AMERICAN BATTERY METALS CORPORATION

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

For the period ended September 30, 2020

(unaudited)

 

1.Organization and Nature of Operations 

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of American Battery Metals Corporation have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including the instructions to Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted from these statements pursuant to such rules and regulations and, accordingly, they do not include all the information and notes necessary for comprehensive consolidated financial statements and should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements for the period ended June 30, 2020, included in our Annual Report on Form 10-KT for the period ended June 30, 2020.

 

The Company was incorporated under the laws of the state of Nevada on October 6, 2011 for the purpose of acquiring and developing mineral properties. The Company has a wholly-owned subsidiary called Oroplata Exploraciones E Ingenieria SRL, which was incorporated in the Dominican Republic on January 10, 2012.  On July 26, 2016, the Company incorporated Lithortech Resources Inc., a Nevada company, as a wholly-owned subsidiary. The Company currently holds mineral rights in the Western Nevada Basin of Nye County in the state of Nevada.

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. This contagious disease outbreak and any related adverse public health developments, has adversely affected workforces, economies, and financial markets globally, leading to an economic downturn. The impact on the Company is not currently determinable, but management continues to monitor the situation.

 

Going Concern

 

These condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies that the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. As at September 30, 2020, the Company has not earned any revenue, has a working capital deficit of $3,182,537, and an accumulated deficit of $66,360,155. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from its management, and its ability to identify future investment opportunities and obtain the necessary debt or equity financing, and generating profitable operations from the Company’s future operations. If the Company is able to obtain financing, there is no certainty that terms will be favorable to the Company. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

2.Summary of Significant Accounting Policies 

 

(a)Basis of Presentation 

 

The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“US GAAP”) and are expressed in U.S. dollars. The Company’s fiscal year end is June 30.  

 

(b)Principles of Consolidation 

 

These condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and are expressed in U.S. dollars. These condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Oroplata Exploraciones E Ingenieria SRL and LithiumOre Corporation (formerly Lithortech Resources Inc). All inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated on consolidation.

6.Investment in Joint Venture 

 

On October 8, 2018, the Company entered into a joint venture agreement with CINC Industries Inc. (“CINC”), a non-related Nevada company, for a period of five years whereby the joint venture will propagate the sale of a new process for extraction of lithium salt from salt brine solutions using CINC’s existing and future processing equipment.  As part of the joint venture, each of CINC and the Company holds a 50% interest in the joint venture.  

 

CINC is responsible for completing testing on the pilot project, providing training to the Company for use of its processing equipment, manufacturing up to 20 test units, and support and product development, as well as shared costs on other personnel utilized in the joint venture company.  The Company is responsible for the initial funding for all equipment and associated expenses, the cost of the lease space, and marketing and sales of the joint venture agreement.

 

As part of the joint venture agreement, the Company issued 250,000 common shares to CINC.  The joint venture is committed to acquiring a minimum amount of processing equipment, goods, accessories, and/or materials totaling: (i) $1,000,000 by October 8, 2020; (ii) $3,000,000 by October 8, 2021; (iii) $6,000,000 by October 8, 2022; and (v) $10,000,000 by October 8, 2023.  In the event that the joint venture fails to meet the minimum amounts above, the Company will lose the exclusive right to market, promote and sell the processing equipment provided by CINC.

 

While technically still in place, the October 8, 2020 milestone was not met, and the Company does not believe this joint venture agreement will go forward.

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

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

You should read the following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in the Form 10-Q. The following discussion contains forward-looking statements that reflect our plans, estimates and beliefs. Our actual results could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to these differences include those discussed below and elsewhere in this Form 10-Q.

 

Background

 

The lithium-ion battery manufacturing supply chain is organized into four industries that operate in series: battery feedstock providers, material refiners, cell manufacturers, and end-use product (electric vehicle, stationary storage, consumer electronics, etc.) manufacturers. While the scale of manufacturing of lithium-ion battery cells and of electric vehicles and other end-use products have grown substantially within the US in recent years, there has been little domestic growth in the battery feedstock and material refining portions of the manufacturing supply chain. This has led to an imbalance within the domestic US supply chain and has caused the majority of cell manufacturing and end-use product manufacturers to rely on foreign supplies of their raw and refined feedstock materials. The situation is so dire that in its “Mineral Commodity Summaries 2020” report, the US Geological Survey calculated that less than 1% of each of the critical and strategic battery metals (lithium, nickel, cobalt, and manganese) produced globally in 2019 were produced within the US.

