CONDENSED NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - UNAUDITED

DECEMBER 31, 2019 AND 2018

 

1. Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the six months ended December 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ended June 30, 2020. For further information refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2019.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying condensed unaudited financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis of accounting, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets and liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The accompanying condensed unaudited financial statements do not reflect any adjustments that might result if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. The Company does not generate revenue, and has negative cash flows from operations, which raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern and appropriateness of using the going concern basis is dependent upon, among other things, additional cash infusion. The Company has historically obtained funds through private placement offerings of equity and debt. Management believes that it will be able to continue to raise funds by sale of its securities to its existing shareholders and prospective new investors to provide the additional cash needed to meet the Company’s obligations as they become due and will allow the development of its core business. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to continue raising the required capital.

 

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

This summary of significant accounting policies of HyperSolar, Inc. is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s financial statements. The financial statements and notes are representations of the Company’s management, which is responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalent

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

Use of Estimates

 

In accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, management utilizes estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. These estimates and assumptions relate to useful lives and impairment of tangible and intangible assets, accruals, income taxes, stock-based compensation expense, Binomial lattice valuation model inputs, derivative liabilities and other factors. Management believes it has exercised reasonable judgment in deriving these estimates. Consequently, a change in conditions could affect these estimates.

 

Intangible Assets

 

The Company has patent applications to protect the inventions and processes behind its proprietary bio-based back-sheet, a protective covering for the back of photovoltaic solar modules traditionally made from petroleum-based film. Intangible assets that have finite useful lives continue to be amortized over their useful lives.

 

The Company recognized amortization expense of $3,923 and $3,064 for the six months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

 

Net Earnings (Loss) per Share Calculations

 

Net earnings (Loss) per share dictates the calculation of basic earnings (loss) per share and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings (loss) per share are computed by dividing by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the year. Diluted net earnings (loss) per share is computed similar to basic earnings (loss) per share except that the denominator is increased to include the effect of stock options and stock based awards (Note 4), plus the assumed conversion of convertible debt (Note 5).

 

For the six months ended December 31, 2019, the Company calculated the dilutive impact of the outstanding stock options of 196,250,000, and the convertible debt of $2,080,300, which is convertible into shares of common stock. The stock options and convertible debt were not included in the calculation of net earnings per share, because their impact was antidilutive.

 

For the six months ended December 31, 2018, the Company calculated the dilutive impact of the outstanding stock options of 10,250,000, and the convertible debt of $2,295,800, which is convertible into shares of common stock. The stock options and the convertible debt were not included in the calculation of net earnings per share, because their impact was antidilutive.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Equity Incentive Plan and Stock Options

 

Equity Incentive Plan

 

On December 17, 2018, the Board of Directors approved and adopted the 2019 Equity Incentive Plan (“the Plan”), with 300,000,000 shares set aside and reserved for issuance pursuant to the Plan. The purpose of the Plan is to promote the success of the Corporation and to increase stockholder value by providing an additional means through the grant of awards to attract, motivate, retain and reward selected employees and other eligible persons. The awards are performance-based compensation that are granted under the Plan as incentive stock options (ISO) or nonqualified stock options. The per share exercise price for each option shall not be less than 100% of the fair market value of a share of common stock on the date of grant of the option. The Company periodically issues stock options and warrants to employees and non-employees in non-capital raising transactions for services and for financing cost. The Company accounts for stock option grants issued and vesting to employees and non-employees in accordance with the authoritative guidance of the Financial Accounting Standards Board whereas the value of the stock compensation is based upon the measurement date as determined at either a) the date at which a performance commitment is reached, or b) at the date at which the necessary performance to earn the equity instruments is complete. Non-employee stock-based compensation charges generally are amortized over the vesting period on a straight-line basis. In certain circumstances where there are no future performance requirements by the non-employee, option grants are immediately vested, and the total stock-based compensation charge is recorded in the period of the measurement date.

