EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

On May 15, 2020 (the “Original Due Date”), Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K, and is filing this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (the “Quarterly Report”), in reliance on the Order of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), dated March 25, 2020, pursuant to Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 modifying exemptions from the reporting and proxy delivery requirements for public companies (Release No. 34-88465).

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has required the Company’s management to focus their attention primarily on responding to the challenges presented by the pandemic, including ensuring continuous operations, and adjusting the Company’s operations to address changes in the recruitment industry. As previously disclosed, this caused a delay in completing the Company’s year-end audit and the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 (the “2019 Form 10-K”), which was filed on May 8, 2020. The preparation of the Annual Report required substantial time and effort from management. These circumstances have impacted the Company’s ability to complete its quarterly review and file this Quarterly Report by the Original Due Date.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2020

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1 — ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

General

 

Recruiter.com Group, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“RGI”), is a holding company based in Houston, Texas. The Company has four subsidiaries, Recruiter.com, Inc., Recruiter.com Recruiting Solutions LLC (“Recruiting Solutions”), Recruiter.com Consulting, LLC and VocaWorks, Inc. (“VocaWorks”). RGI and its subsidiaries as a consolidated group is hereinafter referred to as the “Company.” The Company operates in Connecticut, Texas, and New York.

 

Until May 13, 2020, the Company was a Delaware corporation. On May 13, 2020, the Company effected a reincorporation from the State of Delaware to the State of Nevada (see Note 13).

 

Asset Purchase

 

Effective March 31, 2019, RGI acquired certain assets and assumed certain liabilities under an asset purchase agreement, dated March 31, 2019, among RGI, Genesys Talent LLC, a Texas limited liability company (“Genesys”), and Recruiting Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Asset Purchase”). As consideration in the Asset Purchase the Company issued a total of 200,000 shares of its Series F Preferred Stock convertible into 2,500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. The acquired assets and liabilities include certain accounts receivable, accounts payable, deferred revenue, sales and client relationships, contracts, intellectual property, partnership and vendor agreements and certain other assets. The Company is utilizing these assets in its employment staffing business operated through Recruiting Solutions. This transaction was treated as a business combination (see Note 12).

 

Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of RGI and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited. The unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Certain information and note disclosures normally included in annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading. Accordingly, these interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto of RGI for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, filed with the SEC on May 8, 2020. The December 31, 2019 balance sheet is derived from those statements.

 

In the opinion of management, these unaudited interim financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 include all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company for the periods presented). The results for the three months ended March 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020 or for any future period. All references to March 31, 2020 and 2019 in these footnotes are unaudited.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results and outcomes may differ from management’s estimates and assumptions. Included in these estimates are assumptions used to estimate collection of accounts receivable, fair value of available for sale securities, fair value of derivative liabilities, fair value of securities issued for acquisitions, fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the business combination, fair value of intangible assets and goodwill, valuation of initial right of use assets and corresponding lease liabilities, deferred income tax asset valuation allowances, and valuation of stock based compensation expense. 

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all short-term highly liquid investments with a remaining maturity at the date of purchase of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents are maintained at financial institutions and, at times, balances may exceed federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses related to these balances as of March 31, 2020. There were no uninsured balances as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019. The Company had no cash equivalents during or at the end of either period.

Revenue Recognition 

 

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (“ASC 606”). Revenues are recognized when control is transferred to customers in amounts that reflect the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for those goods. Revenue recognition is evaluated through the following five steps: (i) identification of the contract, or contracts, with a customer; (ii) identification of the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) determination of the transaction price; (iv) allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and (v) recognition of revenue when or as a performance obligation is satisfied.

 

Revenues are predominantly derived from the following activities:

 

  Consulting and Staffing. Consists of consulting and staffing personnel services provided to customers to satisfy demand for long term consulting and temporary employee needs.

 

  Recruiting Solutions. Consists of placement of specialized personnel at employers generating success-based fees for candidate referrals for direct-hire, facilitated by our Job Market software platform and artificial intelligence matching technologies.

  

  Career Solutions. Consists of (i) Resume Distribution, whereby the Company sends out candidate resumes to its network of independent recruiters and (ii) Recruiter Certification Program, whereby users access the Company’s recruitment training content through its online learning management system.

 

  Marketing Solutions. Consists of web portal monetization, lead generation, and digital publication advertising structured for specialized B2B software companies to access niche industry audience, primarily of recruitment and HR audience.

 

We have a sales team and sales partnerships with direct employers as well as Vendor Management System companies and Managed Service companies that help create sales channels for clients that buy staffing, direct hire, and sourcing services.  Once we have secured the relationship and contract with the interested Enterprise customer the delivery and product teams will provide the service to fulfil any or all of the revenue segments.

 

Revenues as presented on the statement of operations represent services rendered to customers less sales adjustments and allowances.

 

Consulting and Staffing Services revenues represent services rendered to customers less sales adjustments and allowances. Reimbursements, including those related to travel and out-of-pocket expenses, are also included in the net service revenues and equivalent amounts of reimbursable expenses are included in costs of revenue. We record substantially all revenue on a gross basis as a principal versus on a net basis as an agent in the presentation of this line of revenues and expenses. We have concluded that gross reporting is appropriate because we have the task of identifying and hiring qualified employees, and our discretion to select the employees and establish their compensation and duties causes us to bear the risk for services that are not fully paid for by customers. Consulting and staffing revenues are recognized when the services are rendered by the temporary employees. Payroll and related taxes of employees that are placed on temporary assignment are outsourced to third party payors or related party payors. The payors pay all related costs of employment, including workers’ compensation insurance, state and federal unemployment taxes, social security and certain fringe benefits. We assume the risk of acceptability of the employees to customers. Payments for consulting and staffing services are typically due within 90 days of completion of services.

 

Direct hire recruitment placement revenues are recognized on a gross basis when the guarantee period specified in the customer contract expires. No fees for direct hire placement services are charged to employment candidates. Any payments received prior to the expiration of the guarantee period are recorded as a deferred revenue liability. Payments for recruitment services are typically due within 90 days of completion of services.

 

Career services revenues are recognized on a gross basis upon distribution of resumes or completion of training courses, which is the point at which the performance obligations are satisfied. Payments for career services are typically due upon distribution or completion of services. 

 

Marketing and publishing services revenues are recognized on a gross basis when the advertising is placed and displayed or when lead generation activities and online publications are completed, which is the point at which the performance obligations are satisfied. Payments for marketing and publishing are typically due within 30 days of completion of services.

 

Deferred revenue results from transactions in which the Company has been paid for services by customers, but for which all revenue recognition criteria have not yet been met. Once all revenue recognition criteria have been met, the deferred revenues are recognized.

 

Sales tax collected is recorded on a net basis and is excluded from revenue.

 

Contract Assets

 

The Company does not have any contract assets such as work-in-process. All trade receivables on the Company’s balance sheet are from contracts with customers.

 

6

 

 

Contract Costs

 

Costs incurred to obtain a contract are capitalized unless they are short term in nature. As a practical matter, costs to obtain a contract that are short term in nature are expensed as incurred. The Company does not have any contract costs capitalized as of March 31, 2020 or December 31, 2019.

