D&C and Printing were formed under the laws of the State of California on January 29, 2013, and April 14, 2015, respectively.

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation and Principals of Consolidation

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial statements and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly, they do not contain all information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for annual financial statements. In the opinion of the Company’s management, the accompanying unaudited financial statements contain all the adjustments necessary (consisting only of normal recurring accruals) to present the financial position of the Company as of March 31, 2017, and the results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2017, are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full fiscal year or any future period. These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and related notes thereto included in the Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, filed with the SEC on April 14, 2017.

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Certain of the Company’s estimates could be affected by external conditions, including those unique to its industry, and general economic conditions. It is possible that these external factors could have an effect on the Company’s estimates that could cause actual results to differ from its estimates. The Company re-evaluates all of its accounting estimates at least quarterly based on these conditions and record adjustments when necessary.

Cash

The Company considers all short-term highly liquid investments with an original maturity at the date of purchase of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

Revenue Recognition

The Company follows the guidance of the Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 605, Revenue Recognition. We record revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, product delivery has occurred, the selling price to the customer is fixed or determinable and collectability of the revenue is reasonably assured. The Company has not experienced any significant returns from customers and accordingly, in management’s opinion, no reserve for returns has been provided.

Inventories

Inventories, which consist of the Company’s product held for resale, are stated at the lower of cost, determined using the first-in first-out, and net realizable value. Net realizable value is the estimated selling price, in the ordinary course of business, less estimated costs to complete and dispose of the product.

If the Company identifies excess, obsolete or unsalable items, its inventories are written down to their realizable value in the period in which the impairment is first identified. Shipping and handling costs incurred for inventory purchases and product shipments are recorded in cost of sales in the Company’s statements of operations.

Fair Value Measurements

The Company adopted the provisions of ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, which defines fair value as used in numerous accounting pronouncements, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure of fair value measurements.

The estimated fair value of certain financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses are carried at historical cost basis, which approximates their fair values because of the short-term nature of these instruments. The carrying amounts of our short and long term credit obligations approximate fair value because the effective yields on these obligations, which include contractual interest rates taken together with other features such as concurrent issuances of warrants and/or embedded conversion options, are comparable to rates of returns for instruments of similar credit risk.

ASC 820 defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy, which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 820 describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1 – quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities

Level 2 – quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable

Level 3 – inputs that are unobservable (for example cash flow modeling inputs based on assumptions)

The derivative liability in connection with the conversion feature of the convertible debt, classified as a Level 3 liability, is the only financial liability measure at fair value on a recurring basis.

 

The change in the Level 3 financial instrument is as follows:

Balance, January 1, 2017   $ 481,767  
·       Converted during the Period     —    
·       Change in fair value recognized in operations     (35,988 )
Balance, March 31, 2017   $ 445,779  

Property and Equipment

Property and equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is provided for on a straight-line basis over the useful lives of the assets. For furniture and fixtures the useful life is 5 years, Leasehold Improvements are depreciated over the 2 year lease term. Expenditures for additions and improvements are capitalized; repairs and maintenance are expensed as incurred.

Convertible Instruments

The Company evaluates and accounts for conversion options embedded in convertible instruments in accordance with ASC 815, “ Derivatives and Hedging Activities.

Applicable GAAP requires companies to bifurcate conversion options from their host instruments and account for them as free standing derivative financial instruments according to certain criteria. The criteria include circumstances in which (a) the economic characteristics and risks of the embedded derivative instrument are not clearly and closely related to the economic characteristics and risks of the host contract, (b) the hybrid instrument that embodies both the embedded derivative instrument and the host contract is not re-measured at fair value under other GAAP with changes in fair value reported in earnings as they occur and (c) a separate instrument with the same terms as the embedded derivative instrument would be considered a derivative instrument.

