2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT POLICIES

  

Basis of Presentation and Liquidity

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s most recent Annual Financial Statements filed with the SEC on Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and the results of operations for the interim period presented have been reflected herein. The results of operations for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Notes to the financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosures contained in the audited financial statements for the most recent fiscal period, as reported in the Form 10-K, have been omitted.

 

The Company has incurred losses for the past several years while developing infrastructure and its software platforms. As shown in the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements, the Company incurred net losses of $14,020,002 during the nine months ended June 30, 2019. In response to these conditions and to ensure the Company has sufficient capital for ongoing operations for a minimum of 12 months we have raised additional capital through the sale of debt and equity securities pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-3. (See Note 7 for additional details.) As of June 30, 2019, the Company had working capital of approximately $10,101,314.

Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of CleanSpark, Inc., and its wholly owned operating subsidiaries, CleanSpark, LLC, CleanSpark, II, LLC and CleanSpark Critical Power Systems Inc. All material intercompany transactions have been eliminated upon consolidation of these entities.

 

Use of estimates – The preparation of consolidated 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 reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates include estimates used to review the Company’s goodwill impairment, impairments and estimations of long-lived assets, revenue recognition on percentage of completion type contracts, allowances for uncollectible accounts, and the valuations of non-cash capital stock issuances. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable in the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

Revenue Recognition – Upon adoption of ASC Topic 606, the Company revised its accounting policy on revenue recognition from the policy provided in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in our September 30, 2018 10-K. The revised accounting policy on revenue recognition is provided below.

 

Engineering & Construction Contracts and Service Contracts

 

The company recognizes engineering and construction contract revenue over time, as performance obligations are satisfied, due to the continuous transfer of control to the customer. Engineering and construction contracts are generally accounted for as a single unit of account (a single performance obligation) and are not segmented between types of services. The company recognizes revenue based primarily on contract cost incurred to date compared to total estimated contract cost (an input method). The input method is the most faithful depiction of the company’s performance because it directly measures the value of the services transferred to the customer. Customer-furnished materials, labor and equipment and, in certain cases, subcontractor materials, labor and equipment, are included in revenue and cost of revenue when management believes that the company is acting as a principal rather than as an agent (i.e., the company integrates the materials, labor and equipment into the deliverables promised to the customer). Customer-furnished materials are only included in revenue and cost when the contract includes construction activity and the company has visibility into the amount the customer is paying for the materials or there is a reasonable basis for estimating the amount. The company recognizes revenue, but not profit, on certain uninstalled materials that are not specifically produced, fabricated, or constructed for a project. Revenue on these uninstalled materials is recognized when the cost is incurred (when control is transferred). Changes to total estimated contract cost or losses, if any, are recognized in the period in which they are determined as assessed at the contract level. Pre-contract costs are expensed as incurred unless they are expected to be recovered from the client. Project mobilization costs are generally charged to project costs as incurred when they are an integrated part of the performance obligation being transferred to the client. Customer payments on engineering and construction contracts are typically due within 30 to 45 days of billing, depending on the contract.

 

For service contracts (including maintenance contracts) in which the company has the right to consideration from the customer in an amount that corresponds directly with the value to the customer of the company’s performance completed to date, revenue is recognized when services are performed and contractually billable. Service contracts that include multiple performance obligations are segmented between types of services. For contracts with multiple performance obligations, the company allocates the transaction price to each performance obligation using an estimate of the stand-alone selling price of each distinct service in the contract. Revenue recognized on service contracts that have not been billed to clients is classified as a current asset under contract assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheet. Amounts billed to clients in excess of revenue recognized on service contracts to date are classified as a current liability under contract liabilities. Customer payments on service contracts are typically due within 30 days of billing, depending on the contract.

 

Contract assets represent revenue recognized in excess of amounts billed and include unbilled receivables (typically for cost reimbursable contracts) of $0 and contract work in progress (typically for fixed-price contracts) of $4,282 as of June 30, 2019. Unbilled receivables, which represent an unconditional right to payment subject only to the passage of time, are reclassified to accounts receivable when they are billed under the terms of the contract. Advances that are payments on account of contract assets of $0 and $0 as of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, respectively, have been deducted from contract assets. Contract liabilities represent amounts billed to clients in excess of revenue recognized to date. The Company recorded $0 and $0 in contract liabilities as of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, respectively.