 

As of December 31, 2019, the Company has granted 186,000,000 shares of convertible equity incentive stock options leaving a reserve of 114,000,000. The shares are convertible into common stock.

 

Stock based Compensation

 

The Company periodically issues stock options and warrants to employees and non-employees in non-capital raising transactions for services and for financing costs. The Company accounts for stock option and warrant grants issued and vesting to employees based on the authoritative guidance provided by the Financial Accounting Standards Board whereas the value of the award is measured on the date of grant and recognized over the vesting period. The Company accounts for stock option and warrant grants issued and vesting to non-employees in accordance with the authoritative guidance of the Financial Accounting Standards Board whereas the value of the stock compensation is based upon the measurement date as determined at either a) the date at which a performance commitment is reached, or b) at the date at which the necessary performance to earn the equity instruments is complete. Non-employee stock-based compensation charges generally are amortized over the vesting period on a straight-line basis. In certain circumstances where there are no future performance requirements by the non-employee, option grants are immediately vested and the total stock-based compensation charge is recorded in the period of the measurement date. As of December 31, 2019, the Company has granted 10,250,000 shares of convertible stock based compensation stock options, which are convertible into common stock.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value of financial instruments, requires disclosure of the fair value information, whether or not recognized in the balance sheet, where it is practicable to estimate that value. As of December 31, 2019, the amounts reported for cash, accrued interest and other expenses, notes payables, convertible notes, and derivative liability approximate the fair value because of their short maturities.

 

We adopted ASC Topic 820 for financial instruments measured as fair value on a recurring basis. ASC Topic 820 defines fair value, established a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.

 

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. ASC Topic 820 established a three-tier fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring 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). These tiers include:

 

Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets;

 

Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable such as quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and

 

Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions, such as valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.

We measure certain financial instruments at fair value on a recurring basis. Assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis are as follows at December 31, 2019 (See Note 6):

 

    Total     (Level 1)     (Level 2)     (Level 3)  
Liabilities                                
Derivative liability measured at fair value at 12/31/19   $ 7,306,889     $ -     $ -     $ 7,306,889  

 

The following is a reconciliation of the derivative liability for which Level 3 inputs were used in determining the approximate fair value:

 

Balance as of June 30, 2019

    3,905,721  
Fair value of derivative liabilities issued     320,807  

Loss on change in derivative liability

    3,080,361  
Balance as of  December 31, 2019   $ 7,306,889  

 

Research and Development

 

Research and development costs are expensed as incurred.  Total research and development costs were $248,234 and $142,570 for the six months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively

 

Accounting for Derivatives

 

The Company evaluates all of its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses a probability weighted average series Binomial lattice formula pricing models to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates.

 

The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2017, FASB issued accounting standards update ASU-2017-12, (Topic 815) – “Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities”, to require an entity to present the earnings effect of the hedging instrument in the same statement line item in which the earnings effect of the hedged item is reported. The amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods with the fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted in any interim period after issuance of the update. The Company does not believe the adoption of ASU-2017 would have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In June 2018, FASB issued accounting standards update ASU 2018-07, (Topic 505) – “Shared-Based Payment Arrangements with Nonemployees”, which simplifies the accounting for share-based payments granted to nonemployees for goods and services. Under the ASU, most of the guidance on such payments to nonemployees will be aligned with the requirements for share-based payments granted to employees. Under the ASU 2018-07, the measurement of equity-classified nonemployee share-based payments will be fixed on the grant date, as defined in ASC 718, and will use the term nonemployee vesting period, rather than requisite service period. The amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted if financial statements have not yet been issued. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of ASU 2018-07 on the Company’s financial statements.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements (Continued)

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued to accounting standards update ASU 2018-13, (Topic 820) - “Fair Value Measurement”, which changes the unrealized gains and losses, the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements, and the narrative description of measurement uncertainty should be applied prospectively for only the most recent interim or annual period presented in the initial fiscal year of adoption. All other amendments should be applied retrospectively to all periods presented upon their effective date. The amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted upon issuance. The Company is currently evaluation the impact of the adoption of ASU 2018-13, on the Company’s financial statements.

