EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

The Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) issued an order on March 4, 2020, as amended on March 25, 2020, which provided conditional relief to public companies that are unable to timely comply with their filing obligations as a result of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak (the “SEC Order”). The current outbreak of COVID-19 has posed a significant impact on Kaya Holdings, Inc. to file on a timely basis this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 (the “Quarterly Report”) by the original due date of May 14, 2020, and therefore elected to rely on the conditional filing relief provided under the SEC Order.

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF THE BUSINESS

 

Organization

 

Kaya Holdings, Inc. FKA (Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc.) is a holding company. The Company was incorporated in 1993 and has engaged in a number of businesses. Its name was changed on May 11, 2007 to NetSpace International Holdings, Inc. (a Delaware corporation) (“NetSpace”). NetSpace acquired 100% of Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc. (a Florida corporation) in January 2010 in a stock-for-member interest transaction and issued 6,567,247 shares of common stock and 100,000 shares of Series C convertible preferred stock to existing shareholders. Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation was filed in October 2010 changing the Company’s name from NetSpace International Holdings, Inc. to Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc. (a Delaware corporation). Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation was filed in March 2015 changing the Company’s name from Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc. (a Delaware corporation) to Kaya Holdings, Inc.

 

 The Company has four subsidiaries: Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc, a Florida corporation, which is wholly-owned, Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc., a Florida corporation (“MJAI”), which is majority-owned, 34225 Kowitz Road, LLC, a wholly-owned Oregon limited liability company which holds ownership of the Company’s 26 acre property in Lebanon, Oregon on which it plans to develop a legal cannabis cultivation and manufacturing facility, and Kaya Brand International, Inc. (KBI) a Florida Corporation which the Company owns 85% of which was formed on October 14, 2019 to expand the business overseas which the Company .

 

MJAI develops and operates the Company’s legal cannabis retail operations in Oregon through controlling ownership interests in five Oregon limited liability companies: MJAI Oregon 1 LLC, MJAI Oregon 2 LLC (inactive), MJAI Oregon 3 LLC (inactive) , MJAI Oregon 4 LLC (inactive) and MJAI Oregon 5 LLC.

 

MJAI Oregon 1 LLC is the entity that holds the licenses for the Company’s retail store operations and pending OLCC Production and Processing license transfer applications for the 260 Grimes Street property in Eugene, Oregon. MJAI Oregon 5 LLC maintains the Company’s pending OLCC Producer Application for the Company’s 26 acre farm property in Lebanon Oregon

 

Nature of the Business  

 

In January 2014, KAYS incorporated MJAI, a wholly-owned subsidiary, to focus on opportunities in the legal recreational and medical marijuana in the United States. MJAI has concentrated its efforts in Oregon, where through controlled Oregon limited liability companies, it initially secured licenses to operate a medical marijuana dispensary (an “MMD”) and following legalization of recreational cannabis use in Oregon, has secured licenses to operate four retail outlets and purchased 26 acres for development as a legal cannabis cultivation and manufacturing facility. The Company has developed the Kaya Shack™ brand for its retail operations.

 

On July 3, 2014 opened its first Kaya Shack™ MMD in Portland, Oregon.  In April 2015, KAYS commenced its own medical marijuana grow operations for the cultivation and harvesting of legal marijuana thereby becoming the first publicly traded U.S. company to own a majority interest in a vertically integrated legal marijuana enterprise in the United States. In October 2015, concurrent with Oregon commencing legal sales of recreational marijuana through MMDs, KAYS opened its second retail outlet in Salem, Oregon, the Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore. During 2015, the Company also consolidated its grow operations and manufacturing operations into a single facility in Portland, Oregon.

In 2016, Oregon began the process to transition legal marijuana sales from Oregon Health Authority (“OHA”) licensed MMDs and grow operations to Oregon Liquor Control Commission (“OLCC”) licensed recreational marijuana retailers and producer and processing facilities. Effective January 1, 2017, all retailers of recreational marijuana were required to have a recreational marijuana sales license issued by the OLLC for each retail outlet operated.

 

In 2016 the Company applied for OLLC licenses for its two initial Kaya Shack™ retail outlets (Portland, Oregon and South Salem, Oregon), and also submitted license applications for its two new locations under construction and development at that time.

 

In late December 2016, we received our OLCC recreational license for the South Salem Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore (Kaya Shack™ OLCC Marijuana Retailer License #1) and recreational and medical sales continued without interruption from 2016 through the present at that location.

 

On March 21, 2017, we received our North Salem Kaya Shack™ outlet (Kaya Shack™ OLCC Marijuana Retailer License #2) a 2,600-square foot Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore in North Salem, Oregon, whereupon the location opened for business with both recreational and medical sales.

 

On May 2, 2017, we received our OLCC recreational license for our Portland Kaya Shack™ outlet (Kaya Shack™ OLCC Marijuana Retailer License #3) after a delay of approximately four months. During that period, we were limited to solely medical sales at the Portland location. Upon receipt of Kaya Shack™ OLCC Marijuana Retailer License #3, recreational sales recommenced at that location. Our OLCC License for the Central Salem Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore (Kaya Shack™ OLCC Marijuana Retailer License #4) has been filed and is pending completion, inspection and final licensing.

 

During August of 2017, we purchased 26 acres in Lebanon, Oregon, for development as a legal cannabis cultivation and manufacturing facility. The company is in the process of planning and permitting.

 

On February 15, 2018, we received our OLCC recreational, medical and home delivery license for the Central Salem Kaya ShackTM outlet (Kaya ShackTM OLCC Marijuana Retailer License #4) a 3,100-square foot Kaya ShackTM Marijuana Superstore in Central Salem, Oregon. After various construction and permitting delays, On April 12, 2018, the location opened for business with both recreational and medical sales.

 

On August 18, 2018, the Company had concluded the purchase of the Eugene, Oregon based Sunstone Farms manufacturing facility, which is licensed by the OLCC for both the production of medical and recreational marijuana flower and the processing of cannabis concentrates/extracts/edibles. The purchase includes a 12,000 square foot building housing and indoor grow facility, as well as equipment for growing and extraction activity. The facility can produce in excess of 800 pounds cannabis flower annually as currently outfitted. The Company is presently seeking transfer of the Facility’s OLCC Marijuana Production and Processing Licenses from the Facility’s Prior Licensee, Sunstone Farms to MJAI Oregon 1, LLC which the OLCC has not yet approved. Pending the transfer or issuance of a new License to the Company’s Operating subsidiary, or the purchase of another existing OLCC License and its transfer for use at the Facility the Company has conducted only limited operations of the Facility pending resolution of the Licensing. For more information please see Part I, Item 3. Legal Proceedings of the 10-K.

 

In February, 2020 the Company renewed the OLCC Marijuana Retailer Licenses #1, 2 and 4 listed above and did not renew OLCC Marijuana Retailer License #3 and ceased operations at that location. Additionally, the Company is in the process of seeking to transfer OLCC License #4 to either its 12,000 square foot property in Eugene, Oregon to facilitate a delivery hub for Eugene, Oregon or other such location to make effective use of MJAI Retailer License #4.

NOTE 2 – LIQUIDITY AND GOING CONCERN

 

The Company’s consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2020 have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company incurred a net loss of $657,767 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and a net income of $4,249,532 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease in net income is due to the changes in derivative liabilities, the decrease in amortization of debt discount and derivative liabilities expense, as wells as the company continues to have operating losses. At March 31, 2020 the Company has a working capital deficiency of $9,810,344 and is totally dependent on its ability to raise capital. The Company has a plan of operations and acknowledges that its plan of operations may not result in generating positive working capital in the near future. Even though management believes that it will be able to successfully execute its business plan, which includes third-party financing and capital issuance, and meet the Company’s future liquidity needs, there can be no assurances in that regard. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this material uncertainty. Management recognizes that the Company must generate additional funds to successfully develop its operations and activities. Management plans include:

 

· The sale of additional equity and debt securities
· The sale of additional equity and debt securities
· Alliances and/or partnerships with entities interested in and having the resources to support the further development of the Company’s business plan
· Business transactions to assure continuation of the Company’s development and operations
· Development of a unified brand and the pursuit of licenses to operate recreational and medical marijuana facilities under the branded name

 

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) under the accrual basis of accounting.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes.

 

Such estimates and assumptions impact both assets and liabilities, including but not limited to: net realizable value of accounts receivable and inventory, estimated useful lives and potential impairment of property and equipment, the valuation of intangible assets, estimate of fair value of share based payments and derivative liabilities, estimates of fair value of warrants issued and recorded as debt discount, estimates of tax liabilities and estimates of the probability and potential magnitude of contingent liabilities.

