THE 4LESS GROUP, INC.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)


NOTE 1 – NATURE OF BUSINESS AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES


Business:


The 4LESS Group, Inc, was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on December 5, 2007.


On November 29, 2018, the Company entered into a transaction (the “Share Exchange”), pursuant to which the Company acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding equity securities of The 4LESS Corp. (“4LESS”), in exchange for the issuance of (i) nineteen thousand (19,000) shares of Series B Preferred Stock, (ii) six thousand seven hundred fifty (6,750) shares of Series C Preferred Stock, and (iii) 870 shares of Series D Preferred Stock. The Series C Preferred Shares have a right to convert into common stock of the Company by multiplying the number of issued and outstanding shares of common stock by 2.63 on the conversion date. The Share Exchange closed on November 29, 2018. As a result of the Share Exchange, the former shareholders of 4LESS became the controlling shareholders of the Company. The Share Exchange was accounted for as a reverse takeover/recapitalization effected by a share exchange, wherein 4LESS is considered the acquirer for accounting and financial reporting purposes. The capital, share price, and earnings per share amount in these consolidated financial statements for the period prior to the reverse merger were restated to reflect the recapitalization in accordance with the shares issued as a result of the reverse merger except otherwise noted.


4LESS was formed as Vegas Suspension & Offroad, LLC on October 24, 2013 as a Nevada limited liability company and converted to a Nevada corporation with the same name on May 8, 2017. On April 2, 2018, the Company changed its name to The 4LESS Corp. The Corporation had S Corporation status. The Corporation operates as an e-commerce auto and truck parts sales company. As a result of the share exchange, the Company is now a holding company operating through 4LESS and offers products including exhaust systems, suspension systems, wheels, tires, stereo systems, truck bed covers, and shocks.


Significant Accounting Policies:


The Company’s management selects accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and adopts methods for their application. The application of accounting principles requires the estimating, matching and timing of revenue and expense. The accounting policies used conform to generally accepted accounting principles which have been consistently applied in the preparation of these financial statements.


Basis of Presentation:


The Company prepares its financial statements on the accrual basis of accounting in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.


The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim unaudited consolidated financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for complete consolidated financial statements. Certain information and footnote disclosure normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been omitted pursuant to instructions, rules, and regulations prescribed by the SEC. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented except for the recapitalization transaction described in Note 1 above. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements of the Company for the year ended January 31, 2019 and notes thereto contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on August 21, 2019.


Principles of Consolidation:


The financial statements include the accounts of The 4LESS Group, Inc. as well as The 4LESS Corp. and JBJ Wholesale LLC. All significant inter-company transactions have been eliminated. All amounts are presented in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise stated.

Use of Estimates:


In order to prepare financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, management must make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and determine whether contingent assets and liabilities, if any, are disclosed in the financial statements. The ultimate resolution of issues requiring these estimates and assumptions could differ significantly from resolution currently anticipated by management and on which the financial statements are based. Some significant estimates include the valuation of derivative liabilities, the imputed rate for leases, returns and allowances, and inventory.


Cash and Cash Equivalents:


The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. At times, cash balances may be in excess of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) insurance limits. The carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents approximates fair market value.


Inventory Valuation


Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Inventories are valued on a first-in, first-out (FIFO) basis. Inventory is comprised of finished goods.


Leases


We adopted ASU No. 2016-02—Leases (Topic 842), as amended, as of February 1, 2019, using the full retrospective approach. The full retrospective approach provides a method for recording existing leases at adoption and in comparative periods. In addition, we elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard, which among other things, allowed us to carry forward the historical lease classification.


In addition, we elected the hindsight practical expedient to determine the lease term for existing leases. Our election of the hindsight practical expedient resulted in the shortening of lease terms for certain existing leases and the useful lives of corresponding leasehold improvements. In our application of hindsight, we evaluated the performance of the leased stores and the associated markets in relation to our overall real estate strategies, which resulted in the determination that most renewal options would not be reasonably certain in determining the expected lease term.


Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of additional net lease assets and lease liabilities of $454,087 and $454,087 respectively, as of February 1, 2019. The standard did not materially impact our consolidated net earnings, retained earnings and had no impact on cash flows.


Income Taxes


Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized when items of income and expense are recognized in the financial statements in different periods than when recognized in the tax return. Deferred tax assets arise when expenses are recognized in the financial statements before the tax returns or when income items are recognized in the tax return prior to the financial statements. Deferred tax assets also arise when operating losses or tax credits are available to offset tax payments due in future years. Deferred tax liabilities arise when income items are recognized in the financial statements before the tax returns or when expenses are recognized in the tax return prior to the financial statements. 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 income in the period that includes the enactment date.


On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Act”) was signed into law. ASC 740, Accounting for Income Taxes requires companies to recognize the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on deferred tax assets and liabilities and the retroactive effects of changes in tax laws in the period in which the new legislation is enacted. The Company’s gross deferred tax assets were revalued based on the reduction in the federal statutory tax rate from 35% to 21%. A corresponding offset has been made to the valuation allowance, and any potential other taxes arising due to the Tax Act will result in reductions to the Company’s net operating loss carry-forward and valuation allowance.


- 8 -



On November 29, 2018, the Company completed a merger with The 4Less Corp., in which the Company issued shares to acquire the outstanding shares of The 4Less Corp., which resulted in a more than 50% change in control of the Company.  While the Company has not yet performed the required analysis, the Company is of the belief that the requirements governing its net operating loss carryforwards under section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code of the United States have been met.  The result of this is that going forward, the Company expects that it will be limited, which will not be known until its completion of the required analysis, in its utilization in any given year of those net operating loss carryforwards prior to their expiration.


Fair Value of Financial Instruments:


The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash, accounts payable, advances and notes payable. The Company considers the carrying value of such amounts in the financial statements to approximate their fair value due to the short-term nature of these financial instruments. Derivatives are recorded at fair value at each period end. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the reporting date.


The ASC guidance for fair value measurements and disclosure establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:


Level 1 Inputs – Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.


Level 2 Inputs – Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model-derived valuations whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable.


Level 3 Inputs – Instruments with primarily unobservable value drivers.


The following table sets forth, by level within the fair value hierarchy, the Company’s financial liabilities that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis as of April 30, 2019:

Related Party Transactions:


The Company has a verbal policy that includes procedures intended to ensure compliance with the related party provisions in common practice for public companies. For purposes of the policy, a “related party transaction” is a transaction in which the Company or any one of its subsidiaries participates and in which a related party has a direct or indirect material interest, other than ordinary course, arms-length transactions of less than 1% of the revenue of the counterparty. Any transaction exceeding the 1% threshold, and any transaction involving consulting, financial advisory, legal or accounting services that could impair a director’s independence, must be approved by the CEO. Any related party transaction in which an executive officer or a Director has a personal interest, or which could present a possible conflict under the Guide to Ethical Conduct, must be approved by Board of Directors, following appropriate disclosure of all material aspects of the transaction.

Derivative Liability


The derivative liabilities are valued as a level 3 input for valuing financial instruments. The derivatives arise from convertible debt where the debt is convertible into common stock at variable conversion prices and reclassification of equity instrument to liability due to insufficient shares for issuance. As the price of the common stock varies, it triggers a gain or loss based upon the discount to market assuming the debt was converted at the balance sheet date. When evaluating the effect of the issuance of new equity-linked or equity-settled instruments on previously issued instruments, the Company uses first-in, first-out method (“FIFO”) where authorized and unused shares would first be used to satisfy the earliest issued equity-linked instruments. As of July 31, 2019, warrants to purchase 583 common shares issued in July 2014 were not classified as derivative liability while the remaining warrants outstanding were classified as derivative liability based on the FIFO method.


