Since the acquisition of First Capital Venture Co., the focus of the Company has been the development of the business of Diamond CBD, Inc. PotNetwork Media Group, Inc. is an early stage company.

Table of Contents

  

Diamond CBD, Inc. focuses on the research, development, and multinational marketing of premium hemp extracts that contain a broad range of cannabinoids and natural hemp derivatives.

 

Diamond CBD’s catalog can be found in http://catalog.diamondcbd.com.

 

Since the acquisition of First Capital Venture and Diamond CBD on January 31, 2017, Diamond CBD’s business has become the primary business of this Company. Diamond CBD is treated as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company and the accounts of the subsidiary are presented in the Company’s consolidated statements eliminating inter-company transactions. In accordance with ASC 805-40-45 the consolidated financial statements represent the continuation of the financial statements of the wholly owned subsidiary except for its capital structure. The Company, being the legal acquiror, but the accounting acquiror, did not have significant assets or revenues prior to the consolidation.

 

Investment in the wholly owned subsidiary is accounted for in accordance with ASC 810.

 

In February 2018, the Company reversed ab initio the March 17, 2017 holding company reorganization. As a result, the Company re-assumed its prior name, PotNetwork Holdings, Inc. (with an “s” on Holding), while remaining a Colorado corporation. None of the acquisitions or the share capital structure was affected.

 

In February 2018, the shares issued pursuant to the reorganization were cancelled, no other adjustments had been made.

 

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

BASIS OF PRESENTATIONS: The statements were prepared following generally accepted accounting principles of the United States of America which were consistently applied.

 

USE OF ESTIMATES: Management uses estimates and assumptions in preparing these financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Those estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported revenues and expenses.

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION – DIAMOND CBD BUSINESS: Revenue from the sale of goods is measured at fair value of the consideration received or receivable and is recognized in the statement of comprehensive income of the Company when significant risks and rewards of the ownership of the goods have been transferred to the buyers.

 

The Company applies the five-step model of revenue recognition under ASC 606 to the sales orders in the e-commerce platform. The following describes the Company’s process per each step (1-5) of ASC606:

 

Step 1:

"Identify the contract with a customer".

 

 

 

 

A.

The company’s ecommerce website is making the offer to the customer.

 

B.

The customer chooses the product(s) and quantities of each.

 

C.

The customer enters its credit card information.

 

D.

The contract between the company and the customer is concluded when the authorization is taken vis-a-vis the merchant account which processes the credit card payment.

 

 

Step 2:

“Identify the performance obligations in the contract”.

 

The company ships the merchandise and subsequently records the customer payment

 

Step 3:

“Determine the transaction price”.

 

The website states each product’s regular price, and applicable sale price which is the amount that the customer pays the company.

 

Step 4:

“Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract”. The company’s e-commerce platform applies any quantity discount or other discount offered by the Company, automatically.

 

Step 5:

“Recognize revenue when the entity satisfies a performance obligation”.

 

The Company records the sale upon the order’s shipping, identified by a tracking number.

CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS: Cash equivalents include short-term, highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less at the time of acquisition and the balance cash in hand and the balance in bank accounts.

 

ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE: Accounts Receivable (AR) is the payment which the Company will receive from its customers who have purchased its goods & services in the last month of the year and on credit terms. Usually the credit period is short, approximately a few days.

   

 

ASSESSMENT OF COLLECTABILITY:

 

 

o

Receivables supervisor is authorized to collect delinquent accounts

 

o

The Treasurer has the authority to assign accounts to a third party for collection

 

o

Recording of Accounts Receivable: All amounts due on physical delivery of the merchandise from the drop-shipper, must be promptly recorded as an accounts receivable. Each account receivable must be recorded and maintained until payment is received or the recorded amount is written off or extinguished.

 

o

An adequate provision for doubtful accounts must be established. When all reasonable efforts fail to collect an account receivable and it has been approved for write off, the related provision for doubtful accounts should be reduced.

