E&M Ice Cream Company

 

On April 1, 2019, the Company entered into a comprehensive distribution agreement with E&M Ice Cream Company (“E&M”) to establish Tauri-GumTM in the marketplace (the “E&M Distribution Agreement”). The Company has supported the Tauri-GumTM commercial launch with substantial levels of both financial resources and marketing support. The Company had both received payment for and delivered the product for its previously announced $54,000 Tauri-GumTM purchase order during March 2019, and re-orders in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The Company has agreed to issue a one-time issuance of 1,000,000 restricted shares of the Company’s common stock, and to tender a one-time cash payment of $125,000 to E&M. This $125,000 cash component was paid in full to E&M on April 1, 2019, and the value of the shares is reflected in stock-based compensation based on the grant date of April 1, 2019. The Company is awaiting issuance instructions from E&M to issue the shares and therefore as of this report date the shares have not been issued.

Windmill Health Distribution Agreement

 

On June 28, 2019, the Company entered into a distribution agreement with Windmill Health Products, LLC (“Windmill Health”), a New Jersey based distributor, with the intention of increasing and accelerating market penetration of the Company’s Tauri-GumTM product line.

Food and Drug Administration

 

On May 31, 2019, the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) held public hearings to obtain scientific data and information about the safety, manufacturing, product quality, marketing, labeling, and sale of products containing cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds, including CBD. The hearing came approximately five months after the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (more commonly known as the Farm Bill), went into effect and removed industrial hemp from the Schedule I prohibition under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) (industrial hemp means cannabis plants and derivatives that contain no more than 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, on a dry weight basis).

 

Though the Farm Bill removed industrial hemp from the Schedule I list, the Farm Bill preserved the regulatory authority of the FDA over cannabis and cannabis-derived compounds used in food and pharmaceutical products under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) and section 351 of the Public Health Service Act. The FDA has been clear that it intends to use this authority to regulate cannabis and cannabis-derived products, including CBD, in the same manner as any other food or drug ingredient. In addition to holding the hearing, the agency had requested comments by July 2, 2019 regarding any health and safety risks of CBD use, and how products containing CBD are currently produced and marketed, which comment period was then extended by two weeks following July 2nd. As of this report date, the FDA has not issued any guidance on this issue.

 

2019 Increase in Authorized Shares

 

On July 26, 2019, the Company held a meeting of its board of directors.

Cupuaçu Butter Lip Balm

 

On December 23, 2016, the Company entered into a non-exclusive, 12-month license agreement (the “License Agreement”) with Cleveland, Ohio based cosmetics products company Ice + Jam LLC (“Ice + Jam”) to market Ice + Jam’s proprietary cupuaçu butter lip balm, sold under the trademark HerMan® which launched during the quarter ended December 31, 2017.During February of 2018, the Company’s strategy with respect to the HerMan® product was negatively impacted by a series of product defects relating to the twisting mechanism of the lip balm tube. As a result of this and the concomitant halting of selling efforts, the Company had no sales of the HerMan® product during the six months ended September 30, 2019 or the year ended March 31, 2019. The Company has removed the product from the website and the remaining inventory was written off as it was determined that the units were not usable. The Company has discontinued this operation as of March 31, 2019. On April 1, 2019, the Company recognized a gain on the disposal of discontinued operations in the amount of $4,941.

 

Honeywood

 

Following the termination of a proposed 2014 merger between the Company and California-based Honeywood LLC (“Honeywood”), a developer of a topical medicinal cannabis product, on August 1, 2017, the Company entered into a Debt Conversion Agreement, whereby the Company agreed to convert an $170,000 note receivable due from Honeywood, including accrued interest into a 5% membership interest in Honeywood.

 

The Company made an assessment for impairment of its investment in Honeywood at the entity level. During the relationship between the Company and Honeywood, Honeywood had a working capital deficiency and had a history of operating losses. In accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 320-10-35-28, “Investments—Debt and Equity Securities”, a Company may not record an impairment loss on the investment but shall continue to evaluate whether the investment is impaired (that is, shall estimate the fair value of the investment) in each subsequent reporting period until either of the following occurs: a) the investment experiences a recovery of fair value up to (or beyond) its cost; or b) the entity recognizes an other-than-temporary impairment loss. At the time of the Honeywood Conversion Agreement, the receivable balance under the note of $199,119 had been fully written off by the Company in a prior period. As a result of the Honeywood Conversion Agreement, the Company deemed the investment to still have no current value. The Company recorded this investment at $0. Thus, no recovery of bad debt and no impairment will be recognized in this period.

 

Pilus Energy

 

On January 28, 2014, the Company acquired Pilus Energy, LLC (“Pilus”), an Ohio limited liability company and a developer of alternative cleantech energy platforms using proprietary microbial solutions that create electricity while consuming polluting molecules from wastewater.

 

On December 22, 2016, the Company entered in a membership interest transfer agreement with Open Therapeutics whereby the Company sold 80% of its membership interest in Pilus back to Open Therapeutics for consideration of the termination of 80% of the unexercised portion of the warrants to purchase the Company’s common stock. Open Therapeutics agreed to pay to the Company 20% of the net profit generated Pilus Energy from its previous year’s earnings, if any. Through September 30, 2019, there has been no activity recorded by Open Therapeutics with respect to Pilus Energy.

 

On January 12, 2019, the Company and Open Therapeutics agreed to extinguish a $75,000 contingent liability, whereby Open Therapeutics was to receive the first $75,000 of net profit earned from the operations of Pilus Energy in exchange for a one-time issuance of 500,000 restricted shares of Company’s common stock. The shares were recorded at a value of $24,750 ($0.0495 per share). The Company further agreed it would vote its 20% membership interest in Pilus Energy in the same manner that Open Therapeutics votes its membership interest on all matters for which a member vote is required.

 

The Company had fully impaired the value of the patents prior to the sale, and the warrants canceled as a result of this transaction was valueless as there is no intrinsic value to them. The Company has not recorded a gain or loss. Upon Open Therapeutics achieving profitability with respect to this technology, the Company will be the beneficiary of a profit split as noted in the agreement and will recognize revenue from that in the future.

Tauriga Biz Dev Corp

 

On January 4, 2018, the Company announced that its Board of Directors unanimously approved the formation a wholly-owned subsidiary focused on acquiring interest(s) in patents and other intellectual property. This subsidiary, incorporated in Delaware, was named Tauriga IP Acquisition Corp. On March 25, 2018, the Company changed the name to Tauriga Biz Dev Corp. (“Tauriga BDC”).

