Notes to the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
September 30, 2020

(Unaudited)

 

 

NOTE 1: ORGANIZATION AND GOING CONCERN

 

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from its shareholders, the ability of management to raise additional equity capital through private and public offerings of its common stock, and the attainment of profitable operations. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $182,116,945. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of one year from the issuance of these financial statements. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. We may continue to incur operating and net losses in future periods. These losses may increase, and we may never achieve profitability for a variety of reasons, including increased competition, decreased growth in the unified advertising industry and other factors described elsewhere in the “Risk Factors” section of our form 10-k for the year ended December 31, 2019. If we cannot achieve sustained profitability, our stockholders may lose all or a portion of their investment in our company.

 

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. The recently acquired Advangelists LLC has also incurred losses and experienced negative cash flows from operations during the most recent fiscal year. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from its shareholders, the ability of management to raise additional capital through private and public offerings of its common stock, and the attainment of profitable operations. These financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Impacts of COVID-19 to Business and the general economy

  

COVID -19 has recently caused a material and substantial adverse impact on our general economy and our business operations. It has caused there to be a substantial decrease in our sales, cancellations of purchase orders and has resulted in accounts receivables not being timely paid as anticipated. Further, it has caused us to have concerns about our ability to meet our obligations as they become due and payable. In this respect, our business is directly dependent upon and correlates closely to the marketing levels and ongoing business activities of our existing clients. If material adverse developments in domestic and global economic and market conditions adversely affect our clients’ businesses, such as COVID-19, our business and results of operations could (and in the case of COVID-19) equally suffer. Our results of operations are affected directly by the level of business activity of our clients, which in turn is affected by the level of economic activity in the industries and markets that they serve. COVID-19 future widespread economic slowdowns in any of these markets, particularly in the United States, may negatively affect the businesses, purchasing decisions and spending of our clients and prospective clients, and payment of accounts receivable due us, which could result in reductions in our existing business as well as our new business development and difficulties in meeting our cash obligations as they become due. In the event of continued widespread economic downturn caused by COVID-19, we will likely experience a reduction in current projects, longer sales and collection cycles, deferral or delay of purchase commitments for our data products, processing functionality, software systems and services, and increased price competition, all of which could substantially adversely affect revenue and our ability to remain a going concern.

In the event we remain a going concern, the impacts of the global emergence of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on our business, sources of revenues and then general economy, are currently not fully known. We are conducting business as usual with some modifications to employee work locations, and cancellation of certain marketing events, among other modifications. We lost millions of dollars in orders with organization directly related the COVID-19 pandemic. We have observed other companies taking precautionary and preemptive actions to address COVID-19 and companies may take further actions that alter their normal business operations. We will continue to actively monitor the situation and may take further actions that alter our business operations as may be required by federal, state or local authorities or that we determine are in the best interests of our employees, customers, partners, suppliers and stockholders. It is not clear what the potential effects any such alterations or modifications may have on our business, including the effects on our customers and prospects, although we do anticipate it to negatively impact our financial results during fiscal year 2020.

 

REVERSE STOCK SPLIT - On September 29, 2020, the Company completed a 1-for-400 reverse stock split. All shares and per share amounts in this Form 10-Q give retroactive effect to the reverse stock split as if the stock split had occurred prior to the applicable reporting period

 

PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION - The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Mobiquity Technologies, Inc., formerly known as Ace Marketing & Promotions, Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiary, Mobiquity Networks, Inc. and its wholly- owned subsidiary, Advangelists, LLC, which subsidiary was 48% owned in the quarter ended March 31, 2019. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The Condensed consolidated balance sheets as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Condensed consolidated statements of stockholders’ equity for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 and the Condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 have been prepared by us without audit, and in accordance with the requirements of Form 10-Q and, therefore, they do not include all information and footnotes necessary for a fair presentation of financial position, results of operations, and cash flows in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In our opinion, the accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements contain all adjustments necessary to present fairly in all material respects our financial position as of September 30, 2020, results of operations for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The results of operations and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. We have evaluated subsequent events through the filing of this Form 10-Q with the SEC and determined there have not been any events that have occurred that would require adjustments to our unaudited Condensed consolidated financial statements.

Risks Related to Our Financial Results and Financing Plans

 

Management has plans to address the Company’s financial situation as follows:

 

In the near term, management plans to continue to focus on raising the funds necessary to implement the Company’s business plan related to technology. Management will continue to seek out equity and/or debt financing to obtain the capital required to meet the Company’s financial obligations. There is no assurance, however, that lenders and investors will continue to advance capital to the Company or that the new business operations will be profitable.

 

In the long term, management believes that the Company’s projects and initiatives will be successful and will provide cash flow to the Company that will be used to finance the Company’s future growth. However, there can be no assurances that the Company’s efforts to raise equity and debt at acceptable terms or that the planned activities will be successful, or that the Company will ultimately attain profitability. The Company’s long-term viability depends on its ability to obtain adequate sources of debt or equity funding to meet current commitments and fund the continuation of its business operations, and the ability of the Company to achieve adequate profitability and cash flows from operations to sustain its operations.

