CONVERSION LABS, INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2019

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 – NATURE OF THE ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS

 

Nature of Business

 

Conversions Labs, Inc. (“Conversion Labs,” “we,” “us,” “our,” the “Company”) is an internet-based direct response marketing company that in-licenses, acquires and creates innovative and proprietary products that are sold to consumers around the world via our technology infrastructure and relationships with agencies, third party marketers, and online advertising platforms such as Facebook, Google and Amazon. We currently have three commercial stage products Shapiro MD, a patented shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in foamer for thicker, fuller hair, iNR Wellness MD, a nutritional supplement for immune support and PDF Simpli, a PDF conversion software, which was acquired through the purchase of 51% of the membership interests of LegalSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company, which operates a marketing-driven software solutions business.

 

We launched our online direct marketing business in the fourth quarter of 2015 with the establishment of a partnership with Inate Skincare, LLC (“Inate”). Our initial intention was to launch a skin care line containing our proprietary ingredients and to market such products directly to consumers. We entered into a limited liability company operating agreement with our joint venture partners with respect to Inate under the legal name Immudyne PR LLC (“Immudyne PR”, now Conversion Labs PR LLC (“Conversion Labs PR”)). On April 1, 2016, the original operating agreement of Immudyne PR was amended and restated and we increased our ownership and voting interest in Immudyne PR to 78.2%.

 

During 2016, we utilized third party entities to provide and increase credit card processing capacity and optimize corresponding rates and fees through one or more merchant bank accounts held by such entities. Some of the entities contracted to provide these services had been determined to be variable interest entities (“VIEs”) and were consolidated in the Company’s financial statements. The one (1%) percent fee received by these VIEs was eliminated in consolidation of the net revenues processed and collected by such contractors from sales initiated by the Company. The remaining entities provided such services as independent contractors, the majority of which were considered related parties and no fee was paid. Upon receipt of funds by such contractors from their respective merchant banks, the Company required the prompt transfer of funds to Company controlled accounts. The Company reimbursed and/or advanced funds to such contractors for any deficit or charge related to returns, chargeback and other fees charged by such merchant bank. By the year ended December 31, 2018, we ceased processing credit card charges through all VIE merchant accounts. At December 31, 2018, we recorded the merchant reserves from these VIE merchant accounts on our balance sheet as accounts receivable.

 

As used in these financial statements and unless otherwise indicated, the terms “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to Conversion Labs, Inc. (formerly known as Immudyne, Inc.) and our majority-owned subsidiaries LegalSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company (“LegalSimpli”), Conversion Labs PR, LLC (formerly Immudyne PR LLC), a Puerto Rico limited liability company (“Conversion Labs PR”), and Conversion Labs Asia Limited, a Hong Kong company (“Conversion Labs Asia”). Unless otherwise specified, all dollar amounts are expressed in United States dollars.

 

Acquisition of Membership Interest Purchase Agreement

 

On May 29, 2018, Immudyne PR acquired 51% of the membership interests (the “Membership Interests”) of LegalSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company (“LegalSimpli”), which operates a marketing-driven software solutions business. In consideration for Immudyne PR’s purchase of the Membership Interests, Immudyne PR paid $150,000 (the “Initial Payment”) to the sellers upon execution of the purchase agreement. Additionally, Conversion Labs PR agreed to pay up to an additional $200,000 for such Membership Interests and an additional $400,000 of contingent consideration should the Company or Conversion Labs PR ever pay a dividend.

Going Concern

 

The Company has funded operations in the past through the sales of its products, issuance of common stock and through loans and advances from officers and directors. The Company’s continued operations are dependent upon obtaining an increase in its sales volume and the continued financial support from officers and directors or the issuance of additional shares of common stock. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on the basis that the Company will continue as a going concern, which assumes the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. At March 31, 2019, the Company had an accumulated deficit approximating $12.9 million and has incurred negative cash flows from operations. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Based on the Company’s cash balance at March 31, 2019, and projected cash needs for 2019, management estimates that it will need to increase sales revenue and/or raise additional capital to cover operating and capital requirements for the 2019 fiscal year. Management will need to raise the additional needed funds through increased sales volume, issuing additional shares of common stock or other equity securities, or obtaining debt financing. Although management has been successful to date in raising capital to fund operations, there can be no assurance that sales revenue will substantially increase or that any required future financing can be successfully completed on a timely basis, or on terms acceptable to the Company.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The Company evaluates the need to consolidate affiliates based on standards set forth in ASC 810 Consolidation (“ASC 810”). The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries, Conversion Labs PR and LegalSimpli and variable interest entities (VIE’s) in which the Company has been determined to be the primary beneficiary. The non-controlling interest in Conversion Labs PR represents the 21.833% equity interest held by other members of the joint venture. All significant consolidated transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Management’s Representation of Interim Financial Statements

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company without audit pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted as allowed by such rules and regulations, and management believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These consolidated financial statements include all of the adjustments, which in the opinion of management are necessary to a fair presentation of financial position and results of operations. All such adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements at December 31, 2018 and 2017 filed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K with the SEC on March 29, 2019.

