ITEM 9 LABS CORP.

(FORMERLY AIRWARE LABS CORP)

NOTES TO CODENSED INTERIM CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1 – Description of Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Description of Business

 

Item 9 Labs Corp. (“Item 9 Labs” or the “Company”), formerly Airware Labs Corp., is a Delaware corporation. The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on June 15, 2010 as Crown Dynamics Corp. On October 26, 2012, the Articles of Incorporation were amended to reflect a name change to Airware Labs Corp, and on April 2, 2018, they were amended again to reflect the name change to Item 9 Labs Corp.

 

On October 18, 2018 the Company effected a 1 for 20 reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock. The par value and number of authorized shares were not adjusted as a result of the reverse stock split. The total number of shares outstanding at the time of the split was adjusted from 1,095,332,835 to 54,766,642. All share information in these financial statements has been retroactively adjusted to reflect the effect of the reverse split.

 

On March 20, 2018, the Company closed on an Agreement and Plan of Exchange (the “Agreement”) to acquire all of the membership interests of BSSD Group, LLC (“BSSD”), an Arizona limited liability company formed on May 2, 2017, in exchange for newly issued restricted shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Shares”), which represent approximately 75% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock on a fully-diluted basis. The 40,355,771 Shares were distributed pro-rata to the BSSD members. As part of the Agreement, the Company agreed to increase its authorized shares of common stock to two billion.

 

For accounting purposes the transaction is being recorded as a reverse recapitalization, with BSSD as the accounting acquirer. Consequently, the historical pre-merger financial statements of BSSD are now those of the Company. In its determination that BSSD was the accounting acquirer, the Company considered pertinent facts and circumstances, including the following: (i) the BSSD owners received the largest portion of the voting rights of the combined entity; (ii) the management team of the combined entity is primarily comprised of owners or management of BSSD; (iii) the continuing business of the combined entity will be the business of BSSD. The accompanying consolidated financial statements reflect the consolidated operations of the Company from March 20, 2018.

 

Through a licensing agreement, the Company grows medical marijuana and produces cannabis related products at their facility in Pinal County, Arizona on behalf of licensed medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of Arizona. The major assets of the Company, consisting of five acres of land and a cultivation facility, were contributed by the members of BSSD in May 2017 and were recorded at the historical carrying value (original cost less any related accumulated depreciation) of the member as of the contribution date.

 

On September 12, 2018, the Company executed a $1,500,000 promissory note (see Note 7) which was used to make a capital contribution into Strive Management, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“Strive Management”). In exchange for the contribution, the Company received a 20% membership interest in Strive Management. The remaining interests are held by three individuals one of which is the Company’s current Chief Executive Officer. Through a management agreement with Strive Wellness of Nevada, LLC, a related party (the Company CEO is a member of this LLC), Strive Management will facilitate the cultivation, processing and distribution of marijuana in Nevada. Strive Wellness of Nevada, LLC has been allocated cultivation, processing and distribution licenses from the State of Nevada. Additionally, the Company will acquire an additional 31% ownership of Strive Management upon the approval from the State of Nevada to operate the cultivation and processing facility.

 

Principles of Consolidation

Item 9 Labs consolidates all variable interest entities (“VIEs”) in which the Company is deemed to be the primary beneficiary and all other entities in which it has a controlling voting interest.  An entity is generally a VIE if it meets any of the following criteria: (i) the entity has insufficient equity to finance its activities without additional subordinated financial support from other parties, (ii) the equity investors cannot make significant decisions about the entity’s operations or (iii) the voting rights of some investors are not proportional to their obligations to absorb the expected losses of the entity or receive the expected returns of the entity and substantially all of the entity’s activities involve or are conducted on behalf of the investor with disproportionately few voting rights. The Company periodically makes judgments in determining whether its investees are VIEs and, each reporting period, the Company assesses whether it is the primary beneficiary of any of its VIEs. As of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, the Company is deemed the primary beneficiary of Strive Management because the entity has insufficient equity to finance its activities without additional subordinated support. The interests in Strive Management held by non-controlling members has been presented on the statement of operations and statement of stockholders’ equity as non-controlling interest.

