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 . Digipath Labs’ mission is to provide pharmaceutical-grade analysis and testing to the cannabis industry to ensure consumers and patients know exactly what is in the cannabis they ingest and to help maximize the quality of our clients’ products through research, development, and standardization. We have been operating a cannabis testing lab in Nevada since 2015 and have plans to open labs in other states that have legalized the sale of cannabis, beginning with California.
     
  The National Marijuana News Corp . provides a balanced and unbiased approach to cannabis news, interviews and education with a news/talk radio show, app, national marijuana news website and social media presence focusing on the political, economic, medicinal, scientific, and cultural dimensions of the rapidly evolving—and profoundly controversial—medicinal and recreational marijuana industry.

 

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 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, 2017. 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, 2018:

 

    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. All subsidiaries shown above are wholly-owned by Digipath, Inc., the parent company.
(3) Entity formed for prospective purposes, but has not incurred any income or expenses to date.

 

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.

 

Reclassifications

 

Prior period interest income in the amount of $5,000 has been reclassified to net against the related $5,000 of bad debt expense to conform to the current period presentation. These reclassifications had no impact on net earnings, financial position or cash flows.

Segment Reporting

 

ASC Topic 280, “Segment Reporting,” requires use of the “management approach” model for segment reporting. The management approach model is based on the way a company’s management organizes segments within the company for making operating decisions and assessing performance. 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 .

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) on October 1, 2017. This update provides guidance on recognizing revenue, including a five-step model to determine when revenue recognition is appropriate. The standard requires that an entity recognize revenue from contracts with customers to depict the transfer of control of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitl ed in exchange for those goods or services. The new update does not affect how 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. 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 exclusive or predetermined quantities of tests. W e typically require payment within thirty days of the delivery of results. Revenues are recognized upon the substantial completion of the tests when collectability is reasonably assured, which is usually upon delivery of results to the customer.

 

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.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In May 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2017-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting , which clarifies when a change to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award must be accounted for as a modification. The new guidance requires modification accounting if the fair value, vesting condition or the classification of the award is not the same immediately before and after a change to the terms and conditions of the award. The new guidance is effective for all entities for annual periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this ASU to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements and does not plan to early adopt the ASU.

 

In May 2014 the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers . Since ASU 2014-09 was issued, several additional ASUs have been issued to clarify various elements of the guidance. These standards provide guidance on recognizing revenue, including a five-step model to determine when revenue recognition is appropriate. The standard requires that an entity recognize revenue to depict the transfer of control of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. We adopted the new standard to be effective with our first interim reporting period for the three months ended December 31, 2017. We use the modified retrospective method of adoption. We have completed an initial evaluation of the potential impact from adopting the new standard, including a detailed review of performance obligations for all material revenue streams. Based on this initial evaluation, adoption does not have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. Related disclosures have been expanded in line with the requirements of the standard.

DIGIPATH, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

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 ($12,376,084), and as of March 31, 2018, 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 – Related Party Transactions

 

Stock Based Compensation for Services

 

On March 26, 2018, the Company issued 207,852 shares of common stock to its CEO for services rendered pursuant to his employment agreement. The aggregate fair value of the common stock was $45,000 based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant, and was expensed over the requisite service period that ended on March 31, 2018.

 

On March 26, 2018, the Company issued 55,427 shares of common stock to its COO for services rendered pursuant to his employment agreement. The aggregate fair value of the common stock was $12,000 based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant, and was expensed over the requisite service period that ended on March 31, 2018.

 

On March 26, 2018, the Company issued 138,568 shares of common stock to its CFO for services rendered pursuant to his employment agreement. The aggregate fair value of the common stock was $30,000 based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant, and was expensed over the requisite service period that ended on March 31, 2018.

 

On December 22, 2017, the Company issued 300,000 shares of common stock to its CFO as a bonus for services rendered. The aggregate fair value of the common stock was $78,828 based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant, and was expensed in full.

 

On December 22, 2017, the Company issued 100,000 shares of common stock to Dr. Alfredo Axtmayer for his service on our Board of Directors. The aggregate fair value of the common stock was $26,276 based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant, and was expensed in full.