 

Variable Interest Entities

 

The Company follows ASC 810-10-15 guidance with respect to accounting for variable interest entities (each, a “VIE”). These entities do not have sufficient equity at risk to finance their activities without additional subordinated financial support from other parties or whose equity investors lack any of the characteristics of a controlling financial interest. A variable interest is an investment or other interest that will absorb portions of a VIE’s expected losses or receive portions of its expected residual returns and are contractual, ownership, or pecuniary in nature and that change with changes in the fair value of the entity’s net assets. A reporting entity is the primary beneficiary of a VIE and must consolidate it when that party has a variable interest, or combination of variable interests, that provides it with a controlling financial interest. A party is deemed to have a controlling financial interest if it meets both of the power and losses/benefits criteria. The power criterion is the ability to direct the activities of the VIE that most significantly impact its economic performance. The losses/benefits criterion is the obligation to absorb losses from, or right to receive benefits from, the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE. The VIE model requires an ongoing reconsideration of whether a reporting entity is the primary beneficiary of a VIE due to changes in facts and circumstances.

 

7

 

 

By our fiscal year ending December 31, 2018, we ceased processing credit card charges through all VIE merchant accounts. At March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, we recorded the merchant reserves from these VIE merchant accounts on our balance sheet as accounts receivable.

 

Conversion Labs PR is the primary beneficiary of Innerwell Skincare LLC, Spurs 5, LLC, and Salus LLC, which are qualified as VIEs. The assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses of these VIEs are included in the financial statements of Conversion Labs PR and are further included in the condensed consolidated financial statements. The assets and liabilities include balances due from and due to the subsidiaries of Conversion Labs PR. These inter-company receivables and payables are eliminated upon consolidation of the VIE with Conversion Labs PR and the Company. No assets were pledged or given as collateral against any borrowings.

 

The Company utilizes third party entities to provide and increase credit card processing capacity and optimize corresponding rates and fees. A majority of these entities provide this service as independent contractors in exchange for a one (1%) percent fee of the net revenues processed and collected by such contractors from sales initiated by the Company. The VIEs consolidated in the Company’s financial statements are primarily contracted to credit card processing through one or more merchant banks contracted by each VIE. Upon receipt of funds by each VIE, the collection of receipts less any returns, chargeback and other fees charged by such merchant bank is transferred to Conversion Labs PR.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The Company prepares its condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America which requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Some of the more significant estimates required to be made by management include the determination of reserves for accounts receivable, returns and allowances, the accounting for derivatives, the valuation of inventory and stockholders’ equity-based transactions. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Inventory

 

At March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, inventory consisted primarily of finished cosmetic products. Inventory is maintained in a third-party warehouse in Pennsylvania.

 

Inventory is valued at the lower of cost or net realizable value with cost determined on a first-in, first-out (“FIFO”) basis. Management compares the cost of inventory with the net realizable value and an allowance is made for writing down inventory to net realizable, if lower. At March 31, 2019, and December 31, 2018, the Company recorded an inventory reserve in the amount of $12,500 and $12,500, respectively. As of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the inventory balances were approximately $877,000 and $1,022,000, respectively.

 

Product Deposits

 

Many of our vendors require deposits when a purchase order is placed for goods. Our vendors issue a credit memo when sending their final invoice, reducing the amount the Company owes for the deposit amount on file with the vendors. As of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company has $0 and $33,302, respectively of products deposit with multiple vendors for the purchase of raw materials for products we sell online.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company records revenue under the adoption of ASC 606 by analyzing exchanges with its customers using a five-step analysis such as identifying performance obligations in the contract, estimating the amount of variable consideration to include in the transaction price and allocating the transaction price to each separate performance obligation.

For the Company’s product-based contracts with customers, the Company generally records sales of finished products once the customer places and pays for the order and the product is simultaneously shipped, but in limited cases if title does not pass until the product reaches the customer’s delivery site, then recognition of revenue should be deferred until that time, however the Company does not have a process to properly record the recognition of revenue if orders are not immediately shipped. Delivery is considered to have occurred when title and risk of loss have transferred to the customer, which is usually upon shipment of the product. The Company records an estimate for provisions of discounts, returns, allowances, customer rebates and other adjustments for each shipment, and are netted with gross sales. The Company accounts for such provisions during the same period in which the related revenues are earned. The Company has determined that the population of contracts with customers tends to be homogenous, so that review of the contracts and estimate of various revenue related adjustments can be applied to the entire population.

 

The Company began testing a trial offers with the Shapiro MD products in late 2018. The Company was unable to adequately implement a process to report any trial-based sales and the related impact on inventory. Given the relatively new trial period being offered, the Company has not been able to estimate the historical effect to determine how this will change the recording of revenue.

 

For the Company’s software subscription-based contracts with customers, the Company records the sales after completion of the customers 14-day free trial and at the end of the service period for which the customer purchased a monthly subscription or records revenue over time as the yearly subscription lapses. The Company offers either a monthly subscription or a yearly subscription to the Company’s software. The Company offers a discount for purchase of the yearly subscription, which must be paid at initiation of the contract term, so that the Contract price is fixed at the contract initiation. Yearly subscriptions for the software are recorded net of discount.

 

Customer discounts, returns and rebates for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 approximated $552,000 and $300,000, respectively.

