TROIKA MEDIA GROUP, INC.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the Three Months Ended September 30, 2021 and 2020

  

NOTE 1 – PRESENTATION OF THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS        

 

The terms “Troika,” “the Company,” “we,” “our” and “us” each refer to Troika Media Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries, unless the context indicates otherwise. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements were prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or U.S. GAAP or GAAP, for interim financial information and Article 8 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures have been condensed or omitted.

 

In our opinion, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, considered necessary for a fair presentation, in all material respects, of the information contained herein. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2021.

 

Risks & Uncertainties

 

Liquidity

 

The Company has incurred net losses since its inception and anticipates net losses and negative operating cash flows until fiscal year 2024.  For the three months ending September 30, 2021, the Company had a net loss of $2.1 million, which increased the accumulated deficit to $189.0 million at September 30, 2021 from $186.9 million at June 30, 2021.  At September 30, 2021, the Company had approximately $9.8 million in cash and cash equivalents and a total of $12.4 million in current assets in relation to $17.7 million in current liabilities.  While the Company continues to find efficiencies with its acquisitions of Troika Design Group, Inc. and  Mission Group as well as the assets of Redeeem LLC, the departure of Mission’s President and Founder in fiscal year 2019 together with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic impacted revenue more than anticipated.

 

With the acquisition of Mission Group, the Company is attempting to increase Troika’s footprint in major media markets, such as NY and London.  The Company also continues to expand its consulting services and breadth of product offering with existing Mission and Troika clients and increase business development in NY and London as a result of the Mission acquisition.  Additionally, the Company intends to add to Mission business development due to Troika’s existing clientele.  As a result of these developments and the Company’s intent to save costs in overhead through rationalized headcount from synergies achieved in the acquisition of Mission, the consolidated fiscal year 2024 forecast for the combined entity is $1.7 million in adjusted EBITDA.

 

If the Company raises additional funds by issuing equity securities, its stockholders would experience dilution. Additional debt financing, if available, may involve covenants restricting its operations or its ability to incur additional debt. Any additional debt financing or additional equity that the Company raises may contain terms that are not favorable to it or its stockholders and require significant debt service payments, which diverts resources from other activities. The Company’s ability to raise additional capital will also be impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19, as well as market conditions and the price of the Company’s common stock.

 

Based on the recent acquisitions, Company-wide consolidation, and management’s plans, the Company believes that the current cash on hand of $9,752,000and anticipated cash from operations is sufficient to conduct planned operations for one year from the issuance of the consolidated financial statements.  In addition, Management believes they can raise additional capital, if necessary, given the Company has been successful at raising funding through both equity and debt financing.

Impact of COVID-19 

 

In March 2020, the World Health Organization categorized the coronavirus (COVID-19) as a pandemic, and it continues to spread throughout the United States and the rest of the world with different geographical locations impacted more than others. The outbreak of COVID-19 and the resulting public and private sector measures to reduce its transmission, such as the imposition of social distancing and orders to work-from-home, stay-at-home and shelter-in-place, have adversely impacted our business and those of our clients. Businesses have adjusted, reduced, or suspended operating activities, which has negatively impacted the clients we service. We continue to believe our focus on our strategic strengths, including talent, our differentiated market strategy and the relevance of our services, including the longevity of our relationships, will continue to assist our Company as we navigate a rapidly changing marketplace. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have negatively impacted our results of operations, cash flows and financial position; however, the continued extent of the impact will vary depending on the duration and severity of the economic and operational impacts of COVID-19.

 

We took steps to protect the safety of our employees, with a large majority of our worldwide workforce working from home, while developing creative ideas to protect the health and well-being of our communities and setting up our people to help them do their best work for our clients while working remotely. With respect to managing costs, we have implemented multiple initiatives to align our expenses with changes in revenue. The steps taken across our agencies and corporate group include deferred merit increases, freezes on hiring and temporary labor, major cuts in non-essential spending, staff reductions, furloughs in markets where that option is available and salary reductions, including voluntary salary deferment for our senior corporate management team. In addition, we remain committed to and have intensified our efforts around cash flow discipline, including the identification of significant capital expenditures that can be deferred, and working capital management. We began to see the effects of COVID-19 on client spending, notably in the UK and US markets with our Mission subsidiaries throughout the second quarter of calendar 2020 with much of the work force of the UK subsidiary on furlough, and with our Troika Design subsidiary furloughed as March 2020 progressed. Due to mandatory stay at home orders and social distancing, our experiential business has been particularly impacted by COVID-19. Promotional and experiential events with the Company’s assistance are particularly susceptible to external factors and were delayed by many of the Company’s Mission clients due to the effects of COVID-19. The Company had temporarily furloughed employees to reflect current reduced demands associated with those client sets. However, as of the first and second quarters of calendar 2021, we started to see business dramatically improve and expect greater improvement in our results in our next fiscal quarters. As cities have commenced openings with the improvement of vaccines distribution and infection rates declining, our client activities have doubled and there is a real optimism that the economic conditions are improving. Sports, Entertainment, Pharma clients are contracting our services across all entities at rates similar to 2019. 

 

In the current environment, a major priority for us is preserving liquidity. Our primary liquidity sources are operating cash flow, cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments. Although we expect to experience a decrease in our cash flow from operations as a result of the impact of COVID-19, we have obtained relief under the CARES Act in the form of a Small Business Administration backed loans. In aggregate we received $1.7 million in SBA stimulus “Payroll Protection Program” funding in April 2020 of which the majority of these funds were used for payroll. As per the US Government rules, the funds used for payroll, healthcare benefits, and other applicable operating expenses can be forgiven and the Company reported them as such in December 2020 considering the Company believes we have substantially met these conditions.  On August 14, 2020, the Company received an additional $500,000 in loans with 30 year terms under the SBA’s “Economic Injury Disaster Loan” program which the Company intends to use to address any cash shortfalls that resulted from the current pandemic.  In February 2021, the Company obtained additional relief under the CARES Act in the form of Small Business Administration backed loans and received an additional $1.7 million in SBA stimulus “Payroll Protection Program” funds which were used for payroll, healthcare benefits, and other applicable operating expenses.  In July 2021, the Company was notified that all of the stimulus funds were forgiven with the exception of approximately $8,000 which was returned in the three months ending September 30, 2021.