The Company accounts for convertible instruments (when it has been determined that the embedded conversion options should not be bifurcated from their host instruments) as follows: The Company records, when necessary, discounts to convertible notes for the intrinsic value of conversion options embedded in debt instruments based upon the differences between the fair value of the underlying common stock at the commitment date of the note transaction and the effective conversion price embedded in the note. Debt discounts under these arrangements are amortized over the term of the related debt to their stated date of redemption.

The Company accounts for the conversion of convertible debt when a conversion option has been bifurcated using the general extinguishment standards. The debt and equity linked derivatives are removed at their carrying amounts and the shares issued are measured at their then-current fair value, with any difference recorded as a gain or loss on extinguishment of the two separate accounting liabilities. During the three months ended March 31, 2017, there were no conversions of convertible debt.

Advertising

Advertising and marketing expenses are charged to operations as incurred.

Income Taxes

The Company use the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes. Under this method, income tax expense is recognized for the amount of: (i) taxes payable or refundable for the current year and (ii) deferred tax consequences of temporary differences resulting from matters that have been recognized in an entity’s financial statements or tax returns. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the results of operations in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided to reduce the deferred tax assets reported if based on the weight of the available positive and negative evidence, it is more likely than not some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

ASC Topic 740.10.30 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. ASC Topic 740.10.40 provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition. The Company has no material uncertain tax positions.

 

Recent accounting pronouncements

The Company does not believe there are any recently issued, but not yet effective; accounting standards that would have a significant impact on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

Note 3 – Going Concern

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. At March 31, 2017, the Company had a stockholders’ deficiency of $1,583,557 and a working capital deficit of $1,663,109. In addition, the Company has generated operating losses since inception and has notes payable that are currently in default. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the successful execution of its operating plan which includes increasing sales of existing products while introducing additional products and services, controlling operation expenses, negotiating extensions of existing loans and raising either debt or equity financing. There is no assurance that we will be able to increase sales or to obtain or extend financing on terms acceptable to us or at all or successfully execute any of the other measures set forth in the previous sentence .

Note 4 – Note Receivable

On August 11, 2015, the Company loaned $150,000 to an unrelated person who is one of the convertible noteholders referred to in Note 6. The note accrues interest at the highest lawful rate, but not more the 20% per annum, the Company is accruing interest at 10% per annum based on California usury rates. The principal amount was repaid on February 16, 2017, but accrued interest of $20,836 remains unpaid.

Note 5 – Convertible Notes Payable

The following is a description of convertible notes payable at March 31, 2017:

    On August 20, 2015, the Company made a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $400,000 to a then-related party, which was reduced to $360,000 as the result of a prepayment. The note bears interest at 0.28% per annum. It originally matured on March 4, 2015, but its maturity was extended to September 14, 2016, as described below. The note is subject to acceleration in the event of certain events of default, contains certain restrictive covenants, and is secured by a pledge of all the membership units in D&C. The note provided that if an event of default were to occur, the unpaid principal amount and interest accrued thereon would be convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price per share equal to 50% of the average daily closing price for 3 consecutive trading days ending on the trading day immediately prior to the conversion date. The note was in default when it was not paid on March 4, 2015. On August 20, 2015, the holder of the note assigned it to an unrelated third party and on September 14, 2015, the maturity of the note was extended to September 14, 2016, the holder waived all events of default and any right to receive interest at the default rate, and the Company agreed that the holder could convert the principal and interest of the note into common stock, notwithstanding the cure of defaults. On September 14, 2016, the maturity of this note was extended to September 14, 2017. On August 28, 2015, the holder converted $50,000 of principal of the note into 428,571,429 shares of common stock and on March 10, 2016, the holder converted $60,000 of principal of the note into 189,513,580 shares of common stock. During the three months ended March 31, 2017, there were no conversions of this note. The principal balance of the note at December 31, 2016, was $250,000.

  · The Company made a convertible promissory note, dated December 15, 2015, in favor of the unrelated party referred to above in the principal amount of $8,000. This note is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price equal to the average of the daily closing price for a share of Common Stock for the 3 consecutive trading days ending on the trading day immediately prior to the day on which a notice of conversion is delivered. The note matured on December 27, 2016, and bears interest at the highest lawful rate, but not more than 20% per annum. The Company is currently negotiating an extension of the maturity date.

