REALBIZ MEDIA GROUP, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1: NATURE OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Nature of Business

 

RealBiz Media Group, Inc. ("RealBiz") is engaged in the business of providing digital media and marketing services for the real estate industry. RealBiz currently generates revenue from advertising revenues and through real estate agent and broker service fees, membership fees and product sales.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The unaudited interim consolidated financial information furnished herein reflects all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring items, which in the opinion of management are necessary to fairly state RealBiz Media Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries’ (collectively, the “Company” or “we,” “us” or “our”) financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the dates and periods presented and to make such information is not misleading. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been omitted pursuant to rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”); nevertheless, management of the Company believes that the disclosures herein are adequate to make the information presented not misleading.

 

These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended October 31, 2014, contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 13, 2015. The results of operations for the three and six months ended April 30, 2015, are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for any other interim period or the fiscal year ending October 31, 2015.

 

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of unaudited consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the unaudited consolidated financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. If actual results significantly differ from the Company’s estimates, the Company’s financial condition and results of operations could be materially impacted.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

For purposes of balance sheet presentation and reporting of cash flows, the Company considers all unrestricted demand deposits, money market funds and highly liquid debt instruments with an original maturity of less than 90 days to be cash and cash equivalents. There were no cash equivalents at April 30, 2015 and October 31, 2014.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

The Company provides its marketing and promotional services to agents or brokers via a web-based portal that allows for credit card payments. The Company recognizes accounts receivable for amounts uncollected from the credit card service provider at the end of the accounting period. The Company regularly reviews outstanding receivables and provides for estimated losses through an allowance for doubtful accounts. In evaluating the level of established loss reserves, the Company makes judgments regarding its customers’ ability to make required payments, economic events and other factors. As the financial condition of these parties change, circumstances develop or additional information becomes available, adjustments to the allowance for doubtful accounts may be required. The Company maintains reserves for potential credit losses, and such losses traditionally have been within its expectations. The allowance for doubtful accounts at April 30, 2015 and October 31, 2014, respectively is $-0-.

 

Property and Equipment

 

All expenditures on the acquisition for property and equipment are recorded at cost and capitalized as incurred, provided the asset benefits the Company for a period of more than one year. Expenditures on routine repairs and maintenance of property and equipment are charged directly to operating expense. The property and equipment is depreciated based upon its estimated useful life after being placed in service. The estimated useful life of computer equipment is 3 years. When equipment is retired, sold or impaired, the resulting gain or loss is reflected in earnings. The Company incurred depreciation expense of $12,184 and $10,410 for the six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

REALBIZ MEDIA GROUP, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 360-10, “Property, Plant and Equipment”, the Company periodically reviews its long- lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be fully recoverable. The Company recognizes an impairment loss when the sum of expected undiscounted future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the asset. The amount of impairment is measured as the difference between the asset’s estimated fair value and its book value. As of April 30, 2015, the Company did not impair any long-lived assets.

 

Website Development Costs

 

The Company accounts for website development costs in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 350-50 “Website Development Costs”. Accordingly, all costs incurred in the planning stage are expensed as incurred, costs incurred in the website application and infrastructure development stage that meet specific criteria are capitalized and costs incurred in the day to day operation of the website are expensed as incurred.

 

Software Development Costs

 

The Company capitalizes internal software development costs subsequent to establishing technological feasibility of a software application in accordance with guidelines established by "ASC 985-20-25" Accounting for the Costs of Computer Software to Be Sold, Leased, or Otherwise Marketed, requiring certain software development costs to be capitalized upon the establishment of technological feasibility. The establishment of technological feasibility and the ongoing assessment of the recoverability of these costs require considerable judgment by management with respect to certain external factors such as anticipated future revenue, estimated economic life, and changes in software and hardware technologies. Amortization of the capitalized software development costs begins when the product is available for general release to customers. Capitalized costs are amortized based on the greater of (a) the ratio of current gross revenues to the total current and anticipated future gross revenues, or (b) the straight-line method over the remaining estimated economic life of the product and is included in operating expenses in the accompanying statement of operations. For the six months ended April 30, 2015, the Company has capitalized $36,310 of costs associated with the development of a mobile app that has been placed into service on February 4, 2015. Additionally, the Company has capitalized $49,097 of costs associated with the development of a suite of marketing applications that has been placed into service on April 30, 2015, These costs are being amortized over their remaining estimated economic life and the Company incurred amortization expense related to software development costs of $8,741 and $-0- for the six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. This amortization is included in technology and development expenses and general and administrative expenses in the accompanying statement of operations.