 

In the United Kingdom, as of April 1, 2020, Mission furloughed twenty-seven employees, saving £78,000 in April payroll, being made up of £55,000 of furlough monies from the government and £16,000 in associated payroll savings and applied for a 3-month rent holiday. In May 1, 2020, Mission put on furlough an additional 5 employees bringing the total to 32, alongside a 10% pay cut for all employees not furloughed, saving £111,000 in May payroll, being made up of £62,000 of furlough monies from the government, £33,000 of associated payroll savings and £16,000 in savings related to the pay cut. On April 1, 2020, Troika Design Group actioned a 15% salary reduction across the majority of the Los Angeles staff and furloughed one office manager for a total savings of $112,000 per month. Finally, certain members of the Company’s executive team deferred compensation temporarily. In August 2020, the Company received £50,000 in loans related to the COVID pandemic with an interest rate of 2.5% to be paid over five years beginning one year after receipt. The Company used these proceeds to address any cash shortfalls that resulted from the pandemic.

 

The extent to which the COVID-19 outbreak continues to impact the Company’s results will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information that may emerge concerning the severity of the virus and the actions to contain its impact.

PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of TMG, and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Troika Design Group, Inc. (California), Troika Services Inc. (New York), Troika Analytics Inc. (New York), Troika Productions, LLC (California), Troika-Mission Holdings, Inc. (New York), Mission Culture LLC (Delaware), Mission-Media Holdings Limited (England and Wales), Mission Media USA, Inc. (New York), and Troika  IO, Inc. (f/k/a Redeeem Acquisition Corp) (California). All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

RECLASSIFICATION OF PRIOR YEAR FINANCIALS

 

In the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company reported amortization of right-of-use assets of $320,000 in its Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows separately in net cash used in operating activities.  For purposes of consistency, this balance was reclassified to operating lease liability within the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows resulting in a balance of $171,000 from $(149,000).  The reclassification did not change the net cash used in operating activities as it remains at $(1,182,000).

 

USE OF ESTIMATES

  

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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 periods.

 

Significant estimates and assumptions made by management include, among others, the assessment of the collectability of accounts receivable and the determination of the allowance for doubtful accounts, the valuation and useful life of capitalized equipment costs and long-lived assets, valuation of warrants and options, the determination of the useful lives and any potential impairment of long-lived assets such as intangible assets and goodwill, the allocation of purchase consideration to assets and liabilities due to the Redeeem acquisition, stock-based compensation, and deferred tax assets.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT

 

Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants as of the measurement date. Applicable accounting guidance provides an established hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs are inputs that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability and are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the Company’s assumptions about the factors that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability. There are three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1 - Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

Level 2 - Other inputs that are directly or indirectly observable in the marketplace.

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs which are supported by little or no market activity.

 

 Fair-value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of September 30, 2021 and June 30, 2021.  The respective carrying value of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments approximated their fair values. These financial instruments include cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, and convertible notes payable. Fair values for these items were assumed to approximate carrying values because of their short term nature or they are payable on demand. The Company uses Level 3 inputs for its valuation methodology for the embedded conversion option liabilities as the fair values were determined by using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model based on various assumptions. The Company’s derivative liabilities are adjusted to reflect fair value at each period end, with any increase or decrease in the fair value being recorded in results of operations as adjustments to fair value of derivatives.

IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS

 

The Company evaluates, on a periodic basis, long-lived assets to be held and used for impairment in accordance with the reporting requirements of ASC 360-10. The evaluation is based on certain impairment indicators, such as the nature of the assets, the future economic benefit of the assets, any historical or future profitability measurements, as well as other external market conditions or factors that may be present. If these impairment indicators are present or other factors exist that indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable, then an estimate of the undiscounted value of expected future operating cash flows is used to determine whether the asset is recoverable and the amount of any impairment is measured as the difference between the carrying amount of the asset and its estimated fair value. The fair value is estimated using valuation techniques such as market prices for similar assets or discounted future operating cash flows. 

 

CONCENTRATION OF CREDIT RISK

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents and accounts receivable. The Company maintains cash and cash equivalent account balances with financial institutions in the United States and United Kingdom which at times exceed federally insured limits for accounts in the United States. Considering deposits with these institutions can be redeemed on demand, the Company believes there is minimal risk. As of September 30, 2021 and  June 30, 2021, the Company had $8,357,000 and $10,125,000 in cash that was uninsured, respectively.

 

CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents.  As of September 30, 2021 and June 30, 2021, the Company had no cash equivalents.

 

ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE

 

Our accounts receivable are amounts due from our clients. The Company accounts for unbilled accounts receivable using the percentage-of-completion accounting method for revenue recognized and the customer has not been invoiced due to the terms of the contract or the timing of the account invoicing cycle.

 

For those clients to whom we extend credit, we perform periodic evaluations of accounts receivable and maintain allowances for potential credit losses as deemed necessary.

 

The Company periodically reviews the outstanding accounts receivable to determine whether an allowance is necessary based on an analysis of past due accounts and other factors that may indicate that the realization of an account may be in doubt. When a customer’s account is deemed to be uncollectible the outstanding balance is charged to the allowance for doubtful accounts. As of September 30, 2021 and June 30, 2021, the Company had $452,000 and $521,000 in allowance for doubtful accounts, respectively.

 

PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT, NET

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Property and equipment consist of furniture and computer equipment. Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets, generally ranging from three to seven years. Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.  Expenditures that increase the value or productive capacity of assets are capitalized.  When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and accumulated depreciation or amortization are removed from the accounts and any resulting gain or loss is reflected in the statements of income in the period realized.

GOODWILL AND INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

As a result of acquisitions, the Company recorded goodwill and identifiable intangible assets as part of its allocation of the purchase consideration.

