CONVERSION LABS, INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE THREE AND NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2018

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 – NATURE OF THE ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS

 

Nature of Business

 

Conversions Labs, Inc. (“Conversion Labs,” “we,” “us,” “our,” the “Company”) is an internet-based direct response marketing company that in-licenses, acquires and creates innovative and proprietary products that are sold to consumers around the world via our technology infrastructure and relationships with agencies, third party marketers, and online advertising platforms such as Facebook, Google and Amazon. We currently have three commercial stage products including Shapiro MD, a patented shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in foamer for thicker, fuller hair, iNR Wellness MD, a nutritional supplement for immune support and PDF Simpli, a PDF conversion software, which was acquired through the purchase of 51% of the membership interests of LegalSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company, which operates a marketing-driven software solutions business.

 

We launched our online direct marketing business in the fourth quarter of 2015 with the establishment of a partnership with Inate Skincare, LLC (“Inate”). Our initial intention was to launch a skin care line containing our proprietary ingredients and to market such products directly to consumers. We entered into a limited liability company operating agreement with our joint venture partners with respect to Inate under the legal name Immudyne PR LLC (“Immudyne PR”). On April 1, 2016, the original operating agreement of Immudyne PR was amended and restated and we increased our ownership and voting interest in Immudyne PR to 78.2%.

 

During 2016, we utilized third party entities to provide and increase credit card processing capacity and optimize corresponding rates and fees through one or more merchant bank accounts held by such entities. Some of the entities contracted to provide these services had been determined to be variable interest entities (“VIEs”) and were consolidated in the Company’s financial statements. The one (1%) percent fee received by these VIEs was eliminated in consolidation of the net revenues processed and collected by such contractors from sales initiated by the Company. The remaining entities provided such services as independent contractors, the majority of which were considered related parties and no fee was paid. Upon receipt of funds by such contractors from their respective merchant banks, the Company required the prompt transfer of funds to Company controlled accounts. The Company reimbursed and/or advanced funds to such contractors for any deficit or charge related to returns, chargeback and other fees charged by such merchant bank. By our year ended December 31, 2017, we ceased processing credit card charges through all VIE merchant accounts. At December 31, 2017, we recorded the merchant reserves from these VIE merchant accounts on our balance sheet as accounts receivable.

 

As used in these financial statements and unless otherwise indicated, the terms “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to Conversion Labs, Inc. (formerly known as Immudyne, Inc.) and our majority-owned subsidiaries LegalSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company (“LegalSimpli”), Conversion Labs PR, LLC (formerly Immudyne PR LLC), a Puerto Rico limited liability company (“Conversion Labs PR”), and Conversion Labs Asia Limited, a Hong Kong company (“Conversion Labs Asia”). Unless otherwise specified, all dollar amounts are expressed in United States dollars.

 

Acquisition of Membership Interest Purchase Agreement

 

On May 29, 2018, Immudyne PR acquired 51% of the membership interests (the “Membership Interests”) of LegalSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company (“LegalSimpli”), which operates a marketing-driven software solutions business. In consideration for Immudyne PR’s purchase of the Membership Interests, Immudyne PR paid $150,000 (the “Initial Payment”) to the sellers upon execution of the purchase agreement. Additionally, Immudyne PR agreed to pay up to an additional $200,000 for such Membership Interests.

Going Concern

 

The Company has funded operations in the past through the sales of its products, issuance of common stock and through loans and advances from officers and directors. The Company’s continued operations are dependent upon obtaining an increase in its sales volume and the continued financial support from officers and directors or the sale of additional shares of common stock or debt securities. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on the basis that the Company will continue as a going concern, which assumes the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. At September 30, 2018, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximating $11.1 million and has incurred negative cash flows from operations. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Based on the Company’s cash balance at September 30, 2018, and projected cash needs for 2018, management estimates that it will need to increase sales revenue and/or raise additional capital to cover operating and capital requirements for the 2018 fiscal year. Management will need to raise the additional needed funds through increased sales volume, issuing additional shares of common stock or other equity securities, or obtaining debt financing. Although management has been successful to date in raising necessary funding, there can be no assurance that sales revenue will substantially increase or that any required future financing can be successfully completed on a timely basis, or on terms acceptable to the Company.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The Company evaluates the need to consolidate affiliates based on standards set forth in ASC 810 Consolidation (“ASC 810”). The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority owned subsidiary, Conversion Labs PR, its 51% owned LegalSimpli and variable interest entities (VIE’s) in which the Company has been determined to be the primary beneficiary. The non-controlling interest in Conversion Labs PR represents the 21.833% equity interest held by other members of the joint venture. All significant consolidated transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Management’s Representation of Interim Financial Statements

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company without audit pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted as allowed by such rules and regulations, and management believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These consolidated financial statements include all of the adjustments, which in the opinion of management are necessary to a fair presentation of financial position and results of operations. All such adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements at December 31, 2017 and 2016 filed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K with the SEC on April 2, 2018.