 

Accounts receivable

 

Accounts receivable are carried at original invoice amount less an estimate made for holdbacks and doubtful receivables based on a review of all outstanding amounts. Management determines the allowance for doubtful accounts by regularly evaluating individual customer receivables and considering a customer’s financial condition, credit history and current economic conditions and sets up an allowance for doubtful accounts when collection is uncertain. Customers’ accounts are written off when all attempts to collect have been exhausted. Recoveries of accounts receivable previously written off are recorded as income when received. At March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the accounts receivable reserve was approximately $0 and $0, respectively. At March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the reserve for sales returns and allowances was approximately $81,000 and $43,000, respectively.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company files Corporate Federal and State tax returns, while Conversion Labs PR and LegalSimpli, which were formed as limited liability companies, file separate tax returns with any tax liabilities or benefits passing through to its members.

 

The Company records current and deferred taxes in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes.” This ASC requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for temporary differences between tax basis of assets and liabilities and the amounts at which they are carried in the financial statements, based upon the enacted rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company establishes a valuation allowance when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. The Company periodically assesses the value of its deferred tax asset, a majority of which has been generated by a history of net operating losses and determines the necessity for a valuation allowance. ASC 740 also provides a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. Using this guidance, a company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position in its financial statements only if it is more likely-than-not (i.e., a likelihood of more than 50%) that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position.

The Company’s tax returns for all years since December 31, 2014, remain open to federal and state taxing authorities.

 

At March 31, 2019, the Company has approximately $4,237,000 of operating loss carryforwards for federal that may be applied against future taxable income. The net operating loss carryforwards will begin to expire in the year 2021 if not utilized prior to that date, expiring during various years through 2037. There is no provision for income taxes because the Company has historically incurred operating losses and maintains a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets. The Company has fully reserved the deferred tax asset resulting from available net operating loss carryforwards.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company follows the provisions of ASC 718, “Share-Based Payment”. Under this guidance compensation cost generally is recognized at fair value on the date of the grant and amortized over the respective vesting periods. The fair value of options at the date of grant is estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The expected option life is derived from assumed exercise rates based upon historical exercise patterns and represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. The expected volatility is based upon historical volatility of the Company’s shares using weekly price observations over an observation period that approximates the expected life of the options. The risk-free rate approximates the U.S. Treasury yield curve rate in effect at the time of grant for periods similar to the expected option life. Due to limited history of forfeitures, the estimated forfeiture rate included in the option valuation was zero.

 

Many of the assumptions require significant judgment and any changes could have a material impact in the determination of stock-based compensation expense.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per common share is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during each period presented. Warrants and options to purchase common stock are included as common stock equivalents only when dilutive. Potential common stock equivalents are excluded from dilutive earnings per share when the effects would be antidilutive.

 

Common stock equivalents comprising shares underlying 27,200 options and warrants for the three months ended March 31, 2019, respectively, have not been included in the income per share calculations as the effects are anti-dilutive.

 

Common stock equivalents comprising shares underlying 5,481,100 options and warrants for the three months ended March 31, 2018, have not been included in the loss per share calculation as the effects are anti-dilutive.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements  

 

All other accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by the FASB that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The carrying value of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash, trade accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses and the face amount of notes payable approximate fair value for all periods.

 

Noncontrolling Interests

 

The Company accounts for its less than 100% interests in Conversion Labs PR and LegalSimpli in accordance with ASC Topic 810, Consolidation, and accordingly the Company presents noncontrolling interests as a component of equity on its consolidated balance sheet and reports the noncontrolling interest’s share of the Conversion Labs PR, and LegalSimpli’s net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests in the consolidated statement of operations.

 

Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities

 

In accordance with ASC 810-10-25-37 and as amended by ASU 2009-17, the Company determines whether any legal entity in which the Company becomes involved is a VIE and subject to consolidation. The Company conducts an assessment on an ongoing basis for each VIE including (1) the power to direct activities of the VIE that most significantly impact the VIE’s economic performance, and (2) the obligation to absorb losses or right to receive benefits from the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE. As a result, the Company determined that six entities were VIEs and subject to consolidation.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

The Company grants credit in the normal course of business to its customers. The Company periodically performs credit analysis and monitors the financial condition of its customers to reduce credit risk.

 

The Company monitors its positions with, and the credit quality of, the financial institutions with which it invests. The Company, at times, maintains balances in various operating accounts in excess of federally insured limits.

 

Although the Company does have some wholesale customers, over 90% of the Company’s sales are to unique customers. Since the Company sells its products to thousands of customers, there is no accounts receivable concentration from customers. However, the Company uses merchant processors to charge customer credit cards and does contain concentration risk between credit card processors.

 

As of March 31, 2019, the Company’s accounts receivable had no significant concentration from any one customer. As of March 31, 2019, three credit card processors accounted for 51%, 35% and 14% of accounts receivable.

NOTE 4 – BUSINESS COMBINATION

 

Acquisition of Membership Interest Purchase Agreement

 

On May 29, 2018 (the “Closing Date”), Immudyne, PR entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) by and among nine individuals, as sellers and Conversion Labs PR, as buyer (“Buyer”), pursuant to which Buyer acquired from Sellers all of Sellers’ right, title and interest in and to 51% of the membership interests (the “Membership Interests”) of LegalSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company (“LegalSimpli”), which operates a marketing-driven software solutions business.

