NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

August 31, 2022

 

1. NATURE OF BUSINESS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Nature of Business

 

Unique Logistics International, Inc. (the “Company” or “Unique”) is a global logistics and freight forwarding company. The Company currently operates via its wholly owned subsidiaries, Unique Logistics International (NYC), LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“UL NYC”) and Unique Logistics International (BOS) Inc, a Massachusetts corporation (“UL BOS”) and (collectively the “UL US Entities”). The Company provides a range of international logistics services that enable its customers to outsource sections of their supply chain process. This range of services can be categorized as follows:

 

  Air Freight
  Ocean Freight
  Customs Brokerage and Compliance
  Warehousing and Distribution
  Order Management

 

Liquidity

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis. Substantial doubt about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern exists when conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, indicate that it is probable that the entity will be unable to meet its obligations as they become due within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued.

 

As of August 31, 2022, the Company reported working capital of approximately $6.5 million compared with $4.2 million working capital as of May 31, 2022. The Company’s Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”) contribution to working capital was $5.1 million and cash flow from operations $0.3 million during the quarter ended August 31, 2022. The Company has adequate cash availability through the TBK Facility.

 

Since its inception, the Company has experienced significant business growth. To fund such growth, operating capital was initially provided by third party investors through the sale of Convertible Notes which were subsequently exchanged into convertible securities. Preferred shares are more beneficial to the Company because they do not require cash repayments. Due to the antidilution provision imbedded in the certain of the convertible securities, these provisions resulted in an embedded derivative and the Company recorded a long-term liability. As of the quarter ended August 31, 2022, and the year ended May 31, 2022, this liability was $11.8 million and $12.4 million, respectively. This liability is recorded as a long-term liability due to its future settlement in common stock on the balance sheet and is being adjusted to market on each of the subsequent reporting periods.

 

F- 5

 

 

While we continue to execute our strategic plan, management is focused on managing cash and monitoring our liquidity position. We have implemented a number of initiatives to conserve our liquidity position including activities such as increasing credit facilities, when needed, reducing cost of debt, controlling general and administrative expenditures and improving collection processes. Many of the aspects of the plan involve management’s judgments and estimates that include factors that could be beyond our control and actual results could differ from our estimates. These and other factors could cause the strategic plan to be unsuccessful which could have a material adverse effect on our operating results, financial condition, and liquidity. Use of operating cash is an indicator that there could be a going concern issue, but based on our evaluation of the Company’s projected cash flows and business performance as of and subsequent to the balance sheet date, management has concluded that the Company’s current cash and cash availability under the TBK Facility as of August 31, 2022, would be sufficient to fund its planned operations for at least one year from the date these consolidated financial statements are issued.

 

COVID-19

 

Covid-19 remains a threat and certain countries, such as China, are still subject to restrictions related to Covid-19. While the threat level has declined to a significant extent in the USA and globally, any resurgence could have a material adverse effect on our business operations, results of operations, cash flows and financial position.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) and include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The unaudited interim financial information furnished herein reflects all adjustments, consisting solely of normal recurring items, which in the opinion of management are necessary to fairly state the financial position of the Company and the results of its operations for the periods presented. This report should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended May 31, 2022. The Company assumes that the users of the interim financial information herein have read or have access to the audited financial statements for the preceding fiscal year and that the adequacy of additional disclosure needed for a fair presentation may be determined in that context. The condensed consolidated balance sheet on May 31, 2022 was derived from audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements of the Company include the accounts of the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries stated in U.S. dollars, the Company’s functional currency. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in the consolidated financial statements.

 

Use of Estimates

 

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

 

Significant estimates inherent in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements include determinations of the useful lives and expected future cash flows of long-lived assets, including intangibles, valuation of assets and liabilities acquired in business combinations, and estimates and assumptions in valuation of debt and equity instruments, including derivative liabilities. In addition, the Company makes significant judgments to recognize revenue – see policy note “Revenue Recognition” below.

 

F- 6

 

 

Fair Value Measurement

 

The Company follows the authoritative guidance that establishes a formal framework for measuring fair values of assets and liabilities in the consolidated financial statements that are already required by generally accepted accounting principles to be measured at fair value. The guidance defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (exit price). The transaction is based on a hypothetical transaction in the principal or most advantageous market considered from the perspective of the market participant that holds the asset or owes the liability.

 

The Company utilizes market data or assumptions that market participants who are independent, knowledgeable, and willing and able to transact would use in pricing the asset or liability, including assumptions about risk and the risks inherent in the inputs to the valuation technique. These inputs can be readily observable, market corroborated or generally unobservable. The Company attempts to utilize valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs.

 

The Company is able to classify fair value balances based on the observability of those inputs. The guidance establishes a formal fair value hierarchy based on the inputs used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 measurements and the lowest priority to level 3 measurements, and accordingly, Level 1 measurement should be used whenever possible.

