Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Barfresh Food Group Inc., (“we,” “us,” “our,” and the “Company”) was incorporated on February 25, 2010 in the State of Delaware. We are engaged in the manufacturing and distribution of ready to blend beverages, particularly, smoothies, shakes and frappes.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

 

Basis of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of the Company and our wholly owned subsidiaries, Barfresh Inc. and Barfresh Corporation Inc. (formerly known as Smoothie, Inc.). All inter-company balances and transactions among the companies have been eliminated upon consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities in the balance sheets and revenues and expenses during the years reported. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

The amount of cash on deposit with financial institutions exceeds the $250,000 federally insured limit at June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018. However, we believe that cash on deposit that exceeds $250,000 in the financial institutions is financially sound and the risk of loss is minimal.

 

Fair Value Measurement

 

Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820”), provides a comprehensive framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures which are required about fair value measurements. Specifically, ASC 820 sets forth a definition of fair value and establishes a hierarchy prioritizing the inputs to valuation techniques, giving the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable value inputs. ASC 820 defines the hierarchy as follows:

 

Level 1 - Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reported date. The types of assets and liabilities included in Level 1 are highly liquid and actively traded instruments with quoted prices, such as equities listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

 

Level 2 - Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets but are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reported date. The types of assets and liabilities in Level 2 are typically either comparable to actively traded securities or contracts or priced with models using highly observable inputs.

 

Level 3 - Significant inputs to pricing that are unobservable as of the reporting date. The types of assets and liabilities included in Level 3 are those with inputs requiring significant management judgment or estimation, such as complex and subjective models and forecasts used to determine the fair value.

 

Our financial instruments consist of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, derivative liabilities, and convertible notes. The carrying value of our financial instruments approximates their fair value, except for the derivative liability in which carrying value is fair value.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are typically unsecured. Our credit policy calls for payment generally within 30 days. The credit worthiness of a customer is evaluated prior to a sale. As of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the company’s allowance for doubtful accounts was $61,788 and $61,788, respectively. The allowance was estimated based on evaluation of collectability of outstanding accounts receivable.

Inventory

 

Inventory consists of finished goods and is carried at the lower of cost or realizable value on a first in first out basis. The company monitors the remaining useful life of its inventory and establishes a reserve of obsolescence where appropriate. As of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company’s inventory reserve was $31,237 and $31,237, respectively.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets are comprised of patents, net of amortization and trademarks. The patent costs are being amortized over the life of the patent, which is twenty years from the date of filing the patent application. In accordance with ASC Topic 350 Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (“ASC 350”), the costs of internally developing other intangible assets, such as patents, are expensed as incurred. However, as allowed by ASC 350, costs associated with the acquisition of patents from third parties, legal fees and similar costs relating to patents have been capitalized.

 

In accordance with ASC 350 legal costs related to trademarks have been capitalized. We have determined that trademarks have an indeterminable life and therefore are not being amortized.

 

Long-Lived Assets and Other Acquired Intangible Assets

 

We evaluate the recoverability of property and equipment and finite-lived intangible assets for possible impairment whenever events or circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable. The evaluation is performed at the lowest level for which identifiable cash flows are largely independent of the cash flows of other assets and liabilities. Recoverability of these assets is measured by a comparison of the carrying amounts to the future undiscounted cash flows the assets are expected to generate. If such review indicates that the carrying amount of property and equipment and intangible assets is not recoverable, the carrying amount of such assets is reduced to fair value. We have not recorded any significant impairment charges during the years presented.

 

Property, Plant, and Equipment

 

Property, plant, and equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment loss, if any. Depreciation is calculated on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Leasehold improvements are being amortized over the shorter of the useful life of the asset or the lease term that includes any expected renewal periods that are deemed to be reasonably assured. The estimated useful lives used for financial statement purposes are:

 

Furniture and fixtures: 5 years

Manufacturing equipment and customer equipment: 3 years to 7 years

Vehicles: 5 years

 

Revenue Recognition

 

In accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, revenue is recognized when a customer obtains ownership of promised goods. The Company adopted this standard at the beginning of fiscal year 2018, with no significant impact to its financial position or results of operations, using the modified retrospective method. The amount of revenue recognized reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for these goods. The Company applies the following five steps:

 

  1) Identify the contract with a customer
     
    A contract with a customer exists when (i) the Company enters into an enforceable contract with a customer that defines each party’s rights, (ii) the contract has commercial substance and, (iii) the Company determines that collection of substantially all consideration for goods or services that are transferred is probable. For the Company, the contract is the approved sales order, which may also be supplemented by other agreements that formalize various terms and conditions with customers.

  2) Identify the performance obligation in the contract
     
    Performance obligations promised in a contract are identified based on the goods or that will be transferred to the customer. For the Company, this consists of the delivery of frozen beverages, which provide immediate benefit to the customer.
     
  3) Determine the transaction price
     
    The transaction price is determined based on the consideration to which the Company will be entitled in exchange for transferring goods, and is generally stated on the approved sales order. Variable consideration, which typically includes volume-based rebates or discounts, are estimated utilizing the most likely amount method.
     
  4) Allocate the transaction price to performance obligations in the contract Since our contracts contain a single performance obligation, delivery of frozen beverages, the transaction price is allocated to that single performance obligation.
     
  5) Recognize Revenue when or as the Company satisfies a performance obligation
     
    The Company recognizes revenue from the sale of frozen beverages when title and risk of loss passes and the customer accepts the goods, which generally occurs at delivery. Customer sales incentives such as volume-based rebates or discounts are treated as a reduction of sales at the time the sale is recognized. Shipping and handling costs are treated as fulfillment costs and presented in distribution, selling and administrative costs.
     
