AGRITEK HOLDINGS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

March 31, 2019 and 2018

 

 

Note 1 - Organization

 

Business

 

Agritek Holdings Inc. (“the Company” or “Agritek Holdings”) and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, MediSwipe, Inc. (“MediSwipe”), Prohibition Products Inc. (“PPI”), and Agritek Venture Holdings, Inc. (“AVHI”) is a fully integrated, active investor and operator in the legal cannabis sector. Specifically, Agritek Holdings provides strategic capital and functional expertise to accelerate the commercialization of its diversified portfolio of holdings. Currently, the Company is focused on three high-value segments of the cannabis market, including real estate investment, intellectual property brands; and infrastructure, with operations in three U.S. States, Colorado, Washington State, California as well as Canada and Puerto Rico. Agritek Holdings invests its capital via real estate holdings, licensing agreements, royalties and equity in acquisition operations.

We provide key business services to the legal cannabis sector including:

 

  •  Funding and Financing Solutions for Agricultural Land and Properties zoned for the regulated Cannabis Industry.
  •  Dispensary and Retail Solutions
  •  Commercial Production and Equipment Build Out Solutions
  •  Multichannel Supply Chain Solutions
  •  Branding, Marketing and Sales Solutions of proprietary product lines
  •  Consumer Product Solutions 

 

The Company intends to bring its’ array of services to each new state that legalizes the use of cannabis according to appropriate state and federal laws. Our primary objective is acquiring commercial properties to be utilized in the commercial marijuana industry as cultivation facilities in compliance with state laws. This is an essential aspect of our overall growth strategy because once acquired and re-zoned, the value of such real property is substantially higher than under the previous zoning and use.

Once properties are identified and acquired to be used for purposes related to the commercial marijuana industry as provided for by state law, and we plan to create vertical channels within that legal jurisdiction including equipment financing, payment processing and marketing of exclusive brands and services to retail dispensaries

Agritek’s business focus is primarily to hold, develop and manage real property. The Company shall also provide oversight on every property that is part of its portfolio. This can include complete architectural design and subsequent build-outs, general support, landscaping, general up-keep, and state of the art security systems. At this time, Agritek does not grow, process, own, handle, transport, or sell marijuana as the Company is organized and directed to operate strictly in accordance with all applicable state and federal laws. As the legal environment changes in Colorado, California and other states, the Company’s management may explore business opportunities that involve ownership interests in dispensaries and growing operations if and when such business opportunities become legally permissible under applicable state and federal laws.

 

On March 26, 2019, we implemented a 1-for-200 reverse stock split of our common stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”). The Reverse Stock Split became effective in the stock market upon commencement of trading on March 26, 2019. As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every two-hundred shares of our Pre-Reverse Stock Split common stock were combined and reclassified into one share of our common stock. No fractional shares were issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split, and any fractional shares were rounded up to the nearest whole share. The number of shares of common stock subject to outstanding options, warrants and convertible securities were also reduced by a factor of two-hundred as of March 26, 2019. All historical share and per share amounts reflected throughout this report have been adjusted to reflect the Reverse Stock Split. The authorized number of shares and the par value per share of our common stock were not affected by the Reverse Stock Split.

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America ("US GAAP"). The condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company include the consolidated accounts of Agritek and its’ wholly owned subsidiaries MediSwipe, AVHI, The American Hemp Trading Company, Inc., a Colorado Corporation (dba 77Acres, Inc.) and PPI. PPI, a Florida corporation, was originally formed on July 1, 2013 as The American Hemp Trading Company, Inc. (“HempFL”) and on August 27, 2014, HempFL changed its’ name to PPI. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. 

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

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

 

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 March 31, 2019, and December 31, 2018, based on the above criteria, the Company has an allowance for doubtful accounts of $44,068.

 

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.

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks. The Company evaluates all of it financial instruments, including stock purchase warrants, to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported as charges or credits to income. 

 

For option-based simple derivative financial instruments, the Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to value the derivative instruments at inception and subsequent valuation dates. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is re-assessed at the end of each reporting period. 

 

Debt Issue Costs and Debt Discount

 

The Company may record debt issue costs and/or debt discounts in connection with raising funds through the issuance of debt. These costs may be paid in the form of cash, or equity (such as warrants). These costs are amortized to interest expense over the life of the debt. If a conversion of the underlying debt occurs prior to maturity a proportionate share of the unamortized amounts is immediately expensed. 