 

The hierarchy is broken down into three levels based on the reliability of inputs as follows:

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities or published net asset value for alternative investments with characteristics similar to a mutual fund.

 

Level 2 – Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly.

 

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability.

 

The methods used may produce a fair value calculation that may not be indicative of net realizable value or reflective of future fair values. Furthermore, while management believes its valuation methods are appropriate, the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a difference fair value measurement at the reporting date. There were no changes in the Company’s valuation methodologies from the prior year.

 

For purpose of this disclosure, the fair value of a financial instrument is the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced sale or liquidation. The carrying amounts for financial assets and liabilities such as cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable - trade, contract assets, factoring reserve, other prepaid expenses and current assets, accounts payable – trade and other current liabilities, including contract liabilities, convertible notes, promissory notes, all approximate fair value due to their short-term nature as of August 31, 2022 and May 31, 2022. The carrying amount of the long-term debt approximates fair value because the interest rates on these instruments approximate the interest rate on debt with similar terms available to the Company. Lease liabilities approximate fair value based on the incremental borrowing rate used to discount future cash flows. The Company had Level 3 liabilities (See Derivative Liabilities note) as of August 31, 2022. On August 31, 2021, Level 3 derivative liability balances were insignificant. There were no transfers between levels during the reporting period.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable from revenue transactions are based on invoiced prices which the Company expects to collect. In the normal course of business, the Company extends credit to customers that satisfy pre-defined credit criteria. The Company generally does not require collateral to support customer receivables. Accounts receivable - trade, as shown on the consolidated balance sheets, is net of allowances when applicable. An allowance for doubtful accounts is determined through analysis of the aging of accounts receivable at the date of the consolidated financial statements, assessments of collectability based on an evaluation of historic and anticipated trends, the financial condition of the Company’s customers, and an evaluation of the impact of economic conditions. The maximum accounting loss from the credit risk associated with accounts receivable is the amount of the receivable recorded, net of allowance for doubtful accounts. As of August 31, 2022 and May 31, 2022, the Company recorded an allowance for doubtful accounts of approximately $2.7 million.

 

F- 7

 

 

Concentrations

 

Three major customers represented approximately 23.0% of all accounts receivable as of August 31, 2022 and no single customer represented more than 10.0% of total accounts receivable. Revenue from these three major customers as a percentage of the Company’s total revenue was 20.0% for the three months ended August 31, 2022, and no single customer represented more than 10.0% of total revenue.

 

Three major customers represented approximately 21.0% of all accounts receivable as of May 31, 2022 and no single customer represented more than 10.0% of total accounts receivable. Same three customers accounted for 32.0% of total revenue for the three months ended August 31, 2021 with only customer A at 15.0 %, and customers B and C were less than 10.0% each.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

On August 30, 2021, the Company terminated its agreement with an unrelated third party (the “Factor”) for factoring of specific accounts receivable. The factoring under this agreement was treated as a sale in accordance with FASB ASC 860, Transfers and Servicing, and is accounted for as an off-balance sheet arrangement. Proceeds from the transfers reflected the face value of the account less a fee, which is presented in costs and operating expenses on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations in the period the sale occurs. Net funds received are recorded as an increase to cash and a reduction to accounts receivable outstanding in the consolidated balance sheets. The Company reported the cash flows attributable to the sale of receivables to third parties and the cash receipts from collections made on behalf of and paid to third parties, on a net basis as trade accounts receivables in cash flows from operating activities in the Company’s consolidated statements of cash flows. The net principal balance of trade accounts receivable outstanding in the books of the factor under the factoring agreement was $31.7 million as of May 31, 2021. On June 2, 2021 and on August 30, 2021, the Company repurchased all of its factored trade accounts receivables from the Factor, in the amounts of $31.6 million and $1.4 million, respectively, utilizing its TBK Facility.

 

During the factoring agreement in place, the Company acted as the agent on behalf of the Factor for the arrangements and had no significant retained interests or servicing liabilities related to the accounts receivable sold. The agreement provided the Factor with security interests in purchased accounts until the accounts have been repurchased by the Company or paid by the customer. In order to mitigate credit risk related to the Company’s factoring of accounts receivable, the Company may purchase credit insurance, from time to time, for certain factored accounts receivable, resulting in risk of loss being limited to the factored accounts receivable not covered by credit insurance, which the Company does not believe to be significant.

 

During the three months ended August 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company factored accounts receivable invoices totaling approximately none and $4.3 million, respectively, pursuant to the Company’s factoring agreement, representing the face value of the invoices. The Company recognizes factoring costs upon disbursement of funds. The Company did not incur expenses pursuant to the agreements for the three months ended August 31, 2022. The Company incurred expenses totaling approximately $27,000 pursuant to the agreements for the three months ended August 31, 2021. The Company recognizes factoring costs upon disbursement of funds. Factoring expenses are presented in costs and operating expenses on the consolidated statements of operations.

