Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

1. Basis of Presentation and Going Concern

 

a) Interim Financial Information

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information pursuant to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments and reclassifications considered necessary in order to make the financial statements not misleading and for a fair and comparable presentation have been included and are of a normal recurring nature. Operating results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 filed with the SEC on May 13, 2019.

 

b) Functional and Reporting Currency

 

These interim financial statements are presented in United States Dollars. The functional currency of the Company is the Canadian Dollar. For purposes of preparing these interim financial statements, balances denominated in Canadian Dollars outstanding at March 31, 2019 were converted into United States Dollars at a rate of 1.34 Canadian Dollars to one United States Dollar. Balances denominated in Canadian Dollars outstanding at December 31, 2018 were converted into United States Dollars at a rate of 1.36 Canadian Dollars to one United States Dollar. Transactions denominated in Canadian Dollars for the period ended March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 were converted into United States Dollars at an average rate of 1.33 and 1.30 Canadian Dollars to one United States Dollar, respectfully.

 

c) Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of condensed unaudited financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the interim financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

 

d) Going Concern

 

These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes that the Company will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. During the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, the Company incurred a net loss of $126,473 and as of that date, the Company’s accumulated deficit was $10,480,772. While the Company has demonstrated the ability to generate revenue, there are no assurances that it will be able to achieve level of revenues adequate to generate sufficient cash flow from operations or obtain additional financing through private placements, public offerings and/or bank financing necessary to support our working capital requirements. To the extent that funds generated from any private placements, public offerings and/or bank financing are insufficient, we will have to raise additional working capital. No assurance can be given that additional financing will be available, or if available, will be on acceptable terms. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. If adequate working capital is not available we may be forced to discontinue operations, which would cause investors to lose their entire investment. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result relating to the recoverability and classification of the asset carrying amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that might result from the outcome of this risk and uncertainty.

 

2. Significant Accounting Policies

 

The accounting polices used in the preparation of these interim financial statements are consistent with those of the Company’s audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

The Company also implemented the following accounting standard effective January 1, 2018.

 

In January 2019, ASC 842 was implemented related to the valuation of leases. Under this guidance, leases should be capitalized that contain terms over one year and values over the capitalization policies. This standard became effective for the Company’s fiscal year beginning January 1, 2019. The adoption of ASC 842 on January 1, 2019 did not have any impact on the way leases were recognized as there are no capital leases during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

On march 8th, 2019; The Board of Directors authorized the submission of a Certificate of Change/Amendment to the Nevada Secretary of State in which the Company sought to affect a reverse split of its common stock at the rate of 1 for 6 for the purpose of increasing the per share price for the Company’s stock in an effort to meet the minimum listing requirements of the Canadian Stock Exchange (“CSE”).

FINRA declared the 1 for 6 reverse stock split effective on March 29, 2019.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

The following management’s discussion and analysis (“MD&A”) should be read in conjunction with financial statements of FNHI, and its wholly owned subsidiary, Worksport, Ltd. for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, and the notes thereto. Additional information relating to FNHI is available at Worksport.ca.

 

Safe Harbor for Forward-Looking Statements

 

Certain statements included in this MD&A constitute forward-looking statements, including those identified by the expressions anticipate, believe, plan, estimate, expect, intend, and similar expressions to the extent they relate to FNHI or its management. These forward-looking statements are not facts, promises, or guarantees; rather, they reflect current expectations regarding future results or events. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results, activities, performance, or events to differ materially from current expectations. These include risks related to revenue growth, operating results, industry, products, and litigation, as well as the matters discussed in FNHI’s MD&A under Risk Factors .

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and the related notes included in this report.

 

Revenue

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, revenue generated from the entire line of Worksport products was $572,278, compared to $150,878 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The year over year increase of approximately 279% was mainly attributable to the availability of inventory to partially satisfy customer orders.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, revenue generated in Canada was $25,602 compared to $102,141 for the same period in 2018, a decrease of 75%. The decrease was primarily due to a higher demand in the United States, resulting in temporarily limited factory capacity to handle Canadian market sales. The rate of exchange between the Canadian Dollar and the United States Dollar during the first three months of fiscal 2019 was consistent, which limited the historically negative effect on reported revenues as a result of translating the sales denominated in Canadian Dollars to United States Dollars for financial statement reporting purposes. For the three months ended March 31, 2019, gross revenue generated in the United States was $583,422 compared to $48,736 for the same period in 2018. This represents a year-over-year increase in US-sourced revenue of approximately 1,097% and is primarily attributable to re-entering the US market as of mid-2018 and continuing to increase sales which included online retailers and the support of four private labels, after the allowance of use of the Worksport trademark.

 

Currently, Worksport works closely with one major distributor in Canada, along with its own contracted distribution and inventory facility in Breinigsville, PA and Depew, NY. This does not include multiple independent online retailers.

 

Although Worksport currently supports a total of 10 dealers and distributors, Worksport believes the trend of increasing sales through online retailers will continue to outpace the traditional distribution business model. Moreover, reputable online retailer’s customers tend to provide larger sales volumes, greater margin of profit as well as greater protection against price erosion.

