  PART I

 

ITEM 1. Business.

 

Background

 

Kaya Holdings, Inc., was incorporated in Delaware in 1993 under the name Gourmet Market, Inc. and has engaged in a number of businesses. Its name was changed on May 11, 2007 to Netspace International Holdings, Inc. (“ Netspace ”). Netspace acquired 100% of the capital stock of Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc., a Florida corporation in January 2010 in a stock for stock transaction and issued 100,000 shares of Series C convertible preferred stock to existing shareholders of the Florida corporation. The Company’s name was changed in October 2010 from Netspace International Holdings, Inc. to Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc.

 

From 2010 through 2014 the Company was engaged in seeking to develop a biofuels business. In January 2015, the Company determined that it was in the best interests of its stockholders to discontinue its biofuel development activities, and to instead leverage its agricultural and business development experience and focus all its resources on the development of legal medical and recreational marijuana opportunities in the United States and in select international markets.

 

In January of 2014 KAYS incorporated a subsidiary, Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc. a Florida corporation (“ MJAI ”). Through entities controlled by MJAI, KAYS has focused on the development of opportunities within the legal recreational and medical marijuana sectors in the United States. In March 2014, MJAI, subsidiary, applied for and was awarded its first license to operate a Medical Marijuana Dispensary (an “ MMD ”). The Company developed the Kaya Shack™ brand for its retail operations and on July 3, 2014 opened its first Kaya Shack™ Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Portland, Oregon, thereby becoming the first publicly traded U.S. company to own and operate an MMD. Initial customer acceptance and media coverage was very positive, including many references to KAYS as the “Starbucks of Medical Marijuana” by television news stations, news print publications and online news sources. In March 2015, the Company changed its name to Kaya Holdings, Inc. to better reflect its new plan of operations. 

 

In April 2015 KAYS commenced its own medical marijuana grow operations for the cultivation and harvesting of legal marijuana thereby becoming the first publicly traded U.S. company to own a majority interest in a vertically integrated legal marijuana enterprise in the United States. In October 2015, concurrent with Oregon commencing legal sales of recreational marijuana through MMDs, KAYS opened its second retail operation in Salem, Oregon, the Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore. Oregon. During 2015, the Company also consolidated its grow operations and manufacturing operations into a single facility in Portland, Oregon.

 

Recent Developments

 

OLCC Licensing

 

In 2016, Oregon began the process to transition legal marijuana sales from Oregon Health Authority (“ OHA ”) licensed MMDs and grow operations to Oregon Liquor Control Commission (“ OLCC ”) licensed recreational marijuana retailers and producer and processing facilities. Effective January 1, 2017, all retailers of recreational marijuana were required to have a recreational marijuana sales license issued by the OLLC for each retail outlet operated. The Company applied for OLLC licenses for its two initial Kaya Shack™ retail outlets and received an OLCC recreational license for its existing South Salem Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore prior to the January 1, 2017 deadline. However, issuance of the OLCC license for the Portland, Oregon outlet was delayed because of the need to resolve various local issues with the City of Portland. Accordingly, from January 1, 2017 until the present, sales at the Portland, Oregon location were limited to medical marijuana.

 

On January 20, 2017, we entered into an agreement whereby the City of Portland agreed to license our Portland Kaya Shack™ retail outlet. Since that time, we completed all OLCC Licensing requirements, on March 29, 2017 passed our retail license inspection and expect to receive our OLCC recreational license for the Portland Kaya Shack™ outlet by not later than April 30, 2017, at which time, we will be able to commence legal recreational marijuana sales at that location.

 

 

Additional Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstores

 

During 2016, the Company focused a significant portion of its efforts on developing two additional Kaya Shack Marijuana Superstores, including identifying and leasing suitable locations, completing necessary build out and applying for the requisite OLCC recreational marijuana retailer licenses. On March 21, 2017, the Company announced that it had secured the OLCC recreational retailer marijuana license and had opened its third retail outlet, a 2,600 square foot Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore in North Salem, Oregon. We are completing construction of and the OLCC licensing process for our fourth outlet, a third Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore, which will be located in Central Salem, Oregon and which we anticipate will open during the second quarter of 2017. In addition to the four Kaya Shack™ retail marijuana stores described above, the Company plans to identify and lease locations for, license and seek to open up to four additional Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstores in other Oregon markets over the next eighteen to twenty-four months, as well as explore opportunities in other states to increase its retail footprint. Additionally, the Company is exploring opportunities to further its operation in Oregon and elsewhere through the acquisition of currently licensed and operating retail operations, which can be converted to the Kaya Shack™ model.

 

Expansion of Grow and Manufacturing Operations

 

On March 21, 2017, KAYS announced that it was in the process of expanding its grow and manufacturing operations and had retained a realtor to assist in identifying a suitable 30-60 acre tract of land in Oregon which would permit KAYS to expand its grow operations to the maximum space currently allowed by law utilizing a mix of indoor and greenhouse cultivation. KAYS believes that the acquisition of a property will position the Company for future development, including increased Marijuana Canopy production, development of marijuana processing facilities and other cannabis related endeavors (subject to local zoning restrictions or liberalization of restrictions). As part of this expansion, KAYS ceased operations of its Portland grow facility at the end of March 2017, arranged to maintain its genetics library of over 30 strains of cannabis at an OHA-licensed medical grow site and contracted with farmers to meet demand until the new facility is secured, built and fully operational.

 

$2.1 Million Financing

 

In March 2017, the Company completed a $2.1 million financing with an institutional investor (the “ Investor ”) who had previously furnished KAYS with $1.2 million in financing, pursuant to a financing agreement (the “ Financing Agreement ”) entered into between the Company and the Investor in December 2016. Pursuant to the Financing Agreement, the Investor purchased $2.1 million in principal amount of convertible notes (the “ Notes ”) from the Company as follows:

 

$400,000 in principal amount of Notes which are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.04;

 

$700,000 in principal amount of Notes which are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.07; and

 

$1,000,000 in principal amount of Notes which are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.10.

 

The purchase price for the Notes is equal to the principal amount thereof. The Notes have a term of two years from issuance and bear interest at the rate of eight percent (8%) annum, which accrues and is payable to together with interest at maturity. The Investor may convert the principal amount of the Notes (as well as other notes it currently holds as referenced above), together with accrued but unpaid interest thereon, into shares at the applicable conversion price, at any time or from time to time prior to maturity. The conversion price is subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations and similar transactions. The Notes also provide that at no time may they be convertible if the number of shares being issued upon conversion to and then held by the Investor would result in the Investor beneficially owning in excess of 4.99% of the Company’s then outstanding shares of common stock, after giving effect to the proposed conversion. As of the date of this Annual Report, the Investor has not converted any of the Notes into shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

 

The Notes were issued pursuant to the exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Regulation D thereunder. The proceeds from the offer and sale of Notes are and will be used to fund the Company’s 2017 growth plan, including expansion of our chain of Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstores in Oregon, expansion of our marijuana grow facility and manufacturing operations and introducing new Kaya Shack™ branded cannabis products.

Market Overview

  

Twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana in some capacity. Additionally, eight states (Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Washington State) and Washington, DC have approved the implementation of legal recreational marijuana use, with active legal cannabis economies flourishing in Colorado, Oregon and Washington. As Melia Robinson of Business Insider stated, “After a historic election cycle, which saw four states pass ballot initiatives legalizing nonmedical marijuana, one in five Americans now live in a state where it's legal to smoke weed without a doctor's letter.”

 

According to cannabis research firm Arcview, sales of legal marijuana in North America rose by 34% to $6.9 billion in 2016, and based on estimates from investment firm Cowen & Co., U.S. legal sales could reach $50 billion by 2026. For added context, ArcView estimates that North American black market sales totaled $46.4 billion last year.

 

Arcview projects sales will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 25% through 2021, when the North American market is expected to top $20.2 billion in sales. "The only consumer industry categories I've seen reach $5 billion in annual spending and then post anything like 25% compound annual growth in the next five years are cable television (19%) in the 1990s and the broadband internet (29%) in the 2000s," Tom Adams, editor in chief of Arcview Market Research, said in a statement.

 

Estimates from various sources for the size of the long term market range from up to an excess of $100 billion if Federal Prohibition is repealed and marijuana sales become legal in all 50 states and Washington D.C. (for perspective beer is approximately a $100 billion market, with wine just under $30 billion and coffee approximately $12 billion).

 

The Kaya Shack™ Brand

 

 

 

 

Kaya Holdings operates the Kaya Shack™ brand of medical marijuana dispensaries and recreational marijuana stores.

 

Kaya Holdings operates three recreational marijuana retail outlets and medical marijuana dispensaries in Oregon under the Kaya Shack™ and anticipates opening a fourth location during the second quarter of 2017. In addition to these four Kaya Shack™ retail marijuana stores, the Company plans to identify and lease locations for, license and seek to open up to four additional Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstores in other Oregon markets over the next eighteen to twenty-four months, as well as explore opportunities in other states to increase its retail footprint. Additionally, the Company is exploring opportunities to further its operation in Oregon and elsewhere through the acquisition of currently licensed and operating retail operations, which can be converted to the Kaya Shack™ model.

 

Dubbed by the mainstream press as the “ Starbucks of Marijuana ” after our first outlet opened in July, 2014, our operating concept is simple to deliver a consistent customer experience (quality products, fair prices and superior customer service) to a broad and diverse base of customers. Kaya Shack™ meets the quality needs of the “ marijuana enthusiast”, the comfort and atmosphere of all including “ soccer moms ” and the price sensitivities of casual smokers.

 

The Kaya Shack™ brand communicates positive thinking and joy, with signs adorning the walls that read “ It’s a Good Day to have a Good Day ,” “ Some of our Happiest Days Haven’t Even Happened Yet ,” and our signature “ Be Kind .”

 

Kaya Shack™ retail outlets are open 7 days a week from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm. Operations follow an operational manual that details procedures for 18 areas of operation including safety, compliance, store opening, store closing, merchandising, handling of cash, inventory control, product intake, store appearance and employee conduct.