 

  · The Company made two convertible promissory notes, one dated February 11, 2016, and the other dated April 25, 2016, in favor of the unrelated party referred to above, each in the principal amount of $7,500. Each note is due 1 year after the date on which it was made, bears simple interest at the rate of 20 percent per annum and is convertible into shares of Common Stock at a conversion price per share equal to 50% of the average daily closing price for 3 consecutive trading days ending on the trading day immediately prior to the conversion date. The Company is currently negotiating an extension of the maturity dates.

The Company has determined that the conversion feature embedded in the notes described above contain a potential variable conversion amount which constitutes a derivative which has been bifurcated from the note and recorded as a derivative liability at fair value, with a corresponding discount recorded to the associated debt. The excess of the derivative value over the face amount of the note is recorded immediately to interest expense at inception. The above notes are presented net of a discount of $493 at March 31, 2017, on the accompanying balance sheet. The Company used the Black-Scholes-Merton valuation model to value the conversion features using the expected life of each note, average volatility rate of approximately 396% and a discount rate of 0.52%

  · A series of promissory note conversion agreements that the Company entered into during 2014 with 10 unaffiliated persons in the aggregate amount of $224,500. These notes are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.05 per share. The loans are non-interest bearing and have no stated maturity date. During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company entered into agreements with four of the individuals in which the Company agreed to pay to them an additional amount equal to the current principal balance (which aggregated $32,000), which was recorded as interest expense. The notes were amended such that the Company agreed to repay the new balance over 10 monthly equal installments. The Company repaid $25,900 during the year ended December 31, 2016, and $10,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2017. There was a balance of $220,600 for all 10 of these notes at March 31, 2017.

  · A promissory note conversion agreement that the Company entered into with an unaffiliated persons in the amount of $10,000. This note is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.05 per share. The note bears interest at 15% per annum and matured April 3, 2015. The Company is currently negotiating an extension of the maturity date.

Note 6 – Notes Payable

During 2014, the Company entered made a series of promissory notes with four unaffiliated persons in the original aggregate amount of $457,000. During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company repaid one of these notes in the original principal amount of $7,000. These notes bear interest at rates ranging from 10% to 15% (with a weighted-average rate of 11.7%) and matured as follows:

  April 10, 2015     $ 300,000

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

THE FOLLOWING DISCUSSION SHOULD BE READ IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE COMPANY'S FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND THE NOTES TO THOSE STATEMENTS AND OTHER FINANCIAL INFORMATION APPEARING ELSEWHERE IN THIS REPORT. 

Introduction

Acology has no material assets other than all of the outstanding membership units of its two subsidiaries and has no plans to conduct any business activities other than obtaining or guaranteeing financing for the businesses conducted by its subsidiaries or assisting them in obtaining such financing.

Through D&C Distributors LLC and D&C Printing LLC, we are in the business of selling and distributing patented containers that can store, grind and shred pharmaceuticals, herbs, teas and other solids or liquids. We provide custom printing of labeling for our products and products manufactured by others. We have commenced sales of humidity control inserts, hydroponic grow towers, smell-proof bags and lighters and are actively developing markets for them. Our principal product is the Medtainer®.” Sales of our Medtainer® products accounted for 86% of our revenue in 2016, as compared with 92% in 2015, 74% of our sales in the quarter ended March 31, 2017, as compared with 89% of our sales in the quarter ended March 31, 2016. The most significant components of revenues from our other products and services were printing services, which comprised 6% of our revenue in 2016, as compared with 1% in 2015, and humidity control inserts, which we introduced in 2016, comprised approximately about 3% of our revenue for that year. In the quarter ended March 31, 2017, sales of printing services and humidity control inserts comprised 5% and 13% of our revenue; in the quarter ended March 31, 2016, sales of printing services and humidity control were each less than 5% of our revenue.