 

Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets

 

In accordance with ASC 350-30-65 “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets", the Company assesses the impairment of identifiable intangible assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. Factors the Company considers to be important which could trigger an impairment review include the following:

 

  1. Significant underperformance compared to historical or projected future operating results;

 

  2. Significant changes in the manner or use of the acquired assets or the strategy for the overall business; and

 

  3. Significant negative industry or economic trends.

 

When the Company determines that the carrying value of an intangible may not be recoverable based upon the existence of one or more of the above indicators of impairment and the carrying value of the asset cannot be recovered from projected undiscounted cash flow, the Company records an impairment charge equal to the amount that the book value exceeds fair value. The Company measures fair value based on a projected discounted cash flow method using a discount rate determined by management to be commensurate with the risk inherent to the current business model. Significant management judgment is required in determining whether an indicator of impairment exists and in projecting cash flows. The Company did not consider it necessary to record an impairment charge on its intangible assets during the six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014.

 

Intellectual properties that have finite useful lives are amortized over their useful lives. The Company incurred amortization expense related to website development costs and other intangible assets of $1,018,218 and $750,726 for the six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The Company allocated the amortization of the Nestbuilder website and software development costs for the six months ending April 30, 2015 and 2014 of $263,285 and $62,052, respectively to technology and development with the balance of $754,933 being absorbed in general and administrative expenses.

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Derivative Instruments

 

The Company enters into financing arrangements that consist of freestanding derivative instruments or are hybrid instruments that contain embedded derivative features. The Company accounts for these arrangements in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification topic 815, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities (“ASC 815”) as well as related interpretations of this standard. In accordance with this standard, derivative instruments are recognized as either assets or liabilities in the balance sheet and are measured at fair values with gains or losses recognized in earnings. Embedded derivatives that are not clearly and closely related to the host contract are bifurcated and are recognized at fair value with changes in fair value recognized as either a gain or loss in earnings. The Company determines the fair value of derivative instruments and hybrid instruments based on available market data using appropriate valuation models, considering all of the rights and obligations of each instrument.

 

The Company estimates fair values of derivative financial instruments using various techniques (and combinations thereof) that are considered consistent with the objective measuring fair values. In selecting the appropriate technique, the Company considers, among other factors, the nature of the instrument, the market risks that it embodies and the expected means of settlement. For less complex derivative instruments, such as freestanding warrants, the Company generally uses the Black-Scholes model, adjusted for the effect of dilution, because it embodies all of the requisite assumptions (including trading volatility, estimated terms, dilution and risk free rates) necessary to fair value these instruments. Estimating fair values of derivative financial instruments requires the development of significant and subjective estimates that may, and are likely to, change over the duration of the instrument with related changes in internal and external market factors. In addition, option-based techniques (such as Black-Scholes model) are highly volatile and sensitive to changes in the trading market price of our common stock. Since derivative financial instruments are initially and subsequently carried at fair values, our income (expense) going forward will reflect the volatility in these estimates and assumption changes. Under the terms of the new accounting standard, increases in the trading price of the Company’s common stock and increases in fair value during a given financial quarter result in the application of non-cash derivative expense. Conversely, decreases in the trading price of the Company’s common stock and decreases in trading fair value during a given financial quarter result in the application of non-cash derivative income.

 

Based upon ASC 815-25 the Company has adopted a sequencing approach regarding the application of ASC 815-40 to its outstanding convertible debentures. Pursuant to the sequencing approach, the Company evaluates its contracts based upon earliest issuance date. 

 

Convertible Debt Instruments

 

The Company records debt net of debt discount for beneficial conversion features and warrants, on a relative fair value basis. Beneficial conversion features are recorded pursuant to the Beneficial Conversion and Debt Topics of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. The amounts allocated to warrants and beneficial conversion rights are recorded as debt discount and as additional paid-in-capital. Debt discount is amortized to interest expense over the life of the debt.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company adopted ASC topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” (ASC 820), formerly SFAS No. 157 “Fair Value Measurements,” effective January 1, 2009. ASC 820 defines “fair value” as the price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. There was no impact relating to the adoption of ASC 820 to the Company’s unaudited consolidated financial statements.

