On September 3, 2004, the Company changed its name to StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”). On November 15, 2010, the Company was re-domiciled under the laws of the State of Wyoming. The Company’s operations are based in Edison, New Jersey.

 

The Company is a software development and services company that offers a suite of integrated computer network security products using proprietary technology. The Company’s ongoing strategy is developing and marketing its suite of network security products to the corporate, financial, healthcare, legal, government, technology, insurance, e-commerce and consumer sectors.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. As reflected in the accompanying financial statements, for the three months ended March 31, 2017, the Company incurred a loss from operations of $1,096,259 and used cash in operating activities of $475,043, and at March 31, 2017, the Company had a stockholders’ deficit of $8,987,547. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year of the date that the financial statements are issued. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

At March 31, 2017, the Company had cash on hand in the amount of $362,587. Management estimates that the current funds on hand will be sufficient to continue operations through the next three months. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to continue to implement its business plan. Currently, management is attempting to increase revenues by redirecting its sales focus from direct sales to domestic and international sales channels, primarily selling through a channel of distributors, value added resellers, strategic partners and original equipment manufacturers. While the Company believes in the viability of its strategy to increase revenues, there can be no assurances to that effect. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to continually increase its customer base and realize increased revenues from recently signed contracts. No assurance can be given that any future financing, if needed, will be available or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to the Company. Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, if needed, it may contain undue restrictions on its operations, in the case of debt financing, or cause substantial dilution for its stock holders, in the case of equity financing.

 

Basis of Presentation - Unaudited Interim Financial Information

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods have been included. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for the full fiscal year ending December 31, 2017. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2016 and notes thereto contained in the Annual Report on Form 10-K of the Company as filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on April 14, 2017.

 

Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates include those related to accounting for potential liabilities and the assumptions made in valuing stock instruments issued for services, derivative liabilities, and valuation allowance for deferred tax assets. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Stock Compensation

 

The Company periodically issues stock options and warrants to employees and non-employees in non-capital raising transactions for services and for financing costs. The Company accounts for stock option and warrant grants issued and vesting to employees based on the authoritative guidance provided by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) whereas the value of the award is measured on the date of grant and recognized as compensation expense on the straight-line basis over the vesting period. The Company accounts for stock option and warrant grants issued and vesting to non-employees in accordance with the authoritative guidance of the FASB whereas the value of the stock compensation is based upon the measurement date as determined at either a) the date at which a performance commitment is reached, or b) at the date at which the necessary performance to earn the equity instruments is complete. Options granted to non-employees are revalued each reporting period to determine the amount to be recorded as an expense in the respective period. As the options vest, they are valued on each vesting date and an adjustment is recorded for the difference between the value already recorded and the then current value on the date of vesting. In certain circumstances where there are no future performance requirements by the non-employee, option grants are immediately vested and the total stock-based compensation charge is recorded in the period of the measurement date.

 

The fair value of the Company’s stock option and warrant grants are estimated using the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model, which uses certain assumptions related to risk-free interest rates, expected volatility, expected life of the stock options or warrants, and future dividends. Compensation expense is recorded based upon the value derived from the Black-Scholes-Merton Option Pricing model, and based on actual experience. The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes-Merton Option Pricing model could materially affect compensation expense recorded in future periods.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

 

To determine the number of authorized but unissued shares available to satisfy outstanding convertible securities, the Company uses a sequencing method to prioritize its convertible securities as prescribed by ASC 815-40-35. At each reporting date, the Company reviews its convertible securities to determine that their classification is appropriate.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company follows the authoritative guidance issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) for fair value measurements. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. A fair value hierarchy was established, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value into three broad levels as follows:

 

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

Level 2—Inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly.

Level 3—Unobservable inputs based on the Company's assumptions.

 

The Company is required to use of observable market data if such data is available without undue cost and effort.

 

As of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the Company’s balance sheets included the fair value of derivative liabilities of $471,093 and $262,185, respectively, which were based on Level 2 measurements. 

 

The recorded amounts for accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses, convertible notes, and notes payables approximate their fair value due to their short term nature.