We market directly to businesses through our phone room to the retail public through internet sales and, and to wholesalers and other businesses who resell our products to other businesses and end users.

Some of our products can be utilized for marijuana-related purposes. In light of the facts that the possession and use of marijuana have been legalized, subject to varying restrictions, in many states and that several other states are considering such legalization, we believe that our products may be of interest to a large number of users of marijuana in and we advertise our products on our website and elsewhere as suitable for that purpose. However, since we do not seek information from our customers who are end users as to how they intend to utilize our products and have no similar knowledge respecting end users of products sold through our distributor, we are unable to determine the extent of its use in connection with the storage and grinding of marijuana or any other purpose.

Acology was incorporated on September 9, 1997, in the State of Florida. Acology has two operating subsidiaries, D&C Distributors LLC, which Acology acquired on March 28, 2014, and which commenced operations on January 29, 2013, and D&C Printing LLC, which was formed and commenced operations on April 14, 2015.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2017
COMPARED TO THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2016

Three Months Ended March 31, 2017, Compared with Three Months Ended March 31, 2016

Sales: Our sales for the three months ended March 31, 2017, were $544,830, from which we earned a gross profit of $390,930. Our sales for the three months ended March 31, 2016, were $535,302, from which we earned a gross profit of $448,732. The principal reason for the decrease in gross profit from the earlier to the later period was an increase in cost of sales increased from $86,570 in the earlier period to $153,900 in the later period because of the narrow gross margins on newly introduced products and an increase in the price that we pay for Medtainers® to their manufacturer.

 

Operating Expenses: For the three months ended March 31, 2017, total operating expenses of $400,625 were incurred, including $369,523 for general and administrative expenses, of which $33,901 and $33,901 were paid to Mr. Fairbrother and Mr. Heldoorn, respectively, as officers’ compensation, and $31,102 for advertising and marketing. For the three months ended March 31, 2016, total operating expenses of $471,372 were incurred, including $390,539 for general and administrative expenses, of which $35,582 and $30,000 were paid to Mr. Fairbrother and Mr. Heldoorn, respectively, as officers’ compensation, and $80,833 for advertising and marketing. The principal reasons for the decrease in general and administrative expense of $21,016 in the later period was due to a decrease in the use of independent contractors, utility expense and other insurance expense decrease. Advertising and marketing decreased by $49,731 in the later period because we have cut our advertising due to our increase in organic growth.

Loss from Operations. Loss from operations decreased from $22,640 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, to $9,695 for the three months ended March 31, 2017, because the decrease of $70,747 in total operating expenses in the later period exceeded the decrease in gross profit of $58,193 in the later period.

Oth er Expenses. During the three months ended March 31, 2017, and 2016, we incurred interest expense of $18,416 and $83,509, respectively. Interest expense was lower in the later period because the accounting treatment of the excess of the fair value of the embedded conversion feature of the note over its principal amount, which excess is charged as interest upon inception, was a higher amount in 2016 than for the amount of convertible debt issued in 2017, which contained an embedded conversion feature. We also incurred a gain on extinguishment of debt of $16,542 during the three months ended March 31, 2016, as the result of the conversion of convertible debt with a bifurcated conversion feature versus $16,542 during that quarter, but no such gain during the three months ended March 31, 2017. In addition, we incurred $35,988 of gain on change in fair value of derivative during the three months ended March 31, 2017, as the result of a change in the the fair value of the embedded conversion feature of a note over its principal amount, which excess is charged as interest upon inception, versus $60,978 during the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Net Income (Loss): For the reasons set forth above, we recorded net income of $7,877 for the three months ended March 31, 2017, as compared with a net loss of $28,629 for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of December 31, 2016, we had $24,452 in cash and accounts receivable of $67,034, and as of March 31, 2017, we had $113,724 in cash and accounts receivable of $96,132. We commenced business in January 2013. Our sales grew over the course of 2013, averaging 11,500 units per month for 2013. During the year ended December 31, 2014, we sold approximately 180,000 units. During the year ended December 31, 2015, we sold an approximately 314,000 units. During the year ended December 31, 2016, we sold approximately 419,000 units of our Medtainer® products and 160,000 units of our other products. We sold approximately 98,000 units of our Medtainer® products and approximately 142,000 units of our other products in the first quarter of 2017. Revenues from printing services have grown from $37,000 in the year ended December 31, 2015, to $112,208 in the year ended December 31, 2016; revenues were $25,302 in the first quarter of 2017. Sales of humidity control inserts were $67,999 in the first quarter of 2017, compared with $0 in the first quarter of 2016. During the three months ended March 31, 2017, we did not borrow and repaid $10,000.

