PART I


ITEM 1.  BUSINESS


HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT


Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. was incorporated in the state of Delaware in June 1992 as Nanotech Corporation.  In April 1998, Nanotech changed the company name to Micropoint, Inc and in July 1999 Micropoint changed its name to Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc.  Flexpoint was forced to seek bankruptcy protection on July 3, 2001, and filed a voluntary petition for reorganization pursuant to Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. On February 24, 2004, the bankruptcy court confirmed Flexpoint's Plan of Reorganization.   We used fresh-start reporting and all assets of Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. were restated to reflect their reorganization value, which approximated the fair value at the date of reorganization.


BUSINESS OVERVIEW  

Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. (“Flexpoint”, or “Company”), is principally engaged in designing, engineering and manufacturing bend sensor technology and products using its patented Bend Sensor ® technology, a flexible potentiometer technology.  We continue to make further improvements to our technologies, manufacturing and developing fully integrated devices and related products that we have been marketing and selling to a variety of companies in diverse industries. We are negotiating and signing agreements, purchase orders and contracts that have provided some revenues and have proven that our sensors are more durable, adaptable and cost effective than any other product currently on the market.  


The Company owns five patents, including patents on specific devices that use the Bend Sensor ® and we have exclusive rights through licensing agreements to other patents and devices.  We are continuing to develop and enhance our intellectual properties that will result in additional patents being filed. The Company currently manufactures, and has jointly developed, twenty-five products that are being sold and supplied to current customers and we continue to receive orders for custom prototype sensors as well as our standard sensors.  We are continuing to develop and enhance our intellectual properties that will result in additional patents being filed.


The Company conducted an annual shareholders’ meeting on December 28, 2018, seeking approval from the Company’s shareholders to:  

Amend Flexpoint’s Certificate of Incorporation to effect an increase of the authorized common stock from One Hundred Million (100,000,000) to Two Hundred Million (200,000,000);

Amend Flexpoint’s Certificate of Incorporation to effect a Reverse Split of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock by a ratio of 1-for-50; and

Elect two directors to our Board:  

John A. Sindt for a three-year term

Clark M. Mower for a two-year term.


Each of the proposals put forth to a vote by the shareholders was approved.  The Company intends to initiate the procedures to file a Certificate of Amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to increase the authorized shares of common stock and to complete a 1-for-50 reverse of the common stock pursuant to the regulations of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) when the Board of Directors deem it advisable.


During 2018 we have focused our marketing efforts on a number of larger domestic and international companies that have applications which have the potential to greatly increase the volume of sensors we are currently manufacturing.  As of the date of this report, the Company had at least sixteen global commercial partners covering a variety of different products.  In coordination with its partners, the Company introduced at least eight new products.  Management believes this growth in sales channels will allow the Company to grow at an increasingly accelerated rate over the next several quarters.  



4



Our sales and marketing efforts have been targeted toward the development of new relationships with clients while maintaining and strengthening relationships already developed with several Tier 1 (major) suppliers in the automotive industry.  We have built and shipped orders to a number of these companies to enable them to test the utilization of our sensors into their existing and developing product lines.  

The Company continues to develop relationships in a number of application fields.  We have a strategic relationship with HTK Safety to begin offering an integrated safety system utilizing the Bend Sensor ® technology and a collaborative working arrangement with 11 Health and Technologies Inc. to develop next generation products in the medical industry.  Flexpoint has also established relationships with several other medical IoT vendors.  These include companies like 11Health, Neofect, Gloreha and YouReHab; all with a focus on medical rehabilitation with a different approach.  Products from these companies range from gloves to prosthetics to virtual reality, all with the intention of improving medical health or medical rehab.  


In addition to the sale of our products and engineering and design services, we also may consider generating revenues through licensing our unique technology for field of use or territory. We will attempt to negotiate each license agreement to contain a provision for either first right of refusal to manufacture, or royalty provisions for specific products or applications. We have continued to concentrate our marketing efforts on sensors and electronics which we consider to be quick-to-market production orders, and on engineering services that have generated limited, but immediate, revenues that have provided cash flow and name recognition. We have also continued our marketing efforts in the automotive industry. Due to the size and the numerous regulations inherent in the automotive industry, it requires a significantly longer time to develop and acquire approvals for new technologies.  However, as there are high volumes associated within the automotive industry, we anticipate that this industry will potentially generate significant long-term revenue streams.

 

We continue to work with Tier 1 automotive suppliers on a variety of products that are in various stages of development and implementation. Both the medical and automotive industries have undergone significant changes over the past several years. This changing environment has created delays in the implementation of the automotive and medical devices and therefore, over the past several years, we have focused our limited resources and marketing efforts on sensors and products that, in the aggregate, will generate a smaller dollar volume than those anticipated from our medical or automotive devices, but have a quicker pathway to market and have generated needed limited, but immediate, cash flow while providing additional name and product recognition that we believe will provide long term benefits. Based upon the current interest in our sensors from both the automotive and medical industries, we anticipate that over the next twelve months, we will begin producing larger repeatable volumes of sensors and devices in these focus industries.


PRINCIPAL PRODUCTS  


Bend Sensor ® Technology


The Company owns the patent rights to our Bend Sensor ® technology. The Bend Sensor ® is a flexible potentiometer; the bend sensor product consists of a coated substrate, such as plastic, that changes electrical conductivity as it is bent in a consistent manner.  Electronic systems connect to this sensor and measure in detail the amount of bending or movement that occurs in a predictable manner.  Certain applications of the Bend Sensor ® potentiometer have been patented (See “Patents and Intellectual Property,” below).


A typical potentiometer functions through the means of metal contacts swiping or rubbing across a resistive element. Our Bend Sensor ® potentiometer is a single layer with no mechanical assembly which makes it more reliable and significantly smaller, lighter in weight and usually less expensive than mechanical potentiometers.  Management believes many sensor applications can be improved using our technology and that the use of our technology will result in new products and new sensor applications, including the USB Bend Sensor ® kit, which has found application in a wide range of products since its introduction in 2015.


We have developed the following applications and devices using the Bend Sensor ® technology and are currently marketing these items:

Wearables


In November 2009, the Bend Sensor ® technology was featured in a study by the University of Rome Tor Vergeta, using an interactive glove, and was recommended as a possible tool to assist doctors in neuroscience studies to determine a patient's level of monitor skill or post-surgical evaluation and therapy, or for assisting the disabled.  Due to the ability of the sensor to measure range of motion, the study also recommends using the Bend Sensor ® technology as a tool to design ergonomic devices. The University has continued its research and has identified additional medical applications of our sensors.


In the rapidly growing and emerging wearables space, Flexpoint has also recently received additional purchase orders from multiple glove manufacturers across various market sub-segments including medical, toys, gaming and virtual reality.  The “speed to market” commercialization plans of these companies are driving this increased order volume.  Flexpoint is aggressively going after this evolving market, and expects this pattern to continue and dramatically increase in 2019.  In aggregate, Bend Sensor ®  wearables order volumes are expected to number in the tens of thousands in 2019.  The wearables market segment is clearly one where our technology is easily adapted and truly illustrates our technological differentiation.  Flexpoint’s willingness and ability to customize sensors for these innovative companies and deliver them at a competitive price point allows us to deliver real value to our customers.


These ground-breaking glove systems, combined with unique, leading edge software applications, also adapt to a wide range of other applications, including health rehabilitation, unmanned systems control, smartphone interaction and professional training across multiple industries.  In addition to producing an array of Bend Sensors ® , the Company is under agreement to supply integrated assemblies comprised of multiple sensor types and associated electronics.


In the VR/AR marketspace, orders of increasing size and frequency were received during the fourth quarter of 2018 from Manus VR and Virtual Motion Labs as they strive to fulfill production orders. Flexpoint also received orders from other global VR/AR customers during the quarter.


Medical Devices


Disposable Colonoscope


We have partnered with Haemoband Surgical Ltd. and have satisfactorily completed initial testing for their disposable colonoscope device, which uses our Bend Sensor ® technology to monitor the device's position while the procedure is conducted on the patient. Testing to date has demonstrated the ability of Flexpoint's sensor to graphically display the shape of the colonoscope and to accurately detect any looping of the scope. With more accurate readings on the position of the device, doctors can minimize complications that can arise from the colonoscope coiling, and can reduce the time required to perform the procedure. With the Bend Sensor ® the current monitoring equipment can graphically display the position and formation of the colonoscope.


Haemoband introduced the product at the Medica 2014 medical trade show in Dusseldorf, Germany.  Upon the completion of the clinical trials Haemoband will push to have the product certified and available to meet the pent-up demand for inexpensive, accurate methods of determining the position of the colonoscopes, and Haemoband's device is the first product in that class. The Company is in the process of completing manufacturing of the sensors and base units that will be utilized in the clinical trials.  Once development and certification of the device is completed it is anticipated that we will enter into a long term Manufacturing and Supply Agreement with Haemoband.


Because of the large demand, and the fact that this is a disposable device, it is anticipated that we could begin producing sensors for this device in the millions of sensors annually as acceptance and incorporation of the sensors occurs. Growth in the medical sensors industry has been robust in recent years and is expected to continue to grow.  Pressure and flow sensors are singled out for particularly strong growth--which are two of Flexpoint's main competencies. With its Haemoband partnership, Flexpoint gains entry into an industry that will likely factor prominently in its future growth.


Other Medical Devices


Haemoband, with Flexpoint as their design/development partner, has also begun a simultaneous launch of additional technologies for other medical applications.  The market size for the additional technologies may potentially be millions of units annually.


Flexpoint has also had repeat, multiple order volume from medical IoT customers such as Switzerland-based Reha Stim Medtec (formerly known as YouReHab) and South Korea-based Neofect.  These customers produce award winning and commercially available Bend Sensor ® - based rehabilitation systems.

