Table of Contents

 

NOTE 1 – BUSINESS SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES AND LIQUIDITY

 

Nature of Business

 

First Foods Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “First Foods”) is a smaller reporting company focused on developing its specialty chocolate product line through its Holy Cacao subsidiary, participating in merchant cash advances (“MCAs”) through its 1st Foods Funding Division, and introducing new health-related brands, concepts and products through its FFGI Wholesaling Division.

 

Holy Cacao is a majority owned subsidiary that is dedicated to producing, packaging, distributing and selling specialty chocolate products, including specialty chocolate products infused with a hemp-based ingredient in accordance with the Company’s understanding of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (the “2014 Farm Bill”) and/or the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (the “2018 Farm Bill,” and together with the 2014 Farm Bill, collectively, the “Farm Bill”), which renders the production of hemp in compliance with the provisions of the Farm Bill federally lawful. The Company has not been, is not, and has no current plans to be involved in producing, packaging, distributing or selling any product that is infused with a marijuana-based ingredient, although it intends to revisit the matter as regulations change in jurisdictions in which it operates.

 

The Company is also dedicated to licensing its intellectual property (“IP”), including its name, brand, and packaging, to third parties. The Company may license its IP to third parties that may produce, package, and distribute hemp-based products pursuant with the Company’s understanding of the Farm Bill. The Company may license its IP to third parties that may produce, package, and distribute marijuana-based products, but only as such licensing is legal. Holy Cacao holds four trademarks for the brands, “The Edibles’ Cult”, “Purely Irresistible”, “Mystere” and “Southeast Edibles”.

 

The Company also has a contract with TIER Merchant Advances LLC (“TIER”) to participate in the purchase of future receivables from qualified TIER merchants for the purpose of generating near-term and long-term revenue for the Company. The Company also provides cash advances directly to merchants.

 

Reclassification

 

Certain reclassifications have been made to the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the period ended December 31, 2020 to conform to the current period’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statement presentation. Approximately $465,500 worth of related party payables were reclassed to its own line item to confirm with current period presentation. There was no effect on total assets, equity and net loss.

 

Liquidity and Going Concern

 

The Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared using generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) applicable to a going concern which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has not yet established an ongoing source of revenues sufficient to cover its operating costs and allow it to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company obtaining adequate capital to fund operating losses until it becomes profitable. If the Company is unable to obtain adequate capital, it could be forced to cease operations.

 

In order to continue as a going concern, the Company will need, among other things, additional capital resources. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had approximately $1,520,000 in third-party short-term debt and approximately $60,000 in associated debt discount and approximately $430,000 in related-party short-term debt and approximately $1,000 in associated debt discount that is due within the next twelve months. Management’s plan is to continue to increase revenue, obtain such resources for the Company by obtaining capital from management and significant shareholders sufficient to meet its operating expenses and seeking equity and/or debt financing. However, neither any members of management nor any significant shareholders are currently committed to invest funds with us and; therefore, we cannot provide any assurances that the Company will be successful in accomplishing any of its plans.

Table of Contents

 

The Company does not have sufficient cash flow for the next twelve months from the date of this report. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to successfully accomplish the plans described in the preceding paragraph and eventually secure other sources of financing and attain profitable operations. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus surfaced (COVID-19). The spread of COVID-19 around the world in 2020 caused significant volatility in U.S. and international markets. There is significant uncertainty around the breadth and duration of business disruptions related to COVID-19, as well as its impact on the U.S. and international economies. The Company’s financial position, operations and cash flows as of September 30, 2021 have been adversely affected, and may be further affected in the future, by the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 which in 2020 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. The ultimate disruption which may be caused by the outbreak is uncertain; however, it may result in a material adverse impact on the Company’s financial position, operations and cash flows. Possible areas that may be materially affected include, but are not limited to, disruption to the Company’s labor workforce, unavailability of products and supplies used in operations, and the decline in value of assets held by the Company. As of September 30, 2021 and through the filing date of the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company has continued to collect receivables from its cash advances but has experienced payment delinquencies. The Company has taken a reserve allowance on its MCA’s. As of September 30, 2021, the Company’s Holy Cacao operations have experienced no disruption in customers and revenue, labor workforce, availability of products and supplies used in operations, and the value of assets held by the Company, including inventories.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements were prepared using generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all information or notes required by generally accepted accounting principles for annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s annual consolidated financial statements included within the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, as filed with the SEC on March 3, 2021.