Income (loss) per Share

 

Basic income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted income (loss) per share reflects the potential dilution, using the treasury stock method that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the income (loss) of the Company. In computing diluted income (loss) per share, the treasury stock method assumes that outstanding options, warrants, and convertible preferred stock are exercised and the proceeds are used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. Options, warrants, and convertible preferred stock may have a dilutive effect under the treasury stock method only when the average market price of the common stock during the period exceeds the exercise price of the options and warrants.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2017, the dilutive impact of stock options exercisable into 196,000,001 shares of common stock, convertible Series B Preferred Stock that can convert into 7,964,162 shares of common stock, respectively, and notes payable that can convert into 25 shares of common stock, respectively, have been excluded because their impact on the loss per share is anti-dilutive. For the three months ended March 31, 2016, the calculations of diluted earnings per share included stock options and warrants exercisable into 340,024 shares of common stock calculated under the treasury method, and convertible Series B Preferred stock that can convert into 175,338 shares of common stock.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. ASU 2014-09 is a comprehensive revenue recognition standard that will supersede nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under current U.S. GAAP and replace it with a principle based approach for determining revenue recognition. Under ASU 2014-09, revenue is recognized when a customer obtains control of promised goods or services and is recognized in an amount that reflects the consideration which the entity expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. In addition, the standard requires disclosure of the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. The FASB has recently issued ASU 2016-08, ASU 2016-10, ASU 2016-11, ASU 2016-12, ASU 2016-20, and ASU 2017-05, all of which clarify certain implementation guidance within ASU 2014-09. ASU 2014-09 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted only in annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods therein. The standard can be adopted either retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented (full retrospective method), or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the guidance recognized at the date of initial application (the cumulative catch-up transition method). The Company is currently in the process of analyzing the information necessary to determine the impact of adopting this new guidance on its financial position, results of operations, and cash flows. The Company will adopt the provisions of this statement in the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases. This update will require the recognition of a right-of-use asset and a corresponding lease liability, initially measured at the present value of the lease payments, for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. For operating leases, the asset and liability will be expensed over the lease term on a straight-line basis, with all cash flows included in the operating section of the statement of cash flows. For finance leases, interest on the lease liability will be recognized separately from the amortization of the right-of-use asset in the statement of comprehensive income and the repayment of the principal portion of the lease liability will be classified as a financing activity while the interest component will be included in the operating section of the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-02 is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted. Upon adoption, leases will be recognized and measured at the beginning of the earliest period presented using a modified retrospective approach. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of ASU 2016-02 on its financial statements and related disclosures.

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB, including its Emerging Issues Task Force, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Securities and Exchange Commission did not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company's present or future consolidated financial statements.

Note 6 - Derivative Financial Instruments

 

Under authoritative guidance issued by the FASB, instruments which do not have fixed settlement provisions, are deemed to be derivative instruments. The conversion feature of certain of the Company’s convertible notes payable (see Note 2) did not have fixed settlement provisions because the ultimate determination of shares to be issued could exceed current available authorized shares.

 

In accordance with the FASB authoritative guidance, the conversion feature of the financial instruments was separated from the host contract and recognized as a derivative instrument. The conversion feature of the financial instruments has been characterized as a derivative liability and was re-measured at the end of every reporting period with the change in value reported in the statement of operations.

 

At December 31, 2016, the balance of the derivative liabilities was $262,185. During the three months ended March 31, 2017, the Company recorded a change in fair value of derivatives of $208,908. At March 31, 2017, the balance of the derivative liabilities was $471,093.

 

The derivative liability was valued at the following dates using a probability weighted Black-Scholes-Merton model with the following assumptions:

The risk-free interest rate was based on rates established by the Federal Reserve Bank. The expected volatility is based on the historical volatility of the Company’s stock. The expected life of the conversion feature of the notes was based on the remaining terms of the related notes. The expected dividend yield was based on the fact that the Company has not customarily paid dividends to its common stockholders in the past and does not expect to pay dividends to its common stockholders in the future.

Note 7 - Stockholders’ Deficit

 

Series A Preferred Stock

 

In 2011, the Company issued three shares of non-convertible Series A Preferred Stock valued at $329,000 per share, or $987,000 in aggregate to three members of the management team. The Series A Preferred Stock are convertible into four times the total number of common shares plus the total number of shares of Series B preferred stock issued and outstanding at the time of conversion, and have voting rights equal to eighty percent of the total issued and outstanding shares of the Company's common stock. This effectively provided the management team, upon retention of their Series A Preferred Stock, voting control on matters presented to the shareholders of the Company. The shareholders of the Series A Preferred Stock have each irrevocably waived their conversion rights relating to the Series A Preferred Stock issued.