Related Parties

 

Related parties are any entities or individuals that, through employment, ownership or other means, possess the ability to direct or cause the direction of the management and policies of the Company. We disclose related party transactions that are outside of normal compensatory agreements, such as salaries or board of director fees. We consider the following individuals / companies to be related parties:

 

Dean Julia – Principal Executive Officer President and Director

Sean McDonnell – Chief Financial Officer

Sean Trepeta – Board of Directors

Deepankar Katyal – Principal Officer

Dr. Eugene Salkind – Board of Directors

 

ESTIMATES - The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles 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.

  

FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

The Company measures assets and liabilities at fair value based on an expected exit price as defined by the authoritative guidance on fair value measurements, which represents the amount that would be received on the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability, as the case may be, in an orderly transaction between market participants. As such, fair value may be based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. The authoritative guidance on fair value measurements establishes a consistent framework for measuring fair value on either a recurring or nonrecurring basis whereby inputs, used in valuation techniques, are assigned a hierarchical level.

 

The following are the hierarchical levels of inputs to measure fair value:

 

  · Level 1 - Observable inputs that reflect quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
  · Level 2 - Inputs reflect quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the assets or liabilities; or inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.
  · Level 3 - Unobservable inputs reflecting the Company's assumptions incorporated in valuation techniques used to determine fair value. These assumptions are required to be consistent with market participant assumptions that are reasonably available.

 

The carrying amounts of the Company's financial assets and liabilities, such as cash, prepaid expenses, other current assets, accounts payable & accrued expenses, certain notes payable and notes payable - related party, convertible debt, approximate their fair values because of the short maturity of these instruments for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and for the years ended December 31, 2019.

 

    Level 1     Level 2     Level 3     Total  
Fair value of derivatives   $     $     $     $  

 

 

 

 

  12  

 

 

EMBEDDED CONVERSION FEATURES

 

The Company evaluates embedded conversion features within convertible debt under ASC 815 "Derivatives and Hedging" to determine whether the embedded conversion feature(s) should be bifurcated from the host instrument and accounted for as a derivative at fair value with changes in fair value recorded in earnings. If the conversion feature does not require derivative treatment under ASC 815, the instrument is evaluated under ASC 470-20 "Debt with Conversion and Other Options" for consideration of any beneficial conversion feature. 

  

CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS - The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments with a maturity of three months or less, as well as bank money market accounts, to be cash equivalents. As of September 30, 2020, and December 31, 2019, the balances are $539,757 and $1,240,064, respectively.

 

CONCENTRATION OF CREDIT RISK - Financial instruments, which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk, consist principally of trade receivables and cash and cash equivalents.

 

Concentration of credit risk with respect to trade receivables is generally diversified due to the large number of entities comprising the Company’s customer base and their dispersion across geographic areas principally within the United States. The Company routinely addresses the financial strength of its customers and, consequently, believes that its receivable credit risk exposure is limited. Our current receivables at December 31, 2019 consist of 47% held by four of our largest customers. Our September 30, 2020 receivables consist of 48% held by four of our largest customers.

 

The Company places its temporary cash investments with high credit quality financial institutions. At times, the Company maintains bank account balances, which exceed FDIC limits. As of September 30, 2020, and December 31, 2019, the Company exceeded FDIC limits by $0 and $749,037, respectively.

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION – On May 28, 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“Topic 606”), to update the financial reporting requirements for revenue recognition. Topic 606 outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. The guidance is based on the principle that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance also requires additional disclosure about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from customer contracts, including significant judgments and changes in judgments and assets recognized from costs incurred to fulfill a contract. This guidance became effective for the Company beginning on January 1, 2018, and entities have the option of using either a full retrospective or a modified retrospective approach for the adoption of the new standard. The Company adopted this standard using the modified retrospective approach on January 1, 2018.

 

In preparation for adoption of the standard, the Company evaluated each of the five steps in Topic 606, which are as follows: 1) Identify the contract with the customer; 2) Identify the performance obligations in the contract; 3) Determine the transaction price; 4) Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations; and 5) Recognize revenue when (or as) performance obligations are satisfied.

 

Reported revenue was not affected materially in any period due to the adoption of ASC Topic 606 because: (1) the Company expects to identify similar performance obligations under Topic 606 as compared with deliverables and separate units of account previously identified; (2) the Company has determined the transaction price to be consistent; and (3) the Company records revenue at the same point in time, upon delivery of services, under both ASC Topic 605 and Topic 606, as applicable under the terms of the contract with the customer. Additionally, the Company does not expect the accounting for fulfillment costs or costs incurred to obtain a contract to be affected materially in any period due to the adoption of Topic 606.

ALLOWANCE FOR DOUBTFUL ACCOUNTS - Management must make estimates of the collectability of accounts receivable. Management specifically analyzes accounts receivable and analyzes historical bad debts, customer concentrations, customer creditworthiness, current economic trends and changes in customer payment terms when evaluating the adequacy of the allowance for doubtful accounts. As of September 30, 2020, and December 31, 2019, allowance for doubtful accounts were $386,600 and $80,600, respectively. It is currently unclear how customer payments will be affected by the COVID-19 crisis, although we are seeing a significant slowdown in accounts receivable collections.

