Explanatory Note

 

Restatement of Consolidated Financial Statements

 

We are filing this Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-Q/A (the “Amendment”) to restate the following items of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, which we originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 21, 2018 (the “Original Form 10-Q”):

 

(i) Item 1 of Part I “Financial Information”

 

(ii) Item 2 of Part I “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”

 

(iii) Item 4 of Part I “Controls and Procedures”

 

(iv) Item 6 of Part II “Exhibits”

 

We have also updated the signature page, the certifications of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer in Exhibits 31.1, 31.2, 32.1, and 32.2 and our financial statements formatted in Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL). No other sections were affected, but for the convenience of the reader, the report on Form 10-Q/A restates in its entirety, as amended, our Original Form 10-Q.

 

On August 10, 2018, after discussions with our management and outside advisors, the Audit Committee of our Board of Directors concluded that the restatement of the unaudited interim financial statements included in the Original Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2018 was required to correct errors in the Company’s accounting associated with the valuation of the derivative liability related to the conversion feature included in the convertible note described in Notes 3 and 9(g) during the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

The effect of the error is to (1) decrease the goodwill recorded upon the acquisition of ADEX Corp and subsidiaries by $2,152,200; (2) decrease the fair value of the derivative liability by $2,394,911; and, (3) decrease the net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2018 by $242,711. The Company also reclassified the value of Series A Preferred Stock from permanent equity to mezzanine due to fact that as of March 31, 2018, the Company has an insufficient number of common shares authorized to satisfy conversion of the preferred stock into common stock. The Company determined that the misstated amounts are material to the March 31, 2018 financial statements. As a result, the Company amended and restated the interim financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

This report on Form 10-Q/A has been signed as of a current date and all certifications of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer are given as of a current date. Except as discussed above and as further described in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has not modified, or updated disclosures presented in this Amendment. Accordingly, the Amendment does not reflect events occurring after the Original Form 10-Q or modify or update those disclosures affected by subsequent events. Information not affected by the restatement is unchanged and reflects disclosures made at the time of the filing of the Original Form 10-Q. As a result of these misstatements, the Company has concluded there was a material weakness in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2018. See additional discussion included in Part I, Item 4 of this amended Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A.

SPECTRUM GLOBAL SOLUTIONS, INC.

Notes to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements

March 31, 2018

(Expressed in U.S. dollars)

 

1. Organization and Significant Accounting Policies

 

a. Organization and nature of operations

Spectrum Global Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on January 22, 2007 to acquire and commercially exploit various new energy related technologies through licenses and purchases. On December 8, 2008, the Company continued its corporate jurisdiction out of the State of Nevada and into the province of British Columbia, Canada. On April 25, 2017, the Company entered into and closed on an Asset Purchase Agreement with InterCloud Systems, Inc. (“InterCloud”). Pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company purchased 80.1% of the assets associated with InterCloud’s “AW Solutions” business. After the acquisition of AW Solutions, the Company provides professional, multi-service line, telecommunications infrastructure and outsource services to the wireless and wireline industry. On November 15, 2017, the Company changed its name to “Spectrum Global Solutions, Inc.”. On February 14, 2018, the Company entered into an agreement with InterCloud providing for the sale, transfer, conveyance and delivery to the Company of the remaining 19.9% of the assets associated with InterCloud’s AWS business not already purchased by the Company.

 

b. Condensed financial statements

On February 6, 2018, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement with InterCloud. Pursuant to the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement, InterCloud agreed to sell, and Spectrum agreed to purchase, all of the issued and outstanding capital stock and membership interests of ADEX Corp., ADEX Puerto Rico, LLC and ADEXCOMM (collectively, “ADEX”). On February 27, 2018, the Company completed the acquisition of ADEX. Pursuant to the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Company purchased from InterCloud all of the issued and outstanding capital stock and membership interests of ADEX.

 

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements of the Company should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in the Company’s Transition Report on Form 10-K for the seven month period from June 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. In the opinion of management, the accompanying financial statements reflect all adjustments of a recurring nature considered necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the periods shown.