 

Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate could change in the near term due to one or more future non-conforming events. Accordingly, actual results could differ significantly from estimates.

Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Company’s operations are subject to risk and uncertainties including financial, operational, regulatory and other risks including the potential risk of business failure.  

 

The Company has experienced, and in the future expects to continue to experience, variability in its sales and earnings.  The factors expected to contribute to this variability include, among others, (i) the uncertainty associated with the commercialization and ultimate success of the product, (ii) competition inherent at other locations where product is expected to be sold (iii) general economic conditions and (iv) the related volatility of prices pertaining to the cost of sales. 

     

Fiscal Year

 

The Company’s fiscal year-end is December 31.

Non-Controlling Interest

 

The company owned 55% of Marijuana Holdings Americas until September 30, 2019. Starting October 1, 2019, Kaya Holding, Inc. owns 65% of Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc. As of March 31, 2020 Kaya owns 65% of Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents are carried at cost and represent cash on hand, demand deposits placed with banks or other financial institutions and all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less. The Company had no cash equivalents.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consists of finished goods purchased, which are valued at the lower of cost or market value, with cost being determined on the first-in, first-out method.  The Company periodically reviews historical sales activity to determine potentially obsolete items and also evaluates the impact of any anticipated changes in future demand.  Total Value of Finished goods inventory as of March 31, 2020 is $80,231 and $108,008 as of December 31, 2019. No allowance as necessary as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment is stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation and is reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.  

 

Depreciation of property and equipment is provided utilizing the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives, ranging from 5-30 years of the respective assets. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.

 

Upon sale or retirement of property and equipment, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is reflected in the statements of operations.

   

Long-lived assets

 

The Company reviews long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles held and used for possible impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. In evaluating the fair value and future benefits of its intangible assets, management performs an analysis of the anticipated undiscounted future net cash flow of the individual assets over the remaining amortization period. The Company recognizes an impairment loss if the carrying value of the asset exceeds the expected future cash flows.

 

Operating Leases

 

We lease our retail stores under non-cancellable operating leases. Most store leases include tenant allowances from landlords, rent escalation clauses and/or contingent rent provisions. We recognize rent expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term, excluding contingent rent, and record the difference between the amount charged to expense and the rent paid as a deferred rent liability.

 

Deferred Rent and Tenant Allowances

 

Deferred rent is recognized when a lease contains fixed rent escalations. We recognize the related rent expense on a straight-line basis starting from the date of possession and record the difference between the recognized rental expense and cash rent payable as deferred rent. Deferred rent also includes tenant allowances received from landlords in accordance with negotiated lease terms. The tenant allowances are amortized as a reduction to rent expense on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease starting at the date of possession.

Earnings Per Share

 

In accordance with ASC 260, Earnings per Share, the Company calculates basic earnings per share by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share are computed if the Company has net income; otherwise it would be anti-dilutive, and would result from the conversion of a convertible note.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC 740, Accounting for Income Taxes, as clarified by ASC 740-10, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes.  Under this method, deferred income taxes are determined based on the estimated future tax effects of differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities given the provisions of enacted tax laws. Deferred income tax provisions and benefits are based on changes to the assets or liabilities from year to year. In providing for deferred taxes, the Company considers tax regulations of the jurisdictions in which the Company operates, estimates of future taxable income, and available tax planning strategies. If tax regulations, operating results or the ability to implement tax-planning strategies vary, adjustments to the carrying value of deferred tax assets and liabilities may be required. Valuation allowances are recorded related to deferred tax assets based on the “more likely than not” criteria of ASC 740.

 

ASC 740-10 requires that the Company recognize the financial statement benefit of a tax position only after determining that the relevant tax authority would more likely than not sustain the position following an audit. For tax positions meeting the “more-likely-than-not” threshold, the amount recognized in the financial statements is the largest benefit that has a greater than 50 percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the relevant tax authority.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company measures assets and liabilities at fair value based on an expected exit price as defined by the authoritative guidance on fair value measurements, which represents the amount that would be received on the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability, as the case may be, in an orderly transaction between market participants. As such, fair value may be based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. The authoritative guidance on fair value measurements establishes a consistent framework for measuring fair value on either a recurring or nonrecurring basis whereby inputs, used in valuation techniques, are assigned a hierarchical level.

 

The following are the hierarchical levels of inputs to measure fair value:

 

  Level 1 – Observable inputs that reflect quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

  Level 2 - Inputs reflect quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the assets or liabilities; or inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.

 

  Level 3 – Unobservable inputs reflecting the Company’s assumptions incorporated in valuation techniques used to determine fair value. These assumptions are required to be consistent with market participant assumptions that are reasonably available.

The carrying amounts of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities, such as cash, prepaid expenses, other current assets, accounts payable & accrued expenses, certain notes payable and notes payable – related party, approximate their fair values because of the short maturity of these instruments.

 

The Company accounts for its derivative liabilities, at fair value, on a recurring basis under level 3. See Note 7.

 

Embedded Conversion Features

 

The Company evaluates embedded conversion features within convertible debt under ASC 815 “Derivatives and Hedging” to determine whether the embedded conversion feature(s) should be bifurcated from the host instrument and accounted for as a derivative at fair value with changes in fair value recorded in earnings. If the conversion feature does not require derivative treatment under ASC 815, the instrument is evaluated under ASC 470-20 “Debt with Conversion and Other Options” for consideration of any beneficial conversion feature.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks. The Company evaluates all of it financial instruments, including stock purchase warrants, to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives.

 

For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported as charges or credits to income. For option-based simple derivative financial instruments, the Company uses the Binomial option-pricing model to value the derivative instruments at inception and subsequent valuation dates. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is re-assessed at the end of each reporting period.

In July 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-11 Earnings Per Share (Topic 260); Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480); Derivative and Hedging (Topic 815). The amendments in Part I of this Update change the classification analysis of certain equity-linked financial instruments (or embedded features) with down round features. When determining whether certain financial instruments should be classified as liabilities or equity instruments, a down round feature no longer precludes equity classification when assessing whether the instrument is indexed to an entity’s own stock. The amendment also clarify existing disclosure requirements for equity-classified instruments. As a result, a freestanding equity-linked financial instrument (or embedded conversion option) no longer would be accounted for as a derivative liability at fair value as a result of the existence of a down round feature. For freestanding equity classified financial instruments, the amendments require entities that present earnings per share (“EPS”) in accordance with Topic 260 to recognize the effect of the down round feature when it is triggered. That effect is treated as a dividend and as a reduction of income available to common shareholders in basic EPS. Convertible instruments with embedded conversion options that have down round features are now subject to the specialized guidance for contingent beneficial conversion features (in Subtopic 470-20, Debt-Debt with Conversion and Other Options), including related EPS guidance (in Topic 260). The amendments in Part II of this Update recharacterize the indefinite deferral of certain provisions of Topic 480 that now are presented as pending content in the Codification, to a scope exception. Those amendments do not have an accounting effect.

 

Prior to this Update, an equity-linked financial instrument with a down round feature that otherwise is not required to be classified as a liability under the guidance in Topic 480 is evaluated under the guidance in Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, to determine whether it meets the definition of a derivative. If it meets that definition, the instrument (or embedded feature) is evaluated to determine whether it is indexed to an entity’s own stock as part of the analysis of whether it qualifies for a scope exception from derivative accounting. Generally, for warrants and conversion options embedded in financial instruments that are deemed to have a debt host (assuming the underlying shares are readily convertible to cash or the contract provides for net settlement such that the embedded conversion option meets the definition of a derivative), the existence of a down round feature results in an instrument not being considered indexed to an entity’s own stock. This results in a reporting entity being required to classify the freestanding financial instrument or the bifurcated conversion option as a liability, which the entity must measure at fair value initially and at each subsequent reporting date.

 

The amendments in this Update revise the guidance for instruments with down round features in Subtopic 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity, which is considered in determining whether an equity-linked financial instrument qualifies for a scope exception from derivative accounting. An entity still is required to determine whether instruments would be classified in equity under the guidance in Subtopic 815-40 in determining whether they qualify for that scope exception. If they do qualify, freestanding instruments with down round features are no longer classified as liabilities and embedded conversion options with down round features are no longer bifurcated.