 

Contract Liabilities - Deferred Revenue

 

The Company’s contract liabilities consist of advance customer payments and deferred revenue. Deferred revenue results from transactions in which the Company has been paid for services by customers, but for which all revenue recognition criteria have not yet been met. Once all revenue recognition criteria have been met, the deferred revenues are recognized.

 

For each of the identified periods, revenues can be categorized into the following: 

 

   

Three Months Ended

March 31,

 
    2020     2019  
Consulting and staffing services   $ 1,913,394     $ -  
Permanent placement fees     137,627       40,278  
License and other     184,975       -  
Career services     36,934       39,282  
Marketing and publishing     40,193       83,742  
Total revenue   $ 2,313,123     $ 163,302  

  

As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, deferred revenue amounted to $130,040 and $145,474 respectively. As of March 31, 2020, deferred revenues associated with placement services are $110,290 and we expect the recognition of such services to be $97,190 within the three months ended June 30, 2020 and $13,100 thereafter. As of March 31, 2020, deferred revenues associated with marketing services are $19,750 and we expect the recognition of such services to be within the three months ended June 30, 2020.

 

Revenue from international sources was approximately 2% and 7% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Costs of Revenue

 

Costs of revenues consist of third party staffing costs and other fees, outsourced recruiter fees and net margin revenue share.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Credit is extended to customers based on an evaluation of their financial condition and other factors. Management periodically assesses the Company’s accounts receivable and, if necessary, establishes an allowance for estimated uncollectible amounts. Accounts determined to be uncollectible are charged to operations when that determination is made. The Company usually does not require collateral. We have recorded an allowance for doubtful accounts of $34,750 and $23,500 as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Bad debt expense was $11,250 and $0 for the three month periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk and Significant Customers and Vendors

 

As of March 31, 2020, three customers accounted for more than 10% of the accounts receivable balance, at 32%, 16%, and 12%, for a total of 60%. As of December 31, 2019, three customers accounted for more than 10% of the accounts receivable balance, at 19%, 15% and 13%, for a total of 47%. 

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020 two customers accounted for 10% of more of total revenue, at 33% and 18%, for a total of 51%. For the three months ended March 31, 2019 three customers accounted for 10% or more of total revenue, at 15%, 15% and 15%, for a total of 45%.

 

We use a related party firm for software development and maintenance related to our website and the platform underlying our operations. One of our officers and principal shareholders is an employee of this firm but exerts control over this firm (see Note 11). 

 

We are a party to that certain license agreement with a related party firm (see Note 11). Pursuant to the license agreement the firm has granted us an exclusive license to use certain candidate matching software and render certain related services to us. If this relationship was terminated or if the firm was to cease doing business or cease to support the applications we currently utilize, we may be forced to expend significant time and resources to replace the licensed software. Further, the necessary replacements may not be available on a timely basis on favorable terms, or at all. If we were to lose the ability to use this software our business and operating results could be materially and adversely affected. 

 

Advertising and Marketing Costs

 

The Company expenses all advertising and marketing costs as incurred. Advertising and marketing costs were $25,243 and $11,576 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company measures and discloses the fair value of assets and liabilities required to be carried at fair value in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures. ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a hierarchical framework for measuring fair value, and enhances fair value measurement disclosure. 

 

ASC 825 defines fair value as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. When determining the fair value measurements for assets and liabilities required or permitted to be recorded at fair value, the Company considers the principal or most advantageous market in which it would transact and considers assumptions that market participants would use when pricing the asset or liability, such as inherent risk, transfer restrictions, and risk of nonperformance. ASC 825 establishes a fair value hierarchy that requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 825 establishes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1 - Quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets to which we have access at the measurement date.

 

Level 2 - Inputs other than quoted prices within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly.

 

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability.

 

The determination of where assets and liabilities fall within this hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

 

The Company’s investment in available for sale securities and warrant derivative liabilities are measured at fair value. The securities are measured based on current trading prices using Level 1 fair value inputs. The Company’s derivative instruments are valued using Level 3 fair value inputs. The Company does not have any other financial instruments which require re-measurement to fair value. The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses, and loans payable represent fair value based upon their short-term nature.

 

A financial asset or liability’s classification within the hierarchy is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The table below summarizes the fair values of our financial assets and liabilities as of March 31, 2020:

 

    Fair Value at
March 31,
    Fair Value Measurement Using  
    2020     Level 1     Level 2     Level 3  
                         
Available for sale marketable securities (Note 3)   $ 11,025     $ 11,025     $ -     $ -  
Warrant derivative liability (Note 9)   $ 1,177,130     $ -     $ -     $ 1,177,130  

 

The reconciliation of the derivative liability measured at fair value on a recurring basis using unobservable inputs (Level 3) is as follows for the three months ended March 31, 2020:

 

Balance at December 31, 2019   $ 612,042  
Additions to derivative instruments     -  
Loss on change in fair value of derivative liability     565,088  
Balance at March 31, 2020   $ 1,177,130  

  

Goodwill

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment: The objective of this guidance is to simplify an entity’s required test for impairment of goodwill by eliminating Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test by permitting the entity to complete a qualitative assessment to determine if it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. Under this Update, an entity should perform its annual or quarterly goodwill impairment test by comparing the fair value of the reporting unit with its carrying amount and record an impairment charge for the excess of the carrying amount over the reporting unit’s fair value. The loss recognized should not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit and the entity must consider the income tax effects from any tax deductible goodwill on the carrying amount of the reporting unit when measuring the goodwill impairment loss, if applicable. This guidance is effective for a public business entity that is an SEC filer for its annual or any interim goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 and early adoption is permitted. The Company early adopted ASU 2017-04 as of January 1, 2019.

 

Goodwill is comprised of the purchase price of business combinations in excess of the fair value assigned at acquisition to the net tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired. Goodwill is not amortized. The Company tests goodwill for impairment for its reporting units on an annual basis, or when events occur or circumstances indicate the fair value of a reporting unit is below its carrying value.

 

8

 

 

The Company performs its annual goodwill and impairment assessment on December 31st of each year.

 

When evaluating the potential impairment of goodwill, management first assess a range of qualitative factors, including but not limited to, macroeconomic conditions, industry conditions, the competitive environment, changes in the market for the Company’s products and services, regulatory and political developments, entity specific factors such as strategy and changes in key personnel, and the overall financial performance for each of the Company’s reporting units. If, after completing this assessment, it is determined that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value, we then proceed to the impairment testing methodology primarily using the income approach (discounted cash flow method).

 

We compare the carrying value of the reporting unit, including goodwill, with its fair value, as determined by its estimated discounted cash flows. If the carrying value of a reporting unit exceeds its fair value, then the amount of impairment to be recognized is recognized as the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value.

