NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of presentation and principles of consolidation

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated upon consolidation.

 

The unaudited consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022 have been prepared by the Company without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary to present fairly our consolidated financial position, results of operations, and cash flows as of June 30, 2023 and 2022, and for the periods then ended, have been made. Those adjustments consist of normal and recurring adjustments. Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the fiscal year as a whole. Accordingly, the unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and notes necessary for a comprehensive presentation of our financial position and results of operations and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2022 included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 28, 2023.

 

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of the unaudited consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates for the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022 include the collectability of accounts and note receivable, valuation of investment in equity securities, the useful life of rental properties and property and equipment, assumptions used in assessing impairment of long-term assets including rental property and investment in unconsolidated joint ventures, valuation allowances for deferred tax assets, the fair value of derivative liability related to interest rate swap liability, and the fair value of non-cash equity transactions, including options and stock-based compensation.

 

Risks and uncertainties

 

The Company’s operations are subject to risk and uncertainties including financial, operational, regulatory and other risks including the potential risk of business failure. The Company conducts a significant portion of its business in states that have legalized and regulated cannabis. Additionally, the Company’s tenants operate in the state-legalized and state-regulated cannabis industry. Consequently, any significant economic downturn in the state markets in which the Company operates or any changes in the federal government’s enforcement of current federal laws or changes in state laws could potentially have a negative effect on the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition. Additionally, substantially all of the Company’s real estate properties are leased under triple-net leases to tenants (each, a “Significant Tenant” and collectively, the “Significant Tenants”). For the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, revenues associated with Significant Tenants amounted to $1,210,235 and $830,773, respectively, which represents 82.9% and 57.8% of the Company’s total revenues, respectively (see Note 3).

 

Fair value of financial instruments

 

The carrying amounts reported in the unaudited consolidated balance sheets for cash, accounts receivable, prepaid expenses and other assets, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and other payables approximate their fair market value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.

 

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement (“ASC 820”), requires companies to determine fair value based on the price that would be received to sell the asset or paid to transfer the liability to a market participant. ASC 820 emphasizes that fair value is a market-based measurement, not an entity-specific measurement.

The guidance requires that assets and liabilities carried at fair value be classified and disclosed in one of the following categories:

 

  Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

  Level 2: Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.

 

  Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data.

 

Other than the interest rate swap, the Company did not identify any other assets or liabilities that are required to be presented on the balance sheets at fair value, on a recurring basis, in accordance with ASC Topic 820.

 

The following table represents the Company’s fair value hierarchy of its financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022.

Interest rate swap

 

In connection with a bank loan executed in 2022, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement to manage interest rate risk related to debt that accrues interest at variable rates. The Company accounts for its interest rate swap agreement in accordance with the guidance related to derivatives and hedging activities. The Company is exposed to market risk from changes in interest rates. The Company agrees to exchange, at specified intervals, the difference between fixed and variable interest amounts calculated by reference to an agreed upon notional principal amount. Interest payments receivable and payable under the terms of the interest rate swap agreement are accrued over the period to which the payment relates and the net difference is treated as an adjustment of interest expense related to the underlying liability. Because the variable interest rates used to calculate payments under the terms of the swap agreement are calculated using different benchmarks than those included in the Company’s variable rate debt agreement, the swap agreement is not considered an effective cash flow hedge.

 

Accordingly, changes in the underlying market value of the remaining swap payments are recognized into income as an increase or decrease to other income (expense) each reporting period. In accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, the Company believes values provided by East West Bank (the “Counterparty”) represent the fair value of its swap agreement. The Company believes that the quality of the Counterparty to its swap agreement mitigates the Counterparty credit risk.

 

The estimated fair value of the interest rate swap agreement is determined by the Counterparty based on market data used by Counterparty and is reflected as a derivative liability on the accompanying unaudited consolidated balance sheet with changes in the fair value reflected in change in fair value of interest rate swap on the accompanying statements of operations. The Company uses derivative financial instruments only to manage interest rate risks and not as investment vehicles.

Cash

 

Cash is carried at cost and represents cash on hand, demand deposits placed with banks or other financial institutions and all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less as of the purchase date of such investments. The Company had no cash equivalents on June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022. The Company’s cash is held at major commercial banks, which may at times exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) limit. To date, the Company has not experienced any losses on its invested cash. On June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company had approximately $2,761,000 and $3,586,000, respectively, of cash in excess of FDIC limits of $250,000. Any loss incurred or a lack of access to such funds above the FDIC limit could have a significant adverse impact on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

 

Accounts receivable

 

The Company recognizes an allowance for losses on accounts receivable in an amount equal to the estimated probable losses net of recoveries. The allowance is based on an analysis of historical bad debt experience, current receivables aging and expected future write-offs, as well as an assessment of specific identifiable customer accounts and notes receivable considered at risk or uncollectible. On January 1, 2023, the Company adopted ASC 326, “Financial Instruments - Credit Losses”. In accordance with ASC 326, an allowance is maintained for estimated forward-looking losses resulting from the possible inability of customers to make required payments (current expected losses). The amount of the allowance is determined principally on the basis of past collection experience and known financial factors regarding specific customers. The expense associated with the allowance for doubtful accounts is recognized in general and administrative expense. During the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company did not record any allowances for doubtful accounts.

 

Investment in unconsolidated joint ventures

 

The Company has equity investments in various privately held entities. The Company accounts for these investments either under the equity method or cost method of accounting depending on the Company’s ownership interest and level of influence. Investments accounted for under the equity method are recorded based upon the amount of the Company’s investment and adjusted each period for its share of the investee’s income or loss. Investments are reviewed for changes in circumstance or the occurrence of events that suggest an other than temporary event where our investment may not be recoverable. The Company evaluates its investments in these entities for consolidation. It considers its percentage interest in the joint venture, evaluation of control and whether a variable interest entity exists when determining whether or not the investment qualifies for consolidation or if it should be accounted for as an unconsolidated investment under the equity method of accounting.

 

If an investment qualifies for the equity method of accounting, the Company’s investment is recorded initially at cost, and subsequently adjusted for equity in net income (loss) and cash contributions and distributions. The net income or loss of an unconsolidated investment is allocated to its investors in accordance with the provisions of the operating agreement of the entity. The allocation provisions in these agreements may differ from the ownership interest held by each investor. Differences, if any, between the carrying amount of our investment in the respective joint venture and the Company’s share of the underlying equity of such unconsolidated entity are amortized over the respective lives of the underlying assets as applicable. These items are reported as a single line item in the statements of operations as income or loss from investments in unconsolidated affiliated entities.

 

Long-term investments

 

Long-term investments include investments in equity securities of entities over which the Company does not have a controlling financial interest or significant influence and are accounted for at fair value. Equity investments without readily determinable fair values are measured at cost with adjustments for observable changes in price or impairments (referred to as the “measurement alternative”). In applying the measurement alternative, the Company performs a qualitative assessment on a quarterly basis and recognizes an impairment if there are sufficient indicators that the fair value of the equity investments is less than carrying values. Changes in value are recorded in non-operating income (loss). On June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, long-term investments consist of an investment in convertible preferred stock that does not have a readily determinable fair value (see Note 5).

 

Rental properties

 

Rental properties are carried at cost, less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Betterments, major renovations and certain costs directly related to the improvement of rental properties are capitalized. Maintenance and repair expenses are charged to expense as incurred. Depreciation is recognized on a straight-line basis over estimated useful lives of the assets, which range from 5 to 39 years. Tenant improvements paid for by the Company are amortized on a straight-line basis over the lives of the related leases, which approximate the useful lives of the assets.

 

Upon the acquisition of real estate, the Company assesses the fair value of acquired assets (including land, buildings and improvements, identified intangibles, such as acquired above-market leases and acquired in-place leases) and acquired liabilities (such as acquired below-market leases) and allocates the purchase price based on these assessments. The Company assesses fair value based on estimated cash flow projections that utilize appropriate discount and capitalization rates and available market information. Estimates of future cash flows are based on a number of factors including historical operating results, known trends, and market/economic conditions.

The Company’s rental properties are individually reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. An impairment exists when the carrying amount of an asset exceeds the aggregate projected future cash flows over the anticipated holding period on an undiscounted basis. An impairment loss is measured based on the excess of the property’s carrying amount over its estimated fair value. Impairment analyses are based on our current plans, intended holding periods and available market information at the time the analyses are prepared.

 

If the Company’s estimates of the projected future cash flows, anticipated holding periods, or market conditions change, the Company’s evaluation of impairment losses may be different and such differences could be material to its consolidated financial statements. The evaluation of anticipated cash flows is subjective and is based, in part, on assumptions regarding future occupancy, rental rates and capital requirements that could differ materially from actual results. For the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company did not record any impairment losses.

 

The Company has land, which is not subject to depreciation. 

 

Escrow deposits

 

The Company is in the business of pursuing real estate acquisitions and investments that may include various contractual instruments to secure a property, such as an Option Agreement or a Purchase and Sale Agreement. These agreements often include the requirement to make escrow deposits. Escrow deposits include cash deposits made by the Company for the future acquisition of properties or for the option to acquire a property. In most cases, upon closing of the acquisition of a property, the escrow deposit will be applied to the purchase price. In some cases, the Company may discontinue pursuit of an acquisition of a property and therefore terminate an existing agreement, which can cause forfeiture of escrow deposits if those deposits are non-refundable. During the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company forfeited escrow deposits of $15,000 which is reflected as a loss on forfeited escrow deposit on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. On June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, escrow deposits amounted to $140,548 and $590,000, respectively.

 

Property and equipment

 

Property and equipment is stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation of property and equipment is provided utilizing the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives. The Company uses a five-year life for office equipment, seven years for furniture and fixtures, and five to ten years for vehicles. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Upon sale or retirement of property and equipment, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is reflected in statements of operations.

 

The Company examines the possibility of decreases in the value of these assets when events or changes in circumstances reflect the fact that their recorded value may not be recoverable.

 

Revenue recognition

 

The Company follows ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”). This standard establishes a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most of the existing revenue recognition guidance. ASC 606 requires an entity to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised 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 and requires certain additional disclosures. 

 

Rental income includes base rents that each tenant pays in accordance with the terms of its respective lease and is reported on a straight-line basis over the non-cancellable term of the lease, which includes the effects of rent abatements under the leases. The Company commences rental revenue recognition when the tenant takes possession of the leased space or controls the physical use of the leased space and the leased space is substantially ready for its intended use. If the lease provides for tenant improvements, the Company determines whether the tenant improvements, for accounting purposes, are owned by the tenant or the Company. When the Company is the owner of the tenant improvements, the tenant is not considered to have taken physical possession or have control of the physical use of the leased asset until the tenant improvements are substantially completed. When the tenant is the owner of the tenant improvements, any tenant improvement allowance (including amounts that can be taken in the form of cash or a credit against the tenant’s rent) that is funded by the Company is treated as a lease incentive receivable and amortized as a reduction of revenue over the lease term.

Currently, the Company’s leases provide for payments with fixed monthly base rents over the term of the leases or annual percentage increases in base rent over the term of the lease. The leases also require the tenant to remit estimated monthly payments to the Company for property taxes and common area maintenance. These payments are recorded as rental income and the related property tax expense is reflected separately on the accompanying unaudited consolidated statements of operations.