 

On March 29, 2018 the Company, through Tauriga BDC, entered into an independent sales representative agreement with Blink Charging Co. (“Blink”) (Nasdaq: BLNK) to be a non-exclusive independent sales representative. Under the terms of this agreement with Blink, the Company is permitted to solicit orders from potential customers for electric vehicle (“EV”) charging station placement. Tauriga BDC will be compensated upon contracting for so long as the Company’s acquired prospect remains under contract. This sales agreement is a three-tier model based on whether Tauriga BDC contracts the new customer to purchase equipment outright from Blink or enter into one of two revenue-sharing agreements. In the case Tauriga BDC effectuates a sale of Blink equipment it will receive a one-time sales commission based on the sales price of the equipment sale. In the case where Tauriga BDC secures a revenue sharing agreement with a customer where Blink remains the owner, Tauriga BDC will be paid an on-going commission based off of gross charger revenue, subject to which party paid for the installation. Commission payments under the revenue sharing agreement are subject to minimum revenue generation hurdles.

 

On June 29, 2018, the Company purchased four Blink Level 2 - 40” pedestal chargers for permanent placement in a retail location or locations whereby the Company will pay a variable annual fee based on 7% of total revenue per charging unit. The rest of the proceeds will be split 80/20 between the Company and the host location owner or its assignee. The host location owner to will pay for the cost of providing power to these unit as well as installation costs.

 

As of September 30, 2019, Tauriga BDC has not installed any of these machines in any locations and no revenue has been generated through the Blink contract.

 

Tauriga Sciences Limited

 

On June 10, 2019, the Company formed a wholly owned subsidiary, Tauriga Sciences Limited, with the registrar of Companies for Northern Ireland. Tauriga Sciences Limited is a private limited Company. The entity was established in conjunction with online merchant services. In conjunction to this new entity the Company entered into a two-year lease commencing on June 11, 2019 and expiring on June 30, 2021. The office is located at Regus World Trade Centre Muelle de Barcelona, edif. Sur, 2a Planta Barcelona Cataluña 08039 Spain. Monthly rent payments will be approximately $201 per month (based on the contractual rate of €178 multiplied by the exchange rate of 1.13 on the day the lease agreement was entered into).

 

Going Concern

 

During the fourth quarter of the year ended March 31, 2019, the Company began sales and marketing efforts for its Mint flavored Tauri-GumTM product. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company recognized net sales of $57,134 and recognized a gross profit of $20,006, which has continued into the six months ended September 30, 2019 where the Company recognized net revenue of $114,100 and a gross profit of $23,201. During the first six months of fiscal year 2020, the Company has entered into multiple distribution agreements and has engaged an independent contractor to act as Vice President of Distribution and Marketing. Although the Company had a working capital surplus of $201,968 at September 30, 2019, the Company still believes that there is uncertainty with respect to continuing as a going concern.

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF OPERATIONS (CONTINUED)

 

Going Concern (Continued)

 

On July 1, 2019, months after the NYC Department of Heath announced a ban on cannabidiol in foods and beverages (mainly focused on restaurants and baked goods), the updated New York City Health Code now includes an embargoing of CBD-infused Edible(s) Products (including packaged products). The Company is hopeful that the FDA as well as the New York City Council will implement regulations surrounding the CBD industry in a logical and prompt manner. The FDA’s uncertainty surrounding CBD was the initial cause of the New York City ban, and we believe further clarification from the FDA supporting its safety and regulating its labeling will also offer a clearer pathway to the New York City CBD market. The Company is very well positioned in this argument and has taken a conservative approach towards its products, including, for example, ensuring that its product manufacturer periodically tests for compliance with the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, such as utilizing CBD oils from hemp plants and that it contains 0% THC content. The Company remains confident that this embargo on CBD Edible(s) products will be lifted and/or clarified. As a result of this embargo, the Company has taken the necessary steps to ensure that their marketing efforts are focused on areas outside of New York City, while still maintaining their New York City (the 5 Boroughs) presence.

 

The Company, in the short term, intends to continue funding its operations either through cash-on-hand or through financing alternatives. Management’s plans with respect to this include raising capital through equity markets to fund future operations as well as the possible sale of its remaining marketable securities which had a market value of $246,100 at September 30, 2019. In the event the Company cannot raise additional capital to fund and/or expand operations or fails to raise adequate capital and generate adequate sales revenue, it could result in the Company having to curtail or cease operations.

 

Additionally, even if the Company does raise sufficient capital to support its operating expenses and generate adequate revenues in the short term there can be no assurances that the revenues will be sufficient to enable it to develop business to a level where it will generate profits and cash flows from operations to achieve profitability thereby eliminating its reliance on alternative sources of funding. Although management believes that the Company is in a stronger position it has been in in several years, there is still no guarantee that profitable operations with sufficient cashflow to sustain operations can or will be achieved without the need of alternative financing, which is limited. These matters still raise significant doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern as determined by management. The Company believes that there is uncertainty with respect to continuing as a going concern until the operating business can achieve more than nominal sales and profitable operations and sustain cash flow to operate the Company for a period of twelve months. In the event the Company does need to raise additional capital to fund operations or engage in a transaction, failure to raise adequate capital and generate adequate sales revenues could result in the Company having to curtail or cease operations. Even if the Company does raise sufficient capital to support its operating expenses, acquire new license agreements or ownership interests in life science companies and generate adequate revenues, or the agreements entered into recently are unsuccessful, there can be no assurances that the revenues will be sufficient to enable it to develop business to a level where it will generate profits and cash flows from operations. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern as determined by management. However, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. These condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recovery of the recorded assets or the classification of the liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Revenue Recognition

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). This standard provides a single set of guidelines for revenue recognition to be used across all industries and requires additional disclosures. The updated guidance introduces a five-step model to achieve its core principal of the entity recognizing revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers at an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company adopted the updated guidance effective October 1, 2017 as the Company commenced sales of HerMan® using the full retrospective method. The new standard did not have a material impact on its financial position and results of operations, as it did not change the manner or timing of recognizing revenue.

 

Under ASC 606, in order to recognize revenue, the Company is required to identify an approved contract with commitments to preform respective obligations, identify rights of each party in the transaction regarding goods to be transferred, identify the payment terms for the goods transferred, verify that the contract has commercial substance and verify that collection of substantially all consideration is probable. The adoption of ASC 606 did not have an impact on the Company’s operations or cash flows.

