NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2020 AND 2019

 

NOTE 1 –ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Grapefruit USA, Inc (“we”, “our”, “us”, “GBI”, “Grapefruit”, or “the Company”) was formed as a California corporation on August 28, 2017 and began operating in September 2017.

 

On July 10, 2019, Grapefruit closed the Share Exchange after the completion of all conditions subsequent contemplated by the Share Exchange Agreement among the parties thereto ( “SEA”), by which Imaging3, Inc. (“IGNG”) was acquired in a reverse acquisition (the “Acquisition”) by the former shareholders of Grapefruit, the accounting acquirer. Under the terms of the SEA executed on May 31, 2019, IGNG became obligated to issue to Grapefruit’s existing shareholders that number of newly issued restricted IGNG common shares such that the former Grapefruit shareholders (now new IGNG shareholders) will own approximately 81% of the post-Acquisition IGNG common shares and the current IGNG shareholders will retain 19% of the post-Acquisition IGNG common shares. At the time of the execution of the SEA, IGNG had approximately 85,218,249 outstanding shares of common stock. Therefore, IGNG issued to Grapefruit’s shareholders 362,979,114 IGNG common shares to Grapefruit’s current shareholder on a pro rata basis with their then-current ownership of Grapefruit of which Bradley Yourist and Daniel J. Yourist own a combined 72.26%, or approximately 259,967,136 shares. Accordingly, the financial statements are prepared using the acquisition method of accounting with GBI as the accounting acquirer and IGNG treated as the legal acquirer and accounting acquiree. Because Imaging3, Inc. did not meet the accounting definition of an operating business, having only nominal assets, the reverse merger transaction was treated as a recapitalization and no goodwill was recognized.

 

The Company has applied for and received our Distribution renewal licensure which allows us to operate through May 13, 2021. Our provisional Manufacturing license must be renewed prior to June 14, 2020. The California Department of Health, Manufactured Cannabis Division has advised us that we will receive our manufacturing license renewal application no earlier than sixty (60) days prior to our current license’s expiration date. Grapefruit anticipates no issues with its renewal application and expects to receive it prior to June 2020. Grapefruit has not yet applied for a license to cultivate and will not until construction has begun on our cultivation facility. We own two acres of fully entitled cannabis real property located in the Coachillin’ Industrial Cultivation and Ancillary Canna-Business Park. The location within Coachillin’ allows the Company to apply for and hold every cannabis license available under the California Cannabis laws.

 

We intend on building out the real property into a distribution, manufacturing and high-tech cultivation facility to further its goal to become a seed to sale, fully vertically integrated Cannabis and CBD product Company. Grapefruit’s plans include an indoor 22,000 square foot multi-tiered canopy and adjoining tissue culture rooms.

 

We became members of the Indian Canyon and 18th Property Association on September 19, 2017 and have an ownership interest of 1.46% based upon the 77,156 gross parcel square foot of our property located in an approximately 5.3 million square foot facility. As of March 31, 2020, the common areas continue to be built throughout the entire canna-business park and are not complete.

 

NOTE 2 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”).

 

The audited financial statements as of December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, and for the year ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information on the same basis as the annual financial statements and in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods shown. The results of operations for such periods are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for a full year or for any future period. They do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. Therefore, these financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and notes filed with the SEC for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Use of Estimates – The preparation of our financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires us to make estimates, assumptions and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of our financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented.

 

We make our estimate of the ultimate outcome for these items based on historical trends and other information available when our financial statements are prepared. We recognize changes in estimates in accordance with the accounting rules for the estimate, which is typically in the period when new information becomes available. We believe that our significant estimates, assumptions and judgments are reasonable, based upon information available at the time they were made. Our actual results could differ from these estimates, making it possible that a change in these estimates could occur in the near term. The company’s most significant estimates related to useful life for depreciation, the value of long-lived assets and related impairment, and provision for income taxes of property and equipment.

 

Inventory – Inventory is comprised of raw material, work in process and finished goods. The raw material ending balance as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was zero. Work in process ending balance as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was zero. The cost of finished goods is recorded at lower of cost or market. Finished goods ending balance as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was $252,756 and $263,985, respectively.