 

In compliance with regulations, all marijuana and marijuana infused products sold through our stores are quality tested by independent labs to assure adherence to strict quality and purity standards.

  

Kaya Shack™ Retail Outlets

 

I. Kaya Shack™ , 1719 SE Hawthorne Blvd., Portland, Oregon

 

 

 

 

 

   

Our flagship Hawthorne Boulevard Kaya Shack™ store opened July 3, 2014. The location is prime Portland real estate, located in an area that many term as “the Greenwich Village of Portland”.

 

 

The Portland facility rotates through approximately 100 different strains throughout the year and in any given month features over 35 popular strains of marijuana including our proprietary, high-grade “Kaya Kush” (independent testing performed on 3/10/2016 confirms a total THC/Cannabinoid content of approximately 28%). Our stores also feature various concentrates, including butane hash oil (B.H.O.) and CO2 oil extract (wax, shatter) which range in potency from approximately 40% to over 80% THC, as well as high grade Oils and Tinctures, high CBD – low THC strains and “Kaya Candies”, “Kaya Caramels” and an assortment of cookies and cakes for patients who do not smoke.

 

Our Portland store initially operated as an MMD. In connection with the transition of recreational marijuana retailer licenses from the OHA to the OLCC, we applied for an OLCC license for the facility. However, issuance of the OLCC license for the Portland, Oregon outlet was delayed because of the need to resolve various local issues with the City of Portland. Accordingly, from January 1, 2017 until the present, sales at the Portland, Oregon location were limited to medical marijuana.

 

On January 20, 2017, we entered into an agreement whereby the City of Portland agreed to license our Portland Kaya Shack™ retail outlet. Since that time, we completed all OLCC Licensing requirements, on March 29, 2017 passed our retail license inspection and expect to receive our OLCC recreational license for the Portland Kaya Shack™ outlet by not later than April 30, 2017, at which time, we will be able to commence legal recreational marijuana sales at that location.

 

 

 

 

II. Kaya Shack ™ Marijuana Superstore, South Salem, Oregon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our second retail outlet (and our first Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore) opened for business on October 17, 2015 in South Salem, Oregon in time to take advantage of early recreational sales by MMDs.

  

The store is located in first class strip mall space adjacent to “Little Caesars Pizza” and “Aaron Rents”, with a footprint roughly three times the size of our first Kaya Shack™ outlet in Portland. The location and floor plan was carefully chosen with an eye towards concept expansion to enhance revenues and broaden branding opportunities.

 

In addition to the recreational and medical marijuana products as offered at our Hawthorne location, the space allows for additional products and concept innovations to be introduced. These include the Kaya Café Juice Bar ™ (featuring THC and CBD enhanced juices and beverages), the Kaya Clone Room ™ (supplying marijuana plants and home cultivation accessories) and additional unique on-site concepts.

 

Our South Salem Kaya Shack™ Marijuana superstore received its OLCC recreational marijuana retailer license prior to the January 1, 2017 deadline to do so.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

III. Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore, North Salem, Oregon  

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On March 21, 2017, the Company announced that it had secured the OLCC recreational retailer marijuana license and had opened its third retail outlet, a 2,600 square foot Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore in North Salem, Oregon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As with the South Salem Store, the location is first class space, adjacent to Starbucks Coffee. This is our largest location to date and is intended to be the model for future Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstores. We selected this location with an eye towards completing market penetration of the Salem Metropolitan Area, which hosts a population of approximately 400,000 people. We also intend to expand our product offerings here as well as utilize the additional space to host community events we hope will help make the Kaya Shack™ a destination for cannabis consumers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IV. Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore, Central Salem, Oregon

 

 

 

 

We are completing construction of and the OLCC licensing process for our fourth outlet, a third Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore, which will be located in Central Salem, Oregon and which we anticipate will open during the second quarter of 2017. As with the other Salem, Oregon outlet, the store is located in first class space, adjacent to fast food restaurants stores and near popular national retail chain stores. It also has a footprint of approximately 2,600 square feet and utilizes the Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore model reflected in our third outlet and substantially completes our geographic penetration of the Salem, Oregon market.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kaya Shack™ Home Delivery

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In early February of 2017, the Company began the process of filing applications to add Home Delivery Service for three of its Kaya Shack™ retail marijuana stores at the advice of one of their OLCC examiners. As of the date of this Annual Report, the Company has received approvals from the OLCC to add Home Delivery to their two currently OLCC licensed locations, expects to receive approval for Home Delivery at its third location in conjunction with the anticipated issuance of its OLCC location license and is also applying for Home Delivery licensing at its fourth retail outlet, which is currently under construction.

 

In addition to providing added value and convenience for our customers, extending visibility and building brand recognition for the Kaya Shack™ brand, we believe that Home Delivery provides greater market penetration, by allowing sales throughout the geographic area that our stores are licensed in. There is no limit to the number of delivery vehicles that can service an individual area using just one store as a home base, so in effect we intend to use this service to construct additional “virtual” Kaya Shacks™ without the added costs of additional brick and mortar locations.

 

On April 11, 2017 the Company took delivery of its first four Fiat 500 cars to begin building their Kaya Car™ Home Delivery Service fleet. The cars are presently being customized with distinctive Kaya Shack™ vehicle wrapping featuring the Company’s branding logos and colors, and the Company is developing the Kaya Shack™ Delivery App for use by its customers to order “Fast, Free Delivery” of the complete line of both medical and recreational grade Kaya Shack™ cannabis products.

 

The Company intends to initiate its Kaya Car™ Home Delivery Service within the next 30-60 days, contemporaneously with a grand opening celebration for all four then OLCC-Licensed Kaya Shack™ retail marijuana stores and to commence the to move to the next stage of branding and retail development.

 

 

 

 

Kaya Farms™ Cannabis and Cannabis Products

 

General

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since April 2015, Kaya Holdings has developed, operated and expanded its Kaya Farms™ West Coast Base of Operations, housing marijuana grow operations and a manufacturing facility. These operations enabled us to develop over 30 strains of cannabis and to provide ours Kaya Shack™ retail outlets with top grade connoisseur quality marijuana products including flower, concentrates and extracts.

 

 

 

On March 21, 2017, KAYS announced that it was in the process of expanding its grow and manufacturing operations and had retained a realtor to assist in identifying a suitable 30-60 acre tract of land in Oregon which would permit KAYS to expand its grow operations to the maximum space currently allowed by law utilizing a mix of indoor and greenhouse cultivation. KAYS believes that the acquisition of a property will position the Company for future development, including increased Marijuana Canopy production, development of marijuana processing facilities and other cannabis related endeavors (subject to local zoning restrictions or liberalization of restrictions). As part of this expansion, KAYS ceased operations of its Portland grow facility at the end of March 2017, arranged to maintain its genetics library of over 30 strains of cannabis at an OHA licensed medical grow site and contracted with farmers to meet demand until the new facility is secured, built and fully operational.

The following pages contain testing results of Kaya Farms™ flower produced throughout the year which make up part of our strain library of mother plants which we will use to help populate our new and improved grow and marijuana manufacturing facility.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kaya Buddie™ Strain Specific Cannabis Cigarettes

 

 

In 2016 the Company introduced a signature line of strain-specific connoisseur-grade, pre-rolled cannabis cigarettes branded as “Kaya Buddies™”. The brand, marketed under the tagline “Buds with Benefits”, features over 25 different strains of connoisseur-grade, high quality cannabis and proprietary specialty blends. The Kaya Buddies™ cannabis cigarettes, made from 100% cannabis bud only, was launched in mid-March in the Kaya Shack™ stores in Oregon and are targeted to service the exploding legal recreational marijuana market.

 

 

Kaya Buddies™ cannabis cigarettes have consistently been very well received by both older medical patients and recreational users new to cannabis. Although they are first being marketed through our internal retail network they are also being targeted for potential distribution lines to other dispensaries.

 

 

 

 

Other Potential Markets

 

We believe that revenues and profitability will be enhanced through our planned opening of additional retail outlets utilizing the Kaya Shack™ brand and model in our chain, as well as economies of scale achieved by being a multi-location retail chain and being vertically integrated with grow and manufacturing operations. Ultimately, we believe that we can successfully enter other markets as they open up by applying our “brand” retail chain and vertically integrated grow and manufacture model to other states that legalize recreational marijuana use. Where applicable, we will seek to leverage our public company status to finance organic growth and enable acquisitions of existing locations for the Kaya Shack brand, as well as look to acquire and grow additional brands.

 

On November 8, 2016, California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada voted to legalize recreational marijuana, while Arkansas, Florida and North Dakota approved medical cannabis initiatives. Montana, which legalized medical marijuana in 2004, also passed a measure to set up commercial cultivation operations and dispensaries.

 

The California recreational cannabis market is by far the largest potential market in the country, and our operations in Oregon allow for a natural progression and expansion down the I-5 corridor into California. Florida could be a potentially large market for us as well, because we believe that KAYS would have a distinct advantage in the state, as it is one of the few Florida-based entities whose management has significant experience in owning and operating MMDs and grow and manufacturing operations. These markets are substantial, and their development could lead to $7-$8 billion in additional annual retail cannabis sales, according to Marijuana Business Daily’s preliminary estimates.

 

 

 

 

 

Growth Strategy

 

The Company has established a well-defined strategy for entering and maintaining a strong presence in the legal marijuana sector. The cornerstones of this strategy include:

 

All operations are to be conducted in accordance with state and local laws and regulations and guidance outlined in the U.S. Department of Justice “Cole Memo” dated August 29, 2013.

 

The Company will seek to operate in a vertically integrated manner (grow, process and sell) wherever permitted by law. In states where vertical integration is not permitted, the Company plans to determine which of the permitted activities offers the most potential for growth and value creation.

 

The Company will seek to engage, sponsor or lead local advocacy and lobbying groups that have a significant impact on the evolution and character of laws and the regulations under which legal marijuana operations are implemented in select markets.

 

The Company shall work with law enforcement and government officials to insure compliance with all regulations.

 

 

 

Marketing and Sales

  

The Company will only market its legal marijuana as in compliance with applicable state law.