The Aug Note may be converted into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of sixty-one (61%) percent of the average of the two (2) lowest trading prices per common stock during the fifteen (15) trading days prior to the conversion date. The conversion feature of the Aug Note was considered a derivative in accordance with current accounting guidelines because of the reset conversion features of the Aug Note. The Company recorded amortization of debt discount, which was recognized as interest expense in the amount of $5,305 during the six months ended December 31, 2019. The balance of the Aug Note as of December 31, 2019 was $80,000.

 

On October 2, 2019, the Company entered into a convertible promissory note with an investor, providing for the sale by the Company of a 10% unsecured convertible note (the “Oct Note”) in the principal amount of $80,000. The Company received funds of $78,000, less other fees of $2,000. The Oct Note matures on October 2, 2020. The Oct Note may be converted into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of sixty-one (61%) percent of the average of the two (2) lowest trading prices per common stock during the fifteen (15) trading days prior to the conversion date. The conversion feature of the Oct Note was considered a derivative in accordance with current accounting guidelines because of the reset conversion features of the Oct Note. The Company recorded amortization of debt discount, which was recognized as interest expense in the amount of $19,672 during the six months ended December 31, 2019. The balance of the Oct Note as of December 31, 2019 was $80,000.

 

On December 2, 2019, the Company entered into convertible promissory note with an investor, providing for the sale by the Company of a 10% unsecured convertible note (the “Dec Note”) in the principal amount of $80,000. The Company received funds of $78,000, less other fees of $2,000. The Dec Note matures on December 2, 2020. The Dec Note may be converted into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of sixty-one (61%) percent of the average of the two (2) lowest trading prices per common stock during the fifteen (15) trading days prior to the conversion date. The conversion feature of the Dec Note was considered a derivative in accordance with current accounting guidelines because of the reset conversion features of the Dec Note. The Company recorded amortization of debt discount, which was recognized as interest expense in the amount of $5,902 during the six months ended December 31, 2019. The balance of the Dec Note as of December 31, 2019 was $80,000.

 

6. DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

ASC Topic 815 provides guidance applicable to convertible debt issued by the Company in instances where the number into which the debt can be converted is not fixed. For example, when a convertible debt converts at a discount to market based on the stock price on the date of conversion, ASC Topic 815 requires that the embedded conversion option of the convertible debt be bifurcated from the host contract and recorded at their fair value. In accounting for derivatives under accounting standards, the Company recorded a liability representing the estimated present value of the conversion feature considering the historic volatility of the Company’s stock, and a discount representing the imputed interest associated with the embedded derivative. The discount is amortized over the life of the convertible debt, and the derivative liability is adjusted periodically according to stock price fluctuations.

 

The convertible notes (the “Notes”) issued do not have fixed settlement provisions because their conversion prices are not fixed. The conversion features have been characterized as derivative liabilities to be re-measured at the end of every reporting period with the change in value reported in the statement of operations.

 

During the six months ended December 31, 2019, as a result of the Notes issued that were accounted for as derivative liabilities, we determined that the fair value of the conversion feature of the convertible notes at issuance was $320,807, based upon the Binomial lattice formula. We recorded the full value of the derivative as a liability at issuance with an offset to valuation discount, which will be amortized over the life of the Notes.

 

During the six months ended December 31, 2019, the Company recorded a net loss in change in derivative of $3,080,361 in the statement of operations due to the change in fair value of the remaining notes, for the six months ended December 31, 2019. At December 31, 2019, the fair value of the derivative liability was $7,306,889.

 

For purpose of determining the fair market value of the derivative liability for the embedded conversion, the Company used the Binomial lattice formula. The significant assumptions used in the Binomial lattice formula of the derivatives are as follows:

 

Risk free interest rate  

1.59% - 1.69%

Stock volatility factor   94.0% - 135.0%
Weighted average expected option life 3 months - 5 year
Expected dividend yield   None

Unless the context otherwise requires, references in this Form 10-Q to “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company” refer to Hypersolar, Inc.