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates. The results of operations and cash flows for the periods shown are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

 

c. Going concern

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has yet to acquire commercially exploitable energy related technology and is unlikely to generate earnings in the immediate or foreseeable future. The recently acquired AW Solutions business has also incurred losses and experienced negative cash flows from operations during its most recent fiscal years. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from its shareholders, the ability of management to raise additional equity capital through private and public offerings of its common stock, and the attainment of profitable operations. As of March 31, 2018, the Company has an accumulated loss of $22,188,456, and a working capital deficit of $9,472,076. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of one year from the issuance of these financial statements. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Management requires additional funds over the next twelve months to fully implement its business plan. Management is currently seeking additional financing through the sale of equity and from borrowings from private lenders to cover its operating expenditures. There can be no certainty that these sources will provide the additional funds required for the next twelve months.

d. Basis of Presentation/Principles of Consolidation

These consolidated financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries, Carbon Commodity Corporation, Climate ESCO Ltd., Mantra Energy Alternatives Ltd., Mantra China Inc., Mantra China Limited, Mantra Media Corp., Mantra NextGen Power Inc., Mantra Wind Inc., AW Solutions, Inc. (from the date of acquisition, April 25, 2017), Tropical Communications, Inc. (from the date of acquisition, April 25, 2017), AW Solutions Puerto Rico, LLC. (from the date of acquisition, April 25, 2017), ADEX Corp., ADEX Puerto Rico, LLC and ADEXCOMM (from the date of acquisition, February 27, 2018). All the subsidiaries are wholly-owned with the exception of Climate ESCO Ltd., which is 64.55% owned, Mantra Energy Alternatives Ltd., which is 88.21%. All inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated.

  

e. Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to allowance for doubtful accounts, the estimated useful lives and recoverability of long-lived assets, equity component of convertible debt, stock-based compensation, and deferred income tax asset valuation allowances. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company’s estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.

 

f. Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with maturity of three months or less at the time of issuance to be cash equivalents.

 

g. Accounts Receivable

Trade accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amount and do not bear interest. The Company records unbilled receivables for services performed but not billed. At March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, unbilled receivables totaled $1,624,940 and $11,429, respectively, and are included in accounts receivable. Management reviews a customer’s credit history before extending credit. The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts for estimated losses. Estimates of uncollectible amounts are reviewed each period, and changes are recorded in the period in which they become known. Management analyzes the collectability of accounts receivable each period. This review considers the aging of account balances, historical bad debt experience, and changes in customer creditworthiness, current economic trends, customer payment activity and other relevant factors. Should any of these factors change, the estimate made by management may also change. The allowance for doubtful accounts at March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017 was $560,971 and $54,482 respectively.

 

h. Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are stated at cost. The Company depreciates the cost of property and equipment over their estimated useful lives at the following annual rates:

 

  Automotive   3-5 years straight-line basis
  Computer equipment and software   3-7 years straight-line basis
  Leasehold improvements   5 years straight-line basis
  Office equipment and furniture   5 years straight-line basis
  Research equipment   5 years straight-line basis

 

- 7 -

 

 

i. Goodwill

Goodwill was generated through the acquisition of AW Solutions and ADEX as the total consideration paid exceeded the fair value of the net assets acquired.

 

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

The Company tests goodwill by estimating fair value using a Discounted Cash Flow (“DCF”) model. The key assumptions used in the DCF model to determine the highest and best use of estimated future cash flows include revenue growth rates and profit margins based on internal forecasts, terminal value and an estimate of a market participant’s weighted-average cost of capital used to discount future cash flows to their present value. There were no impairment charges during the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

j. Intangible Assets

At March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, definite-lived intangible assets primarily consist of non-compete agreements, tradenames and customer relationships which are being amortized over their estimated useful lives ranging from 1-20 years.

 

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

 

For long-lived assets, impairment losses are only recorded if the asset’s carrying amount is not recoverable through its undiscounted, probability-weighted future cash flows. The Company measures the impairment loss based on the difference between the carrying amount and the estimated fair value. When an impairment exists, the related assets are written down to fair value.

 

k. Long-lived Assets

In accordance with ASC 360, “ Property, Plant and Equipment ”, the Company tests long-lived assets or asset groups for recoverability when events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying amount may not be recoverable. Circumstances which could trigger a review include, but are not limited to: significant decreases in the market price of the asset; significant adverse changes in the business climate or legal factors; accumulation of costs significantly in excess of the amount originally expected for the acquisition or construction of the asset; current period cash flow or operating losses combined with a history of losses or a forecast of continuing losses associated with the use of the asset; and current expectation that the asset will more likely than not be sold or disposed significantly before the end of its estimated useful life. Recoverability is assessed based on the carrying amount of the asset and its fair value, which is generally determined based on the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and the eventual disposal of the asset, as well as specific appraisal in certain instances. An impairment loss is recognized when the carrying amount is not recoverable and exceeds fair value.

 

l. Foreign Currency Translation

Transactions in foreign currencies are translated into the currency of measurement at the exchange rates in effect on the transaction date. Monetary balance sheet items expressed in foreign currencies are translated into U.S. dollars at the exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date. The resulting exchange gains and losses are recognized in income.