 

Original Issue Discount

 

For certain convertible debt issued, the Company may provide the debt holder with an original issue discount. The original issue discount would be recorded to debt discount, reducing the initial carrying value of the note and is amortized to interest expense through the maturity of the debt. If a conversion of the underlying debt occurs prior to maturity a proportionate share of the unamortized amounts is immediately expensed. 

 

Marketable Securities and Other Comprehensive Income

 

The Company classifies its marketable securities as available-for-sale securities, which are carried at their fair value based on the quoted market prices of the securities with unrealized gains and losses, net of deferred income taxes, reported as accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), a separate component of stockholders’ equity. Realized gains and losses on available-for-sale securities are included in net earnings in the period earned or incurred.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, and except for land, depreciation is provided by use of a straight-line method 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. In February, 2017, the Company entered into a land purchase contract to acquire approximately 80 acres including water and mineral rights. The total cost of the land was $129,555. The Company paid $41,554 at closing and issued a note payable for $88,000. The Company is on the deed of trust of the property with a remaining note balance of $21,500 and $21,500 due the seller as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. The estimated useful lives of property and equipment are as follows:

 

Furniture and equipment 5 years
Manufacturing equipment 7 years

 

The Company's property and equipment consisted of the following at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018:

  

  

March 31,

2019

 

December 31,

2018

Furniture and equipment  $215,006   $215,006 
Land   129,555    129,555 
Accumulated depreciation   (72,026)   (61,928)
Balance  $272,535   $282,633 

 

 8 

 

Depreciation expense of $10,098 and $8,430 was recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2019, and 2018, respectively.

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.

 

Deferred rent

 

The Company calculates the total cost of the lease for the entire lease period and divides that amount by the number of months of the lease. The result is the average monthly expense and is charged to rent expense with the offset to deferred rent, irrespective of the actual amount paid. The amounts paid are charged to the deferred rent account. As of March 31, 2019, and December 31, 2018, the Company has a balance of $24,916 in deferred rent which is included in the condensed consolidated balance sheet.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASC 606 — Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Under ASC 606, the Company recognizes revenue from the commercial sales of products, licensing agreements and contracts to perform pilot studies by applying the following steps: (1) identify the contract with a customer; (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (3) determine the transaction price; (4) allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation in the contract; and (5) recognize revenue when each performance obligation is satisfied. For the comparative periods, revenue has not been adjusted and continues to be reported under ASC 605 — Revenue Recognition. Under ASC 605, revenue is recognized when the following criteria are met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) the performance of service has been rendered to a customer or delivery has occurred; (3) the amount of fee to be paid by a customer is fixed and determinable; and (4) the collectability of the fee is reasonably assured. There was no impact on the Company’s financial statements as a result of adopting Topic 606 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company measures assets and liabilities at fair value based on an expected exit price as defined by the authoritative guidance on fair value measurements, which represents the amount that would be received on the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability, as the case may be, in an orderly transaction between market participants. As such, fair value may be based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. The authoritative guidance on fair value measurements establishes a consistent framework for measuring fair value on either a recurring or nonrecurring basis whereby inputs, used in valuation techniques, are assigned a hierarchical level. 

 

The following are the hierarchical levels of inputs to measure fair value: 

 

  Level 1 - Observable inputs that reflect quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
  Level 2 - Inputs reflect quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the assets or liabilities; or inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.
  Level 3 - Unobservable inputs reflecting the Company's assumptions incorporated in valuation techniques used to determine fair value. These assumptions are required to be consistent with market participant assumptions that are reasonably available.

  

The carrying amounts of the Company's financial assets and liabilities, such as cash, prepaid expenses, other current assets, accounts payable and accrued expenses, certain notes payable and notes payable - related party, approximate their fair values because of the short maturity of these instruments.

The following table represents the Company’s financial instruments that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, for each fair value hierarchy level:

 

March 31, 2019     Derivative Liabilities       Total  
Level I   $ —       $ —    
Level II   $ —       $ —    
Level III   $ 1,728,062     $ 1,728,062  
December 31, 2018                
Level I   $ —       $ —    
Level II   $ —       $ —    
Level III   $ 1,561,232     $ 1,561,232  

 

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 March 31, 2019, there were warrants and options to purchase 320,426 shares of common stock and the Company’s outstanding convertible debt is convertible into approximately 4,435,649 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. For the three months ended March 31, 2019, and 2018, the Company recorded stock- based compensation of $0, and $97,500, respectively, (see Note 9).

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 months ended March 31, 2019, and 2018, advertising expense was $63 and $17,450, respectively.