 

The Company employs a marketing campaign consisting of four cornerstones:

 

Promoting and establishing the Kaya Shack™ brand.

 

A positive and active online presence.

 

Daily specials and promotions.

 

Quirky and fun holiday specials.

 

Our core strategic marketing objectives include:

 

Establish the Kaya Shack™ Brand – positioning the Company’s brand to have positive and value related associations with all prospective and existing customers.

 

Operate Cooperatively - cooperation, as a strategy, helps develop a network of suppliers and marketing channels able to promote Kaya Shack™.

 

Deliver Value - customer value is achieved when the perceived value of what we sell along with the value of the experience we deliver exceeds the price we charge.

 

Drive Customer Traffic - the only two ways to increase store income is to sell more to our existing customers and attract new customers. Programs are in place to accomplish both tasks.

 

Government Regulation

 

We are subject to general business regulations and laws, as well as regulations and laws directly applicable to our operations. As we continue to expand the scope of our operations, the application of existing laws and regulations could include matters such as pricing, advertising, consumer protection, quality of products, and intellectual property ownership. In addition, we will also be subject to new laws and regulations directly applicable to our activities.

 

Any existing or new legislation applicable to us could expose us to substantial liability, including significant expenses necessary to comply with such laws and regulations, which could hinder or prevent the growth of our business.

 

Federal, state and local laws and regulations governing legal recreational and medical marijuana use are broad in scope and are subject to evolving interpretations, which could require us to incur substantial costs associated with compliance. In addition, violations of these laws or allegations of such violations could disrupt our planned business and adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations. In addition, it is possible that additional or revised federal, state and local laws and regulations may be enacted in the future governing the legal marijuana industry. There can be no assurance that we will be able to comply with any such laws and regulations and its failure to do so could significantly harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.  

 

 

Competition

  

The legal marijuana sector is rapidly growing and the Company faces significant competition in the operation of retail outlets, MMDs and grow facilities. Many of these competitors will have far greater experience, more extensive industry contacts and greater financial resources than the Company. There can be no assurance that we can adequately compete to succeed in our business plan.

 

Employees

 

As of the date of this Annual Report, our Oregon operations have a total of seventeen (17) part-time store employees including budtenders, trimmers, growers, and 4 full-time employees- a Store Manager, a Sales and Marketing Coordinator, the Director of Dispensary and Grow Operations and a Master Grower. Additionally, we engage several consultants to assist with daily duties and business plan implementation and execution. Additional employees will be hired and other consultants engaged in the future as our business expands. 

 

 

 

ITEM 1A. Risk Factors.

 

We have a limited operating history with our current business .

 

The Company was incorporated in 1993 and has engaged in a number of businesses as both a private and as a publicly held company, including the online sale of specialty foods, online marketing and website development.

 

KAYS’s legal marijuana business, which it has focused on since 2014, only commenced generating more than a limited level of revenues subsequent to the commencement of legal recreational marijuana sales in Oregon on October 1, 2015. Accordingly, our operations continue to be subject to all the problems, expenses, difficulties, complications and delays encountered in an early stage business. Their can be no assurance that the Company will generate significant revenues or operate at a profit.

 

The Company will require additional financing to become commercially viable.

 

The Company’s current legal marijuana operations can be capital intensive.

 

During the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, we raised approximately $1,185,000 and $940,000, respectively, through a series of private of debt and equity offerings to finance operations for its legal marijuana operations in Oregon.

 

The Company incurred net losses of $19,849,262 and $3,225,394 for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The majority of our net loss during the year ended December 31, 2016 was a result of the derivative liabilities from the conversion of debt in the year ended December 31, 2016 and from the stabilization of our stock prices the reduces the volatility factors used in the derivative calculations. At December 31, 2016, we had a total stockholders' deficit of $ 20,990,060 and a working capital deficiency of $9,417,677. Their can be no assurance that the Company will become commercially viable without additional financing, the availability and terms of which are uncertain. If the Company can not secure necessary capital when needed on commercially reasonable terms, its business, condition (financial and otherwise) and commercial viability may be harmed. Although management believes that it will be able to successfully execute its business plan, which includes third party financing and the raising of capital to meet the Company’s future liquidity needs, there can be no assurances in this regard. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

 

We currently rely on certain key individuals, and the loss of one of these key individuals could have an adverse effect on the Company.

 

Our success depends to a certain degree upon certain key members of our management. These individuals are a significant factor in our growth and success. The loss of the services of such members of management could have a material adverse effect on our Company.

 

The Company’s success will be dependent in part upon its ability to attract qualified personnel and consultants.

 

The Company’s success will be dependent in part upon its ability to attract qualified creative marketing, sales and development professionals. The inability to do so on favorable terms may harm the Company’s proposed business.

 

KAYS must effectively meet the challenges of managing expanding operations.

 

The Company’s business plan anticipates that operations will undergo significant expansion in 2017 and beyond. This expansion will require the Company manage a larger and more complex organization, which could place a significant strain on our managerial, operational and financial resources. Management may not succeed with these efforts. Failure to expand in an efficient manner could cause expenses to be greater than anticipated, revenues to grow more slowly than expected and could otherwise have an adverse effect on the business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

 

Marijuana remains illegal in the United States under federal law .

 

Notwithstanding its legalization for recreational and/or medical use by a growing number of states, the growing, transport, possession or selling of marijuana continues to be illegal under federal law. Although the Obama administration has made a policy decision to allow implementation of state laws legalizing recreational and/or medical marijuana use and not to federally prosecute anyone operating under state law, the continuance of that policy is not assured under the Trump administration and could change at any time, which might render our marijuana operations illegal and adversely affecting KAYS’s business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

 

 

The marketing and market acceptance of marijuana may not be as rapid as KAYS expects.

 

The market for legal marijuana is quickly evolving, and activity in the sector is expanding rapidly. Demand and market acceptance for legal marijuana are subject to uncertainty and risk, as changes in the price and possible adverse political efforts could influence and denigrate demand. KAYS cannot predict whether, or how fast, this market will grow or how long it can be sustained. If the market for legal marijuana develops more slowly than expected or becomes saturated with competitors, KAYS’s operating results could be adversely impacted.

 

KAYS’s marijuana activities are part of an emerging industry.

 

The Company intends to implement an aggressive plan of growth to enter the legal recreational and medical marijuana industry. The legal marijuana industry is new and emerging, and has yet to fully define competitive, operational, financial and other parameters for successful operations. By pursuing a growth strategy to enter a new and emerging industry, the Company’s operations may be adversely impacted as the industry’s competitive, operational, financial and other parameters take shape. Given the fluidity of the industry, the Company may make errors in implementing its business plan, thereby limiting some or all of its ability to perform in accordance with its expectations.

 

Our business could be affected by changes in governmental regulation.

 

Federal, state and local laws and regulations governing legal recreational and medical marijuana use are broad in scope and are subject to evolving interpretations, which could require us to incur substantial costs associated with compliance. In addition, violations of these laws or allegations of such violations could disrupt KAYS’s planned business and adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations. In addition, it is possible that additional or revised federal, state and local laws and regulations may be enacted in the future governing the legal marijuana industry. There can be no assurance that KAYS will be able to comply with any such laws and regulations and its failure to do so could significantly harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Our business will be subject to other operating risks which may adversely affect the Company’s financial condition.

 

Our planned operations will be subject to risks normally incidental to manufacturing operations which may result in work stoppages and/or damage to property. This may be caused by:

 

breakdown of the equipment;

 

labor disputes;

 

imposition of new government regulations;

sabotage by operational personnel;

 

cost overruns; and

 

fire, flood, or other acts of God.

 

 

 

We will likely face significant competition.

 

The legal marijuana industry is in its early stages and is attracting significant attention from both small and large entrants into the industry. KAYS expects to encounter significant competition as it implements its business strategy. The ability of KAYS to effectively compete could be hindered by a lack of funds, poor positioning, management error, and other factors. The inability to effectively compete could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Our internal controls may be inadequate, which could cause our financial reporting to be unreliable and lead to misinformation being disseminated to the public.

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. As defined in Exchange Act `Rule 13a-15(f), internal control over financial reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the principal executive and principal financial office and effected by the board of directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company;

 

provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and/or directors of the Company; and

 

provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

We do not have a sufficient number of employees to segregate responsibilities and may be unable to afford increasing our staff or engaging outside consultants or professionals to overcome our lack of employees. During the course of our testing, we may identity other deficiencies that we may not be able to timely remediate. In addition, if we fail to achieve and maintain the adequacy of our internal controls, as such standards are modified, supplemented or amended from time to time, we may not be able to ensure that we can conclude on an ongoing basis that we have effective internal controls over financial reporting in accordance with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (“ Sarbanes Oxley ). Moreover, effective internal controls, particularly those related to revenue recognition, are necessary for us to produce reliable financial reports and are important to help prevent financial fraud. If we cannot provide reliable financial reports or prevent fraud, our business and operating results could be harmed, investors could lose confidence in our reported financial information, and the trading price of our common stock, if a market ever develops, could drop significantly

 

The Jumpstart our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “Jobs Act”) has reduced the information that the Company is required to disclose.

 

Under the Jobs Act, the information that the Company will be required to disclose has been reduced in a number of ways.