 

When required, we arrive at our estimates of fair value using a discounted cash flow methodology which includes estimates of future cash flows to be generated by specifically identified assets, as well as selecting a discount rate to measure the present value of those anticipated cash flows. Estimating future cash flows requires significant judgment and includes making assumptions about projected growth rates, industry-specific factors, working capital requirements, weighted average cost of capital, and current and anticipated operating conditions. The use of different assumptions or estimates for future cash flows could produce different results.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

We account for our stock-based compensation under ASC 718 “Compensation – Stock Compensation” using the fair value based method. Under this method, compensation cost is measured at the grant date based on the value of the award and is recognized over the shorter of the service period or the vesting period of the stock-based compensation. This guidance establishes standards for the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges it equity instruments for goods or services. It also addresses transactions in which an entity incurs liabilities in exchange for goods or services that are based on the fair value of the entity’s equity instruments or that may be settled by the issuance of those equity instruments. The Company estimates the fair value of each stock option at the grant date by using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. Determining the fair value of stock-based compensation at the grant date under this model requires judgment, including estimating volatility, employee stock option exercise behaviors and forfeiture rates. The assumptions used in calculating the fair value of stock-based compensation represent the Company’s best estimates, but these estimates involve inherent uncertainties and the application of management judgment. 

 

Derivative Instruments

 

The Company’s derivative financial instruments consist of the warrants issued with the sale of our Series D Preferred Stock in 2019 (see Note 9). The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments requires that we record the derivatives at their fair values as of the inception date of the debt agreements and at fair value as of each subsequent balance sheet date. Any change in fair value is recorded as non-operating, non-cash income or expense at each balance sheet date. If the fair value of the derivatives was higher at the subsequent balance sheet date, we recorded a non-operating, non-cash charge. If the fair value of the derivatives was lower at the subsequent balance sheet date, we recorded non-operating, non-cash income.

 

Product Development

 

Product development costs are included in selling, general and administrative expenses and consist of support, maintenance and upgrades of our website and IT platform and are charged to operations as incurred.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

The Company follows ASC 260 “Earnings Per Share” for calculating the basic and diluted earnings (or loss) per share. Basic earnings (or loss) per share are computed by dividing earnings (or loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings (or loss) per share is computed similar to basic loss per share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional shares of common stock that would have been outstanding if the potential shares of common stock had been issued and if the additional shares were dilutive. Common stock equivalents are excluded from the diluted earnings (or loss) per share computation if their effect is anti-dilutive. Common stock equivalents in amounts of 18,685,872 and 17,776,578 were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, because their effects would have been anti-dilutive.

Business Segments

 

The Company uses the “management approach” to identify its reportable segments. The management approach designates the internal organization used by management for making operating decisions and assessing performance as the basis for identifying the Company’s reportable segments. Using the management approach, the Company determined that it has one operating segment.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

There have not been any recent changes in accounting pronouncements and ASU issued by the FASB that are of significance or potential significance to the Company except as disclosed below.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, “Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes.” This guidance, among other provisions, eliminates certain exceptions to existing guidance related to the approach for intraperiod tax allocation, the methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period and the recognition of deferred tax liabilities for outside basis differences. This guidance also requires an entity to reflect the effect of an enacted change in tax laws or rates in its effective income tax rate in the first interim period that includes the enactment date of the new legislation, aligning the timing of recognition of the effects from enacted tax law changes on the effective income tax rate with the effects on deferred income tax assets and liabilities. Under existing guidance, an entity recognizes the effects of the enacted tax law change on the effective income tax rate in the period that includes the effective date of the tax law. ASU 2019-12 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of this guidance.

 

NOTE 2 — GOING CONCERN

 

These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company’s management has evaluated whether there is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern and has determined that substantial doubt existed as of the date of the end of the period covered by this report. This determination was based on the following factors: (i) the Company has a working capital deficit as of March 31, 2020 and the Company’s available cash as of the date of this filing will not be sufficient to fund its anticipated level of operations for the next 12 months; (ii) the Company will require additional financing for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2020 to continue at its expected level of operations; and (iii) if the Company fails to obtain the needed capital, it will be forced to delay, scale back, or eliminate some or all of its development activities or perhaps cease operations. In the opinion of management, these factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern as of the date of the end of the period covered by this report and for one year from the issuance of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

The Company completed rounds of funding during 2019. Additionally, subsequent to March 31, 2020 the Company raised approximately $2.6 million in gross proceeds through the issuance of convertible debentures and warrants as more fully disclosed in Note 13. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be successful in any other capital-raising efforts that it may undertake to fund operations during the next 12 months. The Company anticipates that it will issue equity and/or debt securities as a source of liquidity, until it begins to generate positive cash flow to support its operations. Any future sales of securities to finance operations will dilute existing shareholders’ ownership. The Company cannot guarantee when or if it will generate positive cash flow.

 

In March 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) caused by a novel strain of the coronavirus was recognized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization, and the outbreak has become increasingly widespread in the United States, including in each of the areas in which the Company operates. While to date the Company has not been required to stop operating, management is evaluating its use of its office space, virtual meetings and the like. The Company continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak closely. The extent to which the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak will impact our operations, ability to obtain financing or future financial results is uncertain.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

NOTE 3 — INVESTMENT IN AVAILABLE FOR SALE MARKETABLE SECURITIES 

 

The Company’s investment in marketable equity securities is being held for an indefinite period and thus have been classified as available for sale. Cost basis of securities held as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was $647,000 and $708,541, respectively, and accumulated unrealized losses were $635,975 and $663,775 as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. The value of available for sale marketable securities was $11,025 as of March 31, 2020, based on 333,333 shares of common stock held in two entities with an average per share market price of approximately $0.03.

  

Net recognized gains (losses) on equity investments were as follows:

NOTE 4 — INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

Amortization expense of intangible assets was $159,173 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Future amortization of intangible assets is expected to be approximately $477,000 for 2020, $637,000 for 2021 and $159,000 for 2022. 

 

NOTE 5 — LIABILITY FOR SALE OF FUTURE REVENUES

 

At March 31, 2020 we are party to two agreements related to the sale of future revenues. Both agreements are with the same party, have substantially the same terms, and were entered into in December 2019. Discount related to the agreements will be amortized to expense over the term of the agreements. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we amortized $31,976 of discount to interest expense. Unamortized discount is $103,664 at March 31, 2020.

 

The Company has granted a continuing security interest in the following, to the extent and in the amount of the purchased receivables: all assets including the following property that the Company now owns or shall acquire or create immediately upon the acquisition or creation thereof: (i) any and all amounts owing to the Company now or in the future from any customers; and (ii) all other tangible and intangible personal property of every kind and nature.

 

NOTE 6 — RECEIVABLES FINANCING AGREEMENT

 

In January 2020 we entered into an agreement with a lender that provides advances against the collection of accounts receivable. Advances made under the agreement are generally repayable in 45 days from the date of the advance and bear interest at 1.5% per month. Advances under the agreement were $180,778 at March 31, 2020. In April 2020, the lender informed the Company that it would not be able to advance additional funds pursuant to this arrangement due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

NOTE 7 — LOANS PAYABLE

 

At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 we are party to two lines of credit with outstanding balances of $0. Advances under each of these lines of credit mature within 12 months of the advances. Availability under the two lines was $91,300 at March 31, 2020; however, due to COVID -19 uncertainty (see Note 2), the availability under both lines has been suspended in 2020.

 

We have outstanding balances of $98,816 and $103,800 pursuant to two term loans as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, which mature in 2023. The loans have variable interest rates, with current rates at 7.75% and 7.76%, respectively. Current monthly payments under the loans are $1,759 and $1,008, respectively.