The fair value of the derivative liability is determined using a lattice model, is re-measured on the Company’s reporting dates, and is affected by changes in inputs to that model including our stock price, expected stock price volatility, the expected term, and the risk-free interest rate.


Revenue Recognition


The Company recognizes revenue under ASC 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The core principle of the revenue standard is that a company should recognize revenue when control is transfered over the promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company only applies the five-step model to contracts when it is probable that the Company will collect the consideration it is entitled to in exchange for the goods and services transferred to the customer. The following five steps are applied to achieve that core principle:


Step 1: Identify the contract with the customer


Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract


Step 3: Determine the transaction price


Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract


Step 5: Recognize revenue when the company satisfies a performance obligation


Because the Company’s sales agreements generally have an expected duration of one year or less, the Company has elected the practical expedient in ASC 606-10-50-14(a) to not disclose information about its remaining performance obligations.


The Company’s performance obligations are satisfied at the point in time when products are received by the customer, which is when the customer has title and obtained the significant risks and rewards of ownership. Therefore, the Company’s contracts have a single performance obligation (shipment of product). The Company primarily receives fixed consideration for sales of product. Shipping and handling amounts paid by customers are primarily for online orders, and are included in revenue. Sales tax and other similar taxes are excluded from revenue.


Revenue is recorded net of provisions for discounts and promotion allowances, which are typically agreed to upfront with the customer and do not represent variable consideration. Discounts and promotional allowances vary the consideration the Company is entitled to in exchange for the sale of products to customers. The Company recognizes these discounts and promotional allowances in the same period that the revenue is recognized for products sales to customers. The amount of revenue recognized represents the amount that will not be subject to a significant future reversal of revenue.The customer pays the Company by credit card prior to delivery.


The Company offers a 30 day satisfaction guaranteed return policy however the customer must pay for the return shipment. The return must be previously authorized, cannot be either damaged or previously installed and must be in saleable condition. In the Company’s experience this amount is immaterial and therefore no provision has been recorded on the Company’s books. Any defective merchandise falls under the manufacturer’s limited warranty and is subject to the manufacturer’s inspection. The manufacturer has the option to repair or replace the item.

Stock-Based Compensation:


The Company accounts for stock options at fair value. The Company estimates the fair value of each stock option at the grant date by using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model and provides for expense recognition over the service period, if any, of the stock option.


Loss Per Common Share:


The weighted average number of common shares outstanding during each period is used to compute basic loss per share. Diluted loss per common share are computed using the weighted average number of common shares and potentially dilutive common shares outstanding. Potentially dilutive common shares are additional common shares assumed to be exercised. Potentially dilutive common shares are excluded from the diluted earnings per share computation in periods where the Company has incurred a net loss, as their effect would be considered anti-dilutive.


The Company had 5,667 warrants and 6,750 shares of Series C Preferred Stock outstanding at July 31, 2019 which were potentially dilutive common stock equivalents but would be antidilutive and are not included. As the Company incurred a net loss during the three months ended April 30, 2019, the basic and diluted loss per common share is the same amount, as any common stock equivalents would be considered anti-dilutive. Excluded from this calculation are convertible notes of $2,662,669 and $2,209,180 at July 31, 2019 and January 31, 2019, respectively, since the impact would be antidilutive thus not included. The warrants and Series C Preferred Stock could be converted into 47,150,347 common shares as of July 31, 2019 and could convert into 853,034.947 common shares at November 7, 2019.


Recently Issued Accounting Standards:


In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350) which simplifies goodwill impairment testing by requiring that such periodic testing be performed by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount and recognizing an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of Topic 350 on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures, which is effective for fiscal years, including interim periods, beginning after December 15, 2019.


Fair Value Measurement: In 2018, the FASB issued amended guidance to remove, modify and add disclosure requirements for fair value measurements. This amendment is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted for any removed or modified disclosure requirements. Transition is on a prospective basis for the new and modified disclosures, and on a retrospective basis for disclosures that have been eliminated. The adoption of this guidance is not expected to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.


