NOTES TO CONDENSED AND CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(unaudited)

 

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

 

NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Sunstock, Inc. (“Sunstock” or “the Company”) was incorporated on July 23, 2012, as Sandgate Acquisition Corporation, under the laws of the State of Delaware to engage in any lawful corporate undertaking, including, but not limited to, selected mergers and acquisitions. On July 18, 2013, the Company changed its’ name from Sandgate Acquisition Corporation to Sunstock, Inc. On the same date, Jason Chang and Dr. Ramnik S Clair were named as directors of the Company.

 

On October 30, 2013, the Company entered into a Purchase Agreement with Dollar Store Services, Inc. to develop, design and build out a retail store which the Company opened in February 2014. The Company opened its second retail store in May 2014. On August 21, 2014 the first store was forced to close due to below code electrical wiring the landlord had provided. Perishable inventory at this store was relocated to the second store as nonperishables were moved into storage along with fixed assets. The Company’s second store was relocated in December of 2015 under lease running through June 2017 and operated on a month to month lease from then until the store was closed in September 2018. The Company currently operates no variety retail stores.

 

On October 22, 2018, Sunstock, Inc. acquired all assets and liabilities of Mom’s Silver Shop, Inc. (the “Retail Store”) located in Sacramento, California. Included in the assets acquired was approximately $60,000 in precious metals inventory and approximately $13,000 in net fixtures. Also included were any licenses and permits, customer lists, logo, trade names, signs, and websites. Financing of the purchase was by $20,056 cash, $33,000 unsecured note payable with principle payments of $1,000 per week for 33 weeks starting January 1, 2019 with 4.5% annual interest accrued on the unpaid balance (total accrued interest due August 27, 2019), and the assumption of liabilities and lease obligations. The Retail Store specializes in buying and selling gold, silver, and rare coins, and is one of the leading precious metals retailers in the greater Sacramento metropolitan area.

 

The Company’s business plan includes the buying, selling and distribution of precious metals, primarily gold. The Company pursues a “ground to coin” strategy, whereby it seeks to acquire mining assets as well as rights to purchase mining production and to sell these metals primarily through retail channels including their own branded coins. The company emphasizes investment in enduring assets that we believe may provide ‘resource to retail’ conversion upside. Our goal is to provide our shareholders with an exceptional opportunity to capture value in the precious metals sector without incurring many of the costs and risks associated with actual mining operations.

 

BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying condensed and consolidated financial statements of Sunstock, Inc. were prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and, therefore, do not include all disclosures required for financial statements prepared in conformity with U.S. GAAP.

 

8

 

 

BASIS OF PRESENTATION (CONTINUED)

 

The accompanying condensed and consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2019, has been derived from audited condensed and consolidated financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP). The accompanying unaudited condensed and consolidated financial statements as of June 30, 2020 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements, and should be read in conjunction with the audited condensed and consolidated financial statements and related notes to the financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 as filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on the opinion of management, all material adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been made to the condensed and consolidated financial statements. The condensed and consolidated financial statements include all material adjustments (consisting of all normal accruals) necessary to make the condensed and consolidated financial statements not misleading as required by Regulation S-X Rule 10-01. Operating results for the six months ended June 30, 2020 are not necessary indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ended December 31, 2020 or any future periods.

 

USE OF ESTIMATES

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with 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 realizability and valuation of inventories and value of stock-based transactions.

 

CONCENTRATION OF RISK

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash. The Company places its cash with high quality banking institutions. The Company did not have cash balances in excess of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation limit as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

 

INVENTORIES

 

COLLECTIBLE COINS – MOM’S SILVER SHOP

 

The Company acquired the Retail Store in October 2018 to enter the market for collectible coins. The Company acquires collectible coins from both companies and individuals and then marks them up for resale. The inventory is recorded at lower of cost or market or net realizable value. Inventory can fluctuate in relation to when it is purchased and when it is sold. Collectible coins inventory was $238,376 at June 30, 2020 compared to $134,995 at December 31, 2019.