 

On March 29, 2018 the Company, through Tauriga BDC, entered into an independent sales representative agreement with Blink to be a non-exclusive independent sales representative. Under the agreement with Blink, the Company may solicit orders from potential customers for EV charging station placement. Tauriga BDC will be compensated upon contracting for so long as the Company’s acquired prospect remains under contract. This sales agreement is a three-tier model based on whether Tauriga BDC contracts the new customer to purchase equipment outright from Blink or enter into one of two revenue-sharing agreements. In the case Tauriga BDC effectuates a sale of Blink equipment it will receive a one-time sales commission based on the sales price of the equipment sale. In the case where Tauriga BDC secures a revenue sharing agreement with a customer where Blink remains the owner, Tauriga BDC will be paid an on-going commission based off of gross charger revenue, subject to which party paid for the installation. Commission payments under the revenue sharing agreement are subject to minimum revenue generation hurdles.

 

On June 29, 2018, the Company purchased four Blink Level 2 - 40” pedestal chargers for permanent placement in a retail location or locations whereby the Company will pay a variable annual fee based on 7% of total revenue per charging unit. The remainder of the proceeds will be split 80/20 between the Company and the host location owner or its assignee. The host location owner to will pay for the cost of providing power to these unit as well as installation costs.

 

As of September 30, 2019, the Tauriga BDC has not installed any of these machines in any locations, and no revenue has been generated through the Blink contract.

 

The Company recognizes revenue upon the satisfaction of the performance obligation. The Company considers the performance obligation met upon shipment of the product or delivery of the product.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Sales Refunds

 

The Company’s refund policy allows customers to return product for any reason except where the customer does not like the taste of the product. The customer has 30 days from the date of purchase to initiate the process. Returns are limited to one return or exchange per customer. Only purchases up to $100 qualify for a refund. Approved return/refund requests are typically processed within 1-2 business days. For product purchases made through a Tauri-GumTM distributor or retailer, the customer is required to work with original purchase location for any return or exchange. The Company has not established a reserve for returns as of September 30, 2019 however will monitor the refunds to estimate whether a reserve will be required.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. 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 reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash Equivalents

 

For purposes of reporting cash flows, cash equivalents include investment instruments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less. At September 30, 2019, the Company’s cash on deposit with financial institutions did not exceed the total FDIC insurance limit of $250,000. At September 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019, the Company had a cash balance of $30,010 and $385,943, respectively. The Company’s does not expect, in the near term, for its cash balance to exceed the total FDIC insurance limit of $250,000 for other than very short periods of time where the Company would use such cash in excess of insurance in the very short-term in operating activities. To reduce its risk associated with the failure of such financial institution, the Company holds its cash deposits in more than one financial institution and evaluates at least annually the rating of the financial institution in which it holds its deposits. The Company had no cash equivalents as of September 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019.

 

Investment in Trading Securities

 

Investment in trading securities consist of investments in shares of common stock of companies traded on public markets as well as publicly traded warrants of these companies should there be a market for them. These securities are carried on the Company’s balance sheet at fair value based on the closing price of the shares owned on the last trading day before the balance sheet date of this report. Fluctuations in the underlying bid price of the stocks result in unrealized gains or losses. The Company recognizes these fluctuations in value as other income or loss.

 

For investments sold, the Company recognizes the gains and losses attributable to these investments as realized gains or losses in other income or loss.

 

Investment – Cost Method

 

Investment in other companies that are not currently trading, are valued based on the cost method as the Company holds less than 20% ownership in these companies and has no influence over operational and financial decisions of the companies. The Company will evaluate, at least annually, whether impairment of these investments is necessary under ASC 320. As of September 30, 2019, the Company has not impaired any of their cost method investments.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consists of finished goods in salable condition stated at the lower of cost or market determined by the first-in, first-out method. The inventory consists of packaged and labeled salable inventory. Shipping of product to finished good inventory fulfillment center is also included in the total inventory cost. Shipping of product upon sale for online sales is paid by the customer upon ordering for orders of single packs of Tauri-GumTM. For multiple pack or wholesale product orders shipping cost is paid by the Company. As of September 30, 2019, the Company’s inventory on hand had a value of $125,496. The Company also has paid deposits in the amount of $24,063 to the manufacturer, Per Os Bio, towards orders not received as of September 30, 2019. Amounts paid to Per Os Bio for Tauri-GumTM are classified as deposits (other current asset) on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet until the goods are available for sale. The Company has not established any inventory reserve on the Tauri-GumTM as of September 30, 2019.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost and is depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets. Routine maintenance, repairs and replacement costs are expensed as incurred and improvements that extend the useful life of the assets are capitalized. When property and equipment is sold or otherwise disposed of, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are eliminated from the accounts and any resulting gain or loss is recognized in operations.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets consisted of licensing fees and a patent prior to being impaired which were stated at cost. Licenses were amortized over the life of the agreement and patents were amortized over the remaining life of the patent at the date of acquisition.

 

Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share

 

The Company computes per share amounts in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 260 “Earnings per Share” (“EPS”), which requires presentation of basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is computed by dividing the income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is based on the weighted-average number of shares of common stock and common stock equivalents outstanding during the periods; however, potential common shares are excluded for period in which the Company incurs losses, as their effect is anti-dilutive. For the three and six months ended September 30, 2019, basic and fully diluted earnings per share were the same as the Company had losses in this period.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for Stock-Based Compensation under ASC 718 “Compensation-Stock Compensation,” which addresses the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods or services, with a primary focus on transactions in which an entity obtains employee services in share-based payment transactions. ASC 718-10 requires measurement of cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the grant-date fair value of the award (with limited exceptions). Incremental compensation costs arising from subsequent modifications of awards after the grant date must be recognized.

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation awards to non-employees in accordance with ASC 505-50, “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees.” Under ASC 505-50, the Company determines the fair value of the warrants or stock-based compensation awards granted on the grant date as either the fair value of the consideration received, or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. Any stock options or warrants issued to non-employees are recorded in expense and an offset to additional paid-in capital in stockholders’ equity over the applicable service periods using variable accounting through the vesting dates based on the fair value of the options or warrants at the end of each period.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Stock-Based Compensation (Continued)

 

The Company issues stock to consultants for various services. The costs for these transactions are measured at the fair value on the grant date of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The Company recognized consulting expense and a corresponding increase to additional paid-in-capital related to stock issued for services over the term of the related services.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. The reclassifications had no effect on the net loss or cash flows of the Company.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets, primarily fixed assets, are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets might not be recoverable. The Company will perform a periodic assessment of assets for impairment in the absence of such information or indicators. Conditions that would necessitate an impairment assessment include a significant decline in the observable market value of an asset, a significant change in the extent or manner in which an asset is used, or a significant adverse change that would indicate that the carrying amount of an asset or group of assets is not recoverable. For long-lived assets to be held and used, the Company would recognize an impairment loss only if it’s carrying amount is not recoverable through its undiscounted cash flows and measures the impairment loss based on the difference between the carrying amount and estimated fair value.