 

For entities that present EPS in accordance with Topic 260, and when the down round feature is included in an equity-classified freestanding financial instrument, the value of the effect of the down round feature is treated as a dividend when it is triggered and as a numerator adjustment in the basic EPS calculation. This reflects the occurrence of an economic transfer of value to the holder of the instrument, while alleviating the complexity and income statement volatility associated with fair value measurement on an ongoing basis. Convertible instruments are unaffected by the Topic 260 amendments in this Update.

 

The amendments in Part 1 of this Update are a cost savings relative to former accounting. This is because, assuming the required criteria for equity classification in Subtopic 815-40 are met, an entity that issued such an instrument no longer measures the instrument at fair value at each reporting period (in the case of warrants) or separately accounts for a bifurcated derivative (in the case of convertible instruments) on the basis of the existence of a down round feature. For convertible instruments with embedded conversion options that have down round features, applying specialized guidance such as the model for contingent beneficial conversion features rather than bifurcating an embedded derivative also reduces cost and complexity. Under that specialized guidance, the issuer recognizes the intrinsic value of the feature only when the feature becomes beneficial instead of bifurcating the conversion option and measuring it at fair value each reporting period.

  11  

 

 

The amendments in Part II of this Update replace the indefinite deferral of certain guidance in Topic 480 with a scope exception. This has the benefit of improving the readability of the Codification and reducing the complexity associated with navigating the guidance in Topic 480.

 

The Company adopted this new standard on January 1, 2019; however, the Company needs to continue the derivative liabilities due to variable conversion price on some of the convertible instruments. As such, it did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

Beneficial Conversion Feature

 

For conventional convertible debt where the rate of conversion is below market value, the Company records a "beneficial conversion feature" ("BCF") and related debt discount.

 

When the Company records a BCF, the relative fair value of the BCF is recorded as a debt discount against the face amount of the respective debt instrument (offset to additional paid in capital) and amortized to interest expense over the life of the debt.

 

Debt Issue Costs and Debt Discount

 

The Company may record debt issue costs and/or debt discounts in connection with raising funds through the issuance of debt.  These costs may be paid in the form of cash, or equity (such as warrants). These costs are amortized to interest expense over the life of the debt. If a conversion of the underlying debt occurs, a proportionate share of the unamortized amounts is immediately expensed.

 

Original Issue Discount

 

For certain convertible debt issued, the Company may provide the debt holder with an original issue discount.  The original issue discount would be recorded to debt discount, reducing the face amount of the note and is amortized to interest expense over the life of the debt.

 

Extinguishments of Liabilities

 

The Company accounts for extinguishments of liabilities in accordance with ASC 860-10 (formerly SFAS 140) “Accounting for Transfers and Servicing of Financial Assets and Extinguishment of Liabilities”. When the conditions are met for extinguishment accounting, the liabilities are derecognized and the gain or loss on the sale is recognized.

 

Stock-Based Compensation - Employees

 

The Company accounts for its stock-based compensation in which the Company obtains employee services in share-based payment transactions under the recognition and measurement principles of the fair value recognition provisions of section 718-10-30 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. Pursuant to paragraph 718-10-30-6 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification, all transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable.  

 

The measurement date used to determine the fair value of the equity instrument issued is the earlier of the date on which the performance is complete or the date on which it is probable that performance will occur.  

 

If the Company is a newly formed corporation or shares of the Company are thinly traded, the use of share prices established in the Company’s most recent private placement memorandum (based on sales to third parties) (“PPM”), or weekly or monthly price observations would generally be more appropriate than the use of daily price observations as such shares could be artificially inflated due to a larger spread between the bid and asked quotes and lack of consistent trading in the market.

  12  

 

 

The fair value of share options and similar instruments is estimated on the date of grant using a Binomial Option Model option-pricing valuation model.  The ranges of assumptions for inputs are as follows:

 

 

Expected term of share options and similar instruments: The expected life of options and similar instruments represents the period of time the option and/or warrant are expected to be outstanding. Pursuant to Paragraph 718-10-50-2(f)(2)(i) of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification the expected term of share options and similar instruments represents the period of time the options and similar instruments are expected to be outstanding taking into consideration of the contractual term of the instruments and employees’ expected exercise and post-vesting employment termination behavior into the fair value (or calculated value) of the instruments.  Pursuant to paragraph 718-10-S99-1, it may be appropriate to use the simplified method, i.e., expected term = ((vesting term + original contractual term) / 2), if (i) A company does not have sufficient historical exercise data to provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate expected term due to the limited period of time its equity shares have been publicly traded; (ii) A company significantly changes the terms of its share option grants or the types of employees that receive share option grants such that its historical exercise data may no longer provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate expected term; or (iii) A company has or expects to have significant structural changes in its business such that its historical exercise data may no longer provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate expected term. The Company uses the simplified method to calculate expected term of share options and similar instruments as the company does not have sufficient historical exercise data to provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate expected term.

 

 

Expected volatility of the entity’s shares and the method used to estimate it.  Pursuant to ASC Paragraph 718-10-50-2(f)(2)(ii) a thinly-traded or nonpublic entity that uses the calculated value method shall disclose the reasons why it is not practicable for the Company to estimate the expected volatility of its share price, the appropriate industry sector index that it has selected, the reasons for selecting that particular index, and how it has calculated historical volatility using that index.  The Company uses the average historical volatility of the comparable companies over the expected contractual life of the share options or similar instruments as its expected volatility.  If shares of a company are thinly traded the use of weekly or monthly price observations would generally be more appropriate than the use of daily price observations as the volatility calculation using daily observations for such shares could be artificially inflated due to a larger spread between the bid and asked quotes and lack of consistent trading in the market.

 

 

Expected annual rate of quarterly dividends.  An entity that uses a method that employs different dividend rates during the contractual term shall disclose the range of expected dividends used and the weighted-average expected dividends.  The expected dividend yield is based on the Company’s current dividend yield as the best estimate of projected dividend yield for periods within the expected term of the share options and similar instruments.

 

 

Risk-free rate(s). An entity that uses a method that employs different risk-free rates shall disclose the range of risk-free rates used.  The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant for periods within the expected term of the share options and similar instruments.

 

Generally, all forms of share-based payments, including stock option grants, warrants and restricted stock grants and stock appreciation rights are measured at their fair value on the awards’ grant date, based on estimated number of awards that are ultimately expected to vest.

 

The expense resulting from share-based payments is recorded in general and administrative expense in the statements of operations.

Stock-Based Compensation – Non Employees

 

Equity Instruments Issued to Parties Other Than Employees for Acquiring Goods or Services

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-07, Compensation – Stock Compensation: Improvement to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting (Topic 718). The ASU supersedes ASC 505-50, Equity-Based Payment to Non-Employment and expends the scope of the Topic 718 to include stock-based payments granted to non-employees. Under the new guidance, the measurement date and performance and vesting conditions for stock-based payments to non-employees are aligned with those of employees, most notably aligning the award measurement date with the grant date of an award. The new guidance is required to be adopted using the modified retrospective transition approach. The Company adopted the new guidance effective January 1, 2019, with an immaterial impact on its financial statements and related disclosures.

 

The fair value of share options and similar instruments is estimated on the date of grant using a Binomial option-pricing valuation model.  The ranges of assumptions for inputs are as follows:

 

 

Expected term of share options and similar instruments: Pursuant to Paragraph 718-10-50-2(f)(2)(i) of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification the expected term of share options and similar instruments represents the period of time the options and similar instruments are expected to be outstanding taking into consideration of the contractual term of the instruments and holder’s expected exercise behavior into the fair value (or calculated value) of the instruments.  The Company uses historical data to estimate holder’s expected exercise behavior.  If the Company is a newly formed corporation or shares of the Company are thinly traded the contractual term of the share options and similar instruments is used as the expected term of share options and similar instruments as the Company does not have sufficient historical exercise data to provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate expected term.

 

 

Expected volatility of the entity’s shares and the method used to estimate it.  Pursuant to ASC Paragraph 718-10-50-2(f)(2)(ii) a thinly-traded or nonpublic entity that uses the calculated value method shall disclose the reasons why it is not practicable for the Company to estimate the expected volatility of its share price, the appropriate industry sector index that it has selected, the reasons for selecting that particular index, and how it has calculated historical volatility using that index.  The Company uses the average historical volatility of the comparable companies over the expected contractual life of the share options or similar instruments as its expected volatility.  If shares of a company are thinly traded the use of weekly or monthly price observations would generally be more appropriate than the use of daily price observations as the volatility calculation using daily observations for such shares could be artificially inflated due to a larger spread between the bid and asked quotes and lack of consistent trading in the market.