 

- 8 -

 

 

The Company’s integrated foreign subsidiaries are financially or operationally dependent on the Company. The Company uses the temporal method to translate the accounts of its integrated operations into U.S. dollars. Monetary assets and liabilities are translated at the exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date. Non-monetary assets and liabilities are translated at historical rates. Revenues and expenses are translated at average rates for the period, except for amortization, which is translated on the same basis as the related asset. The resulting exchange gains or losses are recognized in income.

 

m. Income Taxes

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

 

The Company conducts business, and files federal and state income, franchise or net worth, tax returns in Canada, the United States, in various states within the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. The Company determines its filing obligations in a jurisdiction in accordance with existing statutory and case law. The Company may be subject to a reassessment of federal and provincial income taxes by Canadian tax authorities for a period of three years from the date of the original notice of assessment in respect of any particular taxation year. For Canadian and U.S. income tax returns, the open taxation years range from 2010 to 2017. In certain circumstances, the U.S. federal statute of limitations can reach beyond the standard three year period. U.S. state statutes of limitations for income tax assessment vary from state to state. Tax authorities of Canada and U.S. have not audited any of the Company’s, or its subsidiaries’, income tax returns for the open taxation years noted above.

 

Significant management judgment is required in determining the provision for income taxes, and in particular, any valuation allowance recorded against the Company’s deferred tax assets. Deferred tax assets are regularly reviewed for recoverability. The Company currently has significant deferred tax assets resulting from net operating loss carryforwards and deductible temporary differences, which should reduce taxable income in future periods. The realization of these assets is dependent on generating future taxable income.

 

The Company follows the guidance set forth within ASC Topic 740, “ Income Taxes” (“ASC Topic 740”) which prescribes a two-step process for the financial statement recognition and measurement of income tax positions taken or expected to be taken in an income tax return. The first step evaluates an income tax position in order to determine whether it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, based on the technical merits of the position. The second step measures the benefit to be recognized in the financial statements for those income tax positions that meet the more likely than not recognition threshold. ASC Topic 740 also provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, recognition and classification of interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. Penalties and interest, if incurred, would be recorded as a component of current income tax expense.

 

The Company received a tax notice from the Puerto Rican government requesting payment of taxes related to 2014 in the amount of $166,084 plus penalties and interest of $96,764 for a total obligation due of $262,848. This tax assessment is included in accrued expenses at March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

 

n. Revenue Recognition

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

  

- 9 -

 

 

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

 

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

 

There are also certain considerations related to accounting policies, business processes and internal control over financial reporting that are associated with implementing Topic 606. The Company has evaluated its policies, processes, and control framework for revenue recognition, and identified and implemented the changes needed in response to the new guidance.

 

Lastly, disclosure requirements under the new guidance in Topic 606 have been significantly expanded in comparison to the disclosure requirements under the current guidance, including disclosures related to disaggregation of revenue into appropriate categories, performance obligations, the judgments made in revenue recognition determinations, adjustments to revenue which relate to activities from previous quarters or years, any significant reversals of revenue, and costs to obtain or fulfill contracts.

 

The infrastructure and professional services revenues are derived from contracts to provide technical engineering services along with contracting services to commercial and governmental customers. The Company’s service contracts generally require specific tasks or services that the Company must perform under the contract. The Company recognizes revenues associated with these services upon the completion of the related task or service which is at the time the four revenue recognition criteria have been met. Direct costs incurred related to performance of the task or service are deferred and recorded as prepaid expense and are expensed when the related revenue is recognized.

 

The Company also generates revenue from service contracts with certain customers. These contracts are accounted for under the proportional performance method. Under this method, revenue is recognized in proportion to the value provided to the customer for each project as of each reporting date.

 

The Company records unbilled receivables for revenues earned, but not yet billed.

  

o. Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues includes all direct costs of providing services under our contracts, including costs for direct labor provided by employees, services by independent subcontractors, operation of capital equipment (excluding depreciation and amortization), direct materials, insurance claims and other direct costs.

 

- 10 -

 

 

p. Research and Development Costs

Research and development costs are expensed as incurred.

 

q. Stock-based Compensation

The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718, “ Compensation – Stock Compensation ”, using the fair value method. All transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable.

 

The Company applies ASC 505-50, “ Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees ” with respect to options and warrants issued to non-employees which requires the use of option valuation models to measure the fair value of the options and warrants at the measurement date.

 

The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to calculate the fair value of stock-based awards. This model is affected by the Company’s stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of subjective variables. These subjective variables include, but are not limited to the Company’s expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, and actual and projected employee stock option exercise behaviors. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense in the consolidated statement of operations over the requisite service period.

