Note 1 – Organization, Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies

 

Organization

 

Digipath, Inc. was incorporated in Nevada on October 5, 2010. Digipath, Inc. and its subsidiaries (“Digipath,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) is a service-oriented independent testing laboratory, data analytics and media firm focused on the developing cannabis and hemp markets, and supports the cannabis industry’s best practices for reliable testing, cannabis education and training. Our business units are described below.

 

  Ø Digipath Labs, Inc . Digipath Labs’ mission is to provide pharmaceutical-grade analysis and testing to the cannabis industry, under ISO-17025:2017 guidelines, to ensure consumers and patients know exactly what is in the cannabis they ingest and to help maximize the quality of our clients’ products through research, development, and standardization. Digipath has been operating a cannabis-testing lab in Nevada since 2015 and has plans to open labs in other states and countries that have legalized the sale of cannabis, beginning with California.
     
  Ø The National Marijuana News Corp . provides a balanced and unbiased approach to cannabis news, interviews and education with a news/talk podcast, national marijuana news website and social media presence focusing on the political, economic, medicinal, scientific, and cultural dimensions of the rapidly evolving—and profoundly controversial—medicinal and recreational marijuana industry.
     
  Ø GroSciences, Inc . Launched during the first fiscal quarter of 2019 to capitalize on the extensive data we have collected from cannabis through the testing process. GroSciences plans to develop and license specific formulations to other producers and product makers in the industry.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company and the accompanying notes included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are unaudited. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been included. Such adjustments are of a normal, recurring nature. The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, and the accompanying notes, are prepared in accordance with GAAP and do not contain certain information included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018. The interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with that Annual Report on Form 10-K. Results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that might be expected for the entire fiscal year.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the following entities, all of which were under common control and ownership at March 31, 2019:

 

    Jurisdiction of    
Name of Entity (1)   Incorporation   Relationship
Digipath, Inc. (2)   Nevada   Parent
Digipath Labs, Inc.   Nevada   Subsidiary
TNM News, Inc.   Nevada   Subsidiary
GroSciences, Inc. (3)   Colorado   Subsidiary
Digipath Labs S.A.S. (4)   Colombia   Subsidiary

 

(1) All entities are in the form of a corporation.

(2) Holding company, which owns each of the wholly-owned subsidiaries. All subsidiaries shown above are wholly-owned by Digipath, Inc., the parent company.

(3) Commenced operations during the first fiscal quarter of 2019, but has not incurred income to date.

(4) Formed during the first fiscal quarter of 2019, but has not yet commenced operations.

 

The consolidated financial statements herein contain the operations of the wholly-owned subsidiaries listed above. All significant inter-company transactions have been eliminated in the preparation of these financial statements. The parent company and subsidiaries will be collectively referred to herein as the “Company”, “Digipath” or “DIGP”. The Company’s headquarters are located in Las Vegas, Nevada and substantially all of its customers are within the United States.

DIGIPATH, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

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.

 

Segment Reporting

 

ASC Topic 280, “Segment Reporting,” requires use of the “management approach” model for segment reporting. The management approach model is based on the way a company’s management organizes segments within the company for making operating decisions and assessing performance. The Company operates as a single segment and will evaluate additional segment disclosure requirements as it expands its operations.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Under FASB ASC 820-10-05, the Financial Accounting Standards Board establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. This Statement reaffirms that fair value is the relevant measurement attribute. The adoption of this standard did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements as reflected herein. The carrying amounts of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses reported on the balance sheets are estimated by management to approximate fair value primarily due to the short term nature of the instruments.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASC 606 — Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Under ASC 606, the Company recognizes revenue from the commercial sales of products, licensing agreements and contracts to perform pilot studies by applying the following steps: (1) identify the contract with a customer; (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (3) determine the transaction price; (4) allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation in the contract; and (5) recognize revenue when each performance obligation is satisfied. For the comparative periods, revenue has not been adjusted and continues to be reported under ASC 606 — Revenue Recognition. Under ASC 606, revenue is recognized when the following criteria are met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) the performance of service has been rendered to a customer or delivery has occurred; (3) the amount of fee to be paid by a customer is fixed and determinable; and (4) the collectability of the fee is reasonably assured.

 

There was no impact on the Company’s financial statements as a result of adopting ASC 606 for the six months ended March 31, 2019, or the twelve months ended September 30, 2018.