 

Factoring Reserve

 

When an invoice is sold to Factor, the amount received from the Factor is credited to accounts receivable and a reserve is retained, less a fee, by Factor which is debited to “factoring reserve” on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. As of August 31, 2022 and May 31, 2022, the Company did not record a factoring reserve.

 

F- 8

 

 

Factor Recovery

 

In certain instances, the Company receives payment for a factored reserve directly from the customer. In these cases, until the funds are paid to the factor, the Company records the payment as “factor recovery” which is in accrued expenses and other current liabilities on the consolidated balance sheets. As of August 31, 2022 and May 31, 2022, the Company did not record a factor recovery.

 

Recourse Liability

 

Company policy is to do a collectability review of uncollected factored receivables in conjunction with the Factor at each reporting date and assess the need to provide for risk of potential non-collection and resulting recourse.

 

Derivative Liability

 

On December 10, 2021, the Company entered into an amended securities exchange agreement with the holders of convertible notes to exchange all Convertible Notes of the Company into shares of the newly created Convertible Preferred Stock Series C and D. For additional information on the exchange agreement see Note 5, Financing Arrangements.

 

Similar to the existing Convertible Preferred Stock Series A, these preferred stocks featured anti-dilution provision that expire on a certain date. Management has determined the anti-dilution provision embedded in preferred stock Series A, C and D is required to be accounted for separately from the preferred stock as a derivative liability and recorded at fair value. Separation of the anti-dilution option as a derivative liability is required because its economic characteristics are considered more akin to an equity instrument and therefore the anti-dilution option is not considered to be clearly and closely related to the economic characteristics of the preferred stock.

 

The Company has identified and recorded derivative instruments arising from an anti-dilution provision in the Company’s Series A, C and D Preferred Stock. An embedded derivative liability is representing the rights of holders of Convertible Preferred Stock Series A, C and D to receive additional common stock of the Company upon issuance of any additional common stock by the Company prior to qualified financing event as defined in the agreement. Each reporting period, the embedded derivative liability, if material, would be adjusted to reflect fair value at each period end with changes in fair value recorded in the “Change in fair value of embedded derivative liability” financial statement line item of the company’s statements of operations. During the three months ended August 31, 2022, the Company recorded a change in fair value of $618,948 in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

The underlying value of the anti-dilution provision is calculated from estimating the probability and value of the provision assuming a near term financing event. For the period ended May 31, 2022, the model used estimates the potential that the company completes a capital raise prior to the expiration of the anti-dilution feature and determines the value of the anti-dilution feature given these assumptions. The model required the use of certain assumptions. These assumptions include probability a raise is completed, probability certain anti-dilution features are extended, estimated raise amount, term to a raise, and an appropriate risk-free interest rate. For the period ended August 31, 2022, due to changes in the way antidilutive shares of Convertible Preferred Series A, C and D would be exchanged in the near future for common stock, and the fact that the antidilution provision of these shares was extended through March 31, 2023, the assumptions were changed to include probability of the financing event, estimated value of common stock at the exchange point and estimated time to financing event.

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company adopted ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Under ASC 606, revenue is recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to the Company’s customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for services. The Company recognizes revenue upon meeting each performance obligation based on the allocated amount of the total consideration of the contract to each specific performance obligation.

 

To determine revenue recognition, the Company applies the following five steps:

 

  1. Identify the contract(s) with a customer;
  2. Identify the performance obligations in the contract;
  3. Determine the transaction price;
  4. Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and
  5. Recognize revenue as or when the performance obligation is satisfied.

 

Revenue is recognized as follows:

 

  i. Freight income - export sales
     
    Freight income from the provision of air, ocean, and land freight forwarding services are recognized over time based on a relative transit time basis thru the sail or departure from origin port. The Company is the principal in these transactions and recognizes revenue on a gross basis.
     
  ii. Freight income - import sales
     
    Freight income from the provision of air, ocean, and land freight forwarding services are recognized over time based on a relative transit time basis thru the delivery to the customer’s designated location. The Company is the principal in these transactions and recognizes revenue on a gross basis.
     
  iii. Customs brokerage and other service income
     
    Customs brokerage and other service income from the provision of other services are recognized at the point in time the performance obligation is met.

 

The Company’s business practices require, for accurate and meaningful disclosure, that it recognizes revenue over time. The “over time” policy is the period from point of origin to arrival of the shipment at US Port of entry (or in the case when the customer requires delivery to a designated point, the arrival at that delivery point). This over time policy requires the Company to make significant judgements to recognize revenue over the estimated duration of time from port of origin to arrival at port of entry. The point in the process when the Company meets its obligation in the port of entry and the subsequent transfer of the goods to the customer is when the customer has the obligation to pay, has taken physical possession, has legal title, risk and awards (ownership) and has accepted the goods. The Company has elected to not disclose the aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to performance obligations that are unsatisfied as of the end of the period as the Company’s contracts with its customers have an expected duration of one year or less.