Cost of sales increased for the first three months of fiscal 2019, when compared to the first three months of fiscal 2018, by 209% from $139,937 to $432,948. The increase was primarily due to the higher volume of sales for the first quarter of 2019 when compared to the same period of 2018. Our cost of sales, as a percentage of sales, was approximately 76% and 93% for three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

 

Within cost of sales, freight costs accounted for 9% of cost of sales during the three months ended March 31, 2019, whereas in 2018, it accounted for 26% of cost of sales. The large decrease in the percentage of cost of sales is due to the increase in sales for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 being larger US orders with economies to scale in shipping. Also, in 2019, retail online orders were drop-shipped sales FOB China to our online vendors reducing intermediary costs.

Worksport provides its distributors and online retailers an “all-in” wholesale price. This includes any import duty charges, taxes and shipping charges. Discounts are applied if the distributor or retailer chooses to use their own shipping process. Certain exceptions apply on rare occasions where product is shipped outside the contiguous United States or from the United States to Canada. Volume discounts are also offered to certain higher volume customers.

 

Gross Margin

 

Gross margin percentage for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 were 24% and 8% respectively. The increase in gross margin reflects an increase in one-time shipping costs in landing product in our US warehouse for 2018. In addition, the gross margin percentage for the three months ended March 31, 2018 were abnormally low as a result of the fluctuation in foreign exchange rates used to translate Canadian Dollar sales into United States Dollars for purposes of financial reporting.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2019 were $226,644 compared to $189,956 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Although there were decreases in general and administrative expenses and foreign exchange, theses expenses were offset by larger increases in sales and marketing, and professional fees incurred for the period.

 

  General and administrative expense decreased by $26,247, from $66,818 to $40,571 during the three months ended March 31, 2018. The main reason for the decrease was a major reduction in salaries provided to the CEO for the first quarter.
     
  The Company also realized a gain on foreign exchange in the amount of $9,165 during the three months ended March 31, 2019, a decrease of $16,808 when compared to a loss on foreign exchange of ($7,643) during the three months ended March 31, 2018. The current gains and previous loss were the result of the Company converting Canadian cash generated by sales to Canadian customers into United States Dollars in order to purchase inventory and pay operating expenses denominated in United States Dollars.
     
  Professional fees which include accounting, legal and consulting fees, increased from $121,526 for the three months ended March 31, 2018 to $172,502 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The increase is related to increased accounting and audit fees, consulting, legal services and SEC filing fees between the two periods.

 

Other Income and Expenses

 

Other income and expenses for the first quarter at March 31, 2019 was $39,160 compared with $512,431 at March 31, 2018. The major difference consisted of a loss on debt settlement of $495,943 and financing charges of $9,198 that occurred in the first quarter of 2018.

 

During the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, the Company incurred interest of $39,160 an increase of $31,870 when compared to interest expense of $7,290 incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2018. This was due to the interest accruals not previously being recorded in 2018 until the end of the year. The Company had assumed Canadian and US dollar promissory notes in 2017 in the amount of $123,392 with terms of 12% and 18%. In addition, two lines of credit in both Canadian and US dollar currencies were assumed with an interest rate of 18% in 2016. The interest from these loans were 95% of the interest expense and the other 5% was for bank interest.

 

Net Loss

 

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $126,473 compared to a net loss of $691,446 for the three months ended March 31, 2018, a difference of $564,973 or 82%. The decrease in the net loss was mainly due to the loss of debt settlement in the amount of $495,943; financing costs of $9,198; and an increase in professional fees of $50,976 as discussed above.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Cash Flow Activities

 

Cash decreased from $25,323 at December 31, 2018 to $21,900 at March 31, 2019. The decrease was primarily the result of the timing of inbound payments from customers, and outbound payments to vendors. Accounts receivable increased by $293,186 from $61,882 at December 31, 2018 to $355,068 at March 31, 2018. Inventory decreased at December 31, 2018 from $289,516 at March 31, 2018 to $164,693 largely as a result of the timing of the receipt of inventory shipments. Prepaid expenses decreased by $118,688 from $124,114 at December 31, 2018 to $5,426 at March 31, 2019 due to the completion of a large amount of consulting services for this quarter. Payroll taxes payable decreased from $82,365 to $65,376 due to a larger reduction in salaries to related parties. Accounts payable and accrued liabilities increased by $154,125 from $401,766 at December 31, 2018 to $555,891 at March 31, 2018. The increase in payables is related to large purchases related to increased sales during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our discussion and analysis of results of operations and financial condition are based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We evaluate our estimates on an ongoing basis, including those related to provisions for uncollectible accounts receivable, inventories, valuation of intangible assets and contingencies and litigation. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

The accounting policies that we follow are set forth in Note 2 to our financial statements as included in the Form 10K filed on May 13, 2019. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”), the Company carried out an evaluation, with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) (the Company’s principal financial and accounting officer), of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. The framework used by management in making that assessment was the criteria set forth in the document entitled “Internal Control – Integrated Framework” issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (2013 framework). Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s CEO and CFO concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective as of March 31, 2019 to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that the Company files or submits 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 the Company’s management, including the Company’s CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure for the reason described below.

 

Because of our limited operations, we have limited number of employees which prohibits a segregation of duties. In addition, we lack a formal audit committee with a financial expert. As we grow and expand our operations we will engage additional employees and experts as needed. However, there can be no assurance that our operations will expand.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
