FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

For purposes of this Annual Report, the terms “GEX,” “GEX Management,” “the Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our,” refer to GEX Management, Inc., a Texas Corporation, and its consolidated subsidiaries unless the context clearly indicates otherwise. Included in this Annual Report are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 or by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in its rules, regulations and releases, regarding, among other things, all statements other than statements of historical facts contained in this report, including statements regarding our future financial position, business strategy and plans and objectives of management for future operations. The words “believe,” “may,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “should,” “plan,” “could,” “target,” “potential,” “is likely,” “will,” “expect” and similar expressions, as they relate to us, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that we believe may affect our financial condition, results of operations, business strategy and financial needs. In addition, our past results of operations do not necessarily indicate our future results.

 

From time to time, we also provide forward-looking statements in other materials we release to the public, as well as oral forward-looking statements. Such statements relate to our current expectations, projections and assumptions about our business, the economy and future events or conditions. They do not relate strictly to historical or current facts.

 

Forward-looking statements are not guarantees and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Actual results may differ materially from past results and from those indicated by such forward-looking statements if known or unknown risks or uncertainties materialize, or if underlying assumptions prove inaccurate. These risks and uncertainties include, among other things:

 

  our ability to execute our business plans or growth strategy;
  the nature of investment and acquisition opportunities we are pursuing, and the successful execution of such investments and acquisitions;
  our ability to successfully integrate acquired businesses and realize synergies;
  variations in our results of operations;
  our ability to accurately forecast the revenue under our contracts;
  competition for our services;
  our failure to maintain a high level of client retention or the unexpected reduction in scope or termination of key contracts with major clients;
  client dissatisfaction, our non-compliance with contractual provisions or regulatory requirements;
  our inability to manage our relationships with our clients;
  pending or threatened litigation;
  unfavorable outcomes in legal proceedings;
  our ability to generate sufficient cash to cover our interest and principal payments under our note payable, or to borrow or use credit;
  unexpected changes in tax laws, regulations or guidance and unexpected changes in our effective tax rate; and
  the market price of our common stock.

 

Other sections of this report may include additional factors which could adversely affect our business and financial performance. New risk factors emerge from time to time and it is not possible for us to anticipate all the relevant risks to our business, and we cannot assess the impact of all such risks on our business or the extent to which any risk, or combination of risks, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Those factors include, among others, those matters disclosed in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Except as otherwise required by applicable laws and regulations, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements or the risk factors described in this report, whether as a result of new information, future events, changed circumstances or any other reason after the date of this report. Neither the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 nor Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 provides any protection to us for statements made in this report. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events or performance. We cannot assure you that the events and circumstances reflected in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements.

PART I

 

ITEM 1. BUSINESS

 

History and Development of Business

 

GEX Management, Inc. was originally formed in 2004 by Carl Dorvil as Group Excellence Management, LLC. d/b/a MyEasyHQ. In March of 2016, it was converted from a limited liability company into a C corporation and changed its name to GEX Management, Inc.

 

GEX Management initially began operations as a Professional Services Company providing back office support to third-party clients. In 2016 GEX Management revised its business model to provide staffing and back-office services to a wide variety of industries in order to expand the Company’s footprint, thereby building on the previous 12-year history of exceptional client service. Over the next few years, GEX Management experienced tremendous growth in sales and customer pipeline - staffing business grew by over 1600%+ from 2016 to 2017 with the firm being named among the “fastest growing public companies in the North Texas region” by the Dallas Morning News, while also significantly expanding its client footprints across multiple staffing, business consulting and PEO opportunities.

 