 

F- 10

 

 

The Company uses independent contractors and third-party carriers in the performance of its transportation services. The Company evaluates who controls the transportation services to determine whether its performance obligation is to transfer services to the customer or to arrange for services to be provided by another party. The Company determined it acts as the principal for its transportation services performance obligation since it is in control of establishing the prices for the specified services, managing all aspects of the shipments process and assuming the risk of loss for delivery and collection.

 

Revenue billed prior to realization is recorded as contract liabilities on the consolidated balance sheets and contract costs incurred prior to revenue recognition are recorded as contract assets on the consolidated balance sheets.

 

Contract Assets

 

Contract assets represent amounts for which the Company has the right to consideration for the services provided while a shipment is still in-transit but for which it has not yet completed the performance obligation and has not yet invoiced the customer. Upon completion of the performance obligations, which can vary in duration based upon the method of transport and billing the customer, these amounts become classified within accounts receivable.

 

Contract Liabilities

 

Contract liabilities represent the amount of obligation to transfer goods or services to a customer for which consideration has been received.

Segment Reporting

 

Based on the guidance provided by ASC Topic 280, Segment Reporting, management has determined that the Company currently operates in one geographical segment and consists of a single reporting unit given the similarities in economic characteristics between its operations and the common nature of its products, services and customers.

 

Earnings per Share

 

The Company adopted ASC 260, Earnings per share, guidance from the inception. Earnings per share (“EPS”) is the amount of earnings attributable to each share of common stock. For convenience, the term is used to refer to either earnings or loss per share. Basic EPS is computed by dividing income available to common stockholders (the numerator) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding, including warrants exercisable for less than a penny, (the denominator) during the period. Income available to common stockholders shall be computed by deducting both the dividends declared in the period on preferred stock (whether or not paid) and the dividends accumulated for the period on cumulative preferred stock (whether or not earned) from income from continuing operations (if that amount appears in the consolidated statements of operations) and also from net income. The computation of diluted EPS is similar to the computation of basic EPS except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the dilutive potential common shares had been issued during the period to reflect the potential dilution that could occur from common shares issuable through contingent shares issuance arrangement, stock options or warrants.

 

The following table provides a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator used in computing basic and diluted net income attributable to common stockholders per common share.

Leases

 

The Company recognizes a right of use (“ROU”) asset and liability in the consolidated balance sheet primarily related to its operating leases of office space, warehouse space and equipment. Right-of-use assets represent the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term, and lease liabilities represent the Company’s obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. All ROU assets and lease liabilities are recognized at the commencement date at the present value of lease payments over the lease term. ROU assets are adjusted for lease incentives and initial direct costs. The lease term includes renewal options exercisable at the Company’s sole discretion when the Company is reasonably certain to exercise that option. As the Company’s leases generally do not have an implicit rate, the Company uses an estimated incremental borrowing rate based on borrowing rates available to them at the commencement date to determine the present value. Certain of our leases include variable payments, which may vary based upon changes in facts or circumstances after the start of the lease. The Company excludes variable payments from ROU assets and lease liabilities to the extent not considered fixed, and instead expenses variable payments as incurred. Lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term and is included in rent and occupancy expenses in the consolidated statements of operations.

6. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Pending acquisitions 

 

On April 28, 2022, Unique Logistics International, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a stock purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), by and between the Company and Unique Logistics Holdings Limited, a Hong Kong corporation (the “Seller”), whereby the Company acquired from the Seller all of Seller’s share capital (the “Purchased Shares”) in nine (9) of Seller’s subsidiaries (collectively the “Subsidiaries”) as listed in Schedule I of the Purchase Agreement. As consideration for the Purchased Shares, the Company agreed to (i) pay the Seller $21,000,000 (the “Cash Consideration”); and (ii) issue to the Seller a $1,000,000 promissory note (the “Note” and, together with the Cash Consideration, the “Purchase Price”). The Purchase Price is subject to certain adjustments set forth in the Purchase Agreement.

 

The transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement shall be contingent upon and subject to successful Financing and shell be completed prior to December 31, 2022. If the Company is unable to obtain the Financing, the Company may provide written notice to Seller stating that the Company has been unable to obtain the Financing and notify Seller that the Company has elected to either (i) waive the condition of the Financing, in which event the Purchase Agreement will continue as if the Financing had been obtained or (ii) terminate the Purchase Agreement.

 

Litigation

 

From time to time, the Company may become involved in litigation relating to claims arising in the ordinary course of the business. There are no claims or actions pending or threatened against the Company that, if adversely determined, would in the Company’s management’s judgment have a material adverse effect on the Company.