 

Goodwill 

Goodwill is the excess of the purchase price paid over the fair value of the net assets of the acquired business. Goodwill is tested annually at June 30 for impairment. The annual qualitative or quantitative assessments involve determining an estimate of the fair value of reporting units in order to evaluate whether an impairment of the current carrying amount of goodwill exists. A qualitative assessment evaluates whether it is more likely than not that a reporting unit’s fair value is less than its carrying amount before applying the two-step quantitative goodwill impairment test. The first step of a quantitative goodwill impairment test compares the fair value of the reporting unit to its carrying amount including goodwill. If the carrying amount of the reporting unit exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss may be recognized. The amount of impairment loss is determined by comparing the implied fair value of the reporting unit’s goodwill with the carrying amount. If the carrying amount exceeds the implied fair value then an impairment loss is recognized equal to that excess.  There was no goodwill impairment recorded as a result of the Company’s annual impairment assessment on June 30, 2021. The Company has adopted the provisions of ASU 2017-04—Intangibles—Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. ASU 2017-04 requires goodwill impairments to be measured on the basis of the fair value of a reporting unit relative to the reporting unit’s carrying amount rather than on the basis of the implied amount of goodwill relative to the goodwill balance of the reporting unit. Thus, ASU 2017-04 permits an entity to record a goodwill impairment that is entirely or partly due to a decline in the fair value of other assets that, under existing GAAP, would not be impaired or have a reduced carrying amount. Furthermore, the ASU removes “the requirements for any reporting unit with a zero or negative carrying amount to perform a qualitative assessment and, if it fails that qualitative test, to perform Step 2 of the goodwill impairment test.” Instead, all reporting units, even those with a zero or negative carrying amount will apply the same impairment test. Accordingly, the goodwill of reporting unit or entity with zero or negative carrying values will not be impaired, even when conditions underlying the reporting unit/entity may indicate that goodwill is impaired.

 

We test our goodwill for impairment annually, or, under certain circumstances, more frequently, such as when events or circumstances indicate there may be impairment. We are required to write down the value of goodwill only when our testing determines the recorded amount of goodwill exceeds the fair value. Our annual measurement date for testing goodwill impairment is June 30. 

 

None of the goodwill is deductible for income tax purposes.

 

Intangibles

 

Intangible assets with finite useful lives consist of tradenames, non-compete agreements, acquired workforce and customer relationships and are amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives, which range from three to ten years. The estimated useful lives associated with finite-lived intangible assets are consistent with the estimated lives of the associated products and may be modified when circumstances warrant. Such assets are reviewed for impairment when events or circumstances indicate that the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable. An impairment loss would be recognized when estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to result from the use of an asset and its eventual disposition are less than its carrying amount. The amount of any impairment is measured as the difference between the carrying amount and the fair value of the impaired asset. There was no impairment recorded for intangibles in the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.

 

LEASES

 

Right-of-use assets and lease liabilities are recorded in accordance with Leases (Topic 842).  The Company has recorded a lease liability because the Company has the obligation to make lease payments and a ROU asset for the right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. The lease liability is measured at the present value of the lease payments over the lease term. The right-of-use asset is measured at the lease liability amount, adjusted for lease prepayments, lease incentives received and the lessee’s initial direct costs. The Company uses the optional transitional method and elected to use the package of three practical expedients which allows the Company not to reassess whether contracts are or contain leases, lease classification and whether initial direct costs qualify for capitalization.

 

Income from subleased properties as well as non-lease items such as common-area maintenance and utilities are recognized as non-operating “other income” on the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Loss.

REVENUE RECOGNITION

 

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”), Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”). Revenues are recognized when control is transferred to customers in amounts that reflect the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for those goods. Revenue recognition is evaluated through the following five steps: (i) identification of the contract, or contracts, with a customer; (ii) identification of the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) determination of the transaction price; (iv) allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and (v) recognition of revenue when or as a performance obligation is satisfied.

 

The Company recognizes primarily four revenue streams and they are retainer fees, project fees, reimbursement income, and fee income.

 

Retainer fees are non-refundable fixed amounts being received from a client often on a recurring basis and the performance obligation is the staff being available to provide consultation services.  Consulting engagements do not incur a significant amount of direct costs however any costs are recognized as incurred.   Consulting fees are recognized evenly throughout the term of the agreement.

 

Project fees are associated with the delivery of services and/or goods to a client and the revenue includes both the anticipated costs to deliver the product as well as the Company’s margin.  As per ASC 606-10-25-31, the Company recognizes project fees over time by measuring the progress toward complete satisfaction of a performance obligation by measuring its performance in transferring control of the services contractually delivered to a client by applying the input method.   Revenue is recognized based on the extent of inputs expended toward satisfying a performance obligation and it was determined that the best judge of inputs is the costs consumed by a project in relation to its total anticipated costs.  As part of the close process the Company compiles a preliminary percentage of completion (POC) for each project which is the ratio of incurred costs to date in relation to the anticipated costs from the production team’s approved budgets.  The POC ratio is then applied to the contracted revenue and the pro-rated revenue is then recognized accordingly.

 

Reimbursement income represents compensation relating to the out-of-pocket costs associated with a staging of a live event.  As per 606-10-25-31, the Company recognizes reimbursement income over time by measuring the progress toward complete satisfaction of a performance obligation by measuring its performance in transferring control of the services contractually delivered to a client by applying the input method.   The revenue is recognized based on the extent of inputs expended toward satisfying a performance obligation and it was determined that the best judge of input is the costs incurred to date in relation to the anticipated costs.  As a result, unless an overage or saving is identified, the reimbursement income equates to the reimbursement costs incurred.   Given that the Company contracts directly with the majority of the vendors and is liable for any overages, the Company is deemed a principal in this revenue transaction as they have control over the asset and transfer the asset themselves.  As a result, this transaction is recorded gross rather than net.  