 

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.

 

PRECIOUS METALS AND COINS HELD FOR INVESTMENT - SUNSTOCK

 

Inventories of precious metals and coins held for investment at June 30, 2020 also include $421,783 of gold and silver bullion and bullion coins and $397,873 at December 31, 2019 and are acquired and initially recorded at fair market value. The fair market value of the bullion and bullion coins is comprised of two components: 1) published market values attributable to the costs of the raw precious metal, and 2) a published premium paid at acquisition of the metal. The premium is attributable to the additional value of the product in its finished goods form and the market value attributable solely to the premium may be readily determined, as it is published by multiple reputable sources. The Company’s inventory is subsequently recorded at fair market values on a quarterly basis. The fair value of the inventory is determined using pricing and data derived from the markets on which the underlying commodities are traded. Precious metals commodities inventories are classified in Level 1 of the valuation hierarchy. The Company has continuously experienced a shortage of cash and has had significantly past due obligations. While the Company’s preference is to hold the silver bullion to achieve long-term gains, the bullion is available to pay current obligations should the Company not be able to raise cash through issuance of stock or notes payable. Thus, the Company believes that including the silver bullion in current assets under inventory is appropriate.

PRECIOUS METALS AND COINS HELD FOR INVESTMENT – SUNSTOCK (CONTINUED)

 

The change in fair value of the precious metals was included in the financial statements herein as recorded on the Company’s Statements of Operations as an unrealized gain in precious metals of $23,910 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and an unrealized gain of $12,178 for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

 

PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of 3 to 5 years. Any leasehold improvements are amortized at the lesser of the useful life of the asset or the lease term.

 

LONG-LIVED ASSETS

 

The Company reviews the carrying values of its long-lived assets for possible impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. If the expected future cash flow from the use of the asset and its eventual disposition is less than the carrying amount of the asset, an impairment loss is recognized and measured using the fair value of the related asset. No impairment charges were incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019. There can be no assurance, however, that market conditions will not change or demand for the Company’s services will continue, which could result in impairment of long-lived assets in the future.

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION

 

The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”) on January 1, 2019. The new guidance sets forth a new five-step revenue recognition model which replaces the prior revenue recognition guidance in its entirety and is intended to eliminate numerous industry-specific pieces of revenue recognition guidance that have historically existed in U.S. GAAP. The underlying principle of the new standard is that a business or other organization will recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects what it expects to receive in exchange for the goods or services. The standard also requires more detailed disclosures and provides additional guidance for transactions that were not addressed completely in the prior accounting guidance.

 

The Company’s principal activities from which it generates revenue are product sales. Revenue is measured based on considerations specified in a contract with a customer. A contract exists when it becomes a legally enforceable agreement with a customer. These contracts define each party’s rights, payment terms and other contractual terms and conditions of the sale. Consideration is typically paid at time of sale via credit card, check, or cash when products are sold direct to consumers.

 

A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct product to the customer, which for the Company is transfer of a product to customers. Performance obligations promised in a contract are identified based on the goods that will be transferred to the customer that are both capable of being distinct and are distinct in the context of the contract, whereby the transfer of the goods is separately identifiable from other promises in the contract. The Company has concluded the sale of product and related shipping and handling are accounted for as the single performance obligation.

 

The transaction price of a contract is allocated to each distinct performance obligation and recognized as revenue when or as the customer receives the benefit of the performance obligation. The transaction price is determined based on the consideration to which the Company will be entitled to receive in exchange for transferring goods to the customer. We do not issue refunds.

REVENUE RECOGNITION (CONTINUED)

 

The Company recognizes revenue when it satisfies a performance obligation in a contract by transferring control over a product to a customer when product is shipped based on fulfillment by the Company or when a point of sale transaction is completed. Taxes assessed by a governmental authority that are both imposed on and concurrent with a specific revenue-producing transaction, that are collected by the Company from a customer, are excluded from revenue. Shipping and handling costs associated with outbound freight after control over a product has transferred to a customer are accounted for as a fulfillment cost and are included in cost of product sales. The Company does not accept returns.