The medical wearables application segment has produced orders from multiple companies. The most notable is Focal Wellness. Focal Wellness has entered the pre-mass commercialization phase with multiple global orthopedic product distributors of their Bend Sensor® based Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) system. Flexpoint is increasingly confident these will prove to be large revenue contributors in 2019 and beyond.


Medical Bed


Through a joint development agreement with R&D Products, the Company developed and produced 20 prototype medical beds that assist in the management of bed sores. Using the Bend Sensor® technology and accompanying electronics the bed is able to determine the position and movement of the person in the bed. The bed has the ability to roll a patient left or right to relieve pressure areas as well as to facilitate dressing changes. Needed adjustments can be made through relieving pressure areas to meet the required standards of care and patient comfort. The medical application for the bed was originally scheduled to launch in mid to late 2009. However, due to management changes and an acquisition, the project has been delayed.  


The bed technology has a commercial application that will be marketed as an in-home specialty mattress. The specialty (non-innerspring) segment of the bedding market has been growing rapidly over the past six to seven years. With the increasing demand of specialty mattresses, almost every mattress company has a specialty bed they promote. We have had a number of discussions with various mattress companies who have expressed interest in the concept.


R&D Products anticipates applying the medical bed concept and technology to a mattress cover that can be used for both adult in-home care or nursing home facilities or on infant beds.


Automotive Products


For the past several years, we have been in negotiations with several Tier 1 suppliers and OEMs and have proved the benefit and capabilities of the Bend Sensor ® technology in the automotive industry for the following products:


Seat Belt Reminder


While working with various Tier 1 automotive suppliers we developed and tested a seat belt reminder (SBR) sensor that alerts the occupant of an automobile to fasten his/her seatbelt.  We continue working with multiple manufacturers to potentially replace existing devices in the marketplace with a system we believe is superior in performance with the advantage of a lower price point.


Using the same concept, this product is currently being considered as a safety device, similar to the emergency vehicle application discussed below, to be used in school buses. A bus driver could immediately be alerted should any of the passengers be in an unsafe position prior to entering traffic. The Bend Sensor ® not only detects occupancy of a seat, but also has the capability of recording and logging the frequency of use over time.   This feature would enable transportation companies to use this recorded information to determine the most optimum usage of their capital equipment to maximize return on their investments. There have been some legislative debates over whether a bus, and school busses in particular, should provide seatbelts for all of the passengers. Coupled with Intertek's Protek Passenger Awareness System, our SBR could be easily implemented to fulfill requirements of such legislation.   


Horn Switch


A major automobile manufacturer has partnered with Tier 1 suppliers to test our patented horn switch to replace their existing technology. Because the Bend Sensor ® switch and the associated electronics have very few moving parts, our switch will help eliminate the squeaks, rattles and other noise associated with the existing technology in use. Additionally, because the Bend Sensor ® has few moving parts, it can withstand a higher number of actuations without replacement.


Testing began in October 2013 and included installation of our horn switch into multiple cars, which were then driven by various executives, decision makers and engineers of the company.  The driving tests included a 150,000-mile driving test in which the system functioned under actual driving conditions.  In July 2014, we announced the completion of this hands-on vehicle testing and the system functioned properly and there were no issues.


The Company executed an advanced stage turnkey design and development agreement with a Tier 1 automotive manufacturer in 2016.  The project was completed prior to yearend. The system has now reached “production readiness” status with the Tier 1 automotive manufacturer featuring the patented Flexpoint Horn Actuation system.


The Company anticipates that once the manufacturer implements the initial horn switch and the first units are integrated into existing production the project will be expanded to incorporate additional switches on the horn pad of multiple vehicle platforms. The automobile manufacturer is also evaluating the use of the Bend Sensor ® as a switch to open rear doors of SUV's and as a seat belt reminder (SBR).

The Company believes that this will advance project along the path for wide-spread adoption and production deployment of the horn switch.


Braking Systems


HTK Engineering, LLC continues to market their safety mechanism specifically designed for garbage trucks and other large commercial vehicles. Most commercial vehicles have an "air braking system" which can lose pressure and disengage the brakes while the vehicle is still running. Our Bend Sensor ® technology is the key component of the HTK system, which provides a backup braking system, preventing the vehicle from inadvertently rolling into people, buildings or other vehicles. Part of HTK's marketing effort has been to involve insurance companies who have paid claims related to the initial brake failure. Because the HTK system is easily installed and is adaptable to most vehicles, insurance companies have indicated they would provide a reduction in premiums should their customers install the HTK system.


The Company has developed a similar system for Vista Brakelock Systems, LLC, in Lake Mary, Florida for use on fire trucks. The first units have been delivered and installed with additional orders to follow.


Emergency Vehicles


Intertek Industrial Corp., located in Jacksonville, Florida, is a leading supplier of quality seatbelt systems and safety devices to the emergency vehicle market. Their Protek Passenger Awareness System uses our Bend Sensor ® technology to enhance the safety of passengers and personnel in emergency vehicles. The system is installed in the seats of the rear compartments of the emergency vehicle and provides the driver with constant feedback as to the “seated and secured” status of passengers and personnel in the rear of the vehicle. The system is currently installed in about 30 ambulances and is being tested for use in other types of emergency vehicles.   Intertek continues to issue additional purchase orders for their existing and new customers.


Flow Control Applications


Our flexible sensor has proven to be an extremely robust and durable flow control switch. The Bend Sensor ® product allows for the measurement of liquid and air flow, and has been tested to over 35 million cycles without failure. The Company is currently working with a global leader in cleaning, sanitizing, food safety products who have been testing the Bend Sensor ® as a measuring and dispensing device for their harsh chemical products.  When the Bend Sensor ® device is placed in a flow stream, it can measure if flow is occurring, or it can measure the amount of flow that is occurring. The fact that our design incorporates a single layer flexible device allows it to effectively operate in many harsh environments. While other technologies are affected by dirt, dust, and liquids, the Bend Sensor ® product is able to reliably operate in those environments.  An international supplier of integrated tinting solutions is interested in a similar dispensing system for its paint manufacturers, retail chains and plastic producers. We continue to receive inquiries from a variety of industries for flow applications.


Shoe Application


We have continued our work with Bend Tech, LLC to develop and market a sensor system that will provide real time feedback and analysis on balance, performance and cadence to runners and other athletes. Utilizing several of our patented Bend Sensor® technology sensors, located within the shoe, provides real-time feedback of a runner's performance that can be utilized for training and teaching proper technique that will aid in the prevention of injuries.


Because the sensor features a single layer construction, the sensors are not damaged or degraded by dust, dirt or other particulates. Moisture and immersion in mud, water, sweat and many other chemicals are not an issue.


The system will provide real time analysis showing balance, performance and other pertinent data relating to the performance of the individual. The fast response time of the sensor allows it to provide time differentials between heel and toe strike. Other metrics like cadence, ground contact time, the time the foot is not in contact with the ground; shoe loading and unloading profiles and information critical to training and injury prevention can be measured and captured for later review and analysis. Running information can be easily integrated into social media and training logs for quick feedback and analysis.


The electronics include miniaturized printed circuit boards, a wireless communication system, blue tooth technologies, wireless rechargeable batteries and "smart phone" interface. Although the original device was developed to be used in running shoes, the Company has incorporated the shoe technology into a golf training tool that will include golf clubs fitted with our sensors.

In December 2014 we announced the launch, in conjunction with Bend Tech L.L.C., of a shoe insole system, the Mettis Trainer.  While introduction of the products has been delayed, we expect to have the product available for delivery in 2019.  Bend Tech is beginning to finalize partnerships with larger companies already involved in the athletic shoe industry for distribution.

Other Applications


Management believes the potential market for our technology includes using the technology to replace or upgrade existing devices used in industrial control systems, medical equipment and instrumentation, computer peripherals, automotive transmission equipment, commercial vending equipment and other devices.  We have developed, or are developing:

·

a ruptured disc/bursting disc utilizing the Bend Sensor ® as the detection/alarm element of a ruptured disc device;

·

an infant bed cover using our patented sensors that will be used to monitor infants in the prevention of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS);

·

video gaming devices; and

·

other sports applications


The Company has developed several sports-related products featuring the Company's patented Bend Sensor ® technology. The products currently include the use of sensor technology for bowling and golf shoes. The products will be used to help measure and improve an individual's performance. Among other things the shoes will measure distribution of weight and weight transfer during the monitored event and present a recorded image of the individual's performance for evaluation.  The products are currently being demonstrated to major equipment manufacturers and distributors and the Company anticipates they could be easily brought to market through sports related OEM's.  


We intend to further identify applications of our technology in numerous fields and industries.  A core marketing strategy is to seek applications of our technology for products used by customers that emphasize functionality, reliability, quality, and user convenience.


BUSINESS STRATEGY


Due to the many potential applications of our technology and our limited financial and other resources, management made the decision to focus our marketing efforts on a few products that can be brought to market quickly, will provide maximum exposure for the technology and will generate additional orders for products from a growing customer base. This has required us to coordinate our product design, manufacturing, distribution and service strategies in a long-term business model, while still generating short term revenues. Another strategic marketing strategy has been to develop a standard line of sensor products with corresponding hardware, electronics and software to facilitate ease of implementation of our technology into a customer's existing system.


Our standard product line is expected to be sold directly to the customer and through manufacturer's representatives and distributors. We have also expanded our product offering to include substantially complete value-added assemblies, which includes the electronics and software. We continue to consider the licensing of our technology and/or products or strategic partnership arrangements that will generate sufficient revenues to sustain our operations. We anticipate selling primarily to OEM or Tier 1 suppliers for worldwide distribution.  For our international customers, we anticipate selling and distributing our products through various manufacturer representatives and distributors.