 

In consideration for Buyer’s purchase of the Membership Interests the Buyer paid $150,000 (the “Initial Payment”) to the Sellers upon execution of the Purchase Agreement. Additionally, Buyer may be obligated to pay up to an additional $200,000 in accordance with the following milestones (the “Milestones”): (i) $100,000 to the Sellers on the 90-day anniversary of the Purchase Agreement, so long as LegalSimpli’s gross revenue for the preceding 30-day period is equal to or greater than $75,000; and (ii) $100,000 to the Sellers on the 180-day anniversary of the Purchase Agreement, so long as LegalSimpli’s gross revenue for the preceding 30-day period is equal to or greater than $150,000, with a minimum net profit margin of 25% in each instance. As of December 31, 2018, while the Company does not anticipate LegalSimpli meeting the above milestones, the Company anticipates that it is probable that the Company will pay $200,000 consideration to the Sellers for these milestones. Regardless of whether LegalSimpli achieves either or both of the Milestones, Buyer will retain full ownership of the Membership Interests. In addition, the Purchase Agreement calls for an additional $400,000 of consideration to be paid to the Sellers if/when Conversion Labs PR (formerly Immudyne PR) or the Company ever pay a dividend to shareholders. The Company has determined that it is probable that at some future point that the Company will pay this $400,000 to the Sellers.

Pursuant to the license granted under the Agreement, Conversion Labs PR obtains an exclusive license to incorporate (i) any intellectual property rights related to the Product Line and (ii) all designs, drawings, formulas, chemical compositions and specifications used or useable in the Product Line into one or more products manufactured, sold, and/or distributed by Alphabet for the treatment of purpura, bruising, post-procedural bruising and traumatic bruising and for all other fields of use or purposes (the “Licensed Product(s)”), and to make, have made, advertise, promote, market, sell, import, export, use, offer to sell and distribute the Licensed Product(s) throughout the world with the exception of China, Hong Kong, Japan, and Australia (the “License”).

 

The Company shall pay Alphabet a royalty equal to 13% of Gross Receipts (as defined in the Agreement) realized from the sales of Licensed Products. Further, so long as the Agreement is not previously terminated, the Company, also agreed to pay Alphabet $50,000 on the 120-day anniversary of the Agreement and an additional $50,000 on the 360-day anniversary of the Agreement.

 

Upon execution of the Agreement, Alphabet will be granted a 10-year option to purchase 100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.50.

Restricted Stock and Options

 

The Company entered into two agreements on April 1, 2016, with two consultants of Conversion Labs PR for business development, marketing and sales related services (the “Consultant Agreements”). The consultants are treated as employees for accounting purposes. Upon signing, each consultant was issued 1,000,000 restricted shares of the Company’s common stock. In addition, each consultant shall receive an additional 150,000 restricted shares of the Company’s common stock for each $500,000 distributed by Conversion Labs PR to the Company. For each consultant, the number of shares of common stock to be issued by the Company to the consultants shall be capped at 1,500,000 restricted shares of common stock when Conversion Labs PR has transferred $5,000,000 to the Company, for a combined capped total of 3,000,000 restricted shares of common stock. For the year ended December 31, 2016, 2,300,000 restricted shares of common stock have been issued related to the Consultant. The Company valued the shares of common stock at their grant date for a value of $0.30 per share for a total of $690,000 to be expensed over the estimated service period.

 

In addition, the Consultant Agreements provided that each consultant shall receive a bonus of an additional 750,000 restricted shares of the Company’s common stock, plus an option to buy 1,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a price of $0.20 per share (including a cashless exercise feature) when Conversion Labs PR has transferred to the Company at each of the following three (3) thresholds: $1,250,000, $2,000,000 and $3,000,000 for a total of 2,250,000 of restricted shares of the Company’s common stock and options to purchase up to 3,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a price of $0.20 per share. As of March 31, 2019, no bonus shares had been issued, and no options have been granted under the Consultant Agreement.

Legal Matters

 

In the normal course of business operations, the Company may become involved in various legal matters. At March 31, 2019, the Company’s management does not believe that there are any potential legal matters that could have an adverse effect on the Company’s financial position.

 

NOTE 9 – LEASES

 

On January 1, 2019, we adopted ASU 2016-02 using the optional transition method resulting in a cumulative-effect adjustment to our Consolidated Balance Sheets. Comparative financial statements of prior periods have not been adjusted to apply the new method retrospectively. The new method of accounting was applied only to leases that have ongoing minimum lease commitments after January 1, 2019, excluding short-term leases.

 

The Company has applied the practical expedient for leases less than 12-months for the following lease, and as such has excluded it from the calculation of right of use assets and lease liabilities. Conversion Labs PR utilizes office space in Puerto Rico which is subleased from Mr. Schreiber (the Company’s President and CEO) and incurs expense of approximately $4,000 per month for this office space.

 

In February 2018, the Company entered into a 3-year agreement to lease office space in Huntington Beach, CA beginning on March 2, 2018. The rent is payable on a monthly basis in the amount of $2,106 for the first twelve months, $2,149 for the second twelve months and $2,235 for the third twelve months. The Company has recognized a right of use asset and lease liability of $30,287 as of January 1, 2019, for adopting ASC 842, and has classified this lease as an operating lease. The lease did not contain any interest for use in the present value calculation, as a result, the Company used the third-party interest rate from similar borrowings of 7%. The Company has paid a security deposit of $2,235 was paid for this lease. The lease payment for this lease were $6,382 and the implied interest for such lease was $4,241.