In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvement to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which is part of the FASB’s simplification initiative to maintain or improve the usefulness of the information provided to the users of financial statements while reducing cost and complexity in financial reporting. This update provides consistency in the accounting for share-based payments to nonemployees with that of employees. The updated guidance had no impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.


In addition to the above, the Company has reviewed all other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, and does not believe the future adoption of any such pronouncements will have a material impact on its financial condition or the results of its operations.


There were various other accounting standards and interpretations issued recently, none of which are expected to a have a material impact on our financial position, operations or cash flows.

NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN AND FINANCIAL POSITION


The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has incurred cumulative losses through July 31, 2019 of $19,255,805 and has a working capital deficit at July 31, 2019 of $5,758,110. As of July 31, 2019, the Company only had cash and cash equivalents of $53,141 and had short-term debt in default. The short-term debt agreements provide legal remedies for satisfaction of defaults, none of the lenders to this point have pursued their legal remedies. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of one year from the date that the financial statements were issued.


The potential proceeds from the sale of common stock and other contemplated debt and equity financing, and increases in operating revenues from new development and business acquisitions might enable the Company to continue as a going concern. However, revenues have not been sufficient to cover operating costs that would permit the Company to continue as a going concern historically and there can be no assurance that the Company can or will be able to complete any debt or equity financing, or develop or acquire one or more business interests under favorable terms. The Company plans to grow revenues through the funding provided by investors through the issuance of debt and equity as well as strategic leveraging of its online brands. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.


NOTE 3 – LEASES


We lease certain warehouses and office space. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet; we recognize lease expense for these leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term. For lease agreements entered into or reassessed after the adoption of Topic 842, we did not combine lease and non-lease components.


Most leases include one or more options to renew, with renewal terms that can extend the lease term from one to 17 years or more. The exercise of lease renewal options is at our sole discretion. The depreciable life of assets and leasehold improvements are limited by the expected lease term, unless there is a transfer of title or purchase option reasonably certain of exercise.


Below is a summary of our lease assets and liabilities at July 31, 2019 and January 31, 2019.

(i) If the Company fails to maintain its status as “DTC Eligible” for any reason, or, if the effective Conversion Price as calculated in Section 4(a) is less than $0.0001 at any time (regardless of whether or not a Conversion Notice has been submitted to the Company), the Principal Amount of the Note shall increase by ten thousand dollars ($10,000) (under Holder’s and Company’s expectation that any Principal Amount increase will tack back to the Issuance Date). In addition, the Conversion Price shall be permanently redefined to equal the lesser of (a) $0.00001 or (b) 50% of the lowest traded price during the twenty five (25) consecutive Trading Days immediately preceding the applicable Conversion Date on which the Holder elects to convert all or part of this Note, subject to adjustment as provided in this Note. If the Company fails to maintain the share reserve at the 4x discount of the note 60 days after the issuance of the note, the conversion discount shall be increased by 10%. If at any time while this Note is outstanding, an Event of Default (as defined herein) occurs, then an additional discount of 15% shall be factored into the Variable Conversion Price until this Note is no longer outstanding (resulting in a discount rate of 65% assuming no other adjustments are triggered hereunder). These above contingencies have not occurred.


(ii) In the event the Company experiences a DTC ” Chill” on its shares, the conversion price shall be decreased to 40% instead of 50% while that “Chill” is in effect. If the Company fails to maintain the share reserve at the 4x discount of the note 60 days after the issuance of the note, the conversion discount shall be increased by 10%.


(iii) The share purchase agreements ancillary to the convertible note agrements do not allow the lender to engage in short sales.


The Company had accrued interest payable of $583,155 and $463,839 on the notes at July 31, 2019 and January 31, 2019, respectively.