    The company evaluated the requirement to disaggregate revenue, and concluded that substantially all of its revenue comes from a single product, frozen beverages.

 

Research and Development

 

Expenditures for research activities relating to product development and improvement are charged to expense as incurred. We incurred $116,786 and $153,329, in research and development expenses for the three-months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. For the six-month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, research and development costs totaled $272,985 and $343,670, respectively.

 

Shipping and Handling Costs

 

Shipping and handling costs are included in general and administrative expenses. For the three-month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, shipping and handling costs totaled $155,055 and $278,787, respectively. For the six-month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, shipping and handling costs totaled $253,394 and $434,422, respectively.

 

Income Taxes

 

The provision for income taxes is determined in accordance with the provisions of ASC Topic 740, Accounting for Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax basis. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted income tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Any effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

ASC 740 prescribes a comprehensive model for how companies should recognize, measure, present, and disclose in their financial statements, uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken on a tax return. Under ASC 740, tax positions must initially be recognized in the financial statements when it is more likely than not the position will be sustained upon examination by the tax authorities. Such tax positions must initially and subsequently be measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the tax authority assuming full knowledge of the position and relevant facts.

 

ASC 740 requires a valuation allowance to reduce the deferred tax assets reported if, based on the weight of evidence, it is more than likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be recognized.

For the three-months and six-months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 we did not have any interest and penalties or any significant unrecognized uncertain tax positions.

 

Derivative Liability

 

The Company evaluates its convertible instruments, options, warrants or other contracts to determine if those contracts or embedded components of those contracts qualify as derivatives to be separately accounted for under ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives and Hedging.” The result of this accounting treatment is that the fair value of any derivative is marked-to-market each balance sheet date and recorded as a liability. In the event that the fair value is recorded as a liability, the change in fair value is recorded in the statement of operations as gain/loss from derivative liability. Upon conversion or exercise of a derivative instrument, the instrument is marked to fair value at the conversion date and then that fair value is reclassified to equity. We analyzed the derivative financial instruments in accordance with ASC 815. The objective is to provide guidance for determining whether an equity-linked financial instrument is indexed to an entity’s own stock. This determination is needed for a scope exception which would enable a derivative instrument to be accounted for under the accrual method. The classification of a non-derivative instrument that falls within the scope of ASC 815-40-05 “Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in, a Company’s Own Stock” also hinges on whether the instrument is indexed to an entity’s own stock. A non-derivative instrument that is not indexed to an entity’s own stock cannot be classified as equity and must be accounted for as a liability. There is a two-step approach in determining whether an instrument or embedded feature is indexed to an entity’s own stock. First, the instrument’s contingent exercise provisions, if any, must be evaluated, followed by an evaluation of the instrument’s settlement provisions. The Company utilized the fair value standard set forth by the Financial Accounting Standards Board, defined as the amount at which the assets (or liability) could be bought (or incurred) or sold (or settled) in a current transaction between willing parties, that is, other than in a forced or liquidation sale.

 

Earnings per Share

 

We calculate net loss per share in accordance with ASC Topic 260, Earnings per Share . Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period, and diluted earnings per share is computed by including common stock equivalents outstanding for the period in the denominator. At June 30, 2019 and 2018 any equivalents would have been anti-dilutive as we had losses for the periods then ended.

 

Stock Based Compensation

 

We calculate stock compensation in accordance with ASC Topic 718, Compensation-Stock Based Compensation (“ASC 718”). ASC 718 requires that the cost resulting from all share-based payment transactions be recognized in the financial statements and establishes fair value as the measurement objective in accounting for share-based payment arrangements and requires all entities to apply a fair-value-based measurement method in accounting for share-based payment transactions with employees except for equity instruments held by employee stock ownership plans

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain reclassifications of amounts previously reported have been made to the accompanying consolidated financial statements to maintain consistency between periods presented. The reclassifications had no impact on net loss or stockholder’s equity.

 

Recent pronouncements

 

From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued that we adopt as of the specified effective date. We believe that the impact of recently issued standards that are not yet effective may have an impact on our results of operations and financial position.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases”, to improve financial reporting about leasing transactions. This ASU will require organizations that lease assets (“lessees”) to recognize a lease liability and a right-of-use asset on its balance sheet for all leases with terms of more than twelve months. A lease liability is a lessee’s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease, measured on a discounted basis and a right-of-use asset represents the lessee’s right to use, or control use of, a specified asset for the lease term. The amendments in this ASU leaves the accounting for the organization that own the assets leased to the lessee (“lessor”) largely unchanged except for targeted improvements to align it with the lessee accounting model and Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”.

The Company has evaluated the effect of the standard on our financial statements. Based on our evaluation, we will have one material lease subject to adoption of this standard, effective January 1, 2019. As disclosed in Note 7, we entered into a new office space lease that took effect on April 1, 2019 and recorded a right-of-use asset and corresponding liability for amounts that approximate our future commitments of $241,555.

Note 5. Convertible Notes (Related and Unrelated Party)

 

In March 2018, we closed an offering of $2,527,500 in convertible notes, Series CN Note 1 of 2, of which, management, directors and significant shareholders have invested $840,000. The convertible notes bear 10% interest per annum and are due and payable on March 14, 2020. The notes are convertible at any time prior to the due date into our common stock at a conversion price of $0.88 per share or 85% of the average closing price of the common stock over the twenty consecutive trading days immediately preceding the date of note holders’ election; but in no event lower than $0.60 per share. In addition, the interest is convertible at any time prior to the due dates into our common stock at conversion price of 85% of the average closing price of the common stock over the twenty consecutive trading days immediately preceding the date of note holders’ election; but in no event lower than $0.60 per share. There were 1,331,583 warrants issued, in conjunction with the convertible note offering.