 

INCOME TAXES

 

The Company accounts for income taxes and the related accounts under the liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between the financial statement carrying amounts and the income tax bases of assets and liabilities. A valuation allowance is applied against any net deferred tax asset if, based on available evidence, it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Therefore, the Company has recorded a full valuation allowance against the net deferred tax assets. The Company’s income tax provision consists of state minimum taxes.

 

The Company recognizes any uncertain income tax positions on income tax returns at the largest amount that is more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon audit by the relevant taxing authority. An uncertain income tax position will not be recognized if it has less than a 50% likelihood of being sustained.

 

There are no unrecognized tax benefits included in the balance sheet that would, if recognized, affect the effective tax rate.

 

The Company’s policy is to recognize interest and/or penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense. The Company had $0 accrued for interest and penalties on each of the Company’s balance sheets at June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

 

EARNINGS (LOSS) PER COMMON SHARE

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share represent income (loss) available to common stockholders divided by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. 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 warrants and have been excluded from the computation of diluted earnings (loss) per share for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and the six months ended June 30, 2020 because they would reduce the reported loss per share and therefore have an anti-dilutive effect.

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2019, there were 462,581,856 potentially dilutive shares that were included in the diluted earnings per share. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, there were no potentially dilutive shares that were included in the diluted loss per share as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2020 there were no potentially dilutive shares that were included in the diluted loss per share as their effect would have been anti-dilutive. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, there were 893,736,264 potentially dilutive shares that were included in the diluted earnings per share.

FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

The Company measures the fair value of certain of its financial assets on a recurring basis. A fair value hierarchy is used to rank the quality and reliability of the information used to determine fair values. Financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value will be classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

 

Level 2 – Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as unadjusted quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities, unadjusted quoted prices in the markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities; and

 

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities, such as derivative liabilities in relation to the conversion feature of notes payable.

 

At June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company’s financial instruments include cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable and accrued expenses. The carrying amount of cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable and accrued expenses approximates fair value due to the short-term maturities of these instruments.

 

NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN

 

The Company has not posted operating income since inception. It has an accumulated deficit of $60,454,626 as of June 30, 2020. 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 and consolidated 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 negotiate with a business entity for the combination of that target company with the Company.

 

There is no assurance that the Company will ever be profitable. The 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.

 

In the first quarter of 2020, outstanding convertible notes payable balances as of December 31, 2019, were either converted to common stock or paid off. In relation to that, the Company has had discussions with a third party in regards to raising funds through a private placement of equity which, if it occurs, will provide the Company with funds to expand its operations and likely eliminate the going concern issue.

NOTE 3 - RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In December 2019, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (Topic 740). The amendments in the update simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing the following exceptions:

 

  1 Exception to the incremental approach for intraperiod tax allocation when there is a loss from continuing operations and income or a gain from other items (for example, discontinued operations or other comprehensive income).
     
  2 Exception to the requirement to recognize a deferred tax liability for equity method investments when a foreign subsidiary becomes an equity method investment.
     
  3 Exception to the ability not to recognize a deferred tax liability for foreign subsidiary when a foreign equity method investment becomes a subsidiary.
     
  4 Exception to the general methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period when a year-to-date loss exceeds the anticipated loss for the year.

 

The amendments in the update also simplify the accounting for income taxes by doing the following:

 

  1 Requiring that an entity recognize a franchise tax (or similar tax) that is partially based on income as an income-based tax and account for any incremental amount incurred as a non-income-based tax.
     
  2 Requiring that an entity evaluate when a step up in the tax basis of goodwill should be considered part of the business combination in which the book goodwill was originally recognized and when it should be considered a separate transaction.
     
  3 Specifying that an entity is not required to allocate the consolidated amount of current and deferred tax expense to a legal entity that is not subject to tax in its separate financial statements. However, an entity may elect to do so (on an entity-by-entity basis) for a legal entity that is both not subject to tax and disregarded by the taxing authority.
     