 

Leases

 

The Company accounts for leases under ASU 2016-02. Operating leases are included in operating lease right-of-use (“ROU”) assets and operating lease liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. The Company leases an office space and several retail locations used to conduct our business. On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASU No. 2016-02, applying the package of practical expedients to leases that commenced before the effective date whereby the Company elected to not reassess the following: (i) whether any expired or existing contracts contain leases; (ii) the lease classification for any expired or existing leases; and (iii) initial direct costs for any existing leases. For contracts entered into on or after the effective date, at the inception of a contract the Company assess whether the contract is, or contains, a lease. Our assessment is based on: (1) whether the contract involves the use of a distinct identified asset, (2) whether we obtain the right to substantially all the economic benefit from the use of the asset throughout the period, and (3) whether we have the right to direct the use of the asset. We allocate the consideration in the contract to each lease component based on its relative stand-alone price to determine the lease payments. Leases entered into prior to January 1, 2019, are accounted for under ASC 840 and were not reassessed. We have elected not to recognize right-of-use assets and lease liabilities for short-term leases that have a term of 12 months or less.

 

Operating lease ROU assets represent the right to use the leased asset for the lease term and operating lease liabilities are recognized based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the lease term at commencement date. As most leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company use an incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at the adoption date in determining the present value of future payments. Operating lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term and is included in rent in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Note 3 – Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)”. Under this guidance, an entity is required to recognize right-of-use assets and lease liabilities on its balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. This guidance offers specific accounting guidance for a lessee, a lessor and sale and leaseback transactions. Lessees and lessors are required to disclose qualitative and quantitative information about leasing arrangements to enable a user of the financial statements to assess the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. This guidance is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within that reporting period, and requires a modified retrospective adoption, with early adoption permitted. This guidance is reflected in these financial statements.

 

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-18, “Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230).” ASU No. 2016-18 requires that restricted cash be included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the change in cash flow. This guidance is reflected in these financial statements.

 

 11 

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment, which removes the second step of the two-step goodwill impairment test. Under ASU 2017-04, an entity will apply a one-step quantitative test and record the amount of goodwill impairment as the excess of a reporting unit’s carrying amount over its fair value, not to exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit. ASU 2017-04 does not amend the optional qualitative assessment of goodwill impairment. Additionally, an entity should consider income tax effects from any tax-deductible goodwill on the carrying amount of the reporting unit when measuring the goodwill impairment loss, if applicable. ASU 2017-04 is effective for annual or any interim goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019; early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. The Company has not elected early adoption of this standard and is currently in the process of evaluating the impact of adopting ASU 2017-04 and cannot currently estimate the financial statement impact of adoption. 

 

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-09, “Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting.” The amendments in this update provide guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based award require an entity to apply modification accounting in Topic 718. The guidance will be effective for the Company for its fiscal year 2018, with early adoption permitted. This ASU did not materially impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements.  

 

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 7 – Note Payable  

 

Note Payable Land

 

On March 18, 2014, in conjunction with the land purchase of 80 acres in Pueblo County, Colorado, the Company paid $36,000 cash and entered into a promissory note in the amount of $85,750. In November 2015, the Company was made aware that the land transaction regarding 80 acres in Pueblo County, Colorado, may not have been properly deeded to the Company. The company was a party to the land purchase, however, the second party to the land contract never filed the original quit claim deed on behalf of the Company, even though a copy of the notarized quit claim deed was sent to the Company. In February, 2017, the original owner of the 80 acres foreclosed on the property from the second party and the Company entered into a new land purchase contract (including water and mineral rights) directly with the landowner on February 7, 2017. The Company is on the deed of trust of the property and as of March 31,2019, and December 31, 2018, the note balance is $21,500 and $21,500, respectively.

 

Note 8 – Convertible Debt

 

2018 Convertible Notes

 