  

As a company that had gross revenues of less than $1 billion during the Company’s last fiscal year, the Company is an “ emerging growth company ,” as defined in the Jobs Act (an “ EGC ”). The Company will retain that status until the earliest of (a) the last day of the fiscal year which the Company has total annual gross revenues of $1,000,000,000 (as indexed for inflation in the manner set forth in the Jobs Act) or more; (b) the last day of the fiscal year of following the fifth anniversary of the date of the first sale of the common stock pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act; (c) the date on which the Company has, during the previous three year period, issued more than $1,000,000,000 in non-convertible debt; or (d) the date on which the Company is deemed to be a “ large accelerated filer ,” as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act or any successor thereto. As an EGC, the Company is relieved from the following:  

 

 

The Company is excluded from Section 404(b) of Sarbanes-Oxley, which otherwise would have required the Company’s auditors to attest to and report on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. The Jobs Act also amended Section 103(a)(3) of Sarbanes-Oxley to provide that (i) any new rules that may be adopted by the PCAOB requiring mandatory audit firm rotation or changes to the auditor’s report to include auditor discussion and analysis (each of which is currently under consideration by the PCAOB) shall not apply to an audit of an EGC; and (ii) any other future rules adopted by the PCAOB will not apply to the Company’s audits unless the SEC determines otherwise.
The Jobs Act amended Section 7(a) of the Securities Act to provide that the Company need not present more than two years of audited financial statements in an initial public offering registration statement and in any other registration statement, need not present selected financial data pursuant to Item 301 of Regulation S-K for any period prior to the earliest audited period presented in connection with such initial public offering. In addition, the Company is not required to comply with any new or revised financial accounting standard until such date as a private company (i.e., a company that is not an “ issuer ” as defined by Section 2(a) of Sarbanes-Oxley) is required to comply with such new or revised accounting standard. Corresponding changes have been made to the Exchange Act, which relates to periodic reporting requirements, which would be applicable if the Company were required to comply with them.
As long as the Company is an EGC, the Company may comply with Item 402 of Regulation S-K, which requires extensive quantitative and qualitative disclosure regarding executive compensation, by disclosing the more limited information required of a “ smaller reporting company .”
In the event that the Company registers the common stock under the Exchange Act as it intends to do, the Jobs Act will also exempt the Company from the following additional compensation-related disclosure provisions that were imposed on U.S. public companies pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act: (i) the advisory vote on executive compensation required by Section 14A(a) of the Exchange Act; (ii) the requirements of Section 14A(b) of the Exchange Act relating to shareholder advisory votes on “golden parachute” compensation; (iii) the requirements of Section 14(i) of the Exchange Act as to disclosure relating to the relationship between executive compensation and our financial performance; and (iv) the requirement of Section 953(b)(1)of the Dodd-Frank Act, which requires disclosure as to the relationship between the compensation of the Company’s chief executive officer and median employee pay.

 

The costs of being a public company could result in us being unable to continue as a going concern.

 

As a public company, we are required to comply with numerous financial reporting and legal requirements, including those pertaining to audits and internal control. The costs of this compliance could be significant. If our revenues do not increase and/or we cannot satisfy many of these costs through the issuance of our shares, we may be unable to satisfy these costs in the normal course of business that would result in our being unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Management and the Board of Directors may be Indemnified.

 

The Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws of KAYS provide for indemnification of directors and officers at the expense of the respective corporation and limit their liability. This may result in a major cost to the corporation and hurt the interests of stockholders because corporate resources may be expended for the benefit of directors and officers. The Company has been advised that, in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission, indemnification for liabilities arising under federal securities laws is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable.

 

 

 

The market for the KAYS Shares is extremely limited and sporadic

 

KAYS’s common stock is quoted on the OTCQB tier of the over-the-counter market operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc. The market KAYS’s for common stock is limited and sporadic. Trading in stock quoted on the OTCQB is often thin and characterized by wide fluctuations in trading prices, due to many factors that may have little to do with our operations or business prospects. This volatility could depress the market price of KAYS’s common stock for reasons unrelated to operating performance. Moreover, the trading of securities in the OTCQB is often more sporadic than the trading of securities listed on a quotation system like NASDAQ, or a stock exchange like the New York Stock Exchange.

 

KAYS’s common stock is a penny stock. Trading of KAYS’s common stock may be restricted by the penny stock regulations adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and FINRA’s sales practice requirements, which may limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our common stock.

 

KAYS’s common stock is a penny stock. The SEC has adopted Rule 15g-9 which generally defines “penny stock ” to be any equity security that has a market price (as defined) less than $5.00 per share or an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. KAYS’s common stock is covered by the penny stock rules, which impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and accredited investors. The term “ accredited investor ” refers generally to institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with a net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouse. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document in a form prepared by the SEC which provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. The bid and offer quotations, and the broker-dealer and salesperson compensation information must be given to the customer orally or in writing prior to effecting the transaction and must be given to the customer in writing before or with the customer’s confirmation. In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from these rules; the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for the stock that is subject to these penny stock rules. Consequently, these penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to trade our securities. We believe that the penny stock rules discourage investor interest in, and limit the marketability of, KAYS’s common stock.

 

In addition to the penny stock rules promulgated by the SEC, FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) has adopted rules that require when recommending an investment to a customer, a broker- dealer must have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer. Prior to recommending speculative low -priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer’s financial status, tax status, investment objectives and other information. Under interpretations of these rules, the FINRA believes that there is a high probability that speculative low-priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. FINRA’s requirements make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend that their customers buy KAYS’s common stock, which may limit investor ability to buy and sell KAYS’s common stock.

 

 

The market for penny stocks has experienced numerous frauds and abuses that could adversely impact KAYS’s common stock.  

 

Company management believes that the market for penny stocks has suffered from patterns of fraud and abuse. Such patterns include:

 

control of the market for the security by one or a few broker-dealers that are often related to a promoter or issuer;

 

manipulation of prices through prearranged matching of purchases and sales and false and misleading press releases;

 

boiler room practices involving high pressure sales tactics and unrealistic price projections by sales persons;

 

excessive and undisclosed bid-ask differentials and markups by selling broker-dealers; and

 

wholesale dumping of the same securities by promoters and broker-dealers after prices have been manipulated to a desired level, along with the inevitable collapse of those prices with consequent investor losses.

 

The board of directors of KAYS has the authority, without stockholder approval, to issue preferred stock with terms that may not be beneficial to common stockholders and with the ability to adversely affect common stockholder voting power and rights upon liquidation.

 

KAYS’s Certificate of Incorporation allows us to issue shares of preferred stock without any vote or further action by our stockholders. Our board of directors has the authority to fix and determine the relative rights and preferences of preferred stock. As a result, our board of directors could authorize the issuance of a series of preferred stock that would grant to holders of preferred stock the rights to our assets upon liquidation, the right to receive dividend payments before dividends are distributed to the holders of common stock and the right to the redemption of the shares, together with a premium, prior to the redemption of our common stock.

 

The ability of our principal stockholders, including our CEO, to control our business may limit or eliminate minority stockholders’ ability to influence corporate affairs.

 

The principal stockholder of KAYS holds 22,996,833 shares of common stock and $500K in principal amount of convertible promissory notes which are convertible into 50,000 shares of Series C Convertible Stock. Additionally, our CEO owns 5,280,144 shares of common stock and 50,000 shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock. These preferred shares notes can be converted into a total of 43,329,970 shares of KAYS common stock which, added to the common shares of KAYS held by both parties gives them approximately 41% of votes on matters presented to stockholders. Accordingly, they are in a position to significantly influence membership of our board of directors as well as all other matters requiring stockholder approval. The interests of our principal stockholders may differ from the interests of other stockholders with respect to the issuance of shares, business transactions with or sales to other companies, selection of other officers and directors and other business decisions. The minority stockholders have no way of overriding decisions made by our principal stockholders. This level of control may also have an adverse impact on the market value of our shares because our principal stockholders may institute or undertake transactions, policies or programs that result in losses and/or may not take any steps to increase our visibility in the financial community and/or may sell sufficient numbers of shares to significantly decrease our price per share.

 

 

We do not expect to pay cash dividends in the foreseeable future.

 

KAYS has not paid cash dividends on its shares of common stock and does not intend to do so at any time in the foreseeable future. The future payment of dividends depends upon future earnings, capital requirements, financial requirements and other factors that the companies’ boards of directors will consider. Since they do not anticipate paying cash dividends on the common stock, return on investment, if any, will depend solely on an increase, if any, in the market value of the common stock.

 

The conversion of KAYS’ outstanding preferred stock by the CEO and convertible debt held by our principal stockholder would result in the issuance of 43,329,970 shares of KAYS’ common stock. Additionally, conversion of other convertible debt described in this Annual Report would result in further dilution to KAYS’ stockholders. Accordingly, such market overhang could adversely impact the market price of the common stock.

 

KAYS has 50,000 shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock outstanding, all of which are held by our CEO. Additionally, KAYS has $500K in principal amount of convertible promissory notes outstanding held by our principal stockholder, which are convertible into 50,000 shares of Series C Convertible Stock. These preferred shares and convertible promissory notes can be converted into a total of 43,329,970 shares of KAYS common stock. Additionally, the company has other convertible debt described in this Annual Report, which would result in further dilution if converted Such market overhang could adversely impact the market price of KAYS’s common stock as a result of the dilution which would result if such securities were converted into shares of KAYS common stock.

 

Future sales of shares of KAYS common stock pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act could adversely affect the market price of KAYS’s common stock.

 

KAYS has a substantial number of shares of common stock which were issued in transactions exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and are now available for public sale pursuant to the Rule 144 under the Securities Act. Such sales could adversely affect the market price of KAYS’s common stock.

 

Because we are not subject to compliance with rules requiring the adoption of certain corporate governance measures, our stockholders have limited protection against interested-director transactions, conflicts of interest and similar matters.

 

Sarbanes-Oxley as well as rule changes proposed and enacted by the SEC, the NYSE/AMEX and the NASDAQ Stock Market as a result of Sarbanes-Oxley, require the implementation of various measures relating to corporate governance. These measures are designed to enhance the integrity of corporate management and the securities markets and apply to securities that are listed on those exchanges or the NASDAQ Stock Market. Because we are not currently required to comply with many of the corporate governance provisions and because we chose to avoid incurring the substantial additional costs associated with voluntary compliance, we have not yet adopted these measures.

 

We do not currently have independent audit or compensation committees. As a result, directors have the ability, among other things, to determine their own level of compensation. Until we comply with such corporate governance measures, regardless of whether such compliance is required, the absence of such standards of corporate governance may leave our stockholders without protections against interested- director transactions, conflicts of interest, if any, and similar matters and investors may be reluctant to provide us with funds necessary to expand our operations as a result thereof.