 

Series B Preferred Stock

 

The Series B Preferred Stock has preferential liquidation rights in the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, such liquidation rights to be paid from the assets of the Company not delegated to parties with greater priority at $1.00 per share or, in the event an aggregate subscription by a single subscriber of the Series B Preferred Stock is greater than $100,000,000, $0.997 per share. The Series B Preferred Stock shall be convertible to a number of shares of common stock equal to the price of the Series B Preferred Stock divided by the par value of the Series B Preferred Stock. The option to convert the shares of Series B Preferred Stock may not be exercised until three months following the issuance of the Series B Preferred Stock to the recipient shareholder. The Series B Preferred Stock shall have ten votes on matters presented to the shareholders of the Company for one share of Series B Preferred Stock held. The initial price of the Series B Preferred Stock shall be $2.50, (subject to adjustment by the Company’s Board of Directors) until such time, if ever, the Series B Preferred Stock are listed on a secondary and/or public exchange.

 

In January 2017, the Company sold subscriptions to two individuals for the purchase of 53,334 shares of its Series B Preferred Stock at $1.50 per share, or an aggregate of $80,000. The shares of Series B Preferred Stock are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a 25% discount to current market value, as defined, with a minimum conversion price set by the Company's Board of Directors of $0.001 per share. The Series B Preferred Stock can be converted at any time into shares of common stock after twelve months from acceptance by the Company of the subscription agreements, but only once every 30 days. For the three months ended March 31, 2017, the Company recorded a beneficial conversion feature expense of $17,778 relating to the issuance of the Series B Preferred Stock.

At March 31, 2017, the Company does not have an estimate if Cyber Safety will exercise its option to make the purchase. Cyber Safety will also resell the Company’s GuardedID® and MobileTrust® products, for which the Company will receive a royalty, while the Company retains an unlimited license to resell those products. Cyber Safety also licensed the Malware Suite until September 30, 2020 and agreed to pay the Company 15% to 20% of the net amount Cyber Safety receives from this product. Dering the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, the Company did not receive any royalty or license payments from Cyber Safety.

 

Legal Proceedings

 

On June 20, 2016, the Company initiated additional patent litigation against three major competitors in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, for infringement of United States Patent No. 8,484,698. This litigation is ongoing. On March 14, 2017, one of the parties initiated an inter partes review (IPR) (a procedure for challenging the validity of a United States patent before the United States Patent and Trademark Office) against the Company’s second Patent No. 8,484,698.

 

On March 14, 2017, the Company initiated additional patent litigation against two major competitors in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, for infringement of United States Patent Nos. 7,870,599, 8,484,698 and 8,713,701. This litigation is ongoing.

 

On March 14, 2017, the Company initiated additional patent litigation against two major competitors in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, for infringement of United States Patent Nos. 7,870,599, 8,484,698 and 8,713,701. This litigation is ongoing.

 

Due to Factor

 

In March 2007, the Company entered into a sale and subordination agreement with a factoring firm whereby the Company sold its rights to two invoices, from February 2007 and March 2007, totaling $470,200 to the factor. Upon signing the agreement and providing the required disclosures, the factor remitted $197,450 to the Company. By December 31, 2007, the two invoices were deemed uncollectible. In February 2008, the Company agreed to pay the factor a settlement of $75,000 in September 2008, unless both parties mutually agreed to extend the due date. In September 2008, the Company and the factor reached a verbal agreement to extend the due date to December 31, 2008. The Company is currently pursuing a further extension. As of March 31, 2017, and December 31, 2016 the balance due to the factor was $209,192 including interest.

Background

 

We are a software development and services company that offers a suite of integrated computer network security products using proprietary technology. Our ongoing strategy is developing and marketing our suite of network security products to the corporate, financial, healthcare, legal, government, technology, insurance, e-commerce and consumer sectors. We plan to continue to grow our business primarily through our globally expanding sales channel and internally generated sales, rather than by acquisitions. We have no subsidiaries and we conduct our operations from our corporate office in Edison, New Jersey.

