ITEM 1. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The management would like to disclose that the audit review related to this Form 10-Q report related to fiscal period ending March 31, 2019 has not been completed by the PCAOB auditor and a subsequent amended 10Q will be filed by the management as soon as the auditor review is completed for this fiscal period. The reason for the delay in the audit review is because of the significant delays experienced by the auditor in completing the audit of the FY 2018 financial statements because of lack of strong financial controls by the prior finance executive management, including inaccurate book-keeping records of company financials, lack of easily accessible expense records and failure to match certain contract terms to invoices, lack of necessary backup documentation in support of financial transactions and lack of proper documentation related to terms and invoices that have introduced considerable challenges to performing accurate and timely audit and review of financial books of records by both current management and the newly introduced independent auditors. Current management is working closely with the auditors to mitigate these challenges and is hopeful of completing the audit and subsequent review within the next few weeks followed by an amended filing of the required financial reports.

 

In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and the results of operations for the periods presented have been reflected herein. The results of operations for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Organization and Description of Business

 

GEX Management, Inc. was originally formed in 2004 as Group Excellence Management, LLC. d/b/a MyEasyHQ. In March of 2016, it was converted from a limited liability company into a C corporation and changed its name to GEX Management, Inc. in April of 2016. GEX Management obtained its license to operate as a Professional Employer Organization (PEO), and established GEX Staffing, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of GEX Management, in March 2017 in order to begin distinguishing its staffing and PEO operations.

 

Carl Dorvil founded Group Excellence, LLC, a tutoring and mentoring company, from his dorm room at Southern Methodist University in 2004. Group Excellence provided tutoring and mentoring services to students with the goal of inspiring young persons to pursue high personal and academic achievement. The company quickly grew to more than six hundred employees. In 2011, Group Excellence was on Inc. 500’s annual list of the 500 fastest growing private companies in the United States.

 

In response to rapid growth, Mr. Dorvil developed GEX Management to facilitate the back-office functions of his company. GEX Management provided Group Excellence, LLC with human resources, IT, accounting/bookkeeping, social media, payroll, and conducted a majority of the overall operations of the company. Mr. Dorvil sold Group Excellence, LLC in 2011 but maintained ownership of GEX Management, which continued as a Professional Services Company providing back office support to the tutoring company, as well as third-party clients. In 2016 GEX Management revised its business model to provide staffing and back-office services to a wide variety of industries in order to expand the Company’s footprint, thereby building on the previous 12-year history of exceptional client service. On February 23, 2018, the US Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross, mentioned at the “African American Leaders in the White House: Education, Business and Policy” that Dorvil was “the youngest African American CEO ever to take a company public in U.S. history.”

 

Over the last few years, GEX Management experienced tremendous growth in sales and customer pipeline - staffing business grew by over 1600%+ from 2016 to 2017 with the firm being named among the “fastest growing public companies in the North Texas region” by the Dallas Morning News, while also significantly expanding its client footprints across multiple staffing, business consulting and PEO opportunities.

 

In September 2018, the Company terminated contracts with two customers who accounted for over 83% of the Company’s net staffing revenue, resulting in significant loss of revenue to the company in Q4 2018 and Q1 2019. The termination of these and other contracts was attributable to the increased business risk associated with Merchant Cash Advance contracts requiring attachment of future receivables of customer receipts with the MCA institutions as well as a result of management decision to move away from low margin, high cost contracts which were deemed detrimental to the company’s sustained operability and profitability in the long run.

