income (expense)” within income from continuing operations in the accompanying Consolidated Statement of Operations for the six months ended March 31, 2016.

 

Note 15 - Income Tax

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under FASB ASC 740-10, which requires use of the liability method. FASB ASC 740-10-25 provides that deferred tax assets and liabilities are recorded based on the differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts for financial reporting purposes, referred to as temporary differences.

 

For the six months ended March 31, 2016 and the year ended September 30, 2015, the Company incurred a net operating loss and, accordingly, no provision for income taxes has been recorded. In addition, no benefit for income taxes has been recorded due to the uncertainty of the realization of any tax assets. At March 31, 2016, the Company had approximately $6,527,000 of federal net operating losses. The net operating loss carry forwards, if not utilized, will begin to expire in 2031.

Based on the available objective evidence, including the Company’s history of its loss, management believes it is more likely than not that the net deferred tax assets will not be fully realizable. Accordingly, the Company provided for a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets at March 31, 2016 and September 30, 2015, respectively.

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 740, the Company has evaluated its tax positions and determined there are no uncertain tax positions.

Overview

 

DigiPath, Inc. was incorporated in Nevada on October 5, 2010. DigiPath, Inc. and its subsidiaries (“DigiPath,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) supports the cannabis industry’s best practices for reliable testing, cannabis education and training, and brings unbiased cannabis news coverage to the cannabis industry. Our business units are described below.

 

DigiPath Labs, Inc. plans to set the industry standard for testing all forms of cannabis-based products using FDA-compliant laboratory equipment and processes to report product safety and efficacy. In May of 2015, we opened our first testing lab in Nevada and have plans to open labs in other legal states. Our customers were not fully operational when we opened our lab. As a result, we had minimal revenues for the first four months of operations and our customers have subsequently been steadily opening their businesses.
   
TNM News Corp. provides a balanced and unbiased approach to cannabis news with a news/talk radio show and national marijuana news website focusing on the political, economic, medicinal, scientific, and cultural dimensions of the rapidly evolving—and profoundly controversial—medicinal and recreational marijuana industry .
   
DigiPath Corp. develops digital pathology systems to create, store, manage, analyze and correlate data collected through virtual microscopy for plant and cell based industries. We divested two-thirds of this entity on October 1, 2015, and now own a minority interest of 33.34%.

 

On October 7, 2015, we appointed Joseph Bianco to chair our Board of Directors. On November 23, 2015, we entered into an agreement with an affiliate of Mr. Bianco for an initial term of 15 months, commencing retroactively from October 1, 2015 and ending on December 31, 2016, under which such affiliate is entitled to a monthly fee of $4,000, of which $2,000 shall be deferred until the Company’s operations become cash flow positive. The agreement also provides for the issuance of 500,000 shares of common stock for each calendar year of service, subject to a ratable “claw back” provision.

 

On October 1, 2015, DigiPath, Inc., entered into an Omnibus Agreement and Amendment (the “Agreement”) with DigiPath Corp., and our former Director, Steven D. Barbee. Pursuant to the Agreement, among other things:

 

The exercise price of the warrant held by Mr. Barbee to purchase 3,000,000 shares of common stock of DigiPath Corp. (the “Barbee Warrant”) was reduced from $0.10 per share to $0.0333333 per share, and Mr. Barbee subsequently exercised the warrant.
   
Mr. Barbee resigned as a director of the Company.
   
The Consulting, Confidentiality and Proprietary Rights Agreement, dated as of May 30, 2014, between the Company and Mr. Barbee, as amended, was terminated.
   
Indebtedness of approximately $18,201 owed by the Company to DigiPath Corp. was cancelled.
   
DigiPath Corp. was provided with the right to require the Company to change its name so as not to include the name “DigiPath” in the event of the sale of all or substantially all of the assets or capital stock of DigiPath Corp., or a merger of DigiPath Corp. following which the Company ceases to be a shareholder of DigiPath Corp., in each case, that occurs within 12 months following the date of the Agreement.
   
The Company, as a shareholder of DigiPath Corp, was provided with (i) rights of first-refusal and co-sale rights with respect to sales of common stock of DigiPath Corp by Barbee, and (ii) pre-emptive rights with respect to issuances of common stock by DigiPath Corp.