  4 Requiring that an entity reflect the effect of an enacted change in tax laws or rates in the annual effective tax rate computation in the interim period that includes the enactment date.
     
  5 Making minor Codification improvements for income taxes relating to employee stock ownership plans and investments in qualified affordable housing projects accounted for by using the equity method.

 

The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. The Company believes that adoption of the ASU will not have a material effect on its financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued its new lease accounting guidance in ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). Under the new guidance, lessees will be required to recognize the following for all leases (with the exception of short-term leases) at the commencement date: A lease liability, which is a lessee’s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease, measured on a discounted basis; and a right-of-use asset, which is an asset that represents the lessee’s right to use, or control the use of, a specified asset for the lease term. Under the new guidance, lessor accounting is largely unchanged. Certain targeted improvements were made to align, where necessary, lessor accounting with the lessee accounting model and ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers.

NOTE 3 – RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS (CONTINUED)

 

The new lease guidance simplified the accounting for sale and leaseback transactions primarily because lessees must recognize lease assets and lease liabilities. Lessees will no longer be provided with a source of off-balance sheet financing. Public business entities should apply the amendments in ASU 2016-02 for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early application is permitted. Lessees (for capital and operating leases) must apply a modified retrospective transition approach for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements. The modified retrospective approach would not require any transition accounting for leases that expired before the earliest comparative period presented. Lessees may not apply a full retrospective transition approach. The primary impact to the financial position upon adoption was the recognition, on a discounted basis, of the minimum commitments on the balance sheet under our noncancelable operating lease resulting in the recording of a right of use asset and lease obligation.

 

The following table summarizes the impact of Topic 842 on our condensed consolidated balance sheet upon adoption on January 1, 2019:

 

   January 1, 2019 (unaudited) 
   pre-adoption   adoption impact   post-adoption

The Company believed that the interest would be that applicable to each note. In addition, Power Up included in the motion that the Company establish a reserve of 63,317,183,000 of common shares. The Company believed that Power Up was entitled to either $160,180 plus interest or to common shares, but not both.

On January 9, 2020, $15,000 in accrued interest and default penalty were converted to 24,590,164 shares of common stock. The remaining balance of $24,737.65 was paid by the Company’s CEO, Jason Chang, on January 9, 2020. The Company issued Jason Chang 24,737,650 shares of common stock in settlement of his payment to Power Up. A Stipulation of Discontinuance was filed with the Supreme Court of the State of New York County of Nassau.

 

On January 15, 2020, the Company reached a settlement agreement and mutual general release with Auctus and EMA, in which $425,000 cash was paid in total to both on January 31, 2020 whereby both released the Company of all claims. A Stipulation of Dismissal with Prejudice was filed with the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

 

On January 28, 2020, the Company reached a settlement and release agreement with Crown Bridge, in which $90,000 cash was paid to them on January 31, 2020, whereby Crown Bridge released the Company of all claims. A Stipulation of Dismissal has not been filed as of the date of this report.

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. In connection with 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. 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 sheets.

NOTE 9 – CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE

 

There were no convertible notes payable as of June 30, 2020.

The right to conversion was changed to June 30, 2020 with the extension of note maturity to June 30, 2020. The note and accrued interest of $342 were paid on June 30, 2020.

 

All convertible notes outstanding as of December 31, 2019 (see LITIGATION in Note 8) were either converted to stock or paid during the six months ended June 30, 2020.

 

NOTE 10 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

The Company evaluates its 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.

 

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 for accounting purposes. Accordingly, the Company classified all conversion features as derivative liabilities. All convertible notes with derivative liabilities were either converted to common stock or were settled by payment as of June 30, 2020.

 

The following table presents the changes in fair value of our embedded conversion features measured at fair value on a recurring basis for the six months ended June 30, 2020:

 

Balance December 31, 2019  $3,240,220 
Elimination of fair value due to elimination of debt   (3,240,220)
Balance as of June 30, 2020  $- 

 

Note 11 – SBA LOAN

 

In June 2020, the Company received a $150,000 loan (less $100 expense) from the Small Business Administration (“SBA”). The loan is for thirty years, interest is 3.75% per annum, and payments of $731 are monthly beginning twelve months after closing.