 

Revenues from Sale of Equipment

 

Performance Obligations Satisfied at a point in time.

 

We recognize revenue on agreements for non-customized equipment we sell on a standardized basis to the market at a point in time. We recognize revenue at the point in time that the customer obtains control of the good, which is generally no earlier than when the customer has physical possession of the product. We use proof of delivery for certain large equipment with more complex logistics, whereas the delivery of other equipment is estimated based on historical averages of in-transit periods (i.e., time between shipment and delivery).

 

  F- 6  

 

In situations where arrangements include customer acceptance provisions based on seller or customer-specified objective criteria, we recognize revenue when we have concluded that the customer has control of the goods and that acceptance is likely to occur. We generally do not provide for anticipated losses on point in time transactions prior to transferring control of the equipment to the customer.

 

Our billing terms for these point in time equipment contracts vary and generally coincide with delivery to the customer; however, within certain businesses, we receive progress payments from customers for large equipment purchases, which is generally to reserve production slots with our manufacturing partners, which are recorded as liabilities. The Company recorded $428,042 and $0 in contract liabilities as of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, respectively.

 

Service Performance obligations satisfied over time.

 

We enter into long-term product service agreements with our customers primarily within our microgrid segment. These agreements require us to provide preventative maintenance, and standby support services that include certain levels of assurance regarding system performance throughout the contract periods, these contracts will generally range from 5 to 10 years. We account for items that are integral to the maintenance of the equipment as part of our service related performance obligation, unless the customer has a substantive right to make a separate purchasing decision (e.g., equipment upgrade). Contract modifications that extend or revise contract terms are not uncommon and generally result in our recognizing the impact of the revised terms prospectively over the remaining life of the modified contract (i.e., effectively like a new contract). Revenues are recognized for these arrangements on a straight line basis consistent with the nature, timing and extent of our services, which primarily relate to routine maintenance and as needed product repairs. Our billing terms for these contracts vary, but we generally invoice periodically as services are provided.

 

Variable Consideration

 

The nature of the company’s contracts gives rise to several types of variable consideration, including claims and unpriced change orders; awards and incentive fees; and liquidated damages and penalties. The company recognizes revenue for variable consideration when it is probable that a significant reversal in the amount of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur. The company estimates the amount of revenue to be recognized on variable consideration using the expected value (i.e., the sum of a probability-weighted amount) or the most likely amount method, whichever is expected to better predict the amount. Factors considered in determining whether revenue associated with claims (including change orders in dispute and unapproved change orders in regard to both scope and price) should be recognized include the following: (a) the contract or other evidence provides a legal basis for the claim, (b) additional costs were caused by circumstances that were unforeseen at the contract date and not the result of deficiencies in the company’s performance, (c) claim-related costs are identifiable and considered reasonable in view of the work performed, and (d) evidence supporting the claim is objective and verifiable. If the requirements for recognizing revenue for claims or unapproved change orders are met, revenue is recorded only when the costs associated with the claims or unapproved change orders have been incurred. Back charges to suppliers or subcontractors are recognized as a reduction of cost when it is determined that recovery of such cost is probable and the amounts can be reliably estimated. Disputed back charges are recognized when the same requirements described above for claims accounting have been satisfied.

 

The company generally provides limited warranties for work performed under its engineering and construction contracts. The warranty periods typically extend for a limited duration following substantial completion of the company’s work on a project. Historically, warranty claims have not resulted in material costs incurred.

 

Practical Expedients

 

If the company has a right to consideration from a customer in an amount that corresponds directly with the value of the company’s performance completed to date (a service contract in which the company bills a fixed amount for each hour of service provided), the company recognizes revenue in the amount to which it has a right to invoice for services performed.

 

The company does not adjust the contract price for the effects of a significant financing component if the company expects, at contract inception, that the period between when the company transfers a service to a customer and when the customer pays for that service will be one year or less.

 

The company has made an accounting policy election to exclude from the measurement of the transaction price all taxes assessed by governmental authorities that are collected by the company from its customers (use taxes, value added taxes, some excise taxes).

 

For the nine months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company reported revenues of $2,209,542 and $466,931, respectively.

 

Retention receivable is the amount withheld by a customer until a contract is completed. Retention receivables of $42,422 and $17,751 were included in the balance of trade accounts receivable as of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, respectively.