 

The fair value of the warrants, $0.17 per share ($220,548 in the aggregate), was calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model using the following assumptions:

 

Expected life (in years)     3  
Volatility (based on a comparable company)     54.82 %
Risk Free interest rate     2.41 %
Dividend yield (on common stock)     -  

 

The value of $220,548 was recorded as a debt discount related to the issuance of the warrants.

 

In April 2018, we offered investors in our March 2018 Convertible Note (“Series CN Notes”) the opportunity to accelerate the issuance of certain warrants associated with the CN Notes. Pursuant to the acceleration offer, Series CN Notes investors who invested an additional 10% to 20% of the Series CN Note amount, immediately received an additional 25% warrant coverage on their initial CN Note investment, which would otherwise have been issued after one year. During April 2018, we closed the CN Note acceleration offer in the amount of $177,300 in convertible notes, of which, management, directors and significant shareholders have invested $30,000. The CN Note acceleration offer convertible notes bear 10% interest per annum and are due and payable on March 14, 2020. The notes are convertible at any time prior to the due date into our common stock at conversion price of $0.88 per share or 85% of the average closing price of the common stock over the twenty consecutive trading days immediately preceding the date of note holders’ election; but in no events lower than $0.60 per share. In addition, the interest is convertible at any time prior to the due dates into our common stock at conversion price of 85% of the average closing price of the common stock over the twenty consecutive trading days immediately preceding the date of note holders’ election; but in no events lower than $0.60 per share. There were 937,373 warrants issued in conjunction with the Series CN Note acceleration offer convertible note offering.

 

The fair value of the warrants, $0.25 per share ($235,519 in the aggregate), was calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model using the following assumptions:

 

Expected life (in years)     3  
Volatility (based on a comparable company)     55.49 %
Risk Free interest rate     2.45 %
Dividend yield (on common stock)     -  

 

The value of $105,199 was recorded as a debt discount related to the issuance of the warrants as using the fair value would cause the debt discount to exceed the gross proceeds received.

 

In November and December 2018, three investors elected to convert their convertible note issued on March 14, 2018 into stock. The total debt converted was $453,000 and $30,459 accrued interest into 804,396 shares of stock.

 

In March 2019, an investor elected to exercise I-Warrants by using part of the investor’s convertible note. The total debt settled was $350,634 of principal and 33,929 of accrued interest.

Note 6. Derivative Liabilities

 

As discussed in Note 5, Convertible Notes, the Company issued Series CN Note acceleration offer convertible notes payable that provide variable conversion provisions. The conversion terms of the convertible notes are variable based on certain factors, such as the future price of the Company’s common stock. The number of shares of common stock to be issued is based on the future price of the Company’s common stock, therefore the number of shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the promissory note is indeterminate.

 

The fair values of the Company’s derivative liabilities are estimated at the issuance date and are revalued at each subsequent reporting date. The Company recognized a derivative liability and debt discount of $569,588 at March 14, 2018 related to the Series CN Convertible notes 1 of 2; $69,400 at April 11, 2018 related to the Series CN Notes Warrant Acceleration; and $697,186 at November 30, 2018 related to the Series CN Convertible note 2 of 2. The derivative liability was revalued at June 30, 2019 with a value of $932,919. The Company recorded a gain of $798,746 and $196,841 for the three-months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018 respectively and $392,734 and ($247,896) for the six-months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018 respectively related to the derivative liability.

 

The fair value of the derivative liability for CN Convertible Note 1 of 2 and CN Note Warrant Acceleration was calculated using the Black-Scholes model using the following assumptions.

Note 10. Income Taxes

 

The provision for income taxes is determined in accordance with the provisions of ASC Topic 740, Accounting for Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax basis. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted income tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. ASC 740 requires a valuation allowance to reduce the deferred tax assets reported if, based on the weight of evidence, it is more than likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be recognized. Accordingly, at this time the Company has placed a valuation allowance on all tax assets. As of June 30, 2019, the estimated effective tax rate for the year will be zero.

 

There are open statutes of limitations for taxing authorities in federal and state jurisdictions to audit our tax returns from 2009 through the current period. Our policy is to account for income tax related interest and penalties in income tax expense in the statement of operations. There have been no income tax related interest or penalties assessed or recorded.

 

ASC 740 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. This pronouncement also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition.

 

For the six-month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, we did not have any interest and penalties associated with tax positions. As of June 30, 2019, we did not have any significant unrecognized uncertain tax positions.

 

Note 11. Liquidity

 

Liquidity During the six months ended June 30, 2019: We used cash for operations of $2,354,225, and purchased equipment for $319,157. We raised cash from the issuance of stock in the amount of $2,400,000, and we received cash for the exercise of warrants in the amount of $1,500,310. During the six months ended June 30, 2018, we used $2,732,466 of cash for operations, $678,287 for the purchase of equipment, received $37,968 from the sale of equipment, and used $6,062 for trademarks. We raised cash in the amount of $2,677,799 from the issuance of convertible notes, net of issuance costs, and $250,000 from the issuance of short term notes.

 

We have a history of operating losses and negative cash flow. As our operations grow, we expect to experience significant increases in our working capital requirements. These conditions raise substantial doubt over the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date the financial statements are issued.