NOTE 13 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

The Company follows the guidance in FASB ASC Topic 855, Subsequent Events (“ASC 855”), which provides guidance to establish general standards of accounting for and disclosures of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before the consolidated financial statements are issued or are available to be issued. ASC 855 sets forth (i) the period after the balance sheet date during which management of a reporting entity evaluates events or transactions that may occur for potential recognition or disclosure in the consolidated financial statements, (ii) the circumstances under which an entity should recognize events or transactions occurring after the balance sheet date in its consolidated financial statements, and (iii) the disclosures that an entity should make about events or transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date.

 

The full impact of the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve as of the date of this report. Management is actively monitoring the global situation on its financial condition, liquidity operations, suppliers, industry, and workforce. Given the daily evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak and the global responses to curb its spread, the Company is not able to estimate the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on its results of operations, financial condition or liquidity for the fiscal year 2020. However, to date there has not been a decrease in sales. The Company believes that in this time of uncertainty, individuals are buying collectible coins as a safe haven. The Company is unable to predict if such buying will continue during this time of uncertainty or if the buying will decrease as events change and evolve.

 

In July 2020, 395,000,000 preferred shares were issued and converted to 395,000,000 common shares.

Overview

 

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

 

On July 18, 2013, the Company changed its’ name from Sandgate Acquisition Corporation to Sunstock, Inc. On the same date, Jason Chang and Dr. Ramnik S Clair were named as directors of the Company.

 

On October 30, 2013, the Company entered into a Purchase Agreement with Dollar Store Services, Inc. to develop, design and build out a retail store which the Company opened in February 2014. The Company opened its second retail store in May 2014. On August 21, 2014 the first store was forced to close due to below code electrical wiring the landlord had provided. Perishable inventory at this store was relocated to the second store as nonperishables were moved into storage along with fixed assets. The Company’s second store was relocated in December of 2015 under lease running through June 2017 and operated on a month to month lease from then until the store was closed in September 2018. The Company currently operates no variety retail stores.

 

On October 22, 2018, the Company acquired all assets and liabilities of the Retail Store of Sacramento, California. Included in the assets acquired was approximately $60,000 in precious metals inventory and approximately $13,000 in net fixtures. Also included were any licenses and permits, customer lists, logo, trade names, signs, and websites. Financing of the purchase was by $20,056 cash, $33,000 unsecured note payable with principle payments of $1,000 per week for 33 weeks starting January 1, 2019 with 4.5% annual interest accrued on the unpaid balance (total accrued interest due August 27, 2019), and the assumption of liabilities and lease obligations. The Retail Store specializes in buying and selling gold, silver, and rare coins, and is one of the leading precious metals retailers in the greater Sacramento metropolitan area.

 

Going Concern

 

The Company has not posted operating income since inception. It has an accumulated deficit of $60,454,626 as of June 30, 2020. 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.

 

In the first quarter of 2020, outstanding convertible notes payable balances as of December 31, 2019, were either converted to common stock or paid off. In relation to that, the Company has had discussions with a third party in regards to raising funds through a private placement of equity which, if it occurs, will provide the Company with funds to expand its operations and likely eliminate the going concern issue.

For the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, cost of sales was $2,437,421 and $1,015,491, respectively, which increase was driven by the increase in revenues as disclosed above. Professional fees increased to $251,253 from $171,700 for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, of which $172,700 was due to services performed in the quarter for stock issued in February 2020.

Interest expense decreased to $18,302 for the three months ended June 30, 2020 from $59,598 for the three months ended June 30, 2019, primarily due to the conversion to common stock and the settlement of all convertible debt as of June 30, 2019 during the rest of 2019 and the six months ended June 30, 2020. Change in fair value of derivative liability was $0 for the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to a decrease of $5,378,969 for the three months ended June 30, 2019. All derivative liability was reversed in the three months ended March 31, 2020 due to all related convertible debt converted to common stock or settled in January 2020.