 

Concurrently with the execution of the Agreement, DigiPath Corp. agreed to issue 3,000,000 shares of its common stock to a third party for an aggregate purchase price of $100,000, and an affiliate of such party agreed to surrender 60,000 shares of Series A Preferred of the Company for cancellation, and terminate a previously held warrant to purchase 3,000,000 shares of common stock of DigiPath Corp. As a result of such issuance of shares of DigiPath Corp common stock, and after giving effect to the exercise of the Barbee Warrant, the Company continued to hold approximately 33.34% of the outstanding shares of common stock of DigiPath Corp. Following the execution of the Agreement, Mr. Barbee continued to serve as the President and sole director of DigiPath Corp.

Revenues

 

Revenues were generated by our cannabis testing lab and our advertising from our National Marijuana News Corp. division . Aggregate revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2016 were $141,116, compared to revenues of $136,452 during the three months ended March 31, 2015, an increase of $4,664, or 3%. The revenue in the current period was due to the commencement of our testing lab operations in Nevada and the corresponding growth in our customer base as production and cultivation facilities established their operations, while the comparative period revenues were derived from our digital pathology business that has been divested and is now being presented prospectively on the equity method of accounting. We anticipate steadily increasing lab testing revenues during the remainder of the fiscal year ending September 30, 2016.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales for the three months ended March 31, 2016 were $85,367, compared to $88,801 during the three months ended March 31, 2015, a decrease of $3,434, or 4%. The cost of sales in the current period was primarily due to the costs of labor and supplies consumed in our testing operations that were not incurred prior to the opening of our lab in May of 2015, while the comparative period cost of sales were derived from our digital pathology business.

The expenses consisted primarily of marketing, rent, salaries and wages, and travel expenses. The decrease was primarily due to decreased marketing and officer compensation expenses as we aggressively instituted budget cuts in our cannabis testing lab operations to conserve resources, in addition to no longer carrying the consolidated general and administrative expenses of our digital pathology business.

 

Professional Fees

 

Professional fees for the three months ended March 31, 2016 were $167,804, compared to $312,273 during the three months ended March 31, 2015, a decrease of $144,469, or 46%. Professional fees decreased primarily due to increased reliance on our employees for professional services and reduced legal and advertising fees.

 

Bad Debts Expense

 

Bad debts expense for the three months ended March 31, 2016 were $13,250, compared to $4,193 during the three months ended March 31, 2015, an increase of $9,057.

Net operating loss decreased primarily due to the decreased professional and marketing fees as we aggressively instituted budget cuts in our cannabis testing lab operations to conserve resources, in addition to no longer carrying the consolidated general and administrative expenses of our digital pathology business, as diminished by our increased non-cash bad debts and depreciation and amortization expense during the three months ended March 31, 2016, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015.

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

Other expenses, on a net basis, for the three months ended March 31, 2016 were $39,931, compared to other income of $12,125 during the three months ended March 31, 2015, a decrease of $52,056.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The following is a summary of the Company’s cash flows provided by (used in) operating, investing, and financing activities for the six month periods ended March 31, 2016 and 2015:

 

    2016     2015  
Operating Activities   $ (587,323 )   $ (1,700,668 )
Investing Activities     (68,455 )     (1,424,839 )
Financing Activities     357,500       9,506  
Net decrease in Cash   $ (298,278 )   $ (3,116,001 )

 

Net Cash Used in Operating Activities

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2016, net cash used in operating activities was $587,323, compared to $1,700,668 for the same period ended March 31, 2015. The decrease in cash used for operating activities is primarily attributable to marketing, officer compensation and office expense cost savings we implemented as we aggressively cut costs in our cannabis testing lab operations to conserve resources until our lab revenues can sustain operations.

 

  21  
 

 

Net Cash Used in Investing Activities

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2016, net cash used in investing activities was $68,455, compared to $1,424,839 for the same period ended March 31, 2015. The decrease is attributable to investments made for cannabis testing equipment and leasehold improvements required for our Nevada cannabis testing lab made in the previous period that were not necessary in the current period, as diminished by $57,876 of cash held and retained by our subsidiary, DigiPath Corp., at the time of divestiture.

 

Net Cash Provided by Financing Activities

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2016, net cash provided by financing activities was $357,500, compared to $9,506 for the same period ended March 31, 2015. The increase is primarily due to the increased sale of securities during the six months ended March 31, 2016, compared to the six months ended March 31, 2015.