The Company’s forecast for the next twelve months reflects a continuation of the improvement in cash flow from operations as the Company continues to reduce operating expenses and increase contracts with school locations, and military bases, and anticipates the roll-out of a National Account with over 2,500 locations. The Company has implemented numerous cost reduction measures which will reduce cash expenses over the next twelve months, including relocation of its headquarters office, as well as entering into a new contract for personnel related services. These two measures alone will yield $200,000 per year in cash savings, and the Company continues to pursue additional measures to reduce cash expenses. In addition, the Company has implemented new logistics arrangements which have already yielded substantial savings in the first half of 2019, which is expected to continue and accelerate over the next twelve months.

 

The Company has $1.8 million of convertible short term debt coming due in March of 2020. Approximately half of this debt is held by insiders. The Company expects that if available cash upon maturity of this debt is not adequate to repay the convertible short term debt, it will be able to extend the maturity date of that debt, in particular the portion held by insiders.

 

Management has evaluated these conditions, and concluded that there is substantial doubt over the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The actions discussed in this footnote could mitigate the substantial doubt raised by our historical operating results, and satisfying our liquidity needs twelve months from the issuance of the financial statements. However, the Company cannot predict, with certainty, the outcome of its actions to preserve liquidity, including the accuracy of its financial forecast, the ability to sustain the current trend of cost cutting, or the ability to extend the maturity date of the debt that is maturing in March of 2020.

 

Note 12. Subsequent Events

 

Management has evaluated all activity and concluded that no subsequent events have occurred that would require recognition in the financial statements or disclosure in the notes to the financial statements.

Barfresh is a leader in the creation, manufacturing and distribution of ready to blend frozen beverages. The current portfolio of products includes smoothies, shakes and frappes. Products are packaged in two distinct formats. The Company’s original single serve format features portion controlled and ready to blend beverage ingredient packs or “beverage packs”. The beverage packs contain all of the solid ingredients necessary to make the beverage, including the base (either sorbet, frozen yogurt or ice cream), real fruit pieces, juices and ice – five ounces of water are added before blending.

 

The Company’s bulk “Easy Pour” format also contains all of the solid ingredients necessary to make the beverage, packaged in gallon containers in a concentrated formula that is mixed “one to one” with water. The Company has recently launched a “no sugar added” version of the bulk “Easy Pour” format that is specifically targeted for the USDA national school meal program, including the School Breakfast Program, the National School Lunch Program, and Smart Snacks in Schools Program. The Company currently provides its products to over 400 school locations. In addition, the Company recently received approval from the United States Defense Logistics Agency (“DLA”) to sell its smoothie products into all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and has begun to sell its bulk Easy Pour product into a number of military bases in the United States. The Company currently provides its products to over 150 military base locations.

 

Domestic and international patents and patents pending are owned by Barfresh, as well as related trademarks for all of the single serve products. Patent rights have been granted in 13 jurisdictions including the United States. In addition, the Company has purchased all of the trademarks related to the patented products.

 

The Company conducts sales through several channels, including National Accounts, Regional Accounts, and Broadline Distributors. Barfresh’s primary broadline distribution arrangement is through an exclusive nationwide agreement with Sysco Corporation (“Sysco”), the U.S.’s largest broadline distributor, which was entered into during July 2014, and the exclusivity provisions of the contract were renewed for an additional two year term on October 2, 2017.

 

During 2016 and 2017 the Company announced that it had signed supply agreements with several of the major global on-site foodservice operators. On March 8, 2018, the Company announced that it had signed a new supply agreement with one of the largest of these foodservice operators, for exclusive distribution of four of Barfresh’s single serve sku’s. On November 14, 2018, the Company announced that it had received approval for multiple products to be rolled out to a national restaurant chain with over 2,500 locations.

 

The Company also sells to broadline distributors that supply products to the food services market place. Effective July 2, 2014, the Company entered into an exclusive agreement with Sysco Merchandising and Supply Chain Services, Inc. for resale by the Sysco Corporation (“Sysco”) to the foodservice industry of the Company’s ready-to-blend smoothies, shakes and frappes. Pursuant to that agreement, all Barfresh products are included in Sysco’s national core selection of beverage items, making Barfresh its exclusive single-serve, pre-portioned beverage provider. The agreement is mutually exclusive; however, Barfresh may also sell the products to other foodservice distributors, but only to the extent required for such foodservice distributors to service multi-unit chain operators with at least 20 units and where Sysco is not such multi- unit chain operator’s nominated distributor for our products. On October 2, 2017, the exclusivity provisions of the Sysco agreement were extended for an additional two year period, and expanded to cover bulk easy pour products, on a non-exclusive basis.

On October 26, 2015, Barfresh signed a five year agreement with PepsiCo North America Beverages, a division of PepsiCo, to become its exclusive sales representative within the food service channel to present Barfresh’s line of ready-to-blend smoothies and frozen beverages throughout the United States and Canada. Through this agreement, Barfresh’ products are included as part of PepsiCo’s offerings to its significant customer base. The agreement facilitates access to potential National customer accounts, through introductions provided by PepsiCo’s one-thousand plus person foodservice sales team. Barfresh products have become part of PepsiCo’s customer presentations at national trade shows and similar venues.

 

Barfresh utilizes contract manufacturers to manufacture all of the products in the United States. Production lines are currently operational at two locations. The first location is in Salt Lake City, which currently produces bulk easy pour products. The second location is with Yarnell Operations, LLC., a subsidiary of Shulze and Burch, located in Arkansas. The Yarnell’s agreement, which was signed during February, 2016, secures the capacity to ramp up to an incremental production capacity of 100 million units. Yarnell’s location enhances the company’s ability to efficiently move product throughout the supply chain to destinations in the eastern United States, home to many of the country’s large foodservice outlets.