 

ASC 820 also describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1: Observable inputs that reflect unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities traded in active markets.

 

Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly.

 

Level 3: Inputs that are generally unobservable. These inputs may be used with internally developed methodologies that result in management’s best estimate of fair value.

 

Financial instruments consist principally of cash, accounts receivable, prepaid expenses, due from affiliates, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and other current liabilities. The carrying amounts of such financial instruments in the accompanying balance sheets approximate their fair values due to their relatively short- term nature. The fair value of long-term debt is based on current rates at which the Company could borrow funds with similar remaining maturities. The carrying amounts approximate fair value. It is management’s opinion that the Company is not exposed to any significant currency or credit risks arising from these financial instruments.

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue when all of the following criteria are met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exits; (2) delivery has occurred or services have been rendered; (3) the Company's price to its customer is fixed or determinable and (4) collectability is reasonably assured.

 

The Company provides its marketing and promotional services to agents or brokers via a web-based portal that allows for credit card payments. Customers may pay a monthly recurring fee or an annual fee. Some customers additionally pay a one-time set up fee. Monthly recurring fees are recognized in the month the service is rendered. Collection of one-time set up fees and annual services fees give rise to recognized monthly revenue in the then-current month as well as deferred revenue liabilities representing the collected fee for services yet to be delivered.

 

Cost of Revenues

 

Cost of revenues includes costs attributable to services sold and delivered. These costs include such items as credit card fees, sales commission to business partners, expenses related to our participation in industry conferences, and public relations expenses.

 

Technology and Development

 

Costs to research and develop our products are expensed as incurred. These costs consist primarily of technology and development related expenses including third party contractor fees and technology software services. Technology and development also includes amortization of capitalized costs of the Nestbuilder website associated with the development of our marketplace and software development costs. The amortization of the Nestbuilder website and software development costs for the six months ending April 30, 2015 and 2014 is $263,285 and $62,052, respectively.

 

Advertising Expense

 

Advertising costs are charged to expense as incurred and are included in selling and promotions expense in the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements. Advertising expense for the six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014 was $94,386 and $55,290, respectively.

 

Share-Based Compensation

 

The Company computes share based payments in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 718-10 “Compensation” (ASC 718-10). ASC 718-10 establishes standards for the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods and services at fair value, focusing primarily on accounting for transactions in which an entity obtains employees services in share-based payment transactions. It also addresses transactions in which an entity incurs liabilities in exchange for goods and services that are based on the fair value of an entity’s equity instruments or that may be settled by the issuance of those equity instruments. In March 2005, the SEC issued SAB No. 107, Share-Based Payment (“SAB 107”) which provides guidance regarding the interaction of ASC 718-10 and certain SEC rules and regulations. The Company has applied the provisions of SAB 107 in its adoption of ASC 718-10. The Company accounts for non-employee share-based awards in accordance with ASC Topic 505-50, Equity Based Payments to Non-Employees. The Company estimates the fair value of stock options by using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

 

Foreign Currency and Other Comprehensive Income (Loss)

 

The functional currency of our foreign subsidiaries is typically the applicable local currency. The translation from the respective foreign currencies to United States Dollars (U.S. Dollar) is performed for balance sheet accounts using current exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date and for income statement accounts using a weighted average exchange rate during the period. Gains or losses resulting from such translation are included as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income. Gains or losses resulting from foreign currency transactions are included in foreign currency income or loss except for the effect of exchange rates on long-term inter-company transactions considered to be a long-term investment, which are accumulated and credited or charged to other comprehensive income.

 

Transaction gains and losses are recognized in our results of operations based on the difference between the foreign exchange rates on the transaction date and on the reporting date. We recognized net foreign exchange loss and gain of $21,536 and $15,707, respectively for six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The foreign currency exchange gains and losses are included as a component of other (income) expense, net, in the accompanying Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations. For the six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014, the decrease and increase in accumulated comprehensive gain was $28,147 and $67,188, respectively.