 

Research and Development

 

The Company expenses research and development costs as incurred. There were no research and development costs for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and $3,852 for the six months ended September 30, 2019 compared to no expense during the same periods in the prior year. The Company is continually evaluating products and technologies in the natural wellness space, including its Tauri-GumTM product including new flavor formulations and other CBD delivery products, as well as any intellectual property or other related technologies. As the Company investigates and develops relationships in these areas, resultant expenses for trademark filings, license agreements, website and product development and design materials will be expensed as research and development. Some costs will be accumulated for subsidiaries prior to formation of any new entities.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

ASC 820 “Fair Value Measurements” defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosure about fair value measurements.

 

The following provides an analysis of financial instruments that are measured subsequent to initial recognition at fair value, grouped into Levels 1 to 3 based on the degree to which fair value is observable:

 

Level 1- fair value measurements are those derived from quoted prices (unadjusted in active markets for identical assets or liabilities);

 

Level 2- fair value measurements are those derived from inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (i.e. as prices) or indirectly (i.e. derived from prices); and

 

Level 3- fair value measurements are those derived from valuation techniques that include inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs).

 

Financial instruments classified as Level 1 – quoted prices in active markets include cash.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Fair Value Measurements (Continued)

 

These condensed consolidated financial instruments are measured using management’s best estimate of fair value, where the inputs into the determination of fair value require significant management judgment to estimation. Valuations based on unobservable inputs are highly subjective and require significant judgments. Changes in such judgments could have a material impact on fair value estimates. In addition, since estimates are as of a specific point in time, they are susceptible to material near-term changes. Changes in economic conditions may also dramatically affect the estimated fair values.

 

Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management for the respective periods. The respective carrying value of certain financial instruments approximated their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments. These financial instruments include cash, investments, short-term notes payable, accounts payable and accrued expenses.

 

Share settled debt

 

The general measurement guidance in ASC 480 requires obligations that can be settled in shares with a fixed monetary value at settlement to be carried at fair value unless other accounting guidance specifies another measurement attribute. The Company has determined that ASC 835-30 is the appropriate accounting guidance for the share-settled debt, which is what was done by setting up the debt discount which is to be amortized to interest expense over the term of the instrument. Amortization of discounts are to be amortized using the effective interest method over the term of the note.

 

ASC 480-10-25-14 requires liability accounting for (1) any financial instrument that embodies and unconditional obligation to transfer a variable number of shares or (2) a financial instrument other than an outstanding share that embodies a conditional obligation to transfer a variable number of shares, provided that the monetary value of the obligation is based solely or predominantly on any of the following: 1. A fixed monetary amount known at inception (e.g. stock settled debt); 2. Variations in something other than the fair value of the issuer’s equity shares (e.g. a preferred share that will be settled in a variable number of common shares with tits monetary value tied to a commodity price); and 3. Variations in the fair value of the issuer’s equity shares, but the monetary value to the counterparty moves inversely to the value of the issuer’s shares (e.g. net share settled written put options, net share settled forward purchase contracts).

 

Notwithstanding the fact that the above instruments can be settled in shares, FASB concluded that equity classification is not appropriate because instruments with those characteristics do not expose the counterparty to risks and rewards similar to those of an owner and, therefore do not create a shareholder relationship. The issuer is instead using its shares as the currency to settle its obligation.

 

The Company has multiple notes that contain discount provisions whereby the holder can exercise conversion rights at a discount to the market price for a 15-day trailing period based on the market volume average weighted price. ASC 470-20 defines this as a beneficial conversion feature which that shall be recognized separately at issuance by allocating a portion of the proceeds equal to the intrinsic value, not to exceed the face value of the note, to additional paid in capital. This segmented value, is to be amortized using the effective interest method over the term of the note.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under the liability method, future tax liabilities and assets are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the amounts reported in the financial statement carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Income Taxes (Continued)

 

Future tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted or substantially enacted income tax rates expected to apply when the asset is realized, or the liability settled. The effect of a change in income tax rates on future income tax liabilities and assets is recognized in income in the period that the change occurs. Future income tax assets are recognized to the extent that they are considered more likely than not to be realized.

 

ASC 740 “Income Taxes” clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements. This standard requires a company to determine whether it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained upon examination based upon the technical merits of the position. If the more-likely-than-not threshold is met, a company must measure the tax position to determine the amount to recognize in the financial statements.

 

As a result of the implementation of this standard, the Company performed a review of its material tax positions in accordance with recognition and measurement standards established by ASC 740 and concluded that the tax position of the Company does not meet the more-likely-than-not threshold as of September 30, 2019.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-07, “Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting” which addresses accounting for issuance of all share-based payments on the same accounting model. Previously, accounting for share-based payments to employees was covered by ASC Topic 718 while accounting for such payments to non-employees was covered by ASC Subtopic 505-50. As it considered recently issued updates to ASC 718, the FASB, as part of its simplification initiatives, decided to replace ASC Subtopic 505-50 with Topic 718 as the guidance for non-employee share based awards. Under this new guidance, both sets of awards, for employees and non-employees, will essentially follow the same model, with small variations related to determining the term assumption when valuing a non-employee award as well as a different expense attribution model for non-employee awards as opposed to employee awards. The ASU is effective for public business entities beginning in 2019 calendar years and one year later for non-public business entities. The Company has determined that there is not a material impact on their condensed consolidated financial position and results of operations as a result of this standard.

 

In February 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842).” The new standard requires lessees to apply a dual approach, classifying leases as either finance or operating leases based on the principle of whether or not the lease is effectively a financed purchase by the lessee. This classification will determine whether lease expense is recognized based on an effective interest method or on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. A lessee is also required to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term of greater than 12 months regardless of their classification. Leases with a term of 12 months or less will be accounted for similar to existing guidance for operating leases.

 

The new guidance is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within that reporting period and is applied retrospectively. Early adoption is permitted. The Company has adopted this standard as of April 1, 2019 (See Note 6).

 

There are several other new accounting pronouncements issued or proposed by the FASB. Each of these pronouncements, as applicable, has been or will be adopted by the Company. Management does not believe any of these accounting pronouncements has had or will have a material impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial position or operating results.