 

o

Control and Subsidiary Accounts: The accounting system incorporates control accounts, where applicable, to ensure the completeness and accuracy of individual accounts. The Receivables supervisor must maintain subsidiary accounts for individual debtors in a manner that discloses, at a given point in time, the aggregate amount owed by each debtor as well as individual amounts making up the aggregate amount. Monthly, the subsidiary accounts for each account receivable must be reconciled with the control account.

 

o

Checks that are returned from the bank as non-negotiable are assessed a returned cheque charge. If there are 2 cheques returned from the same customer within a month, no further cheques will be accepted from the customer unless the cheques are certified, until there is an acceptable payment history for a further one-year period.

 

 

o

Statements to Debtors: Statements must be issued to debtors, on a monthly basis, providing meaningful and concise information on the status of their debts.

 

o

Accounts receivable are considered overdue when a debtor does not pay or resolve the debt within 30 days from the invoice date or a written request for payment to the debtor.

 

o

All actions taken to collect overdue accounts must be documented.

 

o

If there is no response after the initial contact at the 30-day point (within a 30-day period – 60 days from date of invoice), accounts will be forwarded to Treasury Staff to take prompt and vigorous action to collect overdue accounts receivable.

 

o

Accounts receivable, in most cases, should be at least 30 days overdue (i.e., 60 days after invoice notification), before staff advises debtors that their accounts are overdue and that the accounts may be:

PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT: Property and equipment are stated at the written-down value [that is, after deducting depreciation from the cost]. This Company adapted the depreciation rates as provided in IRS publications, using the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS). Computers and office equipment are considered as 5-year property. Office furniture and fixtures are 7-year property in MACRS and apply the 200% declining balance method over a GDS recovery period. Wherever possible, section 179 depreciation is also applied. However, the accumulated depreciation shall not exceed the actual cost at any point of time. As on the date of the financial statements, the Company does not hold any assets.

 

INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

 

o

Initial Measurement: Intangible asset acquisitions in which the consideration given is cash are measured by the amount of cash paid, which generally includes the transaction costs of the asset acquisition. However, if the consideration given is not in the form of cash (that is, in the form of noncash assets, liabilities incurred, or equity interests issued), measurement is based on either the cost which shall be measured based on the fair value of the consideration given or the fair value of the assets (or net assets) acquired, whichever is clearer and, thus, more reliably measurable.

 

o

Subsequent Measurement: The Company accounts for its intangible assets under the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification Subtopic (“ASC”) 350-30-35 “Intangibles-- Goodwill and Other--General Intangibles Other than Goodwill-Subsequent Measurement”. Under this method the Company is required to test an indefinite-lived intangible asset for impairment on at least an annual basis. This is done by comparing the asset’s fair value with its carrying amount. If the carrying amount exceeds the asset’s fair value, the difference in those amounts is recognized as an impairment loss.

 

 

·

ASC 350 requires capitalizing any money spent on product development and product improvement. During the current year, money spent on product development is very little and is not significant.

 

FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS: For certain of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash, accrued expenses and short-term debt, the carrying amounts approximate their fair values due to their short maturities. We adopted ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”, which requires disclosure of the fair value of financial instruments held by the Company. ASC Topic 825, “Financial Instruments,” defines fair value, and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement that enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures. The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for current liabilities qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of their fair values because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurements). The three levels of valuation hierarchy are defined as follows:

 

Level 1:

Valuations consist of unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities and has the highest priority;

Level 2:

Valuations rely on quoted prices in markets that are not active or observable inputs over the full term of the asset or liability;

Level 3:

Valuations are based on prices or third party or internal valuation models that require inputs that are significant to the fair value measurement and less observable and thus have the lowest priority.

Investments in subsidiaries: The March 17, 2017 reorganization is referred as holding Company reorganization. The Company did not make any payment in cash or check in connection with the reorganization. First Capital Venture Co., the parent of Diamond CBD, Inc. is now the wholly owned subsidiary. The entire amount of current year profit is attributable to the business generated by this wholly owned subsidiary. As required under ASC 810, consolidated accounts are presented in this financial statement.