Despite these setbacks, the current management, has set strategic goals in 2019 to expand into areas of higher margin and higher growth categories particularly in the space of IT and Management Consulting as well as identify synergistic opportunities within the healthcare sector to deliver significant cost rationalization, benefits and integrated staffing solutions to clients and customers alike. As a result of management efforts towards achieving this strategic goal, GEX Management was invited in February to be a Preferred Supplier to Insight Global ( www.insightglobal.com ), one of the largest Managed Service Providers ( MSPs) to Fortune 100 Companies in the Enterprise Technology Consulting and Staffing solutions space. This has resulted in a significant new business development opportunity for GEX that is expected to yield a strong revenue and growth pipeline starting Q2 2019, with sales expected to pick up momentum in Q3 and Q4 2019. The first technology consultant that GEX hired through this Preferred Supplier initiative has already been successfully placed at a large PA based financial services firm to provide Business and Quality Analysis professional services to the client with the consultant expected to begin onsite services via GEX starting June 2019; additional contract hires are expected to follow suit with sales expected to significantly pick up during the second half of the year as a result of GEX sales and recruiting efforts for preferred placement opportunities across the country. Additionally, GEX executed a strategic staffing agreement with a leading Ohio based Healthcare group to deliver staffing, HR management, payroll processing and benefit administration services to the client’s healthcare and clinical practice centers in the mid-west region which is expected to show results starting Q2 2019. Furthermore, GEX is in talks with multiple staffing and consulting companies to identify synergistic acquisition opportunities to help compensate for the lost revenue and growth momentum in Q4 2018 and Q1 2019 due to the contract terminations and regain its position as one of the fastest growing staffing businesses in the local and national markets while also developing a long term and sustainable business pipeline model. Management expects these and other potential organic and inorganic growth initiatives to help the firm eventually achieve strong and stable revenue growth while also help move towards profitability by targeting a higher margin, lower cost business model and relying on less expensive debt instruments to help reduce the burden across the firm’s capital structure while maximizing efficient use of operating capital during future periods.

 

In addition to these planned strategic growth initiatives which are expected to fully materialize during the second half of 2019, management has been focusing on materially improving its balance sheet by significantly reducing or eliminating the debt or debt like instruments related to convertible notes and asset related liens introduced in 2018 while simultaneously exploring opportunities to reduce or eliminate the high interest MCA related toxic debt instruments that resulted in significant interest expenses to the company and a burden to operating capital. As part of this balance sheet “clean-up” initiative, on February 8 2019, GEXM and the G&C Family LLC executed a “Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure” agreement the terms of which would allow GEXM to release ownership of the Arkansas building under AMAST LLC to the G&C Family Group, LLC in return for cancellation of the $1,300,000 real estate lien note secured by the building along with any and all accrued interest payable on the note as of the date of the agreement. Additionally, on March 5, 2019, one of GEX’s promissory note holders proceeded to execute its rights to enforce the liens on the Setco property through a foreclosure process which resulted in the note holder taking possession of the Setco property resulting in the elimination of a $500,000 note and any accrued interest on the principal amount and the elimination of $1,125,000 Setco real estate lien note made to Setco along with any accrued interests from the Company books. Furthermore, GEX has been able to reduce the overall convertible notes burden on the balance sheet which totaled to over $1.2M by over 40% of the principal outstanding balance to less than $750,000 as of April 2019 through strategic conversions of these notes to common equity initiated by the convertible note issuers throughout Q1 2019, thus demonstrating a strong market interest by retail and institutional investors in the GEX growth platform evidenced by the record high market volume of GEX trading stock in the OTC markets - this momentum is expected to sustain through 2019 and beyond as a result of these management growth initiatives and the continued support of investors and shareholders alike. Finally, management believes that the material reduction of MCA related debt like instruments will be a critical first step prior to rebuilding a robust revenue pipeline as this will require strong working capital and favorable leverage covenants to sustain operations in the long term as well as reduce liabilities related to attachment to future receivables. The inability or failure by the firm to immediately address these toxic MCA instruments could result in management pursuing a restructuring program or similar initiatives to bring the balance sheet within reasonable covenant parameters to allow the firm to continue operating efficiently in the coming years without exposing future customers to significant business risks associated with these toxic instruments.

Material Definitive Agreements

 

On December 29, 2017 GEX purchased 100% of the membership interest in AMAST Consulting, LLC (“AMAST”), which owned a multi-use office building in Lowell, Arkansas, which had an occupancy rate of 100% at the time of the acquisition. The terms of the Agreement to purchase AMAST include the fulfillment of the lease obligations of the current tenants, as well as the assumption of the debt that is collateralized by the building and associated property. The consolidated financials include the assets and debt of AMAST.