In 2019, the current management of GEX under the guidance of the current CEO, Sri Vanamali, set strategic goals to revise the business model to expand into areas of higher margin and growth particularly in the area of Technology and Strategy Consulting Services. As a result of management efforts, GEX Management was invited in February 2019 to be a Preferred Supplier to Insight Global (www.insightglobal.com), one of the world’s largest Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to Fortune 100 Companies in the Enterprise Technology Consulting space. The first consultant that GEX hired through this Preferred Supplier initiative was successfully placed at a large PA based financial services firm to provide Business and Quality Analysis professional services to the client. Subsequently, GEX placed its second enterprise consultant at the world’s leading Fortune 100 CRM Company at its headquarters in San Francisco and subsequently several more highly skilled Enterprise Technology Consultants at leading Fortune 500 retail, healthcare, manufacturing and technology clients across the country . As a direct result of the high market demand for experienced technology consultants via its multiple supplier programs, the GEX team has interviewed and is in the process of procuring 45 highly experienced enterprise technology consultants with expertise across a wide array of functions (Enterprise Architects, Project Managers, Systems Integration Developers, Quality Assurance Specialists and Business Systems Analysts) who have been identified for various short to long term projects and are expected to be fully staffed by its corporate clients by Q4 2021. Additionally, GEX plans to hire and place more than 100 enterprise consultants over the next 18 - 24 month period to satisfy its growing pipeline of future contracts. As a result of these market initiatives, GEX forecasts to potentially achieve approximately $20- $25M in gross billings over the next 18-24 month period, assuming all projected contracts are fully placed on projects that have been currently identified by the GEX supplier program pipeline and businesses begin to re-open as the pandemic related restrictions are removed.

 

In Q4 2019, GEX signed a contract with one of the fastest growing, VC backed social video platform to provide key corporate and strategy consulting services – an initiative that the CEO was personally involved with in developing and growing the strategic business relationship over the last two years. This contract has resulted in enormous growth opportunities for GEX and is expected to significantly expand growth in future periods as well. GEX has also signed additional contracts to provide interim “CFO” and “CEO” consulting services to various high growth public and private companies, resulting in doubling of sales within a year and achieving an astounding double digit expansion in gross margins despite the pandemic related recessionary business environment. Furthermore, GEX is in talks with multiple companies to identify synergistic acquisition opportunities to fuel organic and inorganic growth and fulfil the corporate objective of becoming a top tier business and technology focused firm while also developing a long term and sustainable technology centric business model. Management expects these growth initiatives to help the firm eventually achieve strong and stable revenue growth while also achieving sustainable long term profitability by targeting a higher margin, lower cost model and relying on less expensive debt instruments to help reduce the burden across the firm’s capital structure.

 

In addition to these planned strategic growth initiatives which had started to build momentum in 2019 and are expected to gain significant traction in 2021 and beyond, management has been focusing on materially improving its balance sheet by significantly reducing or eliminating the debt or debt like instruments related to convertible notes and asset related liens introduced in 2018 while simultaneously exploring opportunities to reduce or eliminate the high interest MCA related toxic debt instruments that resulted in significant interest expenses to the company and a burden to operating capital. As part of this balance sheet “clean-up” initiative, on February 8 2019, GEXM and the G&C Family LLC executed a “Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure” agreement the terms of which would allow GEXM to release ownership of the Arkansas building under AMAST LLC to the G&C Family Group, LLC in return for cancellation of the $1,300,000 real estate lien note secured by the building along with any and all accrued interest payable on the note as of the date of the agreement. Additionally, on March 5, 2019, one of GEX’s promissory note holders proceeded to execute its rights to enforce the liens on the Setco property through a foreclosure process which resulted in the note holder taking possession of the Setco property resulting in the elimination of a $500,000 note and any accrued interest on the principal amount and the elimination of $1,125,000 Setco real estate lien note made to Setco along with any accrued interests from the Company books. Furthermore, GEX has been able to significantly reduce the overall debt and debt like instruments on the balance sheet through strategic conversions of convertible notes to common equity initiated by the convertible note issuers throughout 2019 and 2020 and settlement or elimination of certain MCA and debt like instruments. This focus on balance sheet cleanup and to stay significantly “asset-lite” is expected to achieve material results by Q4 2021, at which point GEX would be primed for its next phase of strategic growth initiatives by deploying equity and non-toxic debt instruments towards organic and inorganic opportunities. Finally, management believes that the material elimination of MCA and related debt like instruments will be a critical first step prior to rebuilding a robust revenue pipeline as this will require strong working capital and favorable leverage covenants to sustain operations in the long term as well as reduce liabilities related to attachment to future receivables. While management efforts to settle these instruments are aggressively underway, the inability or failure by the firm to completely address any toxic debt instruments could result in management pursuing a restructuring program or similar initiatives to bring the balance sheet within reasonable covenant parameters to allow the firm to continue operating efficiently in the coming years without exposing future customers to significant business risks associated with these toxic instruments. As part of this long term strategy, management has already begin putting processes in place to protect the company via a robust internal restructuring program and will be announcing the outcome of these intra-company restructuring efforts that will protect the interests of investors and shareholders alike over the long term and also streamline the corporate structure to be synergistic with the management’s long term vision for the company.