 

PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT - Property and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation is expensed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets. Leasehold improvements are being amortized using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets or the remaining term of the lease. The costs of additions and improvements, which substantially extend the useful life of a particular asset, are capitalized. Repair and maintenance costs are charged to expense. When assets are sold or otherwise disposed of, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the account and the gain or loss on disposition is reflected in operating income.

 

LONG LIVED ASSETS – In accordance with ASC 360, “Property, Plant and Equipment”, the Company tests long-lived assets or asset groups for recoverability when events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying amount may not be recoverable. Circumstances which could trigger a review include, but are not limited to: significant decreases in the market price of the asset; significant adverse changes in the business climate or legal factors; accumulation of costs significantly in excess of the amount originally expected for the acquisition or construction of the asset; current period cash flow or operating losses combined with a history of losses or a forecast of continuing losses associated with the use of the asset; and current expectation that the asset will more likely than not be sold or disposed significantly before the end of its estimated useful life. Recoverability is assessed based on the carrying amount of the asset and its fair value, which is generally determined based on the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and the eventual disposal of the asset, as well as specific appraisal in certain instances. An impairment loss is recognized when the carrying amount is not recoverable and exceeds fair value. The Company recognized no impairment losses for the period ended September 30, 2020.

 

Transactions with major customers

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, four customers accounted for approximately 48% of revenues as compared to 52% of revenues for four customers for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

 

ADVERTISING COSTS - Advertising costs are expensed as incurred. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019, there were advertising costs of $929 and $9,746, respectively.

 

ACCOUNTING FOR STOCK BASED COMPENSATION. Stock based compensation cost is measured at the grant date fair value of the award and is recognized as expense over the requisite service period. The Company uses the Black-Sholes option-pricing model to determine fair value of the awards, which involves certain subjective assumptions. These assumptions include estimating the length of time employees will retain their vested stock options before exercising them (“expected term”), the estimated volatility of the Company’s common stock price over the expected term (“volatility”) and the number of options for which vesting requirements will not be completed (“forfeitures”). Changes in the subjective assumptions can materially affect estimates of fair value stock-based compensation, and the related amount recognized on the consolidated statements of operations. Refer to Note 7 “Stock Option Plans” in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in this report for a more detailed discussion.

 

BENEFICIAL CONVERSION FEATURES - Debt instruments that contain a beneficial conversion feature are recorded as deemed interest to the holders of the convertible debt instruments. The beneficial conversion is calculated as the difference between the fair values of the underlying common stock less the proceeds that have been received for the debt instrument limited to the value received.

 

  

 

 

  14  

 

 

INCOME TAXES - Deferred income taxes are recognized for temporary differences between financial statement and income tax basis of assets and liabilities for which income tax or tax benefits are expected to be realized in future years. A valuation allowance is established to reduce deferred tax assets, if it is more likely than not, that all or some portion of such deferred tax assets will not be realized. The effect on deferred taxes of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

We adopted the lease standard ACS 842 effective January 1, 2019 and have elected to use January 1, 2019 as our date of initial application. Consequently, financial information will not be updated, and disclosures required under the new standard will not be provided for periods presented before January 1, 2019 as these prior periods conform to the Accounting Standards Codification 840. We elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard. By adopting these practical expedients, we were not required to reassess (1) whether an existing contract meets the definition of a lease; (2) the lease classification for existing leases; or (3) costs previously capitalized as initial direct costs. As of December 10, 2019, we are not a lessor or lessee under any lease arrangements.

 

We have reviewed the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) accounting pronouncements and interpretations thereof that have effectiveness dates during the periods reported and in future periods. The Company has carefully considered the new pronouncements that alter previous generally accepted accounting principles and does not believe that any new or modified principles will have a material impact on the corporation’s reported financial position or operations in the near term. The applicability of any standard is subject to the formal review of our financial management and certain standards are under consideration.

 

The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect and that may impact its financial statements and does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or result of operations.

 

NET LOSS PER SHARE

 

Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing income available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share reflect, in periods in which they have a dilutive effect, the impact of common shares issuable upon exercise of stock options and warrants. The number of common shares potentially issuable upon the exercise of certain options and warrants that were excluded from the diluted loss per common share calculation was approximately 769,794 because they are anti-dilutive, as a result of a net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

  · At any time at the option of the Lenders, the outstanding principal under the Notes will be converted into shares of common stock of the Company at a conversion price of $32.00 per post-split share (the “Conversion Price”).

 

  · at any time that the trailing thirty (30) day volume weighted average price per share (as more particularly described in the Notes) of the Company’s common stock is above $400.00 per share, until the Notes are no longer outstanding, the Company may convert the entire unpaid un-converted principal amount of the Notes, plus all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, into shares of the Company’s common stock at the Conversion Price.

 

The Notes contain customary events of default, which, if uncured, entitle the Lenders thereof to accelerate the due date of the unpaid principal amount of, and all accrued and unpaid interest on, their Notes.