 

On December 22, 2017, we granted fully vested options to purchase 500,000 shares of common stock as compensation for services to our President and COO. The options are exercisable over a ten year period at an exercise price of $0.27 per share. The estimated value using the Black-Scholes Pricing Model, based on a volatility rate of 112% and a call option value of $0.2094, was $104,698. The options were expensed over the vesting period, resulting in $104,698 of stock based compensation expense during the six months ended March 31, 2018.

 

Note 4 – 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.

DIGIPATH, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

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, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively:

 

    Fair Value Measurements at March 31, 2018  
    Level 1     Level 2     Level 3  
Assets                        
Cash   $ 236,362     $ -     $ -  
Total assets     236,362       -       -  
Liabilities                        
Total liabilities     -       -       -  
    $ 236,362     $ -     $ -  

 

    Fair Value Measurements at September 30, 2017  
    Level 1     Level 2     Level 3  
Assets                        
Cash   $ 178,177     $ -     $ -  
Total assets     178,177       -       -  
Liabilities                        
Total liabilities     -       -       -  
    $ 178,177     $ -     $ -  

 

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, 2018 or the year ended September 30, 2017.

 

Note 5 – Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable was $240,044 and $266,613 at March 31, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively, net of allowance for doubtful accounts of $130,421 and $32,180 at March 31, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively.

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”), with the remaining 4,000,000 shares available for designation from time to time by the Board as set forth below. As of March 31, 2018, there were 1,425,942 shares of Series A Preferred issued and outstanding. The Board of Directors is authorized to determine any number of series into which the undesignated shares of preferred stock may be divided and to determine the rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions granted to any series of the preferred stock. 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 1,425,942 shares of Series A Preferred outstanding at March 31, 2018 are convertible into 7,129,710 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.

Note 10 – Other Income

 

Other income for the six months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 consisted of the following:

 

    March 31,  
    2018     2017  
Settlement income on license agreement   $ -     $ 250,000  
Rental income on subleases     38,400       1,500  
Restitution income     4,500       8,500  
    $ 42,900     $ 260,000  

 

Note 11 - 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, 2018 and the year ended September 30, 2017, 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, 2018, the Company had approximately $7,467,000 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, 2018 and September 30, 2017, 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 as of March 31, 2018 are described below.

 

  Digipath Labs, Inc . Digipath Labs’ mission is to provide pharmaceutical-grade analysis and testing to the cannabis industry to ensure consumers and patients know exactly what is in the cannabis they ingest and to help maximize the quality of our clients’ products through research, development, and standardization. We have been operating a cannabis testing lab in Nevada since 2015 and have plans to open labs in other states that have legalized the sale of cannabis, beginning with California.
     
  The National Marijuana News Corp . provides a balanced and unbiased approach to cannabis news, interviews and education with a news/talk radio show, app, national marijuana news website and social media presence focusing on the political, economic, medicinal, scientific, and cultural dimensions of the rapidly evolving—and profoundly controversial—medicinal and recreational marijuana industry.
     

Our cannabis testing and business licenses were briefly suspended by Nevada regulators for an eight business day period subsequent to the end of the quarter ended December 31, 2017, commencing at the end of business on Friday, January 19, 2018, and were reinstated on January 31, 2018. This significantly affected our financial results for the second fiscal quarter. In response to the temporary suspension, we refined our laboratory testing processes and increased our staffing to better support the level of demand we experienced during the first fiscal quarter, during which Nevada regulators suspended several of our competitors’ licenses, resulting in record revenues for us. We believe that we are now well positioned to handle future growth in full compliance with Nevada’s regulations applicable to our operations.

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2018 and 2017:

 

The following table summarizes selected items from the statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017.

 

    Three Months Ended March 31,     Increase /  
    2018     2017     (Decrease)  
Revenues   $ 583,073     $ 497,049     $ 86,024  
Cost of sales     665,858       221,010       444,848  
Gross profit (loss)     (82,785 )     276,039       (358,824 )

General and administrative     348,399       327,384       21,015

Net loss   $ (700,396 )   $ (223,600 )   $ 476,796  

 

Revenues

 