 

Fee income represents the Company’s margin on the staging of a live event, is negotiated with the client prior and fixed.  Based on ASC 606, the Company’s progress in satisfying the performance obligation in a contract is difficult to determine so as a result the fee income is only recognized at the conclusion of a project.  Only upon confirmation the Company has performed all its contractual obligations as per the contract does the Company record fee income.

 

Contract Assets

 

The Company does not have any contract assets such as work-in-process. All trade receivables on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet are from contracts with customers.

 

Contract Costs

 

Costs incurred to obtain a contract are capitalized unless short term in nature. As a practical expedient, costs to obtain a contract that are short term in nature are expensed as incurred. The Company does not have any contract costs capitalized as of September 30, 2021 and June 30, 2021.

 

Contract Liabilities - Deferred Revenue

 

The Company’s contract liabilities consist of advance customer payments and deferred revenue. Deferred revenue results from transactions in which the Company has been paid for products by customers, but for which all revenue recognition criteria have not yet been met. Once all revenue recognition criteria have been met, the deferred revenues are recognized.

ADVERTISING

 

The Company generally expenses marketing and advertising costs as incurred. During the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company incurred $18,000 and $0, respectively, on marketing, trade shows and advertising.

 

The Company received rebates on advertising from co-operative advertising agreements with several vendors and suppliers. These rebates have been recorded as a reduction to the related advertising and marketing expense.

 

BENEFICIAL CONVERSION FEATURE

 

The Company accounts for convertible notes payable in accordance with the guidelines established by the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 470-20, Debt with Conversion and Other Options, Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) 98-5, Accounting for Convertible Securities with Beneficial Conversion Features or Contingently Adjustable Conversion Ratios, and EITF 00-27, Application of Issue No 98-5 To Certain Convertible Instruments. The Beneficial Conversion Feature (“BCF”) of a convertible note is normally characterized as the convertible portion or feature of certain notes payable that provide a rate of conversion that is below market value or in-the-money when issued. The Company records a BCF related to the issuance of a convertible note when issued and also records the estimated fair value of any warrants issued with those convertible notes. Beneficial conversion features that are contingent upon the occurrence of a future event are recorded when the contingency is resolved.

 

 The BCF of a convertible note is measured by allocating a portion of the note’s proceeds to the warrants, if applicable, and as a reduction of the carrying amount of the convertible note equal to the intrinsic value of the conversion feature, both of which are credited to additional paid-in-capital. The value of the proceeds received from a convertible note is then allocated between the conversion features and warrants on an allocated fair value basis. The allocated fair value is recorded in the financial statements as a debt discount (premium) from the face amount of the note and such discount is amortized over the expected term of the convertible note (or to the conversion date of the note, if sooner) and is charged to interest expense using interest method.

 

DERIVATIVE LIABILITY

 

The Company analyzes all financial instruments with features of both liabilities and equity under ASC 480, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity” and ASC 815, “Derivatives and Hedging”. Derivative liabilities are adjusted to reflect their fair value at each period end with any increase or decrease in the fair value being recorded in results of operations.   The fair value of derivative instruments such as convertible note payables are valued using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model based on various assumptions.

 

STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

 

The Company recognizes stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC Topic 718 “Stock Compensation”, which requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all share-based payment awards made to employees and directors including employee stock options and employee stock purchases related to an Employee Stock Purchase Plan based on the estimated fair values.

 

For non-employee stock-based compensation, the Company has adopted ASC 2018-07, Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting which expands on the scope of ASC 718 to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring services from non-employees and requires stock-based compensation related to non-employees to be accounted for based on the fair value of the related stock or the fair value of the services at the grant date, whichever is more readily determinable in accordance with ASC Topic 718.

FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSLATION

 

The consolidated financial statements of the Company are presented in U.S. dollars. The functional currency for the Company is U.S. dollars for all entities other than Mission Media Limited whose operations are based in the United Kingdom and their functional currency is British Pound Sterling (GBP). Transactions in currencies other than the functional currencies are recorded using the appropriate exchange rate at the time of the transaction. All assets and liabilities are translated into U.S. Dollars at balance sheet date, shareholders’ equity is translated at historical rates and revenue and expense accounts are translated at the average exchange rate for the year or the reporting period. The translation adjustments are reported as a separate component of stockholders’ equity, captioned as accumulated other comprehensive (loss) income. Transaction gains and losses arising from exchange rate fluctuations on transactions denominated in a currency other than the functional currency are included in the statements of operations.

 

The relevant translation rates are as follows: for the three months ended September 30, 2021 closing rate at 1.34260 US$: GBP, average rate at 1.37167 US$: GBP, for the three months ended September 30, 2020 closing rate at 1.29180 US$: GBP, average rate at 1.31230 US$: GBP.

 

INCOME TAXES

 

The Company accounts for its income taxes in accordance with Income Taxes Topic of the FASB ASC 740, which requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and tax credit carry forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in operations in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

Income tax expense is based on reported earnings before income taxes. Deferred income taxes reflect the impact of temporary differences between assets and liabilities recognized for consolidated financial reporting purposes and such amounts recognized for tax purposes and are measured by applying enacted tax rates in effect in years in which the differences are expected to reverse.

 

The Company also follows the guidance related to accounting for income tax uncertainties. In accounting for uncertainty in income taxes, the Company recognizes the financial statement benefit of a tax position only after determining that the relevant tax authority would more likely than not sustain the position following an audit. For tax positions meeting the more likely than not threshold, the amount recognized in the financial statements is the largest benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the relevant tax authority.

 

The Company has net operating losses for both their US and UK entities however a full valuation allowance was recorded due to uncertainties in realizing the deferred tax asset.

 

COMPREHENSIVE LOSS

 

Comprehensive loss is defined as a change in equity of a business enterprise during a period from transactions and other events and circumstances from non-owner sources and includes all changes in equity during a period except those resulting from investments by owners and distributions to owners.  For the Company, comprehensive loss for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 included net loss and unrealized gains (losses) from foreign currency translation adjustments.