 

Cash and cash equivalents – For purposes of the statements of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid investments and short-term debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents. There was $8,016,078 and $412,777 in cash and no cash equivalents as of June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, respectively.

 

  F- 7  

 

Concentration Risk

At times throughout the year, the Company may maintain cash balances in certain bank accounts in excess of FDIC limits. As of June 30, 2019, the cash balance in excess of the FDIC limits was $7,766,078. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and believes it is not exposed to any significant credit risk in these accounts. The Company had certain customers whose revenue individually represented 10% or more of the Company’s total revenue. (See Note 14 for details.)

 

Stock-based compensation – The Company follows the guidelines in FASB Codification Topic ASC 718-10 “ Compensation-Stock Compensation, ” which requires companies to measure the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of an equity instrument based on the grant-date fair value of the award. Stock-based compensation expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period. The Company accounts for non-employee share-based awards in accordance with FASB ASC 505-50 under which the awards are valued at the earlier of a commitment date or upon completion of the services, based on the fair value of the equity instruments, and are recognized as expense over the service period. The Company may issue compensatory shares for services including, but not limited to, executive, management, accounting, operations, corporate communication, financial and administrative consulting services.

 

Earnings (loss) per share – The Company reports earnings (loss) per share in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 260-10 “ Earnings Per Share, ” which provides for calculation of “basic” and “diluted” earnings per share. Basic earnings per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing net income or loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average common shares outstanding the period. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings of an entity. The calculation of diluted net loss per share gives effect to common stock equivalents; however, potential common shares are excluded if their effect is anti-dilutive. As of June 30, 2019, there are 38,921,055 shares issuable upon exercise of outstanding options, warrants and convertible debt which have been excluded as anti-dilutive.

 

Fair Value of financial instruments –The carrying value of cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses, and debt (See Notes 6 & 7) approximate their fair values because of the short-term nature of these instruments. Management believes the Company is not exposed to significant interest or credit risks arising from these financial instruments. The carrying amount of the Company’s long-term convertible debt is also stated at fair value of $12,500,000 since the stated rate of interest approximates market rates.

 

Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The Company utilizes a fair value hierarchy based on three levels of inputs, of which the first two are considered observable and the last unobservable.

 

Level 1 Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. These are typically obtained from real-time quotes for transactions in active exchange markets involving identical assets.
Level 2 Quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets; quoted prices included for identical or similar assets and liabilities that are not active; and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets. These are typically obtained from readily-available pricing sources for comparable instruments.
Level 3 Unobservable inputs, where there is little or no market activity for the asset or liability. These inputs reflect the reporting entity’s own beliefs about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, based on the best information available in the circumstances.

 

 

Reclassifications – Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified for consistency with the current year presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the reported results of operations or net assets of the Company.

 

Recently issued accounting pronouncements

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, "Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting," which modifies the accounting for share-based payment awards issued to nonemployees to largely align it with the accounting for share-based payment awards issued to employees. ASU 2018-07 is effective for us for annual periods beginning October 1, 2019. We are evaluating the potential impact to our financial position or results of operations.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15, "Intangibles-Goodwill and Other-Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract," which allows for the capitalization of certain implementation costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract. ASU 2018-15 allows for either retrospective adoption or prospective adoption to all implementation costs incurred after the date of adoption. ASU 2018-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. We are currently evaluating the impact the adoption of this new standard will have on our financial position and results of operations.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases” (“ASC 842”). The guidance requires lessees to recognize almost all leases on their balance sheet as a right-of-use asset and a lease liability. For income statement purposes, the FASB retained a dual model, requiring leases to be classified as either operating or finance. Lessor accounting is similar to the current model, but updated to align with certain changes to the lessee model and the new revenue recognition standard. Existing sale-leaseback guidance, including guidance for real estate, is replaced with a new model applicable to both lessees and lessors. ASC 842 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. We are currently evaluating the impact the adoption of this new standard will have on our financial position and results of operations.

 

The Company has evaluated all other recent accounting pronouncements, and believes that none of them will have a material effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

3. ACQUISITION OF PIONEER CRITICAL POWER, INC. AND RELATED ASSETS

  

On January 22, 2019, CleanSpark entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Pioneer Critical Power, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Pioneer”), and CleanSpark Acquisition, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of CleanSpark (“Merger Sub”).