Business Operations

 

GEX Management is a progressive and growing provider of business services, consulting and staffing solutions to corporations across the nation. We provide both long and short-term consulting and staffing solution services, including corporate consulting, enterprise strategy and technology consulting, enterprise project management; grey, white and blue collar staffing solutions and Human Capital Management (HCM) solution capabilities.

 

GEX Management is strategically purposed to provide tailored business service products and services to our clients. Our client-responsive approach is a key differentiator in the industry.

 

Specific services are described below:

Business Strategy

 

Our objective is to become a leading management consulting, technology and business services company, and to continuously expand our client base. We seek to achieve this objective by continuing to implement our business strategy, which includes the primary elements enumerated below.

 

Marketing and Sales

 

Our comprehensive marketing efforts are fluid, adaptive, and results-driven. They comprise both traditional and non- traditional channels including print collateral, website, video, PowerPoint presentations, digital ads, social media posts and press releases. We likewise employ a small sales team. We strategically target large and medium sized businesses

that require the services we provide. Previously, a significant amount of corporate revenue has been derived through client referrals and management’s personal relationships. Our plan is to continue to leverage these important relationships while expanding our brand reach by means of integrated marketing campaigns, more timely, informative, and effectual messaging, and greater collaboration between marketing and sales in order to increase both client and sales growth.

 

Industry and Competitors

 

The Professional Staffing industry is highly fragmented, resulting in robust competition. Competition affects our success in both the market segments we currently serve, as well as the new market segments we may enter in the future. We compete with several large management and technology consulting companies that provide identical services to those GEX Management provides; some offer additional services. The financial and marketing resources of some of our competitors exceed those of GEX Management. Businesses primarily select a service provider based on price point/value, innovative/flexible product offerings, and quality of customer service.

 

Environmental Concerns

 

As a professional services company, federal, state or local laws that regulate the discharge of materials into the environment do not impact us.

 

Other Events

 

The occurrence of an uncontrollable event such as the COVID-19 pandemic may negatively affect our operations. A pandemic typically results in social distancing, travel bans and quarantine, and this may limit access to our facilities, customers, management, support staff and professional advisors. These factors, in turn, may not only impact our operations, financial condition and demand for our goods and services but our overall ability to react timely to mitigate the impact of this event. In addition, at this time we cannot predict the impact of COVID-19 on our ability to obtain financing necessary for the Company to fund its working capital requirements. Also, it may hamper our efforts to comply with our filing obligations with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

It is possible that from time to time in the ordinary course of business we may be or we may have been involved in legal proceedings, lawsuits or investigations, which could potentially have an adverse impact on our reputation, business and financial condition and divert the attention of our management from the operation of our business. In the opinion of our Board of Directors, any such legal proceedings or lawsuits that we have been involved with in the past or may be involved with are not expected to have a material adverse effect on our financial situation or results of operations.

 

ITEM 5. DEFAULTS UPON SENIOR SECURITIES

 

In connection with the Merchant Cash Advances, the company has occasionally defaulted on making certain daily interest payments as a result of lack of immediate access to capital to fulfill short term payment obligations related to these MCAs. As a result of these defaults in timely payments, Confession of Judgements have been filed by some of these MCAs in the New York district courts and GEX is currently in the process of negotiating settlement terms on monies owed to these parties. As a result of the highly irregular and unregulated nature of the Merchant Cash Advance industry, current management has taken the decision to move away from these cash advance opportunities introduced by the prior finance teams and will, going forward, solely rely on more traditional and regulated sources of financing available within the investment and regulated capital markets. Additionally, current management has determined it to be necessary to cease active business discussions with MCAs and proceed with settlement discussions to reduce or eliminate the monies owed to the MCAs and related parties in a timely manner. The management is also in the process of hiring a legal team to contest some of these Confession of Judgements which the management believes were incorrectly filed by the MCAs. The potential inability of the Company to satisfy these MCA obligations or settle in a timely manner could result in a significant impact on the financial and operational health of the company which could also potentially result in the company pursuing Chapter 11 bankruptcy and /or similar legal avenues if it is not able to settle these outstanding MCA obligations in a timely manner. While the management team has already begun these settlement conversations and is hopeful of reaching a resolution in a timely manner, there can be no guarantee that such a settlement will be reached any time soon.