Since our intended customers are typically technology companies, the design phase of the sales cycle is extremely important and considerably longer than in other industries. The original equipment manufacturers typically approach us with a conceptual product and request that we assist in the initial engineering, design, development and production of a working prototype from which we generate limited revenues. The prototype is then tested in the environment in which the ultimate product will be placed.  During this process, the customer is in frequent contact with our application and electrical engineers. Customers also meet with internal sales and support individuals to discuss marketing and distribution channels and strategies for the end consumer products.


We also have added value by expanding our sensor product lines to include circuit boards, enclosures, etc. and have moved toward a fully integrated product while validating and showing the versatility of our Bend Sensor ® technology. As mentioned above we currently have several such fully developed products that will directly compete with existing products in the automotive industry. We have also used like designs to develop similar products in other industries, thus leveraging the initial engineering and design work. We believe our products provide great reliability and functionality and can be implemented at a lower overall cost to the customer. These fully integrated products will create a much larger value added profit margin for us. However, there is no assurance that such profit margins will be achieved or that these products will be produced in volumes sufficient to generate significant revenue in the near future.


MARKETING AND SALES


Our products are being marketed directly to manufacturers or distributors and we offer our automotive products primarily to original equipment manufacturers (“OEM’s”), either directly or through Tier 1 suppliers, or through collaborative efforts with other specialized suppliers. Our primary marketing objectives are to continue to generate demand for our products, enhance name and



9



product recognition and support OEM’s and manufactures. As we gain success in branding our name and product recognition we believe the successful use of our products by OEM’s and Tier 1 suppliers will generate additional demand for higher quantity orders of our existing products. We also anticipate that the success of our existing products will allow us to successfully introduce new products and applications to the market.


Due to limited resources our sales strategy depends on a few OEM’s and manufacturers and, were we to lose their business, it will have a significant adverse effect on our results of operations until alternative distribution channels can be established.  We may consider contractual commitments to OEM’s and Tier 1 suppliers in exchange for fees and/or royalties.  In addition, because we sell on a limited basis directly to end users, we are dependent, in part, on the OEM’s for information about retail product sales and demand for sensor technology.  Accordingly, any rapid cessation of purchases or a switch to other companies' products by end users may not be immediately evident to us, and could result in increased product returns.


We have enhanced our website at www.flexpoint.com to include videos on our current projects and also intend to market our products through the use of other social media, and by developing a field sales force which includes direct marketing employees in strategic areas and potentially manufacturer’s representatives nationwide to generate OEM and Tier 1 supplier customers.  As our market grows we anticipate expanding our distribution network throughout the world.  There can be no assurance that we will be successful in developing such a sales force or in expanding our distribution network.


MANUFACTURING AND DISTRIBUTION


Automobile manufacturers, Tier 1 suppliers and many international companies require all parts to be manufactured in ISO/TS-16949 certified facilities. IS0/TS-16949 is a Quality Management System that contains the particular requirements for the application of ISO 9001:2000 for automotive production and relevant service part organization.  TS-16949 is based on ISO requirements 9001:2000, but contains additional requirements that are specific to the automotive industry.  These additions are considered automotive “interpretations” by the ISO community of accreditation bodies and registrars. TS-16949 is a common supplier quality standard for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford Motor Company and General Motors Corporation. TS-16949 applies to suppliers of production materials, production and service parts, heat treating, painting and plating and other finishing services. It does not, therefore, apply to all suppliers of the major automotive companies.


When volumes dictate, our goal will be to qualify our production line and facility as an ISO/TS 16949 production line and facility as it is required for manufacturing automotive and related parts. We may qualify our production line and facilities.  We have entered into an agreement with the Walker Component Group to assist in meeting these qualifications now. The Walker Component Group is a well-established manufacturing company with expertise and certifications, including ISO 9001:2008, ROHS and REACH certifications that will dramatically enhance Flexpoint’s assembly infrastructure and assist to market products such as those that have been developed with HTK Engineering and InterTek. With numerous Fortune 100 clients, the Walker Component Group will add considerable experience, prestige, and confidence to every project that it enters into with Flexpoint. This agreement will increase the marketability of our products to automotive Tier 1 and major parts suppliers.


SOURCE OF RAW MATERIALS


The Bend Sensor ® product consists of a coated substrate, such as plastic, that changes in electrical conductivity as it is bent. Electronic systems connect to the sensor and measure with fine detail the amount of bending or movement that occurs. The single layer design of the Bend Sensor ® eliminates many of the problems associated with conventional sensors such as dust, dirt, liquids, heat or pressure. Depending on the application an over-laminate or over-molding may also be applied to the sensors for added environmental protection. Due to its unique construction and the ability to use multiple types of substrates, all raw materials needed to produce the Bend Sensor ® are readily available and therefore the Company is not reliant on a single supplier.

The sensor business is highly competitive and competition is expected to continue to increase.  We will compete directly with firms that have longer operating histories, more experience, substantially greater financial resources, greater size, more substantial research and development and marketing organizations, established distribution channels and are better situated in the market.  We do not yet have an established long term customer base that orders products on a constant basis and we will encounter a high degree of competition as we develop a larger customer base.


To management's knowledge, technology similar to our technology is currently in production by other competitors. Management believes that our products will be sufficiently distinguishable from the existing products so that it will not compete directly with existing sensor products.  Certain force transducer sensors and fiber optic sensors are comparable to our Bend Sensor ® technology; however, management believes that the force transducer sensor is not as reliable as our Bend Sensor ® technology and that the fiber



10



optic sensors are not as cost effective as our Bend Sensor ® technology.  As this new area grows, additional manufacturers may attempt to introduce similar products and competition could intensify.


In the medical electronics field, our competitors are the potentiometer manufacturers.  In the auto seat field our competitors are the numerous capacitive, piezo, infrared, force sensor resister and ultrasonic sensor manufacturers.  Such competitors may use their economic strength and relationships to influence the market to continue to buy their existing products.  One or more of these competitors could use their resources to improve their current products or develop new products that may compete more effectively with our products.  New competitors may emerge and may develop products and capabilities which compete directly with our products. No assurance can be given that we will be successful in competing in the industries identified or in other industries that would benefit from our Bend Sensor ® technology.


We intend to compete by offering products that have enhanced value, added features, ease of use, functionality, compatibility, reliability, comparable price, quality and support.  Management also believes our intellectual property provides an advantage over current competitors.  Although management believes that our products will be well received in the various sensor markets because of their innovative features, performance characteristics and cost-effective pricing, there can be no assurance that comparable or superior products incorporating more advanced technology or other features or having better price or performance characteristics will not be introduced by competitors with greater resources than ours.


PATENTS AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY


We regard certain of our designs as proprietary and attempt to protect them with patents and by restricting disclosure of the designs as trade secrets.  We have five issued patents for our Bend Sensor ® technology and have exclusive rights to additional patents and intellectual property, and are in the process of preparing additional patents for new types of sensors and devices using our technology. Due to the joint development of the medical bed product, we believe we also have claims and protection under the patents filed for this specific application.  Patents do expire and it will be necessary for us to file patents in the United States and in various foreign countries for each application we develop so that it is protected from competition.   We also have products that use our unique sensor technology and we are exploring the viability of filing new patents based on the enhancements and the specific applications or value added products.  We must file patents on any technology for which we develop enhancements that contain material improvements to the original technology, thereby extending the original life of our original patents.  We are aware of three potentially conflicting patents which we believe will not affect our current or planned use of our technology.


There can be no assurance that the protection provided by patents and patent applications, if issued, will be broad enough to prevent competitors from introducing similar products or that such patents, if challenged, will be upheld by the courts of any jurisdiction. Patent infringement litigation, either to enforce our patents or defend us from infringement suits, are expensive and could divert resources from other planned uses.   


Patent applications filed in foreign countries and patents in those countries are subject to laws and procedures that differ from those in the United States.  Patent protection in foreign countries may be different from patent protection under United States laws and may not be as favorable to us.  We also attempt to protect our proprietary information through the use of confidentiality agreements and by limiting access to our facilities.  There can be no assurance that our program of patents, confidentiality agreements and restricted access to our facilities will be sufficient to protect our proprietary technology.


Management believes that because of the rapid pace of technological change in our markets, legal protection of our proprietary information is less significant to our competitive position than factors such as continuing product innovation in response to evolving industry standards, technical and cost-effective manufacturing expertise, effective product marketing strategies and customer service. Without legal protection; however, it may be possible for third parties to commercially exploit the proprietary aspects of our products.


MAJOR CUSTOMERS


Currently, we have a limited customer base and for the year ending 2018 four customers represented approximately 57% of the Company’s revenue:  Neofect represented approximately 10%, Haemoband represented approximately 15%, Nypro represented approximately 29% and CaptoGlove represented approximately 13% of the Company’s revenue. This high concentration was primarily related to manufacturing of sensors for the toy industry and engineering and design work in the medical and wearables industries.


EMPLOYEES


As of the date of this filing we have 4 full time employees, 1 part-time employee, employ 3 to 5 sub-contractors and multiple consultants. Until we are under full production with some of our products we will continue to use sub-contractors and consultants



11



which helps to keep our overall labor cost to a minimum. Our employees are not presently covered by any collective bargaining agreement.  We have not experienced any work stoppages and believe that our relations with our employees are good.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS


Factors Affecting Future Performance


We have a history of losses and may never become profitable.