 

Subsequent Events

 

In accordance with ASC 855 “Subsequent Events” the Company evaluated subsequent events after the balance sheet date through the date of issuance.

On June 29, 2018, the Company purchased four Blink Level 2 – 40” pedestal chargers for permanent placement in one or more retail locations whereby the Company will share revenue from these electric car vehicle charging units with such location owner. No depreciation expense has been recorded for the charging units as of September 30, 2019 due to the fact that they have not been placed in service.

 

Depreciation expense for the three and six months ended September 30, 2019 were $232 and $464 compared to $259 and $518 for the same period in the prior year.

 

During the year ended March 31, 2019 the Company disposed of computer equipment valued at $1,632 recognizing a loss on disposal of $907.

 

NOTE 6 – OPERATING LEASE

 

The Company has adopted ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), as of April 1, 2019 and will account for the new lease in terms of the right of use assets and offsetting lease liability obligations for this new lease under this pronouncement. In accordance with ASC 842 - Leases, effective April 1, 2019, the Company recorded a net lease right of use asset and a lease liability at present value of approximately $7,492 and $7,895, respectively. The Company recorded these amounts at present value, in accordance with the standard, using a discount rate of 8% which is representative of the last borrowing rates for notes issued to non-related parties. The right of use asset is composed of the sum of all lease payments, at present value, and is amortized straight line over the life of the expected lease term. For the expected term of the lease the Company used the initial term of the two-year lease. Upon the election by the Company to extend the lease for additional years, that election will be treated as a lease modification and the lease will be reviewed for remeasurement. This lease will be treated as an operating lease under the new standard.

 

The Company has chosen to implement this standard using the modified retrospective model approach with a cumulative-effect adjustment, which does not require the Company to adjust the comparative periods presented when transitioning to the new guidance on April 1, 2019. The Company has also elected to utilize the transition related practical expedients permitted by the new standard. The modified retrospective approach provides a method for recording existing leases at adoption and in comparative periods that approximates the results of a modified retrospective approach. Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of additional net lease assets and lease liabilities of approximately $7,492 and $7,895 as of April 1, 2019, respectively. The difference between the additional lease assets and lease liabilities, net of the deferred tax impact, will be recorded as an adjustment to retained earnings. The standard is not expected to materially impact our consolidated net earnings and had no impact on cash flows.

 

Corporate office – New York

 

On December 1, 2017, the Company relocated its corporate headquarters from Danbury, Connecticut to New York, New York. The Company has entered into a two-year lease at $1,010 per month for the term of the lease. The lease right of use asset for this lease at adoption was $7,492 and will be amortized on a straight-line basis over the remaining term of the lease. For the six months ended September 30, 2019 the Company recorded a lease expense of $6,322. On September 1, 2019, the Company entered into a two-year lease extension with the modified lease expiring November 30, 2021. The lease modification required the Company to remeasure the lease asset and lease liability based on the original lease. The Company recorded a net lease right of use asset and a lease liability at present value of approximately $26,093 for each. The Company recorded these amounts at present value, in accordance with the standard, using a discount rate of 8.98% which was representative of the weighted average borrowing rates for all notes issued to non-related parties based on the respective principal balances at the time of the lease extension. As of September 30, 2019, the value of the unamortized lease right of use asset is $25,126. As of September 30, 2019, the Company’s lease liability was $25,278.

(a) Three-month $180,000 non-convertible debenture dated September 23, 2015 bearing an interest rate of 11.50% per annum. The note matured in December 2015. The Company received cash of $90,000 ($75,000 wired directly to the Company and $15,000 wired directly from Alternative Strategy Partners PTE Ltd. (“ASP”) to compensate a consultant. The balance of this note ($90,000) was to be wired directly to a Japanese based consumer product firm called Eishin, Inc. (“Eishin”), but the holder never provided any documentation evidencing that $90,000 was paid to Eishin. The Company is in dispute with the noteholder, and the Company has not recorded this liability as of December 31, 2018 or March 31, 2018. If the proper documentation is provided to the Company, the Company will record the liability at that time. The Company has not received any type of default notice with respect to this $180,000 non-convertible note. Additionally, the Company has not received any shares in Eishin up to this point. The Company did follow up with Eishin in March 2017, and it was noted that Eishin did not reflect the Company as having this ownership. As a result, the additional $90,000 has not been recognized as outstanding. Upon settlement, this note had accrued interest of $23,468. As a result, the Company and ASP, on May 29, 2019, agreed and acknowledged that they shall have no debt, liability or any obligation between them and that the ASP Loan Agreement is immediately retired (except with respect to the assignment and transfer of the Eishin shares noted above). Since the Eishen rights were not valued on the Company’s balance sheet, the $113,468 liability has been removed from the Company’s balance sheet, as is reflected in the Company’s financial statement as a gain on extinguishment of debt in the amount of $113,467 during the six months ended September 30, 2019.

NOTE 7 – NOTES PAYABLE (CONTINUED)

 

(b) On October 25, 2018, the Company entered into a one year $180,000 convertible note bearing 8% interest with GS Capital Partners, LLC. The note has an original issue discount of $11,750. A portion of the proceeds will be used to retire the two remaining convertible notes on the books of the Company as of December 31, 2018 with GS Capital Partners, LLC. The face value of this note plus accrued interest under the note are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price for each share of common stock equal to 70% of the lowest daily VWAP of the common stock as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets market on which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the common stock may be traded in the future, for the 15 prior trading days including the day upon which a notice of conversion is received by the Company or its transfer agent. In the event the Company experiences a DTC “chill” on its shares, the conversion price shall be decreased to 60% instead of 70% while that “chill” is in effect. Due to the discount to market conversion, a beneficial conversion feature was recorded on this note as a discount to the note in the amount of the $108,111 which will be amortized over the life of the note. This amortization will be reflected as interest cost ratably over the term of the note. Upon an event of default, principal and accrued interest will become immediately due and payable under the notes. Additionally, upon an event of default, notes will accrue interest at a default interest rate of 24% per annum or the highest rate of interest permitted by law. Further, certain events of default may trigger penalty and liquidated damage provisions. This note contains a provision where if the Company shall have defaulted on or breached any term of any other note of similar debt instrument into which the Company has entered and failed to cure such default within the appropriate grace period they would be considered in default of this note. During the first six months this note is in effect, the Company may redeem by paying to GS Capital Partners, LLC an amount as follows: (i) if the redemption is within the first 90 days either note is in effect, then for an amount equal to 120% of the unpaid principal amount of either note along with any interest that has accrued during that period, and (ii) if the redemption is after the 91st day the either note is in effect, but less than the 180th day, then for an amount equal to 133% of the unpaid principal amount of either note along with any accrued interest. During the six months ended September 30, 2019, GS Capital Partners, LLC converted $160,000 of principal and $9,639 of accrued interest into 6,412,022 shares of common stock. Accrued interest as of September 30, 2019 was $1,609. On October 23, 2019, GS Capital Partners, LLC converted the remaining $20,000 of principal and accrued interest, at the conversion date in the amount of $1,591 into 998,207 shares of common stock.
   