During the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Company posted a net loss of $362,497 as compared to net income of $5,175,797 for the three months ended June 30, 2019. Such change is primarily related to no change in the fair value of derivative liabilities in 2020 compared to a decrease in 2019.

 

Discussion of the Six Months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019

 

The Company generated revenues during the six months ended June 30, 2020 of $5,207,887 as compared to $1,926,256 in revenues posted for the three months ended June 30, 2019. The increase in revenues is due to increased business at Mom’s Silver Shop, which was acquired in October 2018.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, cost of sales was $5,105,490 and $1,829,404, respectively, which increase was driven by the increase in revenues as disclosed above. Professional fees increased to $727,979 from $618,788 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, of which $445,400 in the six months ended June 30, 2020 was due to services performed in the six months for stock issued in October 2019 and February 2020. Compensation decreased to $707,473 from $4,045,394 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, of which $629,200 in the six months ended June 30, 2020 were for shares issued to the chief executive officer below market price for services and for shares sold to the senior VP below market price and $4,025,650 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 were for the fair value of shares purchased by the chief executive officer below market prices. Other operating expenses increased to $67,682 from $51,808 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Interest expense decreased to $25,342 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 from $125,085 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, primarily due to the conversion to common stock and the settlement of all convertible debt as of June 30, 2019 during the rest of 2019 and the six months ended June 30, 2020. Change in fair value of derivative liability was a decrease of $3,240,220 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 compared to an increase of $1,342,529 for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

24

Gain from settlement increased to $776,315 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 from $0 for the six months ended June 30, 2019. That is the result of settlements of the outstanding December 31, 2019 convertible notes in which the settlements were less than the recorded totals of principal, loan penalties, and accrued interest.

 

Unrealized gain on investments in precious metals increased to $23,910 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 from an unrealized gain of $12,178 for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

 

Other income increased to $1,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 compared to $0 for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The other income was a grant from the United States government.

Such change is primarily related to the writeoff of the fair value of derivative liabilities in 2020 compared to an increase in 2019 , the gain from settlements of convertible notes payable, and the net decreases in fair value of stock issued to our CEO and consultants, offset by loss on settlement of related party debt.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of June 30, 2020, the Company had $62,956 in cash, $219 in accounts receivable, and $660,159 in inventory of precious metals and coins compared to $153,635 in cash, $21,280 in accounts receivable, and $532,868 in inventory at December 31, 2019.

Changes in the adjustments to reconcile net income/(net loss) for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, consist primarily of change in fair value of derivative liability, unrealized loss on investment in precious metals, depreciation, estimated fair value of common stock issued for services, estimated fair value of common stock issued for cash, and gain on settlements of convertible notes payable.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Information not required to be filed by Smaller reporting companies.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

The management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Management must evaluate its internal controls over financial reporting, as required by Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Section 404 (a). The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed under the supervision of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the Company’s financial statements for external purposes in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles or GAAP.

 

As of June 30, 2020, management assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting based on the criteria for effective internal control over financial reporting established in the 2013 Internal Control Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission and SEC guidance on conducting such assessments. Based on that evaluation, they concluded that, during the period covered by this report, such internal controls and procedures were not effective to detect the inappropriate application of GAAP rules as more fully described below. This was due to deficiencies that existed in the design or operation of the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting that adversely affected its internal controls and that may be considered to be material weaknesses.

 

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.

 

2. 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.

 

26 
 

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES (CONTINUED)

 

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

 

4. We have not performed a risk assessment and mapped our processes to control objectives.

 

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 fairly 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. Expand our accounting policy and controls organization by 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.

 

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. When funds permit, 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 such time as those material weaknesses are fully addressed and remediated.

 

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, 2020 based on the criteria establish in Internal Control Integrated Framework issued by the 2013 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, 2020, based on those criteria.