We are currently unable to fund our day-to-day operations from revenues and the limited revenues have impeded our continued growth and have caused delays in our business development.  We have generated operating capital from private placements and the use of convertible notes that have helped fund our operations in the past.  During 2018, we recorded a net loss of $906,093 and, as of the date of this filing, we are unsure that total revenues in 2019 will be sufficient to support our planned manufacturing operations, pay off existing debt and fund all of our research and development. In addition, with the economic uncertainties we have had to further expand our business activities to include additional markets; therefore, we anticipate needing to raise an additional funding. We may be required to rely on further debt financing, further loans from related parties, and private placements of our common stock for our additional cash needs. Such funding sources may not be available or the terms of such funding sources may not be acceptable to the Company.  If the Company is unable to find such funding it could have a material adverse effect on our ability to continue as a going concern.


Our success is dependent on our intellectual property rights which are difficult to protect.


Our future success depends on our ability to protect our intellectual property.  We use a combination of patents and other intellectual property arrangements to protect our intellectual property.  There can be no assurance that the protection provided by our patents will be broad enough to prevent competitors from introducing similar products or that our patents, if challenged, will be upheld by courts of any jurisdiction.  Patent infringement litigation, either to enforce our patents or defend ourselves from infringement suits, will be expensive and could divert our limited resources from other planned uses.  Patent applications filed in foreign countries and patents in these countries are subject to laws and procedures that differ from those in the U.S. and may not be as favorable to us.  We also attempt to protect our confidential information through the use of confidentiality agreements and by limiting access to our facilities. There can be no assurance that our program of patents, confidentiality agreements and restricted access to our facilities will be sufficient to protect our confidential information from competitors.


Research and development may result in problems which may become insurmountable to full implementation of production.


Customers request that we create prototypes and perform pre-production engineering, research and development. As a result, we are exposed to the risk that we may find problems in our designs that are insurmountable to fulfill production.  In that event, we will be unable to recover the costs of the pre-production engineering, research and development.  However, we are currently unaware of any insurmountable problems with ongoing engineering, research and development that may prevent further development of an application and products.


Because we are significantly smaller than the majority of our competitors, we may lack the financial resources needed to capture increased market share.


The market for sensor devices is extremely competitive, and we expect that competition will intensify in the future. There can be no assurance that we will be able to compete successfully against current or future competitors or that competitive pressures we face will not materially adversely affect our business, operating results or financial condition.  We believe that none of our competitors have a product that is superior to our Bend Sensor ® technology at this time.  However, many of our competitors and potential competitors have substantially greater financial, technical and marketing resources, larger customer bases, longer operating histories, greater name recognition and more established relationships than we do.  These competitors may be able to undertake more extensive marketing campaigns, adopt more aggressive pricing policies and devote substantially more resources to developing new products and markets than we can.


Ongoing industry consolidation among worldwide automotive parts suppliers may limit the market potential for our products.




12



In the automotive parts industry, there has been a trend of consolidation through business combinations and acquisitions of complementary technologies among worldwide suppliers as these suppliers seek to build stronger customer relationships with automobile manufacturers.  Automobile manufacturers look to Tier 1 suppliers (major suppliers) to provide fully engineered systems and pre-assembled combinations of components rather than individual components.  This trend of consolidation of suppliers may

result in fewer Tier 1 suppliers and thus limit the marketing opportunities for our Bend Sensor ® technology.   These industry trends may limit the market for our products in these industries.



ITEM 2.   PROPERTIES


We currently occupy approximately 11,639 square feet of office and manufacturing space from American Covers, Inc., dba Handstands. The building is located in a business park in Draper, Utah which consists primarily of high tech manufacturing firms and it is located adjacent to Utah’s main interstate highway.  In 2014 the Company extended the operating lease agreement for its manufacturing facility in Draper, Utah. Under the terms of a three year lease extension effective January 1, 2015, the monthly rent remained at $8,950 per month for 2015, increased to $9,300 per month for 2016 and to $9,600 per month for 2017. The lease further provides that on the expiration of the lease on December 31, 2017, the lease becomes a month to month lease at a rate of the current monthly lease rate ($9,600), plus an increase of 10%, ($10,560 per month in 2018), with a 10% increase on the anniversary date of each succeeding year.  The Company will pay a lease rate of $11,620 per month in 2019.

ITEM 5.  MARKET FOR REGISTRANT’S COMMON EQUITY, RELATED STOCKHOLDER

MATTERS AND ISSUER PURCHASE OF EQUITY SECURITIES


MARKET INFORMATION


Our common stock is quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board under the symbol “FLXT.”   Any over-the-counter market quotations in this trading system reflect inter-dealer prices, without retail mark-up, mark-downs or commissions, and may not necessarily represent actual transactions.

 

Our shares are subject to Section 15(g) and Rule 15g-9 of the Securities and Exchange Act, commonly referred to as the “penny stock” rule. The rule defines penny stock to be any equity security that has a market price less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. These rules may restrict the ability of broker-dealers to trade or maintain a market in our common stock and may affect the ability of shareholders to sell their shares.  Broker-dealers who sell penny stocks to persons other than established customers and accredited investors must make a special suitability determination for the purchase of the security.  Accredited investors, in general, include individuals with assets in excess of $1,000,000 (not including the value of their personal residence) or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 together with their spouse, and certain institutional investors.  The rules require the broker-dealer to receive the purchaser’s written consent to the transaction prior to the purchase and require the broker-dealer to deliver a risk disclosure document relating to the penny stock prior to the first transaction.  A broker-dealer also must disclose the commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative, and current quotations for the security.  Finally, monthly statements must be sent to customers disclosing recent price information for the penny stocks.


HOLDERS


As of April 1, 2019 we had approximately 471 stockholders of record of our common stock, which does not include “street accounts” of securities brokers.   Our transfer agent is Standard Registrar & Transfer Co., Inc., located in Salt Lake City, Utah.

ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION

AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


EXECUTIVE OVERVIEW


Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. is a company engaged principally in improving its unique sensor technology, expanding its suite of products, developing new sensor applications, obtaining financing and seeking long-term sustainable manufacturing contracts.  Our operations have not yet commenced to a commercially sustainable level and include designing, engineering, manufacturing and selling sensor technology and products featuring our Bend Sensor ® technology and equipment.


Finalizing long-term, constant revenue generating production contracts with our existing and other customers remains our greatest challenge because our on-going business is dependent on the types of revenues and cash flows generated by such contracts. Cash flow and cash requirement risks are closely tied to and are dependent upon our ability to attract significant long-term production contracts.  We must continue to obtain funding to operate and expand our operations so that we can deliver our unique Bend Sensor ® and Bend Sensor ® related technologies and products to the market.  Management believes that even though we are making positive strides forward with our business plan we will need to raise additional operating capital.


Worldwide automakers are faced with the challenge of providing a safer, more energy efficient, longer lasting product that consumers can afford. This has required automakers to search new and innovative ways to lower the overall weight of the vehicle and to improve its fuel efficiencies, while lowering the cost. We continue to experience an increased interest regarding automotive and other potential applications for our sensor technology because they meet this criterion. With its versatility, light weight, single layer construction and the fact that it is currently being used in various safety devices the Bend Sensor ® is positioned well to meet the challenges that the automobile industry is facing.


LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES


Currently our revenue is primarily from design contract, testing and limited production services for prototypes and samples, and is not to a level to support our operations.  However, we believe, based upon current orders and projected orders over the next twelve months, that we could be producing sensors under long-term contracts that will help support our existing operations and potential future growth. Management recognizes such contracts usually go through a long negotiation process and there can be no guarantee that we will be successful in our negotiations or that such contracts will be sufficient to support our current operations in the near future.


For the past twelve months we have relied on the proceeds of convertible loans from existing shareholders and private placements of our common stock.  During 2018 and 2017, the Company secured financing to fund its operations by issuing additional convertible notes to Capital Communications LLC and officers, the balances of which were $1,090,000 and $840,000 as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, net of discounts of $27,092 and $72,986, respectively. The notes have an annual interest rate of 10% and default rate of 15%, have various maturity dates, and are secured by the Company’s business assets.




14



Management believes that our current cash burn rate is approximately $65,000 per month and that proceeds from additional convertible notes and estimated revenues for engineering design and prototype products will be sufficient to fund the next twelve months of operations.  Our auditors have expressed doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern and that we may not realize significant revenue or become profitable within the next twelve months. We will require additional financing to fund our short-term cash needs. We will have to rely on additional debt financing, loans from existing shareholders and private placements of common stock for additional funding. Based upon our current purchase orders and anticipated purchase orders over the next twelve months our projected revenues by the end of 2019 are anticipated to cover our projected operating expenses, based on our current burn rate. However, we cannot assure you that we will be able to obtain short-term financing, or that sources of such financing, if any, will continue to be available, and if available, that they will be on terms favorable to us. Nor is there any guarantee that the projected volume of purchase orders will meet the volumes that we anticipate.


We also expect that in the short term we may have to continue to issue common stock to pay for services and agreements rather than use our limited cash resources.  Any issuance of common stock will likely be pursuant to exemptions provided by federal and state securities laws.  The purchasers and manner of issuance will be determined according to our financial needs and the available exemptions.  We also note that if we issue more shares of our common stock our shareholders may experience dilution in the value per share of their common stock.  


As we enter into new agreements, we must ensure that those agreements provide adequate funding for any pre-production research and development and manufacturing costs. If we are successful in establishing agreements with adequate initial funding, management believes that our operations for the long term will be funded by revenues, licensing fees and/or royalties related to these agreements. However, we have formalized only a few agreements during the past four years and there can be no assurance that the agreements will generate sufficient revenues or be profitable in the future or that a desired technological application will be successful enough to produce the volumes and profits necessary to fund our operations.  


COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES


Our principal commitments at December 31, 2018 consist of total current liabilities of $3,306,614, which includes $1,277,389 in convertible notes, net of discounts.


