AGRITEK HOLDINGS, INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION

 

BUSINESS

 

Agritek Holdings, Inc. (the “Company” or “Agritek”), formerly known as Mediswipe, Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiary, Agritek Venture Holdings, Inc., acquires and leases real estate to licensed marijuana operators, including providing complete turnkey growing space and related facilities to licensed marijuana growers and dispensary owners. Additionally, the Company offers a variety of services and product lines to the medicinal marijuana sector including the distribution of hemp based nutritional products, a line of innovative solutions for electronically processing merchant transactions and recently, the Company began importing and distributing vaporizers and e-cigarettes under the Company's Mont Blunt brand.

The Company does not grow, harvest, distribute or sell marijuana or any substances that violate the laws of the United States of America.

On March 18, 2014, the Company completed the purchase of 80 acres zoned for agricultural use in Pueblo County, Colorado. The Company plans to lease individual parcels of the 80 acre parcel to fully-licensed and compliant growers and dispensaries within the regulated medicinal and recreational market of Colorado. The Company will receive rents and management fees for providing infrastructure, water, electricity, equipment leasing and security services. The Company is presently working on its first agreements for tenants to move into the facility during 2014.

 

On April 28, 2014, the Company executed and closed a lease agreement for 20 acres of an agricultural farming facility located in South Florida following the approval of the so-called “Charlotte’s Web” legislation, aimed at decriminalizing low grade marijuana specifically for the use of treating epilepsy and cancer patients.  Pursuant to the lease agreement, through November 1, 2014, the Company has an option to purchase the land for $1,100,000 and maintains a first right of refusal to purchase the property for three years.

 

The Company is continuing its focus to acquire real property through purchase or lease, and subsequently lease the real estate to licensed marijuana and/or dispensary owners (see Subsequent Events).

 

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company without audit and include the consolidated accounts of Agritek Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary to present the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the stated periods have been made. Except as described below, these adjustments consist only of normal and recurring adjustments. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in the Company’s annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with a reading of the Company’s consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Form 10-K annual report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on April 1, 2014. Interim results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of future results for the full year. Certain amounts from the 2013 period have been reclassified to conform to the presentation used in the current period.

 

CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original term of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

 

5
 

ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE

 

The Company records accounts receivable from amounts due from its customers upon the shipment of products. The allowance for losses is established through a provision for losses charged to expenses. Receivables are charged against the allowance for losses when management believes collectability is unlikely. The allowance is an amount that management believes will be adequate to absorb estimated losses on existing receivables, based on evaluation of the collectability of the accounts and prior loss experience. While management uses the best information available to make its evaluations, this estimate is susceptible to significant change in the near term. As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, based on the above criteria, the Company recorded an allowance for doubtful accounts of $26,754 and expense for the year ended December 31, 2013.

INVENTORY

 

Inventory is valued at the lower of cost or market value. Cost is determined using the first in first out (FIFO) method. Provision for potentially obsolete or slow moving inventory is made based on management analysis or inventory levels and future sales forecasts.

 

DEFERRED FINANCING COSTS

 

The costs related to the issuance of debt are capitalized and amortized to interest expense using the straight-line method through the maturities of the related debt.  

 

PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, and except for land, depreciation is provided by use of accelerated and straight-line methods over the estimated useful lives of the assets. The Company reviews property and equipment for potential impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amounts of assets may not be recoverable. The estimated useful lives of property and equipment are as follows:

 

   Office equipment, furniture and vehicles 5 years
   Computer hardware and software 3 years

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION

 

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with FASB ASC 605, Revenue Recognition. ASC 605 requires that four basic criteria are met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (2) delivery of products and services has occurred, (3) the fee is fixed or determinable and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. The Company recognizes revenue during the month in which products are shipped or commissions are earned.

 

FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

Fair value measurements are determined under a three-level hierarchy for fair value measurements that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value, distinguishing between market participant assumptions developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the reporting entity (“observable inputs”) and the reporting entity’s own assumptions about market participant assumptions developed based on the best information available in the circumstances (“unobservable inputs”).

 

Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or would be paid to transfer a liability (i.e., the “exit price”) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In determining fair value, the Company primarily uses prices and other relevant information generated by market transactions involving identical or comparable assets (“market approach”). The Company also considers the impact of a significant decrease in volume and level of activity for an asset or liability when compared with normal activity to identify transactions that are not orderly.

