NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1: 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 (“GAAP”) 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 interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated 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 nine months ended July 31, 2017, are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for any other interim period or the fiscal year ending October 31, 2017.

 

The Company evaluated subsequent events through the date its financial statements were issued. No significant recognized or non recognized subsequent events were noted other than those discussed in Note 7, Debt.

 

Reclassifications

 

We have reclassified certain prior period amounts in our consolidated financial statements to conform to our current period presentation.

 

NOTE 2: ORGANIZATION AND 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. 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, which includes the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. In January 2017, Verus received a contract valued at $78 million to supply beef to the GCC countries. 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.

NOTE 3: NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In August 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“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 as of November 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 as of November 1, 2017, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact the new guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (“ASU 2014-09”), which supersedes previous revenue recognition guidance. ASU 2014-09 requires that a company recognize revenue at an amount that reflects consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring goods or services to a customer. In applying the new guidance, a company will (i) identify the contract(s) with customer; (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) determine transaction price; (iv) allocate the transaction price to the contract’s performance obligations; and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation. ASU 2014-09 was to be effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. However, on July 9, 2015, the FASB voted to approve a one-year deferral of the effective date. This new guidance is effective for the Company beginning November 1, 2018 and can be adopted using either a full retrospective or modified approach. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of ASU 2014-09 on its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

  

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes (“ASU 2015-17”), 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. The standard is effective for the Company as of November 1, 2017 with early adoption permitted. The Company plans to adopt the new guidance on November 1, 2017. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of ASU 2015-17 on its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

NOTE 4: FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

The Company has adopted FASB 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.

 

NOTE 5: GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying unaudited interim 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 $1,322,152 and negative cash flows from operations of $745,976 for the nine months ended July 31, 2017. As of July 31, 2017, the Company had a working capital deficit of $911,132 and an accumulated deficit of $22,966,603. It is management’s opinion that these facts raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts nor do the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern for a period of twelve months from the date of this report.

 

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 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 6: DUE FROM/TO AFFILIATES

 

During the normal course of business, the Company received and/or made 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 has recorded a receivable of $1,287,517 as of July 31, 2017 and October 31, 2016, respectively. On May 11, 2016, the Company filed a lawsuit against Monaker seeking collection of this balance. Due to uncertainty surrounding our ability to collect this amount, management has elected to record an allowance against the full amount of this receivable (See Note 11).

 

NOTE 7: DEBT

 

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.

 

As of July 31, 2017 and October 31, 2016, there was $693,750 and $1,044,681 of convertible notes payable outstanding, net of discounts, respectively.

 

On September 1, 2017, the Company issued Power Up Lending Group Ltd. a convertible note in the principal amount of $78,000 (the “Power Up Note 4”). The Power Up Note 4 accrues interest at a rate of 8% per annum and matures on June 10, 2018. Pursuant to the terms of the Power Up Note 4, the Company may prepay the principal amount of the note together with accrued interest at any time on or prior to February 28, 2018, subject to certain prepayment penalties. Pursuant to the terms of the convertible note, the outstanding principal and accrued interest of the note are generally convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a discount rate of 39% of the market price on the date of conversion, subject to certain restrictions.

 

On August 2, 2017, the Company issued JSJ Investments Inc. a convertible note in the principal amount of $125,000 (the “JSJ Note 2”).

Series A Convertible Preferred Stock

 

On October 14, 2014, the Company filed a certificate of amendment pursuant to the July 31, 2014 Board of Directors approval to increase the designated Preferred A shares from 100,000,000 shares to 120,000,000 shares. 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 Convertible Preferred 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 Convertible Preferred 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 Convertible Preferred Stock is equal to $1.00 per share. Each holder of Series A Convertible Preferred 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.

 

In December 2016, the Company cancelled 44,470,101 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and 10,359,892 shares of common stock which were held by Monaker. in connection with an over issuance of shares of common stock relating the conversion of the Monaker dual convertible preferred shares (See Note 11).

Series B Convertible Preferred Stock

 

On July 31, 2014, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the creation of a new Series B Convertible 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 Convertible 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 Preferred 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 Convertible Preferred Stock by issuing shares of common stock to the holders of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock on a uniform and prorated basis. Each share of Series B Convertible Preferred 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 Convertible Preferred Stock is equal to $0.05 per share. Each holder of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock shall be entitled to the number of votes equal to two hundred (200) votes for each share of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock held. There were no Series B Convertible Preferred Stock outstanding as of July 31, 2017 and October 31, 2016.

 

Series C Convertible Preferred Stock

 

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 Convertible Preferred Stock is convertible into the number 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 Convertible Preferred Stock contains voting rights which provide each share of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock with 100 votes for each shares of common stock into which the Series C Convertible Preferred Stock is convertible. Accordingly, our currently outstanding 160,000 shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (which are convertible into 16,000,000 shares of common stock) 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 Convertible Preferred Stock having voting majority voting control of our corporation. There were 160,000 and 35,000 shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock outstanding as of July 31, 2017 and October 31, 2016, respectively.