 

Variable Interest Entities

 

The Company follows ASC 810-10-15 guidance with respect to accounting for variable interest entities (each, a “VIE”). These entities do not have sufficient equity at risk to finance their activities without additional subordinated financial support from other parties or whose equity investors lack any of the characteristics of a controlling financial interest. A variable interest is an investment or other interest that will absorb portions of a VIE’s expected losses or receive portions of its expected residual returns and are contractual, ownership, or pecuniary in nature and that change with changes in the fair value of the entity’s net assets. A reporting entity is the primary beneficiary of a VIE and must consolidate it when that party has a variable interest, or combination of variable interests, that provides it with a controlling financial interest. A party is deemed to have a controlling financial interest if it meets both of the power and losses/benefits criteria. The power criterion is the ability to direct the activities of the VIE that most significantly impact its economic performance. The losses/benefits criterion is the obligation to absorb losses from, or right to receive benefits from, the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE. The VIE model requires an ongoing reconsideration of whether a reporting entity is the primary beneficiary of a VIE due to changes in facts and circumstances.

 

5

 

 

By our fiscal year ending December 31, 2017, we ceased processing credit card charges through all VIE merchant accounts. At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, we recorded the merchant reserves from these VIE merchant accounts on our balance sheet as accounts receivable.

 

Conversion Labs PR is the primary beneficiary of Innerwell Skincare LLC, Spurs 5, LLC, and Salus LLC, which are qualified as VIEs. The assets and liabilities and revenues and expenses of these VIEs included in the financial statements of Conversion Labs PR and further included in the consolidated financial statements. The assets and liabilities include balances due from and due to the subsidiaries of Conversion Labs PR. These inter-company receivables and payables are eliminated upon consolidation of the VIE with Conversion Labs PR and the Company. No assets were pledged or given as collateral against any borrowings.

 

The Company utilizes third party entities to provide and increase credit card processing capacity and optimize corresponding rates and fees. A majority of these entities provide this service as independent contractors in exchange for a one (1%) percent fee of the net revenues processed and collected by such contractors from sales initiated by the Company. The VIEs consolidated in the Company’s financial statements are primarily contracted to credit card processing through one or more merchant banks contracted by each VIE. Upon receipt of funds by each VIE, the collection of receipts less any returns, chargeback and other fees charged by such merchant bank is transferred to Conversion Labs PR.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The Company prepares its consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America which requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Some of the more significant estimates required to be made by management include the determination of reserves for accounts receivable, returns and allowances, the accounting for derivatives, the valuation of inventory and stockholders’ equity based transactions. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Derivative Liabilities

 

Under ASC 815-40-05, Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to and Potentially Settled in a Company’s Own Stock, in the event the Company does not have a sufficient number of authorized and unissued shares of common stock to satisfy obligations for stock options, warrants and other instruments potentially convertible into common stock, the fair value of these instruments should be reported as a derivative liability. Pursuant to the outstanding option, warrant and convertible debt agreements, there is currently no effective registration statement covering the shares of common stock underlying these agreements, which are currently subject to a cashless exercise whereby the holders, at their option, may surrender their options and warrants to the company in exchange for shares of common stock. The number of shares of common stock into which an option or a warrant would be exchangeable in such a cashless exercise depends on both the exercise price of the options or warrant and the market price of the common stock, each at or near the time of exercise. Because the market price is variable, it is possible that the Company could have insufficient authorized shares to satisfy a cashless exercise. In this scenario, if the Company were unable to obtain shareholder approval to increase the number of authorized shares, the Company could be obligated to settle such a cashless exercise with cash rather than by issuing shares of common stock. Further, ASC 815-40-05 requires that the Company record the potential settlement obligation at each reporting date using the current estimated fair value of these contracts, with any changes in fair value being recorded through our statement of operations. The Company had reported the potential settlement obligation as a derivative liability. In the third quarter of 2017, the Company obtained a majority of shareholders’ approval and amended its Articles of Incorporation to increase the number of shares of its authorized common stock, therefore the derivative liability is no longer applicable.

 

Inventory

 

At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, inventory consisted primarily of finished cosmetic products. Inventory is maintained in a third-party warehouse in Pennsylvania.

 

6

 

 

Inventory is valued at the lower of cost or net realizable value with cost determined on a first-in, first-out (“FIFO”) basis. Management compares the cost of inventory with the net realizable value and an allowance is made for writing down inventory to net realizable, if lower. At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company recorded an inventory reserve in the amount of $12,500 and $12,500, respectively. As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the inventory balances were $507,211 and 681,258, respectively.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company records revenue under the adoption of ASC 606 by analyzing exchanges with its customers using a five-step analysis such as identifying performance obligations in the contract, estimating the amount of variable consideration to include in the transaction price and allocating the transaction price to each separate performance obligation. The Company’s policy is to record revenue as earned when a firm commitment, indicating sales quantity and price exists, delivery has taken place and collectability is reasonably assured. The Company generally records sales of finished cosmetic products once the customer places the order and the product is simultaneously shipped, but in limited cases if title does not pass until the product reaches the customer’s delivery site, then recognition of revenue should be deferred until that time, however the Company does not have a process to properly record the recognition of revenue if orders are not immediately shipped. Delivery is considered to have occurred when title and risk of loss have transferred to the customer. Provisions for discounts, returns, allowances, customer rebates and other adjustments are netted with gross sales. The Company accounts for such provisions during the same period in which the related revenues are earned. Customer discounts, returns and rebates for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, was approximately $133,000 and $353,000, respectively. Customer discounts, returns and rebates for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, was approximately $99,000 and $149,000, respectively. 