The Company analyzed the conversion option for derivative accounting consideration under ASC 815-15 “Derivatives and Hedging” and determined that some instruments should be classified as liabilities due to there being no explicit limit to the number of shares to be delivered upon settlement of the above conversion options. The instruments are measured at fair value at the end of each reporting period or termination of the instrument with the change in fair value recorded to earnings. The fair value of the embedded conversion option resulted in a discount to the note on the debt modification date. For the six months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company recorded amortization expense of $473,050 and $0, respectively. See more information in Note 6.


During the six months ended July 31, 2019 the Company entered into new convertible notes totaling $732,074 with one year maturities, interest rates ranging from 8%-15%, the Company received $573,250 in cash proceeds, recorded original issue discounts of $41,675 and loan and interest of $117,149 was transferred from existing notes of the same lender.


During the six months ended July 31, 2019, the Company converted a total of $464,582 of the convertible notes, $151,431 accrued interest and $5,500 in fees into 17,318,439 common shares and the Company released the associated derivative liability of $547,954 referred to in Note 6. Also, $252,795 in loan penalties were added to various note balances with $75,599 recorded as interest expense and $177,196 recorded as part of the amortization of debt discount.


As of July 31, 2018, the Company had $525,037 of aggregate debt in default. The agreements provide legal remedies for satisfaction of defaults, none of the lenders to this point have pursued their legal remedies. The Company continues to accrue interest at the listed rates, and plans to seek their conversion or payoff within the next twelve months.


Each note is convertible with a conversion price for each share equal to the lower of: (a) 50% lowest bid price of the common stock, as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the common stock may be traded in the future, for the 20 (twenty) prior trading days including the day of issuance of this herein Note or (b) 50% lowest bid price of the common stock, as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the common stock may be traded in the future, for the 20 (twenty) prior trading days including the day upon which a Notice of Conversion of the Note, is received by the Company

NOTE 6 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES


As of July 31, 2019 and January 31, 2019, the Company had derivative liabilities of $2,210,541 and $2,041,260, respectively. During the three months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company recorded a gain of $998.792 and $0, from the change in the fair value of derivative liabilities, respectively During the six months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company recorded a gain of $88,350 and $0, from the change in the fair value of derivative liabilities, respectively. Any liabilities resulting from the warrants outstanding are immaterial.


The derivative liabilities are valued as a level 3 input for valuing financial instruments.


The derivatives arise from convertible debt where the debt is convertible into common stock at variable conversion prices which are linked to the trading and/or bid prices of the Company’s common stock as traded on the OTC market. As the price of the common stock varies it triggers a gain or loss based upon the discount to market assuming the debt was converted at the balance sheet date.


The fair value of the derivative liability is determined using the lattice model, is re-measured on the Company’s reporting dates, and is affected by changes in inputs to that model including our stock price, expected stock price volatility, the expected term, and the risk-free interest rate. In our calculation at July 31, 2019, stock price range from $0.01-$1.00 volatility ranged from 338.3% to 525.3%, the term ranged from 0.22 to 3.00 years, and the risk free interest rate was from 0.64% to 2.55%.

Company


The 4LESS Group Inc. (“FLES”, the “Company”, “we” or “us”), the Company described herein, was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on December 5, 2007, with offices located at 4850 N Rancho Dr # 130, Las Vegas NV 89130. It can be reached by phone at (662) 510-5866.


Nature of Business –


On November 29, 2018, the Company entered into a transaction (the “Share Exchange”), pursuant to which the Company acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding equity securities of The 4LESS Corp. (“4LESS”), in exchange for the issuance of (i) nineteen thousand (19,000) shares of Series B Preferred Stock, (ii) six thousand seven hundred fifty (6,750) shares of Series C Preferred Stock, and (iii) 870 shares of Series D Preferred Stock. The Series C Preferred Shares have a right to convert into common stock of the Company by multiplying the number of issued and outstanding shares of common stock by 2.63 on the conversion date. The Share Exchange closed on November 29, 2018. As a result of the Share Exchange, the former shareholders of 4LESS became the controlling shareholders of the Company. The Share Exchange was accounted for as a reverse takeover/recapitalization effected by a share exchange, wherein 4LESS is considered the acquirer for accounting and financial reporting purposes. The capital, share price, and earnings per share amount in these consolidated financial statements for the period prior to the reverse merger were restated to reflect the recapitalization in accordance with the shares issued as a result of the reverse merger except otherwise noted. The prior period results up until the transaction date would include the results of operations of only 4LESS.