 

 

We intend to comply with all corporate governance measures relating to director independence as and when required. However, we may find it very difficult or be unable to attract and retain qualified officers, directors and members of board committees required to provide for our effective management as a result of Sarbanes-Oxley. The enactment of Sarbanes-Oxley has resulted in a series of rules and regulations by the SEC that increase responsibilities and liabilities of directors and executive officers. The perceived increased personal risk associated with these recent changes may make it more costly or deter qualified individuals from accepting these roles.

ITEM 3. Legal Proceedings.

 

Swartz Litigation

 

On August 22, 2014, a complaint was filed in the Circuit Court of the 17 th Judicial Circuit in and for Broward County, Florida (CACE 14-016324) entitled Neil Swartz vs. Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc.

 

The complaint by Mr. Swartz (a former executive officer and director of the Company) alleges that 44,880 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock (which our SEC filings reflect were contributed back to the Company for cancellation) were, in fact, not returned, and are still the property of Neil Swartz. Additionally, the complaint alleges that 5,120 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock held by us in book-entry form for Mr. Swartz should be released to Mr. Swartz.

 

On April 15, 2016, we entered into a Settlement Agreement with Mr. Swartz pursuant to which, among other matters, Mr. Swartz:

 

relinquished any and all rights to the 44,880 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock that had been returned to the Company for cancellation;

 

relinquished any and all rights to 2,354 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock that he had alleged were held in book-entry form for him;

 

retained the remaining 2,766 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock that he had alleged were held in book-entry form for him and exercised his right to convert those shares into 1,200,249 “ restricted ” shares of our common stock;

 

agreed to volume limitations on the public resale of the 1,200,249 “ restricted ” shares of our common stock issued to him upon conversion of the 2,766 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock; and

 

voluntarily dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice.

 

In addition to the foregoing, the parties also exchanged mutual releases.

 

Goldin Litigation

 

On June 22, 2016, Daniel A. Goldin and Wally Goldin commenced an action in Oregon Circuit Court, Multnomah County, against the Company, Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc., its direct majority-owned subsidiary, Craig Frank, the Company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, William David Jones, a consultant to the Company and BMN Capital Group, LLC, a limited liability company owned by Mr. Jones (the “ Action ”). The plaintiffs allege, in a complaint which has been amended three times, breach of contract, state securities fraud and state racketeering claims against the defendants arising from alleged misrepresentations made in subscription agreements with the Company entered into in October 2015 and January 2016 by Daniel A. Goldin and Wally Goldin, respectively, pursuant to which they each purchased 2,222,222 “ restricted ” shares of the Company’s our common stock for $100,000 in a private transaction. In addition, Daniel A. Goldin alleged that the Company breached a purported employment agreement with him pursuant to which he was purportedly to be compensated for working in our Oregon operations through a combination of cash and stock. The Plaintiffs are seeking monetary damages.

 

The Company believes that the claims and allegations set forth in the complaint filed in the Action are without merit and contain factual misstatements, and that the Company possesses documentation to establish that the plaintiffs’ investments were not solicited by the Company but that plaintiff Daniel A. Goldin unilaterally contacted the Company and represented himself as an “ accredited investor ” with expertise in the marijuana industry and proposed an investment in the Company. The Company is vigorously defending against the claims, has answered the complaint denying all of the plaintiff’s allegations and has brought various counterclaims against them arising from the plaintiffs’ misrepresentations. The action is currently in the discovery phase. Moreover, the Company believes that plaintiff Daniel Goldin has publicly sold the shares that he purchased from the Company for an amount significantly in excess of the purchase price, which adversely impacts his claim for damages.

The SEC has adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in penny stocks. Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a price of less than $5.00, other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or system. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC, that: (a) contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading; (b) contains a description of the broker’s or dealer’s duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to a violation to such duties or other requirements of securities laws; (c) contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and the significance of the spread between the bid and ask price; (d) contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions; (e) defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and (f) contains such other information and is in such form, including language, type, size and format, as the SEC shall require by rule or regulation.

 

The broker-dealer also must provide, prior to effecting any transaction in a penny stock, the customer with (a) bid and offer quotations for the penny stock; (b) the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction; (c) the number of shares to which such bid and ask prices apply, or other comparable information relating to the depth and liquidity of the market for such stock; and (d) monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. 

 

In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written acknowledgment of the receipt of a risk disclosure statement, a written agreement to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitability statement.

 

These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity in the secondary market for our stock if it becomes subject to these penny stock rules. Therefore, because our common stock is subject to the penny stock rules, stockholders may have difficulty selling those securities.

ITEM 6. Selected Financial Data.

 

Not applicable.

 

ITEM 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

Results of Operations

 

Year ended December 31, 2016 compared to year ended December 31, 2015

 

Revenues

 

We had revenues of $952,852 for the year ended December 31, 2016, as compared to $323,918 for the year ended December 31, 2015, an increase of approximately 200%. The increase in revenues from 2015 to 2016, reflects an entire year of legal recreational marijuana sales at our two Kaya Shack™ retail outlets in 2016, whereas legal recreational marijuana sales only commenced effective October 1 in 2015.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses were $504,617 for the year ended December 31, 2016, as compared to $1,553,654 for the year ended December 31, 2015.

 

Salaries and Wages

 

As a result of our increased retail operations, salaries and wages increased to $297,760 for the year ended December 31, 2016 from $135,786 for the year ended December 31, 2015.

 

 

Professional

 

Professional fees were $1,352,543 for the year ended December 31, 2016, as compared to $1,154,739 for the year ended December 31, 2015, reflecting additional licensing and regulatory compliance costs arising from our increased level of retail operations, as well as the need to apply for OLCC licenses for our existing retail outlets and those under development, as well as our grow and manufacturing operations. A portion of those fees were paid through the issuance of shares of our common stock.

 

 

Interest expense

 

Interest expense increased to $286,383 in 2016 from $163,919 in 2015, reflecting increased debt incurred to fund expansion of our operations.

 

Net Loss

 

We incurred a net loss of $19,849,262 for the year ended December 31, 2016, as compared to a net loss of $3,225,394 for the year ended December 31, 2015. The majority of our net loss during the year ended December 31, 2016 was a result of the derivative liabilities from the conversion of debt in the year ended December 31, 2016 and from the stabilization of our stock prices that reduces the volatility factors used in the derivative calculations. 

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

During 2016, the Company has raised a total of $1,185,000 in a series of private placements of debt and equity securities, including $250,000 in the $2.1 million financing described below.

 

In March 2017, the Company completed a $2.1 million financing with an institutional investor (the “ Investor ”) who had previously furnished KAYS with $1.2 million in financing, pursuant to a financing agreement (the “ Financing Agreement ”) entered into between the Company and the Investor in December 2016. Pursuant to the Financing Agreement, the Investor purchased $2.1 million in principal amount of convertible notes (the “ Notes ”), $250,000 of which were purchased prior to December 31, 2016, from the Company as follows:

 

$400,000 in principal amount of Notes which are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, at a conversion price of $0.04;

 

$700,000 in principal amount of Notes which are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.07; and

 

$1,000,000 in principal amount of Notes which are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.10.

 

The purchase price for the Notes is equal to the principal amount thereof. The Notes have a term of two years from issuance and bear interest at the rate of eight percent (8%) annum, which accrues and is payable to together with interest at maturity. The Investor may convert the principal amount of the Notes (as well as other notes it currently holds as referenced above), together with accrued but unpaid interest thereon, into shares at the applicable conversion price, at any time or from time to time prior to maturity. The conversion price is subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations and similar transactions. The Notes also provide that at no time may they be convertible if the number of shares being issued upon conversion to and then held by the Investor would result in the Investor beneficially owning in excess of 4.99% of the Company’s then outstanding shares of common stock, after giving effect to the proposed conversion. As of the date of this Annual Report, the Investor has not converted any of the Notes into shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

The proceeds from the offer and sale of Notes are and will be used to fund the Company’s 2017 growth plan, including expansion of our chain of Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstores in Oregon, expansion of our marijuana grow facility and manufacturing operations and introducing new Kaya Shack™ branded cannabis products.

 

Management believes that consummation of the $2.1 million financing, combined with existing and anticipated revenues from operations has alleviated the Company’s financial difficulties to a significant extent and will allow the Company to meet its anticipated working capital needs for a period of between three and nine months from the date of this Annual Report. However, there can be no assurance that management’s belief will be correct and that the Company will not sooner require additional financing to meet its working capital needs prior to achieving profitability or positive cash flow, subject to, among other factors, the amount of capital reserves the Company utilizes for the purchase of property and buildout for the relocation of the Kaya Farms Grow and Manufacturing Facility and also for vehicle and infrastructure purchases to launch Kaya Home Delivery. Moreover, we may not be successful in raising additional capital on commercially reasonable terms, if and when needed, in which case our business, financial condition, cash flows and results of operations may be materially and adversely affected.

 

 

Critical Accounting Estimates

 

The following are deemed to be the most significant accounting estimates affecting us and our results of operations:

 

Fair value of financial instruments

 

The Company follows the provisions of ASC 820. This Topic defines fair value, establishes a measurement framework and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. We apply these provisions to estimate the fair value of our financial instruments including cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses, and notes payable.

 

Income Taxes

 

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

 

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

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

There are no recent accounting pronouncements issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“ FASB ”), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (“ AICPA ”), and the SEC believed by management to have a material impact on the Company’s present or future financial statements.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

There are no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to investors.

Disclosure controls and procedures

 

Under the direction of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, we evaluated our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2016. Our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December 31, 2016.

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that the information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.  In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and in reaching a reasonable level of assurance, management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

 

As required by SEC Rule 13a-15(b), we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of our fourth fiscal quarter covered by this report. Based on the foregoing, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer President concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.  It should be noted that the design of any system of controls is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions, regardless of how remote.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

Our management of is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting.  Internal control over financial reporting is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) or 15d-15(f) promulgated under the Exchange Act as a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer and effected by the Company’s board of directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

 

Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company;

 

Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Company; and

 

Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. 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.