 

The Merger Agreement provides that, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with Pioneer surviving the Merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of CleanSpark. At the effective time of the Merger, the issued and outstanding common shares of Pioneer were automatically converted into the right to receive: (i) 1,750,000 of the common stock of CleanSpark, (ii) a five-year warrant to purchase 500,000 shares of CleanSpark common stock at an exercise price of $1.60 per share, and (iii) a five-year warrant to purchase 500,000 shares of CleanSpark common stock at an exercise price of $2.00 per share. The Merger closed on January 22, 2019 with the filing of a Certificate of Merger in Delaware.

 

The Company accounted for the acquisition of Pioneer as an asset acquisition under ASC 805, because the assets acquired did not meet the definition of a business under ASC 805-10-55-4 as it lacked a substantive process at the time of acquisition.

 

The Company determined the fair value of the consideration in accordance with ASC 820 as follows:

 

Consideration   Fair Value
1,750,000 shares of common stock   $ 3,867,500
500,000 warrants @$1.60     1,102,417
500,000 warrants @$2.00     1,102,107
Total Consideration   $ 6,072,024

 

The Company allocated the purchase price to the identifiable assets as follows:

 

Purchase Price Allocation    
Engineering designs   $ 250,000  
UL files     100,000  
Customer list & non-compete agreement     5,722,024  
    $ 6,072,024  

 

On February 1, 2019, Pioneer Critical Power, Inc. was renamed CleanSpark Critical Power Systems, Inc.

 

Support Agreements

 

As a condition to the Merger Agreement, on January 22, 2019, CleanSpark and Pioneer Power Solutions, Inc. (“Pioneer Power”), a Delaware corporation and sole shareholder of Pioneer prior to the Merger, entered into a Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Agreement whereby Pioneer Power agreed, among other things, to not compete with the Company or solicit employees or customers of the Company for a period of four years.

 

As another condition to the Merger Agreement, on January 22, 2019, CleanSpark, the Company and Pioneer Power entered into an Indemnity Agreement, whereby Pioneer Power agreed to indemnify CleanSpark for any claims made by Myers Power Products, Inc. in the case titled Myers Power Products, Inc. v. Pioneer Power Solutions, Inc., Pioneer Custom Electrical Products, Corp., et al ., Los Angeles County Superior Court Case No. BC606546 (“Myers Power Case”) as they may relate to Pioneer or CleanSpark post-closing of the Merger Agreement.

 

Finally, as another condition to the Merger Agreement, on January 22, 2019, CleanSpark and Pioneer Power entered into a Contract Manufacturing Agreement, whereby Pioneer Power shall exclusively manufacture parallel switchgears, automatic transfer switches and related control and circuit protective equipment for CleanSpark for a period of eighteen months. The agreement did not create exclusivity for Pioneer and CleanSpark may have other providers perform contract manufacturing services, as desired.

Company Overview

 

We are in the business of providing advanced energy software and control technology that enables a plug-and-play enterprise solution to modern energy challenges. Our services consist of intelligent energy monitoring and controls, microgrid design and engineering, microgrid consulting services, and turn-key microgrid implementation services. Our software allows energy users to obtain resiliency and economic optimization. Our software is uniquely capable of enabling a microgrid to be scaled to the user's specific needs and can be widely implemented across commercial, industrial, military and municipal deployment.

 

We refer to the operations surrounding the above plug-and-play energy solution as our Distributed Energy Management Business (the “DER Business”). The main assets of our DER Business include our propriety software systems (“Systems”) and also our engineering and methodology trade secrets. The Distributed Energy Systems and microgrids that utilize our Systems are capable of providing secure, sustainable energy with significant cost savings for our energy customers. The Systems allow customers to design, engineer, construct and then efficiently manage renewable energy generation, storage and consumption.

 

Integral to our Distributed Energy Business is our mPulse and mVSO software platforms (the “Platforms”). When the Platforms are implemented on a customer’s power system they are able to control the distributed energy resources on site to provide secure, sustainable energy often at significant cost savings for our energy customers. The Platforms allows customers to efficiently manage renewable energy generation, other distributed energy generation technologies including energy generation assets, energy storage assets, and energy consumption assets. By having autonomous control over the distributed facets of energy usage and energy storage, customers are able to reduce their dependency on utilities, thereby keeping energy costs relatively constant over time. The overall aim is to transform energy consumers into energy producers by supplying power that anticipates their routine instead of interrupting it.