Foreign Currency and Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) (continued)

 

The exchange rate adopted for the foreign exchange transactions are the rates of exchange as quoted on an OANDA, a Canadian-based foreign exchange company providing currency conversion, online retail foreign exchange trading, online foreign currency transfers, and forex information, internet website. Translation of amount from Canadian dollars into United States dollars was made at the following exchange rates for the respective periods:

 

· As of April 30, 2015 - Canadian dollar $0.83180 to US $1.00

 

· For the six months ended April 30, 2015 - Canadian dollar $0.84782 to US $1.00

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC 740, Accounting for Income Taxes, as clarified by ASC 740-10, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes. Under this method, deferred income taxes are determined based on the estimated future tax effects of differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities and net operating loss and tax credit carryforwards given the provisions of enacted tax laws. Deferred income tax provisions and benefits are based on changes to the assets or liabilities from year to year. In providing for deferred taxes, the Company considers tax regulations of the jurisdictions in which the Company operates, estimates of future taxable income, and available tax planning strategies. If tax regulations, operating results or the ability to implement tax-planning strategies vary, adjustments to the carrying value of deferred tax assets and liabilities may be required. Valuation allowances are recorded related to deferred tax assets based on the “more likely than not” criteria of ASC 740.

 

ASC 740-10 requires that the Company recognize the financial statement benefit of a tax position only after determining that the relevant tax authority would more likely than not sustain the position following an audit. For tax positions meeting the “more-likely-than-not” threshold, the amount recognized in the unaudited consolidated financial statements is the largest benefit that has a greater than 50 percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the relevant tax authority.

 

Earnings Per Share

 

Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.

 

Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock, common stock equivalents and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during each period. Diluted loss per common share is considered to be equal to basic because it is anti-dilutive. The Company’s common stock equivalents include the following:

 

    April 30,
2015
 
Series A convertible preferred stock issued and outstanding     50,570,726  
Series B convertible preferred stock issued and outstanding     300,000  
Series C convertible preferred stock issued and outstanding     -0-  
Warrants to purchase common stock issued, outstanding and exercisable         4,244,530  
Shares on convertible promissory notes         13,017,079  
      68,132,335  

 

Concentrations, Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Company’s operations are related to the real estate industry and its prospects for success are tied indirectly to interest rates and the general housing and business climates in the United States.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain reclassifications have been made in the unaudited consolidated financial statements for comparative purposes.  These reclassifications have no effect on the results of operations or financial position of the Company.

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

During the current fiscal quarter the Company discovered that it has not been properly reporting a non-controlling interest in one of its subsidiaries. The effect of this was that the consolidated balance sheet at October 31, 2014 did not include a caption in the stockholders’ equity section for non-controlling interest for $37,509 and a caption for “Total RealBiz Media Group, Inc. stockholders’ equity” of $1,518,589, with Total Stockholders’ Equity remaining unchanged at $1,556,098.

 

Also, additional paid in capital was overstated by $1,157,583 and accumulated other comprehensive income was overstated by $6,006 offset by accumulated deficit being understated by $1,126,080 and noncontrolling interest being understated by $37,509. Net loss attributable to common stockholders was overstated by $129,991 and $70,607 for the three and six months ended April 30, 2014 offset by net loss attributable to non-controlling interest being understated by those amounts. This was corrected in this filing. The Company evaluated SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin #108, and applied a dual method to evaluate if the adjustment was material. Under the dual method, both a “rollover” method and an “iron curtain” method were applied. In both methods, the adjustment was not material to the comparative three and six month period ended April 30, 2014 and the year ended October 31, 2014. On June 18, 2015, the Company exchanged 4,000,000 common shares to obtain the remaining 15% interest in the subsidiary which eliminates the non-controlling interests, see footnote number 13 “subsequent events.” As a result, the following reclassification was made for the year ended October 31, 2014 and the three and six months ended April 30, 2014:

NOTE 3: GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.

 

The Company has incurred net losses of $2,759,256 for the six months ended April 30, 2015. At April 30, 2015, the Company had a working capital deficit of $2,181,067 and an accumulated deficit of $16,879,823. It is management’s opinion that these facts raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern without additional debt or equity financing. The unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts nor to the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

In order to meet its working capital needs through the next twelve months, the Company may consider plans to raise additional funds through the issuance of additional shares of common or preferred stock and or through the issuance of debt instruments. Although the Company intends to obtain additional financing to meet its cash needs, the Company may be unable to secure any additional financing on terms that are favorable or acceptable to it, if at all.

