Blue Line Protection Group, Inc.
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)

Note 1 – History and organization of the company

The Company was originally organized on September 11, 2006 (Date of Inception) under the laws of the State of Nevada, as The Engraving Masters, Inc.  The Company was authorized to issue up to 100,000,000 shares of its common stock and 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock, each with a par value of $0.001 per share.

On March 14, 2014, the Company acquired Blue Line Protection Group, Inc., a Colorado corporation formed in February 2014 ("Blue Line Colorado"), as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.  Blue Line Colorado provides protection, compliance and financial services to the lawful cannabis industry.

On May 2, 2014, the Company changed its name from The Engraving Masters, Inc. to Blue Line Protection Group, Inc. ("BLPG")

On May 6, 2014, the Company effected a forward stock split and a pro-rata increase in its authorized common stock on a basis of 14-to-1, whereby each shareholder received 14 newly issued shares of common stock for each 1 share held.  Additionally, the authorized capital of the Company concurrently increased to 1,400,000,000 shares of common stock.  All references to share and per share amounts in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes thereto have been retroactively restated to reflect the forward stock split.

The Company provides armed protection, logistics, and compliance services for businesses engaged in the legal cannabis industry.  The Company offers asset logistic services, such as armored transportation service; security services, including shipment protection, money escorts, security monitoring, asset vaulting, VIP and dignitary protection, financial services, such as handling transportation and storage of currency; training; and compliance services.

Note 2 – Accounting policies and procedures

Interim financial statements

The unaudited interim financial statements included herein, presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles and stated in US dollars, have been prepared by the Company, without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading.

These statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for fair presentation of the information contained therein.  It is suggested that these interim financial statements be read in conjunction with the financial statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2016 and notes thereto included in the Company's annual report on Form 10-K.  The Company follows the same accounting policies in the preparation of interim reports.

Results of operations for the interim periods are not indicative of annual results.
 
Reclassification
 
Certain amounts from prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.

Principles of consolidation
 
For the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, the consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Blue Line Protection Group, Inc. (formerly The Engraving Masters, Inc.), Blue Line Advisory Services, Inc. (a Nevada corporation; "BLAS"), Blue Line Capital, Inc. (a Colorado corporation; "Blue Line Capital"), Blue Line Protection Group (California), Inc. (a California corporation; "Blue Line California"), Blue Line Colorado, Blue Line Protection Group Illinois, Inc. (an Illinois corporation; "Blue Line Illinois"), BLPG, Inc. (a Nevada corporation; "Blue Line Nevada"), Blue Line Protection Group (Washington), Inc. (a Washington corporation; "Blue Line Washington").  All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.   BLPG and its subsidiaries are collectively referred herein to as the "Company."

Basis of presentation

The financial statements present the balance sheets, statements of operations, stockholder's equity (deficit) and cash flows of the Company. The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.

The Company has adopted December 31 as its fiscal year end.
    
Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.
   
Cash and cash equivalents

The Company maintains a cash balance in a non-interest-bearing account that currently does not exceed federally insured limits.  For the purpose of the statements of cash flows, all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less are considered to be cash equivalents.  There were no cash equivalents as of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016.

Accounts receivable

Accounts receivable are stated at the amount the Company expects to collect from outstanding balances and do not bear interest.  The Company provides for probable uncollectible amounts through an allowance for doubtful accounts, if an allowance is deemed necessary.  The allowance for doubtful accounts is the Company's best estimate of the amount of probable credit losses in the Company's existing accounts receivable; however, changes in circumstances relating to accounts receivable may result in a requirement for additional allowances in the future.  On a periodic basis, management evaluates its accounts receivable and determines the requirement for an allowance for doubtful accounts based on its assessment of the current and collectible status of individual accounts with past due balances over 90 days.  Account balances are charged against the allowance after all collection efforts have been exhausted and the potential for recovery is considered remote.

Allowance for uncollectible accounts

The Company estimates losses on receivables based on known troubled accounts, if any, and historical experience of losses incurred. There was no allowance for doubtful customer receivables at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016.
 