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiaries and variable interest entities in which the Company is the primary beneficiary. Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

 

The accompanying interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company as of June 30, 2019, do not include all the information and notes necessary for a comprehensive presentation of financial position and results of operations and should be read in conjunction with our September 30, 2018 audited financial statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on our Form 10-12G filed June 27, 2019. It is management’s opinion that all material adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) have been made, which are necessary for a fair financial statement presentation. The results for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending September 30, 2019.

  F- 7  

 

Accounting Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) in the United States of America 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 revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. Significant estimates of the Company include estimated useful lives of property and equipment, deferred income taxes, fair value of acquired intangible assets, the fair value of common stock provided as consideration and the estimated fair value of stock options and warrants.

 

Discontinued Operations

The Company sold the former Airware business of nasal dilator sales on May 3, 2018, see Note 4. The operating results related to this business have been classified as discontinued operations in the condensed interim consolidated financial statements in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 205-20, Discontinued Operations for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2018. Accounts payable from these discontinued operations in the amount of $427,389 remain on the balance sheet as of June 30, 2019. The amount presented as other income during the three and nine months ended June 30, 2019 represents a gain resulting from the repayment of a liability acquired from Airwares that was negotiated and repaid in full at an amount less than the carrying amount.

Cash

 

Cash represents cash on hand, demand deposits placed with banks and other financial institutions and all highly liquid instruments purchased with a remaining maturity of three months or less as of the purchase date of such investments. The Company maintains cash on deposit, which, can exceed federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses on such accounts nor believes it is exposed to any significant credit risk on cash.

 

Accounts Receivable and Notes Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are reported at the amount management expects to collect from outstanding balances. Differences between the amount due and the amount management expects to collect are reported in the results of operations of the year in which those differences are determined, with an offsetting entry to a valuation allowance for accounts receivable. Management believes all accounts receivable outstanding as of the balance sheet dates are fully collectible, and as such has elected to not record a valuation allowance for these periods.

 

Deferred Costs

 

Deferred costs consist of the costs directly related to the production and cultivation of marijuana crops. Deferred costs are relieved to cost of services as products are delivered to dispensaries.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are recorded at cost. Depreciation is provided for on the straight-line method, over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Maintenance and repairs that neither materially add to the value of the property nor appreciably prolong its life are charged to expense as incurred. Betterments or renewals are capitalized when incurred. Gains and losses on the disposition of property and equipment are recorded in the period incurred.

 

The estimated useful lives of property and equipment are:

 

· Cultivation equipment 2-5 years
· Buildings 30 years

 

Intangible Assets Subject to Amortization

 

Intangible assets include trade name, customer relationships, website, a noncompete agreement and intellectual property obtained through a business acquisition (see Note 2). Intangible assets acquired in a business combination are recognized at fair value using generally accepted valuation methods deemed appropriate for the type of intangible asset acquired. Intangible assets with finite lives are amortized over their estimated useful life and reported net of accumulated amortization, separately from goodwill. Amortization is calculation on the straight-line basis using the following estimated useful lives:

 

· Trade name 10 years
· Customer relationships 5 years
· Noncompete agreements 3 years
· Website and intellectual property 10 years

 

Generally, the Company utilizes the relief from royalty method to value trade name, the with or without method for valuing the customer relationships, and the discounted cash flow method for valuing website and intellectual property.

 

Goodwill

 

Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price paid for the acquisition of a business over the fair value of the net tangible and intangible assets acquired. Goodwill is not subject to amortization and is tested annually for impairment, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of goodwill may not be recoverable.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under FASB ASC 740,  Income Taxes . Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based upon differences between financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse.

 

The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, and the State of Arizona. The Company is subject to U.S. federal, state, and local income tax examinations by tax authorities. All periods beginning on or after January 1, 2014 are open to examination by taxing authorities. The Company believes it has no tax positions for which the ultimate deductibility is highly uncertain.