 

There are no formal sales incentives offered to any of the Company’s customers. Volume discounts may be offered from time to time to customers purchasing large quantities on a per transaction basis.

Accounts receivable are carried at original invoice amount less an estimate made for holdbacks and doubtful receivables based on a review of all outstanding amounts. Management determines the allowance for doubtful accounts by regularly evaluating individual customer receivables and considering a customer’s financial condition, credit history and current economic conditions and sets up an allowance for doubtful accounts when collection is uncertain. Customers’ accounts are written off when all attempts to collect have been exhausted. Recoveries of accounts receivable previously written off are recorded as income when received. At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the accounts receivable reserve was approximately $0 and $0, respectively. At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the reserve for sales returns and allowances was approximately $33,754 and $23,200, respectively.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company files Corporate Federal and State tax returns, while Conversion Labs PR and LegalSimpli, which were formed as limited liability companies, file separate tax returns with any tax liabilities or benefits passing through to its members.

 

The Company records current and deferred taxes in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes.” This ASC requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for temporary differences between tax basis of assets and liabilities and the amounts at which they are carried in the financial statements, based upon the enacted rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company establishes a valuation allowance when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. The Company periodically assesses the value of its deferred tax asset, a majority of which has been generated by a history of net operating losses and determines the necessity for a valuation allowance. ASC 740 also provides a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. Using this guidance, a company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position in its financial statements only if it is more likely-than-not (i.e., a likelihood of more than 50%) that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position.

The Company’s tax returns for all years since December 31, 2014, remain open to federal and state taxing authorities.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company follows the provisions of ASC 718, “Share-Based Payment”. Under this guidance compensation cost generally is recognized at fair value on the date of the grant and amortized over the respective vesting periods. The fair value of options at the date of grant is estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The expected option life is derived from assumed exercise rates based upon historical exercise patterns and represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. The expected volatility is based upon historical volatility of the Company’s shares using weekly price observations over an observation period that approximates the expected life of the options. The risk-free rate approximates the U.S. Treasury yield curve rate in effect at the time of grant for periods similar to the expected option life. Due to limited history of forfeitures, the estimated forfeiture rate included in the option valuation was zero.

 

Many of the assumptions require significant judgment and any changes could have a material impact in the determination of stock-based compensation expense.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per common share is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during each period presented. Warrants and options to purchase common stock are included as common stock equivalents only when dilutive. Potential common stock equivalents are excluded from dilutive earnings per share when the effects would be antidilutive.

 

Common stock equivalents comprising shares underlying 1,886,454 options and warrants for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively, have not been included in the income per share calculations as the effects are anti-dilutive.

 

Common stock equivalents comprising shares underlying 9,335,800 options and warrants for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, have not been included in the loss per share calculation as the effects are anti-dilutive.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements 

 

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting. The new standard provides guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting in Topic 718. This pronouncement is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017 but early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this guidance.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments (“ASU 2016-15”). ASU 2016-15 addresses eight specific cash flow issues with the objective of reducing diversity in practice regarding how certain cash receipts and cash payments are presented in the statement of cash flows. The standard provides guidance on the classification of the following items: (1) debt prepayment or debt extinguishment costs, (2) settlement of zero-coupon debt instruments, (3) contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, (4) proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims, (5) proceeds from the settlement of corporate-owned life insurance policies, (6) distributions received from equity method investments, (7) beneficial interests in securitization transactions, and (8) separately identifiable cash flows. The Company is required to adopt ASU 2016-15 for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2017 on a retrospective basis. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. We have reviewed ASU 2016-15 and have determined that it will not have any material effect on our financial statements and related disclosures.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which supersedes all existing guidance on accounting for leases in ASC Topic 840. ASU 2016-02 is intended to provide enhanced transparency and comparability by requiring lessees to record right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities on the balance sheet. ASU 2016-02 will continue to classify leases as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the statement of income. ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. ASU 2016-02 is required to be applied with a modified retrospective approach to each prior reporting period presented with various optional practical expedients. We have reviewed ASC 842 and have determined that it will not have any material effect on our financial statements and related disclosures.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements (continued)

 

All other accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by the FASB that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The carrying value of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash, trade accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses and the face amount of notes payable approximate fair value for all periods.

 

Noncontrolling Interests

 

The Company accounts for its less than 100% interests in Conversion Labs PR and LegalSimpli in accordance with ASC Topic 810, Consolidation, and accordingly the Company presents noncontrolling interests as a component of equity on its consolidated balance sheet and reports the noncontrolling interest’s share of the Conversion Labs PR, and LegalSimpli’s net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests in the consolidated statement of operations.