 

In the opinion of management, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included herein contain all adjustments necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position and the results of its operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented. Such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The results of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 may not be indicative of results for the full year.

 

The noncontrolling interest represents the proportionate share of the proceeds received and also the income and loss pickup from the fifteen-percent sale of equity interest in our 85% owned subsidiary; Holy Cacao.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements represent the consolidation of the accounts of the Company and its subsidiary in conformity with GAAP. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid temporary cash investments with an original maturity of twelve months or less to be cash equivalents. At September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had no cash equivalents.

Table of Contents

 

The Company’s cash is held with financial institutions, and the account balances may exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insurance limit at times. Accounts are insured by the FDIC up to $250,000 per financial institution. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts with these financial institutions.

 

Restricted Cash

 

As of September 30, 2021 restricted cash included $29,421, which was restricted pursuant to the requirements in the sales consultant agreement entered into November 2020 (see note 8).

 

Merchant Cash Advances

 

The Company participates in the merchant cash advance industry by directly advancing sums to a merchant or a merchant advance provider, TIER, who in turn advances sums to merchants or other merchant cash advance providers. Each reporting period, the Company reviews the carrying value of these advances and determines whether an impairment reserve is necessary. At September 30, 2021, the Company reserved an amount equal to 76% of the outstanding merchant cash advance balance at period end based on the potential impact of COVID 19.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company wrote off 4 merchant advances for a total of $5,132. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recovered 7 merchant advances for a total of $7,690. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recovered 25 merchant advances for a total of $28,507. During the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Company wrote off 1 merchant advances for a total of $1,100. During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recovered 3 merchant advances for a total of $4,010.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

We completed, related to our merchant cash advance business line, our assessment of the impact of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606 and determined that we recognize revenue in accordance with ASC 860, Transfers and Servicing, which is explicitly excluded from the scope of ASC 606. We participate in the servicing of merchant cash advances that have been provided to third parties, which in accordance with ASC 860, causes us to recognize merchant cash advance (“MCA”) income. We also have product sales from our Holy Cacao division that follow ASC 606.

 

Product sales are measured based on consideration specified in a contract with a customer that we expect to receive in exchange for goods, net of any variable considerations (e.g. rights to return product, sales incentives, etc.). The Company recognizes revenue when it satisfies a performance obligation by transferring control of a product to a customer. These criteria are assumed to have been met upon delivery of the products requested by the customer to the customer’s carrier. The Company applied the practical expedient available under ASC 606 to disregard determining significant financing components, if the good is transferred and payment is received within one year.

 

When a merchant cash advance is purchased, the Company records a merchant cash advance participation receivable for the purchase price. The purchase price consists of the merchant cash advance principal plus an up-front commission that is amortized over the term of the merchant cash advance. The amount of the commission is negotiated between the Company and TIER for each contract. The standard commission is 15% of the merchant cash advance principal but can be reduced depending upon the credit worthiness of the merchant. The average commission paid by the Company since inception has been approximately 7%. If a merchant cash advance contract is signed in one period, but not paid until a subsequent period, a corresponding liability is established in the current period.

 

At the time the Company participates in a merchant cash advance, the Company records a deferred revenue liability, which is the total future receivable due to the Company less the principal amount of the merchant cash advance. Revenue is recognized and the deferred liability is reduced over the term of the merchant cash advance.

 

TIER maintains a bank account on behalf of the Company. Each day, TIER receives payment, reflected in the bank account, for each merchant cash advance TIER has purchased on behalf of the Company from various merchant cash advance providers. The Company reduces its merchant cash advance balance by the cash received, which is net of platform fees. Platform fees are a daily charge associated with the ACH service and the financial and reporting management software platform provided by TIER. The platform fees are also negotiated between the Company and TIER for each contract but are typically 4% of the daily merchant cash advance principal amount.