 

Redemption Right: In 2017, this Company signed convertible promissory notes for $1,200,000. The convertible note has the redemption right, which reads as, “Notwithstanding any provision contained herein to the contrary including the conversion rights as set forth in this section, the Company shall be entitled, at any time prior to the expiration of five days from any notice of conversion, to repay this Note in full, plus interest, minus the credit accorded from prior payments, including from prior conversions, and avoid any further Note conversion and thus avoid the issuance of any additional shares of PotNetwork Holdings, Inc.” By this clause, no derivative liability exists. Further, these convertible promissory notes are exchanged for Common Stock Purchase Warrant, as mentioned supra.

 

NOTE 3 - GOING CONCERN

 

The financial statements are prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates, among other things, the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.

 

Since PotNetwork Holdings, Inc. has no uncertainties as on the balance sheet date, the financial statements need no adjustments.

 

Since Diamond CBD’s business originated in 2015, it is considered as a business with limited operating history. Hence, this business is subject to all risks inherent in a developing business enterprise. Continued success depends on the problems, difficulties, complications, and delays frequently encountered in the competitive and regulatory environment in which it operates.

 

Since the CBD business is a burgeoning industry, there are no established entities whose business model Diamond CBD can follow or build upon.

 

Regulatory risk: Hemp-based CBD is often confused with marijuana-based CBD which remains illegal under federal Law; although the Company maintains that its products are legal. Yet, this legal risk cannot be ignored.

 

Although Diamond CBD does not sell any marijuana-based CBD products, its products could be treated as being illegal by federal/state authorities and by consumers.

 

The Company is involved in a highly competitive industry where it may compete with numerous other companies who offer alternative methods or approaches, who may have far greater resources, more experience, and personnel perhaps more qualified than the Company does. Such resources, experience and personnel may provide a substantial competitive advantage to the competition.

 

NOTE 4 - DEFERRED TAX COMPUTATION: The Company uses the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes”. Under this method, income tax expense is recognized for: (i) taxes payable or refundable for the current year and (ii) deferred tax consequences of temporary differences resulting from matters that have been recognized in an entity’s financial statements or tax returns. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.

 

 
11
 
Table of Contents

 

The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the results of operations in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided to reduce the deferred tax assets reported if based on the weight of the available positive and negative evidence, it is more likely than not some portion or all the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

ASC Topic 740.10.30 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. ASC Topic 740.10.40 provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition. We have no material uncertain tax positions for any of the reporting periods presented.

 

There was no income tax expense during this quarter. However, the availability of a net operating loss carryforward and the associated deduction, is subject to complex and restrictive federal income tax provisions as codified by Internal Revenue Code section 172 and related Treasury Regulations, all of which are subject to change and the availability of which can never be free from doubt.

NOTE 11 – Management Assertions on the 2 court cases regarding Convertible Promissory Notes of Predecessor

 

 

Mammoth West Corporation [case# 17 CH 778, 19th Circuit Court of Lake County, IL] and Southridge Partners II Limited Partnership [case# 3:17-cv-01925, Connecticut] each filed a civil complaint about its convertible promissory note (each referred to as a “Note”).

 

In each instance, the Note was issued not by the Company, but by the Company’s predecessor issuer, SND Auto Company Inc. (which predecessor issuer had changed its name before changing it back to SND Auto Group, Inc.). The Note was issued by SND Auto Company Inc., on June 13, 2016 and on July 18, 2016, respectively, for money paid to SND Auto Company Inc., at a time in which SND Auto Company Inc. was the public Company, operating in the automobile industry. However, on March 14, 2017, SND Auto Company Inc. formed the Company and engaged in a holding Company reorganization whereby the Company became the public entity while SND Auto Company Inc., became its subsidiary. The holding Company reorganization was an express condition of First Capital Venture Holdings Co., which is the parent Company to Diamond CBD, Inc. being acquired by the Company and thereby entering the CBD oil business. The acquisition would not have occurred without the holding Company reorganization. Following this acquisition and the holding Company reorganization, and following the Company becoming the public entity, the stock price increased significantly. In other words, the CBD oil company stock price (the Company, i.e., PotNetwork Holdings, Inc.) was much greater than the stock price of the automobile Company (SND Auto Company Inc.).