 

Rent expense, including short-term lease, for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, was $30,477 and $16,023, respectively.

 

NOTE 10 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

Other

 

Certain related party transactions were incurred by the legacy business that was sold in February 2018, including reimbursement of home office expenditures to the Company’s former President and CEO, employment of the Company’s former President and CEO’s wife, and legal and business advisory services provided by one of the Company’s directors. 

 

Chief Executive Officer

 

JLS Ventures LLC, owned by our current CEO, provides credit card processing services through one or more merchant banks. JLS Ventures LLC did not receive any compensation for these services. In July 2017, the Company and JLS Ventures, an entity owned by the Company’s current Chief Executive Officer, entered into a second amendment to a Service Agreement effective July 1, 2017. As compensation, the Company issued 900,000 shares of common stock valued at $432,000. The Company is recognizing the expense over the term of the agreement. In May 2018, the Company issued 1,000,000 shares of common stock valued at $230,000 to JLS Ventures, LLC, for services. The Company also committed to issue an additional 1,000,000 shares of common stock on January 1, 2019 valued in the aggregate amount of $230,000 if JLS Ventures met the service requirement specified in the agreement. These 2,000,000 shares serve as the compensation for Mr. Schreiber for his services as CEO of the Company. The Company is recognizing the expense for the issuances over the twenty-four-month term of the agreement.

 

On November 20, 2017, the Company entered into an agreement (the “ Agreement ”) with JOJ Holdings, LLC (“ JOJ ”). Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, Conversion Labs, Inc. (“Conversion Labs”) purchased 2,000,000 shares (post-split from a 2:1 forward split on January 16, 2018) of Blockchain Industries, Inc. (“BCII”) from JOJ. The Agreement was amended on December 8, 2017 and again on March 9, 2018. In consideration for the purchase, Conversion Labs agreed to issue one (1) share of Conversion Labs common stock to JOJ for every dollar Conversion Labs realizes from gross proceeds on the sale of shares of BCII purchased pursuant to the Agreement, up to a total maximum aggregate amount of 5,000,000 shares. The Company has 3 years to sell the shares of BCII and has agreed not to sell more than 20% of the 30-day average daily trading volume of BCII. Justin Schreiber, the Company’s President and CEO is the President and owner of JOJ. The transaction was determined not to meet the criteria for recognition as an exchange transaction, therefore no asset or liability has been recorded in the financial statements.

 

JSDC, Inc., owned by CEO, provides credit card processing services through one or more merchant banks. JSDC, Inc. did not receive any compensation for these services.

 

Conversion Labs PR utilizes office space in Puerto Rico which is subleased from Mr. Schreiber (President and CEO) incurs expense of approximately $4,000 a month on month-to-month terms for this office space.

As used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and unless otherwise indicated, the terms “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to Conversion Labs, Inc. (formerly known as Immudyne, Inc.) and our majority-owned subsidiaries LegalSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company (“LegalSimpli”), Conversion Labs PR, LLC (formerly Immudyne PR LLC), a Puerto Rico limited liability company (“Conversion Labs PR”), and Conversion Labs Asia Limited, a Hong Kong company (“Conversion Labs Asia”). Unless otherwise specified, all dollar amounts are expressed in United States dollars.

 

Corporate History and Overview

 

Conversion Labs, Inc. is a diversified online direct response marketing company that creates, in-licenses, and acquires proprietary and innovative consumer products that address large unmet needs in the online marketplace. We sell our products directly to consumers through advertisements on Facebook, Google, Amazon, and other social media and e-commerce platforms. Secondarily, we sell our products to traditional retailers, wholesalers and physicians’ offices.

 

We currently have four commercial stage brands in our portfolio:

 

Shapiro MD: Launched in 2017, Shapiro MD is a patented line of shampoo, conditioner and leave-in foamer for thicker, fuller hair. The Shapiro MD line also includes a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approved minoxidil product and a supplement for hair loss.

 

iNR Wellness MD: Launched in 2018, iNR Wellness MD is a beta glucan nutritional supplement for immune support. There are a multitude of published studies, many noted on the National Institute of Health website, relating to the health benefits of beta glucan. The FDA and the European Food Safety Authority have approved health claims related to the maintenance or reduction of blood cholesterol and consumption of 3 grams of beta-glucan daily.

 

Scarology: Launched in 2019, Scarology is a proprietary 3 step Scar Care System designed to improve the overall color, texture and appearance of scars. The system consists of a natural fruit acid exfoliator, a proprietary scar healing cream and silicon scar sheets.

 

PDF Simpli: Launched in 2018, PDF Simpli is a PDF conversion software product, which was acquired through the purchase of 51% of the membership interests of LegalSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company, which operates a marketing-driven software solutions business.