 

Revenue is primarily generated through our subsidiary, Digipath Labs, Inc., which recognizes revenue from the analytical testing of cannabis products to licensed producers and cultivators within the state of Nevada on a determinable fixed fee per test, or panel of tests basis. Revenue from the performance of those services is recognized upon completion of the tests, at which time test results are delivered to the customer, provided collectability of the fee is reasonably assured. We typically require payment within thirty days of the delivery of results. Management estimates an allowance for doubtful accounts based on the aging of its receivables.

 

The Company also recognizes revenue through our subsidiary, TNM News Corp., which primarily recognizes revenue from advertisements through partnered merchants. Payment for ad revenues are received prior to the distribution of the ad campaign, and the revenues are recognized ratably over the campaign. The Company defers any revenue for which the term of the campaign has not yet been realized. To date, these revenues have not been materially significant.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for equity instruments issued to employees in accordance with the provisions of ASC 718 Stock Compensation (ASC 718) and Equity-Based Payments to Non-employees pursuant to ASC 505-50 (ASC 505-50). All transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The measurement date of the fair value of the equity instrument issued is the earlier of the date on which the counterparty’s performance is complete or the date at which a commitment for performance by the counterparty to earn the equity instruments is reached because of sufficiently large disincentives for nonperformance.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2018-13, Fair Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework – Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement , which modify the disclosure requirements of Topic 820. The new guidance is effective for all entities for annual periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this ASU to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) . ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize assets and liabilities for most leases. ASU 2016-02 is effective for public entity financial statements for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those annual periods. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. ASU 2016-02 was further clarified and amended within ASU 2018-01, ASU 2018-10, ASU 2018-11 and ASU 2018-20 which included provisions that would provide us with the option to adopt the provisions of the new guidance using a modified retrospective transition approach, without adjusting the comparative periods presented. The Company is currently evaluating ASU 2016-02 and its impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

There are no other recently issued accounting pronouncements that the Company has yet to adopt that are expected to have a material effect on its financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

 

Note 2 – Going Concern

 

As shown in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company has incurred recurring losses from operations resulting in an accumulated deficit of $14,063,967, and as of March 31, 2019, the Company’s cash on hand may not be sufficient to sustain operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management is actively pursuing new customers to increase revenues. In addition, the Company is currently seeking additional sources of capital to fund short term operations. Management believes these factors will contribute toward achieving profitability. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of any uncertainty as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These financial statements also do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts, or amounts and classifications of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

Note 3 – Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Under FASB ASC 820-10-5, fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (an exit price). The standard outlines a valuation framework and creates a fair value hierarchy in order to increase the consistency and comparability of fair value measurements and the related disclosures. Under GAAP, certain assets and liabilities must be measured at fair value, and FASB ASC 820-10-50 details the disclosures that are required for items measured at fair value.

 

The Company has certain financial instruments that must be measured under the new fair value standard. The Company’s financial assets and liabilities are measured using inputs from the three levels of the fair value hierarchy. The three levels are as follows:

 

Level 1 - Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date.

 

Level 2 - Inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (e.g., interest rates, yield curves, etc.), and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means (market corroborated inputs).

 

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that reflect our assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

On November 8, 2018, the Company received proceeds of $350,000 on a senior secured convertible note that carries an 8% interest rate, which matures on December 31, 2020. The principal and interest are convertible into shares of common stock at the discretion of the note holder at a fixed conversion price of $0.14 per share. The Company’s obligations under this Note are secured by a lien on the assets of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary Digipath Labs, Inc. A total of $4,066 of interest was repaid during the six months ended March 31, 2019.   $ 350,000     $ -  
                 
On November 5, 2018, the Company received proceeds of $150,000 on a senior secured convertible note that carries an 8% interest rate, which matures on December 31, 2020. The principal and interest are convertible into shares of common stock at the discretion of the note holder at a fixed conversion price of $0.14 per share. The Company’s obligations under this Note are secured by a lien on the assets of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary Digipath Labs, Inc.     150,000       -  
                 
Total convertible notes payable     500,000       -  
Less: unamortized debt discounts     (57,978 )     -  
Convertible notes payable   $ 442,022     $ -  

 

In addition, the Company recognized and measured the embedded beneficial conversion feature present in the convertible notes by allocating a portion of the proceeds equal to the intrinsic value of the feature to additional paid-in-capital. The intrinsic value of the feature was calculated on the commitment date using the effective conversion price of the convertible notes. This intrinsic value is limited to the portion of the proceeds allocated to the convertible debt.