 

During November, 2016, the Company received an equity investment from Unibel, the majority shareholder of the Bel Group (“Unibel”). The Bel Group is headquartered in Paris, France, with global operations in 33 countries, 30 production sites on 4 continents and nearly 12,000 employees. Its many branded products, including The Laughing Cow®, Mini Babybel® and Boursin®, are sold in over 130 countries around the world. Pursuant to the securities purchase agreement, Unibel purchased 15,625,000 shares of common stock at $0.64 per share (“Shares”) and warrants to purchase 7,812,500 shares of common stock (“Warrants”) for aggregate gross proceeds to Barfresh of $10 million. The Warrants are exercisable for a term of five years at a per share price of $.88 for cash. Pursuant to the Investor Rights agreement, Barfresh has registered the Shares and the Warrants, and Unibel was granted a seat on the Barfresh Board. This strategic investment provided Barfresh with necessary capital while leveraging Unibel’s more than 150 years of industrial expertise, innovative capabilities, world-class marketing and branding expertise to accelerate our growth in new and existing markets and product channels.

 

On February 14, 2018, we announced the private placement of convertible notes with gross proceeds of $4.1 million The closing shall be no later than five (5) business days after receipt of notice from the Company that it has achieved certain milestones establishing significant sales to national accounts. One milestone is that the Company shall have entered into a material agreement or series of related agreements with a national account for the sale of its products into approximately 1,000 new locations. The first milestone was achieved on March 8, 2018, and according to the terms of the note the Company has received 60% of the principal amount. The remaining 40% of the principal amount will be received upon achieving a second milestone, which is entering into a material agreement or series of related agreements with a national account for the sale of its products into approximately 2,500 new locations.

 

The convertible notes are unsecured and have (i) a two-year term, (ii) a 10% annual coupon to be paid in cash or stock at the Company’s discretion at a conversion price equal to 85% of the average closing bid prices of the Common Stock over the twenty (20) consecutive trading day period immediately preceding the payment date, but in no event lower than sixty cents ($0.60) per share of Common Stock. The investor’s may elect to convert their principal into common stock at a conversion price equal to the lower of: (i) $0.88 per share of Common Stock, or (ii) 85% of the average closing bid prices of the Common Stock over the twenty (20) consecutive trading day period immediately preceding the date of investor’s election to convert; but in no event lower than $0.60 per share of Common Stock. Investors also received warrant coverage of 25% of the number of shares that would be issuable upon a full conversion of the principal amount at an average of the twenty consecutive trading day period immediately preceding the applicable closing date. If any principal amount remains outstanding after the one-year anniversary of the closing, investors will be granted an additional warrant with identical terms. The warrants are exercisable for a period of three years for cash at the greater of 120% of the closing price or $0.70 per share of common stock. After the initial private placement, investors were offered the opportunity to accelerate the issuance of the additional warrant by increasing their convertible note investment by 10% to 20%. After the close of the first quarter, a number of investors took advantage of this acceleration opportunity, resulting in an increase in the amount of the total convertible note by $ 177,300 and the issuance of 930,332 additional warrants.

 

Currently we have 24 employees, 1 part time employee, and 1 consultant. There are currently 14 employees selling our products.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

 

  19  
 

 

Revenue Recognition

 

In accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, revenue is recognized when a customer obtains ownership of promised goods. The Company adopted this standard at the beginning of fiscal year 2018, with no significant impact to its financial position or results of operations, using the modified retrospective method. The amount of revenue recognized reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for these goods. The Company applies the following five steps:

 

  1) Identify the contract with a customer
     
    A contract with a customer exists when (i) the Company enters into an enforceable contract with a customer that defines each party’s rights, (ii) the contract has commercial substance and, (iii) the Company determines that collection of substantially all consideration for goods or services that are transferred is probable. For the Company, the contract is the approved sales order, which may also be supplemented by other agreements that formalize various terms and conditions with customers.
     
  2) Identify the performance obligation in the contract
     
    Performance obligations promised in a contract are identified based on the goods or that will be transferred to the customer. For the Company, this consists of the delivery of frozen beverages, which provide immediate benefit to the customer.
     
  3) Determine the transaction price
     
    The transaction price is determined based on the consideration to which the Company will be entitled in exchange for transferring goods, and is generally stated on the approved sales order. Variable consideration, which typically includes volume-based rebates or discounts, are estimated utilizing the most likely amount method.
     
  4) Allocate the transaction price to performance obligations in the contract
     
    Since our contracts contain a single performance obligation, delivery of frozen beverages, the transaction price is allocated to that single performance obligation.
     
  5) Recognize Revenue when or as the Company satisfies a performance obligation
     
    The Company recognizes revenue from the sale of frozen beverages when title and risk of loss passes, and the customer accepts the goods, which generally occurs at delivery. Customer sales incentives such as volume-based rebates or discounts are treated as a reduction of sales at the time the sale is recognized. Shipping and handling costs are treated as fulfillment costs and presented in distribution, selling and administrative costs.
     
    The company evaluated the requirement to disaggregate revenue, and concluded that substantially all of its revenue comes from a single product, frozen beverages.