 

Revenues from advisory services is recognized when the Company performs services pursuant to its agreements with clients and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Brokerage revenues primarily consist of real estate sales commissions and are recognized upon the successful completion of all required services which is likely to occur upon a lease commencement, when escrow closes on the sale of a property, or as otherwise negotiated between the Brokerage and its clients. In accordance with the guidelines established for reporting revenue gross as a principal versus net as an agent in ASC Topic 606, the Company records commission revenues and expenses on a gross basis. Of the criteria listed in ASC Topic 606, the Company is the primary obligor in the transaction, does not have inventory risk, performs all or part of the service, has credit risk, and has wide latitude in establishing the price of services rendered and discretion in selection of agents and determination of service specifications. Brokerage revenues that are payable upon payment of rent or other events beyond the Company’s control are recognized upon the occurrence of such events.

 

Contract Liabilities

 

Contract liabilities include advisory fees that are deferred and recognized when the services are complete or over the actual or expected contract term, rental revenue received in advance, and other deferred revenue for when the Company receives consideration from an agreement before certain criteria that and been met for revenue to be recognized in conformity with GAAP. During the six months ended June 30, 2023, contract liabilities activities were as follows:

 

   For the Six Months Ended
June 30,
2023
 
Balance on December 31, 2022  $303,315 
Rental payments received in advance   159.507

Customer refund   (2,500)
Balance on June 30, 2023  $451,709 

 

Lease accounting

 

The FASB’s Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)” sets out the principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases for both parties to a contract (i.e., lessees and lessors). The 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 recognize 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 today. The new standard requires lessors to account for leases using an approach that is substantially equivalent to existing guidance for sales-type leases, direct financing leases and operating leases.

 

For leases entered into on or after the effective date, where the Company is the lessor, at the inception of the contract, the Company assesses whether the contract is a sales-type, direct financing or operating lease by reviewing the terms of the lease and determining if the lessee obtains control of the underlying asset implicitly or explicitly. If a change to a pre-existing lease occurs, the Company evaluates if the modification results in a separate new lease or a modified lease. A new lease results when a modification provides additional right of use. The new lease or modified lease is then reassessed to determine its classification based on the modified terms. As disclosed in Note 3, on January 24, 2022 and effective on March 1, 2022, the Chino Valley lease was amended and the monthly base rent was increased to $87,581 due to additional space of 30,000 square feet being leased to the lessee, increasing the premises to a total of 97,312 square feet of operational space. In connection with this lease amendment, the Company paid $500,000 to the tenant as a tenant improvement allowance or lease incentive for investment into the premises, which was capitalized as a lease incentive receivable and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the remaining lease term as a reduction to the lease income. The increase in monthly rent was commensurate with the additional space being leased; therefore, this modification qualifies as a separate contract under ASC 842 which does not require lease classification reassessment. The Company excludes short-term leases having initial terms of 12-months or less as an accounting policy election and recognizes rent expense on a straight-lines basis over the lease term.

The Company records revenues from rental properties for its operating leases where it is the lessor on a straight-line basis. Any revenue on the straight-line basis exceeding the monthly payment amount required on the operating lease is reflected as deferred rent. Effective May 31, 2020, the Company amended its leases for which it is the lessor on its Chino Valley, Tempe, Kingman and Green Valley properties. The amendments resulted in an abatement of rent for the months of June and July 2020. Additionally, in connection with an operating lease on the Company’s Michigan property acquired in December 2022, the Company abated certain lease payments for the period from December 2022 to March 2023. These rent abatements and the effect of recording rent on a straight-line basis resulted in aggregate deferred rent as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 of $328,092 and $204,079, respectively (see Note 3). Additionally, if the lease provides for tenant improvements, the Company determines whether the tenant improvements, for accounting purposes, are owned by the tenant or the Company. When the Company is the owner of the tenant improvements, the tenant is not considered to have taken physical possession or have control of the physical use of the leased asset until the tenant improvements are substantially completed. When the tenant is the owner of the tenant improvements, any tenant improvement allowance (including amounts that can be taken in the form of cash or a credit against the tenant’s rent) that is funded is treated as a lease incentive receivable and amortized as a reduction of revenue over the lease term.

 

For contracts entered into on or after the effective date, where the Company is the lessee, at the inception of a contract, the Company assesses whether the contract is, or contains, a lease. The Company’s assessment is based on: (1) whether the contract involves the use of a distinct identified asset, (2) whether we obtain the right to substantially all the economic benefit from the use of the asset throughout the period, and (3) whether we have the right to direct the use of the asset. The Company allocates the consideration in the contract to each lease component based on its relative stand-alone price to determine the lease payments. For leases where the Company is a lessee, primarily for the Company’s administrative office lease, the Company analyzed if it would be required to record a lease liability and a right of use asset on its consolidated balance sheets at fair value upon adoption of ASU 2016-02.

 

Operating lease right of use asset represents the right to use the leased asset for the lease term and operating lease liability is recognized based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the lease term at commencement date. As most leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company used its incremental borrowing rate of 6% based on the information available at the adoption date or execution of a lease agreement in determining the present value of future payments. Lease expense for minimum lease payments is amortized on a straight-line basis over the lease term and is included in general and administrative expenses in the unaudited consolidated statements of operations.

 

Basic and diluted loss per share

 

Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each period. Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing net loss available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock, common stock equivalents and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and as-if converted method. Potentially dilutive common shares and participating securities are excluded from the computation of diluted shares outstanding if they would have an anti-dilutive impact on the Company’s net losses. The Company’s preferred stock is considered a participating security since the preferred shares are entitled to dividends equal to common share dividends and accordingly, are included in the computation of earnings per share pursuant to the two-class method. The two-class method of computing (loss) income per share is an earnings allocation formula that determines (loss) income per share for common stock and any participating securities according to dividends declared (whether paid or unpaid) and participation rights in undistributed earnings.

Segment reporting

 

Beginning on January 1, 2022, the Company changed its method of internal reporting and determined that the Company operates in two reportable segments which consist of (1) the operations, leasing and management of its leased commercial properties, herein known as the “Property Investment Portfolio” segment, and (2) advisory and brokerage services related to commercial properties, herein known as the “Real Estate Services” segment. The Company has determined that these reportable segments were strategic business units that offered different products. Currently, these reportable segments are being managed separately based on the fundamental differences in their operations.

 

Income tax

 

Deferred income tax assets and liabilities arise from temporary differences between the financial statements and tax basis of assets and liabilities, as measured by the enacted tax rates, which are expected to be in effect when these differences reverse. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are classified as current or non-current, depending upon the classification of the asset or liabilities to which they relate. Deferred tax assets and liabilities not related to an asset or liability are classified as current or non-current depending on the periods in which the temporary differences are expected to reverse. Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

 

The Company follows the provisions of FASB ASC 740-10, “Uncertainty in Income Taxes”. Certain recognition thresholds must be met before a tax position is recognized in the financial statements. An entity may only recognize or continue to recognize tax positions that meet a “more-likely-than-not” threshold. The Company does not believe it has any uncertain tax positions as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 that would require either recognition or disclosure in the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements.

 

Stock-based compensation

 

Stock-based compensation is accounted for based on the requirements of ASC 718 – “Compensation – Stock Compensation”, which requires recognition in the financial statements of the cost of employee, director, and non-employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee, director, or non-employee is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee, director, and non-employee services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award. The Company has elected to recognize forfeitures as they occur as permitted under ASU 2016-09 Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting.

Recently issued accounting pronouncements

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, “Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments” (“ASU 2016-13”). ASU 2016-13 requires financial assets measured at amortized cost to be presented at the net amount expected to be collected. The measurement of expected credit losses is based on relevant information about past events, including historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the collectability of the reported amounts. An entity must use judgment in determining the relevant information and estimation methods that are appropriate in its circumstances. ASU 2016-13 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years, and a modified retrospective approach is required, with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. In November of 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, which delayed the implementation of ASU 2016-13 to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022 for smaller reporting companies which applies to the Company. The adoption of ASU 2016-13 on January 1, 2023 did not have any effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements.

Pursuant to the terms of the 2020 Chino Valley Amendment, the parties agreed that if there is any change in laws such that the dispensing, sale or cultivation of marijuana upon the premises is prohibited or materially and adversely affected as mutually and reasonably determined by Chino Valley and Broken Arrow, Broken Arrow may terminate the 2018 Chino Valley Lease, as amended, by delivering written notice to Chino Valley, together with a termination payment which shall be the sum of (i) any unpaid rent and interest, plus (ii) 5% of the base rent which would have been earned after termination for the balance of the term.

Further, as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, deferred rent of $328,092 and $204,079 is due collectively from the Significant Tenants due to the abatement of rent under the lease agreements discussed above, respectively, and as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, a lease incentive receivable of $463,303 and $477,064 is due from one of the Significant Tenants, respectively, in connection with the $500,000 tenant improvement allowance provided to tenant pursuant to the Chino Valley amendment executed during the year ended December 31, 2022 (see above). Additionally, as discussed above, VSM paid Zoned Arizona the $300,000 Assignment Price. The Company considers the assignment fee paid as a part of the lease payments for the modified lease and shall amortize the $300,000 assignment fees into rental revenue on a straight-line basis over the remaining term of the modified lease through April 2040. On June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, deferred revenue related to this lease modification amounted to $289,952 and $298,565, respectively, and is included in contract liabilities on the accompanying unaudited consolidated balance sheets. 

 

Asset concentration

 

The Company’s real estate properties are leased to Significant Tenants under absolute-net and triple-net leases that terminate through March 2037 and April 2040, respectively. The Company monitors the credit of all tenants to stay abreast of any material changes in credit quality. The Company monitors tenant credit by (1) reviewing financial statements and related metrics and information that are publicly available or that are provided to us upon request, and (2) monitoring the timeliness of rent collections.

 

As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company had an asset concentration related to the Significant Tenants. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Significant Tenants collectively leased approximately 69.1% and 59.8% of the Company’s total assets, respectively. Through June 30, 2023, all rental payments have been made on a timely basis.

 

Industry risk

 

Downturns relating to certain industries or business sectors or the financial stability of the Company’s significant tenants may have a significant adverse impact on the Company’s assets and its ability to pay its operating expenses or pay dividends than if the Company had a diversified property portfolio and service offerings. The Company’s total assets are concentrated into a limited number of tenants who were considered significant tenants. To the extent that the Company’s total assets are concentrated in a limited number of tenants that are in the regulated cannabis industry, downturns relating generally to such industry or business sector, or a decline in the financial stability of the Company’s Significant Tenants may result in defaults on all of the Company’s leases within a short time period, which may reduce the Company’s net income and the value of the Company’s common stock and accordingly, limit the Company’s ability to pay our operating expenses or pay dividends to its stockholders. If the Company’s tenants are prohibited from operating or cannot pay their rent, the Company may not have enough working capital to support its operations and the Company would need to consider seeking out new tenants at rental rates per square foot that may be less than its current rate per square foot.