 

The aforementioned accounting treatment resulted in a total debt discount equal to $70,964 during the six months ended March 31, 2019. The discount is amortized on a straight-line basis from the dates of issuance until the earlier of the stated redemption date of the debts, as noted above or the actual settlement date. During the six months ended March 31, 2019, the Company recorded debt amortization expense in the amount of $12,986, attributed to the aforementioned debt discount.

 

All of the convertible notes limit the maximum number of shares that can be owned by each note holder as a result of the conversions to common stock to 4.99% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares.

 

The Company recorded interest expense pursuant to the stated interest rates on the convertible notes in the amount of $15,770 for the six months ended March 31, 2019.

Note 8 - Changes in Stockholders’ Equity

 

Convertible Preferred Stock

 

The Company is authorized to issue 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock with a par value of $0.001 per share, of which 6,000,000 have been designated as Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series A Preferred”), with the remaining 4,000,000 shares available for designation from time to time by the Board as set forth below. As of March 31, 2019, there were 1,325,942 shares of Series A Preferred issued and outstanding. The Board of Directors is authorized to determine any number of series into which the undesignated shares of preferred stock may be divided and to determine the rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions granted to any series of the preferred stock. Each share of Series A Preferred is currently convertible into five shares of common stock.

 

The conversion price is adjustable in the event of stock splits and other adjustments in the Company’s capitalization, and in the event of certain negative actions undertaken by the Company. At the current conversion price, the 1,325,942 shares of Series A Preferred outstanding at March 31, 2019 are convertible into 6,629,710 shares of the common stock of the Company. No holder is permitted to convert its shares of Series A Preferred if such conversion would cause the holder to beneficially own more than 4.99% of the issued and outstanding common stock of the Company immediately after such conversion, unless waived by such holder by providing at least sixty-five days’ notice.

 

Preferred Stock Conversions

Note 12 - Income Tax

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under FASB ASC 740-10, which requires use of the liability method. FASB ASC 740-10-25 provides that deferred tax assets and liabilities are recorded based on the differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts for financial reporting purposes, referred to as temporary differences.

 

For the six months ended March 31, 2019 and the year ended September 30, 2018, the Company incurred a net operating loss and, accordingly, no provision for income taxes has been recorded. In addition, no benefit for income taxes has been recorded due to the uncertainty of the realization of any tax assets. At March 31, 2019, the Company had approximately $8,560,000 of federal net operating losses. The net operating loss carry forwards, if not utilized, will begin to expire in 2031.

 

Based on the available objective evidence, including the Company’s history of its loss, management believes it is more likely than not that the net deferred tax assets will not be fully realizable. Accordingly, the Company provided for a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets at March 31, 2019 and September 30, 2018, respectively.

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 740, the Company has evaluated its tax positions and determined there are no uncertain tax positions.

We have been operating a cannabis testing lab in Nevada since 2015 and have plans to open labs in other states that have legalized the sale of cannabis, beginning with California.
     
  Ø The National Marijuana News Corp . provides a balanced and unbiased approach to cannabis news, interviews and education with a news/talk radio show, app, national marijuana news website and social media presence focusing on the political, economic, medicinal, scientific, and cultural dimensions of the rapidly evolving—and profoundly controversial—medicinal and recreational marijuana industry.
     
  Ø GroSciences, Inc . Launched during the first fiscal quarter of 2019 to capitalize on the extensive data we have collected from cannabis through the testing process. GroSciences plans to develop and license specific formulations to other producers and product makers in the industry.

 

Our cannabis testing revenues improved slightly over the previous fiscal quarter, but was substantially lower than our comparative six month period ending March 31, 2018. This decrease was primarily the result of the temporary suspension by regulators of two of our competitors in the prior year’s quarter, resulting in a significant increase in our sales during that quarter. Our revenues stabilized subsequent to the prior period when these competitors were reinstated. As an ISO 17025:2017 accredited lab, we believe that we are now well positioned to handle future growth in full compliance with Nevada’s regulations applicable to our operations and are actively working to expand to other jurisdictions.

 

We are currently seeking to expand our lab testing services to Colombia, and to that end have retained Colombian counsel, formed a Colombian subsidiary and hired two local employees. Our goal is to launch a testing lab in Colombia by the end of the fiscal year, although there can be no assurance that we will be successful in that regard.

 

In January 2019, we entered into an agreement to provide potency testing laboratories for hemp production at sites owned by Hemp, Inc. in North Carolina, Oregon and Arizona. Under the terms of the agreement, we will oversee and manage the construction and build out of a hemp potency-testing laboratory in three of Hemp Inc.’s locations and Hemp. Inc. will provide the space for the testing laboratories at no cost to us. Construction has not yet commenced.