 

Leases

 

The Company leases office space, warehouse facilities and equipment under non-cancellable lease agreements expiring on various dates through October 2028. Office leases contain provisions for future rent increases. The Company adopted ASC 842 from inception, requiring the Company to recognize an asset and liability on the consolidated balance sheets for lease arrangements with terms longer than 12 months. The Company has elected the practical expedient to not apply the recognition requirement to leases with a term of less than one year (short term leases). The Company uses its incremental borrowing rate to discount lease payments to present value. The incremental borrowing rate is based on the estimated interest rate the Company could obtain for borrowing over a similar term of the lease at commencement date. Rental escalations, renewal options and termination options, when applicable, have been factored into the Company’s determination of lease payments when appropriate. The Company does not separate lease and non-lease components of contracts. Variable payments related to pass-through costs for maintenance, taxes and insurance or adjustments based on an index such as Consumer Price Index are not included in the measurement of the lease liability or asset and are expensed as incurred.

 

The components of lease expense were as follows:

7. INCOME TAX PROVISION

 

The income tax provision consists of the following:

 

   

For the Three Months

Ended

August 31, 2022

   

For the Three Months

Ended

August 31, 2021

 
Federal                
Current   $ 562,587     $ 457,000  
Deferred     17,675       65,448  
State and Local                
Current     205,470       102,000  
Deferred     6,455       10,011  
Income tax expense   $ 792,187     $ 634,459  

 

The Company has no U.S. federal net operating loss carryovers (NOLs) as of August 31 and May 31, 2022, available to offset taxable income. The Company had California State Net Operating Loss carry over of $0.3 million as of August 31 and May 31, 2022, available to offset future taxable income.

 

In assessing the realization of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon future generation for taxable income during the periods in which temporary differences representing net future deductible amounts become deductible. Management considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. For the three months ended August 31, 2022 and 2021, there was no valuation allowance necessary.

 

The Company evaluated the provisions of ASC 740 related to the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements. ASC 740 prescribes a comprehensive model for how a company should recognize, present, and disclose uncertain positions that the Company has taken or expects to take in its tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. Differences between tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return and the net benefit recognized and measured pursuant to the interpretation are referred to as “unrecognized benefits.” A liability is recognized (or amount of net operating loss carry forward or amount of tax refundable is reduced) for unrecognized tax benefit because it represents an enterprise’s potential future obligation to the taxing authority for a tax position that was not recognized as a result of applying the provisions of ASC 740.

 

If applicable, interest costs related to the unrecognized tax benefits are required to be calculated and would be classified as “Other expenses – Interest” in the statement of operations. Penalties would be recognized as a component of “General and administrative.”

 

No interest or penalties on unpaid tax were recorded during the three months ended August 31, 2022 and no liability for unrecognized tax benefits was required to be reported. The Company does not expect any significant changes in its unrecognized tax benefits in the next year.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements 

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes a number of forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (the “Exchange Act”) that reflect management’s current views with respect to future events and financial performance. These statements are based upon beliefs of, and information currently available to, the Company’s management as well as estimates and assumptions made by the Company’s management. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which are only predictions and speak only as of the date hereof. When used herein, the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “future,” “intend,” “plan,” “predict,” “project,” “target,” “potential,” “will,” “would,” “could,” “should,” “continue” or the negative of these terms and similar expressions as they relate to the Company or the Company’s management identify forward-looking statements. Such statements reflect the current view of the Company with respect to future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and other factors, including the risks relating to the Company’s business, industry, and the Company’s operations and results of operations. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may differ significantly from those anticipated, believed, estimated, expected, intended, or planned.

 

Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements. Except as required by applicable law, including the securities laws of the United States, the Company does not intend to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform these statements to actual results.

 

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). These accounting principles require us to make certain estimates, judgements and assumptions. We believe that the estimates, judgements and assumptions upon which we rely are reasonable based upon information available to us at the time that these estimates, judgements and assumptions are made. These estimates, judgements and assumptions can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented. Our condensed consolidated financial statements would be affected to the extent there are material differences between these estimates and actual results. The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this report. The forward-looking statements made in this report are based only on events or information as of the date on which the statements are made in this report. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, after the date on which the statements are made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. You should read this report and the documents we refer to in this report and have filed as exhibits to this report completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we expect. These risks include, by way of example and without limitation:

 

The company provides services to customers engaged in international commerce. Everything that affects international trade has the potential to expand or contract our primary market and adversely impact our operating results

 

·We depend on operators of aircrafts, ships, trucks, ports and airports

 

We derive a significant portion of our total revenues and net revenues from our largest customers

 

Due to our dependence on a limited number of customers, we are subject to a concentration of credit risk

 

Our earnings may be affected by seasonal changes in the transportation industry

 

Our business is affected by ever increasing regulations from a number of sources in the United States and in foreign locations in which we operate

 

As a corporation transacting business in multiple countries, we are subject to formal or informal investigations from governmental authorities or others in the countries in which we do business

 

The global economy and capital and credit markets continue to experience uncertainty and volatility

 

Our business is subject to significant seasonal fluctuations driven by market demands and each quarter is affected by seasonal trends.