 

The status of these loans as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 are summarized as follows:

  

    March 31,
2020
    December 31,
2019
 
Term loans   $ 98,816     $ 103,800  
Less current portion     (27,793 )     (25,934 )
Non-current portion   $ 71,023     $ 77,866  

  

Future principal payments under the lines of credit and term notes are as follows:

 

Year Ending December 31,      
2020   $ 20,950  
2021     28,136  
2022     30,492  
2023     19,238  
Total minimum principal payments   $ 98,816  

 

Our Chief Executive Officer, who is also a shareholder, has personally guaranteed the loans described above.

NOTE 8 — STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY (DEFICIT), TEMPORARY EQUITY AND NONCONTROLLING INTERESTS

 

Preferred Stock 

 

The Company is authorized to issue 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had 1,355,121 and 1,329,300 shares of preferred stock issued and outstanding, respectively. 

 

Series D Convertible Preferred Stock

 

During 2020 we have issued to the holders of Series D Preferred Stock an aggregate of 106,134 additional shares of Series D Preferred Stock as consideration for waivers of penalties discussed below.

 

In February 2020, the Company issued 161,250 shares of its common stock upon conversion of 12,900 shares of its Series D Preferred Stock.

 

In March 2020, an investor agreed to purchase 2,750 Units, each consisting of one share of Series D Preferred Stock and seven warrants to purchase one share of common stock, for gross proceeds of $50,000. The investor paid $25,000. The balance has not been paid and no shares of Series D Preferred Stock or related warrants have been issued in connection with this investment. The $25,000 payment is reflected as a liability at March 31, 2020.

 

Series E Convertible Preferred Stock

 

In January 2020, the Company issued 39,260 shares of its common stock upon conversion of 3,141 shares of Series E Preferred Stock.

 

Series F Convertible Preferred Stock

 

In January and February 2020, the Company issued 803,414 shares of its common stock upon conversion of 64,272 shares of Series F Preferred Stock.

 

Preferred Stock Penalties

 

On March 31, 2019, we entered into certain agreements with investors pursuant to which we issued convertible preferred stock and warrants, as described above. Each of the series of preferred stock and warrants required us to reserve shares of common stock in the amount equal to two times the common stock issuable upon conversion of the preferred stock and exercise of the warrants. We did not comply in part due to our attempts to manage the Delaware tax which increases to a maximum of $200,000 as the authorized capital increases without the simultaneous increase in the number of shares outstanding. In May 2020 following stockholder approval at a special meeting the Company effected a reincorporation from Delaware to Nevada and a simultaneous increase in our authorized common stock from 31,250,000 shares to 250,000,000 shares, which we expect will be sufficient to meet the reserve requirements. As of December 31, 2019, we estimated that we owed approximately $6 million in penalties to holders of preferred stock. Subsequent to December 31, 2019, we have received waivers from a substantial number of the preferred shareholders with respect to these penalties. We have agreed to issue to the holders of Series D Preferred Stock an aggregate of 106,134 additional shares of Series D Preferred Stock (valued at $1,929,516) as consideration for the waivers. We have accrued this cost at December 31, 2019. Additionally, certain holders of Series E and Series F Preferred Stock have not waived the penalties. We have accrued $308,893 related to these Series E and Series F Preferred holders. Because of our ongoing liquidity problems, we will be required to cease operations if faced with material payment requests from investors who did not agree to waive the penalties. The total accrued penalty amount of $2,238,314 was included in accrued expenses on the balance sheet at December 31, 2019. At March 31, 2020, $308,893 is included in accrued expense on the balance sheet.

NOTE 9 — STOCK OPTIONS AND WARRANTS

 

Stock Options

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we recorded $464,585 of compensation expense related to stock options granted in prior years.

 

No options were granted during the three months ended March 31, 2020. 

 

Warrants Recorded as Derivative Liabilities

 

No warrants were issued during the three months ended March 31, 2020. 

 

The Company identified embedded features in the warrants issued with Series D Preferred Stock in 2019 which caused the warrants to be classified as a liability. These embedded features included the right for the holders to request for the Company to cash settle the warrants to the holder by paying to the holder an amount of cash equal to the Black-Scholes value of the remaining unexercised portion of the warrants on the date of the consummation of a fundamental transaction, as defined in the warrant instrument. The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments requires that the Company treat the whole instrument as liability and record the fair value of the instrument as a derivative as of the inception date of the instrument and to adjust the fair value of the instrument as of each subsequent balance sheet date.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company recorded other expense of $565,088 related to the change in the fair value of the derivative. The fair value of the embedded derivative was $1,177,130 as of March 31, 2020, determined using a binomial model based on a risk-free interest rate of 0.33%, an expected term of 4.0 – 4.21 years, an expected volatility of 374 - 381% and a 0% dividend yield.

 

NOTE 10 — COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Although not a party to any proceedings or claims at March 31, 2020, the Company may be subject to legal proceedings and claims from time-to-time arising out of our operations in the ordinary course of business.

 

Leases:

 

On March 31, 2019, the Company entered into a sublease with a related party (see Note 11) for its current corporate headquarters. The sublease expires in November 2022. Monthly lease payments are currently $7,078 per month and increase to $7,535 per month for the final 20 months of the lease.

 

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02: “Leases (Topic 842)” whereby lessees need to recognize almost all leases on their balance sheet as a right of use asset and a corresponding lease liability. The Company adopted this standard as of January 1, 2019 using the effective date method. We calculated the present value of the remaining lease payment stream using our incremental effective borrowing rate of 10%. We initially recorded a right to use asset and corresponding lease liability amounting to $269,054 on March 31, 2019. The right to use asset and the corresponding lease liability are being equally amortized on a straight-line basis over the remaining term of the lease.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020, lease costs amounted to $37,910 which includes base lease costs of $21,234 and common area and other expenses of $16,676. All costs were expensed during the periods and included in general and administrative expenses on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.  

 

Right-of-use asset (“ROU”) is summarized below:

 

    March 31, 2020  
Operating office lease   $ 269,054  
Less accumulated reduction     (73,378 )
Balance of ROU asset at March 31, 2020   $ 195,676

Less short term portion as of March 31, 2020     (73,378 )
Long term portion as of March 31, 2020   $ 122,298  

  

Future base lease payments under the non-cancellable operating lease at March 31, 2020 are as follows:

 

2020   $ 65,763  
2021     89,736  
2022     82,885

Less discount to fair value     (42,708 )
Total fair value of lease payments   $ 195,676  

  

COVID-19 Uncertainty:

 

In March 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) caused by a novel strain of the coronavirus was recognized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization, and the outbreak has become increasingly widespread in the United States, including in each of the areas in which the Company operates. While to date the Company has not been required to stop operating, management is evaluating its use of its office space, virtual meetings and the like to comply with health and safety guidelines to protect employees, contractors and customers, including in connection with a transition back to the workplace. The Company continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak closely. The extent to which the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak will impact our operations, ability to obtain financing or future financial results is uncertain.