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

 

Our Business

 

GEX Management is a management consulting and technology business services company providing client employers and their employees with a broad portfolio of related products and services. We provide both long and short-term consulting solution services, including enterprise strategy and technology consulting, enterprise project management; and Human Capital Management (HCM) solution capabilities.

 

Business Operations

 

GEX Management works continuously to expand its service offerings to its clients in order to assist them to achieve their respective business goals. Our unique and tailored approach, coupled with an ever-expanding array of services, has significantly differentiated the Company from competitors. GEX likewise distinguished itself in the market via accessible and exceptional client support ensuring that we will not only gain new clients but will retain those we currently have, resulting in long-term sustainability. Clients typically initiate service by means of a three-month agreement with the Company. The contract thereby automatically renews until terminated with a 30-day notice by either party.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The Company’s financial statements were prepared in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. As such, management is required to make certain estimates, judgments and assumptions that they believe are reasonable based upon the information available. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of income and expense during the periods presented.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Staffing Services and Professional Services

 

Staffing services revenue is derived from supplying temporary staff to clients. Temporary staff generally consists of temporary workers working under a contract for a fixed period of time, or on a specific client project. The temporary staff includes both GEX employees and third-parties contracted by GEX.

 

Temporary staff are provided to clients through a Staffing Service Agreement (‘SSA’) involving a specified service that the temporary staff will provide to the client. When GEX is the principal or primary obligor for the temporary staff, GEX records the gross amount of the revenue and expense from the SSA.

 

GEX is generally the primary obligor when GEX is responsible for the fulfillment of services under the SSA, even if the temporary staff are not employees of GEX. This typically occurs when GEX contracts third-parties to fulfill all or part of the SSA with the client, but GEX remains the holder of the credit risk associated with the SSA, and GEX has total discretion in establishing the pricing under the SSA.

 

All other Professional Services revenues are recognized in the period the services are performed as stipulated in the client’s Outsourcing Agreement, when the client is invoiced, and collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue recognition for arrangements with multiple deliverables constituting a single unit of accounting is recognized generally over the greater of the term of the arrangement or the expected period of performance.

 

All staffing and consulting workers are completely vetted by the company to ensure their employment terms are in adherence to all applicable state. federal and immigration laws. Additionally, GEX Management carries professional liability and fidelity/crime insurance to protect against risks involving working at third party client locations that require the workers to handle sensitive client data and equipment.

Results of Operations for the Year Ended December 31, 2020 Compared to the Year Ended December 31, 2019

 

Revenues

 

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 were $750, 682 and $385,872, respectively. The close to 100% increase in year over year sales is attributable to a significant expansion in client footprints, aggressive business development efforts and a focus on higher end management and technology consulting business expansion and growth opportunities. Additionally, the management has put in processes in place to strengthen internal controls such as, (1) adherence to established contract markups through enforcement of systematic and auto-invoicing processes to minimize manual errors and enforcing timely invoice submission to clients (2) frequent follow ups by the executive management team to ensure invoices and receivables are tracked and closed in a timely manner, and (3) timely alerts to customers to notify on upcoming billing cycles and payment dues. All of these efforts have resulted in a strong

 

Cost of Services and Gross Profit

 

The Company’s gross profit in 2020 was $636,965 with a Gross Margin of 85% compared to $278,116 with a Gross Margin of 72% in 2019. The significant 13% expansion in gross margin was primarily due to signing higher margin consulting contracts in 2020 compared to 2019 and also significant cost rationalization efforts associated with customer contracts relating to our business services in 2020 compared to 2019 and prior periods.