Our long term lease of our manufacturing facility was extended effective January 1, 2015 and expired December 31, 2017.  We are now renting the facility on a month-to-month basis.


Our total current liabilities include accounts payable of $354,422 related to normal operating expenses, including health insurance, utilities, production supplies, legal expenses and travel expense.  Accrued liabilities at December 31, 2018, were $1,369,946 and were related to payroll tax liabilities, tax expenses,  accrued interest, investor relations consulting, and accrued Paid Time Off, a combination vacation-sick leave policy, and amounts due to related parties.


OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS


We have not entered into any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources and would be considered material to investors.


RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


The following discussions are based on the consolidated operations of Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. and its former subsidiaries, Sensitron, Inc. and Flexpoint International, LLC, and should be read in conjunction with our audited financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017.  These financial statements are included in this report at Part II, Item 8, below.

Our revenue for 2018 decreased $72,838 as compared to 2017.  The decrease resulted from product sales of $97,723 in 2018 compared to $235,140 in 2017, as sales to toy manufacturers were significantly reduced.  Our revenue was primarily derived from the manufacturing of sensors for the wearable and toy industries, design and development engineering, prototype products and sales of our fully integrated products. Revenue from research and development engineering and prototype product contracts is generally recognized as the services are provided and accepted by the customer. Revenue from contracts to license technology to others is deferred until all conditions under the contract are met and then the sale is recognized as licensing royalty revenue over the remaining term of the contract.  Revenue from the sale of a product is recorded at the time of shipment to the customer. Management anticipates that revenue will increase as we continue to provide engineering services and our customers continue to order more frequently and in larger quantities.


Total operating costs and expenses were $1,028,154 in 2018 compared to $1,146,126 in 2017. As we work to commercialize products and establish distribution channels we are also working to bring greater efficiencies and cost reductions to our operations.  Accordingly, administrative and marketing expenses decreased by $88,573 for 2018 compared to 2017. The cost of revenue in 2018 decreased in 2018 as a result of the lower sales levels.  Amortization of patents and proprietary technology expense decreased in 2018 as some of the intellectual property became fully amortized.  


Total other expense for the year ending December 31, 2018 was $145,706 compared to $278,120 in 2017.  Other expense is comprised primarily of interest expense of $316,980 in 2018, compared to interest expense of $332,616 in 2017.  In 2018 we recognized a gain on derivative liabilities of $171,227, compared to a $60,734 loss on derivative liabilities recognized in 2017.


As we continued to mature into a manufacturing company our engineering design and production revenues increased as a percent of our total revenue.  As we expand and sell our existing suite of products, and as we grow the relationship with our customers, we expect this trend to continue in the future. We are not able to guarantee that our operating losses will be reduced in the short term.

The chart below presents a summary of our consolidated balance sheets at December 31, 2018 and 2017.

Cash and cash equivalents increased by $4,966 in 2018 compared to 2017. Until such time as our revenue increases, cash to fund our operations will be our most critical factor. As we expand our customer base and product offerings we will need to raise additional operating capital during 2019. It is expected that this will be accomplished by securing additional loans from related parties and existing shareholders, through the private placement of stock, or through the licensing of our technology. We anticipate that we will need to raise approximately $500,000 to $800,000 in funding to support our existing operations and our anticipated growth during 2019.


Our current assets decreased to $46,402 during the year ending December 31, 2018 compared to $70,230 during the same period in 2017. This decrease is primarily due to decreases in accounts receivable.  The decrease in our non-current assets at December 31, 2018 compared to 2017 is due to the amortization associated with our long-lived assets. These assets include property and equipment, patents and proprietary technology.  


Accrued liabilities increased at December 31, 2018 by $411,136 when compared to December 31, 2017. The increase is primarily due to the accrual of interest expense related to notes payable. Total liabilities increased by $848,016 at December 31, 2018 as the result of the increase in accrued liabilities and the issuance of additional convertible notes payable, and increases in accrued payroll and payroll taxes.


CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES


The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes.  Estimates of particular significance in our financial statements include goodwill and the annual tests for impairment of goodwill and valuing stock option compensation.



16




We annually test long-lived assets for impairment or when a triggering event occurs. Impairment is indicated if undiscounted cash flows are less than the carrying value of the assets.  The analysis compared the present value of projected net cash flows for the remaining current year and next two years against the carrying value of the long-lived assets. Under similar analysis no impairment charge was taken during the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 or the twelve months ended December 31, 2017. Impairment tests will be conducted on a regular basis and, should they indicate a carrying value in excess of fair value, additional charges may be required.


We account for stock options under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards, Accounting Standards Codification Topic 718, Stock Compensation.  The pronouncement requires that recognition of the cost of employee services received in exchange for stock options and awards of equity instruments be based on the grant-date fair value of such options and awards and is recognized as an expense in operations over the period they vest.  The fair value of the options we have granted is estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes American option-pricing model.  Option pricing models require the input of highly sensitive assumptions, including expected stock volatility.  Also, our stock options have characteristics significantly different from those of traded options, and changes in the subjective input assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimate. Management believes the best input assumptions available were used to value the options and that the resulting option values are reasonable.  For the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 we recognized $0 and $19,943, respectively, of stock-based compensation expense for our stock options and there is no additional unrecognized compensation cost related to employee stock options that will be recognized based upon the current grants issued.


Tax Cuts and Jobs Act -  The Company has evaluated Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 regarding the impact of the decreased tax rates of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act.  See “Note 6 – Income Taxes” in the notes to our financial statements for schedules that describe the new rates adjusted in the period enacted.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc.:

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. (“the Company”) as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2018 and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2018, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Explanatory Paragraph Regarding Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a net capital deficiency which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on our audits.  We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (“PCAOB”) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks.  Such procedures included examining on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements.  Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.  We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

FLEXPOINT SENSOR SYSTEMS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


NOTE 1 NATURE OF BUSINESS


Nature of Operations – Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. (the Company) is located in Draper, Utah. The Company’s activities to date have included acquiring equipment and enhancing technology, obtaining financing, production and seeking long-term manufacturing contracts. The Company’s operations are in designing, engineering, manufacturing and selling sensor technology and equipment using flexible potentiometer technology. Through December 31, 2018 the Company continued to manufacture products and sensors to fill customer orders and provide engineering and design work.


Principles of Consolidation – The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Flexpoint International,  LLC.  Intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated in consolidation.


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 at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.


Cash and Cash Equivalents – Cash and cash equivalents are considered to be cash and a highly liquid security with original maturities of three months or less.


Fair Value Measurements -  The fair value of a financial instrument is the amount that could be received upon the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Financial assets are marked to bid prices and financial liabilities are marked to offer prices. The fair value should be calculated based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, not on assumptions specific to the entity. In addition, the fair value of liabilities should include consideration of non-performance risk, including the party’s own credit risk.

 

Fair value measurements do not include transaction costs. A fair value hierarchy is used to prioritize the quality and reliability of the information used to determine fair values. Categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The fair value hierarchy is defined into the following three categories:

 

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

 

Level 2: Observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of fair value of assets or liabilities.

 

To the extent that valuation is based on models or inputs that are less observable or unobservable in the market, the determination of fair value requires more judgment. In certain cases, the inputs used to measure fair value may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In such cases, for disclosure purposes, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the fair value measurement is disclosed and is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

 

The carrying value of the Company’s cash, accounts payable, short-term borrowings (including convertible notes payable), and other current assets and liabilities approximate fair value because of their short-term maturity.

 

The Company has classified the inputs used in valuing its derivative liabilities as level 3 inputs. The Company valued its derivatives using the binomial lattice model. While the Company believes that its valuation methods are appropriate and consistent with other market participants, it recognizes that the use of different methodologies or assumptions to determine the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a different estimate of fair value at the reporting date. The primary assumptions that would significantly affect the fair values using the methods discussed below are that of volatility and market price of the underlying common stock of the Company.




24



Accounts Receivable – Trade accounts receivable are generally recorded at the time product is shipped or services are provided including any shipping and handling fees. Contracts associated with design and development engineering generally require a deposit of 50% of the quoted price prior to the commencement of work. The deposit is considered deferred income until the entire project is completed and accepted by the customer, at which time the entire contract price is billed to the customer and the deposit applied. The Company has established an allowance for bad debts based on a historical experience and an analysis of risk associated with the account balances.  The balance in the allowance account was $136,761 and $145,194 in the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.  


Inventories – The Company does not currently have inventory.  However, as production levels increase inventories will be carried on the balance sheet.   Inventories will be stated at the lower of cost or market or net realizable value. Cost is determined by using the first in, first out (FIFO) method.  


Going Concern – The Company suffered losses of $906,094 and $1,083,624 and used cash in operating activities of $290,034 and $410,897 during the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.  At December 31, 2018, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $28,212,547.  These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset carrying amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that might result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.


From 2008 through 2018 the Company raised $5,734,278, which includes $295,000 raised in 2018, in additional capital, including accrued interest, through the issuance of long and short-term notes to related and other parties. All of the notes had an annual interest rate of 8% or 15% and were secured by the Company’s business equipment. The notes also had a conversion feature for restricted common shares ranging from $0.05 to $0.20 per share with maturity dates of December 31, 2018 through December 31, 2019.


In November 2017, $812,597 in convertible notes and accrued interest were converted into 14,500,000 shares of restricted common stock at an average conversion price of approximately $0.05 per share.  The conversion resulted in a $115,183 gain recognized on the extinguishment of the debt.


Property and Equipment Property and equipment are stated at cost.  Additions and major improvements are capitalized while maintenance and repairs are charged to operations.  Upon trade-in, sale or retirement of property and equipment, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is recognized. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method and is recognized over the estimated useful lives of the property and equipment, which range from three to ten years.