For each merchant cash advance entered into by the Company, TIER receives a daily payment as payments are made on the advance, for each merchant cash advance TIER has purchased on behalf of the Company from various merchant cash advance providers. The Company reduces its merchant cash advance balance by the cash received, which is net of a 2% commission to TIER.

 

Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

 

Accounts receivable are carried at original invoice amount less an estimate made for doubtful accounts based on a review of all outstanding amounts. Management determines the allowance for doubtful accounts by regularly evaluating individual customer receivables and considering a customer’s financial condition, credit history and current economic conditions and sets up an allowance for doubtful accounts when collection is uncertain. Customers’ accounts are written off when all attempts to collect have been exhausted. The Company considers an invoice past due once the term of the invoice has passed and payment has not been received. No interest is charged on past due invoices. Recoveries of accounts receivable previously written off are recorded as income when received. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had no allowance for doubtful accounts.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory, consisting of raw materials, work in process and products available for sale, are accounted for using the first-in, first-out method, and are valued at the lower of cost or net realizable value. This valuation requires management to make judgements based on currently available information, about the likely method of disposition, such as through sales to individual customers and returns. The Company has no allowance for inventory reserves.

 

Inventory consisted of the following as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020:

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense when incurred, while renewals and betterments that materially extend the life of an asset are capitalized. When assets are sold, retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the balance sheets and any resulting gain or loss is reflected in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations and members’ deficit in the period realized.

 

Depreciation and amortization are provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which are as follows:

 

Property – Leasehold improvements

 

4 years

 

Equipment

 

5 years

 

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets are comprised of property and equipment. The Company evaluates its long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value of an asset or group of assets may not be recoverable. If these circumstances exist, recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset group to future undiscounted net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset group. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. There were no impairments to long-lived assets for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.

Leases

 

The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at the inception of a contract. Operating lease right-of-use (“ROU”) assets are included in right-of-use assets on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets. The current and long-term components of operating lease liabilities are included in the operating lease liabilities and operating lease liabilities – long term, respectively on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

Operating lease ROU assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the lease term. As most of the Company’s leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company uses an incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at the commencement date in determining the present value of future payments. Certain leases may include options to extend or terminate the lease. Lease expense for minimum lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded in the balance sheet.

 

The company does not include the non-lease components that are associated with the lease and accounts for them outside of the lease in accordance with ASC Topic 842 Leases. The percentage of cost associated with the lease component was 100%.

 

Research and Development

 

The Company’s policy is to engage market and branding consultants to research and develop specialty chocolate products, including chocolate products infused with a hemp-based ingredient, and packaging targeted to particular states within the US. The research and development costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, were approximately $58,000 and $49,000, respectively. The research and development costs for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, were approximately $25,000 and $16,000, respectively. These expenses are included in general and administrative expenses on the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Deferred Financing Costs

 

The Company records origination and other expenses related to its debt obligations as deferred financing costs. These expenses are deferred and amortized over the life of the related debt instrument. In accordance with Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2015-03, deferred finance costs, net of accumulated amortization have been included as a contra to the corresponding loans in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

 

Stock Based Compensation

 

The Company measures and recognizes compensation expense for all stock-based payments at fair value over the requisite service period. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to determine the weighted average fair value of options and warrants. For restricted stock grants, fair value is determined as the closing price of our common stock on the date of grant. Equity-based compensation expense is recorded in administrative expenses based on the classification of the employee or vendor. The determination of fair value of stock-based payment awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model is affected by our stock price, as well as by assumptions regarding a number of subjective variables. These variables include, but are not limited to, the expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, and actual and projected employee stock option exercise behaviors.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company provides for income taxes using the asset and liability approach. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recorded based on the differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities and the tax rates in effect when these differences are expected to reverse. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance if, based on the weight of available evidence, it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had a full valuation allowance against deferred tax assets. With the historical change in ownership, the Company is subject to certain NOL limitations under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Per Share Data

 

In accordance with “ASC-260 - Earnings per Share”, the basic loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted loss per common share is computed similar to basic loss per common share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive. There were no dilutive shares outstanding as of September 30, 2021 and 2020 because their effect would be antidilutive.