 

On May 2, 2018, the Company purchased a 25% interest in Payroll Express, LLC (PE), a California limited liability company for $500,000 in cash. The Company recognized this investment under the equity method due to its ability to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of PE. Additionally, the Company had the right, but not the obligation, to purchase an additional 26% interest under similar terms. On June 11, 2018, the Company paid $250,000 in cash to the owners of Payroll Express as a deposit towards purchasing additional shares in PE and is recorded in Other Assets on the Balance Sheet

 

On August 3, 2018, the Company entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement with PE, pursuant to which the Company purchased an additional 26 % of the membership interests of PE for a purchase price of (a) $250,000, plus (b) warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. As a result of this transaction, the Company owned a total of 51% of the membership interests of PE. The Warrants were exercisable for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. The Warrants provided for the purchase of shares of the Company’s Common Stock an exercise price of $1.06 per share. The Warrants were exercisable for cash, or on a cashless basis. The number of shares of Common Stock to be deliverable upon exercise of the Warrants were subject to adjustment for subdivision or consolidation of shares and other standard dilutive event.

 

On September 28, 2018, the Company, consummated a real property purchase and sale transaction (“Setco Property Purchase Transaction”) with Setco International Forwarding Corporation, a Texas corporation (“Setco”), pursuant to which the Company purchased a 16.84 acre tract of land from Setco, located at 13000 S. Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway in Dallas, Texas, for an aggregate purchase price of $11,000,000 , paid as follows:

 

  $1,125,000, by the Company’s execution and delivery of a Real Estate Lien Note made to Setco (the “September 2018 Note”);
     
  $4,875,000, by the Company’s issuance to Setco of 15,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (valued at $0.325 per share); and
     
  $5,000,000, by the Company’s transfer to Setco of the Company’s 51% ownership interest in Payroll Express.

 

On June 4, 2018, the Company entered into a discounted Promissory Note Payable with a principal balance of $500,000, and bearing interest at a rate of 15% per annum. This note was personally guaranteed by Carl Dorvil, the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer and principal shareholder and secured, among other things, certain liens and security interests including the Setco property purchased on September 28, 2019. This note was due to be paid in full by August 1, 2018. The Company had been in negotiations to restructure this loan, as it was originally intended as a bridge loan with a term of 57 days. Pursuant to these negotiations, in August 2018, the maturity date on the note was extended to August 30, 2018. As of December 31, 2018, the Company failed to pay the Principal Amount and, therefore, continued to be in default under the Note. Subsequently on March 5, 2019, the noteholder proceeded to execute its rights to enforce the liens on the Setco property through a foreclosure process which resulted in the noteholder taking possession of the Setco property resulting in the elimination of the $500,000 Civitas note and any accrued interest on the principal amount and the elimination of $1,125,000 Setco real estate lien note made to Setco along with any accrued interests from the Company books and with the elimination of the Setco property assets from the company books.

 

On February 8 2019, GEXM and the G&C Family LLC executed a “Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure” agreement the terms of which would allow GEXM to release ownership of the Arkansas building under AMAST LLC to the G&C Family Group, LLC in return for cancellation of the $1,300,000 real estate lien note secured by the building along with an and all accrued interest payable on the note as of the date of the agreement and the elimination of the AMAST property related assets from the company books.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

Our financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), as well as the applicable regulations and rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). This requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and their accompanying notes. The actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

The accompanying interim, unaudited consolidated financial statements and related financial information should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the related notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2017 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on April 10, 2018. All adjustments necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods have been made. All adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature.