 

Impairments

 

We periodically evaluate whether the carrying value of long-lived assets has been impaired when circumstances indicate the carrying value of those assets may not be recoverable. The carrying amount is not recoverable if it exceeds the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and eventual disposition of the asset. If the carrying value is not recoverable, the impairment loss is measured as the excess of the asset’s carrying value over its fair value.

 

Share-based Compensation

 

We account for share-based employee compensation plans under the fair value recognition and measurement provisions in accordance with applicable accounting standards, which require all share-based payments to employees, including grants of stock options and restricted stock units (RSUs), to be measured based on the grant date fair value of the awards, with the resulting expense generally recognized on a straight-line basis over the period during which the employee is required to perform service in exchange for the award.

 

Derivative Liability

 

The Company evaluates its convertible instruments, options, warrants or other contracts to determine if those contracts or embedded components of those contracts qualify as derivatives to be separately accounted for under ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives and Hedging.” The result of this accounting treatment is that the fair value of any derivative is marked-to-market each balance sheet date and recorded as a liability. In the event that the fair value is recorded as a liability, the change in fair value is recorded in the statement of operations as gain/loss from derivative liability. Upon conversion or exercise of a derivative instrument, the instrument is marked to fair value at the conversion date and then that fair value is reclassified to equity. We analyzed the derivative financial instruments in accordance with ASC 815. The objective is to provide guidance for determining whether an equity-linked financial instrument is indexed to an entity’s own stock. This determination is needed for a scope exception which would enable a derivative instrument to be accounted for under the accrual method. The classification of a non-derivative instrument that falls within the scope of ASC 815-40-05 “Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in, a Company’s Own Stock” also hinges on whether the instrument is indexed to an entity’s own stock. A non-derivative instrument that is not indexed to an entity’s own stock cannot be classified as equity and must be accounted for as a liability. There is a two-step approach in determining whether an instrument or embedded feature is indexed to an entity’s own stock. First, the instrument’s contingent exercise provisions, if any, must be evaluated, followed by an evaluation of the instrument’s settlement provisions. The Company utilized the fair value standard set forth by the Financial Accounting Standards Board, defined as the amount at which the assets (or liability) could be bought (or incurred) or sold (or settled) in a current transaction between willing parties, that is, other than in a forced or liquidation sale.

Results of Operations

 

Results of Operation for Three Months Ended June 30, 2019 as Compared to the Three Months Ended June 30, 2018

 

Revenue and cost of revenue

 

Revenue increased $296,499 (27%) from $1,086,166 in the three months ended June 30, 2018 to $1,382,665 in the three months ended June 30, 2019. The increase in revenue is primarily the result of the increasing popularity of our bulk Easy Pour product which was initially rolled out during the first quarter of 2017 and has continued to gain momentum, especially with school and military locations. Our products continue to be distributed through all 72 of Sysco’s U.S. mainland distribution centers, as well as through new customers beyond the Sysco distribution network.

 

Cost of revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $538,440 as compared to $531,619 for the three months ended June 30, 2019. Our gross profit was $547,726 (50.4%) for the three months ended June 30, 2018, and improved to $851,046 (61.6%) for the three months ended June 30, 2019. This improvement was driven by a number of factors, including leverage due to larger scale of production and product mix. We anticipate that our gross profit percentage for the remainder of 2019 will be comparable to the first half of 2019, or about approximately 58%.

 

Operating expenses

 

Our operations were primarily directed towards increasing sales and expanding our distribution network.

 

Our general and administrative expenses decreased $443,442 (20%) from $2,229,262 in the three months ended June 30, 2018, to $1,785,820, in the three months ended June 30, 2019. The improvement is driven by a number of factors, including lower personnel expenses resulting from the realignment of our sales force, increased efficiencies in our distribution network, lower rent expense resulting from the relocation of our headquarters office, and other cost savings initiatives. The following is a breakdown of our general and administrative expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018:

 

    three months
ended
    three months
ended
       
    June 30, 2019     June 30, 2018     Difference  
Personnel costs   $ 687,994     $ 839,866     $ (151,872 )
Stock based compensation/options     134,607       117,670       16,937  
Legal and professional fees     134,751       132,353       2,398

Marketing and selling     146,106       305,634       (159,528 )
Consulting fees     28,083       17,925       10,158  
Director fees     67,837       50,000       17,837  
Research and development     116,786       153,329       (36,543 )
Shipping     155,055       278,787       (123,731 )
Storage     37,573       14,487       23,086  
Other expenses     164,308       145,222       19,086  
      1,785,821       2,229,262       (443,442 )

Personnel cost represents the cost of employees including salaries, bonuses, employee benefits and employment taxes and continues to be our largest cost. Personnel cost decreased $151,872 (18%) from $839,866 to $687,994. We had 25 full time employees and 3 consultants at the end of the second quarter of 2018, and we currently have 24 full time employees, 1 part time employee and 1 consultant.

 

Stock based compensation is used as an incentive to attract new employees and to compensate existing employees. Stock based compensation includes stock issued and options granted to employees and non-employees. Stock compensation for the current quarter was $134,607, an increase of $16,937, or 14%, from the year ago quarter expense of $117,670. The increase is primarily due to the timing of equity grants. The Company issues additional stock options to its employees from time to time under its Equity Compensation Plan.

 

Legal and professional fees increased $2,398 (2%) from $132,353 in the three months ended June 30, 2018, to $134,751 in the three months ended June 30, 2019. We anticipate legal fees related to our business and financing activities to increase as our business continues to grow.

 

Travel expenses decreased $28,204 (22%) from $127,312 in the three months ended June 30, 2018, to $99,108 in the three months ended June 30, 2019. The decrease is primarily due to reduction in travel costs associated with the reduced number of employees, as well as an increased management focus on controlling spending. We anticipate that travel expenses for the balance of this year will be comparable to the current quarter.

