NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

JANUARY 31, 2017

 

NOTE 1: NATURE OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Nature of Business

 

We are currently engaged in two primary businesses, which include providing digital media and marketing services for the real estate industry and the international food business. Our food business is focused on international food distribution of nuts, fruits, honey, and meats. We intend to divest the real estate business during this fiscal year.

 

Food Products

 

Verus Foods, Inc. (“Verus”) a Nevada corporation, and our wholly owned subsidiary was incorporated in January 2017, and is an international supplier of consumer food products. Verus markets under its own brand primarily to supermarkets, hotels, and other members of the wholesale trade. In 2017, Verus is pursuing a three-pronged development program through the addition of cold-storage facilities, product line expansion, and new vertical farm-to-market operations. Verus’ initial focus is on frozen foods, particularly meat, poultry, seafood, vegetables, and french fries. Verus has a significant regional presence in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and sub-Saharan Africa (excluding Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”)-restricted nations), with deep roots in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. In January, 2017 Verus received a contract valued at $78 million to supply beef to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, which includes the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. The first orders under this contract were shipped in February, 2017.

 

Real Estate

 

We have generated revenue from service fees (video creation and production and website hosting (ReachFactor)) and product sales (Nestbuilder Agent 2.0 and Microvideo app). We were formed through the merging of three divisions: (i) our fully licensed real estate division (formerly known as Webdigs); (ii) our TV media contracts (Home Preview Channel /Extraordinary Vacation Homes) division; and (iii) our Real Estate Virtual Tour and Media group (RealBiz 360). The assets of these divisions were used to create a new suite of real estate products and services that create stickiness through the utilization of video, social media, and loyalty programs. At the core of our programs is our proprietary video creation technology which allows for an automated conversion of data (text and pictures of home listings) to a video with voice and music. We provide video search, storage, and marketing capabilities on multiple platform dynamics for web, mobile, and TV. Once a home, personal or community video is created using our proprietary technology, it can be published to social media, email or distributed to multiple real estate websites, broadband or television for consumer viewing.

 

Products and Services :

 

We currently offer the following products and services:

 

Enterprise Video Production : We service some of the largest and well known franchisor accounts in the North America Real Estate Market in compiling listings into a Video format and distributing to those franchisor’s websites, brokers and agents and lead generation platforms 24/7. This core area significantly contributes to our growth not only in this core service but continues to allow us access to national databases and directly agents and brokers to allow us access to upgrades and upsell other core products and services. We currently have the ability to produce over 15,000 videos per day and have exclusive agreements with key players such as Century21 Scheetz and ERA systems.

 

Nestbuilder Agent 2.0 (formerly PowerAgent) : Nestbuilder Agent 2.0 is a newly developed comprehensive marketing toolset for the professional real estate agent which utilizes our proprietary video technology to allow any agent to create videos for their listings, edit them with music and an introduction and market the videos through multiple sources. This product is powered by an intuitive CRM (contact management) and has been designed to allow agents to extend their marketing reach through social media management, email marketing and web site syndication. In addition, the iOs and Android apps work in conjunction with Nestbuilder Agent 2.0 allowing the agent to take many of the capabilities mobile, right to where the asset is located. Early reviews of this product from industry experts have been extremely favorable. We intend to sell this product via a monthly subscription model.

 

The Virtual Tour (VT) and Microvideo App (MVA): These programs were developed and implemented to allow agents to access specific video based product strategies that are designed specifically to increase the SEO rank and traffic credit to real estate franchise systems and/or their brokers. The MVA is a proprietary video widget marketing application designed to deliver video and integrate SEO strategies, traffic generation, e-mail, lead generation with mobile-friendly viewing. This solution gives those franchises and brokers a much-needed tool to lower their cost of prospect acquisition.

 

ReachFactor : Our social media and marketing platform under the “ReachFactor” brand name offers a variety of solutions to agents and brokers such as web design and web hosting, digital ad campaigns, blogging, social media management, reputation management and search engine optimization.

NOTE 1: NATURE OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION, continued

 

NestBuilder Website Portal : We provide a consumer real estate portal at www.nestbuilder.com which contains over 1.5 million listings. Unlike other leaders in the space that agents are seeking alternatives to, NestBuilder focuses on building agent’s brands and delivering high-quality leads. They achieve this by offering fully customizable webpages in NestBuilder Agent that will follow their homebuyer throughout the home search, ultimately turning NestBuilder.com into each agent’s very own national portal. We provide this website free of charge to consumer and agent.