NOTE 8: CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE

 

During the six months ended April 30, 2015, the Company:

 

· Between December 2014 and April 2015, the Company received $1,130,000 in proceeds and issued two (2) year, 12% convertible promissory notes maturing on December 31, 2016 to various third party investors. Interest shall accrue on the principal of the note at a rate equal to 12.0% per annum in cash and 12.0% in stock per annum based upon $0.10 (ten) cents per share. The noteholder, at their option, shall have the right, but not the obligation, at any time and from time to time, to convert all or any portion of the principal and interest into fully paid and non-assessable shares of Company common stock at the conversion price of $0.10 per share.

 

The Company evaluated the conversion feature of the promissory notes and determined the Company's common stock exceeded the conversion price as stated in each of the convertible promissory notes. Management determined that the favorable exercise price represented a beneficial conversion feature. Using the intrinsic value method at the convertible promissory note date, a total discount of $775,780 was recognized. The discount is being amortized over the terms of the convertible promissory notes using the straight-line method, which approximated the effective interest method. During the six months ending April 30, 2015, $110,883 of the debt discount has been amortized and recorded as interest expense.

 

Stated interest charged to operations relating to these notes for the six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014 amounted to $85,700 and $-0-, respectively. For the six months ending April 30, 2015, the Company converted $60,000, of a previously issued convertible promissory note, in principal and issued 600,000 shares of its common stock and the remaining principal balance of convertible promissory notes is $1,130,000 and the remaining un-amortized discount balance was $664,897.

 

· On October 20, 2014, the Company issued a two (2) year, 7.5% convertible promissory note maturing on October 19, 2016 with a non-related third party investor valued at $150,000 and received $95,000 in cash proceeds net of $55,000 in loan origination fees included in the calculation of the debt discount. As an incentive, the Company issued 300,000 warrants to the holder with a two-year life and a fair value of approximately $14,760 to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.001 par value, per share, at an exercise price of $0.17 per share included as part of the debt discount. The fair value of the warrants was estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following assumptions: risk-free interest rate between 0.94% and 1.51%, dividend yield of -0-%, volatility factor between 115.05% and 124.65% and an expected life of 1.5 years. The value of these warrants was charged to interest expense with the offset to additional paid-in-capital. The noteholder, at their option, has the right from time to time, and at any time on or prior to the later of (i) the Maturity Date and (ii) the date of payment of the Default Amount, each in respect of the remaining outstanding principal amount of this Note to convert all or any part of the outstanding and unpaid principal amount of this Note into fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock at the Conversion Price. The conversion price means the lower of the fixed conversion price of $0.20 or the variable conversion price. The variable conversion price shall mean 65% multiplied by the lowest of the VWAP (volume weighted average price) of the common stock during the twelve (12) consecutive trading day period ending on and including the trading day immediately preceding the conversion date.

 

Additionally, the Company accounted for the embedded conversion option liability in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification topic 815, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities (“ASC 815”) as well as related interpretation of this standard. In accordance with this standard, derivative instruments are recognized as either assets or liabilities in the balance sheet and are measured at fair values with gains or losses recognized in earnings. Embedded derivatives that are not clearly and closely related to the host contract are bifurcated and are recognized at fair value with changes in fair value recognized as either a gain or loss in earnings. The Company determined the fair value of derivative instruments and hybrid instruments based on available market data using appropriate valuation models, giving consideration to all of the rights and obligations of each instrument. The fair value of embedded conversion option liability at April 30, 2015 was valued using the Black-Scholes model, resulting in a fair value of $217,362, previously valued at $571,630 resulting in a gain in the change in the fair value of derivatives totaling $345,268 for the three months ending April 30, 2015. The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes pricing model at April 30, 2015 are as follows: (1) dividend yield of 0%; (2) expected volatility of 203.06%, (3) risk-free interest rate of 0.58%, and (4) expected life of 1.47 years. During the six months ending April 30, 2015, $37,105 of the debt discount has been amortized and recorded as interest expense. Stated interest charged to operations relating to this note for the six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014 amounted to $7,880 and $-0-, respectively. As of April 30, 2015, the remaining principal balance is $150,000 and the remaining un-amortized discount balance was $110,290.