  F- 8  

 

Revenue Recognition

 

On October 1, 2017, the Company adopted ASC Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (“ASC 606”) and all the related amendments. The Company elected to adopt this guidance using the modified retrospective method. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

The core principle of ASC 606 requires that an entity 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. ASC 606 defines a five-step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, it is possible more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than required under U.S. GAAP including identifying performance obligations in the contract, estimating the amount of variable consideration to include in the transaction price and allocating the transaction price to each separate performance obligation.

 

The majority of the Company’s revenue is associated with a customer contract that represents an obligation to perform services that are delivered at a single point in time.  Any costs incurred prior to the period in which the services are performed to completion are deferred and recognized as cost of services in the period in which the performance obligations are completed. Since the Company’s revenue is generated from one customer contract, the Company does not have material contract assets or liabilities that fall under ASC 606. As of June 30, 2019 and 2018, 90% of the Company’s revenues were generated for performance obligations completed in the State of Arizona.

 

The Company recognizes revenue as services are rendered. Services are considered complete upon successful delivery of the product to the dispensary as the Company has no further performance obligations at this point in time and collection is assured. Per the dispensary contract, the Company is paid 85% of the wholesale market price of the marijuana for the services rendered.

 

The Company’s revenues accounted for under ASC 606, do not require significant estimates or judgments based on the nature of the Company’s revenue stream. The sales price is generally fixed at the point of sale and all consideration from the contract is included in the transaction price. The Company’s contracts do not include multiple performance obligations or variable consideration.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The carrying value of the Company’s financial instruments, consisting of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximate fair value due to their short term to maturity.  The Company’s long-term receivable resulting from the sale of Airware was discounted to its estimated fair value on the date (see Note 4).

Net Loss Per Share

 

Basic earnings per share does not include dilution and is computed by dividing loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings of an entity. Dilutive securities are not included in the weighted average number of shares when inclusion would be anti-dilutive. At June 30, 2019, there were 646,008 shares underlying convertible notes payable, warrants and options.

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for its stock-based awards in accordance with ASC Subtopic 718-10, “Compensation – Stock Compensation”, which requires fair value measurement on the grant date and recognition of compensation expense for all stock-based payment awards made to employees and directors. For stock options, the Company estimates the fair value using a closed option valuation (Black-Scholes) model. The fair value is then expensed over the requisite service periods of the award which is generally the vesting period and the related amount is recognized in the consolidated statements of operations. The Company recognizes forfeitures at the time they occur.

 

The Black-Scholes option-pricing model requires the input of certain assumptions that require the Company’s judgment, including the expected term and the expected stock price volatility of the underlying stock. The assumptions used in calculating the fair value of stock-based compensation represent management’s best estimates, but these estimates involve inherent uncertainties and the application of judgment. As a result, if factors change resulting in the use of different assumptions, stock-based compensation expense could be materially different in the future.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain accounts and financial statement captions in the prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current period financial statements.

 

 

Note 2 –Acquisition

 

On November 26, 2018, the company’s wholly owned subsidiary AZ DP Holdings, LLC (AZDP) performed an acquisition of the majority of the assets of Arizona DP Consulting, LLC (AZDPC), a consulting firm specializing in obtaining marijuana dispensary permits and cannabis related business plans. The purchase price was $1,500,000 in cash and 3,000,000 shares of restricted common stock having an aggregate value of $7,500,000 or $2.50 per share based on current market price of the Company shares at time asset purchase agreement was executed. Pursuant to the agreement, Sara Gullickson transitioned from President to CEO under a 3 year employment agreement and became a member of the board of directors of the company. Additionally, AZDP agreed to hire the employees of AZDPC and lease its existing office space which requires $3,200 of monthly rent through May 2019. This acquisition effectiv ely terminates the contract dated June 26, 2018 described in Note 11. Below is a summary of AZDPC’s revenue, expense and net income for January 1, 2018 through August 31, 2018, and January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017. Assets and liabilities of AZDPC were negligible so presentation was not deemed necessary.