 

Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities

 

In accordance with ASC 810-10-25-37 and as amended by ASU 2009-17, the Company determines whether any legal entity in which the Company becomes involved is a VIE and subject to consolidation. The Company conducts an assessment on an ongoing basis for each VIE including (1) the power to direct activities of the VIE that most significantly impact the VIE’s economic performance, and (2) the obligation to absorb losses or right to receive benefits from the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE. As a result, the Company determined that six entities were VIEs and subject to consolidation.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

The Company grants credit in the normal course of business to its customers. The Company periodically performs credit analysis and monitors the financial condition of its customers to reduce credit risk.

 

The Company monitors its positions with, and the credit quality of, the financial institutions with which it invests. The Company, at times, maintains balances in various operating accounts in excess of federally insured limits.

 

Although the Company does have some wholesale customers, over 90% of the Company’s sales are to unique customers. Since the Company sells its products to thousands of customers, there is no accounts receivable concentration from customers. However, the Company uses merchant processors to charge customer credit cards and does contain concentration risk between credit card processors.

 

As of September 30, 2018, the Company’s accounts receivable had no significant concentration from any one customer.

 

As of September 30, 2018, three credit card processors accounted for 56%, 22% and 20% of accounts receivable.

NOTE 6 – INCOME TAXES

 

At September 30, 2018, the Company has approximately $3,193,000 of operating loss carryforwards for federal that may be applied against future taxable income. The net operating loss carryforwards will begin to expire in the year 2021 if not utilized prior to that date, expiring during various years through 2037. There is no provision for income taxes because the Company has historically incurred operating losses and maintains a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets.

 

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Act”) was enacted on December 22, 2017. The Act reduces the US federal corporate tax rate from 34% to 21%. The most significant impact of the legislation for the Company was a $242,000 reduction of the value of net deferred tax assets (which represent future tax benefits) as a result of lowering the U.S. corporate income tax rate from statutory rate of 34% to 21%.

 

The valuation allowance overall decreased by approximately $422,016 during the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The Company has fully reserved the deferred tax asset resulting from available net operating loss carryforwards.

Under ASC 815-40-05, Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to and Potentially Settled in a Company’s Own Stock, in the event the Company does not have a sufficient number of authorized and unissued shares of common stock to satisfy obligations for stock options, warrants and other instruments potentially convertible into common stock, the fair value of these instruments should be reported as a liability. Pursuant to the outstanding option, warrant and convertible debt agreements, there is currently no effective registration statement covering the shares of common stock underlying these agreements, which are currently subject to a cashless exercise whereby the holders, at their option, may surrender their options and warrants to the company in exchange for shares of common stock. The number of shares of common stock into which an option or a warrant would be exchangeable in such a cashless exercise depends on both the exercise price of the options or warrant and the market price of the common stock, each at or near the time of exercise. Because the market price is variable, it is possible that we could have insufficient authorized shares to satisfy a cashless exercise. In this scenario, if we were unable to obtain shareholder approval to increase the number of authorized shares, we could be obligated to settle such a cashless exercise with cash rather than by issuing shares of common stock. Further, ASC 815-40-05 requires that we record the potential settlement obligation at each reporting date using the current estimated fair value of these contracts, with any changes in fair value being recorded through our statement of operations. We reported the potential settlement obligation as a liability until such time as these contracts are exercised or expire or we are otherwise able to modify the agreements to remove the provisions which require this treatment. On September 21, 2017, the Company filed an amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State increasing the number of authorized shares of the Company’s common stock from 50,000,000 to 100,000,000, which enabled the Company to reclassify the derivative liability.

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes a number of forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (the “Exchange Act”) that reflect management’s current views with respect to future events and financial performance.

Corporate History and Overview

 

We are an internet-based direct response marketing company that in-licenses, acquires and creates innovative and proprietary products that are sold to consumers around the world via our technology infrastructure and relationships with agencies, third party marketers, and online advertising platforms such as Facebook, Google and Amazon. We currently have three commercial stage products as follows:

 

Shapiro MD: Launched in the second quarter of 2017, Shapiro MD is a patented shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in foamer for thicker, fuller hair.
iNR Wellness MD: Launched in the first quarter of 2018, iNR Wellness MD is a nutritional supplement for immune support.
PDF Simpli: Launched in the second quarter of 2018, PDF Simpli is a PDF conversion software, which was acquired through the purchase of 51% of the membership interests of LegalSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company, which operates a marketing-driven software solutions business.