Valuation of Long-lived Assets – The carrying values of the Company’s long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment annually and whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that they may not be recoverable. When projections indicate that the carrying value of the long-lived asset is not recoverable, the carrying value is reduced by the estimated excess of the carrying value over the projected discounted cash flows. Under similar analysis no impairment charge was taken during the year ended December 31, 2018.  Impairment tests will be conducted on an annual basis and, should they indicate a carrying value in excess of fair value, additional impairment charges may be required.


Intangible Assets – Costs to obtain or develop patents are capitalized and amortized over the remaining life of the patents, and technology rights are amortized over their estimated useful lives. The Company currently has the right to several patents and proprietary technology.  Patents and technology are amortized from the date the Company acquires or is awarded the patent or technology right, over their estimated useful lives, which range from 5 to 15 years.  An impairment charge is recognized if the carrying amount is not recoverable and the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the intangible assets as determined by projected discounted net future cash flows.  Under similar analysis there was no impairment charge taken during the year ended December 31, 2018.


Research and Development – Research and development costs are recognized as an expense during the period incurred, which is until the conceptual formulation, design, and testing of a process is completed and the process has been determined to be commercially viable.


Goodwill – Goodwill represents the excess of the Company’s reorganization value over the fair value of net assets of the Company upon emergence from bankruptcy. Goodwill is not amortized, but is tested for impairment annually on December 31, or at interim periods when a triggering event occurs using a fair value approach. According to Accounting Standards Codification (or “ASC”) 350-20 Intangibles – Goodwill and Other, a fair-value-based test is applied at the overall Company level. The test compares the fair value of the Company to the carrying value of its net assets. This test requires various judgments and estimates. The fair value of the Company is allocated to the Company’s assets and liabilities based upon their



25



fair values with the excess fair value allocated to goodwill. An impairment of goodwill is measured as the excess of the carrying amount of goodwill over the determined fair value.


Revenue Recognition – On January 1, 2018 the Company adopted ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers , and all of the related amendments (“new revenue standard”).  We have applied the new revenue standard to all contracts as of the date of the initial adoption.  The new revenue standard establishes five steps whereby a transaction is analyzed to determine if revenue has been earned and can be recognized.  The adoption of the new revenue standard did not have any effect on our financial statements .  The vast majority of our sales are made to order, for which orders we require a deposit of 50% of the value of the order.  That amount is put in a customer deposit account until the entire order has been manufactured and shipped.  At the ship date the Company has no further obligations under the contract and the revenue from the sale is recognized.

 

As part of our customer base is made up of international customers.  The table below allocates revenue between domestic and international customers.  The following table presents Flexpoint Sensor Systems revenues disaggregated by region and product type:

Stock-Based Compensation – The Company, in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation , records all share-based payments to employees at the grant-date fair value of the equity instruments issued. In accordance with ASC 718-10-30-9, Measurement Objective – Fair Value at Grant Date , the Company uses the closing price of the stock, as quoted by NASDAQ, on the date of the grant.  The Company believes this pricing method provides the best estimate of fair the fair value of the consideration given.  Compensation cost is recognized over the requisite service period.


The Company, in accordance with ASC 505, Compensation – Stock Compensation , establishes the value of equity instruments issued to non-employees for goods and services by using the closing price of the stock, as quoted by NASDAQ, on the date of the grant.  The Company believes this method fairly establishes the value of the goods and/or services received.


Basic and Diluted Loss Per Share – Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period.  Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of common shares and dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period. At December 31, 2018 and 2017, there were outstanding common share equivalents (options and convertible notes payable) which amounted to 26,064,935 and 16,644,625, respectively, of common stock. These common share equivalents were not included in the computation of diluted loss per share as their effect would have been anti-dilutive, thereby decreasing loss per common share.


Concentrations and Credit Risk - The Company has a few major customers who represents a significant portion of revenue, accounts receivable and notes receivable.  During the year ended December 31, 2018, three customers represented 57% of sales and represented 20% of accounts receivable.  A customer who is utilizing our technology for commercialization in shoes represented 65% of accounts receivable at December 31, 2018. The Company has a strong relationship with these customers and does not believe this concentration poses a significant risk, as their products are based entirely on the Company’s technologies.  


Income Taxes - The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Codification (ASC) 740: Income Taxes.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse.  Deferred tax assets will be reflected on the balance sheet when it is determined that it is more likely than not that the asset will be realized


Recent Accounting Pronouncements - In February 2018, the Financial Standards Accounting Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Statement Update No. 2018-02, “Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income.”  This ASU allows a reclassification from accumulated other comprehensive income (“AOCI”) to retained earnings for certain income tax effects stranded in AOCI as a result of the Tax Act.  The reclassification eliminates the stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Act and is intended to improve the usefulness of information reported to financial statement users.  ASU No. 2018-02 is effective for reporting periods beginning on January 1, 2019; early adoption is permitted. The Company does not currently have amounts to be reclassified under this and therefore believes it will not have an impact on its financial statements and statements of operations.


In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-07, “Compensation — Stock Compensation (Topic 718),” (“ASU 2018-07”). ASU 2018-07 is intended to reduce cost and complexity of financial reporting for non-employee share-based payments. Currently, the accounting requirements for non-employee and employee share-based payments are significantly different. ASU 2018-07 expands the scope of Topic 718, which currently only includes share-based payments to employees, to include share-based payments to non-employees for goods or services. Consequently, the accounting for share-based payments to non-employees and employees will be substantially aligned. This ASU supersedes Subtopic 505-50, “Equity — Equity-Based Payments to Nonemployees”. The amendments to ASU 2018 - 07 are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than a company’s adoption date of ASU No. 2014-09, (Topic 606), “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”. The Company is currently evaluating ASU 2018-07 and its impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements or disclosures.


In August 2018, the SEC adopted the final rule under SEC Release No. 33-10532, Disclosure Update and Simplification , amending certain disclosure requirements that were redundant, duplicative, overlapping, outdated or superseded. In addition,



26



the amendments expanded the disclosure requirements on the analysis of stockholders' equity for interim financial statements. Under the amendments, an analysis of changes in each caption of stockholders' equity presented in the balance sheet must be provided in a note or separate statement. The analysis should present a reconciliation of the beginning balance to the ending balance of each period for which a statement of comprehensive income is required to be filed. This final rule is effective on November 5, 2018. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of the final rule on its consolidated financial statements.


In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, “Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment,” which removes Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test and replaces the qualitative assessment. Impairment will be measured using the difference between the carrying amount and the fair value of the reporting unit. Under this revised guidance, failing Step 1 will always result in a goodwill impairment. The amendments in this update should be applied prospectively for annual and interim periods in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted for goodwill impairment tests with measurement dates after January 1, 2017. The Company is evaluating the effect the implementation will have on its consolidated financial statements.


In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases,” which changes lessee accounting to reflect the financial liability and right-of-use assets that are inherent to leasing an asset on the balance sheet. The standard requires a modified retrospective approach, with restatement of the prior periods presented in the year of adoption, subject to any FASB modifications. This standard will be effective for the first annual reporting period beginning after December 15, 2018. We anticipate adopting this standard on January 1, 2019. In evaluating the effect that ASU No. 2016-02 will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures, we believe the impact will be minimal to our ongoing consolidated statements of operations.


The Company has reviewed all other FASB-issued ASU accounting pronouncements and interpretations thereof that have effective dates during the period reported and in future periods.  The Company has carefully considered the new pronouncements that alter previous GAAP and does not believe that any new or modified principles will have a material impact on the Company’s reported financial position or operations in the near term.  The applicability of any standard is subject to the formal review of the Company’s financial management and certain standards are under consideration.


NOTE 2 – NOTES RECEIVABLE


On June 23, 2010, the Company, along with David B. Beck, the Company's Director of Engineering, filed a complaint against R&D Products, LLC, Persimmon Investments, Inc. and Jules A. deGreef, the managing member of R&D Products, LLC. The complaint alleged that all of the intellectual properties owned by R&D Products and Mr. deGreef, specifically patented

applications using Bend Sensor ® technology that were filed jointly by Mr. Beck and Mr. deGreef, and later assigned solely to Mr. deGreef and R&D Products, are the property of the Company. The assignment by Mr. Beck of his rights in the patents and intellectual properties were improperly given and are the property of the Company. The Company believed that since Mr. Beck was an employee of the Company during the time that he became the primary creative force and inventor of the Bend Sensor ® applications for R&D Products and Mr. deGreef, and the inventions and applications were created using Flexpoint resources, the Company claimed that such intellectual properties, patents, etc. filed by deGreef, Persimmon and R&D belong to Flexpoint and therefore has sought financial damages and ownership of all intellectual rights, patents and inventions created by Mr. Beck for deGreef, Persimmon and R&D Products.  


On April 9, 2013, the parties of the above referenced litigation reached a favorable universal settlement agreement that reinforces the Company's rights to the intellectual properties and their related products, including the medical bed. In order to secure the Company had exclusive rights to all patents and intellectual properties associated with this litigation the Company advanced to Mr. deGreef $25,000 to bring current all of the filing and maintenance fees for the patents detailed in the law suit. The advance is secured by a promissory note with an annual interest rate of 10% to be paid no later than December 31, 2015.  During 2016 the Company established an allowance of $31,813 for the note receivable from Mr. deGreef.