On May 8, 2018, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with L2 Capital, LLC (“L2”) pursuant to which the Company issued and sold a promissory note to the Investor in the aggregate principal amount of up to $565,555 (the “Note”), which is convertible into shares of common stock of the Company, subject to the terms, conditions and limitations set forth in the Note. The Note accrues interest at a rate of 9% per annum. The aggregate principal amount of up to $565,555 consists of a prorated original issuance discount of up to $55,555 and a $10,000 credit to L2 for transactional expenses with net consideration to the Company of up to $500,000 which will be funded in tranches. The maturity date of each tranche funded shall be six (6) months from the effective date of each payment and is the date upon which the principal sum, as well as any accrued and unpaid interest and other fees for each tranche, shall be due and payable. L2 has the right at any time to convert all or any part of the funded portion of the Note into fully paid and non-assessable shares of common stock of the Company at the Conversion Price, which is equal to 58% multiplied by the lowest VWAP during the twenty-five (25) Trading Day period ending, in Holder’s sole discretion on each conversion, on either (i) the last complete Trading Day prior to the Conversion Date or (ii) the Conversion Date (subject to adjustment as provided in the Note), subject to the occurrence of any Event of Default (as defined therein) under the Note. In connection with the funding of the initial tranche $100,000 on May 23, 2018, the Company recorded $121,111 of the Note and also issued a common stock purchase warrant to L2 to purchase up to 34,842 shares of the Company’s common stock pursuant to the terms therein (the “L2 Warrant”) as a commitment fee. The Company recorded an initial derivative liability and derivative expense of $108,569 for the issuance of the warrant. The Company recorded a debt discount of $121,111 and during the year ended December 31, 2018, recorded the full amortization expense of $121,111. At the time that each subsequent tranche under the Note is funded by L2 in cash, then on such funding date, the warrant shares shall immediately and automatically be increased by the quotient of 100% of the face value of the respective tranche and 110% of the VWAP of the common stock on the Trading Day immediately prior to the funding date of the respective tranche. The L2 Warrant is exercisable for a period of five (5) years from date of issuance. The L2 Warrant includes a cashless net exercise provision whereby L2 can elect to receive shares equal to the value of the L2 Warrant minus the fair market value of shares being surrendered to pay for the exercise. Since the date of the initial funding L2 has funded $350,000 of additional tranches and the Company increased the Note by $388,885. The Company recorded an initial derivative liability on the additional tranches funded of $482,086, a debt discount of $393,885 and an initial derivative expense of $88,201. On January 11, 2019, the Company received the final funding of $50,000 from the May 8, 2018, note of L2 and the Company increased the Note by $55,559. For this funding the Company recorded a derivative liability of $85,849, a debt discount of $55,559 and an initial derivative expense of $30,290. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company recorded amortization expense of $215,586 on the Note, and their remains $98,878 of unamortized note discounts. The principal and interest balance of the Note as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, $595,263 was $524,565.

On July 5, 2018, as part of the Company’s debt consolidation plan, the Company accepted and agreed to a Note Purchase Agreement (the “NPA”), whereby, St George Investments, LLC (“St’ George”) assigned $174,374.72 of principal and interest of their St George 2016 Note (See above) and $927,323.67 of principal and interest on their St George 2017 Note (see above) to L2. The Company issued a 10% Replacement Promissory Note (the “RPN”) to L2 for $1,101,698. The RPN matured on January 1, 2019, is now subject to default interest rate of 18% per annum and is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at any time at the discretion of L2 at a conversion price equal to the lowest trading price during the twenty-five (25) trading days immediately prior to the conversion date multiplied by fifty eight percent (58%), representing a forty two percent (42%) discount. During the three months ended March 31, 2018, L2 converted $245,746 of the RPN into 910,000 shares of common stock at an average conversion price of $0.2701 per share. As of March 31, 2019, and December 31, 2018, the remining principal and interest balance of the RPN is $290,057 and $521,133.

 

The Company determined that the conversion feature of the 2017 and 2018 Convertible Notes represent an embedded derivative since the Notes are convertible into a variable number of shares upon conversion. Accordingly, the 2017 Convertible Notes were not considered to be conventional debt under ASC 815-40 (formerly EITF 00-19, Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in, a Company’s Own Stock) and the embedded conversion feature was 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 is 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 are 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.

 

2019 Convertible Notes

 

On February 7, 2019, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with L2, pursuant to which the Company issued and sold a promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of up to $565,555 (the “Feb 2019 Note”), which is convertible into shares of common stock of the Company, subject to the terms, conditions and limitations set forth in the Note. The Note accrues interest at a rate of 9% per annum. The aggregate principal amount of up to $565,555 consists of a prorated original issuance discount of up to $55,555 and a $10,000 credit to L2 for transactional expenses with net consideration to the Company of up to $500,000 which will be funded in tranches. The maturity date of each tranche funded shall be six (6) months from the effective date of each payment and is the date upon which the principal sum, as well as any accrued and unpaid interest and other fees for each tranche, shall be due and payable. L2 has the right at any time to convert all or any part of the funded portion of the Note into fully paid and non-assessable shares of common stock of the Company at the Conversion Price, which is equal to 58% multiplied by the lowest VWAP during the twenty-five (25) Trading Day period ending, in Holder’s sole discretion on each conversion, on either (i) the last complete Trading Day prior to the Conversion Date or (ii) the Conversion Date (subject to adjustment as provided in the Note), subject to the occurrence of any Event of Default (as defined therein) under the Note. In connection with the funding of the initial tranche $50,000 on February 8, 2019, the Company recorded $65,555 of the Note, and also issued a common stock purchase warrant to L2 to purchase up to 70,948 shares of the Company’s common stock pursuant to the terms therein (the “L2 Warrant”) as a commitment fee. The Company recorded an initial derivative liability and derivative expense of $78,029 for the issuance of the warrant. L2 funded an additional $115,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2019, and the Company increased the loan balance by $127,777. The Company recorded an initial derivative liability on the tranches funded of the Feb 2019 Note of $325,398, a debt discount of $193,332 and an initial derivative expense of $132,00. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company recorded amortization expense of $41,611 on the Feb 2019 Note findings and their remains $151,721 of unamortized note discounts. As of March 31, 2019, the remining principal and interest balance of the FEB 2019 Note is $195,204.