Note 7 – Long Term Debt

 

On September 13, 2018, the Company entered into a Loan and Revenue Participation Agreement with Viridis Group I9 Capital LLC (“Viridis”) in which Viridis has agreed to loan the Company up to $2.7 million for the expansion of the Company’s Arizona and Nevada properties (see Note 10). As of September 30, 2018, the Company received $1,500,000 of proceeds from Viridis in the form of a promissory note. The $1,500,000 proceeds were utilized to acquire a 20% ownership in Strive Management, LLC as described in Notes 1 and 8. In exchange for the loan, Viridis will be repaid in the form of waterfall revenue participation schedules. Viridis shall receive 5% of the Company’s gross revenues from the Nevada operations, until the loan is repaid, 2% until repaid 200% of the amount loaned, and 1% of gross revenues in perpetuity or until a change in control. Payments on the loan will commence 90 days after the Nevada operation begins earning revenue. Parties acknowledge that the Company is expected to own only 51% of the Nevada operations and therefore Viridis’ revenue participation is limited to the Company’s interest. The operations in Nevada have not yet begun as of the date of this filing.

 

The additional $1,200,000 proceeds were utilized to construct an additional 10,000 square foot cultivation and processing facility in Arizona that became operational in June 2019. The proceeds were received as construction draws between November 2018 and January 2019. In exchange for the loan, Viridis will be repaid in the form of waterfall revenue participation schedules. Viridis shall receive 5% of the Company’s gross revenues from the Arizona operations, until the loan is repaid, 2% until repaid 200% of the amount loaned, and 1% of gross revenues in perpetuity or until a change in control. Payments on the loan will commence 90 days after the Arizona operation begins earning revenue. Interest on the notes accrue monthly at a 2.9% annual rate. Interest of $24,097 has been accrued as of June 30, 2019.

 

 

Note 8 – Variable Interest Entity

 

As of June 30, 2019, the Company has determined that it holds a variable interest in Strive Management due to the Company being its sole source of capital. Further, the Company has agreed to construct an operational facility in Nevada. As such, Item 9 Labs Corp will raise funds as necessary ($4,000,000 expected) to construct the facility, which will be wholly owned by a subsidiary of Item 9 Labs Corp and leased to Strive Management, LLC, the operating company. No funds have been raised as of the date of these financial statements. If the funds are not raised, the additional 31% interest due to the Company upon operational approval from the State of Nevada as discussed in Note 1 would be subject to reclamation by the other members of Strive Management. The Company has been determined to be the primary beneficiary of Strive Management has the Company has the power to direct the activities that significantly impact Strive Management’s economic performance and the obligation to absorb losses. Strive Managements financial statements as of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018 have been consolidated with the Company. Upon consolidation, the asset of Strive Management was recorded at its carrying amounts. As of June 30, 2019, and September 30, 2018 the effects of consolidating Strive Management resulted in an increase in assets of $626,067 and $1,500,000, respectively, primarily from cash. For the three and nine months ended June 30, 2019, Strive Management incurred income of $8,508 and a loss of $66,732, respectively.

Note 9 - Concentrations

 

For the three and nine months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, 92% and 100%, respectively, of the Company’s revenue was generated from a single customer. All trade accounts receivable at June 30, 2019 and 2018 was due from one customer.

 

 

Note 10 - Commitments and Contingencies

 

The production and possession of marijuana is prohibited by the United States of America, though the state of Arizona allows these activities to be performed at licensed facilities such as BSSD. The Company does not believe the federal prohibition of these activities will negatively impact the business. As such, the Company has not elected to record a related accrual contingency.

 

The Company is in default on convertible notes payable totaling $20,000 (see Note 6). The Company has attempted to communicate with the note holder to request extension or conversion, but has been unsuccessful in doing so. The full balance on this note is included in current liabilities.

 

On April 20, 2018, the Company entered into an agreement for the purchase of approximately 44 acres of land from an affiliate of a founding member of BSSD. The purchase price of the property is $3,000,000, payable as follows; (i) $200,000 deposited with escrow agent as an initial earnest money deposit in April 2018, (ii) on or before February 1, 2019, the Company will deposit an additional $800,000 into escrow as additional earnest money deposit and (iii) the balance of the purchase price shall be paid via a promissory note. The earnest money amounts are non-refundable. The Company has negotiated an amendment to this agreement that will spread the $800,000 payment over the course of 4 months through June 30, 2019. As of June 30, 2019, the Company had paid a total of $600,000 which was deposited in escrow, and classified as a long-term asset on the consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2019. As of the date of these financial statements, a total of $600,000 has been deposited in escrow.