(c) On March 14, 2019, the Company entered into a 12-month $300,000 principal face value 8.0% convertible debenture with GS Capital Partners, LLC, with a maturity date of March 13, 2020. The GS Capital Note carries $20,000 original issue discount (OID) and, as such, the initial net proceeds to the Company was $280,000. In connection with this agreement, the Company is obligated to issue 750,000 commitment shares having a value of $142,500 ($0.19 per share) which is reflected as interest expense in the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of operations during the year ended March 31, 2019. These shares were not issued as of March 31, 2019. The Holder is entitled, at its option, to convert all or any amount of the principal face amount of this Note then outstanding into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price for each share of Common Stock equal to 68% of the lowest daily VWAP of the Common Stock as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets exchange for the fifteen (15) prior trading days. Due to the discount to market conversion, a beneficial conversion feature was recorded on this note as a discount to the note in the amount of the full face value of the note which will be amortized over the life of the note. This amortization will be reflected as interest cost ratably over the term of the note. The GS Capital Note may be redeemed by the Company during the first six months from execution, as follows: (i) if the redemption is within the first 90 days, then for an amount equal to 120% of the unpaid principal amount, with any accrued interest; (ii) if the redemption is after the 91st day, but less than the 180th day, then for an amount equal to 133% of the unpaid principal amount, with any accrued interest. The GS Capital Note may not be redeemed after 180 days from the date of execution. At September 30, 2019, this note had accrued interest of $13,151. Also, in conjunction with this note, the 213,334 five-year cashless warrants, associated with the June 27, 2017, $80,000 5% one year note were fully cancelled.

The holder is entitled, at its option, at any time after cash payment, to convert all or any amount of the principal face amount of the GS Note then outstanding into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price for each share of common stock equal to 66% of the lowest daily volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the common stock as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets exchange which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the common stock may be traded in the future, for the fifteen (15) prior trading days including the day upon which a notice of conversion is received by the Company or its transfer agent. Such conversion shall be effectuated by the Company delivering the shares of common stock to the holder within 3 business days of receipt by the Company of the notice of conversion. Accrued but unpaid interest shall be subject to conversion. To the extent the conversion price of the Company’s common stock closes below the par value per share, the Company will take all steps necessary to solicit the consent of the stockholders to reduce the par value to the lowest value possible under law. The Company agrees to honor all conversions submitted pending this increase. In the event the Company experiences a DTC “Chill” on its shares, the conversion price shall be decreased to 56% instead of 66% while that “Chill” is in effect. In no event shall the holder be allowed to affect a conversion if such conversion, along with all other shares of the Company common stock beneficially owned by the holder and its affiliates would exceed 9.9% of the outstanding shares of the common stock of the Company. During the first six months that the GS Capital Note is in effect, the Company may redeem the GS Note by paying to the holder an amount as follows: (i) if the redemption is within the first 90 days of the issuance date, then for an amount equal to 120% of the unpaid principal amount of this Note along with any interest that has accrued during that period, (ii) if the redemption is after the 91st day, but less than the 180th day of the issuance date, then for an amount equal to 133% of the unpaid principal amount of this Note along with any accrued interest.

NOTE 7 – NOTES PAYABLE (CONTINUED)

 

(f) On July 22, 2019, the Company and Jefferson Street Capital, LLC (“Jefferson Street”) consummated entry into a Securities Purchase Agreement where the Company has borrowed $55,000 ($50,000 with original issuance discount reflected) at 10% annual interest under a term of nine-months in the form of a convertible note. The note is convertible into restricted stock of the Company. In connection with this agreement, the Company issued 250,000 commitment shares having a value of $10,500 ($0.042 per share, the closing price of our common stock on the day preceding the note) which was reflected as interest expense in the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of operations during the three months ended September 30, 2019. The restricted stock was valued at the closing price on July 22, 2019. Legal fees of $2,000 were deducted from cash proceeds of the note payable to investor’s counsel, and a $5,000 original issue discount recognized. The Company received cash proceeds of $48,000 at closing. Under the Jefferson Street note, the Company was required initially to reserve 1,000,000 shares of its common stock, and thereafter to increase the reserve up to 15,000,000 shares upon the increase in the Company’s authorized common shares (per a charter amendment via shareholder meeting and approval as approved by the Board of Directors on July 26, 2019), but up to six times the number of shares required for a full conversion. The Company had 75 days from the date of this note to have this increased effectuated. The noteholder may, at any time, at its option, convert all or any amount of the principal face amount of the note then outstanding into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price for each share of Common Stock equal to 65% of the lowest volume weighted average price for the Company’s common stock during the previous fifteen trading day period as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets exchange which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the Common Stock may be traded in the future, including the day upon which a notice of conversion is received by the Company. This note contains a provision where if the Company shall have defaulted on or breached any term of any other note of similar debt instrument into which the Company has entered and failed to cure such default within the appropriate grace period they would be considered in default of this note; however, the Company maintains the option to repay the note in cash within the first 180 days beginning on July 22, 2019 to avoid such default provision triggering event, as more fully described below. During the first 180 days, the Company may prepay the principal amount of this note and accrued interest thereon, with a premium as follows: (a) 120% of the prepayment penalty for redemptions in the first 90 days after the note issuance; and (b) 133% of the prepayment amount if such prepayment was made at any time from (91 days after the issuance date until 180 days after the issuance date). The note is not able to be prepaid after 180 days after the issuance date. Upon an event of default (as defined and described in the note), among other default penalties, the Company shall pay the Default Amount (as defined in the agreement) as well as incur annual interest at a default interest rate of 24% per annum. In consideration of Jefferson Street loaning the Company the proceeds under this note, the Chief Executive Officer has personally guaranteed the prompt, full and complete payment of the outstanding principal amount, accrued and unpaid interest, default interest (if any) and applicable fees (if any), owing by the Company under the note. This personal guaranty will remain in effect until such time that the Company can reserve at least six times the amount of common shares issuable upon full conversion of the note. As of September 30, 2019, this note had accrued interest of $1,054.