 

Nestbuilder Agent : This agent-only platform allows agents to claim and customize their own web page to be used as a marketing platform. This platform interacts with nestbuilder.com site allowing agents to claim their listings and then create customized listing pages, as well as being able to pull other MLS property listings to create specialized marketing messages. Additionally, the agent can view the effectiveness of their marketing efforts through a dashboard that shows multiple statistics including number of views, time spent, origination and lead generation. This platform is provided free of charge and empowers the real estate agent with content and assets that they can use to pursue prospects and generate leads.

 

Ezflix Mobile App : The ezflix app is a free mobile/web video editor that pre-integrates with an agent’s listing data, allowing them to edit all of their listing’s data, and convert them into video with live video interstitial capabilities, audio recording and music. Ezflix can then share videos to all social media, email, and multiple other real estate portals including NestBuilder (www.nestbuilder.com) thereby giving agents a way to personalize their listing videos with entertaining local relevant content. This application is available in both Web and Mobile, was initially launched in both the Android and iOS versions in January and February 2015. This platform as it evolves will combine our VT (Virtual Tour) and MVA (Microvideo App) platform into one solution and distribute to multiple partners and resellers including Photographer and Videographer service providers’ network. This product integration has been integrated with our Nestbuilder Agent 2.0 product released in January 2016.

 

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 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 financial statements for the year ended October 31, 2016, contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 10, 2017. The results of operations for the three months ended January 31, 2017, are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for any other interim period or the fiscal year ending October 31, 2017.

 

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. Significant estimates include the collectability of accounts receivable, valuation of derivative liabilities, and the deferred tax asset valuation allowance.

 

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 January 31, 2017 and October 31, 2016.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

JANUARY 31, 2017

 

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

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 January 31, 2017 and October 31, 2016, 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.

 

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. During the three months ended January 31, 2017, the Company did not impair any long-lived assets.

 

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. 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.

 

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.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

JANUARY 31, 2017

 

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company has adopted ASC topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” (ASC 820), formerly SFAS No. 157 “Fair Value Measurements”. 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.

 

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.

 

Technology and Development

 

Costs to research and develop our products are expensed as incurred. These costs consist of primarily of technology and development related expenses including third party contractor fees and technology software services.

 

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. The company has not incurred any advertising expenses for the three months ended January 31, 2017 and 2016.

 

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.

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

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 gain of $0 and $9,450 for three months ended January 31, 2017 and 2016, 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 three months ended January 31, 2017 and 2016, the change in accumulated other comprehensive loss was ($32,005) and ($6,082), respectively.

 

The exchange rate adopted for the foreign exchange transactions are the rates of exchange as quoted on an 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 January 31, 2017 - Canadian dollar $0.7643 to US $1.00
     
  For the three months ended January 31, 2017 - Canadian dollar $0.749648 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:

 

    January 31, 2017  
Series A convertible preferred stock issued and outstanding     5,000  
Series C convertible preferred stock issued and outstanding     16,000,000  
Warrants to purchase common stock issued, outstanding and exercisable     17,036,467  
Shares on convertible promissory notes     -  
      33,041,467

Concentrations, Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Company’s operations are related to the real estate and international food industries, and its prospects for success are tied indirectly to interest rates, the general housing and business climates in the United States, and the worldwide demand for the Company’s food products.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In January 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) 2017-04 “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): “Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment”, which simplifies the measurement of a potential goodwill impairment charge by eliminating the requirement to calculate an implied fair value of the goodwill based on the fair value of a reporting unit’s other assets and liabilities. The new guidance eliminates the implied fair value method and instead measures a potential impairment charge based on the excess of a reporting unit’s carrying value compared to its fair value. The impairment charge cannot exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. The standard is effective for the Company on May 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted. Based on the Company’s most recent annual goodwill impairment test completed in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, the Company expects no initial impact on adoption.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01 “Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business”, which clarifies the definition of a business in order to allow for the evaluation of whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions or disposals of assets or business. The standard is effective for the Company on May 1, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The future impact of ASU 2017-01 will be dependent upon the nature of future acquisitions or dispositions made by the Company.