 

 

NOTE 11 — RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

During 2018 we entered into a marketing agreement with an entity controlled by a consultant (who is also a principal shareholder and former noteholder of the Company). The agreement provides for payment to this entity of 10% of applicable revenue generated through the use of the entities database. The agreement also provides for the payment to us of 10% of the revenue generated by the entity using our social media groups. Through March 31, 2020 no fees were due or payable under this arrangement.

 

During 2019 we entered into a two year non-exclusive consulting agreement with a principal shareholder to act as Company’s consultant with respect to introducing the Company to potential acquisition and partnership targets. The Company has agreed to pay the consultant a retainer of $10,000 per month as a non-recoverable draw against any finder fees earned. The Company has also agreed to pay the consultant the sum of $5,500 per month for three years ($198,000 total) as a finder’s fee for introducing Genesys to the Company. This payment is included in the $10,000 monthly retainer payment. We have recorded consulting fees expense of $13,500 during the three months ended March 31, 2020. At March 31, 2020, $132,000 of the Genesys finder’s fee is included in accrued compensation.

 

We use a related party firm of the Company, for software development and maintenance related to our website and the platform underlying our operations. The firm was formed outside of the United States solely for the purpose of performing services for the Company and has no other clients. Our Chief Technology Officer is an employee of this firm and exerts control over the firm. Payments to this firm were $60,979 and $49,854 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

  

We are a party to that certain license agreement with Genesys. An executive officer of the Company is a significant equity holder and a member of the Board of directors of Genesys. Pursuant to the License Agreement Genesys has granted us an exclusive license to use certain candidate matching software and render certain related services to us. The Company has agreed to pay to Genesys a monthly license fee of $5,000 beginning June 29, 2019 and an annual fee of $1,995 for each recruiter being licensed under the License Agreement. During the three months ended March 31, 2020 we charged to operating expenses $38,477 for services provided by Genesys. As of March 31, 2020, the Company owes Genesys $64,868 in payables.

 

Icon Information Consultants performs all of the back office and accounting roles for Recruiting Solutions. Icon Information Consultants then charges a fee for the services along with charging for office space (see Note 10). Icon Information Consultants and Icon Industrial Solutions (collectively “Icon”) also provide “Employer of Record” (“EOR”) services to Recruiting Solutions which means that they process all payroll and payroll tax related duties of temporary and contract employees placed at customer sites and is then paid a reimbursement and fee from Recruiting Solutions. A representative of Icon is a member of our board of directors. Icon Canada also acts as an EOR and collects the customer payments and remits the net fee back to Recruiting Solutions. Revenue related to customers processed by Icon Canada is recognized on a gross basis the same as other revenues and was $33,227 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. EOR costs related to customers processed by Icon Canada was $31,070 for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Four of the investors had previously invested in the Company’s preferred stock. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company sold to the Purchasers a total of (i) $2,953,125 in the aggregate principal amount of 12.5% Original Issue Discount Senior Subordinated Secured Convertible Debentures (the “Debentures”), and (ii) 1,845,703 common stock purchase warrants (the “Warrants”), which represents 100% warrant coverage.

The Debentures mature on May 28, 2021, subject to a six-month extension at the Company’s option. The Debentures bear interest at 8% per annum payable quarterly, subject to an increase in case of an event of default as provided for therein. The Debentures are convertible into shares of Common Stock at any time following the date of issuance at the Purchasers’ option at a conversion price of $1.60 per share, subject to certain adjustments. The Debentures are subject to mandatory conversion in the event the Company closes an equity offering of at least $5,000,000 resulting in the listing of the Company’s common stock on a national securities exchange. The Debentures rank senior to all existing and future indebtedness of the Company and its subsidiaries, except for approximately $508,000 of outstanding senior indebtedness. The Company may prepay the Debentures at any time at a premium as provided for therein.

 

The Warrants are exercisable for three years from May 28, 2020 at an exercise price of $2.00 per share, subject to certain adjustments.

 

The Company’s obligations under the Purchase Agreement and the Debentures are secured by a first priority lien on all of the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries pursuant to a Security Agreement, effective May 28, 2020 (the “Security Agreement”) by and among the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiaries, and the Purchasers, subject to certain existing senior liens.

The Debentures contain customary events of default, including, but not limited to, failure to observe covenants under the Debentures, defaults on other specified indebtedness, loss of admission to trading on OTCQB or another applicable trading market, and occurrence of certain change of control events. Upon the occurrence of an event of default, an amount equal to 130% of the principal, accrued but unpaid interest, and other amounts owing under each Debenture will immediately come due and payable at the election of each Purchaser, and all amounts due under the Debentures will bear interest at an increased rate.

The Debentures and the Warrants also contain certain price protection provisions providing for adjustment of the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Debentures and/or exercise of the Warrants and the conversion or exercise price in case of future dilutive offerings.

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

 

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes appearing elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “Quarterly Report”). In addition to historical information, this discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors, including but not limited to those set forth under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

 

For purposes of this Quarterly Report, “Recruiter.com,” “we,” “our,” “us,” or similar references refers to Recruiter.com Group, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries, unless the context requires otherwise.

 

Overview

 

The Company is an operator of a hiring platform for what we believe is the world’s largest network of small and independent recruiters. Our mission is to create the most collaborative and connective global platform for professional recruiting and become the top of mind solution for recruiting specialized talent. We help businesses accelerate and streamline their recruiting and hiring processes by leveraging our expert network of recruiters aided by cutting edge artificial intelligence-based candidate sourcing and job-matching technology. We operate a cloud-based scalable SaaS-enabled marketplace platform for professional hiring, which opens to prospective employers access to a network of approximately 25,000 independent recruiters from across the country and worldwide, with a diverse talent sourcing skill set, including among others information technology, accounting, finance, sales, marketing, operations, and healthcare. We offer recruiters SHRM certified recruitment training and independent earning opportunity.

 

The Company has four subsidiaries, Recruiter.com, Inc., Recruiter.com Recruiting Solutions LLC (“Recruiting Solutions”), Recruiter.com Consulting, LLC, and VocaWorks, Inc. (“VocaWorks”). The Company operates in Connecticut, Texas, and New York.

 

We generate revenue from the following activities:

 

Consulting and Staffing: Consists of consulting and staffing personnel services provided to customers to satisfy demand for long-term consulting and temporary employee needs;

 

Recruiting Solutions: Consists of placement of specialized personnel at employers generating success-based fees for candidate referrals for direct-hire, facilitated by our Platform and artificial intelligence matching technologies;

 

Career Solutions: Consists of (i) Resume Distribution, whereby we send out candidate resumes to our network of independent recruiters and (ii) Recruiter Certification Program, whereby users access our recruitment training content through our online learning management system (subsequent to March 31, 2020, the Company offered the training program free as a response to COVID-19); and

Cost of revenue primarily consists of third party staffing costs and other fees, outsourced recruiter fees and net margin revenue share.