 

r. Loss Per Share

The Company computes loss per share in accordance with ASC 260, “ Earnings per Share ” which requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) on the face of the income statement. Basic EPS is computed by dividing the loss available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock using the if-converted method. In computing diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive. As of March 31, 2018, the Company had 1,235,555,276 (March 31, 2017 – 647,182,222) common stock equivalents outstanding.

 

s. Comprehensive Loss

ASC 220, “ Comprehensive Income ,” establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive loss and its components in the financial statements. As of March 31, 2018 and 2017, the Company has no items that represent a comprehensive loss and, therefore, has not included a schedule of comprehensive loss in the consolidated financial statements.

 

- 11 -

 

 

t. Recent Accounting Pronouncements

On January 1, 2018, we adopted the new accounting standard ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers , and all of the related amendments (“new revenue standard”) as discussed in Revenue Recognition accounting policy description.

 

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

 

u. Concentrations of Credit Risk

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and accounts receivables. The Company maintains its cash balances with high-credit-quality financial institutions. Deposits held with banks may exceed the amount of insurance provided on such deposits. These deposits may be withdrawn upon demand and therefore bear minimal risk.

 

The Company provides credit to customers on an uncollateralized basis after evaluating client creditworthiness. For the three months ended March 31, 2018, two customers accounted for 22% and 18%, respectively, of consolidated revenues for the period. In addition, amounts due from these customers represented 7% and 22%, respectively, of trade accounts receivable as of March 31, 2018. For the three months ended March 31, 2017, two customers accounted for 54% and 9%, respectively, of consolidated revenues for the period. In addition, amounts due from these customers represented 53% and 13%, respectively, of trade accounts receivable as of March 31, 2017.

 

The Company’s customers are primarily located within the domestic United States of America and Puerto Rico. Revenues generated within the domestic United States of America accounted for approximately 89% of consolidated revenues for the three month period ended March 31, 2018 (84% - 2017). Revenues generated from customers in Puerto Rico accounted for approximately 11% of consolidated revenues for the three month period ended March 31, 2018 (16% - 2017).

 

v. Fair Value Measurements

The Company measures and discloses the estimated fair value of financial assets and liabilities using the fair value hierarchy prescribed by US generally accepted accounting principles. The fair value hierarchy has three levels, which are based on reliable available inputs of observable data. The hierarchy requires the use of observable market data when available. The three-level hierarchy is defined as follows:

 

Level 1 – quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.

 

Level 2 – quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model derived valuations in which significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets; and.

 

Level 3 – fair value measurements derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.

 

- 12 -

 

 

Financial instruments consist principally of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, restricted cash, accounts payable, loans payable and convertible debentures. Derivative liabilities are determined based on “Level 3” inputs, which are significant and unobservable and have the lowest priority. There were no transfers into or out of “Level 3” during the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017. The recorded values of all other financial instruments approximate their current fair values because of their nature and respective relatively short maturity dates or durations.

 

Our financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value measured on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, consisted of the following:

 

      Total fair value at
March 31, 2018

  Description:                                
  Derivative liability (1)     4,749,712                   4,749,712  

 

  (1) The Company has estimated the fair value of these derivatives using the Monte-Carlo model and/or a Binomial Model.

 

Fair value estimates are made at a specific point in time, based on relevant market information and information about the financial statement. These estimates are subjective in nature and involve uncertainties and matters of significant judgment and therefore cannot be determined with precision. Changes in assumptions could significantly affect the estimates. See Note 10 for additional information.

 

w. Derivative Liabilities

The Company accounts for derivative instruments in accordance with ASC Topic 815, ” Derivatives and Hedging ” and all derivative instruments are reflected as either assets or liabilities at fair value in the balance sheet. The Company uses estimates of fair value to value its derivative instruments. Fair value is defined as the price to sell an asset or transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between willing and able market participants. In general, the Company’s policy in estimating fair values is to first look at observable market prices for identical assets and liabilities in active markets, where available. When these are not available, other inputs are used to model fair value such as prices of similar instruments, yield curves, volatilities, prepayment speeds, default rates and credit spreads, relying first on observable data from active markets. Depending on the availability of observable inputs and prices, different valuation models could produce materially different fair value estimates. The values presented may not represent future fair values and may not be realizable. The Company categorizes its fair value estimates in accordance with ASC 820 based on the hierarchical framework associated with the three levels of price transparency utilized in measuring financial instruments at fair value as discussed above. As of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company had a $ 4,708,733 and $4,749,712 derivative liability, respectively.

 

x. Reclassifications

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current presentation.

 

2.