7


Property and equipment

Property and equipment is recorded at cost and capitalized from the initial date of service.  Expenditures for major additions and improvements are capitalized and minor replacements, maintenance, and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.  When property and equipment is retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any resulting gain or loss is included in the results of operations for the respective period.  Depreciation is provided over the estimated useful lives of the related assets using the straight-line method for financial statement purposes.  The Company uses other depreciation methods (generally accelerated) for tax purposes where appropriate.  The estimated useful lives for significant property and equipment categories are as follows:
 
Automotive Vehicles
5 years
Furniture and Equipment
7 years
Buildings and Improvements
15 years

The Company reviews the carrying value of property and equipment for impairment whenever events and circumstances indicate that the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable from the estimated future cash flows expected to result from its use and eventual disposition.  In cases where undiscounted expected future cash flows are less than the carrying value, an impairment loss is recognized equal to an amount by which the carrying value exceeds the fair value of assets.  The factors considered by management in performing this assessment include current operating results, trends and prospects, the manner in which the property is used, and the effects of obsolescence, demand, competition and other economic factors.  Based on this assessment there was no impairment as March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016.  Depreciation expense for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 totaled $12,171 and $10,559, respectively.
 
Impairment of long-lived assets

The Company accounts for its long-lived assets in accordance with ASC Topic 360-10-05, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets." ASC Topic 360-10-05 requires that long-lived assets be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the historical cost or carrying value of an asset may no longer be appropriate. The Company assesses recoverability of the carrying value of an asset by estimating the future net cash flows expected to result from the asset, including eventual disposition. If the future net cash flows are less than the carrying value of the asset, an impairment loss is recorded equal to the difference between the asset's carrying value and its fair value or disposable value. As of December 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company determined that none of its long-term assets were impaired.
   
Concentration of business and credit risk

The Company has no significant off-balance sheet risk such as foreign exchange contracts, option contracts or other foreign hedging arrangements. The Company's financial instruments that are exposed to concentration of credit risks consist primarily of cash. The Company maintains its cash in bank accounts, which may at times, exceed federally insured limits.

The Company had three major customers which generated approximately 52% (25%, 14% and 13%) of total revenue in the three months ended March 31, 2017.

The Company had five major customers which generated approximately 66% (23%, 16%, 10%, 9% and 8%) of total revenue in the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Related party transactions

FASB ASC 850, "Related Party Disclosures" requires companies to include in their financial statements disclosures of material related party transactions. The Company discloses all material related party transactions. Related parties are defined to include any principal owner, director or executive officer of the Company and any immediate family members of a principal owner, director or executive officer.

Fair value of financial instruments

The carrying amounts reflected in the balance sheets for cash, accounts payable and related party payables approximate the respective fair values due to the short maturities of these items. The Company does not hold any investments that are available-for-sale.

As required by the Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Topic of the FASB ASC, fair value is measured based on a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows: (Level 1) observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets; (Level 2) inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and (Level 3) unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.

The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:

Level 1: Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities;

Level 2: Quoted prices in markets that are not active, or inputs that are observable, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability;

Level 3: Prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable (supported by little or no market activity).

Revenue recognition

The Company recognizes revenue when all of the following conditions are satisfied: (1) there is persuasive evidence of an arrangement; (2) the service has been provided to the customer; (3) the amount of fees to be paid by the customer is fixed or determinable; and (4) the collection of its fees is reasonably assured.
    
Advertising costs

The Company expenses all costs of advertising as incurred.  There were $2,966 and $6,764 in advertising costs for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

General and administrative expenses

The significant components of general and administrative expenses consist mainly of legal and professional fees and compensation.
   
9

 
Stock-based compensation

The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, "Compensation – Stock Compensation." FASB ASC Topic 718 requires companies to measure compensation cost for stock-based employee compensation at fair value at the grant date and recognize the expense over the employee's requisite service period. The Company recognizes in the statement of operations the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity-based compensation issued to employees and non-employees. The Company accounts for equity instruments issued to non-employees in accordance with the provisions of ASC 505-50, "Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees", which requires that such equity instruments are recorded at their fair value on the measurement date, with the measurement of such compensation being subject to periodic adjustment as the underlying equity instruments vest.

Cost of Revenue

The Company's cost of revenue primarily consists of labor, fuel costs and items purchased by the Company specifically purposed for the benefit of the Company's client.

Basic and Diluted Earnings per share

Net loss per share is provided in accordance with FASB ASC 260-10, "Earnings per Share".  Basic loss per share is computed by dividing losses available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.  Diluted income (loss) per share gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period. Dilutive loss per share excludes all potential common shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

Dividends

The Company has not yet adopted any policy regarding payment of dividends.  No dividends have been paid or declared since inception.

