CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q of GridIron BioNutrients, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), contains “forward-looking statements,” as defined in the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may”, “will”, “should”, “could”, “expects”, “plans”, “intends”, “anticipates”, “believes”, “estimates”, “predicts”, “potential” or “continue” or the negative of such terms and other comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements about our market opportunity, our strategies, competition, expected activities and expenditures as we pursue our business plan, and the adequacy of our available cash resources. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. Actual results may differ materially from the predictions discussed in these forward-looking statements. The economic environment within which we operate could materially affect our actual results. Additional factors that could materially affect these forward-looking statements and/or predictions include, among other things: (i) the development and protection of our brands and other intellectual property, (ii) the need to raise capital to meet business requirements, (iii) significant fluctuations in marketing expenses, (iv) the ability to achieve and expand significant levels of revenues, or recognize net income, from the sale of our products and services, (v) the Company’s ability to conduct the business if there are changes in laws, regulations, or government policies related to cannabis, (vi) management’s ability to attract and maintain qualified personnel necessary for the development and commercialization of its planned products, and (vii) other information that may be detailed from time to time in the Company’s filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

 

Our management has included projections and estimates in this Form 10-Q, which are based primarily on management’s experience in the industry, assessments of our results of operations, discussions and negotiations with third parties and a review of information filed by our competitors with the SEC or otherwise publicly available. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. We disclaim any obligation subsequently to revise any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statements or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.

GRIDIRON BIONUTRIENTS, INC.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

November 30, 2019

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

Gridiron BioNutrients, Inc. (the “Company” or “Gridiron”) was formed under the laws of the state of Nevada on July 20, 2017 to develop and distribute a retail line of health water infused with probiotics and minerals. The Company has elected an August 31st year end.

 

Acquisition and Reverse Merger

 

On October 10, 2017, the Company completed a reverse merger with My Cloudz, Inc. (“My Cloudz”) pursuant to which the Company merged into My Cloudz on October 10, 2017. Under the terms of the merger, the Company shareholders received 70,000,000 common shares of My Cloudz common stock such that the Company shareholders received approximately 57% of the total common shares issued and outstanding following the merger. Due to the nominal assets and limited operations of My Cloudz prior to the merger, the transaction was accorded reverse recapitalization accounting treatment under the provision of Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification (“FASB ASC”) 805 whereby the Company became the accounting acquirer (legal acquiree) and My Cloudz was treated as the accounting acquiree (legal acquirer). The historical financial records of the Company are those of the accounting acquirer (GridIron) adjusted to reflect the legal capital of the accounting acquiree (My Cloudz). As the transaction was treated as a recapitalization, no intangibles, including goodwill, were recognized. Concurrent with the effective date of the reverse recapitalization transaction, the Company adopted the fiscal year end of the accounting acquirer of August 31.

 

At the date of acquisition, My Cloudz had $3,972 of cash, $1,105 of accounts payable and a related party payable of $75,907. Book values for all assets acquired and liabilities assumed equaled fair values as of the date of acquisition.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

This summary of accounting policies for Gridiron is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s financial statements. The Company uses the accrual basis of accounting and accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP” accounting) and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified for comparative purposes to conform to the current-year financial statement presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on previously reported results.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Estimates are used when accounting for fair value calculations related to embedded conversion features of outstanding convertible notes payable.

Cash

 

For purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents to the extent the funds are not being held for investment purposes. The Company had $41,446 and $18,975 of cash as of November 30, 2019 and August 31, 2019, respectively.

 

Revenue recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue under ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606),” (“ASC 606”). The core principle of the revenue standard is that a company should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company only applies the five-step model to contracts when it is probable that the Company will collect the consideration it is entitled to in exchange for the goods and services transferred to the customer.

 

Revenue is recognized when a customer obtains control of promised goods or services and is recognized in an amount that reflects the consideration that an entity expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. In addition, the standard requires disclosure of the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. The amount of revenue that is recorded reflects the consideration that the Company expects to receive in exchange for those goods. The Company applies the following five-step model in order to determine this amount: (i) identification of the promised goods in the contract; (ii) determination of whether the promised goods are performance obligations, including whether they are distinct in the context of the contract; (iii) measurement of the transaction price, including the constraint on variable consideration; (iv) allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations; and (v) recognition of revenue when (or as) the Company satisfies each performance obligation.

