WELLNESS CENTER USA, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2020 AND 2019

 

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Organization and Operations

 

Wellness Center USA, Inc. (“WCUI” or the “Company”) was incorporated in June 2010 under the laws of the State of Nevada. The Company initially engaged in online sports and nutrition supplements marketing and distribution. The Company subsequently expanded into additional businesses within the healthcare and medical sectors through acquisitions, including Psoria-Shield Inc. (“PSI”) and StealthCo Inc. (“SCI”), d/b/a Stealth Mark, Inc.

 

The Company currently operates in the following business segments: (i) distribution of targeted Ultra Violet (“UV”) phototherapy devices for dermatology and sanitation purposes; and (ii) authentication and encryption products and services. The segments are operated, respectively, through PSI and SCI.

 

Basis of Presentation of Unaudited Financial Information

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Wellness Center USA, Inc. and Subsidiaries (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended December 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending September 30, 2021.

 

COVID-19 Considerations

 

In the period ended December 31, 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic did not have a material net impact on our operating results. In the future, the pandemic may cause reduced demand for our products if, for example, the pandemic results in a recessionary economic environment which negatively effects the consumers who purchase our products.

 

Our ability to operate without significant negative operational impact from the COVID-19 pandemic will in part depend on our ability to protect our employees and our supply chain. The Company has endeavored to follow the recommended actions of government and health authorities to protect our employees. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we maintained the consistency of our operations. However, the uncertainty resulting from the pandemic could result in an unforeseen disruption to our workforce and supply chain (for example an inability of a key supplier or transportation supplier to source and transport materials) that could negatively impact our operations.

 

Through December 31, 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has not negatively impacted the Company’s liquidity position as of such date. Through December 31, 2020, the Company continues to generate cash flows through financing activities to meet its short-term liquidity needs, and it expects to maintain access to those shareholder loans. The Company has not observed any material impairments of its assets or a significant change in the fair value of its assets due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements 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. As reflected in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company has not yet generated significant revenues and has incurred recurring net losses. During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company incurred a net loss of $324,300 and used cash in operations of $267,797, and had a shareholders’ deficit of $2,501,338 as of December 31, 2020. In addition, loans payable of $504,250 and payroll taxes of $87,834 are past due. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company’s ability to raise additional funds and implement its strategies. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

In addition, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, in its report on the Company’s September 30, 2020 financial statements, has raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

At December 31, 2020, the Company had cash on hand in the amount of $78,523. The ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company attaining and maintaining profitable operations in the future and raising additional capital soon to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. Since inception, we have funded our operations primarily through equity and debt financings and we expect to continue to rely on these sources of capital in the future. During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company received $295,000 through short-term loans from officers and shareholders.

 

No assurance can be given that any future financing will be available or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to the Company. Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, it may contain undue restrictions on our operations, in the case of debt financing or cause substantial dilution for our stock holders, in case of equity financing.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries and the accounts of its subsidiaries for which it was determined that Company has operational and management control. The Company’s consolidated subsidiaries and/or controlled entities are as follows:

 

Name of consolidated subsidiary or entity   State or other jurisdiction of incorporation or organization   Date of incorporation or formation (date of acquisition/disposition, if applicable)   Attributable interest at September 30, 2019     Attributable interest at September 30, 2020  
Psoria-Shield Inc. (“PSI”)   The State of Florida  

June 2009

(August 2012)

    100 %     51 %(1)
StealthCo, Inc. (“StealthCo”)   The State of Illinois   March 2014     100 %     100 %
Psoria Development Company LLC. (“PDC”)   The State of Illinois  

January 2015/

November 2018

    0 %     0 %
NEO Phototherapy LLC (“NEO”)   The State of Illinois   December 2018     51 %(1)     0 %
Protec Scientific, Inc (“Protec”)   The State of New York   April 2020     0 %     38 %

 

(1) - Effective April 30, 2020, the Company’s 51% interest in NEO was converted into a 51% interest in PSI.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the financial statement date, and reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates are used in the valuation of accounts receivable and allowance for uncollectible amounts, inventory and obsolescence reserves, accruals for potential liabilities, valuations of stock-based compensation, and realization of deferred tax assets, among others. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

 

Income (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of outstanding common shares during the period. Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if all dilutive potential common shares had been issued. For the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, the basic and diluted shares outstanding were the same, as potentially dilutive shares were considered anti-dilutive. At December 31, 2020 and 2019, the dilutive impact of outstanding stock options of 12,665,238 and 15,037,738 shares, respectively, and outstanding warrants for 67,634,049 and 66,484,049 shares, respectively, have been excluded because their impact on the loss per share is anti-dilutive.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The company records revenue under the guidance of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC“) 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) which requires a company to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to a customer at an amount that reflects the consideration it expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services.

 

For trade sales, the Company generates its revenue from sales contracts with customers with revenues being generated upon the shipment of merchandise, or for consulting services, revenue is recognized in the period services are rendered and earned under service arrangements with clients.

 

We sell our products through two main sales channels: 1) directly to customers who use our products (the “Direct Channel”) and 2) to distribution partners who resell our products (the “Indirect Channel”).

 

Under the Direct Channel, we sell our products to and we receive payment directly from customers who purchase our products. Under our Indirect Channel, we have entered into distribution agreements that allow the distributors to sell our products and fulfill performance obligations under the agreements.

 

We determine revenue recognition through the following steps:

 

  Identification of the contract, or contracts, with a customer
     
  Identification of the performance obligations in the contract
     
  Determination of the transaction price
     
  Allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract
     
  Recognition of revenue when, or as, we satisfy a performance obligation.

 

Revenue is generally recognized upon shipment or when a service has been completed, unless we have significant performance obligations for services still to be completed. We recognize revenue when a material reversal is no longer probable. Payments received before the relevant criteria for revenue recognition are satisfied are recorded as deferred revenue. There was no deferred revenue at December 31, 2020 and 2019.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Non-controlling Interests

 

In December 2018, PSI entered into a Joint Venture Agreement with GEN2 for further development, marketing, licensing and/or sale of PSI technology and products. Pursuant to the Joint Venture Agreement, the venture will be conducted through NEO Phototherapy, Inc. (“NEO”). PSI and GEN2 will be the members of NEO, owning 50.5% and 36.0%, respectively, of the Units issued in connection with the organization of NEO. An additional 13.5% of such Units will be reserved for issuance as incentives for key employees and consultants. As of September 30, 2019, GEN2 had received $975,000 of investments to contribute to NEO. As of April 30, 2020, the Company controlled 51% of the joint venture, GEN2 controlled 39% and another individual controlled the remaining 10%.

 

Effective April 30, 2020, the joint venture with GEN2 was reorganized. GEN2 shareholders exchanged their common shares in GEN2, and the individual exchanged his membership interests in NEO, for common shares representing 49% ownership in PSI. The Company retained its common shares in PSI, which provides the Company a 51% economic interest in the PSI technology and products developed by the joint venture. During three months ended December 31, 2020, PSI recorded a loss of $151,433 relating to its operations, of which $74,202 was allocated to the non-controlling interest.

 

Repayment of the $975,000 investment will begin through and upon the date which PSI has realized and retained cumulative net income/distributable cash in the amount of $300,000. The minority interest of PSI ownership consists of accredited investors, and investment participation of $750,000 from several WCUI officers and directors, including Calvin R. O’Harrow and Roy M. Harsch.

 

In May 2020, the Company’s subsidiary, PSI, agreed to become a majority shareholder in Protec Scientific, Inc. (“Protec”), a company formed in April 2020 by John Yorke for the purpose of designing, developing and marketing products that use spectral photonic emissions across a variety of applications. As of September 30, 2020, PSI had advanced $191,000 to Protec in furtherance of its agreement to acquire approximately 62% of Protec, with the Company’s share being approximately 32%, based on its PSI ownership. The remaining 30% share is to be attributed to PSI’s minority shareholders, based on their PSI ownership. During the year ended September 30, 2020, Protec received an additional $120,000 from non-affiliated investors, of which $74,400 was recorded to additional paid-in capital and $45,600 to the non-controlling interests. The additional investments gave the non-controlling interests a 38% ownership interest in Protec. During the three months ended December 31, 2020, Protec recorded a loss of $101,492, of which $69,400 was allocated to the non-controlling interests.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is computed on a first-in, first-out basis. At December 31, 2020, primarily all of the inventories consisted of raw materials or work-in-progress. The Company provides inventory reserves based on excess and obsolete inventories determined primarily by future demand forecasts. The write down amount, if any, is measured as the difference between the cost of the inventory and net realizable value based upon assumptions about future demand and charged to the provision for inventory, which is a component of cost of sales. At the point of the loss recognition, a new, lower cost basis for that inventory is established, and subsequent changes in facts and circumstances do not result in the restoration or increase in that newly established cost basis. At December 31, 2020, the Company recorded a reserve of $50,000 for excess and slow moving inventories. At September 30, 2020, no reserve was recorded for excess, slow moving or obsolete inventory.

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company periodically issues stock-based compensation to officers, directors, and consultants for services rendered, and as part of financing transactions. Such issuances vest and expire according to terms established at the issuance date. Stock-based payments to officers, directors, employees, and for acquiring goods and services from non-employees, which include grants of employee stock options, are recognized in the financial statements based on their fair values in accordance with Topic 718. Stock option grants, which are generally time vested, will be measured at the grant date fair value and charged to operations on a straight-line basis over the vesting period.

 

The fair value of the Company’s common stock option and warrant grants are estimated using a Black-Scholes Merton option pricing model, which uses certain assumptions related to risk-free interest rates, expected volatility, expected life of the common stock options, estimated forfeitures and future dividends. Compensation expense is recorded based upon the value derived from the Black-Scholes option pricing model, and based on actual experience. The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes Merton option pricing model could materially affect compensation expense recorded in future periods.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Credit Losses - Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (“ASC 326”). The standard significantly changes how entities will measure credit losses for most financial assets, including accounts and notes receivables. The standard will replace today’s “incurred loss” approach with an “expected loss” model, under which companies will recognize allowances based on expected rather than incurred losses. Entities will apply the standard’s provisions as a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. The standard is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019. The adoption of ASU 2016-13 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, and cash flows.

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB, including its Emerging Issues Task Force, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Securities and Exchange Commission did not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company’s present or future consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 4 – U.S. SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION LOAN PAYABLE

 

During the year ended September 30, 2020, the Company’s subsidiary, PSI, entered into a loan agreement with the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) under which the Company borrowed $37,166. The loan is unsecured, accrues interest at 1.0% and is due on April 23, 2022. Beginning in March 2021, PSI is required to make monthly interest payments and all principal and unpaid interest is due in April 2022. If PSI meets certain criteria as defined in the agreement, the loan may be forgiven at which time the Company would recognize a gain on debt forgiveness. As of the date of this filing, the Company had not yet applied for forgiveness of the loan. As of December 31, 2020, a total of $37,166 was outstanding on the loan.

 

NOTE 5 – LEASE LIABILITIES

 

Operating Lease

 

In February 2019, the Company’s PSI subsidiary entered into a 24-month non-cancellable lease for its office facilities that will require monthly payments of $1,850 through January 2021. The Company adopted ASU 2016-02, Leases, effective October 1, 2019, which requires a lessee to record a right-of-use asset and a corresponding lease liability at the inception of the lease initially measured at the present value of the lease payments. The Company classified the lease as an operating lease and determined that the value of the lease asset and liability at the inception of the lease was $27,841, using a discount rate of 4.00%. As of September 30, 2020, the value of the lease asset and liability was $6,961, respectively. During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company made payments of $5,348 towards the lease liability. As of December 31, 2020, the lease liability amounted to $1,613.

 

ASU 2016-02 requires recognition in the statement of operations of a single lease cost, calculated so that the cost of the lease is allocated over the lease term, generally on a straight-line basis. Rent expense for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was $5,348. During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company reflected amortization of the right of use asset of $5,348 related to this lease, resulting in a net asset balance of 1,613 as of December 31, 2020.

 

Other Leases

 

The Company leased its corporate office facility in Hoffman Estates, Illinois pursuant to a non-cancellable lease initiated in July 2016 and expiring February 28, 2024. The lease terms require a monthly payment of approximately $11,000. The Company vacated the facility in April 2019, in favor of its present facilities in Tucson AZ, which are provided by a shareholder on a rent-free basis. The Company is in negotiations with the owners regarding the settlement of its lease obligations and expects that the property will be subleased or a settlement with the landlord will be reached at an amount significantly less than the remaining payment obligations. At the date of abandonment, the Company had a remaining lease obligation of $631,587.

 

On or about June 29, 2020, we received notice that Hanover Hoffman Estates, LLC (“HHE”), filed case number 2020L006092 in the Circuit Court of Cook County alleging our failure to pay Base Rent and abandonment of certain office space in Hoffman Estates, Illinois subject to a Commercial Lease dated May 26, 2016. HHE seeks at least $672,878 in base rent and other amounts under the lease, as well as treble damages from our ex-CEO and two past Directors who were serving on our Board as of the date of the lease. We are currently evaluating the allegations, defenses and alternate actions. As of December 31, 2020, the Company has recorded the full amount of the judgement due.

NOTE 6 – SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY (CONTINUED)

 

Stock Options (continued)

 

The Company’s policy is to recognize compensation cost for awards with only service conditions and a graded vesting schedule on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for the entire award. Additionally, the Company’s policy is to issue new shares of common stock to satisfy stock option exercises. The Company applied fair value accounting for all share based payments awards. The fair value of each option granted is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model.

NOTE 8 – LEGAL MATTERS

 

The Company is periodically engaged in legal proceedings arising from and relating to its business operations. Except as otherwise described herein, we currently are 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 Company’s or our subsidiaries’ officers or directors in their capacities as such, in which an adverse decision could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations.

 

We continue efforts to preserve revenue and reduce operating expenses through actions including, but not limited to, facilities consolidation and staff reductions, which we hope to implement through negotiated transactions with lessors, employees and other third parties. Such actions may result in disputes with and claims by such parties which, if not resolved through negotiations, may impact negatively the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. To date, the Company has negotiated settlement of all ex-employee wage and benefits claims except for two. The first regards unpaid wages claimed due together with interest at the rate of 4% per annum on such amount as the Company originally agreed upon in settlement negotiations. The ex-employee claims additional amounts due for certain statutory damages under the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection which currently could exceed $21,600.00 and would increase at the rate of 2% of the wages due per month plus attorneys’ fees if the employee elects to file suit for a violation of the Act and is successful in obtaining a judgment on his claim.

 

The second claim was filed with the Illinois Department of Labor asserting a violation of the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act by the Company’s former CEO. That claim alleges unpaid wages in the amount of $158,714.60 and unpaid vacation pay in the amount of $20,833.33 for a total amount of $179,547.90, as well as certain statutory damages including, but not limited to, 2% of the wages due per month plus attorneys’ fees if the ex-CEO elects to file suit for a violation of the Act and is successful in obtaining a judgment on his claim. The Company has filed its response to such claim with the Department denying the substantive allegations therein and asserting certain factual and legal defenses, including breach of fiduciary duty, as a bar to all claimed compensation. The claim remains pending, but as the date hereof, no suit has been filed against the Company asserting a violation of the Act based on said claim.

 

NOTE 9 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

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

 

Forward Looking Statements

 

Except for historical information, the following discussion contains forward-looking statements based upon current expectations that involve certain risks and uncertainties. Such forward-looking statements include statements regarding, among other things, (a) our projected sales and profitability, (b) our growth strategies, (c) anticipated trends in our industry, (d) our future financing plans, (e) our anticipated needs for working capital, (f) our lack of operational experience and (g) the benefits related to ownership of our common stock. Forward-looking statements, which involve assumptions and describe our future plans, strategies, and expectations, are generally identifiable by use of the words “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “believe,” “intend,” or “project” or the negative of these words or other variations on these words or comparable terminology. This information may involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance, or achievements to be materially different from the future results, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by any forward-looking statements. These statements may be found under “Description of Business,” and “Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”, as well as in this Report generally. Actual events or results may differ materially from those discussed in forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including, without limitation, the risks outlined under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and in other Reports we have filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as matters described in this Report generally. In light of these risks and uncertainties, there can be no assurance that the forward-looking statements contained in this Report will in fact occur as projected.

 

The following discussion and analysis provides information which management believes is relevant to an assessment and understanding of our results of operations and financial condition. The discussion should be read along with our financial statements and notes thereto. This section includes a number of forward-looking statements that reflect our current views with respect to future events and financial performance. You should not place undue certainty on these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our predictions.

 

Description of Business

 

Background.

 

Wellness Center USA, Inc. (“WCUI” or the “Company”) was incorporated in June 2010 under the laws of the State of Nevada. We initially engaged in online sports and nutrition supplements marketing and distribution. We subsequently expanded into additional businesses within the healthcare and medical sectors through acquisitions, including Psoria-Shield Inc. (“PSI”) and StealthCo Inc. (“SCI”), d/b/a Stealth Mark, Inc.

 

The Company currently operates in two business segments: (i) distribution of targeted Ultra Violet (“UV”) phototherapy devices for dermatology and sanitation purposes; and (ii) authentication and encryption products and services. The segments are conducted through our wholly-owned subsidiaries, PSI and SCI.

 

COVID-19 Uncertainties

 

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a global pandemic. The responses by federal, state and local governments to restrict public gatherings and travel rapidly grew to include stay-at-home orders, school closures and mandatory restrictions on non-essential businesses and services that has adversely affected workforces, economies, and financial markets resulting in a significant economic downturn. The Company’s corporate office is located in Tucson, Arizona and its manufacturing facility is in Utica, New York. Since March 2020, we have been following the recommendations of local health authorities to minimize exposure risk for our employees, including temporary closures of our offices and having employees work remotely to the extent possibleThe order, which has subsequently been modified to provide for a gradual re-opening of businesses and travel, is to remain in place until further notice.

 

While this disruption is currently expected to be temporary, there is considerable uncertainty around the duration. We are actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and its impact in the markets we serve. We are taking all precautionary measures as directed by health authorities and local and national governments. Due to continuing uncertainties regarding the ultimate scope and trajectory of COVID-19’s spread and evolution, it is impossible to predict the total impact that the pandemic will have on our business. If public and private entities continue to implement restrictive measures, the material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, financial condition and cash flows could persist.

 

PSI

 

PSI was incorporated under the laws of the state of Florida on June 17, 2009. We acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of stock in PSI on August 24, 2012.

 

Joint Ventures

 

In December 2018, PSI entered into a Joint Venture Agreement with GEN2 for further development, marketing, licensing and/or sale of PSI technology and products. Pursuant to the Joint Venture Agreement, the venture will be conducted through NEO Phototherapy, Inc. (“NEO”). PSI and GEN2 will be the members of NEO, owning 50.5% and 36.0%, respectively, of the Units issued in connection with the organization of NEO. An additional 13.5% of such Units will be reserved for issuance as incentives for key employees and consultants. As of September 30, 2020, GEN2 had received $975,000 of investments to contribute to NEO. As of April 30, 2020, the Company controlled 51% of the joint venture, GEN2 controlled 39% and another individual controlled the remaining 10%.

 

18
 

 

Effective April 30, 2020, the joint venture with GEN2 was reorganized. GEN2 shareholders exchanged their common shares in GEN2, and the individual exchanged his membership interests in NEO, for common shares representing 49% ownership in PSI. The Company retained its common shares in PSI, which provides the Company a 51% economic interest in the PSI technology and products developed by the joint venture. During three months ended December 31, 2020, PSI recorded a loss of $151,433 relating to its operations, of which $74,202 was allocated to the non-controlling interest.

 

Repayment of the $975,000 investment will begin through and upon the date which PSI has realized and retained cumulative net income/distributable cash in the amount of $300,000. The minority interest of PSI ownership consists of accredited investors, and investment participation of $750,000 from several WCUI officers and directors, including Calvin R. O’Harrow and Roy M. Harsch.

 

In May 2020, the Company’s subsidiary, PSI, agreed to become a majority shareholder in Protec Scientific, Inc. (“Protec”), a company formed in April 2020 by John Yorke for the purpose of designing, developing and marketing products that use spectral photonic emissions across a variety of applications. As of September 30, 2020, PSI had advanced $191,000 to Protec in furtherance of its agreement to acquire approximately 62% of Protec, with the Company’s share being approximately 32%, based on its PSI ownership. The remaining 30% share is to be attributed to PSI’s minority shareholders, based on their PSI ownership. During the year ended September 30, 2020, Protec received an additional $120,000 from non-affiliated investors, of which $74,400 was recorded to additional paid-in capital and $45,600 to the non-controlling interests. The additional investments gave the non-controlling interests a 38% ownership interest in Protec. During the three months ended December 31, 2020, Protec recorded a loss of $101,492, of which $69,400 was allocated to the non-controlling interests.

 

Psoria-Light

 

PSI designs, develops and markets a targeted ultraviolet (“UV”) phototherapy device called the Psoria-Light. The Psoria-Light is designated for use in targeted PUVA photochemistry and UVB phototherapy and is designed to treat certain skin conditions including psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis (eczema), seborrheic dermatitis, and leukoderma.

 

Psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo, are common skin conditions that can be challenging to treat, and often cause the client significant psychosocial stress. Clients may undergo a variety of treatments to address these skin conditions, including routine consumption of systemic and biologic drug therapies which are highly toxic, reduce systemic immune system function, and come with a host of chemotherapy-like side effects. Ultraviolet (UV) phototherapy is a clinically validated alternate treatment modality for these disorders.

 

Traditionally, “non-targeted” UV phototherapy was administered by lamps that emitted either UVA or UVB light to both diseased and healthy skin. While sunblocks or other UV barriers may be used to protect healthy skin, the UV administered in this manner must be low dosage to avoid excessive exposure of healthy tissue. Today, “targeted” UV phototherapy devices administer much higher dosages of light only to affected tissue, resulting in “clearance” in the case of psoriasis and eczema, and “repigmentation” in the case of vitiligo, at much faster rates than non-targeted (low dosage) UV treatments.

 

Targeted UV treatments are typically administered to smaller total body surface areas, and are therefore used to treat the most intense parts of a client’s disease. Non-targeted UV treatment is typically used as a follow-up and for maintenance, capable of treating large surfaces of the body. Excimer laser devices (UVB at 308nm) are expensive and consume dangerous chemicals (Xenon and Chlorine). Mercury lamp devices (UVB and/or UVA) require expensive lamp replacements regularly and require special disposal (due to mercury content). Additionally, mercury lamp devices typically deliver wavelengths of light below 300nm. While within the UVB spectrum, it has been shown that wavelengths below 300nm produce significantly more “sunburn” type side effects than do wavelengths between 300 and 320nm without improvement in therapeutic benefit.

 

The Psoria-Light is a targeted UV phototherapy device that produces UVB light between 300 and 320 nm as well as UVA light between 350 and 395nm. It does not require consumption of dangerous chemicals or require special environmental disposal, and is cost effective for clinicians, which should result in increased patient access to this type of treatment. It has several unique and advanced features that we believe will distinguish it from the non-targeted and targeted UV phototherapy devices that are currently being used by dermatologists and other healthcare providers. These features include the following: the utilization of deep narrow-band UVB (“NB-UVB”) LEDs as light sources; the ability to produce both UVA or NB-UVB therapeutic wavelengths; an integrated high resolution digital camera and client record integration capabilities; the ability to export to an external USB memory device a PDF file of treatment information including a patent pending graph that includes digital images plotted against user tracked metrics which can be submitted to improve medical reimbursements; an accessory port and ability to update software; ease of placement and portability; advanced treatment site detection safety sensor; international language support; a warranty which includes the UV lamp(s); and a non-changeable treatment log (that does not include HIPPA information).

 

19
 

 

The Psoria-Light consists of three components: a base console, a color display with touchscreen control, and a hand-held delivery device with a conduit (or tether) between the handheld device and the base console. PSI requires clearance by the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to market and sell the device in the United States as well as permission from TUV SUD America Inc., PSI’s Notified Body, to affix the CE mark to the Psoria-Light in order to market and sell the device in countries of the European Union.

 

To obtain FDA clearance and permission to affix the CE mark, PSI was required to conduct EMC and electrical safety testing, which it completed in the second quarter of 2011. PSI received FDA clearance on February 11, 2011 (no. K103540) and was granted permission to affix the CE mark on November 10, 2011. In its 510(k) application with the FDA (application number K103540), PSI asserted that the Psoria-Light was “substantially equivalent” in intended use and technology to two predicate devices, the X -Trac Excimer Laser, which has wide acceptance in the medical billing literature and has a large installed base in the U.S., and the Dualight, another competing targeted UV phototherapy device.

 

PSI has established an ISO 13485 compliant quality system for the Psoria-Light, which was first audited in the third quarter of 2011. This system is intended to ensure PSI devices will be manufactured in a controlled and reliable environment and that its resources follow similar practices and is required for sales in countries requiring a CE mark. PSI has also received Certified Space Technology designation from the Space Foundation, based on PSI’s incorporation of established NASA-funded LED technology.

 

PSI began Psoria-Light Beta deployment in January 2012. It is currently operating at a loss, and there is no assurance that its business development plans and strategies will ever be successful. PSI’s success depends upon the acceptance by healthcare providers and clients of Psoria-Light treatment as a preferred method of treatment for psoriasis and other UV-treatable skin conditions. Psoria-Light treatment appears to have been beneficial to clients, without demonstrable harmful side effects or safety issues, as evidenced by more than 10,000 treatments completed on more than 1,000 clients, domestically and Mexico, since 2012. In order for the Company to continue PSI operations, it will need additional capital and it will have to successfully coordinate integration of PSI operations without materially and adversely affecting continuation and development of other Company operations.

 

SCI

 

SCI was incorporated under the laws of the state of Illinois on March 18, 2014. SCI acquired certain Stealth Mark assets on April 4, 2014 and operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. It is a provider of: a) Stealth Mark encryption and authentication solutions offering advanced technologies within the security and supply chain management vertical sectors (Intelligent Microparticles), and b) advanced data intelligence services offering proprietary, unprecedented, and actionable technology for industries, companies, and agencies on a global scale (ActiveDuty™).

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements 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. As reflected in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company has not yet generated significant revenues and has incurred recurring net losses. During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company incurred a net loss of $324,300 and used cash in operations of $267,797, and had a shareholders’ deficit of $2,501,338 as of December 31, 2020. In addition, loans payable of $504,250 and payroll taxes of $87,834 are past due. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company’s ability to raise additional funds and implement its strategies. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

In addition, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, in its report on the Company’s September 30, 2020 financial statements, has raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

At December 31, 2020, the Company had cash on hand in the amount of $78,523. The ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company attaining and maintaining profitable operations in the future and raising additional capital soon to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. Since inception, we have funded our operations primarily through equity and debt financings and we expect to continue to rely on these sources of capital in the future. During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company received $295,000 through short-term loans from officers and shareholders. As of December 31, 2020, loans payable to officers and shareholders of $1,460,250 were outstanding, with $504,250 being past due. All of the loans are unsecured, have an interest rate of eight percent and are due one year from the date of issuance.

 

No assurance can be given that any future financing will be available or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to the Company. Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, it may contain undue restrictions on our operations, in the case of debt financing or cause substantial dilution for our stock holders, in case of equity financing.

During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company used cash flows in operating activities of $267,797, compared to $195,784 used in the three months ended December 31, 2019. During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company incurred a net loss of $324,300 and $57,855 of non-cash expenses, compared to a net loss of $346,596 and $72,444 of non-cash expenses during the three months ended December 31, 2019.

 

Cash flows used in investing activities

 

During the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company had no cash flows from investing activities.

 

Cash flows provided by financing activities

 

During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company had proceeds from loans payable from officers and shareholders of $295,000. During the three months ended December 31, 2019, the Company had proceeds from loans payable from officers and shareholders of $135,000 and proceeds of $50,000 from contributions of capital by its joint venture partner.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

 

Summary of Critical Accounting Policies.

 

The Company has identified critical accounting policies that, as a result of the judgments, uncertainties, uniqueness and complexities of the underlying accounting standards and operations involved could result in material changes to its financial condition or results of operations under different conditions or using different assumptions. The Company’s most critical accounting policies include, but are not limited to, those related to fair value of financial instruments, revenue recognition, stock based compensation for obtaining employee services, and equity instruments issued to parties other than employees for acquiring goods or services. Details regarding the Company’s use of these policies and the related estimates are described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 8, 2021. There have been no material changes to the Company’s critical accounting policies that impact the Company’s financial condition, results of operations or cash flows for the three months ended December 31, 2020.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Regulations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) require public companies to maintain “disclosure controls and procedures,” which are defined as controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the issuer 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 Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by an issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the issuer’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. A material weakness is a control deficiency (within the meaning of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) Auditing Standard No. 2) or combination of control deficiencies that result in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected.

 

The Company carried out an evaluation, with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of December 31, 2020, the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s CEO concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective at the reasonable assurance level due to the material weaknesses described below:

 

1. The lack of an independent audit committee and the lack of internal personnel necessary to provide accurate and timely regulatory filings.

 

2. The Company does not have written documentation of its internal control policies and procedures. Written documentation of key internal controls over financial reporting is a requirement of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act which is applicable to the Company. Management evaluated the impact of its failure to have written documentation of its internal controls and procedures on its assessment of its disclosure controls and procedures and has concluded that the control deficiency that resulted represented a material weakness.

 

3. The Company does not have sufficient segregation of duties within its accounting functions, which is a basic internal control. Due to its size and nature, segregation of all conflicting duties may not always be possible and may not be economically feasible. However, to the extent possible, the initiation of transactions, the custody of assets and the recording of transactions should be performed by separate individuals. Management evaluated the impact of its failure to have segregation of duties on its assessment of its disclosure controls and procedures and has concluded that the control deficiency that resulted represented a material weakness.

 

4. The Company does not have sufficient segregation of duties so that one person can initiate, authorize and execute transactions.

 

5. The Company has insufficient full time personnel with an appropriate level of technical accounting knowledge to SEC reporting requirements to timely meet the filing requirements.

 

In light of the material weaknesses, the management of the Company performed additional analysis and other post-closing procedures to ensure our consolidated financial statements were prepared in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Accordingly, we believe that our consolidated financial statements included herein fairly present, in all material respects, our consolidated financial condition, consolidated results of operations and cash flows as of and for the reporting periods then ended.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

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

 

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

 

25
 

 

● Only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the issuer; and provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made;

 

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

 

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

 

As of the end of our most recent fiscal year, management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the criteria for effective internal control over financial reporting established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) and SEC guidance on conducting such assessments. Based on that evaluation, they concluded that, as of September 30, 2020, such internal control over financial reporting was not effective. This was due to deficiencies that existed in the design or operation of our internal control over financial reporting that adversely affected our internal controls and that may be considered to be material weaknesses.

 

The matters involving internal control over financial reporting that our management considered to be material weaknesses under the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board were: (1) lack of a functioning audit committee due to a lack of a majority of independent members and a lack of a majority of outside directors on our board of directors, resulting in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures; and (2) inadequate segregation of duties consistent with control objectives of having segregation of the initiation of transactions, the recording of transactions and the custody of assets. The aforementioned material weaknesses were identified by our Chief Executive Officer in connection with the review of our financial statements as of December 31, 2020.

 

To address the material weaknesses set forth in items (1) and (2) discussed above, management performed additional analyses and other procedures to ensure that the financial statements included herein fairly present, in all material respects, our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.

 

This Report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm pursuant to the rules of the SEC that permit the Company to provide only the management’s report in this Report.

 

Management’s Remediation Initiatives

 

In response to the above identified weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting, we plan to work on documenting in writing our internal control policies and procedures and implement sufficient segregation of duties within our accounting functions, so that one person cannot initiate, authorize and execute transactions, and so that one person cannot record transactions in the accounting records without sufficient review by a separate person. We do not have a specific timeline within which we expect to conclude these remediation initiatives but do expect it to be an on-going process for the foreseeable future. We continue to evaluate testing of our internal control policies and procedures, including assessing internal and external resources that may be available to complete these tasks, but do not know when these tasks will be completed.

 

26
 

 

Our CEO and CFO, along with other Board members, are and will be active participants in these remediation processes. We believe the steps taken to date have improved the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Changes in internal control over financial reporting.

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15 (f) under the Exchange Act) during the fourth quarter of our fiscal year 2019 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

The Company is periodically engaged in legal proceedings arising from and relating to its business operations. Except as otherwise described herein, we currently are 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 Company’s or our subsidiaries’ officers or directors in their capacities as such, in which an adverse decision could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations.

 

We continue efforts to preserve revenue and reduce operating expenses through actions including, but not limited to, facilities consolidation and staff reductions, which we hope to implement through negotiated transactions with lessors, employees and other third parties. Such actions may result in disputes with and claims by such parties which, if not resolved through negotiations, may impact negatively the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. To date, the Company has negotiated settlement of all ex-employee wage and benefits claims except for two. The first regards unpaid wages claimed due together with interest at the rate of 4% per annum on such amount as the Company originally agreed upon in settlement negotiations. The ex-employee claims additional amounts due for certain statutory damages under the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection which currently could exceed $21,600.00 and would increase at the rate of 2% of the wages due per month plus attorneys’ fees if the employee elects to file suit for a violation of the Act and is successful in obtaining a judgment on his claim.

 

The second claim was filed with the Illinois Department of Labor asserting a violation of the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act by the Company’s former CEO. That claim alleges unpaid wages in the amount of $158,714.60 and unpaid vacation pay in the amount of $20,833.33 for a total amount of $179,547.90, as well as certain statutory damages including, but not limited to, 2% of the wages due per month plus attorneys’ fees if the ex-CEO elects to file suit for a violation of the Act and is successful in obtaining a judgment on his claim. The Company has filed its response to such claim with the Department denying the substantive allegations therein and asserting certain factual and legal defenses, including breach of fiduciary duty, as a bar to all claimed compensation. The claim remains pending, but as the date hereof, no suit has been filed against the Company asserting a violation of the Act based on said claim.

 

On or about June 29, 2020, the Company received notice that Hanover Hoffman Estates, LLC (“HHE”), filed case number 2020L006092 in the Circuit Court of Cook County alleging failure to pay Base Rent and abandonment of certain office space in Hoffman Estates, Illinois subject to a Commercial Lease dated May 26, 2016. HHE seeks at least $672,888 in base rent and other amounts under the lease, as well as treble damages from our ex-CEO and two past Directors who were serving on our Board as of the date of the lease. The Company has continued evaluation of the allegations, defenses and alternate actions, and it is engaged settlement negotiations which are on-going.