 

Our results of operations and financial condition may be impacted positively and negatively by certain general macroeconomic and industry wide conditions, such as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The consequences of the pandemic and impact on the U.S. and global economies continue to evolve and the full extent of the impact is uncertain as of the date of this Quarterly Report. The pandemic has had a detrimental effect on many recruitment technology companies and on the general employment and staffing industry, and if the recovery is not robust, the impact could be prolonged and severe. We have reduced certain billing rates to respond to the current economic climate. Additionally, while we have experienced, and could continue to experience, a loss of clients as the result of the pandemic, we expect that the impact of such attrition would be mitigated by the addition of new clients resulting from our continued efforts to adjust the Company’s operations to address changes in the recruitment industry. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will impact our operations, ability to obtain financing or future financial results is uncertain at this time. Management has spent time evaluating shifting market demands and adjusting the Company’s focus. Due to the effects of COVID-19, the Company took steps to streamline certain expenses, such as temporarily cutting certain executive compensation packages by approximately 20%. Management also worked to reduce unnecessary marketing expenditures and worked to improve staff and human capital expenditures, while maintaining overall workforce levels. The Company expects to resume certain expenses, such as compensation, in Q3 2020 if conditions warrant. The Company expects but cannot guarantee that demand for its recruiting solutions will continue to improve in the second half of 2020, as certain clients re-open or accelerate their hiring initiatives. The Company does not expect reductions made in Q2 2020 due to COVID-19 to inhibit its ability to meet client demand. Overall, management is focused on effectively positioning the Company for a rebound in hiring which we expect in the second half of 2020. Ultimately, the recovery may be delayed and the economic conditions may worsen. The Company continues to closely monitor the confidence of its recruiter users and customers, and their respective job requirement load through offline discussions and the Company’s Recruiter Index survey.

The increase resulted primarily from the acquisition in March 2019 of certain assets from Genesys Talent, LLC (“Genesys”). Revenue attributable to the acquired assets was approximately $2,210,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, partially offset by a decrease in revenue from our legacy operations of approximately $60,000 (primarily from a decrease in marketing and publishing revenue). We expect revenue to decrease in the second quarter due to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will impact our revenue in the subsequent future periods is uncertain at this time.

 

Cost of Revenue

 

Cost of revenue was primarily attributable to third party staffing costs and other fees related to the recruitment and staffing business acquired from Genesys. Cost of revenue was $1,751,196 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, and included related party costs of $655,384. There were no comparable costs in the 2019 period. 

 

Our gross profit for the 2020 period was $561,927 which produced a gross profit margin of 24.2%.

 

Operating Expenses

 

We had total operating expenses of $2,416,452 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to $469,682 in the 2019 period. The increase was primarily due to the non-cash amortization of intangibles and increased general and administrative expenses resulting from equity grants to employees and consultants and the integration of the business acquired from Genesys. Operating expenses of approximately $778,000 are attributable to the assets acquired from Genesys in March 2019, which were not present in the 2019 period.

 

Sales and Marketing

 

Our sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2020 were $25,243 compared to $11,576 for the 2019 period, which reflects the focus on growth in our business.

Product Development

 

Our product development expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2020 increased to $83,093 from $60,333 for 2019. The product development expenses in 2020 included approximately $61,000 paid to a development team employed by Recruiter.com Mauritius, a related party. In 2019, product development expenses included approximately $50,000 paid to Recruiter.com Mauritius.

 

Amortization of Intangibles and Impairment Expense

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020, we incurred a non-cash amortization charge of $159,173 related to the intangible assets acquired from Genesys.

 

General and Administrative

 

General and administrative expenses include compensation-related costs for our employees dedicated to general and administrative activities, legal fees, audit and tax fees, consultants and professional services, and general corporate expenses. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, our general and administrative expenses were $2,148,943, including $870,722 of non-cash stock based compensation. In 2019, our general and administrative expenses were $397,773 including $86,705 of non-cash stock based compensation. The increase is attributable primarily to increases in compensation and consulting costs and professional fees, and the integration of the business acquired from Genesys. General and administrative expenses related to Genesys operations were approximately $619,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Other Income (Expenses)

 

Other income (expenses) for the three months ended March 31, 2020 consisted of net expense of $628,080 compared to net expense of $75,942 in the 2019 period. The primary reason for the increase is a non-cash expense of $565,088 from the change in the fair value of the derivative liability from our outstanding warrants issued in 2019. As our common stock price increases, we incur an expense and contrarily if our common stock decreases we recognize other income. We expect the non-cash income from the anticipated forgiveness of the loans we received under the Paycheck Protection Program to increase our other income, or alternatively decrease our other expenses, as the case may be.

 

Net loss

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020, we incurred a net loss of $2,482,605 compared to $382,322 in the 2019 period. After taking into account the accrued preferred stock dividends, we incurred a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $2,482,605 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to $492,016 in the 2019 period. We expect net loss may increase in near-term future periods due to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, which we expect will be partially offset by non-cash income from forgiveness of the loans pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

The following discussion and analysis includes both financial measures in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP, as well as non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally included or excluded in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as supplemental to, and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, operating income, and cash flow from operating activities, liquidity or any other financial measures. They may not be indicative of the historical operating results of Recruiter nor are they intended to be predictive of potential future results. Investors should not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation or as substitutes for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

 

Our management uses and relies on EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that both management and shareholders benefit from referring to the following non-GAAP financial measures in planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating its financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparison. Our management recognizes that the non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations because of the described excluded items.

 

Recruiter defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings (or loss) from continuing operations before the items in the table below. Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of our operating performance because it allows management, investors and analysts to evaluate and assess our core operating results from period-to-period after removing the impact of items of a non-operational nature that affect comparability.

 

We have included a reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. We believe that providing the non-GAAP financial measures, together with the reconciliation to GAAP, helps investors make comparisons between the Company and other companies. In making any comparisons to other companies, investors need to be aware that companies use different non-GAAP measures to evaluate their financial performance. Investors should pay close attention to the specific definition being used and to the reconciliation between such measure and the corresponding GAAP measure provided by each company under applicable SEC rules.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020, net cash used in operating activities was $93,227, compared to net cash used in operating activities of $45,532 for the 2019 period. The increase in cash used in operating activities was attributable to the growth in our business following the March 31, 2019 Asset Purchase offset by non-cash charges, net of the change in fair value of derivative liability and an increase in accounts payable. Net loss (after adjusting for non-cash items) increased by approximately $576,000 and accounts payable and other liabilities increased by approximately $484,000.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020, investing activities provided $14,955 from the sale of marketable securities, compared to $11,500 of cash used in investing activities in the three months ended March 31, 2019, which resulted from cash paid for software development.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020, net cash provided by financing activities was $73,553. The principal factors were $180,778 from advances on receivables and a $25,000 deposit on the purchase of preferred stock, offset by $127,241 of repayments of funds from the sale of future receivables and $4,984 in repayment of notes. In the 2019 period, financing activities provided $479,414, including $434,997 from the sale of preferred stock and $45,005 of proceeds from notes payable.

 

As of June 23, 2020 the Company had approximately $1,980,261 cash on hand. This balance is after receipt of $398,545 borrowed from a bank pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program under the CARES Act guaranteed by the SBA, which we expect to be forgiven in part or in full, subject to our compliance with the conditions of the Paycheck Protection Program. This balance also is after receipt of approximately $2.6 million in net proceeds from the offering of the 12.5% Original Issue Discount Senior Subordinated Convertible Debentures and common stock purchase warrants completed in May and June 2020. Based on the cash on hand as of June 16, 2020, the Company does not have the capital resources to meet its working capital needs for the next 12 months. We are also party to two lines of credit. Advances under each of these lines of credit mature within 12 months of the advances. Availability under these two lines of credit in the amount of $91,300 at March 31, 2020 has been suspended in 2020 due to COVID-19 uncertainty.