 

Our revenue and direct costs are subject to significant fluctuations depending on supply and demand for freight capacity.

 

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, or performance. Readers are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made by us in this report and in our other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). We undertake no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements to reflect changed assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events or changes in the future operating results over time except as required by law. We believe that our assumptions are based upon reasonable data derived from and known about our business and operations. No assurances are made that actual results of operations or the results of our future activities will not differ materially from our assumptions.

 

Overview

 

We are a global logistics and freight forwarding company. We operated via our wholly owned subsidiaries, Unique Logistics International (BOS) Inc, a Massachusetts corporation (“UL BOS”) and Unique Logistics International (NYC) LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“UL NYC”).

 

The Company provides a range of international logistics services that enable its customers to outsource to the Company sections of their supply chain process. The services provided by the Company are seamlessly managed by its network of trained employees and integrated information systems. We enable our customers to share data regarding their international vendors and purchase orders with us, execute the flow of goods and information under their operating instructions, provide visibility to the flow of goods from factory to distribution center or store and when required, update their inventory records.

 

Our range of services can be categorized as follows:

 

  Air Freight
  Ocean Freight
  Customs Brokerage and Compliance
  Warehousing and Distribution
  Order Management

 

Market Trends

 

Demand for space by ocean freight and air freight from United States importers surged in the period June 2021 through December 2021 as retailers increased inventory in anticipation of the post covid resurgence. This surge coupled with the impact of Covid related factory lockdowns in Vietnam resulted in logistics disruptions and ultimately unprecedented congestion in United States ports and airports. Air cargo charters, including passenger aircrafts converted to cargo charter flights were heavily in demand in the second half of 2021 and pricing of all shipping methods increased to unprecedented levels. The demand for shipping started slowing down in early 2022 and price of shipping has been on a declining trend since then, notwithstanding fluctuations in fuel prices. Many United States retailers found themselves with excessive inventory by the middle of 2022 and temporary corrections resulted in a softer logistics market from May 2022 onward, with recovery expected towards the end of 2022.

Business Trends

 

In response to market trends, the Company increased its procurement of ocean freight and air freight capacity to meet the requirements of its customer base. The Company arranged ad hoc air cargo charter flights to the United States from Vietnam, India, Bangladesh, Singapore and Indonesia to meet customer demand for capacity. During the first quarter ended August 31, 2022, the Company scaled back on air cargo charter flights due to slowing demand and falling ocean freight prices. Many United States retailers reported over-inventory positions and shipping trends moved from “just in case” (in the post Covid recovery period a year ago) to more traditional “just in time”. Revenues declined in the current quarter, both in terms of pricing and volume. However, the Company’s strategic procurement policies resulted in increased margins and greater profitability.

 

Significant Development

 

The Company has now initiated an internal process to develop its environmental, social and corporate governance (“ESG”) framework. An external consultant has been engaged to guide the Company in its initial steps. The Board of Directors and Management are fully committed towards ensuring that the Company is on a path to the systematic adoption of policies to identify, assess and manage sustainability-related risks and opportunities in respect to all stakeholders (including but not limited to customers, suppliers and employees) and the environment.

 

Results of Operations

 

Revenue

 

The Company’s recorded total revenue from operations for the three months ended August 31, 2022 and 2021, in the amounts of approximately $136.5 million and $189.8 million, respectively. Revenue by product line was reported as follows:

 

    For the Three Months
ended
August 31, 2022
    For the Three Months
ended
August 31, 2021
 
Revenues            
Air Freight   $ 29,934,037     $ 52,162,641  
Ocean Freight     88,254,730       123,300,758  
Contract logistics     768,714       722,664  
Customs brokerage and other services     17,551,391       13,585,797  
Total revenues   $ 136,508,872     $ 189,771,860  

 

Revenue declined by 28.1% driven by a slowdown in shipping and pricing decline in both air and sea. The Company’s strategic procurement policies ensured that despite the decline in revenue, there was growth in net revenue and profitability. The Company continues to invest in its sales and marketing strategy to increase market share, while seeking opportunities for strategic acquisitions to grow our business.

 

Gross Margins

 

Product costs were $126.4 million for the three months ended August 31, 2022, compared with $181.5 million for the three months August 31, 2021. This 30.1% decrease in cost more than offset the decrease in revenue. Based on the executed strategy during the first three months ended August 31, 2022, we were able to improve net revenue (or gross margin) to 7.4% from 4.3% same period last year. The Company’s management is committed to continue improving margins by smart procurement, providing value added services and focusing on technology.

Operating Expenses

 

Operating expenses remained steady at $5.2 million for three months ended August 31, 2022 from $5.0 million for three months ended August 31, 2021. Personnel costs increased primarily due to increase in the number of full-time employees. During the quarter ended August 31, 2022, the Company has improved its operational bench strength, expanded its business development function and added to its finance and accounting team. Selling and promotion expenses decreased in line with business trends and adjustment of related accruals.