Income Taxes

The Company follows FASB Codification Topic 740-10-25 (ASC 740-10-25) for recording the provision for income taxes.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are computed based upon the difference between the financial statement and income tax basis of assets and liabilities using the enacted marginal tax rate applicable when the related asset or liability is expected to be realized or settled.  Deferred income tax expenses or benefits are based on the changes in the asset or liability each period.  If available evidence suggests that it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized, a valuation allowance is required to reduce the deferred tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized.  Future changes in such valuation allowance are included in the provision for deferred income taxes in the period of change.

Deferred income taxes may arise from temporary differences resulting from income and expense items reported for financial accounting and tax purposes in different periods.  Deferred taxes are classified as current or non-current, depending on the classification of assets and liabilities to which they relate.  Deferred taxes arising from temporary differences that are not related to an asset or liability are classified as current or non-current depending on the periods in which the temporary differences are expected to reverse.
 
Recent Pronouncements

The Company evaluated all recent accounting pronouncements issued and determined that the adoption of these pronouncements would not have a material effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.

Note 3 – Going concern

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern.  As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has a net loss of $344,430 for the three months ended March 31, 2017, accumulated deficit of $7,316,220 and had a working capital deficit of $1,665,677 as of March 31, 2017. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.
  
In order to continue as a going concern, the Company will need, among other things, additional capital resources.  The Company is significantly dependent upon its ability, and will continue to attempt, to secure additional equity and/or debt financing.    There are no assurances that the Company will be successful and without sufficient financing it would be unlikely for the Company to continue as a going concern.
 
The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts of and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence. These financial statements do not include any adjustments that might arise from this uncertainty.

Note 10 – Options and warrants

Options

All stock options have an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the common stock on the date of grant. The fair value of each option award is estimated using a Black-Scholes-Merton option valuation model.  The Company has not paid any cash dividends on its common stock and does not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. Consequently, the Company uses an expected dividend yield of zero in the Black-Scholes-Merton option valuation model.  Volatility is an estimate based on the calculated historical volatility of similar entities in industry, in size and in financial leverage, whose share prices are publicly available. The expected life of awards granted represents the period of time that they are expected to be outstanding. The Company has no historical experience with which to establish a basis for determining an expected life of these awards. Therefore, the Company only gave consideration to the contractual terms and did not consider the vesting schedules, exercise patterns and pre-vesting and post-vesting forfeitures significant to the expected life of the option award.  The Company bases the risk-free interest rate used in the Black-Scholes-Merton option valuation model on the implied yield currently available on U.S. Treasury issues with an equivalent remaining term equal to the expected life of the award.

During the three months ended March 31, 2017 a total of 13,333 stock options were forfeited by various employees of the Company.

On May 2, 2014, we changed our name to Blue Line Protection Group, Inc.

On May 6, 2014, our directors approved a 14-for-1 forward stock split.  In connection with the stock split, our authorized capital increased to 1,400,000,000 shares of common stock.  All references to share and per share amounts in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes have been retroactively restated to reflect the forward stock split.
 
We provide armed protection and transportation, banking, compliance and training services for businesses engaged in the legal cannabis industry.  During the three months ended March 31, 2017 approximately 85% of our revenue was derived from armed protection and transportation services.  The remaining 15% of our revenue was derived from other services. 
 
It is estimated that the total market for marijuana, legal or otherwise, will exceed the economic value of corn and wheat combined.  Marijuana is widely considered the largest cash crop in the United States.  Businesses have been positioning themselves for years, each trying to establish a leadership position in the legal marijuana industry.  

Cultivation facilities are the producers of legal cannabis that eventually make its way to consumers.  Growers' operations typically span a large geographic footprint, making them susceptible to theft, as are shipments from the growers to testing laboratories or to retail dispensaries.  Additionally, due to current federal marijuana legislation and banking environment, growers are finding it increasingly difficult to secure their cash, purchase equipment and obtain financing for expansion.

Dispensaries are the retail face of the legal cannabis industry.  All legal sales of cannabis products are transacted through dispensaries that are state-licensed.  To maintain their licenses, dispensaries must comply with a variety of state-mandated reporting requirements, including reporting every gram of cannabis passing in and out of the store.  Dispensaries also face financing and banking challenges similar to those that growers encounter.

In March 2015, our wholly-owned Nevada subsidiary, BLPG, Inc., was granted licenses to provide our services in Nevada.

We do not grow, test or sell marijuana.

Armed Protection and Transportation

Fundamental to the legal cannabis industry is the protection of product and cash throughout the distribution channel.  Growers ship product from their cultivation facilities to independent laboratories where it is tested for compliance with state-mandated parameters.  From the labs, the product is then delivered to the retail dispensaries, where it is sold to the public.