4LESS was formed as Vegas Suspension & Offroad, LLC on October 24, 2013 as a Nevada limited liability company and converted to a Nevada corporation with the same name on May 8, 2017. On April 2, 2018, the Company changed its name to The 4LESS Corp. The Corporation had S Corporation status. The Corporation operates as an e-commerce auto and truck parts sales company. As a result of the share exchange, the Company is now a holding company operating through 4LESS and offers products including exhaust systems, suspension systems, wheels, tires, stereo systems, truck bed covers, and shocks.


In 2018 The 4Less Corp (“4Less”) invested heavily in technologies to support our current and future growth initiatives. These technologies included customer relations management software (CRM) linking all marketplaces together seamlessly and inventory API data feeds linking hundreds of thousands of auto parts inventory levels for availability to be sold. Opening our first warehouse/distribution center here in Las Vegas with our proprietary warehouse software in April of 2018 has further positioned 4Less to capitalize on the multi-billion dollar aftermarket auto parts sector. Additionally, we launched a small manufacturing partnership program which will allow small manufactures to utilize the company’s platform to push their products in front of millions of potential buyers across the globe.


- 20 -



4Less management believes that the 4Less proprietary web sites, which includes order customization, live chat, install videos, directions and installation services, offer the best buying experience for consumers interested in purchasing aftermarket auto parts on the internet today.


As a result of these many upgrades, the complexity of many of our products and the ability to drive more traffic to our proprietary websites where margins are greater, we felt it was in the best interest of the company to terminate its relationship with Amazon. We expect all of these decisions to help The 4Less Corp achieve growth goals for 2020.


Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended July 31, 2019 Compared to the Three Months Ended July 31, 2018


We had revenue of $2,059,700 for the three months ended July 31, 2019, compared to $2,052,419 for the three months ended July 31, 2018. We had total cost of revenues of $1,557,617 for the three months ended July 31, 2019, compared to cost of revenues of $1,473,662 for the three months ended July 31, 2018. For the three months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018 gross profit was $502,083 and $578,757, respectively. Sales increased slightly by $7,281. Although we discontinued sales on Amazon.com because of lower profitability we increased our sales by increasing traffic to our other websites to compensate. Cost of revenues increased due to a change in product mix and fewer drop shipments to customers.


We had total operating expenses of $961,880 for the three months ended July 31, 2019, consisting of $8,749 of depreciation, $119,753 postage, shipping and freight, $74,766 of marketing and advertising, $189,422 of e-commerce expenses, commissions and fees, $26,701 of operating lease cost, $302,116 of personnel costs and $240,373 of general and administrative expenses. For the three months ended July 31, 2018, we had total operating expenses of $742,200, consisting of $8,266 of depreciation, $98,699 postage, shipping and freight, $48,241 of marketing and advertising expenses, $233,629 of e-commerce expenses, commissions, and fees, $13,901 of operating lease cost, $258,004 of personnel costs and $81,460 of general and administrative expenses. Operating expenses for the three months ended July 31, 2019 were generally higher because they were the combined operations of the 4 Less Group Inc. whereas the prior period consisted of the results of The 4 Less Corp. only. The greatest increase was in personnel costs as we invested heavily to make sure we had great customer service and support, both in the office and with customers, as we grow our business. In comparing the three months ended July 31, 2019 and July 31, 2018: postage, shipping and freight increased by $21,054 due to fewer drop shipments in 2019 thus higher shipping costs, due to an expanding product line there were new items that needed to be warehoused and shipped. Marketing and advertising increased by $26,525 as more money was spent to drive traffic to websites were no commissions and fees are paid which explains the decrease in e-commerce expenses, commissions, and fees of $ 44,207 which represents the fees paid on the discontinued sales mentioned above. General and admin increased due to the inclusion of the 4 Less Group Inc. in 2019 as mentioned above as well as a new warehouse added in July 2018 and health insurance added in 2019.