 

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-16 “Income Taxes (Topic 740): Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other than Inventory”, which simplifies the accounting for the income tax consequences of intra-entity transfers of assets other than inventory. Current GAAP prohibits the recognition of current and deferred income taxes for an intra-entity asset transfer until the asset has been sold to an outside party. The new guidance states that an entity should recognize the income tax consequences of an intra-entity transfer of an asset other than inventory when the transfer occurs. Consequently, the amendments in this Standard eliminate the exception for an intra-entity transfer of an asset other than inventory. The standard is effective for the Company on May 1, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The Company expects no initial impact on the adoption.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15 “Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments”, which provides clarification on classifying a variety of activities within the Statement of Cash flows. The standard is effective for the Company on May 1, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact the new guidance will have on its statement of cash flows.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09 “Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting”, which simplifies the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including income taxes, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. The new guidance also allows an entity to make an accounting policy election to account for forfeitures when they occur or to estimate the number of awards that are expected to vest with a subsequent true up to actual forfeitures (current GAAP). The standard is effective for the Company on May 1, 2017, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact the new guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02 “Leases (Topic 842)”. ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize most leases on the balance sheet which will result in an increase in reported assets and liabilities. The recognition of expenses within the income statement is consistent with the existing lease accounting standards. There are no significant changes in the new standard for lessors under operating leases. The standard is effective for the Company on May 1, 2019 with early adoption permitted. Adoption requires application of the new guidance for all periods presented. The Company is currently assessing the impact the new guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17 “Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes”. To simplify the presentation of deferred income taxes, the amendments in this update require that all deferred tax assets and liabilities, including those previously classified as current, be classified as a single noncurrent line in a classified statement of financial position. The amendments in the standard will align the presentation of deferred income tax assets and liabilities with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”). The standard is effective for the Company on May 1, 2017 with early adoption permitted. The Company will adopt the new guidance on May 1, 2017. The adoption will have no impact on the Company’s results of operations or statement of cash flows.

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 a net loss of $1,003,452 for the three months ended January 31, 2017. At January 31, 2017, the Company had a working capital deficit of $621,409 and an accumulated deficit of $22,670,045. It is management’s opinion that these facts raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. 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 our 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 4: RESTRICTED CASH

 

At January 31, 2016 the company posted a surety bond with the California Department of Labor in the amount of $27,977 as required in connection with an appeal of an assessment relating to an employment matter. This matter was settled before the California Labor Board and the surety bond was released and funds were returned to the Company during fiscal 2016. The Company has no restricted cash balance as of January 31, 2017.

 

NOTE 5: PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT

 

At January 31, 2017, the Company’s property and equipment are as follows:

Accrued payroll and commissions     21,892  
Due to officer     24,390  
Total accounts payable and accrued expenses   $ 620,150  

 

NOTE 7: DUE FROM/TO AFFILIATES

 

During the normal course of business, the Company receives and/or makes advances for operating expenses and various debt obligation conversions to/from our former parent Company, Monaker Group, Inc. (“Monaker”). As a result of these transactions the Company is due $1,287,517 as of January 31, 2017 and October 31, 2016, respectively. Management has elected to record an allowance against the entire amount due from affiliate. The allowance was required due to the uncertainty of the collectability of the outstanding balance (See Note 12).

Note 8: Segment reporting

 

The Company has two reportable segments: digital media and marketing services for the real estate industry and the international food business. The Real Estate segment provides service in the form of (video creation and production and website hosting (ReachFactor)) and product sales (Nestbuilder Agent 2.0 and Microvideo app). The Food Business segment is an international supplier of consumer food products, marketing its own brand primarily to supermarkets, hotels, and other members of the wholesale trade.

 

The Company evaluates segment performance based on segment income (loss) before taxes. Costs excluded from segment income (loss) before taxes and reported as “Other” consist of corporate general and administrative costs which are not allocable to the three reportable segments. Legal fee expense incurred for general corporate matters are considered a component of the Other segment. Legal fee expense specific to other segments’ activities has been allocated to those segments.

 

Management of the Company assesses assets on a consolidated basis only and, therefore, assets by reportable segment have not been included in the reportable segments below. The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those described in the summary of significant accounting policies contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2016.