Restatement

 

The Company has restated its quarterly unaudited consolidated financial statements as of and for the period ended March 31, 2018 to correct for a misstatement identified associated with valuation of the derivative liability related to the conversion feature included in the convertible note described in Notes 3 and 9(g), as well as to reclassify preferred stock from permanent equity to mezzanine, during the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

- 13 -

 

 

The effect of the error is to decrease the goodwill recorded upon the acquisition of ADEX by $2,152,200, the fair value of the derivative liability by $2,394,911 and decrease net loss by $242,711 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The effect of the reclassification of preferred stock is to decrease permanent equity and increase the value of mezzanine equity instruments by $317,767. The Company determined that the misstated amounts are material to the March 31, 2018 financial statements. As a result, the Company amended and restated the interim financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

The following tables reflect the impact of the restatement to the consolidated balance sheet and the consolidated statement of operations.

3. ADEX Acquisition

 

a) On February 6, 2018, pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement with InterCloud, the Company purchased, all of the issued and outstanding capital stock and membership interests of ADEX. The Company closed and completed the acquisition on February 27, 2018.

 

The purchase price paid by the Company for the Assets includes the assumption of certain liabilities and contracts associated with ADEX, $3,000,000 in cash, of which $2,500,000 was paid at closing and $500,000 was be retained by the Company for 90 days in order to satisfy any outstanding liabilities of ADEX incurred prior to the closing date, and the issuance to InterCloud of a one-year convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $2,000,000 (the “ADEX Note”).

 

The Company has performed a valuation analysis of the fair market value of ADEX’ assets and liabilities. The following table summarizes the allocation of the preliminary purchase price as of the acquisition date:

4. AWS Acquisition

 

On April 25, 2017, pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement with InterCloud, the Company purchased, 80.1% of the assets associated with InterCloud’s “AW Solutions” business (“AWS”) including, but not limited to, fixed assets, real property, intellectual property, and accounts receivables (collectively, the “Assets”).

 

The purchase price paid by the Company for the Assets includes the assumption of certain liabilities and contracts associated with AWS, the issuance to InterCloud of a convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $2,000,000 (as described in Note 9(j)), and a potential earn-out after three months in an amount equal to the lesser of (i) three times EBITDA (as defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement) of the business for the six-month period immediately following the closing and (ii) $1,500,000. During the seven months ended December 31, 2017, Intercloud agreed to reduce the contingent liability to $793,893, as a result, the Company recorded a $615,518 gain on settlement of debt. The Company also issued Intercloud the convertible note described in Note 9(f) with a principal amount of $793,894 to settle a contingent liability of $793,893.

 

On February 14, 2018, the Company entered into an agreement with InterCloud providing for the sale, transfer, conveyance and delivery to the Company of the remaining 19.9% of the assets associated with InterCloud’s AWS business not already purchased by the Company (collectively, the “Remaining Assets”). The acquisition of the initial 80.1% of AWS took place during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. As consideration for the Remaining Assets, the Company issued InterCloud a common stock purchase warrant that entitles InterCloud to purchase a number of shares equal to 4% of the number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding at the time of exercise at an exercise price of $0.006 per share. The warrant has a three year term.

 

The Company recorded the fair value of the warrant of $259,000, reduced the carrying value of the AWS non-controlling interest from $133,256 to $0 and recorded the difference of $125,744 as additional paid in capital.

- 18 -

 

 

In accordance with ASC 470-20, “ Debt with Conversion and Other Options ”, the Company determined that the convertible debentures contained no embedded beneficial conversion feature as the convertible debentures were issued with a conversion price higher than the fair market value of the Company’s common shares at the time of issuance.

 

In accordance with ASC 470-20, the Company allocated the proceeds of issuance between the convertible debt and the detachable share purchase warrants based on their relative fair values. Accordingly, the Company recognized the fair value of the share purchase warrants of $45,930 as additional paid-in capital and an equivalent discount against the convertible debentures. The Company had recorded accretion expense of $45,930, increasing the carrying value of the convertible debentures to $250,000.

 

On January 19, 2012, the Company entered into a settlement agreement with one of the debenture holders to settle a $50,000 convertible debenture and $122,535 in accounts payable and accrued interest with the debt holder. Pursuant to the agreement, the debt holder agreed to reduce the debt to Cdn$100,000 on the condition that the Company pays the amount of Cdn$2,500 per month for 40 months, beginning March 1, 2012 and continuing on the first day of each month thereafter.