 

Other Expenses

 

Other expenses comprised of interest expense, gain on forgiveness of promissory notes, amortization of debt discount and gain on extinguishment of convertible debt and change in fair value of derivative liabilities.

 

During the three months ended August 31, 2022, interest expense and bank fees totaled approximately $1.4 million. The Company also recorded $0.6 million gain on the mark to market of the derivative liability associated with the antidilution provision imbedded in Series A, C and D Preferred Stocks.

 

For the three months ended August 31, 2021, the Company recorded approximately $1.3 million interest expense and bank fees and offsetting gain on extinguishment of note payable totaling approximately $0.8 million.

 

Net Income After Tax

 

The Company reported net income of $3.3 million for the three months ended August 31, 2022, compared to a net income of $2.0 million for the ended August 31, 2021.

 

Adjusted EBITDA

 

We define adjusted EBITDA to be earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, factoring fees, other income, net, stock-based compensation and expenses, merger and acquisition costs, restructuring, transition and acquisitions expense, net, goodwill impairment and certain other items.

 

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. We present adjusted EBITDA because we believe that adjusted EBITDA is a useful supplement to net income from operations as an indicator of operating performance. We use adjusted EBITDA as a financial metric to measure the financial performance of the business because management believes it provides additional information with respect to the performance of its fundamental business activities. For this reason, we believe adjusted EBITDA will also be useful to others, including our stockholders, as a valuable financial metric.

 

We believe that adjusted EBITDA is a performance measure and not a liquidity measure, and therefore a reconciliation between net income from continuing operations and adjusted EBITDA has been provided in the financial results. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to income from operations or net income from operations as an indicator of performance or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as an indicator of cash flows, in each case as determined in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of liquidity. In addition, adjusted EBITDA does not take into account changes in certain assets and liabilities as well as interest and income taxes that can affect cash flows. We do not intend the presentation of these non-GAAP measures to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should be read only in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis. Substantial doubt about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern exists when conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, indicate that it is probable that the entity will be unable to meet its obligations as they become due within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued.

 

As of August 31, 2022, the Company reported working capital of approximately $6.5 million compared with $4.2 million working capital as of May 31, 2022. The Company’s Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”) contribution to working capital was $5.1 million and cash flow from operations $0.3 million during the quarter ended August 31, 2022. The Company has adequate cash availability through the TBK Facility.

 

Since its inception, the Company has experienced significant business growth. To fund such growth, operating capital was initially provided by third party investors through the sale of Convertible Notes which were subsequently exchanged into convertible securities. Preferred shares are more beneficial to the Company because they do not require cash repayments. Due to the antidilution provision imbedded in the certain of the convertible securities, these provisions resulted in an embedded derivative and the Company recorded a long-term liability. As of the quarter ended August 31, 2022, and the year ended May 31, 2022, this liability was $11.8 million and $12.4 million, respectively. This liability is recorded as a long-term liability due to its future settlement in common stock on the balance sheet and is being adjusted to market on each of the subsequent reporting periods.

 

While we continue to execute our strategic plan, management is focused on managing cash and monitoring liquidity position. We have implemented a number of initiatives to conserve our liquidity position including activities such as increasing credit facilities, reducing cost of debt, controlling general  and administrative expenditures and improving collection processes. Many of the aspects of the plan involve management’s judgments and estimates that include factors that could be beyond our control and actual results could differ from our estimates. These and other factors could cause the strategic plan to be unsuccessful which could have a material adverse effect on our operating results, financial condition, and liquidity. Use of operating cash is an indicator that there could be a going concern issue, but based on our evaluation of the Company’s projected cash flows and business performance subsequent to the balance sheet date, management has concluded that the Company’s current cash and cash availability under the TBK Facility as of August 31, 2022, would be sufficient to alleviate a going concern issue for at least one year from the date these consolidated financial statements are issued.

The following table summarizes total current assets, liabilities and working capital at August 31, 2022 compared to May 31, 2022:

Current Assets   $ 94,909,343     $ 108,543,031     $ (13,633,688)

Working Capital   $ 6,504,865     $ 4,175,441     $ 2,329,424  

 

The change in working capital is primarily attributable to a decrease in cash and cash equivalents of $1.2 million, a decrease in accounts receivable of about $10.6 million, a decrease in contract assets of $2.8 million, offset by a decrease in accounts payable - trade of about $7.4 million, a decrease of accrued freight of about $6.2 million and decrease in the borrowed amount on the line of credit by $1.4 million.

Net (decrease) increase in cash and cash equivalent   $ (1,151,591)     $ 43,792     $ (1,195,383)  

 

Operating activities provided cash of $0.3 million for the three months ended August 31, 2022 compared to net cash used by operations of $40.4 million for the three months ended August 31, 2021. Primary reason for cash provided for the three months ended August 31, 2022, was the collections on accounts receivables offset by reduction in Accounts Payable and Accrued Freight. Primary reason for cash used for the three months ended August 31, 2021, was a significant increase in accounts receivables, reflecting repurchase of trade receivables from a factor taking advantage of a better interest rate on Company’s new revolving credit facility.