Convertible Preferred Stock Series A

 

On October 14, 2014, the Company filed a certificate of amendment pursuant to the July 31st, 2014 Board of Directors approval to increase the Preferred A shares from 100,000,000 shares to 120,000,000 shares. As of January 31, 2017 and October 31, 2016, the Company had 100,000 and 45,188,600 shares, respectively, of Convertible Preferred Stock Series A issued and outstanding. The preferred shares were issued at $.001 par and bear dividends at a rate of 10% per annum payable on a quarterly basis when declared by the board of directors. Dividends accumulate whether or not they have been declared by the board. At the election of the Company, Preferred Dividends may be converted into Series A Stock, with each converted share having a value equal to the market price per share, subject to adjustment for stock splits. In order to exercise such option, the Company delivers written notice to the holder. Each share of Series A Stock is convertible at the option of the holder thereof at any time into a number of shares of Common Stock determined by dividing the Stated Value of a $1 per share by the Conversion Price then in effect. The conversion price for the Series A Stock is equal to $1.00 per share. Each holder of Series A stock shall be entitled to one vote for each whole share of common stock that would be issuable upon conversion of such share on the record date for determining eligibility to participate in the action being taken.

Convertible Preferred Stock Series A, continued

 

In the event of (a) the sale, conveyance, exchange, exclusive license, lease or other disposition of all or substantially all of the intellectual property or assets of the Company, (b) any acquisition of the Company by means of consolidation, stock exchange, stock sale, merger of other form of corporate reorganization of the Company with any other entity in which the Company’s stockholders prior to the consolidation or merger own less than a majority of the voting securities of the surviving entity, or (c) the winding up or dissolution of the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary (each such event in clause (a), (b) or (c) a “liquidation event”), the Board shall determine in good faith the amount legally available for distribution to stockholders after taking into account the distribution of assets among, or payment thereof over to, creditors of the Company (the “net assets available for distribution”). The holders of the Series A stock then outstanding shall be entitled to be paid out of the net assets available for Distribution (or the consideration received in such transaction) before any payment or distribution shall be made to the holders of any class of preferred stock ranking junior to the Series A Stock or to the Common Stock, an amount for each share of Series A Stock equal to all accrued and unpaid Preferred Dividends plus the Stated Value, as adjusted (the “Series A Liquidation Amount”).

 

In September 2015, the Company entered into an agreement with the holders of our Series A Preferred Stock under which they agreed to waive and cancel any further dividends owing on the Series A Preferred from and after May 1, 2015 in exchange for our agreement to pay all accrued dividends through April 30, 2015.

On July 31, 2014, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the creation of a new Series B Preferred stock and on October 14, 2014 a certificate of designation was filed with the state of Delaware designating 1,000,000 shares with a par value of $0.001, a stated value of $5.00 per share and convertible into the Company’s common stock at $0.05 per share. The Series B Preferred stock will bear dividends at a rate of 10% per annum and shall accrue on the stated value of such shares of the Series B Stock. Dividends accrue whether or not they have been declared by the Board of Directors. At the election of the Company, it may satisfy its obligations hereunder to pay dividends on the Series B stock by issuing shares of common stock to the holders of Series B stock on a uniform and prorated basis. Each share of Series B Stock is convertible at the option of the holder thereof at any time into a number of shares of Common Stock determined by dividing the Stated Value by the Conversion Price then in effect. The conversion price for the Series B Stock is equal to $0.05 per share. Each holder of Series B stock shall be entitled to the number of votes equal to two hundred (200) votes for each shares of Series B stock held by them.

NOTE 10: STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY, continued

 

Convertible Preferred Stock Series B, continued

 

In the event of (a) the sale, conveyance, exchange, exclusive license, lease or other disposition of all or substantially all of the intellectual property or assets of the Company, (b) any acquisition of the Company by means of consolidation, stock exchange, stock sale, merger of other form of corporate reorganization of the Company with any other entity in which the Company’s stockholders prior to the consolidation or merger own less than a majority of the voting securities of the surviving entity, or (c) the winding up or dissolution of the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary (each such event in clause (a), (b) or (c) a “liquidation event”), the Board shall determine in good faith the amount legally available for distribution to stockholders after taking into account the distribution of assets among, or payment thereof over to, creditors of the Company (the “net assets available for distribution”). The holders of the Series B stock then outstanding shall be entitled to be paid out of the net assets available for Distribution (or the consideration received in such transaction) before any payment or distribution shall be made to the holders of any class of preferred stock ranking junior to the Series B Stock or to the Common Stock, an amount for each share of Series B Stock equal to all accrued and unpaid Preferred Dividends plus the Stated Value, as adjusted (the “Series B Liquidation Amount”). There were no Series B Preferred stock outstanding at January 31, 2016 and October 31, 2015.