 

 

Expected annual rate of quarterly dividends.  An entity that uses a method that employs different dividend rates during the contractual term shall disclose the range of expected dividends used and the weighted-average expected dividends.  The expected dividend yield is based on the Company’s current dividend yield as the best estimate of projected dividend yield for periods within the expected term of the share options and similar instruments.

 

 

Risk-free rate(s). An entity that uses a method that employs different risk-free rates shall disclose the range of risk-free rates used.  The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant for periods within the expected term of the share options and similar instruments.

 

 

Revenue Recognition

  

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASC 606 – Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Under ASC 606, the Company recognizes revenue from the commercial sales of products, licensing agreements and contracts to perform pilot studies by applying the following steps: (1) identifying the contract with a customer; (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (3) determine the transaction price; (4) allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation in the contract; and (5) recognize revenue when each performance obligation is satisfied.

To confirm, all of our OLCC licensed cannabis retail sales operations are conducted and operated on a “cash and carry” basis- product(s) from our inventory accounts are sold to the customer(s) and the customer settles the account at time of receipt of product via cash payment at our retail store; the transaction is recorded at the time of sale in our point of sale software system. Revenue is only reported after product has been delivered to the customer and the customer has paid for the product with cash.

 

To date the only other revenue we have received is for ATM transactions and revenue from this activity is only reported after we receive payment via check from the ATM service provider company.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales represents costs directly related to the purchase of goods and third party testing of the Company’s products.

 

Related Parties

 

The Company follows subtopic 850-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for the identification of related parties and disclosure of related party transactions.

 

Pursuant to Section 850-10-20 the related parties include a. affiliates of the Company; b. Entities for which investments in their equity securities would be required, absent the election of the fair value option under the Fair Value Option Subsection of Section 825–10–15, to be accounted for by the equity method by the investing entity; c. trusts for the benefit of employees, such as pension and profit-sharing trusts that are managed by or under the trusteeship of management; d. principal owners of the Company; e. management of the Company; f. other parties with which the Company may deal if one party controls or can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the other to an extent that one of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests; and g. Other parties that can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the transacting parties or that have an ownership interest in one of the transacting parties and can significantly influence the other to an extent that one or more of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests.

 

The consolidated financial statements shall include disclosures of material related party transactions, other than compensation arrangements, expense allowances, and other similar items in the ordinary course of business. However, disclosure of transactions that are eliminated in the preparation of consolidated or combined financial statements is not required in those statements.

 

The disclosures shall include: a. the nature of the relationship(s) involved; b. a description of the transactions, including transactions to which no amounts or nominal amounts were ascribed, for each of the periods for which income statements are presented, and such other information deemed necessary to an understanding of the effects of the transactions on the financial statements; c. the dollar amounts of transactions for each of the periods for which income statements are presented and the effects of any change in the method of establishing the terms from that used in the preceding period; and d. amounts due from or to related parties as of the date of each balance sheet presented and, if not otherwise apparent, the terms and manner of settlement.

 

Contingencies

 

The Company follows subtopic 450-20 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification to report accounting for contingencies. Certain conditions may exist as of the date the consolidated financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. The Company assesses such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or unasserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought therein.

 

If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, then the estimated liability would be accrued in the Company’s financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potentially material loss contingency is not probable but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability, and an estimate of the range of possible losses, if determinable and material, would be disclosed.

  15  

 

 

Loss contingencies considered remote are generally not disclosed unless they involve guarantees, in which case the guarantees would be disclosed. However, there is no assurance that such matters will not materially and adversely affect the Company’s business, consolidated financial position, and consolidated results of operations or consolidated cash flows.

 

Uncertain Tax Positions

 

The Company did not take any uncertain tax positions and had no adjustments to its income tax liabilities or benefits pursuant to the provisions of Section 740-10-25 for the reporting period ended March 31, 2020.

 

Subsequent Events

 

The Company follows the guidance in Section 855-10-50 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for the disclosure of subsequent events. The Company will evaluate subsequent events through the date when the financial statements are issued.

  

Pursuant to ASU 2010-09 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification, the Company as an SEC filer considers its financial statements issued when they are widely distributed to users, such as through filing them on EDGAR.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

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

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (ASU 2016-02). Under ASU No. 2016-2, an entity is required to recognize right-of-use assets and lease liabilities on its balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. ASU No. 2016-02 offers specific accounting guidance for a lessee, a lessor and sale and leaseback transactions. Lessees and lessors are required to disclose qualitative and quantitative information about leasing arrangements to enable a user of the financial statements to assess the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. For public companies, the Company adopted this standard on January 1, 2019 using the modified retrospective method. The new standard provides a number of optional practical expedients in transition. The Company elected the package of practical expedients’, which permitted the Company not to reassess under the new standard its prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs; and all of the new standard’s available transition practical expedients.

 

On adoption, the Company recognized a right of use asset of $638,593, operating lease liabilities of $638,593, based on the present value of the remaining minimum rental payments under current leasing standards for its existing operating lease.

 

The new standard also provides practical expedients for a company’s ongoing accounting. The Company elected the short-term lease recognition exemption for its leases. For those leases with a lease term of 12 months or less, the Company will not recognize ROU assets or lease liabilities.

 

In July 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-11, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260); Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480); Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): (Part I) Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Down Round Features, (Part II) Replacement of the Indefinite Deferral for Mandatorily Redeemable Financial Instruments of Certain Nonpublic Entities and Certain Mandatorily Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests with a Scope Exception” to simply the accounting for certain instruments with down round features. The amendments require companies to disregard the down round feature when assessing whether the instrument is indexed to its own stock, for purposes of determining liability or equity classification. Further, companies that provide earnings per share (“EPS”) data will adjust the basic EPS calculation for the effect of the feature when triggered and will also recognize the effect of the trigger within equity. The standard is effective for public companies for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted. The Company adopted this new standard on January 1, 2019 and did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

  16  

 

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, “Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718)”: Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. This ASU was issued to expend the scope of Topic 718 to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees. Previously, these awards were recorded at the fair value of consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued and were measured at the earlier of the commitment date of the date performance was completed. The amendments in this ASU require nonemployee share-based payment awards to be measured at the grant-date fair value of the equity instrument. ASU 2018-07 was effective for fiscal years, including interim periods within those fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company adopted ASU 2018-07 effective on October 1, 2019 and it did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-13, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820).” This standard modifies disclosure requirements related to fair value measurement and is effective for all entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted. Implementation on a prospective or retrospective basis varies by specific disclosure requirement. The standard also allows for early adoption of any removed or modified disclosures upon issuance while delaying adoption of the additional disclosures until their effective date. The Company is currently assessing the impact of adopting this standard on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, “Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (Topic 740)”. This standard simplifies the accounting for income taxes. This standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted for all entities. The Company is currently assessing the impact of adopting this standard on its consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 9 DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

Effective January 1, 2019, an equity-linked financial instrument with a down round feature that otherwise is not required to be classified as a liability under the guidance in Topic 480 is evaluated under the guidance in Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, to determine whether it meets the definition of a derivative. If it meets that definition, the instrument (or embedded feature) is evaluated to determine whether it is indexed to an entity’s own stock as part of the analysis of whether it qualifies for a scope exception from derivative accounting. Generally, for warrants and conversion options embedded in financial instruments that are deemed to have a debt host (assuming the underlying shares are readily convertible to cash or the contract provides for net settlement such that the embedded conversion option meets the definition of a derivative), the existence of a down round feature results in an instrument not being considered indexed to an entity’s own stock. This results in a reporting entity being required to classify the freestanding financial instrument or the bifurcated conversion option as a liability, which the entity must measure at fair value initially and at each subsequent reporting date.

 

However, due to a recognition of tainting, due to variable conversion price on some of the convertible notes, all convertible notes are considered to have a derivative liability, therefore the Company accounted for these Notes under ASC Topic 815-15 “Embedded Derivative.”  The derivative component of the obligation is initially valued and classified as a derivative liability with an offset to discounts on convertible debt. Discounts are amortized to interest expense over the respective term of the related note. In determining the indicated value of the convertible note issued, the Company used the Binomial Options Pricing Model with a risk-free interest rate of ranging from 0.05% to 2.63%, volatility ranging from 84.63% to 243.22%, trading prices ranging from $0.028 per share to $0.41 per share and a conversion price ranging from $0.03 per share to $0.10 per share.

As a result of the application of ASC No. 815, the fair value of the ratchet feature related to convertible debt and warrants is summarized as follow: 

 

Balance as of December 31, 2019           $ 7,817,081  
Initial             90,000
Change in Derivative Values             103,657  
Conversion of debt-reclass to APIC             -0-  
Balance as of March 31, 2020         $ 8,010,738  

 

The Company recorded the debt discount to the extent of the gross proceeds raised, and expensed immediately the remaining fair value of the derivative liability, as it exceeded the gross proceeds of the note.  