(g) On August 12, 2019, the Company received $47,500 net proceeds for the second of two notes (the “Back-End Note”) under a December 20, 2018 security purchase agreement with Adar Alef, LLC whereby the Company issued two 8% convertible redeemable notes in the cumulative principal amount of $110,000. Both notes were for $55,000 and had funded with net proceeds of $47,500, after the deduction of $5,000 for OID and $2,500 in legal fees.

The terms of the Back-End Note required cash funding prior to any conversion thereunder. The Note Receivable was due December 20, 2019, unless certain conditions were not met, in which case both the Back-End Note and the Note Receivable may both have been cancelled.

Additionally, upon an event of default, both notes will accrue interest at a default interest rate of 24% per annum or the highest rate of interest permitted by law. Further, certain events of default may trigger penalty and liquidated damage provisions.

NOTE 10 – PROVISION FOR INCOME TAXES

 

Deferred income taxes are determined using the liability method for the temporary differences between the financial reporting basis and income tax basis of the Company’s assets and liabilities. Deferred income taxes are measured based on the tax rates expected to be in effect when the temporary differences are included in the Company’s tax return. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized based on anticipated future tax consequences attributable to differences between financial statement carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases.

 

The following table summarizes the significant differences between the U.S. Federal statutory tax rate and the Company’s effective tax rate for financial statement purposes for the six months and years ended September 30, 2019 March 31, 2019:

 

    September 30, 2019     March 31,2019  
Federal income taxes at statutory rate     21.00 %     21.00 %
State income taxes at statutory rate     0.00 %     0.00 %
Temporary differences     7.99 %     1.48 %
Permanent differences     0.11 %     0.24 %
Impact of Tax Reform Act     0.00 %     (167.44 )%
Change in valuation allowance     (29.10 )%     144.72 %
Totals     0.00 %     0.00 %

 

Realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon sufficient future taxable income during the period that deductible temporary differences and carry-forwards are expected to be available to reduce taxable income. As the achievement of required future taxable income is uncertain, the Company recorded a valuation allowance.

NOTE 10 – PROVISION FOR INCOME TAXES (CONTINUED)

 

    As of     As of  
    September 30, 2019     March 31, 2019  
Deferred tax assets:                
Net operating losses before non-deductible items   $ 3,850,743     $ 3,685,807  
Loss on disposal of fixed assets     355       355

Net deferred tax assets   $ -     $ -  

 

At September 30, 2019, the Company had a U.S. net operating loss carryforward in the approximate amount of $18.3 million available to offset future taxable income through 2038. The Company established valuation allowances equal to the full amount of the deferred tax assets due to the uncertainty of the utilization of the operating losses in future periods. The valuation allowance increased by $267,170 in the six months ended September 30, 2019 and decreased by $1,516,710 in the year ended March 31, 2019. The net decreases were the result of the tax effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “TCJA”) offset by taxable losses net of timing differences in each of the years.

 

On December 22, 2017, Public Law 115-97, informally referred to as the TCJA was enacted into law. The TCJA provides for significant changes to the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, that impact corporate taxation requirements. Effective January 1, 2018, the federal tax rate for corporations was reduced from 35% to 21% for US taxable income and requires one-time re-measurement of deferred taxes to reflect their value at a lower tax rate of 21%. The effective rate for the year ended March 31, 2018 was 31% as the rate was changed effective January 1, 2018 to the lower rate. Also, mandatory repatriation of untaxed foreign earnings and profits will be taxed at 15.5% to the extent the underlying assets are liquid and 8% on the remaining balance. There are other provisions to the TCJA, such as conversion of a worldwide system to a territorial system, limitations on interest expense and domestic production deductions, which will be effective in fiscal 2019. Given the significant complexity of the TCJA and anticipated additional implementation guidance from the Internal Revenue Service, further implications of the TCJA may be identified in future periods. The Company has adjusted their NOLs and valuation allowances to account for the changes brought about by the TCJA for the three months and year ended September 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019, respectively.

Equity investments

 

Honeywood

 

Effective August 1, 2017, the Company entered into a Debt Conversion Agreement in respect to a secured promissory note issued following the unwinding of the Honeywood acquisition (See NOTE 1), whereby the Company agreed to convert the entire principal and accrued but unpaid interest due under the note into a 5% membership interest in Honeywood.

 

The Company made an assessment for impairment of its investment in Honeywood at the entity level. During the relationship between the Company and Honeywood, Honeywood had a working capital deficiency and had a history of operating losses. In accordance with FASB ASC 320-10-35-28, “Investments—Debt and Equity Securities,” a Company may not record an impairment loss on the investment but shall continue to evaluate whether the investment is impaired (that is, shall estimate the fair value of the investment) in each subsequent reporting period until either of the following occurs: (a) the investment experiences a recovery of fair value up to (or beyond) its cost; or (b) the entity recognizes an other-than-temporary impairment loss. At the time of the Debt Conversion Agreement the receivable balance of $199,119 had been fully written off by the Company in a prior period. As a result of this Debt Conversion Agreement, the Company deemed the investment to still have no current value. The Company recorded this investment at $0. Thus, no recovery of bad debt and no impairment will be recognized in this year.