 

We launched our online direct marketing business in the fourth quarter of 2015 with the establishment of a partnership with Inate Skincare, LLC (“Inate”). Our initial intention was to launch a skin care line containing our proprietary ingredients and to market such products directly to consumers. We entered into a limited liability company operating agreement with our joint venture partners with respect to Inate under the legal name Immudyne PR LLC (“Immudyne PR”). On April 1, 2016, the original operating agreement of Immudyne PR was amended and restated and we increased our ownership and voting interest in Immudyne PR to 78.2%.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2017, we manufactured, distributed and sold natural immune support products; namely proprietary yeast beta glucans which are natural extracts that have been shown through testing and analysis and scientific research to support the immune system. Yeast beta glucans are classified as generally recognized as safe (“GRAS”) by the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). Our products are used in oral and topical applications. Historically, we have sold our proprietary additives, for both oral and topical use, and focused primarily via business-to-business to large dietary supplement and cosmetic companies.

 

Our priority is to pursue opportunities to market our products and increase sales. We expect that a significant component of our selling, general and administration expenses going forward will consist of service fees to maintain skilled professionals to market our products online, as well as conducting analysis on market trends and dynamically change our approach to drive sales. These aforementioned costs, along with the additional costs resulting from our operations as a public reporting company, could adversely impact our future results of operations. Additional significant factors that we believe will affect our operating results going forward are: (i) protection of our intellectual property rights; (ii) imposition of more stringent government regulations of our products; and (iii) direct marketing expenses.

 

During 2016, we utilized third party entities to provide and increase credit card processing capacity and optimize corresponding rates and fees through one or more merchant bank accounts held by such entities. Some of the entities contracted to provide these services had been determined to be variable interest entities (“VIEs”) and were consolidated in the Company’s financial statements. The one (1%) percent fee received by these VIEs was eliminated in consolidation of the net revenues processed and collected by such contractors from sales initiated by the Company. The remaining entities provided such services as independent contractors, the majority of which were considered related parties and no fee was paid. Upon receipt of funds by such contractors from their respective merchant banks, the Company required the prompt transfer of funds to Company controlled accounts. The Company reimbursed and/or advanced funds to such contractors for any deficit or charge related to returns, chargeback and other fees charged by such merchant bank. By our year ending December 31, 2017, we ceased processing credit card charges through all VIE merchant accounts. At December 31, 2017, we recorded the merchant reserves from these VIE merchant accounts on our balance sheet as accounts receivable.

 

We historically have expended a significant amount of our funds on obtaining and protecting our patents, trade secrets and proprietary products. We rely on the patent and trademark protection laws in the U.S. to protect our intellectual property and maintain our competitive position in the marketplace.

 

23

 

 

We have historically operated with limited capital and have funded operations in the past through the sales of our products and loans and advances from our executives and directors. Late in the year ended 2016 and early in 2017, the Company issued several 11% subordinated promissory notes to accredited investors for total borrowings of $200,000, which were satisfied in 2016 and 2017. In late 2017, we obtained $125,000 in promissory notes from our executive officers, which were satisfied in early 2018. We plan on our operating business (in conjunction with proceeds from debt and equity financings completed in 2016 and early 2017) to be able to fund operations through 2018. However, in the event we require additional operating capital, we may have to depend on sources other than operating revenues to meet our operating and capital needs. No assurance can be given that such sources will be available, and no assurance can be given that our executive officers or other directors who have, in the past, willingly funded operations will commit to do so in the future, or that we will be successful in our endeavors to raise additional capital. For additional information regarding these and other risks please see “Risk Factors” contained in our annual report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 and filed with the SEC on April 2, 2018.

 

Divestiture of Nutraceutical and Cosmetic Additives Business

 

Throughout 2017, we manufactured, distributed and sold natural immune support products containing our proprietary yeast beta glucans, a group of beta glucans naturally occurring in the cell walls of yeast that have been shown through testing and analysis to support the immune system. Beta glucans, or β-Glucans, are a natural extract that are considered to be “biological response modifiers” that support the immune system. The most common sources of beta glucans are from the cell walls of baker’s yeast, the cellulose in plants, the bran of cereal grains and certain fungi and bacteria.

 

In 2017, our yeast beta glucan nutraceutical and cosmetic product lines consisted of our natural, premium yeast beta glucans in oral and topical applications. We offered our yeast beta glucans as natural raw material ingredients in bulk quantities under our “Nutraceutical and Cosmetic Additives” segment, and finished, consumer products packaged under our brands as well as private label brands under our “Finished Cosmetic Products” segment, which were marketed directly to consumers.

 

In the first quarter of 2018 we sold assets and certain liabilities related to our legacy business that manufactured raw yeast beta glucan. As a result of this divestiture, we now solely operate our online direct marketing business owned by Conversion Labs PR.

 

Acquisition of Membership Interest Purchase Agreement

 

On May 29, 2018, Conversion Labs PR acquired 51% of the membership interests (the “Membership Interests”) of LegalSimpli Software, LLC, which operates a marketing-driven software solutions business. In consideration for Conversion Labs PR’s purchase of the Membership Interests, Conversion Labs PR paid $150,000 (the “Initial Payment”) to the sellers upon execution of the purchase agreement. Additionally, Conversion Labs PR may be obligated to pay up to an additional $200,000 in accordance with the following milestones (the “Milestones”):

 

(i)$100,000 to the sellers on the 90-day anniversary of the Purchase Agreement, so long as LSS’s gross revenue for the preceding 30-day period is equal to or greater than $75,000; and
(ii)$100,000 to the sellers on the 180-day anniversary of the purchase agreement, so long as LSS’s gross revenue for the preceding 30-day period is equal to or greater than $150,000, with a minimum net profit margin of 25% in each instance.