 

On June 26, 2018, the Company entered into a contractor agreement with Chase Herschman pursuant to which he will provide services in exchange for $120,000 annually, payable each month; up to $420,000 in common stock options which shall vest upon the occurrence of certain benchmarks as described in the contractor agreement and a commission of 1% of the gross profits of the Company.

(1) As discussed in Note 2, on March 20, 2018 the Company executed an agreement to acquire all the voting interest in BSSD Group, LLC. As BSSD Group, LLC is the accounting acquirer, all previously outstanding warrants were re-issued under the new company.

 

Stock Options

 

On May 8, 2018, the Company granted 22,500 stock options to board members. The options are exercisable at $2.40 per share with a ten year term. The options will vest equally over three years unless there is a change of control of the Company at which time any unvested options vest immediately. As of June 30, 2019, there are 294,991 stock options outstanding.

 

As discussed in Note 2, on March 20, 2018 the Company executed an agreement to acquire all the voting interest in BSSD Group, LLC. As BSSD Group, LLC is the accounting acquirer, all previously outstanding options were re-issued and vested immediately as this was considered a change in control.

 

The Company determines the fair value of stock options issued on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. There was no option activity in the nine months ended June 30, 2019. The following assumptions were used for determining the fair value of the options granted during the year ended September 30, 2018:

 

Expected stock price volatility   34.72%
     
Expected dividend yield   0.00%
       
Risk-free interest rate   2.97%
       
Option life   10 years  
       
Stock-based compensation recognized   3,773  
       
Unrecognized compensation expense   23,390  
to be recognized in future periods      

 

We do not have an extensive history as a public company and our common stock transactions are too infrequent, therefore we could not practicably estimate the expected volatility of our own stock. Accordingly, we have substituted the historical volatility of a relevant comparable company that is publicly traded and does business within the industry we operate.

 

The options granted during the year ended September 30, 2018 were determined to have a fair value at date of grant of $2.40. The unrecognized compensation expense of $13,856 will be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.09 years. Compensation expense in the amount of $3,178 and $9,534, respectively, was recognized in the three and nine months ended June 30, 2019.

 

There was no activity in stock options during the nine months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018. 294,991 and 272,491 options remain outstanding as of June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. 272,491 options were exercisable as of June 30, 2019 and 2018.

 

Note 13 - Subsequent Events

 

On July 1, 2019, the Company entered into a 3 year agreement with a concert venue to be the name sponsor for the venue.

  Overview

 

Item 9 Labs produces premium cannabis and cannabis related products in a rapidly growing market. We currently offer more than 300 products that we group in the following categories: flower; concentrates; distillates; and hardware. Our product offerings will continue to grow as we develop new products to meet the needs of the end-users. We make our products available to consumers through licensed dispensaries in Arizona. In just over a year from our first product delivery, Item 9 Labs’ products are now carried in more than 50 dispensaries throughout the state of Arizona.

We believe our past and future success is dependent upon our ongoing ability to understand the needs and desires of the consumers; and we develop and offer products that meet their needs.

The objective of Item 9 Labs is to leverage our assets (tangible and intangible) to fuel the growth of our share of the Arizona cannabis market, as well as expand the geographical reach of our products into markets outside of Arizona, with the ultimate goal of providing comfortable cannabis health solutions to a larger population in a manner that will create value for our shareholders.

We will expand into other markets through various methods, and will utilize strategic partnerships as necessary to provide the synergies to assist in our growth. As part of this expansion plan, we acquired land in Pahrump, Nevada to build our second production facility. Through partnerships, we obtained cultivation, production and distribution licenses in the state of Nevada. Additionally, we have plans to expand to an additional 6-8 markets by December 2019.