 

We completed the development of our ProtectID® platform and our keyboard encryption and anti-keylogger product, GuardedID®, in 2006 and commenced deployment of our new mobile product, MobileTrust® into the mobile stores in 2015. All are currently being sold and distributed. ProtectID® patent titled "Multi-Channel Device Utilizing a Centralized Out-of-Band Authentication System" is protected by three patents. The keystroke encryption technology we developed and use in our GuardedID® product is protected by patents.

 

Our suite of products is targeted to the financial, e-commerce, corporate, government, healthcare, legal, insurance, technology and retail markets. We seek to locate customers in a variety of ways. These primarily include contracts with value added resellers and distributors (both inside the United States and internationally), direct sales calls initiated by our internal staff, exhibitions at security and technology trade shows, through the media, through consulting agreements, and through our agent relationships. Our sales generate revenue either as an Original Equipment Manufacturer (“OEM”) model, through a Hosting/License agreement, bundled with other company’s products or through direct purchase by distributors and resellers. We price our products for cloud consumer transactions based on the number of transactions in which our software products are utilized. We also price our products for business applications based on the number of users. These pricing models provide our company with one-time, monthly, quarterly and annual recurring revenues with volume discounts.

 

We are engaged in multiple production installations and pilot projects with various distributors, resellers and direct customers primarily in the United States. Our GuardedID® product is also being sold directly to consumers, primarily through the Internet as well as distributors, resellers, third party agents, affiliates and potential OEM agreements by bundling GuardedID® with their products (providing a value-add and competitive advantage to their own products and offerings).

 

We have incurred substantial losses since our inception. Our management believes that our products provide a cost-effective and technologically competitive solution to address the problems of network security and identity theft in general. Updated guidance for the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (“FFIEC”) regulations include the requirement for solutions that have Two-Factor Out-of-Band Authentication and products that stop keylogging malware, real time, which our management believes our proprietary products uniquely and directly address.

 

On August 24, 2015, we entered into an agreement with Cyber Safety, Inc., a New York corporation (“Cyber Safety”) for Cyber Safety to license, and retain an option to purchase, the patents and Intellectual Property related to our GuardedID® and MobileTrust® software. Cyber Safety has the option to buy our GuardedID® patent for $9,000,000 that expires on September 30, 2020. At March 31, 2017, we do not have an estimate if Cyber Safety will exercise its option to make the purchase. Cyber Safety will also resell our GuardedID® and MobileTrust® products, for which we will receive a royalty, while we retain an unlimited license to resell those products. Cyber Safety also licensed the Malware Suite until September 30, 2020 and agreed to pay us 15% to 20% of the net amount Cyber Safety receives from this product. During the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, we did not receive any royalty or license payments from Cyber Safety.

 

Our executive office is located at 1090 King Georges Post Road, Suite 603, Edison, NJ 08837. Our telephone number is (732) 661-9641. We have 8 employees. Our Company’s website is www.strikeforcetech.com (we are not including the information contained in our website as part of, nor should the information be relied upon or incorporated by reference into, this report on Form 10-Q).

Intellectual Property

 

We are working with two patent attorney firms to aggressively continue to enforce our patent rights, now that we have successfully settled our first major patent lawsuit with Phone Factor, and settled by Microsoft, in January 2016. Our patent attorneys filed our fourth and fifth “Out of Band” continuation patents. We currently have three patents granted to us for Out-of-Band ProtectID® (Patent Nos.: 7,870,599, 8,484,698 and 8,713,701). In March 2013, our patent attorneys submitted a new “Methods and Apparatus for securing user input in a mobile device” Patent, which is now patent pending. Our MobileTrust® product is the invention supporting the patent pending. In September 2014, we filed an International Patent for MobileTrust® (PCT/US20114/029905) which is pending.

 

In December 2016, we executed a retainer agreement with a second patent attorney to aggressively enforce our patent rights as “Out-of-Band Authentication” has become the standard for authenticating consumers in the financial market and for many Saas application users (e.g., SalesForce, Quickbooks, etc.). No assurances can be provided as to outcome of any enforcement action.