 

The Company had 5,848,525 and 4,899,750 warrants to purchase common stock outstanding at September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The Company had 4,470,000 warrants to purchase Series B preferred stock outstanding at September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The Company has outstanding one (1) Series A preferred share that is convertible into five (5) shares of the Company’s common stock. Additionally, the Company has 354,999 Series B preferred shares, and 660,000 Series C preferred shares outstanding that are convertible into 1,774,995 and 660,000 shares of common stock at September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The warrants and preferred stock were not included in the Company’s weighted average number of common shares outstanding because they would be anti-dilutive.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value estimates of financial instruments are made at a specific point in time, based on relevant information about financial markets and specific financial instruments. As these estimates are subjective in nature, involving uncertainties and matters of significant judgment, they cannot be determined with precision. Changes in assumptions can significantly affect estimated fair value. The carrying value of cash, merchant cash advances, accounts receivable, vendor deposits, prepaid expenses, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate their fair value because of the short-term nature of these instruments. Management is of the opinion that the Company is not exposed to significant market or credit risks arising from these financial instruments.

 

Advertising and Promotion

 

Advertising and promotion costs are expensed as incurred. Advertising and promotion costs recognized in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, were approximately $95,600 and $27,600, respectively and for three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, were approximately $43,400 and $6,600, respectively. These expenses are included in general and administrative expenses on the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Non-Controlling Interests in Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASC 810-10-65-1, to clarify that a non-controlling (minority) interest in a subsidiary is an ownership interest in the entity that should be reported as equity in the condensed consolidated financial statements. It also requires consolidated net income to include the amounts attributable to both the parent and non-controlling interest, with disclosure on the face of the unaudited condensed consolidated income statement of the amounts attributed to the parent and to the non-controlling interest. In accordance with ASC 810-10-45-21, those losses attributable to the parent and the non-controlling interest in subsidiaries may exceed their interests in the subsidiary’s equity. The excess and any further losses attributable to the parent and the non-controlling interest shall be attributed to those interests even if that attribution results in a deficit non-controlling interest balance. During the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company entered into a subscription agreement for the sale of a ten-percent equity interest in its then wholly owned subsidiary, Holy Cacao, for $200,000 in cash proceeds, in the aggregate. During the year ended December 31, 2019, 5% equity was issued to a service provider due to the completion of Holy Cacao’s first sale of its product, as per the agreement with the service provider. The Company’s periodic reporting now includes the results of operations of Holy Cacao, with the fifteen-percent ownership reported as non-controlling interests.

The Company conducts business as two operating segments, First Foods and Holy Cacao. The Company does not distinguish between the two segments and has only one reportable segment based on quantitative thresholds. The accounting policies of the segments are the same as the accounting policies of the Company as a whole. The operating results of these business segments are regularly reviewed by the Company’s chief operating decision maker.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the FASB or other standard setting bodies. Unless otherwise discussed, the Company believes that the impact of recently issued standards that are not yet effective will not have a material impact on its consolidated financial position or results of operations upon adoption.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses” to improve information on credit losses for financial assets and net investment in leases that are not accounted for at fair value through net income. ASU 2016-13 replaces the current incurred loss impairment methodology with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses. In April 2019 and May 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-04, “Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses, Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, and Topic 825, Financial Instruments” and ASU No. 2019-05, “Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326): Targeted Transition Relief” which provided additional implementation guidance on the previously issued ASU. In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, “Financial Instruments - Credit Loss (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842),” which defers the effective date for public filers that are considered small reporting companies (“SRC”) as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Since the Company is an SRC, implementation is not needed until January 1, 2023. The Company will continue to evaluate the effect adopting ASU 2016-13 will have on the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

Director Agreements

 

On May 10, 2018, the directors of the Company were awarded share-based compensation for the service period of May 10, 2018 through December 31, 2020, as a one-time award of the ability to purchase a particular amount of warrants, ranging from 80,000 to 400,000 (collectively the “Warrants”) with the following terms:

 

 

Number and Type – Each Director is entitled to a one-time award of Warrants for the number of shares of Series B Preferred Stock of the Company. Each share of Series B Preferred Stock shall have voting rights equal to five (5) votes per share. Each share of Series B Preferred Stock is convertible into five (5) shares of the Company’s Common Stock (the “Common Stock”), including liquidation preference over Common Stock.