 

Operating Expense

 

Total operating expense in the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 were $680,202 and $700,090 respectively. The lower expenses reflects the cost rationalization efforts by the management, process efficiencies, along with reduced operating expenses associated with customer contracts relating to our business services in 2020 compared to 2019

 

Net Loss

 

Net loss for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 was $224,947 and $100,200 , respectively. The increase in losses for 2020 compared to 2019 was attributable to higher non-operating expenses and derivative losses in 2020 compared to 2019.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company has identified several potential financing sources in order to raise the capital necessary to fund operations through December 31, 2021. Management believes that it has been historically difficult for minority and women owned businesses to get access to reasonably price capital at scale which creates an opportunity to invest into these companies and receive a greater than average return for our shareholders. However, the opportunity to make a significant return for our investors is so overwhelmingly compelling that management had in the past taken short term working capital loans against future receivables in order to timely fund the growth of the company. Management intends to move away from these expensive debt like obligations and rely on other traditional and non-traditional debt instruments primarily in the form of convertible notes as well as explore various other alternatives including debt and equity financing vehicles, strategic partnerships, government programs that may be available to the Company, as well as trying to generate additional sales and increase margins. However, at this time the Company has no commitments to obtain any additional funds, and there can be no assurance such funds will be available on acceptable terms or at all. If the Company is unable to obtain additional funding, the Company’s financial condition and results of operations may be materially adversely affected and the Company may not be able to continue operations.

 

Additionally, even if the Company raises sufficient capital through additional equity or debt financing, strategic alternatives or otherwise, there can be no assurances that the revenue or capital infusion will be sufficient to enable it to develop its business to a level where it will be profitable or generate positive cash flow. If the Company incurs additional debt, a substantial portion of its operating cash flow may be dedicated to the payment of principal and interest on such indebtedness, thus limiting funds available for business activities. The terms of any debt securities issued could also impose significant restrictions on the Company’s operations. Broad market and industry factors may seriously harm the market price of our common stock, regardless of our operating performance, and may adversely impact our ability to raise additional funds. Similarly, if the Company’s common stock is delisted from the public exchange markets, it may limit its ability to raise additional funds.

 

In addition, at this time we cannot predict the impact of COVID-19 on our ability to obtain financing necessary for the Company to fund its working capital requirements.

The increase in cash used in operating activities was in part due to higher operating expenses in 2020 as the Company focused on significantly expanding the business development effort, streamlined operating costs, marketed high margin customer contracts, deployed business acquisition capital and rationalizing expenses to support long term growth.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities of $461,038 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily from debt /debt like instruments in the balance sheet.

Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act. Our internal control system was designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes, in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. Our internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (i) pertain to the maintenance records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company; (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management of the Company; and (iii) 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 inherent limitations, a system of internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate due to change in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

As part of its review into the company’s past operational and financial controls, current management identified a pattern of inconsistent application of established practices by the prior finance executive team related to managing and executing contractual obligations and related book keeping practices. Lack of easily accessible expense records and failure to match certain contract terms to invoices have resulted in higher costs and missed profit opportunities despite the company recording strong sales during these periods. Additionally, lack of certain documentation related to terms and invoices have introduced challenges to performing accurate and timely audit and review of financial books of records by both current management and the newly introduced independent audit firm.

 

Despite these past challenges, management has taking extraordinary steps to mitigate this risk by (1) reviewing the book of records for the entire fiscal year and ensuring journal entries are accurately documented for all past transactions and bank statement records are matched with book entries and corrected as needed to reflect accurate records (2) perform comprehensive review of invoices and receivables and write-off long standing receivables as bad expense if required based on detailed analysis (3) transition towards automatic bank feeds to the book of records and away from the past practice of manual book entries of bank deposits or withdrawals which are subject to human errors and prone to transactions risks. Management is confident that these changes would help mitigate the potential risks related to internal controls going forward.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation we conducted of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2020, that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Inherent Limitations

 

Control systems, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control systems’ objectives are being met. Further, the design of any control systems must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of all controls must be considered relative to their costs. Due to 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 the 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 errors or mistakes. Control systems can also be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is based in part on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies or procedures.

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), requires our executive officers and directors, and persons who beneficially own more than ten percent of our common stock, to file initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership with the SEC.

We believe that as of the date of this report they were all current in their 16(a) reports.

Committees of the Board of Directors

 

Audit Committee

 

We do not have a standing audit committee of the Board of Directors. Management has determined not to establish an audit committee at present because of our limited resources and limited operating activities do not warrant the formation of an audit committee or the expense of doing so. We do not have a financial expert serving on the Board of Directors or employed as an officer based on management’s belief that the cost of obtaining the services of a person who meets the criteria for a financial expert under Item 401(e) of Regulation S is beyond its limited financial resources and the financial skills of such an expert are simply not required or necessary for us to maintain effective internal controls and procedures for financial reporting in light of the limited scope and simplicity of accounting issues raised in its financial statements at this stage of its development.