 

The Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared using generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America applicable to a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has incurred net losses and negative operating cash flows since inception. For the three months ended March 31, 2020 and the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company recorded net losses of $2,482,605 and $11,843,513, respectively. The Company has not yet established an ongoing source of revenue sufficient to cover its operating costs and allow it to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company obtaining adequate capital to fund operating losses until it becomes profitable.

 

The Company’s historical operating results indicate substantial doubt exists related to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. We can give no assurances that any additional capital that we are able to obtain, if any, will be sufficient to meet our needs, or that any such financing will be obtainable on acceptable terms. If we are unable to obtain adequate capital, we could be forced to cease operations or substantially curtail our commercial activities. These conditions raise substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities should we be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

20

 

 

To date, private equity offerings have been our primary source of liquidity and we expect to fund future operations through additional securities offerings. We have also entered into arrangements with factoring companies to receive advances against certain future accounts receivable in order to supplement our liquidity. However, the COVID-19 pandemic and debt covenants under outstanding debt and other financing arrangements have affected the Company’s ability to receive advances against its future accounts receivable as discussed in more detail below.

 

Financing Arrangements

 

Merchant Receivables Purchase and Security Agreements

 

The Company and its subsidiaries are parties to a Merchant Receivables Purchase and Security Agreement, dated December 6, 2019 (the “First Receivables Purchase Agreement”), with Change Capital Holdings I, LLC (“Change Capital”) and a Merchant Receivables Purchase and Security Agreement, dated December 16, 2019, with Change Capital (the “Second Receivables Purchase Agreement” and together with the First Receivables Purchase Agreement, the “Receivables Purchase Agreements”). Pursuant to the Receivables Purchase Agreements, Change Capital has agreed to advance a total of $450,000 in cash (the “Purchase Price”) and the Company and its subsidiaries agreed to pay Change Capital in equal weekly installments over the course of 52 weeks an amount of approximately $567,000 (the “Specified Amount”), which amount includes the fees payable by the Company under the Receivables Purchase Agreements. As long as no default has occurred under the Receivables Purchase Agreements, the Company has the right to pay the remaining balance of the Specified Amount to Change Capital prior to the due date at a total cost of 3% of the Purchase Price per month. Pursuant to the Receivables Purchase Agreements, the Company and the subsidiaries party to the Receivables Purchase Agreements also granted to Change Capital a security interest in all their assets now owned or acquired in the future. In May 2020, the Receivables Purchase Agreements were amended to limit the outstanding principal amount to $408,777 payable as two payments of $5,452 weekly, plus any default fees, late fees, legal fees and expenses and any other costs or expenses incurred in enforcing Change Capital’s rights under the Receivables Purchase Agreements. As of June 16, 2020, there are no other fees owed under the Receivables Purchase Agreements. The Company does not anticipate receiving any additional advances under the Receivables Purchase Agreements. The Receivables Purchase Agreements contain covenants which limit the Company’s ability to enter into any secured financing agreements without the prior written consent of Change Capital. The transactions pursuant to the Receivables Purchase Agreements have been accounted for as “Sale of Future Revenues.”

 

Agreement with Qwil PBC

 

A wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company is also a party to an arrangement with Qwil PBC, entered into in January 2020, that provides advances against the collection of accounts receivable. Advances made under the agreement are generally repayable in 45 days from the date of the advance and bear interest at 1.5% per month. As of June 23, 2020, we had an outstanding balance in the amount of approximately $55,322 pursuant to this arrangement. In April 2020, Qwil informed the Company that it would not be able to advance additional funds pursuant to this arrangement due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In May 2020, the Company negotiated a more favorable repayment plan with Qwil PBC, which consists of a payment of approximately $7,903 per week for 12 weeks, without additional interest.

 

The advances received pursuant to the arrangements with Change Capital and Qwil are carried as liabilities on our balance sheet and the accounts receivable remain on our books until collected.

 

Senior Subordinated Secured Convertible Debentures

 

In May and June 2020, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement, effective May 28, 2020 (the “Purchase Agreement”) with several accredited investors (the “Purchasers”). Four of the investors had previously invested in the Company’s preferred stock. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company sold to the Purchasers a total of (i) $2,953,125 in the aggregate principal amount of 12.5% Original Issue Discount Senior Subordinated Secured Convertible Debentures (the “Debentures”), and (ii) 1,845,703 common stock purchase warrants (the “Warrants”), which represents 100% warrant coverage. The Company received a total of $2,625,000 in gross proceeds from the offering, taking into account the 12.5% original issue discount, before deducting offering expenses and commissions, including the placement agent’s commission and fees of $295,000 and reimbursement of the placement agent’s and lead investor’s legal fees and the Company’s legal fees in the aggregate amount of $100,000. The Company also agreed to issue to the placement agent, as additional compensation, 369,141 common stock purchase warrants exercisable at $2.00 per share. 

 

The Debentures mature on May 28, 2021, subject to a six-month extension at the Company’s option. The Debentures bear interest at 8% per annum payable quarterly, subject to an increase in case of an event of default as provided for therein. The Debentures are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at any time following the date of issuance at the purchasers’ option at a conversion price of $1.60 per share, subject to certain adjustments. The Debentures are subject to mandatory conversion in the event the Company closes an equity offering of at least $5,000,000 resulting in the listing of the Company’s common stock on a national securities exchange. The Debentures rank senior to all existing and future indebtedness of the Company and its subsidiaries, except for approximately $508,000 of outstanding senior indebtedness. The Company may prepay the Debentures at any time at a premium as provided for therein.

 

The Company’s obligations under the Debentures are secured by a first priority lien on all of the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries, subject to certain existing senior liens. The Company’s obligations under the Debentures are guaranteed by the Company’s subsidiaries.

 

21

 

 

The Securities Purchase Agreement for the Debentures and Warrants contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company, including, among other things and subject to certain exceptions, covenants that restrict the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries, without the prior written consent of the Debenture holders, to incur additional indebtedness, including further advances under a certain preexisting secured loan, and repay outstanding indebtedness, create or permit liens on assets, repurchase stock, pay dividends or enter into transactions with affiliates. The Debentures contain customary events of default, including, but not limited to, failure to observe covenants under the Debentures, defaults on other specified indebtedness, loss of admission to trading on OTCQB or another applicable trading market, and occurrence of certain change of control events. Upon the occurrence of an event of default, an amount equal to 130% of the principal, accrued but unpaid interest, and other amounts owing under each Debenture will immediately come due and payable at the election of each Purchaser, and all amounts due under the Debentures will bear interest at an increased rate. 

In order to meet our working capital needs for the next 12 months, we expect to finance our operations through additional debt or equity offerings. We may not be able to complete these or any other financing transactions on terms acceptable to the Company, or at all. Additionally, any future sales of securities to finance our operations will likely dilute existing shareholders’ ownership. The Company cannot guarantee when or if it will generate positive cash flow. If we are unable to raise sufficient capital to fund our operations, it is likely that we will be forced to reduce or cease operations.