 

We periodically review the value of our inventory and provide a write-down of inventory based on our assessment of the market conditions. Any write-down is charged to cost of revenues.

 

7
 

 

Property, Plant and Equipment, net – Our property and equipment are recorded at cost. Assets held under capital leases are capitalized at the commencement of the lease at the lower of the present value of minimum lease payments at the inception of the lease or fair value. Maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over estimated useful lives of four to seven years, and amortization is computed using the straight-line method over the life of the applicable lease. At the time of retirement or other disposition of property and equipment, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from our accounts and any resulting gain or loss is reflected in our consolidated statements of operations.

 

Land Improvements – Our land improvements are recorded at cost provided by our property association. These costs will continue to be capitalized until construction has been completed. Land improvements will not be depreciated after the construction has been completed by the property association.

 

Long-Lived Assets Impairment Assessment – Our long-lived assets are subject to an impairment test if there is an indicator of impairment. The carrying value and ultimate realization of these assets is dependent upon our estimates of future earnings and benefits that we expect to generate from their use. If our expectations of future results and cash flows are significantly diminished, other long-lived assets may be impaired and the resulting charge to operations may be material. When we determine that the carrying value of intangibles or other long-lived assets may not be recoverable based upon the existence of one or more indicators of impairment, we use the projected undiscounted cash flow method or realizable value to determine whether an impairment exists, and then measure the impairment using discounted cash flows.

 

Revenue Recognition – The Company derives revenues from the sale of product in accordance to ASC Topic 606. Revenues are recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to the customer in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for transferring those goods or services.

 

Revenue is recognized based on the following five step model:

 

  - Identification of the contract with a customer
  - Identification of the performance obligations in the contract
  - Determination of the transaction price
  - Allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract
  - Recognition of revenue when, or as, the Company satisfies a performance obligation

 

Performance Obligations

 

Sales of products are recognized when all the following criteria are satisfied: (i) a contract with an end user exists which has commercial substance; (ii) it is probable the Company will collect the amount charged to the end user; and (iii) the Company has completed its performance obligation whereby the end user has obtained control of the product. A contract with commercial substance exists once the Company receives and accepts a purchase order or once it enters into a contract with an end user. If collectability is not probable, the sale is deferred and not recognized until collection is probable or payment is received. Control of products typically transfers when title and risk of ownership of the product has transferred to the customer. For contracts with multiple performance obligations, the Company allocates the total transaction price to each performance obligation in an amount based on the estimated relative standalone selling prices of the promised goods or services underlying each performance obligation. The Company uses an observable price to determine the stand-alone selling price for separate performance obligations or a cost-plus margin approach when one is not available. Historically the Company’s contracts have not had multiple performance obligations. The large majority of the Company’s performance obligations are recognized at a point in time related to the sale of products.

 

Cost of Goods Sold – Our cost of goods sold includes the costs directly attributable to revenue recognized and includes expenses related to the production, packaging and labeling of cannabis products; personnel-related costs, fees for third-party services, such as testing and transportation costs related to our distribution services.

Basic and Diluted Net Income Per Share – Basic net income per share is based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted net income per share assumes that all dilutive convertible shares and stock options were converted or exercised. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, options and warrants are assumed to be exercised at the beginning of the period (or at the time of issuance, if later), and as if funds obtained thereby were used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. During 2018, potentially dilutive securities were excluded from the computation of weighted average shares outstanding-diluted because their effect was anti-dilutive.

Derivative Financial Instruments - The Company generally does not use derivative financial instruments to hedge exposures to cash-flow risks or market-risks that may affect the fair values of its financial instruments. The Company utilizes various types of financing to fund its business needs, including convertible notes and warrants and other instruments not indexed to our stock. The Company is required to record its derivative instruments at their fair value. Changes in the fair value of derivatives are recognized in earnings in accordance with ASC 815. The Company’s only asset or liability measured at fair value on a recurring basis is its derivative liability associated with warrants to purchase common stock and convertible notes.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments – We value our financial assets and liabilities using fair value measurements. Fair value is based on the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Assets and liabilities measured at fair value are categorized based on whether the inputs are observable in the market and the degree that the inputs are observable. The categorization of financial instruments within the valuation hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The hierarchy is prioritized into three levels (with Level 3 being the lowest) defined as follows:

 

Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the entity has the ability to access.