Note 12 – Operating Lease Right-Of-Use Assets and Operating Lease Liabilities

 

Operating lease right-of-use assets and liabilities are recognized at the present value of the future lease payments at the lease commencement date. The interest rate used to determine the present value is our incremental borrowing rate, estimated to be 9.0%, as the interest rate implicit in most of our leases is not readily determinable.

 

On October 5, 2017, the Company agreed to lease from Mr. Friedman, a "420 Style" resort and estate property approximately one hour outside of Quebec City, Canada. The fifteen-acre estate consists of nine (9) unique guest suites, horse stables, and is within walking distance to a public golf course. A separate structure will serve as a small grow facility run by patient employees and caretakers on the property which may be toured by guests of the facility. Pursuant to the agreement, the Company will pay $8,000 per month in exchange for the Company being entitled to all rents and income generated from the property. For the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company paid and recorded $19,000 of expense, included in leased property expense, related party in the consolidated statements of operations, included herein. The Company will be responsible for all costs of the property, including, but not limited to, renovations, repairs and maintenance, insurance and utilities.

 

In adopting ASC Topic 842, Leases (Topic 842), the Company has elected the ‘package of practical expedients’, which permit it not to reassess under the new standard its prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs.

In addition, the Company elected not to apply ASC Topic 842 to arrangements with lease terms of 12 month or less. On January 1, 2019, upon adoption of ASC Topic 842, the Company recorded right-of-use assets and lease liabilities of $310,259.

In January 2017, the Company signed a five (5) year lease, beginning February 1, 2017, for approximately 6,000 square feet of office space, comprised of two floors, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Pursuant to the lease, the Company will pay $3,000 per month for the third floor of the building for the first year of the lease. The rent will increase 3% per year on February beginning in 2018 and an additional 3% per year on each successive February 1, during the term of the lease. The landlord agreed that the month of February 2017, the rent was $1,500.

Through September 30, 2017, the Company calculated the total amount of the rent for the term lease and recorded straight line rent expense of $45,417 and had made payments of $20,516. As of March 31, 2019, the Company has a balance of $24,916 in deferred rent which is included in the consolidated balance sheet. The leases for the second and third floor were cancelled in September 2017 as a result of Hurricane Irma.

Leased Properties

 

On April 28, 2014, the Company executed and closed a ten-year 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, the Company maintains a first right of refusal to purchase the property for three years. The Company has recorded $38,244 of expense (included in leased property expenses) for the years ended December 31, 2017, and 2016, respectively. The Company is currently in default of the lease agreement, as rents have not been for the second year of the lease beginning May 2015.

Pursuant to the Employment Agreement, Mr. Mundie will receive a base salary of $90,000 per annum. In the event that Mr. Mundie’s employment is terminated within three months of commencing employment with the Company and such termination is not due to Mr. Mundie’s voluntary resignation (other than at the request of the Board or the majority shareholders of the Company), Mr. Mundie will be entitled to continued payment of his base salary for the remainder of the Agreement. In addition to the base salary, the Company will grant to Employee seventy- five thousand (75,000) shares of the Company's common stock in Employee's name to be held in escrow for the benefit of Employee (the "Company Common Stock").