Due to the current banking and regulatory environments, payments between each step in the distribution network are made in cash: from the customer back to the grower.  Therefore, these businesses are forced into having to transport bags of money between growers and dispensaries and their own vaults or storage facilities.

The risk of theft of cash and product is present at every stage, even when they are not in transit.  Accordingly, all cannabis businesses require security measures to prevent theft, mitigate risk to employees and maintain regulatory compliance.

We began our security and protection operations in Colorado in February 2014.  Since then, we have become the largest legal cannabis protection services company in the state.  We offer a fully integrated approach to managing the movement of cannabis and cash from growers through dispensaries via armed and armored transport, money processing, vaulting and related credit.  Money processing services generally include counting, sorting and wrapping currency.

We currently supply guards, protection and armed and armored transportation to approximately 60% of all the licensees in Colorado. We are focused on encompassing all compliance needs on behalf of our clients, as mandated by the State and Federal authorities for the protection, transport and sale of cannabis.

We also offer security monitoring, asset vaulting, and VIP and dignitary protection.

As of March 31, 2017 we did not have any material capital commitments other than loan payments.

Other than as disclosed above, we do not anticipate any material   capital requirements for the twelve months ending March 31, 2018.

Other than as disclosed above, we do not know of any:

trends, demands, commitments, events or uncertainties that will result in, or that are reasonable likely to result in, our liquidity increasing or decreasing in any material way; or
any significant changes in our expected sources and uses of cash.

We do not have any commitments or arrangements from any person to provide us with any equity capital.

During the next twelve months, we anticipate that we will incur approximately $1,900,000 of general and administrative expenses in order to execute our current business plan. We also plan to incur significant sales, marketing, research and development expenses during the next 12 months. We must obtain additional financing to continue our operations. We may not be able to obtain additional funding on terms that are favorable to us or at all. We may not be able to obtain sufficient funding to continue our operations, or if we do receive funding, to generate adequate revenues in the future or to operate profitably in the future. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
We have not entered into any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Critical Accounting Policies

Management considers the following policies critical because they are both important to the portrayal of our financial condition and operating results, and they require management to make judgments and estimates about inherently uncertain matters.

Accounts receivable.   Accounts receivable are stated at the amount we expect to collect from outstanding balances and do not bear interest.  We provide for probable uncollectible amounts through an allowance for doubtful accounts, if an allowance is deemed necessary.  The allowance for doubtful accounts is our best estimate of the amount of probable credit losses in our existing accounts receivable; however, changes in circumstances relating to accounts receivable may result in a requirement for additional allowances in the future.  On a periodic basis, management evaluates our accounts receivable and determines the requirement for an allowance for doubtful accounts based on its assessment of the current and collectible status of individual accounts with past due balances over 90 days.  Account balances are charged against the allowance after all collection efforts have been exhausted and the potential for recovery is considered remote.

Revenue recognition . As all of our Revenue is generated from services offerings. Revenue recognition is the same for each of our revenue streams.  We recognize revenue when all of the following conditions are satisfied: (1) there is persuasive evidence of an arrangement; (2) the service has been provided to the customer; (3) the amount of fees to be paid by the customer is fixed or determinable; and (4) the collection of its fees is reasonably assured.

Stock-based compensation.   We record stock based compensation in accordance with the guidance in ASC Topic 505 and 718, which requires us to recognize expenses related to the fair value of our employee stock option awards.  This eliminates accounting for share-based compensation transactions using the intrinsic value and requires instead that such transactions be accounted for using a fair-value-based method.  We recognize the cost of all share-based awards on a graded vesting basis over the vesting period of the award. 
 
We account for equity instruments issued in exchange for the receipt of goods or services from non-employees in accordance with FASB ASC 718-10 and the conclusions reached by the FASB ASC 505-50.  Costs are measured at the estimated fair market value of the consideration received or the estimated fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measureable.  The value of equity instruments issued for consideration other than employee services is determined on the earliest of a performance commitment or completion of performance by the provider of goods or services as defined by FASB ASC 505-50.

ITEM 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

An evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Principal Financial Officer and Principal Executive Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report on Form 10-Q. Disclosure controls and procedures are procedures designed with the objective of ensuring that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, such as this Form 10-Q, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time period specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and is communicated to our management, including our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on that evaluation, our management concluded that, as of March 31, 2017, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to the material weaknesses identified at the audit.

Change in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

Our internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives.
 
There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter covered by this report that materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