 

Level 2: Observable inputs other than prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated with observable market data.

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets and liabilities. This includes certain pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, and similar techniques that use significant unobservable inputs.

 

The carrying amount of our cash and cash equivalents approximates fair value because of the short-term nature of the instruments. The carrying amount of our notes payable at March 31, 2020, approximates their fair values based on comparable borrowing rates available to the company. The Company evaluated the fair market value of LVCA using Level 3 inputs. From that measurement, the Company recorded an impairment of LVCA.

 

There have been no changes in Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 categorizations and no changes in valuation techniques for these assets or liabilities for March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

Income Taxes – Income tax assets and liabilities are recorded using the asset and liability method. Under the asset and liability method, tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the tax consequences attributable to differences between financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases as well as net operating loss and tax credit carryovers. Future tax assets and liabilities are measured using the enacted tax rates expected to apply when the asset is realized, or the liability settled. The effect on future tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that enactment occurs. To the extent that we do not consider it more likely than not that a future tax asset will be recovered, we will provide a valuation allowance against the excess.

 

We follow the provisions of ASC 740, Income Taxes. Because of ASC 740, we make a comprehensive review of our portfolio of tax positions in accordance with recognition standards established by ASC 740.

 

When tax returns are filed, it is highly certain that some positions taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities, while others are subject to uncertainty about the merits of the position taken or the amount of the position that would be ultimately sustained. The benefit of a tax position is recognized in our consolidated financial statements in the period during which, based on all available evidence, we believe it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including the resolution of appeals or litigation processes, if any. Tax positions taken are not offset or aggregated with other positions. Tax positions that meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold are measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that is more than 50 percent likely of being realized upon settlement with the applicable taxing authority. The portion of the benefits associated with tax positions taken that exceeds the amount measured as described above is reflected as a liability for unrecognized tax benefits in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets along with any associated interest and penalties that would be payable to the taxing authorities upon examination.

 

We have created our tax provision leveraging known tax court cases involving various marijuana dispensaries and other cannabis related businesses, including the section of the IRS Tax code of 280E. The U.S. Tax Code Section 280E is the federal statute that states that a business engaging in the trafficking of a Schedule I or II controlled substance, which includes cannabis and cannabis related products, are barred from taking the tax deductions or credits in their federal tax returns which are not considered as part of the business’ cost of goods sold. Given the guidance offered by the Tax code 280E we have prepared our tax provision according to this tax code.

 

Interest and penalties associated with unrecognized tax benefits, if any, are classified as interest expense and penalties and are included in selling, general and administrative expenses in our consolidated statements of operations.

 

On December 22, 2017, the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was enacted. U.S. tax reform introduced many changes, including lowering the U.S. corporate tax rate to 21 percent, changes in incentives, provisions to prevent U.S. base erosion and significant changes in the taxation of international income, including provisions which allow for the repatriation of foreign earnings without U.S. tax. The enactment of U.S. tax reform had no significant impact on our income taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and the year ended December 31, 2019, respectively.

 

Research and Development Expenses – Research and development (“R&D”) costs are charged to expense as incurred. Our R&D expenses include, but are not limited to, consulting service fees and materials and supplies used in the development of our proprietary products and services.

 

General and Administrative Expenses – General and administrative expenses consist primarily of personnel-related costs, fees for professional and consulting services, travel costs, rent, bad debt expense, general corporate costs, and other costs of administration such as human resources, finance and administrative roles.

 

Commitments and Contingencies – Certain conditions may exist as of the date our financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss, but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. We assess such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against us or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, we evaluate the perceived merits of the legal proceedings or unasserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought.