NOTE 9: NET LOSS PER SHARE

 

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted net loss per common share:

 

    Three Months Ended July 31,     Nine Months Ended July 31,  
    2017     2016     2017     2016  
Numerator for basic and diluted net loss per common share   $ (160,287 )   $ (172,426 )   $ (1,266,717 )   $ (400,747 )
Denominator for basic and diluted weighted average common shares     241,651,943       149,112,992       224,918,972       146,502,264  
Basic and diluted net loss per common share   $ (0.00 )   $ (0.00 )   $ (0.01 )   $ (0.00 )

 

In accordance with the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 260, Earnings per Share , basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing earnings available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Other potentially dilutive common shares, and the related impact to earnings, are considered when calculating EPS on a diluted basis.

 

In computing diluted EPS, only potential common shares that are dilutive, those that reduce EPS or increase loss per share, are included. The effect of contingently issuable shares are not included if the result would be anti-dilutive, such as when a net loss is reported. Therefore, basic and diluted EPS are computed using the same number of weighted average shares for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2017 and 2016 as we incurred a net loss for those periods. As of July 31, 2017, there were outstanding warrants to purchase 16,786,467 shares of the Company’s common stock and approximately 427,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock are reserved for convertible notes which may dilute future earnings per share.

 

Note 10: Segment reporting

 

The Company has two reportable segments: Real Estate and 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 Food Business commenced operations in January 2017.

 

The Company evaluates segment performance based on segment net income (loss). Costs excluded from segment net income (loss) and reported as “Other” consist of corporate general and administrative costs which are not allocable to the two 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 reviews assets on a consolidated basis only and, therefore, assets by reportable segment have not been included in the disclosure below.

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

 

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, 2016 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. 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 Quarterly Report. Readers should carefully review the factors identified under the caption “Risk Factors” in documents we file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q.

 

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 (“GAAP”). The preparation of these unaudited consolidated 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 SEC on February 10, 2017 are those that depend most heavily on these judgments and estimates. As of July 31, 2017, there had been no material changes to any of the critical accounting policies contained therein.

 

Results of Operations

 

The following analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited interim consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto.

 

Three and Nine Months Ended July 31, 2017

 

Revenues

 

Revenues totaled $1,154,631 and $2,333,626 for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2017, respectively, compared to $226,625 and $759,963 for the comparable periods in 2016, respectively. The increase in revenues is attributable to sales from our food business which is new in 2017, partially offset by an ongoing decline in real estate operations.

 

Cost of Revenue

 

Cost of revenues totaled $855,481 and $1,889,704 for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2017, respectively, compared to $1,244 and $47,551 for the comparable periods in 2016, respectively. The increase in cost of revenue is attributable to our food business which is new in 2017, partially offset by an ongoing decline in real estate operations. Cost of revenues in 2016 represents engineering costs incurred for maintenance of our online networks for our real estate business.

 

    18  

 

 

Operating Expenses

 

Operating expenses, which include salaries and benefits, selling and promotions and general and administrative expenses totaled $460,339 and $1,643,995 for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2017, respectively, compared to $236,545 and $808,647 for the comparable periods in 2016, respectively. This increase was substantially due to increases in salaries and benefits and general and administrative expenses primarily related to our entry into the food business in January 2017.

 

Other Expense

 

Other expense totaled $9,745 and $122,079 for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2017, respectively, compared to $164,773 and $319,883 for the comparable periods in 2016, respectively primarily due to a decrease in interest expense.

 

Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We have historically financed our operations through proceeds from equity and debt financings and revenue derived from our operations. Our operations historically have not produced positive cash flows. As of July 31, 2017, the Company had $197,271 of cash and a working capital deficit of $911,132.

 

Our continued operations will primarily depend on our ability to raise additional capital from various sources including debt and equity financings, as well as 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.

 

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.

 

Operating, Investing and Financing Cash Flows

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $745,976 for the nine months ended July 31, 2017 compared to net cash used in operating activities of $241,117 for the comparable period in 2016.

 

We did not have any investing activities during the nine months ended July 31, 2017.

 

During the nine months ended July 31, 2017, we had $794,360 of net cash provided by financing activities which consisted of (i) $693,750 in proceeds from the issuance of convertible notes, (ii) $100,000 in proceeds from the sale of 100,000 shares of our Series C Convertible Preferred Stock and (iii) $610 in proceeds from the sale of 100,000 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock. During the nine months ended July 31, 2016, we had $180,000 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.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

As a “smaller reporting company” as defined by Item 10 of Regulation S-K, we are not required to provide information required by this item.

 

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 Exchange Act of 1934. 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 SEC’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 July 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 unaudited consolidated financial statements for the quarter ended July 31, 2017, included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q were fairly stated in accordance with GAAP. Accordingly, management believes that despite our material weaknesses, our consolidated unaudited financial statements for the quarter ended July 31, 2017 are fairly stated, in all material respects, in accordance with 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 Monaker. Currently, a trial date of May 2018 has been 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. 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.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

As a “smaller reporting company” as defined by Item 10 of Regulation S-K, we are not required to provide information required by this item.

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities

 

None.

 

Item 3. Defaults Upon Senior Securities

 

There were no defaults upon senior securities during the quarter ended July 31, 2017.