 

We are also exploring opportunities to capitalize on the extensive data we have collected from our cannabis testing activities. Through our wholly-owned subsidiary, GroSciences, Inc., we intend to license specific formulations and intellectual property developed from our experience in the cannabis industry. We have not yet commenced operations for this initiative, other than minimal research and development activities and patent filings.

Revenues

 

Revenues were generated by our cannabis testing lab and to a de minimis extent, from advertising on TNM News’ media outlets. Aggregate revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2019 were $651,555, compared to revenues of $583,073 during the three months ended March 31, 2018, an increase of $68,482, or 12%. The increase in revenue was due to industry growth and expansion to hemp testing during the current period .

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales for the three months ended March 31, 2019 were $427,830, compared to $665,858 during the three months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $238,028, or 36%. Cost of sales consists primarily of labor, depreciation, maintenance on lab equipment, and supplies consumed in our testing operations. The decreased cost of sales in the current period was primarily due to better pricing on our consumable supplies, and improved efficiencies with respect to our labor. Our gross margins of approximately 34%, increased during the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to gross margins of approximately negative 14% during the three months ended March 31, 2018, due primarily to decreased cost of sales in the current quarter and increased costs in the prior quarter when we devoted significant resources to the improvement of operations and compliance with regulations, including the ISO 17025:2017 requirement.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2019 were $418,505, compared to $348,399 during the three months ended March 31, 2018, an increase of $70,106, or 20%. The expenses consisted primarily of marketing, rent, salaries and wages, and travel expenses. General and administrative expense increased during the current period due to increased travel expenses.

 

Professional Fees

 

Professional fees for the three months ended March 31, 2019 were $235,667, compared to $249,111 during the three months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $13,444, or 5%. Professional fees included non-cash, stock-based compensation of $143,574 and $191,976 during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018, respectively. Professional fees decreased primarily due to decreased stock-based compensation during the current period.

Bad Debts Expense

 

Bad debts expense for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $25,265, compared to $42,301 during the three months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $17,036, or 40%. Bad debts expense decreased during the current period as our allowance for doubtful accounts decreased with greater resources devoted to collection efforts during the quarter. Our bad debts expense due to the change in our allowance for doubtful accounts was 4% and 7% of sales for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

 

Operating Loss

 

Our operating loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $455,712, compared to $722,596 during the three months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $266,884, or 37%. Our operating loss decreased primarily due to increased margins, as offset in part by increased investor relations expenses, during the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

Other Income

 

Other income for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $4,247, compared to other income of $22,200 during the three months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $17,953, or 81%.

Net Loss

 

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $451,465, compared to $700,396 during the three months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $248,931, or 36%. The decreased net loss was due primarily to increased gross profits, as described above, as offset in part by interest expense on debt financing.

Revenues

 

Revenues were generated by our cannabis testing lab and to a de minimis extent, from advertising on TNM News’ media outlets. Aggregate revenues for the six months ended March 31, 2019 were $1,293,670, compared to revenues of $1,701,858 during the six months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $408,188, or 24%. The decrease in revenue was due to a spike in revenues in the comparative fiscal quarter ending March 31, 2018 due to regulators’ temporary suspension of two of our competitors during that period . Our revenues normalized when these competitors were reinstated .

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales for the six months ended March 31, 2019 were $910,150, compared to $1,042,630 during the six months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $132,480, or 13%. Cost of sales consists primarily of labor, depreciation, maintenance on lab equipment, and supplies consumed in our testing operations. The decreased cost of sales in the current period was primarily due to better pricing on our consumable supplies, and improved efficiencies with respect to our labor. Our gross margins of approximately 30%, decreased during the six months ended March 31, 2019, compared to gross margins of approximately 39% during the six months ended March 31, 2018 when we experienced a spike in revenues.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses for the six months ended March 31, 2019 were $808,976, compared to $747,513 during the six months ended March 31, 2018, an increase of $61,463, or 8%.

Bad Debts Expense

 

Bad debts expense for the six months ended March 31, 2019 was $49,830, compared to $98,241 during the six months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $48,411, or 49%.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The following is a summary of the Company’s cash flows provided by (used in) operating, investing, and financing activities for the six month periods ended March 31, 2019 and 2018:

 

    2019     2018  
Operating Activities   $ (690,634 )   $ 101,547  
Investing Activities     (96,375 )     (186,370 )
Financing Activities     1,125,000       143,008  
Net Increase in Cash   $ 337,991     $ 58,185  

 

Net Cash Provided by (Used in) Operating Activities

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2019, net cash used in operating activities was $690,634, compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $101,547 for the same period ended March 31, 2018. The increase in cash used in operating activities is primarily attributable to our increased net loss as we didn’t benefit from the decreased competition from the suspension of two competing cannabis testing labs in the current period, as we did in the prior period .