 

The highest priority is given to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). Securities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

6
 

The three hierarchy levels are defined as follows:

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets that is unadjusted and accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities;

 

Level 2 – Quoted prices for identical assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or financial instruments for which significant inputs are observable, either directly or indirectly;

 

Level 3 – Prices or valuations that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable.

 

Credit risk adjustments are applied to reflect the Company’s own credit risk when valuing all liabilities measured at fair value. The methodology is consistent with that applied in developing counterparty credit risk adjustments, but incorporates the Company’s own credit risk as observed in the credit default swap market.

 

The Company's financial instruments consist primarily of cash, accounts receivable, notes receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses, note payable and convertible debt. The carrying amounts of such financial instruments approximate their respective estimated fair value due to the short-term maturities and approximate market interest rates of these instruments.  The estimated fair value is not necessarily indicative of the amounts the Company would realize in a current market exchange or from future earnings or cash flows.

 

INCOME TAXES

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC 740-10, Income Taxes. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized to reflect the estimated future tax effects, calculated at the tax rate expected to be in effect at the time of realization. A valuation allowance related to a deferred tax asset is recorded when it is more likely than not that some portion of the deferred tax asset will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of the changes in tax laws and rates of the date of enactment.

 

ASC 740-10 prescribes a recognition threshold that a tax position is required to meet before being recognized in the financial statements and provides guidance on recognition, measurement, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition issues. Interest and penalties are classified as a component of interest and other expenses. To date, the Company has not been assessed, nor paid, any interest or penalties.

 

Uncertain tax positions are measured and recorded by establishing a threshold for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. Only tax positions meeting the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold at the effective date may be recognized or continue to be recognized. The Company’s tax years subsequent to 2005 remain subject to examination by federal and state tax jurisdictions.

 

EARNINGS (LOSS) PER SHARE

 

Earnings (loss) per share are computed in accordance with ASC 260, "Earnings per Share". Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss), after deducting preferred stock dividends accumulated during the period, by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each period. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock, common stock equivalents and other potentially dilutive securities, if any, outstanding during the period. As of June 30, 2014 there were warrants to purchase 300,000 shares of common stock, the Company’s outstanding convertible debt is convertible into 3,018,182 shares of common stock and 750,000 shares of Class B convertible preferred stock is convertible into 31,551,226 shares of common stock. These amounts are not included in the computation of dilutive loss per share because their impact is antidilutive.

 

ACCOUNTING FOR STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION 

 

The Company accounts for stock awards issued to non-employees in accordance with ASC 505-50, Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees. The measurement date is the earlier of (1) the date at which a commitment for performance by the counterparty to earn the equity instruments is reached, or (2) the date at which the counterparty's performance is complete. Stock awards granted to non-employees are valued at their respective measurement dates based on the trading price of the Company’s common stock and recognized as expense during the period in which services are provided.

7
 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded stock and warrant based compensation of $25,000 and $50,000, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company recorded $3,116,681 and $3,221,015, respectively of stock and warrant based compensation (See Notes 7 and 8).

 

USE OF ESTIMATES

 

The preparation of 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 disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

ADVERTISING

 

The Company records advertising costs as incurred. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, advertising expense was $27,703 and $28,703, respectively and $5,227 and $8,871 for the three and six months ended June, 30 2013, respectively.

 

NOTE 3 - RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

Accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by the FASB or other standards-setting bodies that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

 

NOTE 4 - RECLASSIFICATIONS

 

Certain prior period balances have been reclassified to conform to the current period's financial statement presentation. These reclassifications had no impact on previously reported results of operations or stockholders' deficiency.

 

NOTE 5 – SALES CONCENTRATION AND CONCENTRATION OF CREDIT RISK

 

CASH

 

Financial   instruments   that   potentially   subject   the   Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash. The Company maintains cash balances at one financial institution, which is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”). The FDIC insured institution insures up to $250,000 on account balances. As of June 30, 2014, the Company’s cash balance exceeded the insured amount by $59,802. The company maintains its’ cash balance at a large financial institution and has not experienced any losses in such accounts.