EARNINGS PER COMMON SHARE

 

Net income (loss) per common share is calculated in accordance with ASC Topic: 260 Earnings per Share.  Basic income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.  The computation of diluted net loss per share does not include dilutive common stock equivalents in the weighted average shares outstanding as they would be anti-dilutive.  In periods where the Company has a net loss, all dilutive securities are excluded.

 

The following are dilutive common stock equivalents as of September 30, 2021 and 2020, which were not included in the calculation of loss per share, since the Company had a net loss from continuing operations and net loss:

STIMULUS FUNDING

 

In accordance with IAS-20, Accounting for Government Grants and Disclosure of Government Assistance, the proceeds from government grants are to be recognized as a deferred income liability and reported as income as the related costs are expensed.   On September 30, 2021, the Company recorded deferred income liabilities of $0 within contract liabilities and $440,000 within stimulus loans, respectively.  On June 30, 2021, the Company recorded deferred income liabilities of $270,000 within contract liabilities and $569,000 within stimulus loans, respectively.  For the three months ending September 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company recognized $262,000 and $0 in income from government grants, respectively.  In the three months ending September 30, 2021, $8,000 of the stimulus funding was not forgiven and returned to the bank.

 

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Effective

 

In August 2020, FASB issued ASU 2020-06, “Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity: Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity” which simplifies the accounting for convertible instruments by removing the separation models for convertible debt with a cash conversion feature and convertible instruments with a beneficial conversion feature. As a result, a convertible debt instrument will be accounted for as a single liability measured at its amortized cost. These changes will reduce reported interest expense and increase reported net income for entities that have issued a convertible instrument that was bifurcated according to previously existing rules. Also, ASU 2020-06 requires the application of the if-converted method for calculating diluted earnings per share and the treasury stock method will be no longer available. The new guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, with early adoption permitted no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of ASU 2020-06 however it is not believed that it will have a material impact to the financials.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued amended guidance in the form of ASU No. 2019-12, “Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes.” This ASU is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and clarifying certain aspects of the current guidance to promote consistency among reporting entities. ASU 2019-12 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2020 and interim periods within those annual periods, with early adoption permitted. An entity that elects early adoption must adopt all the amendments in the same period. Most amendments within this ASU are required to be applied on a prospective basis, while certain amendments must be applied on a retrospective or modified retrospective basis. The Company is in the initial stage of evaluating the impact of this new standard however it does not believe the guidance will have a material impact on its financial statements.

Purchased intangible assets with finite useful lives are amortized over their respective estimated useful lives (using an accelerated method for customer relationships and trade names) to their estimated residual values, if any. The Company’s finite-lived intangible assets consist of customer relationships, contractor and resume databases, trade names, and internal use software and are being amortized over periods ranging from two to nine years. Purchased intangible assets are reviewed annually to determine if facts and circumstances indicate that the useful life is shorter than originally estimated or that the carrying amount of assets may not be recoverable. If such facts and circumstances exist, recoverability is assessed by comparing the projected undiscounted net cash flows associated with the related asset or group of assets over their remaining lives against their respective carrying amounts. Impairments, if any, are based on the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value of those assets. If the useful life is shorter than originally estimated, the rate of amortization is accelerated and the remaining carrying value is amortized over the new shorter useful life.   For the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Company had no impairments.  During the fiscal year ending June 30, 2021, the Company recorded $0 in impairment expense related to intangibles.

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, amortization expense was $172,000 and $540,000, respectively.

NOTE 5 – CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE

 

                In October 2020, the Company received gross proceeds of $50,000 representing a convertible note payable issued to an existing investor.   Terms include an interest rate of 10% and a maturity date the earlier of January 1, 2021 or five business days after the Company is listed on a US national securities exchange.  Upon mutual agreement, the outstanding balance can be converted to common stock at a conversion price 25% less the current market price.  In consideration for the loan, 6,667 warrants were issued at an exercise price of $2.25 per share vesting over three years.  The Company determined that the note’s conversion feature should be valued separately and bifurcated from the host instrument and accounted for as a separate derivative liability.   The fair market value of the embedded conversion feature was determined to be $1,000 and $13,000 using the Black-Scholes model as of September 30, 2021 and June 30, 2021, respectively.   The derivative liability was recorded as a short-term liability and interest expense of $1,000 was recorded for the three months ending September 30, 2021.  The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes valuation include a volatility of 64.49%, risk-free rate of 0.98% and a term of one. 

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company paid $0 towards the principal of the Promissory Notes.

 

As of September 30, 2021 and June 30, 2021, there was a total $50,000 in notes payable outstanding.  The Company recorded $1,000 in interest expense relating to convertible note payables during the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.  The Company recorded $0 and $17,000 in amortization expense relating to the note payable discount during the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

NOTE 7 – LEASE LIABILITIES

 

                The Company leases office space and as a result of our adoption of ASC 842, the operating leases are reflected on our balance sheet within operating lease right-of-use (ROU) assets and the related current and non-current operating lease liabilities. ROU assets represent the right to use an underlying asset for the lease term, and lease liabilities represent the obligation to make lease payments arising from lease agreement.  Lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term, subject to any changes in the lease or expectation regarding the terms. Variable lease costs such as common area maintenance, property taxes and insurance are expensed as incurred.

 

When the new accounting standard was adopted on July 1, 2019, the Company had current and long-term operating lease liabilities of $2,275,000 and $6,916,000, respectively, and right of use of assets of $8,348,000.  As of September 30, 2021, the Company had current and long-term operating lease liabilities of $3,115,000 and $5,785,000, respectively, and right of use of assets of $6,827,000.

In July 2021, the Company entered into a settlement agreement regarding the Stephenson legal dispute which settled all matters between the Company and the former owners of the Mission entities.  The agreement provided for the full payment of all amounts due to the Company and allowed the Stephensons to sell the shares subject to a leak-out period.  The agreement was filed with the Court and a settlement payment of approximately $905,000 which was recognized in the three months ending September 30, 2021.  In addition to this cash settlement, the Company also reversed approximately $133,000 in accruals relating to the Stephensons which was recorded as other income.