Investment in unconsolidated joint ventures

 

On June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company held investments with aggregate carrying values of $49,923 and $58,293, respectively. The entities listed below are partially owned by the Company. The Company accounts for these investments under the equity method of accounting as the Company exercises significant influence but does not exercise financial and operating control over these entities. Investments are reviewed for changes in circumstance or the occurrence of events that suggest an other than temporary event where the Company’s investment may not be recoverable. A summary of the Company’s original investments in the unconsolidated affiliated entities and net carrying value amount is as follows:

Total investments in unconsolidated joint venture entities          $176,000   $49,923   $58,293 

 

On April 22, 2021, ZP Data 1 entered into a Limited Liability Company Operating Agreement (the “Beakon Operating Agreement”) with a non-affiliated joint venture partner in connection with the formation of Beakon, LLC (“Beakon”), a Delaware limited liability company formed on April 16, 2021. Pursuant to the Beakon Operating Agreement, ZP Data 1 purchased 50 units of Beakon for $50, which represents 50% of the membership interests of Beakon. Each unit represents, with respect to any member, such member’s: (i) interest in Beakon’s capital, (ii) share of Beakon’s net profits and net losses (and specially allocated items of income, gain, and deduction), and the right to receive distributions of net cash flow from Beakon, (iii) right to inspect Beakon’s books and records, and (iv) right to participate in the management of and vote on matters coming before the members as provided in the Beakon Operating Agreement. The transactions discussed above resulted in a joint venture, in accordance with ASC 323-10 – Investments- Equity and Joint Ventures, between ZP Data 1 and the non-affiliated party. Each of the entities has 50% equity ownership and voting rights, and joint control in Beakon. ZP Data 1 accounts for its investment in Beakon under the equity method of accounting in accordance with ASC 323. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company contributed $86,000 to Beakon. Currently, the licensing company and Beakon have completed the creation of the foundational design, technology platform, and market positioning for Beakon to launch in the cannabis industry. However, in order to successfully launch, the technology platform relies upon a required merchant banking component. This was the primary risk for the Company in its financial investment and for Beakon in moving to a successful launch. While Company management knew this risk was a major factor going into the investment, it was not foreseen exactly when an appropriate merchant banking solution would be available given the federal status of regulated cannabis and specifically the federal banking status as it relates to regulated cannabis, even for ancillary services such as Beakon. During the fourth quarter of 2021, a negative open memo was published and distributed by Visa regarding merchant banking in regulated industries. The Company believes that this occurrence has unexpectedly and significantly increased the risk to the Beakon project and must be remedied prior to the launch of Beakon. The uncertainty related to cannabis banking reform and regulation at the federal level, which the Beakon platform relies upon, is now so uncertain that the Company believes it is most appropriate to cause an impairment of the Beakon investment at this time, while also understanding that Beakon may still very well create material value for the Company in the future. The Company has no further financial or investment obligations at this time. Accordingly, on December 31, 2021, the Company recorded an other-than-temporary impairment loss of $73,970 because it was determined that the fair value of its equity method investment in Beakon was less than its carrying value. Based on management’s evaluation, it was determined that due to market and regulatory conditions, implementing the Company’s business model was at risk and that the Company’s ability to recover the carrying amount of the investment in Beakon was impaired. Beacon is currently inactive.

On May 1, 2021, the Company entered into a Limited Liability Company Operating Agreement (the “Zoneomics Green Operating Agreement”) with a non-affiliated joint venture partner in connection with the formation of Zoneomics Green, LLC (“Zoneomics Green”), a Delaware limited liability company formed on May 1, 2021. Zoneomics Green’s goal is to utilize advanced property technology to provide solutions for property identification in regulated industries such as regulated cannabis. Pursuant to the Zoneomics Green Operating Agreement, the Company purchased 50 units of Zoneomics Green for a capital contribution of $90,000, which represents 50% of the membership interests of Zoneomics Green and the other joint venture partner received 50% of the membership interests for no capital contributions. Each unit represents, with respect to any member, such member’s: (i) interest in Zoneomics Green’s capital, (ii) share of Zoneomics Green’s net profits and net losses (and specially allocated items of income, gain, and deduction), and the right to receive distributions of net cash flow from Zoneomics Green, (iii) right to inspect Zoneomics Green’s books and records, and (iv) right to participate in the management of and vote on matters coming before the members as provided in the Zoneomics Green Operating Agreement. The transactions discussed above resulted in a joint venture, in accordance with ASC 323-10 – Investments- Equity and Joint Ventures, between the Company and the non-affiliated party. Each of the entities has 50% equity ownership and voting rights, and joint control in Zoneomics Green. In June 2021, the Company contributed $90,000 to Zoneomics Green.

Investment in equity securities

 

On June 24, 2022, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, ZP Data Platform 2 LLC, purchased 875 shares of Series A convertible preferred stock of Anami Technology, Inc., a California corporation, for $50,000, or $57.14 per share. The Company’s ownership percentage is less than 20% and it does not have the ability to exercise significant influence as described in ASC 323-10-15-6. This equity instrument does not have a readily determinable fair value. Accordingly, the Company elected to measure this equity security at its cost minus impairment, if any. If the Company identifies observable price changes in orderly transactions for the identical or a similar investment of the same issuer, the Company shall measure the equity security at fair value as of the date that the observable transaction occurred. If the Company subsequently elects to measure this equity security at fair value, the Company shall measure all identical or similar investments of the same issuer, including future purchases of identical or similar investments of the same issuer, at fair value. The election to measure this equity security at fair value shall be irrevocable. Any resulting gains or losses on the securities for which that election is made shall be recorded in earnings at the time of the election. On June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, investment in equity securities amounted to $50,000.

East West Bank Swap note

 

On July 11, 2022, Zoned Arizona entered into a Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), dated as of July 11, 2022, by and between Zoned Arizona and East West Bank (the “Bank”). Pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement, subject to and upon the satisfaction of the terms and conditions of the Loan Agreement, Zoned Arizona could request advances under a multiple access loan (“MAL”) during the MAL. On July 11, 2022, in connection with the Loan Agreement, Zoned Arizona paid loan and other fees of $176,472, and in connection with the First Amendment to the Loan Agreement discussed below, paid additional fees of $8,124. These loan and other fees aggregating $184,596 are reflected as a debt discount and are being amortized ratably and charged to interest expense over the term of the related debt.

 

The proceeds of each advance under the MAL may be used by Zoned Arizona to refinance the real property at 410 S. Madison Drive, Tempe, AZ 85251 (the “Property”) or to conduct certain acts related to the acquisition, improvement and maintenance of real property. On termination of the MAL, all unpaid principal, unpaid and accrued interest, and all other amounts due under the MAL will be immediately due and payable.

 

At any time before July 11, 2023, Zoned Arizona may elect to commence paying principal together with interest on the MAL (the “Early Amortization Election”) in accordance with the repayment terms set forth in the variable rate note initially evidencing the MAL, executed by Zoned Arizona in favor of the Bank (the “Note”). If Zoned Arizona makes the Early Amortization Election, then (i) Zoned Arizona will not be entitled to any further advances under the MAL, and (ii) the 25-year amortization schedule referenced in the Note will be from the date Zoned Arizona makes the Early Amortization Election.

 

The Loan Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants customary for a transaction of this type. Among other things, the Loan Agreement provides as follows: (a) upon the occurrence of an event of default, the outstanding principal balance of the MAL will not at any time exceed 65% of the Property’s most recent appraised value; (b) upon the occurrence of an event of default, Zoned Arizona will maintain a minimum Non-Cannabis Debt Service Coverage Ratio (as hereinafter defined) of 1.40 to 1.00; (c) Zoned Arizona will at all times maintain a minimum debt service coverage ratio of 1.50 to 1.0; and (d) Zoned Arizona and the Company, collectively, will maintain at all times, liquid assets of at least the sum of all tenant securities deposits under leases, plus $350,000 in operating reserves.

 

Prior to First Amendment executed on December 7, 2022 in which the Company exercised its Early Amortization (see below), all advances under the MAL were to bear interest at a variable rate equal to the greater of (a) the prime rate plus 2%, or (b) a floor rate equal to the sum of the prime rate as of July 11, 2022 plus 2.25%. From July 11, 2022 to July 11, 2023, Zoned Arizona was to make interest payments on the outstanding principal balance of the MAL. From and after July 11, 2023 and continuing until July 11, 2028 (the “Maturity Date”), Zoned Arizona would pay principal together with interest on the MAL in 60 monthly installments based on the interest rate set forth in the Note and a principal amortization schedule of 25 years from July 11, 2023 (or if Zoned Arizona makes the Early Amortization Election, from the date such election is made).

 

Zoned Arizona may prepay the outstanding principal under the Note, at any time, subject to the provisions of the Note. If Zoned Arizona prepays all, but not less than all, of the outstanding principal balance of the MAL at any time until July 11, 2023, then Zoned Arizona will also pay a premium equal to 1% of the amount prepaid.

On December 7, 2022, Zoned Arizona and the Bank entered into a First Amendment to Loan Agreement (the “First Amendment”). Pursuant to the terms of the First Amendment, Zoned Arizona has elected to make its Early Amortization Election (defined in the First Amendment and Loan Agreement), which election requires Zoned Arizona to commence paying principal and interest on the MAL as set forth in the Amended Note (defined below). Except as provided in the First Amendment, the terms of the Loan Agreement remain in full force and effect. Pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement and First Amendment, on December 7, 2022, Zoned Arizona issued an Amended and Restated Promissory Note (the “Amended Note”) to the Bank. The Amended Note has an original principal amount of $4,500,000, a 50% loan-to-value as determined by the bank-ordered appraisal completed on the Tempe Property. The Amended Note requires Zoned Arizona to pay monthly principal and interest payments to the Bank at an interest rate equal to the prime rate plus 0.75%. The Amended Note matures 10 years after its effective date and payments are calculated based on a 30-year amortization schedule. In connection with the Amended Note, in 2022, Zoned Arizona received gross proceeds of $4,500,000 and paid fees of $184,596.

 

Zoned Arizona may prepay the outstanding principal under the Swap Note, at any time, subject to the provisions of the Swap Note.

 

Also as previously disclosed, on July 11, 2022 and pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement, the Company executed a Guaranty (the “Guaranty”) in favor of the Bank, pursuant to which the Company agreed to guarantee all indebtedness of Zoned Arizona to the Bank arising under or in connection with the MAL or any of the loan documents. On December 7, 2022, the Company executed an Acknowledgement of Amendment and Reaffirmation of Guaranty (the “Reaffirmation”) in favor of the Bank. The Reaffirmation reaffirms the Guaranty and provides the Company’s consent to the First Amendment and Swap Note.

 

On December 7, 2022, Zoned Arizona and the Bank entered into an Interest Rate Swap Transaction Confirmation (the “Confirmation”). The Confirmation incorporates by reference the 2002 ISDA Master Agreement as published by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. as if the parties to the Confirmation executed such agreement in such form. The Confirmation provides the terms and conditions governing the interest rate swap transaction afforded to Zoned Arizona, including a fixed interest rate of 7.65%. The Company recorded the swap at fair value in the unaudited consolidated balance sheets with changes in fair value recorded contemporaneously in earnings. The Company has entered into an interest rate swap to mitigate variability in interest payments on its variable-rate debt.