FINANCIAL CONDITION, LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our primary need for liquidity is to fund working capital requirements of our business, capital expenditures, acquisitions, debt service, and for general corporate purposes. Our primary source of liquidity is funds generated by financing activities and from private placements. Our ability to fund our operations, to make planned capital expenditures, to make planned acquisitions, to make scheduled debt payments, and to repay or refinance indebtedness depends on our future operating performance and cash flows, which are subject to prevailing economic conditions and financial, business and other factors, some of which are beyond our control.

 

As of June 30, 2019, the Company had $786,813 of cash and working capital of $968,590 (current assets minus current liabilities), compared with $1,674,266 of cash and $2,279,334 of working capital as of September 30, 2018. The decrease of $1,310,744 in our working capital and $887,453 in cash was primarily due to investing in construction projects in Arizona and Nevada totaling $4,797,374, acquisition outlays of $1,500,000 and increase in deferred costs of $988,914. This was offset by stock sales totaling $5,660,003 and the issuance of long term debt of $1,200,000. The Company is an early stage growth company. It is generating cash from sales and is investing its capital reserves in current operations and new acquisitions that will generate additional earnings in the long term. The Company expects that its cash on hand and cash flows from operations, along with private and/or public financing, will be adequate to meet its capital requirements and operational needs for the next 12 months.

These estimates may change significantly depending on the nature of our future business activities, expansion rollout, identification of suitable acquisition targets, and our ability to raise capital necessary to conduct the aforementioned activities. We further anticipate incurring additional costs and expenses for accounting, legal, and other miscellaneous fees relating to compliance with SEC requirements and the filing of the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part.

Given that our cash needs are strongly driven by our growth requirements, we also intend to maintain a cash reserve for other risk contingencies that may arise.

 

We intend to meet our cash requirements for the next 12 months through the use of the cash we have on hand and through business operations, future equity financing, debt financing, or other sources, which may result in further dilution in the equity ownership of our shares. We currently do not have any other arrangements in place to complete any private placement financings and there is no assurance that we will be successful in completing any such financings on terms that will be acceptable to us.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We are not currently a party to, or otherwise involved with, any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future material effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

 

Critical Accounting Policies


The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and the Company’s discussion and analysis of its financial condition and operating results require the Company’s management to make judgments, assumptions and estimates that affect the amounts reported in its consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Note 1, “Description of Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies,” of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in this Form 10, describes the significant accounting policies and methods used in the preparation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities. Actual results may differ from these estimates, and such differences may be material.

 

Management believes the Company’s critical accounting policies and estimates are those related to revenue recognition. Management considers these policies critical because they are both important to the portrayal of the Company’s financial condition and operating results, and they require management to make judgments and estimates about inherently uncertain matters. The Company’s management has reviewed these critical accounting policies and related disclosures.

 

Principles of Consolidation  – The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiaries and variable interest entities in which the Company is the primary beneficiary. Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

 

  18  

 

Use of Estimates  – The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) in the United States of America 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 revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. Significant estimates of the Company include estimated useful lives of property and equipment, deferred income taxes, accruals and contingencies, goodwill, the fair value of common stock provided as consideration and the estimated fair value of stock options and warrants.

 

Cash  – Cash represents cash on hand, demand deposits placed with banks and other financial institutions and all highly liquid instruments purchased with a remaining maturity of three months or less as of the purchase date of such investments. The Company maintains cash on deposit, which, can exceed federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses on such accounts nor believes it is exposed to any significant credit risk on cash.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments  – The carrying value of the Company’s financial instruments, consisting of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximate fair value due to their short term to maturity.  The Company’s long-term receivable resulting from the sale of Airware was discounted to its estimated fair value on the date.

 

Revenue  – The majority of the Company’s revenue is associated with a customer contract that represents an obligation to perform services that are delivered at a single point in time.  Any costs incurred prior to the period in which the services are performed to completion are deferred and recognized as cost of services in the period in which the performance obligations are completed. Since the Company’s revenue is generated from one customer contract, the Company does not have material contract assets or liabilities that fall under ASC 606. As of June 30, 2019 and 2018, 90% of the Company’s revenues was generated for performance obligations completed in the State of Arizona.