On April 1, 2015, the Company paid $51,157 for the assumption and assignment of a convertible promissory note receivable issued by Bend Tech, LLC (“Bend Tech”; one of the Company’s customers – see also Note 1, Concentrations and Credit Risk ) and held by a third-party Bend Tech investor (“the Investor”).  The note bears interest at the rate of 10% per annum and had a maturity date of April 1, 2015.  The agreement allows the holder, at its option, to convert the note to a 5% ownership of Bend Tech.  The Company elected to take assignment of those conversion rights, reaching an agreement with the Investor to pay the principle and interest to the Investor at the due date.  Bend Tech is expected to become a more significant customer of the Company as it begins its product introductions, and the Company elected to pay off the note and put itself in position to either receive the payment plus interest or   convert the note into ownership of Bend Tech rather than have an outside investor make such conversion.  As of the date of this report, the note is in default and the Company has not exercised its conversion option.

The Company has recorded a bad debt expense charge for the full amount of the note.  During 2016 the Company established an allowance of $54,993 for the note receivable from Bend Tech LLC.

During the year ended 2017 and 2018, the Company issued convertible promissory notes which are convertible into common stock. Due to the Company’s lack of authorized shares necessary to settle all convertible instruments,  in accordance with ASC 815-40-25, the Company determined that the conversion features related to these notes are derivative instruments since we do not have control to increase the number of authorized shares to settle all convertible instruments The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments requires that the Company record the fair value of the derivatives as of the inception date of debenture and to fair value as of each subsequent reporting date.

 

At December 31, 2018, the Company marked to market the fair value of the derivatives and determined a fair value of $284,857. The Company recorded a gain from change in fair value of derivatives of $171,227 for the year ended December 31, 2018. The fair value of the embedded derivatives was determined using binomial lattice model based on the following assumptions: (1) dividend yield of 0%, (2) expected volatility of 84.67% to 157.94%, (3) weighted average risk-free interest rate of 1.76% to 2.63%, (4) expected life of 0.21 to 1.00 years, and (5) the quoted market price of the Company’s common stock at each valuation date.

 

In accordance ASC 815-40, the Company has implemented a sequencing policy with respect to all outstanding convertible instruments. The Company evaluates its contracts based upon earliest issuance date.

  

Liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis are summarized for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 as follows:

Patent amortization was $6,349 and $12,508 for the year ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Amortization related to proprietary technology was $25,661 and $37,205 for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017.  Patent and proprietary technology amortization is charged to operations.  


Estimated aggregate amortization expense for each of the next three years is $16,285 in 2019, at which time the patents will be fully amortized.


Goodwill – Goodwill represents the excess of the Company’s reorganization value over the fair value of net assets of the Company upon emergence from bankruptcy. Goodwill is not amortized, but is tested for impairment annually, or when a triggering event occurs. As described in ASU 2010-28, ASU 2011-08 and ASC 350-20-35, the Company has adopted the two step goodwill impairment analysis that includes quantitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the two–step goodwill impairment test. A fair-value-based test is applied at the overall Company level. The test compares the estimated fair value of the Company at the date of the analysis to the carrying value of its net assets. The analysis also requires various judgments and estimates, including general and macroeconomic conditions, industry and the Company’s targeted market conditions, as well as relevant entity-specific events; such as a change in the market for the Company’s products and services. After considering the qualitative factors that would indicate a need for interim impairment of goodwill and applying the two-step process described in ASC 350-20-35, paragraphs 4-13, management has determined that the fair value of the reporting unit is not less than the carrying value of the Company including goodwill, and that no impairment charge needs be recognized during the reporting periods.


Upon emerging from bankruptcy protection in 2004, the Company engaged Houlihan Valuation Advisors, an independent valuation firm, to assess the fair value of the Company’s goodwill, patents and other proprietary technology at the date of

emergence.  The appraisal was completed during 2005.  The Company continues to evaluate the fair value of its intangible assets using similar methods as those used by the valuation firm.


NOTE 6 INCOME TAXES


There was no provision for, or benefit from, income tax during the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 respectively.  The components of the net deferred tax asset as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, including temporary differences and operating loss carry forwards that arose prior to reorganization from bankruptcy, are as follows:

Federal and state net operating loss carry forwards at December 31, 2018 and 2017 were $23,185,028 and $23,626,845, respectively. A portion of the net operating loss carry forwards includes losses incurred prior to February 24, 2004, when a change of greater than 50% in ownership of the Company occurred. As a result of the change of ownership, only a portion of the net operating loss carry forwards incurred prior to the change becomes available each year. The net operating loss carry forwards begin to expire in 2020.


The Company has evaluated Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 regarding the impact of the decreased tax rates of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act.  The schedules below reflect the Federal tax provision, deferred tax asset and valuation allowance using the new rates adjusted in the period of enactment.

Provision for Income Taxes

$                         -- 


Under FASB ASC 740-10-05-6, tax benefits are recognized only for the tax positions that are more likely than not be sustained upon examination by tax authorities. The amount recognized is measured as the largest amount of benefit that is greater than 50 percent likely to be realized upon ultimate settlement. Unrecognized tax benefits are tax benefits claimed in the company's tax return that do not meet these recognition and measurement standards.


The Company's policy is to recognize potential interest and penalties accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits with the income tax expense. For the years ended December 31, 2018, and 2017, the Company did not recognized any interest or penalties in its Statement of Operations, nor did it have any interest or penalties accrued in its Balance sheet at December 31, 2018 and 2017 relating to unrecognized benefits.


The tax years 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015 remain open to examination for federal income tax purposes and by other major taxing jurisdictions to which the Company is subject.

On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act pf 2017 (the “Act”) was signed into law making significant changes to the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”).  The Act reduces the federal corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% effective for tax years beginning after December 31, 2017.  ASC 470 requires the Company to re-measure the existing net deferred tax asset in the period of enactment.  The Act also provides for immediate expensing of 100% or the costs of qualified property that is incurred and placed in service during the period from September 27, 2017 to December 31, 2022.  Beginning January 1, 2023, the immediate expensing provision is phased down by 20% per year until it is completely phased out as of January 1, 2027.  Additionally, effective January 1, 2018, the Act imposes possible limitations on the deductibility of interest expense.  As a result of the provisions of the Act, the Company’s deduction for interest expense could be limited in future years.  The effects of other provisions of the Act are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.


On December 22, 2017, the SEC staff issued Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 (“SAB 118”) to provide guidance on accounting for the tax effects of the Act.  SAB 118 provides a measurement period that begins in the reporting period that includes the Act’s enactment date and ends when an entity has obtained, prepared and analyzed the information that was needed in order to complete the accounting requirements under ASC 720.  However, in no circumstance should the measurement period extend beyond one year from the enactment date.  In accordance with SAB 118, a company must reflect in its financial statements the income tax effects of those aspects of the Act for which the accounting under ASC 740 is complete.  SAB 118 provides that to the extent that a company’s accounting for certain income tax effects of the Tax Act is incomplete but it is able to determine a reasonable estimate, it must record a provisional estimate in the financial statements.  


The Company does not reflect a deferred tax asset in its financial statements, but includes that calculation and valuation in its footnotes.  We are still analyzing the impact of certain provisions of the Act and refining our calculations.  The Company will disclose any change in the estimates as it refines the accounting for the impact of the Act.


NOTE 7 – CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE


Convertible Notes Payable – Third Parties


At January 1, 2017 there were convertible notes outstanding with balances of $684,660, $123,797 and $160,000 with accrued interest of $3,001, $1,926 and $0, respectively.  The first two notes bear interest at the rate of 10% per year (with a 15% default rate) and are convertible into shares of common stock at $0.05 per share.  The third note bears interest at the rate of 10% per year (with a 10% default rate) and is convertible into shares of common stock at $0.07 per share.


During 2017 the Company secured additional financing to cover its ongoing operations in the amount of  $380,000 by issuing various convertible notes bearing 10% annual interest (with a 15% default rate), secured by business assets and carrying exercise prices of $0.07 per share.  


During 2017 the Company approved the conversion of the convertible note in the amount of $684,660 of principal and accrued interest of $127,939 into 14.5 million shares of common stock.


During 2018 the Company secured additional financing to cover its ongoing operations in the amount of  $250,000 by issuing various convertible notes bearing 10% annual interest (with a 15% default rate), secured by business assets and carrying exercise prices of $0.06 per share.  


At December 31, 2018 there are notes outstanding with principal balances which total $1,090,000. Of the notes, $640,000 are convertible notes bearing a 10% annual rate of interest (with a 15% default rate) and are convertible into shares of common stock at the rate of $0.07 per share and $450,000 are convertible notes bearing 10% annual interest (with a 15% default rate) and are convertible into shares of common stock at the rate of $0.06 per share.  


The remaining $40,000 is a convertible note entered into on August 8, 2011 with a former Company Director.  That note was due on December 31, 2015, and bears a default interest rate of 10% and is convertible at $0.20 per share.  


The Company recorded interest expense of $136,795 related to these notes during the year ended December 31, 2018.


Convertible Note Payable Related Parties


On July 12, 2017 and September 1, 2017, the Company issued promissory notes for $40,000 and $5,000, respectively, to an officer of the Company.  The notes bear interest at the rate of 8%, have a conversion feature for restricted common shares at $0.07 per share and maturity dates of December 31, 2018.




31



On July 12, 2017 two officers assumed responsibility for $54,513 of debt owed by the Company.  The officers are making payments against those debts until such time that the Company is able to make the payments on its own behalf.


On July 12, 2017, an officer of the Company provided $7,000 to the Company under a line of credit.  On September 23, 2017, the Company paid $7,000 to fully retire that obligation.


On April 2, 2018 and August 28, 2018, the Company issued promissory notes for $40,000 and $65,000 to officers of the Company.  The notes bear interest at the rate of 8%, have a conversion feature for restricted common stock at $0.06 per share and maturity dates of December 31, 2019.


At December 31, 2018 the Convertible Notes Payable Related Parties principal was $179,514.  The Company recorded interest expense of $12,942 during the year ended December 31, 2018 related to these notes.