If the Company defaults on payment, Mr. Abrams may at his option, extend all conversion rights, through and including the date the Company tenders or attempts to tender payment in full of all amounts due under the Abrams Debenture. Any amount of principal or interest, which is not paid when due shall bear interest at the rate of 12% per annum. Upon an Event of Default (as defined in the Abrams Debenture), Mr. Abrams may (i) declare the entire principal amount and all accrued and unpaid interest under the Abrams Debenture immediately due and payable, and (ii) exercise any and all rights, powers and remedies available to Mr. Abrams at law or in equity or other appropriate proceeding, whether for the specific performance of any covenant or agreement contained in the Abrams Debenture and proceed to enforce the payment thereof or any other legal or equitable right of Mr. Abrams.

NOTE 9 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

(A) Preferred Stock

 

On December 13, 2013, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized and approved the creation of a new class of Preferred Stock consisting of 5,000,000 shares authorized, $.001 par value. The preferred stock is not convertible into any other class or series of stock. The holders of the preferred stock are entitled to fifty (50) votes for each share held. Voting rights are not subject to adjustment for splits that increase or decrease the common shares outstanding. Upon liquidation, the holders of the shares will be entitled to receive $1.00 per share plus redemption provision before assets distributed to other shareholders. The holders of the shares are entitled to dividends equal to common share dividends. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were 2,000,000 shares of preferred stock outstanding. Once any shares of Preferred Stock are outstanding, at least 51% of the total number of shares of Preferred Stock outstanding must approve the following transactions:

 

  a. Alter or change the rights, preferences or privileges of the Preferred Stock.
     
  b. Create any new class of stock having preferences over the Preferred Stock.
     
  c. Repurchase any of our common stock.
     
  d. Merge or consolidate with any other company, except our wholly owned subsidiaries.
     
  e. Sell, convey or otherwise dispose of, or create or incur any mortgage, lien, or charge or encumbrance or security interest in or pledge of, or sell and leaseback, in all or substantially all our property or business.
     
  f. Incur, assume or guarantee any indebtedness maturing more than 18 months after the date on which it is incurred, assumed or guaranteed by us, except for operating leases and obligations assumed as part of the purchase price of property.

 

(B) Equity incentive plans

 

On August 9, 2016, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the 2016 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2016 Plan”) and reserved 10,000,000 shares of common stock for issuance thereunder. The 2016 Plan was approved by shareholders on November 21, 2016. The 2016 Plan’s purpose is to encourage ownership in the Company by employees, officers, directors and consultants whose long-term service the Company considers essential to its continued progress and, thereby, encourage recipients to act in the stockholders’ interest and share in the Company’s success. The 2016 Plan authorizes the grant of awards in the form of options intended to qualify as incentive stock options under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, options that do not qualify (non-statutory stock options) and grants of restricted shares of common stock. Restricted shares granted pursuant to the 2016 Plan are amortized to expense over the vesting period. Options vest and expire over a period not to exceed seven years. If any share of common stock underlying a stock option that has been granted ceases to be subject to a stock option, or if any shares of common stock that are subject to any other stock-based award granted are forfeited or terminate, such shares shall again be available for distribution in connection with future grants and awards under the 2016 Plan. As of June 30, 2023, 1,102,500 stock option awards are outstanding and 472,500 options are exercisable under the 2016 Plan. As of December 31, 2022, 1,102,500 stock option awards are outstanding and 367,500 options are exercisable under the 2016 Plan. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, 8,897,500 and 8,897,500 shares, respectively, were available for future issuance.

 

The Company also continues to maintain its 2014 Equity Compensation Plan (the “2014 Plan”), pursuant to which 1,250,000 previously awarded stock options are outstanding. The 2014 Plan has been superseded by the 2016 Plan. Accordingly, no additional shares subject to the existing 2014 Plan will be issued and the 1,250,000 shares issuable upon exercise of stock options will be issued pursuant to the 2014 Plan, if exercised. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, options to purchase 1,250,000 shares of common stock are outstanding and 1,200,000 options are exercisable pursuant to the 2014 Plan.

(E) Stock options

 

In January 2022, the Company’s Board of Directors unanimously agreed to stop receiving any direct stock issuance or cash payments related to their compensation for services on the Company’s Board of Directors.

Accordingly, on January 21, 2022, the Company granted stock options to purchase an aggregate of 525,000 of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.78 per share to members of the Company’s board of directors pursuant to the 2016 Plan.

The fair value of this option grant was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted-average assumptions: dividend yield of 0%; expected volatility of 108.7%; risk-free interest rate of 1.54%; and an estimated holding period of 6 years.

The fair value of this option grant was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted-average assumptions: dividend yield of 0%; expected volatility of 112.3%; risk-free interest rate of 1.75%; and an estimated holding period of 10 years. In connection with these options, the Company valued these stock options at a fair value of $55,334 and will record stock-based compensation expense over the vesting period.

 

On April 1, 2022, the Company granted a stock option to purchase 52,500 of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share to an employee of the Company pursuant to the 2016 Plan.

The option vests as to (i) 2,500 of such shares on April 1, 2022; and (ii) as to 5,000 of such shares on October 1, 2022 and each year thereafter through October 1, 2031. The fair value of this option grant was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted-average assumptions: dividend yield of 0%; expected volatility of 110.76%; risk-free interest rate of 2.39%; and an estimated holding period of 10 years. The Company valued this stock option at a fair value of $37,660 and will record stock-based compensation expense over the vesting period.

 

On July 1, 2022, the Company granted a stock option to purchase 125,000 of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share to the Company’s Chief Legal Officer and Chief Compliance Officer pursuant to the 2016 Plan. The grant date of the stock option was July 1, 2022 and the option expires on July 1, 2032. The option vests as to (i) 25,000 of such shares on July 1, 2022; and (ii) as to 10,000 of such shares on July 1, 2023 and each year thereafter through July 1, 2032. The fair value of this option grant was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted-average assumptions: dividend yield of 0%; expected volatility of 109.83%; risk-free interest rate of 2.88%; and an estimated holding period of 10 years. The Company valued this stock option at a fair value of $82,420 and will record stock-based compensation expense over the vesting period.

 

For the three months ended June 30 2023 and 2022, in connection with the accretion of stock-based option expense, the Company recorded stock option expense over the vesting period of $37,185 and $81,096, respectively.

As of June 30, 2023, there were 2,352,500 options outstanding and 1,672,500 options vested and exercisable. As of June 30, 2023, there was $195,720 of unvested stock-based compensation expense to be recognized through September 2031. The aggregate intrinsic value on June 30, 2023 was $12,900 and was calculated based on the difference between the quoted share price on June 30, 2023 of $0.80 and the exercise price of the underlying options.

Employment and Related Golden Parachute Agreement

 

On May 23, 2018, the Company and Mr. McLaren, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors, agreed to replace Mr. McLaren’s 2014 employment agreement with a new employment agreement dated May 23, 2018 (the “2018 Employment Agreement”). Pursuant to the terms of the 2018 Employment Agreement, the Company agreed to continue to pay Mr. McLaren his then-current base annual salary of $215,000, and to award Mr. McLaren with an annual and/or quarterly bonus payable in either cash and/or equity of no less than 2% of the Company’s net income for the associated period.

 

The 2018 Employment Agreement has a term of 10 years. The term and Mr. McLaren’s employment will terminate (a “Termination”) in any of the following circumstances:

 

  (i) immediately, if Mr. McLaren dies;
     
  (ii) immediately, if Mr. McLaren receives benefits under the long-term disability insurance coverage then provided by the Company or, if no such insurance is in effect, upon Mr. McLaren’s disability;
     
  (iii) on the expiration date, as the same may be extended by the parties by written amendment to the 2018 Employment Agreement prior to the occasion thereof;
     
  (iv) at the option of the Company for Cause (as defined in the 2018 Employment Agreement) upon the Company’s provision of written notice to Mr. McLaren of the basis for such Termination;
     
  (v) at the option of the Company, without Cause;
     
  (vi) by Mr. McLaren at any time with Good Reason (as defined in the 2018 Employment Agreement), upon 30 days’ prior written notice to the Company delivered not later than within 90 days of the existence of the condition therefor; or
     
  (vii) by Mr. McLaren at any time without Good Reason, upon not less than three months’ prior written notice to the Company.

 

In the event of a Termination for any reason or for no reason whatsoever, or upon the expiration date of the 2018 Employment Agreement, whichever comes first, all rights and obligations under the 2018 Employment Agreement shall cease (i) as to the Company, except for the Company’s obligations for the payment of applicable severance benefits thereunder, and for indemnification thereunder, and (ii) as to Mr. McLaren, except for his obligation under the restrictive covenants in the 2018 Employment Agreement.

The Company and Mr. McLaren also entered into a Golden Parachute Agreement (the “Golden Parachute Agreement”) on May 23, 2018. No benefits shall be payable under the Golden Parachute Agreement unless there shall have been a change in control of the Company, as set forth below. For purposes of the Golden Parachute Agreement, amongst other terms in the Golden Parachute Agreement, a “change in control of the Company” shall mean a change of control of a nature that would be required to be reported in response to Item 6 of Schedule 14A of Regulation 14A promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

 

For purposes of the Golden Parachute Agreement, “Cause” means termination upon (a) the willful and continued failure to substantially perform duties with the Company after a written demand for substantial performance is delivered by the Board, which demand specifically identifies the manner in which the Board believes that duties have not substantially been performed, or (b) the willful engaging in conduct, which is demonstrably and materially injurious to the Company, monetarily or otherwise.

 

For purposes of the Golden Parachute Agreement, “Good Reason” means, without express written consent, the occurrence after a change in control of the Company of any of the following circumstances unless, such circumstances are fully corrected prior to the date of Termination specified in the notice of Termination:

 

  (a) a material diminution in Mr. McLaren’s authority, duties or responsibility from those in effect immediately prior to the change in control of the Company;
     
  (b) a material diminution in Mr. McLaren’s base compensation;
     
  (c) a material change in the geographic location at which Mr. McLaren performs his duties;
     
  (d) a material diminution in the authority, duties, or responsibilities of the supervisor to whom Mr. McLaren is required to report, including a requirement that Mr. McLaren report to a corporate officer or employee instead of reporting directly to the Board;

 

  (e) a material diminution in the budget over which Mr. McLaren retains authority;

 

  (f) a material breach under any agreement with the Company to continue in effect any bonus to which Mr. McLaren was entitled, or any compensation plan in which Mr. McLaren participates immediately prior to the change in control of the Company which is material to Mr. McLaren’s total compensation;
     
  (g) a material breach under any agreement with the Company to provide Mr. McLaren benefits substantially similar to those enjoyed by him under any of the Company’s life insurance, medical, health and accident, or disability plans in which he was participating at the time of the change in control of the Company, the failure to continue to provide Mr. McLaren with a Company automobile or allowance in lieu of it, if Mr. McLaren was provided with such an automobile or allowance in lieu of it at the time of the change of control of the Company, the taking of any action by the Company which would directly or indirectly materially reduce any of such benefits or deprive him of any material fringe benefit enjoyed by him at the time of the change in control of the Company, or the failure by the Company to provide him with the number of paid vacation days to which he is entitled on the basis of years of service with the Company in accordance with the Company’s normal vacation policy in effect at the time of the change in control of the Company;

 

Following a change in control of the Company, upon termination of Mr. McLaren’s employment or during a period of disability, Mr. McLaren will be entitled to the following benefits:

 

  (i) During any period that he fails to perform his full-time duties with the Company as a result of incapacity due to physical or mental illness, Mr. McLaren will continue to receive his base salary at the rate in effect at the commencement of any such period, together with all amounts payable to him under any compensation plan of the Company during such period, until the Golden Parachute Agreement is terminated.
     