 

Once a contract is determined to be within the scope of ASC 606 at contract inception, the Company reviews the contract to determine which performance obligations the Company must deliver and which of these performance obligations are distinct. The Company recognizes as revenues the amount of the transaction price that is allocated to the respective performance obligation when the performance obligation is satisfied or as it is satisfied. Generally, the Company’s performance obligations are transferred to customers at a point in time, typically upon delivery.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value of certain of the Company’s financial instruments including cash, prepaid expenses, accounts payable, accrued expenses, notes payable, and other accrued liabilities approximate cost because of their short maturities. The Company measures and reports fair value in accordance with ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosure” defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value investments.

 

Fair value, as defined in ASC 820, is 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. The fair value of an asset should reflect its highest and best use by market participants, principal (or most advantageous) markets, and an in-use or an in-exchange valuation premise. The fair value of a liability should reflect the risk of nonperformance, which includes, among other things, the Company’s credit risk.

Valuation techniques are generally classified into three categories: the market approach; the income approach; and the cost approach. The selection and application of one or more of the techniques may require significant judgment and are primarily dependent upon the characteristics of the asset or liability, and the quality and availability of inputs. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value under ASC 820 must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. ASC 820 also provides fair value hierarchy for inputs and resulting measurement as follows:

 

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2: Quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability; and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities; and

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability that are supported by little or no market activity, and that are significant to the fair values.

 

Fair value measurements are required to be disclosed by the Level within the fair value hierarchy in which the fair value measurements in their entirety fall. Fair value measurements using significant unobservable inputs (in Level 3 measurements) are subject to expanded disclosure requirements including a reconciliation of the beginning and ending balances, separately presenting changes during the period attributable to the following: (i) total gains or losses for the period (realized and unrealized), segregating those gains or losses included in earnings, and a description of where those gains or losses included in earning are reported in the statement of income.

 

As discussed in Note 9 – Derivative Liability, the Company valued its derivative liability using Level 3 inputs as of November 30, 2019 and August 31, 2019. The Company did not identify any additional assets or liabilities that are required to be presented on the balance sheet at fair value in accordance with ASC 825-10 as of November 30, 2019 and August 31, 2019.

 

Derivative Liabilities

 

The Company generally does not use derivative financial instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow or market risks. However, certain other financial instruments, such as warrants and embedded conversion features on the convertible debt, are classified as derivative liabilities due to protection provisions within the agreements. Convertible notes payable are initially recorded at fair value using the Monte Carlo model and subsequently adjusted to fair value at the close of each reporting period. The preferred stock warrants are initially recorded at fair value using the Black Scholes model and subsequently adjusted to fair value at the close of each reporting period. The Company accounts for derivative instruments and debt instruments in accordance with the interpretive guidance of ASC 815, ASU 2017-11, and associated pronouncements related to the classification and measurement of warrants and instruments with conversion features.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the assets and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carry forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Use of net operating loss carry forwards for income tax purposes may be limited by Internal Revenue Code section 382 if a change of ownership occurs.

Principals of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements represent the results of Gridiron BioNutrients, Inc, its wholly owned subsidiary, Gridiron Ventures and the assets, processes, and results therefrom. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated. All financial information has been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are carried at cost. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are expensed in the period incurred. Renewals and betterments that materially extend the life of the assets are capitalized. When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts, and any resulting gain or loss is reflected in income for the period.

 

Depreciation is computed for financial statement purposes on a straight-line basis over estimated useful lives of the related assets and the modified accelerated cost recovery system for federal income tax purposes. The estimated useful lives of depreciable assets are:

Inventories

 

Inventories consist of raw materials, packing materials, bottled water and concentrates, capsules, gummy products, drops and other items and are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value using the first‑in, first‑out method. In addition, the Company has $100,000 prepaid industrial hemp (biomass) raw material in inventory at November 30, 2019. The biomass is being processed at a third party. The Company periodically assesses the recoverability of its inventory and reduces the carrying value of the inventory when items are determined to be obsolete, defective or in excess of forecasted sales requirements. Inventory write‑downs for excess, defective and obsolete inventory are recorded as a cost of revenue. During three months ended November 30, 2019, the Company wrote-off $1,882 of obsolete inventory. The Company did not have any other write downs of inventory during the three months ended November 30, 2019 and 2018.