 

SALES

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2014, three (3) customers each accounted for more than 10% of our business, respectively, as follows:

NOTE 6 – CONVERTIBLE DEBT AND NOTE PAYABLE

 

Convertible Debt

 

On January 2, 2013, February 11, 2013, April 10, 2013, July 29, 2013 and October 16, 2013, the Company entered convertible note agreements (the “2013 Notes”) with Asher Enterprises, Inc. (“Asher”) for $37,500, $27,500, $27,500, $65,000 and $70,000, respectively. We received net proceeds of $214,000 from the 2013 Notes after debt issuance costs of $13,500 paid for lender legal fees. These debt issuance costs have been amortized over the earlier of the terms of the Note or any redemptions and accordingly $1,178 and $4,511 has been expensed as debt issuance costs (included in interest expense) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014. There are no remaining debt issuance costs to be amortized.

 

Among other terms the 2013 Notes were due nine months from their issuance date, bearing interest at 8% per annum, payable in cash or shares at a conversion price (the “Conversion Price”) for each share of common stock equal to 50% of the average of the lowest three trading prices (as defined in the note agreements) per share of the Company’s common stock for the ten trading days immediately preceding the date of conversion. Upon the occurrence of an event of default, as defined in the 2013 Notes, the Company was required to pay interest at 22% per annum and the holders could at their option declare a Note, together with accrued and unpaid interest, to be immediately due and payable. In addition, the 2013 Notes provided for adjustments for dividends payable other than in shares of common stock, for reclassification, exchange or substitution of the common stock for another security or securities of the Company or pursuant to a reorganization, merger, consolidation, or sale of assets, where there is a change in control of the Company.

 

The Company determined that the conversion feature of the 2013 Notes represented an embedded derivative since the Notes were convertible into a variable number of shares upon conversion. Accordingly, the 2013 Notes were not considered to be conventional debt under EITF 00-19 and the embedded conversion feature being bifurcated from the debt host and accounted for as a derivative liability. Accordingly, the fair value of these derivative instruments being recorded as a liability on the consolidated balance sheet with the corresponding amount recorded as a discount to each Note. Such discount was being amortized from the date of issuance to the maturity dates of the Notes. The change in the fair value of the liability for derivative contracts will be recorded in other income or expenses in the consolidated statements of operations at the end of each quarter, with the offset to the derivative liability on the balance sheet. The beneficial conversion feature included in the 2013 Notes resulted in an initial debt discount of $227,500 and an initial loss on the valuation of derivative liabilities of $35,029 for a derivative liability initial balance of $262,529.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company issued 760,375 shares of common stock in satisfaction of $135,000 of the 2013 Notes and $5,400 of accrued and unpaid interest. The shares were issued at approximately $0.18465 per share. The fair value of the derivative liability on the dates of conversion totaling $175,575 was reclassified to paid-in-capital during the six months ended June 30, 2014. As of June 30, 2014, the 2013 Asher Notes have been fully satisfied.

 

On May 20, 2013, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with Typenex Co-Investment, LLC ("Typenex"), for the sale of an 8% convertible note in the principal amount of up to $667,500 (which includes Typenex legal expenses in the amount of $7,500 and a $60,000 original issue discount) (the “2013 Company Note”) for a purchase price of $600,000, consisting of $100,000 paid in cash at closing on May 21, 2013 (the “Initial Cash Purchase Price”) and five secured promissory notes, aggregating $500,000 (the “Investor Notes”), bearing interest at the rate of 8% per annum. Three of the Investor Notes aggregating $300,000 were funded in 2013 and the two remaining Investor Notes of $100,000 each were funded in January 2014.

The 2013 Company Note included interest at the rate of 8% per annum, due in four equal monthly installments (the “Redemption Price”) beginning on the six month anniversary of the initial funding. All interest and principal was to be repaid on February 21, 2014. The 2013 Company Note was convertible into common stock, at Typenex’s option, at a price of $0.055 per share. In the event the Company elected to prepay all or any portion of the 2013 Company Note, the Company was required to pay to Typenex an amount in cash equal to 125% multiplied by the sum of all principal, interest and any other amounts owing. Beginning on the date that is six (6) months after the later of (i) the Issuance Date, and (ii) the date the Initial Cash Purchase Price is paid to the Company (the “Initial Installment Date”), and on each applicable Installment Date thereafter, the Company was to pay the Holder of this Note the applicable Installment Amount due on such date. Payments of the Installment Amount may be made (a) in cash (a “Company Redemption”), (b) by converting such Installment Amount into shares of Common Stock (a “Company Conversion”), or (c) by any combination of a Company Conversion and a Company Redemption so long as the entire amount of such Installment Amount due shall be converted and/or redeemed by the Company on the applicable Installment Date.