 

On July 18, 2012, the Company entered into a settlement agreement with the $150,000 debenture holder. Pursuant to the settlement agreement, the lender agreed to extend the due date until April 11, 2013 and the Company agreed to pay $43,890 of accrued interest within five days of the agreement (paid), pay the accruing interest on a monthly basis (paid), and pay a $10,000 premium in addition to the $150,000 principal outstanding on April 11, 2013. On April 29, 2013, the Company entered into an amended settlement agreement whereby the lender agreed to extend the due date to September 15, 2013 and the Company agreed to pay $6,836 of interest for the period from April 1 to September 15, 2013 upon execution of the agreement (paid) and granted the lender 100,000 stock options exercisable at $0.12 per share for a period of two years.

Pursuant to the second amendment, on November 15, 2013, the Company agreed to pay interest of $4,438 (paid) and commencing February 1, 2014, the Company would make monthly payments of $10,000 on the outstanding principal and interest. On December 4, 2015, the holder of the convertible debenture entered into an agreement to sell and assign the remaining outstanding principal to a third party. The Company approved and is bound by the assignment and sale agreement.

 

The Company evaluated the modifications and determined that the creditor did not grant a concession. In addition, as the present value of the amended future cash flows had a difference of less than 10% of the cash flows of the original debt, it was determined that the original and new debt instruments are not substantially different. As a result, the modification was not treated as an extinguishment of the debt and no gain or loss was recognized because the fair value of the old debt and new debt remained the same. The Company recorded the fair value of $12,901 for the stock options as additional paid-in capital and a discount. During the year ended May 31, 2014, the Company repaid $40,000 of the debenture. As of May 31, 2014, the Company had accreted $12,901 of the discount bring the carrying value of the convertible debenture to $114,661.

During the year ended May 31, 2017, the Company recorded an additional fee of $21,266 increasing the carrying value to $81,119. On November 16, 2017, the debenture and $15,423 of accrued interest was converted into Series A Preferred Stock as described in Note 10(b).

The Company recognized the intrinsic value of the embedded beneficial conversion feature of $10,000 as additional paid-in capital and reduced the carrying value of the convertible debenture to $nil. The carrying value will be accreted over the term of the convertible debenture up to its face value of $10,000.

- 21 -

 

 

Upon the issuance of the convertible note payable described in Note 9(e), the Company concluded that it only has sufficient shares to satisfy the conversion of some but not all of the outstanding convertible notes, warrants and options. The Company elected to reclassify contracts from equity with the earliest inception date first. As a result, none of the Company’s previously outstanding convertible instruments qualified for derivative reclassification, however, any convertible securities issued after the election, including the convertible note described in Notes 9(e) to 9(g), qualified for derivative classification. The Company reassesses the classification of the instruments at each balance sheet date. If the classification changes as a result of events during the period, the contract is reclassified as of the date of the event that caused the reclassification.

  Balance at the end of the period   $ 4,708,733     $ 4,749,712  

  

The Company uses Level 3 inputs for its valuation methodology for the embedded conversion option liabilities as their fair values were determined by using Monte-Carlo model or a Binomial Model based on various assumptions. 

 

Significant changes in any of these inputs in isolation would result in a significant change in the fair value measurement. As required, these are classified based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The following table shows the assumptions used in the calculations:

 

      Expected Volatility     Risk-free Interest Rate     Expected Dividend Yield     Expected Life (in years)  
                           
  At issuance     0-299 %     0.07-2.42 %     0 %     0.50-3.00  
  At December 31, 2017     259-294 %     1.39-1.89 %     0 %     0.30-2.33  
  At January 3, 2018 upon conversion     280 %     1.41 %     0 %     0.31  
  At February 6, 2018 upon conversion     331 %     1.52 %     0 %     0.22

15. Commitments and Contingencies

   

  (a) On May 23, 2012, a former employee of the Company delivered a Notice of Application seeking judgment against the Company for approximately $55,000. The hearing of that Application took place on July 31, 2012, at which time the former employee obtained judgment in the approximate amount of $55,000. The Company did not defend the amount of the judgment and the amount is included in accounts payable, but claims a complete set-off on the basis that the former employee retains 1,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company as security for payment of the outstanding consulting fees owed to him. On November 30, 2012, the Company commenced a separate action against the former employee seeking a return of the 1,000,000 shares of common stock and a stay of execution of the judgment. That application is pending and has not yet been heard or determined by the court. The payment of the judgment claim of approximately $55,000 is dependent upon whether the former employee will first return the 1,000,000 shares of common stock noted above. The probable outcome of the Company’s claim for the return of the shares cannot yet be determined as the Company has not received a response from the former employee for nearly two years.