 

Overview

 

At HyperSolar, Inc., our goal is to replace all forms of energy on earth with renewable energy.

 

We refer to our technology as the HyperSolar H2Generator which is comprised of the following components:

 

  1. The Generator Housing - Novel (patent pending) device design is the first of its type to safely separate oxygen and hydrogen in the water splitting process without sacrificing efficiency. This device houses the water, the solar particles/cells and is designed with inlets and outlets for water and gasses. Utilizing a special membrane for separating the oxygen side from the hydrogen side, proton transport is increased which is the key to safely increasing solar-to-hydrogen efficiency. Our design can be scaled up and manufactured for commercial use.

 

  2. The NanoParticle or Solar Cell - Our patented nanoparticle consists of thousands of tiny solar cells that are electrodeposited into one tiny structure to provide the charge that splits the water molecule when the sun excites the electron. In the process of optimizing our nanoparticles to be efficient and only use earth abundant materials (an ongoing process), we experimented with commercially available triple junction silicon solar cells to perform tests with our generator housing and other components. Through this experimentation, our discovery leads us to believe that we can bring a system to market utilizing these readily available cells while our nanoparticles are still being optimized. These solar cells also absorb the sunlight and produce the necessary charge for splitting the water molecule into hydrogen and oxygen.

 

  3. Oxygen Evolution Catalyst - This proprietary catalyst developed at the University of Iowa lab is uniformly applied onto the solar cell or nanoparticle and efficiently oxidize water molecule to generate oxygen gas. The oxygen evolution catalyst must be robust to withstand the long operating hours of the hydrogen generation device to ensure long lifetime. It must be stable in alkaline, neutral and acidic environments.

 

  4. Hydrogen Evolution Catalyst - Necessary for collecting electrons to reduce protons for generating hydrogen gas, we have successfully integrated a low-cost hydrogen catalyst into our generator system successfully coating a triple junction solar cell with a catalyst comprised primarily of ruthenium, carbon and nitrogen that can function as well as platinum, the current catalyst used for hydrogen production, but at one twentieth of the cost.

 

15

 

 

  5. Coating Technologies - Two major coating technologies were developed to protect the nanoparticles and solar cells from photocorrosion under water. A transparent conducive coating to protect our nanoparticles and solar cells from photo corrosion and efficiently transfer charges to catalysts for oxygen and hydrogen evolution reactions. A polymer combination that protects the triple junction solar cells from any corrosive water environments for long lifetime of the hydrogen generation device.

 

  6. A concentrator equal to two suns - This inexpensive Fresnel lens concentrator to increase sunlight to equal two suns reduces our necessary footprint for a 1000 KG per day system by 40%.

 

Our business and commercialization plan calls for two generations of our panels or generators. The first generation utilizes readily available commercial solar cells, coated with a stability polymer and catalysts and inserted into our proprietary panels to efficiently and safely split water into hydrogen and oxygen to produce very pure and green hydrogen that can be piped off the panel, pressurized, and stored for use in a fuel cell to power anything electric.

 

The second generation of our panels will feature a nanoparticle based technology where billions of autonomous solar cells are electrodeposited onto porous alumina sheets and manufactured in a roll to roll process and inserted into our proprietary panels. For this generation, we have received multiple patents and it is estimated that it will produce hydrogen for less than $4 per kilogram before pressurization.

 

Our team at the University of Iowa, led by our CTO Dr. Joun Lee, has reached a milestone of 1000 consecutive hours of continuous hydrogen production utilizing completely immersed solar cells with no external biases achieving simulated production equal to one year. We believe this to be a record for completely immersed cells. Now ready to take our technology out of the lab, we are working with several vendors to commercialize and manufacturer our first generation of renewable hydrogen panels that use sunlight and water to generate hydrogen. We are currently working towards building a pilot plant in mid 2020 adjacent to a large company distribution or fulfillment center so they can power their fuel cell forklifts and materials handling equipment with completely renewable hydrogen vs. having to transport steam-reformed hydrogen where the production process emits tons of harmful emissions and must be transported.