 

The Company recorded initial derivative liabilities of $90,000 and $235,000 for the new notes issued for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

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

 

Business Overview

 

PART I

 

Item 1. Business.

 

Overview

 

Kaya Holdings, Inc., “KAYS” or the “Company” a Delaware corporation, is a vertically integrated legal marijuana enterprise that produces, distributes, and/or sells a full range of premium cannabis products including flower, oils, vape cartridges and cannabis infused confections, baked goods and beverages through a fully integrated group of subsidiaries and companies supporting highly distinctive brands.

KAYS is a veteran of the global legal cannabis industry, with more than six years of operational experience. KAYS is the first U.S. publicly traded company to operate a legal marijuana dispensary, as well as the first to vertically integrate by adding cultivation and manufacturing.

 

The Company’s business strategy seeks to achieve four fundamentals objectives:

 

· maintaining direct access to customers (to own the relationship with end-users);

 

· effecting vertical integration to control the supply chain (to control cost, selection and quality);

 

· introducing strong brands in tradition and innovative categories (to control asset development); and

 

· creating the capacity to expand nationally and internationally as regulations and opportunities permit.

 

 

Kaya Holdings currently operates three majority-owned subsidiaries, each responding to various demands and opportunities in the cannabis industry, to aid in the execution of these objectives:

 

Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc.

 

Marijuana Holdings Americas, Inc. (“MJAI”), incorporated in 2014, operates the Company’s U.S. based cannabis operations including its Kaya Shack™ retail brand and the Kaya Farms™ cultivation brand.

 

After an evaluation of several factors including reputation for cannabis excellence, costs of entry, learning opportunity, and ease of regulatory structure, the Company selected Oregon as its point-of-entry into the legal cannabis sector where it commenced operations in Oregon in July 2014. Oregon is universally recognized for its excellence in cannabis cultivation and is part of the famed “Green Triangle” of expert cannabis cultivation that also includes Northern California. Having Oregon as the Company’s learning ground has allowed the Company to combine “traditional” methods of cannabis cultivation with modern agriculture techniques.

 

The Company’s US operations are currently focused in Oregon, where all of the Company’s operations are licensed by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (the “OLCC’), which has jurisdiction over legal medical and recreational cannabis grow, production and retail operations. The Company has three active OLCC Marijuana Retailer Licenses, each of which allow for one brick-and-mortar physical dispensary location as well as unlimited delivery operations tied to the geographic location of the fixed based licensed operations. KAYS currently operates two Kaya Shack™ retail outlets (one in South Salem and one in Portland), and is in the process of targeting its third license to operate a Kaya Farm Store and Delivery Hub to service the Southern Oregon Market.

 

The Company has developed its own proprietary Kaya Farms™ strains of cannabis, which it grows and produces (together with edibles and other cannabis products) at its 12,000 square foot Eugene, Oregon Sunstone Farms Indoor Cannabis Grow, Processing & Cannaceutical Facility which KAYS acquired in October 2018 and is presently conducting limited operations under a Management Agreement with Sunstone farms. Pending either transfer of the licenses by the OLCC to the Company, or through the eventual acquisition and transfer of other existing OLCC Marijuana Production and Processing licenses, KAYS intends to build out the facility and ramp up to full production.

  39  

 

 

Additionally, the Company also owns a 26-acre parcel in Lebanon, Linn County, Oregon, which it purchased in August 2017 on which it intends to construct a cannabis cultivation complex, which will initially consist of an 85,000-square foot Kaya Farms™ Greenhouse Grow and Production Facility. The Company has received county zoning approvals for the complex, and is currently awaiting OLCC Licensure approvals to begin construction of this facility.

 

Kaya Brands USA

 

Kaya Brands USA, Inc. (“KBUS”) was recently incorporated to manage and leverage the intellectual property associated with the Kaya family of brands and seek out US based projects and ventures to enhance shareholder value associated with their development.

 

KBUS presently manages 18 proprietary brands formulated and developed by the Company which includes the Kaya Shack™ retail brand, the Kaya Farms™ cultivation brand, and the Kaya Gear™ apparel brand, as well as a host of carefully developed cannabis and CBD products that include cannabis extracts and concentrates, vape cartridges, chocolates, gummies and chews, topicals and creams, beverages, foods, and cannaceuticals.

 

Kaya Brands International and International Plans for Expansion

  

Kaya has recently implemented a strategic shift away from the U.S. cannabis market, its initial intended focus, placing all emphasis on international opportunities and brand extensions. Thus, KAYS has developed an exciting international growth program with the potential for strategic position and growth, all the while remaining prepared for the eventuality of a more inviting U.S. market.

 

Kaya Brands International, Inc. (“KBI”) was incorporated in late 2019 to serve as the Company’s vehicle for expansion into worldwide cannabis markets. KBI is seeking to leverage the other product brands for development of the Kaya Shack™ retail and Kaya Farms™ brands in Europe and elsewhere as opportunities permit. Projects currently under development include licensing of the Kaya Shack™ retail brand for franchising in Canada and licensing of the Kaya Farms™ brand to develop cultivation projects in Greece, Israel and other potential locations.

 

This segregation of US and foreign based activities would allow for KAYS to eventually have KBI listed on a recognized securities exchange such as the OTCQX, NASDAQ or NYSE in the US, the Canadian Securities Exchange or “CSE” in Canada (a Canadian Exchange that has proven to be an excellent source of new institutional and retail investment capital and liquidity for both Canadian and U.S.-based OTC cannabis stocks) or other such international exchange that would allow KBI to access additional capital not currently available through US over-the counter (“OTC”) markets.

 

KAYS intends to maintain a majority ownership of KBI, but is also working on plans to issue a dividend of common shares in KBI to shareholders of record at a date to be determined by the Board of Directors of KAYS

 

Additionally, KAYS intends to structure KBI’s participation in projects that would lead to these projects eventually seeking their own public company status and corresponding issuance of securities which could potentially significantly enhance the value of KAYS/KBI’s investment and possibly lead to dividends for KAYS/KBI’s shareholders. There can be no assurance given as to whether or when KAYS will be able to do so, or it would ultimately be successful in increasing shareholder value.

The Global Cannabis Industry

 

New Frontier Data estimates the existing global demand for cannabis to be $344.4 billion USD, using consumption levels and market prices to reach their estimate. The illicit market, with the exception of the relatively few countries that regulate and license cultivation or importation of cannabis, meets the vast majority of global demand for cannabis.

 

There are an estimated 263 million people globally who can be classified as cannabis consumers, demonstrating significant demand for the medical, wellness, and recreational uses of cannabis. The strength of demand varies by region and depends heavily on the status of legalization, levels of social acceptance, and access to cannabis. There are an estimated 1.2 billion people worldwide suffering from medical conditions for which cannabis has shown therapeutic value.

 

There are currently 55 countries with legalized cannabis for medical use. The regulatory framework varies by country and may differ in rules for qualifying conditions, physician participation, production and processing, accepted delivery systems, insurance payment participation, and potency permitted. The stringency of the rules typically has a significant impact on the size, growth, and reach of each program.

 

Canada and Uruguay are the first two nations with legal recreational cannabis, with a few other nations set to follow, including South Africa, Georgia and Mexico. The aim of the legal programs is to transition the illicit market to the legal, regulated and taxable markets.  Canadian companies were the first to create global cannabis infrastructure and are poised to compete with other emerging export centers, including Israel, Greece and Colombia.

 

The United States has been the global leader in cannabis innovation, including new genetics, cultivation techniques, derivative products, and delivery methods. U.S. based companies are beginning to move into the global arena.

 

The opportunity represented by legal cannabis is significant, but many countries limit the number of legal participants and have regulatory policies that are still evolving, leading to high overall risk and barriers to entry.

 

As governments in newly legalized markets lay the foundations for their nascent industries, many lack or do not wish to regulate domestic cultivation and production activity. This forms the foundation for a vibrant international cannabis import-export sector.

 

North America

 

North America, according to New Frontier Data, represents a total cannabis demand (legal & illicit) valued at $86 billion USD.

 

The United States and Canada have been leading the global legal cannabis movement, which in turn impacts the way governments worldwide are structuring the regulation of legal cannabis in their own countries.