Payments were made until December 2014, but have not been made after. The plaintiff was seeking relief of amounts owed along with 10% interest per annum, from the date of judgments. All amounts are recorded in these financial statements. On December 4, 2015, the holder of the convertible debenture entered into an agreement to sell and assign the remaining outstanding principal to a third party. The Company approved and is bound by the assignment and sale agreement.

 

  (c) On September 3, 2015, a former prospective employee of the Company delivered a Notice of Claim seeking judgment against the Company for approximately $11,400. During the year ended May 31, 2017 the prospective employee received a judgement which is recorded in these financial statements.

 

  (d) On March 14, 2016, the Company entered into a consulting agreement. Pursuant to the agreement, the Company will pay the consultant $10,000 per month ($20,000 paid) and issue 550,000 shares per month for a period of three months. At December 31, 2017, the Company had not issued the shares to the consultant due to non-performance.

  

(e) On September 10, 2016, the Company entered into a debt settlement agreement to settle $7,500 of amounts owed for services in exchange for 2,000,000 common shares. The Company has not yet issued the shares. The Company will record the debt settlement upon the issuance of shares.

 

(f) On August 22, 2016, the Company entered into a consulting agreement for the provision of consulting services until November 22, 2016. Pursuant to the agreement the Company will pay the consultant $5,000 per month and issue 2,000,000 shares of common stock to the consultant. On December 7, 2016, the Company entered into a settlement agreement. Pursuant to the agreement, the Company agreed to issue the consultant 1,000,000 common shares in exchange for fully releasing and discharging the Company of any and all further obligations.

On December 8, 2008 we made a jurisdiction change from the State of Nevada into the Province of British Columbia, Canada. We focus our business strategy in the energy sector in the ongoing research and development to commercialize alternative energy technologies and services to the residential, commercial and industrial marketplace. Continued focus and desire is to refine the technologies and exploratory efforts into strategic relationships, joint ventures, partnerships with third parties to assist in commercialization. MEA has successfully acquired and owns a process for the electro-reduction of carbon dioxide (“ERC”) and has secured world licenses for a mixed-reaction fuel cell (“MRFC”) which is in continuous focus toward commercial applications. On May 18, 2018, we divested the entities comprising our energy division, and we do not plan to operate in this segment moving forward.

Our operating results for the three month periods ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 are summarized as follows:

    Difference  
Revenue   $ 4,327,764     $ -     $ 4,327,764  
Operating expenses   $ 1,286,735     $ 139,873     $ 1,146,862

Net income (loss)   $ 79,496     $ (1,042,574 )   $ 1,122,043  

 

Revenue generated during the three months ended March 31, 2018, was $4,327,764 compared to (Nil) revenues during the same period ended March 31, 2017. During this period ended March 31, 2018, all of our revenues and a significant portion of our expenses were generated by our acquired telecommunications division (AW Solutions, Inc.; AW Solutions Puerto Rico, LLC; Tropical Communications, Inc.) on April 25, 2017 and (ADEX Corp, ADEX PUERTO RICO LLC, ADEX TOWERS, INC., ADEX TELECOM, INC.) on February 28, 2018.

 

Expenses

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2018, our operating expenses were $1,286,735 compared to operating expenses of $139,873 for the three month period ended March 31, 2017. The increase on operating expense is a result of the acquisition of ADEX on February 28, 2018, which consisting of ADEX Corp, ADEX PUERTO RICO LLC, ADEX TOWERS, INC. and ADEX TELECOM, INC. These expenses include general and administrative costs, all of our corporate costs, as well as costs from our subsidiaries management personnel and administrative overhead. These costs primarily consist of employee compensation and related expenses, including legal, consulting and professional fees, information technology, provisions for recoveries of bad debt and other costs not directly related to performance of our services under customer contracts. We expect these expenses to continue to generally increase as we expand our operations, but expect that such expenses as a percentage of revenue will decrease if we succeed in increasing revenues.

General and administrative costs were $661,298 for the three months ended March 31, 2018 compared to $132,149 for the three months ended March 31, 2017. Salaries and wages were $577,604 for the three months ended March 31, 2018 compared to $2,121 for the three months ended March 31, 2017. Depreciation and amortization costs were $47,833 for the three months ended March 31, 2018 compared to $5,603 for the three months ended March 31, 2017.

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2018, we had other income of $822,987 compared to other expenses of $902,701 the same period in 2017. The increase was primarily due to a gain on extinguishment of preferred share liability of $287,815 during the three months ended March 31, 2018, a gain on settlement of debt of $561,963 during the three months ended March 31, 2018, compared to a loss on settlement of debt of $5,400 during the same period in 2017, and a decrease in loss from the change in fair value of conversion features of $1,434,599. This was offset by an increase in accretion of discounts on convertible debentures of $592,959.