 

We launched our online direct marketing business in the fourth quarter of 2015 with the establishment of a partnership with Inate Skincare, LLC (“Inate”). Our initial intention was to launch a skin care line containing our proprietary ingredients and to market such products directly to consumers. We entered into a limited liability company operating agreement with our joint venture partners with respect to Inate under the legal name Immudyne PR LLC (“Immudyne PR”). On April 1, 2016, the original operating agreement of Immudyne PR was amended and restated and we increased our ownership and voting interest in Immudyne PR to 78.2%. Subsequently, concurrent with the name change of the parent company to Conversion Labs, Inc., Immudyne PR was renamed to Conversion Labs PR LLC.

Our priority is to pursue opportunities to market our products and increase sales. We expect that a significant component of our selling, general and administration expenses going forward will consist of advertising fees and service fees to maintain skilled professionals to market our products online. These aforementioned costs, along with the additional costs resulting from our operations as a public reporting company, could adversely impact our future results of operations.

 

We historically have expended a significant amount of our funds on obtaining and protecting our patents, trade secrets and proprietary products. We rely on the patent and trademark protection laws in the U.S. to protect our intellectual property and maintain our competitive position in the marketplace. We have historically operated with limited capital and have funded operations in the past through the sales of our products and loans and advances from our executives and directors.

 

Divestiture of Nutraceutical and Cosmetic Additives Business

 

Throughout 2017, we manufactured, distributed and sold natural immune support products containing our proprietary yeast beta glucans, a group of beta glucans naturally occurring in the cell walls of yeast that have been shown through testing and analysis to support the immune system. Beta glucans, or β-Glucans, are a natural extract that are considered to be “biological response modifiers” that support the immune system. The most common sources of beta glucans are from the cell walls of baker’s yeast, the cellulose in plants, the bran of cereal grains and certain fungi and bacteria.

 

In the first quarter of 2018 we sold all assets and liabilities related to our legacy business that manufactured raw yeast beta glucan. As a result of this divestiture, we now solely operate our online direct marketing business through our majority-owned operating subsidiary, Conversion Labs PR.

 

Our Products

 

We currently have four commercial stage brands. Generally, our business model is to license or acquire innovative products that address large, global unmet needs which can be placed onto our internet based or “online” direct response marketing platform. We seek to protect the market position of our products with intellectual property, trade secrets, trademarks and brand equity. Our brands and products are as follows:

 

Shapiro MD ®

 

Launched in the second quarter of 2017, Shapiro MD is a patented line of hair products designed to help men and women regain thicker, fuller and healthier looking hair. The products in our Shapiro MD line currently include a shampoo, a conditioner, a leave-in foamer, and a “product” which contains Minoxidil, an FDA-approved product for hair growth. Additionally, we are in the process of adding an FDA-cleared laser cap to our Shapiro MD product line. The Shapiro MD Shampoo and Conditioner are the result of 15 years of research and development by Dr. Steven Shapiro and Dr. Michael Borenstein. The Shapiro MD product line is protected by two U.S. patents and typically contains three naturally-occurring dihydrotestosterone (DHT) blocking ingredients. DHT is widely believed to be the main culprit of balding/hair-loss. Clinical research on the ingredients used in Shapiro MD products has been published in scientific journals, including U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, International Journal of Dermatology and European Hair Research Society.

 

iNR Wellness MD ®

 

Launched in 2018, iNR Wellness MD is a nutritional supplement for immune support. The iNR Wellness product line is a daily nutritional supplement that contains yeast, oat, and mushroom beta glucans. Beta glucans, or β-Glucans, are a natural extract considered to be “biological response modifiers” that support the immune system. Our three naturally occurring beta glucans have clinically shown to support the human immune system and are commonly used as an OTC supplement to reduce cholesterol levels, maintain healthy blood glucose levels, and support the immune system. Our spokespersons for our iNR Wellness MD brand include Dr. Joseph DiTrolio, Dr. Jack Gilbert, and Dr. Liz Lipski, who are leading doctors/researchers in fields such as urology, microbiology, and nutrition. General scientific research on beta glucans has been conducted in recent years by renowned medical laboratories, including Baylor College of Medicine, U.S. Armed Forces Radiobiology Institute, Stanford University, Harvard University, and North Carolina State University. As more studies are conducted on beta glucans, we believe the potential benefits to human health will continue to emerge. Although the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has historically endorsed the consumption of oat glucan/dietary fiber as an aid to lower cholesterol, most of the testing and analysis or scientific research mentioned in this annual report has not been subject to oversight of the FDA or any comparable regulatory body, and no regulatory body has attested to the efficacy of beta glucans in supporting the immune system or treating disease. Further, the marketing of beta glucans is not subject to FDA approval, and we are prohibited by Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) and FDA regulations from suggesting in advertisements and product labels that our products mitigate, treat, cure or prevent a specific disease or class of disease.

PDF Simpli

 

Launched in 2018, PDFSimpli is a PDF conversion software, which we acquired in June 2018 through the purchase of 51% of the membership interests of LegalSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company. PDFSimpli enables users to convert, edit and sign PDF documents and has had over 3 terabytes of documents converted or edited by customers from the legal, financial, real-estate and academic sectors. As of February 28, 2019, PDFSimpli was ranked in the top 100,000 websites globally, in which it was also ranked in the top 2,500 for specific countries and has more than 650,000 registered users globally. PDFSimpli has had over 3 terabytes of documents converted or edited by customers from the legal, financial, real-estate and academic sectors.