 

 

 

 

Duration – The Warrants entitle each Director to purchase the Series B Preferred Stock from the Company, after January 1, 2019 and before December 31, 2027.

 

 

 

 

Purchase Price - The purchase price is $0.60 per share of Series B Preferred Stock.

 

 

 

 

Cashless Exercise - If on the date the Director surrenders all or a portion of the Warrants for the purchase of Series B Preferred Stock or the equivalent number of shares of Common Stock, the per share market value of one share of Common Stock is greater than the exercise price of the equivalent Warrant, in lieu of exercising the Warrant by payment of cash, the Director may exercise the Warrant by a cashless exercise and shall receive a ratably lower number of shares of Series B Preferred Stock or the equivalent number of shares of Common Stock.

 

 

 

 

Vesting - The Warrants are subject to a 32-month period whereby the Warrants vest in equal monthly increments from May 10, 2018 through December 31, 2020. Any unvested warrants are forfeited, if the Director ceases to be a Director.

 

The Company issued warrants with respect to 1,280,000 Series B Preferred Stock, in the aggregate. The Company expensed the fair value of these warrants in the amount of $768,000 ratably during the years ended December 31, 2018, 2019 and 2020. There was no expense related to these warrants for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded $73,143 and $217,839 as compensation expense related to the warrants, respectively.

 

On January 1, 2020, the Company entered into director agreements with each of the Directors of the Company. Pursuant to the agreements, each Director may be compensated with share-based and/or cash-based compensation. The Directors’ compensation for the period January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 was $10,000 per quarter per Director to be paid on a date determined by the Board of Directors. In addition, the Directors were able to receive a one-time award of the ability to purchase a particular amount of warrants, as determined by the Board of Directors. On January 1, 2021, the director agreements were renewed with the same terms. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, a director agreed to waive 118,333 of preferred B shares of stock and $110,000 of accrued director compensation. The company recorded the forgiveness of accrued director compensation as other income. As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 the Company has accrued $330,000 and $320,000, respectively, in relation to the director agreements.

 

On July 7, 2020, our Board of Directors appointed Michael Kaplan to the Board of Directors.

 

Mr. Kaplan’s compensation as a director for the initial twelve months will consist of one million (1,000,000) warrants which will vest at the rate of 83,333 warrants per month for the initial eleven months and the balance in the twelfth month, provided he is a director on each vesting date, with the initial tranche vesting on the day he takes office and then on each monthly anniversary of such date thereafter. Each Warrant will be exercisable for 36 months after it vests and will be exercisable at a price of $0.18 per share. The warrants are valued at $177,200 based on the Black Scholes Model. If he remains in office beyond twelve months, commencing with month thirteen, his compensation will be similar to the majority of the directors then in office. The company is currently in negotiation with Mr. Kaplan regarding his compensation.

NOTE 9 – CONCENTRATION RISKS

 

The Company recognizes the concentration of its merchant cash advances, which could inherently create a potential risk to future working capital in the event that the Company is not able to collect all, or a majority, of the outstanding merchant cash advances. The Company actively mitigates its portfolio concentration risk by monitoring its merchant cash advance provider’s ability to participate in merchant cash advances from alternative providers and spreading merchant cash advance participation across various merchants.

 

As of September 30, 2021, the Company’s receivables from merchant cash advances included $29,971 from one merchant, representing 70% of the Company’s merchant cash advances. The Company earned $2,493 of MCA income from the same merchant, representing 57% of the Company’s MCA income for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The Company earned $14,949 and $6,463 of MCA income from two merchants, representing 41% and 18%, respectively, of the Company’s MCA income for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

 

As of December 31, 2020, the Company’s receivables from merchant cash advances included $59,719 from two merchants ($25,929 and $33,790), representing 49% of the Company’s merchant cash advances. The Company earned $9,919 of MCA income from one merchant, representing 51% of the Company’s MCA income for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The Company earned $92,723 of MCA income from two merchants ($67,100 and $25,623), representing 72% of the Company’s MCA income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

 

As of September 30, 2021, there was no accounts payable concentration other than amounts owed to related parties. As of December 31, 2020, there was no accounts payable concentration other than amounts owed to related parties.