 

At any time prior to the payment of the applicable Redemption Price by the Company, the Holder had the option, in lieu of redemption, to cancel the Event of Default Redemption Notice by written notice to the Company (the “Redemption Cancellation Notice”). Upon the Company’s receipt of a Redemption Cancellation Notice, the Outstanding Balance of the Note as of the date of the Redemption Notice shall thereafter be due and payable upon demand, with payment of the Outstanding Balance being due ten (10) Trading Days after written demand therefor from the Holder; (y) the Conversion Price of this Note shall be automatically adjusted with respect to each conversion under this Note effected thereafter by the Holder to the lowest of (A) 75% of the lowest Closing Bid Price of the Common Stock during the period beginning on and including the date on which the applicable Redemption Notice is delivered to the Company and ending on and including the date of the Redemption Cancellation Notice, (B) the Market Price as of the date of the Redemption Cancellation Notice, (C) the then current Market Price, and (D) the then current Conversion Price. 

 

The Company determined that the conversion feature of the 2013 Company Note represents an embedded derivative since the Note is convertible into a variable number of shares upon conversion. Accordingly, the 2013 Company Note is not considered to be conventional debt under EITF 00-19 and the embedded conversion feature must be bifurcated from the debt host and accounted for as a derivative liability. Accordingly, the fair value of this derivative instrument has been recorded as a liability on the consolidated balance sheet with since the corresponding amount recorded as an expense

NOTE 9 – INCOME TAXES

 

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of operating loss and tax credit carry forwards and temporary differences between carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes. In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which temporary differences representing net future deductible amounts become deductible. Due to the uncertainty of the Company’s ability to realize the benefit of the deferred tax assets, the deferred tax assets are fully offset by a valuation allowance at June 30, 2014 and 2013.

 

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had a tax net operating loss carry forward of approximately $1,356,000. Any unused portion of this carry forward expires in 2030. Utilization of this loss may be limited in the event of an ownership change pursuant to IRS Section 382.

During 2013, the Company entered into an exclusive distributorship agreement with Chill Drinks, LLC for sales of Chill Drink’s products to dispensaries. Sales began in April 2013. The decrease in the sale of the Chillo products is primarily due to the Company focusing more on its’ real estate business plan at this time.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures.


We maintain disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our filings under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC. This information is accumulated to allow our management to make timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our President, who serves as our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report and he determined that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to a control deficiency. During the period we did not have additional personnel to allow segregation of duties to ensure the completeness or accuracy of our information. Due to the size and operations of the Company, we are unable to remediate this deficiency until we acquire or merge with another company.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting


Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures.  As of the end of the period covered by this report, we conducted an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act). Based upon this evaluation our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, at June 30, 2014, our disclosure controls and procedures are not effective.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Controls over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act. Internal control over financial reporting is a set of processes designed by, or under the supervision of, a company’s principal executive and principal financial officers, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with GAAP and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect our transactions and dispositions of our assets;
Provide reasonable assurance our transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of our financial statements in accordance with GAAP, and that receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors; and
Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statement.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. It should be noted that any system of internal control, however well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, and not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the system will be met. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

Our CEO and CFO have evaluated the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as described in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) as of the end of the period covered by this report based upon criteria established in “Internal Control-Integrated Framework” issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) to the extent possible given the limited personnel resources and technological infrastructure in place to perform the evaluation. Based upon our management’s discussions with our auditors and other advisors, our CEO and CFO believe that, during the period covered by this report, such internal controls and procedures were not effective as described below.

19
 

We assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of evaluation date and identified the following material weaknesses:

 

Insufficient Resources: We have an inadequate number of personnel with requisite expertise in the key functional areas of finance and accounting.

 

Inadequate Segregation of Duties: We have an inadequate number of personnel to properly implement control procedures.

 

Lack of Audit Committee: We do not have a functioning audit committee, resulting in lack of independent oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures.

 

We are committed to improving the internal controls and will (1) consider to use third party specialists to address shortfalls in staffing and to assist us with accounting and finance responsibilities, (2) increase the frequency of independent reconciliations of significant accounts which will mitigate the lack of segregation of duties until there are sufficient personnel and (3) may consider appointing additional outside directors and audit committee members in the future.

 

We have discussed the material weakness noted above with our independent registered public accounting firm. Due to the nature of this material weakness, there is a more than remote likelihood that misstatements which could be material to the annual or interim financial statements could occur that would not be prevented or detected.