 

Scarology™

 

Launched in 2018, Scarology is a topically applied scar healing solution delivered through a day and night routine. The system consists of a natural fruit acid exfoliator, a proprietary scar healing cream and silicon scar sheets. The Scarology system was developed by two prominent dermatologists and has been tested extensively in a clinical environment. The current global scar treatment market is estimated to be more than $10 billion and is expected to grow to more than $34.5 billion by 2025.

 

Growth Strategy

 

We actively seek to acquire, license and develop products and brands with large untapped e-commerce potential and proven business models. We intend to continue to grow revenue and profitability of our three commercial stage consumer products. We also expect that PDFSimpli will continue to grow and will achieve profitability in 2019. We continue to actively seek new brands to buy or license to expand our product offerings and add to our growth.

 

We have begun selling all of our products in international markets and we believe this represents a significant growth opportunity for us. We also entered into a strategic partnership in Asia in 2018. We are in the process of building an e-commerce infrastructure in Asia where we anticipate completion in the first half of 2019.

 

In early 2019, we also launched a service-based business under the name Conversion Labs Media LLC, which will be used to run e-commerce marketing campaigns for other online businesses. Conversion Labs Media LLC intends to develop, run, and optimize advertising and media strategies for third parties looking to continue their growth on online platforms such as Amazon, Google, and Facebook. These services will be monetized through a monthly consulting model or on a revenue share basis.

Results of Operations

 

Comparison of the Three Months Ended March 31, 2019 to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2018

 

Revenue and Operating Expenses

 

Our revenue, operating expenses and net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 are summarized as follows:

 

    For the Three Months Ended  
    March 31 2019     March 31 2018  
Net sales   $ 2,698,990             $ 1,606,491

Net (loss) income attributable to noncontrolling interests     (69,816 )     (3 )%     12,697       1 %
Net (loss) income attributable to Conversion Labs, Inc.   $ (663,747 )     (25 )%   $ 627,277       39 %

  

Net Sales

 

Sales were approximately $2.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to approximately $1.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The increase of approximately 68% is attributed mainly to revenue from the purchase of the majority of LegalSimpli and more resources being invested into our in-licensed patented hair loss shampoo, conditioner, and leave in foam continuing to increase during the first quarter of 2019.

 

23

 

 

Cost of Sales

 

Total cost of sales was approximately $678,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to approximately $355,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The increase is primarily due to the revenue increase from the purchase of the majority of LegalSimpli. This increase was partially mitigated by our ability to secure better inventory pricing and margin of our in-licensed patented hair loss shampoo, conditioner, and leave in foam during the first quarter of 2019. Cost of sales consists primarily of material costs and related overhead directly attributable to the production of our products. Cost of Sales as a percentage of income decreased as we were able to take advantage of volume pricing discounts from our vendors.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit was approximately $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to approximately $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018, an increase of approximately 62%. The increase in our gross profit was primarily the result of the increased sales of our in-licensed patented hair loss shampoo, conditioner and leave-in foam.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Total operating expenses increased approximately 69% to approximately $2.6 million for the three months ended  March 31, 2019 , from approximately $1.5 million for the three months ended  March 31, 2018 The increase in our operating expenses between the periods was mostly attributable to our increased marketing efforts for our in-licensed patented hair loss shampoo, conditioner and leave-in foam, which increased approximately $795,000 over from the three-months ended March 31, 2019 compared to the three-months ended March 31, 2018. We also had increased professional fees, compensation and related expense costs, and lower general and administrative expense during the comparable period.

 

Net Income

 

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was approximately $733,000, compared to net income of approximately $640,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Our net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was mostly attributable to our increased marketing efforts, whereas our net income for the three months ended March 31, 2018 was mostly attributable to the sale of the Company’s legacy business.

Cash Flows

 

The following table sets forth a summary of changes in cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018:

 

    Three Months Ended
March 31,
 
    2019     2018  
Net cash provided by operating activities   $ 546,464     $ 65,928  
Net cash (used in) provided by investing activities     (500,000 )     190,000  
Net cash provided by (used in) financing activities     15,702       (167,479 )
Change in cash   $ 62,166     $ 88,449  

 

Operating Activities

 

Net cash provided by operating activities was $546,464 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 primarily due to increases in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $747,429, stock compensation expense of $154,600 and amortization of debt discount of 131,596.

 

Net cash from operating activities was $65,928 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Cash from operating activities during the three months ended March 31, 2018 was primarily due to the net income of $639,974.

 

Investing Activities

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, net cash used in investing activities was $500,00 for payments related to the purchase of LegalSimpli.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2018, net cash used in investing activities was $190,000 for proceeds related to the sale of the legacy business.

 

Financing Activities

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, net cash provided by financing activities was $15,702 of which $50,000 was received from the issuance of notes, partially offset by distributions to noncontrolling interest totaling $34,298.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2018, net cash used in financing activities was $167,479 which related to the payment of notes payable.