 

  9  
 

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of GEX Management, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries. Intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

There have been no significant changes to our accounting policies that have a material impact on our financial statements and accompanying notes.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents include cash in banks and short-term investments with original maturities of three months or less.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable consists of accrued services and consulting receivables due from customers and are unsecured. The receivables are generally due within 30 to 45 days after the date of the invoice. Accounts receivable is carried at their face amount, less an allowance for doubtful accounts. GEX’s policy is not to charge interest on receivables after the invoice becomes past due. Write-offs are recorded at the time when a customer receivable is deemed uncollectible. No bad debt expense was incurred for the 3 months ended March 31, 2018. No bad debt expense was incurred for the 3 months ended March 31, 2017.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and Equipment, net is carried at the cost of purchase, acquisition or construction, and is depreciated over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Assets acquired in a business combination are stated at estimated fair value. Costs associated with repair and maintenance are expensed as they are incurred. Costs associated with improvements which extend the life, increase the capacity or improve the efficiency of our property and equipment are capitalized and depreciated over the remaining life of the related asset. Depreciation and amortization are provided using the straight-line methods over the useful lives of the assets as follows:

 

  Useful Life
Buildings 30 Years
Office Furniture & Equipment 5 Years

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company records an impairment of long-lived assets used in operations, other than goodwill, and its equity method investments when events or circumstances indicate that the asset might be impaired and the estimated undiscounted cash flows to be generated by those assets over their remaining lives are less than the carrying amount of those items. The net carrying value of assets not recoverable is reduced to fair value, which is typically calculated using the discounted cash flow method.

Revenue Recognition

 

Effective on January 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) . ASU No. 2014-09 outlines a single, comprehensive revenue recognition model for revenue derived from contracts with customers and it supersedes the prior revenue recognition guidance, including prior guidance that is industry-specific. Under ASU No. 2014-09, an entity recognizes revenue for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration for which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company adopted ASU No. 2014-09 using the modified retrospective method, which applies to only the most current period presented in the financial statements. There were no significant changes to the Company’s existing revenue recognition policies as a result of adopting ASU 2014-09.

 

GEX enters into contracts with its clients for professional services, staffing and/or PEO services. GEX’s contract stipulates the rate and price charged to each client. GEX’s contracts for these services are generally cancellable at any time by either party with 30-days’ written notice. GEX fulfills its performance obligations each month, and the contracts generally have a term of one year with an automatic renewal after 12 months. The duration between invoicing and when GEX completes its contractual, performance obligations are satisfied is not significant. For the Company’s PEO services, payment is generally due on the date the invoice is sent to the client. For staffing and professional services payment is generally due 30 days after the invoice is sent to the client. GEX does not have significant financing components or significant payment terms.

 

GEX’s revenue is generally recognized ratably, month-to-month as co-employees or staffed employees perform their service at the client’s worksite. Generally, GEX’s PEO clients are invoiced concurrently with each payroll of its co-employees, and clients that utilize GEX’s staffing and back office services are billed concurrently with each payroll or on a monthly basis.

 

PEO Services

 

Professional Employment Organization (“PEO”) service revenues represent the fees charged to clients for administering payroll and payroll tax transactions for our clients’ Co-Employed Employees (“CEEs”), access to our HR and benefits administration services, consulting related to employment and benefit law compliance and general employment consulting related fees. PEO service revenues are recognized in the period the PEO services are performed as stipulated in the Client Service Agreement (“CSA”), where these fees are fixed or determinable, when the PEO client is invoiced and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

GEX is not considered the primary obligor with respect to CEE’s payroll and payroll tax, and insurance payments and therefore, these payments are not reflected as either revenue or expense in our statements of operations.

 

PEO-related revenues also include revenues generated from insurance administration for our PEO clients. These insurance-related revenues include insurance-related billings, as well as administrative fees that GEX collects from PEO clients and withholds from CEEs for health benefit insurance plans provided by third-party insurance carriers. Insurance-related revenues are recognized over the period the insurance coverage is provided and where collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Sta f fin g Services and Professional Services

 

Staffing services revenue is derived from supplying temporary staff to clients. Temporary staff generally consists of temporary workers working under a contract for a fixed period of time, or on a specific client project. The temporary staff includes both GEX employees and third-parties contracted by GEX.

 

Temporary staff are provided to clients through a Staffing Service Agreement (‘SSA’) involving a specified service that the temporary staff will provide to the client. When GEX is the principal or primary obligor for the temporary staff, GEX records the gross amount of the revenue and expense from the SSA.