 

We anticipate that the HyperSolar H2Generator will be a self-contained renewable hydrogen production system that requires only sunlight and any source of water. As a result, it can be installed almost anywhere to produce hydrogen fuel at or near the point of distribution, for local use. We believe this model of hydrogen production addresses one of the biggest challenges of using clean hydrogen fuel on a large scale - the transportation of hydrogen.

 

Each stage of the HyperSolar H2Generator can be scaled independently according to the hydrogen demands and length of storage required for a specific application. A small-scale system can be used to produce continuous renewable electricity for a small house, or a large scale system can be used to produce hydrogen to power a community. 

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon 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 us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to impairment of property, plant and equipment, intangible assets, deferred tax assets and fair value computation using the Binomial valuation option pricing model. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions, such as the trading value of our common stock and estimated future undiscounted cash flows, that we believe 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 or conditions; however, we believe that our estimates, including those for the above-described items, are reasonable.

Use of Estimates

 

In accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, management utilizes estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. These estimates and assumptions relate to useful lives and impairment of tangible and intangible assets, accruals, income taxes, stock-based compensation expense, Binomial lattice valuation model inputs, derivative liabilities and other factors. Management believes it has exercised reasonable judgment in deriving these estimates. Consequently, a change in conditions could affect these estimates.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value of financial instruments, requires disclosure of the fair value information, whether or not recognized in the balance sheet, where it is practicable to estimate that value. As of December 31, 2019, the amounts reported for cash, accrued interest and other expenses, notes payables, and derivative liability approximate the fair value because of their short maturities.

 

We adopted ASC Topic 820 for financial instruments measured as fair value on a recurring basis. ASC Topic 820 defines fair value, established a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Management reviewed currently issued pronouncements during the six months ended December 31, 2019, and does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the accompanying condensed financial statements. Pronouncements disclosed in notes to the financials.

 

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

 

Operating Expenses

 

Operating expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2019 were $450,230 and $342,863 for the prior period ended December 31, 2018. The net increase of $107,367 in operating expenses consisted primarily of an increase in non-cash stock compensation expense and consulting fees of $156,851, an increase in research and development of $36,857, with an overall decrease in operating expenses of $86,341.

 

Other Income/(Expenses)

 

Other income and (expenses) for the three months ended December 31, 2019 were $(2,830,056) and $(3,672,942) and for the prior period ended December 31, 2018. The decrease in other expenses of $842,886 in other income and (expenses) was the result of a decrease in non-cash loss in net change in derivative of $396,288, a decrease in non-cash net change in settlement of debt of $623,594, with an increase in interest expense of $16,926, which includes non-cash amortization of debt discount of $17,664.

 

Net Income/(Loss)

 

For the three months ended December 31, 2019, our net loss was $(3,280,286) as compared to $(4,015,805) for the prior period December 31, 2018. The majority of the decrease in net loss of $735,519 was related primarily to the decrease in net change of derivative instruments estimated each period. These estimates are based on multiple inputs, including the market price of our stock, interest rates, our stock price, volatility, variable conversion prices based on market prices defined in the respective agreements and probabilities of certain outcomes based on managements’ estimates. These inputs are subject to significant changes from period to period, therefore, the estimated fair value of the derivative liabilities will fluctuate from period to period, and the fluctuation may be material. The Company has not generated any revenues.

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

 

Operating Expenses

 

Operating expenses for the six months ended December 31, 2019 were $966,120  and $558,365 for the prior period ended December 31, 2018. The net increase of $407,755  in operating expenses consisted primarily of an increase in non-cash stock compensation expense and consulting fees of $403,845, an increase in research and development of $105,665, and other operating expenses of $4,832, with an overall decrease in investor relations of $106,587.

