All statements other than statements of historical facts included or incorporated by reference in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including without limitation, statements regarding our future financial position, business strategy, budgets, projected revenues, projected costs and plans and objectives of management for future operations, are forward-looking statements.

We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

  

NOTE 1 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Nature of the Business

 

Rego Payment Architectures, Inc. (“REGO”) was incorporated in the state of Delaware on February 11, 2008.   Effective February 28, 2017, Virtual Piggy, Inc. changed its name to Rego Payment Architectures, Inc.

 

Rego Payment Architectures, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) is a technology company that will deliver an online and mobile payment platform solution for the family. The system allows parents and their children to manage, allocate funds and track their expenditures, savings and charitable giving on both a mobile device and online through the Company’s web portal.   The Company’s system is designed to allow a minor to transact both online and in traditional brick and mortar retail outlets using the telephone handset as a payment device.  The new payment platform automatically monitors regulatory compliance in real-time for all transactions, including protection of vendors from unintended regulatory infractions.  In addition, utilizing the same architecture individual parents will be able to create a contract with each child that sets the rules and parameters of how the child may use the mobile payment system with as much or as little parental oversight as the parent determines is necessary.  The Company is including specialized technology that increases and improves the security of the system and protects the user’s identity while in use.

 

Management believes that building on its Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) advantage, the future of the Company will be based on the foundational architecture of the system that will allow its use across multiple financial markets where secure controlled payments are needed.  For the under seventeen years of age market, the Company will use its OINK.com brand.  The Company intends to license in each alternative field of use the ability for its partners, distributors and/or value added resellers to private label each of the alternative markets.  These partners will deploy, customize and support each implementation under their own label but with acknowledgement of the Company’s proprietary intellectual assets as the base technology.  Management believes this approach will enable the Company to reduce expenses while broadening its reach.

 

Revenues generated from this system are anticipated to come from multiple sources depending on the level of service and facilities requested by the parent.  There will be levels of subscription revenue paid monthly, service fees, transaction fees and in some cases revenue sharing with banking and distribution partners.

 

ZOOM Payment Solutions, LLC (“ZPS, LLC”)

 

ZPS, LLC was formed in the state of Delaware on December 15, 2017, and Rego Payment Architectures, Inc. owned 78% of ZPS, LLC.  At June 30, 2018, the Company has decided to dissolve ZPS, LLC.

 

ZOOM Solutions, Inc. (“ZS”)

All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP have been condensed.  The accompanying unaudited financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 as filed with the SEC. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2018.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-15,  Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230), Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments . The Update addresses eight specific changes to how cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. The amendments in this Update are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. An entity that elects early adoption must adopt all of the amendments in the same period. The amendments in this Update should be applied using a retrospective transition method to each period presented. There were no material effects to the financial statements.

 

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-09,  Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718), Scope of Modification Accounting . The amendments in this Update provide guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting. The amendments in this Update are effective for all entities for annual periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2017. The amendments in this Update should be applied prospectively to an award modified on or after the adoption date.  There were no material effects to the financial statements.

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-07, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718), Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. The amendments in this Update expand the scope of Topic 718 to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods an services from nonemployees. Prior to this Update, Topic 718 applied only to share-based transactions to employees. Consistent with the accounting requirement for employee share-based payment awards, nonemployee share-based payment awards within the scope of Topic 718 are measured at grant-date fair value of the equity instruments that an entity is obligated to issue when the good has been deliveered or the service has been rendered and any other conditions necessary to earn the right to benefit from the instruments have been satisfied. The amendments in this Update are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within that fiscal year. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than an entity’s adoption date of Topic 606. The adoption of this pronouncement on June 30, 2018 had no material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