 

Governance, Compensation and Nominating Committee

 

We do not have a standing governance, compensation and nominating committee of the Board of Directors. Management has determined not to establish governance, compensation and nominating committee at present because of our limited resources and limited operations do not warrant such a committee or the expense of doing so.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To The Board of Directors and Stockholders of

GEX Management, Inc.

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of GEX Management, Inc. (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2020, and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the two year period ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 respectively, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the financial statements). In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2020, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 respectively, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

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

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

GEX Management, Inc.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

December 31, 2019

 

NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Organization and Description of Business

 

GEX Management, Inc. (“GEX”, the “Company”, “we”, “our”, “us”) is a professional business services company that was originally formed in 2004 as Group Excellence Management, LLC d/b/a MyEasyHQ. The Company converted from a limited liability company to a C corporation in March 2016, and changed its name to GEX Management, Inc. in April 2016.

 

Material Definitive Agreements

 

No Material Agreements have been executed by the Company during this reporting period.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

Our financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), as well as the applicable regulations and rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). This requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and their accompanying notes. The actual results could differ from those estimates

 

26
 

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of GEX Management, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries. Intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

There have been no significant changes to our accounting policies that have a material impact on our financial statements and accompanying notes.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents include cash in banks and short-term investments with original maturities of three months or less.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable consists of accrued services and consulting receivables due from customers and are unsecured. The receivables are generally due within 30 to 45 days after the date of the invoice. Accounts receivable is carried at their face amount, less an allowance for doubtful accounts. GEX’s policy is not to charge interest on receivables after the invoice becomes past due. Write-offs are recorded at the time when a customer receivable is deemed uncollectible.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and Equipment, net is carried at the cost of purchase, acquisition or construction, and is depreciated over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Assets acquired in a business combination are stated at estimated fair value. Costs associated with repair and maintenance are expensed as they are incurred. Costs associated with improvements which extend the life, increase the capacity or improve the efficiency of our property and equipment are capitalized and depreciated over the remaining life of the related asset. Depreciation and amortization are provided using the straight-line methods over the useful lives of the assets as follows:

 

    Useful Life
Buildings   30 Years
Office Furniture & Equipment   5 Years

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company records an impairment of long-lived assets used in operations, other than goodwill, and its equity method investments when events or circumstances indicate that the asset might be impaired and the estimated undiscounted cash flows to be generated by those assets over their remaining lives are less than the carrying amount of those items. The net carrying value of assets not recoverable is reduced to fair value, which is typically calculated using the discounted cash flow method.

 

27
 

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Effective on January 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). ASU No. 2014-09 outlines a single, comprehensive revenue recognition model for revenue derived from contracts with customers and it supersedes the prior revenue recognition guidance, including prior guidance that is industry-specific. Under ASU No. 2014-09, an entity recognizes revenue for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration for which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company adopted ASU No. 2014-09 using the modified retrospective method, which applies to only the most current period presented in the financial statements. There were no significant changes to the Company’s existing revenue recognition policies as a result of adopting ASU 2014-09.

 

GEX enters into contracts with its clients for professional services. GEX’s contract stipulates the rate and price charged to each client. GEX’s contracts for these services are generally cancellable at any time by either party with 30-days’ written notice. GEX fulfills its performance obligations each month, and the contracts generally have a term of one year with an automatic renewal after 12 months. The duration between invoicing and when GEX completes its contractual, performance obligations are satisfied is not significant. For staffing and professional services payment is generally due 30 days after the invoice is sent to the client. GEX does not have significant financing components or significant payment terms.

 

Staffing Services and Professional Services

 

Staffing services revenue is derived from supplying temporary staff to clients. Temporary staff generally consists of temporary workers working under a contract for a fixed period of time, or on a specific client project. The temporary staff includes both GEX employees and third-parties contracted by GEX.

 

Temporary staff are provided to clients through a Staffing Service Agreement (‘SSA’) involving a specified service that the temporary staff will provide to the client. When GEX is the principal or primary obligor for the temporary staff, GEX records the gross amount of the revenue and expense from the SSA.