Critical Accounting Estimates and Recent Accounting Pronouncements 

Critical Accounting Estimates 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results and outcomes may differ from management’s estimates and assumptions. Included in these estimates are assumptions used to estimate collection of accounts receivable, fair value of available for sale securities, fair value of derivative liabilities, fair value of securities issued for acquisitions, fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the business combination, fair value of intangible assets and goodwill, valuation of initial right of use assets and corresponding lease liabilities, deferred income tax asset valuation allowances, and valuation of stock based compensation expense.

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”), Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”). Revenues are recognized when control is transferred to customers in amounts that reflect the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for those goods. Revenue recognition is evaluated through the following five steps: (i) identification of the contract, or contracts, with a customer; (ii) identification of the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) determination of the transaction price; (iv) allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and (v) recognition of revenue when or as a performance obligation is satisfied.

 

Revenues are predominantly derived from the following activities:

 

  Consulting and Staffing. Represents consulting and staffing personnel provided to customers to satisfy demand for permanent and temporary employee needs.
     
  Recruiting Solutions. Facilitated by our Job Market software platform and artificial intelligence matching technologies, placement of specialized personnel at employers, generating success-based fees for candidate referrals for direct-hire.

 

  Career Solutions. Consisting of (i) Resume Distribution, whereby we send out candidate resumes to our network of independent recruiters and (ii) Recruiter Certification Program, whereby users access our recruitment training content through an online learning management system.
     
  Marketing Solutions. Web portal monetization, lead generation, and digital publication advertising, structured for specialized B2B software companies to access niche industry audience, primarily of recruitment and HR audience.

 

Consulting and Staffing Services revenues represent services rendered to customers less sales adjustments and allowances. We record substantially all revenue on a gross basis as a principal versus on a net basis as an agent in the presentation of this line of revenues and expenses. We have concluded that gross reporting is appropriate because we have the risk of identifying and hiring qualified employees and has the discretion to select the employees and establish their price and duties and bears the risk for services that are not fully paid for by customers. Consulting and staffing revenues are recognized when the services are rendered by the temporary employees. Payroll and related taxes of employees that are placed on temporary assignment are outsourced to third party payors or related party payors. The payors pay all related costs of employment, including workers’ compensation insurance, state and federal unemployment taxes, social security and certain fringe benefits. We assume the risk of acceptability of the employees to its customers.

 

Direct hire recruitment placement revenues are recognized on a gross basis when the guarantee period specified in the customer contract expires. No fees for direct hire placement services are charged to employment candidates. Any payments received prior to the expiration of the guarantee period are recorded as a deferred revenue liability.

 

Career services revenues are recognized on a gross basis upon distribution of resumes or completion of training courses, which is the point that the performance obligations are satisfied.

 

Marketing and publishing services revenues are recognized on a gross basis when the advertising is placed and displayed or when lead generation activities and online publications are completed, which is the point that the performance obligations are satisfied.

 

Deferred revenue results from transactions in which the Company has been paid for services by customers, but for which all revenue recognition criteria have not yet been met. Once all revenue recognition criteria have been met, the deferred revenues are recognized.

Goodwill

 

Goodwill is comprised of the purchase price of business combinations in excess of the fair value assigned at acquisition to the net tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired. Goodwill is not amortized. The Company tests goodwill for impairment for its reporting units on an annual basis, or when events occur or circumstances indicate the fair value of a reporting unit is below its carrying value.

 

The Company performs its annual goodwill and impairment assessment on December 31st of each year.

 

Long-lived assets

 

Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the book value of the asset may not be recoverable. The Company periodically evaluates whether events and circumstances have occurred that indicate possible impairment. When impairment indicators exist, the Company estimates the future undiscounted net cash flows of the related asset or asset group over the remaining life of the asset in measuring whether or not the asset values are recoverable.

 

Derivative Instruments

 

The Company’s derivative financial instruments consist of embedded derivatives related to the warrants issued with the sale of our preferred stock in 2019. The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments requires that we record the derivatives at their fair values as of the inception date of the debt agreements and at fair value as of each subsequent balance sheet date. Any change in fair value is recorded as non-operating, non-cash income or expense at each balance sheet date. If the fair value of the derivatives was higher at the subsequent balance sheet date, we recorded a non-operating, non-cash charge. If the fair value of the derivatives was lower at the subsequent balance sheet date, we recorded non-operating, non-cash income.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for all stock-based payment awards made to employees, directors and others based on their fair values and recognizes such awards as compensation expense over the vesting period using the straight-line method over the requisite service period for each award as required by FASB ASC Topic No. 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation. If there are any modifications or cancellations of the underlying vested or unvested stock-based awards, we may be required to accelerate, increase or cancel any remaining unearned stock-based compensation expense, or record additional expense for vested stock-based awards. Future stock-based compensation expense and unearned stock- based compensation may increase to the extent we grant additional stock options or other stock-based awards.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements 

 

There have not been any recent changes in accounting pronouncements and ASU issued by the FASB that are of significance or potential significance to the Company except as disclosed below.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, “Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes.” This guidance, among other provisions, eliminates certain exceptions to existing guidance related to the approach for intraperiod tax allocation, the methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period and the recognition of deferred tax liabilities for outside basis differences. This guidance also requires an entity to reflect the effect of an enacted change in tax laws or rates in its effective income tax rate in the first interim period that includes the enactment date of the new legislation, aligning the timing of recognition of the effects from enacted tax law changes on the effective income tax rate with the effects on deferred income tax assets and liabilities. Under existing guidance, an entity recognizes the effects of the enacted tax law change on the effective income tax rate in the period that includes the effective date of the tax law. ASU 2019-12 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of this guidance.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Not applicable.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management carried out an evaluation, with the participation of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, required by Rule 13a-15 or 15d-15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. In making this assessment, our management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsor Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework (2013 framework). Based on their evaluation as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report, our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, have concluded as a result of the material weaknesses described below, that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that the information relating to our Company, required to be disclosed in our SEC reports (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to our management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure as a result of material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Management has determined that, as of December 31, 2019, there were material weaknesses in both the design and effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting. A material weakness in internal controls is a deficiency in internal control, or combination of control deficiencies, that adversely affects our ability to initiate, authorize, record, process, or report external financial data reliably in accordance with GAAP such that there is more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements that is more than inconsequential will not be prevented or detected. In the course of making our assessment of the effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting, we identified at least two material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting. Specifically, (1) we lack a sufficient number of employees to properly segregate duties and provide adequate review of the preparation of the consolidated financial statements and, as of that date, (2) we lacked sufficient independent directors on our Board of Directors to maintain audit and other committees consistent with proper corporate governance standards. As of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report, these material weaknesses have not been cured. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company planned and developed strategies to improve accounting operations and remediate these material weaknesses, including appointing a new Chief Financial Officer. In May 2020, the Board of Directors appointed Judy Krandel as the Chief Financial Officer of the Company, effective immediately upon filing of this Quarterly Report.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15f of the Exchange Act) that occurred during the three months ended March 31, 2020 that has materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