 

GEX is generally the primary obligor when GEX is responsible for the fulfillment of services under the SSA, even if the temporary staff are not employees of GEX. This typically occurs when GEX contracts third-parties to fulfill all or part of the SSA with the client, but GEX remains the holder of the credit risk associated with the SSA, and GEX has total discretion in establishing the pricing under the SSA.

 

  11  
 

 

All other Professional Services revenues are recognized in the period the services are performed as stipulated in the client’s Outsourcing Agreement, when the client is invoiced, and collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue recognition for arrangements with multiple deliverables constituting a single unit of accounting is recognized generally over the greater of the term of the arrangement or the expected period of performance.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company uses the liability method in the computation of income tax expense and the current and deferred income taxes payable. A valuation allowance is provided for the amount of deferred tax assets that, based on available evidence, are not expected to be realized.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

ASC Topic 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles, and requires certain disclosures about fair value measurements. In general, fair value of financial instruments is based upon quoted market prices, where available. If such quoted market prices are not available, fair value is based upon internally developed models that primarily use, as inputs, observable market-based parameters. Valuation adjustments may be made to ensure that financial instruments are recorded at fair value. These adjustments may include amounts to reflect counterparty credit quality and the Company’s credit worthiness, among other things, as well as unobservable parameters.

 

Earnings Per Share

 

Earnings per share are calculated in accordance with ASC 260 “Earnings per Share”. Basic income (loss) per share is computed by dividing the period income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing the income (loss) available to common share-holders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus additional common shares that would have been outstanding if dilutive potential common shares had been issued. For purposes of this calculation, common stock dividends, warrants and options to acquire common stock, would be considered common stock equivalents in periods in which they have a dilutive effect and are excluded from this calculation in periods in which these are anti-dilutive to the net loss per share..

 

Earnings per share information for the three months ended March 31, 2019 has been retroactively adjusted to reflect the stock split that occurred in December 2017.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. Such reclassifications have had no effect on the financial position as of December 31, 2018 or operations or cash flows for the periods ended March 31, 2019.

 

Going Concern

 

To date, the Company has funded its operations primarily through public and private offerings of common stock, our line of credit, short- term discounted and convertible notes payable. The Company has identified several potential financing sources in order to raise the capital necessary to fund operations through September 30, 2019.

 

In addition to the aforementioned current sources of capital that will provide additional short-term liquidity, the Company is currently exploring various other alternatives including debt and equity financing vehicles, strategic partnerships, government programs that may be available to the Company, as well as trying to generate additional sales and increase margins. However, at this time the Company has no commitments to obtain any additional funds, and there can be no assurance such funds will be available on acceptable terms or at all. If the Company is unable to obtain additional funding and improve its operations, the Company’s financial condition and results of operations may be materially adversely affected and the Company may not be able to continue operations, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Additionally, even if the Company raises sufficient capital through additional equity or debt financing, strategic alternatives or otherwise, there can be no assurances that the revenue or capital infusion will be sufficient to enable it to develop its business to a level where it will be profitable or generate positive cash flow. If the Company raises additional funds through the issuance of equity or convertible debt securities, the percentage ownership of our stockholders could be significantly diluted, and these newly issued securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing stockholders. If the Company incurs additional debt, a substantial portion of its operating cash flow may be dedicated to the payment of principal and interest on such indebtedness, thus limiting funds available for business activities. The terms of any debt securities issued could also impose significant restrictions on the Company’s operations. Broad market and industry factors may seriously harm the market price of our common stock, regardless of our operating performance, and may adversely impact our ability to raise additional funds. Similarly, if the Company’s common stock is delisted from the public exchange markets, it may limit its ability to raise additional funds.