 

NOTE 9: LOANS PAYABLE

 

During the six months ending April 30, 2015, the Company received $75,000 in proceeds from a related party and issued a 6% promissory note due and payable on or before April 30, 2015 and made a $10,000 principal only payment. The principal balance as of April 30, 2015 is as follows:

NOTE 12: FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT AND DISCLOSURE

 

The Company has adopted ASC 820, Fair Market Measurement and Disclosures including the application of the statement to non-recurring, non-financial assets and liabilities. The adoption of ASC 820 did not have a material impact on the Company’s fair value measurements. ASC 820 defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value into six broad levels as follows:

 

Level 1 - Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2 - Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

Fair Value Measurements at April 30, 2015 is summarized below:

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the attached consolidated unaudited financial statements and notes thereto, and our consolidated audited financial statements and related notes for our fiscal year ended October 31, 2014 found in our Annual Report on Form 10-K. In addition to historical information, the following discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Where possible, we have tried to identify these forward looking statements by using words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “intends,” or similar expressions. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements due to important factors and risks including, but not limited to, those set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

Some of the statements made in this section of our report are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements generally relate to and are based upon our current plans, expectations, assumptions and projections about future events. Our management currently believes that the various plans, expectations, and assumptions reflected in or suggested by these forward-looking statements are reasonable. Nevertheless, all forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties and our actual future results may be materially different from the plans, objectives or expectations, or our assumptions and projections underlying our present plans, objectives and expectations, which are expressed in this section.

 

In light of the foregoing, prospective investors are cautioned that the forward-looking statements included in this filing may ultimately prove to be inaccurate—even materially inaccurate. Because of the significant uncertainties inherent in such forward-looking statements, the inclusion of such information should not be regarded as a representation or warranty by RealBiz Media Group, Inc. or any other person that our objectives, plans, expectations or projections that are contained in this filing will be achieved in any specified time frame, if ever. We undertake no obligation to publicly release any revisions to the forward-looking statements or reflect events or circumstances after the date of this document. The risks disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2014 filed with the SEC on February 13, 2015 (the “Form 10-K”) should be considered in evaluating our prospects and future performance.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations are based upon its consolidated unaudited financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these unaudited financial statements requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent liabilities. On an on-going basis, management evaluates past judgments and estimates, including those related to bad debts, potential impairment of intangible assets, accrued liabilities, and contingencies. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. The accounting policies and related risks described in the Company’s Form 10-K are those that depend most heavily on these judgments and estimates. As of April 30, 2015, there had been no material changes to any of the critical accounting policies contained therein.

 

Results of Operations

 

Three months ended April 30, 2015 compared to three months ended April 30, 2014.

 

Revenues

 

Our total revenues increased 27% to $321,388 for the three months ended April 30, 2015, compared to $252,560 for the three months ended April 30, 2014, an increase of $68,828. The increase in sales is the reflection of additional revenue reported and collected from our Century 21 Corporate automated videos contract pursuant to which our technology automatically uploads videos to their website along with the additional income added from the current ERA Corporate pursuant to which our technology hosts and stores videos automatically and posts them to their corporate website. The company expects revenue to continue to increase due to new product introductions and full implementation of several enterprise level contracts.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Our operating expenses, which include cost of revenue, technology and development, salaries and benefits, selling and promotion and general and administrative expenses increased 25% to $1,598,132 for the three months ended April 30, 2015, compared to $1,276,331 for the three months ended April 30, 2014, an increase of $321,801.

 

This increase was substantially due to an increase in consulting fees of $115,108 and an increase in technology and development of $32,413, and to a lesser extent an increase in selling and promotion of $59,888, an increase in salaries and benefits of $51,541, an increase in rent of $44,276, an increase in the amortization of intangible assets of $102,720 and an increase in travel and entertainment of $25,055; this was offset by a decrease in webhosting of $52,235 and to a lessor extent a decrease in audit and accounting of $49,461, a decrease in miscellaneous expense of $31,890 and a decrease in cost of revenue of $2,305.

 

The current financials reflect costs associated with varying legacy agreements that have been terminated.  Most importantly, the Company’s dependence on consultants has been curtailed, non-productive lines of business have been eliminated and technology expenses have been brought entirely in house.  General and Administrative expenses (excluding non-cash amortization) have been significantly reduced to an estimated $145,000 per quarter.

 

Similarly, Technology and Development expenses were higher due to various platform development non-cash amortization and the elimination of costly consultants and employees, which should reflect better cash flow in future quarters.

 

In curtailing the use of consultants and re-focusing our technology on core competencies, the Company has refined its product lines and introduced new, more advanced products to market.  The financial impact of these products will become prevalent in the next six months to one year term as agent adoption and utilization increases.