On October 17, 2019, the Company entered into a Convertible Promissory Note (“BHP Note”), bearing an interest rate of 10% per annum, pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement with BHP Capital NY, Inc. dated October 7, 2019. The BHP Note has a maturity date of July 3, 2020 and carried a $5,000 original issue discount (such that $50,000 was funded to the Company on October 8, 2019). The holder is entitled, at its option, at any time after cash payment, to convert all or any amount of the principal face amount of the BHP Note then outstanding into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price for each share of common stock equal to 65% of the lowest daily volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the common stock as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets exchange, which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the common stock may be traded in the future, for the fifteen (15) prior trading days including the day upon which a notice of conversion is received by the Company or its transfer agent. Holder shall be entitled to deduct $500.00 from the conversion amount in each Notice of Conversion to cover Holder’s deposit fees associated with each Notice of Conversion. The Borrower is required at all times to have authorized and reserved three times the number of shares that would be issuable upon full conversion of the Note (assuming that the 4.99% limitation is not exceeded) in effect, initially 7,000,000 shares. Borrower shall issue and deliver or cause to be issued and delivered to or upon the order of the Holder certificates for the Common Stock issuable upon such conversion within two (2) business days after such receipt. If delivery of the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Note is not delivered by the Deadline due to action and/or inaction of the Borrower, the Borrower shall pay to the Holder $2,000 per day in cash. The Borrower shall have the right, exercisable on not more than three (3) Trading Days prior written notice to the Holder of the Note to prepay the outstanding Note (principal and accrued interest) paying the holder the amounts as follows: : (i) if the redemption is within the first 90 days of the issuance date, then for an amount equal to 120% of the unpaid principal amount of this Note along with any interest that has accrued during that period, (ii) if the redemption is after the 91st day, but less than the 180th day of the issuance date, then for an amount equal to 133% of the unpaid principal amount of this Note along with any accrued interest. The BHP Note may not be redeemed after 180 days. Upon an event of default, among other default provisions set forth in the BHP Note, (i) interest shall accrue at a default interest rate of 24% per annum, (ii) Borrower shall fail to maintain the listing of the Common Stock on at least one of the OTC (which specifically includes the quotation platforms maintained by the OTC Markets Group) or an equivalent replacement exchange, (iii) Borrower shall fail to comply with the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act; and/or the Borrower shall cease to be subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act, (iv) bankruptcy, (v) cessation of operations, (vi) liquidation, (vii) restatement of any financial statements filed by the Borrower with the SEC at any time after 180 days after the Issuance Date for any date or period until this Note is no longer outstanding, if the result of such restatement would, by comparison to the un-restated financial statement, have constituted a material adverse effect on the rights of the Holder with respect to this Note or the Purchase Agreement, and (viii) breach or default by the Borrower of any covenant or other term or condition contained in any of the Other Agreements, after the passage of all applicable notice and cure or grace periods, shall, at the option of the Holder, be considered a default. In the event of default due to restatement, failure to comply with the Exchange act, delisting from exchange or cross default the borrower must pay 150% times the sum the then outstanding principal amount of this Note plus (x) accrued and unpaid interest. During the period where any monies are owed to the Holder pursuant to this Note, if the Borrower engages in any future financing transactions with a third party investor, the Borrower will provide the Holder with written notice thereof promptly but in no event less than 10 days prior to closing any financing transactions. In the event the Holder determines that the terms of the subsequent investment are preferable to the terms of the securities of the Borrower issued to the Holder pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Holder will notify the Borrower in writing. Promptly after receipt of such written notice from the Holder, the Borrower agrees to amend and restate the Securities (which may include the conversion terms of this Note), to be identical to the instruments evidencing the subsequent investment.

The $137,500 face value note matures on August 5, 2020 and bears and interest rate of 10%. The Note holder is entitled, at its option, at any time after cash payment, to convert all or any amount of the principal face amount of the Tangier’s Note then outstanding into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price for each share of common stock equal to 66% of the lowest daily volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the common stock as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets exchange, which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the common stock may be traded in the future, for the twenty (20) prior trading days including the day upon which a notice of conversion is received by the Company or its transfer agent. If the Company is placed on “chilled” status with the DTC, the discount shall be increased by 10%, i.e., from 34% to 44%, until such chill is remedied. If the Company is not DWAC eligible through their transfer agent and DTC’s FAST system, the Conversion Price discount will be increased by 5%, i.e., from 34% to 39%. In the case of both, the Conversion Price discount shall be a cumulative increase of 15%, i.e., from 34% to 49%. Any default of this Note not remedied within the applicable cure period will result in a permanent additional 10% increase, i.e., from 34% to 44%, in the Conversion Price discount in addition to any and all other Conversion Price discounts, as provided above. Any conversion shall be effectuated by the Company delivering the shares of common stock to the Investor within 2 business days of receipt by the Company of the notice of conversion. Accrued but unpaid interest shall be subject to conversion. During the first 180 calendar days that the Tangier’s Note is in effect, the Company may redeem the note by paying to the note holder Investor an amount as follows: (i) if the redemption is within the first 90 days of the issuance date, then for an amount equal to 120% of the unpaid principal amount of this Note along with any interest that has accrued during that period, (ii) if the redemption is after the 91st day, but by the 180th day of the issuance date, then for an amount equal to 133% of the unpaid principal amount of this Note along with any accrued interest. The Company may not redeem the Tangier’s Note after the 180th day from entering into it without written approval by the noteholder.

Holder may not engage in any “shorting” or “hedging” transaction(s) in the Common Stock of the Company prior to conversion. Upon an event of default, among other default provisions set forth in the Tangier’s Note (i) interest shall accrue at a default interest rate of lesser of 20% per annum or the maximum rate permitted under applicable law; (ii) after the occurrence of an Event of Default that results in the eventual acceleration of this Note, an additional 10% increase to the Conversion Price discount will go into effect; (iii) a default in the timely issuance of underlying shares in excess of any conversion not delivered prior to 20 Trading Days after the Conversion Date, the Company shall pay to the Holder as liquidated damages an amount equal to $2,000 per day, until such certificate or certificates are delivered.

Food and Drug Administration

 

On May 31, 2019, the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) held public hearings to obtain scientific data and information about the safety, manufacturing, product quality, marketing, labeling, and sale of products containing cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds, including CBD. The hearing came approximately five months after the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (more commonly known as the Farm Bill), went into effect and removed industrial hemp from the Schedule I prohibition under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) (industrial hemp means cannabis plants and derivatives that contain no more than 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, on a dry weight basis).

 

Though the Farm Bill removed industrial hemp from the Schedule I list, the Farm Bill preserved the regulatory authority of the FDA over cannabis and cannabis-derived compounds used in food and pharmaceutical products under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) and section 351 of the Public Health Service Act. The FDA has been clear that it intends to use this authority to regulate cannabis and cannabis-derived products, including CBD, in the same manner as any other food or drug ingredient. In addition to holding the hearing, the agency had requested comments by July 2, 2019 regarding any health and safety risks of CBD use, and how products containing CBD are currently produced and marketed, which comment period was then extended by two weeks following July 2nd. See our Risk Factors for more information about these items, as well as certain related disclosures included our Results of Operations under the heading “Going Concern”.

 

The Company’s activities are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including failing to secure additional funding, success in developing and marketing its products and the level of competition and potential regulatory enforcement actions. These risks and others are described in greater detail in the risk factors set forth in our annual report on 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2019, as supplemented by the risk factors set forth in Item 1A of Part II of this Form 10-Q.

As a result of the Honeywood Conversion Agreement, the Company deemed the investment to have no current value. The Company recorded this investment at $0.

Commission payments under the revenue sharing agreement are subject to minimum revenue generation hurdles.