 

The plaintiff invested in an automobile Company, not in the CBD oil business. Yet, plaintiff wants to convert its Note issued by the automobile company into shares of the CBD oil Company, which was not the maker of the Note.

 

As of December 31, 2017, SND Auto Company Inc., not the Company, owed Mammoth West Corporation $7,280 and Southridge Partners II Limited Partnership $26,000, on the Notes, which obligations were never disputed by SND Auto Company Inc. (which SND Auto Group, Inc. agreed to pay each, in full).

 

The Company has maintained that these were not debts of the Company, and the holding Company reorganization was engaged in to assure as much, not to avoid payment, but instead, to isolate this debt from the new CBD oil business, SND Auto Company Inc. being a separate and distinct legal entity with its own assets and debts.

 

However, on February 7, 2018, the Company and its predecessor issuer, SND Auto Company Inc., unwound the March 14, 2017 holding Company reorganization.

 

 

Because of that unwinding, Company’s counsel agrees that the Company, the public entity, became liable for this SND Auto Group, Inc. Notes, but only as of the February 7, 2018 rewinding, not prior thereto.

 

So, at this point, the dispute between the parties surrounds the conversion price.

 

In each case, the terms of the Note entitle the plaintiff, as holder, to convert into shares of the maker’s common stock.

 

On March 28, 2017 and on April 24, 2017, the conversion notice in each case was issued, not to SND Auto Group, Inc., the maker, but to the Company, for shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

The terms of the Note entitle the plaintiff to payment in cash or in shares of the maker (SND Auto Group, Inc.), at a discount of 65% of the lowest trading price of the preceding 30 trading days.

 

Instead, however, the plaintiff has throughout, sought to convert into shares of the Company, at a fraction of a penny per share, or approximately 2,700,000 shares in each instance (as opposed to approximately 56,000 shares in each instance), of the Company, based on SND Auto Group, Inc.’s share price, when SND Auto Group, Inc. was the public Company, and prior to the Company even being in existence, let alone being public.

 

It is the Company’s position that the Company only became obligated for the Note (which is the obligation of the maker, SND Auto Group, Inc.), upon the unwinding of the reorganization, or as of February 7, 2018, when the Company’s stock price was considerably higher (and therefore obligated to issue far fewer shares in satisfaction of the conversion notice) than it was prior to the holding Company reorganization and the acquisition of First Capital Venture Holdings Co.

 

The Company intends to vigorously defend against this claim. The Company is confident in its position.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information required under this item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures. Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time period 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 in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is accumulated and communicated to management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

In connection with this quarterly report, as required by Rule 15d-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, we have carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our company’s disclosure controls and procedures. The material weaknesses in our disclosure control procedures are as follows:

 

1. Lack of formal policies and procedures necessary to adequately review significant accounting transactions. We utilize a third-party independent contractor for the preparation of our financial statements. Although the financial statements and footnotes are reviewed by our management, we do not have a formal policy to review significant accounting transactions and the accounting treatment of such transactions. The third-party independent contractor is not involved in our day to day operations and may not be provided information from our management on a timely basis to allow for adequate reporting/consideration of certain transactions.

 

2. Audit Committee and Financial Expert. We do not have an audit committee with a financial expert and, thus, we lack the appropriate oversight within the financial reporting process.

 

We intend to initiate measures to remediate the identified material weaknesses, including, but not necessarily limited to, the following:

 

 

·

Establishing a formal review process of significant accounting transactions that includes participation of our principal executive officer, principal financial officer and corporate legal counsel.

 

·

Form an audit committee that will establish policies and procedures that will provide our Board of Directors with a formal review process that will among other things, assure that management controls and procedures are in place and being maintained consistently.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) or 15d-15(f)) during the current reporting period that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

 

Effective of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Management has carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures. The results of this evaluation determined that our disclosure controls and procedures, as well as our internal control over financial reporting, were effective as of September 30, 2019.