WARRANTS

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Company did not issue warrants.

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company issued warrants to certain directors and consultants to purchase 156,667 shares of the Company’s common stock between $0.75 and $3.00 per share which vested during various terms and were valued at $475,000.  The Company recorded compensation of $7,000 for the vested portion during the three months ended September 30, 2020.  The Company recorded compensation of $154,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 relating to the vested portion of warrants that were issued in previous periods.   The total compensation of the unvested warrants to be recognized in future periods is $143,000 and the weighted average remaining is 3.2 years.

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company also issued warrants to purchase 400,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at $0.75 relating to the conversion of an aforementioned convertible note which is vested over three years and valued at $1,200,000. 

 

As of September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, the Company has outstanding warrant shares of 8,296,408 with an intrinsic value of $12,158,467 and 8,341,333 warrant shares with an intrinsic value of $11,023,795.

 

In February 2021, the Company decided to extend all warrants issued in association with its previous Series B Preferred Stock one year beyond their original expiration date. The Company considered recording the increase in the fair value associated with these new terms in the three months ending September 30, 2021 but determined that the change was not material and an adjustment was not necessary.

 

The Company uses the Black-Scholes Model to determine the fair value of warrants granted. Option-pricing models require the input of highly subjective assumptions, particularly for the expected stock price volatility and the expected term of options. Changes in the subjective input assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimate. The expected stock price volatility assumptions are based on the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock over periods that are similar to the expected terms of grants and other relevant factors. The Company derives the expected term based on an average of the contract term and the vesting period taking into consideration the vesting schedules and future employee behavior with regard to option exercise. The risk-free interest rate is based on U.S. Treasury yields for a maturity approximating the expected term calculated at the date of grant. The Company has never paid any cash dividends on its common stock and the Company has no intention to pay a dividend at this time; therefore, the Company assumes that no dividends will be paid over the expected terms of warrants awards.

 

The Company determines the assumptions used in the valuation of warrants awards as of the date of grant. Differences in the expected stock price volatility, expected term or risk-free interest rate may necessitate distinct valuation assumptions at those grant dates. As such, the Company may use different assumptions for warrants granted throughout the year.

2017 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN 

 

On June 13, 2017, the Board adopted and approved an amendment to the Troika Media Group, Inc. 2015 Employee, Director and Consultant Equity Incentive Plan (the “Equity Plan”), to change the name from M2 nGage Group, Inc. to Troika Media Group, Inc., in order to attract, motivate, retain, and reward high-quality executives and other employees, officers, directors, consultants, and other persons who provide services to the Company by enabling such persons to acquire an equity interest in the Company. Under the Plan, the Board (or the compensation committee of the Board, if one is established) may award stock options, either stock grant of shares of the Company’s common stock, incentive stock option under IRS section 422 (“ISO’s”) or a non-qualified stock option (“Non-ISO’s”) (collectively “Options”). The Plan allocates 3,333,334 shares of the Company’s common stock (“Plan Shares”) for issuance of equity awards under the Plan. As of September 30, 2021, the Company has granted, under the Plan, awards in the form of NQSO’s

 

ISO’s Awards

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Company issued options to certain employees to purchase 385,167 shares of the Company’s common stock between $2.61 and $2.84 per share which vested during various terms and were valued at $503,000.  In regards to the options issued in the three months ending September 30, 2021, the Company recorded compensation of $0 for the vested portion of these options.  The Company recorded compensation of $107,000 relating to the vested portion of options that were issued in previous periods for the three months ended September 30, 2021.  The total compensation of the unvested options to be recognized in future periods is $1,672,000 and the weighted average remaining is 2.7 years.

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company issued options to certain employees to purchase 76,667 shares of the Company’s common stock at $3.75 per share which vested during various terms and were valued at $123,000.  In regards to the options issued in the three months ending September 30, 2020, the Company recorded compensation of $0 for the vested portion of these options.  The Company recorded compensation of $166,000 relating to the vested portion of options that were issued in previous periods for the three months ended September 30, 2020.  The total compensation of the unvested options to be recognized in future periods is $719,000 and the weighted average remaining is 1.7 years.

 

The Company uses the Black-Scholes Model to determine the fair value of Options granted. Option-pricing models require the input of highly subjective assumptions, particularly for the expected stock price volatility and the expected term of options. Changes in the subjective input assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimate. The expected stock price volatility assumptions are based on the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock over periods that are similar to the expected terms of grants and other relevant factors.

The risk-free interest rate is based on U.S. Treasury yields for a maturity approximating the expected term calculated at the date of grant. The Company has never paid any cash dividends on its common stock and the Company has no intention to pay a dividend at this time; therefore, the Company assumes that no dividends will be paid over the expected terms of option awards.

 

The Company determines the assumptions used in the valuation of Option awards as of the date of grant. Differences in the expected stock price volatility, expected term or risk-free interest rate may necessitate distinct valuation assumptions at those grant dates. As such, the Company may use different assumptions for options granted throughout the year.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

The following management’s discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the Company’s historical consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto included in our audited financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2021, and the notes thereto. The management’s discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, such as statements of our plans, objectives, expectations and intentions. Any statements that are not statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. When used, the words “believe,” “plan,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “target,” “estimate,” “expect” and the like, and/or future tense or conditional constructions (“will,” “may,” “could,” “should,” etc.), or similar expressions, identify certain of these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements in this quarterly report. The Company’s actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of several factors. The Company does not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this quarterly report.

 

Critical Accounting Policy & Estimates

 

Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section discusses our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements 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 amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.

 

On an ongoing basis, management evaluates its estimates and judgments, including those related to revenue recognition, accrued expenses, financing operations, and contingencies and litigation. Management bases its estimates and judgments on historical experience and on various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.

 

Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions and conditions. The most significant accounting estimates inherent in the preparation of our financial statements include estimates as to the appropriate carrying value of certain assets and liabilities which are not readily apparent from other sources. These accounting policies are described at relevant sections in this discussion and analysis and in the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this quarterly report.