 

GEX is generally the primary obligor when GEX is responsible for the fulfillment of services under the SSA, even if the temporary staff are not employees of GEX. This typically occurs when GEX contracts third-parties to fulfill all or part of the SSA with the client, but GEX remains the holder of the credit risk associated with the SSA, and GEX has total discretion in establishing the pricing under the SSA.

 

All other Professional Services revenues are recognized in the period the services are performed as stipulated in the client’s Outsourcing Agreement, when the client is invoiced, and collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue recognition for arrangements with multiple deliverables constituting a single unit of accounting is recognized generally over the greater of the term of the arrangement or the expected period of performance.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company uses the liability method in the computation of income tax expense and the current and deferred income taxes payable. A valuation allowance is provided for the amount of deferred tax assets that, based on available evidence, are not expected to be realized.

 

28
 

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

ASC Topic 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles, and requires certain disclosures about fair value measurements. In general, fair value of financial instruments is based upon quoted market prices, where available. If such quoted market prices are not available, fair value is based upon internally developed models that primarily use, as inputs, observable market-based parameters. Valuation adjustments may be made to ensure that financial instruments are recorded at fair value. These adjustments may include amounts to reflect counterparty credit quality and the Company’s credit worthiness, among other things, as well as unobservable parameters.

 

Earnings Per Share

 

Earnings per share are calculated in accordance with ASC 260 “Earnings per Share”. Basic income (loss) per share is computed by dividing the period income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing the income (loss) available to common share holders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus additional common shares that would have been outstanding if dilutive potential common shares had been issued. For purposes of this calculation, common stock dividends, warrants and options to acquire common stock, would be considered common stock equivalents in periods in which they have a dilutive effect and are excluded from this calculation in periods in which these are anti-dilutive to the net loss per share.

 

Earnings per share information for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 has been retroactively adjusted to reflect the stock split that occurred in December 2017 and the reverse stock split that occurred in May 2020.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. Such reclassifications have had no effect on the financial position as of December 31, 2020 or operations or cash flows for the periods ended December 31 2020.

 

Going Concern

 

To date, the Company has funded its operations primarily through public and private offerings of common stock, our line of credit, short- term discounted and convertible notes payable. The Company has identified several potential financing sources in order to raise the capital necessary to fund operations through December 31, 2021.

 

In addition to the aforementioned current sources of capital that will provide additional short-term liquidity, the Company is currently exploring various other alternatives including debt and equity financing vehicles, strategic partnerships, government programs that may be available to the Company, as well as trying to generate additional sales and increase margins. However, at this time the Company has no commitments to obtain any additional funds, and there can be no assurance such funds will be available on acceptable terms or at all. If the Company is unable to obtain additional funding and improve its operations, the Company’s financial condition and results of operations may be materially adversely affected and the Company may not be able to continue operations, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Additionally, even if the Company raises sufficient capital through additional equity or debt financing, strategic alternatives or otherwise, there can be no assurances that the revenue or capital infusion will be sufficient to enable it to develop its business to a level where it will be profitable or generate positive cash flow. If the Company raises additional funds through the issuance of equity or convertible debt securities, the percentage ownership of our stockholders could be significantly diluted, and these newly issued securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing stockholders. If the Company incurs additional debt, a substantial portion of its operating cash flow may be dedicated to the payment of principal and interest on such indebtedness, thus limiting funds available for business activities. The terms of any debt securities issued could also impose significant restrictions on the Company’s operations. Broad market and industry factors may seriously harm the market price of our common stock, regardless of our operating performance, and may adversely impact our ability to raise additional funds. Similarly, if the Company’s common stock is delisted from the public exchange markets, it may limit its ability to raise additional funds.

 

The consolidated financial statements for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 were prepared on the basis of a going concern which contemplates that the Company will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business. Accordingly, they do not give effect to adjustments that would be necessary should the Company be required to liquidate its assets. The ability of the Company to meet its total liabilities and to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the availability of future funding, continued growth in billings and sales contracts, and the Company’s ability to profitably meet its after-sale service commitments with its existing customers. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

 

In addition, at this time we cannot predict the impact of COVID-19 on our ability to obtain financing necessary for the Company to fund its working capital requirements. Also, it may hamper our efforts to comply with our filing obligations with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