 

On September 16, 2018, we modified our agreement with LegalSimpli so that LegalSimpli shall be paid such amounts, regardless of whether the Milestones are achieved.  In addition, regardless of whether LegalSimpli achieves any such Milestones, Conversion Labs PR will retain full ownership of the Membership Interests.

 

Significant Developments During and Subsequent to the Three Months Ended September 30, 2018

 

Amended and Restated Operating Agreement of Conversion Labs PR LLC

 

On July 23, 2018, we entered into an Amended and Restated Operating Agreement of Conversion Labs PR (formerly “Immudyne PR LLC”), the Company’s majority-owned subsidiary (the “Amended Operating Agreement”). Amendments to the Amended Operating Agreement were made specifically to (i) correct existing ambiguities; and (ii) to define the preferred equity interest to be issued to Mr. Sean Fitzpatrick by Conversion Labs PR in connection with his appointment as the Company’s Chief Acquisition Officer.

Pursuant to the Fitzpatrick Employment Agreement, by and between the Company, Conversion Labs PR and Mr. Fitzpatrick, Mr. Fitzpatrick will receive an annual base salary of Seventy-Two Thousand Dollars ($72,000) (the “Base Salary”). Mr. Fitzpatrick will receive from Conversion Labs PR a preferred equity interest issued by Conversion Labs PR which is equal to the lesser of 100% of the Qualifying Cash (as defined in the Amended Operating Agreement) available for distribution during any month and $6,000.00, subject to the terms of the Amended Operating Agreement (the “Equity Interest”). The Equity Interest is not payable by the Company and will not be reflected in the Company’s books and records. In addition, Mr. Fitzpatrick will be eligible for a performance based bonus payable in cash is to be determined within the first ninety (90) days of Fitzpatrick’s employment. As a full-time employee of the Company, Mr. Fitzpatrick will be eligible to participate in all of the Company’s benefit programs. We or Mr. Fitzpatrick may terminate the employment of Mr. Fitzpatrick at any time and for any reason, with or without notice. In the event of termination, Mr. Fitzpatrick shall be entitled to all option shares vested prior to the date of termination. The Fitzpatrick Agreement is for a term of five (5) years commencing on July 23, 2018 (the “Term”). Mr. Fitzpatrick will also receive a warrant (the “Fitzpatrick Warrant”) to purchase five million (5,000,000) shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”), exercisable for a period of ten (10) years at an exercise price of $0.30 per share which vests pursuant to the vesting schedule contained in the Fitzpatrick Warrant.

Net Sales

 

Sales were approximately $2.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, compared to approximately $2.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The increase of approximately 22% is attributed mainly to more resources being invested into our in-licensed patented hair loss shampoo, conditioner, and leave in foam continuing to increase during the third quarter of 2018.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Total cost of sales was approximately $439,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2018, compared to approximately $536,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The decrease in our cost of sales was mainly due to better inventory pricing and margin of our in-licensed patented hair loss shampoo, conditioner, and leave in foam during the third quarter of 2018. Cost of sales consists primarily of material costs and related overhead directly attributable to the production of our products. Cost of Sales as a percentage of income decreased as we were able to take advantage of volume pricing discounts from our vendors.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit was approximately $2.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, compared to approximately $961,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2017, an increase of approximately 36%. The increase in our gross profit was a result of the increased sales of our in-licensed patented hair loss shampoo, conditioner and leave-in foam.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Total operating expenses increased approximately 39% to approximately $2.50 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, from approximately $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017The increase in our operating expenses between the periods was mostly attributable to our increased marketing efforts for our in-licensed patented hair loss shampoo, conditioner and leave-in foam, which increased approximately $525,000 over from the three-months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the three-months ended September 30, 2017. We also had increased professional fees, however lower general and administrative and compensation and related expense costs during the comparable period.

 

Net Loss

 

Net loss from continuing operations for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was approximately $586,000, compared to net income from continuing operations of approximately $652,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. Our net loss from continuing operations for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was mostly attributable to our increased marketing efforts, whereas our net income from continuing operations for the three months ended September 30, 2017 was mostly attributable to the change in fair value of derivative liability, offset by mostly general and administrative expenses as we incurred costs while launching the online marketing of products.

The increase of approximately 71% is attributed mainly to more resources being invested into our in-licensed patented hair loss shampoo, conditioner, and leave in foam during the third quarter of 2018.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Total cost of sales was approximately $1.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to approximately $1.1 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The increase in our cost of sales was mainly due to increased sales as of our in-licensed patented hair loss shampoo, conditioner, and leave in foam during the third quarter of 2018.

Cost of Sales as a percentage of income decreased as we were able to take advantage of volume pricing discounts from our vendors.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit was approximately $4.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to approximately $2.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, an increase of approximately 91%.