 

Net Cash Used in Investing Activities

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2019, net cash used in investing activities was $96,375, compared to $186,370 for the same period ended March 31, 2018. The decrease is attributable to investments made for cannabis testing equipment in the prior period that was not necessary in the current period, in addition to the advancement of short term loans during the current period.

 

Net Cash Provided by Financing Activities

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2019, net cash provided by financing activities was $1,125,000, compared to $143,008 for the same period ended March 31, 2018. The current period consisted of proceeds received on fixed convertible debt financing at $0.14 per share and the sale of $625,000 of common stock, while the comparative period consisted of proceeds received from the sale of stock and warrants.

 

Ability to Continue as a Going Concern

 

As of March 31, 2019, our balance of cash on hand was $514,018. We currently may not have sufficient funds to sustain our operations for the next twelve months and we may need to raise additional cash to fund our operations and expand our lab testing business. As we continue to develop our lab testing business and attempt to expand operational activities, we expect to experience net negative cash flows from operations in amounts not now determinable, and will be required to obtain additional financing to fund operations through common stock offerings to the extent necessary to provide working capital. We have and expect to continue to have substantial capital expenditure and working capital needs.

 

The Company has incurred recurring losses from operations resulting in an accumulated deficit, and, as set forth above, the Company’s cash on hand is not sufficient to sustain operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management is actively pursuing new customers to increase revenues. In addition, the Company is currently seeking additional sources of capital to fund short term operations. In the event sales do not materialize at the expected rates, management would seek additional financing or would attempt to conserve cash by further reducing expenses. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in achieving these objectives, becoming profitable or continuing our business without either a temporary interruption or a permanent cessation . In addition, additional financing may result in substantial dilution to existing stockholders.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no outstanding off-balance sheet guarantees, interest rate swap transactions or foreign currency contracts. We do not engage in trading activities involving non-exchange traded contracts.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires our management to make assumptions, estimates and judgments that affect the amounts reported, including the notes thereto, and related disclosures of commitments and contingencies, if any. We have identified certain accounting policies that are significant to the preparation of our financial statements. These accounting policies are important for an understanding of our financial condition and results of operations. Critical accounting policies are those that are most important to the presentation of our financial condition and results of operations and require management’s subjective or complex judgment, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain and may change in subsequent periods. Certain accounting estimates are particularly sensitive because of their significance to financial statements and because of the possibility that future events affecting the estimate may differ significantly from management’s current judgments.

 

While our significant accounting policies are more fully described in notes to our consolidated financial statements appearing elsewhere in this Form 10-Q, we believe that the following accounting policies are the most critical to aid you in fully understanding and evaluating our reported financial results and affect the more significant judgments and estimates that we used in the preparation of our financial statements.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company has adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) . This update provides guidance on recognizing revenue, including a five-step model to determine when revenue recognition is appropriate. The standard requires that an entity recognize revenue from contracts with customers to depict the transfer of control of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The new update does not affect how the Company recognizes revenue in accordance with ASC 606, Revenue Recognition. ASC 606 requires that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery of product has met the criteria established in the arrangement or services rendered; (3) the fee is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. With respect to our cannabis lab testing revenues, we sell our services on a determinable fixed fee per test, or panel of tests basis, and offer a discounted price for customers that agree to exclusive or predetermined quantities of tests. W e typically require payment within thirty days of the delivery of results. Revenues are recognized upon the substantial completion of the tests when collectability is reasonably assured, which is usually upon delivery of results to the customer.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for equity instruments issued to employees in accordance with the provisions of ASC 718 Stock Compensation (ASC 718) and Equity-Based Payments to Non-employees pursuant to ASC 505-50 (ASC 505-50). All transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The measurement date of the fair value of the equity instrument issued is the earlier of the date on which the counterparty’s performance is complete or the date at which a commitment for performance by the counterparty to earn the equity instruments is reached because of sufficiently large disincentives for nonperformance.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2019. The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives, and management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Based on the evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2019, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no significant changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) or in other factors that occurred during the period of our evaluation or subsequent to the date we carried out our evaluation which have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. The design of any system of controls and procedures is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events. There can be no assurance that any system of controls and procedures will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions, regardless of how remote.