Revenues were generated by our cannabis testing lab and to a de minimis extent, from advertising on TNM News’ media outlets. Aggregate revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2018 were $583,073, compared to revenues of $497,049 during the three months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $86,024, or 17%. The increase in revenue was due to the continued growth of our testing lab operations in Nevada as our customer base, consisting of production and cultivation facilities, increased their operations, particularly following the implementation of the Nevada law permitting the recreational use of marijuana, which went into effect on July 1, 2017.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales for the three months ended March 31, 2018 were $665,858, compared to $221,010 during the three months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $444,848, or 201%. Cost of sales consists primarily of labor, depreciation, maintenance on lab equipment, and supplies consumed in our testing operations. The increased cost of sales in the current period was primarily due to increased labor and supplies as we revamped our operations to comply with regulators’ requirements and gear up for increased demand. During the three months ended March 31, 2018, we began to implement ISO/IEC 17025 standards for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, and outsourced our pesticide testing to a third party while we repaired and upgraded instrumentation and developed State approved assays. On April 1, 2018, we were able to resume our own pesticide testing, which is expected to significantly reduce our cost of sales in future periods. Our gross margins of approximately negative 14%, decreased during the three months ended March 31, 2018, compared to gross margins of approximately 56% during the three months ended March 31, 2017, as we devoted significant resources to the improvement of operations in response to the temporary suspension of our Nevada licenses. We expect cost of sales to decrease and gross margins to increase as we continue to grow, and for gross margins to be in the neighborhood of 50% as we now perform our own pesticide tests.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2018 were $348,399, compared to $327,384 during the three months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $21,015, or 6%. The expenses consisted primarily of marketing, rent, salaries and wages, and travel expenses.

 

Professional Fees

 

Professional fees for the three months ended March 31, 2018 were $249,111, compared to $273,951 during the three months ended March 31, 2017, a decrease of $24,840, or 9%. Professional fees decreased primarily due to decreased legal and consulting fees during the current period.

 

  15  
 

 

Bad Debts Expense

 

Bad debts expense for the three months ended March 31, 2018 was $42,301, compared to $4,304 during the three months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $37,997, or 883%. Bad debts expense increased during the current period as our allowance for doubtful accounts increased with the growth in sales and disruption of operations during the quarter.

 

Operating Loss

 

Our operating loss for the three months ended March 31, 2018 was $722,596 compared to $329,600 during the three months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $392,996, or 119%. Our operating loss increased primarily due to increased stock-based compensation, offset in part by our increased revenues during the three months ended March 31, 2018, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2017.

 

Other Income

 

Other income for the three months ended March 31, 2018 was $22,200, compared to other income of $106,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2017, a decrease of $83,800. Other income consisted of $19,200 of subleased storage space and $3,000 related to restitution payments received from a former employee for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Other income during the three months ended March 31, 2017 consisted of $1,500 of subleased storage space, $100,000 received pursuant to the settlement under a license agreement with GB Sciences, Inc. and $4,500 of restitution payments received from a former employee.

 

Net Loss

 

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2018 was $700,396, compared to $223,600 during the three months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $476,796, or 213%. The increased net loss was due primarily to increased staffing and outsourced pesticide testing costs over the comparative three month period, as we revamped operations to better position ourselves for anticipated increased demand in the recreational cannabis market and addressed the temporary suspension of our Nevada licenses.

Revenues

 

Revenues were generated by our cannabis testing lab and to a de minimis extent, from advertising on TNM News’ media outlets. Aggregate revenues for the six months ended March 31, 2018 were $1,701,858, compared to revenues of $906,800 during the six months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $795,058, or 88%. The increase in revenue was due to the continued growth of our testing lab operations in Nevada as our customer base, consisting of production and cultivation facilities, increased their operations, particularly following the implementation of the Nevada law permitting the recreational use of marijuana, which went into effect on July 1, 2017. This was bolstered during the first fiscal quarter of the current period due to the suspensions that were served by Nevada regulators on two of our competitors, as offset in part on our own suspension during the second fiscal quarter of the current period.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales for the six months ended March 31, 2018 were $1,042,630, compared to $425,142 during the six months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $617,488, or 145%. Cost of sales consists primarily of labor, depreciation, maintenance on lab equipment, and supplies consumed in our testing operations. The increased cost of sales in the current period was primarily due to increased labor and supplies as we revamped our operations to comply with regulators’ requirements and gear up for increased demand. During the six months ended March 31, 2018, we began to implement ISO/IEC 17025 standards for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, and outsourced our pesticide testing to a third party while we repaired and upgraded instrumentation and developed State approved assays. On April 1, 2018, we were able to resume our own pesticide testing, which is expected to significantly reduce our cost of sales in future periods. Our gross margins of approximately 39%, decreased during the six months ended March 31, 2018, compared to gross margins of approximately 53% during the six months ended March 31, 2017. We anticipate our gross margins to be in the neighborhood of 50% as we now perform our own pesticide tests.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses for the six months ended March 31, 2018 were $747,513, compared to $607,070 during the six months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $140,443, or 23%. The expenses consisted primarily of marketing, rent, salaries and wages, and travel expenses.