  (ii) If Mr. McLaren’s employment is terminated by the Company for Cause or by Mr. McLaren other than for Good Reason, disability, death or retirement, the Company will pay Mr. McLaren his full base salary through the date of Termination at the rate in effect at the time notice of Termination is given, plus all other amounts and benefits to which he is entitled under any compensation plan of the Company at the time such payments are due.

 

  (iii) If employment by the Company shall be terminated (a) by the Company other than for Cause, death or disability or (b) by Mr. McLaren for Good Reason, Mr. McLaren will be entitled to benefits provided below:

 

  a. The Company will pay Mr. McLaren his full base salary through the date of Termination at the rate in effect at the time notice of Termination is given, plus all other amounts and benefits to which he is entitled under any compensation plan of the Company.

  b. In lieu of any further salary payments to Mr. McLaren for periods subsequent to the date of Termination, the Company will pay as severance pay to Mr. McLaren a lump sum severance payment (together with the payments provided in clause I(c) and (d) below) equal to five times the sum of his annual base salary in effect immediately prior to the occurrence of the circumstance giving rise to the notice of Termination given in respect of them.
     

  c. The Company will pay to Mr. McLaren any deferred compensation allocated or credited to him or his account as of the date of Termination.

 

  d. In lieu of shares of common stock of the Company issuable upon exercise of outstanding options, if any, granted to Mr. McLaren under the Company’s stock option plans (which options shall be cancelled upon the making of the payment referred to below), Mr. McLaren will receive an amount in cash equal to the product of (i) the excess of the closing price of the Company’s common stock as reported on or nearest the date of Termination (or, if not so reported, on the basis of the average of the lowest asked and highest bid prices on or nearest the date of Termination), over the per share exercise price of each option held by Mr. McLaren (whether or not then fully exercisable) plus the amount of any applicable cash appreciation rights, times (ii) the number of the Company’s common stock covered by each such option.
     
  e. The Company will also pay to Mr. McLaren all legal fees and expenses incurred by him as a result of such Termination.

 

On July 23, 2022, the Board of Directors of the Company appointed Berekk Blackwell, the Company’s Chief Operating Officer, as President of the Company, effective immediately. On July 26, 2022, the Company entered into an employment agreement, effective July 1, 2022, with Mr. Blackwell (the “Blackwell Employment Agreement”). Pursuant to the terms of the Blackwell Employment Agreement, the Company agreed to pay Mr. Blackwell a base annual salary of $150,000 for his services as President and Chief Operating Officer. The Company may also award Mr. Blackwell discretionary cash and/or equity bonuses. The Blackwell Employment Agreement has a term of one year, expiring on July 1, 2023. During the initial term, neither party may terminate the Blackwell Employment Agreement except for Cause (as defined in the Blackwell Employment Agreement).

For the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company contributed $14,725 and $8,527 to the Plan, respectively.

 

Master Agreement

 

On November 29, 2022, ZP Woodward, the Woodward Assignor, Ammar Kattoula and Thomas Nafso entered into a Master Agreement for the rights for the Purchase and Sale (the “Master Agreement”) of the Woodward Property.

NOTE 11 – SEGMENT REPORTING

 

Beginning on January 1, 2022, the Company changed its method of internal reporting and determined that the Company operates in two reportable segments which consists of (1) the operations, leasing and management of its leased commercial properties, herein known as the “Property Investment Portfolio” segment, and (2) advisory and brokerage services related to commercial properties, herein known as the “Real Estate Services” segment. The Company has determined that these reportable segments were strategic business units that offer different products. Currently, these reportable segments are being managed separately based on the fundamental differences in their operations.

NOTE 12 – OPERATING LEASE RIGHT-OF-USE (“ROU”) ASSETS AND OPERATING LEASE LIABILITY

 

On March 15, 2022, the Company entered to an Assumption of Lease and Consent Agreement with a landlord, whereby the landlord consented to the assignment of an office lease, as amended, from the original tenant to the Company. The lease term shall begin on March 15, 2022 and expire on November 30, 2024, provided the Company has the option to extend the lease for an additional five years. The monthly base rent shall be $2,932 per month through November 30, 2021, $3,005 from December 1, 2022 through November 30, 2023, and $3,078 from December 1, 2023 through November 30, 2024.

 

In adopting ASC Topic 842, Leases (Topic 842) on January 1, 2019, the Company had elected the ‘package of practical expedients’, which permitted it not to reassess under the new standard its prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs (see Note 2). In addition, the Company elected not to apply ASC Topic 842 to arrangements with lease terms of 12 month or less. Since the terms of the Company’s operating lease for its office space prior to March 15, 2022 was 12 months or less on the date of adoption, pursuant to ASC 842, the Company determined that the lease met the definition of a short-term lease, and the Company did not recognize the right-of use asset and lease liability arising from this lease. Upon signing of the Assumption of Lease and Consent Agreement on March 15, 2022, the Company analyzed the new lease and determined it is required to record a lease liability and a right of use asset on its consolidated balance sheet, at fair value.

NOTE 13 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

  

Sublease of Kingman Property

On August 2, 2023, the Company entered into a Sublease Agreement (the “Sublease”) with CJK and a subtenant in connection with the Company’s Kingman property. Pursuant to the Sublease, the Sublease shall be effective on August 2, 2023 and end on the one year anniversary, or (ii) the last day of the Term of the Master Lease (whether due to expiration or termination thereof by the Company, whichever is earlier (the “Sublease Expiration Date”), such period being referred to herein as the “Sublease Term”, unless terminated earlier pursuant to the terms of this Sublease or otherwise by consent of the Company, CJK and Subtenant. The subtenant shall have two options to extend the Sublease Term by one year periods each (each a “Sublease Term Extension” and collectively the “Sublease Term Extensions”), which shall be exercisable by Subtenant no later than 90 days prior to the expiration of the Sublease Term, as may be extended.

Pursuant to the Kingman Lease (See Note 3), if pursuant to any assignment or sublease, CJK receives rent, either initially or over the Term of the assignment or sublease, in excess of the Rent called for hereunder, or in the case of this sublease of a portion of the Premises in excess of such Rent fairly allocable to such portion, after appropriate adjustments to assure that all other payments called for hereunder are appropriately taken into account, CJK shall pay to the Company, as Additional Rent hereunder, 50% of the excess of each such payment of rent received by CJK. Accordingly, the Company shall receive additional rent of $3,500 per month during the term of the sublease.

 

Additionally, the subtenant will pay a security deposit of $22,000 per the terms of the sublease. The Company and CJK have agreed to split the Security Deposit at 68% (the Company receives $15,000 of the $22,000 Security Deposit).

Item 2: Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information and Factors That May Affect Future Results

 

This quarterly report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements regarding our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects. The Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) encourages companies to disclose forward-looking information so that investors can better understand a company’s future prospects and make informed investment decisions. This quarterly report on Form 10-Q and other written and oral statements that we make from time to time contain such forward-looking statements that set out anticipated results based on management’s plans and assumptions regarding future events or performance. We have tried, wherever possible, to identify such statements by using words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “will” and similar expressions in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance. In particular, these include statements relating to future actions, future performance or results of current and anticipated sales efforts, expenses, the outcome of contingencies, such as legal proceedings, and financial results. Factors that could cause our actual results of operations and financial condition to differ materially are set forth in the “Risk Factors” section of our annual report on Form 10-K as filed on March 28, 2023, as the same may be updated from time to time.

 

We caution that these factors could cause our actual results of operations and financial condition to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements we make and that investors should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of such factors. Further, we cannot assess the impact of each such factor on our results of operations or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our unaudited consolidated financial statements and the related notes that appear elsewhere in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q.

 

Overview

 

Zoned Properties, Inc. (“Zoned Properties” or the “Company”) is a real estate development firm for emerging and highly regulated industries, including legalized cannabis. The Company is redefining the approach to commercial real estate investment through its integrated growth services. Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, Zoned Properties has developed a full spectrum of integrated growth services to support its real estate development model; the Company’s Property Technology, Advisory Services, Commercial Brokerage, and Investment Portfolio divisions collectively cross-pollinate within the model to drive project value associated with complex real estate projects. With national experience and a team of experts devoted to the emerging cannabis industry, Zoned Properties is addressing the specific needs of a modern market in highly regulated industries. Zoned Properties is an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau, the U.S. Green Building Council, and the Forbes Business Council. The Company does not grow, harvest, sell or distribute cannabis or any substances regulated under United States law such as the Controlled Substance Act of 1970, as amended (the “CSA”).

 

We operate our business in two reportable segments consisting of (i) the operations, leasing and management of its leased commercial properties (the “Property Investment Portfolio” segment), and (ii) technology, advisory and brokerage services related to commercial properties (the “Real Estate Services” segment). We are in the process of developing and expanding multiple business divisions, including a property technology division, a property advisory division, a commercial brokerage division, and a property investment portfolio division focused on acquisitions to expand our property holdings. Each of these operating divisions is an important element of the overall business development strategy for long-term growth. We believe in the value of building relationships with clients and local communities to position the Company for long-term portfolio and revenue growth backed by sophisticated, safe, and sustainable assets and clients.

 

The core of our business involves identifying and developing commercial properties that intend to operate within highly regulated industries, including the regulated and legalized cannabis industry. Within highly regulated industries, local municipalities typically develop strict regulations, including zoning and permitting requirements related to commercial real estate, that dictate the specific locations and parameters under which regulated properties can operate. These regulations often include complex permitting processes and can include non-standard codes governing each location; for example, restricting a regulated property or facility from operating within a certain distance of any parks, schools, churches, or residential districts, or restricting a regulated property from operating outside a defined set of hours of operation. When an organization can collaborate with local representatives, a proactive set of rules and regulations can be established and followed to meet the needs of both the regulated operators and the local community.

 

30

 

 

The Company currently maintains a portfolio of properties that we own, develop, and lease. We lease land and/or building space at all five of the properties in our portfolio. All of the properties are leased to licensed and regulated cannabis tenants and are located in areas with established zoning and permitting procedures. Three of the leased properties are zoned and permitted as licensed and regulated cannabis dispensaries, and two of the leased properties are zoned and permitted as licensed and regulated cannabis cultivation and processing facilities. Each regulated property may undergo a non-standard development process. Various development requirements in this process may include initial property identification, zoning authorization, and permitting guidance in order to qualify a commercial property for subsequent architectural design, utility installation, construction and development, property management, facilities management systems, and security system installation.

 

The Company is in the business of pursuing real estate acquisitions and investments that may include various contractual agreements to secure a property, such as an Option Agreement or a Purchase and Sale Agreement. These agreements often include the requirement to fund escrow deposits. Escrow deposits include cash deposits made by the Company for the future acquisition of properties or for the option to acquire a property. In most cases, upon closing of the acquisition of a property, the escrow deposit will be applied to the purchase price. In some cases, the Company may discontinue pursuit of an acquisition of a property and therefore may terminate an existing agreement, which can cause forfeiture of escrow deposits if those deposits are non-refundable. During the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company forfeited escrow deposits of $15,000 which is reflected as a loss on forfeited escrow deposit on the accompanying consolidated statement of operations.