Other Income (Expenses)

 

Our other income increased 19% to $182,560 for the three months ended April 30, 2015, compared to $154,026 of other income for the three months ended April 30, 2014, an increase of $28,534. This increase was substantially due to a gain on change of fair value of derivatives of $354,268 and to a lesser extent an increase in foreign exchange gain of $35,142; this was offset by an increase of interest expense of $183,861 and to a lesser extent a decrease other income of $180,791.

 

Net Loss

 

We had a net loss of $1,094,184 for the three months ended April 30, 2015, compared to net loss of $869,745 for the three months ended April 30, 2014, an increase of $224,439. The increase in net loss from 2014 to 2015 was substantially due to the an increase in interest expense of $183,861, an increase of other expense of $180,791, an increase in consulting fees of $115,108, an increase in amortization of intangible assets of $102,720, an increase in technology and development of $32,413 offset by the decrease in the loss on change in the fair value of derivatives in the amount of $354,268. The combination of cost cutting without impacting the Company’s many product lines or its ability to produce and market new products, and the already experienced increase in revenues has strengthened the Company’s position. Pro forma cash flows (excluding amortization) is anticipated to produce profitability in the next fiscal quarter, a first for the Company in nearly a decade.

 

Results of Operations

 

Six months ended April 30, 2015 compared to six months ended April 30, 2014.

 

Revenues

 

Our total revenues increased 23% to $614,044 for the six months ended April 30, 2015, compared to $498,614 for the six months ended April 30, 2014, an increase of $115,430. The increase in sales is the reflection of additional revenue reported and collected from our Century 21 Corporate automated videos contract pursuant to which our technology automatically uploads videos to their website along with the additional income added from the current ERA Corporate pursuant to which our technology hosts and stores videos automatically and posts them to their corporate website. The company expects revenue to continue to increase due to new product introductions and full implementation of several enterprise level contracts.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Our operating expenses, which include cost of revenue, technology and development, salaries and benefits, selling and promotion and general and administrative expenses increased to $3,282,161 for the six months ended April 30, 2015, compared to $2,981,005 for the six months ended April 30, 2014, an increase of 10% or $301,156.

 

This increase was substantially due to an increase in technology and development of $197,764 and to a lesser extent: an increase in salaries and benefits of $130,345, an increase in investor relations of $97,119, an increase in the amortization of intangible assets of $267,492, an increase in rent of $37,994 and an increase in selling and promotions of $10,939; this was offset by a decrease in consulting fees of $270,689 and to a lesser extent a decrease in web hosting fees of $51,387, a decrease in travel and entertainment of $37,291, a decrease in miscellaneous expenses of $39,277 and a decrease in insurance of $30,193

  

The increases in technology and development are partially due to four months in the prior year where expenses were capitalized as opposed to expensed as products were being developed. Decreases in general and administrative are due to the value of the shares given to consultants as compared to the prior year.

 

The current financials reflect costs associated with varying legacy agreements that have been terminated.  Most importantly, the Company’s dependence on consultants has been curtailed, non-productive lines of business have been eliminated and technology expenses have been brought entirely in house.  General and Administrative expenses (excluding non-cash amortization) have been significantly reduced to an estimated $145,000 per quarter.

 

Similarly, Technology and Development expenses were higher due to various platform development non-cash amortization and the elimination of costly consultants and employees, which should reflect better cash flow in future quarters.

 

In curtailing the use of consultants and re-focusing our technology on core competencies, the Company has refined its product lines and introduced new, more advanced products to market.  The financial impact of these products will become prevalent in the next six months to one year term as agent adoption and utilization increases.

 

Other Income (Expenses)

 

Our other expense increased 157% to $91,139 of other expenses for the six months ended April 30, 2015, compared to $160,668 of other income for the six months ended April 30, 2014, an increase of $251,807. This increase was substantially due to the an increase in interest expense of $232,376 and to a lesser extent an increase in other expense of $180,791; this was offset by an increase in the gain on change in the fair value of derivatives of $87,858 and to a lesser extent an increase in gain on legal settlement of accounts payable of $36,259 and an increase in foreign exchange gain of $37,243.