 

Ability to Continue as a Going Concern

 

As of March 31, 2016, our balance of cash on hand was $182,817. We currently do not have funds sufficient to fund our operations for the next twelve months and need to raise additional cash to fund our operations and expand our lab testing business. As we continue to develop our lab testing business and attempt to expand operational activities, we expect to continue to experience net negative cash flows from operations in amounts not now determinable, and will be required to obtain additional financing to fund operations through common stock offerings to the extent necessary to provide working capital. We have and expect to continue to have substantial capital expenditure and working capital needs.

 

The Company has incurred recurring losses from operations resulting in an accumulated deficit, and, as set forth above, the Company’s cash on hand is not sufficient to sustain operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management is actively pursuing new customers to increase revenues. In addition, the Company is currently seeking additional sources of capital to fund short term operations. In the event sales do not materialize at the expected rates, management would seek additional financing or would attempt to conserve cash by further reducing expenses. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in achieving these objectives, becoming profitable or continuing our business without either a temporary interruption or a permanent cessation. In addition, additional financing may result in substantial dilution to existing stockholders.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no outstanding off-balance sheet guarantees, interest rate swap transactions or foreign currency contracts. We do not engage in trading activities involving non-exchange traded contracts.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires our management to make assumptions, estimates and judgments that affect the amounts reported, including the notes thereto, and related disclosures of commitments and contingencies, if any. We have identified certain accounting policies that are significant to the preparation of our financial statements. These accounting policies are important for an understanding of our financial condition and results of operations. Critical accounting policies are those that are most important to the presentation of our financial condition and results of operations and require management’s subjective or complex judgment, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain and may change in subsequent periods. Certain accounting estimates are particularly sensitive because of their significance to financial statements and because of the possibility that future events affecting the estimate may differ significantly from management’s current judgments.

 

While our significant accounting policies are more fully described in notes to our consolidated financial statements appearing elsewhere in this Form 10-Q, we believe that the following accounting policies are the most critical to aid you in fully understanding and evaluating our reported financial results and affect the more significant judgments and estimates that we used in the preparation of our financial statements.

Equity Method

 

Investee companies that are not consolidated, but over which the Company exercises significant influence, are accounted for under the equity method of accounting. Whether or not the Company exercises significant influence with respect to an Investee depends on an evaluation of several factors including, among others, representation on the Investee company’s board of directors and ownership level, which is generally a 20% to 50% interest in the voting securities of the Investee company. Under the equity method of accounting, an Investee company’s accounts are not reflected within the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets and Statements of Operations; however, the Company’s share of the earnings or losses of the Investee company is reflected in the caption “Equity in losses of unconsolidated entity” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company’s carrying value in an equity method Investee company is reflected in the caption “Investment in DigiPath Corp.” in the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets.

 

U.S. GAAP considers a change in reporting entity to include “changing specific subsidiaries that make up the group of entities for which consolidated financial statements are presented.” Circumstances may arise where a parent’s controlling financial interest (e.g., generally an ownership interest in excess of 50 percent of the outstanding voting stock) is reduced to a noncontrolling investment that still enables it to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of the investee. A change that results from changed facts and circumstances (such as a partial sale of a subsidiary), where there was only one acceptable method of accounting prior to the change in circumstances (consolidation) and only one acceptable method of accounting after the change (equity method accounting), is not a change in reporting entity and is not be accounted for retrospectively. Accordingly, a change from a controlling interest to a noncontrolling investment accounted for under the equity method is accounted for prospectively from the date of change in control. When the Company’s carrying value in an equity method Investee company is reduced to zero, no further losses are recorded in the Company’s consolidated financial statements unless the Company guaranteed obligations of the Investee company or has committed additional funding. When the Investee company subsequently reports income, the Company will not record its share of such income until it equals the amount of its share of losses not previously recognized.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for equity instruments issued to employees in accordance with the provisions of ASC 718 Stock Compensation (ASC 718) and Equity-Based Payments to Non-employees pursuant to ASC 505-50 (ASC 505-50). All transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The measurement date of the fair value of the equity instrument issued is the earlier of the date on which the counterparty’s performance is complete or the date at which a commitment for performance by the counterparty to earn the equity instruments is reached because of sufficiently large disincentives for nonperformance.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

As a “smaller reporting company” as defined by Item 10 of Regulation S-K, the Company is not required to provide the information required by this Item

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures : We conducted an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. The term “disclosure controls and procedures”, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”), means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the company in the reports it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures also include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded as of March 31, 2016, that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective to a reasonable assurance level of achieving such objectives. However, it should be noted that the design of any system of controls 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, regardless of how remote.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting : There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ending March 31, 2016, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