 

The Company is in pursuit of property acquisitions that can be characterized as consumer-facing, retail dispensary properties that are positioned to be leased to retail dispensary cannabis tenants under net leasing structures. As of June 30. 2023, the Company had agreements in place to acquire properties located in Arizona, Alabama, Mississippi, and Missouri. The Company utilizes terms within the agreements to acquire properties that often include material contingencies to complete the acquisition, such as local real estate approvals or the ability to secure an operating tenant at the property. As of June 30, 2023, the Company has deposited escrow funds for the future acquisition of properties or for the option to acquire properties of $140,548.

The Company focused heavily on the growth of a diversified revenue stream in 2022 and is moving to take advantage of new opportunities in 2023 and beyond. We intend to accomplish this by prospecting new real estate services across the country for private, public, and municipal clients. We believe that strategic real estate services are likely to emerge as the growth engine for Zoned Properties.

 

Pursuant to lease agreements with a Significant Tenant, from the period from May 31, 2020 through September 30, 2022, a Significant Tenant invested a combined total greater than $8,000,000 of improvements in and to the properties in Chino Valley. The increase in the rentable area of the leased premises resulted in an increase in all amounts calculated based on the same, including, without limitation, base rent.

Comparison of Results of Operations for the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2023 and 2022

 

Revenues

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, revenues by reportable business segments were as follows:

Total revenues  $772,617   $498,652   $1,460,641   $1,437,353 

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2023, total revenues amounted to $772,617, including rental revenues of $609,591, as compared to $498,652, including rental revenues of $450,314, for the three months ended June 30, 2022, an overall increase of $273,965, or 54.9%. This increase was attributable to an increase in brokerage revenues of $78,188, or 2,755.0%, attributable to an increase in commissions earned on real estate listings, an increase in rental revenues of $159,277, or 35.4%, and an increase in advisory revenues of $36,500, or 80.2%.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2023, total revenues amounted to $1,460,641, including rental revenues of $1,220,065, as compared to $1,437,353, including rental revenues of $840,411, for the six months ended June 30, 2022, an overall increase of $23,288, or 1.6%. This increase was attributable to an increase in rental revenues of $379,654, or 45.2%, and an increase in advisory revenues of $73,250, or 88.2%. offset by a decrease in brokerage revenues of $429,616, or 83.6%, attributable to a decrease in commissions earned on real estate listings.

 

The increase in property investment portfolio revenues was due to an amendment to the Company’s leased property in Chino Valley, Arizona in March 2022, and the signing of a new lease with a new tenant at our recently acquired property located in Pleasant Ridge, Michigan which began on December 1, 2022. All of the Company’s real estate properties are leased under absolute-net or triple-net leases with the Significant Tenants.

Operating expenses

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2023, operating expenses amounted to $707,812 as compared to $507,856 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $199,956, or 39.4%. For the six months ended June 30, 2023, operating expenses amounted to $1,404,222 as compared to $1,437,039 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, a decrease of $32,817, or 2.3%.

Total  $707,812   $507,856   $1,404,222   $1,437,039 

 

  For the three months ended June 30, 2023, compensation and benefits expense increased by $99,183, or 37.5%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. The increase was attributable to an increase in compensation and benefits of $143,094 related to the addition of multiple new full-time and part-time team members, and an increase in health insurance expense, offset by a decrease in stock-based compensation of $43,911. For the six months ended June 30, 2023, compensation and benefits expense increased by $172,548, or 32.1%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2022. The increase was attributable to an increase in compensation and benefits of $290,113 related to the addition of multiple new full-time and part-time team members, and an increase in health insurance expense, offset by a decrease in stock-based compensation of $117,565. The decrease in stock-based compensation was from a decrease in accretion of stock option expense. During the second quarter of 2022, we began to hire additional staff related to the diversification of our real estate services for the expansion of both advisory services and brokerage services.
     
  For the three months ended June 30, 2023, professional fees decreased by $6,508, or 9.8%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. This decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in accounting fees of $3,188, a decrease in legal fees of $3,240, and a decrease in public relations fees of $24,188, offset by an increase in consulting fees of $24,119. For the six months ended June 30, 2023, professional fees increased by $19,835, or 10.9%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2022. This increase was primarily attributable to an increase in accounting fees of $10,414, an increase in legal fees of $8,307, and an increase in consulting fees of $24,500, offset by a decrease in public relations fees of $23,375.
     
  For the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, we recorded brokerage fees amounting to $50,571 and $1,419, respectively, representing an increase of $49,152, or 3,464.0%. For the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, we recorded brokerage fees amounting to $50,571 and $357,966, respectively, representing a decrease of $307,395, or 85.9%. Brokerage fees occur as the result of various percentage-based commission splits we pay to our licensed brokerage team members who participate in various real estate listing transactions.

 

  General and administrative expenses consist of expenses such as rent expense, insurance expense, insurance expense, travel expenses, office expenses, telephone and internet expenses, advertising and marketing expenses, and other general operating expenses. For the three months ended June 30, 2023, general and administrative expenses increased by $32,337, or 48.0%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. For the six months ended June 30, 2023, general and administrative expenses increased by $46,152, or 34.9%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2022. These increases were primarily attributable to an increase in operating activities related to attendance at various industry-related conferences and an increase in technology services.

 

  For the three months ended June 30, 2023, depreciation expense increased by $15,497, or 17.9%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. For the six months ended June 30, 2023, depreciation expense increased by $15,762, or 8.8%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2022. This increase was related to an increase depreciation of rental properties associated with the purchase of the Pleasant Ridge, MI property, offset by a decrease in amortization of intangible assets which were fully amortized.
     
  For the three months ended June 30, 2023 real estate taxes increased by $9,983, or 45.9%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. For the six months ended June 30, 2023 real estate taxes increased by $19,969, or 45.9%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2022. This increase was attributable to an increase in assessed real taxes associated with improvements made on our Chino Valley property and the purchase of the Pleasant Ridge, MI property.

Income (Loss) from operations

 

As a result of the factors described above, for the three months ended June 30, 2023, income from operations amounted to $64,805 as compared to a loss from operations of $(9,204) for the three months ended June 30, 2022, a change of $74,009, or 804.1%. For the six months ended June 30, 2023, income from operations amounted to $56,419 as compared to income from operations of $314 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $56,105, or 17,867.8%.

 

Other (expenses) income, net

 

Other (expenses) income, net primarily includes interest expense incurred on debt with third parties and also includes other income (expenses). For the three months ended June 30, 2023, total other expenses, net amounted to $22,646 as compared to total other expenses, net of $29,859, respectively, representing a decrease of $7,213, or 24.2%. This decrease was attributable to an increase in interest expense of $126,990 primarily related to an increase in notes payable, and a decrease in interest income of $3,242, and an increase in loss from unconsolidated joint ventures of $2,540, offset by the recording of a gain in fair value from an interest rate swap of $139,985 in connection with our bank note payable.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2023, total other expenses, net amounted to $323,908 as compared to total other expenses, net of $65,073, respectively, representing an increase of $258,835, or 397.8%. This increase was attributable to an increase in interest expense of $250,890 primarily related to an increase in notes payable, and a decrease in interest income of $6,447. Additionally, during the six months ended June 30, 2023, we recorded a loss on forfeited escrow deposit of $15,000. These increases were offset by the recording of a gain in fair value from an interest rate swap of $9,692 in connection with our bank note payable, and a decrease in loss from unconsolidated joint ventures of $3,810.

 

Net Income (Loss)

 

As a result of the foregoing, for the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, net income (loss) amounted to $42,159, or $0.00 per common share (basic and diluted), and $(39,063), or $(0.00) per common share (basic and diluted), respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, net loss amounted to $267,489, or $(0.02) per common share (basic and diluted), and $64,759, or $(0.01) per common share (basic and diluted), respectively.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Liquidity is the ability of an enterprise to generate adequate amounts of cash to meet its needs for cash requirements. We had cash of $3,275,775 and $4,335,840 as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively.

 

Our primary uses of cash have been for compensation and benefits, fees paid to third parties for professional services, real estate taxes, general and administrative expenses, and the development of rental properties and other lines of business. All funds received have been expended in the furtherance of growing the business. We receive funds from the collection of rental income, advisory fees and brokerage fees. The following trends are reasonably likely to result in changes in our liquidity over the near to long term:

 

  An increase in working capital requirements to finance our current business,
     
  Addition of administrative and sales personnel as the business grows,
     
  The cost of being a public company,
     
  An increase in investments in joint ventures and other projects, and
     
  An increase in investments in rental property.

 

We may need to raise additional funds, particularly if we are unable to continue to generate positive cash flows from our operations. We estimate that based on current plans and assumptions, that our available cash will be sufficient to satisfy our cash requirements under our present operating expectations for the next 12 months from the date of this quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Other than revenue received from the lease of our rental properties, from advisory fees, and from brokerage revenues, and from a bank note, we presently have no other significant alternative source of working capital.

 

We have used these funds to fund our operating expenses, pay our obligations, acquire and develop rental properties, invest in joint ventures and notes receivable, and to grow our company. We may need to raise significant additional capital or debt financing to acquire new properties, to develop existing properties, to assure we have sufficient working capital for our ongoing operations and debt obligations, and to invest in new joint venture and other projects.

East West Bank Swap and Amended Note

 

On July 11, 2022, Zoned Arizona entered into a Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), dated as of July 11, 2022, by and between Zoned Arizona and East West Bank (the “Bank”). Pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement, subject to and upon the satisfaction of the terms and conditions of the Loan Agreement, Zoned Arizona could request advances under a multiple access loan (“MAL”) during the MAL. On July 11, 2022, in connection with the Loan Agreement, Zoned Arizona paid loan and other fees of $176,472, and in connection with the First Amendment to the Loan Agreement discussed below, paid additional fees of $8,124. These loan and other fees aggregating $184,596 are reflected as a debt discount and are being amortized ratably and charged to interest expense over the term of the related debt.

 

The proceeds of each advance under the MAL may be used by Zoned Arizona to refinance the real property at 410 S. Madison Drive, Tempe, AZ 85251 (the “Property”) or to conduct certain acts related to the acquisition, improvement and maintenance of real property. On termination of the MAL, all unpaid principal, unpaid and accrued interest, and all other amounts due under the MAL will be immediately due and payable.

 

The Loan Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants customary for a transaction of this type. Among other things, the Loan Agreement provides as follows: (a) upon the occurrence of an event of default, the outstanding principal balance of the MAL will not at any time exceed 65% of the Property’s most recent appraised value; (b) upon the occurrence of an event of default, Zoned Arizona will maintain a minimum Non-Cannabis Debt Service Coverage Ratio (as hereinafter defined) of 1.40 to 1.00; (c) Zoned Arizona will at all times maintain a minimum debt service coverage ratio of 1.50 to 1.0; and (d) Zoned Arizona and the Company, collectively, will maintain at all times, liquid assets of at least the sum of all tenant securities deposits under leases, plus $350,000 in operating reserves.