PART II—OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

The Company is involved in the following legal proceedings, each of which is specific to each plaintiff suing the Company based upon the convertibility of a promissory note. In each case the Company is contesting the validity of the request for conversion of shares pursuant to each such note (each referred to as a “Note”). The following are the case references to each case filed by each of the plaintiffs (collectively, the “Plaintiffs”):

 

 

¨

Mammoth West Corporation v PotNetwork Holdings Inc., Case No. 17 CH 778, 19th Circuit Court of Lake County, IL. Filed May 26, 2017.

 

¨

Southridge Partners II Limited Partnership vs. SND Auto Group, Inc., Case No. 3:17-cv-01925 US District Court for the District of Connecticut, filed January 5, 2018.

 

¨

J. P. Carey Limited Partners, L.P. v. PotNetwork Holdings, Inc., Case No.3:18-CV-00873-WWE, US District Court for the District of Connecticut, filed May 24, 2018.

 

Each Plaintiff filed a civil complaint with regard to their rights to convert a specific convertible promissory Note. In each case, the Note was issued not by the Company, but by its predecessor issuer, SND Auto Company Inc. (which predecessor issuer had changed its name before changing it back to SND Auto Group, Inc.). Each Note was issued by SND Auto Company Inc., respectively on June 13, 2016 to Mammoth West Corporation and on July 18, 2016 to Southridge Partners II Limited Partnership, for money paid to SND Auto Company Inc., at a time when SND Auto Company Inc. was the public entity, with sole operations in the automotive industry. (Plaintiff, J. P. Carey Limited Partners, L.P., on March 1, 2018, was a subsequent purchaser of a portion of the Southridge Partners II Limited Partnership Note and conversion rights connected to the amount purchased, which it then attempted to convert on the pre-reorganization terms and conditions of the Note, as more fully defined below.) Subsequent to the issuance of the Notes, on March 14, 2017, SND Auto Company Inc. engaged in a holding company reorganization whereby SND Auto Company Inc., became a subsidiary of the public entity. The holding company reorganization was an express condition of a private company, First Capital Venture Holdings Co., whose acquisition was the principal reason for the reorganization.

 

The original two Plaintiffs had invested in 2016 in an automotive company, not in the subsequent business of the post reorganization company. As of December 31, 2017, SND Auto Company Inc., not the post reorganization Company, owed Mammoth West Corporation $7,280 and Southridge Partners II Limited Partnership $26,000, on each of the Notes, which obligations have never been disputed by SND Auto Company Inc. The Company has maintained that these Notes were not debts of the post reorganization Company, and the holding Company reorganization was undertaken in order to isolate said debt from the new business of the post reorganization public Company, its subsidiary, SND Auto Company Inc., being a separate and distinct legal entity. However, on February 7, 2018, the Company and its predecessor issuer, SND Auto Company Inc., unwound the March 14, 2017 holding company reorganization for reasons unrelated to the disputed obligations of the Notes. As a consequence of that unwinding, the Company, the public entity, may have become liable for these SND Auto Group, Inc. Notes, but in the Company’s opinion, such liability only became effective as of the February 7, 2018, the date of the rewinding, not prior. At this point, each dispute between the Company and each Plaintiff has now focused on the specific conversion price to be allowed by the Company in any conversion. On March 28, 2017 and on April 24, 2017, each of the original Plaintiffs respectively issued a conversion notice not to SND Auto Group, Inc., each Note’s maker, but to the post reorganization Company, for shares of its common stock. The terms of each Note entitle the plaintiff to payment in cash or in shares of the maker (SND Auto Group, Inc.), at a discount of 65% of the lowest trading price of the preceding 30 trading days from the date of each conversion notice. Each Plaintiff has sought to convert into shares of the post reorganization Company, at a conversion price of a fraction of a penny per share, based on SND Auto Group, Inc.’s share price prior to the reorganization. It is the Company’s position that it is not obligated for each Note until the date of the unwinding of the reorganization, February 7, 2018, a time when the Company’s publicly traded stock price was considerably higher than the price pre-reorganization which the Plaintiffs are attempting to use in each of their conversions.