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

 

Cautionary Statements

 

This Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements,” as that term is used in federal securities laws, about First Foods Group, Inc.’s financial condition, results of operations and business.

 

These statements include, among others:

 

·

 

statements concerning the potential benefits that First Foods Group, Inc. (“First Foods”, “we”, “our”, “us”, the “Company”, or “management”) may experience from its business activities and certain transactions it contemplates or has completed; and

 

 

·

statements of First Foods’ expectations, beliefs, future plans and strategies, anticipated developments and other matters that are not historical facts. These statements may be made expressly in this Form 10-Q. You can find many of these statements by looking for words such as “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “opines,” or similar expressions used in this Form 10-Q. These forward-looking statements are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties that may cause First Foods’ actual results to be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by First Foods in those statements. The most important facts that could prevent First Foods from achieving its stated goals include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

 

(a)

volatility or decline of First Foods’ stock price;

 

(b)

potential fluctuation of quarterly results;

 

(c)

failure of First Foods to earn significant revenues or profits;

 

(d)

inadequate capital to continue or expand its business, and inability to raise additional capital or financing to implement its business plans;

 

(e)

decline in demand for First Foods’ products and services;

 

(f)

rapid adverse changes in markets due to, among other things, war, terrorism, weather conditions, environmental factors, pandemic, economic crisis, legislation, etc.;

 

(g)

litigation with or legal claims and allegations by outside parties against First Foods, including but not limited to challenges to First Foods’ intellectual property rights;

 

(h)

reliance on proprietary merchant advance credit models, which involve the use of qualitative factors that are inherently judgmental and which could result in merchant defaults; and

 

(i)

new regulations impacting the business.

 

There is no assurance that First Foods will be profitable, due to, among other potential reasons, that First Foods may not be able to successfully develop, manage or market its products and services, First Foods may not be able to attract or retain qualified executives and personnel, First Foods may not be able to obtain customers for its products or services, additional dilution in outstanding stock ownership may be incurred due to the issuance of more shares, warrants and stock options, or the exercise of outstanding warrants and stock options, and other risks inherent in First Foods’ business.

 

Because the forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. First Foods cautions you not to place undue reliance on the statements, which speak only of management’s plans and expectations as of the date of this Form 10-Q. The cautionary statements contained or referred to in this section should be considered in connection with any subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements that First Foods or persons acting on its behalf may issue. First Foods does not undertake any obligation to review or confirm analysts’ expectations or estimates or to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Form 10-Q, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

General

 

First Foods is currently a “smaller reporting company” under the JOBS Act. A company loses its “smaller reporting company” status on (i) the day its public float becomes greater than or equal to $250,000,000 or (ii) had annual revenues of less than $100,000,000 and either: (A) had no public float or (B) had a public float of less than $700,000,000. As a “smaller reporting company,” First Foods is exempt from certain obligations of the Exchange Act, including those found in Section 14A(a) and (b) related to shareholder approval of executive compensation and golden parachute compensation and Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 related to the requirement that management assess the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control for financial reporting. Furthermore, Section 103 of the JOBS Act provides that as a “smaller reporting company”, First Foods is not required to comply with the requirement to provide an auditor’s attestation of ICFR under Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act for as long as First Foods qualifies as a “smaller reporting company.” However, a “smaller reporting company” is not exempt from the requirement to perform management’s assessment of internal control over financial reporting.

 

First Foods is focused on developing its specialty chocolate product line through its Holy Cacao subsidiary, participating in merchant cash advances (“MCAs”) through its 1st Foods Funding Division, and introducing new health-related brands, concepts and products through its FFGI Wholesaling Division.

 

Holy Cacao is a majority owned subsidiary that is dedicated to producing, packaging, distributing and selling specialty chocolate products, including specialty chocolate products infused with a hemp-based ingredient in accordance with the Company’s understanding of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (the “2014 Farm Bill”) and/or the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (the “2018 Farm Bill,” and together with the 2014 Farm Bill, collectively, the “Farm Bill”), which renders the production of hemp in compliance with the provisions of the Farm Bill federally lawful. The Company has not been, is not, and has no current plans to be involved in producing, packaging, distributing or selling any product that is infused with a marijuana-based ingredient, although it intends to revisit the matter as regulations change in jurisdictions in which it operates.