 

The Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2016.  In making this assessment, the Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“ COSO ”) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework.  The COSO framework is based upon five integrated components of control: control environment, risk assessment, control activities, information and communications and ongoing monitoring.

 

Based on the assessment performed, the company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer has concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, as of December 31, 2016, is not effective to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of its financial reporting and the preparation of its financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.  Further, the Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer has identified material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2016.

 

Based on an evaluation, the Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer has concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act were not effective as of December 31, 2016 (the “ Evaluation Date ”), to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to the Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.  Each of the following is deemed a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting:

 

 

We do not have an audit committee.  While we are not currently obligated to have an audit committee, including a member who is an “audit committee financial expert,” as defined in Item 407 of Regulation S-K, under applicable regulations or listing standards; however, it is management’s view that such a committee is an important internal control over financial reporting, the lack of which may result in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of internal controls and procedures.

 

We did not maintain proper segregation of duties for the preparation of our financial statements.  We currently have only one officer overseeing all transactions.  This has resulted in several deficiencies, including the lack of control over preparation of financial statements and proper application of accounting policies

 

The Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer believes that the material weaknesses set forth in the two items above did not have an effect on our financial results. However, the Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer believes that the lack of a functioning audit committee results in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and financial procedures, which could result in a material misstatement in our consolidated financial statements in future periods.

 

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There was no change in our internal controls or in other factors that could affect these controls during the fourth quarter of the year ended December 31, 2016 that have materially or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

Craig Frank   57   Chairman of the Board, President, Chief Executive Officer, Acting Chief Finance Officer, Director
Carrie Schwarz   57   Director
Jordi Arimany     40   Director

 

Set forth below is a brief description of the background and business experience of our directors and executive officers.

 

 

Craig Frank became Chairman of the Board, President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of the Company in January 2010. He assumed the appointed position of acting Chief Financial Officer in 2012. For the past 15 years, Mr. Frank has served as Chairman and CEO of Tudog International Consulting, a Florida-based company with business advisory, business development, market research, training, and merchant banking divisions. During his tenure at Tudog, Mr. Frank has worked with more than 200 companies from 19 countries. In addition, in such capacity, he developed the business plan for a biofuels company based in Central America, and is the co-founder of the Company’s predecessor, which we acquired in January 2010. He remains Tudog’s Chairman. Mr. Frank is a widely published author with articles on business matters featured in magazines and newsletters internationally, including publications of the Guatemala America Chamber of Commerce, the Israel Export Institute, the Romania Chamber of Commerce, and the World Association of Small and Medium Sized Enterprises. He is also an in-demand speaker at international conferences, including the Florida Sterling Council, the International Project Management Association, The Central American Center for Entrepreneurship, the Israel Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, and the Pino Center for Entrepreneurship at Florida International University. The Company believes that Mr. Frank’s consulting and entrepreneurial experience brings significant value to our management team.

 

Carrie Schwarz, who became a director in January 2010, has served as the Managing Partner of Athena Assets Management, a New York based hedge fund specializing in investments of special situation publicly traded securities since 2002. Ms. Schwarz has also been a Portfolio Manager at Metropolitan Capital, a New York based hedge fund. From 1999 to 2001 Ms. Schwarz was an executive at Bank of America Securities, where she built and managed a proprietary Risk Arbitrage Department. From 1991 to 1999 she founded and managed Athena Investment Partners, L.P., a hedge fund that focused on special situations. Prior thereto, she was with American Porters, L.P., a hedge fund that focused on risk arbitrage, which she joined as a junior analyst in 1995 and ultimately rose to become Head of Research and a partner. Ms. Schwarz serves on the board of directors of the American Friends of the Weizmann Institute of Science. We believe that her financial industry experience makes her a valuable member of the board of directors.

 

Jordi Arimany , who became a director in January 2010, has served as Vice President of Business Development of First Diversity Management Group, a Cleveland, Ohio-based human capital services company since 2008. From 2007 to 2008 he served as Associate to the Executive Vice President of Bunco Industrial, in Guatemala City, one of the largest private banks in Central America. From 2000 to 2007 he was National Business Development Manager to LAFISE (Latin American Financial Services), a Miami, Florida-based financial services firm operating throughout Latin America. Mr. Arimany has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from John Brown University and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Regent University. We believe that his Latin American financial and business experience makes him a valuable member of the board of directors.

 

 

Terms of Office

 

Our directors are appointed for a one-year term to hold office until the next annual meeting of our stockholders and until a successor is appointed and qualified, or until their removal, resignation, or death. Executive officers serve at the pleasure of the board of directors.

 

Board Committees

 

Two of our three directors are “ independent ” within the scope of the rules adopted by the NASDAQ Stock Market and the SEC: Ms. Schwarz and Mr. Arimany. However, our board of directors does not currently have an audit committee, a compensation committee, or a corporate governance committee. We plan to establish such committees in the near future.

 

Board of Directors Role in Risk Oversight

 

Members of the board of directors have periodic meetings with management and the Company’s independent auditors to perform risk oversight with respect to the Company’s internal control processes. Our board is currently comprised of a majority of independent directors. The Company believes that the board’s role in risk oversight does not materially affect the leadership structure of the Company.

 

Code of Ethics

 

We adopted a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (“ Ethics Code ”) on February 28, 2013 that includes provisions ranging from conflicts of interest to compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. All officers, directors and employees are bound by this Ethics Code, violations of which may be reported to any independent member of the board of directors.

Pre-approval is generally for up to one year, is detailed as to the particular service or category of services, and is generally subject to a specific budget.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

 

To the Board of Directors and

Kaya Holdings, Inc. and Subsidiaries

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Kaya Holdings, Inc. and Subsidiaries (“the Company”) as of December 31, 2016 and 2015 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit, and consolidated cash flows for the two years ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of their internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by the management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2016 and 2015, and the results of its operations, changes in stockholders’ deficit and cash flows for the two years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has suffered recurring operating losses, has an accumulated stockholders’ deficit, has negative working capital, has had minimal revenues from operations, and has yet to generate an internal cash flow that raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters are described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF THE BUSINESS

 

Organization

 

Kaya Holdings, Inc. FKA (Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc.) is a holding company. The Company was incorporated in 1993 and has engaged in a number of businesses. Its name was changed on May 11, 2007 to NetSpace International Holdings, Inc. (a Delaware corporation) (“NetSpace”). NetSpace acquired 100% of Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc. (a Florida corporation) in January 2010 in a stock-for-member interest transaction and issued 6,567,247 shares of common stock and 100,000 shares of Series C convertible preferred stock to existing shareholders. Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation was filed in October 2010 changing the Company’s name from NetSpace International Holdings, Inc. to Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc. (a Delaware corporation). Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation was filed in March 2015 changing the Company’s name from Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc. (a Delaware corporation) to Kaya Holdings, Inc.

 

The Company has two subsidiaries: Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc. (a Florida corporation) which is wholly owned and Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc. a Florida corporation (“MJAI”) which is majority owned. MJAI conducts operations in Oregon through controlling ownership interests in Oregon based entities MJAI Oregon 1 LLC, MJAI Oregon 2 LLC, MJAI Oregon 3 LLC and MJAI Oregon 4 LLC.

 

Nature of the Business  

 

The Company operates a subsidiary, Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc., a Florida corporation, that pursues medical and/or recreational licenses for the growing, processing and/or sale of marijuana in jurisdictions where it is legal and permissible under local laws. The subsidiary was formed in March 2014.

 

In March 2014 Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc. (through local Oregon subsidiaries) began the application process to obtain licenses to operate medical marijuana dispensaries in Oregon. On March 21, 2014 the Company received notice from the Oregon Health Authority that MJAI Oregon 1 LLC had been granted provisional licensing approval to operate their first Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Portland, Oregon and subsequently received full licensing approval for the first “Kaya ShackTM” retail medical marijuana dispensary, which we began operating July 3, 2014. As of December 31, 2016 the provisional Medical license that allowed the company to sell Medical and Recreational products has expired and the company has applied for a recreational license with the City of Portland Oregon. As of January 1, 2017, MJAI Oregon 1 LLC is currently operating as a Medical dispensary.

 

As of December 31, 2016 the company’s subsidiary MJAI Oregon 2 LLC was licensed for the sale of recreational Marijuana in the City of Salem Oregon.

  

NOTE 2 - LIQUIDITY AND GOING CONCERN

 

The Company’s consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2016 have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company incurred a net loss of $19,849,262 for the year ended December 31, 2016 and a net loss of $3,225,394 for the year ended December 31, 2015. At December 31, 2016 the Company has a working capital deficiency of $994,324, when not including non-cash derivative liabilities and is totally dependent on its ability to raise capital. The Company had a plan of operations and acknowledges that its plan of operations may not result in generating positive working capital in the near future. Even though management believes that it will be able to successfully execute its business plan, which includes third-party financing and capital issuance, and meet the Company’s future liquidity needs, there can be no assurances in that regard. These matters 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 material uncertainty. Management recognizes that the Company must generate additional funds to successfully develop its operations and activities. Management plans include:

 

 

  the sale of additional equity and debt securities,
  alliances and/or partnerships with entities interested in and having the resources to support the further development of the Company’s business plan,
  business transactions to assure continuation of the Company’s development and operations,
  development of a unified brand and the pursuit of licenses to operate recreational and medical marijuana facilities under the branded name.

  

NOTE 3 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) under the accrual basis of accounting.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes.

 

Such estimates and assumptions impact both assets and liabilities, including but not limited to: net realizable value of accounts receivable and inventory, estimated useful lives and potential impairment of property and equipment, the valuation of intangible assets, estimate of fair value of share based payments and derivative liabilities, estimates of fair value of warrants issued and recorded as debt discount, estimates of tax liabilities and estimates of the probability and potential magnitude of contingent liabilities.

 

Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate could change in the near term due to one or more future non-conforming events. Accordingly, actual results could differ significantly from estimates.

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Company’s operations are subject to risk and uncertainties including financial, operational, regulatory and other risks including the potential risk of business failure.  