Basic Income (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic income (loss) per share is calculated by dividing the Company’s net loss applicable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares during the period. Diluted earnings per share is calculated by dividing the Company’s net income available to common shareholders by the diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year. The diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding is the basic weighted number of shares adjusted for any potentially dilutive debt or equity. The conversion of preferred shares, warrants and convertible debt to common shares could potentially bring the number of common shares to a total of approximately 242,118,000, which would exceed the authorized shares by approximately 42,118,000 shares. Due to existing restrictions limiting the holder of a convertible note to receive, upon conversion, shares of common stock which will not exceed 4.9% of our issued and outstanding common stock, there is no imminent requirement that the number of our authorized capital stock be increased. At an appropriate time, the Company envisions seeking shareholder approval of an increase in the Company’s authorized capitalization to some greater number of authorized shares, but the Company cannot provide any assurance that the Company will be able to obtain the necessary shareholder approval. If the Company fails to obtain shareholder approval for the increase in authorized capitalization, the Company may be in default under the terms of the preferred conversion and warrants and convertible promissory notes payable.

 

The preferred conversion and warrants would account for approximately 51,394,000 additional shares, the convertible debt would account for approximately 55,215,000 additional shares along with the 135,509,220 outstanding at November 30, 2019. The Company's convertible notes and warrants are excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share as they are anti-dilutive due to the Company's losses for the three months ended November 30, 2019 and 2018.

 

Dividends

 

As discussed in Note 6 – Stockholders Equity (Deficit), during the year ended August 31, 2018, the Company issued preferred stock which accrues dividends at a rate of 5% annually. There was $36,270 and $23,695 of dividends payable at November 30, 2019 and August 31, 2019, respectively. The dividends have not been declared and are accrued in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets as a result of a contractual obligation in the Company’s preferred stock offering.

 

Advertising Costs

 

The Company’s policy regarding advertising is to expense advertising when incurred. The Company incurred advertising costs totaling $1,371 and $393 during the three months ended November 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for share-based compensation in accordance with the fair value recognition provisions of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) No. 718. The Company issues restricted stock to employees and consultants for their services. Cost for these transactions are measured at the fair value of the equity instruments issued at the date of grant. These shares are considered fully vested and the fair market value is recognized as expense in the period granted. The Company recognized consulting expenses and a corresponding increase to additional paid-in-capital related to stock issued for services. For agreements requiring future services, the consulting expense is to be recognized ratably over the requisite service period.

 

There was $-0- of stock-based compensation during the three months ended November 30, 2019 and 2018.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

In August 2018, the SEC adopted the final rule under SEC Release No. 33-10532, ”Disclosure Update and Simplification,” amending certain disclosure requirements that were redundant, duplicative, overlapping, outdated or superseded. In addition, the amendments expanded the disclosure requirements on the analysis of stockholders’ equity for interim financial statements. Under the amendments, an analysis of changes in each caption of stockholders’ equity presented in the balance sheet must be provided in a note or separate statement. This analysis should present a reconciliation of the beginning balance to the ending balance of each period for which a statement of comprehensive income is required to be filed. This final rule was effective as of November 5, 2018. The adoption of this final rule did not have a material impact on the financial statements.

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, “Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Restricted Cash,” which provides amendments to current guidance to address the classifications and presentation of changes in restricted cash in the statement of cash flows. The effective date for the standard is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017. The Company adopted the standard effective September 1, 2018; the adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the financial statements.

 

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-16, “Income Taxes (Topic 740): Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other Than Inventory.” The amendments in this update will require recognition of current and deferred income taxes resulting from an intra-entity transfer of an asset other than inventory when the transfer occurs. This update is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The Company adopted the standard effective September 1, 2018; the adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the financial statements.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, ”Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326)” which introduces new guidance for the accounting for credit losses on instruments within its scope. The new guidance introduces an approach based on expected losses to estimate credit losses on certain types of financial instruments. For trade receivables, the Company will be required to use a forward-looking expected loss model rather than the incurred loss model for recognizing credit losses which reflects losses that are probable. Credit losses relating to available-for-sale debt securities will also be recorded through an allowance for credit losses rather than as a reduction in the amortized cost basis of the securities. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 31, 2019, including interim periods within those years. Early application of the guidance is permitted for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including the interim periods within those fiscal years. Application of the amendments is through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the effective date. The Company has adopted 2016-13 and determined there was no material impact on the financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842),” which supersedes the guidance in ASC 840,”Leases.” The purpose of the new standard is to improve transparency and comparability related to the accounting and reporting of leasing arrangements. The guidance will require balance sheet recognition for assets and liabilities associated with rights and obligations created by leases with terms greater than twelve months. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those years. Although the standard initially required the modified retrospective approach for adoption, in July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-18, allowing companies to initially apply the new lease requirements at the effective date and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. The Company has adopted 2016-02 and determined there was no material impact on the financial statements.