NOTE 2 – MANAGEMENT PLANS

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  The Company has incurred significant losses and experienced negative cash flow from operations since inception.  These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Since inception, the Company has focused on developing and implementing its business plan.  The Company believes that its existing cash resources will not be sufficient to sustain operations during the next twelve months.    The Company currently needs to generate revenue in order to sustain its operations.  In the event that the Company cannot generate sufficient revenue to sustain its operations, the Company will need to reduce expenses or obtain financing through the sale of debt and/or equity securities.  The issuance of additional equity would result in dilution to existing shareholders.  The issuance of debt securities convertible into equity securities could also result in dilution to existing shareholders.  If the Company is unable to obtain additional funds when they are needed or if such funds cannot be obtained on terms acceptable to the Company, the Company would likely be unable to execute upon the business plan or pay costs and expenses as they are incurred, which would have a material, adverse effect on the business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

The Company’s current monetization model is to license its platform to merchants to enable them to provide COPPA compliant services for themselves and their customers and to license its technology to joint ventures in specified verticals.

 

As of August 14, 2018, the Company has a cash position of approximately $90,000.  Based upon the current cash position and the Company’s planned expense run rate, management believes the Company does not have funds currently to finance its operations through August 31, 2018.

NOTE 13 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

Issuance of Restricted Shares

 

A restricted stock award (“RSA”) is an award of common shares that is subject to certain restrictions during a specified period. Restricted stock awards are independent of option grants and are generally subject to forfeiture if employment terminates prior to the release of the restrictions. The grantee cannot transfer the shares before the restricted shares vest. Shares of nonvested restricted stock have the same voting rights as common stock, are entitled to receive dividends and other distributions thereon and are considered to be currently issued and outstanding. The Company’s restricted stock awards generally vest over a period of one year. The Company expenses the cost of the restricted stock awards, which is determined to be the fair market value of the shares at the date of grant, straight-line over the period during which the restrictions lapse. For these purposes, the fair market value of the restricted stock is determined based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the grant date. 

 

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company expensed $9,375 and $18,750 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, $2,292 and $9,167 relative to restricted stock awards.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company expensed $946,666 and $1,080,422 and $93,366 and $181,733 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 with respect to options. 

    

In accordance with FASB ASC 505-50,  Equity – Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees , share based compensation with performance conditions should be revalued based on the modification accounting methodology described in FASB ASC 718-20, Compensation—Stock Compensation—Awards Classified as Equity . Upon the adoption of FASB ASU No. 2018-07, the Company has revalued certain stock options with consultants and determined that there was an aggregate increase in fair value of $4,208 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Also upon the adoption of FASB ASU No. 2018-07, nonemployee share-based payment awards within the scope of Topic 718 are measured at grant-date fair value of the equity instruments that an entity is obligated to issue when the good has been delivered or the service has been rendered and any other conditions necessary to earn the right to benefit from the instruments have been satisfied.

 

As of June 30, 2018, there was $522,067 of unrecognized compensation cost related to outstanding stock options. This amount is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.4 years. To the extent the actual forfeiture rate is different from what we have estimated, stock-based compensation related to these awards will be different from the Company’s expectations. The difference between the stock options exercisable at June 30, 2018 and the stock options exercisable and expected to vest relates to management’s estimate of options expected to vest in the future.

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

 

Overview

 

Rego Payment Architectures, Inc. (the “Company,” “we”, or “us”) was incorporated in Delaware on February 11, 2008 under the name Chimera International Group, Inc.  On April 4, 2008, we amended our certificate of incorporation and changed our name to Moggle, Inc.  On August 22, 2011, we filed a Certificate of Ownership with the Secretary of State of Delaware, pursuant to which the Company’s newly-formed wholly-owned subsidiary, Virtual Piggy Incorporated was merged into and with the Company (the “Merger”). In connection with the Merger and in accordance with Section 253 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, the name of the Company was changed from “Moggle, Inc.” to “Virtual Piggy, Inc.”  On February 28, 2017, we amended our certificate of incorporation and changed our name to Rego Payment Architectures, Inc. Our principal offices are located at 18327 Gridley Road, Suite K Cerritos, CA 90703 and our telephone number is (561) 220-0408.