 

American Battery Metals Corporation (“ABMC” or the “Company”) is a startup company in the lithium-ion battery industry that is working to increase the domestic US production of these four battery metals through its engagement in the exploration of new primary resources of battery metals, in the development and commercialization of new technologies for the extraction of these battery metals from primary resources, and in the commercialization of an internally developed integrated process for the recycling of lithium-ion batteries for the recovery of battery metals. Through this three-pronged approach ABMC is working to both increase the domestic production of these battery metals, and also to ensure that as these materials reach their end of lives that the constituent elemental battery metals are returned to the manufacturing supply chain in a closed-loop fashion.

 

The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on October 6, 2011 for the purpose of acquiring rights to mineral properties with the eventual objective of being a producing mineral company, if and when it ever occurs. We have limited operating history and have not yet generated or realized any revenues from our activities. Our principal executive offices are located at 930 Tahoe Blvd., Suite 802-16, Incline Village, NV 89451.

 

On August 8, 2016, the Company formed Lithortech Resources Inc. as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company to serve as its operating subsidiary for lithium resource exploration and development. On June 29, 2018, the Company changed the name of Lithortech Resources to LithiumOre Corp. (“LithiumOre”). On May 3, 2019, the Company changed its name to American Battery Metals Corporation.

 

The growth in demand for lithium-ion batteries is predicted by industry researchers to grow by over ten-fold over the next ten years, while over the same period there are limited announcements for new production sources of domestic US based lithium, nickel, cobalt, or manganese. As a result, there will be increased pressure on the prices of domestically sourced battery metals, and increased reliance on foreign sourced battery metals. These industry trends support and validate the Company’s multifaceted three-pronged business model to increase the production of domestic US sourced battery metals. The Company is currently a pre-revenue organization and we do not anticipate earning revenues until such time as we have initial operations of our lithium-ion battery recycling facility underway, or until we have undertaken sufficient exploration work to identify lithium and or other battery metals reserves and have validated and commercialized a cost-effective extraction system.

 

Employees

 

The company has fourteen employees: (a) two officers, Mr. Cole, our chief executive officer, Ryan Melsert, our Chief Technical Officer, and (b) twelve other employees which include Head of Resources, Principal Chemical Engineer, Lead Onsite Project Manager, Senior Chemist, Head of Business Development, Controller, Human Resources head, and Corporate Communications head.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

American Battery Metals Corp. (“ABMC”) has not realized any revenue from its exploration activities on the Nye County property and it is extremely doubtful that the mineral property will be able to produce any revenue for many years. Without an ore reserve ABMC cannot seek substantial investors to further fund the Company so that production can be achieved. Not until commercial production is realized will ABMC have any chance of recognizing any form of revenue.

 

Results of Operations

 

Revenues

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company has not realized any revenues.

 

Expenses

 

Three Months Ended September 30, 2020 and 2019

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company incurred $2,413,093 of operating expenses compared to $1,394,637 of operating expenses during the three months ended September 30, 2019. Overall, the increase in operating expense was due to the fact that the Company issued 13,240,000 common shares for services with a fair value of $1,582,270 in fiscal 2020 compared to 3,650,000 common shares for fair value of $690,500 during fiscal 2019.  The Company also had an increase in payroll expense from $151,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2019 to $447,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2020 as the Company had more employees and operations compared to the prior year.

 

In addition to operating expenses, the Company incurred interest and accretion expense of $1,362,547 during the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $1,100,494 during the three months ended September 30, 2019.  The increase in interest and accretion expense was due to the fact that the Company had more conversions of outstanding convertible notes in the current year compared to prior year which resulted in the acceleration of accretion on the debt discount that was originally derived due to the fair value of the convertibility features on the convertible notes.  The Company also had an increase in the loss due to the change in the fair value of the derivative liability from $62,554 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 to $773,886 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 due to the fact that the Company had a more volatile share price during the current year which resulted in a wider spread between the fair value of the common stock and the discounted conversion rates for the convertible debentures.  Finally, the Company recorded a gain on the settlement of debt of $1,612,433 compared a gain of $86,187 during the three months ended September 30, 2019 due to the fact that the Company entered into more settlement agreements for the conversion of notes payable as well as cash settlements of outstanding notes payable during the current fiscal period that resulted in an elimination of a larger amount of the outstanding derivative liability which resulted in a higher gain on settlement of debt.  As part of the cash settlement of outstanding notes payable, the Company incurred financing costs of $214,116 during the current period compared to $nil in the prior year.

 

Net Loss

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company incurred a net loss of $3,151,209 or $0.01 loss per share compared to a net loss of $2,475,244 or $0.02 loss per share during the three months ended September 30, 2019.  The increase in the net loss is due to the fact that the Company had more general and administrative costs due to increases in payroll expense and share-based compensation, but was offset by the fact that the Company recorded a larger gain on settlement of debt in the current year due to an increase in the number of debt settlements which included the elimination of the derivative liability.  