We had a net loss of $2,759,256 for the six months ended April 30, 2015, compared to net loss of $2,321,723 for the six months ended April 30, 2014, an increase of 19% or $437,533. The increase in net loss from 2014 to 2015 was substantially due to the an increase in interest expense of $232,376, an increase in other expense of $180,791, an increase in technology and development of $197,764 and salaries and benefits of $130,345 and an increase in amortization intangible assets of $264,492; offset by the decrease in consulting fees of $270,689 and the decrease in the loss on change in the fair value of derivatives in the amount of $87,858.

 

The combination of cost cutting without impacting the Company’s many product lines or its ability to produce and market new products, and the already experienced increase in revenues has strengthened the Company’s position. Pro forma cash flows (excluding amortization) is anticipated to produce profitability in the next fiscal quarter, a first for the Company in nearly a decade.

 

Assets and Employees; Research and Development

 

We do not currently anticipate purchasing any equipment or other assets in the near term, however, as we expand operations, we will need additional equipment and employees to create and market our products.

Liquidity and Capital Resources; Anticipated Financing Needs

 

At April 30, 2015, the Company had $117,642 cash on-hand, an increase of $97,756 from $20,066 at the end of fiscal 2014 and a working capital deficit of $2,181,067. The increase is primarily due to the increase of proceeds received from convertible promissory notes offset by the payment of operating expenses.

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $1,086,182 for the six months ended April 30, 2015, a decrease of $754,620 from $1,840,802 used during the six months ended April 30, 2014.

 

This cash used in operations mainly consisted of an increase in net loss offset by the recognition of a loss on conversion of NXOI Preferred Series shares and debt into common shares, amortization and depreciation, due from affiliates and a decrease in stock based compensation and consulting fees and a gain on change in fair value of derivative liabilities.

 

We have financed our operations since inception primarily through proceeds from equity financings and revenue derived from operations. During the six months ended April 30, 2015, we raised $1,315,000 from issuance of convertible promissory notes, short term advances and from the sale of common stock and warrants. Our continued operations will primarily depend on our ability to raise additional capital from various sources including equity and debt financings, as well as our revenue derived from operations. We can give no assurances that any additional capital that we are able to obtain will be sufficient to meet our needs or will be on favorable terms. Based on our current plans, we believe that our cash provided from the above sources will be sufficient to enable us to meet our planned operating needs for the next 12 months.

 

We have based our estimate on assumptions that may prove to be wrong. We may need to obtain additional funds sooner or in greater amounts than we currently anticipate. Potential sources of financing include strategic relationships, public or private sales of our shares or debt and other sources. We may seek to access the public or private equity markets when conditions are favorable due to our long-term capital requirements. We do not have any committed sources of financing at this time, and it is uncertain whether additional funding will be available when we need it on terms that will be acceptable to us, or at all. If we raise funds by selling additional shares of common stock or other securities convertible into common stock, the ownership interest of our existing stockholders will be diluted. If we are not able to obtain financing when needed, we may be unable to carry out our business plan. As a result, we may have to significantly limit our operations and our business, financial condition and results of operations would be materially harmed. We have recently incurred approximately $1.8 million of convertible debt which may limit our ability to raise additional funds.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

We do not hold any derivative instruments and do not engage in any hedging activities.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the ‘‘Exchange Act’’). Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by an issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Commission's rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to the issuer'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, because of the Company’s limited resources and limited number of employees, management concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective as of April 30, 2015 .

 

Management has identified control deficiencies regarding the lack of segregation of duties and the need for a stronger internal control environment. Management of the Company believes that these material weaknesses are due to the small size of the Company’s accounting staff. The small size of the Company’s accounting staff may prevent adequate controls in the future, such as segregation of duties, due to the cost/benefit of such remediation.

 

To mitigate the current limited resources and limited employees, we rely heavily on direct management oversight of transactions, along with the use of external legal and accounting professionals. As we grow, we expect to increase our number of employees, which should enable us to implement adequate segregation of duties within the internal control framework.

 

These control deficiencies could result in a misstatement of account balances that would result in a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement to our consolidated financial statements may not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. In light of this material weakness, we performed additional analyses and procedures in order to conclude that our consolidated financial statements for the quarter ended April 30, 2015 , included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q were fairly stated in accordance with US GAAP. Accordingly, management believes that despite our material weaknesses, our consolidated unaudited financial statements for the quarter ended April 30, 2015 are fairly stated, in all material respects, in accordance with US GAAP.

Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent all errors and all fraud. 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.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, during our most recently completed fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