 

Convertible Preferred Stock Series C

 

Pursuant to authority granted by our certificate of incorporation and applicable state law, our Board of Directors, without any action or approval by our stockholders, may designate and issue shares in such classes or series (including other classes or series of preferred stock) as it deems appropriate and establish the rights, preferences and privileges of such shares, including dividends, liquidation and voting rights. The rights of holders of other classes or series of capital stock, including preferred stock that may be issued could be superior to the rights of the shares of common stock offered hereby. The designation and issuance of shares of capital stock having preferential rights could adversely affect other rights appurtenant to the shares of our common stock. Finally, any issuances of additional capital stock (common or preferred) will dilute the percentage of ownership interest of our stockholders and may dilute the per-share book value of the Company. Each share of our series C preferred stock is convertible into that number of shares of shares of common stock determined by dividing (i) the stated value ($5.00) by (ii) the conversion price then in effect ($0.05). For example, our Series C Preferred contain voting rights which provide each share of Series C Preferred Stock with 100 votes for each shares of common stock into which the Series C Preferred Stock is convertible. Accordingly, our currently outstanding 160,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock (which are convertible into 16,000,000 shares) are entitled to 1,600,000,000 votes on any matter presented for a vote to our common stockholders. This has resulted in the holders of our Series C Preferred Stock having voting majority voting control of our corporation. There were 160,000 and 35,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock outstanding on January 31, 2017 and October 31, 2016, respectively.

In addition, Thomas Grbelja, our Chief Financial Officer purchased 200,000 Units for $10,000.

Power Up may convert the Note at any time during the period beginning on the date which is 180 days following the date of the Note and ending on the later of (i) the Maturity Date and (ii) the date of payment of the Default Amount (as defined in the Note); provided, however , that Power Up may not convert the Note to the extent that such conversion would result in Power Up’s beneficial ownership being in excess of 4.99% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock together with all shares owned by Power Up and its affiliates (the “Beneficial Ownership Limit”). Power Up may, on not less than 61 days’ prior notice to the Company, waive the Beneficial Ownership Limit. Pursuant to the terms of the Note, the Company may, at any time, prior to conversion, prepay the principal amount of the Note together with interest accrued thereon.

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, 2015 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 discussed in the Item 1A of this filing 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 annual report on Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 10, 2017 are those that depend most heavily on these judgments and estimates. As of January 31, 2017, there had been no material changes to any of the critical accounting policies contained therein.

 

Results of Operations

 

Three months ended January 31, 2017 compared to three months ended January 31, 2016.

 

Revenues

 

Our total revenues decreased 62.9% to $101,633 for the three months ended January 31, 2017, compared to $273,924 for the three months ended January 31, 2016, a decrease of $172,291. The decrease in sales is attributable to decrease in the volume of virtual tour video produced offset by a modest increase in the licensing of the Power Agent marketing agent marketing product.

 

Cost of Revenue

 

Cost of revenues totaled $49,796 for the three months ended January 31, 2017, compared to $45,110 for three months ended January 31, 2016, representing an increase of $4,686. Cost of revenues consists primarily of engineering costs incurred in connection with maintenance of our online networks, and the decrease in cost is in line with lower revenues.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Our operating expenses, which include salaries and benefits, selling and promotions and general and administrative expenses increased to $947,871 for the three months ended January 31, 2017, compared to $379,423 for the three months ended January 31, 2016, an increase of $568,448 or 150%. This increase was substantially due to reductions in cash-based salaries and benefits of $190,195, and selling and promotions expenses of $4,096, offset by increases stock-based compensation of $608,630 related to the issuance of warrants to executive officers, and an increase in general and administrative expenses of $148,206. Our increased general and administrative expenses in the quarter ended January 31, 2017 is primarily attributable to an increase in legal and consulting expense of $144,011, related to our entry into the food business.