 

The Company is also dedicated to licensing its intellectual property (“IP”), including its name, brand, and packaging, to third parties. The Company may license its IP to third parties that may produce, package, and distribute hemp-based products pursuant with the Company’s understanding of the Farm Bill. The Company may license its IP to third parties that may produce, package, and distribute marijuana-based products, but only as such licensing is legal. Holy Cacao holds four trademarks for the brands, “The Edibles’ Cult”, “Purely Irresistible”, “Mystere” and “Southeast Edibles”.

 

The Company also has a contract with TIER Merchant Advances LLC (“TIER”) to participate in the purchase of future receivables from qualified TIER merchants for the purpose of generating near-term and long-term revenue for the Company. The Company also provides cash advances directly to merchants.

 

The Company is quoted on the OTCQB under “FIFG.”

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We monitor our estimates on an on-going basis for changes in facts and circumstances, and material changes in these estimates could occur in the future. Changes in estimates are recorded in the period in which they become known. We base our estimates on historical experience and other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from our estimates, if past experience or other assumptions do not turn out to be substantially accurate.

 

Certain of our accounting policies are particularly important to the portrayal and understanding of our financial position and results of operations and require us to apply significant judgment in their application. As a result, these policies are subject to an inherent degree of uncertainty. In applying these policies, we use our judgment in making certain assumptions and estimates. Our critical accounting policies are outlined in Note 1 in the Notes to the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2021 compared to the Three Months Ended September 30, 2020

 

We had $60,049 of revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $31,536 in revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in revenue was driven by an increase in our product sales, primarily from sales in our newly formed wholesale division, partially offset by a decrease of participation in merchant cash advances due to COVID-19.

  

Cost of product sales for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $35,446 compared to $7,838 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in cost of product sales was due to an increase in product sales, primarily from the newly formed wholesale division. Gross margin is lower this period compared to last year due to the type of products being sold.

  

Professional fees for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $2,703 compared to $28,827 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in professional fees was due to lower legal fees incurred because of fewer contractual arrangements.

 

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $466,717 compared to $522,033 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to decreased costs associated with compensation, commissions, advertising and promotion, depreciation, travel, lower fees and commissions for our cash advances and reduced cost for research and development.

 

Provision for merchant cash advances for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $(7,916) compared to $(105,798) for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in provision for merchant cash advances was due to lowering the reserve allowance for our merchant cash advances.

 

Results of Operations for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2021 compared to the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020

 

We had $349,928 of revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $153,221 in revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in revenue was driven by an increase in our product sales, primarily from sales in our newly formed wholesale division, partially offset by a decrease of participation in merchant cash advances due to COVID-19.

  

Cost of product sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $201,530 compared to $13,289 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in cost of product sales was due to an increase in product sales. Gross margin is lower this period compared to last year due to the type of products being sold.

 

Professional fees for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $5,799 compared to $59,154 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in professional fees was due to lower legal fees incurred because of fewer contractual arrangements.

 

General and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $1,400,527 compared to $1,490,095 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to decreased costs associated with stock-based compensation, consulting and accounting fees, lower fees and commissions for our cash advances and travel.

 

Provision for merchant cash advances for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $(152,254) compared to $374,087 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in provision for merchant cash advances was due to lowering the reserve allowance for our merchant cash advances.

Cash Flows

 

Operating Activities

 

Net cash used in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 amounted to $209,006 and net cash used in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 amounted to $54,399. This includes a net loss from operations of approximately $(1,831,394), offset by non-cash expenses of approximately $911,000 related to stock-based compensation, loss on conversion of loan payable, depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash lease expense and reserves for merchant cash advances, and cash provided by the change in net working capital items of approximately $712,000 principally related to the increase in prepaid expenses and other assets, operating lease liabilities, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and merchant cash advances. This resulted in a working capital deficiency of $(3,392,105) at September 30, 2021 and $(2,560,983) at December 31, 2020.