 

10
 

 

If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, the estimated liability would be accrued in our consolidated financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potentially material loss contingency is not probable, but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability, together with an estimate of the range of possible loss if determinable and material, would be disclosed.

 

Loss contingencies considered remote are generally not disclosed unless they involve guarantees, in which case the nature of the guarantee would be disclosed.

 

Net Loss Per Share – We compute net loss per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings per Share. Under the provisions of ASC 260, basic net loss per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing the net loss available to common stockholders for the period by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share takes into consideration shares of common stock outstanding (computed under basic net loss per share) and potentially dilutive securities that are not anti-dilutive.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents – The Company considers all highly liquid investment securities with remaining maturities at the date of purchase of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents may be invested in money market funds, certificates of deposit or other interest-bearing accounts.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk – Financial instruments that potentially subject us to credit risk consist of cash. We maintain our cash with high credit quality financial institutions; at times, such balances with any one financial institution may not be insured by the FDIC.

 

Accounts Receivable and Revenue – The accounts receivable balance was $95,818 as of March 31, 2020 and $0 as for December 31, 2019. In the first quarter of 2020, 99% of the net revenues generated with one customer. In 2019, 70% of net revenues generated with one customer.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements – From time to time, the FASB or other standards setting bodies issue new accounting pronouncements. Updates to the FASB ASCs are communicated through issuance of an Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”). Unless otherwise discussed, we believe that the impact of recently issued guidance, whether adopted or to be adopted in the future, is not expected to have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement” (“ASU 2018-13”). ASU 2018-13 removes, modifies and adds certain disclosure requirements in Topic 820 “Fair Value Measurement”. ASU 2018-13 eliminates certain disclosures related to transfers and the valuations process, modifies disclosures for investments that are valued based on net asset value, clarifies the measurement uncertainty disclosure, and requires additional disclosures for Level 3 fair value measurements. ASU 2018-13 is effective for the Company for annual and interim reporting periods beginning July 1, 2020. The Company is currently evaluating the impact ASU 2018-13 will have on its financial statements.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Adopted

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which supersedes existing guidance on accounting for leases in “Leases (Topic 840)” and generally requires all leases to be recognized in the consolidated balance sheet. ASU 2016-02 is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018; early adoption is permitted. The provisions of ASU 2016-02 are to be applied using a modified retrospective approach.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. This ASU affects entities that issue share-based payment awards to their employees. The ASU is designed to simplify several aspects of accounting for share-based payment award transactions which include – the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, classification on the statement of cash flows and forfeiture rate calculations. ASU 2016-09 became effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2018.

 

11
 

 

In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) — Deferral of the Effective Date (ASU 2015-14), which defers the effective date of ASU 2014-09 for one year and permits early adoption as early as the original effective date of ASU 2014-09. The new revenue standard may be applied retrospectively to each prior period presented or retrospectively with the cumulative effect recognized as of the date of adoption. In 2016, the FASB issued additional guidance to clarify the implementation guidance (ASU 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations; ASU 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing; and ASU 2016-12, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients). ASU 2015-14 became effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2018 and had no impact on the financial statements.

 

NOTE 3 – GOING CONCERN

 

Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes we will be able to realize our assets and discharge our liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we incurred a net loss of $2,772,723, had a working capital deficit of $6,440,882 and had an accumulated deficit of $10,037,221 at March 31, 2020. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate profitable operations in the future and, or, obtaining the necessary financing to meet our obligations and repay our liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. There is no assurance that these events will be satisfactorily completed. As a result, there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern for one year from the issuance date of these financial statements.

 

Management’s plan regarding this matter is to, amongst other things, seek additional equity financing by selling our equity securities and obtaining funds through the issuance of debt. We cannot assure you that funds from these sources will be available when needed or, if available, will be on terms favorable to us or to our stockholders. If we raise additional funds or settle liabilities by issuing equity securities, the percentage ownership of our stockholders will be reduced, stockholders may experience additional dilution, or such equity securities may provide for rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of the holders of our common stock. Our ability to execute our business plan and continue as a going concern may be adversely affected if we are unable to raise additional capital or operate profitably.