 

All advances under the MAL bear interest at a variable rate equal to the greater of (a) the prime rate plus 2%, or (b) a floor rate equal to the sum of the prime rate as of July 11, 2022 plus 2.25%. From July 11, 2022 to July 11, 2023, Zoned Arizona agreed to make interest payments on the outstanding principal balance of the MAL. From and after July 11, 2023 and continuing until July 11, 2028 (the “Maturity Date”), Zoned Arizona will pay principal together with interest on the MAL in 60 monthly installments based on the interest rate set forth in the Note and a principal amortization schedule of 25 years from July 11, 2023 (or if Zoned Arizona makes the Early Amortization Election, from the date such election is made).

 

Zoned Arizona may prepay the outstanding principal under the Note, at any time, subject to the provisions of the Note. If Zoned Arizona prepays all, but not less than all, of the outstanding principal balance of the MAL at any time until July 11, 2023, then Zoned Arizona will also pay a premium equal to 1% of the amount prepaid.

 

On December 7, 2022, Zoned Arizona and the Bank entered into a First Amendment to Loan Agreement (the “First Amendment”). Pursuant to the terms of the First Amendment, Zoned Arizona has elected to make its Early Amortization Election (defined in the First Amendment and Loan Agreement), which election requires Zoned Arizona to commence paying principal and interest on the MAL as set forth in the Swap Note (defined below). Except as provided in the First Amendment, the terms of the Loan Agreement remain in full force and effect. Pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement and First Amendment, on December 7, 2022, Zoned Arizona issued an Amended and Restated Promissory Note (the “Swap Note”) to the Bank. The Swap Note has an original principal amount of $4,500,000, a 50% loan-to-value as determined by the bank-ordered appraisal completed on the Tempe Property. The Swap Note requires Zoned Arizona to pay monthly principal and interest payments to the Bank at an interest rate equal to the prime rate plus 0.75%. The Swap Note matures 10 years after its effective date and payments are calculated based on a 30-year amortization schedule. In connection with the Swap Note, Zoned Arizona received net proceeds of $4,315,404 which is net of fees of $184,596.

 

Zoned Arizona may prepay the outstanding principal under the Swap Note, at any time, subject to the provisions of the Swap Note.

 

Also as previously disclosed, on July 11, 2022 and pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement, the Company executed a Guaranty (the “Guaranty”) in favor of the Bank, pursuant to which the Company agreed to guarantee all indebtedness of Zoned Arizona to the Bank arising under or in connection with the MAL or any of the loan documents. On December 7, 2022, the Company executed an Acknowledgement of Amendment and Reaffirmation of Guaranty (the “Reaffirmation”) in favor of the Bank. The Reaffirmation reaffirms the Guaranty and provides the Company’s consent to the First Amendment and Swap Note.

 

35

 

 

On December 7, 2022, Zoned Arizona and the Bank entered into an Interest Rate Swap Transaction Confirmation (the “Confirmation”). The Confirmation incorporates by reference the 2002 ISDA Master Agreement as published by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. as if the parties to the Confirmation executed such agreement in such form. The Confirmation provides the terms and conditions governing the interest rate swap transaction afforded to Zoned Arizona, including a fixed interest rate of 7.65%. The Company recorded the swap at fair value in the unaudited consolidated balance sheets with changes in fair value recorded contemporaneously in earnings. The Company has entered into an interest rate swap to mitigate variability in interest payments on its variable-rate debt.

 

On June 30, 2023, principal and interest due on the East West Bank Swap Note amounted to $4,467,766 and $15,213, respectively. On December 31, 2022, principal and interest due on the East West Bank Swap Note amounted to $4,485,808 and $28,324, respectively.

 

23616 Land Contract Note Payable

 

On December 5, 2022, in connection with the acquisition of the Woodward Property located in Pleasant Ridge, Michigan, the Company entered into a land contract note in the amount of $1,425,000 (the “23616 Land Contract Note Payable”). The 23616 Land Contract Note Payable bears interest at 9% per annum and is due in full as follows:

 

1)60 monthly payments of principal and interest of $12,821 beginning on January 1, 2023, and

 

2)A balloon payment of $1,274,117 including the remaining principal and interest on or before December 1, 2028.

 

On June 30, 2023, principal and interest due on the 23616 Land Contract Note Payable amounted to $1,409,810 and $0, respectively. On December 31, 2022, principal and interest due on the 23616 Land Contract Note Payable amounted to $1,425,000 and $10,687, respectively.

 

23634 Land Contract Note Payable

 

On February 24, 2023, in connection with the 23634 Land Contract dated February 24, 2023 (see Note 4), the Company entered into a land contract note payable of $430,000 (the “23634 Land Contract Note Payable”). The 23634 Land Contract Note Payable accrues interest at the rate of 7% and is payable in 48 monthly installments of $3,865, beginning April 1, 2023, until the purchase price and interest are fully paid, provided that such purchase price and all interest will be fully paid on or before March 31, 2027. On June 30, 2023, principal and interest due on the 23634 Land Contract Note Payable amounted to $424,832 and $0, respectively.

 

Our future operations are dependent on our ability to manage our current cash balance, on the collection of rental and real estate services revenues and the attainment of new advisory and brokerage clients. Our real estate properties are leased to Significant Tenants under triple-net leases for which terms vary. We monitor the credit of these tenants to stay abreast of any material changes in credit quality. We monitor tenant credit by (1) reviewing financial statements and related metrics and information that are publicly available or that are provided to us upon request, and (2) monitoring the timeliness of rent collections. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, we had an asset concentration related to our Significant Tenant leases. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, these Significant Tenants represented approximately 69.1% and 59.8% of total assets, respectively. If our Significant Tenants are prohibited from operating due to federal or state regulations or due to COVID-19, or cannot pay their rent, we may not have enough working capital to support our operations and we would have to seek out new tenants at rental rates per square less than our current rate per square foot.

 

We may secure additional financing to acquire and develop additional and existing properties. Financing transactions may include the issuance of equity or debt securities, obtaining credit facilities, or other financing mechanisms. Even if we are able to raise the funds required, it is possible that we could incur unexpected costs and expenses or experience unexpected cash requirements that would force us to seek alternative financing. Furthermore, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our common stock. The inability to obtain additional capital may restrict our ability to grow our business operations.

Net cash flow provided by operating activities was $143,784 for the six months ended June 30, 2023, as compared to net cash flow provided by operating activities of $270,968 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, representing a decrease of $127,184.

 

  Net cash flow provided by operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2023 primarily reflected a net loss of $267,489 adjusted for the add-back of non-cash items consisting of depreciation of $199,630,  amortization of debt discount of $9,229, accretion of stock-based stock option expense of $80,447, a loss on forfeited escrow deposit of $15,000, a loss from unconsolidated joint ventures of $8,370, and a gain from the changes in fair value from an interest rate swap of $9,692, offset by changes in operating assets and liabilities primarily consisting of an increase in deferred rent of $124,013 attributable to rent abatement on our new tenant lease at our Woodward Properties, a decrease in prepaid expenses and other assets of $32,248, an increase in contract liabilities of $148,394, and an increase in security deposits payable of $56,100 attributable to the collection of additional security deposit on our Woodward Properties.

  

  Net cash flow provided by operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2022 primarily reflected a net loss of $64,759 adjusted for the add-back of non-cash items consisting of depreciation of $174,418, amortization expense of $9,450, accretion of stock-based stock option expense of $198,012, and a loss from unconsolidated joint ventures of $10,920, offset by changes in operating assets and liabilities primarily consisting of an increase in accounts receivable of $266,203 attributable to an increase in brokerage commissions receivable, a decrease in lease incentive receivable of $9,174, an increase in prepaid expenses of $22,656, an increase in accounts payable of $203,976 attributable to an increase in brokerage fees payable, an increase in accrued expenses of $9,115, an increase in deferred revenues of $7,500, and a decrease in deferred rent receivable of $4,494.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2023, net cash flow used in investing activities amounted to $1,165,450 as compared to net cash used in investing activities of $551,664, an increase of $613,786. During the six months ended June 30, 2023, net cash used in investing activities was attributable to the purchase of rental property of $998,821 primarily in connection with the acquisition of property in Pleasant Ridge, Michigan, an increase in capitalized permit costs of $11,081, and an increase in escrow deposits of $155,548 in connection with escrow deposits made on other potential acquisitions of rental properties. During the six months ended June 30, 2022, net cash used in investing activities was attributable to an increase in lease incentive receivables related to the disbursement of $500,000 to our Significant Tenant to be used for leasehold improvements, the purchase of property and equipment of $3,764, and cash used to invest equity securities of $50,000. This use of cash in investing activities were offset by proceeds from the sale of property and equipment of $2,100.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2023, net cash used in financing activities amounted to $38,399 and consisted of the repayment of notes payable. During the six months ended June 30, 2022, net cash used in financing activities was attributable to the repayment of notes payable – related party of $20,000.

 

Contractual Obligations and Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

Contractual Obligations

 

We have certain fixed contractual obligations and commitments that include future estimated payments. Changes in our business needs, cancellation provisions, changing interest rates, and other factors may result in actual payments differing from the estimates. We cannot provide certainty regarding the timing and amounts of payments. We have presented below a summary of the most significant assumptions used in our determination of amounts presented in the tables, in order to assist in the review of this information within the context of our consolidated financial position, results of operations, and cash flows.

 

The following tables summarize our contractual obligations as of June 30, 2023 (dollars in thousands), and the effect these obligations are expected to have on our liquidity and cash flows in future periods.

Off-balance Sheet Arrangements

 

Other than discussed below, we have not entered into any other financial guarantees or other commitments to guarantee the payment obligations of any third parties. We have not entered into any derivative contracts that are indexed to our shares and classified as shareholders’ equity. Furthermore, we do not have any retained or contingent interest in assets transferred to an unconsolidated entity that serves as credit, liquidity or market risk support to such entity. We do not have any variable interest in any unconsolidated entity that provides financing, liquidity, market risk or credit support to us or engages in leasing, hedging or research and development services with us. Our off-balance sheet arrangement includes the notional amount of our interest rate swaps which we use to hedge a portion of our exposure to interest rate fluctuations. Currently, our interest rate swap fixes the variable rate interest on our bank swap note payable. We intend to fund our interest rate swap payments utilizing cash flows from operations. As of June 30, 2023, the notional amount of our interest rate swaps was $4,481,959. In interest rate swaps, the notional amount is the specified value upon which interest rate payments will be exchanged. The notional amount in interest rate swaps is used to come up with the amount of interest due.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our unaudited consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these unaudited consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We continually evaluate our estimates, including those related to income taxes, and the valuation of equity transactions. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Any future changes to these estimates and assumptions could cause a material change to our reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We believe the following critical accounting policies affect our more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of the unaudited financial statements.

 

Fair value of financial instruments

 

The carrying amounts reported in the unaudited consolidated balance sheets for cash, accounts receivable, prepaid expenses and other assets, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and other payables approximate their fair market value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.

 

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement (“ASC 820”), requires companies to determine fair value based on the price that would be received to sell the asset or paid to transfer the liability to a market participant. ASC 820 emphasizes that fair value is a market-based measurement, not an entity-specific measurement.