We have a current inventory of approximately 156,000 containers, which we believe will be sold for approximately $702,000 and an inventory of 140,000 units of our other products, which we believe will be sold for approximately $315,000.

The Company believes that it will require approximately $1,000,000 in additional funding for the next 12 months, including $813,000 to repay loans that are past due, assuming that the Company’s operating loss remains at the same level. The Company plans to seek extensions of these loans, in which case the amount of such funding will be reduced, but cannot give assurances as to the extent that it will be successful. The Company plans to fund its activities, during the balance of 2017 and beyond through loans from banks and other financial institutions and the sale of debt or equity securities to private investors. The Company can give no assurance that it will be successful in so doing or that such funding, if available, can be obtained on acceptable terms.

 

The Company has devoted, and Management believes that the Company should continue to devote, manpower and capital to increasing its sales to the extent that it is available and prudent. For this reason, it has increased its sales staff from two 2 in 2013 to 18 today. Management further believes that increased sales will ultimately exceed operating expenses. However, as indicated in note 3 of the Notes to Financial Statements, there are substantial doubts as to the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern and Management recognizes that the Company can take measures to increase sales only within the parameters set forth therein. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on the successful execution of our operating plan, which includes increasing sales of existing products while introducing additional products and services, controlling operation expenses, negotiating extensions of existing loans and raising either debt or equity financing. During 2016, we increased sales of our Medtainer ® products increased sales of printing services and introduced new products, resulting in increased revenues.

The Company’s revenues have grown every year since in commenced business. In 2013, our sales were $254,992; in 2014, they were $460,756; in 2015, they were $1,441,441; and in 2016, they were $1,975,923. We reduced our net loss from $63,213 for the three months ended March 31, 2015, to $28,629 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, and most significantly, we believe, for the three months ended March 31, 2017, recorded net income, in the amount of $7,877. We hope that we can improve these results in the balance of 2017 and beyond, but cannot assure that we will be able to do so.

We can give no assurance that any of the funding described above will be available on acceptable terms, or available at all. If we are unable to raise funds in sufficient amount, when required or on acceptable terms, we may have to significantly reduce, or discontinue, our operations. To the extent that we raise additional funds by issuing equity securities or securities that are convertible into Acology’s equity securities, its shareholders may experience significant dilution.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements.

We currently do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements. 

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not required to provide information under this item.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES 

Evaluation of Internal Controls

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f). Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the criteria in Internal Control – Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer concluded that there was a material weakness in our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report because the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Exchange Act was not being (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure. We are a growing company and we currently lack documented procedures included documentation related to testing of processes, data validation procedures from the systems into the general ledger, testing of systems, validation of results, disclosure review, and other analytics. Furthermore, we lacked sufficient personnel to properly segregate duties. A controls system cannot provide absolute assurance, however, that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.

 

Remediation Plan

Management has been actively engaged in developing a remediation plan to address the above mentioned material weakness. Implementation of the remediation plan is in process and consists of establishing a formal review process As of March 31, 2017, management had not yet completed these remediation efforts. Management believes the foregoing efforts will effectively remediate the material weakness. As we continue to evaluate and work to improve our internal control over financial reporting, management may execute additional measures to address potential control deficiencies or modify the remediation plan described above. Management will continue to review and make necessary changes to the overall design of our internal control.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) during our last fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