 

In February 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2018-02, Income Statement Reporting, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220). Effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption of the amendments in this Update is permitted, including adoption in any interim period, (1) for public business entities for reporting periods for which financial statements have not yet been issued and (2) for all other entities for reporting periods for which financial statements have not yet been made available for issuance. The amendments in this Update should be applied either in the period of adoption or retrospectively to each period (or periods) in which the effect of the change in the U.S. federal corporate income tax rate in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is recognized. The Company has adopted 2018-02 and determined there was no material impact on the financial statements.

 

Management believes recently issued accounting pronouncements will have no impact on the financial statements of the Company.

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable balances are established for amounts owed to the Company from its customers from the sale of products. The Company closely monitors the collectability of outstanding accounts receivable and provide an allowance for doubtful accounts based on estimated collections of outstanding amounts. The Company evaluated the accounts receivable and determined no collection loss reserve was necessary. There were $299 and $-0- outstanding accounts receivable as of November 30, 2019 and August 31, 2019, respectively.

 

Trademark

 

During the period ended August 31, 2017, a related party incurred total costs of $2,800 to acquire five trademarks on behalf of the Company. Trademark costs are capitalized as incurred to the extent the Company expects the costs incurred to result in a trademark being awarded. The trademarks are deemed to have an indefinite life and are reviewed for impairment loss considerations annually. At August 31, 2019, two of the trademarks for $1,120 were deemed impaired and were written off. As of November 30, 2019, and August 31, 2019, the Company had trademarks totaling $1,680.

 

NOTE 3 – GOING CONCERN

 

The Company’s financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company had a net loss of $269,849 for the three months ended November 30, 2019. The Company has working capital deficit of $257,675 and an accumulated deficit of $1,495,983 as of November 30, 2019. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

The ability of the Company to fully commence its operations is dependent upon, among other things, obtaining additional financing to continue operations, and execution of its business plan. In response to these concerns, management plans to fund operations through additional debt and equity financing. Debt instruments may be convertible or non-convertible and will vary based on the Company’s needs and financing options available at such times. There can be no assurance that management’s plan will be successful.

 

NOTE 4 – NOTES PAYABLES

 

Short-Term Notes Payable

 

As of November 30, 2019, and August 31, 2019, the Company had two notes payable with a principal balance of $49,500, owed to two separate noteholders. Each note payable is unsecured with one bearing interest at 5% and the other at 0%, respectively. The Company had an outstanding accrued interest balance of $2,079 and $1,014 as of November 30, 2019 and August 31, 2019, respectively, which has been included in the consolidated balance sheets.

Convertible Notes Payable

 

On August 27, 2019, the Company signed a convertible promissory note with an investor. The $30,000 note was issued with an original issue discount of $3,000 and bears interest at 10% per year. The note principal and interest are convertible into shares of common stock at a 25% discount to the lowest traded price of the Company’s common stock during the 10 prior trading days including the day the notice of conversion is received by the Company. The note matures on February 27, 2020. The note has a prepayment penalty of 110% of the principal and interest outstanding if repaid before 180 days from issuance. After February 27, 2020, the payment premium increases to 125% of the principal and interest outstanding and if in default, the payment premium increases to 140% of the principal and interest outstanding. The original issue discount is amortized through the term of the note. The unpaid balance including accrued interest was $30,781 and $30,033 at November 30, 2019 and August 31, 2019, respectively.

 

On November 25, 2019, the Company signed a convertible promissory note with an investor. The $140,000 note was issued with an original issue discount of $14,000 and bears interest at 10% per year. The note principal and interest are convertible into shares of common stock at a 35% discount to the lowest traded price of the Company’s common stock during the 10 prior trading days including the day the notice of conversion is received by the Company. The note matures on May 25, 2020. The note has a prepayment penalty of 110% of the principal and interest outstanding if repaid before 180 days from issuance. If in default, the payment premium increases to 140% of the principal and interest outstanding. The original issue discount is amortized through the term of the note. The unpaid balance including accrued interest was $140,192 at November 30, 2019.