 

On July 10, 2019, Grapefruit USA, Inc. and Imaging3, Inc. (“IGNG”) closed a Share Exchange after the completion of all conditions subsequent contemplated by the Share Exchange Agreement among the parties thereto (the “SEA”), by which IGNG was acquired in a reverse acquisition (the “Acquisition”) by the former shareholders of Grapefruit Boulevard Investments, Inc (“Grapefruit). Under the terms of the SEA executed on May 31, 2019 IGNG became obligated to issue to Grapefruit’s existing shareholders that number of newly issued restricted IGNG common shares such that the former Grapefruit shareholders (now new IGNG shareholders) own approximately 81% of the post-Acquisition IGNG common shares and the current IGNG shareholders retain approximately 19% of the post-Acquisition IGNG common shares.

 

In connection with and dependent upon the successful consummation of the above transaction, on May 31, 2019, the Company executed a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”), with Auctus Fund, LLC of Boston MA (the “Investor”) pursuant to the terms of which IGNG agreed to sell $4,000,000 of Convertible Notes (the “Notes”) and issue $6,200,000 of callable warrants (“the Warrants”) to the Investor. Pursuant to the SPA, Auctus became obligated to purchase the $4,000,000 of Notes from IGNG in four tranches as follows: $600,000 at the SPA closing, which was funded on June 6, 2019; the second tranche of $1,422,750 on the day IGNG filed the registration statement, which was funded on August 16, 2019; the third tranche of $1 million will be funded the day the SEC declares the registration statement effective and the fourth tranche of $1 million will be funded 90 days after effectiveness. As of March 31, 2020, the first and second tranches of this financing were completed and along with advances on the third tranche of $530,000, the Company has received gross proceeds of $2,552,750.

 

NOTE 4 – RIGHT OF USE ASSET AND LIABILITY

 

During 2018 we reviewed various facilities and identified a suitable, compliant cannabis facility located in the city of Dessert Hot Springs, to build our manufacturing and distribution facility. This commercial park is owned and operated by Coachillin’ Holding LLC and we purchased land rights from Coachillin’ Holding LLC on December 21, 2017 to secure our specific location within their commercial park.

 

12
 

 

Construction of our facility has not been completed, and we have been provided an estimated completion date of September 2022. In order for us to obtain California cannabis licensing from state and local officials we entered into an operating lease with Coachillin’ Holdings to temporarily occupy an area near the location of our permanent location within the Coachillin’ commercial park.

 

We entered into this operating land lease agreement with Coachillin’ Holdings LLC on September 1, 2018 to rent approximately 2,268 square feet of leasable land area. The operating lease renews annually and has a base rent of $0.50 square foot of leasable area of the designated premise assigned by Coachillin’ Holdings LLC. We paid an initial non-refundable prepaid rent of $3,402 which was expensed during the three months following the signed agreement, and we will continue to pay $1,134 monthly. We entered into this operating agreement in order to obtain our provisional cannabis licenses for manufacturing and distribution during 2020.

 

The Company entered into a 36-month lease agreement for office space in July 2019 at $6,963 a month, with an approximate 2% increase annually.

 

The Company utilizes the incremental borrowing rate in determining the present value of lease payments unless the implicit rate is readily determinable. The Company used an estimated incremental borrowing rate of 6% to estimate the present value of the right of use liability.

 

The Company has right-of-use assets of $198,442, right-of-use liability of $200,362 as of March 31, 2020. Operating lease expense for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $24,291.

In October 2017, in connection with our purchase of two acres of fully entitled cannabis real property located in the Coachillin’ Industrial Cultivation and Ancillary Canna-Business Park, the Company issued a first and second trust deed note in the amounts of $700,000 and $200,000, respectively. The first and second trust deed notes are long-term notes and are interest only notes, at 13.0%, and mature in August 2022, with the principal payment due at maturity. For the $700,000 loan, the monthly payment is approximately $7,500. For the $200,000 loan, the monthly payment is approximately $2,200. The 1st and 2nd trust deeds are secured by the land as well as property owned by two officers of the company and three other related parties.