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At September 30, 2020, the Company had cash of $1,292,358 and total assets of $1,627,240 compared to cash of $829,924 and total assets of $1,161,314 as at June 30, 2020.  The increase in cash is due to the fact that the Company received $1,343,750 of financing from private placements and $1,075,000 of proceeds from convertible debentures during the period ended September 30, 2020 less repayments of convertible debentures of $882,571.  The increase in total assets is due to the increase in cash of $462,434 and increase in prepaid expense of $6,093.

 

The Company had total current liabilities of $4,718,322 at September 30, 2020 compared to $5,795,170 at June 30, 2020.  The decrease is due to a decline in the derivative liability from $4,519,654 at June 30, 2020 to $2,777,634 at September 30, 2020 based on the settlement of convertible notes payable from the conversion of debt and the repayment of notes payable with cash during the period.  As at September 30, 2020, the Company had total face value of convertible debt outstanding of $2,116,000 compared to total face value of convertible debt of $2,211,200 as at June 30, 2020.


18



 

As at September 30, 2020, the Company had a working capital deficit of $3,182,537 compared to a working capital deficit of $4,727,912 at June 30, 2020. The decrease in the working capital deficit was due to the settlement of outstanding convertible notes payable, and the corresponding derivative liabilities associated with those convertible notes, with the issuance of common shares and payment of cash during the period.  

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company issued 13,240,000 common shares for services with a fair value of $1,582,270, issued 15,153,315 common shares to convert outstanding notes payable and accrued interest totaling $1,770,232, issued 60,625,000 common shares in a private placement for $2,450,000 (which was received during the year ended June 30, 2020), and issued 5,055,132 common shares for the exercise of cashless share purchase warrants that were previously issued to note holders as an inducement for the convertible note proceeds.  

 

As at September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020, the Company does not have any issued or outstanding stock options.

 

Cash Flows

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company used $1,071,651 of cash for operating activities as compared to $838,772 during the three months ended September 30, 2019.  The increase in the use of cash for operating activities was due to the fact that the Company raised more funding from financing activities, including $1,343,750 from share subscriptions, which allowed them to incur more operating costs to further the Company’s development and operations.  

 

Cash from Investing Activities

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company incurred $2,094 for the acquisition of equipment.  The Company did not have any investing activities during the three months ended September 30, 2019.

None.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

In presenting the Company's financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepting accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, costs and expenses and related disclosures.

 

Some of the estimates and assumptions the Company is required to make relate to matters that are inherently uncertain as they pertain to future events. The Company bases these estimates and assumptions on historical experience or on various other factors that it believes to be reasonable and appropriate under the circumstances. On an ongoing basis, the Company reconsiders and evaluates its estimates and assumptions. Actual results may differ significantly from these estimates.

 

The Company believes that the critical accounting policies listed below involve its more significant judgments, assumptions and estimates and, therefore, could have the greatest potential impact on its financial statements. In addition, the Company believes that a discussion of these policies is necessary to understand and evaluate the financial statements contained in this filing.


19



Estimates and Assumptions

 

Management uses estimates and assumptions in preparing financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Those estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of the assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported revenues and expenses. Actual results could vary from the estimates that were assumed in preparing these financial statements.

 

Mineral claim acquisition and exploration costs

 

The cost of acquiring mineral properties or claims is initially capitalized and then tested for recoverability whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that its carrying amount may not be recoverable. Mineral exploration costs are expensed as incurred.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company utilizes the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under the liability method deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting and the tax bases of the assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect, when the differences are expected to be reversed. An allowance against deferred tax assets is recorded, when it is more likely than not, that such tax benefits will not be realized.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company does not expect the adoption of any recent accounting pronouncements to have a material impact on its financial statements.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

Not Applicable.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

The Company maintains disclosure controls and procedures designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in reports filed pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 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 management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In addition, The Company contracts with an independent firm to review and test its internal controls. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met.

 

As of September 30, 2020, the Company’s management carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934. Based on that evaluation, it was concluded the disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of September 30, 2020.

 

Changes in Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended September 30, 2020 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

In January 2018, the Company filed a complaint in Nevada seeking the return or cancellation of 16 million common shares which the Company believes were fraudulently issued as well as claims against the former CEO of the Company, Craig Alford. As a result, the Company entered into agreements to cancel eleven million shares (of which ten million shares have already been cancelled). The remaining five million shares were cancelled and reissued after the Company determined that the recipients provided proper consideration for such shares. Alford has filed a counterclaim against the Company for amounts allegedly owed to him that the Company believes is entirely without merit. The litigation continues against Alford and certain other relief defendants but has been delayed due to Covid -19 restrictions.

 

Other than the preceding, to the best of our knowledge, we are not currently a party to any legal proceedings that, individually or in the aggregate, are deemed to be material to our financial condition or results of operations.