 

The Company has experienced, and in the future expects to continue to experience, variability in its sales and earnings.  The factors expected to contribute to this variability include, among others, (i) the uncertainty associated with the commercialization and ultimate success of the product, (ii) competition inherent at other locations where product is expected to be sold (iii) general economic conditions and (iv) the related volatility of prices pertaining to the cost of sales. 

     

 

Fiscal Year

 

The Company’s fiscal year-end is December 31.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Kaya Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiary, Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc. (a Florida corporation) and Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc. (a Florida corporation) which is a majority owned subsidiary including all wholly owned LLC’s (MJAI Oregon 1 LLC, MJAI Oregon 2 LLC, MJAI Oregon 3 LLC, MJAI Oregon 4 LLC).  All inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Non-Controlling Interest

 

The company owns 55% of Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents are carried at cost and represent cash on hand, demand deposits placed with banks or other financial institutions and all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less. The Company had no cash equivalents

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consists of finished goods purchased, which are valued at the lower of cost or market value, with cost being determined on the first-in, first-out method.  The Company periodically reviews historical sales activity to determine potentially obsolete items and also evaluates the impact of any anticipated changes in future demand.  Total Value of Finished goods inventory as of December 31, 2016 is $83,997 and $80,657 as of December 31, 2015. No allowance was necessary as of December 31, 2016 and 2015.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment is stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation and is reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.  

 

Depreciation of property and equipment is provided utilizing the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives, ranging from 5-7 years of the respective assets. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.

 

Upon sale or retirement of property and equipment, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is reflected in the statements of operations.

 

Long-lived assets

 

The Company reviews long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles held and used for possible impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. In evaluating the fair value and future benefits of its intangible assets, management performs an analysis of the anticipated undiscounted future net cash flow of the individual assets over the remaining amortization period. The Company recognizes an impairment loss if the carrying value of the asset exceeds the expected future cash flows.

 

Operating Leases

 

We lease our retail stores under non-cancellable operating leases. Most store leases include tenant allowances from landlords, rent escalation clauses and/or contingent rent provisions. We recognize rent expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term, excluding contingent rent, and record the difference between the amount charged to expense and the rent paid as a deferred rent liability.

 

 

Deferred Rent and Tenant Allowances

 

Deferred rent is recognized when a lease contains fixed rent escalations. We recognize the related rent expense on a straight-line basis starting from the date of possession and record the difference between the recognized rental expense and cash rent payable as deferred rent. Deferred rent also includes tenant allowances received from landlords in accordance with negotiated lease terms. The tenant allowances are amortized as a reduction to rent expense on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease starting at the date of possession.

 

Earnings Per Share

 

In accordance with ASC 260, Earnings per Share, the Company calculates basic earnings per share by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share are computed if the Company has net income; otherwise it would be antidilutive, and would result from the conversion of a convertible note.

 

Income Taxes

 

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

 

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

 

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 & accrued expenses, certain notes payable and notes payable – related party, approximate their fair values because of the short maturity of these instruments.

 

The Company accounts for its derivative liabilities, at fair value, on a recurring basis under level 3. See Note 6.

 

Embedded Conversion Features

 

The Company evaluates embedded conversion features within convertible debt under ASC 815 “Derivatives and Hedging” to determine whether the embedded conversion feature(s) should be bifurcated from the host instrument and accounted for as a derivative at fair value with changes in fair value recorded in earnings. If the conversion feature does not require derivative treatment under ASC 815, the instrument is evaluated under ASC 470-20 “Debt with Conversion and Other Options” for consideration of any beneficial conversion feature.

 

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.

 

 

Beneficial Conversion Feature

 

For conventional convertible debt where the rate of conversion is below market value, the Company records a "beneficial conversion feature" ("BCF") and related debt discount.

 

When the Company records a BCF, the relative fair value of the BCF is recorded as a debt discount against the face amount of the respective debt instrument (offset to additional paid in capital) and amortized to interest expense over the life of the debt.

 

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, 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 face amount of the note and is amortized to interest expense over the life of the debt.

 

Extinguishments of Liabilities

 

The Company accounts for extinguishments of liabilities in accordance with ASC 860-10 (formerly SFAS 140) “Accounting for Transfers and Servicing of Financial Assets and Extinguishment of Liabilities”. When the conditions are met for extinguishment accounting, the liabilities are derecognized and the gain or loss on the sale is recognized.

 

Stock-Based Compensation - Employees

 

The Company accounts for its stock based compensation in which the Company obtains employee services in share-based payment transactions under the recognition and measurement principles of the fair value recognition provisions of section 718-10-30 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. Pursuant to paragraph 718-10-30-6 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification, all transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable.  

 

The measurement date used to determine the fair value of the equity instrument issued is the earlier of the date on which the performance is complete or the date on which it is probable that performance will occur.  

 

If the Company is a newly formed corporation or shares of the Company are thinly traded, the use of share prices established in the Company’s most recent private placement memorandum (based on sales to third parties) (“PPM”), or weekly or monthly price observations would generally be more appropriate than the use of daily price observations as such shares could be artificially inflated due to a larger spread between the bid and asked quotes and lack of consistent trading in the market.

 

The fair value of share options and similar instruments is estimated on the date of grant using a Black-Scholes option-pricing valuation model.  The ranges of assumptions for inputs are as follows:

 

 

  Expected term of share options and similar instruments: The expected life of options and similar instruments represents the period of time the option and/or warrant are expected to be outstanding. Pursuant to Paragraph 718-10-50-2(f)(2)(i) of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification the expected term of share options and similar instruments represents the period of time the options and similar instruments are expected to be outstanding taking into consideration of the contractual term of the instruments and employees’ expected exercise and post-vesting employment termination behavior into the fair value (or calculated value) of the instruments.  Pursuant to paragraph 718-10-S99-1, it may be appropriate to use the simplified method, i.e., expected term = ((vesting term + original contractual term) / 2), if (i) A company does not have sufficient historical exercise data to provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate expected term due to the limited period of time its equity shares have been publicly traded; (ii) A company significantly changes the terms of its share option grants or the types of employees that receive share option grants such that its historical exercise data may no longer provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate expected term; or (iii) A company has or expects to have significant structural changes in its business such that its historical exercise data may no longer provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate expected term. The Company uses the simplified method to calculate expected term of share options and similar instruments as the company does not have sufficient historical exercise data to provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate expected term.
     
  Expected volatility of the entity’s shares and the method used to estimate it.  Pursuant to ASC Paragraph 718-10-50-2(f)(2)(ii) a thinly-traded or nonpublic entity that uses the calculated value method shall disclose the reasons why it is not practicable for the Company to estimate the expected volatility of its share price, the appropriate industry sector index that it has selected, the reasons for selecting that particular index, and how it has calculated historical volatility using that index.  The Company uses the average historical volatility of the comparable companies over the expected contractual life of the share options or similar instruments as its expected volatility.  If shares of a company are thinly traded the use of weekly or monthly price observations would generally be more appropriate than the use of daily price observations as the volatility calculation using daily observations for such shares could be artificially inflated due to a larger spread between the bid and asked quotes and lack of consistent trading in the market.
     
  Expected annual rate of quarterly dividends.  An entity that uses a method that employs different dividend rates during the contractual term shall disclose the range of expected dividends used and the weighted-average expected dividends.  The expected dividend yield is based on the Company’s current dividend yield as the best estimate of projected dividend yield for periods within the expected term of the share options and similar instruments.
     
 

Risk-free rate(s). An entity that uses a method that employs different risk-free rates shall disclose the range of risk-free rates used.  The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant for periods within the expected term of the share options and similar instruments.

 

Generally, all forms of share-based payments, including stock option grants, warrants and restricted stock grants and stock appreciation rights are measured at their fair value on the awards’ grant date, based on estimated number of awards that are ultimately expected to vest.

 

The expense resulting from share-based payments is recorded in general and administrative expense in the statements of operations.

 

Stock-Based Compensation – Non Employees

 

Equity Instruments Issued to Parties Other Than Employees for Acquiring Goods or Services

 

The Company accounts for equity instruments issued to parties other than employees for acquiring goods or services under guidance of Sub-topic 505-50 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“Sub-topic 505-50”).

 

 

Pursuant to ASC Section 505-50-30, all transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable.  The measurement date used to determine the fair value of the equity instrument issued is the earlier of the date on which the performance is complete or the date on which it is probable that performance will occur.  If the Company is a newly formed corporation or shares of the Company are thinly traded the use of share prices established in the Company’s most recent private placement memorandum (“PPM”), or weekly or monthly price observations would generally be more appropriate than the use of daily price observations as such shares could be artificially inflated due to a larger spread between the bid and asked quotes and lack of consistent trading in the market.

 

The fair value of share options and similar instruments is estimated on the date of grant using a Black-Scholes option-pricing valuation model.  The ranges of assumptions for inputs are as follows:

 

  Expected term of share options and similar instruments: Pursuant to Paragraph 718-10-50-2(f)(2)(i) of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification the expected term of share options and similar instruments represents the period of time the options and similar instruments are expected to be outstanding taking into consideration of the contractual term of the instruments and holder’s expected exercise behavior into the fair value (or calculated value) of the instruments.  The Company uses historical data to estimate holder’s expected exercise behavior.  If the Company is a newly formed corporation or shares of the Company are thinly traded the contractual term of the share options and similar instruments is used as the expected term of share options and similar instruments as the Company does not have sufficient historical exercise data to provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate expected term.
     
  Expected volatility of the entity’s shares and the method used to estimate it.  Pursuant to ASC Paragraph 718-10-50-2(f)(2)(ii) a thinly-traded or nonpublic entity that uses the calculated value method shall disclose the reasons why it is not practicable for the Company to estimate the expected volatility of its share price, the appropriate industry sector index that it has selected, the reasons for selecting that particular index, and how it has calculated historical volatility using that index.  The Company uses the average historical volatility of the comparable companies over the expected contractual life of the share options or similar instruments as its expected volatility.  If shares of a company are thinly traded the use of weekly or monthly price observations would generally be more appropriate than the use of daily price observations as the volatility calculation using daily observations for such shares could be artificially inflated due to a larger spread between the bid and asked quotes and lack of consistent trading in the market.
     