Grapefruit acquired warrants to issue common stock upon exercise in its acquisition of Imaging3, Inc. on July 10, 2019. (See Note 15.) As part of the SEA, the Company also issued 16,000,000 warrants to purchase 16,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.125 per share, 15,000,000 warrants to purchase 15,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.15 per share, 8,000,000 warrants to purchase 8,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.25 per share for a period of two year from the date of issuance.

The Warrants are “cash only” and are callable if IGNG stock trades on the OTCQB at 200% or more of a given exercise price for 5 consecutive days.

 

NOTE 14 — DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

Grapefruit acquired derivative instruments in its acquisition of Imaging3, Inc. on July 10, 2019. (See Note 15.) The Company’s only asset or liability measured at fair value on a recurring basis was its derivative liability associated with related warrants to purchase common stock and the conversion features embedded in convertible promissory notes.

 

In connection with financing transactions, the Company issued warrants to purchase common stock and convertible promissory notes. These instruments included provisions that could result in a reduced exercise price based on specified full-ratchet anti-dilution provisions. The “reset” provisions were triggered in the event the Company subsequently issued common stock, stock warrants, stock options or convertible debt with a stock price, exercise price or conversion price lower than contractually specified amounts. Upon triggering the “reset” provisions, the exercise / conversion price of the instrument will be reduced. Accordingly, pursuant to ASC 815, these instruments were not considered to be solely indexed to the Company’s own stock and were not afforded equity treatment.

 

17
 

 

The following table summarizes activity in the Company’s derivative liability during the three-month period ended March 31, 2020:

 

12-31-19 Balance   $ 1,433,597  
Creation/acquisition     225,755  
Reclassification of equity     -  
Change in Value     2,110,718  
3-31-20 Balance   $ 3,770,070  

 

The Company classifies the fair value of these derivative liabilities under level 3 of the fair value hierarchy of financial instruments. The fair value of the derivative liability was calculated using a Black Scholes model. The Company’s stock price and estimates of volatility are the most sensitive inputs in validation of assets and liabilities at fair value. The liabilities were measured using the following assumptions:

 

Term   0.01 years -5.0 years    
Dividend Yield     0 %  
Risk-free rate     0.15% - 2.49 %  
Volatility     65-168 %  

 

NOTE 15 – INVESTMENTS

 

Acquisition of Lake Victoria Mining Company

 

In December 2018, we purchased a public shell company, Lake Victoria Mining Company. (“LVCA”), for $150,000 cash and $30,300, which included a noncontrolling interest of $15,085 for a total investment amount of $195,385, through which we originally intended to effectuate becoming a public company through a reverse merger transaction. We accounted for the purchase as an asset acquisition whereby the total investment amount was recorded as an intangible asset. In early 2019 however, we determined that LVCA was not a suitable entity through which we could accomplish our objective. Accordingly, we recorded a permanent impairment charge related to the intangible asset in the amount of $195,385, leaving a net realizable value of $0 as of December 31, 2019.

 

In July 2019, we sold our investment in LVCA to an entity owned by the CEO and COO of the Company for $1,000 and the assumption of $24,553 of liabilities resulting in a net gain of $25,553.

 

Investment in Hemp

 

In September 2019, the Company invested in hemp product that was purchased and stored by a third party. The Company expects to see the product by the third quarter of 2020.

 

NOTE 16 – CONCENTRATION

 

Customers

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, our Company earned net revenues of $393,559 and $335,608, respectively.

One customer accounted for over 90% of the Company’s total revenues for the period ended March 31, 2020 and a different customer accounted for over 90% of the Company’s total revenue for the period ended March 31, 2019.

 

Suppliers

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, we purchased products for sale from a limited number of suppliers located in California. A substantial portion of the Company’s inventory was purchased from two suppliers. The two suppliers accounted for over 90% of the Company’s total inventory purchase for both of the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.