Total operating expenses increased approximately 81% to approximately $6.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, from approximately $3.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017The increase in our operating expenses between the periods was mostly attributable to our increased marketing efforts for our in-licensed patented hair loss shampoo, conditioner and leave-in foam, which increased approximately $2.4 million over from the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the nine-months ended September 30, 2017. The increase was partially offset by decreases in compensation expenses and professional fees, and lower general and administrative costs during the comparable period.

Net Loss

 

Net loss from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was approximately $15 million compared to net income from continuing operations of approximately $1.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. Our net loss from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was mostly attributable to our increased marketing efforts, whereas our net income from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was mostly attributable to the change in fair value of derivative liability, offset by mostly general and administrative expenses as we incurred costs of while launching the online marketing of products. As a result of the sale of our Nutraceutical and Cosmetic Additives business, we recorded net income from discontinued operations of approximately $926,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 versus net income from discontinued operations of approximately $0 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. We consolidated the operations of our joint venture, Conversion Labs PR and reflected a non-controlling interest for 21.8333% of these operations. Net loss attributable to the Company as a percentage of sales was approximately 17% for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to net income as a percentage of sales of approximately 89% for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. Our net loss during the period was mostly attributable to the increasing in marketing efforts.

Working capital  $864,351   $622,839 

  

We had positive net working capital of $864,351 at September 30, 2018, resulting in an increase  of $241,512 in working capital from net working capital of $622,839 at December 31, 2017. The ratio of current assets to current liabilities was 2.23 to 1 at September 30, 2018.

 

Cash Flows

 

The following table sets forth a summary of changes in cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017:

 

   Nine Months Ended
September 30,
 
   2018   2017 
Net cash used in operating activities  $(489,201)  $(315,689)
Net cash used in investing activities   241,445    - 
Net cash provided by financing activities   513,649    695,888 
Change in cash  $265,893   $380,199 

 

Operating Activities

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $489,201 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 primarily due to the net loss of $594,892 and a gain on discontinued operations of $918,537, partially offset by accounts payable and accrued expenses.

 

28

 

 

Net cash from operating activities was $315,689 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. Cash from operating activities during the three months ended August 31, 2017 was primarily due to the net loss of $1,028,131, offset by loss on settlement of notes and other payables and common stock issued for services.

 

Investing Activities

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, net cash used in investing activities was $241,445 from the proceeds from the sale of the Company’s legacy business.

 

Financing Activities

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, net cash provided by financing activities was $513,649, of which $550,000 was received from the issuance of convertible notes, partially offset by repayments of notes payable totaling $167,479.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, net cash used in financing activities was $695,888, of which $673,245 was for sale of common stock and warrants, partially offset by $250,463 for payment of notes payable.

 

Going Concern and Future Financing

 

Our principal demands for liquidity are to increase sales via online marketing, purchase inventory and for sales distribution and general corporate purposes. We incurred negative operating cash flows of our continued operations to date in 2018 as well as in the 2017 fiscal year. As a result, we have substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. In early in 2017, the Company issued several 11% subordinated promissory notes to accredited investors for total borrowings of $200,000. Additionally, the Company borrowed $200,000 at 11% from an investor and borrowed $100,000 from an officer of the Company. In late 2017, the Company borrowed $125,000 from its executives. Each of these borrowings have since been satisfied in full with a combination of repayment in cash and conversion of certain amounts outstanding to equity of the Company.

 

We will require additional funds to implement our growth strategy for our business. In addition, while we have received capital from various private placements and convertible loans that have enabled us to fund our operations, these funds have been largely used to supplement our working capital, although additional funds are needed for other corporate operational and working capital purposes. At this time and at our current burn rate, we have sufficient capital to fund our operations through the balance of this fiscal year. At this time, we have not determined the amount that may be needed. These funds may be raised through equity financing, debt financing, or other sources, which may result in further dilution in the equity ownership of our shares. There can be no assurance that additional financing will be available to us when needed or, if available, that it can be obtained on commercially reasonable terms. If we are not able to obtain the additional financing on a timely basis should it be required, or generate significant material revenues from operations, we will not be able to meet our other obligations as they become due and we will be forced to scale down or perhaps even cease our operations.

 

Equity Financings

 

In March 2018, the Company issued 500,000 shares of common stock valued at $120,000 to a consultant for over a one-year term. In May 2018, the Company amended the agreement with the consultant whereby the Company rescinded the 500,000 shares of common stock and reissued 250,000 shares of common stock. The 250,000 shares of common stock issued on May 14, 2018, were valued at $62,500.

Debt Financings

 

In January 2017, the Company borrowed $200,000 and issued a promissory note with a 5% original issue discount for a total principal amount of $210,000. The loan incurred 11% interest per annum and matured in various tranches from February 2017 through April 2017. In addition, the Company issued 217,391 shares of common stock related to this note. In February 2017, the Company repaid $70,000 of the principal balance of this note. In March 2017, the Company converted the remaining $140,000 of the principal balance of this note and accrued interest of $2,212 in exchange for 559,179 shares of common stock and 304,348 warrants to purchase shares of common stock which satisfied the note in full. The fair market value of the shares and warrants issued upon conversion was determined to be $566,030, of which $423,818 was included in loss on extinguishment of debt.