 

As of the date of this report, we have not generated significant revenues.  Our initial business plan was to develop an online game platform to allow game companies to create, monetize and distribute massive multiplayer online games (MMOG). The Company technology was the monetization component of this overall platform (our “Platform”). During 2010, we analyzed the market potential for an expanded Company solution and decided to concentrate our efforts on the delivery of a full-featured Company solution that was not restricted to online gaming. The expanded Company solution is designed to provide a complete online solution for families and parents to teach their children about financial management and spending on gaming, retail, music and entertainment. In late 2013, we rebranded our Company product under the name “Oink®”.  In March 2016, we discontinued our prior Oink product offering.

 

In April 2016, our former Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) resigned and we hired a new CEO who was concentrating on the FinTech industry.  In September 2017, this CEO resigned and we hired a new CEO, whose focus is monetizing the Platform in the FinTech industry and crypto currencies through technology licensing and similar partnerships.  We are focused on building and improving the existing Platform that will act as the foundation for the strategic alignment with the Financial Technology (“FinTech”) industry.  The FinTech industry is composed primarily of startup companies that use software to provide financial services more efficiently and less costly than traditional financial service companies.  With our COPPA compliant technology as an added feature, we believe we will have better market success.

 

Strategic Outlook

 

We believe that the virtual goods market and the FinTech industry will continue to grow over the long term.  Within the market and industry, we intend to provide technology and services to allow transactions with children in compliance with COPPA and similar international privacy laws.  We believe that this particular opportunity is relatively untapped and intend to be a leading provider of online transactions for children.

 

Sustained spending on technology, our ability to raise additional financing, the continued growth of the FinTech industry, and compliance with regulatory and reporting requirements are all external conditions that may affect our ability to execute our business plan.  In addition, the FinTech industry is intensely competitive, and most participants have longer operating histories, significantly greater financial, technical, marketing, customer service and other resources, and greater name recognition.  In addition, certain potential customers, particularly large organizations, may view our small size and limited financial resources as a negative even if they prefer our offering to those of our competitors.

 

Our primary strategic objectives over the next 12-18 months are to increase our user base and the engagement level of that base. We plan to achieve that by implementing our partner-first go to market model in which established payments market leaders and vertical market participants can incorporate and integrate our platform into co-branded payments solutions targeting youth and family or other verticals.  Management believes this approach will enable the Company to reduce expenses while broadening its reach.

 

21

 

Within this model, the Company is incorporating licensing fees.  This should enable the Company to begin creating shareholder value above and beyond consumer transaction fees. As our service grows, we intend to hire additional information technology staff to maintain our product offerings and develop new products to increase our market share.

 

Additionally, the Company has licensed its technology to ZS, which was formed to continue the success in the payments industry and extend the company’s business runway through acquisition of capabilities in blockchain, token development and cloud storage. ZS was formed to implement these specified new technologies and growth opportunities in conjunction with other business partners, as appropriate. 

 

We believe that our near-term success will depend particularly on our ability to develop customer awareness and confidence in our service.  Since we have limited capital resources, we will need to closely manage our expenses and conserve our cash by continually monitoring any increase in expenses and reducing or eliminating unnecessary expenditures. Our prospects must be considered in light of the risks, expenses and difficulties encountered by companies at an early stage of development, particularly given that we operate in new and rapidly evolving markets, that we have limited financial resources, and face an uncertain economic environment. We may not be successful in addressing such risks and difficulties.

 

Results of Operations

 

Comparison of the Three Months Ended June 30, 2018 and 2017

 

The following discussion analyzes our results of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017. The following information should be considered together with our condensed financial statements for such period and the accompanying notes thereto.

 

Net Revenue/Net Loss

 

We have not generated significant revenue since our inception. For the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 we did not generate any revenue.  For the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, we had a net loss of $1,969,219 and $1,055,038. 