 

The consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2019 were prepared on the basis of a going concern which contemplates that the Company will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business. Accordingly, they do not give effect to adjustments that would be necessary should the Company be required to liquidate its assets. The ability of the Company to meet its total liabilities as of March 31, 2019, and to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the availability of future funding, continued growth in billings and sales contracts, and the Company’s ability to profitably meet its after-sale service commitments with its existing customers. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

NOTE 9. ACQUISITIONS AND DIVESTITURES

 

On May 2, 2018, the Company purchased a 25% interest in Payroll Express, LLC (PE), a California limited liability company for $500,000 in cash. The Company recognized this investment under the equity method due to its ability to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of PE. Additionally, the Company had the right, but not the obligation, to purchase an additional 26% interest under similar terms. On June 11, 2018, the Company paid $250,000 in cash to the owners of Payroll Express as a deposit towards purchasing additional shares in PE and is recorded in Other Assets on the Balance Sheet.

 

On August 3, 2018, the Company entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement with PE, pursuant to which the Company purchased an additional 26% of the membership interests of PE for a purchase price of (a) $250,000, plus (b) warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. As a result of this transaction, the Company owned a total of 51% of the membership interests of PE. The Warrants were exercisable for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. The Warrants provided for the purchase of shares of the Company’s Common Stock an exercise price of $1.06 per share. The Warrants were exercisable for cash, or on a cashless basis. The number of shares of Common Stock to be deliverable upon exercise of the Warrants were subject to adjustment for subdivision or consolidation of shares and other standard dilutive event.

 

On September 28, 2018, the Company, consummated a real property purchase and sale transaction (“Setco Property Purchase Transaction”) with Setco International Forwarding Corporation, a Texas corporation (“Setco”), pursuant to which the Company purchased a 16.84 acre tract of land from Setco, located at 13000 S. Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway in Dallas, Texas, for an aggregate purchase price of $11,000,000, paid as follows:

 

  $1,125,000, by the Company’s execution and delivery of a Real Estate Lien Note made to Setco (the “September 2018 Note”);
     
  $4,875,000, by the Company’s issuance to Setco of 15,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (valued at $0.325 per share); and
     
  $5,000,000, by the Company’s transfer to Setco of the Company’s 51% ownership interest in Payroll Express.

 

In connection with the Setco Property Purchase Transaction consummated on September 28, 2018, the Company had previously deposited with Setco an earnest money escrow payment of $25,000 (“Escrow Deposit”). At the closing of the Property Purchase Transaction, (a) the Company paid real estate taxes due for the Property of approximately $784, and (b) approximately $7,559 of fees were applied to the Escrow Deposit. As a result, Setco owes the Company approximately $18,225. The September 2018 Note had a principal balance of $1,125,000, and a stated maturity date of October 5, 2018. The Principal Amount of the September 2018 Note bears interest at a rate of 18% per annum (in this case, the “Interest”), which is also payable on the Maturity Date. The Company failed to pay Setco the Principal Amount and accrued and unpaid Interest due under the September 2018 Note on the stated Maturity Date and, therefore, is in default under the September 2018 Note. The Company’s obligations to repay amounts due under the September 2018 Note are secured by the Property, and the Company has executed and delivered the September 2018 Deed of Trust, with Setco as the beneficiary.

 

On June 4, 2018, the Company entered into a discounted Promissory Note Payable with a principal balance of $500,000, and bearing interest at a rate of 15% per annum. This note was personally guaranteed by Carl Dorvil, the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer and principal shareholder and secured, among other things, certain liens and security interests including the Setco property purchased on September 28, 2019. This note was due to be paid in full by August 1, 2018. The Company had been in negotiations to restructure this loan, as it was originally intended as a bridge loan with a term of 57 days. Pursuant to these negotiations, in August 2018, the maturity date on the note was extended to August 30, 2018. As of December 31, 2018, the Company failed to pay the Principal Amount and, therefore, continued to be in default under the Note. Subsequently on March 5, 2019, the noteholder proceeded to execute its rights to enforce the liens on the Setco property through a foreclosure process which resulted in the noteholder taking possession of the Setco property resulting in the elimination of the $500,000 Civitas note and any accrued interest on the principal amount and the elimination of $1,125,000 Setco real estate lien note made to Setco along with any accrued interests from the Company books and with the elimination of the Setco property assets from the company books.