Legal & Other

 

On March 2, 2015, the Company, the Company’s CEO and the Company’s CFO at the time were named in a civil complaint filed by Erick Rodriguez in the District Court in Clark County, Nevada (the “DCCC”). The complaint alleges that Mr. Rodriguez never received 250,000 shares of Series B preferred stock that were initially approved by the Board of Directors in 2012, subject to the completion of a merger of a company controlled by Mr. Rodriguez. Since the merger was never completed, the shares were never certificated to Mr. Rodriguez. On March 21, 2017, the DCC agreed to Set Aside the Entry of Default against the Defendants. Mr. Rodriguez resigned in June 2013.  On April 12, 2018, an Arbitrator issued a final award to Rodriguez in the amount of $399,291. The Company and the Company’s counsel believe the Arbitrator denied a number of detailed objections to the award, which cited clear mistakes as to Nevada law and to the facts. The Company recorded a loss on legal matter, included in other expenses for the year ended December 31, 2017. On May 3, 2018, the Arbitrator issued an amended final award of $631,537, inclusive of interest and legal fees. The Company recorded a loss of $232,246 on the legal matter, included in other expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The Company has retained a Nevada attorney who is an expert in fighting attempts to convert arbitration awards into judgments in Nevada courts, to work with our arbitration counsel. A hearing is scheduled on June 12, 2018 in District Court in Clark County Nevada to confirm or reject the award. The Company will vigorously defend any adverse ruling including appeals to the Nevada Supreme Court. 

 

 20 

 

On May 6, 2016, the Company, B. Michael Freidman and Barry Hollander (former CFO) were named as defendants in a Summons/Complaint filed by Justin Braune (the “Plaintiff”) in Palm Beach County Civil Court, Florida (the “PBCCC”). The complaint alleges that Mr. Braune was entitled to shares of common stock of the Company. On December 5, 2016, the PBCCC set aside a court default that had been previously issued. The defendants have answered the complaint, including the defenses that Mr. Braune advised the Company’s transfer agent and the Company in his letter of resignation dated November 4, 2015, clearly stating that he has relinquished all shares of common stock. The Company has filed a counterclaim suit against the Plaintiff, as well as sanctions against the Plaintiff and their counsel.

 

Note 14 – Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under standards issued by the FASB. Under those standards, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for future tax benefits or consequences attributable to temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. A valuation allowance is provided for significant deferred tax assets when it is more likely than not that such assets will not be realized through future operations.

 

No provision for federal income taxes has been recorded due to the available net operating loss carry forwards of approximately $9,918,962 will expire in various years through 2032. Future tax benefits which may arise as a result of these losses have not been recognized in these financial statements, as their realization is determined not likely to occur and accordingly, the Company has recorded a valuation allowance for the future tax loss carry forwards.

 

The actual income tax provisions differ from the expected amounts calculated by applying the statutory income tax rate to the Company's loss before income taxes.  The components of these differences are as follows at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018:

 

  

March 31,

2019

 

December 31,

2018

       
Net tax loss carry-forwards  $9,817,962   $9,584,964

Expected tax recovery   2,061,272    2,012,842 
Change in valuation allowance   (2,061,772)   (2,012,842)
Income tax provision  $—     $—   

 

 

Components of deferred tax asset:      
Non capital tax loss carry forwards  $2,061,272     $2,012,842    
Less: valuation allowance   (2,061,272)   (2,012,842)
Net deferred tax asset  $—     $—   

 

Note 15 – Property, Plant and Equipment

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, and except for land, depreciation is provided by use of a straight-line method 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. In February, 2017, the Company entered into a land purchase contract to acquire approximately 80 acres including water and mineral rights. The total cost of the land was $129,555. The Company paid $41,554 at closing and issued a note payable for $88,000. The Company is on the deed of trust of the property with a remaining note balance of $21,500 due the seller as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. The estimated useful lives of property and equipment are as follows:

 

Furniture and equipment 5 years
Manufacturing equipment 7 years

 

 21 

 

The Company's property and equipment consisted of the following at March 31, 2019, and December 31, 2018:

 

   December 31,
2018
  December 31,
2018
Furniture and equipment  $215,006   $215,006 
Land   129,555    129,555 
Accumulated depreciation   (72,026)   (61,928)
Balance  $272,535   $282,633 

 

Depreciation expense of $10,098 and $8,430 was recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2019, and 2018, respectively.

 

Note 15 – Going Concern

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As of March 31, 2019, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $27,942,729 and working capital deficit of $3,547,155, inclusive of a derivative liability of $1,728,062. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

  

Note 16 – Subsequent Events

 

On April 3, 2019, the Company received the next funding tranche of $75,000 from L2 and increased the Feb 2019 Note balance by $83,333.

Principal and interest on the Power Up Debentures is due and payable on April 26, 2020, and the Power Up Debenture is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock beginning six months from the Funding Date, at a VCP. The VCP is calculated as the lowest closing bid price during the twenty (20) trading days immediately prior to the conversion date multiplied by sixty three percent (63%), representing a thirty seven percent (37%) discount.