 

Intangible Assets Subject to Amortization  – Intangible assets include trade name, customer relationships, website, and intellectual property obtained through a business acquisition. Intangible assets acquired in a business combination are recognized at fair value using generally accepted valuation methods deemed appropriate for the type of intangible assets acquired. Intangible assets with finite lives are amortized over their estimated useful life and are reported net of accumulated amortization, separately from goodwill.

 

Goodwill  – Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price paid for the acquisition of a business over the fair value of the net tangible and intangible assets acquired. Goodwill is not subject to amortization and is tested annually for impairment, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of goodwill may not be recoverable.

 

Income Taxes  – The Company accounts for income taxes under FASB ASC 740,  Income Taxes . Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based upon differences between financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities, and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse.

 

The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and the State of Arizona. The Company is subject to U.S. federal, state, and local income tax examinations by tax authorities. All periods beginning on or after January 1, 2014 are open to examination by taxing authorities. The Company believes it has no tax positions for which the ultimate deductibility is highly uncertain.

 

Stock-Based Compensation  – The Company follows the guidelines in FASB Codification Topic ASC 718-10 “ Compensation-Stock Compensation ”, which requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all share-based payment awards made to employees and directors including employee stock options and employee stock purchases related to an Employee Stock Purchase Plan based on the estimated fair values. 

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share  – Basic earnings per share does not include dilution and is computed by dividing loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings of an entity. Dilutive securities are not included in the weighted average number of shares when inclusion would be anti-dilutive. At June 30, 2019, there were 646,008 shares underlying convertible notes payable, warrants and options.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

We do not expect the adoption of any recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a significant impact on our net results of operations, financial position, or cash flows.

 

Seasonality

 

We do not expect our sales to be impacted by seasonal demands for our products and services. Also, due to the fact we use indoor grow space, seasonality should not have any impact on our cultivation operations.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 


Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by our company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our management carried out an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 ("Exchange Act"). Based upon that evaluation, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of June 30, 2019

 

  Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f). Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on criteria established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework (2013) issued by COSO. Internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that (a) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company; (b) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of the our management and directors; and (c) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Based on our evaluation under the framework described above, our management concluded that we had “material weaknesses” (as such term is defined below) in our control environment and financial reporting process consisting of the following as of the Evaluation Date:

 

  1) Audit Committee. Our audit committee was formed in June 2019. The committee has not had sufficient time to have effective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal control and procedures; however, we anticipate that by close of fiscal 2019 our committee will become effective; and
     
  2) Due to the size of the Company and available resources, there are limited personnel to assist with the accounting and financial reporting function, which results in a lack of segregation of duties.
     
  3)   We did not implement appropriate information technology controls – As at June 30, 2019, the Company retains copies of all financial data and material agreements; however there is no formal procedure or evidence of normal backup of the Company's data or off-site storage of data in the event of theft, misplacement, or loss due to unmitigated factors.

 

A “material weakness” is defined under SEC rules as 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 a company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis by the company’s internal controls.

 

A system of controls, no matter how well designed and operated, cannot provide absolute assurance that the objectives of the system of controls are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting subsequent to the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018, which were identified in connection with our management’s evaluation required by paragraph (d) of rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

The Company is not required by current SEC rules to include, and does not include, an auditor's attestation report. The Company's registered public accounting firm has not attested to Management's reports on the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

  

Limitations of the Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls and Internal Controls

 

 Our management, including our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and internal controls will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of a simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the control.

 

The design of any system of controls is also based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving our stated goals under all potential future conditions; over time, a control may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Because of inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

From time to time, the Company may become subject to various legal proceedings that are incidental to the ordinary conduct of its business. Although the Company cannot accurately predict the amount of any liability that may ultimately arise with respect to any of these matters, it makes provision for potential liabilities when it deems them probable and reasonably estimable. These provisions are based on current information and legal advice and may be adjusted from time to time according to developments.

 

We know of no material, existing or pending legal proceedings against our Company, nor are we involved as a plaintiff in any material proceeding or pending litigation. There are no proceedings in which any director, officer or any affiliates, or any registered or beneficial shareholder, is an adverse party or has a material interest adverse to our interest.