 

OVERVIEW

 

Troika Media Group, Inc. was incorporated in Nevada in 2003.  In October 2016, our secured lenders took control of the Company’s then operating subsidiaries which ceased operations and are included in discontinued operations. The Company is a transatlantic agency focusing on branding, digital marketing and performance media services, using actionable intelligence across all broadcast digital media and live experiences. On June 12, 2017, we commenced our current operations upon the merger with Troika Design Group, Inc., a strategic brand consultancy with deep expertise in entertainment media, sports, consumer goods and service brands. On June 29, 2018, we acquired all of the equity interests of Mission Culture LLC and Mission Media Holdings Limited, a company headquartered in London, with North American operations since 2009, as a brand experience and communications agency that specializes in consumer immersion through a cultural lens, via live experiences, brand partnerships, public relations and social and influencer engagement.  On May 21, 2021, we acquired substantially all of the assets of Redeeem LLC (n/k/a Troika IO, Inc.), a peer-to-peer NFT blockchain exchange founded in 2018.

The Impact of the Global COVID-19 Virus

 

In March 2020, the World Health Organization categorized the coronavirus (COVID-19) as a pandemic, and it continues to spread throughout the United States and the rest of the world with different geographical locations impacted more than others. The outbreak of COVID-19 and the resulting public and private sector measures to reduce its transmission, such as the imposition of social distancing and orders to work-from-home, stay-at-home and shelter-in-place, have adversely impacted our business and those of our clients. Businesses have adjusted, reduced, or suspended operating activities, which has negatively impacted the clients we service. We continue to believe our focus on our strategic strengths, including talent, our differentiated market strategy and the relevance of our services, including the longevity of our relationships, will continue to assist our Company as we navigate a rapidly changing marketplace. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have negatively impacted our results of operations, cash flows and financial position; however, the continued extent of the impact will vary depending on the duration and severity of the economic and operational impacts of COVID-19.

 

We took steps to protect the safety of our employees, with a large majority of our worldwide workforce working from home, while developing creative ideas to protect the health and well-being of our communities and setting up our people to help them do their best work for our clients while working remotely. With respect to managing costs, we have implemented multiple initiatives to align our expenses with changes in revenue. The steps taken across our agencies and corporate group include deferred merit increases, freezes on hiring and temporary labor, major cuts in non-essential spending, staff reductions, furloughs in markets where that option is available and salary reductions, including voluntary salary deferment for our senior corporate management team. In addition, we remain committed to and have intensified our efforts around cash flow discipline, including the identification of significant capital expenditures that can be deferred, and working capital management. We began to see the effects of COVID-19 on client spending, notably in the UK and US markets with our Mission subsidiaries throughout the second quarter of calendar 2020 with much of the work force of the UK subsidiary on furlough, and with our Troika Design subsidiary furloughed as March 2020 progressed. Due to mandatory stay at home orders and social distancing, our experiential business has been particularly impacted by COVID-19. Promotional and experiential events with the Company’s assistance are particularly susceptible to external factors were delayed by many of the Company’s Mission clients due to the effects of COVID-19. The Company had temporarily furloughed employees to reflect current reduced demands associated with those client sets. However, as of the first and second quarters of calendar 2021, we started to see business dramatically improve and expect greater improvement in our results in our next fiscal quarters. As cities have commenced openings with the improvement of vaccines distribution and infection rates declining, our client activities have doubled and there is a real optimism that the economic conditions are improving. Sports, Entertainment, Pharma clients are contracting our services across all entities at rates similar to 2019. 

 

In the current environment, a major priority for us is preserving liquidity. Our primary liquidity sources are operating cash flow, cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments. Although we expect to experience a decrease in our cash flow from operations as a result of the impact of COVID-19, we have obtained relief under the CARES Act in the form of a Small Business Administration backed loans. In aggregate we received $1.7 million in SBA stimulus “Payroll Protection Program” funding in April 2020 of which the majority of these funds were used for payroll. As per the US Government rules, the funds used for payroll, healthcare benefits, and other applicable operating expenses can be forgiven and the Company reported them as such in December 2020 considering the Company believes we have substantially met these conditions.  On August 14, 2020, the Company received an additional $500,000 in loans with 30 year terms under the SBA’s “Economic Injury Disaster Loan” program which the Company intends to use to address any cash shortfalls that may result from the current pandemic.  In February 2021, the Company obtained additional relief under the CARES Act in the form of a Small Business Administration backed loans and received an additional $1.7 million in SBA stimulus “Payroll Protection Program” funds which will be used for payroll, healthcare benefits, and other applicable operating expenses.  In July 2021, the Company was notified that all of the stimulus funds were forgiven with the exception of approximately $8,000 which was returned in the three months ending September 30, 2021.

Table of Contents

 

In the United Kingdom, as of April 1, 2020, Mission furloughed twenty-seven employees, saving £78,000 in April payroll, being made up of £55,000 of furlough monies from the government and £16,000 in associated payroll savings and applied for a 3-month rent holiday. In May 1, 2020, Mission put on furlough an additional 5 employees bringing the total to 32, alongside a 10% pay cut for all employees not furloughed, saving £111,000 in May payroll, being made up of £62,000 of furlough monies from the government, £33,000 of associated payroll savings and £16,000 in savings related to the pay cut.  On April 1, 2020, Troika Design Group actioned a 15% salary reduction across the majority of the Los Angeles staff and furloughed one office manager for a total savings of $112,000 per month.  Finally, certain members of the Company’s executive team deferred compensation temporarily. In August 2020, the Company received £50,000 in loans related to the COVID pandemic with an interest rate of 2.5% to be paid over five years beginning one year after receipt. The Company used these proceeds to address any cash shortfalls that resulted from the pandemic.

 

The extent to which the COVID-19 outbreak continues to impact the Company’s results will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information that may emerge concerning the severity of the virus and the actions to contain its impact.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020.