As an energy technology company, part of our business model is to assess our technologies, product offerings and business direction and determine whether any strategic acquisitions would benefit us. In line with our focus, on January 22, 2019 we acquired the outstanding capital stock of Pioneer Critical Power, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Pioneer”), which we have since renamed and redomiciled to the State of Nevada and changed the name to CleanSpark Critical Power Systems Inc.

As consideration for the transaction, we issued to its sole shareholder Pioneer Power Solutions, Inc. (“Pioneer Power”) a total of 1,750,000 shares of our common stock, a 5-year warrant to purchase 500,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $1.60 per share and a 5-year warrant to purchase 500,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $2.00 per share.

 

The parties also signed additional agreements in connection with the transaction, as previously disclosed in our SEC filings, mainly requiring Pioneer Power to indemnify us in certain circumstances and restricting Pioneer Power from engaging in a competing business.

 

We also signed a Contract Manufacturing Agreement, whereby Pioneer Power shall exclusively manufacture parallel switchgears, automatic transfer switches and related control and circuit protective equipment for us, for a period of eighteen months.

 

We plan to utilize the new intellectual property we gained from the acquisition and the manufacturing agreement in place to enter into the switchgear equipment sales industry. We acquired executed contracts and purchase orders, which we expect will result in significant gross sales during early 2019, as well as hired personnel to operate this new line of business.

 

As a result of this transaction, the parties terminated a contemplated asset purchase arrangement previously disclosed in our SEC filings.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, "Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting," which modifies the accounting for share-based payment awards issued to nonemployees to largely align it with the accounting for share-based payment awards issued to employees. ASU 2018-07 is effective for us for annual periods beginning October 1, 2019. We are evaluating the potential impact to our financial position or results of operations.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15, "Intangibles-Goodwill and Other-Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract," which allows for the capitalization of certain implementation costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract. ASU 2018-15 allows for either retrospective adoption or prospective adoption to all implementation costs incurred after the date of adoption. ASU 2018-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. We are currently evaluating the impact the adoption of this new standard will have on our financial position and results of operations.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases” (“ASC 842”). The guidance requires lessees to recognize almost all leases on their balance sheet as a right-of-use asset and a lease liability. For income statement purposes, the FASB retained a dual model, requiring leases to be classified as either operating or finance. Lessor accounting is similar to the current model, but updated to align with certain changes to the lessee model and the new revenue recognition standard. Existing sale-leaseback guidance, including guidance for real estate, is replaced with a new model applicable to both lessees and lessors. ASC 842 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. We are currently evaluating the impact the adoption of this new standard will have on our financial position and results of operations.

 

The Company has evaluated all other recent accounting pronouncements, and believes that none of them will have a material effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

In December 2001, the SEC requested that all registrants list their most “critical accounting polices” in the Management Discussion and Analysis. The SEC indicated that a “critical accounting policy” is one which is both important to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and results, and requires management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain.

 

Our accounting policies are discussed in detail in the footnotes to our financial statements included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2018, however we consider our critical accounting policies to be those related to revenue recognition, long-lived assets, accounts receivable, fair value of financial instruments, cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, warranty liability and stock-based compensation.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

A smaller reporting company is not required to provide the information required by this Item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) as of June 30, 2019. This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer. Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of June 30, 2019, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to the presence of material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting.

 

A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Management has identified the following material weaknesses which have caused management to conclude that, as of June 30, 2019, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective: insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both US GAAP and SEC guidelines.

 

Remediation Plan to Address the Material Weaknesses in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our company plans to take steps to enhance and improve the design of our internal controls over financial reporting. During the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q, we have not been able to remediate the material weaknesses identified above. To remediate such weaknesses, we plan to implement the following changes during our fiscal year ending September 30, 2019: adopt sufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the nine months ended June 30, 2019 that have materially affected, or are reasonable likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

We are not aware of any pending legal proceeding to which any of our officers, directors, or any beneficial holders of 5% or more of our voting securities are adverse to us or have a material interest adverse to us.

The occurrence of any of the risks discussed in such filings, or other events that we do not currently anticipate or that we currently deem immaterial, could harm our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations.