  

While the Company had intended to take advantage of the collateral provided by the Setco real estate to obtain loan against property for working capital purposes as well as reduce high interest loan obligations related to Merchant Cash Advances, the prior management was unable to secure required financing because of (1) challenges associated with identifying an investor who was ready to match the valuation of $11,000,000 provided by the valuation company introduced by Setco for evaluating the property (2) feedback from multiple lending sources related to the lack of readily available access to the property which would further depress the value of the property against the established valuation by the valuation company, and (3) lack of sophisticated investors ready to invest in the land at the valuation provided by the valuation company that would have provided the Company sufficient funds to immediately take care of its short and long term debt obligations. As a result of this assessment and given failure to gain traction on the intended but missed capital opportunity on account of potentially misleading information by a service provider, management is currently reviewing with counsel available options to review and, if required, possibly seek damages from targeted parties to compensate the firm for the damages incurred related to pursuing transaction options related to this potentially incorrect valuation.

 

On February 8 2019, GEXM and the G&C Family LLC executed a “Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure” agreement the terms of which would allow GEXM to release ownership of the Arkansas building under AMAST LLC to the G&C Family Group, LLC in return for cancellation of the $1,300,000 real estate lien note secured by the building along with an and all accrued interest payable on the note as of the date of the agreement and the elimination of the AMAST property related assets from the company books.

ITEM 2 - Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

You should read the following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations in conjunction with our financial statements and the related notes included elsewhere in this report and in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act. Forward-looking statements are often identified by the use of words such as, but not limited to, “anticipate,” “believe,” “can,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “project,” “seek,” “should,” “strategy,” “target,” “will,” “would” and similar expressions or variations intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance, but are based on management’s expectations as of the date of this report and assumptions that are inherently subject to uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements. All information provided in this report is as of the date of this report and the Company undertakes no duty to update this information except as required by law.

 

General

 

GEX Management, Inc., a Texas corporation (the “Company,” “GEX,” “we,” “our,” “us,” and words of similar import) is a Staffing and Professional Services Company that provides services and general business consulting to companies for a variety of their staffing needs. We generate substantially all of our revenue from the staffing and other professional services we offer. These professional services, in addition to staffing, include: Strategy and technology consulting, accounting and bookkeeping, human resources and business consultation and optimization.

 

Results of Operations

 

The three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018

 

Revenue

 

Our revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $95,402 compared to $3,578,575 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. This drastic fall in revenue, was primarily due to termination of contracts with two customers who accounted for over 83% of the Company’s net staffing revenue, resulting in significant loss of revenue to the company in Q4 2018 and Q1 2019. The termination of these and other contracts was attributable to the increased business risk associated with Merchant Cash Advance contracts requiring attachment of future receivables of customer receipts with the MCA institutions as well as a result of management decision to move away from low margin, high cost contracts which were deemed detrimental to the company’s sustained operability and profitability in the long run.

 

Operating Expense

 

Total operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $79.492 compared to the operating cost for the three months ended March 31, 2019 of $309,433. This reduction in operating expenses was primarily due to the cost rationalization initiatives by the current management.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company has identified several potential financing sources in order to raise the capital necessary to fund operations through September 30, 2019. Management believes that it has been historically difficult for minority and women owned businesses to get access to reasonably price capital at scale which creates an opportunity to invest into these companies and receive a greater than average return for our shareholders. That said, being a minority owned business ourselves it comes at no surprise to management that we are having difficulty accessing reasonably priced capital. However, the opportunity to make a significant return for our investors was so overwhelmingly compelling that management had in the past taken short term working capital loans against future receivables in order to timely fund the growth of the company. However, because of the highly irregular and unregulated nature of the Merchant Cash Advance industry which also resulted in significant harm to the company’s revenue stream and client contract relationships, current management has taken the decision to move away from these cash advance opportunities introduced by the prior finance teams and will, going forward, primarily rely on more traditional and regulated sources of financing available within the investment and regulated capital markets. As an alternative to MCA financing, the Company is currently exploring various other alternatives including debt and equity financing vehicles, strategic partnerships, government programs that may be available to the Company, as well as trying to generate additional sales and increase margins. However, at this time the Company has no commitments to obtain any additional funds, and there can be no assurance such funds will be available on acceptable terms or at all. If the Company is unable to obtain additional funding, the Company’s financial condition and results of operations may be materially adversely affected and the Company may not be able to continue operations.