 

Canada

 

Canada is the first G-7 nation to fully legalize cannabis for medical and recreational use. The legal structure has given rise to large Canadian cannabis companies that have achieved high valuations, which they have leveraged to purchase supply chain companies and invest in infrastructure projects to produce cannabis at costs lower than those in Canada.

 

To date, Canadian companies report exporting only several thousands of pounds of cannabis to more than 20 different countries, collectively – demonstrating the early stage of development of the global cannabis market, and by extension the remaining opportunities.

  41  

 

 

The United States

 

 New Frontier Data forecasts that the legal U.S. markets will generate nearly $13 billion in legal sales in 2019, growing to over $20 billion by 2022.

 

Cannabis remains federally illegal in the United States, even as support for legal recreational cannabis remains above 60% in most reputable polls. Regardless of the federal status of cannabis, currently 33 U.S. states have enacted laws legalizing some form of medical cannabis, and 10 states and the District of Colombia have legalized recreational use cannabis. The United States has been the global leader in cannabis innovation, including new genetics, cultivation techniques, derivative products, and delivery methods.

 

States with some type of legal medical cannabis laws include Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, New Hampshire, Louisiana, Rhode Island, Minnesota, Missouri, Maryland, Montana, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia. States permitted the sales of recreational or “adult-use” cannabis are Alaska, California, Colorado, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington. The District of Colombia (Washington D.C.) also permits adult-use cannabis.

 

Europe

 

New Frontier Data estimates the European cannabis market (legal & illicit) generates $69 billion USD annually, with France, Italy and Spain having the greatest number of cannabis consumers, and Germany with the most robust medical program to date. 

 

There are almost 30 European countries that permit some form of legal medical cannabis including, France, Italy, Germany, United Kingdom, Spain, Poland, Czech Republic, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Israel, Luxembourg, North Macedonia, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Switzerland, Turkey, Ireland, Lithuania and Portugal. The European Union requires its member countries to enforce the European Union Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), which detail the production standards for medicinal products. These standards are typically stringent and can be costly for cannabis companies.

 

Israel and Greece

 

Israel has a small population but a long established history of legal medical cannabis development. It continues as a leader with years in the development of cannabis pharmaceuticals, and together with Greece the 2 are projected to form a “Silicon Valley” network for the development of medical cannabis production to service the European Markets and beyond.

In the event that the license transfer at the Eugene facility and/or the licensing approval and construction timeline of the Lebanon facility is delayed or experiences difficulties, the Company has sourced other alternatives to expedite the release of the brands and will update shareholders accordingly as to revised brand rollout dates (if any).

The Kaya Shack™ Brand

 

 

Kaya Holdings operates the Kaya Shack™ brand of legal medical and recreational retail marijuana retail stores. Kaya Holdings operates two recreational marijuana retail outlets and medical marijuana dispensaries in Oregon under the Kaya Shack™ brand.

 

Additionally, Kaya Holdings maintains an active third OLCC Marijuana Retail License which it is seeking to move to its Eugene, Oregon Kaya Farms Indoor Production and Processing Facility so that the Company may offer a “Kaya Farm Store” and also serve as a retail delivery hub for Eugene, Oregon.

 

Dubbed by the mainstream press as the “Starbucks of Marijuana” after our first outlet opened in July 2014, our operating concept is simple: to deliver a consistent customer experience (quality products, fair prices and superior customer service) to a broad and diverse base of customers. Kaya Shack™ meets the quality needs of the “marijuana enthusiast”, the comfort and atmosphere of all including “soccer moms” and the price sensitivities of casual smokers.

 

The Kaya Shack™ brand communicates positive thinking and joy, with signs adorning the walls that read “It’s a Good Day to have a Good Day,” “Some of our Happiest Days Haven’t Even Happened Yet,” and our signature “Be Kind.”

 

Kaya Shack™ retail outlets are open 7 days a week- Monday through Saturday from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm, and Sunday 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM. Operations follow an operational manual that details procedures for 18 areas of operation including safety, compliance, store opening, store closing, merchandising, handling of cash, inventory control, product intake, store appearance and employee conduct.

 

In compliance with regulations, all marijuana and marijuana infused products sold through our stores are quality tested by independent labs to assure adherence to strict quality and OLCC regulations.

 

The Company is exploring opportunities to expand its operations beyond Oregon by replicating its Kaya Shack™ brand retail outlets through franchising in other states where recreational cannabis use is legal or expected to become legal in the near term, as well as in Canada, where it is legal nationwide. KAYS also is targeting opening corporate owned marijuana production and processing facilities to support the envisioned franchised outlets, and to both maintain quality control and offer customers a consistent customer experience while reducing costs of goods to franchisees.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  46  

 

Kaya Shack™ Retail Outlets

 

 

All stores feature a check out stand wrapped to feature the Company’s proprietary brand of pre-rolls, Kaya Buddies. The Buddies program is an exciting and popular pre-roll offering, featuring a wide selection (15-15 strains of pre-rolls) and featuring our special Kaya Saying in each Buddies tube. A glass display case showcases at least 25 strains of marijuana flower, which the stores serve to customers “deli style”, weighing straight from the jar to the customer’s take-out tube. An additional display case with a varied selection of oils, concentrates and topicals rounds out the cannabis product display.

  

  47  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The stores also feature standing display cases with cannabis intended glassware under the Company’s brand Really Happy Glass, as well as a rack of proprietary t-shirt designs marketed under the Company brand Kaya Gear. The store also has a hospitality area that offers free water, coffee, tea and hot cocoa. As required by law, all products containing marijuana are either behind locked glass or behind the counter and out of customer reach.

I. Kaya Shack™ , 1719 SE Hawthorne Blvd., Portland, Oregon.                      

 

Our first Kaya Shack™ OLCC licensed marijuana store (located in the heart of the trendy Hawthorne district in southeast Portland, the “Greenwich Village” of the West Coast) opened for business July 03, 2014. The store is located next door to a cell phone repair shop, and near to Devil’s Dill restaurant and No Fun pub. There are also a McMenamins restaurant, tattoo parlor, convenience store, hair/nail salon and a soccer sports bar. The area around the shop is mixed use (commercial and residential) and has a footprint of approximately 700 square feet and is the model for the Company’s small urban shops.

 

 

 

  49  

 

  II. Kaya Shack ™ Marijuana Superstore, South Salem, Oregon.                                

 

 

 

Our second Kaya Shack™ OLCC licensed marijuana store (located in South Salem, Oregon) opened for business on October 17, 2015. The store is located in a strip mall alongside a Caesar’s Pizza, Aaron’s furniture, a convenience store, a tanning salon, and a nail salon. The plaza also has a Subway, a sports bar and a laundromat. The area around the shop is primarily commercial with residential complexes under construction and has a footprint of approximately 2,100 square feet and serves as the model for the Company’s superstores featuring larger display areas and a soon-to-be-opened Pakalolo Juice Company infused fresh fruit smoothies stand.

 

 

  50  

 

Kaya Shack™ Car Fleet and Home Delivery

 

 

 

 

The Company is licensed by the OLCC for home delivery for all three of its retail licenses and has a fleet of 4 Kaya Cars featuring the Company’s branding logos outfitted with safes and security equipment. We have begun to offer deliver within the geographic areas of Portland and Salem, and are looking to expand this offering to Eugene if we are able to get an approval on the transfer of our third retailer license and open up the Kaya Farm Store at our Eugene, Oregon Kaya Farms Indoor Grow, Processing & Cannaceutical Production Facility.

 

The Company has developed the website www.kayadelivers.com to advance the growth of its delivery service and to offer pre-ordering for curbside pickup in light of the coronavirus pandemic to better serve our customers.

 

We expect delivery to extend our visibility, assist in building brand awareness, and allow the Company to service a broader geographic territory.

Kaya Farms™

 

Lebanon, Linn County, Oregon Marijuana Grow and Manufacturing Complex

 

  

In early 2015, KAYS commenced its own medical marijuana grow operations for the cultivation and harvesting of legal marijuana thereby becoming the first publicly traded U.S. company to own a majority interest in a vertically integrated legal marijuana enterprise in the United States. Since that time KAYS has operated various grow facilities to feed the Kaya Shack Supply Chain, and in August 2017, KAYS acquired its first property for a large scale facility- a 26-acre parcel in Lebanon, Linn County, Oregon, where we intend to develop an 85,000-square foot Kaya Farms™ facility.

  52  

 

 

 

  

We filed for zoning and land use approval in early 2018, and after numerous regulatory challenges and delays, we finally received zoning and land use approval in early 2019 to build on the property. We are presently in the final planning stages and are awaiting the culmination of the OLCC licensing process to begin construction.