 

We are also working with two patent attorney firms to plan our strategy to aggressively enforce the patent rights relating to our granted Keystroke Encryption patents that help protect our GuardedID® and MobileTrust® products. We were granted three related keystroke encryption patents for which we received the most recent patent on March 3, 2015 (Patent Nos.: 8,566,608, 8,732,483 and 8,973,107). In February 2016, a channel partner exercised their option to purchase our GuardedID® patents, and MobileTrust® patents pending, and products, which requires them to pay us $9,000,000 for the patents by September 30, 2020, in addition to royalties on sales.

 

We have four trademarks that have been approved and registered: ProtectID®, GuardedID®, MobileTrust® and CryptoColor®. A portion of our software is licensed from third parties and the remainder is developed by our own team of developers while leveraging some external consultant expertise as necessitated. We rely upon confidentiality agreements signed by our employees, consultants and third parties to protect the intellectual property rights.

 

We license technology from third parties, including software that is integrated with internally developed software and used in our products to perform key functions. We anticipate that we will continue to license technology from third parties in the future. Although we are not substantially dependent on any individual licensed technology, some of the software that we license from third parties could be difficult for us to replace. The effective implementation of our products depends upon the successful operation of third-party licensed products in conjunction with our suite of products, and therefore any undetected errors in these licensed products could create delays in the implementation of our products, impair the functionality of our products, delay new product introductions, damage our reputation, and/or cause us to provide substitute products.

 

Results of Operations

 

FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2017 COMPARED TO THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2016

 

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2017 were $83,869 compared to $82,709 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, an increase of $1,160 or 1.4%. The increase in revenues was due to the increase in our software, services, maintenance, and support sales.

 

Revenues generated consisted of hardware and software sales and license, services, support and maintenance sales, revenue from sign on fees, and recurring transaction fees. Software, services, support, and maintenance sales for the three months ended March 31, 2017 were $83,337 compared to $81,899 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, an increase of $1,438. The increase in software, services, support and maintenance revenues was primarily due to the increase in the sales and support of our software and mobile products. Hardware sales for the three months ended March 31, 2017 were $532 compared to $810 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, a decrease of $278. The decrease in hardware revenues was due to the decrease in sales of our one-time-password token key-fobs.

 

Cost of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $2,626 compared to $906 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, an increase of $1,720, or 190%. The increase resulted from the increase in third party processing fees related to our revenues. Cost of revenues as a percentage of total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was 3.1% compared to 1.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2016. 

 

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $81,243 compared to $81,803 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, a decrease of $560, or 0.7%. The decrease in gross profit was due to the increase in our cost of revenues.

Table of contents

  

Research and development expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2017 were $125,031 compared to $114,975 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, an increase of $10,056, or 8.7%. The increase in research and development expenses was due to an overall increase in our salaries, and the testing of our mobile products, which required the purchase of peripherals for testing purposes. The salaries, benefits and overhead costs of personnel conducting research and development of our software products primarily comprise research and development expenses.

 

Compensation, professional fees, and selling, general and administrative (collectively, “SGA”) expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2017 were $1,052,471 compared to $518,249 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, an increase of $534,222 or 103%. The increase was due primarily to the expenses relating to vesting of options granted to employees in September 2016 and an increase in salaries and related payroll taxes resulting from salary increases implemented in January 2016. SG&A expenses consist primarily of salaries, benefits and overhead costs for executive and administrative personnel, insurance, fees for professional services, including consulting, legal, and accounting fees, plus travel costs and non-cash stock compensation expense for the issuance of stock options to employees and other general corporate expenses.

 

Other income (expense) for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was expense of ($299,350) as compared to income of $5,452,252 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, representing a decrease in other income of $5,751,602, or 106%. The decrease was primarily due to the net settlement of patent remediation litigation, which was settled in January 2016 and the extinguishment of derivatives relating to the payoff of convertible debt recorded in the first quarter of 2016.

 

Our net income (loss) for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was a net loss ($1,395,609) compared to a net income of $4,900,831 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, a decrease in net income of $6,296,440, or 129%. The decrease was primarily due to the net settlement of patent remediation litigation, which was settled in January 2016, the extinguishment of derivatives relating to the payoff of convertible debt recorded in the first quarter of 2016 and expenses relating to options granted to employees in September 2016.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our total current assets at March 31, 2017 were $554,260, which included cash of $362,587, as compared with $965,404 in total current assets at December 31, 2016, which included cash of $804,130. Additionally, we had a stockholders’ deficit in the amount of $8,987,547 at March 31, 2017 compared to a stockholders’ deficit of $8,439,490 at December 31, 2016. We have historically incurred recurring losses and have financed our operations through loans, principally from affiliated parties such as our directors, and from the proceeds of debt and equity financing.