 

Professional Fees

 

Professional fees for the six months ended March 31, 2018 were $735,787, compared to $465,594 during the six months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $270,193, or 58%. Professional fees increased primarily due to increased stock-based compensation paid to employees and consultants during the current period.

 

Bad Debts Expense

 

Bad debts expense for the six months ended March 31, 2018 was $98,241, compared to $18,754 during the six months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $79,487, or 424%. Bad debts expense increased during the current period as our allowance for doubtful accounts increased with the growth in sales and disruption of operations during the quarter.

 

Operating Loss

 

Our operating loss for the six months ended March 31, 2018 was $922,313 compared to $609,760 during the six months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $312,553, or 51%. Our operating loss increased primarily due to increased cost of sales as we reworked our lab processes, in addition to increased stock-based compensation, offset in part by our increased revenues, during the six months ended March 31, 2018, compared to the six months ended March 31, 2017.

 

Other Income

 

Other income for the six months ended March 31, 2018 was $42,900, compared to other income of $260,000 during the six months ended March 31, 2017, a decrease of $217,100. Other income consisted of $38,400 of subleased rent and $4,500 related to restitution payments received from a former employee for the six months ended March 31, 2018. Other income during the six months ended March 31, 2017 consisted of $250,000 received pursuant to the settlement under a license agreement with GB Sciences, Inc., $1,500 of subleased rental income and $8,500 of restitution payments received from a former employee.

Net Loss

 

Net loss for the six months ended March 31, 2018 was $879,413, compared to $349,760 during the six months ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $529,653, or 151%. The increased net loss was due primarily to increased staffing and outsourced pesticide testing costs over the comparative three month period, as we revamped operations to better position ourselves for anticipated increased demand in the recreational cannabis market and addressed the temporary suspension of our Nevada licenses.

 

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, 2018 and 2017:

 

    2018     2017  
Operating Activities   $ 101,547     $ (105,060 )
Investing Activities     (186,370 )     (2,770 )
Financing Activities     143,008       250,000  
Net Increase in Cash   $ 58,185     $ 142,170  

 

Net Cash Provided in Operating Activities

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2018, net cash provided by operating activities was $101,547, compared to net cash used in operating activities of $105,060 for the same period ended March 31, 2017. The increase in cash provided by operating activities is primarily attributable to our $177,570, or 37% increase in gross profit as we continued to develop our cannabis testing lab operations .

 

Net Cash Used in Investing Activities

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2018, net cash used in investing activities was $186,370, compared to $2,770 for the same period ended March 31, 2017. The increase is attributable to greater investments made for cannabis testing equipment in the current period than was necessary in the comparative period.

 

Net Cash Provided by Financing Activities

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2018, net cash provided by financing activities was $143,008, compared to $250,000 for the same period ended March 31, 2017.

 

Ability to Continue as a Going Concern

 

As of March 31, 2018, our balance of cash on hand was $236,362. We currently may not have sufficient funds to sustain our operations for the next twelve months and we may 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 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.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) on October 1, 2017. This update provides guidance on recognizing revenue, including a five-step model to determine when revenue recognition is appropriate. The standard requires that an entity recognize revenue from contracts with customers to depict the transfer of control of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The new update does not affect how 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. 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 exclusive or predetermined quantities of tests. W e typically require payment within thirty days of the delivery of results. Revenues are recognized upon the substantial completion of the tests when collectability is reasonably assured, which is usually upon delivery of results to the customer.

 

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 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2018. The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, means controls and other procedures of a company that are 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 recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures 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, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives, and management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Based on the evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2018, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no significant changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) or in other factors that occurred during the period of our evaluation or subsequent to the date we carried out our evaluation which have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. The design of any system of controls and procedures is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events. There can be no assurance that any system of controls and procedures will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions, regardless of how remote.