In connection with the subscription of the Notes, the Company issued to each Lender a warrant to purchase 400 post-split shares of the Company’s common stock for every two shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes, at an exercise price of $48.00 per p0ost-split share (the “Lender Warrants”).

 

On September 13, 2019, Advangelists, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“AVNG”), entered into Amendment No. 1 to Employment Agreement (the “Katyal Amendment”) with Deepankar Katyal, who is a related party and the CEO of AVNG, which amends Mr. Katyal’s original employment agreement (the “Original Katyal Agreement”), dated as of December 7, 2018. Pursuant to the Katyal Amendment, among other things, (i) the Company agreed to indemnify Mr. Katyal to the extent provided in the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate”) and By-laws and to include Mr. Katyal as an insured under the Company’s applicable directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policies; (ii) AVNG agreed to provide Mr. Katyal with an automobile allowance of $550.00 per month, and (iii) the non-compete restrictive covenants contained in the Original Katyal Agreement ceased. In addition, the Katyal Amendment provides for the Company to redeem the shares of the Company’s Class B Preferred Stock (the “Class B Stock”) owned by Mr. Katyal, and entitles Mr. Katyal to the following additional compensation:

In May 2019, the Company assumed a promissory note (the “AVNG Note”) payable to Deepankar Katyal (the “Payee”), as representative of the former owners of AVNG, which at the time of assumption had a remaining principal balance of $7,512,500. Simultaneously with the assumption of the AVNG Note, the AVNG Note was amended and restated as disclosed in the May 8-K (the “First Amended AVNG Note”). Effective as of September 13, 2019, the Company and Payee entered into a Second Amended and Restated Promissory Note (the “Second Amended AVNG Note”), in the principal amount of $6,750,000, pursuant to which the repayment terms under the First Amended AVNG Note were amended and restated as follows:

Merger

 

Mobiquity entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Glen Eagles Acquisition LP (“GEAL”) (which at the time owned 412,000 post-split shares of common stock of Mobiquity, equivalent to approximately 29.6% of the outstanding shares), AVNG Acquisition Sub, LLC (“Merger Sub”) and Advangelists, LLC (“Advangelists”) on November 20, 2018 which provided for Merger Sub to merge into Advangelists, with Advangelists as the surviving company following the merger.

 

On December 6, 2018, Mobiquity and the other parties to the Merger Agreement entered into the First Amendment to Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Amendment”) which amended the Merger Agreement as follows:

 

  · The number of warrants to purchase shares of Mobiquity’s common stock issuable as part of the merger consideration was changed from 225,000 post-split shares to 269,385 post-split shares, and the exercise price of the warrants was changed from $36.00 per share to $56.00 per share; and

 

  · The number of shares of Gopher Protocol Inc.’s common stock to be transferred by Mobiquity as part of the merger consideration changed from 11,111,111 to 9,209,722 shares.

 

Under the Merger Agreement and the Amendment, in consideration for the Merger:

 

  · Mobiquity issued warrants for 269,384 post-split shares of Mobiquity common stock at an exercise price of $56.00 per share and, subject to the vesting threshold described below, Mobiquity transferred 9,209,722 shares of Gopher Protocol, Inc. common stock, to the pre-merger Advangelists members. The Gopher common stock was unvested at the time of transfer subject to vesting in February 2019 only if Advangelists’ combined revenues for the months of December 2018 and January 2019 were at least $250,000. The vesting threshold was met.
     
  · GEAL paid the pre-merger Advangelists members $10 million in cash. $500,000 was paid at closing and $9,500,000 will be paid under a promissory note that was issued at closing, in 19 monthly installments of $500,000 each, commencing on January 6, 2019.

  

The transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement were consummated on December 7, 2018 upon the filing of a Certificate of Merger by Advangelists. As a result of the merger, Mobiquity owned 48% and GEAL owned 52% of Advangelists; and Mobiquity is the sole manager of, and controls, Advangelists at that time.

 

As a result of Mobiquity having 100% control over Advangelists as of December 31, 2018, ASC 810-10-05-3 states “that for LLCs with managing and non-managing members, a managing member is the functional equivalent of a general partner and a non-managing member is the functional equivalent of a limited partner. In this case, a reporting entity with an interest in an LLC (which is not a VIE) would likely apply the consolidation model for limited partnerships if the managing member has the right to make the significant operating and financial decisions of the LLC.” In this case Mobiquity has the right to make the significant operating and financial decisions of Advangelists resulting in consolidation of Advangelists. 

 

On April 30, 2019, the Company entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement with GEAL, pursuant to which the Company acquired from GEAL 3% of the membership interests of Advangelists, for cash in the amount of $600,000 (the “Purchase Price”). The Purchase Price was paid by the Company to GEAL on May 3, 2019. As a result of the Transaction, the Company then owned 51% of the membership interests of Advangelists, with GEAL owning 49% of the membership interests of Advangelists.

On May 10, 2019, the Company entered into a Membership Purchase Agreement effective as of May 8, 2019 with Gopher Protocol, Inc. to acquire the 49% interest of Advangelists, which it contemporaneously purchased from GEAL. As a result of this transaction, the Company owns 100% of Advangelists’s Membership Interests.