  Expected annual rate of quarterly dividends.  An entity that uses a method that employs different dividend rates during the contractual term shall disclose the range of expected dividends used and the weighted-average expected dividends.  The expected dividend yield is based on the Company’s current dividend yield as the best estimate of projected dividend yield for periods within the expected term of the share options and similar instruments.
     
  Risk-free rate(s). An entity that uses a method that employs different risk-free rates shall disclose the range of risk-free rates used.  The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant for periods within the expected term of the share options and similar instruments.

 

Pursuant to ASC paragraph 505-50-25-7, if fully vested, non-forfeitable equity instruments are issued at the date the grantor and grantee enter into an agreement for goods or services (no specific performance is required by the grantee to retain those equity instruments), then, because of the elimination of any obligation on the part of the counterparty to earn the equity instruments, a measurement date has been reached. A grantor shall recognize the equity instruments when they are issued (in most cases, when the agreement is entered into). Whether the corresponding cost is an immediate expense or a prepaid asset (or whether the debit should be characterized as contra-equity under the requirements of paragraph 505-50-45-1) depends on the specific facts and circumstances.

 

 

Pursuant to ASC paragraph 505-50-45-1, a grantor may conclude that an asset (other than a note or a receivable) has been received in return for fully vested, non-forfeitable equity instruments that are issued at the date the grantor and grantee enter into an agreement for goods or services (and no specific performance is required by the grantee in order to retain those equity instruments). Such an asset shall not be displayed as contra-equity by the grantor of the equity instruments. The transferability (or lack thereof) of the equity instruments shall not affect the balance sheet display of the asset. This guidance is limited to transactions in which equity instruments are transferred to other than employees in exchange for goods or services. Section 505-50-30 provides guidance on the determination of the measurement date for transactions that are within the scope of this Subtopic.

 

Pursuant to Paragraphs 505-50-25-8 and 505-50-25-9, an entity may grant fully vested, non-forfeitable equity instruments that are exercisable by the grantee only after a specified period of time if the terms of the agreement provide for earlier exercisability if the grantee achieves specified performance conditions. Any measured cost of the transaction shall be recognized in the same period(s) and in the same manner as if the entity had paid cash for the goods or services or used cash rebates as a sales discount instead of paying with, or using, the equity instruments. A recognized asset, expense, or sales discount shall not be reversed if a share option and similar instrument that the counterparty has the right to exercise expires unexercised.

 

Pursuant to ASC paragraph 505-50-30-S99-1, if the Company receives a right to receive future services in exchange for unvested, forfeitable equity instruments, those equity instruments are treated as unissued for accounting purposes until the future services are received (that is, the instruments are not considered issued until they vest). Consequently, there would be no recognition at the measurement date and no entry should be recorded.

 

Revenue Recognition

  

Revenue is recorded when all of the following have occurred: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (2) asset is transferred to the customer without further obligation, (3) the sales price to the customer is fixed or determinable, and (4) collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales represents costs directly related to the purchase of goods and third party testing of the Company’s products.

 

Related Parties

 

The Company follows subtopic 850-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for the identification of related parties and disclosure of related party transactions.

 

Pursuant to Section 850-10-20 the related parties include a. affiliates of the Company; b. Entities for which investments in their equity securities would be required, absent the election of the fair value option under the Fair Value Option Subsection of Section 825–10–15, to be accounted for by the equity method by the investing entity; c. trusts for the benefit of employees, such as pension and profit-sharing trusts that are managed by or under the trusteeship of management; d. principal owners of the Company; e. management of the Company; f. other parties with which the Company may deal if one party controls or can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the other to an extent that one of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests; and g. Other parties that can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the transacting parties or that have an ownership interest in one of the transacting parties and can significantly influence the other to an extent that one or more of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests.

 

The consolidated financial statements shall include disclosures of material related party transactions, other than compensation arrangements, expense allowances, and other similar items in the ordinary course of business. However, disclosure of transactions that are eliminated in the preparation of consolidated or combined financial statements is not required in those statements.

 

 

The disclosures shall include: a. the nature of the relationship(s) involved; b. a description of the transactions, including transactions to which no amounts or nominal amounts were ascribed, for each of the periods for which income statements are presented, and such other information deemed necessary to an understanding of the effects of the transactions on the financial statements; c. the dollar amounts of transactions for each of the periods for which income statements are presented and the effects of any change in the method of establishing the terms from that used in the preceding period; and d. amounts due from or to related parties as of the date of each balance sheet presented and, if not otherwise apparent, the terms and manner of settlement.

 

Contingencies

 

The Company follows subtopic 450-20 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification to report accounting for contingencies. Certain conditions may exist as of the date the consolidated financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. The Company assesses such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or unasserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought therein.

 

If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, then the estimated liability would be accrued in the Company’s financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potentially material loss contingency is not probable but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability, and an estimate of the range of possible losses, if determinable and material, would be disclosed.

 

Loss contingencies considered remote are generally not disclosed unless they involve guarantees, in which case the guarantees would be disclosed. However, there is no assurance that such matters will not materially and adversely affect the Company’s business, consolidated financial position, and consolidated results of operations or consolidated cash flows.

 

Uncertain Tax Positions

 

The Company did not take any uncertain tax positions and had no adjustments to its income tax liabilities or benefits pursuant to the provisions of Section 740-10-25 for the reporting periods ended December 31, 2016, 2015 and 2014.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In November 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-17 “Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes” (“ASU 2015-17”) to simplify the presentation of deferred income taxes. Under this update, all deferred income tax assets and liabilities, along with any related valuation allowance, are required to be classified as noncurrent on the balance sheet. We do not believe the adoption of this update will have a material impact on our financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842).” The ASU will increase transparency and comparability among entities by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. The ASU will require lessees to recognize in the balance sheet a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. The ASU is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018 and interim periods within those annual periods. We do not believe the adoption of this update will have a material impact on our financial statements.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which simplifies the accounting and reporting for share-based compensation, including the accounting for income taxes, forfeitures, and statutory tax withholding requirements, as well as classification in the statement of cash flows. For public business entities, the amendments in this Update are effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those annual periods. We currently do not expect the adoption of this update to have a material effect on our consolidated results of operations and financial position.

 

In August 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (”ASU”) No. 2016-15, “Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments.” This ASU includes specific guidance to address diversity in how certain cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. The ASU is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017 and interim periods within those annual periods. The Company does not expect the adoption of this ASU to have a significant impact on the consolidated financial statements. 

 

In May 2014, the FASB has issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)”.  The guidance in this update supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in Topic 605, “Revenue Recognition.”  In addition, the existing requirements for the recognition of a gain or loss on the transfer of nonfinancial assets that are not in a contract with a customer (for example, assets within the scope of Topic 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment, and intangible assets within the scope of Topic 350, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other) are amended to be consistent with the guidance on recognition and measurement (including the constraint on revenue) in this Update.  Under the new guidance, an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services.  The amendments in ASU No, 2014-09 are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period. Early application is not permitted.  We do not believe the adoption of this update will have a material impact on our financial statements.

 

 

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying financial statements.

 

Re-Classifications

 

Certain amounts in 2015 were reclassified to conform to the 2016 presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on consolidated net loss for the periods presented.

 

The fair value of the warrants on the date of issuance and on each re-measurement date of those warrants classified as liabilities is estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model using the following assumptions: contractual life according to the remaining terms of the warrants, no dividend yield, weighted average risk-free interest rate of 1.93% at December 31, 2016 and weighted average volatility of 141.19%. For this liability, the Company developed its own assumptions that do not have observable inputs or available market data to support the fair value. This method of valuation involves using inputs such as the fair value of the Company's various classes of preferred stock, stock price volatility, the contractual term of the warrants, risk free interest rates and dividend yields. Due to the nature of these inputs, the valuation of the warrants is considered a Level 3 measurement. The warrant liability is recorded in other liabilities on the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets. The warrant liability is marked-to-market each reporting period with the change in fair value recorded on the Consolidated Statement of Operations and Comprehensive Loss until the warrants are exercised, expire or other facts and circumstances lead the warrant liability to be reclassified as an equity instrument.

NOTE 7 - DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

The Company identified conversion features embedded within convertible debt and issued in 2013 and subsequent periods. The Company has determined that the features associated with the embedded conversion option, in the form a ratchet provision, should be accounted for at fair value, as a derivative liability, as the Company cannot determine if a sufficient number of shares would be available to settle all potential future conversion transactions.

 

Additionally, due to a recognition of tainting, due to shares not being held in reserve in 2014 all convertible notes are considered to have a derivative liability, therefore the Company accounted for these Notes under ASC Topic 815-15 “Embedded Derivative.”  The derivative component of the obligation is initially valued and classified as a derivative liability with an offset to discounts on convertible debt. Discounts are amortized to interest expense over the respective term of the related note. In determining the indicated value of the convertible note issued, the Company used the Black Scholes Option Model with a risk-free interest rate of ranging from 0.05% to 1.06%, volatility ranging from 134% of 157%, trading prices ranging from $.05 per share to $0.49 per share and a conversion price ranging from $0.03 per share to $0.045 per share.

 

As a result of the application of ASC No. 815, the fair value of the ratchet feature related to convertible debt and warrants is summarized as follow: 

 

Balance as of December 31, 2015   $ 4,594,411  
         
Change in Derivative Values     14,889,353  
         
Balance as of December 31, 2016   $ 19,483,763  

 

The fair value at the commitment and re-measurement dates for the Company’s derivative liabilities were based upon the following management assumptions as December 31, 2016:

 

The Company recorded the debt discount to the extent of the gross proceeds raised, and expensed immediately the remaining fair value of the derivative liability, as it exceeded the gross proceeds of the note.  

 

The Company recorded a derivative expense of $(1,148,758) and $-0- for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively

  

The Company recorded a change in the value of embedded derivative liabilities income/(expense) of $ (14,302,811) and $(4,438,281) for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively
