NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

These consolidated financial statements of Graphene & Solar Technologies Limited (GSTX or the Company) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP). In the opinion of management, these financial statements include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods. Certain information, accounting policies and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been omitted pursuant to Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules and regulations. These financial statements should be read along with Solar Quartz’s audited financial statements as of September 30, 2019.

 

Going Concern – The Company has incurred cumulative net losses throughout 2019 financial periods and currently in 2020 periods. Accordingly, it requires capital to fund working capital deficits and for future operating activities to take place. The Company’s ability to raise new funds through the future issuances of debt or common stock is unknown. The obtainment of additional financing, the successful development of a plan of operations, and its transition, ultimately, to the attainment of profitable operations are necessary for the Company to continue operations. The ability to successfully resolve these factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Going Concern – The Company has incurred cumulative net losses since its inception and will require capital for future operating activities to take place. The Company’s ability to raise new funds through the future issuances of debt or common stock is unknown. The obtainment of additional financing, the successful development of a plan of operations, and its transition, ultimately, to the attainment of profitable operations are necessary for the Company to continue operations. The ability to successfully resolve these factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Future issuances of the Company’s equity or debt securities will be required for the Company to finance operations and continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

 

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

 

Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation — The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Graphene & Solar Technologies Limited and its subsidiary. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and pursuant to the accounting and disclosure rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). A summary of the significant accounting policies applied in the preparation of the accompanying financial statements can be found in the Company’s Annual Report in form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2019.

 

Use of Estimates - The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Significant estimates include but are not limited to the estimated useful lives of equipment for purposes of depreciation and the valuation of common shares issued for services, equipment and the liquidation of liabilities.

 

8 

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents-Cash and cash equivalents are carried at cost and represent cash on hand, demand deposits placed with banks or other financial institutions and all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less as of the purchase date of such investments. As of June 30 2020 and 2019, the Company had $747 and $15,261 in cash, respectively, and no cash equivalents.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments - The Company accounts for freestanding contracts that are settled in a company’s own stock, including common stock warrants, to be designated as an equity instrument or generally as a liability. A contract so designated is carried at fair value on a company’s balance sheet, with any changes in fair value recorded as a gain or loss in a company’s results of operations.

 

The Company records all derivatives on the balance sheet at fair value, adjusted at the end of each reporting period to reflect any material changes in fair value, with any such changes classified as changes in derivatives valuation in the statement of operations. The calculation of the fair value of derivatives utilizes highly subjective and theoretical assumptions that can materially affect fair values from period to period. The recognition of these derivative amounts does not have any impact on cash flows.

 

At the date of the conversion of any convertible debt, the pro rata fair value of the related embedded derivative liability is transferred to additional paid-in capital.

 

The Company determined our derivative liabilities to be a Level 3 fair value measurement and uses the Binomial pricing model to calculate the fair value. The Binomial model requires six basic data inputs: the exercise or strike price, time to expiration, the risk free interest rate, the current stock price, the estimated volatility of the stock price in the future, and the dividend rate. Changes to these inputs could produce a significantly higher or lower fair value measurement. The fair value of each convertible note is estimated using the Binomial valuation model.

 

Stock-Based Compensation - The Company accounts for employee stock-based compensation using the fair value method. However, the Company did not evaluate employee-based compensation as the Company has no employees. The Company did issue stock to vendors/consultants for services performed. The fair value attributable to stock options is calculated based on the Black-Scholes option pricing model and is amortized to expense over the service period which is equivalent to the time required to vest the stock options.

 

Foreign Currency Translations – The functional currency of the Company’s foreign subsidiary is primarily the respective local currency. Assets and liabilities of the Company’s foreign subsidiary are translated into U.S. Dollars at the year-end exchange rate, and revenues and expenses are translated at average monthly exchange rates. Translation gains and losses are recorded as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) within stockholders’ equity. All other foreign currency transaction gains and losses are included in other (income) expense, net.

 

9 

 

Earnings Per Share - Basic earnings per share have been calculated based upon the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share were not calculated as such potential shares would be anti-dilutive.

 

Reclassifications - Certain amounts previously presented for prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current presentation. The reclassifications had no effect on net loss, working capital or equity previously reported.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements - Various accounting standards updates have been recently issued, most of which represented technical corrections to the accounting literature or were applicable to specific industries. Recently accounting pronouncements have been issued that are likely to have a material impact to the Company’s consolidated financial statements. These include accounting standards as they apply to leases. The Company will treat its development of mineral rights under standards for operating leases commonly applied in mineral extraction industries.

 

Mineral Rights- Investment in mineral rights consists of the exclusive mining and development rights for the two high purity quartz silica deposits known as Quartz Hill (represented by mining leases ML 30235, ML 30236 and ML 30237) and White Springs (represented by leases ML 30238 and ML 30239) located in North Queensland, Australia. The investment in mineral rights is carried on the books of the Company at the cost of the lease rights. Mineral rights assets are tested for impairment if facts and circumstances indicate that impairment exists.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND PLAN OF OPERATION

 

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and the related notes, and other financial information included in this Form 10-Q.

 

Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis contains not only statements that are historical facts, but also statements that are forward-looking. Forward-looking statements are, by their very nature, uncertain and risky. Although the forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report reflect the good faith judgment of our management, such statements can only be based on facts and factors currently known by them. Consequently, and because forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, the actual results and outcomes may differ materially from the results and outcomes discussed in the forward-looking statements. You are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made by us in this report as we attempt to advise interested parties of the risks and factors that may affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations and prospects.

 

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

The information contained in this Form 10-Q contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, including among other things, statements regarding our capital needs, business strategy and expectations. Any statement which does not contain a historical fact may be deemed to be a forward-looking statement. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may”, “will”, “should”, “expect”, “plan”, “intend”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “estimate”, “predict”, “potential” or “continue”, the negative of such terms or other comparable terminology. In evaluating forward looking statements, you should consider various factors outlined in our Form 10-K report for the year ended September 30, 2019, filed with the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and, from time to time, in other reports we file with the SEC. These factors may cause our actual results to differ materially from any forward-looking statement. We disclaim any obligation to publicly update these statements or disclose any difference between our actual results and those reflected in these statements.

 

Overview

 

In July 2017 we acquired Solar Quartz Technologies Limited, a New Zealand corporation. We are now seeking new financing in the form of equity, debt or a combination thereof to meet development and general operating obligations. Absent achieving sufficient funds soon, our viability is in doubt. The Company has managed to raise some capital by sale of shares, but as of June, 2020, the Company has not been successful in raising sufficient funds; However, work is underway to secure funding, and we believe that funding for the Company is possible in the near future although no assurance can be made as to the amount of funds, if any, or the terms thereof.

 

Current Business and Operations

 

 On July 2017 we acquired Solar Quartz Technologies Limited, a New Zealand Corporation.

 

With the acquisition of Solar Quartz Technologies Limited we now own mining exploration and development rights to significant deposits of High Purity Quartz that we have determined in our evaluation of independent reports and considered judgment to have reserves which are adequate to provide the Company with adequate resources for 25-30 years of production. See Item 1 in the FY 2019 10-K Business for greater details.

 

12 

 

We are currently actively seeking interim working capital in order to complete mining plans and build a pre-processing plant in Townsville, North Queensland, Australia, build upon our management team and market high purity quartz (HPQS) to established markets with whom our management team have had prior relationships. These organizational efforts will be to secure significant new capital for the acquisition of a site and the building of the pre-processing plant. Upon completion, that plant will enable the Company to upgrade its newly mined HPQS to a higher level of purity that has a significant world-wide demand for use in the production of advanced PV solar Panels and all high-end electronics, lighting, telecom, optic and microelectronics. Failure to secure these financings will have a negative impact on the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Results of Operations

 

For the fiscal quarters ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 we generated no revenues, and thus no cost of sales or gross profits.

 

For the fiscal quarters ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, we incurred $464,110 and $384,477 respectively in operating expenses.

 

For the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2020 we recorded other expenses of $13,349 while for quarter ended June 30, 2019 we incurred expenses of $20,692 both items are represented by accrued interest on debt. In June quarter 2019 additional expenses of $30,218 were recorded for loss on conversion and early payment penalty on Note payment. Other income of $1,972 was earned in the fiscal quarter, June 30, 2020.

 

For the year quarter June 30, 2020, we reported net loss before taxes of $475,487 while in the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2019, we reported a net loss before taxes of $459,394. Since there were no tax obligations in either year, net income / loss in each year was the same as that reported before taxes.

 

For the periods ended September 30, 2019 and June 30, 2020, our cash positions were $74,241 and $747 respectively.

 

As of June 30, 2020, we had total current liabilities of $1,498,139 while as of September 30, 2019, we had total current liabilities of $1,129,661 an increase of about 33%. Accrued interest payable increased from $110,738 to $127,131 all attributable to accruals on the loans and the convertible notes payable.

 

NOTE: We have recorded a total of $228,967 payable as a liability due to loan and note holders. We have been attempting to substantiate notes relating to $160,747 of this total amount. Our efforts to get the debt holders to show further evidence of this debt and communicate with the debtholders thus far have not been effective. These notes were issued and loans recorded by Vanguard Energy prior to the acquisition of Solar Quartz Technologies Ltd in July 2017. However, in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles the liability remains on our balance sheet at this time.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of June 30, 2020, we had $58,118 in total assets and $1,498,139 in total current liabilities. Accordingly, we had a working capital deficit of $1,440,022.

 

NOTE – MINERAL ASSETS While the Company maintains that it has quartz and other mineral assets that exceed the current carrying value on the balance sheet any such additional value would only be recognized upon sale and accordingly in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles the assets in question are carried at lower of cost or market. The Company has asserted that there have been offers and a share exchange that would result in an indicated asset value above the current balance sheet value. No accounting or provision for this possible gain has been reflected in these financial statements.