Other Income (Expenses)

 

Our other expenses, net, increased by $518,995 for the three months ended January 31, 2017. A summary of other income (expense) is as follows:

 

    Three Months Ended        
    January 31,        
    2017     2016     Increase/(Decrease)  
Gain on change in fair value of derivative liability   $ -     $ 628,762     $ (628,762 )
Foreign exchange gain     -       9,450       (9,450  
Interest expense     (83,703 )     (160,625 )     76,922  
Loss on settlement of accrued expenses and notes payable     (23,716 )     (470,727 )     447,011  
    $ (107,419 )   $ 6,860     $ (114,279 )

 

Net Loss

 

We had a net loss of $1,003,452 for the three months ended January 31, 2017, compared to net loss of $143,141 for the three months ended January 31, 2016, an increase of $860,311. The increase in net loss from 2017 to 2016 was substantially due to a decrease in revenues of $172,291, along with an increase in share-based compensation of $608,630 an increase in general and administrative expenses of $148,206, and an increase in other expenses of $114,279.

 

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 January 31, 2017, the Company had $67,738 of cash and a working capital deficit of $621,409 as compared to cash of $148,887 and a working capital deficit of $1,811,563 as of October 31, 2016.

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $181,759 for the three months ended January 31, 2017 as compared to net cash used in operating activities of $181,874 for the three months ended January 31, 2016. For the three months ended January 31, 2017, we had a net loss of $1,003,452, which included share based compensation expense of $626,469, offset by non cash-items such as depreciation expense of $5,904, the loss on settlement of debt of $23,716, the amortization of debt discount of $61,603, and increases from changes in assets and liabilities of $104,002 which were comprised of an increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $192,481, and a decrease in accounts receivable of $10,571,offset by an increase in prepaid assets of $99,050. This is compared to net cash used in operating activities of $187,874 for the three months ended January 31, 2016 which resulted primarily from our net loss of $143,141, a gain on change in fair value of derivative liabilities of $628,362, common stock issued for interest of $42,050, increase in restricted cash of $27,977 and a decrease in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $60,221 and a decrease in deferred revenue of $9,500 which amounts were offset by a loss on legal settlement of accounts payable and convertible debt of $470,727, amortization and depreciation of $6,146, amortization of debt discount of $92,825, stock based consulting fees of $32,000, decrease in accounts receivable of $15,421 and a decrease in amounts due from former officer of $22,560.

 

We did not have any cash related to investing activities in the three months ended January 31, 2017 or October 31, 2016.

 

We have financed our operations since inception primarily through proceeds from equity financings and revenue derived from operations. During the three months ended January 31, 2017, we had $100,610 of net cash provided by financing activities which consisting of $100,000 in proceeds from the sale of 100,000 shares of our Series C Convertible Preferred Stock, and $610 in proceeds from the sale of 100,000 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock. In the three months ended January 31, 2016, we had $244,134 of net cash provided by financing activities consisting of $680,000 in proceeds from the sale of 13,600,000 shares of our common stock and related warrants, offset by the payoff of notes payable of $500,000. 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 may not be sufficient to enable us to meet our planned operating needs for the next 12 months.

 

22
 

 

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.

 

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 January 31, 2017.

 

Management has identified control deficiencies regarding the lack of segregation of duties. 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 January 31, 2017, 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 January 31, 2017 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.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

On May 11, 2016, we filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Monaker seeking collection of the balance owed to us, in the amount of $1,287,517, for advances on operating expenses and various debt obligation conversions to and from. Currently, a court date of July 2017 is scheduled.

 

In December 2016, Monaker filed a lawsuit against us in Eleventh Circuit Federal Court seeking an injunction against our action to cancel 44,470,101 shares of Series A Preferred Stock and 10,359,892 shares of common stock which were issued to Monaker. Additionally, Monaker sought to reverse the cancellation of these shares in its entirety. On January 15, 2017, the Court denied Monaker’s motion for a preliminary injunction.

 

In addition to the matter presented above, in the ordinary course of business, we are from time to time involved in various pending or threatened legal actions. The litigation process is inherently uncertain and it is possible that the resolution of such matters might have a material adverse effect upon our financial condition and/or results of operations. However, in the opinion of our management, other than as set forth herein, matters currently pending or threatened against us are not expected to have a material adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations.