We had total other income (expense) of $706,376 for the three months ended July 31, 2019, consisting of interest expense of $(114,785), gain on derivatives of $998,792, and amortization of debt discount of $(170,684). We had total other income (expense) of $(744) for three months ended July 31, 2018, consisting of interest expense of $(744) and loss on sale property and equipment of $(6,947). Again the results of the three months ended July 31, 2019 were generally higher because they were the combined operations of The 4 Less Group Inc. which contained the interest, discount and derivatives derived from the convertible debt whereas the prior period consisted of the results of The 4 Less Corp. only which had none.


We had a net loss of $246,579 for the three months ended July 31, 2019, compared to a net loss of $164,187 for the three months ended July 31, 2018 explained in the reasons given above.


Results of Operations for the Six Months Ended July 31, 2019 Compared to the Six Months Ended July 31, 2018


We had revenue of $4,327,925 for the six months ended July 31, 2019, compared to $4,441,842 for the six months ended July 31, 2018. We had total cost of revenues of $3,150,080 for the six months ended July 31, 2019, compared to cost of revenues of $3,182,221 for the six months ended July 31, 2018. For the six months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018 gross profit was $1,177,845 and $1,259,621, respectively. Sales decreased due to discontinuing sales on Amazon.com because of higher commission expenses. Cost of revenues and gross profit decreased as sales decreased, however, the Company’s profitability was higher due to now lower commission expenses.


We had total operating expenses of $1,959,896 for the six months ended July 31, 2019, consisting of $18,989 of depreciation, $231,985 postage, shipping and freight, $121,379 of marketing and advertising, $388,941 of e-commerce expenses, commissions and fees, $53,402 of operating lease cost, $650,669 of personnel costs and $494,531 of general and administrative expenses. For the six months ended July 31, 2018, we had total operating expenses of $1,482,807, consisting of $14,737 of depreciation, $211,291 postage, shipping and freight, $81,897 of marketing and advertising expenses, $500,340 of e-commerce expenses commissions and fees,

Liquidity and Capital Resources


Management believes that we will continue to incur losses for the immediate future. Therefore, we will need additional equity or debt financing until we can achieve profitability and positive cash flows from operating activities, if ever. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include and adjustments relating to the recovery of assets or the classification of liabilities that may be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern. For the three months ended July 31, 2019, we have generated revenue and are trying to achieve positive cash flows from operations.


As of July 31, 2019, we had a cash balance of $53,141, inventory of $437,597 and $6,314,030 in current liabilities. At the current cash consumption rate, we may need to consider additional funding sources going forward. We are taking proactive measures to reduce operating expenses and drive growth in revenue.


The successful outcome of future activities cannot be determined at this time and there is no assurance that, if achieved, we will have sufficient funds to execute our intended business plan or generate positive operating results.

ITEM 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosure about Market Risk.


Pursuant to Item 305(e) of Regulation S-K (§ 229.305(e)), we are not required to provide the information required by this Item as it is a “smaller reporting company,” as defined by Rule 229.10(f)(1).

ITEM 4. Controls and Procedures


(a)           Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures. Our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, after evaluating the effectiveness of our “disclosure controls and procedures” (as defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (the “Evaluation Date”), has concluded that as of the Evaluation Date, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to provide reasonable assurance that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Moving forward, we hope that our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer will be able to devote the additional time and effort required so that our disclosure controls and procedures are once again effective. Notwithstanding the assessment that our internal controls and procedures were not effective, we believe that our financial statements contained in this Quarterly Report for the quarter ended July 31, 2019 fairly present our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the years and months covered thereby in all material respects.


(b)           Changes in internal control over financial reporting. There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during our most recent fiscal quarter that materially affected, or were reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