 

Management believes that the acquisition and development of the property will position the Company for future growth and expansion, including increased Marijuana Canopy production to the maximum extent allowed by law through use of both greenhouse and outdoor grows.

 

Under present laws the property can easily deliver 6-8,000 pounds of cannabis each year; if future regulations permit this capacity could easily be increased to over 100,000 pounds of cannabis per year.

 

When Federal Prohibition of marijuana ends and national and international cannabis trade can begin, we believe that Oregon is uniquely positioned to become America’s “pot basket” due to its superior climate and state history involving generations of Oregonian Cannabis Growers; ideal weather + extensive generational knowledge = superior, lower cost cannabis products for export.

Kaya Farms Indoor Marijuana Grow, Processing & Cannaceutical Production Facility

 

 

On October 23, 2018 KAYS announced that it had concluded the purchase of the real property and associated equipment utilized by the Eugene, Oregon based Sunstone Farms grow and manufacturing facility, which is licensed by the OLCC for both the production (growing) of medical and recreational marijuana flower and the processing of cannabis concentrates/extracts/edibles.

 

The purchase includes a 12,000 square foot building housing an indoor grow facility, as well as equipment for growing and extraction activity. The facility can produce in excess of 800 pounds cannabis flower annually as currently outfitted, as well as a substantial amount of manufactured extracts and related cannabis products.

 

The purchase price of $1.3 million for the OLCC licensed marijuana production and processing facility, consisting of the building and equipment was paid for by the issuance of 12 million shares of KAYS restricted stock to the seller at closing. The shares carry a lock-up-restriction that allows for their staged eligibility for resale over a 61-month period from the date of the purchase of the facility by KAYS. Additionally, the seller purchased 2.5 million restricted shares for $250,000 in cash in a private transaction with the Company. The proceeds from the sale of those shares were and are being used for acquisition related expenses, transitional operating costs and facility capital improvements with respect to the production and processing facility we purchased.

 

KAYS intends to utilize the processing facilities to grow their own top-shelf, connoisseur-grade marijuana flower, produce various brands of oils, edibles, concentrates

and extracts, and develop medical grade laboratory facilities for the production of a proprietary Kaya Cannaceuticals™ line of both CBD and CBD/THC products for the health, skincare and medical industries.

 

The Company is presently conducting limited grow and facility maintenance operations under a Management Agreement with Sunstone Farms, the current licensee.

Kaya Buddie™ Strain Specific Cannabis Cigarettes

 

 

 

  

In 2016 the Company introduced a signature line of strain-specific connoisseur-grade, pre-rolled cannabis cigarettes branded as “Kaya Buddies™”. Kaya Buddies™ cannabis cigarettes have been very well received by medical patients and recreational users, with the Company selling over 100,000 Kaya Buddies™ since launching the brand in January 2016. The brand, marketed under the tagline “Buds with Benefits”, features over 50 different strains of connoisseur-grade, high quality cannabis and proprietary specialty blends. Many cannabis retailers produce prerolls, but none that we know of offer strain specific preroll made from the buds of the flower.

Kaya Brands International

 

 

After over five years of conducting “touch the plant” U.S. cannabis operations inside the strict regulatory confines of a public company, KAYS has formed Kaya Brands International, Inc. (“Kaya International” or “KBI”), to leverage its experience and expand into worldwide cannabis markets. KBI’s current operations and initiatives include Canada and Greece, with additional areas under consideration for Israel.

 

 

Canada

 

 

 

 

 

 

Canadian Franchising:  KAYS has targeted Canada for its first international sale and operation of Kaya Shack™ cannabis store franchises. KAYS has entered into an area representation agreement with The Franchise Academy (a leading Canadian Franchise Development and Sales Group) to implement the Kaya Shack™ Retail Cannabis Store program in Canada (the only G7 country that has legalized both medical and recreational cannabis production, sale and use on a national level). The agreement targets 75-100 Kaya Shack™ Cannabis Retail locations throughout Canada through a multi-year structured rollout, subject to licensing and market conditions.

 

The Franchise Academy (http://www.franchiseacademy.ca) and its founder Shawn Saraga, is a member and national sponsor of the Canadian Franchise Association. With over 15 years of industry experience and having successfully closed over 700 franchise agreements and leases across Canada, the Franchise Academy has the knowledge, expertise, network and dedication to assist select franchisors enter the Canadian market.

 

Additionally, KAYS has retained Toronto, Canada based law firm of Garfinkle Biderman, LLP to prepare the Franchise Disclosure Documents and related items for the sale of Kaya Shack™ cannabis store franchises in Canada. We expect the franchise sale and placement effort throughout Canada to progress over the next 3-24 months. KAYS plans to ultimately expand its franchise operations to the U.S., as regulations and laws permit.

Greece

 

 

 

Kaya Kannabis is a joint venture project cultivation-for-export cannabis-farming project of Athens based Greekkannabis PC (“GKC”) and U.S. based Kaya Brands International, Inc (“KBI”), a majority owned subsidiary of Kaya Holdings, Inc. GKC is a recently formed Athens, Greece based cannabis company with deep ties in the Greek business community and a strong presence in the academic and agricultural communities. The alliance is designed to combine the business acumen and extensive European network of GKC with the broad cannabis industry and cannabis cultivation experience of Kaya Holdings.

 

On October 31, 2019 KAYS entered into an initial Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) setting forth an agreement in principle for KBI to acquire a 50% ownership interest in GKC. The MOU sets forth an agreement in principle, pursuant to which in consideration for KBI providing the necessary expertise related to cannabis cultivation, processing, brand development and other matters, KBI will have the right to acquire a 50% ownership interest in GKC by reimbursing GKC for 50% of its license application costs (with allowances for KBI’s expenses as well).

 

There are three licenses required for the Facility- an “Installation License” (which is the equivalent to a license to construct the facility), the “Operating License” (available only after construction is completed), and the “Production & Distribution License” (available from the EOF - the Greek equivalent to the U.S. FDA - once production can be evaluated).

 

Consummation of the transaction contemplated by the MOU is subject to, among other customary conditions, satisfactory completion by KBI of its due diligence review of GKC, the drafting, execution and delivery of definitive transaction documentation and final license approval and issuance by the Greek government.

 

Project Description

 

GKC has entered into an agreement to purchase 15 acres of land outside of Athens in Thebes, Greece, approximately 75 minutes from Athens plans to establish the Kaya Kannabis Cultivation and Processing Facility. The region offers optimal growing conditions for cannabis and will enable the Company to produce exceptional cannabis economically.

 

The project location provides:

 

§ 15 acres of flat land, with additional land available.
§ Full exposure to sunlight, without shadows cast.
§ Access to sufficient water, with operating wells.
§ Access to sufficient electricity.
§ Access to logistic routes.
§ Proximity to sufficient work force, both professional & labor.
§ Easy to secure (for security & safety).
§ Zoned for cannabis production.
§ Land is completely cleared and ready for construction.

 

Project Management envisages twelve 35,000 sq. feet (approximately 3,500 sq. meters) of light deprivation greenhouses situated on fifteen acres of land, and supported by an additional 50,000 sq. feet (approximately 5,000 sq. meters) building for workspace, storage and administrative offices.

 

Under this model the farm will support 9,360 plants per greenhouse (for a total plant count of 112,320 plants per harvest). There will be four harvests each year for a total of 449,280 cannabis plants harvested annually. The Company estimates total farm production, once completely constructed and operating at full capacity, to be at a minimum of approximately 225,000 pounds of premium grade cannabis annually.

 

Current Licensing & Project Status

 

On February 18, 2020 the parties entered into an agreement to extend the date of the option until June 1, 2020 as GKC the first stage of the licensing had not yet been completed and the Parties due diligence process had not yet been completed.

 

On April 22, 2020 KAYS/KBI received confirmation from their Greek Counsel that the Greek Government had awarded the crucial Installation License for the project.

 

On May 22, 2020 the Parties entered into a second agreement to extend the date of the option until September 30, 2020 to allow for final due diligence to be performed, and a final Shareholders Agreement (to govern the Shareholders’ relations) and Operating Agreement (to govern how GKC will be run and operate) to be executed.

Government Regulation

 

We are subject to general business regulations and laws, as well as regulations and laws directly applicable to our operations. As we continue to expand the scope of our operations, the application of existing laws and regulations could include matters such as pricing, advertising, consumer protection, quality of products, and intellectual property ownership. In addition, we will also be subject to new laws and regulations directly applicable to our activities.