 

The acquisition of the 49% of Advangelists membership interests was accomplished in a transaction involving Mobiquity, Glen Eagles Acquisition LP, and Gopher Protocol, Inc.

The Company tests goodwill for impairment at least annually on December 31st and whenever events or circumstances change that indicate impairment may have occurred. A significant amount of judgement is involved in determining if an indicator of impairment has occurred. Such indicators may include, among others: a significant decline in the Company’s expected future cash flows; a significant adverse change in legal factors or in the business climate; unanticipated competition; and slower growth rates. Any adverse change in these factors could have a significant impact on the recoverability of goodwill and the Company’s consolidated financial results.

 

Our goodwill balance is not amortized to expense, instead it is tested for impairment at least annually. We perform our annual goodwill impairment analysis at the end of the fourth quarter. If events or indicators of impairment occur between annual impairment analyses, we perform an impairment analysis of goodwill at that date. These events or circumstances could include a significant change in the business climate, legal factors, operating performance indicators, competition, or sale or disposition of a significant asset. In testing for a potential impairment of goodwill, we: (1) verify there are no changes to our reporting units with goodwill balances; (2) allocate goodwill to our various reporting units to which the acquired goodwill relates; (3) determine the carrying value, or book value, of our reporting units, as some of the assets and liabilities related to each reporting unit are held by a corporate function; (4) estimate the fair value of each reporting unit using a discounted cash flow model; (5) reconcile the fair value of our reporting units in total to our market capitalization adjusted for a subjectively estimated control premium and other identifiable factors; (6) compare the fair value of each reporting unit to its carrying value; and (7) if the estimated fair value of a reporting unit is less than the carrying value, we must estimate the fair value of all identifiable assets and liabilities of that reporting unit, in a manner similar to a purchase price allocation for an acquired business to calculate the implied fair value of the reporting unit’s goodwill and recognize an impairment charge if the implied fair value of the reporting unit’s goodwill is less than the carrying value. There were no impairment charges during the year ended December 31, 2019 or the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Intangible Assets

 

At each balance sheet date herein, definite-lived intangible assets primarily consist of customer relationships which are being amortized over their estimated useful lives of five years.

 

The Company periodically evaluates the reasonableness of the useful lives of these assets. Once these assets are fully amortized, they will be removed from the accounts. These assets are reviewed for impairment or obsolescence when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. If impaired, intangible assets are written down to fair value based on discounted cash flows or other valuation techniques. The Company has no intangibles with indefinite lives.

  · at any time that the trailing thirty (30) day volume weighted average price per share (as more particularly described in the Notes) of the Company’s common stock is above $400.00 per share, until the Notes are no longer outstanding, the Company may convert the entire unpaid un-converted principal amount of the Notes, plus all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, into shares of the Company’s common stock at the Conversion Price.

 

The Notes contain customary events of default, which, if uncured, entitle the Lenders thereof to accelerate the due date of the unpaid principal amount of, and all accrued and unpaid interest on, their Notes.

 

In connection with the subscription of the Notes, the Company issued to each Lender a warrant to purchase one share of the Company’s common stock for every two shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes, at an exercise price of $48.00 per post-split share (the “Lender Warrants”).

 

On May 16, 2019, the Company assumed a promissory note (the “AVNG Note”) payable to Deepankar Katyal (the “Payee”), as representative of the former owners of AVNG, which at the time of assumption had a remaining principal balance of $7,512,500. Simultaneously with the assumption of the AVNG Note, the AVNG Note was amended and restated (the “First Amended AVNG Note”). Effective as of September 13, 2019, the Company and Payee entered into a Second Amended and Restated Promissory Note (the “Second Amended AVNG Note”), in the principal amount of $6,750,000, pursuant to which the repayment terms under the First Amended AVNG Note were amended and restated as follows:

 

  · $5,250,000 of the principal balance remaining due under the Second Amended AVNG Note is payable by the delivery of (i) 65,625 shares of the Company’s newly designated Class E Preferred Stock, which is convertible into 164,063 post-split shares the Company’s common stock, and (ii) common stock purchase warrants to purchase 82,031 post-split shares of the Company’s common stock, at an exercise price of $48.00 per share (the “AVNG Warrant”).

 

  · $1,530,000 of the principal balance, inclusive of all accrued and unpaid interest, remaining due under the Second Amended AVNG Note in three equal consecutive monthly installments of $510,000, commencing on September 15, 2019 and on the 15th day of each month thereafter until paid in full.

 

The Second Amended AVNG Note provides that upon an Event of Default (as defined in the Second Amended AVNG Note), and upon the election of the Payee, (i) the shares of Class E Preferred Stock issuable pursuant to the terms of the Second Amended AVNG Note, and any shares of the Company’s common stock issued upon the conversion of the Class E Preferred Stock, shall be cancelled and cease to issued and outstanding, (ii) the AVNG Warrants (as defined below), to the extent unexercised, shall be cancelled, and (iii) the Second Amended AVNG Note shall be cancelled and the repayment of the principal amount remaining due to Payee shall be paid in accordance with the terms of the First Amended AVNG Note.

FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS- The Company measures assets and liabilities at fair value based on an expected exit price as defined by the authoritative guidance on fair value measurements, which represents the amount that would be received on the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability, as the case may be, in an orderly transaction between market participants. As such, fair value may be based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. The authoritative guidance on fair value measurements establishes a consistent framework for measuring fair value on either a recurring or nonrecurring basis whereby inputs, used in valuation techniques, are assigned a hierarchical level. 

 

The following are the hierarchical levels of inputs to measure fair value:

 

  · Level 1 - Observable inputs that reflect quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
     
  · Level 2 - Inputs reflect quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the assets or liabilities; or inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.
     
  · Level 3 - Unobservable inputs reflecting the Company's assumptions incorporated in valuation techniques used to determine fair value. These assumptions are required to be consistent with market participant assumptions that are reasonably available.

 

The carrying amounts of the Company's financial assets and liabilities, such as cash, prepaid expenses, other current assets, accounts payable & accrued expenses, certain notes payable and notes payable - related party, approximate their fair values because of the short maturity of these instruments. 

 

NOTE 5: INCOME TAXES

 

The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability method in accordance with ASC 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes”. The asset and liability method provides that deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities, and for operating loss and tax credit carry forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using the currently enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. The Company records a valuation allowance to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount that is believed more likely than not to be realized.

 

The Company conducts business, and files federal and state income, franchise or net worth, tax returns in the United States, in various states within the United States. The Company determines it’s filing obligations in a jurisdiction in accordance with existing statutory and case law. The Company may be subject to a reassessment of federal and provincial income taxes by tax authorities for a period of three years from the date of the original notice of assessment in respect of any particular taxation year statutes of limitations for income tax assessment vary from state to state. Tax authorities of the U.S. have not audited any of the Company’s, or its subsidiaries’, income tax returns for the open taxation years.

NOTE 8: STOCK OPTION PLANS

 

During Fiscal 2005, the Company established, and the stockholders approved, an Employee Benefit and Consulting Services Compensation Plan (the “2005 Plan”) for the granting of up to 5,000 post-split non-statutory and incentive stock options and stock awards to directors, officers, consultants and key employees of the Company. On June 9, 2005, the Board of Directors amended the Plan to increase the number of stock options and awards to be granted under the Plan to 10,000 post-split shares. During Fiscal 2009, the Company established a plan of long-term stock-based compensation incentives for selected Eligible Participants of the Company covering 10,0000 post-split shares. This plan was adopted by the Board of Directors and approved by stockholders in October 2009 and shall be known as the 2009 Employee Benefit and Consulting Services Compensation Plan (the “2009 Plan”). In September 2013, the Company’s stockholders approved an increase in the number of shares covered by the 2009 Plan to 25,000 post-split shares. In February 2015, the Board approved, subject to stockholder approval within one year, an increase in the number of shares under the 2009 Plan to 50,000 post-split shares; however, stockholder approval was not obtained within the requisite one year and the anticipated increase in the 2009 Plan was canceled. In the first quarter of 2016, the Board approved, and stockholders ratified a 2016 Employee Benefit and Consulting Services Compensation Plan covering 25,000 post-split shares (the “2016 Plan”) and approving moving all options which exceeded the 2009 Plan limits to the 2016 Plan. In December 2018, the Board of Directors adopted and in February 2019. the stockholders ratified the 2018 Employee Benefit and Consulting Services Compensation Plan covering 75,000 post-split shares (the “2018 Plan”). On April 2, 2019, the Board approved the “2019 Plan” identical to the 2018 Plan, except that the 2019 Plan covers 150,000 post-split shares. The 2019 Plan required stockholder approval by April 2, 2020 in order to be able to grant incentive stock options under the 2019 Plan. The 2005, 2009, 2016, 2018 and 2019 plans are collectively referred to as the “Plans.”

 

All stock options under the Plans are granted at or above the fair market value of the common stock at the grant date. Employee and non-employee stock options vest over varying periods and generally expire either 5 or 10 years from the grant date. The fair value of options at the date of grant was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. For option grants, the Company will take into consideration payments subject to the provisions of ASC 718 “Stock Compensation”, previously Revised SFAS No. 123 “Share-Based Payment” (“SFAS 123 (R)”). The fair values of these restricted stock awards are equal to the market value of the Company’s stock on the date of grant, after taking into certain discounts. The expected volatility is based upon historical volatility of our stock and other contributing factors. The expected term is based upon observation of actual time elapsed between date of grant and exercise of options for all employees. Previously, such assumptions were determined based on historical data. The weighted average assumptions made in calculating the fair values of options granted during the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019 are as follows:

 

    Three Months Ended
September 30
    Nine Months Ended

The weighted-average grant-date fair value of options granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was $0 and $0, respectively.

 

The aggregate intrinsic value of options outstanding and options exercisable at September 30, 2020 is calculated as the difference between the exercise price of the underlying options and the market price of the Company's common stock for the shares that had exercise prices, that were lower than the $0 closing price of the Company's common stock on September 30, 2020.

 

As of September 30, 2020, the fair value of unamortized compensation cost related to unvested stock option awards is $1,093,630.