 

Rent expense decreased 71%, from $46,677 in the three months ended June 30, 2018, to $13,612 in the three months ended June 30, 2019. This improvement in rent expense results from the relocation of our headquarters office effective April 1, 2019, to our current location, at 3600 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California pursuant to a new four year lease with monthly rent beginning at $6,547, as compared with $14,488 at our prior location.

 

Marketing and selling expenses decreased $159,528 (52%) from $305,634 in the three months ended June 30, 2018, to $146,106 in the three months ended June 30, 2019. Lower marketing and selling expenses were primarily due to changes that were made to certain sales commission agreement.

 

Consulting fees were $28,083 in the three months ended June 30, 2019, as compared with $17,925 in the three months ended June 30, 2018. Our consulting fees vary based on needs. We engaged consultants in the areas of sales and operations during the quarter. The need for future consulting services will be variable.

 

Director fees increased $17,837 from $50,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2018, to $67,837 in the three months ended June 30, 2019. Annual director fees are anticipated at $50,000 per non-employee director.

 

Research and development expenses decreased $36,543 (24%) from $153,329 in the three months ended June 30, 2018, to $116,786 in the three months ended June 30, 2019. These expenses relate to the services performed by our Director of Manufacturing and Product Development, and consultants supporting that employee. The decrease in research and development expense was primarily driven by timing of research activities.

 

Shipping expense decreased $123,731 (44%), from $278,787 in the three months ended June 30, 2018, to $155,055 in the three months ended June 30, 2019. Shipping expense as a percentage of revenue decreased from 26% in the three months ended June 30, 2018, to 11% in the three months ended June 30, 2019. The improvement in shipping expense is primarily due to the restructuring of our product distribution system, to move away from a forward warehouse system, in favor of a much higher utilization of a third party re-distribution system We anticipate that shipping expense as a percentage of sales will continue to improve during the balance of the year, as the Company continues to take advantage of more efficient distribution arrangements.

 

Storage expense increased $23,086 (159%), from $14,487 in the three months ended June 30, 2018 to $37,573 in the three months ended June 30, 2019. The increase in storage costs was primarily due to costs associated with the phase out of our forward warehouse program.

 

Other expenses consist of ordinary operating expenses such as investor relations, office, telephone, insurance, and stock related costs. We anticipate these expenses to be comparable for the balance of the year.

 

  22  
 

 

We had operating losses of $1,089,848 and $1,812,407 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The improvement of $722,559, or 40%, was primarily due to higher gross profit margin on higher sales, and lower G&A expenses.

 

Gain/loss from derivative liability was a gain of $798,746 for the three months ended June 30 2019, as compared to a gain of $196,841 for the three months ended of June 30, 2018. The increase in the gain was due to the change in the company’s stock price.

 

Interest expense in the three months ended June 30, 2019 was $282,814, as compared with $199,220 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. Interest relates to convertible debt in the amount of $2,527,500 that was issued on March 14, 2018, and in the amount of $1,363,200 that closed during December, 2018, each of which bears interest at 10%, and to a note payable in the amount of $250,000 that was issued on March 5, 2018, which bears interest at 12%. Interest expense includes amortization of $201,429 of the value of warrants issued with the convertible debt.

 

We had net losses of $573,916 and $1,814,786 in the three month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

 

Results of Operation for Six Months Ended June 30, 2019 as Compared to the Six Months Ended June 30, 2018

 

Revenue and cost of revenue

 

Revenue increased $507,962 (30%) from $1,709,237 in 2018 to $2,217,199 in 2019. The increase in revenue is primarily driven by the rollout of our new bulk Easy Pour product which began during the first quarter of 2017 which has continued to gain momentum, especially in the school and Military channels. Our product continues to be distributed through all 72 of Sysco’s U.S. mainland distribution centers, as well as through new customers beyond the Sysco distribution network.

 

Cost of revenue for 2018 was $828,490 as compared to $931,449 in 2019. Our gross profit was $880,747 (51.5%) and $1,285,750 (58%) for 2018 and 2019, respectively. We anticipate that our gross profit percentage for the remainder of 2019 will be approximately 58%.

Personnel cost decreased $90,811 (5%) from $1,737,671 in 2018, to $1,646,860 in 2019. During the fourth quarters of 2016 and 2017, we realigned ours sales force to a more efficient model, by increasing the number of dedicated sales brokers that represent our products, and reducing the number of sales force employees. We had 25 full time employees and 3 consultants at the end of the second quarter of 2018, and we currently have 24 full time employees, 1 part time employee, and 1 consultant.

 

Stock based compensation is used as an incentive to attract new employees and to compensate existing employees. Stock based compensation includes stock issued and options granted to employees and non-employees. Stock compensation for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $271,548, a decrease of $92,897, or 26%, from the year ago period expense of $364,445. The decrease is primarily due to the reductions in our work force and the timing of equity grants. The Company issues additional stock options to its employees from time to time under its Equity Compensation Plan.

 

Legal and professional fees decreased $45,976 (19%) from $239,724 in 2018 to $193,748 in 2019. The decrease was primarily due to a timing of legal services required. We anticipate legal fees related to our business and financing activities to increase as our business continues to grow.

 

Travel expenses was $211,160 in 2018, and reduced slightly to $210,867 in 2019. We anticipate that travel expenses for the balance of this year will be about $30,000 lower than the first half of this year due to our increased focus on controlling costs.