 

Sales and Marketing

 

Sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2018 were $5,163 as compared to $19,657 for the three months ended June 30, 2017, a decrease of $14,494. The Company has continued to focus its resources on the development of the platform, during the three months ended June 30, 2018.

 

Product Development

 

Product development expenses were $314,679 and $305,215 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, an increase of $9,464. The current platform development is primarily labor intensive, which is being provided by employees as opposed to employee and consultant labor, therefore the Company has incurred more payroll tax and employee benefit expenses during the three months ended June 30, 2018.

 

22

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses increased $831,835 to $1,435,925 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 from $604,090 for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The increase resulted primarily from options being issued to employees and consultants valued at approximately $924,952, offset by reductions commensurate with implemented cost containment measures.

 

Interest Expense

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2018, the Company incurred interest expense of $213,452 as compared to $126,076 for the three months ended June 30, 2017, an increase of $87,376. The increase in interest expense relates to the issuance of additional 3.5% convertible notes and the fair value of warrants related to notes payable to a stockholder.

 

Results of Operations

 

Comparison of the Six Months Ended June 30, 2018 and 2017

 

The following discussion analyzes our results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017. The following information should be considered together with our condensed financial statements for such period and the accompanying notes thereto.

 

Net Revenue/Net Loss

 

We have not generated significant revenue since our inception. For the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 we did not generate any revenue.  For the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, we had a net loss of $3,054,086 and $2,406,028. 

 

Sales and Marketing

 

Sales and marketing expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2018 were $13,363 as compared to $226,575 for the six months ended June 30, 2017, a decrease of $213,212. The Company has focused its resources on the development of the platform, during the six months ended June 30, 2018.

 

Product Development

 

Product development expenses were $489,180 and $751,926 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, a decrease of $262,746. The current platform development is primarily labor intensive, which is being provided by employees as opposed to employee and consultant labor during the six months ended June 30, 2017.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses increased $895,981 to $2,007,864 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 from $1,111,883 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase resulted primarily from options being issued to employees and consultants valued at approximately $924,952, offset by reductions commensurate with implemented cost containment measures.

 

Interest Expense

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company incurred interest expense of $543,679 as compared to $315,644 for the six months ended June 30, 2017, an increase of $228,035. The increase in interest expense relates to the issuance of additional 3.5% convertible notes and the fair value of warrants related to notes payable to a stockholder.

 

23

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of August 14, 2018, we had cash on hand of approximately $90,000.

    

Net cash used in operating activities decreased $868,470 to $645,938 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to $1,514,408 for the six months ended June 30, 2017.  The decrease resulted primarily from increases in equity issuances in lieu of cash for expenses offset by the increase in loss from operations.

 

Net cash used in investing activities decreased to $0 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to $9,389 for the six months ended June 30, 2017.  There was no need for additional investment in assets during the six months ended June 30, 2018.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities decreased to $639,950 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 from  $1,518,200  for the six months ended June 30, 2017, a decrease of $878,250.  Cash provided by financing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2018, consisted of loans payable and convertible notes payable to provide capital to continue operations.

 

Subsequent to June 30, 2018, the Company raised gross proceeds of $295,943 through the issuance of convertible notes payable.

 

As we have not realized significant revenues since our inception, we have financed our operations through offerings of debt and equity securities.  We do not currently maintain a line of credit or term loan with any commercial bank or other financial institution.  