 

Net Income (Loss)

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2018, we had net income of $79,496, compared to a net loss of $1,042,574 for the same period in 2017.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of March 31, 2018, our total current assets were $6,751,851 and our total current liabilities were $16,223,927, resulting in a working capital deficit of $9,472,076 compared to a working capital deficit of $9,389,007 as of December 31, 2017.

 

We suffered recurring losses from operations. The continuation of our company is dependent upon our company attaining and maintaining profitable operations and raising additional capital as needed. In this regard, we have historically raised additional capital through equity offerings and loan transactions.

 

Cash Flows

 

   

Three Months Ended

(As Restated)

   

Three Months Ended
March 31,
2017

 
Statement of Operations Data:            
             
Net Cash Used In Operating Activities   $ (656,590 )   $ (16,585 )
Net Cash Used In Investing Activities   $ (8,889 )   $ -  
Net Cash Provided by Financing Activities   $ 921,925     $ 15,184  
Change In Cash   $ 256,446     $ (1,401 )

 

The increase in cash that we experienced in the period ended March 31, 2018, compared to the decrease during the period ended March 31, 2017, is primarily due to the acquisition of ADEX and its subsidiaries and increased funding requirements for ongoing operating activities. During the period ended March 31, 2018, the repayment of loans payable of $386,125 was made, and proceeds were received from a note payable of $1,116,306, which created the cash balance as noted above. We expect that our cash position will increase, due to operating profits in the telecommunication division. Over the coming months and year, subject to raising additional funds, we plan to primarily concentrate on our telecommunications business and associated projects.

 

In order to improve our liquidity, we intend to pursue additional equity financing from private placement sales of our equity securities or shareholders loans. There is no assurance that we will be successful in completing any further private placement financing. If we are unable to achieve the necessary additional financing, then we plan to reduce the amounts we spend on our business activities and administrative expenses in order to be within the amount of capital resources that are available to us.

 

As of March 31, 2018, we had cash of $285,339 compared to $Nil as of March 31, 2017. Our cash balance at the beginning of this year was $28,893.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Inflation

 

The effect of inflation on our revenue and operating results has not been significant.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

As a “smaller reporting company”, we are not required to provide the information required by this Item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures.

 

Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rule 13a-15 under the Exchange Act. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and that management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs.

 

Based on management’s evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer concluded that, as a result of the material weaknesses described below, as of December 31, 2017, our disclosure controls and procedures are not designed at a reasonable assurance level and are not effective to provide reasonable assurance that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. The material weaknesses, which relate to internal control over financial reporting, that were identified are:

 

  a) Due to our small size, we do not have a proper segregation of duties in certain areas of our financial reporting process. The areas where we have a lack of segregation of duties include cash receipts and disbursements, approval of purchases and approval of accounts payable invoices for payment. This control deficiency, which is pervasive in nature, results in a reasonable possibility that material misstatements of the consolidated financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis; and
     
  b) We do not have any formally adopted internal controls surrounding its cash and financial reporting procedures.

 

We are committed to improving our financial organization. In addition, we will look to increase our personnel resources and technical accounting expertise within the accounting function to resolve non-routine or complex accounting matters. In addition, as funds are available, we will take the following action to enhance our internal controls: Hiring additional knowledgeable personnel with technical accounting expertise to further support our current accounting personnel, which management estimates will cost approximately $200,000 per annum. As our operations are relatively small we expect that both our technical and accounting expertise will be improved, however our overall financial requirements will only increase. We continue to have net cash losses each quarter, we do not anticipate being able to hire additional internal personnel until such time as our operations are profitable on a cash basis or until our operations are large enough to justify the hiring of additional accounting personnel. We currently engage an outside accounting firm to assist us in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements this past year and will plan to evaluate our internal capabilities as we integrate the business segments to address the sufficient number of internal accounting personnel to achieve compliance. As necessary, we will engage consultants in the future in order to ensure proper accounting for our consolidated financial statements.

 

Due to the fact that our internal accounting staff consists solely of a Chief Executive Officer, who functions as our Principal Accounting Officer, additional personnel will also ensure the proper segregation of duties and provide more checks and balances within the department. Additional personnel will also provide the cross training needed to support us if personnel turn over issues within the department occur. We believe this will greatly decrease any control and procedure issues we may encounter in the future.

  

Changes in internal control over financial reporting.

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2018 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

From time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business. However, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm our business. We are currently not aware of any such legal proceedings or claims that we believe will have, individually or in the aggregate, a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or operating results.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

As a “smaller reporting company,” we are not required to provide the information required by this Item.