 

On April 30, 2019, the Company along with 1919 Clinic, LLC (“1919”) signed an option to purchase the building 1919 is currently operating in, from the owner for $1,000,000. A non-refundable deposit of $50,000 was paid in consideration of the one- month option to purchase the building.

 

On May 7, 2019, the Company received a funding tranche of $150,000 from L2 and increased the Feb 2019 Note balance by $166,667.

 

The Company has evaluated subsequent events through the date the financial statements were issued and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company has determined that there are no other such events that warrant disclosure or recognition in the financial statements, except as stated herein.

This report includes forward-looking statements. Generally, the words “believes,” “anticipates,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “intend,” “estimate,” “continue,” and similar expressions or the negative thereof or comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, including the matters set forth in this report or other reports or documents we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time, which could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those projected. Undue reliance should not be placed on these forward-looking statements which speak only as of the date hereof. We undertake no obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

 

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018.

 

The independent auditor’s reports on our financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 includes a “going concern” explanatory paragraph that describes substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to the factors prompting the explanatory paragraph are discussed below and also in Note 15 to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

While our financial statements are presented on the basis that we are a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business over a reasonable length of time, our auditor has raised substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Liquidity and Capital Resources.

 

Liquidity is the ability of an enterprise to generate adequate amounts of cash to meet its needs for cash requirements. As of March 31, 2019, we had cash and cash equivalents of $10,493, a decrease of $66,523, from $77,016 as of December 31, 2018. At March 31, 2019, we had current liabilities of $3,605,231 (including $1,728,062 of non-cash derivative liabilities) compared to current assets of $58,076 which resulted in working capital deficit of $3,547,155. The current liabilities are mostly comprised of accounts payable, accrued expenses, convertible debt, derivative liabilities, lease liabilities and notes payable.

 

Currently, we have limited operating capital. The Company anticipates that it will require a minimum of $2,000,000 of working capital to complete substantially all of its desired business activity for the next twelve months, including bringing new products to market. The Company has earned limited revenue from its business operations. Our current capital and our other existing resources will be sufficient only to provide a limited amount of working capital, and, to date, the revenues generated from our business operations have not been sufficient to fund our operations or planned growth. As noted above, we will require additional capital to continue to operate our business, and to further expand our business. We may be unable to obtain the additional capital required. Our inability to generate capital or raise additional funds when required will have a negative impact on our operations, business development and financial results.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, net cash used in operating activities was $276,523 compared to $460,918 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The Company had a net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019, of $952,374 partially offset by non-cash expenses of derivative expenses of $503,790 and the amortization of discounts and financing fees on convertible notes of $215,585, depreciation expense of $10,098 and amortization of deferred financing costs of $33,891.

 

The Company had net income for the three months ended March 31, 2018 of $1,870,075 primarily attributable to a gain of $2,901,355 in the change of the fair value of derivative liabilities, partially offset by non-cash expenses of stock- based compensation of $97,500, the initial derivative liability expense of $44,206 on new convertible notes issued and the amortization of discounts and financing fees on convertible notes of $203,450, loss on debt settlement of $58,759 and loss on legal matter of $232,246.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2019, net cash used in investing activities was $20,000 compared to $54,563 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. For the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company purchased furniture and equipment of $0 compared to $19,563 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company expended $20,000 and $35,000, respectively, to invest in two separate five- year exclusive licensing and operation agreements.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $230,000 and $411,942 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The 2019 activity was comprised of proceeds received of $215,000 from the issuance of $248,931 of convertible notes and $15,000 related to Stock Purchase Agreements. The activity three months ended March 31, 2018 was comprised of proceeds received related to the issuance of convertible promissory notes of $275,000 and $340,000 related to Stock Purchase Agreements with St. George. The Company also made payments of $178,058 of principal and accrued interest on convertible promissory notes and $25,000 on notes payable.

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, cash and cash equivalents decreased by $66,523 compared to $103,539 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Ending cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2019, was $10,493 compared to $201,350 at December 31, 2018.

  

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition or results of operations.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The preparation of our financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires our management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Our management periodically evaluates the estimates and judgments made. Management bases its estimates and judgments on historical experience and on various factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates as a result of different assumptions or conditions.