 

The conversion features meets the definition of a derivative liability instrument because the conversion rate is variable and therefore does not meet the “fixed-for-fixed” criteria outlined in ASC 815-40-15. As a result, the conversion features of the notes are recorded as a derivative liability at fair value and marked-to-market each period with the changes in fair value each period charged or credited to other income (expense). See Note 9 - Derivative Liability, for a further discussion.

 

At November 30, 2019 and August 31, 2019, the outstanding principle balances of the convertible notes payable, net of original issue debt was $154,934 and $27,049, respectively. The Company recorded interest expense on the original issue debt discount of $1,885 and $-0- for the three months ended November 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively, in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.

 

NOTE 5 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

As at November 30, 2019 and August 31, 2019, the Company owed $56,963 and $38,449, respectively to its President and Director. The balance due is recorded in related party payable in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

NOTE 7 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

The Company could become a party to various legal actions arising in the ordinary course of business. Matters that are probable of unfavorable outcomes to the Company and which can be reasonably estimated are accrued. Such accruals are based on information known about the matters, the Company’s estimates of the outcomes of such matters and its experience in contesting, litigating and settling similar matters. As of the date of this report, there are no pending legal proceedings to which the Company is a party or of which any of their property is the subject, nor are there any such proceedings known to be contemplated by governmental authorities.

 

There was a bank account set up during the third quarter of 2019 to work in conjunction with a marketing company in the name of Green Money Enterprises, LLC. The arrangement allowed for merchant services payments to flow to this account and day to day expenses for marketing and consulting services to be accessed and for Green Money Enterprises to access this account per those expenses. In March 2019, the representative from Green Money Enterprises whom had the authority to access the bank account took various withdrawals from the account totaling $19,104. They were not authorized to take this money from the account and have since paid back $6,500 of the original $19,104. The net amount of these were recorded within the general and administrative expenses in the accompanying consolidated statement of operations. The Company is contemplating legal action against Green Money Enterprises for the money not paid back.

 

NOTE 8 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITY

 

Preferred Stock Warrants

 

As discussed in Note 6 – Stockholders’ Equity, the Company issued a total of 8,480,000 warrants to purchase common stock as part of its preferred stock offering. The warrants are exercisable for a period of three years at $0.165 per share. Additionally, the warrant holder is entitled to a cashless exercise after six months from issuance in which the holder is entitled to receive a number of shares equal to: [A] the number of outstanding warrant shares under the original issuance multiplied by [B] the greater of the trailing five day volume weighted average price less [A] the number of outstanding warrant shares under the original issuance multiplied by [C] the exercise price of the warrant under the original issuance divided by [D] the lesser of the arithmetic average of the volume weighted average price during the five trailing trading days or the volume weighted average price for the trading day immediately prior to the cashless exercise election. For clarity, the resulting formula is [(A x B) – (A x C)] / D.

 

The Company analyzed the conversion features of the cashless exercise feature in the warrants issued for derivative accounting consideration under ASC 815-15 “Derivatives and Hedging” and determined that the embedded features should be classified as a derivative liability because the exercise price of these warrants are subject to a variable rate. The Company has determined that warrants are not considered to be solely indexed to the Company’s own stock and is therefore not afforded equity treatment. In accordance with ASC 815, the Company has recorded a derivative liability.

 

Upon issuance, the Company valued the derivative using a Black-Scholes model yielding a total value of $674,012 which was expensed during the year ended August 31, 2018. The Company used the following assumptions upon initial measurement: value per common share of $0.09, a remaining life of 3.0 years, an exercise price of $0.165, a risk-free rate of 2.77% and volatility of 195%.

The Company revalued the derivative liability as of November 30, 2019 and recorded a loss of $9,637 on the change in fair value of derivative liabilities for the three months then ended. The Company used the following assumptions upon the measurement: value per common share of $0.0079, a remaining life of 1.67 years, an exercise price of $0.165, a risk-free rate of 1.67% and volatility of 249%.

Convertible Notes Payable

 

As discussed in Note 4 – Notes Payable, on August 27, 2019, the Company signed a $30,000 convertible promissory note with an investor. The note principal and interest are convertible into shares of common stock at a 25% discount to the lowest traded price of the Company’s common stock during the 10 prior trading days including the day the notice of conversion is received by the Company.