 

Cash used by financing activities of $1.38 million for the three months ended August 31, 2022 primarily for repayment of $1.4 million on line of credit. During the three months ended August 31, 2021, financing activities provided cash of $40.5 million due to initial borrowing of $39.5 million from the line of credit facility in effect from June 1, 2021 used to repurchase factored trade receivables.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt - “Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity”. This ASU amends the guidance on convertible instruments and the derivatives scope exception for contracts in an entity’s own equity, and also improves and amends the related EPS guidance for both Subtopics. ASU 2020-06 is effective for public business entities, other than smaller reporting companies as defined by the SEC starting January 1, 2022. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact of this standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Accounting policies, methods and estimates are an integral part of the condensed consolidated financial statements prepared by management and are based upon management’s current judgments. These judgments are normally based on knowledge and experience regarding past and current events and assumptions about future events. Certain accounting policies, methods and estimates are particularly sensitive because of their significance to the financial statements and because of the possibility that future events affecting them may differ from management’s current judgments. While there are a number of accounting policies, methods and estimates that affect our condensed consolidated financial statements, the areas that are particularly significant include revenue recognition; the fair value of acquired assets and liabilities; fair value of contingent consideration; the assessment of the recoverability of long-lived assets, goodwill and intangible assets; and leases.

 

We perform an impairment test of goodwill for each year unless events or circumstances indicate impairment may have occurred before that time. We assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more-likely-than-not that the fair value of the reporting unit is less than the carrying amount. After assessing qualitative factors, if further testing is necessary, we would determine the fair value of each reporting unit and compare the fair value to the reporting unit’s carrying amount.

 

Intangible assets consist of customer relationships, trade names and trademarks and non-compete agreements arising from our acquisitions. Customer relationships are amortized on a straight-line basis over 12 to 15 years. Tradenames, trademarks and non-compete agreements, are amortized on a straight-line basis over 3 to 10 years.

 

We review long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable. If the sum of the undiscounted expected future cash flows over the remaining useful life of a long-lived asset is less than its carrying amount, the asset is considered to be impaired. Impairment losses are measured as the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset. When fair values are not available, we estimate fair value using the expected future cash flows discounted at a rate commensurate with the risks associated with the recovery of the asset. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell.

 

The Company has identified derivative instruments arising from an anti-dilution provision in the Company’s preferred stock. Each reporting period, the embedded derivative liability, if material, would be adjusted to reflect fair value at each period end with changes in fair value recorded in the “Change in fair value of embedded derivative liability” financial statement line item of the Company’s condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Our significant accounting policies are summarized in Note 1 of our condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

As a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide the information required by this item.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES 

 

The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, refers to controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact there are resource constraints and management is required to apply judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs.

Our management, with the participation of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, evaluated, as of the end of the period covered by this Form 10-Q, the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act). Based on that evaluation, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer concluded as of August 31, 2022 that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective and require remediation in order to be effective. Prior to October 2020, we were a private company with limited accounting personnel and other resources with which we address our internal control over financial reporting. In connection with the audit of our financial statements as of and for the year ended May 31, 2022, our management identified material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting. A material weakness is a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, in internal controls, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. The material weaknesses identified relate to the fact that we did not design and maintain an effective control environment commensurate with our financial reporting requirements, including (a) lack of a sufficient number of trained professionals with an appropriate level of accounting knowledge, training and experience. Management’s general assessment of the above processes in light of the company’s size, maturity and complexity, as to the design and effectiveness of the internal controls over financial reporting is that the key controls and procedures in each of these processes provide reasonable assurance regarding reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

No change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) has occurred during the three months ended August 31, 2022 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. Management is currently assessing a remediation plan and intends to implement such controls and procedures. Management intends to have the controls and procedures implemented and remediated by May 31, 2023.

 

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

We are currently not involved in any litigation that we believe could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations. There is no action, suit, proceeding, inquiry or investigation before or by any court, public board, government agency, self-regulatory organization or body pending or, to the knowledge of the executive officers of our company or any of our subsidiaries, threatened against or affecting our company, our common stock, any of our subsidiaries or of our companies or our subsidiaries’ officers or directors in their capacities as such, in which an adverse decision could have a material adverse effect.

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

Our business, financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows may be impacted by a number of factors, many of which are beyond our control, including those set forth in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in our other filings with the SEC, the occurrence of any one of which could have a material adverse effect on our actual results. There have been no material changes to the Risk Factors previously disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our other filings with the SEC.

 

ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS

 

There were no unregistered sales of the Company’s equity securities during the quarter ended August 31, 2022, that were not previously reported in a Current Report on Form 8-K except as follows:
