NOTE 1 - NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Sunstock, Inc. (formerly known as Sandgate Acquisition Corporation) (“Sunstock” or “the Company”) was incorporated on July 23, 2012 under the laws of the State of Delaware to engage in any lawful corporate undertaking, including, but not limited to, selected mergers and acquisitions. Sunstock operations to date have been limited to issuing shares of its common stock. Sunstock may attempt to locate and negotiate with a business entity for the combination of that target company with Sunstock. The combination will normally take the form of a merger, stock-for-stock exchange or stock-for-assets exchange. In most instances, the target company will wish to structure the business combination to be within the definition of a tax-free reorganization under Section 351 or Section 368 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. No assurances can be given that Sunstock will be successful in locating or negotiating with any target company.

 

In December 2014, the Company purchased 100 ounces of silver. In 2015, the Company purchased additional precious metals for $302,429 and shifting more of its capital to the acquisition of precious metals. The Company holds physical coins and bullion rather than contracts for delivery of precious metals or certificates. In time of economic crisis, there may be no guarantee of the delivery of precious metals as contracts and certificates may exceed available stock.

 

Currently, the Company anticipates holding its precious metals as a long-term investment. Depending on market conditions, the Company anticipates holding its silver holdings until the market price exceeds $50. Likewise, the Company does not plan to sell its gold holdings unless the market price exceeds $2,500.

 

BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The condensed balance sheet as of December 31, 2016, which has been derived from audited financial statements and the interim unaudited condensed financial statements as of June 30, 2017 and 2016 have been prepared in accordance with Accounting Principles Generally Accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Form 10-Q and Article 8 of SEC Regulation S-X. These condensed financial statements do not include all the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. Therefore, these unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2016, included in the Company’s Form 10-K.

 

The condensed financial statements included herein as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 are unaudited; however, they contain all normal recurring accruals and adjustments that, in the opinion of the Company’s management, are necessary to present fairly the condensed financial position of the Company as of June 30, 2017, the condensed results of its operations and cash flows for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 and the condensed cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016. The results of operations for three and six months ended June 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year or any future interim periods.

 

USE OF ESTIMATES

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP, requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates made by the Company’s management include but are not limited to valuation of marketable securities, and derivative liabilities, realizability of inventories and value of stock-based transactions.

 

  7  
 

 

INVENTORIES

 

Inventories consist of merchandise for sale and are stated at the lower of cost or market determined on a first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. When a purchase contains multiple copies of the same item, they are stated at average cost.

 

Inventories – silver consists primarily of silver and small amounts of gold held for sale and are stated at cost. Currently, the Company anticipates holding its precious metals as a long-term investment. Depending on market conditions, the Company anticipates holding its silver holdings until the market price exceeds $50. Likewise, the Company does not plan to sell its gold holdings unless the market price exceeds $2,500.

 

At each balance sheet date, the Company evaluates its ending inventory quantities on hand and on order and records a provision for excess quantities and obsolescence. Among other factors, the Company considers historical demand and forecasted demand in relation to the inventory on hand, competitiveness of product offerings, market conditions and product life cycles when determining obsolescence and net realizable value. In addition, the Company considers changes in the market value of components in determining the net realizable value of its inventory. Provisions are made to reduce excess or obsolete inventories to their estimated net realizable values. Once established, write-downs are considered permanent adjustments to the cost basis of the excess or obsolete inventories.

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION

 

The Company recognizes revenues in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Certification (ASC”) Topic 605. Accordingly, the Company recognizes revenues when there is persuasive evidence that an arrangement exists, product delivery and acceptance have occurred, the sales price is fixed or determinable, and collectability of the transaction is assured.

 

EARNINGS (LOSS) PER COMMON SHARE

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share represents income (loss) available to common stockholders divided by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period which excluded unvested restricted stock. Diluted earnings (loss) per share reflects additional common shares that would have been outstanding if dilutive potential common shares had been issued, as well as any adjustment to income (loss) that would result from the assumed issuance. The potential common shares that may be issued by the Company relate to outstanding stock options and have been excluded from the computation of diluted earnings (loss) per share because they would reduce the reported loss per share and therefore have an anti-dilutive effect.

 

As of June 30, 2017, there were no potentially dilutive shares that were excluded from the diluted earnings (loss) per share as their effect would have been antidilutive for each of the periods presented.

 

STOCK BASED COMPENSATION

 

ASC 718 “Compensation - Stock Compensation” prescribes accounting and reporting standards for all stock-based payment awards to employees, including employee stock options, restricted stock, employee stock purchase plans and stock appreciation rights, may be classified as either equity or liabilities. The Company determines if a present obligation to settle the share-based payment transaction in cash or other assets exists. A present obligation to settle in cash or other assets exists if: (a) the option to settle by issuing equity instruments lacks commercial substance or (b) the present obligation is implied because of an entity’s past practices or stated policies. If a present obligation exists, the transaction is recognized as a liability; otherwise, the transaction is recognized as equity.

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation issued to non-employees and consultants in accordance with the provisions of ASC 505-50 “Equity - Based Payments to Non-Employees.” Measurement of share-based payment transactions with non-employees is based on the fair value of whichever is more reliably measurable: (a) the goods or services received; or (b) the equity instruments issued. The fair value of the share-based payment transaction is determined at the earlier of performance commitment date or performance completion date.

 

  8  
 

 

In July 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-11, which eliminates the requirement to classify financial instruments as derivative liabilities simply because they have down round pricing protection. The Company has often issued warrants with down round pricing protection as part of its financing activities. Currently, the Company has convertible notes payable and warrants with down round pricing protection that are classified as derivative liabilities. The Company revalues these warrant tranches each reporting period and records the valuation differences as a component of other income in the statement of operations. The adoption of this ASU will allow the Company to classify its remaining warrant derivatives as equity and future warrants that might be issued by the Company with down round price protection will qualify as equity rather than derivative liability for balance sheet presentation purposes. This ASU is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and early adoption is permitted. The Company is determining the financial impact of this ASU.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

Fair value measurements are determined based on the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. U.S. GAAP establishes a hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. The established fair value hierarchy prioritizes the use of inputs used in valuation methodologies into the following three levels:

 

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets. A quoted price in an active market provides the most reliable evidence of fair value and must be used to measure fair value whenever available.

 

Level 2: Significant other observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.

 

Level 3: Significant unobservable inputs that reflect a reporting entity’s own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. For example, level 3 inputs would relate to forecasts of future earnings and cash flows used in a discounted future cash flows method.

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash, accounts payable, accrued expenses, notes payable, convertible notes payable The carrying value for all such instruments approximates fair value due to the short-term nature of the instruments.

 

The Company uses Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy to measure the fair value of the derivative liabilities and revalues its derivative convertible notes, at every reporting period and recognizes gains or losses in the statements of operations that are attributable to the change in the fair value of the derivative convertible notes.

 

NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN

 

The Company has not posted operating income since inception. It has an accumulated deficit of approximately $25,713,458 as of June 30, 2017. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent on its ability to generate sufficient cash flows from operations to meet its obligations, which it has not been able to accomplish to date, and /or obtain additional financing from its stockholders and/or other third parties.

 

These Condensed financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies the Company will continue to meet its obligations and continue its operations for the next fiscal year. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon financial support from its stockholders, the ability of the Company to obtain necessary equity financing to continue operations, successfully locating and negotiating with an acquisition target.

 

There is no assurance that the Company will ever be profitable. The condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

NOTE 3 - RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which amends ASC Topic 718, Compensation - Stock Compensation. The ASU involves several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, forfeitures, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities and classification on the statement of cash flows. Certain of these changes are required to be applied retrospectively, while other changes are required to be applied prospectively. ASU 2016-09 is effective for public business entities for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within that reporting period. Early adoption will be permitted in any interim or annual period, with any adjustments reflected as of the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption. As a result of the adoption of this ASU as of January 1, 2017, we have made an entity-wide accounting policy election to account for forfeitures when they occur. There is no cumulative-effect adjustment as a result of the adoption of this ASU as our estimated forfeiture rate prior to adoption of this ASU was 0%. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on our condensed financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes. Current U.S. GAAP requires an entity to separate deferred income tax liabilities and assets into current and noncurrent amounts in a classified statement of financial position. To simplify the presentation of deferred income taxes, the amendments in this update require that deferred tax liabilities and assets be classified as noncurrent in a classified statement of financial position. The amendments in this update apply to all entities that present a classified statement of financial position. The current requirement that deferred tax liabilities and assets of a tax-paying component of an entity be offset and presented as a single amount is not affected by the amendments in this update. The amendments in this update will align the presentation of deferred income tax assets and liabilities with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and are effective for fiscal years after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those annual periods. The adoption of this ASU as of January 1, 2017 did not have a material impact on our condensed financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, Inventory (Topic 330): Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory. Topic 330. Inventory, currently requires an entity to measure inventory at the lower of cost or market. Market could be replacement cost, net realizable value, or net realizable value less an approximately normal profit margin. The amendments apply to all other inventory, which includes inventory that is measured using first-in, first-out (FIFO) or average cost. An entity should measure in scope inventory at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Net realizable value is the estimated selling prices in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal, and transportation. The amendments in this ASU more closely align the measurement of inventory in U.S. GAAP with the measurement of inventory in IFRS. For public business entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The amendments should be applied prospectively with earlier application permitted as of the beginning of an interim or annual reporting period. The adoption of this ASU as of January 1, 2017 did not have a material impact on our condensed financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern. This ASU 2014-15 describes how an entity should assess its ability to meet obligations and sets rules for how this information should be disclosed in the condensed consolidated financial statements. The standard provides accounting guidance that will be used along with existing auditing standards. The ASU 2014-15 is effective for the annual period ending after December 15, 2016. Early application is permitted. The adoption of this ASU as of January 1, 2017 did not have a material impact on our condensed financial statements and related disclosures.

 

NOTE 4 - RELATED PARTY BALANCES

 

During the period ended June 30, 2017 and year ended December 31, 2016, the Company was provided a non-interest bearing, non-secured line of credit by a shareholder. The line is due on demand. At June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the Company had net borrowings of approximately $0 and $30,000, respectively, which reflects the payment in full in June 2017 and is still available to draw down and has no formal maturity date. At December 31, 2016, the amount is included in accounts payable in the accompanying condensed balance sheets.

 

See Note 6 for shares of stock issued to related parties.

 

During the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company entered a 19-month lease with the parents of Jason Chang for Corporate office space at $1,200 per month running through December 2018.

In December 2013, the Company issued 75,000 shares of common stock to a third party (the “Shareholder”) for consideration of $16,000. Such consideration was received directly by Jason Chang, CEO, and was not deposited into the Company’s bank account. As the funds had not been received by the Company, such amounts have been recorded as compensation to Mr. Chang as of December 31, 2014 (see Note 5). In April 2014, the Company received notice from the Shareholder that he had filed a lawsuit against the Company and its CEO relating to the delay in the complainants’ stock reaching public listing services. The Company had made efforts to settle this issue, without an agreement being reached. As such, the Company has recorded a loss contingency based on its best estimate of all costs to be incurred for the ultimate settlement of this matter. In June 2016, he Company settled for $82,660 which has been reflected in accrued litigation on the accompanying balance sheet as of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016. Repayment of which is anticipated in the third quarter of 2017.

 

INDEMNITIES AND GUARANTEES

 

The Company has made certain indemnities and guarantees, under which it may be required to make payments to a guaranteed or indemnified party, in relation to certain actions or transactions. The Company indemnifies its directors, officers, employees and agents, as permitted under the laws of the State of Delaware. About its facility leases, the Company has agreed to indemnify its lessors for certain claims arising from the use of the facilities. The duration of the guarantees and indemnities varies, and is generally tied to the life of the agreement. These guarantees and indemnities do not provide for any limitation of the maximum potential future payments the Company could be obligated to make. The Company entered into a lease agreement in December 2015 for 2,700 square feet of retail shop space. The lease requires combined monthly payments of base rent of $1,950 for six months beginning January 2016 with an option for an additional one year running through June of 2017. Currently the Company is on a month to month agreement.

 

Historically, the Company has not been obligated nor incurred any payments for these obligations and, therefore, no liabilities have been recorded for these indemnities and guarantees in the accompanying balance sheet.

On May 24, 2017 the Company entered a Convertible Promissory Note with Auctus Fund, LLC., (“Auctus”) in the principle amount of $112,250 (the “Auctus Note”) The Auctus Note bears interest at the rate of 12% per annum (24% upon an event of default) and is due and payable on February 18, 2018. The principle amount of the Auctus Note and all accrued interest is convertible at the option of the holder at the greater of (a) 55% (a 45% discount) multiplied by the average market price (the trading period preceding 25 days of the conversion date). The variable conversion term was a derivative liability (See Note 7) and the Company recorded approximately $100,000 of debt discount upon issuance. The prepayment amount ranges from 135% to 140% of the outstanding principle plus accrued interest of the note, depending on when such prepayment is made. In addition, the Company recognized legal and set up costs of $12,750 on the funding date which was expensed upon grant.

 

On June 5, 2017, the Company entered a Convertible Promissory Note with EMA Financial, LLC., (“EMA”) (with an issuance date of also May 24, 2017 in the principle amount of $115,000 (the “EMA Note”) The EMA Note bears interest at the rate of 10% per annum (24% upon an event of default) and is due and payable on June 5, 2018. The principle amount of the EMA Note and all accrued interest is convertible at the option of the holder at the greater of (a) 50% (a 50% discount) multiplied by the average market price (the trading period preceding 25 days of the conversion date). The variable conversion term was a derivative liability, see Note 7, and the Company recorded approximately $115,000 of debt discount upon issuance and approximately $38,000 of interest expense based on the fair value of the embedded converstion feature being in excess of the note. The prepayment amount ranges from 135% to 150% of the outstanding principle plus accrued interest of the note, depending on when such prepayment is made. In addition, the Company recognized legal and set up costs of $15,000 on the funding date, which was expensed upon grant.

 

NOTE 7 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

The Company evaluates debt instruments, or other contracts to determine if those contracts or embedded components of those contracts qualify as derivatives to be separately accounted for under the relevant sections of ASC Topic 815-40, Derivative Instruments and Hedging: Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity . The result of this accounting treatment could be that the fair value of a financial instrument is classified as a derivative instrument and is marked-to-market at each balance sheet date and recorded as a liability. In the event that the fair value is recorded as a liability, the change in fair value is recorded in the statement of operations as other income or other expense. Upon conversion or exercise of a derivative instrument, the instrument is marked to fair value at the conversion date and then that fair value is reclassified to equity. Financial instruments that are initially classified as equity that become subject to reclassification under ASC Topic 815-40 are reclassified to a liability account at the fair value of the instrument on the reclassification date.

 

  11  
 

 

Certain of the Company’s embedded conversion features on debt are treated as derivatives for accounting purposes. The Company estimates the fair value of these embedded conversion features using the Black-Scholes Merton option pricing model (“Black-Scholes”) Based on these provisions, the Company has classified all conversion features as derivative liabilities at June 30, 2017.

 

The Company applies the accounting standard that provides guidance for determining whether an equity-linked financial instrument, or embedded feature, is indexed to an entity’s own stock. The standard applies to any freestanding financial instrument or embedded features that have the characteristics of a derivative, and to any freestanding financial instruments that are potentially settled in an entity’s own common stock.

 

From time to time, the Company has issued notes with embedded conversion features. Certain of the embedded conversion features contain price protection or anti-dilution features that result in these instruments being treated as derivatives. Accordingly, the Company has estimated the fair value of these embedded conversion features using Black-Scholes with the following assumptions:

 

   

For the Three months ended

June 30, 2017

 
Annual dividend yield     0 %
Expected life (years)     .95 - 1.5  
Risk-free interest rate     124 %
Expected volatility     110% - 125 %

 

The following table presents the changes in fair value of our warrants and embedded conversion features measured at fair value on a recurring basis for three months ended June 30, 2017:

 

Balance as of December 31, 2016   $ -  
Issuance of embedded conversion features     253,605  
Change in fair value     (144,942 )
Balance as of June 30, 2017   $ 108,663

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

 

Overview

 

Sunstock, Inc., formerly Sandgate Acquisition Corporation (“Sunstock”) was incorporated on July 23, 2012 under the laws of the State of Delaware to engage in any lawful corporate undertaking, including, but not limited to, selected mergers and acquisitions.

 

Management continue to develop the Company for the acquisition and operation of hotels, discount retail stores, and residential properties in the high demand areas of California, particularly Southern California and the San Francisco Bay Area. In December 2014, the Company commenced their investment in precious metals. At June 30, 2017, the Company has $377,662 in the investment account.

 

In analyzing prospective business opportunities, Sunstock may consider such matters as the available technical, financial and managerial resources; working capital and other financial requirements; history of operations, if any; prospects for the future; nature of present and expected competition; the quality and experience of management services which may be available and the depth of that management; the potential for further research, development, or exploration; specific risk factors not now foreseeable but which may be anticipated; the potential for growth or expansion; the potential for profit; the perceived public recognition or acceptance of products, services, or trades; name identification; and other relevant factors. This discussion of the proposed criteria is not meant to be restrictive of the virtually unlimited discretion of Sunstock to search for and enter potential business opportunities.

Going Concern

 

The Company has not posted operating income since inception. It has an accumulated deficit of approximately $25,713,458 as of June 30, 2017. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent on its ability to generate sufficient cash flows from operations to meet its obligations, which it has not been able to accomplish to date, and /or obtain additional financing from its stockholders and/or other third parties.

 

These Condensed financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies the Company will continue to meet its obligations and continue its operations for the next fiscal year. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon financial support from its stockholders, the ability of the Company to obtain necessary equity financing to continue operations, successfully locating and negotiating with an acquisition target.

 

There is no assurance that the Company will ever be profitable. The condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

There have been no material changes from the critical accounting policies as previously discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which amends ASC Topic 718, Compensation - Stock Compensation. The ASU involves several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, forfeitures, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities and classification on the statement of cash flows. Certain of these changes are required to be applied retrospectively, while other changes are required to be applied prospectively. ASU 2016-09 is effective for public business entities for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within that reporting period. Early adoption will be permitted in any interim or annual period, with any adjustments reflected as of the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption. As a result of the adoption of this ASU as of January 1, 2017, we have made an entity-wide accounting policy election to account for forfeitures when they occur. There is no cumulative-effect adjustment as a result of the adoption of this ASU as our estimated forfeiture rate prior to adoption of this ASU was 0%. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on our condensed financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes. Current U.S. GAAP requires an entity to separate deferred income tax liabilities and assets into current and noncurrent amounts in a classified statement of financial position. To simplify the presentation of deferred income taxes, the amendments in this update require that deferred tax liabilities and assets be classified as noncurrent in a classified statement of financial position. The amendments in this update apply to all entities that present a classified statement of financial position. The current requirement that deferred tax liabilities and assets of a tax-paying component of an entity be offset and presented as a single amount is not affected by the amendments in this update. The amendments in this update will align the presentation of deferred income tax assets and liabilities with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and are effective for fiscal years after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those annual periods. The adoption of this ASU as of January 1, 2017 did not have a material impact on our condensed financial statements and related disclosures.

 

  15  
 

 

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, Inventory (Topic 330): Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory. Topic 330. Inventory, currently requires an entity to measure inventory at the lower of cost or market. Market could be replacement cost, net realizable value, or net realizable value less an approximately normal profit margin. The amendments apply to all other inventory, which includes inventory that is measured using first-in, first-out (FIFO) or average cost. An entity should measure in scope inventory at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Net realizable value is the estimated selling prices in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal, and transportation. The amendments in this ASU more closely align the measurement of inventory in U.S. GAAP with the measurement of inventory in IFRS. For public business entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The amendments should be applied prospectively with earlier application permitted as of the beginning of an interim or annual reporting period. The adoption of this ASU as of January 1, 2017 did not have a material impact on our condensed financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern. This ASU 2014-15 describes how an entity should assess its ability to meet obligations and sets rules for how this information should be disclosed in the condensed consolidated financial statements. The standard provides accounting guidance that will be used along with existing auditing standards. The ASU 2014-15 is effective for the annual period ending after December 15, 2016. Early application is permitted. The adoption of this ASU as of January 1, 2017 did not have a material impact on our condensed financial statements and related disclosures.

 

Results of Operations

 

Discussion of the Three Months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016

 

The Company generated revenues during the three months ended June 30, 2017 of $3,189 as compared to $10,102 in revenues posted for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The decrease in revenues is primarily due to the reduced emphasis on retail sales to hotel management focus.

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 cost of sales was $2,261 and $5,883, respectively, which was driven by the decrease in revenues as disclosed above. Operating expenses increased to $6,275,419 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 from $560,991 for the same period of 2016 primarily because of share-based compensation and amortization of prepaid services.

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company posted a net loss of $6,165,261 as compared to a net loss of $477,178 for the three months ended June 30, 2016, such increase is primarily related to an increase in expenses related to increase operating expenses, share-based compensation and amortization of prepaid services.

 

The unrealized loss on investments in precious metals of $35,712 during the three months ended June 30, 2017, is related to the decrease in the market value of the underlying assets held as of June 30, 2017.

 

Discussion of the Six Months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016

 

The Company generated revenues during the six months ended June 30, 2017 of 6,785 as compared to $23,510 in revenues posted for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The decrease in revenues as above is primarily due to the reduced emphasis on retail sales to hotel management focus.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 cost of sales was $4,811 and $12,586, respectively, which was driven by the decrease in revenues as disclosed above.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Information not required to be filed by Smaller reporting companies.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Pursuant to Rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Exchange Act Rules. This evaluation was done as of the end of the fiscal year under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s principal executive officer (who is also the principal financial officer). There have been no significant changes in internal controls or in other factors that could significantly affect internal controls subsequent to the date of the evaluation. Based upon that evaluation, he believes that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective in gathering, analyzing and disclosing information needed to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by the Company in its periodic reports is recorded, summarized and processed timely. The principal executive officer is directly involved in the day-to-day operations of the Company.

 

Management’s Report of Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

The Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting in accordance with the Rule 13a-15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Company’s officer, its president, conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2017 based on the criteria establish in Internal Control Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on this evaluation, management concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of June 30, 2017, based on those criteria. A control system can provide only reasonably, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues have been detected.

 

  17  
 

 

Material Weaknesses:

 

A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

 

The material weaknesses identified are:

 

1. Inadequate number of personnel that could accurately and timely record and report the Company’s financial statements in accordance with GAAP;

 

We did not employ an adequate number of people to ensure a control environment that would allow for the accurate and timely reporting of the financial statements.

 

2. Ineffective controls to ensure that the accounting for transactions are recorded in accordance with GAAP financial statements;

 

During the period ended June 30, 2017, adjustments were made to the general ledger, which collectively could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Notwithstanding the existence of these material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting, we believe that the financial statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q present, in all material respects, our financial condition in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Further, we do not believe the material weaknesses identified had an impact on prior financial statements.

 

Remediation:

 

As part of our ongoing remedial efforts, we have and will continue to, among other things:

 

1. Expanded our accounting policy and controls organization by recently hiring qualified accounting and finance personnel;

 

2. Increase our efforts to educate both our existing and expanded accounting policy and control organization on the application of the internal control structure;

 

3. Emphasize with management the importance of our internal control structure;

 

4. Seek outside consulting services where our existing accounting policy and control organization believes the complexity of the existing exceeds our internal capabilities; and

 

5. Plan to implement improved accounting systems.

 

We believe that the foregoing actions will improve our internal control over financial reporting, as well as our disclosure controls and procedures. We intend to perform such procedures and commit such resources as necessary to continue to allow us to overcome or mitigate these material weaknesses such that we can make timely and accurate quarterly and annual financial filings until those material weaknesses are fully addressed and remediated.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting during its current fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, its internal control over financial reporting.

PART II — OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

There are no other litigation pending or threatened by or against the Company.