COVID 19

 

Impacts of COVID-19 to Business and the general economy

  

COVID -19 has recently caused a material and substantial adverse impact on our general economy and our business operations. It has caused there to be a substantial decrease in our sales, cancellations of purchase orders and has resulted in accounts receivables not being timely paid as anticipated. Further, it has caused us to have concerns about our ability to meet our obligations as they become due and payable. In this respect, our business is directly dependent upon and correlates closely to the marketing levels and ongoing business activities of our existing clients. If material adverse developments in domestic and global economic and market conditions adversely affect our clients’ businesses, such as COVID-19, our business and results of operations could (and in the case of COVID-19) equally suffer. Our results of operations are affected directly by the level of business activity of our clients, which in turn is affected by the level of economic activity in the industries and markets that they serve. COVID-19 future widespread economic slowdowns in any of these markets, particularly in the United States, may negatively affect the businesses, purchasing decisions and spending of our clients and prospective clients, and payment of accounts receivable due us, which could result in reductions in our existing business as well as our new business development and difficulties in meeting our cash obligations as they become due. In the event of continued widespread economic downturn caused by COVID-19, we will likely experience a reduction in current projects, longer sales and collection cycles, deferral or delay of purchase commitments for our data products, processing functionality, software systems and services, and increased price competition, all of which could substantially adversely affect revenue and our ability to remain a going concern.

 

In the event we remain a going concern, the impacts of the global emergence of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on our business, sources of revenues and then general economy, are currently not fully known. We are conducting business as usual with some modifications to employee work locations, and cancellation of certain marketing events, among other modifications. We lost a purchase order in excess of one million dollars with major US sports organization. We have observed other companies taking precautionary and preemptive actions to address COVID-19 and companies may take further actions that alter their normal business operations. We will continue to actively monitor the situation and may take further actions that alter our business operations as may be required by federal, state or local authorities or that we determine are in the best interests of our employees, customers, partners, suppliers and stockholders. It is not clear what the potential effects any such alterations or modifications may have on our business, including the effects on our customers and prospects, although we do anticipate it to negatively impact our financial results during fiscal year 2020.

 

As a result of our declining revenue, during the COVID-19 pandemic, our management team decided it was necessary to reduce overhead. The following steps were taken to lower expenses, while still keeping the business operational and ready to expand when needed; salaries were cut by approximately forty (40%) percent, several employees were laid-off, all travel was suspended and office space rent was suspended, allowing the entire staff to work remotely.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Revenue Recognition –The Company recognized revenue on arrangements in accordance with FASB Codification Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (“ASC Topic 606”). Under ASC Topic 606, revenue represents amounts earned for data licensing arrangements consisting of flat fee, per use basis or revenue share. Licensee is sent data on a daily basis, has use of data for a period of time based on the contract life between one month to one year. Revenue is recognized with the billing of an advertising contract or data sale. The customer signs a contract directly with us for an advertising campaign with mutually agreed upon term and is billed on the start date of the advertising campaign, which are normally in short duration periods. The second type of revenue is through the licensing of our data. Revenue from data can occur in two ways; the first is a direct feed, which is billed at the end of each month. The second way is through the purchasing of audience segments. When an audience segment is purchased, we bill the buyer upon delivery, which is usually 1-2 days for the order date.

 

 

 

 

  29  

 

 

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts. We are required to make judgments based on historical experience and future expectations, as to the realizability of our accounts receivable. We make these assessments based on the following factors: (a) historical experience, (b) customer concentrations, customer credit worthiness, (d) current economic conditions, and (e) changes in customer payment terms.

 

Accounting for Stock Based Compensation. Stock based compensation cost is measured at the grant date fair value of the award and is recognized as expense over the requisite service period. The company uses the Black-Sholes option-pricing model to determine fair value of the awards, which involves certain subjective assumptions. These assumptions include estimating the length of time employees will retain their vested stock options before exercising them (“expected term”), the estimated volatility of the company’s common stock price over the expected term (“volatility”) and the number of options for which vesting requirements will not be completed (“forfeitures”). Changes in the subjective assumptions can materially affect estimates of fair value stock-based compensation, and the related amount recognized on the consolidated statements of operations.

 

 

Plan of Operation

 

Mobiquity’s sales team will focus on Advertising Agencies, Brands and publishers to help increase both supply and demand across the Advangelists platform. The Advangelists platform creates three revenue streams for Mobiquity. The first is licensing the Advangelists platform as a white-label product for use by Advertising Agencies, DSP’s and Brands. Under the White-Label scenario, the user licenses the technology and is responsible for running its own business operations and is billed a percentage of volume run through the platform. The second revenue stream is a managed services model, in which, the user is billed a higher percentage of revenue run through the platform, but all services are managed by the Mobiquity/Advangelists team. The third revenue model is a seat model, whereas the user is billed a percentage of revenue run through the platform and business operations are shared between the user and the Mobiquity/Advangelists team. The goal of the sales team is to inform potential users of the benefits in efficiency and effectiveness of utilizing the end-to-end, fully integrated ATOS created by Advangelists.