 

The guidance requires that assets and liabilities carried at fair value be classified and disclosed in one of the following categories:

 

  Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
     
  Level 2: Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.
     
  Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data.

 

Other than the interest rate swap, the Company did not identify any other assets or liabilities that are required to be presented on the balance sheets at fair value, on a recurring basis, in accordance with ASC Topic 820.

Interest rate swap

 

In connection with a bank loan executed in 2022, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement to manage interest rate risk related to debt that accrues interest at variable rates. The Company accounts for its interest rate swap agreement in accordance with the guidance related to derivatives and hedging activities. The Company is exposed to market risk from changes in interest rates. The Company agrees to exchange, at specified intervals, the difference between fixed and variable interest amounts calculated by reference to an agreed upon notional principal amount. Interest payments receivable and payable under the terms of the interest rate swap agreement are accrued over the period to which the payment relates and the net difference is treated as an adjustment of interest expense related to the underlying liability. Because the variable interest rates used to calculate payments under the terms of the swap agreement are calculated using different benchmarks than those included in the Company’s variable rate debt agreement, the swap agreement is not considered an effective cash flow hedge.

 

Accordingly, changes in the underlying market value of the remaining swap payments are recognized into income as an increase or decrease to other income (expense) each reporting period. In accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, the Company believes values provided by its counterparty represent the fair value of its swap agreement. The Company believes that the quality of the counterparty to its swap agreement mitigates the counterparty credit risk.

 

The estimated fair value of the interest rate swap agreement is reflected as a derivative liability on the accompanying balance sheet with changes in the fair value reflected in interest expense in the accompanying statements of operations. The Company uses derivative financial instruments only to manage interest rate risks and not as investment vehicles.

Rental properties

 

Rental properties are carried at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Betterments, major renovations and certain costs directly related to the improvement of rental properties are capitalized. Maintenance and repair expenses are charged to expense as incurred. Depreciation is recognized on a straight-line basis over estimated useful lives of the assets, which range from 5 to 39 years. Tenant improvements are amortized on a straight-line basis over the lives of the related leases, which approximate the useful lives of the assets.

 

Upon the acquisition of real estate, we assess the fair value of acquired assets (including land, buildings and improvements, identified intangibles, such as acquired above-market leases and acquired in-place leases) and acquired liabilities (such as acquired below-market leases) and allocate the purchase price based on these assessments. The Company assesses fair value based on estimated cash flow projections that utilize appropriate discount and capitalization rates and available market information. Estimates of future cash flows are based on a number of factors including historical operating results, known trends, and market/economic conditions.

 

Our properties are individually reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. An impairment exists when the carrying amount of an asset exceeds the aggregate projected future cash flows over the anticipated holding period on an undiscounted basis. An impairment loss is measured based on the excess of the property’s carrying amount over its estimated fair value. Impairment analyses are based on our current plans, intended holding periods and available market information at the time the analyses are prepared. If our estimates of the projected future cash flows, anticipated holding periods, or market conditions change, our evaluation of impairment losses may be different and such differences could be material to our consolidated financial statements. The evaluation of anticipated cash flows is subjective and is based, in part, on assumptions regarding future occupancy, rental rates and capital requirements that could differ materially from actual results.

 

We have capitalized land, which is not subject to depreciation.

Lease accounting

 

The FASB’s Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)” sets out the principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases for both parties to a contract (i.e., lessees and lessors). The 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 recognize 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 today. The new standard requires lessors to account for leases using an approach that is substantially equivalent to existing guidance for sales-type leases, direct financing leases and operating leases.

 

For leases entered into on or after the effective date, where the Company is the lessor, at the inception of the contract, the Company assesses whether the contract is a sales-type, direct financing or operating lease by reviewing the terms of the lease and determining if the lessee obtains control of the underlying asset implicitly or explicitly. If a change to a pre-existing lease occurs, the Company evaluates if the modification results in a separate new lease or a modified lease. A new lease results when a modification provides additional right of use. The new lease or modified lease is then reassessed to determine its classification based on the modified terms. As disclosed in Note 3, on January 24, 2022 and effective on March 1, 2022, the Chino Valley lease was amended and the monthly base rent was increased to $87,581 due to additional space of 30,000 square feet being leased to the lessee, increasing the premises to a total of 97,312 square feet of operational space. In connection with this lease amendment, the Company paid $500,000 to the tenant as a tenant improvement allowance or lease incentive for investment into the premises, which was capitalized as a lease incentive receivable and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the remaining lease term as a reduction to the lease income. The increase in monthly rent was commensurate with the additional space being leased; therefore, this modification qualifies as a separate contract under ASC 842 which does not require lease classification reassessment.

 

The Company records revenues from rental properties for its operating leases where it is the lessor on a straight-line basis. Any revenue on the straight-line basis exceeding the monthly payment amount required on the operating lease is reflected as deferred rent. Effective May 31, 2020, the Company amended its leases for which it is the lessor on its Chino Valley, Tempe, Kingman and Green Valley properties. The amendments resulted in an abatement of rent for the months of June and July 2020. Additionally, in connection with an operating lease on the Company’s Michigan property acquired in December 2022, the Company abated certain lease payments for the period from December 2022 to March 2023. These rent abatements resulted in aggregate deferred rent as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 of $328,092 and $204,079, respectively (see Note 3). Additionally, if the lease provides for tenant improvements, the Company determines whether the tenant improvements, for accounting purposes, are owned by the tenant or the Company. When the Company is the owner of the tenant improvements, the tenant is not considered to have taken physical possession or have control of the physical use of the leased asset until the tenant improvements are substantially completed. When the tenant is the owner of the tenant improvements, any tenant improvement allowance (including amounts that can be taken in the form of cash or a credit against the tenant’s rent) that is funded is treated as a lease incentive receivable and amortized as a reduction of revenue over the lease term.

 

For contracts entered into on or after the effective date, where the Company is the lessee, at the inception of a contract, the Company assesses whether the contract is, or contains, a lease. The Company’s assessment is based on: (1) whether the contract involves the use of a distinct identified asset, (2) whether we obtain the right to substantially all the economic benefit from the use of the asset throughout the period, and (3) whether we have the right to direct the use of the asset. The Company allocates the consideration in the contract to each lease component based on its relative stand-alone price to determine the lease payments. For leases where the Company is a lessee, primarily for the Company’s administrative office lease, the Company analyzed if it would be required to record a lease liability and a right of use asset on its consolidated balance sheets at fair value upon adoption of ASU 2016-02.

 

Operating lease right of use asset represents the right to use the leased asset for the lease term and operating lease liability is recognized based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the lease term at commencement date. As most leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company used its incremental borrowing rate of 6% based on the information available at the adoption date or execution of a lease agreement in determining the present value of future payments. Lease expense for minimum lease payments is amortized on a straight-line basis over the lease term and is included in general and administrative expenses in the unaudited consolidated statements of operations.

Investment in unconsolidated joint ventures

 

We have equity investments in various privately held entities. We account for these investments either under the equity method or cost method of accounting depending on our ownership interest and level of influence. Investments accounted for under the equity method are recorded based upon the amount of our investment and adjusted each period for our share of the investee’s income or loss. Investments are reviewed for changes in circumstance or the occurrence of events that suggest an other than temporary event where our investment may not be recoverable. We evaluate our investments in these entities for consolidation. We consider our percentage interest in the joint venture, evaluation of control and whether a variable interest entity exists when determining whether or not the investment qualifies for consolidation or if it should be accounted for as an unconsolidated investment under either the equity method of accounting. If an investment qualifies for the equity method of accounting, our investment is recorded initially at cost, and subsequently adjusted for equity in net income (loss) and cash contributions and distributions. The net income or loss of an unconsolidated investment is allocated to its investors in accordance with the provisions of the operating agreement of the entity. The allocation provisions in these agreements may differ from the ownership interest held by each investor. Differences, if any, between the carrying amount of our investment in the respective joint venture and our share of the underlying equity of such unconsolidated entity are amortized over the respective lives of the underlying assets as applicable. These items are reported as a single line item in the statements of operations as income or loss from investments in unconsolidated affiliated entities.

 

Revenue recognition

 

We follow ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”). This standard establishes a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most of the existing revenue recognition guidance. ASC 606 requires an entity to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised 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 and also requires certain additional disclosures.

 

Rental income includes base rents that each tenant pays in accordance with the terms of its respective lease and is reported on a straight-line basis over the non-cancellable term of the lease, which includes the effects of rent abatements under the leases. The Company commences rental revenue recognition when the tenant takes possession of the leased space or controls the physical use of the leased space and the leased space is substantially ready for its intended use.

 

Currently, the Company’s leases provide for payments with fixed monthly base rents over the term of the leases. The leases also require the tenant to remit estimated monthly payments to the Company for property taxes. These payments are recorded as rental income and the related property tax expense reflected separately on the statements of operations.

 

Revenues from advisory services is recognized when the Company performs services pursuant to its agreements with clients and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Brokerage revenues primarily consists of real estate sales commissions and are recognized upon the successful completion of all required services have been performed which is when escrow closes. In accordance with the guidelines established for Reporting Revenue Gross as a Principal versus Net as an Agent in the ASC Topic 606, the Company records commission revenues and expenses on a gross basis. Of the criteria listed in ASC Topic 606, the Company is the primary obligor in the transaction, does not have inventory risk, performs all or part of the service, has credit risk, and has wide latitude in establishing the price of services rendered and discretion in selection of agents and determination of service specifications. Brokerage revenue that are payable upon payment of rent or other events beyond the Company’s control are recognized upon the occurrence of such events.

 

Stock-based compensation

 

Stock-based compensation is accounted for based on the requirements of ASC 718 – “Compensation –Stock Compensation”, which requires recognition in the financial statements of the cost of employee, director, and non-employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee, director, or non-employee is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee, director, and non-employee services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award. The Company has elected to recognize forfeitures as they occur as permitted under ASU 2016-09 Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, “Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments” (“ASU 2016-13”). ASU 2016-13 requires financial assets measured at amortized cost to be presented at the net amount expected to be collected. The measurement of expected credit losses is based on relevant information about past events, including historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the collectability of the reported amounts. An entity must use judgment in determining the relevant information and estimation methods that are appropriate in its circumstances. ASU 2016-13 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years, and a modified retrospective approach is required, with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. In November of 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, which delayed the implementation of ASU 2016-13 to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022 for smaller reporting companies which applies to the Company. The adoption of ASU 2016-13 had financial impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures,” as that term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e), promulgated by the SEC pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Disclosure controls and procedures include controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our company’s reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our management, with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, evaluated our company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that as of June 30, 2023, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.

 

The ineffectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures was due to the following material weaknesses which we identified in our internal control over financial reporting: (1) the lack of multiples levels of management review on complex accounting and financial reporting issues, (2) we had not implemented adequate system and manual controls, and (3) a lack of adequate segregation of duties and necessary corporate accounting resources in our financial reporting process and accounting function as a result of our limited financial resources to support hiring of personnel and implementation of accounting systems. Until such time as we expand our staff to include additional accounting personnel and hire a full time chief financial officer, it is likely we will continue to report material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Changes in Internal Control

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended June 30, 2023 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