 

Since our inception, we have focused on developing and implementing our business plan.  We believe that our existing cash resources will not be sufficient to sustain our operations during the next twelve months.    We currently need to generate sufficient revenues to support our cost structure to enable us to pay ongoing costs and expenses as they are incurred, finance the development of our platform, and execute the business plan.  If we cannot generate sufficient revenue to fund our business plan, we intend to seek to raise such financing through the sale of debt and/or equity securities.  The issuance of additional equity would result in dilution to existing shareholders. The issuance of convertible debt may also result in dilution to existing stockholders. If we are unable to obtain additional funds when they are needed or if such funds cannot be obtained on terms acceptable to us, we will be unable to execute upon the business plan or pay costs and expenses as they are incurred, which would have a material, adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Even if we are successful in generating sufficient revenue or in raising sufficient capital in order to complete the Platform, our ability to continue in business as a viable going concern can only be achieved when our revenues reach a level that sustains our business operations.  The launch of the Platform is expected in the third quarter of 2018, however, we do not project that significant revenue will be developed until later in 2018. There can be no assurance that we will raise sufficient proceeds, or any proceeds, for us to implement fully our proposed business plan.  Moreover there can be no assurance that even if the Platform is fully developed and successfully launched, that we will generate revenues sufficient to fund our operations.  In either such situation, we may not be able to continue our operations and our business might fail.

 

Based upon the current cash position and the Company’s planned expense run rate, management believes the Company will not be able to finance its operations beyond August, 2018.

 

24

 

The foregoing forward-looking information was prepared by us in good faith based upon assumptions that we believe to be reasonable. No assurance can be given, however, regarding the attainability of the projections or the reliability of the assumptions on which they are based. The projections are subject to the uncertainties inherent in any attempt to predict the results of our operations, especially where new products and services are involved. Certain of the assumptions used will inevitably not materialize and unanticipated events will occur. Actual results of operations are, therefore, likely to vary from the projections and such variations may be material and adverse to us. Accordingly, no assurance can be given that such results will be achieved. Moreover due to changes in technology, new product announcements, competitive pressures, system design and/or other specifications we may be required to change the current plans. 

 

  Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of June 30, 2018, we do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our financial statements are impacted by the accounting policies used and the estimates and assumptions made by management during their preparation. A complete summary of these policies is included in Note 1 of the Notes to Financial Statements included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017. We have identified below the accounting policies that are of particular importance in the presentation of our financial position, results of operations and cash flows and which require the application of significant judgment by management.

 

Stock-based Compensation

 

We have adopted the fair value recognition provisions Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification (“FASB ASC”) 718. In addition, the Securities and Exchange Commission issued Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 107 “ Share-Based Payment ” (“SAB 107”) in March, 2005, which provides supplemental FASB ASC 718 application guidance based on the views of the SEC. Under FASB ASC 718, compensation cost recognized includes compensation cost for all share-based payments granted beginning January 1, 2006, based on the grant date fair value estimated in accordance with the provisions of FASB ASC 718.

 

We have used the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to estimate the option fair values. The option-pricing model requires a number of assumptions, of which the most significant are, expected stock price volatility, the expected pre-vesting forfeiture rate and the expected option term (the amount of time from the grant date until the options are exercised or expire).

 

All issuances of stock options or other equity instruments to non-employees as consideration for goods or services received by the Company are accounted for based on the fair value of the equity instruments issued.  Non-employee equity based payments that do not vest immediately upon grant are recorded as an expense over the service period, as if the Company had paid cash for the services.  At the end of each financial reporting period, prior to the completion of the services, the fair value of the equity based payments will be re-measured and the non-cash expense recognized during the period will be adjusted accordingly.  Since the fair value of equity based payments granted to non-employees is subject to change in the future, the amount of the future expense will include fair value re-measurements until the equity based payments are fully vested or the service is completed.

  

Revenue Recognition

 

In accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 104, Revenue Recognition (Codified in FASB ASC 606), we will recognize revenue when (i) persuasive evidence of a customer or distributor arrangement exists or acceptance occurs, (ii) a retailer, distributor or wholesaler receives the goods, (iii) the price is fixed or determinable, and (iv) collectability of the sales revenues is reasonably assured. Subject to these criteria, we have generally recognized revenue from our prior Oink product at the time of the sale of the associated goods.