 

Our revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 were $8,349,000 and $4,132,000, respectively, an increase of approximately $4,217,000 or 102.1%.   The driver of this increase is a resurgence of business at Troika Design and the UK subsidiary of Mission-Media Holdings which recognized increases of $2,575,000 (113.2%) and $1,440,000 (173.6%), respectively, in revenue in relation to the prior period which was significantly impacted by the COVID pandemic. 

 

The costs of revenue exclusive of operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 were $4,837,000 and $2,280,000, respectively, an increase of $2,557,000, or 112.1%. The increase is directly correlated to the aforementioned increase in revenue at Troika Design and the UK subsidiary of Mission-Media Holdings as result of these business units beginning their recovery from the COVID pandemic and the gradual return of live-events.  The gross profit margin for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 decreased from 44.8% to 42.1% due to a higher proportion of consulting fees being generated in the prior period which have a higher gross profit margin in comparison to revenue generated from project-based and live-event business.

 

The operating costs for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 were $7,005,000 and $5,809,000 respectively, an increase of $1,196,000 or 20.6%.  The primary driver of this increase was $857,000 in additional salary cost and payroll taxes primarily due to the Redeeem acquisition and the return of furloughed employees, $659,000 increase in stock-based compensation, due to the Redeeem acquisition, and a $373,000 increase in board of director fees. This was offset by a $436,000 decrease in rental expense and $268,000 reduction in legal fees.

 

As a result of the foregoing, our net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2021 decreased to $2,139,000 from $3,921,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

 

LIQUIDITY & CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

As of September 30, 2021, compared with June 30, 2021:

 

As of September 30, 2021, the Company has a working capital deficit of $(5,279,000) compared with a deficit of $(4,004,000) at June 30, 2021. The increase in working capital deficit was primarily the result of a net loss of $2,139,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021.  The increase in working capital deficit also reflects a decrease of $2,314,000 in cash and an increase of $900,000 in contract liabilities offset by a decrease of $967,000 in accounts payable and accrued expenses and an increase of $649,000 in accounts receivable.

Net cash provided by financing activities decreased by $735,000 from $715,000 to $(20,000) for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2021, respectively. The decrease was the result of a $565,000 decrease in proceeds from stimulus loan programs and a $150,000 decrease in proceeds from convertible note payables.

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company did not recognize any proceeds from the sale of its securities.

Non-GAAP Measures

 

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of Adjusted Earnings Before Interest Taxes Depreciation & Amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") to Net Income (Loss):

 

Adjusted Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("Adj. EBITDA")

 The adjusted EBITDA metric is most helpful when used in determining the value of a company for transactions such as mergers, acquisitions or raising capital.

 

The adjustments made to a company's EBITDA can vary quite a bit from one company to the next, but the goal is the same. Adjusting the EBITDA metric aims to "normalize" the figure so that it is somewhat generic, meaning it contains essentially the same line-item expenses that any other, similar company in its industry would contain.

 

We believe that our financial statements and the other financial data included, have been prepared in a manner that complies, in all material respects, with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). However, for the reasons discussed below, we have presented certain non-GAAP measures herein.

 

We have presented the following non-GAAP measures to assist investors in understanding our core net operating results on an on-going basis: (i) Adjusted EBITDA as it relates to Net Income.  These non-GAAP financial measures may also assist investors, securities analysts and others in making comparisons of our core operating results with those of other companies and making informed business decisions.

 

As used herein, net income represents net loss plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, net and income tax expense. As used herein, Adjusted EBITDA represents Net Income plus the following add backs;

 

Net Income plus unrealized gains, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, non-operating related management bonus compensation, foreign exchange losses, stock-based compensation expense and litigation expenses.

Table of Contents

 

We recognize that Adjusted EBITDA off net income, have limitations as analytical financial measures. For example, neither EBITDA nor Adjusted EBITDA reflects:

 

 

·

our capital expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or mergers and acquisitions;

 

·

the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest expense or principal payments, associated with indebtedness;

 

·

depreciation and amortization, which are non-cash charges, although the assets being depreciated and amortized will likely have to be replaced in the future, or any cash requirements for the replacement of assets;

 

·

changes in cash requirements for our working capital needs; or

 

·

changes in fair value of contingent earn-out liabilities, warrant liabilities, and amortization of inventory step-up from acquisitions (included in cost of goods sold) and transition costs from acquisitions.

 

Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA excludes non-cash expense for stock-based compensation, which is currently and is expected to remain a key element of our overall long-term incentive compensation package.

 

The bulk of the adjustments are often different types of expenses that are added back to EBITDA. The resulting adjusted EBITDA often reflects a higher earnings level because of the reduced expenses.

 

EBITDA Adjustments included below:

 

 

·

Unrealized gains or losses

 

·

Non-cash expenses (depreciation, amortization)

 

·

Litigation expenses

 

·

Non-operating related management bonuses

 

·

Gains or losses on foreign exchange

 

·

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures

 

The term “disclosure controls and procedures” is defined in Rules 13(a)-15e and 15(d) - 15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of September 30, 2021. They have concluded that, as of September 30, 2021, our disclosures, controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that:

 

 

(1)

Information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files or submits under the act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and forms; and

 

 

 

 

(2)

Controls and procedures are designed by the Company to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the issuer’s management including the principal executive and principal financial officers or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding financial disclosure.

 

This term refers to the controls and procedures of a Company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a Company in the reports that it files under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the required time periods. Management continues to take steps to improve its controls and procedures, and expects, further, that the growing scale of the business will enable the Company to obtain additional resources to assist in that effort.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting or in any other factors that could significantly affect these controls during the quarter ended September 30, 2021 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

The Company is in the process of consolidating its bank accounts into one institution, investigating a consolidated general ledger system, and formalizing policies and procedures which, upon their implementation, should dramatically improve internal controls. The Company is also considering employing additional accounting staff which will improve segregation of duties. The Company intends to implement these controls in the near future in order to prevent and detect mistakes, noncompliance and potential fraud.