 

Mobiquity Networks derives its revenue utilizing the revenue streams mentioned above. All the products used to derive revenue for the Company are reliant on accurate audience data. To achieve management’s revenue goals moving forward, we have developed a strategy to increase our audience data collection. One strategy is to partner with website and mobile application (apps) owners directly and offer our platforming services in exchange they would provide valuable first party audience data. The second strategy is to partner with various data compliant providers to increase our overall number of mobile devices available to use for audience targeting.

 

As of September 2020, we had approximately 6,500,000 Places in our proprietary Places database. We have been able to steadily increase the number of locations available in our Places database through the use of both open source and proprietary technologies. The task of growing our Places database is handled by our internal technology team. The Company currently utilizes both internal and outsourced resources to market and sell its product offerings.

We generated revenues of $1,429,696 in the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared to $2,800,174 in the same period for 2019, a change in revenues of $1,370,478. The nationwide economic shutdown due to COVID-19 during the first nine months of 2020 severely reduced operations at the end of the September of 2020.

 

Cost of revenues was $952,779 or 66.6% of revenues in the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared to 1,669,245 or 59.6% of revenues in the same fiscal period of 2019. Cost of revenues include web services for processing and storage of our data and web engineers who are building and maintaining our platforms. Our ability to capture, process and store data for sales does not translate to increased cost of sales.

 

Gross Income was $476,917 or 33.4% of revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared to $1,130,929 in the same fiscal period of 2019 or 40.3% of revenues. We believe when the country comes out of the COVID-19 crisis and the economy begins to turn around we should see a significant increase to income. Management believes there will be a surge in advertising spent in the fourth quarter, due to both traditional businesses reopening and the presidential election.

 

 

Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $2,708,382 for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $4,041,411 in the comparable period of the prior year, a decrease of approximately $1,333,029. Decreased operating costs include travel related costs $42,297 salaries of $364,291 and non-cash warrant expense of $486,150 and non-cash amortization costs of $1,825,411. The increased professional fees and interest expenses totaling $119,013 an increase in non-cash amortization costs of $500,000.

 

The net loss from operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 was $1,601,465 as compared to $2,910,482 for the comparable period of the prior year. The continuing operating loss is attributable to the focused effort in creating the infrastructure required to move forward with our Mobiquity and Advangelists network business. The nationwide economic shutdown due to COVID-19 during the first six months of 2020 severely reduced operations at the end of the September of 2020.

 

No benefit for income taxes is provided for in the reported periods due to the full valuation allowance on the net deferred tax assets. Our ability to be profitable in the future is dependent upon the successful introduction and usage of our data collection and analysis including Advertising, Data Licensing, Footfall Reporting, Attribution Reporting, Real Estate Planning, Financial Forecasting and Custom Research services.

We generated revenues of $3,032,064 in the first nine months of 2020 as compared to $6,647,668 for the same period for fiscal 2019, a change in revenues of $3,615,604. In 2019, with the acquisition of Advangelists LLC, we have implemented several new revenue streams from data collection and analysis including, but not limited to; Advertising, Data Licensing, Footfall Reporting, Attribution Reporting, Real Estate Planning, Financial Forecasting and Custom Research. The nationwide economic shutdown due to COVID-19 during the first nine months of 2020 severely reduced operations at the end of the September of 2020.

Cost of revenues was $2,612,690 or 86.2% of revenues in the first six months of 2020 as compared to 3,830,389 or 57.6% of revenues in the same fiscal period of fiscal 2019. Cost of revenues include web services for storage of our data and web engineers who are building and maintaining our platforms. The generated savings, on a percentage basis, arise with our increased sales. Our ability to capture and store data for sales does not translate to increased cost of sales.

 

Gross Income was $419,374 or 13.8% of revenues for the first nine months of 2019 as compared to $2,817,279 in the same fiscal period of 2019 or 42.4% of revenues. As revenues from the use of our technology’s increases, it is expected that our margins will increase significantly.

 

Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $8,013,595 for the first nine months of fiscal 2020 compared to $15,679,883 in the comparable period of the prior year, a decrease of approximately $7,666,288. Such operating cost decreases include payroll, rent, salaries and commissions, non-cash stock-based compensation of $6,107,693.

 

The net loss from operations in the first nine months of fiscal 2020 was $7,594,221 as compared to $12,862,604 for the comparable period of the prior year. The nationwide economic shutdown due to COVID-19 during the first nine months of 2020 severely reduced operations at the end of the September of 2020.

Recent Financings

 

We have completed various financings as described as described under the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Market risk is the risk of loss arising from adverse changes in market rates and prices, such as interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and commodity prices. Our primary exposure to market risk is interest rate risk associated with our short-term money market investments. The Company does not have any financial instruments held for trading or other speculative purposes and does not invest in derivative financial instruments, interest rate swaps or other investments that alter interest rate exposure. The Company does not have any credit facilities with variable interest rates.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures, which are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our CEO and CFO, an evaluation was performed on the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report. Based on that evaluation, our management, including our CEO and CFO, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of the end of the period covered by this report.

 

There were no changes in the Company's internal controls over financial reporting during the most recently completed fiscal quarter that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect the Company's internal control over financial reporting.