 

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America ("US GAAP"). The consolidated financial statements of the Company include the consolidated accounts of Agritek and its wholly owned subsidiaries AVHI, Prohibition Products, Inc. (“PPI”), and the American Hemp Trading Company, Inc., a Colorado corporation (dba 77 Acres, Inc.). PPI, a Florida corporation, was originally formed on July 1, 2013 as The American Hemp Trading Company, Inc., a Florida corporation (“Hemp FL”) and on August 27, 2014, Hemp FL changed its name to PPI. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASC 606 — Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Under ASC 606, the Company recognizes revenue from the commercial sales of products, licensing agreements and contracts to perform pilot studies by applying the following steps: (1) identify the contract with a customer; (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (3) determine the transaction price; (4) allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation in the contract; and (5) recognize revenue when each performance obligation is satisfied. For the comparative periods, revenue has not been adjusted and continues to be reported under ASC 605 — Revenue Recognition. Under ASC 605, revenue is recognized when the following criteria are met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) the performance of service has been rendered to a customer or delivery has occurred; (3) the amount of fee to be paid by a customer is fixed and determinable; and (4) the collectability of the fee is reasonably assured. There was no impact on the Company’s financial statements as a result of adopting Topic 606 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018.

  

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.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

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

 

 26 

 

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 March 31, 2019, and December 31, 2018, based on the above criteria, the Company has an allowance for doubtful accounts of $44,068.

 

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.

 

Notes receivable

 

As of March 31, 2019, the Company has recorded notes receivable the following:

 

  $190,000 pursuant to a five (5) year operational and exclusive licensing agreement with a third party who leases a 15,000-sq. ft. approved cultivation facility located in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

  

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and Long-Lived Assets to be Disposed

 

We evaluate long-lived assets and identifiable intangible assets with finite useful lives in accordance with ASC 350-30 and ASC 360 (formerly SFAS No. 144, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets), and accordingly, management reviews our long-lived assets and identifiable intangible assets with finite useful lives for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable. We recognize an impairment loss when the sum of the future undiscounted net cash flows expected to be realized from the asset is less than its carrying amount. If an asset is considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its fair value. Considerable judgment is necessary to estimate the fair value of the assets and accordingly, actual results could vary significantly from such estimates. Our most significant estimates and judgments relating to the long-lived asset impairments include the timing and amount of projected future cash flows.

   

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. 

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; 

 27 

 

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.

 

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 March 31, 2019, stock, common stock equivalents and other potentially dilutive securities, if any, outstanding during the period. As of March 31, 2019, there were warrants and options to purchase 320,426 shares of common stock and the Company’s outstanding convertible debt is convertible into approximately 4,435,649 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. For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company recorded stock- based compensation of $0 and $97,500, respectively.

 

The independent auditors’ reports on our financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 includes a “going concern” explanatory paragraph that describes substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to the factors prompting the explanatory paragraph are discussed below and also in Note 10 to the consolidated financial statements filed herein.

 

While our financial statements are presented on the basis that we are a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business over a reasonable length of time, our auditors have raised a substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

Not applicable to smaller reporting companies.

 

Item 4. 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 as of March 31, 2019 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.

 

 28 

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Rule 13a-15 or 15d-15 of the Exchange Act that occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2019, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

 

Part II. Other Information

 

Item 1Legal Proceedings

 

On March 2, 2015, the Company, the Company’s CEO and the Company’s CFO at the time were named in a civil complaint filed by Erick Rodriguez in the District Court in Clark County, Nevada (the “DCCC”). The complaint alleges that Mr. Rodriguez never received 250,000 shares of Series B preferred stock that were initially approved by the Board of Directors in 2012, subject to the completion of a merger of a company controlled by Mr. Rodriguez. Since the merger was never completed, the shares were never certificated to Mr. Rodriguez. On March 21, 2017, the DCC agreed to Set Aside the Entry of Default against the Defendants. Mr. Rodriguez resigned in June 2013. On December 10, 2018, the parties agreed to a confidential settlement on the matter. The Company recorded losses of $0 and $232,246, on the legal matter, included in other expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

 

On May 6, 2016, the Company, B. Michael Freidman and Barry Hollander (former CFO) were named as defendants in a Summons/Complaint filed by Justin Braune (the “Plaintiff”) in Palm Beach County Civil Court, Florida (the “PBCCC”). The complaint alleges that Mr. Braune was entitled to shares of common stock of the Company. On December 5, 2016, the PBCCC set aside a court default that had been previously issued. The defendants have answered the complaint, including the defenses that Mr. Braune advised the Company’s transfer agent and the Company in his letter of resignation dated November 4, 2015, clearly stating that he has relinquished all shares of common stock. The Company has filed a counterclaim suit against the Plaintiff, as well as sanctions against the Plaintiff and their counsel.