 

Due to the Company’s lack of authorized shares necessary to settle these convertible instruments, in accordance with ASC 815-40-25, the Company determined that the conversion features related to these notes are derivative instruments since we do not have control to increase the number of authorized shares to settle these convertible instruments. The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments requires that the Company record fair value of the derivatives as of the inception date of the Notes and to fair value as of each subsequent reporting date. At December 31, 2018 the Company determined the fair value of the derivatives to be $284,857.


NOTE 8 CAPITAL STOCK


Preferred Stock – There are 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock with a par value of $0.001 per share authorized.  At December 31, 2018 and 2017, there were no shares of preferred stock issued or outstanding.


Common Stock – There are 100,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.001 per share authorized. During the year ended December 31, 2018, there were no shares of common stock issued.  During the year ended December 31, 2017, there were 14,500,000 shares of common stock issued.  


On November 7, 2017, the Board of Directors approved the conversion of $150,000 in convertible notes held by Liberty Partners, LLC, plus $26,769 in interest accrued and unpaid, to 3,500,000 shares of restricted common stock at an average conversion price of approximately $0.05 per share.  On November 7, 2017, the Board of Directors approved the conversion of $160,000 in convertible notes held by Compass Equity Partners, LLC, plus $40,000 in interest accrued and unpaid, to 4,000,000 shares of restricted common stock at an average conversion price of approximately $0.05 per share.  On November 7, 2017, the Board of Directors approved the conversion of $160,000 in convertible notes held by Maestro Investments LLC, plus $35,370 in interest accrued and unpaid, to 3,900,000 shares of restricted common stock at an average conversion price of approximately $0.05 per share.  On November 7, 2017, the Board of Directors approved the conversion of $130,000 in convertible notes held by Compass Equity Partners  LLC, plus $25,800 in interest accrued and unpaid, to 3,100,000 shares of restricted common stock at an average conversion price of approximately $0.05 per share.


NOTE 9 STOCK OPTION PLANS


On August 25, 2005, the Board of Directors of the Company approved and adopted the 2005 Stock Incentive Plan (the Plan). The Plan became effective upon its adoption by the Board and continued in effect for ten years, terminating on August 25,, 2015.  This plan was approved by the stockholders of the Company at their annual meeting of shareholders on November 22, 2005. Under the Plan, the exercise price for all options issued will not be less than the average quoted closing market price of the Company’s trading common stock for the thirty day period immediately preceding the grant date plus a premium of ten percent.  The maximum aggregate number of shares that may be awarded under the plan is 2,500,000 shares.   The Company continues to utilize the Black-Scholes option-pricing model for calculating the fair value of the options granted as defined by ASC Topic 718, which is an acceptable valuation approach under ASC 718. This model requires the input of subjective assumptions, including the expected price volatility of the underlying stock.


On August 24, 2015, the Board of Directors approved the issuance of options to purchase 2,185,000 shares of the Company’s common stock.  Of the total issued, 1,960,000 options were issued to replace options held by directors and employees which were to expire and 225,000 options were issued to new employees.  Of the options issued, 640,000 have an option price of $0.14 per share, 500,000 have an option price of $0.15 per share, 995,000 have an option price of $0.20 per share, and 50,000 have an option price of $0.25 per share.  Options issued as replacement shall have immediate vesting terms. Options which are not replacements shall vest over a two year four month period in equal installments on the last day of 2015, 2016 and 2017, respectively.  




32



Projected data related to the expected volatility and expected life of stock options is based upon historical and other information, and notably, the Company's common stock has limited trading history. Changes in these subjective assumptions can materially affect the fair value of the estimate, and therefore, the existing valuation models do not provide a precise measure of the fair value of the Company's employee stock options.


Between August 25, 2005 and August 25, 2015, the Company granted options to employees to purchase an aggregate 3,096,000 shares of common stock at exercise prices ranging from $0.15 to $2.07 per share.  The options all vested by December 31, 2017 and expire 10 years from the date of grant.  


As of the years ended December 31, 2005 through 2017, the Company recognized a total of $2,443,768 of stock-based compensation expense, which includes charges of $0 in 2018 and $19,943 in 2017, leaving $0 and $0 in unrecognized expense as of December 31, 2018. There were 2,185,000 and 2,185,000 employee stock options outstanding at December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

ITEM 9.  CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING

AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE


We have not had a change in or disagreement with accountants on accounting financial disclosure during the past two fiscal years.


ITEM 9A.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES


As of the end of the period covered by this Annual Report we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer, who also acts as our Principal Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures.  Our controls and procedures are designed to allow information required to be disclosed in our reports to be recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the specified periods, and accumulated and communicated to management to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure of material information. Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives.  Based upon the evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer has concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective at that reasonable assurance level as of the end of the period December 31, 2018.  


Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting.  Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act).  Our internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The policies and procedures include:


maintenance of records are in reasonable detail to accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of assets,

provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors, and

provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements.


Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives.


Our Chief Executive Officer evaluated the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of the end of the period December 31, 2018.  In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) in Internal Control – Integrated Framework - 2013.  Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer concluded that as of the end of the fiscal year December 31, 2018, our internal control over financial reporting was not effective at that reasonable assurance level.


The material weaknesses relate to the limited number of persons responsible for the recording and reporting of financial information, the lack of separation of financial reporting duties, and the limited size of our management team in general. We are in the process of evaluating methods of improving our internal control over financial reporting, including the possible addition of financial reporting staff and the increased separation of financial reporting responsibility, and intend to implement such steps as are necessary and possible to correct these material weaknesses


Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting. There have been no changes in internal control over financial reporting during the fourth quarter of 2018 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.

AUDIT COMMITTEE


Our audit committee consists of our Board of Directors. Our audit committee has a charter and management believes Mr. Mower qualifies as an audit committee financial expert because of his extensive experience in finance. Based upon the definition of independent director under NASDAQ Stock Market Rule 5605(a) (2), Mr. Mower is not independent of management.


OTHER COMMITTEES


We do not have a standing nominating committee for directors or a compensation committee. Our entire board of directors, including Messrs. Mower and Sindt, act as our nominating and compensation committee.

COMPLIANCE WITH SECTION 16(a) OF THE EXCHANGE ACT


Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires our directors, executive officers and persons who own more than five percent of a registered class of our equity securities to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership of our common stock.  Officers, directors and ten-percent or more beneficial owners of our common stock are required by SEC regulations to furnish Flexpoint Sensor with copies of all Section 16(a) reports they file and provide written representation that no Form 5 is required.  We believe no forms were required to be filed during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.



ITEM 11.  EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION


COMPENSATION DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS


Compensation Objectives -- Our compensation philosophy is to align executive compensation with the interests of stockholders, attract, retain and motivate a highly competent team of executives, and link pay to performance.


Base Salary -- Base salaries for our executives depend on the scope of their responsibilities and their performance. Base salary is designed to compensate the executives for services rendered during the year. These salaries are compared to amounts paid to the executive’s peers outside our Company.  As we have not yet established a Compensation Committee, salary levels are typically reviewed annually by the Board of Directors performance review process, with increases based on the assessment of the performance of the executive.


Long-term Compensation -- The Board of Directors determined that long-term incentive compensation would be in the form of stock options granted.  We have a stock option plan and implemented which has been approved by the shareholders to provide long-term compensation to directors and employees of the company.


Perquisites - The only material perquisite provided to our executive officers is reimbursement for use of a personal automobile while engaged on company business.


Retirement Benefits - We have no retirement benefits currently in place.  It is the intent of the company to add such benefits at a future date.


Employee agreements - We have not entered into employment contracts with our executive officers and their compensation is determined at the discretion of our board of directors.


Termination and Change of Control Payments -- The Company does not currently have employment agreements with its executive officers and there are no agreements providing for severance should a change of control take place

2005 Stock Incentive Plan


On August 25, 2005, our Board adopted the Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. 2005 Stock Incentive Plan (the “Plan”).  The purposes of the Plan was to attract and retain the best available personnel for positions of substantial responsibility, to provide additional incentive to employees, directors and consultants, and to promote the success of our business.


The Plan became effective upon its adoption by the Board and continued in effect for a term of ten (10) years.  The Plan expired August 25, 2015. The maximum aggregate number of shares of common stock that could be sold under the Plan was 2,500,000 shares. The term of each option and its exercise price was stated in an option agreement; provided that the term does not exceed ten (10) years from the date of grant.  The plan provided that a grant of a stock option to an employee shall have an exercise price of no less than 110% of the fair market value per share on the date of grant.  As a condition of the grant, vesting or exercise of an option granted under the Plan, the participant shall be required to satisfy any applicable federal, state, local or foreign withholding tax obligations that may arise in connection with the grant, vesting or exercise of the option or the issuance of shares.


Pursuant to the Plan, on August 24, 2015, the Board approved the surrender and cancellation of 1,540,000 options granted to five officers and employees and in exchange granted options to purchase 1,960,000 to those individuals.   In addition, the Board granted options to purchase 225,000 shares to two employees.  


BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP


The following table lists the beneficial ownership of our outstanding common stock by our management and each person or group known to us to own beneficially more than 5% of our voting common stock.  Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the SEC and generally includes voting or investment power with respect to securities.  Based on these rules, two or more persons may be deemed to be the beneficial owners of the same securities.  Except as indicated by footnote, the persons named in the table below have sole voting power and investment power with respect to the shares of common stock shown as beneficially owned by them.  The percentage of beneficial ownership is based on 92,863,464 shares of common stock outstanding as of April 1, 2019, plus an aggregate of 1,300,000 shares which the following persons may acquire within 60 days by the exercise of rights, warrants and/or options.