 

We financed our operations during the three months ended March 31, 2017 primarily through the net settlement of patent remediation litigation which was settled in January 2016 and the sale of shares of Series B Preferred stock in January 2017. While management believes that there will be a substantial percentage of our sales generated from our patented GuardedID® and new mobile products and there are an increasing number of customers for our patented ProtectID® product, we will continue to have customer concentrations. Inherently, as time progresses and corporate exposure in the market continues to grow, with increasing marketing efforts, management believes, but cannot guarantee, we will continue to attain greater numbers of customers.

 

Going Concern

 

We have yet to establish any history of profitable operations. For the three months ended March 31, 2017, we incurred a loss from operations of $1,096,259 and used cash in operating activities of $475,043, and at March 31, 2017, we had a stockholders’ deficit of $8,987,547. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date the financial statements are issued. This going concern condition could materially limit our ability to raise additional funds through the issuance of new debt or equity securities, or otherwise, and future reports on our financial statements may also include an explanatory paragraph with respect to our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

At March 31, 2017, we had cash on hand in the amount of $362,587. Management estimates that the current funds on hand will be sufficient to continue operations through the next three months. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to raise additional funds and implement our business plan. Management is currently seeking additional funds, primarily through the issuance of debt and equity securities for cash to operate our business. Currently, management is attempting to increase revenues and improve gross margins by a revised sales strategy. We are redirecting our sales focus from direct sales to domestic and international sales channels, where we are primarily selling through Distributors, Value Added Resellers, Strategic Partners and Original Equipment Manufacturers. While we believe in the viability of our strategy to increase revenues and in our ability to raise additional funds, there can be no assurances to that effect. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to continually increase our customer base and realize increased revenues from recently signed contracts. No assurance can be given that any future financing will be available or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to us. Even if we are able to obtain additional financing, it may contain undue restrictions on our operations, in the case of debt financing or cause substantial dilution for our stock holders, in the case of equity financing.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, revenues, result of operations, liquidity or capital expenditures.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates include those related to accounting for potential liabilities and the assumptions made in valuing stock instruments issued for services and derivative liabilities. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Revenue Recognition Policy

 

We recognize revenue when it is realized or realizable and earned. We consider revenue realized or realizable and earned when all of the following criteria are met: (i) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (ii) the product has been shipped or the services have been rendered to the customer, (iii) the sales price is fixed or determinable, and (iv) collectability is reasonably assured. When we recognize revenue, no provisions are made for returns because, historically, there have been very few sales returns and adjustments that have impacted the ultimate collection of revenues.

 

Revenue from hardware sales is recognized when the product is shipped to the customer and there are either no unfulfilled obligations by us, or any obligations that will not affect the customer's final acceptance of the arrangement. All costs of these obligations are accrued when the corresponding revenue is recognized.

 

Revenue from time and service contracts is recognized as the services are provided. Revenue from delivered elements of one-time charge licensed software is recognized at the inception of the license term, and determined by the fair value of each delivered element. Revenue is deferred for undelivered elements. We recognize revenue from the sale of software licenses when the four criteria discussed above are met. If we determine that collection of a fee is not reasonably assured, we defer the fee and recognize revenue at the time collection becomes reasonably assured, which is generally upon receipt of cash. Revenue from monthly software licenses is recognized on a subscription basis.

 

We offer an Application Service Provider (ASP) hosted cloud service whereby customer usage transactions are invoiced monthly on a cost per transaction basis.

 

Stock Compensation

 

We periodically issue stock options and warrants to employees and non-employees in non-capital raising transactions for services and for financing costs. We account for stock option and warrant grants issued and vesting to employees based on the authoritative guidance provided by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) whereas the value of the award is measured on the date of grant and recognized as compensation expense on the straight-line basis over the vesting period. We account for stock option and warrant grants issued and vesting to non-employees in accordance with the authoritative guidance of the FASB whereas the value of the stock compensation is based upon the measurement date as determined at either a) the date at which a performance commitment is reached, or b) at the date at which the necessary performance to earn the equity instruments is complete. Options granted to non-employees are revalued each reporting period to determine the amount to be recorded as an expense in the respective period. As the options vest, they are valued on each vesting date and an adjustment is recorded for the difference between the value already recorded and the then current value on the date of vesting. In certain circumstances where there are no future performance requirements by the non-employee, option grants are immediately vested and the total stock-based compensation charge is recorded in the period of the measurement date.