 

Any existing or new legislation applicable to us could expose us to substantial liability, including significant expenses necessary to comply with such laws and regulations, which could hinder or prevent the growth of our business.

 

Federal, state and local laws and regulations governing legal recreational and medical marijuana use are broad in scope and are subject to evolving interpretations, which could require us to incur substantial costs associated with compliance. In addition, violations of these laws or allegations of such violations could disrupt our planned business and adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations. In addition, it is possible that additional or revised federal, state and local laws and regulations may be enacted in the future governing the legal marijuana industry. There can be no assurance that we will be able to comply with any such laws and regulations and its failure to do so could significantly harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

Competition

 

The legal marijuana sector is rapidly growing and the Company faces significant competition in the operation of retail outlets, MMDs and grow facilities. Many of these competitors will have far greater experience, more extensive industry contacts and greater financial resources than the Company. There can be no assurance that we can adequately compete to succeed in our business plan.

 

Employees

 

As of the date as of this Report, our Oregon operations have a total of 12-15 part-time store employees including budtenders, trimmers, growers, and4 full-time employees, consisting of the Senior Vice President of Cannabis Operations, the Vice President of Marketing and Brand development, and 2 store managers. Additionally, we engage several consultants to assist with daily duties and business plan implementation and execution. Additional employees will be hired and other consultants engaged in the future as our business expands.

 

Potential Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on our Business

 

The adverse public health developments and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States and overseas could adversely affect the Company’s customers and suppliers as a result of quarantines, facility closures and logistics restrictions in connection with the outbreak. More broadly, the COVID-19 pandemic could potentially lead to an extended economic downturn, which would likely decrease spending, adversely affect demand for our products and services, slow our international expansion plans, harm our business, results of operations and financial condition. The Company cannot accurately predict the effect the COVID-19 pandemic will have on the Company.

We had revenues of $235,311 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to revenues of $263,758 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease in revenue is due to the normal fluctuation in the market.

Our cost of goods sold for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $48,887 compared to cost of goods sold of $145,512 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease in cost of goods sold was due to normal fluctuation in the wholesale cannabis market and revised pricing policies.

 

Salaries and Wages

 

Salaries and Wages decreased to $141,680 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to $146,455 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease in salaries and wages was due to normal decrease in labor cost.

Selling, general and administrative decreased to $199,558 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to $243,023 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. This decrease reflects the fact that some of the expenses associated with this category have decreased over time.

 

Professional Fees

 

Professional fees were $175,306 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, as compared to $45,850 for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Interest expense and debt amortization expense decreased to $276,226 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 from $473,811 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. These decreases were due to lesser debt incurred over the past 12 months for expansion of our operations.

 

Derivative Liabilities Expense

 

Derivative liabilities expense decreased to $28,887 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 from $446,894 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. These decreases were due to change in stock price as well as the volatility factors used in the derivative calculations.

The majority of our net income during the three-month period ending March 31, 2019 was a result of the derivative liabilities associated with our Convertible Debt and a reduction in our stock price as well as the less volatility factors used in the derivative calculations.

While the January 2018 Financing Agreement granted the HNW Investor the right to acquire additional January 2018 Notes by certain deadlines if additional funding was provided, no additional $0.10 Notes were purchased until the January 2018 Financing Agreement was amended in December, 2018 to allow the HNW investor the right to purchase an additional $25,000 of January 2018 Notes, which are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.05 per share (the “$0.05 Notes ”).

Use of Proceeds

 

The proceeds from the offer and sale of the $2.1M Notes, the May 2017 Notes and the January 2018 notes, as well as any other financing transactions that the Company may enter into are and will be used to fund the our growth plan, including the development, operation and expansion of our Kaya Shack™ and Kaya Farms™ operations in Oregon, the development of our new Kaya Shack™ branded cannabis products, and the groundwork required to initiate our planned expansion through Kaya Brands International initiatives in Canada, Greece and Israel.

 

Plan of Operations

 

Management believes that consummation of the proceeds received and expected to be received from the above described financings as well as any other financing transactions that it may enter into, combined with existing and anticipated revenues, has alleviated the Company’s financial difficulties to a significant extent and will allow the Company to meet its anticipated working capital needs for a period of between twelve and eighteen months from the date of this report. However, there can be no assurance that the balance of the $7.75 million financing will be completed, or that management’s belief will be correct and that the Company will not sooner require additional financing to meet its working capital needs prior to achieving profitability or positive cash flow. Moreover, we may not be successful in raising additional capital on commercially reasonable terms, if and when needed, in which case our business, financial condition, cash flows and results of operations may be materially and adversely affected.

 

Note Conversion

 

No Notes have been converted for the period January 1, 2020 through the date of this report.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Under the direction of Chief Executive Officer and Acting Chief Financial Officer (our principal executive, financial and accounting officer), we evaluated our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2020. Our Chairman and President, who is our principal, executive, financial and accounting officer, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of March 31, 2020.

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that the information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (our principal executive, financial and accounting officer), as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and in reaching a reasonable level of assurance, management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

 

As required by SEC Rule 13a15(b), we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (our principal executive, financial and accounting officer), of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the first fiscal quarter covered by this report. Based on the foregoing, our Chief Executive Officer (our principal executive, financial and accounting officer) concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. It should be noted that the design of any system of controls is based in part upon 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, regardless of how remote. 

Changes in Internal Controls

 

There was no change in our internal controls or in other factors that could affect these controls during the quarter ended March 31, 2020, that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting. We do not anticipate any changes to our internal controls at this time.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

As previously reported in our periodic reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, in the fourth quarter of 2018, KAYS concluded the purchase of the Eugene, Oregon based Sunstone Farms grow and manufacturing facility, which is licensed by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (the “ OLCC ”) for both the production (growing) of medical and recreational marijuana flower and the processing of cannabis concentrates/extracts/edibles. The purchase included a 12,000 square foot building housing an indoor grow facility, as well as equipment for growing and extraction activity. The facility can produce in excess of 800 pounds cannabis flower annually as currently outfitted, as well as a substantial amount of manufactured extracts and related cannabis products. KAYS entered into a management agreement with the holder of existing OLCC licenses (“ Sunstone ”) to oversee operations at the facility pending transfer of the license to KAYS, which were aware would be an extended and cumbersome process.

At all times since we began the transaction process and on an ongoing basis since the transaction was concluded, we have worked in close cooperation with the OLCC at each stage to both document the transaction, renew the existing licenses and transfer the licenses to us and submitted a substantial volume of paperwork to the OLCC with respect to the foregoing. We communicated with the OLCC on numerous occasions and requested guidance as to how to legally structure and complete the transfer of the licenses to us.

In November 2018, we were notified that that the OLCC was doing a Compliance Review, pending the requested transfer of the licenses (which is normal practice) and that they may have issues with how certain aspects of the transaction were structured.

We asked the OLCC for guidance with respect to interim operation of the facility and were advised to continue operating as usual. Subsequently, in February and March of 2019, the OLCC issued Conditional Letters of authority so that the facility could continue operations for a period not to exceed one year from the dates issued, pending the Sunstone License renewals and processing of the requested license transfers to KAYS.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in mid-April 2019, we were advised by Sunstone that it had been notified that the OLCC was proposing that Sunstone’s licenses be cancelled, claiming that that Sunstone had not filed paperwork correctly with respect to the transaction or its historical ownership.

Sunstone’s attorney has filed a request for a hearing which we have been advised by the OLCC could take over a year to occur and resolve due to the extensive number of licensing matters being processed. A cursory review of the resolution of other sale-related compliance matters listed on the OLCC’s website shows that it is not atypical to for the OLCC to seek revocation of a license, but that often the settlement of that matter includes the sale and transfer of the license which, is what we are seeking. For the record, neither KAYS nor our Oregon OLCC licensed entities were named in OLCC action.

Sunstone’s attorney has filed a request for a hearing which we were initially advised by the OLCC could take over a year to occur and resolve due to the extensive number of licensing matters being processed. A hearing is currently set for August 4-5, 2020, but we are unsure as to whether the hearing will occur at that time due to logistical complications with the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The Company notes that in a new and emerging regulatory environment for legal cannabis production and sale, licensing issues such as the present one periodically arise. In fact, as previously reported, the Company has encountered such issues in connection with its Portland, Oregon retail outlet and its planned Lebanon, Oregon grow and production operation, all of which were satisfactorily resolved in the Company’s favor. Accordingly, the Company is cooperating with Sunstone and the OLCC with respect to this matter and is optimistic that once the extensive record of paperwork submitted to and consultation with the OLCC has been reviewed, it will be able secure transfer of the OLCC licenses.