 

Additionally, even if the Company raises sufficient capital through additional equity or debt financing, strategic alternatives or otherwise, there can be no assurances that the revenue or capital infusion will be sufficient to enable it to develop its business to a level where it will be profitable or generate positive cash flow. If the Company raises additional funds through the issuance of equity or convertible debt securities, the percentage ownership of our stockholders could be significantly diluted, and these newly issued securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing stockholders. If the Company incurs additional debt, a substantial portion of its operating cash flow may be dedicated to the payment of principal and interest on such indebtedness, thus limiting funds available for business activities. The terms of any debt securities issued could also impose significant restrictions on the Company’s operations. Broad market and industry factors may seriously harm the market price of our common stock, regardless of our operating performance, and may adversely impact our ability to raise additional funds. Similarly, if the Company’s common stock is delisted from the public exchange markets, it may limit its ability to raise additional funds.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have not entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements and have not formed any special purpose entities. We have not guaranteed any debt or commitments of other entities or entered into any options on non-financial assets.

 

Contractual Obligations

 

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

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

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

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rules 13a-15 (e) or 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed under the Exchange Act, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Interim Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure and to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Our management, under the supervision and with the participation of our Interim Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Based upon this assessment, we determined that as of the end of period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective because there exist material weaknesses affecting our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Other than the material weaknesses as described above, there has been no other changes in our internal control procedures over financial reporting (except as described in the previous section) identified in connection with the evaluation we conducted of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2018, that occurred during our first quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

We have not been served with any lawsuit or received official notice on legal proceedings to which we are a party or of which any of our property is the subject nor are we subject to any material proceedings that are contemplated by any governmental authority at this time.

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

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

 

ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS

 

Not applicable

 

ITEM 3. DEFAULTS UPON SENIOR SECURITIES

 

In connection with the Merchant Cash Advances, the company has occasionally defaulted on making certain daily interest payments as a result of lack of immediate access to capital to fulfill short term payment obligations related to these debt like instruments. As a result of these defaults in timely payments, Confession of Judgements have been filed by some of these MCAs in the New York district courts and GEXM is currently in the process of negotiating settlement terms on monies owed to these parties.

 

As a result of the highly irregular and unregulated nature of the Merchant Cash Advance industry, current management has taken the decision to move away from these cash advance opportunities introduced by the prior finance teams and will, going forward, solely rely on more traditional and regulated sources of financing available within the investment and regulated capital markets. Additionally, current management has determined it to be necessary to cease active business discussions with MCAs and proceed with settlement discussions to reduce or eliminate the monies owed to the MCAs and related parties in a timely manner. The potential inability of the Company to satisfy these MCA obligations in a timely manner could result in a significant impact on the financial and operational health of the company which could also potentially result in the company pursuing Chapter 11 bankruptcy and /or similar legal avenues if it is not able to settle these outstanding MCA obligations in a timely manner. While the management team has already begun these settlement conversations and is hopeful of reaching a resolution in a timely manner, there can be no guarantee that such a settlement will be reached any time soon.

 

On account of the management decision to cease business discussion with most MCA groups and because of the lack of regulatory oversight in the MCA industry’s record keeping practices which could result in wrong or misleading data for balance confirmation or audit purposes , the management has relied solely on bank statement records and prior management inputs in determining the balance outstanding with MCAs as presented in the financial statements and believe this to be accurate to best of their knowledge based on internally available information .

 

As of March 31, 2019, the Company has defaulted on the lease payable for the corporate offices located in 12001, N Central Expressway, Suite #825. Dallas TX 75243 for the months of January, February and March 2019. While at present the Company still retains the lease at this corporate office with lease payments and related penalties due to be paid to restore full access to corporate personnel, the Company is currently negotiating the lease renewal terms and is expected to reach a lease settlement agreement shortly with the landlords.