 

The Company analyzed the conversion feature and determine it meets the definition of a derivative liability instrument because the conversion rate is variable and therefore does not meet the “fixed-for-fixed” criteria outlined in ASC 815-40-15. As a result, the conversion features of the notes are recorded as a derivative liability at fair value and marked-to-market each period with the changes in fair value each period charged or credited to other income (expense).

 

Upon issuance, the Company valued the derivative using a Monte Carlo simulation model yielding a total value of $50,277 which was recorded as a derivative liability during the year ended August 31, 2019. The Company used the following assumptions upon initial measurement: value per common share of $0.0089, a remaining life of 6 months, an exercise price of $0.00423, a risk-free rate of 1.98% and volatility of 287%. In addition, the Company calculated the derivative discount as the difference between the conversion price and the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of issuance. The Company recorded an original issue discount of $3,000 and a derivative discount of $27,000 which aggregated a total discount of $30,000 and was recorded as a discount in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet. On the date of issuance, a net loss of $23,277 was recorded in the accompanying statement of operations.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

 

The following information should be read in conjunction with (i) the financial statements of GridIron BioNutrients, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), and development stage company, and the notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this Form 10-Q together with (ii) the more detailed business information and the August 31, 2019 audited financial statements and related notes included in the Company’s Form 10-K, as amended (File No. 000-55852; the “Form 10-K”), as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 17, 2019. Statements in this section and elsewhere in this Form 10-Q that are not statements of historical or current fact constitute “forward-looking” statements

 

OVERVIEW

 

The Company was incorporated in the State of Nevada on July 31, 2014 and established a fiscal year end of August 31.

 

Going Concern

 

To date the Company has little operations or revenues and consequently has incurred recurring losses from operations. Minimal revenues are anticipated until we complete the financing we endeavor to obtain, as described in the Form 10-K, and implement our initial business plan. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on raising capital to fund our business plan and ultimately to attain profitable operations. Accordingly, these factors raise substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company plans to raise additional funds through debt or equity offerings. There is no guarantee that the Company will be able to raise any capital through this or any other offerings.

 

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICES

 

Please refer to Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in the accompanying Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

PLAN OF OPERATION

 

We have not yet generated or realized meaningful revenues from our business. In the next 12 months, we plan to identify business to whom we can license our brand name and sell our products.

 

Results of Operations

 

Three-Month Periods Ended November 30, 2019 and 2018

 

We recorded revenues $633 for the three months ended November 30, 2019, with the cost of such revenues being $3,434. We recorded revenues of $1,128 for the three months ended November 30, 2018, with the cost of such revenues being $30,063.

 

For the three months ended November 30, 2019, we incurred total operating expenses of $54,301, consisting of advertising expenses of $1,371, general and administrative expenses of $17,821, and professional fees of $35,109.

 

By comparison, for the three months ended November 30, 2018, we incurred total operating expenses of $162,663, consisting of advertising expenses of $393, consulting fees of $21,500, general and administrative expenses of $67,558, and professional fees of $73,212.

 

The decrease in operating expenses for the three months ended November 30, 2019, as compared to the three months ended November 30, 2018, was primarily attributable to $49,373, or 73.6%, reduction in general and administrative costs, and a $38,103, or 52%, reduction in professional fees, and a $21,500, or 100%, reduction in consulting fees.

 

For the three months ended November 30, 2019, we had a net loss of $269,849, while for the three months ended November 30, 2018, we incurred a net loss of $91,408.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At November 30, 2019, we had a cash balance of $41,446, and our working capital balance was $(257,675). We do not have sufficient cash on hand to complete our plan of operation for the next 12 months. We will need to raise funds to complete our plan of operation and fund our ongoing operational expenses for the next 12 months. Additional funding will likely come from equity financing from the sale of our common stock. If we are successful in completing an equity financing, existing shareholders will experience dilution of their interest in our Company. We do not have any financing arranged and we cannot provide investors with any assurance that we will be able to raise sufficient funding from the sale of our common stock to fund our development activities and ongoing operational expenses. In the absence of such financing, our business will likely fail. There are no assurances that we will be able to achieve further sales of our common stock or any other form of additional financing. If we are unable to achieve the financing necessary to continue our plan of operations, then we will not be able to continue our development to complete our plan of operation and our business will fail.

 

For the three months ended November 30, 2019, we had net cash used in operating activities of $103,529. Net cash of $126,000 was provided by financing activities for the three months ended November 30, 2019 from a third-party convertible notes payable.