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

 

Cautionary Statements

 

This Form 10-Q contains financial projections and other “forward-looking statements,” as that term is used in federal securities laws, about Grapefruit’s financial condition, results of operations and business. These statements include, among others, statements concerning the potential for revenues and expenses and other matters that are not historical facts. These statements may be made expressly in this Form 10-K. You can find many of these statements by looking for words such as “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” or similar expressions used in this Form 10-K. These forward-looking statements are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties that may cause our actual results to be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by us in those statements. The most important facts that could prevent us from achieving our stated goals include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

  (a) volatility or decline of our stock price;
     
  (b) potential fluctuation in quarterly results;
     
  (c) our failure to earn revenues or profits;
     
  (d) inadequate capital to continue the business and barriers to raising the additional capital or to obtaining the financing needed to implement our business plans;
     
  (e) failure to make sales;
     
  (f) changes in demand for our products and services;
     
  (g) rapid and significant changes in markets;
     
  (h) litigation with or legal claims and allegations by outside parties, causing us to incur substantial losses and expenses;
     
  (i) insufficient revenues to cover operating costs;
     
  (j) dilution in the ownership of the Company through the issuance by us of additional securities and the conversion of outstanding warrants, notes and other securities;

 

We cannot assure that we will be profitable. We may not be able to develop, manage or market our products and services successfully. We may not be able to attract or retain qualified executives and technology personnel. We may not be able to obtain customers for our products or services. Our products and services may become obsolete. Government regulation may hinder our business. Additional dilution in outstanding stock ownership will be incurred due to the issuance or exercise of more shares, warrants and other convertible securities.

 

Because the statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. We caution you not to place undue reliance on the statements, which speak only as of the date of this Form 10-Q. The cautionary statements contained or referred to in this section should be considered in connection with any subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements that we or persons acting on our behalf may make. We do not undertake any obligation to review or confirm analysts’ expectations or estimates or to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Form 10-Q or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and notes to those statements. In addition to historical information, the following discussion and other parts of this annual report contain forward-looking information that involves risks and uncertainties.

 

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2019.

 

The following sets forth selected items from our statements of operations for three months ended March 31, 2020 and for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

 

    Three Months Ended
March 31, 2020
    Three Months Ended
March 31, 2019
 
Net revenues   $ 393,559     $ 328,696  
Cost of goods sold     454,987       316,636  
Gross Profit     (61,428 )     12,060  
General and administrative expense     302,559       40,535  
Income (loss) from operations     (363,987 )     (28,475 )
Change in value of derivatives     (2,110,718 )     -  
Other income (expenses)     (298,018 )     (205,719 )
Provision for income taxes     -       -  
Net (loss) income   $ (2,772,723 )   $ (234,194 )

 

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $393,559 compared to $328,696 for the corresponding period in 2019, an increase of 17%. The increase reflects the refocused efforts of the company on its core operations subsequent to its completed efforts to effectuate the reverse merger into a public company during the fourth quarter of 2019. We expect that revenues will continue to significantly increase quarter over quarter throughout 2020.

 

Cost of goods sold for the three months ended March 31, 2020 were $454,987 as compared to $316,636 for the corresponding period in 2019, an increase of 44%. The increase was primarily due to manufacturing overhead costs associated with a fully operational facility in Coachillin’, which was not completely put in place until the second quarter of 2019.

 

Our resulting gross (loss) profit for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 were $(61,428) and $12,060, respectively,

 

Our general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $302,559 compared to $40,535 for the corresponding period in 2019. The increase in costs include $194,459 for legal, audit, accounting, and investor relations expenses, as well as $54,475 in salaries and wages.

 

Our resulting net loss from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 were $363,987 and $28,475, respectively.

 

The Company acquired derivative liabilities with the Share Exchange on July 10, 2019. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we recorded a change in the value of derivatives of $(2,110,718). There were no derivatives held by the Company during the three months ended March 31, 2019; hence, there was $0 of related expense during that period.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our cash position decreased to $134,933 as of March 31, 2020 from $266,607 as of December 31, 2019. The decrease in cash was primarily due to the payments for operating expenses. Our total current assets decreased to $490,967 as of March 31, 2020, from $543,051 as of December 31, 2019. Included in current assets as of March 31, 2020 is $252,756 of finished goods inventory which we expect to turn over within the next two quarters.

 

Our total current liabilities increased to $6,931,849 as of March 31, 2020 from $5,115,438 as of December 31, 2019. This increase is primarily due to the change of value of the derivative liability.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we used $353,323 of net cash for operating activities, as compared $48,415 used during the three months ended March 31, 2019. Net cash used in investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $0, as compared to $47,088 during the three months ended March 31, 2019. Net cash provided by financing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $221,649 as compared to $128,909 during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

 

We expect our working capital requirements in the next twelve months to be met primarily by the proceeds of issuance of debt, convertible instruments and other securities to our existing creditor, shareholders, and other investors, as well as from cash flow from operations. We expect to need additional working capital from outside sources to cover our anticipated operating expenses. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to raise sufficient additional capital or financing to continue in business or to effectively execute its business plan.

 

Going Concern Qualification

 

Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes we will be able to realize our assets and discharge our liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we incurred a net loss of $2,772,723, had a working capital deficit of $6,440,882 and had an accumulated deficit of $10,037,221 at March 31, 2020. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate profitable operations in the future and, or, obtaining the necessary financing to meet our obligations and repay our liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. There is no assurance that these events will be satisfactorily completed. As a result, there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern for one year from the issuance date of these financial statements.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

None.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Our management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2020. In making this assessment, our management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) in Internal Control-Integrated (2013Framework). A material weakness 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. We have identified the following material weakness:

 

1. As of March 31, 2020, we did not maintain adequate segregation of duties. Accordingly, management has determined that this control deficiently constitutes a material weakness.

 

21
 

 

Because of this material weakness, management has concluded that we did not maintain effective internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2020, based on the criteria established in “Internal Control-Integrated Framework” issued by the COSO.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting through the date of this report or during the quarter ended March 31, 2020, that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

This report does not include an attestation report from our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

Alpha Capital Anstalt and Brio Capital Master Fund, LTD

 

On September 13, 2017, Alpha Capital Anstalt and Brio Capital Master Fund, LTD, two minority members of a group of investors in the Company (the “Plaintiff”) filed a lawsuit seeking damages and injunctive relief in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York claiming that the Company breached certain Note and Warrant agreements among the parties to the action. The holders of the majority of the investment involved in the above lawsuit chose not to join in the lawsuit and have informed the Company that they believe the lawsuit to be baseless. On November 21, 2017, the Court denied the Plaintiff’s request for injunctive relief against the Company. As a result, the case essentially became an action for money damages against the Company, which the Company believed to be without merit and defended vigorously. However, on July 27, 2018 United States District Court for the Southern District of New York granted the plaintiffs motion for summary judgement, awarding them approximately $1.4 million dollars. On April 15, 2019 the Company executed a settlement agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) with the defendants to settle the matter by agreeing to pay the defendants an aggregate of $200,000 and issuing them an aggregate of 7,705,698 of the Company’s common shares (subject to certain possible adjustments to the amount of shares to be issued to the Defendants by the Company). The Company paid this $200,000 to the defendants and issued the 7,705,698 shares to the defendants in the fourth quarter of 2019. Subsequently, the defendant’s claimed the aforementioned share adjustment had been triggered and made a demand that the Company issue additional shares pursuant to the terms of the Settlement. In March 2020, the Company agreed to issue an additional aggregate of 2,822,654 shares the Company’s stock to these defendants in final settlement of the dispute. This share issuance is currently awaiting court approval.

 

Administrative Claim of Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger LLP

 

The Company came to a settlement agreement with Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger LLP (“Greenberg”). Three $68,000 payments are to be made in relation to the timing of the three latter tranches mentioned in “Auctus Financing” or before November 30, 2019. As of now, $68,000 has been paid; late penalties are currently being assessed. In addition, 7,628,567 shares are to be issued as part of the settlement agreement—7,213,933 of the shares were issued as of March 31, 2020.