 

Going Concern and Future Financing

 

Our principal demands for liquidity are to increase sales via online marketing, purchase inventory and for sales distribution and general corporate purposes. We incurred negative operating cash flows of our continued operations to date in 2019 as well as in the 2018 fiscal year. As a result, we have substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

We will require additional funds to implement our growth strategy for our business. In addition, while we have received capital from various private placements and convertible loans that have enabled us to fund our operations, these funds have been largely used to supplement our working capital, although additional funds are needed for other corporate operational and working capital purposes. At this time and at our current burn rate, we have sufficient capital to fund our operations through the balance of this fiscal year. At this time, we have not determined the amount that may be needed. These funds may be raised through equity financing, debt financing, or other sources, which may result in further dilution in the equity ownership of our shares. There can be no assurance that additional financing will be available to us when needed or, if available, that it can be obtained on commercially reasonable terms. If we are not able to obtain the additional financing on a timely basis should it be required, or generate significant material revenues from operations, we will not be able to meet our other obligations as they become due and we will be forced to scale down or perhaps even cease our operations.

 

Equity Financings

 

On January 1, 2019, in connection with the Company’s agreement with JLS Ventures, LLC, the Company issued 1,000,000 shares of restricted stock to JLS Ventures, LLC.

 

25

 

 

On February 27, 2019, the Company entered into a short-term note agreement for $100,000 that was repaid prior to the end of this quarter. As part of the note agreement, the Company issued 100,000 restricted shares of common stock to the note holder valued at $16,000.

 

Debt Financings

 

None.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our significant accounting policies are more fully described in the notes to our financial statements included herein for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and in the notes to our consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, as filed with the SEC on March 29, 2019.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Any recently issued accounting pronouncements are more fully described in Note 1 to our financial statements included herein for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources Outlook

 

The Company has funded operations in the past through the sales of its products, issuance of common stock and through loans and advances from officers and directors. The Company’s continued operations are dependent upon obtaining an increase in its sales volume and the continued financial support from officers and directors or the issuance of additional shares of common stock.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on the basis that the Company will continue as a going concern, which assumes the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. At March 31, 2019, the Company has an accumulated deficit approximating $12.9 million and a working capital deficit approximating $668,000. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Based on the Company’s cash balance at December 31, 2018, and projected cash needs for 2019, management estimates that it will need to increase sales revenue and/or raise additional capital to cover operating and capital requirements for the 2019 year. Management will need to raise the additional needed funds through increased sales volume, issuing additional shares of common stock or other equity securities, or obtaining debt financing. Although management has been successful to date in raising necessary funding, there can be no assurance that sales revenue will substantially increase or that any required future financing can be successfully completed on a timely basis, or on terms acceptable to the Company.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

Not Applicable. As a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide the information required by this Item.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures (as that term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures. In designing disclosure controls and procedures, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures. The design of any disclosure controls and procedures also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance of achieving the desired control objectives.

 

Our management, with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon that evaluation and subject to the foregoing, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to the material weakness(es) in internal control over financial reporting described below. 

 

Material Weakness in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Management conducted an assessment of the effectiveness of the Registrant’s internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2019 based on the framework established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on this assessment, management has determined that the Registrant’s internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2019 was not effective.

 

A material weakness, as defined in the standards established by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the “Sarbanes-Oxley Act”), is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

 

The ineffectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was due to the following material weaknesses which are indicative of many small companies with small number of staff:

 

Lack of a functioning audit committee and a lack of a majority of outside directors on the Company’s board of directors, resulting in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures;

 

Inadequate segregation of duties consistent with control objectives;

 

Insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both US GAAP and SEC Guidelines;

 

Inadequate security and restricted access to computer systems including a disaster recovery plan;

 

Lack of formal written policy for the approval, identification and authorization of related party transactions; and

 

No written whistleblower policy.

  

27

 

 

Management’s Plan to Remediate the Material Weakness

 

Management has been implementing and continues to implement measures designed to ensure that control deficiencies contributing to the material weakness are remediated, such that these controls are designed, implemented, and operating effectively. The remediation actions planned include:

 

Continue to search for and evaluate qualified independent outside directors;

 

Identify gaps in our skills base and the expertise of our staff required to meet the financial reporting requirements of a public company;

 

Continue to develop policies and procedures on internal control over financial reporting and monitor the effectiveness of operations on existing controls and procedures;

 

Identify and remedy gaps in our security and restricted access policies to computer systems and implement a disaster recovery plan; and

 

Develop a written whistleblower policy.

   

During the quarter ended March 31, 2019, we continued to execute upon our planned remediation actions which are all intended to strengthen our overall control environment. During Q 2019 we have (i) begun a search for expert qualified independent third-party individuals to sit on our Board of Directors; (ii) retained an expert consulting firm to assist the Company in updating and drafting our written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting; (iii) retained an expert consulting firm to assist the Company in developing a disaster recovery plan and whistleblower policy; and (iv) have migrated the accounting functions, internal control policies and procedures of LegalSimpli Software, LLC under the Company’s policies and procedures. We believe the above steps will improve oversight of internal controls over financial reporting.

 

We are committed to maintaining a strong internal control environment and believe that these remediation efforts will represent significant improvements in our control environment. Our management will continue to monitor and evaluate the relevance of our risk-based approach and the effectiveness of our internal controls and procedures over financial reporting on an ongoing basis and is committed to taking further action and implementing additional enhancements or improvements, as necessary and as funds allow.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2019 that have materially affected, or that are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