 

Investing Activities

 

Net cash used in investing activities amounted to $877 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and $197,924 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. This was due to more equipment purchased during the nine months ended 2020 vs. the nine months ended 2021.

 

Financing Activities

 

Net cash provided by financing activities amounted to $222,842 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and $304,545 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. This was primarily due to a decrease in proceeds from loans and an increase in repayment of loans 2021 vs 2020, partially offset by the sale of shares of common stock.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared using generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America applicable to a going concern which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.

 

The Company has not yet established an ongoing source of revenues sufficient to cover its operating costs and allow it to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company obtaining adequate capital to fund operating losses until it becomes profitable. If the Company is unable to obtain adequate capital, it could be forced to cease operations.

 

In order to continue as a going concern, the Company will need, among other things, additional capital resources. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had approximately $1,520,000 in third-party short-term debt and approximately $60,000 in associated debt discount and approximately $430,000 in related-party short-term debt and approximately $1,000 in associated debt discount that is due within the next twelve months. . Management’s plan is to  continue to increase revenue, obtain such resources for the Company by obtaining capital from management and significant shareholders sufficient to meet its operating expenses and seeking equity and/or debt financing. However, management cannot provide any assurances that the Company will be successful in accomplishing any of its plans.

  

The Company does not have sufficient cash flow for the next twelve months from the issuance of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to successfully accomplish the plans described in the preceding paragraph and eventually secure other sources of financing and attain profitable operations. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus surfaced (COVID-19). The spread of COVID-19 around the world in 2020 caused significant volatility in U.S. and international markets. There is significant uncertainty around the breadth and duration of business disruptions related to COVID-19, as well as its impact on the U.S. and international economies. The Company’s financial position, operations and cash flows as of September 30, 2021 have been adversely affected, and may be further affected in the future, by the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 which in 2020 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. The ultimate disruption which may be caused by the outbreak is uncertain; however, it may result in a material adverse impact on the Company’s financial position, operations and cash flows. Possible areas that may be materially affected include, but are not limited to, disruption to the Company’s labor workforce, unavailability of products and supplies used in operations, and the decline in value of assets held by the Company. As of September 30, 2021 and through the filing date of the financial statements, the Company has continued to collect receivables from its cash advances but has experienced payment delinquencies. The Company has taken a reserve allowance on its MCA’s. As of September 30, 2021, the Company’s Holy Cacao operations have experienced no disruption in customers and revenue, labor workforce, availability of products and supplies used in operations, and the value of assets held by the Company, including inventories.

Concentration Risks

 

The Company recognizes the concentration of its merchant cash advances, which could inherently create a potential risk to future working capital in the event that the Company is not able to collect all, or a majority, of the outstanding merchant cash advances. The Company actively mitigates its portfolio concentration risk by monitoring its merchant cash advance provider’s ability to participate in merchant cash advances from alternative providers and spreading merchant cash advance participation across various merchants. See disclosures in footnote 9 of the Company’s unaudited condensed financial statements for details regarding specific concentration amounts.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) or 15d-15(f) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer and effected by our board of directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

 

1.

Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company;

 

 

 

 

2.

Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Company; and

 

 

 

 

3.

Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. All internal control systems, no matter how well designed, have inherent limitations. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Because of the inherent limitations of internal control, there is a risk that material misstatements may not be prevented or detected on a timely basis by internal control over financial reporting. However, these inherent limitations are known features of the financial reporting process. Therefore, it is possible to design into the process safeguards to reduce, though not eliminate, this risk.

 

The Company’s management, including the chief executive officer and chief financial officer, do not expect that its disclosure controls or internal controls will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. In addition, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake.

 

As of September 30, 2021, management has not completed an effective assessment of the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting based on the 2013 Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO) framework. Management has concluded that, during the period covered by this report, our internal controls and procedures were not effective to detect the inappropriate application of U.S. GAAP. Management identified the following material weaknesses set forth below in our internal control over financial reporting.

 

 

1.

We lack the necessary corporate accounting resources to maintain adequate segregation of duties.

 

 

2.

We did not perform an effective risk assessment or monitor internal controls over financial reporting.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended September 30, 2021 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