 

The fair value of our stock option and warrant grants are estimated using the Black-Scholes-Merton Option Pricing model, which uses certain assumptions related to risk-free interest rates, expected volatility, expected life of the stock options or warrants, and future dividends. Compensation expense is recorded based upon the value derived from the Black-Scholes-Merton Option Pricing model, and based on actual experience. The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes-Merton Option Pricing model could materially affect compensation expense recorded in future periods.

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

We evaluate our financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

 

To determine the number of authorized but unissued shares available to satisfy outstanding convertible securities, we use a sequencing method to prioritize its convertible securities as prescribed by ASC 815-40-35. At each reporting date, we review our convertible securities to determine their classification is appropriate.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

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

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures.

 

Regulations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) require public companies to maintain “disclosure controls and procedures,” which are defined as controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by an issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the issuer's management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

We carried out an evaluation, with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and our Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of the effectiveness our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of March 31, 2017. Based upon that evaluation, our CEO and CFO concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are not effective at the reasonable assurance level due to the following material weaknesses:

 

1. We do not have written documentation of our internal control policies and procedures. Written documentation of key internal controls over financial reporting is a requirement of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act which is applicable to us as of and for the interim period ended March 31, 2017. Management evaluated the impact of our failure to have written documentation of our internal controls and procedures on our assessment of our disclosure controls and procedures and has concluded that the control deficiency that resulted represented a material weakness.

 

2. Our board of directors has no independent director or member with financial expertise which causes ineffective oversight of our external financial reporting and internal control over financial reporting.

 

3. We do not have sufficient segregation of duties within accounting functions, which is a basic internal control. Due to our size and nature, segregation of all conflicting duties may not always be possible and may not be economically feasible. However, to the extent possible, the initiation of transactions, the custody of assets and the recording of transactions should be performed by separate individuals. Management evaluated the impact of our failure to have segregation of duties on our assessment of our disclosure controls and procedures and has concluded that the control deficiency that resulted represented a material weakness.

 

To address these material weaknesses, management performed additional analyses and other procedures to ensure that the financial statements included herein fairly present, in all material respects, our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.

 

Remediation of Material Weaknesses

 

We intend to remediate the material weaknesses in our disclosure controls and procedures identified above by adding an independent director or member with financial expertise or hiring a full-time CFO with SEC reporting experience in the future when working capital permits and by working with our independent registered public accounting firm to refine our internal procedures.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, during our most recently completed fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

The Series B Preferred Stock can be converted at any time into shares of common stock after twelve months from our acceptance of the subscription agreements, but only once every 30 days.

All of the above offerings and sales, except the afore-mentioned shares issued pursuant to a conversion of convertible notes, were made in reliance upon the exemption from registration under Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933 and/or Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, based on the following: (a) the investors confirmed to us that they were “accredited investors,” as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933 and had such background, education and experience in financial and business matters as to be able to evaluate the merits and risks of an investment in the securities; (b) there was no public offering or general solicitation with respect to the offering; (c) the investors were provided with certain disclosure materials and all other information requested with respect to our company; (d) where applicable, the investors acknowledged that all securities being purchased were “restricted securities” for purposes of the Securities Act of 1933, and agreed to transfer such securities only in a transaction registered under the Securities Act of 1933 or exempt from registration under the Securities Act; and (e) where applicable, a legend was placed on the certificates representing each such security stating that it was restricted and could only be transferred if subsequent registered under the Securities Act of 1933 or transferred in a transaction exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933.

 

ITEM 3. DEFAULTS UPON SENIOR SECURITIES.

 

We have not made various principal and interest payments on many of our debt obligations. We continue to seek work-out arrangements and applicable refinancing with new or revised debt or equity instruments. See Notes 2 and 4 to the financial statements.

 

ITEM 4. MINE SAFETY DISCLOSURES

 

Not applicable.