 

Rent expense is primarily for our headquarter location, which was located in Beverly Hills, California during the first quarter of 2019. Rent expense for the Beverly Hills office was approximately $14,488 per month. Effective April 1, 2019, we relocated our headquarters office to our current location, at 3600 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California pursuant to a new four year lease, with monthly rental cost of $6,173.50.

 

Marketing and selling expenses decreased $160,479 (34%) from $466,014 in 2018 to $305,535 in 2019. Lower marketing and selling expenses were due to changes that were made to certain sales commission agreement.

 

Consulting fees were $33,499 in 2019, as compared with $35,659 in 2018. Our consulting fees vary based on needs. We engaged consultants in the areas of sales and operations during the period. The need for future consulting services will be variable.

 

Director fees increased $17,837 from $112,500 in 2018 to $130,337 in 2019. Annual director fees are $50,000 per non-employee director.

 

Research and development expenses decreased $70,685 (21%) from $343,670 in 2018 to $272,985 in 2019. These expenses relate to the services performed by our Director of Manufacturing and Product Development, consultants supporting that employee, and certain commissioning expenses at our contract manufacturing locations

 

Shipping expense decreased $181,028 (42%) from $434,422 in 2018 to $253,394 in 2019. Shipping expense as a percentage of revenue was comparable at 25.4% in 2018, and improved to 11.4% in 2019. The improvement in shipping expense is primarily due to the restructuring of our product distribution system, to move away from a forward warehouse system, in favor of a much higher utilization of a third party re-distribution system. We anticipate that shipping and storage expense as a percentage of sales will continue to improve during the balance of the year, as the Company is able to take advantage of more efficient distribution arrangements.

 

Storage expense increased $63,957 (257%), from $24,923 in 2018 to $88,880 in 2019. The increase in storage costs was primarily due to costs associated with the phase out of our forward warehouse program.

 

Other expenses consist of ordinary operating expenses such as investor relations, office, telephone, insurance, and stock related costs. We anticipate these expenses to be comparable for the balance of the year.

 

We had operating losses of $2,860,565 and $3,674,932 for the six month periods ended June 30 2019 and 2018, respectively. The improvement of $814,367 or 22.2%, was primarily due to higher gross margin percent on higher sales, and lower G&A expenses.

Gain/loss from derivative liability was a gain of $392,734 for the six months ended June 30 2019, as compared to a loss of $247,896 for the six months ended of June 30, 2018. The increase in the gain was due to the change in the company’s stock price. Interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $645,887 and was $230,096 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Interest relates to convertible debt in the amount of $2,527,500 that was issued on March 14, 2018, and in the amount of $1,363,200 that closed during December, 2018, each of which bear interest at 10%, and to a note payable in the amount of $250,000 that was issued on March 5, 2018, which bears interest at 12%, and to acceleration notes in the amount of $177,300, issued on April 11, 2018, which bear interest at 10%. Interest expense includes amortization of $479,015 of the value of warrants issued with the convertible debt.

 

We had net losses of $3,421,178 and $4,152,924 in the six month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Liquidity During the six months ended June 30, 2019: We used cash for operations of $2,354,225, and purchased equipment for $319,157. We raised cash from the issuance of stock in the amount of $2,400,000, and we received cash for the exercise of warrants in the amount of $1,500,310. During the six months ended June 30, 2018, we used $2,732,466 of cash for operations, $678,287 for the purchase of equipment, received $37,968 from the sale of equipment, and used $6,062 for trademarks. We raised cash in the amount of $2,677,799 from the issuance of convertible notes, net of issuance costs, and $250,000 from the issuance of short term notes.

 

We have a history of operating losses and negative cash flow. As our operations grow, we expect to experience significant increases in our working capital requirements. These conditions raise substantial doubt over the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date the financial statements are issued.

 

As of June 30, 2019, we had $2,268,315 of cash on the balance sheet. We have continued to significantly reduce core operating expenses, reducing total General and Administrative Expense in the first six months of 2019 by $534,661, or 12.4%, as compared with the first six months of 2018. Cash used in operations in the second quarter of 2019 improved to $160,081 per month, as compared with $624,661 per month in the first quarter of 2019. The Company’s forecast for the next twelve months reflects a continuation of the improvement in cash flow from operations as the Company continues to reduce operating expenses and increase contracts with school locations, and military bases, and anticipates the roll-out of a National Account with over 2,500 locations. The Company has implemented numerous cost reduction measures which will reduce cash expenses over the next twelve months, including relocation of its headquarters office, as well as entering into a new contract for personnel related services. These two measures alone will yield $200,000 per year in cash savings, and the Company continues to pursue additional measures to reduce cash expenses. In addition, the Company has implemented new logistics arrangements which have already yielded substantial savings in the first half of 2019, which is expected to continue and accelerate over the next twelve months.

 

The Company has $1.8 million of convertible short term debt coming due in March of 2020. Approximately half of this debt is held by insiders. The Company expects that if available cash upon maturity of this debt is not adequate to repay the convertible short term debt, it will be able to extend the maturity date of that debt, in particular the portion held by insiders.

 

Management has evaluated these conditions, and concluded that there is substantial doubt over the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The actions discussed in this footnote could mitigate the substantial doubt raised by our historical operating results, and satisfying our liquidity needs twelve months from the issuance of the financial statements. However, the Company cannot predict, with certainty, the outcome of its actions to preserve liquidity, including the accuracy of its financial forecast, the ability to sustain the current trend of cost cutting, or the ability to extend the maturity date of the debt that is maturing in March of 2020.