 

Other Income/(Expenses)

 

Other income and (expenses) for the six months ended December 31, 2019 were $(3,566,896) and $(962,209) and for the prior period ended December 31, 2018. The increase in other expenses of $2,604,687 in other income and (expenses) was the result of an increase in non-cash loss in net change in derivative instruments of $2,645,988, a decrease in non-cash net change in conversion of debt of $234,834, with an increase in interest expense of $193,532, which includes non-cash amortization of debt discount of $185,237.

 

Net Income/(Loss)

 

For the six months ended December 31, 2019, our net loss was $4,533,022 as compared to $1,520,574 for the prior period ended December 31, 2018. The majority of the decrease in net income of $3,012,448, was related primarily to the increase in net change of derivative instruments estimated each period. These estimates are based on multiple inputs, including the market price of our stock, interest rates, our stock price, volatility, variable conversion prices based on market prices defined in the respective agreements and probabilities of certain outcomes based on managements’ estimates. These inputs are subject to significant changes from period to period, therefore, the estimated fair value of the derivative liabilities will fluctuate from period to period, and the fluctuation may be material. The Company has not generated any revenues.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate funds to support its current and future operations, satisfy its obligations, and otherwise operate on an ongoing basis. Significant factors in the management of liquidity are funds generated by operations, levels of accounts receivable and accounts payable and capital expenditures.

 

As of December 31, 2019, we had a working capital deficit of $8,124,474 as compared to $4,829,162 as of June 30, 2019. This increase in working capital deficit of $3,295,312 was due primarily to an increase in cash, accrued expenses, derivative liability, with a decrease in prepaid expenses, accounts payable, and convertible promissory notes.

 

Cash used in operating activities was $323,673 for the six months ended December 31, 2019 and $448,850 for the prior period ended December 31, 2018. The decrease in cash used in operating activities was primarily due to an decrease in research and development cost and insurance, with an overall decrease in operating expenses. The Company has had no revenues.

 

Cash used in investing activities during the six months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 was $781 and $13,062, respectively. The decrease in investing activities was due to less fixed assets purchased in the current period.

 

18

 

 

Cash provided by financing activities during the six months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 was $346,500 and $415,500, respectively. The decrease is a result of an decrease in equity financing. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon raising capital through financing transactions and future revenue. Our capital needs have primarily been met from the proceeds of private placements of our security, as we currently have not generated any revenues.

 

The condensed unaudited financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis of accounting, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets and liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements do not reflect any adjustments that might result if we are unable to continue as a going concern. During the six months ended December 31, 2019, we did not generate any revenues, incurred net loss of $4,533,022, which was primarily associated with the net change in derivative instruments. We had a working capital deficiency of $8,124,474 and a shareholders’ deficit of $9,757,462. These factors, among others raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our independent auditors, in their report on our audited financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2018, expressed substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern ultimately is dependent on our ability to generate revenue, which is dependent upon our ability to obtain additional equity or debt financing, attain further operating efficiencies and, ultimately, achieve profitable operations. We have historically obtained funds from our shareholders through the sale of our securities. Management believes that we will be able to continue to raise funds through the sale of our securities to existing and new investors. Management believes that funding from existing and prospective new investors and future revenue will provide the additional cash needed to meet our obligations as they become due, and will allow the development of our core business operations.

 

PLAN OF OPERATION AND FINANCING NEEDS

 

Our plan of operation within the next twelve months is to further research, develop, and protect our technology.

 

We believe that our current cash balances will be sufficient to support development activity, intellectual property protection, and all general and administrative expenses for the next 30 days. Management estimates that we will require additional cash resources for the remainder of 2020, based upon our current operating plan and condition. We are investigating additional financing alternatives, including continued equity and/or debt financing. There can be no assurance that capital in any form would be available to us, and if available, on terms and conditions that are acceptable. If we are unable to obtain sufficient funds, we may be forced to reduce the size of our operations, which could have a material adverse impact on, or cause us to curtail and/or cease the development of our products.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, revenues or expenses, result of operations, liquidity or capital expenditures.