 

In February 2017, the Company borrowed $25,000 from an American Express working capital line with 60 days maturity. The interest for this loan is a flat fee of $250. On April 17, 2017, the Company repaid this loan. In June 2017, the Company borrowed $74,043 from an American Express working capital line with 90 days maturity. The interest for this loan is a flat fee of $1,111. On August 30, 2017, the Company repaid this loan. In September 2017, the Company borrowed $77,333 from an American Express working capital line with 90 days maturity. The interest for this loan is a flat fee of $1,160. In November 2017, $42,479 was drawn from the line of credit and $78,493 was paid back in December 2017. In the first quarter of 2018 the Company repaid this loan.

 

In May 2018, the Company borrowed $550,000 and issued convertible notes payable with a maturity date of May 28, 2019. These notes accrue interest at a rate of 12% compounded annually. The conversion price for these notes is $0.23 per share of common stock, subject to adjustment. In the event the average VWAP (as defined) for the consecutive five trading days preceding but not including the six month anniversary of the original issue date of the note is less than the then conversion price in effect on such six month anniversary date, then the conversion price shall be reduced to 80% of the VWAP for the ten trading days following (but not including) such six month anniversary date, subject to further reduction. In addition, the Company issued warrants to purchase up to 2,391,305 shares of common stock at a price of $0.28 per share. The fair value of the warrants were determined to be $533,691 and were recorded as a debt discount to be amortized over the life of the note.

 

On November 20, 2017, the Company entered into an agreement (the “Agreement”) with JOJ Holdings, LLC (“JOJ”). Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Company purchased 2,000,000 shares (post-split from a 2:1 forward split on January 16, 2018) of Blockchain Industries, Inc. (“BCII”) from JOJ. The Agreement was amended on December 8, 2017 and again on March 9, 2018. In consideration for the purchase, the Company agreed to issue one (1) share of its common stock to JOJ for every dollar the Company realizes from gross proceeds on the sale of shares of BCII purchased pursuant to the Agreement, up to a total maximum aggregate amount of 5,000,000 shares. The Company has 3 years to sell the shares of BCII and has agreed not to sell more than 20% of the 30- day average daily trading volume of BCII. Justin Schreiber, the Company’s President and CEO, is the President and owner of JOJ. The initial assessment of this transaction was determined not to meet the basis of an exchange transaction per ASC 845-10-20. The Company will reassess the off-balance sheet arrangement at each reporting period to determine the any change in the accounting as an off-balance sheet arrangement.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (who is our Principal Executive Officer) and our Chief Financial Officer (who is our Principal Financial Officer and Principal Accounting Officer), of the effectiveness of the design of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined by Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e)) as of September 30, 2018 pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 13a-15. Based upon that evaluation, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of September 30, 2018 in ensuring that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. This conclusion is based on findings that constituted material weaknesses. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of control deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

 

In performing the above-referenced assessment, management identified the following deficiencies in the design or operation of our internal controls and procedures, which management considers to be material weaknesses:

 

(i) Lack of Formal Policies and Procedures. We utilize a third party independent contractor for the preparation of our financial statements. Although the financial statements and footnotes are reviewed by our management, we do not have a formal policy to review significant accounting transactions and the accounting treatment of such transactions. The third party independent contractor is not involved in the day to day operations of the Company and may not be provided information from management on a timely basis to allow for adequate reporting/consideration of certain transactions.

 

(ii) Insufficient Written Policies and Procedures. We have insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both US GAAP and SEC Guidelines.

 

(iii) No Written Whistleblower Policy. We have no written whistleblower policy.

 

(iv) Audit Committee and Financial Expert. We do not have a formal audit committee with a financial expert, and thus we lack the board oversight role within the financial reporting process.

 

(v) Insufficient Resources. We have insufficient quantity of dedicated resources and experienced personnel involved in reviewing and designing internal controls. As a result, a material misstatement of the interim and annual financial statements could occur and not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

 

(vi) Entity Level Risk Assessment. We did not perform an entity level risk assessment to evaluate the implication of relevant risks on financial reporting, including the impact of potential fraud related risks and the risks related to non-routine transactions, if any, on internal control over financial reporting. Lack of an entity-level risk assessment constituted an internal control design deficiency which resulted in more than a remote likelihood that a material error would not have been prevented or detected and constituted a material weakness.

 

Our management feels the weaknesses identified above have not had any material effect on our financial results. However, we are currently reviewing our disclosure controls and procedures related to these material weaknesses, and expect to implement changes in the near term, as resources permit, in order to address these material weaknesses. Our management will continue to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of our internal controls and procedures and our internal controls over financial reporting on an ongoing basis and is committed to taking further action and implementing additional enhancements or improvements, as necessary and as funds permit.

 

31

 

 

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.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended September 30, 2018 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
